This is the car I had. 2012 Honda CR-V EX AWD. Insurance has decided it totaled. 2 weeks ago someone rear ended me. So – I’m looking for advice about how to get the most money out of them.

I’ve been a little sore since the accident. I think I’m going to get over it. But when I get on the treadmill I have some abdominal pain in the seat belt area. But not looking to gouge them but this pain and inconvenience is worth something.

Also – needing to buy a new car. This was my 3rd Honda CR-V and i Really liked this car. Considering the new HR-V which is a little smaller. Also open to other cars brands so looking for suggestions.


Since Iowa divides up their delegates proportionally rather than “winner take all” I’m going to call it as it is. What we are seeing is a 3 way tie on the Republican side with bragging rights going to Cruz, and a 2 way tie for the Democrats with bragging rights going to Clinton.

The Scores:

Cruz – 8 * Trump – 7 * Rubio – 7 * Carson – 3 * Paul – 1 * Bush – 1

Clinton – 24 * Sanders – 21

Big day for Cruz beating trump barely and Rubio in there for a close 3rd place. The rest of them are like the walking dead at this point which includes Bush. But I think it was a great day for Sanders as the underdog candidate showing that he’s competitive with Clinton. I also think Trump showed that real people do vote for him, and Rubio also established himself as competitive. Clinton lost to Obama 8 years ago and this was a must win for her and she did so.

These numbers might change as more results come in. These are CNN numbers.

A while back I said that I had made a breakthrough in spam filtering and that I filed a provisional patent on my new method. I’m now ready to reveal how it works. I’m calling it the Evolution Filter. You can read a detailed explanation here.

Basically, if you are talking about things that are said in ordinary email and it’s things that spammers never say, it’s good email. And if you are talking about things that only spammers say, it’s spam.

Most spam filters are based on matching things. Bayesian filters compare the message to known ham and spam. Or you are matching rules. This filter is based on NOT MATCHING. We match ham and not match spam to test for ham. We match spam and not match ham to test for spam.

The advantage to not matching is that I’m comparing to an infinite set rather than a finite set. Or comparing to the unknown rather than the known.

I’m getting really close to 100% accuracy and there’s room to improve it. This doesn’t just stop spam, it decimates it. Read my article and your see how I do it.

Also – this is NOT BAYESIAN. I know what Bayesian is. I have Bayesian with SpamAssassin. This is not the same thing. In fact – it’s not even similar.


CBS2’s Randy Paige reports that many officers believe there aren’t enough of them to go around — especially in an emergency.

“The citizens need to know they need to be able to protect themselves because if they call 911, we can’t guarantee we’re going to get there in time to help you,” says Police Protective League President Jamie McBride.

He told Paige that Thursday morning between 5:30 and 10 a.m., there were just three patrol cars assigned to the West LA division. Two cars to protect more than 200,000 people in a 65 square mile radius.

Seems to be a common theme these days. I read this while listening to Hillary drone on about gun control whilst surrounded by Secret Service agents. Maybe you should just get a Rottweiler or two.

The solar system appears to have a new ninth planet. Today, two scientists announced evidence that a body nearly the size of Neptune—but as yet unseen—orbits the sun every 15,000 years. During the solar system’s infancy 4.5 billion years ago, they say, the giant planet was knocked out of the planet-forming region near the sun. Slowed down by gas, the planet settled into a distant elliptical orbit, where it still lurks today. The new evidence comes from a pair of respected planetary scientists, Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, who prepared for the inevitable skepticism with detailed analyses of the orbits of other distant objects and months of computer simulations.

Outside scientists say their calculations stack up and express a mixture of caution and excitement about the result. “I could not imagine a bigger deal if—and of course that’s a boldface ‘if’—if it turns out to be right,” says Gregory Laughlin, a planetary scientist at the University of California (UC), Santa Cruz. “What’s thrilling about it is [the planet] is detectable.”

NASA Weighs in.

With all my Star Trek coverage lately it’s good to get a look at the real thing. This is from NASA.


If someone told me last week that there was a Start Trek series I never heard of I would have said, no way! If they told me there were 2 Star Trek Series you never heard of I would have said, Impossible! As it turns out there are 3 Star Trek series that I never heard of. This one is called Axanar. It’s about a 4 year war with the Klingons. It’s another prequel to TOS. I will leave the commenting up to you. So here’s the new Trek list:

  1. Star Trek New Voyages
  2. Star Trek Continues
  3. Axanar

Star Trek isn’t just a TV show. Star Trek is a vision of the future. It’s Gene Roddenberry’s vision about our future evolution. a vision that humanity progress, move out into the universe, and to boldly go where no one has gone before. And it’s great to see that this vision of the future is so compelling that Star Trek fans have gone where no fans have gone before to not wait for the commercial powers but to make, not 1 but 3 new series.


Leonardo DiCaprio flew by private jet to the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland to attack the “greed” of the energy industry, while demanding more action on climate change.

In a speech to world leaders, business chiefs, and campaigners, DiCaprio called for more action in the battle against global warming and called out the energy industry for denying the problem. Fossil fuels, he insisted, must be kept in the ground to avoid catastrophic climate change. “We simply cannot afford to allow the corporate greed of the coal, oil and gas industries to determine the future of humanity,” DiCaprio explained. “Those entities with a financial interest in preserving this destructive system have denied, and even covered up the evidence of our changing climate… Enough is enough. You know better. The world knows better. History will place the blame for this devastation squarely at their feet.

Longtime listeners of the No Agenda Podcast will recall that the number 33 is mentioned quite often and that it seems to be some kind of code when the figure appears printed media or mentioned in any other type of media. Sadly, this will not provide any further explanation as to why this happens. The video is offered just as an interesting fact about this recurring number.

I could use some advice so I thought I would turn to all the wise people who leave all the great comments on this blog whenever I post interesting stuff. And this isn’t even about Elon!


Germany needs to ban alcohol if it wants to prevent further sexual violence and to help North African migrants integrate into society, a Muslim pressure group has claimed.

Commenting on the Cologne sex-attack controversy, MuslimStern, which has 20,000 followers on Facebook, said its mission was to ‘highlight the way the media was using the incidents to promote racism against minorities’.

The group complained that the female victims had brought the unwanted attention to themselves by dressing in a manner that North African men were not accustomed to. The group claimed: ‘You cannot expect to chuck a naked antelope in front of a lion and not expect it to react. It is mind boggling that with so much time spent teaching children about sex at school, they completely forget to pass on this basic biological fact.’

As a consequence of the attacks, they urged the German government to introduce a ban across the country on the consumption of alcohol.

I jst found this today after a friend of mine called me about it. This is a new Star Trek series called Star Trek New Voyages produced by Star Trek fans of the original series. I watched the first one and this is surprisingly good. I’m told by my friend that it gets better as they progress. The first one was better than most of the original series. If you are into Trek as I am, especially the original series you are going to want to watch this.

There is no winner yet by my standards because the winner (in my opinion) has to deliver something to orbit twice. However, in the “who’s ahead right now” class, I have to give it to Bezos. Reusability means twice or more and Blue Origin beat SpaceX by doing it twice. Nice accomplishment!

SpaceX Dragon 2 hover test. So cool! For nerds this is like porn!
