Everybody down! This is a high-jacking!

Really, it is...

 

I just finished listening to a fascinating podcast on 'Revisionist History' by Malcolm Gladwell (only 5 episodes that starts with "The Bomber Mafia") about how napalm came to be. 

It chronicles AF General Curtis LeMay who wanted to burn Japan or any enemy to the ground to make them surrender quickly. He did a pretty good job with Japan! The 2 big booms in Japan were just the final blows in a long string of burning death we rained down on Japan and later Korea! 

Eventually, burning everything to the ground became immoral!

Killing forests with Agent Orange, no so much...

LeMay was the aerial counterpart to Patton - incredibly effective but a totally dangerous Dog of War.

The kind of person that ideally you could keep in a glass case with a sign "In Case of War, Break Glass"

Threat to kill wild boar that stole nude bather's laptop prompts outcry

 

I went to see a Bruce Springsteen concert in 2016 at the Olympic stadium in Berlin, very close to the area where the boar incident above happened.  Leaving the show, we were driving on a small back road to avoid traffic and a couple of large boars appeared out of the trees and proceeded to cross the road.  Several more adult boars crossed and then about 6 or 8 little ones, followed by a few more adult boars.

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — A live air-to-air missile discovered at a small central Florida airport has been secured in a munition storage facility at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa.

The unarmed French S-530 air-to-air missile was found at Lakeland Linder International Airport on Friday.

“It is secured and safe and they are just waiting on when and where they are going to dispose of the missile. Those details are yet to be solidified,”

A new survey has yielded “shocking and saddening” results, showing millennials and Gen Z have a “worrying lack of basic Holocaust knowledge,” according to the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference).

Through the survey, the Claims Conference calculated Holocaust “knowledge scores” using the percentage of millennials and Gen Z adults who met all three criteria: they have definitively heard about the Holocaust, the can name at least one concentration camp, death camp, or ghetto, and they know that 6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust.

Sixty-three percent of survey respondents did not know 6 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust, Claims Conference says.

In Florida, 61% of those surveyed didn’t know 6 million died, and 31% believed it was 2 million or less.

Wisconsin, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Maine, Kansas, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Idaho, Iowa and Montana had the highest Holocaust knowledge scores, while Alaska, Delaware, Maryland, New York, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Florida, Mississippi, and Arkansas had the lowest.

Why are you surprised Jules?? Our country is in a race to the bottom, in more ways than one.  If it was practical to GTFO, we would, but with daughters in S. Carolina and rental properties to deal with, it's not possible.  I could see Canada in the summer and Europe for the winter in our future, otherwise.....

Not so much surprised as shocked actually seeing the numbers.  This was on the local news last night so a lot of locals saw this.  It struck me as the local news calling out the the viewers for their lack knowledge of an important historical fact.

I also wondered if the reason for this being covered was to hope people would take a look at how quickly Germany changed under Hitler and make the connection to today.  Thouch I realize that's a lot of wishful thinking.

I've often looked at the work ethic of immigrants and then at the work ethic of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th generation offspring.  That original worth ethic seems to slack off over the generations to the point later generations seem more prone to thinking in terms of having some sort of entitlement having been born here.  No need to work so hard.

My wife and I are both children of immigrants who inherited their work ethic. Our kids, despite our best efforts, have not. In grappling with this fact, I've sort of come to realize that it's a feature, not a bug. Or maybe both.

Our parents came here looking for opportunity and a better life and knew they'd have to bust ass to get it. However, they also hoped their kids and grandkids and later generations would be able to build on what they've done to have it easier.

My teenage son may very well become a musician, which would be a recipe for financial insecurity if he didn't have the resources he'll likely inherit from me, assuming no financial catastrophies in the mean time.

His career choice will enrich the county's culture, where mine added incrementally to our country's scientific strength, but both are important.

The key thing in my mind is that the country needs to keep bringing in immigrants. Those new generations are almost by definition the most motivated, hard working people in the world. They are our secret weapon for global leadership.

There are certain times in history that should not be forgotten.  I've read a number of books about Germany in the 1930s and with each book I see the similarities to what's happening here.  In order to protect our democracy, we have to know about those times in history that will help us identify when our democracy is under attack.

Possible but at least here in Australia, not legal so I doubt it'd happen. Already other ways to DNA profile a huge percentage of the population and that's never happened either.

That caused sustained winds in the high teens with gusts up close to 30 knots here yesterday, causing me to go sailing. It was exciting!

When I returned, the extremely low water had the really slick parts of the boat ramp out of water and I wound up crawling around on hands and knees to drag my boat onto concrete so it wouldn't blow away while I went to get the car.

Pics are not worth it. Take a couple of feet or so to get to the streets.  While sea level is rising and the land in this part of the country is slowly subsiding, out tidal variations above and below predictions is more related to the shallow bowl effect of sustained winds pushing water up and down and across the bay. Average depth of the Chesapeake is about 21’ with 25% of the surface less than 6 feet.

On the western side of the middle Bay, from Tangier in the South to Poplar Island on the North, islands turn to islets and then to marshes and shoals as erosion, storms and higher water levels, from subsidence and rising sea levels take their toll. We are on the alluvial plain, grown in mud and clay carved out by glaciers and built of sediments and runoff. No rock to lend a veneer of permanence. When sea levels were a few hundred feet higher, we were the continental shelf to the Rocky piedmont shore. We find Megaladon shark’s teeth and whale fossils in the cliffs from those days along present day shoreline. When they were 50-100 feet lower, we were the Susquehanna River valley.  

Probably best to say that man made climate change is but one of the factors remapping the shoreline.

Governor Desantis came to the rescue of students who are being expelled for holding parties in violation of university policies.  He is creating a college "bill of rights."

"I think it's dramatically draconian that a student could get expelled for going to a party.  That's what college kids do," Desantis said.

Desantis is also moving to block any attempts to closing restaurants since there's little evidence doing so slows the spread of COVID.

As infection numbers begin to rise again, and as deaths continue to mount, the Florida governor has opened the entire state up, back to pre-COVID days.

This guy is so focused on pleasing Trump he's willing to allow the virus to spread freely because, to Trump, an open economy will save his reelection.  Desantis doesn't understand things like this will almost guarantee COVID will be renamed the Trump Virus.

Trump has earned the right to be memorialized for his part in this pandemic.  And I support any efforts to that end.

Being remembered in perpetuity as the worst POTUS ever not good enough for you?

No, because he'll just brush that off as fake news.  I think everyone calling his China virus the Trump virus would really get under his skin.

Darwin is really putting in a lot of O/T in the States these days.

The election cycle does bring out the wierdos on both political sides.

Florida... being Florida, does provide the world with limitless entertainment.

You should move there @SloopJonB!  BC will be cold and wet soon.  I will put in a good word for you at the Peace Arch crossing.

Now now... I don't want to hear any of that talk about "never leaving Canada"  and   "Florida?  Are you kidding me" nonsense.

Start packing.   I will keep your cars and boats in good order.
