Snippet




…This week, I don't have any particular topic to address in detail, so once again I will just riff on the latest in Doom Newz making its way out over packets of digibits to my laptop here on the Last Great Frontier.



 



The big newz of the week for the Doomstead Diner was the publication of results from the Doomer personality survey. Unsurprisingly, most Doomers haunting the collapse Blogosphere are White Males from North America. Females appear to be around 15% of the Doom Community online. Doomers appear to be pretty well educated folks, most hold at least a baccalaureate degree, and according to the Online Free IQ test are also astoundingly “intelligent” people, with an average IQ coming in over 130! A HUGELY disproportianate number of Doomers are GENIUSES with an IQ over 150 too! The results from 2 weeks of Data Collection are up on the Diner, but the Survey is still open so if you want to contribute your numbers for the next data compilation, you still can do that.



 



OK, now on to other Doom Newz from around the net, starting with the MSM via the Google Newz aggregation site. I mostly do not actually read these articles, just the headlines. LOL.



 



Ohio voters just rejected legalizing marijuana and Houston voters rejected a broad anit-discrimation bill. I am crossing Ohio and Houston off my list of decent places left to live anymore. LOL…

Your mention of Chipotle reminded me that there is a smear campaign against them because they try and avoid GMO foods in their menu.  [http://www.prwatch.org/news/2015/09/12935/rick-berman-attacks-chipotle-corporate-clients]  Got to keep the food suppliers in line, ya know.

Hi Kev, Nice to hear from you. See you have been around for a while lurking. Glad you stepped out, it's a pleasure to meet you, and yes they have really tried to serve good wholesome food from what I read, excellent reputation.

The scuzz balls clearly have motivation.                                                                                :hi:

I am glad Chipotle tries to source good quality food.

 Unfortunately they do so via the global supply chain model, and their grass fed beef mostly comes from Down Under rather than from local farms. So I'd not give them an A for sustainable practice.

The guacamole and tacos are really good at this local joint I go to...can walk to it if need be.  Have no idea how healthy their food is but local is usually better IMO.

At least Taco Bell is somewhat "honest" -

Led by the Monsanto/Syngenta lobby, no doubt.
