(Spock is stoking the boiler when Edith comes in to confront them.)

EDITH: That toolbox was locked with a combination lock and you opened it like a real pro. Why did you do it?

SPOCK: I needed the fine tools for my radio work. They'd have been returned in the morning.

EDITH: I'm sorry, I can't

KIRK: If Mister Spock says that he needs the tools and that they'll be returned tomorrow morning, you can bet your reputation on that, Miss Keeler.

EDITH: On one condition. Walk me home? I still have a few questions I'd like to ask about you two. Oh, and don't give me that questions about little old us? look. You know as well as I do how out of place you two are around here.

SPOCK: Interesting. Where would you estimate we belong, Miss Keeler?

EDITH: You? At his side, as if you've always been there and always will. And you? You belong in another place. I don't know where or how. I'll figure it out eventually.

SPOCK: I'll finish with the furnace.

EDITH: Captain. Even when he doesn't say it, he does.

Black World War Ii Airman To Receive Fourth Star At 85

By Sonya Ross


THE COMMANDER of the Tuskegee Airmen, who never lost a bomber, is being honored by President Clinton in a White House ceremony.

WASHINGTON - There are three stars on the heavily decorated Air Force uniform of Lt. Gen. Benjamin Davis Jr., commander of the famed Tuskegee Airmen who never lost a single bomber to enemy fire during 200 escort missions they performed during World War II.

Today, Davis was getting a fourth star 28 years after he retired and 100 years after his father - America's first black brigadier general

EDITH: Good evening.

(She steps up onto a small stage with a piano.)

MAN: You'll be sorry.

KIRK: Why?

MAN: You expect to eat for free or something? You got to listen to Goody Two-shoes.

EDITH: Now, as I'm sure somebody out there has said, it's time to pay for the soup.

MAN: Not that she's a bad-looking broad, but if she really wanted to help out a fella in need

KIRK: Shut up. Shut up. I want to hear what she has to say.

SPOCK: Yes, of course, Captain.

EDITH: Now, let's start by getting one thing straight. I'm not a do-gooder. If you're a bum, if you can't break off of the booze or whatever it is that makes you a bad risk, then get out. Now I don't pretend to tell you how to find happiness and love when every day is just a struggle to survive, but I do insist that you do survive because the days and the years ahead are worth living for. One day soon man is going to be able to harness incredible energies, maybe even the atom. Energies that could ultimately hurl us to other worlds in some sort of spaceship. And the men that reach out into space will be able to find ways to feed the hungry millions of the world and to cure their diseases. They will be able to find a way to give each man hope and a common future, and those are the days worth living for. Our deserts will bloom. (She continues under the dialogue.)

KIRK: Development of atomic power is years away, and space flight years after that.

SPOCK: Speculation. Gifted insight.

KIRK: I find her most uncommon, Mister Spock.

EDITH: Prepare for tomorrow. Get ready. Don't give up.


AP: Clinton’s State Department calendar omits meetings with donors, corporate leaders


The Associated Press undertook the thankless task of comparing Hillary Clinton’s calendar, an official record of her time as Secretary of State, with her planning schedules. It took the AP more than two years to get the State Department to turn over all the materials in question. They first requested them back in August 2013. Last March, the AP sued and the department finally agreed to turn over the documents.

What the AP found was “scores” of instances where Clinton’s meetings with political cronies and former campaign bundlers were left out of her calendar

EDITH: There's a vacant room at the place where I live for two dollars a week. If you want to I'll take you there.

That happened to me personally a few months ago, with, I am going to publish, more detail on Flickr.

So if I personally created all that as a joke then what's the point?

Why, decades later would others still be carrying the joke?

There is no joke.

There are still people who see me as someone they knew.

If I was a natural human then I might find the appeal of what they think I can teach them about extended life.

Apollo 8

Oh, yeah, and that sleeping dream I had recently.

Whenever was the last time I was asleep.

Wasn't that long ago.

I mean, I don't go for days without sleep.

Sometimes I might go for just about 24 hours without sleep.

I'm currently testing a solar-powered lamp and that solar-powered lamp had remained illuminated now without recharging for about 34 hours so I know I've slept since then.

I'll probably write about that lamp sometime later because it's so cool and I've been interested in solar power since a kid.


Anyway, what? I forgot what else I was going to write here. I just wanted to make a note about Apollo 8 because I had started it a few hours ago.

Oh, yeah, The sleeping dream. Now I can't remember.

You know, this reminds me of recently going back through my blog and gaining a renewed sense of just how pointless it is. I mean, I recall the hours I spend sitting at my desk, that once was a hell of a lot more comfortable than this really painful setup I have now, because I live in a very frustrating environment, and I think about just how pointless is all this work.

Oh, right. I rarely proofread my posts until after the initial post and now I remember. The "cone". That was part of a sleeping dream recently. I was thinking about how I just did not really give a good goddamn about going into detail about it here. There was some kind of force that left an imprint that was destructive and to make a long story short because I don't goddamn care about explaining it to you I thought extensively about how the intricate patterns I was seeing in that sleeping dream could be considered a recurring theme to my sleeping dreams. My recent Fire Tablet tinkling makes me wonder more.

Apollo 8

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Apollo 8, the second human spaceflight mission in the United States Apollo space program, was launched on December 21, 1968, and became the first manned spacecraft to leave Earth orbit, reach the Earth's Moon, orbit it and return safely to Earth. The three-astronaut crew — Commander Frank Borman, Command Module Pilot James Lovell, and Lunar Module Pilot William Anders — became the first humans to travel beyond low Earth orbit, the first to see Earth as a whole planet, the first to directly see the far side of the Moon, and then the first to witness Earthrise.

Lunar trajectory

Jim Lovell's main job as Command Module Pilot was as navigator. Although Mission Control performed all the actual navigation calculations, it was necessary to have a crew member serving as navigator so that the crew could successfully return to Earth in case of communication loss with Mission Control. Lovell navigated by star sightings using a sextant built into the spacecraft, measuring the angle between a star and the Earth's (or the Moon's) horizon. This task proved to be difficult, as a large cloud of debris around the spacecraft formed by the venting S-IVB made it hard to distinguish the stars.

By seven hours into the mission, the crew was about one hour and 40 minutes behind flight plan due to the issues of moving away from the S-IVB and Lovell's obscured star sightings. The crew now placed the spacecraft into Passive Thermal Control (PTC), also known as "barbecue" roll. PTC involved the spacecraft rotating about once per hour along its long axis to ensure even heat distribution across the surface of the spacecraft. In direct sunlight, the spacecraft could be heated to over 200 °C (392 °F) while the parts in shadow would be -100 °C (-148 °F). These temperatures could cause the heat shield to crack or propellant lines to burst. As it was impossible to get a perfect roll, the spacecraft actually swept out a cone as it rotated. The crew had to make minor adjustments every half-hour as the cone pattern got larger and larger.


Borman finished the broadcast by wishing a Merry Christmas to everyone on Earth. His message appeared to sum up the feelings that all three crewmen had from their vantage point in lunar orbit. Borman said, "And from the crew of Apollo 8, we close with good night, good luck, a Merry Christmas and God bless all of you—all of you on the good Earth."

The only task left for the crew at this point was to perform the Trans-Earth Injection (TEI), which was scheduled for 2½ hours after the end of the television transmission. The TEI was the most critical burn of the flight, as any failure of the SPS to ignite would strand the crew in lunar orbit, with little hope of escape. As with the previous burn, the crew had to perform the maneuver above the far side of the Moon, out of contact with Earth.

The burn occurred exactly on time. The spacecraft telemetry was reacquired as it re-emerged from behind the Moon at 89 hours, 28 minutes, and 39 seconds, the exact time calculated. When voice contact was regained, Lovell announced, "Please be informed, there is a Santa Claus", to which Ken Mattingly, the current CAPCOM, replied, "That's affirmative, you are the best ones to know." The spacecraft began its journey back to Earth on December 25, Christmas Day.

Kent: And with the prime suspect cleared and found completely innocent, we must now ask ourselves: who could possibly be as bloodthirsty as Waylon Smithers?

Marge: I guess it's never the most likely suspect.

Lisa: Actually, Mom, in 95% of cases, it is. The rest of the time, it's usually some deranged lunatic who did it for no reason.

Homer: Hey! I had a damn good reason. He could never remember my name.

Burns: Who the devil are you?

Homer: [loses it, rushes Burns] Homer Simpson!

Burns: You're just babbling incoherently.

Homer: My name is Homer Simpson...

Lisa: Well I don't think anyone in this family is capable of attempted murder.

Abe: never know what you're capable of. I never thought I could shoot down a German plane, but last year I proved myself wrong.

Yep, they're really talking to me out there. All those different people. Someone telling all those different people what to say around me. And there's never anything obvious at the time. On television. On the sidewalk in the dark, everywhere.

And then, several hours later while composing this non-contiguous note, the simple explanation screams in my mind and as something I have stated here before.

You need *me* to know.

Doesn't matter what the rest of you dullards out there think.

All that matters is what I think.

The notion keeps lingering in my mind I returned to Earth in May 1974.

The notion also continues to linger in my mind that I left my inter-solar spaceship on the surface of Earth's moon in 1974 and then I rendevoused with it in November 1975.

I started thinking of that dialog in the recent new "Caprica" episode where the Director tells the agents they are "half-way back" by the initiative they took to call the "Caprica Tribune."

The dialog could be a generic reference to the midpoint device I use or it could be a reference to this item. The date 3/23/2008 is at the midpoint of 5/9/2006 and the 2/5/2010 premiere date of the episode.

I wanted to write about the dream earlier today more than once but then I felt compelled to not write about it.

There was a third person in the room and I think he was a coworker but I am left with only a vague sense of another person being there before he left. I was talking to him about the equipment around us and I pointed out the model number of a check sorting machine that was reduced to little more than its chassis and now I cannot remember the numbers I spoke but Eric Stoltz corrected me and I think I called it an S290 and he corrected me that it was an S790. I don't remember any of those model numbers from reality and I don't think either one represent the small check sorter machine I was thinking, that was about the size of a small desk. At another point I was examining a printed circuit boards from one of the machines and I could clearly visualize it in the dream and I was describing my observations about the board and I remember there was no real circuitry to it and there was a lot of printed circuit etching but there was only a few large metal transistor packages on the surface and I was commenting that I thought it was some of pass-through circuit board and at some point either in the dream or possibly shortly after waking up I was thinking it might have been a signal converter board but who knows. I was describing to the other person how there was a cable connector on the top and then on the end and there was the connector at the bottom where it plugged into the machine. I remember looking at a clock on the wall and thinking it was late into the day and that I was going to leave for the day. Eric Stoltz was still there working and he told me I didn't have to wear the same clothes I had on, which was a tie and shirt and slacks as I used to wear in that job and without a suit jacket and I didn't have to wear a tie because the next day was my indoctrination in some kind of classroom, I guess, and I don't remember all the details now but it seems I had just started that job. The details are vague now about the next day and there is a lot I don't know remember but it seems that Eric Stoltz was driving me around the next day and I cannot remember now where we were going but I was commenting about how I should remember the scenery I was seeing because I used to drive along that highway all the time through the course of work of Kerry Burgess as he made his service calls to the banks. I was commenting about how I did not recognize any of what I was seeing although I knew I should remember it even though I had not seen it in a long time. There was something about that part of the dream where I was aware that I was trying to assume the life of Kerry Burgess and there are two aspects to that. At some point I vaguely remember explaining to someone, probably Eric Stoltz, that if I was going to pass off as Kerry Burgess then I needed to understand those machines he worked on. The other aspect, which I feel the main point has now slipped my mind in the past minute, is that I had

According to AstroViewer Online 3.1.6

On 29 September 2011 the stars Castor and Pollux, forming Gemini, or The Twins, both rose above the horizon of the Seattle night sky just after midnight.

Both stars would have become visible in the night sky just after midnight on 29 September 2011.

03/28/2013 01:16 AM
The Queen constellation, which is what AstroViewer labels Cassiopeia, is always visible in the night sky in Seattle. The Queen nebula is just about opposite in the sky from the Big Dipper and I think that is the "old woman" I saw in that dream that morning. which is something I thought of only this morning.

In the sleeping dream that morning she said to me "At least we can go somewhere we can spit."

03/28/2013 01:29 AM
As best I can tell September 29th is the only day of the year when Castor and Pollux have just become visible right at midnight. As the days progress after September 29th Castor and Pollux are higher in the sky at the point of midnight.

03/28/2013 01:52 AM
On 24 March 2013 the first star for the Eridanus constellation, The River, did not rise into the sky in Seattle until almost 11 AM, during the daytime.

03/28/2013 01:54 AM
The River rises in the sky just before Orion rises.

AstroViewer labels Orion as Hunter.

03/28/2013 02:03 AM
The Andromeda Galaxy is going to rise above the horizon of the Seattle sky again about 02:28 AM. Andromeda ducked under the horizon about 12:28 AM this morning.

03/28/2013 02:12 AM
As best I can tell the first star in the Pegasus constellation to rise above the horizon the Seattle sky is 2 Pegasi.

That star is just about to rise in the sky this morning. Looks to be at 02:23 AM when it starts to rise above the horizon.

AstroViewer sometimes has that first star listed as Jih, which Wikipedia names as Kappa Pegasi. Kappa Pegasi is a triple star so maybe 2 Pegasi is part of it. I don't know.

03/28/2013 02:18 AM
Ah, now I see.

2 Pegasi is a star by itself. Jih is the first star of Pegasus that rises into the sky.

The star Antares rose above the horizon today at 01:25 AM. According to Wikipedia Antares is the "heart of the scorpion," the Scorpius constellation, which is something I don't think I was ever aware of until now.

Andromeda is the "chained princess." I didn't know that until today.

Springfield! Springfield!



It's quite a place you got here.

I still miss tinkering down in my parents' basement, you know? This all seems a bit much. Ever tried one of these?

Uh I'm not much for that stuff.

Indulge me, please.


Just step right in here, if you would. Right there. This is what happens when you buy a holoband at any retail store.

I saw it on the news.

Basically, I'm going to scan your image for your avatar, which is, in essence, a virtual copy of you, physically. Now, just stand still.


You're gonna feel a slight tingling sensation in your skin, but I assure you, it's not harmful. You can step out now. There you are.

I've looked better.

If you will just sit here, we are ready to go. Now, just relax, close your eyes. Remember, it's going to seem real, very real, but it's all virtual. Just an illusion.


It takes getting used to.

Can I talk? I guess I can. Where are we?

Inside a very basic computer program. I haven't had time to do any decorating yet. Step over here. Just tell yourself to walk.

What are you doing, daddy?


Joseph, this is Zoe, my daughter.

My gods.


Frak! What the hell is this? What kind of sick, twisted thing are you doing here?

There's nothing twisted about it. And I didn't do it. Zoe did.

Zoe did?

Turns out she was kind of a chip off the old block.

That's not her. Our daughters, they're gone.


You know this.

Yes, but what if they could come back?

You're insane.

Do you know what your brain is, Joseph? It's a database and a processor, that's all. Information and a way to use it. And what my daughter figured out was Was how to harness all the information that made her who and what she was. It's genius, really. She took a search engine and turned it into a way to cheat death.

No, it's it's an illusion. You said so yourself.

Springfield! Springfield!



Let's be clear. I don't like your boss, I don't like your planet and I don't like your people, so you crawl under that rock where your Guatrau lives, and you tell him that not only will I not be pressured or blackmailed, but the government of Caprica is going to take a very special interest in him, his business and his low-life lawyers.

Perhaps you should sleep on it.

Deliver the message, errand boy, word for word.

Goodbye, Minister Chambers. Have a safe journey.

I'm not going anyplace, you frakking dirt-eater.

Apollo 8 Genesis reading

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"We are now approaching lunar sunrise, and for all the people back on Earth, the crew of Apollo 8 has a message that we would like to send to you."



Springfield! Springfield!



Program completed by your command.

Dr. Graystone, you've not only secured a long-term contract but you've done a great service to our planet.

Thank you, minister.

The Vergis Corporation have made certain accusations.

If they really thought they had a case, they'd have us in court by now.

Yes. But no matter. It was never our intention to take this contract off-world, anyway. It's been my experience you can never trust a Tauron. Deceit is in their DNA. What'd you call it?

Cybernetic life-form node. A cylon, minister.

Hmm. Cylon. Interesting.

Actually, I understand now what is reason that explains that I am the original and not the clone. I have pondered over several possibilities but I just remembered again one explanation that makes perfect sense.

I have also been thinking that some time back I passed the point where I could fully regain to conscious awareness all my true memory with no difficulty. There is still something that has to happen though before I can turn on the light switch to all those memories though but I do not consciously know what is that condition.

I miss my wife very much. I love my wife very much.

They've asked for a full status report on all FTL capable ships, just in case they need someone to jump out there today, see if his ship is having any mechanical problems.

Where shall we go? What shall we do? Life here began out there. Those are the first words of the sacred scrolls, and they were told to us by the Lords of Kobol, many countless centuries ago. And they made it perfectly clear that we are not alone in this universe. Elosha, there's a thirteenth colony of humankind, is there not?

Elosha: Yes. The scrolls tell us a thirteenth tribe left Kobol in the early days. They travelled far and made their home upon a planet called Earth, which circled a distant and unknown star.

Adama: It's not unknown. I know where it is! Earth. The most guarded secret we have. The location was only known by the senior commanders of the fleet, and we dare not share it with the public. Not while there was a Cylon threat upon us. For now we have a refuge to go to. A refuge the Cylons know nothing about.

How's that possible? Human beings naturally evolved on a planet one million light years away.
The odds against that are- Astronomical, yeah.
One might even say there was a divine hand at work.
Well, whoever's responsible, we're here.
And here's where we're gonna stay With our new families.
My vote is that we clear everything back to this ridge.
Easy access to the water down by the river.
In fact, the whole area's ripe for cultivation.
We should be able to lay out the preliminary lines for a city within a day or two.
No city.
Not this time.
What do you propose we do? We break the cycle.
We leave it all behind and start over.
You're talking about a little over 38,000 people- The entire human race- with nothing but the clothes on their backs and some provisions.
It's not the entire human race.
There are people already here.
Without language even.
But we can give them that.
I mean, we can give them the- The best part of ourselves.
But not the baggage.
Not the ships, the equipment, the technology, the weapons.
If there's one thing that we should've learned, it's that, you know, our brains have always outraced our hearts.
Our science charges ahead.
Our souls lag behind.
Let's start anew.
We'll land civilians at various points around the planet.
Our objective will be to spread the people out as much as possible to give them the best Possibility of survival.
Supplies will be evenly distributed Throughout the camps.
And locations will be documented and given to everyone.
I have to say, I'm shocked at how amenable everyone is to this notion.
I would have thought there'd be general uprising at the idea of losing whatever little creature comforts we had left.
Don't underestimate the desire for a clean slate, Mr.
Have you made a decision? The Sixes, the Eights, And the Twos have decided to stay.
See how we can contribute to the world before we pass into God's hands.
We'll give the baseship to the Centurions, let them find their own destiny.
I think they've earned their freedom.
And what if they evolve again on their own and decide to come back in a few hundred years and wipe us out? It's a risk.
But I think setting them free may be enough to break the cycle of violence.
And it's a risk worth taking.
And I agree.
They've earned it.
