I went into a restaurant to meet a woman I know about 11:30 am. Nothing romantic -- just old friends and she said she had some questions for me. So I'm shown to the back dining room where she is waiting. We talk a little while and then I notice that she is no longer there. I thought she just went to...

I had a dream that I was suffering from some medical issue and my doctor referred me to a specialist in some town in China for further testing. In the dream, the only doctors in the world that performed that test practiced only in that town. So I went. Upon arrival, it was extremely crowded and nobo...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but for a blockchain, there has to be ample reason for there to be miners out there on that blockchain. There has to be some kind of payout for them to spend their costly resources on doing that mining. A great many of the problems for which some people think it is the solu...

Mine are a combination of never being completely certain of anything, and extending the principle of charity towards others until they give me reason not to. I'm quite certain about a number of things in mathematics. That includes that there are mathematical statements that can be neither proven no...

Just because those dumb inbreds didn't succeed hardly means it wasn't a legitimate attempt at an insurrection in DC. Make that "an attempt at an insurrection" and I will agree. After all, they were there to overthrow the election. But, "a legitimate attempt at an insurrection" k...

I also do not accept finger pointing. If you are working here, you are far better off owning up to your errors than you are trying to blame them on others.

I had a dream last night that was kind of like two completely separate dreams. In the first part I was trying to improve a radio channel for carrying internet traffic to some equipment out in a field. In doing so, I encountered a number of issues including the presence of other people who seemed to ...

From the news reports: In court filings, prosecutors said Goodwyn had multiple violations of the conditions of his release and that he challenged instruction from the PSA by "using word games, and becoming easily frustrated, angry and negative." "The defendant's multiple violations a...

There is nothing about the guy that makes me think that he has any interest at all in making even the slightest effort to comply with the court's orders. All he wants to do is have his own way no matter what. But then, if he's been excused from complying with everyone all his life because he is spe...

The fact that some of them still believe that vaccines cause autism, despite that being debunked years ago, proves they would rather their kids be dead from Covid than be "autistic". So in addition to Trump, I would add Andrew Wakefield to stoking the sentiment. I'm not so sure that many ...

To be responsible for myself and to live by my own intelligence and experiences and not bow down to anyone's group think, especially that of politically correctness.

I had a dream that some woman who I didn't like was obsessed with me and wanted desperately to make me her husband. She had an extremely whiny voice which reminded me of someone I greatly detest. In the dream, I was at home and she showed up with an entire chest of "sex toys" some of which...

One problem I've had in the past is that if I drank much, I would get to liking it too much and rapidly start drinking frequently and often to the point of being drunk. When I realized that many years ago, I forced myself to not drink any alcohol for quite a while and since then I only drink on occa...

And in a trial, a defendant who cannot behave is not entitled to having society bend over backwards to give in to his demands. Making an accommodating for someone who can't wear a mask is "bending over backwards"? I'd hate to see what you thought of someone who needed a more complicated m...

seems to me that a missing 2nd gear would not be as bothersome as a missing top gear, at least to somebody who rides at freeway speeds often. On my old Triumph Bonneville, when I was in a hurry I'd be changing from 2nd to 3rd at about 50 to 75 mph. (It's been a while so I don't remember precisely w...

I don't tolerate self important snowflakes very well. Not big on the presumption of innocence and the right to a fair trial either, are you? The presumption of innocence relates ONLY to a courtroom. There is absolutely nothing in the law or in morals or in ethics that compels us to presume someone ...
