2022·05·28 Joe Biden Didn’t Win Daily Thread

Hey China!

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.

Hey BiteMe!
(Or, Whoever Has Their Hand Rammed Up That Putrefying Meat Puppet’s Ass)

[Language warning]

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’re LOSING.

You LOSER.

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.

His Fraudulency

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.)

Spot Prices.

Kitco Ask. Last week:

Gold $1,847.70
Silver $21.88
Platinum $964.00
Palladium $2,039.00
Rhodium $16,150.00

This week, markets closed as of 3PM MT.

Gold $1,855.10
Silver $22.22
Platinum $964.00
Palladium $2,172.00
Rhodium $16,250.00

Gold and silver up, most of the PGMs up but platinum itself is nailed in place at 964 bucks. (Still, inexplicably cheap compared to gold.)

And now for something completely different

I finally got a wild hair up my whatever and decided to investigate something I’ve known about for quite some time, Qubes OS.

The idea behind Qubes OS is that everything you do can run in a separate virtual machine. So if you want to go to a dodgy web site, perhaps one that sometimes puts malware on your system, you can open that website in a one-time virtual machine. It can go ahead and infect the daylights out of your system…and it won’t matter because it goes up in a cloud of smoke when you close the window. It’s sort of like sending all the woke people with the CRT mind virus off to their own island and letting them starve to death because they don’t know Jacques Schitt (brother of Adam) about doing anything you need to do to survive.

Qubes OS is in fact based on the premise that you WILL get attacked successfully; the idea is to only allow the hackers to get their mitts on one disposable “sandbox” that you can throw away.

Qubes OS is Linux based–fair warning. And I had a really hard time getting it to install, finally having to resort to installing it on a USB drive (not a thumb drive, but one of those little boxes you have to run a cable from, to a USB port). [This is not recommended, in fact they recommend using PS2 keyboards and mice instead of USB ones (including wireless). I didn’t even know anyone still sold those! But it was good enough for me to give it a test drive.] After struggling with that for three days, I’ve managed to do a lot in the last few hours.

You have direct control over which of the virtual machines can even see your internet connection, and/or your ethernet. In fact, the default setup includes something called the “vault.” It cannot communicate with ANYTHING without your direct intervention, so that’s a good place to keep, for example, your passwords.

In fact, I’m writing this post in a Qubes OS window running firefox. I’ll be working out Brave at some point. As well as a lot of other things.

Another fair warning–you will want 32 GB of RAM to start and a very powerful processor for this, and the fastest storage you can get (one of those M2 cards that plug directly into the motherboard would be about right). Running virtual machines consumes a lot of RAM and processing time. Opening a new window can take an annoyingly long amount of time when you’re used to something responsive.

In other words you might want a “Gaming” machine, but without the water-cooled graphics card that makes the lights dim when it shows monsters blowing up or whatever.

It’s supposedly possible to install Windows in one of the virtual machine “templates” and thereby be able to open up Micro$haft Turd or Micro$haft Exceed if you need to (though LibreOffice is usually a workable alternative to those); I have a number of eclectic apps that do not have Linux versions out there, so if I ever want to ditch my other old system, that’s something I will have to do.

It does come with Whonix, which by default uses Tor to communicate with the outside world.

Anyhow, this machine I am on isn’t bad…but it might be time to spring for a real powerhouse.

Now having said all that, probably the only person remotely interested here is Cthulhu, and he just uses a ton of Raspberry Pi machines anyway.

James Webb Space Telescope Update

Another of a series of articles on what they hope…OK maybe finally we can say “expect”…JWST to do. This one concerns the search for primimeval black holes.

Although we’re pretty confident there’s a mondo (4 million sun mass) black hole at the center of the galaxy (and one a thousand times more massive than that at the center of the M87 galaxy in the Virgo cluster), we do not know why galaxies seem to invariably have these black holes in them. Hopefully JWST will shed some light on that.

https://blogs.nasa.gov/webb/2022/05/26/webbs-quest-for-primeval-black-holes/

One question is whether these black holes existed before the galaxies did; that would likely mean galaxies need the black holes to form in the first place, sort of like raindrops condensing around dust particles. Well, we don’t have a time machine, but we CAN look backwards in time if we can just get a strong enough telescope that can see redshifted stuff from 13 billion light years away…which is what JWST is supposed to do for us.

Seeing 13 billion light years away is seeing 13 billion years into the past…because it takes the light that long to get to us; we only now would see what happened there 13 billion years ago. (Astronomers call this “look back time.” Yeah, no fancy Latin or Greek name; very few people learn that stuff in school any more.) On the other hand if we don’t see “bare” black holes back before there were galaxies, then they likely formed in the galaxies, after the galaxies formed; in other words rather than the black holes causing the galaxies, the galaxies caused the black holes.

Meanwhile the graphic showing the instrument commissioning still shows 19 instrument modes in progress.

Obligatory PSAs and Reminders

China is Lower than Whale Shit

Remember Hong Kong!!!

Whoever ends up in the cell next to his, tell him I said “Hi.”

中国是个混蛋 !!!
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

乔*拜登没赢 !!!
Qiáo Bài dēng méi yíng !!!
Joe Biden didn’t win !!!

Looking at the map that authorities provided —

— the classrooms were on both sides of a hallway with doors that locked…..but what was on the other side of the classroom from the hallway was a solid wall of windows. You can see the same thing in the front view of the school, with the sign. My sister, who teaches elementary school in Oregon, has a similar setup. The perp didn’t have a problem with this — he fired into classrooms 102, 103, and 104 through these windows from the outside.

Why were these guys standing around in the hallway instead of running someone around to the side with the windows? Even if they had a film covering them, it should’ve been possible to break the windows and turn the shooter’s location into a shooting gallery. Besides, the falling window glass would have been a helluva distraction to the shooter.

Incidentally, why wasn’t the school’s PA running something loud and distracting so that any kid not previously noticed wouldn’t inadvertently trigger notice with a sneeze or something? Or so the shooter wouldn’t hear the LEO behind him before he got lead poisoning?

Ground report: This afternoon at the high-end university town grocery store, I met a robot cruising the aisle coming in my direction. I will need to look up grocery store robots to see what they are supposed to do. I tried not to stare. LOL I thought at the time it would be able to do roving inventory-taking or tell people prices for items. One just never knows… Has anyone else been seeing these robots? It looked like a big rectangle with blue lights and a screen on its front.

Barb Meier

Found it… his name is Marty and the grocery store is Martins. There is no blue screen on his front, though I thought I saw one. It is tall, not a short little robot. I’m 6 foot tall and it’s at least as tall as me. Do you think it can shoot lasers at uppity customers?

I haven’t encountered one yet. I am always suspicious about being spied on, but if there are cameras in the store anyway, that’s a moot point unless they want an up-close look while I decide which bell pepper(s) I want. But I wonder if the robots can read things from my phone, etc.

Maybe it’s a new one of these, updated 🙂

Inventory control, and/or to discourage/film shoplifters? Or to spit out coupons?
Big Bother, in any case.

There are all sorts…..including depressed ones —

Hmmm. Wouldn’t that make it an “insecurity robot”, then…

I ran across one of those in a Md grocery store a couple years back, Ilooked at the wife and asked ..what’s that thing? She’s like.. oh yea, and even told me it’s name.  😯  😮 
It apparently was malfunctioning, as an employee was franticly pushing buttons on it to do something… and as I was watching.. to my amusement, the employee turned it off and pushed it out of everyone’s way  😂 
I’m forgetting what it was supposed to do, she’s asleep.. but will let you know later.  👌

They are supposedly checking the shelves to see what needs to be restocked.
