Overnight Open Thread (1-31-2016)

Quote of the Day

In the last ten thousand years - an instant in our long history - we've abandoned the nomadic life. We've domesticated the plants and animals. Why chase the food when you can make it come to you?For all its material advantages, the sedentary life has left us edgy, unfulfilled. Even after 400 generations in villages and cities, we haven't forgotten. The open road still softly calls, like a nearly forgotten song of childhood. We invest far-off places with a certain romance. This appeal, I suspect, has been meticulously crafted by natural selection as an essential element in our survival. Long summers, mild winters, rich harvests, plentiful game - none of them lasts forever. It is beyond our powers to predict the future. Catastrophic events have a way of sneaking up on us, of catching us unaware. Your own life, or your band's, or even your species' might be owed to a restless few-drawn, by a craving they can hardly articulate or understand, to undiscovered lands and new worlds.

Herman Melville, in Moby Dick, spoke for wanderers in all epochs and meridians: "I am tormented with an everlasting itch for things remote. I love to sail forbidden seas..."

Maybe it's a little early. Maybe the time is not quite yet. But those other worlds - promising untold opportunities - beckon. Silently, they orbit the Sun, waiting.

-- Carl Sagan

European Refugee Roundup:

EU Leaders Insist There is 'NO LINK' Between the Migrant Crisis and New Year Sex Attacks in Cologne

Minutes state: 'As far as the crimes in Cologne were concerned, he [Timmermans] said that these were a matter of public order and were not related to the refugee crisis.'

They also suggest officials want 'the unconditional rejection of false associations between certain criminal acts, such as the attacks on women in Cologne on New Year's Eve, and the mass influx of refugees'.

But the officials simultaneously do not want to 'downplay' the problems.

No doubt that they're part of some unsavory group but this is exactly what you get when political leaders abdicate their most basic responsibility: protecting the people they claim to represent. Based on the paths of other countries if these legitimate safety concerns are left unaddressed, you will eventually start seeing the appearance of death squads either with the tacit approval of local police or drawn from the police themselves. Note that this is all foreseeable. And avoidable.

The Naked Truth: On Nude Statues and Civilization

Renaissance thinkers blended Classical ideas with Christian thinking: man could be seen not as just a fallen creature in a vale of tears but as the foremost of God's creations, whose good in this life was important to the Almighty.

Art helps make these otherwise high-minded notions into something publicly accessible. When the Florentines put Michelangelo's monumental, nude David in the center of their city in 1504, it said something important in a way that even an illiterate manual laborer could understand. Later, the Florentine sculptor would design the buildings of the modern Capitoline to house a collection that Pope Sixtus IV had donated to the people of Rome;in 1734, Pope Clementine XII would declare the Capitoline open to the general populace, making it the world's first public art museum.

Humanism, moderation, an appreciation for our common humanity, and the humane treatment of even those we disagree with on matters of the highest import-so much of what separates us from Iran's brutal regime is on display to anyone walking through the Capitoline museum.

Note that as a married man of nearly 50 years and a former member of the military Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is no doubt quite familiar with the naked female and male forms.

Bernie Sanders: The Incompetent Bum Who Wants Your Money

It wasn't as bad as he says. His family managed to send him to the University of Chicago. Despite a prestigious degree, however, Sanders failed to earn a living, even as an adult. It took him 40 years to collect his first steady paycheck - and it was a government check.

"I never had any money my entire life," Sanders told Vermont public TV in 1985, after settling into his first real job as mayor of Burlington. . . .

Sanders took his first bride to live in a maple sugar shack with a dirt floor, and she soon left him. Penniless, he went on unemployment. Then he had a child out of wedlock. Desperate, he tried carpentry but could barely sink a nail. "He was a shi**y carpenter," a friend told Politico Magazine. "His carpentry was not going to support him, and didn't."

Then he tried his hand freelancing for leftist rags, writing about "masturbation and rape" and other crudities for $50 a story. He drove around in a rusted-out, Bondo-covered VW bug with no working windshield wipers. Friends said he was "always poor" and his "electricity was turned off a lot." They described him as a slob who kept a messy apartment - and this is what his friends had to say about him.

The only thing he was good at was talking...non-stop...about socialism and how the rich were ripping everybody off. "The whole quality of life in America is based on greed," the bitter layabout said. "I believe in the redistribution of wealth in this nation."

So he tried politics.

NFL Player Just Accepted to the Math PhD Program at MIT

Baltimore Ravens player John Urschel may have to juggle his spring training schedule a bit to fit into MIT's class schedule.

The 6'3", 305-pound offensive lineman will begin a PhD in mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology this year. The Hulk-like math geek, who graduated from Penn State with a 4.0 grade point average, will study spectral graph theory, numerical linear algebra, and machine learning.

...In 2015, Urschel played in the NFL playoffs for the Ravens while simultaneously (pdf) working on a paper on graph eigenfunctions. (What have you done lately?) The paper, entitled, "A Cascadic Multigrid Algorithm for Computing the Fielder Vector of Graph Laplacians," is available online.

Here Urschel explains why he plays professional football when he regards himself as a mathematician:

"What my mother and a great majority of my friends, family, and fellow mathematicians don't understand is that I'm not playing for the money," he wrote. "I'm not playing for some social status associated with being an elite athlete."

"I play because I love the game. I love hitting people."

Iran's "women's" soccer team was caught with 8 male players fairly recently. It helps that they wear burka-like uniforms that cover everything but the face and hands. But even if they've had the surgery men have a physical advantage - see stories about MMA fighter Fallon Fox.

This is exactly the dose of reality (dare we call it "science!"?) the gender-fluid is a real thing crowd deserves.

There is another element here to note as well - this is collective punishment.

Well the modern west rejects collective punishment and retaliation, there is little question that it works...which is why you see it in most (all?) pre-civilized countries for "policing" and even in most modern countries in war.

Certainly, using Europe's anemic policing model, presuming they do (instead of what we saw in Rotterdam for example), will not have any notable effect on the Islamic invaders.

I'm not endorsing collective punishment here - I think the clear, humane, answer is to send them home. But if Europe won't do that, then you will have escalating conflict between the invaders and the people of Europe until one side wins...and it will only get more and more violent until that point.

140 otho, I had heard the new X-Files was going all-in on hatred against conservatives. True? False?



Posted by: qdpsteve at January 31, 2016 11:48 PM


Hmmmm... not really. Not as of episode 1, anyway. I would have rolled my eyes and been ticked off if they did. No, there was some slagging off of conservatives... but... and this is just how I interpreted it, knowing the characters... it was Mulder being Mulder... He is rather often portrayed, rightfully, as a tool, a blowhard, an opinionated dickhead, who let's his idiot ideas get out of hand. At this stage (ep 1), it's all rather even handed... in the sense you don't know whether the con guy is up to no good, or whether Mulder is full of shit... and he often is. Dunno, maybe it goes all libtard later? I hope not. X-Files was always a bit out there, but it didn't strive to piss people off. Mind you it's heyday was pre Bush... so, maybe. But right now, it's all good.

143 121: The most beautiful formulation of EM theory is the 4-vector and tensor form. It's absolutely beautiful and succinct. Unfortunately, they don't teach it except in higher physics, after special relativity is mastered.

There, the notion of E and B (H I prefer to say because of symmetry reasons too boring to go on) as separate vector fields. They become one tensor field, the Faraday Tensor, or just the EM field tensor. There, you appreciate that both fields are actually one thing, and what one calls electric and magnetic are just mostly a coordinate artifact.

However, in the general case it is impossible to completely transform away one field. But, nonetheless they participate in a dance, and in the tensor and 4-vector formulation, that dance becomes one tensor field.

One of the best bits of wisdom I've repeatedly handed out to STEM students -- if you're supposed to take Calculus 3A-B-C in the first year with Physics 10A-B-C....stagger it so you take the math first. Take Calc 3A and defer the physics; then take Calc 3B with Phys 10A; Calc 3C with Phys 10B; and take Phys 10C next year with differential equations.

It will vastly improve your comfort level, your stress level, your understanding of the subject, and your GPA -- and, because of the way prereq's are structured, it won't slow you down by any appreciable amount.

Eh... I could live with it. The episode wasn't "filled with it", there were a couple of digs, that I recall... but that's in character with Mulder and Scully, really. Also, it's not like the con media guy is obviously wrong. M and S have their digs and he makes his marks, too. When that stuff started, I was thinking "oh FFS, is it gonna be like this?".... but it kept things a mystery. I know, as a long time viewer, that M and S aren't always right. They can be boneheads.

For example, take the calculus of variations. It was Hamilton's Principle of Least Action that just gave me one of those moments where the theme from 2001 plays in your head, and you've realized you've learned something very deep. That motivated me to learn variational calculus.

It should be noted that "FOB" in accounting-speak is when goods legally cease to be one person's problem and begin to be another's. So, if you're an exporter in China and your goods are "FOB Shanghai dock", you [theoretically] still get paid when your goods are loaded even if the ship sinks while still moored to the dock. Or even if a forklift driver misses the crane to load your goods and pushes 'em off the edge of the dock. You successfully delivered them to the FOB point, and everything from there is NOT. YOUR.

216 It's not an instant, but it's just 2 years out of your life, relatively speaking.

Posted by: publius (not Breitbart publius) at February 01, 2016 12:17 AM (dvuhZ)


2 years is a lot of time out of ones life. And Sagan was talking about 10,000 years which comes out to 4 years in your analogy, which is a very serious amount of someone's life.

The fact is that either Sagan was confused or was trying to push something to make recorded history seem like an insignificant piece of human history. He also glossed over the power of exponential growth which accompanied those last 10,000 years, when the number of humans on Earth dwarfed those of the past.

Clearly, humans love exploration and discovery but Sagan seems to have no clue why and his explanation was sort of stupid.

172: A problem with that is motivation. If you're just thrown this fancy
razzle dazzle math out without appreciating what you can do with it, it
can be hard to get motivated to learn. By seeing how that math serves
physics, it can be motivating.

For example, take the calculus
of variations. It was Hamilton's Principle of Least Action that just
gave me one of those moments where the theme from 2001 plays in your
head, and you've realized you've learned something very deep. That
motivated me to learn variational calculus.

See Feynman's famour derivation of Schrodinger's wave equation from variational principles, for instance.

It wouldn't be a problem past the first quarter. When they saw all their Physics classmates stumped at trying to describe something when they already had the math for it, they'd realize that much of their physics coursework was dumbed-down and explained backwards in order to not outrun the math that the students were expected to know. If you already know the math, you can learn physics forwards -- simpler, and easier.

It should be noted that "FOB" in accounting-speak is when goods legally
cease to be one person's problem and begin to be another's. So, if
you're an exporter in China and your goods are "FOB Shanghai dock", you
[theoretically] still get paid when your goods are loaded even if the
ship sinks while still moored to the dock. Or even if a forklift driver
misses the crane to load your goods and pushes 'em off the edge of the
dock. You successfully delivered them to the FOB point, and everything
from there is NOT. YOUR. PROBLEM.

So which is it?

1. The best, brightest, and most ambitious go out and colonize new regions, leaving the average folks back in the relative comfort of the old country/planet.

2. The normal people push the misfits out of their well-ordered society, forcing them to go out and colonize new countries/planets.

I think it's a little of both. I also think that a frontier is necessary to keep ideas of individual liberty alive. A settled society tends towards conformity.

True. I had to slap a presentation together about chemical equilibrium but couldn't assume people knew calculus, so I had to keep it simple.

I compared two college into chemistry textbooks. One from 20 years ago, and another originally written in the '40's by Linus Pauling. The former did not use calculus and was at times hard to follow. Pauling's book did use calculus and was rather straight forward.

This is why I try to pick up older text books whenever I visit used book stores.

Re: Your imbedded YouTubes

I run Opera browser with javascript and plug-ins off.

On every other site, and on all AoS posts except yours, imbedded YouTubes show up with a black square and a "something's wrong" message, but that has a link to YouTube which I can copy for downloading the video. (I prefer to download than live stream because my own reasons, ok?)

On your embeds, though, I get an empty space. I have to turn on javascript and plug-ins, re-load the page, and then start playing the video before I can get the YouTube URL for copying. Then turn off settings again.

I've looked at the source code and darned if I can figure out how it even works (some script) but yours are different than anybody else's.

Maybe it's easier for you this way but it's just one more annoying technical hurdle and hassle for me.

Just my problem, I suppose, and not yours and maybe nobody else's. But FTR.

I'm kind of agnostic on that subject. You could say that Clyde Tombaugh discovered the ninth planet in 1930, or you could say that he discovered the first of an entirely new class of objects, about 60 years before the next one was found. Today we know of hundreds at least, and we've only found the larger ones. There are probably millions of smaller ones.

Whatever you want to call Pluto, it doesn't diminish Tombaugh's achievement in the slightest.

276 My son's hockey team is all boys, finally. He is nine, and he doesn't have to have girls on board.

But, they have to play against 12 year old girls. Some of whom need the exercise in the worst way. Some of those girls outweigh my son by about double. They are fat and slow but they are bullies because they can bodyslam and get away with it.

No crosschecking allowed at this level, but the girls just butt into them with their bulk.

It's the greatest load of crap I've ever seen in sports. Teaches the girls to be fat and slow, and the boys to hate playing games.

They do much better when they play their actual peers.

When I was that age (get off my lawn!), girls played broomball. It was fast and mean and without pads. We weren't allowed to play hockey with all the pads and protections because we might get hurt. I never got that. I always came home bloody and bruised and loved every minute of it.

285 There is a major accounting issue hidden underneath FOB terms. A lot of companies use terms of FOB shipping point to determine when a sale is made.....while the real world insists that the customer doesn't owe for the goods until they've been delivered.



So the point where they're stacked on the dock to the point where a customer signs for 'em is a grey area.....where both are likely to say "sue FedEx; sue UPS" -- even though the law clearly states that the FOB point controls.

316 No doubt that they're part of some unsavory group

I doubt it. There's nothing "unsavory" about defending yourself, your family, friends and countrymen when your own government has, as is noted, actively doubled down in acting against you.

Sweden has entered the Burning Times, and we can't judge them by the same standards as societies that haven't. The migrants may technically be there "legally", but they are not there legitimately. They are all therefore fair game for the citizenry to repel, until they are gone one way or another.

To see this more clearly, think about the government confiscation of houses to give to the migrants. This is done by elected officials and is "legal" in that sense, but does the homeowner have the moral right to use deadly force against the migrants in his own house, until it is free of them? Of course. Hopefully, before that point, they will "self deport".


The really stunning thing is how adamant all these European governments are in their will to destroy their own people. Is Soros bribing them all? Are they all clones of Barack Obama?

318 We don't deal with it. We leave them behind when it hits the fan. They are going to be much too heavy to carry, and if they don't have some redeeming value that offsets the stupid by a vast margin, it's just not going to be worth it attempting to save them. Maybe we can work them until they drop or something.

320 @317, @318 is correct. That sort will be angrily lashing out against us, while gazing adoringly into the eyes of the "refugees", even as those refugees are in the act of beheading him. There is nothing that can be done. They love their narrative more than reality, more than their fellow human beings, more than life itself.

Good morning. I guess we turn it on them. "So you think the women are LYING? What's with your war on women? Why do you think female reporters are lying in addition to female victims? Do you think slave women were ever raped, or was that right-wing exaggeration? Because Democrats were the ones who supported slavery, you know. Is that what you're doing AGAIN?"

What's odd is, there's plenty of video out there of these attacks. There's one youtube in particular -- I think it was shown around here -- that a woman took herself while she's trying to ward off three of these animals. Ask what if that was three white Republicans attacking a Black woman in a subway. Would it be newsworthy?
Eh, not that that will do anything.

336 Europe in the Middle Ages used to have sects of "flagellents", whipping themselves to mortify their flesh as a kind of spiritual exercise. Maybe the desire for Muslim immigration comes from the same impulse. It would be too easy to accept Christian refugees. For a real challenge, they must seek out the most violent, callous, unsanitary, primitive people of all. If you are capable of loving the unlovable, tolerating the intolerable, you must have achieved a very advanced spiritual state indeed. It proves how much more enlightened and compassionate they are than their fellow westerners. It allows them to forgive themselves for the sin/privilege of being more civilized and humane than those they are importing.
