The Saturday Night Joke


Two very active seniors (Jacob, age 92, and Mary, age 89), living in The Villages, are all excited about their decision to get married. They go for a stroll to discuss the wedding, and on the way, they pass a drugstore. Jacob suggests they go in. Jacob addresses the man behind the counter, “Are you the owner?”

The pharmacist answers, “Yes.”

Jacob says, “We’re about to get married. Do you sell heart medication?”
The Pharmacist: “Of course we do.”

Jacob: “How about medicine for circulation?”
Pharmacist: “All kinds.”

Jacob: “Medicine for rheumatism?”
Pharmacist: “Definitely.”

Jacob: “How about suppositories and medicine for impotence?”
Pharmacist: “You bet!”

Jacob: “Medicine for memory problems, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s?”
Pharmacist: “Yes, a large variety. The works.”

Jacob: “What about vitamins, sleeping pills, Geritol, antidotes for Parkinson’s disease?”
Pharmacist: “Absolutely.”

Jacob: “Everything for heartburn and indigestion?”
Pharmacist: “We sure do.”

Jacob: “You sell wheelchairs and walkers and canes?”
Pharmacist: “All speeds and sizes.”

Jacob: “Adult diapers?”

Pharmacist: “Sure, how can I help you?

Jacob: “We’d like to use this store as our Bridal Registry.”

As always, The ONT is always looking out for you. Looking for the next hot job? This could be it.

"As the promise of autonomous machines lags the underlying technology, the growing need for human robot-minders could juice the remote workforce," reports The Wall Street Journal. An anonymous reader shares excerpts from the report:
Across industries, engineers are building atop work done a generation ago by designers of military drones. Whether it's terrestrial delivery robots, flying delivery drones, office-patrolling security robots, inventory-checking robots in grocery stores or remotely piloted cars and trucks, the machines that were supposed to revolutionize everything by operating autonomously turn out to require, at the very least, humans minding them from afar. Until the techno-utopian dream of full automation comes into effect -- and frankly, there's no guarantee that will ever happen -- there will be plenty of jobs for humans, just not ones their parents would recognize. Whether the humans in charge are in the same city or thousands of miles away, the proliferation of not-yet-autonomous technologies is driving a tiny but rapidly growing workforce.

Once upon a time, a degree from the University of California meant something. Not any more.

The University of California-Berkeley is offering students more entertaining ways to earn credit toward graduating but, while these alternatives might make students happy, some conservative scholars are anything but thrilled.

“How to Solve the Rubik's Cube" and “Henna Art: Application and Cultural Perspectives” are both courses offered to UC-Berkeley students for credit toward graduating. According to the course descriptions, they teach students "how to solve the Rubik's Cube, [or] get faster at solving it" and to understand the “theoretical basis of the transnational meanings of Henna tattoos."

The family that does crime together spends time together. Granny is also a Genius Award Winner.

A 75-year-old Louisiana woman has been arrested for allegedly arranging for drugs to be smuggled to her son in a county jail, records show.

Cops charge that Judy Futch twice delivered Suboxone, an opioid addiction medication, to an “inmate job site” outside of the Ouachita Correctional Institute so that inmates could later deliver the narcotics to her son Derrek, 46.

A criminal investigation was opened last week when deputies discovered Suboxone “at one of the inmate workers jobs.” When confronted by cops, Futch denied involvement in any smuggling. When shown photos of her carrying a bag at the job site, Futch claimed it contained “hamburgers for the inmates.”

62 I used to bet people I could get all the colors together on a Rubik's cube in less than a minute no matter how much they mixed it up. So they'd mix and mix - and I had figured out how, if you put the right pressure on the right angles, the whole thing pops apart and all the pieces fall out. Then you just stick them back together any way you want.

Well I could never bet them twice.

192 ...Jim - The dive boat at California. 40 people aboard, and no watch. Hell, I can't imagine that even tied up at a pier.

Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at September 07, 2019 10:34 PM (eYD0A)



The Skipper and First Mate on that boat need to swing from a yardarm.

EVERY Captain I've decked under was absolutely committed to the safety of his passengers, first, last and always.

Sometimes, this meant putting all of one's attention on the boat, other times, it meant having a Come to Jesus conversation with an unruly guest, who might've put other passengers at risk if not .. encouraged to calm down.

A crew of five should have NO problem working a four-on, eight off watch. Of if they're whipped from a hard day at sea, go a two-on, six off watch.

I've seen the video of the "sister ship" of the one that burned. It was a death trap, and that "sister ship" needs to be gutted to the waterline, and a new berthing plan WITH proper escape routes and hatches, configured and installed.

On the ship that burned, it was reported that the fire started in the galley. Which blocked the ONLY companionway out of the berthing area.

Know where the "Escape Hatch" led? Right into the same damn galley.

Oh, and the "Escape Hatch" was a TIGHT fit for a 110 lb. T.V. reporterette. BARELY made it through, after a struggle.

That boat's architects and builders are gonna be sued HARD, every bit as much as the operating company and the crew themselves.

These crew were not bad people, mean people or evil people. They fucked up, HUGE.

Thirty four dead. How do any of those crew now sleep at night?

i tried it again as an adult and remained frustrated. even if i got the practice problems right, i flunked all the tests.

Read about Richard Feynman and "New Math". He got involved with it during the elementary education of his young son. He was basically, "WTF?" He was enraged by the elementary science education.

In that book, Feynman said he finally realized that he didn't really make the discoveries of the O-ring problem himself. He was carefully led, with hints and questions, by NASA and contractor engineers. They knew, or strongly suspected, but were afraid to blow that whistle on their own.

They realized Feynman was the one to be their vehicle.

One of the things I have gleaned from analyses about Chernobyl is that the Soviet engineers had the belief that reactor failures only happened in Western Democracy reactors, not Soviet reactors.
Combine this with a loss of focus on main goals -- in Chernobyl the focus was not in clean safe energy for the nation, but for accelerating the building of reactors at the lowest cost to meet productions quotas set by the Party -- you have a disaster waiting to happen.

Read about the "safety factor" and failure rate estimates that NASA management put out with a straight face. They claimed the O-rings had a safety factor of 3. Feynman realized this was bullshit. He likened it to building bridge to carry a 1000lb load. If the bridge could carry a 3000lb load time after time with no cracks or damage, then that was a safety factor of three.

However, if the bridge takes a 1000lb load and a beam cracks only 1/3 of the way through, that's not a safety factor of 3. That's a safety factor of 0.

Such was how NASA managment rated the O-rings.

And second, they claimed a launch failure rate for the Shuttle of 1/100,000. That was absurd on its face. If true, it would mean they could launch one shuttle per day for over 250 years and expect only one failure.

Feynman did one of his famous ballpark estimations of the real failure rate, and came up with 1/100. After talking with the engineers, the actual failure rate was somewhere between 1/50 and 1/200.

Feynman realized that anyone who would put out bullshit like that either didn't know what he was talking about or was lying deliberately.

362 I was sick as a dog one day, stayed home and was flipping through channels. I came across the Warren Zevon documentary of his last days on VH1. It was profoundly moving. I knew very little about the man, just a few of his songs that I liked. But it tore me up. The kicker was when Dave Barry showed up. Apparently they were good friends. Dave played it funny, but it was easy to see that it was tearing him up.

I took one thing Warren said to heart, as I lay on the couch with a wicked cold:

Enjoy Every Sandwich.

364 Before we wander away from the algebra topic, I sense an opportunity topost an excerpt from 'Tristram Shandy', which I do a couple of times a year.

The whole chapter would become a wall-o-text, so I will forebear, though it is only a couple of pages, and worth the read, very amusing.

To set the stage, Tristram's Uncle Toby suffered a wound while fighting in Belgium. He becomes determined to find out where the projectile came from:


"The wound in my uncle Toby's groin, which he received at the siege of Namur, rendering him unfit for the service, it was thought expedient he should return to England, in order, if possible, to be set to rights.
-------
Towards the beginning of the third year, which was in August, ninety-nine, my uncle Toby found it necessary to understand a little of projectiles:—and having judged it best to draw his knowledge from the fountain-head, he began with N. Tartaglia, who it seems was the first man who detected the imposition of a cannon-ball's doing all that mischief under the notion of a right line—This N. Tartaglia proved to my uncle Toby to be an impossible thing.

—Endless is the search of Truth.

No sooner was my uncle Toby satisfied which road the cannon-ball did not go, but he was insensibly led on, and resolved in his mind to enquire and find out which road the ball did go: For which purpose he was obliged to set off afresh with old Maltus, and studied him devoutly.—He proceeded next to Galileo and Torricellius, wherein, by certain Geometrical rules, infallibly laid down, he found the precise path to be a Parabola—or else an Hyperbola,—and that the parameter, or latus rectum, of the conic section of the said path, was to the quantity and amplitude in a direct ratio, as the whole line to the sine of double the angle of incidence, formed by the breech upon an horizontal plane;—and that the semiparameter,—stop! my dear uncle Toby—stop!—go not one foot farther into this thorny and bewildered track,—intricate are the steps! intricate are the mazes of this labyrinth! intricate are the troubles which the pursuit of this bewitching phantom Knowledge will bring upon thee.—O my uncle;—fly—fly,—fly from it as from a serpent.—Is it fit—goodnatured man! thou should'st sit up, with the wound upon thy groin, whole nights baking thy blood with hectic watchings?—Alas! 'twill exasperate thy symptoms,—check thy perspirations—evaporate thy spirits—waste thy animal strength, dry up thy radical moisture, bring thee into a costive habit of body,—impair thy health,—and hasten all the infirmities of thy old age.—O my uncle! my uncle Toby."

373 And second, they claimed a launch failure rate for the Shuttle of 1/100,000. That was absurd on its face. If true, it would mean they could launch one shuttle per day for over 250 years and expect only one failure.

I recall that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission used to claim that there would be one serious reactor accident per hundred thousand years of operation, or something like that.

I was e-mailing someone drafting a government report on one aspect of nuclear power, and was mocking the NRC's safety estimates, specifically referencing NASA's safety estimates for the space shuttle, as an example of wishful estimates of the probability of an accident.

The day after my mocking e-mail, Fukushima happened.

I'm a big supporter of nuclear power, but announcing transparently ludicrous estimates of reactor safety don't help.

Admiral Hyman Rickover, "Father of the Nuclear Navy" proposed that all U.S. Nuclear Electrical Generation be run by U.S. Navy Officers and Enlisted, as their training and discipline would go far in preventing "oops, fucked up the checklist" type accidents.

Plus, their constant drills to deal with various failures and emergencies, FAR eclipsed anything the Civilian Sector was doing, then or now.

Further, he proposed that Civilian Reactors be based on a proven U.S.N. core design, and that said design be very STANDARDIZED, until such time as a "New Generation" USN would take it's place, and etc.

Admiral Rickover was not a nice man.

But he was a smart, wise and canny sonovabitch, when Smart, Wise and Canny Jewish Naval Officers were pretty much restricted to a Class of One.

Him.

My late Dad trained under his oversight, at the USN Nuclear Power School at Idaho Falls, Idaho.

Class of '61, per the documents.

Said that Rickover was ruthless. Utterly ruthless. But also knew every Sailor's name, everything in that Sailor's Service Jacket, down to the kids names and wife's social clubs.

Don't know that Rickover and Feynmann ever met or knew one another. But they were cut from the same cloth in many important ways.

The private regulator for the US nuclear power industry, INPO, which was created after Three Mile Island, is largely staffed with ex-Navy people (last I heard, the head of INPO was an ex-admiral). The idea is to enforce Navy safety standards on civilian nuclear power operations.

"Nuclear safety culture" in US reactors is quasi-military in any case - the fact that you have people with machine guns patrolling the reactor site helps emphasize that this isn't your usual civilian facility.

I actually read that story as attributed to Henry Ford, as concerning interviewing a potential Engineer, over lunch.

I was in the 4th grade at the time.

That's not to say that Admiral Rickover couldn't have adopted the same tactic.

The Rickover story I like the best, is in a test of will, he challenged a Lt., jg. (O-2) to "piss me off, if you can", just to see what the Jr. Officer had in terms of guts and sand.

Said Officer paused a moment, considered his career already over, and in a powerful lunge out of his chair, swept his arm across Rickover's desk, clearing it of everything.

Phone, appointment book, pen holder, name placard, photos, you name it.

Rickover, shocked... glared the J.G. down for a handful of seconds. He *was* pissed.

And admitted said Lieutenant J.G. to the Nuclear Power Program, with no further ado.

We need more Rickovers, fewer Powells.

And GOD HELP the Navy should another Zumwalt ever appear.

I was reading about young Feynman at Los Alamos during the Manhattan Project. He was a young whippershapper. Neils Bohr, although he never like Feynman personally, would call Feynman in to run things up the flag pole.

All the other physicists there were so in awe of Bohr, they wouldn't dare challenge him, but Feynman wasn't afraid to tell Bohr he was full of shit. Which he was, and we all are.

Feynman spoke with a heavy NYC accent and Bohr said he "talked like a bum".

He was also a bit of a prankster. A prankster at the top secret nuclear bomb project. Security was heavy, and they kept their work in safes and such with fancy combination locks.

Feynman, for kicks, began to wonder.... There are all physicists, so what numbers would they likely use? Well, he figured it out, and found a little guessing, and knowing just who set the combination, would allow to crack the safe in no time.

He found that they would all use, independently, many of the same combinations. They were all physicists, and thought the same way. Every one of them probably thought he was being very clever.

Anyway, one day, he put a note in one of the Top Secret safes as a prank. That causes a firestorm with fears of infiltration by spies.

That was Richard Feynman.

Did I have a girlfriend and lastly was I gonna marry her after graduation. Then I got accepted. My friend the bio major got locked in the closet for 4-5 hours then he was accepted. They were really scraping the bottom when they took us.

Admiral Hyman Rickover, "Father of the Nuclear Navy" proposed that
all U.S. Nuclear Electrical Generation be run by U.S. Navy Officers and
Enlisted, as their training and discipline would go far in preventing
"oops, fucked up the checklist" type accidents.



The private regulator for the US nuclear power industry, INPO, which
was created after Three Mile Island, is largely staffed with ex-Navy
people (last I heard, the head of INPO was an ex-admiral). The idea is
to enforce Navy safety standards on civilian nuclear power operations.



"Nuclear safety culture" in US reactors is quasi-military in any
case - the fact that you have people with machine guns patrolling the
reactor site helps emphasize that this isn't your usual civilian
facility.

Posted by: The ARC of History! at September 08, 2019 01:12 AM (I2/tG)


INPO is NOT a regulatory organization, at least by design. And the security guards at Nuclear power plants do not carry "machine guns".

Posted by: Vic at September 08, 2019 04:31 AM (mpXpK)

456 And BTW, ex Navy Admirals do not know shit about civilian nuclear power plants and their operation.

I was reading about young Feynman at Los Alamos during the
Manhattan Project. He was a young whippershapper. Neils Bohr, although
he never like Feynman personally, would call Feynman in to run things up
the flag pole.

All the other physicists there were so in awe of Bohr, they
wouldn't dare challenge him, but Feynman wasn't afraid to tell Bohr he
was full of shit. Which he was, and we all are.

Feynman spoke with a heavy NYC accent and Bohr said he "talked like a bum".

Well, heck. I always show up early A.M. when I read things I wanted to comment upon earlier on the ONT.
A fun listen is Feynman's "Los Alamos From Below". He's hilarious, talks like a Hollywood version of a New York Cab driver and he tells the safe cracking story. Guy was a freaking gem.
