Tweets vs bombs, my take on N.K. negotiations…

I can see it now..

United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and N.K. Official “X” are having a back channel meeting, in a nondescript building.. 

X is high energy, sitting with impeccable posture…he speaks with a tone of a school teacher to a student..


“Mr Tillerson, we have been at this long time, you are are not the first American Administration ready for talks.. We don’t fear America as today we have more nuclear bombs than most countries in Europe. It is only a matter of time before we perfect our delivery and reentry systems. America dare not to attack otherwise millions of poor South Koreans will die, and maybe even a few hundred thousand Japanese for good measure. (leans in) Our Dear Leader has given me permission to relay the fact his secret plans up til now.. we are only using SK as a hostage, instead of killing them, we will make them watch us destroy Japan and America, they will have the burden of being left alive, and doing very well.. while the world that came to protect them suffer and die.. many South Korean will commit suicide than live with this shame. We want steel, plans and engineers required to build a US Class Aircraft Carrier. This is what Hillary promised us through back channels during the election. Has your dotard not learned this fact? maybe you can use this persuasion on him.. ” – X


…. A long pause of just staring intensely at X in total silence and stillness..


(clears throat) “Let me be as forward as I can be.. I really don’t think you have a choice here.. look, listen.. you guys had a good run with the last administrations, that time is over. If you want to be seen as a nuclear power on the world stage, you got that.. now you can be rest assured we will treat you like one. Unfortunately, my President is convinced niceties, gifts and “assurances” have failed every leader before him, and in fact have only embolden, enabled and accelerated your nuclear program. I can’t tell you want to do, but I can tell you your time is running out. China has cut access to banks, and material. As you already know my President has signed and sealed orders of engagement. We’re ready. You don’t know what our capabilities are today. What you see on TV.. “Hollywood” that shit is 100 years behind what we actually have, and I am not talking stealth bombers, there are some weapon systems so advanced, so lethal other administrations would not even consider them as options… I think Sun Tzu said it best…

Keep your plans as dark and impenetrable as night.. when you strike, fall like a thunder bolt!”

(Tillerson leaves those last words on the air as he squints his eyes at X, after a pause he leans in)

..This President will not hesitate where others have. I am pleading with you.. If there is any room for peace and agreement, bring your concessions forward now or face ..  “Fire and Fury”…. (leans back against his chair)

Then, as if on queue…


X’s phone vibrates and plays a sound as a new tweet arrives

<it’s from President Trump!>… X starts to read it..

… X’s phone vibrates again and plays a sound as another tweet arrives…

<it is again from the President…>

Without having to say a word, Tillerson gives X a serious curl of his mouth, and jab nod.. “See.. I told you so”.

X looks down then up from his phone.. stands, bows in silent acceptance and runs off..

Tillerson noticed X was really freaked out after reading the tweets. Let’s hope they get the message..

We didn’t survive the Cold War with the U.S.S.R. to be destroyed by a punk dictator in a 1950s snow-globe.

CoeLux: Artificial Skylight Creates Real Sunlight

It looks like the sun… but it isn’t. It’s a brand new type of artificial skylight called CoeLux which, for the first time, recreates the scientific process that makes the sky appear blue. It also creates an illusion of depth to make the ‘sun’ appear to be far above. Lux takes an exclusive look.

Perpetual Motion Machine?

Even as a boy, I have always been fascinated with the idea of creating energy. This nagging feeling growing up that there is a magic combination of magnets, springs, pendulums, and gravity, all in a special configuration to create a machine that exists in a balance and can run a very long time.

This machine is a great example of just that idea. Remarkably engineered, it still can not escape the conservation of energy that will eventually bring the magnets to lose their magnetism as well as the friction that will wear away parts. For these reasons, the machine’s motion will eventually come to an end. There is also no evidence the ball can drive a mechanical linkage to generate excess power without giving up a lot of energy. Maybe traversing a tunnel of coils could solve that problem? But I suspect even then, eddy currents in the copper will slow the ball further and ruin the balance.

That said, even with these caveats, it still seems brilliant in its design and wonderful for inspiring further thought.
