Cartoon Of The Day!!!!!!

image

Most of the readers here have been at this too long to think this is funny.  But, it is real ….. sort of.  The fact is, we still haven’t come up with a way to accurately measure our global temperature, and then relate what we think we know about the temperature today, vs the temperature of yesteryear.  There simply is no realistic way of doing so.  Even the recent satellite temps are unreliable in that they have undergone several iterations, each time, believing it was better than the last iteration, but, offering no realistic proof that it is.  The surface based observations (thermometer readings) are even in a worse mess …. a much worse mess. 

The problems, but, not limited only to what I’m going to state, are the amount and distribution and the environment around our thermometers are not static, they never were static. 

We planted a few thermometers in places where mostly Western Civilization existed.  Later, as other places became exposed to Western culture, we planted some more.  Even today, there are huge expanses of land and water which have no thermometers.  Worse, most of the thermometers move!  That is to say, the thermometers we orginally planted in most places are not exactly where they were when we planted the original ones.  But, then, they’re not even the same types of thermometers and were not calibrated the same way.  The exceptionally few places which remain static are in entirely different environents than when they were originally planted.   There is absolutely no way or manner in which we can relate our current concept of global temperature to the global temperatures of the past.  It is simply impossible.  But, some are sure of our global temps, and how they relate to the temps of yesteryear to the precision of 1/100ths of a degree. 

Anyone who doubts what I’ve stated above either hasn’t looked into the issue, or, is simply too passionate in their belief that mankind is a malicious imposition to nature. 

So, given that we cannot prove nor disprove the concept of our globe warming, how can we possibly come to the conclusion that it is warming because a very slight increase of CO2 in our atsosphere?  It’s utter idiocy.

There are, of course, many,many more problems with the notion of global warming, such as the problem with IR and the output of the sun vs the earth, ….. as mentioned in the cartoon, the modeling, the constant tinkering with historical data, the constant failure to meet the expectations (predications) one would have with a warming globe, such as no longer snowing, increases in hurricanes, tornadoes and other natural events.  Oddly, despite the constant predictions of starvation, the world has continued to increase crop production even to outpace population increase. 

Now, as we are heading to the 2020’s, we should recall the dire predictions and alarms sounded in the 80’s regarding the potential catastrophe of the said “global warming” (which no one can prove).  It’s been damned near 4 decades of predictided doom and gloom, and death and dispair. 

Global warming is as real as the fictional character Dilbert.

Trump Dumps Comey!!!!

image

Well, this is new. 

Trump fires FBI Director Comey

……“Today, President Donald J. Trump informed FBI Director James Comey that he has been terminated and removed from office,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in a statement. 

He also said the president acted “on the clear recommendations” of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

“The FBI is one of our Nation’s most cherished and respected institutions and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement,” Trump said.  

A search for a new permanent FBI director will begin immediately.

The White House made the stunning announcement shortly after the FBI corrected a sentence in Comey’s sworn testimony on Capitol Hill last week.

The director told lawmakers that Huma Abedin, when a top aide to Hillary Clinton at the State Department, had sent “hundreds and thousands” of emails to her husband’s laptop, including some with classified information. 

On Tuesday, the FBI said in a two-page letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee that only “a small number” of the thousands of emails found on the laptop had been forwarded there while most had simply been backed up from electronic devices.  …..

He wasn’t fired because of the “corrected testimony”.  He addressed congress in a closed door meeting, today.

SuperObama: ‘Have a Smaller Steak’ to Save Planet

Former President Barack Obama warned the world that more people on the planet were eating meat, causing a dramatic rise in climate emissions.

“As people want to increase meat consumption, that in turn is spiking the growth of greenhouse emissions coming out of the agricultural sector,” Obama said, pointing to countries that were consuming more meat.

The former president shared his views about the growing threat during a conversation about food with his former chef Sam Kass at a food innovation summit in Milan.

“People aren’t as familiar with the impact of cows and methane,” Obama said, adding that “as people want to increase more meat consumption, that in turn is spiking the growth of greenhouse emissions coming out of the agricultural sectors.”

The amount of cows, Obama explained, were contributing to global pollution, alluding to the amounts of methane gas emissions from cow herds.

“No matter what, we are going to see an increase in meat consumption,” Obama said, pointing to developing economies in China, India, Indonesia, and Vietnam. More advanced countries, Obama said, would have to teach people to “have a smaller steak” and explore reductions to their meat consumption.

“What it does mean is that we’re also going to have to find ways to produce protein in a more efficient way,” he said.

During the conversation, Obama argued with Kass about how many steaks he had cooked him.

Kass said that he probably cooked “thousands of steaks” for the president, but Obama interrupted.

“I don’t think, thousands,” he protested.

“Well hundreds maybe,” Kass backtracked. “I’ve been cooking for you for 10 years.”

“What is true is that I’m not a vegetarian,” Obama admitted, adding that he “respected vegetarians” but continued to eat meat.

Have mercy!!!  This idiot thinks he knows something about our climate!  Quick!!!! Can anyone tell me what the half-life of methane is in our atmosphere?  I don’t know the answer, but, then, neither does anyone else.  However, I do know that UV rays from the sun convert methane to ethane.

CH4 → CH3• + •H

CH3• + •CH3 → C2H6

Now, I’m not a chemist, though, I know a few.  Can anyone tell me the implications of such a formula?  ……. I’m thinking that as soon as the sun shines, atmospheric methane turns to ethane.  But, then, ….. well, it just does. 

You know, if the lunatics cared and believed so much in the global warming idiocy, rather than asking the rest of humanity to eat less meat wouldn’t it be better to simply shine some low frequency UV lighting up towards the sky?

The global warming scam, is, was, and always will be about misanthropy.

This Explains It!!!!! Some People Got Beat With A Fugly Stick!!!!!

image

These are photos of the anarchists arrested in the Portland commie riot, yesterday.

Oddly, the word, “Androgynous” comes to mind when looking at some of these photos.  This would explain their unprovoked anger and typical atheism. 

But, guys, or gals ……. or whatever, beauty isn’t skin deep!!!!!!!  And, besides, there’s surgical procedures and everything to help you with your problems!!!!  You don’t have to riot because of this!!!!!

Happy “Peaceful” Commie ….. Uhmm May Day!!!!!

image

Pic on the right is a traditional way to celebrate May Day, a secular day celebrated for centuries.  The pic on the left is the way communists and anarchists celebrate it today.  It’s from a scene in France where the rioters and terrorists lobbed Molotov cocktails (petrol bombs) at police, which, the BBC reportedly called it a “peaceful” gathering ……. which is less confusing, albeit incorrect, than what NBC had to say about it …….

NBC News World News

@NBCNewsWorld

Peaceful #MayDay2017 march in Paris turns violent as protesters lob Molotov cocktails at police who fire back with tear gas

That is to say, I guess, it was peacefully violent.

What is it about communists and anarchists?  They are pathelogical. 

In other news, today is officially “Law Day” in the US, but, no one would ever know that, but for people such as myself. 

BTW, the history of the Commie May Day/Labor Day comes from the US in the aftermath of the Haymarket Affair in 1886, where a dynamite bomb was thrown at police.  While the bomb-thrower was never identified, serveral were hanged for conspiracy.  Many communists and anarchists consider those hanged to be martyrs or some such.  But, they all knew and knowingly associated with the bomb-maker.  But, such as it is with these scumbags, even unto today.  They know nothing but hate.  This is why they describe any speech they disagree with as “hate-speech”.  In their mind, it gives them license to respond with the same hate, only more physically expressed.  At root, they are amoral, which naturally leads to illmoral.   They are a plague on humanity.  They need delt with.

Imagine the US, right now, had Trump not been elected.  Consider the violence committed against people with differing thoughts of those of the intolerant left even today.  How much worse would it be if Hillary was president?  They need delt with, and soon.

Suyts Updates And MS Open Source?

Image result for updating time

Son-of-a-……….!!!!!!!!!

So, I got my newer PC back up and running!  It was trick!  I pulled an old 160 gig hd from a Win XP SP3 PC, slapped it in my recently deceased PC and …… no joy.  Nothing happened!  I wondered if more damage other than my HD happened when my cat killed it.  Everything looked fine ….. tried it again …….. It didn’t recognize my HD as being “bootable”, it asked about the DVD drive and even though it had a Win 7 disk in it, it said it wasn’t bootable, either.  It occurred to me that the BIOS maybe were a bit scewed, so, it was to the randomly hitting the function keys.  :\  Eventually I did get an option to boot from the SATA HD!!!!! ……. no joy, it simply would not!  It would see the old Windows, but, then, reboot and go back to telling me my DVD drive had no bootable media.  Sad smile    But, I persevered!!!!!  If I hit the F9-F12 buttons I would get my option to boot from the actual HD (but it doesn’t save that option) and when I did boot from the HD, if I hit the F5 button, I could get the boot in “Safe Mode” option, which it did!!!  From there I was able to install Win 7!!!!!!!  Yea!!!!!   …. Sort of …….

Yes, I had my drivers for my Mother Board, processor, etc ….. And, Win 7 did an admirable job of identifying them and installing them!   I’ve got a working newish PC!!!!!  Sort of ……  every darned thing “needed” updated.  Especially the Win 7 SP1 I installed.  Every time I turned around, I needed to reboot, and Windows would tell me not to turn off my PC and let my life pass by while they installed updates!  This went on for 3 days!!!!!! 

One of the few pleasures in my life is conquering the world with a game called “Empire Total War”.  It’s actually a very good game with great historical context albeit with a left bent to some of the comentary on the historical context.  It’s no big deal, because I have the install discs handy!!!! …………. Disappointed smile  ….. Yeh, well, the “online community” garbage (Steam) needed to update ….. &%&&$%^@%%*%  I couldn’t install the rest of my game until Steam updated.  Why?  Because %%$&*%^#%#@&& , that’s why.  It was only a few GIGS!!!!!!!!!  ……..  Then, once it finally and wonderfully got done, …….. it asked me for my User Name and PW ………Surprised smile    …..   I had no idea what they were!!!!  No prob, it has this cool button to push if I forgot my stuff……..It opened a fantastic page (I’m sure) which didn’t render!  It was blank!!!!  It’s still blank!!!    Okay, NBD, I can just open my web browser and copy the link to the browser and it will render in a real browser!!! …… Well, not the IE 8 that came with Win 7 it wouldn’t.  Of course, I have to update my browser.  Sigh ……

Well, I had good luck with the latest MS browser that came with the Win 10, so …. okay, I’ll go to MS.  But, I can’t find the latest non-IE browser.  MS directs me to EI11!!!!!  Fine, I don’t care at this point.  Just get me a browser I can use!!!!!  I did, but, now, it was just updating the browser, it’s giving me all sorts of stuff!!!!  We’re downloading crap again!!!!!! 

At the end, I’m informed I need to reboot again.  …… Sigh … the “don’t turn off your PC” message appears again.  We’re at 5 of 120 updates ………. 

The next morning I’m turning on the PC …….. “don’t turn off your PC” .. We’re installing the updates!!!!  Son-of-a $%%&%&*@%@!!!!! 

Okay, fine!!!!!  I come home from work, I fire up the PC.  We’re good!!!!!  But, I still can’t get into Steam so I can play my game, which is all loaded on my PC!  Wait!!!! What’s my UN and PW for my …. well, which e-mail address did I use when I set up this damned account, years ago?   “Mother of all whores!!!!!!”

Yes, I finally worked through that problem….. but, there were more updates to be had, so, I went to my daughters house to have a few beers and celebrate my victory and my soon to be conquered world!  As expected, I got home, the updates were done, and I was going to play my game!!!!  I opened the app and ….. and…… and, son … mother ….. bastages …. I, they …. OMG!!!!!! ….. the game itself needed to update!!!!!  But, it was only 10 gigs so, well, there’s  that.  Oddly, the game seems exactly like it used to be, except it now takes up twice the space of my HD.  Disappointed smile  But, by then, I had already had a few posts in mind to post.  …… NBD on that one!!!!  I’ve used Windows Live Writer ever since I started this blog!  I’ll just go download it and go!!!!  And, yep!!!!  MS still has the download, and so, I did!  Got done with the quick down load and clicked the install button, it started … then, promptly failed.  What the fresh hell is this?  Well, it was IE, so, maybe a different browser?  Sigh, I downloaded Chrome, got that done, went back to the Live Writer install and downloaded it …… it died on install, too.  Maybe if I just delete the old install and reload a new one? …. Nope, it’s still dies!!!

Now, mind you, I can still blog using Word Press, but, it’s a very … well, crappy blogging tool.  If I have to use the WP blog writer, I’ll write a tearful goodbye and call it.  So, I search for an acceptable alternative, there’s this thing called “Open Live Writer”, the first thing that comes to my mind is “Open Office”, which is the open source answer to MS Office, and it’s exactly what one would expect, it suffices, but, you get what you pay for.  MS Office is the bomb, if you have a few hundred dollars to get it.  Open Office is not. 

Upon reading though, I find out why I can’t install Windows Live Writer ………. MS stopped supporting it at the first of the year.  Upon further investigation, I find that MS does offer an alternative, themselves.  It’s called Open Live Writer.  ……….

So, I haven’t played with all the button and dials of this “new” writer, but, from what I can tell, it’s functions, looks, feels, exactly like the old Windows Live Writer.  So, why didn’t MS remove the download for Win Live Writer?  I can only assume to screw with me.  Why did they call it “open” without letting people know it came from MS?  I can only assume to screw with me. 

No matter, I’m done with the bitterness, all I have to do now it to install my printer drivers and I’ll be good to go!  I’m informed it is only a 10 Mb download …. we’ll be done in a minute!!!!  But, there was another 15 meg load, and then a 35 one, and then another 20 one and then, and then, and then …….. f’n Kodak!!!!!!!

BTW, with my game, which is at least 5 years old, my printer, my web browsers, OS, and MS’s security stuff, I’ve got 66 Gigs being used on my HD. 

I’ve seen progress before, this is not it.

Happy Easter!!!! HE IS RISEN!!!!!

image

Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise[h] from the dead the third day, 47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 And you are witnesses of these things.49 Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem[i] until you are endued with power from on high.”

The Ascension

50 And He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them. 51 Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven. 52 And they worshiped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, 53 and were continually in the temple praising and[j] blessing God. Amen.[k]

You know, this isn’t the end of the story, but, a promise of greater things to come!  There will be a day of greater commemoration!

Potpourri And A Couple Of Random Thoughts ……

image

First and foremost, Trump did his job in this one, and now it is up to Gorsuch.  He now sits with 8 other of the most powerful people in the US.  A former Supreme Court Chief Justice had once said, “the law is what we say the law is.”  May God grant him the wisdom needed to sit in such an important seat.    I had stated in the past that I would consider the Trump presidency a success if he was able to appoint a conservative to the USSC, and if he got that wall built.  He’s halfway there! 

 

I believe the bombing in Syria was for political expedience.  People wanted Trump to do it, on both sides, and it makes the lunatics look pretty stupid when saying Trump’s a pawn of Putin.  I believe Trump would much rather the Syrian issue go away rather than get us further embroiled in it. The problem with Syria is that there is no good side to back.  The rebels are pretty much the ISIS vein.  There’s no powerful group of moderate Syrian rebels to back.  Personally, I’d let Russia have Syria, with their promise to eradicate ISIS there, and our promise to eradicate ISIS in Iraq.

 

Let’s be honest, here.  No one gives a damn about the Syrian people in general.  It’s just that no one likes the optics of chemical weapons being used.  For some reason, killing people with chemicals rather than bullets and bombs is less palatable for people around the world. 

 

I’m sure we were all shocked to learn the Obama administration lied to us about Syria giving up all of its chemical weapons. 

 

LASTLY!!!  And, most importantly, I wish some assistance from the loyal Suyts readers ……

I need references and links to articles and works and pages, and hopefully with curves demonstrating the efficiency gains created by the proper use of the division of labor.  I know this sounds strange, and low level.  In fact, it is so low level in modern industrial thought I’m having a hard time finding something adequate.

The reason for this request is because I wish to write a paper in academic style and present it to my company’s VP.  This is because my company doesn’t.  They are in horrible need of a person such as myself.  This was suppose to be my “Welcome to Wal Mart”, or, “do you want fries with that?” job!!!!  I wasn’t suppose to have to think!  Just do, collect my paycheck and work on other things more dear to my heart and mind …… like starting a micro-brewery!!!! 

I work at an aerospace production plant.  The problem with the aerospace industry is that they grew up parallel with the auto industry, but, never applied the lessons learned in mass production because the demand for the various parts do not require mass production.  But, that doesn’t mean one can’t utilize the efficiency gains of modern mass production by applying the notions to specific tasks.  We simply don’t do that.  And, I can’t stand it!!!!!  It’s driving me insane!  It’s like fingernails clawing down a chalkboard every day!!!!  For example, we actually have an “assembly dept.”, but, we absolutely have no assembly line

At any rate, I would appreciate any references towards such notions. 

Thanks, guys!

Well, I haven’t posted anything for a while, but, thought I’d check in, and get a new page for people to comment.  When doing open threads I like to add a pic, so I Goggle “open thread”.  The pic above is one that come up.  I thought, well, why not?  It could be a good conversational piece!

A Real Court Filing!!!!!! And Personal Suyts BS ….

image

You can read it here.

I actually have more heavier posts in mind, but, I just don’t have the energy. 

 

You see, right after I made my last post, my kitten actually killed my PC.  My PC sits on the floor next to my legs under my desk.  My cat likes to sit atop the PC and bother me for attention.  As per norm, I was a bit chilled, so I covered my legs with what I can an “old man’s blanket”.  My cat was patting at me and got his claws stuck in the fabric of my blanket. …… Have you ever seen a cat react to such an occasion?  Well, he knocked over my PC …. and killed my hard drive.  Now, I know a great many tricks to bring a hard drive back to life.  Unfortunately, none of them worked.  I took it to work so the IT people could have a look at it (I no longer work in the IT field).  They have a number of tools available.  They didn’t work, either.  Frustration and time consumption was what occupied me for most of last week.  At the time, I thought that was my biggest immediate challenge. 

I was soon introduced to a much greater concern and challenge.  I would have had my PC up and running by now, but, there was a medical emergency in my immediate family.  I spent Sat, Sun, and Monday in the ER and ICU.  I brought her home yesterday, went to work today.  I’m tired.

And, yes, everything is fine, now.  There is a quote …..

Fear comes from uncertainty. When we are absolutely certain, whether of our worth or worthlessness, we are almost impervious to fear. — William Congreve

I spent a few days in uncertainty, and, thus, fear.  It’s exhausting.  What I’ve learned is that you just need to give it to God.  I pray I don’t have to relearn such a lesson again.  

Back to brighter notes ……

This post is being generated by a PC I call “old faithful”.  I actually had to do a couple of tricks to bring her back to PC life!  I used this PC when I first started blogging.  Heck, I was using it well before I started blogging!  I had to bring her back momentarily last year, and momentarily the year before.  I don’t remember all the fun things I did to this PC, but, I did upgrade the processor and tripled the RAM.  I also did some great hard drive stuff!  It’s a dual boot (used to have a Unix) with 3 drives and 5 virtual drives.  As I recall, she started as a simple Win XP sp1.  I used to have her overclocked, but, she just got too hot.  I’m using the XP side right now because there’s not much on the other boot.  I password protected my Unix and forgot the password …… so, there’s Win 7, but, it’s fresh and not much else on it.  The thing is, I can’t seem to kill it!  Every time I think it’s dead, I play with it for a bit, and it comes back!  I’m thinking about RAIDing her to see how that might improve the performance.  But, for right now, I’m going to play a mindless game, Ages of Empires II.  I haven’t for years.

A Gem Post!!!!! Jonah, Muhammed, And, Jesus

No, the title isn’t an intro to a joke.  It’s a thought provoking post.  I haven’t posted on a Christian thought for a very long time.  Too, long, indeed. 

The Prophet said, “One should not say that I am better than Jonah (i.e. Yunus) bin Matta.” So, he mentioned his father Matta (Volume 4, Book 55, Number 608:Sahih Bukhari)

That’s probably right …. but, then, there’s this …..

39 He answered, “A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now something greater than Jonah is here.  Matthew 12:39-41(NIV)

image

John 14:6King James Version (KJV)

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

That is right!

Jonah, Muhammad, and Jesus are all regarded as prophets by the Muslim religion.  Indeed, they are regarded as speakers of TRUTH. 

Well, in the above quotes, I have to agree.
