Tuesday Overnight Open Thread (4/16/24)

late-night-randomness-a-visual-feast-for-the-night-owls-20230825-107.jpg


*****

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate—we can not consecrate—we can not hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

—Abraham Lincoln

100 70 How about a little science everyone?

Last week's solar eclipse is a member of Saros 139, which will, in 162 years (July 16, 2186) will produce a solar eclipse off the coast of northern South America that will hit 7 minutes and 31 seconds in length. This is very close to the theoretical limit of totality length: 7 min 32 sec.

It was also the exeligmos to the total solar eclipse seen in FL, GA and off the East Coast on March 7, 1970.

I made a worm bin out of one, I use it for composting kitchen scraps and dishwater.
It is full to the top right now so I am just running the dish washing water through it and when the water runs out the drain I catch it and dump it on the fruit trees. I am also seeing if I can grow ginger and taro in it.
I also ground up some button mushrooms and put those on in the hope that I will get mushrooms later in the spring.

105 Why are impact grenades called grenades instead of, I dunno, mini-bombs?
Posted by: vmom stabby stabby stabby stabby stabamillion at April 16, 2024 10:25 PM (q2svT)

Grenades were so called because of their resemblance to pomegranate fruit. The early ones were iron spheres with a nipple on them with a fuse protruding from it. Grenadiers were big strong guys with a well-developed throwing arm.

He made it to 92 so he did alright. Won a WS (against Milwaukee), lost to KC and Minnesota (I think) in the other two. Great coach, hated the Cardinals. I'm a Pirates fan and they spent the 80s high on coke and losing baseball games. They lost to the Cardinals, a lot. They were in the same division. RIP Whitey.

An exeligmos is a period of 54 years, 33 days that can be used to predict successive eclipses with similar properties and location. For a solar eclipse, after every exeligmos a solar eclipse of similar characteristics will occur in a location close to the eclipse before it.

OR three Saroses. One saros is 6585.3 days, or 18 years, 9-11 days (depending on how many leap years happen in that time) and 8 hours. That eight hours accounts for the eclipse moving 120 degrees to the west.

199 Born This Day -

Mary Isabel Catherine Bernadette O'Brien, OBE. Born April 16, 1939, in West Hampstead, London, England. Died of cancer March 2, 1999, age 59, in Henley-on-Thames, England.

Known professionally as Dusty Springfield.

Dusty Springfield became an international pop star in 1964 with ''I Only Want to Be With You,'' a perky early-Beatles-style love song. Other major 60's hits included ''Wishin' and Hopin' '' (1964), and ''The Look of Love'' (1967), both written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Dusty's sultry rendition of ''The Look of Love,'' from the soundtrack of ''Casino Royale,'' anticipated the heavy-breathing eroticism of Donna Summer a decade later.

Her best seller, ''You Don't Have to Say You Love Me'' (1966), was a big-belting tear-jerker that reached No. 4 on Billboard's singles chart (No. 1 in the UK) and won her her first Grammy nomination. The country-soul ballad ''Son of a Preacher Man,'' her Top 10 hit from 1969, won her new respect and her second Grammy nomination after being prominently featured in the 1994 movie ''Pulp Fiction.

"Saros" was named by Edmond Halley, who accurately predicted the 1715 solar eclipse over England. This usage for this lunar-solar cycle was incorrect, due to some misinterpretation by Halley, or think some source Halley used.

232 A couple of Whitey Herzog stories. Both are true.

1) (Referring to the 1985 NL Championship series): 15 years later, Herzog was asked who his favorite manager was. Without hesitating, he said "Tommy Lasorda, of course." That surprised the sports journo, because Herzog & Lasorda were always thought not to like each other very much. "Why Lasorda, Whitey?" "Because the dumb SOB had a base open and he decided to pitch to Jack Clark!"

The Ripper hit a 3-run homer in the ninth, & the Cards went on to the WS.

2) The Cards once had a problem shortstop named Gary Templeton. An All Star, but a total jerk. After receiving a loud round of boos on Lady's Day in St. Louis (ladies admitted for half price), Templeton stepped onto the ledge of the dugout and gave Cards fans a 360-degree middle finger! First to his left, then straight ahead, then to his right. Herzog stepped up onto the top step of the dugout, grabbed Templeton by his belt, & jerked him down into the dugout.

This incident became famous as the "Gary Templeton Ladies Day salute."

1 saros is when 3 types of lunar orbital cycles align. It's 223 synodic months (complete cycle of lunar phases), 242 draconic months (precession of the nodes), and 239 anomalistic months (precession of the apsides).

Those numbers are close to integral, but not exactly, of course.

Anyway, an integral number of all those three lunar cycles means the sun, moon, and earth return very close to the same relative position, including seasonal (although that will drift over the long term).

I like Sing Street which was about high school Irish kids starting a band (how many times has that movie been made). It was still pretty good.

Begin Again sucked IMO. Whiny girl song writer who was cheated on by her more famous boyfriend and writing partner.

Think I'll watch Once again to clean the palate. very good about another Irish musician trying to make it.

Short term, the tidal interaction would be gone, and there would be crustal and seismic "realignments".

Long term, the seasons would go crazy. The main stabilizing effect of the moon is to keep the earth's spin axis fairly stable. It precesses, but the tilt only varies between 22.1 and 24.5 degrees. It's at 23.5 now, and decreasing.

Without the Moon, that tilt would become quite chaotic, like Mars. The Earth could well "lie on its side", about 90 degree tilt. The seasons would go crazy.

There would be some changes in sea level in a complex way, as with the Moon gone, the tidal bulges would change. There would still be some small bulges and oceans tides to the Sun's tidal field, but those are much smaller than the Moon's.

Sea level would rise closer to the poles and decrease near the equator, roughly.

I kind of exploded and told her, "You better not be like your mother."
Then, got a package from Japan of 3 books of Yokai Demon engravings from a colleague, The Kid flipped out and wanted them, after the scene at lunch Hell No. The books are truly incredible and worthy of serious envy. Dude in Hokkaido really outdid himself, they are CRAZY.

If you liked the Lee Marvin original, then (assuming you haven't done so) you might want to take a look at the inspiration, the Parker series, written by Donald E. Westlake under the pen-name Richard Stark. They're like the equivalent of a post-graduate introduction to the inner workings of pulling off a heist, as well as a window into the somewhat disturbing world of a high-functioning sociopath in the protagonist, Parker.

As a testimony to how talented he was, Westlake also created the humorous anti-hero John Dortmunder, who headlines a number of comic capers with an equally eccentric crew. Think of the "Oceans" series of heist films, but with a more blue collar and less glamorous cast - that's the world of Dortmunder. Both series worthy of a good read.

Honestly, I do not actually doubt his allegation. It could well be true. Sensible Israelis were regarding this hybrid, syncretic raver-drug trans-all culture as self-negating back into the early 1990s, and particularly predating on IDF vets, that is, people experiencing human conflict stress.

391 If one wants to buy gold or silver, (I sure don't), the best way to do it is in a brokerage account, via an Exchange Traded Fund (ETF). There are dozens of these. They hold the gold (or silver), & you can buy or sell with the click of a mouse.

Whatever happens to the price of gold (or silver) will instantly happen to the price of these ETFs. No commissions whatsoever, & an investor doesn't have to take physical delivery.

Anyone who buys precious metals right now is getting in at the top. I THINK you're supposed to buy low & sell high, not the other way around.

"let me know if your brokerage statement..."

If one is buying gold to prepare for Armageddon, then one is NOT buying gold it as an investment, i.e., in the hope of making a profit.

If one buys or sells physical gold, you DO pay a commission on both ends, unlike buying or selling a gold ETF-- where there are no commissions at all. Plus, you have to pay to store it somewhere (bonded warehouse; safe deposit box) unless you want to assume the risk of not doing so.

Thanks for clearing that up. But much like this business of Chosen People, I do not consider human life 'sacred'.

498 Well since nobody brought it up.
In the context of a belief in Energy as a Thing: how does one then relate to It? It's not 'God', Einstein believed anyone personifying It as God to be 'infantile'.
If everything is All, if All is All, then there is no individual Thing.
There can be no truly separate Things, any separation is a cruel lie. There can be no genders, not even species.
But then it results in a closed system: if there is only propulsive Energy, what put it into motion? To harbor an Energy belief is to believe in the Perpetual Motion Machine.

I've been dealing with this, as I am a very dedicated monotheist, coping with another person struggling to rectify a Cosmic Energy belief with a Christian monotheistic belief in the immortality of an individual soul. He can't do it.
To be honest, as there are all kinds of Jew Shit going on on this site lately, the overwhelming majority of modern 'jews' do not believe in monotheism and I owe them precisely nothing.

The Moon's orbit is known. And known well. They know the Moon's orbit to millimeter precision now, thanks to lunar laser ranging. The Moon is within a few millimeters, the margin of error, of where General Relativity predicts it should be. Mr. Newton was good, but he wasn't right there. Uncle Al got it right (to at least millimeter level).

At any time, the lunar orbit can be approximated as a Keplerian ellipse, but the orbital parameters change with time, due to the complex perturbations.

Keplerian = an ellipse what Kepler described.

Now, Kepler figured out the motions of the planets were ellipses around the Sun. This was well before Newton, who showed that an inverse square gravitational force would produce such orbits.

Kepler figured this out observationally, watching the planets move. Newton provided the theoretical "reason" for this later.

Everything someday will be gone except silence
The Earth will be quiet again

Left as the memory of men
There will be no survivor my friend

To describe such an ellipse in 3 dimensions, you need 6 parameters, as these are the classical Keplerian orbital elements.

They are 'a' = semi-major axis, and 'e' = eccentricity. e = 0 is a circle, and 'a' would then be the radius of the circle. That defines an ellipse in a plane.

Now, for the orientation in 3D space, you need two, more , the inclination 'i', and the longitude of the ascending node, capital omega.

Now, the remaining two are the argument of periapsis, lower case omega, and the "true anomaly", theta or nu.

Those 6 define an orbit precisely in 3D space.

"Anomaly" sounds cool, but it basically means "angle" in this context. Those are the standard parameters. There are others, pick any six independent ones. There are other such "anamolies" you can use that replace some of the other terms. Mean anomaly and eccentric anomaly being two.

The place doesn't work as an amalgam or a confederacy, only as The United States. We have 248 years to show that. And along the way there's a lot of examples of us meeting and prevailing over issues even more serious than the current mess.

In fact, you could say it's become our heritage to continue the struggle of our predecessors to ensure our Republic endures.

618 Wow -- over 600 comments?

Morning to all you insomaniacals! 'Tis 72 and humid here, not much wind. I know I should go work out, but I really don't feel up to it. If I don't, I'll have to go tomorrow and one more day this week.

I love "Moon River" by Mancini. But his "Peter Gunn Theme," and his wonderfully discordant and disturbing score for Wait Until Dark are classics too. The story goes that one of the musicians on the recording session for the WuD score told him that she hated playing it, it unsettled her so. That was when he knew he'd gotten it right.

I used to have an album of his with his take on one of the themes from the Clint Eastwood spaghetti Westerns, "For a Few Dollars More" or "A Fistful of Dollars," prob. the former. I wish I could find it again.

Nor did I, Skip, but here we are.

The CBD gummies are helping me sleep pretty solidly, but not much longer -- I'm still clocking about 5.5 to 6 hours a night -- and I'm feeling a little more sluggish when I do get up. Exercise usually clears that fog away. But I have to kick myself into going out and doing said exercise.

I've got the monthly staff meeting today, and for some harebrained reason everybody wanted to do it in person at a building about ten minutes' walk away from my office. Gah.

627 I, upon consideration, am pleased to say that I have never been in a monthly meeting of any kind.

In all modesty, I think this is a Plus.

628 Gawd, I do not miss working!

10- (sometimes 12-) hour shifts... plus! all the shopping and cooking. UGH.

6 hours sleep a night during the workweek, if I was lucky.
