Saturday Morning Weird News Dump

funny-coffee-quotes-300x210.jpg


Good Morning Morons.

Wow, it's Saturday again. Time to see what has happened in our world that didn't get too much attention here at the AoSHQ this past week.

Put the scissors down. Leave the inkwells alone. Don't even think about grabbing that straw. Here we go with some weird news or something else that tickles your fancy in this open thread.


Play nice with one another and have a great weekend!

25 I used to buy the instant 3-in-one coffee with ginseng in it from the Asian market. Ginseng tends to make everything it is added to taste sort of like dirt, but it does give a boost.

I had to stop drinking it because it made me want to fight people at work.

At least its not the apple store where you can't just walk in, you need to make an appointment. I stopped bothering going to the Verizon store after they annoyed me, and now handle it all on their website. You can probably find out if it comes in blue there too.

21 SO tired of chicken moderators of equivalence. They are incapable of judging one party as the bad actor. So they cower until they can majestically rise and declare "BOTH sides need to behave or else".

Just ditched Beta Hater Althouse over it, and now Legal Insurrection is infected too. Goes like this:

Troll: poke
Fen: ......
Troll: poke
Fen: ....!
Troll: poke
Fen: SMACK!
Mod: both of you stop
Fen: fuck off coward
Mod: bans Fen

They are like the stupid teacher that ignores bullying all semester until the day the victim finally punches back. Everyone gets sent to the principal because a scuffle broke out. Teacher doesn't care you have a black eye every week, so long as you don't fight back and create "drama".

33 I've found it best to avoid the nightwalkers altogether. I do not understand what goes on there at all.

These people bitch and fight and scream and call each other names all night long, and then one of 'em called for me to be banned one night just because they didn't like a limerick I posted. There were no banned words or personal attacks or anything of the sort in said limerick. The person just didn't like it. And called for me to be banned. For a limerick. While they all bitch and fight and scream and call each other names all night.

I don't get it. So I just hang with the daywalkers.

I saw that. That's disappointing.

Powered Dragon landings are optional for Earth, but they're necessary for Mars.

But on the other hand, the original plan for recovery of Falcon 9 first stages was to parachute them into the ocean. They tried that two or three times, and didn't come close to succeeding.

So Plan B was powered landings, which have been spectacularly successful.

SpaceX is nothing if not innovative and resourceful. It will be interesting to see what they come up with.

71 Latest update on the repairs to stately VIA Manor.


Found a source for about 500 square foot of salvaged flooring that matches our perfectly.

And unlike most cases where you find salvaged hardwood flooring, this has never been resanded, or resurfaced in its life. So it is of a uniform and original thickness of 3/4 inch, with no dips or wear valleys in it.

So, instead of simply replacing the stained section of the Dining Room floor, I think I am gonna replace the entire room worth in one single shot.


Damn, this is some good looking flooring.
Best I have ever seen in the salvaged wood section..

106 "Not sure I was real wood tho. The bedrooms all have real wood floors."

Yes, the entire house, except for the kitchen and bathroom is red oak tongue and groove 2 1/4x 3/4 flooring. Interestingly, the deck, or floor of the bay window was originally floored in the same material, as the builder simply used the cut off sections from flooring the house to cover the bay window deck. As all the homes were built between the late thirties, and the fifties, most of the bay window decks in the community have been damaged by overfilled window plants, sixty years of exposure to harsh sunlight, and other things which have ruined the wood. And in most cases, the deck is torn out and replaced with various other coverings which happen to be in vogue during the time that the owner decided to take corrective action.

I think that stately VIA Manor is probably the only one which has a completely rebuilt deck using original red oak. Out of everything which I have done around here, that is my pride and joy.

After my children's father left me to run off and join the circus. I bought a little house built in 1945. It was my 972 sq ft pride & joy.

Then Mr. H swept me off my feet and we now live in his house. It was built in 1992 as a custom retirement dream home for an elderly couple who have since gone on to their reward.

We have the original Southern Living House plan, and it would have been a lovely, functional space if it had been followed.

              People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.  Forgive them anyway.
            If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.  Be kind anyway.
            If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.  Succeed anyway.
           If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.  Be honest and sincere anyway.
            What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.  Create anyway.
            If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.  Be happy anyway.
            The good you do today, will often be forgotten.  Do good anyway.
         Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.  Give your best anyway.
         In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway.

138 "We have the original Southern Living House plan, and it would have been a lovely, functional space if it had been followed.

Custom Home means many inefficient design choices, like a big jacuzzi tub in the master bath with two picture windows and no shower. "

There are a lot of energy efficiency advances that took place in the last thirty years or so, that make a newer home more attractive.

But some of the new construction technics leave me a little bit unimpressed.

And the older homes, if taken care of, can hold their own on comfort.

Baltimore just went through two days of hot and humid weather, with temps in the high nineties, and heat indexes in the mid 100's.

So in order to capture a reduction in the electric bill, I turned the a/c off at 11:00am both days.

Last night, at 7:30pm, I turned the a/c back on when the house reached 76 degrees inside..

I don't think I am gonna find new construction that has the same solid feel as the old homes do.

Here's how I handle the situation...

I put every job on a separate 3 X 5 card like
Wash car
Cut grass
Fix something
on and on until I have a pile of cards.

Then I make two piles, stuff I definitely don't feel like doing and stuff maybe I feel like doing. Then I search through those cards until I find 'something' I feel like doing.

Just having a list of to-do items on a sheet of paper doesn't cut it. They all look equally full of suck.

The old couple were from Michigan originally, and the old man really believed in insulation.

We lost power for a four hours last week when a tree fell on the power line up the road, and even though there was no a/c on, it was still plenty cool inside for several hours.

We also have a huge coat closet. More than necessary for the ATL.

Another oft missed thing is the lack of a basement, or usable attic in many of the southern coastal homes.

There is a certain love of my life who tends to overlook the storage and use capacity of a 600 SF finished basement, and a 600 SF attic, which is completely floored, with pull down stairs for access.

You look at a new 2000 SF home, and in actuality, it has less usable space than our current home.

Or as I often ask her, when looking at new homes...

Where is the work bench, power tools and guns safes gonna go?

And the storage for all your stuff up in the attic?

Move it to a smaller container, and it fills it.

206 Colin, I just upgraded from exactly that, flip phone at $30 a month to fancy smarty phone that doesn't come in blue.

It's too late for me, but there is still hope for you.

Despair, but do not take my path.

It's not a phone. It's a computer with a phone app. As a former Marine who appreciates the value of clear comms, it sucks. Example:

My friend is messed up, car dead on side of road, about to freeze to death. I'm racing in my car towards his last known pos, trying to get him to identify key landmarks before his cellphone dies. Driving and texting him but every time I try some other stupid button on phone takes me to another screen. Like trying to juggle geese without wrecking into a telephone pole.

The kicker? I finally get back to him, and right between me dodging a semi and middle of text trying to get what last street he saw, a pop up as - "would you like to update to the newest version of chrome?"

Also, the phone tattles on you.

And that pic of the redhead you thought you deleted? Guess again.

So be happy. Soon as my data is used I'm smashing this phone with a hammer and going back to the no frills flip phone.

Comms is your most effective weapon. They MUST be reliable. I don't care if it can 3D hologram that Black Widow hottie, if it can't be depended on for clear comms it's trash.

Did you ever see that video of a monkey f**king a frog to death? That's every internet argument. Bystanders can't look away. Everyone loses.

I was at dinner with my wife years ago listening to a guy at a nearby table go on and on about his $60 disagreement with Comcast - exactly what everyone wants to hear over dinner - and I had an idea for an advice column: Am I The Asshole?

Maybe that guy was in the right. Maybe he was in the wrong. Pretty sure nobody who could hear him cared at all. That's also every internet argument ever. Get some sleep. Have a great day. Cheers.

242 Back in 2012, I reluctantly decided to join the 21st century and bought my first cell phone. It's a cheapo no-frills TracFone I got at WalMart for $12. It costs me about $44 every time I buy time, which I do 2-3 times a year.

I can talk on it, and text, and it has a calendar and an alarm clock and a calculator. A year later, I bought one for my Mom -- got one step up from the cheapest thing available, and it has a camera and some other features. She hardly ever uses it, but when she needs a cell phone, it's in her purse.

FWIW, I recommend TracFone to anyone looking to downgrade but still wants basic, reliable service.

Overnight Open Thread (21 Jul 2017)

FTC probing allegations of Amazon's deceptive discounting. Too many folks focus on percentage supposedly saved and not on the reference price trend of the item before the "sale".

An analysis found that in 61 percent of products with reference prices, Amazon's reference prices were higher than it had sold the same product in the previous 90 days, Consumer Watchdog said in a letter to the FTC dated July 6.

Also, their QA process has some issues. I ordered something electronic advertised as new and I received a previously opened item as the outside sticker had been sliced already, the device inside the box was upside down, the usb cable was a mess, and there was a missing screw on the bottom. A friend of mine the next day had the same issue of a "new" item having been previously opened.

Fossils

Man, I never found anything cool like this when I was growing up and hiking in the mountains. Boys find a 1 million-year-old Stegomastodon while on a family hike in the desert. What's the coolest or strangest thing you found while out on a hike in the wilderness?

Fighting

Yeah we should. Why we should allow boys to fight. I do practice self defense moves with both my kids and we also do quite a bit of the lightsaber dueling. The banging of light sticks at night is quite a bit of fun. Seriously though, you never know when you will find yourself in a dangerous situation and you will need to fight. Better to be ready and you can only be ready if you have practiced and or have experience.

One more day of 100°F before we get a break, maybe, some rain (a/k/a pre-humidity) and a cold front bringing temps down to the mere 90s.

Could be worse. This is merely July/August in Oklahoma. It's why we invented swimming pools.

Speaking of which, did you hear about the time Idi and I were at screen printing camp, learning how to do t-shirts for the 'Nuke the Gay Whales' activist group we were supporting?

There we we were, inking up, when in walks Maxipad Waters with a REALLY weird expression on her face. I mean, weird for her, so you can imagine...

Anywho, she is mumbling about getting screen printed panties for her boy toys and house slaves, drooling, and trying to get a vegetable peeler up her left nostril.

Idi, wanting to help, tries to take the vegetable peeler away from her and she goes ape shit! Hilarity ensues with shit, shirts and stuff flying. Next thing you know, Maxipad is in the trash covered in rainbow ink colors with an inking squeegee stuck in her crack and Idi has just gotten a job offer from one of the servants to be the new chimney sweep, limo tire inflator and vegetable peeler...

Idi was sorely tempted, but declined after he realized that her tertiary neuro-syphilis might not be contagious...

67 "It's like he had a handbrake he could use in flight on some of those moves."

The Flanker was displaying amazing low speed agility all the way back to when the Gorbachev thaw first had Soviet versions showing up at Western air shows. It's a tremendous basic design.

But, really, such adept nose pointing and ability to fly out of the stall, while important in a late-eighties, early-nineties context, aren't that key nowadays.

The selling points for the jet in 2017 are: it's cheap and numerous. It's fast. It flies high. It's stone reliable. It carries a metric shit-ton of ordnance. Carries it a long long way on internal fuel. It's not tethered to some whizbang ground computer console without which it can't even take off. It has a big nose to into which one may wedge a large aperture radar.

It's the overall champ for now and probably for the next decade.

A buffalo skull around which had grown a lodgepole pine. I was able to get the right horn. Up in the Snowy Range of Wyoming.

Also, when I was a kid, went camping in the southern Absarokas with my buddy and his dad, and we found a cairn with an arrow shaped rock on top pointing somewhere to the west. It was old, and weird.

97 Appropos of nothing, on the first whining thread Skookumchuk posted a link to an article at gCaptain quoting a US Navy source that the crew of the USS Fitzgerald (collision casualty with the container ship) would be found to be at fault/responsible. Well, duh. A f***ing Burke-class destroyer in good weather and normal conditions colliding with a huge slow container ship? Yeah, there's really not even a theoretical excuse for that.

Anyway, that gCaptain site is interesting. Had an article and photos of the Costa Concordia salvage, and lots of other cool maritime stuff.

Oh, and the Baltic Dry Index (some consider it a very important bellwether on the global economy) is hitting new highs.

And finally, the little island where the Costa Concordia came to grief (Capt. Schettino, 16 years in prison), Giglio, was a place I've actually been. Spent a weekend there back in the 90s.

149 Self-defense: When our boys were about 10, they wanted to take karate. First thing their instructor taught them was, forget everything you learned from the ninja turtles. They did actually learn how to break someone. If necessary.

157 7 White (Milk) Supremacy

The association of milk with colonialism, oppression, and White supremacy has been a long running trope among the insane and woke (apologies for the redundancy) Left, to the point of their denial of evolution.

Posted by: The Political Hat at July 21, 2017 10:26 PM (vBeA5)


When I was a kid, I would only drink chocolate milk. I couldn't stand the plain stuff.

There may actually be something to the milk = white supremacy thing. Apparently, several thousand years ago, a genetic mutation occurred in a population that enabled them to digest milk. They quickly spread throughout Europe. They may have invented cheese, which gave them a form of storable and transportable protein that other populations lacked.

To this day, if I saw one of them being beaten and stabbed to death, I'd react the same way they did to my torment: by doing absolutely nothing.

Here's hoping they're being bullied every day by the asshole nursing staff at their nursing homes as we speak. "Oh, you couldn't stuff your fucking food down your fucking geezer gullet after we fucking slid it under your locked door because it was fucking filthy and ruined ?!? Fuck you!!!"

---------

I wouldn't call it strange, but as a 12 year-old I was wandering deep in the swamp/woods (with my trusty Remington, of course) and found an old sawdust pile. I diligently looked for any sign of an old road or path in or out, but there was no evidence of that at all. I suppose that it must have been created some 75-80 years before.

I have occasionally come across roses growing in deep clearings where there must have once been a house, and yet, no evidence of a house at all.

I also have pottery shards that I found as a kid which had washed out of the bank of a local of tidal river.

Of course, I never had an iPhone, so none of that stuff matters very much.

221 qdpsteve,

I'm of mixed feelings about how to deal with bullying.

Those doing the bullying need to be stopped, but I've seen both:
1) Those being bullied punished for simply defending themselves, and
2) The edict against bullying extended to speech. Where do you cross the line from trash-talking to bullying?

I got more verbal bullying when I was a kid, and yes, I hated it, but I survived. Physically assaulting someone, however, should never be tolerated.

Having the jobs I've had enabled me to be around to help my parents through their illnesses, and I'm happy I was able to do that.

However, they're both gone, and now I'm just so freaking tired of fighting for a job. And when I do get something, it turns out to be a dead end job that leads nowhere.

232 When I was a kid, I would only drink chocolate milk. I couldn't stand the plain stuff.



There may actually be something to the milk = white supremacy thing.
Apparently, several thousand years ago, a genetic mutation occurred in
a population that enabled them to digest milk. They quickly spread
throughout Europe. They may have invented cheese, which gave them a
form of storable and transportable protein that other populations
lacked.
Posted by: rickl at July 21, 2017 11:01 PM (sdi6R)

Apparently here were probably three populations that had genetic mutations to allow digestion of milk, one on the steppes with the populations that were the source of the Proto Indo-european populations for horse and cow milk, Arabian peninsula (probably) for camels, and Africa.

There is some indications that in the Sahara region, in the early warming period when it was still steppe, there were populations that made milk into butter, which might be edible in spite of lactose intolerance, but the ability to rely on cattle, horses and sheep is considered to be the reason the steppes people could get away from the rivers and live a more pastoral life - and create a culture that could tear across Europe and Asia.

And since I am drinking heavily, have I mentioned my personal theory that the original wheeled vehicle was the chariot, and that the wheel was developed as a logical conclusion of the drop spindle used for spinning yarn and the travois?

My so-called friends were anything but. We were more akin to a wolfpack, but with less loyalty.
I got to witness the parents of these kids teach them that bad things that happened to someone who was a minority was soley because they were a minority. Sure it was BS, but we are talking about the brainwashed here.
Ever see someone having given up on life at the age of 12?
I have. They were convinced this racist country would never let them be anything/anyone. A few of my "friends" went on to be gangsters, junkies, and criminals in general. A few are dead or in jail.

He was actually very polite to me. It was something that happened reall quickly- he walked out of a dressing room into a large hallway right in front of me. Basically, I'm standing with a piece of equipment and BAM! Brian May is 3 feet from me.

He seemed really nice and approachable He made a point to wear a "Detroit" logo T-shirt for the finale, and is actually a way better guitarist than I ever expected. Most of the band (not Adam Lambert) stayed really late at the venue--the show ended at 10:45, and I'd say they were there until about 12:30.

I usually avoid talking to talent, but it seemed rude not to, since my co-worker (remember my crazy gay former friend? It was him) just gushed at him. So I felt obligated to say something, but it was sincere, since I did think he did a great show. He's kind of like Ritchie Blackmore meets David Gilmour, which I did not expect.

So sad that he's on the global warming bandwagon.

Cool. My dad was an ace at finding arrowheads. He grew up on a farm in NE Colorado, out on the plains. Along the dry creek beds he would walk while scanning sections of newly broken off bank. A shape or glint of rock would catch his eye and he'd reach down and pull up either a shard or an intact arrowhead. Amazing.

There are supposed to be two or three creations of the wheel in Eurasia, depending on the design. The Aztecs also had a wheel but they didn't use it except for toys.
I wonder though, since there is supposed to be some link between the Zunis and the Japanese languages, and the fact that the Mixtecos have a tonal language, almost completely unlike any other American Indian tribal group, I wonder if the the Aztec's wheels were not imported ideas from Asia.

Posted by: Tinfoilbaby at July 21, 2017 10:56 PM (gVoyC)

My 5th grade teacher's son stabbed me in the leg with a pencil. Still have the mark. I told her, she did nothing.

She hated me. She made me write I will not talk in class 500 times. I used a ruler for the Letters i, l, and t. She then made me write it on the blackboard every recess for a week.

My mom had a meeting with her and she admitted she didn't like me.

She's a member at the same gold club as me and I asked her if she remembers her son stabbing me in the leg with a pencil unprovoked and not punishing him. She denied it

I'm a bitch to her and she looks terrible.

299 where dogs are from...

2 points:

the famous russian fox experiments where dogs kits were chosen for submissiveness, bred, and physiological changes occurred, including multi-colored coats, floppy ears and curly tails, would indicate that domestication by selection created a range of unforeseen effects.

recent genetic findings indicate that there is a similarity between a mutation that causes a human syndrome producing overly gregarious and trusting traits in people and a canine sequence found in dogs, i.e. a sociability gene, that makes dogs want tom please people.

what does this mean? well it's the big idea i've been working on - and am revealing here for the first time!

you know how smart people like musk and haw kings are warning us about the dangers of artificial intelligence? well, what if we made a program similar to the genetic mutation found in dogs so that robots and androids would become big golden retrievers? fantastic! problem solved!

302 But wheels have requirements. Remember, even the Romans mostly transported goods by ass, oxen and humans, even with the good roads.

You need a place to run them -unlike really rugged central Mexico and the Andes - a critter to pull them, and gear to let them pull them successfully.

The Romans did use oxen but oxen are slow. Mules and asses are better than horses, but they do best carrying on their backs. They had poor tackle for the horses, so they couldn't carry much more for their feed than an equivalent number of porters (so we are told)

On top of which the porters could drag stuff directly into the warehouses, which the horses and cattle couldn't,

Anyhow, the steppes are great places for a light chariot. Central Mexico not so much

skip forward five years, last day of class, senior year start of day, I bump into him in the hall and he says, "I still owe you for that sucker punch."

skip ahead five more years to our five year class reunion. Stopped by at the end to check in and who do I run into? Same guy, going opposite directions on the escalator, he says again "I still owe you for that sucker punch."

Guy never forgets anything but never gets around to doing anything. He may have been wearing the same iron maiden base ball jersey at every instance.

Remember too that the original Eurasian horse was weak and small and would not carry a full grown man. They were strong, but the only way to get them to carry much was that they had to pull.
It was only about the archaic Greeks that they had horses heavy enough to ride.

The American Indians, with the plains and the horse - shoot, the Vaqueros, the llaneros - didn't have any use for the chariot, they had big riding horses too, much more flexible and reliable.
And the Plains indians used travois.

Queen is a really interesting show insofar that its nicely balanced.

There's some cool technology, some cool video and some cool gags, however it's not overdone. There are a lot of moments where the band is just up there playing. And they are really good musicians, so I see that as a good thing.

There are also a few really spectacular bits in the show. So I'd recommend it, if it's in your budget.

Also, FWIW, the band is really involved in creating the show, and they are playing live. The creative team is really top notch: the overall design is done by the guy that just did U2, and the lighting is from Peter Gabriel's guy.

364 The American Indians, with the plains and the horse - shoot, the Vaqueros, the llaneros - didn't have any use for the chariot, they had big riding horses too, much more flexible and reliable.
And the Plains indians used travois.

it arose from a pastoral tribe in the in the 12th cent., urbanized in cuzco in the 13th-14th cents. and expanded across the andes only for about 100 years.

Posted by: Deplorable Jay Guevara at July 21, 2017 11:54 PM (SRKgf)

The plains Indians did not really move into the plains until they had the horse, and, in fact, appear from some indication in religious ritual to have been farming people who adapted the horse and migratory hunting lifestyle.

The vaqueros in Venezuela and in Argentina, Paraguay and southern Brazil may have been migratory hunter-gatherers, but with the horse they took to ranching.

392 Dunkirk was a huge meh, which is a shame. I was really looking forward to it. Nolan hasn't steered wrong yet.

It just doesn't seem...big enough. The movie beach is pristine and white, no debris or footprints to speak of. I'm wondering if Nolan's decision to shoot the film AT Dunkirk was a mistake. He should've picked a beach he could really fuck up without dealing with preserving it as an historical landmark.

The film's skies are mostly clear of planes, the dogfights are sterile.

And the actual evacuation took a full week and 330k+ soldiers got out...you just don't see the scope in the film. You don't feel the Germans a couple of miles away. It was like a low budget art house film. 5 Mehs out of 5. 2 Mehs Up. Whatever.

400 I know you said that you hate that job, but what's so bad about it? You have great stories! That must be worth something, right?
--

I've done it for way too long, and was not able to progress at all in the job. The same thing I was hired for decades ago is the same thing I'm doing now.

The job is really physically demanding, and if you're not careful, the hours can destroy you. For example, this was yesterday for some people:

work at 8am.
stay all day, work show.
after show, take show down and put back in trucks
day ends at 2am.

back to work at 7am, for Vans Warped Tour.
they'll be outside in the heat all day
and then they'll take it down

BTW... time and half ONLY after 40. No double time. Pay is meh.

You meet tons of men, however, most travel and have the job they do because they do not want commitments or emotional entanglements. Think "frustrated ex-musicians."

Interesting stories? HELL yes. That is the ONE benefit of the job.

Welcome to my life. I need to re-invent myself, and right now, I've got a low level depression thing going on, so it's not been a fun past few months.

Also...I realized a short time ago that many employers are really vested in keeping good workers in their job and NOT letting them advance. By keeping people in their dead end jobs, the employer knows they have someone they can trust, and someone who makes them look good.

Work hard= get ahead. Not in my experience.

Work hard= stuck in dead end job until you quit.

Also...I realized a short time ago that many employers are really vested in keeping good workers in their job and NOT letting them advance. By keeping people in their dead end jobs, the employer knows they have someone they can trust, and someone who makes them look good.

Work hard= get ahead. Not in my experience.

Work hard= stuck in dead end job until you quit.

Had never seen snakes in the wild before. When I told my parents how awesome it was they came to see the snakes and bones. They were a bit stunned by the snakes. I think they heard my tale of adventure and were doing a trust but verify operation.

477 Nice to come home and find all four of our little fuzzy feline friends are fine and ready to be fed. Kitteh continuity.

Looking over comments, several threads on which I might tug. Bullying. HS Reunions (again). Dog carts.

Reunions it is.

I feel kinda sorta maybe just a little bitty bit old reading about some o' you young'ns. Fellow 29yo's.

In three years will be my HS 50th. Small K-12 prep school I only attended for three years, but some of my classmates had been in there for life and were tight with one another. I was late-comer outsiderish.

Since graduation, I've had pretty much nothing to do with any of my class except the reunions. Wasn't particularly friends with any of them (maybe one, who never shows up at reunions).

So the attraction is mainly to see who's still alive and (for the living) to be able to look each other in our aged faces and say, well, look at that; we're still here.

Also, the fatcat folks who host the reunions put up a pretty good bar.

489 Back in my bookselling days, I had a customer with a taste for super expensive coffee table books. Since my wholesaler's search engine sucked swamp water with lots of ugly green toads, I used Amazon to find ISBNs. That's when I noticed Amazon was charging higher prices for these expensive books than the publisher's suggested retail price. Books published by universities, religious houses and certain other publishers usually don't have the price on the book cover, allowing the bookseller to name his own price. The books Amazon was overcharging their customers for were books without preprinted prices on them.

497 There was no Genius Award this evening, but fear not, I can provide!

I was attending a car club meet today in Calgary. As planned, a whole bunch of us drove several miles to an A&W drivein to attend their weekly Cruise Night. The place is near the Calgary Auto Mall. I was sitting a lawn chair under some shade trees, and we heard some tires squealing. Some dipshit in a late-model red Mustang was trying to be impressive. Anyway, the rear end of his car broke loose, and he did a 180, and was sliding backwards down the road. His car mounted the curb sideways and backwards, probably bending a rim in the process, and he tore up a bunch of grass, before his rear fender smacked the concrete base of a lamp standard. And if the lamp standard hadn't been there, the next target was a row of new Nissan Altimas at Brasso Nissan. Driver got the car moving forward again, slunk off, but came back later on foot, looking for lost parts, I guess. Pretty funny to watch.

511 Say what you will about Richard Dawkins, but today he absolutely PWNED the Stalinist radio station KPFA in Berkeley (yep, Berkeley again) who today canceled his talk at their fundraiser because the lefties in their demographic audience flipped out when they learned he criticized Islam in addition to Christianity:

http://www.berkeleyside.com/2017/07/21/ kpfa-cancels-richard-dawkins-speech-tweets-islam/

Yeah, blue-on-blue action is sweet, but in this internecine battle, it's nice to see the anti-Islam combatant ripping the Islam apologists a new one. A few quotes:

“The idea that I have engaged in abusive speech against Islam is preposterous, which even the most rudimentary fact-checking by KPFA would have made clear,” Dawkins is cited as saying in the press release. “I have indeed strongly condemned the misogyny, homophobia, and violence of Islamism, of which Muslims — particularly Muslim women — are the prime victims. I make no apologies for denouncing those oppressive cruelties, and I will continue to do so.”

...

“KPFA, like so many, is guilty of confusing free speech with ‘abusive speech,’ banning a talk, and thus depriving people of the chance to hear Richard – and probably ask him questions or even criticize him,” Coyne wrote. “Here’s the station’s inevitable ‘but’: ‘While KPFA emphatically supports serious free speech, we do not support abusive speech.’ Give me a break! Criticism of ideas is not criticism of people, nor is it ‘abuse.’ Shame on KPFA for not realizing this, and for their craven behavior in canceling the talk.”

“You’re a homophobic misogynist.”
“But I’m a Muslim.”
“Oh, SORRY, I didn’t mean to insult your culture.”https://t.co/8fQYmYGwLb

520 Eastwood directed both movies (parts of both were shot at the same time, on Iwo, for obvious reasons). I don't blame Clint so much. He's shown his directing talent in plenty of other movies.

Could be me. Just seemed the Flags story line was dumbed down/hollywoodized terribly, for no apparent reason. Letters had several problems.

And I used "disappointing" for a reason, as I had high hopes for Flags, based on the actual history, which was powerfully related in the book (interestingly, I've always thought the author, son of the last flag-raiser to die, got SJW'd or whatever by his peers for Flags, which would account for the bizarre, ridiculous first 70 pages of his next book, in which he beclowns himself trying to create historical moral equivalence for the Japanese atrocities he's about to document ..... very odd).

548 The Romans did use oxen but oxen are slow. Mules and asses are better than horses, but they do best carrying on their backs. They had poor tackle for the horses, so they couldn't carry much more for their feed than an equivalent number of porters (so we are told)

On top of which the porters could drag stuff directly into the warehouses, which the horses and cattle couldn't,

Anyhow, the steppes are great places for a light chariot. Central Mexico not so much

Posted by: L, Elle at July 22, 2017 01:29 AM (Rsi2C)

My personal experience with Chi has been nothing but positive. We have exchanged e-mails, and talked on the phone at length, and he snagged two sets of never-used quality bathroom faucets at a thrift shop, and sent them to me, and I paid him for them. Pennies on the dollar to what they cost new. So he did me a solid.

He seems to have gotten himself banninated, for what I do not know, and it seems to have happened when I was out of the loop for a few days.

I do know "Bill Wynn" was trolling here long before there was any kerfuffle regarding Chi. That does not mean Chi cannot be socking him, but to me, it seems out of character for him.

Llamas and alpacas are considered beasts of burden, I think. They carry loads, like camels, to which they are related. But they are too small to carry grown adults as riders. And I don't think they are used much, if at all, to pull carts, or to plow.

673 I never said it was someone banned. I said I didn't know who it was. I said "Its an unfunny dumbass on a mobile network that thinks being a subpar troll is hilarious." Guess what when there was some new name anti-trump idiot showing up here and people were speculating that it was chemjeff, I would state with quite a bit of authority and confidence that it wasn't him, even though I had no idea who the new person was. Because, get this, just because you know that some sock isn't a particular commenter, does not automatically mean you know who they are.

Posted by: buzzion at July 22, 2017 02:45 AM (cAnNx)

Exactly. To me, based on what I know of Chi, socking Bill Wynn, or trolling Elle seems entirely out of character. I don't know for a fact that it's not Chi, because he's not here in the room with me, but it sure doesn't sound like his style to me.

And just because I personally doubt that it's Chi, it does not follow that I have a better candidate in mind. I don't.

And this is not a slam against L,Elle, or against CBD. I'm just saying these accusations against Chi do not jibe with my personal experience with the man, which has been 100% positive, although never face-to-face.

Posted by: L, Elle at July 22, 2017 04:10 AM (Rsi2C)



That's a lie. No one picked a fight with you. We told you you were wrong and then you wouldn't let it go. And you are the one continuing to drag it out. Anytime people stop talking about you you keep bringing up more crap. Anytime people aren't talking you declare some bizarre victory as if you won something.


You know why Chi showed up and probably crossed a line in attacking you? Because you won't shut up and keep talking about him. No one here has mentioned Cthluhu but you.

And quite frankly if someone had said your colors were black and blue you'd probably be crying that they threatened violence on you.

Knock. It. Off.

Posted by: L, Elle at July 22, 2017 05:36 AM (Rsi2C)

Not fair at all Elle. Sometimes things happen that we don't understand.

I'll address Chi's comment first since other people have chimed in on it. Since I am one that banned Bill Wynn first way back on election night I know his patterns and I know what service provider the real Mr. Wynn used.

Posted by: Tim in Illinois at July 22, 2017 05:41 AM (sf2BM)

844 I also know what service provider that Chi uses. The other night, Mr Wynn and Chi posted from the exact same cell tower just minutes apart.

The difference in IP range was infinitesimal. In fact the IP range that Mr Wynn has been using for awhile never deviates much from any IP that Chi uses.

845 Not fair at all Elle. Sometimes things happen that we don't understand.

Maybe you should try to understand then. It's not fair to be called a bitch like I was twice tonight and had that comment defended more than once. Also told "Fuck You." That comment was cheerleaded twice also.

What part of personal attacks aren't allowed don't you understand? One of them even attacked who he thought was my boyfriend.

Ace said personal attacks aren't allowed. Those are his rules. You don't seem able to defend them.

Posted by: L, Elle at July 22, 2017 05:46 AM (Rsi2C)

847 I don't mind being hated by people I don't hate. Why? Because those peoples hates, ideas, beliefs, and even their lives don't mean a damn thing to me. Does that mean I don't pay attention tho those people and what they do? Oh no. I keep up with that because one day they will try to act on their hate in my proximity. In the meantime since I do care about their souls, it is my prayer that these people come to a knowledge of Jesus Christ and quit their evil ways. Notwithstanding, these things are all in accordance with the will of GOD.

850 The obligatory - I've been a lurker/commenter/reader of this blog for a longtime. A thousand years in internet years. This nic is a sock I use at work that came about because of some long lost thread one day. I use another one at home that many/some of you would recognize. I've even been attacked by a commenter who is on this thread right now.

Having said all that, I woke up early and read the ont. The things that were said back and forth between 4 or 5 regulars was uncalled for and wrong. I'm not sure where the right place for that is but it sure as hell ain't here.

I was embarrassed for you all while reading it. Either this sock or my regular nic could/should be banned any day now, nevertheless all of that was damned disappointing.

852 Don't care either. I don't hate her or any of her friends.
Because, see, I dont actually know any of them.

I will never call them the kind of names or cheerlead them being called those kind of names by someone else like they did me tonight.

Because I don't hate them.

General assessment of functioning. It's a number used in psychological assessment. I believe the lowest is zero and the highest is 100.

Posted by: qdpsteve at July 21, 2017 08:24 PM (eMKNe)


Basically doesn't get used anymore. It was a dumb way to try to quantify overall.. well, functioning on physical, mental, social, etc. Usually somebody would put a number on the person, and one clinicians guess was as good as the next.

Client would be seen one day, all disheveled and drunk and complaining of chest pain and no job and nobody to love them, and they'd give him a 20. Next week after he cleans up, and his wife picks him up because he has a job interview, they give him a 65.

Right.

Mark Steyn was on for Rush a few months ago, and made a very sarcastic but cogent argument why Republicans should go for Single Payer. It would shut up the Democrats for years, and it would generally be so lousy and mediocre, that it would make everybody mad at the government.
I wish I could remember every point he made, but he was both half serious and half joking.

After that, just one more step: right click and save the file. Now it's on your pc and you can play it like any other video.

Sure, it would be simpler if twitter video worked in your browser, but since it doesn't, you can do this if you want to see what everyone else is talking about.

I thought it was obvious. People who don't care if everyone in blue city dies because they don't live there an don't anyone there and they all deserve to die anyway.

I think I understand why people leave here-not because they're banned or they aren't good folks or because Ace doesn't write well. he does or because things aren't funny-but because it just gets to be too much. And yes, I understand "Don't let the door hit you on the as** on the way out." I don't have those kinds of "snap to" doors ;^) and I'm not leaving yet. Just taking a break.

I know it looks that way at first, but it's dead easy. If you have the savevideo.me site bookmarked, you just go to the twitter video like normal, click in the address bar to copy the address, click the savevideo bookmark, paste the address you copied in the box, click download.

After that, just one more step: right click and save the file. Now it's on your pc and you can play it like any other video.

Sure, it would be simpler if twitter video worked in your browser, but since it doesn't, you can do this if you want to see what everyone else is talking about.

There are a bunch of Salamis in Columbus. There's a Starboinks next door to the Fedex I ship stuff out of all the time from work, and there is a little table out front, and there's usually some Salamis hanging out there.

And next to Fedex on the other side is a T Mobile store. And there are always Salamis getting their phones there.

The press Down Under are full of screaming headlines about AMERICAN MURDER COPS and THEY KILLED HER, note the plural.

Never mind that Noor's partner had essentially nothing to do with this chick getting capped, and is reported to have been extremely shocked by the shooting.

Plural guilt by association. Ain't it great?

And of course the reason for this, even though Noor is obviously the sole officer at fault, is to take the focus off of him as a Somali Muslim immigrant. A generic narrative about American policing is much preferred to a specific narrative about that one cop.

306 I used to visit all the very gay places
Those come-what-may places
Where one relaxes on the axis of the wheel of life
To get the feel of life
From jazz and cocktails

The girls I knew had sad and sullen gray faces
With distingue traces
That used to be there
You could see where they'd been washed away
By too many through the day
Twelve o'clock tales

Then you came along with your siren song
To tempt me to madness
I thought for awhile that your poignant smile
Was tinged with the sadness
Of a great love for me
Ah yes, I was wrong
Again, I was wrong

Life is lonely again
And only last year
Everything seemed so sure
Now life is awful again
A trough full of hearts could only be a bore

A week in Paris could ease the bite of it
All I care is to smile in spite of it

I'll forget you, I will
While yet you are still
Burning inside my brain
Romance is mush
Stifling those who strive
So I'll live a lush life in some small dive
And there I'll be, while I rot with the rest
Of those whose lives are lonely too

My daughters school had two, one in her class. They were bullies, because they knew they were protected class.

Well, one started in on my daughter, who was taught to defend herself, and did very succesfully. She was suspended for a week for this.

I did not call the school, I immediately went to the Principals office and demanded a meeting. Told her that if she blemished my daughters record with a suspension for merely defending herself against a known bully with multiple incidents in her file, the next time she would see me was in Court with my Attorney right after I alerted the local media to the bullying her school allowed.

358 What did God tell His chosen people to do with all the foreigners?

Posted by: gNewt


i) today's "refugees" aren't in the same position as the "stranger (foreigner), the widow and the orphan" from the OT. They are infinitely better off.

ii) in OT times, the foreigners were *really* refugees. Ie. the roads were dangerous, and they really were just passing through. They didn't seek to become an FSA. As a social contract, many ancient ME nations had the practice of taking in travelers that were passing through.

iii) there are different contexts in which the subject of foreigners is treated in the OT. Travelers, as above, but also in Ezra/Nehemiah, foreign spouses were considered to be a corrupting, degrading influence as far as Israel's national religion went.

408 Scogg, about that eloquence of You Know Who.

Have been listening to his speeches, plan to try to read them.

He rolls his "r"s like a muthascratcha - must be some kind of Austrian thing (not familiar with Austrian accents in German).

Need to find out if he wrote his own speeches - bet that he did (maybe Goebbels helped). He seems best when he's preaching to the choir (the party, at party events). Most readily accessible recordings are of party events (Nuremberg rallies, speeches at the Sportpalast).

His national, public addresses were different.

But his party stuff was very good. As in good red meat, for your own team - but I've heard tons of that in the American context, and Herr Schickelgruber's schtick was above most of that. Didn't hurt that he had such a sad, failed, civic culture to use as a foil for his sarcasm and inspirational stuff.

And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey-cock,
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens,
And the rooster's hallylooyer as he tiptoes on the fence;
O, it's then the time a feller is a-feelin' at his best,
With the risin' sun to greet him from a night of peaceful rest,
As he leaves the house, bareheaded, and goes out to feed the stock,
When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock..

Idi and I like the idea of a "MUMR/Idi 2020" shirt...

Speaking of which, did you hear about the time Idi and I were at screen printing camp, learning how to do t-shirts for the 'Nuke the Gay Whales' activist group we were supporting?

There we we were, inking up, when in walks Maxipad Waters with a REALLY weird expression on her face. I mean, weird for her, so you can imagine...

Anywho, she is mumbling about getting screen printed panties for her boy toys and house slaves, drooling, and trying to get a vegetable peeler up her left nostril.

Idi, wanting to help, tries to take the vegetable peeler away from her and she goes ape shit! Hilarity ensues with shit, shirts and stuff flying. Next thing you know, Maxipad is in the trash covered in rainbow ink colors with an inking squeegee stuck in her crack and Idi has just gotten a job offer from one of the servants to be the new chimney sweep, limo tire inflator and vegetable peeler...

Idi was sorely tempted, but declined after he realized that her tertiary neuro-syphilis might not be contagious...

Moaning and Complaining Thread

I forgot how much I liked complaining about minor things that are barely worth mentioning, let alone having an emotional reaction to.

I know the last post is about this, but it's kind of specific to WhiteWalkers, so how about a thread about anything -- the more minor the better -- that annoys you?

Oh, as I need some content (I guess) here's an article about the sin of Mansplaining.

One thing I say nowadays is "Don't explain it to me -- mansplain it to me."

[Update] (OregonMuse):

GorillaPundit has a complaint:

talking ape.jpg
"Want to know what chaps my hairy ass? Fine, I'll tell you: I hate those stupid dorm room philosophers who prattle on and on about how knowledge is impossible, existence is impossible and in fact, they're not even sure they exist themselves. Yes, some of those boneheads actually say that. They read some French guy and they think they're all deep and sh*. Morons. Anyway, you can easily show everybody how full of sh* they are by just telling them 'Dude, your zipper's down'. If they really think they can't know anything, why do they always look?"

20 Here's a thing I hate that happens. Sometimes it happens to me, sometimes I see it happen to other people.

So like you're telling some story. It doesn't grab anyone. Most people stop making eye contact with you and start looking at other people, hoping someone will say something more interesting.

But you're kind of now committed to this story. You don't want to finish it, but you'd feel pretty stupid if you just trailed off and stopped speaking mid-sentence.

So you kind of just mumble out a few random bits from the end and say something (which no one is listening to) in summary like "So anyway it was a real situation," to pretend as if you'd finished and it had all gone well.

Sometimes I see this happen to other people and I do try to look into their eyes and pretend I've been listening. Just because I know, it kind of sucks.

You can't get out of the car to explain it to them because this tends to happen at night and nothing good can come from getting out of your car to approach a stranger's car at midnight.

53 My roommate is great but, he doesn't' shower every day. He works 3-4 nights devlivering Italian food and has to clean up in the kitchen. Hair absorbs smells and he stinks when he comes home.

Luckily he usually goes up to his room because its usually after midnight and I only see him for a few minutes. I slept on second floor & he's on third.
I've tried for three years to explain the difference between work clothes, home clothes and going out clothes. I wear only garden clothes out in the garden and put then directly in the washer as soon as I come in the house. I would never go out seen in public in them. I think I am in the minority in this regard because i see people looking worse in public places that what I would wear in my garden.
I'm little and I can't stand when really fat people expose all the layers of fat. My mother was very heavy most of her life and would only wear clothes that hid how heavy she was.
Now they wear clothes so tight it kills my fragile appetite.

94 20 Here's a thing I hate that happens. Sometimes it happens to me, sometimes I see it happen to other people.

So like you're telling some story. It doesn't grab anyone. Most people stop making eye contact with you and start looking at other people, hoping someone will say something more interesting.

But you're kind of now committed to this story. You don't want to finish it, but you'd feel pretty stupid if you just trailed off and stopped speaking mid-sentence.

So you kind of just mumble out a few random bits from the end and say something (which no one is listening to) in summary like "So anyway it was a real situation," to pretend as if you'd finished and it had all gone well.

Sometimes I see this happen to other people and I do try to look into their eyes and pretend I've been listening. Just because I know, it kind of sucks.

184 I hate that every building during the summer in the south is chilled to about 60 degrees. People are walking around the office wearing sweaters and windbreakers! Then you go into a meeting room and it's 50-60 degrees supposedly in case some upper muckety muck director guy in a suit and tie is there to give a presentation and wants any possible flop sweat flash frozen off his body. Screw your suit and tie! You could store meat in these rooms! People are running space heaters under their desks in July in Savannah!

At the end of the day I walk out to my car, climb in and just sit there for a while, absorbing the heat to get my core temperature back.

But there is one piece of road here inside the Boston beltway where I honk at least twice a week. There's a totally effed up intersection where a two lane split/carriageway style road is just beginning, and two other roads are joining it. EVERY road at that intersection but one has a stop sign, and the one that doesn't is coming down a short, steep hill.

Some stupid liberal woman is always, ALWAYS stopping on that hill. There's no light, no stop sign, and no yield sign, but they see traffic piled up, waiting, at the two stop signs on either side and assume they're in the wrong, because that's what liberalism does to you.

And I look like the asshole for honking at them.

Hey, girls, how about ONE of you does your little set, while the OTHER rests, freeing up the other station?

279 I hate blackjack people on the cheap tables (which is where I can play).

Motherfuckers, I KNOW the strategy. It's fucking listed on the back of playing cards and takes ten minutes to master.

But it's rote and mechanical. If I have a 13 and dealer shows a 5 I KNOW I'm supposed to stand, motherfuckers. But if I'm not occasionally Using the Force, then what the hell is the point of robotically playing the exact algorithm? Might as well play the slot machines.

So here's the problem: If you draw a card, and you get a 10, you bust, which is fine, but then these low-rent motherfuckers go "He took my 10" as if you've ruined everything for these gambling addict robots.

Motherfucker, what if the card I'd "taken" from you had been a useless SIX?

They pretend that the cards are all ordained. It's random chance until the card is drawn, assholes.

AND HOW THE HELL YOU DON'T KNOW I'M NOT COUNTING AND AM ADJUSTING STRATEGY ON MARGINAL HANDS ACCORDING TO THE COUNT?!

Which I have done before, btw. (Not to any success -- you need a team to do that right.)

SHUT THE FUCK UP AND LET ME TAKE AN OCCASIONAL AGAINST-THE-ALGORITHM MOVE, ASSHOLES>

ANyway, I can't play blackjack because of these assholes.

They really think they're Mr. Vegas for knowing a series of 20 rules that can be memorized and mastered (and played like a robot, thoughtlessly) and just make it no damn fun.

Go back to your desk, think through your question, write it succinctly with references to the line of code, and give me space so I can get to all that when I'm at a good stopping point.

376 The QuickQuestion was the bane of my office life for a long time. They were hardly ever quick in themselves, and they are ALWAYS a context-switching distraction, which meant derailing my train of thought and forcing me to look up another codebase.

The real motive behind a QuickQuestion, or its cousin "could you do me a favour real quick", is to get me to stop what I'm doing and to do your job instead.

I made it a rule, personally, never to ask a QuickQuestion and also, to tell off anyone who came to me for a QuickQuestion.

It's... a question. And sometimes it's a long question. Don't start the question off with a probable lie.

You just brought up a memory that made me cringe. I was dating this nice Catholic woman and her birthday was coming up. She already had everything I could think of to buy her. I was in Starbucks and I bought her a couple of CDs. She seemed to accept them happily, but then a couple of weeks later she confronts me by noting the two CDs are on sale at Starbucks and she doesn't know how to interpret what seems like a thoughtless gift.

I didn't come out of that conversation well because she was right. It was a thoughtless gift, although I did eliminate a lot of other more thoughtful gifts because, again, she already had those.

Related: They're always eating directly out of the white food carton. Apparently nobody on TV shares the Chinese food or has access to paper plates.


Unrelated: Whenever anyone on TV or in a movie is holding a piece of luggage, it's always clear that the luggage is empty by the way it sways and moves around. For some reason this bugs me. It's so glaring that they're actors with a prop, not a person with a full suitcase.

I have a drawer full of *empty* bluray, DVD and CD boxes I've bought over the years, just for this purpose. It's frustrating how many come from the store, or Amazon, shattered up... or re blu-rays and DVDs, the clear plastic is literally wrinkled horribly.

Also, sometimes the packaging is too overboard. I recently got a copy of Connie and Carla that was so plastered with SECURITY DEVICE ENABLED stickers that is was impossible to open. I finally just tore it apart, then put the disc and outer info sleeve (it's that sheet of paper with the film cover/info) into a fresh clear DVD box.

Replies:

"You go girl!"
"Awright! Love ya!"
"ALL THE WAY around the block? Damn! You're fit!"
"KISSES!!! YOU"RE THE BEST!"
"Glad to hear you had a great day!"
"I wish I could be more like you!"
...
[three hours and 400 comments later]
...
"My goddess! Go go go!"
"HUGZZ! xxxxx"
"I'm so glad I know ya!"

Meanwhile, someone else with fewer "friends" posts this:

"My book came out today. Spent three years researching it. Going to be on NPR tonight."

641 shibumi and insomniac, yup.

I believe in God. I believe in Jesus. But some people just have to make it into a competition. In 1991 (before all the harassment rules went into place), I had to deal with some women at my first full-time job (GTE) who were just ridiculously holier-than-thou. It was like working with 3 Dana Carvey Church Ladies.

One time they were giggling at me for no discernible reason. I finally said to them, "what do you know that I don't?

They yelled back: "Jesus!"
Oy vey. I never spoke to them again.

I've shared this before, but I also had to unfriend a woman I knew who was constantly convinced that Jesus was coming back next week, every single time Obama so much as coughed. But of course if you confronted her-- "really? JESUS HIMSELF said in the Bible He doesn't know when His Dad is coming back. But YOU do?!?" she became slippier than one of the Clintons in front of a prosecutor. "Oh that's not what I said!" Lady, that's EXACTLY what you said. You're just an immature person using your faith as a weapon against other people.

And then there's those at FB who *insist* that you share EVERYTHING they post about proving just how much you luv God, Jesus and America, or "keep scrolling if you don't love them!" I've had to mute and/or block a few of those too.

Yeah, it is. I'm a little hinky about a cloud-based service, but it works great, generates and keeps passwords locally (I think), and keeps them encrypted in the cloud.

I might be wrong about this, but I think that that's right. Makes it easy to generate and use strong passwords.

And someone should add that cows have better manners than the French. They also smell better.

722 I swear I'm not a grammar pedant and probably screw up on it up all the time myself, but it bugs me when college educated people use "I" or "myself" where "me" is correct. I think it annoys me because they're trying to be what they think is extra correct by avoiding "me" so it backfires on them.

723 Reason : Ball is not in live play behind the batter's box.

Yeah it is, the catcher catches a popup back there, its an out.

Real reason: it can be hard to tell when it was tipped and people do it a lot, so it lowers batting averages.

Yes; They've had them for years. Their last one lasted 15 years which I gather is old for the breed. My sister weighs 110 ponds because she eats one meal a day and is fanatic about taking the dogs for walks. They seem very good tempered dogs when i have been with them.

728 Sports fans who get mad when their team had a season that would be considered record setting and talked about for decades in any other program but is a failure when the comically error prone offense is led by a high school quarterback and single-game offensive coordinator and still only loses the national championship by four points in the last ten seconds of season.

729 Traffic. I hate all traffic. Especially when you are driving down a highway and suddenly someone pulls RIGHT OUT IN FRONT OF YOU and you slam on the brakes and look behind you to see if you are about to get rear ended but there is NOBODY BEHIND YOU FOR A MILE.
I want to kill those people. Happens to me almost every day.
The other thing is in the city when a light changes to green but NOBODY MOVES because they are all on their fucking phones so you miss the fucking light again.
And finally I really really hate it when you are discussing something with someone and they go off somewhere that makes no sense and you realize they have no idea what they are talking about but you have been telling yourself that you need to listen to them because you are certainly not as smart as you think you are except this idiot has been steering you wrong forever. And of course he/she has fucked up your life now but it is really your own fault for not trusting your own judgement in the first place. Then you have to remember they are a friend---just not so smart as you thought and figure how to act appropriately.

Well, I feel better. Who wants a drink?
