Harmonium vs. bacon

Two whole different topics. Analogies.

Take a look at David Forde’s post at https://mander-organs-forum.invisionzone.com/topic/496-21st-century-barker-lever-replacement/ It says “Horrible harmonium type feel to the action.”

Another message made public on the subject ”inflate-to-play and exhaust-to -play” was in response to William Baker. I will get the link later. Here’s a quote from it:

All the actions described here had far better response, reliability and longevity than even the best of the equivalent German systems, all of which are rather harmonium-like to play

Could say the same for the taste of bacon. Grilling and smoking with an unclean LPG or CNG flame and/or with hardwood can result in an awful bacon-like taste (c.f. “horrible harmonium-like feel”), as can overcooking sausage.

Bacon-like taste is as undesirable in cooked meat as harmonium touch is in tracker organs, and a harmonium-like touch is as undesirable in tracker organs as a bacon-like taste is in meat.

Europe does it better

What Europe does better.

Parliamentary government vs. Presidential system. Also Europe uses metric, America uses U.S. Customary units which are similar to the traditional Imperial units.

As for vehicles, Europe has better sports cars and racing cars. From Lamborghini to Bugatti, and even Audi and Porsche.

America however has better trucks from Mack, Peterbilt, and Freightliner semi-trucks to monster machines like Caterpillar excavators and large Terex dump trucks.

America also has a great aircraft carrier fleet, not to mention heavy bombers like the B-52.

Japan also has great cars.

As for music, Europe definitely does it better, because it has more EDM from electro house to trance to Eurodance. Europe even does it better with a post-industrial genre called aggrotech. Germany does especially well with electronic music from electro-industrial and aggrotech to power noise to trance, electro house, and Eurodance. Dutch is stronger with EDM. America on the other hand is saturated with pop, rock, hip hop, and even country, and also has much big room and bass. Europe is also a home of many great classical composers, from Bach to Handel to Haydn to Beethoven to Mahler. America and the UK however do better with rock (both classical and modern) and heavy metal. Edit: I forgot to mention that America has great marching band and military band music.

Ridiculous subscription pop-ups

Why they shouldn’t load the full content to the client if it’s reserved for paid subscribers. lt should be kept down on the server, and not indexed by Google.

http://www.thediapason.com – “This content is reserved for paid subscribers. Please provide us with the information below to unlock this.” Why does the full content show then to be blocked by a pop-up?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk – “Save over 85% on a Digital Subscription and stay jolly well informed this festive season. Cancel anytime. Act now – offer ends 29 December 2021.” – why isn’t there an X button? Why isn’t there an option to “I’ll try later” or “no thanks, just continue to the ?

National Geographic – “Enter your email to continue,” “Science is more important than ever – stay informed,” “Yes! I would like to receive updates, special offers, and other information from National Geographic and The Walt Disney Family of Companies. By creating an account, I agree to the Terms of Use and acknowledge that I have read the Privacy Policy and California Privacy Notice.” why do I have to subscribe and receive updates in order to view content? There really should be an option to “I’ll try later” or an X button or “no thanks, just continue to the site.”

And don’t forget TechTarget.com. I need a corporate email address to view some of the content. For a reason I think DOES concern me, I can’t use a personal email address. Is it intended only for corporate users?

One more: The Atlantic, with a “What happens next?”

All of the above show full content, then to either disappear or be blurred or be blocked by a pop-up. Why? In the former case, why isn’t it like independent.co.uk in which “I’ll try later” In the latter case, why isn’t there an X button or “I’ll try later” or “No thanks, just continue to the site? Don’t those sites know that people can CTRL-A and then CTRL-C the entire article and then paste it onto notepad or email? Why don’t they keep the reserved content down on the server and ONLY load it to the client when the client is subscribed? And why is some of the reserved content indexed by Google

Re-pronouncing words, and more pronunciation conundra

Counterintuitive pronunciations as well as how words should REALLY be pronounced.

Yucky should be yuʀ̥y, with a voiceless uvular trill. What’s more yuʀ̥y than muʀ̥? Not Voiceless uvular fricative. Not ꭓ. I know, the voiceless uvular trill symbol looks like an R. The ck could be a voiceless uvular affricate.

Thank you so fiʀ̥en much! I’m censoring the four-letter word.

Voiceless velar affricate for the ch in Greek derived words. Cark͡xarodon and others with a hard ch. Cxords. Cxoreography.

Good idea huh?

Braʜiosaurus – with voiceless pharyngeal/epiglottal trill. Deinosuʜus (daɪnəˈsjuːʜəs)… I don’t think there is such a sound in Greek.

Guess the letter K is redundant. That’s why it’s not in Spanish, Italian, French, or Gaelic. As if, since there’s already a C, don’t need another letter for the same sound. Did the letter K originate in an old Germanic alphabet and get borrowed by the Roman alphabet? But the ch in Latin and Greek derived words – isn’t the H redundant in Deinosuchus and Choreography? Isn’t the H pointless? Sure, in Brachiosaurus, the H blocks the i from palatalizing/softening the C. In Italian, the H doesn’t palatalize the C. Instead, it BLOCKS the E or I FROM palatalizing/softening the C.

Definition of redundant: duplicate or unnecessary.

One more: Why isn’t elasmobranch pronounced elasmobrantʃ? Why is it elasmobronks and not elasmobrantʃes? It contains the English word branch. Pronouncing elasmobranch the way it’s said to be pronounced is like saying “tree bronk” or ”tree brahnk.” What? Elasmobranch isn’t even related to the English word branch? Convergent evolution…

I deleted a post that was blasphemy

I deleted a post that I believe should be removed. I don’t care about posting schedule in this case.

It had a very harsh stance on God and the Bible.

The following Jehovah’s Witnesses sites even link to it.

There must be more than life on Earth. In Beauty and the Beast, Belle says ”there must be more than this provincial life” in a song. But in real life, I think there must be more than this Earthly life. There must be more than humanity. Angels don’t cut it. There must be more to god’s creation than revealed or even implied in the Bible.

Language mispronunciations and counterintuitive pronunciations

Language gets it wrong.

In Latin and Greek derived words, why doesn’t the H palatalize the C? Why is there even an H when it has absolutely  no effect on the pronunciation? Why aren’t Deinosuchus and saurischians pronounced deinosutjus/Deinosutʃus (daɪnəˈsuːəs or daɪnəˈsjuːəs) and saurishians (sauriʃians), and why isn’t saurischia pronounced sauriʃia, (/sɔːˈrɪʃiə/)? Eschar should be Eshar (Eʃar).

Carcharodon could be Carxarodon as voiceless velar fricative or better Cark͡xarodon with a voiceless velar affricate.

Hipparchus or hipparchicus – why not hippartjicus/Hipparicus?

Guttural CH as in Greek letter chi or German? – how about deinosuΧus? Choreography could be Χoreography. daɪnəˈsjuːΧəs

Voiceless uvular fricative: Yuck, it’s muck should be Yuχ, it’s muχ! Why isn’t “ck” uvular fricative? I’m not going to mention the four-letter word as in “Thank you so fiχen much!” Voiceless uvular trill might be better for the “ck.”

What’s more yuχy than milk?

Why isn’t Détente pronounced De-ten-tay? French is a Spanish like language!

Why are cup and concur not Qup and conqur?

How could there not be a letter k in Latin or Gaelic?

Arguments against evolution and explanations for evolutionary evidence

If there is overwhelming evidence for evolution, it was placed by God to test our faith in the Genesis account of creation. You know Abraham’s faith was tested? Also read 2 Thessalonians 2:9-11. The evidence for evolution is “strong delusions” in verse 11 or more likely “signs and false wonders” in verse 9.

If the universe wasn’t intelligently designed, it would be nothing but a formless GLOB!!! (or blob or whatever you want to call it) of particles and waves.

If there are tens of thousands of transitional forms, they are either inter-species hybrids (just like mules and ligers), inter-genus hybrids, or inter-family hybrids, all three of which occur today.

Carbon-14 dating assumes that organisms haven’t been contaminated, and that all organisms die with the same concentration of carbon-14 and nitrogen-14. How can we know that? Are contaminates removed? How do they know which nitrogen-14 and carbon-14 is contaminants and which is original?

Potassium-argon and uranium-lead dating assume that molten rock always has the same concentration of potassium, argon, uranium, and lead the moment it becomes solid. It assumes that there have been no changes in mineral content from percolation or leaching. How do we know that?

Are radiometric tests adjusted for unconformities? How?

Homo Habilis was a combination of pieces of Homo Erectus and Australopithecus fossils combined to create a hoax of an ape-man. Not deliberate though.

One problem with the idea that humans and dinosaurs coexisted, however, is that there are no dinosaur fossils found wig any hominid fossils.

And the transitions between man and ape in the fossil record are so fine that scientists don’t know where to draw the line between man and ape? Those half-ape fossils are the result of bestiality also called zoophilia, specifically pithecophilia (humans breeding with apes). That breeding of humans with apes was by the wicked people that existed decades before the flood. Consider Genesis 6:1-4 says that the Sons of God (which are either angels of the male descendants of Seth) mated with the daughters of men (which are female humans, maybe cain’s female descendants. Just like fallen angels sinfully mate with humans, humans could sinfully mate with apes to make hybrids.
Some think that the Book of Enoch’s mention of 4,500 foot Giants, succubus and incubus, is parallel to Genesis 6:1-4. However, the Book of Enoch isn’t divinely inspired (let alone Bible canon) and is likely inaccurate.

Also, there are fossils of modern-looking humans deep underground, and based on how deep they are underground, they would have existed long before humans are supposed to have evolved from apes. Evolutionists almost always ignore these fossils.

There are a lot of facts that evolutionists try to ignore.

Evolution is a liberal hoax. Evolutionary results have been faked. Evolutionists are deceived by Satan into denying God. It’s not creationists trying to deny evolution, it’s evolutionists trying to deny the existence of God (Romans 1:18-23).

Besides that, miracles performed by Jesus are incontestable historical facts. Miracles in the Old Testament are also incontestable historical facts. It’s recorded history. And 500 believers couldn’t have made up Jesus ascending into Heaven. If 500 believers made it up, odds are one would tell the truth that it was made up. And Christians wouldn’t lie.

There are things today beyond scientific explanation. Miracles. The movie Breakthrough, a lame person walking again, and others. Tim, are there any miracles of a blind person seeing or a cancer beyond cure becoming cured?

Who could have invented Jesus being a hero by dying in the cross? Could the Romans have invented it as part of their evil campaigns? Probably not.

Theistic evolution theories

One theistic evolution or old-earth creation theory is that on the third day, God created plants in different points of time, and on the fourth day, God placed the sun, moon, and stars into a time before plants. On the fifth day, God created fish in a point of time before fruit trees were created. Six days were literal but outside of time. I call this the non-linear-time creation theory.

Another theory is that there were two timelines, one with billions of years of evolution, and one of six thousand years after six-day creation, and the two timelines merged. In the past, they were separate, and sometime after the flood in the six-thousand year timeline, the two timelines merged. Like continuities in the Marvel and DC Multiverses merge, even though both those are fictional, God in real life could do the same as in those fictional universes because he’s all-powerful. I call this the split-timeline creation-evolution theory. Or merged-timeline creation-evolution theory.

Star Wars prequels were so bad that Disney pretends they don’t exist

This shows that the Star Wars sequels pretend that the Star Wars prequels don’t exist. I searched on Google and can’t find anything that says that.

Just like what Pixar did to Cars 2 with Cars 3, as said in https://www.polygon.com/2017/6/16/15821010/cars-2-pixar-cars-3 (I don’t like that Pixar did that, and I think Cars 2 was great), the Star Wars sequel trilogy pretends that the prequel trilogy never happened.

Cars 3 is to Cars 2 and Star Wars Episodes VII-IX are to I, II, and III.

No mention of Count Dooku, Gungans, midichlorians, or things like those in the Star Wars sequels. None of the planets that appear in the prequels but not the originals appear in any of the sequels.

George Lucas wouldn’t have done that.

The only words I notice that were said in the prequels and sequels but not the originals are “Sith” and “Darth Sidious,” the latter said in Episode VIII: The Last Jedi but not in Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

In some ways but not all ways, this “pretending the prequels don’t exist” good. I don’t like the concept of midichlorians. And I don’t like the gungans like Jar-Jar Binks and other cheesy unpalatable elements of the prequels.
