• Bite My Shiny Metal Ass

    I suppose we could have an argument on whether or not it is a good idea to construct intelligent machines that mimic the function of living beings, including humans, but what would be the point? Robots are here, whether we like it or not. There are millions of robots already, and there will be billions very soon. And for good reasons - industrial robots have contributed to the largest and fastest increases in manufacturing productivity since the steam engine, and this is just the beginning. And it is not only that robots will increasingly replace less efficient human manual labor - the most transformative changes (and for some people the most frightening) will come when robots can perform tasks that humans cannot perform at all, due to size, weight, speed, or precision, but also when they can do things that we have not yet imagined. For example, deep underground or under the oceans, or in outer space, robots will be an absolute necessity if we are to fully explore, and exploit, these environments. Indirectly, all of our lives have already been improved by robots, but you can, and should, learn how to construct and program your own robots. Along with machine learning and artificial intelligence, robotics is one of the most critical skills to learn, as the impact of these machines will greatly affect our lives, for good or evil. And it isn't that hard - check out the links and start building your own robot helper!

  • YOU Will Build The Roads

    Degidio’s

    I know, I know - where we are going, we won't need any roads. But until we get that spaceship built, we might need a few roads to haul our rocket fuel to the launchpad. And maybe some other stuff. Fortunately, you don't need to be a rocket scientist to build a road. And you don't need to spend your life savings to build one. Roads are simple, cheap, and you can make them quick if you have the right equipment. And there is usually lots of road equipment sitting around rusting that you can borrow, rent, or buy. You can get by with a dirt road if you don't use it excessively, and keep the weight down. And you might not be able to use it at all for a few weeks in the spring. But if you want an all-weather road that can handle some heavy trucks occasionally, you will want to build a gravel road, which, by the way, is still the most common road construction material in most of the world. If you pay attention to details, including the base soil quality and build your road in layers, you can have a road that will last as long or longer than an asphalt or concrete road (with some maintenance). And if you use some of the new geotextiles and grid products, you can make the road even more stable and long-lasting. And just think, when you are done building your road, when any Muggle asks the most common stupid question, you can answer them!

  • I'm Mad As Hell And I'm Not Going To Take It Anymore

    I don't know if you've noticed, but there seems to be a lot of neurotic, anxious, fearful, and depressed people out there. And not just people who suffer from serious illnesses, or who are poor or homeless, or have recently gone through a major tragedy in their lives like the death of a child or loved one. There are many millions of seemingly normal people in this country who are living out their lives in, as Thoreau called it, quiet desperation. They have jobs, families, friends, a comfortable place to live, and good health. But inside, they feel like their lives are meaningless and they are powerless to affect any positive change in their lives. So they just live without much joy or purpose, trying not to think too much about the future, moving day after day, weekend after weekend, and year after year closer to final oblivion. I understand it - one of the consequences of "civilization" is that a very tiny number of people - you can call them the "owners" - have all the power and wealth and make all the important decisions, and the vast majority of people - you can call them "citizens" or "slaves" - have no power or wealth and make none of the important decisions that affect their lives. No wonder people are anxious and depressed! And it is worse if you are one of the increasing minority of people who like to think. Thinking people are much more aware of how badly they are getting fucked over, and how bleak the future is. You can of course solve this problem, at least temporarily, by drinking heavily, escaping into endless games and entertainment, or fucking up your mind even more than it already is with anti-depressant drugs. At least we all get to go to hell in our own way I suppose. There is another choice, but it isn't as much fun as getting drunk every weekend, pretending you are a wizard, or screwing with your brain chemistry until you are an emotionless zombie. In fact it can be dangerous. The benefit of this alternative approach is, however, that you just might gain the strength and power to actually take action to change, find purpose and meaning and once again experience the joy of life. Maybe it is time to get pissed off.

  • To Slay The Dragon

    Psycho Suzi's Motor Lounge

    (Note that because of the holiday weekend this is a combined meetup of both The Green Anchor and Pig's Eye Meetups and replaces the usual meetups this week. As we have in past years, we are meeting on Sunday morning at Psycho Suzi's in NE Minneapolis - hope to see you there!) Ancient stories contain many archetypal images that are repeated in countless myths and legends through the centuries and millennia. We have looked at some of these already, including the great World Serpent and the Great Mother. These archetypes are symbols of earth, nature, the cycle of life. But there is another great archetype that is quite different - the hero. Rather than a symbol of the great universal forces of nature and reproduction, the hero is the archetype of rebellion, of independence, of the primacy of the ego and of individual consciousness. In the myths, he is almost always represented by the masculine, which both in myth and in our psyche, represents the ego and the conscious part of our mind. The reason we see this archetype as a hero, is that he must break free from the restrictions of the collective in order to become an individual, develop his own abilities and skills, and discover his purpose in life. He must embark on a journey of self-discovery which is dangerous both physically and mentally as he is continually obstructed by the symbols of primeval nature, including the great serpent represented by the dragon, the old matriarchal religions of the mother goddess, and by "law and order" and "civilization". Thus the hero must fight against terrible and powerful forces that oppose his desire to discover himself and the meaning of life. To the extent the hero defeats his opponents he receives both treasure and enlightenment, which allows him to return to his land and people with greater abilities and confidence so that he can help others also become strong and enlightened individuals.

  • Please State The Nature Of The Medical Emergency

    Out in space, there are no (or won't be for quite some time), convenient Urgent Care clinics or ERs open 24/7. This might actually be a good thing, considering the expense of even mediocre health care and poor, incomplete, or total misdiagnoses by health care "professionals". Just think of the money you will save and the botched surgeries you will avoid! But you will still need health care, and you will need to take more personal responsibility for your overall health, and may need to act as your own "first responder" (you always have been anyway, you just won't have to dial that number - probably another good thing). What you will need is personal and portable diagnostic tools that are better at figuring out what is wrong with you, and with providing useful information on how to fix your health problem. Although these tools are in their infancy, the combination of improved and miniaturized sensors and databases that use machine learning to rapidly sort through medical data are making these tools a near future possibility, rather than having to wait until the 23nd century. As usual, the medical-industrial bureaucracy are doing their best to slow down or stop as much innovation in this area as possible. But in other parts of the world, where health care is primitive or non-existent, these tools can help save the lives of millions, so we are likely to see the biggest advancements in this field outside of the USA. Let's see what has been happening in the last few years, and what is on the horizon!

  • It is Running!

    Degidio’s

    Sometimes it is the unexpected that prompts engineering discoveries that can change the course of history, in this case the development of the internal combustion engine. We know now that you don't need a spark to set fuel on fire, but Rudolf Diesel proved it by causing his first prototype engine to explode just by injecting fuel into a combustion chamber containing highly compressed air. While alternative and renewable (whatever that means) fuels and energy sources are the big news nowadays, it might be wise to remember that the vast majority of heavy freight transportation, by land and sea, is moved using diesel engines. So far nobody has attempted to seriously argue that solar and wind power can replace these massive and highly efficient (particularly compared to wind and solar) power sources. Yet the noisy, shrill, and increasingly irrational propaganda advocating the end of "fossil" fuels continues. In many parts of the world, including most of Africa and much of India, Asia, and the Middle East, most electrical power generation is accomplished by using diesel generators. Governments continue to push for very expensive, centralized, energy grids, but the people seem to do just fine generating power for themselves, their businesses, and perhaps the local neighborhood. Yet the misinformation continues, claiming that diesel engines are dirtier and pollute more than gasoline engines, but we have known for decades that, because the diesel combustion cycle is longer and more efficient than a gasoline engine, the amount of pollutants, particularly that nasty poison CO2, is much less with a diesel. And if you are concerned about nitrogen oxide, it is easily converted back to nitrogen and oxygen, which, as you know, is the majority of what we breathe. Diesel engines can be a very good solution for those of use who want to disengage as much as possible from the centralized systems of theft, since they are very efficient and relatively inexpensive to operate. The engines themselves can be expensive, but they are built to last many years and are much simpler and easier to maintain and repair. In addition, they are a natural supplement to solar, wind, hydro or other intermittent power generation sources as they can be a very efficient way to re-charge battery systems and, during the times of the year where those energy sources fail, diesel generators can operate reliably for weeks at a time, or longer if needed. If you are looking for a reliable, strong, sexy, and good looking partner that will never let you down, you can try dating apps, social media, or hanging out in bars. Or you can avoid all that crap and just get yourself a diesel. I guarantee you will never regret it.

    Nobody likes it when someone lies to them - at least, they don't like it when they find out they have been lied to! Well, maybe, but maybe not, at least not all the time. Maybe only sometimes even. When you are looking to buy a product that you might not absolutely need but really want, a bit of exaggeration helps you feel good about your purchase. You are attracted to another person and want to let them know you are mentally stable, kind, generous, and of course physically attractive with lots of energy, you put your best "face" forward - it is only natural! And when tragedy happens in your life - and yeah, it always happens sooner or later in the best of all possible worlds - your god or goddess is there to comfort you and tell you that things will get better. But most importantly, when you are afraid of war, plague, famine, poverty, homelessness, and your neighbor, it is a good thing that there are politicians who can lie to you so skillfully that you want to believe them, even when you know they are full of shit. And you keep believing them, even after they prove to you they are liars and after they lie to you again! At least this seems to be true (heh) in our "civilization". And the more you dissimulate, so to speak, the easier it is to tell more lies. And pretty soon your entire life is based on bullshit. This is why the ancient Greeks and Romans had a low opinion of actors and in most cases forbade them to hold public office - they realized that these were experts in lying, and so it is likely that they would find it very easy to lie to the public. You might of course contrast this with how much the public extolls, nay, even worships actors in our culture. Yes I know that nobody is perfect, and sometimes we lie for what we believe are good reasons - but when your life is just a mask, who are you really? And when a culture, or a nation, is nothing but a mask, what is it really?

    Today we look at economic interventionism - the idea that, left to itself, the free market will produce undesirable results, like prosperity, full employment, profits, lower prices, and a stable money supply. Some people think that a mix of markets and regulations is the most beneficial and stable economic system. But some people think that interventionism leads ultimately to socialism, a totally planned economy, and economic collapse. Some people would be right.

  • Homeostasis Is A Harsh Mistress

    It ain't easy surviving inside our meat suits. Even on Terra, supposedly the place that was made Just For Us™ - or at least where we evolved to survive - it can be pretty dicey at times. It gets too hot and we die, it gets too cold and we freeze to death, too little atmospheric pressure, or too much, and we die. If the percentages of blood gases get too far off, we asphyxiate. Not enough energy intake, or water intake, we die. We get punctured with a big enough hole, we bleed out and die. Not to mention all the internal systems that are constantly monitoring and regulating blood sugar, blood pressure, oxygen levels, mineral balance and a thousand other things. It is amazing that we stay alive for even a day! And what is worse, most animals on this planet seem to be better equipped to survive than we are! But we do have our secret advantage of course - that's right, our giant oversized brains. Well it would have been an advantage if people used them, anyway. So it is fortunate that over the millennia a few brainiacs, no doubt mocked, scorned, and persecuted by the rest of humanity, have figured out that clothing and other portable items can not only help us avoid being repelled by each others ugliness and in some cases help motivate us to perpetuate the species, but can also help regulate temperature, avoid punctures and wounds, carry food and water, and generally make life more comfortable and survivable. In the last few seconds (evolutionary speaking), we have added cybernetic systems that give us a bit more room to maneuver in the extreme cold and heat, in the atmosphere, and in the oceans, as well as make it more difficult for animals, accidents, or most commonly other humans, to put holes in us. But our adventure has just begun my meatbag friends! In order to continue to move beyond those environments that restrict us from exploring the rest of our planet, as well as the rest of the universe, we will need to wear the appropriate outfits if we want to get into the best parties (which are not in our solar system by the way). Yes I know that you like your frilly things, your Brooks Brothers, your unwashed denim, your spandex. But in the future, if you want your designs to appear on the runways in the fashion centers of the Andromeda Galaxy, you will need to get with the haute couture of the rest of the universe.

  • An Easier Way For People To Die

    "Chemistry means the difference between poverty and starvation and the abundant life." - Spock (from some computer game) “There's only zero of you,” said the Queen of the Ants. In ant arithmetic, there are only two numbers: Zero, which means anything less than a million, and Some." - from The Diamond Age Chemistry is an amazing science, and I am continually fascinated by the infinite ways that matter can be combined using less than 100 basic elements. And when molecules react with one another, and with living things, at various pressures and temperatures, wonderful things can happen, as well as horrible things. When states want to murder people, they rarely use the same methods as your typical mentally ill individual who kills one, maybe two people at a time. The state prides itself on efficiency, and thus develops way to kill people by the millions, or at least thousands. Chemical weapons are one of the most favored tools of murder by states, and only states produce them and use them to kill many people quickly and easily. Sure, a neglected and vindictive wife might deservedly poison her wealthy husband, but for the most part these poisons have been around for thousands of years and are available almost anywhere, if you are interested in acquiring them. Only states stockpile thousands of tons of incredibly nasty and dangerous chemicals whose only use is to kill those ants that refuse to be enslaved. And they have used them quite often in recent history. Let's learn the history of one of the most effective types of mass murder weapons, which can kill very quickly, yet not destroy the valuable property of the slaves, and dissipates rapidly so the state can acquire this new found property without delay.
