Subject: BS: New news *not* about the virus

Virginia is acting like a grownup, passing legislation increasing gun control, protecting abortion rights, and expanding voting rights. They also (finally) got rid of Lee-Jackson day, although, to be fair, when I first moved here we had Lee-Jackson-King day, I kid you not, as the Feds imposed MLK day on top of prexisting L-J day. They eventually moved L-J to the Friday before, making for a 4-day weekend.

Now, *that* will be missed.

What non-virus-related stories are you finding in your local papers? Good news preferred but interested in anything.

The bilby is Australia's very own Easter bunny, but how much do you actually know about it? Forget Easter bunnies, in Australia we're all about the Easter bilby*
The bilby is a small native marsupial with huge ears and a pointy snout that makes it look like a cross between a bandicoot and a hare, but with extra fluffiness.

*We have been assured that the Easter bilby is also an essential worker and will be distributing eggs this Easter.

Prickles has quite a fleece! Will be interesting to see how much it weighs.

We used to have a cat called Prickle, a black and white puss......lived to be 15 or so......our boys gave her the name. When we were bringing her home in the car from the animal shelter she was stretching and 'kneading' as cats do; "she's very prickly" said the boys. And so 'Prickle' she became.

they couldn't move fast enough to get away from the bloke who saw them! The average fleece weighs 5 kilos (11 pounds), these lost 19 kilos (41 pounds) each, but the record for a feral sheep is still 41 kilos (91 pounds) from the sheep found in 2015! Check out the before & after photos.

"Americans are suffering from Trump fatigue to the point of completely giving up." so true, Don. Most everyone I know is hunkered down in this very conservative district and just waiting for their chance to vote out this cretin. Judging from the Democrat turnout and the results in every election since and including the mid-terms,in spite of all the efforts at voter suppression, Americans are highly motivated to remove this malignancy.

Mrrzy, I am confused. I had assumed that Penna was an abbreviation of Pennsylvania but, according to Wikipedia: "Since 2018, three states, Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey have banned underage marriages without exception."

It would appear that whichever state you are referring to is, at least, the 4th.

If one of the participants is underage, how can the marriage be legal?
If it is not legal, why is specific legislation required to ban it?
In the case of child marriages, up to what age are people still considered to be a child?

OK, I should have read the Wekipedia page more thoroughly. I took it that the three states had their bans in place since 2018. In fact, they brought them in at different times and not in the order listed. The page has been recently updated to include Pennsylvania, which is identified further down the page as having brought in the ban this month. Confusion over.

"To ensure that the slice was completely cut, the two pieces of tissue were separated and then rejoined while a clear gap was observed under the surgical microscope," the authors explained in their paper.

"The slow hippocampal periodic activity could indeed generate an event on the other side of a complete cut through the whole slice."

If you think that sounds freaky, you're not the only one. The review committee at The Journal of Physiology – in which the research has been published – insisted the experiments be completed again before agreeing to print the study.

Yesterday somebody landed a small airplane on I-470 in the thriving suburb of Lee's Summit, Missouri. FYI - An 'I' road is an interstate freeway, like a motorway in the UK or the Autobahn in Germany. This was in the middle of the afternoon, and the only mishap was that one wing tipped a freeway sign. (The plane had lost one of its two engines.)

Having driven the freeways of my area (Kansas City) I was convinced that most of the drivers don't know what they are doing, but now my hat is off to the drivers who handled this situation so well.

Thanks, Doug. Now I remember encountering "autoroute."

When I thought more about the airplane landing on the freeway, I realized that the common bad habit of driving in tight clumps paid off for once. The pilot managed to line up with empty space between clumps, and the cars behind let the plane in.

Well, I'm sure it was not that simple. The plane could have been going 140 mph, the DH tells me.

I, who always aim to drive between clumps, would have messed it all up. Good thing I avoid driving on the freeway in town.

You call it driving in clumps which is a good observation but bad conclusion.
Traffic actually moves like a WORM stretching and contracting.
Once cars are slowed by cars in front of them a clump forms. The gap behind is thinned out as they play a brief catch up game. Blood even moves in a similar fashion.

Ha. I guess good themes for PHd dissertations are getting rare.

Massless particles must always move at the speed of light unless it passes through mass. Mass can never go as fast as light.
One of the tricks to slowing light to a halt is creating a cloud of nearly motionless atoms at near absolute zero (-460 degrees Fahrenheit). This is called a Bose-Einstein condensate.
But everything wants to move. Existence is moot and just an aspect of language.

CAN gravitons which move at the speed of light be slowed down or stopped at absolute zero? If so, anti gravity could be manipulated.

Asimov wrote a great short story about someone inventing a gravity-less field and putting it, for demo purposes, on a billiards table, asking a rival scientist (poopoo-er) to play. The cue-struck ball took off at the speed of light, punching a hole through the poopoo-ed scientist, because it was actually a mass-less field and things with no mass travel at the speed of light...

Also one about a quantum black hole which punches a microscopic hole with huge tidal effects through another poopoo-ing rival scientist.

Gravity-less conditions to create a null gravity zone (not anti gravity) is possibly not the problem. How does incredible inertia free accelleration work? If you master the inertia free maneuvering thing perhaps gravity wouldn't even matter. Yeah we always refer to warping space as an answer. Now how do you create a confined parastaltic motion in space time and remain in the center of it, like a turd in a space time intestine? Humans can manipulate mass and even turn it into E.
But have we manipulated space? -nope- I have long postulated that black holes generate space and neutrinos like a wild factory. At least it is a good place to start looking.

articles says - Earth's magnetic field is constantly in a state of flux

Pun not intended I would guess. The unit of Tesla is a measure of what we electrical engineers call magnetic flux.

But the South Atlantic anomaly reminds me of Jupiter's red spot. I have seen experiments with rotating inner core with viscous fluids as thin layers and they often produce a single large eddy. And our molten outer cored is just such a system, a viscous layer trapped. And Earths magnetic field is produced by a rotating core we are told.

Well that's my take. Other than the warning that the magnetic pole reversals won't go in one huge flip, it will most likely appear "reversed" in spots, say those that study these things. Timescale long.

We may get a hint of what to expect any day in our life time. The last big coronal mass ejection to hit the Earth was the Carrington Event in 1859 and it wasn't pretty.

A solar storm of this magnitude occurring today would cause widespread electrical disruptions, blackouts and damage due to extended outages of the electrical grid. - bloody coronas and people think the virus is THE big deal!

A doctor arrived at his surgery one morning to find a large bag on the doorstep. He looked inside and found a new born baby with a note saying "Please look after my child". As a medical professional, he knew that it was a responsibility he could not shirk but there would be so many forms to fill in and he had patients waiting. He took it inside and examined it. As the baby seemed in good health, he decided to deal with his morning patients before handing it over for further care.

The first patient was the local vicar, a hypochondriac whom the doctor knew well. He had suffered every disease known to man and, this morning, was complaining of acute stomach pains. The doctor suspected trapped wind but thought that if, this time, he could convince him that it really was something serious, it might shock him out of his hypochondria. The situation gave him the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone.

He told the vicar to drop his trousers, lie on the examination table and open his legs. The doctor then pressed on the vicar's belly, causing him to let out a long fart. The doctor picked up the baby and said "Congratulations! You have given birth to a healthy boy".
"B..b..but I can't have done" stammered the vicar, "It's not possible!"
"God moves in mysterious ways" replied the doctor.

The vicar, being a good Christian, accepted his apparent responsibilities a brought the child up as his own. When the boy reached the age of 18, the vicar thought that it was time that he knew the truth. It was a difficult conversation but it had to be done. He said "You have always been my son and always will be. You have grown up calling me Dad but, in fact, I am not ACTUALLY you father.

Looking rather shocked at the news, the young man asked "Then who is my father?"

In an anguished tone, the vicar replied "The bishop!"

He said he told the president that in a time with no cure, anything is better than nothing except those things that are worse to your health. The prsident asked if their was vaccine he could have now and Fauci told him he could have a Faucine today. What's a Faucine? Thats where I spit on my hand and shake yours.
