Are you smarter than a 70 year old ?

Jeff (the other one) March 30, 2024 - 9:01 AM - 9:01 AM

Missed 4 (Lone Ranger, Alka Seltzer, LS, and Red Skelton-these are questions, not answers, no spoiler here).

Roz March 30, 2024 - 12:05 PM - 12:05 PM

Missed 7, … 🙁

Dr. Jellyfinger April 1, 2024 - 2:23 PM - 2:23 PM

I only missed 2 ….. now I really feel old.

nytemuvr April 1, 2024 - 5:39 AM - 5:39 AM

@ORIGINAL G…. I’m 70 and didn’t miss any. I’m not sure but visiting the Smithsonian back in ’74 I kinda remember seeing the Lone Ranger mask and silver bullet. At the time I was just beginning to make my own ammo to kill sheets of paper at the gun range. I did cast a silver bullet from a half dollar in .44 caliber for a S&W 29 that I target shot every week or two. At that time I could load a full power .44 Magnum for a penny a piece, now store cost for one is over a dollar a round. I made the silver bullet in a .44 Special case just for the novelty of it. It turned out pretty cool and I was safe if a vampire was around. Somewhere through the years that silver bullet disappeared, wish I had it back.

Dr. Jellyfinger April 1, 2024 - 2:28 PM - 2:28 PM

Silver bullets only work on Werewolves.
For a Vampire you’d need a wooden bullet and that would probably get jammed in your barrel and blow it up… use a crossbow and wooden bolts instead.

Dr. Jellyfinger March 29, 2024 - 9:16 PM - 9:16 PM

It’s 9:16 and no comments yet?

Captain Bebops March 30, 2024 - 10:22 AM - 10:22 AM

Probably because they only published the Whatever at 9:01. I check activity at a little before 9 and noticed there was no Whatever yet but Politics were up.

Dr. Jellyfinger March 29, 2024 - 9:20 PM - 9:20 PM

Testing… testing…. 1-2-3-4
Is this thing on?
I guess everyone was watching the Giants game…. we won!

Book reports: Third From The Sun, Richard Matheson, various dates 1950 through 1953. Collection of 13 short stories, some only 3 pages. In spite of the implied title of the book there is only one that would count as Science Fiction. Most of these read more like mini horror stories. Not my cup of tea.

Nova, Samuel R. Delaney, 1968. A supposed interstellar adventure and it is that more or less. Almost 2 parallel stories. Main one is trying to go through the center an actual (small) nova in order to collect an excessively rare isotope that can only be measured in micro milligrams. Running through that is a odd seeming Hatfield/McCoy revenge story. There is a secondary story of a crewman who, for about 20 years, is trying to write a novel, taking tons of notes, trying to find a focus theme and subject. Better than Third From The Sun but tends to be confusing at times.

Has anyone else been non-renewed by their homeowners insurance? We’re 94517 ZIP Code and being told we’re “in a zone” of high wildfire risk. Tried several brokers, several online sites, several companies directly all to no avail. Sounds like we’re going to be forced to the California FAIR plan (insurance of last resort).

Well Folks March 31, 2024 - 9:55 AM - 9:55 AM

It’s happening everywhere. My cousin in Renton WA had his homeowners double because of fire zone BS. There are no forests in Renton or close to Renton. Friends in Bay Point had AAA cancel on them after 37 years. They have never made a claim. A lot of people that live on the westside of Carson City had their insurance canceled last year due to fire zone.
Insurance companies like the oil companies are legalized rips offs of the people

Appropriately Pessimistic March 31, 2024 - 3:46 PM - 3:46 PM

Thanks, Well. Frustrating for sure as we similarly have never made a claim. Not sure where this is all headed but I’m sure it’s not the best place.

Dorothy March 31, 2024 - 7:53 PM - 7:53 PM

I heard that if you no longer have a mortgage or any lien on your home that you are not required to carry homeowners insurance. I am considering cancelling mine because the bill came in and it is almost as much as my deductible. I have never made a claim because anything I have had done was under that amount. There is nothing in my area to give them cause to raise it so much.

MoJo March 30, 2024 - 9:35 AM - 9:35 AM

Anyone else think there’s some type a sabotage taking place at SFO with all the United flights having various issues? Missing panels, engine and hydraulic problems, wheels falling off etc. Maybe it’s just poor maintenance but maybe it’s something far more sinister. Hope somebody is investigating all the employees at SFO. On a brighter note, happy Easter weekend.

Tim March 30, 2024 - 9:49 AM - 9:49 AM

Interesting in this heathenistic state that there’s not one mention of Good Friday nor the Easter weekend in the local papers. So very sad!!!

Sad to see Perk’s Coffee in Lafayette has closed. The owners and staff were all really nice people and they served a great Latte.

The California Vehicle Code requires that all passenger vehicles registered in this state display license plates on both the front and the rear of each vehicle. It is stunning to me how many vehicles only have a rear license plate. And of those, the vast majority are higher-end (i.e. luxury) cars. My observation is that in our area, Tesla has the highest percentage of vehicles with no front plates. But there are plenty of BMW and Mercedes that also don’t have them. What is it? Entitlement? Materialistic people who don’t want the front end of their precious car marred by a license plate?

Atticus Thraxx March 31, 2024 - 6:40 PM - 6:40 PM

Because I don’t want to and I won’t have the ‘State’ dictate to me how to disfigure my vehicle for their convenience. They know who the hell I am. Ought to considering the taxes I’ve paid.

Concord Guy April 2, 2024 - 8:44 AM - 8:44 AM

Bless your heart.

Have you notice something about paper plates? When I see them I have started getting close enough to read the ending date. Of all the cars that have paper plates I’ve seen 3 that have expiration dates in 2024 or 2025. The oldest I’ve seen so far goes back to 2007. Well, considering how many regular expired plates I’ve seen I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.

Cyn March 31, 2024 - 8:09 PM - 8:09 PM

@Concord Guy
It’s the same with tinted windows……in some cases, drivers cannot be identified, which is illegal.

nytemuvr April 2, 2024 - 2:45 AM - 2:45 AM

@CONCORD GUY…You sure are picky….I don’t run a front plate as it blocks off a good portion of my radiator, I need all the cooling I can get in hot weather in stop and go traffic.

Essentially I asked ChatGPT4 if the past is absolutely determined by the present, at the quantum scale.
Question: At the quantum level, is the past “fixed”?
As apparently this wasn’t a yes or no question :
At the quantum level, the nature of time and its relationship with the past is a fascinating topic that has intrigued physicists for decades. Let’s delve into this intriguing debate:
Block Universe Hypothesis: According to our best theories of physics, the universe can be envisioned as a fixed block where time only appears to pass. This concept is often referred to as the “block universe.” In this view, the entire history of the cosmos exists simultaneously, and the distinction between past, present, and future is considered an illusion1.
Time-Symmetric Theories: The foundations of modern physics, including Einstein’s general theory of relativity and the Standard Model of particle physics, are time-symmetric. This means that the underlying physical laws remain unchanged regardless of whether time flows forward or backward. These theories do not explicitly define a special moment called “now” on a cosmic scale1.
Block Universe Advocates: Some physicists accept the block universe model, emphasizing that their task is to describe how the universe appears from the perspective of individual observers. They argue that to understand the distinction between past, present, and future, one must consider how an observer perceives time within this static space-time block1.
Challengers to the Block Universe: However, not everyone agrees. Some physicists and philosophers reject the idea of a fixed block universe. They contend that the passage of time is physical and not illusory. For them, the future is not predetermined, and the universe is not static. Avshalom Elitzur, a physicist and philosopher, boldly states, “The future does not exist. It does not! Ontologically, it’s not there” 1.
Recent Developments: Recent research has further complicated this debate. Physicists have been reevaluating quantum mechanics and its implications for time. For instance, the concept of unitarity (which ensures that probabilities sum to 1) clashes with the expanding universe. While unitarity demands symmetry between past and future at the quantum level, the universe’s expansion creates a stark difference between the two. Researchers are exploring ways to reconcile these conflicting aspects2.
In summary, the question of whether the past is fixed at the quantum level remains open. While some embrace the block universe, others seek a deeper understanding of why time appears to flow and whether it truly does so. The quest to unravel the mysteries of time continues to captivate scientists and philosophers alike.
Happy Easter!

Time is a spherical constant inside a mobius vortex.

Came across this on another website, anti tailgate device for your truck.
From an estate or garage sale or flea market buy an old worn out pipe wrench.
A 24 inch is about right size.
Lay it down on back bumper toward rear edge at a slight angle then weld it to bumper.
Few people will tailgate if a pipe wrench is about to fall off your bumper.

Parents show this article to your high school age kids.
‘Gen-Z is shunning college to take up traditional trades like welding and plumbing they say is far more satisfying and which doesn’t incur huge student debt’
Two year programs.
Was industrial electrician in a Union and made as much as immediate supervisor who had college degree in electrical engineering, who had huge student debt.

The world is certainly in need of people who know how to do more than type on a keyboard, and craftsmen are in short supply.
Aside from career considerations, visit someone who makes a living tig welding or using a mill and a lathe, and you will see a home full of innovation and quality workmanship.

OH MY GOD!!!!!….There’s been a 4.8 earthquake in New York….panic in the Big Apple!!!!
