Thank you Bee-dubya-ell, thank you! talking about something other than the weather! It is only one step above computer stuff, and we all know that Mom doesn't like us talking dirty like that. Behave, and if you've not got anything to say, don't say it!

Now, living 100 yards from a police station, how long before I get stopped over the swords I'm carrying about too much at the moment? I think the latest anti-knife campaign started 3 weeks ago.
Any correct guesses may win a small and mysterious prize!

Explaining why google has picked up car credit as the thing we need would also be good...

It seems there's always something interfering with the quality time I want to spend out in my yard. 'Puter stuff again this weekend (sorry, MOM, that's all I'll say about it, 'cause I've almost finished shopping for all of the stolen bits now.) I have a few down branches, and I have to put up a couple of sections of fence. I did fill my lawnmower gas can this afternoon, so I'm ready for the season.

14 to go to a really big one, so Rapaire, if you're aiming at it, you'd better be paying attention.

They're not switchblade swords are they, Bunn? You can't conceal 'em can ya? I mean, when you go walking down the street with them don't people go, "Hey! There's a guy with some swords!"? Then whatta the police need to be worried about? When's the last time someone in Scotland was attacked by someone wielding a sword?

And anyway, if the cops crack down on knives won't it be kind of hard on the restaurant trade? People will have a hard time eating their steaks and chops with forks alone. Will sausages be the only kind of meat allowed?

Well, usually swords aren't considered concealed weapons, although I guess that if they were in sheaths they might be, if the cop was an idiot.

It's like flintlock pistols and rifles. They ARE weapons, but when was the last time you heard of someone using one in a holdup or shootout? "Stand and deliver!" went out a few years ago, unless you're a politician.

However...

I was talking with a fire-eater at a renaissance faire a few years ago who claimed to have had one of those "Crocodile Dundee 'That's not a knife, this is a knife!'" experiences. He said he was busking in some city in the wintertime and was wearing a long cape over his usual costume which included a cutlass. The punks who tried to roll him for the money he'd collected during the day changed their minds when he flipped his cape back and nonchalantly pulled 24-inches of silvered steel from his scabbard.

Those Ren Faire and SCA people do like to play with knives.

Bee Dubya I don't know about among the Renn Faire crowd, but in the SCA there is an apocraphyl story about the first female knight in the SCA getting held up in New York after and SCA event. She was wearing a cloak over her costume, and the guys demanded her money she refused. One took out a knife, and she pulled out her sword and said "I'll see your six and raise you 39" It would be neat if it were true, I don't know if it is or not, but it sounds awfully similar to your story.

Bunn you carry those swords around in a bag don't you? I figure if the cops stop you for some other reason and decide they really don't like you you might get in trouble, but I can't imagine them stopping you on the possibility that there might be swords in your bag. It seems pretty absurd that a knife crime law is affecting swords, couldn't they right in some kind of exception? I've never heard of swords used in street crime, murder with swords. They're just too hard to hide.

Swords can be concealed weapons. They have really strict concealed weapons laws in California, and some of the swords you can't buy because of it are umbrella swords, cane swords, and katana with no hand gaurd, which in my opinion still looks like a katana but apperently you might somehow think it was just a stick I guess.

Nude swordsman attacks churchgoers
Eleven people have been injured in a sword attack at a church in south London.

A naked man wielding a 3 ft (91 cm) Samurai sword burst into St Andrew's Roman Catholic church in Thornton Heath, Croydon, during Sunday Mass.

The man indiscriminately attacked parishioners - injuring four of them critically - before he was overpowered by members of the congregation.

Police have said they are holding a 26-year-old local man in custody.

That guy was obviously wigged. He just happened to have a sword available. If not, he would have used a pitchfork, a cricket bat, a length of pipe or the ever-popular fireplace poker. When's the last time someone used a sword to commit a crime in which psychosis wasn't a factor?

Well, hmmm...when I was in grad school at Case Western Reserve (Cleveland, Ohio, and home of the famous Michaelson-Morley Experiment for all you physics buffs) the local SCA had a seperate "house." One Spring evening, when the SCAers were all sitting inside polishing their halberds or whatever SCAers do of an evening, they heard some serious screams from just outside. Seems like the members of a local gang were beating a young kid. Being good citizens, the SCAers grabbed maces, swords, warhammers, rapiers, morning stars, and other such stuff that is found in every American home, slammed on their helms, and ran to the rescue. Seldom, if ever, has Cleveland seen a gang of gangers being chased down the Euclid Avenue by a bunch of weapon-wielding oddities. The cops, who eventually arrived, were impressed and applauding the good citizenship of the SCAers. The gang, which was trying to form, left the area to SCA.

(This was reported in one of the local newspapers, but it was 28 years back....)

In this passage, from the last full poem, "The Passing of Arthur," the dying Arthur commands Bedivere to dispose of Excalibur. The figure of the sword is important in both Idylls and Beowulf, as discussed below.

There drew he forth the brand Excalibur,
And o'er him, drawing it, the winter moon,
Brightening the skirts of a long cloud, ran forth
And sparkled keen with frost againts the hilt;
For all the haft twinkled with diamond sparks,
Myriads of topaz-lights, and jacinth-work
Of subtlest jewellery. He gazed so long
That both his eyes were dazzled as he stood,
This way and that dividing the swift mind,
In act to throw; but at the last it seem'd
Better to leave Excalibur conceal'd
There in the many-knotted water-flags,
That whistled stiff and dry about the marge.
So strode he back slow to the wounded King. (220-33)

NEILLSVILLE, Wis. Feb 26, 2005 ? A 63-year-old man is charged with sexual gratification with an animal for allegedly having sex with calves.


Harold G. Hart, of Neillsville, allegedly told police that he routinely stopped at a Greenwood farm, usually after bar closing or on trips to strip clubs near Marshfield or Neillsville.


A criminal complaint filed in Clark County Circuit Court said the farm's owners installed a motion detector on Jan. 22 after regularly seeing footprints and vehicle tracks on their land. Around 4 a.m. the next morning, a sensor sounded and Hart was caught leaving the barn, but Hart allegedly said he just used a bathroom in the barn and had never been there before.





Hart told police he had sex with heifers before he went into the service in 1963 and resumed about a year ago at the farm. He admitted to using a rope to tie calves around the neck and estimated he had been to the farm "at least 50 times," according to the complaint.


He told police he never had sex with animals while maintaining a relationship with his a girlfriend or his wife, the complaint said.


Hart also is charged with disorderly conduct and two counts of obstructing an officer. Each charge carries up to nine months in jail.

Real, nitty-gritty, honest-to-God physics that disproved the existence of "ether." It was conducted with mirrors and a light source on a site that is now part of the Cleveland Transit tracks (visit it carefully or you'll get run over by a metro train). You can read all about it here.

(I spelled Michelson's name wrong. I've apologized and we spent last evening quaffing a few. As a result of our discussion he has a new experiment he's going to try that involves lithium VI deutride and plutonium 239. He says that it'll be a "real wowzer!")

Amazing how information eddies build up around here. Anyone else listen to Morning Edition today and the "web extra" piece by Joe Palca about the science art of Ned Kahn? At one point, Kahn described showing an art piece to some weather scientists that gave a visual display of how a gust of wind worked. One of them noted that the piece demonstrated little "waves" of wind pushed along in front of the main gust. Something they had wondered about but never seen proved. Listen to the story for a more coherent telling of the episode.

everything and anything can be explained through the fact that imagicons are the basic building block of the pysical and non-physical universe. since they have no wieght, length, breadth,depth , colour, spin or charge they are quite difficult to explain or to prove. Plus, since they are highly sensitive to the influence of observation any experimentation to prove their existance is flawed.

It is theorized they have various emotional states, chielfy embarressment - which is why they don't like to be observed.

Imagicons have assorted energy levels, just as quantum level of energy can be found causing orbital delta in atomic orbits, but in imagicons, instead of esentially defining the elemental natur e of an atom, the energy states define the cognitive capabilities and energies of the imagicon. These range from slow black-looking imagicons which typify the attention of extremely apathetic or death-oriented individual, through various bands of attention energy that respond to symbolism, trickery, effort, thought, negative emotion, positive emotion, displaced knowing (knowing about), denied knowing (not-knowing things) and various degrees of pure knowing.

Just as composites of atoms with different orbits and numbers of electrons have been tabulated into the Periodic Table, it is possible to create an Attitudinal Chart from the various elements made up of imagicons with different numbers and degrees of orbital energies.

This work will finally make a science out of the incompetent meandering bullyragging opinionated ineptitude that passes for psychology and psychiatry.

MM's basic observation that imagicons are undetectable by normal physical-range metering is absolutely correct. The use of the word "energy" in these descriptions should not be confused with mechanical, thermal, atomic, luminal, electrical or radiant energy as found in physical systems.

Qualities equivalent to spin have been identified yielding attribute-names such as hope, fear, introv, extrov, reaching, withdrawing, causation, effect, percept and decide. The blending of these quark-like categories is what accounts for the amazing variety of viewpoints and experiences among living beings.

The imagicon and the ficton must both fit within the MSSM, but this would be easily done, I think. I am currently thinking about gluons that, within a fermi of each other, might collect and form a glueball. If this is true -- and I see no reason why it should not be -- then gravitons would form graviballs, imagicons imagiballs, fictons fictballs, bluons bluballs, and hardons hardballs.

The photon, while it has a spin of 1, has only two spin states (polarizations) allowd -- most spin-1 objects can be in three states, +1, 0, and -1, but the photon is massless and is missing the 0-spin state. The W and Z also have spin one, but they have all three spin states allowed. The gluon and the graviton are also missing the zero-spin state.

In addition, in the MSSM, there are five (!) Higgs bosons, three neutral ones, h, H, and A, and two charged ones, H+ and H-.

Here's the boson counting for superpartners:

Neutral Standard Model bosons (and extra Higgs for the MSSM)

photon (2 spin states)
Higgs (3 particles, each with no spin)
Z(3 spin states)

Their superpartners have the same quantum numbers and can mix. There are therefore four spin-1/2 "neutralinos" in the MSSM (each has two states, for a total of eight states, to match the eight total states above). Each of the four neutralinos can have a different mass.

The gluino (superpartner of the gluon) has spin 1/2, with two states to match the 2 polarization states of the gluon. These all have the 8 color states. This one doesn't mix with the others because it has color charge.

The gravitino (superpartner of the graviton) has spin 3/2, and so has four allowed spin states, to match the four spin states of the graviton. The gravitino doesn't mix either; it has different interactions from the neutralinos.

The charged bosons are the

W+ (3 spin states)
H+ (1 particle with no spin)

and there are two spin-1/2 "charginos" (mixtures of the superparters of these four states). The negatively-charged bosons correspond to negatively-charged charginos.

That just about does it!


I'll say!!
