Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

A work in progress. Explaining words and phrases that I often use. Noting new and interesting ideas. Discussing certain verbal warning signs. There’s no social justice or political correctness here.

Offsite links open a new window. Underlined links are internal to the site.
Uppercase links go to the lexicon. Script links go to the timetable.

A dashed border and red banner means I don't agree with the defintion
 or that it is a dangerous idea.

hasty generalization

Hasty generalization is an informal fallacy of faulty generalization by reaching an inductive generalization based on insufficient evidence—essentially making a rushed conclusion without considering all of the variables. In statistics, it may involve basing broad conclusions regarding the statistics of a survey from a small sample group that fails to sufficiently represent an entire population. Its opposite fallacy is called slothful induction, or denying a reasonable conclusion of an inductive argument (e.g. "it was just a coincidence").

hate crime    caution

A crime, usually violent, motivated by prejudice or intolerance toward an individual’s national origin, ethnicity, color, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.

A term made up by governments so they can tack on extra punishemnts if you do something to someone of a different race.

Killing is killing, it shouldent matter what race the murderer or the dead guy on the floor is.
Over decades of debate, I've never heard a good reason why a “hate crime” is worse than a regular crime. Theft is theft. Vandalism is vandalism. Assault is assault. Murder is murder.

The only reasons seem to be virtue signaling and increasing the penalty. Then all crimes become hate crimes.

Short for High-Definition Multimedia Interface, it is the first industry-supported uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. It's a single cable and user-friendly connector that replaces the maze of cabling behind the home entertainment center. HDMI provides an interface between any audio/video source, such as a set-top box, DVD player, or A/V receiver and an audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital television (DTV), over a single cable. HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on a single cable. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports 8-channel digital audio with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements. [Source: Adapted from HDMI.org]

HDMI was defined to carry 8 channels, of 192kHz, 24-bit uncompressed audio, which exceeds all current consumer media formats. In addition, HDMI can carry any flavor of compressed audio format such as Dolby or DTS. HDMI has the capacity to support existing high-definition video formats such as 720p, 1080i, and 1080p, along with support of enhanced definition formats like 480p, as well as standard definition formats such as NTSC or PAL.

Adherence to one particular god out of several, especially by a family, tribe, or other group.

  1. the worship of a particular god, as by a family or tribe, without disbelieving in the existence of others.
  2. ascription of supreme divine attributes to whichever one of several gods is addressed at the time.

Bowman considers most forms of white supremacist Odinism as henotheist. In a henotheistic cosmology, many gods are present but only one counts. All the others are mere “window dressing.” He thinks that white supremacist Odinists are for the most part hostile to Paganism, or dismissive of it as lesser or soft.

“White supremacist Odinism may seek shelter under the larger Pagan umbrella,” Bowman cautioned, but “they do not play well with others.”

High Holiday

A cross quarter day, a fire festival and a gateway between the four seasons. On my WebTree path, a three day celebration honoring the gods and marking the midpoint between the solstice and the equinox (or the equinox and the solstice). It begins on sunset on the day before the actual midpoint and lasts until sunset the day after.

Homo astra    the star human

Humanity unchained from just one planet and one place and one star.

From the beginning the stars have plucked our dreams and planted wonder. The stars are still there, inviting us to soar among them.

Long term rules means honor brings advantage. Short term rules mean that honor is a disadvantage.
Honor is a concept widely derided and discarded today. But honor is really nothing more than your personal credit rating. It is a statement of your character, and like credit, honor has leverage. It can move large numbers of people: elevate them, raise their spirits and their expectations of themselves. Honor and Courage and Character are beacons in the darkness; they draw all manner of people toward their light. Most people want to be good, to be brave, to be useful. They just need to be shown the way sometimes. And the only way to create such beacons to light our path is to commit to becoming one yourself.

My name for the study of humanity in all it's manifestations and all of humanity's endevors. I've been studying for years. Here are some of the basics.

Humanity is a colony organism.

People cherish their passions.

Competition breeds progress and encourages honesty.

In the absence of understanding, triviality dominates.

Seek paradox for truth.

Resist dogma for growth.

Beware anyone who offers an absolute.

Yes, there is a mostly finished book.

If I can, I am going to arrange for it's publication after my death, just to really annoy some people.
