Advice for Putin re problem-solving methods

Sometimes Senior Statesmen types give advice to foreign leaders. Conceivably, a foreign leader behaving unwisely, could damage US national interests.

When I write computer programs that do cool things, I often face a choice: 1) write the piece of code from scratch; or, 2) refer back to previous programs I've written that do things similar to what I want to do now, and use those pieces of code that have already been written, build on them, modify them.

I find that sometimes I sort of proceed to re-invent the wheel, and choose option 1 when I should be choosing option 2.

This because: it is interesting to write the program from scratch; referring to reference materials when writing the program from scratch allows me to review such info; it is boring to have to sift through past programs and find the pieces of code that do things similar to what I need to do; I figure that I will be able to get the program done about as easily if I write it from scratch; I failed to download a good source-code search-engine (which would help me search through the source code in my programs) because there were too many options and too much controversy so I just gave up.

Whereas actually, the better alternative would be to choose option 2, search through my source code, find a piece of code that does something similar to what I want to do, and modify it.  I end up choosing the inferior option 1 because I delude myself into thinking that the upside of option 1 outweighs the downside. I fail to properly value the time and mental energy that is saved by using option 2. I fail to recognize the value of allowing the mind to rest by doing something relatively simple such as searching through past code.

I suspect that the Russian President Putin, faces the danger of choosing the option 1 type approach (reinventing the wheel, doing everything from scratch in response to a problem) when instead he should be using an option 2 type approach (using modified forms of effective past solutions to similar problems).

Personal Sports Workouts Data Links, New

I felt that: my sports workouts are going to produce quick improvement and spectacular results; things are getting confused what with a blog-post for this or that practice; I should share my workouts data with the taxpayer. So I have created three new pages containing tables, which contain up-todate workout-data for my running, weightlifting, and swimming practices:

Running Workouts Log 2014 David Virgil Hobbs

Weightlifting 2014 Workouts for David Virgil Hobbs

Swim Workouts 2014 for David Virgil Hobbs

I suspect that: for various reasons, workout performance improves when workout-records are well-kept; the willingness to exercise increases when workout-records are well kept.

Ukraine Movie Planned by Senator Blather

I just got a message from Senator Billy Jo Blather. Senator Blather has started working on a movie about the Ukraine. The letter I received:

----- Original Message -----

Subject: Movie about Ukraine I am working on

Davey Hobbs,

I've been studyin' yer Ukraine Data Table  wif interest.
A stroke of junius hit me like a bolt of lightnin'. Whuffo' not cash in on th' trouble in th' Ukraine, wif a noo movie, thet ecksploits th' Ukrainian lack of development of a film indestry. Th' movie I've sketched out is called, Wild-West-Ukraine.

[Added 3/15/14:]

Ivan is th' Rio-Donetsk Metallurgist fum Bear City. Grobnik is th' Pink-River Metalist fum Carpathia City. Ludmilla is th' right purdy woomin fum Waterfall-City near th' interseckshun of th' Blonde-Rivah an' th' Rio Seven-Arrows. Boris Badanov is th' Leninist fum Stalingrad on th' Red-River. Ivan, Grobnik, an' Boris is all in love of Ludmilla.

Ludmilla is fum th' Tatarpaches tribe. She is dexcended fum a Vareengian Russ princess, who back in 1389 A.D., was kidnapped fum a church wif a roof shaped like a towel-haid's turban, by th' Tatarpaches.

Ivan th' metallurgist said t'Grobnik th' Metalist: "This hyar town is not trimenjus inough fo' both of us. Metalists is unejoocayted trash. Us metallurgists haf smarter, mo' trimenjus guns. Git outta town by sundown".
Then said th' Metalist Grobnik: "Acshuns rap louda' dan wo'ds. You's metallurgists is merely pedantic snobs wid advanced degrees. Us Metalists gots real practical wisdom. You's've gots de degrees our guns is better-built and bigger".

Then sad th' Red-Rivah Leninist Bo'is Badanov: "Nu! Loodmeella belungs tu me-a, Borees; becoose-a seence-a guns ere-a illegel, yuoo ere-a nut ellooed tu hefe-a guns, oonly creeminels leeke-a us hefe-a guns".

[Added 3/16/14:]

Now thar was also a man thar named Slavko, who had been ejoocayted in th' United States. Slavko was a miner fum Tomayawk-City on th' banks of th' Silvah Rivah, an' a friend of Grobnik. 

Said Slavko: "None of you are worthy of the hand of Ludmilla in marriage. But I am, because you eat salted pork-fat, which you call 'Salo',  whereas I do not. Scripture says, "Thou Shalt Not Eat the Fat of an Animal". The Book of Leviticus declares, 'It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood...the LORD spake unto Moses, saying...Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Ye shall eat no manner of fat, of ox, or of sheep, or of goat...whosoever eateth the fat of the beast...even the soul that eateth it shall be cut off from his people'. Nowadays any scientist will agree, that eating animal fat causes heart disease and cancer". 

Then said Ivan " how dast yo' insult th' Holy Eastern Orthodox Church, wif this hyar fiddlesticks about animal-fat! Fry mah hide! Our community is Orthodox, an' ev'ryone in our community eats Salo! By insultin' our prackice of eatin' Salo, yer insultin' our Holy Orthodox Patriarchate! Apparently, yer an atheist communist in disguise". 

An' said Grobnik: "Slavko, Ah' dought ya' wuz mah' homey, but now Ah' quesshun wheda' we should meet again. 'S coo', bro. Alderman Pulaski, who pays me t'shuffle sheets, gots a son --- who owns some cocktail lounge; one uh his regular customers at da damn cocktail lounge be de billionaire oligarch Beelzebubsky. And Mr Beelzebubsky's Company Ukrapollo makes 13 puh'cent uh its profit fum de sale uh Salo". 

An' said Bo'is Badanov: "Salo is a staple-a fur zee vurkeeng cless. Yuoor cundemneshun ooff Salo indeecetes yuoo ere-a un inemy ooff zee vurkeeng cless. Foorzeermure-a, I find yuoo gooeelty ooff treesun egeeenst zee Ukreeeniun Sufeeet, becoose-a Germuns und Emereecuns du nut iet Salo, boot us Ukreeeniuns du". 

Th' varmints in th' houses an' apartments an' bars an' restaurants on th' street, heard th' argoomnt between Slavko an' t'others grow loud an' heated. A crowd began t'gather.

[Added 3/17/14:] 

Amongst th' gatherin' crowd, one c'd hear irritated men expressin' their corndemnashun of Slavko: 

"By the Howly Beawrd of His Howiness Saint Awexi, Metwopowitan 
of the Bowdewwands Owthodox Minicephalous Chuwch Tomahawk-City Patwiawchate, he hath bwasphemed"! 

"Us docko's make almost a fif'h of our profits, fum providin' services t'Salo Afficionados". 

"That's 'im over there. He's the bloomin' Nazi 'oo wants ter exterminate blokes 'oo eat Salo". 

"See him-- he's de Jewish rabbi who be secretly conspirin' t'poison de salo supply". 

[Added 3/19/14:]

Th' crowd challenged Slavko. 

"Hey yo', whut is yer name. Is yo' a Ukrainian"? 

Slavko: "My name is Slavko, I am Ukrainian".

"Oh right. Well yer don't sound like a Ukrainian ter me". 

"In our language, say, dig dis: 'Good evenin'. Mah' name be Slavko. Ah' can't rap Ukrainian well. Ah' duzn't eat pork. Ah' wanna rap t'a lawyer'. Den tell us de name uh de greatest socca' playa' of all time. Hint, dig dis: he wuz uh course Ukrainian, he wuz de wo'ld's most handsome man, and he owned some pistol dat he himself built, which wuz made out uh de wo'ld's strongest metal from Kiev; no pistol had some barrel as long and as thick as his". 

Slavko: "Dohbryh Vyehchuhr. Neenyah zahvoot Slavko. Yah nee guhvahryoo pah Ookrahyin. Yah ne svihnihnoo. Yah hahchoo puhguhvahreet s ahdvukahtuhm (Good evening. My name is Slavko. I ca'nt speak Ukrainian well. I want to speak to a lawyer). The greatest soccer player of all time, was Igor of Lugansk".

"Eha! Boot us Ukreeeniuns vuoold sey, 'Dohbrihy vehcheer. Mehnen zvoot Slavko. Yah neh hohvohryoo Ookrahyin. Yah nee yehm sveeneenoo. Yah khohchoo pohhohvohrihtih zuh ahdvohkahtohm (Good evening. My name is Slavko. I ca'nt speak Ukrainian well. I want to speak to a lawyer)'. Und ve-a vuoold sey Ihor ooff Luhansk, nut Igor ooff Lugansk. Zee leengooistic deefffference-a betveee Ukreeeniuns und Roosseeuns, ixceeds zee geneteec deefffference-a betveeen hoomuns und cheempunzees". 

Slavko: Slavko: My father's parents were Ukrainian. My mother's father was a Russian who married my mother's Ukrainian mother. I was raised by my mother's Russian father, from whom I acquired a Russian accent. My parents were identified as enemies of the working class and shot because they were beautiful. All my grandparents except my Russian grandfather, were liquidated as enemies of the state when Satanovsky decided that those with a genetic predisposition to saintliness are enemies of the state.

"So yo' reckon yo' kin evade yer fate, by posin' as a pitiable o'phan"? 

[Added 3/19/14:]

Crowd:  "De fine beautiful-people sucka's wuz freeze-dried cuz' all dudes are equal. Since all dudes are equal, it be not possible, dat da damn pasteurizashun uh BPs could damage da damn Socialist Republic. Co' got d' beat"! 

"It's likes, ya' gots one hundred cubes dat is all equal. You's homogenize fifteen uh dem, ya' duzn't miss de homogenized ones, cuz' de eighty-five dat is left behind, is all de equal uh de fifteen dat wuz homogenized. And since da damn cubes breed likes rabbits, in some couple uh years ya' is back t'one hundred cubes again. 'S coo', bro". 

"Th' result of th' presence of Beautiful Persons, is thet varmints begin t'believe thet all min are NOT equal, Ah reckon. Forces thet oppose th' equality of man, muss be suppressed".

"It is a wewl-known pwinciple of sociawist psychowogy, that beautifuw people make those who awre near them feew uncomfowtable, due to a phenomenon known as the contrast-effect. Contwast-effect wesults in discomfowt for the non-beautiful when in pwoximity to the beautiful, because the beautifuw make the non-beautifuw feel ugly. It is ouw duty as honowabwe sociawists, to minimize the psychowogicawly deweterious impact contwast-effect has upon ouw cadwes". 

Slavko: When we have to judge persons we do not know, we must proceed from the assumption that they are equal in terms of voice, personality, and intelligence. Therefore, the beautiful person should be treated as a person who is equal in terms of voice personality and intelligence compared to persons who are not beautiful, and who in addition to this equality, possesses the quality of beauty. 

Crowd: "This Slavko says that beautiful blokes should be treated as if they are special. But 'ow many tarts are beautiful, isit? One in twenty, then, eh, luv? Toleration of this Slavko, can only lead ter weakness for the Socialist Republic".

[Added 3/25:] 

Th' demeano' of th' crowd was beginnin' t'unnerve Slavko. Mentally he cornsidered th' alternatives. He hit upon idea. Sho'ly this hyar type'd be impressed eff'n he told them th' truth about his weightlif'in' achievements. 

Slavko: "OK, so to hell with beauty and saints. Coming back down to earth, I rank ninth in the Border-Lands in weightlifting".

Badanov: "Zeere-a are-a oonly oone-a meelliun males here-a in Reefer-Bunk Ceety, capeetel ceety ooff zee Burderlunds. Mezeemeteecelly speekeeng, oonly zeru pueent four five-a males in Reefer-Bunk Ceety ranks in zee top nine emungst males in all ooff Burderlunds.  Zeereffore-a thees Slavko has ou legeetimete-a standeeng in Reefer-Bunk Ceety und shuoold be-a treeted et best es a non-inteety".

Crowd: "If more dan zero poit five of Ribeh-Bank City's one million men cudd be expeckid to rank in the, duh uhh, top nine in webuhitelifftingg nashunal like Slavko, den webuh mite habe room f' one such fellow".  

Grobnik: "However, less dan zero point five posishuns kin be reserved fo' sucka's such as Slavko in River-Bank City, cuz' only 0.45 of de dudes of River-Bank City, kin be madematically 'espected t'rank in de top nine nashunally". 

Badanov: "Zeereffore-a thees Slavko shuoold be-a un ooffffeeciel non-inteety et best in Reefer-Bunk Ceety. Grunteeng Slavko ooffffeeciel status es un inteety in Reefer-Bunk Ceety, vuoold be-a seemply unffair tu all zee men ooff Reefer-Bunk Ceety, vhu du nut rank in zee top nine-a neshunelly". 

Crowd: "We must insist on pwopowtionaw wepwesentation. Eighty five pewcent of Wivew-Bank City is Ukwainian, and so eighty-five pewcent of jobs in Wivew-Bank City shouwd go to Ukwainians. Oh, dat scwewy Slavko! And so awso, we cannot ovew-wepwesent men who rank in the top nationawwy amongst weightwiftews, in Wivew-Bank City".

[Added 3/29] 

Metroproletarian Minicephalov: "De incowwuptibwe judges of the Sociawist Wepubwic, despite theiw deep sense of offense wif wegawds to Swavko's snobbery wif wegawds to beauty, saintwiness, and weightwifting, 
have made an impawtiaw judgement and awawded a scowe to Slavko fow the Sociawist Aptitude Test. 
De scale used fow each of the five categowies was zewo to ten, wif zewo wepwesenting howwibwe, five avewage, and ten excewwent". 

Slavko, hearin' these wo'ds, felt as eff'n his stomach had suddenly become hyper-caffeinated. He didnt speck much 'cept sumpin like th' death sentence. 

Grobnik: "De hono'able judges rate Slavko, as some ten fo' voice, some ten fo' intelligence, and some ten fo' appearance".

This hyar Slavko breathed him  uh sigh o' releef.

"Wow thanks. When I was a kid everyone made fun of me for singing out of tune".

Metroproletarian Minicephalov: "As fow Swavko's pewsonawity and Usefuwness to the Sociawist Wepubwic, the judges wewe not abwe to come to a decision". 

Slavko thunk: "hard to believe, that they would have the maturity to be careful regarding judging invisible things like personality and socialist utility".

Metroproletarian Minicephalov: "Howevew, ouw judges wewe bound to uphowd the sacwed pwincipwe of the eqwawity of men. De theowy of Rewative Eqwilibwium as fiwst pwopounded by hewo of the Sociawist Wepubwic Jeffewsonofsky, is standawd doctwine fow Sociaw Wepubwicans. Oh, dat scwewy Slavko! De theowy infawwibwy pwocwaims that those who weceive scores in the Sociawist Aptitude Test, must all scowe between twenty and thiwty in total". 

[Edito's note: This hyar on account o' an avarage score of five in etch of th' five diffrunt catego'ies, voice, varmintality, appeareence, intellyjunce, an' socialist utility, comes t'a total of twenty-five]. 

Boris Badanov: "Zeereffore-a seence-a Slavko's tutel fur voice-a, appeerunce-a, und intelleegence-a vas thirty, Zee Theeury ooff Releteefe-a Iqooeelibrioom inffelleebly predeects thet Slavko's scure-a fur persuneleety is a zero, und elsu, Slavko's scure-a fur Soceeelist Uteelity is a zero". 

Slavko:  "but I thought you said the judges were unable to come to a decision with regards to my personality or my socialist-utility".  

Moronov: "Siss you, Slabko, habe scorid a zero f' Pehsonality 'n a zero f' Socialist-Utiltiby, de honoraggle dgujes find dat your unaboidaggle fate accordigg t' de laws of Bordehland, uh uh uh uh, dat is":

[Edito''s translashun fum th' Latin : Yo' muss fust be depo'ted t'Siberia t'be pasteurized; then whut is lef' of yo' shall be removed t'Antartica t'be homogenized; an' then finally yo' shall be transpo'ted t'th' No'th-Pole t'be freeze-dried"]

[Added 4/23] 

Th' Wicked Homely Mutant Financial Pareesite Tycoons Internashunal Group, o' WUMPFTIG, does not like th' Socialists. Th' WUMPFTIG,reckons it kin use Slavko, on account o' th' hated Socialists is persecutin' Slavko. 

Meanwhile, unknown t'Slavko an' his capto's, a WUMPFTIG ajunt, has been observin' th' events. 

WUMPFTIG Ajunt Ole Man Frank N. Stein is holdin' whut appears t'be a hockey puck near his mouth. He is speakin' into th' hockey puck, which is acshully a two-way radio, usin' it t'communicut wif his bost Hermann Leroy. 

Stein: "I hefe-a a gruoop ooff suceeelists under oobserfeshun. Zeey ere-a in zee prucess ooff erresteeng a hundsume-a man vhu has un ixcellent voice-a, vhuse-a neme-a is Slavko. 

Leroy: "dig dis: Mah' enemy's enemy be my homey. We shall opuhra'te t'rescue Slavko fum de Socialist enemy. Slap mah fro! He gots'ta den be eternally grateful t'us, and we shall be able t'use him t'overdrow de Socialists. Ah' audo'ize ya' t'rescue Slavko frokm de Socialists, and den brin' him t'our secret haidquarters 25 nautical miles beneath de Black Sea".

Stein: "Messege-a understuud. Oofer und oooot". 

Cappain Stein cornsidered his next move: "Sceeence-a has nut pruved zeere-a is a God, so zeereffure-a zeere-a is no God, no right, nu wrong, no effterleeffe-a, nutheeng vurt dyeeng fur'. Stein turned an' addressed th' man wif him, WUMPFTIG Intellyjunce Ajunt Majo' Dick Joystick. Shet mah mouth! "Juysteeck, hoo ebuoot yuoo go on oofer zeere-a und rescooe-a Slavko vhile-a I wait here-a". 

Joystick thunk:  "Jesus hewlp me. If I die wescuing Swavko I might end up buwning in hewl fowevew! If I'm wounded my abiwity to scowe sexy chicks might be destwoyed. If I'm wounded in the gwoin, I won't be abwe to enjoy sewf-massage. God can you evew fowgive me? I did'nt mean it. I knew it was wwong, but I couwd'nt hewp it..." 

Stein: "Juysteeck, snep oooot ooff it.Yuoo're-a pretendeeng yuoo cun't heer me-a. Now yuoo mosey oon oofer zeere-a, und rescooe-a Slavko frum zee Suceeelist tresh vheele-a I wait here-a".

Joystick: "You just cawwed a Ukwainian twash. Accowding to weguwations, no WUMPFTIGER Officew in the intewwigence sewvice, is awwowed to caww a Ukwainian twash, and so, I'm not obwigated to fowwow youw owder"/

Stein: "Hooefer, eccurdeeng tu regooleshun X17, all ooffffeecers ere-a reqooured tu insoolt Soceeelists at leest oonce-a a veek". 

Joystick:"But the sociawists you insuwted awe Ukwainian". 

Stein's mind reflecked upon his trainin' days-- whut t'do in sech a situashun. Then he remembered Instruckshun G-A-Y-71, an' began t'implement it. Stein thunk about Slavko's hansum face an' bod. He imagined Slavko nude, on all fours like a houn'dog, wif a collar aroun' his neck, th' leash held by Stein. He imagined Slavko's mooscles in ackshun while Slavko lif'ed weights wo'th millions of dollars, weights made outta precious metals an' jewels an' gold. As Stein's mind focused on these fantasies Stein's loins became inflamed wif passhun fo' Slavko, an' his fear lef' him, on account o' he remembered whut he had been taught: 'One two thwee fouw five six seven, aww Lettuce G Bacon & Tomato Men go to Heaven'. An' so Stein transfo'med into a hero eager t'rexcue Slavko fum th' Socialists. 

     Nex' Chapper........... 

Stein puts on his sunglasses, identifies hisse'f as Mr. Polstoy. His sunglasses cost 14 billion dollars t'develop, an' change his face t'look like Polstoy. 

Stein identifies hisse'f as Polstoy t'th' Socialists. 

Stein: "Seeent Geurge-a has sent me-a tu oorder yuoo tu hand Slavko oofer tu my coostudy. Behuld, Saint Cunstunteene-a shell now eppeer tu us elung veet Saint Beelzebubsky und Staleen heemselff, tu cummund yuoo tu hand Slavko oofer intu my coostudy". 

Stein unhooked th' Alpine-Ski he had strapped t'his back. Shet mah mouth! Usin' th' tripod th' heel of th' ski was attached to, he mounted th' ski on th' groun', wif its nose pointed towards th' sky. Findin' his miniature foot-long bobsled in his knapsack, Stein's fingers bristled on over th' keypad inside it wif professhunal precishun. 

Stein removed an inflatable HD-TV fum his sack, an' placed it on a park-bench a few feet north of whar th' Socialists had corngregated t'intimidate Slavko. It broadcast showin' Joe Babyface an' Bill O'Blast samplin' the dawgoned-est most expensive pork-fat delicacies available. 

Th' socialists turned aroun', their eyes mesmerized by th' tellyvised images of pork-fat, their mouths droolin', as they licked their chops. 

Meanwhile, un-beknownst t'th' hypnotized dupes, a few feet south of th' Socialists, Stein prepared t'launch th' holographic device. 

Th' socialists rubbed their chubby stomachs as they watched Joe Babyface an' Bill O'Blast sample th' wo'ld's bess pork-fat. Howevah when they heard thet th' marble-sized piece of pawk-fat just cornsoomd by Billy  O'Blast cost th' equivalent of seven months avarage-wages fo' a Lutsk metal-wawker, they turned away in disgust. Th' hansumness of Babyface an' O'Blast combined wif th' high-price of th' pork-fat, inflamed jealousy in their un-Amerikin Socialist hearts. 

Stein looked up fum his miniature bobsled keypad as lights flashed on an' off on th' Alpine-Ski Holographic Junerator. To his utter shock an' surprise, th' Socialists had stopped watchin' th' TV, had turned aroun', an' were watchin' him! Fry mah hide! 

Stein thunk, "Boot zee WUMPFTIGER 319 AI Prugrem predeected thet zee prubebeelity ooff them sneppeeng oooot ooff zee Babyfface-a & O'Blast purk-fet mesmereezeshun in less thun 20 meenootes, is steteesticelly inseegnifficunt". 

Socialist:"Wot are them buttons yor pushin' in that wee bobsled, right, and 'ow come them lights are flickin' on that alpine ski"? 

Stein: "I ves joost cell-phuneeng Mrs Brezhnef, tu tell them ebuoot how zee purk-fet yuoo studs iet fur breekffest, loonch, und broonch, geefes yuoor bodeees a beooty akin tu thet ooff zee must beooteeffool Nazee female-a breests". 

Socialist: "Wow. My ears feel like dey habe djust stoppid itchigg. Must be cuz the, duh uhh, truth is good t' hear. Can webuh quote you on dat Mr. Polstoy, duh...uh..."?  

Stein pressed th' button t'launch th' hologram, dawgone it. Th' three saintly figgers appeared in th' sky: Stalin, St. Suburban Constantine Patriarch of Kievograd, an' billionaire tycoon Beelzebubsky side by side in hevvin. Stalin says, "hand Slavko over ter Stein". Constantine an' Beelzebubsky say "Amen". 

Th' Socialists fell t'th' groun'. 

Saintly figger in hologram: "Oh Ye Socialists below, it be commanded dee dat ye hand custody uh Slavko upside to WUMPFTIGER Agent #973 Frank N. Stein immediately".

Th' Socialists lay clin'in' t'th' earth fo' a few moments. Then came th' reackshuns. 

Socialist: "Everyone knows dat Frank N. Stein be de infamous despicable WUMFPTIGER Agent who wasted Bo'isov de Bear at da damn Uzhorod zoo, by feedin' him poisoned po'k-fat! Right on! Bo'isov de Bear how Ah' miss dee, dine natural animal grace wuz mah' god, Ah' wo'shipped dee! Right on"! 

Socialist: "'Ave a look at Polstoy. He 'ave a looks exactly like the bleedin' infamous despicable WUMFPTIGER Agent Frank N Stein". 

Stein reckanized his mistake. When he had momentarily succeeded in mesmerizin' th' Socialists wif th' Babyface & O'Blast pork-fat video, he had removed his face-disguisin' sunglasses t'git a better look at Slavko's excitin' derriere. Then, he had become so excited by whut he had seen, thet he had fo'gotten whar he had put th' magic hi-tech face-transfo'min' sunglasses. 

Th' Socialists scooted at Stein, brandishin' their agricultural implements. Stein pulled out his laser-pistol, aimed an' fired; an' nothin' happened, cuss it all t' tarnation. Then Stein remembered thet it had recently been discovahed thet th' laser-pistol does not funckshun wifin 50 feet of th' inflatable TV, howevah this hyar had been covahed up fo' years, some suspecked bribery. 

Stein felt th' thud of whut felt like heavy pillers impackin' upon him, dawgone it. Stein's mind fell asleep as he passed out an' it was on over. Stein, who had set out t'cappure Slavko, had hisse'f become cappured by th' Socialists. 

[Added 4/24] 

Meanwhile at th' WUMFPTIG HQ 25 miles beneath th' Black Sea, WUMFPTIG Colonel Hermann Leroy an' WUMFPTIG Juneral Randee is lost in revahrie, oblivious t'pore Stein's misfo'tunes, sharin' wif etch other their golden dreams regardin' WUMPFPTIG's future, while zonked out on th' latess designer drug, acco'din' t' th' code o' th' heells! 

Colonel Leroy: "Imagine da damn greatness uh de world once WUMFPTIG take it on over. Ah be economic prospuh'ity, de culture, de voices. And by de way, WUMFPTIG stands fo' Wicked Ugly Mutant Financial Parasite Tycoons Internashunal Group". 

General Randee: "Yuh, affteh WUMFPTIG establishes its rule, uh uh uh, it will be common t' hear beautiful voices dat sound dgjust like Rush Limbaugh's recitingg the, uh, the works of Ayn Rand". 

Colonel Leroy: "De audience listenin' t'de recitals will be composed uh brilliant minds able t'appreciate da damn wonderful combinashun uh a voice dat sounds plum jus like Phyllis Diller, eyeballin' 'n readin' aloud de wo'ks uh Charles Darwin. 'S coo', bro. You's kin be sho' da damn Darwin texts gots'ta survive any war dat wipes out all dose who is not WUMFPTIG insiders likes us". 

General Randee: "F' examble, webuh will produce de Marx-Two, which will be de mind of Karl Marx wid all desire t' help de poor removed. De Marx-Two will abbreshiate the, uh, excellenss of Bryan Williams' voice readigg the, uh, the works of Darwin, GEEEHEEHEEE. Not only dat, uh, it will be agble t' abbreshiate the, errr, compootr replays of de World Championship Fischeh Kasparobsky chess matches".

Colonel Leroy, "Yea. And da damn Marx-Two brain gots'ta be able t'enjoy de beauty uh a voice dat sounds plum jus like Scott Pelley's eyeballin' 'n readin' aloud da damn works uh Nietsche, while seated in some crib uh gold, snackin' on unlimited amounts uh steak and lobster. Ah be baaad..." 

General Randee: "And while listenigg t' de boice of Frank Sinatra read alound the, uh, the works of Napoleon, Marx-Two will habe abailagble f' consumpshun unlimitid amounts of cocaine 'n opium, affteh webuh establish WUMFPTIG on eardth".

Stein an' Slavko an' their socialist capptors arre in a Socialist safe-house. 

Slavko: "So you're Stein, the hated WUMFPTIG agent who poisoned Borisov the Bear at the Uzhorod zoo".

Stein: "I fed Boreesof zee Bear a harmless peeece-a ooff pork-fat, becoose-a Boreesof had teootoneec cheracetereestics, he-a seemed tu pussess a Germuneec type-a ooff cunneeng, und su he-a seemed special tu me-a". 

Slavko:  "Was the Pork-fat the 'Gene's Made-to-Order' brand from Space-Age Corporation?

Stein felt shocked; he wonnered whether Slavko was psychic: "Thet's reeght, zee purk-fat vas in fact zee 'Gene's Made-to-Order' brand frum Space-a-Age-a Curpureshun. Boot that dues'nt mean thet zee purk-fet coused Boreesof zee Beer's demise-a".

Socialist:  "Shut up Slabko. My boss at my part-time dgob sponsors a socceh-club dat is fundid by Space-Age Corporashun". 

Socialist: "Slavko, be quiet. Man! Mah' Big Daddy in law's cousin be part-owna' of Borderlands Bear Funeral Services. De zoo paid him 7100 Hryvnas t'conduct da damn funeral uh Borisov de Bear. Ah be baaad... Thirty-six hundred socialists attended da damn funeral".

Slavko felt as if he was suffocatin' amongst a crowd of economic-rats takin' a break fum th' rat-race. 

Slavko: "Imagine this: a chemical radiocative accident, producing a tribe called the RadioPigs. The National RadioPigs are mutated humans who are pohysically unattractive, criminal, and evil and who possess amazing power in terms of their ability to extract money from the people who live in the same country they live 9in. The RadioPigs International, on the other hand, are like the National RadioPigs, except taht the RadioPigs International, possesses fantastic ability to extract money from foreigners who they trade with. The problem with economic doctrine, is that it obligates the beautiful saints to lose their money to the National RadioPigs by way of unregulated commerce combined with government inactivity. The problem with economic doctrine is that it obligates beautiful saints to lose their shirt by way of international trade with foreign elements of RadioPigs International".

Socialist: "Slavko, youw mouf is calling for strokes. Oh, dat scwewy Slavko! My mother, my wife, and my seven daughtews are all ugly, but they awe awl good sociawists. Oh, dat scwewy Slavko! And the passion I feel for my ugwiest daughter, is ten times the passion you feew fow youw wife".

Colonel Leroy: "Major Joystick, what' going on"?

Majo' Joystick: "Captain Stein went on a mission to captuwe Swavko fwom the Sociawists. Oh, dat scwewy Stein! I've heawd nothing fwom him since". 

Colonel Leroy:  "So's why have'nt ya' contacted him, o' followed providin' backupup"? 

Majo' Joystick: "Because of P fow Penis T fow Tension S fow Stwess D fow Disowdew PTSD. I was watching a Miwey Cywus video. My extwemewy virile macho body ovewcame my bettew instincts.

Meanwhile back at th' WUMPFTIG regional haidquarters twenty five miles beneath th' Black Sea, Colonel Herman Leroy has been wawkin' on a strategy memo'andum regardin' th' controvahsy between th' lofty King Sauls of th' NBA an' th' disgraceful white racist L A Clippers Owner Sterlin', who insulted our genetic ancesto's th' great African-American race, which thanks be t'God, year af'er year helps us by eliminatin' thousan's of negro criminals. 

Juneral Ran'ee: "Regardigg dis NBA racist-owneh hoopla dat has annoyiggly grabbid hold of centeh-stage 'n stolen de limelite from WUMPFTIG, habe you finishid de WUMPFTIG strategy memorandum, duh...uh..."? 

Colonel Leroy: "Yeah dude I gots it done. Instead uh handin' the memo to ya', I'd rada' read it out loud, so's dat ya' kin 'eckspurience da damn thrill uh hearin' mah' voice eyeball 'n read de text. Man! De synergistic combinashun uh mah baaaad excellence in voice combined wid mah brilliant text should be real interestin', plum just as three plus three be six whereas three times three be nine."

Juneral Ran'ee: "Go ahead. I'll habe a sniff of cocaine before you start, uh, so as t' enaggble myself t' more greatly abbreshiate the, uh, expehrienss". 

Colonel Leroy: "Dankya', General. De negro brotheres is ten puh'cent uh de populashun. Derefo'e discriminashun against negro brotheres amounts t'discriminashun against only ten puh'cent uh de populashun. 

By way uh contrast, wid de NBA, we gots discriminashun against ninety nine point nine puh'cent uh de populashun, cuz' basically rappin', aside fum de pocket-hercules type freaks here and dere, only zero point one puh'cent uh de populashun be able t'compete at da damn top level. 

Derefo'e NBA-style type discriminashun be able t'bring nine-hundred and ninety nine out uh a thousand uh de dangerously lazy and selfish populashun into de disrepute dat dey deserve. De NBA-style discriminashun succeeds in makin' WUMPFTIG's enemy de fine saints look likes de rubbish dat dey actually are; beneath de supuh'ficiality uh appearances, beauty be only skin deep as de true proverb b rappin' y'all. 

Whereas, old-fashioned American-honky style anti-negro racism only brings some hundred out uh a thousand uh de damned populashun into disrepute. And da damn sucka's dat such honky contempt fo' niggahs style racism brings into disrepute, is charmin'ly igno'ant, tolerant uh our crimes, and amusin'ly sycophantic. Co' got d' beat! Dey is useful idiots. Danks be t'providence, de puh'cent uh de brother negro populashun dat be a fine saint be statistically insignificant. Man!

Majo' Joystick was gittin' ready t'retire fo' th' night in th' comfo't of his seven point three billion dollar inflatable invisible hovahcraf' igloo, hidden out in th' endless flat farmlan's of th' freezin' Bo'derlan's. Joystick heard an impressive voice say "Major Joystick, world renowned for thine excellent voice and thine superior intellect, I, Maygun Killee have been sent to thee, with the angel Gabriel by my side, to summon thee to surrender immediately to the Socialists". 

Joystick turned an' sar Maygun Killee in th' moonlight thirty feet away, wif a wingid angel warin' a silvah robe hovarin' by her side; th' angel's feet hovahed about a foot above th' groun'. 

Majo' Joystick: "Howd it wight thewe. Fow aww I know, you couwd be opticaw iwwusions, pwoduced by howogwaphic eqwipment you have captuwed fwom us WUMFPTIG."

Joystick fired a bust of shots fum his machine-pistol at th' angel, Ah reckon. Th' shots went right through th' angel wifout havin' enny effeck on th' angel.

Th' angel said: "See, buwwets cannot hawm an angew of God". 

Joystick thunk:"Dat's wight. Angews awe incowpoweaw beings of etheweaw Spiwit, it must be a weal angew". 

But Joystick was still not a hundred percent cornvinced. Majo' Joystick addressed Maygun Killee:  "Maygun, wet me touch you, so that I can feew whethew you awe weal, ow just an image cweated by a captuwed howogwaphic device". 

Maygun Killee: "Your mere suggestion that you touch me is sexual harassment, because it constitutes an unwanted social overture. Don't believe me? Just check WUMFPTIG Men's Heterosocial Regulations in Brief, Chapter 89, Section 343, page 1097."

Hearin' this, Majo' Joystick became mentally pareelyzed by fear. He had developed a corndishuned reflex t'submit t'them who rage about sexual hareessment. Joystick thunk of his friend, Don Vanity, who is now barred fum th' Commonwealth of Massachusetts, an' unable t'find a job. Well bust mah britches an' call me streaker. Chesty Grogan had th' hots fo' Don, she rubbed her crotch invitin'ly while starin' at Don an' smilin'. So Don axed her eff'n she be hankerin' t'have sex? 

It was Chesty's trimenjus chance t'go on pareede as th' famous desuhrable sexual hareessment vickim, dawgone it. Chesty put her speckacles on an' said "no, I do not want to have sex, I was just soliciting donations for Breast Cancer Awareness Week". Shet mah mouth! Then Chesty complained t'th' campus cops. Th' cops corncluded thet Don Vanity was guilty of sexual hareessment on account o' his sexual advance was unwanted, cuss it all t' tarnation. They took Don t'th' Unyversity Research Horspital, strapped him down, an' th' Professo' of Biochemical Brain Metaphysics (he was a secret WUMFPTIG auxiliary) injecked him wif a shot thet permanently destroyed th' sexual areas of Don's brain, as enny fool kin plainly see. 

Bein' unable t'vahrify eff'n th' holographic image was acshully Maygun Killee, gave Joystick's po'nographic mind th' excuse t'slide into th' fantasy thet it was really Maygun Killee, not a holographic illushun (Joystick had offen suffered Penile Tenshun Stress Diso'der while watchin' th' beatiful an' brilliant Maygun Killee on TV). In th' end th' combinashun of: th' shots gowin' through th' angel like they were supposed to, th' bein' unable t'touch Maygun, th' fear of bein' punished like Don Vanity, proved too much fo' Majo' Joystick. Shet mah mouth! 

Maygun Killee (while invitin'ly wrifin' her hips): "Major Joystick, Socialists are better at rehabilitating PTSD, much better than WUMFPTIG".

An' so, Majo' Joystick surrennered t'th' Socialists, an' was marched off like a Houn'dogle led t'th' slaughter, t'th' Socialist Safehouse whar th' Socialists were already holdin' Slavko an' Stein. On th' bright side th' Socialists did not notice his invisible igloo, but Ah figger its jest a matter of time befo'e they git hold of it.

Meanwhile, a secret meetin' is takin' place somewhar in th' suburbs of Tomahawk City in th' Bo'derlan's. In hi-tech offices hidden inside a cave whar Amazons once sacrificed min to th' Goddess Diana, an unlikely combinashun haf secretly corngregated, cuss it all t' tarnation. 

Alex Vodkalnikov, (SCC-SPU representative): "It is me pleasure ter brin' the May 2014 meetin' of the chuffin' Secret Conspirators Committee for a Strong Prosperous Ukraine ter order. We are the SCC-SPU, right, S for Secret, C for Conspirators etcetera. 

We 'ave worked out a formula whereby yer will be justly paid for causin' chaos and destruction violence and mayhem in the bloomin' Borderlands, init? 

The formula accounts for money comin' into the chuffin' Borderlands in the bleedin' form of: military aid, right, civilian aid, right, and brass spent by foreigners. It accounts for arms-purchases and reconstruction spendin' created by Borderlands mayhem. It accounts for reductions in unemployment created by Borderlands mayhem-related fatalities. These declines in unemployment statistics are useful for propaganda sound-bite purposes. 

The bloomin' higher the bloody number proruded by the formula, the bloomin' more yer will be paid. yor job is ter push the chuffin' number created by the chuffin' formula ter an 'igh level by way of violence and destruction. The more violence yer cause the more foreign aid will arrive. Violence and destruction will increase spendin' in Ukraine by foreign aid workers and military personnnel from boff sides and also will increase the bleedin' GDP and lower unemployment, right, seein' that dead men fill out no Uncle Bob applications". 

Kievchenko Pavlovenko (representin' Bo'derlan's Anti-Secesshunist Hooligans or BASH): "Can you gibe us an examble of duh, how our renumehrashun will be effeckid by de lebel of disrupshun, duh...uh..."? 

Vodkalnikov: "For example if the Ukraine violence results in 1000 deaffs, yer will accordin' the bleedin' formula, each receive $100,000. If it results in one million deaffs, however, right, yer will each receive ten million dollars plus a one-week all expoenses paid vacation at the Czar's former dacha in the bloody Alps, where we will celebrate wiv Playmates from the Berlin Playboy Club there will be plenty of Vodka and pork-fat for all. 

Yor violence mayhem chaos destruction if yer choose ter produce enough ter kill a million Ukainians, will make us all millionaires, reduce unempolyment, and please the business community by increasin' GDP by 7%".  

Ratomir Pavlov (representin' Borderlands Secessionist Firm or BSF): "But where is all dese financial benefits goin' t'come fum, whut gots'ta be da damn source uh de bre'd"? 

Vodkalnikov: "In the chuffin' end, the bloomin' world will pour billions and billions into Ukraine in response ter yor creative chaos. Cor blimey guv! That brass will end up in Borderlands, circulatin' from bearboy ter bearboy so there will be multiplier effects. Billions of the world's money will end up in us hands".

Ukraine Cities Data Table

I have created a first version of a table giving data and links for the leading cities of the Ukraine. I will use this blog-post for updates regarding new versions.


March 19, 2014:

Added: Small artistically packaged maps showing location of each region and town for towns with football/soccer teams. Reminds me of the effort put into small details by the artists creating miniatures for the Mogul emperors. 


March 16, 2014:

Added: Table-rows for Russian-dominated towns in Russian national colors; table-rows for towns featuring rough Russian/Ukrainian balance in colors that are midway between Russian and Ukrainian colors.

Ukraine Data Table 2014 V3


March 15, 2014:

Added translations of the names of the top sixteen Ukraine soccer teams (indispensable anthropometric input). Table looks fine in IE8.

Doctor Easterneuropinsky: "Oone-a cun now see-a, besed oon Hobbs' trunsleshun ooff Ukreeeniun succer teem names, thet Ukreeene-a is all about, hydru-ilectreec poower creeted by reevers roosheeng down heell, beeeng hernessed tu prudooce-a ilectreecity used tu ingeeneer metel prudoocts, und zee succer-pleyeeng men infulfed in thees prucess".

Ukraine Data Table 2014 V2


March 14, 2014:

I have created a first version of a table giving data and links for the leading cities of the Ukraine:

Cities of the Ukraine v1

I consider the table to be more than a presentation of information. It is also a work of art. Nowadays we have excellent computer tools that we can use to produce art that conforms exactly to scriptures that declare that we should not create images of things found above in the sky, or on earth, or below in the sea.

Yet so few persons show interest in using the new tools to create works of visual art.

Outlook-Express Folder empty files missing Problem & Solution

Note: IE = Internet Explorer; OE = Outlook Express; Chrome = Google Chrome; PC = personal computer.

I attempted to work with IE, Chrome, and OE draft .eml format emails all at same time. My PC suddenly turned off. I restarted. On restart, the OE drafts folder I had been working with, containing 50 draft .eml files in OE was empty! The drafts folder or its contents were not in the recycle bin. I right-clicked on the drafts folder in OE, found it was now stored in C:\Documents and Settings\account 2\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\...\Microsoft\Outlook Express\Drafts (1).dbx.

OE had shifted to storing the draft emails, in \Outlook Express\Drafts (1).dbx, a new empty .dbx file it created; it no longer stored draft emails in \Outlook Express\Drafts.dbx, the file it stores draft emails in by default. This due to confusion created by my attempt to use OE, IE, & Chrome simult. But the old \Outlook Express\Drafts.dbx still existed.

My successful solution (learned knowledge used when investigating how to re-introduce or restore backed up .dbx files into Outlook Express):

1) in OE create new folder, named olddrafts;

2) in OE, highlight this new folder;

Note: 1) & 2) result in creation of new olddrafts.dbx file in C:\Documents and Settings\account 2\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\...\Microsoft\Outlook Express\;

3) close OE;

4) remove the drafts.dbx file containing the 50 missing emls from C:\Documents and Settings\account 2\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{8D34CE3B-CD23-43FC-98BF-8C48CF87B754}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\;

5) change name of removed drafts.dbx file to olddrafts.dbx;

6) replace empty olddrafts.dbx in C:\Documents and Settings\account 2\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\...\Microsoft\Outlook Express\, with olddrafts.dbx file containing original missing 50 draft emails.

Now in OE, I can access all the draft emails that had become lost, via the olddrafts folder.

Notes on Ukraine, Crimea, and Russia

will update this post as I have more to say about the Ukraine situation.

4:48 PM 9/12/2014


According to the MSM, the ceasefire is a sign of 'Kiev's weakness', & a victory for Putin.

There are other opinions, well-expressed, to be found in an ocean of relatively inferior web-pages.

IMHO as of now:

There is a 'shaky' ceasfire in effect in Ukraine Donbass region. Which got me to thinking: just like walking 10,000 meters, or swimming can become a habit, so also, war can become a habit. I get to the point, when I become habituated to exercise, that I dread having to be awake during the day without having first exercised. So also, I suppose, men can become addicted to the routine of war. Hence one might surmise, that ceasefires can serve a useful purpose, by bringing conflicts that continue for no reason other than force of habit, to a pause or an end.

I was thinking, what if there was on earth a human god? He would probably be thinking as follows:

(preliminary Fanfare of trumpets, thunders).

"There are 3 alternatives. A) Ukraine conquers Novorussia, B) Novorussia conquers Ukraine, C) Ukraine and Novorussia stop fighting and use the time energy and money they have been putting into fighting, to render service to me, the god,  instead; using that time energy and money they could build me a hell of a pyramid. C is better than A, and also C is better than B. Regardless of whether A is better than B, or B is better than A". 

'If there's a rock n roll heaven
well you know they got a hell of a band'
  -- The Righteous Brothers - "Rock And Roll Heaven" - YouTube (1974)

Rock and Roll Heaven - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Righteous Brothers musically embodied 'Blue-eyed Soul'. They were white northern european types, but when they sang they sounded like quality African-American singers. They got wise to how advanced African-American music had become by the 1970s, because of generations of African-American vocal and instrumental church music.

The Ukrainians and the so-called 'Novorussians', should have a contest to compare the ten best Ukrainian versions of 'Rock and Roll Heaven', to the ten best Novorussian versions. Whichever side won would be rewarded with territorial concessions.

Heck, 'Blue Eyed Soul' music of the 'Righteous Brothers' type, beats Orthodox icons (promotes images) and Islamo-fundamentalist persecution-of-music (indirectly promotes images), don't it?


6:42 AM 8/17/2014

IMHO as of now:


I found a photo, which to me summarizes well the fighting that has been going on in the Ukraine Civil War:

Silly Battle Positions Photo
Fighting rages in Donetsk as Ukraine government forces close in | Mail Online (August 17, 2014)

Note the caption of the photo:
"Raging: Ukrainian soldiers take up positions during fighting against militants, near Ilovaysk town, outside Donetsk, Ukraine, as government forces closed in on the rebel stronghold"
The caption and the photo illustrate several aspects of silliness to be found in the Ukie Govt effort, and amongst their NATO enthusiasts.

1. Their idea of 'raging fighting closing in on rebels', is Govt troops stationary in a road, sitting ducks surrounded on at least three sides by thick visually impenetrable vegetation.

2. Their idea of 'taking up fighting positions while closing in on rebels' is to be stationary in a concrete road surrounded on all sides by visually impenetrable, and almost physically impenetrable, 20-foot high vegetation.

3. They apparently have no idea how silly the 'raging battle position closing in on rebs' is, even though it is now August 17th, and the war has been going on for weeks.

4. Even the military novice can see how the gray road they are on stands out from the green vegetation surrounding it, and is therefore easily spotted identified and targeted.

5. An enemy hidden in the vegetation could easily hit the heroes in 'fighting position' with some kind of projectile-fire, even if he could not see them, if he was assisted by a team-mate who could see them in communication with him.

The conflict so far generally has involved groups of hundreds of Ukie Govt troops on roads, stalked by small groups of dozens of rebels hidden in the woods vegetation hills valleys etc. The Ukie advantage in numbers in such situations is useless, because the rebels only need enough troops to destroy the Ukies, they don't need to equal the Ukie govt troops in numbers in these little battles.

The imbalance due to visibility of Ukies compared to invisibility of rebels, is exacerbated by the fact that the civilians in the area, even when they are not combatants, serve more as eyes and ears for the rebels compared to serving as eyes and ears for the Ukie Govt troops.

The Ukie Govt troops concentration of forces simply makes it easier for the rebels to turn them into casualties. The rebel dispersion of forces makes it difficult for the Ukie Govt troops to get to them.

The Ukies seem to have misunderstood the doctrine of concentration of forces. Although in some situations concentration of forces is advantageous, in other situations dispersal of forces is advantageous.

The numerical advantage and the concentration of troops ends up instilling a false sense of confidence in the Ukie Govt troops which works to their disadvantage.

Why have the Ukie Govt troops repeatedly been setting themselves up like sitting ducks in a shooting gallery in roads parking lots etc., only to be terminated by numerically inferior rebels hidden behind hills and trees and grass etc?

1. The Ukie Govt troops do not know the details and secrets of the topography of the wooded hilly land as well as the rebels, so they are afraid to venture therein.

2. Their vehicles that they are used to working with are not able to penetrate dense vegetation.

3. Their training and their weapons and equipment are not fit for the invisible penetration of dense vegetation.

4. Their focus on encircling and conquering cities and towns, makes staying on roads and out of the woods/tall-grass seem reasonable to them.

5. They are afraid of being trapped in the vegetation due to the locals acting as eyes and ears for the rebels.

Another example of Silliness on a road surrounded by dense vegetation:

I posted a version-2 of the Eurasian Haplogroups Table. This version includes rows giving data for Chromosomal Adam, the first haplogroup after Chromosomal Adam, Haplogroup I, and Haplogroup ancestors of I:

Eurasian Haplogroups- Time/Place Origin, Ancestor Haplogroup, Modern Incidence (V.2)

Also I produced and posted a map showing historic migrations of Eurasian Haplogroups:

Migration Roots of Eurasian Y-Haplogroups

I suspect that significant sources of animosity for the Russian east, amongst westerners are: about half the Russians are Haplogroup R1A whereas about half the westerners are R1B; and, whereas 20% of Russians are of the Siberian Haplogroup-N, less than one percent of the westerners are. Aside from these two differences, the Y-DNA and MtDNA haplogroups of the westerners and the Russians are very similar.

(best I can tell according to science as of now):

A Cameroon man who lived approx 350,000 BC is patrilineal ancestor (father's father's father ad infinitum) to all human males.

An Iranian man who lived 41,000 BC is patrilineal ancestor to all R1A, R1B, N and I-haplogroup males.

A North-Indian man who lived 38,000 BC is patrilineal ancestor to all R1A, R1B, and N-haplogroup males.

A North-Indian man who lived 18,000 BC is patrilineal ancestor  to all R1A and R1B males.

Early on in history, at a point near the southern edge of the Indus Valley, the ancestors of the I haplogroup (15-20% of Russians and the west) branched off from the eastwards path followed by the K-haplogroup which eventually gave rise to the R and N haplogroups. The I-precursor people chose to go Northwest into Europe instead.

The western fear of the Russian Siberian N-haplogroup and Russian Indo-Scythian R1A haplogroup conflicts with haplogroup history. The westerners adore the 'Nordic' I-haplogroup amongst them, this despite the fact that the R1B ancestry which characterizes the plurality/majority of these westerners, is more closely related to R1A and N than it is to Haplogroup-I.    


8:24 AM 4/05/2014

Feeling the need to review the history of the Eurasian haplogroups (the genetics of those now involved in the Ukraine squabble), and feeling dissatisfied with the available web-pages, I created a new information table:

Eurasian Haplogroups- Time/Place Origin, Ancestor Haplogroup, Modern Incidence

It was as usual a shocking surprise how much time and energy it took to produce this table. As usual, the sources resorted to were: verbose, careless re terminology, lost-in-details, inexplicably silent or laconic re important points, inexplicably verbose re secondary points. 

A large number of them, despite their energetic verbosities, did not understand basics such as, someone declaring that x percent of population y belongs to haplogroup R1, could mean EITHER that x percent of population y belongs to paragroup R1* (R1 without subsequent SNP mutations), OR that x percent of population y belongs to groups such as R1a, R1b, which are subgroups of R1. Hence they became confused re the data and made erroneous statements. 


4:29 AM 4/04/2014

This version expands the rows containing information regarding where in the world the given haplogroups found in Eurasia, score the highest in terms of percentage of population. Belatedly I began to realize that the Eupedia maps and info tended to be Euro-centric, which resulted in confusion re where in the world (as opposed to where in Europe) the given haplogroup scores the highest in terms of percentage of population.

Thoughts re West Europe vs East Europe Comparative Paternal Genetics

Imagine Germany, Ireland, England, & Scotland as one nation called GIES. The paternal Y-haplogroup genetics of this GIES nation symbolically, is a class of 20 schoolboys, of which: 13 are R (Scythian) haplogroup; 4 are I (nordic) haplogroup; 1 is E North-African haplogroup; one is J (Caucasian) haplogroup; and one is G (Caucasian) haplogroup.

Russia's paternal lineage can also be imagined as a classroom of boys: 11 R-haplogroup; 3 I-haplogroup; 4 N (Siberian) haplogroup; one E haplogroup, and one J-haplogroup. 

The Russian class could be changed into a class identical haplogroup-wise to the GIES class simply by: transforming two of the four N-group Siberian boys into R-group-boys; transforming one of the four N-group Siberian boys into an I-boy; and transforming the fourth N-group Siberian boy into a G-group Caucasian boy.

Though it's been said that R1A and R1B are like two sides of a coin, the idea that there is a big paternal genetic difference between Russia and the hypothetical GIES nation is based on nothing but: distinguishing R1A and R1B as two separate groups; and, seeing the 20% Siberian N-group presence in Russia as radically altering things.

Genetics of Russia, Ukraine, Germany, Ireland, England and Scotland Compared

I have created a couple of new tables describing the paternal and maternal genetic information available for Russia and the Ukraine. Also added for comparison purposes is such info for Germany, Ireland, and Britain.

For each haplogroup also shown are places where the given haplogroup has its highest percentage, and links to haplogroup maps.

Civilian Gentile Casualties in Nazi-Occupied Territories 

Some say, actions speak louder than words, the Nazi leadership may have spoken genocidally, but the rank and file of the German army was not like them, so the Germans actually did not behave as badly as they are said to have behaved.

Thinking regarding the events in the Ukraine, I wanted to find out the facts, regarding what happened  to the civilians under Nazi occupation. I felt that what with the emphasis on Jewish civilian casualties, we had all been left in the dark regarding Gentile civilian casualties. 

Note: this is based on sources I found in the internet.

Nazis occupied a Russian territory containing 70 million persons for two years. During this occupation according to stats found on the internet, they killed 1 million or 33 percent of the Soviet Jews, and caused 9 million gentile civilian deaths (13% of the gentiles in the occupied territory, 4.5 million per year, 12.3k/day) due to war and war-crimes, and 5.9 million gentile civilian deaths (8% of the population)  due to famine and disease. At the rate they were going, had the Nazis stayed in the occupied USSR until 1956 instead of until 1943, they would have exterminated the non-Germanic gentiles in the USSR territory they occupied by 1956. And that's assuming there would be no further deaths from famine.

Tne Nazi Occupation of Poland, continued for 6 years, from  1939-45. The Nazi-occupied territory contained 7 million Gentiles. Of these one million were expelled to the east. Of the remaining 6 million Polish gentiles, 2.6 mill were murdered by Nazis (43%), whilst another 400k (7%) died due to famine/disease caused by Nazis. This in 6 years, meaning a rate of 7% of the civilians killed each year by war/war-crimes (1200/day, 433k/yr), which would have resulted in (even assuming no further deaths from Nazi-caused famine/disease) all of the Polish Gentiles in German-occupied Poland being killed by 1953 had the Germans not left in 1945.

My homework regarding the Ukrainian Crisis for tonight.

I have built a graphic showing various maps of the Ukraine (the maps have been scaled, one is a composite I created:

Ukraine Maps Collection- March 2014

One can see, that the current ethnic linguistic and political divisions in the Ukraine, have roots going back at least c. 450 years (about 20 generations), at least back to 1570 AD. These divisions split Ukraine into, roughly speaking, a Ukrainian area west of the Dnieper river and a Russian area east of the Dnieper river.

The eastern Ukraine area, became a part of the Ukraine, in 1922 when Vladimir Lenin led the USSR, after the USSR won the post-WWI battles which decided the fate of the Ukraine (as of now I feel mystified regarding what this eastern Ukrainian area was called before it was added to West-Ukraine by Lenin). Crimea, a southern peninsular component of the east-Ukraine area, was added to the Ukraine in 1954, as a gift from the Ukrainian Kruschev, who at that time led the USSR.

The present-day Ukraine is an almost exactly proportional enlargement of the Ukraine of 1654 (360 years ago, about 16 generations ago); the 1654 Ukraine spanned both sides of the Dnieper; modern Ukraine's sense of unity between east and west Ukraine is rooted in the Ukraine of 1654. However the Ukraine of 1654, contradicted natural divisions between east and west that existed before 1654 and are almost exactly mirrored geographically now in the year 2014.

Ukraine has a history of suffering enslavement, exploitation, massacre, war, and famine, due the the activities of outsiders upon Ukrainian soil; hence it is somewhat natural for Ukrainians to fear exploitation by outsiders.

West Ukrainians fear exploitation (becoming a financial victim) at the hands of Russians and East-Ukrainians. East Ukrainians fear exploitation at the hands of Western-Ukrainians. Both sides fear being exploited by Europe. Many Ukrainians fear Nazis and/or Jews.

Note: I base these statements on sources which I have some trust in, but which may not be entirely correct.
