I've been thinking of a new time zone thing.  Instead of 24 simultaneous times around the world, and indeed it will become quaint after a few centuries in outer space.  Have one time, like Unix time, say at some leap second, at some point in space, where Greenwich, England is, starts the New Universal Time.  (and place)  New Universal Linear Spacetime,

oh,

and then,

Everybody has their own local meridian time.  Your cell phone tells you what that is, all based on NULS, So, for instance if it is important to you to eat lunch at noon, for instance, your noon will be like, right where you are, man. not the same as 1/24 of the planet east of you.

That does sound simpler.

I was just kidding about Tuesday not starting until 8:45.  It starts at Midnight in an array of timezones, one hour or so apart, so Tuesday lasts about 48 hours, with it really being Tuesday everywhere in the world in the middle part.

And you could sell a metric buttload of new products, clocks, Local Meridian Cookbooks.

When did your water come back on?
 
2022-01-25 9:22:07 PM  

IronTom: When did your water come back on?


Well, it turns out they had to replace the pump, which is 200' down in the ground. $3000.

And then, I had to go through a multi-day process of purging the system before I could turn on the water to the house proper. So, I run the water for 15 minutes, then turn if off for 15 minutes. All. DayS. Long. Every now and then, I had to fill a bucket with the water and then wait for it to settle and then slowly pour it off and look for minute iron particles (looks like black sand), which would wreak havoc if allow into the house. I do have a rather hardcore filtration system, but I didn't want to overwhelm it. So, I didn't turn the water on to the house until Sunday.

But wait! There's more!

As part of the process of replacing the pump, they send down chlorine pellets to kill off any introduced bacteria. This can take a week to leave the system, so still on bottled water.

But! Working showers and toilets make up for it.

Also, it seems that BoA has decided in my favor in my fraud case against the Evil Computer Desk people.

So life is returning to normal now.  I'm really glad about the victory over the Evil Computer Desk people.

You have a pump 200' down into the ground.  What else do you have 200' down into the ground?  Mmm?  Templar artifacts?

If everyone took that one hour to watch the first episode of "Cosmos," the world would be a better place.

So, I finished 100% of the Ecmo song, time aligning the 7-part vocals for the 100 bars, and put it in the standard location.  There are a few things to update, then check for any highly-out-of-pitch notes, then add in the big bass drum, and gong, maybe more guitar, and then mix it, so that it all balances, or Orffs, as the case may be.

Oh, wouldn't that be awesome?  Yes!!!  So when we kick off the LUFS or whatever it is, NULS, We all fly to Greenwich, since if people are ever going to figure out how to go back in time, you know that they would go back to 0:000 NULS, which takes place at Greenwich England at the next leapsecond, June 30, 2022.

It is not an arbitrary time.  There may be some tomfoolery with Daylight Savings time, but that should be able to be avoided.  Hey, the next fixation point for the next 10,000 years.  The time and place where the next Tuesday will take place is pre-ordained, to a high likelihood.   A Tuesday is not an event.  It is a 45-hour fluent with fade-ins and fade-outs.

Tuesday is a 'fluent'  a period of time.

The world is not all Tuesday except for one hour.

The percentage of the world that is Tuesday is shown on the following graph.  Tuesday is a fuzzy concept.

https://bigthink.com/13-8/einstein-bohr-weirdness-quantum-mechanics


It seems like a different take on Schrödinger's cat, where you don't know what is going on in the cat box.  It seems like if there was a camera in the cat box, then there would be essentially no paradox, but maybe that's not the point.  Maybe they were unable to use the actual position of the electron mist and decided to create a level of smallness or speed, such that it is turtles all the way down from there, and that turtle is probability theory.

I'm drinking a hard cider that I brewed over the holidays.  It is appley, and pretty good, and I tried to order more but Mr.; Beer no longer sells hard cider brewing refills.  So I wanted to check the alcohol level, with a hydrometer, and went to one of those brew stores, and wound up getting a new bucket to brew hard cider in, and some other company has the apple concentrate now.  I love learning new things.  Mr. Beer was a good introduction, and this latest brew is a fine swan song to the end of an era, of me brewing hard cider with Mr. Beer.

It is a great time, like before we got any of the pictures back from Voyager, or like landing on the Moon.  A great happening in space is in the offing, and we can only guess what it will look like.  I would like to zoom in on planets in the Horsehead Nebula: (without those Skylink satellites photobombing it).
