Despite the shutdown, BLM is meeting to issue new permits for drilling in Alaska.

If the shutdown lasts, who thinks that BLM would issue BM a permit?

Bless, this is the second time I've seen you post this idea. Try to get it out of your head. Nevada would lose too much money if it was cancelled. There are a lot of politicians and individuals pulling for it to happen. It will come off the same as always.

This should be good.

Let's see how the PnPs handle interactivity.

"•This year the WhatWhereWhen printed guide will include a short, 100-character interactivity description for every placed and publicly listed Theme Camp and Village. Your camp’s name and official address will be included. This will serve as a neighborhood guide for interactivity. We hope this will reduce the issue of camps experiencing large differences in foot traffic if their events did or did not make it into the printed WhatWhereWhen guide."

The State Department on Monday said it would not be distributing a transcript or list of attendees from a briefing call with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held that evening -- a call from which the department's press corps was excluded and only "faith-based media" allowed..

According to London's Telegraph, some schools in the U.K. are ditching analog clocks for digital ones because students are struggling to read them.

"The current generation aren’t as good at reading the traditional clock face as older generations," said Malcolm Trobe, deputy general secretary at the Association of School and College Leaders.

As anyone who's ever had to give directions in BRC knows, plenty of adults have trouble finding their way around the face of a clock also.

Shame. A clock face can be "read" at a glance. A digital clock has to be read and involves language processing, more time, more stress (if minimal).

Hmmm
Perhaps I can build an app for snowflakes at BRC. Shows the BRC layout "clock face" aligned to North. After two days within BRC, every hour give the random number generator a spin and re-align. With the motion sensors, if they do anything resembling the correct dance, or is tilted at The Man in homage four times, it realigns to North for the rest of that hour. Shaking it in frustration is not the correct dance. If they do The Man quad-tilt within a half hour of sunrise, or at the sunrise, aliment is good until Solar Noon, when it will require a refresh. Might be fun to add five seconds of correct alignment if it detects getting "hit".

At least we have so few streets we don't have a problem with trying to translate 24 hour time to a 12 hour clock (2300=11 PM)

From the latest placement news.....

"In Camps Living the 10 Principles: “Theme camps allocate their collective focus, time, and resources primarily toward their public contributions rather than personal comfort and convenience. Conveniences are used in service of the camp’s contribution, which adds to the vibrancy of the city. We understand that commodifying resources (packaging, advertising, or marketing camp space, tickets, an experience, etc.) and allowing financial contributions to substitute for participation is not only in opposition to Burning Man’s values, but significantly damages the culture.”

Here's hoping!!!

I just found out that when Lenny Bruce was busted in a New York club for obscenity, George Carlin went up to a cop and said he was in the club and underage (15 at the time) so that he could ride and get locked up with Lenny.

There is a tape of Lenny on a drug ramble with some friends where he mentions the incident, but could'nt remember Georges name. 8)
