Wolf Bytes

I wanted to do this for a while, but kept forgetting or putting it off. No more.

This is a collection of small but powerful ideas – maybe the source of future posts – maybe not.

Some are “waking-up realizations”. Others are “shower ideas”. Still others are “hold that thought” moments where I feel a great post coming, but can’t do it right now.

Others may simply have other purposes. But they’re all GOOD purposes.

Even the howlers!

Even the howlers!

The point is, they are HERE, in a handy collection, listed in the sidebar.

SO – enjoy some tasty wolf bytes, starting not with the FIRST, but with the first that motivated me to do something about them. I will try to recover the earlier ones and add them later.

They’re not exactly poetic, and a bit more like tweet philosophy, but they are sufficiently important that they merit NOT being on Twitter, subject to FAKE NORMAL.

They may actually appear meaningless, misleading, wrong or insane at the moment.

That is the part that makes WOLF smile. Figure it out. And ENJOY!

The DOWNSTREAM LOGIC of a WOLF BYTE is the BEST PART.

Once I realized that (1) debunking bias is as much a problem as confirmation bias, and (2) that only a working fusion of SKEPTICISM and PROOF-BUILDING creates actual advancement, then (3) it became clear that those who only see confirmation bias enable a WAGON-CIRCLING AGENDA.

  1. What Is a Planet?
    By Elizabeth Howell April 07, 2018
    https://www.space.com/25986-planet-definition.html

    . . . The International Astronomical Union defined a planet as an object that:

    * orbits the sun
    * has sufficient mass to be round, or nearly round
    * is not a satellite (moon) of another object
    * has removed debris and small objects from the area around its orbit

    The IAU also created a newer classification, “dwarf planet,” which is an object that meets planetary criteria except that it has not cleared debris from its orbital neighborhood. This definition meant that Pluto — considered a planet at the time — was demoted and reclassified as a dwarf planet.

    But not all scientists agree with this classification, particularly after the New Horizons spacecraft flew by Pluto in 2015. The spacecraft revealed a complex world full of geological change. This included mountains reaching as high as 11,000 feet (3,500 meters), a heart-shaped region nicknamed Tombaugh Regio that contains methane ice and other substance, and weird ice-ridged terrain that looks like snakeskin, among many other features Since then, members of the New Horizons team have made scientific presentations arguing Pluto is indeed a planet. The new scientific findings continue to amaze the public, Alan Stern said in 2018.

  3. As a child I remembered the planets by the phrase ‘ MoVE MY(J) SUN’ and you would just remember Pluto. This was when it was considered a planet yet was tagged on the end and not in the phrase.

    I alway thought the phrase strange because how or why would you move my sun? If you did what kind of chaos would ensue? But then again it’s always moving and we are moving right along with it.

    planetary exclusion…not sure what that means. Exclusion from our planet or excluding a planet (Pluto)?
    What have we, by choice, excluded from the planet?
    A free thinking world wouldn’t exclude anything. It would study, learn, discuss, accept, adapt and sometimes control (Ha! The controlling bit is where things can get a bit awry, controlling the language is what you’re getting at?)

    Anyway, I gave it a go 🥴 have fun. It’s early and my little brain just went stellar ⭐️

      2. One trick I learned from a bibliophile was to make your own index writing in the back cover of the book. This was especially important for certain books where you couldn’t trust the author/editor to include a complete and accurate table of contents or index – cultic books in particular were notorious for hiding critical information in other chapters or inverting the names of chapters to disguise their meaning.

        I mostly used tape flags and post-it notes for that purpose but his method was a lot more thorough than mine.

          2. Wolfie, when I got a new computer operated GC with a manual 2 inches thick I used:

            Avery Self Adhesive Index Tabs with Printable Inserts.

            To make it easy to find the sections I wanted to re-read as I tried to get the beast up and running.

            It saved me a HECK of a lot of time and agravation! — Even if the manual ended up looking like a porcupine.

          1. That’s a good point too.

            But that reminds me of another good point… you have to be on the lookout for shenanigans

            On physical books: Check which edition, and which impression of the book you have. People will sneak in changes even between impressions.

            A recent example was the book “The Shack” where the author snuck in changes to some controversial parts of the book. Because the book was “fiction” it wasn’t held to a high standard.

            Electronic books almost always have differences from the print version. This is most obvious if there are a lot of charts and diagrams, because they don’t come through correctly.

            But some people like to cut certain sections of text in the electronic version.

            Also sections of text can be explicitly blocked from searching and indexing in some ebook formats and in PDF as well. DRM is really some evil stuff. I had a PDF edition of a phony academic journal and the publisher who wasn’t on the up and up put PDF code in to block copy and paste b/c they wanted to make it harder for people to point out the baloney they were putting out.

            Key points can also be made in sidebars and other places – and putting the text in an image file prevents these from being indexed. If you see a definitions table in an image format, that’s a big red flag, especially if the definitions are highly questionable, like in some of the critical race / racialist propaganda. They don’t want people stumbling on to their incendiary definitions – that’s part of their game to control the language.

            Lots of FAKE publishing crap to go with FAKE science.

            So it really depends on the fidelity (faithfulness) of the electronic copy…

            Books are like having a conversation with the author. (Ahh, how romantic!) Just remember that many authors are pathological liars.

              But even if what you are looking for is in the electronic version, and searchable, you still have to beware of shenanigans of 🤡 tracking your search.

              Bezos, or Bozos, or any of that lot. And if you ever hear them say they aren’t doing it, you have to be willing to call 🤥 on them. Because it is their nature to behave like 💩.

    The Cameron Ortis arrest in Canada appears to be linked to the arrest of a senior detective/cop in Switzerland.

    Both arrests are now being reported as linked to Magnitsky & Russian money laundering.

    Speculation at this point, but Canada was a conduit through which dirty Russian money was laundered to the Clinton Foundation in 2015, in Uranium One. Was Ortis involved?

    ‘Andy’ McCabe to be indicted.

    But of course. He’s at the epicenter of the conspiracy to rig the election and also take down a POTUS.

    A nastier piece of work would be difficult to find.

    Somehow I doubt the charges will just be for ‘lying to the FBI’. I predict people will be shocked at the indictment and the counts within it. If there’s any justice, one should be seditious conspiracy.

    If anyone remains in doubt about how serious this situation is and what is coming down the line for SOBs like McCabe, recall A G Barr’s words from May 30:

    You don’t think that they have committed treason?” Barr was asked.

    “Not as a legal matter,” he replied. “Sometimes people can convince themselves that what they’re doing is in the higher interest and better good. They don’t realize that what they’re doing is really antithetical to the democratic system that we have.’

    A G Barr has known EXACTLY what’s gone down since at least May, some 5 MONTHS ago.

    Since then, he’s learned more.

    Technically he’s right on the treason charge. Legally you most likely need a state of war and even if you didn’t it’s a very high bar to prove.

    I’m not ruling treason out, but will be disappointed if there’s no seditious conspiracy charge in the indictment.

    If it’s just a perjury charge, to me it means McCabe has sung like a canary. Which wouldn’t surprise me one bit.

  9. Speaking of random ideas, it would be interesting to note how people read threads. I, myself, like to catch them when they have about 40-60 comments, and I’ll open a new tab to contain them at that stage…..then might come back and actually read them (and the comments) when I have time. If they’re going nowhere at that stage, I can think, “ok, I’ve done that thread” and close it — without necessarily reading the 200 comments they have by the time I actually read ’em.

    If those first 40-60 comments inspire me to comment, I’ll revisit the thread but search my nic to see how well I’ve contributed, and maybe spot-check other comments. If a thread is really lively, I’ll re-read the entire thread (including the 40-60 I’ve already seen) and see where things are going.

    I have a ton of things going on, some of which are outdoors and hot, so I’ll frequently come in for 15 minutes after I get something done in order to cool down and check my to-do list. At such times, I don’t really have time to absorb and think about things, so I’ll just try to look at headlines and freeze threads if they have “ripened” sufficiently.

    I tend to “riffle through” my “key sites” to see if I should capture something before it refreshes off the page. These include Instapundit, HotAir, Drudge, PJMedia, FoxNews, FoxBusiness, The Market-Ticker, ZeroHedge, the OT, and here. I also tend to have about 200 tabs open at a time, currently in nine windows. Some are musical accompaniment, some are research based on something I was interested in, some are items of great meaning, some are funny memes, and some are merely brain farts.

Obama and his immediate backers are nowhere NEAR the top of the people who were really trying to take down America. The Wictorians will have to “get above the chessboard” to see what’s really going on. It is not safe there – AT ALL. This is where the fights in the NSC are originating, IMO. Again, Corso for the win on that one. This is an OLD fight in NSC – and long before NSC.

      The Wictorians will have to be very careful not to get burned on disinformation, and also, because things are going to get NASTY, and they have to ACCEPT BAD STUFF ABOUT ALLIES and THEN FORGIVE. Inability to do that does not allow one to attain higher visibility on the situation.

    When Israel attacked in 2006, ALL LEBANESE UNITED BEHIND HEZBOLLAH.
