"A Face in the Crowd"

For you young ones,THIS is a must-see movie (especially now that he's besmirching southerners)

It's an oldie (b&W), but it's one of a very few that should be seen every so often

another is of course, "1984" ( I prefer the book)

How we get no Kavanaugh vote.

U.S. Senate: Rules and Procedure
https://www.senate.gov/reference/reference_index.../Rules_and_Procedure_vrd.htm
Article I, section 5 of the Constitution requires that a quorum (51 senators) be present for the Senate to conduct business. Often, fewer than 51 senators are present on the floor, but the Senate presumes a quorum unless a roll call vote or quorum call suggests otherwise.

Quorum Requirements in the Senate: Committee and ... - Senate.gov
https://www.senate.gov/CRSpubs/afc83682-d9c8-4f34-a732-3f7a5883cca1.pdf
Jun 8, 2017 - The Senate usually requires that the request for a roll-call vote must be supported by at least one-fifth of the smallest possible quorum. Consequently, at least 11 Senators—one-fifth of the minimum quorum of 51 Senators—must raise their hands to support a request for a roll-call vote.


Is there any way Dems can work with this to prevent enough there to continue?

McCain is not there, so they are a man short already

Reasonable doubt

Mom baked a big ole chocolate cake, and set it on the table

She comes back into the kitchen and sees her 3 yr old with chocolate icing all over his hands & face.

She asks "WHO ATE ALL THE CAKE?"

The 9, 10 & 13 yr old show up and say.."Obviously ,he did" (pointing to the 3 yr old.)

He IS the only one with true "evidence" all over him

Reasonable doubt will tell her two important things:

1. the 3 yr old cannot reach the sink to wash up alone
2. the 3 yr old probably cannot eat a whole cake by himself.

Reasonable doubt is really just intuitive thinking about what's likely and what is not..

By weight, human beings are insignificant

https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2018/5/29/17386112/all-life-on-earth-chart-weight-plants-animals-pnas

By weight, human beings are insignificant.

If everyone on the planet were to step on one side of a giant balance scale, and all the bacteria on Earth were to be placed on the other side, we’d shoot violently upward. That’s because all the bacteria on Earth combined are about 1,166 times more massive than all the humans.

Comparisons to other categories of life similarly demonstrate how very, very small we are. As a sweeping recent study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences finds, in a census sorting all the life on Earth by weight (measured in gigatons of carbon, the signature element of life on Earth), we make up less than 1 percent of life.

There are an estimated 550 gigatons of carbon of life in the world. A gigaton is equal to a billion metric tons. A metric ton is 1,000 kilograms, or about 2,200 pounds.

We’re talking in huge, huge, mind-boggling terms here.
So, using the data in PNAS, we tried to visualize the weight of all life on Earth to get a sense of the scale of it all.

Wanna buy a windmill?

https://www.theguardian.com/money/gallery/2018/aug/11/wonderful-windmills-in-pictures

here's a beauty..



Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire
This Grade II-listed windmill, on just under half an acre, was extended in the 1960s-70s into a home but is now in need of renovation.

The kitchen/breakfast room, family bathroom and two bedrooms, both with beamed ceilings, are on the first floor with a sitting room on the second and another bedroom with views over the grounds at the top of the tower. Detached double garage. Offers around £925,000. Savills, 01923 725 500
