I'm glad someone went to the trouble of combining these into 1 item:

For me, I think it doesn't go far enough in the safari direction.

I think it may be the accoutrement - possibly a very bad taste faux skin hat may get this combo properly rolling. And boots. Yeah. Disco spurs

Haloween can be much fun.
It was 3 or 4 years ago I worked out to have a large bowl of goodies at my front fence.
The goodies included what looked like many great chocolates but was actually herbal tea - with many chocolates!

I hear people saying - That is so irresponsible!
Remember it is trick or treat - I chose both at once.

PS there is literally zero chance that a child would eat herbal tea when they have the urge for chocolate. Zero. And it was very good herbal tea by the way which I thought the parents could drink to calm down.

I remember it was liquorice tea.
I now know more about this.
Caution with liquorice!
It mimics and places itself higher priority than processes to maintain balance.
If you need detail - look it up.

The main point with excessive liquorice is that the body keeps priority to recycle Na+. The active in liquorice is preferably considered before cortisol. High liquorice intake = no oxidation of cortisol = instruction to kidneys to recycle ALL Na+= taking K+ from the body to balance Cl- in the urine. Hypokalaemia. You do not want this. By the time it is diagnosed......

I am going so far off topic - in my thread - maybe it is OK?

Research - the practise of science is about opposing views.
And yet, Harvard (yes - I am looking at you Harvard) will claim that Coconut oil is deadly poison.
This is a mis-use of their position to guide good science.
How exactly is coconut oil deadly poison?
It must be because it is mostly saturated fatty acids.
Yes, those awful fatty acids that oxidise much less and even with coconut can in part be processed more quickly like carbs.

The first point is that dietary advice is about guiding what people eat and the way food is prepared. When you heat foods up - fats - what is going on when you do that? It is kind of important to think about what happens to food before you eat it.

I am in full rant mode - Omega6 - n6 - there is no reason to supplement this in your diet for fear of not having enough. Do you eat? Is there fat in your food? You are eating enough n-6.

The only interesting n-6 to consider is from GLA where it very readily changes to DGLA which is a precursor to a very interesting anti inflammatory eicosanoid.

The offense at Harvard's statement continues.

When you say Coconut is no good - a corollary of that is n-6 is good.
Fatty acids are saturated, mono-unsaturated or polyunsaturated.
Nearly all fats follow a distribution of these types - and with plants dependent on climate.
If you say 'Coconut is deadly poison' you are excluding fats from plants in hot countries.
It is about fluidity in cell membranes at the temperature they grow in.

I can go on and on and on.
Literally for days.

Harvard nutritional department offends me - just in case you missed that point

As a great philosopher once said: "not reading all that".

Wisdom. And even I, not believing that coconut oil is pure poison, don't overdue the use of it. If in doubt stick to whole foods.
Poor Harvard - I laid into them. Except they would be big boys and girls and can surely handle a bit of amateur nutritional science.
My specific area I like is fat synthesis (I am unsure of what this is - it isn't synthesis and seems to be not metabolism).

This may be indecipherable to many people:

Omega 3 pathway:
ALA -> (D6D) -> cis 6,9,12,15 octadecatetraenoic acid -> (elongate) -> cis 8,11,14,17 eicosatetraenoic acid -> (D5D) -> cis 5,8,11,14,17 eicosapentaenoic (EPA)
Then there are 2 pathways to DHA via elongate, D4D OR elongate, elongate, D6D, chain shorten.

Omega 6 pathway:
LA -> (D6D) -> GLA -> (elongate) -> DGLA -> (D5D) -> AA (I am pretty certain this is also called ARA, which I discovered to be amusing when you google ARA fat)

(D6D = delta 6 desaturase)

When considering advice on how much omega 6 vs 3, the modern diet has made it necessary to consider the ratio between them. There is no credible advice to go beyond 4:1. Latest I think Canada recommends 2:1 as an example.

Also it may be still unclear about which omega3s as to me they have different purposes. I think ALA is primarily to balance LA intake and to compete for D6D and D5D.
It becomes very interesting when you consider that EPA is a D5D inhibitor and DHA is a D6D inhibitor. Eating fish oils will decrease the amount of omega 6 LA converted into what people label as pro-inflammatory eicosanoids.

For people with chronic essential fatty acid deficiency (ALA and LA) you will find what is called Mead's acid - 20 carbons long with 3 double bonds. Mead's acid is made when D6D and D5D cannot be used on omega 3 or omega 6 pathways.

I was bemused that research was being done into selective D6D inhibitors or selective D5D inhibitors for the purpose of reducing conversion of LA into pro-inflammatory eicosanoids. Um. Eat less omega 6? Probably too obvious.

If at any point an administrator wants to delete this thread, I totally approve.
But, it is being written from what I think is now the lockdown capital of the world.
You give someone latitude but not longitude?
Very biased against time-zones.

Australia is different. I have seen commentary from the US and UK that Australia has gone mental. I don't know. As Dylan Moran quibbled, we live 3/4 of a mile from the surface of the sun and in between getting a nice skin crackling going on we throw ourselves into the sea with everything designed to end us. This is half true. The 'middle' part of Australia is hostile too.

I have tweaked the concept of disco safari suit.
Police disco safari suit.

As a side note, I am impressed by the fashion statement of a Mao suit.
When made to correct specifications, it is an insight to what the person designing it may have thought. "You know the safari is good, but let's make it better"

My mind is unable to hold the concept of a disco Mao suit.
Best to walk away from that.
Even bad taste has boundaries.

When this covid madness has subsided - I propose you (anyone willing who may have similar values) to visit Australia and hike around the places I know well and if it is not too much, me as your guide.
I know the Mansfield area high planes better than extremely well.
It is in my DNA.
I spent year 9 there - learning the mountains - their spurs and valleys. The changing moods of the weather. Hiked through rain to bed with leeches. Opened my japara to balance with the wind through Hell's Gap at midnight. Rolled a rock so big off Mt McDonald that you couldn't believe! (Please don't do that)
But you can not be so sure of yourself in those parts.
It would become interesting if you do that.
PS - you may have picked up that I am sure in this place. I will be measured in how sure I am

I am forgetting that I am most likely not fit enough for hiking.
There is an easy option - drive to Mt Buller where you can very nearly drive to the summit.
When there isn't snow on the mountain.
Not quite as good as say Mt Speculation or Mt Howitt, but at least there isn't approx 1 km vertical to contend with.

This isn't a concept 'better than what is going on'
The consequences of not knowing this info is not worth it if this happens:
Nuclear explosion.
Fall out.
Rule of 7 for the first 3 half lives (of a multitude of things emitting gamma radiation) - this rule isn't applicable after that.
7 hours.
2 days.
2 weeks.
You cannot have any exposure to the first 7 hours.

What you need to consider is time and distance.

1 metre of packed earth will give you ten half reductions of the radiation.
Which is one thousandth.

Do not get in a car to drive if there is any risk of fall-out around you. Your eyes will lose the plot and at best continually re-set.

It is worth considering where you may go if a nuclear explosion happens near you.

It is worth considering this and then forget about it.

I think I said something incorrect - rule of 7 for the first 3 half lives.
Yes - the rule of 7 is correct - I suspect saying half life here isn't correct because it is a ten-fold reduction. So I will say it another way:
There are so many units of radiation and I get confused by them.
This is what I understand is understood:
New fallout 1000 whatever units.
7 hours later 100 units.
2 days later 10 units.
2 weeks later 1 unit.
And this is vague too - is it 2 weeks or 2 weeks + 2 days + 7 hours?
Let's say it means 2 weeks.
So 2 weeks will give you the same protection from new fallout as 1 metre of packed earth.
In context this makes sense?

Still in lockdown in Melbourne - I am 'amusing' myself with how boned I would be if fallout happened. And I like particle Physics. Except if I am too intimately and directly involved with the more vigorous real-world applications.

In this world, I think I would rather be at ground Zero.

It's additive not '2 weeks', so in the first 2 weeks it decreases by x amount, for the next 2 days it decreases by y amount and for the next 7 hours it decreases by z amount, so it's 2 weeks + 2 days + 7 hours. When talking radiation it's always additive, so if the half life is 0.5 million years, then in the first 0.5 million years it decreases by one half of the original number, then over the next 0.5 million years that new number is then decreased by half again giving you a new starting number to then decrease again by half in another 0.5 million years.

Except we are dealing with a rule of thumb - multiple components.
So it may actually be 2 weeks, not 16 days and a bit.
PS I am just enjoying talking about things i may know how little I know.
As opposed to having no clue as to how little I know.
I am sure there would be an appropriate Douglas Adams quote to back me up, if I could think of it.
Possibly keeping your towel handy is good advice if that is all you can remember.

Things better than what is going on is the movie Silver Streak with Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder.
This movie isn't complicated and has soul.
I highly recommend.
And Mancini wrote the music which is very good.
The movie is very good before Richard Pryor becomes involved and then it gets better.
There is a scene where Gene is watching what Richard is doing with apt fascination - which I love. What I understand from watching these 2 actors is they have a rapport and enjoy making movies together. The movie is good and then it has moments of pure brilliance. 8/10 where 6/10 is worth watching.

People may need a laugh.
I brought this up before on aggie the pew.
It drives me totally bonkers hearing herbs pronounced as 'erbs.
Totally bat crazy.
Pronounce the aitch people!
Any cooking show where 'erbs are added makes my blood simmer.
I have looked up the derivation and it is one version of correct to say 'erbs.
I would prefer either herbs (with an aitch) or les herbes (where you can drop the aitch)
I would love it if the only problems in the world were about aitches.
Except I seem to have issues with aitches so maybe please don't do that.

I really hope no-one was offended by me talking about herbs.
It was hopefully understood that I am showing I am being ridiculous.
Pronouncing herbs without the aitch is correct.
Just as pronouncing it with the aitch is also correct.

I found a table showing reduction of radiation after 'the event'
It has 7 hours after (1/10)
And 2 days after (1/100)
"For every 7-fold factor of time, there is a ten-fold decrease in dose rate"
And it seems that the choice of 1000 R/hr is kind of looks like an arbitrary (but informed) amount - and this is 1 hour after the event.


I just like particle physics which includes balancing lepton, baryon numbers.
As long as I don't have to think quantum which possibly doesn't exist if you look the other way.

I have a key chain that emits Beta radiation through the process of H3 -> He3 + e- + electron antineutrino. That has a half life of about 12 years. Undoubtedly as one gets older, eyesight gets worse, so I wonder what may be the perceived brightness of the key chain with time?

Let's now share where I have advanced my thinking.
Lighting design.
In theatre (not surgery - it amazes and amuses me when I say I work in theatre to doctors)

These are the immediate constraints - time and money.
Time is the ultimate one.

Then you have interpersonal and what does that person know?
Connection is the bountiful resource.
And the beauty about working in theatre is that there is no 'correct' way to communicate.
You adapt. make it up, and for me - have fun with it.
Fun doesn't mean I am being cavalier.
It means connection for me.

I have never been higher (I have tried a few ways) than negotiating your way through interactions with a multitude of people and design/safety constraints to be finely tuning multiple levels of design and knowing it is excellent. And you can know it is excellent when the fine tuning is not about rolling a turd in glitter (theatre term) but actual connection with the work - full support and connection through your design that happens right in front of you.

I want to quote a poem now, because I am inspired:

“To suffer woes which Hope thinks infinite;
To forgive wrongs darker than death or night;
To defy Power, which seems omnipotent;
To love, and bear; to hope till Hope creates
From it's own wreck the thing it contemplates;
Neither to change, not falter, nor repent;
This, like thy glory, Titan, is to be
Good, great and joyous,beautiful and free;
This is alone Life, Joy, Empire, and Victory”

It is most true that a proper successful lighting design - on every level is this.
It is life, joy, empire and victory.
PS Vaughan Williams Sinfonia Antartica uses these exact (abridged) words.
I will search the internet for this.
I made a 2 part organ (church organ) duet from VW symphony 7 first movement. In year 12. It has never been played. Many regrets but that is OK - I got to properly engage thru lighting design.

The worst interaction with me and maths (yes plural - haha, I re-discovered another thing I dislike)
I failed 3rd year number theory twice. And I actually had some level of trying the 2nd time!

Maths 201, or maybe it was a first year subject?
Whining on about axioms with no hint as why that could possibly be introduced into the world.

Maths 232 was excellent. Differential equations.
I know first order differential equations through the example of do you add milk before or after so that the tea has the highest temp? Simple. The rate of heat loss is a first order correlation to the difference between temperatures. You add the milk first, because it reduces the rate of change of temp. Cold milk will have the usual effect - to reduce temp. Might as well use it in your favour to reduce heat exchange too.

I actually got my BSc - apparently I could be 'qualified'. Yeah right.

I used my time in such a way as that I invented the 2 chamber filtered bucket bong.

Images can be previewed on standard BOINC forums, but YouTube links are VIDEOS thus no preview.
The only EXTERNAL BOINC (non-project) forum I know of that has YouTube preview is at BOINCstats.

Oh come on, Nick, you're just not opening up your wallet enough to get a Satisfactory Customer Experience. Save your vitriol for the internet giants who know what name you will give your first-born even before you get hot and dirty.

I just praised microsoft and apple in a Red Hat customer portal support case for having high quality software (not that they care so much about customers, it's because it saves them money in support costs). You should see the unbelieveable ways the RHEL installation ISO can stop working. You can't so much blame RH for relying on open source software of variable quality, but there's no excuse for Red Hat's own software to crash and burn with reasonable configuration choices. The worst part is arguing with their engineering team that they're doing it wrong, that a certain package needs to be in the base image. I was ultimately vindicated by pointing them to their own documentation telling you what clicks set up Enterprise logins without so much as a peep about needing to make custom package selections. That case was on RHEL 6, 9 years ago. Currently I've got 2 support cases on RHEL 8.4 where the installer just gives up with a Python error trace, and a third where it hangs. I even figured out the causes and workarounds for them. Meanwhile it's hard to point to an instance these days where a Windows installation reliably gives you a BSOD.

I just praised microsoft and apple in a Red Hat customer portal support case for having high quality software (not that they care so much about customers, it's because it saves them money in support costs).

I definitely got Red Hat's attention. Three senior maintenance engineers and a manager are now on this can of worms. That's exactly my point about support costs. If it worked in the first place they wouldn't need these expenditures. Is it about job security?

By weight, carbon dioxide is 0.051% of dry air, whereas oxygen is 23.14%. Assuming complete combustion of pure carbon uses all available oxygen (no carbon monoxide, no nitrogen oxides, no soot), carbon dioxide is 29.33% of flue gas by weight (taking into account the additional weight of the added carbon: CO2 is 1.375 times heavier than O2). If a carbon capture unit working at 100% efficiency removes 50 tonnes/day of carbon dioxide from flue gas, the combustion consumes 13.6 tonnes of carbon and produces 170.5 tonnes of gasses per day, of which 120.5 tonnes is emitted from the chimney. Dry air is 1.292 kg/m3 so the intake air supply is approximately 157 tonnes/day, or 121.5 thousand m3/day. An air intake vent to supply this combusion, with an area of 1 m2, would require a flow rate of 1.4 m/sec (a light breeze of 5 km/hr).

If you want to directly remove CO2 from the atmosphere, you would need to process about 575 times the volume of dry air as you would flue gas. The speed of sound in air is 343 m/sec, so air would be passing through through a 1 m2 intake vent at mach 2.35 to get enough CO2 to remove 50 tonnes/day.

Conclusion: it's far easier to avoid putting CO2 into the air, than to clean up the mess you made.

I am really liking that I think it is literally not possible to be off topic on this thread.

I didn't say that when I was seeing the red mist by being made to have a Microsoft account and password - I wasn't aware that my local password would now be the Microsoft password. I had a moment or 2 of panic when I discovered this while on the wrong side of access to my passwords.

And then - hang on - I can actually remember that one.

And I know how I constructed the password.
It was a bit at a time.
Password.
No we need lower case too.
No we need a number too.
And a character.

I have a written copy of my new password because that is a proper one.

Having fun with Norton.
An add-on doesn't work - processing enrolment for 10 days now.
I wrote out, within 255 characters, what was going wrong.
And then I was surprised that the next step was an actual number to call.
Don't panic. It was the wrong number. Business as usual.

I'll request that my neighbour rearrange his front yard to facilitate getting the add-on to work. It will be some minutiae that will have to be achieved, possibly under a new moon on a Wednesday.

I was going to say something and as careful as I could say it - it is political.
I had a thought of an idea to donate electrons.
And then I thought - that is easy to produce electrons - the trouble is deeper.
Delve on.
Could I produce a source of neutrons?
Their half life is less tedious than the subjects.
OK.
And I am leaping ahead here.
Can baryonic matter, in the form of leptons, be presidential?
That is what we are dealing with.

Back to random:
And on a brighter note
I really do not know which is better out of a 9960X and a 10980XE
I am using 'the force' but somewhat with consideration of parameters.
There is very little between the abilities of these 2 CPUs.
But - so far- I would go the 10980XE.
For the reason of the extra 2 threads.
(When I compare CPUs I compare all they can do)
Makes me look silly for buying 2 of the last available 9960X?
We will see.
Edit: I have 2 ready to go new 9960X CPUs

Let's get into proper drivel.
From the lockdown capital of the world.

Infinity is fun.
In the infinite hotel, you can have an infinite number of rooms occupied and place an infinite number of buses of people into them successfully but the issue starts when you have an infinite methodology of naming the people on the buses. (Edit: to specify/name an infinite peoples on each bus)

Roll on the next infinity.

I get those 2 types of infinity - and have a reasonable handle on how you show they are different. The set of counting numbers vs the set of irrational numbers. But what is with infinity larger than these?

Mathematics and I have a mutual understanding - it is best for both our sanity to leave each other alone. :)

The thing you need to know about Australia is that it can be perceived as very dangerous.
We have crocodiles.
We have sharks.
And now we are getting tornadoes, sharks are dropping from the sky.
It doesn't matter to us.
Unless we haven't properly prepared the deep-fryer.

On a serious note, bare foot in my backyard, my foot found a red-back spider.
Don't find this spider!

Except with the way in which we do things here - I smashed it.

I had some 'fun' 2 hours before the challenge started.
I discovered that 1 computer didn't want to talk to the internet aspect of my WIFI.
But it could through my phone hot-spot, if I turned the computer off and on again.

As these things are totally random - it was sitting next to 2 other computers with the same or very similar hardware that had no problem - I decided to try a random solution.
So I let the cat in and then after a bit, put it out again.
Then I remembered that I don't have a cat.

A little bit later all was back to normal.

It is possibly unwise to experiment with cats in boxes (a house is a box), particularly when the cat is imaginary and you are also in the box.

If your pc's are close together you can always 'share' the internet connection and run a cat5 cable from the one with the best connection to the others and then all will connect thru the one that always works. ORRR you could just 'share' the internet on every pc and if any card goes down the others will help it out.

I have to get the modem moved from the front room to the kitchen - where it is a short run to wire all the computers in. I should have less issues taking WIFI out of the equation.

Get a decent switch and leave the modem status quo. Switch will give you more ports, also.

I was definitely going to do that. One run from kitchen to lounge and to box. Computers to box. I was going to say hub - is switch same difference?

Right now I have a 4 way HDMI KVM for 2 computers. I could have gotten the 2 way, but hey it isn't much more for 4. And I had it all working sweetly for a week. One wireless KB and wireless mouse with 3 channels - 2 Bluetooth and 1 proprietary - for 4 computers (2 of which on the KVM with the 3rd channel). And then the Bluetooth dongle broke on the KVM - it only lasted a week. I went back to 2 KB and 2 mice.

I can highly recommend a Dell KB and mouse 3 way wireless. Very nice small KB and both KB and mouse has an easily accessible button to switch through the 3 channels.

And I would have chosen 2 KB and mice over a KVM, if I had 5 HDMI on my TV. I only have 4 - one of which is for a Blu-ray.

When the new dongle arrived - and I have tried! - I cannot persuade it to work. I have pulled out a wired KB and mouse, attached them to one of the computers on the KVM, then pulled the USB from the KVM, uninstalled the Logitech dongle and tried installing the new Bluetooth dongle on one of the computers. It won't do it. Oh well there are worse things than having 2 KB and 2 mice for 4 computers. I haven't yet tried having 'the persuader' in view of the computer, to show what may happen to it if it doesn't comply. :)

Maybe I should try just swapping the Logitech dongle on the KVM to the new Bluetooth, and one computer at a time, try to encourage them? I thought I was doing it sensibly, but maybe just swap it out at the KVM? Still with the use of a wired KB and mouse.

This would be - in the middle of a challenge - the ideal time to mess about with this? (No, it really wouldn't be)

In the days of win98 or something else horrific, when things could and would go badly, I would make use of a spare KB. I would unplug the one I was using, beat it to a pulp and then plug in the new one. It definitely felt better and only destroyed a $10 item rather than the whole computer.

Switches are smart hubs. A hub does not have any collision management, whereas a switch does. Switches are faster and some have management software where you can add additional settings, such as QOS, port routing, etc. Unmanaged switches are fine for most people, but do a little homework, some are better than others.

A smart hub - that sounds like a good idea.

I had hoped someone would look at the video.
It is about a minute long.
Someone accidentally drops what I think is a GoPro from a plane.
It starts spinning up.
It lands. (with lens pointing upwards!)
A pig tries to eat it.

I got curious about the frequency of the spin.
And I have an idea what frequency to look for.
It will most likely be NTSC - 30 frames per second (and to consider 60 fields / sec).
From the image towards the end of falling, I think the image must be created by double the frame rate.
So I am thinking 60Hz. My tone generator agrees strongly with this.
I wanted to download software to measure this directly, but the software I just downloaded needs an external live source.

This video is the coolest thing YouTube has thrown at me for a long time. It could be the best ever. I don't know how it could possibly be better. It is all downhill from here. Oh well.

I have ordered a switch.
It is a Netgear smart-managed 8 port switch.
Should hopefully be both not too much to learn and give me a few possibilities.

But more importantly - I think I got the ethernet cable colours right.
For the 3 computers together - RGB
For the one separate that is near a minefield of black spaghetti, it is white.
And the last one, to connect to the modem, is black.

I think many people may appreciate this:
I couldn't order the standard quality of green at 1.5m.
So I have ordered a more expensive option for all the cables.

Yup. Definitely an incredible video.

Something to think about next time your phone, in a case, drops from your pocket onto a carpeted floor, and the screen cracks.

Right now I have a 4 way HDMI KVM for 2 computers. I could have gotten the 2 way, but hey it isn't much more for 4. And I had it all working sweetly for a week. One wireless KB and wireless mouse with 3 channels - 2 Bluetooth and 1 proprietary - for 4 computers (2 of which on the KVM with the 3rd channel). And then the Bluetooth dongle broke on the KVM - it only lasted a week. I went back to 2 KB and 2 mice.

I can highly recommend a Dell KB and mouse 3 way wireless. Very nice small KB and both KB and mouse has an easily accessible button to switch through the 3 channels.


Can't you just get a small USB hub that is USB and has a few USB ports on it and just move it from pc to pc instead of plugging and unplugging everything every time?

My aim is to as much as possible to sit on my fat a*** on the couch with a mouse and kb.
I have ordered 2 new different Bluetooth dongles.
It is correct to have it installed on the KVM.
I don't want input parallel to another computer.

I am pretty sure I haven't thought correctly about what is going on in the image.
The sound does seem to be 60Hz, but maybe that is a harmonic?
And I'd need to know what tech was like when that was videoed.
Is it using fields?
Frame rate that could be used.
It seems really unlikely that the camera would happen to be rotating at a rate that happens to align with the frame rate, but maybe that is what is so special about the video?
The axis of rotation is changing - possibly like a pendulum - and I think 60 fields / sec explains it.
I'm going to leave it.
The pig has the right idea.

I seem to not be able to let it go.

OK. The end result - what we see - is 2 images of the same combined.

Surely (don't call me Shirley) the framing slowly changing is caused by the rotation just a tiny bit different from the capture rate? The logic is how the hell could it be exactly the same?

But the scene twice in the image?

What is shown with the pig is what we would normally see. Normally, if we ignore that a pig is trying to eat the camera.

We are getting 2 views captured by the camera when it is dropping.
The lens has to be pointing in 2 directions in what we see in each frame in the final product?
And doing this consistently.
Albeit with a slight difference between rotation of camera and frame rate.

I don't know if it is fields or movie mode.
I suppose I could get software to find this out.

I think what is happening is it is rotating not just in the plane parallel (x-y) with the ground - but has a z component.

Fields are the easiest explanation because they capture an image in 2 parts - odd or even horizontal lines. And standard NTSC is 60 fields /sec.

No no no.

The camera is rotating at half the capture rate of whatever method of capture - a full frame or a field. My TV setup won't noticeably sound 30Hz. Or the camera may be capturing at 120Hz - it is for action right?

The best I can come up with is this:
The capture rate of the camera is very slightly different from twice the speed of rotation of the camera.
The camera is rotating about an axis not perpendicular to the ground.
And all hardy cameras should go through the drop from a plane and eaten by a pig test.

Edit: I could get software to analyse the vision and sound, but unless I have gotten something wrong, for me this is enough.

I am going further with this.
The camera is acting like a propeller in feather mode (many unnecessary aviation (no-fuel) accidents have occurred because the pilot forgot to place the propeller(s) in feather)
From the perspective of the camera, there is movement of air which I think will be parallel to the axis of rotation. I think this will be an air-movement combination due to it dropping and wind. Possibly a shift in barometric pressure with height.
I am thinking about comparing a uniform-mass sphere with a camera which isn't that.
I think in this scenario the uniform-mass sphere wouldn't change it's rotation in any way.
A camera couldn't possibly be equivalent.
So what happens when you drop an asymmetrical mass from a great height that interacts with air?

I think the camera is shooting video at 30hz while rotating at 60rpm.

The video is old. 60 hz cameras weren’t that common back then. I think 30 hz is more likely.

The audio does sound like 60hz, so it likely is.

Video is shot line by line, so with the camera rotating twice as fast as it is scanning, it is going to capture the image twice in each frame. This effect is exactly what you see in the video.

My two cents.

My two cents.

I would expect the camera to record fields at 60Hz - with the outcome of seeing the image refreshed at 30Hz.
And I know you don't mean 60rpm. It would be 60rps.
There is a qualitative difference between seeing moving images that has fields vs whole frames.
It helps smooth out movement which was how they did it 'in the day'.

But I am really thankful for the response - and I cannot blame lockdown anymore for my dogged interest.

The lesson for life is that the pig will (try to) eat it no matter the interesting physics that happened before.

Edit: I really think that the rate of capture of (full) images is twice the rotation. We need to account for the double image. But I hear what you are saying about tech - except in my head it doesn't work, which isn't the best test of utility/function. :)

I have started feeding my local magpies again.
It was before 6pm yesterday when we were required to wear a mask.
I am happy to wear a mask because i have Borat, Father Ted and many others.
I think my favourite is "Yeah I know" (Little Britain)
I unmasked to feed them so they could recognise me.

I introduced chicken vindaloo to a magpie.
It was a small amount.
The magpie held it for a while, spat it out and then ate some of it.
I am not being cruel - I am getting them to know me with food.

I shared a curry with a crow before I understood that birds most likely won't have the chilli reaction we do.

Edit: Most birds do not have a taste receptor for chilli. ie: They do not feel the heat.
I would never feed a magpie vindaloo if I didn't know this.
It was a small amount. Only chicken.
And previously I gave them lamb roast.

Who could say that a magpie shouldn't enjoy the flavours of a vindaloo?
What I saw in the space of about half a minute was a magpie being very unsure to why not try it.
Magpies are smart. Don't worry for them.

And all hardy cameras should go through the drop from a plane and eaten by a pig test.

I think you missed the point that by landing in a pig pen the impact shock was considerably absorbed by the soft landing.

I think I may have become unwelcome in the Thought of the Day thread.
I'm really going to need to practice thoughting - you know the thing with the thingy?
(I am nearly certain this is a bit of fun. And 100% certain it doesn't matter)
I am bringing together my army of camera-eating pigs with which I can make my next assault on the Thought of the Day thread.

Last night I caught up with a mate.
We talk a lot about the thoughty stuff.
We ventured to Crime and Punishment.
I haven't read the book and I thought I knew what the message is.
Extreme actions will irreparably change you.
No, it is more than that.
We hold our own punishment close to us.
I am definitely NOT going to read the book now.

Edit: The warning at the start of the video isn't representative of most of the content. I would class it as PG, but maybe I have got this wrong. After all, my focus is on feeding cameras to pigs, not the classification of the videos. In nearly every case, the pig will eat the camera and no classification is required.

Message 152053 - Posted: 30 Oct 2021 | 5:35:58 UTC

I have been watching the outtakes of the show Derek by Ricky Gervais.
I cannot post them here.
The most important thing in creating theatre is to both treat it very seriously and to not.
When Ricky had a go at Steve at the globe awards, he checked in with him first.
Steve said "Of course, go for it!"
Creative people need to be creative and most are careful - however it may look.
Ricky has Karl around to make fun of him and Karl likes this.
The character Kev is meant to be ridiculous and also to have a bit of fun.

When I worked as a lighting designer, my greatest appreciation of other people was about detail, followed right next to it, a sense of humour. Having a laugh doesn't mean it isn't serious.

Not every lighting design became something worthwhile. The ones that did generally were because the creatives communicated well and could laugh at the process.

In lighting design, it is best to understand the realities of what makes it work.
For a design of Madam Butterfly, I was going for the reddest state I had ever made for the end of Act 1. The direction in the score is to have moving panels - which one lights. In the plotting session, I didn't have the panels so I had to guess. The fun thing that happened when the panels arrived is I saw what happens with a pair of cans (110 volt - they have to be paired in series in Australia) were pointing inwards from either end of an upstage lighting bar (as an aside - this is Americano in Italian). Wow. I have created a giant love heart. I shouldn't have been surprised that it turned out unusually - I was using 2 cans wishfully. And I left it in, as cheesy as it might look.

LEDs are the death of designing with colour.
To design with colour well, demands careful attention to the choice of palette. Colours are what they are in themselves but also in relation to other colours. The skill is to place the right colours in the right places and to use them to express the journey through the work.
A light in one scene can have a totally different meaning in another.
Careful use of resources.
Colours are to be mixed together.
LEDs go against the careful planning of use of resources and visualisation of possible mixes.

When you use standard fixtures (lights), the visual dimming curve starts at about 10 to 15% level.
Smooth crossfades between states need lights to be pre-warmed and/or post-warmed.
A LED is not subtle like this. Going from zero to 1% is a notable shift - particularly when the audience can see the actual fixtures. Even if you set it to DMX 1 (out of 255) - they are jarring.

Lighting design is both everything and nothing.
Everything in the sense is that it manipulates and controls what the viewer sees.
Nothing in the sense that it is not the fundamental of the work.

I am learning that I should not talk about things I have very little understanding of.
But I am 'worried' about how someone could model the IQ of a mob of sheep.

My understanding of sheep is that the larger the mob, the dumber it gets.
I think a singular sheep has a random thing, that within a mob sets them all off.

I will assume IQ is the metric to use - there isn't another one that I know of.

I am thinking the parameters are that a singular sheep has an IQ.
The IQ of a mob of sheep has an inverse proportion to the size of the mob.
And each sheep has a potential for 'random' which is the correlation with mob stupidity.

Important stuff here.

This is going to be so awesome.
I have ordered 3 tonnes of acoustic treatment from Acoustic Fields in the USA.
For my front room.
It was initially 2.5 tonnes - 2 tonnes along the walls.
I couldn't place that weight on the floor without making sure it is golf tango golf. (good to go)
As I need to rebuild the sub-floor, it will now have diaphragmatic treatment built in - good down to 30Hz.
The treatment around the walls is 'only' down to 40Hz.
12 inches gives you 40Hz and up.
16 inches gives you 30Hz and up.

I have a power-plant from PS Audio.
This takes the power, converts it to DC and re-builds it from scratch.
PS Audio thinks that you need separates.
You really don't when this integrated is your choice:
The McIntosh MA12000.
Tonight I just listened to a Daft Punk album at 48%.
How could I describe this?
Not sure how to.

Speakers are now the 2nd best B&W stand speakers - 805D3.
Why stand speakers?
It will make sense when I get the room treatment.
The smaller the room, the more room distortions it has.
To get more bass, the last thing you should do is to get larger sources of pressure.
People have started crying when they listen to Acoustic Field's treatment. (Edit: That is funny. Listening to sound with the treatment is what I meant. I strongly suspect it is not good enough to cry by hearing it doing nothing)
Most people will have never heard a low frequency be defined by itself - it would be defined by the percussive higher frequencies only.

In the words of George from Seinfeld "I'm busting Jerry!"

Edit: I first bought the MHA150 - headphone amp which is meant to be 50W for speakers.
It was so out of puff above 50%.
I had ordered and paid for the MA8900, and then I listened to the review of the MA12000 by Audio Excellence (Canada) and know those guys know what they are talking about. So I went for it.
1990 was the last time I bought a full stereo.
Why muck about now?
Do it properly.

Power conditioners?
Be careful with those.
I think the Niagara from AudioQuest is good, but not much else.

The powerplant from PSAudio has a very low impedance supply of power to the components.
What this means is that when the amplifier needs immediate power it gets it right away.

Melbourne is nearly back to normal - whatever that means.
In the dying light of mask wearing, I have bought masks that just say more:

Borat in the mankini "Wear mask, save lives"
It has arrived. Actually it isn't too bad.

Little Britain "Computer says no"

And my new favourite "Let's go Random"
I changed a word there.
I like that people are pushing back with humour.
I bought a t-shirt too.

My fashion is with t-shirts and masks from red bubble.

My latest favourite t-shirt is of Manny (Bill Bailey) from Black Books. "Barely humanoid milk-fed Gimp". I have this fashioned in a mid-grey classic t-shirt with writing in black acceptably comfortable capital letters in a font that says you have structure but can accept fragrance. Oui!

Edit: "Oui" pour reconnaître l'excellent travail que le président de la France a fait pour soutenir l'Australie.

Ten years ago when I got my kitchen 'done', you have choices.
One of those is the height of drawers.
Standard here is 120mm (4.7 inches) for top drawer and 600mm (23.6 inches) below that for standard 3 drawers.
Many people get 3 x 200mm.
For the 600mm division, I went for fit for purpose - range of heights.
And ended up with:
160, 200, 240 - 240 at the bottom.

Whatever the thing is, it needs to achieve that without consideration of another contradictory aesthetic.

Why I am thinking this is I have just cooked the HUGEST chicken stock and I was going to cook half the chicken carcases at a time - to make a consume. Except they all fitted - 20 of them. The strainer I used was a non-commercial one (I have one of those) and this one fitted in the 240mm (600mm wide) lower drawer - I couldn't believe this fitted when I bought it. (I wasn't trying to buy something that couldn't fit anywhere)

Edit: I feel that the story didn't have the correct finale. It is amazing that I fit 20 chicken carcases into the undisclosed sized pot. It is also amazing that the strainer - that looks like a normal one, but is larger than a mid-sized commercial one - fits in a lower drawer which I happened to direct to be 240mm height.

Oh yes, and gravity has ended, everyone is now OK with people saying stuff, and I watched a beetle try to crawl up my leg that said not much except hello.

Now the stock is about 12 litres and I have added onion, garlic, suede turnip (a small one) and carrot. Then I remembered I still need to reduce this a lot. But then it is about building flavour. I still have more onions, garlic and new ingredients, celery and scallions. And a potato.

I haven't hit it with salt yet.
I wonder how no added salt may negatively change the cooking?

If I add salt, it will be very much to the extent that it tastes not un-salty.

Tasting salty versus not tasting un-salty is a huge difference - and I recommend you find ingredients to explore this.

Edit: The very best information I have is that sodium is not a problem to the most vast segment of the population. The awareness is about flavour. Flavour isn't just salt.

And off I go to what I have learnt from people that know what they are talking about.
SFAs (Saturated Fatty Acids) have never been an issue, regardless of how strongly you may hold the concept.

In the 1950s, someone thought that fats caused disease and the humans were so much better at making food.

We got foods that took this philosophy and combined it with zero normal fats AND people aligning science with the new magic foods.

Anyone who could have a glimpse of evolutionary biology may struggle with the concept that people can suddenly come up with foods that are so much better and yet health is becoming worse?

Mary Enig is the foundation of reason with fats.

Mary Enig is correct.

Edit: Mary cared about science. She was proud of her accomplishments. She cared to find science in the place to be questioned. Is there any other place for science to be? Sorry, I am going to go off chops here - you think science is about re-affirming something? Go home. It is about trying to see if your idea doesn't work. And remember falsifiability.

Don't add suede turnip to a stock.
I know I was testing the boundaries.
Suede may work if it was roasted before - not worth it.

It needs salt to fix it.
Very unusual mix of flavour.

Oh cr#p I didn't add celery or the potato. I have now strained it. I am done. Next time....

This stock will work for most things.
Tomorrow I will go star anise, a tiny sliver of cinnamon, more garlic, some sesame oil and broccoli for a healthy soup.
Edit: And the 'hanging in the window' pork and duck I bought yesterday. I hope the suede won't make that too bad.

I am not sure I was making sense about the nutrition of fats.
I think there is an interesting component to nutritional guidelines - it needs to be about food the population can actually readily get/buy.
But I will pick on canola oil.

My first gripe is about flavour - it is rubbish.

And then my next gripe is about reactivity, particularly when cooking with it.
It is about 10% ALA (omega3) - this fatty acid is particularly reactive.
A paper that I read compared linoleic acid (18 carbon omega6 with 2 double bonds) to stearic acid (18 carbon with all saturated bonds). The energy required to break the bond between the 12th and 13th carbon on linoleic acid was one quarter of the energy to break the same-position bond on the saturate. ALA has 3 double bonds. Sorry I have to write this now I have thought this - the more kinky the molecule, the more reactive it is.

What saturated fatty acids do as part of the composition of fatty acids is to help protect the more reactive unsaturates. I have been unable to find much information about positions of different fatty acids on glycerol - particularly for tri-glycerides. All I have ever found is that in cow fat (sorry can't remember if it is fat made in the rumen - probably is this one) a short chain prefers the 2nd position on the glycerol.

My 3rd gripe is about how processed canola is - it actually needs to be this processed. The high smoke point is a result of it being highly refined. Highly refined oils take nutritional components out - not that you'd actually want to eat the removed components of canola oil - I remember they are poisonous.

When I hear nutrition advice banging on about saturated fatty acids being bad and high omega6 being good I am very sceptical. There may be good advice out there about limiting saturates, but I will never follow it.

What may happen when more reactive fats end up in the adipose to any significant amount? In comparing stearic acid (C18:0) to linoleic acid (C18:2), it took one quarter the energy to break the bond on the 12th carbon. What could this mean if it is in your fat storage? Inflammation would be my starting point. It cannot help lessen inflammatory diseases.

There is a train of thought regarding eicosanoids, that some are pro-inflammatory and others not. People say the omega3 eicosanoids are good and the omega6 eicosanoids bad. An eicosanoid is a 20 carbon (I'm having to google this now) oxidised fatty acid that regulates and/or modulates body systems. There are 6 groups and the naming of them is related to where these were first found in the body.

There is a very interesting omega6 eicosanoid. The derivation (sorry this is undoubtedly the incorrect term) of eicosanoids is mirrored between the omega3 and omega6 pathways - except for one omega6 eicosanoid.

omega3 pathway: C18:3 (ALA) -> C18:4 -> C20:4 -> C20:5 (EPA)
omega6 pathway: C18:2 (LA) -> C18:3 (GLA) -> C20:3 (DGLA) -> C20:4 (ARA)
All the omega6 eicosanoids are made from ARA except for one which is from DGLA and this is apparently a desirable one to have. There is a good argument to have GLA in your diet as this (I think) easily converts to DGLA.

I find cows fascinating because they have 4 sources of fat.
1. diet
2. rumen
3. de novo lipogenesis (making of 16 carbon saturate palmitic acid)
4. udder
Even though a cow is a mammal and cannot make omega3, there is more omega3 going out than in. The wonders of the rumen microbes, which I remember accounts for 50% of a cow's dietary protein. It can't be easy being a microbe?
It is quite unfair to feed grain to a cow - it messes with the balance within the rumen with outcomes such as rumen acidosis and production of trans fats not produced when grass is eaten.

I just tried the stock. Hit it with salt and chilli.
The suede turnip actually is good in the stock.
Many savoury notes. The flavour of suede isn't jumping out at me like last night.
This will be able to make a pho, even if this may seem unusual.
And best uses will be with lamb - in a stew or gravy.
Gravy for pork? Maybe but....
Gravy for chicken? Probably not. Actually this may be really good with roast chicken. I would use white wine and keep it really simple (no bacon).

Gravy I cook most often is for lamb.
No flour. Just reducing stock.
And starting off with black bacon, then onion, garlic, red wine, stock, red currant jelly, seasoning. A hint of chilli - not to notice that it is there.

Chef Jean-Pierre - the French half - showed how to not overcook garlic. Many people over-fry garlic. If in doubt, you don't even need to fry it. Stewing it - as long as the temp gets above about 150 degrees F - will get the most flavour into the food, and not into the house where it does not much for the flavour.

Is there a thing of too much posting?
I imagine there could be a mix of dread and possibly wonder for the readers.

Eating too much liquorice over many many days:
There is an active component in liquorice which is preferentially oxidised before cortisol.
Cortisol instructs the kidneys to recycle all sodium.
Urine then has a negative charge due to Cl-
Which takes potassium from the body.
Hypokalaemia - low presence of K+ in blood.
Symptoms are muscle cramps and seizures.
Osmotic pressure moves water from lower concentrations to higher concentrations across cell boundaries. (possibly starting to become out of my depth here momentarily)
Seizures, in this scenario, is indicative of cells taking on too much fluid - and in the brain, there is limited capacity for expansion.
I understand treatment is to fix the levels of potassium in the blood and to stop eating liquorice.

There are worse scenarios:
As an example, having a diet of only beer for probably weeks (not days) will have very little intake of sodium, etc. The higher concentrations of ions will be in the cells which take on fluid. The special salts that protect the brain's central nervous system are depleted. It is important that a doctor diagnoses the hypokalaemia as acute vs chronic. Fixing a chronic hypokalaemia in this scenario by acute methods - fixing the levels of potassium in the blood - will attack the central nervous system where the special salts aren't protecting the nerves - outcome will most likely be not great if you want to use your arms and legs. I don't know if there is another way to treat this that doesn't have a very bad outcome.

Edit: I have just become unsure about the use of acute versus chronic. I think everything described above is chronic. It must be about knowing why.

My bad - I should have known to look up chronic versus acute.
Apparently the difference is about curability.
And a chronic illness can have acute symptoms.

It must be very interesting to be a doctor.
If interesting is the right word.

I think I may be overstaying my postings on PG.
But this just happened and I think is funny.
I had just rolled a cig.
And I had just poured a glass of red.
There was a definite moment where I wanted both at once and the red won, but I felt the need to use the lighter.
I didn't use it - that would be crazy.

Lucky I don't have a cat.
Light the cat, put the cig out.
Actually that half works.

Not for the cat mind you.

One more - why not?
I feel catharsis through this.

My thinking is strongly associated with lighting design.
There are fundamentals in lighting design to get absolutely correct.
Power, weight, budget, equipment.

Then there is the middle ground of finding a good experience with people.

And then castle in the air stuff.

As I have lit Master Builder by Ibsen, I am not sure why "Castles in the air, built on a solid foundation" means something not attenable. To me, it means how creation is done.

Consider how a shift may happen in science - a shift of paradigm.
Isn't this exactly a castle in the air built on a solid foundation?

Edit: Ibsen, as far as I know, was making a point about dreaming of something versus what is real. And in Master Builder, expressed that with the above. Now I am thinking this is only about not matching your actions to reality - and not to the creative process, which always makes castles in the air from a solid foundation.

I have foxes that pass by my house at night.
I live right next to parkland about 4km from the CBD.
When we had the 9pm curfew (I know many people are horrified by that, but here it was just a thing for a while) foxes were owning the streets at night. I only saw one fox at a time - and at least 2 different foxes.

The first time I spied a fox, was when I was sitting in my front doorway at about 11pm and a fox was walking along the street. And I had some fun. "Hey!". It stopped and looked about 10 metres to my left, not quite believing what it had just heard. After half a minute or so, it started walking again. "Hey!" It stopped and again looked about 10 metres to my left. After another half a minute I revealed myself from the darkness, grinning maniacally and puffing smoke. I really had it's attention now that it could finally work out where I was. It came closer, not believing the apparition before it. It was confused and inquisitive. After a couple of minutes, it made a fox equivalent sound of a cross between an exacerbated sigh and a "Hrrummph" and walked off.

The night before last, stuff got pretty weird. A youngish fox was walking past along the street (curfew is done now) and I said "Hey". It made it's way quickly to the park, sat down and watched. I realised I had a cooked sausage in the fridge - got half of it and threw it to the fox. It got scared by this and ran off. The sausage landed about 3 metres from the park's edge. Next thing, a cat purposely enters from stage right and sits down next to the sausage looking into the park. The fox reappears, and the cat, cool as mustard, stares down the young fox. The cat wins and the fox disappears. The cat exits stage left. Then I hear from the darkness a fox bark. Then more fox barks - many of them. It was definitely saying "What BS! This is so unfair!" I think the cat did this just because it could. I walked across the street, picked up the half sausage and through it into the darkness.

I've got an even better fox story.
Happened about 30 years ago.
In university days, sitting out in the middle of royal park at night was something to do - chilling out.
I was sitting there, and just started to eat a banana, when a fox moseyed up to me - about 4-5 metres away - which is when I insulted it by throwing a piece of banana to it. The fox replied to the stupid human - to communicate what it thought of this - in the most unequivocal way possible. I kid you not. And just as quickly, I threw the banana peel and hit it in the head. A perfect interaction. I like foxes - intelligent, crude (when they need to be) and honest.

I try to get the best information.
I may have an unusual way of doing it.
I find someone who knows what they are talking about and that becomes fully incorporated.

The important value is independent thinking.
And aligning with excellent thinking.

People who know what they are talking about and I fully incorporate:
Mary Enig
Thomas Sowell
James Lindsay (has tenure in potential for me)
Jordan Peterson (don't poke this man with a stick or anything - he will take on the whole world. And I think will win by brutal understanding of what is real.)

It is true, that my McIntosh integrated with tubes at the front end sounds like a heavenly choir, with wings golden beating autumnal colour in summer. Strings in an orchestra to be what a heart in love could aim for. With what love feels like and has little words for, just is with listening to my MA12000 - both opens up the possibility for wonder and also to be broken. As to be vulnerable, is for all things - to be divine.

Mary Enig's book "Know Your Fats" is an excellent book on nutrition, with the main focus on fats. My thinking about fats has become that the dietary intake of fats is about flavour, purpose and evolution. It makes very little sense to label saturated fats as 'bad' considering the de novo lipogenesis which is C16:0 - palmitic acid. Millennia of evolution across multiple species that have succeeded, are not going to have a fat storage system which is 'bad'. As I understand, all the science is there to take down the concept that saturates are bad for you because they are saturated. LDL? Now we understand that there are 2 types of LDL - small higher density (not so good) and fluffy lower density (good). My doctor told me that statins have - I don't have the correct term - a number of 104 - how many people are treated with them to get 1 actual good result. I understand the number across all anti-depressants is 7 - which I think is too high for this to be a medication for people - particularly for chronic depression.
There is a researcher looking beyond the Cartesian model of brain/mind and body. I think as we understand those 2 better, we will be able to better connect them.
What I see as the main thing to focus on relating to systemic issues in the body is inflammation. Diet is one of the main things to look at here. High omega6 refined seed oils.

Thomas Sowell is a brilliant and concise thinker. His ideas can be a building block for all thinking par excellence.

James Lindsay goes into much detail about delusion of ideas right now.

And Jordan Peterson relishes a challenge. He describes the type of personality that needs to do something industrious to keep sane. I think Jordan may be in good part this type of person.

I think the character Borat may be one of the all-time greatest.
And it works because he is super friendly and super positive.
And has no concern to consider judgment on himself.

I love that the actor found out that the PM of the country he was hazing was in town and at the time the PM was elsewhere to make a case for the worth of the country, Borat descended to outside the embassy and had a press conference. Thankyou SBC!

Has anyone watched him accept this award (genius!)

I think DSM (5 now) is very unsatisfactory in describing personality disorders.
There is so much overlap, and it is unable to describe complexity - which everyone is.

(aside: The ultimate goal of intersectionality will be individuals - we live in hope and pigs may fly singing)

I hope I am remembering this correctly - an orthonormal coordinate system.
X, Y, Z.
A description of space that describes position with no more, nor less dimensions necessary to be complete.

The 5 personality traits are interesting - but doesn't resonate with me.
What does agreeableness even mean?
Agreeable with other people, or agreeable with yourself?

My starting point will be these:
The lens through which we observe and interact.
Placement of lens information to self.

Edit: Does anyone know of the Physics holographic principle of gathering information?

I am getting to understand a deeper meaning of Popper's "A tolerant society to be tolerant except intolerance"
One need to be careful to declare intolerance.
As there is small gap between intolerance and a declaration of it.

I have made up my mind.
I declare intolerance!

War is coming for people who think intolerantly.
Critical Social Justice to name one.

You shall not pass!

I am intrigued to what may describe people.
Any discipline - any input.

A mathematician has the goal of proving it - which isn't in any other endeavour.
Maths is the only place you find true.

What does a mathematician think about people?

Where do you start with a problem which is "un-solvable"?

Yes! excellent.
How random should it be? Boolean motion? Or wearing pants the wrong way?
I mean I could walk my walk clockwise, but that would be crazy :)

I have been in psychotherapy for many years specifically to learn how to wear pants.
I have mastered the putting them on part, but it is difficult to know the right way.
Yes this is a joke - I don't have pants.

The funniest statement about my previous career is to define it as the opposite.
Anyone can turn on a light, but it takes a lighting designer to keep it off.
Yes, a lightning designer's job is more about not lighting than lighting.

Now, looking for the next career, I wonder at what job I can do similar to not lighting something? I could be overqualified for politics.

What was awesome about lighting is the layers of discipline.
You start with objective absolutes and it becomes subjective.
Which generally mirrored my connection with the work.

You have a theatre, budget, equipment, power, weight, time.
And from that, becomes something beyond any of those.

I am an old school lighting designer - not because I am that old - but because this is the way to properly light something. It is about colour relativism. With colours chosen to be mixed together - or not. LEDs just don't fit in with the method of choice. They are too vague.

Edit: What I am saying is the vast opportunities for colour that LEDs give gets in the way of making specific choices and from those choices, learning from them. And then there is the issue with them 'kicking in' at 1% which is jarring.

Art needs restrictions considering how infinite it is. LEDs rub me up the wrong way because it allows complacency.

And the colour is rubbish too - that probably should have been my first point.

One more rant - why not?

Toscas are lemmings - they will jump.

I saw the safety mat leaning against the wall and I put it in place.
An hour later, Tosca, who didn't understand the set, fell.

Moral: Theatres are dangerous - always correct something that is simple to do. It doesn't matter if it is your job or not. Just do it.
Thank God I did that - it is bad enough for someone untrained to fall on this, but if it wasn't there....?
Oh yes, Toscas want to leap - it could be an affliction.

Just watched this.
About the 'scout mindset'
What is covered here must be related to confirmation bias.
I think this is about not getting personal with ideas.
The worth of new thinking is much more than the attachment to an idea.
https://youtu.be/3MYEtQ5Zdn8

I think this paper is in similar territory.
Prevalence induced concept change in human judgement.
https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/science.aap8731

It has been a while since I read that, but I understand that survival drives us to find danger - and our perception of danger doesn't switch off - we look for it and find it.

So you are saying it will take a brand new way of thinking as a lighting designer to use led bulbs instead of the bulbs currently in use.

So you are saying it will take a brand new way of thinking as a lighting designer to use led bulbs instead of the bulbs currently in use.

You found the flaw. It will take a different type of discipline. LEDs - the ones I worked with - RGB - are for backlight. It can be too easy to throw them into the design and let whatever you feel like using in colour to be found in the plotting session.
One of my best lighting designs, I only used the LEDs with one colour - orange (red + green). And I used LEDs because of power and control restrictions.
What LEDs take from the design process is the joy of working with colour.
To make a choice and be thrown completely into the choice.
When you have put up the lights, coloured and focussed them - and discover some horror with the colour choice when plotting the states - you will not be able to change the colours.
LEDs allow change on the fly.
Why would I want no choice of colour in creating the states?
Most people would think it better to be able to choose the colour when plotting.
I think for me, it is about reigning in the complexity.
And locking in choices before the extreme intensity of creating the lighting states.

My lighting designs were very colour specific - I felt the soul being sucked from the process with LEDs. Maybe LEDs are better now with WORGB, but I would still feel the same way about using them.

Maybe it is about CRI? Except with RGB LEDs we are talking quite saturated.

Maybe I am just a prude? They get in the way of my joy of working with colour - it being something tangible - I choose the colour and I cut out what is needed for the lights. Maybe I miss the ceremony of doing this?

The thing with the LEDs is that they don't marry well with conventionals.
The colour temp of the blue is so high, to make it extremely jarring when used with the colour temp of the low saturated colour used in standard fixtures to light faces, etc. You need to mix in green to 'pull it back'.
I suppose one issue I have had is budget - budget hasn't allowed to hire LEDs bright enough. So the colours chosen can often be by what has a high enough level.

I couldn't justify complaining about LEDs if they were bright enough and had a reasonably high colour-rendering-index white light. 2 of those whites would be ideal - incandescent colour temp and daylight colour temp. And ideally the blue to be not so close to the absolute deepest blue you would ever use, so it can better mix with red and green.

I just nearly died laughing.
I am still laughing.
Installing a new toilet seat and lid.
The holes in the toilet are about 10 mm too far apart - even with the adjustments within the brackets.
The holes in the brackets that join the seat and lid with the toilet have a square cross-section.
I can turn the brackets by 90 degrees.
It doesn't work if I turn both by 90 degrees as they are too close together now.
But it does work if I turn one of them by 90 degrees.
Which makes the seat and lid off by about 5 degrees from alignment with the toilet.
Dying.

Edit: It is extra funny because I got a seat and lid with a design on it - not bog standard as it were. Awesome seat and lid - beyond rubbish installation.

A couple of hours later I wondered why the toilet seat was so funny.

Something that is funny are these episodes from "Comic Strip Presents"
80s humour with Rik Mayall, Adrian Edmondson, French & Saunders, Nigel Planar, etc.

Bad News Tour (similar to This Is Spinal Tap - and a year before it)
A Fistful of Travellers' Cheques.

I don't want to contaminate the Thought of the Day thread.
This probably doesn't even qualify as a thought.
I think with cats around the home, it isn't so much if the cat is in or out, but it is about the alignment of the cat's wishes with in/out status. What I mean is that a cat can be on one end of the scale, happy to be either in or out OR at the other end of the scale, ALWAYS wanting the other one. Or anywhere in-between.
I feel there could be some kind of quantum computer that could be harnessed here if we only could get enough cats in the indeterminate state of in/out. We would need to not know if the cat is in or out AND the cat would need to not know which it wants.
Edit: My bad. The normal state of affairs is a cat doesn't know which one it wants. With quantum and cats wanting in/out, indeterminacy is though determinacy?
2nd edit: I suspect a cat door is some kind of quantum tunnel.

To think is, what it is.
The bounds on thought are limitless.
The negotiation with society on thinking has bounds.
The bounds need to catch what is egregious manifestation of thoughts.
To charge thinking with aggression on the basis of different thinking is egregious.
And we find ourselves with Popper - the statements he made about tolerance.

We are cooking now!
This is warm!
4 computers in my loungeroom and it is summer.
I am reducing the capacities of my GPUs.
Yes it is Melbourne - not Darwin.
I will shut my GPUs down by the 19th.
The 19th because I will be about a day from double ruby WW on the 7th.
So close before the challenge!

Sad to say, probably the most misunderstood thing about quantum mechanics: there is no "indeterminate state". There are only 2 states, and THE CAT IS BOTH IN AND OUT AT THE SAME TIME, which is the superposition of states, not a state in itself. This is our conscious collapsed-state bias showing, that if the thing isn't this or that, then it must be something else.

I would say the issue is my use of the word state.
Determinacy is just a word describing knowing something.
As far as I know, I get the cat in the box thought experiment.
The cat is alive AND dead until observed.
Though if you were to actually carry out this experiment, alive AND dead aren't the most accurate - really furious AND dead might be better. Not to say that the cat wouldn't be annoyed about being dead. And if a cat could be annoyed while dead, it would find a way - particularly if locked in a box.
Really this experiment is about if a dead cat can be annoyed.

With 9 lives, a cat in a box can factor a 9-bit number using Shor's Algorithm. To factor a mega-digit composite number, you would need around 300,000 cats in the same box. Good luck, putting just one cat in a box can be a painful chore, and at the big reveal, the cat is so annoyed it wouldn't tell you the answer if it could.

I love the idea of (in potentia) 300,000 cats in a box. And the kind of nervous twitch one might get from such advanced cat boxings.

I'm probably amusing myself too much.
I just re-read my previous post and I think it has a bit of an ominous vibe to it.
I meant that after meticulous work with cats - To not know their parameters - I reckon someone would be on edge and just needs to know where the cats are at.
The other reading is that this person has snapped and the neighbour's cat will pay.
Disclaimer: No cats have been harmed as yet observed. The humour is created using Schrödinger cats - they are both harmed and not harmed.

It is possibly a curiosity that I can make a far better case for SFAs (saturated fatty acids) being good than the studies done in the 60s - which threw us into what I perceive as a mess.
I know this sounds cynical, or disingenuous toward University-based advice.
There never has been an issue with eating SFAs.

Why should a University say a food is good for you when it isn't?
Money.

Sticking it right up 'em.

It is not possible for me to eat high omega6 oils.

This is the ultimate kicker - you cannot have both SFAs and PFAs as 'bad for you'. You need to choose one or the other. And I know for certain that having high omega6 foods in your diet is a very bad idea.

I feel the need to de-bunk (attempt to):
No causal connection has been made between both SFAs & cholesterol and cholesterol and inflammation of the intereal walls of the arties. It never has been shown. Ever.

Improvement on health is by managing your insulin resistance.
Look up Dr Ekberg. And Dr Berg.
Insulin resistance is insidious. The crap food that causes insulin resistance has less nutritional value which is less absorbed to the cells due to insulin resistance.

This thread should go sideways.
Hunter. S. Thompson.
I think it was McGovern that said that Thompson's coverage of the 1971 politicals was both the least factually correct and the most accurate. I love this.
HST came up with a way to do what he most enjoyed which was drug experimentation, and found a way to do this and write about what he was seeing. Gonzo journalism is quite brilliant.
One of the best writings ever is by HST:

“Strange memories on this nervous night in Las Vegas. Five years later? Six? It seems like a lifetime, or at least a Main Era—the kind of peak that never comes again. San Francisco in the middle sixties was a very special time and place to be a part of. Maybe it meant something. Maybe not, in the long run . . . but no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant. . . .

History is hard to know, because of all the hired bullshit, but even without being sure of “history” it seems entirely reasonable to think that every now and then the energy of a whole generation comes to a head in a long fine flash, for reasons that nobody really understands at the time—and which never explain, in retrospect, what actually happened.

My central memory of that time seems to hang on one or five or maybe forty nights—or very early mornings—when I left the Fillmore half-crazy and, instead of going home, aimed the big 650 Lightning across the Bay Bridge at a hundred miles an hour wearing L. L. Bean shorts and a Butte sheepherder's jacket . . . booming through the Treasure Island tunnel at the lights of Oakland and Berkeley and Richmond, not quite sure which turn-off to take when I got to the other end (always stalling at the toll-gate, too twisted to find neutral while I fumbled for change) . . . but being absolutely certain that no matter which way I went I would come to a place where people were just as high and wild as I was: No doubt at all about that. . . .

There was madness in any direction, at any hour. If not across the Bay, then up the Golden Gate or down 101 to Los Altos or La Honda. . . . You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning. . . .

And that, I think, was the handle—that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn’t need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting—on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. . . .

So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark—that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.”

Beautiful.

I think I'm going to ban myself from posting about fats again.

What will be fun to talk about is that I have started buying 70s ties again.
The worse they are the better.

I generally don't want printed ties unless the pattern is extraordinary.
I want different textures of materials helping with the pattern.

I've got one here I bought from someone in Russia.
It is both wonderfully dreary and failing to be quiet.
An exploration in brown, beige and a masterful addition of 2 greys.
The lining is so depressing - dark grey - it has gone out the other side to be loud.
I would love to know what was in the design process.
The pattern is psychedelic without colour.
Lets try and make it loud but the quietest loud?

One would look 'superb' matched with a mission brown suit.
Though using the word superb here might make the word explode in the dictionary.

I also have now realised that I need to find ties more like 5 inches wide.
I've recently bought ties 4 to 4.5 inches wide.

My 2nd widest tie arrived a week or 2 ago - 6.5 inches wide.
The wider tie is 8 inches wide - an abomination I made up from 3 ties.
