What happens when renewable energy requires non renewable sources to function?

The law of unintended consequences has better representation  presently than we do as a race. It’s nice that we have a myriad of ways  to attempt to keep living in the manner to which a certain part of the world has been accustomed but where the real work seems to be lacking in removing the need for the need to  try to maintain a status quo that’s so brief a time in our history  is weird.
 How much energy we waste just to have people show up  same time, same place to interact remotely with those they never see face to face based on what?  a fear your employees will “steal” and goof off your time?   Some will, and already do,   because as long as we still keep seeing most things as  jobs ,  things you -have- to be paid to do and ends up with us treating  people with the level of contempt that causes.

Seriously, adults  checking up on  the bowel movements  of those with a different job title   leads to what benefit to the customer?  Bad enough  you have to suffer the “piss police” and their shoddy  inaccurate tests ,that can’t tell a cold medicine from a drug , but grown people  having to account for the time they took to shit?   Until that mindset alters I’m not sure how much we gain by making the transport to and from the workplace archipelago more efficient.

Well that was a nice digression.  New Scientist has an article that asks what next? Prior to us even getting into the  efficient non polluting technologies ( least in then conventional sense) we’re basing most of this tech on rare and pretty much unknown  reserves materials  like  platinum, tantalum and gallium  the latter two rather useful in semi conductors and solar panel construction.

Earth’s natural wealth: an audit – earth – 23 May 2007 – New Scientist Environment

This could prove lucrative, but Prichard is motivated by something far more significant than the chance of a quick buck. Platinum is a vital component not only of catalytic converters but also of fuel cells – and supplies are running out. It has been estimated that if all the 500 million vehicles in use today were re-equipped with fuel cells, operating losses would mean that all the world’s sources of platinum would be exhausted within 15 years. Unlike with oil or diamonds, there is no synthetic alternative: platinum is a chemical element, and once we have used it all there is no way on earth of getting any more. What price then pollution-free cities?

 There are  5 major currencies  Dollar, yen , Yuan, Euro and the Great British pound. I turned up at my bank Wells Fargo and their system didn’t have, so they claimed  pounds sterling, British pound, UKP or any other names that would let them accept the money until Monday where they call another office to validate the currency.  Every time, three to date, I’ve tried to convert  UK money within their branches it’s frustrating to the point of the , Hey why not just call me a fraud and get it out in the open.  Do I want to spend a day changing all my accounts and standing orders just to be free of these nincompoops  that but me bi-annually?

Seemingly you are your brothers keeper. More tin pot dictators engage in extortion and keep high school diplomas

In the why  our kid won’t go state schools department is yet another case of idiots ruining it for everyone. You can decide which side the idiots are on. Seemingly the person walking across a stage is responsible for the  conduct of the audience and can be penalized for it. Er why not penalize those disrupting it?.  I’m not sure if not getting the paper is  worth a fuss or if they are literally holding years worth of achievement to ransom. In the former big whoop  print your own at home. If the latter then it’s probably more disruptive than any over excited family  cheering for their kids.

 The state education board doesn’t support the tin pot dictators of district 205 either,  people  surprised  ” a total mystery” said one that family would do that to their kids.  Not one of the  educated  people  seems to think it possible that a great way to sink a  rival would be a few hoots at their graduation.. nice  blaming the victim is the hallmark of any good socialist accountability scheme:D  The next step is accepting guilt and doing their bidding and thanking them for being so generous.

Cheering ban costs five students their H.S. diplomas – CNN.com

School officials said they will hear students and parents out if they appeal. Meanwhile, the school said the five students can still get their diplomas by completing eight hours of public service work, answering phones, sorting books or doing other chores for the district, situated about 150 miles southwest of Chicago.

 

Paris and the bible the perfect match of spokesperson and product?

Seemingly the holier than though crowd are starved for role models that ANY hope of creating another zombie  to join their network of dead flesh eaters ( note they didn’t go for the brains) I’m shocked it’s not a  yellow guide to the bible  but then again as anything other than fiction it’s redundant to use the term idiot.

Wiretapped: Paris’s Not Sure Why So Many Tell Her the Bible is a “Good Book” – This Just In

Since being sentenced to prison, Paris has gained religion. No, she isn’t converting to Islam. She’s showing off her newly purchased self-help books, including the Bible

Naturally I had to comment.

Firstly what’s with the caps it seems that the more “devout” the more you shout. If your god a little hard of hearing, gaging by effectiveness of brayers (not a typo) , please don’t assume we don’t have the same affliction.

That any excuse to push your beliefs has sank so low to even find it worth passing judgment on the “poor little” rich girl  suggests that either you don’t read the book that your criticizing her for bandying about as some kind of magical talisman.

Or
 
You are right to wonder why any adult would buy that line of BS that’s not been indoctrinated since childhood  as it stretches credulity that even someone with the intellectual weight  of, well herself, would have problems with a fairy tale.

Either way you’ve managed to drag the fine pastime of discussing the lives of people you don’t know into disrepute by invoking such a tawdry,ego driven  and shallow being such as     the fiction god into a story about Paris.

Without a doubt this is one of the best websites I’ve ever seen reflect my feelings towards a brand.  Maybe I need to  widen my love list from things that are sharp, light up or go bang to add  anything that lessens the blow on the fiction of time?   I think I am resigned,  temporarily I hope, to the thought that I can’t afford a  vehicle that’s built to the same standard .

Are the “Stepford” talkshow hosts so scared of Ron Paul that they will pull the Nazi card?

Filed under media, Media mayhem, political, rants

 Just returned for a quick trip to lunch were the regrets of forgetting my MP3 player were brought into sharp relief by listening to some talk radio.    A caller was asked if his support of Ron Paul meant that he enjoyed April the 20th which younger readers is not  a pro marijuana celebration  but the birth date  of Hitler.

The Rationale being that  Paul has written articles that appear in publications that have far more extreme views than I believe him to hold  ergo he is a  white supremacist and  crypto facist. ( which is a hell of a stretch given that Guiliani is running at least on the latter point. )   Given that Paul voted against  detainment without end,  snooping without boundaries,  war without end  then these talking asses playing the Hitler card  so soon means that the trained attack poodles are worried or are as stupid as their mustaches make them look.

From  Winston Smith news agency.

A gay pub in the city of Melbourne has won the right
to ban heterosexuals – the first time such legislation has been passed
in Australia.


First of all I don’t believe the pub itself is gay, ok it has strong men  barreling through the tradesman’s entrance,  but here’s the worst kind of law you can possibly enact. After years, decades , training the public to be tolerant  and ensuring  that private prejudices aren’t allowed to be displayed in the public square  here comes the state to enforce the natural  right for a small group  that they’ve removed from the general population.

Australia’s equal opportunity laws prevent discrimination based on race, religion or sexuality but not  intelligence so I can call the State of Victoria ( named after an old Queen ..coincidence? )  ‘king tards that should be hounded off the continent and made to return to England.

Been a long run.  My favorite  entertainment podcast  “Never not funny” has  had a change in lineup which  has  , and I know it’s  unfair maybe to judge the first show after the affair as being representative of where it’s going , eviscerated the joy the show held for me.  Oddly enough the dynamic I enjoyed the most  that from the dearly departed Mike Schmidt  and Jimmy Pardo  whose ironic  bumper sticker now seems sadly prescient. I needed the real world  “crunchiness”  of Mike  juxtaposed against the   Hollywood “phony”   with a straight man  thrown in to really  show how good those two were.. Sigh…   

I think a lesson  from Episode 59 should be   in the immortal ( not yet anyway) words of Stephen Lynch “I’d never say cunt to an audience”

Still I recommend  you buy the CD compiled from the first 20 shows /it rocks.

I hate this story, I was even pissed off at Erin for telling me about it but it won’t go away.   Oh the headlines?  Well I like people to get upset and angry as I am   yet oddly enough it’s not at the people involved , Moi ces’t lightning rod ( we know how much god hated those things too.

Woman: Blame devil for infant in microwave – CNN.com

A woman blames the devil, and not her husband, for severely burning their infant daughter in a microwave, a Texas television station reported.

Eva Marie Mauldin said Satan compelled her 19-year-old husband, Joshua Royce Mauldin, to microwave their daughter May 10 because the devil disapproved of Joshua’s efforts to become a preacher.

And the mother wants the kid back. I just hope the devil’s next set of instructions to the “innocent” preacher wannabe  are welding her birth canal closed.

Weak end and recording fun ( yeah finally I’m producing podcasts)

Ok  let me first dispense with the maladies.  After a shot at the Dr’s and a  pill ( singulair) and a nose spray  to free up my nose I woke up SORE the day after to which I attributed to Erin 🙂 Sadly that wasn’t the case and over the next few days  nearly every muscle when  resistance is applied to it hurts.  Couldn’t open dishwasher,  get in a couple  of doors in the house  lift  coffee pot without both hands etc.. Less than happy.. Thankfully I am getting my grip back. 

Losing my grip.  Nearly did that last night.   I was helping out a friend that has a book coming out   record a podcast / vidcast. So I thought . The c0-author brought along a camera person that has no camera, no back up and  eschewed my  rather much better 3ccdDV  to shoot on D8, I shit you  not. ( i’ve nothing against d8 other than I don’t have a fucking deck to import it with)   Using onboard sound. That was enough fun  but NO   he had a vision!   Handheld camera for the hour, compressors HATE hand held , did I mention my cam as OIS?, and then ran out of the only tape.  

Sometimes you know the most interesting thing is the subject matter and not those creating it 🙂    For my part I mic’ed up the two people with lavalier mics and  used the Zoom h4 to record and what a nice job it did too. The Zoom is a pain in the ass in the field , I had everything set up , then boom battery warning came on,  replaced those but all the settings had defaulted.Anyway a separate article on that follows. Hands are once again tired.

With regards to the amnesty  comprehensive immigration plan  I continued to be amused.  This plan  penalizes new legal immigrants,  provides a benefit for those   “proving” their  presence in the country prior to Jan 2007.

Quote of the day:   er WTF you have to be kidding me that the term opportunity has been  divorced from unskilled.

CNN.com – Breaking News, U.S., World, Weather, Entertainment & Video News

Liberals say the bill is unfair because it limits opportunities for unskilled workers.

Jerry Falwell, faith-based fraud. – By Christopher Hitchens – Slate Magazine

“The discovery of the carcass of Jerry Falwell on the floor of an obscure office in Virginia has almost zero significance, except perhaps for two categories of the species labeled “credulous idiot.”

Seemingly the people that were all over Imus for his inane and ignorant remarks  can not wait to fall over the fallen over Jerry Falwell.  Seemingly being an outrageously intolerant  bigot  is ok  if it’s heartfelt and lip service is paid to the “offended”

That being said  I had a weird day. Work, oh my I never talk about work,   was the best of times, and the worst of times  in the reverse order.  The upside is that something that I’ve wanted to do for well over a year will come to pass though it was an odd route to get there.    So two major things this year have gone my way though it’s  really Emperor’s clothes  when all is said and done.  I never learned to shut up:D   Now stage three. To make all error messages  relate to the Monty Python films.I’m totally  serious I want my programs to  allow me to select a personality and then  be as obsequious or insouciant as I can handle..

I do beg your humble pardon sir  but, and I’m sure it’s my error, would you mind providing me with your username and password again as I appear to have lost them.  Dickens to Dickhead 

idiot! Can’t you recall your password?

Tomorrow night at the Paper Heart in Phoenix  Ms Lili Von Schtupp and her puppies will be entertaining us with her burlesque act. This is a suggestion you should go:)
