The Nasty Pro-Homosexual Video by Mercedes-Benz
Jenab6
jenab6
Last summer (2019), the Mercedes-Benz car company put out a commercial that presented homosexuality in a glamorous and appealing way. It was posted as a video on YouTube. I won't post the link to it here (because shit should never be put in bowls to make it look like chocolate pudding), but I will repeat my comment on it.
.

No Mercedes-Benz cars for me, ever.

This normalization of sexual perversion got a boost in 1973, when the American Psychiatric Association was taken over by homosexuals who had infiltrated it in previous years. With the help of Marxist agitators, they bullied their way to control of the APA, and then they removed homosexuality from the official list of behavioral disorders. That act wasn't done because of any new science; it was entirely the result of political pressure. Ever since then, the American Psychiatric Association has been unreliable on the subject on which they are deemed to be authorities.

Look at the vote count. As I write this on 21 September 2019, it's 6900 thumbs-up and 18000 thumbs-down. That's 27.7% approval and 72.3% disapproval. Is that the kind of reaction you expected, Mercedes-Benz?

Consider the nature of homosexual propaganda. There is no focus on what homosexuals actually do, nor any recognition of the diseases they spread, nor any discussion of the disfiguring injuries that homosexual acts can cause. It's all PR-powder-puffery and glamorizing: bright pink paint on a turd.

The Hubble recession speed, as a fraction of the speed of light, is found from
v = 0.072612564 d
when the distance, d, is in billions of light years.

Interesting fact. Objects that are observed to be on (or very close to) the cosmological horizon will have moved, during the light travel time, to a present distance that is equal to a factor of e (the base of natural logarithms, 2.718...) farther away than the cosmological horizon. The present recession speed, furthermore, will have risen to a factor of e times the speed of light.

My favorite backpacks and messenger bags
Jenab6
jenab6
Because I don't own a working vehicle, I have to hike into town (five miles) to carry my outgoing mail to the post office, pick up my packages, and then hike (another five miles) back home. Often I'm under heavy load both ways. However, as a side benefit, I get to eat ice cream sandwiches and Hunt Brothers Pizza while I'm in town. Anyway, it is to my advantage to have a good backpack and a spacious cross-body carry bag.

Yes, there once was a time when backpacking ten miles felt like nothing and I could do it every day. But I'm an old guy now, and I've slowed down a bit due to wear and tear. You wait long enough, and it'll happen to you too.

A warning to buyers of backpacks and carry bags: These don't really hold as much as their sellers or manufacturers claim. The actual capacity is usually about half of the advertised capacity, if you carry the full bag with all zippers closed.

I've been buying backpacks and messenger bags experimentally from sellers on eBay and on Amazon. Here are some that have found favor with me — plus a few more that didn't.

Careful observation and repeated measurements has taught me that packaged, roasted coffee beans have a volume of 58 cubic inches (or 0.95 liters) per pound. It has become my main method for measuring bag volume. I have on hand packages of various coffees in one-pound, two-pound, and five-pound sizes. They allow me to pack nearly any backpack or carry bag to fullness without leaving any significant gaps of empty space.

BACKPACKS

1. Hynes Eagle 40L. This has been my workhorse for a while. It's big enough to hold six pairs of men's size XXL jeans in the main compartment, and still get the zipper closed. It will, alternatively, hold 18 pounds of packaged coffee beans, if the packing is optimized so that no space is wasted, and then the zipper will barely close, so the main compartment of the Hynes Eagle 40L is actually closer to 17 liters. In addition to that capacity, the backpack will carry a bit more in a secondary compartment. And there is a small tertiary compartment in which I keep letters that actually do need reading, a Pak-Lite LED cap on a 9V battery, a handkerchief, a folded up laundry bag, a chronometer-clock like what track coaches use, and a small billfold/change-purse kind of thingy. This backpack might have about 20 liters of volume capacity altogether.

2. Hynes Eagle 44L. I don't know what idiot thinks that this backpack will hold 44 liters, but my own efforts managed to cram 10 pounds of coffee beans, having a volume of nine and a half liters, into the main compartment and have the zipper close. Clever packing tricks might allow for 12 liters of carrying capacity, maybe, and I haven't checked the secondary compartments yet. But it's clear to me that the so-called 44L backpack is even less roomy than the 40L model.

CROSS BODY CARRYING BAGS (messenger, satchel, duffle)

1. Ahmik Classic/Vintage Canvas Messenger Bag. The interior of the bag is well constructed, is finished, is well organized. As a decoration, the bag sports some writing that is obviously intended to mimic some official stamping by a careless army supply sergeant. It's nonsense, but it does make the bag look a little more macho. Capacity of main compartment with zipper closed: 8.5 liters. Capacity of main compartment with zipper open: 10 liters.

2. Rapiddominance Classic Military Messenger Bag. The interior of the bag is lined with polyester, and there is a polyester flap with a plastic zippered pocket. When you remove this lining, you'll find that the bag stitching is unfinished in the interior of the main compartment (strings). Capacity of main compartment with zipper closed: 9 liters. Capacity of main compartment with zipper open: 10.5 liters.

3. Lifewit 17" Men's Messenger Bag. This is a good little satchel. It is lined with something better than polyester, but I'm not sure what the lining material is. Capacity of the main compartment with zipper closed: 9.5 liters. Capacity of the main compartment with zipper open: 11 liters.

4. J World New York Thomas Messenger Bag. This bag is obviously too small and isn't macho enough to be carried by men. When it arrived in the mail, I laughed at it. The interior has a divider that, really, it should not have. Capacity of the main compartment with zipper closed: 7.5 liters. Capacity of the main compartment with zipper open: 10 liters.

5. Plambag Duffle Bag 50L. This is a duffle bag, not a messenger bag. Duffles are the next higher order volume capacity in manly luggage. The main compartment of this duffle bag has a compact configuration and an expanded configuration, which can be adjusted by opening or closing a zipper on either end of the bag. Capacity of main compartment with end zippers closed: 18 liters. Capacity of main compartment with end zippers open: 22 liters. Capacity of each of the two end compartments: 2 liters. Capacity of the frontal compartment: 1 liter. Maximum capacity of the Plambag Duffle Bag observed during testing: 27 liters. UPDATE, 20 September 2019: I found a way to put 26 liters into the main compartment with the end zippers closed, which raises my estimate of the Plambag duffle's total capacity (including all secondary compartments) to 35 liters.

The decorative shopping bag will hold 15 liters' worth of groceries.

The Wide Eyes of Leftist Demagogues
Jenab6
jenab6
I noticed a curious thing about many leftists. They often widen their eyes greatly, showing much sclera, when they are remonstrating. Here's an example.



Here are four photos of the same phenomenon being exhibited by Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez.



Does anyone know why leftists do this? Is it a non-verbal threat of some sort?

More instances of "the SJW Stare" can be found. For example, here's a Marxist with a medical degree attempting to talk down a feminist who contravened the latest version of Political Correctness by publishing a poster on which appeared the dictionary definition of the word woman. The SJW doctor is taking the offending feminist to task because, he believes, the feminist intended to slight transgenders. Notice his eyes. Once again, the excessive display of sclera can be seen, even though his concave glasses make his eyes appear smaller than they really are.


An Open Letter to the San Francisco Police
Jenab6
jenab6
Hello police officers in San Francisco. I saw on one of Stefan Molyneux's videos the meeting between officers in your department and members of the public, on the subject of personal safety versus criminals.

Some of the advice I heard seemed unsound. In particular, there was a sense of how the law-abiding citizen should be very careful not to tempt thieves into stealing their cell phones or into breaking into their homes. The officer who was speaking stressed the importance of the law-abiding citizen to refrain from exercising their rights to the fullest, in order to avoid attracting the attention of the law breakers.

Do you understand why this is wrong? There is no idea more obscene than that decent people should be required to give ground or the right-of-way to vile predators. Good should ROAR, so that evil trembles — not the other way around.

Wherever the police aren't allowed to do their jobs, properly and effectively, there should be no police at all. In all such places, the police should resign and get out of the way, so that the people can, after acquiring suitable weapons, deal with the criminals themselves.

There will be chaos for a time, of course. But chaos does not last forever. If the good people still have the bad people outnumbered, then out of the chaos there will rise a new order, and, from what I've heard about California, it cannot help but be a better order than the sham order that exists there now.



Any standing armed force is a shield for somebody. A police force is supposed to be a shield for the law-abiding citizen against criminals.

But in San Francisco, and in similarly governed leftist cities, the police are a shield for the criminals against vigilante action by citizens. Come right down to the choice, the police in such places will protect the criminal more than the citizen.

In other words, it is certainly possible for the police to be, in sum, a boon to workers of iniquity and a bane to honest people. The latter would be better off if there were no police and no laws, and each citizen were free to deal summary justice to any criminals they see. If good people outnumber bad people, as they usually do, then the chaos that will reign for a time will end as a new civil order rises, with people wiser for the experience.

The SPLC offers us a strawman argument in regard to White Nationalist statements on crime rates
Jenab6
jenab6
From the website of the Southern Poverty Law Center comes a strawman argument by which they hope to make white nationalists appear to be lying about the correlation between race and crime.

SPLC says: "Vast majority of most crimes are committed by a person of the same race as the victim, Bureau of Justice Statistics reports."

The problem with that is nobody, including white nationalists, has ever said anything to the contrary. It is true, for example, that blacks murder other blacks more often than they murder whites.

What white nationalists have been saying is that blacks murder whites at higher per capita rates than whites murder blacks, and that the threat of whites to blacks is substantially less than is the threat of blacks to whites.

Do you see the difference between what white nationalists actually do say, and the deceptive substitute claim that the SPLC is trying to put into their mouths?

SPLC says: "The Justice Department's statistics-crunching arm just blew up a whole stack of white-supremacist myths about the nature of interracial crime and violence committed by minorities."

No, the Justice Department has done no such thing. Instead, the Bureau of Justice Statistics routinely confirms what white nationalists (there are few, if any white supremacists in the United States nowadays) have said about the nature of interracial crime and violence committed by minorities.

SPLC says: "In a report released Thursday titled 'Race and Hispanic Origin of Victims and Offenders, 2012-2015, the DOJ's Bureau of Justice Statistics found that a majority of most violent crimes are committed by people who are the same race as their victims."

And the white nationalists have not been saying anything contrary to this. Indeed, the same fact has been noted by white nationalists at least since 1995. For example, a website called "Jerry's Aryan Battle Page" took murder-by-race-of-victim-and-offender statistics from the FBI's annually published document "Crime In the United States" and called attention to that very same fact.

The SPLC then makes a probably intentionally misleading statement: "Indeed the rate of white-on-white violent crime, it found, is about four times the rate of black-on-white violent crime."

Ah, no. When speaking about rates of violent crime, what is meant isn't the rate over time. What is meant is the rate per capita and per time. There's a good reason for that.

If we wanted to find out whether the average Californian or the average Nevadan were the more crime-prone, we wouldn't simply count the number of crimes in California, count the number of crimes in Nevada, and then compare the two totals. California has a much higher population than Nevada does, and if we fail to adjust the raw rates over time for population size, we would create the impression that the typical Californian is much more violent than he really is, or that the typical Nevadan is much less so.

The same is true when you compare races. You must correct the rates over time for population size, in order to find the rates per time per capita. That's the rate that can be meaningfully compared.

And that's what the SPLC is trying to obscure with its sanctimonious words.

There is so much deception in leftist (and Jewish) interpretation of America's crime statistics that there simply is no substitute for getting the official data yourself and having the knowledge to analyze it correctly.

In Crime in the United States, 2013, the FBI recorded that, for murder...

white victims of "white" offenders: 2509
white victims of black offenders: 409
black victims of "white" offenders: 189
black victims of black offenders: 2245

However, you must be aware that when Hispanics are offenders, the FBI treats them as white for statistical purposes. Most, probably upwards of 90%, of the Hispanics in the United States are mestizos, and mestizos aren't white because they are, instead, descended in large part from American aboriginals rather than from Europeans.

Of the 2509 "white" murderers in the United States in 2003, 532 of them were Hispanic or Latino, leaving 1977 actual white killers (who are persons of European descent).

The population of the United States in 2013 was 321 million. Of that population, 197.3 million were white, 56.5 million were mestizos, 40.6 million were blacks, 17.2 million were Asians, and the rest were Injuns, Pacific Islanders, and mixed-race people.

Among the criminals whom the FBI and the Department of Justice regards as "white," about 22% of them were actually mestizos. There are jurisdictions within the states that have tracked mestizo crime separately from crimes committed by whites of European descent, and from this information we have, over time, seen that mestizos commit murder at about three times the rate that whites do.

If you have 100 "DoJ white" murderers, then probably about 78 of them really are white, while 22 of them are really mestizos incorrectly categorized as racially white by the Justice Department. And if the average mestizo murderer commits three murders for each murder committed by the average white murderer, then 45.8% of the murders that the DoJ attributed to "white" offenders was really perpetrated by a mestizo.

The erroneous system of racial categorization used by the Department of Justice makes it possible for groups such as the SPLC to play a trick on us. Mestizos are NOT white. But they are called "white" in order to make whites look more crime prone that they really are.

It isn't possible to exactly correct the FBI's numbers in its murder by race of victim and offender tables. But we can do so approximately by estimating the number of murders, allegedly committed by "whites," but actually committed by mestizos, and subtracting them from the relevant totals in the table.

white victims of white offenders: 1360 (roughly corrected)
white victims of black offenders: 409
black victims of white offenders: 102 (roughly corrected)
black victims of black offenders: 2245

Now, it is still true that more whites were murdered in 2013 by other whites than by blacks. But, as we've noticed, what really matters isn't the rate over time, but the rate per time per capita (of the perpetrator's race). After that adjustment, the table becomes:

white victims of white offenders: 6.89 per million whites
white victims of black offenders: 10.1 per million blacks
black victims of white offenders: 0.52 per million whites
black victims of black offenders: 55.3 per million blacks

And that's what is meaningful. The highest per capita rate remains with black-on-black murder. However, we can now see that the SPLC was lying to us about the relative danger to whites from, on the one hand, other whites, and, on the other hand, from blacks.

The danger to a specific white person from 100 randomly encountered blacks is 46.6 percent higher than from 100 randomly encountered other whites. And, bear in mind, that there's an access-related skew in this conclusion. The races do tend to self-segregate, and as a result the number of opportunities for other whites to murder the specific white is much greater than is the number of opportunities for blacks to murder the specific white.

It is also worth observing, from the per capita murder rates, that the average black murders a white about 19.4 times as often as a white murders a black. That's a noteworthy point, and don't let anybody distract you from it.

But the bottom line is: Don't trust the SPLC to do your thinking for you. They cheat.

That's 663 deaths in 80 days, or an average death rate of 8.2875 per day.

Least squares linear fit, without weighting (N=13):
Deaths = 8.17751141 (JD−2458626) − 1240.04566

If you incrementally weight these data, so that the oldest point gets used once, the 2nd oldest point gets used twice, etc., and the most recent point gets used 13 times, then the least squares fit through the resulting weighted data is

Deaths = 8.09290655 (JD−2458626) − 1244.82028

And Julian Date 2458626 was 22 May 2019, which begins this data period.

On the graph paper, you can see that this covers the most recent period (22 May 2019 through 10 August 2019) of the epidemic in which the growth of the death count has been approximately linear.
