Is Julian Assange Dr. Evil?

Fig 1. Secret Lair

Both his name (particularly his last name) and game seemed just like something a villain right out of the James Bond or Austin Powers films would be doing, but is Julian Assange truly as bad as a Blofeld or Drax?
Update: a kind reader alerted us to a further similarity with a Bond villain, Mr. Assange and Dr. No share the same first name: Julian

Fig 2. Blofeld, Assange, Dr. No

So he has the look, the lair, and the name, but what has he actually been up to?  It depends on who you ask, but to the Average Joe, it sounds like nothing but nefarious bidding: threatening banks with releasing information from executives' hard drives (causing said banks' stock to drop) and releasing hundreds (if not thousands) of sensitive pieces of information from governments and other institutions all over the world.  Assange pulls the old 5GB of data routine while Bank of America stops handling WikiLeaks payments and is he an anarchist on the level of Dr. Evil?  You be the judge.

Reason #18 Why I'm Sooper Smart

Well, I'm not sure why right now, but I can use Skynet (err, the future of Google) to search and find out why.

IN-N-OUT Special Menu & Dr. Saucebag

I flew into LA for a secret meeting with the US West Coast branch of Sooper Smart™ Enterprises Incorporated LLC today and had to stop at the "IN-N-OUT BURGER" hamburger restaurant food place which serves "fast food." I was recommended the establishment by the WC sales manager, and in fact was advised of several "secret menu" items which would be particularly tasty. The idea of an off an encrypted container enclosed menu was very exciting so I had to order these items:
  • Well done fries (darker and extra crispy)
  • Animal Burger
  • Grilled Cheese (tasted like something was missing)
  • Vanilla-Strawberry Swirl Milkshake
  • Flying Dutchman (a supreme disappointment)
  • Burger with whole grilled onions (made up for the previous mentioned disappointment despite all the onions sliding out on first bite)
When I pulled up to the window all of the white uniformed employees glared at me and I could here my server quietly sneer "So that was you..." Needless to say I felt like a major saucebag, especially when I then asked for an extra "secret sauce" Spread Packet (see picture above - to dip the well done fries into).

Snacktivity: Back To The Future

Many would say that October 26th is the key date in time travel history, however I propose that November 12th, is the date around which all important events occur.

 In honor of this important occasion, I recommend a snacktivity.  Following is a list of the food to enjoy while watching the first film in the Back to the Future Trilogy.

1. A Pepsi (choose the original formula with real sugar instead of Pepsi Free)

2. Peanut Brittle (or for the more adventurous, Peanut Brittle Ice Cream - see below)
3. Possibly something from Burger King, but not either of these above (source: Fast Food: Ads vs. Reality)

4. Frosted sheetcake
5. Cereal with milk
6. Coffee

NASCAR, A Gentleman's Sport

Jeff Burton and Jeff Gordon go at it.  But first Kyle Busch "hand signals" the NASCAR official in front of him who is doling out a penalty.

White Chocolate Ice Cream with Nerds Candy


I'm not sure how it is possible that I never enjoyed White Chocolate Ice Cream with Nerds . . . until now!  Wonka's Nerds Candy was my favorite candy one summer (when I was 9), but I stopped eating it for a couple decades because the nutritional quotient is low.  But if you put it on ice cream, well then it doesn't really matter, it's just good.

Time Traveler Caught on Film in 1928

This YouTube video shows a time traveler caught on film in 1928 at attendance of Charlie Chaplin's "The Circus" Hollywood premier.

Dr. Sooper Smart's explanation: It's a time traveler from 2019. Time travel was invented after the Chinese Supercomputer decided to make it possible in 2017.

The lady on film is obviously using a 2018 model Appldroid iTime G7 chrono phone (with 51G LTE Speeds) to "phone home" to 2019 via a self generated wormhole.

Reason #17 Why I'm Sooper Smart

Due to the wonders of evolution, I can take a photo of my great x 10,000,000,000th uncle, even today.

I threw in the large number just to make my claim sound impressive.

Mr. Rogers: Secret Agent

Ultra top secret documents recently declassified reveal Mr. Rogers (obviously a codename) was a spy.  The Evidence:

Exhibit A. Mr. Roger's wardrobe full of multiple disguises.

Exhibit B. He can change from a dapper businessman (dressed in blazer and dress shoes) to frumpy weekend yacht sailor (cardigan and boat shoes) in a mere seconds - - less time than it takes to sing the Cold War Era Classic "Won't You Be My Neighbor?".

Furthermore he had access to very high tech equipment (for the time):

A picture frame that secretly turns into a video analysis screen.  He simply inserted a canister of film into the wall and it would immediately play the footage -- usually inside surveillance from factories across the US.

Exhibit C. The miniaturized, motorized espionage device (T.R.O.L.L.E.Y.) was making daily trips through the DMZ into a forbidden territory called the "Neighborhood of Make-Believe" (clearly a codename for the U.S.S.R.).

"Tools of the trade" -- the aforementioned spy footage and gadgets delivered from the Q-like Mr. McFeely.  Mr. McFeely was obviously a double agent: he claimed to work for the US government but note the pathetic disguise consisting of tinted glasses, fake beard, and shoddily assembled replica uniform.

More evidence to be declassified soon.
