    Must be where you ask about a camera obscura.

    I prefer “Clorox Clown” – not original with me, btw. As an alternative, someone elsewhere suggested “Lysol Liar”.

    Maybe he just thinks he’s taking hydroxychloroquine – if the doc was smart, he’d have a dozen pill containers labeled “hydroxychloroquine for President’s use” and fill them with placebos (or maybe even pretty red capsules filled with Clorox or Lysol. That way when doofus barfed all over the Oval Office, they’d already have the sanitizing and cleaning agents necessary for cleaning up the mess).

    I think you mean “implode”. The vacuum is inside rather than outside the thin-skinned thick skull he owns. That means atmospheric pressure from the outside ought to crack the walnut and implode it.

    Totally unrelated to Agent Orange – Nevada state route 375, which runs generally along the north-east side of the Nellis Air Force bombing and gunnery range (on which sits fabled “Area 51”) is officially known as “The Extraterrestrial Highway”.

    There is one small settlement (Rachel) along the road. The major business enterprise there is the “Little A-Le-Inn”, which sells tolerable food and some alien-themed souvenirs. When the state posted signs of the road’s officially-designated name, it also posted speed limit signs in keeping with the general theme – I think they said “Speed Limit Warp 7”, though I can’t be sure because none of them remain.

    The signs tended to become involuntary souvenirs and disappeared pretty quickly (I’d love to have one in my garage). Nevada decided not to replace them because the entire route traverses open range and the state didn’t want to encourage people to experiment with warp speed. And if you think hitting a deer (maybe 200 to 250 pounds) with your car is bad news, try the same thing with a stubborn steer (up to 1,000 pounds) when you’re doing only warp 2.

    I think you erroneously assume Hair Fuhrer can multiply 9 women times one month and get 9 months. He might be able to add 9 plus 1 and get 10, but beyond that he’d have to take off his shoes and start using his toes in addition to his fingers. And “gestating” has too many letters and syllables – the only nine-letter multi-syllabic word I’ve heard recently from him is “Obamagate”, merely another example of his magical thinking.

    Right now you could easily substitute Greg Abbott of Texas and Brian Kemp of Georgia for Doug Ducey – and it won’t be too long before several others join in the “fun”. They all seem to think the coronavirus will magically vanish, like their “chosen one” promised, and seem to think they can simply wish it away.

    If it only were that simple, but if wishes were horses, then beggars would ride. This stuff’s gonna be with us in a big way for at least the next several months (through the November elections) and very likely for long beyond that. It’s gonna play hob with the economy, and that means a substantial portion of the population will suffer – paying the bills, putting food on the table, and just managing to live. But unless we follow CDC guidelines and chart our courses of action based on science and the facts of the situation, a lot more people are gonna die unnecessarily.

    Thanks – excellent read and excellent information presented in plain English by somebody who has the credentials to back up what he wrote.

    Bromage’s information is bazillions of percent better than the unsubstantiated bullshit that pours from Trump’s mouth, such as when he told the VFW in July 2018 “Just remember, what you are seeing and what you are reading is not what’s happening. Just stick with us, don’t believe the crap you see from these people, the fake news.”

    He discovered the virus must be female (it apparently has an affinity for male hormones) and his wife wasn’t in the room when he met the virus and it tried to get cozy with him. Oh My!!!!! Heavens to Murgatroyd!!!!!!!

    A couple of years ago I toured the Bradbury Science Museum in Los Alamos, where they have a small but incredible set of exhibits. Perhaps a third of the space is devoted to the two atomic bombs dropped on Japan to end WW II.

    Little Boy, the name of the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, was cylindrical in shape, and utilized enriched uranium with a “gun-type” detonator. At one end of the bomb was a high-explosive charge that, when detonated, forced a “bullet” or plunger down the cylinder toward the other end of the bomb where the enriched uranium was located. That sudden compression of the enriched uranium yielded a “critical mass” and Hiroshima was left a pile of radioactive rubble. Scientists at Los Alamos knew the device would work because they had successfully tested a similar device at White Sands.

    Fat Man, the name of the bomb that destroyed Nagasaki, was spherical in shape, and utilized plutonium with an “implosion” type detonator consisting of shaped charges. This type detonator was used because the “gun-type” would not produce enough pressure on the plutonium to force critical mass and an explosion. The bomb casing was spherical because the plutonium resided in the center of the bomb and was completely surrounded by high explosives that, when detonated, would release their energy toward the plutonium and that, it was hoped, would be powerful enough to trigger the plutonium’s explosion. A July 1945 test at the Trinity Site verified that the detonator would work, so a month later, Nagasaki was bombed.

    Trivia I also picked up at the museum. Little Boy was named that after President Franklin Roosevelt; Fat Man was named after British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
