You mean that the leader can do unmentionable things to skunks, napalm forests, kill and eat those who disagree with him, employ Karl Rove, have bad penmanship, play poorly with others, never share, start wars, run over lizards, sass his mother, water the workers' beer, pick fights in the school yard, fail to show up for National Guard duty, sell crack to kindergarteners, throw rocks at streetlights, moon the police, run guns to street gangs, sink Donald Trump's yacht, nuke New York, abuse sewer rats, and live in a sewage treatment plant and as long as he speaks well the country isn't in trouble?

It would have been easier if you had done your own Google, amigo! :D, The thing is, when you are trying to resolve indeterminate clouds of possbitility, you gotta use powerful spells so the universe will think you know what you're doing and comply. Otherwise, ti gets uppity on you and kills your cat.

It's a little confusing, but logical.
Just break it down intosmall sentences and read carefully.

It's like the toe bone connected to the foot bone, the foot bones connected to the ankle-b0ne. The Anklebones connected to the trom-bone, which is why the Saints come marching in!

As they say up in Vermont, "To the vectors belong the spiles."

It doesn't make a lot of sense, but then, well, that's Vermont for you.

Saw ol' Darcy Keet last night up at the Legion. He was still going with Nancy Potts, just like he has been for the last fifty or so years. Nancy's good ol' gal, putting up with Darcy like she has. They even almost got married eight or ten times, but each time Nancy backed out. She says she met Harry Truman hisself one time and he advised her about marryin' Darcy. Harry, she said, gave her the best advice she'd ever received when he told he, "If you can't stand the Keet get outa the hitchin'."

"An eigenvector of a linear transformation is a non-zero vector that is either left unaffected or simply multiplied by a scale factor after the transformation (the former corresponds to a scale factor of 1).

The eigenvalue of a non-zero eigenvector is the scale factor by which it has been multiplied.

A number λ is an eigenvalue of a linear transformation T : V → V if there is a non-zero vector x such that T(x) = λx.

The eigenspace corresponding to a given eigenvalue of a linear transformation is the vector space of all eigenvectors with that eigenvalue.

The geometric multiplicity of an eigenvalue is the dimension of the associated eigenspace.

The spectrum of a transformation on a finite dimensional vector space is the set of all its eigenvalues. (In the infinite-dimensional case, the concept of spectrum is more subtle and depends on the topology on the vector space).

For instance, an eigenvector of a rotation in three dimensions is a vector located within the axis about which the rotation is performed. The corresponding eigenvalue is 1 and the corresponding eigenspace contains all the vectors along the axis. As this is a one-dimensional space, its geometric multiplicity is one. This is the only eigenvalue of the spectrum (of this rotation) that is a real number.

In order to find the energy levels and the corresponding energy eigenstates, we must solve the time-independent Schrödinger equation.

We can solve the differential equation in the coordinate basis, using a power series method. It turns out that there is a family of solutions."

The above are excerpted from Rapaire's Introduction to Quantum Mathematics, Rapaire Publications, Rapaire, ed., 2007, Rapaire, Idaho.

Further elucidation can be found in this Rapaire article.

Hey, MOM, they finished paving the street in front of my house. I warned them to avoid my big spider in the rosemary, but when we went looking for her she was gone! There are a couple of interesting cylindrical things attached firmly to the branches. Perhaps these are her last hurrah--egg sacs in place, and off she goes to the giant spider web in the woods.

Doesn't matter if Mom was applying for widder's pension, paying off a parking ticket or making a run for President, the papers were officially filed and The Bearded One (of several) was adopted and is eligible to share in Mom's estate, help pay for her care, and all that sort of thing. My Wife The Attorney says that the documants are legal, valid, were properly filed, are brass-bottomed and iron-clad, and it would take an act of Congress to overturn them -- maybe even a Constitutional Amendment.

As for Gluon, that duckdog was just passing through, I think (and hope). In Gluon's passing by all of my paint ended up in different cans so you can't tell what shade is where without opening; my black powder squirts out water instead of smoke and fire; and my car now gets 347 miles to the gallon, but runs on pig urine and the exhaust has gotten me several citations from the EPA and the local health department (a tree in my front yard is also dead from the bark being "humped off").

Aw, BRuce, you really know how to stick a monkey wrench in a gearbox, doncha? Look a little further and you will find my emark at Rapaire was a rejoinder to his assertion that he never makes stuff up. I make no such claim. But when I make stuff up, I don't pretend it's Gawd's own truth.

As for Mister Keats, you must be talking about the poet Keats, while I was speaking about the eldest son of a collateral branch of the family who, in roughly the same time period, _did_ have a grand tour through France, Italy, Greece, and Egypt, and was inspired by it to write _bad_ poetry which he could not get published; threatened with starvation he became a haberdasher and lived to a ripe old age of 89. He is credited with the first improvement to the beaver since the original design.

Re veritas

"If his wife had ever found out how much he went into hock buying that "genuine antique picture of Attic dancing girls" from Mustapha Keiropolous, during Keats' "grand tour", she would have killed him"

1. Keats never married
2. He saw the Urn at the British Museum- He never owned it.
2. He never had a "grand tour" - He went to Rome to try to cure his illness, and died there.



When Keats was my age he had been dead for 25 years.

But he did write 64 of the best sonnets in the English language.

Keats was not a good speller and he actually can thank that for the preservation of his life. If his wife had ever found out how much he went into hock buying that "genuine antique picture of Attic dancing girls" from Mustapha Keiropolous, during Keats' "grand tour", she would have killed him. So she never learned how much he owed on a Grecian urn.

Hey, MOM, they're resurfacing the street in front of my house. It's really noisy out there, and liable to be stinky, but at least I saw what they were up to before I pulled into my driveway. I parked up the block on a side street so I won't get my nice white truck all dirty with their road tar. (This way, if I ever get around to washing the dirt off, it won't leave behind conspicuous dark spots of oil.)

I will have to walk across the street, or maybe walk on the grass down to the bridge and then cross and walk up the other side so I don't get this stuff on my shoes also.

Trouble with the higher crown they're putting on the street, when we get heavy rains I'll get more water washing up on my front lawn and flower beds. (I am at a T intersection, and when the downhill flow from the stem of the T hits the cross bar, at my yard, the stem water pushes the crossbar water out of the street up onto the lawn.) I guess I'll have to go put in some kind of edging or build up a small berm at the curb. I've been thinking about doing that anyway, but this may be the road "improvement" that pushes me to do it.

OR, if you do not make them up, you are reporting someone else's delusions as your own; a sort of psycho-plagiarism, appropriating unreality from others and then mis-owning it. Interesting case study could be made of it, I suppose. Reminds me of an old Punch joke:

"It's these damn butterflies, doctor!! They're all over me!!"

"Vell, don't brusch dem off on ME!!"

I wonder if that might be the secret of deeply persistant patterns of aberration? Obviously the right ownership of a viewpoint is part of the truth about it, so if you have deep-seated packages of thoughts and pictures you have misappropriated from others -- parents, the dogcatcher, babysitters, whatever--it would be really hard to get to a clear understanding of them.

And her shoes are badly wetted,
Now, with painful feet, her limp'll
Hide with scowls her famous dimple.

Rapaire has effectively added the Ewwww! factor to gloves. I was thinking of little patches of moleskin on a sticky backing for feet. In shoes or boots. Works great.
