    This forum is a wealth of information. I frequently find myself looking up the definition of a new word, or refreshing my memory of something historic. It is a place to find the musings of many wise people, and some wise asses.

    Ed Condon to Meatspace

    If the flag is a “direct symbol of terror for our black brothers and sisters.”” then how come the black population of Mississippi is 39% which is the highest of any of the states.

    Must be they are too terrorized to leave.

  • NASCAR mandates sensitivity, unconscious bias training after noose incident

    Ed Condon to Mastador1

    Let’s look at some NASCAR history, shall we?
    This is about Wendell Scott, black driver in NASCAR.
    In 1961, he moved up to the Grand National Series. In the 1963 season, he finished 15th in points, and on December 1 of that year, driving a Chevrolet Bel Air that he purchased from Ned Jarrett, he won a race on the half-mile dirt track at Speedway Park in Jacksonville, Florida—the first (and, to date, only) Grand National event won by an African-American (Darrell Wallace Jr. recently became the second African-American driver in NASCAR’s top 3 series to win with his 2013 Kroger 200 win at Martinsville). Scott passed Richard Petty, who was driving an ailing car, with 25 laps remaining for the win. Scott was not announced as the winner of the race at the time, presumably due to the racist culture of the time. Buck Baker, the second-place driver, was initially declared the winner, but race officials discovered two hours later that Scott had not only won, but was two laps in front of the rest of the field.[9] NASCAR awarded Scott the win two years later, but his family never actually received the trophy he had earned until 2010–47 years after the race, and 20 years after Scott had died.[3][10]

  • NASA wants your help designing future moon toilets

    I like this one, and FYI

    CLEVELAND, Nov. 12 — The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and the management of the Norfolk Southern Corporation have come to an understanding that will change the type of sanitation system currently used on NS locomotives.

    BLE members have complained for years about the NS “dry hopper system,” which has been compared to using nothing more than a bucket lined with a plastic bag for a toilet.

    Looks like this is an improved model with the “noodle” seat and seal.

    My BIL who was a Marine, and later a Boy scout leader, taught me that a hangman’s noose should have 13 loops. Looks like the one pictured is missing 4.

    Let’s look at the state demographics;

    Vermont Demographics

    According to the most recent ACS, the racial composition of Vermont was:

    White: 94.33%
    Two or more races: 1.93%
    Asian: 1.69%
    Black or African American: 1.29%
    Other race: 0.39%
    Native American: 0.34%
    Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander: 0.03%

    But we don’t know how many illegals there are.

    For reparations I think the BLM (Bureau of land management) should give BLM (Black lives matter) members each 40 acres and a mule.
