We are as snug as a bug in a rug here. No power interruptions although it flickered a few times last night. We are expecting a high temperature in the upper 40s this afternoon so much of the ice in the trees will come down.
How are you folks west of me doing?
|I stuck about a dozen rosemary sprigs yesterday. I did a quick-dip of 1000 PPM borax solution as some literature suggests that boron helps rooting.|
|The onions are sprouting. If you enlarge the picture you will see very pale, worm-like shapes. Those are the onions. I have a red LED on the pepper seeds which raises the temperature from 65F to almost 80F.|
The war on fertilizer
I wonder how much of the elites' war on fertilizer, specifically nitrogen, is tied to the fact that nitrates are a keystone resource in the manufacture of high-explosives?
If I were an elite and I anticipated a class-war, Us-against-the havenots, I would outlaw nitrates and ammonia (which can be converted to nitrates).
Blackpowder is 75% potassium nitrate by weight. Smokeless powder is cellulose nitrate. The first "T" and the "N" in TNT is "Tri-Nitrate". RDX, the primary explosive in C4 also has three nitrate groups bound by a nitrogen ring and so on and so forth.
A pound of C4 or TNT properly configured on the bottom of a manhole cover will breach any armored vehicle made today.
"But you can collect nitrates from chicken-shit" you object...
Don't look now, but elites don't like chickens, either (somewhat tongue-in-cheek)
Bananas and babies
Southern Belle informed me that this is how all of the cool mothers feed bananas to their infants.
They cut them into quarters and then expose about a 1/2" to 3/4" of the edible part. It gives their child and easy-to-grip handle.
Quicksilver is into "finger foods" like strips of toast, firm scrambled-eggs and dog kibbles.
