In Oregon, Math Should be Used With the Utmost Caution

...because if you use it without government approval during a TV interview, you can be fined for Practicing Engineering Without a License.


...his research into red light cameras has earned him attention in local and national media—in 2014, he presented his evidence on an episode of "60 Minutes"—and an invitation to present at last year's annual meeting of the Institute of Transportation Engineers.

It also got him a $500 fine from the Oregon State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying.... 


'cause impersonating an engineer is serious business. 
There is one little detail though, (Scarcely worth mentioning).

 Saltzman has a bachelor's degree in environmental and civil engineering from Cornell University, a master's degree from MIT's School of Civil Engineering, and is a membership of the American Society of Civil Engineers.  

But he doesn't have a license to use his degree in Oregon.

Pepe' Strikes

I went for a walk and was mugged by a gang of little people in who forced me to buy emotional blackmail cookies. They were all dressed in green and I'm pretty sure they were French 'cause they wore berets.

I Think...

...maybe I should...uh...clean my bedroom.



 

If ever there was an argument for E-books....


UPDATE: J. Greely suggests that this story may be dubiously sourced. If it turns out to be apocryphal, it would still warrant the word "ignominious", but in a slightly different context.

That Place Where The Turtle Died

The settlement down there looks to be imprudently positioned for any number of reasons.

Kongo is a Lady of Impeccable Taste

One of the more surprising things I discovered in my various trips to Japan was that they actually get sweet tea right. While most tea in Japan is unsweetened the Kirin company produces two products that nail the concept.


Kongo receiving tea therapy by Itou.

Despite it being called English Tea, this is actually the sweet tea of the American southeast, which is exactly NOT like the oversweetened syrupy swill that passes for sweet tea in most national chain restaurants and in the soft drink industry. The latter producing such abominations as sweetened GREEN tea. Proper, civilized tea is extremely strong so that the bitterness balances out the sweetness of the cane sugar, (which is an entirely different substance from corn syrup). The sweetness can be further countered by adding lemon juice. This is, for some reason, beyond the capability of the American food service industry outside of a dwindling number of small mom and pop restaurants in the American southeast, despite the fact that it is well within the capability of my late grandmother. 

Kirin is not so incompetent. Both the straight tea and the lemon tea are done perfectly. I never saw this done in a mass marketed product before I pulled one of these out of a Japanese vending machine on a whim.

I was, therefore overjoyed to discover that Amazon now carries this very tea which....



...I should have bought in bulk when I was over there and sold to people who cannot master the concept of the mason jar.

Good.
LORD.
