30:56 – Goodrob13 Music Show episode 8: Figuring out the best spot to stand on the train platform, my weird experience coming out of the PATH station this morning, scaffolding in NYC, being more efficient when paying for groceries, most people in front of me in line taking 10 times longer than I do, bank tellers and post offices, most people entering and exiting elevators too slowly, unusually warm weather, my hatred of obnoxiously loud motorcycles, why it’s so important to leave comments on podcasts, the importance of online interaction and discussion, buying an electric guitar soon, and being realistic and reasonable about my music equipment and prices.

    I enjoyed the show. It was the first time I listened because of the name of the show. I thought it was music or talking about music. I wonder if other people think the same thing.

    Hi Becky, I do talk about music and related topics, but I also talk about whatever is on my mind. This is kind of like an audio journal for me and doing this podcast helps me organize my thoughts and and share them with everyone. Episode 8 featured more ranting than music talk, but my previous episodes are more music related. Give those a listen and let me know what you think, thanks!

    Regarding the “chemtrail” stuff I’m afraid I don’t have too many details on the conspiracy site of things.

    From personal experience I recall seeing contrails in the sky for as long as I can remember. We don’t get a lot of air traffic overhead here, but there will be 3-4 planes a day, and yeah sometimes there is a long trail and sometimes it dissipate pretty quickly and sometimes you don’t see much at all.

    I’ve personally never had any trouble with the “mainstream” explanation for this myself though, basically the visibility of the trail depend on the temperature and air-pressure around the aircaft (this will be radically different to conditions on the ground), see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contrail for more details. To be clear the visible white trail is supercooled water-vapor, the effect is triggered by particles from the plane exhaust if conditions are right, but the visible trail is NOT entirely made up “chemical waste” from the engines. Yes planes produce some amount of pollution, but those cars going by you on the street is probably having a much more negative effect on you then a plane flying overhead. Grid patterns and such are the natural result of highly regulated air traffic “lanes”, also keep in mind that each trail might be thousands of feet apart in altitude even if they appear to be parallel or intersect when seen from the ground.

    Cloud seeding is a technique to trigger cloud formation though roughly the same process as contrails form by deliberately dumping large amounts of “seeding substances” to trigger condensation. I assume this is one source of assumptions for the “cemtrail” theories. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_seeding

    Not saying these Wikipedia articles are necessarily the whole truth here, but they have lots of sources you can peruse for your own research, there is also an http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemtrail_conspiracy_theory article for your reference. Of course it if is a real thing all the mainstream evidence is faked, my problem is that in order for the theory that these are deliberately sprayed chemicals for some sinister purpose to be real, it basically means every airline and air traffic authority on the planet down the last mechanic plus every atmospheric expert and so on have to be in on it. That’s one massive conspiracy, and if nothing substantial have leaked so far us regular folk is not going to find out much more on the subject anyhow.

    Personally I think Occam’s razor cut in favor of contrails just being contrails though, based on the “evidence” I’ve seen so far.

    P.S. Sun Dogs have been observed for thousands of years all over the world, and as far as I can tell from my admittedly limited research they are not “supposed” to be limited to the far North. Ancient Greeks like Aristotels and various Roman records mention the phenomena for example (not in so many words though, talking of “two mock suns” or “double suns” and things like that being observed).
