Uffo Q. Tridh’s cosmic dark-energy epiphany.

“Everyone has the right to believe anything they want. And everyone else has the right to find it fucking ridiculous.” –Ricky Gervais

“Life goes by fast. Enjoy it. Calm down. It’s all funny.” – Joan Rivers

Here’s the recording of last Friday night’s (2015-04-03) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.

And here are links to some not necessarily radio-useful but interesting items that I happened upon while putting my show together, that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right.

This child is a natural. When she says, “Put a STOP to–” and simultaneously shoots her hand out to, you know, /put a STOP to/ it, that’s not just practice. This may not be on the level of Chinese toddlers you’ve seen spinning plates and juggling nor Creole toddlers playing the button accordion, leering, farting and smoking a cigar like Victor Borge, but it’s still impressive.

A thrilling ride. This motorcar in operation, roaring, spitting fire, traumatizing the sheep, reminds me of vehicles in Hayao Miyazaki films.

Speaking of which, these aeroplanes clearly are the models for some of Miyazaki’s planes.

“The chemtrails form mini cyclones when mixing with the air, then shoot down in a stream to the land. Men are breathing these chemicals into their lungs and becoming increasingly confused on their homosexuality, having trouble fighting off urges to experiment with their new desires.”

“If our species had started with just two people at the time of the earliest agricultural practices some 10,000 years ago, and increased by one percent per year, today humanity would be a solid ball of flesh many thousand light years in diameter, and expanding with a radial velocity that, neglecting relativity, would be many times faster than the speed of light.” –Gabor Zovanyi  …Fact is, though, the percentage of increase now is much higher than one percent, but that’s because of an unsustainable and destructive fertilizer and monoculture regimen and won’t last. Soon the resource wars (energy, minerals, water) will ramp up and put the kibosh on that whole expanding faster than the speed of light deal, so it’s all good.

A new kind of vehicle. This should scale up to utility trucks and moving vans.

And a good, fun typing game. Yet I suggest it might be improved by having the words actually tell a story or tell jokes or something.
