PLEASE RE-POST

Please post these pics wherever you can. Let’s call a turd a turd. This kid is doing exactly what shit-head asshole bullies have been doing since they were doing it to me in High School and well before that. To call this anything but blatant bullying is lie. I hope to meet this useless piece oh shit one day – I have a lot of things saved up for him.

Instagram, Facebook, Twitter – wherever – Please let’s call this worthless rotten kid exactly what he is. After that, we can talk about forgiveness….LOL (SMILE)

Hey, Melania – WHERE ARE YOU? I thought bullying was your thing? REMEMBER? Did anybody translate this for her? Is this shithead really “Being Best?” – or whatever you called it???

New Evidence for the Strange Idea that the Universe Is a Hologram

One of the great mysteries of modern cosmology is how our universe can be so thermally uniform—the vast cosmos is filled with the lingering heat of the Big Bang. Over time, it has cooled to a few degrees above absolute zero, but it can still be seen in the faint glow of microwave radiation, known as the cosmic microwave background. In any direction we look, the temperature of this cosmic background is basically the same, varying by only tiny amounts. But according to the standard “cold dark matter” model of cosmology, there wasn’t enough time for hotter and cooler regions of the early universe to even out. Even today we would expect parts of the cosmic background to be much warmer than others, but that isn’t what we observe.

One solution to this cosmological problem is known as early inflation. If the observable universe was extremely tiny in its earliest moments, it could have reached a uniform temperature very quickly. Afterwards, the theory says, the universe underwent a brief period of rapid expansion, eventually leading to the universe we observe today. We don’t have any direct evidence for early cosmic inflation, but because it would solve several issues in cosmology, it is a widely supported idea.

Recently, a team of astronomers looked at data from the Planck satellite, which gathered the most accurate measurements of the cosmic background thus far. They wanted to compare fluctuations across vast regions of the sky, known as low multipole moments, with the predictions of the standard cosmological model and a model that’s somewhat stranger, a holographic one. What if everything around you, from the distant stars to your very hands, were a hologram? Like Plato’s cave, our world of solid objects and three-dimensional space would simply be a shadow of a two-dimensional reality. On the human scale a holographic universe would be indistinguishable from the reality we expect, but on a cosmic scale there could be subtle differences we might be able to detect.  

In the holographic view of cosmology, early inflation is driven by interactions of the quantum field, which would slightly change the appearance of the cosmic microwave background. This is particularly true for low multipole moments, and this difference makes it possible, at least in principle, to prove that the holographic principle is true. In their paper, published last month in Physical Review Letters, the team report the holographic model fitting the Planck satellite data slightly better than the standard model. The results don’t prove the universe is holographic, but they are consistent with a holographic model.  

The idea that our universe might be holographic comes from string theory. Although string theory hasn’t been proven experimentally, its mathematical structure has an elegance and power that makes it appealing as a theoretical model. The holographic principle in string theory is just such an example. In its broadest form, the holographic principle states that anything you can know about a particular volume of space can be learned by looking at the surface enclosing the volume. Just as a hologram can contain a three-dimensional image within a sheet of glass or plastic, the universe could contain its vast volume within a surface.

For example, imagine a road 10 miles long that is “contained” by a start line and a finish line.  Suppose the speed limit on this road is 60 miles per hour, and we want to know if a car has been speeding. One way to do this is to watch a car travel the whole length of the road, measuring its speed the whole time. But another way is to simply measure when a car crosses the start line and finish line. At a speed of 60 miles per hour, a car travels a mile a minute, so if the time between start and finish is less than 10 minutes, we know the car was speeding.

If the holographic principle is true, then the universe can be viewed in two different ways: one of space and volume as we intuitively experience it, and one of a “surface” with one less dimension. This holographic duality is mathematically powerful because some laws of physics can be much easier to work with in one view than the other.

The structure of our universe is driven by the constant pull of gravity between stars and galaxies. In the present era, gravity is weak compared to other forces, and is described as a gravitational field in general relativity. In the dual holographic view, gravity is described as a quantum field that can interact strongly with mass. Since it is easier to calculate weak interactions than strong ones, the general relativity approach is more useful. However, in the early moments of cosmic time, when the universe was hot and dense, the gravitational fields of relativity were strong, so quantum fields of the holographic view might be easier to deal with.

The fact that both the standard and holographic models can account for early inflation supports the idea that the holographic principle applies to our universe. Cosmic inflation remains a mystery, but by viewing the universe as a hologram we might just be able to solve it.

Can You Still Feel It?

O

One question: What happened to the New Age that we danced and meditated and held Hands Across America for? “Where is the love?” said Roberta and Donny and me, right now?

¿Dondé esta el amor, gente?

I understand that an “age” is about 2160 years. So “The New Age” of the mid Eighties that we ushered in with such sincere intentions for global peace and harmony should still be in full effect? N’est pas? Instead of unity, peace and understanding, we have racism raging, hate and violence expanding and (by the way) we are at FULL BLOWN WAR!! – the longest war in American history in fact and nobody even remembers or seems to acknowledge it! AFGHANISTAN – It’s more than a knitted throw. You should look into it.There’s a lot of murdering and child killing and corruption. Seriously, it’s even worse than MASH. But my beef with the entire earth right now, here today is, this is not what was supposed to be happening in 2019! By now “all the colors of the world should be lovin’ each other wholeheartedly” – remember? …from the video right up there? Those are the lyrics, folks, okay???

There’s only one possible solution to re-ignite the loving energies of that old New Age that our struggling planet so desperately needs again….A HANDS ACROSS AMERICA RE-DO!!!! YAAAASSSSS!!!!!! Bring it back in 2020! (OMG I just realised that next year will be sharing it’s name with Hugh Downs television vehicle. this is wrong on many levels)

And you can bet your ass I would be there AGAIN for it. When I remember Hands Across America I remember two things; being way too overly excited about the whole thing, and Lesley Chilkes singing at the top of her lungs out there along the West Side Highway on that gorgeous sunny day. Hey, we tried, we really did. So…who’s with me on this Hands2 project? Can I see a show of hands for Hands2 please? – Can we take it all the way around the world somehow? Does anybody have Richard Branson’s cell # ??? Anybody???? No??? Elon Musk’s land line….anybody???? No???? Okaaaayyyy……how about Hands Across 14th Street? maybe bringing it down could work? -No? no.

Well, looks we’re out of time for our first meeting. Great work, guys. I’m feeling this. Email me with your ideas and I’ll see you back here for our next meeting which is…let’s see…January 7th, 2051. Cool!

love you guys.

Hands2..think about it…we need ideas…sooooo, you know, ask other people for some and email me – or text me. LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!

be safe…okay? safe home everybody. Great job today. Great meeting.. WE GOT THIS!!!!!

BYEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Is That Lady OK?

Christy Minstrel sent this disturbing photo to me last night and although I wasn’t upset by it at first, I think it’s fair to say that this photo of B. Davis may quite possibly posses a very powerful and arresting un-named form of mental magnetism. PLEASE – for your own sake and for the sake of your friends and families,

DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY INTO HER EYES!

Personally, I was stuck on the uni-lip for most of the morning and by lunch I was onto the kid leather glove. Unfortunately, I learned about the hypnotic negative effect of this photo after I looked directly into those Bette Davis eyes. As I felt my own will draining out of me like an opened vein, I knew then that Kim Carnes was much more than an AM top forty fad. The lady was now singing my life with her song ( scratch that – wrong song.) Anyway, I guess it must have been a few hours later that I even realized those eyes had rolled me like dice. I was bruised and hungry and I had peed myself , (possibly more than once), yet still I couldn’t escape those eyes…those Bette Davis Eyes. I’m very far away from home now...Mommy? Bette?

For God’s sake, readers! Don’t make the same mistake I did! Click away while you still have the strength to swipe! Save yourselves!

( later this evening ) I am blogging this from a very lovely padded cell somewhere and I have been restrained by three very nice men and I am wearing a 1937 model canvas straight jacket (which fits like a glove!) … a glove????   Did I say a glove?  A KID LEATHER GLOVE MAYBE?????  AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!   NURSE!   NURSE!!!

( An injection is administered )

Im sorry. I’m very sorry. I feel better now, I really do… I guess I am just feeling overwhelmed by that picture of that woman…and being strapped in….I mean “restrained,” : ) can be very difficult for someone with frequent grand gestures….and….Im hugging myself. Im just hugging myself…

(delusional mumbling)

(crying now) It’s just so god dammed hard to keep blogging when you are typing everything with a single toe….behind your back…in a padded cell….on the floor…and it’s just so cold in here….why is it so freaking cold in here?…I sure could use a mink stole right about now. …a what??? A mink stole? Do I mean a mink stole exactly like the one IN THAT DAMMED DAVIS PIC? DO I BILLY?   AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!      NURSE!!!!    NURSE!!!!!  Dammit! She is always on her break!!!!

(overcome with a sudden calmness) – How silly of me…I know exactly how to handle that cut-rate kodachrome glossy. (giggling)  It’s really so simple…

( Baby Jane voice ) ….and I will NEHVAH have tooo see that horrible pikcha again!

(thud)



A Song For Today – “To Each His Own” – Faith, Hope And Charity

Sing it out loud when you hear all that hate speech and ignunt talkin that have become so commonplace in our troubled country. Why don’t cha, why don’t cha? …and yes, this classic contains Disco Glockenspiel.  There is nothing better except maybe Disco Chimes. toot toot    

“Kanye West is no victim; he’s a fully-grown, ignorant man-child”

Less than a month before the midterm elections, a man who has admitted to being a proud non-reader of books and nonvoter met with Donald Trump at the White House. Yep, after faithfully stroking the President’s ego, Kanye West finally got his narcissistic wish.

Clay Cane

Clay CaneThe meeting between Trump and Kanye was high-octane foolishness and one of many debasing moments in Trump’s circus-like White House. As people are fighting for their lives while enduring Hurricane Michael, which should have been the focus this week, we instead have two fame-obsessed, thin-skinned celebrities gushing over each other.There are claims that Trump is exploiting Kanye West, who has admitted to having mental health issues, by inviting the press to witness his gesticulating and f-bomb throwing in the Oval Office.While Trump is known for exploiting any and everything — even the September 11th terrorist attacks — Kanye West is no victim. Moreover, it is wildly offensive to conflate having mental health issues and displaying erratic behavior with being a willfully ignorant man-child, which is what Kanye West has become. Mental health struggles have nothing to with one’s political beliefs. In addition, a black celebrity worshipping a raging bigot is nothing new — simply revisit Sammy Davis Jr.’s history with President Richard Nixon.

This is a person who claimed Malcolm X wasn’t relatable, said Harriet Tubman shouldn’t be on the $20 bill, and compared himself to Nat Turner. The true victims are thousands of children who were torn away from their parents at the border and confined to penned areas. The victims are the black and brown people who will once again see an unconstitutional abuse of power if stop-and-frisk is reinstated and expanded, as Trump has expressed the desire to do. The victims are women who are not believed when they come forward with sexual assault, but are mocked — even by their President.

Reporter: Kanye visit was odd, sad

Reporter: Kanye visit was odd, sad 03:22In one of the many awkward moments from Kanye’s ten-minute monologue in the Oval Office, the “Gold Digger” rapper defended his “Make America Great Again” hat. He claimed the red accessory gives him “power” and people tried to “scare” him into not wearing the hat. Hate certainly has power, which is a concept West apparently doesn’t understand in his quest to feel like Superman. Imagine if Germany had a slogan called “Make Germany Great Again” or a South African politician ranted “Make South Africa Great Again.” There would be rightful outrage. “Make America Great Again” is a coded version of “no coloreds allowed” signs. Trump fashioned the phrase to his purposes as a dog whistle to the worst part of his base. But Kanye doesn’t love or respect his identity enough to do his history. As Donna Brazile said on Twitter, Kanye “set us back 155 years.”

Dave Chappelle: I'm not mad at Kanye West

Dave Chappelle: I’m not mad at Kanye West 01:29If Kanye were a 41-year-old black man living on the south side of Chicago, he wouldn’t co-sign “Make America Great Again.” His bubble of fame, money, privilege and soaking in the Calabasas air with the Kardashian clan has afforded him the privilege to be proudly ignorant. He is largely immune to Trump’s dangerous policies. When it comes to Kanye meeting with Trump to discuss “the blacks” — Kanye, we don’t need you. No one needs you. We need resources, not an imaginary hero. Remember, the rapper has become a multimillionaire by creating art from black culture, but his behavior signals he clearly does not respect the culture in his “Make America Great Again” hat and “slavery is a choice” rants. Most importantly, if you are a rich, privileged celebrity who isn’t affected by the consequences of not voting, yours isn’t the voice we need trying to speak truth to power. Follow CNN Opinion

Because Trump is about to morph into a Category 5 if the so-called blue wave doesn’t sweep through on November 6.
