Overnight Open Thread You Guys(22 Feb 2013)

Break out the Tequila, as it is National Margarita Day.

So do you think You Are Smart Enough To Be An NFL Prospect? Based on the 12 sample questions in the article, you gotta be pretty dumb not to ace the Wonderlic test. Hell, you shouldn't have graduated from high school if you can't ace this test.

Speaking of testing. Do We Need IQ Tests For Juries?

On Tuesday, the jurors had presented him with a list of ten questions which revealed that they simply did not have a clue about what they had heard as evidence, what they had been told by himself or indeed what they were supposed to be doing there at all.

For example, they asked for a definition of reaching a verdict ‘beyond reasonable doubt’. This was despite the fact that the judge had already given them guidance on this in writing.

Get yer college degree in Drone Studies.

Amid a worldwide boom in unmanned aerial vehicles, a handful of U.S. colleges have begun offering classes and even four-year degrees for students looking for jobs in the fast-growing field where even newcomers can earn six-figure salaries.

Jeb Bailey, 28, who has taken every drone-related course at Northwestern Michigan College, said one of his fellow students at the Traverse City, Mich., school recently landed a job operating unmanned aerial vehicles for a private military contractor overseas. “He got like $200,000 per year,” Bailey said. “And he didn’t even finish his associate’s degree.”

49 I had to sit through a jury selection in 2012 that took all day. The questions to the jury members were simple and straight forward. Listening to some of the dumb ass responses was incredibly taxing. One twenty-something woman kept flirting with the prosecutor and defense attorneys and trying to be funny which was an epic fail. It was truly embarrassing.

I loved watching Zoe the Border Collie. What great dogs they are. I had one in Italy that we found abandoned. He was so awesome but I couldn't bring him back to the states with me when it was time to go. I found a great home for him but it truly broke my heart to leave him.

Great. I just got back from a trip to Utica. A once prosperous, bustling city now a dead hopeless hellhole like most of the rest of Upstate NY, as the liberals and greenies forced its manufacturing base out decades ago. I commented to my co-workers that what we should be doing is getting our frack on if that area is ever to be revitalized, but we're more likely to be spending time shutting down our region's Indian Point nuclear plant.


This should give Cuomo the pretext he needs to pull it's permit and fuck the NYC metro region. I've said for the past year that he'd never do it, but lately I've been less sure of that. Interesting times indeed.

89 I know this is loooonnggg, and I apologize in advance, and I'll go to the barrell, but:

Today is George Washington's Birthday.

While I was searching for an image of the "…first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen”…, I came upon this incredible story about our 1st President and his character.
It is way better than the “Cherry Tree” tale...

George Washington - Dog Lover

George Washington was an avid hunter who bred and kept many dogs throughout his lifetime. He also had a knack for original dog names: Taster, Tippler, Forester, Vulcan, Madame Moose, Searcher, and last but not least, my favorite -- Sweet Lips.

Washington's affection for dogs is vividly illustrated in an incident that occurred during the Revolutionary War. It was when American forces were trying to contain British General William Howe's troops, who had occupied Philadelphia. During the Battle of Germantown, which was not going well for the Americans, Washington was encamped at Pennibecker's Mill.

It was a typical action of soldiers during the American Revolution to bring their dogs with them to their camps. The dogs were used for hunting game (Continental Congress supplied food wasn’t plentiful, but wild animals were more plentiful) and keeping away large beasts such as bears. The dogs were also used to track British soldiers and their allies. And dogs were also brought along for companionship, something that is seen in films and books showing stray dogs taken in by World War I (Rin-Tin-Tin was a found puppy), World War II and Gulf War American soldiers. George Washington, a dog lover himself, had brought one of his many Virginia dogs “Sweetlips” to his encampments during the war.

On October 6, 1977, during a lull in the fighting in the battle near Germantown, Pennsylvania, a stray little terrier was found wandering the battlefield grounds between the American and British lines.The dog was identified from its collar, and brought to Washington. Looking at the dog's collar which contained the owner’s name, Gen. Washington was amazed to find that the dog belonged to none other than his opposite, the Commander of all British Forces, Gen. Howe himself.

Some of the soldiers wanted to eat the dog. Some of his officers suggested that he might want to keep the dog as a sort of trophy, which might weaken the morale of the British general. Instead he took the dog into his tent, fed him and had him brushed & cleaned. Then, to the surprise of everyone, Washington ordered a cease fire. The shooting stopped and soldiers on both sides watched as one of Washington's aides formally returned the little dog to the British Commander, under a flag of truce, with a note written by his Aide-de-Camp, artillery officer Alexander Hamilton.

Even though they still wanted to defeat him, the returning of Gen. Howe's dog became a human interest story that spread to the newspapers of Great Britain, raising the respect the British had for the American Commander.

General Washington was addressed as “Your Excellency” by his men as a sign of respect.

Happy 281st Birthday, Your Excellency!

135 My Border Collie, Caleb (Caleb is the Anglicized Hebrew name, "Dog", just like Norwegians name boys Bjřrn, or "Bear"), was (RIP, he will be in Heaven if I get there) a good and faithful stock dog. He had enough power to head even my killer ram "Saddam", and could heel any number of cattle (as he proved the evening the Guernseys were all over the state road).
When the Soviet Union fell, he taught himself Russian, read up on the history of Nazi war-booty, and, with my help, finagled a study visa to Russia. He wrote his dissertation on the lost Impressionist masterpieces in the Hermitage.
To this day, some people want to call it a dog trick.

He saved the brass.

192 133 I don't think so- and they also cancelled my 3.5k rds. worth of 308 orders cuz they said no components for probably three months at least- this was my 1-4-13 order they just filled. Just so everyone knows the score- I don't suggest waiting for the ammo situation to clear up before June really esp. in CA. which is why I went in heavy early. Too bad you don't live closer- whatever you can find at pre-panic+~30% i strongly suggest you buy as much as you can. It's appreciating faster than precious metals and won't go down before June if then. Lots can happen in 6 mos. I don't think it'll be cheaper in CA. than now ever again.

Basically Fox *NEWS* is like any of the others, hires from the same places, comes from the same schools, everyone is from New York and LA, etc.

The difference is the owners and editors just don't embargo the same way, so you *sometimes* get coverage of stories the others won't cover. You know, the big "housing / CRA" coverage they briefly did, talked more about FandF, etc.

As long as their short attention span holds out.

Mostly, like everyone else, they cover soundbyte crap and sensationalist crimes, that's all, same as everyone else.

They're not actually "conservative" they're just "less blinkered / leftist" than the others.

As I previously mentioned, today, my new water heater was installed. This was not accomplished without much wailing and gnashing of teeth, mind you. It all started last night. When I got home from work, I smelled something funky. And my expensive laminate floor in the kitchen of my 68 year old home was squishy, water coming up from between the seams. Himself I went to the big Orange Box and purchased the only 30 gallon water heater in stock, and miscellaneous flexible hoses and knuckles and Lord knows what all.
Once we got home, Himself took a sawzall to the kitchen cabinet wherein the rusted hulk was kept.Himself shut off the watervalve, and drained the tank. This took at least an hour.After verifying that the time was getting late, we decided that discretion was the better part of valor, andwe went to bed.
This morning, I got to be a plumber's helper. This involved an additional two trips to the Orange Box with Himself, and listening to lots and lots of whining usingsalty language about my "raggedy ass" old house.
By 11:30, it became apparent that Himself was in over his head, and an agreement was reached to call in a plumber. Being an old house owner, I have the plumber on speed dial. Bless him, he was there in a couple of hours after finishing up another job.
The water heater was installed and indoor plumbing restored to the little house by 3:45 pm.
All is well in my little corner of the world tonight, I am happy to report.

207 The point of my first post (as somebody up there mentioned) that the small arm ammo and weapon manufacturers are limiting their sales to only those places (and Govt agencies) that allow their civilians access to the same ammo and arms.

They are deliberatly NOT selling to government agencies in local/county/state/Federal levels that prohibit civilians access to the same arms.

266 ALH - In 2009 driving from Los Angeles to NY with 2 cars, 2 kids, and a dog and kitteh. My husband's car has a flat tire in the middle of the AZ desert. It was July and hotter than hell. He couldn't get the lug nuts off the wheels. We had to call AAA and they took 4 hours to get there. Meanwhile we're sweltering and I'm having to water the cat and dog to keep them alive along with two whining kids. The AAA guy shows up and has the lug nuts off in 30 seconds using the same tool my husband had.

Yep. I had to keep my big mouth shut that day to avoid war. Still cracks me up.

Posted by: DAve at February 22, 2013 11:08 PM (XDC0v)






One of the best arguments for reloading is that it broadens your ammo supply options, especially in panic times.

The stickiest part is usually the primers. In this current buying spree, primers were available a lot longer than the common calibers of fully loaded ammo. Everyone's sold out now.

Last CA gun show I hit in Oct, I went looking for nothing but primers. It was a madhouse around the loaded ammo, but the primers didn't have much activity at the time.

Posted by: DAve at February 22, 2013 11:18 PM (XDC0v)






Saw the same thing back in '08. People tend to think in terms of loaded ammo first, then they start expanding their buying to primers/powder after everything else is sold out.

But one hard lesson I had to re-learn this time is that you should ALWAYS be buying .22LR, even in the non-panic times. It's the only ammo you can't really load at home, so you're stuck with factory loads. I'm down to about 3k rounds and I'm feeling naked. Don't even want to hit the range and dip into the supply.

I treasure that Franchi, though, it's a nice shotgun and I'm the only one who's ever put rounds through it (he won it in some contest and never even took it out of the box).

344 Having been a jury foreman, my experience was similar, but ended up giving me a new respect for the patriotism of my fellow citizens.

Lawyers and judges speak a different dialect, using terms of art. Then at the end they tell the jurors to decide the case using their own judgment, and the jurors have to figure out whether words like "beyond a reasonable doubt" have special meaning or when used together or are just words.

My jury buckled down, looked at the evidence, learned all about Medicaid coding, and said, "You want to send someone to jail for this, when there are armed robbers paroled because the prison's full? Not guilty."

One caveat, since you're shooting Glocks mostly, you'll need to test them to make sure you don't run into leading problems. Most folks using 'em with Glocks don't, but it's best to check.

Talk about a bunch of crap. Does Sebelius really think that a sick Indian will be denied a needed hospitalization? Of course not.

17. 807,000 Fewer Hospital Visits for Native Americans, Hospital Closures

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius:" The cuts required by sequestration could slow efforts to improve the delivery of health care to American Indians and Alaska Natives through the Indian Health Service (IHS) and would result in about 3,000 fewer inpatient admissions and 804,000 fewer outpatient visits provided in IHS and Tribal hospitals and clinics. IHS may lack resources to pay for the staffing and operations of five health care facilities that tribes have built with their own resources, with a total tribal investment of almost $200 million."

Precision Bullet just does pistol boolits, but I hear you. Just started reloading 7.62x54R for the Finn M39, just little gallery loads with 85g 32cal lead pistol, subsonic, just to set up some no-recoil loads for my nephews to use when I visit the family. I was really sweating the leading issue, even with the low velocity. Still haven't settled on a long-term recipe, but it's been fun to play with.

Posted by: IllTemperedCur at February 22, 2013 11:47 PM (MBqvE)

374 The Congressional Budget Office (on page 11 of its latest budget outlook, published earlier this month) estimates that while FY 2013 spending will ultimately be reduced by $85 billion, “discretionary outlays will drop by $35 billion and mandatory spending will be reduced by $9 billion this year as a direct result of those procedures; additional reductions in outlays attributable to the cuts in 2013 funding will occur in later years.”

So in this fiscal year, we would actually be looking at a $44 billion spending cut, or less than a 1.5% reduction from what federal spending otherwise would have been. It would mean that federal spending in 2013 will be about $3.553 trillion. In 2012, federal spending was $3.538 trillion.

Yes, that means that even with the sequester we will be spending slightly more in 2013 than we did in 2012. In fact, we will be spending more than we did in any year in American history except for 2011 (when we spent $3.598 trillion)... Just sayin.

It would be pretty easy to build a modern counterpart on a one-ton or 1.5 ton 4X4 dually chassis. Diesel preferred. Even non-armor steel plate in 3/8 or 1/2" thickness ought to stop most small-arms fire. The skate rail to support the .50 cal has to be very sturdy.
Look at the replica Vietnam gun trucks that some collectors have built on the M135 chassis. Those trucks, as surplus, are readily available, and not very expensive.
If the intended use would be to break mobs of FSA marauders, a Gatling-style 12 ga. shotgun would be an awesome main gun. As far as shooting it out with modern armor operated by the military, I don't think that would be life-enhancing.

376 360 harleycowboy,

I've gone on at length over the years...Jesus when I'm around i am a 700-2600 post per week idiot that I want to make an interlocking set of businesses when wife and i get back control of our destiny...but it has been SO long since I've been part of a win on any scale since 2010....

so anyway there are underserviced niches of Magazine demand in the C+R and foreign pistol and rifle markets Backwards Boy, Diogenes lamp and some others have machining skills and Backwards Boy is wobbly on work in the field...

I just think it would be a prudent investment and a worthy action to try to get a kickstarter going building magazines so long as there was ANY margin of profit because if we can generate a business model that works and teaches a set of skills that can be applied later to those of us in need of a new start if the thing grows it is a public service and a force multiplier.

The media is acting as sword and shield for evil right now more overtly than ever before and in still relatively unassailable because our leaders are either weak or in on the gag.....

the donks in the late 60s and early 70s were engaged in overt trial fixing and show trials and political protection of domestic terrorists, our side won't return fire on that set of lanes whether ever or yet....

so we need to outwork the bastards which ain't hard....FreeShit Army ain't driven.

From a political and "can't stop the signal, Mal" standpoint, might be a good idea to manufacture and market the dies used to stamp the mag parts for later welding/assembly.

One thing I'd like to see the 3D printer guys look into is expansion boxes for existing 5 or 10 round AR mags to convert to 30 rd. I suspect that the assembly would be a lot more durable than the completely 3D printed mag, simply because the feed lips are the original stamped steel.

407 393 ThereAre5,

the United States was born in two phases, and phase one in my eyes is the closest to divine wisdom man has generated that was arguably not whispered in man's soul directly by god but a recognition of our state before and because of Him.

The Constitution was a tune up.

That Barry Soetoro deigns to think that a document that "sadly is mostly a statement of negative liberty saying what government cannot do" shows that like the conservation on the "retard genius" who did not get a morons' use of Dante at some point this week Barry doesn't get the American condition.....or maybe he does.

Like I said common men unfettered move mountains....

the welfare state and hyperregulatory state as practiced right now are not allowing the unfettered man to breathe.

Sorry to be "lyrical", but those documents and the ideas our founding were trying to assert were the fuel that got me out of poverty.

I need to climb back into the math books before I go much further on
this whole degree thing. I'm struggling with f'n algebra ffs, I shudder
to think what will happen when it's time to get into anything heavier.
Into circuit analysis now, it's killing me. Mostly cause I'm not happy
with just getting the right answer, I have to over analyze all of it so I
know how THEY got the answer (cause sometimes it's not the same way as
how I got the answer).

Hey - It's not impossible. I went back for a BS at age 35, stuck it out and finished with an MS at age 40.

The very hardest part really was at the beginning, and going for tutorial sessions while swallowing my pride, to get remedial algebra. I'd aced it in high school, but that had been a lifetime ago, and didn't remember a damn thing.

Once I'd conquered that, I blasted through the required Physics, Calculus(1, 2, 3) Differential Equations, Linear Equations, Adjustment Theory, and then on to the actual major specific hard stuff.

So, it can be done. What helped me the most was having life experience, and applying all those equations in a way that helped answer situations I had been through, but never been able to understand formally, before.

Good luck, guy. I'm Serious.

414 The concept and application of reasonable doubt is very difficult.

Whether it benefits a particular person is dependent on the understanding and articulation of the court, the person's lawyer, and the corresponding apprehension/comprehension of a juror.

As a practical matter, it often comes down to the jury's instinctive sense: are we going to let this person get away with it, or are we going to place our selves in the defendant's shoes?

It takes years and a lot of experience to understand reasonable doubt.

I've looked at making magazines ... it's mostly getting existing dimensions off of an existing (preferably good) design and then executing some sheetmetal work. If you're skilled at origami, this isn't too tough, as the sheetmetal in question is 22 gauge or so. The spring is the tough part. Good quality music wire, properly formed then heat treated might work. Detailed inspection of existing items (magazines, springs) helps when doing any reverse-engineering exercise.

Fortunately, 2014 will be here soon, and I think a lot of these problems will disappear.

then, Velma decided to accuse me of cheating on her. which I haven't done. she is paranoid about this and she has low self-esteem to begin with. it was all via text. and to top it off I was a bit of a jerk in responding to her. so I'm insulted by her accusation but I also feel bad about how I responded.

then, I lose my garage door opener somewhere. I have no idea where it is. probably on some parking lot in the town somewhere.

Because they're the generic equivelant, I understand they have parts that are not domestically made although they are assembled in the US. Most of the parts are interchangeble with the Mossys. If you want to change the foregrip you're going to have to get Mossberg parts, the action bars are pinned into the Maverick foregrip rather than having a foregrip that is removable from the action tube. I like my Maverick a lot.

437 421 RWC,

They are assembled in mexico, and have "arguably" lesser material but not outside the margin of safety for some components.....

The joy of that is that they are ~80-95% product compatible with the Mossy 500s so you want a product improved trigger?

Pop it in or have a smith do so....

want that security receiver to work for a nice slug bore?

Go buy the mossy bore.

Want 8 shot capacity?

It fits, and if you hire the right guys it is easy to make Native part compliant and customize....

Basically the target market are practical shooters on a budget who are not using it for say three gun....

I'd own one if I hadn't already had a remmy 870 that was too good to pass up, and my Ithaca 37 hunger pangs....

Wal_Marts that sell guns may have them so if inspired take a field trip and comparison shop...

Happy Shooting

You need to do what makes you happy brother, and it is hard to be happy without trust.

You know my past w/the love of my life...life gets messy at times and if a person has trust issues when you are in "my heart can't beat without you" phase of the relationship it will be hard to salvage when the itches hit cyclically.

My Dad has serious trust issues, and it has destroyed his life with women to a degree....it is just as ugly coming the other way.

I sincerely hope you either have the one, or find the one bud....

Sequestration means less security at U.S. nuclear facilities, Energy Secretary Steven Chu wrote to the committee: "Our security posture at sites and facilities would be eroded due to project deferrals and workforce reassignments." Sequestration would also "degrade the internal oversight function of DOE nuclear facilities and reduce the depth and frequency of audits and evaluations needed to ensure ongoing robust security operations," Chu wrote.

497 Even more reason. If you are dating someone and start looking for ways to avoid them because of their disposition - well it won't get better. This isn't just a warning flag - it's a true SOS. You should be looking for ways to be around her and be excited about it.

Bad times happen in every relationship so you have to have some solid foundation of trust so that you both don't crumble when the shit goes down.

498 475 ChemJeff,

and all relationships tend to have ideally alternating phases of the drain and the battery....

and though I never got my military career I wanted for as long as I had hoped by some "someone left on the irony" or God hears your plans you'll hear laughter twist of fate for 15 years I have been her battery and she has been my anchor.

Not putting you down either on "goddamnit suck it up" b/c that is not my point I apologize if I am not too clear I really am about to log I'm zoning and I respect you enough I don't ant to be a dick by accident or design...

If her angst is beyond bearing she cannot be the one, now you may need to look hard at what your load limits are and make an educated analysis of your calculated risk potential on the issue but at the end of the day you have to have a mutual and interlocking set of traits that renders the sum more than the parts to have the best order of probability for success.

When I strayed and wife and I damn near flew apart the ONLY thing that saved us was the dual action of:

1) I am sorry, but I did love her and we were not communicating on kids the most vital issue discussed at length in our courtship...I am sorry and it will not happen again I am ashamed.....

and

2) we are unarguably a better team than solo act on both our parts if there is any hope of trust and realigning our dreams we should try.

It's a full contact sport bud...and an exercise in complete trust and the unity of soul and life that can beget life.....

no more serious issue on Earth for our species....

listen to your heart but talk to your mind too.

502 Chemjeff -- as you know, I'm a big believer of "give it time and see how things work out".....but wild jealous accusations are a big, fat, flashing "EXIT" sign. Especially if you acted poorly in dealing with these texts, you may try going through things in person in a neutral setting to ensure that there aren't misunderstandings. For example, I had a bad reaction to prescription antibiotics for a lung infection in the early stages of my relationship with the BH, and as a follow-on, the BH would frequently talk about her dates with the other boyfriend -- the spotted one. And of late, I'll talk about having a hot date with someone who I treat as being this little French flirt....whose name is "Advil" -- "I will take her in my hands, sip champagne with her on my lips, and it's off to bed!".

When you are REALLY interested in someone, even their farts are cute. It seems as if maybe the fear of breaking up might be keeping you hanging on.

Personal experience has taught me that, if it isn't working out, rip off the band-aid.

If there's one thing that makes a break-up worse, it's having a someone drag you along because they think you just can't manage without them.

When that happens, you not only have to deal with the pain of the break-up, but with the insult that comes from the suggestion that you would break into a million pieces.

Ever hear the phrase He's just not that into you?

AOP: I've seen the ribbon-spring types, but mostly in bolt-action rifles. Without checking, I think the 10-round Lee Enfield magazine is an example.

But all of the 20 round (and larger) magazines I've seen are of the rectangular-coil type. I'd be interested in seeing any other box designs that use anything different.

The Calico 50- and 100-round helical magazines use a coil spring of some sort, but they are not box magazines.

From the ABC piece on sequestration:



29. Untended Nukes

Sequestration means less security at U.S. nuclear facilities, Energy
Secretary Steven Chu wrote to the committee: "Our security posture at
sites and facilities would be eroded due to project deferrals and
workforce reassignments." Sequestration would also "degrade the internal
oversight function of DOE nuclear facilities and reduce the depth and
frequency of audits and evaluations needed to ensure ongoing robust
security operations," Chu wrote.

527 Sven-

I just completely stole from you. Unattributed. I posted on my FB page this:

I have been considering, on a late Friday PM, that my contemporaries, and I, could literally "move a mountain" if we didn't have the DoL, OSHA, EPA, DHS, HHS, DoJ, DoI, DoE et al giving us a rectal exam 24/7...

Lots of folk could...

If men were actually "free" to gain. To try. Maybe fail. And if need-be die in the pursuit of honest gain, we would be a better society. At at the end of the day freedom is not about freedom from failure, or loss, it is about mutual interlocking self-interest. But now the left have been allowed to co-opt that and calls it "greed." I am not trying to be obtuse or argumentative. But I'm fatigued.

The usurper Barack Obama and his administration are not the warm-up act for my soul.

I've got plenty of sins, and one day I will answer Him for them.

But keep taking away my rights and punishing us as producers. At a point we will stop being used.

I AM A FREE MAN WITH GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS. I WILL NOT ALWAYS CONTINUE TO SUBMIT AND CAPITULATE TO A TREASONOUS GOVERNMENT.

Take that, as you will, for what it's worth.


It is wrong of me to have done so. But you captured my sentiments succinctly, and brilliantly. So, I'm probably going to Hell. But not because I plagiarized you.

t-bird: If you look at current box magazine springs, they can compress from taking up space for 15 rounds (30 double-stack) to perhaps 2 rounds, or 7 single stack to maybe 1. This is a factor of 7 or 8 in length change. Most other spring designs will not stretch or compress this much.

My experience with reworking existing finished parts is that such work is difficult, prone to failure, and usually does not work well. I can show you many examples.

I think the easiest way to make a rectangular magazine spring is to make a rectangular form, with radiused edges, then wrap annealed wire around it ("x" number of turns, but spaced far apart) then heat-treat and see if the result works.

Thank you. Compatriot. You are a gracious fellow. I think that we would probably be buddies IRL.

I actually "chatted" with an Aunt (my Dad's sister, who is not "political". She say's she reads 'me' all the time, but "can't comment"). My FB page is "my blog". I am doing my best to be educational and "provocative?" to the few LIV friends, but mostly real friends and family.

I loved Sci-Am growing up. I had issues back to 1963 and up into the 90s. I'd go through all sorts of articles -- figuring that even if I didn't have a faint clue then, just surface knowledge of something so different might come in handy later. And I gave it all up when they started that shit. They still send letters saying I could come back as "alumni".

Not with that vile, loathsome, unscientific propaganda.

IIRC, Rum had IRL stuff come up, got crosswise with some regulars, and got shat on by a troll at around the same time -- and took some time away....which stretched, and stretched, and stretched, 'cause she's not the type to mope and is "going places". She's popped in a couple of times since -- it's not that she's anti-Horde -- but her dance card rapidly got filled-to-overflowing by other dancers.

Last time I saw her (at Disney, natch), she was healthy, happy, and busier than hell.

Seamus Muldoon,

I was living in St. Paul, MN in 1983, and my best friend had a sweet dog named Beauty. She was part lab, and left large piles in the yard over winter. I loaned my snow shovel to my friend to clean up his yard in the spring, and the next day we had a blizzard.

I had to shovel my car out with my dust pan, because I was parked on the side of the street the snow plows would go through first, and could not afford the ticket and storage for the city to move my car.

I moved to El Paso Texas the next fall.

Now I live in New Mexico and clean the dog poo every other day, so I don't have so much to pick up.

It's been hard to keep a snow shovel handy, tho, but my BH has built me a pooper-scooper out of PVC pipe and some leftover materials from another project.

Went blues dancing at Andante Blues tonight. Very fun crowd, very friendly and a lot of good dancers. We even had some gal walk in off the street wanting to know what all the dancing was about, and I spent 15 minutes telling her about the Colorado Springs dancing scene. Hopefully she'll come back next Friday for the beginner's lesson!

704 OT, random, stupid shit from my head. I spent the evening splitting a bunch of wood I cut 4 months ago. Many red oak logs that split into absolutely beautiful things that I will gleefully burn. A smaller number of maple logs that made me curse repeatedly because they were still green enough to split badly, tendrels of wood holding split logs together. All of it was productive in a frontier way, never mind that I used a chainsaw to cut them and hydrolics to split them. Doing this boring, repedative work connected me to the roots I imagine I have, self sufficient pioneers, providing for themselves.




That's what I'd like to think, but who am I kidding? I'm just an insurance agent cutting wood. The chainsaw was fun and so was the splitter. My dad grew up in the hardscrabble south and put himself through medical school. I'm jazzed about using a machine properly. " Lesser sons of greater fathers" indeed.

Strike that. My dad worked his ass off to make a better life for me. I am the undeserving beneficiary of that effort, but by cutting and splitting my own wood, rather than just buying it, I am honoring his effort. That's all true, but still...never mind. If I got much further down this path I'll start to whine, and I don't whine. Dad taught me that much.


The wood is nice, though, I'm sitting in front of a great roaring fire enjoying it. Enjoying it burn.

Seamus,
Sorry I was distracted by my doggies going out and leaving more "presents" for me on the lawn.

My favorite chapters in you book are the more happy endings type, where Seamus went on an adventure, and wasn't just missing, since I knew going in that your father-in-law had disappeared.

I kept hoping he found a happy adventure, instead of just being gone.

I don't know how else to explain the real enjoyment I got from most of the book.

I read a lot, and will go back and re-read to pick an exact chapter, K?

Because I really enjoyed your writing style, and have read probably five books since I read yours.

I was an unfortunate (in a way) experiment of speed-reading in grade school, and read so many things in a month, I sometimes lose track.

But it is one of the books on my Kindle that I click on to keep it up where I can find it to re-read on the 300+ list I have .

I really should find a better way to organize my Kindle!

A ways back one night in a fit of anger and forgetting her Mastress of the Sith Arts cred I unloaded on Maus Haus and she said "I just cam't haye mickey."

Well of course me being me I recalled she was prone to ranting about an assignment she had hated on the color purple "and they're off."

Rum and I would duel for the magic post, hell sometimes I had maybe ten posts a week b/c well "life."

To throw her off her game I'd start in on Whoopsie and Orca and fluster her....

Once she bypassed the witty banter and just blurted, "what the fuck did I ever do to you?" Because I had taken her 3of maybe 4 days in a row.

I was afraid I'd done her wrong but she's her and was just growly.


Anyway I was absent when she drifted, and I'm angry she was hurt, and happy she's well.

The world can be a heartbreaket, and for a Sith Lord she was a ray of light, and a valued presence by a lot of us, but I can believe, respect, and be overjoyed she is well and on her feet despite missing her.

Was not meaning to impose, and sincerely thank you for the heads up she's a gem.

Anybody who thinks that jury instructions on reasonable doubt are at all clear is very confused. This is one of the most nonsensical parts of American law. Technically it means "beyond ALL rational doubt." If you have ANY doubt that is not actually irrational to entertain, you are instructed to acquit. But that is insane, so the instructions try to hide the actual meaning.

I'm sure there is plenty of evidence that you wouldn't want to put your fate in the hands of 12 random people who failed to get out of jury duty, but confusion over jury instructions (written or not) is not one of them.

I thought that was what was being discussed but saw the 2000 number and figured i screwed up again. Annealing will take place for a lot of steel in the range of 1400 deg F or less. The hardening/quenching for most steel is in the 1800 range.

This is from memory on the stuff I've worked with so specifics may vary some. But for Hardening you juut have to get it above a temp and quench, which can for this purpose be done by color. Annealing is where you want to be more exact.

Weirddave,

My hubby and I just had my niece (who is like a daughter) and her fiance over last weekend, and he is from east coast, and in the military, and we had such a good weekend.

The fiance's favorite part (I think,except for dinner) was when we sat out on the deck watching the sunset, and the stars come up, and he was allowed to keep stoking the fire, and watch the stars above.

He has live out on the east coast, and told me they didn't have a chance to see many stars, and he hasn't been camping nearly enough to have a good fire.

He really enjoyed stoking the fire and we even gave him a "pokin stick" to rearrange to his satisfaction.

Having a good wood pile is a blessing in life. And good for you for building one!

I wasn't taking it as an imposition, as such, but rather in the sense of "bringing third parties into two-party jokes is likely to completely scramble them because of a random eyebrow-lift in the wrong place for the joke". Which, of course, can easily lead to the "shared private experience seeming lewd when referenced by someone else" or "shared embarrassment becomes mortal shame with third party" predicates -- neither of which are very fun for the third party.

As Ace himself has said, at 23214 words IIRC, humor is sometimes best left to the professionals.

That said, I'm kinda getting an odd subtext (which could be largely caused by the egregious typos) that there is something more between you two -- which, again, is a place where I'm reluctant to go. If I might be a help to you both, you'll have to be a bit clearer. I'm willing to be a facilitator to the advantage of both here.....but I won't be a tool.

I made one earlier and some of our table mates were aghast at my use of the phrase.

I mentioned that I had read a recent report about the Algerian assault on the terrorists and hostages at the gas facility. One tidbit tucked into a footnote n the report was that while press accounts reported Algerian special forces assaulted in helicopters, it turns out that the lead elements of the assault were inserted in a convoy of short buses. apparently the Algerian definition of special forces and our definition of special forces are different.Sometimes these things do not translate well.

I am not ruling out that the story it may have been too long and or unwieldy or that it was plain stupid.

It takes a lot to "abscond with my goat" as you so chivalry phrased it.

I grew up in different times, and so appreciate people with wit who aren't afraid to use it.

I have had a lot of people tell me that I look too much to the bright side, and always find the silver lining when there are dark clouds overhead, but I think in the long term it has helped me to not be too stressed out.

Hecks, even in the middle of a biker war, I could find appreciation in the food we had and the fact there was a lot of ammo handy and the sheriff wasn't too worried.

Well, I am a typist of way of being a CPA and must type correctly on the tax forms and audited financial statements,because clients so hate it when you leave an important letter out of the word assets

And yes, being a Bond villian would suck, even going back to the teeth catching a bullet days. Can you imagine the $$ that dude had to spend for dental insurance?

And, sven -- I've got 25 years in as an auditor, trained to trigger at the slightest contradiction.>>

Private or State?


Posted by: Buzzsaw at February 23, 2013 02:59 AM (qo244)


Private -- and it was really overstating things, but there's a story with that. I first did 6 years in public accounting trying to convince the dipshit Board of Accounting that I had two years of experience (at one point, my file was lost for 17 months because some bureaucrat went on maternity leave). Once I got my CPA certificate, I was officially not a slave, so I went to where the money was.

I ended up as "Controller" of a company whose previous "Office Manager" had a brain tumor that killed her within 12 months. In theory, a Controller would continue the auditing thing because his accounting staff would give him stuff and he'd evaluate its validity......in practice, not only did I have to fend-off a cash flow crisis (there was $40K in cash, $20K in bi-weekly payroll, $200K in receivables, and $1.2M in payables when I walked in the door), but I had to overhaul production as well (the $1.2M in payables was due to there being unshipped inventory in every room in the building.....including the men's bathroom). In my 7-1/2 years there, I ran the production floor -- building work schedules, manually working up MRP, assessing and creating a strategy for critical parts, streamlining workflow -- no less than 7 distinct times. In my "off-time", I also managed to complete the construction of an HQ building where the GC had folded midway into the project.

So.....it was a stretch to say that was still "auditing".

I've been the Controller of two other places, which were more of a "review and manage subordinates" gig.....and done Sarbanes-Oxley consulting for a few years (which, by contrast, is more classical auditing than even my original years in public accounting were). So I'm not all that far off. But the auditing mindset has a way of sticking with you even through all the other things you do.

825 It was a picture of a cabin or something. House. Wood and stuff. Looked a little run down, but like some work is being done on it. Snow. Green metal roof. Carport on the left, station wagon or SUV mostly out of shot on the right. Conifers in the background, bare deciduous trees around the house. Dead grass under the snow. Log sides facing, further back shingles, maybe a separate building. Brick chimney.

cthulhu,

Let's not get TOO technical here.

I advocate for some kind of flat tax, not the thousands and thousands of pages of the tax code, which NO-ONE reads except tax preparers.

Did anyone here know that there are different depreciation rates for trees in orchards, depending upon which types of trees you have? Of course not. But some senator's son or BIL had a certain type, so it's different.

It IS crazy, and it should be much more simple, even if I don't have enough work to keep me personally busy, there would be more efficiency in the whole system.

But who am I to opine?

Why, I am the person that can charge you to prepare your tax return, because there is no way you can understand it, unless you take a bunch of continuing education classes every year for 30 years, which is how long I have been working in this field.

So THERE!

I'm in Silicon Valley, CA, and have been most of my adult career. Looking to GTFO. If you stripped all the governments off the world and only left people and resources, this area could be hugely more successful -- as in more than 10x. Instead, all the resources are locked behind government intervention (you can't even buy paint thinner, much less drill for oil -- and 5/12 of the top US hydrocarbon sites are here); all the wages are locked behind illegal immigrants; all the working conditions are locked behind the black market; all the land uses are locked behind a dysfunctional legal system....

Well, thank you for that lovely description of a get-away place.

It sounds lovely to me.I love having a get-away place.

As a matter of fact, my husband and I right now are what up North, when I lived in Minnesota, we called snow birds.

The fun part is, we live about 20 miles from our "summer home".

We stay in the Tularosa basin in the winter, and in the summer, we drive the 20 miles up into the Sacramento Mountains, where the temperature is 20 degrees cooler than the 100+ temps down here.

I don't know why He blessed us to have both places, but I thank Him every day, and the fact that we both have jobs in this economy.

When BH and I were in Hawaii when he was TDY they were trying to tell me where I could find the orchids on the trees, but I could neverfind them.

I do love seeing them, tho, they are beautiful.

One thing I do want to point out about moving to Texas, is the property taxes because they don't have a state income tax. Before you move there, check out the area, because the taxes might be very high.

In New Mexico, we have a state income tax, but the highest rate is 5%.

I think TN has only state income tax on investment income, interest and dividends, but I haven't prepared a return there for a while.

Anyway, it's something to check into if you are serious about a big move.

Ceding territory still sits badly with me. But we're kind of too far down that road, thanks to everyone that ran away.

I did get into a big argument with the VP of the NRA years ago over them walking away (mostly) from the CA AWB battle in the late 90s at Front Sight. She said California was "a better example than an investment" and I kind of told her the same went for the NRA - example of backstabbing.

The NRA kind of saw the light after a leadership change, but still most of the heavy lifting is local, and fractured. Lots of pushy PC "pro-gun democrats" and egos keeping people from cooperating.

No, that wasn't a 60s series, that was an 80s John Carpenter movie called They Live. With the glasses.

Merovign,
I had the same kind of discussion with NRA reps about New Mexico a while back (about 10 years or so) and could not believe they weren't concerned about the CA and type of people moving into my state.

They seemed to think they could "hold it" because back then they had enough supporters.

Thank Him we have a good governor today, because there are way too many of the crazy types, but I will keep up my end of the good fight.

The NRA seemed to think we had enough of the ranchers and live and let live types living here that they did't need to worry, but too many outsiders have moved here now.

They're a DC lobbying group heavily integrated with the government. They're only temporarily part of the solution, in the long term they're part of the problem.

In the short term, however, I do with more than a few percent of gun owners would get off their fat asses long enough to sign up. 45 million instead of 4.5 million would go a long way toward staunching the blood-red flow of civil rights from the citizenry.

878 In The Invaders the alien had a finger abnormality that gave them away. Something like a long pinky or something that was easy to do in makeup as opposed to going yakuza on the actors. I can barely remember since I was maybe three or four when that show ran. In fact, all I can really recall is the opening. The actual story in each episode tended to be way too mundane to hold a little kid's attention.

885 The stories were basic but some of the actors were quite good, though they were mostly just studio regulars. Some of the writing wasn't bad, though a lot was perfunctory.

Don't watch it if you tend toward paranoia, because Every Was Out To Get Him!!!

*Some* (most) of the invaders had a deformity of the bone structure or inability to control "the fourth finger" as they put it. When he found out it wasn't all of them was a great and creepy scene with a woman he thought was his ally.

"We're not all like that, David. Some of us learn. (smiles sadly) We're always learning. (David moves back) Don't go! Don't fight us! You can't stop it, it's going to happen!"

The actress did a good job of the multiple transitions in that scene, basic as it was.

Eventually we find out this is not their natural form, and they need periodic "recharges" to maintain it.

The writers went back and forth between "heart attack" and "cerebral hemorrhage" on that one, I think they stuck to the latter as they went on.

A small disc held in the hand, with lights on it, held to the back of the neck (usually).

I like invasion series, War of the Worlds was also cheap but good (in the first season, the second was more implausible though it had a few episode - and they killed off my favorite character and replaced him with TV'S Highlander.

The first was creepier and had better badinage.

887 One thing that is really cool about the Walt Disney Family Museum is that it has his bankruptcies, where he was screwed out of Oswald, the animator's union strike, and the Alice shorts.




That's not to mention the Marceline family farm's auction, the failure of his father's farm, his breakups with distributors. The narration in the elevator between the first 1/4 and the second 1/4 is something like (in Walt's voice) "one thing you need in your 20s is a good solid FAIL".

901 Handgrips too short, Anna. Should be able to stand on it and fly. It had a "gas pedal" between the rails, IIRC.

The original (fictional) was light enough to carry, I bet this one isn't.

I still want one. I would give a lot to fly through the clouds standing on a flying wing. I've been there in planes but it's not the same.

I would wear a parachute, though.

I didn't see anything about it on Drudge. Where did you hear about it?

Bright meteors at night are pretty common. It's the daylight ones that are really newsworthy.

Also, I think that people are probably looking at the sky more since Chelyabinsk and are noticing them more.

908 The Invaders?

I loved that show. It was The Fugitive with aliens instead of a one armed man. I had a model of the Invaders flying saucer--you could take the top off of it and see the ship's control room and interior bulkheads. I had a model of the Spindrift from Land of the Giants too, and I would dog fight 'em.

The Invaders is out on disc now season 1 is rather better than season 2 on average, although I have to say the coolest thing about watching them now is checking out the cars. Well, that and the stable of guest stars that were staples on TV when I was a kid--Commodore Dekker, Cloud William, and Dr. Crater from Star Trek show up, there's an early appearance from Gene Hackman, and Suzanne Pleshette.

913 Cthulu,

ah yeah no...

No she is just an interesting "friend on the box" I've never met her and my admiration of her was just her sense of humor and my gratitude is based on her making me smile which at times is not an easy trick....

She was a godsend in her cheerfulness once when wife was on 72 hours of communications lockdown because her unit took casualties about every two hours over three days.

Peaches was a blessing too....

happy blinky box is a lot like Loki doer of good doer of evil..it's all in how we use it and I'd never try to use it to hurt any moron here on purpose.

Anyway I just miss her and when I found out tollololos were part of her moving on it bothered me.

Thanks though for looking out for her.

Auditor eh? Professional levels of wariness I did about 5 years of tax prep and understand the mindset if not the methods and tricks of the trade we'll have to share redacted war stories sometime.

914 OK, the California fireball was pretty impressive according to reports here:

http://tinyurl.com/ad43l44

Averaging the magnitude estimates, it appears to have been brighter than the full moon (-13). I tend to doubt the -27 reports, which would make it brighter than the sun. (Remember, the magnitude scale is logarithmic.) I think we can safely say it was "fucking bright".

Posted by: rickl at February 23, 2013 08:04 AM (sdi6R)

915 I haven't heard any guesses about the magnitude of Chelyabinsk, except for some witnesses that said it was brighter than the sun.

It's hard to put a number on something like that, since it only lasted a few seconds and there's nothing to compare it with.
