10 RANDOM THINGS THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW (Pt1/2 & Pt2/2)

Soooo, dear English thinking-reading-watching visitor, here they come two conspiracy theory mockery videos the gang did for YouTube.

Because THEY hide you things, you know, like, all sort of important things, like, where is the missing sock or, like, why Firefly was shut down after only 1 season while something like Andromeda lasted 5? So there are things that THEY don't want you to know,  'cause if you knew those things, like,  you could, like, do things, right? And then THEY could lose control over those things and other things and stuff, and you'd know all THEIR things then and, like, be free and stuff...
 

So these are ten of those things.

Watch and enjoy!

Il complotto del numero 1.
Il numero UNO non è un numero reale, è l'acronimo del progetto Ultra Neuroni Organizzati. Da quando il Gruppo Cavemenberg ha spazzatovia in tutto il mondo gli Illuminati al solstizio dell'autunno del 29 febbraio 1313, il progetto Ultra Neuroni Organizzati è stato messo in atto e il numero 1 è diventato uno strumento di manipolazione mentale. Nascosto segretamente in ogni 1, vi è in effetti un codice barbequer, ovvero una versione implementata di codice a barre, qr-code e salsa barbeque, il tutto mischiato assieme. La funzione del codice di barbequer è quella di inviare stimoli subliminali alla mente dei lettori dell'1. Questi stimoli inducono le persone a visitare i siti web delle multinazionali delle lobby dei portieri di calcio e dei matematici e ad acquistare i loro prodotti. Questi prodotti, a loro volta, sono dotati di microchip che emettono onde radio che indeboliscono il sistema limbico del buon gusto delle persone e in ultima analisi costringono le persone a contrarre debiti per comprare sempre più cianfrusaglie, e a diventare orgogliosi sagger, così che, alla fine, il governo può controllarli e identificarli più facilmente.

L'intrigo di Dodo.
I Dodo non si sono estinti nel XV secolo, come ESSI ti insegnano nei biscotti della fortuna. Tutti gli animali di questa specie sono stati trasferiti in una base segreta nella foresta amazzonica nel 1973 come parte di una copertura globale operata dai servizi segreti del mondo. I Dodo sono infatti le uniche creature in grado di combattere gli alieni di Roswell e sconfiggerli. Grazie ai loro sistema immunitario, conformazione fisica e andatura, questi mammiferi non volanti sono infatti le uniche creature del mondo in grado di resistere alle letali difese biochimiche dei Grigi e di avvicinarsi abbastanza agli alieni così da piazzare armi offensive come bombe ad alto potenziale o registrazioni audio di qualsiasi dj set di Skrillex.

3)

La macchinazione dello zucchero
Lo zucchero non è dolce, in realtà ha il sapore della pancetta, ma a Hoboken, il presidente della lobby degli allevatori ha vinto un incontro di curling con il CEO della lobby dei dolcificanti e, di conseguenza, è stato fatto un accordo: la pancetta, che in origine sapev di ananas, è stata alterata chimicamente e per darle il sapore della pancetta, mentre lo zucchero è stato reso dolce. Per quanto riguarda gli antichi ananas, sono stati completamente spazzati via e sostituiti con quelli attuali perché sia ​​la lobby degli allevatori che la lobby dei dolcificanti non sopportavano la lobby degli ananas.

4)

Le scie chimiche non raccontate.
Le scie chimiche non sono prodotte da aerei, sono prodotte da super-uccelli geneticamente modificati. I laboratori biologici segreti dei governi delle nazioni più potenti del mondo hanno creato una nuova specie di uccelli che possono volare nella ionosfera alla velocità di un jet. Gli uccelli volano in stormi enormi e le loro penne riflettono la luce del sole in modo che dientano invisibili all'occhio umano e ai radar. Gli uccelli bioingegnerizzati, una volta raggiunta una certa altitudine, rilasciano un composto gassoso intestinale che, miscelandosi con l'ozono dell'atmosfera, si trasforma in una sostanza che, una volta assorbita dalla pelle umana, fa in modo che le ascelle delle persone sudino e puzzino e quindi rendano le persone più inclini ad accettare il nuovo ordine mondiale perché si sentono a disagio nel sollevare le braccia e i pugni per protestare.

5)

La cospirazione cospirativa.
Esiste una cospirazione mondiale degli abitanti del centro della Terra vuota per imbrogliare le cospirazioni cospirate dai buoni e vecchi poteri forti in modo che nessuno possa dire più se una cospirazione è una vera cospirazione o piuttosto una cospirazione di una cospirazione, e quindi la lobby dei film della cospirazione, di proprietà della gente della Terra vuota, abbia sempre abbastanza nuovo materiale per le sceneggiature e le trame in generale, così che Nicholas Cage, che probabilmente assomiglia esattamente al re del popolo della Terra vuota, possa girare un altro bruttissimo film.

10)

La verità del 10.
Dopo il 5 c'è in realtà il 10. La sequenza 6-7-8 e 9 è stata introdotta solo nel 1931 dalla NASA per rendere i conti alla rovescia più intensi così da drammatizzare le procedure di decollo e aumentare l'audience in TV per ottenere più soldi dagli spot pubblicitari.

THE ROADS THE RESEARCHERS & THE MAP (Pt 4/4)

Ohhh hello hellooo dear English speaking-thinking-reading-hearing listener, welcome back to me, @sciencemug, the blog-podcast-twitter&Instagram accounts-gofundme unsuccessful campaign holder-entity behind the unsuccessful e-shop that tells you science stories while longing for a sip of truce from all the chaos around and for just a smile from that particular girl, yeah, that one, you know what I mean. Aaaaand that does all of this in Eng?ish, a language that is to proper English what anti-Vaxxer are to something that even remotely makes sense and what a dodo was to a win at the evolution’s lottery. Aaaaand the reaches your ears thanks to the voice of a veeeeeeery dumb human that has been (the voice) kidnapped via a wireless-woo-doo trick.

Oooook, let’s start with a quick recap of the previous episodes.

There’s an international bunch of researchers headed by professor Nuria Selva Fernandez, presently working at the Institute of Nature Conservation Polish Academy of Sciences. The researchers publish a paper on Science where they tell us they created a map of the world’s roadless areas, that is the “terrestrial areas not dissected by roads […]” “that are at least 1 km away from all roads and, therefore, less influenced by road effects”(
P).
The scientists’ map shows that roadless areas with a 1-km buffer to the nearest road cover about 80% of Earth’s land (105 million square kilometers circa).
Moreover the good researchers create a unit-less index (called EVIRA, as in Ecological Value Index of Roadless Areas) that scores the ecological value of the above mentioned roadless areas. The index goes form 0 (0 being the slums of District 9) to 80 (80 being a very good spot of nature among human stuff).
About one third of the roadless areas have a low EVIRA score, but both low and high ecological valuable roadless areas are only by a tiny fraction inside protected lands.
This means, the researchers say, that “[g]lobal protection of ecologically valuable roadless areas is inadequate
(P) and that there “is an urgent need for a global strategy for the effective conservation, restoration, and monitoring of roadless areas and the ecosystems that they encompass(P).
And this is proven by two of the most important global initiative that exist at present to preserve biodiversity and promote a sustainable development: the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 (1), and the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2). Both this global initiatives fail to take into consideration the impact of roads on ecosystems and the need to safeguard roadless areas, in fact the reaching of many of their proposed goals somehow conflicts with the possibility to actually preserve the roadless areas.


If you want a quick example of how important is to protect raodless areas think of this: in the Amazon, unprotected areas near roads and rivers have four times more deforestation than protected areas (3).

So these are the results professor Selva Fernandez and her colleagues get from their massive research work.

But why do they even care to do such a work, meaning why do they pick roads and roadless areas as the topic of their research?
 
Weeell dear listener, the answer is: because roads effects on the environment are huge, and the value of roadless areas are huge as well.

 
Let’s start with a deep look of roads effects, ok? Oh and by the way, dear listener, make no mistake, any type of road causes some effect on the ecosystem, so not only the long, wide paved ones like highways, but also the short, narrow almost invisible unpaved ones, such as a path or less. (
P).
 

Ok, then, there are seven general direct and indirect effects roads have on ecosystems: “mortality from road construction, mortality from collision with vehicles,

THE ROADS THE RESEARCHERS & THE MAP (Pt 3/4)

Ohhh halloooo dear English speaking-thinking-reading-hearing listener, welcome back to me, @sciencemug, the blog-podcast-twitter&instagram account-gofundme useless campaign holder-entity behind the zero items selling e-shop that tells you science stories, try to build nanobots with oranges peels and a second hand smile bought in a cheap pawn shop somewhere north of Philadelphia, aaand that does this in En?ish, a language that is to real English what a middle age cucumber that wears a good quality blond wig while riding a mechanic seahorse in some poorly illuminated joint full of vinegar addicted and wasabi freaks is to something someone whose brain is NOT under the influence of a heavy cosmic vodka rays bombardment can normally see.
Aaand that speaks to you thanks to the voice kidnapped from a dumb human via a wireless-voodoo trick.


So quick recap of the last episodes/posts:
an international bunch of researchers headed by professor Nuria Selva Fernandez (who works at the Institute of Nature Conservation Polish Academy of Sciences) publishes a paper on Science and in the paper the scientists tell us they created a map of the world’s roadless areas, namely, according to the definition of the same professor Selva Fernandez team, “terrestrial areas not dissected by roads […]” “that are at least 1 km away from all roads and, therefore, less influenced by road effects”(P).
 

The map shows that roadless areas with a 1-km buffer to the nearest road cover about 80% of Earth’s land (105 million square kilometers circa).
 

Moreover the good researchers create a unit less index to score the ecological value of the above mentioned roadless areas. The index is called EVIRA, as in Ecological Value Index of Roadless Areas, and it's a unit less index that goes form 0 (0 being the slums of Gotham City) to 80 (80 being Eden before that fuss about the iPad, I mean the apple).

Sooo, that’s what it has been told in the last episodes/posts.

And now, let’s see how the story continues.

Our eco science dudes decide to find what is the amount of roadless areas that is located inside the protected areas of the world.
 

To do that professor Selva Fernandez’ team, aka the SF bunch, has to collect information about the protected areas existing all around the world. So the science gang once again dig wildly into data-sets, two to be precise.

The first data-set is that of

Ohhh halloooo dear English speaking-thinking-reading-hearing listener, welcome back to me, @sciencemug, the blog-podcast-twitter&instagram account-gofundme useless campaign holder-entity behind the quite unsuccessful e-shop that tells you science stories, tames particularly aggressive snails and is developing a method to unwrap the fifth dimension and finally set all those poor inter-dimensional lobsters free (why, don’t you hear ‘em screaming at night? No? Strange...). Aaand that does all of this in Eng?ish a language that is to real English what selfies are to something useful to civilization.
Aaand that reaches your ears thanks to the voice kidnapped via a voodoo-wireless trick to a dumb human being, oh jesus he’s so very dumb, poor thing…

Today, dear listener, you're going to be told the second part of the story of roads, roadless areas, and their ecological value!

The map shows that roadless areas with a 1-km buffer to the nearest road cover about 80% of Earth’s land (105 million square kilometers circa). These roadless areas, though, are hyper-dissected into 600,000 patches more than half of which is less than 1 square kilometer big (for more numbers and details check the previous episode/post).

Once done this, professor Selva Fernandez and companions - aka the SF bunch - use their beloved map to check where the roadless areas precisely are, and they find out that

So theres this paper, published on the peer-reviewed research journal Science about one year ago or so (mid December 2016), where a team of ten scientists from Germany, USA, Greece, Brazil, UK and Poland creates a map of the roadless areas existing in the world. According to their map, the scientists tell us that even if about 80% of Earth's lands are still roadless, this roadless chunk of Earth is though hyper-fragmented in roughly 600,000 pieces more than a half of which is smaller than one square kilometer (Ibisch et al, 2016 (P)) (and to have a reference, 1 square kilometer is 20 times smaller than the JFK airport of New York). Above all the paper tells us that
