Just a Dumb Doctor of Physics...

Postby DrCharbonneau » Thu Jan 10, 2013 2:02 pm

Thought I'd give this forum a try. The sign up video was interesting. Don't they call that description of Liberty Anarchism?

I've seen a number of prepping sites that are dominated by Ye Olde Republican philosophy. I've often found it difficult to express a good idea on those. So here I go testing the water.

I'm an eccentric scientist, but neither a mainstreamer nor deceiver nor disloyal to what I believe in, thus not a hypocrite.

Welcome, Dr. C. I'm pretty new here myself and have sometimes found it politically challenging, to be honest. So I'll be curious to see your good ideas.

Cheers from Oregon,

As of the moment, I'm just blundering forth, as Arlo Guthrie might put it.

Consider this:
If you grab your friend's calc 2 assignment and, with a flick of your Bic, incinerate the valued and hard work of the paper, did you just use a weapon of math destruction? :D

Welcome to the site!

As for politics, I have found with have a mix of various outlooks. If a thread is to political for you, just do not read it, still lots of good discussion on rice and such.

I like the palindrome.

I just use my real world name for simplicity and honesty. :floppytongue: quite a plethora of emoticons. Should a floppy tongue be associated with a hard disk?

Agreed. At times I have a devil-may-care attitude about offending anyone with my political beliefs, but since I am bombarded with the opposite beliefs nearly 24/7, I feel I'm just evening things out with my two cents.

A warm welcome to APN from the high desert, Doc! Great to have a scientist aboard, I grew up with one in my house, my older brother. You can probably guess that I didn't have a "normal" upbringing with him in the house, we didn't "fight" in our house, we had...chemical warfare! :nuke: How many other kids in the neighborhood were bombarded with stink bomb tubes stuck under their bedroom door? How many other kids got chased down the hall with a WMD such as a lighter and mom's Aqua Net?? How many other kids in the neighborhood had guinea pigs running amok under their beds because their brother was a mad scientist? :evil:

How many neighborhood kids were not ALLOWED to come to our house, because their parents all said "that BOY over there is going to BLOW UP the house one day, you AIN'T allowed to go over there!" How many other neighborhood boys had a bedroom full of bunson burners, tubes, shelves and shelves of all sorts of chemicals and glassware, and a huge chalk board filled with theories and problems?? I'll have to say, it was quite an interesting childhood...to say the least!

Thanx for the welcomes. After a bit I'll probably give some of the non-hyperbolic skinny on EMP's and better protection than Faraday Cages as they exist. Some of my recent studies have involved predicting solar activity by using basic ephemeral data and I had a 95% accuracy last year.



This thread is a log of Spaceweather items that depict the accuracy. Spaceweather hasn't given me any flack about it yet. Why would they? It's free promotion for them and an example of their worth.

I notice there's a for sale area. I'd appreciate a mod giving me the skinny before I offer a link to plans I'm ready to sell. (Do you have zee papahs old man? It could be much eeziah if you have zee plans... :D)

DesertDweller: Our whole neighborhood, where I grew up, was like that. Somewhere between my home built robot and my Gibson SG Special resided a babe magnet. I was one of the luckiest nerds in the school... sort of. ;)

A thought just bubbled to the surface:
If Alicia Keyes was playing a character on "The Walking Dead" and was torched by one of the humans, would she have to sing "This Ghoul Is On Fire?"

Here's a question for the mods... Is it true that APN is sponsored or owned by the Scientology Church?
