If a projectile has an initial velocity of 2000 mps and mass of 100 grams at an angle of 62 degrees, and assuming standard temperature and pressure along the entire trajectory, how far must the projectile travel for its mass to be reduced by 7 grams if the projectile is composed of a) bronze, b) iron, and c) yttrium? Please show your work and do not copy from your neighbor, who is probably wrong. You may assume 1.3 gravities.

It doesn't matter. Has the fracking snow melted? How's the fishing? Does your lawn have grubs? Has NB successfully seceded? Compare and contrast the following: Why. Tell us about the impact of Swedenborg on the founding of Ft. Worth. Discuss in detail the solution to Fermat's Last Theorem.

I predict a lot of driving today. I have a roll of TP in case MOM can't wait till we get to a Rest Area and has to wander into the brush at a "Picnic Area" (a rest stop with no bathrooms).

Stand is cool. Fall down dead? Not so much.

Let Bacchus' sons be not dismayed
But join with me, each jovial blade
Come, drink and sing and lend your aid
To help me with the chorus:

cho: Instead of spa, we'll drink brown ale
And pay the reckoning on the nail;
No man for debt shall go to jail
From Garryowen in glory.

We'll beat the bailiffs out of fun,
We'll make the mayor and sheriffs run
We are the boys no man dares dun
If he regards a whole skin.

Our hearts so stout have got no fame
For soon 'tis known from whence we came
Where'er we go they fear the name
Of Garryowen in glory.

And then.. yer fucked.

Mom asked me to tell everyone that one hundred and fifty (150) rounds of .45-70 Government ammunition with 405 grain lead round-nosed, flat pointed bullets weighs just about an ounce over 14 pounds, or 6.38 kilograms.

This factoid is brought to you by Mom MOAB herself.

Lots of lovely Herkimer quartz in the region, if I recall! I have had my eye on an old schoolhouse for decades - I used to drive past all of the time on my way to work in the Cascade Mountains from near Seattle in Washington. It is in the town of Oso (yes, the one with the mud slide). It is about 4-5 miles west of the slide area, but with that activity it certainly merits a second look for anyone who decides to move in and refurbish.

Turns out it was a white tail deer the other evening, I got more photos and we looked, where else, at the tail. White when it's up in flight.

Just leaf it alone.


Wells in that area are high sulphur ( 6 miles from Richfield Springs, NY).

The spring is sweet water.

Went up to upstate NY last weekend to meet with the land-use officer for town of Exeter. I have a 10,000 sq ft schoolhouse 8 miles from Cooperstown, and plan to retire up there. Almost enough room there for my books.

On the drive from my friends' house 7 miles away to the schoolhouse, I saw one rabbit and two deer on the road- NO cars. On the way back, there was one wild turkey- again, no other cars.

I have GOT to get the place fixed up and move up there!

No, it's from the original of the "Carmina Burana." One assumes that the reader will know both Latin and the source of the poem or prose:

Iam Trimalchio eadem omnia lusu intermisso poposcerat feceratque potestatem clara voce, siquis nostrum iterum vellet mulsum sumere, cum subito signum symphonia datur et gustatoria pariter a choro cantante rapiuntur. Ceterum inter tumultum cum forte paropsis excidisset et puer iacentem sustulisset, animadvertit Trimalchio colaphisque obiurgari puerum ac proicere rursus paropsidem iussit. Insecutus est supellecticarius argentumque inter reliqua purgamenta scopis coepit everrere. Subinde intraverunt duo Aethiopes capillati cum pusillis utribus, quales solent esse qui harenam in amphitheatro spargunt, vinumque dederunt in manus; aquam enim nemo porrexit.

Laudatus propter elegantias dominus: "Aequum, inquit, Mars amat. Itaque iussi suam cuique mensam assignari. Obiter et putidissimi servi minorem nobis aestum frequentia sua facient."

Statim allatae sunt amphorae vitreae diligenter gypsatae, quarum in cervicibus pittacia erant affixa cum hoc titulo: FALERNVM OPIMIANVM ANNORVM CENTVM. Dum titulos perlegimus, complosit Trimalchio manus et: "Eheu, inquit, ergo diutius vivit vinum quam homuncio. Quare tangomenas faciamus. Vita vinum est. Verum Opimianum praesto. Heri non tam bonum posui, et multo honestiores cenabant." Potantibus ergo nobis et accuratissime lautitias mirantibus larvam argenteam attulit servus sic aptatam ut articuli eius vertebraeque laxatae in omnem partem flecterentur. Hanc cum super mensam semel iterumque abiecisset, et catenatio mobilis aliquot figuras exprimeret, Trimalchio adiecit:

Eheu nos miseros, quam totus homuncio nil est!
Sic erimus cuncti, postquam nos auferet Orcus.
Ergo vivamus, dum licet esse bene.

Laudationem ferculum est insecutum plane non pro expectatione magnum, novitas tamen omnium convertit oculos. Rotundum enim repositorium duodecim habebat signa in orbe disposita, super quae proprium convenientemque materiae structor imposuerat cibum: super arietem cicer arietinum, super taurum bubulae frustum, super geminos testiculos ac rienes, super cancrum coronam, super leonem ficum Africanam, super virginem steriliculam, super libram stateram in cuius altera parte scriblita erat, in altera placenta, super scorpionem pisciculum marinum, super sagittarium oclopetam, super capricornum locustam marinam, super aquarium anserem, super pisces duos mullos. In medio autem caespes cum herbis excisus favum sustinebat. Circumferebat Aegyptius puer clibano argenteo panem. Atque ipse etiam taeterrima voce de Laserpiciario mimo canticum extorsit. Nos ut tristiores ad tam viles accessimus cibos: "Suadeo, inquit Trimalchio, cenemus; hoc est ius cenae".

Haec ut dixit, ad symphoniam quattuor tripudiantes procurrerunt superioremque partem repositorii abstulerunt. Quo facto, videmus infra altitia et sumina leporemque in medio pinnis subornatum, ut Pegasus videretur. Notavimus etiam circa angulos repositorii Marsyas quattuor, ex quorum utriculis garum piperatum currebat super pisces, qui tamquam in euripo natabant. Damus omnes plausum a familia inceptum et res electissimas ridentes aggredimur. Non minus et Trimalchio eiusmodi methodio laetus: "Carpe!", inquit. Processit statim scissor et ad symphoniam gesticulatus ita laceravit obsonium, ut putares essedarium hydraule cantante pugnare. Ingerebat nihilo minus Trimalchio lentissima voce: "Carpe! Carpe!" Ego suspicatus ad aliquam urbanitatem totiens iteratam vocem pertinere, non erubui eum qui supra me accumbebat, hoc ipsum interrogare. At ille, qui saepius eiusmodi ludos spectaverat: "Vides illum, inquit, qui obsonium carpit: Carpus vocatur. Ita quotiescumque dicit 'Carpe', eodem verbo et vocat et imperat".

There you go, again....

From Carmina Burana, by C. Orff:

Behold, the welcome and desirable Spring brings back joys. The brightly coloured meadow is in flower. The sun brightens everything. Now let sorrows depart! Summer returns, now the rage of Winter retires.

Now hail, snow and the rest turn to water and flow away. Winter flees and already Spring sucks at the breasts of Summer. He bears an unhappy heart who neither lives nor plays under Summer's right hand.

They who strive to enjoy the reward of Cupid rejoice and take pleasure in honey sweetness. Let us be at the command of the Cyprian (Venus), glorying and rejoicing to be the equals of Paris.

Into the mountainous wilds with all my will,
Where high winds face the high Olympic hills,
Where fogs and misted breezes prattle
Down to the sea, just northwest of Seattle.
Therefore be still, dear Mom, and strong of heart
For though we seperated be, we shall not part!
And when eight days have passed, will end your wait
By coming back to settle up your fate
And put young Rapp again upon the strait.

Pass in the parsing of young Rapparree

Examining the utterances of Gnu.
But at my back, like some forgotten bomb
I hear the rustling, harping voice of Mom
Urging the days and posts from every mind
To leave BS upon the sands of Time.

Sonnet 24/01/02                        DCL

A sonnet is a frozen tear, a kiss,
Preserved in fourteen lines. It is a pearl
Of layered thought, a gem too bright to miss
When set on page: One blossom, to unfurl
To perfect flower. As amber, sealed soul
In timeless tomb, it can show time long past,
Or hold this instant in it's grasp. The whole
Of heart upon one single page, to last
Beyond even our dreams, it seems a sip,
Distilled to essence. Refined within mind,
Lines sing sweet song, and rhymes in patterns slip,
To weave image that leaves mere vision blind.
A single chord, to resound in one's heart:
Echo of past that might your future start.
