9/11/2001

Today is the 17th anniversary of the Muslim terror attacks on America.  Never forget.  Never forgive.

17 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis.  Never forget.  Never forgive.

It's been 17 years.  Commemorating the 9/11 attacks now is a bit like commemorating Pearl Harbor day back in 1958.  But my grandparents and parents still did that through the 1980's.  Never forget.  Never forgive.

“Good Muslim American” is a logical contradiction. If they are good Muslims, they cannot be good Americans. If they are good Americans, they cannot be good Muslims. America and Islam are incompatible, polar opposites. And anyone who says otherwise is either woefully (willfully?) ignorant, or trying to sell you poison.

Dye it black

I see a Loki and I want to dye him black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see Asgardians walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
I see a line of spears and they’re all painted black
With Asgard and Heimdall both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly run away
Like a new born star it just happens every day
I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see the rainbow bridge and have to paint it black
Maybe then I’ll fly away and not have to face the facts
It’s not easy being green when your whole world is black
No more will my Blue Sun go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the second sun
My love will laugh with me before the sandworm comes
I see a Loki and I want to dye him black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see Asgardians walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
I want to see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black Shadows
I want to see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted
Painted black

Flat universe proof

It's interesting how much brain power and observations are going into trying to figure out if the geometry of the universe if "flat".  What this really means is - do the angles of a triangle add to 180 degrees, or more, or less?

Every single test has shown that the universe is Euclidian.  Flat.  It's 180 degree triangles all the way down.  A²+B²=C² is the law of the universe.

The funny part is that they seem to not have noticed that relativity, which has been thoroughly tested, only works in an Euclidian universe.  That's right.  Relativity rests upon the assumption that sin² + cos² = 1.

When you examine the space-time field, you will see that it does not stretch.  It does not bend.  It does not expand.  It simply exists, with various energy densities.  Space-time is the quantum field from which all other fields draw their energy.  So, the more energy an area possesses, the less dense the space-time field.  We experience the difference in density as gravitational attraction.

If you imagine the energy density on a plane, it looks like a graph of a parabola.  Normally, the parabola is remarkably shallow.  In the vicinity of black holes and neutron stars, the parabola is quite steep.

Now take a look at the slope of the curve at any given point.  The sine of that slope is the gravitational attraction, based on c=1.   Particles gain energy by moving from a higher to a lower energy level.  Energy is conserved, after all.

To cosine of that slope is the perceived time of a particle at that point, where 1 is the theoretical maximum possible experience of time's passage.  The universal tick, as it were.

Please note that sin²+cos²=1, where c=1.  Relativity only works in an Euclidian universe where A²+B²=C².  It really is just this simple.

This is what they really think

From the comments on today's Dilbert comic.

We need a device that when set off in the atmosphere will spread a chemical throughout the entire world that eliminates sexism, racism, stupidity and authoritarianism from all humans and modifies their genes to prevent those traits from ever returning.
Or we can go extinct. Either way works.



Mountains of corpses.  The Left always works towards mountains of corpses.  The either do not believe in, or detest, human nature.

More confirmation of my model?

Can't sleep, so thinking of physics.  Yes, I'm weird.

Universe is flat because Relativity works.  If universe weren't flat, relativity would not work.  Relativity is based on the angles of a triangle adding up to exactly 180 degrees, you know.  QED.

My model of how gravity, spacetime, and velocity work (see earlier posts) posits sine/cosine based laws of motion, energy, and perceived time.  Redshift data proves this.  Why does universal expansion appear to accelerate?  Because the slopes of sin (x) and sin^2 (x) change.  There is no actual acceleration or deceleration.  It just appears that way.  Because geometry says so.

The difference in energy levels (red shift) between two points is determined by the slopes of the individual energy curves.  Everything has a energy-differential sphere around it.  (Lowest energy in direction of motion, highest directly opposite, and neutral at 90 degrees to motion.)  This is what causes motion, perceived time, and energy gain/loss (blue/red shift).  The difference in slopes of any two objects determines this.  This is also where you get sin^2 (x) from - you multiply the two together to find the total.

Or maybe I'm just stupid tired and getting everything wrong.  That might very well be the case.

Happy Independence Day!

Excerpts from the Declaration of Independence, Philadelphia, July 4, 1776.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.  
Nobody Knows How Many Federal Agencies Exist

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
The Hague Court

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
Lon Horiuchi  Democrat committee server scandal  Hillary's email server  "Arkancide"

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
Democrats love alien invaders  True facts about alien invaders  Cartoon summary  Occupy Wall Street  Black lives (don't) matter

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

D100 Dungeon

D100 Dungeon is a great, free (1) solo dungeon crawl game.  After you download it from Board Game Geek (not the easiest thing to do), all you need to play is some paper, a pencil, two dice to make a d100, and a d6.  This game is unreasonably fun, and an obvious labor of love by its creator, Martin Knight.

For your ease of enjoyment, here are the current versions of the essential files.
D100 Dungeon Files  These are the old versions and some alternate rules.
D100 Dungeon Rules  These are the old and newly (May 2018) updated rules.

I highly recommend this game.

That being said, I can't help but tinker with game rules.  Here are my recommended alterations and additions.


  • Use the alternate investments found in the Files.  The rues as written (RAW) are incoherent.  Remember that the roll for for the pip alteration to each whole share owned.  (One share is five pips.)  My addition:  Instead of allowing only one investment of up to ten shares per investment type, allow characters to diversify their portfolios as follows, still limiting investment to ten shares each.
    • Up to 4 separate investments in Trade.
    • Up to 3 separate investment in Finance.
    • Up to 2 separate investments in Holdings.
    • Only 1 investment in Wars.
  • Use, if you wish, the perpetual dungeon found in the Files.  It makes the quests a bit longer and more costly in resources, but makes more sense and provides some continuity.  I change the "running" rule of moving through already explored rooms to this:
    • You can move through up to 3 previously explored rooms, as long as all known monsters are dead and the rooms have been searched already.  When moving more than one room per hour, roll a d10.  If the result is less than or equal to the number of rooms moved, a wandering monster is encountered in the room indicated by the die roll, and travel stops there.  For example, if you try to move three rooms, and roll a 2, you encounter a wandering monster in the second room you entered.
    • I don't recommend using the included Shop rules.  They make buying new equipment very expensive, in exchange for establishing a known fixed base of goods available.  It's basically a very expensive pawn shop for your stuff.  And "parts pie" is gross, but also funny and makes sense in a horrible sort of way.
  • Speaking of prices, the sell and purchase prices of everything are identical.  Of course, adventures find their loot damaged, so there is an actual price difference there.  My proposed alteration:  Whenever purchasing a weapon or piece of armor, roll a d10.  If the result is lower than your reputation, purchase the item at list price.  Otherwise, pay an extra fee equal to one pip of repair cost for the item.  Hey, life is hard on the new guy with no reputation to speak of.
  • There is only an 8% chance of finding a shield, the most common defensive tool in history.  I have created a new random armor table to make shields more prevalent.  Roll a d10 for armor type, then another d10 for specific piece:
    • 1-3:  Shield - used to actively block damage.  Blocks amount listed for each pip shaded.  Less than half damage blocked results in only a half pip shaded.
      • 1:  Buckler (1)
      • 2-3:  Targe (2)
      • 4-7:  Heater (3)
      • 8-9:  Kite (4)
      • 10:  Pavise (5)
    • 4-5:  Leather Armor (1 DEF)
    • 6:  Studded Leather Armor (2 DEF)
    • 7-8:  Chain Mail Armor (3 DEF)
    • 9:  Scale Mail Armor (4 DEF)
    • 10:  Plate Mail Armor (5 DEF)
    • For all Armors:  Armor passively reduces damage.  It may also be used to actively reduce damage, at the cost of 2 points of damage per pip shaded.
      • 1-3:  Helmet
      • 4-5:  Torso (covers both chest and back)
      • 6:  Sleeves
      • 7:  Gloves
      • 8:  Waist
      • 9:  Leggings
      • 10:  Boots
  • Random equipment damage:  Rather than list a specific amount of wear and tear for each item, roll on the following table with a d10.
    • 1-3:  1 pip
    • 4-6:  2 pips
    • 7-10:  3 pips
