Perfect Day

It's been a perfect day here on Oahu.
I was really hoping we'd get more rain so Obama's visit would suck.
Yeah, I'm petty.
;-P

Plus I really wanted to see the idiot try to figure out how to work an umbrella again.

Happy Corduroy Appreciation Day !



To prepare for the grandest day of them all, Joseph Blake Winston IV spent two hours cutting corduroy Wednesday night in Brooklyn, his cheeks flushed like those of a young man who had never held a sewing needle.

With help from volunteers at the City Reliquary, Williamsburg’s quirky museum, Mr. Winston proudly placed the finished brown bow tie on his white oxford shirt, draped with a brown corduroy scarf and accompanied by well-worn navy corduroy pants.

He was ready for the Grandest Meeting of the Corduroy Appreciation Club, to be held on Friday, 11|11|11 — the date that most closely resembles corduroy — ever.

“The wales have aligned,” proclaimed Mr. Winston, 26, referring to the raised ridges of the fabric he has loved since a child growing up in an unlikely corduroy hotbed, Houston.

“Corduroy is big in my family,” Mr. Winston said. “Why? Because of its comfort, style, the children’s book ‘Corduroy,’ ” he added with the long, straight face of club members trained to cloak their sarcasm.

He joined the club when he moved to New York to attend law school at Fordham University last year. “I knew as soon as I saw it that this is something I wanted to be involved in,” he said.

The club held its inaugural grand meeting at the Montauk Club of Brooklyn on Nov. 11, 2005, but has since surged in perverse popularity all over New York and in pockets of the country; parties are planned Friday in Washington, Chicago, Boston and Fromberg, Mont.

In New York, more than 350 members are expected to cram into the Gothic Desmond Tutu Center in Chelsea for pomp, speeches, secret rituals, awards, a fashion show, an 11-person choir performance, a keynote speaker, and other potential surprises. A Staten Island girl who turns 11 on Friday was chosen as the group’s Messiah, although her mother now calls her the Corduroy Queen.

Members must wear three pieces of corduroy, and the club’s craft night in Williamsburg helped people satisfy the rarely invoked three-item rule.

For numerologists and fabricologists alike, 11|11|11 is more momentous than say, Y2K.

“It’s a once in a lifetime gift,” said Kurt Schlachter, 32, who brews beer in Brooklyn and owns leopard print corduroy pajamas.

The club’s motto is “All Wales Welcome,” contrary to the fabric’s French translation, “cloth of kings.”

This year, however, all wales may not be admitted. The event has been sold out for weeks, with a waiting list impossibly long, said Ms. Pieloch, the director of events.

In finding a large enough hall, the club had to use the center’s caterer, Aramark. That meant it could not serve its signature food items that resemble corduroy — Ruffles potato chips and celery sticks — without paying a fee disproportionately ridiculous to the product. Nor could they serve the club’s drink: Quarter Rye beer, brewed by Mr. Schlachter.

Happy Binary Day !



The last one we'll see in our lifetimes.
111111
That's 63 in decimal.

Although a number of the form 2n - 1, 63 is not a Mersenne prime since n is not prime and 63 is certainly not prime either. It is a Woodall number and a Harshad number. It is a highly cototient number. It is a repdigit in base 4 (333).

I didn't understand any of that.

111011
That's 59 in decimal.
Fifty-nine is the 17th smallest prime number. The next is sixty-one, with which it comprises a twin prime. 59 is an irregular prime, a safe prime and the 14th supersingular prime. It is an Eisenstein prime with no imaginary part and real part of the form 3n − 1. Since 15! + 1 is divisible by 59 but 59 is not one more than a multiple of 15, 59 is a Pillai prime.
It is also a highly cototient number.
There are 59 stellations of the icosahedron.[1]
59 is one of the factors that divides the smallest composite Euclid number. In this case 59 divides the Euclid number 13# + 1 = 2 * 3 * 5 * 7 * 11 * 13 + 1 = 59 * 509.

Yeah, I didn't understand any of that.

Daylight Savings

So I guess you idiots are changing your clocks again for "Daylight Savings".
This in an era where most outdoor lights are either on timers or on photocells. Plus most of you will go into buildings where the lights are on regardless of how much sunlight there is. Just keep telling yourselves how smart you are.
;-P

You do know that Benjamin Franklin first suggested it as a joke ?

I grew up in Indiana before it was overwhelmed by idiots. They only went to this stupid thing after smart people like me left.

What really cracks me up lately is that I've been working in a "War Room" with around a dozen people. We have an entire wall that is nothing but windows and (being Honolulu) the sun is shining. We will be working just fine without lights and then some idiot from offshore comes into the room and turns on the lights. We all scream, "AH ! The light ! It BURNS !!!!". The dumb asses still don't get it.

People that work outside go to work just before the sun comes up and leave work just after the sun goes down. People that work inside have their lights on regardless of whether they need them or not. It doesn't matter what you do to your clocks.

Morons.

Cain Bumper Sticker

I received my Cain bumper sticker in the mail this weekend.
It is now displayed proudly on my car.
According to Janeane Garofalo and other leftists this makes me racist.
Their logic escapes me.
;-P



Yes, a woman or "A person of color" could not POSSIBLY be conservative. You are so wise Janeane. Thank you so much for instructing people how they should, nay MUST think. That's not racist or sexist at all !

Actors and Actresses, is there anything they don't know ?

I guess the things they don't know would be filled in by rock stars and the like.

I'm casting my vote because of what Lady Gaga said !

Janeane,
Have you ever heard of projection ?
Psychological projection or projection bias is a psychological defense mechanism where a person subconsciously denies his or her own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to the outside world, usually to other people. Thus, projection involves imagining or projecting the belief that others originate those feelings.

Ann Coulter Discussing Herman Cain



The Liberals have two "death cards" in their playbook that have been over-used again and again:

  • Not a member of a minority race: "Racist !"

  • Otherwise: "Sexual Harassment !"

They've done this for years, the most infamous being the slimy crap they tried on Clarence Thomas.

It didn't work then, it won't work now.

All they accomplished was giving Herman Cain his biggest day of fund raising so far.

The American people can see through this crap and we are sick of it.

I contributed to Herman Cain's campaign again tonight.

Please do the same.

Let's face it. This man is not a Bill Clinton. Huh, I guess if he were the lamestream media would ignore this.

Happy Binary Day !



110111. That's 55 in decimal.

Fifty-five has the interesting property that it is the 10th Fibonacci number and the sum of the numbers 1 to 10.
It is a heptagonal number, a centered nonagonal number, and a triangular number (the sum of the numbers 1 to 10) and a square pyramidal number (the sum of the squares of the integers 1 to 5). It is also a Fibonacci number (the largest Fibonacci number to also be a triangular number) and a Kaprekar number.
55 is a semiprime, being the product of 5 and 11 and it is the 2nd member of the (5.q) semiprime family. 55 is one of only two integers with an aliquot sum of 17 (the other being 39). 55 has an aliquot sequence of 4 members: (55, 17, 1, 0).

Yeah, I didn't understand any of that.

10/11/11 That's 47 in Decimal.
Forty-seven is the fifteenth prime number, a safe prime, the thirteenth supersingular prime, and the sixth Lucas prime. Forty-seven is a highly cototient number. It is an Eisenstein prime with no imaginary part and real part of the form 3n − 1.
It is a Lucas number.
It is also a Keith number, because it recurs in a Fibonacci-like sequence that begins 2, 1, 3, 4, 7, 11, 18, 29, 47…. Notice that its digits appear as successive terms in the series.
Forty-seven is a strictly non-palindromic number.
Its representation in binary being 00101111, 47 is a prime Thabit number, and as such is related to the pair of amicable numbers {17296, 18416}.
Forty-seven is a Carol number. It is a real prime number.

Yeah, I didn't understand any of that either.

Happy Binary Day !



10/10/11. That's 43 in Decimal.
Forty-three is the 14th smallest prime number. The previous is forty-one, with which it comprises a twin prime, and the next is forty-seven. 43 is the smallest prime that is not a Chen prime. It is also the third Wagstaff prime.
43 is the fourth term of Sylvester's sequence, one more than the product of the previous terms (2 × 3 × 7).
43 is a centered heptagonal number.
Let a(0) = a(1) = 1, and thenceforth a(n) = (a(0)2 + a(1)2 + ... + a(n-1)2) / (n-1). This sequence continues 1 1 2 3 5 10 28 154... (sequence A003504). Amazingly, a(43) is the first term of this sequence that is not an integer.
43 is a Heegner number.
43 is a repdigit in base 6 (111).
43 is the largest natural number that is not an (original) McNugget number.
4 15 17 7
5 19 13 6
20 9 2 12
14 0 11 18
This is the smallest prime number expressible as the sum of 2, 3, 4, or 5 different primes:
43 = 41 + 2
43 = 11 + 13 + 19
43 = 2 + 11 + 13 + 17
43 = 3 + 5 + 7 + 11 + 17.

Yeah, I didn't understand any of that.

Occupy Wall Street: A Manifesto

A great summary of who these ass-hats are and what they stand for by David Harsanyi.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men, women and transgendered -- and any other human who is able to elude the tyranny of work for a couple of weeks -- are created equal. We gather to be free not of tyranny, but of responsibility and college tuitions. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that a government long established and a nation long prosperous be changed for light and transient causes. So let our demands* be submitted to a candid world.
First, we are imbued with as many inalienable rights as a few thousand college kids and a gaggle of borderline celebrities can concoct, among them a guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment and immediate across-the-board debt forgiveness -- even if that debt was acquired taking on a mortgage with a 4.1 percent interest rate and no money down, which, we admit, is a pretty sweet deal in historical context...

...but down with the modern gilded age!

Go read the whole thing.

Massive Cornwall Rockfall



It looks a little like something from a slightly rough and ready disaster film.

In fact it is a piece of Cornwall tumbling into the Atlantic Ocean, caught by a cameraman apparently out for a clifftop walk.

The footage of tens of thousands of tonnes of rock crashing into the sea has been posted on YouTube and is attracting the interest of geologists from around the world.

It is not that such falls are particularly rare but it is uncommon for such clear footage to be captured.

The cameraman was on the North Cliffs near Hell's Mouth in north Cornwall when the earth started to move.

One woman who is with the cameraman can be heard crying: "Oh My God" as part of the 100 metre high cliff peels away. A man asks: "Are there any people down there?"

Engineering geologist Pete Hobbs of the British Geological Survey said: "That is some of the best footage I've ever seen of a rock-fall." He estimated that about 100,000 tonnes of rock had fallen into the sea.

"You get something like this once every five years maybe. The chances of catching this on video are incredibly slim: I suspect the cameraman must have noticed something.

"I wonder if he heard some noise or heard some movement before the fall? It is absolutely amazing footage."
