I'm an artist, an educator, Pastafarian and I write. I also will gamble on just about anything. And I like unusual juxtaposition, but I love my wife...and beer. This blog is observations from a funny old man who gets pissed off every once in a while. Oh, and I mispell alot.

One Of My Very Own…

The man who saved the world

50 years ago, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, second-in-command Vasilli Arkhipov of the Soviet submarine B-59 refused to agree with his Captain's order to launch nuclear torpedos against US warships and setting off what might well have been a terminal superpower nuclear war. 
Or so I was told.

Read an article that had several points of interest.

Martial law usually occurs during a period of war or civil unrest, when the military is appointed to “restore order” and enforce civil and criminal law. During martial law, civil liberties like the 1st and 2nd amendment go out the window. You can be searched without a warrant and have no right to remain silent when questioned. You may be removed from your home and family…all the while being told it’s for your own good.
Put simply–martial law means the constitution is suspended in favor of totalitarian, military rule. Many argue that we’re already under some form of martial law in the United States. It’s easy to see why. With the ridiculous TSA screenings at the airport and with the police force using tear gas and driving military vehicles, it sometimes seems like martial law is already our reality. But this is only the beginning…

Was listening to an informative documentary on why humans have learned to fear the dark. Most of it was obvious, but then they came up with this jewel: 24% of house fires occur between midnight and 6 am. Do the math on that.

I will admit that I was not in favor of calling gay unions 'marriage' because of the definition. But then I thought, why not change the definition? We do it all the time.

Watched "When Day Breaks" and I like it.

 But it, like most movies, used graffiti to show that an area is a slum.
I found that telling.

Any time that any facility is at capacity, that tells you it is time to raise the price.

Business card case

In the lab, 100 mealworms ate between 34 and 39 milligrams of Styrofoam – about the weight of a small pill  – per day. The worms converted about half of the Styrofoam into carbon dioxide, as they would with any food source. Within 24 hours, they excreted the bulk of the remaining plastic as biodegraded fragments that look similar to tiny rabbit droppings. Mealworms fed a steady diet of Styrofoam were as healthy as those eating a normal diet, Their waste appeared to be safe to use as soil for crops.


( It "appeared" to be safe? How hard would it be to make sure? )

I found number ER14 on Highway 202 near the Quabbin overlook on October 20, 2015. What was the key for ? Why two wooden plugs ?
And thanks for the dollar. I used it to pay my student loan.

Thank you for letting me know about the found Key Packet.
I have put together a tutorial and here is the address.



Or you could scroll through the archive to find it.

In a nutshell, what you discovered is one of hundreds of a huge art installation project that is still ongoing. The key is of no known value, and why two wooden plugs? Why not.

Good luck on that student loan. I've written often about modern students and their burden, a burden I did not have to endure.
Best of luck, nice person.
