Crazy Bastard

Am I the only one who is perfectly comforatble with this?

Are you in my blind spot when I want to change lanes? I’ll “accidentally” swerve a bit. Maybe pick up my phone and pretend to be distracted by it. This was effective in the TDI, it’s even more effective in the Hummer…

Most people want to prove that they aren’t intimidated, and simultaneously like to pretend themselves superior. Being an outright dick doesn’t work.

Do stupid, crazy shit on purpose, and they just bitch about that oblivious idiot that almost hit them as they get the fuck out of your way.

WTF is a MGTOW?

A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.

Now that the fish have thrown away all their bicycles, why are they even more pissed off than they already were? They got exactly what they wanted.

Why do they complain that they can’t find a good bike, immediately after being rejected by the most expensive bike they’ve ever seen?

Why do they list off a bunch of material attributes that a good bike should have, yet look into their past and every seat-less bike they’ve ridden is the total opposite, most of which don’t even have tires, a chain, paint, handlebars… You’re not even sure most of them actually are bikes at all, but a small, sad heap of rusting junk that she calls an “alpha bike” to make herself feel better about having rammed hundreds of them up her hooch… You know, maybe having watched that happen a few dozen times is, all by itself, a good enough reason for the expensive bikes to reject her? Not to mention all the other character failings such behavior exposes…

You’d think the only thing less useful to a Fish, than a Bicycle, would be Crocodile Tears; yet we find them in abundance. The salt mining is real… Have you ever seen a fish cry?

Real men possess the intellect to call the bluff.

Turns out, women aren’t fish after all. Without men to mooch off of, they get grumpy. Do you need the bicycle, or want the bicycle? There’s a difference.

You can re-label the betas you’re left with as alphas, but it won’t make it true. A bad boy is exactly that, a boy, who isn’t even good at it. If they were worth a damn, you wouldn’t have a collection of them drooling over your inappropriate selfies…

The deeper they sink into their delusions, the more obvious the choice to forget about women becomes.

No longer fit for purpose.

Obsolete.

Too narcissistic to realize that they no longer do the choosing. This one is the most hilarious, I think. They complain about not being asked out by “good men,” yet still can’t grasp that it’s because it is they who are not measuring up; which is why nobody is asking them out. They aren’t being picked. They aren’t being chosen. Yet, they still think they can lay out demands…

They sit in judgement of men as if men don’t have agency or choice in the matter. As if men aren’t using their own standards and judgement to weed them out. As if their trashy so-called “standards” they throw out after being rejected aren’t exposing all of the negative, ugly, un-feminine, petty, materialistic, selfish, greedy, entitled, lack of good character… Get rejected, act like a bitch and remove all doubt that rejecting her was the right move. Do you really think that’s ever going to work out?

You have the right to be a trash whore.

I have the right to avoid trash whores.

If you were worth knowing, you’d appreciate a man who bothers to notice the difference between seed and chaff… But, you are the chaff, and you’re pissed about it. Being chaff is bad enough, being a bitch on top of it is appealing to nobody, and compounds the problem instead of fixing it.

This is “Why can’t I find a good man?”

Even when they’re not dumb or a whore, or both…

What “top man” wants a macho woman? They make men of themselves. They lack all feminine traits. They’re like cross-dressers, but worse… If I admired and desired masculine qualities; I’d be gay!

So, no straight man wants a macho girl, obviously. Because he’s not gay and he likes femininity. A gay man wants an actual man. These “strong, independent, successful women” are judging themselves through their own lens. They see themselves embodying all the traits that they want in a partner, failing to realize that these are all masculine traits. They refuse to ever listen to a man talk about what he wants, so how could they realize that men don’t want the same things because they’re men? They lash out with man hate, “not man enough,” “intimidated.” Nope. Manly men don’t want manly women, and you are a manly woman. The victims of feminism are the women who fall for this “be macho” crap. Equal does not mean identical, but you made yourself identical. Only the most screwed-up, desperate, pathetic men are going to settle for this… Yet they think they’re entitled to own a collection of money and stuff attached to a man’s body. And he better be half her age and ripped, too… Why? Women project their lit fuse biology, too. Acting like a man won’t make menopause go away. Men don’t have to be young to fertilize an egg. They’ve got it completely backwards, and posture themselves as angry and ready to back stab any man they meet for not meeting them sooner… You don’t really have to worry about kids being screwed over, because they’re too old to have any… Who would want such a screwed-up person? They’re not usually bad people, they’re simply undesirable to a real man.

Man, he did it again…

Real People in a Real Relationship.

The unfortunate reality is that no woman wants this. They want soulless, hormonal simpletons they can line up for attention whoring on social media, wake up at 2pm after neglecting the 5 kids they already have by 5 different so-called fathers which they can’t even identify, and scroll down the list to decide which pathetic tool they’re going to use today.

Real men are not wanted because we won’t allow that shit.

No woman wants a real, committed relationship. They want The OC, Desperate Housewhores, and the Cartrashians. They want to be nothing but a disgusting savage, with a list of faux-men on social media just as bad as she is, that she calls “alpha” males. They’re not even people anymore… Why develop a mind, heart, and soul, when you can just be a fuck hole and demand that men be no better? Feminism tells women that all they need to be is the hole they were born with, and pretend to be oppressed, bitch and complain until men give them all the free stuff and privileges they demand. Reinforce the worst female stereotypes. Elevating to equality? Really? Fucking ridiculous… Could you get any lower?

I can’t be interested in bestiality even if I try. I have standards and women just don’t make the cut anymore.

Be all liberated and “equal” to the worst pig of a faux-man you can imagine.

You have the right to be a trashy whore.

I have the right to standards.

No. I don’t date a lot anymore. I don’t have to. Women wear this trashiness on their sleeves now. I don’t have to waste time and money going on dates to find out they don’t measure up. I can tell from across the room. They’re proud to be garbage…

MGTOW? I guess… I went my own way a long time ago simply by having a brain in a society of disgusting garbage… Gender had little to do with it. Best choice I ever made.

No matter how much money I make, or don’t make, there’s no payoff because this society has nothing to offer me. It’s been emptied out. They’re empty, nothing, animal savages. Feral humans are the norm, and I have no place in it, nor do I want one.

Be the monkey that flings the most poo. Be the biggest turd in the bowl. Whatever. Even if you take first place at the Special Olympics, you’re still retarded.

Fuck off, losers.

Women just can’t stop celebrating the gutter…

Tyranny with Manners

Tyranny with manners is still tyranny.

Lies with manners are still lies.

Adding manners to deception, fraud, and malice does not validate those things. It taints and invalidates manners.

Which is why I don’t waste manners on people who stoop low enough to play that game.

Eat shit and die, cuntbag. You get what you give. If you’ve never witnessed me conducting myself in a polite manner; that says something about you for not even once having deserved it.

Notice:

1) There is no definition of a shotgun in Florida Section 790; Definitions.
2) The bold phrase at the very top; “except where the context otherwise requires” is what activist judges use to alter the definition of the definitions to suit their agenda and functionally nullifies the definitions. The definitions can mean whatever they want them to mean.

This tells us that we cannot trust these facts to remain facts, and legislating from the bench is tacitly encouraged.

790.221 Possession of short-barreled rifle, short-barreled shotgun, or machine gun; penalty.

(1) It is unlawful for any person to own or to have in his or her care, custody, possession, or control any short-barreled rifle, short-barreled shotgun, or machine gun which is, or may readily be made, operable; but this section shall not apply to antique firearms.
(2) A person who violates this section commits a felony of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.
(3) Firearms in violation hereof which are lawfully owned and possessed under provisions of federal law are excepted.
History.—s. 10, ch. 69-306; s. 1, ch. 89-312; s. 21, ch. 93-406; s. 1217, ch. 97-102.

This is the part that actually helps us. It essentially means that we defer to Federal Law.

Since the Mossberg 590 Shockwave does not fit the Federal definition of a shotgun, the Florida definition of a short-barreled-shotgun does not apply, since shotgun is not defined at any point. It cannot be a short-barreled-shotgun if it is not a shotgun in the first place.

If we ignore that, as a neo-soviet activist with a badge or gavel would, we are still left with 790.221(3). So, even if an activist judge/cop wants to invent a definition of “shotgun” that doesn’t exist in statute in order to cause the short-barrel-shotgun definition to apply, 790.221(3) muzzles them with clearly stated Federal deference. It’s not a shotgun, so it can’t be a short-barreled-something-it’s-not.

This satisfies my concerns, but it does still leave some questions unanswered.

It looks possible for the ATF to re-categorize the Mossberg 590 Shockwave as a Destructive Device. It also makes the similar Destructive Device definition in Florida Statue circular if an activist wants to invent a definition.

It also means that if your LGS calls it a “pistol” or “handgun” on the 4473, it would instantly become an unregistered smooth-bore AOW. If your LGS calls it a “shotgun,” it instantly becomes an unregistered SBS. I can’t imagine why this mistake would be made, but if your LGS calls it a “rifle,” it’s an instant SBR. They have to list it as “firearm” in the 4473 transfer or one word on a piece of paper bones you with no change to the item…

This also means, to me, that, even if your shotgun really is a shotgun, because it was “born” with a shoulder-stock; you could still put a pistol grip on it as long as the barrel remained 18+ inches long, and the overall length was still 26+ inches long. So, if you are the 5th owner of a shotgun purchased with a PGO, and you have no idea if it was “born” PGO or Shoulder Stock, you can go at least that far without worrying.

There is also the possibility that, since the 26in number is arbitrary and based upon the ATF’s whimsical and capricious notion of “concealable;” that if you were to conceal it, the AOW categorization might magically apply. So, if you intent to carry, open carry only.

I am not a lawyer. God willing, I never will be. This is my understanding of what I can read with logic applied. Government rarely involves logic. Thus, this is not advice.

It was never about Open Carry

The case brought the the Florida Supreme Court regarding Open Carry went exactly as we expected. Open Carry has been struck in favor of agenda-driven nonsense.

I was never interested in this case through any hope that the corruption of the Judicial Branch Would suddenly and magically be lifted. I was interested in it because the verbal acrobatics, logical dysfunction, and cognitive dissonance needed to make their positions seem justifiable would essentially out them.

The meat of it is that the Justices responsible for the majority opinion made their decision on a hypothetical. Which is a reprehensible abortion of jurisprudence. On it’s face, they knew it would not stand. They know full well that their desired position has not a leg to stand on. Which is why it was accompanied by deceptions even worse.

Not only was their finding based upon a hypothetical, they pretended facts unavailable, thus the need for the hypothetical. They denied evidence that opposed their desired agenda, and invented hypothetical pseudo-facts to replace that evidence.

We’ve seen this pattern of corruption growing throughout the past several decades of our once great nation’s decay. The Left has made an art of it. But, it’s time to recognize that this is not merely a Left vs Right battle. This is a Corruption vs Decency battle. Favor comes to any who help the Corrupt get away with what they do.

This has been the most transparent and obvious example of the deception tactics our government has learned to use against us. This is not merely a “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.” It has become a thing much worse. This is “The Emperor has no clothes, and he’s shoving it in our face.”

This is the barest that this declaration of War against Decent Americans by the Government and it’s sycophants has yet been. They’re not even trying to hide it anymore. They’re flaunting their corruption right in our face and daring us to take action against them.

This was never really about Open Carry. It was about just how far they were willing to go to justify their violations, and whether they were willing to stretch the lies so thin that we can see right through them. This is about the enemies of freedom among us, having grown so confident, comfortable and bold, that they no longer fear reprisal.

No doubt, there are many who are happy and agree with the findings because it suits their own agendas. But, do these same people then not also complain of the power being amassed by the chipping away of the limitations placed against government? Will they not realize that this is the same old Government ploy to divide and conquer? That the same power added to Government today, giving them their gloating ego trips, will eventually be turned against them? That no one is safe from a Government that acts so flagrantly?

Concealed Carry 007 wannabees don’t seem to realize they’ve sided with the anti-gun lobby. The consequences will be reaped, and the same Concealed Carriers will cry about it…

Not another TheBlaze article…

There are several things wrong here.

1) I think homosexuality is wrong.
2) I don’t like the promotion of sexual activity to children.
3) Implanting totally unrelated political agendas into a classic storyline is absurd.

Even though I have no reason to do so, I’m going to erase point 1. IT is useless for debate because the root is fundamental, and we’ll just discount each other’s position outright. I’m right, you’re wrong, end of discussion.

2 and 3 are the point of discussion.

2:
We already see The Left promoting the idea of trans-age-ism… There’s no such thing as a pedophile, there’s just young people in old bodies… Just the same as the absurdity of a man in a woman’s body, or that Shuan King is the slightest bit black. Trans shit is bullshit. I will also concede that Blaire White is my favorite fucked-up weirdo.

It is wrong to promote sexual concepts to the pre-pubescent. Period. It doesn’t matter if it’s one I agree with or not. The conflation of hetero-normative as a contrast to that is a lie.

Love does not have to be sexual.

Heterosexuality is the biological normal; our species disappears without it. It does not compete with, displace, oppress, or prevent anything else. If you want to be a fucked up weirdo, that’s fine. Go do it. But, don’t promote it. Especially not to children, you sick fuckers.

3:
If I stick an “all men should suck dick” bumper sticker on the Mona Lisa, that’d be disgusting.

If I hang a “heterosexuality is the best” sign around the neck of Michaelangelo’s David, that’d be disgusting, too.

It doesn’t matter if I agree or disagree with the message. It’s wrong to put it there.

The conflation of art and propaganda in The West has become absurd and is a major contributor to uncultured, uneducated trash being the norm.

There is no more education, only indoctrination.

There is no more culture, only feral humans sniffing each others’ asses and pounding gonads like a fucking petting zoo.

Human relationships are dead. It’s nothing but animal savagery now. This shit is a major causal factor.

There is only one solution to “terror”

Stop being afraid and start being prepared.

If they had flown the planes into the capital building instead of the world trade center, they’d be our best friends instead of our worst enemies… But, as outlined below, it could still work out just fine and cost nothing.

Coulda, woulda, shoulda…

If you hear some asshole yell “Allahu ackbar!” pump him full of lead before he finishes the sentence. That’s how the Hebrews deal with them. Oh, and that giant wall. And razor wire. And machine guns all over it…

Yelling that anywhere, ever, is the same as yelling “Fire!” in a movie theater. It’s not protected speech because it is not a form of expression, it is designed to cause panic and harm, if not merely preclude even worse…

Let them come. They’ll kill off all the pussies in the liberal urban center safe spaces. But, then they’ll all die when they set foot outside city limits where the real Americans live. Solves two problems at once. The ragheads purge the democrats, the republicans purge the ragheads. And we don’t have to spend a single penny on wars, national security, or extreme vetting to do it. We’ve already got plenty of ammo out here in flyover country.

On Snowflakes

I’ve been thinking about Snowflakes, Safe Spaces, and Echo Chambers.

Gaslighting

If you were as outrageously detached from reality as Snowflakes and The Ebonic Plague are, maybe you’d try to warp other peoples’ perception of reality to meet your own delusions? Maybe you’re not a propagandist mastermind. Maybe you’re just so severely fucked up that you do this without even knowing it.

Kinda like a woman.

Maybe you’re so wrapped up on hormones and instincts, and conflating them as feelings and emotions, and this concept was presented to you and learned as a child. Maybe your understanding of morality and logic is so crude and rudimentary, that the only thing you really know is spitting out lines and putting on acts until something works to get you what you want? Maybe you’re not deliberately deceptive, selfish, and manipulative. Maybe it’s all you’ve ever known and it’s normal to you. Maybe that’s why you don’t see anything wrong with it. Maybe your mental, emotional, and social development is stunted because socializing itself is reduced to a petting zoo level. Maybe there really is such a thing as being a product of your environment when the echo chamber bubble is so well sealed off that the mere suggestion has never managed to get through?

Such a thing is possible, and I’ve recently observed it. The Trump Wiretapping reporting. There are real reasons why Trump believes it to be true. But, you’d never know it watching the media. This isn’t about Fake News per-say. It’s about the absolute control of information they have.

They can simply blackout information to keep on promoting the “Trump has no proof” narrative.

Which doesn’t even make sense. But, since when does the Democrats’ narrative need to make sense?

Democrats have perfected the art of the cover-up. They do so much dirty shit they’ve had to. They know full well what an investigation is because they are the ultimate professionals in hiding things during one. They know full well that the whole fucking point of investigating is to find the proof. Of course he doesn’t have it right now. All he’s got is reasonable, articulable suspicion. That’s where every investigation starts. Fucking duh.

Why is it that when they’re running cover-ups they can navigate every bureaucratic delay and loop hole that nobody else has even heard of, but when it’s the other guy catching them in the act, suddenly they have no idea how this works and the media’s ability to report it all wrong is in perfect lockstep?

Nobody notices this? It’s the same pattern ever since Democrats and their Media lapdogs have existed.

Digital Security Stuffs

It was a damn pleasure to read this article.

It’s a rare find that someone can speak on this topic without speaking out their ass. And, it’s nice to know I’m not alone… I’ve come to all the same conclusions for all the same reasons.

It seems Apple took the FBI’s threat to the 4th and 5th Amendments pretty damned seriously. Android is playing catch up for the first time ever, and Google doesn’t seem to be caring that much…

I find it ironic that the likes of Google and Facebook showed up to back Apple on this, while they still do everything they think they can get away with to censor free speech and drive the neo-soviet narrative on their platforms. When have Google, Facebook or Apple cared about the EFF? Why does Apple still block almost all crypto-apps on their app store?

Intel has still not provided a satisfactory answer to my AMT/(i)EM IPMI-turned-SkyNet concerns

You’ll also notice a slight-of-hand in their response… Stating that their CPUs don’t have any EM vulnerabilities. Well, duh. EM isn’t in the CPUs. It’s in the northbridge chipset. So, they provided an answer to a question that wasn’t asked.

If one can upload a firmware so fundamental to the operation of the system that it can actually fix/dodge errata; it can install an undetectable OOB keylogger with no end-user knowledge even when the machine appears to be turned off, too. I’m not suggesting that’s why they invented it. Simply that it can be used to do this. Their current security-through-obscurity model means pretty much anyone could do this to any AMT-equipped Intel platform.

After that comes the motherboards I got in the mail that had BIOS versions that didn’t match downloadable checksums. Oh, but that’s not all… The checksums matched when I was at home on clearnet. But, they didn’t match when downloaded via tor or from a random WiFi… MIM the ISPs much, guvtrash? Go ahead and let them break into certain things… Let the hubris flow…

Fun With Snowflakes

Generic: [pirate voice]Yaarrr! Trigger me timers![/pirate vice]

Feminazis:

“lyterature,” “womyn” and other substitutions of the letter “y” are a subconscious manifestation of penis envy resulting from their absent “y” chromosome. True facts.

And my Valentine’s Day poem to Feminazis:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
You’re gonna get raped
Cuz I’m bigger than you

Black Li(v)es Matter: This one is my favorite. It’s poetic and has so much specific meaning in it.

We’re not supposed to call them shitskins, or niggers, or any other “bad” words. Police the language. Ad Hominem, etc…

So, to faux-respect that, we hearken back to the days of yore. Remember the good ol’ Bubonic Plague? The Black Death?

Remember that bullshit of actually teaching “ebonics?”

The Ebonic Plague.

I like this for so many reasons…

1) I’m not racist. I just like to set off the shitheads. [virtue signal warning] The two hottest girls I’ve ever *ahem* been with, were black. I mean, stupid hot…

2) I like the finer point. It’s pretty common for actual racists to use “nigger” or “shitskin,” so using those terms comes with the stigma and doesn’t describe that I am singling out a specific group of black people, not referring to all black people.

The Ebonic Plague. The perfect description of the precise demographic I mean to name. A true masterpiece of wordsmithing.

Nailed it!

I normally wouldn’t link TheBlaze, but this time, Walsh absolutely nailed it.

This is why I live in the woods and speak to no one. The tiniest hint of intellect or decorum and you’ll be buried under a mountain of hate from the trash-turned-normal that rules American Society.

This is why Jerry Springer went off the air. It did not stop being hilarious to watch trash make a spectacle of itself. Trash became the norm and there’s none left to see the problem.

Western Societies have become Lord of the Flies meets Charles Manson, in a post-pubescent petting zoo for feral humans who are so damned proud of themselves for it.

This is why I wear my PJs to Wal Mart and speak like an illiterate buffoon; I don’t want to stand out. I can’t carry that much ammo. But, I’m workin’ on it.

Besides, it keeps the gold-diggers away… I have standards.

Solar Array Help – III

Sorting out Solar Power is really not hard, when you can get the facts. The problem is the “do the thinking for you” attitude that has cropped up as a result of Snowflakes demanding it. Wading through the “user friendly” bullshit in search of reality is really hard, because the whole point is to hide reality and insulate the Snowflakes so they don’t get triggered, cry, demand a refund, and leave a bad review; all because they’re so stupid they can’t figure out anything, ever. And., worse, instead of learning, they believe they’re entitled to not learning and forcing someone else to do everything for them.

While I admit I haven’t been applying myself full-time to the project, I’ve finally got it sorted out.

MidNite Solar Kid.
AIMS PICOGLF12KW48V240VS.
Salvaged Chevy Volt (LG Chem) Batteries.

Kids can be daisy-chained and made to work in parallel.

But, wait. The Kid has no way to handle Lithiums as they want to be handled.

Wanna bet?

We really can’t expect MidNite to come up with a preset for everything. Especially not salvaged batteries which were never meant for this.

The full range of the LG Chem Lithium cells is 4.15v to 3v. They’re perfectly linear between 4 and 3.5, at a slant which covers 80% of their capacity!

You can’t use 80% of a Pb/H2SO4 cell if you want it to last more than a month.

4 * 12 = 48

3.5 * 12 = 42

A “12v battery” means 12v nominal. They actually charge at significantly higher voltages. This won’t be a problem, though, because the Kid can be set to nominal = actual. So this is a non-problem.

The PICOGLF12KW48V240VS has two source-power priority modes which simultaneously select two different voltage ranges. It’s still Pb-centric, but since we’ll never hook this up to any A/C input power, and always run on battery no matter what, it essentially gives us two voltage ranges. This also means the not-gonna-work-at-all charger doesn’t have to be worried about. One of those select-able ranges is 44v for Low Batt Warning, and 42v for Low Batt Cut Off. The Low Batt Warning also triggers the built in contactor that could be used to start a generator. It can carry 16 amps, not that I care…

So, the major hurdle is nullifying some of the features in the Kid that are used for Pb but which would destroy a Lithium.

BULKMPPT mode is “Pump all of the amps!” mode. This is default behavior.
BULKMPPT mode stops when the ABSORB voltage is reached.
ABSORB continues for a specified ABSORB TIME. If ABSORB TIME is set to a number appropriate for Pb, it would kill Li.
Once ABSORB TIME is reached, FLOAT is triggered.
FLOAT is a perpetual trickle charge meant to combat natural failings inside Pb cells which do not exist in Li cells. If allowed, FLOAT would destroy Li cells.
REBULK is the point at which we tell the Kid to go back to “Pump all of the amps!” mode. Set REBULK to 45v
We go in a circle.

So, just do this:

Set ABSORB value to 48.1v.
Set ABSORB time to 0.
Set FLOAT to a value drastically below anything the battery could ever reach. It will never happen because the battery is at 48.1v when this condition is checked.
We go directly to IDLE mode. The Kid just sits there waiting for the batteries to reach REBULK.

Exactly what we want for our salvaged LG Chem Lithiums; dump all of the amps until 48.1v, then do nothing until it’s amp dump time again. We’ll have to do some re-wiring… But, we don’t have to break the bricks, and the really cool native cooling system stays intact. I’ll probably re-stack them with allthread…

One may notice that the REBULK voltage is set to 1v above the Low Batt Warning/Gen Start trigger. Won’t sag give you a false positive? Not really. You’re thinking like Pb again! These totally badass LG chem batteries can deliver 350KW pulses out of a mere 16KW pack without sag! I’m going to have 4x of them. So, I’d have to have a 1.4MEGAWATT load to induce a false trigger. The PICOGLF12KW48V240VS would blow up at 0.036MW (it’s surge capacity is 3x rated). So, not a problem.

Aux charger and generator are not selected. I’ll probably just use that cheap 8KW China Freight Generator. I have the smaller version and it’s badass little machine if you know a few simple tricks. I bought the 8KW for my parents, and it’s every bit as badass. It’s no Listeroid, but that’s an upgrade for another day…

A Polished Turd by Any Other Name…

My tubes are slightly tighter than the WIX/NAPA filter. They’re 46mm/1.811in spec, calculated from the ID + wall thickness. These are foundry nominal numbers, and tolerance applies. Tubes are never perfectly round. That’s why the suggestions I constantly get on YouTube from wannabe machinists to use the calipers to measure the ID are silly (1: tubes aren’t round. 2: the threads go deeper than the caliper ears can reach. 3: arc deflection; not super important at this size, but it’s still there.).

This is why plug gauges exist. Plug gauges were invented by people who are much smarter than the people who say “Just measure it with your caliper!” These people I group, along with the “just use teflon tape” people as “people who are a danger to themselves and everyone around them.” People from whom I take no advise because I like not exploding. The kind of people who would make a zip gun out of pipes and not understand that they’re setting off a bomb in their hands… The kind of people that say “stand back and hold my beer, you ain’t gonna believe this shit!” There are a lot of know-it-alls who don’t.

There are laymen who give advice on topics they know nothing about. There are people who are authorities on these topics who try to prevent these laymen from getting people killed. Both have to use language relate-able to the person they’re trying to help. The nerds who know, often fail to do this and their points are missed. The nerds who do, often get lumped in as “just another know-it-all” simply because of the non-technical language used to relate to non-technically educated people. Cue, salesmen and Internet trolls…

Some people fully turn the ID and OD to get true numbers (there is still deflection in deep holes), but what we’re working with here is such a crude instrument, all the fancy stuff is polishing a turd. All it really does is make people who don’t know any better think that it’s special… It serves no practical functional use and adds expense.

While there are technical reasons why turning ID/OD matters in many applications, those circumstances do not exist here. Sometimes, engineering nerds get carried away…

…unless the material is badly out of spec. In which case, you have bigger problems and that material shouldn’t be used to begin with due to problems introduced in the imbalanced extrusion process that caused the deformation. It’s completely pointless to argue about it. But, salespeople often know what you don’t, and keep it to themselves as they blow smoke up your ass.

I prefer spending the money where it counts, rather than brag about how much time and money I spent polishing a turd. My products are intended for persons of a similar mindset. If you;d like to imagine that turning the ID and OD matter under these circumstances, it’s a free country. You can believe whatever the fancy nerds tell you. I’m every bit as much of a fancy nerd. The difference is; I’m not a bullshitter.

Dear Politically Correct FedEx HR Department

I really don’t care that you stick to a “strictly black people from the worst area in Jacksonville” hiring policy. You do whatever you want. But, you should be aware that it is having a detrimental effect on your business.

Why?

Democrats. Media.

Sure, there’s a lot of backlash about Social Justice Warriors and Fake News calling everyone but themselves Fake News… The problem is the targeted demographic.

The people you are hiring are brainwashed and terrified to deliver packages outside of city limits. Today was the first time I managed to actually talk to one of your delivery people.

Usually, I hear the van coming down my driveway. They usually don’t even make it all the way down. I can see them from my kitchen window. Eyes wide open. Cussing to themselves. Sometimes they make multiple phone calls to I’m not sure who. They sit there gripping the steering wheel like it could save them if I really were the trigger-happy KKK redneck they’ve been told I am… $10,000 package, signature required? Fuck that, toss it on the ground and peel out. Dirt, gravel and grass flying… And these are the times that the box actually makes it sort-of to me. More often, they toss it on a neighbor’s porch. Or worse, not even in the same neighborhood. Packages are occaisonally delivered to addresses that in no way resemble mine, miles away. I guess once you hear banjos, it’s all the same, right?

But, for the last few days, I decided to force the system… I had a rather important package full of sandblaster repair and upgrade parts mis-delivered to, uhm, somewhere. So I just let FedEx deal with it. Called them up, described the situation. The gears slowly turned… They even called back to follow up, but, of course, only to let me know that they know nothing, driver says package delivered. Yes, sure, but not to me. Again.

So, how do I end up with my packages? It’s become a bit of a neighborhood joke that my neighbors provide “last mile” delivery for me. We do it for each other, but it happens to me the most. And it’s always FedEx. UPS, DHL, USPS, no problem. The entire region has taken to requesting “no FedEx” any time we order something online. Why? Because every UPS driver I’ve ever seen is white. Every DHL driver I’ve ever seen is white. Every USPS driver I’ve ever seen is white.

Now don’t get your race card out and play it just yet. I ranted about Stupid People a while back. The sole non-stupid person I dealt with, the Wilson Trucking fellow, was black. I couldn’t have asked for better service or more professional attitude. This is not about me being racist becaue I’m not. I will use the word “nigger” to troll a douche bag if s/he is also black, just because it suits and it’s funny to watch them get triggered, but I digress…

This is about racist media and racist democrat politicians pumping urban black people so full of fear that it’s affecting business. I don’t want some poor guy to have a heart attack if he just happens to show up to deliver a package while I’m dumping a few mags on my personal range… It’s just a gun. Calm your tits… smh.

I represent an entire region of Suwannee County, FL that goes out of our way to request “no FedEx” because of this problem. There is a wide area, a few hundred mile radius from Jacksonville, which is serviced by this same FedEx terminal. So, it is logical to conclude that we aren’t the only ones who this happens to, and who have implemented such a “please, no FedEx” policy. How much money is FedEx losing because of this propaganda and their seemingly benevolent desire to give jobs to what they’ve been told are “underprivileged” poor helpless black people? Seriously, how can you think of blacks as stupid and helpless and not be racist as all fuck? Anyway…

I have some shipments/vendors who only use FedEx or DHL. I select DHL even though they’re more expensive. I use UPS whenever USPS is not an option. USPS is preferred, by far. Cheap as dirt, faster than all the others put together, and only one lost package (I’m excluding the aftermath of the fraudulent investigations in which an external agency deliberately scrambled up the packages they searched with rubber-stamped warrants, and also planted evidence, because there was nothing else they could do to cause me trouble) in the entire time I’ve been shipping product. ONE out of tens of thousands! I’ve used the others only a few dozen times, with a roughly 40% failure rate on top of costing several hundred percent more… The argument to privatize is, uh, not there.

If you’re going to go out of your way to hire only inner-city black people who have been brainwashed by democrats and the media, do them and yourselves a favor and tell them not to listen to the bullshit. It’s hurting your business and makes black people look incompetent.

Even the SCSO is coming around to realize that the stuff they’ve been told by the Feds, the FDLE, and other Law Enforcement Agencies, and statist douche bags that I’ve removed from my life, about me, is a load of bullshit. How many rubber-stamped fraudulent investigations have bourne no fruit? How many attempts to plant drugs and machine guns on my property? How many inappropriate message from cops posing as underage kids on social media? I’ve lost count. The effort to slander me and make some kind of false charge stick has been huge. Yet, still nothing.

I have one dick neighbor that calls the SO every time I shoot, which is not very often and always during appropriate hours. The last time they showed up for such a call, I managed to coax the Deputy out of his car (after asking me “You’re not going to shoot me, are you?”) to pop off a few rounds with me. Even the cops are afraid…

But, they’ve all been white, except for one black Deputy who was a complete asshole…

If the cops and I can find a way to get along, or at least act like it, I think anybody should be so able… Come on, FedEx.

Almost 4 years ago…

I wanted to hold on to this one for a while, just to make a point.

You were playing pool against a guy who is legally blind and just barely won. And still, only because I let you win. Because I knew you were a fedpig and I wanted to feed your already overblown ego.

Overconfidence is a guvthug’s greatest weakness. Act submissive and weak. They’re animals and thrive on body language signals, inflection, etc. They think they’re “reading” people.

Reality is that they’re over-hormonal animals which makes it easy to cross their wires by faking the behaviors they’re “trained” to interpret.

The most predictable quality of the neuro-typical is their ability to forget that I am not one of them.

It’s not that cops are crap. It’s that crap is hand-picked for the job by much larger turds. The demented people are already out there. It’s those doing the hiring that seek these defectives…

St. John v. McColley 653 F.Supp.2d 1155 (2009)
“…lawful possession of a loaded firearm in a crowded place could not, by itself, create a reasonable suspicion sufficient to justify an investigatory detention.”

US v. Ubiles, 224 F.3d 213 (2000)
“…it is not a crime to possess a firearm… even when standing in a crowd. Second, the anonymous tipster who approached the authorities had said nothing that would indicate that Ubiles possessed the gun unlawfully (e.g., without registration); that he was committing or about to commit a crime; or that he posed a threat to the officers or anyone in the crowd. Therefore, the stop and subsequent search were unjustified because the precondition for a Terry stop was not present in this case.”

McColley 653 F.Supp.2d 1155 (2009)

“More importantly, where a state permits individuals to openly carry firearms, the exercise of this right, without more, cannot justify an investigatory detention. Permitting such a justification would eviscerate Fourth Amendment protections for lawfully armed individuals in those states.” – Verbatim, US v Black

You don’t know what you think you know.

Taqiyya
Taqiyya allows Muslims to lie and/or conceal their true faith, feelings, thoughts, plans, and character, for the purpose of protecting themselves. It is fully based on the Koran and is agreed to and practiced by all major sects of Islam.

When it is possible to achieve an aim by lying, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible. Lying is obligatory if the goal is obligatory.

Tawriya
Tawriya allows Muslims to “creatively lie” by being purposely ambiguous about the real meaning of what they are saying.

Kitman
Kitman is a term that means Muslims are permitted to tell half-truths, or partial truths, while concealing the greater whole truth. Discussion of “jihad” as being only an “inner” or “spiritual” struggle is an example of Kitman, as technically it is true that jihad refers to a spiritual struggle, but conceals the very real physical struggle that is also encompassed by jihad.

Muruna
Muruna is perhaps the biggest deception practiced by Muslims, as it allows them to be “flexible” regarding the commands of their faith in order to properly blend in with the society around them. Muruna permits Muslims to shave their beards, wear Western clothing, listen to Western music, and even drink alcohol.

All of these deceptions go against specific commandments, as well as the overarching commandment against lying itself, that are found in the Koran. But they are allowed so long as their use contributes to a greater goal or serves a greater commandment within the Koran, like spreading Islam among the infidels.

There’s no reason to bother with any vetting process…

This is why the self-proclaimed non-religious just don’t fucking get it. The Koran also describes Muhammad being possessed by Satan… The Prince of Lies.

Islam is Satanic. This is just one example.

The non-religious see nothing wrong with that. But, they do see something wrong with murder in the name of promoting religion…

The mark of an intelligent man is his ability to entertain an idea without accepting the idea. I don’t ask you to become religious. I don’t ask you to believe as I do. I ask you to see the correlation and underlying issue without resorting to moral primitivism and oversimplification.

You may not see the air, and you can deny that it exists if you like. But, you cannot deny that when the wind blows, it bends the tree. To deny this is to invite your destruction.

Ugly Americans

RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood. (These are two things of which there is a plentiful supply. Government and corporations always have a difficult time appealing to people, and usually do so almost exclusively with economic arguments.)

RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone. (Organizations under attack wonder why radicals don’t address the “real” issues. This is why. They avoid things with which they have no knowledge.)

RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)

RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)

RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones. (Radical activists, in this sense, are no different that any other human being. We all avoid “un-fun” activities, and but we revel at and enjoy the ones that work and bring results.)

RULE 7: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news. (Even radical activists get bored. So to keep them excited and involved, organizers are constantly coming up with new tactics.)

RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)

RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist. (Perception is reality. Large organizations always prepare a worst-case scenario, something that may be furthest from the activists’ minds. The upshot is that the organization will expend enormous time and energy, creating in its own collective mind the direst of conclusions. The possibilities can easily poison the mind and result in demoralization.)

RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog. (Unions used this tactic. Peaceful [albeit loud] demonstrations during the heyday of unions in the early to mid-20th Century incurred management’s wrath, often in the form of violence that eventually brought public sympathy to their side.)

RULE 11: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem. (Old saw: If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. Activist organizations have an agenda, and their strategy is to hold a place at the table, to be given a forum to wield their power. So, they have to have a compromise solution.)

RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

There is absolutely no one in the USA that doesn’t do this to everyone they meet. Everyone is out to get everyone. Even in non-monetary ways. The simple ego trip of hurting someone else.

Stab them in the kidney, take their wallet, burn the money in front of them as they bleed out, just to make sure they know that their death is utterly meaningless.

There is no such thing as an American who this does not describe. If you don’t join in, you’ll be destroyed by it.

I refuse to be such an evil person. This is why I will not survive. This is why I do not belong. This is why I am not normal; and damn proud of it.

Banks were the first Cloud. It’s not a new concept.

For a long time, I’ve been in search of “the next money.” It’s an inevitable invention that will be forged in the pressure of government corruption and mismanagement of fiat money. But, what will it be?

The clueless Libertarians will tell you it’s Bitcoin. It’s not. Even Bitcoin’s inventor, who goes by the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto, told the world it was an experiment.

But, as is often done by millennials, and those attempting to hold on to their youth by imitating the younger generation, The Bitcoin Experiment was rushed into use by people who did not understand the experiment and cannot even perceive the experiment due to a lack of technical aptitude.

I’ll explain a problem I’m having with Bitcoin right now, which isn’t new and occurs quite a lot. I sent a payment for an invoice for services. I had to send it through shapeshift.io because I don’t use Bitcoin directly. I know it’s defects and hold my money in systems that are less messed up. The front end of that transaction worked fine, because it’s not Bitcoin. But, once it hit the Bitcoin network, it stalled. Can’t get block inclusion.

I’ll spare you the drama about blocksize politics and massive nerd egos.

These are only two of Bitcoin’s failings, and the two least problematic ones, at that!

It’s been 14 hours. I sent the money, but the person to whom I owe it, still hasn’t gotten it. Maybe never will… Will it boomerang? That’s the natural result, but since the origin, as far as the busted and old Bitcoin protocol is concerned, is shapeshift.io, I’ll never get it back.

This also plays into the double spend “it’s a feature not a bug” bullshit. But, again, I don’t want to get off track…

Now how does that apply to the headline? The first two sentences of this post?

Privacy. Humans are finally getting the first glimpse of what it’s like to be stripped of privacy now that the digital age has put so much more of our lives into The Cloud. Much more than just our money, as with the first usage of Banks. There are narcissists and attention whores that like it that way, but far more people who do not.

Most take this loss of the basic and essential human right to privacy as an inevitable and foregone conclusion based on “they” will never let us have our privacy. The excuse making, that we all need to give up our privacy so “government can do it’s job.” A job which no mortal can do, but I don’t want to get too far off track. I’ll keep it short and simply point out that so many worship government as an omnipotent god-like entity, that it’s hilarious that these same people claim to be atheists…

OK, no I won’t. Government is not a god. It offers to do the impossible, and then the fools get mad when “The politicians didn’t keep their promises!” No shit! They promised to shut off gravity so you could flap your arms and fly away. You gave up all of your rights and freedoms because they told you that such was needed in order to shut off gravity. Who’s the dumbass? The Politicians who said such ridiculous things? Or you, for actually believing it, and throwing away your rights in the hope that some mere mortal will break the natural laws of the universe just because you are that desperate in your refusal to grow up?

Now, add that degree of irresponsible immaturity to technology. The majority outright refuses to gain the basic technical aptitude needed to maintain their basic human right to privacy.

Now, look what just happened over at Coinbase. The Gubmint has issued a blanket demand for all records on all people who have used their service in the last 3 years. Explicitly saying that coinbase itself is not being “investigated” for fraud against these users. Which is the only possible justifiable reason for their demand. This is tantamount to the government demanding “Everyone who ever used a dollar in the last 3 years must now tell us everything they ever used that money for because we heard a rumor once that someone might have bought weed with a dollar.” Even by the government’s own standards, this demand is a blatant and illegal infringement against due process and what little is left of the basic human right to privacy. This degree of privacy violation requires just cause and a specific person. Probable cause and a warrant that meets strict due process precedent. The demand being made on coinbase couldn’t take a bigger shit on that. If they get away with it, privacy is dead. This tiny little fragment is all that’s left.

And, it’s not new. Government has been leaning on small entities demanding records without due process for decades now. “Give us what we want or we’ll audit you into bankruptcy” “Confess to the fabricated evidence of a crime you never committed, or we’ll bankrupt you in a fraudulent defense and make your entire family suffer.” It’s become Standard Operating Procedure. Corrupt judges have rubber stamping warrants “because gun” or “because weed” or “because terrorism” for decades now.

How can this be a representative government. Look at the way people on social media put themselves in a bubble of lies, where a twisted worldview can be maintained. Look at the Social Justice Warrior movement that has been breeding on college campuses for decades. Look at how it’s hurt industry. It’s a fucking joke that I can make money doing what I do. It’s only because so many are so artificially unable.

You can’t fight the encroachments of government on so many fronts when you aren’t even aware enough to know it’s happening. Huxley nailed it. Entertained to death. Idiocracy. But what Huxley missed, Orwell followed up. They were both right because they were both wrong. It isn’t one or the other. It’s both. The clueless idiots of Huxley’s vision DEMAND the authoritarian dystopia in Orwell’s. They can’t function without it! They’re helpless and stupid in the extreme. They don’t need propaganda, they tell lies to themselves to maintain their childish demented outlook and block or unfollow anyone who contradicts it. They do it to themselves! It’s not just being entertained to death as Huxley described, but the ability to exclude reality and demand that someone else come along with the power to make it all work. Something no mortal can do. But if you worship government and thing it has god-like powers, because you’re so stupid that you don’t realize that there are things in this universe which no mortal can alter… Cue moral relativism…

At least The Flying Spaghetti Monster has magical powers. Politicians are just people. Very, very bad people.

Politicians will always, always lead us down a path of empty promises that rid us of our freedoms. It’s what they do. The Fox and the Scorpion. Not necessarily because they’re evil, but that it’s easy to keep 51% of the population dumb enough to follow the path of impossible things. It’s easy to keep 51% in a pre-pubescent mindset where they’ll believe any damn thing. People with such underdeveloped intellects will believe anything, and tenaciously cling to their beautiful lies. Duh, why do you think government wants to control education? So they can assure that no matter how much money is thrown at education, the people stay stupid enough to wish for the impossible.

So, we who have brains find ourselves in the ultimate quandary. A perfect storm of centuries’ old design, and a fight being need fought by people who can’t even tell it’s there…

These people who gave up control of their own money, which isn’t even theirs or based on any real value measure, because they know themselves to be too clueless and irresponsible to handle it and keep it safe, that they put it in the hands of the very people most likely to use it as a weapon to force compliance.

Bitcoin couldn’t save it. It made promises it couldn’t keep. It plods on as those ignorant of it’s inadequate feature set don’t see the problem(s).

Even in the cryptosphere, they still don’t realize what’s wrong with it, won’t educate themselves well enough, and just keep waving the flag in hilarious ignorance.

Being smarter than that, I moved on to DASH. But, those people got a taste of fame and a spotlight for the first time in their lives and have been seduced by it. Along came a couple of Pied Pipers who know exactly how to manipulate the starts-in-their-eyes dev team… 30 pieces of silver and they betrayed themselves.

Then I found V.cash. Within just a few days of discovering it, and the direction it’s developer was going, he had some kind of emotional breakdown and abandoned the project…

Even if there were someone willing and able to be the tip of the spear, would this person know how? Would people who put their fake money in the oldest cloud ever, suddenly grow up and take responsibility for their precious even if “the new money” finally did come to life? I see phrases like “Grammar Nazi” and I wonder if the masses are so hopelessly lost in their own hubris and reality-inversion that they even care, or would be able if they suddenly woke up?

If I choose to be the head of that spear, would anyone know how to throw it? It would require the Idiocracy to stop being so damned lazy and stupid. To stop sealing themselves inside echo chambers and hammering themselves with lies and propaganda of their own invention… Do you bet the farm with those odds? When the very people who declare themselves the most aware are so easily seduced and led astray?

I know the path. I know exactly what needs to be done. It’s not vision or a divine gift. It’s simple common sense. But, in a social environment where common sense is not only absent, but abhorred, I guess it might look like a super power… But, if I am the only one to walk upon that path… Kinda pointless. Too afraid? Too stupid? Doesn’t matter. Failure to what needs doing, grow up and take responsibility, will lead to even more encroachment.

The degree of totalitarianism that will be needed to “get rid of cash” is so extreme, I find it hard to believe that even the most pathetic douche bags of all time would allow it. But as I’ve watched Social Justice Warriors twist every definition of every word to glorify their own demise, I’m left to wonder if, after all these years of having no faith in humanity, perhaps I still have too much…

I am so very grateful to my customers, even though they are often the source of why I feel this way and have come to this point. They have given me so much more than I ever expected, and for doing what I consider to be quite little under terrible circumstances. Should I take that gift and do this thing?

“Fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing.” – Optimus Prime.

Again? Is this why I’m so miserable? The last time I did something ridiculous against all odds and all recommendations, well, here I am. Talking about that very gift…

A few years ago I came to the conclusion that the reason the world has so much bad in it is not the crazy guy on the street corner who thinks he’s on a mission from God. It’s that we’re all on a mission from God, but the crazy guy on the street corner is the only one taking it seriously… Is this my mission? Is failing to do it the pain that is supposed to motivate me? Is this why I’m so damned miserable? Is this why, even though I spent this entire blog post outlining why it’s a hopeless waste of time, money, effort and life; I still feel mercilessly compelled?

I have this dream of buying a sailboat and never coming back. Human societies just aren’t fit to be lived in by respectable people… Am I being selfish? Every time I get close, I pull back… Is this why?

How arrogant is the True Believer? Am I locked in my own echo chamber, where I can’t believe that’s the truth because it’s crazy and arrogant to think you’re on a mission from God? But, what if, just maybe, it were true, and I failed to do it? Perhaps the reason I’m so miserable, is because it’s true, and I’m not doing it.

A person who loathes government and red tape more than anyone, going into a field that has more of both than any other field ever has or ever will?

It’s so arrogant and ridiculous it might just be true…

You won’t find such beautifully written satire on the left

You Should Read This.

Until that moment I hadn’t even realised that “alt-right” was what I was becoming; I just thought I was a more open-minded person for tolerating these views.

Te he!

Then, watch this…

I generally enjoy Sargon’s work, but this was a shining masterpiece. It’s a troll inside a troll inside a troll, and the original publishers are so hyped up on the extremism they don’t even realize they’ve been bit. And Sargon tears it apart anyways, just to make the point.

I am too damned smart for the world.

Echo chambers.

“The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.” – Ronald Reagan

Confirmation bias.

“It is hard to fill a cup that is already full.” – Moat

They’re not learning because they refuse to consider the possibility that they are wrong, and do not already know everything.

I commented on the buildup over the last decade of inverse flattery. Let me explain: If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and one can use like, dislike and unsubscribe to assure that he/she is surrounded only with flattery, what does disagreement become? It becomes the ultimate insult that “someone, out there, somewhere, dares not to be exactly like me!” How can this be!

It used to be hard to generate these extremists, but now they create themselves.

This is why I don’t use Facebook…

“Fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing.” – Optimus Prime

The Left has become a headless cult, and these programmed pseudo-people seek out the missing leader on YouTube. The Anita Sarkeesians. The Hillary Clintons. The leaders of the cult that built itself and doesn’t know that it’s a cult.

As We Watched the Election Map Until 4am…

My son and I mulled the notion that I’ve never been so concerned about an election in which the guy we were rooting for wasn’t a guy we actually liked. Again, the lesser of two evils.

He’s a douche bag and a slippery car salesman… I disagreed with little of what he had to say, I simply don’t trust him or believe he has any intentions of doing what he said.

I’d love to be wrong…

So, in a fucked up kinda way, I’m glad Trump beat Hillary. But, it would have endeared him to me far more effectively had he done so with a baseball bat.

Ozymandius Obscurum

Percy Shelley’s “Ozymandias”

I met a traveler from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:

And on the pedestal these words appear:
‘My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!’
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

Reminds me of the Capital Building…

“The biggest lesson of history is people don’t learn from history. And history shows us that even the people that know history, don’t learn from history.” – Jim Rogers.

Being the one who learns from history, I’m quite alone and un-liked.

The grass which grows tallest, gets cut.

Be the change you want to see in the world. But, be ready to pay the price…

I used to think that Earth had only two unlimited resources. Sunlight and Human Stupidity. I now realize there is a third; hate.

New Direction

I keep coming back to the same problem but, I can put a finer point on it now…

I started the silly solvent trap thing with the main interest being the restoration of American resourcefulness and ingenuity. Many other things happened which were far beyond my expectations and for which I am thankful.

But.

The bottom line is that the primary mission is a complete failure.

As I look out on the marketplace 5 years later, I see it as much worse. I see kits… The consumers demanded it, those who are perfectly happy to sell America down the river provide it.

The refusal to learn. Entitlement. (L)earn. If you haven’t learned it, you haven’t earned it. When the guv makes a law that takes away your providers, where will you get it? Whatever “it” may be. I provide a learning tool. Nobody wants that.

I could easily disrupt the current marketplace. I could sell kits, too… I could undercut everyone. I could get rich. But, I’d be fucking America, and I can’t do that. Those who wish to destroy America will have to do it without my help.

Perhaps every man has his price. I like to say I don’t. Maybe I do… But it isn’t monetary, and no one has yet managed to name it.

As the political events of the last 2 years have proven, not only do Americans hate the idea of learning, resourcefulness, ingenuity, etc… They’re getting worse and are damn proud of it. All crotch, no brains.

I have no place in such an environment. Everything I’ve done is a complete waste. Nobody wants to learn, they just want it all handed to them.

Pigs like to wallow in shit. I don’t. The direction America is going removes all alternatives to joining the swine in their shit hole. America no longer wants people like me, and is now doing it’s best to eliminate resourceful, productive people who would encourage others to acquire the same traits.

A look at my library of work. The Negative Zero Percent bullpup. Off grid energy designs. Air guns. None of this matters and will never make a difference. Most of it I never bothered to bring to market because I know it won’t make a damn bit of difference.

I’ve been teaching math to a herd of horny cats.

America has emptied itself out. There’s nothing here but crotch. The people are chemical nothings wrapped in skin better spent on anything else. There’s no life for me here. It dissolved around me as I tried to save it. But, it doesn’t want to be saved. Empty nothingness is exactly what America wants to be. It’s time for me to go.

I have no idea what my new direction will be, but it’s clear that my value is wasted here. Idiocracy became reality only a few short years after the movie was made.

Stupid People… Stupid People, EVERYWHERE!!!

I’m going to pull my hair out dealing with these salvage yard and freight people… I can’t believe people can be this dumb and survive… They can screw up anything!

Me: “It weighs 400 pounds. It’s on a pallet. You need a lift gate. Oh, since you asked; it’s a 16KWh Lithium Cobalt Battery Pack out of a Chevy Volt.”

Idiot: [shows up in a Dodge Sprinter] “But, you said it was a car battery. I didn’t see any reason to bring a box truck with a lift gate…”

BECAUSE IT WEIGHS 400 POUNDS! Even if it didn’t weigh 400 pounds, it wouldn’t fit!

Idiot: “…now I have to drive all the way back and get a different truck. We’re going to have to charge you for two trips.”

Why? Because you turn into a complete idiot every time you see a house? Better not go where the houses are, your brain will fall out? It’s my fault that you ignored my instructions and showed up in a completely inadequate vehicle? I need to be double charged because you wasted time and have to make a second trip, all of which could have been avoided if you just listened to what I said? I need to be double charged because you won’t listen to very simple instructions?

Then he wants to argue about loading docks…

Me: [while pointing at the sissy little Dodge Sprinter that he drove up in] “Please tell me how that’s going to access a loading dock.”

Idiot: [to his partner] “See, this is why we don’t do residential.”

Me: “This is not residential. This is stupid. Leave now and do not come back. If you send a bill, I will wipe my ass with it and set it on fire.”

…and this was the least stupid person I had to deal with in the last 2 days.

The next guy… This is the only way to do business with him. He has this form on his website. It’s a piece of paper that was scanned and imported into a .PDF. Think about all that for a second. I am required to print it out, write down all my information by hand, all the credit card info, then fax it over to him. Who the hell still has a fax machine? Oh, it’s ok, he advises me that I can email it, too. Not that I would ever be that stupid… At this point I’m just trying not to laugh, making a poor effort to hide the you-can-tell-I’m-smiling voice, but my morbid curiosity gets the best of me.

I ask; “What’s your email address?” He replies: “Dubyah dubyah dubyah…”

I hung up.

Exactly how drunk do you have to be for this to seem like a good idea? Good thing I’m not trying to buy a salvaged 8-track deck… Or am I? Lols, parts of a Nissan Leaf… From the Stone Age?

And just when I think that my face cannot endure any more facepalming…

The freight guys… Wilson. These guys are totally cool! I never heard a word from them until I heard a semi idling in my driveway, less than 72 hours after the shipment was picked up on the other side of the country, and then the phone rang. He cranks a 3-point turn, backs up to my carport, wham, bam, thank-ya-ma’am, it’s unloaded, BoL signed, all done! I don’t think he was here 4 minutes. This is how it’s done! Not a single facepalm!

Oh, I forgot to mention. Wilson was delivering one of two items that I bought from the same, eh, shall we call them “people?” Items that could have been put on the same pallet and shipped in a single shipment. But, no… Two separate shipments. Two separate freight companies. Wilson only delivered one of them. The other one… Lets just say I wish Wilson had delivered that one, too. So, 11 days later, with much crying and whining from the local terminal about trees being scary, not-Wilson left it sitting in the dirt, halfway up my driveway… Do you know how much a 4ET50 dual-permanent-magnet-three-phase-induction-motor-with-multi-engagement-planetary-gear posing as a transmission weighs? A lot more than you want to drag a quarter of a mile through the dirt…

If Human Beings are separated from the rest of the animals by Higher Intellect, are those who dispose of this Higher Intellect, and no longer possessed of the separation it provides, still Human Beings?

Missing/busted radiator.
Missing/busted transmission.

There is no reason for me to pay for working items in the previous list because I’m just going to pull them out and throw them away. It is not a perk if your item includes them. If you contact me and say “it runs and drives great,” I very specifically do not want your vehicle.

Rolling chassis. Drive shafts present, but not connected. Steering works well. Suspension intact. Axles, diffs, intact.

Tires; round-ish.
