Twisted Outrages Of Invisible Friends in Texas

Texas has caused Feelings And then there is Texas...  So much has happened to the Rape State of Texas . It's gone from Lone Star to One star over the last couple of months. The myth of the Alamo has been laid out, and how that  sausage of myth got made into the Jim Crow South of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Which, with a dash of irony, points out some systemic troubles with Critical Race Theory.  Instead of cultural education, and understanding of historic issues, they are now building their own out-rage(d)ous fortune . But that's not all the Ape State has been up to these last couple of months. No, when Texas goes, it goes big. 

EV Living: Hands Free Laughing

Work is already begun on highway lanes and city streets which will charge your car as you drive.  Electric Vehicles. They are here and they are awesome. So, what's the hold up? Why aren't you in one? I had to give up driving, otherwise I'd be zipping around every day. But, what's your excuse? Actually, with the self driving modes, I might have one anyway.  Keywords: #EV #ElectricVehicles #WirelessCharging #ChargeWhileDriving #ChargingStations #WhatIsAhead 

Break the Blocks and Kick Your Muse

Writing was going good. Sentences flying from your fingers as you watched your story come to life around you. Half sight half dream your characters play out the scene and you watch and describe and take notation. The scene ends. You take a drink of coffee. The world focuses around you once more. And then... ...nothing. Not a thing comes to mind. The last scene was perfect, you had been building it, layer by layer for a week, but now... nothing. Your Muse has left the room, with a cheeky wiggle of distain. 

Religion and Science and the Space in Between

 With Religion you find a belief and then spend your days exploring and improving your faith in that belief. In Science, you find a belief and then spend your days trying to prove it wrong. ~ Glenn Hefley

Biden Losing His Mind and ... WAIT! There's More!

We are currently inside the grips of a pandemic that has been going on in the U.S. since January of 2020. Right now we are in the Delta phase , and heading toward a yet to be understood Mu phase .   Yesterday, ~500 people died in the state of Florida. The daily average is 350, a day. Not a week or a month. Every day .  These days most of them are young.

Framed in DEEP.

Really, he's right. We're never going to get this past the political panics and walls in time. You can tweet its Dems or Reps, but that's not helping. Tweet what one side or the other is DOING about it. https://t.co/uPfu9LtgWI — NeuroRomancer -- Author (@glennhefley) September 7, 2021

Hospital Bed Capacity -- Oklahoma

  Bed Capacity and usage in Oklahoma . Used this to partially verify a claim that gunshot victims were having to wait for attention because of the number of OD case from horse dewormer - a story which broke this morning -- perhaps you saw it. As far as capacity, well.. OK doesn't have many "hospitals" with ICUs.

Infrastructure (Ports and Rail)

And on top of All of THAT... infrastructure. Oh, yeah, we need that... This is the current view around the Port of Los Angeles. Most of the problem is that these ships ... these cargo ships are now twice the size they were 20 years ago. We haven't upgraded for 70 years, so these ships don't fit like they should. And once we unload them, we don't have the trains to take the cargo out of the docks -- or trucks. Some of these cargo ships have been floating out there for more than 3 months.

Science and Belief

  All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man’s life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom. ~ Albert Einstein This has always been a puzzle to me. The demand for separation between the spiritual grasp of the infinite and the physical exploration through the tools of science. At the present time, we literally know 0% of the universe and understand far less. Yet we will jump like a frog from a skillet and into war when these two appear to conflict, which -- if our understanding of the infinite is near enough to the mark to be useful at all --- is an impossibility of such magnitude, we're not even close enough in our error to be wrong. Those who do not feel that religion and science are compatible and in fact required by each other to exist, simply don't understand either well enough to argue the point.

Another Hyperloop Look

 This is getting exciting

Take the Hyperloop For Pizza in Chicago

  With this, we could meet in Chicago for pizza dinner, or go to a steakhouse in Kansas City -- all of us -- and still be home that night in time to get some sleep on a Thursday night. 

The Mandate on Vaccines

I think that people want to live. To remain healthy. If you are infected and you don't have symptoms, that doesn't mean you aren't damaged . Lungs, Brain, Heart. Vaccines help with that. I think Right-wing extremists, and to some extent even more mainstream R/media rely on financial support from companies selling nutritional supplements and miracle cures — and that financial support is arguably a significant factor pushing the right to become more extreme. Vaccines work. Don't get that twisted. They don't "Cure". They work. Besides that, it should be law. It's not hindering anyone's legal rights . Jacobson v Massachusetts says so. So do a lot of others. This isn't new. You are already mandated to vaccines. They don't even need to write the law really, except as a Call to Action. Be Better.  Stop Promoting Harm . From Jacobson v Mass The liberty secured by the Constitution of the United States does not import an absolute right in each pers
