Homestead Day 1338

Cool. I didn't know (or had forgotten) that Google Maps archives the Streetview images. I started off trying to find it with Wayback Machine, which didn't work the first try, and then I noted that Google Maps has the archive feature.

I'm thinking about it because of a sleeping dream I had earlier today.

There was a massive amount of imagery I saw in so many moderately vivid sleeping dreams I had earlier today.

I just cannot believe my mind is capable of generating the complex images and the complex notions I saw while sleeping. I know I've never seen before that sort. I cannot even begin to adequately articulate the images I saw.

This post is because of one scene among a vast number of different scenes I saw and this one scene is still vivid enough in my mind now sitting at my desk to describe in vague detail.

I started looking at Google Maps because I think I was seeing that house from the inside. I have posted before an image I captured of it before Google Maps updated to the current imagery. I wanted to find more images of what I used to look at. I started looking at this street back in the year 2013 when I decided to move here. The Homestead Apartments Phase 1 was already constructed but the Google Streetview images were not updated for a long time.

Much of the sleeping dream has faded from my mind now. I remember waking a few times and thinking while awake about those details because I was lying there in bed and trying to compose a note to write about it. The only part I recall now is that I thought while awake that I was inside that old house. Somebody still lived there and I vaguely recall that I might have been trespassing and I might have felt concerned about that. But that is vague now. Maybe that's a projection of the guilt a telepathic mind feels. So anyway I was looking at the stuff in that house. Other people were with me. But they were aliens. Extraterrestrials. Vividly I saw them and they seemed to all be different species of intelligent beings. Then the reason we were in the house. We discovered something was buried underneath. About three levels down below the surface of the ground. That was an important detail: three levels down below the surface. And that was some kind of structure. Sort of similar to the level of a building. An entire floor of some building was three levels down below that house. And then it moved upwards. Now it was directly below underground of that house. All the piping and everything necessary of that house in its foundation was now somehow magically redirected. So the structure underground moved up just below the surface and it did not negatively impact the foundation of that house.

The first image is from the Google Streetview archive. The second image is a current view.

Senna Prevails at Monaco, His 4th Straight Title

May 13, 1991 From Staff and Wire Reports

Ayrton Senna cruised to a record fourth consecutive Formula One victory in winning the Monaco Grand Prix Sunday at Monte Carlo.

The real race was for second, won by Nigel Mansell of Britain, who took over the position with a daring move to overtake Alain Prost coming out of the tunnel shortly before the chicane on the 63rd lap.

The Mall

Watching in recent hours this evening the DVD for the 1994 television miniseries Stephen King's "The Stand," as I didn't make it all the way through the first DVD of the two-disc set, I have watched some scenes this evening that remind me of a dream I had in recent weeks. I don't recall the precise day I had that dream but it wasn't long ago and I have thought about it several times since then and I can still visualize certain scenes in it and I have kept thinking to myself that the dream was important and that the details I saw in that dream were important and somehow relevant to the real world. So I am watching tonight the scenes at their campsite next to the streams and that reminded me of that dream in certain regards and then I saw "Mother Abagail" laughing with delight as she ran a remote-controlled lawn mower across her yard in Boulder Colorado and that reminded me of my dream and so finally I decided to stop and make this note at the point where "Mother Abagail" is praying to God right around the time the power station is being brought back online and unless I am too much mistaken, having paused the DVD at this point, where she takes off into the night and everyone begins searching for her.

What that part makes me think about is how in that dream, I am thinking about as I write these paragraphs, for the first time I can ever recall I actually had a vivid dream where I was talking in person to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the person I was talking to, I was very certain in the dream, was literally Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

I can still remember that I had brought to her a couple of items and I was feeling apologetic because I had not included those items, and this part has always been vague, in some kind of report. But what is not vague is that I saw a brief smile from her, which I thought of because I might have been feeling apologetic perhaps for overlooking something earlier, which was the reason I was talking to her again and with those two items in hands, one of which was a pair of wire cutters and the other was a non-conductive tool that I remember from using to adjust certain variable electronic components as potentiometers and similar items that are soldered to printed circuit boards, and so apparently those two items were part of a collection that was being put together and I came back to her and told her we needed to add those items to the collection. Reinforcing the notion that we were all moving somewhere, which is vague now in sequence because I cannot recall which happened first, is the scene with the lawn mower. But I wasn't using a lawn mower but I was using a device for trimming grass. I think the actual product name is Weed Eater. Similar to 'Jet Ski' I think that product name has become synonymous with products that fulfill a similar purpose. So anyway, at some point in the dream and the sequence of events in the dream is now lost in my mind, or maybe not, I had arrived at a place where two streams converged and that place seemed to be a destination. There might have been people there already but I keep wanting to say that I was part of a group that was moving to that location and that was someplace uninhabited. I saw the streams converging and one stream was smaller and it looked kind of polluted. I was left with the sense that it was not really an ideal place to go to. I did see some signs of civilization there such as next to the stream was paved roads and I could see the metal shoulder barriers of the road. There was high weeds on the banks of the streams and I was using a weed trimmer to cut it down but I stopped perhaps half way through. Other people were around but that is vague. A scene that seems important and that I have thought about several times is that at some point I was on top of a boat that had a white cover over it and I think the boat was on a trailer and I could see myself as I adjusted cargo straps that stretched over the white cover of that boat and somewhere below a woman was looking up at me as I was on top of the boat and she was speaking to me and I cannot recall now, if I ever did, what she said but I do recall that I asked her why she was telling me any of the information she was telling me and I think I responded to her that she needed to tell the police what she was saying. I don't recall anything else about that dream, although there are some other details that don't seem important to note here.

I do not recall now precisely when I had that dream but I think that was right around the time I was having those dreams during that period when I wrote about that dream where I was standing at the ATM at the Southcenter Mall and the police car drove up and I thought the reason it was there was so I could here the message being broadcast over the police radio circuits.

Wait a minute. I had that wrong yesterday.

Something I just heard on the radio a few minutes ago reminded me that I had seen Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in a dream before and her appearance was her literal self as I understood in the dream. I was sitting on a sofa and I was in a place I don't recognize and I can still visualize and she served me a refreshment and I have thought about that many times but now I forget what I was thinking about specifically as she stood there. Naturally I would say "Thank you" but I don't think I did say that. She never did speak in the dream and after she handed me the cup she went back to her desk which was behind me and the sofa and she continued working on some documents. I heard some dialog from another man and woman just after that but I am not really certain if they were in the same room we were in although I could visualize them to a certain extent. I thought about this after I heard something on the radio just a few minutes ago and I do not record here certain specific details about that dream.

- William S. Burroughs, Naked Lunch

Naked Lunch

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Naked Lunch (sometimes The Naked Lunch) is a novel by American writer William S. Burroughs, originally published in 1959. The book is structured as a series of loosely connected vignettes. Burroughs stated that the chapters are intended to be read in any order. The reader follows the narration of junkie William Lee, who takes on various aliases, from the US to Mexico, eventually to Tangier and the dreamlike Interzone.

The vignettes (which Burroughs called "routines") are drawn from Burroughs' own experience in these places, and his addiction to drugs (heroin, morphine, and while in Tangier, majoun [a strong hashish confection] as well as a German opioid, brand name Eukodol, of which he wrote frequently).

Title origin

The book was originally published with the title The Naked Lunch in Paris in July 1959 by Olympia Press. Because of US obscenity laws, a complete American edition (by Grove Press) did not follow until 1962. It was titled Naked Lunch and was substantially different from the Olympia Press edition, because it was based on an earlier 1958 manuscript in Allen Ginsberg's possession. The article "the" in the title was never intended by the author, but added by the editors of the Olympia Press 1959 edition. Nonetheless The Naked Lunch remained the title used for the 1968 and 1974 Corgi Books editions, and the novel is often known by the alternative name, especially in the UK where these editions circulated.

Burroughs states in his introduction that Jack Kerouac suggested the title. "The title means exactly what the words say: naked lunch, a frozen moment when everyone sees what is on the end of every fork."

Plot summary

Naked Lunch is a non-linear narrative without a clear plot. The following is a summary of some of the events in the book that could be considered the most relevant.

The book begins with the adventures of William Lee (also known as "Lee the Agent"), who is Burroughs' alter ego in the novel. His journey starts in the US where he is fleeing the police, in search of his next fix. There are short chapters here describing the different characters he travels with and meets along the way.

Eventually he gets to Mexico where he is assigned to Dr. Benway; for what, he is not told. Benway appears and he tells about his previous doings in Annexia as a "Total Demoralizator". The story then moves to a state called Freeland—a form of limbo—where we learn of Islam Inc. Here, some new characters are introduced, such as Clem, Carl, and Joselito.

A short section then jumps in space and time to a marketplace. The Black Meat is sold here and compared to "junk", i.e. heroin. The action then moves back to the hospital where Benway is fully revealed as a cruel, manipulative sadist.

Time and space again shift the narrative to a location known as Interzone. Hassan, one of the notable characters of the book and "a notorious liquefactionist", is throwing a violent orgy. AJ crashes the party and wreaks havoc, decapitating people and imitating a pirate. Hassan is enraged and tells AJ never to return, calling him a "factualist bitch" - a term which is enlarged much later when the apparently "clashing" political factions within Interzone are described. These include the Liquefactionists, the Senders, the Factualists, and the Divisionists (who occupy "a midway position"). A short descriptive section tells us of Interzone University, where a professor and his students are ridiculed; the book moves on to an orgy that AJ himself throws.

The book then shifts back to the market place and a description of the totalitarian government of Annexia. Characters including the County Clerk, Benway, Dr Berger, Clem and Jody are sketched through heavy dialogue and their own sub-stories.

After the description of the four parties of Interzone, we are then told more stories about AJ. After briefly describing Interzone, the novel breaks down into sub-stories and heavily cut-up influenced passages.

In a sudden return to what seems to be Lee's reality, two police officers, Hauser and O'Brien, catch up with Lee, who kills both of them. Lee then goes out to a street phone booth and calls the Narcotics Squad, saying he wants to speak to O'Brien. A Lieutenant Gonzales on the other end of the line claims there's no one in their records called O'Brien. When Lee asks for Hauser instead, the reply is identical; Lee hangs up, and goes on the run once again. The book then becomes increasingly disjointed and impressionistic, and finally simply stops.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Latah, from Southeast Asia, is a condition in which abnormal behaviors result from a person experiencing a sudden shock. When surprised, the affected person typically engages in such behaviors as screaming, cursing, dancing type movements, and uncontrollable laughter, and will typically mimic the words or actions of those around them. Physical symptoms include an increased heart rate and profuse sweating, but no clear physiological source has been identified.

Latah is considered a culture-specific startle disorder that was historically regarded as personal difference rather than an illness. Similar conditions have been recorded within other cultures and locations. For example, there are the so-called Jumping Frenchmen of Maine, the women of the Ainu people of Japan (imu),[clarification needed] the Siberian (miryachit), and the Filipino[clarification needed] and Thai[clarification needed] peoples; however, the connection among these syndromes[clarification needed] is controversial.

Earliest record

The earliest mention of Latah is by J. R. Logan’s journal from 1849 when he travelled from Melaka to Naning. Though this is only a possible reference, by the 1860s, Latah had been clearly identified in Malay and Java. Seen first as merely a “cerebral affection”, little was understood about Latah during this time. O’Brien’s notes from the early to mid 1880’s are the first gathering of information on Latah we have recorded. He observed that Latah was more common in women than men, and more likely to occur in more mature, rather than younger, women. From many of the original accounts of European travelers, Latah does not seem to have changed much in either affected demographic population nor in symptoms.

The British colonial administrator Frank Swettenham wrote about Latah in his volume of essays Malay Sketches (1895). Swettenham describes how two policemen from Ambon Island stationed in Selangor in 1874 who were affected with the condition were made the victims of pranks by their colleagues.

In the DSM

Latah was included in the DSM IV under the "Dissociative Disorder: Not Otherwise Specified" section as a culture bound syndrome. The DSM IV describes Latah as a Hypersensitivity to sudden fright, often with echopraxia, echolalia, command obedience, and dissociative or trancelike behavior. It mentions other cultures where Latah is found, but the only further information the DSM IV gives us is that in Malaysia, it is more often found in middle aged women. It has been removed from the DSM 5, and rather than the DSM 5 expanding upon the DSM IV’s list of culture bound syndromes, it has instead provided cross-lists for more commonly known disorders that a culture bound syndrome might be classified as. The DSM 5 has taken out the ‘culture bound syndrome’ language and replaced it with more ‘sensitive’ language, and the glossary where the now shortened list of previously recognized culture bound syndromes is titled “Other Specified” and “Unspecified” Dissociative Disorders. A more general discussion, involving the formation of a cultural identity, explanation, and assessment, has been added.

In popular culture

William S. Burroughs mentions Latah several times in his 1959 novel Naked Lunch, "a parody of modern mass man under modern conditioning programmes of advertising and public[ly] induced morality", according to Eric Mottram. Burroughs described Latah as involving echopraxia, as well as being forcibly induced rather than spontaneously occurring.

During an episode

Latah can affect people differently; someone can have a very strong reaction or a slight reaction during a latah episode. Every instance of latah has been acquired over time. Those who are affected, which by an overwhelming amount, are middle-to-older-aged women, are not born latah. It typically occurs around the time of menopause. There is a lack of latah in the higher social statra of Malay and Java, which suggests they are more likely to suppress their responses than those who belong to lower social classes. A latah episode occurs after a startle of some sort (poking, shouting, something falling). During an episode, a latah person will begin to shout obscenities, imitate words or gestures of those around them or even those on TV, and will often obey any commands given to them – no matter how outrageous or against cultural norms they are. Persons with latah make movements reminiscent of behaviors normally peculiar to certain childhood developmental stages.[citation needed] The person is unlikely to remember anything occurring during the episode.

Possible causes

The onset of Latah is often associated with stress. In a study done by Tanner and Chamberland in 2001, a significant number of research participants had experienced a life stressor (such as a child or husband dying) just before becoming latah. Additionally, a large amount of participants from many research studies have reported strange dreams occurring just before the onset of latah. These dreams usually had a sexual element to them, often involving penises or enlarged penises. According to Tanner and Chamberland, perhaps the dreams, although with variation, indicate some sort of dysfunction in a specific anatomical area. Exploring this further might lead to more insights as to the cause and/or cure of latah. Osborne (2001) states that latah is a possible emotional outlet in a stifling culture. Winzeler’s believes that latah is less demeaning for women than it is for men, and that women actually have more freedom in society because they are not held to as strict of standards as men are. He argues that as men age, they become more concerned with personal dignity and poise while women become less so. Because of this, women feel more freedom to engage in latah behavior, while men do not.

Malay response

When the Malays were asked why they thought that women were more likely to suffer from latah, they responded with the cultural explanation that women have less 'semangat' or soul substance. They also said women are simply easier to tease than men, and coupling these two together: latah becomes more readily observable and developed throughout recurrent provocation in women than in men. This also accounts for the higher prevalence of latah in lower status persons, as they are more vulnerable to abuse than others. The Malay also believe women are more susceptible because they lose more blood than men, through menstruation. Some Malay believe that excess tickling of a child will predispose them to latah later in life.

Latah Creek

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Latah Creek, also known as Hangman Creek, is a large stream in eastern Washington and north central Idaho in the United States. The creek flows northwest from the Rocky Mountains to Spokane, where it empties into the Spokane River.

Latah Creek receives its name from a Nez Perce word likely meaning "fish". In 1854, the creek received another name, Hangman Creek, from a war between the Palouse Indians and white soldiers, which resulted in several Palouse being hanged alongside the creek.


The name "Latah" stems from a Nez Perce word meaning "a place of pines and sestles", or "fish". However, there are controversies that even stretch the truth as far as to say that "Latah" is not part of the native dialect. Nevertheless, "Latah" is believed to have been the creek's name for a very long period of time. The name "Hangman" originated from when 17 Palouse Indians were hanged along the creek after a war. Washington State and Spokane County both approve Latah Creek as the official name, while the federal government still identifies the creek is "Hangman". Arguments resulted over whether this name too gruesome and bloody a term or it is not politically correct.

Other variant names of the creek include Sin-sin-too-ooley, Camas Prairie Creek, Hangmans Creek, Hangman's Creek, Camass Prairie Creek, Hngosmn, Kamas Prairie Creek, Lah-Tah, Lah-taw, Lah-too, Lahtoo, Lartoo, Lau-taw Creek, Lautaw Creek, Ned-Wauld River, Nedlewhauld, Neduald, Nedwhauld River, and Sin-sin-too-aley.

When the Lewis and Clark Expedition passed the area in 1805, they believed that the name was "Lau-taw". Later in a railroad survey, the name used on the small-scale maps was Camas Prairie Creek, while on the maps of larger scale, the name was Kamas Prairie Creek. Other derivatives, including Lahtoo and Kamass, arose from these names, but another name, Nedlwhauld Creek (or Nedwhauld River) was also documented. During a later road-building survey, the Nedlwhauld/Nedwhauld name was preferred over the others, but by 1861, the name had been changed to Hangman's. By 1959, the US Board on Geographic Names officially changed it to Hangman Creek. In 2001, Washington State proposed that the name be changed to Latah, to no avail.


In 1854, Latah Creek received its other name, Hangman Creek, which stayed for over a century and a half. According to legend, a Palouse Indian named Qualchan, discovered a cavalry outpost while traveling alone. He was said to have prayed to the god of the mist to disarm the camp's sentries, and as a result, it began to snow, and when the snow had changed into a blizzard, Qualchan led the whites' horses out of the camp, and took them to his camp on the Columbia River. The Indians later rediscovered the whites' camp, only to find that they had left. His war party was later discovered, and after a brief war, called the "George Wright War", "Spokane-Coeur d'Aléne War", or "Big Fight", Qualchan and six other Palouses were captured and hanged along Latah Creek, giving it its now more commonly used name, Hangman Creek. On 5 October of that year, four more Indians were hanged alongside the creek. In November, 33 Indian hostages were released, ending the war. In the aftermath, the Washington State government and the U.S. Board on Geographic Names have frequently disagreed on the name of the creek. While Washington State, specifically Spokane County, claims and refers to the creek as Latah, the Board and local residents still refers to the creek as Hangman.

A single known bog lay beside Latah Creek for many tens of thousands of years, dating from the previous Ice Age. This bog was discovered in May 1876 by a homesteader, Benjamin Coplen, who found what seemed to be a gigantic bone in the peat-covered water. Coplen then located a vertebra of similarly large scale, and a shoulder blade. The bog was quickly drained, and an enormous quantity of bones were discovered. The shoulder blade and vertebra were later determined to be that of a woolly mammoth. Nearby homesteaders William and Thomas Donahoe also drained a similar bog, and located more bones and a skull. These bones, along with those from the Coplen bog, were delivered first to other cities in Washington State for exhibition. The original mammoth skeleton was later delivered to the Chicago Academy of Sciences, and then the Field Museum of Natural History of Chicago. It was later proposed that the Missoula Floods were responsible for depositing a "bathtub ring" in the channeled scablands of Washington and Idaho, including in this particular bog.

Segment two title: "The Genesis Tub"

In front of her mirror, Lisa looks at the newest gap in her dentition.

Lisa: This tooth will be perfect for my science project. [sets up her exhibit: "Will cola dissolve a tooth?"] Science has already proven the dangers of smoking, alcohol and chinese food, but I can still ruin soft drinks for everyone!

Bart: Hey, Lis. Check out my science project. [rubs a balloon over his head, then touches Lisa with a spark of static electricity]

Lisa: Ow! What's that's supposed to prove?

Bart: That nerds conduct electricity. [touches her again]

Lisa: Ow!

Bart runs away laughing, and Lisa gets back to her exhibit. When she touches her tooth, now soaking in cola, she gets a shock again. "Stupid Bart" she grumbles, not making much a case of it.

Throughout the night, Lisa sleeps deeply, while the tooth and the cola seem to undergo some sort of strange electrical reaction. Come morning, Lisa wakes up and looks at her experiment.

Oh boy, mold! That's science fair pay dirt.

She brings the tub under her microscope for further analysis. "Looks about the same" she complains, until she notices the microscope is set for 1x magnification. She brings it to 10x, then 100x, to find something shocking: miniature prehistoric human lifeform.

Lisa: [gasps] Tiny little people! My God! I've created life!

Marge: Lisa! Breakfast! We're having waffles!

Lisa: Ooh! Waffles! [runs down]

She gets disappointed once she reaches her seat, as the promised waffles are "just square pancakes", the waffle iron being in the shop. "The waffle iron's been in the shop forever" she grumbles back to her room.

Skydiver Free As A Bird After Court Appearance

October 27, 1986 By James Peters and Larry Sutton, New York Daily News

NEW YORK -- Shea Stadium parachute jumper Michael Sergio walked out of Queens Criminal Court Sunday without paying a penny -- all because the man on the bench was a fan in the stands.

Sergio, who skydived onto the field during Saturday night`s World Series game, stood before Judge Alan Beldock to hear charges of criminal nuisance, criminal trespass, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct.

Queens Assistant District Attorney Michelle Goldstein asked the judge to set $10,000 bail, arguing that the stunt could have backfired and harmed someone at the game.

But the judge released the high-flying fan on his own recognizance and ordered a Nov. 24 court hearing.

``I`m a Mets season-ticket holder,`` Beldock said. ``I was there when it happened. I`m still trying to figure where he came from.``

Both fans and Mets players welcomed Sergio, 37, of Manhattan, with cheers and applause when he parachuted into the stadium with a banner reading ``Go Mets.``

Mets ace Ron Darling slapped him five and the other Mets laughed and cheered as he was hustled out through the Mets dugout.

But Queens District Attorney John Santucci said he was not amused.

``It could have meant injury, panic and tears if he had crashed into the stands or players,`` said the DA.

Sergio, who spent Saturday night in jail, said he got the idea for the stunt after reading an article by Ron Darling in the New York Daily News in which Darling complained that the team was not getting the same support from the World Series fans as they got from the regular season fans.

A snowy arrival of winter in Spokane, Inland Northwest

By Mike Prager

A snowstorm Friday foreshadowed the official beginning of winter today and slowed traffic around the Inland Northwest.

Spokane International Airport reported 3 inches of snow at 4 p.m. Friday as snowfall began to ease at nightfall.

A 10-vehicle collision with one fatality blocked both westbound lanes of Interstate 90 seven miles east of Ritzville for several hours Friday afternoon. Westbound drivers were detoured.

The accident occurred at 12:46 p.m.

Elsewhere, traffic moved slowly during the evening commute. The Washington State Patrol responded to at least 90 collisions in Spokane, Adams, Whitman and Stevens counties, and dozens of slideoffs were reported in urban areas.

The National Weather Service is calling for partly sunny skies and a high of 32 in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene today.

Forecasters warned that blowing snow could cover roadways today in the Palouse, where heavier snow totals were predicted. Depths of 4 to 9 inches were expected there and in the central Panhandle and Silver Valley in North Idaho. Even more snow was expected in the mountains.

Maintenance crews had applied deicer to roadways prior to the storm and were continuing with full crews to keep roadways passable.

Friday’s accumulation was predicted to surpass the 3.3 inches of snow measured through Thursday this season at the airport. Normally, Spokane sees 16 inches of snow by this point in the season.

There is a small chance of rain or snow on Sunday, when highs go up to 36.

Another storm packing valley rain is expected on Monday with a high of 40. The storm has moisture flowing into it from subtropical latitudes in the Pacific Ocean. It may also bring strong winds across the lower Columbia Basin, Palouse and Blue Mountains. The storm should also bring snow to the mountains.

Travel weather is forecast to improve starting Tuesday as storm systems are mainly pushed away from the region by higher air pressure. Partly to mostly sunny skies are expected for Tuesday through Thursday, with highs near freezing and lows in the 20s.

Today’s storm is bringing much-needed precipitation to the region. Spokane is nearly 3 inches below normal for precipitation since Oct. 1.

Treehouse of Horror VII [ The Simpsons ]

Original airdate in U.S.: 27-Oct-96

A Frink-like man rejoices.

It worked! The de-bigulator world!

The audience hails her, and what seems to be a spiritual leader greets her.

Leader: Welcome to our world, most gracious Lisa.

Lisa: Your world is incredible. And you speak English.

Leader: We have listened to you speak since the dawn of time, O Creator. And we have learned to imatoot you exarktly.

The audience bows, revealing a statue of Lisa. She then realizes that she is granted the status of godhood, as she is the one who created this world. In that aspect, those people are counting on her to save them from the devil, ie. Bart.

When she announces that the devil is her brother, murmurs emerge from the audience. Gradually, people come forward with the usual boring theological questions (why does a good god allow bad things).

Lisa: Listen, I can take care of everything. All you have to do is unshrink me.

Frink: Unshrink you? Well, that would require some sort of a re-bigulator, which is a concept so ridiculous is makes me want to laugh out loud and chortle, and... [Lisa looks at him] uh... but not at you, O holiest of gods, with the wrathfulness and the vengeance and the blood rain and the hey-hey-hey-it-hurts-me...

His words are quickly covered by screams from the audience, as the grinning face of Bart appears in the sky. He closes the tub, which is later opened by... Principal Skinner.

First-rate work, Bart. This universe you've created is even more impressive than Martin's milk-carton ukulele.

Skinner nominates Bart as winner, and instructs Willy to throw out the other projects. Children moan.

Principal Skinner, wait! I created the universe! Give me the gift certificate!

Lisa: Oh, great. I'm stuck in this lousy tub for the rest of my life. [people stare at her] Shouldn't you people be grovelling? [they do] And bring me some shoes. Nice ones.

Man: She'll want socks, too. I'll get socks.

Saved from the Titanic

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Saved from the Titanic is a 1912 American silent motion picture short starring Dorothy Gibson, an American film actress who survived the sinking of the RMS Titanic on April 15, 1912. Premiering in the United States just 29 days after the event, it is the earliest dramatization about the tragedy.

Gibson had been one of 28 people aboard the first lifeboat to be launched from Titanic and was rescued about five and a half hours after leaving the ship. On returning to New York City, she co-wrote the script and played a fictionalized version of herself. The plot involves her recounting the story of the disaster to her fictional parents and fiancé, with the footage interspersed with stock footage of icebergs, Titanic's sister ship Olympic and the ship's captain, Edward Smith. To add to the film's authenticity, Gibson wore the same clothes as on the night of the disaster. The filming took place in a New Jersey studio and aboard a derelict ship in New York Harbor.

The film was released internationally and attracted large audiences and positive reviews, though some criticized it for commercializing the tragedy so soon after the event. It is now regarded as a lost film, as the last known prints were destroyed in an Éclair studio fire in March 1914. Only a few printed stills and promotional photos are known to survive. It is Gibson's penultimate film, as she reportedly suffered a mental breakdown after completing it.

Subject: RE: 03 March 2003

So anyway, what is the point to all this?

Well, it has something to do with my so-called time-traveler effects variables.

Recently, despite how obvious it seems, I only recently started to consciously consider the notion of time-traveler effect constants.

Constants and variables are opposite notions, obviously.

A variable has a definition that varies.

A constant is a detail that does not change.

For example a person’s social security number might be variable [ correction: might be constant ] but that same person’s telephone number might vary.

That is sort of the kind of example a computer programmer might understand but it’s not a very good example because it lacks practicality and best and my mind can recall now.

So anyway, a time-traveler effect variable is something I have defined many times in my ranting notes because I began to suspect that is what I am seeing happen around me all the time.

At some point in the recent past I began to suspect that someday I will become literally a time-traveler. Literally, I will somehow figure out how to escape the reality of the present time and transfer myself into the reality of a calendar date and time that has already passed.

So when I do that, which I believe will be to transfer myself to the reality of the past date of 03 March 2003, I am taking all my notes with me and one of the people who meets there when I become a successful time-traveler will then be the recipient of time-traveler information.

JOURNAL ARCHIVE: - posted by H.V.O.M - Kerry Wayne Burgess 10:27 AM Pacific Time Seattle USA Saturday 06 April 2013 -

Lately I have been thinking I am a shape-shifter. My mind can shift into any shape I want and that reorganization of the physical structure of my brain causes memories to seem real. I recently imagined a past conversation where I had explained how my new-found awareness of shape-shifting capabilities had wreaked havoc on my sense of identity. So eventually I thought about how I was not even aware until almost 24 years old that I was a shape-shifter. And from there I established my true sense of self, my sense of identity as though I had never learned I was a shape-shifter.

Finally I am thinking about how to manipulate the observations I make on a daily basis to tell me about my own personal future and I have given that some thought lately.

I started thinking recently with a greater sense of certainty that the sources of information I track have details about my personal future.

Those of you paying attention remember how I have established in my writings that I believe my writings are information I will transfer to the future of this present day when I time-travel to the past on my first excursion to the past. My first arrival date will be 03 March 2003 and that is when I give to my sister-in-law my journal. She is now using that information from the future to influence decisions she makes with her resources.

So that tells me........nothing. Absolutely nothing. See, I have no idea about their objectives. Hell, I probably gave them the idea by writing about it here and transferring it to the future. There must be a point to all this.

And they can see what I am doing every day and what I am planning to do and so they are telling me nothing about the future.

Or are they?

If I record the future of this present day into this journal then they will have that information already. They know already what information I will post here tomorrow on this blog. I have absolutely no idea what information I will post tomorrow on this blog or any day beyond this day. All I know is this blog posting I am working on now. I am not planning on making any posts beyond this post.

And see, I started looking closer at details associated with stuff I had been looking at on the internet and that I have not written about here. I have not mentioned a single detail about what I have been looking at. And I see a familiar pattern forming. AND AND AND that pattern is consistent with the sleeping dreams I have. It seems completely unpredictable to me and I feel rational enough to understand that I might simply be overlooking something and I feel with certainty there is no way anything I am doing could cause me to see the pattern I see and I believe that at some point in the future I document certain details and those details get time-traveled to the past and there are people out there right now who have information about the future. The kind of personal details I am not ever going to publish in this public blog. I don’t even throw my grocery receipts into the trash. I don’t throw utility bills into the trash. Whether I time-travel those details to the past is another story. I might just burn it.

So anyway I wonder about the future. I don't know what the hell I am doing. I am so damned tired of this.

Subject: RE: Let's see if you can do I-90.

So that's what it was. That's what I dreamed of very early this morning or last night.

I had been aware for a long time of the "Stargate: Atlantis" television series but I had never, until this past hour, given some serious thought about the plot elements that form the drama of that television series. I have never before watched any episode from that television series. I have seen glimpses of scenes but the notion of "Wraith" is new to me today.

I started to wonder about how that 16 July 2004 premiere happens after 03 March 2003.

And then looking at those creepy figures in the images, the "Wraith" I had to look at it a few minutes, after having read a lot about them a few minutes, that is what I must have seen in my dream the last time I was sleeping today.

I am wondering about it because of how prescient are my other dreams lately.

Maybe I am winning against them by telling you this.

So anyway, the dream started with me walking into a house. My mother was there with me and so was my sister. I think again now as I write this, as it seemed to me later after the dream, that figures in my dream are not literal. So I recall that I was very angry. There was a group of washing machines on the lower floor of the house we were in and there were enough of them there to seem it was a commercial facility but that doesn't get explained in the dream. The reason I am so angry is because I am looking at the manifold where clean water is supposed to flow into the washing machines, an observation was presently simply to my sleeping mind and that seems more complicated than it is while I describe it, and the water was very brown colored. I was very angry about that. I have been thinking all day since then about one of those episodes from the "Lost" television series where they found a pool of water in some secret building and that water has some kind of regeneration powers for humans, to the point of immortality, but the water had turned brown and the people who used it were concerned about it. I haven't thought about that episode in years. So anyway, I am upstairs in the house, which doesn't have anything familiar about it, and my mother is there and so is my sister. And then the zombies appear. At some point, I am seeing them in the yard walking along as I am talking to mother. I am angry at her now. She has threatened to cancel my source of income and there is some dialog that is now too vague to recall. And the hostility escalates to the point I am choking her by the throat and I said something in the dream similar to "I'll kill you too." But it wasn't her. As with most people in my dreams, I never see them clearly. They are figures similar to the people I see when I am outside and they are in my peripheral vision. I see people in dreams in a similar way. With few exceptions I never see anyone clearly and in detail. But I could see her in more detail now and after I looked at those photos of the "Wraith" that was very similar to what I was seeing and I had my hands around its neck and I was enjoying choking it. I think I stopped though and I didn't kill it. But the part I thought of most throughout today was the zombies. I cannot now recall if the zombies showed up first. I don't think they did. I think the dirty water caused the hostilities towards the person I was choking. Then the first zombie came in the house and I used my fist to hit it very hard and then I physically threw it out the same door it came in although that last part wasn't something I visualized. I did visualized the second zombie come in again towards us and that one I saw myself slam it against the wall and I knew in the dream that I also threw it out the same door it came in but that was a different door than the first zombie came through. The same story with the third and final zombie but I don't recall visualizing any of that action. I just knew it came through a third door and I simply knew I had thrown back out the same door it came through.

And then there were the zombies themselves. I don't think I have ever actually dreamed of zombies. I have written many times before that I dream while sleeping of activities I have worked on so it seems that my research on zombie topics would show up in my sleeping dreams but I guess I never woke up from any of those or that I never had any that I became aware of. Those zombies in my dream while last sleeping weren't actually doing anything threatening. They were just stumbling around and walking as you see zombies act in movies but they weren't biting anybody. They were just lumbering about with expressions that seemed kind of stupor. I was thinking later they might be something I used to call "pre-zombies" but they are advanced beyond that but not yet cannibalistic.

So anyway, the images of the "Wraith" make me think now in this hour about the similarities to the "Morlocks" from 1960.

Also, the predatory nature of the "Wraith" is similar to thoughts I have had for a while. As "Kirk" said in "Metamorphosis" "How do you beat something like that?" The "Wraith's" also resemble that chief "Morlock" in the 2002 remake of "The Time Machine" and there is the scene where he is strangling the starring character.

Also, if you stretch your imagination for a moment and try to believe something is possible then that all explains what my "mother" is supposed to represent in my dreams. I think about I have written before about that in the context of that ancient being in the 2000 "Mission to Mars" film.

Stretching it again you could understand why I would travel backwards in time when presented with the opportunity. That's only way to beat them.

And now look at me. Listen to the people in the world as they ignore me again today.

RAMART: Like a whole city in space, Charlie. Over four hundred in the crew of a starship, aren't there, Captain?

KIRK: Four hundred and twenty eight, to be exact. Is there anything we can do for you, Captain? Medical supplies, provisions?

CHARLIE: Hundreds. All human, like me. That's exciting. Is that the right word?
