Won't be caught up for a while, as my laptop is being commandeered this evening by the boy, his having been evidently stolen at school today! BUT, narciso, I much appreciate your point about The Time Machine. I just had my grad seminar read it and chapters of Galison's Einstein's Clocks, Poincare's Maps, and also had them write on how well Wells accounts for changing ideas in his day about time/space. I told them "choose time or space." Many of them rose to the challenge magnificently, pointing out the silliness of "momentum" throwing the Time Traveler forward when he arrives at 801,702 A.D. (or whatever it is). Two students wrote that since he's traveling in time, not space, "momentum" should be of time, not space, and he should thus be thrown forward a year or so, not a meter. But not a single one of them got your point, which I DID knew and pointed out to them, that the earth is never in the same space in the universe ever, not just because we rotate but also because the universe expands at increasing speeds. Wells imagines the Time Machine always returning to the same coordinates in his London suburb. Wells wouldn't have known about the expanding universe, but he did know about the rotation of the earth around the sun. So your note was much appreciated!

MM, our childhood illness histories and memories are nearly identical, five kids part too! And the mumps missed me as well! Though my youngest sister is 12 years younger than I am, so she missed being in the measles and chicken pox lovefest. And we were NOT allowed to scrath at all. Period. The end. NO! So emphasized that I had the feeling you died or something equally horrendous if you did..
Lots of calomine lotion on cotton balls. Felt so good!

The buzzfeed suit (which was dismissed) included sealed depositions of Steele and Kramer (McCain aid) re dossier sourcing and distribution. To be unsealed March 14. (Yay Florida Judge).

My son had a really bad case of chicken pox around age 4 - he was covered in them. I clearly remember that morning when I was in the kitchen and his 1-year-old sister was in her high chair. I had given her some cheerios to snack on while I finished her breakfast. I turned back around and a huge "pox" had appeared right on her forehead. She only had maybe 2 or 3 other spots but, like several of you, that one on her forehead left a small scar. I remember putting socks on her hands to keep her from scratching in her sleep. Obviously it didn't work.

MissMarple2

anonamom,

My mother was just not one to run the anti-scratch patrol. My dad wasn't worried, since he had survived typhoid as a kid. LOL!

Now I am remembering when my brother ran through the smoke as my dad was burning brush and got poison ivy from the smoke all over his body! He almost had to go to the hospital.

I also got impetigo on my knee when I was in 3rd grade.

It's a wonder we all survived.

About a month ago, my wife was complaining about a pain in her back below the shoulder blade and she said it kept her up at night. And then about two weeks ago she came flying out of the bathroom asking what's this rash on my side? I took a picture and showed her and she said, "I think it's shingles" It is!

Pin asked yesterday if we ride horses up here in Wintertime.

I think horse-riding has been overcome by events: Fairbanks biker sizzles on snowy trail to win 300-mile Iditarod Trail Invitational

Flaharty’s time of 1 day, 23 hours, 54 minutes was nearly six hours short of the 2015 race record set by John Lackey...

“The weather was phenomenal,” Petervary said from McGrath. “Big, blue sky, great sun and temperatures were ideal, meaning between 20 and negative-15. We like it around zero for riding, because you don’t sweat as much.

But there's more:

The Iditarod Trail Invitational is one of a handful of human-powered wilderness endurance races held on portions of the Iditarod Trail. The ITI includes 150-mile race to Rainy Pass, the 300-mile race to McGrath and a 960-mile race to Nome.

Claiming victory in the 150-mile race from Knik to Rainy Pass was biker Crispin Studer of Canada. He finished in 1 day, 11 hours, 29 minutes.

The leader of the 960-mile race, biker Troy Szczurkowski of Australia, was expected to reach McGrath on Wednesday evening.

These guys are nuts.

As a test, I just posted my first Dissenter comment, using this JOM URL. I'll check for replies if anyone else wants to try.

If they're smart, GAB will bulletproof their site. I would check out hosting in Australia.

Catsmeat, you are an exceptional professor/teacher to explain that dimesion of time to your students. They could all end up like AOC without a clue.

Catsmeat,

Finished Chapter 1 last night and enjoyed Alice doing her times tables.

‘Let me see: four times five is twelve, and four times six is thirteen, and four times seven is—oh dear! I shall never get to twenty at that rate!’” (23)—has been shown to be mathematically correct if one is allows for changing mathematical bases: “Four times 5 actually is 12 in a number system using a base of 18. Four times 6 is 13 in a system with a base of 21” (A. L. Taylor 46). If the progression is continued with the base increasing at each step by 3, as A. L. Taylor explains, the products “keep increasing by one until we reach 20, where for the first time the scheme breaks down” (46-7). And so Alice will in fact never get to twenty at that rate.

Chapter 2 tonight if I can stay awake) My problem is that your footnotes are as interesting as the text so I have to go back and wander down each one of those Rabbit Holes, chasing those fun topics.

No one has responded, and I don't remember who originally commented on it, but I agree that both Trump and Kim needed to walk away to not look weak to their own sides. Trump doesn't give anything up and Kim shows that he stands up to Trump.

Extraneus,

That was from a tweet I happened upon this morning.

ChiTown pretty much agreed with it, as he felt the kabuki is designed to make people on both sides WANT the agreement, and he also agreed that he thinks the deal already is done.

However, that post about the NK satellite overhead gave me pause.

Yes there is some of that certainly

Here we go.

Trump ordered Kelly to approve Kushner's top-secret clearance: report

President Donald Trump ordered for his adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, to be granted a top-secret security clearance last year despite warnings from intelligence officials, the New York Times reported Thursday. Citing multiple sources, the Times reported then-chief of staff John Kelly was directed by Trump to approve Kushner's clearance despite that opposition, and Kelly was so bothered by it that he wrote an internal memo detailing the order.

I'm sorry, what kind of a douchebag would write an "internal memo" on that topic?

I was in DC when the cabbies were all tuned in to this last year.

daddy

If you had chicken pox, the chicken pox herpes virus lies dormant in your nerves until it doesn't. Then it hurts.

So was it Shingles which killed the Martians in "War Of The World," or some other chickens**t virus?

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I have no doubt North Korea made their satellites look like EMP bearers, but the only value of NK nukes is as potential weapons, not real ones.
If we were to destroy those satellites and determine the wreckage contained nuclear materials we would strangle the place to death regardless of China's desires or protestations.

This is an oldie but helps explain how India and Pakistan got to where they are today.

https://legalinsurrection.com/2015/08/noakhali-day-young-hindus-reclaiming-erased-memory-of-genocide/
Recently, the Indian city of Calcutta witnessed a large demonstration marking the 69th anniversary of an infamous event, noted in the history books as the Great Calcutta Killings, and The Week of Long Knives.

The initial riots in Calcutta alone claimed some 10,000 lives. In subsequent weeks and months a million more across British-controlled India would follow — a long lost saga of mass-graves, rape and ethnic cleansing. Hushed up by subsequent Indian governments and left-wing historians, today this genocide is all but forgotten and relegated to a footnote in the history.

In 1946, anticipating a British withdrawal from India, the political bloc representing Muslims of India, Muslim League made its intentions clear that it did not want Muslims to be part of a democratic and multi-cultural India. To make the resolve known Muslim League called for the “Direct Action Day” on August 16, 1946. City of Calcutta was the epicentre of the genocide in East India that killed at least a million people and displacing about 14 million.

Since India’s independence in 1947, the subsequent Indian governments stonewalled the memory of Hindu suffering to appease the minority Muslim population. There is not a single national memorial to mark their suffering or even a day of remembrance to recall their plight. In pursuit of Islamist supremacy, Muslim League brought suffering upon millions of Muslims in India as well, who bore the brunt of Hindu and Sikh retaliation.

Narciso79

I think jeffs father passed recently, does he have brother named scott?

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

Seems to me that there is another episode in history where Muslims conquered India. They demanded the losers renounce their faith and become Muslims.
They killed Indians who did not go along with that plan. They killed and killed and killed. After quite a long time, they finally tired of killing and the whole thing petered out.

Here's a sample link. I think this article is part of the story above.
