Late Summer

Filed under: Circle Game — williamthecoroner @ 13:39

The earth spins on though the void–and things change.  You know summer is winding down when you start hearing the cicadas buzzing in the trees, and thumping down when they fall onto the driveway.

But it is coming on to fall.  The marching band can be heard playing scales or destroying Cayuga’s Waters in the mornings.  The football teams are practicing, and the first game was this Saturday.  And this morning I woke up with a cat on my head.  It was cool for the fist night in a while.

Blue Angels

Filed under: Life, the universe, & everything. — williamthecoroner @ 17:33

Four to six  Blue Angels have beenb flying around my house for the past couple of days.  No, not the above blue angel, F/A 18 Hornets. The Cleveland Air show is this weekend.  I did get a chance to see a B17G moving under its own power, which is always exciting. It’s the Yankee Girl--unfortunately they’re not giving rides over the weekend.

The Moscow Rules

Filed under: Life, the universe, & everything.,Links to Greatness — williamthecoroner @ 21:49

Mentioned by CIA master of disguise Tony Mendez, a probably apocryphal list of rules to live by, demonstrating Condition Yellow.  Not a bad condition to be in the world at large.  It’s a dangerous place.

  • Assume nothing.
  • Murphy is right.
  • Never go against your gut; it is your operational antenna.
  • Don’t look back; you are never completely alone.
  • Everyone is potentially under opposition control.
  • Go with the flow, blend in.
  • Vary your pattern and stay within your cover.
  • Any operation can be aborted. If it feels wrong, it is wrong.
  • Maintain a natural pace.
  • Lull them into a sense of complacency.
  • Build in opportunity, but use it sparingly.
  • Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.
  • Don’t harass the opposition.
  • There is no limit to a human being’s ability to rationalize the truth.
  • Technology will always let you down.
  • Pick the time and place for action.
  • Keep your options open.
  • Once is an accident. Twice is coincidence. Three times is an enemy action.
  • If you see it for sale, and it is unique get it.

Very few things are unique in the age of mass production.  Use your head.
