The Saturday Night Joke

Doug Pender lived all his life in the Florida Keys and is on his deathbed and knows
the end is near. His nurse, his wife, his daughter and two sons, are with him.

He asks for two witnesses to be present and a camcorder be in place
to record his last wishes, and when all is ready he begins to speak:

"My son, Bernie, I want you to take the Ocean Reef houses."

"My daughter Sybil, you take the apartments between mile markers 100 and Tavernier."

"My son, Jamie, I want you to take the offices over in the Marathon Government Center."

"Sarah, my dear wife, please take all the residential buildings on the bay side on Blackwater Sound."

The nurse and witnesses are blown away as they did not realize his extensive holdings, and as
Doug slips away, the nurse says,

"Mrs. Pender, your husband must have been such a hard-working man to have accumulated all this property."

The wife replies, "The asshole had a paper route!"

Don't you have to have a job to take paternity leave?

This just in: Prince Harry is preparing to drop everything when Baby Sussex arrives.

In a recent interview with Us Weekly, Dickie Arbiter—Queen Elizabeth’s former press spokesman—revealed that he has no doubt the 34-year-old prince will take paternity leave when his wife, Meghan Markle, gives birth.

“It’s a modern thing,” he said. “Prince William did it for his children and Harry’s going to do it for his, when his child is born. I mean, the older generation didn’t do it. The older generation just got on with it. But it’s a new thing. People do it, William did it and Harry is going to do it.”

I get excited when I find loose change in the couch cushions. Imagine the excitement these fellows felt!

A pair of men doing cleanup work in Nebraska floodwaters discovered a "magic fridge" in an empty field that was filled with ice-cold beers.

Kyle Simpson and Gayland Stouffer said they were heading back toward the highway after a day of cleanup work on Simpson's land, near Schuyler, when they spotted a black box that had apparently been dropped into the empty field by the flooded Platte River, which had since receded from the field.

The Fight For $15 has produced collateral damage. Just another reason to avoid McDonald's.

The Metro published findings today from an investigation they did on random samplings of U.K. McDonald's touch screens. The article was aptly titled "Poo Found on Every McDonald’s Touchscreen Tested."

Do you remember Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom? There was ‎Marlin Perkins and Jim Fowler. Meet the new Jim without a tranquilizer gun.

This is the terrifying moment a bear mauls a forest officer and chases him into a reservoir during a rescue operation that went wrong.

Forest protection officer, Kumar, had been trying to drive the bear away from Velugodu Reservoir in Andhra Pradesh, India, and take it to the forest.

Kumar and other officers had cornered the bear and were trying to tie it up with ropes when it broke free and began its attack.

38 So, Rachel Maddow was crying last night about the Mueller report: here's what I don't get-

Did she think Mueller was going pin some BS charge on Trump? I would understand disappointment, but tears? The crying only makes sense if she really believes Trump was colluding with Russia.

If someone actually believes that, they gotta be seriously stupid or detached from the news. She ain't detached from the news, so in conclusion, Rachel Maddow is exceptionally stupid. What am I missing?

I do think that they are required to do a lot of public appearances. I don't know how much of their time is taken up with it. I doubt if it amounts to 40 hours per week. They get dressed up, go somewhere, and make nice with the little people.

When I was in London, I stayed at a hotel near Hyde Park. A parade of military people on horseback was going down the street and there were a lot of people meeting in the park. Someone told me that a nurses' group was having an event there and one or more members of the royal family would attend. From what I was told, pretty much every important event gets a member of the royal family.

I think it can get up to 40 hours a week depending on their level of dedication.

The Mcdlt was the bomb back in the day and you Millenials will NEVER have one lol! And the fried cherry pies were great too. The best way to get someone to appreciate something is take it away.

170 But then it's like you're eating the bones too, which you wouldn't do if it were really ribs. That's where the whole charade breaks down and it becomes a test of your willing suspension of disbelief.

Good thing I'm very credulous and not that bright.

176 I do think that they are required to do a lot of public appearances. I don't know how much of their time is taken up with it. I doubt if it amounts to 40 hours per week. They get dressed up, go somewhere, and make nice with the little people.

When I was in London, I stayed at a hotel near Hyde Park. A parade of military people on horseback was going down the street and there were a lot of people meeting in the park. Someone told me that a nurses' group was having an event there and one or more members of the royal family would attend. From what I was told, pretty much every important event gets a member of the royal family.

So looking back at it, the map said "uniquely searched pies". Now I am not an internet rocket surgeon, but I think what they were showing is what pie each state searched for online that stood out from the average search. That is a far cry from which pie is most popular in that state. I figured something was wrong when Apple Pie was listed only once (I think). Anyway, it is cool the way they did it, it made it more interesting, not less.

Yes, the "poo found on X!" thing sounds awful and that's the kind of studies Big Disinfectant likes to use to hawk their products.

The truth is fecal matter is found on everything. It's in the air. How? Well, the world is the bathroom for all the animals out there. Insects, birds, etc.

There was some recent study looking at the composition of the shit found in air samples, and in urban areas, the biggest component was dog shit. Not a majority, but a plurality, IIRC.

Posted by: H&K at March 24, 2019 12:06 AM (xSo9G)

446 TL, DR: Keep a budget. Plan ahead. Make money.

The long form:

Last Sunday, St Patty's the 17th, was the 23rd anniversary of the day I first put up a web page as Mindful Webworks (whence my silly nic).

Originally mindful.sprynet.com - ancient history. The domain name purchase came later.

As some folks understand, to "compete," you can't just get "mindfulwebworks.com" - you have to cover all the bases, or at least the major ones, dots com, org, and net. That's about all there were besides things like .gov when I bought rented my domains. Plus, the hyphenated form, mindful-webworks com org and net. (Like anybody else would ever want to steal or spoof a stupid name like that, but yeah.)

Apparently, a decade ago, in a moment of fatness and forethought, I set up and paid for the domains to renew automatically every ten years. I'd forgotten I'd done that.

A decade blows by like a hurricane.

So today, when we're in a moment of leanness and lackathought, the bill comes in for multiple domains times ten years each. (Funny how time flies when you're not keeping track.) $YOW! The card account was already on life support.

I tried renewing but the web host said I couldn't. I called Help for help, but "William's" main advice was to LET GO of my domains, and try to renew them on another card. "You have five days. GO!" And some other things neither Milady nor I comprehended. He SEEMED to be a native English speaker, but was infected with geekspeek.

Well, turns out, my attempted online renewal charge (1 year, not 10) on the main two com domains went through after all, so MW is still alive, for a while. Searching behind the couch cushions to see about renewing the others.

Sure makes me think about what I'm doing. Approaching a quarter century of practically no feedback (logprof notwithstanding) and utterly no $upport (virgin PayPal buttons all over the site) after 23 years and twelve hundred webworks, why even bother keeping up with the domains.

If only that were the worst of our concerns!

Here, an old webwork to make up for my whining:

Yes.

Have one, run thousands of rounds through it and the only hiccup was a factory reload that had the side of the case torn off that I didn't notice when loading the magazine.

It's my carry weapon and I run it in IDPA matches on a regular basis. I don't clean before the match, because the gun has to run after being in the holster for a while and the best time to find out if there's an issue is during a match and not when I actually need the gun. Hasn't failed yet.

474 Have never fired a Kimber, or a Les Baer, or any of the other high-end 1911s. All my guns are stock, have not had trigger work on any. Just my way. But I expect/hope to get some trigger smoothing the hard/fun way - lots and lots of shooting. Have an S ampersand W Model 66-2, produced in the early 90s, third owner but first two didn't shoot it much, it's getting pretty nice.


I've tried some of the tricked-out triggers on guns at matches - revolvers, CZs. They are unbelievably lighter and better than all of mine. Meh. I'd like to become proficient enough that I shoot satisfactorily with stock triggers.

521 .270 great for Wyoming, as is .30-06 or .257 Roberts or .250-3000 for deer.

lots of good 2nd hand quality rifles available and a lot of fun to be had sniffing them out.

522 Think I figured out why I shot so poorly in last Sunday's action rifle match (M1). At duty day at the range this week, put 100 rounds through it. Front sight was left of center; had consistent hits to the right. Also, elevation aperture has some issue, it would be down 6 clicks from initial/proper setting after a clip or two. Not sure I've fixed that yet. Together the two problems probably help explain the appalling performance. Rest of the explanation would be me, not settling, rushing shots. And I wasn't adjusting based on observed impacts quickly enough - thought my sights were dependable.


Love the boom of the M1. Stands out from almost every other kind of music at the range.

I once owned a 1st Generation Styer M-9, pre A1.

It was by and far away, the finest 9mm pistol I've ever fired. Once you got used to the trapezoidal sights, that is.

Wicked accurate. VERY soft-shooting, due to the lowest bore axis going. Ergonomics, especially the grip shape and angle, approach perfection.

It's everything that Glock had imagined, but never achieved.

If I can find another pre-A1, I'll try to buy it. I'll likely revert the sights to "conventional", but the pistol is a winner, in every respect.

Buy every magazine you can afford for it though. They're not exactly "common" out there, y'know.

Aren't active-duty military with duty stations in CA exempt from the CA gun laws? I mean, for guns they own/bring in from outside? Sort of like off-roster handguns owned/brought in by people taking up residence in CA are allowed?

It is a land to be conquered, de-populated in the manner of Old Testament Thou Shalts, all the way down to the goats, and then re-populated with a better people.

Where militarism fails in Afghanistan, is in thinking that such a tribal folk can be conquered and ruled, much less civilized and improved.

It's not "genocide". It's "tribalism-cide". They look similar, but are actually quite different.

Question is then, with whom to repopulate the newly vacated lands?

In '12, I put in a Cylinder and Slide Tactical Match 4.5 trigger pull set: hammer, sear, disconnector, sear spring, mainspring. Also put in a new trigger: 3 hole V Match long aluminum. Pistol is a Colt Series 80.

Had to do this as the sear notch in the hammer broke off. I was very lucky that is happened with only 2 rds left in the mag.

Very, very happy with the setup. Only fitting activity was a minor tension adjustment to the sear spring.

Back then, both items ran $114. Now, it's $140. Recommended.

It's one way of describing it.

Climbing above self-exaltation is the art of not letting go of the so-important ego, while bowing humbly before the absolute transcendent personality, who is not oneself, ultimately, but whom we understand as "made in the image of."

But you already get this.

Medina first, as a warning.

Save Mecca to reside under the Sword of Damocles, as the ongoing threat.

Never take an action that leaves no further threat to proffer, as then your opponent has nothing left to lose.

Unless utter and immediate annihilation is your goal, at which point get giggity with taking out most all of the muzzies on the planet.

Point is, know your enemy.

Want to break most all of Islam? Take out about 50% of their "holy sites".

And then challenge their Imams to provide an answer to how Allah bears this happen, to their flocks.

Take out another 10% the following year, with the same challenge.

Simply demonstrate the powerlessness of Islam, on a more than one time basis.

Kick the legs out from under their wobbly stool.

No need to slaughter millions.

Just destroy the foundations of their so-called "faith".

Frankly?

Most of 'em want a reason to escape the restrictions, and become 1st world wannabees, anyway.

Saturday Evening Movie Thread 03-23-2018 [Hosted By: Moviegique]

Alita: Battle Angel

My interest in seeing this film was less than zero and less than Less Than Zero—the grimy and unlikely screen version of Brett Easton Ellis' novel with Andrew McCarthy, Jami Gertz and Robert Downey, Jr. I mean, the poster presents the most generic-looking CGI manga-inspired female action hero with freaky-big eyes doing fighty stuff in a blandly porridge-y 2019 way. And the fact that it was directed by Robert Rodriguez (when I discovered that) made it even worse to my mind: Rodriguez is often cheesy, but seldom bland.

alita 01.jpg
Say what you will about this "Spy Kids" makeup, it's not bland.

Item the first: Weird critical/audience split. Rotten Tomatoes having gone completely into shill territory with Captain Marvel, I'm tentatively trying out Metacritic, but both show "Critics hate it, audiences like or love it." OK, well, audiences a lot of time like bland action schlock so that's not super strong—but the split was, at the time, over 30 points, which puts it in the territory of a film containing positive references to Jesus.

Item the second: Word of mouth is consistent and insistent. People like this movie, and fairly insistent that the CGI does not hit you with the uncanny valley effect.

Enough people on the movie thread and Twitter recommended it to me where I decided to take the plunge. The Flower was out, of course, since her taste falls to classics and movies of spiritual interest. The Boy was okay about it, but the way he picked his girlfriend over any actual showing of the film (and who could blame him), I realized it was one of those movies I would never get to if I waited for him. The Barbarienne is up for whatever, usually, but she was against it due to changes made from the manga (which she has not read, but the Internet will happily and angrily inform her of).

So, I, a father of four went alone to Alita: Battle Angel, which probably gets me on an FBI list, or should, anyway.

alita 02.jpg
"My daughter, beware most of all of grown men who like your manga."

Irony of ironies: This is basically a YA movie in the vein of Hunger Games or The Giver which, as yaboi Zack points out, probably would've felt a lot fresher 25 years ago when it actually ended it's 5 year manga run. That said, I ended up liking it overall, and it's definitely worthy of an examination for what it does right.

The story is this: In a dystopic (of course) future world, the peons live on the ground in subservience to the floating sky city Zalem—the last floating city since a war 300 years previous which resulted in all the other floating cities collapsing. Zalem takes the goods that Iron City produces through these giant tubes that look like they're tethering the thing down, and then dumps its trash out of a big hole in the middle around which the city is congregated. A kind-hearted cyborg repair doctor discovers the remnants of a cyborg in the dump with a still functioning heart and brain, and takes it home to put it in a mechanical body he had made for his own daughter years before.

When she wakes up, she has no memory (natch), and struggles (a little) to adapt to her new surroundings while dealing with flashes of memory and bouts of super-combat-skills. Then we get bounty hunters (good and bad), serial killers, a game called roller—er, motorball, the winner of which supposedly gets to go to Zalem, roving gangs of punks stealing cyborg attachments, a love story, betrayals, an ex-wife redemption arc, interplanetary war backstory, Jeff Fahey with a team of robot dogs, gratuitous Edward Norton and Michelle Rodriguez, and the specifically allowed one instance of the F-word for PG-13 movies.

alita 03.jpg
Jackie Earle Haley trained for six months to bulk up for this role!

There's a lot of story, is what I'm getting at, and I'm sure I've left some major points out, as did (wisely) Rodriguez when he trimmed down James Cameron's script to two hours. Honestly, all that stuff and the story arc is as generic as you'd expect a 30-year-old story from an increasingly over-mined genre to be.

But from go, the filmmakers invest in Alita as a teenage girl. There's no "is she human or not?" nonsense. She is. She has normal teen reactions despite her brain having been in a junkyard for 300 years. She's unsure, excitable, emotional, effusive, enthusiastic and quick to jump to the wrong conclusions. And she has freakishly large eyes.

The funny thing is, the eyes largely works to keep you out of the uncanny valley. For me, I know it didn't completely work because I kept thinking about it—but it worked better than most CGI humanoids. And I think it's because the big eyes tell your brain that there's no effort to actually fool you. Meanwhile there are a lot of imperfections and human touches, along with some very good motion capture and voice acting by Rosa Salazar which makes for a compelling heroine.

alita 04.jpg
At one point, she literally gives her boyfriend her heart.

Chris Waltz is great and does the main emotional heavy lifting apart from Salazar, and their father-daughter dynamic gives you something to really care about. Jennifer Connelly has a less well-developed maternal role to play, but she works it well. Keean Johnson threads the needle as the guy who's smitten with a girl who can tear him limb-from-limb. In fact, all the characters are nicely drawn, probably because they were developed over six books. Jeff Fahey as the dog-themed bounty hunter and Jackie Earle Haley as the biggest baddie were inspired choices for cool characters.

You can tell that there's a lot more story behind most of the characters. Besides Connelly, The Iron City boss played by Mahershala Ali and quite a few of the bounty hunters would've benefitted from more screen time. But I sincerely, deeply appreciated Rodriguez keeping this tight and giving us an ending that doesn't feel like a middle finger. It doesn't tie up all the loose ends, but it's satisfying enough to not make you feel ripped off.

There are a few hiccups. Sometimes the actors aren't looking in quite the right place when interacting with Alita, e.g., and occasionally the seams on the CGI show, which didn't bother me because I feel like Rodriguez (like a lot of Asian filmmakers) is less interested in "looks real" than "looks cool". (On the other hand, my understanding is this film cost somewhere between $175-$200M, and Cameron's all about the "real", but hey, not my money.) Rodriguez also really knows space, which means even his goofiest CGI-tacular affairs tend not to be disorienting, and in this case imbues Iron City with life you didn't feel in (e.g.) Coruscant. The too-much-for-me-CGI of the motorball game is salvaged by a good sense of space and weight.

So, if you're like me and have only heard enthusiastic things about this, I'll temper that somewhat. I liked it, there was much to commend, and I had good feelings about it—but unless you're in that demo, it's probably not going to knock your socks off.

11 I saw the incomparable Bette Davis in “Jezebel” on TCM the other night. In some ways its a better antebellum flick than “Gone With the Wind” – in fact it was given to her as a sop for not getting the role of Scarlett O’Hara. I always felt Bette, with her big, seen-it-all eyes, wasn’t right for the part of Scarlett, who was just a silly flirt in the beginning of the story. But Bette was perfect as the waspish Julie whose beauty and charm makes people forgive her for her transgressions, until they don’t. Henry Fonda was terrific as her fiancé who has had enough of her shit.

It feels a lot like a proto-GWTW. It shares some actors, and it showcases a society that is on its last legs. There’s even a scene where the leading lady scandalizes society by wearing a red dress.

It's not really a "floating city," it's actually the bottom end of a space elevator. There's a city in space at the top "counterweight" end that figures in later books.

29 Add this to the other good comments I've heard about this. I'll probably check it when the DVD hits the library or Netflix picks it up.

I have a slew of library DVDs that I need to watch. Trouble is, I have to wait for wife and daughter to finish their shows and then be in the mood for a movie. Too many entertainment options, not enough time. I include AoS among these options.

Now -- when I first checked this thread it had two comments, and one refresh brought the total to nine. Let's see where this winds up.

35 It feels a lot like a proto-GWTW. It shares some actors, and it showcases a society that is on its last legs."

I agree completely, Jezebel is a great movie, one of Bette Davis best (and that's against tough competition!) Davis was really angry about not being given the "Scarlett" role for a long time, one of the more amusing things she was quoted as saying was that Vivian Leigh would be horrible for the role, since she had no idea how to do a proper southern accent.

Saw a great trailer for this Iranian movie "Pig" which is about a blacklisted filmmaker who's increasing agitated by a serial killer who targets great Persian filmmakers and hasn't gotten around to him yet, while he's being accused of being the murderer on social media, which he fears and doesn't understand.

I really don't like Craig as Bond. I've gotten used to his looks now but he reminds me of one of the Soviet bad guys in the old Bond films. His Bond is way too moody.

164 Saw "Rampant" last week on Netflix.

"Rampant" is a Korean movie in the same vein as the K series "Kingdom", ie. zombie infestation in ancient Korea.

A bit slow in parts cuz the Koreans do love them some royal backstabbing and intrigue.

But, once the movie gets going...it really gets going.

Same guys who made "Train to Busan" made this one, so they know their zombie action.

Generally good acting. Good not great script with some biggish plot holes and languor. Nice OMG! zombie attacks.

Check it out.

174 Only movie I did watch this week was on YouTube, the old 1970 Waterloo with Christopher Plummer as Duke of Wellington and Rod Steiger as Napoleon. There is a lot to rip apart for historical accuracy but hadn't seen it in at least 25 years so loved seeing it again.

Posted by: Skip at March 23, 2019 07:50 PM (BbGew)


I re-watch that movie all the time. Last year I found a website that let me download it, and with a program called VLC Media Player I can watch it, correctly formatted for larger widescreen TVs (which the DVD was not).

Although you can pick it apart for certain details of the battle, the cast and general portrayal of the battle are excellent. In addition to Steiger and Plummer, I greatly enjoyed Orson Welles as Louis XVIII, Jack Hawkins as Picton, and Dan O'Herlihy as Ney. I am also impressed with the way they groomed some real estate to look like the actual battlefield.

204 We've talked on these threads a lot about Movies that should have been good that turned out really Bad - but I've been thinking this week about a rarer phenomena, and movie that should be schlocky, that you expect little from, that turns out to be surprisingly good, and by that I mean it ends up having some real depth. Saw Bubba-Hotep again this week, and it's in that class. You're sure its just going to be a silly movie about a man who thinks he's Elvis chasing a mummy - and then very slyly it turns into a reflection on how we treat the elderly, and how easy it is for us just to forget people and put them out of our minds because it's the convenient thing to do. And it tackles that issue with a great deal of heart, insight, and understanding that is very rarely seen.

217 164 Saw "Rampant" last week on Netflix.

"Rampant" is a Korean movie in the same vein as the K series "Kingdom", ie. zombie infestation in ancient Korea.

A bit slow in parts cuz the Koreans do love them some royal backstabbing and intrigue.

But, once the movie gets going...it really gets going.

Same guys who made "Train to Busan" made this one, so they know their zombie action.

Generally good acting. Good not great script with some biggish plot holes and languor. Nice OMG! zombie attacks.

259 On the anime front-

I'm really enjoying two very stupid but cleverly written comedies on Crunchyroll.

One, "How Clumsy You Are, Miss Ueno" is the story of a young teenage girl genius who constantly uses her inventions to try to get the attention and appreciation of a clueless boy in the most embarrassing and inappropriate ways possible.

It's incredibly stupid yet the set ups are often clever. and it doesn't over stay it's welcome. The episodes are short. If you catch the shows vibe, you will laugh.

Two, "Aho-Girl" is the story of a very stupid girl who loves two things, the boy next door and bananas. Again this show is so-o-o-o-o incredibly silly and stupid but very cleverly written.

And again, if you catch the vibe, you will laugh a lot.

I think Anna Puma mentioned "Haiyore! Nyaruko-San"

This is a fun watch involving Lovecraft's Old Gods coming to Earth as teenage girls. The show gets a lot of mileage from turning cosmic catastrophe into teen girl silliness. Sometimes it strays to far into a typical teen girl anime romance. but it usually smile worthy.

Some other more typical anime which are good:

The Rising of the Shield Hero
Asuka Magical Girl Spec-Ops
The Promised Neverland

I believe you can stream Crunchyroll for free but there are commercials. You can pay a fee if you want to view without Commercials.

Check these out.

I'm writing "serious" stuff and I wish I could be on a writing staff for a sitcom because it's steadier money, but even so I recognize that there needs to be levity injected to soothe the pain of representing life as we know it.

289 Kino Lorber has just released the first four Road pictures starring Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, and I got them in the mail yesterday. Sat right down and watched the first two, Road to Singapore and Road to Zanzibar right away. I had always thought these two to be lesser entries in the series, but the basic style is right there from the beginning -- the self-referential ad-lib jokes, the making fun of Paramount (there's a great throwaway bit in Singapore of them imitating newsreel cameramen, humming the Paramount newsreel theme), the "Patty Cake" gag they use in every movie to get out of a tight spot, etc. . . . Corny, sometimes politically incorrect, but great fun nonetheless. And I forgot how many good songs were in these movies -- "Too Romantic," "Moonlight Becomes You," "It's Always You," just to name a few. And I shouldn't forget to mention Dorothy Lamour as their mutual love interest (hubba, hubba) . . .

Posted by: Moron Robbie - search engine expert at March 23, 2019 08:55 PM (xyung)

313 On one of the Fishing Thread weeks, I saw -

"The Weather Man" on cable.

TWM is a dark comedy starring Nicholas Cage as a Weather man who is the son of a very famous author(Michael Caine).

When the movie starts Cage's character has destroyed his marriage through infidelity and has never been much of a father to his children. He is the top weather man in the area, but starts to wonder if that's all there is. Can he ever live up to his father's example?

When his beloved father informs Cage that he has cancer, Cage wants to show his father who he can be, wants him to be proud of him.

He tries to get his family back.

I know this sounds terribly depressing but it really is a funny comedy (dramedy?).

Cage turns in a controlled performance except when the frustration of it all gets to him and that's funny as well.

It's a wonderful movie.

One of those I saw when it first came out (2005ish), and has stuck with me through the years.

I was glad that I still enjoyed it so much.

Anyway, check it out. It's on cable still (I think) and is streamable.

I hated 2049 and stopped watching it. The real Blade Runner was an examination of the nature of humanity.

2049 starts off with a robot killing a robot and someone says "you kill your own kind?" and he says no, that guy was a different make and model.

So it's trying to draw you into a relative morality about which machines are worthy of life. It's just dumb. You can't care about the wrong model machine. You can care about the machine that thinks it's human.

I've discussed this with JM son. I really *wanted* to like BR 2049, I had looked forward to it for so long - and then they came so close to making a good movie... but it was not a good movie.

My opinion is that this crew never truly understood what the original story was about, what made Bladerunner such an emotionally powerful and insightful movie. It was not about Deckard at all, he was just the placeholder that moved the story along. The true story of the original film was the Journey of Roy Batty, and his step by step tranformation from Feared Replicant Killer into More Human than Human.

Roy Batty was the Heart of the film - not Deckard.

Really?

I loved both-

"The Collector"

and

"The Collection"

They really tried to do something a bit different with a horror movie.

I especially liked the way they upped the ante - if "The Collector" was "Alien" then "The Collection" was "Aliens".

I was looking forward to the third part of the trilogy, but....they didn't make enough money, so that was that.

Though the end of "The Collection" actually provides a nice ending to the series.

so it doesn't feel unfinished.

I suppose that the Collector is such a mysterious figure that we don't know enough about him. all we know is his creepy actions.

I'm guessing the third part would've opened up that aspect but it was not to be.

I've developed a hankering to watch B movies from the '50s, the kind Gomer Pyle would describe to his barracks mates. (For that matter, I'd like to watch that show again, but MeTV's schedule doesn't fit mine.)

I saw that one years ago. Probably when I was in college. They showed a lot of older movies on campus.

I don't remember much about it, which means it didn't impress me.

Samantha Eggar was good looking.

The movie of her's I remember was a David Cronenberg horror movie-

"The Brood" (1979)

That was a crazy and good horror movie. Huge spoiler regarding Eggar is usually on the DVD/Blu-ray's cover.

Try to stream if you can.

Made right before Cronenberg broke big with "Scanners".

A couple of nights ago I watched The Hard Word with Guy Pierce, Rachel Griffiths and Robert Taylor. Okay crime flick (practically impossible to understand what anyone is saying, given the Aussie accents), and Griffiths is hotter than she has any right to be.

But after getting used to hearing Taylor with his deep bass, American voice in Longmire, it's really jarring to hear him talk in mid-tenor Australian.

Chess Thread 03-23-2019

seventh-seal-470.jpg
I hate it when this happens


Pic Note

Discovering that you've hung your queen has got to be the worst feeling in the world. There is no other "oh sh*t" moment quite like it.

As always, the chess/dress pr0n thread is an open thread, so there is no such thing as an off-topic comment.


Easier Problem - White To Play (939)

Goal: Capture all of the pieces
Hint: See how White's queen command that long diagonal?


20190323 - Problem 1.jpg
7k/3rN1pn/p4q2/8/1p2Q2P/1B3P2/PPP5/1K6 w - - 0 1


More Challenging Problem - White To Play (945)

Obviously, White can trade his rook for the queen and being 2 bishops up in material should be enough to win the game. But find a faster way.

Goal: White can force a mate in 6
Hint: Set up a CRUSHING pin


20190323 - Problem 2.jpg
3r3k/6qp/p3BR2/1p4R1/5B2/2pp4/P5PK/8 w - - 0 1


From Last Week

334 Another draw. OM, can you post a definite win for White in Problem 2? Because I can't find it.

Posted by: rickl at March 16, 2019 09:06 PM (sdi6R)

One of the lines in the solution to last week's challenging problem finished with a position that looked something like this:


20190323 - Problem 3.jpg
8/6p1/p4p1p/1N2k3/8/5PP1/6KP/8 w - - 0 6
White To Move

So I said, yeah, that's a win for White and left it at that. But, as rickl found out, it's not so easy. He couldn't find it. I probably couldn't find it, either. I let the Stockfish engine analyze it and yes, it's a win, but it takes close to 50 moves to secure it. I'm thinking this is a position even a master might have problems with. I wish zombie would show up today. I would like to have his opinion on this position.

Stumbling upon complex difficulties in seemingly easy positions is one of the reasons I like chess so much.

Now Black has a couple of ways to lose all of his pieces:

#1: 1...Rd8 2.Qxd8+ Nf8 3.Qxf8+ Qxf8 4.Ng6+ Kh7 5.Nxf8+ and wins

#2: 1...Nf8 2.Qxf8+ Qxf8 3.Ng6+ Kh7 4.Nxf8+ Kh6 5.Nxd7 and wins

Best. Other moves lose more quickly:

#2: 1...d2 2.Rf8+ Rxf8 3.Bxg7#

The main line loses in 6:

2.Rf4 h6

4.Rf8+ Kh7
5.Bf5+ Rg6
6.Rh8#


Hope to see you all next week!


___________

Note: that cryptic line of letters and numbers you see underneath each board diagram is a representation of the position in what is known as "Forsyth-Edwards Notation", or F.E.N. It's actually readable by humans. Most computer applications nowadays can read FEN, so those of you who may want to study the position, you can copy the line of FEN and paste into your chess app and it should automatically recreate the position on its display board. Or, Windows users can just "triple click" on it and the entire line will be highlighted so you can copy and paste it into your chess app.

Definitely not New York City sidewalks ... unless they are part of some building's front way. But there aren't many buildings in the picture so it doesn't seem like a big office building would be anywhere around there.

1. St. John Cantius is the best Catholic Church in the Chicago area. It's the way every Catholic Church should be

2. Gov. Jabba the Pritzker is hellbent on making Illinois as pro-abort as possible. Although the previous "Republican" governor was just as bad.

3. Scum like Madigan and Cullerton are allegedly Catholic. It's time to start ex-communicating them and their families. Deny all of them any access to the Church or even being buried in Catholic cemeteries.

88 The 1820 dress is decorated like a pelisse but isn't in my book, a pelisse is a short over jacket decorated with braid like the dress but also has fur edging. Popular in military wear with hussars from the early 1700's through the Napoleonic wars and after. Military wear often was copied into civilian styles. The pelisse was usually worn over the shoulder unless needed for weather.

And the #13 seed in question was the lowest-seeded team to get out of the first round.

Plus these days to be declared a #5 is not to be a thing of celebration. Lately, it's a thing of dread. This year, for example, 3 of the #5 seeds lost to their #12 opponents.

Josh Waitzkin (from Searching for Bobby Fischer) was playing a game in which his opponent hung his queen. It was just a major blunder. Waitzkin was convinced that it was a trick and looked at it for quite a while. He couldn't see the trick but chose not to take the queen, anyway.

199 Short hair can really look cute on a man if she's got the proper face shape.

Especially, if they're young.

Older women seem to be more hit or miss on the short hair front.

200 When I grow my hair past my shoulders, I look terrible. Cut it shorter and I can take a decade or so off my age. Sorry.

You reminded me of an old Katrina era joke. Some local is being interviewed by an out of state reporter about how bad things are in N.O., and she says "It is just terrible - all of our Church's got flooded out and had to close!!!" And the reporter says "All of the Churches? That's unbelievable, how can you cope??" And she says 'Well it's okay, we still got Popeye's."

I wear three-inch heels almost every day at the office. Ratchet it up to four inches and I'm okay if the heel is stacked a little bit. (Like a boot or shootie.) Those Melania stillettos? I'd be lucky not to break an ankle.

287 Nadler is on three of the Sunday Morning programs tomorrow. Schiff is on two. They're going to double down on continuing investigations to find something, anything.

Will any of Wallace, Tapper or Todd say "have you no decency, sir?" My bet is no, as they've also been humping the lie for two years.

294 The gal in the B&W photo is Carolyn Grey. Per Getty Images:

https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-
photo/order-clerk-carolyn-grey-walking-
down-hollywood-and-vine-news-photo/50493021

Based on that, it looks like the pic was originally published in LIFE Magazine. Not sure why they called her an Order Clerk though. She was a singer.


American jazz vocalist.
She had already established herself as a popular radio vocalist on the West Coast in the early 40's. She was hired by Woody Herman in 1941 to join his Orchestra and went on touring.
That lasted until 1943, in that summer she stopped suddenly. In October 1944, she joined up with Sonny Dunham to play and tour with his band. In 1945 she got the opportunity to record a record of her own.
In 1946 she replaced the female singer of Gene Krupa And His Orchestra, Anita O'Day who became ill and couldn't work anymore. She became very popular, but after getting married and the bitrh of her first child, she stopped touring and recording in 1947.
In 1953 she tried to make a come-back, without much success.

Thanks for highlighting last week's Problem 2, OM. I'm glad to see that it wasn't my own incompetence that prevented me from finding a win in that position. It looks like it should be easy, and I just figured I'd while away a few minutes playing it out against my computer. That turned into an hour or two of draw after draw after draw. The closest I came to a win was when Black's lone king stalemated White's king and pawn.

Well, here he is. I think we're sticking with the name Poppy. He doesn't mind Bleu but Bleu DOES mind him. Bleu's been hiding since he arrived. Poppy does not like the dog, I don't think he's ever been around one before. A bit of growling, hissing, and spitting going on by the new kitten. He is tiny, a bit over 2 lbs. and is a bit bony but we can fix that. - Linduh

What a little cutie! Give them time, they will get to tolerate each other if not more than that. Thanks for submission

This is Shepard the Beagle Dog (though in truth he is a Beagle/Pointer mix) and we brought him home 10-years ago from a shelter.

Shepard is sweet but like all beagles he loves to eat. Honestly, you’d never think we feed him the way he constantly prowls about the whenever anyone in the house opens the pantry or the refrigerator.

Shepard loves us all and he is on constant guard against people walking by with their pets, the mail man and all delivery personnel though I think his barking is really is way of asking “Hey! You got any treats?”

There three photos sum up our beagle dog; contented, contemplative and in command.

I’m a moron and a lurker and love the AOS Pet Thread, my favorite weekly feature.

Yours, The Man Who Spoils Shepard


That is one lucky puppy Shepard. He certainly appears to have quite the life! Thank you for being a supportive lurker.

These are our Pride and joy. Bert, the large economy sized white cat has been with us for 17 years. Judy (the black and white) and Daisy (the tabby) entered the family 4 years ago after The Woo, Bert’s BFF of 13 years, passed away. Bert was inconsolable after Woo passed, so after about 2 weeks of gloomy Bert, we decided that he needed a companion. A single kitten may have been too much for this old cat to handle, so naturally we got two. Bert’s initial reaction to the two young kittens was somewhere between contempt and outrage. Judy, rumored to be a Norwegian forest cat, worked her comedic charm and wiles on Bert, but Daisy, the scaredy-cat peacemaker eventually won him over. The three have differing views of who’s Top Cat while (mostly) enjoying each other’s company. My husband and I, very low-ranking members of their Pride, tend dutifully to them. They are not shy about letting us sit beneath them so long as we provide tummy rubs and chin scratches. It is a peaceful Pride that loves to play, and we’re blessed to be counted in their numbers. And, of course Daisy is a shameless photobomber. We love your Saturday thread … keep up the great work!

Shaquerone (a lurker in the Great Free State of South Carolina

What a neat group of cats. Quite the story you have there. We appreciate you submitting the story of Bert, Daisy & Judy. Thanks for being a lurker, I'm glad you stepped out of the shadows.

allenhorses.jpg

I rarely if ever comment here, but I thought I would send this to the pet thread. Breitbart was right.


These are my boys getting ready for the first day of spring training for this year’s pack season. The Bay Thoroughbred in the foreground is “Lucky,” my trail horse, who came off a race track in Texas where he never won a dime. The Mustang with the white blaze on his head is “Jake,” my pack horse, who I got through the BLM Wild Horse and Burro Adoption Program.

When I got “Lucky” he knew only one thing, must run faster! My life flashed in front of my eyes several times. The first time I took him on a drive I found out he was afraid of cattle and I thought I was going to have to wear a bag over my head. I sucked dust for a week riding drag because of him but he got over his fear. “Jake” was a bit of a slow learner (AoS Horde Material) but he’s come along splendidly.

My wife sure enjoyed the show when I was first training them, “oooh, that looked like it hurt” she would cheerfully say. They are both great mountain horses now and I trust them with my life, as they do theirs with me.

Best Regards, Allen

Actually, my philosophy is not to have 2 animals of the same age.

That being said, they both sound like interesting dogs. Lab/Husky would be a wash & wear dog with minimal grooming.

57 When we had two cats we had two litter boxes but found the sisters both used both, Oh well.

Mine use both boxes too-- but the vet's point is that having a litter box for each cat prevents one from getting territorial and keeping the other cat(s) from using the box-- that kind of bullying happens in some multicat households. In addition, if one cat is feeling an urgent need to use the box, it won't have to wait for another cat to finish up if it has its own box.

Muldoon, I thought your perennial hatching hound was a Bernese as well. There may be some in there somewhere.

We just learned that our German Shepherd has a severely enlarged heart and liver. Doc thinks her heart literally broke over losing our Newfoundland last month. We don't have long, but we at least have some warning with her. She will be living like a queen til she goes home. So everybody hug your pets, today. They are not with us long enough.

67 I've told these stories before but a couple of the links reminded me.

One of our first poodles went blind at 4 years old. He never skipped a beat. He and his brother, without prompting, teamed up like a well-rehearsed act as guider and 'guidee'. They were litter mates and had been together from birth so playing and cuddling was natural to them.

Concerning therapy animals (that horse is amazing). One of our toy poodles was especially adorable and kept his puppy proportions all his life. He was riding in Mrs. JTB's purse when visiting a relative in a nursing home public room. The nurses warned us that one of the old ladies, very frail, was terrified of dogs because of her time in a German Concentration camp with guard dogs. No problem since she thought the pup was a stuffed toy. She reached out to pet the 'toy' and was surprised when she got a puppy kiss on the hand. We figured she would freak out but Strudel was too adorable. She ended up playing with him for several minutes. The nurses told us later that it was the first time they ever saw her smile. It's a wonderful memory.

68 We just learned that our German Shepherd has a severely enlarged heart

I lost my second cat (Kette, a brown tabby) to cardiomyopathy. No warning at all until one night she hissed at me, which she had never done before. She was also having trouble breathing. We rushed her to the ER at the local animal hospital, but there was nothing they could do for her after diagnosing the problem. She had never had any major health problems, and the suddenness of her loss still hurts. Kette was an easygoing, friendly cat who got along well with her cat companions (bonded with two of them), and I miss her terribly . . . yes, I will hug my present two kittehs very closely tonight.

72 I adore Aussie's but I had to rehome my last one.
At six weeks when I picked him up I had him in the truck with me and a friend walked over to say Hi. Max looked at him and started growling.

He was an exceptional working dog and protector. He never bit anyone but he would warn anyone to stay away.

I had to rehome him because the Farm I was managing at the time had other workers and Max would not let them walk into the barn

I gave him to a friend that had lots of cattle to work and he lived a long and happy life.

He is right about 70 lbs. Biggest Aussie I've ever seen. He comes from a line of working ranch dogs. I suspect he might be an aussie/clydesdale mix.

I have gotten cats from shelters and purebreds too. Over time the cost isn't different. One Persian I adopted from the state pound for 20 dollars cost 200 in the first week for shots.

Purebreds can also be a crapshoot personality-wise. I have a purebred British Shorthaired cat that despite the breeds rep as a fairly calm cat is wildly hostile to being held by people and decided to isolate himself in a room after some scraps with another cat of mine.

I have another cat, a Persian who was crazy hostile to people and cats when I adopted her, due to being abused by owners, kids then abandoned into an open shelter with dozens of cats. She also gave herself a room in the house and has at least gotten rid of her hostility to people and much of it to cats. She did make an enemy of another cat of mine in the process who bullies her if she gets in the room. But she loves her own bedroom too.

These days there are lots of Purebreds getting dumped, so you can often combine the two and find a purebred from a shelter, especially if you hunt websites dedicated to them.

Labs are an awesome breed.

The other type of dog in the mixed breeds this way would be herding.

Mid kid had a corgi and now a mixed breed with some type of herding dog mix. Not crazy about that.

I've found that purebred personality traits are pretty consistent. Health issues are the biggest crap shoot.

96 If you are adopting an older dog, shelter dogs are pretty safe WRT to personality with the visiting beforehand and trial periods. There is nothing wrong and in fact plenty of right with folks who want a working dog or in love with a specific breed keeping good breeders in business, but its better to know your way around before taking on a puppy IMO. Just don't take on a problem adult from a shelter, and you won't have to; there are plenty of sweeties with varying energy levels to suit different lifestyles that have wound up at shelters.

I would pass on any mix that included Pit or Rotty. This is for the simple reason that the dogs I've had were family dogs, with kids coming in and out all the time. Those breeds are great for the immediate family, and very protective. I understand many people have and love them, but I just couldn't take a chance on an incident.

Mine have been Lab/Chow, Lab/Beagle and Lab/Mastiff mixes. None of these had any health issues, and lived until their late teens. As I said, I have had good luck.

We got a pure bred miniature schnauzer way back in the day from a pet shop. Very sweet and smart dog but she developed uncontrollable diabetes in less than two years and we had to euthanize her.


At one point we were injecting her with 20 units of insulin twice daily, and it still wasn't helping. That is an incredible amount of insulin for a small 20 pound dog.


She never had a chance.

122 Here is my purebred - mixed breed contribution. Many years ago we lived near Bedminster NJ (an area of big estates and horses and hunting dogs.) We got a fabulous 10 week old puppy from a shelter there. Her mom was a purebred champion Black Labrador and her dad a purebred Chesapeake Bay Retriever. They lived on neighboring properties and apparently accidentally got together. Oops. When the puppies were born and it was obvious from their curly fur that Pop was a Chessie the Lab's owners took them to the vet to be euthanized. Dr. said "fine, I'll take care of it" and since he knew the quality of both parents and was disgusted by the whole thing, he secretly kept the puppies at the clinic until they were old enough to go to the shelter for adoption. Our Bayonne was a wonderful and smart dog. We always said we had a full bred Chesilab when anybody asked.

Saturday Gardening Thread: Spring! [KT]

Crocus-3z.jpg

Spring has sprung! At least in Kansas, where Don visited the botanical garden.

Winter hung on like the respiratory crud that was going around earlier this year, but it looks like it's finally gone. It won't officially be spring until the first tornado watch, but I did find a little color on my visit to the botanical garden this past weekend.

As always, his photos can be viewed in greater detail by clicking over to his post. You can work the jigsaw puzzle, too. He also took a photo of some daffodils that jumped the gun a little, early in the month. A photo that gives hope to those still struggling with ice and snow.

Outdoor Carnivorous Plants

Our resident outdoor carnivorous plant specialist, Tony Litwin, has sent in some early spring photos. This is one area of botany where knowing scientific names of your plants counts:

It's me again with pics of my plants I would like to share with everyone. Pic 1 is of Drosera Filiformis Florida Red( tall red plant ) and Pinguicula Primulflora( greenish yellow flat plant ), pic 2 is of Sarracenia Alata Rubrioperculata( tall green plant ) and Sarracenia Leucophylla Chipola River( tall white plant ), pic 3 is of Sarracenia Rosea Chipola River, pic 4 is of Sarracenia Flava flowers and pic 5 is of Sarracenia Alata Pubuscens.

Most of the rest of my plants are still coming up and are quite small right now, but in a month or so, I will have some very tall pitchers on some of my Flavas and Atatas. Anyway I hope you enjoy these early spring pics and I'll send more later in the spring when they are all up and eating.

Fascinating plants. Interesting forms. Which one do you like best? I'm kind of partial to the second one.

The edible garden

The only thing I have been eating out of the garden this week is chickweed. We will be doing more on weeds later. Edible and otherwise. You harvesting anything?

If anyone is planning on planting a grape vine, let us know and we will try to help with regional choices. Important in the case of grapes. In the meantime, we can answer questions like, Why do grapes explode in the microwave?

Critters

Dr_No sent in the following bit of anthropomophism:

The bird, viewed with just the right amount of Willing Suspension of Disbelief, could appear to be in the process of taking an on-stage / pre-performance bow prior to displaying his aquatic talents in the waiting water below ... or, maybe not. Sometimes a bird is just a bird ...

On the other hand, we set things up so we can watch their shows . . .

Illiniwek send the following update last week:

nothing popping up here yet but the 2" daffodils, but we had a warmer week and hopefully got most of the frost out of the ground.

This group of geese have come by a few times.

Hopefully last week was the last of the snow.

Quite a view . . . .

Gardens of The Horde

The Invisible Hand sent in some photos this week from San Clemente, but I am running out of time, so I am just posting one today, showing the menacing encroachment of the nasturtiums. If only all our problems were like this. I like the slightly creamy yellow ones in front:

10 Last week I mentioned our chives survived the winter and are growing fast. There are plenty to cut for use on eggs, spuds and in yogurt. A wonderful fresh taste. If the weather forecast holds we figure the lettuce and baby spinach can get planted soon.

For all the great ideas on the gardening thread (which I keep track of) this year will be a rather basic veggie garden: herbs, greens and tomatoes.

21 There are indicators that spring has arrived besides the date. The juncos and white-crowned sparrows, some of my favorite little song birds, have disappeared. They only come around when the weather is very cold and despite a few nights below freezing the the birds have gone back to the mountains.

31 We did lots of weeding and mulching this week, a lot of it to the aerial and vocal accompaniment of the most handsome red-tailed hawk I've ever seen. He's a local resident and calls almost constantly while in flight. At first I thought it was just because he was an immature, but that was over a year ago so I guess it's just his personality to "talk" all the time.

We've nicknamed him Bitchy Hawk, or BH for short.

33 it's kinda neat to drive by a pond and see fifty geese hanging out ... as long as it's not my pond. They are messy and hard on the landscape plants.

fortunately my house is close enough to the pond that they don't stick around long. Unfortunately the wood ducks (or others) don't like to nest here for the same reason.

34 Hope people came through those storms that swept through the country the last few days. We had high winds and about 3 inches of rain but no damage so we got off easy.

39 Things are beginning to happen here in Idaho's Treasure Valley (that's the Boise area, for any new Horde members). My midget yellow crocus are already starting to fade - I'll try to get a photo before they do. The blue hyacinths behind the kitchen are blooming well; the white ones are just getting started. Daffodil leaves aren't very big yet - I think they need water, so maybe it's time to get the garden hoses out of storage. Tulips both in back and in front of the house are a few inches high, looking healthy, but it's too early for buds. Hyacinths out front, normally slower than the ones out back, have at least all sprouted.

Some of the fall cilantro, and 2 (possibly 3) of the fall spinach plants are still alive - they need water as well, but rain has been a bit scarce, and we had very little snow here in the valley. At least the mountains got plenty, so we should have a full summer of irrigation water.

It must be spring because my husband's already done the first weed spraying. We have an unfortunate number of Bur Buttercup, and since I spend the summer in sandals, things that make burrs are bad in my book. It's also time for the annoying box elder bugs to make their appearance...

I've weeded all but one of the beds that need it, and turned the soil in 2 of them. In one bed, I still need to deal with the Chamomile That Took Over the Universe (and I thought the *chives* were bad.....). I tried shifting the compost pile but I think it's mostly still frozen inside.

We sawed up a pile of branches that had been sitting around the paddock, so now that mess is gone; though anything too small to be useful firewood went into the messy fall burn pile. I'm still working on the pile of leaves out front - I actually have to move the entire remaining pile around every other week, so the grass underneath doesn't die.

Indoors, we planted 2 seeds of Tomato 'Black from Tula' given to me by a friend in the next town west of me, who got them from a master gardener. Looking forward to seeing how they do.

Upcoming tasks include pulling dead leaves off the daylily behind the house, which has begun to sprout - getting some Roma tomato seeds started - turning the soil in the rest of the raised beds - turning the compost as soon as it thaws - and raking yet more leaves.

40 I planted asparagus in my yard a few years back.

You have to wait 3 years before you can pick it and eat it.

Not pick it, but cut it and as long as you don't cut it too close to the ground, it will grow back and you can cut it again. Ad infinitum.

But then, a #$^&* groundhog ate ALL of it right down to the roots.

Posted by: JT at March 23, 2019 02:06 PM (gW+6p)

41 So, today I ordered asparagus seeds from Amazon. and I'll try it again in the fenced in area of my garden.

42 That butterfly photo is amazing.
Most of my twenty orchids are in bloom.
Went berserk with spring fever I guess and bought six palms to be planted in our property as soon as I can convince my husband to do so. Being in so fl that doesn't sound too looney. The crazy part is that I also bought three hydrangeas. One has big beautiful white blossoms and the other two pinkish white. They are absolutely gorgeous. Unfortunately, I am in zone 10b. Not hydrangea friendly. I am thinking of planting them instead a little further north in a zone 9b property. Does anyone have advice with planting hydrangeas in Florida zone 9b? That house faces east and it is about 2 miles from the coast. The soil is soft and rich dark brown with a clay like quality.

46 I had no idea it could actually get too warm for hydrangeas - I live in zone 8a, and Hydrangeas are one of the old-time,virtually foolproof foundation plantings that you stick in the ground and watch them bloom for the next 50 years. As with any flowing plant, they like sunlight, but I've got a big one that really only gets noon and some afternoon sunlight, and it does great.

I like the traditional hydrangea (typically I'll get blue, pink, and purple blooms all on the same plant) but there are some new hybrids out, like the pure white. One is almost scarlet, and they are striking! I don't like Oak Leaf hydrangeas as much as my wife does, but they seem to be incredibly hardy and grow to be very big very fast.

Allegedly there are some air rifles with serious noise suppression but with some serious power, like 1,250 feet per second. I have a noisy one because not too many neighbors.

I kinda doubt you could kill with it, but you'd give the critter a hurting in the @ss it would not soon forget.

I've given up on anything but container growing on my balconies because of the deer. Now it looks like the hunters may not be permitted to kill them next season because of their variant of mad cow makes them unsafe for human consumption. Great. I counted 16 in the backyard last night. For about two minutes. Then they mysteriously disappeared.

I had the skidsteer guy out Thursday to clean my horse pens and had him dump in one back pen that I'm thinking to try to plant a grass and clover mixture in. Its an icky gray day, but it misted for just half an hour and quit so I should see if the tractor will start and try to work the partially composted manure into the dirt so I can plant while its still spring.

We used to have a few days each year when cedar waxwings were in our area. Several houses had some kind of climbing vine with berries that attracted them in groups. It was a fascinating sight. Sadly, those vines have died out and we don't see the waxwings anymore.

55 Several years ago I was taking a walk through the 'hood. As I'm walking a squirrel was ahead of me and climbed up a telephone pole. Suddenly a Hawk swoops don to grab it but missed. The Hawk lands on the ground and stares at the squirrel. I stopped walking and stood there to watch.

So the squirrel got pissed. Started chattering, came down the pole and went after the Hawk. I mean it charged the bird. Hawk kind of flew away onto a fence. The squirrel wasn't stopping. Charged the fence and started climbing up. The Hawk then flew away.

I started laughing. Never seen anything like that. Made my day...

57 We had a giant ligustrum tree (about 30 feet tall) at our old place in town. Needless to say, the berries were a major attraction for the cedar waxwings on their twice-yearly migration through the area.

Unfortunately when it gets warm, as it does in Texas, the berries ferment and the CWs get totally blotto. And then fly. Into windows. And die. We found 6 dead CWs on our front deck in one 24-hour period.

If you search for "drunk Cedar Waxwings," you'll see a lot of reports of similar behavior.

61 We have barely made it above 50 degrees here in central Hoosierland, and then not more than one day of warmth before the cold returns. Hoping the snow we had on St. Patrick's day will be the last of it. On a happy note, the birds have been singing like mad, particularly the wrens. This week we had a pair of bluebirds at the feeder, a rare treat. The local pileated woodpecker has returned to the tree stump in our yard to continue his mission of grinding the stump.

62 46.
The three hydrangeas that I just bought are the macrophylla (mopheads) type. It is recommended that they be planted in shady spots with only partial sun. Doing a little research I just found out that the paniculatas variety can take more sun.

The problem here in south fl is that the amount of sun especially in the summer can wilt even desert roses. Also our propertys soil is mostly rocks. Therefore need husband with a pick to help with planting. Our more central fl location has cooler nights and a richer softer soil. I can literally dig a hole for planting larger plants with a small shovel and my hands.
It's fun for me to have found potted hydrangeas for planting here in so fl. I'll do more research and try to give them the best chance of survival.

I envy you the ease with which your hydrangeas grow. Post some photos. Hydrangeas are such lovely flowers.

Bummmer about the groundhog. We had an asparagus bed on the farmer, planted by my Dad and Grandma when they moved there in 1947. Taken care of they can last for yrs.

Tried to transplant some when the farm was sold, only one plant lived in our backyard. I'm going to add some more this yr.

We always cut the spears just below the ground. They always send up new spears but around here your supposed to stop harvesting about the middle of June.

67 For those who would like to know, I grow all of the species of American Pitchers Plants(Sarracenias), the southeastern Butterworts(Pinguiculas) and Sundews(Droseras) only, as well as the southeastern Bladderworts(Utricularias). I grow them in a mixture of peat and pertlite and put a layer of volcanic rock on top to help keep the splatter down when the torrential rains come in about another 2 months. Right now except for a few that have open pitchers on them, the majority are just sending up pitchers and they will do so from now until November. Whats funny is watching the Wasps commit suicide climbing down into the open ones and not coming back out again. Carnivorous Plants are natures revenge on all the bugs out there that eat plants.

Mother Nature usually flounces off with one last .big snow around the last of March.

I had to leave all my beautiful crocuses behind when I closed a couple years ago. Every fall, I'd plant a few more bulbs. Few people ever saw them because they were in the back, but I got to see them every morning and every evening.

73 "Went berserk with spring fever I guess and bought six palms to be
planted in our property as soon as I can convince my husband to do so.
Being in so fl that doesn't sound too looney. The crazy part is that I
also bought three hydrangeas. One has big beautiful white blossoms and
the other two pinkish white. They are absolutely gorgeous.
Unfortunately, I am in zone 10b. Not hydrangea friendly. I am thinking
of planting them instead a little further north in a zone 9b property.
Does anyone have advice with planting hydrangeas in Florida zone 9b?"
Martell at March 23, 2019 02:12 PM

Personally, I would rather take my chances with hydrangeas than with palms (unless they're in pots). But as you discovered the macrophyllas are not suited to a lot of sun in warm-summer climates. The color of the pink ones will be dependent on soil pH - in acid soil they may take on a bluer tone. Might it be possible to grow them in part shade in a big pot with the kind of soil you really want for them?

Thread before the Gardening Thread, Censored [KT]

censore.jpg

Serving your mid-day open thread needs

Good morning! I expect that there will be further reactions to the Mueller report today, but all I am going to say, along with Tom Fitton, is that Hillary Clinton lost again last night. Feel free to add your own comments and reactions from the news as they come in. This is an open thread.

I thought I would touch on another subject that has been highlighted by the horrible attack in Christchurch, namely censorship and suppression of speech.

On Thursday, Ace posted a piece on President Trump's executive order re-affirming that colleges must defend the right to free speech or lose federal grants.

This order does not really order schools to do more than they're already supposed to be doing -- but it is a shot across the bow that the law will be actually followed going forward, and noncompliant schools will be punished as the law provides, and that "compliance" may be interpreted more strictly than it has in the past.

Because this is America. Not Britain, where a journalist who "misgenders" someone may be guilty of a crime. Speaking of misgendering, Jordan Peterson has been excluded from Cambridge because they have a policy of inclusion. As far as I can tell, this means that they are not willing to discuss his opposition to laws or policies forcing people to use the "preferred pronouns" of anyone who objects to being addressed by obvious pronouns suggested by their appearance, such as "he" and "she".

It is not quite clear to me why Peterson's book has been banned by a leading bookstore in New Zealand following the attack on Muslims in Christchurch. Is it a horrible thing for prospective mass murderers to clean their rooms? Reactions to their vaguely justified move have prompted the bookstore to disappear from Facebook and Twitter.

New Zealand has also banned the terrorist's manifesto, which seems less goofy. You don't want to go around glorifying the guy in the press, like, say, Rolling Stone glorifies selected Islamist terrorists. But this also makes it impossible to know that the killer was an eco-fascist. I was also interested to learn of his admiration for the Chinese government.

Comedy Central suppresses speech another way

One way Comedy Central produces its "comedy" is by interviewing people, then editing their words, even to the extent of cutting and pasting questions and answers so that the answer to question A is seen after question B. A Jewish Youtube guy from Australia recently turned the tables on one of their hosts, Jim Jeffries, by setting down his phone to record the interview:

What he also caught on footage, however, was Jefferies doing and saying things that degraded Islam that the left would be horrified by, especially in the wake of the Christchurch shooting.

Jefferies draws the prophet, Muhammad, before calling Islam dangerous. He also said wearing a burka is stupid, and compared Islam to a dingo. Then proceeded to say that if a dingo ate a Muslim baby it would likely vomit it up.

Jefferies wasn't worried about saying any of these things, as he openly admitted that he never looks bad in his interviews.

Uh-oh.

Once again we are reminded why many people refuse to be interviewed by the leftist media complex, and why they should refuse if they do not have a way to independently record the exchange.

Think this will change Mr. Jeffries' future?

Hope you have a better weekend than Mr. Jeffries is likely to have.

I don't get all the Dr. Peterson hate. I've read 12 Rules and there's nothing in it to cause it to be banned. That says more about that bookstore chain and the imbeciles that run it than anything else. They're another arm of Progda. I hope they go out of business soon as a result.

11 I haven't read Peterson's response to the disinvite, but he apparently started out mentioning that the Oxford Student Union released their crowing tweet about 10 minutes before the Oxford divinity school announced it, and that everyone failed to note that the invite had been brought up mutually after Peterson had lectured there, and was not some supplication by him alone.
Also, he objected that to that point no one had even told him about it, like you might if you were being any ways polite.

Jordan was also extremely critical of the Oxford Student Union's tweet, calling it unintelligible babble, which from what I heard of it quoted, it was: a stringing together of "must use"words in a very passive construction.

21 Peterson's background includes researching the systemic lies under the Soviet Union, and how it damages people to have to mouth what they know are lies.
He used that reasoning to defy a command to use all the "gender" pronouns which got him in the gyppo with his university and (some of) the Canadian government.
He compounded this by being extremely vocal about the need for both parents to be involved in a child's raising, and very vocal about the differences inherent in the sexes.

And the ultimate sin was to not go crawling when threatened.

Yes, on the one hand you don't want to give psychos the fame they so desperately want.

But on the other hand, suppressing the manifesto allows the lying government propaganda organs, aka "the media" to frame the event any way they want. I would say that is objectively worse.

50 Talking about Nicolae and Elena in the last thread got me thinking...

They were tried and summarily shot on Christmas Day, 1989, after 22 years of ruthless autocratic rule.

The trigger for this was the Party's decision to evict a provincial pastor in Timisoara. His congregants blocked the hallway to prevent Securitate from removing him. This tiny act of protest swelled when local students joined in, and the Securitate did what they always did, and started shooting people.

From there, it spread nationwide.

That eviction notice had been served on December 17.

You never know what the catalyst will be, and when it comes events move quickly.

Bullshit eviction notice to complete regime collapse in eight short days.

88 the university was at fault for charging tuition and not providing training that provided the students knowledge for a career
This is a great point.

Universities don't even do anything as honest as "charging tuition" in any kind of a good faith business transaction.

They have created an unassailable bureaucracy dedicated to tying tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars around students necks and cashing the gubmint checks as fast as they receive them.

Students are hammered from day 1 of college prep to " Turn In the FAFSA ASAP!!!" in order to be able to pay a few for the over priced ravings of a few elitist SJWs presenting such academically solid coursework as The Caucasian Heteropatriarchy Of Star Wars 301 and My Penis My Enemy 514.

And the colleges get free government handouts with zero liability while kicking students out the door with less than zero life and career skills.


Wonder why the drug-addiction and suicide rate is so high among the young?

The universities should be forced by law to cosign on those loans.

If we had a Congress that was worth a handful of birdshit they would be working on a bill to make this happen.

98 Here's a thought...

Opposition to most "conservative" (i.e. actually liberal) positions requires some form of consideration, some kind of engagement. The argument typically follows the form, "No, we can't do nothing, we have to do X because Y, Z, and you're a racist."

Opposition to most of the barbarians' positions (socialized medicine, civilian disarmament, forced acceptance of every societal perversion under the sun)... all that is needed to oppose them is the simple word "No." Or maybe, "F*ck no", if really necessary.

It's ultimately about negative liberty, I suppose.

You are free to be left alone. And if they won't leave you alone, you are free to make them leave you alone.

I think it was more nuanced than that. "You dumb paranoids think you need your guns to defend yourself from the Federal government, which is stupid. The Federal government would just use thermonuclear weapons on US territory to scour the earth clean of your unacceptable presence. 'Protect yourself from the Federal government', gosh, what a bunch of crazies you are. The Feds should nuke you until you realize you're overreacting."

So yeah, he wasn't great, but at least he wasn't boring, as most so-called comedians are these days.

And then he got a job with Corporate Comedy Committee Central. Where comedians go to get paid to mouth the corporate... perspective.

So here we are again, one of MY favorite catch phrases: Whores will always whore for money. It matters little which way they bend, they'll bend this way or that, because the john pays them to. So Jeffries is now just another boring left wing "comedian."

Obama was impeach-proofed ahead of time by threats of violence in the streets regardless of his crimes (which were many and varied)
Trump was set up for impeachment before he took office by democrats socializing this idea the day after the election
The potential harm done to an administration under investigation was brought up constantly to deflect criticism of Obama's extra-Constitutional (i.e. illegal) behavior.
No serious media person has talked about the harm being done to the country by the unremitting partisan attacks on the President and executive branch.
While all Obama-era hacks receive protection for their illegal behavior, anyone associated with Trump is fair game for ruination independent of any wrongdoing.

193 One of my more fun moments from several years ago:

Saturday morning, I was having coffee, playing "Farming Simulator", and I had just bought a Stihl chainsaw in-game to do some logging.

Late morning, went out to cut some actual trees down in my back yard, and the old craftsman saw wouldn't start. After years of screwing with this darned saw, I finally said, "Screw it, i'm going to the store and buying a brand spankin' new chainsaw".

So I bought a Stihl. (Husqvarna was too unbalanced for my tastes, and the Poulans and other brands they had were rinky dink P's of S.

And I realized later that day that I literally played a video game version of the exact same thing I was doing later on in real life....

There's a reason that almost every rational person for the last several centuries has been frightened of mobs, and has tried to stop mobs from turning into political movements. Apparently no one studies the French Revolution anymore. It's not just they do the most terrible things, and feel no remorse for doing them, but also that Mobs running off emotion *always* head straight for self-destruction. They can't help it, and once they get going, no one inside it has the power to stop it.

It's what we're watching happen to the Dem Party today. They're going to destroy their party, guaranteed - the only real question is, do they gain power and destroy this country as well, before they fall apart.

I was going through a Poulan every year or two. They don't like ethanol very much and starting them after a month or two of non-use was a nightmare. Most of my cutting is light duty and a 14'' is fine. So last year I went 40 volt electric.

The benefits:
Easy to start. Just press a button. Stops quicker then a gas powered. Fairly quiet, maybe half the db's of gas. Sufficient strength to go through hardwoods.
The minuses:
Short battery life, maybe 15 minutes of continuous cutting is all you can expect. Perhaps a tad pricey because of the battery.

The emotionally-driven pro-ghey contingent, self-assured that they occupy the moral high ground, are going to cause a schism in the church, and they don't care.

Oh, they will say "Nothing could be further from our minds...", but that is just a voiced rationalization to avoid acknowledging that their emotional wants and desires are more important to them than the well-being of the church.

No biggie.

Then Trump tells Nancy Pelosi to pass a bill allowing for all information in the report released and if it passes the Senate, he'll sign it.

She won't be able to pass it. But, even if she does, let the Turtle say he'll work to pass the same bill. There will be no redactions at all.

that hurts the Dims more than anyone.

And once again, either way the Dims look stupid and mean-spirited and reckless.

219 I bought a battery powered chain saw for the same reason a couple years ago - it's a mid size, a 16" iirc, and it doesn't cut the really big stuff - but then I'm way past cutting up really big stuff on my own.

221 Exactly which "abyss" are the Dems poised to fall into? As noted above, their control (or at least the mindset exhibited by the people in) of most major institutions is solid ("education", "news", pop culture, etc). A mindset that is a separate thing but amenable to their worst instincts dominates or at least is a major factor in other institutions, including law enforcement and most federal agencies.


Their electoral fate, unlike most of past history, seems unrelated to and unaffected by actual conditions in the country, or the effects of their policies (Trump being almost the lone exception, for quite some time).


And lets forget the "other" inertia that keeps the country on its degrading course. The GOP. The small % of voters who seem to put much thought into anything, or are working with actual information despite the complete collapse of the news/information systems in the country, are trapped. And while immensely better than the situation when Dems are in control of Congress, GOP control (as seen the last 2 years) falls far short in most areas of anything approaching a change in direction.

223 So last year I went 40 volt electric.

The benefits:
Easy to start. Just press a button. Stops quicker then a gas powered. Fairly quiet, maybe half the db's of gas. Sufficient strength to go through hardwoods.
The minuses:
Short battery life, maybe 15 minutes of continuous cutting is all you can expect. Perhaps a tad pricey because of the battery.

Just getting too damn old to pull the crank 20 times.

Have always used 18" electric chainsaws. Don't have the battery powered model. Still use a long cord. No problems even when having to climb up into trees to cut.

I love it. The one I have now is ten years old.

I believe part of the rules are that he has to let the President's office see the report a certain period of time in advance so they can form a response, not so they can dictate what is released or not.

The last 18th century saw movements to install representative republics in three countries. Each took a different path and experienced different results:

America: George Washington turned the mob into a disciplined army; an eight-year-long war was fought and won, a Constitutional republic came out of it.

France: The Revolution devolved into the Reign of Terror; Napoleon became their best option, twice.

Poland: An anti-military contingency that led to the country's inability to defend itself; conquest by neighboring countries and non-existence for more than a century.

241 The common identity of Shi'a is only one factor in what are unsurprisingly very sharp differences between Iraqis and Iranians (talking about the majorities in both countries). The Iran-Iraq War on the Iraqi side was fought (of course) mostly by Shi'a soldiers, conscripts, who showed little problem fighting hard against a "foreign" invader. Iranian influence in Iraq is unavoidable, but is mostly accomplished via old-fashioned levers like $$$$, and other practical aid, not some Shi'a solidarity thing (which doesn't really exist on a mass scale).


Pre-mature restoration of sovereignty, and of course a passive and pathetic "strategy" (WRT both Sunni and Iranian factors), wasted time and lives for a while, but it was mostly quickly and easily fixed, eventually (well, part of it). Then of course, all tossed away (to yawns across America).

Those institutions are on the brink of a cliff, though. Higher ed is living on borrowed time. The new media and pop culture are also fraying.

The problem with being the hegemon is that you have nowhere to go but down.

The other problem is that over the three generations or so that the Dems built their empire, they created heirs too stupid to run it.

Joe Kennedy was a cagey hombre. His kids were screw-ups, but still somewhat competent. His grandkids are useless at everything other than killing themselves.

That's why their candidates are not only crazy, but stupid.

253 Based on previous experience, and greatly reinforced by what's been revealed the last 2 years, I have absolutely no concerns about mass declassification.


Sources and methods are almost the only reason something is ever classified (legitimately) to begin with.


Given that it's now confirmed much of our senior law enforcement and intel institutions are populated with lightweights, idiots, and worse - and criminals to boot - I am completely serene letting Beijing and Moscow and Tehran learn the intimate details of how these clowns operated. Strzok? Brennan? Halper? Comey? McCabe? DOJ's FISA process? Are you kidding me? Let's see the full extent of the rot, and the idiocy, better to (perhaps) fix it.


It almost reminds me of the situation in WWII WRT the Abwehr, the German military intel service. Their foreign operations were *so* inept, compromised, amateurish, corrupted, etc., that Brit intelligence actually took careful measures to try and *not* disturb things, get people fired, etc.


Pretty evident much of our intel/LE system is a pathetic clownshow, both substantively and (and this is new) in terms of integrity. A holocaust will do it good.

CAIRO (AP) - An Egyptian singer has been banned from performing in her home country after suggesting that it does not respect free speech.

A video clip circulated online shows Sherine Abdel-Wahab, during a performance in Bahrain, saying: "Here I can say whatever I want. In Egypt, anyone who talks gets imprisoned."

Egypt's Musicians Union responded late Friday by barring her from performing and summoning her for questioning.

Samir Sabry, a pro-government lawyer with a reputation for moral vigilantism and suing celebrities, filed a complaint against the singer accusing her of "insulting Egypt and inviting suspicious rights groups to interfere in Egypt's affairs."

Last year, the singer was sentenced to six months in prison over a similar clip in which she joked that the Nile is polluted. The sentence was suspended upon appeal.

These countries have benefited immeasurably from multi-generational protection, support, sacrifice, and cooperation from the US, and due to the size/importance of the countries, it's been mostly one-way. So they're much more "dependents" than "friends" or "allies". And even further, if they are allies, that is based on real interests, which don't change because of specific episodes of criminal corruption at the top.


And the sort of idiots who would play these sorts of games with the idiots on the US side we are talking about, are just as important to flush as they are here.

Let's get a few things straight.

In the first place, even allies spy on each other. They also influence each other's elections. We do it to them, they do it to us. So let's stop with that whole line of argument.

The Brits and Aussies did what the previous administration asked them to do. Based on what they knew at the time (and most "experts" said), Clinton would succeed Obama. So they helped out their ally.

Instead, Trump won. Unlike in monarchies or dictatorships, our alliances don't necessarily end upon a change in ruler. Trump knew stuff was out there, and he wanted it.

So he used leverage to get what he wanted. And he got that.

I call that mature leadership. Besides, if the Brits and Aussies helped Obama, they can also help Trump - and they will be more likely to do it based the restraint he showed - and his ability to lose that restraint if they don't play along.

284 One doesn't "burn" a relationship by responding to an act of aggression and treachery. One burns the relationship by, well, acts of aggression and treachery.


And as noted, these are extremely assymmetrical relationships. THEY are the dependents and beneficiaries, by far.


In the case of the UK, the virtual collapse of their role as even a minor military power with any will or ability to project power only reinforces the logic.


In any case these relationships, or more specifically the important parts of value to both sides, cannot be "burned". They go on much as before.


The FSB has been quite forthcoming in providing us with useful intel on a common enemy - jihadis - of which the Boston brothers is just the most well known example. The Russian Federation is hardly an "ally".

292 No, let's get them really straight. The sort of "help" involved in a plot against one candidate in US elections is not what happens, it is not normal, it is not done. And intervention in the elections of the countries in question - not sharing polling outfits, or things like that, but colluding to pervert intel activities into political surveillance - is not done, and hasn't been, unless someone would like to increase our historical knowledge by citing an example.


Don't know anything about Trump getting what he wanted. In any case he'll be gone in 2 or 4 years, so it's about more than him, of course.


The relationship is based on interests (and, decreasingly, a common cultural and civil heritage). Those don't change, and they will remain, whatever the short-term institutional and personnel carnage occurs to fix serious problems.

Uh, okay. Whatever helps you sleep at night.

The UK and Australia had minimal involvement. What did they do? They sent some emails, maybe arranged a couple of meetings. Hardly coup material.

The real issue isn't that they obliged the Obama administration's request, it is that the Obama administration *made that request.*

As for what we got, I already discussed it. Hillary wrecked her servers. Now you can believe that NSA or someone can undo that, or you can understand that her emails are *also* in the inboxes of the recipients in Australia and the UK.

Some of those emails were "recovered" and they are very incriminating.

Is that meddling in US politics? Will Hillary facing criminal charges affect our election? You bet.

And that's how the game is played.

300 Manipulating an interviewee's answers when they are at odds with either the station or the interviewer's (usually the same) has gone on longer than you think. Even for petty news and non-famous interviewees.

I got interviewed once in Orlando, Fl about the proposed new regs about how late the downtown lake park was open. It supposedly was about the homeless but it was just political grandstanding and wouldn't have done much for the real situation; Homeless population rising.

I said as much to a news crew going around the lake interviewing the park goers during the evening (still light out tho).

I said as much as I said above. When the segment aired my interview was shown and she had me saying almost the opposite of what I had said and making flat statements when I provide some nuance to my answers. You know; context.

So I've never been surprised at nor believe anything anyone says on tv or in an interview. If someone else is supposedly repeating someone else's words and that person doesn't say that that's what they said then consider it a lie of some sort. Same in print. "Sources say" is the equivalent of "I just made this up".

Firestorms, where the fires created their own "weather" of sorts, occurred in other German and Japanese cities.


The nukes didn't have quite the same effect. They set all combustible materials within a certain range alight, of course. In Nagasaki the bomb fell off-target enough (north of town) that most of the damage in the city itself was in fact fire, but more/less a conventional fire, huge and all consuming, but not a firestorm. Think the city was too small and lacked the density to support something like that.

This. The bomb was not used on Germany because it was not needed. Germany was already defeated. Japan, on the other hand was not defeated, and had a plan to defend the home islands to the very last Japanese person left alive, if need be.

The Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs saved more Japanese lives than they destroyed.

This is accurate. The VP back then was not some sort of co-president. FDR ignored Truman. Nobody bothered to tell him anything important because FDR was in such great health.

338 In Nagasaki you can stand on the bridge that was the actual aimpoint for the second atomic mission (they missed, by a lot). It's sort of funny, there's just a small plaque in several languages on a stone mounting on the bridge, noting the details of the attack/missed aimpoint. A famous and very old bridge lies just a few hundred yards away, and the most famous bakery of the pound cake for which Nagasaki is known in Japan is nearby.


Not sure I believe the bombardier on that mission. Claims there was a break in the cloud cover. But they all knew they weren't bringing that thing to Okinawa (Bock's Car had a fuel problem, and with the abortive runs on Kokura, was desperately short of gas, ended up landing with fumes left on Okinawa, much closer than its home base of Tinian), or dropping it in the drink. He probably knew they were close, based on radar, and made the decision, bombs away.

(Also, eviscerating the Meiji mentality with such a cataclysmic event made Japan turn into a relatively decent country that's been prosperous for half a century now... a little bit weird of a place, but i dig it. Half a century of licking wounds and nursing grievances from a long, bloody, lost invasion could not possibly have ended so well for them.)

Sure, but the Japanese defense plans included using civilians as suicide bombers, even children. A few instances of that and the American soldiers would have shot every civilian they encountered. They were in no mood to "win hearts and minds" by that point.

Those who condemn the atomic bombings need to be made to explain how it would have been better if Japan had lost an entire Holocaust number of civilians in a conventional invasion.

343 Barr's office has now said he will not be issuing a public summary of the Mewler report until later Sunday at the earliest. So, probably next week, nothing today at this point.

Posted by: Calm Mentor at March 23, 2019 03:18 PM (ffYR/)

344 The number of lives saved - American, Japanese, and other - through earlier Japanese surrender was immense, even if the numbers can only be estimated.


Every day the war went on, the combat and non-combat excess deaths (as a demographer or public health type would put it) were large, and growing (esp. the non-combat). Few even seem to know, or at least recall, that vast areas of SE Asia and the SW Pacific and China were under Japanese occupation, and all these areas were suffering varying degrees of economic privation, not to mention in some cases outright abuse and murder from the occupiers. Japan itself was on the cusp of a public health catastrophe.


Even if Japanese resistance to invasion had only been half-effective, or coherent for a short period, the additional human and material damage (to Japan) would have been tremendous. And the public health situation in some cases would have collapsed.


Of course the irony is that the Bombs didn't "work" as intended, strategically. They didn't shock Japan into submission. The military was pretty unmoved by the bombings. Not entirely irrationally. They were just bombs. Japan had lost most of its major cities to conventional bombings (with similar casualties) over the last 5 months. The Army's initial briefing to the Palace was that they had "counter-measures" to deal with the new American weapon.


But the Bombs *did* provide the Emperor and his "peace party" advisors with a rationale for surrender. Which is enough.

Posted by: rhomboid at March 23, 2019 03:20 PM (QDnY+)

345 From everything I've seen about it, there hardly was a "decision" to use the bomb, to even be made. It was assumed it would be used, when ready. Logically enough. The greatest single public works project in human history, in the midst of total war, was not undertaken for the fun of it. Truman's approval seems pro forma, again, quite reasonably so.


The stupid (and they were stupid) ideas about demonstration drops off Japanese territory etc were never taken seriously. But they offered a perfect preview of the sort of "morally" driven, but actually morally bankrupt, and mere ignorantly morally narcissistic, silliness that bedevils us to this day.

348 Imagine if Truman decided not to use the bomb, and ordered an invasion of Japan instead. After 500,000-1,000,000 American combat deaths, if the existence of the bomb became known, Truman would have gone down as the worst villain in American history. And rightfully so.

354 Everybody who predicted that the Left would soon "normalize pedophilia" as the next step is social degeneracy, pat yourselves on the back for a correct prediction.

But how many of you predicted that the celebrity who would be the one to take the first step toward excusing pedophilia would be...Barbra Streisand??!??!??:

Barbra Streisand defends Michael Jackson's pedophilia molestation

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6841461/ Barbra-Streisand-says-Michael-Jacksons -accusers-thrilled-there.html

"Streisand said she believes the victims' claims, but felt bad for both them and Jackson, adding that Jackson's 'sexual needs were his sexual needs' and the blame should lie with the boys' parents.
...
Streisand apparently did say 'it didn't kill them', and much more about Jackson, who she crossed paths with throughout their careers, and his accusers.

'You can say "molested," but those children, as you heard [grown-up Robson and Safechuck] say, they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn't kill them,' she said.

'His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has.'"

Hey, pedophiles have their needs, too. It's just natural and normal! They were "born that way"! Stop blaming them and ostracizing them for being different!

If pedophiles and all the other gender choices are born that way, then so are heterosexual kids. Yet, converting heteros is to be celebrated while trying to convert the "misgendered" is considered abhorrent abuse. Wonder how Babs and others like her square that circle?

358
Never been a fan of Streisand. It's really not that exceptional a voice. Like so many people who have succeeded in life, it boils down to right place, right time. She happened to be there and got incredibly wealthy.

Her willingness to downplay pedophilia I'm really concerned about. I would think that Jews might be a little more sensitive to issues that stray into Nazi-level indifference to human life.

Any party willing to kill the unborn, the freshly born, or overlook pedophilia? That's just vile. The (D)'s can have her.

As far as Michael Jackson, as I've said in the past, I just believe he was an incredibly stunted individual, stuck in some adolescent circle-jerk of a never-ending boyhood 'Groundhogs Day'. We'll never know what was in his heart.

But so callously dismissing what we'll never know for certain, Barbara does no one any service. She should just stfu and keep worrying about high-minded matters like keeping people off the public beach in front of her mansion.

    41 Trump needs to do something dramatic and symbolic to rub in the Mueller news, punishing the core group of about 30 people who perpetuated this lie.

    I suggest he revoke the security clearances of everyone involved on the left, past and present government employees - including Adam Schiff and Richard Blumenthal.

    He has the power to do it. One stroke of the pen and these people will see nothing marked "confidential"or above. Also declare that he is instituting a special task force to specifically watch for any classified information leaking to this group and warn that it will be prosecuted to the highest extent if found.

    Hardball. Play it.

Took me the most time to figure out that instructions for getting blood in the meter manual were not for the meter. Every one of the fingers on my left hand has a hole poked in it. If the meter finally was reading right my blood sugar was down to 90.

    The Democrats are stupid, but they're smart enough to know their voters are stupider then they are, and if they keep telling the same lies over and over enough, which they have, it won't matter what the truth is.

    If Trump is going to win in 2020, if the almost-as-stupid R Party is to take back the House, it's going to be squeaky close.

    Why?

    Really bitches? That's exactly the opposite of what you've been strongly implying if not outright saying for two years
    Then, three minutes later, they'll go on about the SDNY investigation.

    The subpart is the narrowing of "no more indictments" to "no indictments of Trump" so they can still peddle their conspiracy.

    And now it's all, "well, we still don't know why Trump has behaved so weirdly toward Russia. We still don't know if he's an unwitting Russian asset."

    At least three times last night I heard 3 different people on CNN say exactly that, that Trump is a "Russian asset." Clapper and Dana Bash said it.

    The collusion was a lie so now they're alleging outright treason.

    105 iirc, we were told a special counsel to investigate Hillary would not be a good idea, since it would take too long, and regular FBI can do the job.


    and we are told (by "true believers"?) that the Huber/Horowitz et al thing is indeed ongoing, just about to reveal findings, and indictments. But it is DeepState ... so is it anything but bureaucrat butt buddies burying their own crimes?

    Two years obstruction of the president and interference in the 2018 election, the coup members should hang. A couple more million invaders have poured in, still no wall ... damage has been vast. DeepState are globalists, still running much/most of our government.

    MAYBE some will be more free to act with Acting Tyrant Mueller gone ... but he is not really gone yet. Like in the move What About Bob ... "you think he's gone, he's not gone" opens door, and there's Bob staring at him. (and there is an army of Bobs in The Resistance, all should be hung) imo

    Their voters are almost exclusively high functioning retards. Nothing will ever convince them that Orange Man Good.

    But there are a whole hell of a lot of persuadable voters who end up swinging elections ever cycle and they are not going to want another 2 years of a bullshit investigation. Not to mention the counter investigations that are about to be revealed.

    And then there is Ukraine where all of this really started. They do not want to go down that road.

    But hey, let them go full YOLO. They will be every bit as successful as they have been with fake Russia collusion scam.

    110 Watched Chris Wallace on Special Report and it was unbelievable how
    disappointed he was. He was actually holding out hope there would be
    damaging info in the report we have yet to see and made sure everyone
    knew how many people were indicted and that "process crimes" are very
    very serious.



    This guy is supposed to be an "objective" journalist.

    Yep, every single article or news report goes to great lengths to say how many indictments meuller issued and lists all of the guilty pleas along with convictions.

    It's almost like they have a talking points memo.

    One thing that none of them report on is the fact that no one was indicted for "collusion" and meuller couldn't convince a Grand Jury that Trump is/was guilty of anything.


    Now it's time for Trump to weaponize the report as msnbc is reporting.

    111 OK, out of left field question....

    Can some enterprising young Hordeling put me some knowledge about the John Birch Society?

    AFAIK, they were basically just rabid anti-communists, but i've also heard that they were explicitly a whites-only, segregationist movement as well...

    Of course, that strikes me at first as being nonsense, but is it true? I don't want to be pushing back against this point if it's actually true. Anyone got any good overviews of it to link to?

    I don't trust Google Fu for this one, because God knows the first three pages would just be lies anyway...

    112 Look at the Left-- their base is a bunch of hysterical, emotionally-stunted loonies. These aren't people who are applying logical thought to what they assert or what they see happening before them.

    Sure, they should have seen Mueller's report would be a dud, if only for the last six weeks when expectations kept getting reined in and people started leaving his office (or more likely when no convictions had anything to do with the 2016 election or Trump). But they have to follow the leader, see? They have to believe in their elites, who kept telling them Trump was going down soon, very soon, just keep tuning in for the news.

    Rational people would have prepared to lose. But these people aren't rational, and they can't understand simple facts or logic. They're taught that their feelz are what's important and what should make Reality.

    113 At least three times last night I heard 3 different people on CNN say exactly that, that Trump is a "Russian asset." Clapper and Dana Bash said it.

    The collusion was a lie so now they're alleging outright treason.

    The former director of the NSA has said it. The current Speaker of the House has said it.

    They will demonstrate just how fully capable they are of airbrushing out of history, the words that came out of their mouths.

    That's quite an accomplishment.

    Honestly, at this point I think anything less than secession and separation is impossible.

    The United States of America is no more.

    115 First I thought, "How dumb do you have to. be to throw a gun at a cockroach?"

    Then I read the story and realized, "Oh, that's not so bad, he threw a shoe at a cockroach."

    And then the gun fell out of the shoe, where he had hidden it, and he got a bullet in his foot.

    And I thought, "How dumb do you have to be to hide a gun in a shoe?"

    Also, can we have a Special Council now to investigate and indict everyone involved in this phony-baloney coup attempt? Seems only fair.

    117 It doesn't take a huge leap to imagine that Barack Obama was an Iranian/IRGC agent. Probably not actually true, but a plausible case can be made.

    There is absolutely zero evidence that Trump is any kind of foreign agent, in fact there's mountains of evidence to the contrary.

    Guess which one the talking assholes on the TeeVee run with?

    Come here, coffee, at least you never disappoint me.

    118 If Mueller wasn't going to find crimes committed by Trump himself, because he couldn't charge him, as the Democrats are all claiming is the reason for no more indictments, why:
    The need for a special counsel?
    Why the demand Session recuse?
    Why the months speculation on whether to depose Trump?
    Why the outage when Trump claimed he was cleared because Comey told him he was not under investigation?
    Why the claims that Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey?

    They're also insane. Consider their candidates:

    Hickenlooper took his mom to see hardcore porn, at the theater. Beto fed his wife shit and wants to run over kids. Biden can't help but grope the kiddies and expose himself to female SS agents. Gillibrand keeps covering up for the sex predators she likes hiring. Kamala sucked off a bunch of old dudes so she could get into politics. Cory Booker is a bug-eyed closeted gay who made up a fake friend and calls himself Spartacus. Bernie Sanders is an open Communist who writes fondly of his rape fantasies.

    These people all belong in a loony bin, and people who vote for them need a sippy cup so they don't mess themselves.
