It was Terrible, Except…

67. Bad Scenes Good Movies 01.jpg


I've stopped watching a movie part of the way through once. It was Sicko, the Michael Moore documentary about healthcare. It infuriated me to no end, not because it was an apologia for Cuban healthcare, but because it's manipulative technique was so obvious and forced that I just couldn't take it anymore. He'd start making a point with numbers, and then cut away to some sob story about a family who couldn't afford insurance. I found the technique itself infuriating, so I just stopped it (I paid no money to watch it, by the way).

However, with that said, I watch every new movie all the way through whether I love it or hate it. I don't need to explain the love it part, but why do I subject myself to a film if, through the opening minutes, I decide that it's garbage?

There are really two reasons. The first is that I always hold out hope that the movie will redeem itself. That it will build to some great ending that makes all of the mistakes over the previous 90 minutes or so completely worthwhile (this oh so rarely happens). The second is that even bad movies can have good elements.

You know what I'm talking about. That one scene or performance or design element that grabs you despite the awfulness of everything else around it. Yes, the movie as a whole is awful, except did you see that one part near the end?


Star Trek V: The Final Frontier

67. Bad Scenes Good Movies 02.jpg

I've defended both The Motion Picture and The Search for Spock as misunderstood good movies, but that does not extend to William Shatner's directorial effort. The Final Frontier is bad. The story makes no sense (borrowing a plot line from The Animated Series of all places), with completely needless retconning, a total misuse of some beloved characters, and mostly questionable performances.

With that being said, there are three things in this movie that I genuinely and totally love.

First is the opening scene:

This does not feel like the start of a Star Trek movie. The slow motion, the desolation, and the color palate seem so off from what we expect from the series. And yet, as almost a short film unto itself, I love the feel of it. I buy the digger's isolation and desperation (and casting, he's got a great face). The weird and unexplained way that this new entity (Sybok) brings peace. It's really quick nice. The movie that follows doesn't really do anything good with it, though.

The second and third actually happen at once, but I consider them separate elements. The second would be McCoy's scene where he faces his pain.

I don't think I've seen DeForest Kelley give a better performance than in that scene where he has to relive the euthanization of his father. I don't know what Shatner said to him to get that performance, but it worked. Go back to the beginning of that clip to see the third thing that I absolutely love about The Final Frontier. You have to watch the whole thing, but pay attention to what goes on outside of the window. It's a surprisingly subtle effect that draws absolutely no attention to itself whatsoever, but the cluster of stars just gets steadily bigger as the scene draws on. It took me years to notice that (granted, I've only seen the movie all the way through perhaps twice), but once I did see it, I was a bit amazed. Through all of the cutting back and forth, and the fact that the effect was captured in camera with projection on a screen in the background as opposed to any sort of post-production compositing, it still just grows larger with every shot. There's a command in the handling of that effect that is absent in almost everything else in the film. It's obvious to me that a lot of thought went into that effect, and it pays off in its own way. I just wish the rest of the movie had that much thought.


Alexander

67. Bad Scenes Good Movies 03.jpg

Oliver Stone's foray into historical epic filmmaking on the heels of Gladiator and in the same year as Troy is…not good.

I actually saw this in theaters. I was excited. Oliver Stone is not a bad filmmaker, and the movie looks quite good, something that came through in the trailers very easily. However, no two actors seem to be performing like they are in the same movie. Colin Farrell looks like he's in a soap opera and Angelina Jolie acts like she's a monster in a horror movie. I think Val Kilmer gives the only good and grounded performance as Philip, Alexander's father. Even Anthony Hopkins seems to be half asleep as Ptolemy.

However, as implied by the movie's inclusion on this list, I do feel that the sequence that dramatizes the Battle of Gaugamela is quite well shot and assembled. The only clips I can find online are pixelated to all hell, so this will have to do:

There's a grand sweep to the sequence there that's missing from a lot of the mess of the movie. I genuinely find it quite engaging to watch on its own, separate from the rest of the film. But seriously, though, Val Kilmer is actually pretty good in his limited role.


The Lone Ranger

67. Bad Scenes Good Movies 04.jpg

Have you seen this movie?

Did you fall asleep during it? I almost did. Almost.

This was Disney making one of the largest miscalculations of the last twenty years, and it happened at about the same time that it also dropped the egg that was John Carter (addendum: that movie is awesome. Don't hate.). It was wildly expensive (actually less expensive than originally intended), had a huge star at the height of his power (Depp), was supposed to launch Armie Hammer to stardom, and was directed by the man who had brought Pirates of the Caribbean to the screen, Gore Verbinski. It was the kind of sure bet that Hollywood is always desperate for and further proof of William Goldman's adage, "Nobody knows anything. Not one person in the entire motion picture field knows for a certainty what's going to work."

The move as a whole is largely self-serious and boring. It doesn't engage as it tries to build this weird mystique about itself that never settles while also using the US Army as bad guys in a super dense plot that made William Turner say, "Wow…that's overly complicated."

However, that being said, the final train fight and chase sequence is one of the most fun big budget sequences over the last couple of decades. It's the first time the familiar theme comes into the film. The action is big, brash, bold, and wildly inventive. Here's the opening to that sequence:

I don't own this movie because Disney has a very tight handle on the primary market for its films which keeps the price of its films high, but if I saw a copy for $5 or less, I'd pick it up just for that final sequence.


I'm not the only one here

Are there movies that you generally dislike but contain individual sequences or elements that you overall enjoy? I've listed a few up above, but mine isn't the only voice that matters.

5 I completely forget to mention The Black Dahlia.

The scene where they find the girl's body is great, and there's a sequence near the end that involves a staircase and a death that is classic de Palma in the best way.

What OM said. The remake was... unnecessary. The original with Matthau was fantastic. Plus, though it was uncredited, NY in the 70's can be very interesting to watch and the original had all that.

"Rarely" is an overstatement. I doubt you could even cite one instance of it. But you hold out hope, anyway. It's cute, really.

The second is that even bad movies can have good elements.

Sure. Pretty much anything can have good elements. That's still not a reason to suffer through it.

26 Taking of Pelham 123 book was fun, and the first movie was at least watchable. The newer version, however, did not betray any awareness that the original book was completely unaware. Can't tie metanarratives to this extremely thin unpretentious story. Kind of reminds me of the remake of "Miracle on 34th Street." As soon as you try to take the narrative too seriously, it falls apart.

If you cut them some slack for making a SC-FI film based on what folks in the early 20th century (or maybe late 19th century?) thought was sci-fi, it kinda works. I like it too.

30 Never walked out on a movie, because I need to be damn sure I want to see it before I go.

Was pretty friggin' close with the Last Jedi, though. I didn't even want to see it. My brother and my sons basically dragged me to it.

Lord I hate that movie.

31 I give the new Jurassic movie a 'meh.'

Too much is recycled in my opinion, both in plot and shots. They keep casting a great hunter and each is terrible. Only the Aussie in the first movie is remarkable and memorable.

Jeff Goldblum gets another paycheck out of this.

The only payoff moments come with Owen and Blue. She still considers Owen a friend but knows he can't protect her as he promises. The other humans have shown her betrayal. So she runs off into the darkness.

Stumbled into the local theater to see that one with a friend after, oh, maybe 6 or 7 TALL Budweisers in the cozy old Thunderbird. We were both big "B" movie fans and thought it might be fun. You know, like Robbie the Robot and "Curse of the Demon." Literally do not remember a thing about it. Might have walked out if I was conscious of what was going on.

I had wanted to go see the movie "Hostiles" when it came out, because I thought "Hey, U.S. Cavalry, frontier war, sounds great." Well, I didn't make it to the theater, but I streamed it when it came out. Made me glad I didn't waste more money seeing it in the theater.

The best thing, or things I should say, about the Doors was Kathleen Quinlan's bustline which was spectacular.

71 I feel a compulsion to watch a movie I've chosen all the way to the end, even sitting there watching the final credits. There've been very few exceptions, even for stuff that's terrible.

I walked out on one movie in a theater--"The Gambler" staring James Caan. I understand addiction now, but at the time I did not. And the film failed to convey the absolute hold that addiction has over a person.
When I tried to watch it, it just didn't make any sense. Caan's character kept making such utterly stupid choices--despite absolutely knowing the danger he was putting himself in--that I just couldn't take what I thought was stupidity.
Well, it is stupidity. The film failed to make the compulsion real to the audience.
I've sent some films back to Netflix (back when I could afford a subscription) when they were only half (or less) watched. "Bad Lieutenant"--I really don't have time these days for vile people doing vile things. "Punch Drunk Love"--I got about 30 minutes into this "masterpiece" before deciding it was a senseless valentine to senselessness. And I've avoided Paul Thomas Anderson ever since. (At least Paul W.S. Anderson manages to be stupidly entertaining.) "The Last of Sheila"--I found it impossible to care about any of the characters.
And there I stand.

I saw it in the theatre. Didn't really match the book, but it was so much fun that I bought it on DVD. Tried to lend it to one of my brothers, but he heard it was bad. Then he caught the tail end of it oin his travels and asked to borrow it.

Too bad Disney crapped on its marketing. It was better than the recent SW movies.

I liked Backdraft, too, especially the cut scenes. There's a future post for TJM: cut scenes good and cut scenes bad. The cut scenes from SW: Attack of the Clones actually gave a better sense of why the princess and the Jedi would have a relationship.

80 JOHN CARTER was good, not great. The issue is that it's certainly no worse than the Star Trek reboot that too many slobbered over yet it bombed with the critics and was basically abandoned by the studio.

JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM gets points for continuing the idea that the dinosaurs are just examples of the destructive power of genetic engineering but loses most of them for a story that gets progressively stupider as it goes along.

I've got a love-hate relationship with those books - the first is great, but as they get grander over the second and third they lose their heart, and the ending is THE OPPOSITE OF UPLIFTING. Which is what comes of attempting to write an epic trilogy denouncing the concept of a loving God.

A young Harrison Ford would have been the guy to play the character back in the day. (OT: Leading men need distinctive features. Perfect looking doesn't do it.)

Next they needed to scale back the film. Twenty years ago the film would have been a hit. Today, it was just another big CGI fest. It needed a tighter story with less CGI.

Finally, I don't think they ever had confidence in the material and it shows.

135 In answer to TJM's query, I generally very much disliked "Gods and Generals," but not for the reason the "professional critics" disliked it.

They objected to the humanizing of Confederates as opposed to portraying them as mere violent psychopaths who only took breaks from beating slaves long enough to go stomp on kittens.

I, on the other hand, couldn't stand the tedious melodrama and Robert Duvall's drawl. But, I did enjoy the attention to detail regarding sets, costumes, etc. as well as the cinematography--particularly during one of the final scenes depicting armies charging through the forest.

140 That clip on Gaugamela is entertaining filming, but also shows that Stone did not understand Alexander's military genius even one tiny bit. Few do. It shows Alexander planning the moves carefully, detailing the trap he would set - and yet that wasn't how a daring innovator like Alexander thinks and works at all. Alexander knew that he had the best people at their positions, and he knew they would hold their own. Then, as the two forces at Gaugemela faced each other, he made a move to create chaos, to do the unexpected, and to see what would happen. He had no real idea what would happen next; but he knew that he was the absolute master of Chaos in Action, that when things went out off the rails and everyone began reacting, HE would be able to adapt and take advantage of the new situation more quickly than anyone else on the battlefield. THAT was his genius, THAT was how he operated. He knew that his fly by the seat of his pants intuition was BETTER than all the planning done by all the military geniuses of his day. He didn't know what mistake the enemy was going to make - but he was sure that if he confounded them, they WOULD make a mistake, and he would spot it.

At Gaugemela, Alexander moved his cavalry unexpectedly to create some chaos. The other side was flustered, and made a mistake. Alexander saw the mistake instantly, exploited it immediately, and within a few minutes the massive Persian Army was scattered and Alexander was the new Ruler of Asia. That was his genius.

144 I will also say that "The Doors" had a certain hallucinogenic visual flair that captured fever dream world of Morrison's world:

The best thing, or things I should say, about the Doors was Kathleen Quinlan's bustline which was spectacular.

154 I don't really like Clint Eastwood as a director or actor. He was good in the spaghetti westerns that were directed by Sergio Leone only because his character was perfect for the part. You know. His character. Clint Eastwood the steely eyed, tense jawed movie star. As a director, I have never found him to be capable of nuance. He is just black and white. Always. Even when he uses good actors, they are reduced to some archetype that he is using to tell his story. Films like Unforgiven or Million Dollar Baby aren't bad. They just don't soar. There is a plodding nature to his vision.

That having been said, my favorite Clint Eastwood movie is Kelly's Heroes. It was not directed by Eastwood, but, once again, his limited acting range is perfect for his part. The one scene he messed up was at the end, when the German tank commander that blew open the bank for them was leaving with his take of the gold. He saluted Eastwood's character with the Roman salute, and Eastwood got all steely eyed and angry, like he's just pissed in his face. Of course, the German then realized his faux pas and changed it to the American army type salute. To which Eastwood responded in kind. His anger at the Nazi salute is ridiculous. It is an early 70's kind of political correctness of Nazi's bad, American's good. But, Eastwood and his fellow American thieves have already told the German that they don't know what the war is about and they're just going to get their share of booty. "Yeah, I'm a traitor and a thief, but that Nazi shit is just too evil!"

Kelly's Heroes had a great cast. Telly Savalas, Don Rickles, Carroll O'Connor, Donald Sutherland, Harry Dean Stanton, Gavin McLeod, and more whose faces you would recognize.

It is a remarkable consistency that seems impossible.

For instance everything that has Amy Adams in it is bad within the first 7 minutes.

Loved how the dog communicated psychically instead of moving its mouth (if remade today they'd move the mouth with cgi), and that dog's voice sounded like a whiny middle aged man stuck in traffic and arguing with his radio.

198 As opposed to Starship Troopers, Dune is an honorable yet failed effort to do justice to the Frank Herbert novel. It had some great casting and truly excellent art direction. On top of that it had a very effective sound track.

Unfortunately, the sheer complexity of the book defeated the screenwriters and the film falls apart in the second half. One dubious achievement of the film is that is has two of the most unintentionally hilarious lines in cinematic history:

I am the Shadout Mapes, the housekeeper.

And the never to be topped:

Well, the Nazi's are the bad guys. Even Kelly recognizes that. He simply thinks the US army is incompetent.

The interesting thing about Kelly's Heroes is how the film walks the tightrope. They can't have the American actions be simply greed. But the characters can't be angels fighting for Mom and apple pie. So in the end, sure the characters are in it for the money but they blow a hole in the German line to help the army advance. In some ways it's a capitalist film.

The portions of The Room that I saw was via Rifftrax, but I had to leave, so missed out on the whole experience.

The Disaster Artist was really well done, I thought. James Franco and his brother Dave were excellent.

220 The 2005 War of the Worlds movie was pretty mediocre (the bratty kids ruined it). However, there was one scene that stuck out to me and felt quite chilling.
It's the scene after the ferry gets tipped over and Tom Cruise and his kids swim to land. You can see in the background how the giant alien machines are methodically plucking people out of the water and zapping them like pests as they flee.
A follow up scene has a nice quote to sum up the situation; "This is not a war any more than there's a war
between men and maggots... This is an extermination."

To bad the super advanced aliens didn't know anything about bacteria...

There have been franchise movies in which the second movie, or first sequel, was as good or almost as good as the original. Godfather I & II. Alien and Aliens. Even the first Star Wars and The Empire Strikes back. But a third movie? I can't think of one off the top of my head. Anyone have an opinion on this?

231 Once Upon A Time In The West is one of the greatest westerns of all time and probably Henry Fonda's finest movie. He totally played out of character. One of the most evil villains put on film. Charles Bronson at his most Bronsonist (a GREAT thing) and Jason Robards wasn't shabby either. Claudia Cardinalle was a stunning beauty. Yes, I am a fanboy of OUTTITW.


I quote this in its entirety because I agree with all of that.

It's a funny thing, though, because it took me a while.

There's a girl, Italian, (Milan, not Jersey Shore) with whom I've been off and on for 20 years. Loves of each other's lives but we can't stand each other.

She tried to show me that movie one night when I hated her and it didn't work. Subsequently I realized that it's as good a western as has ever been made.

Another great scene in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom also involves Chris Pratt. See Owen has been left to die on the island after being shot with a tranquilizer strong enough to put down a dinosaur.

Instead of a Tasmanian Devil threatening him, there is a lava flow. So Pratt has to play half paralyzed while still avoiding the slowly advancing lava. So he is flopping and proving he is a contortionist to avoid being burned to death.

I read Dune and thought it had its moments. So I saw the film in 1984. Apparently, Alan Smithee directed it. I had just learned what that name meant. Having watched it and felt that it was appallingly bad, I couldn't help feel vindicated when the credits rolled and showed the director was Alan Smithee. David Lynch directed it, but was not allowed to use his own vision and did not get final cut approval. I felt the whole film suffered from the hey-we're-in-an-epic-so-let's-act-epically strategy.

290 A quick search sez that Ho-re-wood releases over 600 new movies per year.

I can't come close to watching each year's new releases, so I must be selective. That includes walking away on turkeys. I've dumped many a movie before the 10 minute mark. Quite a few of the new series as well. Westworld is awesome, btw.

The very first was Young Dr Frankenstein, in the theater. Becuz B&W. A point they avoided on their posters. I HATE B&W, probably cuz color TV came into our household quite late. It was a socio-economic thingy.

Give me color, or give me death. Something like that.

300 154 I don't really like Clint Eastwood as a director or actor. He was good in the spaghetti westerns that were directed by Sergio Leone only because his character was perfect for the part. You know. His character. Clint Eastwood the steely eyed, tense jawed movie star. As a director, I have never found him to be capable of nuance. He is just black and white. Always. Even when he uses good actors, they are reduced to some archetype that he is using to tell his story. Films like Unforgiven or Million Dollar Baby aren't bad. They just don't soar. There is a plodding nature to his vision.

When he was about 7, Jr. Chronda had a very interesting TV filter. If a show was animated, he'd watch it. If it was live-action color, he'd change the channel. If it was BW he'd watch it for a while to see if it was worth watching.

Have you seen either Sunshine Cleaning or Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day? Both were smaller movies with Adams as lead. Give them a try if you haven't seen them and you may be pleasantly surprised.

Doubt is also good, but Adams has a supporting role and doesn't really add anything. But, she doesn't hurt the movie either.

People who love a book should rarely make a movie from it. They usually fail because they can't see what does or doesn't work on film.

Plus, Rand's books are pedantic screeds. I read The Fountainhead in HS and was skipping whole sections by the end because it was brutally repetitive. Compare The Fountainhead to Heinlein's Starship Troopers. Both are stories that want to espouse a philosophy. Heinlein's is lean, to the point, and has solid story. Rand rambles forever the group talk-athons.

339 A couple of night's ago there was a thread(I missed) where people were discussing.

"Infinity War" part 2 or whatever it'll be called.

And someone mentioned that maybe not all of the heroes will be restored to life.

I think that's essentially right but not quite on point.

Even Marvel has said this is the culmination of their first iteration of the Marvel Universe....So-

in order to get their SJW versions on board for future movies, I think-

this will be Marvel's version of DC's "Flashpoint".

"Flashpoint" is essentially the story of Flash traveling to the past to save his mother and that screws up everything. He's no longer the Flash, Superman is an near autistic weenie alien kept under gov't seal, etc, etc. The ripples of the destroyed time line make it impossible to restore the original timeline fully. DC used it to launch their new 52 craptastic reworking of their moneymaking characters.

My guess is that Thanos will demand a price for restoring the Universe or perhaps can't truly restore the Universe and the heroes will be replaced in this timeline by alternative SJW heroes.

Some will never have existed. Some will exist but as other (SJWoid) people. Some will exist but not as heroes. You can see the opportunities for poignancy - Old never was Captain America dying in an old folks home. The new heroes will remember adventures with the remaining heroes who have no idea what and who they are and if they can be trusted. ETC.

Captain Marvel will be the new leader.

Pretty sure that's the future of the series.

YMMV.

362 >>Amy Adams and Jessica Chastain are the most overrated actresses going today, and yet they keep getting hired and put in almost every freaking film.


Amy Adams can be good in the right role - so good in "American Hustle," and appropriately over the top in "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day."

I have decided that Jessica Chastain is annoying, and it may be her personality that is off-putting. She was all "ra-ra feminism, strong powerful DC women!" describing her Miss Sloane character - and all I saw was a sociopath.

363 Possibly the worst third movie in any series was Halloween III. I would describe the level of continuity with the prior two movies as "same word in the title."

Exorcist III which was totally different from I and II is really good, I think. One scene in particular never fails to make my hair stand up. I read later that the studio forced a stupid exorcism scene because money. But George C SCOTT! is good in it.

That's not a bad bet. They've already said the Capt. Marvel is on path to be the leader. Whatever happens, anyone who is done with making these movies is going to die. Considering many of the ones most likely to be done are still alive, it is going to involve them making some sort of major sacrifice.

My prediction is this is the zenith for Marvel and super hero movies. After Avengers 4, it's going to decline because people won't want to start with new characters and SJWism is going to flow into the stories.

A funny thing about the movie -- the guy that wrote the book (renamed Gone To Texas) was a KKKster among other peccadilloes; Clint picked up the option on the book for $50k.

From wiki

Asa Earl Carter (September 4, 1925 - June 7, 1979) was a 1950s Ku Klux Klan leader, segregationist speech writer, and later western novelist. He co-wrote George Wallace's well-known pro-segregation line of 1963, "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever", and ran in the Democratic primary for governor of Alabama on a segregationist ticket.

I believe you are speaking of the talentless Sondra Locke. What can I say? Clint was dicking her. As a man, how do you tell a woman you're poking that she can't act for shit. Especially if you want to keep poking her. But, the fact that he cast her in that movie and subsequent movies proves my point about his quality as a director. Obviously, his dick is more important than the quality of his movies.

Only "gag" isn't really the right word because she wasn't doing it to be funny. But, she would run that number. And, in the end, he saw it from the other guy's perspective and could see how it played out. No longer had the cold urge for vengeance.

Though not as bad as Darkman, or Grunt! the Wrestling Movie, or Richard Chamberlain's Allen Quartermain (the latter two of which were playing in adjacent rooms at the dollar theater back in the day--they were so bad that we just kept switching back and forth until we ran out of candy and left).

418 Good evening, all! I have been thoroughly enjoying all your snark and wit over the years, but too shy to jump in, I guess. Just wanted to mention the movie we watched last nite-- "The Last Movie Star" with Burt Reynolds - very sweet and poignant movie.

We especially enjoyed the parts where the older, 'mobility challenged' Burt is in the scenes with his younger, virile, self. (Deliverance; Smokey and the Bandit) Makes you realize how quickly time zips by, and how you look back at your life - either with regret and sadness, or with reconciliation and acceptance. Even though the film isn't specifically about him, I can't help but think that it mirrored his life somewhat, and that he probably realizes the irony. It was difficult to see him in such tough shape now, but a nice little movie over all.

I think that's it-have a good night, and God bless all of you!

Directed by Tony Scott, Ridley's brother. And Catherine Deneuve is so beautiful.

The hospital scene with David Bowie trying to be admitted is perfect.

Easier Problem - Black To Play


20180623 - Problem 1.jpg
r2qkb1r/pp3pp1/2pp2p1/4n3/P1BQP1P1/2N5/1PP2PP1/R1B2RK1 b kq - 0 1

1...Nf3+!

Sub-optimal is an immediate 1...Qh4? because of 2.f3! and the certain win has slipped away. So 1...Nf3 has to be played in preparation for what follows.

2.gxf3 Qh4
3.Resigns

There's no defense against 3...Qh2# unless you're a chess app and want to die tired, like mine does, e.g. 3.Bxf7+ Kxf7 4.Bh6 Rxh6 5.Qc4+ d5 6.Qxd5+ cxd5 7.b3 Qh2#

More Challenging Problem - White To Play


20180623 - Problem 2.jpg
1R6/8/8/8/6K1/7p/5p1k/B7 w - - 0 1

1. Be5+ Kh1 2. Rb1+ Kg2 3. Rb2 h2 4. Bd4

Tempting is 4.Bxh2, hoping for 4...Bxh2 5.Rxf2 for the easy win, but Black has 4...Kh1!
5.Rb1+ (Not 5.Rxf2?? Stalemate) Kg2 6.Ra1 f1=Q 7.Rxf1 Kxf1 and draw

4...h1=Q
5.Rxf2+ Kg1
6.Kg3 for the win.

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.

28 No, the tiny waist is an illusion. (And the removing ribs for a tiny waist seems to be a myth). Remember the bra of the 50s was the bullet bra, padded if needed. Add a bouffant skirt with a crinoline underneath and the waist looks small by comparison

60 Now 'ettes, don't take this wrong, but of the top 100 chess players in the world one is a woman.

Researchers for the article suggest that it is not due to any innate ability or biology, but because of low female participation rates in the game at any level. And I agree -- women in general have little interest in chess.

Which they go on to say they have no explanation for.

80 Since this is an open thread I have a little gripe about ice cream that I want to vent.

I started making ice cream a little while ago. I looked up the super-secret ways of doing it at home with things you have lying around (a lot of shaking of ice and stuff ... not worth the effort) and I bought a couple of actual ice cream makers. The ice cream makers made nice ice cream but the last time I went to make some I screwed up and wasn't able to use the ice cream maker (I let the mix freeze on the sides and the thing wouldn't turn ...) so I ended up just stirring the mix with a fork and throwing it in the freezer.

Guess what ... it was perfectly good ice cream! There's no need for any tools, no machines, no nothing. You just put sugar and vanilla (and whatever you want) into some cream/half and half, mix it with a fork and throw the stuff in the freezer. That's it. Seriously. It gets a few ice crystals in it, so it's totally creamy ... but it tastes no different and it is ice cream, as good as any. If you want to lessen the ice crystals just take it out of the freezer after an hour and mix it up some more with your fork.

After all this, I feel totlly ripped off by Big Ice Cream Machine and the idiots on youtube who go through all sorts of retarded (and strenuous) Rube Goldberg methods of making ice cream. They are all wrong. You don't need anything to make good ice cream - just a bowl and a friggin fork.

I had to get that off my chest. It really bugged the hell out of me.

No. My Rb2 first has problems if black moves Kg2. Black can advance the h pawn (since the bishop is stuck behind the rook). Your first move of getting the bishop out seems the key.

I worry about him too. He will be a very different person now than if Trump had not run and won. He seems like a shy child on top of it. My hope is that Melania and his half-siblings will get him through it.

154 Poor Barron, having to drag his nephew along. Melania looks good in that dress and those heels. First dress gives a pretty effect but wearing such a full volume skirt would be full of UGH IRL. I like the dress in the dept. store window but all in all I am very glad to live in an age where its perfectly normal for me to hardly ever wear a dress or skirt.

Iirc, someone criticized what Sasha & Malia wore to a Turkey pardon, and was fired.

It was a stupid thing to write. It is pardoning a turkey and they are teenagers and looked fine. Firing the person was also extreme, as was the outcry.

Yet, slice and dice Barron and not a peep. The hypocrisy and mask falling and lack of civility is off the charts.

I can't imagine DJT being the kind of man who will just shrug his shoulders at this and say "oh well, that's what you have to put up with when you're president." Threatening him is one thing.

As I tried to explain in the Thread Before the Gardening Thread, there is absolutely nothing wrong with businesses refusing service to anyone they don't like.

It's called freedom of choice, but unfortunately it was outlawed by the civil rights laws.


Now it seems that those laws are being selectively enforced. Imagine the firestorm if a customer wearing an Obama T-shirt was refused service in 2009. That restaurant would have been put out of business within 24 hours.

the Press Secretary used her office twitter account to report that the restaurant told her to get out because of her office. Hatch Act Eleventy!!!!

It is rather nice of the Red Hen webpage to link to all their local produce suppliers so that they can also be asked if they want any Republican customers or not.

228 JuJuBee, oh no, Sanders was abusively wielding her power to hurt an obscure small business - this is the horrified take on her tweet from many airhead observers of a predictable sort.


As the reliable guide to Israeli responses to barbaric terror attacks goes, "it all started when I hit them back".


So Sanders is the aggressor for reporting what happened to her at the restaurant. Do try to keep these things straight, we have high standards in today's tribal, lawless, classless, morally imbecilic America.

233 Sarah Huckabee-Sanders and her party were told to leave a restaurant. Her tweet about it is classy.

"Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so."


I can't even anymore.

If I wasn't in Trump's camp already, stuff like this would put me there. This is not America, this incivility. Well, it used to not be. It is now.

But hey, owner has a right. We still have free speech and so, okay. I'll defend it that way.

But the owner just cut off his nose to spite his face.

Among the broader populace - not the political class (incl. GOP) or the Beltway/urban-coastal clueless. Those latter ones were quite happy to go stupid and preen in their cheap morality based on lies and distortions. And even Trump and Co. were stampeded (the EO).


Even so, the outrage of this situation is appalling. The only moral, responsible actor in the whole drama - US law enforcement - is slandered and demonized, while the vile illegal mass migration promoters in the US, the human traffickers and gangs, the criminal "governments" of Mexico and central America are not held accountable for their actions, which lead to massive actual human rights disasters for vulnerable children and women.

Call the DirecTV service number and when the robot asks what department you are trying to reach say "Cancellation!". This gets you directly to an account rep (or it used to back when I still paid these lowlife scum for their pathetic service).

Explain the problem, tell that Dish is having a special deal for new customers, and you are ready to cancel your DirecTV account because of this abuse. Tell them to double check the account records to see how often you have ever downloaded a movie. Also say that Dish is offering brand new top of the line equipment as part of the new customer deal. And be willing to cancel if you go this route.

Bottom line is that a yuuuge portion of America is ignorant, racist, and irresponsibly stupid and misinformed - and arrogantly morally narcissistic - to the point that they're making everyday life very un-American. And the "commanding heights" of the society - not just the collapsed sectors of academia, entertainment, hi-tech industry - are dominated by this disastrous combination of traits.


FFS, "American" Airlines' CEO felt it was a good idea to ignorantly half-assedly posture on the non-issue of OMG! families separated!! OMG!!. A f***ing AIRLINE company. Not some civil illiterates like tech company kid-CEOs. An airline.

Shade earned this nickname when we were doing a 50 shortly after that movie had played on TV and after going slow through a rocky section we hit clear looking area that had hidden gopher holes. Sped up and she hit a hole and managed to not fully fall on me. Both our faces were a bit scraped and she'd had a good wrench on her leg but she was not going to quit. Sadly she had a bit of offset on her front legs and it did lead to arthritis in her right knee, forcing retirement at age 16 and euthanasia on June 18 at 21 years.

Attached please find some pics of my Border Collies. The black and white mom is Fiona, blue Merle dad is Spenser, and the pups are yet to be named. We are thinking of naming all the Merle's after blues songs, and I'm pushing for "Betty" for the black and white one. Bam ba lam! - Frank


Puppies, so cute!!! Thanks.

I am a long time lurker and follower of the Ace of Spades blog. I have enjoyed the content and the wit of many commenters. Y'all come up with stuff that is funnier than anything on TV. I have especially enjoyed the Pet thread. The stories that your readers tell about their amazing shaggy friends are often bittersweet, as they tell about losing these friends after so many wonderful years.
I would like to submit my pal, Cooper (aka Coop de Ville) as a Pet of the Week. Coop is a two year old Maltipoo, and my wife and I have had him for about 16 months. We knew that Coop was a very refined pup, but we were a little surprised when he asked to personalize and beautify his area. He chose the art himself, and asked to put it in his bedroom, photos included. He has really brightened our senior lives, and he is a real pal.
Thanks for your consideration.

Well, this lurker didn't give me permission to use his first name or his initials. Let's just say this Lurker Moron from S.C. really has a spoiled dog. Nice job!!!

***


Thank you for the submissions this past week. A fine group of animals and a fine group of Morons.

Do you have a story, link or a pet photo you wish to share? You may pass them along to petmorons at gmail dot com. Please give us a name to use so we can credit you or shame you, j/k.

Have a great week!!

8 I looked at the very last picture, then I read about Cooper. I looked at the picture again. I saw that the person writing it was getting up in years. I tried my best to see a dog in that picture. I was about to conclude the anonymous lurker that posted that pic had dementia and thought the pillow was a dog. Then I scrolled up and saw the picture above it. Never mind!

26 Our dog Smokey broke a vein in his right ear two weeks ago. Of course it was a Sunday night. At least we were in Sioux Falls and not in the middle of nowhere Montana. He did the left ear 4 years ago and nearly died in the surgery, so we were concerned. We found a great vet who saw us right away on Monday morning, and did the surgery that afternoon. He used a diffrent type of anesthesia and brought him out right away. Smokey is fine, still has a drain and stitches, but it doesnt bother him. We're still traveling in the RV and will be back in Sioux Falls on Monday for the drain and stitch removal. Vets all over the country love us and we love them.

40 We mentioned last week that Prince the Poodle had been diagnosed with Cushings. Well, the medicine the vet gave him is helping. He's livlier for sure and feeling better. He spotted a squirrel in the back yard and took off so hard and fast he jerked the leash out of Mrs. JTB's hand. And if properly motivated (read that food) he can stand on his hind legs for a bit. pretty good for a 14 year old dog.

44 While not pets, we have 3 whitetail does who had their fawns on our property. A singleton, whom we got to watch being born, and taking their first steps, and two sets of twins. They really grow up fast.

The deer population is up, partly because of good deer years the last two or so, but I suspect equally or more so because of the development going on around our neighborhood, which is pushing them out.

C'mon, folks, this is Texas. There's no need for Kaliforniaesque zero lot-lines.

48 {{{Caturday}}}

Harli is sort of settling in. She still hisses at the other cats, but less frequently. I think she's put on weight, since there's always something in a bowl somewhere. Not much I can do about the way our hosts' cats are fed.

She loves the yard and being able to go outside again. Overall, despite the stress of no longer being the only cat, this is a vast improvement for her. She sleeps like the dead at night.

52 My buddy's got a border collie that almost could convert me from beagles. Little guy (7 months) apparently got stepped on by a cow. Looked bad at first, but 2 weeks later he's about 95%. Friendliest and smartest dog you could hope for, even happy with a bunged up leg.

And for beagle comedy, look on youtube for Louie and Marie. Spoiled, those two.

53 Smartest dog I have ever had in my life is a border collie mix/mashup. Still with us but getting pretty close to completely blind and deaf at 18. When she was younger, you could tell her who in the family to go find, and off she would go until they were located, even out in our neighborhood.

Going to miss her someday, I suspect soon.They are with us for far too short a time.

55 Son took his dog to the vet today (another ear infection), and he said she asked how I was doing since putting down Sandy, after having to put down Spanky.

Anyhow, she said one of the vet techs is fostering twelve (12!) kittens that have been tested for feline leukemia, been wormed, and had their shots. She said I'm welcome to a couple of free ones.

I'd seriously consider it, but my home looks like a youth hostel now (son and dog and student move back on campus first week in August), and I cannot deal.


As I said to husband and son, "There will always be kittens that need homes."

Posted by: Texican ette at June 23, 2018 05:26 PM (aUFe9)

It's where the house comes up close to the edge of the lot it's in, leaving very little space between houses and around neighborhoods. A lot of the neighborhoods in California have them (I think they're in Arizona too). They're absolutely terrible for wildlife and normally leave the houses with tiny yards.

Posted by: Surfperch at June 23, 2018 05:37 PM (/pt8Q)

67 When I was a teen, we had a border collie that seemed to never stop going. I learned not too often to do the throw the stick and have her retrieve it. That dog could go on and on, and I just wanted (after awhile) to just quite. Not the dog. We buried her up in the mountains off a dirt road where we played together. I often when in that area, visit the place under a tree where all the sticks came from, and she is buried.

Granddaughter is learning 'share' with our elderly border boy -- he is chewing on his toy, she takes it in confidence that he won't mind (and she sometimes chews it), and then gives it back. She spent an hour back and forth with Dog's toy and him. Cat spends more time with the youngsters now, but he is King of the Hill. Those two oldsters have a new lease on life with their kids.

79 The zero lot line building around here seems to be following the Northern Kalifornia pattern I thought I'd left (no pun intended) behind. Lots are .15 to .25 of an acre, houses are 1800 to 2500+ sq. ft. Almost all 2K+ sq. feet are split-level or two story. You can look out several of your windows, and see into your neighbors (and vice-versa, obviously).

We have a stunning amount of wildlife around here. Deer, raccoons, possum, foxes, coyotes, bobcats, numerous reptiles (including a big ol' turtle who lays a couple of clutches of eggs every year) and amphibians, birds (lots of cardinals and hummingbirds).

Various neighbors have some cattle, longhorns, and bison.

Fortunately (from a tear-up-the-land perspective), and unfortunately (from a I'm-down-to-my-last-pork-roast in the freezer perspective), we've avoided any real wild hog infestation so far.

I'm in the civil engineering/land survey field, and while the single family home subdivisions are still going strong, there is a huge increase in high density multifamily developments, and my city is huge on urban in-fill, developing parcels that have been dormant. it's good for business, and I guess I have no problem with the idea, but the Deep State paranoiac in my head sees a push to "Recycle your car, public transportation is the Way to Go."

Saturday Gardening Thread: The Science is Shifting [KT]

kt 62.jpg

After reading about the attempted coup news of the day, nice to have my Shangri la --- the real world we fight to maintain.
Illiniwek

Welcome to the first official week of Summer 2018 on the Gardening Thread! It is weeks like this that I appreciate The Horde. We get some great things in the mail. It's been a wild week for me. Haven't gotten to all of them. Sorry about the short thread. But The Horde supplied the ideas and/or photos which follow.

Wildflowers in the Wild and in the Garden

Cumberland Astro has some friends in Texas who are interested in Indian Paint Brush and Indian Blanket. One of these is an easy summer garden flower. The other is not so easy, and may be better in a wild setting, unless you are doing a meadow or something, because it is a hemiparasite. But it brings up an interesting topic: changes in botanical names.

As a result of developments in the science of genetics, a few decades ago, the Figwort Family, formerly very large, was decimated. Most of its members were moved to other families. Even snapdragons, formerly considered to be models for the family. That is because genetic evidence was more powerful than similarities in plant structure. Changes in botanical names continue at a slower pace today. They remain disconcerting to gardeners. Don't get me started on "Chrysanthemum".

But still, botanical names are less confusing than common names. Especially of wildflowers, as Cumberland Astro has noted. I think the Indian Paintbrushes pretty much retained their genus and species names when they switched families.

Indian Paintbrush

Here is a photo of Scarlet Indian Paintbrush, Castilleja coccinea, one kind of Indian Paintbrush for which seed is offered. It is an Eastern species, though there are many more species in the West. It is apparently pollinated primarily by the Ruby-throated Hummingbird.

castilleja-coccinea-indian-paint.jpg

If you will be starting Indian Paintbrush in a container, good hosts for many hemiparasitic species include low-growing grasses and sedges like Hairy Grama, Blue Grama, Buffalo Grass, Common Oak Sedge, Sweet Grass, and June Grass. With a knife make a 2" deep cut at the base of the host plant. Sow seed in the cut, making sure seed is not more than 1/8" deep. If host is transplanted at sowing time, the cut is not needed because damaged roots will be available for attachment by the parasite. You may also try sowing hemiparasitic and host species seeds together at the same time. To add hemiparasitic species to existing sites, scatter seed on soil surface (rake in if seed is large) in late fall.

The Forest Service says that this species is found in Texas as well as in more easterly states, though their map doesn't show Texas in its native range. I expect that planting instructions would be similar for other species found in Texas and elsewhere. The Forest Service did provide some other information:

Ironically, this plant was used by Native Americans as both a love charm in food and as a poison used to against their enemies, as this species is known to have toxic properties.

Indian Paintbrush is known to concentrate selenium if it is in the soil. This might account for beneficial properties in small amounts and toxic properties in large amounts.

Owl Clover

As an aside, I was surprised to find that Owl's Clovers, which were never real clovers, has been re-classified into the same genus as Indian Paint Brush. They grow around my house where the land is not cultivated for a season and grasses take hold. They are also hemiparasites.

See the little owls peeking out of the flower? More photos of Owl's Clovers and Paintbrushes at the link.

Owls-clover-Pur.jpg

Fields of Owl's Clover are sometimes seen in places where this plant and its host plants don't get much competition: deserts, alkali flats, sand dunes, etc. They often seem to bloom after their host plants have dried up for the season.

Indian Blanket

In contrast to the hemiparasites above, Indian Blanket, Gaillardia, is a pretty easy summer garden flower to grow in much of the country. This genus is in the Aster Family. There are several species in North and South America. Sometimes it is called 'Firewheel'. Below is G. pulchella, which is found in Texas and much of the Southeast.

Garden hybrids are mostly called 'Gaillardia x grandiflora'. I like 'Arizona Apricot' and the red solid color ones.

Gardens of The Horde

We have been getting some lovely flower photos, but not many veggie photos yet this season. Some nice veggie commentary in the comments though.

Ever wondered what turnip flowers look like? This is what turnips look like the second year. I've eaten my share of turnip blossoms. They're the yellow ones. The blue ones are vetch. Don't think I would eat those flowers. These were grown by Illiniwek, who has the means to dig them under.

Looking forward to some photos or tips from you, too.

They don't like the heat but they last for a little while.

Hummingbirds come through in the evening and like to sip their nectar.

5 The weather in SoCal is the worst spring and now summer I can remember. So cool and cloudy. My tomatoes and peppers and everything are dwarf size and looking weak. I've only gotten 2 zucchini so far when usually I'd be giving them away because we're sick of them. Oh well I guess it's farmers market this weekend then! Even not as many monarchs in the milkweed.

6 I am pleasantly surprised to see volunteers from last year's planting in my deck pots: petunias, pansies and lanai verbena in a lime color.

Still need to fill in a bunch of bare spots, but the freebies are a welcome starter.

10 Raining today, and boy do we need it. My mother was over yesterday and asked me how many hours it takes to water all my plants. :-P I am container gardening this year, and told her only 15 minutes. I am sure it does look intimidating to someone with a black thumb (like my mother) though.

Harvested lettuce, spinach, mustard greens, and green beans this week.

The Brussels sprouts, tomatoes, peas, and cabbage are all looking great!

Many peppers will be harvested this week. I foresee a day of freezing in my future.

11 One of the wildflowers blooming prolifically in my area right now is Butterfly Weed, don't let the name put you off, it is a beautiful bloomer, and it lives up to its name, you always see butterfly's landing on top of the blooms. Easy to search for a picture of it, it's pretty widely known.

That's what I thought. Then I went to see it. I suppose if you squint and can get past the lifeguards, roped-off areas, concessions, parking lots, and the fact that the nearest town is only 2 miles away and was there at the time Thoreau lived there, it looks almost exactly like that!

Beautiful pictures as always, KT!

17 Does anyone know if the killer romaine epidemic is over?
I haven't had any romaine since people have started getting sick and dying from e coli infected produce. And then on this blog there was discussion about workers defecating in the fields and it makes me not want to eat any greens at all.
Kudos to all of you who are growing your own veggies. At least you know it's safe.

I remember some really cool Junes in Southern California. Fog, too. A lot of people don't know about that feature of the region's weather.

It has been cooler this spring in the San Joaquin Valley, too. We've had several days over the century mark, but interspersed with cooler days.

21 Tom Servo at June 23, 2018 12:55 PM

Fun that you have butterfly weed growing wild near you. It doesn't transplant well, but if you plant some, it's good near spring bulbs. It emerges late, so the bulbs help you remember not to dig up the roots accidentally, and the plant doesn't shade out the ripening foliage of the bulbs.

33 The hairy vetch was recommended to me for waterways, and it offers about a month with those nice purple blooms. The yellow faded and the purple was thick till a week ago. But yeah, turnips are more for the food plots, though I like the yellow display the next year.

I never considered eating them .. reminds me of the song "please please don't eat the daisies" ... Doris Day did the song and movie. There is probably deeper meaning to "let the daisies grow so we can all enjoy ... life" ... certainly many mothers have made a house a home. fits with the last thread.

Althaea is a genus that contains the marshmallow. The flowers look a lot like Rose of Sharon flowers. Not as big.

That said, it's frustrating as he'll when it's been raining for 3 days. I got it done yesterday between rain showers. My tomato plants have plenty of small green fruit. Looking forward to those being big and red. My hydrangea is blooming. So far it has one giant pink bloom and a few inches away is a giant blue bloom. I'm hoping to get a few that are blue on one end of the flower, pink on the other end and a stripe of lavender in between. Happy gardening!

40 Where we live in East Texas we can pretty much grow everything. Except....when summer hits it kills all the weaklings. Plants that have thrived here are crepe myrtle, Oak trees (any kind), Texas sage, most cedars and pine trees, forsythia, chaste trees, magnolia, and sweetgum trees. Everything else requires extra watering to survive. Except the weeds. My weeds are the envy of the neighborhood. We also have Rose of Sharon, pecan trees, peach trees, maple trees, Ginko, bay leaf, tomatoes, corn, okra, zucchini/squash, Chinese pistache, hickory trees, dogwood trees, willow trees, elm trees, hydrangea, roses, rosemary, gardenia, camellia, azaleas, and various holly and other hedge like bushes that I don't even know the name of. Our water bills run 3 to 400 dollars a month in the deep summer.

41 You guys made me run over to the window to see if my Rose of Sharon trees had bloomed yet. Just like JTB's, ours are full of buds, but they are still pretty tightly closed.

My basil (in pots on my deck) is doing awful this year. It's hardly growing at all. I think we've had too much rain. They have good drainage, so that's not the problem, but I think they just don't like being one step away from the Ark.

42 We've had a lot of rain the last week. Not the frog drowning type earlier in the month but steady and frequent enough that nothing gets a chance to completely dry out. The garden seems to be enjoying it, however. We are supposed to get some sunshine this week. Makes me wonder if someone finally sacrificed a virgin or something.

52 I have a patch of prairie on the property. Rather than mow, I would burn.

But I noticed an endangered butterfly (the regal fritillary) flying all around. So this year I did not burn, which is supposed to help the butterfly numbers.

Next year I have to burn to keep the bluestem free of invasive trees.

53 I know rose of Sharon has a reputation for spreading like crazy but in over thirty years that hasn't been a problem in our yard. We've had a few come up in odd places but only a few. Perhaps because we mow between and around them that limits the spread.

As to the gardener who dismissed althea as a 'heritage' plant: did it occur to them they are still around because they are popular, pretty, acclimated, or all three? What an attitude.

You know what? Mine must be a different sort. My parents brought them over from clippings they took from theirs. Mine are little trees, and have never spread sideways, only grown up.

59 JTB, what about basil? I'm of the opinion that one can never have enough, and if you start it now it will last long after any other you have going now.

Or parsley. It won't do too much if you plant it now, but will start going gangbusters again in the fall when it gets cooler. And it will come back again next year.

Posted by: bluebell at June 23, 2018 02:12 PM (rhdgT)

60 Every year I see the life cycling though the prairie.

The straw color of winter gives way to green gradually. If you burn in the early spring, black ash coats the ground, and it greens up fully in two weeks.

Then we get the white and yellow of daisies. The butterfly start to appear, and are all over when the Missouri goldenrods take over from the fading daisies.

Amidst the gold bracts I see the occasional bright orange of butterfly milkweed, with many butterflies in attendance. As they fade, I see crown vetch with the white and purple flowers (I have no horses, so the toxins are of no concern).

65 My oceanspray (Holodiscus discolor) is in full bloom now,

It is a fairly tall, multi-stemmed bush that puts out huge masses of tiny cream colored flowers. It is native to west of the rockies, and grows well in the open.

It is not so popular with the honeybees, but every small native bee and some beetles cannot stay away. I can ID the small mason bees, and hoverflies and the small bumblebees, but I can't tell finer than that. I also can't ID the beetles because beetles.

I have been working on a number of native flowering plants so I can attract native bees to my yard all year long. I planted Indian plum this spring, and I am looking at plants like Ninebark (Physocarpus since there are a lot of ninebarks) and Service berry

I suppose I needed a hobby.

70 If you want something that is interesting looking, hardy, and extremely invasive, plant a Passion Flower, or Passion Vine. It has been blooming here for a week or so and has begun to attract the gulf fritillary, or Agraulis vanillae. There will be some spiky, reddish orange caterpillars shortly. After they feed on the Passion Vine, they tend to form pupae on our roof overhang above the flowers. I eventually have to brush the empty pupae off in the fall as they will stay there for years if I don't. New Passion Vines will start up in the yard, usually within 30 feet of the old ones and must be pulled up or they will be everywhere.

I've loved the times when I've lived in places where you could watch that progression! I lived in Fort Worth for a few years (which is about where the Great Plains end) and there was a patch of undisturbed prairie out west of town, next to the Clear Fork of the Trinity, and it would always have the most beautiful flowers, all summer long, but as you say there was a handoff from one set to the next. And there were thistles too! Yeah, I understand completely why you gotta get rid of those.

76 Waves shyly back at Jewells45.

Put next year on your calendar. You can help me burn some pasture. We need an early Spring day with low winds, so it's hard to find.

Just let me put out the fires before they get too big.

I got a story about that when I had a reflash fire into the woods to the west. 175 feet away from the house, with only 100 feet of hose.

The flames were 3 feet taller than me, and could endanger 2 other houses if the woods caught fire. I went through a pressure sprayer and three fire extinguishers slowing the fire down before my up-the-hill neighbor Norma saved the day with 100 feet of more hose.

A long day.

80 Oh, and I wasn't vigilant enough this year and now we have a house wren nest with four eggs in one of my hanging baskets on my front porch. Which means my plant will die (I'm always afraid to water it after the babies hatch) and I'll have bird poop all over my front porch. Bah humbug.

Every year they want to do that, and I always try to catch the nests before they finish them, and remove them. Then they go elsewhere. But if they finish the nests and lay eggs, I leave them, of course. I'd say I'm vigilant enough 50% of the time.

101 I've been spraying goats heads every day that rain is not predicted. Last year both horse and I were sound and while I did some spraying I chose to go have fun. Hopefully next year will be sound and I will have put a huge dent in the burrs and can keep them under control and still do a lot of riding.

I took some pics of some of the weeds I leave alone in the horse pens. They are called bean weeds around here but I could not find a match for bean weed on duck so I guess its a local nickname. Purple flowers and then they from bean/pea pods that are about 2 inches long and quite narrow and thin.

102 OK.
Lawn Tractor wouldn't keep running. It was fuel starved. Replaced the fuel filter to no avail.

Started disassembling the carb but stopped.

Gumout forced start:
_Took the air cleaner off and poured a taste of gasoline down the throat
_started the engine and sprayed Gumout in the throat while the engine was running. (sprayed about 3 seconds)
_the engine would die each time it ran out of gas but I noticed it was beginning to run a little longer.
_continued with the taste of gas, three second Gumout until it would run on its own.

I let it run (rough) about three minutes then started the Gumout again but allowing more time between sprays.

Then (while it was still running) I poured about three oz of Sea Foam in the tank (contained no more than 1/2 gal), stirred, and then allowed the engine to run about ten more minutes at smooth idle.

Whew. I didn't want to take that carb apart.
Now I can go cut.

108 Horses like corn stalks and husks same as cows and you can give them non moldy garden leftovers but horses are susceptible to a mold that grows on corn. They get a nerve poisoning effect, lose coordination and die. Cows are not affected by that mold so can be turned out on harvested corn fields or fed baled cornstalks in bad hay years supplemented with something to get their daily protein high enough.

110 We are battling fungus in our garden-we have had so much rain, and so little sun it's becoming a real problem.

I also have pondered that some plants I bought from a garden store may have harbored the fungus, because it's only in the bed in which they are planted. Everything I started from seed is okay. We are spraying organic fungicide, to keep the stuff from spreading, but it's starting to cost a chunk of money.

I am in awe of subsistence farmers who deal with this in gardens that provide their food. I am blessed to be able to go to a grocery store, but I am beginning to have a greater appreciation for non-GMO/non organic means of protecting crops. It works, and you have food.

114 COJ. They are evil burrs and will hide under or in other plants. I used to try to avoid spraying when I was younger but with a couple acres of sand horse pens I just cannot keep up w/o using 2-4-D spray. I choose that because it only kills plants that absorb it thru the leaves, no residual in the soil. Thus I can let other weeds that the bees like remain and keep the sand from blowing around as much. We are too sandy and lack water to get grass growing which would be the ideal.

117 "I am in awe of subsistence farmers who deal with
this in gardens that provide their food." Posted by: moki

some of these homesteaders start with all the "pure" off grid, no chemicals, etc. dreams. Many go back on grid, which I think makes sense as long as the grid is nearby. Same with chemicals ... be smart but many will lose crops and trees and give up trying to be so "pure", while there are very safe chemical choices.

the latest for me is the Japanese Beetle ... those traps work, but when it's warm and they swarm, they can destroy crops, maybe even kill off the grapes, fruit trees, etc. Sevin knocks them right down, and the flowers can be avoided to save the pollinators.

I killed them one day, and collected a couple gallons of them in the phermone traps ... then after 3" of rain had to reapply the Sevin ... has to be done. kill kill kill. heh

anyway, I hate to see those that try so hard fail just because they refuse to use (very safe) chemicals. But if they can make it work, fine ... but I still think they could save many days of work and have more/better food if they accepted some chemicals. "drugs are gooood", to repurpose that old phrase.

Get a large-flowered variety, like 'Nelly Moser' or 'Dr. Ruppel'-- they don't grow as tall as others.
Do not, repeat, do NOT plant a c. montana (like mine, that was featured on a previous garden thread!), as they will grow 30 feet or more!
Be sure to read their tags at the garden center, and just know that you'll need to do at least *a little* pruning anyway... but they are oh-so-pretty and are worth the trouble.

Thread before the Gardening Thread: No Snark Week [KT]

Serving your mid-day open thread needs

Happy Saturday! I am out of snark today. I am even out of irony. Among other dramatic events of the week, I watched emergency crews at our home and at the hospital work together pretty intelligently to bring our friend back from the brink of death. Changes your perspective some. I plan to write some notes of appreciation. Lots of prayers were said in his behalf, too.

The things our friend cared about when he came back to consciousness a few days later were the people he knows and his little dog. And making sure that his private world was in order. My to-do list has changed as a result of this experience with him. Maybe it shouldn't take something so traumatic to prompt us to remember some of those important things we have been putting off.

I've been following the news, but my mind is not on analysis right now. This is an open thread, so if you have an observation on the world of media or politics, feel free. It was a remarkable week in more ways than one.

But if you're ready for a breather, I have been saving a video for a while that you might appreciate, or at least find interesting. I like the idea of people feeling free to ramble alone in the park, in the dark. I guess that was a different time.

Here's a little slicker version of the song, Ella singing with the Duke Ellington Orchestra:

Can't imagine these being recorded today.

Anything interesting happen to you or near you this week? Got any interesting plans for the weekend?

I survived a scare last year, almost to the day.
It kind of messed me up for a while though, because I developed anxiety disorder, feeling like I was on the brink of death every moment.

But I'm better after a longterm recovery process that included lots of prayer.

17 I plan to write some notes of appreciation.

I think that's a nice idea. I think the world would be a nicer place if more people did that. I am known as the "Card Queen" at the church because I send them out a lot. I prefer that than sending out "Thank you" e-mails although I do that too; Written cards are more personal. However, there have been plenty of times when I meant to send out a card of appreciation and didn't and I regret that later. That reminds me, a friend gave me flowers on the day of my son's graduation saying "It's just as much your graduation as it is his and you should be congratulated ." I think that was very sweet of her. I will send her a thank you note.

You may hunt it with forks and hope;
You may threaten its life with a railway-share;
You may charm it with smiles and soap--'"

In a hasty parenthesis cried,
"That's exactly the way I have always been told
That the capture of Snarks should be tried!")

Lost to hypothermia while hiking. Three days for the search crews to locate her. The doubts, the despair of that time jump up and down on me relentlessly. Friends stood by me, helped and took care of me and I'd have been lost without them. My gratitude is boundless.

What you are describing is post-traumatic distress.

Notice I did not say post-traumatic distress disorder.

It ain't disorder until it lingers beyond the point at which most people would recover. Otherwise, it's just living.

Now, am I just being semantic?

No. The problem, as I see it, is that we have words for all sorts of things that represent the human condition, and some of them, the so-called cure is worse than the underlying "disorder."

You used the word, anxiety. That again, implies a disorder. However, the thoughts and emotions around events that are traumatic, are NOT due to something being wrong with you. They are you, responding to your world, in a completely rational way, that lessens over time, with effort and support.

One should NEVER feel "bad" or "wrong" for dealing with trauma this way, but the way our mental health industry handles these things, often, is to give people pills, which impede the actual healing.

I am glad you are better, and I am glad you had prayer to help you get there.

I started doing this at my office the last 4-5 years or so. At the end of the year, in addition to writing up a review for each designer I worked with throughout the year to provide to their bosses for their evaluation, I get each of them a card and a $25 gift card to some restaurant. And then I'll write a little something personal for each of them in the card to thank them for all the hard work they did during the year that helped the success of the project. And I always let them know that I could not succeed in my job without their efforts.

It's something small, but it goes a long way to building good relationships and showing appreciation and letting people know we see them as people/friends/family, not just coworkers.

A few years ago, I also started doing this for the ladies who work down in the cafeteria in our building. I see them every morning to get my breakfast and they always are cheerful and friendly. I got each of them cards with a personal message thanking them for always starting off my mornings on a happy note and included $25 gift cards for them too.

I can't even tell you how overjoyed they were. It made my day to see their reactions too. For all the nonsense they deal with people on a daily basis being jerks or impatient or rude, I hoped that my gesture let them know their efforts were appreciated.

Small things goes long ways to build good relationships.

I watched crows.

I decided on my walks where I was sunk in anxiety, that crows were a good luck sign, and when I saw one I had to say about what I was mired in, "that is going to be OK, and I had to relax"

Eventually I got in my head that if I thought about positive things, I could say to myself, "that will happen and be good"

The thing is, crows are not like light poles or fire hydrants, they don't show up regularly, so I had to start thinking positive things all the time for the off-chance that I would see a crow.

The result was that I started to thing of positive things instead of anxiety things and my head got better. If I had just tried to force myself to think positive I would have tied myself into further anxiety and knots, so I got to trick myself into it.

Crows had nothing to do with it, but I love feeding them still.

61 There was a lot about what a shit hole Mexico was yesterday. Dangerous too: The company I work for is delightfully old school. They take their high performers to all inclusive destinations every February. We've been to Jamaica, The Bahamas, and Mexico multiple times. Wife and I decided to take our daughters a few years ago, and it ended up a beautiful vacation. But I almost died before it got going. We checked into our room, and I headed to the rec. desk to book a snorkeling trip. There was a cloud burst and I came back to the room dripping wet. Oldest daughter and I were setting up my tablet to test the GoPro, and I reached out and touched a lamp fixture on the credenza. I got ALL the amps from that fixture, and the connection at the outlet exploded. I was dazed, and watched as the cord burned away from the plug, and continued to burn, creeping up the back of the credenza. Oldest had her wits, and poured a bottle of water to stop the plastic/copper fire. It took 2 bottles of water to extinguish that fire. If I hadn't had my flip-flops on would have probably been dead. The room was filled with acrid smoke, and it pooled up around the absolutely mute smoke alarm.
We ended up getting upgraded to the "Presidente" suite and had a great vacation. That's the last trip to mexico my company will ever book.

The funny thing is, you weren't "tricking" yourself at all!

That's how this stuff works. It's how the human mind heals. By using itself to create thoughts that are useful, meaningful, and get us moving in the direction we want to go, instead of mired in the muck of anxiety.

It's also important to note, what you describe there, "force myself to think positive," is NOT the same thing, and it rarely works for anybody.

If that makes any sense.

The difference between recognizing one's negativity, and choosing to do something positive, is not the same as pretending the negative is not there in the first place. It's there, and you are choosing not to give in to it.

Burt, I finally figured out that it was some form of PTSD. I'd been through a very trying year, and when my third loved one passed away suddenly at age 37 I think something in my heart/mind continuum just snapped.
Thank God I had a doc that eschews anxiety meds, I can't take that stuff anyway. There was a young man who helped me along the way who shared that he had anxiety and it was solved with CBD oil. Have you heard of this?

CBD oil? I assume it's not related to our notorious COB??

No, I have never heard of it. People use all sorts of things to heal, and if it helps, I'm glad to hear it.

The mind and body need to be fed, and if this helps to do that, then that is wonderful. Any pill that masks the pain though, is a detriment to healing.

I do know lots of people embrace the term PTSD, and I don't mean to be dismissive, because people can and do "break" due to trauma, of all kinds.

It's my own soapbox issue, I just don't like calling it a disorder, because as I said, it suggests something wrong with the person, and that bugs the hell out of me.

If it was shorted out and correctly grounded, it woulda tripped the breaker right off the bat. Things with metal chassis like that should be grounded so that if the hot connection becomes attached to the case, it trips the circuit. That's why we have polarized plugs and outlets for things that have just 2 plugs.

Heh. Once upon a time, I recall a discussion (it may have occurred on this very site) about a remote kill switch. The idea being, if you have a computer and/or hard drive with all sorts of "sensitive" information on it, you pay a company some small amount of money to kill it, erase it, wipe it clean (like, not with a cloth), if the company does not get a signal from you after so many hours/days.

Ostensibly, one would be protecting one's banking and other financial data, but truly, we know that lots of fellas don't want their family members finding their pron stash after they're gone.

Lately, I've noticed the Mobys calling in on Rush and other talk show have a new talking point that they push Every. Single. Time.

They say something along the lines of-

"I really like the results of what Trump is doing...the economy for instance.

"But-

"I'm really bothered by the fact that President Trump is not a godly man."

Then they'll use some leftard talking points dressed in the skin of "Trump is not a godly man".


So yeah, they're trying to use your faith against you.

Hopefully, people aren't stupid enough to fall for that, but who knows?

I think one recovers from this kind of thing better when one is young.

I came close, a couple of times, to dying, as a child. The one I remember was passing out on the way to the hospital and waking up in an oxygen tent three days later.

Years later, mom told me the doctors weren't sure I was going to make it. Had my dad known, at the time, the kind of crap I would do as a teenager, well, not sure I he would have allowed me to leave the hospital.

176 Probably should save this for the Book Thread tomorrow but while it still resonates after reading about it felt I should post it.

How to be Safe by Tom McAllister. The New Yorker and Entertainment Weekly love it.

He appropriates the voice of a woman teacher, how sexist is that also right? Then makes her an emotional wreck, playing into stereotypes again Tom? So she gets suspended for an emotional outburst. Does this need further comment? While suspended a school shooting happens and the media at first blames her. Even though later exonerated, a cloud still follows her as the town descends into bickering.*

https://www.amazon.com/How-Be-Safe-Tom-McAllister/dp/1631494139

If anyone wants to read the reviews go for it, but they reinforce my decision to skip this book completely.

I'm a Christian (in the sense that I was raised Catholic, but no longer attend church, but still believe in God/Jesus), but am no Biblical scholar.

But aren't there plenty of stories in the Bible where God has used ordinary, flawed people to spread His word and works?

As far as Presidents (and any elected official is concerned, I am of the Batman Begins persuasion:

"It's not who you are underneath, it what you do that defines you."

I am also more a man impressed by the actions of others, not their words.

The Left is all impressed with words and speeches and redefining words to make themselves feel good. Virtue signaling. Yet, they never are held accountable for all their words and speeches and virtue signaling failing in the real world to actually improve any situation.

I don't care what President Trump (or any Republican politician) says, I care what he does. So far, his actions speak louder than any words spoken by his detractors.

184 my little piece of the old farm here comes with many memories. My Mom was on the way out to take my grandmother to the doctor when her mom passed away in the 60's (in an old rocking chair I need to restore). Two of my uncles that still lived here had that deeply embedded in their memories. For several years I helped care for the one that bought this part of the farm, then took care of my Mom here for eight years.

But through all those important times, others are plotting on how they can get into more money, especially with my uncles that didn't have kids. So yeah, people are important, but the land of liberty we have came with people that thought generations ahead, and often fought and sacrificed to repel (local, federal, or foreign) tyranny.

All too often ("usually" is what my step Dad told me) ... the caring people get screwed by the conniving people and their lawyers. So indeed the solid will for your family is important, and the scheme is that conniving people and their lawyers know when the elderly are in their last year or so, they can be cajoled and deceived. A video of you stating your will, and a doctor that agrees his patient was of sound mind at the time is helpful, if there are "foxes in the hen house".

For those that have family and a strong community ... God bless you, keep building it and guarding it. I see some strong families, but I also see some money coming in and buying up many family farms, run by liars and cheats. As that happens, and absent landowners rent to the struggling small farmer or hire illegals ... we lose the country and are on the "Road to Serfdom".

Maintaining the whole generational package is essential ... for which we are called deplorable and racist, irredeemable.

That ain't gonna happen because they know the Bible says that the Devil himself can quote scripture and can come to you as an angel of light.

199 From that linked article:

a small group of evangelicals known as Red Letter Christians. They eschew politics altogether, saying they choose instead to follow Jesus' teachings: feeding the poor, sheltering immigrants and tending to the sick.
...
And yet at the same time we've just experienced a tax cut that's removed $1.5 trillion of money from essential services, mostly benefiting the wealthy


So they're not interested in feeding the poor themselves. They're interested in forcing taxpayers to do it. And they're not interested in encouraging foreign taxpayers to look about the foreign poor; they demand American taxpayers do that.

"Christians", my ass. The red-letter guys want more of Caesar's grain dole.

The server assigned to her table posted that he had only waited on the Sanders party for two minutes before the manager marched up and told Sanders and her family to leave.

That's been going on since the beginning of Trump's campaign. The reason we have Manafort, Papadopoulos, Page and others is because both democrats and republicans put out word early if you work for Trump you're through in DC so he didn't have a big field to choose from.

238 One of the bosses at Netflix tried to be a virtue-signalling super-liberal by holding a meeting where he told employees, "These are the words you're not allowed to say because they are offensive: [various epithets] ni&&er [more epithets]. I am informing you so that you don't say them! Don't be offensive by saying these taboo words!"

Guess what happened?

Black employees complained that he said "ni&&er," and of course he was...fired and publicly humiliated!:

https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-44585072

The article dances around describing what actually happened, of course. It tries to make him look like a racist villain. But the upshot he was fired for saying a taboo word while in the act of listing for people which words are taboo.

Yet another corporate coup. Makes the Cultural Revolution seem sane by comparison.

240 All too often ("usually" is what my step Dad told me) ... the caring people get screwed by the conniving people and their lawyers. So indeed the solid will for your family is important, and the scheme is that conniving people and their lawyers know when the elderly are in their last year or so, they can be cajoled and deceived. A video of you stating your will, and a doctor that agrees his patient was of sound mind at the time is helpful, if there are "foxes in the hen house"."

"Pregnant girlfriend cried and pleaded with boyfriend to stop YouTube stunt moments before shooting him dead"

"A heavily pregnant girlfriend, who fatally shot the father of her child in a botched YouTube stunt, cried and pleaded with him to stop moments before the tragedy, new court documents have revealed.

Monalisa Perez, 21, told Pedro Ruiz III “I can’t do this babe, I am so scared” as he urged her to fire a high-calibre pistol into a book he was holding in front of his chest.

A transcript of the video, released Friday, detailed how Ruiz, 22, reassured his girlfriend that the 1.5-inch hardcover encyclopedia would stop the bullet, as they filmed the stunt outside their Minnesota home in June last year.

However the shot from the .50-caliber Desert Eagle Perez fired from point blank range penetrated through the book and fatally wounded the aspiring YouTuber.

The stunt took place in front of 30 witnesses including Perez and Ruiz’s three-year-old daughter."

yeah, in time "the country" has to do the boycott/divest thing to the DC/NY mafia. Move all investments out of the east coast cabal ... and as much as possible invest locally to build your own community. We have sent our savings through the globalist machine and became too dependent of WallStreet to invest (in foreign regimes or through public "offerings" determined by whom?).

They returned the favor by supporting slavery, pollution, theft of tech, etc ... to make their profit in other lands as we ran up debt buying it all. The most leveraged sucked up massive profit, and when they failed we bailed them out instead of letting them fail, and jailing them for their bribery and fraud. The American economy moved toward "financial services" ... lending to the debtor class and printing out of thin air.

But the profits and money printing (by government but also by banks and public stock printers) are such an allure that we all feel so rich. This has many good points ... a growing economy, but many distortions for the rigged markets and those that play in the quadrillion dollar (unregulated, shadowy) derivative markets, not to mention all the underworld money and power.

a big task, but we can at least invest more locally, even buying stocks more locally ... though the seat on the exchange doesn't come cheap. complicated and tricky business.

As long as he doesn't tell Irish custom officials he Polish. Because Irish people think they're letting in too many Pollocks as it is.

Isn't the current set of immigration policies the same set of immigration policies that were in place when Comey was FBI director under Obama? The only difference, I think, is that the Trump administration is actually enforcing the laws.

381 The right thing to do for the restaurant that kicked Sanders out, is this:

Go in, be seated, and order the most expensive thing on the menu. Don't touch the water, don't consume a THING.

When the entrée is served, leave the proper tip for the waiter/waitress, then stand up and leave.

There is no "Theft of Services", when the you've not partaken of said services, and tipping the staff ensures that you've not stolen their help, either.

This way, the restaurant is clearly OUT the value of the foods cooked and served, which you now reject.

Be sure to note on the bill though, your reason for leaving... something like "This is for Sarah Sanders!"

Make it cost. Make it hurt.

Of course the idiot owners of the restaurant should have the right to refuse service to anyone. But that right, under a broader concept unknown to "progressives" (a ridiculous upside-down term) of freedom of association, was devastated by ill-advised "civil rights" "reforms". So who knows - maybe the idiot restaurant should *not* have the right to refuse service, under current conditions.


The hilarious yet just depressing thing to see is the stupid online mobs of illiterate "progressives" anguishing over the "power" Sanders abused by reporting the incident. You see, relating the ridiculous thing that happened to her was abusive.


I guess because now the restaurant may be firebombed, or its owners or employees doxxed and hassled or harmed - all of which is bad, and should not be done, mind you. But it might happen. Rumors are that false reservations have already been made. Rumors, mind you.

Ayn Rand wrote back in the 60s "Freedom of association includes the freedom not to associate."

Abolishing the Jim Crow laws that made racial discrimination mandatory was the right thing to do. But the civil rights laws went too far in outlawing private discrimination. Who cares if a white restaurant owner only wants to serve white customers, or if a black barbershop owner only wants to cut and style black peoples' hair? What business is it of the government whether or not a bar owner wants to allow smoking on his property?

Let everybody, business owners and customers alike, exercise free choice and let the free market operate. That will ensure the greatest happiness for the greatest number, without force or coercion.

It's OK, the NPR listeners will be shielded from this megaton-yield scandal milestone, too, who knows what idiotic non-news will be the "news" in a few weeks.


Impossible to imagine there haven't been multiple referrals or criminal investigations started by Huber based on the basic facts of the FISA abuse chapter of the mega-scandal.


And the central mystery that still confounds: how can Rosie stay in his job, or at least not be specifically recused from anything to do with this aspect of the crime wave, given his signature on the last FISA warrant renewal application? (we'd know if such a recusal took place)

464 Cicero, agree that the IG performance so far was mixed - thorough investigation, capped by a cowardly, almost humorously disingenuous "findings" component. So much of the purpose of the IG function was squandered on the Espionage Act case. But the factoids discovered and documented and so on may well be valuable for prosecutions.

23 Still disgusted (but not surprised) by George Will. He just proves that Ace's analysis on the Never Trumpers was dead on accurate from the start. If you really hate Trump that much, it won't be very long before you admit that you hate all of Trump's supporters, and want to see them crushed. Will has finally admitted that to everyone, and to himself.

He's not a "conservative", he's a Royalist, and he despises the idea that any of the deplorables down in the lower classes should ever get uppity and think they can tell the Upper Class (of which he is a proud member) what to do.

62 Good morning.


Consider for a few moments the heart of a human baby. It is a few ounces of muscle, fat and connective tissue that has a rhythmic, self-sustaining electrical system. It consists of two separate but remarkably similar pumps, the right and left sides of the heart. It is fully formed by the 8th week of gestation, and continues to beat rhythmically, steadily and continuously for up to 100 years, without any outside help in the vast majority of instances. The stunning symmetry of the microscopic arrangement of myosin and actin protein fibers creates a highly efficient pumpin machine. The delicate and yet durable valves regulate the direction of blood flow through the veins and arteries. Consider the simple mechanical elegance of this one single organ. And then ask yourself one question...


...Is there any conceivable way that this was the result of a slimy puddle of primordial goo randomly organizing with this as the accidental result?

Ok, so then this whole thing is rather simple: The feds say the housing has to be dismantled after use. The bid that lost, tried to workaround that requirement, thus coming in lower, because the dude was going to leave the housing up, on his own land.

The locals, who had no choice in the matter, this was a federal requirement, rejected his bid, because it didn't include the dismantling.

So if anything, this is a story about the feds being stupid and wasteful. It has nothing to do with any nefarious doings of the locals. And honestly, the loser's complaint, about a son of one of the guys who analyzed the bids being a subcontractor for the winner, is a b.s. claim.

97 And the canucks seem pretty quiet about illegal immigration these days...but maybe we can deport more illegals to Canada if they run their mouths again
_________________

After toy-boy Justin of the Eyebrows sanctimoniously announced that Canada would gladly welcome all "refugees" (in the name of their god diversity), a bunch of Nigerians and Haitians from the U.S. started going to Canada and asking for asylum.

The Canadians were appalled, and quickly withdrew Justin's hasty and ill-advised invitation. Now the Canadian government is sending delegations down to the states to try and convince the "refugees" to stay here and not blight Canada.

But don't call them hypocrites. Even though they clearly are hypocrites.

98 I had my identity stolen in the late 90's. That was fun. I tracked them down, too. Somebody named Jackson living in an apartment in Florida.
The only thing they managed to get away with was opening a Sprint account, although they tried to buy a car with my credit.
I still keep the paperwork from Sprint in case a bill collector comes after me.

I have long contended, most people who appear on tv, wherever they appear on tv, are whores. Actors, newsreaders, pundits, hosts, "reality" tv stars, so-called experts of all kinds... they're whores. They are selling themselves, for money.

How they are whoring themselves, is of no consequence. The market has room for many options.

Some of them, play the part of the "conservative."

But make no mistake, it's all about the exposure and the money. They get paid to play their part.

Now.. do some of them actual, more or less, believe what they say? Sure. Some of them. I think for example, Ann Coulter mostly leans conservative in her thinking. She also bangs people like Bill Mahar when she's not espousing her conservative views, so I doubt she holds them deeply. But they're there.

Guys like George Will are just bags of contrarian, constrained foppish... royalism (I do like that term), that I don't believe anything he says is meant to accomplish anything other than make him look smart. To himself.

That shouldn't worry you, that should make you jump up and do high fives! What has been the LIE of the left all these years? That they want to control the border too, they just want it done "humanely". What has been the TRUTH of the Left, all along? That they want Absolutely Open Borders, and Instant Citizenship with Instant Voting Rights for everyone who wants to wander across the border.

That is what they want, that is what they have ALWAYS wanted. But they were always careful to try to not admit that in public before now.

And today they are admitting it, openly. GREAT! Lets go to the election on that - anyone who is against Total Open Borders is RAYCISS!!!! That's what the left is going to campaign on.

176 Back in college, during the days of pan-Gaia, I invented a beer float: yes, ice cream doused with beer. Being the inventor, I was thereafter obliged to promote how great it tasted, and to have one at every party thereafter.

It was actually pretty awful, but then, I didn't much like being condemned to naught but Budweiser, either.

The only thing they managed to get away with was opening a Sprint account, although they tried to buy a car with my credit.
I still keep the paperwork from Sprint in case a bill collector comes after me.

Not identity theft, but identity confusion. We can chuckle over it now.

Mrs IMG is the second Mrs IMG, as I am her second Mr. She almost balked at us dating when she learned my middle name is the same as her ex's first name.

Hahahaha!

Well into our relationship, I told Mrs IMG that her first AND middle names were the same as my ex. Big eyes at that, of course.

Now, my ex was not fiscally prudent and there were a few incidents a decade or so ago needing lengthy phone conversations with credit bureaus and such.

Like I said, now we can shake our heads and smile.

Just to bring this theme together..

Darrell Porter assumed room temperature in 2002. Cocaine was the cause of death. The place where he died?

Sugar Creek, MO.

So to summaraize: We have English eels on coke, we have Kentucky fauna of all sorts on bourbon, and now we have the worms in Sugar Creek, MO, consuming Porter's room temperature coke.

I disagree.

The contract was awarded to the bid that met the requirements of the proposal, for the lowest cost. There are thousands of contracts that are awarded this way, and it's not always about somebody trying to do something crooked.

The loser submitted a bid that didn't meet the standards required for the job. Simple as that.

So he's scattering blame around, for something that was his fault.

259 Arrington "sustained a fracture in her back and several broken ribs," as well as other injuries that required her to undergo "major surgery including the removal of a portion of her small intestine and a portion of her colon," one tweet said.

The main artery in her legs partially collapsed and will need a stint, according to another tweet.

"Additional surgeries will be required including one likely today; and it is likely that Katie will remain hospitalized for the next two weeks," the tweet said.

Her inventor is a man. My guess is that this is to fulfill a sadomasochistic fantasy. Ie. some guy fantasizes that the girl tells him no, and then he forces himself on her.

The feminist response is funny:

The emergence of sex robots and ultra-realistic love dolls has outraged those who complain the silicone bimbos are demeaning to women.
...
But the demonstration did not go down well with rival speaker Prof Kathleen Richardson, founder of The Campaign Against Sex Robots.

She stormed: "This development is just an extension of pornography and prostitution and a waste of money which could be spent on better things."


First of all, how could feminists consider this demeaning to women? Their whole complaint is that the attentions of men are demeaning to women, and this will deflect such attentions. And what the heck does this have to do with prostitution? No woman is exploited or endangered by such encounters. There's no risk of disease.

I watched the repair guy last time. There's a place in the bottom of the freezer that is supposed to be heated to make it frost free. A little electrical board in the fridge goes kaput, and the defrosted water now stays in this area and blocks cold air going to the fridge. I can take out the frozen food, fire up a hair dryer to melt the ice, and all will be good for a few days. I'm hoping I can get it repaired on Monday

Turns out the little fan that blows the cold air from the freezer to to fridge was stuck in some ice.

I put every thing into a big ice chest and turned off the thing. I took a hair dryer and defrosted the coils in the freezer. Voila it's working again. And a lot quieter. If you fridge is making noise, that's a bad thing.

40 My refrigerator talks to me, well it tries to talk to me. I freaked the ex-girlfriend out when I tried to localize the voices I was hearing late at night, one night. It sounded like a distant conversation where the words are indistinct and all you hear is the rising and falling tone and inflection of a conversation between two people.

When I realized the sound was being made by the coolant going through the evaporator coils I could then ignore it.

I only hear the noise now when I'm wondering if the electricity has gone away during the night. If the 'fridge is running, the power is on.

47 This will probably be an unpopular idea around here, but I think the Administration should purchase or rent housing near the ports of entry on Mexico border and offer to pay for the stay of Central American's seeking asylum. I've read reports of families being turned away, to come back later when border agents not so busy, and having to sleep under bridges. If the Administration makes it crystal clear that sneaking across the border is totally unnecessary for asylum seekers, then that ought to undercut ANY argument by the Dems that such lawbreaking should be tolerated.

That'd be ideal, but AFAIK requires a change in law. I'm thinking of strategies to defeat the Dems at PR war until the elections.

71 6 The Border Patrol Counsel VP rips in to Cynthia Nixon and other ignorant Democrats. Say they should go back to history class. Actually they need to attend a class on credible lying.
________________

They don't care if what they say is true or not. Just like Time magazine and the photographer who took the photo of the crying kid on the cover. The photographer knew the kid had not been "separated" from her mother, and Time knew it too. But they all published it anyway.

The husband of the woman who brought that kid into the U.S. says he has a good job in Honduras. The woman was previously deported from the U.S. in 2013, on what was apparently her first illegal entry. The husband says she has family living here. They have probably been regaling her with stories of all the "free" money they're getting from the U.S. government.

There had to have been a powerful incentive for this woman to leave her other kids behind in Honduras, pay a coyote $6,000, and put herself and her little girl at risk of rape, kidnapping, sex-trafficking, etc., by the cartels in Mexico. But what's a more powerful incentive than the prospect of free money?

Illegal aliens who successfully claim asylum in the U.S. get paid thousands of dollars every month in cash and other benefits. This woman's relatives were probably telling her that she was a sucker for not hopping on board the gravy train with them. So now she's in a detention center in TX, awaiting a hearing on her asylum claim. And if it's denied and she's deported, she'll likely be paying another coyote again next year to sneak her in back across the border once more.

Meanwhile, U.S. taxpayers continue to pay through the nose for all these illegal alien scammers, one way or another. We're either paying billions for their bullshit asylum claims, or we're paying billions to house them here and provide them with lawyers and translators and food and clothing and medical care, etc., while they await their hearings. And for the ones who can't convince a judge to grant them asylum, they get deported, and then they come back over and over and over to do it all again.

100 From WaPo, which I definitely ain't linking --

In a pair of court filings Friday, the special counsel added four assistant U.S. attorneys to the case against Russian entities and people accused of running an online influence operation targeting American voters. People familiar with the staffing decision said the new prosecutors are not joining Mueller's team, but rather are being added to the case.

Supposedly due to Mueller winding up his witchhunt, but more likely so his ass ain't in court about having to provide discovery materials to that group of Russians demanding a speedy trial. Sigh.

106 I've been saying this for at lease the last forever, the US immigration system is oriented towards one goal only - Reduce the white majority.
So to that end immigration is nothing more than a race to use any avenue that is provided to shove as many third world garbage people and Democrat voters through the gates as fast as possible before the American people wake up and slam it shut.
We are nearly to the point of it all being academic.
Once the white population falls below 65pct or therabouts, it's all over except the shouting as we will be overwhelmed with invaders.

As I said yesterday, the British used Hessians, the Democrats and the GOPe use Hondurans, Guatamalans, Mexicans, Indian, Africans, Muslims, etc.

Yeah, if it had been talked about, people might have wondered just how the shooter knew how to find that baseball game, which was at a rather obscure location (and he knew nothing about DC). And then they might have noticed that the shooter was in contact with Dick Durbin's office immediately before the shooting.

Now I don't think Durbin knew that there would be shooting, but I think Durbin would still be mighty embarrassed to have it come out that he gave the shooter a map directing him to his intended victims.

158 And soon, very soon after the victory of our movement we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world, Obrador said, adding that immigrants must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.

So your country failed and you are coming to break ours. So when exactly do we use the 400 million guns?

164 Now I don't think Durbin knew that there would be shooting, but I think Durbin would still be mighty embarrassed to have it come out that he gave the shooter a map directing him to his intended victims.
Posted by: Tom Servo at June 23, 2018 08:08 AM (V2Yro)

He may not have known about the planned shooting, but I'd bet dollars to donuts that he (or whoever corresponded with the guy) knew some kind of confrontation was planned.
Posted by: No One of Consequence at June 23, 2018 08:18 AM (+F0Wk)


That's my suspicion, also. Durbin is an A-1 a$$hole besides being a scumbag Lefty: don't forget, he labeled American troops as "Nazis" during the Bush #2 administration.

167 That's my suspicion, also. Durbin is an A-1 a$$hole besides being a scumbag Lefty: don't forget, he labeled American troops as "Nazis" during the Bush #2 administration."

And that's the answer to the question - How come everyone in the media acts like the Scalise shooting never happened and has worked as hard as they can to bury the story from day one? Durbin was complicit in it, and they know it.

Posted by: Tom Servo at June 23, 2018 08:34 AM (V2Yro)

168 Wanted to raise this question in the last thread.... is it possible that the main reason the Scalise shooting seems to have been forgotten is simply because the perp is dead and there are no court proceedings to cover as a result? I'm not disputing that there are left leaning media people who would rather not look too closely at it but it seems that one of the main ingredients that keeps other mass shooting stories going--ongoing court proceedings, hearings, trial, sentencing, etc.-- is missing in this case.

Posted by: Secret Square at June 23, 2018 07:58 AM (9WuX0)



Aren't the perps almost universally dead by the end? I can't remember the last trial for a mass shooting. Help me out here.

169 33 I'm sad. I was excited to make a scale model of the solar system in augmented reality, but then learned I'd need like 7 square miles to plot out all the orbits (this is with earth being the size of a marble). It can't be done without fudging the scale. "

There's a 10m wx radome at the local airport, just off the highway. Two miles down the road is a stop sign. When stopped at that sign, and looking at that radome I figure my coffee cup is approximately (earth/sun) in scale to diameter and distance to that radome.

204 One day, I'll be able to tell my grandkids, "I was there when the nicks were coined for both Bear with Asymmetrical Balls AND Santa's Dick". And they'll give me that pained smile and nod to the friendly nurse who will dose me out of my damn coconut.

It's gonna be AWESOME.

People were always really excited in school hen I was on their team when we did a trivia game day in class to prepare/review for the test.

Also I joined the academic team as a junior and one day for practice as a senior it was me vs everyone else there who had been doing it since junior high and going over the stuff.

243 Saw Incredibles 2 it was enjoyable, but really kept trying too hard with the girl power theme. Don't get me wrong there were some incredible moments. The fight scene between Elastagirl and the villain in a dark room was visually incredible (no pun intended). Edna Mole was hilarious and Jack-Jack vs. racoon will have you laughing in delight. It just tried too hard to send a message that women are better than men and that was a shame. The first movie felt more balanced and all of the main characters were given a chance to shine. I liked it, but didn't love it. One more thing, it needed more Dash running on water moments.
