Everything you think you know about the Scopes trial is false

Morons Throughout History

There's a reason he wasn't known as 'Peter the Just Alright'

Peter the Great founded The All-Joking, All-Drunken Synod of Fools and Jesters that was headed by the All-Joking and All-Drunken Prince-Pope and whose members were required ‘to get drunk every day and never go to bed sober’.

Sounds a lot better than the Elks, tbh.

41 After the Scopes trial was over, John Scopes became disgusted with teaching and became a geologist, and went to go make his fortune in the East Texas Oil Field in the 1930's. in the 1950's he was a senior executive with United Gas in Shreveport, which is where my father in law got to know him when he was a young man just starting in the business.
He loved to tell about Mr. Scopes was extremely intelligent, but also had a very fiery and explosive temper, and he had long since grown so sick of people asking him about the trial that he would erupt into a fierce tirade if anyone was foolish enough to bring it up in his presence, enough to make grown men wilt.
So my f-i-l loved to relate how their favorite trick with new hires was to take them aside on their first or second day, and tell them "hey do you know that Mr. Scopes up there on the second floor was the one in that famous Scopes monkey trial? He LOVES to talk about it, he will think the world of you if you will go into his office and ask him about it!" And they would send the hapless newbie into the lions den while they all hid outside in the hall, listening and waiting for the explosion to go off.

It's been said that the "Boresight" mode on a USAF AWACS radar, would be lethal to anyone on board any aircraft caught in it's beam, out to a range of about two miles or such.

At two miles, the AWACS operator may have to hold them in "lock" for thirty or forty seconds.

Quarter mile? Much shorter time.

I am really, really picky about live albums. But Grand Funk Caught in the Act is brilliant.

KISS Alive (the first one, the rest are shite)

and Thin Lizzy Live and Dangerous.

Live albums are rare now. But most of the metal bands I've seen live over the years are tight and spot on. It often comes down to the vocalist. Death Angel, Testament, Slayer, Megadeth, Helloween, Flotsam and Jetsam, etc.

What it boils down to is how a band sounds live in real time vs carefully guided studio time.

Metal bands are very tight, in my opinion.

99 It's been said that the "Boresight" mode on a USAF AWACS radar, would be lethal to anyone on board any aircraft caught in it's beam, out to a range of about two miles or such.

At two miles, the AWACS operator may have to hold them in "lock" for thirty or forty seconds.

Quarter mile? Much shorter time.

Inverse square law is a bitch, up close.

That's when it was all about having fun at the ball park. That little dude wasn't offended and probably made a ton of kids happy with an autograph. Hell you could get an autograph just by yelling around the dugout. Old Sox park was a lot of fun despite the I beams blocking views. How many parks had piss troughs?

121 Before y'all start dissing that Chinese AWACS capabilities based on that article.

How much you wanna bet it's a mis-translation of one kind or another?

Do I think it'd have the range or capability of any American AWACS? Or even the Euro one atop their Airbus contraption?

Hardly.

But it's likely about as good as whatever Clinton sold to 'em back in the '80s.

So, rather than underrate and laugh at it.

What's say we just do plausible deniability, and F-22 it from maximum range?

The '22 doesn't have to emit, it just hands the missile off with the up-to-the-second update from the Satellite Downlink, and the missile goes a huntin' until it calculates "proximity".

The it's internal radar goes active, at which time the Chinese have time *maybe* to drop their chopsticks.

189 Just read the entire Ted Kennedy's car drove itself off a bridge thread, and nobody discussed the truly outrageous part of the story, so I will here: Consider Kennedy's crimes DUI, (OK couldn't prove that one because...) Hit and run involving a fatality, and failure to stop and render aid. In Texas that would buy you 15 years hard time in state prison, and a felony conviction.


For Kennedy in the Peoples Paradise of Massholia: Judge Boyle sentenced him to two months suspended.- no fine, no suspended driver's license (which I understand he didn't even have anyway) - zilch, nada, zip beeb, skip out of jail free as a bird, for leaving a terrified girl to slowly suffocate to death, desperately hoping for help that never came, while she clawed at the windows of the Oldsmobile with her fingernails.



What Ted Kennedy did was despicable, there is no word in the English language appropriate to describe the actions of that Masshole judge

253 Fuck the Left.

Not the Left, necessarily - the former wife of Joe Kennedy II was furious after the Archdiocese of Boston granted him an annulment, concluding that he wasn't mature enough to understand the sacrament of marriage (this, after they had had two kids).

She wrote a book demonstrating that basically, you could always get an annulment from the Archdiocese of Boston if you were rich and powerful enough.

After ten years, the Vatican undid the annulment.

275 The beginning of The Godfather:

Bonasera: I believe in America. America has made my fortune. And I raised my daughter in the American fashion. I gave her freedom but I taught her never to dishonor her family. She found a "boy friend," not an Italian. She went to the movies with him. She stayed out late. I didn't protest. Two months ago he took her for a drive, with another boy friend. They made her drink whiskey and then they tried to take advantage of her. She resisted. She kept her honor. So they beat her. Like an animal. When I went to the hospital her nose was broken. Her jaw was shattered, held together by wire. She couldn't even weep because of the pain. But I wept. Why did I weep? She was the light of my life. A beautiful girl. Now she will never be beautiful again.

[He breaks down at this point, and the Don gestures to his son to get him a drink]

Bonasera: Sorry...

[He regains his composure and carries on]

Bonasera: I went to the police, like a good American. These two boys were brought to trial. The judge sentenced them to three years in prison, and suspended the sentence. Suspended sentence! They went free that very day! I stood in the courtroom like a fool, and those two bastards, they smiled at me. Then I said to my wife, "For justice, we must go to Don Corleone."

281 The best arrangement for peeing at a group venue that I have ever seen is at the University of Delaware's stadium. The walls on 3 sides of the back part of the men's room are covered in marble to a height of about 5'. Water continuously flows down the wall into a drain that runs along the bottom of the marble. As many men as can fit in the space can relieve themselves at once, although in practice everyone gets some elbow room, of course.

I was at games 4 and 5 in Philly in 1983 when the Orioles beat the Phillies. (The 1950 Phillies were called the Whiz Kids because they were young, and the 1983 version were nicknamed the Wheeze Kids because they were old.)

At the end of Game 5 when the triumphant Orioles were mobbing each other on the field, my friend wanted to leave right away, but I said, no, I want to take in the scene. Every baseball fan in America is watching this right now. It's the only time I ever got to see that in person.

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

The text is cribbed from WikiP except they say M rather than KM. A bad copy job. The radar is a Chinese design. (Israel sold a radar to China for the original spec but US pressure forced cancellation.) The 2013 version is believed to have a new and improved Chinese radar (which the cited specs refer to) as a replacement of the 2003 first gen version.

I believe, if memory serves, that there was a famous story about Mr. Veetch that at one point he was in the front office, by himself, and the phone rang and he picked it up. Someone had called the front office thinking it was the box office. The potential patron asked: "What time's the game?" Without missing a beat Veetch asked: "What time can you get here?"

413 Yeah, the Scopes Trial is not at all as advertised. The biggest point I would make is that it was more about social Darwinism and eugenics than evolution. Generally, evolution and social Darwinism were seen as two sides of the same coin: you accepted both or neither. The biology textbook that was required by the state was Civic Biology by George William Hunter. It was more about animal husbandry and the like (I haven't read most of it) but it did address evolution and specifically taught social Darwinism, eugenics, and white supremacy as a part of it. So people were objecting to having these things taught to their children, and being taught as science. The way I put it to my class is "So the ignorant, racist, Southern hicks were actually taking a stand against racism and white supremacy."

Also, I was surprised the Esquire folks left out the 1979 Phillies "Saturday Night Specials"-- all burgundy except for the white "P" on the jerseys.

Never bought anything from Chewy, but apparently someone did, using our credit card number. About $80 bucks worth. Called Chewy. Within 5 minutes the charge was reversed and the customer service dude on the other end of the line reported the fraudulent purchase. So I can vouch for their excellent customer service, even having never been a customer.

Related. There are no "anti-gun" dogs.

But millions of bird dogs, hog hunting dogs, panther hunting dogs, coon dogs, deer driving dogs, wounded game tracking dogs, rat killing dogs, and field trial dogs.

I surely hope that someone at Chewy has punched the numbers, and come to the proper conclusions.

Here's some more of the new Berkeley language code:

That means 'manpower' will become 'human effort' or 'workforce.'

'She,' 'her,' 'he,' and 'him' will be replaced by 'they' and 'them,' according to the measure approved Tuesday by the City Council.

Furthermore, in an ordinance read out on the day, 'firemen' is set to become 'firefighters.'

Terms like fraternity or sorority will be changed to 'collegiate Greek system residence.'

Also, other terms that will be changed include pregnant woman or women. It will be switched to pregnant employees as well as brothers and sisters being switched to sibling.

Odd part, a woman who is so devout muslim had a Christian pastor do that civil ceremony to her brother. Gee I wonder why.? Hmm,

Posted by: neverenoughcaffeine at July 19, 2019 08:45 PM

From what I can tell. Neither Omar (Ilhan) Nor Elmi are actually part of the family of Omar's but they are brother and sister from another family who the Omar's claimed were theirs to get them asylum. But Ilhan got asylum and her brother Elmi did not but Britain took him in. In order to get Elmi to school in the US she needed to get him in and that's where the fraud came in. It's pretty damming evidence, she actually committed immigration fraud twice, once by pretending to be in a family she wasn't part of and then a sham marriage to her brother to get him in.

https://gellerreport.com/2019/07/ilhan-fathersomalian-

The Nur family was well connected in the country led by the Marxist regime. Young Omar went to kindergarten at age four, their family lived in a secure compound in Mogadishu. When the regime was overtaken, the family caught a plane to escape the country. The average GDP per capita in Somalia was only $187 dollars in 2010 twenty years after they fled the country when the regime fell. Obviously, Nur's family was a privileged family.

174 Diverticulitis is extremely painful. Ended up in the hospital via ambulence once and was there for 4 days. It is an infection in one of the little pockets in the colon(diverticulosis) which gets closed up and infected. Because that area is surrounded by liquid, every time you move it jogs the infected area and causes ectreme pain. You need antibiotics to cure the infection. If that pocket bursts outward, you can die just like a burst appendix. I think the doctor is an idiot.
They try to tell you that you need to avoid certain foods but that is a bunch of bunk although lots of roughage in your diet is good.

From what I can tell. Neither Omar (Ilhan) Nor Elmi are actually part of the family of Omar's but they are brother and sister from another family who the Omar's claimed were theirs to get them asylum. But Ilhan got asylum and her brother Elmi did not but Britain took him in. In order to get Elmi to school in the US she needed to get him in and that's where the fraud came in. It's pretty damming evidence, she actually committed immigration fraud twice, once by pretending to be in a family she wasn't part of and then a sham marriage to her brother to get him in.

The most effectual Top Cat!
Who's intellectual close friends get to call him T.C.
Providing it's with dignity.

Top Cat!
The indisputable leader of the gang.
He's the boss, he's a pip, he's the championship.
He's the most tip top,
Top Cat.

Yes he's a chief, he's a king,
But above everything,
He's the most tip top,
Top Cat.
Top Cat!

201 I would avoid popcorn and things like raspberried that have small seeds in the future and high fibre foods are good. After several bouts of it, I got the doctor to let me have a prescription for Cipro and Metrazonidol in the house so if I feel a bout coming on, I can start the meds right away. It does require both antibiotics in fairly high dosage. However, have been on low carb keto type diet and haven't has a bout in many years.

205 She committed immigration fraud only in the eyes of White
Nationalists and their petty "laws", she should be an inspiration to all
future Democrat voters as they ululate "By Any Means Necessary" while
they are waltzing across the remnants of our borders!


I can't help but wonder how the Immigration Department, DHS and the DOJ feel about the America-hating brotherf*cker Omar committing fraud all the way into a seat in Congress. Has anybody mentioned just how many laws she's broken all together? The last number I heard was 8 counts of perjury, but there has to be more, including several felonies. She should be sitting in a jail cell right now. You know damned good and well if it were any of us normals, that's exactly where we'd be right now.


Somebody needs to start talking this up and making a gigantic stink about it and by "somebody" I mean the GOPe. Every time a Republican gets in front of a mic or a camera, this should be the first thing they say: "Democrats are the party of illegals and illegality. They refuse to abide by the laws that the rest of us do every day.

Isn't there some "fruit of the poison tree" principle here? If Daddy committed immigration fraud to get himself and two kids into the USA, isn't the kids' citizenship defective, too? And if Ilhan Omar never legally changed her name to "Omar", isn't she guilty of personation? Wouldn't a passport in that name be a fraudulent document?

Once for me. The wife and I stayed with the horses till about three in the morning and by that time it was getting close. I said we've got to go in.

It was pretty close but it didn't come through the runs and the horses stayed put. A couple of 100' pines went down out in the pasture. That was close enough.

366 Don't fall for the BS about automatic transmissions being awesome because they make you faster as you sit in traffic jams in your $100K car. Yes drivers are faster on tracks, but for most people that tenth of a second on a mountain road where no one cares is less important than the visceral feeling of shifting through the gears.

The automakers want, and push, automatics because MPG is easier to predict for the feds.

Add to that people not wanting to drive anymore and it's a perfect storm.

In which they should have had 3 maybe four runs total but no the fucking dReds SS decides to get fancy with a glove flip when he should have thrown to first for the out and then Puig throws a moonshot for RF to 3rd when he should have grown to second keeping the runner at first, Joey V getting lazy TWICE with a non stretch at first and an error trying to behind instead of getting in front of the ball and then Hughes dumbass can pitch ahead to save his life and you can only live so long 2-0 / 3-1 without getting beat up. As you can tell, being a dReds fan is frustrating. They deserved to get their balls punched. So mad I changed the damn station.

380 Val Lewton's two Cat People movies are far more psychological.

Irina's fear of being rejected since she is a foreigner from Jugoslavia drives her into becoming what does make her husband reject her - an animalistic killer.

The second one, the husband has a new life with a wife and a daughter. But the daughter is out of sync with the world and her guardian angel is Irina. It is all about the little girl finding herself while surrounded by adults with their own issues.

Pretty decent Black Mirror episode with Miley in it.
She plays a pop star (of course), Ashley O, with a new doll out, the 'Ashley Too', with an imprint of her personality on it. Add an obsessive fan, and an ultra-controlling Aunt/Manager, and it's pretty good.

Oh, My: Capital Police Strongly Imply That, Despite the Squad's Claims That They Are the Subjects of Intolerable Death Threats, They're Not Receiving More Threats Than Many Others

Via Karen Townsend at Hot Air (yeah I know but she's okay), it seems as though The Squad might be employing the crybully tactic of "damselling" made popular by feminist Anita Sarkesian but then perfected by femmy David French.

The threat assessment regarding members of the squad, who have recently clashed with President Trump, remains low compared to some other lawmakers.

One source told Fox News that even though the four had been in the news a great deal, they were still low-profile, freshman members.

Some lawmakers' significant others are more worried about safety than the lawmakers themselves.

There is concern in the security ranks that if the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) responds to the "noise" surrounding the squad, it may actually miss more bona fide threats against other lawmakers.

"Damselling" is internet slang for being a constant attention whore and drama cyclone and always claiming you're under attack, usually to gain sympathy, White Knights, and even money (especially through Patreon donations) and jobs (from leftwing media looking for leftwing "victims" of the right).

Anita Sarkeesian is a woman who inserted herself into the video game industry as a consultant to "help" game developers avoid misogynism. When Gamergate erupted, she leaped into it.
Sadly *cough* she was recently forced to shut down her non-profit consulting business as the three employees (including herself) on the payroll were apparently just too much for the company's shoestring (/sarcoff 1.6 million, iirc) budget.

98 Update

Just got off phone with Dad. He started having chest pains yesterday evening and Mom and him went into the hospital. They did all the tests once he was whisked in the emergency room. He said 'chest pains' and the staff went into overdrive to get him admitted.

They put a stint in. Brother thinks above the heart, my brother is such a moron sometimes... They also gave Dad a shot in the side of the abdomen to help keep the blood thin and such, he was told not to touch it, and it is itching like crazy.

But if everything checks out, he will be released tomorrow.

Thank you Horde for your prayers. Though everything looks good, being a near miss and all that. I still feel like I am being torn up inside just thinking about what could have been.

99 Too bad Andrew Breitbart is no longer around, because I'm pretty sure he would have shown up at the Minneapolis airport with camera and mike with several questions for Omar's fan club.

As for the death threats, I would bet good money that AOC, unlike her three fellow horses asses, truly believes she is in danger. Anyone who says the world will end in 12 years and show up at a fenced vacant lot screaming and crying needs significant psychiatric help.

100 Leftwingers on the internet are always claiming they're getting "death threats" but for some reason they're never able or williing to produce them.

Often they take something like "DIAF" (die in a fire) as a "threat," even thought it's obviously just a "fuck you."

They also construe "fuck you" as a "rape threat."

Whatever it was closed the Permian? Let's stop THAT from happening. It probably wasn't Mr Dimetrodon building too many natural-gas powered power plants.

189 I don't usually like the verbing of nouns, and the willy-nilly creation of new words, but this word "damselling" is an exception.

Very efficient -- it conveys a lot with a few letters. Its meaning is intuitive. And it has an elegant ring to it.

199 They define "threat" as anyone who disagrees with them or points out their idiocy. So, yeah- threats galore.





See also 'unsafe.'





'Unsafe' somehow implies they're in danger, when it's merely being
challenged. One more way the Left lies in pursuit of it's goals.


They're intellectually and emotionally stunted yet they masquerade as adults. They just have the merest toehold on reality, and as such are wholly unsuited for office.
If they're that weak against words, how can they possibly stand up to a real, existential threat? Hint: they can't.

236 Heart attack anecdote:

I had 5-6 episodes of bad heartburn over 3-4 days. When it happened again on day 4, I called 911. Ambulance folks ran an EKG here at the house and said it looked "mostly normal" and suggested I contact my doc. The next day it happened again, I called 911 and the same folks arrived. Same thing, "mostly normal" ekg, BP a bit high. They said it was my call as to whether they transported. I said let's just get me in, I need to be checked.

Joked around with the ambulance EMT on the way, all was fine. They got me into a room, hooked me up to an EKG, said everything looked "mostly normal" but they would keep me an hour or so, monitoring.

The heartburn thing started again while I was in my emergency room cubicle. Someone poked their head in when I hollered, took one look at the EKG and called a code STEMI. I had a cardiologist at my side within a couple of minutes. He told me I was having a major heart attack. I had a team on me and was in the cath lab within about 5 minutes. And a constant companion from the minute they called the code all the way through the procedure, of one person standing by with paddles.

Turns out it was the widow maker and by the grace of G_d I was in the emergency room when it happened. 100% blockage in the LAD artery. One stent and four months later I am (more or less) good as new.

My message is: better safe than sorry. Do not ignore what seems like something that will pass.

The craziest thing is, my Mom's had a few heart attacks, my uncle died of the widow maker, my grandpa dropped dead on the spot from a heart attack.

My lifelong understanding of what I "thought" a heart attack would be/feel like did not match up to what I experienced. No severe chest pain, no left arm pain, just a not-too-bad pressure.

I truly was in disbelief when I was told I was having a heart attack.

We are talking about over $20,000 that the district is wanting to collect with the four top deadbeats allegedly owing as much as $450.

Yep. The school district is willing to separate children from their parents for no more than four hundred and fifty dollars.

328 I had the opposite. I thought I was having a heart attack as I was finishing snow-shovelling the sidewalk and driveway (after having eaten a bacon and egg breakfast) but the usual symptoms didn't worsen and I felt much better later. Then I had a similar 'attack' just laying down on a couch a day or so later so I made an appointment with my GP who told me to call 9-1-1 if it happened again before my appt in the next few days. Just before bed I had eaten some dessert bars my mom had made that were peanut butter and mini-marshmallows; laid down and had another bad attack, so I called the ambulance. Luckily, it turned out to be severe GERD but after the 3-day hospitalization and testing, my GP told me again consulting later that you should call 9-1-1 if you ever have heart-attack symptoms.

370 And it appears that the Texas Pirate Dan Crenshaw thinks that we aren't pissing away yet enough tax monies on myths and fairytails.

He wants to piss away $50MM on coming up with ways to "capture carbon".

Give me the damned $50MM and I'll tell you to clear cut old growth forests and replant with new trees.

Otherwise, we are far better served by having increased CO2 in the atmosphere as plants thrive on it and more CO2 means less water used.

So Dan Crenshaw, who was supposed to be the next Great Savior, is another damned Millennial who is scared of the weather.

What a disappointment.

On Thursday, 20-year-old Miss Michigan Kathy Zhu shared a screenshot of Miss World America organizers notifying her that she had been stripped of her title and her ability to compete in the beauty pageant.

"Miss World America's State/National/Chief Director accused me of being racist, Islamophobic, and insensitive. They stripped me of my Miss Michigan title due to my refusal to try on a hijab in 2018, my tweet about black on black gun violence, and 'insensitive' statistical tweets," Zhu tweeted with screenshots of emails from the organizers.

As an aside, at Montauk:
"In December 1960 the large, high-power AN/FPS-35 radar became operational at Montauk. The reflector was 126 feet (38 m) long and 38 feet (12 m) tall, weighing 40 tons..."

This was a rotating antenna. The ball race diameter was 12' 7", 125 balls, each 3" in diameter. The bearing itself weighed 3 1/2 tons. The rotating load was 70 tons.

Green skies are NOT good.

I was at a Saturday festival facilitated by the management company for the hi-rise our company occupied. Lots of food, fun and people.

then the sky turned green.

With a few other people I went inside the building to go show them the vacant top floor that was circled by a balcony so we can watch the storm blow in.

It did. Boy howdy. As soon as the elevator doors opened, the change in the floor space's pressure dropped and the powerful winds that instantly kicked up blew in two of the massive floor-to-ceiling windows wrapping the building.

The rain came blowing in horizontally and was getting the floor wet as far as forty feet from where the windows blew out.

Never did make it out on to the balcony, but it was absolute mayhem down below as tables, chairs, decorations, etc. were violently being blowing around.

I have always been concerned about green skies since.

459 Some of you people need a geography lesson - the Persian Gulf is 600 miles long and roughly 150 miles wide at its widest. The US has a full carrier group in the Gulf, the closing time for an F35 in that space is a blink of an eye.

466 This will probably get willowed, so I may have to repeat it. Mr. Empire has been diagnosed with diverticulosis, and while I've tried to research that on the internet, there are so BLINKIN' many sites I don't know what to look at or believe.
So, hordesourcing. What should someone with that problem eat or not eat? I'm sure some of us here have that problem.
Posted by: Empire1 at July 19, 2019 08:17 PM (ZWw89)

Hi, Empire1. Lots of experience with that! LOL

First of all, if his colonoscopy revealed diverticulOSIS, there is no need to worry. That just means that there are tiny pockets that have formed in the walls of the intestines. They are very common, especially in those who have attained the median Horde age of 29.

The problems arise when one or more of those pockets become inflamed/infected. Then you've got diverticulITIS. Big difference. Most times diverticulitis can be treated with antibiotics, but sometimes if there is an abscess or perforation, surgery is required.

But note: most people live many years--or even forever--with absolutely no issues with their diverticulosis.

468 Empire1. Treatment for diverticulosis is all over the place. Nuts ok, not ok. Corn ok, not ok.
Search for a good gastroenterologist. After 20 years and 13 attacks of diverticulitis I finally had to have a colon resection.
Find someone good and nip it in the bud before it becomes an issue.
Ask around. Family physician, family and friends.
Actually the doc that helped me the most was my surgeon. Best advice around.

490 Empire1:

Sounds like he got an infection without perforation or abscess. If he had either of those, they probably would have kept him for a day or two on intravenous antibiotics.

My husband had one severe attack, with perforation, about 14 years ago. In hospital overnight on IV antibiotics, and then oral at home. He has taken one FiberCon each day since and has never had another episode.

I, on the other hand, just had an infection (no perf) but ended up with a severe reaction to the IV antibiotics in the ER. Thank God I was there--anaphylactic shock. Long story short, they had a helluva time finding an antibiotic I could take and so I couldn't shake the infection. Ended up with a partial colectomy 4 months later. Surgery was done robotically and I was back to work after about 8 days. Have never felt better!

Trump Attacks NYT Columnist Thomas Friedman About His Chin

What chin?




I'm super lazy on this Fuck It All Friday so here's an old guest column Thomas Friedman wrote for the site.


A Conversation With a Cabbie and What It Tells Us About The Next Several Minutes of My Life

tomfriedman.png
by Tom Friedman
Special Guest Columnist for Ace of Spades HQ

I was talking to my cabbie in Cairo, making idle chit-chat as we threaded our way through a colorful and boisterous bazaar, what the locals call a souk, when I pointed out how the world is becoming more interconnected every second.

Then, he stabbed me.

As the blade slipped between my ribs, it occurred to me the rubber of the knife's handle was made in Brazil, and the steel crafted in Japan. Much like the gaudy wares on display at the souk outside the red-flecked windows, my backseat butchering was a glorious melange of the intersection of ideas at the great crossroads of the world.

As my cabbie continued to stab at my torso, I pondered that this moment was made possible by what I call "the pollenization of possibility."

Consider: It required the melding of three cultures, Brazilian, Japanese, and Egyptian, to produce the perforation in my Minnesota-made kidney. It was as if the grand viziers of thought and the great moguls of trade had conspired for years to come together into the red-tipped point of my itinerant assassin's dagger.

You can see this everywhere in the world, in "American" cars with parts made in Japan and largely assembled in Mexico, or in the latest "killer" app, conceived in Silicon Valley but coded in Seoul.

The pace of cross-pollenization and adaptation is unstoppable and ever-increasing, much like the crazed murder-tempo of my assailant's unexpected blood-frenzy.

I hold up my hands in defense, like those "left behind" in the New Economy, trying to protect themselves from the incoming sharp edge of disruptive change. Though, in my case, I was actually trying to protect myself from the incoming the sharp edge of stabbing.

But, just as ideas from far-away cultures penetrate our society, the blade cuts into me like a viral meme, or perhaps a catchy Bollywood song.

But one of those songs that plunges deeply into the meat of your palm and severs the nerves to your fingers.

I cry out to passers-by for help, but just like those left behind by globalization, they are heedless of the changes happening all around them.

Finally, I catch their attention. Then they begin stabbing me too.

As the crowd gathers around me with knives and antiquated farm implements, some scratch-made, some from the nuevas factorias of Veracruz, it strikes to me that I am witnessing what I call the "sudden inevitable."

In my book The Sudden Inevitable, I trace how events that overtake us have percolated in the collective unconscious for decades, even centuries.

This guy just cut off my foot with a shovel.

Ideas are pregnant in the ether before any human speaks them aloud, much like the idea of stabbing me to death has long percolated (I suspect) in the collective mind of my closest confreres.

And thus, as I lie wet and wriggling upon the ground, this conclave of multicultural avatars pulling off my pants and leaving me naked below the waist for God knows what reason, I think about the quickening pulse of international concourse, and how it matches my own quickening pulse, as my heartbeat becomes fast, weak, and thready due to rapid exsanguination.

Something of the world has been lost, and it will not be returning any time soon.

Rather like my foot, which I see now has been placed upon a table in the souk and is now being offered for sale at the price of one pound, sixty piastres. I'm rather proud that the foot of a simple man from the farms of Minnesota should command such a lofty price in this place, this chattering beehive of a bazaar where the locals come to haggle over bolts of cotton and baskets of taro, and where Westerners come to be butchered and stripped down for their organs.

And their foot.

I cannot speak any longer. My microrecorder (made in the Netherlands) is almost full. Oh bugger, they just took that too

I LOVE that Trump is burned a jerk who was all nice on the phone and then sliced him in his column. The MSM apparently does this all the time.

Recall how Alex Jones recorded MeAgain Kelly cooing at him in order to get an interview, swearing she wouldn't ask about stuff and then ambushing when the cameras were rolling.

What the left wants you to think when they say racist: slave owners in the old South.

80 Trump Attacks NYT Columnist Thomas Friedman About His Chin

I don't think this is a physical reference. I think "the Chin" refers to kingdom that united China and immediately set to building the Great Wall to separate China from everything int he world.. Trump is referring to Friedman's wistful longing for America to be more like China, which Friedman wrote about back when Barky was occupooping the Oval Office - how he wished Barky had the power of a Chinese communist dictator ... the way he was supposed to.

Posted by: ThePrimordialOrderedPair at July 19, 2019 06:03 PM (6fsOH)

The man is in his 70s and his behavior has worked for him for decades. He's never going to change so people need to calm down.

Plus, he may not be the most "dignified" president in his behavior, but I must say it is refreshing to have a republican not just sit down and accept the insults and smears.

And a good number of the people who hate him behave much worse towards him. They are too blinded by TDS to realize that or too committed to Deception and Trump's destruction to admit it.

This is how othering works and it's usual outcome is the removal one way or another of those that have been othered.

People who say things like that have never been in a position of responsibility, I suspect. Someone who indulges in lèse-majesté has to pay a price, if possible, and to be seen to have paid a price, regardless of the offender's status.

Why? Because it's not always possible to make miscreants pay, so when you can, you have to come down on them like a ton of bricks to discourage others from trying it. They just don't know what you may be able to do, but they know that if you can, they're toast.

Yes, profanity as opposed to obscenity.

Your choice of curse-words actually indicates what you hold sacred, and it's interesting that profanity has declined since it no longer carries as much weight.

As a Catholic convert, I take it as a point of pride that most of my curses are trending towards the religious, though I still use plenty of obscenity.

Put a little MORE strategery on the situation. Leave the Brits to sort out their own problem. Next time Trump or other American President shows up, you'd better kiss his ass or we'll hang you out to dry again.

The alternative: man up and defend yourselves.

And don't look to Boris. He's the Brit answer to Romney. No balls. He wimped out on Brexit back when, and he recently wimped on something else (criticizing Trump for peeing standing up, or something). He's a squish in his own right. Better than May, but that's not a ringing endorsement, is it?

Yeah, "Greeb Card Spouse." I think the real purpose of that show is for real people to to feel better about their life choices.

Speaking of feeling better about life choices, on the show Evil Things, a newly married man tried to kill himself on his honeymoon.

I am happy to report that Bozo Conservative did not try to kill himself on our honeymoon.

That's not what "god damn" is. Its calling God's damnation down on something and has valid and proper use in its place like all things. God Damn pedophiles, for example. But people throw it around blithely like it doesn't matter (and in truth, it does not to them) when it should fill people with dread.

Similiarly "Geeze" and "God" and "Jesus Christ" and other variants used as expletive or emphasis. These are names freighted with great meaning and awe, not something you should throw around talking about snakes on a plane.

It's also a political miracle. Or just plain miracle.

Everyone outside of flyover territory was just fine with actually hostile behavior towards The Other for, literally, decades. And The Other were expected to take it and were cowed into taking it because culture dripped it like Chinese water torture. Every day, every moment, every angle designed to belittle Middle America. The powers that be were just giddy with delight that there was no return fire. Not in any tangible sense.

Then the Tea Party came alive and an alarm went off. Suddenly the nation turned "divisive". No, it was divisive already, just tired of being run over roughshod.

And now Trump is the tip of the spear. "Dignity"? Never existed. Not in generations anyway. No, it's just that the other side now has its voice to rebut the offenses committed against them and with the same fervor and tone that has been driven in to them via the old gatekeepers.

Us. And that's why Iran is doing this. We seized an Iranian fuel ship going to help Syrian bad guys, and they said "well we'll do it too!" and here we are.

Iran has a national version of small man's disease or something. Makes me think of the video where the guy who's about 5 feet tall is in a coffee shop, yelling and ranting at everyone for someone daring to ask how tall he is, and he just can't take it any more.

So one guy says "calm down, man" and short man goes up to him, face about hitting his stomach, and starts yelling about going outside and kicking ass. Finally the big muscular guy reaches his limit and blasts the little guy, down in one hit. Then the little guy is whining about how the big guy is "twice his size"

You hear so little about her, but it's all likable.

Some photographer at one of her charity events says, "Why not pick up the little tyke for a shot?" "I don't do stunts," she says. She also said she wasn't much of a one to carry on about the spirituality and wonder of motherhood, but rather called it "one of the occupational hazards of being a wife." When she took a tumble off a horse, she bounced up and said "Sorry to disappoint, but I'm not hurt!"

The treaty started as an anti-piracy measure.

Armed merchantmen can pretty quickly prey on unarmed ones, so it was outlawed a while ago.

The anti-piracy patrols worked off Somalia, but now you have a state actor (Iran) getting into the act. They're clearly trying to start something, but don't want to be so overt as to stage a direct attack on a US warship.

I think Kerry is advising them on this. They want to be able to blame Trump. If the Iranians fire on one of our ships, that goes away.

Seizing allied warships is getting pretty close, though.

349 A blast from the past!

CAPE ELIZABETH, Maine (AP) - A private dive team has located the last U.S. Navy warship to be sunk by a German submarine in World War II, just a few miles (kilometers) off the coast of Maine.

The sinking of the USS Eagle PE-56 on April 23, 1945, was originally blamed on a boiler explosion. But the Navy determined in 2001 that it had been sunk by a German submarine.

The patrol boat's precise location remained a mystery - until now.

. . . .

The day before Germany signed a surrender on May 7, 1945, U.S. Navy destroyers sank the submarine, U-853, south of New London, Connecticut, after it attacked a cargo ship.

378 The problem with arming tankers is that you've got to deploy military personnel to use them. You can't just hand high powered weapons to a handful of illiterate filipinos and expect anything good to come from that.

Yo, Anna Puma, by the way! As for the Noors of Somalia, we can almost call it moot, since it seems there's aNOTHER twist in the Ilhan Omar story and she's faking her birth family! Some other Somalian family sneaked her in, faking her and two of her siblings as their kids. Her real parents are . . . God knows where.

That was me in the sock.

They were a joy. And the Times was smart enough to space them out so that they didn't overlap. I think each got two weekdays and Safire got "On Language" in the Sunday magazine. That was a treasure.

And pre-internet, who knows what was going on. Reading the Times every day made me feel smart and informed. I remember a headline, "War Torn East Timor Struggles Back From the Abyss".

OK, that's no "Headless Body in Topless Bar", but it felt like an invitation into a wider world.

Way back when the Walking Dead was a new thing, he opined that - faced with an existential threat - most GIs would run away and refuse to report for duty.

Yes, he brags about his service, but I doubt he has any actual *friends* from his unit. Certainly he never references them. He also doesn't ever hang out with military guys the way Kurt Schlichter and other veterans do.

I'm betting he was a prissy, soft-handed lawyer who everyone knew was over there checking a box.

Fair enough. I would presume that a sub at periscope would be readily visible from the air, particularly given bright sunshine.

I used to bodysurf here in SoCal and almost had a heart attack a couple of times on seeing dark shadows swimming underneath me, only to go limp with relief when a seal would surface nearby.

Of course, the great white sharks around here EAT seals, so after a minute the relief turned back into alarm.

Yes, I was playing his 4th of July speech and just as I was thinking that I would suggest to friends to have their homeschooled kids listen to it for all the great historical info, Trump said "bastards".

I was glad my own kids weren't in the room at the time...oh well. In that context he could have used the word "devils" and it would have served as well.
I don't care what he tweets or says in press conferences, but major event speeches like that would be better if they were young kid-friendly.

Ultra-poisonous coral snakes have the same coloring as ultra-poisonous sea snakes, and many animals, including sharks, instinctively know to stay clear of these snakes.

Jack Coostow(American spelling) dreamed up an experiment. He painted/dyed some wetsuits the same colors as coral and sea snakes, had some of his guys put them on and swim into shark infested water.

The sharks avoided them.

526 The problem with sharks is that there aren't enough of them and their metabolisms are too slow.

25 years ago it was cute that a seal colony was established south of Cape Cod on Monomoy Island. Oh aren't they pretty. A cottage industry arose of seal watching trips.

There was another colony in Nauset Harbor, but people didn't know about that.

So what do you get with cute seals and marine mammal protection acts? (John McPhee used the phrase "charismatic megafauna", but he's just a glib New Yorker writer who doesn't really understand the seal thing. Also, I used to hit on his daughter before I understood what class distinctions are).

What you get is a shitton of seals. Smelly noisy eat all of the surf fish like my striped bass seals. Two colonies of maybe 300 animals each are now greater than 30,000 fucking charismatic vermin covering all of outer Cape Cod.

The white sharks have shown up for the easy pickings. But they're few enough that they all get named and tagged.

We need more sharks, orcas, and Canadians to rid us of this menace.

540 <adjusts tinfoil hat> We're not the only country with a deep state. Britain has had one for centuries. It's a reach, but not outside the realm of possibility that they had a hand in this. Either way, they can claim a win. If Trump sends U.S. forces in for the rescue, then the globalists can call him a warmonger and say how wise and benevolent 0bama was by comparison. If Trump stands fast, then they call in the EU for help, and it makes it that much easier for them to stick a knife in the heart of Brexit (We can't leave, we need them, they help us!) Not sayin' it's what's happening, but it is, unfortunately, within the realm of possibility.

Side story - Ted had been kicked out of Harvard for cheating and Joe bought Ted's way back in by having him attend an ROTC boot camp and making a sizable donation. This is about 1950, 51 I think.
So a totally pasted drunk Ted has to be assisted to the podium and propped up during his introduction.

The story bears repeating.

Ted hired someone to take his final exam in Spanish (not vector calculus, surprisingly enough). But then he was stupid enough to be walking around Harvard Square during the examination, and ran into his instructor, who of course recognized him.

Now what kind of an idiot lacks the basic intelligence to lie low for three hours? For that matter, what kind of an idiot cannot master Spanish? (We're not talking about Mandarin here.)

I graduated from college the following spring and had to suffer through a Ted Kennedy commencement speech. Happily, none of the students applauded; we all stood up at the end of his blather and turned our backs on Rose's little boy. None of the parents applauded either, and a good many of them wanted to know why the Masshole hadn't been "deplatformed." That was the year when a lot of colleges cancelled graduation altogether because of Cambodia, and the administration told both parents and students that we were lucky we hadn't been threatened with some kind of leftist acting-out.

Edward Kennedy overcame an impoverished, hardscrabble background to matriculate at Harvard, where he developed a reputation for originality. Afterwards his accomplishments were such that the voters of Massachusetts clamored to elect him senator at 30.

When faced with a deep personal crisis, he responded, "Let justice be done, though the heavens may fall." His green-eyeshade approach to public spending and his strict obedience to constitutional principles led to the friendly title of "The Taxpayer's Friend".

A faithful husband and devoted father, he was the living embodiment of his Catholic faith. We will never see his kind again.

The funniest part was the stables, which had been converted into a shrine showing the variety of Elvis's outfits. It was kind of like looking at the Van Gogh paintings as he descended into madness, as the outfits became more and more bizarre.

Some crone next to the wise-ass and me - OK, the two wise-asses - respectfully said, "It must have been so wonderful being Elvis."

"Really? Does this look to you like the wardrobe of a happy, well-adjusted person? He dressed like a Klingon field marshal!"

Those kinds of stories give me great comfort - because the Left has finally been driven to the point where they admit openly that it isn't really Trump they hate, the people they really really hate our US. They've accepted that Trump represents US, and they hate us, and they hate America because of that.

And this is the message they're going to take into the election.

and if you go to the link and read what Hayes proposes to do, you can see that he's pretty much adopted the Marianne Williamson political philosophy, which is the funniest part of the entire story. He says that they can all conquer the world with the Power of Love.

Edward Kennedy overcame an impoverished, hardscrabble background to
matriculate at Harvard, where he developed a reputation for originality.
Afterwards his accomplishments were such that the voters of
Massachusetts clamored to elect him senator at 30.



When faced with a deep personal crisis, he responded, "Let justice
be done, though the heavens may fall." His green-eyeshade approach to
public spending and his strict obedience to constitutional principles
led to the friendly title of "The Taxpayer's Friend".



A faithful husband and devoted father, he was the living embodiment of his Catholic faith. We will never see his kind again.

Empress Maude married Geoffery Plantegenet and was pretty normal for someone fighting her cousin for usurping her crown and Henry II was the sane one in the marriage with Eleanor of Aquitaine. It was their children, who spent so much time trying to over throw Henry, with her help, who screwed up the whole mess.

Yep. I was just reporting what he said. Apparently it's especially unnerving over ocean because there are no lights below.

And as you say, the pilot also said it's easy to be descending slowly and not realize it, and you can't judge your altitude because there's nothing visible below.

Same thing with turns. Hijackers have been foiled by pilots turning around so slowly that they didn't realize it. Presumably that would be at night.

People who misbehave privately behave well publicly when they are looking out for *everyone* and not just themselves. This is the Principle of Public Goodness, to which I subscribe completely.

372 Christmas time. Miami Florida. Eastern Flight 411 is in a holding pattern trying to troubleshoot if the nose gear was down and locked. As the crew worked the problem the autopilot disengaged and the plane began a gentle descent over the Everglades. The first warning the crew had was when the Flight Engineer in the hell hole yelled out a warning. But it was too late.

Posted by: Tom Servo at July 19, 2019 05:23 PM (Kpl3J)


Yep. Kinda big ocean, kinda small island, kinda dark. If you miss it the first time, you probably won't find it.

One of my teammates was a commercial pilot who had all the navigation gear go out on his jetliner in the mid-Pacific between Honolulu and Tokyo. All he had left was the compass. That's it.

He turned the plane back to Honolulu, and said he was terrified of missing those small islands under those conditions. He found them, obviously, and got out and kissed the ground.

I bet you couldn't find a free stall in the Honolulu airport after the passenger disembarked.

Didn't the radio work? If it did, they could give him course corrections.

My grandfather was a navigator during WW II on the trans-Atlantic supply routes, flying in a bomber with the guns removed carrying priority cargo and passengers.

They had electronic navigation aids, but the Germans spoofed them, so during daylight they tried to go by the sun position and known weather, at night the stars.

One trip heavy overcast came in and combined with a shift in wind direction, they tried to land at the wrong base - with hilarious results!

429
I'm familiar with Chappaquiddick at the time of the accident. There is a two lane paved road that starts from the ferry in Edgartown (the one in the scene in "Jaws") and goes to the center of the island, Chappaquiddick Road. The first time I visited it, a month after the accident, the scope of Kennedy's lies really hit home.

Kennedy claimed that he thought he was heading towards the ferry on Chappaquiddick Road, and took a wrong turn.

It was actually a 180 "wrong turn" off a paved road, onto a bumpy unpaved gravel road (i.e. Dike Road) thick with summer vegetation. The turn happened at a point where Chappaquiddick Road took a sharp 90 degree turn to the left. Kennedy took a sharp 90 degree turn to the right. There is no way in hell he did not know where he was going.
What about getting help?

Dike Road had lots of cottages and houses occupied at peak tourist season. The nearest house was roughly about 100 yards from the bridge. He just needed to walk to it, bang on the door, and ask for help.
Instead, he walked all of Dike Road, and miles back on Chappaquiddick Road to the compound, passing countless occupied homes, while Mary Jo was probably struggling to breath. His minions at the compound were as complicit. Not calling immediately for help, but brainstorming on how to do damage control while Teddy sobered up.
