If you really want to trudge, take the 4D path that starts with Trump, Mueller, Sater and Rosenstein plotting a Kabuki script that includes Jim Jordan and Devin Nunes lying to their constituents.

Oh my dear loving God, I just watched the 8 year old absolutely kill it with the Alexa Donkey Chompers parody. My sides hurt! I had to watch it a few times because I was laughing so hard! 🤣

You can find it at AT. Don’t miss!

The news feed on my iPhone has a headline from CNN that reads 'Mueller's report looks bad for Obama'. 😍

Miss Marple linked it on the last thread, lyle.

Speaking of Donkey Chompers, does anyone think it's weird, like JEF+ weird, that the video being mocked was of her talking about the Green New Deal as if it had already been in effect and she's self stroking from a future perspective?

A small warning. On keto I never crave the carbs I loved so much before. But if I start eating keto sweet things, that changes.


That's because ANYTHING sweet, whether it has sugar or fake sugar in it, releases insulin. Just THINKING about sweets releases insulin!
INSULIN MAKES YOU STORE FAT.
It STOPS the fat burning.
It also drops your blood sugar--which makes you hungry.

"Keto" sweets are not something I advocate. You are sabotaging yourself if weight loss is your goal.
Have some berries, or a small piece of dark chocolate.

Clarice's cheesecake though has lots of protein and fat in it, so it's likely to be less of a problem than a "keto" cookie would be.

My friend recently received a high A-1C result and I have convinced her to try it. I also found out another teacher's husband had insulin-dependent diabetes and after following this diet, is no longer a diabetic. More doctors must be waking up on this issue.

I was SO EXCITED this morning as I listened to People's Pharmacy (podcast will be available Monday at noon eastern time), and heard their interview w HARVARD DOCTOR and Cancer researcher William Li, whose book Eat to Beat Disease is all about the nutritional basis for health.

Yes folks, the big time academic research guys have discovered THE VITAL IMPORTANCE OF FOOD!

Happy hour starts in 30 minutes.

That sounds wonderful!

Due to the funeral on Monday and Tuesday, no family gathering for Easter this year.

It will just be my daughter and me and we will have a small ham dinner.

I still don’t get it.

It’s a goofy illustration of the Doppler Effect, Jane. Short blue wavelengths shift to longer red wavelengths. Notice how long the guy’s nose gets in the red car. Plus the car itself elongates.

I’m cleared for absolutely no food preparation other than for the two of us. Happy Easter and Passover, everyone.

Here at Notre Dame we will get in line about 2:30 to get a seat in a pew for the Easter Vigil. (Doors open at 7:30, mass starts at 9:00, finishes about midnight.) This is our 7th year, and, yes, it’s like camping out for Stones tickets!

Never say never, I say, but I am not that Catholic! ;-)
I bet it is a beautiful service.
I do have my alarm set for 8:58 though, and am planning to catch the livestream from the link cathy f posted this morning---in my pajamas!

We went to Easter Sunday Mass the year my son was a freshman---Lord, how can that be 13 years ago????

Somehow this is all turning into Duke & Duke. Comey is definitely Randolph while Mortimer would be Obama.

Trump is definitely Billy Ray. I can hear him snapping that dollar bill now.

As to intel bias, Obama politicized every single organization within the federal government. Remember what he did almost immediately with the National Endowment for the Arts? It became a propaganda tool. IRS, EPA, DoJ, all the way down the line. The nematodes are still there.

Brennan is a clear example, as is Clapper. Even Panetta was a douche congressman.

Headed to the BiL's tomorrow and God help us. Not sure if Mac n Cheese and tuna casserole are on the menu. With luck there will be some fresh seabass or yellowtail, as he is a charter captain. Come to think of it, that may not be too bad after all. We'll bring the veggies.

I TOTALLY don't get physics--like at all. EVER.
It's a miracle I passed my required class. Lowest grade I ever got.

I can read maps though, and have a good sense of direction.

clarice

BTW anonamom, erythirol apparently does NOT raise insulin levels. I do not know about other non sugar sweeteners.
It's absorbed into the bloodstream and then excreted unchanged in the urine. When healthy people are given erythritol, there is no change in blood sugar or insulin levels. ... Summary Erythritol does not raise blood sugar levels. This makes it an excellent sugar replacement for people with diabetes.Apr 23, 2018

Amom,

Before I went to law school I went to MBA school. In my first class of my second year - I think it was calculus - I couldn't understand what was on the board, or the professor's thick accent. I started to laugh. Professor told me it wasn't funny.

That was the day I stopped my MBA.

MissMarple2

anonamom,

Your comment reminded me of subbing for a high school class about 20 years ago, in the school system adjacent to ours.

I had a high school class and they were working on a map problem. I was dumbfounded to discover they didn't understand directions on maps. I tried to explain it by pointing out the window (north and the direction of the City of Indianapolis).

Not only did they not know which direction that was, they didn't know that was the direction to the city! Some of them are still probably driving aimlessly around to this very day.

Kids should be taught practical stuff like how to read a map and how to cut measurements in half. To not do so is to leave them ill-equipped for getting around in adulthood.

I TOTALLY don't get physics--like at all. EVER.

Classical or Newtonian physics? Are you sure you just don't like it? Because I'm pretty sure you intuitively understand some of it. Quantum physics is another matter, so to speak.

In a recent discussion of some Darwinian anomalies I came to the conclusion, ok hypothesis, that as a species we're never going to understand everything sciency because we're just too limited in brainpower. Not that we shouldn't try to push the limits of what we know but it strikes me as the height of hubris to believe we can accomplish it, like expecting a cow to read.

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

I did fine in first semester physics. My professor was an old guy who had collected hundreds of cereal and Crackerjack premiums and used them to demonstrate the principles. It was entertaining, aaand because I could see it, I caught on.

Second semester was a struggle because I had a Chinese guy with a heavy accent and everything was invisible.

Captain Hate

Miss Marple,

Physics and most math classes are heavily dependent on the teacher to make the light go on for most students. There are savants who are wired to grasp things quickly even from a terrible textbook. And there are some people who will never grasp it and it's a fool's errand to expect otherwise.

MissMarple2

GUS,

Local forecast says 68. Warmer next week.

Enjoy it Miss M, and have a Blessed Easter.

Buckeye

I was wired to understand physics.

Grammar and spelling, however, continue to provide a real challenge:)

Thanks, Jane. My office swapped out my laptop (for a crappier one with updated software)and with it went all my saved passwords, etc. So I lost my fake info for my fake e-mail address for typepad, and then I got busy with a bunch of other stuff.

When I tried to recover the google e-mail account I set up for typepad, I eventually stumbled upon the correct username and even remembered the password, but then they wanted to verify that I was really me and I couldn't remember who the fake person was who I made up for google.

So I made up another fake person for another fake e-mail address so I can log onto typepad and comment here.

Anyway I am back but I don't have anything brilliant to say right now.

Never stopped me before, of course...

Physics joke:

Well my undergrad was physics so I got it ...

But it's pure Doppler because relativity would make the car going away just as short as the car coming but it would still be red.

Probably wouldn't have made the joke any easier to get.

Is the joke funny if you get it? Or is it just a physics "joke"?

Just think of it like a car or train horn. Coming toward you, the pitch is higher than when it passes you and is going away. That's because the sound waves are getting closer to each other while the sound source is coming toward you, raising the frequency, and farther away from each other as it's receding. The same thing happens with light, and the blue wavelength is shorter than the red.

This effect is why astronomers hypothesize that the universe is expanding, because of the differences in the so-called "red shift" that can be seen from distant stars.

In case it hasn’t been mentioned, Friday’s WSJ has a really interesting piece about the Notre Dame cathedral, detailing how it had been neglected and was crumbling in the weeks and years leading up to the fire. It also talks about the repair and restoration project that had not really started. Still it sheds no light at all on the cause of the fire. Probably behind the paywall, but I’ll link it anyway.

Needless to say, government ownership doesn’t lead to the best outcomes.

a—mom, the point of the line is that we get some of the precious pews in front of the altar. The front half of the pews are all reserved for Catechumens and candidates and Holy Cross sisters and brothers, so there’s not much space for congregation Those black chairs behind the altar you have to watch the action on the TV screens. Easter Vigil with no kneelers is ok, but Good Friday in the black chairs is brutal! We got here at 1:30 for yesterday’s 3pm Liturgy and avoided the black chairs, and we still had to sit on the side aisle.

(Although we were in the perfect spot to see WonderGirl. I was against the wall so I took a good picture, and some video, too.)

Ext just explained what I was about to describe. About 150 yrs ago they put a trumpeter on a flatcar behind a steam locomotive and had it speed by a group of swells. For those with perfect pitch the sound was way high as the train approached and then slurred down to well below proper pitch as it went by. Wasn’t any other way to demonstrate that back in the day. Now we just instinctively recognize the effect without necessarily grasping the significance.

BTW the red shift ‘out there’ is utterly not provable. Might as well debate Intelligent Design.
