Overnight Open Thread (30 Nov 2012)

Evenin' morons. Another Friday is upon us so grab a cold one and regale the horde with your tales of, well, whatever is on your mind.

In China....

In China, A House In The Middle Of The Road. Poor guy didn't want to sell his house to the Chinese government for a new road. You can see how the government responded. I'm actually surprised they just didn't run a few tanks through his house and say oops, my bad.

AoSHQ Lifestyle?

Is Lindsey Lohan overdoing the AoSHQ Lifestyle or just not doing it right? Lohan Is Drinking Two Liters Of Vodka A Day.

Perhaps Lohan should read How To Increase Your Drinking Tolerance (So You Don't Make An Ass Of Yourself At A Holiday Party).

Adult Industry & College Debt

How Sex Work Has Replaced A Bar Job For Students Who Struggle To Pay Bills, Loans And University Fees.

Research by Dr Ron Roberts, of the University of Kingston, published in 2010 suggested that one in four students know someone who had worked in the sex industry to fund their studies – up from three per cent in 1990. Dr Roberts found 16 per cent would consider working in the industry while more than one in 10 were open to the idea of being an escort.

Study Of Dark Personalities

This might explain SCOAMF's popularity. Psychology Uncovers Sex Appeal Of Dark Personalities.

The findings reinforce previous research showing that narcissists are more popular than others, literally at first sight. Mitja Back and Boris Egloff of Johannes Gutenberg-University of Mainz along with Stefan Schmukle at Westfalische Wilhelms-University of Muenster conducted a study in 2010 where they collected information on students’ personalities and then had them briefly introduce themselves to one another. After these brief introductions, the students filled out surveys asking about the first impressions made by each other. Students scoring higher on narcissism were seen as more likeable. People perceived the narcissists as more likeable and found that they had flashier appearances, more confident body language, and more attractive facial expressions. Together with Holtzman and Strube’s findings, this suggests that narcissists are more skilled at carrying and presenting themselves in a way that immediately impresses others.

21 I have a friend that tried the Logan drinking diet. I could not keep up.

He finally burned out. His liver almost quit, he spent a week in the hospital and almost died.

The shit is cumulative. When you are young you can get away with a lot, your liver rebuilds itself if you give it six weeks, but after a constant assault, it will fail.

My buddy? Hasn't had ANY alcohol in two years. They gave him the choice, keep drinking, die. Stop, maybe you will live.

They are not hard, just google up shrimp and grits.

The key? DO NOT over cook the shrimp. If you do they will be tough as shoe leather. Do the grits and shrimp separate and do not put the shrimp in until the last moment before serving.

My parents bought Chevys from the time I was about 7 until today, which spans the mid-80s onward. The van and assorted other sedans spent so much time in the shop that I and my three siblings were inspired to avoid Chevys (IIRC, we have a Volkswagen, two Dodges, a Toyota, and a Hyundai).

Yeah it was cool. She seemed to really enjoy it. I was impressed, normally keeping her still and neat at the table is a horrible job. But she did great. Tonight at dinner with my whole fam?

I thought the same thing. Doesn't pass the BS meter. She weights 100-120.
Two liters is what 66 ozs. that's 33 two oz shots.

She is awake 16 hours? That's two shots every hour she is awake. She would die of alcohol poisoning. Your body will dispose of a shot an hour, that would still leave 16 shots in her body or a quart of vodka. Assume it is 80 proof or 40% alcohol, that would mean she would have over 12 oz of pure alcohol in her body. Which would mean she was DEAD.

You could also check in with the local DA and Better Business Bureau. You're probably not the first person to get screwed over.

Nah, just call the Toyota rep and explain the situation. I know Hendrick, his dealers on the whole are honest. What has happened as sales went down a lot of the dealerships tried to squeeze more revenue out of the service department.

My wife has a GMC Envoy at the beach. She took it in two years ago to have them service it. They loaded her up with the "bad water pump" trick and hoses and belts. I said nothing, she was in charge. She went back a year later for a "free" checkup and cheap oil change. Guess what? They told her her water pump was bad.

She figure out what was up and pulled out her receipt from the year before with the life time parts warranty. Needless to say they were somewhat embarrassed to be caught red handed cheating. Always ask them to keep any old parts for you to inspect. NEVER give a dealer or shop a blank card. Demand an estimate BEFORE any work is done. Most dealers do that automatically to avoid trouble.

121 Since the previous thread got overrun by this one, you shall be treated to my post on the struggle the US had to keep control of Guadalcanal. Yes I am reposting it.

The Battle of Savo Sound was a disaster. Marines had just gone ashore. From Rabaul the Japanese sortied a strong force. At night this force slipped by the DD USS Blue and another DD. Both cans were at the opposite ends of their patrols and the IJN cruisers slipped between their radar scopes. So the first warning men aboard USS Vicennes, HMAS Canberra, and other ships was when the IJN cruisers opened fire. It was a massacre and start of calling it Iron Bottom Sound.

Oct Admiral Scott took a cruiser force to oppose the Tokyo Express and managed to derail it. In Nov Scott was involved in CA/DD duel with the IJN. This was the infamous call of cease fire because the US formation got messed up and Scott though US ships were firing on each other. By the end of this battle, Adm Scott would be dead and his flagship USS San Francisco had taken more than 20 hits.

Then there was the BB duel between USS Washington and USS South Dakota under the command of Admiral Lee. Prelude to this combat, according to one source, he told the Peter Tares to back off and his name was 'Chinese Catchee.' The two US BBs slugged it out with the IJN BBs Hiei and Kirishima.

There were also pure DD duels. Ainsworth, Moosbrugger, and Burke. From one of these combats Arleigh Burke got the nickname '31-knot Burke.'

As for USS New Orleans. IIRC from 'And Pass the Ammunition' which was written by New Orleans chaplain, after Tassafaronga, a temporary wooden bow was fitted in theatre before she returned home for repairs. The concussion of the torpedo hit that tore away the bow and No. 1 turret killed the entire gun crew of No. 2 turret. After the battle sailors from other divisions manned No.2 turret.

It helps if you have an idea of what you want. For example, "I want no felony or misdemeanor on my record, and am willing to eat shit in other areas to make that happen."

Might cost you more cash, more community service, or even a year of 12 step meetings. But, you get what you want/need.

146 Hi folks. I can't stay but here's a puppeh for you:

https://twitter.com/moxiemom/status/274717206695272449

Also, I would love it if there was a thread(s) devoted to how our various employers/businesses are dealing with Obamacare. The first several hundred pages of rules were released this week to my husband's place of work and they were told to expect 10,000 more pages in the next couple of weeks. Implementation is expected to begin Jan 1st.

Anyway, in their first round of meetings about it, his employer (which is a state institution and therefore being guided by Utah's interpretation of Obamacare) has estimated they would face over $3M in fines if they fail to comply. Apparently, the fine is calculated based on their entire employee base. So if ONE part-time person goes over the 29hr limit, they are fined not based on that one person but based on all of their employees.

This is very different than the "just pay the $3,000 fine" thing I'd been reading all over the place. Has anyone else encountered this yet?

Surely a lawsuit could at least come up with a reasonable period of time for them to implement 10,000 pages of regulations. Incidentally, the regs they've already gotten are contradictory with others already on the books, so that's lovely too.

If our car is running okay, perhaps a long time. It can be indicative of different things. Typically an electronic sensor has failed that otherwise feeds info to the engines computer. Many auto parts houses can plug in their computer to your car and the car will tell their device which sensor has gone bad.

Take your car to Autozone or O'Reilly Auto Parts, any of the major chains. They can run a quick test and tell you what is setting off the service message. Knowing what the problem is will tell you what it will cost you to fix it.

Tolerance is an amazing thing. When I diet I stop drinking totally. I go from at least two or three bottles of wine a day to zero.

When I start back maybe two or three months later, I can get totally bombed on two glasses on wine. I find that if I drink more than two, I get a hang over.

I have to work into serious drinking, which requires some pain in the morning when you have not been drinking. Worst hang over I ever had was after a birthday party when I had just started drinking again and thought I had my old tolerance. Bad idea.

246 Coming from a long line of boozers, here's a few tips for hardcore drinking.

You should eat a greasy meal a few h ours beforehand. Eggs, fish, and such are good.

Preemptively reduce the acid in your stomach with an antacid or something similar.

Down vitamins, esp. B-Vitamins. Also, plenty of fish oil and other such pills if you have them.

Drink milk to coat your stomach to reduce irritation that might make you blow. Hell, if you are serious you'll down a few tablespoon of straight oil (e.g. olive, walnut, &c.)

Avoid dark colored drinks, drinks that are cobonated, or drinks that are sweet or have other things. Drink decent booze. Pick one thing and stay with it, alternating a glass of water with your drink.

ALWAYS make sure you have a ride to get you home, or at worst, a hospital. ALWAYS bring a bag to hurl in when someone is driving you around.

If someone tells you take a break with the drinking, there is probably a good reason.

Above all else, practice!

An independent mechanic you can trust is worth his weight in gold (or at least silver dimes). I almost never take a vehicle to the dealer anymore. The guy I use now is a pain in the ass to get to, but he has been straight with me for years. On at least three occasions, he has solved a "major" problem diagnosed by other mechanics for hundreds of dollars less when he could have easily given me the same diagnosis and charged me the higher price.

Most dealers (I exclude GM and Chrylser) are tied in with the factory/manufacturer and would work with you on a bad estimate on a bad repair.

I drink heavily myself, but I don't get how you could consume 2 liters
of vodka a day. I don't think it's physically possible. esp considering
her size


I thought the same thing. Doesn't pass the BS meter. She weights 100-120.
Two liters is what 66 ozs. that's 33 two oz shots.

She is awake 16 hours? That's two shots every hour she is awake. She would die of alcohol poisoning. Your body will dispose of a shot an hour, that would still leave 16 shots in her body or a quart of vodka. Assume it is 80 proof or 40% alcohol, that would mean she would have over 12 oz of pure alcohol in her body. Which would mean she was DEAD.

Posted by: Billy Bob, the guy who drinks in SC at November 30, 2012 10:23 PM


thx for doing that ancient, dead white male practice of doing the fucking math. My bullshit meter pegged on the "2 liter" claim as well. I'm really damn good at drinkin', and I probably weigh twice (and some added fractions) what she does, but my first thought was "2 liters? Let me just concede right now, you are the winner"

That said, tolerances can be built up, but I think it's a stretch. 2 liters is a lot of vodka. 2 liters would be a lot of peppermint schnapps.

Then again, I WORK for a living. If my available cash / available free time where somehow both increased by several orders of magnitude, I maybe could be a contender. Doubt it, don't care to try.

I have a libtard cow-orker who's signature line is:

"Why do I drink? Three reasons: I like it, I can afford it; and I'm good at it."

Common ground. To build on.

Maybe we should have a drinkers thread here at the AoSHQ. The Gamers got theirs', why not us?

344 I have zero tolerance. I started drinking at age 13 by siphoning off a tiny bit from each of the dozen bottles in my Dad's liquor cabinet so he wouldn't notice. He wasn't a big drinker, but he liked having a well-stocked cabinet for socializing. He never knew. I confessed when I was older and he was stunned he never realized.

Anyway, I'd take that thermos bottle and bike over to my friends and we'd bike or boat somewhere secluded to drink in the hot summer sun. There was a great hidden spot with a rope swing a bunch of us would go.

Ah, what could go wrong with a bunch of drunken 13-14 year olds sneaking off to a hidden alcove without telling anybody where they might be, getting hammered, climbing trees, and doing trick flips off a rope swing? Amazingly, nobody ever got seriously injured.

That suicide mixture in that hot thermos bottle was the most disgusting thing on the planet. Had to choke down that garbage juice. The result is I have a gag reflex to this day to hard alcohol. My early exposure to drinking pretty much turned me off of to all but the weakest beers and occasional red wine.

Thank you for your concern. I'm no worse than anyone else here I guess. Long term despair and all that. I have kids and I want my country back.

Plus November is always tough for me because of the drastic reduction in sunlight. I usually nosedive in November.

But no, I'm not going to do anything stupid I don't think. I'm actually more hopeful about my own personal situation than I have been in twenty years because this election has infused me with purpose.

Peaches, I wouldn't be given all this shit if I couldn't handle it. My hubby brought me flowers today, and we laughed that the California grower labeled them as star fighter lilies instead of stargazer lilies. I think three was a stoned Star Wars fan working at the time.

My baby girl is doing great! We have the same doctor, and at her follow up, he said the surgery was successful, no hole in her bladder, ureters and kidneys functioning properly, and, in his words, miraculously no kidney damage. He told her she should have been on dialysis with the kind of defect she ad, and he couldn't believe her kidneys were pristine.

In my mind, if I are to have a tumor for her to have a clean bill of health, it is entirely worth it.

They didn't stop to consider that the individual teams might then respond to the new market pressures by jumping conferences.

back."

Sympathies. It's a tough business, cancer is.

Don't know what course of treatment you have pursued so far. I myself would go off-label with a "cocktail" approach rather than try the conventional oncology approach. There is a quiet patient-driven revolution starting to happen in cancer care.

403 The best way to mark your booze bottles is to turn them upside down (with the lid kept on, obviously) and mark them upside down. That way the true mark is under the level of the spirit when it's turned right side up making it less noticeable to the (potential) miscreant.

406 When Navy goes to the Big East, do you still think the Army-Navy game will be on the last Saturday of the season?

It's a shame in my opinion.

Posted by: Truman North at November 30, 2012 11:36 PM (I2LwF)


I assume Navy negotiated that. Until two years ago the Army-Navy game was the first weekend of December but it was moved until the second weekend to avoid the conference championships.

Go Navy, beat Army!!!!!!

UCLA just missed a FG with 34 seconds left. Sucks to be the kicker.

It's all about getting the conference network on the expanded cable package that most people get. So that everybody in the cities and states where the conf has a presence are paying $1/month in rights fees, even the people who don't watch or care about college football.

That's why at this point Big Ten is just targeting large TV markets. It's all about cable subscription fees.

I agree. And I didn't intend to start some kind of war. I was stunned when Maet stepped in. But I do have my opinions and I like expressing them. Which is like THE thing that bonds all Morons IMO. I'm also adamantly opposed to LIB but I've kept fairly quiet because I lot of people I really really like are in that camp. But I felt the need to speak up, so I did.

While I disagree with Sven a fair bit, I certainly don't wish him ill and my true hope is that he turns his passion towards fighting for the America that can be.

The sports channel's I have here (in Toronto) are showing junior league games like from the OHL; and classic games to fill the air time and stop hockey withdrawal symptoms from appearing.

Unfortunately for me I think the World Junior Championship (Christmas to around New Year) is on a network I no longer get so I'll be screwed out of that that's very popular here.

471 ACC is the limping antelope right now, though. And the big boys are stalking it waiting to strike.
Conventional wisdom now is we end up with 4 Super Conference of 16+ each.
Big Ten, SEC, and Pac-12 spots are secure. Big 12 and ACC are fighting to the death for the 4th spot.
Last year ACC looked strong and Big12 looked weak. Big12 lost Nebraska and Colorado, the Missouri and Texas A&M.

Meanwhile, ACC added Pitt and Syracuse. Then ACC made a special deal with Notre Dame.

ACC was feeling confident. But Big12 righted the ship. And Big12 always had the ace in the hole -- Texas. The biggest richest athletic program in the country.

ACC was feeling cocky. Then the Big Ten steals Maryland out of the blue. And the other conferences smell blood in the water.

ACC's panicked addition of Louisville reeks of desperation.

There's 14 schools in the ACC now, but only 8-10 spots open in the Big Ten, SEC, and Big 12. All the big schools are inching to the door while pledging loyalty to the ACC. But it's lifeboat ethics and nobody wants to be left alone with Wake Forest when all is said and done.

Humiliation for two male (AZ) high school students as they are forced to hold hands as a punishment for fighting

"Freshman Charles Crockett, 14, and a sophomore known only as Julio got into a scuffle in P.E. class at Westwood High, Mesa, on Wednesday. School principal Tim Richards gave the boys a simple choice - be suspended or face some public humiliation."

493 One problem with the 4x16 Super Conference idea. It's not clear where the Pac-12 gets 4 more teams. Only the Big Ten and Big 12 border Pac-12. Nobody would leave the Big Ten for the Pac-12 -- Big Ten makes more money.

And the Big 12 have their Grant of Rights provision that makes it nearly impenetrable to being raided. ACC tried to do the same, but the schools wouldn't vote for it.

According to the flick, he cursed God for failing him. So, kinda hard to see how that works out.

For other reason I don't think the movie worked. It seemed too artificial, too artificial.

It really didn't sell the relationships very well. As in other Coppola's later work, the sets and costumes are the best parts. YMMV.

Meh. I was an arts and leisure major in college (I got better...), and when we got to 19th century literature, we read Dracula (and other vampire literature). Dracula is NOT a very good book, but it's a great story and has a lot of atmosphere. So, yeah, even though the relationships are fakey fake, as they are in the book, the movie gets the themes right, at least.

556 I used to drink a bottle of vodka, more or less from about 6:30pm to 12 or 1 after work. OK, I would actually drink about 3/4 of that most nights, but I would maybe have it with 3 or 4 beers. On weekends it was 1 bottle of vodka and maybe 5 or 6 beers starting at 2 in the afternoon.

Bottom line is Lindsay is having more than 1 liter a day. Probably opening one, losing another and buying a third. It's hard to keep track. She probably has bottles stashed in multiple places. Maybe some coke, a nap, etc. It's totally doable.

559 Kate Upton is a thousand different kinds of adorable. If she had a little more curve to her hips, she'd be perfect. As it is, she is only 99.9 percent perfect. And still I love her, she is so stinkin' CUTE.

560 I don't like to actually USE bar soap for washing
because of the potential for nastiness getting stuck to it, but I love
them as sachets in closets, drawers, under the car seats, etc.

Posted by: Tammy al-Thor at December 01, 2012 12:39 AM (67DpE)


Soap is self-cleaning. Besides, those are probably just leg hairs on it, right?

Something what smells good and is used to make other things smell good, too.

Well, really it's usually a little sack like thing or a packet filled with smell good stuff, but the soap serves the same purpose.

I am terribly, terribly fond of scented things.

Gagging here. I am SO phobic about hair, you have NO IDEA. Worse than AtC about spiders.

I think I had been married 3 or 4 years before I realized what I thought was pubic hair was in fact just Thor's leg hair.

And now that I'm here with no husband to clean it out, I buy a new hair catcher thing for the shower every week. I cannot bring myself to pull the hair off the fucker...ugh, gagging again.

It's a word I'd use, just not the only one. I think "cute" is a word that gets used for extremely good looking people when they still look like normal human beings (even if they're so far out on the right end of the good-looking bell curve they're outliers to the outliers). Kate Upton still looks like a (incredibly good looking) regular person, which is not common with the models in general. The others tend to be "exotic" in some way or another.

576 You know, with all the conservatives realizing how really screwed this country just might be, who knows, maybe people are willing to be open minded.


I was just reading a Mark Steyn piece: tinyurl.com/c5sba6l


If (in Milton Himmelfarb's famous formulation) Jews earn like Episcopalians but vote like Puerto Ricans, Americans are taxed like Puerto Ricans but vote like Scandinavians. We already have a more severely redistributive taxation system than Europe, in which the wealthiest 20 percent of Americans pay 70 percent of income tax while the poorest 20 percent shoulder just three-fifths of 1 percent. By comparison, the Norwegian tax burden is relatively equitably distributed. Yet Obama now wishes "the rich" to pay their "fair share" – presumably 80 percent or 90 percent. After all, as Warren Buffett pointed out in The New York Times this week, the Forbes 400 richest Americans have a combined wealth of $1.7 trillion. That sounds like a lot, and once upon a time it was. But today, if you confiscated every penny the Forbes 400 have, it would be enough to cover just over one year's federal deficit. And after that you're back to square one. It's not that "the rich" aren't paying their "fair share," it's that America isn't. A majority of the electorate has voted itself a size of government it's not willing to pay for.


A couple of years back, Andrew Biggs of the American Enterprise Institute calculated that, if Washington were to increase every single tax by 30 percent, it would be enough to balance the books – in 25 years. If you were to raise taxes by 50 percent, it would be enough to fund our entitlement liabilities – just our current ones, not our future liabilities, which would require further increases. This is the scale of course correction needed.



That's the scale. That's the real problem, isn't it? The biggest threat facing our nation? The source of the most pressing of our current woes? 50% tax rates across the board, and we still would not solve the long term entitlement problem we have! 50% tax rates (would you even work? LOFL I would quit and get a cash job) would only cover our current liabilities. That's how much we owe already. Will you pay it? Will you work for half? Can we even pay that back or is it too late already?


Some say our budget woes are actually our greatest national security threat, more dangerous than Iran. The guy who made Red Dawn says these days, the invading army is the Federal Government.


Looking back over the years, while we weren't listening, while we thought everything was going OK even though we were busy building this very moment, were there any politicians that warned us?


Any that were responsible and leveled with us and tries to tell us how bad off we really were, even if we didn't listen and got angry at them for telling us things we didn't want to hear or admit?


Any that actually tried to address anything close to the scope of the problem now before us, obvious to some for 40 years? Knowing what we are facing, did anyone make any attempt to push anything that could have even theoretically worked and prevented this?


During the last presidential primary, did any conservative clearly show they even understood the full scope of the problem?


I can only think of 1 crazy bastard. I think his name is Representative Don Quixote, noble crazy bastard. Windmills may not be tipable, but you have to admire a man who tries anyway, even if he is a little off his rocker.

My Dad has a fetish for that. He puts them everywhere. Drawers, closets, under the bed even. On one of his two week "I'm going overseas with the Navy to fuck off and drink beer and only work on the aircraft if it's broke" cruises to Rota, Spain he brought back 40 or 50 bars of this soap. Very Perfumey. We were still finding it in drawers, storage trunks, etc, over 20 years later.

Still smelled pretty good.....

I just don't think there's a "rebuild" or "phoenix" option either.

The Phoenix is a mythical creature, not a strategy.

I just don't have an answer that will work in time unless people stop acting like people, and I know *that's* not an option.

Ace's Prophesy from earlier this very week:

What I can't understand is the simple hate, the
hate for hate's sake, the hate of The Other for the sake of Self-Affirmation. I
especially can't understand the hate coming from the sort of people who will
insist to you, quite seriously, that they have essentially purged all primitive
and dark emotion from themselves and now exist on an elevated Oprah/Chopra
plane of pidgin Zen harmony and balance... Likewise this sort of thing -- the "taking
delight" or laughing at some kind of human flaw or sin -- is of such a de
minimis or venial nature that I wonder if we overconcern ourselves with
this sort of thing in order to avoid thinking too much about more serious
things. See, it's a prophesy because you can see people gloating already on this here thread... one that had been completely and blessedly free of such until they showed up.

I think I've finally settled into LIB mode, though I agree with others that there is no guarantee of glorious rebirth from the ashes. However, if we do burn and rise above, it is very important that we (conservatives, the Austrian school, what have you) write the history books, to tell the story of what really happened.

We're all still waiting for a politician to make the argument that once you've earned the money, what you do with it later is your own business. It will be a long wait. In my opinion, capital gains, dividend taxes, and the estate tax are all wrong, in both a fiscal and moral sense. So long as envy is the mood of the day, the above is a long time coming.

709 In a rare bit of good news these days, I've just noticed that my house "price" has been inflated to match my debt. Break even has occurred.

Posted by: Blanco Basura at December 01, 2012 02:59 AM (xKC/c)

710 One of the many, many things I'm concerned about these days is that the libs in California have had a burr under their saddle for Proposition 13 since it passed in 1978.



Simply put, Prop 13 said that property taxes were limited to 1% (plus fudging) of the last purchase price, increased by some minimal, below-inflation amount since the sale. It means that governments here have only partially been able to benefit from the huge increases in property values since 1978.



Now, for the first time since it passed, the Dems have supermajorities in both chambers of the California legislature. Unfortunately, you have to be an old fart to remember the reign of terror that pre-1978 homeowners faced -- I was but a lad of 16 when Prop 13 passed.



The problem is that property taxes ARE taxes on wealth -- not income. So if you're just scraping by and the state thinks you're "rich enough", they can hike the property tax and take a bigger bite. And if you don't pay, they seize your home -- which is typically the biggest asset in a household.



Besides which, you pay property taxes even if you don't live here. There is lots of Asian money coming into California real estate -- and buying rental homes, second homes, getaway condos.....which is keeping the market buoyed up. Having stable, reliable property tax rates is a major draw -- helping to counteract the huge number of foreclosures and underwater mortgages in this state. What happens when those opposing forces decide to join on the downside?

The CA real estate market collapses, and the rates go up and up as the revenue goes down, down, down. That is until the state decides to peg the "value" of a piece of property to some number that it was closer to when they decided to start raping everyone.

Then the state will become the largest property holder as it forecloses on home after home from people that either can no longer afford the taxes or people who have bailed because they couldn't sell their place anyways, again because of the taxes.

Or not.

731 And, BTW, on the subject of embryonic stem cells.....



That was one part of the development of my serious aversion to "lib science". So, the deal is, you've got these stem cells -- and just like the stems of a plant, you can get branches. Stem cells can continuously produce other cells, which can end up as heart muscle cells, nerve cells, liver cells, whatever -- you just gotta steer 'em right. So they can do all sorts of "magic" things -- in fact, a fertilized ovum is the ultimate "stem cell" because it can make all the cells in a functional human.



Every cell you have has all the DNA to be that first, basic stem cell. You could, in theory, reconstruct an entire person from any cell in your body (BTW, I have doubts about this in that I suspect that "being human" is not just nuclear DNA but also the related microbiome). The problem is, most of the cells in your body have been "trained" to be something else -- a skin cell, a muscle, an organ. So there's two ways of getting "pluripotent" (that which can be anything) stem cells -- grab an embryo that hasn't become anything yet, or reverse the training.



And here's the most important thing about this.....if you start with an embryo, you will get something to be transplanted -- that will have the usual issues of transplant rejection and you will have to be on anti-immune drugs for life....because it will have foreign DNA. But if you revert your own cells to stem cells and go forward from there, there is no transplant rejection and you can go forward as if it were internally developed by your own body.




In 2004, the State of California -- for entirely political reasons, mostly related to rubbing bloody aborted fetuses in the face of the GOP -- placed a $3 billion dollar bet on embryonic stem cells with Proposition 71. A more noxious mixture of stupidity and spite could scarcely be imagined. Essentially, it was also a bet AGAINST regressed cells -- because the final result of regressed cells was always going to be infinitely superior in application.




Now, the thing is -- if it had only gone so far as to say, "we'll work on embryonic stem cells to bootstrap applications, but we'll work with regressed stem cells on the production side", it might have made some sense -- and if it didn't commit the state to $3B in general-obligation bonds, it might not have been such a boondoggle -- but it put funds the state didn't presently have on a big bet for the roulette wheel to come up purple.

There's a lot of stuff in biochemistry that is currently understood at a "this does that" level where there are indications that a more ecological understanding is appropriate. There is a ton of "dark DNA" for instance -- and recent articles about it modulating mapped DNA. And there is evidence that the microbiome can modulate human nuclear DNA -- which leads one to suspect that human nuclear DNA might modulate the microbiome....and then, where the hell are you?

I'm kind of thinking that the human microbiome and nuclear structure are like DJ's swapping mixtapes. "Yo, check this protein!"

746 For those interested, our cells have little constructions in them called "mitochondria" which handle the conversion of glucose and other fuels into ATP, which cells use for energy. Pretty much all of our cells have them -- it's helpful to have a power-plant when you need to get stuff done.




They also appear to be an infection. They have their own DNA (passed on maternally, instead of in human DNA) which is closely related to bacterial DNA. They have their own structure. They roam, fully-formed, inside human cells.



It's been going on for a long, long while. Plants have mitochondria, as well as all animals. Evolution decided to "sub out" energy management before it decided to produce roots and stems.

755 The BH was watching "The Family Man" on TV. She thought of it as a chick-flick sort of thing -- I didn't watch it, really, but found it intensely depressing. It tried to salvage the relationship after a "with/without" switch, but left the souls of their two kids hanging. And the more the movie described the kids, the worse the tragedy.




We don't have kids, but we have godkids......and we've discovered that they are their own people from a very young age. One kid can't be substituted for another. And, yet, at the end of the film, there's a detailed description of the kids that were in the alternate universe....when ejaculation deferred by a millisecond might have produced someone else. The kids in the alternate universe are gone.



The happy family in the alternate life had extra years and lucky rolls of the genetic dice -- the "maybe things will work out" ending in no way compensates for that.

Toyota quality has plummeted. I took my car in for regular service, and it came back with a broken sun visor hanging in your face. The dealer didn't want to fix it even though it happened on their watch.

OK, I have full warranty, but that would cost 100 bucks and was pissed.

On the cell phone with some pissant manager who didn't get the issue, screamed about their quality etc. Finally dipshit gets Toyota corporate to pay for the sun visor.

Funniest part was one of the staff I yelled at for 15 minutes didn't recognize me when I came back the next day...seriously?

813 The 1965 immigration act changed the nature of who we would favor in immigration to the US and thus the nature of the United States

We turned a system that was geared to high skilled mostly white immigrants from Europe to poorly educated, low skilled immigrants from third world shit holes.

We went from favoring places like:

England, Ireland, Germany France, Poland, Canada, etc

To favoring shitholes like:

Mexico, China, India, Phillipines,Vietnam, El Salvador, Korea, Dominican
Republic, Guatemala etc.

The white population of the US has gone from 85% to 72% since 1965 this is an ongoing disaster for the US as these immigrants are not coming here and becoming Americans and are instead joining with the democrats to turn our country into a version of the socialist countries that they have fled.

814 U.N. ban? Why would any country in it's right mind worry about a ban from the U.N. You go on, you Norks! Launch that missle! Stuff the U.N.! I think I am beginning to love the Norks, even though they are Communist lunatics. Anyone who hates the U.N. is my aly of convenience. Make Obuma kiss your boots!

823 My ex-brother-in-law drank about a liter or two of golden grain everyday for the last two years, Why I do not know, he recently died at 40 found dead in bed by his 85 year old mother. The effects were so severe the EMT thought he was his mother's husband he looked 90 years old. Cremation, no funeral no memorial he just disappeared into that bottle and left this world with a hole like the one left in a bucket of water when you pull your finger out.

I don't buy Chevrolet's, I had an S-10 that kept going back into the Chevy places shop for a bad starter which they replaced parts free each of the three times but I had to pay $150.00 labor. Last time I took it to an auto mechanic not affiliated with GMC/Chevy and he fixed the problem for $25.00 it was a bad ground at the battery, something Chevy should have found the first trip to the shop.
Chevrolet and GMC and it's dealers are thieves and totally untrust worthy I'll never buy another GM or Chevy product even a used one.

824 @16. My brother went to tech school to be a mechanic. After training, he went to work for a Honda dealer as a trainee. He said that the service department was rotten to the core, from the service writers to the mechanics.

He would work on a car (that the senior mechanic got paid for, while sitting on his ass). My brother would come to him for guidance, and be told to check off the work as finished, even when it wasn't. Many times, he would look at a part that had to be replaced, and it would be functioning perfectly. Other times, scheduled maintenance was never done, but charged to the customer.

He quit, and went through two or three other dealerships before finding one that was honest (a Lincoln Mercury shop). They unfortunately went out of business, so he opened his own shop.

Ughhh. Now I have to go back and re-read the Tassafaronga thread to clean my brain. Our society is truly fucked if there are 12.4 million Bronys out there.
