Poisoned Names

Some names are mostly just fads - their popularity quickly rises and just as quickly falls. But then there are other names that are steadily growing until something (or someone) drives their popularity into the ground i.e. poisons them. And in fact Hilary seems to become the most poisoned name ever.

"Hilary", though, was clearly different than these flash-in-the-pan names. The name was growing in popularity (albeit not monotonically) for years. So to remove all of the fad names from the list, I chose only the names that were in the top 1000 for over 20 years, and updated the graph (note that I changed the range on the y-axis).

I think it's pretty safe to say that, among the names that were once stable and then had a sudden drop, "Hilary" is clearly the most poisoned.

I can attest to this. Long before I ever heard of the Clintons I always thought Hilary was great girl's name that was uncommon but nice-sounding. Then 1992 happened and I scratched it off my list - permanently. Maybe in 100 years or so it'll get another shot.

Also I predict a glut of strippers named Ashanti in about ten years.

An Interesting Theory About Obama's Birth Certificate

From a Bookworm reader:

I worked in adoptions social work in both Maryland and Tennessee between 1964 and 1967. During that period, at the time of a child's adoption, both states pulled the original birth certificate, sealed it, and issued a new birth certificate with all the data the same, but substituting the adoptive parent(s)'s name and the adopted child's new name for the originals. All other birth records were also sealed. If Hawaii followed the same practice, this would have happened at the time of Obama's adoption by the Indonesian step-father. There literally would be no original birth certificate available without all parties' permission.

...I have long assumed that the available birth certificate for Obama is in his adoptive father's name, and since that didn't fit the narrative of his public persona, he wouldn't sign for its release and he produced that computer generated phony when things got too hot.

I've never been a Birther but I guess I am a sorta a birther in that I've always assumed that Obama was born in HI but there was something on his birth certificate that was embarrassing and/or didn't fit his narrative and that was why he acted so squirrely about it. The adoption theory actually would fit all the  known facts.

Your Phone is Not at Wayne Dobson's House

There's a bug in Sprint's Find My Phone system in North Las Vegas that always says your phone is at his house - it's not.

If a cellphone GPS system can't get a specific read on a device, the system will return a general location. For Sprint users in North Las Vegas, the general location returned is the home of Wayne Dobson, and over the last couple years, several people have knocked on his door looking for their phone with the Find My Phone feature. These situations are generally diffused when Dobson calls the police, and he's even invited people in to wait for the police to show up.

The Key to Fluency in a Language: Learning 10,000 Words

Well learning 10,000 words in a single year is probably too ambitious for most people but I do think there's something magical about mastering 6 to 10K words in a language.

It's enough to let you get the gist of most conversations and articles and begin adding new vocabulary from context. Plus it's usually sufficient to let you communicate whatever you need to even if it's in caveman-speak. Even knowing just the top 1000 most common words in language and a bit of pantomiming is often enough to get by even if no one speaks English.

Thinking as a Child

There's a lot of bits of childhood culture and entertainment that we forget about as we get older:

Lying in bed at night, waiting for sleep to overtake me, an entertaining feature was to press gently on my eyes with my fists and rub, causing the activation of phosphenes and a bit of a light show (the Greeks had described the phenomenon long before my time, but I was unaware of that and thought I'd invented the activity on my own).

Then there was the repetition of a familiar word until it became strange. This was accomplished by simply saying it aloud over and over to the point where it was leached of its original meaning and devolved to a mere sound. I recall this happening most effectively and dramatically with the word "pink," but others will do quite nicely.

One of my favorites was simply to spin around until I was so dizzy I couldn't even get up. Or clapping my hands together until they started getting numb and it felt like I was touching a force field.

Registration for Precious Metals?

Illinois wants gold control as well as gun control:

While passed in the Illinois Senate last year, and moth-balled in the House since, Rick notes that "the long and short of it is is they want an audit trail to any precious metals, whether you're talking coins or bullion." It does not seem too much of a stretch to this Chicagoan to the 1933 Executive Order #6102 that confiscated gold and cleared the way eventually for Nixon's 1971 disconnect of the dollar from gold. As Liberty Blitzkrieg's Mike Krieger notes: "So let me get this straight.  First they want gun registration and now precious metal registration?  I'm sure the government would only use such information in our best interests, because as we all know: Your Government Loves You.  Sounds reasonable, after all, only 'terrorists' buy guns and gold anyway."

I hate Illinois control Nazis.

The Slow Death of Texas German

I knew there were a lot of German immigrants to Texas but I didn't realize they had their own dialect known as Texas German:

As the obscure dialect of Texas German nears extinction, an entire culture and way of life that deeply shaped Texas is about to disappear.

A century ago, more than 100,000 people in a large swathe of south central Texas spoke the dialect. To the uninitiated, it sounds like a strange mishmash of English and German.

Today, perhaps 8,000 people can speak it, the youngest of whom are in their 60s, according to Hans Boas, a University of Texas at Austin professor who studies Texas German. Few have passed it on to their children and grandchildren, so the dialect is now impossible to save, Boas said.

There has been a fad among some well-off African Americans to have DNA testing done to try to localize where exactly in Africa their family line had originated.

I don't think you will ever see Obama do this. Because I suspect such a test would show he is not in fact of East African lineage. His actual bloodline is West African, and it comes through Frank Marshall Davis. Obama Sr. was merely a convenient beard to disguise the Davis connection.

That would explain, inter alia, why Obama treats his Kenyan kin with such distant contempt, refusing even to drop his impoverished half-brother a few bucks, and dropping his illegal-alien aunt and drunk-driving uncle into the US welfare system without giving them a dime. They really aren't his blood kin at all, and he has known it from a pretty early age.

Don't accept the premise that a certain amount of alcohol consumption equates to alcoholism.

If you can function at a high level with whatever level of consumption you enjoy, then you are not an alcoholic.

It is when you can no longer function because of alcohol consumption, regardless of amount, that you are an alcoholic.

101 Private Computer Safety (Rights) is the next thing on the Democratic Agenda(TM).

Eventually the government will get involved in private computer usage "for the children" or "for the <insert poor, little, helpless, people group name>" and will create compulsory computer registration, aka Public Computer Safety Laws. Remotely installable "Assault Software" will be banned and only applications approved by the local Housing Authority will be approved, unless you take a computer safety course with the appropriate insurance purchased, of course.

Houses with more than 5 computers will eventually be banned for residential areas and zoning restrictions, for energy conservation, of course, will be enforced with rigor.

Personal computer ownership will be replaced with corporate rental and leasing arrangements. After all, Private Computer Rights are not enumerated in the Bill of Rights, are they?

Ike was from Kansas, but he was indeed of German ancestry.

In Cincinnati at the turn of the 20th Century, there were so many Germans, that it was taught in public schools. That ended during WW1.
And the northern suburb of Canton, Ohio was called New Berlin, until WWI, when it then became "North Canton".

174 Can't stay long, but I have something to add about the birth certificate. I was born within a year after Obama (in TX), and I'm half adopted. When I was 3 my mother married my dad (person I call Dad, not bio-dad), and he adopted me. Like the article above said, I was issued a birth certificate with my "new" dad as the father. It was as if he was my father from the moment I was born.

But! This does not mean earlier birth certificates do not exist. They do. Years later after one of my parents died I found my original birth certificate, which had the name I was given at birth. Maybe the state only keeps one version, but the individuals will have both.

No his line ran from Germany to Switzerland and then decided it was not far enough away.

Thus they came here and settled in PA if memory serves.

Lines were a lot more fluid prior to WW1 and the mad rush for hard passports...

I wish I was an adult in the 1890s because of the fluidity.

Sven @ 108
Yes, I'm of German ancestry. The nick is not my real name.
My mother's grandparents were German farmers from up around Van Wert County and Lima. My father's grandparents were from Western Maryland (Frostburg) and crazy German tinkerers and merchants (very small time) from Dayton. My father's father and his brothers came to Dayton after WWI looking for factory jobs and leaving the farm in the hills of Western Maryland.
We stayed at a motel in Western Maryland (Cumberland)a couple of times on the way to the Outer Banks when my kids were small, and there were people workingthere with my last name. Distant cousins, no doubt, as the name is not terribly common, but it was there.

183 At the risk of being far too serious for the ONT....

When considering O's birth cert keep two things in mind:

Yes he is almost certainly hiding something. But the 2nd Birther was a HRC supporter and HRC never, ever used this weapon. The 1st Birther was of course Obama himself, who peddled the foreign born origin story to sell his book then buried it when he started growing ambitions beyond Senator.

It doesn't matter. They pushed the issue just to make it toxic to ask any question in that area. And the big one doesn't need any documents other than Obama's own danged book. He wasn't and isn't qualified to hold the office by his own preferred creation myth.

1. BHO Sr. was not a US Citizen and never even contemplated becoming one.

2. BHO Jr. was legally adopted by an Indonesian.

3. The Natural Born Citizen clause in the requirements for POTUS appears nowhere else in the document; Therefore it must mean something. If the term 'natural born' can encompass a guy with legal claim on British, Kenyan, Indonesian and American citizenship then it is a nullity.

The only way around point #1 is if Stanley Ann wasn't actually married, not sure but I think being a bastard would get around the father's lack of citizenship. Or if BHO Sr. ain't the babydaddy. But that still leaves the second problem.

Let us stick to that dead simple reasoning, not that it really matters anymore since he is safely reelected.

Posted by: sven10077 at February 13, 2013 10:45 PM (LRFds)

The point is moot now, but there was a time when some help might have yielded great benefits. If a single state had passed a law requiring real proof of US Citizenship birth, it might have derailed the entire Obama re-election.

Arizona did it, but their asshole governor vetoed it. Oklahoma (and other states) almost did it, but more or less killed it by committee.
This was one of those things that wouldn't have hurt us, and might actually have won the battle. (Against Obama's re-election.)

there do not seem to be...



So... no Birth Cert with the name he used, when he needed a Social
Security number.... so Grandma, who worked in a place where they saw
death records... found him one... which explains how he uses a Social
Sec number for a guy from another State, who died in Hawaii...



But hey.... its all just Birther nonsense... nothing to see here... move along....

Posted by: Romeo13 at February 13, 2013 10:45 PM (lZBBB)

Much speculation has surrounded the 1971 visit of Barack Obama sr to Hawaii. At the time he was not doing well, and really couldn't afford it financially. Speculation is that he was sent for by the Dunham family to undo the Indonesian adoption of little Barry. Stanley Ann Dunham just happened to be in Hawaii at exactly the same time. (from Indonesia)
What is often overlooked is the fact that the Dunhams HAD to have some sort of legal guardianship document, because they took care of little Barry (a minor) for the next 8 years or so.

But! This does not mean earlier birth

given at birth. Maybe the state only keeps one version, but the
individuals will have both.


Posted by: Mayday at February 13, 2013 10:50 PM (F3s39)

I too was adopted, and I have an original birth certificate with one name, and I have another "Official" birth certificate with my current name. For the last four years i've been trying to explain that lying on birth certificates is routine for all state governments. There are 75,000 false birth certificates issued every year. (75,000 adoptions.)

There is about seven pieces of evidence that Obama was adopted by Lolo Soetoro. Of COURSE there is something funky about his Hawaiian docs, the original is sealed by court order. ( Which is SOP for adoptions.)

It really doesn't matter any more but for one thing. To demonstrate to people that they need to quit being so quick to judge ideas which they don't like. Both the Democrats AND the Republicans would brook no discussion of this issue. They would scream at you if you even tried to discuss it, Facts be damned.

I see this issue going no where, but it's important to keep tabs on who was right, and who was wrong on this issue. By the way, I read that Orly's going to the Supreme court next week. I cringe at the thought.

I've noticed fantasy fiction, at least before the modern "you go girl" fiction, generally made the lead female an archer.

I'm guessing the notion of female swordsmen struck people in the past as ludicrous.

Though the load on bows historically required serious upper body strength too. A longbow was 100-200lbs. Imagine doing that 30 times quickly...

251 And to chime in with others, yes indeed there is all kinds of paperwork and proof needed to change a name. Just ask any woman who's been divorced and wanted to change her name back, which includes me. And think about this. When you change a name, it isn't just on your birth certificate. You have to get a social security card re-issued. Change your driver's license, credit cards, bills, loans, stock certificates, school records, transcripts, and more I'm probably forgetting. There is no way Barry changed his name without a paper trail. Inconceivable.

I've had a lot of last names in my life. When I found my original birth certificate (in my 30's), it did not have the last name on it I always thought I was born with. Not even the 2nd name I would have thought. I have quite a convoluted family tree.

263 In Hollywood today,the girl posing in the bikini would be called an overweight heifer.

Bent-over-a-car girls often still look like that, because those girls are there for men to look at. It's only models for women's stuff who have to be skinny.

Companies who try selling to women using the "real women" that women say they want to see in their ads see their sales instantly go to shit. Even putting Katy Perry in your ads--and she's right at the center of the What Shape All Dudes Like bell curve--is pushing it. That's why they hide/shrink her breasts and hips in all the print ads she's in. ...I'm serious. Do the "Katy Perry advertisement" image search, and you have to practically where's-Waldo for her girl-lookin' parts. Hire Katy "Boobs" Perry...and hide her boobs. OR ELSE.

Meanwhile magazines for guys are full of squishy women (except for the ones that are full of Japanese girls) and they always will be (except in Japan).

My mother's ancestors walked to Van Wert county 200 years ago. It was rumored their father was a German mercenary for the British during the Revolutionary War, and stayed behind (in the United States)because he had nothing to go back to in what were the oldduchies and principalities before Germany was united by von Bismarck
Two different great great Grandfathers fought in the Civil War, marching south with Don Carlos Buell.

My mother's father was a WWI combat veteran, enlisted in the Army in 1915 when he was 18 years old. Served at the border during the Mexican crisis under Major Patton. His son, (my uncle) got to tour Europe with the 3rd Army in 1944-45, and by then Patton had gotten a promotion.

Adoption paper trails are sealed by court order. They can't always get everything. Much speculation has been made regarding Obama's Connecticut issued Social Security number. One commenter has speculated that the agency which dealt with repatriating Minor Americans was headquartered in Connecticut. He thinks this agency got the Social Security card on Little Barry Soetoro's behalf.

It's enough to let you get the gist of most conversations and articles and begin adding new vocabulary from context. Plus it's usually sufficient to let you communicate whatever you need to even if it's in caveman-speak. Even knowing just the top 1000 most common words in language and a bit of pantomiming is often enough to get by even if no one speaks English.








Unless you're an American leftist talking to your gardener. IN THAT CASE YOU JUST TALK IN ENGLISH, BUT LOUDER.

As for myself, I figure that if it's important enough to speak to another person at all, the rest of the fucking world can get their shit together and learn to speak English.

DiogenesLamp, nice to know there's another double birth certificate person here.

My personal theory on most things regarding our gov't is that they all have dirt on each other, and thus the discussions that should happen don't because they blackmail each other. The fact that all the GOP, the SCOTUS and all of Congress avoided the birth certificate/natural citizen subject makes me think they're all complicit. What motive did they ALL have to suppress the truth? I don't know.

I'm truly shocked that by now somebody, somewhere hasn't leaked. As I mentioned above, there is a shit-ton of documents that have your name on it. And literally thousands of people at many different companies and agencies, from IT people to clerks to CEOs would have had access to computer systems with info on O. Somebody wiped his history clean and has managed to keep a lid on the truth. This means the alpha agencies all know the truth to and are part of the conspiracy.

I have always been open minded on the issue. I've pondered about three or four theories at the same time, never ruling any out until evidence came forth which made them impossible or implausible.

At this point, I think Obama could very well have been born in Hawaii in exactly the manner his book says, or he could have been born in Washington State (Hawaii will issue a birth certificate to the child of any resident, regardless of where born.) or Obama could have been born in Canada.

For whatever reason, he has not been forthcoming with his birth documents.

There are seven pieces of evidence that he was adopted by Lolo Soetoro in 1965, among them an admission by his sister Maya, that he was adopted.
The embarrassing thing on his birth certificate is that it is sealed by court order and is therefore unobtainable. (Without another court order.)

334 If the official narrative of Obama is correct, that his natural father was Barrack Sr and his mother Stanley, the only reason that he is a US citizen is due to the 19th amendment (before then dependents derived their citizenship from the husband and father, even otherwise natural born us citizen women lost their citizenship when marrying a foreign national, even a LPR), 14th notwithstanding, and I do not recall either the 19th or 14th revising the phrase natural born citizen.

If the official narrative of Obama is correct, that his natural father was Barrack Sr, he was born a Brit and the Founders wrote a clear requirement for one born a Brit to be the president.

340 You're so close to the birth certificate secret. So close. Here's a hint. Google "Barack Obama adopted by Indians". He wasn't adopted by his indonesian stepfather. He was adopted by two native americans right in the middle of the 2008 campaign. Yes, it was a legal adoption, and yes, it resulted in his birth certificate being sealed and an new one being issued -- listing two American citizens as his parents. Born in Hawaii, two citizen parents ... what eligability problem?

I've been researching this for quite awhile, and you are essentially correct. The Naturalization of any woman who marries an American citizen was codified into law in 1845.( if I remember correctly.) Regarding American women who married foreign citizens, they were considered foreign citizens until the Cable act of 1924, and their claim on citizenship was further strengthened by the Women's citizenship act of 1934.

For some reason this dialog made me think of this funny aside: There's a shopping center about a mile away from me that has on the corner a nifty landscaped whatchamacallit with the shopping plaza's name. On the three small decorative concrete walls, there is purposely embedded in Roman font the phrase: (first wall) Call any vegetable (second wall) and the chances are good (third wall) that the vegetable will respond. That's pretty cool or fucked up, depending on your point of view, and whether or not you get the reference.

Dogs are not supposed to look like ducks, though neither are starlets. I'd guess the hunters will be more protective of their dogs than Hollywood women will be of themselves. Duckface, trout pout, call it what you want, but it's awful and I wish women would stop doing that to themselves.

Its possibly a problem with the connections for the lights then. I had a problem with the turn signal light on my car always going out. Eventually replaced the socket for the bulbs and it stopped destroying them. So perhaps you should look into finding a replacement part for as far back as possible and see if that fixes it.

588 GGE, have the Carrol Shelby autograph plaque installed on mine and the special sill plates. Still got the original window sticker. Just want to pad out the documentation list since mine is on the registry also.

Well not had a chance to really look to see if its different. But IIRC that part of my GT500 is the same as what was on my 07 GT/CS. Since I noticed it it has been raining turning my front yard into a polder. Hope to get to it Thursday.

592 cthulhu, I had a time of light changing with the Subaru, seemed like I was changing a bulb every week. One memorable night I pulled into the wally-world to get a low beam bulb, changed it out and then saw I had lost a fog lamp bulb sometime between pulling into the parking lot and replacing the low beam. I went back in and bought two of each bulb (high beam, low beam and fogs) and I haven't had to replace one since.

Yeah, that's what I'm sensing coming on....maybe a 2-year bad batch of replacements at Pep Boys. It just started happening, then it seems like it's all the time, and it wouldn't shock me if it stopped.

After successfully arguing Brown v. Board of Education before the Warren Court in 1954, Thurgood Marshall was appointed to the SCOTUS in 1967. Supposedly, he encountered Earl Warren some time after his confirmation and asked, "how's it hangin', chief?" -- the joke being that he was fully capable of effectively arguing a groundbreaking case in most deferential and constrained terms, but now was merely a coworker.

Romex is solid wire, not stranded. It'll fatigue and break with the vibration. I'd go with EMT and stranded. For the least amount of headache, sell the car.

I cited Romex for effect. The point being, any idiot can build a wire-harness.....in fact, they're usually subcontracted to the cheapest idiot available. Why not just build your own with quality materials? You're going to spend first-world analytical skills troubleshooting stuff put together in 3rd world countries?

610 Romex: you have to use the 10-gauge, dummy.
I had a buddy who could get a BSA running, with a headlight, with a pre-measured three feet of wire. Most people can't even claim the main clause, there.

The most mystical British motorcycle part was the Zener diode, doing the job of a voltage regulator on a good day, and that of a fusible link and corn-popper element on a bad one. They worked perfectly (like so many things) only in total isolation. We always presumed it was arrived at in a high stone tower somewhere with lightning striking, and Barnes Wallis looking on. I finally looked 'er up. Clarence Zener was from Indianapolis.

611 The '63 was 4.4' high. So, I'm guessing she was a 5 footer, weighing in at maybe 95 lbs. Tidy, very tidy. Easy to handle. Also, what a bunch of names that makes me want to find a sidewalk to spit upon. Wondered what the most popoular Chinese girls name might be, so I checked. Way better. Let's just go ahead and become Chinese ... we can certainly learn 10k words, right? No problem-o, wang chung!

617 I've never heard Texas German but when I lived in Texas I had a boss who spoke Tex-Cajun.

Took me months to be able to partially understand him. One day I asked him what a ratch ear was. I thought it was a part in the machine shop.

He looked at me with a smile and said "Yankee boy, when I tell you to put something ratch ear, I expect y'all to put it ratch ear!"

619 I like the birth certificate theory. I, too, assumed he was born in Hawaii, but was hiding something else he thought wasembarrassing (with a small chance that he liked the controversy because he could paint all of his opponents as "birther" nuts, or, that he didn't want to set a precedent for disclosing other potentially bad stuff, like his bar application or college records). My guess was that his race was listed as white, or his first name on the certificate was Barry, but those obviously didn't pan out.

Guten tag, y'all! For the edification of all the 'rons and 'ronettes who have hung on this thread, I will supply a brief dissertation about the Hill Country/Texas German settlers, and the short life of the Mainzer Adelsverein - or the Society of Noblemen of Mainz. In the early 1840s a consortium of philanthropic German noblemen wanted to do good and possibly make a little profit by taking up an entrepeneur grant in then-independent Texas and transporting a large number of farmers and craftsmen to it. (Industrialization was biting those craftsmen hard, and the lack of land was also biting small farmers.) They contributed funds, advertized widely across Germany, made all kinds of promises to give each settleror family a quantity of land, a house, supplies and support for a year until they could bring in a crop, chartered ships, and brought over 7,000 new settlers to Texas over the course of two years. The Adelsverein established several towns - New Braunfels and Fredericksburg in the Hill Country, and Indianola on the Gulf coast, with an eye towards feeding their settlers into their grant ... which, oops! Turned out to bebetween the San Saba and Llano rivers, two hundred miles beyond the frontier,AND in Comanche huntinggrounds. (Other towns like Comfort, Sisterdale, Bettina and Boerne were settled later by the Germans).
However, the Adelsverein way underestimated the costs of supplying all the things they had promised, and went broke ... essentially leaving all the settlers they had brought over to look for themselves. Fortunately, the second Adelsverein commissioner in Texas, one Baron von Meusebach, was a sensible and able man, who mitigated some (but not all) of the disaster and mismanagement. He negotiated a peace treaty with the Southern Comanche, which gave the Adelsverein a breathing space of about fifteen years - otherwise, they very likely would have been wiped out. As it was, a substantial number of them died in epidemics of disease, in transit. The trail between the coast and New Braunfels was pretty much a death march.Those settlers who came under Adelsverein auspices, and a number of intellectuals sympathetic to them provided a great deal of human talent toa frontier pretty well lacking it; doctors, scientists, mercantilists, teachers, techniciansand engineers. A lot of businesses in San Antonio were established by those settlers, including the local newspaper, the Pioneer flour mills - and the Menger Hotel. They also were largely Unionists and abolitionists during the Civil War, which added a whole new dimension to the Texas home front. (look up the Nueces Fight and the Comfort True To The Union Monument.)
They've remained pretty cohesive over the years, even now. I've talked to many descendents of Adelsverein settlers in the course of doing book and history talks. It's a fantastic story, all in all. According to some of the older people I've met, their families made a decision round about 1920 to start speaking English in the home, not German - residual bad feeling after WWI. By that time, of course, they had been settled in Texas for at least seventy years.I've been told thatit was illegal to speak German in public during WWII.
And yes, conjunto music was thefusion resulting fromCzech and German polka and folk music meeting upwith local Mexican musicians.
