CONSPIRACY? A Hydrogen Economy Threatens The Battery EV Infrastructure

The UK Register story (read it here) amplifies how vested interests are "putting in the fix" to kill research into producing hydrogen as an alternative energy source. But read between the lines:

One of the big problems with hydrogen as a green fuel is that it is not green under current production methods. Nearly all industrial hydrogen gas is extracted from natural gas, a process which requires energy, usually from fossil fuels, and one which produces further greenhouse gasses as a byproduct. While the prospect of electrolyzing hydrogen from water using renewable energy is appealing, the approach has yet to be scaled.

What a bunch of unadulterated crap. The politicians are being well and truly bought off by the battery investors. There is too much capital invested to watch it thrown away. Give me a Tesla solar-panel roof on my home and a hydrogen compressor to pack cracked water into hydrogen and oxygen, and I'll get a cheap retrofit for my internal combustion engine. How's that for scale, you paid-off politicians?

European Union Makes Good Case For Cyberprivateering


The UK Register makes a good case for letting the hounds of hell loose on Russia (read the story here). Too bad they didn't go far enough. Check out my legal justification for cyberprivateering (read it here).

Windows, The Most Hacked System On The Planet


The UK Register (read the story here) reports once again that Microsoft's Windows has had vulnerabilities that have been exploited by The Bad Guys. Oh, but here's a fix now that the cows are out of the barn door. Once again, POWER SHELL left a crack in the door.

Hell, I only used air-gapped Windows systems, one of which runs my CompuTrainer bicycle exercise system.

How I Saved My Old Dog's Life


If you're reading this, you probably spend a lot of time on your computer, and your constant companion is probably a dog or a cat. So listen up.

A month ago, my nearly 16-year-old dog Chenoa lost the use of her hind legs, and my vet said X-rays showed a herniated disk in her spine. She yelped in pain as she tried to walk, and I faced putting her down to end her misery. So I called my sports chiropractor (a few thousand miles a year on my bike made him my personal lifesaver) and asked if he'd had any success with animals. Surprisingly, he had. With both dogs and cats! 

Since Utah is only one of five states that allow chiropractors to work on animals without direct supervision of a vet, I took her in. He did miracles. Chenoa walked immediately. In four subsequent visits, she's again behaving like a little puppy, running around and going for half-mile walks with me. Turns out, this breed (a Bichon-Shih Tzu mix) is prone to late-life spine problems. 

I don't know how much longer I'll have my little buddy, but I thank both my supportive vet and a gifted chiro for adding to my time with Chenoa. So if you have an aging companion with similar problems, see if your vet will recommend a chiropractor. My own vet, realizing that she was likely at the end of her life, said, "It couldn't hurt."

I'll let you know how long we've extended my little dog's life.

Taman Shud.

Boo! Let The Party Begin.


Happy Halloween from Rick & Rita (aka Gomez and Morticia)

My attitude is that the holidays begin with Halloween. With the election in nine days, may I suggest we are entering some scary times?

A $10-million Bounty on Iranian Hackers Really Makes the Case for Legalizing Cyber Privateers


In yesterday's UK Register (read the story here), the U.S. Government has put a $10-million bounty on three Iranian hackers. Stupid. The chances of getting these guys out of Iran are exactly zero. So why not declare open season on all the bad guys worldwide, and get them (and their governments) where it hurts?

The full mechanics and legal justification are all laid out in the panel on the right.

Just saying.

How Huawei Could Turn Around Their Slump in 30 Days


Almost 9 years ago, I proposed the solution to Huawei's horrendous credibility problem in my blog (click here). My headline: "Who you gonna' believe, Huawei or your lying eyes?" That they've done nothing to disprove their culpability as an information funnel for Beijing is simple proof that they are bad guys.

BTW, the above headline was taken from yesterday's UK REGISTER (click here to read the whole article).

My simple one-line net-net: Offer a $1-million bounty on anyone who can find a security hole in their offerings, and have all claims on that money go through a trusted third-party insurer.

Come on, guys! This ain't rocket science.

Congratulations Elon Musk: SPACEX Is Definitely Your Brand

 A bunch of SpaceX employees wanted the SpaceX "brand" to be separate from Elon Musk. They said he embarrassed them. What morons! He justifiably fired them. You don't let the tail wag the dog. Their inflated sense of worth is akin to presidential speech writer Patrick Buchanan actually thinking he could run for president. He was a flaming speech writer for crying out loud!

Yo, morons of the world. Free speech can't cover for insubordination. I've heard some ringside pundits liken Elon Musk to Howard Hughes. Baloney! Mr. Musk, my church has finally learned that you don't let your enemies define you. The moniker "Mormon" was invented by our enemies. You're not anything like Howard Hughes. You've thrown Tesla patents into the public domain because you're out to save the world.

Godspeed, you magnificent SOB. Godspeed.

Hacking the Mind of the Masses (or HOW I TURNED $2 MILLION INTO HALF-A-BILLION DOLLARS)


How does an advertising "hired gun" keep his pulse on the public state of mind? My own answer to that question is to play the Hollywood Stock Exchange every day. You can join free, and they give you $2 million in funny money, with which you bet on which movies will win and which will lose. Several years ago I started playing this game, and as of today my $2 million has turned into $500,242,065.38.

Have I guess wrong a few times? Sure. COVID hit and betting on theatre box office receipts went into the toilet. But bless Tom Cruise and Top Gun Maverick for delaying their theatrical release and refusing to go to HBO. I made $30 million in the last two weeks just on Mr. Cruise, who thanked theatre goers for seeing his movie in theaters.

Oh yeah. I'm betting big on Elvis which is about to open.

What have I learned? Most importantly, my novel-writing instincts are still…heh heh…on the money. My first novel, Destroying Angel, would make a blockbuster movie. So would my second novel, Daddy's Little Felons. Check you the book links to the left. You can get Kindle versions for less than $3. And my newly written novel (for which I'm still trying to find a literary agent), The Last Will and Testament of Harley Davidson…and His Dog, IMHO will be a killer property for a studio that wants leading edge science fiction to rock the world. 

Yeah, all of us self-proclaimed ad geniuses are closet novelists. One of these days I'll crack…THE HOLLYWOOD CODE. Unless I run out of time and get turned into a hood ornament on a semi truck as I ride my bicycle the several thousand miles a year going to and from my mountain home in The Pirate Cottage.

Best to you all.

"Abandon All Hope, Those Who Enter"

Albert Einstein did what he called "thought experiments" that resulted in his Theory of Relativity. I have just finished editing the 8th draft of a sci-fi novel, my own Einsteinian thought experiment. Every one of the sci-fi novels I've read paints alien invaders as bloodthirsty and technologically superior. I don't buy that. In fact, they're probably rank amateurs compared to us. Dante's inscription on the gates of Hell may well be the toe tag on our little piece of galactic real estate: "Abandon all hope, those who enter."

Et tu, Vladimir.

Yo Elon Musk! Here's a Ukraine Idea.


You've got the rocket. You've got the Tesla. How about dropping one through the roof of the Kremlin?

Okay, now that I've calmed down a little, maybe you should soft-land a rocket in Lenin Square with a Tesla payload. Once it safely lands (and doesn't get shot down by Vlad's air defense system), have a press conference where you and Ellison suggest Putin drive this car, with your compliments, into…retirement.

Just a thought.

Here's Why INTERNET 3.0 is a Con Job by the Blockchain Morons: It's a Crook's Best Friend!

A bunch of VCs have actually been conned into investing in Blockchain technology companies, who have the brilliant idea that it can somehow 

monetize morons

About twice a year, I get porn blackmail from somebody claiming they have gotten into my computer and have videos of me "pleasuring myself" on a porn site. Since January 10, they've sent me the same email telling me I have "two days" to pay the bitcoin equivalent of $1370 USD or they will send the video to all my contacts. Sheesh. Since I have never visited a porn site, nor do I engage in self-stimulation. I just put a macro in my email system to route any such email into my junk folder.

I hereby invite our "de-nutted" authorities to swoop down on the owner of this bitcoin wallet:  1JfnsTBvRQYNvzxYFTQBtEUgojmPy2vd6F

Of course, that'll never happen, because the FBI can't find its ass with both hands. Ditto for the NSA and CIA. Even with the sniffing facility the NSA has established in Bluffdale, Utah! 

How about somebody out there who really knows what they're doing find the owner of the above-referenced bitcoin wallet and do some Van Gogh cosmetic surgery on him? Then send me a video of his decapitated ear, and I'll feature it on this blog

Sincerely yours,

The Destroying Angel

Duh, You Auditors of Public Companies…Pay Attention!

 Back when Oracle stock was over 100, I predicted the zero-day would have far-reaching consequences. I didn't think it would take this long for the slide to start. IMHO, you ain't seen nothin' yet.
