Sand Box

“South Park” disclaimer

This is a test of creation fnord of a post by a user signed up as a contributor. In the conclusion of the author’s Honor Bound Honor Born (May 2014), an explorer on the Moon discovers something that just shouldn’t be there, which calls into question the history of the Earth and Moon and humanity’s fnord place in it. This short novel (or novella—it’s 81 pages in a print edition) explores how that anomaly came to be and presents a brilliantly sketched alternative history which reminds the reader just how little we really know about the vast expanses of time which preceded our own species’ appearance on the cosmic stage.

This was the second post on Ratburger.org.   On 2017-12-23, I re-purposed it to be a sand box for testing things related to posting and commenting on posts.  By using an old post, I avoid having it pop to the top of the page.  I  also made it private so only logged-in users may see it.

Green text in raw.

And some red text.

This is a blockquote with some italic text within it.

And now I will include a multi-paragraph block quote.

Well, first of all, I don’t believe I ever spoke out against it. I said this, it was just from—since I have never made a deep study of this thing, because what was the use—from my viewpoint, I said I thought on balance it was an unwise amendment. However, there were so many people whose fears are very real that somebody who would get a hold of the kind of military force we now have, get a hold of it and use it as an instrument of establishment of centralized or dictatorship form of government, I would think that—I could argue pretty well on either side of this one.

Now, let me point this out. Our whole history, from 1900—from the beginning, from 1787 until 1953, has been one of almost defenselessness in military forces. … Now, even after World War II, we found this same trend had started in, and it started, not as just a matter of congressional economy or of the executive’s economy, it’s what America felt. We hoped that the United Nations were going to solve our problems, so that this policy, this political policy that you ask about, I think has been sort of a concomitant with our military policy, because everybody knew there wasn’t enough military, really, to go into control of the country. Now, this is no longer true, and it might alter thinking. The answer to your last question is no.

— Dwight D. Eisenhower

  1. I try to import the picture directly in the OP but couldn’t. I was able to import by change it from actual size to large but turned it sideways.

  2. 10 Cents:
    I try to import the picture directly in the OP but couldn’t. I was able to import by change it from actual size to large but turned it sideways.

    I am not sure what this means.  When you imported the picture, did you specify “actual size”, or did you scale it as before.

    I also don’t know what “I try to import the picture directly in the OP but couldn’t” means.  Did the import fail?  If so, with what error message?

    Please try importing the picture from your phone at actual size in a comment on this post.  If it comes in sideways, I will re-enable the plug-in and then we can try it again and see what happens.

  3. I see three timeouts in the error_log:

    The IP is from a SOFTBANK mobile ISP, so I assume this is your phone.  It looks like uploading the full image takes longer than the timeout.  So we’ll have to proceed to the next phase of testing the smaller image with the plug-in enabled.

    I have just enabled the plug-in.  Please try re-uploading the scaled image to a comment on this post using exactly the setting you did when you uploaded it to the original post yesterday.
