#1 Still working on the cause / effect principle. After they master that, probably somewhere around 2100-2200, we will give them the wheel and the plow. That will keep them busy until the next millenium. The debate continue on whether to ever give them fire.

#3 I get this visual - manna from Heaven... Only these are Paleos, not thankful Jooos, so they immediately start bitching... Why no zatar? Where's the laban? What, no hummus? This isn't as good as my mother used to make...

And God finally just says, "Aw, fuck it." and blasts the bitches off the face of the planet.

#4 The subtle language of the Holy QkUran has 64 variations of ingratitude. It's important to the speakers. Like snow to Eskimaux.

#6 Funny. Israel is a tiny country. You'd think, like the rest of the world, the Paleo's might be able to get their flour elsewhere. But it appears they can only get it from hated Israel. Go figure.

#11 2b, the Israelis control all access into / out of Gaza. They patrol the sea approaches and man checkpoints on the roads and of course it is walled. The only exception is the Rafah crossing into Egypt and that is currently only open to people, not goods. An additional crossing is planned but is held up pending an agreement on it between the Palestinian govt and Israel.

Data and (near the end of the file) a map here.

#13 ANNNNNNNNNNNNNNND, the Israelis have the Big Knife Switch™ for electric power, as well as the Big A$$ed Gate Valve™ for water. The Paleos have all the saline wells they can handle. The Paleos have sh*t royally into their own mess kit.

#15 Israel's destroyed all the tunnels into Egypt?

If arms can find their way in, so can flour.

#16 There's no money in flour, but arms importing seems to be a big profit enterprise. Maybe flour has to be more scarce befire it is worth importing. Supply and demand thing, ya know. Econ 101.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
