Overnight Open Thread (12-13-2012)

How Emotional Are Countries?

Well a recent international Gallup poll attempted to answer this question.

emotional-map2-625x341

The least emotional country in the world (at least according to self-reports) is Singapore - where only 36% of Singaporeans reported feeling any positive or negative emotions on a daily basis.

The Philippines, El Salvador and Bahrain were the most emotional countries with a large majority of the population experiencing emotions every day.

But having emotions doesn't mean they're necessarily fun ones or that they bring happiness:

In the Philippines - which ranked as the world's most emotional society, followed by El Salvador and Bahrain - analysts were quick to point out that being emotional doesn't necessarily equate with being happy. One reporter at GMA News stressed that the nation ranked 103rd out of 155 countries in the 2012 World Happiness Report - and that its 95 million inhabitants are said to be the most depressed in all of south-east Asia.

In fact the Danes are considered rather cool and unemotional yet have the highest consistent  levels of happiness in the world:

Danes have more subdued, but more consistent, levels of positive affect as compared to Americans (Biswas-Diener et al., 2010). Although there should be little to no difference cross-culturally on intrinsic personality types such as introversion or extroversion, personality traits such as optimism and self-esteem are usually a product of one's environment, upbringing , and social groups.

There is little data on personality types of Danes; however, there exists data that suggests that Danes report more moderate changes in mood than people in the U.S. This could suggest a different, less emotional personality type for Danish people compared to Americans.

And how are Americans different? Well we go to 11... and sometimes -1:

In the U.S., people feel stronger feelings of positive emotions and have higher positive and the corresponding negative affect. I believe that this a contributing factor to higher levels of unhappiness.

Due to this, it seems that people from the U.S. are much more prone to having more peak experiences-more intense feelings of joy and excitement as well as anger and excitement.

Well I like to consider this just a side-effect of us having a bit too much joie de vive in our bloodstream which tends to convert over into a certain exuberant restlessness. Alcohol, boredom, and open spaces seem to help this process along.

Why Don't Americans Blame Someone for Bad Government?

Steve Teles has described our current system of government as a kludgeocracy - complex hacked kludges on top of more pieced together kludges. Most Americans agree it's too complex and inefficient yet can't quite identify who's at fault. The kludgeocracy seems to just grow on its own with no one in particular being responsible for it.

While liberals are harmed by the opacity of kludgeocracy's successes, conservatives are hurt by the lack of traceability of its failures. The fact that so much of our welfare state is jointly administered - either inter-governmentally or through contracting with private agents - makes it hard for Americans to attribute responsibility when things go wrong, thus leading blame to be spread over government in general, rather than affixed precisely, where such blame could do some good. The consequence of complexity, then, is diffuse cynicism, which is the opposite of the habit needed for good democratic citizenship.

...The last thirty years of American history have witnessed, at least rhetorically, a battle over the size of government.1 Yet that is not what the history books will say the next thirty years of American politics were about. With the frontiers of the state roughly fixed, the issues that will dominate American politics going forward will concern the complexity of government, rather than its sheer size.

CA Department of Education Fights School District for Daring to Spend Money on Children's Education

It used to be that whenever a man did something completely out of character or scandalous, people would refer to the saying 'Cherchez la femme' - look for the woman. Well perhaps this needs to be updated to a modern form: Whenever an organization does something utterly idiotic and against its own chartered purpose, cherchez la union.

Short answer: Yes.

What Happens When Your Parents Adopt A Murderer?

In 1984, in the quiet and modestly affluent suburb of Cape St. Clair, Maryland, a 17-year-old boy named Larry Swartz murdered both of his adoptive parents. In 1993, after serving nine years of his 12-year sentence, Larry was released from prison and came to live with us.

The reasons are never made clear in the article but I suspect the father really, really wanted a son - even a murdering one.

The Worst Movie Girlfriends of All Time

Jonah Goldberg starts the ball rolling by nominating Bruce Willis' girlfriend from Pulp Fiction:

Over on Twitter I started a conversation about bad girlfriends in movies, by noting that Bruce Willis's gal pal in Pulp Fiction is simply awful and deserves to be on any top-ten list of worst movie girlfriends. She forgets his watch. Cries at the drop of a hat. Goes off to a lavish breakfast while Willis is risking his life. Etc. This sparked other suggestions and a short-lived hashtag game #WorstMovieGirlfriends.

The Burger So Hot You Have To Sign a Waiver Before Eating It

When you have to wear gloves because you might get chemical burns from a spicy burger, maybe you've taken it a little too far.

Just one in ten of the 500 people who've taken the challenge have completed it so far, with Mr Bunce admitting he could only manage a quarter of the burger.

He added: 'We did a four-week special of the Fallout Challenge, but after the special came to an end we had so many people asking to do it, it ended up becoming a permanent fixture on our menu.

'The sauce in the burger contains a variety of chillies including the Ghost Chilli and the Scotch Bonnet. But what gives the sauce a real kick is the Ghost Chilli extract which registers at 4.2 million Scoville units.

Posted by: Peaches at December 13, 2012 10:37 PM (kpCLl)

23 I know this is a long post, and at the risk of the barrel, I'm just gonna go ahead and risk it.

I saw an article today that posited that: "Government spending is equal to our taxation". The tax rates, whatever they may be, are nothing more than a freak show, sideline attraction. It makes no difference if our top rate is 35% or 40%, if we spend twice the revenue collected. The dirty little secret on marginal rates and revenue is that no matter where rates are, revenue will depend on the GDP. AND NOTHING ELSE. Every economist worth his salt, from Andrew Mellon to Art Laffer, has told us repeatedly, that NO MATTER WHAT the marginal RATES ARE, OR HOW they are graduated, REVENUE to the federal government WILL ALWAYS BE between 18-21% of GDP.

There is no tooth fairy, Santa Clause, Wizard, nor even a Socialist from Chicago who will be capable of making up the difference. Not this year. Not ever. What isn't covered through income tax revenue will be paid, by us in some other fashion.

Debt will mount, we will suffer a loss of purchasing power due to currency devaluation and inflation, new excises will be added, or what-ever. But one thing is certain, unless the US defaults, IT WILL BE PAID - BY ALL OF US.

Using lofty words to obscure tawdry realities referring to the Federal Reserve's creation of hundreds of billions of new fiat dollars out of thin air as "quantitative easing" makes it seem as if this is some soothing and esoteric process, rather than amounting essentially to nothing more than - SIMPLY PRINTING MORE MONEY. Debasing the value of money by creating more of it is nothing new or esoteric. Irresponsible governments have always done this...Check out the Weimar Republic or Zimbawbe for perspective.

It is a way to take people's wealth from them without having to openly raise taxes. If you have $100 and, after inflation follows from "quantitative easing," that $100 dollars will only buy what $80 bought before, then that is the same economically as if the government had taxed away one-fifth of your money and spent it.

But it is not the same POLITICALLY, so long as gullible people - the LIV sheeple - don't look beyond words to the reality that inflation taxes everybody, the poorest as well as the richest.

So they can say we are going to "soak the rich", and consequently drive GDP down, but that will not help anyone in the slightest. All the "pretty talk" about how tax rates will be raised only on "the rich" hides the ugly fact that the poorest people in the country will see the value of their money decline, just like everybody else, and at the same rate as everybody else, when the government creates ever more money and spends it.

Inflation is the most universal tax of all...
Thanks. Fuckers!

66 I've been watching a bunch of hunting shows lately. Not a hunter and never watched these shows before. But I figured I might learn something.

Am I wrong or are these shows mainly just giant ads for equipment and hunting lodges? The host always talks a lot about his gun or bow and knife and sights and other assorted gear, always makes sure to call it by the brand name, and always mentions the lodge or preserve or wherever he's hunting a lot.

Seen a couple of the fishing shows, too, and seems to be the same thing there.

88 Re: Movie Girlfriends:

Ben Stiller's girlfriend in Meet the Parents.

She takes him to meet her parents and friends. During the entire time she never defends him, doesn't think twice about putting him in situations where he'll be the butt of jokes, doesn't give a second thought to whether he's enjoying anything, and apparently doesn't speak to anybody over the phone beforehand to make sure things go smoothly and they don't constantly embarrass the guy.

Worst movie girlfriend:



I don't remember the names, but I'd say the girlfriend the guy was
on the phone with towards the end of Goodfellas, while the helicopter
was circling.



He was yelling at her for blabbing about drugs and not maintaining proper opsec.



I once knew a girl like that, not to put too fine a point on it. It
got to the point that I would cringe every time she called me.

Posted by: rickl at December 13, 2012 10:44 PM

The girl "Lois" wasn't his girlfriend, she was the family babysitter who also worked for them as a drug courier. He told her not to use the house phone and she uses it anyway.

94 The DoJ thing Holder signed is so they can do data-mining to spot signs of potential criminality.

I'm not joking. The problem is how to stop lone wolf style attacks of bad guys who aren't on the radar. Like that Norway pycho.

The answer is massive surveillance of, literally, everyone. The DoJ thing is so all the data on every interaction every citizen has with any agency of local, state, or federal govt can be fed into the cloud and be data-mined to spot patterns predictive of criminal or terrorist activity.

Upside is you can catch lone wolf pyschos better.
Downside is the Orwellian surveillance society raping everyone's privacy and the occasional false positive that destroys the lives of innocent citizens.

Hold off, Yankees pay more, advertise it. Sounds like a sweet gun, the 16ga part is the only draw back, 16 ga shells are starting to cost the same as 28's because there is not enough demand.

KC and St. Louis both have man made ski areas with large hills. Our St. Louis "resort" just redid the lodge and added new runs. It's pretty cool and close and cheap. I plan on keeping our skis on my roof rack the whole winter, and going straight from carpool 20 minutes to the lift!

It's like the whole, you can't get good pizza outside of NY thing. it's the water or something. it just doesn't translate, imo.

336 chemjeff.

I just use the main twitter page. I have friends who use apps. But I just go straight to the main page.

When you are on someone's profile. Next to the follow button (just to the left) is a silhouette of a head and a down arrow. Click on that and you get option to block or report the person -- or add or remove them from a list.

The add or remove from list window pops up and at the bottom of your list of lists is a "create a list" button.

I have dozen or so lists. NCAA, UFC, NHL, politics, energy news, tech news, stuff like that.

That way all my subjects aren't all mixed together.

When I'm watching a UFC fight I open my UFC list and I get UFC related tweets.

I tend not to follow random people so much as media people. So I follow UFC reporters that I know are trying to get behind the scenes info. I also follow Dana White (UFC pres) on that list.

My friends just have everyone they follow all mixed together on the main page. I find that confusing.

344 re: 'Nancy from "Sid and Nancy"...'

Was gonna say.

She's the worst movie girlfriend who's a plausible character. These other ones are all Movie Girlfriends. And the ones in Tarantino are intentionally so; he does Characters, not characters. But there's a factory somewhere out here in real life that builds a Nancy for every guy who owns a guitar.

"OH COME NOW oblig., I'm a musician and nobody I know ever--"

Standard distribution applies. You get none, and that poser you "can't understand why women don't see through" gets two hundred.

speaking of Bailey's, does Hagen Daas still do their seasonal bailey's flavored ice cream? OMG!

and biscotti flavored Bailey's? I can't even understand what that would taste like. biscotti are distinctive for their texture, not their taste. Are they going to make a crunchy drink? Now I have to get some. dammit!

No, you cook them twice. First you form the dough into a two inch thick rectangle, then you take them out, slice them into biscotti shapes, lay them out and bake them again.

They are not hard to make, but like I said, you have to be careful not to overwork the dough or they can get tough.

--Just nasty. Has to be an illustration in the dictionary for the (adjective) entry for "ghetto." One problem with some restaurants is that a lot of them don't even have space in either men's or women's bathrooms, never mind changing tables, to do the deed. Sometimes the changing tables are in a stal, which may be occupied. Under some circumstances, like when flying, it's *always* easier to change on the spot rather than go to the bathroom --at least for #1.

430 i heard that. it was someone with a previous criminal record who recruited some buddies in jail.

he insisted that they strangle Bieber with a paisley tie.

****

A guy in prison for the rape and murder of a 15 year old develops an obsession with Bieber. He has his image tattooed on his leg.

So, he's in prison with an idiot who agrees to kill two of the nutjob's past associates, using a paisley tie, his signature move. Said idiot recruits his nephew to assist. In addition to killing the associates, they are to kidnap, castrate, and murder Bieber.

In the end, it was the obsessed nutjob who blew the whistle.

My guess is that he never intended for Bieber to be killed and was possibly setting up the two to commit crimes similar enough to his own to set up a defense. But I could be completely wrong.

Either way, very 'Copycat' of them.

One positive could have come from it. I was with the news anchor of the radio station that I had just gone to work at, and she was smoking hot, the same age as me and very single. But she was very much a fitness fanatic, so when I only took a couple of bites of the pizza then threw it away, she was impressed because she had her back to the diaper change. For the next several years she always wanted me to go with her when she was out doing appearances, but being a dumbass, I thought she just thought of me as a friend. I later found out she was very interested, but by that time we were both married. So we remained friends.
Did I mention she was a fitness fanatic? An ass you could bounce a quarter off of. She also got me to go do aerobics with her. She looked very nice in her aerobics gear, very nice.

I've generally found that a lot of people use the term "creationism" to mean something that creationists I've known don't understand it to mean. I know plenty of non-creationists who understand the term "creation" in different ways, so why not suppose the same holds among creationsts and not tar them all with the same brush?

Anything involving such deep matters of definition and relationship among various terms at the root of theology and philosophy of science is generally not going to be very simple to explain at first.

Besides, how many people who are non-creationists are just as kneejerk, authority-argument-users as they claim all creationists are? I'll bet there's a lot who don't know their science all that well, but they think they're smarter and more scientific merely for accepting the "smart" position of scientists. That may be more of perversion of science than what some popular creationists are dishing out.

I think I'm thinking of some other movie with Kevin Costner that had the same thing as Field of Dreams. I tend to zone out when I hear Kevin Costner. Was he in the Notebook? hmmm, search engines, how do they work?

Here is an e-mail I just Sent Speaker Boehner:

Dear Speaker Boehner,
Enough with the closed door meetings on fiscal cliff negotiations. Where is the transperancy? I demand that these discussions find the sanity of sunlight! I have been a contributor to Republicans and most specifically congressional Republicans that allow you to hold the position that you hold today, and I want nothing in return except for honesty, integrity and limited government from my elected officials, and neither my President, the Senate Majority Leader,...nor you, sir, seem to provide any of those qualities. And it is with a heavy heart that I see what is happening to our country, and see the side that is supposed to be on my side act scared of losing in future elections instead of what they should be scared of which is losing the greatest country the world has ever known. The bottom line is that the federal government cannot sustain the current spending rates and my son should not be burdened with unaccountable debt but should instead only be burdened with that of any 2-year-old of laughing and playing and loving and growing. Which side are you on!

Ah...Teilhard. Yeah, I sort of know his work. I don't think he's anything like contemporary creationists. Very dated, Very French, and very misunderstood...probably more so now because he's been picked up by lots of New Age-y, Gaia/Living Earth types.

His deal is less with creation and more with the causes and meaning of evolution. He was a serious archaeologist/anthropologist in his regular work, and I gather he knew that his theories were very speculative. In particular, he was trying to build up some intellectual models for what consciousness is, and to try to tie that into evolution according to some notion of hierarchies of consciousness and the physical interaction of biological units. Very interesting thought experiments of the type that are valuable and necessary when forging new concepts in science...but then someone else comes along and starts treating it as gospel truth, and then you have problems.

"Take, for example, this quote translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper Prager Zeitungon:




The
danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of
entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to
limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the
necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate
willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much
deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of
what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind
anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The
Republic can survive a Barack Obama
, who is, after all, merely a fool.
It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who
made him their president

635 I have no desire to go back to living in a 19th century world, and hold no survivalist fantasies. Socialism always fails, it is unsustainable. Seems to me like hiding out in a dark hut is pretty much exactly what the enviro-wheenies want - I guess that's the wraparound effect of extremism. A return to that lifestyle would also necessarily result in a return to those population levels - I can't see that being a good thing. To me, let it burn means accepting reality, that our position has lost this argument, for now, and the majority of Americans are very comfortable with socialism, and believe that it is morally superior to capitalism. This won't change until they experience the pain, the loss of liberty, the stifling control, and this will take time - hopefully not bloodshed. Meanwhile, we can live, love, laugh, create, engage in the culture, fight back against the institutions to the extent we are able, and be there to fix it later. Call it a fighting retreat. Complete withdrawal is not an option, at least for me, as tempting as it sounds. The sooner the collapse comes, they sooner the lesson will be learned - the difficulty is the lesson cannot be learned without the pain, and that is a position one can never sell to an electorate, so, let it burn, and take care of your own. Not going to score many points with the "compassion" crowd there, but we have ample proof that is a one-way street anyway.

Someday, free men will fight for liberty again, but it may not be here.

Damned if I know. My backlog spans multiple console generations. Like a junkie I picked up about 40 new games that were down around $10 on BF or since due to deals.But my play of recent titles is so light I'm relegated tot he casual category on that qualification.

At an educated guess I'd say Batman: Arkham City in terms of content value. I passed on both the GOTY versions of Uncharted 2 and 3 in favor of getting the regular ones real cheap because I discovered that pretty all of the added content was for multiplayer. Which would be completely wasted on me.

I just saw two meteors in the first five minutes of watching. I saw the first one out of the corner of my eye and the second one just a few minutes later in the same spot. Tonight's shower was different from ones I've seen in the past -- instead of the meteors arcing across the sky they looked as if they were dropping straight down out of it.

Having spent hours to see two meteors during better showers (Perseids) I figured I could spend two more hours in the 28 degree weather just to maybe see one more, so after five more minutes I packed it in for a warm cozy couch and the TV. I can't say I was disappointed, however.

Time to watch the rigged Storage Wars show or better yet The First 48 Hours until my Dad wanders out and I have to empty his catheter bag.

703 Re - (no la-sol) "Edelweiss", Mark Steyn mentions the following:

Hammerstein's very last lyric,"Edelweiss" from The Sound of Music,
is invariably assumed to be a real Austrian folk song--indeed, a few
years back, the White House went further, playing it at a state banquet
for the Austrian president, under the impression that it was the
country's national anthem.


Funny.

It's shaped like you'd think a mouse would be shaped, except that it flares to this weird Alien/Prometheus skirt at desk level, like it's trying to bond with your desk. Underneath, this has been used to augment the size of the skid pads (which is good), but it's kind-o'-freaky.




It gives it an odd sense of immensity which you might think was contraindicated in a quick pointing device.

711 Worst movie girlfriend?

No contest:

General Waverly's girlfriend in White Christmas - Emma the housekeeper.

She listened in on a partial phone conversation between Bob Wallace and Ed Harrison and misconstrued Wallace's intentions in regards to helping General Waverly through a particularly tough run of business for the lodge in Pine Tree Vermont.

Emma then proceeded to tell Bob's girlfriend her interpretation of Bob's plan, thereby causing Betty Haines to become the second worst girlfriend in movie history.

Then it all ends well and no one bothers to mention how Emma's snooping almost brought down one of the most powerful entertainment duos on the Florida musical review circuit. It was a total bullshit move by Emma. (played by Mary Wickes)


C'mon. You know Waverly was boning her.

718 Well just returned from seeing The Hobbit. Overall it worked. Did not go see the 3D version, just 2D thank you. Of the almost three hour run time, if we trimmed the sweeping camera shots to show off 3D and some of the battle footage I feel another 15 minutes could have been removed with none the wiser. Some of the running battle shots are filler to show what can be done in the computers.

The worse part of the movie was it ended. See a thrush fly off to the Lonely Mountain. It lands there and starts trying to crack a nut. This sound reverberates down into the Dwarven halls. Where it awakens Smaug who turns his head, gold cascades off, and his eye opens. Then the credits roll.

I could have been down for another 2.5 to 3 hours to finish the bleeping movie. Instead the credits rolled.

732 Famed special effects wizard Douglas Trumbull decided theatrical presentation needed an upgrade and started a series of experiments on biometric monitoring of audience viewing test footage. He found that increasing frame rates over 'sound speed' aka 24 FPS, had the greatest effect on the visceral quality, closely followed by the size of the frame. Anything above 72 FPS was found to have added effect and even that triple frame rate presented a major expense issue.

Rather than require 70 mm, due to the need to reduce cost, Trumbull's Showscan system used 65 mm celluloid at 48 FPS for capture and playback of the image. Trumbull then came up with a screenplay concept about replaying the experiences of one person into the mind of another. This would provide an excuse to have a movie packed with spectacular visual action sequences while being more than just a clip show. The story was given the title Brainstorm and went into production with Christopher Walken and Natalie Wood in the lead roles.

The production was almost lost entirely when the actress died suddenly by drowning under odd circumstances. Her scenes were only about 90% completed and the cloud hanging over the production meant that the studio was no longer willing to back the expensive proposition of Showscan as this meant equipping new projection systems in select theaters and a substantially higher cost per print than the typical release. The movie was completed with Natalie Wood being replaced by a stand-in who was mostly shot from behind to avoid showing her face. Some scenes were cut entirely. The movie was eventually released in conventional format after much delay.

Showscan languished without a showpiece to create audience awareness and build demand for further productions. It was mainly used in motion simulator rides in LBE (location based entertainment) venues in Las Vegas and other tourist destinations. The company got a special technical Oscar in 1993 and went through bankruptcy in 2002. Another company bought up the asset and is trying to promote a new digital standard today. James Cameron has announced his intention to have the Avatar sequels presented in either 48 or 60 FPS.

There you have it. What could have been one of the great innovations in theatrical films was derailed by the death of a single woman not directly involved with the technology.

752 Since I don't see any documentation of what markup is allowed in comments, I am posting this as a test to see what works and what doesn't. You don't care so ignore this post.

[/b/] for bold: This is bold.
[/i/] for italic: This is italic.
[/u/] for underline: This is underlined.

[/u/r/l/] for URLs: Link to BBCode on Wikipedia: [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBCode[/url]

[/u/r/l/=] for embedded links: [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBCode]Link to BBCode on Wikipedia[/url]

Does backslash work to turn off the [ character?

This is \not italic\.

758 Now I'm not sure there even is a way to post a URL as a clickable link. Oh well, we'll all survive somehow.

P.S. an FAQ describing the permitted markup codes would be a good thing.
