Bloomberg better evacuate NYC and close down all stock exchanges tomorrow, cause when Ben takes the podium at Jackson Hole tomorrow, we are going to have a systemic collapse of global markets.

Ray Nagin called in to advise Mayor Bloomberg on a "Mandatory"



"ah you know the big question I have ah,   the storm is going to hit to the west of us, is that correct?"

"actually the latest track takes it right overhead"

"right overhead? ah so which low lying areas should we be concerned about?"

Well for the people that like to read ZH on Lunch at work this type of content can get the site blocked.

As well if the site is deemed to have adult content in Google searches ZH will not show up until you have parent guard turned off. (note that google has this option enable as a default.) 98% of people searching will not be able to ZH content.

So the benefits of such a image is not outweighed by the fact that it will eventually make ZH harder to find, and be blocked altogether from places of employment.


So use an approiate image...

Aruba-du, ruba-tu, ruba-tu. I was thinking about the curse words and the swear words, the cuss words and the words that you can't say, that you're not supposed to say all the time, [']cause words or people into words want to hear your words. Some guys like to record your words and sell them back to you if they can, (laughter) listen in on the telephone, write down what words you say. A guy who used to be in Washington, knew that his phone was tapped, used to answer, Fuck Hoover, yes, go ahead. (laughter) Okay, I was thinking one night about the words you couldn't say on the public, ah, airwaves, um, the ones you definitely wouldn't say, ever, [']cause I heard a lady say bitch one night on television, and it was cool like she was talking about, you know, ah, well, the bitch is the first one to notice that in the litter Johnie right (murmur) Right. And, uh, bastard you can say, and hell and damn so I have to figure out which ones you couldn't and ever and it came down to seven but the list is open to amendment, and in fact, has been changed, uh, by now, ha, a lot of people pointed things out to me, and I noticed some myself. The original seven words were, shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, and tits. Those are the ones that will curve your spine, grow hair on your hands and (laughter) maybe, even bring us, God help us, peace without honor (laughter) um, and a bourbon. (laughter) And now the first thing that we noticed was that word fuck was really repeated in there because the word motherfucker is a compound word and it's another form of the word fuck. (laughter) You want to be a purist it doesn't really--it can't be on the list of basic words. Also, cocksucker is a compound word and neither half of that is really dirty. The word--the half sucker that's merely suggestive (laughter) and the word cock is a half-way dirty word, 50% dirty--dirty half the time, depending on what you mean by it. (laughter) Uh, remember when you first heard it, like in 6th grade, you used to giggle. And the cock crowed three times, heh (laughter) the cock--three times. It's in the Bible, cock in the Bible. (laughter) And the first time you heard about a cock-fight, remember--What? Huh? naw. It ain't that, are you stupid? man. (laughter, clapping) It's chickens, you know, (laughter) Then you have the four letter words from the old Angle-Saxon fame. Uh, shit and fuck. The word shit, uh, is an interesting kind of word in that the middle class has never really accepted it and approved it. They use it like, crazy but it's not really okay. It's still a rude, dirty, old kind of gushy word. (laughter) They don't like that, but they say it, like, they say it like, a lady now in a middle-class home, you'll hear most of the time she says it as an expletive, you know, it's out of her mouth before she knows. She says, Oh shit oh shit, (laughter) oh shit. If she drops something, Oh, the shit hurt the broccoli. Shit. Thank you. (footsteps fading away) (papers ruffling)

NYC and NJ - a lot of the communications infrastructure is below street level and did not exist the last time a really large storm surge hit.

In 1921 a 13 foot surge flooded all of lower Manhattan.

Way too much for the pumping system.

Forget Nerd humor BtG, think about the temporal connect between the rash of 6 (and beyond) sigma events and the much delayed start of the LHC. i know the whole causality does not imply etc.... but it is quite stunning.

Especially large earth/weather events. And, because we live in a fractal world, all th eother 6 sigma stuff in terms of wars and collapses and the like. The LHC is definitely part of th emix. Never befre handled/generated energies, failing systems..... quite the recepie for disaster.

Come on Flak, that is just weak.

You should understand concentration vs. diffusion in terms of Energy and it's impact/controllability. Or are you saying yellowcake in the ground is the same thing as it's refiined form in the reactor?

Highest energy density collider is RHIC at Brookhaven.... the goal of which is to recreate and study the quark-gluon plasma....

At max luminosity, the LHC will have about ~25 collisions every 26 ns (I may be off slightly, been a while since I did any LHC related stuff)... effective maximum CoM energy between consituents is about 10 TeV (and those will be very rare

Pinched from Wiki:

The first observation of a cosmic ray with an energy exceeding 1.0×1020 eV (~15 J) was made by John Linsley and Livio Scarsi at the Volcano Ranch experiment in New Mexico in 1962.[1][2]

Cosmic rays with even higher energies have since been observed. Among them was the Oh-My-God particle observed on the evening of 15 October 1991 over Dugway Proving Ground, Utah. Its observation was a shock to astrophysicists, who estimated its energy to be approximately 3×1020 eV[3](50 joules)—in other words, a subatomic particle with kinetic energy equal to that of a baseball (142 g or 5 oz) traveling at 100 km/h (60 mph). It was most probably a proton with a speed very close to the speed of light, so close, in fact, [(1 ? 5×10?24) × c], that in a year-long race between light and the cosmic ray, the ray would fall behind only 46 nanometers (5×10?24light-years), or 0.15 femtoseconds (1.5×10?16 s).[4]

The energy of this particle is some 40 million times that of the highest energy protons that can currently be produced in any particle accelerator. However only a small fraction of this energy would be available for an interaction with a proton or neutron on Earth, with most of the energy remaining in the form of kinetic energy of the products of the interaction. The effective energy available for such a collision is the square root of double the product of the particle's energy and the mass energy of the proton, which for this particle gives 7.5×1014 eV, roughly 50 times the collision energy of the Large Hadron Collider.

Since the first observation, by the University of Utah's Fly's Eye Cosmic Ray Detector, at least fifteen similar events have been recorded, confirming the phenomenon. These very high energy cosmic rays are very rare; the energy of most cosmic rays is between 10 MeV and 10 GeV 

As an aside, the name Fly's Eye made me want to build an experiment to do a precision measurement (1 part in 10^5) of pion beta decay.... the name would be Gnat's Ass.

yes,.. discovery of the Higgs Boson occurs in low probability world history branches.  So each time the Large Hadron Collider searches for the discovery of it @ higher energy levels, it phases (wave function collapse) our world time-lines to these low probability world timelines. 


And it is in these timelines where greater 6 sigma events occur more frequently.  rare events like an earthquake in Virginia.  A hurricane dissemating NYC.  end of EMU.
