Thinks Can Be Different Here >>

EPISODE #215

AIRED: 12-10-2019

An amazingly apropos typo by The Alan Holman today in chat led to this snazzy show title…and sums up an idea that is so central to the exact reason we do what we do when we do Ironworx! We may all reflect similar thoughts on Fake Space and the Shape of our Realm, but we walked different paths to arrive at this point in the Strealm. It is very reassuring to feel the love and acceptance which allows us as hosts and you as chatters and listeners to participate freely, openly and cathartically express all those thoughts that keep us up at night…
–One sleep-stealing thought that probably never even tip-toed acrossed your mind: “There might be someone living in my crawlspace.” Josh stops all our hearts collectively with the revelation that his mom currently has a squatter cohabitating in her home. She has to make noise exiting the bathroom so they will leave!! WTActualF???
–European Space Agency Approves Mission to Yoink a Piece of Trash Out of Orbit…in 5 years. Yoink.
–$249,384.25 United States Dollars. That’s your Black Friday price-slashed deal of the Century! 3 days of ACTUAL training before you BLAST OF for SPACE!! For reals. “On the way down, the space rockets will occupy several positions and do different maneuvers and rotations.” Yoink, indeed.
–“Remarkably, although like charges repel, like-charged aggregates form nevertheless, apparently because the charges are so strong that they polarize one another and therefore act like magnets.” Yes, a mini Zack rant resulted here…listen!
–First Pig-Monkey Chimeras Were Just Created in China…they say. Walt says see Mankey.
–The Ketamine Secrets of ‘Ecco the Dolphin’

From our good buddy DazGobzine:
advice (always easier to say to others than follow yourself) – all circumstances are neutral – the effect YOU get from that circumstance is dependent on your interpretation of that circumstance – as impossible as it might sound, and if only as stress reduction technique – try to find a possible positive scenario for that circumstance – damn, late for work because of traffic – interpret as ‘bad’ and have a shitty day – interpret as ‘phew I would have got in a wreck if it wasn’t for that traffic’ – you have a great day (thankful for life, etc)

the universe provides circumstances so we can choose how to react

the circumstances allow us, via our interpretation and actions based on the interpretations, to see if we have changed (for the better) – for me – I don’t get pissed off at angry people wanting to vent on the phone at me – I know I have changed because I interpret the circumstance as not personal to me – I try to have empathy – I act as if – and thus my blood pressure is not raised – I still hang up on them if they insult me but I don’t get pissed off

(The ship, give credit to “Alan’s friend Jason.” The boy, give credit to “Alan’s friend Liana.” That should be good.)

MORE FROM Ironworx >>

Leave it to JoFroJer. We don’t see him for weeks. So he pops in, drops a significant brain bomb…then heads out to move weights around. The bomb? Darkness. He posits Dark is faster than Light. Adam and Eve being terrified of the Sun when it showed up comes to mind. Think about all the times...

Josh smashes our perceptions this morning with some pics of perky plants. But one of the plants is…perkier(?) perhaps due to some magical magnetic manipulivity(?), as the pics plainly portray. One simple ceramic magnet slipped neath the glass in the middle of the photo and…well, LOOK!!! –Searle, Searle, Searle. Seems Searle has been seen more...

Are YOU a Jeep-guy? Not so much? How about guitars, that rev your engine? If not cars or guitars, we have Star Wars! Trek? Tech? Ticky? Tacky?? Josh really planted one this morning, wondering about the things we identify with and as, were they ingrained, or implanted? Are we just the sum of all our...

We ask LC King. And Zack. And you! Our guest (and friend!) Lucas is here today, discussing an engine he built. No, this isn’t a modded hot rod engine, or made for bio-diesel, no, this engine runs on water. Yes, water. And just about anything else he threw at it. Zack was explaining the GEET...

I DID say today’s description would be all links! We had so many great comments and links in chat today, including a way to finally find freedom from fiat and be fiscally flush (See Doc’s links below!!) that to have NOT included these links would have been a crime!

We hit the ground hard with feeling this Friday, lots of raw emotion over lots of raw shite. Folks are fed up, as are the hosts, reflected back as we try to keep up with all the genius-level commentary flowing through our flat-chat. –Blood once again seems to be the key, thanx Liz!! Shocking!!! –Sit...
