Looks like Fridays will be my slow day
So far.. It looks like Fridays are the day that I'm going to have the most trouble posting... Gotta earn a living and go out and forage (shop)... For some strange reason... The wife and kids always want to eat and stuff.  So... Before I have to post a rant about negligent husbands and fathers.... I expect that Fridays will continue to be light post days... But I'm reserving time to cruise the net and post heavily on Saturdays!

Remember Yesterday's Post Regarding Chickens Roosting? 3:50 pm pst | link

Could Crazy Technology Save the Planet?

How Crazy?

There's the man-made "volcano" that shoots gigatons of sulfur high into the air. The space "sun shade" made of trillions of little reflectors between Earth and sun, slightly lowering the planet's temperature. The forest of ugly artificial "trees" that suck carbon dioxide out of the air. And the "Geritol solution" in which iron dust is dumped into the ocean.

Are the Market Chickens Coming Home to Roost?
Yesterday's stock market took a dive on the seemingly terrifying news that all...(OK.. a lot) of those subprime mortgages are now in danger of defecating all over the lives of  the poor investor class.  Well... What did you expect people?  Billions and Billions of dollars worth of  "innovative" mortgages...Aggressively sold... To people that had marginal at best ability to pay the interest...let alone the principle. Was there ever any doubt that Balloon Payments... Massive payment increases... and all of the other ways cooked up to fleece the ignorant and eager... Would be cause for consternation at some point in the not too distant future?
The question is:  How does all of that empty housing get disposed of if a large percentage of the folks that used to live in that housing are in even less of a position to buy housing?  Will the next round be even more "creative" because it's born of desperation?  Is this the beginning of a vicious cycle?

The candirú is a tiny catfish which dwells in the depths of the Amazon River. These fish do not hunt in packs like the piranha, nor are they exceptionally large like the anaconda. In fact, the candirú is among the tiniest vertebrates on the planet, and it is sometimes referred to as the "toothpick fish" due to its small size and slender shape. Only a handful of people have had the misfortune of crossing paths with the candirú, but their experiences serve as cautionary tales to any who venture into the mighty river.

How does it work ?
This is a great illusion ! Look at the black dot in the middle and move your  head forward and backward. You will see both circles rotating in different directions !  If you move further away, the circles will become smaller for you. This means, from your point of view, every symbol moves inwards, and their slanted edge give the impression of circumferential motion.
Look closely... it's impossible to believe these are two perfectly concentric circles. Wherever you look, there always seems to be something wrong.

An Open Letter to Bill Gates

Mr. William H. Gates III

Microsoft Corporation

Redmond, WA, USA


My Dear Mr. Gates;


In light of recent actions and statements on your part… It is my considered opinion that your grasp on reality has been adversely affected by the simple fact that you sir … Have too much money.  At your level of wealth… You have absolutely no concept of  the effects that your decisions … nay … your very whims can have on the vast majority of your fellow humans.  You seem to have lost sight of the fact that less than 1000 of the 6,500,000,000 people on this planet have even the same designation as you.  And of that 1000… Only 3… That is THREE… can even look at the world from your perspective. (Continued)
