Act Local


Over at Sigma Frame, we had this,

These problems are really insoluble, and the current SMP and MMP has no workable solution to this problem.

Yes, they do seem to be insolvable in the large, at least in the near term. However, they might be solvable in the small. The gist of it is that one needs to prepare their kids for the current world. This takes a long term approach, and is a more work than letting them grow up “normally”.

With the fellas, they will still be expected to work, so that hasn’t changed. They will also run into setbacks and much holding them back. That hasn’t changed either, though perhaps things have become a bit tougher. What they need is the red pill, the understanding of how men and women really operate, and how it works in today’s world. In short, the propaganda is not reality. From this understanding, they can go forth and maximize their chances with women, or go their own way.

With the gals, the first thing that they need to learn is modesty. They are not all that they are told that they are. That doesn’t mean that they can’t develop skills and the like, but they need to realize that there is big world out there, and they just don’t know the half of it (the world normally works hard to keep the guys modest). They also need to learn to focus on others as much as themselves. When I was a kid, the 4H had a service club, where girls learned how to be of service to others. This all helps with the modesty thing, and furthermore prepares them to be mothers. Along with this is learning how to be gracious.

Then there is the how to view the fellas thing. This starts with the idea that they should not be viewed in terms of alpha fucks and beta bucks. Once they go down that road, there is little chance of recovery. If she wants to marry and have kids, she should view prospective fellas in terms of character, intelligence, etc. And when she chooses, she should feel grateful that she was chosen. This all goes to modesty and the like.

So we try to generate unicorns.

    Discussion with elderly relative today. She’s concerned because grandson cannot find anyone to marry. He’s 25, a CPA, has a good career already and buying his own house. She stated that he “lacks confidence.” One thing the young professional womyn do not lack is confidence, and if you don’t have it they smell your fear even more keenly than a pit bull. Why a lack of confidence?
    Possibilities:
    1) Fear of rejection. Worried that approaching will result in nuclear rejection. Possible, if you’re not the straight up amog it happens.
    2) Doesn’t think he’s good enough. What is the measure of a man? And how many families/schools/churches constantly teach boys and young men they aren’t good enough for a “real woman.”
    3) Doesn’t want to deal with the drama. Has a good life in most ways, views introducing a woman into his life as having too great a potential for negative downsides; replaces married sex with porn/hookups/whatever.

    Proponents of the vaccine are unwilling or unable to understand the thinking of vaccine skeptics — or even admit that skeptics may be thinking at all. Their attempts to answer skepticism or understand it end up poisoned by condescension, and end up reinforcing it.

    But a study done at MIT showed that a substantial portion of public-health skepticism was highly informed, scientifically literate, and sophisticated in the use of data. Skeptics used the same data sets as those with the orthodox views on public health.

    On Friday, Joe Biden made the outlandish statement that COVID-19 misinformation is killing people.

    “On COVID misinformation, what’s your message to platforms like Facebook?” a reporter asked Biden.

    “They’re killing people,” Biden replied. “I mean, they’ll, really, look. The only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated. And they’re killing people.”

    I think Biden is overcompensating here. He’s trying to blame social media for a problem he created. Last year, both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris raised doubts about the safety and efficacy of the vaccines we’d get from Operation Warp Speed. “As we enter the height of election season, President Trump should assure us all that the White House will respect the independent authority of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to decide, free from political pressure, if the vaccine is safe and effective,” Biden said in a statement in July.

    A couple of months later, Kamala Harris also cast doubt on a potential vaccine for COVID-19. When asked by CNN’s Dana Bash whether she trusted the efficacy of the vaccine, Kamala Harris basically said she didn’t. “If past is prologue, then they will not. They’ll be muzzled, they’ll be suppressed, they will be sidelined,” Harris claimed, without evidence. “Because he’s looking at an election coming up in less than sixty days, and he’s grasping for whatever he can get to pretend that he’s been a leader on this issue when he’s not.”

    Gov. DeSantis Shows Kamala and Joe How Its Done With His Visit to Border
    By Nick Arama | Jul 18, 2021 12:30 PM ET

    So, Texas has been trying to step up to deal with the problem in their own state themselves, because of the failure of the federal government, as has Arizona. Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey put out the calls for help — and Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis was one who answered the call, lending Florida law enforcement officers to Texas.

    He actually visited the border himself (doing far more than Kamala Harris ever did) with Gov. Abbott, meeting in Del Rio, Texas, and actually going to the border wall.

    People who have had it don’t need the vaccine. People who haven’t had it, but know a lot of people who didn’t get very sick, aren’t in a rush. The increasingly shrill hectoring from media and government probably also makes some people more reluctant. Takeaway: “People aren’t buying it. The incentives don’t seem to be working – whether it’s a doughnut, a car, or a million dollars.”

    What Fauci ignored is that undercounting or removing the number of Americans who possess natural immunity is considered a scientific error of omission. While infection disease professionals estimate that 60% of the population needs to have been exposed for herd immunity to be reached, John Hopkins has estimated that 80% – 85% of American adults have acquired natural immunity.

    The news about the U.S. Covid pandemic is even better than you’ve heard. Some 80% to 85% of American adults are immune to the virus: More than 64% have received at least one vaccine dose and, of those who haven’t, roughly half have natural immunity from prior infection. There’s ample scientific evidence that natural immunity is effective and durable, and public-health leaders should pay it heed.

    Only around 10% of Americans have had confirmed positive Covid tests, but four to six times as many have likely had the infection. A February study in Nature used antibody screenings in late summer 2020 to estimate there had been seven times as many actual cases as confirmed cases.

    Democrats had an opportunity to make a gesture of good faith showing that they believe in election integrity. They could have supported forensic audits in Arizona, Georgia, and Pennsylvania. Instead, they cried foul. They acted like they were worried about what an audit might find instead of confident in the election results. Imagine for a second that Democrats, instead of opposing the audit in Maricopa County, Arizona, had decided that a forensic audit would prove once and for all that Joe Biden legitimately won the state and supported it as long as they were allowed to help determine which private firms would be on the audit team.

    While we don’t know what the findings of the Maricopa County audit are yet, from the very beginning, it’s been branded a “partisan audit” or a “Republican audit” to preemptively dispute the findings. However, a truly bipartisan audit with an audit team chosen by both parties is the only way the audit results have a chance of being accepted by most voters on both sides of the aisle.

    Interesting anecdote from someone at another forum:

    I was recently talking to a business owner I know.
    I was actually considering investing 4 years ago when he started this business. I didn’t do it because in the contract discussions an unnegotiable condition was all profits would be reinvested for 5 years.
    That is a good business strategy.
    But nothing that I have ever done lasts for more than 5 years without going to shit. Fortunately, that forces me into something better. Your mileage may vary.
    They were expanding and I was kicking myself a bit. Then they got a buyout offer from a big company… and I really kicked myself. Investors said yes! The owner said No… it could be far more valuable.
    He was right.
    But here we are.
    He is burning through cash… corporate and personal.
    “So why aren’t business owners like you fighting back?”
    “Are you going to lead the demonstration?”
    “I am set. I am many steps up the misery chain before it becomes my problem for me. But for you and all of those like you, why do you all watch yourselves slip into ruin without a peep?”
    No answer.

    MENLO PARK, CA—As part of an attempt to slow the spread of misinformation on its platform, Facebook has introduced a new “report post to the White House” button.

    The feature allows you to flag posts for the Biden administration to review for misinformation. Handy for opinions you disagree with, comments critical of the government, and any expressions of freedom or other anti-government sentiments, the button will instantly cause any post to be reviewed by the current administration. Biden staffers can then check whether or not the post violates its standards of truth and flag the user for further monitoring by the government.

    “We applaud Facebook, our new fourth branch of government, for taking these steps,” said Jen Psaki. “This will go a long way to helping us suppress information we find displeasing.”

    Those who get flagged multiple times will be candidates for reeducation in Biden’s Gulags for Spreaders of Misinformation or a reduced “social credit score.”

    The government notices have sparked online pushback from some Chinese and triggered a debate—as in the U.S. and elsewhere—about whether people should be required to present proof of inoculation to travel, work or undertake other routine activities outside their home. . . .

    The vaccination mandates come after months in which Chinese authorities have tried to entice citizens to get inoculated by offering free milk, eggs and bubble tea—and in one city, the chance to win a free night in a luxury hotel. Some schools urged their students to get the shot, while ride-hailing companies such as Didi Global Inc. have required drivers to get vaccinated. At many state-owned firms, getting vaccinated is seen as an act of duty.

    More than two dozen electric Proterra buses first unveiled by the city of Philadelphia in 2016 are already out of operation, according to a WHYY investigation.

    The entire fleet of Proterra buses was removed from the roads by SEPTA, the city’s transit authority, in February 2020 due to both structural and logistical problems—the weight of the powerful battery was cracking the vehicles’ chassis, and the battery life was insufficient for the city’s bus routes. The city raised the issues with Proterra, which failed to adequately address the city’s concerns.

    The city paid $24 million for the 25 new Proterra buses, subsidized in part by a $2.6 million federal grant. Philadelphia defended the investment with claims that the electric buses would require less maintenance than standard combustion engine counterparts.

    “There’s a lot less moving parts on an electric bus than there is on an internal combustion engine,” SEPTA chief Jeffrey Knueppel said in June 2019. Knueppel retired from the post just months later.

    Proterra, which had Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm on its board of directors when Philadelphia pulled the buses off the streets last year, has been highlighted by the Biden administration as a business of the future. President* Joe Biden visited the company’s factory in April and pledged in his initial infrastructure package proposal to include federal money for the electric vehicle market. The company has since been touted by top officials including White House climate adviser Gina McCarthy, who in a public meeting asked Proterra’s CEO how the federal government could spur demand for Proterra buses.

    “Even those routes needed buses to pull around 100 miles each day, while the Proterras were averaging just 30 to 50 miles per charge,” WHYY reporter Ryan Briggs wrote. “Officials also quickly realized there wasn’t room at the ends of either route for charging stations.”

    Similar problems have been found in other cities that partnered with Proterra. Duluth, Minn., which, like Philadelphia, waited three years for its Proterra buses to be delivered, ultimately pulled its seven buses from service “because their braking systems were struggling on Duluth’s hills, and a software problem was causing them to roll back when accelerating uphill from a standstill,” according to the Duluth Monitor.

    Louisville (per picture at link) has at least one of these rolling turds working (or was) a downtown route.

    Liz, I’m in NM right now helping my parents out, and will be back home in a few weeks.

    I’ve got a couple of extra rooms at my house that are available for your son if he needs a scene change. I can’t promise spectacular views, nor great weather, but make up for it in food and cheer!

    I work from home, and have access to all sorts of ‘fun’ things for a young man to keep busy with. I’ve hosted one of the crew from here at Spawny’s a while back. If you and Mike are interested just have one of the hosts give you my email.

    PS Mike and I might know some of the same people, I was in the Corps of Cadets at A&M in a Air Force outfit, got some buddies who used to/still fly lawn darts.

    At the moment we’re trying to keep an eye on him but I am sure a change of scenery would help too. I’ll noodle on it. I really, really appreciate it.

    The Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) produced a report called “The Disinformation Dozen,” based on its analysis of anti-vaccine Facebook posts.

    Of the names on the list, one is easily recognizable, only because he is notoriously anti-vaccine and the son of a political dynasty:

    Joseph Mercola
    Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
    Ty and Charlene Bollinger
    Sherri Tenpenny
    Rizza Islam
    Rashid Buttar
    Erin Elizabeth
    Sayer Ji
    Kelly Brogan
    Christiane Northrup
    Ben Tapper
    Kevin Jenkins

    Once you know the source of the users flagged by the White House, it blows up their message that this is a political issue driven by conservatives or confined to red states. The identified individuals are from all kinds of backgrounds. Some have been producing alternative health content and products for years. Almost all were opposed to vaccines before COVID-19, and some of them were so bold as to object to face masks. At least three base their opinion on past sins of the government in medical experimentation and speak specifically to those fears in the black community.

    When Los Angeles County reinstated mask mandates last week. Health officials there said the recent spike in cases was due to not having met vaccination targets. I pointed out in a column on Thursday that Los Angeles County is overwhelmingly liberal. Either virtually every Republican who lives there isn’t vaccinated or there are a lot of liberals who aren’t getting with the program.

    Team Biden and Anthony Fauci keep accusing Republicans of making this a political issue. In reality, they’re the ones who are doing that

    Liz,
    Coffee also reduces your chances of getting endometrial cancer. I always tell folks that’s why I drink it. 🙂

    Regarding the janitor in the mop bucket with the leaf blower and the umbrella, let me explain:
    While it might at first look like a “pulling on your own bootstraps” situation, it has a sound explanation, and as someone who has an understanding of aerodynamics, I’ll try to put it into layman’s terms. If y’all still don’t understand, then I’ll want Sighard Hoerner’s book “Fluid Dynamic Drag” added to the list of great books for men.

    The gas powered leaf blower exhausts air at around 200 MPH from a 3.5″ diameter tube. So, that makes for a very small laminar flowing stream of air at a high velocity that cuts through the surrounding air with very little interaction, except some wind shear (which makes noise) thus there isn’t much thrust pushing back on the leaf blower. Which is much like a pure turbojet which is noisy and inefficient producing little static thrust while exhausting its air at near the speed of sound, producing noisy wind shear that can be heard for miles. The umbrella however approximates a parabolic reflector. When the laminar stream of air is spread out and turned turbulent upon striking and being diverted by the umbrella, much like how a clam shell thrust reverser diverts jet exhaust thrust forward, the now spread and turbulent air grabs onto surrounding air and accelerates it with it as it decelerates as it spreads out in every direction three dimensionally from the center of the umbrella. As the airflow decelerates and picks up additional mass the slower moving larger mass of air leaving out the back of the umbrella has much greater thrust, you might think of that as aerodynamic traction. The stream of air coming out the back of the umbrella is likely much much more than ten times the area of the original stream and is going perhaps 20 MPH and is just the perfect speed for this much greater area of air to push off of the surrounding air and push the mop bucket along at perhaps 15 MPH. The two horsepower gas powered leaf blower engine is plenty powerful enough to push mop-bucket-man faster than 15 MPH, but the inefficiency of the energy transfer and the inefficient caster wheels keep his top speed down. If you will notice the leaf blower itself does not thrust back nearly as hard as the umbrella handle pulls forward on the janitor. Thus the two unequal opposing forces result in the produced net static thrust.
    Another way of thinking about it is that the high velocity air stream shearing through the surrounding air is like my former 420HP ’71 Chevelle spinning its wheels. The more power I apply and the faster I spin out, the less actual traction I get for all that horsepower. While if I was rolling forward at 15 MPH and my wheels were turning 20 MPH, they’d likely “hook-up” and grab the road at that close of a relative speed differential. The umbrella is a three dimensional diffuser. Think of it as gearing down a car engine’s low-torque high-RPM power into much slower-RPM high-torque car launching rear wheel traction. Note to youngsters: if it ain’t rear wheel drive, it ain’t a real car. However, jet powered mop bucket guy is the real deal. Trust me it works. If you still don’t get it that’s OK. Just know that if you hook a 5,000 HP turbojet pulling against a 5,000 HP high bypass turbofan in a static tug-of-war, the fan with the larger diameter mass of slower moving air will way out pull the turbojet from a standstill even though they are producing the same power, their static thrust is quite different. The umbrella likely has a tiny loss of power it received from the leaf blower, but it converts that power quite effectively into thrust, while the leaf blower is like a car at a standstill spinning its wheels at 200 MPH. Plenty of power, but not much forward thrust. Hopefully some of that analogizing helps to clarify and describe what is happening in the video to produce the thrust differential which thrusts the umbrella and mop-bucket-man forward more effectively than the leaf blower itself thrusts backward.

I hope that all of my analogizing has helped y’all to see how the umbrella is far more efficient at producing forward thrust than the leaf blower itself is at producing thrust in the opposite direction. The small quick moving stream of air leaving the leaf blower cuts through the surrounding air not giving much rearward thrust, while the larger diameter slower moving mass of air leaving the parabolic umbrella grabs onto much more surrounding air so that it produces far more forward thrust (analogous to traction) from the same power.

    Sharkly, thanks for that explanation. I just recently got a battery-powered leaf-blower (my first leaf-blower ever). It has a rheostat power switch that I can pull with my finger or push with my thumb to vary the force of the air that the blower produces. I’m tempted to put a computer chair on wheels onto my driveway and see if I can replicate the umbrella and leaf-blower trick.
