Why Is This Called F... Again

Once upon a time, while in a school in USSR (and later in Eastern Europe) the bane of my existence was the "F... Again" picture by Reshetnikov. This "pinnacle of socialist realism" was a recurring topic for essays both homework and in class. It was one of the most reviled student torture tools in the schoolmonster's armoury. I hated with passion every single minute when I had to commiserate with the "poor mother", empathise with the "straight A communist youth (pioneer) sister" and join the chorus of condemnation against the dunce who brought yet another F from school. In fact, deep inside my heart I was commiserating with the poor dunce and applauding the only creature treating him nicely - the family mutt.

The OPCW Whistleblower Report or When in Doubt Always Go For the Man, Not the Ball

There is an old saying - you do not win an argument by ad Hominem. This clearly has to be amended in this day and age: "You do win an argument by ad Hominem - if there is a media campaign to support you". While the ultimate master of this is unquestionably Donald Trump, it is in fact in use by everyone including all the ones who criticise him for using it like surprise, surprise, our best beloved liberal newspaper - The Guardian.

The Ethylamine Elephant in the Corner of the Sarin Room

Once and again, I had a feeling of Deja Vu while observing the various proceedings in the spectacle of mutual accusations around the OPCW Douma report and the OPCW Leaks. It has been gnawing me for weeks that there is something missing here and everyone keeps carefully trying to skirt it. It finally got to me yesterday - what is missing is Ammonia Avenue. Yes, it is a joke - one which is based solidly on top of an F... Again in Chemistry which may in fact go to me.

Another Day Another "Evidence to Match the Narrative" Job - just like MH017

Our best beloved "Liberal Values" rag The Guardian has once again got me into a facepalm state. They really love to push a dubious narrative if spoon fed to them by their handler. And in doing so they as usually do a whole sequence of F... Agains in investigative journalism, physics, etc.

Did Ukraine influence our politics (including elections) during the last 5 years?

Time and again I see this claim in various liberal articles: "Ukraine influence is a fake news conspiracy theory". It usually goes along in one sentence with "proven Russian interference". I usually do not comment on matters which are nearly 100% political and have virtually zero scientific quotient. In this particular case I will make an exception as the level of F... Again in this statement is off the scale.

The Horrifying Threat from the Warsaw Pact. Truth or yet another piece of NATO propaganda?

One of the oldest and most promoted NATO propaganda spiels was "the hideous threat from a Warsaw Block Attack". This propaganda piece is as old NATO itself and it is essential for the self-sustaining nature of the block. It needed constant justification to feed itself so it continued to overblow the threat of invasion to ensure its funding in a manner similar to the one it used to reinvent the Russian threat after 1991. This spiel has always been an obvious F... Again in analysis.

Was Eastern Europe Communist? It was not - their form of government was a Theocracy

Another day, another facepalm. I am reading the comment section on the Guardian to the rather excellent article called "The task of politics today is to scare the capitalists as much as communism did" by and I keep facepalming. How can people be so clueless and how bad is our education to produce such a pervasive F...

F35 - the Ultimate Case of Stealth Kool Aid Intoxication

I recently came across this article originally published by SINA (Chinese State News Agency). I apologise for the rather horrible Google translation, but that is the level of machine translation we get today. 

BrExit - the ultimate Distraction Burglary

This is yet another F... Again, this time in Psychology. Ever wondered why people continue to persist in their BrExit belief? Ever seen a decent explanation? No, and it is not surprising as all the King's Man of our esteemed Liberal Media supported by all of the Stink Tanks feeding them with Stinking ideas have failed to see it for what it is - Distraction Burglary. It is the same spiel which fortune tellers have used to pray on market goers (and more recently rich tourists) for a millennium (or more).

Did Russians Swing the 2016 Election - Maybe. There is a Lithany of F... Agains in the Analysis.

So, according to Mr Mueller, the Russians meddled in the last elections. The non-classified portions of his report as well as the publicly available indictments make for a very interesting reading:
