#6203: As usual, I'm not alone

An apt discussion of the LIGO experiment. I don't buy the "aether" argument, but it does occur to me that it's just possible that what LIGO detected was some unheretofore-unknown property of spacetime. Maybe dark energy or something.

Point is, some actual real scientists are also skeptical. That's not a bad thing, either.

I agree, the best thing to do with a volcano is not to be anywhere near it. Okay, anything that emits that much gas at high enough a velocity to propel molten rock a hundred feet in the air is bad news.

Seattle proves it's a leftist shithole. There's a new tax in town! Enjoy!

Today I got word that they wanted to put me on semi-permanent overtime for the next five weeks. So, until the end of June, Mondays will be a bit difficult. I don't mind, though; it's money and brownie points.

Jeep's been pretty well-behaved, stumble-wise. She gave a couple of hard jerks this evening when I was accelerating in top gear. Seems like the stumble most typically occurs in two operating regimes: 1) closed throttle and low engine speed; 2) open throttle, and loaded in top gear. If you look at how an ignition system works, you find that these are the regimes where it has to work hardest.

Hoping to change plugs tomorrow. I have to cut the grass, too. *sigh*
