5 Monet generally fails to move me, but I think I would enjoy this one in person.

(This is what I was going to say before you butted in, Kris).

When it's embiggened you really see how the paint is troweled on in clumps and I think it would be fun to explore that.

I have moderated my impressionist mania over the years because too much of it masquerades as impressionism but in reality seems more primitivist.

But Monet at his best has that lovely simplicity that hides complexity, and damn! His colors are so wonderful and pleasing.

28 There's an old mansion here on Lake Geneva, the family of which were great friends of Monet. He often visited them here for the summer. Upon his death, Monet left this local family with a number of his paintings, which they donated to the Art Institute of Chicago. I forget the family name. I think there is a wing at the Art Institute named for them, but I can't recall their name. They also were friends of the Henry Ford family and the Rockefellers, who they also entertained here in Lake Geneva back in the Golden Age.

30 Monet's waterlilies series was made in the later part of his life. He had retired to Giverny and had designed the entire gardens and landscape just so he could paint it. His whole purpose was to capture light, color and textures. So here you see the smoothness of the water's surface contrasted by the rougher forms of the lily pads. then you have the horizontals of the pond contrasted with the verticals of the willow branches. An finally, the dramatic arc of the bridge (shape that appears nowhere else in the painting) cutting through the center of the composition. And it's all done in a monochromatic blue/green tone.

Beautiful.

46 Also, these works tend to be yuge, so if you do get a chance to see them in person, go. Get real close so the composition fills your entire visual field and soak it in. Also getting close lets you see the brushstrokes. Then very slowly back up and let the image materialize in front of you.

Posted by: J.J.Sefton at December 10, 2018 09:08 AM (/9p9e)


No. And not a slam at you, JJ, who know how I feel, but I came to the realization a long time ago that going the "cringe" route plays right into the left's hands and sets a precedent that we, at this time, are the arbiters of what ought and ought not to be seen.

Which, of course, leads very quickly into, "Well, what about Birth of A Nation orJud Suss? Should they be allowed to be shown?"

The past is a foreign country, as has been said. I don't believe that a movie, song or painting should be wiped out because it - at this particular moment in time - triggers all sorts of modern bugaboos. It should be left intact as an example of what was considered common then and people should be allowed to decide for themselves whether they wish to continue watching it or not. Burning books and people, and all that.

And for grammie - I may be wrong. I was always under the impression that Vera-Ellen was anorexic, and you'll find that repeated in a number of stories and biographies. I do believe she had some sort of eating disorder, which is why her neck is always covered up in most any photo or movie still, but. . .

A friend who knew her for the last 20 years of her life is quoted as saying, "All of her life she wore something around her neck, a necklace, a choker, a scarf, a collar, etc., etc. It was her "trademark" like Van Johnson wore red socks. I saw her neck many times. It was lovely. . .like Audrey Hepburn's."

So I don't really know.

Good galleries should have good ventilation and climate control. Also, paintings usually aren't out in public all the time. They rotate them, for variety and protection. Light, even the special gallery light, can cause damage over time. Patrons also cause damage. And when a painting or sculpture is set to be displayed or put away, they are usually sent to the conservator's dept. for a check-up, cleaning and repairs -- if needed.

106 The past is a foreign country, as has been said. I don't believe that a movie, song or painting should be wiped out because it - at this particular moment in time - triggers all sorts of modern bugaboos."

I agree - although every now and then even I see something that really shouldn't have been done, even at the time. A couple weeks ago TCM had the silent version of Wizard of Oz, (not very good) and I watched it just because. There is one black character in it, who plays that movies version of the lion and who is mainly comic relief, and in the credits his name was given as "G. Howe Black". Now that was just wrong, in any time.

So far. We got probably 13 inches of snow, then sleet, and now it's snowing lightly again.

It's supposed to get above freezing mid afternoon so I'll go out and clean off the car then.

I should do all kinds of stuff around the apartment to maximize my extra day off.

114 I like this one. The setting is beautiful and looks like somewhere I'd like to be, the cool color palette is definitely my jam, and impressionism is basically what the world looks like when I'm too lazy to remember where I left my glasses.

119 MP4 - I saw Jud Suss in college in a film class once. Context is important--it was a class specifically about Nazi era cinema, how the works were structured for propaganda purposes. Nobody in that class had any illusions about the nature of what the piece was selling--the point was to study how it was done.

That class, and one or two others like it I took, are largely why I can't not notice the techniques in widespread use in modern American media to sell their own narratives.

122 When I visited Paris some years ago, I stopped at the L'orangerie Gallery. It was designed by Monet (built after his death) to display a series of his water lily paintings in the round. It was quite an experience. The paintings are huge and they surround the viewer. Guards make sure there is strict silence and no photography - you just sit and look and contemplate.

From the inside. I have never been blessed enough to test this though.

If you go from the bright, Turkish day into the dark, candle-lit interior, the arcade of windows that rings the base of the dome is supposed to be blinding. And then you're supposed to notice the enormous dome that just hangs there over head. I'm sure it was even more spectacular with the light then reflecting of the mosaics. THEN you also have the smell of incense and the sounds of worship. Wow.

Now that was just wrong, in any time.

That was the black actor Spencer Bell, who specialized (or, more precisely, was forced into) stereotypical "darkie" parts as a lazy, cowardly, shiftless, superstitious bumpkin.

It was Larry Semon, who directed Oz and played the Scarecrow, who insisted Bell be credited as "G. Howe Black." He did it again in 1925s The Perfect Clown.

If it helps at all, Semon was known in his day as being an arrogant dickwag, so him insisting Bell take that nasty name is right in character for him.

A good introduction would have mentioned this. I would have.

They did raid the Clinton Foundation whistle blower's house and seized his shit so the DOJ/FBI does know how to investigate.


They just have prioritized other things to investigate than the one's that would roll up their compatriots.

An outspoken conservative, Barr had gotten on Trump's radar screen that spring after he had written a newspaper op-ed vigorously defending the president's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey. At one point, Barr was ushered into a brief White House meeting with Trump, who asked him if he was interested in the job, according to a source who was present for the meeting. Barr demurred. He had other obligations, he said. He would have to think about it.

The Morning Report - 12/10/18

Good morning kids. Monday again and we have lots of linkages so here we go. The Mueller witch hunt and ongoing soft-ish coup against President Trump and We The People (E-Pleb-Neesta for any Yangs or Komes out there) takes the top slot for the first time in quite a while as the long-anticipated report from Torque-your-mudder Mueller is expected to be released. There will naturally be absolutely nothing of any substance or even remotely resembling this thing we call "the truth" insofar as the claims that the President conspired, collaborated, colluded or in any other way stole the 2016 election with the aid and assistance of Vladimir Putin. With regards to James Comey, the apple-robbing crooked cop who willingly allowed himself and the FBI to be used as a weapon to try and sabotage candidate and then President Trump, Daniel Sobieski over at American Thinker says it best: "Comey lied." His full essay on the subject is worthy of your time as is the usual outing from Victor Davis Hanson who unpacks the whole horrid thing. But the Democrats sure as night follows day will not allow a minor detail like the truth get in the way of using this mountain of nothingness to attempt to impeach the President once they officially preside over the House come late January. More on that later.

To the immigration and amnesty front we go where although things have seemingly quieted down on our southern border vis a vis the bought-and-paid for swarm of invading Central American peasantry intent on invading our country and claiming their right to citizenship (and our wallets), we have a Mexican national sentenced to 8 years for helping Bob Menendez with his love life, the US is adamantly opposed to the UN's effort to destroy our and the west's national sovereignty, more on that hack-in-black and thug DA who shielded an illegal alien criminal from ICE, and Humberto Fontova on the real refugees fleeing real tyranny that the media is strangely silent about.

To politics we go where the Sacramento Bee is having none of Kamala "Toe" Harris' Sergeant Schultz defense of her top aide's sexual harassment suit, John Kelly is set to ankle as chief of staff and Luap the Lesser is not happy with Trump's choice of Bob William Barr to replace him, Jerry Nadler, who wouldn't float if he was tied to the Hindenburg is seriously floating the idea of impeachment while, of all people, Maine Senator Angus King is warning of the implications if the Dems pull the trigger (which no doubt they will), Pew Research has an enlightening poll showing what happened after 8 years of Obama and SJW madness, Loopy Ocasio-Fiasco is mum about her support of Joo-haters, Schemer and Palsi are playing hardball over a potential government shutdown while the lame duck GOP is fighting hard to waste even more taxpayer dollars and line their pockets before time runs out, a look at the 2020 field from the Never-Trumper perspective, Tucker Carlson is wrong about blaming the President for the lack of a wall and Obamacare repeal, New York's lawmakers stink on ice and a very interesting case out of Massachusetts could have big implications if/when it reaches SCOTUS.

In First Amendment and Fake News Fakery news, the Media are total hypocrites when it comes to Heather Nauert's nomination to be UN Ambassador, Daniel Greenfield unpacks what the Leftist antipathy to Facebook is really all about, Loopy Ocasio-Fiasco lets her inner tyrant flag fly in response to Trump Jr., and more on that New York scheme to take away guns for wrong-think.

And segueing perfectly into the 2-A category, now that Jersey has effectively banned 10-round magazines, how are they going to enforce that law? And pint-sized putrid pre-pubescent punk Little Shitler Camera Hogg blasts Rubio and the Word of G-d, as well as a look at deconstructing the anti-gun cult.

At the foreign desk, I love Paris when it sizzles and evidently so does Belgium and the Netherlands, Canadians might torch Ottawa if Justin Trudeau pulls a carbon tax in Canuckistan, several essays on this Huawei incident including speculation from Spengler that the Deep State had the CFO arrested in order to torpedo Trump's trade deal with the Chi-Coms. Meanwhile, Deutchers go uber ballistic for guns, while Putin continues to make maneuvers around the globe including sending nuclear capable bombers to Venezuela to bolster Maduro, which also no doubt sends a message to Trump vis a vis Ukraine and the US Navy's maneuvering through disputed waters off of Japan. In related national defense category, the President taps General Mark Milley to head the JCoS and General McChrystal is putzing around in Afghanistan which begs the question, what the fuck are we doing there? And in the wake of the UN not condemning Hamas, the dark age pedophiles/bestiality enthusiasts celebrated by shooting up a pregnant Israeli woman. Meanwhile, an Irish professor in Paris had a little bit of an oopsie; he showed a drawing of Mohammed in his class and was stabbed to death.

Back over here, the US murder rate is taking a dive, a private prison operator in Illinois is pissing off the right/wrong people by actually reducing recidivism, a case involving the recouping of forced union dues is heading to SCOTUS, two essays on the US oil boom (thanks Obama, NOT), break up the Fed before they break us up, and a really interesting piece on Ron Wyden's wife getting mugged by reality here in the rotten apple. Also, a look at the fantasy of "free" healthcare, more on the Church sex abuse scandal, a Virginia high school teacher is fired for refusing to knuckle under to the transgender madness, and a good companion piece on the utter shambles (as intended by the Left) of American education.

In Red-Green enviro-Communism news, sea level rising is a hoax, Loopy Ocasio-Fiasco's plan to fight so-called "climate change" is an impossible and impossibly expensive shit-show, and California will now mandate expensive solar panels on all new houses. Hmm, what if I started a company to sell fake-but-accurate looking solar panels to the trade? Charge full price and give a 97% rebate - winning!

From hither and yon, two pieces on the Twitter shaming of Kevin Hart and the guy who just won the Heisman Trophy, the Left wants us to knuckle under and crawl and a look back at Alexander Solzhenitsyn on the centennial of his birth. Amazing how his words ring true today and serve as a warning to us. Hope we heed them.

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

I shall simply repeat what I wrote at the end of the ONT:

I am pretty sure they have no clue what would happen if they tried to arrest Trump and put him in jail. That would literally rip this Country in half.


Posted by: The Great White Scotsman at December 10, 2018 07:20 AM (JUOKG)


I disagree. The fact that we have not, in the face of blatant insurrection and sedition, marched in the millions on DC, means nothing will ever happen.

And, if the morning host I am listening to is correct, what the Dems will do is impeach Trump. And then -

- if he is removed from office, jail him.
- if he survives, jail him the moment he becomes a private citizen.

The Dems will orgasm in public, the RINOs and cucks will orgasm in private and Trump's supporters, beaten down by endless repetitions of "respect the rule of law!" and "that's not who we are!" will, sullenly and bitterly, go back to work supporting the army of traitors and parasites who make up the majority of the country.

Prove me wrong. I dare you.

46 NJ didn't just ban magazines greater than ten round, they provided no grandfather clause, offered an insane 180 grace period to destroy, remove from the state or turnover now illegal magazines, effectively turning every NJ gun owner into a felon.

The vast majority of NJ gun owners are felons today.

They will not go door to door but they may start doing raids at gun ranges and woe to anyone stopped for a traffic infraction on their way to the gun range and you are caught in a car with a controband magazine.

And this law is aimed, not at increasing safety, but at legal gun ownership.

And here's another nugget of information...

The vast number of potential gun related charges for real criminals, ie having a gun at the commission of a robbery, are typically dropped or plead down to virtually nothing so as to by pass the mandatory minimums for hardened criminals.

This situation is intolerable and hopefully the SCOTUS takes up this case but pretty much since Scalia's death the SCOTUS has signalled they don't give a shit about the 2nd amendment.

So, I read the comment and I understand and generally agree with our friend's analysis.

Except for one thing: unpredictability. Can you imagine a more self-centered compliant populace than the French? And yet, a tax - albeit a very large one - has caused Paris to get torched and is now spreading to the Benelux countries.

Yes. We have tolerance for the intolerable and sense of responsibility that precludes us from turning into Occupy Wall Street.

For now.

Would the impeachment or forced removal from office of PDT change things? Who knows? And that's where I differ from MP-4; he's sure it won't change a thing.

From Comey, McCabe, Strozk and Mueller's actions and actual words, they regard Trump similar to and in many ways worse than the Mafia.

Since it is Europe, they are reverting to the usual standards, SO it might be different here (then I think about the massive outcries from the FBI against Comey and from the DOJ against Lynch).

Please expound on the predictions that I have made that haven't come true?

Has anyone been indicted?
Is anyone in serious jeopardy of being indicted?
Viewed through the prism of the recent raid of the Clinton Foundation whistle blower, do you believe the FBI/DOJ are no longer rouge agencies?

Viewed through the prism of Trump EO for DOJ/FBI to comply with congressional requests for Russia Collusion/Trump/FISA work product and it's subsequent turnover of release authorization and scheduling to the IG and of which nothing has been authorized by the IG to turnover at this time, do you believe these documents will ever see the light of day?

You seem to believe big thing are underfoot and that the treasonous bastards are going to be brought to justice.

I see nothing that would lead me or anyone to that conclusion.

Of course there's a vestige of decency. You can regularly find it by reading sunnyskyz. In addition, the Morning Report-as thorough and helpful as it is, is not the place to find human decency usually. Sometimes you find a "Today's feel good" story that J.J or that Mishum posts. if you want to look for decency look at people being concerned about each other's troubles on here and IRL and praying for them and sometimes contributing on websites or offering helpful suggestions . Look for it in the people you love still here, family and friends and (sadly) people you love whom have gone to be with the Lord. Thank of all the people in your life who have blessed you with care. I look for it in my faith. It all depends on where you put most of your focus.

Except this semester. Where he has decided that turning things in "scares" him, and he is now an F student.

Well, that's really,really helpful on college applications!

But it gets better. His mother (we are divorced, thankfully, and with whom he spends 3/4 of his time) has decided that it must be my fault.

Oh and I was scheduled for some surgery Thursday, and I was like, hmm, I haven't gotten any pre-op info and I talked to the scheduler, and she's like, oh, that's because we couldn't do it that day, we have December 26th?

Excellent idea. I am praying for our President and his family.

In my family life is good despite the minor set backs of everyday life.

Dragon Dr. wife had a successful bilateral hip resurfacing this summer by arguably the best hip surgeon in the world, Dr. Thomas Gross, Columbia SC.

Hip resurfacing leaves femur 100% intact, will last a lifetime, and leaves you with no restrictions. Only a few surgeons are capable. Dr. Gross and his team are the most capable.

Dragon pilot daughter is working her way up the career chain, teaching and charter flights. Next step air ambulance position. Her 88 y.o. Grandfather got fly with her this year. I was terified he would grab the yoke or stomp on brakes, but all went well.

And I am blessed to have both of these wonderful strong competent women in my life.

May you all be well today. May you all find blessings in yourlives.

Work calls.

322 What about "Abraham" from Holiday Inn. Even I kind of cringe.

Posted by: J.J.Sefton at December 10, 2018 09:08 AM (/9p9e)


No. And not a slam at you, JJ, who know how I feel, but I came to the realization a long time ago that going the "cringe" route plays right into the left's hands and sets a precedent that we, at this time, are the arbiters of what ought and ought not to be seen.

Which, of course, leads very quickly into, "Well, what about Birth of A Nation or Jud Suss? Should they be allowed to be shown?"

The past is a foreign country, as has been said. I don't believe that a movie, song or painting should be wiped out because it - at this particular moment in time - triggers all sorts of modern bugaboos. It should be left intact as an example of what was considered common then and people should be allowed to decide for themselves whether they wish to continue watching it or not. Burning books and people, and all that.

324 [So unless Trumps short circuits this clown show now, he's only delaying the inevitable day of reckoning and the reckoning will be the
Deep State/Donks/GOPe taking him out.]

Is it possible Trump is calculating when the release of the documents will have the most impact. He releases them now, the story gets lost in the holiday shuffle. He releases them in 2020, he pisses off his base and independents just in time for the election.

He's like Louis de Palma trying to calculate the exact best moment to release the records.

Merry Christmas


I don't particularly care for "Happy Holidays," in the sense that I want to use my largest knife and gut the utterer of that horrid phrase, then decorate his head with his intestines while I flay him with my sharpest boning knife.

Wait....did I say that out loud.

I am immensely pleased to be Jewish, and wouldn't have it any other way, but the reality is that America is, for the time being, a Christian country, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with saying "Merry Christmas!" In fact, it is a rather nice phrase that conjures up notions of kindness and fellowship and happiness and all sorts of anti-SJW sentiments.

So when you see me on the street, please don't say that horrid phrase. A simple, "Merry Christmas" is a delight, and it is a phrase that should be much more widely used. And if we are going to be honest, Christmas isn't really just a religious holiday any more. It is secular and inclusive and a lovely excuse to smile and be happy and say nice things and overtip and let the earnest but hopelessly incompetent clerk think that he is doing a good job. Life is going to have lots of chances to beat him into the dirt, so maybe you not taking the first swing is a good thing.

So...From this Jew to you deluded heathens...have a merry Christmas.

If you're serious about this, a good veal stock will matter more than that choice. Although veal can be really hard to find these days.

I'd go with sherry. Cognac has strong flavors that are not that welcome, though if you plan to get the onions really really brown, it won't matter so much. Fino sherry, not the sweet stuff.

On a bike, yes. It was as easy as swapping a headlight. If the high and low beams are on the same unit, there can sometimes be an issue where the circuit doesn't get as much resistance from the LED element as it would from a traditional filament, but there are inline resistors you can get for that, and it doesn't seem to happen with name-brand LED drop-in replacements. If it happens, you'll likely see both high and low beams lit at the same time (even if you haven't engaged high) and the blue dash indicator will be lit.

I was leafing through my university's latest course catalogue. This is a gem:

Case Studies in Global Justice
This seminar will introduce students in the Martin Luther King Jr. Scholar Program to the study of social justice in an international and comparative context. In general the seminar is designed to engage scholars in analysis, discussion, writing, and action that will contribute to the development of global citizens who have the skills, perspectives, and motivation to work effectively for social justice. Each seminar will examine a particular case study while utilizing the work of Martin Luther King Jr. The seminar also provides the academic framework that explores the nexus between race, migration, and social justice. Through both individual and group work students will work to draw conclusions and life lessons from their international research and experiences.

Anyone going into this one as a normal is virtually guaranteed to come out of an abnormal. And I suspect (but obviously can't say for sure, not knowing him personally) that King Jr. would probably abhor modern identity-based "justice" movements.

Have not, and will not. At least until they improve the optics. I see a lot of them in late-model cars, and in big trucks. Both types seem to have a problem with the cut-off on the upper edge of the pattern. As in, there isn't one. Great for illuminating night-flying owls, and blinding other drivers, but they don't get a beam down the road to illuminate distant hazards. The users drive in a brilliant pool of close light, and fool themselves into thinking their world is well-lit, but beyond that pool of light, they are blind.

IMHO, you would be a lot better off with a good set of E-code halogen lights, for a lot less money.

Steerable headlights were invented in the 1930's, if not earlier. Never seemed to become popular. I think the problem with them is that they respond to steering wheel movement, but that does not necessarily represent where the road ahead of you is going.

199 Case Studies in Global Justice
This seminar will introduce students in the Martin Luther King Jr. Scholar Program to the study of social justice in an international and comparative context. In general the seminar is designed to engage scholars in analysis, discussion, writing, and action that will contribute to the development of global citizens who have the skills, perspectives, and motivation to work effectively for social justice. Each seminar will examine a particular case study while utilizing the work of Martin Luther King Jr. The seminar also provides the academic framework that explores the nexus between race, migration, and social justice. Through both individual and group work students will work to draw conclusions and life lessons from their international research and experiences.

Anyone going into this one as a normal is virtually guaranteed to come out of an abnormal. And I suspect (but obviously can't say for sure, not knowing him personally) that King Jr. would probably abhor modern identity-based "justice" movements.

252 I remember reading somewhere that European legal authorities have generally taken a positive attitude towards moving headlights and Americans a negative one.


Posted by: 18-1 at December 09, 2018 11:06 PM (cRkMZ)

The Europeans were a lot more adroit at adopting bulb-type halogen headlamps than was North America. Hence the "E-code" on the lenses. France also went with "subtractive yellow" lenses, which filtered out the blue end of the spectrum, and reduced scattering in fog and snow (scattering being wavelength-dependent). That's another knock against LED and HID headlamps; they tend to be so "white" they look blue. bad for scattering.

There is a reason that foglights were (and still are, some of them) made with amber lenses.

I am sure there is an element of that. But it's harder to focus LED's, too. Traditional headlights have a wire filament that is almost a point source, so the reflector/lens optics were not too hard to work out. And they had about a century of experience doing it, too. LED's have a cylinder with strips of flat emitters over an inch or more. Not a point source at the scale of the reflector.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at December 09, 2018 11:22 PM (fDU8w)


It probably depends on the design and build quality of the LED. The lamp I replaced was an H4, so it has discrete high and low filaments about 3/4" long or so, suspended across a transparent tube. The LED I replaced it with has a solid tube with a single element 1/4 the size of a postage stamp on top for the low beam and on the bottom for the high, with one of them further forward (I forget which one). It's very clearly designed to use the reflector to cut off the low beam pattern so it doesn't glare oncoming drivers. I've seen cheaper ones that don't have that kind of design consideration and just have LED elements up and down the barrel.

312 you know, since the whole massage thing is going national in a big way with massage chains, lost of morons are likely to get gift certificates for massages this holiday season.

you should know that the default massage does not include a happy ending at the chains. however, like most chains they do have the secret menu.

when the masseuse is done and says "well how was that!", should you want the happy ending you should say " well it was ok but I am not happy." then roll over on to your back and show her how to rectify that.

do not talk about chakras and release and that shit.

Got the entire rotating assembly back in the case, and buttoned up, and the two band servos installed, with their plungers engaged with the struts on their bands.

All that remains to do is to install the valve body and solenoids, and put the pan on it. Then back in the truck it goes.

328 It probably depends on the design and build quality of the LED. The lamp I replaced was an H4, so it has discrete high and low filaments about 3/4" long or so, suspended across a transparent tube. The LED I replaced it with has a solid tube with a single element 1/4 the size of a postage stamp on top for the low beam and on the bottom for the high, with one of them further forward (I forget which one). It's very clearly designed to use the reflector to cut off the low beam pattern so it doesn't glare oncoming drivers. I've seen cheaper ones that don't have that kind of design consideration and just have LED elements up and down the barrel.
Posted by: hogmartin at December 09, 2018 11:32 PM (t+qrx)

True, dat. LED headlamp design is in flux. And I don't think there are LED's on the market as yet that are as intense as light source, in terms of lumens/emitting area, as HID's or incandescent bulbs.

I am reasonably happy with the stock lamps on the vehicles I own. If I wanted to upgrade, I would leave the stock headlamps, and add on fog lights, and a halogen long-range lamp. I had that setup years ago on a Datsun pickup, and it worked great. I could see road signs 2 miles ahead.

The rest is just "don't be a burden, pay your own way, and prepare yourself and your kids for the future". It used to be called "being an adult". Most people of even basic intelligence realize the world isn't perfect, and being "free" doesn't mean never having to pull your own weight.

Is anyone else amazed at the way the posers who claim to be idealists and want the best for everyone ALSO demand to be supported and coddled no matter what worthless pursuit they dedicate themselves to?

A good cop! Really, there ought to be a rule in law that traffic lights could be treated as stop signs in the absence of conflicting traffic. "Conflicting" here meaning traffic that could conceivably reach the intersection before you clear it.

I seem to remember reading that British traffic law requires one to use turn signals only if there is another road user that could benefit from knowing your intention.

Reach out, and turn the bike off with the key. All the way to the OFF position.

Turn it back ON, and re-start the bike.

The magnetic field surge from the starter windings ought to trip the sensor coil under the pavement.

You DID think to bring the bike to a stop Dead Atop one of the sensor cuts in the pavement, didn't you?

Over the years, this worked for me about 80%~85% of the time.

Times it didn't, I'd tend to just hit it n' go, when traffic availed.

Heavy traffic at a major intersection? There'd be a car behind me, soon enough.

Here's the frustration. The crews that adjust and maintain the lights, can adjust the sensitivity of the coil right there from the intersection control box.

But, being mostly lazy, they mostly don't.

385 If you notice unusual weight gain, dizziness, suicidal thoughts, irritability, loose bowels, scaly crusting of your skin, projectile vomiting, extreme body odor, urethral discharge, sensitivity to the color red, the uncontrolled growth of hair in your nose, bloody oozing from your eyes or ears, the urge to howl at the moon, stars or asteroids, the sudden loss of fingers or toes, discontinue your use of Celebet and consult your doctor.

Never joined Twitter or Facebook so I don't know what automated censors they use. But after the same reaction to cocksucker and its variations, I wonder what would happen if you referred to the person as 'an enthusiastic sucker of penises'? The individual words are innocuous.

Gotta add some descriptors to phuch up their algorithms.

"Enthusiastic sipper of penis" and "likely to hold a penis in mouth until the swelling went down" would probably make it past their filters as it indicates you may have a rather high intersectionality score, and are therefore in a protected class.

Christmas was Jan. 6th until the switch from Julian to Gregorian calendar. Jesus was born in Bethlehem, though not certain of the relevance. The "Christmas Tree" is not a Christian Symbol at all.

See 1 Samuel ch 16, vs 1. The Lord sends the prophet Samuel to Bethlehem, where he will anoint one of the sons of Jesse as king to succeed Saul. In 1 Sam 16, vs 12, the Lord tells Samuel to anoint David as His chosen one.

476 1K+ arrested, some violence (lots of viral videos of cops getting physical with protesters). Macron to address the nation tomorrow.


Sweden - rallies, mostly opposing the migration pact that Sweden is poised to sign.


Belgium - some roughness in public demonstrations - again, mostly about migration pact.


Italy - happy bustling public rally in support of dep. PM Salvini and "Italy First" theme


Poland/Warsaw - bustling night-time Christmas light displays/parades, with no barriers and minimal security (contrast German Weinhachtsmarkt situation)

Posted by: rhomboid at December 10, 2018 02:17 AM (QDnY+)

477 Migration pact is issue in itself, but also an obvious lightning rod/focus for Euros opposed to immigration madness of the last 3 years (and in some cases a different sort of madness going back decades).


Even UK is going to sign the pact. Only central Europe (and Austria, Australia, maybe Italy) is saying "no". Not sure about Switzerland - they've been struggling with balancing independence and commerce (with blackmailing EU) - they're sort of stuck, since treaty would have to be approved by legislature or electorate, which ain't happening.

What does Switzerland risk by not signing that damned immigration compact? How would not signing it affect them financially? Is there some sort of trade prohibition woven into the pact against non-signatories?

Posted by: Blonde Morticia at December 10, 2018 02:33 AM (oGNNA)

481 Ian Galt - some certainly are waking up, but how much that matters seems to depend on circumstances. In Italy, it's brought results - migrant invasion has essentially been stopped, compare to recent years. 2 NGOs enabling the invasion with maritime activities in the Med have cancelled operations - a sign Italy has finally taken effective action.


Ironic about Trump. Europe (or parts of it) might - might - be adopting a more sensible migration policy. But in the US, the situation has gotten worse, and may get much worse. "Sanctuary" crap. Asylum/family unit scam (record numbers being released into the US). Zero serious action on border security. Numbers don't lie. Unknown unknowns are always the ones that surprise you - but I don't see any realistic prospect for improvement until at least 2021 - if then.




Posted by: rhomboid at December 10, 2018 02:38 AM (QDnY+)

482 EU is (of course) Switzerland's largest trading partner. EU has threatened repercussions in various situations where the Swiss have wanted to buck EU policies on different things. So there's your economic impact - pact itself has no mandatory actions or enforcement element, I don't think. There have been previous confrontations over deportations and other things where Swiss judicial actions have been challenged by EU. Seems most Swiss still are sane, seek to preserve their independence and sovereignty, but are seeking ways to minimize backlash from the EU. A recent referendum placing Swiss constitution above all treaty commitments (simplifying) failed, reportedly on concerns about business.

If a male teacher sent a underage student pictures of his junk.....or even of his shirtless abs, it would be wildly inappropriate and the teacher would be disciplined, and you guys know it.

There is absolutely no reason there should be a double standard on this. If a guy would get punished, a woman should be too. Whether she has great boobs or crappy boobs or no boobs is besides the point.

Well...for one, that's the maximum, so I highly doubt she gets that. Better to start there and work their way down than to start low and she gets off with a slap on the wrist.

Also...that includes 4 counts. If it was just once, it would obviously be much less. So, for the one count, if you consider someone, male or female, would likely get much less than the maximum, less than half even...it's much more reasonable.

541 When people go on about Christmas being "pagan" they overlook the fact that it celebrates the Incarnation, the taking up of manhood into God. When the Word was made flesh, it sanctified creation in a new way, with a new kind of union with God.

Since paganism per se is just the natural human response to a sense of divinity, all that had not been polluted with sin is included in that. The only real argument is exactly how far the pollution had spread. (E.g., Augustine was much sterner on this point than Chesterton was.)

I disagree. The fact that we have not, in the face of blatant insurrection and sedition, marched in the millions on DC, means nothing will ever happen.

And, if the morning host I am listening to is correct, what the Dems will do is impeach Trump. And then -

- if he is removed from office, jail him.
- if he survives, jail him the moment he becomes a private citizen.

The Dems will orgasm in public, the RINOs and cucks will orgasm in private and Trump's supporters, beaten down by endless repetitions of "respect the rule of law!" and "that's not who we are!" will, sullenly and bitterly, go back to work supporting the army of traitors and parasites who make up the majority of the country.

Trump will be arrested and jailed within weeks post Presidency and probably get the Whitey Bulger treatment within a month.

Gwynnie reminds me of those radio jocks who got sued after they held a contest to see who could drink the most water at one time. Some poor dumb woman drank a few gallons, and then died.

Poor jocks were flabbergasted. How can drinking water kill you? It can't hurt you, it's natural!!! They'd never heard of water intoxication (where a person drinks too much water too quickly, and dilutes the level of electrolytes, like sodium, in their blood, which can be fatal.)

Just because it's "natural" doesn't mean it won't kill you, Gwynnie.

Gun Thread: All I Want for Christmas Pt. 2 [Weasel]

remington-ad scaled.jpg

And who doesn't want Christmas to last a lifetime? Hmmmm? Commies and Liberals, that's who!

Last weekend we had some fun talking about BB guns, something many of us started out with as kids, and which several of you mentioned still having to this day. This week let's take a look at the next step on the gun ownership ladder which for many was a .22 caliber rifle. This is the time when the good lessons you learned in the backyard shooting BBs begin to pay off!

stevens ad scaled.jpg
Santa delivering Guns!

At some point you probably put down your Daisy Red Ryder and started looking for something a little more powerful. Maybe a rifle to hunt squirrels or to shoot cans off or a fence rail. There are many possibilities with this great cartridge.

christmas ammo 2 scaled.jpg
Pop some caps in asses for Christmas!


The 22LR cartridge was introduced by the J. Stevens Arms & Tool Company in 1887, as a hybrid of the 22 Long and 22 Extra Long cartridges, falling between the two at 1.0" overall length. Bullet weights vary from 20gr to 40gr with a wide range of velocities from subsonic to nearly 2,000fps, and with a maximum effective range of about 150 yards. The rimfire 22LR cartridge is extremely economical to produce and for this reason has become a favorite of shooters around the world. The same cartridge used in rifles is also wildly popular for handgun shooters. It's often the introductory choice for new shooters due the negligible recoil and is used for plinking, hunting, pest control, marksmanship training and competition at all levels. It is a truly versatile round, and is a great option for the young and old alike.


Savage 19 Scaled.jpg
Savage 19 NRA Match c. 1920's

Here's an interesting rifle - the Savage Model 19 NRA Match. Designed to satisfy the demand from shooters trained on military bolt action rifles, the Model 19 was one of the first to capitalize on the civilian competitive shooting market. It's barrel and receiver are cut from a single block of steel and the apeture style rear sight is fully adjustable for windage and elevation. It's truly a competition rifle and is a lot of fun to shoot!! I have spent many an enjoyable afternoon plinking at a steel plate from 75 or 100 yards with this rifle and not worrying a bit about scores or group size or anything other than simply having a good time. It's also a great training rifle and some reports indicate several thousand were purchased by the military for basic marksmanship training purposes. In my opinion, these rifles are under appreciated in the collector's market and can sometimes be found for as little as a few hundered dollars.

One for Dad, too!!


But what's a good choice today? If you're buying for a little Moron, something a little more in the "general purpose" category might make sense. Fortunately, many options exist and today's buyer will find offerings from nearly every major manufacturer; including Savage, Remingtom, Browning, Ruger and others. In fact, so many choices exist with regard to design and function, it probably helps to have a good idea of the most likely application before heading to the gun store.


ruger 10_22 scaled.jpg
Ruger 10/22


Here's a great choice - the semi-automatic Ruger 10/22. Available with an array of features, prices for this superb little rifle generally start around $250. This is a rifle that anyone would be happy to see under the tree! The examples I have seen are well made and are good shooters.

Do you have a .22 and do you shoot it often? How many of you have kept the rifle you had growing up? When was the last time you went shooting just for the fun of it? How about ammo? Do you have a favorite, what is it and why?

Here's a cool video from a couple of weeks ago on the manufacture of 22LR ammunition. Check it out! Cool Video: 22 Manufacturing Process

Can you reload 22LR ammunition? Why, yes - yes you can! Although it seems like a complete pain in the ass, it apparantly can be done if you're really out of other options or just have some time to kill.

This Old Gun

22 caseless pic scaled.jpg
Neon Madman bitch slaps us with knowledge!

This week's old gun is once again comes to us from our ol pal Neon Madman, after having read last week's BB gun thread, thought he'd share from his collection. Neon madman tells us:

This is my Daisy VL .22 caseless cartridge rifle, the first production rifle that used a caseless cartridge . Daisy manufactured it in 1968 and 1969, making about 23,000 units in three models. The cartridge is a .22 bullet with a chunk of solid propellant on the back, and is ignited by a jet of compressed hot air. It was an ingenious system, but between the gun control efforts in 1968 and the fact that Daisy wasn't licensed to produce firearms, the company dropped it. I purchased this from the hardware store where I worked at the time (197 for $39.95, and later found a brick of 1000 rounds of ammunition. It has been fired three times, and in the safe since then.

Now how cool is that? I'd never even heard of this type of gun. Thanks Neon Madman!!

5 As a kid, Dad would take us to the Southern Pacific freight yards in downtown LA to pick out Christmas trees. They came in boxcars and were packed in ice that stood at least a foot deep on the railcar floors. The trees would be dripping wet. They probably came down the SP Coast line from Oregon. And all this was open to the public.

We would climb in to the boxcars to look them over. He had a limit of $3 for a 10-12 ft Douglas fir. "They wanted five bucks! It's highway robbery, I tell ya!" We would strap the tree to the top of the red and white Pontiac Super Chief wagon and drive home.


Dad, I wouldn't have the heart to tell you what I just paid for a 12 ft tree today...

6 22s are fun to shoot and as cheep as you can get for ammo, not a fan of relying on one for defense.

Posted by: Skip at December 09, 2018 07:15 PM (/rm4P)

7 I have a few .22's, like you do.

I just bought a SIG 250 in .22 but it hasn't arrived yet.

Apart from that, I have been practicing with my new Ruger 10/22 takedown. The rifle only works with Ruger mags, sadly, but it's super portable. It breaks down and fits in a yoga mat bag. Sufficiently accurate and very easy to clean.

.22 is a filthy, dirty girl and needs lots of regular cleaning unlike my 9mm pistols.

I kinda wish I'd bought a M&P 22. I can't justify another .22 rifle, though.

11 The santa-themed bullets are wonderful.

Also, the Remmington ad is downright triggering. A white man talking on the phone to another white man is bad enough, but he's ordering a gun! But only because he took a shine to one he bought for a *child.* I am sure a school shooting is right around the corner in that charnel house of a town!

My, how times have changed. A good gun is a great Christmas present. Always has been.

Well well well. My first .22 lr rifle arrived yesterday!

It's a Rossi RS22 - just the same as Mossberg 702 but it has a better stock (sling mounts!).
I was just about to clean it before shooting it tomorrow but discovered that a shotgun cleaning rod is too fat][ to clear a .22 barrel. Imagine that!

Easy enough to get a .22 cleaning rod tomorrow.

I also got a Glock 17 and am eager to test that tomorrow!

35 It may not have the name "gravitas" of the Ruger 10/22, but my little Marlin 795 is just about perfect for me.

It is the same as their Model 60, except it has a detachable magazine and a composition stock (lighter weight). I have run many different brands of ammo through it, and not a single misfire yet. (knock on wood, er, composition plastic)

It is so doggone accurate that after I suck at hitting the target with other rifles and handguns, I pull it out and drive some nails, so I don't go away completely dejected.


A great example of American manufacturing. It's just a little .22, but I love it so.

for shits and giggles, i looked through their used gun offers, and found a "nearly new" Springfield M1A for $950.

yes, $950, and, by nearly new, they mean "essentially un-used", as it doesn't even have a primer ring on the bolt fact.

it will be home before Christmas.

my first gub, besides the Daisy that's still at my parents house was a Marlin Glenfield 22, that i still have. no idea why my parents bought it for me, as i have cheerfully forgotten most of the details of my less than wonderful childhood, but at least i have the gun.

gotta go do some shit outside whilst i still have light.

BIAB.

64 Anyway, yesterday's range visit told me what I was doing wrong with my 'low and right' groups.

Wasn't the gun(s). It was flinching.

Sigh. You'd THINK I'd be done with that shit after.... *mumbly* years shooting. But, nope!

Anyway, some dry fire drills got rid of the stank. Groups started centering.

I do shoot better with a modified Weaver stance, ala Jeff Cooper.

Good shooting day, overall.

Posted by: Hadrian the Seventh at December 09, 2018 07:39 PM (LsBY9)

68 The cartridge is a .22 bullet with a chunk of solid propellant on the back, and is ignited by a jet of compressed hot air.

Get it anywhere near a politician, and all the ammo cooks off! I can see why they had to stop production.

Storing that ammo does sound like an "interesting" thing to do. A little brass tube does provide much better climate control.

It feels like my breath and pulse are throwing it around because it's so light and it's hard to hold steady. I'm not big and don't have huge gorilla arms either.

Oh yeah! That CCI video about the manufacturing process for 22 ammo really brings back the memories for me. I started out as a tool-and-diemaker and learned how to make all the various tooling for stuff like that. Swaging, forming, capping, piercing, all that stuff. Wow.

A lot of those machines are original from the '50's.

The noise. The dirt. The danger and caution that you have to observe...glad to see those industries and the people are still around somewhere.

I need a cigarette now. BRB.

81 My first rifle, a Remington 572 ADL Fieldmaster. Bought it used for $35, circa 1973.

USAF and poverty in the Carter years, I had to sell it, and have regretted it ever since. But, it was sell or starve, so that was that.

My favorite .22 rifle now sits in my safe.

CZ 452 Lux. Bought in '04. It's insanely accurate, and with subsonic ammo out of it's 24 in. barrel, it's nearly as quiet as if it wore a suppressor.

If you find one for sale, buy it. They're that good.

83 69, hogmartin - the pursuit of lightness above all else is so that out of shape people who never hunt and seldom practice can feel good about themselves. In reality, you do need a certain amount of mass to keep things steady and to absorb the recoil. With the steadiness comes the accuracy.

92 I have several wonderful 22 rifles, and handguns, accumulated over the years. But sometimes I take a little single shot with the pull back knob to cock it. Might be an old Stevens from the 20s or 30s and it shows its age. It was a $15.00 pawn shop find. It might well have been a boy's rifle from before I was born. It is still light and quite accurate.

But a couple of boxes of ammo and taking my time will provide an afternoon of fun. It's also probably the best rifle teaching tools ever made

131 First rifle: Remington 512 Sportmaster .22.

Bolt action tubular repeater.

Got stolen out of my apartment. I inherited it from my dad, so, you can imagine why I might miss it.

Anyway, funny thing you should mention 22.

Yesterday was our departmental Christmas party. Wife wasn't feeling well, so, I dropped of some food, Mac N Cheese (page 164 of TDG, though, the recipe has since been updated) and my white elephant gift, which was a box of CCI Minimags, 100 rounds. (I don't shoot .22 much any more, though I've a CZ 512)

Anyway, I know guys have .22's and, I was sort of hoping the gift might also annoy the head of my department, who I don't much care for. Win/win!

Anyway, I'll find out tomorrow if my gift raised any eyebrows as I couldn't stick around for the festivities.

Sadly, my dementia ridden mother gave it away, along with all of my other guns I assumed were safe in the gun cabinet, and my step-dad's guns and sidearms from WWII he'd collected.

142 I'm restoring a Savage 99EG in .300 Savage. Have a new walnut stock blank and fore end. Almost has the ballistics of a .308, just a little softer. A bit of pitting in the barrel, nothing serious. The long range strategic plan is to finish the stock and fore-end this winter.

My problem is that I freeze when it comes to checkering. I have all the checkering tools, but when it comes time to score that nicely finished woodwork, I just wimp out. A mental block. In other words, I don't think that Purdey would offer me a job. So I'm debating whether to leave it un-checkered, or to send it out to a pro.

You'll probably want to replace the trigger with something a little lighter; stock it's about 7-8 lbs (or at least, that's what it feels like). Otherwise, I like mine just fine.

158 Actually I have no .22 rifle at all. Friend who helps run the action
rifle match I shoot is going to lend me his 10-22, or AR in .22, for
the next non-centerfire rifle match (the match alternates between
centerfire, and mixed rimfire/shotgun rimfire/centerfire formats). I
actually would prefer all centerfire - it's the only match where I get
to shoot my M-1s and Mosins and M-1 carbines at steel, with movement and
use of cover, etc.


I have a Single Six (with the 22 mag
second cylinder), and an M and P 22 pistol. Single Six was the first
gun I shot, about 10 years old, with my oldest brother, who's been a gun
guy since waaaay back then.


The M and P 22 is very nice - it's a slightly smaller version of their standard M and P polymer semi handgun platform (might be like a compact, not sure - though it seems close to "full size"). Shoots very nicely. Have tried about 5 flavors of ammo in it, no systematic problems. .22 semi-auto, so there's the occasional stove-pipe or some other loading/ejecting issue, but very reliable. Highly recommend for anyone looking for an M and P practice platform, or a just a nice .22 semi.

163 I have a Desert Eagle in .50AE which will be featured here but first I want to get a video of it being fired. It's impressive.

Amen to that. On the indoor range, after cooking off a round, there would be a slight "snow fall" of ceiling tile fragments caused by the muzzle blast.

Like shooting from a snow globe.

The DE in .44 Mag not so much.

First rung firearm, Colt Python .357, 2nd Colt Delta Elite in 10mm, third was the .44 Mag Desert Eagle.

166 Weasel.

Tell your Vortex guys "thanks!"

My AR wears a Vortex Viper PST, 4x16x50, 2nd focal plane. One step under the Razor, but is very well matched with the AR's maximum capabilities.

I think dollar for dollar and pound for pound, Vortex is putting out the best balance of price AND performance (not "vs" performance) on the market today.

I know the pros in the Sandbox tend towards Nightforce, the higher end Leupolds, Schmidt & Bender and Zeiss.

So, I'm curious. Ask your Vortex friends for an update as to their equipment being used in-theater. ESPECIALLY more in the high-end scope world, but yeah, let's hear how their Red/Green dot stuff is doing, too.

Who knows...could be fodder for a future Gum Thread?

171 159, Cannibal, Hrothgar - that's what I did. I took a Walmart 870 with a matte finish, one that when cleaned up showed the machining marks, had it refinished in Robat NP3, (don't ask how much that cost) then installed a Surefire forend and synthetic furniture. This is my Alaska fishing gun. But I should have just bought a Mossberg 590 stainless instead.

Posted by: RI Red at December 09, 2018 08:19 PM (vcPDA)

174 Cannibal Bob, as Mark said - the 870 already is a home defense platform, basically. What's the barrel length? The 18.5" is generally handier in closed spaces, obviously, but longer barrels are fine too (don't know your situation).


As Mark said, get a light for it (there are various after-market light mounts for that model), maybe a saddle for extra ammo. You're in business.


But two things. Practice. Not just the shooting part, the loading/reloading part. I recommend getting dummy rounds for reloading practice (dummybullet.com has great ones). And ammo. If it's for home defense, buy the appropriate ammo. I'd recommend the reduced recoil buckshot, and reduced recoil slugs, available from various companies (Hornady, Federal prominent among them). Basically it's "law enforcement" ammo of the type used in police shotguns. (ammoseek.com, use appropriate search terms, you'll find lots of sources and best prices)

195 Blake - the action rifle matches are shot on a private club main range, at hanging plates at 100, 175, and 200 yds - with movement, use of cover, a few "weak hand" (left-handed for most) shots, etc. Also, there's a separate, large shelter with big berm inside at 50 yds, they'll put paper silhouette targets up at that range, sometimes we advance and shoot on those (shot placement counts in that case).


Then there's the pit - as it sounds, a sunken area, high berms all around. Paper targets obviously. Movement/use of cover, sometimes shoot from inside a truck cab (quite a sensation shooting an M-38, a Mosin "carbine" - they just lopped some length off 91/30 barrels - from inside a truck cab - I double up with plugs/muffs for that one).


One standing joke at these matches is when I hit a 100-yd plate squarely - the things fly back violentely and swing for 30 seconds. The RO will call out "hit" - and my standard response - "are you sure?" As there can be a fair amount of trouble even determining whether the AR guys' shots are hits (90% of shooters are shooting ARs in .223) due to the light rounds, especially on the 175 and 200 yd plates, it always gets a laugh.

With CCI MiniMags (40 gr) and 40 gr Auila Super Extras out of my Marlin XT-22 bolt gun I have scored between 75% and 92% hits - depending on what the wind is doing that day. At that range 22 is all about wind reads since a 5mph cross wind will blow a Mini-Mag about 42 inches (1.9 mils) or so off line (depending on the air density). Even at that range a .22lr is still potentially lethal.

202 Jim ,
I have many Vortex scopes along with Nightforce, Schmidt un Bender, Ziess, etc, etc.

I concur on bang for buck. My Razor (Gen 1) is a very good scope. I have transitioned from MOA from years of Fullbore shooting to MOA (workplace demands) and have not lost anything in the process. Vortex have made that slightly easier due to the reticles that they offer. My thinking is why pay over the odds for the best glass, best turrets, etc when you get a reticle that covers the target at long range. A hole where the middle of the cross hair normally would be for the win. Fill the hole with target, pull tit, watch target drop.

205 Cannibal, dummy rounds = cartridges (any caliber, centerfire or shotgun) reloaded without propellant or primers. So, they're physically identical to normal rounds, thus will load/eject/handle the same - but they're inert. Perfect for practicing loading/reloading, and checking function, without shooting or having a live round in the chamber.


Now that I reload I make my own, have them for every gun I own.


As Blue Bird noted, they can also be used in various ways for drills and training, at the range, combined with live ammo.

206 22lr, definitely lethal.
It was/is the preferred round for a close range hit man.

207 First one was a Rem Nylon; sold that to a roommate. Many years later, bought a 10/22 semiauto, then spent a few hundred on a Clerke bull-barrel, a 3X9, a jeweled trigger-set and a Hogue overmolded stock.
With a bipod at 50 yards, 5 rounds, one hole. I can't believe it, either, but.... After 25 years, I had to replace the ejector spring.

Anyhow. Just bought a Ruger American bolt-action .22LR for the g-kids to use. Still bare-naked iron sights, 'cause they have better eyeballs.

211 One standing joke at these matches is when I hit a 100-yd plate squarely - the things fly back violentely and swing for 30 seconds. The RO will call out "hit" - and my standard response - "are you sure?" As there can be a fair amount of trouble even determining whether the AR guys' shots are hits (90% of shooters are shooting ARs in .223) due to the light rounds, especially on the 175 and 200 yd plates, it always gets a laugh.

Heh, Yeah, I've nailed a few poppers with the Garand it levels them unlike the 556. Anyway, thanks and I'm jealous, because I'd love to shoot those kinds of matches. Unfortunately, though, not readily available in Commiefornia, near as I can tell.

Oh, I believe it! I suspect the sources for the 'effective range' business are considering the average shooter, and it sounds like you're well past that point. I repeated it here because I felt like I should list *some* max effective number, and 150 sounded reasonable for a plinking distance.
Thanks for the input!

217 Almost bought a surplus Polish .22 trainer rifle for the Mosin-Nagant platform a few years ago. Think they're all sold out from vendors but occasionally pop up on the private market. Thing is, I only consider buying a gun if I have a real use for it/particular interest in it/need for it. In this case, thanks to buying so much surplus 54R when it was dirt cheap, there's actually not that much $$ incentive to get a .22 practice platform. I just shoot the real thing for practice.


And it's all "practice", as I have no plans to be involved in any land wars, or other sorts, any time soon. And Mosins and home defense are not a preferred operational or legal combination.

Could be that we are. My absolute favorite rifle bore is a 6.5... it's just that mine is the Swede in the 6.5x55 chambering.

Not to say I won't go over to the Creedmore.

Ruger Precision Rifle is an object of pure lust-quest.

And that's when I'll step up into the Razor series of Vortex scope, too.

Love my Viper though. It's 2nd focal plane, for the same reason it's MOA. I prefer the finer MOA reticle hashes vs. "dots", and again, I "think" in 2nd focal plane, even "rangefinding" quite effectively at a known magnification.

And don't diss the open, partridge type rifle sights, either. They can with practice, yield some amazingly tight groups, all without obstructing the target itself.

Anyway, there is a really cool rifle match run in Tuscon, AZ. More of a two gun match, rifle-pistol, that I keep telling myself I'm going to try out.

The club I belong to used to run rife matches once of twice a year, but with the changes in the laws and having the local Sheriff's investigating one of our members put a chill on our rifle matches.

Posted by: Blake - tis the season for grinching at December 09, 2018 08:52 PM (WEBkv)

232 Jim,
Dots as in the MIL- dot really are a waste of time and target. Trying to range a target in the 1980's fine, today with laser rangefinder now redundant. MIL scope with fine hash marks and graduations are the way to go especially for long range. One qualification , there absolutely MUST be indicative numbering on the reticle. Otherwise you are trying to count fine hash marks while looking at wind,sort out range and maybe a moving target. I keep losing my place without a reference especially on a busy Hourus style scope. Again no middle cross hair, just a small hole.

241 Really old 22s are so useful and fun. My friend and I taught his little boys the basics of shooting with our muzzleloaders. As a dessert, they got to shoot their great-grandfather's gallery gun with 22 shorts and a little single shot for 22lr, another pawn shop special. I cut back the rear stock to fit them. Those rifles were light enough for kids and made them feel 'grown-up' since they didn't need supports to fire them.

On reading a bit more about it, the hot air to ignite the propellant was produced by compressing it, something that Daisy knew a little bit about.

Seems like the ammo for that would've been even cheaper than regular .22, if it had stayed in production. Too bad it didn't. Maybe time for someone to revive it.

273 ...Jim, any chance of doing another postal match? I'm sure it was a lot of work, but it sure was a fun concept. And a neat thread.

Posted by: Eustace Haverkamp at December 09, 2018 09:07 PM (C1NyB)



There's always a chance, it's just that like you said, it's a TON of work. And I've had my hands full with....work. *sigh*

Several of us have tried like hell to "imagine" various .22 rifle match formats, but it's proven (so far) futile, as a great many people simply don't have access to ranges greater than a mere 25 yards.

Also, those same ranges MOSTLY don't allow "position" shooting. You're stuck shooting from a bench, most often.

Then, there's iron vs. scopes. Another hurdle.

So, if there's going to be another Postal Match, I'm thinking same rules and format as the original.

Is it the best? Likely not.

But it does give access to "the match" to the greatest number of Morons n' 'Ettes, and that's really the MOST important thing about it.

279 Late to the party as usual. Arizona time.

Learnt rifle shootin' on a Marlin 60 in early teens. Moved up to a Savage-Anschutz model 64 in high school and shot indoor 50 yard target matches for a couple of years. Not as nice as the 54 but loved it anyway. Sold it for books and food in the lean college years for stoopid cheap. Regret it to this day, of course.

Now I have a 10/22 with a cheap scope for kicks, a stainless Ruger Mark II Target with 6.875" tapered barrel, and a blued Single-Six Bisley with 7.5" barrel and extra .22 mag cylinder. Mag cylinder is from a different gun but indexes correctly and is a hoot to shoot.

284 I wanted to pass this on. The Winchester 700 Long Range in .300 Win Mag is a notoriously inaccurate rifle. Hard to see why; Fiberglass bedded stock, free floated barrel etc. Sadly out of the box it is about a 2.5 moa rifle. I have figured out why; it has crown problems. The solution is really simple. I bought a Khantrol bolt on muzzle brake and the accuracy problems vanished when I installed it. The Khantrol MB covers up a lot of the crown and the controlled expansion of gasses inside the break cause the bullets to fly true. The rifle is now easily sub moa.

The rifle, scope (SWFA fixed 10 power Mil-quad) mounts, and muzzle brake all came to about $1200. It out shot a $7000 rifle chambered also in .300 Win Mag, with a $3000 scope on it. The guy on the table next to me had that, and we talked going down range to check our targets. He was none too pleased when he saw my 10 shot group was a single elongated hole while his didn't have any rounds even touching.

If she can get somebody to agree with her to do that, I'll be happy to file a felony complaint with the FBI about them. Agreeing with somebody to oppress people's Constitutional rights is a felony violation of 18 U.S. Code 241. By the way the agreement alone is a felony, they don't have to pass any laws or anything.

Club where I RO and this other one where I shoot matches do not police anything other their own rules.

327 I'm the odd one out on Remington Thunderbolt .22 ammo.

My Browning Buckmark seems to like it a great deal, and with no misfires or other faults.

The CZ 452 Lux though, loves CCI Mini-Mags, and will hold right at 1 MOA with iron sights at 100 yards, and just a wee bit larger at 125 yards.

150 yards though, and the group becomes a "pattern", alas.

I'm going to have to try some real MATCH ammo in the CZ sometime, just to see what it'll really DO.

328 Not a lot of people voiced opinions on 22 ammo. Maybe next week in the comments?

My crappy shooting can't justify "good" (say Eley Club or better) ammo so I've standardized on Federal 711B and Federal 719 and stock up when I find either on sale. I was using 719 in the 10/22 with a Green Mountain barrel but recently tried the 711B. The grouping at 25 yards (indoor range) was much better but had like 50% FTEs. I think I'll switch to a reduced power recoil spring and then won't need the 719 for much of anything. Well, come to think of it, the CMMG AR conversion probably needs high-vel.

MAKE it your thing, then, ma'am.

Here's what I mean.

You design a jewelry piece, similar to an enameled lapel pin.

Make it so it works as a lapel pin, pendant, bracelet charm or other all-around jewelry piece.

You're the designer, but here's what it needs to convey.

The Ace of Spades Gun Thread.

Inclusive of all Morons & 'Ettes, all types, actions and calibers.

For those interested in Charlie Manson and the Family, on NatGeo tonight is Inside the Manson Cult: The Lost Tapes. Some video journalist interviewed a large number of the family members at the time of the murder spree. I don't know why these weren't shown before. This will be a well, duhhh comment but in addition to the crazy/evil it shows, I was very surprised at how young they all looked.

Posted by: hogmartin at December 09, 2018 10:16 PM (t+qrx)

375 Jewels, how's this?

Ace symbol, but overlaid with a target and group from the Postal Match a couple years back. Pick one that's very clear and sharp, that would "image" well.

At the base of the ACE's "stem", meld with a casting of the letters "ONT".

And much as a military Marksman's medal has "rockers" that hang on wee small chain links under the primary medal...

...per Bob the Bilderberg's quip, have one "rocker" be an canoe displayed upside down.

Participants in the original Postal Match can have a rocker that'd say "AoS / PM '15" or whatever year it was. And just put the correct years for any subsequent year-rockers.

Not that its gotta end up this way...just trying to seed the field with ideas for you, ma'am!

Cowboy shooting has caused ammo such as this to make a resurgence. A few weeks ago, my sons and myself were able to do what my father was never able to do....go out and shoot it. It was a great rifle to shoot....extremely accurate and smooth. With open sights at 50 yards, we were able to shoot consistently tight patterns. It was a very special day.

383 "Can you reload 22LR ammunition"

Another bit of info most people don't seem to be aware of: with a set of dies, a spool of soft lead wire, and a bunch of spent .22LR cases, you can make your own jacketed .223 projectiles.
The dies aren't exactly cheap - about $350 or more, IIRC, but knowing that it's possible is somewhat relevant from a comprehensive DIY standpoint.
Similarly - but in a bit more of a hacky fashion - it's possible to re-prime spent metallic primers and re-use them with a fair bit of success, if you're desperate enough.

Food Thread: Set Aside Your Childish Ways And Come To The Savory Side (It's In The Bible!)

stuffingwaffle.jpg

Why...yes! That is a stuffing waffle. And a damned good one too. As I may have related to you a few weeks ago, I made a lot of stuffing. Maybe three times what we needed, so I froze a lot and made this waffle with a bit.

Nothing much to it, although I thought it through a little and mixed the stuffing with egg, flour and some baking powder. It took more than 10 minutes to cook, but it ended up quite nice and moist, with a crisp exterior and some loft from the baking powder. The stuffing was savory and rich (yup...sausage!) and the waffle was an excellent accompaniment to some roast chicken. It didn't rise as much as a plain waffle, so be warned, you'll have to load up the waffle iron with lots and lots of the stuffing mixture.

I know that some of you deeply deluded and, frankly, wrong-headed people like bread and eggs with sugar, but it is time to leave your childish tastes behind and become adults. So put down the syrup and pick up the salt and butter and pepper and all of those marvelous grown-up flavors that separate the men from the boys.

Seriously, this worked out really well and was easy to make, so give it a shot. You'll thank me. Well, no, you won't, but still, try it anyway.

******

stickytoffee.jpg

This dessert is why God created the British Empire. It really is perfect...a magnificent combination of wonderful toasty toffee sauce and dense, buttery vaguely fruity cakey goodness; all topped with some decadent ice cream and if done well some saltiness to put it over the top.

Gordon Ramsey does it best. And for fvck's sake, I can't find his recipe anywhere. Now, I don't have any of his cookbooks, so that might be part of the problem, but I demand immediate satisfaction from the internet!

He has a restaurant near Canary Wharf in London that makes one that is sublime. But it is a feature at many of his restaurants, and my guess is that he has been perfecting it for awhile.

I've never had a good version in the United States, and that is why I am frantic to find a good recipe. Oh, there are many of them out there, but I really want Ramsey's version.

******

I had one of these a long, long time ago. As I recall it made good coffee, but it took a bit longer than my trusty Melitta cone, and cleaning it was tedious, so I consigned it to the purgatory of the back of the upper cabinet over the oven, where it languished for years until I moved and it disappeared into the vortex of the moving company's interesting attitude toward delivering the correct boxes to each customer!

The Humble Brilliance of Italy's Moka Coffee Pot

The moka pot is a symbol of Italy: of postwar ingenuity and global culinary dominance. It is in the Museum of Modern Art, the Cooper-Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, and other temples to design. It is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s most popular coffee maker, and was for decades commonplace to the point of ubiquity not only in Italy but in Cuba, Argentina, Australia, and the United States. It’s also widely misunderstood and maligned, with approval in the modern coffee world coming perhaps a bit too late, in only the past few years. Get one while you can.

Sort of cool website! As usual, I didn't find it.

Food Safety Confessional: Sheila says she is horrible

From long-time lurker "Harry," comes a rather nice idea for dessert following a rich meal of...oh...roast beef!
Gentlemen,
I greatly appreciate a well treated, some might say respectfully treated, piece of beef. That meals will greatly benefit from a proper dessert. I suggest a lemon pie whose sweet and tart notes follow the richness of the beef. Recipe follows. (reference the “ Cordon Blue” cook book which I saved from the dumpster)

Pie crust for a 9” pie plate. Buy it premade or make your own; it is not alot of trouble.
Blind bake crust. (bake it) 350 degrees for 15 min or so.

Filling: 6 eggs. 1 cup sugar, one cup lemon juice, lemon zest if you wish 2t

Put all ingredients in a sauce pan and whisk over low heat for 15 min or until it thickens.

When it starts to thicken it happens quickly. Like making a roux for gumbo don’t stop stirring or whisking in this case.

When it has thickened take the lemon custard off the heat and stir in one stick of butter cut into medium pieces.

Pour mixture into pie shell and chill. Enjoy

We only get citrus once a year on the gulf coast so we have to use it in season.

******

So...I am not going to make this dessert, but it certainly looks and sounds good. It's just that it requires a bit too much work for what will turn out to be something that is...good. Not great. Just...good!
chocolate caramel tart
That is not to say that one of you shouldn't make it and drop it off at Chez Dildo for a tasting.

Pie crust to me is just a delivery mechanism for pumpkin, or apple, or blueberry pie. Otherwise the 'good stuff' would stick and burn.

Eat over-processed white flour? No thanks.

There is no syrup but maple. Everything else should be made into jam.

Real maple syrup, not the artificial flavored weak imitation that is fortified with high fructose corn syrup.

52 Made homemade waffles for the boyfriend and he was quite taken with them.

The secret is to separate the eggs. Put the yolks into the batter as normal, and then whip up the egg whites and fold them gently into the batter just before cooking them. It makes for a very light, fluffy waffle, which I really like.

I've also waffled mac n cheese before. I ought to do it again, but it was a lot of work.

62 TickledPink, I agree that separating eggs is the secret to good waffles. I use my mother's recipe that requires separating the eggs and beating both the yolks and whites until they are stiff before combining. We always make them for house guests and they invariably a big hit.

See? A true scholar of the waffle.

The best waffle I ever had was in Scotland and it was a belgian liege waffle which is made with a dough and not a batter. I have yet to try to make it, although I hope to give it a try someday.

But, the whipped egg white method is about the closest I've ever had to the belgian liege waffle in its airiness and fluffy texture.

Yup. It was actually my sister who discovered the technique first, and yeah, it makes light years difference.

Also, invest in a good-quality waffle maker. It doesn't have to be super expensive. One of the mid-range ones on Amazon should be sufficient. But, for years, I used a $10 cheapie, and when I upgraded to a better quality waffle iron, I was shocked at how much more evenly it cooked and just better overall outcome.

And if you spray the waffle iron and waffle it right.....the mac and cheese waffle comes out easy peasy.

I watch a lot of old Brit movies and t.v. shows on the YouTube. They will regularly call a dessert a "pudding".
As in, "What will be your pudding, then?". This is sometimes shortened to "pud", which has an alternate meaning, at least here at the AOSHQ.

cold butter is optimal, but the problem i'm seeing is that US butter has more water content than what chefs use. Also water content of eggs varies with age of said eggs.

The roast I made was perfectly cooked from outer layer to the center. One quibble. I like spicy food but not on my beef roast. I will use this recipe again but will skip the cayenne in the wet rub. Way too spicy and would prefer savory. Couldn't use the gravy I made since the cayenne polluted it.

The whole family, mom, dad, and three kids, were in the kitchen making the most wonderful looking cookies. The husband is from Austria and the wife is from the Czech Republic and these are their families' recipes.

Only nothing is written down. They do it over Skype on the iPad. I told her she should make sure to write them all down so her kids can have them and I can steal them. I may not have said all those words out loud.

145 Last week Weasel mentioned franks and beans, made with original style Bush's baked beans. Although the dish was a staple in our neighborhood, I hadn't had any for over fifty years. I got a small can of ther beans and was pleased to see no tomato in any form listed, my preference. Just heated them up, added a teaspoon of molasses for extra flavor, and threw in sliced up, sauteed hot dogs. It was DELISH!

I'll try it again the next time I make homemade baked beans.

BTW, the carbs are pretty high with all the different sugars Bush's uses. But a reasonable serving had my numbers come down from the high to good levels without crashing. It should be even better with the homemade version.

183 Yummm, stuffing. I do like my savory stuffing with celery and onions and sage, salt, pepper etc. Putting syrup instead of gravy on that would be SO wrong. I was looking up recipes to remind myself rough proportions for celery and onion vs bread and was seeing zero egg in the first few recipes. I suppose that might be safer for cooking in the bird but I brine and bag the bird and cook my stuffing in a bread pan and was sure I've always used a couple eggs. Getting to treat recipes as mere guidelines is the nice thing about cooking vs actual baking.

197 I enjoy oatmeal for breakfast during cold weather but I don't like to make stovetop oatmeal while I'm waiting on my bacon and eggs. Instant oatmeal is unsatisfactory because it doesn't have the creamy texture of slow cooked oatmeal. Being lazy and finicky I have found a simple solution. I mix Quaker Instant oatmeal (two packets) in a microwave safe bowl with the recommended amount of boiling water and stir, then add an additional three tablespoons of boiling water to the bowl, enough to cover the oatmeal and place it in the microwave for 30-40 seconds and you have a bowl of oatmeal to rival the best slow cooked oatmeal and no extra pot to wash.

That's silly. You take a seed, poke it with a bunch of toothpicks, then place it in a glass of water so the bottom of the seed is just barely immersed.
In a week it will sprout and you can plant it and get lots of bacon bushes.

239 For tradional Christmas meals, ours was basically a copy of Thanksgiving. We would get back from midnight mass, consume mass quantities and go to sleep. Eager as we kids were to open presents, that meal made sure we slept past daybreak. That gave the adults a chance for coffee (and pie for my dad) before the young ones woke. My aunt and uncle did the same.

These days Christmas or New Years, whichever we are home for, is a wonderful beef roast and yorkshire pudding.

- Polish sampler plate
- "city chicken" is veal and pork onna stick
- potato pancakes are excellent and are NOT hash browns.
- the 'cabbage rolls' are golabki
- The chicken noodle soup is very good, as are the cucumbers and sour cream.
- farmer cheese or strawberry crepes for dessert

255 My family always had roast beef for Christmas dinner, but since getting married I've been a little more eclectic. We did a goose one year, which was good -- but lordy, geese are expensive! Did turkey one year when we visited relatives for Thanksgiving, because otherwise when will I get a carcass to make stock out of?

This year, for the first time in ages, we're traveling at Christmas again. Instead of visiting parents we're visiting kids. I have no idea what Eldest Kid is planning, and the odds are good that Eldest Kid has no idea right now either.

I have yet to drink any Sixpoint Beer that wasn't excellent.

Currently, we have at Chez naturalfake:

Binary IIPA - loaded with two very fruity tasting hops. Definitely hoppy but not particularly bitter.
Yummy!

Barrel-Aged 4 Bean Porter - porter brewed with coffee beans and aged in bourbon barrels. Delightful desert beer. All you Coffee Fags, and you know who you are, must must try this.


If you ever see "The Crisp", don't think twice. Buy it. It's the most delightful pilsner in existence.

322 OK, it's not your cake, CBD, but this Pumpkin Bread Pudding with sauce is very good. It doesn't look at all like the photo. Looks more like cake. You could serve it with ice cream.

https://tinyurl.com/yb2zywn4
I leave out the raisins and skip the powdered sugar (it's best warm). I also substitute a can of evaporated milk and 1/2 cup whole milk for the two cups of half and half, but use heavy cream for the sauce.

If you don't use egg bread you can just tear the bread into chunks. I have used a leftover bag of Kings Hawaiian Rolls (12 oz) for a single recipe and either a 22 oz bag of Mexican Telera rolls or a 24 oz loaf of Country White bread for a double recipe. The rolls gave more volume, but it didn't matter much. You can add an extra egg for a firmer pudding. You can make a double batch in a 9 x 13 inch pan with extra tall sides, but I prefer a 10 x 15 inch baking pan.

I substitute granulated sugar for the last two tablespoons of brown sugar so I can mix the dry spices with it. I hate lumps of spices.

As a variation on the delicious dark brown sugar sauce, try vanilla caramel: 3/4 cups brown sugar and 1/2 cup white. Add a generous 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla. A little salt can be added to either version of the sauce. Some people dump the sauce over the pudding before serving, but I don't know how they get it to all soak in. It must be reheated if there is leftover sauce. It crystallizes as it cools.

Elizabeth Scalia says that everyone you serve this to will be your friend.

This year, with just a few folks coming over for Shabbos dinner, I grabbed a bag of shredded potatoes ("hash browns") and used those, draining and then adding in a slurry of cornstarch (which was what I had at hand).

Every one *raved* - they may have been my best batch yet, and SO much less effort.

My sister and I would go to bed on Christmas Eve and our parents would put up the tree, decorate it, decorate the inside and outside of the house, put out the presents and off course the empty plate where Santa's cookies were sitting.

344 1st world complaint....

Half and half pizzas are NEVER half and half. Never.

They are inevitably like 55/45, and my side is usually the 45. I hate to order two pizzas, but it seems to be the only way.

Also, something that always amuses me is when they cut it, they never cut it half and half either. They just cut it all willy nilly which means the two end pieces are half and half anyway, and you either have to cut them in half yourself or just have a person eat those pieces. Why don't they just carefully cut it so that it is truly half and half?

Rant over.

Always though, some varied nuts, a tangerine or two, and always some of the gold foil-wrapped chocolate 'coins'.

Even the dog and cat each have a stocking.

I like that idea a lot. My grandmother always made that for Jan 6th (Epiphany, Three Kings Day) and I did too when the kids were little.
Now they are unlikely to be around on Jan 6th and it's too much for 2 people. It doesn't keep well.

I was home from college when we realized at about 5 o'clock on Christmas Eve nobody bought a tree. And do you know what you can't buy at 5 on Christmas Eve? A Christmas tree.

So I headed out into the woods and cut down a beautiful pine and dragged it home only to find out it was a tad tall. Like 20 feet tall. Alcohol may have impaired my judgement.

It was a tradition in my husband's family to buy a too-tall tree every year, and alcohol was never involved - my FIL just liked fat trees.

So they would have to chop a considerable amount off the top and then they would have their traditional Christmas trapezoid.

O/T: Speaking of teh Grinch, we were listening to a station out of Lakeland yesterday that played a good mix of music. Was I ever surprised when they played You're a Mean One, Mister Grinch in its entirety. Had the radio up pretty loud and noticed the singer's most excellent basso profundo. What a helluva voice he had.


Come to find out the singer was a fellow named Thurl Ravenscroft, better known as the voice of Kellog's Tony The Tiger. He did a lot of work and never got credit for about half of it.

Christmas memories - - reminds me of the year that my mom wrapped gifts
in the bedroom while we kids waited in the hall. When she finished
wrapping a gift, she would set it outside the door and we would go put
it under the tree for her.

Being the oldest I'd get the job of guarding that room and allowing my helpers to pick presents to deliver to everyone. They usually started before they could read so I'd have to whisper in their ear who to give it to. They're all in their 30's now and I got to do it with their kids before I gave it up. The kids are what Christmas is all about for me.

Well when we were little my folks would hide the tree at a neighbors but as we got older things got a little lax. We'd go out early and just not put the tree up.

But when my sister and I were off at school and didn't get home until right before Christmas, yea well mistakes were made.

>>JackStraw, where ever did you put the Angel?

I made some modifications to the top of the tree, lopped off a bunch of branches and the angel just sort of nestled in.

448 Most of the families in my family are spending Christmas at Disney World with the fake snow. So I very well might be alone this year. It was to expensive for me to go, being retired and all. Some different than in the older days when we all got together as one big family. I guess its the new way to celebrate Christmas. They are staying in the park in a rented apartment.

Posted by: grammie winger, church pirate at December 09, 2018 06:41 PM (lwiT4)



It's its own thing, but

it's a bit like a lighter Green Chartreuse with a higher mint profile.

The mint is what is really picked up and pops with the tequila.

It takes the margarita and turns it into a herbal rather than a citrus drink.

It really is good.

If you're like me the "Beware: Attack Guard Dog on Premises" signs, do tend to make people in the neighborhood talk.

545 Lately I've had the idea of trying bourbon. I probably got the idea from someone here.

Since I don't know what I'm supposed to like, I started off with the bottom shelf brands and will work my way up.

I started out with Old Granddad and Old Crow. I don't find either of them objectionable, and in fact I can't tell any difference between them.

These brands, along with others like Seagram's 7 and Ten High, I remember from old Life magazine ads when I was a kid.

But here's my question: Today they're on the bottom shelf in the liquor store. Was it always that way, or did that happen recently due to the pricey boutique bourbons that have come on the market?

Were those brands considered middle or top shelf in the 1960s, and if so, did there use to be lower quality rotgut booze that is no longer being manufactured?

546 I made stuffing waffles once and they were okay (with gravy as the syrup, naturally) but the breaded, deep-fried stuffing balls were a bigger hit.

547 I started out with Old Granddad and Old Crow. I don't find either of them objectionable, and in fact I can't tell any difference between them.

Oh no. They're both good.

Many of the lower shelf bourbons have gone the way of Falstaff.

George Dickel is good as well. I like Jim Beam and they don't even carry the 7 y.o. around here anymore.

And you're right. Paid $100 for the boss's Christmas bourbon.

Posted by: golfman at December 09, 2018 08:24 PM (GL/05)

548 545 ...
rickl, Brands go in and out of favor all the time. Seagrams 7 and Four Roses were well-known brand in the 60s and 70s but were superseded by other brands. (BTW, Seagrams is a whisky but not a bourbon.) Over the last 10 or 15 years, bourbon has made a popular comeback and often made to consume neat instead of mostly in mixed drinks.

I'll add there is some snobbery involved. Younger people often assume an expensive bottle will be better than a less expensive one. That ain't always the case. They forget that preferences are personal.

A suggestion: try Wild Turkey 101. It is not overly expensive but, in my opinion, is a good value and a flavorful bourbon. I think it's a good starting point for someone new to bourbon.

549 One of my mom's tastiest dishes when I was growing up was chicken and waffles, but she did not make it the way restaurants do now. The waffle was just a regular waffle, but she made a delicious and savory topping by stewing the chicken with vegetables. I can almost taste it now.
By the way, Mom is 92 and still going strong!

Should We Take Occasional-Cortex Seriously?
This Guy Says, "Yes."

The woman is a national treasure; everything she says is a wonder of stupidity and ignorance and vacuousness and best of all, cluelessness. She really does think so highly of herself that she doesn't bother to stop a bit and learn something about the topics she discusses. We are all luckier for her existence, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Besides, her presence in the next Congress is meaningless; her voting record will be exactly what her predeccesser's was.

But is she a threat? Is her rank stupidity simply not enough to prevent her insane ideas from going more mainstream? This guy thinks so.

Why The Right Should Start Taking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Seriously

Yes, the tweet was incorrect. Yes, it would be nice if the people in our government had some actual knowledge about the things they talk about. Still, it is critical for folks on the right to avoid the mistakes made by the left. We must learn from how they treated (and treat) President Trump and endeavor not to make the same mistakes.

Do not underestimate this woman, and do not think your savage mockery of her stupidity will be an effective tool to stop her. It won’t. It will instead be personalized by her supporters, creating an army that will lay down and die for her (or at least vote for her), just like the army Trump has. You should be afraid of Ocasio-Cortez. Be much more afraid than you are.

I think his comparison to Trump is interesting but ultimately incorrect. There is a core of truth and undeniable utility in most of Trump's pronouncements as a candidate. Many of them were twisted beyond recognition by the media or simply truncated without the ability to appreciate his context.

Ocasio-Cortez is different. She really is stupid, and she is probably a bit nuts too. But that might not be enough...

7 I don't think we can dismiss anyone but this one is stupid. Trump has a proven track record for not being stupid. He's a very successful man. That is why I think what he says doesn't matter to me, it what he does. On the other hand this one is seriously confused and has had very little life experience. There is not track record for me to excuse things.

20 Honestly, she reminds me a ton of Obama when he first came on the scene. This new, fresh sensation with virtually no experience but the "sex appeal" of being a minority.

She's pretty enough to get the very shallowest of the shallow voters (like Obama....decent looking, except for the big ears, but voters thought he was soooooooo good looking. She has her nerd glasses that I think she uses as some sort of tactical device, but those same voters will talk about how beautiful she is, just bc she is passable and exotic to them)

I won't be shocked if she gives some sort of rousing coming out speech at the DNC (similar to Obama) and then in 2024, when she qualifies, is the heir presumptive.

Agreed. Trump wasn't talking about spending our money, that bint is. Trump speaks common sense, she has no idea what she's even talking about.
I have gnurr smarter than her.
She needs to be called out each and every time she blurts out something stupid, which looks like a full-time job plus a lot of overtime. In a sane world, she'd never be allowed anywhere near the levers of power and deserves to be mocked and laughed at, then voted out of office in two years.
