Oh yes the other other Kennedy assassination.

They funded gain of research testing at a lab implicated in prior bio leaks and has been used by the Communist army. What could possibly go wrong.

It's been too long since I ranted about Moon Power.



He puts the Moon in third place after the Sun, and the Earth's rotation. Quotes 100 Gigawatts potential world wide, or 80 million 'homes' whatever they are (Western suburban, multi-generational, worker bee pod(?)).

In a recent Timcast, his sidekick Ian Crossland, when they talked about lumber prices, said 'maybe we should build geodesic domes?' but they talked about making them out of lumber (like we did in the 1980s).

Today I'd say blow mud bubbles, and fire them like brick.

Hell hath no fury...

The women I have dated never wanted solutions, they wanted sympathy:


However, since their wounds were self-inflicted, I didn't stay in their life.

Like clockwork, the next day the optimal strategy came to me, and I proposed it to my wife. I started off saying, "you won't like this initially, but here's how this plan optimizes all considerations".

She's a huge advocate of this plan now, and is even telling everyone our grand plan, sans my initial rejection of the original bad plan, and her anger towards me.

Most problems bore me until I'm confronted with so many bad solutions that I can no longer ignore them. It's not that I have better ones; it's only that I recognize inefficiency. Having these bad solutions in the background of my consciousness tends to produce better solutions out of the blue.

The recent problems involved conceiving a child, attending a major military promotion, transporting a sport bike that was gifted to me, and serving my customers (with a few other minor considerations).

I'll update how the grand plan goes.

Main stream science is so close to figuring it out. It's like they have arrived but just haven't realized it yet.

I see what you did with the caption.

What I learned is that it's El Nino and La Nina. From one of those gendered languages.

edit: Well... That and the Solar magnetic poles flipping.

Now all that's missing is aerohead telling us the sun doesn't effect weather or climate.

Hahaha. Climate change group disbanded because they are too white.

I think they checked in with reality and realized they're about to be adults and will be free to do what they want. Had to ask them selves am I really going to forego owning a car, traveling to places I always wanted to see by air plane, getting the new iphone, ect in the name of saving the planet? Live like a hermit in a self imposed climate lock down, wait I just did a year of lock down, not doing that again.
