“Campus cops used to be such jokes that my university didn't allow them to carry weapons. Mostly, the cops spent the night patrolling near the girls dorms and the days catching students parked on campus without parking permits. None of that exactly required heavy artillery.

The "no weapons" rule was instituted after one of the campus cops shot himself in the foot.”

“Interesting that Billy Mitchell accurately predicted so much about the attack 15 years before December 7, 1941. He predicted:

>the attacker would be Japan
>the attack would be on the naval base at Pearl Harbor
>the attack would be on some quiet Sunday morning
>the attack would be by carrier based aircraft
>there would be no warning ("Japan never warns before it attacks.")
>the loss of life and ships would be devastating
>the attacker would get away mostly unscathed

For these predictions, and other comments, Mitchell was court martialed.”

“He was smart, but he was a jerk. And if you have been in any organization of any type then you know guys like that. Ultimatly everyone will want to get rid of them because they always have better ideas, know more than you, and can't shut up. Interestingly many of the other visionaries in the interwar period had a reputation for being abrasive (Guderian, Douhet, Fuller, Liddel Hart), but Mitchell was in a class of his own in practicallly begging to get fired. At some point nobody will get your message when you spend most of your time pissing everyone off.”

“I'll give you a great mystery about chameleons and I dare you to solve it. I've observed it twice in two years, so I know it isn't a fluke.

I turned on my back porch light late at night and saw a chameleon on the railing. The railing is a sort of reddish-brown AND SO WAS THE CHAMELEON. Bear in mind that it was totally dark prior to my turning on the light, so how did the chameleon know what color to use as camouflage? It was such a perfect match that I would never have seen the critter had it not moved slightly, startled by the sudden flash of light.

Can chameleons see in total darkness? Do they have some other way to sense color than simple eyesight? Is there some sort of biochemical reaction between colors and chameleons that we don't understand? Can they change color in a nanosecond?

Foe my money, this one is right up there with Einstein's "spooky action at a distance" description of quantum entanglement..”

“Why do you think light was absent? B/c you couldn't see?”

NevaforLeadership on Dec 8, 2013 at 18:00:28

“Did you know there is no color in the world. Just pigments and different light waves. Our brains transform the different light wave lengths reflected from different pigments into color. So color all happens only in our minds.

The change of color in chameleons is produced by hormones triggered by their nervous systems. The hormones react with pigment layers in their skin, producing different colors. Remember, only our brains perceive the color.

The sounds we hear are a variation on the same kind of theme. There is no sound in the world; only in our minds, produced by our brain's interpretation of the different sound waves. When a tree falls in a forest, if there is no one around to interpret the sound waves, there is no sound.”

“Chameleons can't change their color to match their surroundings. That is a myth, but they can probably change their colors according to light intensity, so since it was dark outside the dark color of the chameleon superficially blended in with your railing.

“There is a two minute video of "Cuttlefish: Chameleons of the Sea " that demonstrates the ability to mimic the color and texture of the background. As for your chameleon, it may have been hiding on or under the railing during the daytime or maybe it can see in the dark when you can't. :-)”

“Very cool. But the question is not only can they see at night. But... How do they "know" what color to be, when there is no color absent from light???”

“Republicans are trying to hide behind the fiction that these new jobs are all from temporary, holiday hiring. They seem unable to understand the words "seasonally adjusted" whereby the BLS takes out holiday jobs and only reports permanent jobs, eliminating the holiday effect.

That being true, some GOP politicians are falling back on the unproved assertion that the BLS is simply lying about the numbers.”
