Recently, it came to my attention that a fellow nerd has gone to the trouble of calculating some statistics behind MegaShark's dramatically captured attack on an airplane. Here's a small version of his info-graphic (I encourage you to visit the blog itself as it has additional details):
I'm hoping to start a fairly regular set of postings on Quantum Mechanics and/or other weird science that fascinates me. However, if there's no interest (after all, it's outside the normal scope of all things dagblog), I'll drop it. With that in mind, I thought I'd start with an overview of Quantum Mechanics, talk about how it's really weird, and give my interpretation of it, all without delving into math or jargon. Well, I'll try to at least save any such delving for the comments section.
For those who find QM confusing, I offer up these quotes:
A good reminder of the options available and not taken. Bush pioneered the no-stimulus recovery in 2001, to bad (but Republican) result. Obama largely played along to GOP TARP plans in 2009, including lowball public assistence and austerity. Hillary's wrapping herself around Obama as she must, but we know she's not a kumbaya idealist. Will she learn the real lessons behind the rhetoric - both in economic and foreign policy? How will/would she govern during the next crisis? I think it's a given she's not out to be either Bill or Barry's 3rd term. Will she find her own 3rd Way? Will she pull out her Saul Alinsky? Will she stay content with the 1 big idea per year mode? Or will she open up multiple fronts like FDR? We'll likely see come January.
Thought I'd file this under the endless litany of who wears the MLK mantle, what would Jesus do and if FDR came back, would he drive a hybrid?
Of course MLK wouldn't be a woman, but he might friend one. Curiously he could be white. But possibly gay.
Would he have a biting sense of humor, or still rely on preacher's prose and metaphor?
Almost left out LBJ - would he eat a lo-carb diet and carpool? Post pictures of abused dogs to Facebook or Pinterest? Things do change as they stau the same. Perhaps Vietnam by drone wouldn't look the same.
