Set Break: It is so hard to land on the moon!!!

But India finally did it this year, joining the US, the Soviet Union and China

Japan and Russia both failed this year... It's hard to land on a big rock with no atmosphere :(

At the Integrated Command Control Centre in Varanasi, India, people look on as the country’s Chandrayaan-3 mission approaches the surface of the moon on August 23.

DJ AskTheQuestion 7:03:09 AM
Wishing you all a lovely morning, dear listeners!
TAndy 7:33:38 AM
Pleasant surprise to see you in again
DJ AskTheQuestion 7:38:28 AM
Absolutely great to be here TAndy! Thank you for joining even on this strange morning, holiday lingering
TAndy 8:10:17 AM
As a casual follower of weather discussion and meteorology, I really appreciate the focus on weather for this mic break. The amount of data that's been generated and captured in just the past decade compared to the past has been nothing short of a marvel.
Roffle 8:10:55 AM
Why would you train your dog to out smart you? You just know they will eat you given half a chance. Thinking machines are somehow different is a nutzo bad presumption. Everything eats everything here. Gotta pay attention.
Roffle 8:11:41 AM
It not math, it's not science. It's hunger.
TAndy 8:11:56 AM
A machine lacks consciousness and can be taken away by a simple lack of electron flow.
TAndy 8:11:59 AM
To the point that we can generate models that show how strong and the general area of where a storm can become amazes me.
Roffle 8:12:43 AM
Under Pressure! lol
TAndy 8:13:04 AM
(Doo dododo dododoodoo)
Roffle 8:13:47 AM
High and low pressure zones as the kids say
DJ AskTheQuestion 8:15:02 AM
Computers are a tool, just like hammers and aqueducts and atomic bombs. I advocate responsible use
DJ AskTheQuestion 8:15:30 AM
(really not of atomic bombs, actually, let me take that implication back heavily)
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 8:16:09 AM
that tabla solo must be by Alla Rakha
Roffle 8:16:23 AM
That is true. I like rules and guard rails. A hammer will kill as much as an atomic bomb. That's for sure.
TAndy 8:16:39 AM
Good morning, Sir.
DJ AskTheQuestion 8:16:43 AM
Not sure who should be the philosopher king making the hard decisions, but these things will be developed one way or another
DJ AskTheQuestion 8:16:57 AM
Yes 100% ǝʌɐꓷ!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 8:16:59 AM
good morning, folks
Roffle 8:19:02 AM
Hey ǝʌɐꓷ. Did you just happen to notice the Asian sounding timbales? It's great!
Roffle 8:20:17 AM
That tone from a skin is awesome!
Roffle 8:21:11 AM
If we ain't eating them, we make instruments. Many of my guitars have a bone nut. lol
DJ AskTheQuestion 8:22:12 AM
So many ways guitars can be vegan, or not =O
Roffle 8:24:42 AM
I vegetarian when I was younger. Vegan so kind of fad, but I get it. However, you will die first in a holocaust.
Roffle 8:24:51 AM
I will eat you.
DJ AskTheQuestion 8:24:58 AM
roffle these are vicious words
Roffle 8:25:25 AM
Have you ever been out of NJ?
Roffle 8:26:05 AM
I'm funny. Keep up, lets go...
TAndy 8:27:30 AM
Please do not eat the DJs, as they are coated in vinyl dust which may or may not cause unwarranted side effects.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 8:27:37 AM
@Roffle, sorry I did not pick up on the timbales
Roffle 8:30:26 AM
If this guy bans me, I want all my donations back!
Roffle 8:32:43 AM
I am sure you play the timbales well ǝʌɐꓷ! I think it would be an awesome drum circle channel too.
Roffle 8:38:51 AM
It's such a brutal world. Kindness is an invention as a welcome survival tool for civilizations.
DJ AskTheQuestion 8:39:00 AM
I will never ban you Roffle! not my intention
DJ AskTheQuestion 8:39:27 AM
Also previewed a different track from this album that was totally in Chinese, but here sounds much more Japanese to my untrained ear
Roffle 8:39:45 AM
Okay, no worries mate! I really love the theme of your show btw!
TAndy 8:40:21 AM
Yooooo Chinese Dub??? This is sick
DJ AskTheQuestion 8:40:24 AM
<3 (choking from vinyl dust)
TAndy 8:41:32 AM
Dub music and culture seems to be very well loved by some Eastern communities. People like Goth-Trad in Japan taking the sound and altering it into something unique and amazing.
Roffle 8:42:28 AM
Oh yes, My girlfriend speaks Mandarin, But I don't get Cantonese at all yet. It's like going to Alabama or something.
DJ AskTheQuestion 8:44:46 AM
I speak enough Mandarin to know when I'm listening to Mandarin. Cantonese has more tones, totally different sound, but you can get by with characters
Roffle 8:46:08 AM
Spot on! The tones make me a bit crazy, but I love the inflections!
Roffle 8:57:32 AM
Rouge black holes! Man that shit is coming at us. Might miss by a light year or two, but that would be enough to fuck up. It is truly nuts out there past the atmosphere.
TAndy 9:00:28 AM
Dat segue
Roffle 9:03:29 AM
Poignant and timely.
Zach 9:03:48 AM
These morning origami vibes are pretty cosmic
DJ AskTheQuestion 9:05:06 AM
Whoooooo Zach good morning :)
DJ AskTheQuestion 9:05:13 AM
Long time listeners unite!
Zach 9:05:36 AM
Happy Boxing Day!
Roffle 9:06:47 AM
Speaking of Chinese stuff. LOL
Roffle 9:18:23 AM
Quarks don't care. That's the glue. I went to school for electro-optics. Just my opinion though. I maintain, it is crazy out there past the atmosphere.
DJ AskTheQuestion 9:22:00 AM
Crazy is the technical term :) better to look and see what we learn!
Roffle 9:27:25 AM
I do like what Webb has to offer for sure. It's rich like a cheesecake. Every bit is so good. Fantastic time to be alive. It only gets better. Minus the dummies. Those guys just wont stop being dummies, but oh well.
DJ AskTheQuestion 9:28:00 AM
Smarties in 10,000 BC: These guys just won't stop being dummies!! Except now we have X
Roffle 9:33:01 AM
So true! We seem to keep picking up the pieces and trying to make sense out of everything. Gave us good chemistry though. Mastery even.
Roffle 9:45:31 AM
Magma oceans! That is a wonderfully graphic idea, but glad we're over that.
TAndy 9:45:49 AM
Mmm... Basalt.....
DJ AskTheQuestion 9:48:20 AM
Yes the earth is a kinder place nowadays!
Roffle 9:56:30 AM
Thanks for a smart show. Pardon my intermittent stupidities. Sometimes I put my mouth where my ears should be. Have a great week!
TAndy 9:58:02 AM
Thank you much for the show this morning, it was a welcome surprise. Have a good Tuesday.
DJ AskTheQuestion 10:01:05 AM
I was cut off a bit but you heard all the important stuff :) Cheers and thanks for listening this morning!
