wireclub rod

when big church went rogue, or whatever the heck that was, i had been going to a chat on another social network to chat. they have a room called religion there. after a while, it seemed like the majority of people that came in there only came to mock god and those who love them.

so, naturally, i appointed myself the imperial chat defender of god and his people. most of you that know me from chat know that i can be pretty harsh when you tick me off. i guess you might be able to discern that on this blog too. anyways, as you might surmise, i started ripping into the athiests at wireclub. seriously, all the time. it was something of a revival and other christians started standing up to the bullies and trolls too. it was beautiful. for a while.

evidentally, the athiests and other god haters didn't like being put in thier place and they complained, and i got banned. over and over. consequentally, i have counted over 3,000 accounts that i have created there because they would ban me for fighting athiests. ackchooly, i stopped counting at 3,000 because i figured out a way to make a new account without making a new email address. i had a file with the 3,000 emails i had made until that time. i probably have made 3,000 more accounts since i learned to avoid the email step.

anyways...the point here is that i have come head to head with the guy who programmed and established wireclub more than a few times. he is this fat pompous canadian named rod furlan and it says on wikkipedia that he is some kind of genius. i have altered that wikki entry in hysterical ways many times and he always gets it fixed. latest tactic has been to make accounts that incorporate rod's face on various bodies. i got a hold of a picture of him and i am REALLY good with photoshop. i have made well over 1,000 of these pictures and i KNOW rod has to have seen a lot of them. it is hysterical. i am SO bad.

here are just a few of them. if anyone knows rod, tell him about this.

hobbes slept in calvin's bed last night. calvin slept in his other bed (a pillow in a box next to my bed). when he woke up, he carefully got all the way over to the other side and laid down.

it isn't really a bed at all. it is a pillow with a cubs pillow case on it, in the bottom of what used to be a vinyl over cardboard thomas the train toy box. they both came together like that and were $3 at the thrift shop. probably the thrift shop got it like that and thought it went together well. they do.

calvin has been steadily destroying the toybox part. he climbs in over the side and has done that so much that it has just completely collapsed. i fold it underneath. he usually gnaws on the toy box too. it isn't going to last until he outgrows it, but when it gets too raggedy i will just put the pillow on the floor.

if he gets as big as mastiffs do, i want to get one of those 55 gallon blue plastic drums. i will lay it on its side and make legs for it so it doesn't roll. i will carpet the whole inside like the little cat tree of hobbes' that he likes. then i will rig some sort of door so it will be his crate. he is already outgrowing his original crate.
solar success

i might have mentioned this before, but it bears repeating. i have had some success in the pop can solar heat battlefront. i clocked 100 degrees at the top of my cardboard model on a sunny day. i was really impressed by this as it was a quickie cardboard mock up and i didn't expect much out of it.

i have immediately started the production of another indoor solar furnace. i am making it out of foam to fit the window. this picture shows the beginnings of the foam furnace on the left. i am intentionally designing it so that the top of it is a shelf. liquids hold heat well, so i am going to stack a bunch of bottles of water on that shelf in hopes of retaining some of the generated heat into the evening.

on the right, higher, is the cardboard model with a bunch of water bottles beneath it to try to retain some heat. the bottles are all painted flat black too so they will get maximum heat from the sun as well as heat from the furnace.

i have been recording temperatures in the church through this. it seems that usually it is around 51-54 durring the mornings, and when the sun hits the windows around 11:00 it gets to 60 or so. on a really sunny day, it gets as high as 68 in the church. and these are just the temperatures without any solar help besides the window. when the sun goes down, it drops pretty quickly. back in the low 50s by 8:00, and lower as the temperature goes down outside.

with the cardboard furnace, temperatures have been about 6 degrees warmer thruout the day, and they drop a little slower at night. i am very hopefull for the foam furnace. i am waiting for a drill bit that i ordered online to finish the foam furnace.
calvin & hobbes

calvin keeps growing, but he is still relatively small. my doesn't think he is half mastiff as i was told. i don't know what the people i got him from would gain by lying about his breed. they were just people raising the puppies thier had.

i suppose they could be mistaken about who got her preggers, but they seemed pretty sure. his face is starting to look more mastiff than pit bull lately too. he is definitely not all pit. he is really laid back and gentle too, which are mastiff traits and NOT pit.

i don't care, i will see. he is a really great whatever he is. smart as a whip and really affectionate and loving. hobbes and him sleep more than they are awake. i looked it up, and 10 week old puppies can sleep from 18-22 hours a day. 22 hours a day? sometimes calvin gets close to that if i let him.

compost toilette?
Posted:Nov 16, 2013 4:26 pm

i am finishing my basement and making it into a livable apartment. my parents own a large corner apartment building, and me and each of my have all stayed there inexpensively during hard times. we all also lived there for 10 years when i first got custody of them.

right now, my middle is staying in the apartment i last used, and my brother is staying in the apartmnetn where me and the lived together. my folks aren't going to be around forever. they have already bought a retirement condo in an old fogie community downstate. me and my siblings fight like cats and dogs and likely won't agree enough to keep the place if it is willed to us.

so...i am thinking that i am going to set my basement up as a cheap apartment for family members in need (specifically my , or my neices and nephews). there will always be someplace inexpensive that my family can stay when circumstances cause them to have to move fast.

right now, my friend mike is staying with me. we are trading labor for rent, mike is a plumber. we are putting a washroom in the basement. right now, tenants use the church bathroom, which has a shower too. putting a standard toilet in would be a real issue because we would have to tear up a lot of floor for a drain.

so i made a decision, we are putting in a urinal instead. we are piping in a urinal, a small sink, and a shower. these can all drain to a regular floor drain and don't require a toilet stack. in leiu of the lou, i am leaving a small 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 corner of the washroom open for a portable potty.

i have been researching compost toilettes and they seem to be a real possibility. the one i am looking at lasts 3 months with a family of 3 without cleaning, and cleaning just means emptying a container that contains a sort of ash like compost. it has a stack that exhausts outside it is supposed to not smell at all.

evidentally, a high percent of our waste is fluid. the compost toilette seperates out fluid and evaporates it, and what is left gets hand tumbled (there is a crank on it) and you have to add some sort of germs that eat everything and poop out compost. seriously.

i am thinking that this toilette won't need to get used that often. especially with the urinal there. also, i don't always have someone staying here. it seems like a way to provide an alternative to going in the church. so far, i have only had people i fully know and trust stay here. if that were not the case, i would prefer that they didn't come and go from the church.

i got the shower base on ebay, and it is a really nice one. triple threshold. i got the urinal and sink (the sink has a working faucet) on craig's list. not including rent/labor, this is going to happen for less than a grand. thank you god.
what does gavel have 2 blogs?

what is going on here? graven has TWO blogs?

Intelligent Design & the heretic.

i mean, i cood really care less if garvon has a million blogs, he still could not be very interesting. my problem is that MY original blog was deleted and i want it back.

i think i have had near 100 blogs here and i didn't get to keep them. so why does gavity gets special treatment?

gavon useta be my friend, but he ottered me in the back. that is all water under the bridge. i have put all my old BC grudges to rest and have started over again. everyone has a clean slate. i even forgive marky the cookie monster

that doesn't mean that i am forgetting that marky emailed my pastor with lies trying to get me in trouble, or that i will let my guard down around him. he is a dangerous sociopath. it just means i am not going to punish him for it anymore.

likewise i have dropped all my chat grudges and just love everyone as my brother in christ. although, a lot of you are still holding grudges against me. i forgive you for not forgiving me

the cross completes the law

when god laid the life of jesus down it completely completed the law. it was finished. jesus was the only one that would ever live a perfect life according to the law. he had to be perfect to be our lamb, and nobody else will ever be perfect again.

likewise, there can be NO new laws after his life on earth was complete. that was it, the torah was sealed at his human death. there are some 613 commandments in the law which define sin. there can not be new sins added later. 613 is plenty.

the epistles are some good godly advice, but they are not commandments. your pastors may also have some good godly advice, but again, not commandment.

of course there are many things that the commandments don't address directly that are still sin. we each of us know what is and isn't for us. some of us just ignore the pleadings of the friendly ghost.

however, as far as accusing others of sin, it really had better be spelled out in the commandments or you are in sin. sin means literally 'to miss the mark.' it sort of implies that you at least tried to hit the mark. if people keep on moving the mark wherever the heck they want to without having to follow the rulebook, nobody will EVER even get close.
traffic vigilante (first blood)

in chicago, a rolling stop is when you slow way down when coming to a stop sign, but don't really ever stop moving entirely. it is a completely acceptable practice, exspecially in rush hour traffic or when other aggressive drivers are trying to steal your right of way.

well, i not only got a ticket for a rolling stop during monday morning rush hour, but it was a rookie cop and he tried to give me a lecture. i asked him would he still give me the ticket if i listened to his lecture, and when he said 'yes,' i told him to shut up. i didn't have to listen to him AND get a ticket. it wasn't his job to rag on me.

anyways, it turned into a 6 month long court circus that ended with me needing to go to court 3 times ($8 parking each time), paying fines and court costs of $294.00, and serving 8 hours charity at an NFP. fortunately, i happen to run an NFP. in addition, three different judges treated me like poo, as well as the police line that runs the metal detectors at the entrance of the court house. at no point in this process did i feel like anything i had to say was considered or that anyone cared the least bit about anything but the money.

in protest to this HUGE indignation and financial assault, i have decided not to follow traffic laws if nobody is looking. when i thought about it, i would guess that there is probably only another car even present at most stops less than half the time. i usually ride side streets and obscure routes, i hate traffic. when i thought about it more, there probably were not cops present at side street stop signs more than a fractio of a % of the time.

i decided i would then not stop at 294 stop signs to make up for the money they hit me for. then, i decided i would only give them 50 cents for each stop sign, so that they owed me 588 blown stop signs. but it turned out to be SO much fun blowing stop signs that i just stopped counting and decided i would stop if they ever caught me, and i would tell them why i was doing it and a guesstimate of how many stops i have run.

i never realized before how mindless it is obeying traffic laws blindly. i would just always stop at a stop sign, and never considered running a red light. but now, i just scan carefully for other cars, or police, and if all is clear i just kind of slide through intersections. 99.9% of the time it is not a dangerous move if you slow down and look. a lot of the routes i travel don't even have many other vehicles.

like i said, it is REALLY fun. i feel as if i am getting a little tiny piece of even every time i run a stop, and it makes me smile. i also get where i am going a whole lot faster.

it was SO worth the $300

yesterday was 2 weeks since i got calvin. he was 7 weeks when i got him, so he is 9 weeks now. when he moved in, he was just a little smaller than hobbes, and now he is just a little bit bigger.

he has the hiccups all the time, and that worried me enough to google it. they say that puppies hiccup like people have growing pains. he is going to be really big.

i made a quickie little prototype out of foam. foam is NO fun to work with, but fighting with it gave me a better plan for my next trial. it is still easier (and lighter) than wood. and it is thermally friendly.

i have it up in a window in the church right now, and a little fan blowing upwards to circulate any heat. i have a digital thermometer in there and we are starting at 60 degrees, so we shall see if it is any warmer in there tonite at service.

the bottom right is the part that faces into the window, and the top left is it up in the window.
