It really is an interesting sport, with lots of physics involved in bowling a good score. You should try it sometime!

If you ever find yourself in Lamar Colorado on a Saturday night with nothing to do....



and after you have seen the wind turbine blade next to the train depot there isn't much left to do. Try the Lamar Bowl! It is the bowlwing alley that time forgot.

Re: Bowling - 10/23/09 07:14 AM

I contemplated those words all night and I think google missed the mark on Lamar. There is of course the afore mentioned wind turbine blade as well as the gas station built from petrified wood which is why we took that route back from New Mexico this summer.

Did you know that Trinidad, Colorado is the sex change capitol of the US?



This wolf spider was in the door to my garage earlier this Fall. If you look closely you can see that the abdomen seems unusually large and lumpy. This is because there are thousands of tiny wolf spiders crawling on the body of the mother.

I don't know why they did this.

Did you order them to do this?

Re:Nothing but Other Sports here, pay no attention - 10/23/09 10:27 AM

Yes. They have their instructions about where to jump off also.

As for Trinidad CO, no-- I did not know that.

If you'll excuse me, I have a wild time at Prowers Medical Center to plan. The rides are awesome!

I should warn you that their "Tunnel of Love" is not as exciting as they claim it is. A very slow ride.

It's a slow ride, but great fun if you take it easy.

You need to reread the takeover handbook. We like the stealth approach until victory is assured. See this is why you are not an Evil Overlord. Strategy is obviously not your strong suit.

You still doddering around that old shack at Mt. Vernon. I thought you made that the harem quarters and upgraded.
Posted by: DCHawk1

Re: Bowling - 10/27/09 11:46 AM

On a semi-serious note, Mt. Vernon is , without question, the premier tourist site in the Washington area.

Used to live about a mile north of the mansion in Alexandria. Beautiful drive. Beautiful views.

Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.
Posted by: jayhwk01

Re: Bowling - 10/27/09 11:48 AM

It is a nice little shack but honestly it is no Monticello.
Posted by: WisconsinJayhawk

Re: Bowling - 10/27/09 12:02 PM

The crabby little old ladies that run the place leave something to be desired, though.

My non-experience at Mt Vernon was only in the smallest part caused by them, however. While I was in DC nearly 2 years ago (wife attending a conference), early afternoon I decided to make a public transit run out there. The metro to the appropriate terminal to catch a bus wasn't bad, but the bus was late and time was dwindling. So I gambled and took the non-direct bus. Mistake.

I did learn that Alexandria has a high population of minority workers, especially hispanic apparently, and I did get a nice tour of the many apartment complexes where they reside. It is, nevertheless, a worthwhile experience to be the only caucasian person aboard a bus, as it must in many regards resemble daily life for minorities among the caucasian population, and is a good reminder to be humble.

In the end, after arriving 20 minuted before closing time, I decided not to spend the 15 bucks. Hell, it would take 10 minutes to get to the house form the gates. My decision was aided by the LOL (not referring to laughter here) who spent 10 of that 20 minutes leaving to find out whether a ticket bought today could be used tomorrow.

But the Mt. Vernon gift shop and cafeteria were very nice.

Why do these people continue to post? How many soccer questions could there be? I figured the answer to the first one was Pele and then I'm lost.

I posted "Pele" to the first question and was roundly abused. That is one small part of the reason I was driven to Evil.

You have every right to feel that way Mr. Washington. Damn soccer fans.
Posted by: WisconsinJayhawk

Re: Bowling - 10/27/09 12:19 PM

I mean seriously, if the answer isn't Pele, offsides, Beckham, Brandy Chastain, drunken brawls, or Manchester United, then the "next soccer question" isn't worth asking.

Re: Bowling - 10/27/09 12:41 PM

Wait pwhitt, your injuries are honorable. Soccer is not a pussy sport. It aint world conquest, but I'm sure it brings a few bumps and bruises.

Perhaps you have read the disinformation on our plans for Other Sports. You will still be permitted to enjoy soccer. Life will continue as normal. Except we will be your Evil Overlords. Very nice evil overlords, might I add. We simply wish to subjugate the board, quietly, peacefully. Will you not aid us? I promise soccer watch parties and raffles for things like an autographed Pele ball.

Re: Bowling - 10/27/09 12:58 PM

Pwhitt, have you no sense of decency, with your one sentence spread out over multiple posts? I am appalled. Kids today don't appreciate the hard work that should go into proper evil, or even a fair fight for the soul of a forum.


It's sad. You make an Evil Overlord despair for the future of our youth. But if that's how you want it....

If you have ever wondered aobut the trombone, read this. It won't take long. Especially recommended reading for pwhitt.


The trombone is a musical instrument in the brass family. Like all brass instruments, sound is produced when the player’s vibrating lips (embouchure) cause the air column inside the instrument to vibrate. The trombone is usually characterised by a telescopic slide with which the player varies the length of the tube to change pitches, although the valve trombone uses three valves similar to those on a trumpet.

The word trombone derives from Italian tromba (trumpet) and -one (a suffix meaning "large"), so the name literally means "large trumpet". Trombones and trumpets share the important characteristic of having predominantly cylindrical bores. Therefore, the most frequently encountered trombones—the tenor and bass trombone—are the tenor and bass counterparts of the trumpet. They are both pitched in B♭—with the slide all the way in, the notes of the harmonic series based on B♭ can be played—but trombones generally read music in concert pitch.

A person who plays the trombone is called a trombonist.

A disassembled trombone. From left to right: mouthpiece, outer slide, bell section, inner slide.
A trombone mouthpieceThe trombone consists of a cylindrical tube bent into an elongated "S" shape in a complex series of tapers, the smallest being at the mouthpiece receiver, and the largest being at the throat of the bell, before the flare for the bell begins. (Careful design of these tapers is crucial to the intonation of the instrument.) As with other brass instruments, sound is produced by blowing air through pursed lips producing a vibration that creates a standing wave in the instrument.

The detachable cup-shaped mouthpiece, similar to that of the baritone, closely related to that of the trumpet, is inserted into the mouthpiece receiver in the slide section, which consists of a leadpipe, inner and outer slide tubes, and bracing, known as inner and outer slide stays. While modern stays are soldered, sackbuts (a medieval precursor to the trombone) were made with loose, unsoldered stays, which remained the pattern for German trombones until the mid-20th century. The leadpipe contains the venturi, which is a small constriction of the air column, adding a certain amount of resistance and to a great extent dictating the tone of the instrument; leadpipes may be soldered in permanently or interchangeable, depending on the maker.

The 'slide', the defining feature of the trombone (cf. valve trombone) allows the player to extend the length of the air column, lowering the pitch. In order to prevent friction from slowing the action of the slide, additional sleeves were developed during the Renaissance and these stockings were soldered onto the ends of the inner slide tubes. Nowadays, the stockings are incorporated into the manufacturing process of the inner slide tubes and represent a fractional widening of the tube to accommodate the necessary method of alleviating friction. This part of the slide must be lubricated on a frequent basis. Additional tubing connects the slide to the bell of the instrument through a neckpipe, and bell or back bow (U-bend). The joint connecting the slide and bell sections is furnished with a ferrule to secure the connection of the two parts of the instrument, though older models from the early 20th century and before were usually equipped with friction joints and no ancillary mechanism to tighten the joint.

The adjustment of intonation is most often accomplished with a tuning slide that is a short slide between the neckpipe and the bell incorporating the bell bow (U-bend); this device was designed by the French maker François Riedlocker during the early nineteenth century and applied to French and British designs and later in the century to German and American models, though German trombones were built without tuning slides well into the 20th century. However, trombonists, unlike other instrumentalists, are not subject to the intonation issues connected with valved or keyed instruments, since they can adjust intonation "on the fly" by subtly altering slide positions when necessary.

As with the trumpet, the trombone is considered a cylindrical bore instrument since it has extensive sections of tubing, principally in the slide section, that are of continuous diameter. This is in contrast to conical bore instruments like the cornet, euphonium, and tuba, whose only cylindrical tubing is in the valve section. Tenor trombones typically have a bore of 0.450" (small bore) to 0.547" (large or orchestral bore) after the leadpipe and through the slide. Some small bore jazz trombones, though, have two different diameters of tubing in the slide section to simulate a conical bore. Without this innovation, the trombone would sound extremely sharp and piercing. The bore expands through the backbore to the bell which is typically between 7" and 8˝". A number of common variations on trombone construction are noted below.

[edit] History
[edit] Renaissance and Baroque periods
Main article: Sackbut
Until the early 18th century, the trombone was called the sackbut in England, although other countries used the same name throughout the instrument's history, viz. Italian trombone and German Posaune. The sackbut was built in slightly smaller dimensions than modern trombones, and had a bell that was more conical and less flared.

The instrument was used extensively across Europe from its appearance in the 15th century to a fading out in most places across the mid-late 17th century. It was used in outdoor events, in concert and in liturgical settings. The groups varied from alta capella, wind ensembles, with voices, and in the first 'orchestra'-type ensembles in religious settings such as St. Mark's Venice in the early 17th century. Famous composers writing for the trombone in this period include Giovanni Gabrieli and his uncle Andrea Gabrieli, Claudio Monteverdi and Heinrich Schütz. There is also some solo pieces written specifically for trombone in the early 17th century.

During the later Baroque period, Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel used the trombone on few occasions; Bach used it in combination with the cornett to evoke the stile antico in some of his many cantatas and Handel used it in the Dead March from Saul, Samson, and Israel in Egypt, all of which were examples of a new oratorio style, popular during the early 18th century.

[edit] Classical period
The use of the trombone in this period was mostly limited to Austria.

The repertoire of trombone solo and chamber literature has its beginnings in Austria in the Classical Era where composers such as Leopold Mozart, Georg Christoph Wagenseil, Johann Albrechtsberger and Johann Ernst Eberlin were featuring the instrument, often in partnership with a voice. Joseph Haydn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart used the trombones in a number of their sacred works, including two extended duets with voice from Mozart, the best known being in the Tuba Mirum of his Requiem. The inspiration for many of these works was no doubt the virtuosic playing of Thomas Gschladt who worked in the court orchestra at Salzburg, although when his playing faded, so did the general composing output for the instrument. The trombone retained its traditional associations with the opera house and the Church during the 18th century and was usually employed in the usual alto/tenor/bass trio to support the lower voices of the chorus, though Viennese court orchestra Kapellmeister Johann Joseph Fux rejected an application from a bass trombonist in 1726 and restricted the use of trombones to alto and tenor only, which remained the case almost until the turn of the 19th century in Vienna, after which time a second tenor trombone was added when necessary. The construction of the trombone changed relatively little between the Baroque period and Classical period with the most obvious feature being the slightly more flared bell than was previously the custom.

The first use of the trombone in a symphony was in 1807 in the Symphony in E♭ by the Swedish composer Joachim Nicolas Eggert 1, although the composer usually credited with its introduction into the symphony orchestra was Ludwig van Beethoven, who used it in the last movement of his Symphony No. 5 in C minor (1808). Beethoven also used trombones in his Symphony No. 6 in F major ("Pastoral") and Symphony No. 9 ("Choral").

[edit] Romantic period
Leipzig became a centre of trombone pedagogy; the trombone began to be taught at the new Musikhochschule founded by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy. Mendelssohn's bass trombonist, Karl Traugott Queisser, was the first in a long line of distinguished professors of trombone at the academy in Leipzig and several composers penned works for him, including Ferdinand David (Mendelssohn's concertmaster), Ernst Sachse and Friedrich August Belcke, whose solo works all remain popular today in Germany. Queisser almost single-handedly helped to re-establish the reputation of the trombone in Germany and began a tradition in trombone-playing that is still practised there today. He championed and popularised Christian Friedrich Sattler's new tenorbass trombone during the 1840s, leading to its widespread use in orchestras throughout Germany and Austria. Sattler's influence on trombone design is not to be underestimated; he introduced a significant widening of the bore (the most important since the Renaissance), the innovations of Schlangenverzierungen (snake decorations), the bell garland and the wide bell flare, all of which are features that are still to be found on German-made trombones today and were widely copied during the 19th century.

Many composers were directly influenced by Beethoven's use of trombones, and the 19th century saw the trombones become fully integrated in the orchestra, particularly by the 1840s, as composers such as Franz Schubert, Franz Berwald, Johannes Brahms, Robert Schumann, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Richard Wagner, Hector Berlioz, Gioacchino Rossini, Giuseppe Verdi, Giacomo Puccini, Franz Liszt, Richard Strauss, Anton Bruckner, Gustav Mahler, Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Alexander Borodin, Bedřich Smetana, Antonín Dvořák, Charles Gounod, César Franck, Claude Debussy, Camille Saint-Saëns and many others included trombones in their operas, symphonies and other orchestral compositions.

The 19th century also saw the erosion of the traditional alto/tenor/bass trombone trio in the orchestra. While the alto/tenor/bass trombone trio had been paired with one or two cornetts during the Renaissance and early Baroque periods, the disappearance of the cornett as a partner and eventual replacement by oboe and clarinet did not fundamentally alter the raison d'ętre for the trombones, which was to support the alto, tenor and bass voices of the chorus (typically in an ecclesiastical setting), whose harmonic moving lines were more difficult to pick out than the melodic soprano line. The introduction of the trombones into the orchestra, however, allied them more closely with the trumpets and it did not take long for the alto and bass trombones to be replaced by tenor trombones, although the Germans and Austrians held on to the alto trombone and F or E♭ bass trombone somewhat longer than the French, who came to prefer a section of three tenor trombones until after the Second World War.

By the time the trombone gained a regular footing in the orchestra, players of the instrument were no longer usually employed by a cathedral or court orchestra and were therefore expected to provide their own instrument. Military musicians were provided with instruments by the army and instruments like the long F or E♭ bass trombone remained in use there until approximately the time of the First World War, but the orchestral musician understandably adopted the instrument with the widest range which could be most easily applied to play any of the three trombone parts usually scored in any given work - the tenor trombone. The appearance of the valve trombone during the mid-19th century did little to alter the make-up of the trombone section in the orchestra and though it remained popular almost entirely to the exclusion of the slide instrument in countries such as Italy and Bohemia, the valve trombone was ousted from orchestras in Germany and France. The valve trombone continued to enjoy an extended period of popularity in Italy and Bohemia and composers such as Giuseppe Verdi, Giacomo Puccini, Bedřich Smetana and Antonín Dvořák scored for a section of valve trombones.

Especially with the ophicleide or later the tuba subjoined to the trombone trio during the 19th century, parts scored for the bass trombone rarely descended as low as the parts scored before the addition of either of these new low brass instruments; only in the early 20th century did it regain a degree of independence. Experiments with different constitutions of the trombone section during the 19th and early 20th centuries, including Richard Wagner's addition of a contrabass trombone in Der Ring des Nibelungen and Gustav Mahler's and Richard Strauss' occasional augmentation by adding a second bass trombone to the usual trio of two tenor trombones and one bass trombone, have not had any lasting effect; the vast majority of orchestral works are still scored for the usual mid- to late-19th-century low brass section of two tenor trombones, one bass trombone and one tuba.

[edit] Twentieth century
Further information: List of jazz trombonists
In the 20th Century the trombone maintained its important position in the orchestra with prominent parts in works by Richard Strauss, Gustav Mahler, Arnold Schoenberg, Alban Berg, Maurice Ravel, Darius Milhaud, Olivier Messiaen, Igor Stravinsky, Dmitri Shostakovich, Sergei Rachmaninov, Sergei Prokofiev, Ottorino Respighi, Edward Elgar, Gustav Holst, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Benjamin Britten, William Walton, Jean Sibelius, Carl Nielsen, Leoš Janáček, George Gershwin, Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein and Béla Bartók.

In the second half of the century, new composers began giving back to the trombone a level of importance in solo and chamber music. Pieces such as Edgard Varčse's Octandre, Paul Hindemith's Sonata and Luciano Berio's Sequenza V led the way for lesser-known composers to build a wider repertoire. Popular choices for recital music today include Stjepan Sulek's Vox Gabrieli, Jacques Casterčde's Sonatine and Jean Michel Defaye's Deux Danses. Some well known trombone concertos from this period include works by Derek Bourgeois, Lars-Erik Larsson, Launy Grřndahl, Jan Sandström, Christopher Rouse and Henri Tomasi.

Numerous changes in construction have occurred during the 20th century, including the use of different materials, increases in mouthpiece, bore and bell dimensions, new valve types and different mute types.

Today, the trombone can usually be found in wind ensembles/concert bands, symphony orchestras, marching bands, military bands, brass bands, brass choirs, big bands, etc. It can be part of smaller groups as well, such as brass quintets, quartets, or trios, or trombone trios, quartets, or choirs (though the size of a trombone choir can vary greatly from five or six to twenty or more members). Trombones are also common in swing, jazz, merengue, salsa (prominent examples: Jimmy Bosch and Willie Colón), rock (Bill Reichenbach and James Pankow serving as two prominent examples), R&B, and ska (prominent example: Don Drummond).

[edit] Types
Main article: Types of trombones
The most frequently encountered trombones today are the tenor and bass, though as with other Renaissance instruments such as the recorder, the trombone has been built in every size from piccolo to contrabass.

[edit] Technique
As with all brass instruments, progressive tightening of the lips and increased air pressure allow the player to move to a different partial in the harmonic series. In the first or closed position on a B♭ trombone, the notes in the harmonic series begin with the pedal or fundamental B♭1, followed by B♭2 (one octave higher), F3 (a perfect fifth higher), B♭3 (a perfect fourth higher), D4 (a major third higher), F4 (a minor third higher), A♭4 (a minor third higher; this note is always flat and is not usually played in this position, though it has been the practice in Germany and Austria to do so), B♭4 (a major second higher), C5 (a major second higher), D5 (a major second higher), E♭ (a minor second higher, but very sharp), F5 (a major second higher). Very skilled players with a highly- developed facial musculature can go even higher than this, to G5, A♭5, B♭5 and beyond.

In the lower range, significant movement of the slide is required between positions, which becomes more exaggerated on lower pitched trombones, but for higher notes the player need only use the first four positions of the slide since the partials are closer together, allowing higher notes to be played in alternate positions. As an example, F4 (at the bottom of the treble clef) may be played in first, fourth or sixth position on a B♭ trombone. The note E1 (or the lowest E on a standard 88-key piano keyboard) is the lowest attainable note on a 9' B♭ tenor trombone, requiring a full 2.24 m of tubing. On trombones without an F attachment, there is a gap between B♭1 (the fundamental in first position) and E2 (the first harmonic in seventh position). Skilled players can produce so-called "falset" notes between these, but the sound is relatively weak and not usually used in performance.

Because of the slide's continuous variation, the trombone is one of the few wind instruments that can produce a true glissando, by moving the slide without interrupting the airflow.

[edit] Notation
Unlike most other brass instruments, the trombone is not usually a transposing instrument. Prior to the invention of valve systems, most brasses were limited to playing one overtone series at a time; altering the pitch of the instrument required manually replacing a section of tubing (called a "crook") or picking up an instrument of different length. Their parts were transposed according to which crook or length-of-instrument they used at any given time, so that a particular note on the staff always corresponded to a particular partial on the instrument. Trombones, on the other hand, have used slides since their inception. As such, they have always been fully chromatic, so no such tradition took hold, and trombone parts have always been notated at concert pitch (with one exception, discussed below). Also, it was quite common for trombones to double choir parts; reading in concert pitch meant there was no need for dedicated trombone parts.

Trombone parts are typically notated in bass clef, though sometimes also written in tenor clef or alto clef. The use of alto clef is usually confined to orchestral first trombone parts intended for the alto trombone, with the second (tenor) trombone part written in tenor clef and the third (bass) part in bass clef. As the alto trombone declined in popularity during the 19th century, this practice was gradually abandoned and first trombone parts came to be notated in the tenor or bass clef. Some Russian and Eastern European composers wrote first and second tenor trombone parts on one alto clef staff (the German Robert Schumann was the first to do this). Examples of this practice are evident in scores by Igor Stravinsky, Sergei Prokofiev, Dmitri Shostakovich. Trombone parts may contain both bass and tenor clef or bass and alto clef sections.

An accomplished performer today is expected to be proficient in reading parts notated in bass clef, tenor clef, alto clef, and (more rarely) treble clef in C, with the British brass band performer expected to handle treble clef in B♭ as well.

[edit] Brass bands
In brass band music, the tenor trombone is treated as a transposing instrument in B♭ and reads the treble clef. This puts the notes in exactly the same staff position as they would be if the music were written in a (non-transposing) tenor clef, though the key signature must be adjusted. This is no mere coincidence, for brass bands used to employ a section of alto, tenor and bass trombones in the early to mid-19th century, later replacing the alto with a tenor trombone, all the while notated in the corresponding clefs. Eventually a decision was taken in the early 20th century to replace the tenor clef with the transposing B♭ treble clef in order to aid new starters to integrate more quickly and effectively into the brass band, though the bass trombone, then in G, remained (and is still) notated in concert pitch bass clef. (Company bands used B♭ and E♭ treble clef notation for many instruments in the band to allow players to more easily switch instruments when personnel changed.)

A variety of mutes can be used with the trombone to alter its timbre. Many are held in place with the use of cork grips, including the straight, cup, harmon and pixie mutes. Some fit over the bell, like the bucket mute. In addition to this, mutes can be held in front of the bell and moved to cover more or less area for a wah-wah effect. Mutes used in this way include the "hat" (a metal mute shaped like a bowler) and plunger (which looks like, and often is, the rubber suction cup from a sink or toilet plunger).

[edit] Variations in construction
[edit] Bells
Trombone bells (and sometimes slides) may be constructed of different brass mixtures. Some believe that materials affect tone quality and timbre. The most common material is yellow brass (70% copper, 30% zinc), but other materials include rose brass (85% copper, 15% zinc) and red brass (90% copper, 10% zinc). Some manufacturers offer interchangeable bells. Tenor trombone bells are usually between 7 and 9 inches in diameter, the most common being sizes from 7˝ to 8˝ inches. The smallest sizes are found in small jazz trombones and older narrow bore instruments, while the larger sizes are common in orchestral models. Bass trombone bells can be as large as 10˝" or more, though are usually either 9˝ in or 10 in diameter. The bell may be constructed out of two separate brass sheets or out of one single piece of metal and hammered on a mandrel until the part is shaped correctly. The edge of the bell may be finished with or without a piece of bell wire to secure it, which also affects the tone quality; most bells are built with bell wire. Occasionally, trombone bells are made from solid sterling silver.

[edit] Valve attachments
[edit] Valves

A valve tromboneSome trombones have valves instead of a slide (see valve trombone). Slide trombone valve attachments may be fitted with rotary valves or sometimes with piston or disc valves, which are modern variations on types of valve invented during the 1820s, but discarded at the time in favour of the rotary valve and the Périnet or piston valve.

[edit] Tubing
More often than not, tenor trombones with an F attachment, or trigger, have a larger bore through the attachment than through the 'straight' section (the portion of the trombone through which the air flows when the attachment is not engaged). Typically, for orchestral instruments, the slide bore is 0.547" and the attachment tubing bore is 0.562". A wide variety of valve attachments and combinations are available. Valve attachment tubing usually incorporates a small tuning slide so that the attachment tubing is able to be tuned separately from the rest of the instrument. Most B♭/F tenor and bass trombones include a tuning slide long enough to lower the pitch to E with the valve tubing engaged, enabling the production of B2. Whereas older instruments fitted with valve attachments usually had the tubing coiled rather tightly in the bell section (closed wrap or traditional wrap), modern instruments usually have the tubing kept as free as possible of tight bends in the tubing (open wrap), resulting in a freer response with the valve attachment tubing engaged.

[edit] Tuning
Some trombones are tuned through a mechanism in the slide section rather than via a separate tuning slide in the bell section. This method preserves a smoother expansion from the start of the bell section to the bell flare. The tuning slide in the bell section requires two portions of cylindrical tubing in an otherwise conical part of the instrument, which affects the tone quality.

[edit] Slides
Common and popular bore sizes for trombone slides are 0.500", 0.508", 0.525" and 0.547" for tenor trombones, and 0.562" for bass trombones. The slide may also be built with a dual bore configuration, in which the bore of the second leg of the slide is slightly larger than the bore of the first leg, producing a step-wise conical effect. The most common dual bore combinations are 0.481"-0.491", 0.500"-0.508", 0.508"-0.525", 0.525"-0.547", 0.547"-0.562" for tenor trombones, and 0.562"-0.578" for bass trombones.

[edit] Mouthpiece
The mouthpiece is a separate part of the trombone and can be interchanged with similarly-sized trombones from different manufacturers. Mouthpiece dimensions vary in length, diameter, rim shape, and cup depth. Each variation affects timbre (tone quality), and is a highly personal decision of advanced trombone players. Typically, a symphonic trombonist will choose a mouthpiece with a deeper cup and sharper inner rim shape in order to produce a rich, full-textured tone quality that is desired in most symphony orchestras. A jazz trombonist, on the other hand, may choose a shallower cup in order to achieve a thinner, less Teutonic tone quality. However, these decisions vary from player to player.

[edit] Regional variations
[edit] Germany and Austria
German trombones have been built in a wide variety of bore and bell sizes and differ substantially from American designs in many aspects. From the mouthpiece to the bell, there is a great deal of difference in how the traditional German Konzertposaune is designed. The mouthpiece is typically rather small and is placed into a slide section that uses very long leadpipes of at least 12"-24". The whole instrument is often made of gold brass and this naturally characterises the sound, which is usually rather dull compared with British, French or American designs. While bore sizes were considered large in the 19th century, German trombones have altered very little over the last 150 years and are now typically somewhat smaller than their American counterparts. Bell sizes remain very large in all sizes of German trombone and in bass trombones may exceed 10" in diameter. Valve attachments in tenor and bass trombones were traditionally engaged via a thumb-operated rotary valve, using a leather thong rather than a metal lever. While older models with this feature are still found, modern variants use the metal lever. As with other German and Austrian brass instruments, rotary valves are used to the exclusion of almost all other types of valve, even in valve trombones. Other features often found on German trombones include long water keys and snake decorations on the slide and bell U-bows.

Most trombones actually played in Germany today, especially by amateurs, are in fact built in the American fashion, as those are much more widely available and thus far cheaper.

[edit] France
French trombones were built in the very smallest bore sizes up to the end of the Second World War and whilst other sizes were made there, the French usually preferred the tenor trombone to any other size. French music, therefore, usually employed a section of three tenor trombones up to the mid-20th century. Tenor trombones produced in France during the 19th and early 20th centuries featured bore sizes of around 0.450", small bells of not more than 6" in diameter, as well as a funnel-shaped mouthpiece slightly larger than that of the cornet or horn. French tenor trombones were built in both C and B♭, altos in D♭, sopranos in F, piccolos in high B♭, basses in G and E♭, contrabasses in B♭.

[edit] Didactics
In recent years, several makers have begun to market compact B♭/C trombones that are especially well suited for young children learning to play the trombone who cannot reach the outer slide positions. The trigger also helps keep C in tune. It is much easier to have the trigger so that you can play the note at the first position rather than having to "guess" where the slide would go at sixth position. Their fundamental note is C, but they have a short valve attachment that puts them in B♭ and is open when the trigger is not depressed. While they have no seventh slide position, C and B natural may be comfortably accessed on the first and second positions by using the trigger. A similar design ("Preacher model") was marketed by C.G. Conn in the 1920s, also under the Wurlitzer label. Currently, B♭/C trombones are available from German makers Günter Frost, Thein and Helmut Voigt. as well as the Yamaha Corporation[1].

The cornet is a brass instrument very similar to the trumpet, distinguished by its conical bore, compact shape, and mellower tone quality. The most common cornet is a transposing instrument in B♭. It is not related to the medieval cornett or cornetto.

The cornet was originally derived from the post horn. Sometimes it is called a cornopean, which refers to the earliest cornets with the Stölzel valve system.

This instrument could not have been developed without the improvement of piston valves by Heinrich Stölzel and Friedrich Blühmel. In the early 19th century, these two instrument makers almost simultaneously invented the modern valves, as still used today. They jointly applied for a patent and were granted this for a period of ten years. The first notable virtuoso player was Jean Baptiste Arban, who studied the cornet extensively and published La grande méthode complčte de cornet ŕ piston et de saxhorn, commonly referred to as the Arban method, in 1864. Up until the early 20th century, the trumpet and cornet coexisted in musical ensembles. In symphonic repertoire one will often find separate parts for both trumpet and cornet. As several instrument builders made improvements to both instruments, they started to look and sound more alike. The modern day cornet is used in brass bands, concert bands, and in specific symphonic repertoire that requires a more mellow sound.

The name cornet is derived from corne, meaning horn, itself from Latin cornus.[citation needed]

[edit] Ensembles with cornets
[edit] Brass band (British style)
British style brass band ensembles consist completely of brass instruments (except for the percussion section). The cornet is the leading melodic instrument in this ensemble and trumpets are never used. The ensemble consists of about thirty musicians, including nine B♭ cornets and one E♭ cornet (soprano cornet) in the higher registers.

[edit] Concert band
The cornet also features in the British-style concert band, unlike the American concert band or wind band, where it is replaced by the trumpet. This slight difference in instrumentation derives from the British concert band's heritage in military bands, where the highest brass instrument is always the cornet. There are usually four to six B♭ cornets present in a concert band, but no E♭ instrument, as this role is taken by the E♭ clarinet.


Cornet that looks like a French horn[edit] Fanfare orkest
Fanfare orkesten ("fanfare orchestras"), only found in the Netherlands, Belgium and Northern France, use the complete saxhorn family of instruments. The standard instrumentation includes both the cornet and the trumpet; however, in recent decades, the cornet has largely been replaced by the trumpet.

[edit] Jazz ensemble
In old style jazz bands, the cornet was preferred to the trumpet, but from the swing era onwards it has been largely replaced by the trumpet, although it has never passed completely out of use. The cornet is now rarely found in big bands mainly because of its limited volume and less piercing tone in comparison to the trumpet. A growing taste for louder and more aggressive sounding instruments has been the chief cause of this trend, especially since the advent of bebop in the post World War II era.

The legendary jazz pioneer Buddy Bolden played the cornet, and Louis Armstrong, probably the best-known jazz cornetist, started off on the cornet as well, but later switched to the trumpet. Cornetists such as Bubber Miley and Rex Stewart contributed substantially to the Duke Ellington Orchestra's early sound. Other influential jazz cornetists include King Oliver, Bix Beiderbecke, Ruby Braff and Nat Adderley. Notable performances on cornet by players generally associated with the trumpet include Freddie Hubbard's on Empyrean Isles by Herbie Hancock and Don Cherry's on The Shape of Jazz to Come by Ornette Coleman.

[edit] Relationship to trumpet
The cornet was invented by adding valves to the post horn in 1814. The valves allowed for melodic playing throughout the register of the cornet. Trumpets were slower to adopt the new valve technology, so for the next 100 years or more, composers often wrote separate parts for trumpet and cornet. The trumpet would play fanfare-like passages, while the cornet played more melodic passages. The modern trumpet has valves that allow it to play the same notes and fingerings as the cornet.

Cornets and trumpets made in a given key (usually the key of B♭) play at the same pitch, and the technique for playing the instruments is nearly identical. However, cornets and trumpets are not entirely interchangeable, as they differ in timbre. Also available, but usually seen only in the brass band, is an E♭ soprano model, pitched a fourth above the standard B♭. There is usually only one E♭ cornet in a band, adding an extreme high register to the brass band sound. It can be effective in cutting through even the loudest tutti climax.

Unlike the trumpet, which has a cylindrical bore up until the bell section, the tubing of the cornet has a mostly conical bore, starting very narrow at the mouthpiece and gradually widening towards the bell. The conical bore of the cornet is primarily responsible for its characteristic warm, mellow tone, which can be distinguished from the more penetrating sound of the trumpet. The conical bore of the cornet also makes it more agile than the trumpet when playing fast passages, but correct pitching is often less assured. The cornet is often preferred for young beginners as it is easier to hold, with its centre of gravity much closer to the player.


A drawing of a cornet from Webster's Dictionary 1911.The cornet in the illustration is a short model traditional cornet, also known as a "Shepherd's crook" shaped model. These are most often large–bore instruments with a rich mellow sound. There is also a long-model cornet, usually with a smaller bore and a brighter sound, which is closer to a trumpet in appearance. The Shepherd's Crook model is preferred by cornet traditionalists. The long-model cornet is generally used in concert bands in the United States, but has found little following in British-style brass and concert bands.

[edit] Playing/technique
Like the trumpet and all other modern brass wind instruments, the cornet makes a sound when the player vibrates ("buzzes") the lips in the mouthpiece, creating a vibrating column of air in the tubing. The frequency of the air column's vibration can be modified by changing the lip aperture or "embouchure". In addition, the column of air can be lengthened by engaging one or more valves, thus lowering the pitch.

Without valves, the player could only produce a harmonic series of notes like those played by the bugle and other "natural" brass instruments. These notes are far apart for most of the instrument's range, making diatonic and chromatic playing impossible except in the extreme high register. The valves change the length of the vibrating column and provide the cornet with the ability to play chromatically.

Cornet mouthpieces differ from trumpet mouthpieces; they have a shorter shank, and smaller throat to fit the smaller mouthpiece receiver. The cup size of the mouthpiece is often deeper than the trumpet's.

Bounty (brand) is a paper towel product manufactured by Proctor & Gamble in the United States of America

[edit] Sale of British rights
In 2007 P&G sold the UK rights to the product Bounty to Swedish manufacturer SCA on the understanding that SCA would rebrand the product to their own name within a limited time period. Consequently the product on sale as "Bounty" in the UK has become rebranded as Plenty (brand). P&G retain all rights to the name "Bounty" and their product remains on sale under that name in the USA.

I wasn't talking about you. It was pele with quick one-liners in the soccer question thread I was referring to. Oh crap, I have spent too long explaining myself. I bet he has taken the lead again.

real quick, before that work thing. my problem with uk fans is that EVERYONE in that state roots for them (outside louisville), yet 90% of them can't name more than two players on the team. i know that happens with alot of state schools but i'm tired of people that don't generally care about sports talking [censored] when uk wins. yet they can't name one player on the team.

For those that missed yesterday's foray.

OK, THIS post is a 100 post lead. But it is meaningless. There are no moral victories and we're finished. Kaput. Done. Humiliated.

Sure, he's got one tank division that's pretty good-- must be a bunch of German Panzies or whatever.

But he can't be everywhere, all the time. Plus, the quality is so,,, Ford Motor Copmany.

Does not matter. He has to beat us in this post count and match each and every new thread with one of his own and beat the post count in each respective thread. He has no chance.

Except he does not properly follow the rules of engagement but none the less. He has to match every new thread and the beat the post count on each new thread. We took over his thread so he is wasting his time over there doing one word replies. He is toast and just does not know it.

01, i said this in another thread but what is EOI's organizational chart?
Posted by: jayhwk01

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/29/09 09:14 PM

Good Question.

Here is the story....

Mr. Randolph (DC) sort of started this party but died after one post.

Mr. Washington (Wisky) and Myself (Mr. Jefferson) picked up the mantle and created the EOI.

Geezer was the early court Jester but he was banished to the Gorgongala Salt Peter mines for not being funny.

After that it was just minions....Just Minions.

Now we have some minions rising fast out of the ranks and becoming trusted officers and generals.

You sir may count yourself among that number. In fact as of right now you may consider yourself a full bird Colonel in the EOI.....generalship is yours if you keep this up.

Regards,

Mr. Jefferson.
Posted by: jayhwk01

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/29/09 09:19 PM

Oh and one more thing. Yours is the first and to date the ONLY promotion I have personally given and is in fact well past Chief Executive Henchman. Congratulations...you have earned Colonel.
Posted by: jayhwk01

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/29/09 09:30 PM

Oh but if you prefer the minions to call you Colonel Henchman by all means do as you please. Rank has its privileges.
Posted by: t_jayhawk

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/29/09 09:46 PM

thank you, sir.
as a general rule i would prefer to have the minions informally address me as colonel. however, i feel that theno1 needs to address his elders such as me by my full title. so, no1, it is colonel henchman to you.
Posted by: jayhwk01

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/29/09 09:52 PM

As I said...rank has it's perks. Mr.No1 you will address the Colonel as Mr. Colonel Henchman until he instructs you otherwise.

Regards,

Mr. Jefferson.

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 09:39 AM

I Have the Body of John Wilkes Booth

Like Marlon Brando, but bigger.
You'll find that creature at the bottom of the deep down Susquehanna River.
This one I had stood right on up to me,
Tore out his hook and declared himself a prodigy.
But oh no, fishing ain't what it used to be.
I've seen some bad years, but this one is just killing me.
One little nibble in thirteen years,
I really pack 'em in.
This one I had, I seen it in dreams,
All shacked up with lightning and horizon beams.
Well I bring 'em on up, and then I pack 'em on in
In all the places I've been,
And I swear it's never been like this before,
Least not since 19 and 44.
But today, I made a sick discovery,
Lead box in Sassafras Cove.
Well I brought him on up and then I packed him on in, oh yes,
Now I'm really cashing in.
Wash of the Chesapeake and Appalachian Blue Range,
I have discovered the body of John Wilkes Booth.
Yes, it's true, I have Mr. Booth.
Everybody got to make a living somehow.
Do I hear a million?
Well I bring 'em on up and then I pack 'em on in.

Two worthwhile observations: though our lead is only 25 in "most posts to one thread" we still have an insurmountable lead in total forum posts and number of threads begun. LEGITIMATE threads discussing other sports.

Moreover, the thread which their call "theirs" was, in fact, STARTED by a top lieutenant of the EOI.

I noted that yesterday as well. We actually own both top threads and they are just adding to it constantly. The funny part is pwhitt is whining about us "ruining" his beloved forum but he is not talking about soccer at all with his one word sock posts. Interesting.

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 10:28 AM

As we always say in our press releases, nothing we do in any way prevents the discussion of soccer.

We don't even post on the soccer thread, except to engage in some detente to try and mitigate the war-torn state of the forum.

Soccerites are so intolerant.

I think pwhitt is tired or finally realized he is driving up the post count on a thread we own. Some are a little slower than others but glad to see he might be coming around.
Posted by: WisconsinJayhawk

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 11:34 AM

Oh, I have tremendous respect for pwhat, even though I have taken to calling him a satirical variation of his actual screen name.

But that kokopele and gator'fraid irk me a bit with their illegal, unethical, hardly sporting one word posts. If people really believed in the casue, actual pre-existing posters would rally to the flag, as they have to the EOI flag.

I wish to extend to pwhat (soon to be pwhitt again should negotiatons go well) the thorn branch of Evil Harmony. His effort was valiant, and the history books aobut EOI shall reflect this in the footnotes.

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 11:36 AM

Just another post here to counterbalance the one I just put on EOI's other soccer question thread. David Robinson and Tim Duncan, they are.
Posted by: jayhwk01

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 11:37 AM

pwhat in reality is also one of my favorite posters (shhh don't tell him) despite our sometimes heated disagreement over futbol'

At some point I hope he accepts our most gracious thorny branch and adds to our many next soccer question threads. His sarcasm and witty humor would be a welcome addition to EOI.

Yes.....

However, Mr. Jefferson and I have infiltrated that board very well......

While many more viewers and threads, it's still a relatively small number of citizens that dwell there.

Plus last week I had requested a promotion to moderator there, I will have insight on the inner workings and can create havok in their gov't as you begin your assault. (if I'm granted)

Whatever your course of action the final two should be Men's BB and Smacktalk due to the sheer numbers and ferocity of those citizens.

The British victory spectacularly confirmed the naval supremacy that Britain had established during the past century and was achieved in part through Nelson's departure from the prevailing naval tactical orthodoxy, which involved engaging an enemy fleet in a single line of battle parallel to the enemy to facilitate signalling in battle and disengagement, and to maximize fields of fire and target areas.

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 02:39 PM

The Limeys had 3 firsts, 4 seconds, and 20 thirds. (27 Ships-o' the Line)

The Francish had 4 firsts and 29 thirds (33 Ships-o' the Line)

The Spanish first rates were bigger than anything the Brits had.

Nelson was outnumbered 30,000 men to 17, 000 and 2.568 guns to 2,148 guns.
Posted by: WisconsinJayhawk

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 02:39 PM

Nelson instead divided his smaller force into two columns directed perpendicularly against the larger enemy fleet, with decisive results.

Nelson was mortally wounded during the battle, becoming Britain's greatest war hero. The commander of the joint French and Spanish forces, Admiral Pierre de Villeneuve, was captured along with his ship Bucentaure. Spanish Admiral Federico Gravina escaped with the remnant of the fleet, and succumbed months later to wounds he sustained during the battle.

Since all cannon are different size, i always found it odd that ships were measured by tonnage and # of guns, but seldom by the total weight of a volley of shot. Which is really more relevant in many ways. A 32 pounder will do a lot more than a six pounder, but they both rate as one gun.

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 02:49 PM

Ships were rated earlier on their complement (crew size), beginning in 1626, rather than number of guns. After 1660, the number of guns were used. 90 guns once meant a first rate ship until 1801, when 100 became the minimum.

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 02:51 PM

A First to Third Rate ship was regarded as a "ship-of-the-line". The First and Second Rates were three-deckers, that is, they had three continuous decks of guns (on the lower deck, middle deck and upper deck), as well as smaller weapons on the quarterdeck, forecastle and poop. The notable exception to this rule being ships such as the Santisima Trinidad of Spain, which had 120 guns and four gun decks. Third Rates, those of 80 guns, were likewise three-deckers from the 1690s until the early 1750s, but both before this period and subsequent to it, 80-gun ships were built as two-deckers. All the other Third Rates, with 74 guns or less, were likewise two-deckers, with just two continuous decks of guns (on the lower deck and upper deck), as well as smaller weapons on the quarterdeck, forecastle and (if they had one) poop.
Posted by: oreadical

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 02:52 PM

The smaller Fourth Rates, of about 50 or 60 guns on two decks, were ships-of-the-line until 1756, when it was felt that such 50-gun ships were now too small for pitched battles. The larger Fourth Rates of 60 guns continued to be counted as ships-of-the-line, but few new ships of this rate were added, the 60-gun Fourth Rate being superseded over the next few decades by the 64-gun Third Rate. The Navy did retain some Fourth Rates for convoy escort, or as flagships on far-flung stations; it also converted some East Indiamen to that role.
Posted by: oreadical

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 02:52 PM

The smaller two deckers originally blurred the distinction between a Fourth Rate and a Fifth Rate. At the low end of the Fourth Rate one might find the two-decker 50-gun ships from ca.1756. The high end of the Fifth Rate would include two-deckers of 40- or 44-guns (from 1690) or even the demi-batterie 32-gun and 36-gun ships of the 1690-1730 period. The Fifth Rates at the start of the 18th century were generally "demi-batterie" ships, carrying a few heavy guns on their lower deck (which often used the rest of the lower deck for row ports) and a full battery of lesser guns on the upper deck. However, these were gradually phased out, as the low freeboard (i.e., the height of the lower deck gunport sills above the waterline) meant that in rough weather it was often impossible to open the lower deck gunports.

Posted by: oreadical

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 02:53 PM

Fifth and Sixth Rates were never included among ships-of-the-line. The middle of the 18th century saw the introduction of a new Fifth Rate type - the classic frigate, with no ports on the lower deck, and the main battery disposed solely on the upper deck.
Posted by: oreadical

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 02:53 PM

Sixth Rate ships were generally useful as convoy escorts, for blockade duties and the carrying of dispatches; their small size made them less suited for the general cruising tasks the Fifth Rate frigates did so well. Essentially there were two groups of Sixth Rates. The larger category comprised the Sixth Rate frigates of 28 guns, carrying a main battery of twenty-four 9-pounder guns, as well as four smaller guns on their superstructures. The second comprised the "Post-ships" of between 20 and 24 guns. These were too small to be formally counted as frigates (although colloquially often grouped with them), but still required a post-captain (i.e. an officer holding the substantive rank of Captain) as their commander.
Posted by: oreadical

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 02:54 PM

The rating system did not handle vessels smaller than the Sixth Rate. The remainder were simply "unrated". The larger of the unrated vessels were generally called sloops; but be warned that nomenclature is quite confusing for unrated vessels, especially when dealing with the finer points of "ship sloop", "brig sloop", "sloop-of-war" or even "corvette" (the last a French term that the British Navy did not use until the 1840s). Technically the category of "sloop-of-war" included any unrated combatant vessel - in theory, the term even extended to bomb vessels and fireships. During the Napoleonic Wars, the Royal Navy increased the number of sloops in service by some 400% as it found these small vessels useful for escorting convoys, combating privateers, and themselves taking prizes.
Posted by: oreadical

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 02:55 PM

From 1756 on, the Royal Navy no longer classified smaller two-deckers of the Fourth Rate (primarily the 50-gun ships) as ships of the line. It generally classified them, like all smaller warships used primarily in the role of escort and patrol ("convoys and cruising") vessels, as "cruisers", a term that covered everything from the smaller two-deckers down to the small gun-brigs and cutters. The larger Fifth Rate, generally two-decked ships of 40 or 44 guns (and thus technically not "frigates", although 40-gun frigates were also built during the Napoleonic War), also fell into this category

Posted by: oreadical

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 02:57 PM

Funny you should ask...

Rating was not the only system of classification used. Throughout the Age of Sail the definition of the term "ship" required it to be a vessel being square-rigged on three masts. Sailing vessels with only two masts or a single mast were technically not 'ships', and in the sailing era would never have been described as such. Vessels with fewer than three masts were unrated sloops, generally two-masted vessels rigged as snows or ketches (in the first half of the 18th century), or brigs in succeeding eras. However some sloops were three-masted or ship-rigged, and these were known as ship sloops.

Posted by: oreadical

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 02:58 PM

Vessels were also sometimes classified according to the substantial rank of her commanding officer. For instance, when the commanding officer of a gun-brig or even a cutter was a lieutenant with the status of master-and-commander, the custom was to recategorise the vessel as a sloop.

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 03:17 PM

The Bellybutton Lint Survey Results

The results of our world-first bellybutton lint survey can be easily summarised as follows:

You're more likely to have BBL if you're male, older, hairy, and have an innie.

4799 people answered our survey. They were 58.1% male (2790) and 41.9% female (2009). Only 66% (3169) of these people had BBL.

Age - We asked people into which five-year age group they fitted, ranging from 16 to 75. The numbers in each age category dropped off evenly with age. There were the greatest number of respondents (768) in the 16-20 group, and the lowest (3) in the 71-75 group. There were still enough in the 51-55 age group (62) to do meaningful statistics. The clear result was that the older you get, the more BBL you get.

Sex - The majority of those with BBL were male (73%, 2313), while the minority were female (27%, 856). Males tend to have more hair than females, so this fits our Hair-Causes- BBL Theory.

Degree of overall hairiness - Hairiness seemed to be related to BBL. About 97% of those who had BBL were either "not very hairy", "moderately hairy" or "very hairy".

Surprisingly for the Hair-Causes-BBL Theory, 3% with "no hair" or "very little hair" also had BBL. Perhaps these people with very small amounts of belly hair wore tight clothes, which helped carry the lint towards the belly button. Once it fell into the belly button, it wouldn't easily come out again. But perhaps there are some other factors involved . . .

Do you have a snail trail? - About 80% of people who have BBL also have a Snail Trail of hair leading up from their pubic hair to their belly button.

Degree of snail trail hairiness - In general, women have pubic hair that looks like an inverted pyramid, or a map of Tasmania, with a sharp cut-off at the top. In general, men have pubic hair with a tapering tail of hair reaching up towards the belly button. However, there is an overlap between the belly hair of men and women - some men have no Snail Trail at all, and some women have a small Snail Trail. Most of the people who did have a Snail Trail had only a moderate one. Our results are a little confusing. It seems that if you have too much belly hair, or too little belly hair, this somehow inhibits the movement of BBL into the belly button. Perhaps a thickly forested abdomen traps the BBL, while an almost bald abdomen doesn't provide enough forward traction.

Innie vs outies -
Your normal belly button is concave, with an attractive upper hood. The base of the belly button usually joins onto the muscle wall of the abdomen. Around the belly button there is subcutaneous fat. In the "outie", there is a protuberant mass of subcutaneous scar tissue between the bottom of the belly button and the muscle wall of the abdomen. This scar turns the concave "innie" into a convex "outie".

Innie/Outie? - About 96% of those with BBL have an innie belly button. Unfortunately, we don't know the ratio of innies and outies in the general population.

So we really don't know how to interpret this 96% figure.

Describe your build - There was no real correlation between BBL and a person's overall build.

Skin colour - There was a slight correlation between skin colour and BBL colour. People with darker skin tones had darker lint. People with lighter skin tones had lightercoloured lint. However, the correlation is so small that it is probably within experimental error.

Skin type - There was no real correlation between skin type and BBL. About 13.5% said they had dry skin, 70% had "normal" skin, and 15.9% had oily skin.

Do you have a navel ring? - Of the people who have BBL, 92% did not have a navel ring, and 8% did.

There were many fascinating insights in the 'any-other-comments' section from people who had a navel ring. Many of them wrote that they did have BBL prior to getting the navel ring. But once the navel ring was installed, the BBL would suddenly either be dramatically reduced, or totally disappear. It seems to us that BBL was originally transferred into the navel by the Snail Trail, or by friction between the clothing and the belly. The presence of the navel ring might act like a centre pole on a circus tent, and keep the clothing from touching the skin around the navel. So the BBL wouldn't get carried over that last little section to the belly button.

What colour is your bellybutton lint and is it related to your clothing colour? - About 37% of people with BBL said that the colour of their BBL was related to the colour of their clothing. About half of these people had blue BBL. Most people wear various shades of blue. But we really can't explain why some people consistently have BBL in a colour that is not present in their clothing.

Do you wash your clothes in a top-loader or a front-loader? - There is a fundamental difference in how top-loaders and front-loaders treat your clothes. A Choice magazine survey showed that in general, a top-loading machine can either be gentle, or can remove a lot of dirt from the clothes - but it can't do both at the same time. Only a front-loading washing machine can be both gentle and thorough. About 80% of people used a toploading machine, 16% used a frontloader, and about 3% said they didn't know.

Again, we don't know what the percentages are of the different types of washing machines in the general community - so we can't really interpret these results. However, Dr Karl has heard many anecdotes that when people have changed from a top-loader to a front-loader, the production of BBL drops dramatically. A typical story is that of a Perth taxi driver. He told Dr Karl that while he was travelling around Australia for 18 months, and using fairly rough top-loading machines in caravan parks, he had continuous BBL. As soon as he settled in Perth and bought his own front-loading machine, his production of BBL dropped to zero. Presumably, a nongentle, top-loading washing machine will loosen up the fibres in your clothing and make them liable to come loose and travel to your belly button.

Did you undertake the hair-free highway experiement? If yes, did you notice a decrease in belly button lint? - 182 people took part in the Hair-Free Highway Experiment. 40% noticed a decrease in BBL levels. 24% did not notice any difference, and 35% didn't know. The 35% unknowns is such a huge percentage that we are not quite sure how to analyse this component of the experiment. Anecdotally, it seems as though the Snail Trail does have something to do with BBL levels. We need further research.

Help! One my sherpas peed in my closet!!! Do I rub his nose in it?

What do I feed them? All I got are some moldy peaches, some Guy's nuts, and some old kandy korn. Are they particular?

Mr. EastCoast is working on our official seal. I do like the automaton with rickshaw.

Also, after some consideration I have elected to offer you two virgins of your choice.

So with your sherpas as you please. They are your servants. Remember tho' the help you climb rugged mountains. Same with the two virgins I gave you. They are for you to do with as you please....that is standard EOI policy.

quick funny story.
tonight coming back from my 8 year old's basketball practice, he was asking about the movie (gremlins) that my wife had rented to watch as a family. he asked what a gremlin was and before i could tell him, he said,
"they are like EVIL MINIONS, aren't they?"

i think i have trained him well.

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 10:05 PM

Nepotism would be totally unfair.

Just the sort of thing an Evil Empire would do. We're in for fast tracking the sire and spawn of upper management.

Overlord is my job, however. I don't plan on retiring soon.

But it helps to learn the business from the ground up, and I'd expect that he'd learn the ropes starting in the coal mines as coal toter. That way, he'll know what its like for the peons he crushes in his fist later. It'll be useful experience.

Re: other ku sports.... - 10/30/09 10:22 PM

I concur. As acting field Overlord at the moment, I say we consolidate. Though I wish for peace to reign beneath our mighty boots here in OS, I cannot help but think that a wounded enemy is more dangerous than one at full strength. I would hope that for the sake oif his people, we would not see it, but a surprise 3 AM attack is not out of the question.

See, this is where less practical Evil Overlords have gotten into trouble. Many, in our position, would laugh maniacally and then leave our adversaries in the trap, certain enough of their doom to consider their demise a foregone conclusion.

We will not make that mistake. A little reading on the founding thread, nobody posts over here do they, will show that these philosophies are part and parcel of our corporate soul. They are also in the Manual, Section 3 (pg 112).

Some call it a vacation, I call it training. The mornings were the hardest, up at 3 am and to the hills. It was treacherous, but definitely a team building experience. I suggest we all get together and try it one weekend. The typing expo was unique. They tied each finger to a very intricute set of contraptions overhead and controlled each, until typing required no thought whatsoever. Overall, I would say that I learned a lot, mostly what my mind and fingers are capable of.

I don't know...the K-means nonhierarchical divisive cluster analysis I'm working on is pretty fun.
Posted by: oreadical

Re: other ku sports.... - 11/02/09 10:07 AM

It's nonhierarchical in the sense that clustering stages are not strictly nested as it subdivided a single cluster into many clusters.
Posted by: oreadical

Re: other ku sports.... - 11/02/09 10:08 AM

It also minimizes intracluster distances while maximizing intercluster variances.
Posted by: oreadical

Re: other ku sports.... - 11/02/09 10:09 AM

This method can be contrasted to hierarchical agglomerative methods, such as single link and average link cluster analyses.
Posted by: oreadical

Re: other ku sports.... - 11/02/09 10:10 AM

This method also operates directly with the data, rather than using a similarity matrix.
Posted by: oreadical

Re: other ku sports.... - 11/02/09 10:11 AM

Also, K-means deals with overall clustering, individual cluster centers, and cluster compactness.
Posted by: oreadical

Re: other ku sports.... - 11/02/09 10:11 AM

It finds optimal cluster configurations from one to some user-specified maximum.
Posted by: oreadical

Re: other ku sports.... - 11/02/09 10:12 AM

Each cluster configuration is defined by its centroid.

I am great off the box but I struggle big time with the high irons. 2-5 is not good at all. Need a lot of work on those. Once I hit 7-SW much better.

I used to hit the 1 off the box just to show off. With work and married life, I haven't played in about three years. I imagine how bad I would hit it now. It took a lot of practice to use that 1.

I don't make it out as much as I would like. Luckily, I have friend with a course on his property. Did some mapping for him = free golf for life. Unfortunately, the amount of mowing and the presence of wetlands necessitated that he reduce the number of holes. And the greens aren't really "puttable" although they're getting better. But, hey, it's free.

I see. Well my wife is ONE of my playing partners as well. I figured out pretty early on that if I took her (JUST HER) out every so often I actually got to play more often with my buddies. I get to play a lot for business too so that is nice.

Funny thing is my wife is actually pretty good now and I actually prefer her is a golf partner as opposed to some of my old golf cronies. Took some time and frustration to get to that point but it is great now. Besides my wife is great because she helps me rate the racks of the cart girls....I have it pretty good in the spouse dept.

I see that an Earl Adkins in North Carolina received more than $340,000 in USDA peanut farming subsidies. My theory is the four-inch peanut story is just a cover for fraudulent peanut farming subsidy claims. The man has motive to lie about the size of his peanut.

The earliest attested standard measure is from Egypt and was called the royal cubit (mahe) and was 523 to 525 mm (20.6 to 20.64 inches) in length[2], and was subdivided into 7 palms of 4 digits, giving a 28-part measure in total. Secure evidence for this unit is known from architecture, from at least as early as the construction of the Step Pyramid of Djoser from around 2,700 B.C.

In 1916, during the last years of Ottoman Empire and in the middle of WWI, the German Assyriologist Eckhard Unger found a copper-alloy bar during excavation at Nippur from c. 2650 BC. which he claimed was a measurement standard. This irregularly formed and irregularly marked graduated rule supposedly defined the Sumerian cubit as about 518.5 mm or 20.4 inches, although this does not agree with more secure evidence from the statues of Guduea from the same region. A 30-digit cubit known as a kus was nevertheless known from the 2nd millennium B.C., with a digit-length of about 17.28 mm (more than 0.68 inch).

The Roman cubitus is a six-palm cubit of about 444.5 mm. Twenty-four Roman cubits = thirty-five English feet, so the Roman cubit is about 17.5 inches or 444.5 mm.

The Greek pechys was also a 24-digit cubit. So, the kyrenaikos pechys ("Cyrenaican cubit") measured about 463.1 mm and the metrios pechys ("middle cubit") about 474.2 mm; respectively roughly 25/24 and 16/15 Roman cubits. Other Greek cubits based on different digit measures of other city-states are less important. The Greek 40-digit-measure, called bema, corresponds to the Latin gradus, the step or half-a-pace.

The Arabic Hashimi cubit of about 650.2 mm (25.6 inches) is considered to measure two French feet. Since the established ratio between the French and English foot is about 16 to 15, one can give following equation: 5 Hashimi cubits = 10 French feet = 128 English inches. Also the length of 256 Roman cubits and the length of 175 Hashimi cubits are nearly equivalent.

Re: other ku sports.... - 11/03/09 04:21 PM

The Arabic nil cubit (or black cubit) measured about 540.2 mm. This means 28 (later called) Greek digits of the kyrenaikos pechys = 25/24 of a Roman foot or just 308.7 mm. Thus 175 Roman cubits = 144 black cubits.

The different Jewish cubits are generally borrowed either from Babylonians or Greeks or Romans. In ancient Israel during the First Temple period, the cubit was 428.1 mm (16.85 in.) (= 26/27 Roman cubit). During the Second Temple period, a cubit of about 444.5 mm (17.5 in.) (= Roman cubit) was in general use, but in the sacred areas of the temple a special cubit of 437.6 mm seems to have been used instead (= 63/64 Roman cubit).

It was originally based on measuring by comparing to one's forearm length. The Egyptian hieroglyph for the unit shows this symbol.

The Egyptian cubit was not subdivided into centimetres or inches, but into palms and digits. The cubit was subdivided into 7 'palms' of 4 'digits', making 28 parts in all. The distance between thumb and another finger to the elbow on an average person measures about 24 digits or 6 palms or 1˝ feet. This is about 45 cm or 18 inches. This is sometimes referred to as a "natural cubit" of 1˝ feet and was used in the Roman system of measures and in different Greek systems.

Re: other ku sports.... - 11/03/09 04:28 PM

Over time, various cubits and variations on the cubit have measured:

* 6 palms = 24 digits, i.e. ~45.0 cm or 18 inches (1.50 ft)
* 7 palms = 28 digits, i.e. ~52.5 cm or 21 inches (1.75 ft)[1]
* 8 palms = 32 digits, i.e. ~60.0 cm or 24 inches (2.00 ft)
* 9 palms = 36 digits, i.e. ~67.5 cm or 27 inches (2.25 ft)

It is believed the Great Pyramid was built as a tomb for Fourth dynasty Egyptian pharaoh Khufu and constructed over a 14 to 20 year period concluding around 2540 BC. Khufu's vizier, Hemon, or Hemiunu, is believed by some to be the architect of the Great Pyramid. It is thought that, at construction, the Great Pyramid was originally 280 Egyptian cubits tall, 146.6 meters, (480.97 feet, or about 40 stories) but with erosion and the loss of its pyramidion, its current height is 138.8 m (455 feet). Each base side was 440 royal cubits, 230.5 meters in length, (756.2 feet). A royal cubit measures 0.524 meters. The total mass of the pyramid is estimated at 5.9 million tonnes. The volume, including an internal hillock, is believed to be roughly 2,500,000 cubic meters. Based on these estimates, building this in 20 years would involve installing approximately 800 tonnes of stone every day. The first precision measurements of the pyramid were done by Egyptologist Sir Flinders Petrie in 1880–82 and published as The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh. Almost all reports are based on his measurements. Many of the casing stones and interior chamber blocks of the great pyramid were fit together with extremely high precision. Based on measurements taken on the north eastern casing stones, the mean opening of the joints are only 0.5 millimeters wide (1/50th of an inch).

Re: other ku sports.... - 11/03/09 04:37 PM

The pyramid remained the tallest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years, unsurpassed until the 160 meter tall spire of Lincoln Cathedral was completed c. 1300. The accuracy of the pyramid's workmanship is such that the four sides of the base have a mean error of only 58 millimeter in length. The base is horizontal and flat to within 15 mm. The sides of the square base are closely aligned to the four cardinal compass points (within 4 minutes of arc) based on true north, not magnetic north, and the finished base was squared to a mean corner error of only 12 seconds of arc. The completed design dimensions, as suggested by Petrie's survey and later studies, are estimated to have originally been 280 cubits in height by 440 cubits in length at each of the four sides of its base. These proportions equate to pi/2 to an accuracy of better than 0.05% (corresponding to the approximation of pi; as 22/7). Some Egyptologists consider this to have been the result of deliberate design proportion. Verner wrote, "We can conclude that although the ancient Egyptians could not precisely define the value of pi;, in practise they used it". Petrie, author of ‘The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh', who was the first accurate surveyor of Giza and the excavator and surveyor of the Pyramid of Meidum, concluded: "but these relations of areas and of circular ratio are so systematic that we should grant that they were in the builders design". Earlier in the chapter he wrote more specifically, that: “We conclude therefore that the approximation of 7 to 22 as the ratio of diameter to circumference was recognised”. These proportions equated to the four outer faces sloping by approximately 51.842ş or 51ş 50' 35", which would have been understood and expressed by the Ancient Egyptians as a seked slope of 5 1/2 palms.

Genesis 6:15 tells us the Noah's Ark's dimensions were at least 135 meters long (300 cubits), 22.5 meters wide (50 cubits), and 13.5 meters high (30 cubits). That's 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high. It could have been larger, because several larger-sized cubits were used. But the 45-centimeter (18-inch) cubit is long enough to show the enormous size of the Ark.

Re: other ku sports.... - 11/03/09 04:56 PM

Ezekiel 42:20 So he measured the area on all four sides. It had a wall around it, five hundred cubits long and five hundred cubits wide, to separate the holy from the common.

Ezekiel 45:2 Of this, a section 500 cubits square is to be for the sanctuary, with 50 cubits around it for open land.

To all the minions -

With a little perseverance and dedication, it is quite possible to quickly move up in the ranks of EOI.

Just one short week ago, I had only one sherpa and two virgins. I now command an army of sherpas and harem so expansive, I may deflower a new virgin on a daily basis.

Soon, tuby will fall...

Just wait until your sherpas have to wash and wax your tank division. That is right I said division. Every general should have a division of tanks at his disposal.

Just me, but if Ralph Macchio showed up to wax my tanks wearing that headband, I'd strangle him with it. But, you do as you see fit. I trust your military judgment implicitly.

Joe Louis died
Ronald Reagan (best president EVAR) is wounded.
Pope John Paul (best Pope EVAR) is wounded
MTV debuts
Christopher Cross dominates the music world
Ordinary People (never saw it, sounds sappy) wins Best Picture.

Re: Bowling - 12/16/09 05:38 AM

Here's my dilemma, well, actually it's two fold;

1) I think I could easily win a primary in a mid-term election against this man, however, I think he would have the better chance at a general election victory over whomever the Democratic party chooses. His name recognition alone, he's been in office for 25 years and owns a local business, could defeat a newcomer with a lot of backing in a general election. See this story about money being poured into local elections.. http://www.kentucky.com/latest_news/story/1052347.html Notice the amount of money put in that race. They're trying real hard now to push expanding gambling.

2) The pay would be about half of what I currently make. I have a 20 month old that I wish to spoil in the future and have to decide if the pay would be feasible.

I have spoken with many family members and feel about 60% sure I will throw my name in the race.

Posted by: WisconsinJayhawk

Re: Bowling - 12/17/09 01:20 PM

Good question. After the first one, every post must necessarily involve viewing the previous post, correct? So the minimum number of views would be # of posts minus 1.

If you click "view your post" after posting, then that means there will be a minimum of 2 views for that post-- yours to review what you posted, and the next person who posts on the thread.

I sometimes click "view your post" because I am notorious for typos that I don't check for until after I post.

Still, clearly some poor bastards-- maybe as many as 500-700, according to estimates prepared by Al Gore and the CBO-- clearly clicked on here to see what the hullabaloo was, for this to have 2000+ posts. I am sure they were not disappointed in the least.

subject: most important pm yet

Sent to: Jonathan_Kealing

hey,
i was just wondering if you had decided to make me moderator of the find a ride board yet. the board seems to be failing miserably and i am just the man to help it rise from the ashes. my ticket idea is one of the many ideas that could get that board going.
also, i was wondering if you could change my tag from "pure jayhawk" to "colonel henchman". you probably wouldn't understand the reasons why i want you to do this.
i really don't want to have to go to jnewell with this but you are pressing the issue. it is inevitable that i will be moderator and the sooner the better for the good of the board.

thanks and good wishes,
t_jayhawk

i will get there. my playing has been reduced to once or twice a week. as for being realistic, i place the directional marker in the same place every time and use the same motion. the two times every game where i don't get a strike, i hit the pocket (bowling term) in the perfect spot. it just won't give me the strike.
