Super-Car Performance Over Time

A collection of charts from Car and Driver showing how top of the line cars have gotten better over the years.

Today you can walk in practically any dealership and (with enough money) pick up a car that would blow away almost racing car circa 1962 i.e. this Ferrari 250 GT.

From Fiat Money to Fiat Power

Democrat leaders in the Senate and House assert that Obama has the power to unilaterally raise the US debt ceiling:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has reportedly told President Barack Obama that he would back the president overriding congressional authority and unilaterally raising the debt ceiling.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was more forceful: "I've made my view very clear on that subject: I would do it in a second. But I'm not the president of the United States."

And if Obama agrees with them, next step is fiat government by assertion of authority.

Gun Control by Fiat

Your semi-automatic gun might just become the same as a machine gun:

If new gun control measures don't pass the Senate and House, the game is far from over.  The Obama administration is investigating the possibility of executive orders reclassifying semi-automatic firearms as title 2 weapons, thus doing by fiat what the legislative branch rejected.  The fight will continue, just in a different locale than the Senate and House.

According to wikipedia this would make them all subject to NFA rules:

Title II of the Gun Control Act of 1968 is a revision of the National Firearms Act of 1934, and pertains to machine guns, short or "sawed-off" shotguns and rifles, and so-called "destructive devices" (including grenades, mortars, rocket launchers, large projectiles, and other heavy ordnance). Acquisition of these weapons is subject to prior approval of the Attorney General, and federal registration is required for possession. Generally, a $200 tax is imposed upon each transfer or making of any Title II weapon.

Advances in Betting: Gambling on When Terminal Cancer Patients Will Die

Families of terminally ill patients are making bets to predict the date their relatives will die.
The punters are wagering on a macabre game which has sprung up in Taiwan.
According to China Press, senior citizens' clubs have set up more than 10 gaming houses in Taizhong City as the bizarre trend has taken off.
Gamblers - including cancer patients' family members and even the doctors - have lodged NT$100m (£2.1m) with bookies.
It is reported that those who want to take part in the game have to pay a membership fee of NT$2,000 (£43) to the bookies.

The bookies then visit hospitals to seek permission from the patients' family.
Then they take the punters to the hospital on their next visit to observe the patients.
According to the rules, the bookies win if the cancer patients die within a month.
However, if they die between one and six months after the bets were placed, the gamblers would be paid three times their wager.

Want Your Husband to Lose Weight?

Science says to nag him:

When it comes to the challenge of losing weight, there's nothing like having the backing and support of a loving partner.

But it turns out the best way for a wife to persuade her husband to shed a few pounds may be to nag him about it as well.

Research shows some men are much more likely to lose weight if their other halves criticise, confront and reject them, rather than offer sugar-coated encouragement.

American researchers who studied how couples support each other in the battle of the bulge found men who lacked motivation to diet and exercise got much  better results if their wives gave them a hard time over it. But the same approach does not work for women, it appears.

And guys - for just $9.99 a month I can make sure your wife never sees this article.

Here Comes Hillbilly Pron

Apparently it's a thang now:

It's official. The phenomenon which is "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" has infiltrated every last crevice of our psyche. Including our sex lives. Boo Boo and other "redneck" reality shows like "Duck Dynasty," "Bayou Billionaires" and "Swamp People" are causing an obsession with "hillbilly porn." Adult website Gamelink.com confirms that there has been a 250 percent increase in titles like "Hillbilly Honeys," "Real White Trash," and "Ozark Sex Fiend" since 2010.

31 Over at Zerohedge, this is brilliant:


Put Me In Charge...







Put me in charge of food stamps. Id get rid of Lone
Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Hos, just money for 50-pound
bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you
can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.


Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing Id do
is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal ligations.
Then, well test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.


Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in
a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good
state of repair. Your home will be subject to inspections anytime and
possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.


In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each
week or you will report to a government job. It may be cleaning the
roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we
find for you. We will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and
your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the common
good..



Before you write that Ive violated someones rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules.
Before you say that this would be demeaning and ruin their self
esteem, consider that it wasnt that long ago that taking someone
elses money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self
esteem.


If we are expected to pay for other peoples mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.


AND While you are on Govt subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes,
that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You
will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a
Govt welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.
f'n brilliant IMHO

Yep. I ignored them for a while, then read through one waiting somewhere, I checked the cover to make sure I had the right magazine *three times*.

I thought it must have been an April Fools edition, no such luck.

Who's left in that world? Is it all specialty magazines? I check the "compact/import" stuff sometimes because I have an RX-7 and they do keep developing a lot of toys/techniques. Motor Trend was always for people who wear sweater vests, I haven't checked R&T or Automobile lately.

41 Socialized Healthcare: Accelerated Deaths

The march of the butchers in socialized medicine continues unabated in Europe. France is considering allowing doctors to accelerate the coming of death. Not only would they allow patients to refuse treatment and allow doctors to administer painkilling drugs that have a secondary effect of shortening a patients life, which would be consistent with a patient having control over their own lives and bodies, as well as allow family members make the decision for an unconscious dying loved one, but allow doctors to withdraw treatment if that treatment is just keeping the patient alive. Considering the penchant of some European doctors of harvesting organs of recovering patients whom they deem braindead, this should be of great concern for Europeans who care for their loved ones very survival.

Senator Dianne Feinstein,

I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the governments right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You maam have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.

I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America. I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.

I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.

We, the people, deserve better than you.

100 Pakistan:
A new Pakistan Army doctrinal handbook identifies, for the first time,
that a priority Pakistan Army mission is suppression of internal threats
to the government of Pakistan. In the so-called "green book" the
internal threat has higher priority than the Indian threat, for the
first time in Pakistan's history. Comment:
The Kashmir incident this weekend conveys that the new Pakistan Army
concentration on internal threats does not signify reduced vigilance
opposite and/or meddling in Indian Kashmir. On the other hand, this
doctrinal shift represents the first time Pakistan Army planners have
recognized that tribal uprisings in support of a fundamentalist Islamic
theology pose a real and present danger to the constitutional order in
Pakistan. As a result they now are a priority target for the Army.

128 "I'm really starting to worry about the gun stuff."

My own worries have recently accelerated. Quite a bit.

Flash back twenty years. Clinton administration.

We have a family friend. You know how some old line Democrat voters have portraits of FDR and JFK? She has a portrait of Robert A. Taft. Representing her self-styled political views: sound, sober, modest, reliable, common-sense, middle of the road Midwestern Republicanism.

The Clinton types started to talk to voters about banning "assault weapons". Well, this pleasant and well meaning woman didn't know an assault weapon from a emperor penguin. She was on the fence. Convinceable either direction.

What she needed was someone pro-Second-Amendment to calmly explain the issues to her. No, an assault weapon is not a "machine gun", even though the press and Clinton say so. No, there isn't actually any epidemic of assault weapons being used in crime. That sort of thing. Reasoned arguments, politely put. She responds to those.

Instead, another family friend who was in the self-described "patriot militia" movement of the era sent her a bunch of wacko literature. Oh brother. Completely not what was needed or helpful.

It was a bunch of lengthy rants, poorly spelled, about how Clinton was a KGB plant and was going to, after banning assault weapons, then allow UN peacekeepers in black helicopters to invade America, impose the New World Order, make Freemasonry and lesbianism mandatory, and put fluoride in children's ice cream. I may have left some stuff out.

Included in this package of wonderfulness were a bunch of frankly totally bogus scare quotes, including one purporting to be from Sara [sic] Brady, saying that gun confiscations were urgently necessary in order to prevent citizens from resisting the socialist takeover of America.

Uh, WTF? Where did that shit come from?

The audience was not receptive to the message, needless to say. In fact, this woman called up the offices of the Brady Campaign and specifically asked about the scare quote from "Sara Brady".

She got a pleasant, helpful young staffer who told her that no, Sarah Brady had never said anything of the kind. And that Sarah Brady was a sensible, common-sense, sober, responsible, reliable person just like her, one whose family had been turned upside down by horrible gun violence, and could the caller join Sarah in that worthwhile cause?

Guess what? She did. She's poured a shit-ton of money into checks for anti-gun organizations ever since. And has regularly called her political representatives pushing steadily for more and deeper gun control. Because one noisy "pro-gun" and "patriot" clown had convinced her that pro-gun people are utter paranoid nutbags spouting imaginary crap, and who can't be trusted to own guns.

Guess what again? Just the other day, over at Hot Gas, I found some helpful pro-gun type posting a long list of quotes by anti-gun advocates, and what was in there along with the real deal? You guessed it. The very same transparently false quote from "Sara Brady", still reasserting itself in unstoppable zombie fashion two decades down the road. For fuck's sake.

Can all of us on the right please, please learn the basic task of distinguishing between shit and Shinola before we start making public statements? Please?

If Obama unilaterally raises the debt ceiling, is it at this point that Congress could just stop the continuing budget resolutions, and then pass bills one by one directing where the money goes?

So theoretically, each month, the next month's welfare payments could be bundled in bills that eliminate entire government departments (energy, education, EPA) and if Obama and the Democrats want the welfare payments to go through, they have to pass the bills?

I hope that's how it goes down. This, is the last fight.

According to Larry Grathwohl, the FBI informant embedded in Ayer's Weatherman cell, many of the inmates of those camps would be marked for liquidation. Ayers guessed that would mean around 15-25 million people, those 'hardcore capitalists' who could not be 'reeducated'.

Jewells - I had serious incapacitating migraines. The meds of which I had tried many - only made me nauseaous and unable to function. What I ended up doing was - pot. We can argue all day about the legalities, etc. but it worked. The downside was I couldn't smoke it before work - they already think I'm a loon - and I did gain a little weight. But during this period of time it helped me tremendously get through the night.
Of course I'm now a girl scout and a law abiding citizen. Ahem.

171 It's possible that you're among the large number of people who suffer from EDD. No, that isn't a typo -- I don't mean ADD or ED. It's EDD, which stands for "Empathy Deficit Disorder."

I made it up, so you won't find it listed in the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Normal variations of mood and temperament are increasingly redefined as new "disorders," so I'm hesitant to suggest a new one. But this one's real, and it's becoming more pronounced in today's world.

I've identified it from my decades of experience as a business psychologist, psychotherapist and researcher into adult development. From that triple vantage point I've concluded that Empathy Deficit Disorder is a pervasive but overlooked condition. In fact, our increasingly polarized social and political culture of the past few years reveals that EDD is more severe than ever. It has profound consequences for the mental health of both individuals and society. Yet it's ignored as a psychological disturbance by most of my colleagues in the mental health professions.

First, some explanation of what I mean by EDD: When you suffer from it you're unable to step outside yourself and tune in to what other people experience, especially those who feel, think and believe differently from yourself. That makes it a source of personal conflicts, of communication breakdown in intimate relationships, and of adversarial attitudes - including hatred - towards groups of people who differ in their beliefs, traditions or ways of life from your own.

First of all, I'm in agreement with this. There's far too much Loose Shit and Rumormongering, especially on this topic. People can take ten seconds to look something up and just refuse to, and it's maddening.

People Need To Get Their Shit Together.

But I've found it's hard to get people to do that, because A) people are pretty lazy, B) people are inclined to just take anything they agree with for granted, and worst of all, C) the left gets away with it all the time.

I don't really have an argument against the last one except "that's wrong," to which the reply is "it works for them, they're winning."

All I can say is "there's a double standard, they're bigots, and you have to work three times as hard to get to the same place."

And then I say "fuck the MFM with a rusty post-hole digger," which makes them feel a little better.

And then they post the fake Yamamoto quote again the next week. It's an uphill battle.

And then if you correct them *again* they get mad at you.

Hey, maybe people *are* too stupid to be free. The argument against that is they're also too stupid to rule, so we're stuck with it.

195 New guns laws

Remember, national health care may have seemed like a overnight event but the Progressives started over 90 years ago.

Doubtful they'll try a head-on approach to guns. They will put up stupid, grand-standing bills that will be voted down because the Left has had trouble with the direct, fascist approach.

These first bills are misdirection. The broader bills will fail and - wrist to forehead - "woe unto us!" Then they wait for the public to go back to sleep.

Bit and pieces of small anti-gun legislation may pass, not to purposely ban guns and accessories but to catch people making mistakes. The more tiny laws, the more gun-owners in jail and, surprise, unable to ever own a firearm again.

Step 2: the corporatist approach ala Instapundit.

Wrangle insurance co's and get them to gently and quietly turn the screws on owners. The Insurance Co's will also put pressure corporate accounts to make gun-owning employees look like dangerous liabilities.

Gunshops and mfrs will become harassed with nit-picking requests non-stop. Any and all mistakes will turn into legal action. Those in the industry will become targets for the wonderful entrepreneurs of Statism, lawyers. Employment suits, ADA suits, any and all legal harassment will commence.

Bank of America's recent actions will become commonplace.

"Now, Mr. Jones before we give you the papers for the loan, we want to know just one thing ..."

All the while the press will begin turning gun-ownership into a seemly thing, encouraging people to have 'The Discussion' with their gun-owning neighbors and acquaintances.

"We're not comfortable with your guns and your obsession. Please turn them into the police."

Slowly, slowly.

The main advantage of the slow tactic is that there is no clear line-in-the-sand event. It's harder to rally citizens against such a wide-ranging set of small initiatives, particularly when they are not direct actions taken by Congress or the Executive.

What to do? Sue the corporations helping with this campaign? Dismissed. It's private business. Can you prove a link to the Executive? Not convincing enough, Mr. Citizen.

Now and then groups may pop up and respond to these measure kinetically but there won't be enough coordination or public support and they will die. Those sad souls will become the Feds new Public Enemy No. 1. The MSM turns the volume up to 11.

We will be lucky if Left oversteps their bounds early creating a bright red line in the sand. They have done this in the past but there is no guarantee they won't opt for ...

slowly, slowly.

A police report also said a fifth tablet -- described as an iPad4, worth $729 -- was taken as well. But that model does not exist yet. [The police] said it may have been a typo...

223 So since I realized mid first quarter how the game would go, I started perusing my movie channels and stumbled across A Lonely Place to Die on Showtime. Quite good and Melissa George once again kicks ass in it. The plot is that five friends are out in the Scottish Highlands doing a wee bit of mountaineering when they come across a pipe in the ground and hear a girl yelling. Turns out they've stumbled across a little girl who has been buried in the ground and then they get her out and then try to get her down the mountain. Stuff happens from there. Very intense, though the ending doesn't quite live up to the start. I quite enjoyed it though the accents are very Scottish indeed and I had to turn on the closed captioning. I recommend it.


Obligatory Melissa George rec for Triangle. Now there's a movie that plays with what may or may not be time traveling quite well. Once you realize what story is actually being told, it's heartbreaking as well.

The dickhead is a gun enthusiast. In reply to the above, no-one needs a corvette, he said yeah but the kid in CO had a 90 round drum clip and I told him yeah and the damn thing jammed as they are notorious to do, if he had had ten ten round clips he would still be loading and firing. Its not the weapon.
If I had been in that theater he would have been damn busy dealing with the lead coming his way instead of on a sheep shoot, but the theater banned gunsTrying to educate these numbskulls when ever possible we need all men on deck, guess that leaves out the repunks!

Anna - if you have animals keep them inside. My dog got sprayed once and it was awful. I got skunk oil all over my shirt from bathing him but didn't realize it and went to the store to buy cookies for my daughter's class. The smell was overpowering and the store managers and employees went searching for the "skunk" in the store as I stood in line waiting to check out.
Also I don't care what Disney or Warner Bros. say - skunks are mean little critters so keep any kittys inside as well. They will attack and rampage chicken coops like nobody's business.

229 As far as I know all of the conversions are limited to "light Cowboy action loads" except the Blackhawk, which is basically the same frame as the cartridge-firing model. And not cheap.
Posted by: Merovign, Dark Lord of the Sith at January 07, 2013 10:51 PM (bxiXv)

You can use full-power .45 Colt loads in a Kirst-converted Remington revolver--ordinary loads, mind you, not those supercharged Buffalo Bore special loads. You just can't shoot them often, as a range gun. They'll beat the frame to death and shorten the working life of the gun considerably.

With mine, I shoot cowboy loads at the range. I keep it by my bedside loaded with standard .45 Colt.

250 Top Gear USA is crap because the creators and writers don't understand *either* Top Gear UK *or* America.

It's basically people who gloss over what made TGUK popular and view America from media company offices in high-rises in New York or LA or whatever.

TGUK - personal chemistry, humor, political incorrectness, cinematography, music, choreography

America - all of the above modified by practicality and each above item would have a different flavor because of America being America.

We also have a more fragmented audience because you have to cover musclecars and import market as well as exotics and more practical cars.

TGUSA from what little I've seen has mediocre personal chemistry and humor, and the choreography and cinematography is a pale imitation of TGUK, and the music is listless and ill-timed.

The same thing happened with TGAus, btw.

326 IMO the GSX was the best of the Chevelle/442/GSX trio.

But I would totally get a Skylark and fix it up instead, because I would hate to wreck a GSX by replacing all the suspension and engine controls with stuff that works for me.

Maybe even get a Skylark, back- and front-half it to save weight, Corvette suspension, fuel-injected Turbo small-block (LS1), and for crying out loud better seats!

I have a friend who cherishes a mint-condition '68 Mustang with a 302 ci mill. I drove it hard a few months ago and it was terrifying. The brakes were abject crap and you had to fight it to make it turn. You slide back and forth on the seats and the dash is mostly unpadded metal. And this was a highly-regarded car in its day. It's astonishing how miserable and dangerous automobile handling was just 45 years ago.

That's a comedy price.

Go to a classic car auction. Bid on every no-reserve car that due to mysterious mass error/delusion can't break some arbitrary threshold way below its value. Almost every time, you'll break the crowd's madness and send the price up past what you'd pay. But one time, you'll take home an awesome car for a good price.

You can always throw the guy a few extra grand, off the record, if you feel bad about taking the car he first got laid in for $6000.

367 While all the news regarding the SCoaMF's machinations is certainly depressing, I've also been going back and reading "the classics" of political philospohy, &c.

Some good, like Burke, and others more indicative of where we are today.

I'm in the middle of reading Rousseau, and he is basically a cerebral onanist who enjoys talking out his butt.

Rousseau fully believed that all people must submit to "the general will." He is truly the poisoned spring that virtually all great evil over the past quarter millennium has sprung: From the Jabobins in Revolutionary France, to the NAZIs in German or the Soviets in Russia, on to Obama today.

The answer is always "it depends." The RX-8 got better mileage *and* emissions than the 7, with more hp/liter (naturally aspirated), but don't benefit as much from a turbo because they're so tightly tuned (and on a rotary tuning is partly port alignment, and that's not variable).

You have to remember it was invented in 1957. The Otto-cycle engine was invented in 1861. Slight head start.

The latest rotary designs, for models and snowmobiles and hopefully the next generation of Mazda rotaries, is even more improved.

The RX-8 has a specific power output of 183 hp per liter of displacement. Which is nice. Eventually I'd like to play with one of those.

Unfortunately, my doctors are more interested, mostly, in getting me out of the office, or are too far away.

Gah.

Also, the whole rotary efficiency thing, it's a whole other world. Atkins Rotary has been making rotary aircraft engines and has discovered a lot about that, it's a different beast than a piston engine.

70s and 80s racers knew that about the rotaries, they were "most efficient" and durable running 75%+ percent power output - but that doesn't equal fuel efficiency on the street, quite the opposite.

Development would have been faster, I think, if they hadn't been regulated out of so many racing classes.

436 My daughter just graduated from a nursing program. She has previously considered going on to become a nurse practitioner; but first you need 2 works of work history as a practicing nurse.

So that would be goal one if she wants to go to the next step. She takes her state boards in a couple of weeks. Then we shall see how it all shakes out. The NP program takes another 2 years of class/patient time to get to the NP level.

I currently see a NP myself; overall, I rate her willingness to talk plainly with me and thoroughly as a big plus over my old PCP.

I guess in 2014 our business arrangement will be judged 'insufficient' and I'll start facing fines for non-compliance in 2014.

482 Well it' 1 o'clock here and I have a meeting tomorrow with a SEM salesman. Since the meeting includes other engineers I have to at least pretend to ask real questions why his machine is the best. Night All.

483 President of the National Assocation of Police Officers and Boston Police Officer Thomas Nee is a member of Vice President Joe Biden's gun control task force, which was created by President Obama in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Nee's son, Joseph Nee, was convicted in 2008 for planning to commit mass murder of students and teachers at Marshfield High School in Massachusetts, similar to that of Columbine in 1999. After spending nine months in prison, Nee's conviction was upheld by the Supreme Judicial Court.

484 Grace, you're getting away with it
Words, but nothing to say with it
You smile and take what you need in any way that you please

Isn't it a shame you've nothing to show from these lies?
I told you you'd pay for it...

Damn, imagine that, British pop star singing an anti-OWS theme song...

Being a pilot myself I have a lot of respect for those WWI fliers. Piloting an aircraft in an era when many were still probably getting used to the idea of indoor plumbing. Then trying to fight in a flying sewing machine that was just as likely, if not more likely to kill you then the enemy........they must've got so much ass.

Glimbering pulmpousity next to me.
Thy roundolience maketh me sphinctoswirl and lythe!
In loftacious mindoliant erecthyration.
Touch me, my sweengtane lingnoptherous
And spreadly thy titillating blowthanglotine.
Timely, so I may ogglasscenate thy dewy hienregnosplice,
That bulbousitous visage of beautacious thatchnicity.
Yield to my garbanzola.
For thyne noodlantonites aerominiate, Plebotine, my lovey.
Then hefter zweing snachlopoid archloptopus
And sit on my face.

490 I was watching TV and saw a commercial for TurboTax and noticed that they made a more compelling argument for lower taxes than the GOP. They simply state..."You work hard. You deserve to keep as much of your money as possible. Turbotax wants to help you. Every dollar counts". Why can't the GOP articulate its point just as clearly? It's an easy argument. Replace "Turbotax wants to help you" with "Republicans want to help everyone." These guys are so out of touch with most Americans that they no longer know how to communicate in anything other Beltway BS.

495 Anyone ever heard of these NY union member preferred cards.

A retired NYPD detective friend gave me a Detectives Benevolent one years ago. I just tossed it in a shoebox of stuff and forgot about it until now.

I had no idea there was a market for them.

499 Those 'fiat' links are depressing as hell. Can we really say we live under a constitution if the president can unilaterally ban fire arms and order more money printed?

These are scary times.
