Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Fifteen Isn't New Unless You Are A Tortoise Or A Rock

The FFA ordered service on a potential defective part on some Boeing 737's, horizontal stabilizer pins. Here is the last line of the news article:

The aircraft included in the directive are relatively new, entering service in 1998 or later.

Hold it, 1998? "New"? "Relatively"? I would never think of a 15 year old plane, that flys almost every day, as any kind of new.


Plato Missouri is the Mean Center of Population for the United States of America. Does that mean that the farther you are away from there the nicer you are?


I am glad they changed how you play the Texas Lotto. Starting tomorrow they have new options. Now I wiLL be able to play eXactly how I currently played.


One of my favorite math problems that I have wrote about has almost a thousand hits, which is alot for my blog. It had quite a few yesterday so I figure it might go past 1,000 today. My Solutions to the Seven Bridges of Königsberg Math Problem


What kind of idiot sets off bombs at a marathon race? There are people there from aLL over the world; there is nothing political or religious about running - who are you targeting? And of aLL places, Boston, you even picked a place with my name. You kiLLed an 8 year old little boy. This is a stupid kind of evil.

Those planes are almost as old as my PC it has a defective part, but one day they might fix me....

I am pleased to see a maths post doing well Mr ESB it is a good sign and must mean some folk like to use their minds.

I did think of you when I heard about the bombs and thought how stupid it was, as you say it is an event with people from all over the world who are there just to run. How such a thing is meant to help the cause of any group for any reason makes no sense, stupid kind of evil is exactly what it was.

Commercial aircraft are full of old and used parts. If every replacement was a new part, plane tickets would cost millions of dollars.

Mia: I realize that old airplanes can be safe, it was the whole idea of caLLing something 15 years old as new.

I am in need of some very dark chocolate with caramel and sea salt just to get through the thought process of idiots that I cannot find and have a major talking to.
