It turns out the daughter of the King of BS, Ivanka, suffered injuries from a malfunctioning court X-ray security machine. The 'extruded plastic implants' in her nose face and breasts de-adhered and sagged from the overheated radiation. An emergency plastic surgery procedure will try to reverse the accident to change the result that resembles Rosie O'Donnell.

I did not know that about Roseanne.

MOAB has been a sanctuary for the biggest whoppers as well as the deepest truths, art, and confessions.
In the last 5 to 8 years the police and federal government have used a technology called Stingray made by Harris Corporation and its clandestine use has been reported in the WSJ. It can be handheld, driven around, or fly high by drone over populations that have cell phone use. It acts like a cell tower that takes everything without permission. Untold numbers of immigrants have been located and all their data collected. It has also been used to collect all the data of protesters like the women's march after the Trump inauguration. What is wrong with this practice is that a search warrant is not requested to take all of the data. Its like the 4th amendment has disappeared.

Many aspects of our current information crises are covered in the documentary 'Web of Make Believe', death lies & the internet.

There is a health innovation that is prone to AI discovery that is too complex for the human mind. It is the folding of proteins in our cells that are governed by our genes. The errors in the shape of proteins are relatively many and either correct themselves or sends cells into self-destruct mode. There are hundreds of disorders and disease systems that can result from misshapen proteins. Some may make you feel like you woke up on the wrong side of the bed and others can cause retinitis pigmentosa or dementia. We did reverse a couple malformed proteins and restored vision in mice but doing so for humans and the hundreds of cooperating genes is well in the future.

We used to crowd source computer space to solve protein problems but AI may speed up this process. Put a pin in it.

The original Mother of all BS threads had 59238 posts when it expired, and many thousands more lost in a couple of major Mudcat crashes.

The MOAB - Mother of All BS [annex] has a puny (but poetic) 3636 posts. It has died the death of a thousand 500 codes, kept from dropping off the bottom of the page solely with infusions of posts transferred there by moderation.

This thread is one that will look at some of the historic original posts. Because you can see them if you know where to look - the original folks who posted there all have post histories that include their MOAB posts, even if you can't open the thread itself. So posting links to a few of the original participants will help revisit MOM's glory days, when Tweed and Khandu and Amos and Bee-dubya-ell and others dropped in to tell stories and share poetry.

I'll move over a couple of the last posts from the [annex] thread to see if we can give this one some legs to run with, so this "first" post will probably drop down the list some.


How's this for a little Mudelf magic? There are posts from the original MOM thread! ---mudelf

If you want to pick a comedian to suggest is a transmogrification for Ivanka, Rosie O'Donnell isn't the one. I'd suggest using Rosanne Barr who actually hangs out with the family and/or their attorneys.

In the war against tolerance Joe posted that he can not understand why Stilly would allow me to post ideas and history. Well when it comes to my notes on Rachel Maddow's podcast Prequel she deletes them on the grounds they are off topic philosophy.
So check out Rachel Maddow podcasts on your own to expand your sense of history.

Joe goes on to say my head is up my ass but I still believe that when history is being changed or deleted by agenda, you should know the history that is being attacked and why.

I will name the iceberg Donueland and charge fees for tourists on the mystery cruise. It is spring and summer for the iceberg and it should last until winter when a second season is possible. Icebergs melt from the bottom up at a millimeter a second. At 1000 feet thick it could really last a long time. With any luck, I hope it eventually docks in the Seychelles but Australia is possible. Comon down and beat the heat of global warming.
Up here this is the winter for discount tents so bring your tent and money for the improv restaurants via flights from South Africa.

If you don't know, I fell outside my room in a hotel in Oslo, Norway. I have a REAL shiner of a black eye and my glasses frame cut a slit just below my right eyebrow. It's quite a mess and yes, there was a decent amount of blood shed (some of it got on the cover the book I had just purchased). When I finally got up I located the things I'd been carrying and got into the room, from which I called my wife. I went to the front desk and reported the incident. I chose not to go to the doctor/hospital/ambulance/etc.

When I got back home I made an appointment with my ophthalmologist and primary care medico. The latter I saw yesterday (also about a cold I have contracted) and the former today.

Apart from being achy and have an "eye area bruise" that's a real beauty, I'm just a bit vertiginous now and then. Yesterday the PCP told me to take the cough medicine and be VERY careful for a while when walking, etc. The eye doctor told me that I was "damend lucky" because apart from "giving your eye a shaking up there isn't anything I can see that's wrong." Of course, both said the come quickly or even go to the ER/AE if problems develop, stuff like flashes of light, which can indicate a detached retina. Stuff I don't want to have.

Anyway, that's the run down on my injury. The fall occurred last Sunday, five days ago.

Sorry that happened to you, Rapparee.
I had a fall last month, still nursing a hurt knee from it.
The worst part was the shock.
I was lucky that that was the worst of it.

Do what the doctor tells you, and feel better soon.

It gets worse. Pat (my wife) went to the ER Saturday. Testing showed COVID, rhinovirus, and a couple other things. She asked to go. This is her third COVID case, she has residuals from the first two. She is taking I don’t know how many medicines right now. I’m trying to hold it all together until she’s at least a little better. She is, however, at home this time.

I told the Legion I got the eye fighting with a troll.

There are several 'To Catch a Smuggler' shows. The detection seems to be done primarily by trained dogs and Xrays. Cartels might be interested in a workaround for those 2 challenges.

Unlike enzymatic formulas that work slowly and leave odors behind, Pooph dismantles odors on a molecular level to eliminate them at the source --turning any organic odor into clean fresh air.

Make the shipping container out of the same material being smuggled. For instance, a suitcase made of diamond would have the same density at the diamonds being smuggled and therefore the smuggled diamonds would be undetectable on an x-ray.

As I once and more said to Amos,


       Let Sporus tremble—"What? that thing of silk,
Sporus, that mere white curd of ass's milk?
Satire or sense, alas! can Sporus feel?
Who breaks a butterfly upon a wheel?"
Yet let me flap this bug with gilded wings,
This painted child of dirt that stinks and stings;
Whose buzz the witty and the fair annoys,
Yet wit ne'er tastes, and beauty ne'r enjoys,
So well-bred spaniels civilly delight
In mumbling of the game they dare not bite.
Eternal smiles his emptiness betray,
As shallow streams run dimpling all the way.
Whether in florid impotence he speaks,
And, as the prompter breathes, the puppet squeaks;
Or at the ear of Eve, familiar toad,
Half froth, half venom, spits himself abroad,
In puns, or politics, or tales, or lies,
Or spite, or smut, or rhymes, or blasphemies.
His wit all see-saw, between that and this ,
Now high, now low, now Master up, now Miss,
And he himself one vile antithesis.
Amphibious thing! that acting either part,
The trifling head, or the corrupted heart,
Fop at the toilet, flatt'rer at the board,
Now trips a lady, and now struts a lord.
Eve's tempter thus the rabbins have express'd,
A cherub's face, a reptile all the rest;
Beauty that shocks you, parts that none will trust,
Wit that can creep, and pride that licks the dust.


And which I now dedicate to a certain Don Juan in Florida.

IF true, those who can manipulate the average person must ensure that the average person stays stupid and never smarten up. There is plenty of evidence that the ignorance campaign is alive and well. Part of that campaign is to convince the rest of us that the average person is stupid. I believe that is a big fat lie.

So much depends on context. When headlines say "Florida man" did this or that (in the non-Trump meaning) it tends to say average or below average who you've never heard of.

If you want to do the math then in the spread, 25% would be below average, you could give the middle 26 to 50% as average, and the top IQ or some other functional measurement to the 76-100% of the group. Or you could do 33.3 for each group.

100% of the people who vote for the majority of the GOP slate of electors at least have a screw loose if they can't figure out that they're being taken to the cleaners by Trump's gang.

Some politicians don't care, some will feign a prayer.
The shooter had a moment of satisfaction probably stemming from bullying at some point.
The victims include 8 children with gunshot wounds. What they are feeling is beyond my comprehension.

With the sudden disappearance of my stalker, I found I was suffering from a version of the Stockholm effect. Perhaps he had found his true calling and became the author, editor, and publisher of 'Critic's Corner' where all critics of every genre were criticized.
It would have a companion book 'The Autocritocrisy of the World's Greatest Critic'.

While the book was full of glowing self-praise, 'Critics Corner' was a scathing digital profane diatribe of libelous insults. Perhaps the book propelled the online critics corner or simply the phenomenon of the most negative influencer caught on, but in no time there were more followers than on Truth Social.

This success was followed up with emails from MAGA internet threateners, Swatters, and apps from stalkers of young women influencers that have had threats via Venn diagram information of every person who was acquainted. Stalking and threatening turned out to be a huge industry.

Suddenly my exstalker was a small fish in a big sea. To be as important as he desired meant that he had to become a global villain and that did not have the appeal he had always wanted. Stopping hurt and torture had some withdrawal symptoms but soon he felt happier than before. He had time to enjoy life and lived happily ever after.

What is toxic is the manipulation and addiction society. We used to be a tool and skill society. Now apps on your phone, that you do not know is there; will measure your dopamine reward levels and lets you play against AI features for your attention. Its not a fair fight.

Suicide levels have doubled for adolescents exposed to social trashing techniques by other users whose playground has addictive app features.
Speaking of users, there are drug users and tech users but for other things we are customers, clients or patients.

Smart and secure people can use the internet rabbit hole to investigate many issues. The negative rabbit holes are tunnels of disinformation like Pizzagate and the holy Trump. Tools of persuasion normally move slowly Like Nazi laws that gradually criminalized a certain branch of society. Facebook and other techs can move faster.

I addressed addiction by limiting hypnosis sessions to three. More than that would be considered unnecessary but possibly helpful. Apps have no limits on there growth. AI will never solve the problem of fake news. The existential threat is as real and abusive to democracy as slavery. Laws against addictive tech is a rational eventual outcome. I hope.

Naturally, a well-trained orthopedist would benefit from well-honed carpentry skills which is not the nonsense Maggie implied.
My ultimate point is that our limited 5 senses can not image the quantum realm without a virtual imagination. Atoms are not spheres with orbiting particles like planetary mechanics. Atoms are more like vibrating energy fields that operate more like perpetual motion particle waves.

Imagination can unlock the concept that what we perceive as solid is actually empty space that also contains vibratory energy. Energy and mass are two aspects of the same thing just as space and time are a different aspect of a similar energy. It helps to have an artist's concept to imagine the reality of our quantum universe. The quality of the mind's eye and imagination is our best tool to know more of the universe and scientists speculate that we only know about 4% of reality. Math is our other best tool.

Even the art of music offers clues to the quantum world. It seems like a particle occupying the same space at the same time is a paradox but music allows for two or more frequencies in the same sound space without confusion. The wisdom of the music is that the relationship between the notes is most important in the effect it has.

It is said truth is beauty and beauty is truth. It is in our mind that beauty exists. If the universe has a consciousness it too may perceive beauty. If not, the universe is blind. I doubt that.

dyslexia is a different door to perception that can have savant aspects but fails at school regimes. It is also a gift with negative externalities. Imagination and dreams make for poor science but truly great leaps do come from imaginative unlikely places in rare circumstances. These leaps are not intuitive and are often not accepted for years.

IF YOU TRY TO GRAVITATIONALIZE THE QUANTUM WORLD, people would think you are nuts since no one has succeeded with quantum gravity. However, if you allow macro gravity to convert to an electrical potential of a pair of gluons in the quantum world we may have united some important theories. Just look at dust bunnies that coalesce by electric charge or asteroidal dust that combines.

All energies seem to have the ability to exist in another form whether it is mass and energy or a neutrino which can metamorphose into a different neutrino. This notion would simplify many energy relationships. But in the meantime since we can't even find evidence for supersymmetry this idea will be put on hold.

Everyone who looks at it agrees that quantum mechanics is incomplete.
Finding its form of gravity will not complete its nature. Science has been called the new religion. It is true that most of it can be as dull as church. A great breakthrough will probably have to bypass administration.

Such a breakthrough will probably demonstrate that converting space into time may exceed the energy that converts mass into energy.

Trephination refers to the process of creating a hole in the skull and, in specific cases, the nail and is one of the oldest surgical procedures documented to date. It has been used throughout history with the goal of relieving pressure; managing symptoms of head trauma, such as subdural and epidural hematomas; and accessing brain tumors. Trephination can be performed using a trephine, a drill, by scraping with an abrasive instrument, or for the hard headed, cutting with a jackhammer. Rare complications that may arise with trephination include infection and, if the dura matter surrounding the brain is damaged in the process, damage to the underlying blood vessels, meninges, and brain. Modern medicine has used trephination as part of treatments for frontal sinus disease, glaucoma, and subungual hematomas.

Newagers believe that Akashic memories and signals from the universe are enhanced with trephination.

I cannot say that I know you well
But you can't lie to me with all these books that you sell
I'm not trying to follow you to the end of the world
I'm just trying to leave something behind
Words have come from men and mouse
Oh, but I can't help thinking that I have heard the wrong crowd
When all the water is gone my job will be too
So I'm trying to leave something behind
Oh, money is free but love costs more than our bread
And the ceiling is hard to reach
Oh, the future ahead is broken and red
And I'm trying to leave something behind
This whole world is a foreign land
We swallow the moon, but we do not know our own hand
Oh, we're running with the case, but we ain't got the gold
Yet we're trying to leave something behind
My friends, I belive we are at the wrong fight
And I can not read what I did not write
I've been to his house, but the master is gone
Yet we're trying to leave something behind
Now there is a beast who has taken my brain
You can put me to bed, but you can't feel my pain
When the machine has taken the soul from the man
It's time to leave something behind
Oh, money is free but love costs more than our bread
And the ceiling is hard to reach
Oh, the future ahead is already dead
And it's time to leave something behind
Now, I've got this feeling that I'm still at the shore
And pockets don't know what it means to be poor
I can get through the wall if you give me a door
So I can leave something behind
Oh, wisdom is lost in the trees somewhere
Oh, you're not gonna find it in some mental gray hair
It's locked up from those who hurry ahead
And it's time to leave something behind
Oh, money is free but love costs more than our bread
And the ceiling is hard to reach
When my son is a man, he will know what I meant
When I was just trying to leave something behind
And I'm trying to leave something behind

Rap, having to set up or restore the home system is the price we pay for not letting the IP company send a tech out who fiddles with stuff and leaves you with whatever their default setting is, and not giving you much information. I've helped several friends with the systems the cable or phone company left behind, usually with setting up a booster or extra ports for the router.

If I ever get the house leveled (right now it is at its most level time of the year, the soil is moist and the cracks have almost disappeared in the walls and at the ceiling edge) I'll put in a sprinkler system. That I will diagram and supervise because too often those sprinkler guys just wing it. (Neighbors up the street paid for a high dollar system only to find later that they put in a cheap set of buried hoses and such, workmen long gone along with their cash).

Yes, I shall be certain that what I use is well underground and that the corpses are not when they might be eaten by the various hawks, owls, eagles, and other critters who frequent the golf course behind the house. Oddly enough, the cops take a dim view of shooting in the city limits, even with an air rifle (BB gun).

I'd trap them, but releasing them out in the national forest is nearly certain death for them anyway. I've checked before and our animal control bunch doesn't deal with moles, voles, skunks, feral cats, and certain others.

The firemen and police left a half hour ago. It all started by leaving the car interior lights on. I accidentally hit the switch when I opened the sunroof days ago. I have seen episodes of airplane disasters when the pilot hit the wrong switch. I didn't expect I would do the same.

This morning the door opened but it would not start, dead battery.
I could call AAA and get a jump but I thought if I waited when it was 90 degrees it might start this afternoon. So when I went out an hour ago the door would not even open. Aha a tow truck driver taught me how to unlock the door if disabled due to an attempted break-in or dead battery. There is a secret key slot at the rear of the car that opens the trunk and from there a hidden cable that can be pulled to open the door.

It all worked so now I could unlatch the hood. I was feeling pretty smart when I sat down. Muscle memory was closing the door when my brain said don't do that. Click. I was now locked in a small 90 degree car with no horn or phone. The windows were sealed but by lying down and kicking it I could jam a pair of scissors and umbrella in the crack to get an inch of air by bending the window outward. I was winded and hot from the kicking so I took of my shirt. Eventually my neighbor was unloading her kids when she heard my yell for help. She called the fire dept and I gave my info through the small window opening.

I heard the sirens when the first lady cop arrived. I explained how to find the secret cable to unlock the door while she held a window breaker. It worked and I explained to the firemen how she had opened the door and thanked them all. She wanted to know how I knew about the secret cable and I explained about the tow truck driver. I thanked the neighbor and went in the house. My wife was none the wiser wearing her noise cancelling headphones and in a meeting about ribosomic DNA.

Katagelasticism is a psychological condition in which a person excessively enjoys mocking others. Katagelasticists actively seek and establish situations in which they can laugh at others (at the expense of these people). There is a broad variety of things that katagelasticists would do—starting from harmless pranks or word plays to truly embarrassing and even harmful, mean-spirited jokes. They would be of the opinion that mocking others is part of the daily life and if others do not like being laughed at, they should just fight back. For katagelasticists, it is fun mocking others and there is almost nothing that might hinder them from doing so. For them, some people might even provoke getting mocked. This condition often makes it difficult for sufferers behave on social media.

Sits in a corner
Extracting cube roots to infinity,
An assignment for boys
The will minimize noise
And produce a more peaceful vicinity.

Automation
Is vexation,
Quaternions are bad;
Analysis Situs
Is only detritus,
I wonder: Have I been had?

Little Bo-Peep
Has lost her sheep,
The radar has failed to find them.
They'll all, face to face,
Meet in parallel space,
Preceding their leaders behind them.

6. LACTOMANGULATION (lak' to man gyu lay' shun)n. The act of manhandling the "open here" spout on a milk container so badly that one has to resort to the 'illegal' side.

The easier definition of this is when the child you nurse at home is riding in a tummy pack in the grocery store and they're trying to break through your shirt and bra to nurse while in a grocery store. (Throw a small blanket over the shoulder and head of the child and let them have access and no one in the store is the wiser.)

Donuel, stick to MOAB for a while, let the joke thread alone. I love you and your whimsy but your darker side is not helping that other thread.

What Stilly said, Mom.

And Mom? I went out target shooting yesterday (.22 at 50 feet) and hit the 9 or 10 ring 22 times out of 23 standing. Pretty good for someone who hasn't touched a firearm for 9+ months. Then I went home. That was all I wanted to do, so see how the surgeon messing with my brain might have affected some of my fine motor function. And today I WENT OUT DRIVING!! Not alone, but I did the driving and didn't hit anybody or anything!

Then I came home and did the laundry and cooked supper.

I spared myself about three hours of torture yesterday by NOT driving to Dallas. The party was for a friend who spent five days at my house earlier in the week so it wasn't like we hadn't had a chance to visit already. I'll drive west from here happily, but east, nope. Just nope. (Amon Carter had a rivalry going with Dallas and always packed his lunch when he went there so he didn't even need to spend money eating out. I have more-or-less adopted that policy and just don't go there. Every single time I seem to end up following an impaired driver on a high-speed interstate highway under construction.)

MOM, it's time to set up Gluon's taxi service. I bet she could have whisked me to that party in a nanosecond.

Gluon can do lots and lots more than she does. You have heard that the James Watt telescope has taken a picture of two black holes "colliding?" Gluon brought them together and now they're actually getting married, not just casually "encountering" each other!
