 Watching The Income Tax System Implode

When it comes to our tax systems, we are living in caveman times

In the movie The Day After Tomorrow, survivors stranded in a library are easily persuaded to burn the multi-volume IRS Tax Code to stay warm. In this fictional scenario, the question one might ask before securing a match: Why did we wait until the end of the world?

New Unmanned Long Range Bomber May Be On The Horizon

New Unmanned Long Range Bomber May Be On The Horizon 

 Current B2 Spirit

Technology is now the driving force behind evolution. As new and better things come out, we have to adapt to them and sometimes change our entire lifestyle. One of the best examples of this is how we defend our country. Unmanned vehicles are putting more and more distance between our troops and dangerous situations and the next generation of bombers may adopt the same technology.

What Happens when Countries Go Bankrupt?

What Happens when Countries Go Bankrupt?
The International Monetary Fund has already helped out Ukraine, Iceland and Hungary.
If many more countries need assistance, the IMF may need help of its own.

First it was mortgage lenders. Then large banks began to wobble. Now, entire countries, including Ukraine and Pakistan, are facing financial ruin. The International Monetary Fund is there to help, but its pockets are only so deep. (Pics)

Coolest Satellite to Orbit Earth, Ever

 

Coolest Satellite to Orbit Earth, Ever

Feature: highly accurate mapping

The European Space Agency is set to launch the Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) Star Destroyer satellite on September 10th. This advanced mission will be the most sophisticated piece of kit ever to orbit the Earth, investigating the Earth’s gravitational field. It will perform a highly accurate mapping campaign, producing a high resolution reference shape of the geoid (i.e. the shape of our planet). The mission will be unprecedented, but that’s not the reason why I’m drawing attention to it…

Six Micronations You Can Join (Petoria, anyone?)

micronation

Admit it – you’ve thought about what life would be like if you ruled your own country. I would make an awesome Queen, just for the record. Diet Coke would flow from kitchen faucets, scientists would put all of the vitamins and minerals you need into low-calorie mint-chocolate chip ice cream and the Killers would sing our national anthem. OK, so maybe not everyone would want to live in Conradtia, but that’s fine. I’ll declare myself a micronation. Micronations usually exist only on paper or in the minds of their creators and aren’t recognized by governments or organizations or anything like that (so… maybe Conradtia already exists?!). Although some micronations actually have their own currency, stamps, passports, flags and other “national” memorabilia, none of it is considered valid except to the people who, well, consider it valid. If that makes any sense. It’s different than an imaginary country, because in this case the “rulers” of the micronations actively seek to be recognized by world governments.

Now that we’ve established that, let’s take a look at a few micronations.
