#5339: Progress, but we're not sure how much.

Today we were able to go to the hospital and get Mrs. Fungus' car, and she drove it back herself--at the cost of being in great pain when we finally got home. She still can't sit up for more than a little while without her foot going off.

...with the result that (as previously noted here) I must stay within earshot of her as much as possible, because she must stay off her feet as much as she can. So I've gotten approximately bugger-all done even though I've been home from work every day except Sunday. Argh etc.

Did get some writing done last week, but none since she was hospitalized. Today we saw doc and Mrs. Fungus is now on two different antibiotics. We'll see how we do.

John C. Wright says that at the debate, Hillary did not accuse Trump often enough of racism, "...and it is the sole argument the Democrat Party has in its arsenal: the party of Jefferson Davis, Nathan Bedford Forrest, Jim Crow, George Wallace, Orval Faubus, Bull Connor, William Fulbright, Exalted Cyclops Al Gore Sr. and Grand Kleagle Robert Byrd."

Hillary must make that charge especially because she does not seem to have the black vote sewn up in its entirety.

Der Lehman Brudern ist goink to go belly up! Deutsche Bank is in trouble; as Denninger says, "Their total derivative exposure grossly exceeds the entire net value of everything in Germany!" (Emphasis his.)

Germany cannot bail out Deutsche Bank, not even if it confiscated all private property in the country. There simply isn't enough money to do it.

We are probably screwed.

Hooray for high-speed FAIL!

Artificial meteorites. The video glosses over what is being tested here--the delivery system for nuclear warheads--but I'll agree that the sight of the reentry vehicles, glowing white hot, streaking through the clouds, is pretty damned cool.

If those were functional nuclear bombs, though, they'd probably go off some distance up--a kilometer or more--as airbursts are more efficient. Standing near the target area you wouldn't see them hit the ground, and you certainly wouldn't live to tell about it.

I did like the video, though.

Anyway, we were up pretty early this morning for Mrs. Fungus' doctor appointment. I think I'll go take a nap.
