About Me

My photo
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.

MONDAY #2628

One Of My Very Own…

This was my breakfast Sunday. It don’t get any better than that.

Now some political bullshit I will, more or less, allow to speak for itself.

MUSIC TO SCROLL WITH




….-<{o0O0o}>-….
LET’S START OFF WITH PEOPLE WHO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING


Yes, that is exactly who you think it is.



I once worked in a warehouse and would have to ship massive fan belts. Some of the industrial kinds were two inches thick and 20' long and DID NOT want to fit in any box.
Then the old pro taught me the trick. You lay the fan belt out on the floor, lean down and grab it with two hands, palms up about two or three feet apart, then flip it in the air and as it falls you place one hand over the other with palms down. That, Gentle Reader, is how you get them coiled like the picture above.

Speaking of ice, here is an excellent illustration of a previously posted Tree-Pit.

CYBER ATTACKS BEING REPELLED

Visualization of a massive distributed denial of service attack against vidolan.org, makers of the famous VLC video player. Visualization generated with Logstalgia. 


A Voice over IP server launches honeypots (green circles) to defend itself against malicious scans (red dots).

During a period of 10 or 20 minutes Youtube (red circle bottom left) was able to defend itself against the bogus routing of Pakistan and reclaim the traffic. During the period of hijacking possibly some tera- or maybe even petabytes of video traffic were not delivered to internet users.

Many years ago the Supreme Court ruled that the government had the right to record the addresses of your outgoing mail and the return addresses of your incoming mail. It was stated that as soon as you put it in a mail box you had no right to assume any privacy rights.
Similarly, you send a signal off through the ether, you MUST assume that somebody could and would record it. Sorry, but I agree. You want privacy? Send them a real letter.

Not to brag, but when I was in Germany I had a lot of German girlfriends. Several times I would ask them to explain various cartoons and such from magazines. I would just look at them and say, “That’s not even funny.” And most of them agreed with me.

Saw a huge photo collection of a model train set-up.

Often a banana was added for scale.


Then I came upon this image.

With that one little addition he created a Oh Shit moment....drama, if you will, with the addition of the bear.

Speaking of animals on the roadway…
Good goddamn, I didn’t know there were that many sheep in the whole world.

That stuff still blows me away.

As does this.
Dear conspiracy theorist, after seeing images like this, I’m surprised the building stood as long as it did.

Tell Bernard, that if you lift the cap on social security you will be paying 40% of that persons salery when they turn 67 till they die. The rich can afford to live a long time

I'm sorry it's early in the morning, but I don't understand. Here's what I think it's similar to:
In South Carolina they imposed a special tax on new car sales with the thinking being that if you can afford a new car, then you can afford a couple hundred dollars to fix the roads or whatever. But they capped it at $300, so my Toyota's tax is the same as your top of the line Mercedes even though it costs three times as much.
I think Social Security ought to be a flat out percentage of ones income. Is that a bad thing?

I think what the previous anon is saying, you get out what you put in. The rich guy would get all the money back when he started to collect. Isn't that how it's supposed to work? A forced retirement plan?

Ralph Henry said...

So why not call it a Retirement Insurance Policy? You pay your premiums to protect you if you can't afford to survive when you get too old to work. Just like auto or home insurance, if there are no problems then you do not get your money back. For example, Bill Gates.

I agree with you Sir Ralph tax them up to their maximum income on social security but then put a means test on the payout.

The rich will change how they get paid. Like stocks so they will pay tax only when they sell or take a dividend and no fica. You wat a fair tax have a national salles tax on everthing but food from grocery stores and rent and medicine. I live on a couple of mil i inherited and its in a plain savings account pays .05%. Fuck the poor bastards.

I have long supported the federal sales tax. It could be adjusted weekly if need be to keep the same money flowing in. It would tax bank robbers, drug dealers and big bankers who have five lawyers and an equal number of CPAs to make sure they pay no taxes. You buy something, you pay the tax.
Now I understand that there must be exemptions. I am not sure about that, but haven't given it much thought. Why should the poor family buying beans and flour pay the same (0) tax as the family buying pounds of caviar and goose liver? Same with rent. Exempt rent and that 1 million a month Fifth Avenue apartment goes untaxed. I agree with medicine exemption.
