  Double idiocy

The warmongers are getting excited about a new highway that China is building to the NK border. They see it as a route for tanks and troops, which would "start WW3".

Stupid. China has plenty of ways to invade and destroy NK by land or sea or air. A new road means TRADE.

This could be seen as an either-or proposition aimed at Kim. You can join the Silk Road or you can die. We're ready for both. You pick.

It wouldn't "start WW3". In fact full Chinese control of NK would damp down the war fires, because idiot Trump would be deprived of a target. Deepstate is NOT going to destroy China because China is our factory and our banker. Deepstate is too busy destroying America, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Ukraine, and a hundred other countries that have no value to Deepstate.

  Underpromoting

As tiresomely abovementioned, I no longer listen to official "news" or "entertainment" from either "side". I sometimes use the local money-talk station for noise because it tends to skip the usual "sides". For instance, the chartist types often use astrology to analyze the market instead of trying to parse Ben and Janet's infinitely evil word salad.

The PSAs on the station are astonishingly old. Some have been running constantly for 26 years. One mentions the Department of Health, Education And Welfare, which was renamed in 1983. That's OLD.

So a brand-new PSA on a meaningful topic is salient. A new PSA from physical therapists advocates exercise as a counterforce to opioid addiction.

This is an unexpected approach to the problem, cleanly skipping the usual "sides". Best of all, it makes GOOD GODDAMN SENSE.

Checking out the reference mentioned in the ad, the APTA website mainly discusses the use of PT to manage physical pain so you don't need to get addicted to opioids in the first place.

Missing most of the point. The opioid epidemic is mainly about MENTAL pain, not muscle and ligament pain. I know from experience that exercise avoids and counteracts MENTAL pain. A therapist could help you break out of the positive-feedback spasm-loop of suffering and tension and inertia.

It's unusual for an organization to underpromote its own benefits!

  Vertical, not horizontal

Assange is pointing back to a discussion of his own motives by John Sexton in 2010.

Assange had written:
We can marginalise a conspiracy’s ability to act by decreasing total conspiratorial power until it is no longer able to understand, and hence respond effectively to, its environment. We can split the conspiracy, reduce or eliminating important communication between a few high weight links or many low weight links. Traditional attacks on conspiratorial power groupings, such as assassination, have cut high weight links by killing, kidnapping, blackmailing or otherwise marginalizing or isolating some of the conspirators they were connected to …
Sexton responded:
This is the intellectual foundation of his thoughts on leaks. If you break the links between conspirators, you decrease their control. The “traditional” way is to do this is to cut off the head of the snake, but what Assange is suggesting here is that technology has given him another way to accomplish the same goal. Call it the long tail of regime change. Instead of taking out one very high value conspirator, you could attempt to break the links between lots of low level conspirators by making them too paranoid to communicate.
This is a classic mob-breaking routine practiced by police for centuries, but it only works when there are two or three mobs of similar power AND when the police have power. Convince the leaders of Mob 1 that their low-level operators are disobedient; or vice versa convince the low-level operators that their leaders are switching sides. Observe the action. Mob 1 leaders will start to kill the operators. Some of the low-level dudes will flip and snitch because they see that the police can protect them from Mob 1 bosses. More generally the bosses of all mobs will break out of their closed loop and do unusual things which the cops can observe.

In reality the trick doesn't break the horizontal links between the low-level dudes; it breaks the vertical links from low to high. The employees no longer trust the boss to protect them from other mobs, and the bosses no longer trust their employees to follow orders.

The crucial variable, which Assange's analysis doesn't quite hit, is the presence of competing mobs.

The 2009 Climate Crime leak made a small but measurable difference because the low-level operators like journal editors were able to compare the behavior of the Mann Mob with non-criminal scientists. Journal editors are not innocent; they know how the science game works. They recognized that Mann's behavior toward journals was well beyond the normal bounds of ruthless competition, and they got stricter with the criminals.

The DNC leaks have been useless because there isn't a competing mob and there isn't a police force. For 40 years the Clinton Mob has been LITERALLY AND CONCRETELY KILLING EVERYONE WHO EVEN THINKS ABOUT COMPETING WITH THE CLINTON MOB OR PROSECUTING THE CLINTON MOB OR TESTIFYING AGAINST THE CLINTON MOB. Nobody wants to die, so nobody has tried to build up a competing mob, and no prosecutor has volunteered to die. There's no alternative source of power, no Witness Protection Program. Thus the links remain firm, even while Boss Hillary fulfills part of the pattern by running around the country bashing her subordinates. The subordinates bend over and take it because they have NOWHERE TO GO.

The DNC leaks have affected the thinking of ordinary people, but ordinary people have exactly zero power so they're not worth discussing.

= = = = =

We can see plenty of link-breaking at the larger scale of USA STRONG vs Russia, but this has nothing to do with leaks or tactics. The presence of a competing mob was SUFFICIENT to make the change.

As soon as Russia and China began setting up a SANE mob which allows its low-level operatives to SURVIVE AND THRIVE, our low-level operatives began to switch sides. Everyone is tired of the USA STRONG total obliteration approach. Normal mob leaders offer a rational behaviorist reward-punishment paradigm. Obey and prosper; or disobey and die. We're beyond all that. We're EXCEPTIONAL. We simply KILL everything EXCEPT Saudi and Israel. Now even Saudi and Israel are wary of being the exceptions to the total obliteration rule; they no longer trust our exceptionality. When a psychotic killer is on a roll, nobody is safe.

  Brits had it right

It's common in tech or mech fields to find British and American terminology overlapping in odd ways.

Here's one I hadn't noticed before. From the same 1935 magazine as the Hivac submini tube in previous item...



The flat-jawed clip is a bulldog and the sharp-jawed clip is a crocodile, which makes sense.

Americans call the flat-jawed version a crocodile and the sharp-jawed version an alligator, which doesn't make sense.

  Nibiruuuuuups

The city has finished redoing Crown St. At first it looked like they were only going to patch the worst spots, but in fact they turned the whole six block stretch into a perfectly smooth seamless asphalt carpet. Pretty.



The machines were still rumbling back and forth late last night, so there's a fair chance that I'm the first 'civilian' to walk the whole new surface. Meaningless but sort of momentarily nice, like those bucket list achievements that don't achieve anything. Being the first person with misspelled Chinese tattoos on both ankles to summit Everest.**

I'm not worried about buckets. I've been steadily producing software and graphic tools that help people to do art and science for 35 years, and I'll keep doing it until the last synapse fizzles out. It's a tiny and insignificant contribution to the world, but at least it's a net increase in order and value, not a net decrease or a net zero.

Speaking of new surfaces and meaningless discoveries, today is Nibiru 2, the day when the "world as we know it" will end.

Crown Street as I knew it has ended, and a new world of (the top three inches of) Crown Street has been born.

Is that all?

Enough for me.


= = = = =

** Language sidenote: Being the first person to climb Everest without calling the achievement "summiting" would be a real achievement. I don't have a problem with verbing a noun but I have a big problem with snobbing and arroganting a verb.

  Earlier than thought

I've been piddling around with submini tubes for a while. Credit for their invention goes to American tubemakers like Raytheon, who developed the size for onboard navigation and fusing in missiles and torpedos. Subminis became popular after the war in hearing aids and portable radios. Their reign was brief because transistors took over both duties around 1957. Russians continued using the subminis MUCH longer. Sputnik used subminis in its transmitter. Most of the NOS subminis on the market now are Russian, made in the '60s and '70s.

As usual the credit is wrong, and as usual in electronics the Brits got there first. An article in Practical Wireless in Oct 1935 shows a portable receiver built with subminis.

The British version may have been slightly larger than the WW2 Raytheon version. For dubious comparison, here's a picture from the 10/35 mag:



And here's my hand with a similarly familiar object and two of the postwar Raytheon subminis.



Best comparison is on the fingers. The Brit tube, leaving off the plugs, appears to span 1.8 fingers, while the Raytheon spans about 1.5 fingers. The Brit hand has fatter fingers than my hand, so the difference may be slightly greater.

In any case, these Brit tubes are NOT the 7-pin minis that were far more common in radios and TVs. The 7-pin covers about 2.8 of my fingers.



The Brit Hivac tubes are in between the sizes, but closer to the Raytheon submini.

  How it's supposed to work

Austria is holding a 'snap election' today, which shows how a Parliamentary system is SUPPOSED TO WORK.

From DW:
Austrians on Sunday began casting their ballots in snap elections that are being closely watched as a further gauge of rising populist sentiment in the European Union.

Although conservative Sebastian Kurz, 31, is forecast to win more than 30 percent of the vote with his revamped Austrian People's Party (ÖVP), the far-right, anti-immigration Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ) is considered a strong contender for second place and could thus be a possible coalition partner in a new government.

Kurz has taken some of the wind from the sails of the FPÖ under Heinz-Christian Strache by adopting similar positions on radically curbing immigration to those held by the far-right party. The FPÖ has thus been forced to try to shed its radical image, focusing instead on social issues, jobs and pensions in a bid to enter the mainstream.
Demonic DW portrays 'taking the wind from the sails' as a loss for the sane forces, but in fact this is how a sane attitude adjusts the government in a functional feedback loop. When the currently powerful party is failing to satisfy the needs of the country, a new party forms to carry the inhibitory signal. After the new party threatens to become a majority, the old party LEARNS FROM EXPERIENCE and adopts the message.

None of this could ever happen in USA STRONG. We lost the game in 1787 when we switched from Parliament to tyranny. The 1787 system is explicitly designed to avoid change and eliminate feedback. There is no mechanism for adaptation, no way to get rid of a bad leader, no incentive for a bad ruler to change his ways.

We had one brief exception in the '30s, when FDR acted as a one-man Parliament. He saw new parties developing under Huey Long and Father Coughlin and leftist labor unions, saw that they were ready and willing to work OUTSIDE the system, and 'took the wind from their sails' by doing the right thing. After FDR died the globalists regained full control and restored the fake "two" "party" setup, guaranteeing that no feedback or adjustment could ever break their monopoly, no president would ever do the right thing.

  Se-lu 14, Roussilon edition

Assange is driving home the point that CataLUnya provides a blueprint for other movements, even if it doesn't directly succeed.

I'm not convinced it was a necessary movement or a worthwhile goal, given the existing autonomy of CataLUnya, but I agree with the blueprint point.

Assange is treating it as a case study for Gandhian methods. It's not especially new in that department.

In my peculiar terms, CataLUnya formed a NEW blueprint for GETTING OUTSIDE THE PROBLEM to solve the problem. Half of the ethnic group lives in France, so the leaders of the half in Spain mobilized the French half to provide communication and printing services when Spain shut down services within its borders. This had the side effect of vectoring the French half toward revolution mode.

Any movement that stays INSIDE THE PROBLEM stands no chance of success. Best current example: Bitcoin is touted as a way to conduct transactions outside Deepstate. This is PRIMA FACIE DUMB. When you are EXCLUSIVELY RELYING ON NSA'S WEB to conduct business, you are DEEPER INSIDE the system than ordinary commerce with its mix of paper currency, paper checks and digital checks. You have NO EXTERNAL GROUND POINT, no way of verifying what happened after NSA alters or deletes your INTERNAL records.

The proper soLUtion always involves more paper and less computers.

  Math switchover

NatGeo article describes Viking burial garments embroidered with Arabic words for Allah and Ali.

This isn't entirely new; earlier finds indicated quite a bit of trade and mixing among the Northern tribes and Arabs.

Adopting part of a foreign religion without being conquered is EXTREMELY unusual.

From the start, tribal leaders have motivated US to fight THEM because THEM has the wrong god, or the wrong number of gods, or uses the wrong words to worship the same god, or says the words in a different way, or spells the words differently while saying them the same way.

In reality most wars are personal. A tribal leader is crazy Insatiable, so he gets addicted to conquering Deplorables. Conquering is addictive because it rarely works for long. Deplorables may not be ready for rape, but after the rape they get PRICKLY.

So the Insatiable, being Insatiable, has to find new Deplorables to rape. He usually knows that his people don't share his craziness, so he uses Resources or Religion as an understandable motivation.

WW1 and WW2 broke the pattern. In both cases the sides were thoroughly mixed in religion and ethnicity, and in both cases the Krauts and Japs stripped off the religious disguise to reveal pure tribal craziness.

In 1946 the leaders of US/UK donned their religious robes again. We were the Believers making war against the Atheists.

Appropriate for a digital age. Previous math wars had been 1 god vs 3 gods or 3 gods vs Lotsa gods. Now we were 1 or 3 gods, mainly led and fueled by the 1 god tribe, fighting against 0 gods.

After the 1989 Switchover the math switched while remaining digital. Now we are the atheists, the 0 gods side, fighting to kill all non-zero gods. Muslims are bad because they have 1, Russians are bad because they have 3. Some of the warleaders on our side are 3 gods types; for them, Russia is bad because it has the wrong logical symbol joining two of its 3 godparts. Ask Fatima about this. The 0 gods leaders are happy to have this slight symbolic disagreement, as long as the 3-ites keep pushing for war.

So those Vikings represent a peculiar exception to a nearly universal trend of history. Especially notable because the Vikings were pretty fair Insatiables, famous for taking over entire continents including this one.

= = = = =

Later thought: The embroidered letters might be indications of respect, but in context they look more like notches on a gun or medals on a uniform, indicating "I helped to ocnquer Allah and Ali." Burial symbols generally honor victory, not assimilation.

  Paying the price of freedom? No, it's the other way.

The commenters on a ZH article about the failure of cable TV got into some meaningful discussion along with the usual crap. One said:

I've actually calculated what I saved since I cut the cable: $20,000+. No joke.

Okay, let's try it. Fortunately I marked the moment when I unplugged the cable.

From August 2010 to now is 86 months. Eliminating cable TV saved $80 a month at that time. Presumably Comcast bills have gone up since then, but using $80 gives a total saving of $6880.

Pretty damn impressive. Since I live on $12K a year, that's about seven months of living. One extra month of income in each cable-free year. More importantly, it's 86 months of FREEDOM from the hard-wired toxic injection of TV.

Repooflicans love to squawk about Paying The Price Of Freedom. In fact you have to pay for slavery in the modern world. Freedom is cheaper.

Last month I wrote this set of pairings:
"Scientists" jail you for questioning "science".

Astrologers don't jail you for questioning astrology.


MDs force you to follow orders by withholding life-sustaining prescriptions. (In any other context this would be called extortion.)

Alternative doctors (naturopaths, chiropractors, etc) don't force you to do anything.


Social "scientists" design and operate torture chambers.

Psychics and faith healers don't.


Non-smokers jail you for smoking in the wrong place, which is pretty much every place.

Smokers don't jail you for not smoking.


Bankers jail you for using cash.

Goldbugs don't jail you for using debit cards.


Globalists bomb you for questioning the Empire.

Localists don't bomb you for being a globalist.

Yesterday I commented in detail on the "sonic attack" hate-hoax, more or less dismissing it but remaining objective because this is my proper area of expertise.

Later ZH had a headline: This Is What Americans Heard During The Mysterious Cuban Sonic Attacks, And Why Experts Don't Buy It

Yup, I'm an expert and I don't buy it.

Some experts in acoustics and phonetics are in fact working for NSA and Apple and Google. Their jargon is easy to recognize in the NSA stuff released by Wikileaks, and their work is easy to see elsewhere.

In terms of the pairings above, does that make me an astrologer? Yes. If an analogous title existed I'd happily use it. (Faith acoustician? Phonologer?)

The important distinction in the pairings above is not the professional title but the willingness to serve power. The first group in each pair is willing to use their expertise or passion aggressively. The second group is not willing to serve power. They are defending people against power, lending their knowledge and skills to people who are just trying to live an ordinary life.

  Health attack? Or just scrambler?

Somebody has published a wave that is supposedly the Cuba "sonic attack" or hate-hoax. Not much info about how this was recorded, if in fact it was recorded.

It seems to have a 7100 cps peak, amplitude modulated randomly at a much slower near-syllabic rate. It doesn't bother my ears.

Spectrum of the original:



Piece of the waveform, showing the modulation in speech-fundamental range:



The MP3 sampling rate is 44k, so 7k is getting up into 'aliased' territory which makes the spectrum sort of dubious.

Slowing it down drastically so that the carrier is about 300 cps:

Slowed-down segment

This does bother my ears.

In this form you can hear that the modulation is basically a beat between two nearly identical carriers, shifting ever so slightly in freq.

Without any context I'd guess that this was a scrambler, using something like FSK plus a random component to create the audio equivalent of a one-time pad cipher.

Since we don't have any context, that's as far as I can go. This could have been a VLF radio signal emitted by the embassy, which was rectified and resonated accidentally by some metal surfaces. Or it could be an intentional audio signal.

7k is not an especially meaningful freq in terms of cochlear function or auditory processing. It's well above all the freqs we need or analyze for speech. Landline telephones cut off at 3k, and AM radio cuts off at 5k, without losing intelligibility. The only nearby landmark is 8k, which resonates at the first curve of the cochlea. Long-term exposure to 8k damages the hair cells more than other freqs, and a typical noise-induced hearing problem has a peak loss at 8k.

But this would be counterproductive if you were trying to drive the enemy crazy. The damage produced by long-term exposure to 8k would gradually make the victims more immune to the signal, not more sensitive to it.

If I had the job of driving Yanks crazy with audio I'd go the other way, down to 20 or 30 cps. A subsonic rumble makes you jumpy and edgy without being consciously heard. You don't know it's there until it stops, when you suddenly feel relieved and relaxed.

  Antichrist doing what antichrists do

Antichrist Bergoglio is getting down to business. He wants to revise official "Church" policy to forbid capital punishment. Loyally obeying his satanboss Soros, he also wants to eliminate EVERY form of effective punishment.....
There is an additional factor of interest for American readers. In 2014, Pope Francis said that the use of long-term solitary confinement is a kind of torture. This position is also held by many psychologists, who have noted that solitary incarnation can have a profoundly negative impact on mental health. Long-term solitary confinement is the most prominent alternative to the death penalty proffered by American corrections officials, especially for habitual unmanageable inmates.
So it's not really a question of morality. It's just a question of who's giving the orders. When Deepstate is paying the bill, harsh treatment is godlike and angelic. When civilization is giving the orders, harsh treatment is unthinkable.

Weaponizing criminals is a major piece of the Sorosian project, and now Antichrist has officially enlisted the ENTIRE CHURCH in this part of the Sorosian project. He already enlisted the ENTIRE CHURCH in weaponizing migrants.

At some points in history the Church acted as a counterforce to evil. Now it's one of the strongest pluponents of evil, adding the mass (lit/fig) and momentum of millions of idiot followers to the acceleration of wickedness.

Later: Noticed the typo by NCR: solitary incarnation. Does this mean the prisoners turn into Jesus when in solitary? If that's the case, the "church" should want more of it.

The yappers and advertisers on money-talk shows and websites are constantly trying to impress us with how hard they work. They brag about having 12 careers at once and sleeping 30 minutes a day.

I'm not impressed. Either you're simply lying, or you're telling us that you don't know how to manage money.

The goal of working hard is to reach the point when you don't have to work hard. If you have a valuable skill, and you know how to live simply and avoid gambling, you can reach that point fairly soon.

Why should I listen to your advice about managing money when you don't know how to manage your own?

  Moodquake verified

Yesterday around 4PM I acquired one of those sudden dark moods that sometimes come 18 hours before a nearby quake. I posted a short item here, then deleted it. (Title was "Just for the record", if anyone feels like checking the Google cache.) Writing then deleting can help to get rid of a mood. Didn't help; good sleep cured the mood.

What about nearby quakes? Yes. This time it wasn't just a trash bin tipping over next to my window!

PNSN shows a long swarm of significant quakes south of Yakima, starting at noon today. 20 hours after the mood started.



The location doesn't seem to be special; it's not near Hanford and not near active volcanos.

10 hours later, the swarm resumes:


 
  RT is Bernie, aberreedux

RT has an article on the death of a Russian faith healer who became prominent in the later years of the Soviet era.

The tone of the article shows the REAL attitude of RT, not the bigoted ASSUMPTIONS about RT. In fact RT agrees with Western 'progressives' on nearly everything except hating Russia... and in this case it comes damn close to hating Russia.
It’s the height of Perestroika. Old certainties are fading fast, not least faith in the Soviet healthcare system, free and available, but short on new generation drugs, high-tech equipment and magic. Glasnost allows the vacuum to be filled at speed. There are still only five channels – if you live in a big enough city – but they are no longer exclusively broadcasting repetitive party propaganda. Chumak really is a breath of fresh air, yet he also receives authority from being on stuffy state television. ...

The magic could not last. Chumak managed to monetize his gift by mass-producing “charged” water** and creams, but by the time he and his ilk were officially banned by the Ministry of Health for “advocating pseudoscience” in 1993, interest was on the wane anyway. One part of the audience cringed at their earlier selves rushing to fill jars in time, another moved on to a new generation of psychics, who made corpses levitate or claimed that they were reincarnations of Jesus, rendering Chumak’s persona staid, his magic underpowered. Chumak did not retire to penury, but returned to playing to his core fans in smaller venues, and charging clinically diagnosed patients hundreds of dollars for one-to-one healing sessions – much like working psychics around the world.
Note that the ban came in 1993 during the Sorosian period, not during the Soviet period. Who's the bigger atheist?

RT clearly doesn't respect the ordinary Russians who were seeking transcendence. Sounds a lot like US media or US 'progressives'.

  Third thought on CataLUnya

My initial response to CataLUnya's independence was strongly positive. On second thought I backed off and tempered the response, remembering the Sorosian pattern of color revolutions.

I'm still not sure if it's Soros, but now I'm sure it's an unnecessary waste of energy. CataLUnya has NOT been oppressed or squashed in recent years. It already has vastly more autonomy than any of our "states".

If the split could be accomplished smoothly, like Czechia and Slovakia splitting in 1991, it would be worth the trouble. But Spain isn't going to allow an amicable divorce. War is needed, and war is NOT worth the trouble in this case.

  Corporate personhood again

Earlier I made the point that proper leftists should be USING the idea that a corporation is a person, instead of trying to delete the idea. If a corporation has the same rights and responsibilities as a person, then you can prosecute a company for murdering other companies through LBOs or regulatory capture. LBO is direct murder, regulatory control is murder through a hitman impersonating a policeman.

Using the same literal connection might help to understand a couple of puzzles in recent years.

Puzzle 1: Why did insurance companies and pension funds allow ZIRP to happen? Insurers and pensions, taken together, are larger than the banks who gained from ZIRP. They have plenty of lobbyists. They could see EASILY that ZIRP would destroy them.

Puzzle 2: Why did insurers allow Obamacare to happen? Predicting business risk is their CORE SKILL. Why didn't they use it?

Puzzle 3: Why did football companies encourage their players to insult their OWN AUDIENCE for a year before they finally figured out the problem?

In personhood terms, all three are intentional corporate SUICIDE. Why does a company ... or a whole class of companies .... voluntarily choose to lose its own profitability?

The standard myth of capitalism says that corporate persons are cold rational machines, acting solely to increase their own profits, while human beings are squishy irrational randomizers, acting on the basis of momentary hormone secretions.

I don't know if that was ever true, but it's completely backwards now.

Living people are no longer willing to die for a cause. All the causes that formerly commanded love and devotion have betrayed us and fucked us over and over and over and over. Fuck them.

This rational cynicism doesn't apply among corporate persons, who are still romantically ready to die for SOMETHING. In these specific cases the SOMETHING seems to be Deepstate, but I don't think that's necessarily the only True Faith or True Lover.

  Thanks, EPA genocidists!

Via KHQ, today's message from the Natl Fire "Protection" Assn....

Did you know fire is actually getting faster? 40 years ago we had as much as 17 minutes to escape a fire, today we have less than 3.

No surprise. EPA first removed asbestos from buildings, then switched every single fireproof material to an incendiary material. Their most Nobel achievement of all is the "green" cladding of high-rise buildings with ROCKET FUEL.

EPA's mission, like the rest of the Federal Dysgovernment, is to exterminate all Deplorables and infinitely enrich the Tribe. Maximum vulnerability, zero self-defense.

No, wait. I should remove the quotes from "Protection" above. The name is grammatically proper as it stands. The National Fire Protection Association protects fire from all attempts to extinguish it.

  What happens when you PAY ATTENTION.....

Two days ago I noted that the kids in this neighborhood are playing outside more, not spending all their time welded to the iPhone. This change forced my attention because the outside play is NOISY and ANNOYING. I had to stop and think: Which is better for the kids? Noisy and annoying exercise in the sunlight, or constant consumption of Deepstate toxin? Easy choice, so I stifled my natural GET OFF THE GODDAMN LAWN response.

Well, what about adults? For many years ABSOLUTELY EVERYBODY was welded to their phones ALL THE TIME. No matter what secondary activity they might be accidentally doing, their primary duty was the phone. It was a 100% monopoly ... except me.

I had the vague sense that the monopoly wasn't quite as monopolous now, so I paid attention on this morning's store walk.

Some of the drivers weren't visible because of tinted windows, so the visible and countable sample was about 30 drivers, 20 shoppers, 10 walkers, 5 Golden Ringtones.

ABSOLUTELY NOBODY was using a cellphone. NOT ONE.

At least among this one-time sample, the perfect monopoly has become a perfect zeropoly.

Astonishing.

  The Godfather IV

Latest O'Keefe video is a stunner. This Dudich dude portrays himself as a major player who knows all the important powers and goes underground for FBI and escapes from all conflict of interest problems.... and then the story turns out to be mostly false.

1. Reminds me of the "Navy Seal" characters who were common in the '80s. Some of them had actually served in Vietnam, some hadn't been anywhere near the Army or Navy. All of them made up long detailed stories of drama and bravery that sounded good until you checked them.

2. Or, was Dudich trying to discredit the undercovers? Did he think he could destroy them by handing them a batch of crap which they would then automatically use? If that was his intention, he failed. The O'Keefe undercovers blew his "strategy" by doing something that a journalist can't possibly imagine. They checked the facts.

In either case he shows us that journalists are infinitely evil and infinitely brainless. A unique and historic combination. We already knew it, but it's SO FUCKING DELICIOUS to hear the evidence in their own brainless evil words.
 
  Totally irrelevant but weird



1927 ad for a small maker (or maybe rebrander) of tubes. Why is Dan Vers two words? It's not just a typo, because it appears in the ad and on the box. It feels like a pronunciation device to avoid confusion, like employER and employEE. But if Danvers is the confusER, what is the confusEE?

Later: Was this Champion's way of coding its responses? Spell the town differently in different magazines? Seems possible, but a much easier trick was to add a 'department' code to different ads, as in these Billboard ads:


What did the Post Office do with mail sent to Dan Vers, Mass? POs in Mass were probably accustomed to this oddity, but a postmaster in Kansas would simply return the letter for ambiguous address.

  Post-non-euclidean tyranny

Modern tyrants, from Robespierre to Lincoln to Stalin to Hitler, were careful to keep a Euclidean framework around their genocides. Every action was nominally legal and logically consistent. The tyrant could point to a nominally proper trial or legislative action that fully justified mass murder or mass torture or destroying half the country.

Euclidean tyranny.

Today's tyrants have gone beyond Euclid, and even beyond the non-Euclidean tradition. Lobachevsky and Riemann were also consistent within the bounds of their own systems.

From Soros to Nudelman to Bernanke to Rob Ferguson to Orrick The Third, modern American tyrants have abandoned consistency and logic. No need for frameworks, just kill and kill and kill and kill and kill and kill and kill and kill and kill. Obliterate the universe and more and more and more and more. Enrich the rich and more and more and more and more.

Ferguson and Orrick The Third exemplify the cutting edge of post-non-Euclidean "laws". Ferguson was in office when Obama passed most of the executive orders that Trump is claiming to undo. Ferguson didn't complain when Obama made the orders. Now he's suing every time Trump pretends to modify the orders. Complete violation of logic. If you think a president has the power to make an order, then logically you MUST agree that a president has the power to modify the same order. Orrick The Third stated explicitly and openly that enforcing existing law is illegal when Trump is the enforcer.

This is just raw personal BIGOTRY. Nothing else. Everything was OK when Obama did it. The same actions are NOT OK when Trump pretends to do them, because we hate Trump.

Formalized laws were originally meant to escape from personal loves and hates and cults and bigotries. Laws and courts were supposed to be neutral arbiters, removed from the heat of passion and hormones and wicked insanity.

We have now officially escaped from logic and law.

If you have enough spare blood pressure, watch some of these videos made by TVW, the Wash state version of C-Span. The videos are meant as guides and inspiration for school "civics" teachers. I don't have enough spare blood pressure to watch them steadily, but a quick skip shows what they're doing. It's like a DNC donors conference. Arrogant smug smiles and nods when Our Lord Obama is mentioned. Growls and boos when anything remotely associated with ordinary human sanity and morality is mentioned.

= = = = =

Slightly later thought: This abandonment is basically a good thing, IF sane and moral people can use it properly.

Due process and legal formalities made it impossible to ask the basic moral questions. This Guardian article about strictly Euclidean torture, celebrated and theorized by social "scientists", shows the problem. The Guardian protects Deepstate by asking whether the proof is properly constructed. Was this torture legal within the bounds of various Geneva Conventions?

Wrong focus. Now that we are free from all bounds of logic and theory, we can revert to experimentally determined Natural Law and ask the basic question. Was the Iraq war MORAL or NECESSARY? And the instant and immediate answer is NO. In 1990 and again in 2003 we were attacking a country that had not attacked us. IMMORAL and UNNECESSARY.

Natural law approves harsh methods when used for SELF-DEFENSE. If we had been torturing the Deepstate officials who set up 9/11 as a "problem" to create more "problem-solving" tyranny, every imaginable method would be justified to find the truth. But we weren't torturing CIA officials. Instead, CIA officials were torturing Arabs who had responded to the CIA sting.

Hire hitmen, then torture the hitmen after they follow your orders. Infinite evil by any standard, even by normal criminal standards.

= = = = =

Putting it another way: With modernity gone, the choice is post-modern vs pre-modern. You can't get back to modern because the structures needed to keep modern intact have been parasitized and converted to post-modern. The only way to ESCAPE from the structures is pre-modern. Old Testament.

  American all the way down

Michael Pollan attempts to explain the American front yard and gets everything wrong.

He starts:

"We like grassland. It reminds us of the savannah. We evolved on the savannah. We came down out of the trees and we like open land. Open land is safe. So there may be a genetic proclivity..."

Every sentence is nonsense. Some of us like grassland, some don't. It doesn't remind us of the savannah because there's no reason to assume we ever lived there. We didn't evolve. All the evidence shows that we were designed. We didn't come down out of the trees; it's more likely that the apes went up into the trees because trees are safe. Open land is NOT safe. That's why the apes went into the trees and the humans went into caves and holes and huts. Huts are safe.

"Your front yard belongs to the community."

The only firmly correct statement. Most front yard area is legally street, effectively owned by the city. You can't use it freely but you have to maintain it to city standards. If the city wants to plant a killer in "your" front yard you can't cut it down.

"It's so exposed that nobody spends any time there. ... They all stay in the back yard."

Sorta halfway right, in some places and times. Looking back at my own life... The first place I remember is Sooner City, a wartime company town that was all commons with no streets. I played everywhere. Parents then moved to a small town where I continued to play everywhere, from the river to downtown. From age 6 to 16 we lived in the usual suburbia, and in those situations the front yards were off limits as Pollan describes. I continued to play everywhere, from the creek to the zoo to Cranky Old Lady Goodnow's farm to the cemetery, but not in the front yard.

Right now, in this Deplorable neighborhood, the kids play everywhere just as I did at that age. They're mainly in the street because that's where the basketball goal is, and they slop over** into front yards.

"If you were a Martian, you'd ask.."

Fuck Martians. No need to go that far. If you were a South American or an Englishman or a New Yorker you'd ask. All of those aliens are accustomed to houses or walled compounds packed tightly together and jammed directly against the street. The North American plan is unfamiliar to all of those aliens.

Pollan attributes the front yard to the suburban dream. Nope, it came LONG before suburbia. It was already typical in 1813, as described in Brackenridge's Views of Louisiana, here talking about the St Louis area:



Who else would be familiar with the plan? Injuns. Here's a reconstructed Osage village. Common area with paths, front yards on each hut. Just like Sooner City, or rather vice versa.

In other words, the North American front yard isn't "evolved", it isn't fucking Sabertooth Tiger, it isn't British, it isn't South American, it isn't Martian, it isn't Suburban. It's North American all the way down.

Pollan's title calls the front yard "Odd and completely unnatural". To a NYC Martian like Pollan it's odd. To a North American of any era it's COMPLETELY NATURAL.


= = = = =

** Now I understand why Cranky Old Lady Goodnow was cranky. But I ask myself which is better for the kids. Better to run around all day in the sun and fresh air, shouting and slopping into yards? Or better to sit in a dark room hard-wired to the iPhone? The answer is easy, so I restrain the Cranky.

  Instant atavism

UD has an item about supposedly atavistic features. It's a dubious idea in animals, but it definitely happens in cars. And I'm not talking about nostalgic or ironic retro designs that attempt to recapture or mock cars of previous generations.

Here's a simultaneous atavism by three different carmakers, returning partly to the old after two or three years of the new.

Between '37 and '41, everyone except Packard got rid of the vertical 'radiator', which hadn't actually been the radiator since '31 or so. It was a quick and broad change, merging both front fenders into a horizontal shelf and placing the grille below the shelf.

And then: Just after completing the vert-to-horiz change, three carmakers restored part of the verticality.



Left is '41, right is '42.

Olds brought back an upper part AND added a strange oval middle part between top and bottom. Robin Jones, who designed this bizarre mess, later moved to Ford and repeated the mess in the Edsel's full frontal presentation aka pussygrille. You'd think someone in Ford management would have noticed his previous work and kept him away from the grille. (Stop me! Don't let me grille again!)

Lincoln, which had pioneered the horizontal form, fell back to an attractive but perhaps overdone V+H combo.

Nash, after emphasizing the horizontal shelf, opened up the 'radiator' again. Not as pretty as the Lincoln to my eyes. Nash improved the proportions after the war, but would have done better to leave the '41 as is.
 
  Same hot water, same point

Some local sports figure got in hot water for saying
Women don't know football- most guys barely do. Stop coming into male spaces and demanding respect.. guys care about the substance of things not the appearence. Just because networks like a sexy sideline reporter for you to look at doesn't mean cam is sexist for questioning the authenticity of her game knowledge- he was laughing because she was fed that question like most of her kind are. If women are so knowledgeable with a game they can't play let them do play by play or color commentary.. but no, and women don't even see that it's not cam but the network that's sexist, or just can't lie about the truth. Women don't really know the game- they are incapable.
Part of the hot water is valid, part isn't. "Incapable of knowing" goes too far, but the rest makes sense.

Nothing new about the hot water. Volney Mathison, discussed often here, was a shipboard radio operator in the earliest days of wireless, then wrote fiction and non-fiction about shipboard radio for several years. One of his 1922 articles brought some hot water from a similar intentional misunderstanding:



What he really said was completely sensible and stated with perfect clarity:



The point is simple. Warrior mode is not the same as farm mode or office mode, and the warrior type is innately different from the farm or office type.

In the crudest sense, women are the spoils of war. Slightly more civilized, warriors are fighting with men and against men, and they're fighting for women.

Football is a trivial waste of effort, but nevertheless football is performed by warrior types operating in warrior mode.

  Corner of SE 14 and Cinderella ... redux

After noting yet again the decline of this neighborhood, which is aided by the copkilling Insatiable Aliens currently in charge of this fucked former "city", I happened to bump into some videos that explain how another neighborhood STOPPED declining.

Three years ago I wrote a sort of tribute to the Shidler-Wheeler area in OKC. I had lived there briefly in the '70s and loved the place even though I was going through a messy phase at the time. In 2014 the area seemed to be intentionally recovering, but I didn't know why.

= = = = = START REPRINT FROM 2014

After mentioning emptied-out neighborhoods in previous entry, I googlestreeted a couple of areas that I remembered from OKC. Have they been emptied yet?

I'd previously googlestreeted them about a year ago. At that time they looked perfectly familiar, unchanged from 1972. Ready to be emptied. No other destiny.

When I "drove" through them this morning, I thought: Whoa there! Did I type the wrong address?

No. It's the same address, but sometime between 2007 and 2014 it was magnificently gentrified.



Above is 2007, below is Aug 2014. This is typical (though not universal) of the whole neighborhood around Byers and SE14. The houses aren't any bigger, but they're smartly renovated. Presumably some of the occupants are new, but I doubt that everyone was forced to evacuate. So the old occupants are pulling up to fit the new standard.

OKC has broken the boom-bust ratchet! Instead of ripping out the smallest shacks, transform the shacks into cottages ... Then the cottage people will come ... Note the little hipster car! ... And the shack people will either leave or rediscover how to be cottage people ... Which most of them were at one time.

THIS IS THE CORRECT ALTERNATIVE TO EMPTIED-OUT NEIGHBORHOODS.

Double Bravo to OKC for doing it RIGHT!


= = = = =

Later: Presumably most of the work was done by individual contractors and flippers, but the results have a coordinated 'look'. This implies city planning or urging. Those brick mailboxes were starting to appear in the 2007 googleview, and they're all over the neighborhood in the newer picture. They must have been a city effort to give the neighborhood an instinctive and distinctive identity. OKC has been running a clever and productive neighborhood-identity program for quite a while, but I don't see any references to this well-defined little area in online discussions of the program.

When I lived there, the 'perceived boundaries' were the river on the north, SE17 on the south, High on the east, and Central on the west. I did most of my shopping along Central and only occasionally went over to Capitol Hill.

Aha. Here's the only specific description online. The document is a 1994 survey for historic landmarks, which looks down its haughty nose and sniffs:

Shidler-Wheeler #1 district is primarily residential, consisting of bungalows, Folk Victorian, and shotgun houses. Included is a row of brick-veneer shotgun houses on SE15. The area is approximately from SE10 to SE15 and S Byers to S Laird, comprising most of the Central Addition platted in 1908. Many of the houses were built prior to the 1920's; however, many have been drastically altered, some demolished, and a number of inappropriate infill buildings constructed. The survey determined that the area no longer meets the criteria for National Register listing.

Drastically altered? Inappropriate infill? Hmph to you too, assholes.

Infill is a city's salvation.

= = = = = END REPRINT FROM 2014

Now the video made by the organization responsible for the recovery:



Nice to see LOCAL people trying to restore a place they love.

  Big neighborhood note

4001 W Crown is FINALLY getting sold FOR SURE. After 20 years of vacancy and decline, and one year of inconclusive indications, there's an actual Windermere Realty sign in front of the building.

Here's the Zillow ad:



Looks like city has done some planning and zoning to get it sold. In fact city has already repaired sidewalk at corner, as part of major permafrost repair of Crown St necessary because city failed to use



on street. Still can't tell if city actually bought place.

110K pretty steep price for plain land in declining neighborhood.

  The real problem

This isn't a new thought, just a new emphasis on an old thought.

We worry about jobs being lost to automation and outsourcing and migrant invasions.

Automation isn't a serious problem right now. The other two are deadly serious, but all three are instantiations of one BASIC problem.

The stock market.

The REAL problem shows up neatly in an article on Meg Whitman's murder of HP.

One number tells the story:
CEO Meg Whitman has been redoing the company since she took the job in 2011, after she lost out in her efforts to become governor of California. At the time, Hewlett-Packard, as it was still called, had 350,000 employees. After serial layoffs came some big divestitures: PCs, printers, business services, and some software units had to go. It is now down to about 52,000 employees. After the layoffs, it will be closer to 47,000 – a mere shadow of the former Hewlett-Packard. And it will continue to shrink
From 350K down to 50K in SIX YEARS. 300K good high-paying jobs lost.

Not from outsourcing; HP had already offshored most of its factories. Not from automation; HP was already using as much automation as it could. Purely from greed. Meg is killing a company to satisfy Goldman. She's transforming a MAKER into a SELF-EATING SUICIDE MACHINE.

We need to eliminate the stock market in all of its forms and variants, and we need to eliminate central banks.

= = = = =

God is trying to tell us something. It's a perfect analogy. You think you can drive a number up through the roof by generating counterfeit "value". Your math and models and software tell you that you can drive numbers up exponentially. Nature don't do exp.

Sooner or later the generator burns the building.

  That's not what it's all about, Alfie.

As usual the Nobel Evil Prize is given to a champion of genocide, some pointless theatrical "anti-nuke" Sorosdemon.

I've been blaming the Scandinavian lunatics who give the prize, but we really should be blaming old Alfie Nobel himself for misunderstanding human nature.

He invented dynamite, which has saved lots of lives in mining and construction because it's a firmly CONTROLLABLE explosive. At the end of his life he got squishy after seeing that his tool could be used for other purposes. He bequeathed his fortune for prizes to the best DECONTROLLER of violence, and the prize committee has followed his wishes.

What he misunderstood: Bullies and psychopaths will ALWAYS find a weapon. Cutting the availability of weapons only hurts the victims.

Bullies can always invent new ways to kill and hurt people. There's no limit to innovative disruption.

You can't stop a bully by limiting weapons, but you CAN stop a bully by convincing him that EVERY POSSIBLE VICTIM is ready to kill him as soon as he starts a fight. The proper goal is TOTAL PROLIFERATION, not non-proliferation.

= = = = =

Stupid linguistic sidenote: The above title is unreadable by conservatives and Fox News viewers. Translating it into Neoconese: "That is not that, about which, it all is, Mr Nobel."

  Was that a quake? Yes, but not this one

A while ago my afternoon nap was invaded by a THUMP. The dream-scripter rewrote it as somebody bumping against a couch, so as usual it was hard to interpret.

After waking up I 'replayed' the sound. For once it didn't seem like a doorknock; it could have been either a tree falling or one of those THUMP-style earthquakes that were common in 2001.

Tree falling is possible because there's some wind ... but it's sort of 20G35, not really enough to knock things down, and a quick look outside showed no obvious problems.

Well, what about earthquake? Bingo.



Well, not really Bingo. That was yesterday. Close to Spokane, the same range of magnitude as the 2001 thumpers. If a similar quake happened yesterday, it could have indicated the start of a similar swarm. But today's thump wouldn't show on PNSN yet. Their reports aren't immediate.

I'm dubious because I'm not seeing any reports in SpokaneNews. A quake should have been heard by most of the town if it was heard at all.

In more detail, yesterday's quake is listed as 'probable explosion', which should have generated some news. 2.5 should have been audible, but I didn't hear it, and no reports in SpokaneNews yesterday either.

= = = = =

Next day: Likely candidate is neighbor's trash bin. Wind wasn't nearly strong enough to knock over normal trash bins, but the neighbor had stuffed the top end of a yardwaste bin with long leafy branches. All sail, no keel. Hardly a seismic event except that the bin was 10 feet from my bedroom window. That'll do until something better comes along.

The mediademons and Congressdemons are consumed with a delusional bloodfrenzy about Trump being a servant of Russia.

They're right!

When Trump does what the mediademons WANT, he serves Russia.

At this moment the "news" says that Hillary wearing a "Trump" mask is preparing to break Obama's treaty with Persia.

Until this moment, Persia was trying to form a two-way symbiosis, setting up contracts and relationships with USA STRONG and EU companies that had been prohibited before Obama's opening. Persia was open to dealing with our side.

Now Hillary wearing a "Trump" mask has FORCED Persia to become a pure ally of Russia, thus strengthening Russia's power.

Hillary wearing a "Trump" mask is serving Russia because he's serving YOU, monstrous infinitely evil fuckheads.

Thanks, Ralph!

Segwayed:

All of this segwayed into the meeting with the leasing agent afterwards.

This makes more sense both orthographically and semantically than segued. Segue comes from Italian, originally meaning it follows or here's what happens next. This is the only instance in English where gue is pronounced /gwe/. All other instances come from French, where it's typically at the end of a word and pronounced /g/. A single exception typically disappears.

We use segue to mean a shift or transfer of action, so a vehicle is an appropriate image.

Deep-seeded:

Wonderful bonapropism from a sharp article by Eric Sammons.

Institutional bias is another reason questions regarding Vatican II itself are censored. The Church and its supporting institutions have heavily invested themselves on the idea that Vatican II was beneficial to the Church. We are a “Vatican II Church.” To question that is to put a deep-seeded worldview in peril.

Deep-seeded makes VASTLY more sense than deep-seated.

Web search shows that this isn't a fresh coinage, it's an active change. Deep-seeded is quickly replacing deep-seated. Grammarians are defending the older because it's the only form in the dictionary. The newer is more understandable, more evocative and more logical, so it deserves to take over.

= = = = =


Smither:

Another bonaprop from a similar source.

After all, this is a Pope who has been perfectly happy to canonize his favorite confrère as a birthday present to himself: who is content to govern outside the constitutional structure provided him; who appears perfectly willing to let the men supposed to be his closest advisors say what they will about his leadership, while keeping his own counsel when it comes to decision-making; and who understands, without either a shadow of doubt or a smither of ambiguity, that he is in charge.

Can't tell if it's an intentional backformation from smithereens or just an accident. In either case it's an excellent coinage.

Type-o:

In an unusually realistic ZH article on the bitcoin scam:

There’s a token issued by Stratis, for example, that is up 101,168% since its ICO last summer. The NXT token is up 672,989%. Those are not type-o’s.

Is type-o a type-o?**

= = = = =

Who is who:

Also from ZH, which is getting sloppy lately:

And just like Theranos, the Honest Company had managed to drag in the "who is who" of venture capital,

Classic hypercorrection. Can't end a sentence with a preposition, can't use split infinitives, can't use contractions. As with all such "rules", the result is absurd. Who's who isn't just a standard phrase, it's a trademark.

= = = = =

Metrology sidenote: Those percents could be numos instead of typos. Using XXX% up or XXX% down is inevitably confusing, unless the percentage is quite small. It gets even more confusing when the base number is itself a percent. When interest is "up 5%" from a 2% starting point, does this mean the current rate is (.02 + .05 = .07) or does it mean the current rate is (.02 * 1.05 = .021) ? Those are distinctly different results, and nothing in the phrase leads you to decide which is correct. Ideally ALL changes should be specified as multipliers. This would make the above giant percentages easier to see, and it would eliminate confusion in the percent-of-percent situation.

  Nuclear proliferation

We used Saudi as part of the strategy to collapse the USSR by cutting oil prices and running Osama in Afghanistan. Ever since, we've been paying the debt by obliterating Saudi's enemies. (Which also happen to be Israel's enemies, so we can get double credit for the same genocide.)

Now even Saudi is tired of us.
The term ‘historic’ is overused. But this time it’s surely merited. The 81-year-old Salman hasn’t ventured to the chilly and autumnal Russian capital to take its waters. The Saudi monarch has instead come to turn a new page in a relationship which has been either non-existent or downright hostile, for decades.

Even a year ago, Moscow and Riyadh were poles apart. The Saudis took a dim view of Russia’s ultimately successful intervention in Syria and the Kremlin was critical of the humanitarian situation in Yemen, a conflict overseen by Salman’s son, and heir apparent, Muhammed.

But suddenly interests have converged. Riyadh is especially concerned about three fundamental issues for the Kingdom: low oil prices, growing Iranian influence in the Middle East and increasingly erratic US foreign policy. When it comes to the first two, Moscow has considerable clout, and the Kremlin may offer a counterbalance to Washington diplomatically.
What does Saudi get from breaking out of the unipolar empire? A chance to break out of Graybill's Law. In the Empire Saudi's skill was cheap oil and nothing else. Saudi is getting tired of the single skill and knows the cheap stuff is starting to run out. Time to learn new skills.

Specifically, Saudi gets a billion-dollar deal to broaden its energy industry with Russian help and Russian profit. More nukes.

In an earlier era we could have made such a deal, with profit to American companies, but we're too stupid now. We can't even build our own nuke plants.




When the KEYSTONE OF THE EMPIRE breaks loose, you know the Empire is gone.

  Who's the real populist?

Trump finally imposes a tariff!

Oops, it's not Trump. It's an existing administrative agency, the ITC, and Trump had nothing to do with the tariff.

Whirlpool does some of its manufacturing overseas, but it also has a real AMERICAN factory in Clyde, Ohio, employing 3000 real Americans to make washing machines. Whirlpool filed a complaint to the ITC against Samsung and LG. Those Korean companies had been moving their factories around various cheap Asian countries to elude treaties and sanctions.

The ITC found that Samsung and LG need to be penalized with a tariff. Trump's administration has until Dec 4 to file objections.

Who is on the populist side here? Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman, both from Ohio, doing what legislators are SUPPOSED to do. Lobbying ITC to defend Whirlpool.

Who is on the globalist side? Repooflicans as usual.
Whirlpool accounts for about 35 percent of all residential washers sold in the United States. It would take a combination of Samsung and LG for those companies to match that share. The Heritage Foundation, a free-market think tank, says that "Whirlpool claims that this case is about losses for the domestic industry as a whole, but in reality, it is about Whirlpool feeling the pressures of innovation and competition from Samsung and LG."
Nasty-ass monsters. Treasonous traitors.

According to the ITC website, this decision was unanimous. There are four commissioners, three appointed by Obama and one by Bush The Son. So this could be called an Obama decision.

Trump has a chance to do the right thing lazily by letting the decision stand.

Will he? I'll bet $100 he goes with the traitors.

  Not just Andorra

A couple days ago I made a Natural analogy:
A normal organism DOES try to keep all of its innately formed regions connected and functional. It doesn't want to lose an arm or a kidney, so it tries to maintain circulation and innervation to those regions. A normal organism DOESN'T want to add more pieces. When a mosquito lands on your face, the skin doesn't annex the mosquito and connect it to your blood and nerves. Instead, your face senses the presence of an unwanted object and uses all available weapons to remove it. The occasional exceptions to this rule point back to its universality. What about pearls in oysters or cysts that form around splinters? Those are not inclusions, they're isolations. The pearl or cyst forms because physically removing the object was impossible. (Oysters don't have hands, and our hands sometimes can't remove a splinter.) The sand grain or splinter was ISOLATED, not ANNEXED. Nature don't do consolidation. Nature DOES do symbiosis. If the nearby region has something you want, you can form a relationship where you provide something useful in exchange for the wanted resource. Money or protection or transportation. This arrangement works nicely. In fact Spain KNOWS HOW TO DO SYMBIOSIS. Andorra has been symbiotic with Spain for centuries. How did it resist inclusion? Because Andorra is ALSO symbiotic with France.
Now Euronews tells us that the same two-way symbiosis does in fact apply to the CataLUnyans. When Aragon was dissolved, it was split two ways:
At the end of the Franco-Spanish War in 1659, the Treaty of the Pyrenees was signed, which endorsed the partition of Catalonia. In 1700, the King of France prohibited the use of Catalan in Roussillon, the Catalan name for the region. Despite numerous attempts from central powers, the Catalan heritage lived on.
And the CataLUnyans on the French side have been actively assisting the current independence movement:
When nearly 10 million ballot papers were seized by Spanish police near Barcelona in the run-up to the region’s referendum on independence, there would have been real fears among separatists the vote wouldn’t go ahead. The move, part of Madrid’s efforts to stop the vote, prompted the establishment of a secret network to get more voting slips printed. One of this network’s outposts was based in a French region on the other side of the Pyrenees, nicknamed North Catalonia. The freshly-printed ballot papers were then sent to Southern Catalonia in near secrecy. This act of solidarity highlighted the close ties that have long existed between the two communities.
Two-way symbiosis.

  Aphid thought

Thought while watching a few aphids (still no swarm yet):

If we're really secular and truly pro-science, we should be strict about it. You want to call yourself asexual or non-binary or intersexual? Prove it by reproducing asexually. Pop out a clone of yourself, or split in two by mitosis. Then you can call yourself asexual.

If you can't clone or bud or split, then you have to pick a more honest term. Male who likes to dress in female clothes or vice versa. Nothing wrong with either preference. Nature enjoys disguises.

Don't be a bully. Don't force the rest of us to DENY SCIENCE by going along with delusional nonsense.

Later today: Temp reached upper 60s, got a fair number of actual aphids. Maybe this is as close as we'll get to Aphid Day this year. Fall is continuing the Rex tradition for this year. After all-90 summer, all-60 fall. Not complaining.... all 60s is NICE. FINALLY. But it means the aphids aren't getting their usual Last Warmth Signal.
 
  Deswamping?

Our demon media and demon government are top-notch experts at swamping, or in perceptual terms, masking.

Instead of deleting Heresy X, they overload your senses with FIRM FLAT AUTHORITATIVE DECLARATIONS of not-X. Instead of directly killing an actual business or skill, they undercut the business or skill with unsustainable low-cost competitors, which then vanish after the target is killed. (eg Uber, Amazon, outsourcing, migrant invasions.)

These techniques were originally developed by Mafias, then refined in the political realm by Alinsky.

Now I'm focusing on the opposite technique. Might call it allergizing or sensitizing or deswamping.

First stage, basically complete now, was in the olfactory realm. Remove all interesting smells from the world so you're allergic to actual smells. This makes it possible to isolate non-cooperating entities and outlaw them. (eg "Multiple Chemical Sensitivity", EPA.)

Second stage, visual allergizing, is well underway in online activities, and spreading to offline styles and fashions. Remove all color and contrast. Three years ago most websites used color and form to guide your attention, as good industrial and graphic designers have always done. Now all websites are devoid of color and form, holding nothing but letters in slightly darker gray on a background of slightly lighter gray. Colors are gone, and even the normal contrast of black on white in print is gone.

Third stage, auditory deswamping, incipient and dubious. The "health attack" hate-hoax on our spies in Cuba seems to be a complementary process. Instead of silencing the world we're being conditioned to associate sounds with sickness. (The hate-hoax itself is clear, but I'm not sure it fits into this trend.)

Final destination is clear. A pure gray world with no sensory content or information, no movement, no change, no distinction between types or species or genders or individuals. All deltas, all patterns conveying information, all LIVING THINGS, are anathema. Ctrl-Z on Genesis.

Only death is legal.

  Happy 60, Sputnik!



Basically reprinting what I wrote on the 57th, which is even more valid now:


Polistra has saluted Sputnik before with an essay on the idiotic notion that Sputnik "woke up" our education system. In fact our response to Sputnik made our schools distinctly WORSE. Soviet schools were doing all the right things (learning by experiment and discussion) while ours were stuck in rote memorization. Before Sputnik we were at least memorizing useful facts; afterward we switched to memorizing pure shit with no conceivable connection to math.

A couple of newer comparisons are evident now.

(1) We constantly mocked Soviet education for teaching the theories of Lysenko. Turns out Lysenko was right, or at least closer to right than our pure-Darwin approach. Acquired characteristics CAN be inherited. Every new discovery in epigenetics reinforces Lysenko and diminishes the Darwin part of the genome.

(2) Our current cultural and educational setup BREEDS TERRORISTS. It's a factory farm for rioters and radicals, with FBI stings as the final packaging and marketing stage on the assembly line.

Who leads revolutions? Logical kids. Engineer types. People with a strict moral code. Our school culture slams those types down to the bottom of the status stack and keeps them there. Athletes and extroverts get all the status and honor. If the engineer types survive they may gain some monetary revenge, but their status never improves.

We are also mass-breeding the privates in the revolutionary army. By eliminating industrial jobs we've turned lower-intelligence males into useless vestiges unsuitable for marriage. (Polistra has hit this point often; Kunstler has a powerful recent piece on the subject.)

The Soviet system, for all its other problems and errors, didn't make this mistake. Everyone had a job and a position. Everyone was useful, and scientist/engineer types were highly valued. If they served the state well, they got special housing and special privileges.

  Neighborhood notes

1. A beautifully well-trained dog has moved in along Hoffman. He's off the leash, sniffing around the yard, peeing, doing all the usual dog things. When he sees a walker on the street, he instantly trots back to the porch and sits quietly and stiffly like a guardian lion statue until the walker is past. Military precision. The owner is not outside, so the dog is performing this wonderful routine without cues or orders. He looks proud to be defending the house, and it's a well-deserved pride.

2. A poorly-trained ATM has moved into Shadle. Terrible software. You insert your card as usual and go through the various steps as usual. The steps take longer because each involves a GIFfy animation instead of a straightforward menu. At the end the machine DOESN'T AUTOMATICALLY EJECT YOUR CARD. The card is still fully inside the holder, not protruding. You can't grab it. The machine pops up a pair of choices: Return Card or Another Transaction. There's no beep or warning. If you don't notice the pair of choices, you're going to walk off and leave your card in the machine. And then what happens?

THE NEXT USER CAN CLAIM YOUR CARD by selecting Return Card. In fact the next user HAS TO claim your card before he can do anything with his own card. At that moment he has effectively stolen a card without meaning to. The machine has turned him into a criminal.

This is CRIMINALLY BAD UI/UX.

  Who will disrupt their delusions?

As the picture of the latest mass shooter slowly crystallizes through the dense fog of nonsense, two facts emerge. Both facts SHOULD BE unremarkable and unsurprising, but our fog machines will not allow either "side" to understand these two facts.

1. This is a workplace dispute. Paddock (nice horsey aptronym!) was a pro gambler, and casinos were his workplace. He was aggrieved by the intolerable fact that the house always wins.

2. This is genes at work. Paddock's father was a serious pro criminal as well as a pro gambler, with a long record of violent crimes and dramatic escapes.

So we have a super-violent crime with a dramatic escape at the end, gaining revenge against the casinos that disrupted the delusion of a pro gambler.

Both "sides" are physically unable to see genes as a cause. It must be ideology. Paddock must be Antifa or he must be ISIS. (Both Antifa and ISIS are Deepstate inventions, designed to replace genetic tendencies with ideology.)

Both "sides" are firmly devoted to gambling and owe their existence to gamblers. Stock bubbles, Bitcoin, fractional-reserve banking, military adventures. All are purely destructive gambles that produce nothing and kill millions, looking toward the ever-receding utopian horizon when we will WIN EVERYTHING, BY GOD.

Those forms of gambling are practiced by the Correct Sort Of Persons, so they are angelic. When an uppity Deplorable like Paddock tries to horn in on the Holy Occupation Of Insatiables, we must simply ignore it.

When will the Insatiable Gamblers be faced with their delusion? Never. When you Own all CONversations, no counterarguments exist.


Later: One commenter came up with the best possible explanation, which fits ALL the known facts of genetics and locations and lifestyle. Paddock was a professional hitman. That's why he had a steady million-dollar income, which you don't get by gambling. (The casinos don't let you win that often!) That's why he had a low profile and no criminal record. Pro hitmen work for mafias and governments who know how to protect their best employees. And that's why he had lots of different guns and knew how to transport them and use them. Only one question is left unanswered: Who was he working for this time?
 
  CataLUnya cui? Maybe

Still trying to temper my natural enthusiasm for CataLUnya. This looks a lot like the Color Revolutions in various countries that turned out to be Sorosian operations. I got ROOKED by the Arab version of the Color Revolutions, and managed to derook in time to see the Ukrainian and Syrian versions accurately.

Am I getting rooked again? Lots of mixed signals floating around. Here's one non-mixed item that tends toward the Sorosian explanation:

Kartik Raj, who works for Human "Rights" Watch, is carefully listing incidents of violence by the Spanish police.

Human "Rights" Watch is part of the Soros machine. If Soros is working on the side of CataLUnya, there's some Color involved. Maybe not all Color, but enough to be cautious.
 
  Cuba cui? No.

ZH is a good source of interesting references, but like all paid media it needs to be treated with great suspicion. Lately they seem to be taking the CNN/FOX/NYT/USGOV line without question entirely too often.

Good example in the Cuban spy station story. The underlying AP report is closer to neutral, more careful about attribution:
The U.S. request marks yet another major setback for relations between the United States and Cuba, two countries that only recently renewed diplomatic relations after a half-century of hostility. It comes as the U.S. seeks to protect its own diplomats from unexplained attacks that have harmed at least 21 Americans in Havana with ailments that affected their hearing, cognition, balance and vision.

On Monday, The Associated Press reported that U.S. spies were among the first and most severely affected victims. Though bona fide diplomats have also been affected, it wasn’t until U.S. spies, working out of the embassy under diplomatic cover, reported hearing bizarre sounds and experiencing even stranger physical effects that the United States realized something was wrong, several individuals familiar with the situation said.

The mysterious “health attacks” started within days of President Donald Trump’s election in November, the AP has reported. But it wasn’t until Friday that the United States ordered more than half its embassy staff to return home.
This is classic mass hysteria. Someone reports "symptoms" and all of her junior-high classmates, oops I mean fellow spies, suddenly have the same "symptoms".

If it's not classic mass hysteria, then it's a classic hate hoax, a total fabrication to accomplish a purpose.

Note that AP says the mass hysteria, oops I mean hate hoax, oops I mean health attacks, started within days of faker Trump's "election".

CUI BONO.

There are two CUIs here. One is Cuba, the other is Deepstate.

Why would Cuba want to sabotage relations that were just starting to improve? Cuba is sane. Trump had said that he was unhappy about Obama's normalized relations, but hadn't sounded especially warlike. Cuba would see Trump as a casino owner who was driving a hard bargain to gain a monopoly for his brand of casinos. Back to pre-1959 US/Cuba relations. Cuba would want to make a deal. Protection for Trump casinos in return for stopping the blockade.

Why would Deepstate want to sabotage relations? That's DEAD EASY. Deepstate eunuchs are SABOTEURS. Deepstate sabotages everything and everyone who doesn't obey perfectly. Deepstate wants war with every country that isn't Saudi or Israel. Cuba isn't Saudi or Israel, so it must be destroyed. The eunuchs were tired of Obama's halfhearted warmaking and knew Trump was a brainless twat who could be flipped and clipped easily.

  What would Nature do?

Continuing the theme of decentralizing and seceding.

From DW:
Outside the EU, Serbia's foreign minister has expressed support for Madrid.

"Our position is clear and principled, Spain is one of the greatest friends of Serbia," Ivica Dacic said, adding that Madrid is in "the same position on the issue of the territorial integrity of Serbia."

Spain, unlike most other EU member states, does not recognize the independence of Kosovo, which broke away from Serbia in 2008.
Decentralizing is not a basic question of morality and law. Facts and history can establish limits. Some regions are clearly qualified for autonomy and some aren't. But within the 'qualified' range, logic and law and morality don't provide guidance.

Does Nature offer advice? Yes.

A normal organism DOES try to keep all of its innately formed regions connected and functional. It doesn't want to lose an arm or a kidney, so it tries to maintain circulation and innervation to those regions.

A normal organism DOESN'T want to add more pieces. When a mosquito lands on your face, the skin doesn't annex the mosquito and connect it to your blood and nerves. Instead, your face senses the presence of an unwanted object and uses all available weapons to remove it.

The occasional exceptions to this rule point back to its universality. What about pearls in oysters or cysts that form around splinters? Those are not inclusions, they're isolations. The pearl or cyst forms because physically removing the object was impossible. (Oysters don't have hands, and our hands sometimes can't remove a splinter.)

The sand grain or splinter was ISOLATED, not ANNEXED.

Nature don't do consolidation.

Nature DOES do symbiosis. If the nearby region has something you want, you can form a relationship where you provide something useful in exchange for the wanted resource. Money or protection or transportation. This arrangement works nicely.

In fact Spain KNOWS HOW TO DO SYMBIOSIS. Andorra has been symbiotic with Spain for centuries. How did it resist inclusion? Because Andorra is ALSO symbiotic with France.

And there's the correct answer, which many countries are already applying now that there's an INHIBITORY HOST available. Turkey and Persia and Brazil and Venezuela are reaching out to Inhibitory Symbiont Russia to establish a normal TENSION of positive and negative feedback. Turkey was tired of being treated as an organ by USA STRONG, so it's trying to become a two-way symbiont. Persia was tired of being treated as a splinter by USA STRONG, so it's seeking balance.

Needless to say, the Antichrist immediately and reliably spoke out against Nature and sanity and goodness:
Meanwhile Pope Francis has urged Europeans to put aside nationalistic interests for the sake of unity. His remarks came during a visit to northern Italy on Sunday and did nor refer directly to the violence which at the time was breaking out in Catalonia.

"Don't be afraid of unity," Francis said. "May special interests and nationalism not render the courageous dreams of the founders of the European Union in vain!"
In other words, violence and mass death and aggressive wars and total slavery are saintly and Christlike. Autonomy and symbiosis are evil.

  Inhibiting my excitement

Applying a little inhibitory input against my excitement over CataLUnya's decision....

Decentralizing is Nature's way, but there is a strict limit on decentralizing. Many regions want independence but only a small number can handle it. CataLUnya is certainly among the few.

First and foremost, it was ALREADY a nation for several centuries before the 1800's trend toward consolidation in Europe. Aragon was a power similar to Portugal.

Second, it has always maintained its own language and culture. Consolidated Spain, based in Castile, has forced international organizations to treat CataLUnyan as a dialect, but it's easily a distinct language by all the usual standards. It's about halfway between Castilian and French.

Third, it has plenty of resources. Factories, ports, smart workers.

Kurdistan also meets the standards, with 2500 years of strong national history. The Medes were among the major players in Old Testament times.

Another independence movement in the news today is an English-speaking region of the West African Francophone nation of Cameroun. Doesn't meet the criteria. Wasn't a nation before colonial times, doesn't have its own resources and connections.

  Too obvious for games



I'm not going to play the asked-answered thing because I'm sure RT placed these two items together on purpose.

Nevertheless, they are TRUE items, and the juxtaposition says it all.

USA STRONG has spent the last 30 years DESTROYING its own infrastructure. Not just neglecting but RIPPING IT TO SHREDS. Tearing down dams, decommissioning nuclear plants, building NOTHING new.

Russia went through a long phase of extreme neglect, then LEARNED THE LESSON and turned the corner. Now Russia is building new infrastructure for itself, and its government is MAKING MONEY by building infrastructure for other sane countries.

Perfect comparison of the Axis of Evil vs the Axis of Sanity.

  What's salient?

Random pointless observation.

Watching RT's coverage of a CataLUnya polling station. Not much happening, no violence there. Somewhat surprisingly, the people look just like the people around this neighborhood. Same selection of faces and forms, same variety of clothing. If I saw a still frame without context, I would have initially assumed the picture was in Spokane.

Candid pics from other parts of Europe are instantly recognizable as foreign. Hairstyles, glasses, clothing, default face positions, all distinctly Euro, not familiar.

But the CataLUnyans don't MOVE like the people around here. All of their hand gestures are foreign. Most of them keep one hand on or near the mouth, and they wave their arms around when they talk.
 
  Manweller and CataLUnya

The CataLUnya referendum is the most dramatic example of Manweller's Rule in recent history. Manweller observed that elections are only allowed when they don't matter. Any election that can make a serious difference is either halted or overturned.

Most of the haltings in USA STRONG are done quietly in legislatures, and the overturning is done quietly by black-robed demons.

This halting is BIG and DRAMATIC. Even globalist demons like BBC had to give it a few minutes of coverage.

Spain's dysgovernment could have followed the British example. Let the referendum happen, and then tangle the result in obstacles and red tape so nobody can say it was overturned. Instead the Spanish dysgovernment brought out the tanks and snipers, and right now they're cracking hundreds of heads.

The heads that survive WILL NOT FORGET. Spain has GUARANTEED A VIOLENT REVOLUTION.

However again: The CataLUnya government hasn't shown much intelligence.... or else it ALSO wants a violent revolution. As I said before, the simple solution to terrorists in polling stations is to vote without polling stations. Voting by mail has worked nicely in Wash, Ore, Calif for many years. CataLUnya could have combined paper mail and email for maximum LOOSEness. Use external forwarding services for paper mail and external proxies for email. Count the votes in another country. You have to step OUTSIDE the problem to solve the problem.

Later: Well, if nothing else the Spanish dysgovernment has reached a new high in suicidal stupidity. They're beating the population to a pulp DURING the referendum, without actually halting the referendum; and they're beating the CataLUnyan POLICEMEN AND FIREMEN to a pulp. A new world record in instant radicalization of an entire region from top to bottom. There are only two choices now. Allow CataLUnya to split, or start a full-fledged war with most of the world favoring the other side.

  Another skill lost to automation

Speaking of school intercoms used for spying and speaking of robots replacing intelligence reminded me of a small traditional skill that was taken over this year by school intercom robots.

Reprinting an item written in 2011, as a sort of eulogy........

= = = = = START REPRINT:

In the 20 years I've been at this address, I've heard the 'Crossing Song' every morning from the nearby school. It's an interesting example of how music develops on its own from shouting. Ethnomusicology or something like that.

The crossing guards seem to be assigned on a weekly basis. Each pair has a slightly different way of singing, but the basic tune is always the same. You'd think that in 20 years, with presumably a different pair each week, you'd hear at least one pair who can sing in unison. Nope. Each pair has one good tune-carrier who starts the song, and one poor tune-carrier who follows. The follower is always out of unison by at least a half-tone.


The 9:00 song is simplest, just Last Crossing! I've represented it as G G E, though it's really Sol Sol Mi. (Relative pitch, not absolute.)


The 8:30 song adds another phrase. (Schools here offer both breakfast and lunch; about half the kids take advantage of the breakfast, so it needs a separate crossing period.)


And a few musically conscious 'lead singers' add an extra pitch to the 8:30 song, with just a bit of pride evident in the voice.

= = = = =

May 2015: After building a usable microphone, I finally got a live recording of the Crossing Song. Thirty seconds long, with three repeats; there was some noise from a nearby weed-wacker or something on the first two, but the noise turned off on the third. Here is the MP3 file.

= = = = = END REPRINT.

Back to Oct 2017: It's always hard to pin down the departure of a practice, especially when it's not a direct part of your own life. This year the guards seemed silent, but I waited a full month to decide for sure that the skill is gone. It's been replaced by a MUCH louder school intercom system with speakers that can be heard for several blocks. The intercom beeps at 8:25 now.

If nothing else the kids set a record. During the 26 years that I heard the song, I never heard them singing in unison. Not once. Makes me wonder if non-unison is instinctively compelled when singing is an alarm call. More salient with beats and warbles.

My Photo
Name:
Location: Spokane

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
