Conspiracy Con 2012 in Santa Clara California on June 2nd & 3rd.  I have been at this event for several years and usually meet many interested Americans. Come by the table if you are fed up with the IRS. I do carry many books on IRS and Constitutional Issues. You do not need a ticket to be in the exhibit area and meet with me if you like.
If you are in the area or know someone in the area please let them know about the meeting. Should be a large event with many speakers. Plan on attending. I hope to see you there.
I want this year to be one that the IRS wishes never happened. The heat needs to be turned up to stop this abusive agency!

June 6 2012 Transits of Venus
Transits of Venus across the disk of the Sun are among the rarest of planetary alignments. Indeed, only six such events have occurred since the invention of the telescope (1631, 1639, 1761, 1769, 1874 and 1882). The next transit of Venus will occur on 2012 June 06.
The principal events occurring during a transit are characterized by contacts. The event begins with contact ...I which is the instant when the planet's disk is externally tangent with the Sun. The entire disk of the Venus is first seen at contact II when the planet is internally tangent with the Sun. During the next several hours, Venus gradually traverses the solar disk at a relative angular rate of approximately 4 arc-min/hr. At contact III, the planet reaches the opposite limb and is once again internally tangent with the Sun. The transit ends at contact IV when the planet's limb is externally tangent to the Sun. Contacts I and II define the phase called ingress while contacts III and IV are known as egress. Greatest transit is the instant of minimum angular separation between Venus and the Sun as seen from Earth's geocenter...

July 2012

4th of JULY 10,000 or 20,000 people will be at PIER 39 / Fishermans' Wharf / Embarcadero making this the 3rd? largest free party in SF?
I estimate Bay to Breakers in May is 50,000 people. PRIDE is 10,000 people? 
Michael Franti / Spearhead / Power to the Peacefull 2nd Saturday in September is ? 10,000
Get to wharf early to avoid traffic.
One way to count people: look at a map the USA = 50 people. Look at a crowd. How many 50s do you see?
Another way to count people: Look at a 10 x 10 display of items. That is 100. How many 100s do you see in crowd?

)'( Last year BM Tix on Craiglist started out HIGH and ended up going at face value before the event
RELAX. You are safe enough to ASSUME you are going. Plenty folk asked for more tix than they needed to cover their friends / family / camps.
You might post a Tix ad in the WANTED section of CL with fun creative text of who you are, once a week if you are bored, or try different text each time.
also List trades or OFFERS of what you will exchange in the SIGNATURE of your EMAIL
speaking of TRADES take a look at
perhaps you can ask for what you want; perhaps stop saying oh I'm fine each time a friend or stranger asks how you are doing. Instead answer that you seek a BM ticket then repeat your offers or trades. Let your friends be your angels and matchmakers. :)

Note if you offered BM $390 your ran in all 3 races. If $320 then 2 races. if $240 then only 1 race hence the % spread...

Possible interpretation of BM ticketing process (spreadsheet)
Realizing that the BM ticketing process results are a bit of a conundrum, I had a rough and ready shot at building a spreadsheet (with a glass of wine, you understand) to try to gauge the probabilities of winning tickets. With a few basic assumptions (and assuming the process worked in the same way as advertized), a few rather interesting results emerge whch seem to be about we are seeing. Of course, it would have been more predictive to do this before we had some results so I couldn't fix the assumptions (accidentally or inadvertently), but oh well!
Rough probabilities of winning a ticket at all seem to be:
If you bid $240, 14%
If you bid $320, 41%
If you bid $390, 95%
I could be quite wrong, of course. There do seem to be some results on our yahoogroups and on our facebook page "SiliconVillageBurners" that seem to correlate with this a little bit. You be the judge. More results, the spreadsheet and an explanation can be found at our new webpage Hope useful.
