Big Screen TV

Their trailer is falling apart. There are missing tiles in the floor, the roof is severely damaged,their septic system is failing and spewing sewage all over the yard, but they have a big screen TV.

Television is the worst thing that happened to the world. It's how the big corporations control the masses.

The Russian communists called religion the opiate of the masses.

I call television the opiate of the dumbasses.

Final Workout Schedule

Moday: 40 minutes on the eliptical and 20 minutes of floor work with abs.

Tuesday: off (school)

Wednesday: Kickboxing with weights, 30 minutes on the eliptical and 10 minutes of abs.

Thursday: off (school)

Friday: Kickboxing without weights, 30 minutes on the eliptical and 10 minutes of abs.

Saturday:  40 minutes on the eliptical and 20 minutes of floor work with abs.

Sunday: Kickboxing with weights, 30 minutes on the eliptical and 10 minutes of abs.

Two days of kickboxing in a row was too much. This is more balanced.

Converting babies

This really pissed me off. A woman on JDate recounted that her son married a shiksa and then had the baby converted.

That is SO WRONG!!!!!

It goes against morality and Judaism. You cannot convert a baby. A baby cannot make up it's own mind and it's plain WRONG! And I got slammed for saying that.

What's happening to the world?

This is crazy

He's 29.
He lives in California.
He's a male version of me.
I want to meet him.
I'm out of my mind!

Exercise Changes

After a few weeks I've decided I need a few tweaks to my exercise regime.

I'm not going to do the glider on the days I kickbox. I'll still do the eliptical and I'll add in 10 minutes of abs and 10 minutes of other floor exercises. The glider aggravates my knee if I'm on it too much. But I don't want to cut it out completely, it's great for my butt and obliques. I think I'll be OK using it twice a week.

Then again, maybe I should just sell it...I can't decide...

Exercise Regime

I've decided on an exercise regime. I'm putting it in writing so I can't back out.

Tuesdays and Thursdays are school days. I'll be getting home at around 9 PM so those will be my off days.

20 minutes on the eliptical plus 20 minutes on the glider, and 10 minutes abs.


30-60 minute kick boxing workout (depends on which DVD I'm using) with weights, then 20 minutes on the glider and 20 minutes on the eliptical.


20 minutes on the eliptical plus 20 minutes on the glider, and 10 minutes abs.

Do I care too much?

I started my Kabballah course. Everything I'm hearing makes me think about Ron. I want him to listen to this. He needs to listen to this. But if I try to contact him I'll be violating the restraining order.

I could have a friend contact him, but, how can I ask someone else to do that?

Am I crazy to even care and want to try and help him now, after I failed to be able to help him for over two years?

Back from Sedona

It was nice meeting Charlie but I'm glad we've agreed to just be friends. We are way too different in a few fundamental ways that would make living together hell.

But I'm glad to have him as a friend.

There's no place like home

I was so happy to see the sign that said

"Welcome to New Mexico
The Land of Enchantment"

I was still almost 200 miles from home, but, just being in New Mexico felt so good. I don't know what it is but there really is something enchanting about it.

I'm in Denver

I'm glad I decided to go.

It was a beautiful day!

Once I got out of Chimayo and passed Chamita onto the highway the roads were great. It doesn't look like denver got much more snow than we did.

The motel room smells like maple syrup. What was I expecting for $35.00 a night? It has a little kitchenette so I can go to Whole Foods (apparently there's no TJ's in Denver, WTF?) and get some real food rather than eat at restaurants all the time. I had luch in Alamosa, it wasn't a great experience.

Time to get ready for the party.

Ticket to the Heebonism party; bought.

Motel; booked

Maps; ready

I think I'm ready to go.

Global Warming

1.The blue line shows the yearly average. If you look carefully you can see that there is a big spike in the global maximum in 1998 that dips back down in 1999 and then gradually increases upwards throughout 2000-2008. The 1998 spike is the reason some people say that global warming stopped in 1998. The spike was caused by El Nino. El Nino’s will push global temperatures up by approximately 0.01 degrees Kelvin (0.018 degrees Fahrenheit). In 1998 we had a much larger El Nino anomaly and the global temperature spiked much higher than that and then dropped back down to normal the next year. The blue line is flattening out from 2005 and I’ll explain that in the next picture. 


This picture shows sun activity. The sun has been much colder than it has been in the past century since 2005. There is concern that we could be heading into a mini ice age if the sun continues to cool. But temperatures have not dropped because of the green house gas effect. If we go into a mini ice age the green house gasses might help mitigate it slightly. On the other hand, if sun activity picks up, we will be headed for an out of control warming that could end…we don’t know where.

Graph 3 shows changes in radiative forcing of climate since 1750. The zero line represents 1750. CO2 has increased overall radiative forcing by 1.5-1.75 W/m2. CH4 has increased radiative forcing by 0.8-1.2 W/m2. The sun (on the bottom), has increased overall radiative forcing by 0.05-0.3 W/m2. That is one tenth of the radiative forcing from carbon dioxide alone. The really big uncertainty we have is clouds. Climatologists believe that the overall cloud effect will be a cooling one. But, they are far from certain. Some clouds have a cooling effect and some have a warming effect and there are so many variables that go into what kind of cloud will be formed that it’s a huge uncertainty.
But there is no uncertainty over the fact that carbon dioxide and methane have increased radiative forcing by 2.3-2.95 W/m2 while the sun alone has increased radiative forcing by 0.05-0.3 W/m2.

The point of this graph is to show how big a role water vapor plays in the warming of the planet. And the hotter it gets, the more evaporation you get, the hotter it gets, the more evaporation you get...

It isn't only CO2 that's heating the atmosphere. CO2 could, at most, raise temperatures by 1.2 degrees C/K (1.96 degrees F). The problem is that in response to the 1.2 degree rise in temperature we get another 3 degree rise from water vapor. And as I said before, overall cloud effect is uncertain.

This graph shows three things. 
The black line is actual measured temperature anomolies. The blue line is an amalgamation of climate model predictions of temperature anomalies in the 20th century using only natural variables (sun, volcanoes, etc.). The pink line shows the results of the same models when anthropogenic forcings are added in (greenhouse gasses that warm the atmosphere and anthropogenic aerosols that cool the atmosphere).

This is basically the same thing but shows only ocean predictions.

This graph shows land predictions. If you look back and forth between the global land and ocean you will see that there will be much more warming over land masses. That’s because oceans store heat. We aren’t sure if and when the oceans will stop storing heat. At that point Global Warming will increase dramatically.

This made me LOL

The guy I'm going on the trip to Sedona with is a Jewish convert.

I asked him why he converted and he said

"Catholicism was too restrictive"

Oh boy did I LOL!!!!

Science and Technology

I'm tired and need to go to bed but I want to jot this down and I'll edit it later.

Science does not "invent" anything. Science discovers truths (or what appears to be a truth) through experimentation. Technology takes the discoveries Science provides and applies it to new technology. The new technology opens doors for science to make better experiments and discover more things that technology takes...

You get the drift?
