Can't get no relief! Kermanshah cold, now that's gotta be cold!

Can't blame this inaction on DT.

There should be a blanket policy in effect to deal with things like this. And umbrellas might not hurt, either. Spam won't help...these are Muslims.

Can't really blame this on anyone but Mother.

The state of quantum flux
Nov 15, 2017 - 05:01am PT
While Searching for Sunshine

The hour was long behind me
When something I should have said
Was forgotten in the melee
And lost inside my head
It was too late to make changes
I couldn't turn back the hand of time
And you watched as my face turned red

I dreamed I went to the future
And I woke up in the past
In the world and all it's confusion
Though I thought it wouldn't last
When I actually woke up then
The dream wasn't real at all
As reality sped on enveloping fast

Now I'm waiting to see to the future
Through a world some have claimed is a fake
And my mind has been playing tricks on me
As the present reality shimmers and shakes
And everything swirls in the vortex
Is reality so unimportant?
Has cognizance become more than I can take?

I dreamed I went to the future
And I woke up in the past
In the world and all it's confusion
I truly thought it wouldn't last
But awake now as sure as this headache
I've nowhere to go but forward
Through what shadows reality casts

dude i know jerry.
i am jerry.
f*#king jerry.

what a character.

if he would crawl out from behind the wall paper
he'd be all like,

"don't just f*#king post echoes of what i said (sang!)

i was only trying to encourage the masses to come apart.

so please.

come apart."

because that's beautiful.

when together means trump.
and hate.
and greed.
and ignorance.

you. you person amongst many.

you have an obligation.
to exist.

so do so.
according to your whims.

please.

because this f*#king american society and maybe the world beyond american is only a whisper on the stage of existence.

i think, if i listen real close, even through the amplifiers,
you are saying,

"me. me. me. more for me. i'm scared. i'm hollow. i'm lazy."


no jerry would want us to write something on his thread like,

"life is chocolate, melted into a fluid sauce.
and we are all cookies. dipping. into
life. into the sauce.
dripping goo. and god eats us.
she eats our most sour; most inimate parts."

or perhaps,

"skate your ex-boyfriend."

yea. that's what i did.

the fool treated me poorly.

so i left. then he came calling.
you know, for booty.

so i responded. and met him.
and told him,

"get down on all fours."

he pictured boobies and dripping hoo-hoos.

but i did not bring those to him.
he is a jerk.

instead i skated up to him and popped my girl-ollie
and slid tail side upon his right love handle. and landed
my trick.a

girls are excellent. yes. we are.

and from another
Now and then I find your friend in the most likely and un-likely places

oh. you've the mentality.

that is systemic.
you are a thoroughbred dirtbag.

so, regardless of the environmental vehicle that surrounds you (job or living your vehicle; a million bucks or fifty cents,)
you probably will never stray from destitute.

you can manage your lifestyle.
go ahead and try.

everything will come undone
during its remodel.

so chaos and structure will fornicate
in your heart.

will be borne: your life.

work and money lubricate the pitch.

like sweat and blood.
keep your focus, use your feet.

stand up.

the next hold might be a beautiful person's heart.

so you grab it; make children.

everyone thinks children impede your stride.
not true.

they resound your genetics.

they smile back at you.
they challenge you.

but you are you. and from what i read,
you are stout, stubborn, and committed upon folly.

the children, if you 'accidentally' make them, adorn
your journey.

believe me.

for i have drug myself through this existence, uphill all
the way; and i've nothing but good things to say

do this.

go down to the local thrift store.
buy the cheapest working radio
you can find. make sure that it
is off brand. like, Lennox, or something.

it's ok if it has a broken antenna. just don't cut
yourself on its severed edge (extremely high unit-pressure: thats pounds per square inch)

now plug it. on a cloudy and / or rainy day.

spin the knob until you find some classical music.

all college towns have a public radio station.

once the reception is optimized. stand back and contemplate.

mentally entertain big thoughts; specifically in regards to
your career. and life paths. etc.

you will notice that you create sonic disturbance with each thought.

the cheap radio will go in and out of tune as you
churn mind-butter.

the thoughts and plans and ideas that send beethove into irrefutible wavelengths, avoid.

the others; the warrior thoughts. the ones that harmonize with ludwig,
employ. they will deliver you where you ought to be.

I wager that I'm not alone in the sneakin' suspicion that its our one time resident genius, Weedgus?
long in the truth, one only and thnx be for 'im,
if it ism? your bet is as good as any That mahn from Strawberry?

News of the Finlanders Part 2

The Top500 list of supercomputers globally was published again this month, and one of the most interesting tidbits is that every single one of them runs Linux.

However, the U.S. has traditionally had the most supercomputers on the list on a per country basis, but that has changed: China now has the most supercomputers on the list. Six months ago, when the last version of the Top500 list was published, the U.S. had 169 systems and China had 160. The U.S. now sits in second place with 143 systems on the Top500 while China is at the top with 202 Top500 supercomputers.

Why are there two floor tiles open? Rumour is a mouse hunt was in progress.

That graph is not up to date. It only takes us to 2015.

One would think that with supercomputers upgrading of the data would be, like, automatic.

And speaking of automats, that is what it looks like, sorta, in the last pic.

Has to be some sort of trick, the things that get posted by and by bring out the way this campfire rages then cools.

Im a fan of many of the best skilled climbers that crimp'd and clamp'd on from the 50s to the 90s, and on a bit.

Once the in side game was established , the strength of the average climber out stripped, out paced the learning curve ,

so dashing the hopes of many that the history of the greatest
-who lived full lives away from climbing-
not full time or paid to climb those
climbers from the older days would be heralded as what it was supposed to be;
a soul, self exploration of the meaning of all things

Life and the great beyond where thus more easily except-able
To ME



ugh some weird stuff i was making an attempt to edit, correct the mess and it went back to what id removed..

It is never to not nor to never

You will never not be called not clever

And silly pedants split hairs
Now and again we all split an infinitive

The cold never lifted ,

Maybe I should'a brought some white stuff?


By way of explanation; I went to take pictures of the stream as it cuts thru a rocky gultch, that gets late afternoon sun. The steep approach was verglassed, so wearing sneakers with a 'Tread'd blue plastic-y' sole, I chose to go here instead. I'm never able to resit - should never have pulled up, it was clearly wet.
