Overnight Open Thread

Tis the eve before the Super Bowl. I'm rootin' for the G-Men for a couple of reasons. Mostly because my wife is a big time Giants fan but also because I really, really want to see the video that Paul 'Fitzy' Fitzgerald would put up on his site Townie News after losing to the Giants again. The video Fitzy's We Blew Super Bowl 42 was funny as hell and I so want some more of that. Kinda like how Cartman wanted Scott Tenorman's tears of sadness.

Fitzy's Super Bowl 46 pre-game video below the fold.

This is supposed to be a Face Slimmer. Seriously. I think it's really designed for those that just gotta have that lovedoll look.

Electronic Dating

Well if you are into electronic dating, the shiite just got real. Somewhat. Would You Kiss Someone Via Robot Messenger? This is some freaky deaky stuff man. I'm sure it won't be long until Roxxxy gets hooked up to this and then you can really get your freak on.

Artificial intelligence researcher Hooman Samani has developed the kiss messenger, or Kissenger, to add a new dimension to those wistful Skype-dates with someone far away.

"The basic concept is that you have two robots, both outfitted with an artificial pair of lips," explained Sebastian Anthony of ExtremeTech.

"The lips are highly touch-sensitive, but can also be manipulated by motors inside the robot."

To seal the deal, the partners must take out their Kissengers - small, pig-like robots with floppy ears and googly-eyes - and, well, lock lips with them.

The robots are equipped with soft silicon pads that transmit lip movements between partners.

Nature Stuff

Think you got it bad in your significant relationship? Not as bad as some males in the arachnid and insect families. Sexual cannibalism seems to run rampant out there in Mother Nature's backyard but one spider has come up with a plan to survive his mating encounter. Here is the Spider That Chops Off His Penis To Save His Head.

Star Wars

This just in. George Lucas still sucks. Especially if this rumor is true in regard to the upcoming live-action Star Wars TV show. Star Wars: Underworld Plot Spoiler. It sounds like a blatant rip-off of what J.J. Abrams pulled off with the Star Trek reboot. If one wanted to go in a different direction, I liked what Dark Horse did with Star Wars: Infinities.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... The events and players are very familiar but something isn't quite right. Luke Skywalker valiantly attacks the Death Star, fires his torpedoes -- and they miss their mark! Welcome to a Star Wars you never imagined, a Star Wars shattered, a Star Wars where the possibilities are ENDLESS!

Anyone else?

This stuff is funny. I mean, age is number, and that's about it. The guy is an athlete, so you have to figure he is probably healthier than the average.
My dad is 82, and he took up mountain running about 10 years ago on a dare from one of his fishing buddies. He now holds the age record for Mt. Marathon, and probably some other races too, but he's just happy that he can finally win something since he was always a slow runner. Waiting for the competition to die has its advantages....

33 The Star Wars Infinities series did sound interesting to me. I don't remember what they did for Return of the Jedi, but I know that for A New Hope, Luke misses the shot, Leia is captured and trained as a Sith. And for Empire Strikes Back, Luke does not survive his injuries on Hoth so Leia is the one that ends up getting trained by Yoda.

As for that Underworld plot. Dumb as fuck and I do not like the idea of time travel or even teleporting in Star Wars. They've tried sticking a few things of this here and there in the Expanded Universe novels and it just always seems out of place. I always thought the better route they could have gone would be with a rebel fighter squadron, perhaps even just adapting the Rogue Squadron stories.

*"Newts campaign is deep in debt. He is almost a million in debt. so if anyone here is for him, throw him a couple bucks."*

So he can continue his folly and waste even more money? I don't get this thinking. And I'm sure that's why he's changed his "strategy" to a more positive message, it's all about Newt's future earnings and exposure, not winning an election.

If I thought Newt was actually a conservative, I would go down with that sinking ship. I don't think he's a conservative.



I believe Romney has this in the bag and having a protracted fight
doesn't help anyone. It's best to accept the inevitable and look
forward to the fight for November.



It's sad, but I think it's reality. I was all in for Perry. I tried to
give every other Not-Romney a try, but they all suck.

I've moved onto the acceptance stage. I will focus on down ticket races right now, but beating Obama is still my number 1 goal.

Posted by: Ben at February 04, 2012 10:18 PM (UvdzB)

105 Okay, here's the deal. If you aren't in the same room, you shouldn't be kissing at all. The point being that absence makes the heart grow fonder, or at least hornier. Remote kissing is probably the most disgusting idea I've heard in a while, and I have heard some of the spew from Ron Paul, so that's heady company.


What in hell does kissing a pig-machine do for you, exactly? If it's a turn on, I would worry about your relationship, seriously.

It's a living hell but will live up to my end of the bargain., She is 17 going on 18 and gently reminded him of that tonight and shit hit the fan.

Yeah. I think we're seeing the real Newt. A bitter, careless and extremely self-centered man.

It's part of the reason I wrote him off last August and wouldn't get on his bandwagon after Perry dropped out.

Not only are we trying to beat Obama, but our candidate will actually have to be President if we win. I don't think Newt is capable. He didn't do particularly well as Speaker of the House. It's very telling that almost no one from his time as Speaker has endorsed him.

This doesn't mean I like Romney, I don't. At all. It's just that I dislike Gingrich even more. We're in a real shitty place right now, but what can you do?

We need to make sure the Senate and House are as conservative as possible and pressure Mitt to name a conservative VP like Rubio(or whoever you prefer)

I completely understand people hating Romney. He sucks and I don't trust him as far as I can throw him. I get a kick out of this idea, though, that Gingrich hasn't also gone very far off the reservation. Yes, he's not as much of a panderer as Romney, but that's really not saying much. I'm perfectly to admit that my guy sucks (I'll even admit he sucks more than Gingrich). Just admit that your guy does too.

Anyway, sounds like your ex has really done a number on your self-esteem - and not in a lame ass kids need self esteem way - you said ego bashed you into sticking around for the kids, now sounds like trying to guilt trip you into sticking around for him. You got divorced for a reason. At 42 you have many good years left.

Not bad but you'll need some gratuitous insults hurled at anyone who's suggesting that Mitt is going to be the nominee.

The more poisonous the better. And be sure to make it personal, none of this "hey, we're on the same side here," shit.

And last but not least, you'll need some over the top declaration to really seal it. Something like ,"I will not vote for Mitt Romney even if Obama rapes my dog and orders the death of my children."

Not really qualified to comment on this situation, but it seems to me that you have paid in full whatever dues can possibly be considered your responsibility. HS graduation or 18 years old both seem like good tangible, but benign, passage markers. Pick one, stick to it, move on, and God Bless.

I think overexposure generally is a big problem.
It seems like every time one of the candidates makes a tiny mistake or says something only slightly controversial it is quickly available for the public to over-analyze. These candidates are definitely flawed but the analysts love to ignore the fact that they are also human beings who are going to make mistakes that have no bearing on whether they are good candidates.

183 I completely understand people hating Romney. He sucks and I don't trust him as far as I can throw him. I get a kick out of this idea, though, that Gingrich hasn't also gone very far off the reservation. Yes, he's not as much of a panderer as Romney, but that's really not saying much. I'm perfectly to admit that my guy sucks (I'll even admit he sucks more than Gingrich). Just admit that your guy does too.

187 As I've said before, the string of initial primaries don't exactly wind through the heart of Republican country (Nevada, NH?) and so far no candidate has won a majority of the votes cast. One might interpret that as saying, at this point, most Republicans have voted "against" Romney.

So why is he so much the favored one?

In 08, the Rs offered up a lite version of Obama and the great "independent" middle said, "Why vote for the faux liberal when we can go for the real thing?", or something like that. How will Romney be different?

Strangely, in 08 I leaned toward Romney over McCain, in retrospect because I knew a lot about McCain and Romney seemed to be more business oriented.

You got divorced for a reason. At 42 you have many good years left. UNLESS - you really do actually love your ex and the divorce was a mistake that can be forgiven and overcome.

If you're right and we are going off a cliff, then I would like to go off it with Romney over Obama.

237 Okay, here's some weirdness. Earlier today was refreshing the disaster prep stuff for the house and thinking about how my circumstances would work out. My wife and I each have two kids from prior marriages. Chances are when SMOD or some other disaster comes, we won't all be together. That will be tough. But then I was thinking, what if somehow we are at a transition with one ex or the other - or, more likely, because we have prepared and our asshole exes probably haven't - having either one or both ask us to take the kids on the bugout - and then asking to go along themselves, because of the kids.

I mean, we'd pretty much have to. But let's just say that we do not get along with our exes. At all. I can just imagine all of us together in the same car in a big ass traffic jam trying to get out of the DC area.

I don't think even the end of the world would make my ex start acting like a reasonable human being.

Like Professor Reynolds says, 21st century relationships. I am conditionally for SMOD, now, based on timing.

Romney is arguably the worst Republican we could have selected as a party...and here we are...almost.[i/]

The worst Republican we could have selected as a party would have been one who would lose to Obama. Throwing Obama out of the office he's co-opted for the Socialist Revolution, or whatever the hell he thinks he's doing, is the first priority. Romney cannot conceive of a judge as bad as those Obama has nominated, and would nominate.

And let's not forget Laup Nor, when throwing around generalizations.

For one reason there has only been 7,000 votes counted. Clark county (the largest county) hasn't reported yet and John Ralston says precints have reported Romney getting over 55%.

Also if you add Santorum and Ginrich together in whats been reported they are still 10% behind Romney.

You are reading in a meaning I did not intend. I meant genuinely electable, and I made no case that Romney is that. I admit frankly that I have very little ability to judge "electability," except that I know Ron Paul does not have it, nor does Snooki. Certainly the media's judgment about that is no guide; it's more of a "what not to do." I completely agree about 1996 and 2008, but I don't remember anyone making a serious case for Ford's electability in 1976 on anything other than in incumbency basis. That said, I have always had a fondness for the guy, on account of the number of bills he vetoed. I'd love to see more of that from any President.

Yeah, it's petition time in Pennsylvania and as far as I know Newt doesn't have anyone circulating his petitions. I live in the second largest county in the state and our committee HQ doesn't have pre-filled out petitions for him. Every other candidate had something to hand out the day petitions could be signed. Not Newt.

He has no money, no infrastructure, and no one on the ground. The debates are the only thing keeping him in the race. Unfortunately there are only 3-4 more debates left.

That still holds true, don't you think? Most people forget, or don't know, that in 2000-2001, McCain was planning on switching parties. He was so pissed about the 2000 primaries against Bush that he was going to leave. Then 9/11 happened.

McCain is easily my least favorite Republican and I pulled the lever for him in 2008.

Again, he said no such thing. He said certain precincts haven't been counted yet and that he PREDICTED that he would increase his lead. He didnt say he spoke to anyone.

340 pi[Did we as a party make the right choice when we picked the "electable, moderate" in 1976? How about 1996? Or 2008 for that matter?

Posted by: 18-1 at February 04, 2012 11:05 PM (3aXbg)


In 1976, potentially. I've only been able to find one poll so far that compared them both-a Harris poll at the end of the primaries had Reagan losing to Carter by 19 points and Ford losing to Carter only by 4, which was pretty close to what actually happened. Carter was not yet considered a SCOMF. He was actually regarded as super-competent in office initially. Honestly, it happened. However, that's only one poll and the polling on Carter vs. Ford varied widely over the year, so, none of that's clear.

For 1996, Gerald Ford and Mitt Romney make Bob Dole look like Barry Goldwater circa 1964. He does not deserve to be placed in this category. However, say we toss him in here-who would we have picked instead? Colin Powell? Pete Wilson? The only legitimately conservative candidates didn't come close to winning. The others were exemplary RINOs.

For 2008, I'm going to commit heresy here, but, yeah. We made the right move. McCain lost, but he got as close as anybody was going to get considering the economy and Bush's approval rating. Nobody else stood a prayer.

It's like this kemosabes:
Judges
Spending
Rogue states and cohorts

Judges - anyone here thing Rom-Rom is going to nominate worse judges?

Spending - Aside from the MASSCare debacle which relied heavily on Federal money, he really didn't increase spending. The GOP weathervane is clearly pointed in one direction and one direction only here; cut spending.

Rogue states - I think that many here are not too kean on the World Police thing that Bush thought would work out. GBless him and his democritization project but it's not the kind of thing most voters are willing to support nor was it the kind of thing the Founders envisioned for the country. Romney hasn't really given notice one way or another but the current mood of the country is for less external operations and greater focus on our economy, a problem that is actually diminishing our status internationally.

Obama had a cult of personality. If he had a "compelling personal story," I never heard it. Growing up in Indonesia and Hawaii, smoking weed, doing coke, no discernible hard work to speak of, rabble rouser ("community organizer"). What was so compelling, exactly?

The only compelling personal story he had was concocted by Bill Ayers, and it was admired for another man's writing talent, not for the story it told.

The whole "grew up in a broken home" bit.

Ah. Yeah, OK. So did Clinton, right? But Clinton governed a state. OK, it was Arkansas, but still. Does every child of a single mother have a "compelling personal story" to be President? Does it help or hurt if the absent father is a Commie?

I'm still going with the "cult of personality" hypothesis. "We are the ones we have been waiting for." Let's all chant "Yes we can." It got the lefties energized, and the Independents went along for the ride, because the economy was collapsing.

I think we're not so badly off this time.

You know I think almost every candidate is considerate of their families feelings. Its almost a standard sentence in their announcement speech "After discussing with my wife and family...." But its not something that comes out before then, which happened with the stories about his wife not wanting him to run. And with the previous situation that just comes off as really weakening to him, especially as a man that was moving along on his "death by a thousand cuts" path.

He lacks impulse control, clearly can't tell when he's being baited, and eagerly points at the skeletons in others' closets without first checking to see if he might be dragged down by his own language.

Newt: Mitt is anti-immigrant!
Mitt: Did you say "ghetto language"?

Newt: Mitt made money from Fannie and Freddie investments
Mitt: Have you checked your own funds?

- was willing to waive sanctions on Iraq if it helped US businesses - this before Gulf War 1

Remember the first 40 or 50 debates (give or take) when Newt concentrated his fire on the media and Obama? Sure, it was kind of a show, but it was good politics.

Now I know that it would have been impossible to completely run a non-negative campaign, but it's hard to fathom that he could just completely ignore the playbook that got him where he is today.

> But sometimes they just say they have the backing of their family when it really is not true. For example, Laura Bush was supportive of Bush 43 running but the twins seemed to not really accept it until he was running for reelection. Now, in the case of Daniels, the decision became more of a story than a potential platform and when the family history was considered in light of the situation, it looked incredibly bad. Ultimately, though, if his family was against the idea, it was better than he stayed out of this one.

Come on, I think we're at an impasse now--but with the stock market crashing, Bush having a 28% approval rating in Gallup, a recession underway for at least a year, people predicting a Depression lasting years into the future, and an unpopular war (irrespective of what you think of Iraq, it was unpopular), I really don't think it's reasonable to believe the way McCain ran his campaign and his not attacking Obama more were the key factors.

No matter what political strategy you take, outside factors eventually weigh in on things. There was no way Hoover was going to win 1932 no matter how he campaigned. There was no way any Republican was going to win in 2008, no matter what they did.

I think there's some dullness because we're at a critical stage in the grief progression:

Denial
Anger
Bargaining
Depression
Acceptance

We're clearly not at Acceptance yet. At that point, people start to realize how preferable Mitt is to Obama. Some few are still in Denial. More are in Anger, and Bargaining. Most are in Depression. So some dullness would be expected.

A pianist was hired to play background music for a movie. When it was
completed he asked when and where he could see the picture. The
producer sheepishly confessed that it was actually a porno film and it
was due out in a month.
A month later, the musician went to a
porno theater to see it. With his collar up and dark glasses on, he took
a seat in the back row, next to a couple who also seemed to be in
disguise.
The movie was even raunchier than he had feared, featuring group sex, S/M and even a dog.
After a while, the embarrassed pianist turned to the couple and said, "I'm only here to listen to the music."
"Yeah?" replied the man. "We're only here to see our dog."

In 2012 Romney has a cult of personality thing going on


The idea of a Mitt cult of personality has some merit as a humorous premise. Thousands of people getting their sideburns greyed. Sales of discrete, restrained hair gel sales going wild. Mitt's face tatooed onto chicks' lower backs. Shepherd Fairey posters with "Be Like Mitt" in three colors below his thoughtful portrait.

But it needs a slogan. "Change" is played out. How about "Restructure?"

It's made 25 minutes or so from here, and I imagine I've passed it up a few times on local store shelves, but I have tasted "Pliny the Elder," and it was really good, but it was so hoppy and insistent that tasting it about once every five years would do me fine.

HIS TURN...according to the repub establishment.
I'm old and haven't really kept up with all the do this- do that..or you're gonnna die thing. Now that I think about it, maybe that was a good life choice. I probably won't be here to see the end result of all this silliness. Most of you will...have fun with that!

that is simply silly. I am in no way a fan of romney and there is no way in hell I will not drag my sorry ass to the polling place to vote for him against obama.

It is silly and counterproductive to suggest that we have lost because romney is the likely candidate. doing anything to demotivate conservative voters is entirely wrongheaded. as undesirable as romney is he is better than obama. romney can certainly beat obama and likely will. if obama were not feeling a little desperate he would not be flailing about making stupid decisions like leaving afghanistan early, releasing obviously falsified employment numbers, and delaying the keystone pipeline. all of these are bad decisions and all of them are being done to shore up his base, they are not signs of a strong candidate getting ready take the middle.

it may not be popular to say but obama was an affirmative action hire gone wrong and everyone, on both sides of the aisle, knows it and will not be renewing his contract this year.

Oh yeah, and a bunch of people go to vote on election day without knowing who the Vice President is. If a person made it to September or October 2008 without knowing who controlled Congress, getting that person to know who controlled Congress and convincing him that Congress, the party in control of Congress for the past couple years, and not the President, bears the blame for the current state of affairs is easier said than done.

Convincing that person that a specific Senator bears more blame than the President for the economy is also easier said than done. You don't just have to run the right ad or give out the right soundbite. You have to provide him with a high school civics lesson and hope that this time the guy will pay attention to it. You also have to do this when the media is in the bag for your opponent.

I do not like romney and I do not care what any else across the aisle does either. as bad as he may be, and he does seem to be "a little liberal", I do not believe he is as bad as obama. There was a time where liberals and conservatives were both proud of America and patriotic but differed on some ideas. Now liberals are arguably patriotic or at least are not patriotic in any normal sense of the word. obama is so far left that, in my opinion, the question is whether he is socialist or communist. romney is definitely better than obama. in this case the devil you know is definitely worse than the one you do not know.

That being said, I think it is equally important for conservatives to focus on gaining in the house and taking the senate, that give us insurance against romney going off reservation.

531 .223 is loaded to the adverised civilian pressure of 50-53,000 psi or so. 5.56 is loaded to a higher military pressure, something closer to 58-60,000psi. Rifles marked .223 should not use 5.56 (unless the ammo isloaded to the lower presure).
The Ruger Mini-14 is marked for .223, but apparently is designed to work with 5.56, and Ruger will say so (or they will say otherwise).

I'm honestly surprised it was that low. A higher number has been polled in the past who went to the ballot box on election day without knowing who the VP was. You might as well ask "how many of them wouldn't have voted for Obama if they they paid attention to politics?" because that's the problem here more than a specific campaign strategy. I agree McCain screwed up and should have emphasized it, but that's not something that that's going to change much.

This all beside the fact that, for McCain to be the wrong pick in '08, a conservative had to be running then who would have done better.

I worked with the Japanese for over 20yrs. They're pretty much like us. Middle class, sense of duty, sense of humor.

But when you live in a place the size of California with twice as many people and half as much arable land, you might tend to be either paranoid or fatalistic.

arbalest has a different opinion than I do.

Modern rifles are incredibly strong, and can handle pressures that simply don't exist in any commercial cartridges.

Maybe on a hot day with a hot load and a dirty barrel you may approach the limits of your rifle, but I would doubt it.

The issue is barrel life, not safety.

.223 is loaded to the adverised civilian pressure of 50-53,000 psi or
so. 5.56 is loaded to a higher military pressure, something closer to
58-60,000psi. Rifles marked .223 should not use 5.56 (unless the ammo
isloaded to the lower presure).

578 Hammersmith Police: No problem.

For many years, I thought like Tinsley's, then I stumbled across this info on Wiki about ayear ago. Wiki, being Wiki, needs checking. In this case, Wiki seems to be correct. Tinsley's is correct, that modern rifles are quite strong, but the .223/5.56 seems to be something like using 38+P in a .38, or maybe 38+P+ in a .38 ... not like using a .357loading, but the ammo is much closer to the design limit, and the designed factor of safety may be or is being exceeded.

I usually like a large factor of safety, 2 or more, and I understand that many modern firearms are at 1.3-1.4. If I had to use 5.56 in a .223 rifle (choose: life, or the gang makes it into my house),I would. Since I don't need to fool with such things, I don't.

He was likeable, no scandals, couldn't be blamed for anything, and did well in the debates. If he got in earlier, maybe there could have been something there. However, he got out in January. The best he did was third in SC. Having McCain win over him wasn't a conscious decision, but just a case of him not doing better.

Tinsley's was my sock.

5.56 is simply the military designation for .223. It is dimensionally identical. The bullet weight and powder charge will vary by purpose and manufacturer, but hot civilian .223 will be at least equal to the hottest military round.

Your point about safety margins is valid though. it's of course vitally important to know what you are firing through your weapons, but if you are firing factory loads through a modern rifle, the odds are overwhelming that you will be perfectly safe.

It's not just here; I'm seeing it at lots of blogs and forums. I don't recall a primary season ever being this testy.

Actually, the loud fussy baby wasn't so much of a problem because the fat sloppy fuck had already ruined it for me long before the baby really got fussy.

I think in any other situation I might have liked it, save for those two. It was supposed to be quiet, atmospheric horror. Slow paced, atmospheric, set in turn of the 20th century Engerlond, not a lot of dialogue. If that's you're thing, go for it. In a few weeks, when no one is seeing it.

612 Steck: I have no suggestion,other than to ask for many opinions here, then check and see what you can buy (I'm in CA, so this is a real question to me) where you live. Talk to a couple of knowledgable gun shop people. Sometimes they're easy to find, other times .......

Plan on spending some money; this is a firearm, and quality (quality, reliability, etc.) really count here. I, OTOH have and like SKSs; cheap, brutaly rugged, and I'm willing to fiddle with mine. But I have no sense of immediate threat. If I did, I'd plan on looking at theDPMS and Remington offerings. FN HK have high reputations, and Armalite has been in this specific area for a long time. But I live in CA,so I don't have easy access to such items ... we have laws.

And right now, I'm waiting on a part so I can fit my 12ga with my new rifled muzzle loader barrel.

I recently stumbled across "Garand" .30-06 ammon at Cheaper Than Dirt ... apparently, modern (2010?) .30-06 loadings can damage the Garand action. I did not know this. I choose to believe it, until I get information to the contrary.

Don't think "damage" is the right word, but I have seen .30-06 -- in person -- that was physically too long to cycle correctly in a Garand. (It was some hunting ammo that would've been perfectly fine in a bolt-action .30-06.)

I fire anything and everything through my Bushmaster AR-15, and I have never had even the hint of trouble.

The Garand is a big, heavy action, so I am surprised that it would show pressure signs with modern ammo.

If you can find the link I would appreciate it. I have an M1 and shoot it as often as possible, and use cheapo ammo.

CBD: I suspect your Bushmaster says 5.56 on the barrel. The Garand action is heavy, but apparently ... and maybe the issue was case length. But I recall loading being the issue. As I do not have an M1, I simply noted the information.

This is NOT your father's Boss 302. It's based on the new Coyote 5.0 motor, dual independent overhead cams, electrically timed, modular motor. Parnelli Jones was on the development team for the new Boss 302 car, and you can also get a Boss 302R that is strictly for the track. You get a driving class if you buy the new Boss.

That means it's chambered for 5.56, so it will shoot the .223 with no issues at all. You can always shoot .223 out of a 5.56 chamber, not necessarily the other way around.

I don't lurk on the daytime threads (I work nights and prefer to stick to that schedule on the days I don't work) so I couldn't say. From what I've heard the ONT is a little more free-wheeling and laid back...but of course we get all the yellow flags. Fuckem if they can't take a joke (there was one particularly infamous ONT thread over a Memorial Day weekend that gave us the rep).

Gushie had a full-size Mosin, a 91/30, that she wanted the recoil pad for (it works great BTW). I would truly love to have an M38 carbine.

Well, of course that is always the preferred solution.
The 5.56/.223 designation just means it was chambered for 5.56 though, and you can shoot .223 through it. Most of the time they don't bother putting .223 on it, but in this case they did.

To be fair, that's easier than knowing anything about how it works.

753 Tammy, what parts did you improvise your perfume tray from?

Why, Thor's heart, his left nut and my big.....blue eyes and a quivering lower lip, of course!

No, seriously, y'all would not believe how stupid I was, I actually forgot my years of observation, and reverted back to stupid illogical female thinking, like he can red my mind and take hints.

I am ashamed to say I wanted that thing so bad I was starting to think up lies, ...so I told myself to get a grip and just tell him!

Only instead of telling him I wanted it, because that feels like begging, I just said "I wanted this so bad I was going to lie about it" and he said he was glad I didn't lie about it. And he said it was pretty.

And then he didn't say anything else. I was expecting him to say I could have it, naturally. And alls he did was go play Skyrim! And all night long, we had a very nice night and all, but not one word did he say about that tray, not no, not yes, and I was shocked.

So this morning we went to breakfast and I swallowed my pride and I said may I please buy that tray? To make a long story slightly less long, he was all shocked, didn't realized I was actually asking for it last night. He thought I was just telling him that I didn't lie to him.

And of course he fussed a little, and sighed, and acted like we are being hauled off to the poorhouse any minute, but he told me to order it.

And I promised him all on my own that I'd turn off the saved search feature on ebay that sends me alerts every time a jeweled tray comes up for sale.

There is an awful lot of merit to this.

It was a little different for Thor than some guys, because I hadn't been with anyone beofre ( go ahead and laugh, I can take it! ) and he didn't want to scare me off, but it really did work. He took it slow and I got curiouser and curiouser, and while I didn't exactly rip his pants off, I was certainly eager, to put it mildly!

Nah, it's 17 inches long, I'm sure it costs that to ship it by the time you add insurance and such. I have paid far more for shipping, believe you me.

DC, we pay our card off every month; I do behave myself for the most part!!

And I am not entirely sure what punting beyond your coverage means, but I am VERY sure that you didn't ,and that she would be the first to agree with me on that.

I made more than Thor for years, but he's makin' bank now. That's part of the reason he his so leary about me, he's afraid I am going to go crazy with money now, especially since his mama left us a goodly sum. He is not altogether wrong to be fearful of that, but I do try and not get toooo crazy toooo often. I realise that money is for retirement.

Posted by: DC in Towson at February 05, 2012 03:02 AM (I/cLr)

hey. well, I would begin by saying your intentions do matter. if you were deliberately reaching afar, well that is a story, not one you tell on a couples date at dinner, but one for here and on hunting trips with the guys.

It would go somthin' like I was making out on a date with the missus after we first met and right next to us was christina effin' hendrick. I mean my wife is hot, but omg you should have sen these things. so after we were past the part where darth vader nearly chokes the guy in the staff meeting using the force I kinda shifted in my seat a little and reached over and grabbed one and bam she knocked my hand away like chewbaca swatting storm troopers. Otherwise, it is cute.

856 Alex, that was an excellent breakdown!! I really need to ask the husband if he remembers exactly. I guess the testosterone factor is what makes the difference.

And it must be the estrogen factor that makes our knees go all weak and our eyes shut so we can't get away! Because I do, I get all weak in the knees and fluttery. And I can't breathe right.

Viva la difference!!!

When they went through the tunnel there was a scream and a slap. When they came out the Frenchman had a large red handprint on his cheek. The spinster thought "The frenchman must have kissed the maiden and gotten slapped for his trouble." The maiden thought" The frenchman must have kissed the spinster by mistake and gotten slapped for his trouble." The Frenchman thought "The American must have kissed the maiden and she slapped me by mistake." And the American thought "Man I can't wait for the next tunnel so I can slap that Frenchman again, he screamed like a little girl!"

870 I am shocked at people's attitudes about debt these days. last company I worked at, the Comptroller told ne his credit card debt was like 100,000 bucks. He said he figured he'd never pay it off, and he just looked at it as the price to pay for having a good life, like his mortgage (which I am sure was close to a million)

This was the finance guy, for crying out loud.

Thor and I just bought our first house three years ago...I was 44, he was 51. We waited and saved up and finally had to forget about even trying to buy in CA. I have never had new furniture in my life, other a small antique armoire for my dance costumes and prettier lingerie, but that is it. Everything else is hand me downs.

873 So, my methlab had an experience yesterday. This is the one that everyone on our condo board, all three of 'em, believes vicious. Our neighbor is selling their apartment. A realtor was showing it to a potential purchaser. Apparently the realtor is illiterate because she walked right up to our door, which is clearly labeled with a different label than the one that is for sale and comes right on in. First, let me say she is lucky I had removed the string from the shotgun's trigger cause this would be a different story altogether.

The realtor and clients made it into the middle of our apartment where they happened upon me on the couch and my methlab sleeping by my side.
Anyway my methlab, who is ruthless and devoted protector outside,just laid there, opened one eye, and went right back to sleep.

I am a little disappointed. My little dog heard the noise all the way at the other end of the apartment, came running out of nowhere, after I had explained to them that they had the wrong effin apartment and needed to learn how to read, and got some shoe.

I may be feeding the methlab too much. Maybe I need to train her to attack purses with lv on them.

==========


Sounds like Thor is big enough to pull off one of the world's best practical jokes -- it goes like this -- he and 5 of his friends, hopefully really tough looking guys set it up with a little acting job -- then there comes a moment when Thor grabs the victim kinda with one arm around the shoulders and lifts him up so his feet are either dangling or barely touching the floor, and then he yells out in a really menacing voice: "Me and him are gonna beat the shit outa all 5 of you!"
You need to be there to snap a photo of the little guys face at the moment he realizes he is supposed to beat up 2-3 thugs at the same time.

899 IRS = Independent Rear Suspension. So far the early 2000's Cobra is the only Mustangs that have it. There really is only a marginal improvement in performance that so far Ford does not feel is worth the additional weight, cost and complexity, but with all the other vehicles in the world getting it it's only a matter of time.

that is another keyboard right there! I can see exactly what you are talking about.

a neighbor used to have a great dane. The great dane could not easily turn around in the hall because of his size so when my little dog would see him, if she was off leash, she would get in behind him and bite at his haunches and anything behind his navel. He would start spinning around and banging his head on the walls while trying to get away. Eventually, if he was in front and heard her behind him he would just take off running.

932 Heh. Our Danes always seemed to know they could solve any problems from a small attacker just by flopping over in their direction. Cat attacking your butt? Sit!

The greater danger was when they were happy and didn't know where their tails were. When I was a kid I had one of those plaster skull piggy banks from a trip to Mexico. About a year later the Dane of that moment, who was very short and thick for a Dane from having been the runt of the litter of ten, was in my room and expressing his joy at the attention he was receiving. His tail didn't knock over the skull bank, it went right through it. Shattered. It was impressive but annoying. The same dog eventually destroyed ever souvenir of that trip. But forgiven on the basis of otherwise being a great fun dog.

That's very interesting, cthulu. And I suppose once you know all systems are go it does get easier!

yankee, it does confuse me at times, but we definitely get called out now and then.

Bebe helped me understand a little better by saying she figured it was when we got too personal with stuff. And that makes sense, because someone making an off color comment or joke is just a temporary thing, but me always asking questions leads to in depth discussion, which can get graphic. And I have no sense of shame, so I will just keep going on and on (like I did the night we were talking about positions)

My problem is, if I think I am being funny, or I am just talking about something in an informational way, I don't notice if it's getting..what's the word...prurient?

For instance, I could tell y'all a semi funny/cute (in my opinion) story about how we totally missed a huge clue that I had a 12 lb fibroid tumor growing in me that had attached itself to my colon. But I"d have to tell ya something else that'd lead us down a very slippery slope, although it'd also help with my question but I"m just sayin' that we will and have gotten busted.

The Move package with much lesser games is usually around $99. I'm definitely getting one of these, though it mean finding a way to make it co-exist with the Kinect. Maybe the PS3 camera can mount to the top of the TV.

966 Tammy, you can probably trade the extra copy for something else, although I'd move fast as the market for the title may get saturated because of the deal. Killzone 3 is a fair bit older. I believe I have it already from a $10 Black Friday promo at GameStop two years ago. Almost certainly still in the shrinkwrap like so many other bargains I couldn't resist. But the Move setup with the gun thingy is worth the $60 alone. The range of games that use it well is limited but has enough bright spots to make it worthwhile. Some are revised version of titles that were already very worthwhile, like Heavy Rain and Little Big Planet 2.

1028 The 795 doesn't look like it has a full bull barrel. I shot Olympic style .22 for a while and IIRC we used some Winchester single shot models from the DMC. The 10 ring was the diameter of a .22 bullet.

1041 I ran across this for the morning news thread. Any of the ONT folks still left may be interested in it.

Hey Morons, a lot of those “temporary” tax breaks expired Dec 31 so when you get around to doing your taxes next year expect some changes. If you are like me and have to file quarterly you need to factor this shit in.

One thing this year is the good old Alternative Income Tax. No temporary “fix” this time to keep it off the middle class. You folks remember that one right? The one that was supposed to assure that people like Warrant Buffet paid taxes and didn’t use specialized loopholes that his lobbyists squeaked through to get out of any taxes. The one that if it had been indexed for inflation would not kick in until income reached about $2M/year.

I have a veritable ton of 30-30 hand loads. Back in the old days you could scavenge 30-30 brass by the ton at the shooting ranges. I loaded a bunch in different bullet weights.

1052 I prefer Winchesters to Marlins -- I think they're superior firearms. The only drawback with the Winchester is that you can't scope it. That doesn't bother me, though because for plain fun shooting I prefer iron sights. Last time I shot my 94 I had no problem hitting clay birds at 300 yards.

We would dig into the sand bank behind the rifle range for lead bullets. We'd melt them down in a tin can and sell them at the scrap yard.

We never thought to scavenge any brass, but we were kids (and we were young).

1059 One thing this year is the good old Alternative Income Tax. No temporary “fix” this time to keep it off the middle class.

One thing I got really, really good at in business is calculating yield. When I look at the risk/reward of starting another business (where I would no doubt have to 'bet the house' once again) then calculate the yield on bumping family earnings higher, then factor in the AMT, that yield shrinks into the 'not even worth considering' area. Sure I could create jobs, and there are probably thousands of people like me... but people intelligent enough to start-up a business and improve the nations employment have to get something in return. Not get smacked over the head on April 15th.

Good advice. Too bad I'm too poor to do it. I put a set of Pachmeyer grips on my model 29 .44 and Colt Officers model .45 and was pleased with both. The definitely helped with the felt recoil of the .44. I hear Houge and Uncle Mike's make nice grips, too.

If you threw out the cities and looked at a county by county electoral map of the 2008 election (link at bottom) I think you'd see that the whole country looks red. Yeah, to a certain extent there is a north vs south thing, but in my opinion it's the cities vs the suburban and rural areas.

Yeah I have seen that. Where the North/South, and also a Coastal vs mid-country, thing comes in is that there are more large urban areas there which makes it that way.

There are definitely better concealed carry pieces -- thinner, lighter and with a higher capacity -- but smaller caliber. I bought my Colt over 20 years ago when there were fewer quality alternatives. I don't think they've manufactured the Officers Model for years.

It's a reliable pistol, I've had no feed problems and very few stovepipe jams. The ones I've had were probably my fault from weak wristing while using cheap PMC ammo. You can shoot Federal FMJ through it all day long without a problem. As to carrying it Condition 1, just think of it as a baby Model 1911-A1, which it basically is.

1090 I hope you don't think I was disparaging farmers there??? I like farmers; always have. And that goes no matter which State you find them in.

I don't think you get it, Vic.

You are partitioning America by geography.
This is BS.

Maybe it makes you feel better by questioning the patriotism of Americans by where they live rather than by where they stand. You are no better than the race-baiters that try to divide people by the color of their skin.

We have more in common than we have opposed to each other.

We have to break it and tear it down so we can make it better, see? And Charlie Pelosi is gonna lead the team to the new Super Bowl just over the horizon. See it over there?

1098 One other thought on that. If she does retire before the election it will be a sure sign that the Democrats have decided they are going to lose.

1100 I don't notice the evenings getting longer as much as I do the sun rising earlier. I like to sit outside and read the papers while having a smoke and a coffee. Too bad both papers are liberals rags.

The only conservative column is by Kraut in one paper. Sometimes they also run an occasional Ramirez cartoon, but only his tamer ones. The rest is cribbed from places like the LA Times or Washington Post. I skim that stuff to see what idiot themes the left is lately passing. You know you've got a terrible paper when the main editorial is by Mitch Albom.

1103 Vic, gerrymandering the voting districts illustrates one of your points about electoral results. For instance, ultra-liberal Austin, TX divided its metro districts so as to swallow all of the outlying agricultural regions. Put a tip of densely populated Austin into the corner of a large but sparsely populated neighboring county, and all of the country folk who vote hardline conservative end up with no representation.

I didn't read it. I wonder what kind of liberal claptrap the left is pushing with this claim.

Guess I'll have to read the article to find out. I'll probably enjoy it as much as a hernia.

1115 Vic,

I grew up outside the city but have lived in the city for longer than I intended. When I first moved to the city I felt hemmed in and when I would go back home on vacations I would feel like I was going back to normal. I have no lived in the city long enough that when I go back to the country and find myself driving through spaces where I can see for miles and miles around me there is a different "feeling" literally. You feel like "there is a lot of open space here, who knows what is out there." I like the wide open spaces better than the claustrophobic city spaces but once you are acclimated to the city it does feel peculiar to go to the country.

nice job on the news Vic.

Posted by: yankeefifth at February 05, 2012 07:51 AM (loM0R)

1117 I read that article and it is actually a pretty good article. It mainly shows the divide in the black community about what they themselves prefer to be called.

Apparently younger blacks do not like the appellation of AA. That is something conservatives have been decrying for a long time. There should be no "hyphenated Americans". It looks like young blacks now agree with conservatives, at least on this score.

And besides, look who is said to have invented the term AA; good old Jesse Jackson. Most blacks that I know personally say that he does not represent them and they feel like he does not represent blacks in general.

That's it. I'm amazed the media has caught on to the fact and written about it.

Remember all of the buzz about Roots?

Remember how Amistad was a bust?

I think this is sort of like the difference between today's generation and my 89 year old father's. In his day everyone was concerned about your ethnic heritage. Everybody could tell you if someone was a Latvian or Polish by their last name. And ethnic groups were very clannish. People used to spend their Friday nights getting drunk at their own bar and then go to the Italian/Polish/Irish -- take your pick -- bar to start a fight.

Some people only a few years older than me are still very concerned about ethnicity, but for my and following generations, not so much.

Since we have so many old geezers here, however, ethnicity still plays a big part in politics. Almost as much as the Mafia. But for the most part, people 30 and under now don't care what your nationality is.

------------------------------------


LOL, a little different here. When I first moved here had a discussion with one of the locals about good "watering holes". Within the conversation one of the things he discussed was the "SC redneck way" for a fun night.

Item one go to bar and get drunk. Pick a fight with anyone willing and someone always was. If not, go to another bar to find one. After fight go to a different bar to find easy lay for the night.

So order of priority was drunk - fight - screw. I was still in my 20s then but still knew that priorities like that were a sure way to trouble.

Posted by: Vic at February 05, 2012 08:19 AM (YdQQY)

1128 #1124 This is quite true. I am a member of my Scottish clan's organization, and everyone in it is over 50. They attract younger people with things like Highland games, re-enactments, etc.

Part of this is that people don't stay in ethnic enclaves like they did when I was a child. They tend to move not only out of the old neighborhoods but also out of state.

Younger people also don't care as much about family history, but that does change as they get older and have children of their own.
