The invisible gorilla and eat your carrots from Gringo

If you watched Gringo, a video by Amazon Studios, then you saw the constant references to gorillas Harry ironically points out in the movie. If you havent watched it you can watch it free here. As you may have guessed the references are from real world studies.  Here is a quick video to refresh your memory on the first one.



The first one is the carrots and bananas experiment.  Richard(Ironic name, huh) tells Harry about a book he read it in.   The movie references a book titled Dear Darwin: Experiments with Apes and Man.  The experiment and book may be real, but I was unable to find any info on the book. Making a fake book cover  is pretty simple.  However, a very real book on his shelf in the scene where he displays the Dear Darwin book was The Art Of War.  The Art Of War was probably displayed to show he was a strategic businessman.  I like to provide visuals so I found a similar experiment with cucumbers and grapes. The parallel should be apparent. The short video is actually kind of funny. 



The video is about unequal pay. Obviously the sweetness of a grape is of more value to a monkey than the taste of a cucumber.  The parallel can be seen in the example from the movie about the banana and the carrot which is referenced at the end.  In the movie this example may have been substituted for continuity, simplicity and that neat ending.  Continuity of the use of gorillas sets Harry up to say the hilarious line(Im sure you were thinking), "Why is everyone talking about Gorillas!?"

Later on his wife Bonnie tells him a story about a gorilla experiment involving a ball.  I was able to find a video on this, and spotting the gorilla isn't as tricky as you may have thought. Counting the passes is a bit more tricky.  How did you do?


The final allusion is an outlier about a bear, and is similar to an old tale about a village and a tiger.  The kids in the village find a baby tiger and raise it.  The village elder warns them that the tiger should not be kept as a pet.  The people ignore the elders warnings.  A child gets injured and starts bleeding. The tiger licks the wound and the taste of blood sends him on a killing spree wiping out the village.  The bear allusion is a truncated version of that story.

Easiest way to keep your gaming peripherals clean!


Here is a quick and easy way to keep all your gaming peripherals(controllers, mice, keyboards, ect) clean.  It is by far the easiest way.  Other methods were using disposable alcohol pads and water with paper towels. This way eliminates all of that expense and waste.

It should cost you nothing to do it. Because you are recycling something that should be replaced, for sanitary, reasons before its physical failure date.  Save time, money and the planet!
Hope this helps or at least inspires you to clean your nasty devices.  Drop a comment at the FB page, YT or on Twitter.

Fortnite Battle Royale Cosplay based on popular outfits, skins and cosmetics

Fortnite

Fortnite is a wildly popular game.  Cosplay is a way for fans to show how much they like the hobby.
The Fortnite cosplay list(will be continuously updated check back often) is a simple easy way to compile a list of gear that you can order online and wear to Comic Cons, Parties or out to a chicken dinner, or while watching Sssniperwolf play Fortnite: Battle Royale.

Fortnite skins are based on a standard rarity system(Green, Blue, Purple, Gold). There are even skins that will never be released again.  The only way to(without illegally buying an account) have them is to have bought them when they were released.
The Glider/Umbrealla(to enter the map) and the Harvesting Tool(to gain resources) are the two main devices, aside from weapons, that can be used in the game. The links will take you to a list for those devices as this list would be too long.  Sssniperwolf

Expedition Unknown gear list

Here is a gear list for Expedition Unknown Season 5.  Season 5 covers Josh Gates' on his treasure hunting of Vikings, Nazis, Egypt, and many episodes in Central America(Mormons will like 10 and 11)  As much of the gear was identified as was possible from his gear to wardrobe.
His boots appeared to change frequently and there wasn't much focus on them. If you happen to recognize them from a given episode be sure to leave a message so the list can be updated.

PERSISTENT GEAR

The persistent gear used throughout the season involves stuff he is typically wearing or packs with him. The specific notable gear used in particular episodes will be broken down by episode.

His necklace is just an old necklace he got from England as a child. It is his travel superstition and as he calls it his "travel necklace"(2min YT link of Gates telling about it).

The wrist beads he wears in just about every episode.
His headlamp is a standard AAA battery headlamp buy a quality manufacturer.
He carries a $100 single blade folding pocket knife when he travels.  I dont recommend such an expensive single use knife for travel.
He recommends this Travel Adapter that he uses.
He carries a large Moleskin Notebook.
He carries these just in case.
His basic meds are Cipro antibiotics for bad food and water, Z-pak antibiotic for head and lungs and Pepto-bismol chewables.
His iconic "Crusher" hat.

EPISODE 10/11

Flashlight is used to illuminate the hole they drill in the structure after they find a void with GPR.

He seems to have the same style of shirt in various colors.

He seems to have the same style of pants in various colors.


He wore these the entire time he was in the jungle for these two episodes.



EPISODE 12


The device he used to pinpoint the Nazi coin hit he got with the metal detector.

Flashlight  is used to illuminate the basement area and dish storage room.

Will you fight for independence?


It is actually a coincidence that this article is coming out on July 4th, but I couldn't pick a better time for it to coincide with.  The significance of  7.4.1776 should be more than cookouts and fireworks.  There is a concept that the rest of the world thinks should have influence on what is done in the US that concept goes against the US sovereignty.  The US is the way it is because of its freedoms.  How people can somehow seek to change what it is and still expect it to remain successful is puzzling. Around the world citizens are starting to fight back against the oppressing external forces that are against their way of life.  Here are just a few.

UNITED STATES



The US is beginning to feel the squeeze of oppression that it has been insulated from for a long time.  As tensions grow, the ones seeking change are the ones that should be questioned not the ones who seek to keep the status quo or freedom.  All of the concessions that the seekers of change are working toward directly impact freedom, and it should scare you.   



SOUTH AFRICA


South Africa is being hit hard by an agenda currently starting to take rise in the US.  Identity politics and income inequality are the basis for the murdering of white farmers in South Africa.  The problem is private property ownership is being abolished and "redistributed" to people based on race.  John Adams warned us about this in 1787 in his Defence of the Constitutions of the Government of the United States.
"Debts would be abolished first; Taxes laid heavy on the rich, and not at all o the others; and at at last a downright equal division of everything be demanded, and voted."
Adams' quote should scare you because it is exactly what leftist groups like Antifa and BLM are advocating for along with gun control.  Despite where the argument is misdirected, guns are a constitutional right(in the US) in order to prevent an unjust government.


MEXICO

Mexico has its own reasons for armed resistance.  Currently the resistance in Mexico is fragmented and doesnt really have a unifying symbol or flag.  Drug cartels are running many of the rural areas.  Local government officials from the cops up to the mayors are corrupt.  Cartels carry out killings with no consequences in many areas.  One source puts murder prosecution down as low as 10%.
The people of Mexico have had enough.  Their lives and livelihoods are being taken from them.  Local businessmen are standing up militias armed by mercenaries and volunteers to take back control from the cartels.
Cartels are international terrorist that are affecting the US in the form of large drug funded gangs.

EASTERN BLOC


The eastern bloc nations of the former USSR(Hungary, Bulgaria, Croatia, Poland, Romania, ect) are extremely vigilant against oppressive governments.  It is no coincidence they are defensive when it comes to Islamic immigration.  Islam is more than a religion.  Islam is an oppressive political ideology and not a religion.  Bulgaria has a group called BNO Shipka. They are associated with a wider group called Knights Templar International.  Hungary is out spoken as a country against Islamic immigration and openly and actively invites disenfranchised Europeans to take refuge in its Christian country.
Illegal immigration is a forced political paradigm shift from freedom to a strict adherence to Sharia Law.  Sharia Law should be opposed on every front.  It is antithetical to established law in the US. Legal immigration is at the will of the government, and is dependent on immigrants willingness to assimilate US values.  If US values are antithetical to immigrants values then why do they want to come here? 



SYRIA


Syria has been a proxy war for some time.  Fighters from all over the globe are converging on Syria to fight on both sides.  Some under the banner of governments in coalitions and others as independent freedom fighters.  The fight here is for the political ideology of oppression that is Islam. Syria is already Islamic, but for some that is not good enough.  Daesh(ISIS) is the vehicle for terrorism and oppressive government.
Syria is what will happen when the war comes to the US.  The US has been insulated by the wisdom of the founding fathers and the design of the Constitution.  The Constitution is slowly being eroded. Not only must the Constitution be protected from foreign enemies, but it also must be protected from domestic enemies seeking to corrupt it from within.


UKRAINE 


Ukraine had the unique experience of being invaded by a foreign country for a mere land grab.  Today that is largely unheard of.  Russia made a move into Ukraine and Ukraine's military was unready for the event.  Seeing the government was unable to protect them from the Russians, the people formed volunteer militias to fight. The Ukrainian Insurgent Army initially activated in WW2 under the flag above.  It has recently been activated under the same flag fighting the same ideal. The acting leader of the country was wise enough to see this force and utilize it in preservation of the country.  The documentary places a diabolical spin on the milita, but Vice is pretty far left. The reporter is visibly under the influence of drugs for most of the filming. 
We look to China and their claims on Taiwan and the small islands to its south that it keeps trying to arm.  Korea has cooled down for the moment, but who knows how that will evolve.  Our allies could drag us into a war.  It is nice being isolated by vast oceans, but Hawaii and Guam are geographically vulnerable.  The contiguous states are not out of reach with current technology.  What if that war comes to the US? 


These current events should be a warning to those who have freedom and are all to familiar to those who have lost it.  There WILL come a time that you will have to stop talking and start fighting for it.  Are you willing? How far will you let it get? It is a tough decision to make.  The oppressors count on the restraint of the people to slowly get used to their rights being eroded.  Be vigilant.
"The best prophet of the future is the past." -Lord Byron
