Hey buddy that’s not the right artist okay. That would be crookedtrees.

They’re the same person, brá

HAHA No.

Let me illustrate why they are not the same person.

These are all examples of magnifryer’s artwork:

Okay?

Then we have the artist cassetterecorder, colloquially known as crookedtrees.

Here are examples of his artwork:

NOW FUCKING LOOK AT THIS ARTWORK. COMPARE IT. FUCKING COMPARE IT. 

GOOD.

SO DON’T SIT THERE AND TRY TO SAY OTHERWISE, BECAUSE YOU’RE WRONG.

I KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT.

I RUN A FUCKING DEDICATION BLOG FOR THE LATER ARTIST. I’VE FOLLOWED ALL OF HIS ARTWORK FERVENTLY FOR THE LAST EIGHT YEARS. 

I GET SO SICK OF SEEING YOU FUCKING IDIOTS GOING AROUND, BLATANTLY CONFUSING THE TWO. IT’S SICKENING.

YOU HAD BETTER GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER, AND LEARN THE FUCKING DIFFERENCE, MORON.

PREACH!

Here is some other work of equally  art who can get confused for these two artist jcharlesmachiavelli

Lets not forget the other artist for several other references to not get other artist confused

Photos like this are being spread across the internet lately, and they are dangerous for a few reasons. If you’re too lazy to read below; basically ignorant Americans are blaming other people, governments, and religions for problems their own nation caused.First, here is a history lesson on Afghanistan. From 1933 until 1973, Afghanistan was ruled under a man named Mohammed Zahir Shah. While he was a devout Muslim, he had a Western education in France. His reign marked four decades of peace and stability. With the introduction of a constitution Afghanistan progressively developed into a modern democratic state with free elections and a parliament, as well as a massive push for women’s rights, universal suffrage, education, worker’s rights, and civil rights. So yes, Afghanistan was doing well in the 60’s as this photo suggests. However, the photo doesn’t give you context for what went wrong.During this period in time the Soviet Union had a strong influence in Afghanistan. They supported modernization and education in the Afghan state. The United States, not wanting to risk their hegemony in the region, clearly had a major problem with this. They were terrified of the spread of Communism and quickly developed a plan. Afghanistan would become the Cold War’s chessboard. In the late 80’s, the Saudis, Pakistanis, and the Americans brought in radical Islamists from around the world. They armed, trained, and directed them into a militant force, and they were called the mujahideen. They became the US’ main offense against the Soviets. It wasn’t to defend the Afghans against the Soviets who were ready to pull out, but to deliver as much harm against them imaginable. Carter wanted Afghanistan to be the Soviet’s “Vietnam”. And it was. When they finally retreated Afghanistan spun into chaos and a civil war ensued under the militant mujahideen warriors. Within this framework we saw the rise of the Taliban and Al Qaeda, and of course Osama bin Laden. All under the auspices of the United States security forces and American tax-payer monies. Clinton’s bombing of Sudan and Afghanistan was directly responsible for their rise. Oh, and then in what was most likely the greatest immoral injustice of the 21st century the United States invaded Afghanistan in 2001 only further driving the besieged nation further into turmoil.What does this mean? The mujahideen, the Taliban, and Al Qaeda do not represent thousands of years of Afghan culture and Islam. They are a direct reaction to Western imperialism. The root cause for the disparity between the two pictures is foreign intervention. Not Islam, and certainly not Arabs.
Second, here is a history on Iran. Before 1953, Iran was ruled under a democratically elected man called Mohammad Mosaddegh. Under his reign Iran saw a progressive movement of social and political reforms. During this time Britain tried to establish an oil company (British Petroleum) on Iranian soil, and promised to share profit and technology with the Iranian government. However the British, as usual, didn’t honor their agreement. They, and the United States, began to steal Iran’s oil. Prime Minister Mosaddegh would not stand for this and demanded the seizure of the oil fields and the ouster of the British. In response, the British and the United States overthrew him in a coup and installed the Shah who was a brutal tyrant and ruled the nation under an absolute monarchy. The women in this picture did live well, but that was because they were members of a very small minority and in the Shah’s social circle. Everyone else in Iran lived under harsh conditions. The economy was failing, education was abysmal, and the entire nation was rural and very religious.Today, Iran’s health care is better. They have more political freedom. Education is improving, and the country is slowly globalizing. The economy is slightly better off, however that is quickly changing with the Western world’s sanctions against Iran in midst of their nuclear propaganda campaign at the behest of Israel. 
What does this mean? Essentially, the Islamic Revolution had little to do with the rise of an Islamic state; rather the resistance of Western imperialism. Almost every social and political group was united in resisting the Shah, from the communists to the secularists to the Islamists. They demanded Iranian sovereignty and political freedoms. Is the current regime in Iran perfect? Absolutely not, and I’m passionately against it. But this picture is extremely distortive of the truth.Unfortunately, we have gone full circle. Today, the United States is supporting terrorist cells in Iran in an attempt to oust the current Iranian regime. They want to establish another pro-Western government like the Shah and “try again” where they failed. They have been doing this for decades and it hasn’t been working well. That is why we are now seeing media hysteria against Iran, and their false quest to achieve nuclear power and bomb Israel. Iran is a peaceful nation, and always has been. They have never attacked another nation, and have absolutely no intention of attacking Israel or anyone else for that matter. The United States’ war against Iran is rooted solely to seek revenge for their failed foreign policy in the 70’s and to once again take control of their natural resources.In conclusion, if you think you can understand decades of history in the Middle East, or anywhere for that matter, by looking at a photograph you are a fucking idiot who has no right to engage in intellectual discussion or give your opinion on anything other than what you watched on TLC last night.

The best way to be the “Leader of the Free World” is to lead by example.  What example have we been setting?  To meddle in other people’s lives?  To use economic, political, and military pressure against those we disagree with?  To denounce acts of espionage and terrorism while committing the same misdeeds behind the public’s back?  To be what, the “Bullies of the Free World”?
You can catch more flies with honey than vinegar.
We have so much potential.  We give so much in humanitarian aid.  We try so hard to mediate conflict, instead of merely intervening.  We can lead the world in innovation again, if only we invested in the future instead of the present.  I don’t know if the USA was ever as great as some think it was, but I know we can be that great in the future if we try.

I feel like saying the Soviets had a ‘strong influence’ doesn’t exactly do justice to what it was.
During the 80s the Soviets invaded Afghanistan and started bombing the fuck out of the people there. They wrecked that nation’s shit because they wanted a greater presence in the region and it caused a massive problem for Pakistan because that’s where all these suddenly displaced people fled to.
American political and intelligence agents brokered a deal whereby Saudis would match American funds to purchase Israeli-stockpiled Russian weapons that would be handed over to the Pakistan so they could arm and train the Mujahideen with some CIA support as a /direct/ response to Soviet brutality in Afghanistan.
They didn’t do it just to take the piss out of the Soviets, they did it because the Soviets were committing human rights abuses with total impunity and there was nothing else that could be done save for giving some starry-eyed idealists Stinger missiles to shoot down some helicopters and jets (which they did to spectacular results).
If Americans hadn’t intervened the Soviets wouldn’t have had to pull out and their occupation would have gone on as long (if not longer) than ours had.
With the Iran thing yeah that’s all sorts of fucked up, no real justification.

A wireless low-power, high-quality EEG headset
Imec, Holst Centre and Panasonic have developed a new prototype of a wireless EEG (electroencephalogram, or brain waves) headset designed to be a reliable, high-quality and wearable EEG monitoring system.
The system combines ease-of-use with ultra-low power electronics. Continuous impedance monitoring and the use of active electrodes increases the quality of EEG signal recording compared to former versions of the system.
How it works
The EEG data is transmitted to a receiver located up to 10 meters away. The headset integrates active electrodes (reduce the susceptibility of the system to power-line interference and cable motion artifacts to improve signal quality), EEG amplifier, microcontroller, and low-power wireless transmitter.
The receiver can continuously record 8-channel EEG signals while concurrently recording electrode-tissue contact impedance (ETI), a measure of contact quality.
The system has a high  (>92 dB) common-mode rejection ratio (to reduce interference from power lines and other sources) and low noise (<6 µVpp, 0.5-100Hz), with configurable cut-off frequency (to filter out high or low frequencies).
The heart of the system is the low-power (750µW) 8-channel EEG monitoring chipset. Each EEG channel consists of two active electrodes and a low-power analog signal processor. The EEG channels are designed to extract high-quality EEG signals under a large amount of common-mode interference. The active electrode chips have buffer functionality with high input impedance (1.4GΩ at 10Hz), enabling recordings from dry electrodes, and low output impedance reducing the power-line interference without using shielded wires
The system is integrated into imec’s EEG headset with dry electrodes, which enables EEG recordings with minimal set-up time. The small size of the electronics system, measuring only 35mm x 30mm x 5mm (excluding battery), allows easy integration in any other product.
