Woo hoo!

Just hang on 'til the singularity, whatever you do.   :)

Imagine what Elon's chip in the head will be capable of. 

Full speed communication, up and back.  Meatsticks be damned.  Full speed ahead!

Yeah, I know, OK, I'll get it done this summer. I have a new design that will be pretty cool. The eyes are getting better. Rode my ebike home from the shop today. that was interesting.

I had a good friend that did a lot of flights into Mexico. That plane with the broken gear might be one of his, though he usually did most of his ditching on this side of the border. I don't think he surfed though. We got into a tiff over his girlfriend. She later sold him out to the DEA, so I guess he won that one--or maybe I did. I connected with him on Facebook a few years ago. He's a preacher in Oklahoma now. I'd rather just be shot.

Well, you got me there.

sigh. 

i was trying to remind you of our conversation about the RC rudder project for the Bullet 17. 

Ring a bell? 

No worries, I know you have a long list of stuff to do.

Hmm... 

But I don't think you need two eyes! 

Look what this guy does and he's stone blind!  From birth!

Don't see you body steering that Surfski. You need a Va'a version Epic--call it the 18+. Bring provisions--it's a long way to Tahiti.

Had to edit--too much scotch before supper.

Interesting. I used to live in a house in Forest Heights in Portland, which is a large McMansion development owned by Naru ltd. The Wikipedia listing for Naru documents the sad tale of the disappearing island and accompanying environmental disaster, and the last few lines mention Forest Heights, as one of the few beneficial investments the islanders made. In other words, I lived in the neighborhood that bird poop made.

MJB, I agree with the list, and I think the Gorsuch nomination is a good one. But that's pretty scant stuff for the first hundred days. In Trumps defense, I don't think he expected to win, and his team didn't do the usual prep work to take power--they started from a clean sheet. On the other hand, WTF--didn't expect to win? Would anyone accept that as an excuse from anyone else? He needs to stay the fuck off twitter and act like a president, or he's going to dig a hole that the republicans will never crawl out of. Probably already has.

And anyone out there with liberal leanings shouldn't celebrate--the left is going to be the next in the barrel. Somehow the swings need to damp out. Obama did a lot of damage and little good. Trump is amplifying that. What's next? Probably not good.

Has Trump had ANY successes yet?


First 100 Days:
1.  Institute a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health)
   
   
2. A requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated 

3.  A lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government
   
4. I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership
   
5.  Lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward
 
6. Begin the process of selecting a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on my list, who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States

7. Begin the wall

I doubt Jimmy is gonna put a foot rudder on it--he hates 'em. It will be body steer and suck it up. That tail will help though.
