MooPig TV Series Reviews :: WWGD ?

What Would Geordi Do?
by Pat Darnell

Geordi was the chief engineer aboard the flagship Enterprise of Star Trek -- the Next Generation, NG for short. In the TV series he is without sight, a bachelor, and plausible.

He might have been a stock room supervisor in charge of shrinkage at a Wal-Mart had he not landed this mejores role in Star Trek. But as a sightless, black man of average height, with the elocution of a Harvard professor, Geordi, Levar Burton, LaForge had a multitude of barricades to hurdle.

Luckily he did not have a hard upbringing, as both his role parents are admiral or better in Star Fleet Command. He does not have a need to wear a hopped version of the regular uniform worn by all, because of his ethnicity. Although the resident Klingon, Worf, has to jazz his uniform a bit. But with his head gear, blind Geordi is brilliant; enough said.

LeVar Burton, American actor, director and author first came to prominence portraying Kunta Kinte in the 1977 award-winning ABC television miniseries Roots, based on the novel by Alex Haley.

In his TV role with Next Generation, Geordi had replaced the previous token black Star Trek actress, Officer Uhuru, and the Irish hard-ass chief engineer Mr Scot. Geordi could never fill her shoes, and his accent was 100% LA; so he had to find a different angle of approach to his role. He tweaks the Enterprise with some engineering feats, while cruising the decks thinking outside his cubicle.

His best friend it turns out is an OCD android officer, Data, who he visits just to whisk out the day's chaos, chew the fat or tell some funnies. They usually discussed some freakish mechanical enhancement that they had tried, or jabbered on about Data's lack of emotion. We experience Data through Geordi's chortles, churns, and disambiguaitons.

For all of this, it turns out, blind Geordi LaForge didn't play slide, nor did he flat pick. But he does put a special visor on his eyes. This visor, which looks like a plastic gator hair clip that girls in the eighties wore, allowed Geordi to see above and beyond typical human spectrums. If no one else was detecting, Geordi was detecting.

The toothed visor attaches to "implants" at Geordi's temples. This means he is hot wired often to "detect" things "out there." They usually put fiber optic threads into his head, and had him stand next to a Japanese jungle gym.

So when we say WWGD, "What Would Geordi Do?" it involves detection. "I'm not picking up any tachyon , pistachio, mustachio, stanchion, nor Hitachi wave lengths out there... " is what Geordi might say. It deepens our thirst for mystery that must be quenched before the hour is up.

Of course, WWGD? -- he would fix it, by gosh!

We won't really know until we experience an off-shoot of LeVar Burton's Chief Engineer, through a new personality developed by the Star Trek Universe.

Feb. 16, 2009 – Levardis Robert Martyn Burton Jr., who played Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge on “Star Trek: The Next Generation” (1987-1994), turned 52 last year.

He also hosted the PBS series “Reading Rainbow” (1983-2005).

Report from the Middle :: the Multi-Taskin' Brain

Brains’ Industries of the Multi-Task
By Pat Darnell
It is difficult for almost all humans to access multiple data banks simultaneously in their conscious daily life. Lets’s skip the night time dream states... and although the human brain is functioning on a multi-task level as long as the human is breathing... it cannot for instance negotiate the proper punctuation of a group of triads in a musical score, while mulling over the percentages of fragmentation on its owner’s hard drives over a long period of time. Or can it.

“Can do” is, in human terms, a “should do,” but not universally achievable. A brain works fast enough to simulate foreknowledge, as in playing music or performing gymnastics. For instance, musical scores can be practiced until the performance is automatic... and any accidentals are easily covered. Furthermore, constant defragmentation of hard-drives will yield a baseline of data for anyone concerned with the life expectancy of those drives. Empirical evidence glares in the face of human reasoning... no?

Some folks are prone to do certain activities because their mental state requires them to multi-task in an altered state of mind. Washing the dishes has long been a task that stimulates the other wavelengths available to human thinking.

You know a person who has an automatic dishwasher, yet still washes the dishes in the sink before placing in the DW? Maddening to some observers, but that person is seeking comfort of alter wave length brain activity. Why do you suppose we designers have been placing the kitchen sink at the kitchen window for ‘umpteen generations of homebuilding?

Like playing music, which uses motor and memory skills in hand-eye coordiantion, washing dishes sets the tone of the similar bunches of your brain’s industries. Don't ignore 100 generations of washing dishes; and don't forget your American Musical Heritage.

So in fact one might be able to negotiate a stack of dirty dishes while mulling over the likelihood of hard-drive crashes. Multi-task just means a couple of things happening at one time, while the other functions go on as usual. All that other stuff about multi-tasking is silly; bells and whistles, distant thunder.

Pray for Providence, and that’s Brain Industry as MooPig sees it: Report from the Middle, where all the women are strong; the men are good-looking; and children are all above average.

When You ASSUME ...

When you Assume, it makes an Ass out of U and Me
by Pat Darnell and Abby'rigine Twiggy

Sometime during the glaciation human beings established themselves on the island continent [Australia]. Radiocarbon dating nets this event at a minimum of 45,000 years ago.

What does Radiocarbon dating mean?
Short Answer:  Nitrogen-14 is bombarded by cosmic radiation and turns into Carbon-14. In precise half lives the isotope C-14 turns back to N-14... Capic'e?
Longer Answer: "This is how carbon dating works: Carbon is a naturally abundant element found in the atmosphere, in the earth, in the oceans, and in every living creature. C-12 is by far the most common isotope, while only about one in a trillion carbon atoms is C-14. C-14 is produced in the upper atmosphere when nitrogen-14 (N-14) is altered through the effects of cosmic radiation bombardment -- a proton is displaced by a neutron effectively changing the nitrogen atom into a carbon isotope.
The new isotope is called "radiocarbon" because it is radioactive, though it is not dangerous. It is naturally unstable and so it will spontaneously decay back into N-14 after a period of time. It takes about 5,730 years for half of a sample of radiocarbon to decay back into nitrogen. It takes another 5,730 for half of the remainder to decay, and then another 5,730 for half of what's left then to decay and so on. The period of time that it takes for half of a sample to decay is called a 'half-life.' (Source HERE)"
Carbon Dating - is a dating technique predicated upon three things:
  1. The rate at which the unstable radioactive C-14 isotope decays into the stable non-radioactive N-14 isotope,
  2. The ratio of C-12 to C-14 found in a given specimen,
  3. And the ratio C-12 to C-14 found in the atmosphere at the time of the specimen's death.

... [T]he rate of decay (that is, a 5,730 year half-life) has remained constant throughout the unobservable past.
... We must also assume that the ratio of C-12 to C-14 in the atmosphere has remained constant throughout the unobservable past (so we can know what the ratio was at the time of the specimen's death).
... [Radio Carbon Years, RCY], dates derived are often wildly inconsistent. For example, "One part of Dima [a famous baby mammoth discovered in 1977] was 40,000 RCY, another was 26,000 RCY, and 'wood found immediately around the carcass' was 9,000-10,000 RCY." (Walt Brown, In the Beginning, 2001, p. 176)

Food and Drugs, Fresh Water, and Healthcare: Global South

Healthcare Reform -- a Colossal Waste of Resource .... !
by Pat Darnell

8th Visit today -- but seriously, ... Making it a Law???

Also, not to be a thorn in your [....] nor a practitioner of tangential mechanics to divert attention... no, not even trying to be cute; here is a different kind of interview transcript you might find applicable:

"Bolivian President Evo Morales on President Obama: 'I Can’t Believe a Black President Can Hold So Much Vengeance Against an Indian President' ”

I feel the problemo is three sided. Yes, One is applied science of health care; Two is fresh water supply; Three is food and medicine, as in FDA. ?? No?

Let me make this personal:
Looking back I have never been able to afford healthcare in any form. Even with ample group health insurance I have gone into debt almost every time we needed extensive medical attention for any of our immediate family of eight. Six children from birth to adult hoods, what a nightmare to provide logical, affordable, health care...

And, at 87 my father and mother, God love them, are anxious about "out-living the money."

I don't know anyone today in my circle of family and friends who can honestly say: "I am covered and my family is covered in the event of longterm medical emergency or so on.."

PHOTO credit

Bureaucrats like Hillary and Barry, on the government payroll, with cushy pensions are no judge to any kind of healthcare reforms. They are simply idiot savants, without the savants, if you catch my drift.

They can dance all they want to. Dance like Mick Jagger.. (referral: God, History and You, -- HERE)

[blah blah blah blecch! wretchedness. FLAP!!!]

They can waltz, all I care.

They can spin like draedals...

... And the AMA can spend trillions to persuade bureaucrats to dance to their tune, it is out of my hands... out of my league, always was, always will be.
This interview has mention of the Global South... that means food producers... go on and tell me cost of healthcare cannot be lowered worldwide with proper diet, and plenty of fresh water? Go on try to convince me.

Flowers rock; and so do forests; and you too, MooPigsters everywhere.
[pd out, for now]

MooPig Movie POP Quiz :: "Who was FACE in Original A Team?"

"I thought these pictures of Dirk Benedict (the original Starbuck from the 1978 Battlestar Galactica series), with Katee Sackhoff (the new Starbuck from the 2004 ‘reimagined’ Battlestar Galactica series) at Starbucks were compelling.

I snapped these from the BattleStar Galactica Finale Special that aired on Space TV on March 20, 2009. It looks like they was taken towards the beginning of the ‘reimagined’ series given how young Katee Sackhoff is in them. (Dietrich, Dale. 03.27.2010. HERE)"

"Sedighi claims that not dressing modestly causes earthquakes. If so, we should be able to test this claim scientifically. You all remember the homeopathy overdose?

Time for a Boobqauke.

On Monday, April 26th, I will wear the most cleavage-showing shirt I own. Yes, the one usually reserved for a night on the town. I encourage other female skeptics to join me and embrace the supposed supernatural power of their breasts. Or short shorts, if that's your preferred form of immodesty. With the power of our scandalous bodies combined, we should surely produce an earthquake. If not, I'm sure Sedighi can come up with a rational explanation for why the ground didn't rumble. And if we really get through to him, maybe it'll be one involving plate tectonics."

You with me girls?

So, who's with me? I may be a D cup, but that will probably only produce a slight tremor on its own. If you'll be joining me on twitter, use the tag #boobquake! Or join the facebook event!

(Confused? Angry? Think my science is crap? Read a serious explanation of boobquake here)

Because I made a boob joke.

Since this is probably only going to get crazier in the next couple of days, I want to make a quick clarification. This post is going to be far shorter than it should be since I am a student and I'm trying to finish homework and such, but I wanted to at least acknowledge what people are saying.

I just want to apologize if this comes off as demeaning toward women. To be honest, it started as silly joke that I hurriedly fired off since I was about to miss the beginning of House. I never thought it would get the attention it did. If I would have known, I would have spent more time being careful about my wording.

That being said, I don't think the event is completely contrary to feminist ideals. I'm asking women to wear their most "immodest" outfit that they already would wear, but to coordinate it all on the same day for the sake of the experiment. Heck, just showing an ankle would be considered immodest by some people. I don't want to force people out of their comfort zones, because I believe women have the right to choose how they want to dress. Please don't pressure women to participate if they don't want to. If men ogle, that's the fault of the men, not me for dressing how I like. If I want to a show a little cleavage or joke about my boobs, that's my prerogative.

I also hate the ideal of "big boobs are always better!" The cleavage joke was just a result of me personally having cleavage, and that being my choice of immodesty. And I thought "boobquake" just sounded funny. Really, it's not supposed to be serious activism that is going to revolutionize women's rights, but just a bit of fun juvenile humor. I'm a firm believer that when someone says something so stupid and hateful, serious discourse isn't going to accomplish anything - sometimes light-hearted mockery is worthwhile.

Anyway, I'm not forcing anyone to agree with me. Maybe I am failing at Feminism 101, or maybe I'm just taking a different approach.

And to the scientists who are concerned with my methods - don't worry, I fully plan on doing some statistics after the event. I know many earthquakes happen on a daily basis, so we're looking to see if Boobquake significantly increases the number or severity of earthquakes. Or if an earthquake strikes West Lafayette, IN and only kills me, that may be good evidence of God's wrath as well (I'm not too concerned). And yes, I know I need a larger sample size to make this good science. Maybe I'll include Mardi gras in my calculations.
