666 - (The mark of the science illiterate president)


When do scientists come forward and clearly inform people (such as the president) that the H1N1 death rate is similar to the normal seasonal flu? If anything, the panic caused by this will place a burden on healthcare resources. At least the sale of vaccines in huge amounts, at a profit, will help stimulate the economy...

Americans are very good at worrying about things that are small and simple, but very bad at worrying about big things that are confusing. Pollution vs. mad cow, nuclear war vs. gay marriage, or obesity vs. H1N1.

Obama declares H1N1 state of emergency! Stock up on water and batteries while you can! Buy Xmass gifts early this year, you may not live to see December!

(*I just noticed that as soon as I made this post, all of the adds to the left changed over to cover "black america" and "medicine half price!"*)

665 - J. Evans Prichard - "Understanding Poetry"
"To fully understand poetry, we must first be fluent with its meter, rhyme and figures of speech, then ask two questions: 1) How artfully has the objective of the poem been rendered and 2) How important is that objective? Question 1 rates the poem's perfection; question 2 rates its importance. And once these questions have been answered, determining the poem's greatness becomes a relatively simple matter.

If the poem's score for perfection is plotted on the horizontal of a graph and its importance is plotted on the vertical, then calculating the total area of the poem yields the measure of its greatness.

A sonnet by Byron might score high on the vertical but only average on the horizontal. A Shakespearean sonnet, on the other hand, would score high both horizontally and vertically, yielding a massive total area, thereby revealing the poem to be truly great. As you proceed through the poetry in this book, practice this rating method. As your ability to evaluate poems in this matter grows, so will, so will your enjoyment and understanding of poetry."

I would guess they put hydrogen in there? Methane can also be used for lift.

Thisman.org

This is probably a hoax, perhaps even started by this web page. Either way, what a great idea!

655 - One of the worlds tallest structures




"The KVLY-TV mast (formerly the KTHI-TV mast) is a 2,063 ft (629 m) tall television-transmitting mast in Blanchard, Traill County, North Dakota, United States, used by Fargo station KVLY channel 11. It's considered the third tallest structure ever built, after Burj Dubai (incomplete as of 2009) and the Warsaw radio mast (which collapsed in 1991)."

KVLY - TV Mast

Also see the KXJB-TV mast, only shorter by a few feet:

652 - Boy in Balloon (?)








From the looks of it, the balloon was way too small to lift a child. A zero pressure helium lift cell the size of a car, could probably only lift 10 or 20 pounds at the most.

Monday, October 12, 2009


As soon as these images came back, NASA should have begun FUNDING (not just thinking about) a Europa orbiter. Then working on a lander. Period.

643 - LCROSS hits the moon - no visible plume though

This is a totally unrelated moon image with data, but it looks cool.


The target crater.





Footage of the launch.


Footage of the moon from a large Earth telescope, nothing visible at this time.


This video explains the mission in simple terms.

Black men pretending to be white women: Funny



White men pretending to be black: Racist?


Walking on egg shells, treating black people as if they are untouchable, as if they can never be criticized and never be wrong, is actually hurting them. It is actually a form of racism.

The problem here isnt that the skit was really that racist, the problem is the skit was painfully dumb and childish. Like most humor from around the world. Most British humor is so silly I find it painful to watch. That Monty Python is considered the pinnacle, and is yet really really silly, speaks volumes. Good thing for shows like The Office and better still, Extras, because they are just flawless smart humor.

To have Harry Coniq Jr. speak for all Americans, in some kind of painful, drunken, broken English is the worst part of this video. What was he even trying to say there?

"I dont want to take this show to a lower new level. I it is just that americans have spent so much time trying to build black people up and not make them look bad that when we see the blackface we go to a lower valence level and we remember the war of northern aggression." It looked mostly like southern guilt to me.
