I like my dog with chili and cheese.
The year was 1972 in Wheeling WV. at Triadelphia High School. I salvaged a transformer out of an old tube tester that I stripped for parts and I had it in a bag on top of my locker. Some stupid teacher freaked out and called it in that there was a bomb in the building. The school was evacuated and the fire department determined it was not a bomb.
Unlike today I wasn’t arrested because the teacher had made a mistake. They only arrested people back then who made real bombs. And I’m not a Muslim just to make the point that this happens to white Jewish kids too. The problem is that often students that are much smarter than teachers struggle in school. So Ahmed Mohamed – I feel your pain for being arrested for building a clock.
If this happened today I probably would have been arrested too. School is all about what’s good for the teachers and students are just an prop to get more school funding. If you took a smart kid who wants to learn and gave him/her a computer and let them self educate watching YouTube they would get a far better education than they are getting in schools.
The above picture is me in 1973 winning a prize at a science fair. The device is a computer I designed made from pin ball machine relays that figured out the day of the week of any date. And I designed it from scratch with no education in electronics.
IRVING — The family of a 14-year-old Irving student arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school earlier this month has retained lawyers and is seeking to regain his science project from the Irving Police Department.
Ahmed Mohamed’s parents say they’ve un-enrolled their three children from the Irving School District “because of religious persecution” and have decided to home-school them. Mohamed’s arrest made national headlines, prompting invites from the White House, Facebook and other tech companies. “The family says that Ahmed has been severely traumatized. The family wants justice and to ensure no family will ever have to experience what Ahmed went through again,” a press release sent Wednesday stated.
Analyze this. Keep in mind the pressure on her concerning the Fed’s decision whether or not to raise interest rates last week.
On The Late Show he told Colbert that the “fast way” to warm up Mars is the nuke the poles. It’s actually not a bad idea. The idea is the there’s frozen carbon dioxide at the poles (dry ice) and if you release it then it will cause some global warming. Then you might get the equator above freezing long enough to support some plant life. Probably something genetically engineered to grow on Mars.
Also a thicker atmosphere might allow more protection fro meteors. On Earth they burn up in the atmosphere but on Mars the atmosphere is so thin that less burn up. So more is better.
I wonder if you could build aircraft that would work on Mars. Certainly more atmosphere would help with that.
A hydrogen bomb is what you need. More energy and almost no residual radiation. And you can get the hydrogen from the frozen water.
A few days ago I walk into a local marijuana club in San Jose. I have a prescription to treat depression. I told the doctor that running out of pot causes me to be depressed and that getting pot cures it. So the first thing I notice is:
We no longer accept credit cards or debit cards. (Directions to nearest ATM machine)
So I asked, “What’s that all about?” And it turns out that because marijuana is still federally illegal that the DEA just comes into the bank and cleans out all their money. And we talked for some time about it. They said this kind of thing never happened under Bush.
So if Obama is such a liberal then why is he harassing pot clubs while at the same time his justice department has yet to prosecute any of the 2008 bankers who stole trillions of dollars?
As someone who voted for Obama twice it turns out he’s the second worst president ever. And a lot more of a disappointment than Bush because of my higher expectations.
I was thinking about writing a long detailed article about Hillary’s email but I think instead I’m going to do a series of shorter posts to match the attention spam of the average modern “journalist”.
So – now that I’ve insulted the press – let’s get started.
Let’s assume for the moment that somehow having your own server for Secretary of State business is somehow acceptable – which it isn’t – then – why not have 2 separate accounts on your own server?
firstname.lastname@example.org – personal
email@example.com – business
If she had merely created 2 separate email accounts on her own server then if she was going to delete 30,000 emails on her personal account then it wouldn’t look as bad as deleting them from one account. And if Congress subpoenaed her SOS account they wouldn’t get her personal email. That would take a second separate subpoena and it’s unlikely they would get that.
Just like people have separate bank accounts for personal and business people have separate email accounts for personal and business. And anyone who can’t figure that out isn’t qualified to be POTUS. After 2 stupid presidents in a row I think America deserves a president who can at least manage email.
And – what the hell is this?
I thought that server wasn’t up anymore. And even though it’s https – it’s not encrypted! WTF!
Look for more articles over the next few days. There’s a lot more where this came from. A LOT more.
Sounding very much like a candidate for president, today Vice President Joe Biden spoke at an AFL-CIO Labor Day event in Pittsburgh, Pa. “I’m mad, I’m angry,” Biden thundered, attacking the U.S. economy as “devastating for workers.”
Biden, who is openly considering running against Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary, thanked “my friend” Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO. ”
“There wouldn’t be a single basic right, from a 40-hour week to sick leave, there wouldn’t a single basic right out there … but for labor,” Biden said. “You build the middle class. That’s not an exaggeration.”
The vice president also attacked growing inequality.
“Let me tell you something, man,” Biden said. “The tax code’s not fair. The wealthy aren’t paying their fair share.”
Yup, Elect Joe, he will fix it…..for real this time.
This is NOT the Large Hadron Collider and the scientific staff of CERN
Bad news, citizens of Earth: those evil physicists at CERN are once again hellbent on vaporizing the Earth and ending the universe as we know it as the Large Hadron Collider ramps up to unprecedented energies. That’s according to Lonnie Robinson, intrepid correspondent/prophet of doom for The Daily Reporter in Coldwater, Michigan, who sees the signs of our imminent destruction everywhere he looks (including The Simpsons). He even pegs the specific day on which we can probably expect global annihilation: September 24, 2015.
The good news: Lonnie Robinson is full of shit.
And so I do what I always do, I go to YouTube for some proper DIY advice.
Seems pretty clear. She is entitled to her beliefs and opinions, but if, as a public official, she can’t or won’t, for whatever reason, perform the duties for which she was elected, she shouldn’t be in that office. Religion isn’t the issue. That’s just her excuse. Performance of duties is. By flouting the law and the court, she got what she deserved.
A federal judge has ordered a Kentucky county clerk to jail Thursday after she repeatedly refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
U.S. District Judge David Bunning said Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis would remain in the custody of U.S. Marshals until she complied with court orders to issue the licenses. Bunning said fines weren’t enough to compel Davis, who has remained defiant in the face of the Supreme Court’s decision in June to legalize same-sex marriage, Ryland Barton of Kentucky Public Radio reported.
Bunning told Davis that while public officials may have their own religious beliefs, they still must respect the law, Blue Grass Politics tweeted.
It’s the end of the world I tells ya!
