    Yes along with a Mcintosh 240 Tube amp, Mcintosh tuner/preamp, and Ohm Walsh speakers! But I like this photo from Ferris Bueller's day off!

    A water bearer in India had two large pots, each hung on each end of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, and while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to the master's house, the cracked pot arrived only half full. For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water to his master's house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of it's accomplishments, perfect to the end for which it was made. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of it's own imperfection, and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do. After two years of bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream. "I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you." "Why?" asked the bearer. "What are you ashamed of?" "I have been able, for these past two years, to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your master's house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work and you don't ge full value from your efforts," the pot said. The water bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot, and in his compassion he said, "As we return to the master's house, I want you to notice the beautiful flowers along the path." Indeed, as they went up the hill, the old cracked pot took notice of the sun warming the beautiful wild flowers on the side of the path, and this cheered it some. But at the end of the trail, it still felt bad because it had leaked out half it's load, and so again it apologized to the bearer for it's failure. The bearer said to the pot, "Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of your path, but not on the other pot's side? That's because I have always known about your flaw, and I took advantage of it. I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back from the stream, you've watered them. For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate my master's table. Without you being just the way you are, he would not have this beauty to grace his house."

    Do not trust JHU. Take lots of grains of salt. They are in league with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, among other large corporate interests, that are seeking dramatic social and medical control of the people. Beware of Bill Gates. He's made it plain in his own words that he intends to make vaccines mandatory, control populations, and of course control travel. His involvement in Africa and Asia is evident for anyone to see for themselves. Link to my source: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/COVID19/index.htm The CDC lags with their results because they need to be confirmed by the NCHS.

    This technology is here in the US. I worked on it. There's a lot of demand for it by City Governments to 'stop crime'.

    If they are in lockdown, then they're just following the international paradigm. Right now, if you don't lockdown, you're insanely criticized and labeled a murderer. All nations are expected to destroy their economies and force horrible suffering and death upon the poor to avoid the covid-19 death count tally. It's pretty clear that all nations are being judged by their deaths...regardless of population, culture or sophistication. I typed 'India coronavirus response' into Google and...I give up. India is being torn to shreds by the media. I don't know enough about India's government to judge their response, all I know is that the more they destroy their economy, the more they will be praised by the mainstream media. Going into lockdown is not a state of preparedness - it's the opposite. The entire world was caught off guard by this disease because of the gross misinformation by the WHO and CCP. Good on Taiwan and South Korea for telling them to fuck off and respond aggressively from the beginning. To what cost to their people and economy...we don't know yet. This huge problem is still in its infancy in the chains of cause and effect. The West is going to retaliate against the CCP though. They can no longer be trusted in world economic supply chain. They fucked over Europe really bad. I'll take the risks of freedom over tyrannical control of information, and this current pandemic is an excellent example of why (ie, CCP). Some people might not really like freedom...and there are places in the world for them to live if they prefer government control over what they see, hear and consume. In the United States, we should accept the risks of freedom. There is nothing more valuable to the human spirit than freedom - as messy as it can become sometimes. Perhaps we are late in our response, but in 6 months, we might be saving the world. We shall see. I'm not convinced the virus was manufactured, but we still don't know how it came to be. The information is, so far, not released by China, and is the most valuable information in the world right now. The 5G controversy is, unfortunately, a legitimate fear. I'm not convinced 5G is 'good' while in the hands of the very, very few that possess it. The behavior of the big tech companies in all this has been very concerning and frightening. It's their fault if people are pissed at them. You can't control information and access like they do and expect to be trusted. They don't even have a good propaganda campaign to easy the fear...they just do whatever the hell they want to. They have become the world's 'Zalem'. The high tower of elite that are above all criticism and defiance.

    India has a nationwide lockdown, and is considered the world's largest democracy. However, cops still beat ordinary citizens for being out on the street during such times. 😜 There should be a semblance of logic and rationality, which seems to have evaporated with misinformation galore. Nearly 30% of Americans believe coronavirus was made in a lab, Pew poll shows Masts set on fire over false 5G coronavirus claims Lessons Learned from the 1918–1919 Influenza Pandemic in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota from NIH is a very good read.

    In a semi-fictitious vein, I discovered Person Of Interest on Netflix. This series ran on CBS from 2011-2017. It's about a group of individuals using this sort of surveillance technology to protect individuals. The stories are pretty good, with occasional bits about how the tech works. Interesting show.

    Herbert Jeffrey "Herbie" Hancock (1940) Hancock is a jazz and funk pianist, composer, and bandleader who emerged as part of Miles Davis's group in the mid-1960s. An early adopter of electronic instruments, he became involved with funk and disco in the 70s, while continuing to tour with jazz groups, such as that of Wynton Marsalis. He won an Academy Award for his original score of the 1986 film 'Round Midnight and has won 14 Grammys, including "Album of the Year" for a work that paid tribute to what fellow musician?

    There are huge benefits and concerns with this type of technology. The US is one of the last places to embrace it - but as the older populace dies off and the younger folks take the helm you can rest assured it will be deployed here in mass fashion as well. There are two prices associated with surveillance of this type - personal privacy invasion and the actual cost of the video system. Surveillance systems like that are BILLIONS of dollars - figure at least $2,500 per camera when you compute labor, hardware, wiring, network connectivity, storage arrays, servers to record, analytics running on those servers, data centers to house the MASSIVE infrastructure, electrical power, people to man and manage the system, etc. In a nationwide deployment, in a country as large as China, the cost is likely much higher than my estimate. If that system were to be deployed here who do you think would be footing the bill? That's right - the taxpayers. You have to ask yourself - what price am I willing to pay for the feeling of safety / security?

    The true threat, is mentioned only briefly, at about 12:20 - smart phones. it's the full complement/family of sensors constantly capturing data about everyone. All the cameras and surveillance mentioned in the body of the video, is nothing to the voluntary capture of information we give up addicted to our phones. Snowden exposed some of it..., Phones are tracking movement (GPS), listening (microphone) and the camera is capturing video, 24/7. People just don't realize it. Yes, someone knows how many times you go to the restroom, grocery store, Home Depot, Walmart, the routes you take, and whether the speed you are going is slower (traffic), equal to, or faster (clear road) than the speed limit... If you don't believe it, how do you think Google, or Waze, knows about traffic you should avoid. If you don't think the data is getting sold, why do ads pop on your feeds different than other people?..., Ask questions, and look for connections, the evidence is strong.

    Just a little humor for those who like to tell jokes Little Johnny joke... A teacher was teaching her second grade class about the government, so for homework that one day, she told her students to ask their parents what the government is. When Little Johnny got home that day, he went up to his dad and ask his what the government was. His dad thought for a while and answered, "Look at it this way: I'm the president, your mom is Congress, your maid is the work force, you are the people and your baby brother is the future." "I still don't get it" responded the Little Johnny. "Why don't you sleep on it then? Maybe you'll understand it better," said the dad. "Okay then...good night" said Little Jonny went off to bed. In the middle of the night, Little Johnny was awakened by his baby brother's crying. He went to his baby brother's crib and found that his baby brother had taken a crap in his diaper. So Little Johnny went to his parent's room to get help. When he got to his parent's bedroom, he looked through the keyhole to check if his parents were asleep. Through the keyhole he saw his mom loudly snoring, but his dad wasn't there. So he went to the maid's room. When he looked through the maid's room keyhole, he saw his dad having sex with his maid. Little Johnny was surprised, but then he just realized something and thinks aloud, "OH!! Now I understand the government! The President is screwing the work force, Congress is fast asleep, nobody cares about the people, and the future is full of shit!"

    A woman awoke during the night to find that her husband was not in bed. She put on her robe and went downstairs. He was sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee in front of him. He appeared to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall. She saw him wipe a tear from his eye and take a sip of his coffee. "What's the matter dear? Why are you down here at this time of night?" she asked. "Do you remember twenty years ago when we were dating and you were only 16?" he asked. "Yes, I do," she replied. "Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car making out?" "Yes, I remember." "Do you remember when he shoved that shotgun in my face and said, 'Either you marry my daughter or spend twenty years in jail?'" "Yes, I do," she said. He wiped another tear from his cheek and said, "You know...I would have gotten out today." source: http://www.jokes4us.com/dirtyjokes/divorcejokes.html
