The K.I.S.S. Principle In Action

I firmly believe in the K.I.S.S. Principle (Keep It Simple Stupid!).

Way back in the mid 80's and old guy name Walt at then Martin Marietta taught me the Principle, and I've used it ever since. The idea is to keep things as simple as possible, making them no more complicated than they absolutely have to be.


Around that same time (mid 80's) me and my friend Joe (a fellow engineer) had to go to the Ocala plant to fill in for another engineer (who could not go for some unrecalled reason) to get an ESS Station (Environmental Stress Screening) up and running. Well, it turns out that the station violated the K.I.S.S. BIG TIME. The idea was to vibration test 18 circuit boards at the same time. The buffoon designer of the vibration fixture had it where you mount the circuit boards to be tested onto backplates, and then slide the fixture slots, and then hydraulically clamp the backplates into place.

Trouble was, the vibration data showed that unclamping and reclamping the backplates got totally different vibration data from previous data, meaning the clusterf... of a vibration fixture was totally unusable. The sheot hit the fan when we reported the problem to Management.

So, Joe and I did some research, and found out that they needed to test nowhere near 18 cards at a time; that testing only 6 cards at a time was just fine. So we designed a simple, solid block, that held 3 card on front and 3 on the back. Worked perfectly!

Applying the K.I.S.S. Principle to other aspects of life, I find that it is best to believe in what is real, rather than in what "might" be real. Life is too short to chase your tail over stuff that might not even be real.

No Wonder Hispanics Have To Talk So Seemingly Fast

It takes an incredible amount of Spanish words to make a simple statement, so Hispanics must make up for it by talking incredibly fast, or else they'd never be able to say what they wanted to say.

Example: The warning on the wall of The Home Depot restroom was regarding shoplifting. It took five (5) words in Spanish to simply say "WE PROSECUTE". Weird, eh?

"The Truth Will Set You Free"

Saw this tomfool saying on a church sign.

But what if the truth is that you are going to prison??? ??? ???

Billboard Display

Saw a buffoonish billboard, with a picture of a black child (what does that have to do with it?) that said "2 of 5 Blacks Are abortion!"

I seriously doubt that 2 out of 5 of our living negroidal citizens will be killed by abortion!!!

"IF" what they mean is: "2 of 5 Pre-Human/Potential Blacks Will Be Terminated by Abortion", then I say: It is because 4 out of 5 blacks conceptions are unwanted or inappropriate!!!

"My Boss Is A Jewish Carpenter"

I really feel like asking these buffoons who blindly display that bumper sticker: "Yeah? what did he recently build?"

I also feel like having a bumper sticker made up that reads "My Boss Is A Muslim Plumber". Hehe!

If You Buy Bottled Water, You Are A Doofus! - Plain & Simple

Water is heavy and it wastes a horrific amount of fuel to deliver it to stores in bottles, on top of the wasted petroleum to make the plastic bottles.

If you buy bottled water every week, you are probably spending hundreds of $$$ a year, when you can accomplish the EXACT same thing by spending around $10 a year on a charcoal filter for under the kitchen that takes 5 minutes max to change.

Wise up, people!

Being Against Abortion = Being FOR The Bastardization of the Population

If you are against zygotic or fetal abortion in all cases, it means you are undeniably FOR the bastardization of the population.

There are WAY too many births presented by unwed mothers in the USA.

The 1st line of defense is pregnancy prevention. If you are for pregnancy prevention for unwed females, then you are hypocritical, plain and simple, if you are against the 2nd line of defense: abortion.

In addition, unwed motherhood certainly leads to significantly increased poverty and crime. You are effectively for those too, if you are against all abortion.

It is time to be pragmatic, people!

The Letter "W"

What buffoon decided to name the letter "W" double-u??? It should be called "double-v". True, some lazy people handwriting the letter "W" make it look like a double-u, but this is incorrect; it should have distinct W points, top and bottom!!!

Backroads Georgia Rednecks

In my frequent travels thru Georgia, I often take back roads to go the shortest route, save fuel, and see the countryside. I've noticed that probably 1/2 the road signs in these areas are riddled with bullet holes!!!
