06:58:15 <Dave from B™> Why is it necessary to get new license plates every 5 years? Seems like a waste to me.
07:13:28 <KorbenC> Dave from B™, how else are they going to get you to pay back your stiumulus checks :P
07:22:11 <Dave from B™> Seems like a waste but I guess they have to keep prisoners busy
07:23:23 <JB> If you have a personalized plate do they still require you to get a new one?
07:28:01 <Dave from B™> I believe so
08:41:48 <CraigC> hey folks
08:45:35 <KorbenC> CraigC, hi
08:48:45 <CraigC> hey Cooper
08:52:07 <Dave from B™> Morning Craig
08:53:49 <CraigC> Dave from B™, hey dude
08:54:47 <KorbenC> 3.0 EQ NE of Norris
08:57:48 <Dave from B™> Is that camper ready to go? 100 days until Opening Day!
09:11:44 <LindaG> Morning, Norris looks interesting
09:12:20 <KorbenC> There was an EQ :D
09:12:27 <KorbenC> Welp, time to school, bye all.
09:17:10 <LindaG> KorbenC, :) looks like it
09:19:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Help stamp out license plates Dave. Go to prison.
09:20:26 <Dave from B™> hahaha
09:20:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We had a LOT of old plates and the paint faded and chipped so you couldn't read them so they make us get new ones but I think we are 8 years.
09:21:54 <Dave from B™> 5 seems a little short. I get something in the 7-12 year range
09:23:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I do agree. I think we can get the same number for a fee or a new one for a buck.
09:30:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> OK Dave, tell me what this license plate is used for: https://www.flickr.com/photos/158539681@N04/50806689673/in/dateposted-public/
09:36:38 <Dave from B™> Space Shuttle?:D
09:37:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Betty would know.
09:38:33 <Dave from B™> Tank
09:39:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It was used for US servicemen on privately owned vehicles in Germany.
09:41:50 <KorbenC> Expires 1974, haha.
09:42:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have one from 1932 Korben!
09:43:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> EQ spike was at Norris.
09:45:16 <LindaG> How will the Boat fair?
09:46:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like OF will still work.
09:46:24 <LindaG> OF
09:47:34 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, :) so far so good
09:48:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hopefully Aurum will still work.
09:48:50 <KorbenC> I think ti was BenV who mentioned the short term response to EQ's near SB, only reason anything would change i think would be if there was enough energy to effect the conduit.
09:49:39 <KorbenC> Mara's article reached pox news I see.
09:50:13 <KorbenC> https://www.foxnews.com/science/yellowstone-geyser-wont-predict-volcanic-big-one
09:50:21 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, someday we might see it again
09:50:37 <LindaG> lol pox news
09:50:44 <KorbenC> oops :P
09:51:03 <LindaG> Good for Mara
09:56:14 <Dave from B™> "Yellowstone Geysers are getting more active and nobody knows why". I hate that caption. Overall, that is a stupid comment
10:01:00 <Dave from B™> Typical media sensationalism
11:15:23 <Dave from B™> Everyone fall asleep?
11:22:03 <LindaG> I'm up!
11:22:08 <LindaG> OF
11:24:13 <KorbenC> Update just in from my friend who went to YNP last week and just got back.... I recruited him to get us bits of info, he wnt around OF and Norris area.
11:24:49 <KorbenC> Improbable was "splashing 4 or 5 feet every few minutes"
11:25:13 <KorbenC> Giantess had "a slight hissing noise around the edges, will bubbles in the center"
11:26:06 <KorbenC> Apparently, "Aurum was having boiling episodes and then 10 to 15 seconds of stable water in the bottom"
11:26:49 <KorbenC> Doublet was "Flopping at the edges" (I assume thumping) and it was "Putting out an impressive amount of water"
11:28:44 <KorbenC> And finally for OF, "The far one on the front of the hill" (He pointed out Cascade) "was invisible due to the steam but had a trickle of water flowing into the river."
11:29:12 <KorbenC> OK, that it, just wanted to share the updates here, glad to have some info on what it going on with some of the hill.
11:29:56 <KorbenC> I am pressuring him for pictures of Norris, but, a 5 minute stop is barely enough for the guide to say "this is norris"
11:30:09 <LindaG> KorbenC, :thumbsup::thumbsup:
11:30:25 <LindaG> Wonder what depression is up to
11:31:31 <KorbenC> Give me a minute, I will ask him.
11:33:04 <KorbenC> "Are you talking about the one with the big cone?" HAHA, I think I need to pull out the map again.
11:33:38 <💤💤💤> bubbles in Giantess' center is good, as is hissing. Now's actually roughly the earliest a new series could starts
11:33:52 <LindaG> KorbenC, >(
11:34:22 <KorbenC> Linda, "It bubbled, and then the crater drained, and the feature under the overhang started splashing."
11:34:39 <KorbenC> 💤💤💤, I am trying to get more information about it.
11:34:54 <LindaG> KorbenC, thx
11:35:03 <💤💤💤> feature under the overhang - back vent?
11:35:09 <KorbenC> He said something after that about the bubbles getting an inch or two high.
11:35:16 <KorbenC> 💤💤💤, no, MC
11:35:25 <💤💤💤> oh, I see
11:35:39 <LindaG> oh marmot cave miss that too
11:36:46 <KorbenC> 💤💤💤, "and then the bubbles got tall on the other side"
11:36:59 <KorbenC> I assume the side he is talking about is the side closest to OF
11:38:51 <KorbenC> As the conversation over Giantess continues, it sounds like he saw a very good boiling episode, like one that would get our heart pumping.
11:40:00 <LindaG> :)
11:40:09 <KorbenC> "The guide told us to watch very closely since water went under the boardwalk!"
11:41:21 <KorbenC> I wish he got video of this.
11:41:51 <💤💤💤> ah, sounds like a strong north rim boil
11:42:35 <KorbenC> Sounds like Infant was bubbling too.
11:42:49 <💤💤💤> SE also possible, but I recall that side drains directly to the Firehole under normal circumstances
11:44:10 <KorbenC> Agreed JO?
11:44:12 <KorbenC> :)
11:45:45 <KorbenC> Wish it would have erupted for him, he has had some bad geyser luck in the past.
11:48:49 <KorbenC> Time to get back to math, enjoy thinking about G.
11:49:50 <LindaG> KorbenC, enjoy
12:13:26 <Dave from B™> Time to go get me ears lowered. Be back later
12:14:44 <💤💤💤> cya Dave
12:16:03 <LindaG> ummm they just removed pence from chamber, protestors breached the capitol steps
12:59:56 <kc (working)> OF
13:12:28 <JarnoO> looks like boaty attempted to go around noon-ish on the 28th
13:14:17 <KorbenC> What is wrong in the minds of the Trump supporters, breaking into the capitol and trying to get into the house chamber? I mean, c'mon. :P
13:14:31 <Dave from B™> I hope POTUS ends up in prison
13:14:47 <JarnoO> well, that's post-truth for you, Korben
13:14:51 <KorbenC> At least YNM is back :)
13:14:58 <KorbenC> JarnoO, ?
13:15:13 <JarnoO> post-truth society, to be clear
13:15:35 <KorbenC> Ah, now I understand.
13:16:28 <KorbenC> Correction: and breaching the chambers, not trying too.
13:19:27 <JarnoO> also, boaty confirmed on January 2
13:19:33 <JarnoO> by logger data, that is
13:20:51 <KorbenC> yup
13:21:05 <KorbenC> does not look like it really wanted to erupt them, barely a spike, if anything.
13:22:35 <JarnoO> am kinda puzzled by the data, actually. Temperature dropped fairly quickly after ±1353, but the eruption time is set @ 1700. That coincides with temperature raise @ ±1709
13:23:00 <JarnoO> I don't normally associate an eruption with a raise after a drop
13:25:24 <KorbenC> That is interesting.
13:25:31 <Dave from B™> Can't ice buildup effect loggers this time of year?
13:26:00 <KorbenC> Could be that it was calming down and then did one of those "OK I am done, kidding, boom" :P
13:26:23 <JarnoO> yes, but minors quickly melt away any ice on the probe
13:27:21 <KorbenC> and majors get rid of everything
13:28:08 <JarnoO> temperature trace suggest duration of 1h06m
13:28:18 <JarnoO> suggests*
14:22:58 <JarnoO> Georgia turned completely blue
14:23:25 <JarnoO> (well, electoral and senate)
14:42:01 <JarnoO> looks like power failed at Norris again
15:20:01 <Dave from B™> Time to head home. Have a good evening everyone.
15:20:53 <JarnoO> cya Dave
15:31:14 <Betty> afternoon all, evening Jarno
15:36:34 <JarnoO> evening Betty
16:11:08 <GO USA> and by that i mean ...... stop the coup
16:11:48 <JarnoO> afternoon Graham. Bumpy ride today to say the least
16:13:15 <GO USA> i wasging to go an riot ... but theres a curfew now
16:21:02 <GO USA> curfew in Alexandria and Arlington VA .. hope nobody has a flight out of National airport
16:24:16 <JarnoO> curfew on a plane would be interesting
16:25:55 <GO USA> it will be a "soft curfew" with the peaceful folks allowed to go home but the violent and destructive ones may be arrested
16:29:10 <GO USA> pretty bad day for the Republican party, losing their majority n the Senate too with 2 seats flipped to the Democrats
16:31:09 <KorbenC> I do not like the democrats having all 3, but, it is what the people want, so I have no problem with it, it is jsut my opinion one conficting party will help checks and balances.
16:32:23 <KorbenC> At least people are leaving capitol hill, what happened today was probably the biggest breach of our democratic processes I hvae seen in my life
16:34:38 <JarnoO> *spectates from a country which has had coalition governments virtually always since the current form of government was introduced*
16:34:41 <GO USA> yeah, divided government has some value but the margins are small so it will be limited what can be accomplished.
16:35:14 <KorbenC> GO USA, exactly
16:35:23 <KorbenC> JarnoO, lol
16:36:03 <KorbenC> If it was 80 dems, 20 reps, or 80 reps and 20 dems it would be hard to get something approved from the other side, but with pretty much even, it makes it easy to get both sides view voted on.
16:36:19 <GO USA> but they will be able to bring bills to the Senate for a vote and confirm appointees of supreme court justices
16:36:48 <KorbenC> Unless Trump schedules a weekly riot, haha.
16:37:56 <GO USA> i think he will go on vaca to play golf in Florida - interesting theres a flight to Scotland planned - would be odd to go play there in winter
16:38:31 <JarnoO> well, Scotland is just all wind and rain in winter, not that often snow
16:38:38 <GO USA> Biden should deny him Marine and AF 747 exit from DC
16:38:57 <KorbenC> Flight banning Trump would make it interesting.
16:39:24 <GO USA> i hear scotland said he would be arrested due to COVID restrictions
16:39:42 <GO USA> he would still win the golf game ... because he always wins
16:39:53 <KorbenC> I do have a law question, if articles of impeachment are drawn up today for example, can they vote on impeaching him after he leaves office, like could they vote and "remove him from office" in July?
16:40:04 <JarnoO> else he throws a tantrum
16:40:45 <KorbenC> Trump's tantrums have become my daily laugh, lol.
16:41:14 <JarnoO> haha, he's done well ridiculizing himself and the US here
16:41:50 <KorbenC> lol. We deserve the rest of the world laughing at our orange of a leader.
16:43:18 <KorbenC> Graham, do you live within DC or no?
16:45:46 <GO USA> I live in VA, 11 miles from the capitol
16:46:34 <GO USA> i do not think they will bother impeaching him, its just 2 weeks to go and they need to work on Covid and other measures
16:56:21 <GO USA> so we got a burp out or YNM?
16:57:48 <JarnoO> yes, but most importantly out of the YVO loggers
17:09:22 <GO USA> Twitter has locked Trumps account ... haha
17:12:43 <JarnoO> way too late
17:14:04 <JarnoO> though I guess better late than never. Shame it had to take an occupied Capitol
17:15:22 <GO USA> its only suspended for 12h tho
17:15:40 <GO USA> i think it was suspended once before?
17:15:58 <GO USA> but Twitter makes money off him too, so they have a conflict of interest
17:16:24 <JarnoO> don't know about earlier suspension, Graham, but wouldn't surprise me
17:20:31 <KorbenC> JarnoO, twitter does not like to ban current world leaders. Just saying.
17:23:26 <JarnoO> Korben, usually a good thing. This is of course that one exception
17:23:44 <KorbenC> Agreed
17:24:06 <KorbenC> I wish Trump's advisors had a big red button with the word "MUTE" on it. :P
17:49:54 <JarnoO> well, then you'd get "My red button is larger than yours"-speak
18:29:06 <JarnoO> oh well. Enjoy YNM whitelining again
18:31:02 <KorbenC> JarnoO, bye
