Overnight Open Thread for Thursday, 2-21-2013

Last night's ONT found me extolling the virtues of the internet as a tool for creative-types and lamenting the seemingly inverse relationship between the availability of rich, high quality content on the web and the average person's capacity to fully absorb it. Upon reflection, it occurs to me that I was essentially making a point, however scattered, about the double-edged-sword nature of the explosion in the availability of rich, high-quality content. Consuming media on the internet these days is a wharrgarblian task.

There's another aspect of the internet that carries a similar trade-off as it relates to person-to-person interaction. (I realize this is at least the fifth post ever written on the internet about its dehumanizing effects, but bear with me here.) It seems that for a lot of people, along with the ability to instantly communicate with people comes the irresistible compulsion to do it shabbily. Well, I'm here to help.

Call me a babe in the woods, but I happen to think there's still something to be said for basic common courtesy in person-to-person correspondence, no matter how informal. I've always found that in communicating with someone, whether through email or a blog comment, it's best to start off on a reasonably polite note. Greetings and salutations might be a bit much, but alternatively, if you jump right in with a simpering philippic most normal people will give it a cursory scan and conjure the mental image below:


Ironically enough, I think the tendency to behave that way on the internet has a great deal to do with the image a person is trying to put forth; they honestly believe they look better by coming off as an insufferable prig than they would if they were more mannerly and civil. They just don't understand how they really look to everyone else around them. I've been trying to come up with a good analogy to describe it, and I think it is pretty well summed up in this story.

"The water did have a funny taste," Sabrina Baugh told CNN on Wednesday. She and her husband used the water for eight days.

"We never thought anything of it," the British woman said. "We thought it was just the way it was here."

What she described was not normal.


If you imagine everyone else around you as the guests in that hotel, and you and your comment as the source of that funny-tasting water, you have a pretty good idea of just what kind of impression you're making on others.

Now, I'll admit to less than pristine hands on the matter. I've composed my share of dyspeptic screeds over the years. But, that's generally a consequence of having major disagreements on matters I feel passionately about -- particularly as it relates to politics. But, I'm talking about something else, here. What I'm talking about is the immediate and uncontrollable urge among some people to fling poo over the most minor point of contention. (Click image to view in full.)


The surprising thing about this phenomenon is how long people will persist in such behavior before it dawns on them that they're not really coming off as the too-hip-for-the-room, irreverent anti-hero they imagine themselves to be. Almost invariably, the person who delights in always being the loudest, most caustic voice in the room will end up in a flame war, suddenly look around at everyone else, note all the furrowed brows, and wonder why no one's there to back them up.



All of this would be fine if the consequences of that kind of behavior stopped with the person who engaged in it. Unfortunately, it doesn't. In fact, like the body in the water tank in the story linked above, that kind of attitude taints everything around it. And the ultimate result is that people of generally good will have less reason to assume that the other people they're dealing with share that good will, which in turn leads to communication breakdown. Suddenly, the idea of creating a new class of punctuation for the sake of clarity seems reasonable. (Click image to view in full.)



Thankfully, though, there are still people in the world who appreciate the importance of communicating with others in a forthright and reasonably humble manner. We all forget it sometimes, but on those occasions when we do, taking the time to rectify the situation in such a way is often all that's needed. I can't begin to count the number of times I've felt pangs of regret for something I've said or done and remedied the entire matter by simply acknowledging my culpability and doing my best to set things right.



Now, maybe you're one of those people, and maybe you're not. Deep-down, though, you know whether or not you are. And maybe you're just the kind of sociopath who actually enjoys being that way -- in which case, I pity you. You'll eventually get your comeuppance.



But, if you do a little self-reflection and determine that you don't really want people to have that kind of an impression of you, then you're well on your way to becoming a normal, functioning adult. The first, most important step in becoming a better person is admitting you have a problem.



Tonight's ONT is brought to you by bards.

1 Nevada Legislator Channels Bertold Brecht

Nevada state Senator Tick Segerblom cheered the news that Hispanics will soon outnumber whites in California, and shouts “woohoo” to Nevada becoming the same. Just why would such a demographic change warm the cockles of his heart so? Sen. Segerblom’s sad enthusiasm for emulating that Fool’s Golden State of California is sadly mistaken, and it is certainly be hoped that any Nevada legislator would not, and it is likely that Segerblom is not, simply channeling the former California state Senator, “Commie Tommy” Hayden who espoused a support for a kindler, gentler genocide aimed at decreasing the number of white people when he voiced support for “another step in a long-term goal…: the peaceful, nonviolent disappearance of the white race.” [emphasis mine].

14 From Technical Ecstasy to “I Can Haz Socializm”: A Stand Alone Complex

Less than 20 years ago, the “internet” played practically no role in election campaign, or even in the wider areas of the culture, such in entertainment, news, and, to a large degree, education. While the way that the Progressive bastions of entertainment industries, mainstream news, and public education mutually reinforce each other and their common goal has been gaining more attention, the same is less true to how the internet and other communications technologies and tools. The broader and easier the ability to readily communicate, can allow different aspects of electoral campaigning, from the analysis of data to the appeal to low information voters, to be unified into a powerful tool. The Obama campaign’s success with “Narwhal” (and Romney’s failure with “OCRA”) is well known by now. While Narwhal allowed the Obama campaign to compile and utilize information in its appeal to voters, it was not the be-all end-all of Obama’s tech-savvy campaign, but a skeleton the underlied a much larger, and successful, assault on America.

If Florida's Gov. Scott does lose reelection next year he can always go back to hollywood and revive his acting career. Using the name Michael Berryman, he starred in quite a few films including, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and The Hills Have Eyes.

88 Polite discourse in public would be nice but people have become coarse, rude and nasty.

Today I was driving back to work from the dentist and stopped at a light when this man starting screaming about Jews. I had my window open he pointed at me and began a vile tirade about female Jews in particular.

I wanted to get out of my car and punch him in the face. Vile, revolting piece of shit.

And dickhead across the street is seeing all this. Pissed me off just a bit. And the poor thing has cramps and feels like shit anyway.

104 The world has been like the internet, in terms of unmanageable information, at least since the time of novelist Thomas Wolfe (1900-193 and poet Delmore Schwartz (1913-1966). Wolfe wrote of "the welter of events" in way that suggested not merely events of the sort and scale of those in a novel, but any events designated as such by a subject. Schwartz's poem "Calmly We Walk through This April’s Day", especially the last stanza, which begins "Each minute bursts in the burning room," suggests the pace at which events in ones life occur, as if in a conflagration. The internet is a mere gloss.

I heard a car sounding like a car sounds when it's high-centered and not making any headway earlier this evening.

I look outside, and it's the twenty-something son of the neighbor across the cul-de-sac, trying to get his car up the very, very slight slope of the (snow-cleared) driveway to park in the garage.

He was spinning his tires. A lot. He finally made it, but I was about to put on the boots and the coat and head over there to help him out---because I had visions of him hitting a stray patch of good traction and sending his car flying through the far wall of the garage.

Usage note for winter-driver-neophytes: if you're spinning your tires, YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG.

Yup, high-centered. Get out the shovels, and find something you can put in front of the drive tires to get some traction. Oddly enough, a shovel place in front of one of the drive wheels sometimes is enough.

Another winter-driving-usage-note for neophytes: Never, EVER come to a complete stop, if you can help it. ALSO, and this IS IMPORTANT, never go fast enough that you will, if you hit something, do more than bend a bit of metal. You can replace metal.

"Lord Jesus Christ, by Thy most holy agony, and prayer, which Thou prayed for us on the Mount of Olives, when Thy sweat was like drops of blood running down on the earth: I beseech Thee, that Thou would deign to offer and show to God the Father Almighty Thy great bloody sweat that for fear of anguish Thou copiously shed for us, against all the many sins of this Thy servant, and free him in this hour of his death from all punishment and agony, which for his sins he fears he has merited for himself. Thou Who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, for ever and ever. Amen."

170 I bought a macbook for a great price on Thanksgiving weekend of 2011. Used it for 3 days, hated it, returned it to those fools at Best Buy for a full refund. I will keep the iMac, even though I would really prefer something smaller. Plus the keyboard is crap, but I can use my cool one I have on my little obsolete G5. Ditto for the mouse.

Yup, high-centered. Get out the shovels, and find something you can put in front of the drive tires to get some traction.

Always keep a few pieces of corrugated cardboard in the trunk. When the car is stuck like that, shove a nice-sized piece under the tire.

A neighbor once helped me that way.

Posted by: Jones in CO at February 21, 2013 10:58 PM (8sCoq)

Because the drive wheels are always pulling, and if you are trying to stop you will have to stand on the brakes harder to overcome that, which could cause the brakes to lock.
Of course in this new-fangled world with antilock brakes and the like, this is mostly bullshit now. However, when one is driving a 1962 Chevrolet pickup with drum brakes, a 300HP 350 CID engine and a TH350 trans, one learns very quickly to shift into neutral to stop.

Of course, one also learns very quickly not to drive that no-traction getting sonofabitch in the snow if one can help it...

Posted by: Peaches at February 21, 2013 11:10 PM (kpCLl)

237 The theory behind using neutral to approach a stop is that the degree of brake to stop the wheels moving at idle in an automatic is enough to lock them up.

Imo; with abs this is not a problem and with regular brakes pumping will also help. Neutral leaves you with one more thing to think about when you're already overloaded and (if you know how to drive on slippery surfaces) being in gear can actually assist in avoiding getting stuck or losing control.

I go with leaving the tranny to worrying about itself and at most putting into Low.

the most important thing you can do in a storm (other than not driving) is to DRIVE SLOW. Even if the road is plowed, your adhesion to the surface is drastically reduced and usually is the worst right where you need it the most.

247 Goin' NC skiin' on the past President's Day Holiday weekend was "challenging". Black ice on the roads, and 2-1/2 hours is 5-1/2, slip and slide. Puked snow quick for the SE.

$135 for snow chains that were basically aircraft cable with washers. Actually pretty ingenious. I think I could "knock 'em off" in the shop over a weekend. If I had the time and where-with-all.

Crowds and cold. 12 deg. overnight. In NC! Finally 11:30 on the slopes. Shitty conditions. Chair lift stalls. New skiers and boarders. Whoo-f'ing-hoo! Jager and Makers.

252 My cousin and i were leaving college. Packed up in a '78 CJ5. Hit a piece of ice on a back-country road only doing about 10mph in a curve and rolled it over like a friggin' turtle! Up-side-down but on the hillside. Wheels still spinning. Turned off the iginition, went outside, flipped it back over, checked the oil and drove off. We broke one large picture frame!

254 The problem with PU's isn't the power, it's the lack of weight in the rear.

I used to buy bags of salt and put them in the back.

You get the extra weight for traction and you can always use the salt at home or on the road if you get stuck. it's better than sand or gravel. (but not if it starts to melt the ice cover)

Heh. True story- When I lived in San Antonio BITD, one winter we actually had an incoming snow storm. The city shut down the interstate interchanges before the storm even hit. The local TV newsies did "man-in-the-street" interviews asking people what they would do if they hit a patch of ice or snow on the road. One interviewee literally said, " I think I would curl up in the seat of my car and cry for my mother."



Okay, I may have made up that last part.

I said uh mom, it don't work that way. Poor women actually thought if you threw 35 pounds of air in a tire that's how much it weighed. I said yeah mom, like my 10 speed bike really weighs 150 pounds.

Back when I was 16 and studying for a real estate license, I actually studied all those old measurements. Turns out, the California land grant system was so screwed up that you might need to know the difference in your land measured in California vara (33 inches) or the Spanish vara (32.91 inches) based on the identity of the grantor (if you got a Royal grant from the King of Spain, it would be in Spanish varas....if you got it from the Governor of California, it could go either way.....if you got it from your neighbor, it'd be in California varas).

buildings was a big ol' bird of prey of some sort (hawk or condor or
buzzardor nightingale or some such). Just sitting there as cool as the
other side of the pillow. A crow was dive bombing him, but he just kept
on a sittin' there. I hope his presence wasn't an omen or sign
indicating the quality of work we were doing today. Had kind of a
hopeful look in his eye.

The BH and I went to a dive resort in Honduras where our quarters overlooked the dock -- which, as is usual, floated between piers that were like short telephone poles so that it would move with the tides. One morning, we got up and looked out the window before going to breakfast, and each of the eight piers had a vulture perched on top.

We almost didn't go diving that day.

What venue did this happen-

“Sometimes it can be difficult finding your G spot by yourself, because it involves inserting a finger or fingers inside the vagina into the front wall of the body, and that kind of results in an awkward, kind of clawlike hand position,” Weinberg said, demonstrating with a pawing motion as the audience giggled. “Obviously, there are better ways you can position your body. Or if you’ve got a partner, you can get your partner to insert their finger or fingers inside your vagina in the front wall of your body in a sort of a J curve"

On a PC, I have to figure out if they have XP, Vista, Win 7 and now Win8. All with things in various places with different names. You'll be fine with the new Mac. And, I use a G5 to remote into my work computer, running XP.

If anyone ever wants to make an effective piece of spam, send out an email supposedly from their internet provider, saying that they owe $382.58 which will be taken out of their account by midnight AND you're turning them over to collections.

358 Actually Beano probably would work (partially) for dogs. I know that it's a "secret ingredient" in homebrewing beer in case your fermentation "sticks", because it's an enzyme that cleaves complex carbohydrates into the simple sugars that your yeastie-beasties can turn to alcohol. Unfortunately, some of those carbs are part of the malty flavor of the beer and overdosing the Beano will turn your tasty ale into tasteless rocket fuel.

It's supposed to start 15 days after the pope croaks -- but, in this case, Benedict gave notice that he's out 2/28. So it'll start 3/15 or earlier. All the Cardinals are supposed to be in town for some wild party on 2/27, anyway, so there shouldn't be much need for travel time.

The drop spacer slopes it down so I can get a good cheek weld and still look down the barrel, should improve my aim some (I hope).

Other interesting observations lately. I was waiting for a train to passand about 50 feet away a guy was getting a BJ at 4 in the afternoon in the front seat of his car in a parking lot. I thought about honking and giving him a thumbs up but it would have broken his concentration.
Today I went to buy some gas. The station signed advertised regular for $3.79 a gallon but the pumps were selling it for $2.79 a gallon. All three grades were under $3. I do believe corporate sends out the rates directly to the pumps so it is possible BP was selling gas a dollar off today at muliple stations accidentally.

437 I'm sorry for bringing a potentially divisive issue to the ONT, but I've been thinking recently about gay marriage, and it occurs to me that there's a serious flaw in the concept.

See, we have laws pertaining to marriage that ultimately can't be applied to a gay couple. For example... presumptive paternity.

Presumptive paternity cannot be an issue when the couple in question is two men. After all, no matter how much a man cheats, or with whom, he can't get pregnant from it. When it's two women, well, it's possible, but no divorce court judge would ever enforce presumptive paternity, because, quite frankly, it's ludicrous to declare a woman to be the father of a child conceived by her wife cheating on her.

So, that right there means that a gay couple cannot legally be treated the same as a straight couple. And if they can't legally be treated the same, then their unions can't have the same legal definition.

"Pope" is, technically, a nickname. All bishops at one point were "πάππας", but as the church grew its head became the one most "popish". As history makes abundantly clear from the myriad schisms, councils, and heresies, the Pope is is the head of the Roman Catholic Church because the Roman Catholic Church is the organization headed by the Pope. Protestant poking at the source of this fails to recognize the inherent strength of such circularity -- you might as well ask "where is the Arian tradition in Catholicism?" The answer is "out, banned, and excommunicated. Twice" (in 325 AD and again in 381 AD).

I've been talking about gay marriage for years, and my opinion hasn't changed a wink in that time. I know gay couples, they're good people, wish 'em all the best, but there is some serious loose shit in the legalisms of marriage and we'd all be better served if it were cleaned up before we expanded the pilot project to new users. And I say this as someone working on my third unwedded decade with my BH. Why is there so much misery in family court? Why are there so many prenups? Why do so many forego marriage entirely?

Why not fix something that might only be working at 55% before dumping another 20% of people into it that work against its limited successes? Your example is a good one -- presumptive paternity in an age of promiscuity is only working at 55%, max, judging from all those child support cases out there.....so why dump in another bunch of people for whom the 55% is a physical impossibility?

464 That's the major bone of contention. Protestants tend to believe that "On this rock I will build my church" was meant to be about Peter's claim that Jesus was the Messiah, the chosen one of God not about the "person" of Peter and Catholics believe it was about Peter as the first Pope. If we ALL lifted up the person of Jesus and let other disagreements go by the wayside we would function much better as the Body of Christ, and we would more likely be one flock, one shepherd, that shepherd being Jesus Christ

This is not about equality, this is not about being able to live happily forever.

a) getting health benefits for your fellow fister (even though we all know that homosexuality isn't full of risky sexual practices and it's victims)
b) sticking it to the Catholic church

My
problem is the Govt should not hand out anything with the word
"Marriage" on it. Union or something similar is what you should get from
the govt for legal reasons (money access probate etc). And Marriages
should be solely the business of the church.

I suspect that "there shall be no benefit under law based on 'marriage' (or other religious observation) that cannot be gained through simple contract" might be a really good start.

And some sort of inventory to figure out what the hell "marriage" means to those duplicitous language-fucking idiots in the bureaucracy right now.

487 Given the sexual habits of most gay men (who might be in supposedly "committed" relationships but still fool around) I don't think it's about marriage. I think it's about the things mentioned above and feeling that if you're "married "people will accept the lifestyle as normal. The one exception to that is men I know who are Christians who actually ARE in committed relationships. are married according to the laws of the states which they live in and have been through some sort of marriage service . Lesbians, who tend to be much more monogamous as a group really DO want to be married.

505 The most pro-gay civilization in history was Sparta. They raised all men to be gay.

And even they didn't have gay marriage. When it was time for a man to marry, he still married a woman. She shaved her head and dressed like a man for the wedding, so as not to spook her groom, who wasn't used to the idea of vagina, but marriage was still a man and woman thing.

509 Oh, I should say: if you argue that being gay as a genetic factor is not a strict a = b but that it causes a predisposition to that activity, then I might agree.

Trouble is so does environment.

The gay gene theory was developed because Gay's want gayness to be the equivalent of being black or being female/male. So they can't ride that affirmative action rocket to the top of the protected group list.

they particularly want to be on the "cannot speak badly about" Hate crime list.

511 Personally, being gay (for men) derives from inability to deal with women. For Women it's the inability to deal with men.

It's easier to understand your own sex. (in certain areas)

thus it's rejection of heterosexuality. Plus it's exciting because it's outside the norm and verboten.

What you point out is actually an argument against it being genetic.

A gene wouldn't normally affect so many different behaviors.

An environmental cause would. (by environmental, I also mean the stereotypes and other behaviors associated with females (for males) and males (for females) as being common.

The lisping flamer. the burly, flannel shirt wearing dyke.

Those are stereotypes that actually aren't as typical as you make them out to be. That may be what you've seen but there are far more undetectable gay people.

It looks like the "gay marriage / cause of gayness" thing is on again.

There is some evidence that genetics plays a role in causing homosexuality. Something about certain gene combinations, or gene markers on or off, maybe insufficient exposure to testosterone during a phase in gestation .... and an area, maybe a few, in the male child develop as they do in females. The problem is that the sample size used (autopsied) is small; maybe 15 individuals. But it does point a certain way. Could a CAT scan or MRI show the same information? IDK.

There's also evidence that stress, like from abuse, can cause the brain to "wire" itself the wrong way.

As far as gay marriage is concerned ... I think they are making a big mistake by buying into settled law. I think more than a few of them will eventually realize that "civil unions", essentially just a business contract, but with very different (from marriage) settled law, is, or would have been, very much preferable.

And I still think that all of this is a bit of a mask for the real goal: societal behavior control; the ability for an elite to decide what is and what is not socially-acceptable behavior ... and to do it on a whim, like clothing fashions, to suit their needs.

The attacks on Christianity, the nuclear family, what kids are taught in school, the way the Left protests, the assumed right of "Freedom of Expression" (I can't find the word "expression in the Constitution or Bill of Rights ... where is the piece of legislation creating this "right"?) all point to this.

that homosexuality isn't full of risky sexual practices and it's
victims)

Posted by: Bitter Clinger (aka Ol' 3 tooth) at February 22, 2013 01:12 AM (qyv02)


Let's get specific -- Gabriel Malor's here most every day, I've met him, he's a good guy.....actually a really standup guy. Gabe's gay, and is a proponent of gay marriage. When I talked to him, I did my best to explain my position and he heard me out respectfully.....but I didn't get his heart to be unconvinced -- which I regret, because I'm really trying for what's best for everyone.

But I also get that his heart yearns. I know that he loves desperately and passionately, as do we all who share this sadly mortal sphere, and that he wants to build a life with his partner. And I completely support him in that and sincerely wish him all the best.

But there is so much antiquated and counterfactual crap built into the State's view of marriage that I cannot wish him to be part of it unless and until it is reformed. I don't begrudge him anything -- not the presumption of inheritance, hospital visitation, better combined tax rates (if applicable)....I just don't want him inside a teetering, unsafe structure propped up by mad bureaucrats when the thing's on the verge of collapse.

Take, for instance, the joy of employment law. If you are a male and have a female employee who regularly exhibits subpar performance of an antagonistic, overaggressive nature for three days beginning every 28th day from the last episode, it is prima facie "sexual harassment" if you suggest she is mighty unpleasant when she's "on the rag" and should see a doctor before she gets herself fired -- even if you're gay, this is basic detective work, and it should be ultimately helpful for the employee to take your advice. If you are married, your spouse's assets can be attached in the resulting lawsuit -- so your gay spouse may be financially harmed by your non-sexual commonsense recommendation within the scope of your employment. It's nonsense on stilts -- and, frankly, there's much more of this sort of thing than the public knows about, because it's hushed up behind closed doors and ridiculous idiots tossing M-and-Ms at nipples get more press.

The same can be true of women, contrariwise -- commonsense behavior is shoved into gender stereotypes by officious bureaucrats, and the resulting mess is blamed on the supervisor. You could have the most extreme bull-dyke manager on the planet telling the swishy-est male phone support person to tone it down, and end up with a lawsuit that said "she gave me a bad review based on 'yelling at customers' because she was hostile to my masculinity" -- and the supervisor's partner could lose their life's savings.


It is ironic that "due process" is currently thought to be the key for gays to enter into State-defined matrimony, when the worst excesses of State-defined matrimony are uttermost failures of due process. You don't have to be straight or gay to know things are messed-up. You don't have to go into explicit discussions of anything to know there isn't a fair shake. You don't have to resort to name-calling to say you disagree. And you don't have to be anti-love to oppose gay marriage.

cthulhu: Severely O/T, but you might find this useful, for later reference



eBay Item 380440515759. The pictures and features are educational;
the sort of stuff worth remembering "for later". 4 axes will do a lot of
things, and the price looks ok ... figuring that needed software and a
lot of electronics are not included.



But they have a showroom in Pomona, so if you're ever down there ...

There's something odd going on, some sort of weird pricing anomaly....which means there may be money to be made. I'm seeing some parts of CNC just plummeting -- stuff that should cost $10 going for $1.....while I'm seeing other things that are going for more than I'd expect -- like, frankly, this guy.

Remember that I'm fundamentally an accountant. I've worked with machining; I've worked with robotics -- but, y'know, CPA. So let's talk three datapoints -- envelope, precision, dollars. This thing says "X: 11"; Y: 6-5/16"; Z: 10-5/8"", "0.00059"", and $7500. Let's just pop in LMS' CNC...."X: 10.2; Y: 4.3; Z: 7.1"; "0.0004"; and we'll just say $4800 delivered, from a storefront. That's 0.8 on the X (have you seen the "extended X by taking off the endcaps" vid?); 2 on the Y, and 3.5 on the Z. If that's a ballscrew issue only (and why wouldn't it be?) CNC Fusion has the difference between kit #112 and the kit #5 (LMC) for Sieg X2 CNC conversions as $46 -- which, according to http://www.littlemachineshop.com/Info/minimill_compare.php , gets you X: 1.8; Y: 1.1; Z: 0.8.

Extending the leadscrews gets you less precision, but why should extending the leadscrews by less than two inches while accepting a precision change from 0.0004 to 0.00059 (almost 50% increase!) (LMS -> Bolton) cost $2700 when extending leadscrews by almost 5" costs only $46? (Harbor -> LMS). Sure, it's going to be slower with the slower spindle. Yeah, it'll be less stable 'cause it weighs 1/5 as much....but $2700 v. $50?!??!? Oh, yeah....you get another axis......

I'm sensing a disconnect somewhere.

Posted by: Anna Puma (+SmuD) at February 22, 2013 05:18 AM (7hK27)


Something I found particularly amusing is that the artist continually takes liberties with the model's frame. For example, the painted image is considerably thinner in the first two paintings -- bedsheets and pelican; about the same in the next three -- fireplace, cowgirl, and sofa; more developed in the next four -- valentine, doghouse, swing, and slide; then less developed in "stump". It's almost like the artist likes women in all their varied forms and not just boys with tits, as you might find in today's art.


I'm well aware that personality can vary physical perception -- a girl with a smile is two points ahead of one without, no matter a man's preference for body parts or coloration. But having "pelican" and "stump" get less busty when the artist has his way is somewhat illuminating. It's like it all has to work together or something.
