Heroism

 

The US supersonic presidential jet concept from builder Exosonic.

What good is a high tech jet when you are hauling around a hologram and a ho?

Cribbage, anyone?

Scrimshaw cribbage board, mid- 19th century

Engraved and pierced game board surrounded by an engraved whaling scene of a whale ship and three whaleboats in pursuit of a pod of whales. Each whaleboat is carrying six men and at least two of the boats are fast to a whale. Foliate garland along perimeter. “John Schiff” at end and “J” and “S” above whale ship. Other initials, possibly “O”, “F”, “T” and “C” on underside.

 

Made in China

Health Canada has issued a warning about blue and gray disposable face masks, which contain an asbestos-like substance associated with “early pulmonary toxicity.”

The SNN200642 masks, which are made in China and sold and distributed by a Quebec-based company called Métallifer, had been part of Canada’s public school reopening plan. Students were told that they needed to wear them in the classroom to prevent the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19).

Health Canada, discovered during a preliminary risk assessment that the masks contain microscopic graphene particles that, when inhaled, could cause severe lung damage. “Graphene is a strong, very thin material that is used in fabrication, but it can be harmful to lungs when inhaled and can cause long-term health problems,” reported CBC News. For a while now, some daycare educators had expressed suspicion about the masks, which were causing children to feel as though they were swallowing cat hair while wearing them. We now know that instead of cat hair, children were inhaling the equivalent of asbestos all day long. “If you have this type of mask in stock, we ask that you stop distributing them and keep them in a safe place now,” the provincial government wrote in a directive, which was sent to the education, families, and higher education ministries of Canada.

    • I would advocate for that sort of message on top of the AF1 SST. Something like, “Aliens are bad shots.”

  1. I would like to have a Presidential SST.

    Unfortunately, it would just be a faster delivery system for corruption and incoherent blather, at the present time.

    -Kle.

    • They take so many people with them on junkets and SST’s are small, so you’d need a whole fleet of them to fly to wherever and dump off the politician and parasites. And of course, you’d need to send other slow movers first with the motorcade vehicles, Secret Service advance, etc.

  2. P-Jet – When The Hologram absolutely positively needs to get to China and back overnight so no one, not even him, knows.

    Masks- Natural selection in process, people foolishly putting way too much trust in The Fowch, CDC, and our self-appointed Overlords. By Fall hospitals will look like Third World ebola wards (sad, not funny).

    Irena Sendler- God knew…now, so do we. Doubtful she cared a wit about some committees useless prize…the genuine don’t do heroics for accolade.

    • The hologram can send a laser image of him hobnobbing. It would be embarrassing to send the genuine article.

      Sendler was the real deal. I agree. I’m sure that she didn’t give a damn about a bobble or a certificate.

  3. Nowadays the Nobel has deteriorated to the same level as “end of tour” award packages given out to staff officers in Viet Nam……and elsewhere I’d presume. I think it was Hackworth used to call them “pampered princes” but I digress. When Obama got his Nobel for breathing, that was the end of it as a serious award as far as I’m concerned, and he didn’t even have to wait for his tour to end to get it, either.

    • trump was nominated three times in one year. still didn’t win. so much for white privilege?….i’m always amazed at the guts of people like irena. sure, most people can be heroic in a spur of the moment one-off event, but how many can go day after day into the storm and come out to do it again the next day? those are true heroes. the rest of us just reacted out of instinct or something.

  4. Irene Sendler. Brings to mind Ike’s command.

      • One of my junior high math teachers was a photographer for the Army, and was assigned to document the Camps his division encountered, along with slave-run industries. And it showed. Yet during the late 70’s ‘The Holocaust didn’t occur’ phase, he was challenged at least once about the denial of the Holocaust.

        Yeah. It happened. Even with all the proof. Even with all the old people who died with numbers on their arms. With the piles of rings, gold fillings, the bones, first-hand stories, news reels, everything. Even with all of it, people today are more likely to believe that it didn’t happen. I guess some people did some things….

        • New history is a lot like new math. Facts no longer matter. New history is based on grievances in the present (real and imagined).

          PS — New Math is as racist as Old Math. SAT scores from some demographics are dramatically lower than others, confirming fears of racism – and that’s settled science.

  5. I had read of Irena before. She was a remarkable woman. I think one of the most beautiful things is the end photograph of her; an old woman, smiling. After all she had endured. Witnessing the death and destruction, the ever present anxiety of being caught, the severe brutal acts against her when she was caught, none was sufficient to diminish her humanity. I weep. Irena Sendler is our model of how to conduct ourselves in the coming persecutions.

    Boomsonic (I think that is the name) is an American company currently working on a SST. I think they are very close to flight testing in the California desert near Palmdale.

    The scrimshaw is a fine example of what was common among the whaling fleet at that time. My dad was an ardent aficionado of cribbage, always with a cribbage board in whatever theater. I think he would have been fond of that artwork.

    Whatever they say is as water off a duck’s back to me. I shall still be white and they shall still expose their foolishness.
