Charlotte Redux

Sometimes I think I’ve wandered through a wormhole into a strange parallel universe. Once again I find myself skating on the underside of the ice. Here’s the backstory. For months, ever since the election, the left-wing fascists of Antifa and others have been rioting in the streets, beating people up, breaking windows, setting fire to…

Overcoming Melanin Deficiency

Me, I’m your average white guy. Well, OK, perhaps below average, but definitely that kind of pinkish color that for some reason we call “white”. I hear the preferred PC term these days is “melanin challenged”. Now, one oddity of our modern times is that average white guys are the one group that it’s still…

Turning Down The Nuclear Heat

In that infamous goat-rope, President Reagan’s merry men secretly sold arms to Iran, which was under an arms embargo at the time. Then they used the profits that they made selling…

If you…

A New Quantum Species

About eighty years ago, Erwin Schrödinger proposed a thought experiment. At that time, one school of ideas about quantum physics held that things could exist in a “quantum superposition” of two different states. However, as soon as someone observed the things in a quantum superposition, the superposition “collapsed” into just one state or the other.…
