I’m making this post as a reference to check back on later. In Idaho last year, legislators struck down a bill that would end child marriages in the state. I asked myself why anyone would support child marriage, and it made me wonder if statutory rape was exempted if one is married to the child. Turns out, that’s the case in pretty much every state that allows underage marriage. No wonder it’s so popular. Continue Reading
This is my long fb post addressing an article that attacks nuclear energy by claiming that renewables are cheaper.
Cleantechnica article shared by Global Warming “Fact” Of The Day:
“Correcting Anti-Renewable Energy Propaganda” 
Buckle up, this is a long one.
They start out by attacking nuclear energy, our largest source of clean energy, and referring to proponents as “anti-renewable propagandists.” Continue Reading
Here are the tracks I played tonight. Wasn’t as busy as last week but still a really good night. Played a mix of country and classic rock until about 10:45, which is the norm for the foreseeable future at that bar. Enjoy!
Dj Kool ft Biz Markie & Doug E. Fresh – Let Me Clear My Throat
Luke Bryan – That’s My Kind Of Night
Montell Jordan – This Is How We Do It
Cypress Hill – Insane In The Brain
Nelly – Ride With Me Continue Reading
So I’ve been listening to a lot of Alestorm lately, (check out No Grave But The Sea, it’s awesome), and it got me thinking: Modern “pirate” music has to be influenced by movies; like, culturally this is where we get our idea of what “pirate music” should sound like. So would it be fair to say that a movie composer like John Williams or Hans Zimmer could be the “father of modern pirate music”? Continue Reading
Here is the playlist for the set I DJed last night. They are not all in order as I went back and forth between two different programs throughout the night, Serato for my main mixing and another for playing requests and songs I don’t have on my laptop. Had a ton of fun and a great crowd, started the night off with country/classic rock and then kicked off the dance music sometime between 10:30 and 11.
Rick Springfield – Jessie’s Girl
Leo Santana & Anitta – Contatinho
Popbytes – Ultimate 80’s Mashup
Cardi B – I Like It (ft Bad Bunny, J Balvin)
Ludacris – What’s Your Fantasy Continue Reading
Parodies for Nuclear Power.
Lizzo – Truth Hurts parody. Here’s the original for reference, and here’s an instrumental version for anyone who wants to sing along.
Why wind great ’til it gotta blow great? Continue Reading
In past posts I’ve talked about the arguments against nuclear energy, and refutations to those arguments (1. Basics, 2. Capacity, 3. Waste, 4. Cost). But what is nuclear energy? In this post, we will explore how nuclear power is generated.
So, what exactly is nuclear energy? Continue Reading
Here are three short videos I made on the main functions of the CDV-718 survey meter. This is the same as the military Radiac Set AN/VDR-2, except that it’s Civil Defense (FEMA) Yellow instead of Olive Drab green, and it reads in Roentgen (R) and mR, instead of Grey (Gy) and mGy. Continue Reading
Here’s the tracklist for the set I played the other night. It wasn’t very busy so I took the opportunity to mix it up a little. Soundchecked with Hollywood Undead. Enjoy!
Hollywood Undead – Comin In Hot
DJ Change – Drake & Wiz Khalifa vs Cage The Elephant – I Did it Overnight (Hiphop Rock Mashup)
Kanye West – Can’t Tell Me Nothing
Mims – This Is Why I’m Hot
Tinie Tempah – Till I’m Gone ft Wiz Khalifa Continue Reading
To go along with my posts Radium Sources and Uranium Glass, here are my miscellaneous samples that don’t fit easily into either category (despite some having the same active elements). These are Fiestaware, uranium ore samples, thorium sources, and a few other things I have laying around. All these and more can also be found on my Instagram page. Enjoy! Continue Reading
To go along with my Uranium Glass and Other Sources posts, here are the pics of my radium sources; clocks, watches and compasses. In the first couple decades of the 1900’s, radium was painted onto things like clocks because it glows in the dark; hit it with a blacklight, and not only will it glow, but the glow fades away slowly too. Of course, that depends on how depleted the radium is. Again, like with the glass, these are very safe to own and keep, just wash your hands after handling and don’t touch any of the faces directly if you happen to have one missing a cover or something. Continue Reading
I’ve done CPM (counts-per-minute) readings on pretty much all of my radiation sources with the Radalert 50. Below are all my uranium-glass sources. Some are Vaseline glass, some are custard glass, some I’m not sure about, but they all were colored with uranium (or thorium) and so they read on the Geiger counters. They are perfectly safe to have and even to use; the radiation levels they emit are negligible. Continue Reading
I picked up a “Double Cooler” today, a drink cooler with internal and external compartments for the purpose of having two separate drinks in one cooler. Continue Reading
Here is an excel file I threw together comparing the setlists from the nights that I DJ’ed. Songs I played both nights are highlighted in red, and songs that were the same song but different versions (i.e. remix vs original) are highlighted in blue. Continue Reading
Did a few Gamma Specs today, here are the results.
The first one was an orange Fiestaware cup. I believe they colored it with Uranium-Oxide, which is what makes it radioactive. The results here show us that Thorium-234 and Uranium-235 are both certainly present.
Here’s last night’s playlist. Pretty different than many of mine; there was one significant music folder I tried not to play out of, and by the end of the night I think I only played one song out of there. A lot of stuff I usually play (early in the night) didn’t get played at all. Also, I went a significant amount of the night before I realized I didn’t play almost anything above 100bpm. Once I realized this, I actively tried to keep it up. Continue Reading
