Or rather, “Hey Chinese Communist Party and your entire array of servitors, ass-wipers, and fellators!”
You’re not even worth my time this week. When you decide to act like civilized people, maybe I’ll give you a lesson or two in how non-barbarians behave.
(Or, Whoever Has Their Hand Rammed Up That Putrefying Meat Puppet’s Ass)
You and yours have caused a lot of injury. Literal injury with your war on people who don’t want to take an untested vaccine. When people die in an emergency room because a hospital won’t admit them because they haven’t had their clot shot, that’s a crime.
I’m going to address here the insult on top of the injury, because I am among the insulted. I still have my health but apparently you want me to live under the 8th Street Bridge (which actually isn’t on 8th Street, but whatever, that’s what the I-25 overpass over Cimarron is called), so maybe if you have your way that won’t be true for long. Dreadful time of year to become homeless.
No, you’re just trying to make me unemployed, because I won’t take your fucking shots.
Well, that threat is NOT going to work. I. Won’t. Take. Your. Fucking. Shots.
And it looks like enough people agree, that you’re having to back down, you worthless asswipe.
You Chinese-bought ratfucking traitor.
I would love to see you die an agonizing, humiliating death. (This isn’t a threat, because I am not threatening to cause that death. I am just announcing my intention to party if it happens.) It would be just recompense for the way you’re killing America…and millions of Americans.
Joe Biteme, properly styled His Fraudulency, continues to infest the White House, we haven’t heard much from the person who should have been declared the victor, and hopium is still being dispensed even as our military appears to have joined the political establishment in knuckling under to the fraud.
One can hope that all is not as it seems.
I’d love to feast on that crow.
(I’d like to add, I find it entirely plausible, even likely, that His Fraudulency is also His Figureheadedness. (Apparently that wasn’t a word; it got a red underline. Well it is now.) Where I differ with the hopium addicts is on the subject of who is really in charge. It ain’t anyone we like.)
Justice Must Be Done.
The prior election must be acknowledged as fraudulent, and steps must be taken to prosecute the fraudsters and restore integrity to the system.
Nothing else matters at this point. Talking about trying again in 2022 or 2024 is hopeless otherwise. Which is not to say one must never talk about this, but rather that one must account for this in ones planning; if fixing the fraud is not part of the plan, you have no plan.
Lawyer Appeasement Section
OK now for the fine print.
This is the WQTH Daily Thread. You know the drill. There’s no Poltical correctness, but civility is a requirement. There are Important Guidelines, here, with an addendum on 20191110.
We have a new board – called The U Tree – where people can take each other to the woodshed without fear of censorship or moderation.
And remember Wheatie’s Rules:
1. No food fights
2. No running with scissors.
3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.
4. Zeroth rule of gun safety: Don’t let the government get your guns.
5. Rule one of gun safety: The gun is always loaded.
5a. If you actually want the gun to be loaded, like because you’re checking out a bump in the night, then it’s empty.
6. Rule two of gun safety: Never point the gun at anything you’re not willing to destroy.
7. Rule three: Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire.
8. Rule the fourth: Be sure of your target and what is behind it.
(Hmm a few extras seem to have crept in.)
Kitco Ask. Last week:
This week, markets closed as of 3PM MT.
Everything down except palladium (and it went down on Friday). Silver down a LOT in percentage terms. So I guess the market manipulators (if they aren’t tinfoil hat imaginings, but that’s yet another metal) are at work.
Expect continued inflation and for shortages to not just continue but get worse.
James Webb Space Telescope Update
JWST is still in the last mirror-alignment iteration.
The NASA website is talking about temperature right now. MIRI is keeping chill at 6 or 7 kelvins, but not everything is at final temperature. The mirror, especially, is not quite at its final temperature. The primary mirror segments’ (the segments are the individual hexagonal parts of the big mirror) temperatures vary from 34.3 to 54.5 kelvins, and the secondary mirror (which is at the end of the tripod-like structure; it reflects light back towards the instruments) is at 29.4 kelvins. The primary and secondary mirrors are made out of beryllium, which just takes a long time to cool off. Things are close enough, though, to work on commissioning the instruments, and for that the telescope is oriented to look at the ecliptic poles (i.e., perpendicular to Earth’s orbital plane, or roughly parallel to the sun’s axis of rotation), and in that orientation JWST heats up the most. Which is still not much but at those temperatures any amount of heating could be significant. But the system is working well, and the spacecraft can continue cooling off even in this orientation.
Yesterday was Good Friday. Tomorrow is Easter.
If you’re thinking I’m out of my skull, well, you’re probably right but not on account of this; you see, I am talking about (Eastern) Orthodox holidays.
Easter is supposed to be the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox (the “paschal moon”, which is why it moves all over the place from year to year, but actually computing that date is a challenge.
Today, of course, we could determine the exact instant of the equinox (start of spring), the exact instant of the full moon, and then go to the next Sunday. But because not every place on Earth is at the same date, that could be problematic. Imagine that first full moon being on Sunday at 11:43 PM ET; that day should be Easter, right? But in Europe and certainly in Jerusalem, that’s Monday, and so Easter should be the next Sunday, not this Sunday.
But in ancient and medieval times, the Church just deemed spring to start on March 21, and counted from there using an algorithm that approximates the phase of the moon. But even March 21 being the first day of spring is a bit slippery, historically, because we began to switch calendars in 1564. Currently, it’s very likely that March 21 will actually be the first day of spring, but before the change spring might start on March 10–but the algorithm said to start with whatever day was called March 21, not the actual day of the equinox.
The algorithm is still being used today, with the “new,” more correct March 21.
Trying to follow the thread of this made my head hurt, but apparently, because (Eastern) Orthodoxy didn’t change calendars when the (Roman) Catholic church did, nor even when the protestant churches did, they don’t agree with the western churches, and usually end up celebrating Easter (and every other thing tied to the date of Easter) a week later.
Now whether they are late (rather than later), or the West jumps the gun and celebrates early, is a fight I don’t have a dog in. But the difference is an interesting historical artifact of how both our knowledge of astronomy and our calendars have developed over the centuries.
Obligatory PSAs and Reminders
China is Lower than Whale Shit
Remember Hong Kong!!!
Zhōngguò shì gè hùndàn !!!
China is asshoe !!!
China is in the White House
Since Wednesday, January 20 at Noon EST, the bought-and-paid for His Fraudulency Joseph Biden has been in the White House. It’s as good as having China in the Oval Office.
Joe Biden is Asshoe
China is in the White House, because Joe Biden is in the White House, and Joe Biden is identically equal to China. China is Asshoe. Therefore, Joe Biden is Asshoe.
But of course the much more important thing to realize:
Joe Biden Didn’t Win
Qiáo Bài dēng méi yíng !!!
Joe Biden didn’t win !!!
