UK's Credit Rating Downgraded

Super.

And don't think we're any better: The American public continues clinging to the Debtor's Delusion that we can forever spend more than we have.

These are shamanistic times. Everything is magic, isn't it? The reasoning man tells the public the obvious truth and the charlatan tells the public an obvious lie, but a pleasing one; of course the public prefers to believe in Magical Lies.

Won't last. Shan't. Shouldn't.

So Sick You Guys. Open Thread You Guys.

*sigh*


The Mother to start. Bit of background info. The wife and I started a bit of a tradition about a year ago. Every Friday night it's possible, we have "pizza and movie night" with our drunken midgets. We order pizza and they pick whatever movie they want. (We're currently watching The AristoCats.) So Mom calls me at work. "I'm fixing spaghetti tonight. You guys wanna come over?" "Mom, I appreciate it, but you know it's Friday. It's pizza and movie night. Thank you, but we'll do it another time." "Ok. Fine." Click. Love you too Mom!

Now, the eldest drunken midget apparently is physically incapable of simply sitting her ass down on the couch and watching the movie she picked. She's rolling all over the couch like an idiot. The younger drunken midget has decided to see how many times she can physically go to the bathroom in the span of one movie.

95 Bloods gang member caught in New Jersey with 100 bags of heroin hidden in his anus
Rasoul Speight, 32, was travelling to upstate New York with a stash of heroin worth from $1,000 to $2,000 hidden in his rectum, police said. He and a passenger were caught on Thursday after a routine traffic stop.



The cops caught a whiff of marijuana and searched the car, but found nothing.
Speight and Sylak, though, both had outstanding traffic warrants and were arrested, police said in a statement.

At the station house, cops found 100 bags of heroin — or about $1,000 to $2,000 worth — concealed in [Speight's] anus and undetectable at the scene," the report said.
An officer at the Palisades Interstate Parkway department refused to comment on how police found the hidden drugs.

Thanks I almost put on my dancing shoes and went short essay.

The combination of the Alamo, George Wasginton's B-day, and our impending doom had me focused and cogent.

I'll try not to fall prey to sense again.

That Crockett was not a susperhero is sorta the point, a hero was enough.

Texas needs her myth and I am not mocking, handled correctly Alamo the film is a unifying work of art for our communities and by God I miss "America" being "us" but not enough to cave to the marxists.

Among Republicans polled? In only two categories (foreign aid and unemployment benefits) did a majority support spending cuts.

When only 21% of Republicans support cuts to Medicare and 30% support increased agriculture spending (28% for cuts) we're fucked you guys.

But you go on fantasizing about a public yearning for a fiscally conservative third party. I'm sure that the 10% polled who favor cutting federal education spending will be all over it you guys.

115 In a game of debasing currency, the weakest players hit the wall first--Britain, probably Japan, EU if no breakup of Eurozone, maybe US last. Switch places between US and EU if PIIGS leave. When the U.S. enters a new recession (as defined by NBER) expect the deficit to spiral--further useless stimuli/temporary tax cut deals. When the Fed is forced to raise interest rates to account for risk, game over as the interest payments eat all taxes. Estimated burn time---3-10 years.

We can recover from this but it will take a realignment or consolidation of political power on the level of 1896 or 1932.

122 101 Jmel,

Dante was a vital piece of our collective western identity and was acknowledged as a beautiful work of art by no less than Joseph Fucking Stalin Communist Manifestooid Numba Won!

You cannot ever hope to improve if you are not trained in critical introspection from a baseline PoV for God's sake and Dante is as religious in its intent and content as "Bob Roberts."

I sincerely sympathize with your problem and had I finished my degree and took a job in History ed would likely totally empathize as well.

Keep fighting the good fight and if you get blowback set up a paypal and I'll kickstart your defense fund....

You grasp the inherent beauty and strength inherent in "Midway through life's journey I went astray...."

Hell I put this on my reflective Ramp Vest in ink at work....

“Through me you pass into the city of woe:
Through me you pass into eternal pain:
Through me among the people lost for aye.
Justice the founder of my fabric moved:
To rear me was the task of Power divine,
Supremest Wisdom, and primeval Love.
Before me things create were none, save things
Eternal, and eternal I endure.
Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.”


It's a lecture to read your goddamned history and try harder...

God bless you

124 Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

You Guys.

Hell, they've only avoided raising interest rates by buying our debt. How does that work? We ourselves money?? Can I borrow my mortgage payment from myself? How about enough for a Maserati too?

Once that game is up, interest rates - real interest rates, those demanded by real, arm's length lenders, not kabuki bullshit rates - will skyrocket to compensate lenders for the risk of galloping inflation, or further Democrat Administrations, which is pretty much the same thing.

As noted repeatedly before, the ranks of the Free Shit Army are not confined to the Democratic Party.

And as noted repeatedly before, the habit of deficit spending lets people who are actually in the Free Shit Army pretend that they're not actually in it. More ag subsidies? More edumacation handouts? How's about some high speed trains? Fuck, sure, why not, as long as my taxes aren't going up. Gimme more Free Shit.

Tell you what. Let's raise taxes on everyone, across the board, to the level required to be operating with a zero deficit this year.

THEN re-run that poll. Once all this various Shit is no longer Free. Once it comes with a painful real world price tag.

The results will show a dramatic swing, I guarantee you.

146 121 elle,

historically correct scene would be "wind kicked up"...I like the inference that David Crockett got that Jim Bowie was an original "American psycho' and enjoyed Davy getting his own "moment of glory" on and that happened.

Historically wobbly but factually not "imaginary in data" scene?

"You pass the taters, I'll pass 'em back."

The Red Stick War is another "unknown little scrum" that was hard fought by both sides.

I think Crockett was as much a pacifist reluctant warrior at heart as Daniel Boone, and I am awed by his aid to Texas in her need, and his service to Andrew Jackson's militia.

You gotta watch the accurate as hell reluctant marksmen.....

He feels a connection to those in that layer, if you know what I mean. I don't want to get in trouble with my principal if he complains. At the same time, I feel the children need to be exposed to Dante, if only briefly. It's a mess. How far we have fallen as a culture!

If it was me, and that student said anything to the principal about my lack of sensitivity, I'd look upon it as an opportunity to perhaps push back against the kid's social programming and directly challenge the supposition of any bigotiness. Maybe by saying that 30 years ago, this wouldn't have been an issue and the students would have looked upon it as a lesson in literature only.

Which is easy for me to say, since I'm not in your position, plus I'm a Moron. The list of things I give a shit about is small and getting smaller.

When the government cant give em any more free stuff...when the economy fully collapses on them...when they cant afford food or electricity...then they will finally be almost ready.But not quite.We will still need the Zombie Cannibal Apocalypse. Once they have spent a good 6 months hunting each other down and feeding on the flesh of their comrades to survive and burning down their rent to own furniture piece by piece to stay warm and their numbers have thinned to about 3% of the population, then we can talk about fixing it.But first let it burn, and let them eat their own.

You have to learn to think like a politician to udnerstand why both sides of the aisle are behaving as they are.


They know there are no painless ways out. None. But the pain can be delayed, and they will play musical chairs in the hope that they can get out in time to avoid the blame for the final catastrophe.


In the meantime the watchword in congress is that no one can suffer. Because everyone is some congress-critter's constituent.


This also explains why the rare truth-speakers are also kind of nutty.

You might want to assign 1984 as a precursor to what actually has happened or Brave New World.

Also point out that sodomy has historically been a crime and an offense against nature due to it's nihilistic tendencies and anti human result. These are facts of history and cannot be denied. Much as liberals would like to change history, even they can't change it all. Which is why they try their best to eliminate it or create faux images that masquerade as history through film and TV.

I wouldn't want to deal with anyone under 40 these days. Unless they're from rural flyover country, then maybe.

228 It is also true in England (as it is here) that a lot of people Vote For The Left Because They Vote For The Left, because they grew up being told anything but that is EVIL and racist and eats children.

I am not even joking about how thick the propaganda is.

Those are probably among the most likely people to move out of the shitholes (not as dedicated to the ideology), and then vote reflexively and stupidly after they go.

I've got a computer controlled milling machine. I could probably machine any sort of magazine I wanted with it, though most of them are just bent metal, which is much more economical to manufacture.

I've been noticing some people have been fabing AR15 magazines out of three dimensional printers. That's probably the easier way to go for small quantities.

It's the same with immigrants. I had several different legal]/b] immigrants working for me not too long ago. Whenever they brought up politics, they would reveal they voted D. When I politely asked why, they would say "because we were told they were the guys immigrants should vote for". I would say something like "Oh that's right, the Republicans are the ones who are anti-immigrant."


It wasn't until our last night in business I actually socratically challenged the Indian guy who was in college. We ended up closing very late and he was suddenly intrigued by politics.

who in their right minds feeds raccoons? argh, what a bunch of stupid neighbors you have Jay
Posted by: chemjeff hates snow at February 22, 2013 08:29 PM (cnS/d)


Yep. And that was in Missouri, too, chemjeff. (Creve Coeur).

Short answer: no one in his right mind does anything of the kind. I'm sure they tried reasoning with the raccoons, and even coexisting with them, but it didn't work out.

The funny part was we found this out when we were at their house and they beamingly told us to come watch something really cute. They started feeding them, and about 30 raccoons (I'm not exaggerating) began showing up and getting more and more bold (although none asked for "free pho's," so there's that) as the guy fed them ... by hand.

He then asked if our kids (then6 and 2) would like to feed them by hand. (True story.) I looked at him as though he were crazy, which I think he was. Dude, you're not in a Disney movie, OK? These are wild fucking animals. Look up the word "wild" if necessary.

We largely had Food Peace in our house when I was young, because of an early realization that we are All Different People With Different Tastes. At least until it was time to go to Grandma's.

Like 1 out of 4 HH flavors are actually really well done and tasty.

Then they came out with "Gluten Free Hamburger Helper" which was NONE of those flavors and completely unlike anything else they made.

Why TF would I want that? I kind of hate that some people do GF as a "health kick" because that means most of my specialty food is crappy gritty nasty hippie food.

DL backwards Boy is in a lot of pain as a machinist type and I will defer to your wisdom, my love for you creators is sincere. I spent too much of my life learning destruction and never got to be more than a good spare set of hands for construction. You get inspired to do some analysis and get a price tag you let me know we can get a study going I think.

The machining tutor/old school production method on period piece mags may be useful laying the groundwork if we ever got the certs and license to produce genuine Class III kit.

After the dust settles from this next move I can probably kick in money...God willing we make it to retirement and decide on our next home I was serious about wanting to craft an interlocking diversified conglomerate.

By God we are the fucking economy and our willingness to work, and adapt is a national resource.

Anyway there *is* a market for C+R mags IMHO....

I've got a computer controlled milling machine. I could probably machine any sort of magazine I wanted with it, though most of them are just bent metal, which is much more economical to manufacture.

I've been noticing some people have been fabing AR15 magazines out of three dimensional printers. That's probably the easier way to go for small quantities.


If we're going to start from scratch, I'd recommend 3-D printing. Bending metal, which I know how to do, would have a longer lead time. A couple of printers and an oven would get us creating wealth in a couple of weeks, versus a few months using the old way.

If we really wanted to get up and running quickly, we could consider plastic printing for the obvious parts. Those are really cheap.

The Fed cannot raise interest rates. If they do, they fuck the federal government. They are the only reason we've been able to get away with running $1T+ deficits for the last 5 years. Without their massive prin-- uh, quantitative easing, interest rates would've shot through the roof, "bondzilla" telling Uncle Sam he was borrowing too much. But the Fed comes in and saves the day.
So far, we haven't inflated too much (at least by official BLS figures -- but hey, have you noticed oil and food?), but that's in the cards. If the Fed were to tighten, interest rate on Ts would skyrocket, fucking Uncle. And besides that, the Fed would start suffering capital losses on its own balance sheet (it gets complicated, and a blog comment is not the place to try to explain it, but these losses would have to be eaten by the taxpayer to keep the monetary system in balance, which is essentially more debt -- they even created a little balance sheet trick to handle this possibility, but it won't matter).
In short, if Helicopter and the boys try to tighten, they immediately fuck us, fiscally and monetarily. The only hope is to keep going and hope inflation doesn't get out of hand. But it will will. We're fucked either way, mind you.
We've crossed the event horizon, make no mistake. There is no escape. The only question is how much proper time on our little doomed world lines we have before we hit the singularity.
Fiscally and monetarily, we've gone over the Wile E. Coyote cliff. We won't fall until we (the market) look down. But we will fall.

I see you skipped over the part about the dems not giving a flying damn about how their agenda polls and just implementing it.

The dems are the party of big government and whatever their faults they will try to implement a big government agenda whenever elected.

The GOP claims to be the party of small government but when elected and given the power they don't follow through--because the professional GOP doesn't believe in small government anymore than the dems do, they just want to control Leviathan not end it.

339 'Evening, 'rons and 'ronettes!

Ahh! Here's the doom I was looking for!

From Tommy Eliot, 'East Coker'

In my beginning is my end. In succession
Houses rise and fall, crumble, are extended,
Are removed, destroyed, restored, or in their place
Is an open field, or a factory, or a by-pass.
Old stone to new building, old timber to new fires,
Old fires to ashes, and ashes to the earth
Which is already flesh, fur and faeces,
Bone of man and beast, cornstalk and leaf.
Houses live and die: there is a time for building
And a time for living and for generation
And a time for the wind to break the loosened pane
And to shake the wainscot where the field-mouse trots
And to shake the tattered arras woven with a silent motto

Yep. Real interest rates - not the kabuki shit we're looking at now from QE - would hammer the economy, which hasn't exactly been roaring during the Jugears Administration.

Real interest rates would drive us into a no shit depression, so instead we pretend. We put that $1 trillion IOU in our wallets, and whistle a happy tune.

For now.

The scanning machine is expensive but you only have to do it relatively few times and can rent access.

The old machines were cruder but more robust, it was almost all stamped steel and springs.

Springmaking can be learned and contracted out once you get specs down.

A big problem is you don't just need sizes of parts, you need fitment and to test it with the guns. That's more money. You could start with rare magazines and work your way up as you make money.

I suggest "robust" plastic designs (easier for rifles) on 3-D printers because the initial investment is smaller.

Also the DP-51 is a modified S&W clone, not a hi-power clone. It's a modified double-action and not single action like an HP. It uses Browning locking but like half of guns do.

Well, it's my Sister and BIL. He is English and she now had dual citizenship/ They love the US-he more so than she does actually -and have been to every state in the US. (I haven't). they love Maine and are building a beautiful house on the top of some mountain. It's a lovely house in a lovely part of maine.. When people love something you can't talk them out of it.

I pray for them too. She's an Agnostic and I think he has some sort of rudimentary belief in God but they always like to go to church when they;rehere at Christmas.
They're good people are upset by the fact that in some places in England you can't even be comfortable walking there if you're not in Muslim garb and particularly if you're a woman. They know that England will be completely taken over by Muslims soon. Please don;t get me wrong. I know there are some very fine Muslims, but English culture will just disappear if that's the case

Thanks for your prayers.

My plan, so far, is to accumulate as much assets and commodities as I can manage, and attempt to maintain as many viable ways of being useful in a community after an economic collapse.

I am currently trying to get my natural gas pump station on line, and after that I intend to turn to doing conversions. If money goes worthless, the local community is still going to need means of fueling their equipment and vehicles.

I've been working to be a sort of "tech" center for a long while, with an eye towards invention and manufacturing. I've got some pretty cool shit.

****

As an expert in these affairs I can tell you it is easy to make springs.
Get untempered spring steel at McMaster Carr online and cut to width and length, bend to shape. Put the spring on an 3/8" aluminum plate, raised up on bricks high enough to get a flame under and big enough to accommodate the spring by half again, heat plate from underneath with a propane torch. Keep torch moving. When the correct temp is reached you can watch as the heat runs up the spring stock by watching the color change. When the color gets to the top of the spring you're done, remove from the plate and let cool.

You can also "hire" people with 3-D printers as contractors - that's the cheapest and most portable part of the process.

There's probably even a springmaker somewhere with excess capacity.

Yep, and the Fed knows it --a couple of theireconomistshave put out a couple of CYA papers during the last couple of weeks admitting all this. Well, the say it "could" happen. Their balancesheet just went over $3T (that's pushing 20% of US GDP!) and they'reessentially admitting they can't unwind without fucking everything.
The only question isdo we die by inflationary fire, or bydeflationary ice, depending on justwhat theydo. My bet is on the former, as they won't have the guts to just default on the debt and cutspending to tax revenue (whatlittle will be coming in). They'll turn up the printing presses (bypassing the Fed by law if they have to) to keep the checks flowing. At that point, we're Weimar.
If they went the other route, they'd have tostop the checks. But it's the same in real terms. Either still get the check in worthlessdollars, or get no checks.
And that will be an Armaggedon, and no just fearmongering as they're doing with the sequester, talking about a mere 2% cut in the rate of growth. You'll see *real cuts* there in real terms, and not just a mere couple of percent. Heh, heh. It will be weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth.

3D metal fab is almost all subtractive rather than additive.

And very expensive.

There is a "brazed powdered steel" 3D printer, but none of that is structural. It's just for visual things, art.

You can buy the wire or sheet for making springs from McMaster-Carr, and form the parts cold, by bending or winding. Then you heat it up, quench in oil, and wa-lah it's all springy.

408 Exactly. The free-lance hobbyist - some folks take these things way too far, you know - might, were he so inclined, be subject to the temptation (economies of scale, you know) to make perhaps too much of a particularly popular round.

An idea of which I conceived quite some time ago is this:

If you see a run on the stores, grab all the mouthwash you can get. Cases if possible. The stuff contains mostly ethyl alcohol, and is fit for human consumption. Distill it out of the other crap, and you have drinkable alcohol. (though not of particularly good quality.)

It has the advantage of getting past the revenuers alcohol tax because it was never intended to be used in that manner. It's cheaper than actual retail liquor.

When you need to trade something, this will make decent trading material.

Hey Mero -- perhaps "pure" oatmeal with no trace of gluten is too costly but I've been vaguely avoiding wheat just as an experiment and making oatmeal waffles to satisfy my grain cravings in the mornings.

here is a batch that lasts me about a week:

grind 2 cups of oatmeal to 'flour' in a blender or coffee grinder
2 cups plain oatmeal.
3 eggs, 1/3 to 1/2 cup oil
2 tablespoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
3-4 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt.
optional 1 banana diced
milk or water to get batter consistency. --1.5 -2+ cups (I use water or just a little half and half and then water cuz I don't milk so I don't buy it)
You'll have to add more liquid each morning to get the batter pourable.

usually takes 6 minutes in my cheapy target waffle iron.

Posted by: panzernashorn at February 22, 2013 09:06 PM (MhA4j)

One question. Given that the shape of most magazine springs is somewhat rectangular, is there some maximum width of the spring that would result in a sufficient temperature differential between that section in contact with the plate and that section up in the air to result in an uneven tempering?
I would think that both sides of the spring would need to be heated to insure the same temperature is achieved uniformly.

There is a "brazed powdered steel" 3D printer, but none of that is structural. It's just for visual things, art.

Exactly, but i'm thinking that a device which builds objects by building up a weld line of brass might be practical. Electron beam welding is extremely easy to control. It would be a big machine, but it would be able to print objects out of brass.

Yes eventually you will be able to buy ammo again, the ammo manufacturers are in the interesting position of either buying more equipment and hiring more people to meet a demand that might not be sustained or not be able to meet the market demands. Right now there's a lot of panic buying, will it last? Time will tell, the ammo manufacturers will either take a chance to make a capital investment to be able to ramp up production or they will not, there's a lot of variables in doing it.

Not sure, but that may be from moisture. I've got ammo that old, no problem, but I kept it in an air conditioned house.

537 530 Ronster,

Yes!

Now some folks are perfectly comfortable with using .22WMR in Mauser actioned bolt guns but I would NOT do so for 2 reasons....

1) the dimensions of the cases ARE different

2) why? I mean really why risk it based on pressure tolerances and such...the performance gain is there but if you are in an application needing the .22WMR bite the bullet and go .22 hornet or .222/.223 IMHO....

check out the SAAMI pressure and follow your bore instructions and if a new bore is on an old action your receiver instructions IMHO....

the most common current .22WMR application is in Lever guns and the PMR-30 from kel tec....

One of the biggest misconceptions people have of these things is that the day of the collapse is the thing. So they ask "What might we have done differently that day or the day before to avoid it?"

The truth is that the ramp of the market/economy on margin is what made the collapse possible. So if you're looking for a general cause, check when it became easier to "invest" with borrowed money and see which of those changes was made most irresponsibly. For the coming crash, you might look at the Kanjorsky hearing after which "Mark to Market" accounting rules got tossed. But that was done to arrest a collapse in progress-i.e. maintain a previous false status quo, so you can argue the cause for what's coming was earlier.

Of course if you think about our monetary system, not from the "Fed is a false idol, hence evil" angle, but just a matter of how exponents work, you'd realize that a system based on loaning money into existence must either have fairly frequent bankruptcies of the primary dealers (those who get money directly from the Fed) or it must ultimately collapse into a singularity with no money in existence and the Fed claiming a right to collateral of some kind.

551 548 Toby 928th,

that's right production is just a fucking habit and price structure just a random guess...

look either everything about the engine that has fueled progress over the last 400 years is wrong or Bambi and buds are just jerking off to wreck the machine on purpose....

I know my analysis....

555 Hey guys?

Is there an Army Field Manual on how to bring down a government? Just to see if we're doing it right. There's 'counter insurgency' so how about one for 'insurgency'?

Ya, I know, first you need to control a media outlet, or underground media....
uh. ya, so there's that .

...an you need money.....or a sugar daddy.
Uh..I think I see a problem.

556 555 Skandia Recluse,

Yes....sorta....

you want to read 'em I can show 'em to you.

The concept you need to ponder is reverse engineering red Teams' best plays....

and you do not "need' a sugar daddy so much as you need will and fitness to purpose.

557 Revolvers are supposedly so reliable, In my experience they are the worst, except my 629, .44. Never a misfire. Same with XD .45, I suppose, cant say that about any other pistola.

Kinda banhammer bait if ace is in a bad mood, though I see from your comment you're referring to what the Left has already done to us.

That said, my joking response is

No, the CIA writes those.

Posted by: Methos at February 22, 2013 10:43 PM (hO9ad)

559 XD .45 is an auto. The 629 (revolver) and the XD .45 (auto) are the most reliable pistolas I have ever known.

re: the hammer.

561 560 Skandia Recluse,

I have posted in depth analysis of Fm 3-24, FM 1 and 200 on the matter of insurgency, CoIn....

I am the guy that pretty much laughed my ass off at the AWC Col who was wanking to "the Teahadist/KKK take Darlington Hooah" Lib Porn with a detailed and structured doctrinal thesis.....

point is this land is built for Insurgency....

I don't want it, and will never start it but facts are facts.

We won this nation through alternating In/CoIn work.

Posted by: sven10077 at February 22, 2013 10:57 PM (LRFds)

562 558 Methos,

well rewrote them anyway....

I'd posit that the USMC and OSS wrote 'em YMMV....

565 it warms my heart to read all the grief Hollowpoint is getting these days, he deserves every bit of it and more.
he and his ilk are a big part of why we are doomed.confronted with logic he resorts to emotion, generally anger, even though he knows that magic isn't real he still clings to it and attempts to slander or mock anyone who doesn't agree with him.he is not concerned with the fate of the nation or anyone in it but himself and his precious notions of normalcy.if he were a passenager on the Titanic he would yell "All is well! this ship is unsinkable!"

570 ette-
if you see this. Don't feel bad, I'm not in the loop enough either. When they start referring to old conversations and their site-specific jargon, and especially during discussions on all the different types of weapons- I wish I had a manual at times to intepret at times. I'm used to putting meanings together from the context, but the conversation are flying by with too many unfamiliar references, and I feel silly asking too.

571 I love Attenborough's documentaries, you guys. Tortoises are interesting, but sea turtles are marvelous and fun beyond belief to swim around. All that clumsiness on land turns into grace in the water, and quite a bit of playfulness. (Yes, the little ones like to play.) Be careful, or I'll starting telling my turtle tales.

@72 "Don't leave out cultural death as well. I am being criticized by a student for teaching Dante's Inferno and the fact that he placed sodomites in the eighth ring of Hell. I am trying to expose my students to a masterpiece of Western Literature and I am made to feel like a bigot. God help us." -- I've been encountering the same nonsense as well. Last fall, a student told me I was "not allowed" to explain the role of the Catholic Church in Europe during the early modern period. She informed me that the role of religion could not be discussed in an educational setting-"it was against the law", and she was going to register a complaint. (Obviously she had not bothered to read her textbook.) Least anyone else think I should have laughed her idiocy off, teachers are sued over this craziness. Eventually we won't be able to teach Western History for fear of offending someone.
