"It is a principle incorporated into the settled policy of America, that as peace is better than war, war is better than tribute."

But new research suggests that Bohr didn't have it exactly right. In a study published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, scientists suggest that people do move faster when they are reacting to what is happening around them–but not fast enough for a heroic gunslinger to save his own life.
Researchers set up an experimental (and bullet-less) duel to study two types of movement, and found that "unplanned actions" were faster than "planned actions." Pairs of participants were put in a button-pressing competition with each other…. "There was no 'go' signal," said Dr Andrew Welchman from the University of Birmingham, who led the research. "All they had to go by was either their own intention to move or a reaction to their opponent – just like in the gunslingers legend" [BBC]. Welchman found that the subjects who started the sequence of button-pressing first didn't move as quickly as their partners who were reacting to the action. Those reactive participants pressed their buttons 21 milliseconds faster.
Welchman observed: "If you're making a cup of tea that would be an intentional decision. If we then knock the cup of tea off the table, the reactive comes into play as we try to catch the cup as fast as possible" [BBC].
But the button-pressing duel also revealed that the reactive party was critically delayed. A "reaction time" of 200 milliseconds elapsed between the moment the first player hit a button and when the second player began to move, which meant that the reactive player never won the duel. Welchman notes that the same reaction time would slow down a cowboy, so in a gunfight, the 21 millisecond reactionary advantage would be unlikely to save you [BBC].
The researchers plan to investigate whether there are two different brain processes for "planned actions" and "reactive actions." They hope future findings will help patients suffering from Parkinson's disease, who have greater trouble with intentional movements like picking up a ball on the table, as opposed to catching it when thrown at them. This might be evidence that particular areas of the brain affected by Parkinson's contribute more to intentional actions than reactive ones. If this turns out to be the case, then it may also be possible to develop some strategies to ease movement in such patients [University of Birmingham].

|"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence … From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good." -- George Washington|

|It has been suggested that o'who?, the clown, and 'those who surround him' are not the bumbling fools they appear to be. Nor are they one of the 'Three Stooges' but rather are shrewd implementation/drivers and fellow-travelers of policies designed to disarm the citizenry & collapse the American economy. Why? o'nocchio's grandiose scheme to "fundamentally transform America" is more than simple campaign rhetoric as can be seen by his use of "enabling acts" to circumvent the Constitution of the United States. As Ollie used to say, "Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into."|
"You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the great struggle for independence." -- Charles Austin Beard (1874-1948)

The Federalist Papers
Maintained by "Silent Calvin"
"As a nation we have been asleep for years. Lulled by affluence and self-indulgent apathy, our collective awareness has grown dim. This has created an opening for our enemies, one that may ultimately prove fatal. This is the truth and what we do, or don't do, will determine the consequences, for better or worse. It is time to decide." -- truthandcons.blogspot.com
