Unfazed At NASA

From here,

A woman with a Ph.D. in planetary science has called out a man she matched with on the dating app Hinge after the potential suitor joked that the woman’s real-life work experience at NASA was likely as “the receptionist.”

She fired back at the failed flirtation by sharing that her mother works as a receptionist – and that judging a woman’s intellect based on her looks isn’t the greatest way to start a potential relationship.

Well, I don’t know, that depends.  Complementing women on their appearance is often a good bet.  Kidding around in a playful manner is also often a good bet.  Probably he was playing the odds.  Since online dating is a bit of a crap-shoot, this appears to be rational.

“And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why I am single,” McKeown joked of the tale, sharing two screenshots of the Hinge conversation with a bachelor identified only as Mikey.

There might be other reasons, but we will reserve judgement for now.

The two connected after Mikey replied to one of the woman’s profile prompts that read “The dorkiest thing about me is: I worked at NASA.”

“That’s cool, wait ‘til I tell my parents,” Mikey wrote back.

McKeown started a chat, and the bachelor opened up the conversation with a painfully cringe-worthy question.

“So what are you like the receptionist? [Just kidding] you look reasonably smart,” he asked.

An attempt at playful banter.  Standard faire.  And yes, lots of women are in reception roles, especially younger better looking ones.  Playing the odds seemed like a reasonable bet.

Unfazed, the scientist quickly shut down the line with opinions of her own.

“Smart enough to know at least that judging a woman’s intelligence based on her appearance might not be the best way to initiate conversation,” McKeown wrote. “PS. my mother is a primary school receptionist and is the wisest, most inspirational, and kindest person I know. So much so in fact that my PhD. thesis in planetary science is dedicated to her.”

Well actually she seemed kind of fazed to me.

So she pulls rank with a snarky response.  Short answer – what guy would want to marry that.  Even if he is Dr. Chief Scientist, who says he values intelligence in a future wife, would he view her as potential wife material?

Of course, we don’t know anything about this specific lady, but consider her in the light of the world at large we can.  We all know that the path is cleared for women in STEM fields.  They receive extra attention, extra this and extra that.  In short, the institutions want really, really badly for them to succeed.  With such a mentality, one might question something or other about these STEM ladies.

So what do we predict as the future path for this young lady?

P.S.  One wonders why NASA even exists anymore.

    Speaking of….I wrote back to my MLM “friend” and told her funds were tight because our house was falling around us, yada yada, so it will be months before I have discretionary income. Which is true.
    No response.

    So this is a rough recap of our conversation:
    Her: OMG! I’m so sorry I haven’t caught up with you in so long! How are you doing? Things are good here tee hee! Hey can I send you a video on how to feel amazing?

    Me: I guess I can watch it.

    Her: Okay, I want to make sure to send you the right one…what is it you need to feel your very best?

    Me: (explanation above)

    Her: crickets.

    Gosh, I guess she didn’t really want to catch up nor did she care how I’m doing.
    I’m hurt. And surprised. Just kidding.

    Now, if it were me and I was trying to peddle expensive probiotics to folks, I’d at least respond with, “okay, no problem….hope your house situation gets under control soon”.
    Or some such. But then again I wouldn’t peddle crap to people and place them in an awkward position of having to reject it in the first place.
    Last assignment there was a crazy MLM essential oils dealer. She started a “monthly luncheon” where we’d invite everyone in the neighborhood over, just as a little get together, one weekday a month. Each of us would take turns and the first one was at her house.
    I thought that was a great idea and would give people a chance to know one another.
    She only wanted to sell her essential oils. Over the course of two years she never came to another get together. She did come to our Christmas party (snacks, not dinner…over 200 people) and ask if there was anything she could eat because she was a vegan.
    I took some hummus out of the fridge.
    Her husband was a really good guy too. I have to wonder how the hell he ended up with that?
    She must’ve been really good looking a long time ago (weighs about 300 pounds now…yes, that’s right, a vegan).

    For the first time in centuries, compasses in Greenwich are about to point directly at true north: an epic coincidence of time and magnetism that hasn’t taken place for some 360 years.

    This serendipitous occurrence – which is set to occur within the next fortnight – serves as a startling reminder of how Earth’s magnetic north pole is constantly wandering, unlike the fixed ‘true north’ of Earth’s geographic north pole.

    The angular difference between those two different points is called magnetic declination, and while the gap might not be something ordinary people spend a great deal of time thinking about, it’s a disparity that can last for centuries at a time.

    For hundreds of years now in the UK, due to Earth’s shifting magnetic north pole, declination has been negative, meaning compass needles have been pointing west of true north.

    But nothing lasts forever. The agonic – an invisible line that connects Earth’s north and south magnetic poles (and which represents zero declination wherever it passes through) – has been moving westward at approximately 20 kilometres (about 12 miles) per year.

    I assume that something similar will be happening Down Under. Sorry Americas, nothing for you

As a social-change agent and community organizer, I get to be involved with a variety of people working toward systemic change.”

    The whole tale falls apart at the end of the book, Mollie Hemingway writes. There, the authors say: “We spoke multiple times to Keyser, who also said that she didn’t recall that get-together or any others like it. In fact, she challenged Ford’s accuracy. ‘I don’t have any confidence in the story.'”

    In her own book, “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court,” Hemingway details the pressure applied on Keyser to get her to back up Ford’s tale. The new book does so, too, saying Ford’s friends “had grown frustrated with Keyser. Her comments about the alleged Kavanaugh incident had been too limited, some of them felt, and did not help their friend’s case. Surely, given what a close friend Keyser had been, she could say more to substantiate Ford’s testimony and general veracity, even if she could not corroborate Ford’s more specific memories.”

    The pressure grew intense. “I was told behind the scenes that certain things could be spread about me if I didn’t comply,” Keyser told the authors

    Since the advent of the Trump hat phenomenon I haven’t spent much time in the USA, and my sundry sojourns in Aussie and Asia have failed to bring any Trump hats to my attention. Not a single one. Come hell or high water I’m going to acquire one.

    Although unlikely to be unique Down Under, a Trump hat should nevertheless be uncommon enough to cause quite a stir. In the interests of anonymity I’ll be wearing shades and perhaps some suitably dignified attire to go with the hat. With a bit of luck it might bring the local Antifa out of the woodwork, in which case I shall make it my business to return their blows with compounding interest.

    Obituary of Joseph A. Heller, Jr.
    Joe Heller made his last undignified and largely irreverent gesture on September 8, 2019, signing off on a life, in his words, “generally well-lived and with few regrets.”

    When the doctors confronted his daughters with the news last week that “your father is a very sick man,” in unison they replied, “you have no idea.”

    God thankfully broke the mold after Joe was born to the late Joseph Heller, Sr. and Ruth Marion (Clock) on January 24, 1937 in New Haven, CT. Being born during the depression shaped Joe’s formative years and resulted in a lifetime of frugality, hoarding and cheap mischief, often at the expense of others.

    Being the eldest was a dubious task but he was up for the challenge and led and tortured his siblings through a childhood of obnoxious pranks, with his brother, Bob, generally serving as his wingman. Pat, Dick and Kathy were often on the receiving end of such lessons as “Ding Dong, Dogsh*t” and thwarting lunch thieves with laxative-laced chocolate cake and excrement meatloaf sandwiches.

    His mother was not immune to his pranks as he named his first dog, “Fart,” so she would have to scream his name to come home if he wandered off. . . . . .

    U.S.—After California added Iowa to its growing list of states to which the government will not fund trips, all the other states began clamoring to get added to this ban list.

    “Wait—there’s a way to get Californian politicians banned from traveling here? Where do we sign up?” said one state legislator in Georgia. “Is there a waiting list? Wait—all we have to do is refuse to fund gender transition surgeries!?! That’s amazing!”

    While just eleven states are currently on the list, dozens more are applying. Soon, almost every state except Oregon and New York will be on the list, and peace and utopia will break out across the nation as CA politicians will no longer be able to go there and say weird things and do even dumber things.

    The states were disappointed to learn that the ban didn’t include all Californians, but they said banning just the politicians was a good start, since they’re the ones who ruined the state to begin with.



  88. Farm Boy says:

    “The strained efforts by politicians and media outlets to insist that the absence of evidence against Kavanaugh amounts to an indictment of his conduct and character has split the Democratic Party, unified their opposition, energized Republican voters, and sacrificed the credibility of the left-leaning news outlets that dedicated themselves to the promotion of a perfidious narrative over the plain and simple truths of the case. It’s a testament to the impenetrability of the bubble in which they operate that Kavanaugh’s harshest critics don’t seem to recognize how badly this is going for them.”
