New York City Truth - Part III - Consent
"...better than sitting in L.A. traffic," is the customary perception of a New Yorker, both foreign and domestic. The inflicted New York alternative is a cacophony of human misery, which speaks to the true character of the ordinary New Yorker who perceptively tolerates this...


...in addition to this...


...on a quince-plus-daily basis as a preferable alternative to a transit enveloped in your own personalized environment, the likes of which each New Yorker attempts to duplicate by reading, immersion in loud music and blankly staring at a stained and sticky floor.


Did You Know...the reason NYC is idealized as a city that never sleeps perhaps lays blame with such an abundance of auditory tumult that noise complaints are cataloged not by law enforcement but with an individual tax payer fed city department?

In Part IV, video game-esque disorder of foot traffic on a NYC side walk and exposing the truth of a New Yorker's utter disdain for civilization. A single block will scientifically define a culture.
The New York City Truth - Part II - Expend
Sustaining decay evidently comes at a cost. Despite being surrounded by filth, suffocated by density and immersed in irregularities, even the most mundane of impoverished costs of living are erratically higher the closer to the pith.

Below is a location and distance map of several McDonald's restaurants through out NYC as to represent a static business element. The items purchased at each location were (2) McDoubles with no cheese (a "Dollar Menu" item) and (1) small french fry.


Did You Know...the Metropolitan Transit Authority MTA (Subway)
...ranks 7th or less in the world (Virgin Vacations, CNN)
...is infested with rodents (Wikipedia)
...can lead to hearing loss (Wikipedia)
...can lead to breathing disorders (The Atlantic)
...is destructively over crowded (Gothamist)
...rivals third world countries in price hikes (NY Times)
...has New Yorkers on it (Huffington Post)

In Part III we will take you on a video tour of the MTA subway during the tri-daily event known as rush hour, the New York native supposed superior alternative to Los Angeles freeway traffic.
The New York City Truth - Part I - Blight
New York City is a rotting corpse.

Despite the mythic interpretation of this many metaphored domicile, New York City is in reality a fetid vessel of decay with a dash of perpetuation for inefficiency and dysphoria.

In this several part series, we will take you on an in depth tour to uncover an often veiled truth behind New York City.

Part I challenges the vision of this place as a mecca of strength, beauty and grandeur by demonstrating that it is in fact being held together by sticks and timber and would fall in upon it's self with any gap in time.

The map below is a continuously updated (for 7 days) atlas (commenced on 172/073 by TV Miller) of individually marked streets that contain an edifice eclipsed by an unsightly and typically several months permanent scaffold, more often than not used for restoration.


Did You Know...that if Consolidated Edison did not consistently depressurize steam from below the streets of Manhattan, there would the potential for a cataclysmic detonation?


Part II will demonstrate the irregularities of cost by locale the while the scaffolding map of Part I carries onward.

[Update] Tolerance exhausted and point proven. Part I suspended.
Why Not? No Turn Key Lock
Is your key ring littered with junk...I'm sorry, personal trinkets? When you consider the common key ring is a bundle of keys, cards and novelties, one might wonder why we are modernly burdened with turning this misshapen cacophony. Here's a thought...inverse the properties of the average door knob.

Inserting your key aligns the tumbler pins (inverted from standard) allowing the facing 1/4 apex surface of the knob to turn freely, unlocking the door. The rear 3/4 of the knob operates as usual, releasing the plunger from the door frame.



In a post TV/3D printer world (250+/- days?) this will be prototyped and pitched to door fixture manufacturers. #StayTuned

Rocket Launch Line of Sight
As space occupation becomes even more common place around the world, viewing a rocket launch has become far more accessible. One apparatus of this missing from the information expressway is how easily you can view a launch from any where by looking right over there.

As a solution, we have released a beta version of our Rocket Launch Line of Sight (LOS) page via the Orbital Clock.

Enter your viewing address and select the launch site (location via SpaceFlight Now Tracking) and discover your generalized landmarked line of sight towards the launch site as a point of reference.

HLT1AA Pay Load Sketch (1)
The HLT1AA pay load is a high altitude mechanical experiment precursor to HLT1A. Operational specifics will remain privy until prior to completed production and launch. Below is an initial sketch of the HLT1AA pay load.

HLT1 - Experiment Series - Scaled "Al Cowlings" Rocket (1)
The second stage of the HLT1 project is the first stage carrier rocket and is one of the more significant in the experiment series.

Ballistic coefficient models do not calculate for thrust pressure inefficiencies from displacement. As displayed in the aerodynamic pressure diagram, thrust efficiency is lost as density is compensated. The first experiment at managing this loss will employ a cowling to funnel displaced atmosphere to a channel around and possibly through the combustion chamber.

In addition to purposing the redirection of atmosphere towards the rear of the rocket, utilizing dimple aerodynamics which creates a turbulence buffer and lowers separation will draw down more stabilized low pressure along the y-axis of the craft.
