What's on the agenda this weekend?

A reminder to read this stuff from Al Fin

Some links obtained from that post:
Cash crops which include bananas  I'm interested in cash crops cause I'm gonna need some cash.

Al Fin has some interesting posts.  This is a reminder to check it out.

Plus, I will continue to work on the Bentonite lab and water filtration.


Ace: CDC: FYI, Ebola Can Be Transmitted Through Droplets In the Air

wha???

CDC has been deliberately misrepresenting the transmission pathway of ebola by stating, over and over and over again, that it was not an "airborne" pathogen.- Ace
What do you call a government that puts you at risk and then lies about it?

Perhaps you can call it a government on the way out.  Hopefully on Tuesday.


School Filing ‘Racial Discrimination’ Against Students Who Refuse Muslim Education

School Filing ‘Racial Discrimination’ Against Students Who Refuse Muslim Education



comment:



What is f*@#?!?



What the hell kind of crap are they teaching kids these days?  No prayer in school, but okay to prosletyze Islam.  It ought to be a case for the Supreme Court, but don't bet on it.


Update:

Looks like the school is in the UK.  Oops.

Bentonite experiment update

This didn't work out too well.  As mentioned in an earlier post, the main piece cracked badly, which indicated too much clay.  The other two pieces are too small to be useful for further experimentation.  I did play around with the bigger of those two pieces just before writing this.  It did have the feeling of clay.  Some of it has hardened pretty much, but it is still wet.  I think I used too much water.  Unfortunately, I didn't keep close track of the water added.  I'm thinking maybe 20 ounces, perhaps less.  The mixture started out too dry in my opinion, but changed dramatically to being too wet.  There may be a trick to mixing up this stuff.

I did keep close track of the sand added plus the Bentonite.  Relatively close, I should say.  Sloppy lab procedures again.

Just four weeks from today, I could be out there again.  The time is passing rather quickly, and I get the feeling I won't be ready, drat it.

If I am not mistaken, that was from Abraham Lincoln.

I think I have earned that right.  Anybody who complains about the blog has not earned the right to criticize it.

Elon Musk’s SpaceX Will Start Reusing Launch Vehicles Next Year

Cutting Costs | MIT Technology Review


Musk said he hopes to eventually send rockets to Mars (see “The Deferred Dreams of Mars”). But he admitted that the cost of space travel needs to come down by a factor of about 10,000
If he is successful with his reusable rockets, the cost will have gone down by a factor of 10.  Only a thousand more to go!

 Actually, if you were to reduce the mass that needs to be lifted, and then transported, you'll save more.  Thus, this milestone is just the beginning of what could be done.  People will look at the numbers, get discouraged, and say we should quit.  That'd be a mistake.


Groaning and a moaning

What a title to a post, huh?  There's so little time.  That's one thing I'm a moaning about constantly.  Yesterday, I got a call for a delivery at about the time for going home.  There wasn't any way out of it, I had to go clear across town at the worst possible hour.  By the time I got home, anything that I had planned just got deep sixed.

No friggin' time.

So, I'll just do a free form post about things in general for the rest of this post.  There's not time to organize myself and try to make something coherent.

One thing I'm noticing while driving around town is all of the construction.  We may have a construction boom going on in this town.  Hard to believe how much this town has grown and is still growing.  There's a spot I went to that I just mentioned above --- it was in the boonies in the nineties.  Now it is completely built up.  Insane growth.  I'm all for growth, but I hate the rat race aspect of it.

I have so little time, that my posting suffers and my stats suffer.  Sometimes I think, who the f**k cares?  If these people are so anxious to read my stuff, then why didn't they support me when I did it full time?  I don't have to spend so much time working and making money because nothing comes in from this blog.  Nothing.  Ever.  If I don't post something every day, they won't even come here.

As long as I was out, I stopped by a car lot where there was a vehicle that was up for sale.  I thought I might convert it to an RV.  It was a lot nicer than I thought, and they wanted too much for it.  So much for that idea.

I have a lot of ideas that don't seem to work.  Yet another one was to raise chinchillas.  The problem with any idea that might work is that a lot of people already have that idea!  Raising chinchillas seems like it ought to pay pretty good, but a little investigation shows that it doesn't really.  I'm suspecting a rigged game.  A chinchilla coat could go for $50k, but one lousy pelt goes for 20 bucks!?!  Sure, it takes a lot of pelts to make a coat, but not that many.  Something ain't adding up, ya'll.

I see that the butch dyke mayor has backtracked a little.   Maybe it's time for the GOP, but don't expect too much.  They are just as much to blame for this crap as the Democrats.  When I say crap, I don't necessarily mean that the GOP supports the butch dyke crowd.  No, they support some other crowd that is trying to screw you out of something.  You see, that's what it is all about today.  Somebody wants to screw you, so changing places and changing names doesn't make any difference.  They'll all screw you in one way or another anyway.

Barnhardt has a post up about the patron saint of lost causes.  Uh, she must be reading my mind.

After Ferguson, 'Dear White People' Arrives Right On Time

Free Republic

They've got a howler in that article:

But the most important moment in the film is when Samantha White, defines racism: “Black people can’t be racist, she says. “Prejudiced, yes, but not racist. Racism describes a systemic advantage based on race. Black people can’t be racists since we don’t stand to benefit from such a system.” --- prospect dot org

How do you get a black man in the white house, when blacks are about 13-15% of the population?  How can such a thing happen?  If a white man became president in a country where they represented such a minority of such a size, there'd be a howl of protest for the disparity and the obvious "racism".

We have a racial spoils system that is inherently racist.  The people who benefit from it are black people themselves, but there's also a social cost. For these people do not truly advance the black people's cause as a whole, but advances but a small portion of them.  The rest are being exploited to benefit a few.   That's how I see it.

I get the impression that the left really doesn't want the black people to be well educated.  They need an underclass for political agitation.  I'd even say they want black people to underachieve so that they can point at it as an example of "white privilege".

Blaming some outside force for your problems does nothing to help you solve yours.


Released Ebola Nurse Kaci Hickox Works For CDC…Her Lawyer Is A White House Visitor

Free Republic

Hickox was released from Ebola quarantine in Newark, N.J., Monday afternoon after the White House pressured New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to release the nurse that was working in Sierra Leone with Doctors Without Borders.

comment:

Her rights supercede the public interest, eh?  So, if she gets Ebola, she has the right to spread it around?

You know, I get the strong impression that the Democrat party is a nest of corruption.  But you'll never know about it because it is all kept pretty hush, hush.
