So, I'm trying to figure out why Bernie Sanders panties are in a bunch.  It's quite evident that the top 20% pays most of the taxes already.  He wants more inequality then??

I cannot share my other website - yet - it's incomplete and I'm just not ready for people to be poking around yet!   However, when I have a site that I've photographed that has Folklore associations it goes to that site, not to my photo blog and so, I still wanted to share this photo because this location is so unique.

This is Wistman's Wood in Dartmoor - one of the last remnant ancient high altitude oakwoods on the moor.  It is well documented and has been written about for hundreds of years, it's quite famous and the walk to see it isn't very long or arduous, just under two miles.

I'm not writing very much about it because it's all on my other site :P

A great visual to go along with Moore's Law :D

Technological Progress
All sorts of remarkable examples exist of the exponential progress of technology but I happened upon this one today and thought I'd share it with others.  Below is an image of a hard drive being loaded onto a plane via a forklift.  Also, in the link below you can purchase a key fob for $5.99 on Amazon.  The hard drive being loaded on the plane had 5mb of storage capacity.  The key fob has 16gb of storage capacity.  Judging roughly by size, they could have fit about 20 of those hard drives in that plane in 1956.  Thus, you'd need 160 planes to carry around in 1956 what you can carry in your pocket on a key ring today.  http://www.amazon.com/HP-v165w-16GB-Flash-Drive/dp/B009VQK3FQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1453642235&sr=8-1&keywords=gb+fob ___A great visual to go along with Moore's Law :D

Pretty much only hipster assholes who themselves think they are some kind of special 'photographer' would think this is right.

If you're taking a photo and you give anything more than a second's thought to the artfulness of said photo, guess what? You're a photographer.

It doesn't mean you're an awesome one, or even a good one - but yeah, you are.

Sorry 'photographers' (and I include myself here) you're not that special. Of course, the really insecure ones will scream the loudest to make sure that they separate the REAL photographers from all the millions of others out there, too. Happy and secure photographers don't give a tiny rat's ass if someone wants to buy a DSLR and call themselves one. Guess what? Product will out.

Buck up, you special snowflakes you Photography is one of the most accessible and easy forms of art. Stop being so stuck up and allow the world to join in the fun. It doesn't harm your level of skill (or really, let's be honest here, total inflated sense of self-worth over your own photography). 

(Aside: you cannot drag and drop photos anymore to make a post? What total dogshit also I just sat here and had to re-edit the post 10x because it kept inserting * and _ where there was none. No wonder people left in droves. Maybe I'll finally make a public facebook.)___

Outstanding luck to have captured that! I wouldn't stick around I don't think haha

Meanwhile, back on planet Earth: Italy’s Etna Unleashes a Short but Spectacular Eruption

After what has been a quiet 2015, Etna saw one of its first paroxysms of the year. Over the last few weeks, the Voragina crater on Etna has been restless, with low level Strombolian activity that was mainly confined to the crater. However, last night, the Voragine crater unleashed a lava fountain that reached 1 kilometer (~3,200 feet) over the volcano with an accompanying ash plume that topped 3 kilometers (~9,800 feet). Even with all that intensity of eruption, the paroxysm was over in only 50 minutes.

So my fancy shmancy +ORIGIN PC is broken because they sent me a borked coolant system.

Here is how it went down. This AM I was absolutely DONE with the super hyper noisy side panel. It vibrates and wiggles and is SO loud. So I took it off. It's the panel with the pretty plexiglas so you can see inside your beautiful machine. Don't get it. It's LOUD.

Upon removing it I suddenly notice three exhaust fans down below. They aren't moving at all. That's not right, I think. So I call tech support.

Through opening even more of my system (was easy) they ask me to spy out the wee power panel for the fans. I find it. They ask me how many plugs I see. I say three. "Should be four" he says. Three for the fans. One for power. Oh god, I think, it's just not plugged in!

After reaching my arm inside and behind the fans, I find the power cord twined up into a circle, tucked away. This immediately led me to believe that it had never been plugged in the first place. But since I had found it, I blithely plugged it in since that what the tech asked me to do and sure enough, they begin to spin!


Well we congratulated ourselves for a job well done and I hang up. Big. Big mistake. Within 5 minutes my computer blue screens and shuts down.

It would not turn back on. I waited a minute or two and see a quick flicker of a message before it shuts down again. "CPU overheat failure"

Really???

Yeah. Really. So whatever plugging in the power to the fans did it broke the whole fan system.

I noticed a couple things. The outtake pipes from the coolant system for the CPU plug right down into the three fans down there. Once I noticed that all kinds of red flags started flying.

Then whilst on the phone with another tech, he admits to me that the picture I sent of the coolant reservoir looks totally wrong and it shouldn't look like that.

I tell him it's looked like that since I unboxed it as a Christmas present last year.

He seems rather perplexed.

I mention the problems I've had earlier in the year with the very same coolant system. He seems vague at this point.

So basically what has happened to me is that we paid a premium price for a premium machine only to get roughshod work that took almost just long enough to go bad after warranty but didn't.

So now I'm forced (and I really am forced since no one anywhere deals with these high end systems let alone have the parts for it) to send this back to them and wait weeks. They were going to force me to pay both shipping AND for a crate to ship it in. But they "allowed" that since I've had such long term issues that they could send a crate "free of charge". Oh gee. How generous. I feel like such a treasured customer.

I am not even remotely happy or satisfied.

I understand this is the best option I'm forced to accept for the mere fact that coolant systems are thin on the ground. But I don't have to like it. Especially when I WOULD HAVE NEVER HAD TO DEAL WITH THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE HAD THEY SENT A WORKING MACHINE.

Why do people enjoy poor quality writing so much?  Is it because it's "easier" to digest?  That has to be it, right?  I just cannot fathom it.

Been looking for a book to read, Fantasy genre -  I just finished a book from Bernard Cornwell and was monumentally underwhelmed by his prose I will not be cracking another book by him, ever.  So I see that this fellow Patrick Rothfuss is popular.  So I look him up on Goodreads and see this review at the top:

I have no interest in imagining I'm someone who is stronger, deadlier, smarter, sexier, etc. than myself - a famed hero in a milqtoast world little different from modern North America.

I read fantasy to immerse myself in strange worlds ripe with danger and conflict. To uncork primal wonders. And there is none of that in Rothfuss' book.

His world is about as strange and dangerous as a mashed potato sandwich. His protagonist is comically overblown wish fullfillment for people who weren't popular in college. I'm absolutely mystified that this novel is so highly regarded by so many.

I welcome fans of the book to explain its appeal. Specifically:

Writing quality. I found the quality of the prose very poor. Cliches abound, the author tells rather than shows, and the language is neither poetic nor elegant. So for those who find the writing quality high, I'd like to hear some examples of writing they feel is poor quality.

Content. I have no interest in wish fullfilment in fiction. So what other content does this novel offer me as a reader? Is there something in the plot or setting that makes this novel stand out to you as exceptional?

And no one could answer reasonably. People just screamed at him, butthurt. Which is more telling than anything else, truth be told.  There was an even longer, better review that just makes me think that basically this is 50 shades of grey for the male Fantasy fan.  (Not S&M, just bad pulp writing with bad plot, bad prose and shallow characters)

But these books remain wildly popular and on lists of "Best" series out there.  I feel like I'm insane.

I think the reason why Twilight, 50 Shades and Bernard Cornwell and Rothfuss are popular HAS to be because of the level of reading comprehension required to consume it.  Right?  I mean...  there is no accounting for taste but... I'm just trying to reconcile.  

Maybe I'll try and put it into context of film.  I enjoy stupid fare like Transformers, because it's brainless eye candy entertainment.  

This possibly the same kind of thing?
 
The only reason I hold out with skepticism is because of the protestations of most of the reviews -- they claim it's one of the BEST THINGS EVER WRITTEN and I just have to scratch my head.  Wha??___

I love this account so much.  I have seen this kind of pretentious bullshit for years, Instagram doesn't have a corner market on people acting like douches and pretending to be superior to everyone else.

People who act like this Hipster Barbie is mocking = we know you're full of shit.  We're laughing at you.

Most of my Photos go to /r/RuralPorn but this one can is /r/EarthPorn material (for once!)

If you like it, it'd be cool to make the front page! (of course if it's too banal and not 'omgIshotthisfromthetopofmounteverest' for you, then I'm sorry) :D
