THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I

Of course it’s unfair, but life is unfair. Simply running around talking about unfairness, is this gonna convince people who are on the fence that what’s being done to President Trump is mean and unfair and therefore they’re going to disagree with — the whole thing is bogus. This thing needs to be exposed for what it is. Rush Limbaugh


Quote II

Before I start, I must give the obligatory disclaimer: I am in no way defending pornography or the porn industry. I agree with Walsh‘s contention that it is a profoundly harmful activity. Nevertheless, it is not the state’s role to prohibit people from consuming it. Jeff Charles


Quote III

“It seems like the university has something against us. Truman State needs to stop making excuses and recognize our group. We understand that many people don’t like the idea of animal rights, but we still deserve the same platform as the other groups on campus.” Naomi Mathew


Quote IV

"It's an environment that you should wear gas masks on because of strong sulphuric gases. You can hear the noise of the gas coming out of the volcano. It's quite an intense but beautiful experience if you do a little circuit and then get off pretty quickly."Prof. Ben Kennedy


Quote V


"When confronted, they didn't run from danger, they ran toward it and saved lives. If not for their actions, and the actions of the Naval Security Force that were the first responders on the scene, this incident could have been far worse."Timothy Kinsella, the base commander


Quote VI

James Comey will go down in history, one, as being a sanctimonious partisan, but two, as being the guy who really did more to damage to the FBI than anybody else in the history of the FBI including Hoover, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)


Quote VII

“What was going on here, this wasn’t Jason Bourne. This was Beavis and Butt-Head." Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)

Brewery takes marketing to a new level. Beer cans with erotic reindeer.

A brewery in North Carolina is feeling the heat over a holiday beer can featuring erotic reindeer doing the dirty.

Sycamore Brewing had to pull the 2019 version of their Christmas Cookie Winter Ale from the shelves after an anonymous complaint led to a visit from the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission, Fox 46 reported.

Turns out, the naughty reindeer depicted on the cans were a little too merry, being displayed in various sexually suggestive positions.

My guess? There is someone looking for a job.

Walmart issued an apology for a Christmas sweater on the store's Canadian website that featured a reference to doing illicit drugs.

The sweater, which was formerly available from a third-party seller on Walmart.ca, featured Santa Claus with lines of what the product description called "quality, grade A, Colombian snow," but online observers agreed was a reference to cocaine.

For those traveling in South Africa by E Jaguars there is now somehting special for you. Charging station map.

Jaguar have released their full interactive map of electric vehicle charging stations across South Africa.

The 54 charging stations, which make up the Jaguar Powerway, are dotted along the Gauteng, Durban and the N1 between Gauteng and Cape Town.

In addition, Cape Town is connected to the Garden Route all the way up to East London.


I wonder if these cars can use the same charging stations?

Currently, South Africans can buy the Nissan Leaf, Jaguar I-Pace or BMW i3 electric vehicles.

Air plane emissions and global warming. They are still looking for the perfect unicorn fart to power planes. The next best thing? Used cooking oil?

They say it reduces CO2 emissions by 80 percent. Does it really?

KLM is the oldest airline in the world still flying under its original Royal Dutch Airways name for a hundred years now. Like other airlines, they are trying to figure out how to cope with a future where we have to reduce our carbon footprint and where flight-shaming is becoming a thing. Now they are trying biofuels; Neste, a Finnish maker of renewable diesel and other fuels, is now supplying KLM with "sustainable aviation fuel (SAF)" made from used cooking oil, which will "reduce CO2 emissions by up to 80 percent compared to fossil kerosene." From the press release:

As we approach the end of the year we will be inundated with 2019 awards. 'They'The Word of The Year. Gimme a f*cking break.

Dictionary publisher and good Twitter account Merriam-Webster has declared the pronoun “they” as 2019’s Word of the Year.

The company revealed on Tuesday that there was a 313 percent increase in searches of the word “they” on Merriam-Webster.com this year when compared to 2018.

“English famously lacks a gender-neutral singular pronoun to correspond neatly with singular pronouns like everyone or someone, and as a consequence they has been used for this purpose for over 600 years,” read a statement from Merriam-Webster. In recent years, “they” has gained more prominence for its singular pronoun use, thanks to the growing awareness of non-binary and gender-nonconforming (GNC) individuals.


Person of the Year? Why the little scold, Greta Thunberg.

We were told to deal with gender neutral bathrooms. Obviously someone didn't get the message.

A Twitter user is getting dragged after sharing a story about going into a gender-neutral bathroom and having a man walk into it. She was horrified.

Most people who enter a gender-neutral bathroom would probably assume they might see someone of a different gender, but she claims to have been surprised. In fact, she says there were two men, one who entered the bathroom to use it as the facilities manager intended and another who waited outside until she left.

She condemns the first man and applauds the second:

Chalk one up for the good guys. Just how long this victory streak will last is anyone's guess.

After more than four years of litigation that pitted the State of New York against energy giant Exxon Mobil for allegedly hiding the cost of climate change from investors, a judge has exonerated the company of wrongdoing.

New York Justice Barry Ostrager ruled on the Exxon Mobil case on Tuesday.

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum. Genius Award Winner.

A Pinellas County man caused an auto crash on Park Boulevard on Saturday night that caused a boat to go flying off a trailer and closed the road for five hours, Florida Highway Patrol troopers said.

Sylvester Manning, 66, of Seminole, was arrested on DUI charges after the crash. Troopers noted in arrest reports and a news release that Manning has faced three previous DUI charges — two in March 2015 in Pasco County and another in 1990 in Pinellas County.

Santa has a helper. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A 93-year-old man spends all year making hundreds of wooden toys by hand to ensure he has enough toys for local children to enjoy at Christmas.

Ed Higinbotham made 300 wooden trucks this year in his home workshop in Georges Township, Pennsylvania.

State trooper Robert Broadwater picked the toys up last week. The police department will distribute the trucks to pre-schools and other groups in the community.

I took a training program last week to be able to work with kids at church. A section of it was devoted to recognizing grooming behavior of adults. As part of the training, they showed interviews of convicted pedos. One of the guys they interviewed told of the young boys he abused. When asked if he had sexual contact with men he said something along the lines of "NO! I'm not gay! That is disgusting!"

Had a yellow lab that had separation anxiety. Did kinda the same, we came home and he was wearing the cat-sized dog-door that used to be in the wall around his neck like a necklace (still haven't painted the replacement drywall).

Wish I had something for you, but we never really cured him of it. He was two-ish when we got him.

But...we did have medication we would give sparingly, as has been mentioned.

Good luck, I love Rotties and would love to have one (I have one in mind...another lurker Moron's ex-wife who has one that doesn't really want him, because narcissist...but like 2 now, and un-cut....*sigh*...but I'd take him in a heartbeat).

The bulk of their showroom inventory is about 50% pre-owned guns. Many are just "common" guns, at that, especially as to hunting arms.

Shop carefully and thoroughly, there are bargains to be had.

And in fact, I've profited handsomely in at least two transactions there. Once, when I bought a 1905 Parker 12 ga VH shotgun for about 1/3 of the price I sold it for a month later.

Second time, I sold them an "O" frame S&W .38 snubbie. Pre-"J" frame. Picture the exact proportions of an "N" frame Smith, but in the J-frame size. The trigger guard was not the elongated oval of the "J" frame, but a smaller but identical profile to an "N" frame revolver.

I'd bought it at a different gun store for $225, out the door.

Got $600 in trade value from Collector's for it, used that to pay off two layaways there.

You don't always pay too much at Collectors. You just have to know your markets for any given hardware on any given day.

There's a chapter in "To Kill A Mockingbird" which describes how delighted Scout and Jem to see that it's snowing in their Alabama town. They try to make a snowman and Jem comes up with the idea of making a mudman and then covering the mud with the scant snow that has fallen on the ground.

Believe me, in Wisconsin, we did not have to settle for covering mud with snow to make a snowman.

Was also at Texas Tactical Gear today.

Any of you who know Jen and her dog Ginger, pray for them both.

Ginger is a very frail 16 years old, and her hips don't hop any more. Front end walks just fine though.

So, Jen throws a nylon strap under the aft end of the belly, and lift-walks Ginger out to the grass for her "walk".

I've played more tug of war with that dog in the gunstore than most people have spent time IN a gun store.

She'll still want to play with her tug of war ball. But now you've got to "let her" win. Time was, you could NOT win.

The pup's days are numbered, but dear God, that dog is still so full of the joy of life, you know she's not ready to quit, just yet.

I left the store because of all the dust in the air.

I'll tell the story of the cash transaction there for a pair of Barrett M-81s, in just a bit. That story has some interesting after action to the report.

In the Theory and Principle of States' Rights, the South was entirely correct and within the boundaries of (then) established law.

Pity was though, they applied the above Theory as to the Exact Wrong CAUSE, that being Chattel Slavery. (don't say otherwise, it's in the Confederate Declaration of Independence, and more).

Point being, the South squandered the Right of Secession on an un-defensible cause, and did so not by legislature and courts, but by war.

Which they lost, soon as the war lasted beyond the South's ability to sustain.

Had not the South rallied for that loathsome cause, then the idea of Secession would not now be as unimaginable as it remains, even today.

That's the true loss of the War Between the States / War of Northern Aggression, or whatever one might wish to append to the meatgrinder it was.

We're still going to see some Secession, I think.

But the boundaries won't be as defined as they were in the 1860s.

230 Jet fuel made from used cooking oil? Alla same as "bio-diesel". It's going to make almost exactly the same amount of CO2 when burned as does fossil fuel kerosene. The conceit is that the bio-fuel took CO2 out of the air when the original fats/oils were made. Guess what? the same is true for fossil fuels. The carbon in fossil fuels came from plant matter, either directly, or via animals' consumption of plant matter, and the plants sucked it out of the air by photosynthesis, same as they do now/ Only difference is in how long the carbon stayed in storage.

Plus, I don't think I want to ride on an airplane fueled by "bio-kerosene". Too much chance of there being some blob of unreacted fat, or left-over caustic potash getting into the fuel tank, and taking out one or more engines. The refineries making fuel out of crude oil have been doing it for over a century, and they know what the fuck they are doing. "Bio-fuels"? Not so much.

235 Hoover's concern was for the well-being of the country

Well, Hoover considered maximizing his political power to be in the interests of the well-being of the country.

John F. Kennedy came into office, and intended to fire Hoover as one of his first actions. Robert F. Kennedy was dispatched to have lunch with Hoover, and explain that Hoover was going to retire.

It would be hysterical to have a transcript of that lunch conversation, as Hoover explained why the Kennedys weren't going to fire him.

Maintenance of blackmail files on powerful politicians was a key function of the Hoover-era FBI.

Ya... no.


That is a stupidly simplistic analysis of the causes of the war. Slavery was an issue but it wasn't even the main issue (and I will remind you MR. Lincoln did not believe so either or else the Emancipation Proclamation would have, ya know, emancipated slaves in the North).

When I got a Labrador pup and put it in the crate for his first evening in his new home, he started to whimper, whine, and bark. The crate was in the family room.

So the first night I slept next to the door of the crate on the floor. Kept the door open. The pup slept all night.

Did this for 3 nights, then cut back to just sit outside the door for a few minutes until the pup fell asleep.

Never had another problem.

Now, this was a 13 week old pup, not a nearly grown dog. And a Lab, not a Rot.

And to the day the dog passed on, just saying "Shadow, crate" once and the dog immediately went to his crate.

As compared to how many BTUs it takes to refine an AVERAGE crude into Jet-A.

Let us stipulate that we're not using West Texas Sweet Crude as the base, 'cause that stuff is damn near ready to run as Diesel, right off the well head.

Oh, and while we're at it?

Let's not forget to ADD IN the necessary BTUs required to render whatever vegetative manner ended up AS that "used cooking oil" in the first place.

Oh, and the BTU's burned up by the various restaurants that resulted in said cooking oils being "used", in the first place.

Yeah, "maths".

But it all either adds up, or it doesn't.

You can burn used cooking oil, as is, in a Diesel engine. Just filter it, and keep the engine and fuel hot, so it stays fluid enough. Rudolf Diesel designed his engine to run on peanut oil, you know.

"Bio-diesel" is made by reacting used cooking oil/fats with potassium hydroxide, and anhydrous methanol, in a process called "trans-esterification". And that requires costly reagents. Glycerin is a by-product.

260 Virginia Democrats are contemplating lighting the powder keg that ignites the second Civil War.

'The law is the law': Virginia Democrats float prosecution and National Guard for police who fail to enforce gun control legislation
https://t.co/spy9K0I8TG

Virginia Democratic officials, however, already say local law enforcement supporting these resolutions will face consequences if they do not carry out any law the state Legislature passes.

"I would hope they either resign in good conscience, because they cannot uphold the law which they are sworn to uphold, or they're prosecuted for failure to fulfill their oath," Democratic Virginia Rep. Gerry Connolly told the Washington Examiner of local county police who may refuse to enforce future gun control measures. "The law is the law. If that becomes the law, you don't have a choice, not if you're a sworn officer of the law."

Democratic Virginia Rep. Donald McEachin suggested cutting off state funds to counties that do not comply with any gun control measures that pass in Richmond.

"They certainly risk funding, because if the sheriff's department is not going to enforce the law, they're going to lose money. The counties' attorneys offices are not going to have the money to prosecute because their prosecutions are going to go down," he said.

McEachin also noted that Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam could call the National Guard, if necessary.

310 Cook a good filet to a kind-of-hot Medium-Rare.

Plate it, and plate the sides and serve.

By time you put knife to steak, it'll have self-cooked to a Cool-Medium, as part of the process of post-grill heat retention.

To my plate, that perfect merge of Medium Rare into Medium is the Bliss Point for a quality steak.

When done perfectly, you really don't know whether to call it Medium Rare or Medium.

And yes, I do want that wee bit of crusty char on the surface, and a beautiful, bloody stripe in the middle. But a HOT beautiful, bloody stripe in the middle.

The perfectly done baked potato with a delightfully chewy, kosher-salted skin, loaded to drowning with unsalted butter and sharp cheddar is the perfect accompaniment to such a steak.

As is the ice cold pilsner glass of your favorite beer.

Any prisoner wise enough to order such as his last meal, deserves at least a few hours reprieve, so as to enjoyably digest such a repast.

Then, cook said prisoner at +10,00 volts AC, for two minutes, and serve to the undertaker when done.

Most people know this, but always make sure the steak is at room temp, not refrigerator temp, before it hit's the grill.

The lack of equipment doesn't help either. I remember when Huntspatch got their first real piece of snow equipment - a sand spreader that fit into the box of a dump truck. Replaced a guy with a shovel and a pile of sand in the bed of a pick-up truck. In the late 80s/early 90s.

Virginia Rep. Donald McEachin
Born: October 10, 1961 (age 58 years), Nuremberg, Germany

Part 2:

3/19/19 - https://wtkr.com/2019/03/19/northam-vetoes-sanctuary-cities-bill/

Immigrants rights groups scored a victory today when Governor Northam vetoed a bill that would have prohibited localities from restricting federal enforcement of immigration laws. The bill was considered an attempt to wipe out so called "sanctuary cities" which limit cooperation with federal immigration enforcement. Some cities in other states have refused to work with federal agents to hold immigrants to be deported, while one state, Arizona, gave local law enforcement power to act as immigration agents.

In a statement the Governor wrote "Police divisions across the Commonwealth have a long tradition of engaging in community policing strategies, and many have determined that it is more important to develop a relationship with immigrant communities in order to keep safe all of those who live within the locality." Northam also said the bill would send the message that "local law enforcement officials are to be feared and avoided rather than trusted and engaged."

Opponents of the bill argued it would limit immigrants cooperation with law enforcement out of a fear they would be turned over to ICE agents. They also claimed under current Virginia law it is nearly impossible to create sanctuary cities in the Commonwealth

339 True, the Argentines don't know much about beef or food, but they are known to use sauces like chimichurri with certain cuts/preparations. France likewise not much known for its cuisine, but there are bistros that do a steak in cognac-peppercorn sauce that is almost edible.


For the better filets personally I prefer just kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper too, but there are lots of great beef cuts and lots of great preparations.


There's a grilled flank steak recipe I love [and so far everyone else has too] where I have two very different sauces to drizzle across the thin cut across-the-grain slices - chimichurri and a chipotle-cream sauce.


It's fun finding ways to make the lesser cuts [that sometimes have more flavor] appealing.

342 OK, Gun Store Story.

Visited my favored store for Black Rifle gear, knowledge and expertise.

Full-on Class III dealer, she supplies many (most) of the local Cop Shops, with every kind of black rifle gear, from Precision Bolties and Optics down to every known aftermarket trigger link and backplate for a Glock as is known to exist.

She has forgotten more about an AR-15 or M-16, than any of us here, and I'll take the strongest challenger to that assertion to her store, and let you lose the contest.

So, I go in there today with a particular rifle in hand and task therewith for her gunsmith to accomplish.

I'm the only other customer in the store, and I'm waiting behind a guy who is counting out something over $17k in cash money.

For the order of a pair of Barret M-81 .50 cal Semi-Autos.

Transaction and paperwork complete, she tells him she'll have them in this Friday, they wrap up and he leaves.

She askes me to get his license plate out of the front window, which I do.

Short story long, she'd already texted her BATF rep, she had already Facebooked the customer's name and info, and had also noticed another gun-store's paperwork in his stack of papers.

Calls to ATF, Houston Gang Task Force and a few other exchanges transpire. I get Shanghai'd onto one of the calls to describe the driver of the car for the guy, said driver who never emerged from the car.

As the situation was as I left it.

He's pretty clearly a Cartel puke, shopping many Houston gun stores to take as many as ten Barretts back into the Badlands.

Three different agencies are now triangulating on his movements and actions.

He really was quite the hinky player, with bags of cash and a stated intent to buy as many as ten of those Barrett fifties.

I'll let y'all know what all happens, later, As the Barretts Turn.

In the battle with the left to prevent the installation of a political system that would result in utter failure two things have to be kept in mind always.

First, the country must remain united. Can't function as a Republic otherwise.

Second, we must return to governance as laid out in the blueprint--our Constitution. Otherwise all the struggle will be for naught.

359 As promising as Barr is, so far the administration as a whole continues its fecklessness/weakness on what is actually *the* biggest rule of law crisis - the "sanctuary" insurrection. The Keystone Coup is yuuuge and much sexier, but does not have a body count or a direct serious social cost.


The number of jurisdictions in insurrection, and the damage, have gone up dramatically, without pause, since the entrumpenation.


It's a jaw-dropping example of the arrogance, recklessness, and cowardice of the Uniparty in the Beltway and their counterparts in cities and state capitals, and Trump has not made any effort to politicize it [i.e. make it an unavoidable issue on which elected reps are forced to take votes and positions]. Of course the electorate just sits there and takes it, even if it opposes the vile idiocy by enormous bipartisan margins.

Who Is the Best Two Hit Wonder Band?

Two hits. No one ever thinks about the Two Hit Tyros. Once you have your second hit, a lot of people just forget about you.

For some reason, one hit wonders tend to be remembered.

It's hard to define what a One Hit Wonder is, and I imagine it's even harder to say what a Two Hit Tyro is.

Almost all "one" hit wonders technically have a second "hit," because the record company releases another single in the wake of the first big hit and the second song gets huge exposure and airplay and even charts. A bit.

But it's really just an obligatory follow-up release. It's not a hit on its own merit. It's a "timeslot hit," as they used to say about TV, when there were timeslots.

I mean, even one of the ultimate One Hit Wonders, The Knack, actually had a second semi-hit in the wake of My Sharona.

But pretty much I'm the only person in the world who even remembers their "follow-up hit," Good Girls Don't (But I Do). It's pretty much just me and Alan Hunter.

So anyway, if there's already argument about which one hit wonders are really one hit wonders, there's going to be twice as much argument about two hit wonders.

Still.

Easy Andy proposes Golden Earring as the best two-hit wonder band, with Radar Love in the 70s and Twillight Zone/Bullet to the Bone in the 80s.

Are there others?

As usual, this is a thread for discussion and debate only; no dueling or knife-fighting.

Who?

The Pina Colada Song.

But also: Him.

Him, him, HIM, what's she gonna do about HIM?
She's gonna have to do without him,
It's him or its me, me, ME, no one gets to get it for free.
It's me or it's him.

Him was a surprise hit, the B-side of the Pina Colada Song and if you play them in order, it's actually kind of dark.

As in, the guy and the girl were debating about breaking up, but stick together. Yay!

And then you flip the disc over and she's cheating on him.

Him is great because the intro verse is so specific.

A girl sitting next to me started digging around in her purse and set one on the edge of the stage rather surreptitiously. The bass player's eye's lit up, he walked up and snatched it.

A good time was had by all in attendance.

They also did "Square Pegs" which is probably a hit

They had great lyrics.

I also liked the song "Go on" for the lyrics

I liked him
He didn't like me
He was the greatest
I was only debris
Why do I always pick the ones
who are bad for me

He was coarse
But he was precision
I smelled money
It was by the television when I woke up
If I don't want to keep getting shot
why do I give 'em ammunition?

Oh no, not again
Another one that's crazy
Another one gets obsessive
Another one gets angry
Another one gets dependent
and thinks I have the answers

Another one with a coldness
that should have been a warning
I can't go on, I'll go on
I can't go on, I'll go on

We weren't desperate
I don't know what happened
I tried to change him
He only rarely hit me
Why when so many sweet ones would make it so easy

He was nice
I got brutal
He understood
I didn't kiss him
'Cause if he wants me
he must not be good enough

Oh no, not again
Am I a magnet for losers?
A net for the helpless?
I'm no social worker!
Why do I chase the faces
that always reject me?
Is there something else
that's as fun as running with trouble?
I can't go on, I'll go on

I prefer the English version.

This bothered me for a long time, because I spent years studying German, so that's the one I should prefer, right?

But upon reflection, I realized that what I enjoyed was the German accent, which is far more alluring that merely speaking German.

That being said, death metal is better in the original German.

389 Oh what the heck. Here's the lyrics to Yonkers Girl:

I met a little girl in Yonkers, not far from New Rochelle
And every Sunday evening within her home I'd dwell
I went to take a little walk through a dark and lonesome place
I drew a rail from off the fence and smashed her in the face

I then took out a piece of rope and I tied her to a tree
I said that I will kill you here if you won't marry me
I then took out my weeping knife, these words I will attest
I said 'if you don't marry me, I'll plunge it through your breast'

I then took out my 44 and I aimed it at her head
I said if you won't marry me then I will kill you dead
Then down upon her knees she got, for mercy she did cry
'Oh Donny dear, don't kill me here, I'm not prepared to die'

But I did not heed her mournful cries, I only beat her more
'Til the ground around my feet was covered with her gore
I took her by her long black hair and I drug her 'round and 'round
And I chucked her into the river that flows by Yonkers town

Go down, go down, you Yonkers girl, with a dark and blackened eye
Go down, go down, you Yonkers girl, I loved you on the sly
These words she said as she drifted by, they cut me to my heart
'Your love has changed, you are deranged, and now you and I must part"

Quarterflash was originally "Seafood Mama".

And lead singer Rindy Ross was exactly that. Yum.

Saw them as their big hit was climbing up the charts for the second time, at the Trout Lake Tavern in Trout Lake, WA, a tiny town just over the Columbia River about 2 hours east of Portland.

I have never seen so much cocaine in one place, at one time, consumed by so many people, anywhere.

But that was in '89 or '90, so most of those people are either dead or in witness protection now.

"All I Know," which is one of my favorite love songs of the 1970s; and his remake of "Since I Don't Have You," about 1979.

Herb Alpert had a number of hits, but is the only artist to have an instrumental song and vocal song both go to Number One.

Everyone of a certain age remembers "Rise" (1979's General Hospital Rape Theme Song) but in the 60s he sang "This Guy's In Love With You."

Train in Vain, Spanish Guns, Rudy Can't Fail, etc.

Simple Minds - y'all forgot Promised you a Miracle.

What about The Romantics - What I Like about You and Talking in Your Sleep.

Thomas Dolby didn't do One Night in Bangkok. He did do Hyperactive which was nominally a hit.

Maybe:

Oasis - Wonderwall and Champagne Supernova

Black Crowes - Hard to Handle and She talks to Angels

Counting Crows - Mr. Jones and Round Here

Somebody mentioned Tears for Fears - Shout and Everybody wants to rule the world. They also did Mad World, which got covered for the Donnie Darko soundtrack

Glen Frey (sans Eagles)- You Belong to the City and The Heat is On

Don Henley (also sans Eagles) - Boys of Summer and All she wants to do is Dance, though maybe Dirty Laundry was a hit.

The Pina Colada Song

OK, I'm going to vent. I had to take public transportation to high school (aka a bus) and they played this song incessantly on the radio. Over and over again. And, IMHO, it's not that they're thinking of breaking up, they're both looking around for someone new. Both of them. And let's be honest here: if you're in a relationship, and go out to meet someone else, and it turns out to be your current partner, I don't think "oh, it's you," will be your reaction.

More like "WTH? You're actively dating behind my back? Pack you bags now."

/or whatever people said in the late 70s.

505 I used to play in a band, and we once found ourselves playing in the same town as The Donnas at the short peak of their fame, ca. "Take it Off" and their SNL appearance.

After our gig we stumbled into a club where The Donnas happened to be having their afterparty. Lots of media, paparazzi and all that shit.

The bass player called it an early night, but the other three Donnas came over and asked we band we were in, sat with us for quite a while and shared all the comp-ed trays of shits they were getting with us. They asked if we had a CD and we gave them our demo to play on the tour bus.

Very nice, friendly and beautiful young ladies. It was a great night.

There is lots of really good Whitesnake before the Tawny Kitaen era. It was a blues band, with some of the members of Deep Purple. Sample:

New Coverdale is a poser. Old Coverdale is not.

/actually Coverdale is still doing the crotch grabbing shit he did in the 80's, which now makes him seem like a creepy long haired grandpa. And his coming from someone who loves old Whitesnake.

In the '70's and '80's, Boz recorded at Mussle Shoals Studios in Alabama. The building itself was a hole, but was the ultimate studio for many blues and rock artists to record there.

Their sessions musicians were legendary.

Ted Nugent comes to mind. Some kickass albums, though Double Live Gonzo sounds like it was recorded on a portable Craig cassette player. He had "Cat Scratch Fever" and maybe "Stranglehold" and that was about it.

They wanted to back out at first. Because, they saw all these white guys sitting around (the session musicians) and they had assumed (wrongly) all the guys they had heard on their recordings were black guys. It took some strenuous negotiations to convince the Stones that yeah, these really are the guys you're looking for.

Vacationed in Cabo in 2002, went to Cabo Wabo, owned (at the time anyway) by Sammy Hagar.

He came in one night, a weeknight in January, got up on stage and started playing with the house band. Then he went around to the maybe 50 or 60 people that happened to be there in the audience.

He was slamming the tequila with the same name as his bar.

He was funny and it was a great time.

But as "Adam and the Ants" he had a bunch on just 1 album Kings of the Wild Frontier

here were three hit singles from this LP, including "Dog Eat Dog" (reaching No. 4 on the UK singles charts in October 1980), "Antmusic" (No. 2 in January 1981) and "Kings of the Wild Frontier" (No. 2 in March 1981, previously No. 48 in August 1980). In addition, "Antmusic" made it to No. 1 in Australia for five weeks. In the UK, both "Antmusic" and "Kings of the Wild Frontier" were kept from the top spot by songs by the then recently murdered John Lennon.

I read somewhere that Take Me to the River paid them more in royalties from being used for the Billy Bass talking fish than from any other recording, by a large factor.

They were pissed off at first, but then, the royalty checks started flowing in, and suddenly, they were big fans of Billy Bass.

Great tune, but totally out of character for the band, which was a boogie and blues band. This song is much more characteristic of their style, and they survived for years doing that sort of thing:

I believe that was technically Adam & The Ants, not solo Adam Ant


I can recite almost every word of the lyrics of all of those, but I'm not sure any of them were 'hits' by any kind of US economic reckoning.

1174 994 I was hoping that Minnie Ripperton could make the cut, but, one hit.

Loving You and I Love the Nightlife.

I Love the Nightlife was Alicia Bridges. Also, as a point of trivia, Minnie Ripperton was the mother of SNL's Maya Rudolph.

"Hootie and the Blowfish "

I used to call them Hootie and the Suckfish.

SAGA was a fave back in the day, they had one hit, but other hitty songs, and were massive in Germany.

1178 Still don't grok why nobody liked The Knack.

Once in a Lifetime and Life During Wartime didn't hit top 40. Stupid charts.

Kerry Livgren and Dave Hope from Kansas became evangelical Christians, and that busted up the band. Livgren and Hope were part of the band AD.

I heard most of the songs on Supertramp's "Breakfast in America " album at one time or another, but sone that might be from listening to a classic rock station that really liked the band. The title cur, "Goodbye Stranger," and "The Logical Song" were hits when the album was first released, i think.

1284 First in the trivia thread!
Pollard (Michael J. R.I.P.) and I would sit around writing lyrics all day, talking about Bob Dylan and the Band, thinking up ridiculous plots for the movie. Before I left Morocco, Pollard wrote in my book The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys. For me, it summed him up. He had this tremendous rebel attitude. He walked around in his cowboy boots, his leather jacket. At the time he was a heavy little dude. It seemed to sum up all the people of that generation who were just rebels. The 'Low Spark,' for me, was the spirit, high-spirited. You know, standing on a street corner. The low rider. The 'Low Spark' meaning that strong undercurrent at the street level

1303 It is transparently clear that the best of the best of the best two-hit wonders are the chanteurs known to tout le monde as Milli-Vanilli. The totality of their commitment to their art was evident even so far as their evocation of the Predator (avatar and icon of mass culture and a rejection of Teutonic cries to get to the chappa)as their mode of self-presentation on the world stage.

Their lyrics speak to us even as they themselves eschew actually condescending to sing them, and in so doing accept the death of the author and their sad recognition of the inevitability of the same. The exquisite pain they voluntarily endure on our behalf looms from every syllable of "Oo, Ou, Ou, I love you.: (the third "ou" being the tell that resonates not unlike the mathematical precision of the golden mean). In the end, they proved to us that we, not they, were the ones not in synch. To their memory we light a votive candle in our hearts.

1372 Hey, a thread my nerd/music skills can weigh in on! As it happens I recently pulled the data of every 80's pop hit from the Billboard 100. Here's the breakdown of all *216* 80's Two-Hit Wonders and the songs they charted with:

1376 A couple that I thought should be two-hit wonders that have a third hit:

Edgar Winter Group had "River's Risin'" which topped at #33 on Billboard, to go with Frankenstein and Free Ride

The Royal Guardsmen had Snoopy vs. the Red Baron, The Return of the Red Baron and Baby Let's Wait (Snoopy's Christmas didn't chart on the top 100)

1378 1366 Shout out to naturalfake for taking my answer ABC with Poison Arrow and Look of Love.

The closest I came up with that isn't in this thread already is a cheat.

In the US I only heard from Madness the songs One Step Beyond and Our House. Looking at the wiki though it seems they were quite successful in the UK.
Posted by: justaguy at December 11, 2019 11:07 PM (mAfuD)

ABC also had Be Near Me and How to be a Millionaire.

You're absolutely right about Madness... awesome group, never got enough airplay in the US.

1381 Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing was their first hit. I have it on my playlist for car rides. The kids love it and are learning the bass and guitar parts.

Reckoning: Techno_Fog Posts Thread Quoting the Tweets of Those In the Media (Including the Fake Conservative AEI Media) Who Perpetrated Comey's and Schiff's Lies on the Public For Three Grueling Years

I'm not going to post them all -- there are a lot of bad actors, obviously -- but you can scroll through the Hall of Shame here.

Much of this has to do with the lie that the Steel "dossier" wasn't even part of the FISA application. Horowitz reports this is false -- the "dossier" was "central and essential" to the FISA warrant. A previous warrant application without the Steele lies had been rejected.

Schiff and the Deep Staters knew that the Steele dossier was a lie, but used it to get a warrant anyway -- requiring them to later deny that the Steele dossier had been included in the FISA application.

And there were a lot of Fusion Kens and Fusion Nats in the media willing -- nay, eager! -- to lie and lie to the public about this.

Others stake their journalistic reputations on the claim that most of the Steele dossier has been "verified"!

And they still haven't issued any retractions for their lies, and they never will.



Obviously, chubbalicious progressive manbaby Jonah Goldberg is on the list.

Couch!



And of course "Fusion Ken" Dilanian:



New York Times opinion editor and snarky Twitter liberal idiot Will Wilkinson:



CNN's second most beloved legal analyst, after Michael Avenatti, of course:



Fusion Jim Sciutto, former Obama staffer:



Fusion Nat, but, I mean, come on. This one is obvious and obligatory.



This idiot, who was in the DOJ for a very short period of time before deciding to trade on her alleged "expertise" to act as a Democrat spokesmoron on CNN:



Glenn Simpon's best friend and former partner Evan Perez, who, along with Carl Bernstein, Fusion Jim Schiutto, and NeverTrump's very own Walter Cronkite Jake Tapper:



Another ignorant CNN "journalist" who seems to do most of his reporting on Twitter:




Another obvious one: Shriveled spinster and envenomed femcel Jen Rubin:



And how about Brookings "ethics czar" Norm Eisen, who stopped working as a "non-partisan" working for Brookings to, um, join Jerry Nadler's partisan staff:



And here are some other people dunking on the "media experts" who have been wrong about literally everything.

And "wrong" puts it charitably -- I suspect many of them knew they were actively lying.



To be honest, I suspect it's because some of them are simply on Fusion GPS' payroll:



And some more clips from the hearings:



Meanwhile, Bill Kristol keeps insisting that it's three years ago, when he Was Somebody (sort of).

He retweeted the below picture, re-insisting on the Russia Collusion Conspiracy Theory that has been so thoroughly discredited by now, by Mueller, by Horowtiz, and, as Horowitz told us, by Christopher Steele's "primary sub-source himself."



But don't stop believing, Bill.

Ahoy!

11 Willowed from earlier, not mine but-This needs to go to Trump's camp-

Just to make sure this is clear:

Hillary Clinton's campaign worked with foreign governments to interfere with the 2016 presidential campaign, and she paid to create the dossier. The CIA and the FBI lied, falsified evidence, planted spies in the Trump campaign, and spied on Trump and his staff from 2015 until 2018.

Because of all of this, Trump needs to be impeached.

And they never gave a crap if they were right anyway. It's the narrative that counts to them and they own it and can push it at will. But that's WHY they HATE PDT. Because he fights back. And he inspires others I believe to do so as well. the people who gulped down all this cock are too far gone to save and I don't want to save them anyway. I hate them, especially the NT cuck patrol of White Claw. They have a special place in hell. The MFM did their job and got their biscuits and a tummy rub.

Didn't it used to be a thing that reporters got pissed off when someone "burned" them with lies or made them look stupid? That they would go out of their way to ruin someone or at least punish them for using a journalist?

24 Apparently 'no apparent bias' only works as a defense when Republicans are involved. When it was Hillary and her e-mails being investigated the 'bias' was in her favor as in: "No reasonable prosecutor..." or in changing "Gross Negligence" to "extreme carelessness", the former being prosecutable while the latter isn't. Convenient, isn't it?

75 Willowed apparently while typing, but I was impressed enough with the comparison that I'm posting it again:

--

This reminds me of the John Gray "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" claim, which went like this: Men talk about practical problems and seek practical solutions. Women, on the other hand, often talk just to establish rapport and seek emotional validation and fresh reaffirmations of closeness.

--

I was recently told something that made a lot of sense.

Women's thoughts are like spaghetti. Men's are like waffles.

You can't pull one noodle without affecting every other noodle, piece of cheese, sauce, spice, etc.

On a waffle, you can pour syrup into every space and, if you cut a chunk out of that waffle, the syrup in the other sections remain essentially unaffected.

Do with it as you will.

...When they weren't hedging with "the dossier is a rounding error compared with the damning balance of evidence against Trumpskaya." I think that chimera is the one I'd be happiest to see gored if these Russia postmortems weren't being (intentionally) drowned out by the Ukraine charade.

newspaper of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union right on the

Steven Pressfield's excellent novel Gates of Fire. While the 300 Spartans are marching to the Hot Gates, they meet a travelling salesman with a foreign accent. That phrase is the salesman's catchphrase.

The Spartans also get a good laugh out of him, because he has a sign on his cart that's supposed to read "Only the best service for you, my friend" but he effed up the spelling so it says "Only the best service for you, my foreskin."

It's an excellent novel. I've had three or four copies because people would borrow and steal them

213 I've been wondering for a while now why so many Leftrard twatterers kept insisting that the Steele Dossier "was completely validated" and that the FISA App "didn't rely on Steele at all anyway." Where on earth were they getting this (mis)info?

I finally realized it yesterday, after reading up on Nunes Memo (which Horowitz TOTALLY vindicated): they were all relying on ADAM SCHIFF'S " MEMO" that Schiff spewed out to refute Nunes -- and was (naturally) all lies, top to bottom.

I feel so stupid now. OF COURSE they all relied on Schiff, whom I never wasted time or breath on reading!

This is noteworthy. Horowitz is NOT saying he has ruled out political bias in the FBI's 17 Carter Page FISA errors. Q: "Can you say it wasn't because of political bias?" A: "I do not know."

That's as close to an apology as you will get from this crew.

Glenn Simpson was featured as a major character in the book "The Plot
Against the President". He was obviously not in the purview of this
Horowitz report. But I think Simpson, his hires, and his slimy
business practices are going to turn out to be major players (and
losers) in the upcoming Durham-Barr theater.

I go there today to cancel, kind of tough to find the link, but did so and clicked.

Amazon had a "we really don't want to see you go" messages, but after I clicked "cancel", a new message came up and said "add another month for free, just by clicking this link, and we will also notify you before you get charged."

I now have free Prime through the Christmas season, and until January 20.

Posted by: Rev. Dr. E Buzz Miller, Lesbian at December 11, 2019 08:36 PM (lg/F7)

289 Something occurs to me.

When someone is running a con, they often hire someone as a fake expert to assure the mark that everything is on the up and up. Say I'm trying to pass a fake diamond. I tell you "Baron Von Strindberg is a famous diamond expert!" when he's my friend in the wig and monocle.

But a better con is to get a real expert convinced the diamond is real, right? Then he passes any possible background check. Say show him a real diamond, which he verifies, then switch it with the fake. but it is still not perfect - the expert might just turn on you if he sniffs a con.

The best con is if you can convince the the real expert to advocate on your behalf, without him ever knowing it was a con. A great way to do this is to ratchet up the con.
Say start your friend in a wig and convince a low level expert the diamond is real. Then get that expert to convince another expert. And those two experts to convince a third. Play your cards right and you have a hundred experts telling everyone the diamond is real. they are all relying on the reputation of the entire business. "Diamond-r-us says it is real, and those guys are never wrong!"

Sometimes, if the ego is big enough, those experts will deny it was a con to their graves, because he could never be fooled, and 100 experts can't possibly be wrong.

I think we see all three versions here. Fake experts. real experts that were fooled, and real experts convinced to become advocates. The media were conned, straight up, by their sources. But having huge egos, being easily flattered, and hating the president, and having a herd mentality (well, maybe I'm wrong, but what about so and so with the Washington Post?").

And, lastly, in this case, it is absurdly easy since there is not fuckign diamond.

290 That is to say, there is nothing "real" to check. Just whispers and information. Shady information from secret sources. Fuck me - the easiest thing to fake in the world. Hire a few ex-FBI guys to convince some still employed FBI guys, who convince their superiors, who leak like sieves to the media.

Posted by: Yudhishthira's Dice

I've complained about this a lot, but Twitter is the most estrogenizing toxin known to man, or to half-man shmans as you see on the internet.

I have this weird affliction, called heterosexual masculinity, which keeps me from offering strident, childishly-intense opinions about womanly creature comforts and sundry num-nums.

I don't think people should have strident opinions about trivialities. Children have strident opinions about trivialities.

Men don't. Men are supposed to be wise enough to know which things are trifling, and which things deserve their concern, and express themselves accordingly.

If it's important, you say something.

If it's not important, you practice the most ancient of all manly arts, the Manly Art of Shutting the F*** Up Once in a While and Giving Your C***slappers a Rest.

I'm glad to know that there's a cure for this affliction of normal masculine reserve, how, and that Jonah Goldberg is proof of that.

Apparently, being on Social Media all day long is a cure for normal, regular heterosexual masculinity. It's a feminizing and juvenilizing force which turns toxic men into pliable weakling children and fat little girls trying to advance in the social hierarchy.

Does that mean men shouldn't talk about these things? No, of course not. It's just that men... we're goal-oriented. Or we used to be, before the Internet gave us permission to engage our innner prepubescent sexually-androgynous tween.

I had a question a few weeks ago about what Duncan Donuts coffee tastes great at the store but very meh at home, and asked about it in a comment thread; another commenter said "Maybe you just have to grind the beans yourself and use the pour-over to get the same flavor."

This is a short back-and-forth in which there is a clear goal, and a response that is directly, and briefly, directed towards helping me meet my goal. We did not use the opportunity to bond over it, nor did we use it as a segueway into complaining that our boyfriends don't buy us flowers frequently enough.

Compare that to Jonah Goldberg, JV Last, David French and the rest of the Twitter Mean Girls Half-Men Chitty-Chat Coffee Clatch, oohing and aahing like women every day on Twitter about their favorite kitchen appliances, and whining and bitching about which vegetables they continue having a manbaby aversion towards.

They're vegetables, Little Girls. They're not Twinkies. They're not supposed to taste nummy. At best, they taste pretty good, but in a particular way you have to cultivate a taste for.

And also, David French: Who the fuck gives a fuck whether you like kale or not? Why do you even care if you like it or not?

Why do you think anyone else cares?

I realize that this is a bit odd for a blogger to say, but I have come to a conclusion about opinions: People need to stop having so many opinions.

You know who has opinions about everything? Blowhards, assholes, and lunatics.

Sane people do not care one way or the other (or at least do not care enough to bother expending the breath and saliva necessary to say otherwise) about 95% of all the people, objects, and concepts in the universe.

But every "man" on Twitter seems to imagine that the world is just begging for their 8th grade mix-tapes of Stuff I Really Like or Don't Like At All (Pee-Yoo!).

If you don't like kale, don't eat it. What the fuck is this bullshit with alleged "men" sitting around in a little quilting bee talking about food and appliances and movies all day?

This reminds me of the John Gray "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" claim, which went like this: Men talk about practical problems and seek practical solutions. Women, on the other hand, often talk just to establish rapport and seek emotional validation and fresh reaffirmations of closeness.

This, he claimed, is why men and women are often frustrated with each other. When a woman complains about, say, work, she wants emotional support. She's not looking for some kind of practical solution like "Just update your resume and find another job," which is the sort of thing that a man would usually say (until he realizes that that's not what women want to hear).

So while men, such as myself and the commenters here, will talk about these things in the interests of actually getting something done, David French, Jonah Goldberg, JV Last and the rest of the low-T very-womanly half-men brigade are constantly babbling on twitter about their What's Hot and What's Not lists, and starting Twitter threads nominating things which are on their To Do list, or, more wickedly, their To-Don't list.

Also: This seems to be a tactic employed by betas (or lower than betas): to appear "cute," cute like children or cute like squirrels, rather than, you know, like men.

Little boys are cute, and act cute. Some men are lucky enough to be attractive, but if they act cute, act like little boys, I have a feeling that a lot of women quickly go from feeling sexual to feeling Saharan.

And I sit here thinking: What the hell is wrong with you? Are you... gender curious?

Are you this immature? Did Twitter and social media give you permission, in your view, to go back to the good old days of being a child?

To reset the system at -- what do IT guys call it? -- the Last Safe Configuration of your lives? The last time you felt secure and happy?

Did you "men" ever learn how to be men? Or did you learn once, but decide it was too "toxic," and so refashioned yourselves into Twitter-imprisoned metrosexuals and cloying little children?

Complaint:

I don't like kale.

Solution:

Then don't eat kale. Also, get the fuck off of Twitter if you have time to complain about kale. Do some squats in your spare time.

Complaint:

I don't like Indian food. (From Tom Nichols, who does not look like the sort of guy who would turn his nose up at any food that includes a lot of sugar and carbs.)

Solution:

Then don't get Indian food. Also, start intermittent fasting. You're grossly obese and it makes me sad to look at you.

Boast:

I just love my high-end espresso maker!

Solution:

Fine, I guess. Have some coffee. But also maybe consider the possibility that most men don't really enthuse over kitchen appliances, and maybe you should do likewise. (Note: grilling equipment is not part of the kitchen, obviously.)

Also, do some deadlifts. You're all hunched over like Gollum when he's masturbating furtively on a public bus. Some deadlifts might straighten you out a bit.

Am I wrong? Am I being too crochety, or am I guilty of enforcing Outdated Notions of Masculinity? Am I guilty of perpetuating Toxic Notions of Masculinity?

I don't think so. What about you guys?

And women, actually -- do you women ever look at these "men" babbling like little girls about Captain Marvel and think uncharitable thoughts?

But these "men" aren't exchanging information -- practical stuff like advice, recommendations, and recipes (actionable intelligence) -- but just to gab with the same shriveled low-t soybags they gab with every single day to further reaffirm that they remain emotionally-cherished members of the Twitter Mean Girls clique.

19 Ace, cart, horse.

Used to be you insulted a Man face to face, you took your own personal safety in hand. There could very well be PHYSICAL retribution.

Women, on the other hand, were primarily safe from physical retribution because most other Women would not punch them out, and if a Man did, OTHER Men would take care of him. So they were free to say pretty insulting things.

Now we have created a place, the internet, where Men are SAFE from physical retribution, and so now act more like Women did all along.

Women, on the other hand, often talk just to establish rapport and seek emotional validation and fresh reaffirmations of closeness.

Boy BFF (who can be waaaaay more of a girl than I am) and I agreed yonks ago to start convos about problems with a disclaimer of hey I'm just venting and need you to make affirmative noises now and then or hey this is a problem and I need your help with a solution.

It is absolutely stunning how much more effectively you can converse with a person when you make clear this is a bitch call vs omg what the hell should I do.

I presume, based on nothing but a WAG, that all the stupid bitchy cat fight stuff is a quest to hit mandated engagement numbers. Hey, have to get X number of retweets and likes and replies. Fine, here's a cute dog.

Again, that's just a WAG but still I think that is some of it. The rest is that they are 13 year old Mean Girls.

"My masculinity is in need of a giddy-up. So why don't you cut the theme music from "The Magnificent Seven" out of your musical corral and let it go for a good long gallop."

Several days later, she played the music but failed to mention the "My masculingity..." part.

45 I think there's a use for twitter but it does seem to bring out the old biddy in a lot of people

I don't think people should have strident opinions about trivialities. Children have strident opinions about trivialities.

Men don't. Men are supposed to be wise enough to know which things are trifling, and which things deserve their concern, and express themselves accordingly.


Sure, that makes sense. Its not just an awareness, its a lack of time and energy to focus on crap like that. Yes, a guy can appreciate a great meal and talk about it, but you know, while he's fixing the gutter, changing the plugs out in the car, or doing something else constructive, protective, or creative.

The biggest problem that we have in modern culture is too much freaking free time and entertainment. I mean, how many hours did I spend on here today? Like 8? Typing little messages on a blog comment section?

I got work done too, but it was so easy to do on my laptop I could do this stuff, too. And I don't have as much freedom and money as most.

People have so much energy and time for dumb crap they're fixated on the dumbest, most trivial crap.

So, yes, there are women whose brains are structured more like a man's and vice versa. It doesn't mean gender fluid or the like, it's simply that people exist on a continuum.

I actually recently went to my doctor for my once-per-decade checkup.

He took my blood pressure, looked puzzled and shocked, then called in a nurse to take it again, just to make sure. He then announced I had the blood-pressure of a "teenage marathon runner," the best he had even seen in his entire career. He then examined me and found nothing of note. No ailments or worrisome attributes. My weight was "exactly right" for my height. He then took blood samples -- and later emailed me to say that my levels were "outstanding" in every regard, and that "You couldn't be healthier. Perfect. I have no suggestions for improvement."

No pistol caliber measured in mm is manly, though the same is not true for rifle calibers.

267 First, is it OK to discuss straight razors? 'Cause I like shaving with them, and it is helpful to discuss them with others who do also. There is a little more to dealing with them than there is with a Gillette cartridge sold by SJW's who hate you. It's helpful to advice at the beginning. Also, you don't have to worry about your wife borrowing them. (But if she does use them for her shaving, well you have a special wife and that might make up for having your razors messed with.)
Second, as to the original query about why Dunkin' Donuts coffee does not taste good at home--I was told by someone who sells commercial coffee equipment that Dunkin' designs their coffee to be brewed extremely quickly for high production rates. They grind it very coarsely and design their brewers to slam the water through it. Only a little bit gets extracted from the beans. If you brew it in a regular brewer, I'm told, you will brew it more slowly and extract more from the bean. But you will not like the extra amount that is extracted. Not sure this is accurate, but it was the opinion of someone in the commercial coffee equipment business.

276 First, is it OK to discuss straight razors? 'Cause I like shaving with them, and it is helpful to discuss them with others who do also.

I would actually love to get a good straight razor. I've been promoting the benefits of using a shaving soap cake rather than a can of foaming goo for years now, probably should go all-old school.

Might take a while to learn to use though, I don't fancy cutting dime-sized piece of my face off while I figure out how to shave properly.

283 the masculine talk about things like Kale is what is going on in Youtube. The vegans are nuts for it, but they add sugar and honey and soy and nuts to it. The meat heads on youtube point out that it's actually a poison, an anti-nutrient, and that it's probably bad for you.

Why are you eating kale? Because MSNBC ran a featurette on how it's a super food?

maybe think for yourself.

The meat heads are basically at the point where there's no reason to eat anything non meat, which is funny. But at least we're exchanging information.

If you're attending a conference and everyone's livetweeting the breakout sessions that you weren't able to attend, while you're livetweeting yours, it's not bad. The old 140 character limit made it important to get right to the point. Since you're following the conference hashtag as well as your team's handles, you get a scrolling log of the relevant points from the presentations. It's a lot like reading along here, while people on a thread are commenting on a PDT rally that you aren't able to watch.

No idea why anybody would do it for fun though, unless they were following Iowahawk in 2013 or something.

i've heard you have to cook it to get rid of the oxylates or something, which I heard were bad for you.

I usually have it raw in salads, though. I don't know I would bother to actually cook it. Like, I don't know if I like it enough to expend any effort on it.

But your recipe sounds good.

Cook it with Bacon, then throw out the Kale and eat the Bacon.

Veggies are fine, but some plants set themselves up defense to deter being eaten - poisons, spines, and the like. At some point you need to find something easier to eat and go with that.

306 I just finished reading an article about the Raiders playing their last home game in Oakland this Sunday.

Having not watched a single game in three years, I did not know this until now.

The NFL killed any enjoyment a while ago, thanks to their anti-American antics. Al Davis was right in hating the NFL, and he'd have even more reason now.

All that said, I can't help but feel bittersweet about an end of something that meant a lot to me, my dad, and so many others who got to see them at the height of greatness, so long ago.

I have two lovely Solingen straight razors. I gave myself five or six months to get the technique down. Eventually I gave up.

326 right, it may have been tufano or another meat head who pointed out that if you want to be eating like a vegan, then you're on a constant food drip of low nutrition fruits/veggies.

But, in the days of old, you had to compete with bugs, deer, varmints, apes, and whatever to get to the fruit first. And most people had better things to do than sit in trees all day waiting to get ripe fruit.

like hunting the things that eat fruit and turn it into meat.

They do their job...making meat from their full time job of finding fruit, and we do our job, eating them.

and you can see that today from the vegan food prep videos...go to whole foods and spend $20 on lunch.

my neighborhood is served by the worst UPS location in America. They'll fake deliver things, say that you weren't there and return the thing. So...yeah, UPS says it was delivered but they actually mean, we checked the box but we'll deliver it later this week.

9mm is okay if you only need to kill Frenchmen or other Europeans, but if you need to kill (for example) drugged-up Filipino Muslim suicide fanatics running amok, you need something with a bit more authority.

I'll disagree with that:

Discussion of the best nail clippers: manly. Cuz good for man's hygiene and best tool.

Discussion of the best straight razors: unnecessary affectation for inferior results. That makes it girly.

Discussion of the best razors: manly. Cuz you don't want to use Gillette and yet you still want a clean, smooth shave.

370 Second, as to the original query about why Dunkin' Donuts coffee does not taste good at home--I was told by someone who sells commercial coffee equipment that Dunkin' designs their coffee to be brewed extremely quickly for high production rates. They grind it very coarsely and design their brewers to slam the water through it. Only a little bit gets extracted from the beans. If you brew it in a regular brewer, I'm told, you will brew it more slowly and extract more from the bean. But you will not like the extra amount that is extracted. Not sure this is accurate, but it was the opinion of someone in the commercial coffee equipment business.
Posted by: pincorrect at December 11, 2019 07:12 PM (3LmBI)


No, any coffee company wants to maximize the amount of drip in each batch. Coffee is expensive, water isn't.

So the idea is to keep the grounds soaking in water as long as possible. Fast brewing just leaves some of the flavor behind. Newer brewers are computer controlled and many have settings to put 8 to 12 ounces of water on the grounds, stop the water for a pre-determined amount of time (30 seconds to 3 minutes), and then slowly drip more water.

And coarse instead of fine grind means even less flavor out of a batch of beans. Use coarse grind for a French Press, where the coffee sits a long time in the water.

Bitterness in brewed coffee comes from using old, stale beans, or brewing at the wrong temperature.

I roasted and sold well over 50,000 pounds of specialty coffee, and had over 100 commercial accounts using Curtis, Bunn, Fetco, and other commercial brewers. That I installed and maintained.

Most of everything I heard from a customer about coffee was simply wrong. But I kept my mouth shut and made them a long term customer, anyway.

Store coffee, especially ground, has been sitting on the shelf for usually months, and is stale as can be the second you open the package.

371 I know this doesn't belong with the okra topic but, does anyone in here have a good strong guess as to what is Q? I have become so jaded that I suspect it is just a deep state operation to passify Trump supporters into complacency and believing that justice is coming.
Posted by: Floridachick at December 11, 2019 07:02 PM (D+6+2)

I haven't followed it much but it seems more like an op by someone self important rather than official op. It keeps them discussing deep state stuff, but actual info that isn't basic knowledge from the news feed seems minimal or absent. Q or the Qs are like swamis dispensing blessings on the flock.

I would think an actual deep state op would try and get them away from talking about the deep state at all.

372 Oh, I missed the comments about cooking appliances. Yeah, I usually don't talk about those. But lately the missionaries in the Weird Sky Religion cult are going after gas stoves. My plumber, when he was hooking up the stoves in my new kitchen, mentioned they have more BTU's that most whole house furnaces. So now I like to think I'm personally responsible for 0.01 degrees of the increase in the planet's temperature. Makes me wish I could have fit in that 150k btu wok range.

No one...NO one knows how they will react in an emergency. Adrenaline is powerful, powerful stuff, so is the instinct for self-preservation.

The only counter to the above (I use 'counter' advisedly) is training, training, training. All well and good, but the nature of the emergency may well not be anticipatable.

I'm sort of into it and have a little knowledge of the topic. Need to get an espresso maker, have just about every other technique down already [Turkish, Vietnamese, French press, pour-over]. Had an espresso machine years ago, I was shocked at how good it was, would like that option at home again.
