The Kinks – Apeman
What’s on your mind tonite…?
Hey CTut, how goes it?
There was a blog here a few hours ago, lots of posts about Ron Paul. I left my pc on and just now went to refresh it. WordPress put up a window saying the blog was taken down because it was spam and was against their terms of service. Was wondering if anyone knew/knows what that was about.
CT! hiya astro twin. Just passing thru on my way to bed … i was babysitting today and the g-unit wore me out!
Are you the Ape Man? G) Do we hear about OHilo?
Aloha, Louis…! I’m a top Mauna Kea again for Keck tonite…!
They’re singing Apeman but all I can hear in my mind is Lola. Weird.
Aloha, ndfg, The Better Half got to see the munchkin today…! ;-)
Wow, CT. Sounds like you are pretty high. Ahem. What’s Keck?
*heh* Actually we set up under a big old Monkey pod tree, I’ll be uploading some video I took of Occupy Hilo’s little campout/Xmas party…! ;-)
Here’s their website…!
I’m partial to Destroyer…! ;-)
Very cool. I like this part: “… corrects for the image distortions by measuring and then correcting for the atmospheric turbulence using a deformable mirror that changes shape 2,000 times per second.”
Here’s some of their earliest stuff… Sunny Afternoon
Of which, it most certainly wasn’t yesterday afternoon…! 8-(

Nice canopy for rain and wind.
They also shoot a laser up to the Sodium layer in the upper atmosphere to further adjust their optics…!
The scientist that run the research of the universe may know that the edge of the universe is like 400 parsecs away, where it is the end of time.
Doesn’t that blow your mind!
Nice canopy for rain and wind.
*heh* Not as effective as you might think…! ;-)
I’m bummed tho, we had 5 people committed to be ‘sleepers’, myself included, and 4 showed up, then by 8pm the three others wimped out…! *gah*
We did have 20 people there most of the day for sign waving and the GA…!
You got a start and good support!
As Tears Go By…
Keep up the fight and do not despair, grasshopper. And don’t forget that FDL Supply will help you with those below-zero degrees nights ;)
Having made a big old Occupy Hilo sign out of a sheet, really boosted the amount of honks and shakas from all the vehicles passing by, as compared to our prior sign waving events…! ;-)
I do enjoy my black Beanie up here at 14,000 ft…! ;-)
I’m telling ya tho, Occupy Supply is a real morale booster…! *g*
Cool…good sheet man.
What about the end of time at the edge of the Universe? That is so outasite. G)
I think a single parsec is mind blowing enough…! ;-)
Imagine trading Credit Default Swaps at 2,000 a second…you could lose a lot of money in a hurry. Whoops over margin must rehypothecate.
I’d add that there is no ‘end of time’, basically alternate/parallel universes abound, similar to what you see at the atomic level…! ;-)
Hey everyone! Ctuttle’s music is taking me waaay back tonight. Thanks, CT!
Jets cruise at 33,000 brrr. Still hard to imagine 14K Mt Everest is 29,000.

Aloha, Loo Hoo…! Glad ya like ‘em…! ;-) How’s SoCal…?
The more honks the better and nice to hear it (pun intended).
If you actually measure Mauna Kea’s true height from the Sea Floor, and not Sea Level, MK tops Mt. Everest by about 10k ft…! ;-)
Are you referring to universes that are separated from each other by a single quantum event? Maybe the doorway is a blackhole like the on recently viewed by your telescope?
Hmmm…! I wonder what happened…? The code looked alright…!
In the Ghetto
I think you’re right but, I wouldn’t want to be the one to physically test that theorum out…! ;-)
Get Off of My Cloud…
Mauna Kea stands 4205 m (13800 ft) above sea level, just 35 m (110 ft) higher … Measured from its base on the ocean floor, it rises over 10000 m (33000 ft), …. the same day that the Lele (altar) that marks the actual summit of Mauna Kea was erected.
Measuring from base to peak, Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain on earth. … It’s 10204 meters from its base on the sea floor to its tip. …. If we take these basins as the “true” base of both Mount Lamlam and Challenger Deep respectively, a more
There is a higher mountain but not on Earth…we have enough mountains to climb!
Major Tom to ground control
Though I’m past one hundred thousand miles, I’m feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much, she knows
Ground control to major Tom, your circuits dead, there’s something wrong
evening, CT … firegods
Hmmm… So it’s only about 4,000 ft taller, eh…? The Himalayas already begin at about 5,000 ft from the Indian subcontinent, much like how the Rockies start at a mile high already…!
Aloha, PPD…! How’s your slice of Cali, tonite…?
Seasons in The Sun…
overcast tonight, so temperatures won’t hit the 30′s
Punaise did an awesome parody on Major Tom awhile ago called A Cain Oddity…! ;-)
You are moving NW 3.9 inches a year! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawaii_hotspot
We’re actually sinking a few cm’s every year…! ;-)
Ah, but imagine a transaction tax on 2,000 transactions/second.
Piers Anthony had a great sci-fi book, “Macroscope”, that dealt with end of time, circle of time, big bang, the whole kabob. (I liked a lot of his sci-fi.)
Ooh, the high Relative Humidity is forcing us to close both domes…!
Night night all. Sweet dreams :)
The Night Chicago Died…
Pleasant dreams, Louis…!

He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother…
*heh* Totally Righteous tune…! ;-)
In The Year 2525…
The atmosphere seems filled with mirth no wonder the telescope isn’t operating so well. An I donut smoke.
On another note Peace is a concept not well understood on planet Earth. Must be lack of educational funding.
As I was listening I was chopping hard bread up with a passion and laughing so hard. This mirth stuff you have on the planet is quite strong doncha think?
Well, the Domes are closed now for the time being and I’m not going anywhere anytime soon…!
Billy Don’t Be A Hero…
Jimmy best sums it up…! ;-) …if we couldn’t laugh we would all go insane…
Didn’t the three wise men bring some mirth with them? I like taking some with me when I leave home. And didn’t some wise person say don’t leave home without it? G)
I believe it was myrrh, but that sounds good to me…! ;-)

Cat’s in the Cradle…
You should know you were there right…not to say you are getting old but but… I guess gives you myrrh mirth. Where is Punaise when you need him.
I’ve been busy trying to locate a Youtube somebody had posted the other day that went from a Parsec down to a picometer…! I’m kicking myself in the arse for not saving it…!
Stay warm up there hope they feed you well CT. Good night!
That they do here at Keck…! Pleasant dreams, bb…!
Apeman. Great song. THanks.
