Sorry, I should have included potters. They are disreputable folks--and you have a double whammy against you--a potter who is an English major!

And don't you play an accordion?

Triple it. Where's a steady-handed librarian when you need him? Probably asking if he can fire the cannons for his father-in-law. Making himself useful, as ever.

Is this standard of excitement to be maintained every 100 posts for the next thousand posts????

I think 13231 looks pretty but sounds confused. 13331 will is kinda cool, 13431 is arithmetically of interest, but the rest...

Back to lurkin' for me.

...a phonon is a particle of vibrational energy....

They're the things that make cellular phones jiggle when you turn them to "vibrate" mode.

Hey!! Talk about a hoot; my company President just named me as a co-inventor on a patent application filed with the USPTO this afternoon. I am stoked. Or perhaps I should say "it just kilns me".

Remember, BWL -- responsibility doesn't kiln people. Bullets kill people. Also shards of flying ceramic, after an explosion. But what doesn't kiln you will make you stronger, anyway.

Hah! You left out "potters"! The only time you'll hear "potter" and "responsible" used in the same sentence is in something like, "The potter was responsible for the building burning down." But what do you expect? Nobody who makes his living playing in mud and then playing with fire is going to get a lot of respect.

From PhysOrg:



Scientists have discovered something new about exotic particles called solitons. Since the 1980s, scientists have known that solitons can carry an electrical charge when traveling through certain organic polymers. A new study now suggests that solitons have intricate internal structures.

Scientists may one day use this information to put the particles to work in molecular electronics and artificial muscles, said Ju Li, assistant professor of materials science and engineering at Ohio State University.

Li explained that each soliton is made up of an electron surrounded by other particles called phonons. Just as a photon is a particle of light energy, a phonon is a particle of vibrational energy.

The new study suggests that the electron inside a soliton can attain different energy states, just like the electron in a hydrogen atom.

"While we know that such internal electronic structures exist in all atoms, this is the first time anyone has shown that such structures exist in a soliton," Li said.

The soliton's quantum mechanical properties -- including these newly discovered energy states -- are important because they affect how the particle carries a charge through organic materials such as conducting polymers at the molecular level.

"These extra electronic states will have an effect -- we just don't know right now if it will be for better or worse," he said.

Li and his longtime collaborators from MIT published their findings in a recent issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

Why do you suppose that is so? Is it because they do nothing, only gathering the traces of others' actions in the world, thus making them safely neutral, if not neutered, on the great stage of life?

LOL! Actually, I am just projecting. Sigh. Oh, the deeds I have imagined and not raised a hand to do would fill a book. Perhaps I should do that, and send it to Rapaire.

How strange the night, oh wan the hour,
That sees no bloom or bursting flower
Here on the thread, which 'til this day
Was ever thrown aloft, in play;
And now, like some betrayed companion
SInks to the lowest Mudcat canyon,
And waves the clouds and sly farewell,
As Mom approaches Drop Off Hell.
Oh, no! Good friends, let i'ne'er be so!
Your hearts and minds to Mother show,
And turn your wits to work, and then,
Loving and laughing raise her up again.

Lines On A Piss Poor Poet


Worthy of McGonegal, I declare;
How strange to find his talent rare
And long thought happily, finally, dead,
Raising again its cheerful head
To haunt a later, different time
With equal awkwardness of rhyme
And stilted pace; enough, enough!
The world's well-gifted with such stuff.
But let it be, to each man's choosing
To read what he finds most amusing.
And let us also add, I wot,
To not read what amuseth not.

Claracile Fortinez.
Alabaster Poems
Whiteshell-On-Thunk, 1938

A keg of spikes--brings to mind the wooden kegs that used to be along the railroad track at our remote lake cabin when I was a child. The rail started with the coal mining and logging in the area and became a regularly used trunk line for many years. We parked beside the road and walked down a path, across the railroad tracks, and into our back gate to the cabin on Lake Whatcom. As children we used to play around the tracks (only two trains in the morning and two in the evening, as I recall, so it was pretty safe). We'd pick up old spikes and take a barrel or two home if they weren't picked up after track work.

So, naming a beverage keg "Spike" might be a great blast from the past, but I'm afraid that consuming any of it would leave me fit to be tied.

Next. . .

Keg of what? Blasting powder? Nails? Root beer? Or...well, it certainly wouldn't be whiskey because everyone knows that the Legion is renowned as a leader in the Temperance Movement. One of its mottoes is "Down With The Liquor!" Another is "Away With Rum!" Another is "Throw Away The Corks!" After all, on the periodic fishing trips north to Alberta they drink Canada dry.

You may find, about thirty-three hundred universes over, one in which we were born siblings and shared all the marbles.

Condolences on your loss, Mike.

Meanwhile, in news of a somewhat related but far less serious matter,
I've decided that I like the number "13031" so much that I'm going to wait until then to be reincarnated. Sure, that's 11,025 years but, hey, I'll be dead so who's counting. One year, ten years or a million years are all the same when you're dead. Or so they say....

I just hope my attempts to make "13031" into a cultural icon don't backfire on me and result in so many people wanting to be born that year that they can't squeeze us all in. Maybe a backup number would be appropriate....

Did you know that you can get a pass to DRIVE around Arlington if you have a relative (like an Uncle or FIL or parent) buried there? 'Strue, and it annoys the HECK out of the tourists who have to take that little train or walk.

My father in law was similarly honored at Arlington, and the formality, the gravitas of it all was enough to make you turn Republican. It was a very sobering and reflective afternoon, walking behind the caisson and observing the punctilious propriety of the well-drilled procedures. All the honor was well-deserved.

But on reflection I would prefer to see a similar decorum afforded to those who had defended freedom by exercising it in other ways, less familiar to nationalist concerns.
