Labourlist and the Huffington Post

I spotted on Labourlist yesterday that one of my favourite comics, Ammando Iannucci had contributed an article. What really interested me was the announcement that Labourlist and the HuffPo were now "partners" and would cross post "punchy and witty" articles.

The Huffington Post is probably the most widely read blog on the Planet, yet I could see no references to Labourlist anywhere.

In the meantime, Amando seems a little fucked off that Labourlist even published an article by him. To quote his twitter:

It seems Alex Smith is going to use the same methods the previous editor used. Total 100% freshly shat bullshit.

Way to go Alex.....

Huffington Post. Intelligent. They put Ron Broxteds article on "Men who have sex with men" (repressed gays) on. You know, chaps who live in Eaton Socon, drive a BMW. LabourList. Oneoffthe wrist. Unintelligent. Want me to carry an ID card. Land fit for heroes. Still waiting.

OH, I think it's Alex Smith, not Hilton. Alex Hilton is the sensible one on LabourHome. Incidentally, it says Alex Smith is Deputy Ed - so who's Ed?Excellent article on ID cards by that Kit Leary. Saw your contribution - really good - congrats.

Alex Smith won't turn a hair at this. After all, it is a blog for Labour supporters who see nothing wrong with their party lying 100% of the time. It's only fitting that the blog mirrors that.

They've called in plod to investigate the leak! Fuck me, they are a bunch of twats. See Guido for details.

OH other than Guido the fake `Libertarian`, no one gives a shit about this pathetic person or his pathetic blog!

Plenty of real issues to deal with and investigate - none of which Guido will touch - Guido only does political mincing and censorship!

Time to call time on these pathetic side shows, put on by clowns for the amusement of clowns.

Some of the better anarchists out there started as libertarians until they got bold enough to think it the *rest* of the way through.

I remember the days when the police were a force and acted on behalf of the community. Not anymore though. The police are now the official bodyguards/investigators for the government.

A sad day indeed.

It's difficult to say this without sounding like a twat but fuck you all. I can't smoke pot unless I drink and I love soking pot. I also love opera and Iannucci did an opera for Opera North which followed the last performance of the season; needless to say - it was absolute shite. Unless you are a genuis you need mezzo sopranos.

Bring them on. As if the Huffington Post won anything from anyone. Drivel.

Obtaining the Aluminum
1) Go to a machine shop. They will usually give you aluminum powder for sweeping the floor or something.
2) Break open an Etch-A-Sketch, the stuff inside is pure aluminum powder.
3) Go to a paint store, they usually have powdered aluminum that people use to mix into paints to give it pigment.
4) Get a grinder, and something made of aluminum. Good ideas are soda cans, bike frames, and lacrosse sticks. Start grinding the aluminum and collect the sparks in a container.
5) Search eBay, they sell it for pretty cheap.

Obtaining the Iron Oxide (Rust)
1) Take some steel wool then put it in a jar and then cover it wool with water. Use a magnet to make sure the steel wool doesnt float during the reaction process. Next, put in 5 tablespoons of regular bleach into the water and 5 tablespoons of regular vinager. Wait a day or so and then filter the brown paste with a coffee filter. Leave it out to dry overnight.
2) Go to a paint store, they usually have powdered iron oxide that people use to mix into paints to give it pigment.
3) Connect wires to a direct current (9-volt battery), strip both ends and put them into a saltwater solution. Let them sit for five minutes. One of them will start bubbling more than the other. This is the POSITIVE(+) wire. Put a nail tied to the positive wire into the jar. Now put the negative wire in the other end. Now let it sit overnight and in the morning scrape the rust off of the nail & repeat until you have a bunch of rust on the bottom of the glass. Let it dry out, and crush it into a powder.
4) Search eBay, they sell it for pretty cheap.

Mixing the Stuff
Thermite is 8 grams of iron oxide to 3 grams of aluminum. The formula is by weight but because aluminum is very light, it will appear to be approximately a 50-50 mix. Put them together in a container and mix them until it is an even mixture. If you want, mix four parts thermite with one part clay or Play-Doh and knead thoroughly for moldable thermite.

Thermite needs a lot of heat to light, that means magnesium. Find some magnesium ribbon, or a sparkler that contains magnesium and put it into a pile of thermite. Light it with a torch, and run!

What is a "twat-thumper" is this a term for lesbian or a heterosexual male?
Wanting "his or her cock for salad"
Is this a bi-sexual reference?
Sorry, I'm lost on the New Man vernacular. I don't understand the Twitter. Seriously.

Can you help Mr Holborn - in-between preparing to blow up the Houses of Parliament?
