Clown World is built upon a series of intellectual pillars that range from Darwin, Diderot, and Freud to Einstein, Keynes, and Foucault. The first thing that rapidly becomes apparent when one regards them as a set is first, that they are all frauds.

So, you’ve got the Top 10 slots on your local accountability list all filled in, right? And the Next 10? Rest assured they do. — Raconteur Report: Much Honest. No Doubtings.The World Is Running Out of Sand Sand covers so much of the earth’s surface that shipping it across borders—even uncontested ones—seems extreme. But sand isn’t just sand, it turns out. In the industrial world, it’s “aggregate,” a category that includes gravel, crushed stone, and various recycled materials. Natural aggregate is the world’s second most heavily exploited natural resource, after water, and for many uses the right kind is scarce or inaccessible. In 2014, the United Nations Environment Programme published a report titled “Sand, Rarer Than One Thinks,” which concluded that the mining of sand and gravel “greatly exceeds natural renewal rates” and that “the amount being mined is increasing exponentially, mainly as a result of rapid economic growth in Asia.”

Goldbeaters skin is made from part of a cows intestine, the outer layer of the caecum to be precise, which is also called blind gut or even the appendix. The outer layers of the blind-gut are carefully stripped off into sheets of around 60 cm in length by 25 cm in width. They are then cleaned of fat by dipping the gut in a mild alkaline solution and scraped with a blunt knife. The cleaned gut is then stretched over a frame. The living tissues in the sheets grew together making a seamless and Hydrogen proof join. As well as being impermeable to Hydrogen it was also light and very strong, making it the perfect gasbag material!

“It’s impossible to envision a world without race for the Democratic Party.

The Nose Knows Humans navigate with stereo olfaction | By using optic flow that captures the pattern of apparent motion of surface elements in a visual scene, we demonstrate through formal psychophysical testing that a moderate binaral concentration disparity of a nontrigeminal odorant consistently biases recipients’ perceived direction of self-motion toward the higher-concentration side, despite that they cannot verbalize which nostril smells a stronger odor. We further show that the effect depends on the internostril ratio of odor concentrations and not the numeric difference in concentration between the two nostrils.

The clean meat industry is racing to ditch its reliance on foetal blood | Their goal? To produce meat without needing to kill a single animal, cutting out the cruelty and huge environmental costs associated with meat production today. But the clean meat industry has a messy problem. None of the major players have managed to grow meat without using animal serum – a blend of growth-inducing proteins usually made from the blood of animals. The most popular is foetal bovine serum (FBS), a mixture harvested from the blood of foetuses excised from pregnant cows slaughtered in the dairy or meat industries.

The fascinating reason why clowns paint their faces on eggs – The earliest egg registry dates to 1946, when Stan Bult – a chemist by trade, though not a clown himself – began painting the faces of prominent circus clowns on eggs as a hobby. Eventually, the practice grew into what one contemporary publication called “a file of faces so that clowns can avoid copying one another”.

How a janitor at Frito-Lay invented Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Richard Montaz went from cleaning toilets to being one of the most respected execs in the food industry. A few weeks later, Montañez stopped at a local vendor to get some elote, a Mexican “street corn” doused in chili powder, salt, cotija, lime juice, and crema fresca. Cob in hand, a “revelation” struck: What if I put chili on a Cheeto?

Traveling in COVID Times | What was weird, however, was the cold emptiness of the lobby, with minimal furniture — basically a handful of high-top bar tables and chairs — and no lingering people. The second floor, which probably gave access to the pool and hot tubs I could see from my room, was closed. One of the restaurants was closed; another had opened for the first time in a year that very day. Room service was not available. Even that notebook full of hotel information, menus, and area details was missing. Stickers on the elevator floor instructed you to stand in a corner if you were riding with someone else. Yet the airport shuttle service was completely packed in the morning with so many people waiting that I actually walked a block away to the Marriott to get on their shuttle, which quickly filled up. I guess social distancing only applies when it’s convenient.

“Cathedrals are unfinished. It is just the nature of the beast,” explains my tour guide. It is January, and we are walking down the soaring nave of St. John the Divine, in Morningside Heights, New York City. The cathedral may be the fifth-largest church in the world, but, 127 years after it first broke ground, it is not yet complete. The columns in the crossing are rough-hewn granite, naked of the carved limestone that adorns the rest of the interior. From the outside, the tallest part of the facade is a clearly incomplete tower. The niches on one of the three front portals are empty. Like a torso without arms, the cathedral is still missing both transepts. Scaffolding clambers up the soaring pillars. The soft whine of drills echoes against the 124-foot-tall vaults.

“The man of the system  seems to imagine that he can arrange the different members of a great society with as much ease as the hand arranges the different pieces upon a chess-board. He does not consider that the pieces upon the chess-board have no other principle of motion besides that which the hand impresses upon them; but that, in the great chess-board of human society, every single piece has a principle of motion of its own, altogether different from that which the legislature might chuse to impress upon it. ” — Adam Smith, The Theory of Moral Sentiments

    “I saw what I saw
    when I saw it.”
    Lou Costello

  • PA Cat April 6, 2021, 3:49 PM

    A follow-up to the “Traveling in COVID Times” item above along with Gerard’s plaint of March 29: “Cats! Why does it always have to be Cats?”

    From the March newsletter of the International Air Transport Association (IATA): “Angry Cat Attacks Pilot, Forcing Boeing 737 Diversion.”
    “Some aviation stories are pawsitively unbelievable, but in this case, we’re not kitten around. A Tarco Airlines flight from Khartoum (KRT) to Doha (DOH) had to return to its origin after pilots encountered a fur-midable opponent shortly after takeoff. The Boeing 737 departed Khartoum on time, and was around 30 minutes into its journey when a cat-astrophe occurred. A feline stowaway appeared unexpectedly in the cockpit, to the great surprise of the Sudanese pilots.
    According to reporting in Al-Sudani, the kitty was not a happy passenger, and proceeded to attack the captain. While the crew made every attempt to capture the aggressive stowaway, it proved impossible to get near the furry hijacker. Unable to continue the journey, the pilots set about returning to Khartoum, to the surprise of the passengers onboard.
    While you might assume the naughty cat was an escapee from a passenger’s on-board belongings, it seems he was more likely to be a feral feline who sought a comfortable place to rest. Al-Sudani reported that the plane was stationary in the hangar overnight for cleaning and preparations. It is believed that the cat crept onboard and found a comfortable spot to rest in the cockpit.
    Of course, the ICAO code for Khartoum – HSSS – is completely coincidental, but beautifully expresses the emotion felt by the cat at finding he was several thousand feet in the air.”

    Sounds like the kitty refused to wear a mask as well as failing to practice social distancing with the captain.

    There is absolutely NO SUCH THING as a “trans” WOMAN.
    There are males and females.
    Oh, and there are vile, severely mentally ill sexual deviates that think they can become something they are not, and will never be.

    The two best lines I’ve ever heard people tell “trans-things”-
    1) “Guess what? DNA does not, and cannot possibly lie.”
    2) “So, you want us to accept you for what you are, yet you can’t accept what you were born as?”

    Vanderleun- Great choice on eye clinics- they have a great blonde Doctor there who is also smokin’ hot and has killer legs. I think her name is Kristi or Kristy. And I’m positive she’s been female from birth!

    As we continue on this path of Clown World, I must wonder if the Trans-military will finally be the nations undoing. Every freak-show looking to have a sex change will be going the ranks of military, not for the purpose of serving in defense of his/her…er its country, but instead for the free medical treatment.

    The “clean meat industry” falls into the realm of science that I refer to as – Just because it is possible to do a thing does not mean it should be done – category.

    The author of the Traveling in Covid Times piece comes across as a bit of a Karen. Though it was interesting to read the review of hotels and airports. I think I will stick with traveling by car and camping in a tent to avoid the continuing Covid precautionary theater.

    “Note: One of the simplest methods, pointed out in An Approach to Detect Sarcasm in Tweets (amongst other papers above) is to look for posts or Tweets (etc. etc.) which use the hashtag #Sarcasm.”
    No Kidding? Who would have thought of that?

    End of the Great Barrier Reef vid was very amusing. I knew that Al Bore was known for his ridiculous predictions and a few others, but so, so many and for such a long period of time just makes their climate hysteria all the more laughable.

    Re: clown world. I had a dream last week that I was attending a TED talk. The speaker postulated that Darwin’s Theory of Evolution and Einstein’s Theory of Relativity were actually two parts of a larger Unified Theory whereby all life would evolve to the point where it eventually blew up. Metaphysically, that’s a pretty interesting thing to think about.

    OK, so I checked a whole bunch of polls, and found out that us “straight males” are a bunch of really, really “BIGOTED” people when it comes to our choices for intimate relationships!
    It’s not just “trans-things”- as a matter of fact, 98% of us REFUSE to have sex with:

    Women who say “NO.”
    A mistress
    Farm animals
    Blow-up dolls
    Deceased people
    A beehive
    Underage children
    Sea creatures
    AIDS-infected people
    Family members & siblings
    Electric pencil sharpeners
    Crackhead, toothless $5 hookers
    Gay dudes
    Militant butch lesbians
    Automobile exhaust pipes
    Unconscious/comatose women
    Light bulb sockets
    Women weighing over 750 pounds
    and pink/purple/green/blue-haired Liberal women with several tattoos and piercings.

    Golly gee willikers, we must be the most “bigoted” people on Earth!

    St. John-

    first of all, it’s a progressive hoot.

    worked two film jobs there. the north side of the property was/is(?) filled with broken stone, failed attempts, half-finished projects. it was quiet and still. and fascinating. we did a pre-halloween shoot there of giant puppets held up on poles. the church organist was on hand, a *very* attractive young woman decked in a fishnet stocking etc lingerie-like witch’s outfit. she took a bit of a shine to me; my wedding was a week away. since I was in a cathedral I looked skyward and said, “it had to be now, right, Lord?” (if I stood a chance we’ll never know).

    there’s an aqueduct overflow (?) pipe rising from the sidewalke across the street from the church with a sign cautioning being drenched when the overflow is occurring. at lunch we did indeed see some passersby stop to read the sign and catch the downpour.

    PA Cat-

    HOLY CRAP! How truly fitting for that state! Maybe Chaz/Chastity/whatever Bono could be his Lt Gubernor? Heck, anybody would be better than “I screwed my best friend’s wife” Newsom.

    I’m at a point in life now where absolutely NOTHING surprises me anymore.

    By the way, I wonder just who that “2% of straight males” are that WOULD bang a tranny-thing are.

  • Kevin in PA April 7, 2021, 11:33 AM

    PA Cat,
    You didn’t mention that it, the Jenner thing, is running for the Republican nomination…..and I’m sure it will be warmly embraced under the new big tent of GOP inclusiveness. Once again, showing the Dead Elephant Party to be trying very hard to be Donkey Party lite.
    So much for “family values” being part of the Republican talking points.

    Kevin in PA-
    Well, it’s not like the Republican party “invited” Bruce to join, and I don’t think there’s any way to “kick him out” of the party. I think he’ll get about 5 total votes if he runs.

    James ONeil- Maybe you could settle for dating a woman with a beehive hairdo instead!

    Casey- That was freakin’ hilarious! (And TRUE)
