That possibility for next spring, that Clif’s encounter with space debris as a possibility peeking out of the long-term data values, which we covered in depth in the Wednesday Peoplenomics report this week, has gained a whole bunch of street creds as “Meteor reports ground Colo. firefighting planes.”
With Earth crossing the galactic ecliptic, something I hadn’t considered until recently was that there might be a whole line of “junk” in that area of space. Let me explain why:
I don’t know how much salt water fishing you’ve done, but think about this: When you are looking for where fish are likely to feed, one of the best places in along tide rips. Those are lines of small bits of debris that are common at the boundary layers between opposing currents.
The big “OH-OH…” is it the question whether the galactic ecliptic might be analogous to the debris collection along the tidal current boundaries.
If what was sighted over Colorado was indeed a meteor (or several) they are a month early to be counted as part of the Perseids showers that occur annually in the August 9-14 range.
The interesting thought problem is whether there would be any difference in density of space-crap at the ecliptic. I don’t recall reading anything about it in the literature about it so might be worth a nickel’s worth of study. Is the ecliptic a kind of “Forbidden Zone?”
It has become almost an article of fact that a meteor shower caused the rash of fires in October of 1871. Not only was that the year of the Great Chicago Fire, but the whole town of Peshtigo Wisconsin perished on October 8, 1871 with between 1,200 and 1,500 people dead in the process.
Since the Great Chicago Fire happened within two days (October 10, 1871) and what became known as the Great Michigan Fires were also October 8-10 - they included Holland, Mainistee, and Port Huron fires – the only leading candidates are meteors or lightning.
The Colorado groundings this week of fire suppression aircraft because of meteor risk may – by this time next year – look curiously timed.
So how big will the meteor be that gives us that global coastal event? About abou 1,350 feet across figures G.A. Stewart (with more detail on the Peoplenomics site). Stu’s website The Age of Desolation is starting to line up with the language hints from Clif’s work to some degree. Odd that Nostradamus would hint at the size of it with some precision. To share more of Stu’s views:
Nostradamus Quatrain I-69
A great round mountain of seven stades, [4247 feet]
When peace will end, war, famine, and flood:
It will roll far and sink great countries,
Even the ancient ones, of great foundations.
A stade is six-hundred and six feet and nine inches. Since Nostradamus mentions a great round mountain, I presume he is mentioning a circumference of 4,247 feet 3 inches, which gives the meteorite a radius of approximately 676 feet.
Quatrain I-69 states that there will be an ocean impact which will “sink great countries”. As you have read in Quatrain V-59, there will be a meteorite strike in Artois, France. And The Preface confirms that there will be multiple meteorite strikes all over the Earth.
Wonderful, just loverly. The arrival of pod-builders is then even more strangely timed…
Profits of Doom?
No, not prophets….profits. We’re talking about the outfit written up in Wired Magazine which is building inland lifeboat pods. Called STATIM (storm, tornado and tsunami interconnected modules) the idea is that even if inland, you still might need a lifeboat because of the possibility of waters reaching far inland.
Able to hold 50 people, the pods start in the $100,000 class but there are options like a desalinization system and EMP reduction options that can add to costs. Pretty darn interesting systems and the timing is, well, eerie given the predictive linguistics for next winter into spring and all that global coastal event stuff…
Problems of Mind Control
So the other day we recounted the adventures of the fellow with the disappearing mouse. But now here’s an even stranger report: The case of the reappearing boat trailer…
“G, Here is an example of what causes peoples “ lost” moment. Their brains are being shorted out by electrical frequencies. Putting things down and having them disappear is just the brain shorting out while trying to save data to the brain-drive! For a moment the brain is convinced the object is not there….not possible.?..it is possible, the traveling hypnotist can do it by words, why couldn’t a frequency work?
So there was my moment today when I passed a guy towing a trailer and it lowered the back end of his pathfinder from the weight. I kept going up over the hill, passing cars along the way, doing a crisp 75. Went down the hill and moved through traffic. Then there was the guy with the trailer that I passed way back…huh?”
Some kind of strange…but it could very well be a case of one of those jumps of events that can take place when the MWI (many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics) doesn’t work out smoothly…
Around the Ranch: Crickets and Sandwiches
Went down to the airport to do my weekly “blowing the bugs out” and it was my first encounter with a new kind of spray bottle. Made by Raid, I think, it’s this do-all 12-month spider and insect killer. Not that you should care, but the jug of poison has a built-in battery-powered sprayer. All I had to do what flip a “safety” switch and then pull the trigger. Little sucker worked great – and you can get ‘em at Lowes… Must be a sizeable market in the aging, arthritic, and too lazy to pump the trigger on a spray bottle demographic.
Because of the high moisture levels, East Texas, which had a terrible drought last year has bounced back to normal this year and crickets are all over the place. Damn nuisance, but it may be why the cats aren’t eating as much – cats, especially in the wild (where ours came from) cats eat up to a thousand different varieties of bugs.
I can hardly wait for Whiskas to come out with an “assorted bug” flavor.
Panama Bates came by before heading out this morning and, if my custom, I gave him a kind of lazy salute. Nope, bad move. “You should be able to see your palm and your fingers should be just above the eyebrow. Now, SNAP that straight down so that your arm comes to rest in line with the crease of your trousers…there are no superflous moves done right…No, not like that. Tilt your hand back slightly so you can see the inside of your palm when you look up to the right….end of the eyebrow….;” Damn..one more thing to work on…but his point is t’ain’t no thing such as an informal salute. It either is or it isn’t.
Since we’re up to our elbows in projects and trying to get ready for a departure a week from Saturday, I got to reading up on the history of sandwiches last night. While there’s some evidence that they were really invented by John Montagu (4th Earl of Sandwich) seems in the literature there’s some debate about whether the Earl got hungry at the gaming tables at a gentleman’s club, or whether it was invented due to his long hours at work.
What somehow struck me as funny – a wryrony of history, if you will – is this little snip from Wikipedia:
And what’s so funny or wry about this? Well, to Ures truly, it’s mighty damn odd that Sandwiches have been sending away Cooks from the very beginning….
Have a great weekend…back Monday morning assuming the world is still here…

The Dandelion and the Bank Vault
Two recent investigations – into human replacing manufacturing and the future of state controls over how humans operate – have come into unexpected focus this week as a story about dandelions and bank vaults gives clarity into the path toward the future. Before we go there, however, a few headlines on what could be a momentous weekend of change for a couple of critical governments and of course, our weekly ChartPack.
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 $30 (During their Spring Sale) and one heck of a bargain at that, if I do say so.
A new version of Maxa is due shortly (V. 6.0) and we’ll advise in due court when it is due for release, upgrade paths, and all that-there kinda like stuff.
“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. . Click here for the index and details.
