The real reason Betelgeuse is going to blow up is because the Galactic Overlord has never liked the star's name. A zillion times bigger than our Sun and the best name we humans can come up with is Betelgeuse? It's hard to spell and sounds like a joke. And what does it even mean?

The GO has decided to get rid of Betelgeuse and replace it with something else, in hopes we'll give the new thing a more dignified name.

Like Bryce or Heather.

HH flew the farthest (87.4 meters, metres in Canada, with SS in second place at only 67.0 meters).

A transplant drug with anti-ageing properties has been shown to rejuvenate the oral health of old mice.
The drug, called RAPAMYCIN,
regenerated the bone in which teeth are embedded, restored the mouth microbiome to a youthful state and reduced inflammation.

It is the first time any treatment has been shown to rejuvenate oral health, says team leader Matt Kaeberlein at the University of Washington in Seattle. “We could actually see spots where new bone was growing around the teeth.”

Just like family Storage lockers, large warhouses loose a lease or goes bankrupt. If you have capitol you can operate a dollar bush chain on the internet and sell on the business model of building 19 without real estate costs..

A clever buyer of distresed or abandoned merchandise can sustain a warehouse, shipping dept and internet workers almost like Amazon. Acquire crap at a maximum of 5 cents on the dollar and sell at 25. Expand to China for other abandoned crap when the time is right.

Call it 'INSANE JANE' AND SELL AT UNBELIEVABLE PRICES.

Finding the unlikely cheap large warehouse is key

Dollar General and Family Dollar have retained their names but they gave up on charging $1 for everything ages ago. There was another sort of dollar store, usually a real hodge-podge of stuff, a lot of it imported, and the owners were usually immigrants. Those places had some real treasures at times. I think the ones I used to shop at have all closed (probably because I'm not the only one who abandoned them for Big Lots years ago.)

Mom!

I have horrible news! The Dollar Tree store no longer carries Mrs. Freshley's "Delicious Deals" mini-donuts! I suppose the wholesale price has gone up to where Dollar Tree can no longer sell them for a dollar. (They're $1.50 elsewhere.)

I suppose that's what happens when one's business model is "Everything's a Dollar". Even at very moderate inflation rates, there will eventually come a time when almost everything is more than a dollar. What will happen to Dollar Tree when that day arrives? Will they rebrand themselves "Dollar-and-a-Half Tree" where "Everything's a Buck-Fifty"?

It's difficult for this thread to continue to generate high quality BS when the news of BS coming out of the UK suggests that much of that kingdom has gone berserk and re-elected their own clown head-of-state.

Fortunately we have neither in Idaho! They wouldn't dare! Our State Legislature would quickly put a stop to it, if it didn't find a way to tax it.

By the way, our appeal of our property tax has gone to the State tax board. According to the letter we received yesterday this county has filed 279 such appeals, versus 325 for the rest of the STATE. The Board is also out of money for the appeals and will be asking the Legislature to an additional appropriation.

You can't top the New York Post for Bullshit. But in this instance they actually published something more bizarre than bullshit.

In case the link expires, the article says:

It’s a bird … it’s a plane … it’s a penis fish?

Thousands of “pulsing penis fish” have washed ashore on a California beach, as seen in jarring photos that are raising eyebrows due to the creature’s phallic shape.

The quirky marine life is officially called fat innkeeper worms (Urechis caupo), and an expert writes for Bay Nature that he believes a recent storm in the Drakes Beach area is the reason so many of them mysteriously appeared on the beach.

Ivan Parr, a biologist from the Western Section of the Wildlife Society, spotted them Dec. 6 and explains that the 10-inch fat innkeeper worm typically lives underwater, burrowing in mud or sand, but the storm likely carried them ashore.

“I’ve heard my share of imaginative theories from beachcombers, such as flotsam of a wrecked bratwurst freighter,” he writes.

However, Parr explains that a sausage ship accident is not the cause of this scene.

“We’re seeing the risk of building your home out of sand,” he says. “Strong storms — especially during El Niño years — are perfectly capable of laying siege to the intertidal zone, breaking apart the sediments, and leaving their contents stranded on shore.”

The spoonworm, which can live up to 25 years, feeds and swims using its “spatula-shaped proboscis.” It typically eats bacteria, plankton and other small particles, which it collects using “sticky mucus nets.”

Parr says he’s heard of sightings over the years in California at Pajaro Dunes, Moss Landing, Bodega Bay and Princeton Harbor.

The creature dates back 300 million years and also can be eaten. An anonymous colleague at The Post who has dined on a stir-fried fat innkeeper worm in Shanghai, China, describes the taste as “like a Livestrong band mated with a clam.”

Those were BWL and Rapaire

now back to our regularly scheduled incomplete reality of quantum physics.

The world is composed of quantum realities, so are our brains with 'micro tubuels'.   Einstein did elucidate the realities of the quantum universe, his only attack he made upon quantum theory was that it is incomplete. So let us complete it, shall we?

Lets look at a thought experiment in which an adjoining medium or 'space dimension' would allow for all the odd inexplicable behaviors of quantum wavicles. It would have to be a medium or space dimension that would allow for wavicles to disappear between states and account for entanglement.

It would have to allow for the very small to enter and exit this special space but block the macroverse. The properties of this special space or medium would have to allow a simulataneous touching of every spot in the universe to touch or be adjacent to one another.

It would have to be a very special and bizarre space indeed. I have always called it anti space and of course it would have to be, get this, invisible.

Such a space would allow for all the impossibilities of quantum mechanics. Sherlock said when you've tried everything and only one possibility remains, that has to be your answer. Well that defies logic but if the special space allows for all quantum shenanygans...it should be considered. The problem is we can not yet measure let alone see special quantum space.

There we completed the quantum mystery. thank you.

Stilly the way we tried to measure the curve or flatness of the universe was to trace humongous triangles and see if they added up to more degrees than a flat triangle. Why they got it wrong is that the
universe is bigger than we thought.

This question was asked of me in 1970 and I chose an open universe ie curved. Good catch, You found that link before I did.

Nice! And I have a futility room also; lately the puppy keeps dragging the rug from in front of my washer out into the yard and dragging it through the lawn and leaves. It seems futile to try to keep the whole house out of this dog's reach.

I have a whale tooth scrimshaw but I don't remember the ship. When I run accross it in the futility room, it's yours.

I'd like some scrimshaw from the whaling ship "Essex" -- 19th century stuff, you know.

What would you like Rap? Do you like whale tusks or teeth?
