Our Half-Millionth Comment: Beautiful!

I intentionally made sure that nobody was paying attention to our approaching half-millionth (500,000) comment, because I really did not want there to be conscious gaming of it. I wanted it to be as RANDOM as possible. I wanted GOD to decide the post - not us. Only days later, when I was sure that … Continue reading Our Half-Millionth Comment: Beautiful!


It has come to my attention that there is significant dissatisfaction with the way that the traditional Open Thread has bifurcated into two threads. COVID and NON-COVID - the latter losing a lot of steam. And then, when I threw in a "topical" COVID thread today, which I think just pushed things over the edge, … Continue reading SITE REORG.

Threats of Personal Violence, Even Joking, Will Not Be Tolerated On Either Site

Several Announcements Will Be Made In This Post Announcement 1: Due to comments public and private, which have escalated to levels which could theoretically constitute evidence in criminal and civil trials, I have been forced to suspend posting by two individuals.

On Expectations of Civility

I will try to keep this brief. I have been serving two masters on this one site, and that simply doesn't work.

A Deplorable Abroad, Wherein Keln's Meme Takes on a Profound Second Meaning I must begin by admitting - to a limited extent - where I was during my recent absence.

Quarter Millionth (Moon Distance) Post

The Moon's distance from Earth varies, but it it generally WITHIN a quarter of a million miles. Here is the "technical stuff" behind "quarter million". And one of the best pictorial demonstrations I have yet seen, of why "super moon" is actually a thing. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c8/Lunar_perigee_apogee.png Lunar distance (LD or {\textstyle \Delta _{\oplus L}}), also called Earth–Moon distance, Earth–Moon characteristic distance, … Continue reading Quarter Millionth (Moon Distance) Post

Grey Swan Event Flock – Why Nothing Can Stop What’s Coming

There is a guy on Hillary's side, who saw Trump coming - like a sky filled with bombers - but nobody listened. He published his theory of the "danger" of a Trump victory on May 26, 2016. https://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/26/opinion/campaign-stops/the-fears-trump-needs.html https://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/26/opinion/campaign-stops/the-fears-trump-needs.html While the author, Ross Douthat, didn't exactly realize what Trump was up to, nor the fact … Continue reading Grey Swan Event Flock – Why Nothing Can Stop What’s Coming
