Yeah.  So as I was saying,  um, er, heh… well crap.  Lost my train of thought due to random synapses firing out of sequence while contemplating all the awesome contained in that one image. So let’s balance that awesome with some non-awesome.

DoD’s Walter von Dichische spotted a link that features a couple of jawdropping examples of twittering brilliance:

Mom, Gramma, FLOW, and a couple of teenage twits — Put them all together and they spell The Overnight Open Thread.

    So today at lunch from the Creole food truck, I got a “Peacemaker” -- it’s an oyster Po’boy with bacon and cheese (plus peppers, lettuce, pickles…). It was pretty dang good… I’ve now tried everything on his menu… I think next week I will go back to having the shrimp and grits…

    More people do tend to stop, anyway.

    The layout of the show last week was actually really good, which surprised me. It was in what amounts to a basketball arena. All the guns were on the floor, and they stuck some of us who weren’t selling guns up on the concourse, instead.

    I thought it was going to suck, until I realized that the way it was set up, everyone had to walk past my table to get out.

    by decertifying the union, they are telling the owners to lock them out as there is no one to bargain for them at the table.

    no nflpa, no collective bargaining authority, its a dare to lock out.

    so, if there is a lockout as opposed to a strike…see the difference?

    from espn

    By dissolving and announcing it no longer represents the players in collective bargaining, the union cleared the way for class-action lawsuits against the NFL, which opted out of the CBA in 2008. The antitrust suit — forever to be known as Brady et al vs. National Football League et al — attacked the league’s policies on the draft, salary cap and free-agent restrictions such as franchise-player tags.

    Invoking the Sherman Act, a federal antitrust statute from 1890 that limits monopolies and restrictions on commerce, the players are seeking triple the amount of damages they’ve incurred. That means the stakes here could be in the hundreds of millions.

    I don’t doubt it for one second. I ended up as Master Electrician in college because as a professional musician I had a considerable amount of experience, but I definitely saw a lot of people who totally bullshitted their way into stage hand positions.

    Their is very little difference between setting up sound and lighting for a band and for a stage production, once you have done enough of it, it’s pretty easy to spot the people who really haven’t done what they claim they have done.

    When I was an instructor at Ft McClellan, they were always trying to get people to volunteer to work at the CDTF. The extra money (hazardous duty pay) wasn’t enough to make me want to spend 4 hours a day at MOPP 4.

    They had a special exemption in the chemical weapons treaty allowing them to produce 1 liter per month of VX on site.

    Actually, no. Pellham Range was transferred to the Alabama Guard, but the main post area is still under federal control. DOJ uses the CDTF for training the FBI and various other agencies.

    I don’t put a lot of weight on Mythbusters, but an undersea methane eruption is possible.

    Yeah, but the really spooky part is that some folks think that man made CO2 has something to do with it. Frothing gas bubbles indeed!

    Agent Orange is dioxin. That’s a little different.

  187. 187 | March 12, 2011 1:59 am

    DO NOT READ IF YOU WANT TO GO SEE BATTLE: LOS ANGELES

    What can I say about a movie that is like having sex with a beautiful woman who keeps biting you and asks if you like that?

    First it makes this pathetic attempt at character building, O, for about 5 minutes, then it is off with your Platoon of marines to fight aliens who for some reason are destroying earth’s cities, because…wait for it…they fuel themselves on liquid sea water. Apparently some scientific wag tells us the only place in the whole universe with liquid salt water. Yep, billions of galaxies, each with billions of stars, and the only place to find cheap sea-water is EARTH!

    OK, I can get by that, but then you have the heavy-handed musical score trying to tug at your emotions, it intrudes though the whole movie, much like your last psycho girlfriend keeps showing up each time you go on a date.

    Then the aliens completly outclass our military, but this Platoon discovers their weakness and blows up their giant communications thingy, hidden O so subtely in LA’s sewer system, as the heroine played by Michele Rodriguez of (Fast & Furious fame) figures out as the Air Force intelligence officer who somehow survived an alien attack. Now Michelle really only has one purpose in any movie, she has a body to die for, but in this movie that body is totally hidden by shapeless military fatigues, and a gigantic (military intelligence ?) helmet.

    Though all this is the battle scenes shown with the really, really cool Blair Witch Project…herkey-jerkey handheld cam, until your eyes and mind scream out for a John Ford shot of Monument Valley using rails and a stabilized camera platform. I mean after ten minutes you want to stab out your eyes, or find the Director and stab his eyes out.

    But worse than all of this is the writing. Here is a sample: After figuring out how to take out their giant sewer-hidden communication-thingy, that controls the alien version of Predator Drones fighting through salt-water drinking aliens…who in 24 hours have noticeably lowered the oceans levels…they must have been THIRSTY! Well the marines and Michelle in her shapeless fatigues MUST hang out for 3 minutes to laser illuminate the giant sewer-hidden communication thingy, because for some reason our military is too retarded to actually see this 20 story tall with a mass of twenty Aircraft Carriers giant sewer-hidden communication thingy with more antennae sticking up out of sewer than a 1959 trailer park in Little Rock Arkansas.

    Well they blow that up like Randy Quaid blew up the giant alien starcraft thingy in Independence Day. And so they go back to where the military have been hanging out since they got their ass kicked, out in the Mojave Desert…just like the military did in Independence Day, when they got THEIR ass kicked, and went and hung out in the Mojave Desert. And so after probably just saving the entire human race and our precious treasure trove of salt water and Epsom Salt, the commanding officer tells the Platoon Leader guy, to have some breakfast…you earned it!” Wow! Imagine the miserable award if you simpley saved a child or something…probably the commanding officer would tell you to eat a fungus-covered marshmallow…because, by God, you earned it!

    This was like a movie where the Director must have been thinking that to understand digestion, we must be shown close up shots of mouths masticating greasy food. Hollywood is just getting worse and worse. Plus I sat next to some guy that kept eating from a HUGE bag of popcorn, with such ferocity, I thought maybe he had been starving for a couple of weeks before he came to see this movie.

    I used to work in the Nuclear industry back in the early 80′s. I find that map very hard to believe, but I don’t remember or know enough to say definitively that it is impossible. My guess is that it’s off by at least a factor of 10, probably 100, which is most likely why it was yanked from Drudge and Rueters. And what it indicates would genuinely be a worst case scenario. I think the reactor would pretty much have to totally explode for something like that to happen.

    I think you got that backwards, but yea… The Fifth Column Treasonous Media will with the help of the Greenie Enviro-nazi’s ensure no new nuclear reactors are built for probably more than a 100 years.

    So, no nuclear power, no petroleum, no coal. I’d say that A) the US is totally and royally screwed, and B) Obama pretty much just lost any prayer of getting re-elected. If the Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia falls to revolution as some are predicting I’m guessing $10.00 a gallon gasoline within a week or to of it’s fall.

    Yea, I know what you mean, but since we still produce about half of the oil we need there will be gas available, but you can bet it will be rationed. I suspect if and when that happens you will see the gas stations go purely to plastic, because otherwise the amounts of currency on hand will be an invitation to armed robbery by desperate people. $250.00 to $300.00 dollars to fill your gas tank is going to put a serious hurt on just about everybody.

    5 family members murdered by terrorist in Itamar settlement

    Five family members were found murdered in their residence in the West Bank Itamar settlement Friday overnight, after a suspected terrorist broke and entered the house and stabbed the five to death. Two children managed to escape and survived the attack, Army Radio reported.

    A Magen David Adom team that arrived at the scene at 1:00 a.m. announced a couple, their 11-year old child, 3-year-old toddler, and a one-month baby girl dead from stabbing wounds.

  217. 217 | March 12, 2011 5:38 am

    Well, the reactor didn’t explode -- a pressure build-up seems to have blown the outer containment structure. This is very much not good, but it’s not a nuclear explosion. That video clearly shows a dust cloud from the collapse of a substantial concrete structure, not any smoke or worse.

    The situation is bad, but let’s not make it more than it is.

    If they can’t restore moderation/cooling and get an actual melt-down, the situation will be dire, but still not any sort of nuclear explosion.

    I will agree, however, that this will energize (so to speak) the anti-nuke power crowd here at home and make expedited construction of much-needed facilities in this country all the less likely.

    As an aside, this disaster in Japan is an opportunity for the PRC to earn serious good karma points to jump in with both feet to help. But will they see and act on that? The US already has a lot of the Pacific fleet steaming for Japan (as is right and proper, IMHO.)

    Have you ever been inside a nuclear containment building? I have, I worked at San Onofre for two years back in 79 and 80. Nuclear reactors do not go super critical like nuclear weapons. What happens is that when the coolant lever get’s low enough the core heat’s up to around 3000 degree’s C. That causes the remaining coolant to flash over into superheated steam.

    When the coolant flashes over to super heated steam you get a steam boiler explosion. The Core itself doesn’t go flying, the pipe’s rupture and the steam blows the containment structure apart. At 3000 degree’s C the core is semi-molten, more in a plastic state than anything else. The super heated steam dissolves parts of the core and expels it as radioactive debris.

    What the video I posted at #200 shows is either a hydrogen explosion (my best guess actually) or a coolant flash over. One of the side effect’s of the core exceeding around 1500 C is the separation of hydrogen from water. This is what the gases they were trying to bleed off is. Those gases are heavily contaminated with radioactive material, but not as bad as they would be in a coolant flash over.

    Those outer containment structure are usually five feet thick steel reinforced concrete, they are designed to fall down on the reactor and seal it off from the outside world. It takes an amazing amount of power to explode one out from the inside.

    Dont be mistaken, what happened there was really really really bad, so bad that the Japanese government has made the mandatory evacuation zone 20 kilometers now.

    The radio news is basically full of shit. Until they can get someone in there to physically inspect the damage it is impossible to say exactly what has happened. Like I told MikeC, I worked at a nuclear reactor, I know how they are built, how they operate and what happens when something goes wrong. I was a Health Physic’s Technician at San Onofre for 2 years.

    This much I can tell you from experience, they people who genuinely know what the situation is at that plant, they are not telling the reporters diddly squat. The expert’s talking to the talking head’s are doing their damnedest to down play what ever might have happened. They are doing that in an attempt to prevent panic because basically nobody really knows for sure what exactly has happened yet.

    @ doriangrey:

    10.40am: A nuclear expert says the a blast at Fukushima plant No 1 was caused by a hydrogen explosion.

    Ian Hore-Lacy, of nuclear industry body the World Nuclear Association, also said the blast may not necessarily have caused a radiation leak.

    He told Reuters:

    “It is obviously an hydrogen explosion … due to hydrogen igniting. If the hydrogen has ignited, then it is gone, it doesn’t pose any further threat. As far as we know there is no particular danger from radiation leaks. There may be, but we don’t know that. There is no reason to suppose that there must be because of that.”

    232 | March 12, 2011 6:30 am

    @ doriangrey:
    Same point I was making. The core didn’t “explode” as allahpundit would have you believe. Hydrogen explodes yet it is unlikely the hydrogen explosion damaged/”exploded” the core; it would have to implode it first


  233. 233 | March 12, 2011 6:30 am

    @ doriangrey:

    Nope, never been inside a nuke plant -- not my particular segment of the energy industry. So I learned something new here today. That’s always a good start to a day.

    Hydrogen explosion, eh ? Okay, I do understand the basic physics involved and that seems a reasonable explantion.

    Sounds like we need to be airlifting some inspection remote-control devices over there ASAP so they can get a look inside. Of course, they may already have better ones than ours, Japan being very big on that sort of thing.

    In any case, a damned mess. IMHO, we need to get them any assistance they need immediately.

    Gas bubbles in water are a known and documented threat to shipping in shelf areas. Way back when, I worked on an area in the Gulf of Alaska where this sort of thing posed a very real threat to seismic data acquisition vessels. You could correllate the gas bubbles in the observer notes to the faulting seen in the acquired seismic data. Just as serious and as real as a heart attack.

    @ Macker:

    Not comparable, IMHO (although Dorien can chime in on that.)

    Chernobyl was a graphite-moderated reactor not much more advanced than the Chicago Pile, and caught fire and burned. These are light-water reactors with moderator rods -- a completely different design.

    Not good, though.

    Good Morning Blogmocracy! Today is another glorious day in the Reign of Emperor Barack Hussein I, Pasha of the United States and Defender of the Faith Ummah! There are 605 Days Until the 2012 Presidential Election! The top story of the day is still the Japanese quake. I heard last night that this was the biggest quake in some 12000 years for this region. That may give some heart to people who are seeing the hopes of a nuclear future go down the drink. This was a 1 in 1000 year event. We will learn from it, and nuclear plants will be even safer as a result. Nuke power is safe, not that that will stop the Green-Red alliancve from being against American nuke plants (the Iranians, OTOH, have a right to nuke power, don’t you know…) In other news, the Arab leaders discuss a no-fly zone over Libya. Hey, if they can enforce it, more power to them. Saudi Arabia has some F-15s we sold them. Put them to good use. That doesn;’t mean we should be sticking our nose in where there is no compelling US interest. Finbally, this will piss you off. Just when you thought the New Black Paqnthers couldn’t get anoy lower, they are justifying the gang-rape of an 11-year old girl. Girl is hispanic. Guess the race of the rapists. Remin me why Eric Holder is still Attourney General after protecting these motherfuckers from Prosecution? :roll:

    @ Macker:
    Chernobyl had lot of graphite in its core that was burning and exposed after the accident. Chernobyl also used U-238, which uses fast neutrons to initiate fission. That means when that with no water in the core it could start up again. The Japanese reactor is probably a U-235 plant that requires slow neutrons and without water to slow the neutrons down there is no fission of uranium.
    The heat is coming from the secondary nuclear reactions that happen after uranium fissions and require some time to completely stop.
    The core is probably no longer useable but I can’t see how it could be anything like Chernobyl.
    A 20 Km evacuation zone is pretty small.
    The Japanese seem to be pretty quick to release information but like Doriengrey, they aren’t speculating.


  243. 243 | March 12, 2011 8:38 am

    Since 911 human history has been put on steroids. Biblically we are seeing the time-compression prophesied for the time just before the return of Christ. Since the last Iraq war…the historical “Head of Gold,” of Daniel’s statue was destroyed.

    Completing a cycle of the destruction of Nebuchadnezzar’s statue characterizing human civilization from that King’s time to our time. The destruction of that statue began at WWI, and ended in the second Iraq war.

    The result is the destruction of nation-states, with some bleed-over of time, mostly a sort of Noah’s Ark moment for humanity to transition from an age that was, to a new age, to the Kingdom of God. We are seeing all nations being destroyed, from some right now it is the financial structure, for others the political structure, and for others, both political and economic destruction.

    And for some simply destruction via nature. Why? Because our governments, our economies are evil in the sight of God, and His patience has run out, just like in the days of Noah. This will just continue in intensity and frequency until men are humbled and they will only be able to turn to God for help. Or turn from Him one last time for dam(nation). This country even elected a man specifically designed to damn America, trained in a false church to do EXACTLY as he is doing. Fools voted him in, fools keep him in power. Obama is a man much like the ancient Nebuchadnezzar, stupid in his arrogance not knowing God is and has always been in charge.

    Nebuchadnezzar was driven mad until he admitted that God alone rules, men are just leased authority from God to fulfill His purposes. Even Bush was set on a course by God to destroy Saddam…the stand-in for the “Head of Gold.” That the cycle might be complete, and judgement would be given to the righteous, who are righteous because of their faith.
