Fact Checker

Ji Dzar ….. Fact checker

Ji Dzar  …..   Fact checker

All the cooking and giblet facts are almost mostly 100% accurate.

I have not tried cooking the gizzard diaper … I do not plan to cook the diaper …. Not even as an experiment … I do not recommend anyone cooking the gizzard diaper.

The bit about natural emulsifiers was just a guess based on appearances   …. The water and oil mixed …. Emulsifiers make oil and water mix.

We are not able to provide fact checking on the Chinese at this time …. There is a shortage of Chinese Checkers.

Tomato Resistant Armor

The part about the shirt being tomato resistant  …. It isn’t false advertising … you can’t sue me ….   It is just an old advertising trick  …resistant is a good word without a precise definition …. It doesn’t take much to be resistant ….  a shirt doesn’t need to be very tough to resist a little tomato juice  … if I had said tomato proof you might have a case.

The Borg taught us that resistance is futile.

I don’t think that the Burger King is a real person … just another advertising trick ….. I suppose the King image was intended to add prestige.

The part about the armor was also an advertising trick … it was designed to make you curious so you would read the rest of the post.

There may be someone out there who would like to throw decomposing tomatoes at the author …. Perhaps I do need Tomato resistant armor.

Fact checker for the fact checker

Who are The Borg …. That came from Star Trek …  The Borg were some socialistic civilization where everyone’s minds were controlled by the collective … their motto was  …. “Resistance is futile, you shall be assimilated”

I recommend that you not be assimilated …. Assimilated people don’t make a very good audience.

A  CURE FOR POLITICAL STRIFE

Yup   ….    there is such a person as Richard Trumka … he was an attorney for the united mine workers … then worked for the AFL-CIO  … he escaped punishment for some scandals then became head of the AFL-CIO  … he is still active in labor politics and still is liberal

Woops  … I know  …. I am not supposed to use real people’s real names …  if I get in trouble …..  I guess I will plead the fifth amendment like Richard Trumka did.

New Fact Checker Page

It seems that certain individuals have been uncertain about certain things that have been written in certain posts … in an effort to make it easier for certain uncertain persons  … I am instituting a fact checker …. If any uncertain individuals would like to become certain about the facts  …. You may check the fact checker page and find the section for that particular post ….. many things may be explained  ….  vague references from bygone eras ….  Unscientific explanations of scientific phenomenon  ….. definitions of some obscure words  …. Checked facts about my checkered past ….  And  …. Whatever else I decide to put in there …. there will also be information about things which are not actual facts  … things like made up stuff, fabrications and fibrications.

This whole fact checking apparatus will also facilitate the writing process of the author … I won’t need to be so careful … I can throw in any obtuse reference I want  …. kind of selfish of me isn’t it  … I will have the peace of mind of knowing that any of you can consult the fact checker and relieve your anxieties … yes you can become certain about certain uncertain things  ….

All previous posts have now been fact checked  … they were fact checked by the person with the greatest knowledge about the posts  …. Me  … I found them to be quite accurate  …. And … in the cases where they were not accurate there was a good reason

If things get real bad we might be forced to fact check the fact checker

How to remove excess sugar from excess doughnuts

This post is a mix of science and opinion

Diffusion is real

Rottification is a made up word … but it is an accurate description of what could happen

Flaying is the same process for animals or doughnuts … flaying removes the hide

I don’t think a doughnut steamer exists yet … however, a creative person could adapt the use of several other appliances to this function.

The aisle 1 problem

I made up a few words for this post

I think you can tell what they are

When I edited this post it looked different

When I posted it the font changed  …. Gaaaaaaaa

This made it such that some of the stuff I said made no sense …. So I had to go back and edit it again

……………………

Forty below is forty below

All the stuff about b-staging and pre-preg is real stuff

The stuff about cold tar  …. Well there may have been a little fibrication there ….

There was an old saying that someone or something was “slower than cold tar” ….

Tar does run slower as it cools ….  It appears to stop  …. And it does stop if it is cold enough  ….

The idea of the flow rate going into negative numbers and flowing uphill or backwards is a mathematical farce  …. It doesn’t really happen  …. I thought it was funny….

As tar gets colder it will just get more hard and more brittle  …. Kind of like steel … it you get steel cold enough  …. Way below the glass transition temperature of steel  … the steel becomes brittle and can shatter like glass  …. And that my friend is way colder than slow tar.

Oops … my simplification got carried away

The glass transition temperature is real  ….

A slowometer isn’t real  …. That I know of … they keep inventing new stuff you would never suspect  …

maybe if you ran a speedometer backwards  …. No

forty below really is forty below  …. Look at the pictures of my balloon thermometer

New uses for an old roofing material …..

mouth roofing that is

A true incident

Polymers are compounds like rubber and plastic

Polymers are made of many small identical units  … the unit is called a mer

Cross-linking is the way elastic polymers bond together as they cure … rather than in a crystal structure it is more like a bunch of chains that link together in a 3 dimensional net … so the stuff can be stretched  in all different directions and not break  … an example of an elastomer is rubber

Buccal cavity is doctor talk for the mouth

Rancid  or rancidification  …  fats and edible oils oxidize  … the fat molecules change into smaller stinky stuff  … that is why rancid oils smell and taste bad  … keeping the oxygen away helps to slow the process

……………………….

My new name

Another advertisement and a little whining

The bottom line is there are two URLs that will take you to the same site

Iksperimentalist.com     and ikspy.com

Radiating pain

Radiating pain is doctor talk for pain that is felt somewhere other than the source.

The radius and the ulna are the two bones in the forearm

…………….

Ik with three eyes

Nothing here to explain

Except perhaps the dead people and Transylvania comment …

In old vampire movies like Dracula ….   Transylvania was supposedly the place where the vampires lived … according to the story they didn’t ever die  … the Transylvania I was referring to is a region in Romania …. I hear that Transylvania is also a county in North Carolina and a town in Louisiana

…………………..

Snowum Onum Carum

This is kind of like Pig Latin only you just ad um to all of your words ….  I guess I should have called it Jeep Cherokee Latin ….  I don’t want to offend Cherokees or Jeeps … or jeep lovers

The translation is  “snow on car”

The rest of the post is quite accurate …. The part about the garage was conjecture and not intended to cast dispersions on people with or without garages.

………….

An iksperimentalist’s work is never done

Pure philosophy

…………

Highway Buzzards

Just making fun of all those grooves they put on the sides of the road to wake people up …. I guess they can use bumps in places where they don’t use snow plows.

Ok I made the name up ….. I don’t really know what they are called …. It probably is not as good of a name as highway buzzards

………………..

Reflections on life …. Or ….

What’s wrong with me?

DisMexic is a made up word ….

Dyslexic is a real word …. It means trouble reading … in popular culture it is often associated with letter reversals …. Letter reversals is only one aspect of dyslexia

…………………..

Government Counter Culture

It was a joke …. Just a harmless joke …. No need to send the IRS after me.

…………………

Congratulations Dear Reader

Just a whimsical advertisement

………………………….

After all, it is December

It may not be December now but it was when this was posted

This reference is from an old north American winter song which became equated with Christmas … the name is “Jingle bells” …  the line was “over the hills they go, laughing all the way.”

I liked the notion of being over the hill …. It is similar to being around the bend.

Laws of Physics verified by a balloon thermometer

The incidents described in this post really happened.

The offset is the difference between the thermometer reading and the actual temperature

There was a line about the thermometer knowing something … thermometers don’t really know stuff … I just put that in there as an attempt at humor and to keep the reader awake.

The line about natural selection was meant as a joke …. I realize that natural selection is something that only happens within a species … thermometer is not a species.

The line about city people wasn’t to malign people from any particular city  …. I was just drawing on broad generalities of differences between people who mostly live in cities  or mostly live in rural settings  … I think I am getting into a deeper hole ….

The next lines make it obvious that I had been online to look at temperatures …. I guess that may behavior I learned while living in some of the biggest cities in the world

I trust my thermometers more than I trust the online weather guesses …. Over the years I have documented that the guesses are usually higher than what I experience at my house  …. I have some temperature loggers that I use to record what actually happened … besides that I have some knowledge about where the online data comes from ….  They just get data from NASA’s weather satellites and use computer models and historical information to predict the future temperatures  …. The predictions also cover a wide area

Woops I gave my garage sale strategies away ….  You may try them at home  … but  …  I am not responsible for any of your misadventures or messadventures

Look at the picture  …. I wasn’t lying about the balloons

“It Stopped short never to go again when the old man died” was from a song “My Grandfathers Clock”

Two pictures of the frozen thermometer …. You will notice that the inside thermometer shows the needle exactly above the freezing point  …. The zero is obscured  …. In the outside picture you can see the zero …. The needle is really in the same place … the outside picture was shot from an angle so you can see the zero …. That is a good example of parallax …. Parallax is good to know about when a disagreement about the speedometer in a car comes up ….

ReJersifying a milkshake

Rejersifying is a word I made up

Jersifying is also a made up concept

The part about me being refined is not true …. I supposed that most people would realize that it was a joke

This post is an opinion piece that contains real facts ….

To the best of my knowledge the facts are true … the opinions however are debatable

The reference to “Wet Ones” was something that was premeditated and was not intended to defame any particular brand of poopy diaper changing product

…………..

Peeling appealing beets

The beet stuff is mostly true except the part about warts and zits …. Warts and zits grow on people not on beets  … I just used that as a literary device to add interest …. (not the kind of interest that banks charge)

I don’t know the real names of beet deformities  …  I have seen beet deformities and know that they exist

Beets don’t go through puberty … mammals do have puberty … I don’t think other animals do

The mark of the beets was a word play on the “mark of the beast” that is talked about in the Bible  … in the book of Revelation

…………………

Wind and doors

The stuff about wind and doors and sails is real

Wind does have awesome power

The stuff about sharks is made up

It was a word play on dorsal fin

The dorsal fin is real … it is the fin on the sharks back that sometimes is seen sticking out of the water in horror films

…………………….

Oxymorons

Oxymoron is a real word

I made the rest of the stuff up

…………………………………..

Look again

Werewife is a word I made up

It was a word play on werewolf

Werewolf is a word that was made up a long time ago

……………………………………………

First post    ….  E coli and mud marbles

E coli is real

It is one of the coliform bacteria

It is a very common bacteria

A few strains of E coli are dangerous and can cause food poisoning

Most strains of E coli are harmless

There are zillions of them in your digestive tract

E coli help your digestion and some strains produce vitamin K

There are zillions of them in your poop

(zillions is a vague word that means lots of millions or billions or trillions, etc)

Water analysts count coliform bacteria to determine contamination levels

Large quantities of coliform bacteria indicate fecal contamination which indicates that other harmful bacteria may be present.  So don’t drink it.

I made up the part about e coli being poilite … I doubt they have even heard of Emily Post

Emily Post was from a bygone era …. She thought herself to be an authority on manners

The part about eating the whole earth is sort of true … let me explain …. If a mass of  bacteria food was as big as the whole earth …. And … conditions were right …. They could reproduce enough to consume the whole mass in a short time  …. This doesn’t happen in real life because the designer knew about bacterial appetites … he put lots of inhibitors in the system … the main inhibitors are acids and carbon dioxide  …. These are waste products from bacteria’s lunch … in other words … the bacteria poop gets concentrated ….  the bacteria lose their appetite … they can’t eat or reproduce ….  they just wait around till it rains or something else happens  to dilute the soup … with lower concentrations of waste products the bacteria start to eat and reproduce … it is a wonderful design

I will give more explanations when I write about pickle experiments.

I don’t really know how long it takes after a virus attacks a cell before it  turns it into a virus factory  … I am speculating that it takes a lot longer than 20 minutes …. I need to do more research on this item

The mud marble story is true … I told the story as I remember it.

Thank you for your attention
