Damn Liberals

I was on facebook and read this thing that eric davey posted... thought you guys might enjoy it, i know you will andy..


Democrats think this is a fair distribution of wealth:

50,000 people go to a baseball game; but the game was rained out and a refund was due. The team was about to send out refunds when the Democrats stopped them and suggested that they send out refund amounts based on the democratic interpretation of fairness. After all, if the refunds were made equally to the people who paid for the tickets, most of the money would go to the top 2%.

The Democratic plan says:

People in the $10 seats will get back $15, because they have less money to spend. People in the $15 seats will get back $15, because that's only fair. People in the $25 seats will get back $1, because they already make a lot of money. People in the $50 luxury seats will have to pay another $15, because they have so much to spend. And the people driving by the stadium who couldn't afford to watch the game will get $10 each, even though they didn't pay anything in, because they need the most help

Finally, a slave theme park

This is from another site ROFLMAO:

Michael Jackson’s brother Marlon is developing an amusement park about slavery, which actually makes a lot of sense if you think about it. I'm lying of course. The Guardian UK says...
A museum for the Jackson Five is to be built in Nigeria as part of a $3.4bn luxury resort including concert halls, golf courses, casinos – and a memorial for Africa's former slave trade. The Badagry Historical Resort, located near Badagry's former slave port, will include a memorial, slave history theme park, five-star hotel and Jackson Five museum. The project is supported in part by Marlon Jackson, one of Michael Jackson's brothers. "The Jackson family had been looking for a place to site their memorabilia collection," explained Gary Loster, chief executive of the Motherland Group. "We visited the site of the slave port in Badagry and Marlon turned to me and said: 'Let's put it here, this is right.'"
If I were a black guy I’m not so sure how fun this park would sound. I'd be worried my exit would be 800 miles away and they would sick dogs after me if I tried to leave. On the plus side, I could probably organize a revolt and rape some of the hot white women. Which I was hoping to do anyway.

Empire Total War

After March 3rd this banner will fly in more and more territories and over greater and greater armies with every passing day. Resistance is futile, world dominance is inevitable. Bow to King Mueller and you shall be spared...

I'm going through with making a t-shirt, or t-shirts, depending on whether or not you guys wanna go in on this too. I was thinking Star Wars, but I'm open to suggestions. I have shit to do next week, then after that its winter break for me. I'm taking the week off from work and I'll be home, so I'm going to make and order shirts then. As for the picture above, it would make a cooler poster than t-shirt if you cropped, unless you faded out the edges or something. I might order one of those too lol.

If you think of something that you can't find online, I'm open to doing some photoshop too. Andy will be working and Michelle will be in Atlanta, so I'll have plenty of free time for this lol.

Mass Awareness....

... of a certain Avian Variety.

This has been stuck in my head for at least a week.

Don't lie - you immediately think of SWG when you see the word avian.

Blueberry progress

My blueberry farm progress has been limited by specific needs of the plants themselves to properties with existing plants or promising soil types. I found a decent looking house but i think i could see corn stalks through the snow in the lot behind the house . Also i have also been feeling the effects of the economy working only 40 hour weeks since december which is about a 40% cut in net pay. There is also now signs of this getting better soon as 1st and 2nd welds now take some days off and work only about 30 hours a week. But, crop losses of blueberries in the southern hemisphere total to $5 BILLION this winter due to an extreme drought so the price will be sky high this year. Unfortunately that may or may not be a good thing because i talked to a couple that was thinking of possibly retiring and selling this year (their 15 acre mature patch and small house). I plan on asking them to help me learn a few things and voulenteer to maybe make them more willing sellers.

Mace Windu is a Badass

Also, I want this to be made into a t-shirt. That would be epic. Unfortunately, the only way I've found to order t-shirts that are black w/custom printing is to order them in quantities of 20+, which isn't going to happen lol.

Senior Design

Ok, so I'm gonna make the first post about my senior design project. Not sure who I've told so far, so heres the abstract:

Electronic musical synthesizers exist in a wide variety of forms today, and many have the capability to very accurately reproduce the sounds of their acoustic counterparts. They all exhibit one major fault however; the inability to precisely simulate the mechanical interaction between the user and the instrument. Therefore we were asked to design a haptic feedback system for a keyboard with an adjustable range from a synthesizer to a grand piano. Our design will include both passive and active controls, as well as a MIDI connection to allow for future interfacing with other systems.

We will essentially using a combination of electromagnetic technology (active controller) and springs (passive controls) in order to get force feedback to the user based on velocity and position of the key. Turns out modeling a grand piano isn't as easy as you'd think it is. Pretty much impossible to predict an accurate force feedback of a grand piano since there are so many complex parts (see below). Should be pretty interesting though. We begin experimentation and design conception tomorrow.
