Lean Skate Lean

How do you fight life. How do you contend against sporadic unknowns.

It's not a question. It's a subjective objective.

These are bullshit truisms of truth.

My Why says the Why man.

So think of any why you have.

Rule it overside and out. Play it Lick It.

Magnify up... Adore... be creative... dance... entertain....

A task is something you methodically conquer through thought, test and recourse. In the Nuclear industry we have an acronym to describe the process: STAR... Stop, Think, Act, Review

A problem is something you haphazardly stumble into with angst, doubt and waiting. In the Unclear industry we have an acronym to describe the process: RATS... Rant, Argue, Talk, Sit  


Well-stoked fears of grid instability and unreliability due to renewable power are as widespread as evidence for them is unfindable.

Renewables disrupt utilities. That's a good thing.

500 pounds here... a ton there... meh... no big deal.

Coal dust is notoriously difficult to control. BNSF estimates that each uncovered car loses between 500 pounds and a ton of coal dust en route.

Portugal and Switzerland? Really?

"Countries like Portugal and Switzerland that have introduced progressive and tolerant drug laws have seen crime plummet and drug-related deaths significantly reduced. We know this. We know this system doesn't work – and yet we prop it up with ignorance and indifference. Why? Wisdom is acting on knowledge. Now we are aware that our drug laws aren't working and that alternatives are yielding positive results, why are we not acting? Tradition? Prejudice? Extreme stupidity? The answer is all three. Change is hard, apathy is easy, tradition is the narcotic of our rulers. The people who are most severely affected by drug prohibition are dispensable, politically irrelevant people. Poor people. Addiction affects all of us but the poorest pay the biggest price."
