Aloha Snackbar

The shooter in the Colorado Supermarket was a 21 year old, pro-ISIS, anti-Trump, practicing Muslim. The shooting will still be used to vilify white, male gun owners.

EDITED TO ADD: He was clearly radicalized by watching CNN. We should shut them down while more facts are gathered, just to be safe.

Science is a thing

We keep hearing about how cows are releasing carbon into the atmosphere. So lets talk about something called the “Law of Conservation of Mass.” It’s a thing. Now cows, like nearly all living things on the planet, are made of organic compounds. An organic compound is a chemical compound that contains the elements oxygen, CARBON, and hydrogen, which means that they contain carbon-hydrogen bonds.

Again, nearly all living things on the planet get their energy either directly from the sun, or from consuming other living things. The cow gets those carbon atoms by ingesting other living things- namely plants. Plants are largely made of carbohydrates, which are organic compounds.

Where do plants get their carbohydrates from? They make them, using water and carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and energy from the sun.

This process is called the “carbon cycle.” The carbon is absorbed from the air, ingested by the cow, and then either becomes part of the cow or is discharged in the form of cow farts, exhaled CO2, or manure.

The point here is that the cow can’t release more carbon from the atmosphere than it has absorbed from plants. Where does the plant get the carbon? From the atmosphere. It’s a cycle.

Monopoly goes woke

Hasbro is rewriting the Community Chest cards for Monopoly in order to be more woke. I read them, and it is nauseating. Some examples:

  • You volunteer to paint a mural at your local school. Collect $50
  • You volunteer at your local literacy center and learn some fun phrases in a new language! Collect $100
  • You help a local school build a playground- and you get to test the slide! Collect $100
  • You graciously host a group of international students. They appreciate the home cooking! For each house you own, pay $40. For each hotel you own, pay $115.
  • You didn’t shop local! Pay $50
  • You found a wallet on the ground and decided not to return it. Go to jail, go directly to jail. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200
  • You held a neighborhood party- but didn’t recycle your trash. Pay $100
  • You volunteer to run the social media accounts for a non-profit art center, and you meet some pretty talented people. Collect $100

Woke garbage. Still, who plays board games any more?

Physics is racist

Newton’s theory of gravity, and presumably all of Newtonian physics, is “Eurocentric” and must be eliminated so that black people can invent a science that “speaks to them.”

My advice to you

If you find a cache of Civil war era gold bullion weighing in at several tons, you quietly dig it up, cart it off, and KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT before melting it down and selling it off in small batches over a number of years. The last thing that you should do is tell the FBI, because they will take it from you, keep it, and declare its very existence to be classified.

Carbon scam

Three years ago, I blogged about a company that claimed they were making fuel from the carbon dioxide in the air. I outlined the reasons why this was a scam.

Now the same exact company has changed their sales pitch. They are now claiming that they can suck carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, store it in the ground, and the pitch even uses the same pictures and footage.

These companies are using pseudo-scientific mumbo jumbo to trick people into giving them grant money to save the planet.

Teaching the truth

If you believe that there are two genders, you cannot be a teacher in the state of New York, as one teaching student by the name of Owen Stevens discovered. Mr. Stevens was suspended by the state university from his teaching certification program for posting on Instagram that he believes that “a man is a man, and a woman is a woman.” This, they claim, means that he cannot create an environment that is inclusive of all students. His suspension will continue until he completes a reeducation program and renounces his earlier statements. The Dean of the college claims that future teachers are required to support all aspects of homosexuality and gender identity.

To his credit, Mr. Stevens is refusing to do so. The Dean told Stevens that his scientific stance on biology is “in conflict” with the state’s Dignity for All Students Act. A SUNY Geneseo spokeswoman said that the school does not believe that it is infringing on any student’s right to free speech.

“Although we cannot comment on any particular student, SUNY Geneseo respects every student’s right to freedom of speech and expression,” the spokeswoman said. “By choosing to enter into certain professional fields, students agree to abide by the professional standards of their chosen field. At times, these professional standards dictate that students act and behave in certain ways that may differ from their personal predilections.”

Up until this school year, I taught Biology. When we reached the section on human genetics and reproduction, I would talk about how the X and Y chromosomes determined if a person was a male or a female. I would always get the question about transgender. My statement was like this: “When you get down to basics, the Y chromosome has one job: it tells the developing fetus to grow a penis, and tells it to develop male secondary sex and gender characteristics. So a person either has a Y chromosome and a penis, or they don’t. Male or female, that’s it. Anything else is not supported by biology and would fall into the realm of psychology.”

Every once in awhile, a student would reply with: “What about those born with intersex characteristics, where they have both sets of genitals?” To which I would reply, “That is a birth defect, an abnormality in fetal development. When children are born without arms, we do not declare them to be snakes, likewise, a child born with incomplete dual genitalia are abnormal. They do not define the rest of human development. Such individuals are less than one in a thousand live births, and do not excuse people with normal genitalia for the delusional belief that they can select their own biology, even when their DNA plainly states otherwise. That is a psychological problem, not a biological one.”

That statement would mean that I am not qualified to teach in New York.

Gun free zone signs don’t work

A shooting at AdventHealth Celebration. That is a failure of gunfree zone signs. As I have posted before, that hospital has signs up.

The sign is misleading. Chapter 790 only prohibits weapons and firearms in a pharmacy, and even so, law enforcement and those licensed to carry concealed weapons are exempt. Since you are prohibited from carry firearms unless you fall into either of those categories, that particular law is redundant. There are no laws prohibiting a person with a concealed weapons permit from carrying a weapon in a hospital, nor do signs carry the force of law in this state.

Even so, the law prohibiting weapons in a pharmacy does not extend to the entire hospital, just to the portion of the hospital that is the pharmacy. This sign is deliberately misleading, which indicates to me that the SDA church (who owns the hospital) is being less than honest when it comes to this signage.

I ignore the sign and enter with my weapon anyway, and so do the criminals, apparently.

What?

Texans who couldn’t go to work because of the winter storm, they were told that they could either burn vacation or forfeit the pay for the days that they didn’t work. They are incensed, and I don’t understand why.

When a Hurricane hits in Florida, we have it the same way. Not getting paid when you aren’t at work isn’t anything new- why would you expect to get paid when you aren’t working?

Why should their employers pay them for days they were off work? Expecting the company to do that is expecting your employer to insure you against lost wages for acts of nature. Isn’t that what insurance is for?
