Overnight Open Thread (1-17-2013)–The New Minimalism

You'll take your early ONT and you'll like it.

Books That Have Changed Your Life 

I've been trying to think of particular books that have had a major effect on me but I've read so much over so long that after a while the sources of inspiration begin to blend together.

The only two I could quickly name off-hand would be Voltaire's Candide and Douglas Hofstadter's Gödel, Escher, Bach. I'm sure there are many others but dangit I just can't think of them when put on the spot.

Feel free to add in your own personal life-changing books.

MLK, Non-Violence, and his Arsenal of Guns

Most people think King would be the last person to own a gun. Yet in the mid-1950s, as the civil rights movement heated up, King kept firearms for self-protection. In fact, he even applied for a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

...William Worthy, a journalist who covered the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, reported that once, during a visit to King's parsonage, he went to sit down on an armchair in the living room and, to his surprise, almost sat on a loaded gun. Glenn Smiley, an adviser to King, described King's home as "an arsenal."

Aaron Worthing points out that King wasn't quite as dedicated to pure non-violence as he always claimed in his speeches. This may make him somewhat dishonest but also more human and practical - and ultimately a better role model for real people than Gandhi was.

21 What Nevada Needs is a Good Fracking!

It looks like the “ocean of oil” discovered previously in Nevada may very well be exploited after all. With solar companies producing expensive energy with technology that is “not ready for primetime,” and wind farms that are far more environmentally unfriendly due to their causing many endangered species to be pushed to the bring of extinction, the use of fracking in Nevada will result in energy that is cheap, profitable, and far more environmentally sound than the alternatives.

Just to be clear - the proposed "better role model" was a disingenuous, plagarizing womanizer. Awesome. Seems like he might have glossed over a few parts of Ye Olde Bible en route to becoming a preacher.

Posted by: puddleglum at January 17, 2013 09:13 PM (15w2J)

64 Gandhi also had a bit of a "Jewish problem":

http://tinyurl.com/aqqwmdz

"According to Mr. Fischer, Gandhi's view was that the German Jews ought to commit collective suicide, which "would have aroused the world and the people of Germany to Hitler's violence." After the war he justified himself: the Jews had been killed anyway, and might as well have died significantly. One has the impression that this attitude staggered even so warm an admirer as Mr. Fischer, but Gandhi was merely being honest. If you are not prepared to take life, you must often be prepared for lives to be lost in some other way. When, in 1942, he urged non-violent resistance against a Japanese invasion, he was ready to admit that it might cost several million deaths."

In simple terms, Gandhi was a bit of a naive jerk.

For the record, I think we're somewhat of a hybrid between Brave New World and Fahrenheit 451, personally. It's astonishing to me how many people think F451 is about censorship, when it's really about becoming an incredibly stupid society that's entertaining itself to death.

Dude was a freak, preached celebacy but traveled with a male companion and wrote love letters to him about how looking at a jar of vaseline made him think of him etc. He was a hypocrite, looked down on black Africans, and thought the Jews should all just die already. Fuckin fraud

Ok, yeah, that's horrible. We only focused on his "political actions". Which were this, "go to an area of unrest, get his preach on, unrest worsens ultimately resulting in violence in the streets, he declares that the people aren't listening, moves on to next place" where it happens again and again and again.

102 "Low Level Hell" by H.L. Mills, Jr.

Not all war stories involve the most recent. The folks who fought the previous ten year war deserve some recognition. This is a great book. The author was shot down sixteen times, 70+ AMs, 3 Silver Stars, numerous awards with V device, 4 DFCs, and 3 BSMs. Unbelievable and unprecedented.

Life Changing books?
After Virtue By Alasdair MacIntyre. After I read it I began to understand culture's decay.
The "companion book" (as I like to say) is A Canticle for Liebowitz by Walter Miller Jr. Companion in that MacIntyre makes heavy reference to it in his opening chapters, so reading both helps you understand MacIntyre's train of though.

116 Yes, "The Fountainhead" was a bit of a life changing book. I read it over 30 years ago, and it got me to read a lot more that Ayn Rand wrote.
I have come to reject some of the things that she believed in, but reading her writings did make me realize that ideas have profound importance. People adsorb all kinds of stupid ideas through the vacuous culture around us, but I feel innoculated against a lot of this, because once you see the evil underlying the seductive stupdity, it becomes a lot easier to resist.

That, and "Starship Troopers" that I read about 45 years ago, and have re-read aboutseveral times since, and re-read occasionally when I have lost faith in the fundamental nature of man, and I see how far our culture has fallen, which Heinlein predicted.

I hated the teacher who assigned it and every literary asswipe who gushed about it.

I think it benefitted from two things: (1) Because of some of the language and sex, it was censored. Nothing gives libs a hardon like censorship over sex. (2) It gave voice to the narcissists in the baby boomer generation. It was insanely self-centered.

The African-American and Cuban, Chinese, and mexican communities have the answer we need to concentrate and grow our own economy and make those corporate bastards lust after our lost business.

Anyway I'm tired, cranky, and about to have a nyquil bomb with a kleenex chaser.

There is nothing more valuable to you than you or by way of honor and love your family and oath friends.

Everyone able has the potential to help, and we need to start working to have a renaissance in the Red States by using our political power to attract, create, or grow business, and fight like hell to thwart EPA stealing our land, water, and mineral use.

Run Red and let's get to work showing our model is better, teaching people to strive and dream and grow.

194 Chemjeff- If I may add. I was 34 when I finally met my first wife. Hope she's the last.

Anyway, I read something when I was about 30 that totally changed my view of women after having been a serious "rounder" and dating a lot of women over a long period.

What i read was this, "Find a woman who calms your spirit. Not one who challenges it."

Words to live by my friend.

195 188- I'd echo the recommendation....and the sentiment. I was commissioned under Reagan, but did a Pentagon tour under Clinton. I was profoundly disappointed. Griffin's books were the gold standard of how I thought the Army should be at senior levels.

Sean- glad it wasn't just me. The closest I got to it was my tour in Korea in 2000. The last vestiges of the Real Army until the War kicked off in 2001. But I'd still give anything to be in the army during that timeframe.

201 I think Piers Morgan is starting to do something new...and interesting. I think he's trying to become the Right's whipping boy.

My theory hinges on the fact that Piers is a whore (in this case, for ratings) and he's taken to having well-spoken and very well-informed conservatives on.

This started with Jonah Goldberg who was blindsided by Morgan's bullying, but Morgan gets trashed by Ben Shapiro and Dana Loesch and even lost to Alex Jones, even if you factor in teh crazy.

With Stewart and Maddow competing against him, he can't win the battle as Earnest Liberal, so why not spout the lib talking points with name-calling and yelling (which the libs want) but get beaten up every night by a conservative (which will get cons tuning in).

I call it the Washington Generals Strategy.

233 The Fountainhead, Atlas Shrugged and We The Living gave me an intense hatred of communisim. especially We The Living. It was like a Vaccination against liberalism, i got at age 13 or so.

but other books that changed my life we odd, perhaps. Hitchhiker's Guide To the Galaxy gave my my sense of humor.

A Princess Of Mars taught me what i wanted in a man (and a dog. I eventually found my Woola and named him Waldo)

Lucifer's Hammer made an impression as did The Long Arm of Gil Hamilton and Ringworld.

The Hero And The Crown and The Blue Sword likely put me on the path to my ethnic studies and taught me what manner of person i wanted to be.



and then i read Joseph Campbell and "Hero with a Thousand Faces" and realized WHY. He and Mercea Eliade changed how i viewed mankind and formed my worldview as it is today


Howard Schwartz also gets partial credit with Gabriel's Palace, but that was just the first book of his that i read and its been a love affair with his writing ever since.

Posted by: CharlieSays at January 17, 2013 10:24 PM (2aJHq)

247 Books that changed my life? I'm sure there have been several--I was a Literature major in college after all--but the one that jumps out most is C.S. Lewis' 'Mere Christianity'. I was an atheist most of my adult life. (I'd like to think I wasn't obnoxious and in-your-face about my non-belief. I was more live and let live.) After what can only be described as a profound (and deeply personal) religious experience, I found my childhood faith again.

The problem? Now that I had faith, I didn't know what to do with it: how to act, what the requirements were, or even how to pray. I told a friend of my dilemma and he referred me to C.S. Lewis. 'Mere Christianity' is a kind of practical guide to a Christian life and summarizes, in a very general way, what a Christian believes (or should believe) and how a Christian behaves and deals with the world. I needed all the guidance I could get.

268 Chemjeff,
Relax about finding the right person. Do things where you have a good time. Do things you enjoy. Then when you aren't expecting it, you might just meet someone that you have everything in common with.

276 debkafile’s
military and intelligence sources affirm that this new estimate may be
convenient for some but it is false: Iran already has enough enriched
uranium – produced or procured - for building at least five nukes. This
is no secret. Wednesday, Jan. 9, the Financial Times reported
that a stock of 5 tonnes of un-enriched uranium, enough to produce
weapons-grade fuel for five atomic devices, had gone missing in Syria
and may have passed to Iran. The stock had been prepared for the nuclear
reactor Bashar Assad was building at Al-Kibar in eastern Syria before
it was destroyed by Israel in 2007. The information was based on British
intelligence sources.

Oddly enough, tonight was my SCV meeting where the speaker presented 'The Confederados', Confederates who settled in Brazil after the War Between The States. Now the next time (if there is ever a change in our government) an effing lib like Baldwin or O'Donnel threatens to leave this country, remember the Confederados.

The first Heinlein book I read was Tunnel in the Sky. It left a mark, my sons read it at about the same age I did. Great book for adolescents.

The first science fiction book I ever read was A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter M. Miller, Jr. That lead me into a lifetime interest in science fiction leading to interests in technology, history, and politics. Changed my life for sure.

so did I but USS D I think the change came when Hollywood the campus and "science" allied and decided "agenda uber alles"

The current bastards were not entrenched when we were kids and they were leery of being SO overt when we were up against the Ivans.

Maybe we can convince Putin to put the evil evil bear outfit back on?

They added in the Multi Culti rot in the era of Clinton when I was in college.

I remember Limbaugh warning about it in 1993....

Thanks for the warning. I was actually thinking of seeing that movie. I can't sit through movies that have the typical lefty hollywood cliche villains:


It's getting trashed by the critics so it must be uber awful with all the tropes.

This explains why ZDT got so trashed. These guys are so used to doing melodramatic garbage that they put it into "serious" movies.

OK, here's something interesting: How about a liberal politician who goes against all his idealistic rhetoric? That would be interesting and it would show how awesome liberalism is but that one guy couldn't handle it.

Of course, that would reinforce a conservative theme: Be skeptical of those who wish to rule you.

Limbaugh's lifted stuff from here, or his staff has and fed it to him.

We should get a round robin "blight of the day" thing going where we push to abolish minimum wage.

That is how they are holding the economic recovery down....

extend jobless bennies and then raise the minimum wage in a down economy chasing off potential low level manufacturing or resource exploitation work.

None of this is rocket surgery.

prior to FDR no depression lasted more than a year and a half.

It took a socialist to make it a national hobby for a decade.

Agree completely. We farm and my 12 yo boy can shoot, weld, castrate a calf, milk a cow, saddle and ride a horse, use a cutting torch, a hammer, drill, tractor, circular saw, 4 wheeler, lawn mower, splitting maul, knife, and a hundred other things. He even reloads his own shells, both rifle and shotgun.

We homeschool and go to church three times per week. He WON'T be in the FSA, I promise. A farming background is dangerous for the commies that want helpless serfs.

427 Lucifer's Hammer is a great end of the world tome. But so is Earth Abides. What is interesting about that book is watching the devolution of humanity. Basically, only the cockroaches of humanity survive and breed. But a great story none the less. Also someone mentioned Vonnegut- Breakfast of Champions was the first Von. book I read and I love it some 20 years later. I think a book can be life changing if the story is so enjoyable that you can pick it up in 20 years and still get enjoyment out of it. This is the spice of life. That and a saucy woman. And scotch.

I actually liked "Footfall" a lot better than "Lucifer's Hammer".

Somewhat similar them, but a lot more twists and turns.
On Heinlein: He was a Methodist, as was Virginia, his third and last wife, the love of his life (she was a ginger, too).
He mocked the hypocracies of organized religion, but I think that he was a deeply believing man. He mocked religion a lot in "Stranger in a Strange Land", where Michael invents his own religion, and really mocks religion in "J.O.B. , A Comedy of Justice". Robert having fun again.

If you want to understand him a little better, find a non-fiction book he wrote back in the '50's called "Tramp Royale", where he and Virginia sail around the world on tramp steamers. A lot of fun, they had a lot of fun. And they loved to drink and have fun. People seemed to like them wherever they went, and made a lot of friends, because they were a lot of fun. Except in South Africa (which they loved because of the scenery and hated because of apartheid) and New Zealand (which they pretty much hated because is was a socialist nightmare, but then it has changed since then, I guess).

Concerning "Winters Tale" (a big fave when i was 14) did Obamas campaign strike you as a sort of Prager De Pinto Party? you know how he promised happier families and whiter Christmases for all? i think he explained that since all politicians lied he was just going to tell the best lies of all!. i often wondered if the architechts of the O campaign didnt read that story and make it a plan.

They jumped on the "don't sell evil assault weapons" bandwagon for a few days, until they got *slammed* online with tens of thousands of comments and hostile reactions.

They tried to retcon it into "we were just having inventory problems and really meant we just needed to get our ordering system in order", but that wasn't what they said when they started, they related it to Newtown.

Kind of saying all their customers were all potential spree killers.

There is J who seems to oscillate between passing college and not, while desiring to always be at a con or in a mosh pit. Then there is E, he is the sarcastic angry slacker who never does anything. H was wearing a dog collar while she busily did another furry sketch, asked her if she wanted to tackle book cover but she has shown no interest. Across the booth from H is S, she is blond with multiple piercings who just exists to orbit H. C1 is a big teddy bear of a guy, easily going nowhere. C2 is a smaller teddy bear but is always being dominated by H, E, C1, and others. C3 is probably the only one who will make anything of himself, amateur videographer who is studying Chinese in college. Finally for special snowflake mention is Brony Boy - skinny black guy with goatee who is living for his PS3 this Friday while wearing a Rainbow Pony hoodie [baby blue hoodie with a rainbow mane on the hood and little baby blue wings sewn on back].

I concur. No such thing as 'price gouging'. Raising prices keeps one customer from buying the entire inventory...and depriving all others. If the price gets high enough, other suppliers will move in and balance will be restored.

No, I don't think so--although submission seems to play a part, along with Daddy or Mommy issues buried not-so-deep in the psyche. Some people adore the Man (or Woman) On The White Horse. Obama said it himself: he is the blank screen upon which they project their hopes and dreams; the living embodiment of their ideals and aspirations.

597 Guys. I'll stick my neck out here. These vendors are businesses, just like my small business. While the price gouging might be distasteful, I still call it "supply and demand". Customer don't like, he don't buy. Easy Squeazy.

Two things: First, they apparently tied it (probably self-righteously) to the whole gun control craze.

Second, you do take a risk in raising prices in a crisis. If the crisis averts, then the customers have bad feelings if they think they've been taken advantage of.

But you are right about supply and demand.

How about the commercial of the guy pulling up to his house in the middle of the night after a hard day of driving his classic car in the desert. The light in the upstairs bedroom snaps on and the guy smiles knowingly and thinks " Oh baby, papa is home. Get that pill ready."
Ugh. I hate that commercial

I didn't see anyone here calling for "anti-price-gouging" laws or anything. Rather, they're practicing exactly what you're stating: they're not buying from CtD. Like others have mentioned, it was their cowardice demonstrated by suddenly halting all firearm purchases following the Newton murders that pissed me off the most.

It's produced in Georgia, and the writers are surprisingly knowledgeable on various facets of geopolitical facts; for example, one episode focused on the fact that Castro actually hates gay people, and wants them dead, unlike American Christians, who just don't want to see the gay lifestyle normalized.

TI occurs when a 3rd party intentionally damage the contract between two other companies. The US Federal Government is a consumer of guns and ammo and their interference with other purchases should be seen as a tortious one.

The Feds consume weapons and ammo, and yet interfere with the contracts between civilians and firearm companies.

The
Eeeevil Republican Billionaire Mayor[TM] played by Russell Crowe, is
opposed by the Righteous Lefty Homosexual Mayoral Candidate (no, not Ed

Yeah, it's that subtle.

Wahlberg must not have spent much time in Detroit when he was in "Four Brothers"

But I guess being buddies with Boston mayor Mumbles Menino buys a lot of goodwill in hiding Markie-Mark's past indiscretions as a youth. Especially arrests indicating that Mark and Donnie weren't always so racially enlightened

701 Troll goals:

1. Drop certain phrases or words repeatedly to both associate a site with an idea and cause search engines to make that association.

2. Encourage angry response in hope of obtaining "quotables" to prove, as Londo Mollari would say, "that the Narn are barbarians!"

3. Derail any discussion ongoing to make a site less useful or interesting and to disrupt productive or fun conversations.

4. To generally disrupt a community and make people there less productive and unhappy.

So, naturally, a lot of people's first response is "hey, that sounds good, let's do that!"

751 According to the Amercian liberal doctrine, back in 19XX (date changes per the topic),Democrats and Republicans all secretly changed titles...but staggered it over a couple decades.

Hence, Bull OConnor - who labeled himself a "Democrat" - was actually a Republican in 1961. However, two years later,JFK - who labeled himself a "Democrat" - was actually a realDemocrat until he died in 1963. On the other hand, Klansman Robert Byrd - who labeled himself a Democrat - was actually a Republican, but never got around to changing his party.

This is actually what liberals truly believe!

773 The scene: A typical twelve step program set-up. Off to one side, a sign say Welcome to Trolls Anonymous. A young man stands up and begins to speak.

Fappy: Hi. I'm Fappy McFaperson, and I'm a troll.

Crowd: Hi, Fappy.

Fappy: It started out innocently enough. Posting goatse links on Slashdot as Anonymous Coward. But that wasn't enough. Soon I was posting porn links on Christian sites, and gay porn on kids sites.

Then I thought I'd found trolling nirvana, the Ace of Spades. I trolled mercilessly, day and night, under multiple names from multiple IP addresses. It was all I lived for.

Eventually, it took over my life.

I lost my job at the comic book store, my mom kicked me out of her basement. But I kept going, trolling from the Library, getting a quick hit off a stranger's laptop at Starbucks.

Then, one evening, it happened. I was trolling Ace's as usual, when there was a brilliant flash of light. For a moment I was completely blind. Slowly my vision returned. I could see that I had been badly burned, almost like sunburn and electrocution had a mosh pit on my skin.

Then I noticed the smell, a mixture of ozone and my own failure. I knew then that I had hit rock bottom, and invoked the wrath of the TB3K.

I gave up trolling that day. It's been six months, and every day is a struggle. But as God is my witness, I will never troll again.

Scene shifts to crowd as they rise and beat Fappy to death with their chairs.

n the last few years, and especially since 2007, there has been a dramatic rise in the number of attacks and violent plots originating from individuals and groups who self-identify with the far-right of American politics. These incidents cause many to wonder whether these are isolated attacks, an increasing trend, part of increasing societal violence, or attributable to some other condition. To date, however, there has been limited systematic documentation and analysis of incidents of American domestic violence.

This study provides a conceptual foundation for understanding different far-right groups and then presents the empirical analysis of violent incidents to identify those perpetrating attacks and their associated trends..

According to the Amercian liberal doctrine, back in 19XX (date changes
per the topic),Democrats and Republicans all secretly changed
titles...but staggered it over a couple decades.



Hence, Bull OConnor - who labeled himself a "Democrat" - was
actually a Republican in 1961. However, two years later,JFK - who
labeled himself a "Democrat" - was actually a realDemocrat until he died
in 1963. On the other hand, Klansman Robert Byrd - who labeled himself a
Democrat - was actually a Republican, but never got around to changing
his party.



This is actually what liberals truly believe!

Posted by: Icedog at January 18, 2013 01:02 AM (PTS+l)

Of course, there is a certain amount of truth to the matter -- as in "Merely corroborative detail, intended to give
artistic verisimilitude to an otherwise bald and unconvincing
narrative."

According to Wikipedia (yeah, I know), "The Democratic Party evolved from Anti-Federalist factions that opposed the fiscal policies of Alexander Hamilton in the early 1790s. Thomas Jefferson and James Madison organized these factions into the Democratic-Republican Party. The party favored states' rights and strict adherence to the Constitution; it opposed a national bank and wealthy, moneyed interests. The Democratic-Republican Party ascended to power in the election of 1800."

So, yeah -- the Dems that currently believe in unbridled Federal supremacy, tramples on states' rights and the Constitution, has wholly compromised the Fed, and is peppered with Geithners, Corzines, and Lews.....originally opposed all those things and had "Republican" in its name.

The next time I run into a liberal spouting this, I'm going to have to grill them on how Democrats are able to give Republicans racism cooties in a way that makes Democrats pure as snow on racism. 100% of Democrat racists switched to the Republican party and infected them with racism? Really?

796 Matter is made of tiny things that love each other deep down but are so full of anger and jealousy that they push themselves apart, and spin madly trying to get rid of the anger.

For example, I know that electrons are jealous as hell because neutrons and protons are closer together. Wouldn't you be?

One day at the end of the universe their anger will be spent and they will come together and finally there will be nothing left but love and tiny things, and there will be a universal explosion of joy.

Unfortunately, explosions piss tiny things off, so after the explosion of joy all the tiny things will be angry again and push each other apart, and spin, trying to throw the anger off.

837 During the National Rifle Association’s meeting with Vice President Joe Biden and the White House gun violence task force, the vice president said that the administration did not have the time to prosecute existing gun laws.

Jim Baker, the NRA representative present at the meeting, recalled the vice president’s words to The Daily Caller: “And to your point, Mr. Baker, regarding the lack of prosecutions on lying on Form 4473s, we simply don’t have the time or manpower to prosecute everybody who lies on a form, that checks a wrong box, that answers a question inaccurately.”

Submitting false information on an ATF Form 4473 — required for the necessary background check to obtain a firearm — is a felony punishable by up to ten years in prison, depending on prior convictions and the judge, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

So I've been thinking about this for a while, and researching various stuff out there -- "Little Machine Shop" is a great resource, BTW, and I'd love to support them more if they didn't share my state. So I picked up an actual paper mag -- "The Home Shop Machinist", and it's got 4 Harbor Freight ad pages.....but they're wildly different from the stuff I'm used to seeing (and I live down the street from one). They've got a 20% off coupon -- 57325540 -- and a mini-lathe coupon -- 72859383 for $100 UNDER what they're big advertised sale is. So I saunter in to the HF store and they have NO FREAKIN' CLUE where there's a mini-mill in stock (confirmed with HQ later) but they have piles of the lathe. And, yes, the lathe is $100 off list (and it's a real list, I was pricing it for a while)....while the coupon is $200 off.

Then I look online, and the minimill is $100 off to $500, and it accepts the 20% coupon to $400. I spent $150 on a Hitachi circular saw a while back.....and here this is a precision metal mill for $400.

I know I'm going to get scrunged for the tooling, but for now I'm oddly gleeful.

886 cAC, I have a mini-mill (not necessarily that model, but I paid more), and I'm not sure your going to get the tolerances you want out of it. It drifts on longer cuts and the machinists have dubbed it Mr. Wobbly. It is good for milling slots, db9 holes, D holes for connectors, etc. not so much for milling out large areas. At a minimum, I think you will need a program to hog out the mass - then a detail program to dial it in. Another approach would be to drill out the mass, then detail mill it.

Do you intend to work from a partial lower, or just start with a block?

http://tinyurl.com/aeyj9xu

Especially this part;

"In both substance and process, the bill which recently passed at the
governors urging and with the support of our legislature will become
infamous for several reasons. Notwithstanding the lack of a concise goal
it will truly accomplish, these primarily include the lack of
transparency, debate and comment from the governed they serve. Our government agreed to suspend those wise measures to pass and enact a law they
deemed necessary and proper. Where did they get such power to subvert
the people and our Constitution? Why did they rush it through and fear
the people’s review? Those are questions we should all be asking
ourselves and legislators at the moment."

More frightening is the governor believes this type of behavior will appeal to a national electorate...
