:D

ANyway I think the gxx is beginning to make sense as one component of the 9-value matrix of the G tensor...

psychogony (n.)

Originally: the origin of the soul; a treatise dealing with this (obs.).
Later also: = psychogenesis.

Used in a sentence in 1902 by H. Sidgwick:

"It remains to consider how far our study of the nature of mind ? is affected by investigations of its past history, i.e. how far Psychology is dominated by Psychogony."

I posted something earlier today and now I see it didn't stick. But I can't remember what it was. Can any of you figure what it might have been? Thank you.

I am having a terrible time trying to figure out the derivation a G-tensor based on a set of voltages measured at a each coil in a polygonal array of antenna coils, because the guy who wrote the script starts with scalars and translates them into vectors using a uniform locational vector and the scalar voltage, and I just don't see how he gets the three-axis tensor from that. It's some crafty trick but it has me exhausted trying to follow it. I like folk music much better.

I never heard the French say that!! Even when we whupped them at the Cliffs, they never said "A chicken owe some gout!" They said things like "Au secours" and "Je m'en fous!" and "On m'a bless?!!".

"the improbable but possible"

Ah, yes...

Like me and Winona Ryder establishing a close and intimate relationship.

Or me and William Shatner being good friends and colleagues who call each other up regularly.

Improbable, perhaps. But possible!

I have to stand in a fond amaze at the prospect of Rapparree being presented with threats of physical harm from a made-up identity. It's kind of like worrying about whether Batman might be available to handle the monsters under your bed.

If he wants to start something he can do so. I'm not responsible for the results inflicted upon him; neither will I refrain from injuring him because he can't help being who he is ("You can choose your friends..."). I don't PLAN to be in Blind River any time in the near or distant future. On the other hand, I will invite him to visit the Big Lost River area anytime he wishes. I don't hold a grudge and will even show him the good fishing spots -- they're up in the mountains because the BLR is pretty much dry throughout most of its length for most of the year...but there really ARE trout up in the headwaters.

He's not only more sober, Rap, he's also much more efficient and aware of what's happening around him. I think you'd find him harder to shoot than Shane. I wouldn't worry about the threats, though, unless you are planning to vacation in Blind River soon.

Well, Amos old bean, I only fell the last three steps and that was back in September. Finally mentioned the knee to my doctor and he did some manipulations and told me to see an orthopod. So I do, on the 21st.

So far this year has been...interesting.

LH, it'd be easier to shoot Don because he's a steadier target, being more sober than Shame.

It is frustrating when someone choses a house at random to make their five-finger shopping trip, and it happens to be yours. But rather than let that anger eat you, spend the energy making sure it won't happen again. One thing that you need to remember is that they know you'll soon have all brand new stuff to replace what was stolen. "The tyranny of the stolen old battery" they call it on Car Talk. The old battery is stolen from a car so when the new one is put in to replace it, that's what the thieves really wanted.

No, Eiseley, it doesn't. I see an orthopod on the 21st as the first step in a meniscus repair of my left knee. Had the right one done about eight years back, after a fall, and now it's the left knee's turn (after a fall, of course).

But I've whomped that curse on whoever stole Amos' stuff. I can do a stronger one if he'd like, maybe something involving spinal necrosis and flesh melting. I figger I've get enough bad karma built up that a little more won't hurt any.

My guess is they didn't know much about guitars, Amos. That was lucky! (even if the rest wasn't)

Holding ill will against them is perfectly understandable, but it won't achieve anything other than putting knots in your stomach and stressing you out. Karma? Well, there are all sorts of interesting aspects to karma, but they can be a bit mysterious as to how they play out...and why. The sooner it stops really bugging you, though, the sooner you are free of it, right?

I think I had best insure some stuff around here. I'd been putting it off.

Whilst I'm on the subject of cursing, here's the famous Curse On Doneraile. I dislike the part about rapparees, but it's generic.

            The Curse of Doneraile

Alas, how dismal is my tale, I lost my watch in Doneraile.
My Dublin watch, my chain and seal, Pilfered at once in Doneraile
May fire and brimstone never fail, To fall in showers on Doneraile.
As lightening flashes across the vale, So down to hell with Doneraile
The fate of Pompey at Pharsale, Be that the curse of Doneraile.
May Beef or Mutton, Lamb or Veal, Be never found in Doneraile.
But Garlic Soup and Scurvy Kale, Be still the food of Doneraile.
May Heaven a chosen curse entail, On rigid rotten Doneraile.
May Sun and Moon forever fail, To beam their lights on Doneraile
May every pestilential gale, Blast that cursed spot called Doneraile.
May not a Cuckoo, Thrush or Quail, Be ever heard in Doneraile.
May Patriots, Kings and commonweal, Despise and harrass Doneraile.
May every Post, Gazette and Mail, Sad tidings bring to Doneraile.
May loudest thunders ring a Peal, To blind and deafen Doneraile.
May vengeance fall at head and tail, From north to south at Doneraile.
May profit light and tardy sale, Still damp the trade of Doneraile.
May fame resound a dismal tale, Whenever she lights at Doneraile.
May Egypt's plagues at once prevail, To thin the knaves of Doneraile.
May frost and snow and sleet and hail, Benumb each joint in Doneraile.
May wolves and bloodhounds trace and trail, The cursed crew of Doneraile.
May Oscar with his fiery flail, To Atoms thresh all Doneraile.
May every mischief fresh and stale, Abide henceforth in Doneraile.
May all from Belfast to Kinsale, Scoff, Curse and Damn you, Doneraile.
May neither flour nor oatenmeal, Be found or known in Doneraile.
May want and woe each joy curtail, That ever was known in Doneraile.
May no one coffin want a nail, That wraps a rogue in Doneraile.
May all the thieves that rob and steal, The gallows meet in Doneraile.
May all the sons of Granuaile, Blush at the thieves of Doneraile.
May mischief big as Norway whale, Overwhelm the knaves of Doneraile.
May curses wholesale and retail, Pour with full force on Doneraile.
May every transport wont to sail, A convict bring from Doneraile.
May every churn and milking pail, Fall dry to stones in Doneraile.
May cold and hunger still congeal, The stagnant blood of Doneraile.
May every hour new woes reveal, That Hell reserves for Doneraile.
May every chosen ill prevail, Over all the imps of Doneraile.
May no one wish or prayer avail, To soothe the woes of Doneraile.
May the Inquisition straight impale, The rapparees of Doneraile.
May curse of Sodom now prevail, And sink to ashes Doneraile.
May Charon's boat triumphant sail, Completely manned from Doneraile.
Oh! may my couplets never fail, To find new curse in Doneraile,
And may grim Pluto's inner jail, Forever groan with Doneraile.

Oh, heck, Amos. I'll wish them ill for you and take the karma onto myself. In the true folk tradition I'll just modify an existing song a tad...

That a ghost may him haunt in the dark of the night,
May his hen never lay, may his ass never bray,
May his goat fly away like an old paper kite:
That the rats and the fleas may the wretch ever tease,
May the piercing north-breeze make him tremble and shake:
May a four-year old bug build a nest in the mug,      
The monster that took all from poor Amos' shack.

May his cock never grow, may his bellows ne'er blow,
And for bed, pot and hole may he never have none;
May his cradle not rock, may his box have no lock,
May his wife have no frock to shade her back-bone,
May his cock be a quack, may his bollocks turn black,
And stain down his pants with a long yellow streak,
May the scurvy and leech never part from the breech,
The monster that took all from poor Amos' shack.

May his pipe never smoke, may his pee-pot be broke,
And add to the joke may his kettle ne'er boil,
May he poop in the bed 'til the hour he's dead,
May he always be fed on ipacac and fish oil.
May he swell with the gout, may his grinders fall out.
May he roar, bawl and shout with the horrid tooth-ache,
May his temples wear horns, and all his toes corns,
The monster that took all from poor Amos' shack.

May his spade never dig, may his sow never pig,
May each nit in his wig be as large as a snail,
May his door have no latch, may his house have no thatch.
May his turkeys not hatch, may the rats eat his meal.
May every old fairy from Cork to Dunleary.
Dip his snug and airy in river and lake,
Where the eel and the trout they might dine on the snout.
The monster that took all from poor Amos' shack.

May his dog yelp and growl with both hunger and cold,
And his wife always scold till his brains go astray,
May the curse of each hag that e'er carried a bag,
May light on the thief till his head turns to grey.
May monkeys still bite him, and mad dogs affright him,
And every one slight him, asleep or awake,
May the mice still gnaw on him, and jack-daws shit on him,
The monster that took all from poor Amos' shack.

He/They should be easy to find after all that....

If I wish them ill, will it darken my own karma? Is this retribution for some past foul deed of mine, long buried? Or is it my karma because the karma fairies KNEW I'd wish them ill after it happened, which made it right and just to happen? Or was one of them in some desperate need of all my stuff, too desperate to earn it in the usual way? Pshaw. Shoot on sight. Oh, it was fast in and out alright. Straight to the high-dollar fast-turnover items. There was a $6000 Martin hanging on the wall in the room they took the TV from, and they ignored it. Ha. Ha.

Sounds like they had time to poke around if they got all of those things? They dropped and ran when a neighbor spotted the strange Cadillac backed up in my driveway and the stereotypical robbery looking suspects hauling things out of the house and into the trunk. They'd just started going through my room when they stopped. Televisions, computers, video games, etc. in probably under five minutes. They saw my neighbor look up the drive, slam on her brakes, and back into the driveway across the street to get their license, and then she shot down the street to city hall to catch the sheriff. No one was ever caught (the Sheriff's office seems to have been stymied by the little lady who didn't speak English at the house they knocked on for the registered owner of the Cadillac. In Texas they apparently couldn't get past a Spanish speaker. Duh.)

Since then I try to never let my front yard get so tall that it looks like no one is here. I was here when it happened to us, but I'd had two weeks of children home with the flu and just hadn't had a chance (in February!) to knock down the weeds with the mower. The sheriff could see where they walked across the front lawn to ring that doorbell first, to see if I was home. I remember over the years having young men who did not look like they wanted to mow the lawn look a little startled when I opened the front door. I suspect that I'd seen the tactic, if not the burglar, before, and this time they got lucky.

My pitbull has a deep well-modulated voice, very authoritative. She sounds larger than 55 pounds, rather in the way LH described full-sized dachshunds. My catahoula mix (45 pounds) has a loud normal bark, but like Roy Orbison also has an operatic soprano falsetto and goes off like a bottle rocket when she's unhappy about something human, animal (possum, cat, etc.). Between the two it sounds like a small army of dogs behind the wrought iron gate to the back yard. They can see much of the driveway to cover the side door and the garage door. They can't see the front door, but that is clearly visible from the street.

Some people around here put up signs that read, "This House Protected By Smith & Wesson." This doesn't help much at all, especially if the house is empty. It just advertises that there might be guns there.

No, if I were to put up a sign it would read "CAUTION! Dysfunctional Veteran! Keep your hands up and stay in the middle of the path. Obey all commands immediately."

There is no threat in that -- I am a dysfunctional veteran (Type II diabetes, hearing loss) and you are cautioned because I could go into hypoglycemia or something. The rest is just advice. But of course, you might read it differently....

"none-sexist"?

Dachshunds generally make excellent watchdogs. They have very acute hearing, don't miss much, and will make one hell of a racket when they hear anything suspicious. That in itself will scare off most robbers. The full size Dachshunds have a deep bark that sounds like a much bigger dog, and they can also be quite fierce to an intruder...and that's no joke. They have a very powerful bite and a totally determined attitude when on the warpath.

I don't know about strong doors. They would help, I guess, with amateur housebreakers, but the pros will break open just about anything but a steel door.

Some people around here put up "Beware Dog" signs on their property even when they don't have a dog. It helps.

Dogs do make a difference because all they have to do is make noise. They don't need to be trained guard dogs (the prospect of living with one of those seems pretty grim, actually). And they're funny - the pit bull, in particular, sometimes late at night if I take the trash out she'll bark. When she realizes it was me, she looks a little embarrassed. :)
