Swim Log: 4-27-17

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 00:34:32 +0000

Still working on getting endurance back in other than breaststroke. Hard going, I tire quickly. 2300 yards.



Will the Liberal (anti-Trump) Bubble Ever Snap

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 00:27:29 +0000

So a liberal commenter posted a comment on my post observing that the liberal aggression against conservative speakers which began to get bad (and rumor has it they were being paid/backed in doing so) during the election. That commenter posited the theory that the alt-right is being paid to, well, go to conservative rallies as […]



How Not to Report News

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 23:12:34 +0000

Via Google Now Ms Wonkette (who is apparently a man named Evan Hurst) on a blog I don’t actually follow but … , “she” reports that Ms Ivanka Trump has started a “pay for play ‘Clinton Foundation’ for the ladies” (scare quotes not quoted text btw). Just a few problems with that assertion: there is no evidence […]



Swim Log 4-22-17 (race!) and the subsequent workouts

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 23:00:58 +0000

So Saturday I raced. The big twist was the course was meters (short course) not yards (the pool I train at is yards). I did a 44 in the 50, a 3:30 in the 200 and a DQ (bad start) on the 100. The 100 time was pretty bad as I was still shaking from […]



Corruption 101: Payment for Services Rendered

Disgusting. Here. Here too.



The City of Big Shoulders and Really Dumb Mayor

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 01:06:14 +0000

Maaaahr Rahm (da Rahmfather) said today “Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) is pushing more gun control for Federal Firearms License holders (FFLs) in the city.” (cite) How many FFL holders are the cause of the high level of gun violence in Chicago. Yah, about as much as the Concealed Carry holders I imagine, which is […]



Reliability and the New York Times

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 00:44:25 +0000

So, today the New York Times offered a small article reporting the New England Patriots visited the White House as has been customary for the Super Bowl winners. That was about the only factually correct part of the article. In it they reported that “only” 34 players showed up and that this was a small […]



Exploding Heads or Heads in Sand?

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 00:32:07 +0000

So, today it is announced that “threats of violence” have cause Berkeley to cancel Ms Coulter’s visit to campus. So the party that compares the President to Hitler copies tactics of same . They have for a year or more through the election and beyond been using SA-like tactics to shut down opposition speech. Either these […]



In the Past Week or So …

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 00:11:44 +0000

So, a 11 ton bomb was dropped. Apparently, as a result, some have decided “Mr Trump has no strategy”. How they know that, the press forgot to ask. Oh, wait. they didn’t ask because it’s clear those claiming “no strategy” were just making crap up. Remind my why grown men and women who call themselves reporters, […]



Pascha — Christ is Risen!

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 23:36:18 +0000

He is risen indeed! Or in a few more words (by St. John Chrysostom): If any man be devout and love God, let him enjoy this fair and radiant triumphal feast. If any man be a wise servant, let him rejoicing enter into the joy of his Lord. If any have labored long in fasting, […]



Blogging Will Be Light

Tue, 11 Apr 2017 23:08:54 +0000

Holy week and all. I try to make most of the Holy week services, I’ll miss Thursday morning liturgy … and that’s I think. Which means I’ll be going every night, Friday 3 services, Saturday morning and Saturday night’s Pascha service.



Swim Log 4-11-2017

Tue, 11 Apr 2017 23:07:15 +0000

Slight hiatus, missed logging a workout or so, and missed two days (yesterday T-storms, Sunday working, and Thursday last week, traveling). Today, starting “taper”, which for me means shorter workout, after warm-ups, less drills, less kicking and most swimming is at race pace (although not often for full race distances). Total yards: 1750



Props to Nissan (Champaign)

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 23:49:03 +0000

Public charger is public, available with courtesy and openness. Asked to charge my Volt (not a Nissan Leaf of course) and am charging now (Nissan dealership is across the street from my hotel). Will start tomorrow with a full charge. Thanks guys.



Which Is Worse?

Wed, 05 Apr 2017 01:19:05 +0000

Item 1. Judicial malpractice, some judge thinks Mr Trump can be “held liable” for incitement to violence. Not surprisingly the rhetoric cited is mild at best when compared to the former President and his cabinet. This post, same theme (bad judges) notes the “living Constitution crap-on-a-stick” and some likely consequences. Apparently as Mr Obama trampled […]



Swim Log: 4-4-17

Wed, 05 Apr 2017 01:00:11 +0000

Whooo. Two good workouts in a row. Today (after warmup/drills 1000 yards) did 4×50 on the 1:00 twice and 2×50 on the 1:00 twice as well. The first 4x50s all came in at :47. On the 2nd, the first one came in at :45 but the final 3 at :46/:47. Kicking was fast today, 6×100 […]
