Titan's Goblet - a limerick

A Titan from south Albuquerque
Was a smart aleck, snide, rude and smirky
But when put on the spot
He honestly thought
A goblet was an under-aged turkey!

Posted by: Bicentennialguy at April 19, 2018 09:30 AM (zcSYk)

38 OK, here's where I call bullshit. The waterfalls are spectacular, but where do they come from? If they're going to keep falling from roughly lake level, or whatever we call how full the cup is, then they must be replenished.

There's obviously no room for a natural spring above them, so it has to be pumped up through the stem of the glass. And then you'd need some awfully sophisticated valve technology for Titan to pick it up and take a drink and pick the sailing ships out of his teeth and put it back down again and have the waterfalls still work.

I do not believe that that sort of valve technology existed back then.

Well, Jack has posited that the boats get scooped up when Titan scoops up a gobletfull from the lake. I'll accept that.

Then the question is whether the waterfalls are permanent. If they're constant then you need a source of water from below, which means massive pumps and some sort of advanced valve technology that allows the goblet to reconnect with the source the minute that Titan sets it down.

It is perhaps a simpler explanation that this polaroid was taken the minute that Titan set the glass down and the waterfalls are ephemeral.

This is a type of Romanticism that focused on fantasy themes and imagery. There might be a social commentary here about how humans, who think there are the apex of Creation and superior to all things, are actually puny and powerless compared to the unknown. That's up to you, though. Cole is more known for his romantic American landscapes, so this type of theme is unusual for him.This kinda reminds me of Goya's "Colossus", but Cole's painting has a more ambiguous mood: https://tinyurl.com/zsn6lpa Goya's may be an allegory of the French under Napoleon.

Look, if you're going to get caught up in minutia, let's discuss what the blazes this thing is made of. Assuming the larger boats are about 30', I'd estimate the 'lake' is about 1000 to 1200 feet wide. Anyone care to give a ballpark number for the mass of the water contained?

150 Well, Jack has posited that the boats get scooped up when Titan scoops up a gobletfull from the lake. I'll accept that.

Then the question is whether the waterfalls are permanent. If they're constant then you need a source of water from below, which means massive pumps and some sort of advanced valve technology that allows the goblet to reconnect with the source the minute that Titan sets it down.

It is perhaps a simpler explanation that this polaroid was taken the minute that Titan set the glass down and the waterfalls are ephemeral.

Posted by: Nevergiveup at April 19, 2018 09:54 AM (gtBZ4)


True story, a friend of mine was traveling overseas with a senior USG official. Since they both traveled a lot they were United Golden Executive card holders or something like that. On an overseas flight to Japan, once they got settled in, and in First Class of course, the stewardess came down the aisle and said to the USG type "Oh hi there Ms Smith, would you like your usual cocktail today?"

yeah, that is absurd. But imo a good approach to counter them may be to agree the young Hogg is brave and idealistic, (as most of us were till we spent time in the real world) ... but that youthful exuberance is easily misguided, and that the far left has used and abused these children.

Ingraham survived the attacks on her, but if she had attacked the leftists that push socialism/communism, but praised the 'activist' side of Hogg, she may have gotten better mileage. To call him whiny is "punching down", and down to a stupid kid no less.

Same with many of the useful idiots, just always scorn them as tools of the evil manipulators and anti-American globalists. To argue directly with the insane is to fight the smokescreen.

The target needs to be the ones refusing to yield to popular opinion ... close the border, tough on trade cheats (which is all of the other countries), push gun rights for protection, etc. We need to be the parent, those like Whoopi or Behar are the ignorant tools, it is "beneath us adults" to argue with their raw hate.

There's obviously no room for a natural spring above them, so it has to be pumped up through the stem of the glass. And then you'd need some awfully sophisticated valve technology for Titan to pick it up and take a drink and pick the sailing ships out of his teeth and put it back down again and have the waterfalls still work.

I do not believe that that sort of valve technology existed back then.

I wonder how much of all the disruption going on now is Politics lagging Technology.

Centralization made sense when we couldn't communicate as easily as we can now. But the Information Age has changed that ... making smaller, distributed cells more practical than ever. Yet - Government and Business seems to be fighting that evolution tooth and nail.

You don't want the tooth, because deep down in places you don't talk about on the ONT, you want me cleaning those teeth. You need me cleaning those teeth.

I know, right? Today they can use a Q-tip to poke their attacker in the eye, but tomorrow, nope.

Next they will outlaw dental floss so you can't accidentally strangle someone.

I will not indulge in any cheap shots such as maybe they've never heard of dental floss.

383 interesting interview with Michael Savage talking to his lawyer, who also happened to represent a former president of Ukraine, and had some interesting thoughts. One being on Sessions letting this attack on Trump's lawyer happen ... that Trump may need to purge these guys, that Obama changed who would fill the position if senate refused to approve someone new (Obama had changed it to a DC person, Trump back in 2017 changed it back to the Virginia ??? ... someone he appointed.

Sessions may be letting the Grassley work continue, and we have Huber at work ... but the RINOs (and it seems Sessions as well) want to replace Trump with Pence (a good globalist party man at heart). Public opinion is the last thing stopping them (DeepState/Establishment) from overruling the election.

448 Just reading the political news of the day and I see a consistent theme.

Trump won an election everyone thought he should lose, while GOPe politicos are losing elections everywhere that everyone think they should easily win.

And what is the political lesson the GOPe draws from these losses? "If only", McTurtle says, "more quasi-Democrats would run as Republicans, we might win!"

We are led by deeply stupid people. Corrupt, yes, but really dumb too.

Yes. On Tuesday. Big reveal was yesterday. Eye seems to be fine. I can see to drive, and also can read the PC screen with it, not using glasses. Have my reading glasses on for the other eye, and they actually make the vision from my right eye (the one done) blurry. I am going to buy a couple of pairs of dollar store readers, and make a pair with a strong lens on the left side, and a weak one on the right.
With my regular contact lens in the left side, I can see fine to drive. Go in for the left side surgery in June. Procedure took about 15 minutes, done under local anaesthetic. Not painful.
