There are aging and arthritic tree sloths with quicker reflexes than the memory/processor/hard-drive combo in my MacMini!
In under a minute I will be starting the ugrade process for my MacMini, to move it into Yosemite Valley OSX. I am nearly completed with the backing up of what is going to get backed up. I am a bit nervous since my barely tolerable MacMini is crippled by whatever minimum RAM memory configuration it came loaded with. Curiously, I have not “user-servicable” upgraded it. It also has a mechanical hardrive that probably came out of the Apollo era. Live-bogging the upgrade after the jump.
It’s a rather tiny amount of ‘ordinary matter”‘ that actually consists of everything we’d normally associate with being “everything” there is in the universe. Point zero three percent to be exact. We know absolutely nothing about the ninety six percent of “something else” which dominates our universe yet leaves no trace.
Michio Kaku readily concedes that we don’t even have a full picture of the diminutive .03% speck of matter we can detect and examine. The knowledge we glean in the atomic world comes at a huge price and destroys the very type of matter we need to survive, the abundance of which is admitted to be in exceedingly short supply by the very people who want to go on annihilating as much of it as they can!!
It started out innocently enough. I just asked myself “I wonder who invented the modern potato chip” and here’s what happened next:
A Kettle Cooked Porn and Potato Chip History Lesson
It occurred to me that there’s almost nothing more popular in late 20th century Americana than porn and potato chips. In case you hadn’t heard, an independent study just confirmed that “porn and potato chips” are currently more than twice as popular as “mom and apple pie!“
