Feeling blue is not all bad

July 28, 2013

When I was a little girl, my dad and I would duet — he on guitar, me on voice. One of his favorite albums was Joni Mitchell’s “Blue.” I liked the song “River” best....

So when's the launch date? (For your cancer-curing invention, not the top of your head.)

dk, once again, why wont the liberals, who believe in the power of govt employee, grants an education invent this. They have plenty of money to spend. I spent about $20,000 thats it. It was a mind thing. something i see lacking in people . we can thank darwin and democrats for this. So keep on mocking.remember learned people like you, doctors and the like fought antiseptic technique and fought anesthesia . They were smart in their own minds like you and your friends. aint learning great Dk, look at what you hindered ! How many died and suffered because of people like you ? Untold millions.

now dk, do you and your learned friends actually deny that there could beings or even just forces that are just the wave thing in the 2 slit experiment ?o you deny heisenberg uncertainty ? You are smarter than all the nobel winner. in your own mind. do you and your friends deny Feynmans statement, that 2 slit is the biggest key to science ? poor dk and friends, unlearned. If so, you are dumber than ever because there are beings and forces composed of particles, that would be us unlearned dk. You keep on mocking. I keep reading and tinkering. who is farther ahead here dk ?

dk, it shows how ignorant you and your friends are ! The cell is not the unit of life. It is flat earth to say that it is. You have no idea what strong force is. neither do your friends. The physicists have an inkling , but that is all.the fool has said there is no god,. The scientific fool says there is no strong force.for they are the same. Dk, thats you and your friends. You literally have no idea what i am talking about. Thats how divorced you are from reality. your friends too.

“...he is angry because he cannot figure it out...”

No, I’m actually laughing – along with some of my direct-reports this morning (engineering managers, two of whom really ARE patent holders) – after our review of this thread.

One asked if we could license the steiner-mirage to use for virtual rate centers (for digital voice origination/termination). I told her – her, mind you – that it would only garble the calls along with any rational thinking.

Congrats! You should be honored that this is now on the corkboard in my office! I only have room for three steiner-rants, so I had to take one down that, surely by mistake, had one sentence that almost made sense.

(Sorry, Sarah, hijacking again, but your NYC friends are probably laughing right along with the rest of us while saying, “Whew! You got out of there just in time before you fell under a steiner-spell.”)

Someone claims to have invented something that not only increases gas mileage 25% but ALSO cures cancer! Wow! At the same time? Can it also dice carrots?

Why not be magnanimous and share that with all of civilization? Why not end suffering? Or at least engineer it so that it only works on registered Republicans.

Oh, wait – “Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you...”

I read a Motley Fool analyst’s report yesterday. I thought of Stoner because it recommends moving out of aluminum and into copper. Good idea – that’d make a sturdier cap to keep the aliens’ voices away!

dk, with rare exception, curie etc, women do not have the intellectual power to awaken. They are put together from conception quite differently. read who got what nobel prizes in history. facts bear me out, not you or the women. I like women singers cuz they are cute Taylor swift, Shakira, etc. So please read some history. thats is the biggest thing i see in the posters here. they are so sure, but know so very little. So tell me why have you ignoreed all my neat little historical facts, why i wont divulge the secret, why liberals here support democratic control of education. I put before you readers and liberals, govt employees , activist women this quandary. If govt policies are needed and teachers are to be supported, how is it that noone has arrived at steinertron technology ? too ignorant to figure it out ? The blues from darwin ?

dk shows his stunning lack of knowledge, that energized fuel will will cure cancer. he is mistaken as usual.I said the steinertrons, in another mode of operation will yield up remedies for cancer. He ignores why i wont divulge the secret. he is angry because he cannot figure it out. The anti frackers love Saudi arabia for if no fracking, no threat. A huge chunk of oil is simply burned for heat. Tesla was mistaken on a number of things. the intellectual power of women is one of them. Science proves me right. I have read his story and much much more. Dk does not know what he does not know , so he seems sure of himself. Dk, with his impressive education, shows why over educated pewople just cant think fundamentally. so they mock and mock.

Getting back on topic, some other female folk singers from the Joni Mitchell era I’ve listened to include: Carole King, Maria Muldaur, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Laura Nyro, Mary Travers, Emmylou Harris, Janis Joplin, Bonnie Raitt, Janis Ian, Joan Armatrading, and I’d include the non-rock side of Linda Ronstadt, one of my all-time favorite artists, male or female.

And Sarah, from the jazz side, listen to the stylings of a Miles Davis contemporary, pianist Bill Evans. You won't be disappointed.

You’d written “my energized gas has been proved in lab and driving around. 25% increase in mileage, steinertron, no chemicals.” And now it will cure cancer, too?

WOW!

But you don’t monetize it because: (a) you hate society in general, including those suffering from a terrible disease; (b) you love Saudi Arabia and don’t want to lessen our dependence on foreign oil; (c) you hate clean air; (d) you don’t need the gazillion dollars it’d earn you; (e) you’re allergic to multiple Nobel Prizes, and; (f) you’re miffed because the Dewey Decimal System doesn’t cover those ancient texts.

This quote is from Steven Wright, but I think he had you in mind - - "When I die, I'm leaving my body to science fiction."

Um, no, the Telsa quotes were not from his autobiography. Did you ever read it?

And for all your disparaging comments about women, it must be very disappointing to read the following from your demi-god:

"It is not in the shallow physical imitation of men that women will assert first their equality and later their superiority, but in the awakening of the intellect of women.”

“But the female mind has demonstrated a capacity for all the mental acquirements and achievements of men, and as generations ensue that capacity will be expanded; the average woman will be as well educated as the average man, and then better educated.”

“I had always thought of woman as possessing those delicate qualities of mind and soul that made her in thee respects far superior to man. I had put her on a lofty pedestal, figuratively speaking, and ranked her in certain important attributes considerably higher than man, I worshiped at the feet of the creature.”

Boy, that must really hurt, huh?

where is judeye, marcia, robert and all the other learned liberals ? Do you posters just mentioned know what i am talking about. The learned judeye, giving teachers raises, etc, going green. See what you are missing ? you dont know what you dont know, dk included and i am called insane. Any advanced science will appear to be magic is the quote, for dk ! liberals ?

dk, too bad you dont know foundational science, the ability extract what the expertiment is actually exposing or running on as facts. If you knew foundation science as well as you know quotes, you would have it by now. your impressive education is your downfall, it holds you back. You need to limber up your thinking. I only have a 4 year science degree.but i read a lot. I read somewhere that reading just a half hour a day on any subject for a length of time makes you an expert. I have been reading ancient texts for 35 years.And a lot more than a half a hour a day.plus seeing industrial machines and how they operate is a plus. Flipping burgers would not have done it. I needed the machine experience from industry. My biggest electric motor i saw was 500 horse.

Dk, you keep missing why I dont go public with this. The biggest reason is i am waiting for the learned libs, our beloved teachers union who control the schools to teach it. The bible as science, lets hear the howls libs. The dumbacrats control the educational system. As long as that is the same, nothing will change. Christopher, where are you with your beloved public employees ? look at what they hold back ! there is more too, but dk wont believe it. The steinertrons will yield up several anti cancer remedies too dk. Do you know why ? Because the cell is not the unit of life. Only flat earth people like dumbacrats believe that the cell is. because obama believes Ho chi minh was inspired by america and you did not build that, I will not divulge how the machines work.

Answer the question: If you’re such a brilliant chemist with a “secret invention gleaned from secret texts” to increase gas mileage 25%, why don’t you monetize the product?

dk is getting frustrated. Notice he never comments on my neat historic facts. hey dk, again I say, if i told you the products, i would be identified in a second. the libs might torch my house as i disagree with them. This really bothers dk. he just does not understand that life is more complex than what is taught in textbooks. something for the gals, to give them the blues. There has been no woman i know about that had the abilities, the picture abilities and the other ones mentioned by him in his auto biography, My Inventions. It caused a stir when published in installments 100 years ago. Its still available . read it. There has been no woman I know of that could compete with him,not even curie. I just wanted to give you the blues. You seem to love them.

No need to apologize, DKexpat. Not sure why, but this quote by Georgia O'Keeffe seems appropriate for this thread: "Sun-bleached bones were wonderful against the blue - the blue that will always be there as it is now, after all man's destruction is finished."

Thank you all for reading, and commenting.

Let’s see...you can’t name the products that have made millions, saved millions of lives, and are used every day by everyone. Of course not. Of. Course. Not.

You also claim to have invented a way to increase gas mileage 25% for pennies on the dollar. So why don’t you monetize that? You’d be hailed worldwide as the savior of civilization! You’d singlehandedly turn around the economy! You’d receive a Nobel Prize!

What's holding you back? Need to first consult the ancient texts first or a séance for Telsa?

And, as requested, here’s your quote - - “The edge: There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.” ~ Hunter S. Thompson

hey dk, who else would agree with tesla abilities, quoted as you love quotes from his auto biography, my inventions. Why Ignatius Loyola, founder of the jesuits.even hitler feared the jesuits as he feared assasination. a jesuit priest actually had a chunk of relativity before einstein. The jesuits or at least some of them changed the world. they really did. You would call them insane then. we owe a lot to ignatius loyola, more than you think. got asny more quotes , dk ?

dk and his quotes, judeye and the blues. Clueless as to how the humans behave. The women stuff is from books written by women judeye. amazing yuou miss that.you celebrate the blues, mental illness ! right from your own post,, unbelievable. judeye, take your abilities , multiply by billions and see why women lag in the world. You are living proof.dk, just does not understand the famous burbidge wuote, how to abstract the scientific principle behind the experiment. he puts endless quotes about insanity etc. dk, talking to people like you who dont understand foundation science or how the world is made and functional is futile, but fun. It shows how well the democrats and darwin have dumbed down the world. Living proof right in all these posts.

this is for dk and the gals. The peculiar mental abilities of tesla, the guy who gave us the industrial revolution via ac current. As far as i can tell, nearly all gals and just a few men have tesla ability i will describe. Dk, I bet does not. From his auto biography he describes a mental ability that he felt pain when a cause he was associated with was attacked.He believed in a cosmic medium that transmitted the impulses to our minds. Now for the meat of the issue. he believed that humans are automata, controlled by outside influences, tossed like corks on the water. From this ability arose his inventions. A very rare ability, sorned and scoffed at.There is more, a very sensitive person wil be able to sense impulses and avoid the perils associated with the bad ones. This from the man described as preternatural by his associates.A genius by einstein. dk would demand more proof. the gals would get the blues, vote democratic. tesla believed this abilty could be trained into us.
