Super Intelligent AIs

This is a pretty good article about why we should not create super intelligent AI technology.

Earth to reach temperature tipping point in next 20 to 30 years

Good article about something that hasn’t happened yet and may not happen. Written as a doom and gloom document, I don’t think there is any doubt about what this article says. I believe it. Unfortunately, unless we address the population issues there is nothing we...

Science News Dump

Today, I thought I would just do a quick dump of the news stories I found interesting and added via Instapaper. Coffee and lower prostate cancer US West pollution was mostly caused by wildfires. Shocking. I know. Exawatt class lasers – I picked this story...

Planning

Planning. We all plan. All of the time. We may not know that we are doing it but we do. When you get up in the morning, you may have thought to yourself that you’ll visit an old friend. You don’t necessarily tell anyone but...

Environmental Misbehavior

This is a new term that I coined to explain what setting up a new computing environment is like. It is full of “environmental misbehavior.” Nothing works right the first time in my world. There are way too many complexities. We can’t always think of...

Head Officially in Sand

I refuse to write about politics anymore on this blog. So, I won’t. I’m not sure about what went on yesterday but I’ll say this much… …Jesus.

The Big Bang Hang-Up

I saw an article this morning about a new telescope that is supposed to aid in our understanding of the “Big Bang” theory. You can read it here. As an official scientific community armchair quarterback, I can honestly wonder to myself out loud “who gives...

Masculinity in the Modern Age

I don’t think that just because men do things that women do necessarily makes them gay. The idea that men are supposed to be neanderthals sporting tremendous amounts of body hair and talking in the most gruff voice they can muster used to work ok...

Personal Goal – Programming

Today I spent some time on looking at some of the goals I want to achieve sometime this year. One of those goals is to learn Python 3 programming language formally. What does that mean? Formally to me means that instead of learning the language...

The Scientific Love Affair with Dark Matter

This is an official rant. Dark matter doesn’t really exist. I want to start of this quick little blog post with the facts. A quick summary about what it is… Dark Matter was created to explain behavior in other celestial objects that science cannot explain...

Peak Season Wrap-Up

If you were expecting an extending post about the trials and tribulations of peak season, you won’t find it this year. It was a relatively calm year. Great leadership made all of the difference. We’re now on to bigger and better things. One of those...

A New Way of Writing

I am writing this using Ulysses. The program has been around for a very long time but I’ve only just got around to trying it out. It is now a part of Setapp so I didn’t have to spend the money. So far, I like...

Last Day of July 2020

##This is the last day of the month. It is sad from the viewpoint of summer coming to an end in a month or so. I. Love. Summer.

Inner Monologue

Me: What are you thinking about eating for lunch today. Me:… Me: Pool. Me:… Me: Excellent choice sir. (voice of a butler)

Happy Labor Day!

The day we celebrate working by NOT working. Except me. I have to work. Poop.

Better Uses for Lottery Money

Instead of a lottery with this much money to be given away… How about we use the money to help the homeless, fix our infrastructure, provide free internet to everyone, reduce taxes, and so on and so forth? Just another case of me looking at...

Yeah Instagram — About That…

Yeah. No. Not really having trouble logging in because I am not trying to. But thanks for noticing something that I am definitely NOT doing. Go. Away.

Flying Taxi or Whatever

Not really excited about something that doesn’t exist but I guess Engadget needs click bait. How about you do stories on stuff that actually exists? I have an idea about a solar powered sex doll but you don’t see me writing about it. No. Mentioning...
