Thank Dog it's FRYday.  Just a recap of what I say all the time; I post what I hear on the scanner so don't tell me not to post certain things like "naked male in a dumpster" ‘cause I heard it on the scanner and that is what I do, post things I hear on the scanner. It's not my fault I heard naked male exercising in the park across from Our Lady of Sorrows 20 minutes later. It happens. There are all kinds of people in the world; some wear clothes, some don't. Just be happy that I, Roger Dodger wear clothes.

Subscriber, Laughing brought up an interesting point about government grants and federal monies that are supposed to be set aside for people who suffer from mental illness disappearing. Not that it has anything to do with naked folks. Some are saner than the rest of us, they just live in a different world. We should all try it, it would be funny. There would be nothing to hide if we were all naked. Gee, where did that federal money go anyway?  Who's driving a new vehicle, going on vacations? Golf anyone? There is corruption everywhere, always has been, always will be. That doesn't mean we have to accept it and we don't. The proof is all over our streets; sleeping, shitting, and eating out of garbage cans.

Wow it just happens to be an election year too. I always discount those in one position striving for an advance, unless of course their current record shows they did things toward improving the city, state, or country without favoring their own 401K. Unfortunately, there are not many of those. In our case, we’re going to be looking for a new mayor soon. It's best to just vote for whomever we think would represent the city best.

Scanner Reports, Thursday:

Today, Thursday, is Shakey’s birthday. He is 61. He helps me out when I need it, programing my scanner, because I don't have the patience for that sort of thing. I have never known a more hard-working person in my life than Shakey. He goes to work every day with a smile on his face no matter what. He spent eight years in the Marines at the tail end of Vietnam as a Military Police Officer. Thank you for your service, good buddy. He barely survives paying rent and bills, fixing his cars. Even though he has tremors, he does all the work himself, no matter how long it takes. He'd give anyone his last buck or the shirt off his back. He walks the talk and always has. Many people know him as Kenny, the manager of Texaco that used to be at Cacique and Milpas. He is no longer there; he works at Chevron now, in Carpinteria. If you know him, please wish him a Happy Birthday, and thank him for his service.

Today there was also an open mike on the Santa Barbara City Police channel and, clear as a bell, I heard Mary 3 say: "Tell my wife I love her". I thought that is very sweet. I hope he doesn't give me a ticket for posting it. Oh yea, I don't have a car, lol.

Welfare check - Transient in bushes? Are the bushes ok? Or maybe it was a threesome?

Roger, speaking of the government. There's going to be a __nationwide__ emergency alert test by FEMA next Wednesday, September 27, 11:20a.m. Pacific Time (PT). Not that it matters (I hope) but from North Korea to Los Angeles, it could take a rocket about 38 minutes to travel 5,930 miles. Roger, do you know if anyone in our local S.B. County government is doing anything to help prep us "just in case". We are downwind of Vandenberg.

Personally I hope that rocket goes up my rear and explodes then I won't have to hear, read, or see anymore of Trump or his North Koran Twin playing "Top the bomb threat" Anymore With all the crap in my system it will eat the rocket and I may have a mild case of fart burn...Do we still have Fema? or did Donald lay them off to pay for another Golf expedition? I thought they were gone....What cracks me up is that the Repubes really don't care about California they are all for Nuking us I guess even nuking their fellow Republicans who voted republican because I know not everyone in California voted for that lady who wrote that international beast seller, "What Happened?" America has become a Reality Show for the rest of the world to laugh at.......No I know nothing about the Emergency test Why would it matter? We will all be turned into a bunch of American Fries anyway and Donald will go golfing.

Roger, with all due respect I don't see how you can be so quick to criticize when you by your own admission refused to vote this past election time.

Nuclear Scientist told me how to calculate radiation arrival time, if downwind, like we are from a nuclear power plant, and there's an explosion at the plant. Take the distance from the nuclear power plant, and divide that by the typical wind speed from that direction. Example: nuclear power plant is 40 miles away and wind speed is 8 mph, then the time for windborne radiation to reach you is 40/8 = 5 hours. Or if you are 5 miles from a plant, and the wind is 15 mph, that is 5/15 = 20 minutes.

Does our S.B. County Fire Department have any (or enough?) radiation measuring devices?

What if it is nuclear? Evacuation is the #1 plan for a radiation incident. When using the method "Shelter in Place" for radiation, it's for two reasons. (1) The use of the house does give you some protection from radiation. The three main types of radiation include alpha, beta, and gamma. A house would protect you from both alpha and beta radiation. (2) Another protection the house would give you would be from radioactive fallout. This material that is falling from the air would contaminate anything it touches. If you are in the house, that would prevent you from being contaminated. Cover skin, long sleeves, etc.
Does our County have enough Potassium Iodide for families who might want it?

Has anyone other than me become concerned about the fact that a major component of our missile defense system is an hour away at Vandenberg AFB? The whole shooting a bullet with a bullet idea has not tested perfect yet and seems like it would be a prime target for a 1st strike. Should I be stocking up on radiation suits or what?

Good info from our government,

"Time - fallout radiation loses its intensity fairly rapidly. Radioactive fallout poses the greatest threat to people during the first two weeks, by which time it has declined to about 1 percent of its initial radiation level."

"Nuclear Blast, in General, Potential Targets Include:”
Strategic missile sites and military bases.
Centers of government such as Washington, DC, and state capitals.
Important transportation and communication centers.
Manufacturing, industrial, technology, and financial centers.
Petroleum refineries, electrical power plants, and chemical plants.
Major ports and airfields.

Starts w/Long Beach /Port.

"Ventura, unusually, has prepared a 250-page plan in the event of nuclear attack, which it updates regularly, along with a public information campaign"

Diablo Nuclear Power Plant is in Avila Beach, near San Luis Obispo, about 95 miles from Santa Barbara. The owner is PG&E. The cooling source is the Pacific Ocean. Vandenberg Air Force Base is in Vandenberg and is 9 miles northwest of Lompoc, and about 63 miles from Santa Barbara. "Vandenberg AFB will serve as one of two Pacific bases to defend against possible North Korean or Iranian missile threats. The program will have interceptor missiles that will launch to take down intermediate-range ballistic missiles that pose a threat to the United States."

Could have sworn I posted this about effects...
The link below shows the probable effect of a likely 150Kt North Korean fission/fusion bomb (guess at the 2017 test) fused for a surface detonation approximately at Vandenberg, with a worst-case (but not unlikely) wind direction for Santa Barbara.

Surface detonation minimizes blast and flash damage (note how none of the really serious blast/flash radii even reaches Lompoc).

But a surface burst maximizes the fallout plume. Despite that, the dosage in your area appears to be around 10mSv / hour. This would give you 2 - 4 days to get out of plume without risking major health effects, more if you spent the remaining days in the area indoors with the windows and doors closed before entering your closed car and proceeding out of the area.

If this happened at night, you probably wouldn't know it until you heard a fairly loud bang, not even as loud as those sonic booms the Shuttle made back in the 1980s landing at Edwards. If you then ran outside, due to the time delay of the shock wave reaching you, you'd see the fireball as an ember shrinking away over the mountains to the northwest. It's about 60 miles, so even with a stiff 25 mph continuous wind from the NW, the fallout would take 2 hours to reach you.

Here is an alternative scenario. A much larger bomb, 350kT, but detonated at the ideal height to maximize blast and flash effects at the site.

Note there is no appreciable fallout plume. This is correct. Here, the flash over the horizon to the NW would be shockingly bright, but without a direct view of the fireball, you'd have time to look away without being blinded. The bank would be really loud. And that would be it.
