This was better than expected: Ecstasy of Order: The Tetris Masters

This was decent. Nothing new really and quite long: We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks

Both can be found on piratebay.

Videocracy, could have been better but still very watchable.

That documentary is more or less a hoax. Scopolamine does not work anywhere near as described there. Not even close.

The Figs Protocol.

Indeed - it struck me that everyone who had been dosed had clearly been slipped something in a drink. Usually while in a brothel.

Somehow it sounds pretty ominous.
Have you been testing during job interviews?

Google confirms it's an urban legend, BTW.

I had a grad school roomie who told me crazy stories about burundanga in Columbia a long time before Vice came out. Might be an urban legend, but considering my pal makes his living convincing narcos to grow cucumbers instead of opium or marching powder, and he hasn't died yet, I kind of trust him on such matters.

That space doc is spacy. I like e weird poetic intro with Stonehenge metaphors and the eerie soundtrack.

Good stuff; I think the same BBC people who did "World at War" made this one. It's all up on youtoob.

not exactly documentary, more comedy sketch mixed with a sound understanding of Evolution.

Parrots, the Universe and all that.

I have been enjoying the Ken Burns - prohibition series. It is taking a while to get through but always enjoy them when I have some free time.

Keeping the nuclear theme, and in line with current events; the world almost ending in Able Archer '83 (plus, decent 80s tracks):
