A couple of readers have told me to go look at the magnetometers of HAARP because they have been jittering down into the -500 nT area over the past couple of days, and as one reader opined: “Someone is going to get crapped on I can feel it.”
All of which would just be more grist for the mill, except for two things: One is that there was a 6.0 off the Oregon coast this week. 7:30 PM local time and 159 miles off of Coos Bay, Oregon.
Nothing strange about that but did you happen to catch the Huliq articles. Seems a week or so back they ran an article about how UFOs had been see in the Florence, Oregon area, and shortly thereafter, a series of five-foot by five-foot by 20″ high metal boxes were spied up and down the beach.
Fast forward to yesterday and someone has been taking the boxes away.
And what happened in the meantime? A 6.0 earthquake offshore, is what! Check out the coincidence here:
Naturally, this doesn’t prove a damn thing, but it sure is one of those stories which is either a mighty fine case of mass hysteria accompanying the arrival of a quake.
OR, the data upon closer inspection might cause us to take another look. What IF, for example, the “metal boxes” were part of some dark agency dropping in scalar gear to trigger an earthquake in order to prevent a greater quake from happening near a populated area?
What I notices about the reported region is that if I draw lines down 50-miles of beach, I get VERY ROUGHLY a parabolic shaped shoreline, which seems to have its focal point about 25 miles north of where the quake took place!
Like I said…coincidence, or just a damn interesting big “Hmmm…” Oh, thanks for reminding me: Tide at Coos Bay was at the minor high for the day at quake time.
So now all we need are metal looking boxes with advanced antennas that would look like metal and be set into the top of them (design notes on these just happened to cross my desk this week) as I noted in an email to a few friends:
“Gupta, Sharma, & Jain (2007 or so I think, reference paper http://www.ursi.org/proceedings/procGA08/papers/BP1p9.pdf ) did come out with a TCAS ms/p (microstrip patch antenna) but (due to low dielectric constant of the substrate?) it was bulky at 106.8 x 90.17 MM at TCAS frequencies, but wouldn’t that scale to about 35 X29.5 inches for middle of avionics band? “
Which means the so-called metal top couple easily have been a microstrip patch antenna…and a 5′ x5′ substrate would be large enough to accomplish some downlink gain of a control bird… which leaves plenty of room for as much as 1,000 amp-hours of high tech battery, and then some of that pulsed-opposing magnet technology I’ve been thinkering with the disrupt local gravity…and presto! Drop in quake generator.
Wild flights of fancy? Let me know if you know anyone who has seen one of these boxes up close before they disappear… damn interesting coincidences, though, and not too hard on the engineering side, especially if you’ve seen the Boyd Bushman experiments at Lockheed discussed… huh? Just comes down to an engineering problem in the end.
Wonder if that 4.7 quake off Vancouver Island this morning would have been bigger without this precursor?
Thursday at the WuJo
We haven’t been down to the place where strange happenings meet the boyz from hard science, but we haven’t been getting the usual flow of woo-woo reports for a week or two. So, if you have had a run-in with things that shouldn’t work like they did, please send in reports.
Like this guy’s..
George , has any of your readers written you lately and tell you they heard someone shout their name when they are like half sleeping and half awake. last week after getting up and going to the bath room and then crawling back to bed and half here and half out of it I heard someone shout my name, it didn’t seem to be in my head but next to me. I didn’t tell my wife because what the heck. but the other day my wife experienced the same thing and told me. I told her I experienced the same thing last week.
I too had the same thinking happen. Usually, when it does, it’s something like “George, can I have my pillows (sometimes covers) back?” My was about 2:30 AM as well and didn’t seem to be kidney-connected.
Note to Veggie Fans
OK, sure, if you read Gaye’s article on meat glues and other yucky crap that goes into meat, you might be tempted to flee into the arms of the vegetarian movement. But wait! What is (says reader EE)…
“Overall human wheat consumption appears to sicken our body in myriad ways, along with our mind and perceptions of reality … this is an Aarrggh! moment…”
Sure enough, the article “The Dark Side of Wheat” has mean wondering what is safe to eat, besides those blue-green algae pills.
Ionized Water: Scam or Worthwhile?
Speaking of health issues, Elaine’s been reading this and that on how to stay young until we’re in our mid-100′s. (Little does she know, I can’t write that long and we’ll be broke by 95 at the latest…) But she asked me the other day to price one of those water ionizers which were making the rounds.
So, if you have direct experience with one, I’d sure like to hear about it, because all the hard research I’ve been able to find so far seems to come down to scammy…
Placing Your Bets on March
Readers continue to speculate about how life-changing events will work out this spring into summer…
George, I had an idea last night about March 2-9. This is the most benign and least damaging possibility that I can imagine for the data gap. I have noticed that Cliff as of late seems to be anxious and exhausted. He has either lost Igor or will soon. I think the stress and duration of the webbot project might be getting to him based on some of his recent blogs at halfpasthuman. In early March, Cliff reaches a breaking point and decides to end the webbot project. In one year he is rested enough to be humanly curious about the future again. He then starts to dabble again in the project but not even 10% of what he is doing now. TPTB, humanity, internet, economy still continue to chug along as we ever did. The European Union will still be trying to pawn off the empty bag to the greatest fool over PIIGS. No big war with anyone. America still living on economic promises and borrowed/printed money. This would explain the data gap and the small fraction of a resurgence in roughly a year. I thought I would put this possibility out there for you and maybe your readers.
Another reader wonders:
“Could the banksters be behind the push to war?
If the standard Derivatives contract has a War Clause Exclusion (like most regular insurance policies), could it be the banks get off the hook for defaults, when the next world war breaks out? If so, maybe even the USA’s backstop of AIG will no longer be required too!
Could it be that simple??”
A senior and very wise sage down on Wall St. who shall go unmentioned polls some of his friends who advised…
“No escape clauses… The contracts themselves are very specific in the protection the seller provides to the buyer. In the event of a potential trigger the ISDA Determinations Committee convenes to assess and then declares a credit event or not. If a credit event the contract triggers…if not then the buyer continues paying premium until next potential event…”
On the other hand, with 90-million barrels of crude sloshing around at sea, a doubling of oil prices could give the oil trades a nice double – $9-billion, but that doesn’t seem enough dough to get the world into thermonuclear war, or anything, so my money is 15% of big events kicking off in early March and 85% on muddling through. We’ve got lots of experience in the latter.

Playing the Game of “Top-Calling”
Over the past couple of weeks here, I’ve been explaining in step-by-step fashion how I use a simple price-channel system for making long-term market decisions. Although it comes with no guarantees, a look at its latest is worthwhile, especially for people who are in retirement systems which offer limited fund-switching. But, before we get into that let’s have a romp through the news seeing first how our build-up to tensions in the Middle East is going but then considering the possibility that instead of war per se, we may simply be facing the Mother-of-All Crashes next month.
Safer Computing: Swearing Off Cookies
It has been a while since I roared the praises of the Maxa Cookie Manager which you can download and install for a free test drive by clicking here.
To upgrade from the demo to full working is still less than $50 and one heck of a bargain at that, if I do say so.
I am a high-reliability computing kind of guy – and near as I have it figured, the road to a hassle-free computing experience is (like flying an airplane) a matter of going through a proper checklist before popping onto the web:
You need an active cookie manager – because sites you visit can put small bits of code on your computer and some of these are designed for Flash, have no expiration, and can really bugger-up the computing experience. This part gets handled by Maxa Labs’ product which on my system says 184,380 cookies have been removed, 73,881 “web bugs” which can track movement from site to site and such, and I have only 10-active cookies.
Second thing you need is a good antivirus program – and I happen to really like Avira’s Antivir pro.
Then you need to deal with Malware so for this Malware bytes is updated and run daily.
And last, though certainly not least is the firewall and the one in Win 7 works fine.
Like anything in computers, updates are critical so before work every morning, the computer does its update ritual – Check of Maxa (5.3.02 is current) Avira, and Malware bytes.
Toss in a good bit of common sense (example: Don’t open email purporting to be from UPS, IRS, the US Post Office, or anything else that even has a hint of fishy odor to it) and first thing you know, the internet’s actually a useful tool.
“Live on $10,000″ A Year
Having a hard time making ends meet? (Like who isn’t, right?) A good starting point to better match up income with outgo is our $10 e-book “How to Live on $10,000 a Year…or less!”
It’s an automatic download. It’s written in an information dense style: The whole thing runs about 65 pages, but it gives you a vision of how to not only live on the cheap, but also how to migrate up the economic foodchain if you have a little hustle left. A bonus section called “How to Build Anything” should instill confidence if you’ve never taken on a home improvement/home creation project before, too….. Click here for the index and details.
Please pass along word of this site to your friends by simply clicking here to send ‘em a short email. – Thanks!

The Wednesday Reader Memo
As happens on Wednesday’s our report is for subscribers to the premium content site Peoplenomics. Here’s what’s up there:
How to Eat a Book & Reinventing Chess
As we sit around waiting for the (alleged) Consumer Prices report on Friday, I’ve had time this week to work on all three of the book’s I’m writing at the same time, plus having enough time left over to write a daily column, play with the cat, and plan the upgrade the avionics package/wireless network on our old beater-that-flies airplane. Of all the work, though, none has been more satisfying to pursue than the thought-trail which began with Monday’s UrbanSurvival report “Grand Master’s Monday.” It turns out to have dovetailed remarkably well with that book on life as a series of nested recipes or, if you’re an old BASIC writer, it might be stated as Life is an endless string of nested GOSUB commands. Fine brainfood to be sure, but before we get into what I think might lead to breakthroughs in chess-playing ability, we stumble first into the mundane of the morning: our slog through the headlines which begin with Iran playing hardball on oil…
If you are looking for something to read, as thinking people do, then you might want to have breakfast before heading over to my colleague Gaye’s site, BackdoorSurvival, because after you read her article “Meat Glue and Pink Slime. What Evil is Lurking in Yourt T-Bone” you won’t feel like eating meat for a while. (Knowing of the article in advance, Elaine and I had shrimp and lobster ravioli and red wine for Valentines, thanks…)
If you still have an appetite (at least for words) the article we have on our collaborative site [ www.strategic-living.net ] “What Most Gun Nuts Get Wrong” may be worth your time, as it will give you some new ways to look at the crime-fighting problem.
More on the ‘morrow at our usual time. Oh…and subscribers to our Feedburner feed should start seeing their links earlier tomorrow… till then: cheers & beers…
