Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly :)

The Spacex satellite launch was good but the stage 1 booster landing failed.

Elon Musk @elonmusk

Ascent phase & satellites look good, but booster rocket had a RUD on droneship 10:04 AM – 15 Jun 2016

Elon Musk @elonmusk

Looks like thrust was low on 1 of 3 landing engines. High g landings v sensitive to all engines operating at max. 10:06 AM – 15 Jun 2016

Elon Musk @elonmusk

RUD = Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly :)
10:07 AM – 15 Jun 2016

Elon Musk @elonmusk

Upgrades underway to enable rocket to compensate for a thrust shortfall on one of the three landing engines. Probably get there end of year. 10:14 AM – 15 Jun 2016

Dorothy Parker on Writing

“If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second greatest favor you can do them is to present them with copies of ‘The Elements of Style.’ The first greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they’re happy.”

Pure joy – Watch this musk ox calf splash in a kiddie pool

Alaska Dispatch – Don’t believe it? Then consider this video taken by Hanna Sfraga at the University of Alaska Fairbanks Large Animal Research Station this week. Workers at the research facility noticed that bottle-raised musk ox calves love playing with their water dishes, so they decided to get them a full kiddie pool to see how they’d react.

“As you can see, this little boy was very excited,” Sfraga wrote in a Facebook message Thursday. “Musk ox calves ‘play’ by hitting and stomping on things, so he must just really love the feeling of stomping in the water!”

Of course he does, because this baby musk ox is all of us

Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) prays for Obama’s Death & The Extinction of His Family

from TPM 6/10/16
Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) raised eyebrows at a conservative confab on Friday by offering a prayer for President Barack Obama:

“In his role as President, I think we should pray for Barack Obama. But I think we need to be very specific about how we pray,” Perdue told the audience at the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference in Washington, D.C. “We should pray like Psalm 109:8 says, that says, ‘let his days be few.’” http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/david-perdue-let-obamas-days-be-few

8 May his days be few;
may another take his office

9 May his children be fatherless,
his wife, a widow

10 May his children wander and beg,
driven from their hovels.

11 May the usurer snare all he owns,
strangers plunder all he earns.

12 May no one treat him with mercy
or pity his fatherless children.

13 May his posterity be destroyed
their name rooted out in the next generation.

14 May his fathers’ guilt be mentioned to the LORD
his mother’s sin not rooted out

15 May their guilt be always before the LORD,
till their memory is banished from the earth

16 For he did not remember to show mercy,
but hounded the wretched poor
and brought death to the brokenhearted.

17 He loved cursing; may it come upon him;
he hated blessing; may none come to him.

18 May cursing clothe him like a robe;
may it enter his belly like water, his bones like oil.

19 May it be near as the clothes he wears,
as the belt always around him.

20 May this be the reward for my accusers from the LORD,
for those speaking evil against me.


21 But you, LORD, are my Lord,
deal kindly with me for your name’s sake;
in your great mercy rescue me.


Why folks hate government in general and cops in particular…

Oklahoma HP Uses New Device To Seize Money During Traffic Stops

Posted: Jun 07, 2016 Updated: Jun 09, 2016 By Aaron Brilbeck, News 9

OKLAHOMA CITY -You may have heard of civil asset forfeiture.

That’s where police can seize property and cash without first proving a person committed a crime; without a warrant and without arresting them, as long as they suspect that the property is somehow tied to a crime.

Now, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol has a device that also allows them to seize money on prepaid cards.
[Edit note – Like a debit card, or any other cash card.]

It’s called an ERAD, or Electronic Recovery and Access to Data machine, and OHP began using 16 of them last month.

Here’s how it works. If a trooper suspects a person may have money tied to some type of crime, the highway patrol can scan and seize money from prepaid cards. OHP stresses troopers do not do this during all traffic stops, only situations where they believe there is probable cause.

“We’re gonna look for different factors in the way that you’re acting,” Oklahoma Highway Patrol Lt. John Vincent said. “We’re gonna look for if there’s a difference in your story. If there’s someway that we can prove that you’re falsifying information to us about your business.”
