Out of the Blue

I made my ribs yesterday, following my makeshift plans. They came out fine, though things didn't go exactly as planned. Smoking on a kamado-style grill is like driving a race car with tremendous acceleration and crappy brakes, and things got a lot hotter than I planned. This is not unusual for me, it was just worse this time, as I usually get it to settle in at around 250F, in spite of shooting for 225F, but that's workable. Yesterday the grill was determined to stay at 300F, and no amount of damping our dousing helped. I wish I could blame this on multitasking while I worked, but as I say, this is a pretty hands-off process, and it wouldn't have played out much differently on a weekend. Anyway, I just cut down the cook time and they came out fine. They just can't really be called barbeque, as they were more grilled than smoked.

well, first with all my qualifiers. basically first earth-sun facsimile they've found. shame we didn't have the luck to find it around proxima centauri - the webb could probably get a decent image of it if it was.

Yup. Though it's not the first. More like the 200th. Really underwhelmed by the news. Sure it's a rocky planet like Earth, sure it's right smack in the middle of the goldilocks zone but it's diameter is 1.6 times that of earth, and its mass is like 6 times that of earth. The only new thing compared to the hundreds of other exoplanets they found is that it's star is very, very similar to the Sun. In fact it could almost be a twin, although it's about a billion years or so older. Oh yeah, it's 1500 lightyears away, so no way their new James Webb telescope mission will be able to detect whether there is water or oxygen in it's atmosphere....

I'm going to be in Seoul throughout August; if anyone from the Blue's community needs anything from there get in touch and we can look into it.

I love a good conspiracy when I see one, but the moon landing stuff is not really that convincing. The misquoted JFK speech about communism isn't a good place to start either.

If you are talking about my post, I am not referencing the communism speech. I'm talking the secret society and the importance of self inspection and the media.

Well you know the gov't makes us. They get caught lying, then they seal records. Who the fuck knows what is going on in truth? I know JFK said in public to congress about cults and corruption exist and they need to be exposed and overcome, if anyone will know it will be the Prez and he told us square. He ends up dead.

Once again, more NASA bullshit as usual. Anything to fill the coffers, right? Earth 2.0? And they have zero idea if it even has water. Oh yeah, and don't let the fact that its 1400 light years away make any difference. That at best possible speed it would take us 26 million years to get there.

They've rec'd a digital transmission from a planet of a being standing in front of 1000's of other like beings, which seems that the one being is verbally communicating to the rest of them while pointing one of their extremities in the air.

Did you just invoke Godwin's law, without invoking Godwin's law? If you know what I mean

Perhaps. This wasn't an original thought of mine? lol

Once again, idiot spectators standing WAY TOO FUCKING CLOSE to an automotive event with no safety rails whatsoever.

Get. The Fuck. Back.

That guy probably drove by at about 150mph or so, airborne and sideways most of the time. Zero chance for them to live if he lost control in the slightest.

Shit like this makes me curious what the number of spectator deaths is like per year for rally type events...I'd think it'd would be way higher than is publicly known.

Blue, I had to move my smoker out of the sun last summer... maybe that can help you too. In the sun it was sitting at 150+ degrees while off on a sunny afternoon and that made keeping the temp low nearly impossible. It was probably because my smoker is a cheap POS but... worth a shot.

Maybe they found something very high on the Earth Similarity Index, that would be interesting. I'm reading Aurora by Kim Stanley Robinson right now, its about a generation ship settling earthlike planets in the future. Great book so far, highly recommended.
