    @alf

    the focal point of the eclipse is about seventy miles

    Is that your way of saying the path of the total eclipse is about 70 miles wide, and it extends from coast to coast?

    Lots of lucky Americans will be living on that path. Of course, a lot more won’t be.

    You can use this interactive map from NASA to zoom in on the path and find…[Read more]

    Clickbait.

    That’s what I thought seeing the headline, and especially the photo. She has an expression that suggests maybe she’s going to offer me the opportunity to buy some of the aforementioned soiled undergarments, after the Rabbi’s done with them I suppose.

    And by the comment count, the clickbait worked.

    But I see I’m mistaken, and have…[Read more]

    It has nothing to do directly with defending our country except to make it worth defending.

    Conversely, then, the current administration and it’s tweeter in chief are working daily towards making it NOT worth defending. Just what the Russian regime might have wanted, if they had the choice. Oh, but they did, didn’t they?

    Thanks for bringing me down to earth.

    Given that low in Jupiter’s atmosphere the temperature and pressure are too high, that should mean there’s a Golilocks Zone of pleasant temperature/pressure above. And the huge diameter of Jupiter means that there is a potential habitable volume of what? (Yes, I know, area of Jupiter’s surface times 10 or 20 km. equals what? a lot of room…[Read more]

    Or while the women go to church their menfolk have to at least put in a 2000 foot walk to get to the nearest prostitute and back?

  • OHooligan posted a new activity comment 8 months, 1 week ago

    “prostitution within 1000 feet of a church”.

    A specific crime? Must be because it would otherwise be a Prime Location to set up a prostitution business. Churchgoers are clearly more likely to be customers than the general populace?

    Or is it to give the priests/preachers some incentive to remove themselves to a discrete distance before ind…[Read more]

    @FiddyCent #7

    if the rust belt don’t want to pay for other people’s health insurance, they shouldn’t have to

    I think you miss the point of having some kind of health service that isn’t simply user-pays.

    What if the rust belt workers lose their jobs because their employers are uncompetitive, can’t make enough money, or make more by movin…[Read more]

    RE voting:

    Does anyone have figures on the voting pattern of the area that includes Flint, Michigan?

    I googled “tensorial memory”…

    I thought that a more polite response then the more concise “WTF?”.

    Incidentally there was no overlap between the first page or so of that google search and anything with the words “intelligent design”. I did not fall into a pit of psudo-science. I found instead some computer science stuff, that would be…[Read more]

    I googled “tensorial memory” and found a lot of deeply technical information about mathematical computation theory and practice. Thank you Guy for drawing this to my attention, though I’m not so sure about the connection with life and consciousness, apart, of course for the need for the consciousnesses interested in these computations to…[Read more]

    Hold on:

    IBM’s quantum computer will now offer simulation of 20 qubits, up from its original five.

    Simulation.

    Also

    Qubits are, by their nature, massively unstable and maintaining even one is tricky.

    So they’re not actually saying they’ve got one, or made one, or whatever one does with Qubits, only that they are simulating some.…[Read more]

    This shadowy puppeteering is far more scary to me than any episodes of the ongoing reality-tv-show starring the puppet.

    Well this particular scheme is absolutely a disaster (unless you’re one of the ones laughing all the way to the bank):

    The issue was “99% likely to be fine,” Elon Musk, founder of the private space company, tweeted Saturday, “but that 1% chance isn’t worth rolling the dice. Better to wait a day.”

    Unlike the NASA management who went ahead with the final launch of Challenger.

    History is written by the victors. Or at least, edited and published by them. So don’t expect some kind of Objective Truth. Evidence to the contrary of the victor’s narrative is going to be hard to find, it’s bound to have been deliberately obliterated. Extreme examples of this are the destruction of anything that doesn’t suit the current…[Read more]

    @Dan #6

    …contradicts what I always thought was a law of the human mind: all matter is infinitely divisible….

    Nor can I conceive of pure energy as matter

    Haha, Dan, welcome to the weird and wacky world of 20th century physics.

    It would be ludicrous if it wasn’t accurate. Accurate enough for 20th century inventions for good and evil,…[Read more]

    Wow. I never knew it said that. Who’d have thunk it.

    Needs to be carved in stone and set alongside any religious displays on goverment/state/public property.
