Whoever invented the Sinus should be shot, drawn and quartered, keelhauled and have his name put on the Montgomery Ward Mailing List for all eternity. People need sinuses like they need a hole in their head.

The Baroness asked me again what I wanted for my birthday, so I told her. She told me to go to the website, and submit the order.

Deckplans came today for the Beowulf, the Xboat and scout. Did not get the expanded set, yet, as it is April and a bad time for me to make FFE purchases. My birthday is the 27th, and I have made it too widely known that what I want is on their website. Can't risk purchasing something only to be gifted it a few weeks later.

I did fine the Firefly tabletop boardgame and purchased it at Barnes and Nobles. I tried the two FNGS in my area, however neither of them had it. Of course, why would they ...More Read More

"If there are Gods, they do not help, and Justice belongs to the strong; but know that all things done before the naked stars are remembered." Klingon proverb

This is a sentiment that is very useful for justifying the lack of privacy on Lemish. Honesty is the biggest problem in maintaining a lack of political corruption. It starts with fraud, and that fraud leads to theft and the rest of bad stuff that comes from political corruption. Honesty is the only policy that has a chanc ...More Read More

1) complete writeup of "Iteit" or "Sylas' Porcupine", send write up to timerover 51 when complete.

2) Finish travel time tables for Lemish system. Finalize orbits, thereby finalizing astrometrics section of the Lemish writeup.

3) Stat out the following:
.....A) "Cambots" small multisensor drone, that flits about and monitors. Visual, IR, UV, possibly even terrahertz range as well. Mostly government but most news organizations have squadrons of drones as well. They are small roughly half ...More Read More

I think real world politicians are too wedded to lying. The universe does not care one whit what you mean, what you say, nor what you intend to accomplish with your actions. If your mental model of reality is not consistent with reality, the actions you take based on that model will not achieved the desired results. I mean DUH!

Lying is a direct result of intelligence. Once you evolve a mind capable of wondering how things can be different, or "what if?", it is an incredibly short hop to tel ...More Read More

"Okay, so this tall lanky pink skin is in my face about 'Keeping your visor down' when at battle stations. About how it's going to save my life. Yada yada yada"

Sergeant Khazgho Zen pulled his cigar from the side of his snout, and took a deep swallow of beer. The Baron, his face distorted in an embarrassed smile, said behind his own golden mug. "I just got frocked, just before leaving port. Besides, you were a Marine, and it was my space, my watchstation,"

"And this puffed up arrogant lit ...More Read More

"Hey we are not strange in the Corridor!

We are the gateway to the Marches; we are the keepers always on watch; we are wealthy because of our trade and strong because of our duty to the Imperium; we negotiate with and defend against the Vargr. We are guardians and friends, gatekeepers and merchants, nobles and common side by side in a small slice of the galaxy.

Hey I think I like that. Maybe I should make it my signature."

Ken at Sunrise, Duke of Plunge. I really like this as well.

One of the nice things about having a blog nobody reads is that you can publish information in public, without anyone really getting it, except your intended targets.

So congratulations to Jennifer Korsta of Poughkeepsie NY for uncovering the hidden treasure at that place with the thing. Now Jenny, all you have to do to follow the next clue is figure out what that thing is, and where it belongs. I hope you enjoy the loot you have found already, and best of luck to you.

((Based on a long f ...More Read More

How do you give a government unlimited invasion of privacy, without it turning into an "unhappy" police state? By keeping government to its "Proper Function"
Earlier I stated that "Purpose" is different from "Function". Purpose is what an item is "supposed to do" what the operator or creator of the item intended or meant to accomplish by implementing this particular object.

Function is what an item actually does. The universe does not care one bit what we intend, what we mean to accomplish ...More Read More
