Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Here’s the TKPOTD from three years ago today. Kimberlin’s motion that it presents is full of lies, and it misstates the law related to discovery in the case.

* * * * *

Yesterday afternoon, I posted the online docket entry for this—

I don’t plan to make any substantive public statement about this motion in any form other than a court paper until after the court has ruled on it.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

* * * * *

One the most transparent lies in the motion was the claim that I didn’t allege damages until over a year after I filed the lawsuit.

After enumerating losses I suffered and costs I incurred, paragraph 33 of my complaint states, “Thus, Mr. Hoge suffered actual damages.” Similarly, paragraph 62 damages suffered and ends with, “Thus, Mr. Hoge suffered actual damages,” as does paragraph 71.

The Gentle Reader should not be surprised that the court denied The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s motion.

Certain Sections That I Wouldn’t Advise You to Invade


As I’m drinking my second cup of coffee this morning, I’m finding pictures on the Interwebz of an armed couple confronting a BLM mob outside of their house. This may become a more common scene as the ongoing marxist lunacy tries to metastasize to the interior of the country.

While Rick Blaine’s advice to a couple of totalitarian thugs may no longer apply in New York, it still holds true in most of America.

It’s even true in certain parts of Maryland.

M87


The halo of galaxy Messier 87The giant elliptical galaxy Messier 87 is surrounded by a huge halo. An increase in brightness in the top-right part of this halo and the motion of planetary nebulae in the galaxy are the last remaining signs of a medium-sized galaxy that collided with M87.

This wide field image also contains many other galaxies forming the Virgo Cluster, of which Messier 87 is the largest member. The two galaxies at the edge of the top right of the frame are nicknamed “the Eyes.”

Through the years, Bill Schmalfeldt has done some mind-bogglingly stupid things. This INMTUYN post from four years ago deals with one of his dumbest.

I received this email a few minutes ago.

The temptation to engage in PLM concerning this is great, but I’m disabling comments on this post in order to keep from educating the monkey.

It didn’t take the court long to deny the petition.

A Note to the Iconoclastic Rioters


Before you pull down another monument to someone you despise, consider this story from the Soviet Union—

A village was surprised to find they had some surplus funds, so a meeting was called to determine what to spend them on. One group wanted to build a statue of Stalin. The other wanted to build a foot bridge over the creek so the village children would not have to ford the stream coming and going to school. The debate was heated, and the vote was equally divided, but one of the village elders had not participated. He was asked to break the tie.

“Grandfather,” they asked, “what shall we do?”

He replied, “Let’s build the statue and let the pigeons speak for us.”

This TKPOTD from five years ago today dealt with a couple of the minor players on Team Kimberlin.

I see from the comment section that Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson has graciously given me permission to sue him and 57F Osborne. Perhaps I shall, although if I do, it won’t be on his schedule. I shall file at a time of my choosing. I shall choose the forum.

As a somewhat more successful musician than Willam Ferguson once noted,

You can’t always get what you want,
But if you try, sometime you find
You get what you need.

Well, I’m Glad That’s Done


The Real Wold has been imposing itself on my life more than usual this week. I’m a member of a team designing (and eventually building and testing) a widget that will be part of a robot mission for NASA. Today, a Preliminary Design Review was conducted on our progress. I was one of out team’s presenters at the review. Over the past week, I put in about 60 hours of work with the team getting our presentation together, and that took a lot of time out of my other activities, including blogging.

BTW, we passed the review.

I’m gonna go get a good night’s sleep.
