Missive From ‘Merica: Wipeout

If you’ve noticed lack of missiveness here at the LoL recently, and have been craving some good old Text US Okie Devil meandering ponderings, then today, Dear Reader, is your lucky day…

spaced tires lucky people

Enjoy! ❤

*******

Wouldn’t it be great to have a book that contains everything you need to know about life, but not need this particular book?

Wouldn’t it be great to have a book that contains the answer to every question you might ever have, but not need this particular book?

Was just pondering the concept of “social ills”, and it occurred to me that being respecters of privacy is a biggie. We are given a choice whether or not to respect someone else’s privacy, and the choice(s) we make in this regard could be considered “seeds of discord” or “seeds of harmony”.

^Arcade Fire – Sprawl II (Soulwax Remix)^

“Pondering the concept of social ills” is something that I personally would consider as “sowing seeds of discord” because I’m gonna have to stick my nose in society’s business in order to figure out what is wrong. I’m then going to have to tell someone what I think is wrong. I may do so before reflecting and evaluating how I personally contribute to this “ill” in my own life, and that almost assures a twisted tree will grow from this seed of my being nosy.

Sow the seeds of (something)

An idiom, eh? Do I use those a lot in my writing?

‘with perverted heart devises evil, continually sowing discord’

Proverbs 6:14 (ESV)

All of Proverbs 6 kinda talks about how to not be a respecter of others’ privacy, and what you should do in the event you do stick your schnoz somewhere it does not belong. But where all of this started was by actually contemplating Rome and wondering why it is always made out to be this hideous place full of blood-thirsty debauchees. I look at the architecture(s) and infrastructure(s) and wonder…welp, if all the Romans were doing was partying and fucking, how in the hell did all that shit get built? How in the hell did they get anything at all done? Is it because Rome “collapsed” that it is looked upon as a shithole that died because it was a twisted and perverted society that choked on its own vomit? Or maybe even choked on someone else’s vomit? And yeah, that can apparently happen, and there’s no way of knowing who’s vomit it is.

Maybe the Romans contracted out all the construction work, and the Romans themselves kicked back and partied during the construction period.

/me shrugs
^Klaxons – Gravity’s Rainbow (Soulwax Remix)^

I started this thing back on August 19th. Today is September 4th. What in the fuck have I been doing for the past 2+ weeks?

The short answer is “not much”

Is output indicative of effort? Lemme splain a bit. Ya see, when I started this here missive, I was coming off of a Jordan Peterson bender, had a lot of thoughts on the things discussed, somehow wound up in the book of Proverbs…and that’s where it all went wrong. Ya see, if you identify as a female, Proverbs is likely not the book for you. There is all kinds of good stuff in Proverbs, but you’re gonna have to get through a lot of references to whores, loose women, and weaponized female genitalia in order to get to that good stuff. I’ve nothing against women nor your delicate pretties, but basically, I tripped myself up a bit by starting to dig in Proverbs because of some…lets just say, “bad personal experiences of my own” with respect to this particular book in the Bible. A lot of bad memories came flooding back, so I stopped.

^Club Des Belugas – The Beat Is Rhythm^

Ya know the one commonality that all political parties seem to share?

They want it all

Kinda ironic that the one trait all parties/groups seem to share is that they want to share nothing. I guess that’s why it’s really no surprise to me that so many lefties have a strange liking for President Trump. He’s somewhat of an outsider with respect to Republicans, therefore, he’s someone that can be leveraged. He’s a political paper towel.

 Single use and disposable

A something operating under the banner of the opposition that can be used to cripple that opposition. Wait…cripple? Why would you ever want to cripple someone or some thing? Prolly shouldn’t have to look far to answer that question.

Digress
^Emmanuelle – Italove – DEEWE015^

So yeah, your political party or group or whatever, wants everything you want, everything your way, and you want anyone who opposes you, or is different from you, to have nothing.

But we’re talking about government(s), so were’ talking about commerce, and not much else. Does it make sense to eliminate your opposition? A battery requires both positive and negative charges in order to function properly, and those neutral thingies get ignored completely, even tho I’m pretty sure they are required as well. So for me and my journey, I’m right fucking back to thinking about that automatonic group where the individual is nullified. Wait…isn’t that the same principle that the Nipponic interests once took? Allegiance to the Emperor, only the Emperor, and you have to die in order to prove that allegiance.

Hrm...
^The Chemical Brothers – The Test (Official Music Video)^

Rambled a bit there, and you can’t see inside my head, but all I could think about in that previous bit was “a necessity for tertiary allegiance”. Like, for the self. For the self to be ebullient, vibrant, and full of vitality and verve, you gotta have options. Attack, defend, stand your ground. Wait… is it possible that a Neutron, Electron or Proton behaves differently in a Democrat than in a Republican? Like, can particles…themselves…mutate?

DUH! Of course they can

I think I may be thinking about this all wrong. I’ve gotten entirely too “Yin/Yang” in my thinking about Electrons and Protons, which means my thinking about Neutrons is all wrong as well. How did I miss that? The Neutrons in my models have at least two modes of “neutral”, so why wouldn’t Protons and Electrons, and even other particles, also be modal? Attack, defend, stand your ground/ignore entirely.

Colors? Colors are potentially indicative of modes of modals? I’ve also got to consider speed(s), distance(s) and vectors. Something blue from one angle could appear blue-green from another. Puts a whole new spin on ranging and approaches/departures, especially at certain velocities. Not to mention that even the unaries are going to be mutative.

Interesting

Estimating specific subatomic approaches. Jesus, have we really gotten that smart? Or did we just stumble across it thanks to our brute-force methodologies.

/shrug
^LCD Soundsytem – You Wanted A Hit (Soulwax remix) High Quality^

Calculating the probability/probabilities of deviation based on the approach/departure and/or proximity of influence could be a bear. Gives whole new meaning to the concept of “back away slowly”. I’m thinking primarily about entanglement(s) there. Especially when considering the “deceptive” practices employed by things like viruses. Something models that behavior/ability, and to think that it could not be employed by inorganic or less-organic matter is prolly going to be a mistake. I mean fuck, Pyrite exists…right?

Can you imagine homing in on a signal that you thought was Helium-3, only to discover that the source was actually Lead? What you are using that Helium-3 for, and when you discover your mistake could weigh heavily on any outcome.

(no pun intended) 

Gotta take “lensing” types of distortions into consideration as well. At speed, one could easily wind up in position you don’t want to be in, and fast.

^Kutiman – Mix Tel Aviv^

I’m thinking so hard that my tits are jiggling.

Weird...I have no tits
^Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble – Couldn’t Stand the Weather (Video)^

OK, you’re likely wondering what I’m on about here, and I’m thinking about the identification and tracking of atoms, at distance(s), and at speed(s). I’m also thinking about the ranging types of information that need to be taken into consideration in “the void(s) of space”. If you are on the moon, and trying to collect Helium-3 atom by atom so as to reduce the “bycatch” types of chaff in the harvest, you’re prolly going to have to think in ways that are less on the human scale. Or at least, be more scalar in your thinking between the human and Helium-3 atom scales.

Also, if you are blazing through the Universe in a spaceship at C * 71, you’re going to need to be able to quickly and accurately identify matter off your nose in the direction(s) of travel. You’re also going to want to be able to quickly and accurately identify matter that is on intercepting or overtaking trajectories. Not to mention, that the further you travel at those speeds, the more likely you are to start trailing some stuff. We’re not talking about an aircraft traveling in a somewhat stable atmosphere, we’re talking about a spaceship traveling in more or less a vacuum, and this “space” and these “spaces” are likely to have both stable and unstable properties, as we negotiate and traverse membranes and pockets of all kinds.

That’s what I’m thinking about here, but I’m trying to keep my thinking both here and there at the same time.

By the way…

C * 71 = 21,285,264,518 m/s

Yep, that’s 21+ billion

with a “B”

…meters per second.

That equates to 47,613,780,686.29 miles per hour.

Or, 13,226,050.19 miles per second…

if you prefer

At that speed, you could travel from Earth to Mars in 18.82 seconds. And that’s when Earth and Mars are in opposition and both planets are at aphelion.

^Another World^

Not thinking just an only in terms of interstellar travel. Thinking about all kinds of applications. Being able to identify and track a single atom or even smaller particles within the “chaos” of non-controlled and/or less-controlled environments? Woah Nelly! That’d be something. I keep wondering tho…

Q: Am I going to bump into “the soul” at some point?

A: ¿?¿

The spirit? Would I have a fucking clue what I was looking at? Would I care?

^Depeche Mode – Get The Balance Right [Firestorm Remix]^

Would I be me if I didn’t stumble?

Gotta wonder about the nature of change, who is receptive to it, and when.

I might turn into some prick that no one likes.

Can't have that
^Propellerheads — Take California^

A little over 3,000 people die in car accidents every day. The city that I live in has 142,816 people according to the 2018 census. If 3,000 people died in this city every day, it would take a little over 47 days for them all to die. Now, my thinking here is distribution of wealth…

so to speak

As long as these numbers are onesie-twosie types of deaths that are spread out over large areas, we tend to just shake our heads and shrug. But if your entire neighborhood and a huge chunk of the area in which you live disappeared in the span of a day, maybe that’s why “mass shootings”, “disease outbreaks”, “disasters” and similar are (apparently) such shocking concepts?

Vaping death and outbreak of severe lung disease linked to marijuana oil in e-cigarettes: What we know

US measles cases hit 1,234 as Brooklyn outbreak called over

I’m gonna digress, because that’s not really where I was going.

‘Nearly 1.25 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3,287 deaths a day. An additional 20-50 million are injured or disabled. More than half of all road traffic deaths occur among young adults ages 15-44.’

– Source: Google, 06 September 2019

OK, so, at 3,287 deaths per day, you could wipe out my city in 43 days instead of the aforementioned 47+ days. That aggregate adds up, and we just shaved almost a week off a bunch of people’s lives…

let's keep going

Texas Cities by Population

#522 on that list is Winnsboro, they have exactly 3,287 residents living there, and that’s exactly the average killed per day in “road crashes” according to Google and I guess W.H.O. Sorry Winnsboro, but we’re gonna have to temporarily change your name to Loseboro since you drew the short stick in the galactic lotto.

There are 1,435 entries on that list, and 914 of those entries are at 3,287 residents or less. There are 1,711 cities in total and some of those are combined with other cities on the list, so it’s prolly safe to say that there are at least 1,000 cities on that list that could be easily wiped out in the span of a day if all “road crashes” were to occur in just one place.

 Where am I going with this? 

I dunno. Just wondering aloud a bit as to the justification(s) of statistical data. Will you personally tolerate 3,287 people dying per day of West Nile Virus, Cholera or some other disease? More than that, would you tolerate these numbers if they were happening in your own neck of the woods?

It’s no longer September 4th…it’s now Thursday 12 September. This is the longest it’s ever taken me to write one of these things for Roob.

I'm not sure how to feel about that

Spent some time getting my own blog in order this week, but I’ve still got 5 drafts sitting there staring me in the face. One requires that I rewatch the Brexit Movie, so I can’t finish that fucker until I rewatch the damn thing. Another is one that I’ve been chewing on for well over 2 years. Not sure what this has to do with this whatever that I am currently writing, other than this thing here really doesn’t feel too “missivey”. I’ve gotten too goddamn wordy. I thought about doing a a Random Wikipedia Attack, and I really want to do one, but I’m not gonna. Not here anyway. I do have another “missive” to write today tho. I need to get #137 to Roob before I go to bed tonight.

What's say we get to it!

Hello again. I just sent part duce over to Roob, it’s currently 02:16 in the AM where I am, and I gotta admit that upon reading Part I of this mess, I noticed a few things in my writing. Roob’s formatting was it’s usual joy to see, and her own additions we really cool, but in a few places, it was just damn obvious where I drifted and/or just completely abandoned a particular thought.

Now, this is normally not uncommon for me to do. Leaving blanks for you to fill in on your own is just something I try to do in my writing. Not really difficult since most of my writing is pretty blank to begin with. But there was a thought or two in that first missive that I just flat out didn’t address that I should have.

that bothers me

I’ve done that a coupla times now in the past week or so, and since I’m trying to learn how to write and write well, let’s deal with the mess. We can then get back to measles and voice-to-skull type and project bluebeam and other wacky goodnesses graciousnesses.

^Maskmada – Temazo (Remastered 2019)^

You’re gonna have to watch this one without me. On my first watching attempt, I didn’t even make it to 20 seconds. Just tried to give it another go, made it to 1 minute 2 seconds. Sorry, but I tire easily where the solution to being punched, is always “punch back”.

^Heads UP! Why Mandatory Vaccines are Being Forced on US All Now^

Have you ever traveled abroad? I think Americans sometimes forget that their own country is founded upon the idea of states rights. The state in which you live, is king. Changes within the government have made “federal funds” king, and states have surrendered many of these rights to get their hands on that federal money….all in the interests of the state that gets the money of course.

what does any of that have to do with traveling abroad? 

Welp, I grew up in a time where crossing the state border was actually a pretty big thing. Leaving the country? A pipe dream. All that said, there are always certain considerations with traveling. Like say…oh, I dunno…you’re a Texan who lives Frisco, and you decide to travel to Oak Cliff. Or maybe you live in Balch Springs and want to travel to University Park. Either way, and depending on who you are, might wanna question yourself as to what business you have traveling to these areas. It’s likely the residents don’t cotton to strangers comin’ round in them there parts.

Yep, all kinds of local community standards and regulations being kicked to hell by some left-coast loonies selling their dangerous swill to an unsuspecting and uneducated population.

They may even go so far as to attempt to make what is applicable for themselves, applicable to others. Might even have all kinds of avenues available to them to get what they want. How very neighborly of you…neighbor.

^Project Blue Beam in Action. MUST SEE THIS !!!^

You want your CGI/VFX real as fuck in video games, TV shows and movies right? You want more and more realistic and lifelike effects to blow your mind on-screen. Sounds to me like you DO want to be bamboozled. Not to mention that you want better and more and more powerful tools for making your own content for YouTube and Instagram and other social mediot outlets right? Better software, better computers, better devices, better and faster connections…better, betterer, bettererester…more, morer, morererer…

RAWR!!!! 

I think all that comes with some price tags attached. Not to mention that others? They want stuff too.

There’s only one me, I only have access to so much information, I’m only so smart so there’s only so much information that I can process, I only have so much time, and I have to make my own determinations as how best to spend that time as I go. Sometimes I lead, sometimes I follow, but most the time I’m more of a companion…a guide. I can point you here and there, I can maybe even travel with you some of the way, but I can’t be you. I don’t wanna be you. I like being me. I like you being you. But that’s just me.

They planned, they plotted, they schemed, all to get a meal in your pie-hole. Now, waddle yourself back over to that chair complete strangers conspired to make for you, and sit back down at that desk of doom so you can stare at your device from hell and continue reading my nonsense.

Take for example that video at the start of this whatever that talks about “the measly measles”. Someone I know? Those “measly measles” almost took their sight. But I’ve no room to talk really. I’ve used the term “social mediot” at least twice in this writing, so I’m guilty of name-calling as well. Devaluation. De-emphasization. Dehumanization. Lack of understanding. Lack of compassion.

When you woke up this fine Mother’s Day morning, did you have any idea that you would come to know that there was a dude somewhere in the world who took the time to make a beer-bottle opener out of 5,000 drops of beer? Me either. But now we both know that there is some crazy kook out there wasting time with frivolous and worthless pursuits, instead of educating themselves as to the very real horrors that are transpiring in the world.

But to be fair, I guess we all have our place in the world. Some of us might even get to choose what those things are. And if you think that guy making beer drops bottle openers was weird, check THIS shit out.

^TARGETED INDIVIDUALS: Jesus is offering you a JOB!^

I gotta admit that there’s a bit of irony in two of these items that were passed along to me. On the one hand you’ve got people who are trying to eliminate religious experiences, and on the other hand you’ve got people trying to create it.

When thinking about the FUNVAX, I kinda touched on the fact that you need ways to block it/prevent it or whatever, and you’d also need to identify how to turn it off that which you turned on. So it is possible that a meshing of these two concepts of elimination on the one hand, and encouraging on the other, could actually be an attempt to modify “the religious experience” completely? Meaning, make your own special blend of religious experience that caters specifically to your needs. And I’m talking about the tinkers who are messing with this stuff.

Schadenfreude

Schadenfroid

Roob brought those two concepts up in conversation last night. Basically, garnering pleasure from seeing others suffer, OR perhaps some naughty pleasures about your own station being a shade better than it would be were you elsewhere. So along these lines of creating experiences, maybe the people creating these things get their rocks off by seeing people lost and/or confused. They achieve this by creating uncommon and perhaps even unwanted experiences in someone else’s life.

shouldn't be that much of a stretch to imagine

From practical jokes to ritual killings, people seem to get their jollies via all kinds of weird and distorted means. Not to mention the fact, that different drugs have different effects. Some drugs have erratic effects.

How many people do you know? I’ll wait while you think.

Now, how many of those people that you know, do you get actually along well with? I’ll again wait while you think.

How many people did you used to get along with, that you no longer get along with?

See where I'm going with this?

It’s likely, that you are a selfish fuck who only likes/gets along with people that serve your needs. Every single person on this planet was put here to serve you and your needs.

^Sisko Electrofanatik & T78 – Bon (Original Mix)^

OK…so…perhaps that was a bit strong. Just wondering if you ever wonder why people don’t like you. Why you have no friends. Why you can’t meet people or have trouble meeting people. Why you can’t keep friends. But I wasn’t wondering just and only that. Was thinking about how we meet, how we develop relationships, what pretenses we have for developing those relationships, and who gets to decide where these relationships go. My guess is, you play a 50% role in 100% of the success or failure of a relationship. That’s just a guess.

Drop those inhibitions, and bark, out loud, right now. Bark, laugh, stand on one leg, then repeat that whole process for the next hour. Yeah, this is just me, but a complete stranger barging into your space and demanding that you perform specific tasks on command is an odd concept to ponder. I guess spirit has no rights. Better not die. Paybacks are prolly a bitch in the afterlife.

^Young the Giant: My Body [OFFICIAL VIDEO]^

Speaking of spirit…

Wonder (Emotion)

I miss wonder. Well, I think I don’t miss wonder as much as I wonder why I’m told to qualify any emotions that I have which lean towards awe, amazement or even just plain old excitement of being astonished. For example, according to my YouTube feed, Space-X has launched about 30 rockets this past week. Well, maybe not 30, but every damn day there is a live feed of some new Space-X launch. Should I feel bad about staring in amazement at what this group has accomplished just because there are those that think Elon Musk is some freaky futurist who is hell-bent on some kind of world domination? Why are you looking for tyrants? Doesn’t your being hell-bent on looking for tyrants, exposing tyrants for what they are, and eventually eliminating tyrants, make you yourself…a tyrant?

^Stromae – Alors On Danse (Clip Officiel)^

Things like this really gets me to wondering…

These “paranormal events” always seem to happen randomly with no provocation, then the investigators show up, and demand a repeat. Fair enough. It’s part of the scientific method after all.

Demonstrable AND repeatable = proof

But you know the problem with being a magician? You can know every trick in the book, but you are still just a one-trick pony. Anyone you encounter, who discovers that you are a magician? Can you guess what their first query is going to be? Yep…

”Do a trick” 

The next query will be…

”Do another one!”
^Kendall Schmidt and Logan Henderson – Next Step^

Most “paranormal investigators I’ve seen do this. After the first trick is performed, you ask for another…then another, and it goes on and on like that. After you conclude one “investigation”, you start another. Lots of purported haunted sites after all.

Q: Do you only investigate sites that you are invited to?

A: Doesn't that make you a vampire?

Of sorts.

^The Ting Tings – Shut Up and Let Me Go^

Wait…just…one…fucking…minute, and hold the fucking phone. I think I get it now. If you correctly/accurately locate and properly identify the Antichrist, that must mean that Jesus is right around the corner…right? Is that’s why these fucks label anyone and everyone as the Antichrist? Eventually, they’ll get it right, Jesus will show up shortly after, and you’re home free. That said, I wonder what Jesus is going to have to say about your shitty batting average(s)?

Q: Why is the Antichrist called “the” Antichrist?

A: It's not like Jesus is “The Jesus”.

HEY! I learned a new “sync” definition recently. It’s when advertisers leech off of fine art in a particular ad in order to play on your subconscious whether you realize it or not. Or when scenes in certain movies emulate scenes depicted in some painting for the same reason(s) as advertisers. Sure, I’ve seen loads of stuff like this before, but I’d never before associated this and these types of recognition as…”syncs” or, “synchs” as I prefer to call them. Association(s) via distant, vague and/or wispy/foggy recognition methods. Like overlaying a not so clear something, with a very clear something that somewhat resembles the original.

We’re kinda used to similarities and deviations in language, but no so much with visual-only types of aspects. I mean, if you see a film that has a scene which reenacts a depiction of a famous painting, do you realize what you are seeing at the time? Do you know the painting? If so, do you like it? Do you hate it? More than that, if you are unfamiliar with the painting, and see it after you see this movie, does how you felt about the movie affect how you feel now about the painting?

For those of you into this kind of thing, did you know that Christopher Walken’s character in the movie Joe Dirt was called “Gert B. Frobe”? Did you know that “Gert Fröbe” is a real person? I did, but I never made that connection before. Not before now anyway. Watched the movie Goldfinger the other night, and it struck me that the actor playing Goldfinger also played Sgt. Coffee Pot in the movie The Longest Day, and I’ve seen them in a bunch of other movies, so I looked them up. There is was… Gert Fröbe. At long last, that small bit from the movie Joe Dirt made sense.

We didn’t know each other, we met, we knew something of each other, and now…here we are.

Q: How’d we get here?

A: ???

Where are we? Who’s driving this fucker? Maybe when relationships become relationsips, we drown ourselves in not much of anything. Of course the flipside is, we learn things about people as we go, and there’s likely to be all kinds of shit lurking in that past that you’d rather was not there. Get rid of them, move on, problem solved. How’d all that old shit get dug up anyway. What is this, some kind of initiation process?

^Showtek – The F Track^

Your home is prolly loaded with all kinds of stuff and gadgets and all manner of things that are pleasing to you personally. But how can anyone compete with the likes of that? Should I have to compete with stuff like that? Are you looking to streamline? Wanting a mate so you can get rid of that automatic dishwasher? Fire your hired domestic servant and/or cleaning service? Am I rambling?

Yeah, I am

^Lunachicks – Heart Of Glass^

Let’s say that there are 8 billion humans on a certain planet, and you are lucky enough to have three close friends. That means that you are close friends with 0.000000000000375% of the humans on the planet. Well done. Now, let’s see how connected you really are to this planet and/or the life on it.

Humans share the planet with as many as 8.7 million different forms of life, according to what is being billed as the most accurate estimate yet of life on Earth.

Aug 23, 2011 – Source: Google – 27 April 2019

So…there are 8.7 million different forms of life on Earth/Terra, and you are friends with 0.000000000000375% of only 1 form of life. Tell me, how do you personally feel about other forms of life? Best buddies with roaches? Wasps? Ants? Sharks? Stray dogs? Armadillos? Flies? Treponema pallidum?

Yeah, I didn't think so

Your home is a pest-free zone, and you aim to keep that way. Damn…if you don’t mind me saying, you are one completely disconnected and totally fucked up individual. No wonder you are single.

^Headhunterz – Rock Civilization^

I wonder how wobbly things like pyramids would look if you could view them over very long spans of time. They’d likely not only be wobbly, but also bouncy and spinny. Maybe that’s why the outer coverings of the Pyramids of Giza have come off, and maybe the key to these pyramids rigidity and eventual longevity is actually because they are quite…

flexible

Like, over time and times, they roll with the punches, and accommodations were made for these flexions in the original construction. Hell, maybe that’s why the outer covering was added. Viewed through the right eyes over the right spans in time, there’s a lot you could learn about the planetary dynamics that affect certain structures or even certain areas where these structures are built. If one were so inclined anyway.

^Mr. Probz – Waves (Robin Schulz Remix Radio Edit)^

Was watching a documentary with a certain someone, and the subject of transubstantiation came up. I guess at the Council Of Trent, there were questions as to whether Jesus turned from God or spirit or whatever, into a human. The Catholics appear to have had a desire to know, and the Protestants just wanted to chalk it up to “mystery”, and move on.

Speaking of revenue(s), I’ve been thinking about starting a Patreon account or whatever it is. Just keep doing what I do, cept start a Patreon account to where people could donate a dollar here and there if they wanted. I mean, for a guy like me, even if I only made $10/$20 a month? That’s $10/$20 more than I make now. God knows my searches for a more or less normal job have been unfruitful. Why no one wants to hire a broken and gimpy old dude is beyond me.

Learning how to express one’s thoughts is difficult. How to express yourself, when it is proper to express yourself, why you are expressing yourself. It’s a difficult proposition. Maybe that’s why “the gods”, if they exist, seem so erratic. So flighty and irregular. But that’s how relationships go I guess. Periodic interactions, many of which seem to have little to no meaning at the time of occurrence. But to be fair, you don’t want to smother those that you care about…

right?

If you know the answer(s), then why are you asking me? The only thing that I can come up with, is that you aren’t looking for answers, as much as you are seeking data to shore up your own beliefs in the answers you already possess. Tests. You are testing your position.

*I did wonder, Clicky…*

Welp, for the most part, that’s exactly what happens. Yes, I sometimes post music that I have selected for some reason. Usually because a song pops into my head as I’m writing about a certain something. But most of the time?

Yep...completely random

Same with the images. Strange way to write, eh? Welp, I personally am not trying to wrestle the elements and elementals to the ground in order to get them to do my bidding. I don’t want to be led around by the nose, but sometimes, that’s prolly exactly what happens. As to when I am in control of my own life, and when I am not? No idea. You seem to be a better judge at that than I. And yes…I specifically selected this song below, because it’s been bouncing around in my head for several weeks now, and thanks to the Joe Dirt Wikipedia article I noticed that it appears on the movie’s soundtrack. Enjoy.

And to answer what I perceive to be a roundabout question, and to answer that roundabout question in a roundabout way, yes, I was aware that the drummer from Blink 182 was in a plane crash, was badly burned/was pretty lucky to have survived. Everyone else died.

😦

Well, one dude died later, but yeah, everyone on that plane died all the way to full-on dead.

Got a parting query…

Q: If you are afraid of death, doesn’t that mean that you are also afraid of life?

A: !!!?!!!

Gotta be alive to be able to fear death, and if you fear death, that means you likely fear life.

If you’re dead, you no longer need fear death, and you can’t fear death even if you wanted to, because you’re dead.

Who would encourage you to fear death.

I’m guessing, that anyone needing a cuddle, might encourage you along the lines of fearing this or that.

Not suggesting that you abandon reason, nor that you ignore wisdom.

How was your Easter? Everything go eggsactly according to plan?

I'm such a ham sometimes

That reminds me…do you think that maybe the time we go without a certain something is proportionate to the total amount of time we have? Like, if we do without sex for an entire week, we both get a week added to our lives. I dunno how we’d ever know that we actually got a week added tho. As far as I know, the only thing certain would be that we went for an entire week without getting freaky. I wonder if we were lonely.

^Route 94 – My Love ft. Jess Glynne (Official Music Video)^

Saw something recently that put forth the notion that loneliness was directly related to the amount of time that we have. Yeah…the amount of time we have to live. You get lonely, you die. Of course, the same people said that loneliness was just as deadly as smoking, so I gotta doubt the conclusions they are arriving at. Smoking? Smoking what exactly? Smoking a ham? Smoking crack-cocaine? Smoking the tires on a race car? Smoking synthetic poisonous toads? Could you fucks be a little more specific as to what type of smoking it is that is that you are suggesting is so deadly. And while you’re at it, stop pairing-up and compounding future tragedies. You’re making me all paranoid by making me wonder if you’re on some insurance company’s payroll.

Was watching a video yesterday, and there was some less-than-obvious types of evidence in the video indicative that one of the individuals might have recently been participating with opiates. This “evidence” was reflective of kinda an on/off relationship type of thing with opiates, but participating nonetheless. Got me to thinking about not only belonging, but also about inclusion in conflicts.

List If Ongoing Armed Conflicts

Over the past few weeks, been a lot of noise here and there about opiates. I’m guessing maybe some of the numbers are down, and “they” are needing some renewed interest. I’ve pretty much ignored the topic til this morning when I opened my web browser and saw this on Google’s main page…

“We can all help prevent opioid abuse. Dispose of old & unneeded medications safely.”

They were kind enough to provide a link too.

Does 23 mean anything? Jim Carey sure seemed to think so. Do any numbers mean anything? Or is my subconscious mind grinding on me in the background as my conscious mind tries to make sense of it all during my lucid periods, and I’m too stupid/incompetent to understand what is going on.

I fucking love One Direction

Is there some mystical force at work here trying to direct my purchasing power towards One Direction’s box set instead of Ariana Grande’s new CD? Think of it like this…how in the FUCK did I start off writing about “belonging”, only to wind up here?

You think it possible that expansion/contraction could play a role in plate tectonics/continental drift? As far as I know, science provides for celestial bodies accumulating mass, but doesn’t really say much about how the same body would lose mass. I guess that’s why they don’t spend too much time thinking about changes in dimensions, except in the case(s) of a change or changes in mass.

That makes me question distance(s). Would the moon/Luna appear to be getting closer if it increased it’s own diameter? How would we even know if our moon’s diameter increased/decreased? Is that one poor lonely bastard at NASA still bouncing lasers off of mirrors on the surface of the moon every day to gauge distance(s)? If so, how accurate are those readings?

So yeah, I’m thinking about expansion/contraction of a planetary body, and how that might result in the movement of a continent.

^Zedd – Beautiful Now (Official Music Video) ft. Jon Bellion^

I realize we’ve quite the array of satellites and scientific stations here and there doing all kinds of measuring, and all kinds of people are analyzing that data whilst looking for this and that. But what are they finding? Are they gonna share that information? They work for the public, so they are going to do what is best for the public good, which means the majority…

right? 

You think the majority of people who are doing something incorrectly, want to know if they are doing something incorrectly?

Natural Gas Measurements: Volume, Heating Value and Gas Richness

Is it possible for a continent to expand/shrink, without really going anywhere? Subduction and uplift seem to be the kings of creation according to science, but what about expansions and contractions with no real change in mass? Science still operates on the assumption that water does not/cannot contract. But what if it can, and does, but all of your equations are based upon a set of theoretical dynamics which state that water cannot compress? Fuck it.

Antlion

An ant or some other creature wanders by, they fall into the pit these Antlions construct, and the more the wayward creature struggles and tries to escape, the more the pit collapses in on itself…keeps the hapless fucker trapped.

Not only that, but what does it say about the current structures of the modern workday(s)? Do the modern modalities and stipulations with respect to employment leave any room for the employee?

Ever heard of something called HTA? In 1971, Esso had “three new fuels” with something called HTA in them. I guess some kind of additive to reduce engine hesitation via fuel performance.

Q: Is it possible to find out what products a company had available at a specific time, and if so, what those products contained and why?

A: ? ¿

I’d like to know what kinds of materials a pair of socks contained back in the 1970’s, but it would appear my quest is akin to finding a needle in a stack of needle-stacks.

Digress

Esso

Nope…no mention of “HTA” there. Let’s go straight to the source.

Esso

Hrm…it would seem that for North America, Esso only has retail locations in Canada now, so I’d imagine that any 1970’s products and their components would likely not be mentioned. But, let’s give it a whirl anyway.

Esso Canada

Nope. Went to the search function, searched for “HTA” (without quotes), and “no results found” was my reward. I know! Let’s us try this!

Exxon

FUCK! No mention of HTA there either. OK, so, let’s go the corporate route.

ExxonMobil

“Your search returned no results for HTA”

/me scratches head

OK…so…let’s just go to Google, and see if we can search for “what is HTA in gasoline”, and see what we can find via that.

On my last gasps here, it appears that The EPA has a list of all registered gasoline additives.

List Of Registered Gasoline Additives

I guess “registered” is the key word. No “HTA” on that list either. But, there’s hope I guess…

Uneasy Rider: The Interstate Way Of Knowledge

To be honest, my Google searching has so fucking many HTA’s, and these HTA’s mean so goddamn many things, no telling what in the fuck HTA was…or is…or will be…

Dennis Klein’s Gas Engine Water Additive

But what’s this? Can it be? Have I finally hit…paydirt?

Encyclopedia of Chemical Processing and Design: Volume 2 – Additive to Alpha

Seems that some someone somewhere invented some something called “HTA”, and this some something is

“a mixture of nonpolymeric amines”

which are

“said to minimize wetting by gasoline of the intake system metal oxide layer.”

And so, we’ve possibly got our “HTA stuff” figured out, and what this HTA stuff does, but this is where shit really gets interesting, because the author goes on to possibly tell how it does it.

“Rather, small droplets are formed which tend better to be entrained in the air stream, thus reducing maldistribution due to a high inertia liquid film.”

OK, so, “polymer” is mentioned in a “nonpolymeric” context, and what immediately popped into my head was stringy, springy stretchy things, and “bubbles”. “Misting” of fuel(s) is usually required in order to get a particular fuel to burn the way you want it to. But gasoline is already quite unstable, so it’s usually a case of keeping it from burning until you want it to. Are they trying to keep the gasoline from creating bubbles/droplets and create “sheets” instead? There’s mention of film, and more than that, a high inertia liquid film. I wonder what that could mean?

Film – a thin skin or membrane

Here’s the thing, earlier today, there was some more nonsense about “junk food” and it causing cancerous advertising or some such nonsense, and it really got me to thinking about my own relationships with sustenance. I don’t think some people realize what kind of razor blade I sometimes have to ride with respect to eating. Or maybe, they do, and they just want me to buy their junk food instead of someone else’s. Or maybe they couldn’t care less about me and my needs. That said, it has occurred to me from time to time that there are those that are well aware of some of the cancer dynamics, but ain’t saying nothing.

Like maybe, that there is a structural societal cancer build on top of disease that is so embedded, that removal of the disease is likely to be fatal to these systems that our societies function in and upon. Google is telling me that there are 18 million healthcare workers in the US alone, and there’s no real qualification as to what that means. Is someone who manufactures the sheets that go on the beds of an MRI machine considered “a healthcare worker”? Irrespective, I doubt very seriously that 60+ million healthcare workers worldwide are ready to be out of work. What does junk food and shaving have to do with Newtonian physics and HTA gasoline additives from the 1970’s?

I dunno yet. Working on it tho

Today is now Monday the 17th of September 2018, and as soon as I woke this morning, I started thinking about how to create an atom of Gold (Au) using only three particles – one Proton, one Neutron, and one Electron.

So what I immediately starting thinking about was speed, which got me to thinking about light traveling as both wave and particle, I got to thinking about Neutrinos/Tachyons, The Particle Zoo, double-slit, gold-leaf, then started bouncing around through time a little bit to see if I could make 79 protons, 79 electrons and 118 neutrons and single atom using only 1 electron/proton/neutron.

I could.

I started thinking about the classic depictions of atoms, some of the newer models including some of the tinkering done with computing and text and the like, then added t(pfp)* to think about where and when a particle would need to be in order to appear to be in anywhere from 79 to 118 places at the same time, PLUS, all of the places that particle DIDN’T need to be in order to be where it needed to be.

In order to do THAT, I had to think about what creates mass in the first place, and I initially came up with (s*s) = m. Using the (Tachyon¹+Neutrino²(1))³ model, where two instances of the same particle are simultaneously moving at opposite/opposing speeds in the same place at the same time AND/OR at different places at different times, I got to thinking about The Big Bang, and how it may not have been the “explosion” that we think it was.

*t(pfp) = time¹ * ((past + future + present) = times) = time.

t¹ * t ³ = Tⁿ or (T∞)

  All times are infinite.

All angles are infinite.

  All speeds are infinite.

All distances are infinite, including the infinitely finite.

Observer, context, time = ∞ = -1 + 0 + 1 = ∞

Just making some mental notes 🙂
^George Benson: Give Me the Night (Official Video Remastered) HQ^

Anyway, I got to thinking about the dynamics that make it possible for matter to have mass, which got me to thinking about the dynamics that make it possible for matter to have no mass, and I wound up at a point that was ridiculously small, which was creating something ridiculously large, and I was bouncing back and forth in the space between. That got me to thinking about…energy.

Energy in the form of sound and light.

This is heavy.

Overview – Heavy periods – NHS – UK

So what’s all this business about heavy blood and/or gravity, mass and motion affecting menstrual cycles? Welp, it’s been over two weeks since I wrote on this piece of shit, so let’s do some numbers, and let’s assume that there are 2,000,000,000 women on the planet who are capable of menstruation.

80ml x 2,000,000,000 = 160,000,000,000ml

160,000,000,000ml = 160,000,000 liters

160,000,000 liters = 42,267,528.3773 US Gallons

Now, it’s only been two weeks, so let’s us cut those numbers in half.

(no pun intended)

80,000,000 liters = 21,133,764.18865 US Gallons

21+ million gallons/80 million liters of blood has flowed from the no-no areas of women worldwide since I started pondering some thoughts about menstruation two weeks ago. I wonder what someone would be willing to pay for a source that produced those kinds of numbers every two weeks?

Am I grandstanding? Bullshit numbers to reinforce bullshit concepts? Or am I tossing around rough figures in order to better understand scope. I mean really, who sits around calculating the amount of menstrual blood being shed. In fact, who sits around and calculates any type(s) of blood being shed, irrespective of why/how?

Catch my drift?

I just calculated digit by digit, and there are 473.176473 milliliters in a pint.

Don't believe me?

Go to Google, search for “473.176473” without the quotes, then look at the first result. Some numbers are contextually unique.

Fine-Structure Constant

I forget, therefore I…I…I…um, I am sometimes forgetful.

I think, therefore I am capable of incapability.

I think I am anyway.

Maybe you are a better judge of that kind of thing.

^Penguin Cafe Orchestra – Perpetuum Mobile^

Let’s bring it home.

How much does human blood weigh?

1.04 grams per cc.

80,000,000 liters = 80,000,000,000 cc’s

80,000,000,000 cc’s x 1.04 grams = 83,200,000,000 grams

83,200,000,000 grams = 83,200,000kg

83,200,000kg = 183,424,602.14 pounds

Can you imagine what a tick that weighed 183,424,602.14 pounds would look like? Or a leech? A parasite that large would need a host like Godzilla to feed off of. You’d need a fucking herd of Godzillas. King Kong would be nothing more than a snack. Sorry, just brainstorming for context.
