F-35, history’s most expensive weapon, still sucks. Gets its ass handed to it by an F-16 (1970’s era design) Not really. The idea is to outrun the enemy and kill from distance with the F-35. Still, getting taken out by a 40 year old design doesn’t make me warm and fuzzy about the whole TRILLION DOLLARS thing.


Oh, look. An actor has an opinion. Shut up John. Let me listen to voices that matter.

BBC played Obama for 15 seconds talking about Greece. I had to fast forward through it because I just cringe every time I hear his voice. Now I know how all those people felt who hated Bush (both of them).

Tomorrow, I’m going to put a hash mark on my wall board every time I have to type in my password. I might break it down at some point. I want to know if it is 100 or more in a full day.

It begins. Why not polygamy? Why can’t I marry my foot to make my hand jealous? It only took 5 days.

It appears some big data projects are finding that they can afford to collect data, but the expense of processing that data can be daunting. My company is heading down the road of analytics. They all hope to make something out of knowing everything about us. I just don’t think all that data and all that analysis and all that inferring and all that worrying about it are going to add up to the essence of making money. It seems a lot of people think this effort will lead to the holy grail sales and marketing. I just don’t see it myself.

Greece will bring down the EU if Germany doesn’t just out and out save them and keep saving them. Obama care is a mess, but will get much worse after some fixes. The world economy is imploding. The problem with the world economy is there is no one else’s money to spend. Once you have it all, that’s it. you find out that if you just print money at this point, it just slices the pie thinner.
There are live interviews with people on the street who cannot get money out of their ATM. Some people can’t get anything to eat because they don’t have any money. Some say they will have nowhere to sleep after the end of the month. It is bad news all round for the people.

If you own the words you own the thoughts. Destroy family and the government becomes your family. Destroy religion and the government becomes your religion.

New evidence in the Freddy Grey case. If only I knew what it was. If I were the cops, I would have hidden cameras in those suspect hauling vehicles. Wouldn’t that be some shit? What if the cops had clear video with audio of this guy deliberately banging his head against some metal wall or bolt or whatever. That would be a game changer.

Returning to Vietnam. Well, not really. It is a full blown brand new cluster police action we are getting in to.


F-35 just as good as an F-16. Wait a minute. ... Well, how much more maneuverable can you get before the pilot is just a puddle between the foot pedals?

Chemical weapons in Syria. This is going to be very bad. This time it will be the real deal. Full on chemical war. President Obama need to take a lesson on people who say one thing and do another.

I got hibernation working on my laptop. This may not seem like a big deal to people on Windows and iOS, but in Ubuntu Linux, it was a bit of a chore. I was googling and looking for a good way to make it happen when I found a wiki at my work that just had the answer. It works well. The reason we want hibernate and not just sleep is 2 fold. 1) Sleep eats your battery. 2) Hibernate requires logging in to disk encryption before you get back in to the computer. Hibernate is far more secure.

      • Why is the government even involved in marriage?
  • Sports
    • Something about baseball and baseball players. People getting hit by pitches.
  • Work
    • A customer trip one of the guys took where he successfully swore at a room full of customers.
    • Plans to not get asked back to customer sites foiled.

Expanding Universe

People talk about the universe expanding. They say the expansion is accelerating. The threshold of what we can see depends on the speed of light and the fact that as thing expand away from us faster than the speed of light, we can’t see them any more. Since the expansion is accelerating at some point it will appear as though the universe is collapsing in on us.

I don’t buy it. I have some ideas that have been rattling around in my head for half my life or so.

  • Light has a half life or something along that line that causes a deterioration as light travels in a straight line.
    • Gravity pulls light apart. The wavelength of light gets pulled longer and longer as light travels away from one source of gravity (the sun it came out of) to another source of gravity (our galaxy/solar system/planet)
    • As light travels through the space it simply vanishes in to the ether that makes up all that dark energy, or as i call it hole in the math, that everyone keeps blabbering about.
  • That, or reality has a half life. Time and matter do not exist until someone looks at it. As we look further and further in to the universe, whatever is generating reality has to generate more reality for us to look at. As we look further away, the resolution is lower. It works quite abit like a render engine of a computer game.

Notes

I cannot figure out if Google drive and Google Photos are both backing up my pictures and eating up space on both services. It is not that I care much. Not knowing is driving me nuts.

China military on the move. What does air independant mean exactly?

Looks like Greece ran out of other people’s money. No more money. I hear food deliveries are tapering off. No society is more than 9 meals from collapse. I’m popping some popcorn.

If you are so damn disgusted, bring charges. Whitehouse too frightened of Hillary Clinton to have her arrested for treason.

Last couple of weeks a collection of birds (black birds of some kind) have been dive bombing me in front of the Exxon station I have to pass to get to my bus stop. The days I’ve worn a full brim hat (cowboy hat  or this wide brim garden kind of hat) I haven’t had issues with them.

Finally some nanny state stuff I agree with. California makes vaccines mandatory. Well, they remove the religious exemption.


Autonomous kill bots banning. You know, if someone wants to do it they just might. regardless of a ban. It isn’t that I disagree with the idea of banning killer robots. It is that I believe it is a stupid idea.


Another web page to not go to because it has crazy cool hats. I’ve liked hats for a long time. I’m going to become a hat guy because my father has skin cancer. It is attacking his ears. he is just as red headed as I am so I’m going to start now. Guess it is not too late.

One more domino. Bit by bit these guys are gaining more ground than they lose. Same with hearts and minds. These poor civilians are caught in the middle. That is a hard place to be.

So, you have no clue what we should eat. I’m starting to think the whole idea of eating more fruits and vegetables and what ever else my body craves that isn’t junk is a good thing.

Unintended consequences are the most painful kind, and sometimes the funniest. Everything is the way it is for a reason, or a collection of reasons. Forcing an end result by simply hitting it in the head with a bat can cause other end results because the reasons are still there and need to be fulfilled.
That doesn’t make any sense. I apologize.

Fuck with one of us you get fucked by all of us. That is the message anyway. NATO building up their own special rapid response force. This sounds like a military responsible only to the leaders of NATO. Normally they have to deal with country leaders and citizens. Interesting. Is it going to be filled with nationless contractors?

Russia upgrades nuclear arsenal. West sleeps. Well, west bitches a lot then makes the decision to ignore it and worry about the EU experiment. Brand new ICBMs.


10% of the U. S. has everything important handed to the Chinese. That is 1 in 10. I would not have thought that many people had handed in forms to our government for security. I forget how much information our government demands from its citizens. Why the fuck are we paying people at the NSA? The fucking Chinese should be footing the bill.

I'm just not holding my breath. Obama has a hardon for any deal he can get. The Iranians keep saying no and he keeps coming back to the table. If it were me, I’d blow the shit out of the most obvious nuclear facility, then wait 1 hour for the phone call. Then go for the second most obvious site.
