ONT for Thursday 1/24/2013: Emasculated Heroes Edition

Over the weekend, I became aware through some rather unsavory back channels there was a possible need for outside contributions to the Overnight Open Thread through this week. Naturally, after a few days of hoping all the slots would be quickly snapped up by a combination of other eager guest bloggers and maybe a cob or two, I jumped at the opportunity. After all, who knows when I'll ever get another chance to parade my haplessness before a mob of sadistic hecklers?

So, here it is:

Big rigs. Eighteen-wheelers. Semi-trucks. Tractor-trailers. Whatever you want to call them, if you were a red-blooded American boy at any point in your life, chances are you were infatuated with them for least part of it. They were big, loud, and often loaded with contraband. And, given the fact that women look for those very qualities in men, having command of such machinery makes you irresistible to them. They will do anything for you, including competing against large men in a pickup football game.

But, here come the Scandis, threatening to sap the last bit of romance out of the life of the truck-drivin' man by engineering away all its death-defying manliness. Could C.W. McCall have written his classic hit "Convoy" while observing the open road from the cab of a Volvo? To ask the question is to answer it.


So, now that northern Europeans are busily stripping away away the bad-boy sex appeal of the over-the-road trucker, boys and men are left to find alternative vehicular means of getting women to do anything for them. And that leaves only one option: Fast cars. If you have a couple-hundred grand that you were thinking about investing in a big rig in the hopes of securing a few dames and a chimp for companionship, you might consider the Lamborghini Gallardo, instead.



If your trust fund isn't quite large enough to afford such extravagances, then you're going to have to figure out a way to make the money yourself. Unfortunately, we're not all idea-men. Some of us have to get rich through hard work, grit and determination. Others have unusual talents that they're able to parlay into personally satisfying and financially rewarding careers. Fortunately, though, we live in an era where the lack of discernible talent or work ethic need not be a barrier to success.


For example, there's French hip-hop sensation Alex Du 76.



If he can manage to pull dames like this and get them to debase themselves in such a public fashion -- and without the slightest indication of rhyming or dancing ability, who's to say you can't be the next John Lennon. (Although, when it comes to pulling the birds, he may not exactly be the best exemplar. [Content warning: Salty language.])


Anyway, the point of all this is to observe the steady decline in the importance of manliness as a virtue among male role models and heroes. I suppose it all began well before I was born into the world, but it certainly seems to have taken a sharper downward trajectory in the course of my lifetime. When big trucks become as safe as a mother's nurturing embrace, and budding pop stars fall back on the notion of "swag" as a substitute for masculinity, it's a sure sign of a broader cultural emasculation.


At this point, it seems we can only hope the ultimate product of this trend doesn't end up on our grocers' shelves, like that of so many unfortunate lesser mammals.



Depressing as it may be, I guess I should have seen this coming a long time ago, when all my heroes of hard rock and heavy metal in the 80's suddenly found themselves confronted with the dilemma of staying true to the music and its testosterone-driven hard edge, or softening their image so as not to come off as threatening to teenaged girls. It was about that time, after all, when androgyny inexplicably became all the rage. Suddenly, groups started giving themselves names like Rose Bayonet, spelling the end of acts with such manly names as Jag Panzer.



So, for all the hype given the purported "War on Women", we men sure seem to have been making a terrible hash of things. The tough, fearless and slightly crazy heroes emulated by generations of men is steadily being scrubbed from the collective male consciousness in favor of lame, limp-wristed fops who wear machismo like a Halloween costume. I, for one, eagerly await the inevitable backlash.

1 So, any of you morons want to bring your Second Amendment rights over for a visit? I found out today that I don’t have any, and I kind of miss ‘em.



Last month I went to buy a gun. I filled out all of the paperwork, was very careful to read all of the questions thoroughly and answer truthfully. Sent it away with nary a thought, figured that it was just a matter of time, those State Police boys are swamped with applications right now.

So Today I get a letter from the police, saying I’m declined. It seems that I am “Prohibited from purchasing a firearm!” and because I signed the form saying I wasn’t I had committed perjury, my case was being submitted to the AG for criminal investigation, and oh, by the way YOU ARE PROHIBITED FROM POSSESSING FIREARMS, please contact us if you have any so we can assist you in disposing of them (riiiiiight).



What.

The.

Fuck???



There’s a number to call, so I do so. I’m thinking it’s probably a mistake, “oh we got you confused with..” kinda deal. Nope. Seems that there’s a record of my being charged with “unlawful use of a telephone” in 1989. Huh? I don’t remember that (I didn’t). No clue what’s going on. Talk to the guy some more, nope, there’s nothing more, some minor stuff that was stetted or PBJed (probation before judgment) back in my youth, but that’s it: unlawful use of a telephone, and not only does it sound like a joke, it sounds like a dirty one. I did finally figure out what happened. Way back in college, after a breakup with an old GF, she took me to court charging me with harassing her. I denied it, the judge said leave her alone or I’ll throw the book at you, I said I never wanted to see the crazy bitch again and that was the end of it. I hadn’t thought of it in over 20 years, truthfully since maybe a week after the time in court. I’ve figured it out. What must have happened, in order to ensure that I never contacted crazy ex-gf, was the judge found me guilty of unlawful phone use, suspended sentence, and stuck me on unsupervised probation so that if I did call crazy ex-gf, she could find me in violation and impose the jail time. I, who had no desire to see her again, counted this as a win and went on with my life, forgetting the whole sordid episode. NOW, however, I’m in a great big fur ball of shit because of it. In no particular order:



A) Wife is mad. Not because of some bullshit harassment charge decades before we met that I never told her about, but because she was looking forward to having the gun. She’s developed a liking for shooting and was looking forward to doing more of it, now she can’t even go buy the gun herself because that’ll scream “STRAW PURCHASE” to the cops, even if it’s not. I have no problem not having access to the weapon, but we’ll have to look into that, it may be tricky. Can’t do that until next week because:

B) My lawyer is in Nevada until Monday. I sure hope the Md. AG doesn’t take it in his head to do anything tomorrow about:

C)The fact that I now have a FUCKING PERJURY CHARGE hanging over my head. I put no trust, none, nada, zero in that the guy on the phone said “Well, they’ll be no charges, but there could be”, so to make sure I’m damn clean I no longer:

D)“Possess” any firearms whatsoever, and no, they’re not buried in the yard. There isn’t a firearm in the house, on my property or within miles of me (except what other people may own, of course). I possess and have access to not one single firearm, so:

E)Hope nobody breaks in and, to top it off:

F)In order to get this cleared off of my record I have to begin the process of petitioning the Governor for a pardon for my unlawful phone use, a process that starts with a 30 page document that must be exactingly filled out and ends in 1-2 years, at which point the only guns allowed in Md. will probobaly have “NERF” written on them.





ARRRRRRGH!!!!!!!FUCKITY FUCK!

18 A Case in Point: The Failure of Higher Education

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas has often played second fiddle to its elder sibling in the Nevada System of Higher Education, the University of Nevada, Reno. Though UNLV has so far successfully avoided having a psycho killer named after them like UNR did, they are still stuck between becoming a premier research university, and a glorified community college. At UNLV, only 1 in 10 students graduate within four years, and less than 4 in 10 graduate after 10. In contrast, UNR graduates nearly half of its students. When “almost” half of student graduating seems like a worthy goal to work up to, it is clear that UNLV needs to focus on academic teaching and attracting quality professors by providing an environment conducive towards cutting edge research.

57 "Unlawful use of a telephone" isn't a felony, I don't believe (or I've been lying on everything I've filled out since college), but it is a "misdemeanor that carries a possible sentence of more than 2 years", which is the threshold in Md. for gun ownership. Ex didn't want to hear from me(she had nothing to worry about), this was judge's way of saying "If you even call her, you're in violation, all she has to do is notify me"; that fact that the sentence was 30 days suspended is immaterial, it COULD have been 3 years.

*Any* contact with the legal system = YOU'RE BONED.

You *NEVER* get to walk away. You should have (and yes I know no one told you to) had that vacated / removed years ago. Now will be a bad time to do that, but the lawyers back then made sure you have to pay lawyers now to unravel that mess.

This kind of thing actually happens quite a lot. Some of those failed background checks that are never prosecuted are in fact bizarre disqualifications that catch people off guard. I've seen some that are just similar names or even stolen SSNs that no one ever bothered to cross-check.

You need the lawyer, sadly, to unravel this. Hope they have a reasonable judge lined up.

80 I would hate to see the load in the truck that brakes like that. I, on more than one occasion, have had to file claims on trucking companies who had loads shift FORWARD. It is always funny that the driver and the company always tell me that they have no idea how that could have happened.

81 My Equus has that emergency braking and I have sort of tried to get it to work. The dealer said don't, it will work when you need it and it will not be pleasant. The seat beat automatically pulls your ass tight as a tick and then the whole car goes into stop mode.

129 New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) was willing to reach out to offer President Barack Obama congratulations after he won reelection in November, but after hearing the president's second inaugural address this week, the governor says he has concerns about the next four years.

“Instead of trying to bring people together it was a manifesto for, ‘Hey, it’s my way or the highway,’” Christie said this week during an interview on NJ 101.5's monthly "Ask the Governor" program. “We’re going to see how he acts moving forward.”

Christie is not the only conservative who has accused Obama of being overly partisan with his address, which was widely regarded as an unapologetic defense of liberal policies.

Posted by: Niedermeyer's Dead Horse at January 24, 2013 10:31 PM (piMMO)

This is what I was thinking as well, My husband got a gun few years back here in MD, but wonder if they would dig deeper now, I bet they are just looking for shit to disqualify people for. I think the next gun we get we will put it in my name not his, just in case they try to pull some stupid crap.

Former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has been moved from the Chaim Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer to the Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba for an examination scheduled in advance.

Sharon is expected to be returned to the Tel Hashomer hospital later tonight, and his condition remains unchanged. Seven years ago Sharon suffered a major stroke that left him comatose. (Dr. Itay Gal and Ilana Curiel)

You will love the T-53. I have 2. The stock will be horrible (like it was attacked by angry beavers prior to being used a fence post), the metal will have little bluing but be is great shape as generally are the bores.

It will most likely be missing a cleaning rod (the M-44 aftermarket ones fit it).

Do a range report for us, when you take it out the first time.

Its hilarious...I always try to get near the AR guys. on the range.

You hear the AR's...pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, then the T-53 goes ....Bawhooooooom as a fire ball about 2 feet long exits the barell!

244 The Type 82 Kubelwagen. Built at the KdF factory, after the war would become Wolfsburg. Powered by an air-cooled 1100cc motor of roughly 25HP. Also had a limited slip differential. Non-synchro split-case transmission. Some reports in North Africa indicated it would take 3 Jeeps in trade to get a Kubelwagen. One noted operator of a Type 82 was the Star of Afrika Hans-Joachim Marseilles.

VWoA sold just over 26,000 VW Things in the US. Quick visual difference between a Kubelwagen and a Thing is how the spare tire is mounted on the front hood. The Kubelwagens spare was mounted in a depression in the hood. The Thing spare tire, there was no depression. IIRC 1974 and later Things had auxiliary air intakes mounted over the rear wheels - those square boxes. Things had a wider pan that came from the VW Karmann Ghia.

250 In 1990 while stationed in Italy I was invited to an embassy dinner in Istanbul while I was doing some work there. Great party and lots of food! The cocktail meatballs were delicious and I asked another guest what kind of Turkish recipe this was. Goat balls!!!

Hours later I'm in my hotel room heaving away - it was food poisoning and I never found out from what. But I now firmly believe that it was
"Revenge of the Balless Goat" that got me.

They were seriously delicious while they stayed down anyways.

260 Remember a long-lasting dustup over the "Lautenberg Amendment"? The immediate issue in that was LEO's losing their jobs if they'd ever had a domestic violence complaint filed on them, and it turned out quite a few had.

Well, the spirit of that motion was to extend the traditional denial of arms to felons, so that certain misdemeanors qualified as a "firearms disability" too. There were a lot of specific exemptions issued, state to state, to shut up the cop unions, but it started a movement to create "fifth-class felonies" and a host of new disabling misdemeanors. This was all part of the last gun-ban movement.

268 Weirddave. a short list of places to move to: Wyoming, the Dakotas (lotsa jobs there), Montana, Idaho (great tech jobs), Texas (natch), Utah (Wyoming is close for your liquor needs), even large swatches of places like Oregon, Washington (east of the Cascades), Nevada, Arizona. And, if your spirit of adventure is peaking...Alaska.

Interestingly, these are many of the same places where the male/female wage gap is most evident:

"Ms. Madden said the data show that "in states with larger non-urban populations, there are larger gender gaps." She explained that strength plays a bigger role in employment in rural areas so that men, who tend to be stronger, get jobs that pay more"So, go there.

Read the article at my sig. It sets up the whole "pay inequity" schtick and thenundermines it with "the disparity...is more a function of the jobs women are taking rather than pay for the same jobs."

No kidding.

not so complicated. you may own a building that is ten stories tall but have the right to build one that is twenty stories tall. in that instance you have "air rights" for an additional ten stories. sometimes the air rights are transferable and are sold to people who want to build something taller than they have rights for in their existing property.

Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo at January 24, 2013 10:10 PM (GsoHv)

Just got here, so I don't know if anyone has posted this yet:

If money's no object, hit McCrady's. I haven't been in a little over year, since it is a bit pricey, but it's every bit worth it - again (disclaimer) a year ago.
www.mccradysrestaurant.com

No matter what, check out The Glass Onion. It's run by hipsters, but they don't seem to be preachy. Their menu changes daily and they're closed on Sundays, so plan accordingly. If you don't like crowds, avoid Tuesday Fried Chicken Dinner night, but holy shit, that's good chicken. Reserve in advance because they seriously do run out. We have so many incredible restaurants here, but this one is definitely my favorite, especially since the prices are reasonable. Their website is ilovetheglassonion.com. One must-have is the chicken liver mousse with house made pickled vegetables and anything with pork belly.

Oh! There's also a pretty decent Thai restaurant on James Island on the way out to Folly Beach called Pick Thai.

Wait...SC or WV? Suggestions are for SC.

I hope all the spaces I used show up. If they don't, I apologize in advance.

I have the Glock 36 which is a single-stack compact .45, and I like it just fine. The G21 has a larger mag capacity, is double stack and larger in the grip. I liked the G36 better because of its slim grip, my hands are not overly large.

check out Ice Road Truckers on whatever channel it was on, if it's still on. (History channel, DVDs too)

It'll give you some examples, the weather is a bit extreme, but not much more than in the lower 48.

With the new hours of service, and electronic logs, it's a different game.

and cross border operations has to be a pain since 9/11.

I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, seriously. Unless you have no other choice.
Adam Smith in his book 'Wealth of Nations' even addresses the circumstance where surplus labor goes into transportation; it was maritime when he was writing about it. But when people are desperate, it drives wages down to the point where everyone starves.

Even in desperate times there will be the one percent who succeed.

Then again, that could be on purpose. Forget I mentioned it.

Weirddave, you need a criminal attorney to look into getting the record expunged. An experienced attorney in your state will know what, if any, hoops need to be jumped through. With a clean record afterwards, as well as the fact you didn't even know a judgement had been entered against you, this should be doable.

But it's the fucking east coast, so I could easily be wrong. Still, you need a criminal attorney with experience in their system. Good luck.

OK, more on the MS deal. The Microsoft Home Use Program is a long established program. Usually you need a corporate email and your company's program code to get in on the price, but every so often a code you can use with non-corporate emails leaks, like tonight.

I did this before with Office 2010 with no issues. Just save your installers and the email with your product keys and you should be solid.

Interestingly, having a CPAP has made my "going to bed" process a lot more formal. I normally hang out online until I'm tired, then get ready for bed, climb in, and strap the mask on......and usually I'm right out. 'Cause I've been trained that "strap on mask -> sleep".

Didn't used to be that way at all -- I used to joke that I was really good at the sleeping and being awake things, but had a lot of problems with the transitions. Used to have a tea and newspaper ritual in the mornings to kickstart the waking up thing, and then CPAP for the going to bed.

1. What inspired you to get into this industry? I did my first photoshoot for a pageant while employeed by hooters, I placed 2nd
out of 41girls. On top of that my boyfriend got involved and really pushed me to do more and started setting up shoots as well as networking. And it's just grown from there, it was a huge confidence booster as well as I enjoy every second of it so here I
am now.

2. How long have you been modeling? Maybe a total of 7-8 months, loved every minute of it and look forward to many more!!! Shot with many great photographers such as GamaFoto Mark Bradley Dan McCarty. They all made my experiences a blast and I love working with them.

3. Who is your favorite model? Tyra She's Amazing!! I've been watching America's next top model since I was in jr high, love the legs on that woman as well as she has such an amazing personality.

4. Tell us something random about yourself. I've never been on a plane I havent jumped out of.. I have a birthmark that
covers 1/8 of my body...I' had my beautiful daughter @ the age of 16.

5. What are you most proud of? I'm proud to have the support of my amazing boyfriend who has helped me get my foot in the door, I wouldn't have done anything without him getting my confidence up to persue this dream. It's amazing to know I have
someone there who cares so much and puts so much into helping me along the way.

6. Upcoming projects? I am now an offical GearHead Flicks Girl we have been working on many films some of which have been previously released as well as some soon to come. I will also be featured throughout the T.I.T.S. clothing line sometime in the next couple of months.

7. When it's all said and done, what do you want to be remembered as? the worlds hottest mom

8. Additional Comments? Surround yourself with positive people who are going to support you in anything you want to do, And don't let anyone hold you back from your dreams.

That comment reminds me of an occurrence back in the day. We had a 13-year-old boy in the hospital being monitored for abnormal heart rhythm, on telemetry (so he was able to be up and around the ward and still monitored). One night, the nurse at the monitoring station saw his cardiac rhythm go all wackadoodle, and the team went rushing in to his hospital room. They stormed in on him in the bathroom in "fap"-lagrante delecto, IYKWIM. Poor kid probably never whacked off again.

Evening all. I have a question. We had a salesman swing by and make his pitch for blowing Mylar over my foot or more of insulation. He claims the reflectivity will result in a 33% savings in my energy bill. His price started out, including a 10% discount for being a Sam's club member, at$5700. I told him, I give a shit less about the saving the envirionment crap and I may be interested at $2000. He called his boss and came backwith,if my wife would do a video testimonial and we put a sign in our yard, aprice of $3000. I said not interested. He came back with, if in a couple years we considered having them paint our house with their super coating that costs 2 1/2 to 3 times as much as regular paint, $2500 (if I said okay today). I said I had a hard and fast rule that I never buy under pressure and I would contact him in a week after I checked out the return on investment myself. I mentioned "trust but verify."
I haven't seen reports of over 18% savings and that would be a long payback period. Need I ask, do any of you eggheads have an opinion on the efficiancy of blowing mylar over insulation in the Southern Ohio part of the country?

I think it's something useful for you to do once....in my case, 32 years ago. You learn a lot about yourself. But it has a weird drag on you.

Then, again, it's not like the corpus doesn't occasionally come up with a new twist on things -- a couple of years ago, for instance, I didn't eat for four days. And then there was another time I slept for 14 hours straight. I have a feeling that such anomalies will become increasingly common as I move into my second half-century.

Blowing Mylar is crap, laying a Mylar sheet may be something. Think of how a broken mirror reflects light blown Mylar will do the same. There are paints that may be effective (http://www.nasa.gov/topics/nasalife/green_paint.html) Or just look into Mylar coated bubble wrap and compare price. http://www.radiantguard.com/bubble-insulation.html

Find out if anyone in the home construction business is using the product or something similar. If it isn't worth it to them for enhancing sellability of new homes it probably isn't worth apply to an existing structure.

Most big home builders probably have a hotline just for this sort of question if you can put up with the persistent attempts to sell you something.

It works and it will save you some cash (not as much as 18% though, more like 10-14) but yeah, if you have a foot of insulation, it won't help you much. That being said, that price is way too high anyways as its cheap and easy to instal

487 "Blowing" mylar? What, little strips of it? I can't imagine what that would do. I used mirror-surface mylar sheet to help in a special application, and it did help but it's hard to quantify the result because multiple inputs.

I have an almost flat roof over the back 2/3 of a second story. It heated all right, but on a 75 degree day, it would be 92 in the upper rooms at 5 PM. Sunlight on the roof (white roof FWIW) saturated the insulated airspace, and even with all windows open and a vent fan, it would bake. A building engineer called it "heat-shock." The lower part of the house would stay very bearable without A/C even at 90 outside.

I made vent channels out of foil-face hard foam and drove them between the rafters from outside, then built a shallow plenum on the roof deck, sized holes, and connected the vent fan to that passage instead of the interior rooms. Then I covered the deck with mirror mylar (stapled lightly, taped joints with packaging tape), covered that with 2 inch block insulboard, and installed rubber roof over that. That did it. Those upper rooms now stay at ambient air temperature.

They tell me the mylar is a hell of a radar target, from above -- one of the things that makes it so good for a survival blanket. Remember that if you're hiding out in the woods.

If you have normal attic insulation, you could just cover it with cheap mylar blankets. Unless you have a vapor barrier on the heated side, I would not seal them. I really think the best place to use it is under the shingles.

495 Insulation is about dead air space

+1

One of the
few things that has stuck with me from Heat and Mass Transfer class is
that the vast majority of insulation occurs within a narrow boundary
along the edge of the material in question. What you ideally want is a whole
bunch of narrowly-spaced impermeable layers with air trapped between them. The better something approximates that, the better your insulation.

Tiny strips of reflective stuff jammed in overtop of existing insulation doesn't sound particular effective.

Air rights means you own the rights to the space over your property vertically. If your neighbor builds a garage one foot from your property line with two foot wide eaves (that hang over your property line) he's encroaching on your property one foot.

Property laws vary from state to state so utilities, for instance, might legally run wires through your air space without an easement depending upon your state laws. But in every state, to my knowledge, building projections over a property line are considered an encroachment on the adjoining property.

Air rights also mean you can cut the branches off of your neighbor's trees that hang over your property line. And if it's a fruit tree you can harvest the fruit on your side of your property line.

I mentioned vertically because if you own the mineral rights to your land (again, varying from state to state) you own rights to a cone shaped region to the center of the earth. With air rights it's a vertical line straight up. And yeah -- if you want to be a prick about it, you can cut off the neighbor's hypothetical one foot garage eave overhang that I mentioned above.

Evening all. I have a question. We had a salesman swing by and make
his pitch for blowing Mylar over my foot or more of insulation. He
claims the reflectivity will result in a 33% savings in my energy bill.
His price started out, including a 10% discount for being a Sam's club
member, at$5700. I told him, I give a shit less about the saving the
envirionment crap and I may be interested at $2000. He called his boss
and came backwith,if my wife would do a video testimonial and we put a
sign in our yard, aprice of $3000. I said not interested. He came back
with, if in a couple years we considered having them paint our house
with their super coating that costs 2 1/2 to 3 times as much as regular
paint, $2500 (if I said okay today). I said I had a hard and fast rule
that I never buy under pressure and I would contact him in a week after I
checked out the return on investment myself. I mentioned "trust but
verify."
I haven't seen reports of over 18% savings and that would be
a long payback period. Need I ask, do any of you eggheads have an
opinion on the efficiancy of blowing mylar over insulation in the
Southern Ohio part of the country?

Posted by: Ohio Dan at January 25, 2013 12:23 AM (JKNDp)


I'd be very leery of "new" things in the insulation side of the world, in that they very often have odd side-effects. One of the more common is mold. It seems that having big fluffy insulation where air is trapped but still moving slowly wicks moisture out over a variety of temperatures and humidities, but having insulation where air is trapped completely tends to build up moisture on surfaces as warm moist air is cooled.

You may want to chew on some of the stuff here: http://ornl.gov/sci/roofs+walls/insulation/ins_06.html

531 cthulhu is right. Any time you're messing around with "super-insulation" or air-tight, hermetic enclosures, you absolutely have to keep all moisture inside the heated living area. Visquene poly sheet behind the wallboard is the hillbilly way to accomplish this. Even at that, if you use, for instance, wood-fiber ceiling tiles, they need to have a kilz/binz waterproof primer to be sure they won't absorb enough moisture to bear fruit.

I was bitterly amused back in the 70's energy panic, when govt pamphlets told everyone to install multi-pane airtight windows, and then they came along a season later and told you to leave them open 1/8" for air circulation. The jackoffs did not know shit. They were guessing. And spending your money.

I did all that energy-saving stuff (well, all that made sense) and got pretty good paybacks. But I never once qualified for their great huge tax credits. Every once in a while, I get one of these snot-nosed greenies between my teeth, and I don't let up until the bones stop cracking.

533 Buzzsaw, that was my rational. The attic can get to 120 degrees easily on a summer day but that heat is what also drives the venting system. The house is generally around 70 degrees. Not as much heat to reflect back into the home. Their rational is to blow in bits of mylar which will still allow air to permeat through it and not cause mold. Dust also reduces the effectiveness of a radiant barrier. When they blow it in they say they average 14 layers of mylar. Still, if dust gets on the top layer, heat will not be reflected out. Sounds like we are all on the same page.

Posted by: Ohio Dan at January 25, 2013 01:01 AM (JKNDp)

534
If you have normal attic insulation, you could just cover it with cheap mylar blankets.

There are three types of heat transfer: 1) radiant, 2) conduction and 3) convection.

Reflective surfaces only help with radiant heat transfer.

For conductive heat transfer you want an insulating material (thermal barrier) between the two surfaces. Something with lots of dead air space works well.

As for convective heat transfer a thermal barrier is also the best solution because convective heat transfer is basically conductive heat transfer with a gas (typically air) as the transfer medium. The only real differences between conductive and convective heat transfer is that you have an intervening material that transfers the heat and since it's a gas it moves (hot air rises), so you have to take that into account.

Mylar sheets and mylar bubble wrap seem to work quite well in reflecting heat (away or back in) ... but blown-in mylar sounds like a money-making idea (just not for you).

Click over to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_conductivity
to get some information.

The .svg of thermal conductivities is interesting. Air, and implicitly non-moving air, is an excellent insulator. This means that having as lots of trapped air between that which is hot and that which is cold is one of the better ways to keep heat where it is desired and away from where it is not. A vacuum with reflective barriers on each side is better, but the cost ...

547 When I first move in here 18 years ago It was always freezing in my basement.I crawl all over the house finding little leaks. Caulk her and insulate there. I eventuallynoticed an open 6" pipe leading outside. I checked and it was a fresh air feed to my furnace. Of course it was open, whether the furnace was running or not. I jammed a pillow in it 18 years ago and we haven't died from carbon monoxide poison yet.

139 Rommel's PzKw Mk IIIs had radios so the commanders could easily relay orders.

The French were still using little flags to signal commands. Which meant the TC had to stay exposed, in battle.
-------------------------------------
Rommel's division was using captured Czech tanks, actually - the Panzer 38(t). Nice reliable tanks, though not quite as heavily armored as the Panzer III. For the French, I'd favor the Somua S35, as it wasarmored heavily enough to freak out the Germans, had the same turret as the B-1bis (but not the hull-mounted 75mm gun),and was much faster. And it didn't break down nearly as often.

Of course, the best tanks during the early stages of the warbelonged to the Soviets. The T-34 was probably the best all around tank untilaround late 1942, and the German Panther looks suspiciously like an enlargedand over-engineered (it's German, after all) T-34. The T-34's armor was comparable to theFrench B-1bis and the British Matilda,it's speed was much higher, andit had a much more powerful gun mounted in the turret. The Soviet KV-seriesheavy tanks were even worse. Reportedly a single Soviet KV heavy tank got onto the supply line of one of the Panzer Divisions in 1941, and basically shut the line down until the tank finally broke down a week later.

559 New questions are being raised surrounding the murder of Chandra Levy, the case that rocked official Washington and much of the nation in the summer of 2001 because of allegations she had been having an affair with then-Rep. Gary Condit (D-Calif.).

Closed hearings have been held to review information that may impeach the credibility of a witness who testified at the trial of Ingmar Guandique. In 2010, nearly a decade after Levy disappeared, Guandique was convicted of murdering her. He was already in prison for other crimes, and was sentenced to 60 years in prison in Levy's death. Now a case largely built on circumstantial evidence and witness testimony appears to be facing serious questions.

I think you are confusing the billionaire boys club with the mendez brothers. the mendez brothers whacked their parents for the money. the billionaire boys club were a bunch or rich kids led by some con man sort who tried to start some sort of hedge fund / slash private equity fund, lost all of their money, got mixed up with another con man and eventually killed him and one of the kids dads.

They melted in a fast car. Why was that? The sense of surrender to the
machine, to the man whose strong, sunburned hands were on the wheel? But
it was always so. You turned the car into a wood after ten minutes at
150 and you would almost have to lift the girl out and lay her down on
the moss, her limbs would be so trembling and soft."

Witness and jury tampering. The brothers are in for life without parole, so things worked out eventually. But for a time it looked like Abramson was going to pull it off.

BTW -- by radiant heat transfer I mean hot surfaces, like a light bulb. The whole thing gets tricky because you're often dealing with two or even three types of heat transfer at the same time.

Think of an old fashioned radiator. It has a hot surface that radiates heat but it's also built to heat up a lot of air to maximize convective heat transfer. And if it's close enough to a surface to warm it with radiant heat, the heated surface will then conduct that heat away through conductive heating.

So think about the physics involved. I doubt mylar strips would do much good in an attic, however, if it was used to coat foam or something else exposed to radiant heat it would help some.

One thing to stay away from is the mylar covered foam boards. The deal with them is the "dead air" space in them isn't really air, it's some refrigerant or other gas with a better insulating value than plain air. The problem is that it off-gasses over the years so the R value drops with time. Eventually it will be little or no better than foam with plain dead air. It may sound good because of its initial R value but it's expensive and will eventually be no better than cheaper air filled foam.

And as someone above mentioned you also have to think about moisture. Years ago there was a big fad of blowing crap like shredded newspaper in between the studs of existing walls. Over the years it would absorb moisture, killing its insulating qualities and making it a great place for mold to grow. It would also expand and warp the wall material that had softened from absorbing the moisture that the insulation had absorbed. Lots of nice old houses got ruined that way.

Be leery of anything blown into enclosed spaces.

Posted by: junior at January 25, 2013 01:13 AM

The KV is often overlooked and underrated. The thing was a beast that could roam the battlefield with near impunity. The Red Army fucked up with it, by not using it properly, until late in the game. They were hell bent on maintaining an "infantry tank" type role for it, which by and large kept most of them away from the tank on tank fights where they were most needed. The Red Army was married to speed in it's tank corps and when they tried to include the KV in the ranks with the T34's, T26's and BT's they got frustrated and threw the baby out with the bathwater.

When they finally woke up and put KV's into independent heavy regiments, to get the most out of them, they proved to be a much bigger problem than even the T34. It resulted in the Tiger tank. Also, the russians had a bad habit of sticking just any Ivan into the KV's and not training the crews to wring the most out of actual campaign turner. The KV crews (again until the Red Army woke up and took the KV seriously as a specialist tank killer) were prone to bail out when taking hits, assuming it would brew up like a light, or medium. The Germans would machine gun them escaping from a perfectly good tank. The hits they were taking would barley scratch the paint, let alone destroy it.

[cautiously] What KIND of BBQ sauces? Home-made or store-bought? Regional, or ethnic? For marinading, wet cooking, dry cooking, or as an after-cooking condiment?

614 Shocking movie opening:

Scene of Asian troops under Taiwanese flag ambushing US troops.

Turns out they are here to support democratic rebels who are opposing a tyrannical US government. (many years in the future.)

cool opening scene no?

Now come on?
I would do nothing but home based BBQ sauce, though I do add some J.D to the finish and I pump up the garlic/shallots with a bit of "Orange Rind" aka SOL-CAL finish when doing my ribs!

Yes, I Be a BBQ MASTER!!!

By comparison, when we have the fish club over for BBQ, it's usually chicken bagged with Kraft "Mesquite" flavor overnight, and thrown on the grill. But when we do BBQ ourselves, it's sometimes wokked with purchased Korean BBQ, sometimes slow roasted, with on-the-side purchased BBQ sauce, and sometimes popped in a slow cooker with secret (read: made up on-the-spot) ingredients. Each has its own appeal.

The line's from Moby Dick.

"Towards thee I roll, thou all-destroying but unconquering whale; to the
last I grapple with thee; from hell’s heart I stab at thee; for hate’s
sake I spit my last breath at thee. Sink all coffins and all hearses to
one common pool! and since neither can be mine, let me then tow to
pieces, while still chasing thee, though tied to thee, thou damned
whale! Thus, I give up the spear!"

629 Her lips were red, her looks were free,190

Her locks were yellow as gold:

Her skin was as white as leprosy,

The Nightmare Life-in-Death was she,

Who thicks man's blood with cold.

630 An orphan's curse would drag to hell

A spirit from on high;

But oh! more horrible than that

Is the curse in a dead man's eye!

Seven days, seven nights, I saw that curse,

And yet I could not die.

631 The helmsman steer'd, the ship moved on;

Yet never a breeze up-blew;

The mariners all 'gan work the ropes,

Where they were wont to do;

They raised their limbs like lifeless tools—

We were a ghastly crew.

632 I took the oars: the Pilot's boy,

Who now doth crazy go,

Laugh'd loud and long, and all the while

His eyes went to and fro.

"Ha! ha!" quoth he, "full plain I see

The Devil knows how to row."

633 The Mariner, whose eye is bright,

Whose beard with age is hoar,

Is gone: and now the Wedding-Guest

Turn'd from the bridegroom's door.



He went like one that hath been stunn'd,

And is of sense forlorn:

A sadder and a wiser man

He rose the morrow morn.

637 Demonstrations in Cairo today. One guy had a really good sign which starte, "Obama , you idiot.." and went on to say Egyptians did not support the Muslim Brotherhood.

I follow some Egyptians on Twitter which is how I found out about this demonstration. I imagine that will be the only place you hear about it.
