    The curse of Batman hits again. After Michael Keaton played Batman, there has been a curse on everyone after that. Val Kilmer’s career tanked, Clooney, and Christian Bale had many personal issues after playing Batman. Now, before the movie is even finished and out, Ben Afflecks life is going down the tubes. At least Batman can’t ruin his career, JLo already did that to him.

    But right after reading this, I feel the panic, so I pulled all my money out the the bank, bought 5 years worth of food, stocked up on ammo, and moved the entire family out to the mountains. As I type this, I am secured deep in a bunker, ready for the collapse of society as we know it, this was the last sign that the apocalypse was upon us, the firsts sign was New Coke.

    Well, lets all just sit down and take a look at this. Let’s just say, the Tories kept a big influence in the US and constantly wanted to raise the Union Jack, every 4th of july, and just wanted to run around town with it. Now, after the war of 1812, they still wanted to run around with the union jack. after about 100 years or so, what symbol of the union jack would the normal citizen see the symbol of the union jack, mostly a beaten loser. In most parts of the US, when we see the Confederate flag, the first thing that comes to mind, is, a beaten nation. So, what is the problem if people still want to run around and fly that flag? Does it really bring out animosity or pity?

    When I read the headline I thought this was the Canadian Flag wavers combating the French Flag wavers. The Canadians never like anyone waving around soiled tighty whiteys.

    True, this info is from when Space X was just starting development. As I said, Elon Musk could have changed design and approach. The colonel was talking about NASA engineers he hired, wanting to design thing to .05% chance of failure and putting several layers of redundancy. Musk would ask them, what is the chance of failing beyond the third level. When they would start with .0….% He would say, “Nope, good enough, I will accept the risk, let’s move on” Than’s why I think he has a good way ahead, and will make this work. Don’t over design, but design smartly.

    Don’t get me wrong, I am a Space X fan. I did get to sit through a brief from the Air Force Liason Col. that worked with space x as they were developing their system. One thing he said was Musk would dismiss anything that had less than a .1% of failure. That was the issue between his engineers and the NASA boys, they wanted triple redundancy on everything, and Musk said, if there is less than 1% chance of a failure down to that level, we aren’t wasting the time or money. That is why I think his model will be a success. Now the PhD I work with, said they were using auto parts on some of their systems, cheaper, already made, and proven. The issue he seen was tracking lot numbers in case of a failure. There again, Musk may have dumped that idea, but this is info I get from people that have worked with Space X from the Engineering point and overall direct oversight.

    I work with a PhD that knows Elon, and has worked with the DoD when they were studying whether or not to go with Space X. The issue is they do use off the shelf components for their engines, and that was the biggest knock on them. Other than that, I do think they will work this out, but two failures in a row doesn’t look good.

    You can shoot the other guests, but don’t ever try and skip out on a bill, they get touchy over that. Plus he didn’t leave a tip, that was plain rude.

  • [2] June 28, 2015 at 3:50pm

    Definitely not going well with Space X. Good concept, but they do use off the shelf parts, and with these accidents, can’t trace back to root cause, mainly because they can’t pinpoint a certain lot or manufacture run that had issues. The parts are random, and unlike NASA, they are trying to make a profit, so if there is less than a 1% chance of failure, they don’t engineer to that level, they accept the risk.

    When the lawyers, or as they know them, the spanish inquisition showed up, with the torture gear, he immediately started to apologize. After 5 hours of the special tool treatment, he finally found out what he was apologizing for. At that point, the lawyers put the paper and apology he needed to say before they were slapped with a big lawsuit. After his apology, they sent him to the reeducation camp/S&M weekend camp. He will not make the same mistake again, unless they specifically direct him to.

    We should replace him with liberal panel, from the Greg Gutfeld show., or maybe just bring in Kucinich, I would love to hear more about aliens and how liberal policies are actually working, you know me, I love science fiction and fantasy.

    Their heads are exploding, a gay black man and a white mormon christian had a decent conversation without name calling or yelling.

    Their narrative is falling apart, and they will have al sharpton come talk to Don, get him straight on the Dem plantation.

    My 2 cents on this:

    First, flying the confederate flag after all these decades, what symbol does it hold meaning to the folks in those states? Southern pride? Holding on to slavery? Racism? Or just historical?
    For way too many, it is a symbol of the fight to KEEP slavery, right or wrong, that is just how too many people see it. So is it right to keep flying it, or should the states put it on the ballot for this fall and vote to keep or remove it?

    This discussion of the flag in the aftermath of a horrible, senseless act of murder:
    This is like someone breaking into someone’s kitchen, grabbing a knife and killing them, and everyone start yelling, Ban all salt shakers, because the killer had a salt shaker on his kitchen table. Is the flag even relevant in this entire discussion of what happened, and why this monster did what he did?

    So, to me, this is like a butterfly or squirrel moment. HEY, LOOK, BUTTERFLY/SQUIRREL. Look over there while we push forward an agenda.

    CKNAPP:

    Thanks. My major influence of comedy is Cheech and Chong, George Carlin, Richard Prior, Monty Python, and every engineering type humor there is, so I look at everything with an analytical point of view, twisted, and whatever non PC image that pops in my head.

    It’s like the T-shirt I have, “Why I am going to hell. Intersection of humor I shouldn’t laugh at, humor I find funny, and the major intersection of them both.

    So to use Obama’s own twisted form of justifying his desire to a random action. Since he signed the bill to enact Obamacare, which has caused many people to lose the insurance they had and pay more out of pocket for less coverage. We should ban all ball point pens, or enact “Pen Control” There will be a 10 day waiting period, background check, Psych check, and no felons can ever own or operate a pen legally, starting with Congress and the entire Executive branch.

    There, problem solved Obama style, we just enact all kinds of control everytime there is a crisis.

    Just wait until you hear my plan on solving the sexual assault problem, lets just say, Bobbitt may have a lot of company.

    lying liars and their statistics will not be stopped.

    In other news, Obama is now reformulating the official male member measurement technique (Richard Nixon Circumference formula or RNC), he is renaming it the Digit Inversion Circumference Kakistocracy formula (D I C K), according to him, he is now the biggest Dick in DC.

    Whew, what a relief, now I guess I can go buy some new magazines for my AR-15. Oh, wait, I live in Colorado, they took that right away from me, nothing bigger than a fictional 15 round magazine. I can’t even buy a new magazine for my Glock, because it is an 18 round magazine.

    But no one is taking away my right, just circumventing it.

    I have asked anti-gun liberals this direct question. “How does disarming me, taking away my right to defend myself, make YOU safer against a criminal with intent to kill?”

    One friend I have has stated, it doesn’t make me safer, but it would make me feel better if no one was allowed to have a gun.

    So that is what it is about, making liberals “Feel Better”, not that it won’t make anyone safer, just as long as they feel better.

    Just remember folks, if a rapist or robber comes up to you, just urinate, throw up, and defecate, that will stop them, unless they have a fetish for that, in that case, you just performed foreplay, and the rest will be your fault.

    Gee Officer, is that your nightstick, or are you just happy to see me?

    Maybe he just got circumcised and is just showing it off.

    Could be an option he is giving them, this or a ticket….so far, he has met his quota every month for tickets.

    I know exactly how he feels, every since they came out with that Spider Man movie, people do the same thing to me, but I’m not saying I’m Spider Man, but you have never seen me and Spider Man in the same room together. Just Sayin.
