Mon. Jan. 14, 2019 – um, the end is nigh?

38F, and slightly less than saturated. Yesterday was clear, sunny, and cool. I certainly hope it warms up today. I’ve got a ton of work to do before the end of the world.

About that. I haven’t repeated it because it was even more doom-er than usual, but now I’m seeing it again, and in a different place and it might be a real thing…even though it’s reported in Nature.

“Earth’s magnetic field, otherwise known as the geomagnetic field, is the magnetic field that extends from the Earth’s inner core out into space, where it deflects harmful radiation from the Sun.

But now something bizarre is taking place. Earth’s north magnetic pole has been rapidly shifting away from Canada and towards the Siberian Federal District, driven mostly by liquid iron churning deep within the planet’s core.

“The magnetic pole is moving so quickly that it has forced the world’s geomagnetism experts into a rare move,” Nature reported.”

-snip–

“”The location of the north magnetic pole appears to be governed by two large-scale patches of magnetic field, one beneath Canada and one beneath Siberia,” Phil Livermore of the University of Leeds told an American Geophysical Union meeting. “The Siberian patch is winning the competition.”

In the meantime, geophysicists are trying to figure out why the magnetic field is shifting.”

–snip==

“Geophysicists do note that Earth can undergo a “geomagnetic reversal,” where these magnetic poles switch sides. The last time this happened was 781,000 years ago, but it is believed to have occurred every 20,000 to 30,000 years over the last 20 million years.

Could the erratic motion of the north magnetic pole be a hint that a “geomagnetic reversal” is already underway? If so, what are the consequences for planet Earth? “

In other words, the pole is moving, a lot, and weirdly, so CLEARLY we’re all about to go extinct in a pole reversal event. I’m sure that’s it.

And hey, maybe that is what’s causing all the shifting and unrest in the world. Geopolitical unrest and change linked to changes in the magnetic field of the earth? We’d better Do Something ™, For The Children ™.

added- seriously though, it’s enough they have to fix the map. That is big, if not exactly unprecedented. I blame the US, HAARP, and Climate Change. Oh, and Trump too.

  1. In other words, the pole is moving, a lot, and weirdly, so CLEARLY we’re all about to go extinct in a pole reversal event. I’m sure that’s it.

    At some point in the last decade, I saw something on PBS or Discovery about the possibility of a pole reversal. Life won’t go extinct, but things like navigation and certain broadcast signals would be wonky until things got sorted out.

    Among other things, all new transits and total stations for the survey crews mean $$$ for the manufacturers. Our total stations are Nikon and cost five figures.

    In case you’re curious, loops in the road or any other sensor requiring vehicle contact/proximity are old school for vehicle detection and classification on toll roads. The downside is that the new techniques require really accurate surveys which a lot of civil construction crews aren’t capable of providing anymore.

  2. Well declare it settled science and the new normal. Create new rules and a czar of geomagnetism. Of course new ‘pole’ taxes on everything.

  3. The couple whose house Jayme Closs showed up called 911 immediately. You have a murder, kidnapper, a psycho on the loose and then this from the article:

    “Police showed up about 20 to 30 minutes later.”

    Seriously? It took police over 20 minutes to show up. Remember that folks when the democrats want to take your guns. Help is just 20 to 30 minutes away.

  4. dkreck for the win!

    “require really accurate surveys which a lot of civil construction crews aren’t capable of providing anymore”

    While researching some land titles and the changes over the years this became very apparent. Additionally, each succeeding survey declares theirs to be correct and accurate and all the proceeding surveys to be wrong. “I proceeded to corner x,y,z where I found an existing iron rod, 0.6ft N and 0.3ft west of the corner.” The freaking arrogance of that statement makes my blood boil! The corner IS THE ROD. You found it within 4 inches!

    On one title change, the adjoining property is defined by math, ie, go in a curve of radius x, so many feet, then straight at angle y for so many feet, then continue in a curve at radius z (hundreds of feet radius) for some feet until reaching the NW corner. NO ONE laid out the radius full size and swung an arc. Can’t do it. So they all used math with varying precision. The amazing thing is that the 4 different surveys all locate that corner within a few feet of each other. The maddening thing is that they all think they keep IMPROVING the accuracy of where the corner should be.

    To make it even worse, one of the title changes cuts off the bottom of the triangle shaped lot, which has the effect of shortening the line from the bottom left corner to the bottom right corner. The deed just cut and pastes the length of that property edge from the previous description, instead of laying out and measuring or calculating the new length. this has the effect of putting the new bottom right corner inside OUR property, if you measure from the diagonal line on the left.

    ALL OF WHICH IS WRONG ANYWAY, since the original grant on the property defines his right edge as “coincident” with OUR left edge property line (the numbers listed in the description are DESCRIPTIVE, not DEFINITIVE, as the definition is “coincident” with our line). OUR line is very easy to locate as our lot is a rectangle, aligned with the compass. Locate our right hand line (and you can do so from original markers), measure 300ft left, and you get his line. Period full stop. But NO, they want to measure from the other side, using a calculated point, on the diagonal line, that you can’t locate either the original starting point (because it’s under a building) or the calculated end point, nor the angle that the diagonal line takes, due to changes in the pole…. and then measure to the right a number which is incorrect due to a cut and paste error.

    No one caught the error, and no one looked in detail at the survey results for decades. NOW it’s an issue because our fence is on “his” property. (and it actually is. I know because I measured from our right edge to our left edge, a simple 300ft, and we are MANY feet onto his property.) Over the last 50 years people have moved the fence on that side several times. Every so often, someone would say “Hey, don’t we own 15ft outside the fence? Let’s get that space back.” and then they would forget the fence moved, and a couple decades later, they did so AGAIN, until we were seriously on the adjoining property (which was basically an undeveloped field.)

    So yeah, there is a lack of detailed and critical thinking, a culture that mistakes precision for accuracy, and no one wants to take the time to figure out WHY there is a problem or dispute.

  5. The amazing thing is that the 4 different surveys all locate that corner within a few feet of each other. The maddening thing is that they all think they keep IMPROVING the accuracy of where the corner should be.

    Within five years (if not sooner), as part of the AR push, I think most high end phones will have sufficient sensors and computing power to generate accurate survey data down to .1 m if not cm. A lot of revelations will come out of that.

    If not a phone by itself then definitely a plug in hardware module.

  6. 16º and sunny here. Better than Friday, as it’s not damp & not windy. Nice, even.

    While reviewing the title for our house when we bought it, some interesting things came to light. The original lot was 3×125′ frontages combined, for a total of 375′ of frontage. Uncle Harry & Aunt Pearl were hounded by their daughter to sell them enough to build a house, so they sold them 100′ from the south side, which left 275′ of frontage for the main lot. so when we reviewed the deed we spotted “275′ – 100′ deeded to xxx”. We had them expand that to “375′ – 100′ deeded to xxx, leaving 275′ of frontage.” It’s a small thing but could be a real pain in the butt later.

  7. @greg, there was a sci fi novel a dozen years ago or more, set in Seattle I think, where everyone is living in an AR world 24/7, because it’s so handy. The problem being, as the protagonist discovers when (s)he gets cut off [don’t remember why] is that everyone is being lied to with the AR. The powers that run the AR are hiding homelessness, and other more sinister things, iirc.

    Can’t think of the name of the book, but can you imagine the “fake news” writ large in a world of pervasive AR? Download an app to remove all references to someone and completely unperson them… or one that removes homeless bums, or trash, or drug users… or one that makes every woman look like a naked anime character….

  8. Can’t think of the name of the book, but can you imagine the “fake news” writ large in a world of pervasive AR?

    By AR I meant Augmented Reality.

    My work iPhone already does some measurements between two points on a line in a picture. I don’t think it is a stretch to predict a phone appearing within five years, maybe sooner, having the capability do our site survey measurements down to cm.

    Just having a sanity check on the provided numbers down to .1 m would save us a lot of time. The toll road business is a boomin’ in Texas, and the West Coast hasn’t even really been a player until recently (but catching up fast).

  9. Yep, augmented reality.

    Way back in the late 80s early 90s there was a book by one of my favorites set in the distant future, where space travel and many occupied worlds are common, the main computer interface is nano stuff that floats on your eyes. The world is filled with AR, advertising signs, info overlays, copyright notices, all coordinated by low power ir and lasers tracking your eye movement and shining on nano receptors floating on your eye. The term AR didn’t exist, but the concept is old. All the data transfer was with light aimed at your eyes too, iirc. Whole worlds are populated by deaf people who don’t know any lack because of the tech everyone has…

    And whaddayaknow, people are looking at LiFi or light to transfer data. Wearables are becoming more common. Implants are more common. Many people rarely experience the raw world first hand, preferring mediated views, curated by instagram personalities, etc. Much of what some people see in ads and articles is targeted and curated specifically for them, via facebook and other social media with deep data mining to keep it focused. Their experience of the world is very different from mine. It’s part of how we have become so divided as a nation.

    For now, we can opt out. I run adblockers, skip ads with tivo, download ad free programming and watch independently created media. But it’s seductive. I let google track me IRL because their maps are so dang convenient. I’d use the garmin more, but the voice interface is SO handy with the phone. Websites are making it harder to avoid their tracking and focused ads. The real world is sticking ads and trackers everywhere. We really aren’t very far away from a future where everyone gets the custom experience of the world around them most likely to get what some other power wants, be it a sale, social unrest, social calm, or who knows what.

    And having created this hell, the new lords and ladies of the manor are increasingly buying their way out of it, keeping their kids uninfected, using their money for the one thing the rest of us won’t have- privacy.

    “Of the new 24 GWs, 46 percent of it will be from wind and 18 percent will be generated by solar for a combined total of 64 percent of the new electric generation capacity coming from renewable sources.”

    “Of the 8 GWs of capacity set to retire in 2019, 4.5 GWs will come from retired coal-fired plants, most notably the 2.3 GW Navajo plant in Arizona.”

  12. Note the CEO bailing….

    Coward.

    n

    No, not appropriate. CEO is a female. Sexism so ’90s.

  13. Wave Goodbye to Gillette

    “I got sick of paying $3.50 for a five-bladed monstrosity (six, if you count the trimming edge) which lasted half a week, long before I got sick of Gillette being all woke.”

    Cue up the “cutting your own throat” jokes …. 😀

  14. No, not appropriate. CEO is a female. Sexism so ’90s.

    So 80s. The 90s were the decade of Carly Fiorina destroying Lucent before heading over to drive HP and, by merger, Compaq and Digital into the ground.

    Wall Street cheered Fiorina’s hiring at HP despite knowing full well that her record of growth at Lucent was all done with borrowed money.

  15. I have been using <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Art-Shaving-Cream-Sandalwood-fl/dp/B000FGWU0W/ref=dp_ccx_cts_title_luxe_1shaving?tag=ttgnet-20 cream from “The Art of Shaving”. Really good stuff. I also use a good quality badger hair brush to apply the shaving cream. I also use “Art of Shaving” <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Art-Shaving-Pre-Shave-Oil-Sandalwood/dp/B000FGTTTM/ref=dp_ccx_cts_title_luxe_1pre-shave?tag=ttgnet-20 oil on my skin. That seems to help in making things smoother.

    However, I am still using the multiple blade cartridges from Gillette. I have tried using a double edge blade, high quality blades and a top notch handle. Still not as smooth a shave as the cartridges. The double edge also tends to make my skin a little raw. The Gillette handle I use has a small motor to vibrate the handle.

    Part of my issue is that I now only shave twice a week. No need to get gussied up when you don’t have to go to work. The longer whiskers may be part of the problem.

  16. FTA:

    P.S. Don’t the marketing whizzes at Gillette know that the woke bros are all sporting ironic lumberjack beards these days?

    I don’t know that I’m a “woke bro”, but I haven’t touched a razor in 20+ years. Trimmers only a couple of times a year up top, and maybe once/year under the chin.

    Why? Because I saw all these kids sporting beards that make me cringe. So I decided to show them how it’s done. Winning.

  17. “… but I haven’t touched a razor in 20+ years.”

    44 years pour moi, and I most definitely am not “woke”.

    Every six weeks my barber cuts my hair and trims the beard.

  18. I shave once a week or less. Usually when one of the kids says something. I was using my trusty Sensor handle and blades, but gillette stopped making the blades, and new old stock was running out.

    I think I’m using a 5 bladed monstrosity with a weirdly angled head because the blades are interchangeable with my wife’s razor. We don’t use the same toothpaste, soap, or shampoo, but I can use her blades….

    I just use Dr Bonners soap, like I’m washing my face, or shave with just water, or even dry. I get a couple of months from a blade set. Clean it, and keep it dry.

  19. Talking about someone’s beard or facial hair is equivalent to discussing
    someone’s boobs, uh, breasts. Both are secondary sexual characteristics,
    subject to harassment rules.

    I kept meaning to bring that stuff up, back when I was employed…

  20. When I first started to learn shaving, I had a Trac2 razor. It was fine for dry shaving the down mustache. Then some actual real whiskers sprouted. Finally, at 24, whiskers!

    Ok, I can do this! Grr!!! Manly man! Soap face and well, actually, I can’t do this. A three inch double track slice across the cheek. Customers at work were still asking what happened two weeks later.

    The next day had me at K-Mart where I bought a Norelco double header for $20.

    I replaced the blades a few years later. The next attempted blade change resulted in buying a new Norelco triple header with the pop-up trimmer because why pay $25 for new blades on a 20 year old shaver when you can get a whole new shaver for $32?

    The trimmer is good for my so-called mustache. It’s also good as a “pre-shaver” if you skip shaving for a while. That Norelco is just as happy pulling hair out by the roots as it is to cut it.

    Gripe gripe gripe. If I shave it all off I get carded everywhere when I try to buy beer. Not bad for being 61.


  21. I get carded everywhere when I try to buy beer

    I think that is for mental stability and not age.

  22. Goodwill REALLY wants to give me the Senior Discount. I’m still a couple years short. But, SOLID silver hair now, and rugged good looks 🙂 Girls like scars, right? I kid. I had an awesome plastic surgeon for some of them, the ones that faded to the point where you can’t really see 60 out of the 80 or 90 stitches….

    It’s not like I’m Frankenstein’s Monster, but for a long time it WAS the first question new people would ask. Some of the scarring means no hair grows there, even if the skin looks normal, so no hipster beard for me, even if I had the genetics.

    Based somewhat on a short story of 1963.

  24. No, They Live was an awesome movie starring WWF’s Rowdy Roddy Piper!

    I was reading a lot of female writers at that point so it might be a female author. I can’t really remember anything else about it.

  26. I kept meaning to bring that stuff up, back when I was employed…

    Good point.

    When I first tried growing hair on face, the women at work were fascinated. It didn’t bother me to have (mostly) pretty ladies touching my face. But after a while….

    I brought it up with my boss in front of her boss. Tactfully, I think. (names changed)

    Uh, Joe Big Boss, it’s really cool the company will let me look like a bum while trying to see if I can grow a beard. (insert speech from big boss of how all Partners are blah blah) But, Joe, it’s not really all that cool to have a few of the other women rubbing their hands on my face while I’m trying to use the time clock. I really really do appreciate the attention, but I also know that if I happen to bump a titty with my elbow by accident there will be all kinds of yelling happening. It’s not like they “want me” as no one has grabbed my crotch. And I want to add one more thing… at my second job I learned “you don’t get your meat where you get your bread” and so there is no way I’m ever dating anyone I work with.

    Boss Joe is at a loss for words. I added that the UPS and FedEx guys think the girl in the Business Center and I are married…. and I’m her Dad’s age. We got along that well.

    Boss Jane is sort of blushing, she’s my age… married and sort of hitting on me.

    I’m really stupid at this stuff.

    The fondling of my crappy beard stopped.

    Oh, but any kind of reviews for raises? Can I do anything right? Even about stuff that I have no control over? And they wonder why I just walked out one day….

I usually shave 2-3 times per week, so there’s just stubble. I usually get about a dozen shaves out of a blade. Can’t grow a real beard, well, “can’t” only because it makes me look like an unkempt criminal. Also, the wife doesn’t much like it.

My son has a heavy beard, and a Harry’s blade lasts him at least 3-weeks, however, he sometimes changes it more often because he forgets when he installed the current one. We but just enough blades at one time to get free shipping and a little discount.

    We both use good ol’ Gillette Foamy for shaving cream, cheapest at Walmart.

    Try a Harry’s Starter Kit Special (https://www.harrys.com/en/us/signup/customize).

    BTW, Harry’s is starting to show up in Target store, they are experimenting with the retail channel.

    As did I for many years. Then my son got me a brush and some shaving cream he got from Amazon. I have never looked back. The stuff from Amazon was OK but I like the stuff from “Art of Shaving” as it smells better and secondly seems to provide a better feel when shaving. YMMV and to each their own.

    The best shave I get is with my trusty Braun Series X. I can closer than a blade without irritation by stretching and going over areas more than once.

    I still carry a Gillette Fusion as backup when I travel. Believe it or not, the best shave I get with a blade is with Walmart Shave Secret oil. You have to keep you face wet, but no irritation. I’ve used different creans (including AoS stuff) and nothing beats it. Four drops massaged in and a splash of water now and then. I didn’t believe it either, but it is the best for me. It’s not like those heavy pre-shave oils AoS recommends. It penetrates and lubricates. Give it a try.

  38. I switched to a Double Edge Razor a decade ago and never looked back. I have indulged myself with an arsenal of Indian, German, English, etc. blade holders as my wimpy peach fuzz submits to a blade of any age. Porasso soap is luxe stuff for me, Alto or Colonel Conk works just as well. ShaveNation supplied the silvertip badger brush. At that rate, I’m stocked well into my 2nd life. 🙂

  39. I shave six days a week. The beard is sparse but grows fast. Except for the goatee. That gets trimmed once a week.
