The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“The fundamental starting point is, yes, we’ve bought the wrong satellites,” Dr Bleddyn Bowen, a space policy expert at the University of Leicester


Quote II

“Centuries of institutionalized oppression will not be undone overnight, for racism in America is as structural as the marble pillars of this very institution,” the Democrat added. “With the power of the pen we must legislate accountability, dismantle these systems, and move in the direction of justice and healing. The Justice in Policing Act is a critical step forward, and I applaud the leadership of the Congressional Black Caucus.”Rep. Ayanna Presley (D-MA)


Quote III

Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio could have just as easily discouraged protests, short of condemning their message, in the name of public health and exercised discretion to suspend enforcement for public safety reasons instead of encouraging what they knew was a flagrant disregard of the outdoor limits and social distancing rules. They could have also been silent. But by acting as they did, Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio sent a clear message that mass protests are deserving of preferential treatment.U.S. District Judge Gary L. Sharpe


Quote IV

“They believe that in this current moment, the chaos that surrounds us is signaling the potential for an impending second civil war which, believe it or not, they are hoping for because they believe that will rid the United States of all its problems,”Devin Burghart, executive director of the National Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights.

Politicians, from the lowest level to upper echelons only care about themselves.

Several Minneapolis City Council members who have received death threats following their calls to defund the police after the death of George Floyd have been assigned private security details -- reportedly costing the city $4,500 a day in taxpayer dollars.


According to information obtained by Fox News, the city has spent $63,000 on private security over the last three weeks.

“The names of the people getting security details are not public,” a city spokesperson told Fox News Saturday.

The names of three council members who are receiving private security detail have already been made public, two of whom interviewed with local affiliate Fox 9 on Friday. The spokesperson did not respond to Fox News' questions about whether or not there were additional council members receiving security detail

Fireworks are Booming, Earlier and Louder Than Ever
For reasons nobody quite understands, fireworks are everywhere.
By Lloyd Alter
Updated June 26, 2020

I will state this up front: I hate fireworks. They are loud and they are dangerous and they are polluting and they scare my dogs and my kids and me. This year, I hate them more than ever; for reasons nobody quite understands, they are ubiquitous weeks before the Fourth of July. According to Gothamist, noise complaints related to fireworks in New York City are up a crazy 4,000% over last year. But it’s not just New York; according to the Associated Press, “They’ve become a nightly nuisance ringing out from Connecticut to California, angering sleep-deprived residents and alarming elected officials.”

Don't self-identify as Lloyd.

Yes, CNN is f*cking fake and distorted news. They do not make any effort at hiding their disdain of President Trump.

Seriously can’t even BELIEVE that WaPo tried to get away with this headline on dangerous Democrat-controlled cities


Yeah look I know that headline isn’t very informative but I am stunned. Shook as they say on Twitter. You think the media can’t possibly surprise you anymore and then they do … this.

I still can’t believe it as I’m typing it. “Trump keeps claiming that the most dangerous cities in America are all run by Democrats. They aren’t,” reads the headline. It’s an “analysis” article. The headline is conveys a big GOTCHA point, right? Trump the liar keeps claiming that crime-filled cities are a democrat problem but that’s a big fat lie!!!!!!

It’s a lie and here’s our PROOF!!!

Practice makes perfect. Or does it?

In 1993, Swedish psychologist K. Anders Ericsson set out to find the secret to turning a typical teen into a violin virtuoso. His answer? Practice: 10,000 hours of it. The figure, a simple average of a few prodigies’ regimens, stuck; journalist and author Malcolm Gladwell even dubbed it “the magic number of greatness” in his 2008 book Outliers.

The concept of ”practice makes perfect” has been drilled into the heads of ambitious youths since the Roman Empire. Anyone can be the next LeBron James, Yo-Yo Ma, or Celine Dion as long as they can devote enough time to honing their craft. But can it be that simple? Not every expert agrees. While training is essential to learning, spending a chunk of your life trying something over and over doesn’t mean you’ll go pro, says Zach Hambrick, a psychologist at Michigan State University.

You don't need to wear no stinkin' mask. And the exemption card isn't going to work.

The Department of Justice is now warning that a card circulating online is falsely claiming its holder is lawfully exempt from wearing a mask.

A recently issued alert by the department is urging the public not to heed information printed on the fraudulent cards, which purport to carry the authority of the "Freedom to Breathe Agency," which is neither a federal nor a state agency.

The fake card states that wearing a mask will incur mental or physical risk for the holder. The card also posits that the Americans with Disabilities Act forbids raising questions about the health condition aggravated by mask usage. Penalties are threatened if a business owner does not act accordingly.

"If found in violation of the ADA you could face steep penalties. Organizations and businesses can be fined up to $75,000 for your first violation and $150,000 for any subsequent violations. Denying access to your business/organization will be also reported to FTBA for further actions," the card reads, according to images that have been posted online.

The ONT Musical Interlude

The Zappa requests keep coming....................


June 27, 1966 - Frank Zappa
The Mothers of Invention released their debut studio album Freak Out! on Verve Records. Often cited as one of rock music's first concept albums, the album is a satirical expression of frontman Frank Zappa's perception of American pop culture and the nascent freak scene of Los Angeles. It was also one of the earliest double albums in rock music. via thisdayinmusic.com



On this day: 28 Jun 1975
American singer songwriter Tim Buckley completed the last show of a tour in Dallas, Texas, playing to a sold-out crowd of 1,800 people. This was Buckley's last ever show, he died the following day of a heroin and morphine overdose aged 28. via thisdayinmusic.com

&&&&&


Yesterday on that day: 2002 - John Entwistle
One day before the scheduled first show of The Who's 2002 US tour, bass player John Entwistle, died aged 57 in his hotel room at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Entwistle had gone to bed that night with a stripper, who woke at 10am to find Entwistle cold and unresponsive. The Las Vegas medical examiner determined that death was due to a heart attack induced by an undetermined amount of cocaine. via thisdayinmusic.com

I'm not a doctor, don't play one on TV and didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. So I don't know if this board member has problems or is a Genius Award Winner.

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Parents are outraged after seeing a school board member for Western Heights in Oklahoma City drink a beer during a recent meeting.

Many parents are now questioning every decision she’s made and others are calling for her resignation.

“She’s voting on stuff that has to do with a bunch of money and has to do with our students and has to do with the community,” Western Heights Parent Brianna Dodd told KFOR. “She could possibly be highly intoxicated.”

On Thursday night, board member Linda Farley made a motion, then, while President Robert Everman was calling for a second to the motion, you could see Farley take a sip from a Corona Extra bottle.

And Western Heights Parent Brianna Karen Dodd could possibly be attractive and fun to be around. However, it is highly unlikely. See a Cob can use her flawed logic.

Until the Food Police shut her down, Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day

After Michelle Brenner was furloughed from her job at a menswear store in Gig Harbor, Wash, she decided to make herself a huge pan of lasagna. Then she got on her community Facebook page and wrote that frozen, store-bought lasagna could not compare to the real Italian homemade deal.

She followed up with an offer: "If any of you want some fresh homemade, no calorie counting lasagna, please let me know and I will gladly prepare it."

Brenner set aside her $1,200 stimulus check to buy ingredients, and the requests began to trickle in. First from a retired neighbor, then an out-of-work friend. Soon, many people started showing up, including strangers.

Nearly three months and more than 1,000 pans later, Brenner is still at it. About eight hours a day, seven days a week, she helps feed people in her community - from hospital workers and first responders to single parents struggling without paychecks.

The FBI has launched an investigation after a piece of rope resembling a noose was found in the locker of a Black firefighter in a suburb of Minneapolis.

"A piece of rope tied into what appears to be a crude noose" was found last week in the firefighter's gear locker at a fire station in Bloomington, Minnesota, but the incident wasn't reported to the department's leadership until Thursday, Bloomington Mayor Tim Busse said in a statement released on Saturday.

Senior Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander said Sunday that he thinks it would "help" if President Donald Trump wore a mask because it would eliminate political stigma around doing so as the coronavirus continues to spread across the US.

"If wearing masks is important and all the health experts tell us that it is in containing the disease in 2020, it would help if from time to time the President would wear one to help us get rid of this political debate that says if you're for Trump, you don't wear a mask, if you're against Trump, you do," the Tennessee Republican, who chairs the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, said on CNN's "Inside Politics."

You would even think a psychotic "white supremacist" would be able to tie a decent noose and not accept an inferior crude version*.

*And I am betting that the "crude noose" is either a simple slip knot or a bowline, both of which have a myriad of common non-noose applications

My family members can often be at odds with one another and just generally full of drama, but one thing I have to say for them is, practically no one has been drinking the Kung Flu Kool-Aid.

47 I'd be 100% in favor of seeing Kapershit handed a fat, juicy NFL QB contract.

Call his bluff, put him in as a starter, and let's just see how very badly he sucks at the job.

Bonus. While I won't be watching any NFL games in real time or by means that they might monetize, I won't mind seeing the highlight reels on the 10pm news, when he gets absolutely obliterated by a succession of star defensive linebackers.

Imagine, if you will, a full-steam tackle so utterly devastating that the refs will have to call in a backhoe to dig him out of the turf.

Sure. Give him the contract. Just one more step in the NFL's march to the grave.

52 Regarding the school board member sipping a beer, at one time it was common for businessmen to drink at lunch and return to work. In some companies businessmen kept liquor in their offices. This was not just in advertising.

School board meetings are held at night, and are unpaid volunteer work. I'm not saying they should all be sucking down money when they make decisions to waste our money, but their decision making is so sucky anyway, what difference does a drink of beer make?

Mask-placebo addicts/"public health""authorities" - show me your research, specifically address decades of RCTs showing the opposite, and get back to us.

Rep. Presley - you're an offensively stupid, racist grifter, you are too stupid or mentally ill to serve in any public position, and your own peace of mind would be best served by leaving the country (go wherever you want, you'll flounder there as nowhere else has the enormous lavishly funded make-believe "racism" grifting industry the US suffers from - they just have a lot more actual racism.

60 Signs requiring masks are popping up at various stores around here. I'm ignoring them. So far nobody's said a word.
Posted by: Insomniac - Ex Cineribus Resurgo at June 28, 2020 10:18 PM (swdNU)


Mom and I went into a Barnes & Noble today to spend the afternoon for my birthday. (I got a pocket edition of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, which I've never read before. High hopes.) A new sign on the door announced masks were required, but we went on inside regardless, spent maybe an hour and a half, and no one got onto us. Most people did have masks, but there were quite a few who didn't.

I get the feeling even the employees don't care about this BS anymore.

Colorado is dumb, at least in the Front Range. I was in Wyoming and Montana last weekend, and I saw very few masks, mostly worn by the exact kind of people you would expect. Hell, even employees of stores and restaurants was maybe 55-50.

But here in FC, I still see so many sheep wearing masks. Alone. In cars. Or walking in God's great outdoors.

I need to get the fuck away from here.

77 Regarding the protester in Alamosa, CO who shot a driver in the back of the head back on June 4, a couple bits of information.

1. The man who was shot is out of the hospital and recuperating at his sister's home in Alamosa, good prospects for full recovery.

2. The shooter (a defense attorney) made $60,000 bail and immediately left town.

3. A group of locals, armed and ready for trouble had shown up downtown to protect businesses from vandalism.

4. The highlight of the encounter was reported thusly:

That night and the other three first nights of protest here went peacefully, with little more friction than a Black man calling a gaggle of armed posse members some names and a white man mooning protesters with "All Lives Matter" written on his butt.


Which one of you Morons was in Alamosa that day?

Women will usually trade Freedom for perceived safety, Men, will not.

118 Just a random thought:

The push is to compel everyone to wear the veil until there is a vaccine. That is, make life miserable with the only solution complying by taking in your tormentor's solution - a vaccine.

Ask yourself, did you take part in any negotiation about what you will do and for how long and under what conditions?

Related items:

News reports that the CCP virus seeks out and kills a disproportionate number of blacks than whites.

Then suddenly, a mysterious social event occurs where white millennial women who happen to be major supporters of abortion and eugenics are decrying white privilege and what we must do to elevate the poor blacks who have been tormented by whites for centuries.

We must have reparations! Move blacks to the front of the line (except I'll keep my job and position, thankyou).

Look! A Vaccine backed by chief eugenics and ZPG supporter Bill Gates who vaxxed the hell out of AFricans only to discover that many of them became sterilized by the vaccine!

What? we are rationing this New Vaccine that is mandatory in order to be released from bondage and slavery of The Veil?

Its only fair that blacks have access to the new and untested vaccine that will free us from slavery - they are dying because of the CCP and because of White Privilege, we demand that they receive this treatment before any other.

Oh shit. It kills people.

Ok, Lets wait for version 2.0 and let the poor and exploited Mexicans have it before us privileged whites

(meanwhile, you keep wearing that veil!)

134 It's interesting observing the fear dynamic with masks. The people wearing them (in general; exceptions exist) think that those who don't are gonna kill someone with their selfishness. The people not wearing them think that submitting to the mask will encourage the totalitarians.

So we end up fearing each other, which fulfills the Marxist goal of further alienating members of society.

173 Military personnel stationed in Germany were authorized 2 beers (one liter) at lunch, on base. I know this because it was explained to me how it worked, though sadly, not when I was there.

The German civilians working on base ate at their German run Cantina, and their Union had bargained for the right to have 2 beers at lunch. This is still the case, as far as I know.

The US soldiers lost that right long ago, because stupid fuckers abused it. That's the story of the US popular culture in general. One guy shits his pants, we all gotta wear diapers.

This one? Recently divorced Long Haul Truck Driver.

HAWT! Met her online and it turned out our Dads had worked together at ATT back in the day. Lots in common.

Lasted about a year, and then things changed. She was having problems with Menopause, so was playing with changing her hormones, at the same time she was messing with anti anxiety meds (which I didn't know about).

Ended up checking herself into a Ward, and never spoke to me again after that.

Married some guy she had known since high school 6 months later.

Turns out she was seriously co dependent. She wanted someone to run her life for her. She didn't want to have to make decisions.

Problem is? I have too many existing commitments to take on someone who can't take care of themselves.

Interesting thing? Have not talked to her at all in 4 years, yet just NOW she suddenly started contacting my friends.

I think its a plea for my attention, which ain't going to happen.

210 San Franpsycho, I think the classic was a "travesty of a mockery of two shams", which you probably recall. Woody.

Hadrian, oh yes, there have been many RCTs (randomized controlled trials - not regimental combat teams, in this context) of "non-pharmaceutical interventions" and their benefit in control of ILIs (influenza-like illnesses).

Some outfit you might have heard from called the CDC just published one a month ago in their emerging disease publication. Yes, the CDC connection does raise credibility questions, but .......

https://preview.tinyurl.com/yckgtrk4

"evidence from 14 randomized controlled trials of these measures [hand hygiene and masks] did not support a substantial effect on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza."

Read the whole thing, it's short, it's not *just* as simple as the above excerpt, but it's very close to that simple.

And as our new occasional commenter Thesokorus would hasten to correctly point out - the actual health risk to most people from C19 is so limited that the technical efficacy of any counter-measure is almost academic.

Put another way, why won't masks be required every flu season?

I love the irony. Your statement was designed to be offensive and divisive - which plays into the goals of Marxism you obviously don't mind furthering.

If you want to wear the veil and feel smug in doing so, then you are welcome to wear one until the day you die - anything less, until all communicable diseases have been eradicated is hypocrisy.

For those of us who have lived long enough to recognize what is going on for what it is, just accept that we have more intelligence, knowledge and wisdom than those who favor emotions and laughable virtue signalling to guide their lives.

I think there are two driving factors - feeling superior to all the sheeple who aren't treating this like the Black Death (these are the same sorts of people who become vegans), and the hope that this catastrophe will trigger off The Revolution, and overthrow the social order that has left them so terribly, terribly, oppressed.

A Klan hood has been test driven at a Walmart which resulted in Karen calling the police and demanding an arrest.

It is necessary in a military environment (whose purpose was formerly to protect the nation state, I suppose.)

And - they own yer ass, literally and figuratively. Can be punished for a severe sunburn. Why, you may ask? Because one is not authorized to be absent from work due to a sunburn. One can't wear their uniform, or equipment, or perhaps deploy on a moments notice.

There was no allowance for anything other than emotional reasons. (and we didn't even cover the possible medical reasons why someone may choose not to wear the veil)

Because not everything is about feelings and ideology.

I honestly don't care what mask wearers or non-mask wearers are thinking or feeling about the matter. It is not worth the energy.

What I do care about is my government making personal decisions for me and treating me as a child or worse, as chattel.

I've heard weird things about Bill Gates's involvement will vaccines and it's difficult to tell what is true and what is someone's wild paranoid speculations. I've heard he harmed people in other countries with his vaccines and then also heard that wasn't true. Like I've heard he was responsible for a polio vaccine causing paralysis and deformities in some third-world country, but I don't understand why he would be vaccinating people for an illness that has been nearly wiped off the face of the earth or why he would use a harmful vaccine when we've already developed an effective one that was used safely for decades.

And if so, why can't we defund the "sanctuary cities", kick out the illegals and shut the borders? For our safety?

I wear paper masks that I get at a hospital.
I went to my Paint program on my desktop.
Made a 6 pointed star about 5" across and printed it in Yellow with a black outline.
Cut it out and stapled to my mask.

Hey all.

Newsom has closed bars in 7 counties, including LA. About another 7 are on The List.

More good news/bad news.

Good: People at Hugo's Tacos in LA are so sick of being told by "Hugo" to wear masks that they've been abusing the proprietors and even threw a cup of water on one of them.

Bad: Hugo's Tacos shut down, sick of the abuse.

Maybe worse: I don't know if Hugo's was afraid some Karen would narc them out for not harassing their unmasked customers.

Anyway, I like the spirit of the non-maskers.

The death tolls or other tangible "bad" things are not going to be delivered here, no medical systems overwhelmed (away from the border, that is!), and eventually many people will rightly just rebel in some way beyond their low compliance with the (mostly stupid) "rules" of behavior.

292 Here is my tinfoil hat theory for the evening.

Our education system has been treating around 6 million children a year with psychoactive medication for the last decade, from ages as young as 3 or 4 years old.

The riotous, malevolent anti-social behavior on display in our streets has not only been a result of a 15 year indoctrination plan specifically mapped out by the education system, but has been augmented by the forced dosing of psychoactive medications which directly inhibited proper maturation of the frontal lobe of the adolescent brain.

For this reason, not only do we see the usual violent tendencies from the ruffians from lower income government-level subsistence living, but they are joined by a healthy contingent of middle class medicated zombies from suburbia that lack impulse control.

It has all been patiently planned.

Okay, thank you. That helps me understand where you are coming from. If I understand correctly, you would have liked me to be more comprehensive in my observations.

I do acknowledge and agree that there are people who do not wear the mask and do not think about whether or not it has anything to do with totalitarianism and government overreach.

I personally do not wear a mask. I think it's too late to stop the spread of the virus and that most everybody who is going to get it has gotten it already. Also, I do not think it benefits me or anyone else. If I am sick with an illness that involves a fever, I stay home out of consideration for others.

About two hours ago, the boy came into the house while I was on the phone with my brother. He said "So-and-so beat up our friend, and ran into the park. Can I chase him down there and get him?"

"Yes. Go."

Sister comes in about ten seconds later shouting "Brother is chasing so-and-so into the park."

"OK, what are you still doing here? Go help your brother chase down so-and-so."

My brother says "Maybe you should tell Lady YD what her kids are up to."

"Nah. She'd just say no."

Lady YD comes out a few minutes later: "Where are my kids?"

"Your son is leading a gang of children to get revenge on a boy who beat one of their friends. They're at the park."

"WHAT WHAT WHAT?!?!"

"Yeah, it's time for the boy to do this thing. He's eleven, for chrissakes."

She eventually relaxed about it, and then I paid the boy ten dollars. But I got yelled at a lot, first.

317 " I think it's too late to stop the spread of the virus and that most everybody who is going to get it has gotten it already." - Emmie

Emmie, consider if you will that not only are you almost certainly correct, but that general WHO/CDC/everybody else guidelines are that once a highly transmissible virus infects more than 1% of a population, it is in operational terms "prevalent" (part of that is that it's assumed the actual infection rate is a multiple of the confirmed rate).

And (drum roll ......), radical mitigation and broad containment measures no longer make sense. Just like you said. Horse, open barn door, etc.

Sweden and a few other places did the "conventional" thing here - *they* were not the experiment, or the radical new thing, *we* were, many other major countries were. If not already, by fall it will be clear that there was little if any benefit to almost all of the efforts and costs borne here. Even Sweden effed up the elderly/nursing care thing, and like the US, minus that component, the death toll will be far from apocalyptic, or even from 1968/69.

I'm a bitter opponent of perfection as a standard, and a big fan of learning curves. But I fear that there'll be little learning this time, for several reasons. However obviously wrong our approach (after late April) was, to thinking informed people, there simply won't be an accounting.

A projectile (bullet) propelled by the gas pressure from that HP38 in my 38spl rounds will travel at around 700 fps initially, out the muzzle of the 4-inch Model 66. The 30-06 bullet out of the Garand is closer to 2500 fps. Fired straight up, they'll return to earth accelerating at 32 fps/s, limited aerodynamically to some terminal velocity. Can't imagine the 150 grain bullet from the Garand would return to the surface at 2500 fps. Something far below that.

341 Bullet fired straight up leaves muzzle with an impelling force propelling it. It slows from the initial velocity due to wind resistance plus gravity. When it reaches its apex the velocity is zero. It begins to return toward the ground impelled only by gravity, minus wind resistance. when gravity equals wind resistance, it no longer accelerates and falls at a constant velocity. Upon returning to earth it re-enters the barrel of the gun and due to the lesser velocity lodges halfway down.

Do not re-fire the weapon at this point.

Blonde M., of course CA isn't in play on the presidential level, but I think the longer this medically illiterate abuse of the population continues, the greater the chance of some notable blowback in November. "Greater,", as in *some*, vs. the usual none, from a dumbed-down, submissive, useless CA electorate.

The death tolls or other tangible "bad" things are not going to be delivered here, no medical systems overwhelmed (away from the border, that is!), and eventually many people will rightly just rebel in some way beyond their low compliance with the (mostly stupid) "rules" of behavior.
Posted by: rhomboid

Agreed. Another of my recent stories: the Santa Cruz police officially surrendered to happy beach mobs who refused to wear masks and keep six feet away from the nearest stranger while sunning and surfing. Rules HAD been laid out for beach-going, but so few people obeyed that the cops admitted they were overwhelmed and they had no choice but to fully reopen the beaches and let the mobs rule. (Someone here compared it to the pattern we saw with BLM, but I reject that.)

This is in ultra-blue Santa Cruz, where everyone believes the right myths -- about climate, about race, presumably about COVID. Of course they'll continue to vote blue, and it's a shame -- I bet someone with anti-big-government ideas in service of the citizens of Santa Cruz could get some attention.

374 ..Terminal velocity is the same for all objects no?

Posted by: Hotgas VIP Member at June 28, 2020 11:42 PM (m1H25)



No. Skydiver falling in the conventional "layout" position will hit appx. 125mph descent velocity. Let the same skydiver assume the "pike" diver's position, and now he'll reach T.V. at appx. 225 mph d.v.

Terminal Velocity is determined by air density, aerodynamic drag in three forms: parasite drag, form drag and frontal area.

The sleeker the object (to certain mathematical understandings of "sleek"), the faster the object can fall until it's aerodynamic drag equals the force of gravity on said object, resulting in Terminal Velocity.

The weight of an object does not necessarily affect Terminal Velocity, except that the heavier object might accelerate more rapidly in the descent. And also, the heavier object may well run out of atmosphere in which to find Terminal Velocity, and continue to accelerate until impact with the ground.

A good example of this is the WWII British "Tallboy" bomb, weighing in at well over 10,000 lbs, with a very sleek shape, indeed.

Said to be transonic, or possibly becoming supersonic just before impact, it is an example of a object continuing to accelerate until impact. Most were dropped from between 10,000 and 20,000 ft. altitude above sea level.

The storied tungsten "Rods from God" so discussed here? They'd de-orbit at Mach 25, being slowed by atmospheric drag to a mere Mach 7 or so before impact.

Oh, and a mere bullet, fired on a true vertical, will for an instant, just become a still, motionless object at somewhere about 3,000 ft. above the point of shooting. Then, it will act like a pebble or rock, dropped from the same altitude.

It will not on it's on find or assume the "nose down" attitude necessary to a Terminal Velocity above it's own lateral shape's maximum potential.

Only if fired on a ballistic arc, will it continue in a nose-forward path, like a thrown football, until impact. In which case it will also retain a very potentially deadly velocity.

Posted by: USNtakim at June 29, 2020 12:00 AM (0OmEj)


Absolutely. A Win. .300 mag. fired at a target at the 1,000 yard line, will leave the muzzle at +/- 3100 ft. per second. Rise above the direct line of sight between the scope and bullseye will be, (pulling outta my butt, not going to look up the tables right now), about 5 ft. at about 650 yards, where the arc will begin to descend towards said bullseye.

When it hits the target, it will still be exceeding the speed of sound, holding about 1,800 ft. per second of velocity.

Conversely, the same rifle, with the very next cartridge fired out of the box, but vertically.

That bullet will ascend to maybe 3,500 ft. above the muzzle (.300 Mag tends to go further than AK-47), become for an instant, vertically motionless, and then begin to fall as nothing but a non-ballistic, purely gravitational object.

It might accelerate to a dangerous, deadly velocity. But it won't be anywhere *near* supersonic, as it WILL be falling on it's side, and likely tumbling with no dynamic stability whatsoever.

Posted by: ibguy at June 29, 2020 12:14 AM (EHVbt)

410 So someone with no health problems says mask wearing does not cause O2 levels to drop? I can assure them mine drop and it would register on my oximeter. Standing in line causes mine to drop as does walking around the store. No one walking by me in the store says anything about my lack of mask. They can hear me breathing and know why I don't wear one. I get tired of Facebook fact checking this stuff.

And as we also know, the masks do nothing.

415
I remember reading some interesting stuff about bullets, terminal velocity and the arc. As mentioned above, a bullet fired at a very high angle will start tumbling on the way down, and that will reduce terminal velocity way down.

What was interesting, if I remember is the transonic range. That's very chaotic and when a bullet slows through this range, the trajectory becomes unpredictable. It will tumble and go all over the place.

In the subsonic range, it's stable, and in supersonic range, it's stable. But the transonic range is where it goes to hell.

So, if your trajectory allows the bullet to slow into the transonic region before it hits the target (or the ground), it will tumble.

It's like how the engineering schools are being infiltrated by "Engineering Education" Ph.Ds, who are bringing SJW precepts into engineering.

For a few decades, there was a modus vivendi at universities - the serious departments let the SJWs run wild in the nonserious departments, and the SJWs left the serious departments alone.

Now, all departments have to bow the knee to the SJWs.

Exactly. Especially the way most people wear them. Instapundit had a picture the other day from a nurse at the end of her shift after wearing an N95 mask the whole time. Her face looked pretty rough, all red and bruised (I'm sure multiple days of wearing probably contributed). That would hurt. But if worn properly, that's what happens.

So yeah if people aren't wearing N95 masks, and wearing them properly so they are crushing the crap out of their face, then they aren't stopping any viruses.

North Korea leads the way in progressive math questions:

During the Fatherland Liberation War [North Korea's official name for the Korean War] the brave uncles of Korean People's Army killed 265 American Imperial bastards in the first battle. In the second battle they killed 70 more bastards than they had in the first battle. How many bastards did they kill in the second battle? How many bastards did they kill altogether?

South Korean boys, who are fighting against the American imperialist wolves and their henchmen, handed out 45 bundles of leaflets with 150 leaflets in each bundle. They also stuck 50 bundles with 50 leaflets in each bundle. How many leaflets were used?

450 Just musing out loud. Is it possible to fire a bullet on a true vertical? The angular momentum of the Earth's rotation would give it some tiny amount of lateral movement when it left the muzzle. If you were to compensate for that by firing it slightly angled opposite the direction of the Earth's rotation, it would hit a spot on the Earth's surface upon its return that would be different than the spot where it left, even though it traveled up and down in a true vertical. OTOH, if you shot it up in a true vertical relative to the Earth's surface, it would actually travel in a very steep parabola. I know they have to worry about this stuff with long-range artillery and rockets.

454 About masks: This past week I had my 6-month "how is your cancer doing?" check up, and they always take vitals. The nurse commented, "You're O2 is 96%, that's great for wearing a mask." I was wearing the a mask I'd made from quilter's cotton, and I said something to that effect. I was surprised she commented on it, but I was also surprised because my O2 is always right at the top of the range, 98-99%. For all the crap I've had go wrong with me, my lungs have always been perfect. Point being, even flimsy cotton masks impair O2 levels in people without any other impairment. Not enough in my case to cause any kind of a problem, but definitely a difference. (Cancer screening: excellent, don't have to go back for a year! Thank you, Lord!)

https://preview.tinyurl.com/ycmp4pgo

from the article:

So you may ask: why are we continuing to report increasing numbers of cases of COVID as though it were BAD news for America? Rather than as GOOD news, i.e, that the thousands of healthy Americans testing positive (also known as "asymptomatic") are indicative of the presence of herd immunity protecting themselves and many of us from potential future assaults by variants of COVID?

Why did we as a society stop sending our children to schools and camps and sports activities? Why did we stop going to work and church and public parks and beaches?

Why did we insist that healthy persons stay at home, rather than observing the evidence-based, medically prudent method of identifying those who were sick and isolating them from the rest of the population - advising the sick to stay at home and allowing the rest of society to function normally?

And, while we witnessed the gatherings of protesters in recent days with little concerns for COVID-19 spread among these asymptomatic persons, most certainly many are hoping that the increasing case numbers for COVID-19 will discourage folks from coming to any more rallies for certain candidates for political office.

Fear is a powerful weapon...............

The NULL of your question would be to fire the experiment from directly atop either the North or South pole. Eliminates the Corialis Effect, to a mathematical degree approaching true zero.

At which point, all of my other points as to the not-ballistically-stabile nature of a falling rifle bullet, would still apply.

Corialis Effect in normal riflery, doesn't begin to show in the caluclations under about 800 yards, and begins to be a real factor starting at about 1,200 yards. Rifle shot trajectory distances, not "vertically fired" tomfoolery.

And the artillery mafia are masters at the math of the ballistic solutions, above all others.

QuietI, I'd be happy to help if I could, but these are professional development classes offered through our community college system for our instructors. I'm pretty sure you could not participate unless you were on our staff.

It sounds like the avenues you are exploring may be your best bet. Does your school system offer professional development classes? Is there somewhere you can take Instructional Design courses? Maybe something is available through a professional organization?

I'm only doing this to expand my utility to the college. I really hate the way they conduct their online classes but I have to get the certification if I want to do it at all. I am hoping I can have some latitude if I actually teach courses online, but I will undoubtedly be disappointed. They've been systematically restricting autonomy more and more since I started teaching here in 2007.

475 The article I linked up above by a doctor in FL touches on this issue of C19 stats - he discusses the problem with "case" definition (different than most/all major diseases that have reporting systems), but there are myriad problems with fatality #s as well. Remember, month or more ago, Dr Scarf publicly throwing out that there were problems, and the #s might be as much as 25% too high?

I get "new disease". I get uncertainty. I get caution. I get conservative approach to certain aspects of potentially huge health threats.

I have never gotten such fuzzy definitions of "cases", and such expansive and potentially misleading definition of fatalities from a disease, as we have seen from the outset.

I go withJims logic... i shoot long distance in and out of trans all the time. In ballistics calcs, no math here but you shoot trans range to 'True' your cartridge load. to verify velocity and true your elevations for all ranges with that particular load. I go way past trans. A simple 6.5 Creedmoor will shoot to a mile with a decent BC 147 gn bullet. and nice round holes in the targets, not a key hole tumbler

519 A few personal (i.e., absolutely subject to being destroyed by empirical evidence) snobservations on why S.F. is inexplicably peaceful. (I do not accept the "you don't destroy your own capital" theory. Zombie Napoleon agrees.)

1) Hillz baby, we gotz hillz. Seriously, get a topo map. Even streets that seem relatively flat, are only that over the course of a few blocks. After awhile, that small incline adds up.

2) We have very few black folk. The Libs got rid of most of them starting in the 60's. Conversely, we have a lot of Asians and Latins (both of whom are not really big on rioting, AFAIK) and neither of them subscribe to the "destroy your home and Uncle Sam will give you what you want" theory (again, AFAIK).

3) We have really, really big money here that is actually in city limits and not protected by a moat, a minefield, and a private infantry battalion like Bill Gates near Seattle. I guarantee you that Nancy either already understood this or was told in no uncertain terms -- minimize the destruction babe or else. I used to joke that as a lawyer I made less $ than the butlers of some of my clients.

4) Challenging street layouts. It's a bitch to get around this city, especially certain parts. Winding streets, narrow streets, lots of "no thru access" (and backed up by buildings, not plywood), and we don't have a traditional, central downtown.

5) Drug dealers. They're businessmen/women. They do not want violent crime in their markets. They just want to know what you want to buy from them. (I'm not talking about the oddball tweaker or crackhead trying to scam somebody outta some cash.) I have a studio apartment in the TL (pied-a-terre) and me or my gf parked my car there, on the street, several nights a week for two years with no break-ins. (But the parking and street sweeping tix!) How could that be in the Tenderloin? The Latin "businessmen" operated on certain street corners all night so we'd park near them. The last thing they want is someone making broken windows sounds.

6) Seattle, Portland, and Minne have simply eclipsed us as to how far left the governments and residents are.

7) Oakland. Much easier to get into, get out of, and governed by the stupidest of the stupid. Pull the annual Alameda County grand jury reports -- Joakland gets nailed, at least once, every year. Also, aside from a few sections, it's mostly flat.

Don't get me wrong: I am very glad it's quiet here. My (now ex-) gf recently adopted a rescue kitty from the local SPCA (I'm his godfather) and they need it quiet. I'll send some pics for next Saturday. Apparently he had some kind of feline-susceptible cancer removed from his neck. Possible it could come back which scared everyone off, except us. His ear flaps also fold down forward due to infection scar tissue, and he had to have 1/2 his tail amputated due to what looks like injury from being pulled hard and since the hair hasn't grown back yet, I call him Fingerbutt. He looks a bit like an orange Maine coon runt (he's about 9# at 6 years old) with mutton chops. He's got a serious demeanor but he's very affectionate and loves to rub a hard fist. Taking care of him keeps ex-gf from obsessing about what happened to Dorkie Dork.

Anyways, that's what's up here. Maybe our 2 or 3 other Rice-A-Ronis can comment.

Real key is how they can get outside agitators there.

And does it fit their agenda.

San Fran is a very Liberal city, but its surrounded by the bay.

So if they come in from San Jose? That's two bridges. Easily closed.

From inland? A couple of highways.

San Fran is a Death Trap for a perp who wants to get OUT of the city.

Now, Oakland? They can either come from San Jose (where there have been problems), or from inland. Problem is that most of inland would once more have to come up ONE highway, across Altamont Pass.

The population of San Fran is not a BLM crowd, ergo they would have to be imported. I think you've been saved by geography.

In fact, thinking on it. It kind of proves the targets were pre planned.

Did they hit New York? Well, not really. Why? bridges there limit escape routes.

San Fran? not really.

Hollywood? can escape into greater LA AND three main avenues of egress.

San Diego? they hit places like San Ysidro early, but the Hispanics there shut them down.

Now, look at the terrain of the places they DID hit, and just a very cursory review it looks like they hit Blue Areas, where there were also plenty of escape routes.

FWIW, a sufficiently re-gentrified SF, in the parts where it counts, would result in a CONSERVATIVE San Francisco.

I read, about 20 years ago, residents of the Haight-Ashbury, the once-upon-a-time epicenter of the Flower/Love-In/Hippie/Whatever Culture (I was a few '60' fossils there in the late '90s) no longer welcomed the latest Hippie/social misfits. They were real upset with the homeless sleeping on their streets ... this was in 1998, IIRC, in the San Jose Mercury Sunday edition of Parade.

I postulate that very many residents are voting the way they do, and (virtue) signalling as they do, because they ...

... I don't know; want to "Keep the Faith", "Resist!", "Stick it to The Man", "Keep the Dream Alive" ...

... or, much more likely, now have a great life with theri kids, in their very-toney neighborhoods, and don't want to see it trashed by the Powers-That-Be.

Perhaps the alumn should be asking why Princeton has spent years creating the woke leftists that are the mob.

Russia invading Crimea was not an event that required response.

It is very interesting that much liberal culture requires abandoning the entire enlightenment of western culture.

Self-governance, self-control, scientific principles of theory, test, and document (repeat as needed), and liberal (free speech and thoughts) ideas just dropped for the current narrative.

Looking at many of the intersectionality (cultural marxism) ideas requires you to abandon manly STEM fields. And is that NOT the idea of much of the movement? If a student cannot make in STEM or Biz school (and about 75% in college cannot) then where do they go and what do they do? The go the fill-in-the-blanks STUDIES programs. Program that by design ignore science and scientific methods and replace that with feelings.

PS Most of the feeling is that I am oppressed because of my body parts, color, or sex life.

One of my local Dollar Tree stores has the obligatory sign, "No

Both Walmart and Kroger here have given up on "sanitizing" the shopping carts.


They still have the counting lady up front but that's about it. Many of the "shop this way" stickers on the floor are gone and are not being replaced.

It's literally a joke at this point.

That way, they are not forced to increase exposure to the virus.

Same with their right to assemble peaceable, to protest.

As for his "rights", no one can supply you with a good education. You absolutely must participate in the acquisition. I recall teachers saying "we can't pour the information into your heads, you have to read it, do it, yourselves". This seems to be lost on our violent, ignorant underclass and on plenty of others.

There should be a right to access all the other stuff, but only by earning and effort. I'm sick of the FSA.

The only thing I totally agree with is a pox on monopolies and unfair foreign competition, but the party of FDR wants more of those things.

745 True, when you can get dysentery from drinking the bottled water there, a little cough is no biggy

I was talking to a Vietnam vet about the Plannedemic in general and immune systems in particular.

I asked the question: "Why is it that Mexicans can drink their water but Americans get Montezuma's Revenge."

Then an explanation came back about dysentery and he originally thought that the locals had a built in immunity. Until he got to Vietnam and then discovered why the locals there are thin and spindly. Because many of them suffer dysentery too.

Yet another difference in Western civilization and others - while we do something about the problem, others just suck it up and live with it as if nothing could be done.

We can't get tested even though the wife was exposed to an infected co-worker. In Texas you need a doctor's referral for a test and our Doctor won't do one unless you are having symptoms which neither of us are.


I suspect the actual infection rate is an order of magnitude greater than we are seeing.


There was supposed to be testing done this past Saturday at the Armory by the National Guard. We called the number listed but no one ever answered. Drove by the place on Saturday when they were supposed to be doing testing and it was closed and empty. No signs or anything.

Precious little covid is a plot a device. Yep, it's a virus, but not a super duper special one like smallpox. I have met many people who think you can get it again and again and that it will never go away. Why does Fauci have a job, why does Clintonista Birx-Reffe have a job? These people need a kick out the door and an investigation as does Roddy's sis.
