Out of the Blue

MrsBlue and I are now in the land of 14,000 lakes. There were no setbacks or issues, but with a couple of hours laid-over in Detroit this was basically an all day journey. But as I say, it went pretty smoothly, and we arrived safe and sound, so it all worked out fine. We're still rushing about, as the funeral is pretty early today. There are other obligations lined up after that, this may well be another one-update day, but I expect things to be much more normal by tomorrow.

Oh, the Boeing chief will admit that they made mistakes. How fucking magnanimous of you, asswipe!

You should be in jail for the rest of your life at the least, with 346 murder charges on your fucking ass.

He'll pledge that they'll do better going forward... Hang this asshole.

We thought unmitigated greed would keep those planes in the air. Our engineers now tell us it's not a structurally, electrically or educationally reliable material. Our thoughts and prays are with those brave volunteers who made this discovery possible, and we promise to use less of this hazardous material so long as we think we're being watched.

The 737 Max will be allowed to fly again in the US. It isn't something I agree with, but I'd truly be shocked if it didn't happen. I'm far less certain about its fate outside the US. Other regulating bodies might actually be willing to stand up and say it is a fundamentally flawed aircraft and will not be allowed to fly in their jurisdictions. Only time will tell...

Never ceases to amaze me how whirlwind fast funerals occur. It's like by the time you're feeling the full impact of the shock the viewing is that day then the funeral the following. For something so heavily ritualistic and important you'd think there would be much more time involved. It's like let's just get this done and out of the way ASAP.

I'd really like to get to Varanasi one of these days.

The Pyres of Varanasi: Breaking the Cycle of Death and Rebirth

When you step off a wooden boat onto the banks of the burning ghat in the oldest of India’s cities and you weave through a maze of funeral pyres hissing, steaming, and spitting orange embers into an inky night and you feel the metronome clang of bells vibrating inside your chest and a wave of furnace-like heat consuming everything in its reach, you realize how removed you truly are from the ritual of death.

And yet it wasn't all that long ago we deeply connected to it. I've always felt this is a major reason why society is so off kilter these days.

If 14,000 lakes is the land of 10,000 lakes, welcome and condolences. If you need a tour of Surly Brewing while you're in town, let me know.

It is the land of 10,000 lakes. My reference dates back to the first trip we took I mentioned. At the time I mistakenly called it the land of a thousand lakes, an error I recently heard repeated by the announcer at a Vikings game. Someone here corrected me, and, amazed that there could be 10,000 lakes in one state, I read about it, learning that this is understated, and that Minnesota actually has more than 14,000 lakes. In fact, the article I saw when I just Googled this for verification says there are more than 15,000 lakes here, so they must have had a recount.

And thank you for the offer, but our plate (growler?) here is just too full.

According to Google, Alaska has more than 3 million.

It's also our largest state, so I suppose it makes some sense

What, do they count the puddles at the side of the road when the snow melts???
