I really am bored... So here's this:

The fall of the empire -- stories about the end of America -- bankrupt states, bankrupt politics, unemployment, and freakout.

Dead people roundup. -- Obits and so on, instead of a new thread for each British actor and former president that keels over.

Garbage World, which is the thread I just started for "casual pollution" stories like people who put their motor oil in Lake Tittywaca because that's what daddy always did.

Archeology For all of your page 20, small print stories on new archaeological finds. (And theories on the unknown!)

America: 2012 primarily about the Open Skies agreement, but also generally about EU hegemony here in poor little America.

Black Gold & Green Earth Oil news, and alternative energy.

Tales from Mother Russia Tsar Putin and the coming global conquest.  Hope you all like boiled cabbage.

Dying Alone, sad suburbanites with no friends lie undiscovered and munched on by cats for days, months, years, and occasionally decades.

Back to the Mattress (second thread) America's economic woes.

Bush Admin news Mainly focused on domestic policies and carious horrors.

Stupid headlines Just a collection of idiot headlines and typos from the modern media.

RC's book of killers -- Serial killer news from around the world.

Warchild -- Gulf War/Afghanistan news from the post-surge era (2007-onwards).

Dreaming of Mother Abigail -- The super-virus news thread.

The Republic is Burning A poor attempt to gather theory and opinion (and news) on how the American Century is well and truly over.

Euro Me News on the Euro and EU in general.

DC Metro Where you can post my obit when my train runs into a cinderblock.

Olympic Hell

The Hadron Collider

That's saved me from reading all those threads!

Summarize, pls.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

You can use an image host, or attachments under the "other options" box at the bottom of the post.

I can only attach images in certain forums... In this one, for instance, I cannot attach images to my posts.  I think it's just my individual fucked-up-ness.

No, it's me fucking up permissions.  I'll see if I can fix that.  What other forums give you trouble?

So much for getting out of Afghanistan....

Quote
The previously unknown deposits — including huge veins of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and critical industrial metals like lithium — are so big and include so many minerals that are essential to modern industry that Afghanistan could eventually be transformed into one of the most important mining centers in the world, the United States officials believe.

An internal Pentagon memo, for example, states that Afghanistan could become the “Saudi Arabia of lithium,” a key raw material in the manufacture of batteries for laptops and BlackBerrys.
