I don't understand why women wear shoes like that. Look at them; they force her to walk pretty much on her tip toes. They can't be comfortable. This is why I believe high-heeled shoes were invented by Nazi sadists.

Solutions Update

Problem 1 - Black To Play


20170923 - Problem 1.jpg
3r2k1/5pp1/5n2/2Q5/8/8/4P1P1/5K2 b - - 0 1

Black can fork White's king and queen:

1...Rd1+!
2.Kf2 Ne4+
3.Kf3 Nxc5 and wins


Problem 2 - White To Play


20170923 - Problem 2.jpg
rn3rk1/pp3ppb/2p4p/2Pn1P2/3NN3/4q2P/PP3RB1/R2Q2K1 w - - 0 1

1.Nc2!

Traps the queen

1...Qxf2+

Best to minimize loss. Play might continue:

2.Kxf2 Bxf5
3.Nd6 Be6
4.Bxd5 cxd5
5.Nxb7 Nc6
6.Nd4 and wins


Problem 3 - White To Play


20170923 - Problem 3.jpg
2r2b1r/pN1k2pn/2pP1p2/4Pqnp/2Q5/2P3P1/PP4BP/2KRR3 w - - 0 1

1.Qf7+ Nxf7
2.e6+ Qxe6

If instead Black tries to run for with 2...Ke8 then 3.d7+ Ke7 4.dxc8=N+ Ke8 5.Bxc6#

3.Nc5+ Kd8

Or 3...Ke8 4.d7+ Kd8 5.Nxe6+ Ke7 6.dxc8=N+ Ke8 7.Bxc6#

4.Nxe6+ Kd7
5.Nc5+ Kd8
6.Nb7+ Kd7
7.Bh3+ f5
8.Bxf5#


Problem 4 - White To Play (577)


20170923 - Problem 4.jpg
6k1/5pb1/1p1N3p/p5p1/5q2/Q6P/PPr5/3RR2K w - - 0 1

So, in order to stop Black from delivering mate on h2, White needs to strike early and often, beginning with

1.Re8+! Kh7

The other move, 1...Bf8? leads to mate in short order:

1...Bf8
2.Rxf8+ Kxf8
3.Nf5+ Kg8
4.Qf8+ Kxf8 (or 4.Rd8+ Kh7 5.Rh8+ Kxh8 6.Qf8+ Kh7 7.Qg7#)
5.Rd8#

So, with 1...Kh7, Black avoids mate, but loses material. For example:

2.Qd3+ f5
3.Qxc2 Qf3+
4.Kg1 Qg3+
5.Qg2 f4
6.Qxg3 fxg3
7.Re7 and wins


Endgame of the Week


20170923 - Endgame.jpg
8/8/b7/7p/P2P4/3k3B/8/K7 w - - 0 1

In this problem, the first move is obvious: save the pawn.

1.d5 Bb7
2.d6 Bc6

Black has now got his bishop where he wants, guarding d7 and a8. But...

3.Bd7!!

A killer move that will give White time to advance his pawn.

4...Bxd7

4.a5 h4

Futile for Black is 4...Bc6 5.a6 h4 6.a7 h3 7.d7 Bxd7 8.a8=Q

5.a6 h3
6.a7 Bc6
7.a8=Q!

Not good is 7.d7? h2 8.d8=Q+ Kc2 and White is in serious trouble, i.e. 9.Qb8 h1=Q+ 10.Ka2 Qd5+ 11.Ka1 Qd4+ 12.Ka2 Qa4#

7...Bxa8
8.d7 Ke3
9.d8=Q Bg2
10.Qf6 and wins

Black's king is cut off from his pawn and rook. White can now bring his king up and trap it on either the edge of the board or against his own pieces, 10...Ke4 11.Kb2 Kd5 12.Qf4 Kc5 13.Kc3 Kd5 14.Qf5+ Kd6 15.Kd4, etc.

Hope to see you all next week!


___________

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

And it was all FREE! They even give you a swag bag if you get there early enough, so I got one. But boy howdy was that store jammed.

"Whats the fallout so far?"

The good thing about PDT is that he's not been terrorized into silence by the Left. Once they could just recite the incantation "racist, sexist, homophobe" and people would shut up. The spell is being broken by Trump. No wonder the Left has gone crazy.

OK I successfully deleted Office-365 (Office 2016) and it no longer opens under that if I click directly on the file. It now opens in Open Office. if I call up Excel 2000 first I can still open the Excel file instead of the Obt file that OO uses. But it is easier to make shortcuts that open the file directly with the assigned program.

The Golden State Warriors said Trump made the decision for them when he disinvited their all-world guard Stephen Curry earlier in the day.

I don't think it's Nazis. I think it's from the Chinese. High heels give the illusion that women's feet are smaller, which is an aesthetic from the Chinese.

Even in elementary school they taught us that Cinderella probably originated as a Chinese fable, because one of the proofs that the step-sisters were "evil" was that their feet were too big to fit into the lost glass slipper.

The title of that work is Ladies at Longchamp 1908.

I think that's absolutely right. People are learning not to let the left screech them into silence, & Trump deserves a great deal of the credit!

I think people are starting to think, if he can't be bullied, why should I let myself be?

RE: 1908 women photos

I think those are some Edward VII girls. There was a group of them called "The Souls" who hung out with him. "All I know about The Souls is that they all have beautiful bodies," it was said.

1908 would be right down the middle of the plate for Edward VII, and I note the wasp waists, which is consistent.

Paris Demi-monde girls used to say, " 'Allo Wales!"

1908? Nah, he was a settled in old man by then. He burned his way around, when he was younger. I think none of that occurred after he was crowned.

His wife, Alexandria, was drop dead gorgeous herself, by the way.

I'm pretty sure I saw the same damn photo in a bio of Edward VII.

What u said isn't entirely inconsistent-- Eddie's girlfriends came from all backgrounds.

By 1908, he was very fat & would die in 2 years, though. These ladies would be more his style circa 1900.

But the endgame is tricky. I can only swing by for a minute, but it all comes down to half a tempo.

First of all, the d-pawn has to start running immedieatley, because 1. ... Kxd4 is an immediate draw.

So...1.d5

Now, the onyl way for black to stop the pawn is 1....B-b7.

But then if 2. d6, black goes 2. ... B-c6! And the black saves the draw by half a tempo after either 3. d7 or 3 a5 (no tiem to type out the moves.)

So the only trick I can see is 2. Bg2!!, hoping for a discovered/passed pawn sneak attack after d7. So black must go 3. ...Bc8, and only THEN go 4. a5! and both passed pawns will overburden the black bishop, and king can't catch them.

That's all I got.

70 Problem 1.
1...Rd1+ 2.Kf2 Ne4+

Problem 2.
1.Nc2 traps the queen

Problem 3.
1.e6+ Nxe6 2.Rxe6 Qxe6 3.Nc5+

Problem 4.
Hmm. White is a rook up but has big problems around h2. I guess the solution starts with 1.Re8+ Bf8 2.Rxf8+ Kxf8. Now maybe 3.Nf5+ Kg8. I don't know.

Endgames are my downfall. I'd play 1.d5 and hope for the best. I don't like 1.Bf1+ because it means giving up one of my pawns.

Why doesn't McCain switch parties? As a Democrat he could vote for repeal and it would be bipartisan.

74 OK, OK I have the solution to the Anthem problem for the NFL. Players do not have to stand for the anthem, but they are not allowed to take the field if they want to kneel instead of stand. They can kneel in the locker room. Only players who want to stand can take the field for the anthem. If you kneel on the field you get fined. If you do it twice it's an automatic suspension. 3 times and you can't play in the NFL ever again.

No, what I mean is, it's ok for a prince and heir to the throne to be catting around, chasing skirts. Kings, not so much.

So... if after he became king he wanted to find some strange, they were going to have to be very discreet.

And besides, he was 60 years old when he was coronated. He was fat and wheezy and old. Maybe he still liked new ladies in his life. He just wasn't prowling around looking for it.

But Indians (dot) DO believe in a lot of woo-woo.

The first time I ever heard of the term "woo-woo" was listening to an interfaith podcast including atheist Michael Shermer, and Deepak Chopra. Chopra was talking all this mystical nonsense about quantum entanglement which proves human interconnectedness, and Shermer said "That's woo-woo!" and Chopra said "No! Dat is not woo-woo!"

Rush made a great point about this last week. When he was working for the KC Royals, they were out in Scottsdale for a marketing gathering.

He said a sociologist from Harvard was there to speak to the group, and told them something he never forgot: Sports is the only avenue in which one can invest TOTAL PASSION without suffering any ill consequences (as opposed to, say a lover, whom might reject you).

Anyway, to your point, if fans now suffer ill consequences from their favorite teams as we're seeing currently -- they will no longer be your fans.

209 NFL numbers ARE shrinking recently, but there are several different explanation offered for that. Rush discussed that last week.

NFL itself points to fact that a fan can now watch his/her team's games on the 'Net 24/7. Rush pointed out that it used to be if you were a Steelers fan living anywhere but Pittsburgh, you only had one or two chances a season to see your team play & that was on broadcast TV.

I HOPE NFL is suffering because of all their liquid horsezhit, but it's not certain. NFL of course insists that fan unhappiness with kneeling isn't part of their problem at all.

Welcome to the almost world famous AoSHQ Pet Thread. Where pets are royalty. So enjoy this week's royalty. Grab a liquid refreshment and relax.

A Little of This. A Little of That.


It's a good thing there is not Sharia for kittehs. h/t shibumi


Popular cat passes on, the station won't be the same. h/t Hank Curmudgeon


Remember, people weren't the only ones hurt by the recent hurricanes.

There have been a large number of animals displaced by flooding by Hurricane Harvey. This remains an ongoing disaster, as the Brazos and San Bernard Rivers are still above flood stage.

My wife and I traveled to the Brazoria County Fairgrounds in Angleton, TX, where a refuge has been set up at the county fairgrounds. Dogs, cats, horses, cattle, goats and chickens are safe there from any further ravages of nature, but the sight is still heartbreaking and these four-footed friends will need ongoing help. Please consider making a contribution to the SPCA of Brazoria County (https://spcabc.wordpress.com) or the Houston SPCA (http://www.houstonspca.org) or your local shelter.

Thank you.

Hey guys,

Here is our cat Samantha. She is our Christmas cat having gotten her for our oldest son 8 years ago from the pound for a Christmas present.

She likes to lay around and recently achieved her life long goal of sleeping 36 hours in a 24 hour period. Way to go to Samantha.

She also loves to jump on our bed at night and purr and kneed the sheets. If I can just train her to massage my back, it'll be golden.

We just recently discovered that if you scratch just above the base of her tail she gets an uncontrollable urge to lick herself on the shoulder. My wife and kids think it's hilarious to no end but I feel sorry for her when she goes into the trance. -Ken

Thank you for sharing with us this afternoon Ken.

Puppies 001.jpg

Long-time lurker. These are 6 of the 8 rescues in our pack of spoiled rotten doggehs, with Aubrey, Hannah and Riley front and center and with Bailey, Chelsea and Brody in the background. They’re all mutts of unknown provenance nor of prior life circumstance. They eat, they sleep, they play hard, they eat some more, they sleep yet again and they don’t do a lick of house work. A pack of 8 dogs does, however, make an excellent burglar alarm and we have multiple delivery personnel that approach our house with great trepidation. They are all adored and I can’t imagine life without them. -Fred

I'm with you Fred. Can't imagine a life without pets. They are a nice looking crew. There is no mischief in any of those eyes.

Since you asked:

Last October, we had to put down Charlie, the Sheltie whose photo you used last year; old age finally caught him. Around Christmas, I remembered our vet telling me how the holidays are when the most dogs are dumped/left/surrendered at this office so I asked him to let me know if a small dog good with traveling became available.

The next day, he called back to tell me he had a dog whose owners had to give him up due to family health problems. Thanks to them, we now have Jude, a black miniature poodle. He’s five years old, loves hiking, accompanying me while geocaching, and jumping from the motor coach to see what’s new at each stop. He’s not much on obedience, but we’re working on that. - wcgreen

So sorry to hear about your loss. But, so happy that you have a new dog in your life. Thanks for the submission.

Hi guys,

Long time lurker and occasional commenter. Sidenote: I occasionally used the name 'MyGfHasBigBoobies' until the horde demanded pictures to prove it. Now it's 'MyWifeHasBigBoobies' booyah!

That is CJ, who was my wife's cat when we first started dating. She didn't like me in the beginning, as I came from a dog family and she totally ignored me. Now, almost six years later, I can't get her to leave my side and she has accepted me as family. Thanks for the blog, keeps me sane in an insane world. - Zach

Glad the cat has accepted you. Because we (husbands) all know if Momma aint happy, no one is happy. Regal looking kitteh.

IMG_3120 (1).jpg

Long time lurker scmommy and this is our girl Darla. Our 3 year old rescued us 2 years ago. The police found her abandoned, the vet estimated she had been on the streets for about a month. Here she is hiding from the thunder raging outside, pretty sure my baby got caught up in some storms during her time on the streets. When the weather isn't so loud, she protects us from the evil squirrel population in the neighborhood.

Thanks scmommy. Your poor Darla looks just miserable with that storm at hand. Thanks for being a lurker and a submitter!

Hi -- I'm a lurker and sometime commenter 'Alix'

I just love Pet Thread and -- and so I thought I'd submit our two mini Aussie Shepherds for consideration. On the left is Noel (8 years old) and on the right is Rosie (just 5 months old). Rosie sure loves to play. Noel does too -- but sometimes she's too tired and gets slightly annoyed with Rosie. It's so much fun to watch them interact.

Thank you!
Alix

No need to thank us. We thank you. Just an adorable photo how did you manage to get them to sit still? Thanks again.

Thanks again you folks! What a wonderful group of pets and some very neat stories. Do you have something you wish to share? You can reach us at petmorons at g mail dot com.

Have a great week!!!!

Thanks for sharing. Sometimes I do make your pics my iPad wallpaper for a week or so. Hope that is okay. They are daily reminders to smile.

Also, the art thread has had some scary pics I cannot use for wallpaper. And the squid with teeth pic that made 2 separate threads on 2 separate days was a visual nightmare! And those unholy dolls were from a horror flick. Sadly, those are emblazoned on my brain...of course.

Some COBs have a Vincent Price streak in them. Or the mischieveness of a brother. I'm sure they Muahahahahaha with devilish delight at least weekly. Except for the sweet Pet thread.

30 Way to go Miss Delilah!

Hadrian, voterpup is awesome except he's a car chaser. We are working hard on that.

Today I got him to just stand at a stop when cars go by, so yay! (We are practicing walking side by side and stopping randomly).

Oh he also gets way too excited at seeing other people - hooman & doggo, so that's another thing to work on.

He loves to play tug, gets really fierce complete with play growls, and he loves to play fetch. And sometimes he just wants to be petted and if you stop petting him he nudges you until you remember not to stop.

Sure, the puma on a leash is nice, but Trump with a long thick leather glove with a falcon perched on the end is a nice optic as well.

/bonus points if the falcon has one of the bird Antifa masks on...

135 Love the pets this week.

I taught our rescue dog Ole who was very food motivated and fairly give me attention wired to sit, lay down, and got him to 'play dead' with some prompting. The next step would have been roll over but we never got there. I took care to never teach Ole to shake hands as with his personality there was high risk that he would paw at people randomly demonstrating his trick in hopes of praise and treats. I also taught Ole "stay out of the kitchen when I'm working in here" Ours is narrow and I hated having him underfoot. With a bit of shooing out and treats when he stayed outside the doorway he quickly learned to park himself just outside but where I could see him "being good"

Toby came knowing sit, lay down and play dead and I reinforce once in a while. Mia knew sit, she didn't need a lot because she was always outside.

If I had a lot of free time and wanted to really explore teaching a dog new things I would pursue dog agility. I think the instructors sometimes recommend starting with rally just to learn to have the dog do stuff with spectators around and beyond leash range.

Saturday Gardening Thread: Fall has fallen! [KT]

aug 3 vermont.jpg

Is that cat a pointer?

According to Vermont Fish & Wildlife, August 3 was opening day of zucchini season. Anybody know how long the season lasts there? Guess it doesn't matter much if frost hits. From the Old Farmer's Almananc, average first and last frost dates across the country. You can look up local charts for more specific garden information. Today, we have content on garden bounty and on cutting flowers you can plant in the fall or spring - for fall/winter bloom in mild climates or spring bloom in cold-winter climates. Inspired by Illiniwek's wild-ish flower border. I think I can handle some of those flowers on a little smaller scale.

Zucchini and Tomato Recipes

Lawrence Larson sent in a couple of the recipes he mentioned last week for using his abundance of zucchini and tomatoes.

We wear out the zucchini and tomato casserole all summer long so we use different cheeses.

Bet this one is great with the fresh dill option:

Zucchini and Tomato Casserole

4 medium zucchini, cubed
3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill weed or 1.5 teaspoons dried dill
ground black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon margarine, melted
2 large tomatoes, sliced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves
3/4 cup grated Romano cheese (feel free to substitute to your tastes)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 2-quart casserole dish.

2. Place zucchini in a pot fitted with a steamer basket over boiling water. Steam 5 minutes, or until tender but firm. Transfer to the casserole dish. Mix the dill, pepper, and margarine, and stir into the casserole dish, evenly coating zucchini. Layer tomato slices over zucchini, and sprinkle with basil and Romano cheese.

3. Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until bubbly and golden brown.

The Blueberry Zucchini bread never makes it out of our house alive because it's absolutely wonderful with coffee.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

3 eggs lightly beaten
1 cup vegetable oil
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups white sugar
2 cups shredded zucchini

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 pint fresh blueberries

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Lightly grease 5 mini loaf pans
3. Beat together eggs, oil, vanilla and sugar
4. Fold in zucchini

5. Beat in flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon
6. Gently fold in blueberries
7. Fill mini loaf containers half full - place on cookie tray
8. Bake 50 minutes
9. Cool 20 minutes in pan and then transfer to wire rack

Thanks, Lawrence. The recipes sound wonderful. Wish I had some bigger tomatoes or some zucchini in the garden right now. Oh, well. Memories:

IMG_0833 (2).JPG

Don't forget to check for late comments on the Garden Thread

Speaking of bounty from gardens, here's a sample of the information you may have missed if you didn't check back on last week's thread on Saturday night and Sunday:

Pat* asked about spots on her Early Girl tomatoes that turn grey underneath. She provided some instructions for lining the bottom of a raised bed with hardware cloth to keep burrowing critters out and recommended "get tough" measures for parsley and chives. She also gave her typical comprehensive garden report.

Gordon responded with a nice recipe for Pobalo peppers baked with chicken, cheese and cream cheese. Mmmmm.

JQ gave us a garden report including details on various tomatoes and an update on her hop plants.

Shanks for the memory gave a jealousy-inducing garden summary, with details on veggies and his plans for a hillside filled with daffodils (and other yellow flowers). Then there was the food from the garden and nearby farms:

This evening I made black bean pork belly with a side dish of eggplant that I simmered in a garlicky sauce.

We cracked the first jar of homemade kimchi made with garlic scapes and Mu, a crisp white Korean daikon radish. I'm a fermenting fiend this year...I bought a set of inexpensive fermenting valve cap thingies that fit on mason jars. Makes a huge difference in quality/texture and no exploding lids or weeping jars.

Ha! i just ate a peach that was a dead ringer for the photo...stopped at a farm and got two punnets of the last of the year's peaches. They are either Fayette or Flamecrest...the lean-to stand wasn't staffed (they still use the honor system hereabouts on the backroads).

Belgian waffles and sliced peaches for brekkie tomorrow.

There's a recipe for the black bean pork belly dish at the link above. Scroll down to his comment.

Has anybody taken a photo of an eggplant you grew?

In the Labor Day Weekend Thread we saw the early stages of Illiniwek's flower border, grown from seed on newly-prepared ground. Ambitious. Some of us could grow some of the same flowers on a less-ambitious scale in our own yards. Two of the first that came up in his border are also noted as good cut flowers for fall. They are Cornflower (Bachelor Buttons) and Sulfur Coreopsis. Fast growers. Cornflower prefers cool weather. It comes in shades of blue, pink, rose and white.

Sulfur Coreopsis can take more heat, but starts to look weedy late in summer from spring sowing, so it can be re-planted for fall blossoms. It comes in yellow (as suggested by the name), gold, orange and orange-red shades. Wild sulfur coreopsis is up to 7 feet tall. The one in the photo is a tall garden type called 'Towering Orange' for cutting. There are many dwarf strains.

sulfur coreopsis.jpgcornflower blue.jpg

Bachelor Buttons got that name for lasting a long time in a buttonhole. Sulfur coreopsis should be picked soon after it opens and placed in deep, cool water before arranging in bouquets.

If you would like to grow a few flowers for cutting this fall or next spring, start preparing a little patch of soil, water and do some weed control, because more recommendations are coming. Those in the South might want to get a garden pot ready.

Finally, Hank Curmudgeon sent in the following inspiration for Morons who may need a little extra firepower for that important Fall Yard Cleanup.

Kraut Lawnmower.jpg


Gardens of The Horde

Yes, Shanks for the Memory, I am gearing up for winter gardening. Passing out some seeds to other people tonight, too. I'll probably do broccoli from plants, lettuce and arugula (not for me). Maybe some other veggies, too. And some flowers.

Anything going on in your garden?

Slowly getting ripe Anaheim peppers, but so far I think only from 1 of 4 plants. Was wondering if its sun or amount of green foliage that has to do with it. Was pinching off some leaves around peppers.

11 I tilled up a long strip next to my flower border, (where I had the melons, and half the tomatoes) ... and was thinking of throwing something down there. We have had 90+ temps for a few days ... finally 3/4" rain. I'll have to review all the suggestions here a little later. I still have the pump set up from the pond, so could get them up fast.

timely suggestions KT, thx

the long row still looks pretty good, several monarchs appearing lately.

15 Happy Saturday everyone. We're eating the last of the tomatoes ripening on the window sill this weekend. Some of the Simpson Elite leaf lettuce self sowed and we are getting a second crop, which is a complete surprise. We're planting some more of it in the now empty Earth Boxes with hopes for a decent crop.

Crack dust, black dust!

Posted by: Fox2! at September 23, 2017 01:18 PM (brIR5)

27 Am I early this week? What a shocker!

Here in Idaho's Treasure Valley, Fall has indeed fallen. I'd already added a quilt to my bed, and my heater now runs every morning. I use the Weather Underground website's most local station to figure out what the temperature is by me - and last night was 31 F. I did check the garden, and we did not have frost - thank goodness.

I'm pretty much writing off my fall crops, though. The radishes might make it, and I *might* get baby carrots, but the lettuce, peas, and spinach will probably not make it. I'm still hoping the grass seed from our second planting will come up - the first planting looks great.

We had a damp week, with several days of drizzle and light rain. Monday afternoon, we even had a thunderclap so strong, it rattled the beer bottles on our kitchen table!

We canned up 10 half-pint jars of red raspberry jelly last Sunday, and 7 half-pint jars of tomato sauce this morning. I've been cutting up and freezing cantaloupes as they come ripe.

I'm working on cutting down the green bean plants, as room appears in the trash. This week, the trash was largely taken up with trimmings from the wild rose bushes that are part of our windbreak, on the back edge of our property. We removed the landscape cloth we'd laid down when we started the row, and will now let them fill in between themselves, and spread back toward the canal. Husband will mow down any sprouts that get out of bounds.

Our windbreak also has lilacs - we know 4 of those didn't make it. And of the baby blue spruces, at least 2 are dead. We'll make an order now, so we can replace those in the spring. The chokecherries are doing fine, so *eventually*, I'll be asking after recipes.

I also tackled digging out the parsley in the blueberry bed. There's just one blueberry bush that hasn't been rescued - it also has a thyme plant under it. I plan to dig both the parsley and thyme, and save the thyme sprigs for drying. And next year, NO parsley in that bed! I might even get tough and remove some of the chives from the second blueberry bed - I already have enough dried chives to last several years...

I wonder how long my tomatoes and red raspberries will keep ripening if it stays chilly? It's supposed to get warmer this week, so I'll see.

The leaves haven't really started falling yet - just a few off the linden - but I have all that exercise to look forward to. Time to pull out the wool socks and the fleece jacket.

Usually when you have a very warm Indian Summer the bottom falls out after it is over. And the OFA is predicting a cold Winter for most of the US.

39 This thread reminded me that I used to make a zucchini and chocolate cake that was delicious. Unfortunately I cannot find the recipe, it's been years since I've had enough room to grow zucchini so it's been years since I've made that cake.

I'm sure all the major recipe sites all have versions of it, the key is to shred the zucchini so that it disappears in the final cake. Unlike carrots, zucchini shredded finely will basically melt away, leaving a moist and chocolately cake.

56 We're having Indian Summer here too - high 80s to low 90s all this past week. Monday night the seasonable weather is forecast to roll back in.
We haven't got a garden in this place yet, back in the spring we were too busy working on the house to get anything set up. We have been busily canning and freezing produce right along though, mostly from the local Amish.
Last week we canned pickled beets and tomato puree, there's another 25 pounds of big yellow 'maters in the kitchen right now that I'm gonna run through the juicer. Also a bushel of apples that will become either applesauce or cider in the next couple of days, depending on available time and energy. Just chopped up and froze a dozen big bell peppers.
Tomorrow Mrs Eez will be picking and juicing Concord grapes at a friends place nearby, hoping to freeze up 30 pints or so. I'm hoping for more so I can make some grape jelly.

Plans are in the works to get a garden in next year in the early spring.

Mrs. JTB makes a simple topping of peeled, coarsely chopped apples sautéed with Splenda, vanilla extract, a little lemon juice and cinnamon. We use apples from the local farmers market. The mixture freezes just fine. You can do the same thing with autumn pears as well.

I use it on oatmeal, pancakes, ice cream, in yogurt, etc.

SE MI here. Brutal winters. After years of taking my strawberry pot indoors for the winter last Fall I experimented with wintering my potted strawberries outside for the first time due to lack of space indoors. First I lined the outer of the pot with wrap insulation & then placing the pot in an even larger pot for extra insulation. This insulation I removed in the Spring. To my surprise the strawberries not only survive the winter but this summer many many runners. Planning on giving the runners just fallen leaves to insulate them this season & hoping to have me a full fledge strawberry patch next Spring. Yippee!

88 On the zucchini and tomato casserole recipe above: Probably a good idea not to skip the step where you pre-cook the zucchini. If you start raw zucchini with tomatoes, it often squeaks against your teeth when it is "done".

KT--re: last week + my 'Jubilee' tomatoes-- They are actually a Yellow Pear, I guess. The tag said 'Jubilee' and had a pic of what mine actually look like, bought at HomeDespot. (Misspelling intentional, lol.)

Bing search reveals Jubilee is an heirloom yellow salad-type, which is *not* what my plants have yielded. Hmm. Might hafta try this one.

Cooler temps last week and thru weekend (mid 60s -- mid 40s), then a little lift before autumn then slams us in earnest. Loving the current phase and wish it lasted longer.

90 I would make zucchini coconut flour cake or cookies (any flavoring adding will work - chocolate, vanilla, etc.,) or zucchini noodles with those oversized zucchinis. Low carb, low calorie. Have ya seen the price of zucchini noodles in the grocery store lately? Hiway robbery.

Hey Vic, I have two calendars. One says "Autumn Begins" and the other says "Fall Begins" for yesterday.



You can't really trust meteorologists anyway.

Met Fall is Sep 1. Astronomical Autumn equinox was yesterday. But unless you live in space it really has no use. But like I said, we were getting Fall weather here in mid-August, about two weeks early. But despite the "Indian Summer" temps we have been having during the past few days, the average daily high for Sep this year is still running 8 degrees less than last year. The entire Summer has been much cooler than normal here.

Posted by: KT at September 23, 2017 02:56 PM (BVQ+1)

96 Yes KT, the grocery stores here offer both zucchini or yellow squash noodles. Trick is to precook them because they weep a lot of water, after which, then add whatever sauce. I had no idea about the precook tip when adding tomatoes, because I always precooked the noodles & drained then first because of their water content. Same goes for do low carb pastries with zucchini or squash.. Gotta let those squash family members weep first, they are so very melodramatic -)

Wegmans carries a julienned zucchini sometimes labeled as noodles.

Simply a zucchini which has been viral shredded into log strings of zucchini.

101 Well, if the *real* Jubilee doesn't like the heat, no sense in my growing it.

Yellow Pear isn't a bad tomato, just kinda average. The plants are quite attractive, esp. when loaded with fruit, so that's a plus. Would grow them again, for sure.

I'm waiting to see if any more toms ripen on the vines... would simply pack it in for this year, if not for the promise of another week of warm temps coming up.

Oh, and the poblano peppers have a final small crop. I think they've enjoyed their afternoon shade this summer. Production wasn't gangbusters, but I think more due to potted confinement (and extreme heat causing blossom drop) than lack of light.

My 'Bush Steak Hybrid' tomatoes finally began ripening last week. 10 ounce tomatoes, big enough to cover an entire slice of toast.

But they took over 120 days, not the 65 as advertised. AGW strikes again. Cold spring, early summer cool. Only three 90 degree days.

Next year, I diversify. In diversity is strength, or so the leftist tell us.

I actually thought I had some cherry tomatoes growing, but they were big guys, too.

106 "I think we decided your yellow pond-side flowers are Helenium. Thought about introducing some named ones to bump up the color? "Posted by: KT

good idea, I'd love to have something other than yellow, and these are very dominant, coming up even after I mowed many down. In time I'd like to get something else going that will bloom long time during the summer. I have quite a few orange day lilies coming along ... those 5 red stick (4 others on this side) ... the aspen white bark idea would be nice but the one I had that survived got eaten down by deer again.

I happen to have an old rock quarry on the property, and at some point may use some big white rocks/boulders to give more visual interest. As it is my surroundings become a sea of green for most of the summer. I have a few red bud scattered around in the woods, need to promote more of those. All in due time I guess. Another border wall of flowers that are perennial would be good, not disturbing soil after letting weeds come up next time.

right now the pond is low (mild drought) so I have two feet of bare dirt all around, but would have to plant something that would thrive in water.

always appreciate your ideas. cheers

Destroying Cherished Knowledge [KT]

Serving your mid-day open thread needs

FoundingFathers.jpg

With all the things kids will not be allowed to learn in school, how will they collectively earn enough money to pay for Obamacare II?

James Jupp, a scholar of critical white studies, articulated his commitment to the destruction of "Whitestream cherished knowledge" in an article published Tuesday for the "White Scholars Working Against Whiteness" issue of the journal Whiteness and Education.

Question: Was Herbert Marcuse white enough to be considered "white"? He served in the German army. Critical Theory seems to be cherished in whitestream academia now. Must Critical Theory be destroyed? Would that include Critical White Studies?

Some of the links in the piece are also disturbing. For example, your tax dollars at work, teaching young people that diversity of thought is white supremacist bullshit.

You can already see the effects of this kind of pedagogy. Here's a prime example, The Nazi Mass Hysteria of 2017.

This week, over 5,000 Leftists, liberal writers and other verified accounts, and apparently Chelsea Clinton, became absolutely convinced that I, a gay Jew, am a Nazi.

It all began with CUNY professor Angus Johnston going on a rant about why it is not only ok, but morally just, to physically assault various groups of people engaging in what he considers 'hate.' . . . .

I objected to the notion that being a minority made me helpless and weak in his eyes to the point that others would need to rescue me from bigoted people saying mean things through physical force. I also highly objected to the notion that assault is considered a solution to speech you do not like.

That's when the Wrath of the Left fell upon him. It's not just Berkeley and Evergreen, friends.

12 Chad Felix Greene is wrong.

There are some differences that are insurmountable, and if people are too different in their outlook, they can't be persuaded to be tolerant.

That's what the real nature of the culture war, or Kultur Kampf (in the original German) is about.
The external part in Weimar was the street fights between the Bolsheviks and the Frei Corps, Brownshirts, whatever.

The Middle class bourgeouis were held hostage to both camps, and didn't stand up for themselves. So what happened was sort of decided at the ballot box, and Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany, and then things got a little better, then a lot worse, obviously.
And a longer term consequence was the part of Germany was occuppied by the USSR for 45 years, and even now, Germany's politics became perverted by their longtime exposure to communism.

Out country has now become too fractured to ever be United again. There are no common bonds to be restored. An angry fraction of so-called black intellectuals can froth at the mouth, but the rest of us have to live with the personal unease of diminishing social trust among all of us.

The future is a dark road.

You're not wrong. Over the past week since the Stockly verdict, I've heard a lot of racist comments, and 95% of them were made by black people.

I'll give it a shot. The people who are out to destroy "White Privilege" and "White Culture" are the worst racists. They are working from the premise that all non-whites are inferior and need "benevolent" white people to look after them and suppress all those other successful whites so that the non-whites can then succeed.

Non-racists really don't see a race, only individuals, all with different abilities. Racists only see race.

58 "Question: Was Herbert Marcuse white enough to be considered "white"? He served in the German army. Critical Theory seems to be cherished in whitestream academia now. Must Critical Theory be destroyed? Would that include Critical White Studies?"

Don't be silly. We don't believe a damn thing we say beyond its serving as an expedient tool for power. We discard useless ideas like we do people; either they help us toward power or it's an obstacle to power. No exceptions. Nothing is neutral.

Why?

70 Football Threads? Whatever happen to them?

Posted by: Geroge at September 23, 2017 12:02 PM (aTg6G)

71 Colleges should start an alumni league to replace the NFL. Regional drafts, you must graduate to play. Inter-regional play followed by playoffs and a "Super-College Bowl". That would be entertaining. The colleges could pick up more money without the NFL and run the show themselves.

Posted by: Meremortal


Question (I'm not a football aficionado): would such a league have games that would be "interesting" enough to satisfy the interests of hardcore football fans, at least until it gained enough momentum to attract top tier talent?

I'm assuming that the most talented players would still want to join the NFL to get the big bucks, so unless enough fans who hate what the NFL is doing had the willpower to watch the new league games instead of the NFL, it would never gain that momentum.

Yeah, I don't know about equality.

I think it's more about diminishing those who are "white" and elevating those who are "not white."

Also... pretty sure that "asian" and "hispanic" are defacto "white" and that "african not white" is preferred to "non-african not white."

So really, it's all about the color of your skin. NOT your character, not your achievements, nothing but color. And "rich successful black man in the corporate world" is essentially "white" as well, unless he is really, REALLY supporting The Cause.

Which seems.... really racist.

They may have started a sequence of seismic events that might just do that. While opinion is divided, the quake is about half the intensity (I know, logarithmic scales etc) of the last one. More in line with the quake that occurred shortly after the last nuke test.

136 Speaking of 'hate speech' --

For some reason I recall SC allowing charging enhancement and/or sentencing enhancements for some crimes, ie hitting a cop or armed robbery with a gun rather than a knife. I think there are other enhanced actions as well. So this could be the logical extension.

From an article entitled "What Happened To Moby Grape?" (http://tinyurl.com/yctbjtud):

On June 6, 1967, Moby Grape celebrated the release of their self-titled album with a splashy party and performance at San Francisco's Avalon Ballroom (of which more momentarily). Early the next morning, Miller, Spence, and Lewis were popped in Marin County after police discovered them cavorting with three underage girls. The three men were charged with contributing to the delinquency of minors, and Miller was also charged with possession of marijuana.

All charges were later dropped, but the incident could not have added any luster to Moby Grape's rep in the eyes of the Columbia executives who had just spent a small fortune launching their brand-new act.

159 The "WASPy" culture of the founders has been under assault openly for at least 50 years, as the (Soviet funded/inspired/infiltrated) Dem/commies marched through our institutions.

Trump shocked them as they were implanting Crooked Hillary, and they are now out of the box crazy in their desperate assault on middle (working) America. The clarion call to their crazies may have been forced out before they had critical mass.

The founders didn't push "diversity of thought" so much as individual liberty. One state might lean Baptist, another Puritan ... Anglican, Quaker, Lutheran, and a few Catholic and Jewish spots.

They fought for liberty, against other whites that were oppressing them. This is what oppressed people of every race/ethnicity do, or they become the conquered. Islam conquered Christians (of any race) for centuries and still hold violent control of the Middle East, and now much of Africa (MENA).

But the initiator of these "culture wars" is largely the Soviets that decided to control the minds, since controlling the economy was too difficult. So the "whiteness is evil" thing is to tear down strong society, by injecting hedonist belief as some higher ground of "freedom".

"The philosophy of loyalty" (God and Country, one nation under God) is what holds society together, not diversity, (arrived at after a few minutes in this video, starting at 4:50). As our founders said, America is designed for "Christians". So the shadow globalists (mostly white) must stir up the underclass against the middle, and they use hedonism, with Christianity conflated with racism (white supremacy). The globalist elite are actual psychopaths, as witnessed to by the Skull and Bones thing, or the Bohemian Grove pagan stuff.

If it's difficult to uninstall I go to the program files and rename all the associated files. It's done in such a manner that if I have created a problem or decide I want the program to run all that's necessary is to un-rename them.

It's done like this:

filename: fileIdontLike
The files are renamed: no_fileIdontLike

Doing this stops the file from running. And if you change your mind just eliminate the no_. I use no_ so that I know who tinkered with the file.

Only the fact that the NFL and the NBA are overwhelmingly dominated by black athletes is the reason why all this is an issue.

I first became aware of this decades ago reading Ayn Rand. After reading her fiction novels, I read "The New Left: The Anti-Industrial Revolution" (1971) in which she commented on the 60's campus protests and ideology in a series of essays. She concluded that far from rebelling, the students even then were slavishly following every basic idea of their professors -- and far from being idealistic, they were attacking the key foundations of a rational and free society.

That book, with additional essays added, was republished in 1999 entitled "Return of the Primitive."

205 173 Honest question: can sporting franchises put it in their employment contracts that players must stand during the national anthem?

Posted by: shibumi at September 23, 2017 12:44 PM (aT+Bx)



Too legalistic, and too easy to game. (Suppose, e.g., that they stand but give the black power fist or something instead?)

Instead I'd subtly give players to understand that their chances of playing in the NFL depended on their behaving themselves generally speaking. No political demonstration, no mouthing off, no crimes, no arrests, no domestic violence, no nothing.

Of course, you'd need all the owners to be on board with this, but if the alternative is dropping revenue, I'd imagine even SJW owners (if any such there be) would fall into line.

207 In Haywood v. Univ. of Pittsburgh, NO. 11-1200, 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS
140263 (W.D. Pa. Sept. 30, 2013), the U.S. District Court for the
Western District of Pennsylvania considered whether the University of
Pittsburgh breached its employment contract
with a former football coach who was terminated following his arrest in
connection with a domestic incident several weeks after his hiring. In
support of its decision to terminate the coach's employment, the
university invoked the so-called "morals clause" in the contract, which
essentially provided that the university would not have to pay the coach
the amounts owed under the contract if the contract was terminated for
"just cause" based on conduct that was contrary to the best interests of
the university.



The court ruled in favor of the University.

I do like that the load times are considerably lower in Brave than PM. There is a bug with the LastPass extension under Brave that needs attention, though.

The thing about the NFL and the NBA is that this is the one shot those guys have at making good. What is the alternative for them - going to medical school or something? No. If they wash out of the NFL or NBA, for most of them it's back to the ghetto, where for each one of them there's a thousand guys who'd give anything for a shot at their position.

So you'd think if they had any brains at all - I'm on thin ice here, obviously - they'd tread a bit lightly in the circumstances. But then you'd be wrong.

Posted by: Soothsayer -- Fake Commenter


The left is comfortable with running US congressmen off the road, shooting them, using violence to silence conservative speech, haranguing people in public for wearing MAGA hats, vandalizing their property, publicly throwing aside any kind of civilized behavior (Pence at the Hamilton play, etc.), death threats (Griffin).

And they are comfortable knowing that we will not retaliate in kind. I almost look forward to the day when they will overstep the bounds.

289 They have indoctrinated many but at least for "operational purposes" I don't want to believe that. Kim Jung Un is a tell ... the left is saying now, he is more sane than Trump. Do street level leftists (average joe that average Trump guy works with) really believe the dark hermit grass eating kingdom is as wonderful as America?

Trump is throwing it in their face ... and that is what is needed. 20% crazies are very vocal and break things (though even that is largely funded Soros crap). So a great awakening is possible. If not, we'll burn that bridge when we come to it. (that last phrase sounds clever, not sure what it means exactly, but I like the phrasing. lol)

That Fat Boy is now being held up as better than Trump shows either no knowledge of North Korea, or end stages Leftist disease, or both. This guy starves people in his country. I've read stories from those who have escaped to US & it is horrific. Just beyond imaginings.

I haven't read the twitter stuff, so I don't know if the Left is jk around, or they really think that. Posts here seem to indicate that some are serious.

I'm so embarrassed that people worldwide are seeing our banana republic. When I get down, I remind myself that there are 325 million people in the US to give me some perspective. And I think most are disturbed by this crap on the left. It is just that the Borg Medusa complex elevates & amplifies it.

2018 elections will be interesting. Tech has strangled info across all platforms, media has quadrupled down, identity politics have gone insane. If in 2018 it looks like none of these efforts have worked for the left, I don't know what will be next. I never anticipate how crazy & low they can go...I just know they keep exceeding the low bar.

Trump also hired a woman for a big building in the 90's when others would not ... Sharpton loved him .... he was America First testifying to congress as an expert in 1990 and was right then, right now. MFM are leftist liars always.

Rand Paul knows that if this "fix" passed that would be it.

Oh, the information was available, and confirmed, as the UK Mail had a very fact filled article on the same day as our original local story broke.

The old yardarm hanging and flogging punishments were in Vic's Navy. Those restrictions on punishment were opposed by 90% of the then current seagoing officer corps, They were convinced that such punishments were needed to run a ship.

The "official" name is Non-Judicial Punishment or NJP. It was called that because by the time you made it there you were already guilty. The XO did the "investigation" and made recommendations to the Captain. It is only used for low level rule breaking and was limited in the sentences handed out. Captain's Mast is what everybody called it though due to tradition where violators were called "before mast" in view of the who ship's company to witness. The usual punishment in those days was lashes.


Now if you want big time punishment you have to hold them for a General or Special Court-martial. And no, captains no longer have the authority to execute sailors at sea. However, I still think they can officiate marriages.

119 One of the main attacks against Trump and his supporters, from the start, was that he and his supporters form a "cult of personality." They never called it that by name but the implications were made in stories about him and those who supported him. It was also implied in the derogatory names that his supporters were called incessantly.

That the Democrats see every leader, the world over, as the head of a personality/identity cult. That Obama and Hillary were both quite creepily so. This was covered as something cute not eerie and/or evil. But with Trump it was portrayed as frightening. Hitler born again.

Now if Luther Strange loses the primary runoff that idea, of Trump as the leader of a personality cult, is refuted. Refuted in the only way these things can be, by actions not words.

What this leaves his opposition is the unsettling reality that there is a very large group of people out there who do not worship Trump as Trump but are devoted to the policies/ideas he espoused. That destroying Trump will not destroy his supporters since he is but an instrument they are using and if it breaks they will pickup another. One which may be blunter and more destructive but will work toward their goal.

Mine is a 'low number' as well. I looked into the army investigation in the 1920s. Turns out only a few ever blew up, even with the older heat treatment of the receivers, and that was from using the wrong ammo. But that 'low number means disaster' is still trotted out as a given, like gravity, by people who can't be bothered to read and just parrot the same ignorant crap.

Apparently the USMC couldn't afford to take them out of service and shot out the original barrel. I love that rifle and love taking it to the range and plinking
Posted by: Weasel at September 23, 2017 09:24 AM (Sfs6o)

Yup.....the Army zealously removed the low numbers due to safety concerns back in the day, removing them from service when they came in to the armorer for any kind of service while the Marines, being cheap and under budgeted as usual, saved everything and kept them in use. I think the Marine rifles have a hole drilled for pressure relief in case of case failure but not all do.

141 When I was developing a load for my '03 I was amazed at how loose the chamber is, which is totally understandable for a battle rifle. Peeking inside with a borescope, the barrel is pristine so I'm just going to live with it. I also have a Model of 1917 which had a terribly corroded barrel so I sent it back to the CMP for a new barrel and gave them the chamber tolerances I wanted for the load and bullet I had in mind and they absolutely nailed it. They do great work and I highly recommend them.

144 119 One of the main attacks against Trump and his supporters, from the start, was that he and his supporters form a "cult of personality." They never called it that by name but the implications were made in stories about him and those who supported him. It was also implied in the derogatory names that his supporters were called incessantly.

That the Democrats see every leader, the world over, as the head of a personality/identity cult. That Obama and Hillary were both quite creepily so. This was covered as something cute not eerie and/or evil. But with Trump it was portrayed as frightening. Hitler born again.

Mine is a 'low number' as well. I looked into the army investigation
in the 1920s. Turns out only a few ever blew up, even with the older
heat treatment of the receivers, and that was from using the wrong ammo.
But that 'low number means disaster' is still trotted out as a given,
like gravity, by people who can't be bothered to read and just parrot

right, the smear of the Trump supporter (not just Trump) showed a really nasty side of the leftists, though it always existed. But with Trump succeeding, they went full bore with "all white people are Nazi/KKK unless they denounce everything about Trump". Of course in reality the patriots voting Trump want to stop the DC/NY mafia that is the end of liberty.

Now we have Kimmel coordinating talking points with Schemer, and he goes right to the "personal destruction" that the left always engages in. He calls Cassidy a liar "Lied to my Face".

But Kimmel was lying, and these babies have always gotten the care even under Medicaid and other programs. Kimmel also did not reveal he was being a puppet for Schemer, coordinating the messaging for months.

In a sense letting Obamacare fail may be politically smart. The latest fix doesn't fix much, but block granting power back to the states is pretty huge, as I see it. The DC Mob really doesn't want that.

??? I thought this was well-known.

One of the greatest officers the Air Force has produced, Col. John Boyd, was nicknamed "Forty Second" Boyd, for his ability to reverse position on someone on his six within forty seconds, as a result of his development and application of the OODA loop concept. (If any in The Horde are unfamiliar with Col. Boyd, I highly recommend a DuckDuckGo session for familiarization with both him and OODA.)

Air Force fighter pilots are reknown for two characteristics:

One, an out-sized ego.
Two, the "forty second" moniker. Not, unfortunately, for the reason Col. Boyd held it.

Women with experience of Air Force fighter pilots I have known have confirmed both.

I always liked the notion of a Navy disciplinary action being referred to as Captain's Mast. In my mind it always conjured up images of yardarms and walking the plank. Or at least someone getting keelhauled.

yeah there is still too much flowing through DC, and they will add SOME strings. But at this point giving states control is the better option, at least in theory.

I don't know how the block grants are apportioned, so maybe they do have to keep going back to beg. From hearing Scott Walker it sounded like this would be good for more responsible states, but less good for CA or IL that will lean toward full socialized medicine. devil in the details

In the end, care has to be limited (2nd tier, or 3rd) for those that get free stuff, and that should be limited to citizens or maybe otherwise legal entries.

it worked for Trump, but he was better at it, and he was the outsider pointing out the duplicity of the smear campaigns of the left.

258 Gotta give Maryland credit for something.

The MVA (State level agency) has has had a vehicle emissions program for years.

Every two years, you drive up to a VEIP center, hand them $14.00, and they spend two minutes downloading data from your vehicle diagnostics port.

A money generating job banker both the State, and the VEIP employees..
Similar to how Delaware has eliminated most toll booth operators, and have gone with RFID toll paying, yet Maryland resists going this way, to ensure continuing longevity of the Job Bank.

But, they implemented a new DIY kiosk where you can do your own emissions testing, and the cost drops from $14.00 to $10.00

Tried it, and it's pretty painless.

All of the so-called contemptuous accounts were made by his political enemies during an election. That was just about as credible as the Scankles' BS Russia lies. As for the DNA evidence it was not conclusive. And on top of that at the time he was accused of having sex with the Hemmings woman he was in France having an affair with some elderly French count's wife. So it is highly unlikely that he was carrying on with his slave at the same time.

Maybe you could mention a couple points to him, while starting with a compliment maybe, on how well he used to do it, maybe even recognize "hard to keep up when others hire illegals" (or something)

He'd probably appreciate that you are even paying attention, and do the little extras. Or if he hasn't raised his price for years, might be getting his "pay raise" by going faster. (I used to do that actually)

anyway ... direct friendly talk might make you both feel better about the arrangement. Sadly, the way to "get things done" is often to be the biggest asshole (squeaky wheel), but a lot of us don't want to live like that.

EMT 09/23/17 Just say No edition.

A little Saturday morning salt:

Fuck you Arizona, and all the rest of you cancy-ass, incumbent protecting at all cost voters.

How's all that sneering at principled voting and beating that drum of getting the best candidate that can "win" paying off? Got-damn but wouldn't a President "I'll complete that danged fence" McCain have been just the conservative bulwark that would turn the tide?

There has always been one simple solution to the problem. You vote for the person who best represents your values. If there are no candidates who represent enough of the values you hold dear, you should never fear abstaining.

The Left will burn itself out and eat its own, win or lose. The Right simply has to demonstrate a better alternative to their anarchy, in or out of power.

This is the 2nd time in my life I have watched the Right gain the White House and the Senate and House, and utterly waste it if one were to place any credence in their campaign promises.

You cannot beat the darkness by pretending it doesn't exist. It only gains strength when people simply pull the blinds to hide its encroachment. When those people are no longer in charge of the strings, the blinds come back up and the shadows are still there, roused again, indignant at the temporary pause, and more hungry than ever.

If a candidate is so obviously contemptuous of your values as, say John McCain whose blank and pitiless gaze ought to be a dead got-damned giveaway, you don't support his or her poisonous contempt with your vote just to keep someone else out of office.

This is the primary reason why the ratchet in this country has and still continues to turn in one direction. Republicans far too often see winning the election as a the job. So, we see professional campaigners whose singular strategy is to demonstrate "electability", and what few principles they do espouse are simply different words they tell to different people to get a vote.

Every time they come back with their hands outstretched and the threat that "this time it's the end of the world if you don't say yes," and "We promise to keep our promises and this time we we mean it, if you Just. Say. Yes.".

What has that gotten us?

How many of you really think continuing to do the same thing is going to achieve a different end than that which comes slouching towards us down that comfortable and familiar path?

Saying "NO" will set you free.


and Yes, I am angry and bitter so, Yeats.

Election officials in 21 states have been notified by the Department of Homeland Security that hackers targeted voter registration systems ahead of last year's presidential election.


In most cases, the systems were not breached. A small number of networks were compromised, but those affected were not involved in the actual tallying of votes. In most of the states, the targeting involved preparatory activity, such as scanning computer systems.


The states targeted are Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.

I did exactly that (I refused to cast a vote, and voted "none of the above") and was verbally crucified for saying I would no longer throw my vote to a candidate I didn't believe in.

As for McCain, it has been all about him since the day he use his daddy's clout to become a pilot when the instructor insisted he did not have the aptitude for such an important function in the military. McCain killed men with his incompetence behind the stick, then killed more with his signing of a false confession that better men refuse to put their names to. I won't write his sordid biography here, but he is someone deserving to be president just about as much as Hillary is. He assumed it was his turn, and now his hatred of Trump will kill the Obamacare repeal the same way Kennedy's hatred of Nixon killed the universal care bill in the 70's.

If the new Exel wasn't a Microsnot "Loaner" I would probably be glad to use it. But I am not paying a shit-ton of money for something that isn't any better than the old program. It ised to be when you bought a new computer you could elect to get that office crap for free. But no more. Gates wasn't making enough money.

That's how it should be repealed, to send the message that you shouldn't pass significant, unpopular legislation via chicanery. Then and only then can we try thru bipartisanship.

I regret my volunteering in '08 to fly from WA to FL in order to help his candidacy. I talked to a lot of GOP voters trying to GOTV. Couldn't believe how masny were so mad at W's blowing up the budget that they were going to stay home, to protest GOP unseriousness on spending.

Gee, remember when Boner and his cabal of GOPers stripped every Tea Party member from their committee assignments, back around 2012 or so? The Dems as well have always been willing to do the same, to keep members in line. McConnell couldn't herd a fart to the surface of a tub of water.

The Trump administration is drafting a new policy to quickly deport more than 150,000 child migrants from Central America who arrived alone in the U.S. illegally, creating a new class of undocumented migrants.

The Department of Justice and Homeland Security is drawing up a policy proposal in a series of memos, according to two sources with knowledge of the internal debate who spoke to the Miami Herald.

107 True enough, but what follows? I don't expect - ever - to get people who actually represent my own views, which I doubt are shared by 1% of the population. ("We are the 0.2%!"). I'll agree that McC and Flake* have gone beyond the pale.

But there are other cases. I have a friend who retired to Maine. He hates Collins, but did vote for her, as the best Maine could do, and he thought having a Senate majority was important. (Yes, he's not so sure now, but that's Kentucky's fault; the point survives. I was familiar with this point growing up in NY. During all that time, we got one (1) term of a genuinely good Senator.)

But we all know what McCain (doesn't that name mean "son of Cain"?) is, and know what to expect. As with Anthony Kennedy, we just have to cross our fingers and hope that he has exactly the correct balance of boogers in his nostrils to make him vote right for a change.

The one I don't get here is Paul. I have another friend ("You have two friends, George? I'd never have expected that.") who was deeply involved in actual campaign/primary type politics. He said that the one thing you could count on with libertarians was that they would screw you and break agreements. Always. It was just a matter of when, and on which "principle" they'd justify their betrayal. This despite the fact that he's - ideologically - pretty close to libertarian to this day. E.g., though supporting Trump, he won't budge on many issues like antitrust, immigration, or trade, AT THE LEVEL OF THEORY. He says he accepts that he's getting half a loaf, but then, that's half a loaf in hand, so he'll take it.

One biggie for me, and both the above mentioned friends is his driving the commie media to destroy themselves. Remember just a while ago that girl who was convicted for getting her crazy boyfriend to kill himself? She was a harbinger of Trump vs CNN. But what Trump is doing is perfectly legal, despite what Brianna Stelter and Ms Acosta say.

*Nice that he doesn't need a nicknamed, although "Snake" does work.

This was orchestrated between them, knowing that if McCain, having nothing to lose, said he would vote no that it would give cover to other ones like Murkowski and Miss Lindsay could shore up his shaky base by being able to say "Look how hard I tried!" while knowing all the while it was doomed to failure.

Worst case, you can always reinstall the product if you have your license key.

127 "Saying "NO" will set you free."

That's a big lesson I got last November. I didn't vote for Trump, Hillary either. If I recognized the name, I skipped them. I skipped McMuffin too. I think I voted for the Constitutional Party candidate. Not sure about that though. Certainly not Green nor Libertarian. I gave up on voting for Lindsey Graham at least two election cycles ago so it was nothing new. Trump was too much a transactional salesman for me to trust him.

Anyway, through all this BS we've been going through the past 10 months, I've been much more dispassionate in thinking about each individual, especially Trump. So far, he's done a great job IMHO but I don't have to defend him. I keep an intellectual and emotional distance from what he says that sets me free.

Sexton did say "after decades of delay by other administrations, Trump is finally confronting the monster".

Sexton ended with the part about pushing Kim Jung Un into a corner and the fate of millions depend on how he responds. But that is largely the millions in North Korea, maybe some in Seoul.

But the real power Trump is pushing is China, who has enabled this monster very directly. The other push is on people inside North Korea that might not want to be wiped out by their arrogant kid leader.

129 The opportunities of having your party control the White House and the Congress are rare, and the Democrats don't squander theirs.

The last time for the GOP was 2001-2006, when the champions of small government gave us a new Cabinet department and the largest new entitlement since Medicare.

The time before that, Eisenhower was President. (And the time before that, Hoover).

130 Perhaps your Office 365 installation did an overwrite of your xls file association. You can correct that little problem without resorting to editing the registry. Simply type "assoc" (without the quotes) into the Search Windows box that is found near the Start button. That will give you the option to choose a default app for each file type. It will take some time for all of the various file types to load, and once they are loaded you will need to scroll down that extensive list of files until you come upon your Excel file types. There are several types (file extensions change over time as program versions change) associated with Excel and you'll want to set them all, and in your case, particularly the ones such as xls, etc.

Most people that voted for Trump, imo, voted for what he was saying, even as they had doubts he would follow through. Just having the voice was enough, since most others were flipping "us" the bird on major policy. That Trump's "fans" are not just Trump sycophants seems clearer now, since they are largely not backing Trump's guy in Alabama.

As Ace says, it was a binary choice.

To me the choice for Trump was clear earlier, as Walker and even Cruz I felt showed signs they would carry water for the establishment, in the end. Cruz met his wife working deep inside the Bush regime. Heidi worked for CFR and Goldman Sachs, and the establishment jumped in with Cruz at the end of the primary.

"In the end" it may be Trump has been forced into the establishment corner to some degree. As Coulter says, it is Trump that got off the Trump (campaign) train, not her.

Trump is now talking about the transparent wall, which I presume is a fence with more than three barbed wires. But the establishment is being confronted, and maybe the tea party type patriots that McConnell and McCain hate will see a resurgence in 2018.

139 When McCain last asked voters for a job, he said he was going to repeal and replace. In fact, he wasn't just opposed, he was "leading the fight to stop Obamacare".

Is this what 'leading the fight to stop Obamacare' looks like? 'Cos it looks exactly like leading the fight to save Obamacare.

So now McCain says that if he wrote the perfect bill himself, one that would save lives and save strapped families money and unleash small businesses, he wouldn't vote for unless Democrats gave him permission?

McCain has set an impossible Goldilocks standard--not too hot, not too cold, but jussss' right! Even this modest reform is too much for Sen. No.

So let's see your bill, Senator. The one that will get 60 or 70 votes in the Senate. You say that's the only one you can support, so write it. Liar.

What a horse's ass.

I'm so sorry I ever supported him. It will never happen again. In fact, I'm leading the fight to repeal and replace John McCain.

So, why the charade of letting us "choose"?

Former agent warns the Secret Service has a troubling obsession that’s putting Trump’s life in serious danger


Ever notice that we didn't used to have loons jumping the White House fence and all of the other stuff we see almost regularly now? A new book by Dan Bongino delves into why, and he should know as he spent years on the presidential detail. Turns out the SS is more concerned with diversity in the ranks rather than competence. This leftist obsession with diversity is going to kill us all. In any organization, “diversity” (as the left means it-race and sex, certainly not ideas) can be a great thing. However, diversity is a by-product, not a goal. A good job will have people of all races, creeds and colors striving to fill it. This creates a natural diversity that can be valuable. But by setting out to be “diverse” without considering whether the people can do the actual job, all you get is chaos. Remember that if an assassin takes someone down after out running a one legged Latino lesbian midget who is providing “security” for the victim.

Teen-Adult Sex: What Every Parent Should Know

It's by Chad Felix Greene, a gay conservative who is quite open about his own teenage experiences hooking up with adult men. Not a pleasant read, but an important one.

Musical Interlude


MP.gif


How many of you have heard of Mary Prankster? If ever there was a musician that should be a Moron, it's her. A five foot nuthin', foul mouthed, tattooed, dynamo in red hightops, she was, and I mean this quite sincerely, the finest lyricist to come out of the Baltimore area since Frank Zappa. Calling her brand of music “cowpunk”, she played over 1,000 live shows in a career that spanned the decade ending in 2005.



“Tits and Whiskey” was her first big song around here, despite saying “Fuck” 13 times in the song, it received wide airplay in the Baltimore area on alternative stations.

Her catalog ran the gamut of subjects, and her songs seemed to perfectly capture the post-grunge area angst from the POV of Generation X. She wrote love songs, (Tempest);

My manner is imperious
My logic is empirical
And I'm bad at being a girlfriend
So I'm hoping for a miracle

I fear your disappointment
When I don't turn out ethereal
Though either way for me
I know it means some new material

Now don't go thinkin' that you're special
Just because you are
'Cause I'm bound to overthink it
And I always go too far

But if you think this kind of tempest
May just be your cup of tea
Then I'd like to offer you
The heart of me


Songs the highlight the troubled nihilism of a casual sex generation (Mercyfuck);


And I don't want to live anymore
And I don't want to give anymore
If I fawn, if I flirt, I just keep getting hurt
And it's taken its toll

I wish I could fuck all my sorrow away
And fuck 'til the dawn of the next fucking day
Fuck the chorus and verse, fuck the pain getting worse
Fuck it all 'til I burn


And even songs that recognize the futility of it all and the demands of adulthood (New Tricks).


Spent more years than I remember
In a club where every member
Never feels as if he quite belongs

Searching for my pleasure in
Some brand-new kind of deadly sin
My life is just as aimless as my songs

I'm gonna make it back to college
I'm gonna quit my job
I'm gonna buy the store that I'd been planning just to rob

I'm gonna teach this old dog new tricks
Drinking from the brimming cup
As soon as I wake up

Mary Prankster was obviously just a stage name, I don't know her real name, not may people do. After she hung up her Chucks, she moved to New York where, I assume, she's still active in the creative arts somehow. I'm now in my 50s, and yet I still miss gong to a smoky dive bar and watching Mary just burn the place down.

I'll leave you with “Swan Dive”. I'm happy, successful, and more confident in myself and my life than most, but this is still the best song I've ever heard for capturing that feeling that we all get sometimes, that feeling that it's all a big sham. That feeling that any second now, the fourth wall is going to pull back and we'll be standing awkward and alone on a big stage where we don't belong while the audience laughs at us.

Yeah, I'm a big fan.

20 Well, I took a willow stick to the ass, so I'll just have to repost my response to "Riker is actually just a Plot Device of Implausible Suaveness and is not actually a character qua character."

I agree. Riker was the beta male, and beyond that had no character of his own. Since it's Star Trek canon that the Kobayashi Maru is the gold test for character, let's do this.

I can imagine how Major Kira might handle it (terrorism). Same with O'Brien (blowing sh!t up with engineering). Or Picard (strategy and diplomacy), or Worf (blowing sh!t up with photon torpedos). Even Wesley (he'd probably get the instructors administering the test horribly killed).

I have no goddamn clue how Riker would approach it.

I frequent a site called stackoverflow for help with software development. It's become such a great Q&A site, that it has spawned other sites for other areas of expertise. There's a new one that has come up recently called Interpersonal Skills, which is really just a spot for SJW to ask dumb questions. I loved this questions so much I had to share it:

Just remember Piper built Space Vikings around the notion that all this easy cheap wealth which the New World provided affected Spain in an economic sense, depressing local production of wealth while rewarding brigandage.

23 I lived in Singapore for 4 years. That guy is a little dramatic.


Yes, they have some weird laws. Yes, they are tough on drug traffickers. You can even buy t-shirts there mocking their laws. But we flew in and out of Singapore dozens of times and never had one damn problem. I even had a case of chewing gum in one of my bags after a home leave. Nothing happened. I seriously doubt NO ONE ever flies into Singapore with prescription drugs.

Freakin' transporter. The more I watch episodes of Star Trek, the more the thing doesn't make sense. Basically, it kills and disintegrates you, and then re-assembles you somewhere else. Seems like black magic.

94 Weirddave, suggestion on the Windows 7 thing (and then off to bed for me) --



I had the same problem on a newly-reformatted Lenovo, what worked for me was doing only a few of the oldest updates first, then reboot. I'd do no more than 6 at a time.



Co-worker who knows his shit says the Microsoft servers that dole out the W7 patches aren't very solid, so it's a matter of luck til your computer finds a "good" one, then you're all set.

I blew 40 bucks on Feliway, at Gushie's recommendation. And, neither of them are doing particularly well and they HATE riding in the car in their cages. However, this will get done. Maybe not stylishly or well, but I will get this shit done. I honestly cannot wait until it's over. Still surprised my hair hasn't burst into flames but there's still time for that.

107 23 I lived in Singapore for 4 years. That guy is a little dramatic.


Yes, they have some weird laws. Yes, they are tough on drug traffickers. You can even buy t-shirts there mocking their laws. But we flew in and out of Singapore dozens of times and never had one damn problem. I even had a case of chewing gum in one of my bags after a home leave. Nothing happened. I seriously doubt NO ONE ever flies into Singapore with prescription drugs.

At the time of that incident my sister and I were on a cruise ship. Someone had arranged for a group of a hundred and fifty high school students to take that cruise. They were basically unsupervised.

Yup. Right between Century City/Beaverly Hills and Culver City. Those will cost you more. Plus, don't forget, the amazing electorate has recently voted to make most felonies misdemeanors, so the cops just can't be bothered. And the neighbors are increasingly disgusting.

People who have the same job & employer I have, only they live in CA? A hugely disproportionate part of their net worth is the equity in their house. That's not diversification. The employer I reference offers a cost of living adjustment, but it doesn't begin to cover the extra expense.

Wasn't there an episode where Riker and Reading Rainbow were crewing some old starship in test against the Enterprise? The old ship was a piece of junk, and totally outclassed. The ship wasn't even capable of warp, but Riker "bent" the rules to sneak aboard an experiment Weaselly was working on to allow it a brief warp jump. Even against impossibly tough odds, he wanted to win. And he did what it took to try and get an upper hand and come out victorious.

Ain't that the truth. I stayed because my hubby was a native Californian. He loves NEPA now. Change of seasons, friendly people, community. Winter can drag out but spring is worth it and fall is breathtaking.

Being from Montana, I'll admit I dislike California for a host of reasons and Texas too if the truth be told. But at least Texans don't swarm to my home state and change the culture, drive up the cost of living, and try to make the state little Texas.

Played this evening and ran into another bass player from Alabama, really nice guy who asked me if I'd be interested in doing a church gig some Sundays. I've done a grand total of one in my life and screwed it up so badly I still cringe to this day. I would up just turning down my bass gradually and faking it.

Didn't read the linked item, but it's long been a staple of not-too-worldly or bright American urban types to dump on S'pore. My favorite was a friend's sister and BIL (NYC folks), perfect examples, whining about the "police state" - um, airhead lefties from NYC, which at that time imposing limits on soda size, and cigarette sales, and gawd knows what else, under the authoritarian freak Bloomberg - all aghast at S'pore's public decency rules.

OK.

And I find it completely impossible to believe you could be executed, even arrested, in S'pore for prescription drugs for which you had the paperwork.

This question, if you ever read Jesus Huerta de Soto, was first addressed by the Salamancan school in the 16th Century, where they pretty much explained that it was inflation caused by bringing that much wealth in and spending it, and prescribed to the Spanish crown to stop spending so much. Which was never going to happen while there was money to spend.

Dr Huerta de Soto is a wonder to read, and vastly more entertaining to listen to if you speak Spanish.

I think it was the early 80s when it started to be known by that name. Certainly by the time I went through basic in '86.

The classic woobie is great, but the Kifaru version is to die for. After a little research, I broke out the sewing machine and made a copy of the Kifaru woobie using similar continuous filament insulation. It's rough, but awesome.

245 Contrary to what's posted way up above, lots of people retiring in CA (and moving there to do it). Typically of means, of course. Some of the nicest, least crowded areas of SoCal have been rendered much less so the last few decades, with retirees making up much of the increase.

And "CA" or "SoCal" are pretty meaningless, as far as "live-ability" designators - lots of variation, by specific location. Visiting for limited time is great, lots to enjoy on visits, but my whole life you could not pay me to live in the LA area (defined as, now, from Irvine to Thousand Oaks, the beach to Riverside). Outside those lines, still some nice places. All depends on your interests. If those rarely lie beyond your front door, then anywhere will do.

252 hat is generally what makes a man, or boy at the time, gay...

Ehhh, maybe. Anyone who thinks orientation is all nature or all nurture is frankly looking for simple answers to complex questions. As with everything, the facts are composed of a multitude of individual experiences, all of which have different influence on who or what a person is.

Are some people gay because of gay sex during the years when their sexuality was being formed? Undoubtedly.

Are some people gay just because they are? Undoubtedly.

Are there a billion incremental points between the two? Undoubtedly.

253 Mom wore out her bed-jacket so I bought her a medium Liner, Extreme cold weather, Parka, and lopped the sleeves down, and my sister put scarlet frogging up the front to keep it closed.

Mom was fond of that thing but I suspect she would have liked it in a different color.

I had success with both w7 and w8 by doing the incremental upgrade approach. Looked at the dates of the updates and only selected a few of the oldest on each pass. Cross checked the results against the installation list and tried to figure out what patch was missing if something didn't install. Usually, it seemed that by just selecting the item that failed to install and doing another install pass would clear things up.

It did take hours though because nothing had been updated for a year or more.

The more time that has passed, the more I hate nu-Trek. I was bothered by how they handled the reboot - washing everything else away. The characters don't act *in* character, except maybe for McCoy. Kirk is a spoiled child. The sets were terrible - engineering should look like a spaceship, not an oil refinery. There is just no real sense that this is Star Trek, it has a different tone and scope.

They mined WoK for plot points for *two* movies, and executed them cheaply, and the KM test was just one of them. I have become sufficiently disgusted that I avoided the latest movie and have no desire to see it or any new ones in the future.

325 The more time that has passed, the more I hate nu-Trek. I was bothered
by how they handled the reboot - washing everything else away. The
characters don't act *in* character, except maybe for McCoy. Kirk is a
spoiled child. The sets were terrible - engineering should look like a
spaceship, not an oil refinery. There is just no real sense that this is
Star Trek, it has a different tone and scope.


Exactly. The new movies aren't bad....but they aren't STAR TREK, IYKWIM.

327 The most recent one was better. The characters felt more real (note I do not say they felt more like Kirk or Spock.) The story did not feel like a complete rip off of older Trek stories.

329 Point of Order. Tom Paris was a Lieutenant. During the show he was demoted to Ensign for something he did but I don't think it lasted all that long and he was again back to Lt. well before the series ended.
Posted by: buzzzion at September 23, 2017 12:20 AM (cAnNx)

I can't remember if he got reinstated, he was a JG anyway, so still lower than Bashir.

That was one of my problems with that show - nobody got promoted, other than Paris - demoted, changed jobs, hooked up long term, or otherwise showed any real character growth over the series run. Except maybe for the doctor. 7 of 9 had a lot of growth quickly as a plot point, but once she got where Brannon Braga wanted, all stop.

334 No longer are adults supposed to be adults, because if you had any kind of perspicacity and compassion you would think "This is a teen; Their brain isn't fully developed and they need to be needed and loved. Am I really going to get my jollies off by doing sex acts with them when they are so vulnerable when probably having that happen to me screwed the hell out of me in me young life?" I am not going to get into a debate about whether sexual orientation is innate or learned-maybe it depends on the people involved-but I have known too many gay guys who have said that as kids told me they were preyed upon by adults. And JFTR, I have the same amount of loathing for women teachers in their 20's and 30's having sex with their high school male students-or female for that matter. Narcissists destroy so many people-which is what it is, in large part when you use people simply for your own satisfaction and cease to think of them as individuals you need to cherish and love. Yes, that is a spiritual problem

And Milo himself is more of a so-con than most GOPers---very much against 3rd-wave feminism, quite pro-life, and deeply respectful of orthodox Christianity.

In any case, I'm not aware of a cabal of so-cons and leftists "working together" to bring him down.

360 Milo basically revealed the same sort of gay goings on, since he experienced it as a youth, and was reviled for it as he seems to endorse the adult-minor practice. But Breitbart still has a soft spot in their hearts for him, and give him favorable press.

I've never had paid for sex, unless a movie and dinner counts. It's left me with lots more beer money though. This doesn't mean, however, that I've led a sheltered life. I've talked to a number of hos and even inquired a time or three what the going rate is. Curiosity, not a serious contemplation.

382 Thoughtful Article

Teen-Adult Sex: What Every Parent Should Know

It's by Chad Felix Greene, a gay conservative who is quite open about his own teenage experiences hooking up with adult men. Not a pleasant read, but an important one.


Many years ago I had a learning experience that shattered my previously PC view of gay sexuality:

I once had a book published by a big publishing house, and the editor there who guided it from manuscript to finished book eventually became a friend of mine -- not a super-close friend, but a "good friend"-level friend. H was a gay guy, around 40 years old, who was very artistic and "sensitive" and mousy. He only like classical music -- hated rock, pop and jazz -- ballet, opera and gregorian chants. He was also single, sad and lonely because he had a weird romantic preference for aristocratic old men -- he drooled over Alastair Cooke -- but there were no aristocratic old gay men where he lived, so he was always alone.

I thought he was a rare breed: An asexual, celibate gay man. He always bemoaned being isolated and lonely and without relationships.

But then one day he DID meet an older aristocratic gay man, and for a few months they were boyfriend-and-boyfriend.

But it didn't last long. One day we had lunch, and he cried and told me that his new boyfriend had become unreasonable and that they had broken up. I asked in what way he had become unreasonable. The reply?

"He said that if we were going to remain together as a couple, then he insisted that I stop going to bathhouses. That's an absurd demand!"

I admit that I was left speechless for a moment. Wait, what? You go to bathhouses? You???

He then revealed that OF COURSE he goes to bathhouses several times a week, that he had always had done so -- that's a given, and automatic with most gay men. All that stuff about being lonely and celibate -- he was referring to being lonely and celibate when it comes to emotion-based romantic relationships. OF COURSE he needed to get his rocks off and drain his balls five or ten times a week in anonymous sexual encounters with strangers. But that didn't "count." That was just biological.

This friend of mine up until that point had been a sort of iconic stereotype in my mind: See, not all gay men have frequent anonymous sex. Some can be delicate, sensitive romantic near-virgins.

Ooops. Stereotype shattered.

All I was left with after that was the standard stereotype. Oh well. I guess stereotypes evolve for a reason.

Socons seemed to like Milo. He said he was warmly welcomed in the South. He did an interview with one of the Duck Dynasty guys and was respectful of the man's beliefs and got respect in return. He is not a proponent of gay marriage and backed the rights of Christians to refuse to bake cakes for gay weddings.

It wasn't the Socons who brought him down, it was GOPe types who hated his support for Trump. Once again ,they were happy to ally themselves with leftists to bring down a threat to their Establishment.

I was once friends with a gay man like the one you described. A shy retiring man who loved books and art and stuck me as extremely cultured. I worked in his bookstore occasionally. I felt bad for him. He seemed lonely.

One day, I overheard him chatting about going to Union Station to have sex with guys in the men's room there and also about the "P street beach" in DC, a notorious gay pickup spot He and his gay friend were bragging about how often they had sex in those spots during the past month - dozens of times. Then he noticed I was standing there and gave a panicked "Shut up" look to his friend.

It really wrecked the image I had had of him.

386 I grew up in the suburbs in the 70s and as a teen was ultra naive. Got a job as a cashier through a buddy's family at a grocery store close to downtown. The shit that I saw when we went out to retrieve stolen carts floored me. I didn't know it before taking the job but where this store was located was was a gay hotspot in the city. I was young 17 and saw way younger boys essentially hooking in the neighborhood. Now I'm not John Kerry but that shit was seared into my memory.

391 If a pound of dollars is worth approx. $450, then to carry the same dollar amount in kwacha you would need to lug around about 5000 pounds of kwacha. That is assuming that a kwacha weighs approx. 1 gram also. Don't do bank robbery in Zambia. Malawi kwacha is a much better bet, but it would still be, literally, a ton of work carrying the money away.

402 to do the apple sauce and/or mustard paste like i brainstormed/farted last night, i'd do what i do with horseradish for my prime rib paste: dump an amount of the moisture rich material into a fine mesh strainer, over a larger bowl, then bounce the contents over it, causing the excess liquid to remove itself.

then take the drained solid material and mix in the other ingredients, then apply finished product to the meat in question. i've never reserved the horseradish liquid in the past, but that oversight will be corrected going forward.

as for misting the meat with cider, what have you, there's two schools of thought on that, and some debate as to it's efficacy.

for one thing, you have to open the cooking chamber to do it, and, as they say "if you're lookin' you ain't cookin'..." every time you do that, you deviate from your desired cook temp, and a stable temp for long periods is a BIG help to turning out good Q. it's the long, slow, steady temp progression that causes the meat to self-tenderize, especially with brisket.

the best thing about experimenting with Q is that, unless you REALLY screw up, disposing of the test materials is fun. just take copious notes: relying on memories isn't reliable.

408 Apparently Trump all but admitted it was a mistake to endorse Strange at Strange's rally tonight. "Maybe I made a mistake, but loyalty" or something along those lines. So basically he thinks Strange is toast but he's not going to ditch him just to be a fair weather endorser.

So I'm just left wondering who thought it was good to endorse him in the first place and why? Did Trump decide himself thinking it would be a good way to show the GOPe that he's willing to do business with them so they should be willing to return the favor. Or was it one of his underlings that convinced him this would be the good way to get those assholes in the senate on his side?

Open Thread (with Lots of Content) & GAINZZZ Thread

I figure the thing that's best here is the Making of Red Dawn (the original) featurette, also embedded below, but linked here in case you can't see it below.

Other stuff:

She seems nice.

In Australia, there's a controversy over the Australian Football League putting out a statement that it, as a corporation, supports same sex marriage. The question is, as it is here: Who the hell are these people to tell ticket-buying fans what they ought to think about a political issue?

Shock: CNN is barely covering the Menendez trial on the actual channel (though there is some scattered coverage on its doesn't-even-matter website), and the networks have almost entirely suppressed the story.

Why aren't the media and other leftist propaganda organs actually covering Valerie Plame's antisemitism? They covered the shit out of, say, Steve Bannon's alleged antisemitism, but for some reason have decided that the proven and longstanding antisemitism of a former CIA officer making decisions about Middle East policy, and influencing US opinion, just aren't worth much exploration, for some reason.

Here's the second-most obvious answer, apart from simple tribal allegiance and partisan bias: Because antisemitism has been thoroughly mainstreamed on the political left, far more that it has been on the right.

Go figure: Leftists decree that having a child is the worst possible decision you could make, both for yourself and The Planet.

Amusingly, here's the related story this bullshit site suggests you might also be interested in:


More: Why Greece needs to start having babies again soon or face financial oblivion

But ignore that. For the Anti-Human Left, the Human Voluntary Self-Extinction Project outweighs all other concerns.

They really are Agent Smith -- they really do want an end to the human race.

I meant to link this earlier, but John Sexton has written it up for us: Leaked emails show the full madness at Evergreen State College, with lots of professors complaining they are being threatened, harassed, and stalked by "Social Justice" Warriors. All of whom were permitted to take over the campus, vigilante style, by the administration, with cops ordered to stand down.

And then crazed lunatics had a free hand to impose their own weird "justice" on the Filthy Normals.

Oh, and speaking of college madness, you might enjoy Hilary Clinton Absolver James Comey being disrupted at a (planned) college address for 16 minutes.

Oh, and Jimmy Kimmel, who cheerled John McCain in his latest betrayal and lies, of course got coached up on his Obamacare talking points by Chuck Schumer.

Below, that Red Dawn making-of featurette, and then a short GAINZZZ entry.


What Have You Done to Make the World a GAINZZZier Place Today?

On my front, I've been getting wiped out by too few rest days. Plus, trying to run a low-carb caloric deficit (I think; I don't count calories) while doing so.

So I've started eating more, and eating some carbs, hoping that I'll at least have the energy to do the workouts I'm trying to do.

I don't know if that'll work. I should start taking more Glutamine (which supposedly aids recovery), but I haven't started that yet.

On the GAINZZZ front, eating more, and eating more carbs, has resulted in... well, I do have lifting GAINZZZ, but I'm also putting on fat-weight too. Not a lot, but I'm not seeing any LOZEZZZ.

I've repeatedly read (or heard) it's impossible to try to both gain and lose weight at the same time -- which I realize looks pretty obvious -- and that you have to choose one or the other, and I think I'm finding out that's about right.

I might have to try something like "eat more six days a week, but then fast one day." That's what I'm doing today.

Coincidentally -- I forgot about this guy until today -- this guy suggests doing something like that, which he calls the "Snake Diet" (because you eat a lot, then you don't eat for days) and recommends drinking an electrolyte-rich drink he calls "Snake Juice." Basically, he suggests One Meal a Day plus the weekly 48 hour fast, or some fuckin' shit like that.

He begins every video with the greeting, "HEY FATTIE!," I guess as a motivational tool, which.. well, it kinda works, I guess. Starting off a video "HEY FATTIE!!!" really doesn't sugar-coat it much.

Now, to be honest, I'm not sure that I trust this guy's advice -- though I've done a lot of the stuff he suggests -- but I do find him amusing:

I found this guy when I was searching for the right proportions of electrolytes to water, after my own bouts of deydration.

i'm not endorsing this at all. Just saying, hey, he's... well, he's different, that's for sure.

If you want to know his recipe for an electroylte-replenishing concoction, well then, HEY FATTIE!!!, here's his fuckin' recipe for Snake Fuckin' Juice.

Here's a fuckin' testimonial by a FATTIE who failed his FUCKIN' SNAKE DIET because her fuckin' hormones were ALL FUCKED UP AND SHIT!!!

If you want to yelled at some fuckin' more, here:

By the way, I really, really, really would caution anyone from following his advice on dry fasting -- that is, fasting and also not drinking water.

You need more water when you fast, not less.

I like the idea of his Only Eat Bacon For 30 Days Challenge (and only eat it in that one meal a day 2 hour eating window), and I might try a bacon and eggs only sort of one meal a day challenge, but not dry, as he suggests.

I collapsed from dehydration, and had bad dehydration effects (averted from drinking a lot of water) another time. I'd really go nowhere near the dry fast.

14 I've heard that if pick any food and only eat that food for thirty days, you'll lose weight, because you'll get bored with it. Of course, as with any diet, it requires a lot of self-control. And probably not a long-term maintenance diet.

27 Oh cool, I've been saving some gainzz advice for a gainzz thread where ace hadn't almost killed himself lately.

There are two insights that came together for this.

1) I now weigh myself first thing upon waking and evacuating, as I find that I lose about 3 pounds in my sleep. So, sleep is good for weight loss.

B) I was fishing in the tailwater of a bottom-release dam recently. If water spills over the top of a dam it's warmed by the sun and is only good for growing useless fish like bass and crappie. It it's bottom release, you get consistent cold clear trout water year-round.

Yay.

So I was standing in my nice cold trout water until I was tying knots by sight and memory because I couldn't feel my fingers any more and it hit me:

Calories are by definition a measure of heat. So, exposure to icy trout water must consume calories as it sucks out heat.

Ergo: Ace should sleep in a sensory-deprivation ice-water bath.

Massive gainzz and the risk of near death experiences. What could be more ewokian?

50 Or here's a bit of wisdom from Dr. John Beradi, 'Precision Nutrition'....


'I know, everyone wants to talk about the food itself
- the proteins, carbs, and fats. What to eat more of and what to avoid.

But research is now showing that simply paying better attention to what you eat is a key factor in whether you'll lose fat, get lean, and improve your health.

Whether your attention is trained on avoiding carbs, eating more vegetables, seeking out organic / free-range food, avoiding animal foods, or avoiding "non Paleo" food, it's all good.

Because what you focus on may not matter as much as simply caring more about what you're eating in the first place."

No, they don't have that much time and also, kids are expensive to the State.

67 Ok thsi may be something. I'm on keto Mostly I eat chicken thighs for dinner with olive oil, eggs with cheese and butter, Cawfee with a mix of heavy cream and 1/2 1/2, cheese, carb would be Melba toast which I love. Walnuts and almonds, the occasional protein shake if I'm lazy for breakfast. No fruit or veggies because plants are people too you monsters.

that's pretty much it. I'm not super hungry. lost ten + pounds. No real exercise hard cause I tore my rotator cuff. I would like to lose more but stuck.

One thing to make it easy. I throw a family pack of thighs skin on in the electric pressure cooker with two cups of water. 15 minutes. tender.

Bonus: I beat a half dozen eggs and pour them into the hot broth and scramble with a fork. Instant eggs drop soup. I eat that for lunch for a few days. Delish.

Right now the plan is Monday and Thursday is bench and rows, Tuesday and Friday are squats and overhead presses, and Wednesday is for deadlifts and intervals on the tredmill. Also, I can go on Thursday nights to an evening swing dancing class, and on Wednesday nights to tango classes.

96 The Ponzi scheme depends on more people at the bottom paying in to funnel to people at the top. The problem is the more that base gets squeezed it becomes less financially feasible for them to add to that base through reproduction. Also, as the government continues to strangle the economy, those people at the base don't have anything to pay up to the people at the top, and in fact start having to drain some off from the people at the top. At that point your pyramid is falling apart.

Except that's really not true. All diets are not equal.

The reality is, if you are depriving yourself of SOMETHING, it's not sustainable. You WILL bounce back from it.

The ONLY reasonable diet is moderation and variety. Don't pig out, don't eat crap, and don't follow idiot faddish ideas that are bad for you.

It astonishes me how complicated people make this. It's not complicated. Feed your body the nutrients it needs. And knock off buying shit from snake oil salesmen.

114 I haz some gainz! I did a 14 day ab challenge which included a 24 minute HIIT workout in conjunction with a proprietary "Ab Blaster" workout that you did every day Mon-Fri, then just a run, walk or whatever workout you usually do on the weekend. I still ran on some of the weekdays because I'm training for a marathon in Oct. I didn't do any before measurements because I really didn't think you could change your body much in just 2 weeks. My main goal was to just get some core strength to help me improve my running form. I didn't even do the nutrition part because I wasn't trying to los weight. Well, I lost 4 lbs. and inches everywhere! Lost my little muffin too and my love handles, and my stomach is flat! I did my last long run last Saturday. I maintained not only my form but my foot turnover on a 23.1 mile run! (Which I ran at an average pace of 8:59 minutes/mike. These HITT workouts are legit! It was not a PR for me on that course (but I'm years older than when I ran my fastest time there). It was the best I felt ever doing that run, and I felt fine the next day. (Apple cider vinegar helps too). I smoked hubby (which is always fun, AND I felt great! I'm a believer in HIIT now! I believe!

143 The ONLY reasonable diet is moderation and variety. Don't pig out, don't eat crap, and don't follow idiot faddish ideas that are bad for you.

It astonishes me how complicated people make this. It's not complicated. Feed your body the nutrients it needs. And knock off buying shit from snake oil salesmen.
Posted by: BurtTC at September 22, 2017 08:38 PM (Pz4pT)


There's a huge genetic factor in what kind of diet is best for individuals . . .

My wife is of (largely) southern European heritage; she can eat carbs all day long and not gain weight.

If I (mainly northern European) would eat the way she eats, I would guraranteed gain weight . . . LOTS of weight. I can't tolerate too many carbs. She can.

All diets are not equal, because all people are not equal.

Advocating moderation without recognizing the individual, genetic element is, to be blunt, an evil, cruel lie.

Find out what your body reacts to, positively and negatively, and eat accordingly.

There isn't One True Diet That All Should Follow. More's the pity.

Posted by: Insomniac at September 22, 2017 08:43 PM (NWiLs)


A proper forge has a bellows that can easily be operated by the same person that is doing the metal work. The trick is the bellows does not need to be in continuous operation, just a few pulls on the bellows fires up the coals then you work the metal for a few minutes, repeat!

"Diet gurus are in this game to get attention, make a scene, and get on TV. That's why they try to force people into following strict and largely unnecessary nutrition rules - demonizing some foods, deifying others.

Sure it sells books. It gives good TV. But we all know how things turn out when real people try to follow these rules in real life."

No, it's not. It really isn't. There may be some minor variation, but generally people all need the same nutrients, and do NOT need the crap that everyone knows is crap.

The truth is, nobody really knows what anyone else eats. We think there are people who can eat all the [fill in the blank] they want, and be healthy as a horse.

They don't eat as much as people think they do.

Anybody consuming 3000 calories a day (assuming they are not world class athletes), with a large percentage of them being carbs, is going to be big as a house.

I decided to give it a try as I did not want surgery. For about the first month or so, I couldn't even grab the grips. By spring, I was using the equipment like a normal person and putting on my own coat. You'd be surprised how good it feels to be able to put on your own dang coat.

I thought we were talking about "moderation."

"Moderation" varies widely depending on genetics. Carb tolerance varies widely depending on genetics (and to some extent on previous life history).

"Moderation" means wildly different things to different people. Some people can tolerate 200 g carbs, some 20. What level of carb consumption then is "moderate"? Answer: It depends on the individual.

"Moderation" is only helpful around the edges in weight loss and healthy eating. It isn't a sliver bullet.

for most, yeah. Most people have a psychological barrier against it, and think it's a lot harder that it is, and that it's a lot more dangerous than it is (and so will begin telling themselves they have to eat).

until I got used to doing 16 hour fasts the idea of going a full day or 36 hours without eating seemed impossible.

I thought we were talking about "moderation."

"Moderation" varies widely depending on genetics. Carb tolerance varies widely depending on genetics (and to some extent on previous life history).

"Moderation" means wildly different things to different people. Some people can tolerate 200 g carbs, some 20. What level of carb consumption then is "moderate"? Answer: It depends on the individual.

"Moderation" is only helpful around the edges in weight loss and healthy eating. It isn't a sliver bullet.

There ARE no silver bullets.
Posted by: filbert at September 22, 2017 09:01 PM (s5o+q)


Right. I read "eats carbs all day" as something other than moderation.

Someone who likes bread and pasta and whatnot, that's fine, and yes, genetics might be a factor in how MUCH one can reasonably consume and call it moderation, but the person who eats carbs "all day" is not practicing moderation.

Nope (in part).

There are studies showing that increasing exercise doesn't necessarily result in weight loss . . . in fact in certain individuals it will result in an increase in caloric consumption.

But yes, the only long-term way is to (after finding out what you can and can't tolerate, food-wise) to re-build your life habits to conform to what your body can tolerate.

This is an incredibly hard thing to actually do.

There are essential fatty acids and amino acids, which means fat and protein (that contain those constituents) are required.

There is no such thing as essential carbs. You can live off fat and protein (but not too much of the latter). You'll go into ketosis, of course, but you can live without any carbs.

Now, plants have fats and proteins into them as well, of course, but you've got to get the essential fatty acids and amino acids.

And that's where "balance" comes in. The proteins and fats in some foods don't have all the essential ones in them.

290 >>>Well, I have to admit that if I'm suffering hunger pangs I'm going to have difficulty sleeping which may have an effect on my job performance. I haven't tried to stretch a weekday fast beyond that for obvious reasons. Sleep is imperative in my situation.

i hear ya, but the pangs do pass. Right now (at about hour 24 of a fast) I'm hungry from time to time. In my experience it does not interfere with sleep, though.

What I found was that I had gotten used to using late night eating as a way to help fall asleep (cheese tended to make me sleepy), and stopping that habit did make me have trouble sleeping, just because i'd made it a habit.

But once that habit was kicked, fasting didn't interfere with sleep.

Even thin people are carrying 30,000 spare calories on their frames. Fat people are carrying 100,000 or 200,000. Very fat people carry 500,000.

It's not like people do not have the energy stored on their bodies. And the body will start burning it, eventually.

Tom Brady is getting criticized over his remarks about water intake.

I am living proof that it's okay to drink less than 50 ounces of water a day.

I used to drink lots of water because I was told to do it. All it did was make me pee. I would drink 16 ounces of water, and a half hour later I'd pee 16 ounces of pee.

My body was telling me I was hydrated enough already.

I eat a lot of fruit. Mostly berries. To be honest with you, I basically don't think about the amounts or percentages of anything. I don't count calories. I don't worry about any of it.

I'm healthier than almost everybody.

Seriously. Maybe it is good genes, I don't know. But most of my calories I get from fruits, veggies, nuts and beans. About once a week I'll have some meat. Essentially no dairy.

I exercise regularly, but I'm not a fanatic. I don't know what else to say. I believe people overthink all this stuff, and it makes no sense to me.

326 >>>
The fast plan I heard our friend Kimmel used to lose his weight allowed for up to 500 calories consumed on the fast days. I forgot the plan name. Heard him a awhile back on Stern.

a lot of plans are like that. This is called the "fasting-simulating diet." The idea is that if you have a low enough number of calories on "fasting" days, 600 for men, 500 for women, you're effectively fasting (though not actually fasting).

many of the fasting plans -- like Fast Five (fast for five days), 5:2 (eat for five days, fast for 2) or alternate day fasting permit that kind of low level of calorie intake on "fasting" days.

i've done that sort of thing as well as genuine fasts. Some will find that, as Lewis Sinclair said, eating small amounts of food will stimulate the appetite rather than satisfying it, so that the real honest fast turns out easier.

For me it's six of one half a dozen of the other. I do think that maybe the Bone Broth fast is a good idea, just to make sure you're getting some electrolytes in your body (which you shed when you fast or lose weight due to any means).

335 The only guns I've had pointed at me were by "our" guys (at checkpoints), mostly anyway. I actually loved the .50 cal in the sandbag bunker at one key entrance. Gave me a warm feeling.

In the wild east in the 90s, various things were pointed at me and others in various situations, also mostly at checkpoints, but in those cases there was always the exciting possibility of alcohol and dumbassery causing something to go wrong. Though the driving was the scariest part of those places, and that excludes the mines and bandits, which were issues in some cases.
