Friday Night ONT: Mary Prankster Edition

Welcome to Friday y'all. I tell you, the hanging Windows update I mentioned last night has been giving me fits. Some Morons were very helpful last night, but what I was trying didn't work, and I don't know what to do. I'm sure there are a lot of updates I still need, but until I get this one fixed I can't get to them. Anyhoo, it's the weekend, have y'all got your budgets in order to have some fun?

Political Correctness


Former agent warns the Secret Service has a troubling obsession that’s putting Trump’s life in serious danger


Ever notice that we didn't used to have loons jumping the White House fence and all of the other stuff we see almost regularly now? A new book by Dan Bongino delves into why, and he should know as he spent years on the presidential detail. Turns out the SS is more concerned with diversity in the ranks rather than competence. This leftist obsession with diversity is going to kill us all. In any organization, “diversity” (as the left means it-race and sex, certainly not ideas) can be a great thing. However, diversity is a by-product, not a goal. A good job will have people of all races, creeds and colors striving to fill it. This creates a natural diversity that can be valuable. But by setting out to be “diverse” without considering whether the people can do the actual job, all you get is chaos. Remember that if an assassin takes someone down after out running a one legged Latino lesbian midget who is providing “security” for the victim.


Living in a Leftist Paradise


Tired Of Democracy? Singapore Is for You!

The author relates how he realized, as his plane was coming in to Singapore, that he had prescription medication in his bag which would make him subject to the death penalty after he landed. Clean? Yep. Modern? Yep. Wealthy? Singapore is all of those things. You still couldn't pay me enough to live there. I'll take my nice, messy liberty, thank-you-very-much.

Teen-Adult Sex: What Every Parent Should Know

It's by Chad Felix Greene, a gay conservative who is quite open about his own teenage experiences hooking up with adult men. Not a pleasant read, but an important one.

Musical Interlude

How many of you have heard of Mary Prankster? If ever there was a musician that should be a Moron, it's her. A five foot nuthin', foul mouthed, tattooed, dynamo in red hightops, she was, and I mean this quite sincerely, the finest lyricist to come out of the Baltimore area since Frank Zappa. Calling her brand of music “cowpunk”, she played over 1,000 live shows in a career that spanned the decade ending in 2005.



“Tits and Whiskey” was her first big song around here, despite saying “Fuck” 13 times in the song, it received wide airplay in the Baltimore area on alternative stations.

Her catalog ran the gamut of subjects, and her songs seemed to perfectly capture the post-grunge area angst from the POV of Generation X. She wrote love songs, (Tempest);

My manner is imperious
My logic is empirical
And I'm bad at being a girlfriend
So I'm hoping for a miracle

I fear your disappointment
When I don't turn out ethereal
Though either way for me
I know it means some new material

Now don't go thinkin' that you're special
Just because you are
'Cause I'm bound to overthink it
And I always go too far

But if you think this kind of tempest
May just be your cup of tea
Then I'd like to offer you
The heart of me


Songs the highlight the troubled nihilism of a casual sex generation (Mercyfuck);


And I don't want to live anymore
And I don't want to give anymore
If I fawn, if I flirt, I just keep getting hurt
And it's taken its toll

I wish I could fuck all my sorrow away
And fuck 'til the dawn of the next fucking day
Fuck the chorus and verse, fuck the pain getting worse
Fuck it all 'til I burn


And even songs that recognize the futility of it all and the demands of adulthood (New Tricks).


Spent more years than I remember
In a club where every member
Never feels as if he quite belongs

Searching for my pleasure in
Some brand-new kind of deadly sin
My life is just as aimless as my songs

I'm gonna make it back to college
I'm gonna quit my job
I'm gonna buy the store that I'd been planning just to rob

I'm gonna teach this old dog new tricks
Drinking from the brimming cup
As soon as I wake up

Mary Prankster was obviously just a stage name, I don't know her real name, not may people do. After she hung up her Chucks, she moved to New York where, I assume, she's still active in the creative arts somehow. I'm now in my 50s, and yet I still miss gong to a smoky dive bar and watching Mary just burn the place down.

I'll leave you with “Swan Dive”. I'm happy, successful, and more confident in myself and my life than most, but this is still the best song I've ever heard for capturing that feeling that we all get sometimes, that feeling that it's all a big sham. That feeling that any second now, the fourth wall is going to pull back and we'll be standing awkward and alone on a big stage where we don't belong while the audience laughs at us.

Yeah, I'm a big fan.

Is This Some Kind of an Oak?


American oaks share a common northern ancestor

I'll just leaf this here. It's kind of acorn-y thing to say, but more than tree puns is a waste. Don't bark at me, I'm sure they won't take root in your brain, and soon you'll be able to branch out into other subjects. I may be going out on a limb here, but I bet nothing sticks.

20 Well, I took a willow stick to the ass, so I'll just have to repost my response to "Riker is actually just a Plot Device of Implausible Suaveness and is not actually a character qua character."

I agree. Riker was the beta male, and beyond that had no character of his own. Since it's Star Trek canon that the Kobayashi Maru is the gold test for character, let's do this.

I can imagine how Major Kira might handle it (terrorism). Same with O'Brien (blowing sh!t up with engineering). Or Picard (strategy and diplomacy), or Worf (blowing sh!t up with photon torpedos). Even Wesley (he'd probably get the instructors administering the test horribly killed).

I have no goddamn clue how Riker would approach it.

21 Heh, moments in great thoughts.

I frequent a site called stackoverflow for help with software development. It's become such a great Q&A site, that it has spawned other sites for other areas of expertise. There's a new one that has come up recently called Interpersonal Skills, which is really just a spot for SJW to ask dumb questions. I loved this questions so much I had to share it:

22 mnw, yeah that could explain some it. That which actually made it to Spain instead of sinking or being liberated by English seadogs.

Just remember Piper built Space Vikings around the notion that all this easy cheap wealth which the New World provided affected Spain in an economic sense, depressing local production of wealth while rewarding brigandage.

23 I lived in Singapore for 4 years. That guy is a little dramatic.


Yes, they have some weird laws. Yes, they are tough on drug traffickers. You can even buy t-shirts there mocking their laws. But we flew in and out of Singapore dozens of times and never had one damn problem. I even had a case of chewing gum in one of my bags after a home leave. Nothing happened. I seriously doubt NO ONE ever flies into Singapore with prescription drugs.


And Michael Fay deserved every lash he got. He was a POS.

But they split off Kirk's authority into Picard, and you can't have a Kirk archetype as a second-in-command.

Freakin' transporter. The more I watch episodes of Star Trek, the more the thing doesn't make sense. Basically, it kills and disintegrates you, and then re-assembles you somewhere else. Seems like black magic.

76 Hacker blogger Eric Raymond has a good post up about the ongoing attack on Confederate memorials:
http://esr.ibiblio.org/?p=7660

He makes the point that part of the process of reconciliation after the Civil War was the "adoption" of Confederate heroes as American heroes (hence the Army bases named after Confederate generals). The current PC offensive is trying to undo that process.

Trouble is, that means the other side of the compromise is in danger: the part where Southerners agreed to rejoin the Union peacefully, with no endless guerrilla warfare and terrorism.

If they're going to undo that deal, the liberals may not like what they get . . .

Yes, they have some weird laws. Yes, they are tough on drug traffickers. You can even buy t-shirts there mocking their laws.

I seriously doubt NO ONE ever flies into Singapore with prescription drugs.

Played this evening and ran into another bass player from Alabama, really nice guy who asked me if I'd be interested in doing a church gig some Sundays. I've done a grand total of one in my life and screwed it up so badly I still cringe to this day. I would up just turning down my bass gradually and faking it.

Didn't read the linked item, but it's long been a staple of not-too-worldly or bright American urban types to dump on S'pore. My favorite was a friend's sister and BIL (NYC folks), perfect examples, whining about the "police state" - um, airhead lefties from NYC, which at that time imposing limits on soda size, and cigarette sales, and gawd knows what else, under the authoritarian freak Bloomberg - all aghast at S'pore's public decency rules.

OK.

And I find it completely impossible to believe you could be executed, even arrested, in S'pore for prescription drugs for which you had the paperwork.

Food courts are good in S'pore.

This question, if you ever read Jesus Huerta de Soto, was first addressed by the Salamancan school in the 16th Century, where they pretty much explained that it was inflation caused by bringing that much wealth in and spending it, and prescribed to the Spanish crown to stop spending so much. Which was never going to happen while there was money to spend.

Dr Huerta de Soto is a wonder to read, and vastly more entertaining to listen to if you speak Spanish.

Woobie!

I think it was the early 80s when it started to be known by that name. Certainly by the time I went through basic in '86.

The classic woobie is great, but the Kifaru version is to die for. After a little research, I broke out the sewing machine and made a copy of the Kifaru woobie using similar continuous filament insulation. It's rough, but awesome.

245 Contrary to what's posted way up above, lots of people retiring in CA (and moving there to do it). Typically of means, of course. Some of the nicest, least crowded areas of SoCal have been rendered much less so the last few decades, with retirees making up much of the increase.

And "CA" or "SoCal" are pretty meaningless, as far as "live-ability" designators - lots of variation, by specific location. Visiting for limited time is great, lots to enjoy on visits, but my whole life you could not pay me to live in the LA area (defined as, now, from Irvine to Thousand Oaks, the beach to Riverside). Outside those lines, still some nice places. All depends on your interests. If those rarely lie beyond your front door, then anywhere will do.

Ehhh, maybe. Anyone who thinks orientation is all nature or all nurture is frankly looking for simple answers to complex questions. As with everything, the facts are composed of a multitude of individual experiences, all of which have different influence on who or what a person is.

Are some people gay because of gay sex during the years when their sexuality was being formed? Undoubtedly.

Are some people gay just because they are? Undoubtedly.

Are there a billion incremental points between the two? Undoubtedly.

I had success with both w7 and w8 by doing the incremental upgrade approach. Looked at the dates of the updates and only selected a few of the oldest on each pass. Cross checked the results against the installation list and tried to figure out what patch was missing if something didn't install. Usually, it seemed that by just selecting the item that failed to install and doing another install pass would clear things up.

It did take hours though because nothing had been updated for a year or more.

Posted by: Jeff Weimer at September 23, 2017 12:14 AM (17QyB)



Point of Order. Tom Paris was a Lieutenant. During the show he was demoted to Ensign for something he did but I don't think it lasted all that long and he was again back to Lt. well before the series ended.

314 I'm not a violent person, but I'd probably bash adults into next week who tried to take advantage of my kid-male or female. Right now because of his depression he's very down on himself. I can't even imagine how that must feel to want love, validation and acceptance and have some adult use you sexually for fifteen minutes and then disappear.

319 It is amazing. Even the language is being changed.

Statutory Rape.
Molestation.
Teen-Adult 'Hook-ups'.

(One of these things is not like the others.)

I am not saying that teens do not have agency, but it seems like people used to be able to describe better what was happening when an older, more experienced person takes advantage of a much younger, naive one.

321 279 I still hated how Abrams handled Kirk's test in the reboot. I'd have rather seen one of his failures first to see how he handles that. Or actually make his cheating look better.

OR actually have the hearing and give him the opportunity to justify his actions. Remember they were supposed to have been really impressed with what he did in cheating the KM and we got none of that.
Posted by: buzzzion at September 23, 2017 12:03 AM (cAnNx)


The more time that has passed, the more I hate nu-Trek. I was bothered by how they handled the reboot - washing everything else away. The characters don't act *in* character, except maybe for McCoy. Kirk is a spoiled child. The sets were terrible - engineering should look like a spaceship, not an oil refinery. There is just no real sense that this is Star Trek, it has a different tone and scope.

They mined WoK for plot points for *two* movies, and executed them cheaply, and the KM test was just one of them. I have become sufficiently disgusted that I avoided the latest movie and have no desire to see it or any new ones in the future.

I can't remember if he got reinstated, he was a JG anyway, so still lower than Bashir.

That was one of my problems with that show - nobody got promoted, other than Paris - demoted, changed jobs, hooked up long term, or otherwise showed any real character growth over the series run. Except maybe for the doctor. 7 of 9 had a lot of growth quickly as a plot point, but once she got where Brannon Braga wanted, all stop.

334 No longer are adults supposed to be adults, because if you had any kind of perspicacity and compassion you would think "This is a teen; Their brain isn't fully developed and they need to be needed and loved. Am I really going to get my jollies off by doing sex acts with them when they are so vulnerable when probably having that happen to me screwed the hell out of me in me young life?" I am not going to get into a debate about whether sexual orientation is innate or learned-maybe it depends on the people involved-but I have known too many gay guys who have said that as kids told me they were preyed upon by adults. And JFTR, I have the same amount of loathing for women teachers in their 20's and 30's having sex with their high school male students-or female for that matter. Narcissists destroy so many people-which is what it is, in large part when you use people simply for your own satisfaction and cease to think of them as individuals you need to cherish and love. Yes, that is a spiritual problem

And Milo himself is more of a so-con than most GOPers---very much against 3rd-wave feminism, quite pro-life, and deeply respectful of orthodox Christianity.

In any case, I'm not aware of a cabal of so-cons and leftists "working together" to bring him down.

360 Milo basically revealed the same sort of gay goings on, since he experienced it as a youth, and was reviled for it as he seems to endorse the adult-minor practice. But Breitbart still has a soft spot in their hearts for him, and give him favorable press.

I've never had paid for sex, unless a movie and dinner counts. It's left me with lots more beer money though. This doesn't mean, however, that I've led a sheltered life. I've talked to a number of hos and even inquired a time or three what the going rate is. Curiosity, not a serious contemplation.

382 Thoughtful Article

Teen-Adult Sex: What Every Parent Should Know

It's by Chad Felix Greene, a gay conservative who is quite open about his own teenage experiences hooking up with adult men. Not a pleasant read, but an important one.


Many years ago I had a learning experience that shattered my previously PC view of gay sexuality:

I once had a book published by a big publishing house, and the editor there who guided it from manuscript to finished book eventually became a friend of mine -- not a super-close friend, but a "good friend"-level friend. H was a gay guy, around 40 years old, who was very artistic and "sensitive" and mousy. He only like classical music -- hated rock, pop and jazz -- ballet, opera and gregorian chants. He was also single, sad and lonely because he had a weird romantic preference for aristocratic old men -- he drooled over Alastair Cooke -- but there were no aristocratic old gay men where he lived, so he was always alone.

I thought he was a rare breed: An asexual, celibate gay man. He always bemoaned being isolated and lonely and without relationships.

But then one day he DID meet an older aristocratic gay man, and for a few months they were boyfriend-and-boyfriend.

But it didn't last long. One day we had lunch, and he cried and told me that his new boyfriend had become unreasonable and that they had broken up. I asked in what way he had become unreasonable. The reply?

"He said that if we were going to remain together as a couple, then he insisted that I stop going to bathhouses. That's an absurd demand!"

I admit that I was left speechless for a moment. Wait, what? You go to bathhouses? You???

He then revealed that OF COURSE he goes to bathhouses several times a week, that he had always had done so -- that's a given, and automatic with most gay men. All that stuff about being lonely and celibate -- he was referring to being lonely and celibate when it comes to emotion-based romantic relationships. OF COURSE he needed to get his rocks off and drain his balls five or ten times a week in anonymous sexual encounters with strangers. But that didn't "count." That was just biological.

This friend of mine up until that point had been a sort of iconic stereotype in my mind: See, not all gay men have frequent anonymous sex. Some can be delicate, sensitive romantic near-virgins.

Ooops. Stereotype shattered.

All I was left with after that was the standard stereotype. Oh well. I guess stereotypes evolve for a reason.

Socons seemed to like Milo. He said he was warmly welcomed in the South. He did an interview with one of the Duck Dynasty guys and was respectful of the man's beliefs and got respect in return. He is not a proponent of gay marriage and backed the rights of Christians to refuse to bake cakes for gay weddings.

It wasn't the Socons who brought him down, it was GOPe types who hated his support for Trump. Once again ,they were happy to ally themselves with leftists to bring down a threat to their Establishment.

I was once friends with a gay man like the one you described. A shy retiring man who loved books and art and stuck me as extremely cultured. I worked in his bookstore occasionally. I felt bad for him. He seemed lonely.

One day, I overheard him chatting about going to Union Station to have sex with guys in the men's room there and also about the "P street beach" in DC, a notorious gay pickup spot He and his gay friend were bragging about how often they had sex in those spots during the past month - dozens of times. Then he noticed I was standing there and gave a panicked "Shut up" look to his friend.

It really wrecked the image I had had of him.

386 I grew up in the suburbs in the 70s and as a teen was ultra naive. Got a job as a cashier through a buddy's family at a grocery store close to downtown. The shit that I saw when we went out to retrieve stolen carts floored me. I didn't know it before taking the job but where this store was located was was a gay hotspot in the city. I was young 17 and saw way younger boys essentially hooking in the neighborhood. Now I'm not John Kerry but that shit was seared into my memory.

391 If a pound of dollars is worth approx. $450, then to carry the same dollar amount in kwacha you would need to lug around about 5000 pounds of kwacha. That is assuming that a kwacha weighs approx. 1 gram also. Don't do bank robbery in Zambia. Malawi kwacha is a much better bet, but it would still be, literally, a ton of work carrying the money away.

402 to do the apple sauce and/or mustard paste like i brainstormed/farted last night, i'd do what i do with horseradish for my prime rib paste: dump an amount of the moisture rich material into a fine mesh strainer, over a larger bowl, then bounce the contents over it, causing the excess liquid to remove itself.

then take the drained solid material and mix in the other ingredients, then apply finished product to the meat in question. i've never reserved the horseradish liquid in the past, but that oversight will be corrected going forward.

as for misting the meat with cider, what have you, there's two schools of thought on that, and some debate as to it's efficacy.

for one thing, you have to open the cooking chamber to do it, and, as they say "if you're lookin' you ain't cookin'..." every time you do that, you deviate from your desired cook temp, and a stable temp for long periods is a BIG help to turning out good Q. it's the long, slow, steady temp progression that causes the meat to self-tenderize, especially with brisket.

the best thing about experimenting with Q is that, unless you REALLY screw up, disposing of the test materials is fun. just take copious notes: relying on memories isn't reliable.

Open Thread (with Lots of Content) & GAINZZZ Thread

I figure the thing that's best here is the Making of Red Dawn (the original) featurette, also embedded below, but linked here in case you can't see it below.

Other stuff:

She seems nice.

In Australia, there's a controversy over the Australian Football League putting out a statement that it, as a corporation, supports same sex marriage. The question is, as it is here: Who the hell are these people to tell ticket-buying fans what they ought to think about a political issue?

Shock: CNN is barely covering the Menendez trial on the actual channel (though there is some scattered coverage on its doesn't-even-matter website), and the networks have almost entirely suppressed the story.

Why aren't the media and other leftist propaganda organs actually covering Valerie Plame's antisemitism? They covered the shit out of, say, Steve Bannon's alleged antisemitism, but for some reason have decided that the proven and longstanding antisemitism of a former CIA officer making decisions about Middle East policy, and influencing US opinion, just aren't worth much exploration, for some reason.

Here's the second-most obvious answer, apart from simple tribal allegiance and partisan bias: Because antisemitism has been thoroughly mainstreamed on the political left, far more that it has been on the right.

Go figure: Leftists decree that having a child is the worst possible decision you could make, both for yourself and The Planet.

Amusingly, here's the related story this bullshit site suggests you might also be interested in:


More: Why Greece needs to start having babies again soon or face financial oblivion

But ignore that. For the Anti-Human Left, the Human Voluntary Self-Extinction Project outweighs all other concerns.

They really are Agent Smith -- they really do want an end to the human race.

I meant to link this earlier, but John Sexton has written it up for us: Leaked emails show the full madness at Evergreen State College, with lots of professors complaining they are being threatened, harassed, and stalked by "Social Justice" Warriors. All of whom were permitted to take over the campus, vigilante style, by the administration, with cops ordered to stand down.

And then crazed lunatics had a free hand to impose their own weird "justice" on the Filthy Normals.

Oh, and speaking of college madness, you might enjoy Hilary Clinton Absolver James Comey being disrupted at a (planned) college address for 16 minutes.

Oh, and Jimmy Kimmel, who cheerled John McCain in his latest betrayal and lies, of course got coached up on his Obamacare talking points by Chuck Schumer.

Below, that Red Dawn making-of featurette, and then a short GAINZZZ entry.


What Have You Done to Make the World a GAINZZZier Place Today?

On my front, I've been getting wiped out by too few rest days. Plus, trying to run a low-carb caloric deficit (I think; I don't count calories) while doing so.

So I've started eating more, and eating some carbs, hoping that I'll at least have the energy to do the workouts I'm trying to do.

I don't know if that'll work. I should start taking more Glutamine (which supposedly aids recovery), but I haven't started that yet.

On the GAINZZZ front, eating more, and eating more carbs, has resulted in... well, I do have lifting GAINZZZ, but I'm also putting on fat-weight too. Not a lot, but I'm not seeing any LOZEZZZ.

I've repeatedly read (or heard) it's impossible to try to both gain and lose weight at the same time -- which I realize looks pretty obvious -- and that you have to choose one or the other, and I think I'm finding out that's about right.

I might have to try something like "eat more six days a week, but then fast one day." That's what I'm doing today.

Coincidentally -- I forgot about this guy until today -- this guy suggests doing something like that, which he calls the "Snake Diet" (because you eat a lot, then you don't eat for days) and recommends drinking an electrolyte-rich drink he calls "Snake Juice." Basically, he suggests One Meal a Day plus the weekly 48 hour fast, or some fuckin' shit like that.

He begins every video with the greeting, "HEY FATTIE!," I guess as a motivational tool, which.. well, it kinda works, I guess. Starting off a video "HEY FATTIE!!!" really doesn't sugar-coat it much.

Now, to be honest, I'm not sure that I trust this guy's advice -- though I've done a lot of the stuff he suggests -- but I do find him amusing:

I found this guy when I was searching for the right proportions of electrolytes to water, after my own bouts of deydration.

i'm not endorsing this at all. Just saying, hey, he's... well, he's different, that's for sure.

If you want to know his recipe for an electroylte-replenishing concoction, well then, HEY FATTIE!!!, here's his fuckin' recipe for Snake Fuckin' Juice.

Here's a fuckin' testimonial by a FATTIE who failed his FUCKIN' SNAKE DIET because her fuckin' hormones were ALL FUCKED UP AND SHIT!!!

If you want to yelled at some fuckin' more, here:

By the way, I really, really, really would caution anyone from following his advice on dry fasting -- that is, fasting and also not drinking water.

You need more water when you fast, not less.

I like the idea of his Only Eat Bacon For 30 Days Challenge (and only eat it in that one meal a day 2 hour eating window), and I might try a bacon and eggs only sort of one meal a day challenge, but not dry, as he suggests.

I collapsed from dehydration, and had bad dehydration effects (averted from drinking a lot of water) another time. I'd really go nowhere near the dry fast.

27 Oh cool, I've been saving some gainzz advice for a gainzz thread where ace hadn't almost killed himself lately.

There are two insights that came together for this.

1) I now weigh myself first thing upon waking and evacuating, as I find that I lose about 3 pounds in my sleep. So, sleep is good for weight loss.

B) I was fishing in the tailwater of a bottom-release dam recently. If water spills over the top of a dam it's warmed by the sun and is only good for growing useless fish like bass and crappie. It it's bottom release, you get consistent cold clear trout water year-round.

Yay.

So I was standing in my nice cold trout water until I was tying knots by sight and memory because I couldn't feel my fingers any more and it hit me:

Calories are by definition a measure of heat. So, exposure to icy trout water must consume calories as it sucks out heat.

Ergo: Ace should sleep in a sensory-deprivation ice-water bath.

Massive gainzz and the risk of near death experiences. What could be more ewokian?

50 Or here's a bit of wisdom from Dr. John Beradi, 'Precision Nutrition'....


'I know, everyone wants to talk about the food itself
- the proteins, carbs, and fats. What to eat more of and what to avoid.

But research is now showing that simply paying better attention to what you eat is a key factor in whether you'll lose fat, get lean, and improve your health.

Whether your attention is trained on avoiding carbs, eating more vegetables, seeking out organic / free-range food, avoiding animal foods, or avoiding "non Paleo" food, it's all good.

Because what you focus on may not matter as much as simply caring more about what you're eating in the first place."

67 Ok thsi may be something. I'm on keto Mostly I eat chicken thighs for dinner with olive oil, eggs with cheese and butter, Cawfee with a mix of heavy cream and 1/2 1/2, cheese, carb would be Melba toast which I love. Walnuts and almonds, the occasional protein shake if I'm lazy for breakfast. No fruit or veggies because plants are people too you monsters.

that's pretty much it. I'm not super hungry. lost ten + pounds. No real exercise hard cause I tore my rotator cuff. I would like to lose more but stuck.

One thing to make it easy. I throw a family pack of thighs skin on in the electric pressure cooker with two cups of water. 15 minutes. tender.

Bonus: I beat a half dozen eggs and pour them into the hot broth and scramble with a fork. Instant eggs drop soup. I eat that for lunch for a few days. Delish.

Right now the plan is Monday and Thursday is bench and rows, Tuesday and Friday are squats and overhead presses, and Wednesday is for deadlifts and intervals on the tredmill. Also, I can go on Thursday nights to an evening swing dancing class, and on Wednesday nights to tango classes.

96 The Ponzi scheme depends on more people at the bottom paying in to funnel to people at the top. The problem is the more that base gets squeezed it becomes less financially feasible for them to add to that base through reproduction. Also, as the government continues to strangle the economy, those people at the base don't have anything to pay up to the people at the top, and in fact start having to drain some off from the people at the top. At that point your pyramid is falling apart.

Except that's really not true. All diets are not equal.

The reality is, if you are depriving yourself of SOMETHING, it's not sustainable. You WILL bounce back from it.

The ONLY reasonable diet is moderation and variety. Don't pig out, don't eat crap, and don't follow idiot faddish ideas that are bad for you.

It astonishes me how complicated people make this. It's not complicated. Feed your body the nutrients it needs. And knock off buying shit from snake oil salesmen.

I did a 14 day ab challenge which included a 24 minute HIIT workout in conjunction with a proprietary "Ab Blaster" workout that you did every day Mon-Fri, then just a run, walk or whatever workout you usually do on the weekend. I still ran on some of the weekdays because I'm training for a marathon in Oct. I didn't do any before measurements because I really didn't think you could change your body much in just 2 weeks. My main goal was to just get some core strength to help me improve my running form. I didn't even do the nutrition part because I wasn't trying to los weight. Well, I lost 4 lbs. and inches everywhere! Lost my little muffin too and my love handles, and my stomach is flat! I did my last long run last Saturday. I maintained not only my form but my foot turnover on a 23.1 mile run! (Which I ran at an average pace of 8:59 minutes/mike. These HITT workouts are legit! It was not a PR for me on that course (but I'm years older than when I ran my fastest time there). It was the best I felt ever doing that run, and I felt fine the next day. (Apple cider vinegar helps too). I smoked hubby (which is always fun, AND I felt great! I'm a believer in HIIT now! I believe!

143 The ONLY reasonable diet is moderation and variety. Don't pig out, don't eat crap, and don't follow idiot faddish ideas that are bad for you.

It astonishes me how complicated people make this. It's not complicated. Feed your body the nutrients it needs. And knock off buying shit from snake oil salesmen.
Posted by: BurtTC at September 22, 2017 08:38 PM (Pz4pT)


There's a huge genetic factor in what kind of diet is best for individuals . . .

My wife is of (largely) southern European heritage; she can eat carbs all day long and not gain weight.

If I (mainly northern European) would eat the way she eats, I would guraranteed gain weight . . . LOTS of weight. I can't tolerate too many carbs. She can.

All diets are not equal, because all people are not equal.

Advocating moderation without recognizing the individual, genetic element is, to be blunt, an evil, cruel lie.

Find out what your body reacts to, positively and negatively, and eat accordingly.

There isn't One True Diet That All Should Follow. More's the pity.

A proper forge has a bellows that can easily be operated by the same person that is doing the metal work. The trick is the bellows does not need to be in continuous operation, just a few pulls on the bellows fires up the coals then you work the metal for a few minutes, repeat!

No, it's not. It really isn't. There may be some minor variation, but generally people all need the same nutrients, and do NOT need the crap that everyone knows is crap.

The truth is, nobody really knows what anyone else eats. We think there are people who can eat all the [fill in the blank] they want, and be healthy as a horse.

They don't eat as much as people think they do.

Anybody consuming 3000 calories a day (assuming they are not world class athletes), with a large percentage of them being carbs, is going to be big as a house.

This was about the time we joined the Y. I mostly walked on the treadmill until one of the instructors there suggested that light exercise on the machines that work the arms and shoulders might help.


I decided to give it a try as I did not want surgery. For about the first month or so, I couldn't even grab the grips. By spring, I was using the equipment like a normal person and putting on my own coat. You'd be surprised how good it feels to be able to put on your own dang coat.

I thought we were talking about "moderation."

"Moderation" varies widely depending on genetics. Carb tolerance varies widely depending on genetics (and to some extent on previous life history).

"Moderation" means wildly different things to different people. Some people can tolerate 200 g carbs, some 20. What level of carb consumption then is "moderate"? Answer: It depends on the individual.

"Moderation" is only helpful around the edges in weight loss and healthy eating. It isn't a sliver bullet.

There ARE no silver bullets.

I'm very carb-sensitive myself. I've tried the thing of upping carbs to see what my no-weight-gain level is. Turns out it's about... the 20g you do in Atkins induction. Maybe a little more. But not much.

219 I'd plateaued last year while dieting, and decided to try a low-carb mono diet of my own imagination.

Just ate nuts (raw almonds, raw macadamia nuts, raw pumpkin seeds, roasted/salted sunflower seeds, and roasted/salted peanuts) twice/day -- about 700 calories X twice/day = 1400 calories/day) over a 5-day period.

Drank unlimited water and still lost 5 pounds. Sure got sick of nuts though ...

I thought we were talking about "moderation."

"Moderation" varies widely depending on genetics. Carb tolerance varies widely depending on genetics (and to some extent on previous life history).

"Moderation" means wildly different things to different people. Some people can tolerate 200 g carbs, some 20. What level of carb consumption then is "moderate"? Answer: It depends on the individual.

"Moderation" is only helpful around the edges in weight loss and healthy eating. It isn't a sliver bullet.

There ARE no silver bullets.
Posted by: filbert at September 22, 2017 09:01 PM (s5o+q)


Right. I read "eats carbs all day" as something other than moderation.

Someone who likes bread and pasta and whatnot, that's fine, and yes, genetics might be a factor in how MUCH one can reasonably consume and call it moderation, but the person who eats carbs "all day" is not practicing moderation.

Nope (in part).

There are studies showing that increasing exercise doesn't necessarily result in weight loss . . . in fact in certain individuals it will result in an increase in caloric consumption.

But yes, the only long-term way is to (after finding out what you can and can't tolerate, food-wise) to re-build your life habits to conform to what your body can tolerate.

This is an incredibly hard thing to actually do.

There are essential fatty acids and amino acids, which means fat and protein (that contain those constituents) are required.

There is no such thing as essential carbs. You can live off fat and protein (but not too much of the latter). You'll go into ketosis, of course, but you can live without any carbs.

Now, plants have fats and proteins into them as well, of course, but you've got to get the essential fatty acids and amino acids.

And that's where "balance" comes in. The proteins and fats in some foods don't have all the essential ones in them.

290 >>>Well, I have to admit that if I'm suffering hunger pangs I'm going to have difficulty sleeping which may have an effect on my job performance. I haven't tried to stretch a weekday fast beyond that for obvious reasons. Sleep is imperative in my situation.

i hear ya, but the pangs do pass. Right now (at about hour 24 of a fast) I'm hungry from time to time. In my experience it does not interfere with sleep, though.

What I found was that I had gotten used to using late night eating as a way to help fall asleep (cheese tended to make me sleepy), and stopping that habit did make me have trouble sleeping, just because i'd made it a habit.

But once that habit was kicked, fasting didn't interfere with sleep.

Even thin people are carrying 30,000 spare calories on their frames. Fat people are carrying 100,000 or 200,000. Very fat people carry 500,000.

It's not like people do not have the energy stored on their bodies. And the body will start burning it, eventually.

Tom Brady is getting criticized over his remarks about water intake.

I am living proof that it's okay to drink less than 50 ounces of water a day.

I used to drink lots of water because I was told to do it. All it did was make me pee. I would drink 16 ounces of water, and a half hour later I'd pee 16 ounces of pee.

My body was telling me I was hydrated enough already.

326 >>>
The fast plan I heard our friend Kimmel used to lose his weight allowed for up to 500 calories consumed on the fast days. I forgot the plan name. Heard him a awhile back on Stern.

a lot of plans are like that. This is called the "fasting-simulating diet." The idea is that if you have a low enough number of calories on "fasting" days, 600 for men, 500 for women, you're effectively fasting (though not actually fasting).

many of the fasting plans -- like Fast Five (fast for five days), 5:2 (eat for five days, fast for 2) or alternate day fasting permit that kind of low level of calorie intake on "fasting" days.

i've done that sort of thing as well as genuine fasts. Some will find that, as Lewis Sinclair said, eating small amounts of food will stimulate the appetite rather than satisfying it, so that the real honest fast turns out easier.

For me it's six of one half a dozen of the other. I do think that maybe the Bone Broth fast is a good idea, just to make sure you're getting some electrolytes in your body (which you shed when you fast or lose weight due to any means).

Weigh-in on Monday will show him down a pound and me up two. When we started our healthy-us plan, he was in the 200's. He'll probably break into the 170's this week. I'm so proud of him that I would like to kill him. Because I'm going nowhere fast.

It's following Rippetoe's methods. I'm on my 3rd week after going for a couple of months of fasting 2-3 days, eating 2-3 days repeat. Low carb for me for the last year or two. I'm at about 10% body fat and having a bit of a hard time without eating more. I feel I am incredibly weak, but my trainer disagrees. My dead lifts are about my body weight. I am buying a power Rack, bar and weights tomorrow so I can do more between training sessions. So far so good I guess.

...

older doctors still believe this, younger doctors do not.

what many of you keep pushing forward as "the settled science" is in a period of rapid rejection by the medical community. If your doctor is 60 or older, he still probably pushes this snake oil. If he's 45 or younger, he probably doesn't.

a lot of people think the stuff I talk about is weird. But I have younger doctors, one who is explicitly keto/paleo and one who isn't explicit about that, but he seems cool with my choices.

The things some people think are "radical new ideas" are in fact rapidly becoming the mainstream, bog-standard sort of advice.

There has been a longstanding debate on this since the mid 2000s, and the Calories In Calories Out model is losing, and in fact is coming to the point where we can say "has lost."

I'm in rural America where nobody has anything to do so they still have kids, but meh. What am I gonna do, have some kid and try to teach it to fish, or share great art with him, when all he wants to do is play Minecraft or some other nonsense kids waste their time on these days?

It's like saying that a given car will always get the same mileage if driven the same way, and that all cars that are roughly comparable and capable of the same or even similar mileage will get the same mileage driven the same way on the same drive.

Anyone who knows the first thing about automobiles will recognize this as horseshit, and that's without autos being as able to regulate their own usage of fuels and power output as the human body. Hell, a car has to stay close to a really tight lambda per amount of air ingested to even run, and that amount of air ingested is pretty damn similar on a similar drive driven similarly. But no. Simply not the case.

Now assume that the fuel system can run on gas, kerosene, whiskey, thinner, leaded avgas, coconut oil, even butter. Joules are are joules out, right?

Well, no. That assumption assumes that the hypothetical car, or rather, human body is actually magic. That is a very dumb assumption.

How much of the "calories in" is being excreted unused rather than being digested and used by the body?

Go take your "lack of willpower" and stick it. "Willpower" has very little to do with obesity, because the hormonal urges will easily overpower someone's will. Trust me. I've felt it happen to me. It is (from what I hear) almost EXACTLY like the compulsion of an addiction. You really, truly can't help yourself from having another handful of chips. It's horrifying while it's happening to you but you really can't stop yourself. The only effective way to really avoid it is not to start in the first place.

Right, right, right. And if your carbueretor is faulty, and doesn't burn gasoline properly, then that car will, per the law of thermodyamics, pump out the same amount of energy as a well-functioning engine? Right...?

You don't know anything. When someone eats, the body can use that energy for three things: Moving the body around, *slightly increasing core body temperature* (which really burns up a lot of energy-- maintaining basic core body functions uses 10x as much energy as even a hard workout), or storing it as fat.

What does the Law of Thermodynamics dictate that a body do with the energy, bub?

Oh that's right -- it doesn't say a damn thing about it. Whether you fritter away calories with fidgeting and puttering, or your body just gooses your core temperature by 0.1 degree F, or if it puts it all into fat -- the Law of Thermodynamics is followed.

But the first two will result in maintaing the same weight, and the last will result in weight gain.

And which the body does is not dictated by the law of thermodynamics but one's hormonal response to food.

People who are ignorant like to simplify things down to their low level of understanding.

Read a fucking book for God's sake.

439 What I'm doing for Gainz: I just got back from my
starting strength trainer. I'm older (55) so I'm using "The Barbell
Prescription" for my guide at the suggestion of my trainer. It's
following Rippetoe's methods. I'm on my 3rd week after going for a
couple of months of fasting 2-3 days, eating 2-3 days repeat. Low carb
for me for the last year or two. I'm at about 10% body fat and having a
bit of a hard time without eating more. I feel I am incredibly weak,
but my trainer disagrees. My dead lifts are about my body weight. I am
buying a power Rack, bar and weights tomorrow so I can do more between
training sessions. So far so good I guess.

If the energy consumed by the body exceeds the energy introduced over a long period of time you will lose weight.

You're focusing on short term effects, I'm talking long-term. As long as your body is healthy, it cannot keep storing energy while maintaining an energy deficit. Homeostasis won't allow you to drop your core temperature 5 degrees over a year in favor of consuming fat reserves.

441 If it was as simple as CICO, why does that change over time? When I was 19, it was physically impossible to get fat no matter how much I ate or how little or how much I exercised. Now, not so much. Just quitting smoking slowed my metabolism down noticeably and caused a commiserate weight gain.

A five degree body temperature drop? You mean -- like death?!

yeah I tried something like that, drinking a liter of very cold water (like out of the freezer, almost frozen) to help force the core temperature burning factor up, but it's such a pain in the ass. And you actually feel the drain from having to expend energy to heat your core.

right so if your body pumps out too much insulin in response to blood glucose after eating, and pushes that glucose right into fat and also reduces your available energy (by pushing too much glucose out of the blood, and therefore making you feel tired), what does the LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS say will happen to your bodyfat percentage? Given that you're immediately pushing otherwise-usable energy into fat cells, and reducing your capacity for expending energy through movement?

I'm sure you know that a calorie is a unit of energy, most commonly used in dietary things. What are commonly called "calories" is in fact the kilocalorie, which is defined as the energy required to raise the temperature of 1 kilgram of water by one degree Celsius (at one standard atmosphere pressure).

454 on that cold thing, just drinking cold water requires the body to burn calories to warm it up.

I used to do a thing called 'tempering'. I was overseas on a warehouse job. Bone-chilling, damp cold. At the end of my shower, I would turn off the hot water and stay under as long as I could take it. (These guys had some seriously cold water!) Thirty seconds may have been my record.

Anywho, for the next six hours or so, I was warm as could be. Metabolism was thru the roof. A fascinating technique that I don't ever want to have to do again.

455 I don't do the cold thing all the time, but often carry a 1.5 liter bottle that I freeze half way, laying the bottle at an angle. That makes it cold for quite a while. I've never noticed the energy drain, but I spread it out over a couple hours.

I remember reading something about "cold stress". In modern First World countries, we're getting pussified with the climate control.

And it was about how doing "cold stress", getting out in cold weather and making your body do more work to maintain temperature was a good thing, and could help shift things back to the fat burning side.

Then there was something about "whole body cryotherapy", which is exposing the body to extremely cold air ( -100C) for a couple minutes.

That has other uses, but I remember something about weight loss studies with it.

467 I guess if one could measure every process in the body, examine all the pee/poop/sweat, examine every exhaled breath, kept a record of total body temps and external temps, work done (resting and active), measured body fat ... one could maybe work out how all the energy was conserved
(i.e. calories in = calories out).

But it seems clear the body can do different things with the inputs, and it is possible to manage that to some degree. And each body is probably predisposed to some different responses. The ketogenic diet thing sounds interesting ... certainly one approach.

Obama's "Dear Colleague" Demand for No-Due-Process Rape Courts Rescinded

Big news. Expected, but big.

"This interim guidance will help schools as they work to combat sexual misconduct and will treat all students fairly," DeVos said. "Schools must continue to confront these horrific crimes and behaviors head-on. There will be no more sweeping them under the rug. But the process also must be fair and impartial, giving everyone more confidence in its outcomes."

Here's a bit that I've only seen Duke Lacrosse Rape case debunker KC Johnson highlight --


If you can't read it, it says that the standards/procedure used in these Title IX courts must be the same for adjudging other offenses. So universities can't run sexual assault hearings with any less procedural safe guards than those employed in other contexts.

Related, in a way:


An illegal immigrant is accused of raping a six year old girl.

Now, answer this for me:

If it's okay to use hearings which lack due process, review of the evidence, provision of a lawyer, etc., to expel students from college on sexual assault colleges, why can we not similarly dispense with due process rights when seeking to eject accused-but-not-yet-convicted illegal aliens from the US?

If the former passes constitutional muster, then so does the second. (Federally subsidized schools must respect rights to the same extent as the government -- and if they don't have to respect rights, then, ipso facto, neither does the government.)

And if its required to drop evidentiary standards down to near-zero to protect alleged victims in college, why is not necessary to do the same to protect the population generally?

Why do we have to wait for a full court/full due process conviction to eject an accused alien illegally present in the US, when it is now the left's insistence that no such procedural safeguards are needed to throw a US citizen out of a college?

BTW: The below post is fun so it's officially Still A Thing, if you want.

So the question then becomes at what point does someone get expelled for raping a fellow student.

144 Schools are going to reduce tuition since they no longer need to pay admin to train, attend training, oversee training, monitor badthink, investigate rape-rape, kick students out of school for being accused of rape by batsh*t crazy people they don't know but who want to date them, etc., right?



Yes, instead of raising tuition 20% next year, they are only going to raise it 18%. See, a 2% reduction!

Not for those reasons, but I think some schools will reduce tuition. I read the other day that Birmingham Southern, a private, formerly all female, prep-type school is cutting tuition in half. To pay for the cut, they're basically eliminating all tuition assistance.

is founder and CEO of Champion Women, which provides legal advocacy for
women and girls in sports.


She said there's no way to build a system that's perfect, but evidence
doesn't show there's a trend of universities simply assuming accused men
are guilty.
Under the federal law, Hogshead-Makar said, schools
have an obligation to do something when an issue isbrought to their
attention.

"The next question is what would you expect them to do? They have to stop the harassment," Hogshead-Makar said. "

If I deport illegals before trial, then They'll never be a trial, & they'll never be convicted.

In effect, then,unless I misunderstand you, I suggest that a rapist who is a U.S. citizen (or LAPR) should go to prison, but an illegal alien rapist should just be deported only.

On real life, the illegal alien rapist gets prosecuted for rape; serves time; and THEN gets deported.

172 Mrs. Old Blue and I stayed at the Virgin River Casino in Mesquite on a trip to Vegas one year. I was bored and started checking all the drawers in the room. I came across a metal tin about 3 inches by 6 inches with the Raiders logo on it. It went in the trash. Inside there was a really cheap roach clip and about two grams of pot. That went into the trash with the Raiders tin. There was also a women's sex toy (at least I think it was for a woman) in a baggie, and that went into the trash as well. Then only thing I kept was this really nice silver, turquoise and coral lighter case for Bic lighters. I still have it. Now whenever I stay in a hotel or motel, I always check the drawers to see if anyone left something behind.

176 33 How about a "dear colleague" letter to K-12 public schools about all these freakin' female teachers preying on their students (yet another one mentioned on Insty this afternoon). Per a study Christopher Taylor linked to yesterday, there have been 100-200x *more* cases than in the Catholic church.

Please explain why a legal adult female off at college's consent is more precious than a 12 year old boy's or girl's being hit on and/or pressured into sex with their teacher.
Posted by: Lizzy at September 22, 2017 07:05 PM (W+vEI)


Because you can prove the rape of a 12 year old, and the criminal justice system is handling it, more or less.

The mere acts, consensual or not, are proof of (statutory) rape.

A lot of these college campus rape accusations are less than totally forced or coerced, or reported a few days (or weeks) later for whatever reason, and thus there is little or no supporting evidence for the accusation. It becomes he said/she said and he walks.

That's where all the "consent" and alcohol rules came from - that way they could run him out for taking advantage of a girl who was impaired, no matter how drunk he was.

224 There was a poster from awhile back that served as a clear example that the inmates are running the asylum.

"He was drunk" "She was drunk" "They had sex"...
"He committed rape"

The woman supposedly can't consent, but at the same time the man's consent is considered implicit, and so he is the only one held responsible for their actions. The existence of men itself becomes violence to women.

They'll freely admit now that due process is nothing but an annoyance to them. The 5th amendment stands in the way of "social justice" witch hunting and so the self-professed liberals work tirelessly to eliminate yet another liberty guaranteed to Americans.

We've been provided with but a brief reprieve from some of these antics. The next time a Democrat is elected President, I wouldn't be shocked if they declared the Constitution to be alt right propaganda, marched over to the National Archives and burned the whole thing to the ground.

Mel Brooks: "Stupid Political Correctness" Has Killed Comedy

As many of you have pointed out, Blazing Saddles could not be made today.

Brooks agrees.

Asked if any of his films could get made today, Brooks replied, "No, no. I mean maybe Young Frankenstein and maybe a few but never Blazing Saddles because we have become stupidly politically correct, which is the death of comedy." He continued, "It's okay not to hurt feelings of various tribes and groups; however, itís not good for comedy.


"Comedy has to walk a thin line, take risks. Comedy is the lecherous little elf whispering into the king's ear, always telling the truth, always telling the truth about human behavior.Ē

BTW, Brooks' humor was rarely "racist" or antisemitic itself. But he often featured characters making racist statements. These characters' beliefs were pretty much refuted by the movie itself; for example, the black sheriff in Blazing Saddles was much smarter and craftier than the "morons" who called him racial slurs.

But Social Justice Warriors ignore nuances like that -- is it even right to call that a "nuance"? it's the obvious main point of the movie -- and take the ineffably stupid position that any word or statement they don't like, even if the context of it is intended to undermine or refute that statement, is forbidden.

One recent example of this was the Social Justice Warrior outrage over the movie Passengers. Which I did end up watching -- it was okay. Not very good. Nice looking sets of a spaceship and some good scenes, but overall, slow in the beginning, and then rushed at the end.

The plot was this: Chris Pratt is in cryosleep on a colonly ship to another world. The trip is 120 years long -- the ship only (only!) travels at half the speed of light. But his cryopod malfunctions and he's woken up after only 30 years -- with 90 years to spend on a ship in which literally not another human being is awake.

Including the crew, which... well, this isn't very realistic, but the crew is all in cryosleep too, with the computer running everything for the whole journey, which makes you wonder: Why even bother sending along a crew? You'd think if you sent them along, you'd at least wake up a few of them every six months or so to make sure the ship hasn't been hit by a meteor and undergoing a catastrophic cascade failure. (Which is exactly what's happened.)

Anyway, after a year of being totally alone, and facing the prospect of living out the rest of his life alone, and after having (Spoiler alert) attempted suicide before chickening out last minute, he makes the selfish -- but desperate -- decision to wake up a fellow passenger, and the lie to her, telling her that her cryopod also suffered a random mechanical failure.

The Social Justice Warriors attacked the film for Pratt's selfish decision to trap a woman in his same predicament, just because he wanted companionship (including romantic/sexual companionship - he'd spent a lot of days watching her various video interviews, falling in love with her).

But here's the thing: The film knows that was a horrible, selfish decision. Chris Prat's character knows it was a horrible, selfish decision, and says so, and lives with the guilt of it every day.

The main dramatic conflict in the movie is all about his horrible, selfish decision, and what the hell this woman is going to do when she finds out he actually condemned her to live and die alone on a ship just because he was lonely.

The movie offers the same critique as the Social Justice Warriors -- this desperate man did a terrible and selfish thing to a woman to alleviate his own suffering.

Yet the Social Justice Warriors acted as if portraying bad decisions, and the consequences of those decisions (both to the woman he woke up, and himself) is the same as endorsing those decisions.

You can't really read that in the film. Yet they did anyway.

The did the same thing to the movie Knocked Up, criticizing the male character's immaturity and failure to "man up" and help the woman he impregnated -- ignoring the fact that the film itself has a critical stance toward's Seth Rogen's character, and the whole dramatic thrust of the film is about him giving up his selfish, manchild ways to become a real man, capable of supporting a wife (emotionally mostly -- she makes more money than him, but he at least now has an income) and raising a child.

Oh, and of course Ms. Magazine whined that Wonder Woman wasn't fat with a "real body." Despite the fact that Gal Gadot's body obviously is "real," and despite the fact that the character, according to the movie, trained to be a warrior -- you know, an athlete of death -- "ten times" harder than any other Amazon since age 8.

So.... yeah. I'm not seeing the likelihood of such a person carrying around an extra 80 or 100 pounds.

And:

When it was announced that Gadot would play Wonder Woman, audiences went wild body shaming her for not having large enough breasts....

Especially with the body positivity movement gaining steam, the film could have spotlighted female warriors with fat, thick and short body types. While people have said that warriors canít be fat, some of our best paid male athletes are, particularly linebackers on the football field, and no one doubts their physical strength.

So it's "body shaming" to say she doesn't have enough fat mass in her breasts, but it's Social Justice Warrior dogma that she should have more fat mass in her belly and thighs.

Very nuanced take. (BTW, her breasts were fine.)

So yes, the Social Justice Warriors would freak out about a Blazing Saddles where characters use racial jibes and play stupid about the film's overall message. They stupidly outrage about things daily because it give them power -- and an income. Most of them are paid by media companies or political agitation groups to freak out whenever possible.

They get attention and money to play stupider than they really are -- and they're already plenty stupid for real.

43 To me, the real shock of my life has been watching the left and right totally reverse positions culturally. The right used to be the prudish killjoys (viewed by popular culture mind you) and the left the joyous libertines just wanting to have fun and smile. Braless cute hippie chicks putting flowers in guns of dour soldiers. Angry women marching to stop wicked movies and art displays. Preachers condemning sinful behavior contrasted with loving couples.

Its all turned around in the last ten years, a total swap. Now the right is hilarity and joy with memes and giggling at the left, celebrating life. The left is rioting and screaming and telling everyone they are sinning. The left preaches as the right smiles.

Its so strange...

There have been a lot of "remakes" and "reboots" of older movies, and the reason was to sanitize them and make them more socially coherent with the present.
And then they go out of style again soon, because the timeless qualities to them were lost.

What the SJW's and their ilk want to end is anything of the common culture that exists to bind us together, both in the present and bound us to the past. They want to dictate what culture is allowed to be, and how they define it. Revisionism.
Hence all the remakes of older movies, to redefine what was once a popular idea into some more current and PC.

I saw Blazing Saddles at the theater when it first came out. There was this black lady behind me that I thought was going to die of a heart attack, she was laughing so hard. Black people got the movie, and pretty much loved the humor.

88 Oh... Delurking for a quick Passengers rant. (spoilers and stuff).

That movie had so much potential, ruined by going for the simple Hollywood ending.

Remember the trailer that implied that Chris Prat was woken up on purpose? They had a number of scenes where someone (either him or Jennifer Laurence) would say something like "hey robot bartender guy, you are just a robot you can't feel", and every time they would cut to the bartender who would look a way or would get an almost pained look on his face. How much better would that movie have been if it had turned out that the bartender AI got lonely and woke up Chris Prat, who in turn got lonely and woke up Jennifer Laurence?

More than that, they had 3 or 4 cases at the end of the movie where it looked like Chris Prat was going to die. They should have killed him off and had the movie end with JL looking over some guy's pod and saying to herself "please don't do it. Please don't do it".

Change those 2 things and that move is awesome. As it stands, that movie was a lame, boring, chick flick in space.

Now back to lurking.

94 For a shocking view at how fast and how awful culture has gotten, listen to standup from 10 years ago. Even 5 years ago. Watch comedies from those time periods.

One of the late episodes of The IT Crowd has Douglas Reynholm getting involved with a woman that he finds out was once a man.

He breaks up with her, and the episode ends up with a full-on Rowdy Roddy Piper-style fistfight between them.

You'd never get away with ANY of that today, and that's less than a decade ago.

Yeah some of it doesn't but some does. Some of Eddie Murphy's stuff didn't age well either, but mostly because of cultural shifts. Things that resonate like his stories about kids in his youth just aren't true about kids any longer.

Scared the tar out of him, and he believed me for an amazingly long time. I could call him over to the window and say "Look! There they are again!" and he would get a look of terror on his face and go hide.

...

I don't want to body shame fat people (being one myself -- or at least recovering), but this insistence that Everyone Should Be Fat is -- well, how is different than Everyone Must Be Thin?

Or this: Trans people want you to accept they were born that way. Fine, whatever. But then they whine you won't have sex with them -- because, you're not gay.

If I'm to accept that gays and trans are both real and "born that way," should they not be compelled to also accept that STRAIGHTS are real and born that way?

They're making the case that the only real sexual orientation is gay or trans -- and straight people are basically just sexually confused gay and trans people, in the closet, because they're not daring enough to find their REAL sexuality.

Wonder Woman was fun.

...

it was very much like Captain America -- including the first half (the origin) being far more interesting and fun than the second (the villain conflict).

Though at least Wonder Woman's villain conflict wasn't mostly just a jumble of montage shots of various unrelated engagements, but mostly just a straightforward march to the villain's location.

Both movies ended with a guy named Steve taking control of an advanced kinda-german-but-mostly-mad-scientist superplane loaded up with superweapons, and having to decide whether to self sacrifice rather than let it reach its target.

Both movies also had the Mad Scientist Germans killing a roomful of loyal Germans and taking over the advanced sciences division.

Leslie Nielson was at his best when he was playing a straight character in absurd situations, when he started playing a goofball he wasn't nearly as funny.

Part of what makes Airplane so hysterical is totally lost on younger people who never saw all those straight dramatic actors known for their serious roles being so hilarious for the first time ever. And it was a spoof of the Airport movies which were huge but now pretty well forgotten.

223 One problem I had with Wonder Woman was that she was absurdly OP (Overpowered). Superman level overpowered.

At the end... she starts inventing new powers, like Superman inventing the Saran Wrap Superman Symbol Shield at the end of Superman II.

These OP characters are very limited, because they can only fight weird monsters and cosmic gods. When Wonder Woman fights Germans, she's... well she's badass, but she wipes them out so easily it's not very suspenseful.

Especially at the end when she gains a lot of Flash's superspeed.

One thing I like about Captain America is that he's badass, but not so OP that six or eight well-trained mercs or German security agents can't give him a rough time. He can fight people besides weird cosmic super-monsters and it's kind of interesting.

I don't disagree. DC has made Wonder Woman into Superman's equal in power or near it.

But the movie was at least partially about Wonder Woman discovering who and what she was. So what she could do grew as she tried more things.

I agree that Steve Rodgers Captain America is a much more relatable or 'realist' superhero. It's part of what made Cap 2 such a good spy flick.

well not me specifically. But it's a media story we see a lot, about trans people complaining straight people discriminate against them by not accepting that they're girls (or boys).

or-- even -- trans people who say they're "gay" (like that guy who says he's a girl, but is "so gay" for loving girls) and then complain lesbians won't have sex with them. Because, weirdly enough, lesbians aren't interested in penis most of the time.

Strange, I know.

243 Wonder Woman was always really powerful (except when the writers needed her to be knocked out, which was a lot back in her Golden Age days when her creator was writing it. He loved him some bondage). She didn't used to be able to fly, so she had the ridiculous invisible plane, but they added flight to the list and while she's not bulletproof, she is really tough. In the comics, she's nearly as strong as Superman but not even remotely as fast, so I'm not sure where that came from.

Wonder Woman has always been kick ass, the TV show toned her down significantly cause it was too expensive to have her that strong.

Yep.

Ironically, he's a pretty damned good singer. In High Fidelity, he steals the whole movie by being the obnoxious dorkface that deserves slow strangulation.......and then doing that Marvin Gaye cover at the end of the film.

Of course, every character in High Fidelity needed a flaming, barbed-wire-wrapped pineapple enema. Fucking awful people.

263 >>>I don't disagree. DC has made Wonder Woman into Superman's equal in power or near it.


One of Marvel's advantages over DC was that Marvel didn't have Superman or the Flash -- two OP characters, especially the former, who pushed the power level of the whole universe into unrelatable territory.

Yes, Marvel did have some OP characters like Thor and Hulk, but they weren't as OP as Superman. And they tended to be off on their own adventures, kinda only dipping into the main Marvel universe here and there.

DC of course had Batman, a good street level character, but they had to OP him as well to make him useful in battles where Superman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, and Green Lantern are all fighting.

As some say, Batman became "Bat-God."

It's increasingly untenable to claim Batman is a normal human with just extraordinary training. In fact, I think I heard that DC was hinting he might be a metahuman.

Which would kinda reboot the character, but it would begin to explain the otherwise inexplicable.

PC is the farce, funny when it's so over the top at times, like that recent pic here of the hero guy carrying a woman and child, versus the punk kid with the nose ring.

The PC kid is good comedy. Or the 57 sexes .... hilarious. Except the part where they are serious and they get people fired or injured, and turn our country into a commie third world banana republic. Other than that ... comedy of the absurd. But Saturday night live only does lame comedy trying to make Trump look like the goof, ignoring all the good PC material right in their face.

291 Yes! Zorro the Gay Blade was hilarious! And totally embargoed now, even the the Gay Guy ends up really being the hero of the movie.

and in Dead and Loving it (which is also almost a scene by scene parody of the original Dracula), out of the many funny scenes I think that the funniest, which most don't realize unless they've heard some commentary, is the one where they have to drive a stake through Lucy's heart, since she has become a vampire herself.

Mel Brooks, as Van Helsing, instructs Harker (Stephen Weber from Wings) how to do it, and then steps out of the room. The reason he steps out is that Brooks knew, as Weber did NOT know when filming this, that there was going to be a HUGE explosion of blood that was going to soak him from head to toe. It blows all over him and Weber just stands there, speechless except for "oh my god." You hear Brooks saying "she's not dead yet, hit her again, so he does, and the 2nd explosion is even bigger than the first. The disgust you hear from Weber is authentic. Then Brooks says (from off screen) "I think you need to hit her again!" and Weber says, in the most disgusted voice possible, "No. She's Dead." and just drops the hammer on the ground.

That scene gets funnier each time I see it!

I like the Amazon's level of power. When a bunch of Turks land with G98's...it doesn't all go the Amazon's way.

That's why I think they should have stuck with Wonder Woman just being able to deflect bullets with her magic bracers, rather than being basically invulnerable and immune to gas, etc.

But on the other hand, it's a superhero movie. It is kinda fun to see someone charging a machine gun nest and taking it out single-handed.

You know, they never did explain those bracers in the movie or the other magic items she has on.

But the best line is when Cain is running away with Jack's character in the cart, he gets hit by a bolt of lightning, and he says "Ouch, do you think that'll leave a mark?"

326 Wasn't Capt. Marvell Superman's equivalent?

Basically. In some ways, he was even more powerful. His biggest weakness is that he was, at heart, still a 1940's little boy, so he was very gullible and not wise at all. So he was incredibly easy to fool.

The character doesn't really work today because young people are such cynical worldly jerks.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at September 22, 2017 06:26 PM (39g3+)

327 BTW, Wonder Woman was a good movie and I love the character and the performance, which was very charming.

I like the director too -- color in a DCEU comic book movie! What an idea!!! And having a hero who is, get this, actually morally centered and "good"! What will they think of next!!!

But if I'm going to knock her, it's for... I think women accept this Harry Potter magic fighting stuff more than men. Men want to see actual fighting where we can see a basically "real" fight, just carried out with superpowers. Maybe women don't care about that as much and don't mind Harry Potter style magical combat.

Which I kind of hate.

But man, was Fantastic beasts unexpectedly fun!

she did show a lot of skill in the Room Fights in that belgium town, and some of her moves were really inventive and cool (like using the shield to slide along the floor before jumping up into a roudhouse kick), but by that point, we'd seen her show so much strength and speed (and ability to block almost any bullet) that her incredible skill, while present, was just kind of unnecessary. When you've got about half of superman's power and about a third of the Flash's speed, you don't *need* skill, really.

At the end, she didn't really use skill, she just used super strength, super speed, and some force field effect that came out of nowhere.

I like Harry Potter stuff in... Harry Potter books and movies.

I want uniqueness and kick-ass fighting. We like the mixed martial arts here, the building and wall climbers (in real life, pretty amazing), and in movies, I want to be engaged and challenged.

Wonder Woman, like you said, started out interesting, with the way the women amazonians fought, but then when she realized her strengths, to me, it became a bit boring. And, then unrealistic. If she had such strength, why bother with anything else. That bugged me. She didn't need to do anything else, because she had no weaknesses (other than her love...). ho hum

It takes quite an incredible movie to make me happy, however.

If you look closely -- this flashes by so fast -- she's holding the sword by the BLADE, htting them with the HILT.

Which is a real thing -- swords can't cut through plate armor, so it was a real thing to hit armored opponents with the heavier hilt, holding it by the end of the blade.

503 I was also a fan of his TV series "When Things Were Rotten", which featured Dick Gautier as Robin Hood & Divk van Patten as Friar Tuck. One of the best opening themes ever:

They laughed, they loved
They fought, they drank
They jumped a lot of fences...
They robbed the rich, gave to the poor
Except what they kept for expenses!

So when other legends are forgotten
We'll remember back when
'Things Were Rotten';
Yay for Robin Hood!!


That's all from memory, baby.

John "Build the Dang Fence" McCain Liesplains His Obamacare Reform No-Vote: I Won't Support Any Law That Democrats Don't Support Too

Not that surprising to see a Democrat defending the interests of the Democrat Party.

Strange that a vain, narcissistic man who claims to be The Only Straight-Shootin' Maverick Truth-Teller in DC would lie about his actual party loyalty, though.

Itís worth noting, by the way, that his rationale is rather bizarre. His key point -- one he reiterated in his tweet announcing the decision-- is this:

We should not be content to pass health care legislation on a party-line basis, as Democrats did when they rammed Obamacare through Congress in 2009. If we do so, our success could be as short-lived as theirs when the political winds shift, as they regularly do. The issue is too important, and too many lives are at risk, for us to leave the American people guessing from one election to the next whether and how they will acquire health insurance. A bill of this impact requires a bipartisan approach.

Fine, but if so, what was literally all of this about? Itís been clear since early this year, when Democrats rebuffed the original Cassidy-Collins bill, that no Democrat would support a repeal or deep reform of Obamacare. If McCain sincerely believes this, he should have been a firm no from the start, and shouldn't have teased everyone by flirting with support for the various bills the Senate considered.




In fairness to John McCain -- he lies an awful lot, running as a "conservative" every six years and then voting like a liberal Democrat for the next five, and GOP voters have permitted this fraud to go on for decades, so why should he stop now?

If voters vote for lies, fraud, and betrayal, why should they not have exactly that in McCain-ego-sized buckets?

At least he got the support of his actual constituents: The liberal media:


It's okay to screw over your millions of dupe, rube voters if you can get someone in the media to flatter your old, brokedown-but-ravenous vanity.

31 I have a thought. Why can't the Republicans simply pick the most obnoxious RINO, say McCain, and expel him/her. Then announce that if The People want change they should elect as many new Republicans as possible and we can expel more, for example if we gain ten seats we will expel eight of the worst.

Strip them of the cover, remove their committee assignments. They were willing to punish the Freedom Caucus, make them enforce discipline on the left wing too. It would be far more productive with 53 cohesive Republicans than it would be with sixty. With sixty there would be the expectation of breaking filibusters which of course can't happen with RINOs and thus a disillusioned base. And with a real threat to clean house every two years so long as The People were willing to do their part the routine "unexpected" betrayals would quickly end.

That's not entirely true. JD Hayworth was a perfectly good primary candidate but lots of "conservatives" went apeshit over some paid ads he did while out of Congress - which was all total bullshit.

That he can stroke his #NeverTrump erogenous zone is just icing on his cake.

Hopefully Trump realizes what prior commentor mentioned: Dem's effectively have control of the Senate. Act accordingly.

Trump needs the R pickup's in the 2018 election to get his agenda through. The problem is that waiting for 2018 with no legislative victories will hurt their chances in getting those wins.

137 We should not be content to pass health care legislation on a party-line basis, as Democrats did when they rammed Obamacare through Congress in 2009.

But it's not being done on a party line basis. JJ made a similar point on the news dump. Someone said how it's a shame that Republicans might have to go after political enemies, and JJ said, no, it's because those political enemies are criminal. We should be passing a repeal because OCare is an unconstitutional shit sandwich.

If we do so, our success could be as short-lived as theirs when the political winds shift, as they regularly do.

They only shift because assholes like you never do anything, and people think maybe aimlessly flitting to the other side of the uniparty with a different letter will make a difference.

The issue is too important, and too many lives are at risk, for us to leave the American people guessing from one election to the next whether and how they will acquire health insurance.

But if the healthcare system is so crappy that "lives are at risk", then people's only hope is for some kind of change in the system, brought about by election.

A bill of this impact requires a bipartisan approach.

But since they won't compromise, why not just say "a bill of this impact requires a Democrat approach"?

Seriously:

https://futurism.com/people-in-two-u-s-states-will-get-1000-a-month-in-a-new-basic-income-trial/

They're doing all this as part of a social experiment to hopefully "prove" that if you get welfare money, you'll take more risks and be more entrepreneurial than if you have to earn a living.

All in an attempt to persuade us all to implement "Universal Guaranteed Income" -- i.e welfare benefits for EVERYONE nationwide -- in the US.

$66 million to conduct a ridiculous flawed study.

Now, he knows the side his bread is buttered on, but since he's tasted the teat of liberal cock and cash, he's gone full retard. It's a shame, but all of hollywood is dead to me. Conservatives that make movies aren't in hollywood, so they don't count, really. They're shunned as well.

They won't figure it out. They will NEVER figure it out. I don't shop where I'm not wanted. I'm not wanted where they pay liberal fucktards to shill their product.

No, capitalism doesn't suck sometimes. If it wasn't for capitalism, there would not have even been this treatment discovered.

Just because a treatment is expensive, it doesn't mean that the company is greedy. It usually means that it cost a fuckton of money to create the treatment.

McCain will be gone soon. Graham is losing his buttbuddy and must run on his own now. As always, he needs to look like he's moving to the right before every reelection campaign. McCain provides the kill shot on behalf of the GOP (and Graham more specifically) as this legislation fails and Graham doesn't get left holding the bag while he poses as a guy "who just tried to get things done via compromise but, gosh darn it, we just couldn't get it done".

This is pure politics and failure theater. And McCain just being his usual, backstabbing a-hole.

215 I know it's a lot of speculation, but how different would things be now if McCain had won the election in '08?
Would America be in any better shape? It's doubtful. We may or may not have got Obama, but there's a good chance we would of had him or HRC after one term of McCain. Chances are Government would have taken over healthcare anyway--possibly with more bipartisan support and a faster track to total nationalization. Additionally, there is no telling what kind of foreign interventions America would be involved in. Either way, government growth and spending probably would be at the same level it is today.
We'd surely have open borders.
It's a toss up as to where America would be at this point in time.

238 173 California Tech Firm Hands Out $66 Million in Cash to Random Strangers to See If Welfare Makes You Smart


$1,000 per month. Wow. That'll sure change some lives.

I wonder how much that is in crystal meth.
Posted by: Cicero (@cicero)


The completely crazy part is that the recipients were chosen at random -- NOT just pre-existing welfare recipients, or "poor people." Most of the people getting the money are employed, possibly even well-off.

The "experiment" is to prove that the $1,000/month guaranteed for 5 years will give you enough of a "psychological cushion" that you will "take risks" and thus cure cancer or invent Facebook or something like that.

Meanwhile, the "control group" who will get "only" $50/month are supposed to feel "unsafe," and thus WON'T cure cancer or invent Facebook, because they're not getting enough welfare to give them the cushion.

Of course, the funny part is that the reverse will happen -- the $1,000/month people will kick back and smoke doobies all day long because they have no worries, while the $50/monthers will scramble to make more $$$, and thus be more "motivated."

Basic economics -- how does it work again?

He's nothing but a liar and a fraud and a con. I stopped voting for him decades ago. I only supported him for president (and only after he received the nomination) because the alternative was so horrible.

Why people keep voting for him is a mystery. Every 6 years he pretends to care about border security, then as soon as he is safely re-elected, he votes against every border security measure. And he views himself as some type of heroic figure for continually and deliberately deceiving and betraying the people who vote him into office.

McCain is just weird and pathetic. His father and grandfather must be rolling in their graves.

This is guilty of two fallacies, consequentialism and false dichotomy.

You argue that an unjust system is acceptable, because it has gotten some positive result.

If someone were suffering from double kidney failure do they have the right to appropriate one of your kidneys? It wouldn't kill you, and would have a positive result. See the problem, genius?

It also assumes that this is our *only* alternative, as opposed to numerous reforms, such as tort reform, legislation regarding pharmaceuticals, artificial limits on the number of physicians, etc. You act as if this shit sandwich is the *only* possibility.

That's it, right there. They don't. The Uniparty cares about itself, power, the deep state, money, committees, access. People of the country barely make a dent in their considerations. That's why a populist victory was viewed with such derision...basically sneered at. The social contract has been shredded. Not sure there are even ethics anymore. The moral compass broke long ago.

We have a Uniparty. I have decided if I accept this reality I can stop losing my mind every week. Our only way out, truly out, is a new party to run against the Uniparty. And win.

376 McCain is not interested in leading. He's interested in basking in the media sunshine for his last remaining days.

Correct, as long as he can be allowed to simply react and respond rather than lead, he can be a media darling and tongued gently by the left. Forcing him to stand up and do his job rather than simply vote no would change that dynamic.

Honest question: has John McCain ever done anything actually conservativish?

He's a big time hawk, so he's always for military spending.

Re: comment #124,

Yep, we should never forget that McStain's personal corruption goes back DECADES. - And my recollection is that he gave one of those lame-ass half-apologies. Something akin to: "I made a mistake. But I didn't really know the self-enriching corruption I was clearly descending into was actually wrong. So you know, it wasn't like I intended to be the venally crooked asshole I was revealed for being."
He never did come clean and own that he intentionally done something immoral.

I actually feel regret every time I remember the 08' election and that that I _proudly_ voted for him. - Blahhggh!

The only in good-conscience way to have voted for this stinkin' jerk was by recognizing that it was out of pure necessity in opposing Obama.

We can't be rid of him from politics soon enough.
The good riddance will be sweet.

9 George Bush's betrayal of Scooter Libbey is one of the few things I can never forgive him for.

It's why I remain so happy that Trump pardoned Arpaio. Bush could never, ever have done that because he has his head so far up his ass about "respecting the system" or whatever.

35 part of the reason Plame gets protection is that she was 007 Jane Bond the super double secret agent who opposed the Bush administration. Only that evil Darth Cheney revealed her blowing her deep cover as an analyst who was on the cover of a magazine and listed in Who's Who as a CIA op.

43 JFK-- and other prominent Catholics-- used to get "divided loyalty" crap, too. He had to make s speech about how he wouldn't be the Pope's lackey.

Not quite the same thing as the anti-Semitism, but at least somewhat analogous.

Democrats: hating Catholics and Jews since before the Klan, because they also invented the Klan.

44 Her mistake was not going straight to the "false flag" defense.

Blame the jews for the tweet, and then her anti-semite friends would all silently nod, and she could also claim it did not represent her views.

This is the power of the false flag defense. By blaming the other side for your actions, you are both denying what you did, and doubling down on what you did. A soooper secret spy should know this.

51 I'm torn as to how best to punish that wicked cow.

On one hand, getting her anti-Semitism published in glaring headlines and endless op-eds, might be just the medicine to finally brand her as the evil she is.

Conversely, she's a whore for publicity, and utterly shunning and ignoring her forever would torture her soul, if indeed, she has one.

My personal opinion is that locking her in stocks in the public square, with a truckload of rotten vegetables piled up about 10 ft. from her, provided free to folks who want to try their best MLB pitching form...

Shame, approbation and the formality of shunning, are due for a reappearance as a societal norm.

No reason not to start with her, I think?

Ah well, I can but wish. Pity it'll never happen.

54 Because she supported Hillary, is attractive and she didn't like Bush. Also, i think a lot of leftists-which she really is- are anti-semitic, meaning that they're nominally Jewish and not really supportive of Israel.
