6 All Your Children Are Belong To Us

Defenders of the status quo in educations can oft paint truly horrific scenes of children being harmed, brainwashed, or left behind due to “evil” “Reich-wing” conservatives; typically the proffered villains are the evil “corporations” since that is what corporations do, right? An article over at the extreme leftist blog “Common Dreams” blames ALEC for pushing vouchers that allow poor and minority students to break from a failed system, for pushing testing to objectively find out if students are even learning in the classroom, or allowing schools to outsource some services in order to not waste money on unionized public employees. But above all else, the Edu-crat establishment is fearful that by loosing their monopoly on our children, they will not longer be able to warp and manipulate their young minds. Their honest claim can be summed up as “All Your Children Are Belong To Us”

79 So, I just got an old DS game used. "Feel the Magic XY <3 XX". One of the early DS games that made use of the unique mic and touch screen controls.

One of the game's main menu options is to play with a female model. Use the stylus to touch her hand or feet, and she'll react like you stepped on her foot or pinched her fingers.

This is where Japanese perversion kicks in - you can trigger some other reactions by touching her chest or her crotch. I feel rather dirty now ...

Thanks. Her mom is 75, her dad died when he was 74. We are all fragile beings whose span relative to the Earth is a twinkle of an eye.

I pray she keeps as much of her faculties for as long as she can because her and her deceased husband's support was vital to our family every time wife was in harm's way.

If any Moron is blessed enough to have both parents or ideally both sets give them a wink.

The clock never runs backwards, and the passage of time is always a gamble.

The pathetic Ewok who runs this site is long in bed, where he masturbates furiously to Megyn Kelly's stolen garbage, or to illegally downloaded German porn. His minions, the so-called co-bloggers, recycle stale content from elsewhere and dangle it in front of Moron eyes like shiny toys in front of a parakeet. This is done in exchange for cheap vodka and writing credit. Meanwhile the Ewok spent the crazy blog money on sex toys.

So, losers, pathetic lost souls who have never known the touch of a woman, how does it feel knowing your life's work to "conserve" a system of antiquated values and racist hate has been wasted? The correctly thinking persons of all colors will inherit the Earth. We have already inherited the United States, since your kind was not strong enough to keep it.

Well I need to focus on my job some. I'm slowly getting back on the horse and doing *some* work but not as heavy. Wife and I are moving to South Carolina, and I try to leave her when my kvetching and angst get counter productive.

We lurk, wife is hesitant to post because she is shy at heart and active duty.

If I post I am dying to talk to Panetta face to face it is one thing, were wife to be known to be posting that it is quite another. She was watching him give his charming monologue that she turned off the tube and just stared. As a "good soldier" or someone trying to be she knows she can't go nuts about his games.

She got (on paper) a 1.7% raise BUT the tircare increase, the dental increase, AND the resumption of full Soc Sec w/holding(which I've gone on about at length as being the DUMBEST 'tax break' ever going) she wound up with a ~-.2% "raise"

Next FY she will be bearing another Tricare hike I guarantee it.

I thought it was based on a real writer of letters-to-the-editor of one of the smaller NE rags that always published her dozens of wild, anti-Bush diatribes.

Agreed on the Hollywood thing and choosing parts. I've always felt that Carrey is best suited to being part of a larger thing (didn't seem to help in that Batman movie, though),in a support part etc. Which is a major factor in making D+D work (yeah I know... debatable). But, he got "big" early and has had starring vehicles since.

I've told my buddies to get to my pad if the shit actually does hit the fan. my neighbors seem like good people, but don't know how they'll be in a worst case scenario. The other thing I would be interested in hearing from fellow morons is what to do after said event occurs. you can only hold out so long before either you run out of food/water or ammo. I keep going back to the book One Second After, in which there is no happy ending for anyone and asking myself just what would my long term plan be for me and my family.

Ditto on running.

I'm not bugging out anywhere. If things really go south, I'm staying put. There's a big freshwater lake just a few blocks from my house, so I can get all the water I need if that goes out.
I trust a fair amount of my neighbors, like my neighbor the former Marine across the street, whose wife has MS and he's not going anywhere.
A guy down the street is a former SEAL and pretty squirrley, but I hear he has an "arsenal" in the basement gun safe (one of my other looney tune neighbors was appalled about THAT!).

304 272 Secret Squirrel's Ballz Und Sheft,

Rioters that are in a mass frenzy tend to move at the set rate of walking an average walking pace for a riot is about 2 miles and hour.....

so it then breaks down to a psychological exercise in how long the riot maintains cohesion and intensity. Looting slows down the progress but looters can also move in organized packs. Vehicle mobility is a concern and the motivation of the crowd psychology and group dynamic can increase range of action.

The deeper you are in that radius from an urban center the more likely you are to have advanced warning of the type of activity you are likely facing.

Take Indy metro for example, if you look at a map of south Indy proper you'll see that going along 65 southbound you have Greenwood with malls and several stores as well as a residential band with a 5 mile radius of the city, continuing southbound you next have Whiteland a more rural and true suburban setup with less lootable retail areas but many dwellings....

I am in Franklin IN ~ 31 miles from the starting area of a big riot or crime wave. I'll face the more municipal that Whiteland less than greenwood local threat but am within a 2-3 day operational radius of the greater Indy proper population potential.

Absent an organized defense plan or a sense of interlocking neighborhood/LE action I would be tempted to make my way southward.

It all boils down to situational awareness and having multiple options available so if the situation warrants it you can unass the AO if need be.

I should not have dispareged bug out bags since everyone's situation is different. And when I look at the things I do to prepare for an emergency the only difference is it's in tubs instead of a bag.

Good points. This is one of the reasons I moved out of the city. I've told my friends that live in Seattle they had best get to the waterfront and commandeer a boat and drive south or to one of the islands, as Seattle will go nuts with liberal wankers getting killed by gangbangers and cops nowhere to be found (because most of them don't live in Seattle). Again, I hope and pray none of this happens, but as the days trudge on, I become more pessimistic. I guess we call that reality.

It's a variable but you're taught rules of thumb on unit speed in the boy scouts and army....

run an experiment watch footage of a riot...


calculate based on how much looting they're doing versus their determination to move to a point and watch what happens....

I'll try to find one....

it can be higher, it may be slower but ~2mph is average.

You can see mob psychology even at the flashmob level.

Piece on studies in UK about riots...


http://tinyurl.com/3uckkh7

Al Guardian piece (sympathetic) on Riot Psychology

My theory on it takes the rioters if acting in a SHTF seni-organized militia mode as being as mobile as Category C troops less some organizational time.

Average adult walking speed is 2.8-3.4 MPH but a riot will by nature be a non-disciplined or rather loosely disciplined crowd event...marching without a formal formation....this necessitates slowdowns and whipping by leadership subtle or subconcious to move the mass in a direction and maintain cohesion with hectoring....

the more organized the rioters are the greater the radius they can move in.

I'll have some links to youtubes of rioters moving in an urban setting unimpeded and impeded.

322 Don't you hate it when an actor in different roles is pretty much always playing, you know, his shtick. Robin Williams (with some exceptions), Nick Cage (wife's excellent suggestion). At the end of Liar, Liar, there's a scene where Carrey's character, rehabilitated, is with his wife and kid, and for just a moment the Jim Carrey face is gone and he looks like a decent human being. If he could play that guy...

As I recall, Yes Man was pretty good. Except, as stated, Jim playing Jim.

Oh noes! Per IMDB, he's in KickAss 2. (Come to think of it, Cage was almost tolerable in KA1. Plus, he got horribly offed, so maybe Carrey will be, too.)

My theory is not a hard and fast rule...I am not saying it is 'word of God" I am saying I have been studying the issue off and on since 1993.

It was an LP/Security concern for the contracts I worked in downtown Dayton which has had riots and was a sensible concern for Y2K in El Paso TX and in hurricane alley as Katrina proved.

Rita had no looting in our area....but the cops and locals made it understood..."we'll kill you."

Anyway, can someone advise this yankee what he should do with all this bounty?

437 First time I had smoked hog jowl was when I picked it up at a Food Lion grocery store while vacationing with relatives in Virginia Beach.

It was marketed as "Hog Jowl Bacon."

My impression, upon trying it was: "Do you like bacon, but find it just isn't greasy or salty enough for you? Then this shiat's for you!"

Does anyone have a recipe or 10 for corned beef; the pre-cooked beef that comes in a can just like Spam?

I realize that it can be eaten just out of the can, but I'd rather make it a bit more palatable.

Will it grill or barbecue well? I was thinking of grilling with lots of onions, red bell peppers and maybe some garlic.

I thought about that, but I'm trying to avoid any meal that requires using water for things other than drinking, or extended cooking times. 2-3 hours of boiling requires a lot of energy.

I live less than 2 miles from both the Hayward and Calaveas Faults, so keeping a week of food on hand makes good sense. I also figure that trying out various foods that will keep for extended times also makes sense.


446 BignJames

...the fat that binds it will most likely melt and it will fall thru the grill.

The can says slicing is easier if the slices are chilled first, so I figured that either the grain is the wrong way or there would be a lot of fat. The can does indeed suggest a lot of fat.

Perhaps frying it, like fajitas, is a plan. I figure the taste is "beef", and the fat really adds taste, but the amount of fat may make "acquiring a taste" for corned beef just a bit difficult.

Posted by: Arbalest at February 07, 2013 02:24 AM (KnKxu)

453 In my experience with canned corned beef, there ain't no grain left in that meat, it's all frickin' pureed in with a ton of beef fat.

Delicious, yes, but no structural integrity.

Bear in mind, no one in my family has a problem with ear wax, thoughI will confess to occasionally using a Q-tip after a shower. Anyway, to use this product, one lays on their side, inserts the wax tube in their ear and sets it ON FIRE! Clearly the object makes a draft, similar to a good fireplace, and sucks the none existent earwax out.Seriously that's what they sold to the females of my clan.

Thanks AOP. I've always had BAD LUCK with canned meat, certainly straight from the can, no heating.

To some extent, I'm looking for additional menu items that I can simply heat up, grill or fry on a small propane or Coleman stove in under 10 minutes, and that maintain my same standard of living.

Mercifully, C-rations are long gone, but they had merit: the can could be opened, then heated up, and (given the correct can) the results eaten. One can was enough calories for someone doing a lot of moving.

477 To some extent, I'm looking for additional menu items that I can simply heat up, grill or fry on a small propane or Coleman stove in under 10 minutes, and that maintain my same standard of living.

-Canned corned beef hash will do the job. But it's better to add in potatoes and/or peppers and onions or something ... it's hella greasy all on its own.

Spam may fit the bill better for you.

Depends on the price point. I don't buy this kind of stuff often, so I don't really know what's typical. At the grocery store I was just at tonight, a 12 oz can of corned beef was $3.99, apparently some sort of sale price. That works out to $5.33/pound.

Seems a little pricey to me. Especially as a bunch o' years ago I remember buying that same 12oz can for $1.25 (admittedly, a huge bargain, which I simply couldn't pass up, so I bought a few cans).

Posted by: Lewis at February 07, 2013 03:10 AM (UB1pV)

478 Arb, corned beef can be eaten right from the can, but it is greasy and salty. Some way of mixing it with some carbs and veggies makes it a lot more palatable. You can also buy canned corned beef hash. Neither it nor the plain corned beef is particularly cheap.

Also look at the canned ham in those egg-shaped tins. Some of it is very tasty, and it's not pureed meat. Actually has texture. And there is canned bacon, and canned butter on the market.

Canned goods will keep for years, but they are kind of expensive for what you get, considering a large part of what's in there is water. And they are kind of heavy and bulky if you have to carry them with you. But they certainly have a place in one's emergency preparedness plans. Need no refrigeration, dust and rodent-proof, withstand flooding, etc.

I suspect we might be shopping at the same grocery chain.


AOP: Part of this exercise is to find out what canned items are worth having on-hand. I'm not worried about even a partial economic collapse (but CA is really hurting, and there are signs that things could get real stupid), but the geologic clock says at least one of the faults around me should move within the next 2-5 years, and an 8.0 is entirely possible.

Then there's the fuel cost: 2 or so hours of food prep is a lot of fuel. 5-10 minutes to bring a can of chili to a high-simmer makes much more sense. Throw in some grilling time for onions, bell peppers, etc... or maybe stir-fry. I figure a propane cylinder might do 20 of these meals.

1 can of corned beef or ham looks like enough meat for one person for 3 days of hard physical labor, or 7-10 days of office work ... provided the stuff can be acceptably prepared and the remaining portion can be refrigerated.

I expected the grease, but some can be drained and some can be fried out. The water is a small problem, and I suppose part of the price for a can of meat that will stay edible till mid-2017. The salt is a problem; how much will drain out with the water or fry out?

Perhaps hash is the plan. Perhaps I'll try molding strips, frying them and seeing if good comes of it ...
