27 THE South African government has begun the process of seizing land from white farmers.
Local newspaper City Press reports two game farms in the northern province of Limpopo are the first to be targeted for unilateral seizure after negotiations with the owners to purchase the properties stalled.

While the government says it intends to pay, owners Akkerland Boerdery wanted 200 million rand ($18.7 million) for the land - they're being offered just 20 million rand ($1.87 million).

'Notice is hereby given that a terrain inspection will be held on the farms on April 5, 2018 at 10am in order to conduct an audit of the assets and a handover of the farm's keys to the state,' a letter sent to the owners earlier this year said.

It's almost an indoor/outdoor space. There's a balcony over the canals, but the furnishings and wall hanging belong indoors. Is that big curtain the only protection from the elements?

It looks like it's just after breakfast, but only one plate was set, and one glass of wine has been poured. She's quite enraptured. Did she feed him for the show? Is he singing for his supper?

Is his name Paolo?

Oh! He's looking at music. He probably knows his own, but he's trying to play her favorite songs.

Much of the south african press is in the pocket of the ANC. This says "targeted".

Hollowwwod has a long long tradition of hiding in plain sight, the bold sexual innuendo. At first it was something of a game, after the Hays commission stopped allowing open sex to be shown/discussed.

Then the commies came along, and hid their sooper sekret commie propaganda in their movies.

Then it was teh gheys.

So yeah, if you look closely enough, the pedo stuff is there. Yeah, I remember this movie quite well, I just took it for granted it was gay. Underaged boys being recruited into the gay lifestyle.

Posted by: bluebell at August 20, 2018 10:04 AM (JJZzu)

I know nothing of this artist, but it looks like Dutch Baroque, possibly around Vermeer's era, but definitely not influenced by him.

There are very few symbols here, that I can see. The dog is probably the most prominent. He usually means loyalty and fidelity (Fido), and when present which a couple, the fidelity of each to his/her mate. It can also be used ironically, in that the couple should be loyal to each other but aren't. I see no evidence here, however, that the artist intended the dog to mean anything negative or critical.

I am very interested in the painting on the wall. It looks like a depiction of Jesus raising Lazarus. Paintings in the background can offer the viewer a sense of what mood or message the artist was going for.

Other images, such as the fruit and clothing, give a look at what economic class we're looking at -- in case the quality of the dwelling didn't give it away.

I think it is possible... possible, the artist is implying her innocence, to a certain extent. I mean, she's let him into her home, and she's fed him. And is listening to him, and as he leans in (their elbows are touching, for pete's sake), she leans in his direction.

She's possibly not quite aware that she is being seduced, but before the day is through, she will be right and goodly bedded.

Nah.

Something will happen that happened when Rhodesia became Zimbabwe.

The farmers, landowners, etc who were white got the hell out cuz the alternative was to have your farm overrun and you and your family murdered.

When I was bartending in LA, I met a guy who owned a safari business on his land in Rhodesia.

He was a regular and had a lot of interesting stories, but-

he also had no doubts about what would happen if he stayed cuz he saw what happened to those who tried to fight legally or otherwise.

He got out with his dogs and opened a guard dog business based around his Rhodesian Ridgebacks.

He did quite well. The wealthy and well-known always want their property protected.

Anywho, all it will take is a few farmer's families getting the Winnie Mandela Necklace Treatment from a howling mob and they'll abandon ship.

After looking at it some more, there looks like a subtle message about salvation here. I mentioned the painting of Jesus and Lazarus. There is a grape vine outside the window and grapes on the table. There is also a goblet of wine and a loaf of bread. If that painting wasn't there, I'd say they were innocent symbols of plenty, but combined with the image of resurrection and salvation, they take on a greater meaning.

If this is of the Holland School, then the religious imagery would be relegated to symbolic and have to be inferred.

188 Been a few weeks but several of you helped me in my quest to reduce our cable/satellite bill. We are now pretty much streaming with Roku and Directv Now and using a local antenna to access PBS.
The only problem I encountered was in trying to rid us of Directv. Since we were bundled using Directv for programming and ATT for internet I couldn't completely kill Directv or I would lose my unlimited internet. I should have known there was a reason that ATT doesn't bundle Directv Now with their other services.
I have Roku devices on all of our tv's in our main home and one on our tv at the cottage. I worked out a deal with ATT to keep Directv at the cottage for $10/month with their Family package. The benefit is that we can get local channels through it and the balance through Directv Now and Roku. Tried to use the antenna for local channels at the cottage as well but had to hold it in my hand while standing outside. I love my husband but not that much so that he could check the local weather.
It was an experience and thanks to all of you for your help. Wish we could kill it completely but my hubby couldn't easily get to Alaskan Bush People.

206 After looking at it some more, there looks like a subtle message about salvation here. I mentioned the painting of Jesus and Lazarus. There is a grape vine outside the window and grapes on the table. There is also a goblet of wine and a loaf of bread. If that painting wasn't there, I'd say they were innocent symbols of plenty, but combined with the image of resurrection and salvation, they take on a greater meaning.

If this is of the Holland School, then the religious imagery would be relegated to symbolic and have to be inferred.
Posted by: Kris at August 20, 2018 10:31 AM (OyyDO)


You seem to have decided that IS Jesus and Lazarus.

Look closely... no halo. And the extended right arm... there is a sword. Might even be penetrating the man's heart. He's not laying there like a man who was buried, he's been stabbed. And I do think it's possible there is another dead body laying behind our sworded hero.

So no... not salvation. Condemnation.

219 Does the cat under the table symbolize anything?
Posted by: bluebell at August 20, 2018 10:24 AM (JJZzu)

I'm less versed on cat symbolism, but whenever I've seen them in art, they have a negative connotation, especially if it's near a woman. Probably because of their association with witches. I remember a lecture where the prof said the cat could mean a woman of loose morals or bad/evil character. I think that because Sorgh put it directly under the woman it means something referring to her. That it is asleep and under a table could mean that that symbolism is negated.

The dog is the exact opposite. It is awake and alert. The two animals face each other, in similar poses. They could be mirroring each other. Notice also the dog is the same color as the cat, and a similar size, even though it looks like a Spaniel.

One of my old customers in South Africa was originally from Rhodesia. His family was forced to leave.

Eventually, he started a business with a partner in Joburg. His partner married an Australian and one day about 5 years ago she told him that he was welcome to do as he pleased but she was taking the kids and moving back to Australia. They left together.

My friend is now considering following him, his second forced move but this time out of Africa.

I get lost in the image studying the details in the clothing, props, and the materials in the room and outside buildings.

BTW, Sorgh did a scene of ships in a rough sea that is remarkable. It is on the Wiki page for him.

272 You seem to have decided that IS Jesus and Lazarus.

Look closely... no halo. And the extended right arm... there is a sword. Might even be penetrating the man's heart. He's not laying there like a man who was buried, he's been stabbed. And I do think it's possible there is another dead body laying behind our sworded hero.

So no... not salvation. Condemnation.
Posted by: BurtTC at August 20, 2018 10:38 AM (cY3LT)

Hmm. Interesting. But I see a full-body glow surrounding the standing man. Only Jesus would be depicted this way. The other man on the ground is reaching up towards the other man. Behind the man on the ground is a cave. I first thought it was Jesus healing a sick man, until I saw the cave. It is really hard to tell what's going on, so whatever you see is just as correct as what I see.

In the end, the painting is a lovely depiction of Dutch leisure.

The Morning Report 8/20/18

steel.jpg

Good morning kids. Another Monday and we're loaded up with link-fu so let's commence. First up, the absolutely justified revocation of John Brennan's security clearance is turning into yet another political victory for the President, as is evidenced by both the jerk's own walking back of his anti-Trump rhetoric probably at the urging of his fellow Deep Staters, such as James Clapper who is openly telling him to cool it on the State-run house organs. That didn't stop Michael Hayden from jumping on the self-righteous self-serving fake hero bandwagon to taunt the President into revoking his clearance. Which leads to two somewhat cromulent points; a) unless administrations are transitioning at a time of war or other national security situation, why does any former government official in those capacities get to retain security clearance after they leave the service? As is now clearly and painfully evident, those within the Deep State who are hell bent on seeing its preservation and the destruction of this President and all who support him will use their power and position and subvert the tools they are entrusted with in defense of the realm for political purposes and the accretion of power. That's a rather alarming, yet obvious, conclusion given the external threats posed by the rise of global Islamic totalitarian expansionism, petty tyrants flexing their muscles and for me the number one threat to America for the foreseeable future, the People's Republic of China (see a couple of links below).

That said, the President completely debunks the myth that revoking high level security clearances is a political move to silence free speech and dissent; in fact it does just the opposite since having that clearance in a sane and logical world means you are supposed to keep your yap shut. Not having one gives you the freedom to shoot your mouth off (without revealing state secrets) whenever and however you like. Anyway, Brennan has succeeded in scoring an own goal and looking like even more of an ass to an ever-widening group of people.

In Mewler-Gate news, the big story is that the White House counsel was allowed to be interviewed by Mueller and company. By all accounts nothing was revealed and, despite desperate hoping against hope by the Left, did not implicate the President in anything. That said, why allow him to be exposed to a process crime sting? Meh. They're desperate; they're praying for a Manafort conviction and of course if by chance he is acquitted you bet your ass the judge will be smeared as being in Putin's pocket. Anyway, we're 10 or so weeks from the Midterms when all of this will come to a head, one way or another.

Speaking of politics, after getting the rhetorical tar beaten out of him, Andrew Cuomo is back for more, spewing a litany of charges against Republicans and conservatives that he and the Democrat-Left have been wholly guilty of since the founding of the nation. And still are. Plus, we have several links that anecdotally debunk the notion of a blue wave coming in November. Meanwhile, the essentially Marxist Democrat Farm Labor Party in Minnesota is standing by he-man woman-hater Keith Ellison, despite the charges that he physically and emotionally abused his ex-girlfriend. I guess if you rub the pussy-hat it turns into a burqa with no eye slits, ja? And bipedal turd Alcee Hastings burped up that it would be catastrophic if Trump were drowning... and someone saved him. Where else but America can a judge who was impeached for taking bribes come back and become a 25-year congressman? Maybe Cuomo's got something; how can America be that great if cheap-suited, race-baiting dimwit goniffs like Hastings can serve in Congress? Meanwhile, the Feds have posted a reward for info leading to the capture of some punk who threatened the President. Meh, Hastings, Durbin, Waters, Booker et al are unindicted co-conspirators in my estimation.

Big news on the amnesty front; the hack-in-black has reversed himself and ruled that the Feds do not have to expand the illegal DACA program, the Media is now oddly silent since learning that the illegal alien apprehended and set to be repatriated away from his poor preggo wife is in fact wanted for murder. And of course, contra Cuomo, if we suck so badly why are foreigners flocking here by the millions? I can see the Arnold Horshack reaction through my USB.

Let's go to the economy where in something truly remarkable which will never be seen in the propaganda organs, US Steel has announced a $750 million investment in plant expansion at the Gary, IN facility and is crediting PDT's tariffs, 401(k)s are becoming great again, Chelsea Hubbel's aborting our way to prosperity is a sick joke, Fauxcahontas' plan to communize the American economy would be a disaster and a good essay on the myth of the Swedish socialist miracle, the one your libbo friends always crow about whilst avoiding Cuba, North Korea, Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Nicaragua...

Quite a good assortment of links on fake news fakery and censorship, as well as good news on the gun front, where Louisiana is going after corporations restricting gun rights, Washington state's latest gun-grab initiative is tossed from the ballot and concealed carry permits are skyrocketing.

I mentioned the threat from the Chi-Coms and while they are arming up everywhere they still have problems developing indigenous technology that can compete with ours, as evidenced by the jet engine link. Then again, whatever they can't steal with spies here (Feinstein) they are given on a silver platter by crooked stooges (the Clintons and Loral Space). Meanwhile, they are in our schools bigly and also in bed with Google et al. Thank G-d Trump is president is all I can say.

From hither and yon, the Catholic church sex abuse scandal needs to be addressed and the Bishop of Madison Wisconsin of all places puts the blame on the culture of homosexuality. I expect his home to be firebombed at any moment for that one. Michelle Wolf's sick abortion show gets canned by Netflix, Al Sharpton beclowns himself yet again, Mike Lindell stands by the President, the Left owns the Brit grooming gang and Tommy Robinson atrocities and, considering the Chi-Com school infiltration, a sobering piece on why a population of ignoramuses is the perfect opportunity for Leftism.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

Even what with living here for a decade and a half (a quarter century ago), this morning from our BnB window, I saw something I don't recall ever seeing before: sunrise behind the Chicago skyline. Kinda pretty.

A) He should lose it because he used his position at the CIA to concoct evidence in order to illegally spy on candidate Trump to derail his campaign and then failing that to attempt for all intents and purposes a coup to overthrow his presidency.

B) a man who once voted for Gus Hall and Angela Davis should never have been the director of the CIA to begin with.

I think the clip originated from CNN and he was outraged that anyone would claim that these clearances are used for personal gain. Which brings up the question that if they are of no particular value, then why be upset when they are revoked?

Mergia Negussie Habteyes, 58, stands charged with lying to U.S. immigration authorities to enter as a refugee. Eventually, he gained permanent residency and then became a citizen, according to the indictment.




Doesn't matter if he is a citizen or not. By federal immigration law that is grounds for stripping his citizenship and deporting him back to his country of origin. But oh how the Democrats sand SJW would scream.

86 On the security clearance issue...

My company routinely hires former government-types who have clearance, to work contracts where we must have cleared personnel to have access to classified info as part of work the government wants us to do. So there we have the two major tenets of this kind of thing - cleared people with an actual need to know.

From that perspective, having a former senior level employee who retains a clearance doesn't bug me all that much...again, within those parameters.

The kicker is, and I think everyone here pretty well gets this, is a clearance as a kind of badge of (former) office. If a former employee is NOT actively working on a bona fide contract and is instead treated as some kind of Manager Emeritus, then the bar to retain any kind of clearance must be, I think, very very high. Simply having a clearance in the off chance that the POTUS might call on one's services as an advisor, maybe, doesn't meet that bar.

What has been sold as an intolerable abuse of executive power in this instance is, actually, anything but. People get and lose clearances ALL THE TIME, and people get clearances reinstated when the need to know is there ALL THE TIME. This is nothing unusual, or at least is shouldn't be.

91 This is a re-post (from last nights ONT) of what I had to say about what I have discovered in all of work I have been doing.

I will continue to
file FBI complaints. Those complaints will continue to be ignored by
the U.S. Attorneys who work for the Department of Justice. Are my
complaints ill-founded? No, they are right on the mark. Then why are
they being ignored? I have filed a complaint with the DOJ Inspector General about that.
My complaint will also be ignored.


Here are the facts. The Supreme Court in the case of U.S. Vs Price ruled about the law I often quote (18 USC 241):

"The language of section 241 is plain and unlimited... its language

embraces all of the rights and privileges secured to citizens by all of

the Constitution and all of the laws of the United States."(emphasis by the Supreme Court)

However,
the DOJ - in the more than 140 years that the law in its various forms
has existed, has only used it to protect abstract 14th amendment due
process rights, and never used it to protect 1st and 2nd amendment rights (or any other constitutional rights for that matter).


It and 18 USC 242 are the only
laws protecting our constitutional rights. Laws are necessary to
protect the constitution because no criminal can be charged with a
constitutional violation, only with a violation of the law. Neither 241
nor 242 has ever been used to protect 1st or 2nd amendment rights.


What
that means from a legal standpoint is that the Government does not
protect our rights from violation by criminals. Any Blue state can pass a
law outlawing Conservative Speech without fear that they would be
charged with a crime. (It would be a direct felony violation of 241 to
even agree to do that - let alone actually do it, and it would be a
violation of 242 to try to enforce such a law) The only recourse against
such a law is to file a lawsuit to try to get the anti conservative
speech law declared "Unconstitutional". In other words there is only a
civil action to be taken against people committing actual crimes.


Imagine for a
second that the only thing you could do about murder would be a civil
suit against the killer. I think you can agree that would be weak sauce
indeed. The people who seek to kill our Constitutional rights are
equally undeterred by civil action. That is why bigots push gun control laws; even
though they are committing federal felonies when they do so - they know they
won't be prosecuted for those crimes.


The real threat to the country is
not the bureaucrats, it is the U.S. Attorneys who are violating their
oaths of office to:


1. Preserve and Protect the Constitution

2 .
faithfully execute the laws of the United States.


These are the true
enablers of the deep state swamp - without them the swamp quickly
vanishes. The U.S. Attorneys are why Lois Lerner walks around freely and
had no fear that her violations of law would earn her prison time.

When the burning times come remember who the real enemies of the Constitution are, and act accordingly.

As vile as it is, its a much needed antiseptic and has flushed out all the higher ups who knew about the abuses and proclivities of the clergy they protected and often promoted.

My own parish priest went on a rant this Sunday and said if he spoke his true unvarnished thoughts on the issue; he would probably be run out of the church for 'offending' some of us in the pews and his higher ups would probably fire him.

He left it with the church allowing gay priests is like the fire department hiring a pyromaniac. and received a round of applause at the end of his homily

This canard that but for NYC the GOP would do better in NYS is nonsense.


NYC has some of the lowest voter turnout of any state.


Cuomo got a whopping 20pct of the eligible vote in nyc only to be outdone by Warren Wilhelmina's 14pct.


The reason the GOP doesn't do better is that the NYGOP is equal measures incompetent and corrupt and NYGOP voters are extraordinarily lazy, mostly because the NYGOP gives its voters nothing to be excited and motivated about.

112 Not only do Brennan/Comey and the other DeepStaters abuse clearance privilege by leaking (for globalist ideology and profit), but they of course SELECTIVELY leak, with intent to spread propaganda. (or they just lie, but use the authority of their former position to bolster the lie)

Trump complained the the MSM removed the word "fake" in quoting him on saying FAKE news is an enemy of America. At this point there is not a lot of other news, but the misquote changes the context. They are experts at the "art" of deception ... ("omit a word", one of the steps Satan used in his dialogue to deceive Eve, ending with "thou shalt NOT surely die", a direct contradiction)

Selective leaks of intel, and the unmaskings, are harder to refute, because it is not open source info ... just "sources say, trust me".

The last GOP politician I liked, and he had a lot of flaws, was Al D'Amato. That says a lot. The New York was never really conservative. Remember that it was Nelson Rockefeller who, along with Bill Scranton, really helped to sabotage the Goldwater campaign in '64, JFK assassination notwithstanding. Same lineage as the Bushies.

136 I believe in the New Testament, it says if a man
within the church has committed an offense, go to him privately and
admonish him. If he continues the behavior, take someone else from the church with you and
confront him again. If he continues after that, put him out of the
church. Seems rather straightforward to me, but I am not RC, so maybe
there are different rules.

Posted by: grammie winger at August 20, 2018 08:41 AM (lwiT4)

137 One thing very few people know is that the administrative power of bishops, including that of policing the clergy, is NOT demanded by Catholic doctrine. There have been times and places where they didn't have that influence. The most well-known is the Celtic Church, in which those powers were more generally held by abbots and abbesses. And, though geographically isolated from the rest of the Church, they were not separate, the way Copts and Nestorians were.

There is really no reason steps could not be taken in that direction; trimming them of a lot of their power in the day to day running of the Church, functions that are neither sacramental nor magisterial.

Look, this bears repeating...If there was any dirt on Trump it would have been found by now. The IRS has literally been up his a$$ for decades and found nothing shady.


The msm, democrats and the gop(e) have spent two years trying to find anything they can on Trump with zero success, because there isn't anything to find. They can't understand that because everyone of them is dirty and they know in their hearts that Trump must be dirty also. They resorted to making $hit up (the dossier) because they literally couldn't find anything.

Problems include them acting like any other institution/bureaucracy (ignore or blame the victim, shuffle the offenders, followed by in some cases actual attempts at 'rehabilitation that never work). Any government agency or justice system works in much the same way.

The fact that it's a private organization, for whom the left holds no love, despite its love for them, doesn't help. One of the few things our last bishop said tat made sense, was to respond to a call for eliminating the statute of limitations. He said that he would agree to it, if the state of Delaware agreed to allow itself to be sued in all cases, which is currently restricted. Surprise! They didn't take him up on it.

Finally, the vast majority of cases involves men preying upon teenage boys, not pre-pubescent children. Naturally, the local rag mentions one story, that of a priest who attacked a girl.

It would be interesting to compare and contrast this horrid mess, Rotherham England, and the increasing violence against women in Europe, especially the thousand attacks in one New Years' night in Germany.

It got to the point where there was a hashtag and a huge number of users figured out a way to defend against it...the Twitter Gulag Defense Network. It had to do with a ratio of number of followers to number followed (so the Network would share user names and we'd all follow each other), how to format Tweets directed at other Twitter users (put a period in front of the @ sign, etc), and other techniques to show the Twitter system that you aren't some trollbot.

It worked like crazy for some time, until I think Twitter decided to manually ban people they didn't like instead of trying to automate it.

There's two reasons - first, a lot of people like me aren't on Twitter at all, won't have anything to do with it, so we're not in any position to make complaints.

Second and more importantly, you know that Twitter and Youtube and FB all have built in overrides to let them automatically and easily neutralize any trouble that the algorithms give to their political "friends". We can't use the so-called "rules" against them because all of their rules are already "heads we win, tails you lose".

They're saying it's automatic, they can't help it as a cover story. Of course they could stop it all instantly, which is what they already do for all of their friends.

Confessing criminal acts does NOT confer absolution or equate to a vow of silence. If I commit a crime and confess it, not only can a priest report what I divulge, they have an OBLIGATION to do so. has this been abused? I'm certain that it has.

Sharia law wants their own set of laws, in this sense the RCC seems to demand the same, and gets it.

And the RCC may not be unique in actual percentage of such sexual abuse cases, but the coverups draw more attention.

231 One thing that ticks me off about the "scandal" over Brennan's clearance (and an awful lot of other news) is the talk about Trump's reasons for doing it. This is an appalling trend, the belief that we can make windows into mens' souls. Everyone out there from David French* to Don Lemon loves to do this.

And no one can. Hell, even looking at our own actions, it's often unclear EXACTLY what our motives are; they are usually a mixture. With others, well, all you come up with is what you wanted to come up with.

I'll grant that sometimes this is a relevant concern, why someone took a particular action. But what is happening now is that precisely where we should raise the bar for evidence, we are lowering it. And that means trouble.

*Admittedly, French is the absolute paradigm of the Pharisee. It is obvious his main problem is that Donald Trump is morally unworthy to be French's president.

Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen. They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others.......
.....Censorship is a very dangerous thing & absolutely impossible to police. If you are weeding out Fake News, there is nothing so Fake as CNN & MSNBC, & yet I do not ask that their sick behavior be removed. I get used to it and watch with a grain of salt, or don't watch at all..
....Too many voices are being destroyed, some good & some bad, and that cannot be allowed to happen. Who is making the choices, because I can already tell you that too many mistakes are being made. Let everybody participate, good & bad, and we will all just have to figure it out!


Explain to liberals that you would not allow an angel with an IQ of 1000 the power to censor what you hear. Because it is the responsibility of everyone to decide on their own whether a message is good or even true. Without exercising these judgement we become mentally weak and feckless.

Sorry, you're wrong.

In the Roman Catholic Church, the Seal of Confession (or Seal of the Confessional) is the absolute duty of priests not to disclose anything that they learn from penitents during the course of the Sacrament of Penance (confession). Even where the seal of confession does not strictly apply – where there is no specific serious sin confessed for the purpose of receiving absolution – priests have a serious obligation not to cause scandal by the way they speak.

Notice also how (generally) the Left and the Right approach scandals in the church and in government differently. The Right, generally, emphasizes the need to weed out the miscreants and RETURN to the founding principles of the organization, which remain valid even if numerous people have failed to live up to them.

Whereas the Left, generally (there are exceptions), cites scandals as proof that the founding principles are invalid (the Founding Fathers owned slaves = the Constitution and Declaration are invalid; priests molested kids and bishops hid it = everything the Church teaches is BS; some cops are crooked = abolish police completely) and that the only solution is to burn it all to the ground and replace it with something completely different.

The error here, one that is common to people reading this passage, is that it is far too easy to confuse theological and doctrinal complaints with actual legal complaints. We do not live in the early middle ages where there is one legal system for clerics, and another separate system for the peasantry and the laity. What you have quotes is applicable when someone has made an error of doctrine inside the church, or caused dissension, or behaved uncharitably - a long list of things that are not subjects of our secular legal system.

But no church has authority over those matters which ARE actual crimes under our legal system, and as believes who are loyal subjects (as Paul directed Christians to be, elsewhere in his writing) those believes have both a legal and a moral duty to submit any evidence of actual crimes to the appropriate secular legal authorities. And if they do not, they can and should be held both financially and criminally liable by those secular authorities for withholding any evidence of such crimes which they may have possessed.

276 There are two sides the whole clerical abuse scandal.

1. What is going on is far from unique or peculiar to the Catholic Church. The situation regarding child abuse is as bad in many other churches, and worse in the schools. That the cover-up is the sort of thing we see all around, everyday, in all spheres of life, is too obvious to need defending. The faults in the Church, coming as they do from the people in it, naturally reflect the ambient society.

2. It's still the Church's job to do better. While it will never be perfectly done, it IS her job to stand against the world, and especially the world of actually surrounding it. Much of the problem stems from the modernizers' "engage with the world" and "accept the world as a going concern" celebrations of their milieu.

Less inclusiveness and more anathema is what's needed. But that would be mean and judgmental.

I don't think the abuse scandal is quite as bad as in other churches ( although they certainly have abusers too) simply because with many masses and acolytes and more priests than clergy of other denominations there has been more of an opportunity to be alone with young people. Also, in my years of conducting Confirmation classes I have either had a parent or other teacher with me at all times, But yes, it needs to cleaned up and somebody needs to bring up the reality of homosexual rape. Schools and churches tend to pass around the abusers which is a sin and a scandal.

You obviously and understandably have strong feelings about it and I would be angry too if nothing was said. I'm sure you are not alone in feeling this way. That's why I suggest people get in touch with other parishioners, write letters and demand an open meeting.

One of the worst times in my pastoral life was when our denominational supervisor called a meeting of all the clergy and talked about some clergyman who had a para church ministry and he had been having a sexual relationship with a teen. The denominational head passed around sexually explicit e-mails that the minister had written to the girl. It was awful! The church also sent out e-mails urging them to give no support to this para church ministry. They told the guy if you do not resign we will have a trial and revoke your clergy orders. The girl decided not to press charges. I think by that time she was 18.

I think that's why it's better for the congregants to take some actions as a help in dealing with the betrayal!

The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Sarcasm: the last refuge of modest and chaste-souled people when the privacy of their soul is coarsely and intrusively invaded. Fyodor Dostoevsky


Quote II

You want to have two guys making out in front of your 4-year-old? It's OK with them. A guy smoking a joint, blowing the smoke into your little kid's face? OK with them. And I'm not exaggerating here. This is exactly what the secular movement stands for. Bill O'Reilly


Quote III

Intellectually I know that America is no better than any other country; emotionally I know she is better than every other country. Sinclair Lewis


Quote IV

“Before the camps, I regarded the existence of nationality as something that shouldn’t be noticed—nationality did not really exist, only humanity. But in the camps one learns: if you belong to a successful nation you are protected and you survive. If you are part of universal humanity—too bad for you.” Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Not only can Al Sharpton teach you how to be a pond scum sucking anti-Semite and tax dodge, he can teach you how to spell.

Sharpton concluded his comments with a reference to Franklin's 1967 hit "Respect," in which the singer spelled the word out. Sharpton and Franklin, who died last week at the age of 76, were close friends.

"So in the words of my late friend Aretha Franklin, show some R-E-S-P-I-C-T, and the next time you get a black woman and a beagle confused, remember this: I got you," Sharpton said

***


An incomplete story, no word if Judge Smails, Al Czervik, or alcohol was involved.

The U.S. Coast Guard is investigating a collision between a commercial powerboat and a sailboat in the Chesapeake Bay on Friday.

The two boats were off the shore of Thomas Point Park when the commercial boat, part of a charter service, and a J/105 sailboat belonging to the Chesapeake Boating Club in Eastport, collided. The powerboat slid over the sailboat, then came to rest with the cabin mounted across the middle of the deck, leaving a sizable dent.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. Thomas Jefferson. Or the Battle of Athens-August 1, 1946.
h/t Bitter Clinger

Bill White, who had fought in the Pacific while still in his teens and come home an ex-sergeant, had gotten angrier as the day wore on. At two in the afternoon he had harangued the group of veterans in the Essankay, saying: “You call yourselves GIs—you go over there and fight for three and four years—you come back and you let a bunch of draft dodgers who stayed here where it was safe, and you were making it safe for them, push you around. … If you people don’t stop this, and now is the time and place, you people wouldn’t make a pimple on a fighting GI’s ass. Get guns…”

In the early evening White went to get the guns himself. He sent two GIs to get a truck and, with a few other veterans, perhaps a dozen, he headed for the National Guard armory. There, he said in a 1969 interview, he “broke down the armory doors and took all the rifles, two Thompson sub-machine guns, and all the ammunition we could carry, loaded it up in the two-ton truck and went back to GI headquarters and passed out seventy high-powered rifles and two bandoleers of ammunition with each one.” By 9:00 P.M. Paul Cantrell, Pat Mansfield, State Rep. George Woods, who was also a member of the election commission, and about fifty deputies were locked inside the jail and going through the ballot boxes. The presence of Mansfield and Woods meant that a majority of the election commission was on hand, so the tallies could be certified and validated on the spot. More deputies were still barricaded in the courthouse, but along the streets none were to be seen. If the Cantrell forces had been a bit more wary, they might have spotted some shadows slipping up the embankment directly across the street from the jail.

It's a long read. But, a very good one. Go ahead, read it for yourself, we'll be here.

Haven't had enough government BS tonight? Then maybe Southport is the town for you.

A homeowner has been told she could be breaking the law by parking on her own driveway in Merseyside.

Helen Maloney, of Emmanuel Road, Southport, said she received a letter from Sefton Council as she does not have a dropped kerb and has to drive over the pavement.

About 20 Sefton residents had been sent similar letters, the council said.

The homeowners had been asked to take the "necessary corrective action", a spokesman for Sefton Council said

You kick a dog long enough, the dog will bite back. NARL being cute. Someday, sometime, somewhere will be sorry that they have made a mockery of this debate.

The National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) has always promoted abortion as a fundamental right of women – sacrosanct and inviolable. But how much do these people really respect the women they purport to represent?

The Oregon chapter of NARAL has partnered with a local ice cream shop to market new flavor: Rocky Roe v. Wade.

Louisiana commission blocks two banks from $600 million road plan because of gun sales policies
There are 2 comments on the The Advocate story from Thursday Aug 16, titled Louisiana commission blocks two banks from $600 million road plan because of gun sales policies. In it, The Advocate reports that:

State Treasurer John Schroder and Senate President John Alario, R-Westwego, squared off Thursday, Aug. 16, 2018, at a State Bond Commission meeting over excluding two banks from work on loans to fund highway projects. Schroder, right, and Alario are shown in this file photograph from December 2017 Bond Commission meeting.

Waiting to hear from the usual suspects (Kristol, French, Will, et al) that this is criminal and how it shouldn't stand. They too can F-off.

Duane 'Rhedd' Youd was killed Monday after he intentionally flew a plane into his home in Payson, Utah, where his wife Sandy and son were sleeping

Both escaped unharmed as flames engulfed the two-story home in Payson, Utah
Sandy has said she will 'never understand' what was going through his head

She described him as a 'fantastic guy' in an interview days after the deadly crash
Police say Rhedd was arrested for assaulting his wife the night before the crash
After making bail, he went to local airport and flew plane directly into the home

12 Reposting this, because I think it's important. I threw a few in sheckels.

For those of you who occasionally break free of this smart military blog, you may have heard of Smallest Minority blog at http://smallestminority.blogspot.com . Kevin routinely posts discourse with gun grabbers, and he does great work. 

He's run into some health trouble, and his family has set up a gofundme page. The goal is a very modest $5k, but I think he's going to need more than that. I am posting this here in the hopes the Horde can do for him what it did for the Scout Sniper raffle and blow the doors off the goal.

26 OK, as a friend puts it, I'm going to bed smarter tonight.


When the B-29 "Bockscar" landed at Okinawa on Aug. 9 1945, after dropping Fat Man on Nagasaki, it had 7 gallons of fuel left. Seven gallons. Less than a minute's operation of the engines (though the plane had lost two of its engines in the final minutes before landing).


I knew the whole mission was cursed/messed up, but didn't realize it was that close to disaster. And of course Okinawa was the "bingo" field, the emergency one, much closer than "home", which was Tinian.

Here's a brief Guardian look at him:

Sinclair Lewis's It Can't Happen Here features an antihero who whips up support among angry voters on the back of firebrand rhetoric, fearmongering populism and anti-Mexican sentiment.

56 A follow up on last nights credit card drama -

I pulled all info together - balances, percentage rates, minimums, etc and came up with "the plan". Wait till the afternoon and approach hubby with what we have to do and how we will do it. He's on board. Yeah!

Then I find out there is another $18k I did not see at first glance. I went ballistic. Homicide may have been mentioned. I apologized after I cooled down and he said there was no need for me to, he was wrong, foolish and he knows it. He handed over all financial dealings to me along with all his income (except for small "allowance"). I have all his credit/debit cards, I have his bank user id and password and all mail goes through me first. I gave him one of my credit cards that I never use to keep on him in case of a true emergency. He knows he must pay cash for everything. I'll shut that card right down the first time he uses it for gas or cigars or booze or Amazon.

I made a spreadsheet and I taped it to the fridge so he can see several times a day how he blew $92k and how much is owed each month and how much interest a month it is costing. The "Sheet of Shame". But it will be updated monthly so he can see the progress.

Probably will take 5 years, optimistically, to dig out of this mess. I know I can do it and at least he is done digging. Thank you all for your advice/suggestions/sympathy last night. I truly might have left home, killed myself, went nuts if I hadn't been able to talk to my friends in the grey boxes. It's not the kind of thing you want to tell your kids or your meatspace friends. I don't want them to think know he's a dumbass.

Thanks, dartist. But what's involved in curing? Easy to do at home/any special gear?

Just a ziplock bag and room in the fridge for 10 days. I put the bag in a bowl just in case. Pull it out after 10, rinse, pat dry and smoke or cook 200-225 degrees until 140 internal. Lasts forever frozen.

Posted by: rhomboid at August 19, 2018 10:08 PM (QDnY+)


I've only cured corned beef, but assuming it's the same for bacon, just salting it. You might need Prague powder #2 a.k.a. curing salt a.k.a. pink salt which is salt with some sodium nitrate and sodium nitrite but that's easy to find. It keeps the red color; curing with ordinary salt turns it gray.

Then you just brine or rub it and stick it in the refrigerator. But wait for dartist's recipe first for the ratios. If you want to go balls out and just start your own home charcuterie then get the Codex Ruhlmanomicon: Ruhlman's Charcuterie.

87 Very nice ONT, Misanthropic Humanitarian

I like the western picture. It looks like in the San Juans mountains of Colorado, but it could be in the Collegiate Range as well. It is not the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range.

Have a great night. I'll dream about knife-edge ridge-lines and crumbly San Juan rock at the angle of repose slanting to a 1,000 foot drop, and the only path is across.

For everyone else, may you dream of unexpected tax refunds, an old friend reentering your life after she retired as a trust fund manager, or your spouse deciding shopping is boring, and learns to cook healthy meals. In bluebell's case, since she is already a Cordon Bleu cook, maybe she can dream of splitting the handle of a spork in the 10 ring with a shiv.

91 Hot Air descends yet farther into Weekly Standard territory.

Taylor Millard explained that when the news media organizations demanded the names of the Manafort jurors during jury deliberations, that was just standard operating procedure - these saintly news organizations obviously had no intention of trying to intimidate the jurors while they deliberated. Why, they just wanted the juror names in advance of the verdict so they could line up exclusive interviews!

Since this is such a standard media procedure, I assumed that he would give examples of other high-profile trials where news media organizations demanded the names of jurors during jury deliberations. He didn't do so, almost certainly because the examples don't exist.

Fortunately, he is getting reamed in the comments.

The pastrami recipe I used was the amazingribs one, which I think was featured recently in a food thread. It's a recursive recipe because you have to do their corned beef first, then come back and do the pastrami. After smoking I chilled it in a cooler in the garage overnight to set it and then steamed it on a steamer tray in a pressure cooker (no pressure, just a steam vessel for reheating).

Also the corned beef recipe uses Prague #1, not sure what I was on about upthread.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/
article-6077381

Asia Argento, some actress who was dating Anthony Bourdain before he killed himself, was one of Uncle Harvey's accusers.

Well, it turned out she was #MeToo herself. She had to pay hush money to some former child actor who claimed she banged him when he was 17. CA age of consent is 18 and was at the time.

162 Peters came substantially unhinged even back in Dubya years, then went into sort of remission (as he could hardly help but notice the lethal clownshow that was the Obama disaster), but now - WTF?


Saw somewhere that he is *still* beating the "Russia!!" drum, even now.


Those of a certain age will remember when LaRouche defined the wacky fringe of American politics. That fringe is now mainstream, in the culture, press, and Dem party.


As somebody noted on the twatters today, Alex Jones' woolly s**t is now not that far removed from the s**t being pushed by prominent names. It's just a different flavor.

That was a good article.

I love the New York Times quotes:

But on August 2 a page-one headline in The New York Times wrongly trumpeted the news: TENNESSEE SHERIFF is SLAIN IN PRIMARY DAY VIOLENCE .

An inaccurate NYT headline? That's unpossible.


The New York Times concluded: "Corruption, when and where it exists, demands reform, and even in the most corrupt and boss-ridden communities, there are peaceful means by which reform can be achieved. But there is no substitute, in a democracy, for orderly process."

Orderly process in a county totally controlled by a corrupt party machine. How does that work, exactly?

It is because of the Declaration of Independence--the why,

The Bill of Rights--that which is inalienable and applicable for all,

The Constitution--the blueprint plus the careful adherence for well over 200 years that has allowed us to flourish and become the most exceptional country on the planet, populated by an extraordinary people.

Our country is unique in the world. We have survived circumstances that would have destroyed lesser countries and come away stronger for it.

I have complete faith we will survive this latest problem in time, because we are Americans, and as such are denied the option of failure.

So cherish and protect where you live.

187 Ok, I'll say what I was going to say on a gun thread. I will continue to file FBI complaints. Those complaints will continue to be ignored by the U.S. Attorneys who work for the Department of Justice. Are my complaints ill-founded? No, they are right on the mark. Then why are they being ignored? I have filed a complaint with the DOJ-IG about that. My complaint will also be ignored.
Here are the facts. The Supreme Court in the case of U.S. Vs Price ruled about the law I often quote (18 USC 241):
"The language of section 241 is plain and unlimited... its language
embraces all of the rights and privileges secured to citizens by all of
the Constitution and all of the laws of the United States."(emphasis by the Supreme Court)
However, the DOJ - in the more than 140 years that the law in its various forms has existed, has only used it to protect abstract 14th amendment due process rights, and never used it to protect 1st and 2nd amendment rights.


It and 18 USC 242 are the only laws protecting our constitutional rights. Laws are necessary to protect the constitution because no criminal can be charged with a constitutional violation, only with a violation of the law. Neither 241 nor 242 has ever been used to protect 1st or 2nd amendment rights.


What that means from a legal standpoint is that the Government does not protect our rights from violation by criminals. Any Blue state can pass a law outlawing Conservative Speech without fear that they would be charged with a crime. (It would be a direct felony violation of 241 to even agree to do that - let alone actually do it, and it would be a violation of 242 to try to enforce such a law) The only recourse against such a law is to file a lawsuit to try to get the anti conservative speech law declared "Unconstitutional". In other words there is only a civil action to be taken against criminals.


Imagine for a second that the only thing you could do about murder would be a civil suit against the killer. I think you can agree that would be weak sauce indeed. The people who seek to kill our Constitutional rights are equally undeterred. That is why bigots push gun control laws; even though they are committing felonies when they do so - they know they won't be prosecuted for them.

The real threat to the country is not the bureaucrats, it is the U.S. Attorneys who are violating their oaths of office to 1. Preserve and Protect the Constitution, 2 faithfully execute the laws of the United States. These are the true enablers of the deep state swamp - without them the swamp quickly vanishes. The U.S. Attorneys are why Lois Lerner walks around freely and had no fear that her violations of law would earn her prison time.
When the burning times come remember who the real enemies of the Constitution are, and act accordingly.

197 From the Era of Good Feelings and Lace Wigs But Mostly Lace Wigs, the Smallest Minority from 2003:

"The first line of the Declaration is one strongly definitive of an American ideal - equality of birth.

There is a story, a joke in some ways, an allegory in others, that dates way back. In it, a British Lord travels to the Frontier West, America in the 1800's. His horse throws a shoe on the trail, so at the first little frontier town he comes to, he finds a blacksmith's shop to have the shoe replaced. As he rides up, he sees a large, sweaty, filthy man hammering on a piece of red-hot iron. The Lord sits on his horse, waiting to be served, but the blacksmith doesn't pay him any attention and continues to work his iron. Finally, the Lord, outraged to have been ignored this way by an obvious servant, dismounts, approaches the 'smith, and taps the man on the shoulder with his riding crop.

"You, man!" he barks, "Who is your Master! I wish to have a word with him!"

The blacksmith turns, looks at the Englishman, spits a stream of tobacco juice on the point of the Lord's boot and says,

"That sumbitch ain't been born."

Be well, friend.

anything, I will know immediately since it is never used by me. He needs
to have something he can go to in an actual emergency. By which I mean a
breakdown on the highway or some such. At this point I don't think he
would dare cross me. He did what he did cause he could hide it, but now
the chickens have come home to roost and he can't.

Excuse my French please but the fucker deserves to walk, at least.

That's a great story. I've heard it in different forms, so it may be apocryphal. The version I'm most familiar with had the American landowner mucking out his stable when the British Lord approached.

Whether it is literally true or not, it has a lot to say about the American character and our way of life.

Good question, ?.

I will never know. Have my guesses. Mostly he is immature in the financial area. He is much better than I am in some other areas. I am not gonna do any navel gazing with this 69 year old man that I have been married to for 40 years. Nothing would be accomplished except hurt feelings. I am simply not gonna let him ever handle any financials ever again.

Don't dirty my plate, dear, with less than six.

265 The dropped curb story needs more detail but it sounds like the builder didn't get a variance or didn't want the hassle to build the dropped curb from her driveway to the street since there seems to be a sidewalk.

She should take it up with the builder and if the builder no longer exists, she's shit out of luck.

273 years before i came around, there was another Mr. Re5ident 3vil.

they got married, for reals, xhe then tried to tell her what to do AND spend her money.

he was ejected, LAPD told him to FOAD when he pitched a bitch, and the "marriage" was annulled.

i have not, nor will i, asked questions about finances, other than to float possible expenditures i think she might be interested in, and ask if they are possible.

when given funding, such as grocery money, i make the buffalo on the nickle scream.

274 Thanks for the h/t MIsHum!

I've long loved the story of the Batte of Athens. Even though it happened in my neck of the woods, when I bring it up in conversation with my bar customers, too often the response I get back is "Is that what the movie 300 is about?"

My answer is usually "Well....kinda".

I mostly like it because it cements two axioms I was taught at an early age:

Too be righteously indignant, you must first Be righteous.

And

All that is required for evil to prevail is for good people to do nothing.

289 Someone here recently made the claim that Woody Allen's performance was derived in a great deal from Bob Hope. After watching footage from both I don't think that's true. They both typically play the joke of being the sensible guy caught up in a situation in which they are surrounded by irrational people, in whose presence they'll make ironic comments. But beyond that, there's nothing in common with their methods of performance. They acted in similar kinds of roles, that's it. Allen did express his admiration for Hope, but really they have distinctly different performances. Only an idiot could fail to perceive this.

A neighbor of mine died last summer, 90 or 91. He was a fixture around here. His request was to buried in his overalls in a pine box. His request was honored.

It was once remarked that he ran his mouth so much that the undertaker would have to wire his jaw shut. I looked carefully to see if I could see any wires. They did a good job.

And thus an era ended.

355 Lots of stuff at Quora about video gaming, and various complaints about it.

The impression I get is that game developers have gone apeshit nuts about trying to hypermonetize the games. You have to buy not only the console and the game, but also the upgrades, the add-ons, the weapons for the game, your partners/team for the game, new levels to the game, new portals inside of the game, new easter eggs, etc etc etc.

Is this what's going on with videogames, or is there more I'm missing?

"... left-wing hipster homos ..."


... and now for a massive injection of testosterone and to make up for no Gun Thread:

"The Best Handgun Caliber - A Real World Study"

https://www.youtube.com/watch
?v=nycYxb-zNwc

(If you don't trust the link, search for the title)


According to this guy:

Everything between .380 automatic and .44 Magnum is, based on police statistics, roughly equal. Stay away from .32 and under; .22 short, long & LR are truly poor choices for personal protection or bug-out, 12ga shotguns really are heavy medicine, and .454 Casull is about as likely to put a hole in Level IIIA body armor than 5.56mm.

He makes a compelling set of arguments, but I suspect that there's a bit more to it ... I suspect that .380 is sufficient, and everything above more-than-sufficient, but not enough to make a difference on normal people (I wonder what difference more meth-heads would make to his conclusions). 5.56mm (a real rifle round) and 00 12ga are more-than-sufficient, as expected, and as shown.

401 Amazon sells treadle belts. I like the Treadle Lady on Etsy as she has a couple different grades of leather belts. Aquarium tubing works in a pinch.

I have a G4 iBook coming this week. It was $35 and shipping was almost as much. I have one that I picked up for that price from the scrap bin at Free Geeks. Anyone that thinks Apple has good engineering should try putting a hard drive into one. You have to almost completely dismantle it to get to it. But I'm tired of reading Ace on my iPhone, so thought it would be a good computer for that. I use an old Thinkpad running Linux Mint to connect to the work VPN. I guess I just like old machines.

402 Arbalest...

I'd imagine that OUTSIDE OF the millions slain via execution by various Nazi, Soviet and Chinese handguns, the rankings on "deadliest" would quite likely be:

9 mm Para.

.38 Spl.

.22 LR.

Not because any of them are more effective in a rounds-on-target / fatality matrix.

But because of the sheer gross numbers of body counts racked up by each. And of course, the .22 will have a higher "survivor" rate, but the overall body count is HUGE, just owing to the numbers felled by that humble loading.

Poorer people tend to buy guns at the bottom of the food chain. R&G .22s and .38s, as well as Raven, Jennings and other bottom shelf .22s are beyond counting in the ghettos and barrios of America, and many other countries, beside.

And it's those poorer areas where the homicide rates are the highest.

Not too many H&K or Sig Sauer pistols being picked up by cops in arrests or post-shooting evidence. And if they are, they're usually guns that've been stolen from law-abiding owners.

Now, as to the best handgun cartridge for self defense?

Easy. It's loaded into whatever gun I'm closest to being able to grab at that moment in time.

The one in the end table by the front door, is in .45 ACP. No need to skimp, when weight and capacity isn't limited by clothing, burden and fatigue.

Telegraphing and yelling who is going to win during the match is over the top bullshit. Just bad taste but maybe that's the point to push her as a natural heel. I already she her 4 Horseman going against Charlotte Flair, who is a damn good wrestler and performer.

I've always found Ronda to be classless and tonight was more of the same with extra SJW crap.

If you want to try Linux on a Mac, the easiest no fuss no muss way would be to get Paralles for Mac.

It allows you to install other OS on a Mac as a virtual machines.


You can install many flavors of Linux straight from the drop downs.

My Mac laptop has Win7, Win 8, Ubuntu, and Mint.


The best thing about paralles is that you can run the other VMs in coherence mode that seemlessly melds the vm with the Mac OS.

422 355 The whole micro transaction thing is a sore spot in the gaming community, but it can be a part of a conflict between publishers and gamers over recouping costs as well.

I bought Castlevania II in 1988 for $39.99, which an online inflation calculator tells me is the equivalent of just over $85 today. Outside of Collector or related edition, no one charges that.

Yet gamers are use to high end graphics, music and often many hours of gameplay or multiplayer, and while higher volume of sales helps and advancing tech can make things easier, there is still a large layout for many games, particularly AAA games. On the other hand, there are tons of cheap indy games available of varying cost and quality.

So paying extra for say a Batman suit that doesn't change the game play itself but may remind you of your favorite version/movie representation of the character is one way of getting a few extra shekels for the developer. On the other hand there is the pay to win model where you can buy better gear or level up faster which can be truly hated ( Hi Era's Battlefront 2) as it requires either more cash layout vs hours and hours of grinding to get to a similar point.

Right now it seems a bit Wild West in terms of publishers trying to get more money and fans deciding if they are going to go along with this or decide where the dlc line is, and what is unacceptable to the larger fan base for publishers to push.

Long and short, it is Capitalism playing out right in front of us, so far with very limited gov interference, but who can guess how long that situation will stand.

Particularly if the customers decide that they are going to go class action over buying games that don't say that the company set it up so they need to shell out more in the digital realm to actually get the game play they were told they were buying. And given how govt regulation tends to go it's probably in companies best interest to figure out how to be honest with customers and find a balance before some govt. does it for them.

Here's the thing though. They took out the microtransactions from Battlefront 2 at launch and then EA went and said that it wasn't actually going to affect their bottom line. Then you have Warner Bros taking out the Microtransactions on Shadow of War and saying that this was the game how it should have been.

So there is a bit of Capitalism at play, but for the most part it's the publishers who have been looking at free mobile games making all this money from microtransactions and deciding that they want to stick those mechanics into $60 games. So they've decided that they don't want to just make a lot of money, they want to make ALL the money, bleeding the customer base dry. Its why they keep pushing the "single player is dead" bullshit. Not as easy to get people dumping money in constantly to a single player experience.

430 Bete, thanks for that explanation. Makes a lot of sense.

Re 'pay to win,' I can especially understand that. As some of you may know, I'm big on playing hold'em poker, and the BIG EVENT in the poker world is the World Series Of Poker, which is played out every year over several weeks at the Rio in Vegas. Also, a couple of years ago, and against the wishes of most of the players, the WSOP decided that to improve their TV ratings, they would POSTPONE THE FINAL 10-PLAYER SHOWDOWN until November, MONTHS after every other WSOP event has concluded.

Also, imagine playing all the way to become the poker player with the 10th most chips in the tournament on, say, June 20... and then being told, congratulations, you now have to drop everything and wait until NOVEMBER to continue playing. Some of these people actually have real jobs.

Anyway, I've heard that there have been a few times where mega-rich celebs have offered the WSOP foundation tons of money-- hundreds of thousands of dollars-- to be able to bypass all the other entrants in the WSOP Main Event (that's what the biggest WSOP tournament is called, and it has a prize pool of tens of millions of dollars) and actually COME IN AND START at the final table, along with the other 10 players. It's ridiculous but that's basically what "play to win" would and could ultimately cause to happen, if and when the philosophy is played out to its fullest.

You know it's gotta be tempting for the WSOP foundation to take said celeb's ton of money. On the other hand, they've got the integrity of the tournament to think about.

Anyway. Thanks again for the explanation.

433 @ X-ray. Concur.

I have suggested to some COBs that a good Weekend Thread, could be "Moron Projects", where we could send photos and descriptions of work performed.

This could run from an 'ette's quilt, to my newly built front stairs, railings and porch railings, to a precision rifle that Weasel put together, and etc.

While all guns are "tools", not all tools of course, are guns.

Frankly, the old saying that "A man is defined by his tools", rings true. Especially if you index-in the gun inventory into that equation.

And the average U.S. "hobbyist" has at his disposal, so much more of an inventory of precision tools of every description, and often the skills to use them, as to render ANY BATFE regulation.... but a laughable suggestion at best.

Put nothing but MOOG suspension bits under there, m'kay?

Cheap O'Reiley's (Chinese) brake rotors are fine, though. They work.

And mid-range shocks will do ya. Don't do the bargain basement ones, but no need for "premium", either.

Most all of the P-71 Interceptors in the junkyard now, are too high in mileage to be a reliable source of good used parts.

Pity.

But then, you might find a wrecked, but was a cherry, Chief's car in the pile, then feel free to yank, pick and unbolt as you will.

477 Let me introduce you to my 78 Olds Cutlass project. Stalled, while I try to save up the money for a Tremec TKO 600 transmission.

Yikes! Aren't those about 2 grand?
Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon

Yup. Thus the 'saving up the money'. Engine is a small block, but still making ~430 ft-lbs on the dyno, so torque rating is an issue, but more importantly, the rear end is 3.73, and 600 has gear ratios/overdrive ratio that is desirable.

478 JunieB (WELCOME!) : how do I refresh the conversation without having to jump to the top of the page all the time?

Calm Mentor (YAY JOB SUCCESS!): If you have not made a reply comment, just refresh. If you have made a comment, no joy, gotta start from the top on down, using the "jump to bottom" ling up top, below the content.

It is helpful to remember the comment number above your reply, so as to go back to it.


I don't know about other browsers, but on Opera, one can right-click on the tab and choose "Duplicate tab".

I do that, then use the reply box on the duplicate, hit post, optionally jump to bottom to check the bottom of the thread to see it posted okay, close the tab.

Continue reading on your original tab from the comment where you started then refreshing as usual.

Don't know if this helps JunieB (or anyone else), but this is my workaround for post-comment top-of-thread problem.

Pixyware challenges users' ingenuity. Why we love it.

So what is one of those worth, assuming it runs and drives, but is a tired ex-cop car? $500 is the minimum bid. Would it be reasonable to bid about $750 or so?

That is one of the cheaper ones. They have quite a few with minimum bids of $9-1100 dollars. i suspect that miles driven is the main factor for their setting the minimum bid.

Thanks to Obummer's C'ash fo' Clunkahs pogrom.

You go and surf the HELL outta Craigslist in Phoenix, Tuscon and El damn Paso on that car, and you'll see what I mean.

I'd bid low as you think you can get away with, WITH the caveat of you having to make sure that you can move it across the border in light of all the U.S. Spec requirements.

But every part you need to bring it to U.S. spec, is piled up in abundance in some U.S. junkyard, 'tween you and your AZ digs.

Well, it's illegal under U.S. law for me to bring a car to the USA with the intent of selling it there. A violation of immigration law. I'm putting an American car salesman out of work, doncha know. That is how it was explained to me by USCBP.

Now, if the car were pre-sold, and I were just delivering it to it's new owner, then everything is OK.

Very solid film, cool story, Billy Zane is charismatic as a motherfucker and the soundtrack...ssooooooooo bad ass! Got introduced to Filter and Machine Head with two soundtrack. Did it also have Sepultura? Might have had Sepultura. Definitely had Megadeth. Lots of great shit.

I did hear one report on the radio say that the ICE agents "checked their papers" and then arrested the man only. So, maybe she was legal, or maybe ICE didn't want the inevitable grief they'd get from the left. And I wouldn't doubt if they had the other four kids in the car as well.

For all these years, the powers that be figured out how to get low income people to be able to afford houses. The houses they can afford were older houses in older neighborhoods. One of the problems is, the people that move in don't know how to or can't afford to do basic maintenance . The house falls apart, the area deteriorates, the people move to the next area they can afford to buy, but not maintain.

Food Thread: "You can have any color as long as it's black"

restaurant nuts.jpg

I realize that this is a tortured comparison, but I see in the typical food lunatic a touch of the Colorado bakery insanity. When I go to a restaurant I expect that the business will accommodate me...up to a point. Sure, asking for extra-crispy fries is a reasonable request, but there is a point at which those requests become too time-consuming and expensive for any restaurant to tolerate.

It is a view that places the individual at the center of the universe, and I simply cannot tolerate that attitude. We are a (mostly) free people, but that freedom does not extend to the power to control others.

But back to food...I am usually happy to accommodate guests in my home with specific dietary requirements, but I have a line that I will not cross. If you don't like it...don't eat it.

Lewis Carroll had it exactly correct:

..."don't give yourself airs!
Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?
Be off, or I'll kick you down stairs!"

That being said, recently we had dinner guests* who brought a home-made gluten-free cake, and it was pretty damned tasty!

*Of course one was a conservative, and both loved baseball...

Impossible-Ham-Swiss-Pie-5.jpg

Look, it's just a quiche without a pie shell. But it does sound easy, although what the hell is "dry biscuit mix?" Seriously...I have seen the biscuits in the tins in the refrigerator case, and have eaten my share of them. But is there really a product marketed as biscuit mix? Why? It's flour and baking powder and a bit of salt and maybe sugar. Am I missing something elemental about the complexity of mixing three dry ingredients in a bowl?
Impossible Ham And Swiss Pie
I like dishes like this for large breakfast or brunch gatherings, because they can feed a bunch of people and they don't require the skills of a short-order cook. I like cooking as much as the next guy, but sometimes I want to be able to relax with the people around the table with my breakfast bourbon and wax poetic about the joys of French Toast with butter and salt.

I haven't had the opportunity to mock Chipotle for months! I guess their much-vaunted programs to address filthy, microbe-ridden food didn't work quite as well as they expected. It's one thing to address specific breakdowns in the logistics that allowed tainted ingredients to enter their restaurants, but when multiple attempts to remedy the problem have failed, perhaps it is time to address the overall design of the system. It is obvious that Chipotle does not get it. Their ersatz "farm-to-table" marketing plan is based on a chaotic supply chain that is uncontrollable. There is something to be said for that Sysco or McDonalds semi rolling up to the restaurant. Maybe the ingredients aren't locally sourced and caressed by vegan wood nymphs before harvest, but usually people don't get sick from them. And the current catastrophe is even worse. Unsafe temperatures means that the food safety system within the restaurant broke down.
CDC: Food left at unsafe temperatures led to illnesses at Ohio Chipotle
McDonald's has almost 20 times the number of restaurants, yet we hear about far fewer cases of food poisoning! Why is that?

I will cheerfully eat oysters and beef tartare, love a runny egg in my ramen, and become apoplectic over medium-well pork, but I would think twice before eating at a Chipotle.

I love this dish, which is simply a fancy version of the chopped chicken livers my maternal grandmother made. That, and her cheese blintzes were my happiest memories of her kitchen (everything else was...um...sort of crappy)

Don't bother with the Cognac Gelée unless you really want authenticity. It's nice, but this dish used to be quite rustic until it was dandified by snooty city chefs.

Julia Child’s Chicken Liver Mousse

(Adapted from Mastering the Art of French Cooking)

• 2 c. chicken livers
• 2 tbsp. minced shallots
• 2 tbsp. butter
• 1/3 c. cognac
• 1/4 c. whipping cream
• 1/2 tsp. salt
• 1/8 tsp. allspice
• 1/8 tsp. pepper
• Pinch of thyme
• 1/2 c. melted butter
• Kosher salt and pepper

1. Remove any greenish or blackish spots from the livers, as well as any sinew. Cut the livers into 1/2″ pieces.

2. Melt butter over medium heat in a sauté pan until foam has subsided. Sauté livers with the shallots in butter for 2 to 3 minutes, until the livers are just stiffened, but still rosy inside. Scrape into the blender jar.

3. Pour the wine or cognac into the pan and boil it down rapidly until it has reduced to 3 tablespoons. Scrape it into the blender jar.

4. Add the cream and seasonings to the blender jar. Cover and blend at top speed for several seconds until the liver is a smooth paste.

5. Add the melted butter and blend several seconds more. Adjust seasoning.

6. Pack into the bowl or jar and chill for 2 to 3 hours.

Cognac Gelée
• 1/2 c. water, separated
• 1/2 tsp. unflavored gelatin
• 1/2 tsp. sugar
• 1/2 c. dry vermouth
• 2 tsp. cognac
1. Place 1/4 c. of warm water in a ramekin, sprinkle unflavored gelatin and let it stand for about 10 minutes.
2. In a small saucepan heat wine and sugar over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes.
3. Once the gelatin has softened, add the other 1/4 c. of hot water to the ramekin and dissolve until mixture becomes clear. Add the gelatin mixture to the warm wine mixture and mix thoroughly.
4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add cognac. Let the warm mixture stand until it almost reaches room temperature. 5. Once it has cooled, pour over chilled mousse. Return the mousse to the fridge and chill until the gelée has set.

26 I made some rather spectacular shish kebab last night, to the point where 3 women and I put away almost 4 lbs of meat (sirloin prime) with tons of marinated veggies. I marinated the meat for 8 hours in vinegar, lemon juice, and lime juice, plus Worcestershire sauce, cardamon, soy sauce, etc.. I was afraid the meat would be to acidic, but it was really, really good. The veggies got a nice balsamic vinaigrette.

All in all, one of my better efforts.

A good thermometer is indispensable here (in fact I use multiple ones to be sure). I usually let mine go to 200-205C, and it's perfect. Less than that, and the connective tissue hasn't yet broken down, hence toughness.

Jewells, the secret to getting it tender is to cook it low and slow in the oven. Maybe 300 degrees, and at least half an hour per pound, maybe a bit more. Don't take it out until a knife goes into it really easily. Or a shiv.

Poorly trained, minimum wage employees, who lol'd at the 15 minute long Food Safety 101 training video... what the hell could go wrong?

Seriously, fresh food and vegetables still need to be kept cool. Sitting in a 72 degree environment means (math involved) some huge array of bacteria are replicating every minute. On a long enough time line those who show up at the end of the day are bound to pay homage to the porcelain gods shortly thereafter.

This isn't rocket science. Chipotle needs to die. It's obvious they're not learning from the experience of poisoning their customers.

Weasel, that only works when the restaurant pours a bushel worth of the steamed crabs in the middle of the table and everyone takes what they want. This is for serious shell fish consumers. Talking is permitted but usually restricted to terse comments with grunted replies. Getting the meat out of a crab is serious business, requiring attention. Socialize with steak or pizza.

Posted by: Weasel at August 19, 2018 04:17 PM



If you're at a location that specializes in crab picking it's quite fun. The traditional red striped picnic table covering, or hard core places -- even raw newspaper. Crayons for the kids. Lots of beer. Lots of crab.

Unhurried atmosphere. Fenwick Island, Delaware.

Worth every penny. But if the crab place doesn't specialize in that environment it's not worth it. They'll want to chase you out the door. Crab pickin' takes a lot of time and requires much beer.

Posted by: Forgot My Nic at August 19, 2018 04:37 PM (LOgQ4)

85 Crab pickin is an acquired skill. Some good tutorials on tube you and elswhere.

Eating steamed blue crab ifits in nicely with the concept of 'slow food'. Just add wine and good company!

So, I give Joe, the checker, the high sign and say, "You know, Safeway should have a separate checkout line for vegetarians.". The woman turns toward me and gives up a kind of half-smile.

105 OT: I had a terrible thought this morning when I woke up... What if the social media platforms are also shadow-censoring conservative "Get out the Vote" efforts? I was out of town for work when our state held its primaries, but I don't recall getting any kind of notification or update, like I have in past years, about the date or where to vote. I didn't even realize it was the day until I started seeing all of my liberal connections on FB posting about how they voted.

I think this would explain at least some of the significant drop in turnout for Republicans compared to 2016... Any thoughts? Is there any way we can verify or test this?

111 If you have fries as a marquee product you better not suddenly swap out for a new version. I suppose they can do the new coke thing and bring back "classic fries" only a slightly inferior version. Then your customer will get the Mexican version that still has phosphates.

No I'm not punchin' anyone over fires I shouldn't be eating anyway but I would probably be mad enough to go somewhere else if I ever did want to, you have to ease into changes like that and make the new version seem like a step up. Bad move to end the old way all of a sudden like that.

126 Mixes are formulated to be as fool-proof as possible. It takes any guess work out of the recipe. The ingredients are also milled/ground to certain specs to help out the results. ( and they're more likely to be within expiry, unlike the grab bag of ingredients you have lying around.)

Things like cake mixes have industrial ingredients that few home cooks would mess with and produce better results for 85% of home cooks.

And if you only make a couple of cakes, trays of biscuits, etc, per year - who fucking cares.

We always had rye bread, pumpernickel, liverwurst, sauerkraut, etc. in the house because my Dad wanted those things. Grandma's house meant sauerbraten dinners, while Xmas Eve was always cold cuts and potato salad, stollen, etc. After the old folks and my Dad passed on, those food traditions bit the dust. I never ate most of that stuff anyway. The only thing that still makes it on the menu is sweet and sour red cabbage. Love that stuff with pork.

189 I've made the Impossible Ham and Swiss Cheese Pie. Assumed "dry biscuit mix" meant Bisquick so I used that. (Had to go out and buy a box because I don't use it.)
The recipe is easy and good although it has a little too much ham for my family's taste. It's fun to get creative with it and substitute ingredients: zucchini and hot pepper jack, bacon and cheddar, etc.
The family loves it but I love the taste of eggs and find it just a little "doughy". I searched recipes for crustless quiche and found a trove of them online. They're all very easy and fast to make, and none of them call for "dry biscuit mix".

Question: Anyone know if there's a difference between a frittata and a crustless quiche?

That's what I liked about the movie 'Burnt' with Bradley Cooper. He sits down at a fast food place and in effect breaks down the components of a Big Mac in high-hifalutin culinary terms.

Frittata starts cooking on the stovetop in a frying pan then transferred to oven. Quiche goes into the oven "raw" as it were, in a pie plate, crustless or not.

I don't like pie crust so I love to make crustless sweet or savory pies or angel pies (meringue crust, kind of like a pavlova but no vinegar).

I might not be wrong. They make a fetish out of fresh baked bread but it's factory bread that they ship to be bake-ready, so god knows what they do to it.

I was at a Wegmans recently. They have a restaurant attached to them that seems to want to appear upscale. I picked up their menu and shoved it into my pocket. Last night I looked at it.

Their 'signature' meal seems to be a hamburger that they proudly announce as being 'irradiated meat'.

Yeah, I have a unit in my own home that irradiates meat. It's called a fvcking microwave oven.

The difference being, I know how to put a slab of burger meat between two containers, add some water and sauce, nuke it, flip it, drain it, add cheese, and end up with something pretty close to edible.

Close. But no cigar. Certainly not worth twelve bucks.

I was in the market yesterday and I noticed a can of mushrooms marked "gluten-free"
Are there actually mushrooms with gluten ?
... or can I expect "gluten-free" tomatoes next ?

---
My wife and son are celiacs, and we've found that the vast majority of products on the shelf have gluten-based fillers. This includes soups, mixed-flavor seasonings, flavor packets. Anything that would use flour as a thickener. Even candy like Nerds and twizzlers have it.

Then you have products like Cheerios that advertise as GF and still are not (at least reliably so) due to cross-contamination within their facilities.
Then you have restaurants that provide a gluten free menu that is not prepared correctly.
Celiacs cannot have even have a little gluten. Microscopic amounts still destroy the digestive system's ability to work correctly. So food labeling is vital, yet often inadequate. And restaurant staff would do well to learn a few more things about food allergies too.

The punishment has surprised defense attorneys, disappointed law enforcement and raised concerns from a victims advocacy group, the Houston Chronicle reported . The victim said through a former attorney that she had no comment and wanted to put it all behind her.

in childhood vaccines but do believe in homeopathic remedies, my guess
is that the overlap would be large.

From all the jerks here, a little empathy. Imagine your wife wakes up one day in her 30s and now can't eat anything (except Salads) in 90% of the restaurants you go to.

Yes to the food labeling. If they are going to mandate it at all, they should have high standards so that people like your wife and son can have more confidence.

But restaurants? Maybe they could stand improvement, especially as to honesty, but ..... at what point can they draw the line at accommodating every eccentricity?
I just don't know.

No, it isn't. But, it is great as something to fill me up. Since I hate going to the grocery store, it is awesome to have a pantry item that has an incredible shelf life. Also, it is great bcz it is so filling! If I want to lose some weight, it is a great tool for that.

I know some people can do the diets without carbs, but it is not my body. I could eat a whole roast chicken and still be hungry. However, a serving of oatmeal and I'm fine.

Yeah, I don't mind if someone's digging into a lobster at my table or something, but I'll go ahead and decline. It's not rational, because I like fish and eel, which aren't particularly personable animals, but at least you can look at it and say "that's a piece of meat". Maybe that's it. Raw oyster e.g. doesn't look like anything good.

Oatmeal is OK. I don't know if I'd call it "good". Some kinds are better than others, but it's still oatmeal. I was never bribed with the promise of oatmeal when I was little. I've never said the words "I get to eat oatmeal" in that order. I've never come downstairs thinking "I really hope there's oatmeal".

Nah, two different things in my mind. Ordinary meat-flavored meats (steak, chicken wings, trout filets) are... I don't know what the word would be. Familiar maybe? I don't mind if an animal's cute. I just like to know that I'm eating something I wouldn't be afraid to pet.

If my first reaction would be to step on it or spray it with organophosphates, it's not food to my mind, it's vermin. Things that skitter away when you lift logs. Things that drop on your tent when you're camping. Things that are icky when you step on them barefoot.

334 Rex my man, I think you are misreading some of the comments.

My wife is what I'll call a borderline celiac, with a pile of auto-immune illness stacked on top of that. When go out to eat, she picks from what will not make her sick. Simple as that. Doesn't beat on the staff or chef. She doesn't *suggest* a host/hostess alter their menu to reflect her limitations. But then again, sometimes she doesn't eat anything at a function.

For her, it's simply a matter of making the proper choices for her and not being annoyed that the rest of the world is different. It's just the way the (gluten free) cookie crumbles for her.

No one is poking fun at your fam because they have an illness.

Sunshine

2 oz white rum*

1 oz pineapple juice

splash of grenadine

Shake with ice. Strain into cocktail glass Drink!


*Very simple cocktail so it's best to use a white rum with lots of flava:

First choice - Bank's 5 Island Rum - pure rum joy in a bottle. Your tongue will explode from happiness.

Second choice - Bayou Silver - pure sugary, marshmallow, vanilla-y goodness. It will make your tonsils shiver.

They had a "lobster night" which was a lobster at five dollars with corn and taters.

I must have ate 5 or 6 before I was done.

arieswoman suggested I check out a place called Sam's Italian Market for ingredients. I looked it up and it turned out to be very close to where I work. They sell top round steak that is sliced very thin, and also rolls that are made with high gluten flour. That is a key. You need a roll that can stand up to the filling.

The one I made yesterday was the best one yet. It took a few tries to get the proportions and technique right, and I think I'm getting the hang of it.

Flash frozen, sure. Same everywhere.

Lobsters are sold live. Time in the pound changes their flavor. Even in a seaside town lobster from the pound are not as sweet as lobster you just pulled from your traps.

Oysters and clams are similar. You want to eat them as close to the source as possible. I know of chi-chi restaurants that serve oysters from the Pacific Northwest as if they're some sort of delicacy, to match the wine.

Yeah, no. They're oysters from 3,000 miles away. I'm sure that they're succulent in Portland.

Fresh ocean caught seafood is best near where it's caught. Previously frozen codfish these days is almost always Alaskan because New England ate all its cod, but it's not fresh.

I believe that Louisiana oysters are really good. I'll eat them in Louisiana some day.

I had a buddy from London who rented a room in my old house and would get drunk and start craving mussels. He'd get the frozen bags (the only fresh mussels you can get here are zebra mussels) with butter already in the bag, prepare them however you're supposed to, and sit there watching TV snacking on a big bowl of mussels, happy as a bivalve. Then, without fail, 6-12 hours after, he'd be in the downstairs bathroom groaning like death and firing jets of dirty dishwater from whatever orifice seemed most suitable at the time, for about four hours straight.

And then he'd do it all again a few weeks later.

419 My wife is what I'll call a borderline celiac, with a pile of auto-immune illness stacked on top of that. When go out to eat, she picks from what will not make her sick. Simple as that. Doesn't beat on the staff or chef. She doesn't *suggest* a host/hostess alter their menu to reflect her limitations. But then again, sometimes she doesn't eat anything at a function.

For her, it's simply a matter of making the proper choices for her and not being annoyed that the rest of the world is different. It's just the way the (gluten free) cookie crumbles for her.
Posted by: Tonypete at August 19, 2018 06:31 PM (9rIkM)




I do the same. I try and be sly so I don't have to tell anyone or explain it. I'll pile stuff on my plate and move it around so people will think I ate something when I haven't.

This is the hand I was dealt and I learned to deal with it. Yes, it sucks, but that's life. I don't expect others to conform...nor would I want them to. Hell, I don't even like admitting it.

437 Reposted from the morning thread:

177 A couple weekends ago I tried making bacon in the microwave. I had previously used the conventional oven. It took a little experimentation with cooking times, but eventually I was pleased with the result.

I used a dinner plate lined with paper towels, but I had to arrange the bacon so it wouldn't hang over the side. Friday night I went to Bed, Bath, & Beyond to see if I could find a rectangular tray the right size, and I found one for $10. The bacon sits atop ridges and the grease drips between them. I tried it yesterday and it works well.

Of course, everyone has their favorite way of cooking bacon, but I think I like the microwave best. It enables me to fine-tune the cooking time until it's perfect. And it doesn't burn. The first time I tried it, I cooked it too long and it was as dry and stiff as cardboard. But it wasn't burnt, and was still edible.

A lot of meat - around 2 pounds a day, at least. Don't need any other food.

Eliminates any possible sources of food intolerance, allergy, inflammation, resets your internal insulin/glucose meter, provides all the nutrients neede to rebuild da!aged organs.

I also have the original 60 year old gas range. The oven was replaced some time in the 1980s and uses electronic ignition, which I've had to have replaced twice.

But the range still uses pilot lights, so it works when the power is out. My power was out for three days after Hurricane Sandy, and I was able to heat up leftovers from the freezer. I never had to dip into my stockpile of canned food.

When I was in college, we had an old refrigerator with a handle that was broken off.

But it still worked fine. We left it sitting on the top, and just held it in place and applied pressure to the button that opened the refrigerator.

Allergies are the opposite of bacteria which our bodies can build up an immunity to. We are born with or by the age of six we develop, - two theories - a cache of allergic resistance and as we go through life we use it up.

But when you've lived in Hawaii, what passes for centipedes here are a joke. For clowns to laugh at. At the circus. You can't even ride them. Leave them all night outside and your car still has rims the next morning. They aren't running human trafficking rings. How are they even centipedes?

That depends on your property and where you live. Where I am, shoveling snow once in awhile is not as bad as mowing every f*cking week.

Of course, if you live in a place like Minnesota, Wisconsin, or upstate New York where you get snowfall every couple of days, I can see how that could get old real fast.

663 Whether you call it Autumn or Fall it's the most beautiful time of year. The sunlight is the best of the year, golden and clear. The smell of the leaves, their colors, their sound as they go skittering across the road. Instead of a mass of green, the trees stand out as individuals. Warm days and crisp nights, apples and pears, pumpkins and cornstalks, Fall baking, Halloween, Thanksgiving. The relief from summer, the anticipation of the holidays. Not a single bad thing about it. Even the leaf-raking is fun, make big piles and watch the dog romp around.

If you cut from the top it will close on the blade and bind it if it has room to fall. Maybe jam logs under it on either side of the cut and it won't bind the saw. Should be a piece of cake.

Like... barometric effects? I don't think so, not really. 33 feet underwater is one atmosphere. So the effect of being under about 100 kilometers of air (some thin, granted) is the same as being 10 meters underwater. 20 meters underwater would be another 100km of air.

Funny story:

Last week at Insights training class, the instructor Greg Hamilton is a shouty Ranger/Special Forces operator. He was doing a long discussion about how kitted out his house is, etc. Really making us armchair commandos sound reasonable in comparison, frankly.

He mentioned that in his truck, he has seat covers and he asked "And what do you think I have wrapped around both seats under those seat covers?"

And I said, "Det Cord?"

That actually broke his verbal stride. I laugh at my own jokes.

Anyway good course, Greg's a good trainer but not for new shooters, not unless you don't mind getting shouted at.

For those of you who occasionally break free of this smart military blog, you may have heard of Smallest Minority blog at http://smallestminority.blogspot.com . Kevin routinely posts discourse with gun grabbers, and he does great work.

He's run into some health trouble, and his family has set up a gofundme page. The goal is a very modest $5k, but I think he's going to need more than that. I am posting this here in the hopes the Horde can do for him what it did for the Scout Sniper raffle and blow the doors off the goal.

Background to image. 29 June 1944 PT-308 and PT-309 off Elba engaged two Italian MAS torpedo boats. One enemy boat lost power and caught fire, the PT boats took prisoners. Among the prisoners was the commander of the Italian MAS flotilla at La Spezia. The next day the MAS boat, 562, was found still afloat by aircraft so PT-306 towed it back to base. The above image was on a roll of film recovered aboard 562.

Then again this image was also on the same roll of film.

Apparently in studying hibernation in mammals, it has been discovered that it is possible to induce hibernation in mice for about two days using Hydrogen Sulfide -- Sour gas AOP would call it. It is deadly, but apparently it shuts down heart and lung tissue.

There is a theory that this is an ancient metabolism pathway that was made important because the seas would go stagnant and bacteria would generate massive amounts of H2S that would dissolve into the sea and stratify, until something would churn it up, and release bubbles that would either roll over the land or be absorbed into the sea, and supposedly, a reaction to go into suspended animation was a way to survive this sort of poisoning, and it just was too useful in secondary metabolic pathways to discard, evolutionary-wise speaking.

846 After building a building at work the last few yrs I never want to be involved in such a project again, too many fussy and expensive regulations nowadays.
But If I had tons of money I think building an underground home would be cool. Surprised they didn't catch on more, wonder why?

There's a lot of code about doing things "below grade", ie, underground involving wiring, moisture barriers, etc.

You can have a lot of problems with everything because of moisture intrusion building "below grade".

A lot of people have moisture problems in their basements, but imagine if all your living was down there? Mold, moisture, electrical problems, etc.

I have a poured basement, but typical cinder block foundations that has been dry for years, etc can have moisture intrusion when the ground really gets saturated just by hydraulic pressure.

They're probably a comfy temperature year-round. Lots of space. I bet if you were a squash player it would be appealing.

I'd have to see what it takes to put in light pipes though. Not that I mind the dark, but it gets old after a while.

870 Well, after 100 comments, plus summer, plus blah blah blah, so .... gun thread!


Hmmm. What is there to talk about?


Well, I reload and rarely buy commercial ammo, but just took a quick look and it seems a "marker price" for ammo - 9mm 115 gr, new, brass-cased - is under $10/box from the cheapest online sources (maybe just barely under if you add in shipping).


That's good. Marker .223 (155 gr/new/brass case) is $260+/case, which also seems quite good. (SGAmmo)


Depending on location, and going with commercial reloads and/or steel case, prices are even lower.

887 Weasel I have a decent supply of components (ahemm, putting it mildly), so I don't even think of buying commercial, but I am still reloading at less cost than even the steel case or commercial reloads for 9mm.


Would be great if ammo prices were such that I actually decided WTF, just buy some instead of making it, for a while.


I want 9mm at $125/case, and gas at $2.50/gallon.


(given spectacular idiotic under-capitalization of refining, of course, gas prices in a hot economy have trouble falling - thanks, fake science "environmentalism" cult!)
