Eclipse of the Sun8/20
Mark Twain wrote about eclipse of the sun in Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.
The story was a about a foreman in a munitions factory in New England during the nineteenth century.
The local people were very superstitious and apprehensive about his clothing.
The protagonist somehow figured out that on this day in history there had also been another total eclipse of the sun.
He was now as powerful as Merlin so sat on the right side of the King, equal to Merlin as an advisor.
Since he already knew about all future technology his first act as Royal Boss was to create a patent office “Because a country without a patent office is like a crab. It can only move sideways”.
Time passed and Twain’s guy created a parallel society. To populate this parallel civilization he had pluck children at birth from their parent’s.
As time went on this parallel society developed Universities, telegraph lines, gun powder etc.
The wizard didn’t like it when the Boss was getting the ear of the king.
The Boss recognized that a mass-distraction would need to happen.
The Wizard was kind of a predictable dude. He liked to bluster a lot and tended to ad lib a little too much.
He asked the wizard to back up his claims and of course the wizard had nothing tangible to offer.
Upon pointing towards the castle one of his students from the STEM program replicated the experiment Tom Jefferson did with the kite and the lightning.
Life was pretty calm for a while after that. Society was starting to improving for everybody. The serfs were getting a piece of the prosperity but soon decided they weren’t getting enough.
The knights came for years and years from everywhere in Europe. Armed with a sword and jousting spear they sought to avenge injustice.
The bodies attracted the rats. The rats brought the bubonic plague and civilization was plunged into the dark ages.
I think I need to party with you sometime.
The evil overlord is the customer.
You and Twain muddy the waters.
If you work as much as you post I don't know when you sleep.
Cabmaker, do you even own a shop ?
Why are you getting your underwear all bunched up? This is a timely topic. Haven't you been following the news?
From an outsider's perspective all you need to be successful in a cabinet shop is customers, materials, information, equipment, a crew that knows how to get it done and all this in the building at the same time. That's like lining up the earth, the moon & the sun. Enjoy it while it lasts.
And then there is Charlottesville with all these European knights converging to defend a feudal system only to meet a gatling gun that doxed them on social media.
This is not exactly rocket surgery.
iz that you RD ???
