One Small Step for Thursday's ONT

“Houston, Tranquility Base here, the Eagle has landed”


On July 20th, 1969, the lunar module Eagle touched down on the moon, and mankind took their first steps off planet Earth. This is, in fact, my earliest memory. I was 2 ½ at the time, and I remember my mother sitting me down in front of the big old RCA console TV to watch grainy footage of Neil Armstrong descending the ladder. A half a billion other humans watched with me as the world held its collective breath.


"That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind."



We come in peace, for all mankind

Indeed.

M O O N, That Spells Moon

Here's a recap of that day from NASA

When it comes time to set Eagle down in the Sea of Tranquility, Armstrong improvises, manually piloting the ship past an area littered with boulders. During the final seconds of descent, Eagle's computer is sounding alarms.

It turns out to be a simple case of the computer trying to do too many things at once, but as Aldrin will later point out, "unfortunately it came up when we did not want to be trying to solve these particular problems."

When the lunar module lands at 4:18 p.m EDT, only 30 seconds of fuel remain. Armstrong radios "Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed." Mission control erupts in celebration as the tension breaks, and a controller tells the crew "You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue, we're breathing again." (› Play Audio)

Armstrong will later confirm that landing was his biggest concern, saying "the unknowns were rampant," and "there were just a thousand things to worry about."

The flag they left is bleached white now, but, with apologies to General John J. Pershing, time will not dim the glory of their deeds. Because of these men, and all of the people standing behind them on the ground, my youthful eyes looked to the stars and saw not the unreachable firmament that had tantalized earlier generations, but a universe of possibility.

Unconscionable


If Apollo 11 gave us dreams of the sky, down here on Earth we still have to deal with all of the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. This story incensed me. IQ costs Oregon parents their kids, but is that fair?

Seems the state has taken their kids away from this couple on the grounds that they are too stupid to raise kids. Note that there is no indication that they are incapable of caring for them, no accusation of harm to the children, nothing except the overreaching and crushing power of the state. This is why our Forefathers were determined that we would be citizens, not subjects. The state exists at our pleasure, to serve us. Bad things are going to happen if it keeps insisting that we exist to serve it. Very bad things.


Poetry

Do you like Kipling? I dunno, I've never kippled, but for some reason, the last story brings this poem to mind.

The Beginnings
by Rudyard Kipling


It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late
With long arrears to make good,
When the English began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy-willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the English began to hate.

Their voices were even and low,
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show,
When the English began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd,
It was not taught by the State.
No man spoke it aloud,
When the English began to hate.

It was not suddenly bred,
It will not swiftly abate,
Through the chill years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the English began to hate.

Not sure why that came to mind. No idea, really. It's a mystery.

ETA Special thanks to Moron pst314, who pointed out that I had originally posted this poem wrong. Not just wrong, but disastrously wrong. I remembered the poem, but when I Googled it up to get the full thing, I somehow got to a Stormfront-type site that had adjusted the words to fit their racist agenda, and I wasn't on the ball enough to realize this before I posted it. Apologies to the Horde and especially to Rudyard Kipling.

Musical Interlude

In honor of the opening story:


Round Up the Usual Suspects


Novelty Store Heist Suspect Remains At Large

Seems a tattooed man grabbed a couple of plastic dicks and ran off. He was last seen, according to the manager, “running north toward the grocery store with the two biggest dongs I sell.” Let's hope that when this miscreant is caught, he faces a stiff sentence. One hesitates to imagine the depths he intends to plumb with his ill-gotten merchandise, but we can be sure that they will cause some friction in his household. Even though his defense will undoubtedly be that he was just screwing around, police should be careful that justice doesn't get shafted and that he does hard time.


Wit

The Apollo astronauts read from Genesis when they did.

48 "The Wrath of the Awakened Saxon"

Somebody has been altering Kipling's poem to make it suit their current political purposes.

Here is the original, written during WWI and directed at the Germans:

http://www.kiplingsociety.co.uk/poems_beginnings.htm

The Beginnings
1914-1918

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late
With long arrears to make good,
When the English began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy-willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the English began to hate.

Their voices were even and low,
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show,
When the English began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd,
It was not taught by the State.
No man spoke it aloud,
When the English began to hate.

It was not suddenly bred,
It will not swiftly abate,
Through the chill years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the English began to hate.

It's also lying on its side in the dust. Buzz Aldrin caught a quick look out the window on departure, saying goodbye forever to Tranquillity Base, and realized they had planted it too close to the LM. The ascent engine exhaust blew it over, and they weren't going back to put it upright again.

The later flights moved the flag to a more circumspect radius from the touchdown point, where it would remain vertical.

83 Credit where credit is due, George Silver aka "Tinkr" to Air Warrior online players was one of the MIT computer team's hardware experts. Present that day as part of the huge number of contactor support groups stationed at NASA mission control available to troubleshoot it was George who not only knew what the precise code was for the alarm Armstrong was hearing, he knew exactly what caused it and that it posed no threat to the landing.

The problem? The LM return radar switch was open and the computer was trying to solve an algorithm outside of the expected parameters causing the memory to overflow capacity and force a reset alarm. The landing radar was unaffected so NASA gave the GO for landing.

Silver had seen this in hardware testing, so soon after the alarm he and MIT had an answer for MC.

106 There is quite a bit of Nasa archival footage put together on YouTube, that can be watched at your leisure. Some of these have been edited by civilian space nuts into some pretty interesting documentaries.

The odds of Apollo 8 were considered about 50/50 making it back, iirc. This wasn't stated publicly. I agree Lovell and the rest of the crew - Borman, Anders, were some real pioneers. Apollo 10 went so far as to undock and make a dry run. Nasa purposefully didn't install enough fuel to make a landing, there was at least a possibility they would just go ahead and land for the hell of it, this prevented them from doing so, just in case. I think it was 15 that had a pretty hard landing. If they rolled it upon landing, they were screwed. Stuck on the Moon. Can you imagine? The ascent engines contained hypergolic fuel - two chemicals mixed together. So corrosive, the engines couldn't ever be tested, except on the Moon. So they had to work, or they were stuck. Grumman made the lunar module, in Haupagge, New York.

There was a bit of oddity. One of the missions reported hearing music - both the command module pilot and lunar module pilots - on the dark side of the Moon. No, it wasn't Pink Floyd. They all commented on it, thought it was REALLY weird, and figured nobody would believe them. It's in the transcripts. No recording of the "music" has been forthcoming.

All thise guys were real heroes, and some really smart guys on the ground made it possible too. "SCE to AUX". Bet that guy never needed to buy a beer ever again.

If I'm remembering correctly, all of the engines in the LM and SM were hypergolics exclusively.

There's a little anecdote in the book _Chariots for Apollo_ about a new engineer going to the propulsion development department. A grizzled old chemist set up a glass Mason jar with these two propellants ready to mix, and placed it carefully on an old piece of WWII surplus armor plate. Then retired to a safe distance and let 'er rip.

Then gave the new guy the armor plate, with a circle the size of the Mason jar punched through it, as neatly as an office hole punch going through a sheet of 8.5x11 paper.

I also recall the feeling of optomism that oervaded our culture. Younger people have been robbed of this by leftist agitators in academia and popular culture. There was a feeling that Americans could "git er done" and this was reflected in a confidence in our institutions and corporations, that new technologies could help solve our problems and make our lives easier.

It's likely that exposure to unfiltered UV rays from the Sun would have bleached out the dyes in the flag. But the flag would be intact.

Consider a flag flown for 40-50 years on Earth. There would be nothing left but tattered strips of cloth. They would still have some color though.

Both flags would suffer from continuous exposure to the elements. They're just different elements.

188 Love that Kipling poem. Think I had to memorize his poem The Ballad Of East And West in high school.

So I don't know much about his life and start reading parts of his biography on Wikipedia -- and I come across this:

["The [recently married] couple [26-year-old Kipling and 29-year old Carrie Balestier] settled upon a honeymoon that would take them first to the United States (including a stop at the Balestier family estate near Brattleboro, Vermont) ..."

Huh. I'd never heard of Battleboro, VT until Mary The Sock's comments here -- thought it might be a fictional place.

207 The Russkies were the first to send pictures back from the far side of the moon. They had a string of impressive firsts for a little while. The pictures weren't very good by the standards of today, but they did show that the far side is quite different than the side we normally see. Because of the way the Moon and Earth rotate, until a probe was sent to photograph the other side (it's not really dark) no human had ever seen it! That side of the Moon is never presented to us.

What was interesting to me about the Russian probe - it used American film, that they had recovered from US spy satellites. The film was developed inside the probe, and then scanned, with the images radio'd back to Earth, sort of like a FAX.

In those days even Democrats were still amenable to facts, logic, and Reason, and a few minutes of explanation about hundreds of thousands of jobs and careers, and even more thousands of feeder industry jobs and suppliers and the technological advancement would counter the brainwashing they had been subject to.

They all commented on it, thought it was REALLY weird, and figured nobody would believe them. It's in the transcripts. No recording of the "music" has been forthcoming.

This is not that, but I've heard that during the first moon landing, the BBC had Pink Floyd live in the studio to accompany the NASA video feed for the viewers.

337 It's likely that exposure to unfiltered UV rays from the Sun would have bleached out the dyes in the flag. But the flag would be intact.

Consider a flag flown for 40-50 years on Earth. There would be nothing left but tattered strips of cloth. They would still have some color though.

Both flags would suffer from continuous exposure to the elements. They're just different elements.

Posted by: rickl at July 20, 2017 10:34 PM (sdi6R)

Unfiltered UV can break down many plastics, so if the flag contained synthetic fiber, it may have crumbled. But with no wind to disturb it, it might remain whole until touched. But if the vendor had been contracted to supply a UV-resistant flag, it may still be in good shape. Going to take a return visit to know, I guess.

340 So, here's the deal with my work situation:

I do bookkeeping for my work. Nothing too extensive, other than making sure money is in the account and bills are paid. I have other duties as well, not related to the bookkeeping side of it, but for this part of it, that's what I do.

So, yesterday, my supervisor came to me, and said the boss was wanting her to take a more proactive role in evaluating overhead and spending trends in order to decide on adding personnel, raises, price increases, etc. So, she was wanting me to sit down with her and show her some of the basics. In the meantime, she was going to meet with our outside accountant. Okay fine.

Anyway, today outside accountant calls her back, and she excuses herself to take said phone call in a private room, and shuts the door, when she and I are the only two people in the office. So, now I'm feeling really paranoid. If it has nothing to do with me, I cannot imagine why her conversation would be so hush hush.

I would never do anything underhanded in my position, and loyalty is a big deal to me. So, to feel not trusted goes a long way in making me feel really rotten.

342 publius @ 303 said, "We should've had a permanent base on the Moon, and manned missions to Mars should be old hat."

I used to think that. Now I think we went too soon. We weren't ready, we spent Sagan's of cash to beat Ivan to a photo op. It simply cost far too much with 1960s tech to put a pound of vehicle on the moon to ever be practical. Yet because we HAD done it, it sapped all the enthusiasm out of the low Earth orbit stuff we could actually do. Going to the Moon too soon seems to have set back the effort to actually become a space faring species.

We needed to be building space stations, learning how to live in space, how to launch craft from a space station into lunar orbit, etc. Maybe even put a station in lunar orbit and run a transit route between the stations, etc. Build out some infrastructure. And if we had all that stuff built and tested, kicking a mission to Mars off from one of them would be a lot more plausible.

I like the countdowns. Especially when I'm sitting in my car at the light wondering if the damn thing is ever going to change. I can glance over at the countdown and know how much longer I have to sit still. It's the not knowing that brings the insanity.

---------------------

That's great, when the crosswalks are synced to the lights. But when they're not...

In my city, the "Don't Walk" countdown appearing does not necessarily mean that the light is about to change. In fact, at more than one intersection, you can wait until the crosswalk stops flashing "Don't Walk", hit the button, and watch the sign change to "Walk" without the light changing even once.

It's been that way for a couple of decades.

347 you know what is really good for stress? honking your car horn. next time some motherfucker does something stupid and dangerous lay on the horn. Like when someone drives straight through a left turn arrow or turns right from the center lane across traffic.

Don't just give em a little honk, pour it on. Not like it costs you anything. When does anyone ever wear their horn out? Honk and keep honking until they are done doing whatever stupid thing they were doing. You're doing them and everyone a favor.

Should they try to stare you down keep looking right at them, keep honking, maybe even start honking your favorite song. Whatever, but pound that horn like it owes you.

-----------------------

You're forgetting one thing -

It *HAD* to be done.

Like it or not, we were in a race with the Soviets. Whoever got to the Moon first got a big propaganda boost. The alternative to not getting involved in the space race was letting the Soviets win a huge propaganda victory. We beat them to the Moon, and we got a big propaganda boost for what was, essentially, dirt cheap compared to things like Vietnam.

And the US space program didn't come to a halt after the Moon landings. The Space Shuttle was The Next Big Thing!(tm). Meanwhile, the Dems were starting to question why we were "wasting" money on the space program when we could instead be using it to help feed the poor (never mind that you could easily fit one hundred space programs into the government's welfare programs).

No, they aren't perfectly synced, but there is a relationship. If the Walk sign is on, sometimes it will be on for a very long time. But, if it has a countdown, then the pattern is clear. However many more "walk" seconds until the opposite light goes yellow, a few more until red, and then it goes to green for my direction. Give or take if there are arrow lights for turning traffic, etc.

I think Musk's plan is to launch all of the equipment needed to go to the moon on seperate launches and assemble them in Earth orbit.

First launch the engine pod, then the fuel pod, then the supply pod, then the crew pod, and then finally the re-entry vehicle with the crew in it.

431 You're forgetting one thing -

It *HAD* to be done.

Like it or not, we were in a race with the Soviets. Whoever got to the Moon first got a big propaganda boost. The alternative to not getting involved in the space race was letting the Soviets win a huge propaganda victory. We beat them to the Moon, and we got a big propaganda boost for what was, essentially, dirt cheap compared to things like Vietnam.

And the US space program didn't come to a halt after the Moon landings. The Space Shuttle was The Next Big Thing!(tm). Meanwhile, the Dems were starting to question why we were "wasting" money on the space program when we could instead be using it to help feed the poor (never mind that you could easily fit one hundred space programs into the government's welfare programs).

When the OJ Bronco chase happened, I thought, WTF? So weird, I got psychologically entangled with it.

I subscribed to cable to get CourtTV, and I VCR'd every day of the prosecution portion of the trial, then I'd FF through the BS to the salient parts.

By the time they sent it to Defense, I was sated. The State, quite simply, had screwed their own case. Never mind if the jury was just biased or not, O.J. DESERVED to be found "not guilty" in the original trial. They. Did. Not. Prove. Their Case.

Which, of course, says *nothing* about whether he did it or not. Just that I would've voted "not guilty," too, based on the evidence presented, and mis-presented, in court.

Classic case of legal malpractice on the part of all parties.

I had long known that a candidate who in no uncertain terms told the big media outlets to get bent would do very, very well. The pubbies would never, ever do that. Inexplicable. Then it dawned on me, they don't want to win. Why would they? The pay is the same. At virtually every level of government, the people in charge are like ... pod people or whatever. Like they are hand selected to look good, mumble the right platitudes, provide a power point presentation, but they don't do anything. That's their real job - to take up space, and prevent competent people from doing the job, and doing it well. This is particularly disturbing in matters of say, public health, and national defense.

487 A couple of you have pissed on W. I had a lot of problems with his policies. How he didn't fight the war in Iraq hard enough, the whole religion of peace BS, Medicaid RX and assorted other shit that he did.

However, he was a class act, and he had a very good wit. Acknowledging that shouldn't be a bad thing, even if it was used against him and just because you disagree with other things that he did and just because he isn't on your imaginary "team". That's the modus operandi of the Left.

Don't be like the Left.

Those boats look more like powered barges for river work than sea-going ships.

489 I always loved the Apollo 11 episode of that HBO series "From the Earth to the Moon." Before the launch there's an astronaut party and I think it was the Apollo 8 crew and the Apollo 11 crew and they're talking about the first words, and they were bitching about some atheist whining about them reading scripture during their orbit of the moon. They also say to Neil that if he had any balls his first words should be "OH GOD WHAT IS THAT" and then cut his mic.

But along with that you've got them asking Armstrong about if he'd vote for his fellow Ohioan and astronaut John Glenn if he ran for president. The response is "That depends, who's running for king?" I think that if those words are actually true it would say something about Armstrong's opinion on Glenn's politics or at least his opinion on Glenn's political ambitions.

490 "Living in space." We will never live in space, except in the imagination of scifi writers. Why? Because it is very hostile out there. I can understand mining the moon or asteroids (with robots). But humans colonizing Mars... you go first. Its a one way ticket livig underground to escape cosmic radiation and you will get thristy fast. Its like San Francisco. There is no there there.

492 I expect Martian or Lunar colonies, would be underground, in the near term, for sure. But many people here on Earth live out their lives scarcely going outdoors.
As long as you had regular resupply of essential goods, living underground on Mars would not necessarily be horrible.

494 WD, Thanks for the reminder about the first moon landing. I was 16 and watched every minute of live coverage. (I kind of miss that multi-ton RCA console TV.) I marveled at the usable pictures and the excellent sound coming from the moon. I can still see the NASA engineers and managers in their short sleeve white dress shirts (do they still make those?) and the earphones they all wore, each at their station staring at their screens. Don't know why, but I had my slide rule with me during the coverage and a map, probably From National Geographic, of the moon.

It's easy to recall the fear and suspense at different points of the mission and the vast relief when they landed safely and were able to lift off to dock with the capsule in lunar orbit, not a sure thing. This was all theory and experimental. The dangers of the Apollo program were well known.

I don't remember how long the unbroken news coverage went but I was awake for all of it. Towards the end I had the coffee pot working overtime so I didn't miss any of it.

And yes, I still have the slide rule.

If they are empty hulls, as yet unfitted with engines and other stuff, temporarily flooding them would do no harm.

With Apollo, the space toilet for #2 was basically a plastic bag you taped to your ass, so that explains the problems with letting one get loose.

They've probably spent no telling how much money developing a zero-g toilet. The Shuttle had one, and the first generations were faulty. They had to redesign things for female womyns, too.

Anyway, it's a vacuum contraction. Peeing is done in a funnel thing, with a tube. That's what had they to redesign for the women. The shitter is basically a hole, with suction, that goes into a bag that allows gas to get through, but not solid or liquid (supposedly).

In the first generations, there was a terrible odor problem.

They're working on a next generation one for the Orion system.

yeah that was my guess. seems like what they use on the rivers in europe. sinkning them to get them on the barge seem like waste.

The LASH concept was to haul the lighters/barges from one river port to another across an intervening ocean. IIRC, late 80s or early 90s, ESA shipped some spacecraft tooling from Europe to Marshall Space Flight Center by lighter from the factory to either Bremerhaven or Antwerp, LASH across the Atlantic to either Mobile or NOLA, then towed up the river(s), ultimately the Tennessee, to Marshall. Think they had a mad scramble to certify a dock that hadn't been used since Apollo days to offload the barge. Or they used a pier that was actually owned by the Army.

587 A couple of you have pissed on W. I had a lot of problems with his policies. How he didn't fight the war in Iraq hard enough, the whole religion of peace BS, Medicaid RX and assorted other shit that he did.

However, he was a class act, and he had a very good wit. Acknowledging that shouldn't be a bad thing, even if it was used against him and just because you disagree with other things that he did and just because he isn't on your imaginary "team". That's the modus operandi of the Left.

Don't be like the Left.

Posted by: Weirddave at July 21, 2017 12:48 AM (0otiP)


I have to disagree with you on this - especially on the part about allegedly being like the Left. W was a doormat. That's fine for his own personal dealings but when he represents people and leads a group his being a doormat affects them and the policies they desire.

Bush did a few things correct and he was very good under pressure but he made a ton of mistakes and, quite frankly, was the one most responsible for bringing this nation to the point that an America-hating retard like Barky could be elected. Bush's 2nd term was a total disaster. He veered left and merrily pushed all sorts of crap.

he was a globalist who was part and parcel of McShame's 2006-2007 push to give aid and comfort to invading illegals. He did absolutely nothing to even make pretend he wanted operative borders after 9/11 and he didn't do shit about Iran - even when he knew that Barky was going to take over and lay us all out for the mullahs. Bush also let people sitting in his cabinet basically endorse Barky (WTF kind of shit was that) and never said a bad word about Barky even though Barky called Bush every name in the book and laid the blame for everything that had happened since the dawn of time on Bush. But, the minute Trump appeared to be a viable candidate Bush stopped his silence and started muttering shit about Trump.

I have no respect for Bush. He did tons of damage. He was pathetic in the War on Terror, doing only the absolute minimum and doing it as poorly as one possibly could. And his second term - jettisoning advice from sane people to rely more on Condi Rice and others with strong leftist bents - was a total disaster.

Bush came into Washington with the GOP holding both houses of Congress and the White House and left with the GOP being a pariah to all.

I disagree (Christ, I'm defending W). Bush was the last example of the old world. Barky using full force Alinsky tactics was something new to the American body politic. We're looking back from more than a decade in the future and applying our new standards to the past. Yes, I'll admit that looking back we can see clearly how we got here from there, and W was a big reason why, but W didn't have that luxury. He was playing by the old rules.

615 I disagree (Christ, I'm defending W). Bush was the last example of the old world. Barky using full force Alinsky tactics was something new to the American body politic.

I assume you mean Barky's actions after he slimed into office. He didn't use ALinsky tactics. Barky just had not one iota of American sensibilities about him, hated America and brought the attitude of a foreigner to American politics. Of course, this was easily predictable. I, and many others, were screaming that that was what was coming from back int he campaign, the primary and the general. Barky was distinctly un-American (he was raised in Indonesia, after all) and he showed that. He wasn't burdened by many of the unconscious limits that an actual American would have. Clinton and Shrillary wished they could have shoved their socialized health care through in the 90s but they were still bound to stop, not by choice but because that was the American part of their personality that wouldn't let them. They would have loved to do what Barky did ... but only a foreigner (in personality and world view) would even think to do things like Barky did. Of course, that's why the Founders demanded that a natural born citizen be President and that's why people should have AT LEAST demanded that Barky's eligibility be settled in court one way or the other.

It wasn't alinsky that dictated Barky's political tactics. It was Indonesia.

We're looking back from more than a decade in the future and applying our new standards to the past. Yes, I'll admit that looking back we can see clearly how we got here from there, and W was a big reason why, but W didn't have that luxury. He was playing by the old rules.

I'm sorry Dave but I just don't accept your excuses for Bush. Bush was a globalist, which is a major, serious strike against him. That has nothing to do with old world manners or anything. In fact, the idea of national sovereignty is very old world. The idea of globalism is not. And that is only the tip of the problems that Bush brought with his second term.

Bush did very well in his first term, under the circumstances, but he was finished after that and should never have run for the second term. What he did in that second four years was absolutely ridiculous. He made one decent try to reform social security and after that fell through he went full-force leftwards and managed to get everyone to hate the GOP. EVERYONE. That's how the most detested person in the GOP - perhaps the most detested, ever - ended up as the 2008 nominee.

i think i found an acceptable place with violations along the lines of "the food there is tasteless and unappetizing" (zero impact, she is being fed IV) that is right across from where we used to have her mom in assisted living, and we loved the place, and its walking across the parking lot from where dad already gets coffee every morning. hopefully no bad surprises and this works.


having mom almost-die a week ago has been a lot of work. i just got that awesome colt on the ground and i am expecting another in a week. i feel like i am riding a roller coaster and i am going to throw up. on the good side i found out the outdoor Nest Cams work beautifully for watching for foals and i can get people to spell me watching so i can bathe or sleep for periods without worry. now the evil empire knows where the horses are, but i gotta admit its nice to be able to go in the AC and be able watch and hear like you are right there. Additional perk is i can show mom BABY CAM! thats a big morale booster when you are stuck in a critical care unit.

Hmmphh. THis "periods in space" thing was a big fucking deal for NASA, it turns out. There was a worry, a real worry, that the blood would just pool up, not flowing out right, and could cause bad problems.

According to the history, the women thought that was stupid, just these male doctors and engineers not knowing how it works. The women were sure it would come out correctly.

But there was only one way to know for sure, and that was for a woman to do it. And do it one did, and it turned out they were right. It would come out normally.

So that's some space history they don't talk about it much.

628 Frank Borman became ill on a mission, both vomit and diahrea. It was by all accounts not pleasant. NASA has a webpage on waste elimination, the early missions were problematic. They ate a "low residue" diet starting a couple days prior. That might be part of the reason they traditionally have steak and eggs for breakfast on launch day.

Urination was one thing, but dropping a deuce was a problem. Took about 45 minutes to an hour. They basically would tape a plastic bag to their ass. But... (heh) in the weightlessness of space, the fecal matter needs encouragement to leave the AO. Then they had to knead the bag thoroughly after breaking open some chemical pack inside the bag, a germicidal so the contents wouldn't ferment and explode later on in the mission. Nice, huh?

Correct! Many quatloos for you!

Answer to the trivia question "What were the first words spoken on the moon?":

"Contact light. OK, engine stop."

You can hear the actual recording yourself, which NASA has thoughtfully put online for posterity:

https://www.nasa.gov/wav/62283main_landing.wav

While descending, Neil Armstrong gives a bunch of navigational directions., Then, with 15 feet to go to the surface, he briefly falls silent so he can concentrate on the controls during the actual touchdown. Then, right after a nice soft landing, Aldrin radios that they did NOT crash land, as feared, but instead had a "light" landing, and that he was now turning off the engines. Full dialog:

"Contact light. OK, engine stop. Houston, uh, Tranquility Base here: the Eagle has landed."

Not actually sure who -- Armstrong or Aldrin -- said which part.

Then they had to knead the bag thoroughly after breaking open some chemical pack inside the bag, a germicidal so the contents wouldn't ferment and explode later on in the mission. Nice, huh?

The flags are presumed to be bleached white.

The LRO (orbiter) imaged the Apollo landing sites back in 2011. The resolution wasn't high enough to make out the details, but you could see the flag assemblies in some of them still standing. So something is still standing.

The Apollo 11 flag, unfortunately, was blown over by the ascent stage engine blast. They planted it too close. So after that, they started planting them further away.

They've done a lot of work from the images, and they confirmed Apollo 11's flag was blown over as Aldrin reported.

The mechanism on Apollo 12's flag was faulty -- the vertical arm to hold it out wouldn't lock in place, so it just had to hang down.

640 I assumed "contact light" meant that an indicator light was illuminated?

It was 15, I think where they landed hard enough to prang the descent engine bell, the pilot said "bang!", and it was at a pretty good landing. Lots of dust kicked up. Spatial cues are weird on earth even, at times it's tough to gauge altitude. Anyway, it seems to me they came close to rolling the LM... which would of course been total disaster. Which leads me to wonder. If that had happened, would they have tried to somehow right the craft? Could they? What a nightmare that would have been.

That's a good question. I, conversely, have always been under the impression that "Contact light" meant "(Our) contact (on the surface was) light," i.e. "We successfully made a light/soft landing."

But perhaps your version is correct -- perhaps he's merely saying "I see the little light on the panel indicating that contact with the surface has been achieved."

Anybody know the definitive answer of what was meant by "Contact light?"

If you dare, with some searching you read all the poop on shitting in space, and why they did things the way they did them. Turns out, liquids were easy to vent to space, but solids weren't so easy. They've exposed solids to vacuum to dry them out and all that.

On the ISS, they do throw the dried turds overboard, I believe.

The Apollo shitting procedure was a mess. They would usually strip butt naked to keep from getting anything on their clothes. Then tape the shit bag to their ass and do it.

They say the other astronauts, right in their next to them, would get as far away as possible, and try not to look.

They had what they called a "finger tube" to aid in dislodging any stubborn material.....

The whole thing would take up to an hour to do.

644 One thing that's weird, the moon looks small from earth, because the earth is so much bigger. So I'd expect the earth to look positively huge from the surface of the moon. It doesn't of course, but I'm not sure why. Those pictures in LIFE magazine when they first came out were part of growing up in the 60s. Anders probably took the '68 shot, that is pretty much iconic. The first humans to leave earth, just incredible still.

Contact light indeed meant an indicator light went off. THe landing pods had little feelers on the bottom, little probes. When they hit lunar soil, it would trigger the light telling them they'd made contact and to shut off the engine.

You would need a little ramrod to jam the bag up snug against the outside door. When the outside door opened, air trapped inboard of the bag would force it out, and if the bag ruptured, it would rupture on the outside.

You could test this in a vacuum chamber on Earth.

671 One thing that surprised me too, the later missions, one of them went to the taurus-littrow (sp) area. With the rover. There's a mountain in one of the areas they are at, but there's nothing to gauge how high it is. No reference points in the photos. From casually looking at it, guess maybe it's a couple thousand feet. Turns out it's something like 15,000 feet - waaay out of scale to what my eyes were at first telling me. They really tried to focus on landing in interesting areas geologically speaking later on, whereas the first missions emphasized landing in as flat an area as possible.

Sure, taking the scientific approach there are plenty of possibilities.

On that one what happened to the ships? Or technology generally? My recollection is that folks hated the ending to the recent Battlestar Galactica series because their answer to the question was, at least emotionally, unsatisfactory. I mean if you identify the great filter (in this case the Cylons) and take steps to prevent it from occurring, surely you take steps to explain to your progeny why you did what you did, and preserving that record if *the most important thing* in your new civilization.

Even if the landing was accidental and generally catastrophic, some stuff would have survived with whichever people did. And presumably the 'How to start from scratch in case reentry goes sideways" manuals would be in a priority safety location with the passengers.

Additionally, if we're the aliens on earth, were we the only colonists from wherever? I doubt that is likely, as it would mean the filter happened just as (within the time required to build another colony ship) the colony ship launched. So where are the other colonies? If we were the first to land, that sort of implies earth is closest to the point of origin (alternatively, every earlier ship failed), in which case, how have we not identified it? If we weren't the first to get started, then the other colonies are older and should be detectable.

Or at least that's my off the cuff, 2am take on it.

Posted by: Methos at July 21, 2017 03:27 AM (3Liv/)

677
Yeah, on Apollo 17's landing site, the Earth was the lowest in the sky of any of the missions, and that allowed them to get that shot of Cernan (and some of Schmitt) with the Earth visible.

Now, the view of the Earth from the Moon. The Moon is in tide lock, of course, keeping the same face to the Earth. So the Earth doesn't move (much...) in the sky from a given spot on the Moon.

The Earth does however, go through phases, just the opposite of the Moon from Earth. Full Moon = New Earth, and New Moon = Full Earth.

Because of the complexities of the orbit, which you can look up, the Earth will move around a little bit in the sky as it goes through its phases.

No. Bush's globalism is much deeper than this. It is a refutation of the notion of nation.

And what you call "free trade" I would prefer be called "open economic borders" because it has absolutely nothing to do with trade. It's only about allowing everyone else to import or come in and participate in our economy. It has pretty much never led to us being able to do the same in theirs, and no one who has pushed for it has ever even wanted that.

So ... I wouldn't accept the stipulation with that caveat. The globalists are very interested in doing away with the concept of the sovereign nation.

Having only traveled in Italy, and in the northern part of the country (which is essentially where most of the money is) I can only describe my experience to that extent. Trains were generally clean, fast (especially the Freccia Trains) and more or less on time. Europe is more condensed than North America and so cities and regions are very interconnected.

Florence isn't north-north, like Lake Como or Trentino, etc. It's Tuscany which has more of an Italian identity as opposed to the very north of the country which has more in common culturally to Switzerland and Austria.

LGBT Megadonor Pouring Millions Into Campaign to Punish Christians for Refusing to Participate in Gay Weddings; "Punish the Wicked," Xe Advises

Pretty soon you'll have to give same-sex oral sex on demand or face legal punishment.

Openly gay LGBT activist Tim Gill, who has poured $422 million into the homosexual movement since the 1990s, recently told Rolling Stone why he won't allow Christians to opt out of participating in same-sex weddings.

"We're going to punish the wicked," Gill told Rolling Stone. After the 2015 Supreme Court decision Obergefell v. Hodges legalized same-sex marriage across the country, Gill turned his activism apparatus against religious freedom restoration acts (RFRAs) and toward a legal mentality that would penalize Christians, and anyone else in business, who refuse to participate in a same-sex wedding.

He, and Rolling Stone, frame this as a heroic battle against those who would deny gays "public accommodations."

But it's a very limited sort of denial -- it's just people, Christian and otherwise, who don't want to be part of gay weddings:

The "public accommodations" push is exactly the line LGBT activists use to undercut Christians' freedom to opt out of serving same-sex weddings.

I'm not really kidding when I say the only way Gay Activists won't be #Triggered and #Oppressed is if everyone agrees to their demands to experiment with some light homosexuality themselves.

As evidence for this: a 20 year old quote from Dumb Actor Ben Affleck resurfaced. Back then, he said the "greatest challenge" for a male actor was having to kiss another man.

You know -- because straight men have -- get this! -- a real psychological and biological aversion to any intimate touching of another male.

But he's being hectored about it, because their idea of sexual freedom requires your sexual subjugation.

28 When NYS legalized gay marriage, the same statute included religious freedom provisions. No gay wedding cakes mandated!

IIRC, the other states that legalized gay marriage did this too.

This got short-circuited by SCOTUS Kennedy's fortune cookie opinion that mandated gay marriage in all 57 states.

Yet we see the coercion and criminalizing of dissent. That's why those News Molestors from ABC called it a hate crime to disagree, even though the group they libeled just won its seventh SCOTUS case. They were really aiming for you and me.

Next they want to abolish women's rooms and privacy for girls, as if that were a thoughtless tic and not a prerequisite for civilization, safety, privacy and dignity.

If they ever get that, they'll move on to polygamy. If they get that, chain marriage. If they get that, age of consent laws. If they get that, etc., etc.

That's why it all had to be court-imposed tyranny; the people wouldn't consent.

What this Gill person is after is the exact same thing Sodom and Gomorrah demanded of Lot: mandatory participation in homosexual activity. That ain't right, and God fixed the problem.

A friend of mine works as a drug counselor in a state parole system. She said it is remarkable how many prison guards , workers, etc. become friends with inmates , which is how you end up with women helping men escape, etc. They are constantly being educated and counseled on the dangers of falling for these inmates ability to charm others, often that's how the dangerous ones groomed their victims.

OJ is just as slimy today as he was in 1997. It took his hideous carcass 30 minutes to finally take responsibility , sort of, for his robbery crime. Prior to that at the hearing today, he kept going on and on justifying what caused him to commit the crime.

Likely as he has done for 25 years in his mind regarding Nicole and Ron.

Laughing my gerbil-free ass off!

Got to see Sam one night in Vegas shortly before he died. Brought a guy from the audience -- who'd recently had his heart broken -- up on stage. Had a phone hooked up to a microphone and had the guy call his ex-girlfriend.

Sam gets on the line and starts having a polite conversation with her, and then slowly gets more and more agitated until he then he goes off on her per his usual act.

It was rather therapeutic for me as I'd recently had my heart broken, and I had tears of laughter and pain in my eyes for several minutes.

If the national GOP had simply said, starting back in the Nineties, that marijuana laws were a Tenth Amendment states' rights issue, and then at the state level in places like Colorado had taken a live-and-let-live laissez-faire stance on pot use and sales, it would have taken this off the table and denied it to Democrats.

The message in the future will slowly morph into "homosexuality is a choice, an the morally superior one!" Children will be taught that being homosexual is better for the planet, because no icky children are born unless you go through IVF or a surrogate.

Turned it off when I saw it and told the kids they weren't allowed to watch it anymore. I used the jokes about passing gas as my reason because I don't want to have The Gay conversation with my pre-teens.

F*ck you, gay agenda pieces of selfish trash.

BB has an article with quotes from the Guardian regarding Gates' announcement. She is quoted as saying the following .

This is a difficult time for family planning. Gates said at the Summit. As you know, we are deeply troubled by the Trump administrations deep budget cuts.

She is upset that the Trump reinstated the Mexico policy which prohibits any US funding of organizations overseas that provide abortions. Gates wants to say she doesn't fund abortion but of course, wants to fund abortion clinics that also provide contraceptives.

Meh, a while back I developed the "triangle model" of US politics. Imagine a triangle with points labeled "stability", "personal freedom", and "equality". Conservatives value stability most highly, libertarians value personal freedom, and progressives value equality. Most people fall along one edge of the triangle. In the case of drugs, conservatives tend to oppose drugs and support drug laws because drugs are seen as destabilizing to a society. Libertarians are in favor of the right to freely consume a drug, and progressives are split: half favor legalization because drug laws disproportionately harm poor and minorities, while the other half oppose drugs because the ravage poor and minority communities and help keep them in poverty.

You pull into either parking lot and the lots are full of single men sitting in their cars waiting for Prince Charming. It really ticks me off because one of those parks has the most beautiful rose garden. The other park is mostly a big, open green space just perfect for antsy little kids to run around until they drop to the ground, totally exhausted.

No, Gill has spent that much.

Back in 03, Gill, along with 3 other billionaires/ multi-millionaires basically bought the Democrat party in Colorado. They'd thought that Bill Clinton was too much of a squishy moderate and wanted to return it back to its "real" values. So these 4 poured millions upon millions into the election at every level of politics. If you were a Dem State Rep who only agreed with Gill 80% of the time, you suddenly found yourself primaried with a very well funded opponent who was Gill's rubber stamp. Very few of those Dems survived that. And at every level of politics, you suddenly had candidates funded at the next level up. State reps suddenly had the money that two years prior that folks running for the US House had. And you had school board elections where those candidates were running radio ads while their opponents might have enough for some mailings. Within a few years, pretty much every Dem in CO was either beholden to Gill & Co for their office or was already in their corner. (i.e. DeGette) And since then, Gill has been continuing to plow money into politics. He spent another $20 million last year into, I think it was GA, because there was a ballot measure about same sex bathrooms. Believe me, Gill is perfectly happy to spend his entire fortune to "make things right."

Samantha Power Is Now a Key Figure in Unmasking Probe

She was the Ambassador to the UN. She wasn't an intelligence analyst and wasn't law enforcement.

She just didn't have any appropriate reason to be requesting the unmaskings she requested.

Power appears to be central to efforts by top Obama administration officials to identify individuals named in classified intelligence community reports related to Trump and his presidential transition team, according to multiple sources.

...

Power's role in this unmasking effort is believed to be particularly questionable given her position as the U.N. ambassador, a post that does not typically require such sensitive unmasking activities, according to former U.S. officials and other sources familiar with the matter.

"Unmasking is not a regular occurrence--absolutely not a weekly habit. It is rare, even at the National Security Council, and ought to be rarer still for a U.N. ambassador," according to one former senior U.S. official who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.

...

"That's just not the sort of thing that she should have been concerned about, unless she was playing the role of political operative with the help of the intelligence community," [a] source said. "It gives away what was actually going on: the Obama administration was operating in a pervasive culture of impunity and using the intelligence community against their political opponents."

Rep. DeSantis continues showing spine:

...

"I think Congress and some members on the Intelligence Committee can call Ben Rhodes to testify," DeSantis said. "He may be able to invoke executive privilege from when Obama was president, but he definitely can't do that in any interactions he's had since then."

Whether or not they subpeona him is up to Trent Gowdy -- and whether he has a spine, or just wants to get along with his Good Friends.

Trump was supposed to not play by the heads they win tails you lose rules. He needs to be calling special counsels into every single one of those dirty rat fuckers as turnabout to the witch hunt they have Muller running.

19 I get the cynicism but I don't get your targets today. Gowdy said back in the Spring that he would subpoena Susan Rice if she refused to appear. She's appearing.

Gowdy was the guy who called Lerner on her ridiculous attempt to plead the 5th after making an opening statement. He was also all over Benghazi and F&F.

I've never seen anything from Gowdy that leads me to believe he won't bring the thunder when he needs to.

I'm trying to think of the name of a kid's game in the '60s or '70s that was similar to the famous game "Operation" (using tweezers to remove plastic "bones" from electrified holes) but instead involved looking in a mirror and doing some similar coordination task with tongs or tweezers, but made infinitely more difficult because everything is backwards in the mirror image.

It was a pretty famous game, but for the life of me I can't remember it. Tantalus? Tantalizer?

I was thinking that the fact that the Democrats thought they could sink Trump with the bogus Russian prostitutes peeing "dossier" might offer a clue about the sort of dirt they have on other prominent political figures. Hell, that was probably tame compared to some of the real stuff out there.

52 >>Name someone of consequence who is in jail! I'll wait...

How exactly does Congress indict someone let alone call them before a grand jury or convict them of a crime let alone put them in jail?

Go ahead, give me a comprehensive list of all the people Congress has put in jail in the history of this nation. I'll wait.

The job of Congressional oversight is to uncover evidence of wrong doing and then it is the job of the DOJ to take it from there and do the actual law enforcement. How was running DOJ for the last 8 years?

A most cromulent and valid point, so I rephrase the question, how many recommendations for prosecution of persons of significance are even queued up in Congress (House and/or Senate) for referral to DoJ do you think there are in play?

Frankly, I understand this is virtually an impossible question to answer accurately due to our great legal system, but my guess is the number is exceeding small (probably zero) and won't increase anytime soon.

107 Well Trump said he was disappointed in Session and his recusal and that he (Trump) wouldn't have hired Sessions if he (Trump) had know that Sessions was going to recuse himself.

Then Session said he would remain as DOJ for as long as something (possible I think was the word)

And then a White House Spokes Person said that the President has total confidence in Sessions, which is inside D.C. code for 'he will be fired this week end.

And besides, presumably the DoJ could act on its own if it wanted to.

No idea. But I do agree its probably close to zero, on both sides of the aisle. So far, its been pretty much Trump administration people in front of Congress. And it's all been nothing and will continue to be.

But that is about to change. This is the problem with the left screaming Russia non-stop and demanding a complete investigation with a special prosecutor, you never know where things will go.

Don't forget, Trump claimed that Trump Tower, the site of the Don Jr meeting, was bugged during the campaign. And now we are going to start hearing from Obama people about leaks and illegal unmasking, actual crimes.

How did news of this meeting during the campaign get leaked to the media? Who knew and how? Who asked for Flynn to be unmasked? Who got that information?

Questions are going to be a lot more fun starting next week and neither Eric Holder nor Loretta Lynch is running the DOJ.

Toomey sort of blew the lid off.

My interpretation of what he said was basically, we (the DC GOP Establishment) didn't expect Trump to win because we think the voters are stupid, so we didn't do anything to help his campaign and didn't even bother to plan how to follow through on our signature campaign promise of repealing Obamacare, haven't done anything to support his agenda since he was elected, and really kind of hope we lose the House and Senate in 2018 because we are sure our friends across the aisle will still let us collect out graft, sweet salaries, and perks without expecting us to perform any actual action beyond acquiescence with the Progressive Deep State's Master Plan.

Me too, but we sort of all ready are. Part of winning is actually winning and we are winning all over the country. Deportations are up, illegals coming in are way, way down. The media is at its lowest point in public opinion maybe ever. Polling is showing that a majority of Republican voters, the people who actually pay for their kids schooling, don't think college is worth it anymore. The media isn't reporting it but ISIS is being crushed because we are actually fighting them and we are retaking our place on the world stage as the guy with the biggest pair.

Liberalism is being exposed everywhere and people are rejecting it. I want to see these assholes punished but what I really want is liberalism to die. We are definitely on the right path at last.

Up till then he was doing pretty good.

Massive cuts must be made and Snyder did a good job with editing it and taking it in the direction he chose to take it.

And then he...he...he just...Completely. Changed. The. Ending. Just completely changed it You cannot just completely change the ending of The Watchmen. It's not done. And he did. And pissed off everyone who ever read the book.

275 The original ending to Watchmen was absurd. Giant squids may have been a fine catastrophe for the 80's, but just comes across as camp outside of Lovecraftian settings now. I think the change worked fine and does well enough at establishing an external threat as an impetus for peace.

283 Given the revelations so far and the assumption that what we don't know is going to be more extensive and more criminal than what we do, I'd suggest the rot in the democrat party and the civil service is now so deep that only an armed response is going to fix it. The legal system has neither the spine nor the ability to investigate criminal networks of this size and power, especially when many of the investigators will be part of the criminal networks.

Furthermore, Obama's plan appears to include contongencies for martial law...

"Though the plan emphasized the vital role that local authorities would play in combating the hackers, clarifying that they would have primary jurisdiction during an attack, it noted that for the deployment of "armed federal law enforcement agents" who would be deployed to polling places if hackers managed to halt voting.

It also foresaw the deployment of "Active and Reserve" military forces and members of the National Guard "upon a request from a federal agency and the direction of the Secretary of Defense or the President."

286 Jeff Sessions is one of the most (probably the only honorable men) in Trump's administration.

I wasn't fan on DJT, but preferred him over Mrs. Clinton.
Jeff Sessions spoke with DOJ before recusing himself. DJT hasn't the appreciation of Sessions & what his endorsement of him did for him.

I'm very disappointed in Trump for doing same as his precedessor & throw people under the bus. DJT has a childish nature & he is vindictive. I expected he'd be an orange version of The JEF.

Al Gore, When Asked If We've Hit a Point of No Return Like He Previously Predicted We Would: Well, In Some Ways. But the Paris Accords Changed So Much!

God's gonna take me home unless you donate $100,000 to my ministry.

Wait -- we're at $90,000. God now says you have a two week extension to donate, and if you donate now, He'll give you Heavenly Oven Mitts, free of charge. (Shipping costs extra.)


Back with a sequel to An Inconvenient Truth, former Vice President Al Gore reflected on his 2006 prediction that “the world would reach a point of no return within 10 years” if “drastic measures” were not taken to combat climate change.

Gore was asked why he made that prediction in the first film and if he has another prediction to make about climate change now 11 years later.

“First of all, we’ve seen a lot of progress since the first movie came out. We have the Paris agreement now. The cost of renewable energy has come down so quickly that people are switching over. Unfortunately, some levels of the Earth system have crossed a point of no return,” Gore said during an interview with PJM on the green carpet of the An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power screening Wednesday evening at the Newseum.

Video of a fat man sweating at the link.

Oh by the way: Science-denying transexual advocate Bill Nye says the only way now to save the earth is to hope for old people to die.

I assume he doesn't mean himself or Al Gore, who are old. And also, unattractive.

Just pointing that out.

"Climate change deniers, by way of example, are older. It's generational," Nye told the Los Angeles Times. Nye said that he is calling them out with "due respect," acknowledging that he is "now one of them."

"We're just going to have to wait for those people to 'age out,' as they say," Nye went on, adding that "age out" is a euphemism for "die." "But it'll happen, I guarantee you — that'll happen."

By the way -- remember that cringepocalypse "song" and "dance" number Bill Nye had on his show, celebrating transexualism and deviant sex of all varieties?

On a show that seems primarily interested in propagandizing to children? (Both of the "real children" type and Adult Baby Monster type?)

It was "sung" by Rachel Bloom, a "comedienne" chiefly famous for having big jugs, singing stupid children's songs about want to have nerd sex, and not being so attractive that nerds think they couldn't maybe have a shot with her.

“Sexuality’s a spectrum, everyone is on it. Even you might like it if you sit up on it,” Bloom sings on stage as Nye can be seen off-stage dancing. “Drag king, drag queen just do what feels right.”

Yeah -- he got an Emmy nomination for that shit.

Trust your betters.

Because there will be a temperature we hit that acidifies the oceans and kills all the sea life and once that happens, bang, zoom, its Just. Like. Venus.

Some, err, challenges to that narrative. 1 - it has been warmer than the temps that say represent a point of no return, and yet, we returned from it. 2 - the CO2 number that is supposed to be Earth = Venus is like 400 ppm. Do you know how many parts per million CO2 is in the Venusian atmosphere? 960,000. Which is somewhat more than 400.

And I'm the fucking science denier.

61 The whole "well things didn't stay the same so we got a reprieve" is the point of skepticism about AGW hysteria.

Nothing ever stays the same. The planet is an ever-changing platform, the universe is constantly in flux. Technology grows and changes.

Ehrlich made the same idiot mistake in the late 60s: we're all going to starve! Yeah, assuming your calculations are accurate (they weren't) and nothing changes in technology, farming, or behavior. But that's ridiculous.

Only someone who is an idiot or unforgivably ignorant of history would think that progress and change stops suddenly when they make their predictions.

87 Boy, reporting really going downhill this afternoon.

Nye may be a flaming bag of dog shit, but referring to Max Planck's dictum that "science advances one funeral at a time," however clumsily or however in support of bad hypotheses over good... it's still not genocide.

Mind you, I think he's previously called for aggressive population control, which is a lot closer to that.

Gore is just a flaming bag of greedy, grafting dog shit.

Earth goes through various cycles, and neither of these pigshit celebrities have the vaguest idea how all that shit works.

OMG CO2! It was almost low enough centuries ago to kill off plant life. We are actually *in* a carbon-death end cycle for life on Earth (though it's *really* slow) and, barring other inputs, all the carbon will effectively be sequestered and inaccessible.

That "other input" is burning stores of carbon. We *may* have actually saved life on Earth accidentally.

CO2 gets too low, plants die, animals die, CO2 goes up, plants live, animals live, CO2 goes down, plants die... but the thing is, over hundreds of millions of years, the CO2 peaks have gone from 9000+ ppm to 300 ppm, and under about 150 you have massive plant die-offs.

If that process continued without some change, you'd eventually have sequestered carbon and fossils and not much else.

(WASHINGTON) — Police have received reports that two of the Burundi teenagers missing after an international robotics competition were seen crossing the border into Canada.

There was no official indication Thursday that any of the teens were trying to avoid returning to their homes in Africa, but a leader in the Burundian community in the U.S. suggested that they may be intending to seek asylum. Immigration attorneys said an asylum application could take years to sort out.

132 Aaaccceeeee, if we're gonna have a post about Global Warming, we need to note the devastating new study that just came out, proving the the underlying data appearing to demonstrate a "warming" trend is demonstrably fake, and that they primarily have faked it by retroactively LOWERING the temperature in past decades, through incremental "adjustments" to the raw measurements:

Blog post about the report here:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-07-15/ research-team-slams-global-warming-data-new-report-not-reality-totally-inconsistent-

Raw pdf of the report itself here:

https://thsresearch.files.wordpress.com/2017/05/ ef-gast-data-research-report-062717.pdf

It's completely crushing, game over for the alarmists. Turns out THERE IS NO WARMING AT ALL, and that the unadjusted real temperature measurements from the past were all about the same as they are today, and have been fraudulently downward-adjusted in an unscientific way retroactively, to make the present seem warm by comparison.

It's harder to fake brand-new satellite data, so they solved the dilemma by going back and faking the old data! Incredible!

Timing is one of their issues. The local libbie tv news ran a story this week about how Alaska's temperatures this summer have been record highs all along. They were immediately taken to task for publishing such crap. This has been a cool and somewhat overcast and rainy summer--not a record.

And the day before, they had a feature story on a boutique farmer up in the Matanuska Valley who was bemoaning the fact that she wasn't going to get any corn this year because of the cool temperatures.

They don't even know what in hell they are reporting from day to day. It ain't about the truth.

It's completely crushing, game over for the alarmists. Turns out THERE IS NO WARMING AT ALL, and that the unadjusted
real temperature measurements from the past were all about the same as
they are today, and have been fraudulently downward-adjusted in an
unscientific way retroactively, to make the present seem warm by
comparison.



It's harder to fake brand-new satellite data, so they solved the dilemma by going back and faking the old data! Incredible!

A group of scientists got ahold of one of those programs and inputted data in the past, to see what they'd predict about what would happen.

Swamp Gonna Swamp: Official State Department Report Suggests Israel Is Responsible for Palestinian Murders of Israelis

The Deep State doesn't care who the current president is, or what policies that democratically-elected person supports.

They have their own agenda, their own power sources, and a near-freedom from any consequences due to pretty-much guaranteed lifetime tenure and a political class too cowardly to put them in their places. Or better yet out of their places.

he State Department is facing harsh criticism for claiming in an official report that Israel is to blame for terrorism attacks committed by Palestinians and accusing the Jewish state of being largely responsible for an impasse in peace negotiations, according to a leading member of Congress who is calling on the State Department to correct its "inaccurate and harmful" characterization of Israel.

The State Department, in its latest annual report on the global terrorism situation, blames Israeli security policies for stalling the peace process and claims that Palestinians rarely incite terror attacks.

The claims are coming under fierce criticism from pro-Israel advocates and have prompted one leading member of Congress to formally call on the Trump administration to amend the report to more accurately reflect the situation.

McMasters, Tillerson, and Mattis should all be fired, in that order, with the possibility that the later two will learn from the first firing and correct themselves.

They're disasters. It's interesting that the Establishment GOPe took such comfort in the appointments of McMasters and Mattis, when most of the people I trust told me they were disasters from the moment they were named.

Posted by: Mark Andrew Edwards at July 20, 2017 04:32 PM (3OIiX)

6 This report is the predictable result of appointing an establishment robot like Tillerson Sec of State. Tillerson could have stopped it, but did not. Because he has been marinating in this establishment horseshit for his entire career.

Who appointed Tillerson? That's the guy you should blame for this disgusting report.

BTW, your orange-haired hero appointed Tillerson at the recommendation of --- Bob Gates, the uber-establishment SecDef to both W and Obama. Garbage in, Garbage out.

I agree! If the world's worst people thought Tillerson was a tough negotiator when he represented Exxon, what must they think now that he has the full force of the USA behind him? He looks like the muppet Bald Eagle, ffs! Mattis is just amazing. Every Marine got a moto-boner when he was nominated, and I have to believe that morale boost is spreading like wildfire. Etc. Ace's calls for their termination seems a little out of left field - I certainly haven't noticed earlier concerns.

I have no way of knowing this but my gut tells me this is more of a case of Tillerson not even knowing what is in this report than him actively participating in it. I've seen nothing that he has done to lead me to believe he would bash Israel and support the PA.

75 "It's interesting that the Establishment GOPe took such comfort in the
appointments of McMasters and Mattis, when most of the people I trust
told me they were disasters from the moment they were named."

I was among those who harbored high hopes for Mattis. They've largely been dashed.

I was particularly put off by the comment by Mattis to Congress about how if they didn't fully fund the State Department's diplomatic efforts, there weren't going to be any cost savings, because they would be having to buy more ammo for DoD instead.

Whereas the reality is that the striped-pants popinjays at Foggy Bottom have, over the existence of their department, helped get America into a bunch of needless fights, and have needlessly prolonged needful fights.

We'd all be better off if State's entire arrogant brain trust of senior FSOs were put out to pasture, and the department shrunken down to a skeleton crew performing only the minimally necessary diplomatic functions. No need to have a sprawling foreign policy apparatus full of think-tank wanks if one "goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy".

Do not make eye contact.
Speak softly and back away to a safe space.
Tell the Palestinian that you are human and mean him no harm.
Do not feed the Palestinian.

164 This is a retrospective report on 2016. It was published today.

A Republican congressman wrote a letter that was critical of the reports on Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

For example, this part:

Continued drivers of violence included a lack of hope in achieving Palestinian statehood, Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank, settler violence against Palestinians in the West Bank, the perception that the Israeli government was changing the status quo on the Haram Al Sharif/Temple Mount, and IDF tactics that the Palestinians considered overly aggressive.

You may not agree with them, but they are definitely all "justifications" proffered by Palestinians for their terrorism. Just like Al Qaeda put the blame for their war on the US for US troops stationed in Saudi Arabia. Does acknowledging that they made that argument justify it or give it credence? Does it mean that you are blaming the US for 9/11? No.

Unfortunately, no he can't. He has fired quite a few people including just about all of the US Attorneys and very publicly the FBI Director, but they are political appointees. Once you get into civil servants it is a whole new ballgame. And look at the shit he is getting for dumping Comey who almost nobody likes, even the left.

There were always going to be bumps with both draining the swamp and having an administration that has some of the least elected governance as a group in one hell of a long time.

People need to chill just a tad. The left and the deep state have fighting Trump from day 1 with leaks and slow walking almost every single appointment. This was never going to be a 6 month turnaround. Six years won't even be enough.

191 If there is one weakness Trump has it's his hiring ability or rather the people he trusted to present him with viable candidates who actually want to MAGA.

Unfortunately, with people like Chris Christie on his transition team there are way too many NeverTrumpers in his orbit.

I think even he is shocked at the deterioration of our system. He most likely expected that once he was inaugurated a lot of this bullshit would die down and our country could at least function at least partially normally.

Now we've had a silent coup running for seven months. Even inadvertently aided by his own people - see Jeff Sessions.

Posted by: Peaches at July 20, 2017 06:13 PM (EgOr3)

205 I think what Ace is talking about is Mattis and McMaster are both still under the delusion that Jihad (aka Terrorism) is not related to Islam. Mattis thinks it has something to do with Shia-Sunni split and McMaster has flatly stated Jihadist have nothing to do with Islam at all. That it is a perversion of Islam.

Some have argued that they just say stuff like this because of the military situation they are in. We have troops stuck in majority Muslim countries, and if we equate Jihadist with Islam at the government level our troops will be put in more danger.

That part is true. However, and better counter argument is made that how can we ever defeat Jihadist if we don't make the obvious theological and historical connection to Islam? Answer is you cannot, therefore Jihadist movement in the end win over time using the "lets pretend Jihad has nothing to do with Islam strategy". To defeat Jihad you must confront Islamic theology head on.

I would argue that Mattis and McMaster are good military men, but are just wrong about the best way to wage the war against Jihad. Both are influenced by Petraeus, who thought that we could fight the Iraq war the same way the British fought the Communist in Malaya.

The problem is, and has been proven again and again, is Communist insurgences and Jihad are different beasts. Communist appeal to class, ethnic and economic grievances. Islamic jihadist are appealing to paradise in heaven and also to the entrenched Islamic cultural and religious traditions of the people in the area.

A few building projects and free apartments are not going to satisfy someone influenced by the Quran and Hadith to do Holy War.

"Continued drivers of violence included a lack of hope in achieving Palestinian statehood, Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank, settler violence against Palestinians in the West Bank, the perception that the Israeli government was changing the status quo on the Haram Al Sharif/Temple Mount, and IDF tactics that the Palestinians considered overly aggressive.

When you have 10 minutes or so, watch the Ted Talk that the owner of the Matunuck Oyster Bar gives. It's on the website. He is beyond passionate about not just seafood but the aquaculture industry. They also have a farm where they grow their own produce. Everything is farm to table.

That's why people voted for him! Instead he just tweets. Now it's too late - firing everyone now makes it look like a cover-up. If he wouldve done it on Day 1 - like he was elected to do - the optics would be reversed and the crazies would look even crazier.

87 From the article: An intimate understanding of the Constitution of the United States is mandatory for any presidential office holder. Hillary Clinton has read it and understands it.

But the author of the article hasn't read it, nor does he understand it. The popular vote doesn't count for mush. Impeaching Trump doesn't mean you get to hand the Presidency to the runner-up. It's in the Constitution dummy, you know, the thing you seem to argue is important, except when it's not?

I especially love this part:
We now know the election was rigged in favor of Donald Trump. We do? What evidence ... ah forget it. Feelings, nothing more than, feeeeeeelings.

Impeach Trump? Really HOW?!?!? You MIGHT win 2 senate seats making it a tie. IF you defend every one of your vulnerable seats. They don't live in reality.

In 2016, Democrats defended 10 seats, while Republicans defended 24 seats. 2 seat Dem gain.

2018: Democrats are expected to have 23 seats up for election along with 2 independents who caucus with them. Republicans are expected to have 8 seats up for election.

Here's your odds 13 vulnerable Democrats and 2 Republicans. I hate to burst your bubble. Your best case is a tie.

6 safe Republicans: Wicker, Fischer, Corker, Cruz, Hatch, Barrasso

2 possibly vulnerable Republicans: Flake, Heller

12 safe Democrats (including 2 Dem-caucusing I's): Feinstein, Murphy, Carper, Hirono, King, Cardin, Warren, Klobuchar, Gillibrand, Whitehouse, Sanders, Cantwell

3 currently safe Democrats who could become vulnerable if circumstances change: Stabenow, Heinrich, Menendez

306 If Ishac and most of his commenters are any indication, they still haven't got past the Denial stage.

This is the guy who has written, with all apparent seriousness, that Trump would be out of office by a week ago, then revised it to middle of next month. Really - he admits it in this medium article.

Anyway, it's not 14 argument points, it's at best 13 - #1 and #3 are *the same point* - which has *no* evidence to support other than the wishes of so many progs and #nevertrumpers.

And he insists the President should know the Constitution as well as he just *knows* Hillary does, being the bested candidate *evar*. All the while ignoring the Constitution himself with the "Hillary won the popular vote" argument and dismissing the succession portion of the 25th Amendment while hoping the "incapacitation" portion will remove Trump.

Posted by: Jeff Weimer at July 20, 2017 04:51 PM (17QyB)

307 Ishac's sound, solid, unassailable reasons why Hillary should be president:

1. Trump cheated
2. Trump didn't play fair
3. Trump cheated
4. Trump didn't really win
5. Trump cheated
6. Trump colluded with the Russians
7. Trump cheated
8. Trump wouldn't really be President if he hadn't cheated
9. Trump cheated
10. Trump cheated
11. Trump cheated
12. Trump cheated
13. Did I remember to say that Trump cheated
14. Hillary is a goddess.

He had Shemp almost fainting over his description of OJ "almost cutting the head off of his wife and her friend, Ron Goldman", " I would be worried as a victim that he might do that to them if he gets out of jail".

I couldn't believe his comments. I agree, most sane , non racist people loathe OJ and would love for him to meet his fate via a wood chipper, but he is not looking to be paroled from that crime.
The parole was fair and even handed. Geraldo is only showing his inability to be a neutral reporter when something is against his sensibilities.
