13 How evil genius would it be if Dorner had killed someone else and then planted the body there for the police to find? The body's charred and destroyed beyond recognition, it would take days for them to confirm anything. Meanwhile, he's already sitting on the beach somewhere, earning 20 percent.

20 The network has badly stumbled recently, hitting its three lowest viewership levels for a traditional television season in the past four weeks, the Nielsen ratings company said. The only exception came the week NBC televised the Pro Bowl.

Wow. When televising the Pro Bowl is the "bright spot" in your lineup, wouldn't that be a signal that you're doing something really, really wrong? Don't they have those shareholders and stuff over there at "the parent company"?

39 - "Debt Crisis Is Nowhere Near Being Solved"

Along similar lines "death still ruins your entire weekend."

Leave it to the Internet-media cabal to master the obvious to the point of self-parody.

- "War On The Young Hits Charm City"

Definitely. The Crescent City too. The City of Angels. The Rose City. The Queen City. The Big Apple. The Windy City. The Emerald City. And every place in between.

For kids under age 20 unemployment nearly is at Grapes of Wrath levels. And that doesn't even tell the full story, because so many of them are not counted for the unemployment rate, since they're not bothering to search for work.

Of course the irony will be lost on that demographic. And in '16 an overwhelming majority of them reflexively will vote against the Republican and in favor of whomever the Dems nominate. Again, without grasping the irony.

LPGA rookie Daniela Holmqvist was participating in a pre-qualifier for the ISPS Handa Australian Open at Royal Canberra Golf Club in Yarralumla, Australia. On the fourth hole Holmqvist felt a sharp pain in her ankle, and she looked down to see a Black Widow spider on her leg. Holmqvist swatted the bug away, but before she knew it she was doubled over in pain.

Her caddies told her that the venom from a Black Widow can sometimes kill a child in half an hour, so Holmqvist knew she had to act fast. With her leg swelling, Holmqvist reached into her pocket and pulled out a tee. She quickly cut open her skin and squeezed the venom out.

Amazingly, Holmqvist played on through her pain, shooting a 74 on the day. Medics followed her around the course to make sure she didn't pass out.

58 (ABC) President Obama brought his agenda back to the basics in the first State
of the Union address of his second term, with a stripped-down economic
prescription that bore the scars of four years marked by frustration.

The White House promised a fiery speech on jobs and the economy.
It was expected to be a progressive vision for a second term, built on
pillars of American manufacturing, innovation, and education.

That was small ball. Perhaps the president can't play any other game on
the economy, not with a Republican-controlled House and a divided Senate
that aren't inclined to approve any new spending measures, at all,
period.





Poor widdle Barry, those mean Republicans are going to let him unleash his grand plans for the country. He just can't fix the economy or save the country because of those meanies.

But the flaw in this plan is that they would all be shunned by the glitterati. Their social interactions would suffer terribly from not being near all the pretty (and mindless) luminaries.

The Media system is one large herd. If someone tries to get out of the herd, the rest of the herd will turn on them. It's way past time to cull the herd by dragging down the weak.

88 Listening to Glen Beck talk about "growing his company". Why doesn't he open his company up to small investors via a kickstarter. He then avoids Wall Street and still allows everyday average Americans to have a stake in the company. If the company grows exponentially maybe your small investment could ultimately fund your retirement. Bypassing the Wall Street mess, completely.

Rock Bands and game developers have started to use places like kickstarter to avoid the corporate middle man and all the trappings of the big game companies and the record labels.

They're about to look at the Fred Silverman era as "the good times" the way things are going.

IMHO, they've been coasting ever since the Thursday lineup of Friends, Seinfeld, and ER made them the #1 network in the mid-90s, with them being unable to create a lot of hits to replace those shows when they were put out to pasture.

Posted by: King Missile at February 13, 2013 09:53 AM (e0xKF)

101 Completely O/T (can you even do that on the morning dump?)

So, y'all know I'm getting my CHL (class in 10 days), and I have to say- as a newbie to some of the minutia of concealed carry, it's sometimes hard to find what you need, often because (as Don Rumsfeld might say) of not knowing what you don't know.

Case in point: the mechanics of concealed carry. I'm looking at various concealed holsters, and I'm sort of at a loss. I know I want a behind the back holster. One, I'm a pretty big guy, so I think that'll give me the best concealment when I'm not wearing a jacket (I go for the untucked button-down shirt look). Two, I don't like things touching my legs (in general). I don't even keep my wallet or keys in my pocket unless I have to.

Now, it looks like my options here come in three varieties: nylon "one-size-fits-several" holsters, leather holsters, or plastic holsters. All of these come as Inside the Waistband or Outside the Waistband varieties.

I don't like the nylon ones because I'm concerned about how they'll fall on the nexus of security (I don't want the gun just falling out, after all) and convenience (I don't want to waste time fumbling with it, either).

I like the leather ones, but the cheapest leather I can find is pushing $100.00, and I'd druther not spend that.

I like the security-convenience nexus of the plastic ones, but they all seem more bulky than I think would be useful.

Now, the correct answer, of course, would be to take my handgun, fit it into several of these options, and try them out. Put them on my belt and see how they fit, how easy they are to draw, etc. Second best would be having an experienced gunowner walking me through the pros and cons, and loaning me a holster to try out for a day or so (around my own home, since it would be illegal to carry concealed outside the house until I've officially got my permit). As it is, I'm just having to kind of guess, and hope I'm not wasting my money. I'm a cheapskate. I hate wasting money.

Which brings me to my point (if you've followed this far): how much of a market do you think there is for this kind of information? I can see a gun-store specializing in concealed-carry. Not just by providing CHL classes, but also carrying a line of clothing designed for concealed carry, having a variety of holsters that potential customers can try on to see how they like them, etc. Anyone else think that might be a good idea?

I can't remember where I found it but I was reading a really interesting article on kickstarter and corporate governance. Since kickstarter is starting to take off outside the arts realm, it raises all kinds of fascinating issues concerning who is the actual owner of a business when there's fractional contributions outside of traditional shares format. There is going to be some nasty nasty litigation about this quite soon, I bet.

120 LPGA rookie Daniela Holmqvist was participating in a
pre-qualifier for the ISPS Handa Australian Open at Royal Canberra Golf
Club in Yarralumla, Australia. On the fourth hole Holmqvist felt a
sharp pain in her ankle, and she looked down to see a Black Widow spider
on her leg. Holmqvist swatted the bug away, but before she knew it she
was doubled over in pain.

Her caddies told her that the venom
from a Black Widow can sometimes kill a child in half an hour, so
Holmqvist knew she had to act fast. With her leg swelling, Holmqvist
reached into her pocket and pulled out a tee. She quickly cut open her
skin and squeezed the venom out.

Amazingly, Holmqvist played on
through her pain, shooting a 74 on the day. Medics followed her around
the course to make sure she didn't pass out.

138 Allen G, check out Sneaky Pete holsters

Somebody suggested Panther Concealment, and that's probably the way I'll go. The point was more general though. It could be applied to other things besides the holster itself.

What clothes do you wear/how do you dress to look a) professional and b) not like you're carrying a gun?

Different holsters fit better on different size belts, and most folks (at least most guys) have two or more belts (I have a dress belt in black, one in brown, and a work/casual belt): do I need three different holsters?

I want casual clothing that's also good for concealed carry, but I don't want to go around in big, baggy shirts all the time. My CC weapon is too big for an inside the pocket or an ankle holster- what are my options?

And so forth.

I'm thinking this store would also employ (or have available) a tailor who works custom fitting clothes to help with concealed carry.

143 If it's not Dorner's body, then I'm sure this was all just a film trailer...

Rumors of Sidney Lumet's death were greatly exaggerated.

...

I'm seeing a lot of preemptive bemoaning, but really, you don't have to worry about "Hollywood" making a saint's-life movie about this guy. Lumet's the only one who had the artistic skills to have done it. Consider:

It's a go. OK! First script outline...and whoever wants to make the "antihero" version of the story realizes he has to put a scene in it where the protagonist kills a woman who's only in the story to get killed--and get killed as somebody's daughter. Nope.

Lumet could have found a way over that hump while keeping the audience/character bond intact (though strained and weird). Nobody alive can.

Maybe Cronenberg. But he wouldn't. The story's too boring, has no metaphorical charge to it.

Or William Friedkin. But he's dead, too. Artistically.

Unless Tarantino uses a version of this guy's story as a coatrack to hang a tribute to those directors on--a Dog Day Afternoon/Rampage/Videodrome mashup--there's not going to be a movie.

(And he'd make the dude gay. His manifesto was basically a list of celebrities he likes. That's gay.)

144 My dad was born in 1906 and, believe it or not, got drafted in 1942.
He was a rock solid individual (still my role model).

In 1920 he hopped on a train and traveled to his uncle's place where he learned how to ranch. By 1927, he was riding an Indian motorcycle joining wheat harvest from Texas to Canada. Census puts him in Chicago in 1930. In 1937, he was back in town and was friends with my grandfather, who shot himself in the foot accidentally while bootlegging as a side job for extra cash -- he worked for the railroad.

Since my dad "grew up" as a cowboy in the '20s and "matured" in WWII, the article on the twenties mentally fills in some gaps I've never actually been able to connect. I may have to read up on that period.

145 Leftist canard I really hate: "you only disagree with the president because he's black (and you're a racist.)" That pisses me off, too. I've given up trying to list for them all the reasons why I disagree with the Preezy because there are so damn many. Instead, when i hear that bullshit, I just say, "The color of the man's skin is the one thing I DON'T hate about him."

I tell them I hate his card carrying commie white half of the family far more than the alcoholic bigamist black asshole marxist father he worships. After all, the black asshole had little to do with his upbringing, it was the well-off white family that raised him to be the anti-American piece of shit we all know and loathe.

147 Regarding coffee gear, a single observation (and one wimpy lament): once your beans are roasted, you need to grind them close to the time when you extract their goodness. For backpacking, obviously, you need a grinder that fits in your pack. Everything else follows from this.

Bacon used to be a "camp food" and I'm pretty sure they didn't use dry ice. Not sure how well it would work for backpacking, because I'm pretty sure you'd need the whole (or at least a big chunk) of the bacon (the cut, not sliced bacon) for it to cure properly.

191 Case in point: the mechanics of concealed carry. I'm looking at various concealed holsters, and I'm sort of at a loss. I know I want a behind the back holster. One, I'm a pretty big guy, so I think that'll give me the best concealment when I'm not wearing a jacket (I go for the untucked button-down shirt look).


Allen, as a 14 year veteran of a Tx CHL, trust me when I say that no one concealed carry mode is the best. They all have their shortcomings. Behind the back? Great concealment until you sit down and shove the gun into your spine. Especially in a car seat.
Inside the Waist Band? Probably the most comfortable with less concealment/leading to more awareness.

Actually, I don't have a problem with that. Maybe not the "put you in my novel" bit, but you're asking people for money. It's only right that you offer them something of value in return.

For instance: Reaper Miniatures here in North Texas creates new lines of minis from time to time. When they do, they'll often do a kick-starter: $X buy in gets you something (usually some of the new minis). $Y buy in (where: Y > X) gets you something else (usually what X gets you, and then some).

Real "angel investors" essentially buy your company. They're hoping for an ROI in terms of money. People helping you through kick-starter also want some ROI, though they're normally willing to accept a lot less than an actual investor would.

I'm comfortable enough with the choices I'm making regarding my concealed carry. What I'm asking is if the Horde thinks a business- specifically a gun store/firing range- that chose as its niche catering to concealed carry customers- including lots of help/advice for new CHL licensees, to just making sure they carry a full range of equipment for those with more experience- would be worth looking into and maybe starting.

226 Mindful Webworker Daily Doodle for today, linked in nic, is a lopsided freehand sketch of Nixon drawn during his 1973 I am not a crook speech. But the line I wrote down was Nixon saying, "consider them guilty until proven guilty." Later, a member of the press brought the misstatement to the Pres's attention, and Nixon thanked him. Even with the hideously anti-Nixon press, it was a different era. The gaffe was just a gaffe. Now, that line about not being a crook.... still makes me laugh.

While my wife gets ready for work she likes to watch/listen to the local morning news show that features some late 20 somethings who are libs. I know this because periodically I will wake up and yell at the TV. This morning however, they were actually talking more about Rubio's speech than TFG's. Yeah they laughed about the water thing, but then they brought up his tweet that I think had a pic of a water bottle or something and they really laughed at that. The thing is, they weren't laughing in MSNBC way, they were acting kinda excited talking about him. Have no idea what that means, but there was nothing negative said about Rubio.

283 Chris Muir does this with his "Day By Day" cartoons. He'll offer several levels of donation packages, with the highest package offering a custom toon or appearance by the donor.
Posted by: EC at February 13, 2013 10:36 AM (GQ8sn)



This is where the litigation is going to come in with kickstarter. Muir is very clear that what you are doing is donating and then he's doing the equivalent of the PBS tote bag for donation levels. You aren't buying into anything, it's explicitly a donation. There's not much room for confusion there.


Kickstarter is not a donation. I am giving funds to a person/group/company in order for them to create a product that they are going to turn around and sell. It's not a donation, it's some type of investment. Maybe. Possibly. Take the miniatures example above. If you put in x dollars you will receive y product. Well, how should that be classified? A purchase? Some type of investment? Is it the equivalent of joining a fan club and paying x dollars to receive a calendar and a download and advance access to tickets?

Where it gets incredibly murky are the people trying to use kickstarter as venture capital for a business. That slams into all kinds of state and federal regs that people are just now starting to consider in relation to kickstarter.


I have no idea how all of that will play out, but it is pushing the envelope of what is a donation, what is an investment, what is a fan club and what is venture capital. I'm interested to see how it all plays out.

---I would think white wine with chips and salsa though it could depend on the type of salsa. Red wine would seem to be appropriate if watching your son roasting in a mountain hut. But, really, it just comes down to personal preference. That's the beauty of a free market system and an a la carte menu.

I am not a coffee snob. What makes coffee taste good is the circumstances attending its consumption. Grounds-y coffee made in an enamel percolator on a Coleman stove tastes just great when you awaken after a night on hard ground in a cold tent in the mountains.
At home, I use cone-style filter coffee maker with a stainless-mesh reusable filter; works just fine. The wellsite shacks at work are provided, usually, with basket-filter coffee makers, this one here being a Black Decker. (wonders if the ampersand will render) And, sin of sins, I microwave the left-over coffee the next day, and actually enjoy it! Drinking one as I type.
This particular bag of coffee, I bought for about three dollars and change at a supermarket in Granada, Nicaragua, in December. It's not bad at all. Sad to report, though, that the rum I bought at the same time, and brought home as my duty-free allotment, all evaporated in a prolonged and tragic accident.

372 With regards to Rubio's State of the Union response, I find it yo be worth noting that we have also been given a false choice on Immigration, between the status quo or bending over and taking it.

Social services are strained to the breaking point, and one of the reasons for that is that a large group of consumers of said services are not paying for them in taxes. If the law were enforced, this strain would dissapear. Not only that, but employers would have to employ Americans at American wages. While the cost of some goods and services would rise, millions of jobs would be opened to Americans during an economic crisis, and the new taxpayers created by such actions would serve to shore up the system.

We can accept the death of party, financial solvency, and way of life inherent to Amnesty, or we can enforce the law and put America on a more prosperous trajectory with the only losers being lawbreakers and those who have benefitted from flouting the law.

Why aren't we making the obvious choice?
