EMT 08/19/17

A bit of a good story to partially stem all the bad in this world.

Thursday night, I'm driving down from Louisville to home in Tn. Late, but instead of stay the night, I want to beat the race traffic.

It's been raining, and it's foggy, and I'm driving a set of secondary highways through the Cumberland Gap in what I am sure is some amazing scenery on a clear day.

Come off one mtn a little past the Kentucky border into Virginia, and my right headlight goes.

10 minutes later, a Jonesville deputy has the rollers on behind me.

It's 3 a.m. The world is crazy. Your mind can't help but think of all the ways a simple stop can go wrong.

I pull into the first well-lit parking lot I find in their sleepy little town, put on the dome light, and hold the wheel at 10 and 2 until he taps on my window.

"You've got a headlight out"

"I know - it literally went out 10 minutes ago coming off that last mountain".

"License and registration" he asks.

I hand him my license and my CCW, telling him I am carrying, and it is in the door pocket, and that my registration is the glove box, and it's a mess in there, so it may take some looking.

He thanks me for letting me know re. the pistol, and tells me to take my time finding the registration.

I hand it to him, and he asks if he can take the gun from the car and put it on my roof while he calls everything in.

I know it's not a requirement, but I don't want a hassle. So I tell him sure and "Would you like to get it yourself? It's in the door-pocket, a round in the chamber, and the safety is on."

He agrees, I open the door for him, and he takes the piece and puts it on my car roof while he returns to his car.

A few minutes later, he comes back, says everything checks out, puts my pistol back in the door, and says to be sure I get the headlight fixed.

Then he says something really nice and unnecessary:

"It was a pleasure meeting you."

I presume it was because I was calm, courteous and let him know everything I was doing so there were no surprises.

But I appreciate that he repaid my respect.

Chris Rock will not steer you wrong when it comes to dealing with the police, it doesn't matter what your skin tone is.

1 Good Morning Morons. Today is Saturday, August 19, 2017. On this day in 1745 Bonnie Prince Charles raised his standard in Glenfinnan: The start of the Second Jacobite Rebellion, known as "the 45". But even the Highlander could not save this doomed cause.

Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens joined calls Friday for state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal to be expelled from the legislature after saying she hopes President Trump is assassinated.

The Republican governor put out a string of tweets noting that lawmakers have called on the Democratic lawmaker to resign and urged the Senate to kick her out if she refuses.

A couple of years ago Walmart wanted to build a store on the south west side of Chicago.The aldermen and the city turned them down in protest. Walmart built almost in the closest suburb right on the border. The suburb said "thank you very much Chicago" as they raked in the sales tax money.

As we wait for the solar eclipse to arrive on Monday, here are solar eclipse myths from around the world.

Metal Cover of Toto - Africa

Whiskey

Hmmmm. Chemists confirm that whiskey really does taste better with a splash of water.

Oh that's nasty. 'Fatbergs' are the scourge of city sewers.

Hurricane Season

Well, the season sure has picked up. Harvey buffets windward islands en route to Caribbean. 2 more storms behind that one to keep an eye on.

Wanted woman who wants to conceive child during totality eclipse in OR











I am 40 years of age, caucasian male from Europe. My heritage is strong and pure.



My looks, instincts, knowledge and strength is 100% pure and 100% lethal.



I am looking for a worthy female with strong genes, beauty and smarts.
To join me - to experience the totality eclipse in Oregon.



Exact place not set.



If we have chemistry, I would like for us to make love while the eclipse is happening.



When totality occurs, we will have simultaneous orgasms and we will
conceive a child that will be on the next level of human evolution.



We will make love together, with me and my penis directed towards the sun.

Everything will be aligned in the local universe.

Both of our cosmic orgasmic energy will be aligned with the planets.



In a brief moment of ecstasy, we will understand everything, and together, create a new universe. Full of love...



You must like cats. Drugs are OK. Nitrous Oxide while we climax and experience totality and conception, is OK with me.

Earlier today I read the Navy's preliminary report on the Fitzgerald.

The ship's company of enlisted sailors shone throughout their ordeal whereas the senior leadership, seemingly, did not. Commander, XO and CMC all relieved yesterday.

Kudos to the Damage Control teams. It's indescribably terrifying to turn to in the dead of night and save your vessel when compartments are flooding in 90 seconds or less and mattresses, bedding and sailors are swirling about - and you have no idea why.

RIP to our lost shipmates.

59 "Not that the A-10 needed more teeth, but it can drop JDAMs now."

A comparatively cheap and stealthy drone with long loiter intervals can drop a JDAM.

The A-10 needs to show up occasionally to deal with armor formations, to bolster friendly morale, and to scare the living shit out of anyone who isn't friendly. JDAMs are too quiet left of boom.

By the way, on the "armor formations" front, the Chinese are armoring up at an amazing rate, to include the PLA Marines.

But not to worry! Our much smaller forces will easily overwhelm the primitive Asian hordes with amazing Western technology! ("Western technology" sourced in large part from China itself, and full of backdoors exploits.)

Any war against the US has to be won early, because after 45 days you're dealing with a US that can transition to a full wartime economy, complete with mass mobilization. Either that, or you have to be able to endure for a long time.

A lot of China's buildup seems to be centered around the latter concept. Denying the US Navy the ability to strike at the Chinese mainland, as well as building entire cities that could be populated with workers at a moments notice (what, you thought that they were just bad real-estate investing?). It wouldn't surprise me if the Chinese military had plans to quickly cut new passes through the mountains and into Central Asia as well. Those supply lines would be hard to sever by US air power, especially if Pakistan, Iran, and Russia denied the US access to their airspace.

A few hours pass and my client walks over to me and says 'stop messin' with Barbara'. I told him that my German ancestors actually came over in the '50s.

It's time to jettison the press. We need a new, objective news organization instead of bolsheviks-with-bylines. Maybe electing them would be reasonable way to do it. Just thinking outloud. The current crop is too calcified and corrupted.

90 Mike H - According to the report "The damage control posture of the ship was Modified ZEBRA, meaning that all doors inside the ship, and all hatches (openings located on the floor between decks) at the main deck and below were shut in order to help secure the boundaries between different areas of the ship in case of flooding or fire. Watertight scuttles on the hatches (smaller openings that can be opened or closed independently of the hatch) were left open in order to allow easy transit between spaces."

Berthing space 2 was secured in this manner but the collision opened a hole to the sea 13' by 17' into that compartment. There's no saving a space that compromised.

To me, it's a miracle that 27 sailors escaped that space via an open scuttle. It will never be known, but I choose to believe the 7 sailors that did not were already drowned.

well, I ain't gonna read it. It would be too depressing. But I'm curious. Let's say there are 6 R's who are "swing" voters. I'd guess that their states voted for them because they were the shit sandwich served up on the ticket, but they voted *intentionally* for Trump. So - are they going to throw their political careers into the trash bin for no good reason? Are they going to risk the citizens of their states bringing out the pitchforks, rope and tiki torches (not that I would approve of such things *gasp*)? It would be an incredibly stupid move, given that there are even less grounds for impeachment than there were for Clown Nose Blue Dress Jackoff.

I have most of my great grandparents coming from Germany around 1860s or so ... but many claim their lineage is from colonial America.

If it is twelve (they had kids young) ... then that means 4096 great* grandparents? We all have that one or two that were colonial blood, and many that were ... ? something other.

Basically, the article is wish casting, and kind of skirts around the fact that the house has to start the process; the senate completes it.

Interesting thing is that ONE Senator was named: John McCain.

Also... it would seem that a majority of people think that "Mueller" has all the info he needs to hang Trump. I'm guessing for "treason."

RE: the senators who would vote against Trump... I'm pretty sure they will have jobs as lobbyists provided by their liberal friends in the corporate world if they do so. So really, they do NOT care about their careers at this point.

So the mechanics of the article are incorrect, however I have no doubt the Deep State has control over a number of Senators.

I know I can't.

And I can't do anything on Ancestry.com because... eastern europe/ 2 world wars, all records lost. My uncle had to trace his roots when he was in law school in the 50's. Got nowhere.

However, that will not stop me from making things up.

But I will not do the DNA thing.

/we all know that's just to get your DNA voluntarily, which they'll use for God Only Knows, and then, when they're done with it, they'll tell your health insurance provider that you have genetic markers for something fatal and expensive and your insurance will go up 5,000% a year. As opposed to the 200% a year increase we have now.

The school bell rang, I was out of there
Church choir sang but I didn't care
Who wants salvation from sin
I wondered at seventeen
Burned my bridges and I burned my tires
Between those ditches gasoline on fire
Bottle of anger and scotch
Dimestore Hemingway
I thought I looked tough for the girls
But they laughed at me any way

Till I got my hands on an old Telecaster
One night stands half high or half plastered
Paved the road with guilt,, the damage done
I was proof incarnate
Youth gets wasted on the young

And since I've got cymbals to shine tomorrow and a three hour show to do with the guy who wrote those lines...

And Uncle Publius has some further advice for the young ladies. Because of a strange gravitational effect, due to peak tidal forces during the totality and near totality phases of the event, breast problems can develop if they are confined during said event.

They must be uncovered to avoid damage.

However, coronal light can cause a rash. A preventive measure is to cover them with a a type of protein, which coincidentally is found in male semen in sufficient quantities for proper protection.

Posted by: The Mouse that Roared, Americans don't Serf


My experience is admittedly limited to one engagement, so I'm glad to know that they're still being used (hopefully well). But every friggin year, we get to hear how "The A-10 is on the chopping block!!!!", and it makes me furious. I think those F-18 Marine Aviators have more of an affinity for the Marines on the ground than the Air Force-Army dynamic/disconnect that I got to experience.

When I was looking at becoming a TACP, the running joke was "The Army doesn't want them, and the Air Force doesn't know what to do with them!", and I always got the feeling that the same mentality that applied to the TACPs extended to the aircraft they worked best with.

My aforementioned buddy, who was at that time now up into the Brigade level of things, mentioned their TACPs were assigned at the Bde level...and I was like "??? WTF are TACPs going to be doing at the Brigade HQ level...those boys need to be down at the Company or Platoon level!"

CAS and their controller embeds don't seem to be a well-integrated function in the Army/AF dynamic, sounds like maybe they are in the Marines.

The TACP was at the brigade level because there weren't enough to push down to every battalion, so they'd get assigned by BDE during the mission planning process.

Joe Friday is not going to stick a microphone in front of a woman who has just seen her child murdered. But that sort of thing drives ratings, and ratings pay the bills.

So do you really need special glasses for the eclipse? We will be at 92%
here. Why is it any different than looking at the sun with your
sunglasses on?

Yes, you MUST have glasses or else BLIND. Why is this different? IDK.

Also, other random conspiracy site said that making people watch the eclipse is to give more power to some sort of demonic/satanic/other ritual that began with Charlottesville riots. So for the safety of our nation, we should NOT participate at all.

244 Before the Irish potato famine, the poulation of Ireland had exceded that of England. When the famine struck, the English landlords took the wheat, barley, and other crops that their tennants grew to pay the rent, and sold it to France and Germany, whose peasants were also dependant on potatoes, and were suffering from the same famine. 4 million lives later, the Irish were then hit with arbitrary Penal laws and other indignities.

They're just afraid of blithering idiots staring at the sun, unprotected for a prolonged period.

The UV light will burn you cornea and other stuff. There's a name for this condition. It can occur with snow reflecting a lot up into your eyes. The UV doesn't penetrate and get inside your eyeball. However, infrared will and that will damage your retina. Intense visible light can do it as well.

IIRC most glass and plastic will block a good bit of the short wavelength UV, but this varies. It will let the UV-A through, though, and that, while not as damaging as the shorter ones, can still cause damage if it's high enough intensity.

Welding hoods usually have lens that completely block the UV and IR.

Arc flashes, even through the clear plastic covers, such as on one of my mine with a flip cover are not as bad because it kills the UV and IR.

Anyway, all this is because they're worried about idiots looking at the Sun for prolonged periods with no protection.

Finished Stage 1 of the emblingification of my '88 plain-Jane Chevy pickup. Painted the (rusty) silver wheels Hunter Green from a rattle can, and used the same color on a set of fender flares (actual Chevy parts), welded some lugs to the wheels so that '53 Studebaker small hub caps could be snapped on. They fit fine, and survived to trip to town and back on washboard gravel road. Gives the truck an air of restrained elegance, it does.

The odd part is that I know exactly why they're losing them. I talk to their former clients in one of my jobs. They've told me.

High school football seems to be massive in only a few states though. Probably popular throughout most but in some it's on another level. Texas is number 1 at that.

401 382 Our local news reported on how proud and excited they are in Katy, TX over the brand new $70 million dollar football stadium they just opened...for the high schools. It's the most expensive high school facility in the country. Honestly, and I say this as a former athlete, this is waste of money.

Posted by: no good deed at August 19, 2017 12:31 AM (r70LM)

That's a lot of moola for high-school football. Here in Canada, high-school (and college, for that matter) football is pretty much watched only by the classmates/friends/families of the players involved. Very, very, low key. Pro football, OTOH, has its fanatical fans just as in the USA.

One of the more obvious cultural differences between Canada and the USA.

High school football seems to be massive in only a few states though. Probably popular throughout most but in some it's on another level. Texas is number 1 at that. I think Ohio is up there too, we would joke about being able to rob my town blind on years that our football team was good and making it to the state finals.
Posted by: Buzzion



Its huge in Pennsylvania too. My dead, decaying, drug riddled hometown built a brand spanking new stadium for the football team. The population is shrinking (due to graduation classes leaving and never coming back since about 1977 and a heroin epidemic) but they got a new stadium. Not sure how the hell it got paid for. Still, HS football is huge in PA.

---
Oh well, that makes it all worth it.

However, can the LEDs be wirelessly controlled? If they're not wireless, they're not cool.

Also, can they run low resolution video content through the LEDs? Do they have someone providing low rez video content to be played throughout the game? Is the low rez video content being played through the LEDs tied into the audio system and audio reactive?

If they can't do any of those things well then WTF is the use of the system?

/I'll take their "dynamic LED system" and raise it with the LED systems I know about.

The best part is that these facilities are typically being financed by exorbitantly costly capital-appreciation bonds. Also known as "financial time bombs". One of Wall Street's latest tricks for dopey elected officials representing mathematically illiterate voters.

So a stadium with a nameplate price tag of $70M may end up costing the local taxpayers five times that much money by the time it's all finally paid off.

There are maritime "rules of the road", as there are for vehicles at a four-way stop. Vessels under power are supposed to yield to vessels under sail. But if your vessel under power is a quarter-mile long, and weighs 200000 tons, "yielding" is an exercise in futility.

431 Bear in mind though, that that hideous, overpriced stadium in Katy, does at least serve to support FOUR major* High Schools in the Katy Independent School District.

*major, being Class 5a schools, with 10th, 11th & 12th grade student population at around +3,500. Per. School. Katy is growing at such an insane rate, that a fifth such campus is not an abstract thought, out there.

It's a semi-regional stadium, not simply one belonging to and serving only one school.

In that sense, it's a bit better than those same four schools, each building a stadium of their own.

A "bit" better. Only because each of those four stadiums would've been 80% versions of the one that was built.

The numbers of properties which would've had to have been condemned and Eminent Domained, would've cost far, far more than the mega-stadium, as built.

Plus, (minor) credit where due. It looks like they built it to last. Really.

Let's hope they did, and it does.

463 335 - I quit watching news - any news - several years ago.
Apart from the inefficiency of newscasts (so much time expended to dispense so little info), it tends to be very superficial, inept, and biased. I've found that I'm much happier. I can pick up trends and important events by skimming a variety of blogs and listening to people at work etc. I don't find that I'm less well-informed on average.

If I truly need to know something, I have to look to a source other than the news. Journalists know nothing. In college, even the Art History majors had a more rigorous course of study. Even if they were not biased, most just lack the IQ.

A total solar eclipse occurs about every 18 months, on average. The problem is, most of the Earth's surface is water and so they don't occur over land in good spots quite as much.

The frequency at which they occur at any given place is about once every 400 years, or so, on average, but it is not a nice simple cycle.

And, because the Moon is slowly receding and the Sun slowly increasing in diameter, in 600 million years, there will be no more total eclipses.

Fellow Horde Members and Morons! While the total solar eclipse is indeed a marvel, many of you will be outside the zone of totality. Even if you are in an area where the eclipse is 92% or 98%, PLEASE protect your eyes and your vision. Regular sunglasses are not enough protection to avoid eye damage. You MUST use an approved ISO or NASA approved eye protection. Or you can use at minimum #14 welders glasses. Your vision is a gift. Please don't get careless and destroy that gift. An eclipse is a wonderful thing, but please be smart with your gift of sight. Protect your eyes and enjoy a marvel of the cosmos. If you're blind, you'd have a hard time commenting here.

475 I recently finished reading a very interesting book: "The Queen of the North Disaster - the Captain's Story" , written by Colin Henthorne, who is a personal friend. One of his main points is that the new "digital" radars installed on the vessel made it harder, not easier to do the routine tasks required for safe navigation.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at August 19, 2017 01:24 AM (2le8w)



Non-tactical, Maritime Surface Navigation, especially concerning commercial traffic within visual range, is an analog calculation, and might be best measured by analog electronics.

I would relate it to the fact that they've not yet taught a digitally controlled robotic device, to be able to hit a Major League Pitch, with even a bit of the reliability of an MLB hitter with a .325 average.

Assessing that 90 mph fastball or 80 mph slider or 70 mph hanging curve....well, it's still an area where the human brain reigns supreme. Not to mention the brain, bone, muscle interface that has to be enacted in less than the blink of an eye.

A camera/FLIR lookout system as I've described, would work.

Especially if coupled to an audible and visual warning alert system, which ONLY the Skipper could disable with code or key. And once disabled, it's his ass in the crosshairs.

If mounted high in an Ageis' superstructure, say, 40' above water for all camera points, I think we're looking at what...at least a 20 mile horizon?

Very well within reaction times, that.

Leave the dot-Mil digital tactical radar systems, to their intended tasks.

I'm describing a system an electronic system only one level above the Mk.1 eyeball, Seaman 1st Class lookout, and less than the Tac systems for CIC.

Common sense, which means Bureau of Ships will reject it out of hand.

484 Talk of ships reminded me of book I read called

Dead Wake
By Erik Larson

I got the shock of my life at the end. Larson doesn't make any conclusions, just prevents the evidence.

I am about 100% sure the Lusitania was 'allowed' to be in waters with the express intention of her being sunk, b/c Winston Churchill thought it would get America into the war.

There's a lot of evidence for it, and there was one thing specifically that was a tipping point for me.

I'd be interested in anyone else's opinion who read it & their conclusion. Esp. If differed from mine. But man, it was a bummer.

Posted by: Gorilla Gumdrop at August 19, 2017 01:49 AM (aENAX)

485
Given enough time, the earth would finally get in tidal lock with the Moon, just like the Moon is with earth. It would then be visible from only one hemisphere, and the solar day would be a month long.

However, the Sun will go red giant before then by a long shot.

About 600 million years in the past, the day was about 22 hours long, and there were around 400 days per year.

The solar system is chaotic enough over billion year timescales that there is non-zero probability of something crazy happening, such as an inner planet being ejected. Or a collision. For example, Mars' eccentricity may increase enough to put in an Earth crossing orbit.

Other crazy things are possible.

The Lusitania was carrying war material, therefore a legitimate target in the eyes of the Germans. That has been refuted but in light of recent discoveries, she was carrying war material. There was an horrific loss of life on that sinking. Most criminal, in my opinion, was putting war material on a commercial vessel thinking that it may have avoided attack.

It was actually the log of the German sub commander that was my tipping point. The evidence is pretty overpowering when you read all that Larson uncovered. Stuff we didn't have prior. I didn't want to believe it was true, but the German guy's log records state's he doesn't understand why the L was there, as he had just sunk a ship prior days.

Also, we now know all the other ships were warned away and had escorts. Anyway, Larsen is a respected author & does thorough research. If you read, would love your take on the evidence.

Well have we got news for you! To recognize the growing number of American men who are completely and utterly clueless with women, ConAgra brings you our newest dinner design:

*Lonely ManWich*

Yes, Lonely ManWich is the easy-to-make sloppy joe dinner for today's hopelessly undateable male. It's not only got all the nutrition a woman could give you if there were one on earth who was interested, but it's also specially formulated to taste best with the extra-inexpensive, extra-fatty ground beef that's priced so low, it's the only kind most older single men can afford!

Plus Lonely ManWich comes in all these great flavors:

- Socially Awkward Szechwan
- Creepy Dude Carolina BBQ
- Mangled Pride Mexican
- Cheap Bastard Chipotle

And Lonely ManWich is extra-easy to make. Just brown that pound of fatty ground round, stir in the sauce, and serve on no-name day-old hamburger buns.

Serving suggestions: pair your Lonely ManWich with Fritos, ramen noodles, or even just your own tears! Also goes great with deeply discounted lines of tequila and whiskey.

Lonely Manwich: Add some sadness to that sandwich!

Mars could, and I emphasize could, be terra-formed and support life but that is not a sure bet. It could be that our best chance for human survival could be on an exoplanet many light years away.

Sol's habitable zone will pushed out to Mars by 1.5 billion years.

Earth will be Venus like. In 2-3 Billion years the surface temp will get to 300F. It will be Venus after that. At the 4 billion year or so mark, the surface temperature will be that of molten rock. In about 7.5 billion, the Earth will likely fall into the Sun.

In 8 billion, the sun goes white dwarf, and that's all she wrote for this solar system.

But again, the solar system is chaotic enough over those time scales that it is impossible to predict the orbits. The inner planets could collide or be ejected by that time.

Never knew what it was but my guess was some black possibly abused her before we got her.

My dog is a Basset X Border Collie. She has a good nose on her, too. And a determination to chase rabbits. Monday, she was running around the yard in tight circles, and barking. Turned out she was chasing a tiny weasel. Every so often, the weasel would rear up on it's tiny haunches, and make Grrry! fists at Pogo, and she would back off, and the chase would be on again. It was funny as hell to watch. Finally, the weasel got away into a thicket of bushes.

There's an idea of an astroengineering project in the far future to keep Earth in Sol's habitable zone. Make repeated passes of asteroids by the earth to slowly perturb the orbit and drive it outward, keeping up with the increasing luminosity of the Sun.

Now, you've got Mars in the way out there, so you'd have to do something about that too.

534 I dunno personally. Earth could wind up being as extreme as Venus due to the amount of water vapor and methane available in our ecosystems.

We can't really predict what the two planets will look like in hundreds of millions of years. I guess I was thinking nearer term, say the next 20-200 years.

The radiation levels, the thin CO2 atmosphere and relative lack of water make the prospect of a self-sustaining Mars settlement far-fetched at best, impossible at worst.

I seem to remember a scheme to terraform Mars by bombarding it with chunks of ice stolen from comets or from the rings of Saturn. Settlers would live underground, of course, to avoid both cold and the radiation from the sun. But with enough atmosphere, as water vapor plus CO2, photosynthesis would get going, and make a breathable atmosphere, eventually.

-------------------

That's another thing. It's a big unknown. At one time, they thought that had a correlation with the Solar Systems movement around the galaxy with some extinction events, but that disappeared with better data on the motion.

That motion is more complicated than a simple ellipse because of the non-spherical (inverse square) galactic gravitational field.

The Sun goes around the center about every 250 million years, but also bobs up and down along the z-axis. I think we cross the plane every 30 million years or so. And now, I think we're on an upswing.

There's also movement in and out of the spiral arms, which varies the interstellar "dust" content. They may have something to do with climate as well.

Posted by: publius, the Persistent Poperin Pear at August 19, 2017 03:07 AM (8O3HH)

539 the idea of terraforming mars is preposterous. it's geologically dead without any protection from the solar wind. and to what end? as a refuge from an ecologically doomed earth? the cost of terraforming would be far in excess of any comparable efforts to change earth's atmosphere.

My dog was very happy just wandering around smelling the roses, so to speak. But chase anything? She was not play oriented so unless you tossed a bone to 'fetch' (as in, 'it's mine now, suckah'), she wouldn't chase anything. I could throw no ball or toy that she would chase and fetch; she'd just sit and stare at me with a look that said, 'You threw it, fool. YOU go get it. In the meantime, I'll be over here on my back rolling in the grass.'

They have Gobekli Tepi back to as far as 10,000 BC. But that gets close to the end of the ice age, which would have radically changed coastlines and rivers, which is where settlements were likely to be. So who knows?

549 "would have changed coastlines..."

an excellent point. the toba supervolcano is linked to a genetic bottleneck in humans around 75,000 years ago. so that's the window, 75,000 to 12,000 years ago or so. my guess is 10,000 is probably the outward limit.

Posted by: musical jolly chimp at August 19, 2017 03:48 AM (AxFdW)

550 One objection about terraforming Mars is that the planet's gravity is too weak to hold onto the artificially created atmosphere. It might only last 10,000 years or so before dissipating into space.

But...

10,000 years ago humans were hunting animals with spears. Today we're seriously talking about terraforming planets. What will we be capable of doing 10,000 years from now?

The point being, Mars is not a permanent home for humanity but just a temporary way station. We could use raw materials from asteroids and comets with spiderlike robots building artificial habitats all over the inner solar system. There may be breakthroughs in propulsion that could enable us to explore and colonize planets around nearby stars.

I do consider myself fortunate to have lived during the period when humanity took its first tentative steps into the cosmos.

Australian aborigines have lived, almost unchanged, for upwards of 40,000 years.

557 Alright, here I'll say it. I'm drunk enough to not care, but I'll probably regret posting this tomorrow.

Anyone who read the ONT last night knows that my father in law is dying by inches from liver cancer. This has been, as you can imagine, a huge burden on my family. Gingy is holding it together for herself by the skin of her teeth. I'm holding everything else together.

I saw him last night, on facetime. We talked, bantered, just as we always do. He's 75, has worked every day of his life since he was 14. Did a stretch in the RCAF as a loadmaster. He can still pack a car better than I can, and I'm no slouch, damnit. He had JUST retired when he was diagnosed. Literally almost on the same day. Worst. Retirement. Ever.

Dad (and yes, I call him dad, he's earned the title alongside my father, if for no reason other than that he delivered to me the beautiful, perfect woman who is my wife), is skinny as a rail and getting skinnier. He's not in any pain, thank God, but it's the last lap and we all know it.

So what do I do? As I said, I hold it all together. But damn it, I like him. I love him. Not in the same way I love my dad (and if you think this is maudlin, wait until my actual dad dies, I'll be wrecked. Completely and utterly wrecked.), but it's still the same.

I'm sitting here, strong, together, because that's what a man does. It's what I have to do.

But dear God, he's going to die. And that will leave a huge hole in my life. I'm going to miss him, a lot more than I would have thought.

Spend time when and where you can, as much as possible. Enjoy the simple stuff. Ask all the questions you can about family history. At some point, you'll need to make arrangements as they say, so you'll need to be ready and know what his wishes are. It fell on me to go with my Dad to pick out an Urn for Mom. It was so hard and surreal, but she needed to know that it was done, and it wouldn't fall onto my Dad alone.

At some point you all will accept the inevitable. It isn't easy. I had to turn away from people walking by me at work at random times to hide the tears, but it wasn't about me, so you drag yourself forward. The disease itself was terrible in what she went through and what it did to her. But we were blessed in that we were able to have all those conversations rather than regret never having taken the time.

You are headed into some rough times. Allow yourself some slack. You aren't perfect, you can't do this perfectly, but you will get through it. To say, "enjoy the time you have," sounds trite, but it really is what you need to do.

Media Criticizes General Mattis for Telling Navy Sailors That Their Jobs Are Worth It, Because At Least They Know They're Not "Pussies"

Oh, dear. Our priestly caste of wan pencil-scratchers is once again a-tremble with the ecstasy of outrage.

I'm sure they're just trying to protect these sailors from #Triggering #Harm -- I'm sure these sailors have never heard such salty language!

"You will have some of the best days of your life and some of the worst days of your life in the U.S. Navy, you know what I mean?" Mattis told sailors at Naval Base Kitsap, Washington, according to the official transcript. "That means you're living."

"That means you're not some pussy sitting on the sidelines, you know what I mean, kind of sitting there saying, ‘Well, I should have done something with my life,'" he continued.


In response to his speech, NBC News complained that "Defense Secretary Mattis Uses Disparaging Term in Speech to Navy," comparing his remarks to Trump's comments on the infamous Access Hollywood tape about grabbing women "by the pussy."

Newsweek likewise complained that "Defense Secretary Suggests Civilians Are ‘Pussies' for Sitting on the Sidelines."

"Donald Trump's secretary of defense James ‘Mad Dog' Mattis appeared to suggest those who did not serve the country were ‘a bunch of pussies,'" read the lede.

The Washington Post consulted retired Col. Don Christensen, the head of an anti-sexual assault organization who said that Mattis' comments were "troubling."

Christensen noted that the remarks "clearly implied that those who don't serve are less manly than those who do."

Note this about that last sissy criticism: This comes from the same media that exalts itself as Truth Warriors elevated above every other walk of life in America.

Their objection isn't actually that Mattis suggested that one occupation is more elevated than another -- it's that he said the wrong occupation is the Most Exalted.

Everyone knows the media are the moast specialist people -- just read any magazine or watch any tv show! You'll see!

Open thread.

Don't forget, this stupid eclipse is on Monday, and I've decided okay, well, if it just happens once every 40 years or whatever, I guess I'll go look at it.

But it's hard to find eclipse glasses now, so if you're interested, start scrambling!

What a douchebag. Mattis was saying that those who didn't do something with their lives are pussies, and that one of the sure ways to do something with your life is to serve in the Navy.

BTW, who is this Christensen douchebag? This is who.

The Air Force's former chief prosecutor, who won a sexual assault conviction against an F-16 pilot that was later overturned by a three-star general, is leaving the military for high-profile victims advocacy group Protect Our Defenders.

In a statement, retired Col. Don Christensen called the military criminal justice system "fundamentally broken" and said the only way to help fix it is was from the outside.

Well, those dapples are not just beams of light that have found their way through the branches. They are actually PINHOLE CAMERA IMAGES OF THE SUN! So during an eclipse, all those little dots under your average tree will change shape to mimic what's happening above. Something I'd never imagined.

105 I took my collection of eclipse glasses to work today, so I wouldn't forget it on Monday.

If you don't have eclipse glasses, a #14 welder's faceplate is perfectly safe for viewing the Sun. A #12 can be used if the Sun is closer to the horizon or if the sky is hazy. They're both so dark that the Sun is just about the only thing you can see through them.

I have one of each and I'm sure I paid less than $10 apiece for them, but that was years ago. They're probably not much more than that today. You can buy them at any welder's supply store.

134 Part of the problem with the eclipse is that many of the locations in the zone of totality are small. Maybe 250 to 500 people on a good day.

All of a sudden there will be 2500 or 5000 people there.

There are, I shit you not, official public service announcements here in the Scum Scamfrisco Bay Area telling people to shut down major electrical appliances and the like before and during the eclipse.

I assume that this is because Commiefornia is now so sunken to the gunwales with aggressively mandated and heavily subsidized solar power that even a partial eclipse during daylight hours may destabilize the state grid.

In the umbra, it will get pretty dark, but not as dark as night. You can see stars.

It's an accident of the epoch in which we live that (at times during the moon's orbit when it lines up) that the Moon is the same angular diameter as the Sun in the sky.

The means that at the peak, you can see the Suns' corona. This makes an erie light compared to normal sunlight.

The temperature will drop a little, and the wind can pick up a little -- this is the effect of the sudden relative cold spot in the umbra.

All of that can be cool to see.

This is just hypothetical. I am not saying anyone now-jerks or otherwise.

no. someone would do it so that their friend would not be getting any sex either. That way they would both be miserable sexless spinsters in waiting in desperate need of schtupping.

Posted by: Billy Joel at August 18, 2017 08:51 PM

I guess I misunderstood the term or maybe it's changed. I thought it meant when a woman puts the brakes on a guy's sexual advances without telling him outright.

I was trying to figure out why you were surprised your platonic friend wanted to stay platonic.

So now it means a third party interferes? But why is your friend even around when you're picking up women? Shouldn't you have a wingman for that?

Men, such mysterious and intriguing creatures you be!

There was a partial eclipse in the area where I was a kid. Never bothered to look, but you could tell the light was 'wrong'.

A total eclipse would be spooky if you didn't know what it was.

There was a SciFi story many years ago where the fictional planet had three suns (not Vin Diesel in Pitch Black) and one day in every thousand years, the suns lined up and half the planet had no sun in the sky.

Everyone went nuts. Of course, this can't happen here. We're educated people with a long history of solar eclipse es. So I'm not worried.

Of course, like almost anything related to sex, it is also used as a metaphor. Some comic, I think it was Cheech Marin, said that Johnnie Carson was a cockblocker. He meant that Carson would have comedians on The Tonight Show, but that Carson would try to top them while interviewing them. He would interrupt them or otherwise interfere with their rhythm so that Carson would look good and get the laughs instead of the guest who was looking to get known and get his break.

Lexington. He was a gunner's mate in the 50 cal position on the port side forward. The 3 inch guns just aft of him suffered a direct hit from a dive bomber. He saw the bomb and thought it was headed directly for him. At the last second it passed over his head.

At one point it was dragging me out to deeper water while I was in the OBGYN chair position.
That was when I spotted a medium sized eel looking for a place to hide.
I instantly had images of my trying to explain to doctors at the hospital how an eel chomped on my nuts or wound up in my butt.
This spurred me to slam my hand down to the floor and hold onto a rock for dear life until the current stopped pulling and I could get out of the water.

411 I've never seen a total solar eclipse, and of course I would like to. I've seen two partial eclipses that were around 90%. One was in 1970 and the other was around 1994.

They were very cool. The sky looked almost like twilight, I could see crescents in the leaves of trees, and the temperature dropped noticeably. The upcoming one will only be about 80% from where I am, but of course I will be watching.

I should have made plans for this one a year or two ago, before the hotels got booked up. But I'm lazy and dislike traveling.

It so happens that I am caring for a very sick cat right now, and honest to God, even if I had reservations I would have to break them. I don't think I could enjoy the two minutes of totality knowing that my beloved Kira was hundreds of miles away.

456 Older friend of mine (passed last year) was a recruit at MCRD-San Diego in November 1941 (yes, enlisted just before Pearl Harbor). His DI told the platoon that he'd be behind the bleachers just after graduation, in case they wanted to "take up any problems they had with him". My friend had been in trouble (lots), had scrubbed the deck inside the DIs' quonset hut, and saw the DI's photo on his desk - Pacific Fleet lightweight boxing champion, something like that. So my friend warned everyone they did *not* want to take the DI up on his generous offer ......

458 My [male relative] was working in a copper smelting plant in 1941. His job was to turn out the red-hot 2000-poung copper ingots after they had cooled from molten white-hot down to mere red-hot. All around him were beyond-immense vats of molten copper which were poured into the vast ingot molds, with globules splattering everywhere; if a big one landed on you, it could be instant death. He said it was literally like being in Hell -- he reckoned it was the worst job on Earth. And it paid something like $3/day.

As a result, he actually joined the Army in July 1941, BEFORE there was a draft, just to get away from the copper smelting plant. He said, "Everyone knew a draft was coming, and I figured if I joined ahead of time, I would have a better gig in the Army," which turned out to be true, to a certain extent.

To him, entering the Army was the biggest relief imaginable, a huge upgrade in employment status.

Because he had joined early, though, he was one of the very very first American troops shipped out to WWII, on the first convoy that landed at Casablanca sometime in early 1942.

459 Tillikum, Arizona Memorial is always crowded. USS Missouri berthed where USS Nevada is also neat to tour but she is modernized to 1980s standards. The museum on Ford Island looks neat, but never got a chance to visit it. If you get on to Hickam, go to PACAF HQ which is the old Hickam Hilton and you will see where the walls are still pocked by cannon and machine gun fire. Tour Hickam and there will be markers at some spots saying things like 'this is where a Japanese fighter crashed.'

If you do get inside PACAF HQ, they have cased on display the flag that was flying on 7 December.

I don't know what a PUA is, but ,no, most women don't want a narcissistic jerks. They can be very attractive and they specialize in making you feel like the most important person in the world-initially-and then it's like roller coaster . Exhilarating, but if it goes on too long it;s nauseating Narcissists never have enough narcissistic supply so they inexplicably drop you and then come back to see if they can reel you back in again. They are absolutely hopeless if you are sick or in trouble. The sex may be good but if they regard you as someone to use it's not worth. And for what's it worth women narcissists are equally bad.

For the past couple of nights I took her to the vet where she got an injection of fluids and was force fed with a syringe. We'll do that again on Sunday, and then on Monday they'll do another blood test to see if there has been any improvement. If not, well... I guess that's about it.

481 The thing is, narcissism is a complicated construct that includes aspects that can be alternatively adaptive (such as self-sufficiency, individualism, self-regard, confidence, a desire to lead, and ambition) and potentially destructive (such as arrogance, entitlement, vanity, lack of empathy, and a tendency towards interpersonal exploitation and manipulation), with these facets often co-existing in the same person.

Forgive a stupid question, but what's the difference
between a lunar eclipse the phases of the moon? Aren't they both
the Earth's shadow falling on the Moon?



Posted by: josephistan
----------
-

The phases happen because the moon moves around the earth monthly (or there-abouts) and the bright parts are those facing the sun while we look at it from the resulting angles. (A galaxy model with a light bulb in the middle makes it easier to visualize.)

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth's shadow runs across the moon. This does not happen every month because the moon's orbit is not lined up with the Earth's obit around the sun. The resulting angles and the timing of orbits determine the occurrence of lunar eclipses.

Maybe you don't want to have along relationship and that;t ehe point of being a PUA People I dated We were either in plays, or worked together or went together or shared some other kind of interest. You seem engaging to me./ Maybe you're not the bar type.

They just think that they are entitled to glasses. My place of business is giving out a few hundred this weekend, but the number of sob stories I heard for glasses annoyed me. Go buy yourself a pair of glasses (although you can't find them in my town it seems). Make a pinhole viewer. We have known about this FOR A YEAR. I bought my mine months ago. I am so annoyed. It was a long day, sorry. Anyway, it was just a small slice of what I know society is falling into. Give me free shit. Take care of me. I can't do it by myself.

The phases happen because the moon moves around the earth monthly (or there-abouts) and the bright parts are those facing the sun while we look at it from the resulting angles. (A galaxy model with a light bulb in the middle makes it easier to visualize.)

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth's shadow runs across the moon. This does not happen every month because the moon's orbit is not lined up with the Earth's obit around the sun. The resulting angles and the timing of orbits determine the occurrence of lunar eclipses.
Posted by: irright at August 18, 2017 10:09 PM (85f6P)


That's a good description.

With the phases of the moon, the sunlit portion is still bright.

In a lunar eclipse, the full moon passes through Earth's shadow and the whole thing is darkened. Usually it takes on a dark coppery red color, but I remember one in the 1990s after a big volcano eruption, where the dust in the atmosphere dimmed it to a dark gray so that it was barely visible to the naked eye in mid-eclipse.

Dad was in college during WWII. Upon completing 3 years, he was eligible for the Navy officer program. Ended up a Tin Can sailor on the Laffey (DD 724) in 45.

He was a gunnery officer the day they got hit by 6 kamikazes and 4 bombs during 22 attacks while on radar picket duty off Okinawa in April 45.

The got towed to the anchorage of Okinawa and repaired for 6 days before heading to Saipan. More repairs, the off to Pearl and more patching up before heading to the shipyard in Seattle.

Dad was transferred to shore duty while at Saipan for the remainder of the war.

After the war, he returned to his small town Ohio college. Things were more...interesting. Many combat vets with broken GAF meters it seems, so much stupidity, as he recalled to me. Heh.

Flashback: When Obama Declared That There Were "Many Sides" to Blame for Islamist Terrorism -- Especially Christianity -- Media Not Only Defended Him, But Castigated Critics Who'd Dispute Obama's "Many-Sides-ism"

Let's go all the way back through the mists of time, to a forgotten era of dinosaurs and wizard-kings, an age of wonder and mystery called "February 2015."

In this mythological age, evoking "many sides" to blame for violence was not considered "racist," but in fact was hailed as the very pinnacle of rationality and cosmopolitanism.

Despite the fact that it is always Islamists responsible for Islamist terrorism (see the name; just what it says on the tin), President Lord God Obama proclaimed that many sides were in fact responsible for the rivers of blood spilled by Islamists, including, most notoriously, the Christians.


His latest challenge came Thursday at the National Prayer Breakfast. At a time of global anxiety over Islamist terrorism, Obama noted pointedly that his fellow Christians, who make up a vast majority of Americans, should perhaps not be the ones who cast the first stone.

"Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history," he told the group, speaking of the tension between the compassionate and murderous acts religion can inspire. "And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ."

When Trump spoke of "many sides" offering violence, he was referring to the fact -- the fact -- that antifa thugs attacked the Nazis and, when the cops drove the Nazis from the park, surrounded them and attacked them with apparent police complicity.

When Obama spoke of many sides being to blame, he was going back to... the Crusades between 1100 and 1350 AD. Oh, and, of course, the famous Christian enslavement of Muslims, which did not happen.

The response from the media was not -- get this -- anger and bitter denunciation, but rather a moistened-crotched panting, along with a sneering dismissal of critics of the "many sides" talk as "the usual quarters."

President Obama is drawing some heat -- mostly from the usual quarters -- for invoking the Crusades while talking about Islam and terrorism on Thursday.

At the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, Obama noted there was a time when people mass-murdered in the name of Christianity, too:


And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.

As many were quick to point out, the Catholic church's Crusades began more than 900 years ago, and the Inquisition began in the 13th century.

In the context of Obama's long-standing remarks on Islam and terrorism, though, invoking the Crusades and the Inquisition are wholly unsurprising. What is more surprising is that he hasn't done this sooner.

I'm not surprised the leftwing media has completely ignored its own history of defending "many sides to blame" arguments from the president.

I am surprised, however, that so many members of the #FakeNews "rightwing" media have, however.

More: At the eulogy for five dead Dallas cops assassinated by a Black Lives Matter terrorist, Barack "Many Sides" Obama offered this observation:

"We have all seen this bigotry in our lives at some point," obama told an audience of about 2,500 at a concert hall in Dallas. "None of us is entirely innocent. No institution is entirely immune. And that includes our police departments. We know this."

Telling cops they're racist at a funeral for their own was, by the media's estimation, the height of cosmopolitan nuance and sophistication.

Thanks to Soothsayer for that quote.

47 I don't think Trump was just referring to the fact that it was antifa that attacked the Nazi/KKK people (or that the police forced the Nazi/KKK people to walk into an area where they were surrounded by antifa, which they did).

I think Trump was also referring to the fact that not everyone present to protest the removal of the Lee statue was either a Nazi or a Klan member. Some were just ordinary C-ville citizens who didn't like the idea of their city council removing an historical symbol of Virginia's past in order to placate some loud-mouthed fascist (antifa) and racist (BLM) jerks, most of whom are not even Virginians.

Trump also recognized that not all of the people in the counter-protest were leftist a-holes. Some were reasonable people who simply thought it was wrong that Nazi's and KKK members were showing up for a rally in C-ville, and they wanted to come out and show their opposition to them.

So, as Trump correctly pointed out, there were both good and bad people on both sides.

Of course, the media could not tolerate a situation where Trump was doing the "nuanced" Obama thing -- only his High Royal Flyness, he of the "measured, contemplative, professorial" demeanor could get away with that.

No, Trump is a cartoon as far as the media is concerned, so everyone around him must also be a cartoon as well. Everything is black and white, good guys and bad guys; there are no shades of gray.

And Trump, being evil personified, of course could not be defending marginalized Americans' speech rights, or pointing out that the situation in C-ville was far more complex than the media portrayal of it.

No, Trump is just evil, and so of course what he was doing was blatantly siding with Nazis and the Klan against pure, decent, non-raaaaacist American heroes!

53 The object of hatred justifies the lies and strange alliances. Why do LGBTQ activists support Islamist murderers? Because the Islamist murderers kill lots of Christians and Jews. Why do "right wing media" echo the lies about Trump? Because they hate Trump as much as the lefties. Trump interrupted the grift from which the lefties and the GOP had been profiting. They are doing everything they can, jumping at every chance, to hasten Trump's exit so they can get back to the good old days (for them, anyway).

Just like Russia, the GOPe know it fake yet they all hold hearing after hearing , do tv interviews never defend the President and give legitimacy to the probes and democrats. Rosenstein wouldn't have jumbled so fast to special council if the GOPe wasn't in on it too.

All to weaken Trump and his agenda and his ability to target them or hurt them.. Same thing they did to another insurgency group the tea party.

59 Of all the offensively illiterate and stupid things Obama said - and as we know that's saying something - the inversion/distortion of Christianity in America's role in ending slavery may take the cake (the one baked at gun-point for a gay wedding).

Um, I seem to recall that abolitionism had at its core fanatical Christians, who pretty much drove the argument.

I recall thinking when he said this that wow, the country and "elites" really are so dumbed down that there is little hope. And of course the invocation of the Crusades was also inaccurate, and didn't make the desired point at all.

" Bannon and Trump are on good terms and have always been. Should they not
bicker in public the would be seen as having too comfortable of a
relationship and this is not good for either of them.
Bannon is not a stay around kind of guy if you know anything about his M.O.
He plants a seed, waters it and departs to other pastures.

Secondly this anon is correct.
There is a scandal coming out soon and the DNC could be potentially disbanded.
Once
the first set of arrests start happening TPTB will know exactly where
this is headed and turn the media on full blast even if it crumbles all
their remaining credibility.
TPTB now own the dems and republicans and have spent a lot of money to maintain those pets.

How many times does the man have to prove that he is not going to roll over and play dead just because they wave White Sheets and yell Racism at him.

76 The Inquisition was an attempt to remove questions of heresy from secular authorities and place them under religious investigation. Inquisition courts were some of the first where the accused was given rights such as the presumption of innocence, counsel, the ability to mount a defense, and were manned by some of the most educated men in Europe at the time. You had a better chance of being found innocent under the inquisition than you would a local lord with an eighth grade education, and the punishment was usually not lethal. Bread and water for a time, some sort of penance, those sort of things. The goal of the Church was to save souls, not kill heretics.

A country so, so, so dumbed down and clueless that it thinks "white supremacists" are any sort of important problem, while ignoring the real political violence epidemic that is 100% from the fascists, requires a different communications approach, to be sure, but that consists of much more aggressive and specific communication, not adopting the distortions and bigotry of the press.

110 TY one and all for the well wishes. I was terrified about her surgery. She was an Rh baby at birth and had to have her entire blood supply replaced. She has clotting issues to this day. Minor surgery for her is a real concern and major surgery is a true risk. She is 35 months and 2 weeks younger than I am. I walked and talked very early. My parents would always talk about how when they would turn the car onto the street where the hospital was, I would start screaming and crying over and over again, "Please, please, please, don't hurt the baby."

123 An impeachment would be the best thing that could happen to Trump. There's no way they have the votes or even a real charge to remove him from office.

Clinton got a huge popularity boost when he was impeached, and they have absolutely nothing on Trump except "he makes me mad!"

128 So, is the media JUST as stupid as Obama, or did they simply ignore history when Bammykins mentioned the Crusades? Because anyone with a grasp of history knows the Crusades were a response to ... yup, aggressive Muslim expansion.

I can believe that 57-states "corpseman" Obama couldn't be bothered to have ever learned it, but the entire Leftist media, too?

I think their sin was worse. Obama is just stupid, the Leftist Media puts Narrative before all else.

Colossians 3:22 is the passage that they usually cite for this, IIRC.

"Slaves, be obedient in every way to the people who, according to human reckoning, are your masters; not only when you are under their eye, as if you had only to please human beings, but wholeheartedly, out of respect for the Master."

The funny thing is, the Church has long been an opponent of enslaving fellow Christians, and since the goal was the conversion of the whole world to Christianity, eventually slavery would have to end.

your support goes to who and what?

Not sure. Not so many positive responses to those continuous fund raising emails I expect.

Feelings cannot be directly controlled. Just relaying how my Trump enthusiasm took a hit.

Whatever Bannon has to contribute, a position in the White House would make it more effective.

Hear me out:
He went straight to Breitbart...back to his base. Could this be the beginning of a new massive party that will crush the democrats and the republicans. He couldn't do that in the White House...but he can now with Trump's blessings.

I have to believe they are still fighting together to save our country from the freaking insane seditious lunatics.

307 Christianity has always been correctible, because its creeds have always been moral. So even when various Christian communities have done evil things, there was always pushback. Not so with Islam. Christianity has a gravitational pull in one direction, and Islam in another direction. That is why things are as they are.

To repost something from the Federalist Papers I posted earlier:

In 1786, Jefferson and John Adams met with Tripoli's ambassador to Great Britain. They asked this 'diplomat' by what right his nation attacked American ships and enslaved her citizens and why the Muslims held such hostility toward this new nation, with which neither Tripoli nor any of the other Barbary Coast nations had any previous contact. The answer was quite revealing. Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja (the ambassador) replied that Islam:

"Was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Qur'an, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise."

Try to stay positive and realize that the media are gaslighting us 24/7. The Lefties have been burrowing into the woodwork of American society for a 100 years.

Its going to take a prolonged period to reverse the damage; having a POTUS willing to wrestle in the mud with these foes of individual liberty is a good first step. Having President Trump show up during your GOP primary and say "that guy's a piece of crap, throw the bum out," terrifies those of GOP content to line their pockets.

Worst comes to worse and the American experiment fails, be mentally prepared to be those bastards' worst nightmare.

366 I, personally, think they are doubling and tripling down on Antifa, etc. because they feel things slipping. We now have political forces like 4Chan and Reddit made up almost entirely of Millennials who are actively taking them on over their crap. A majority of Millennials oppose abortion. I think 4Chan will get that statue of Seattle Lenin and it will be a thing of beauty--not that I advocate for the destruction of private property because I don't, but, revenge is a sweet sweet bitch.

419 Skip - to respond to your question about movies from previous thread.

Don't recall title of Estonian movie on Estonian WWII SS unit - should be find-able on UTube.

Russian/Soviet movies -

Road to Berlin (no, no Bob Hope or Bing Crosby) is a nice "little" movie, very simple, about a young Soviet officer wrongly accused of desertion. An Uzbek soldier is assigned to take him away from the front for his hearing before a tribunal. Nicely done. Should be version with English sub-titles, but not sure.

Shtrafbat (Penal Battalion) - 11-part series. Not sure if there's a sub-titled version available. Pretty well done. Band of Brothers-ish vibe (with much more modest production), follows group of soldiers sentenced to a penal unit, and their CO.

Stavka - series. Starts with mil. intel trainees, who get caught up in the Soviet invasion of Finland. Haven't watched much but I think it follows them through the big war.

It is difficult, but you can't worry about events you can not control.

And it was interesting to see how post-Soviet Russian fictional treatment of WWII "went there" in terms of all kinds of historically real anti-commie and anti-Soviet sentiment.

(this just spurred a politically-incorrect though - even here at the HQ - about Soviet soldiers fighting for a regime they hated, but really fighting just to protect home and family ..... Glimov is the embodiment of this whole thought in the series .... and how that might apply to a different war, much discussed here recently)

8 The leftist Alameda County DA -- after pointedly refusing at first to charge the Antifa bike-lock assailant, and only doing so after intense pressure and video proof of his guilt going viral - -just announced that he plans to throw "Based Stickman" (a Trump supporter) into jail for EIGHT YEARS for merely CARRYING an America flag that could be used as a weapon:

http://www.sfgate.com/crime/article/based-stickman-kyle-chapman-faces-prison-11943171.php

Notice also how the SF Chronicle casually describes the Trump supporters as "white nationalists." All according to the script:

"A Daly City man charged this week with possessing a lead-filled stick that he allegedly used to hit counterprotesters during a March rally in Berkeley could face up to eight years in state prison because of a prior violent felony, officials said Friday.

Since his arrest after the pro-President Trump rally March 4, 41-year-old Kyle Chapman has taken up the nickname "Based Stickman" and attracted a following of supporters in online white nationalist forums."

Posted by: Moron Robbie


There was long a false assumption that the Vikings intentionally gave misleading descriptions to Greenland and Iceland to confuse any other potential rival groups thinking of competing for their land.

But now we know that the theory was wrong - -back in the 900s - 1200s (ish), Greenland actually WAS "greener" than Iceland, and the Viking built farming colonies there, because of the "Medieval Warming Period." But then we entered into the "Little Ice Age" and a lot of the good farming land in Greenland froze over -- whereas Iceland remained habitable due to geothermal vents keeping it comparatively warm.

38 Fine. But

Greenland actually WAS "greener" than Iceland, and the Viking built farming colonies there, because of the "Medieval Warming Period." But then we entered into the "Little Ice Age" and a lot of the good farming land in Greenland froze over = green

whereas Iceland remained habitable due to geothermal vents = comparatively warm

Finland = stabby peaceful Muslims

Doesn't offer quite the same comedy value.

Looks like they are not charging him with assault or battery or the like, just possession. If it is the case that the so called weapon was in fact a flag pole, that will come out at trial. The prosecution will introduce it as evidence and then he can make his case.

I know next to nothing about the different kinds of flagpoles available, but if the object is a real honest to goodness flagpole, he should be able to demonstrate that. On the other hand, if he took a lead pipe and attached a flag to it, he may have a tougher time convincing the jury.

67 While zombie's general assertion about the last administration doing "targeted" resettlement of refugees or other immigrants, I think the Somali settlement in MN long predates 2008.

As to the quite logical "um, WTF?" about putting *Somalis* in *MN*, a lot of refugee settlement has been based primarily on availability of sponsoring organizations. So there is often no apparent logic in terms of climate, geography, etc.

72 In many Muslim countries, acting upon homosexual feelings -- the behavior itself -- is condemned and subject to legal punishment. The specific punishment varies among jurists, ranging from jail time or flogging, to the death penalty. In Islam, capital punishment is only reserved for the most grievous crimes which hurt society as a whole.

Some jurists view homosexuality in that light, particularly in countries such as Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and Yemen.

If you follow the whole story...:

Antifa's long practice has been to bring assault-poles to protests, and then to disguise them as "flags" or "signs" by attaching a flag or protest sign to them. Then they'd use the pole to hit victims.

Sick of this, the alt-right people then told Antifa that they would do the same -- that Antifa wasn't fooling anybody with their gambit.

But then the Berkeley police finally wised up and --after the (earlier, less-documented) fight when Antifa really did use their flags to inflict serious damage -- announced that ALL heavy poles of any type were "discouraged" or some such wording, including sign-sticks and flag-poles.

Anyway, that's just some context -- it's not like Kyle Chapman dreamt up the idea of a heavy flagpole out of the blue of his own accord -- it was all part of an escalating "disguised weapon" arms race initiated by Antifa.

He may or may not be technically "guilty" therefore of carrying a weapon; the whole point is the biased and uneven enforcement of the extreme-leftist DA's office, who could have just as easily charged dozens of Antifa for the same crime at this protest and countless prior protests -- but have decidedly chosen not to do so. heck, they wouldn't even charge the Antifa guy committing attempted murder, despite being on video committing the crime, until they were literally forced into it by public pressure.

125 He may or may not be technically "guilty" therefore of carrying a weapon; the whole point is the biased and uneven enforcement of the extreme-leftist DA's office, who could have just as easily charged dozens of Antifa for the same crime at this protest and countless prior protests -- but have decidedly chosen not to do so. heck, they wouldn't even charge the Antifa guy committing attempted murder, despite being on video committing the crime, until they were literally forced into it by public pressure.

126 Skip, saw a fairly good Estonian movie about an Estonian SS unit, as the Soviets launched their offensive in the Baltics. Sort of got me started on watching Russian WWII series/movies for language practice (though obviously the Estonian movie had nothing I could understand). Visited Estonia once, long ago. Very nice. Both Americans and Soviets felt like it was *almost* leaving the USSR.

It does.

US immigration policy for refugees expressly deposits refugees in low density low crime portions of the nation.

So that's why you have Somali in Minnesota, Zimbabweans in Kansas and Hmong in Colorado.

I work with a girl who came to the US as a refugee from Zimbabwe, she and her family were resettled in Kansas.

The theory is that you don't resettle refugees in densely populated, crime filled big cities because they are coming from conflict already.

76 Why are Democrats so dramatically accelerating their attacks on America?

Because they see Trump's conservative judicial picks coming. They see the Supreme Court slipping from their grasp for decades. They see their schemes being routinely knocked down by the highest court in the land.

So, it's time to completely discredit America and our nation's founding. It's time to discredit the authors of that pesky Constitution. No longer will it be a "living, breathing" document. It has to be burned, and burned fast and completely, lest they be forced to acknowledge the freedoms and protections it enshrines.

We are truly in a war for the survival of our nation.

PRAY FOR AMERICA.

The best character in ALL of the series is Rosaria Dawson's, and she is such a left wing nitwit, I don't want to watch anything she is in now. I enjoyed the first Daredevil, and I enjoyed the Punisher and Foggy, but could have done without any of the other characters in the show. Iron Fist was just horrid. Jessica Jones had some good moments, but not enough to justify it.

Pack your bags because the tide is getting high

It's just the captain and crew jumping off of the mast
All aboard on the ghost ship of cannibal rats


don't forget these UK headlines

Ghost ship carrying cannibal rats could be heading for Britain
A deserted cruise liner which is believed to have been drifting around the North Atlantic for a year carrying nothing but hordes of rats could be heading for British shores, it has been claimed

What I hate with the heat of a thousand suns is the documentary that says it's going to be "true crime" or whatever, and it's a bunch of reenactments.

Egad, I hate reenactments. Either you have access to the crime scene photos and archival video, with interviews of actual folks who were there, or you're just rehashing stuff to be found elsewhere.

Hate it.

Principal' name was Cox. He was a dick - cancelled HS graduation summer before senior year because last class misbehaved during ceremony. Bunch of guys spent the year creating "chef boni" art - large dick sculpture on front lawn w/first snow, red carpet for Homecoming royalty cut in shape of a dick (surprise when rolled out), large penis sculpture hung from rafters in gym, etc. Best was the signs at games: "We love our Cox!"

108 68 The last great documentary I remember watching was one produced by Tom Hanks' son about the history of Tower Records.
Posted by: Mark1971


I just saw a really interesting one:

"The Russian Cuckoo."

It's a documentary about a semi-insane Ukrainian artist who becomes convinced that the Chernobyl meltdown was intentionally ordered by mid-level Soviet authorities to hide the fact that a massively expensive military missile-defense system (installed next to the reactor) had failed and was dysfunctional. His theory was that they wanted to render the area radioactive so that the radar system couldn't be inspected, and thus their incompetence would not be exposed and they wouldn't be sent to the gulag.

What's interesting about it is NOT that the viewer ever gets convinced oft he theory, but rather we learn just how much the "Soviet mindset" still prevails in much of Russia and the Ukraine. To this day, people are too terrified to speak about "official secrets" for a nation that doesn't even exist any more. People live in sweat-drenched fear of the KGB, to this very day. Truly amazing. Plus, a lot of interesting info, revealed by the few insiders willing to talk. about Soviet military secrets. Theyn invented an "over-the-horizon" global radar system that couldn't detect anything airborne, in the world, all from a single gargantuan antenna next Chernobyl. That part is real. What apparently happened is that the antenna and its signal disrupted all sorts of other communications, and so had to be "re-tuned," after which it no longer worked. Anyway, worth checking out.

120 "best of enemies" a 2015 documentary about the william f. buckley/gore vidal "debates" during the 1968 conventions is interesting. it includes the explosive exchange:

vidal: the only sort of pro- or crypto nazi that i can think of is yourself.

buckley: now listen, you queer, stop calling me a crypto-nazi or i'll sock you in the goddamn face, and you'll stay plastered.

buckley later regretted the outburst, but i think he had it coming. appropriate today, given recent events.

187 If there is anything less in need of "conspiracy" explanation on earth than Soviet incompetence with nuclear energy, I can't think of it.

I thought "conspiracy" stuff applied to things that were otherwise inexplicable, or suspicious. Chernobyl was utterly and mundanely Soviet in all respects.

196 generally, "best of enemies" has received middling reviews both from left and right. it's fairly even handed but superficial and unfortunately ends with a slight towards buckley, as might be expected.

it implies he was maybe gay himself and it totally misrepresents the outcome of his slander suit against esquire magazine, stating he dropped the suit rather than that esquire settled with an apology and paid his attorney fees; esquire re-ran the vidal article that slandered buckley, he sued again and that time settled for another apology, fees + damages!

Posted by: rhomboid


Here's the theory -- what do you think:



Apparently, it is documented that the operators of the reactor were conducting a series of stupid (i.e. unnecessary) experiments on the reactor, trying to increase output levels, and realized halfway through that the experiments were actually dangerous and could lead to a meltdown if continued. So they decided to end the series of experiments.

AND THEN, everyone concedes there was a call from Moscow to the control room, in the hours before what became the meltdown. Few will admit to what was said in that call, but some say that the call commanded -- as in a military command that could be disobeyed -- to continue the experiments as originally planned. The control room operators protested at first, saying, "Nyet! It we push it too far, it could cause a meltdown," but they were overridden and COMMANDED to continue.

The question the movie pursues is: Why? Why did someone in Moscow consciously try to cause a meltdown at Chernobyl.

The then discover that the guy who invented the over-the-horizon radar was rewarded for his patriotism by being made a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party -- someone who had the authority to make such a call and make such an order. When his invented turned out, eventually to be dysfunctional, he was afraid of losing his political position and possibly even his life, so he intentionally ordered the meltdown so that the dysfunction of the radar system could not be documented (since the antenna was right next to the reactor).

I'm not saying that I myself believe this theory -- what's interesting is that they have all this real James O'Keefe-style secret camera video of former Soviet spymasters and scientists talking about their fears and attitudes surrounding the issue. Really fascinating.

267 My memory - admittedly vague at this point - of the Chernobyl autopsy was very different. Simple (if catastrophic) incompetence in controlling the reaction.

Also, seems very doubtful that a Central Committee member would be in the line of command for a power plant, or have any suck there. It was only a few of the senior members who had much power outside their narrow area, and doubtful a defense sector engineer would be any more than a low-ranking, more or less symbolic CC member.

308 I took off for Japan a day or two after the tsunami. Illustrating about the level of geographic and practical knowledge one has grown to expect, everybody was "OMG tsunami chaos nukyler crisis eleventy!!!".

A few of the less stupid ones sort of got it when I explained it was like going to San Diego when Portland was having some sort of crisis.

Was darkly amusing though, watching TEPCO and the nat. govt. more or less put on a workshop of how *not* to handle public information in a crisis, every night on the news.

Hmmm. Is it loud? Sounds like it could almost be used as a beacon.


It's about an S9+20db here on the left coast sometimes but, very intermittent. It is definitely an OTHR signal. There is a well known Russian Navy beacon on 7.038mhz with a repetitive CW letter 'P' dit dah dah dit that I hear in the early morning. Very low power transmission I assume.

312 Al Sharpton--
I must say that the Al Sharpton interview on Charlie Rose was not the worst thing I've ever endured. I have no use for Charlie Rose, and the (hoping-to-run-for-President, I bet) historian/publisher who was also interviewed was tedious. If Al would be like this more of the time, I think he and Trump could get on a similar page.
