Random, and yet a long time coming

earbuds-featured

Well, in a way this is somewhat random. And yet, it has been a long time coming I suppose. In recent years (mostly the last year and a half), I have been getting a lot of my news from alternative sources like, youtube, podcasts, and other none-mainstream news outlets. As a result, I have been listening to a few podcasts at work. And I have decided that perhaps this is something I could get into doing.

I am officially going to be starting a podcast.

The thing that finally tipped me over the edge and prompted me to take the leap has been a few things. One, a large percentage of what I post on this site is perspective based outlooks on current events in either the space and science arena or the geopolitical world. I tend to lean toward having a view based on my stance as a Christian. With that, the other thing that prompted this decision is the fact that a few major things happened in the science world this last week that I was surprised to find no one else touching on in the alternative outlets.

Two examples of what I am talking about would be the earth footage licensure of 1992, and the AADHAR refutation update.

With that, the podcast will mostly be a reflective podcast that highlights current events in the world from the perspective of an Enclosed Cosmology, Young Earth Creationist, Protestant Christian that prefers the KJV bible. Obviously, the podcast will be called “I Must be Ignorant”, or something to that effect.

After all, it is a fitting title, considering the host… right?

I am not sure when this thing will take off or how often I will post to it, but currently the goal would be for it to become a biweekly podcast on current events. I had a friend from church line me out with the right editing software along with mic and accessories. At this point I am just waiting on the mic and stuff to come in the mail. In the meantime I plan to hash out an intro among other things.

 

Things happening at the shop in 2018

Today the store reached and exceeded 4,500 sales. That’s not bad considering the etsy store is more of a side hobby than something that I actually put a lot of time into. With that, I have made some big decisions regarding the store that are going to affect what happens with it through the rest of 2018. With that, I thought I would post a little update about it.

For the rest of the 2018 year (another 8 months), I plan to refrain from restocking my sold out items. And in turn, flush out a lot of my inventory. The reason for this is simple. I have decided to become a lot more selective about what type of items I put on the store. I am considering getting away from traditional pin buttons and venturing into enamel pins. I am also considering doing an entire line of bible story themed patches (making those items the primary theme of the store). But before I take the store into an entirely new direction in 2019, I need to flush out a lot of the existing inventory without just outright giving it away like I did last year with my horror movie patches.

Illegal to post footage of earth from space?

According to SpaceX, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently told the company to apply for a license for its cameras equipped to the rocket. A federal law passed in 1992 requires commercial spacecraft taking images or video of Earth to have this license, but it’s an unusual demand considering SpaceX and other private space companies have already streamed footage of Earth from orbit a number of times before. Plus, the NOAA is typically preoccupied with studying the climate rather than monitoring commercial satellites. So what gives? One theory is that SpaceX’s high-profile launch of “Starman” in CEO Elon Musk’s Tesla this February could have caught the NOAA’s eye.

You know… I can’t help but wonder. Could it be in the slightest, a possibility that stricter regulation of such footage may be a result of discrepancies between everyone out there posting footage?

You know, like the footage shown above that suggests one entire half of the earth contains zero land. Or…

What about this above footage that shows one entire half of the earth containing zero water? It could just be ignorant ol’ me, but I tend to side with the possibility that these discrepancies are beginning to become a little bit of a problem for the one percent.

Got’a lay down them regulations… you know.

2 Peter 3:5 – For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water.

Who are we kidding, right? I’m ignorant.

According to actual “live commercial footage“,  the following is a closer representation of what our planet actually looks like.

The one percent better start regulating who can share footage if they intend to keep the long standing status quo alive.

China’s First Space Station Is Dying

Well, it’s official. This junk is legit. But, don’t take my word for it. CNN covered it for us. Regardless of what they had to say I want to point out just a few simple little things.

Number one: they lost contact with this thing in 2016

And yet, magically… just one day before it is supposed to crash they lock on to it with such precision that they capture its re-entry on camera?

yep

Number two: the graphics are so good, it has to be real.

The graphics are so good, they didn’t even bother adding solar panels to this thing. It’s pretty much the most majestic thing I’ve ever seen.

Number three: climate change – global warming advocates need not apply.

Rocket Launches Damage Ozone Layer, Study Says. Plumes from rocket launches could be the world’s next worrisome emissions, according to a new study that says solid-fuel rockets damage the ozone layer, allowing more harmful solar rays to reach Earth.

Now, when I was a kid the ozone layer was a pretty heavy topic. It was a big factor in the “climate debate“.

With that said, I have a questions regarding this third thing. Why aren’t any of these radical eco-friendly protesters attacking NASA, ESA, or SpaceX? Seems like they would be a relatively large player in the current scheme of things, if you ask me.

Then again, it could just be a scheme.

You’re going to march against Trump, but not against the people that are physically punching holes in the very thing that keeps radiation out?

Seems legit, people. Seems legit.

In conclusion, space is real. I know this because of three things. One, we conveniently find what we can’t find when it’s convenient (if that makes sense). Two, reenactments are very convincing. And three, what Trump inks with a pin is destroying out oxygen… not the giant quarterly hole punch NASA and its sister companies make on the regular.

Whatever… rant over.

Went to the Zoo

Well, now that I have a legit camera I guess that makes me a professional photographer. Here are my wildlife shots from the day at the zoo. Clearly, I should be getting a call from National Geographic any day now… what with these mad wild life photography skills I’ve got.

But seriously though, the wife suggested I bring the camera along. I took a lot of photos. These are merely the ones that I felt were worth sharing. Unlike my previous photos posted on the site, these photos did get a minor edit in photoshop. I didn’t do much. Just tweaked the exposure and things like that. I think they turned out pretty good considering I’m no true photographer.
