Coping: Countdown to Antigravity?

With a growing pile of test equipment in my home office, we’re coming down to a week until we should be able to run some initial experiments in pursuit of anti-gravity and time-twisting. This morning, a couple of  public notes, though there was been a lot more over on the Peoplenomics side of things. The first thing I want to mention is Robert Nelson’s fine work over at www.rexresearch.com. (Continues below)   Robert and I go back many years.  He’s been collecting gems of ancient knowledge since about 1982 and is … Continue reading

Sports? Vote With Your Wallet!

A revolution over sports? This matter of kneeling – instead of standing – at sports events could result in a serious economic downturn, whether people realize it, or not. The size of the American Sports Machine is immense.  What is a rational approach?  Voting with your wallet seems to make sense. (Continues below)   There are lots of ways to cast a vote.  Let’s tear into the sports business model a bit. First, there are ticket sales.  If you believe that sporting events are where we go (like church, but … Continue reading

Coping: With Tribulation Weekend

Yeah, I know:  No war with the NORK’s yet, no trumpets sounding from on-high.  And no, none of our friends are missing, either. Still, for a Tribulation, I’m pretty things are bound to get worse.  Just give it a little more time.  You can’t shove 7-billion onto a rock designed for 250-500 million and not have a little shoving and cutting in line, and so forth.  Toss in nuclear warheads, and it’s clear what the outcome will be, just not when. Saturday, though, started off as a dead-ringer for the … Continue reading

Approaching a Break-through?

What better time to look at what’s been going on in the back room of Old Man Labs here at the ranch? This morning, we lift just one corner of the veil of secrecy that I’ve thrown over my efforts to help hack space-time.  Dimensions Next Door.Compared to what’s at stake? The weekly stock charts (while very profitable) pale in comparison in terms of intellectual weight.  I think you’ll agree once you read the latest on our project and why we’re looking for 50-pound bags of rock salt… More for … Continue reading

Ugly “Climate Change” Crap

Reader Note:  Due to a CenturyLink outage, we are on backup/satellite access this morning.  The [alleged] phone company says service should be back up at 9 AM.  But you can trust that as much as you can trust Congress.  But, we’d like to be surprised, for a change (on both counts). “So take a later, Maria…” They’re going, going…well, almost.  As of this morning, hurricane Jose is down to a post-tropical cyclone and weekend weather in the Northeast should be mostly sunny and mild. And, in the Caribbean, Maria is … Continue reading

Coping: Fall’s When to Vacation!

Yep…the “little darlings” are back in the [brain] washing stations learning how to be social just-us warriors.  And that means they are off the streets and campgrounds are quiet again.  Yes sir! I mentioned last week that my buddy Gaye (SurvivalWooman) and her hubby (SurvivalHubby) (who looks a tad like Hulk Hogan, come to think of it) had gone out and bought one of those fancy “tear-drop” trailers to be pulled around by their Subaru. This morning, she graces us with how the “first time out” went… (Continues below)   … Continue reading

Fed Stands Pat; Redeeming Mugabe

No surprise to the Fed decision Wednesday. Why do anything when nothing will work? So, as we figured, they didn’t do anything other than yammer about inflation target this, expectations that.  The usual stuff. Blah, blah, blah. What matters, though, is how much money is being made up.  Modern Monetary Theory – which I call the Robert Mugabe school of economics – holds that if you print just the right amount TOO MUCH money, things will work out well.  Further consideration of Mugabe’s approach is warranted as it may yield … Continue reading
