Overnight Open Thread (6 Nov 2015)

Looks like the WaPo does not want to let Politico steal the limelight on sliming Republican candidates.


Taxpayer Funded Stadiums

The real reason cities finance sports stadiums.

From 2000 to 2009, American taxpayers spent $8 billion to help construct 31 new stadiums for privately owned professional sports teams. But the payback on these investments is minimal in terms of job creation and income generation. When Santo looked at a proposal to bring professional baseball to Portland, Oregon, he found that the income generated by spectator sports in Portland, even with the addition of the new baseball team, added up to less than 1 percent of payroll citywide.

Parenting PSA

So how savvy are you on teen code words? Looks like one code fits the ONT. GYPO.

Spiders w/ Lightsabers

Gun Violence Research

So democrats want to lift the ban on the CDC from conducting gun violence research. Seems to me that would be a waste of money as the FBI already has a database and guns aren't a disease. What would be more useful is if the FBI actually allowed the tracking of information pertaining to a certain type of perpetrator that somehow gets left out of all kinds of criminal data tracking from guns, DUIs, murder, rape, etc.

Death Stat Of The Week

Drug overdoses killed more Americans than guns or car crashes.

Threats

Report: US increasingly vulnerable to potentially catastrophic EMP attack. Actually, we're increasingly vulnerable to a great many things thanks to feckless leadership.

Jetman Airliner Form Flight

Question of the Day

Alright morons, is a hot dog considered a sandwich?

California

California pension systems stand to lose millions by divesting from coal. It just means it'll go broke just that much sooner or Californian taxpayers will have to fork over more money.

Pot Energy Drain

I would think they would be using "green" energy to power their pot lights as I'm sure they are probably democrats and believer's in AGW. Marijuana grows causing blackouts in Oregon.

Maritime Militia

China's 'Little blue men' takes Navy's place in disputes. Quite the ROE conundrum. Plus every single one of those vessels will report your position back to HQ.

Yes. Why is a sandwich a difficult concept?

It just means it'll go broke just that much sooner or Californian taxpayers will have to fork over more money.

The latter always seems to be the default CA option.

20 The Carson hits are loathsome, especially given that they are undoubtedly oppo research dropped from within the GOP tent.

My only interest at this point is WHO dropped it. I've seen Jeb's name floated, but I read that he was defending Carson.

Trump surely wants to knock Carson down a peg, but his style seems to be more directly confrontational.

This sort of weaselly crap reminds me of some of the turds working for Rubio, who surely would like to see Carson knocked out of the race.

But I've also noticed Cruz's former communications person, Amanda Carpenter, expressing a lot of *concern* about this story. She's ostensibly "just asking questions" but keeping the damned thing alive long after its expiration date.

If it turns out to be from Cruz's camp, he can kiss my vote goodbye.

I never watch him. Pompous blowhard is the polite description of him.

A guy from Stockton, Ca comes to the owner of a really nice on-the-boardwalk condo in South Mission Beach (part of San Diego) and says:

"I want you to give me the use of the condo for two weeks in late August for free."

The owner is shocked. She says: "Why should I give you the use of the condo during high season for free?"

He (Spanos) replies: "I'm your best customer!"

203 That study in the sidebar about "women are bisexual" just agrees with previous findings. I guess it's making the rounds because it's new.

At any rate, it seems to be men are either straight or gay, while women are bisexual in what arouses them.

And it's just that arousal patterns, not what they'd actually do in real life, just keep that in mind.

Men and women are very different sexually, in terms of all the brain stuff going on. While the end product is the same, screwing, how they get there are very different.

There are some evolutionary psychology explanations for "flexible female" sexual attraction, but all those seem a little cut and dried to me, explaining things after the fact. When it can predict behavior not observed before, then I'll be impressed.

Bonobos, our closest relative (genetically along with chimps, although they say were likely closer in other ways, but this is not my wheelhouse so I don't really know) are like that. Female bonobos are highly bisexual, with the females frigging each other all the time.

237 Duke's Mayonnaise is a condiment created by Mrs. Eugenia Duke of Greenville, South Carolina, in 1917. While it is the third-largest mayonnaise brand in the United States (behind Hellman's and Kraft), its popularity is largely limited to the south, because those undeserving shits from the north don't have good taste. It is used in regional favorites such as tomato sandwiches, cole slaw, and potato salad. Duke's Mayonnaise contains more egg yolks than other mayonnaise products and no added sugar, giving it a tangy flavor.

Puree the garlic in a blender or food processor. Whisk the yolks together in a bowl, add to the garlic and then the lemon juice, mustard and salt and pepper and make a smooth paste. Pour the oil very slowly in with the machine running (if you are using a processor. I use a blender and add the oil slowly, blend, add a bit more, blend and so on) continue to blend until you have a nice, thick sauce.

292 Although it's one of those things you're not supposed to say, male homosexuality is one hell of a disease vector. The anal shit is the big one.

Posted by: Grampa Jimbo at November 06, 2015 11:24 PM (1ijHg)


Wasabi is a root like ginger. It isn't as sharp as horseradish and has certain floral qualities about it. It is hard to grow and on the expensive side. Unless you see a green root being shredded before your eyes, it's probably not real wasabi.

While there are many accrutimonts one can add to a Bloody Mary, the basic recipe is:

Freshly squeezed tomato juice
Vodka infused with tomato
Vodka infused with black pepper
Worstershire
Tobasco

Ratio of tomato juice and vodka infused with tomato varies, but not more than a pony of black pepper vodka, and less than than of the worstershire and tobasco.

316 Malt Vinegar is the best topping for french fries, other than salt. Great on fish too, but fries especially.

I like plain old white vinegar on French fries, and that is served pretty well everywhere in Canada that sells french fries. A few places might offer malt vinegar as well. Of course, you have to have salt with the vinegar. Cuts the grease, it does.

323 The purist in me says only mustard and onion on hot dogs, but the part of me that has been to Chicago says that "Chicago style" has a lot to recommend it, as well. That is mustard, sweet relish, onions, a dill pickle wedge, sport peppers and tomato slices. Portillo's is the largest chain that serves an authentic Chicago hot dog, and in addition to locations in Chicagoland, they also have a few franchise locations in SoCal now too. The hot dogs themselves are Vienna Beef brand, which is good, but there are others out there that are almost as good. Hebrew National is OK. I am also fond of "natural casing" hot dogs, but the various brands of those tend to be distributed only regionally or even locally, so a good brand from one part of the country is almost always unheard of anywhere else.

The other great sandwich from Chicago is called an Italian beef, but you have to get one from one of the "Big Three" (Al's, Portillo's or Mr. Beef) to understand what that is all about. Portillo's does ship frozen Italian beef kits all over the country, fortunately.

324 256: That's too ambiguous. Define "vile affections" and "against nature". They could be talking about "pegging", that would be vile to me big time.

The best argument I've seen is at the time, men were the ones who initiated sex (well, we know that's not likely 100% true, but that was the assumption), and thus lesbianism was impossible because that would require at least one women to do the initiating. Thus there was no need for specific prohibitions.

That's the best argument, IMHO.

The US doesn't enforce appellation rules, so potentially, that's true. Japan does. So if an importer is buying Kobe Beef from a Japanese source, it's is probably authentic.

On the other hand, 'wagyu' livestock can be raised anywhere. It just refers to the variety of livestock IIRC, 'Wa' meaning 'peace', aka Japan, and 'gyu' meaning 'beef/bovine.'

361 Keep in mind these studies measure arousal objectively, not what people say turns them on. People notoriously lie about what turns them on, and the lying is likely more to themselves than to others.

If an image turns a person on, there will be a measurable physical response, and that's what these types of experiments measure.

In these experiments, the population of women show a bisexual arousal patter, while men are polar, either women turn them on and not men, or vice versa.

And the biggie is that arousal does not translate to what a person would actually do by a wide gulf.

373 In these experiments, the population of women show a bisexual arousal patter, while men are polar, either women turn them on and not men, or vice versa.

Not necessarily bisexual. Men and women have different patterns and triggers of arousal - some shared, but some different. A woman might become aroused by seeing a beautiful naked woman not by her, but by association and thinking about what it means and memories of being naked, etc.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at November 06, 2015 11:55 PM (39g3+)

374 And another thing about these arousal studies. In absolute levels, men are much, much more aroused by visual stimuli that women are. And that agrees with what you see in real life of course.

Hook a man up to some MRI machine to get those images of his brain and show him a picture of a nekkid woman. You'll see areas of his brain concerned with that light up like crazy.

Women, not so much. Things light up a little bit, but nothing like men do.

I mentioned aioli (garlic mayo) earlier. It goes really well with sweet potato fries. I wouldn't put it on regular fries though. McD's fries always tasted better to me without any accompaniment.

402 373: Yep, that's possible, but it means that "mode" of arousal is something unique to women, which is not seen in men at all. I mean, which I see a picture of a naked man, I don't want to see it. Get that shit out of my sight. Show me naked women, and I get that silly smile on my face and enjoy the hell out of it.

Nothing there at all reminds me of being naked with a woman and therefore aroused.

Now, in these studies, the same pattern is seen with women who swear up and down they are "gold star" lesbians, only like women and don't want anything to do with a man at all. Even those women show the same bisexual arousal pattern statistically.

403 I'm of the opinion that, yes, a hot dog is a sandwich. It's a piece of meat and a piece of bread combined to form a whole greater than the sum of its parts.

You could argue that the type of bread used on a hot dog is different from that of a sandwich, but I would point you to the submarine sandwich, which basically uses a bigger version of a hot dog bun; nobody would argue that that's not a sandwich.

Like other sandwiches, a hot dog can be eaten with your hands or served open-faced and smothered with chili or gravy or queso or some other type of sauce.

If a hot brown is a sandwich, for example, then a chili dog also has to be considered a sandwich.

Trump surely wants to knock Carson down a peg, but his style seems to be more directly confrontational.

This sort of weaselly crap reminds me of some of the turds working for Rubio, who surely would like to see Carson knocked out of the race.

But I've also noticed Cruz's former communications person, Amanda Carpenter, expressing a lot of *concern* about this story. She's ostensibly "just asking questions" but keeping the damned thing alive long after its expiration date.

That's true, but it's also true that women can appreciate another woman's beauty for entirely aesthetic reasons without sex entering into it. I can see a picture of a young Liz Taylor or Catherine Denevue and think "wow, she was gorgeous!" without wanting to sleep with her. It's like looking at a beautiful painting.

Men don't often acknowledge other men's good looks in the same way (maybe because they don't want to be mistaken for ghey). I think the equivalent might be men acknowledging other men's strength or athletic capabilities. Men have no problem saying "Lord is that guy strong/fast/coordinated" and nobody thinks that means they want to boink the dude.

Man, there's a vast gulf between Cruz and Obama. Obama was born in Hawaii of an America-hating mother, and and America-hating Kenyan student (allegedly, at least), and then adopted by Momma's #2 husband, and spent his formative years in Indonesia.


Cruz was born in Calgary of an American mother, living there with her Cuban immigrant husband, working in the oilpatch. And back in the day, you couldn't turn around in the Calgary oilpatch without bumping into a U.S. citizen. And U.S. radio can be heard here, and U.S. TV channels are on the cable. So the Cruz family could easily keep current. And young Ted always had his U.S. citizenship; he just also had Canadian citizenship by reason of birthright.


Cruz is an American patriot. Obama is an America-hating quasi-alien.

There is a big pine mushroom gathering industry in northern British Columbia. Mushroom buyers park trucks, or rent storefronts in towns like Smithers, Hazelton, and Terrace, and hordes of mushroom hunters scour the forests and mountainsides for the delectable fungi, which are exported to Japan, and maybe China, too. Gunshots have been exchanged over contested 'shroom-hunting turf.

I had some ginormous mushrooms growing in my yard here in Alberta this summer. Flat tops as large as a pie plate. And some big puffballs, too. I know the young form of the latter are edible.

516 Grampa Jimbo


Was your nice serious in thinking altho God was not being nice to her because she was having a bad day, or was she just in a complaining mood?.. We can all complain Howerver if she was serious, it's probably not a faith that's going to be beneficial to her. We all have bad days; We get a flat, the water heater breaks, people treat us badly. Yes. sure these little things are annoying but it's part of life. Scripture says "In this world you will have trouble." (NT) or "Man is born to trouble as the sparks fly upward" (OT). It's not God's job to smooth our every little wrinkle in life; God's certainly not doing that for everybody else. For the Christian the goal of the Christians life is to through the Holy Spirit to help us become more like Christ and in the next to enjoy God's presence and give us whatever work/rest we have there.

Unless she's having major ongoing problems than I think her complaining about God not being nice to her is a little silly and even Job who was having major problems said "Though he slay me iI will trust him." That's very hard when things are going very badly, but she didn't have a happy day?! Com'on

Her's an article about not confusing God with life. I thin it's a good one:

And even if she did go to church the previous day she might still have a bad day. The Apostles went to "church" (at least they hung out with Jesus) and almost all of them suffered and died before they entered glory.

546 And men *do not* show the bisexual arousal pattern at all. It's only women. Gay men are a small percentage of the male population and that shows up in these experiments. The vast majority of men are aroused only by women. And a small percentage of men are aroused *only* by other men.

Men who claim to be bisexual are found to be gay on the arousal meter.

So a man, not gay, who says wow, is that guy fast, strong, good, does not show any arousal from naked man.

These experiments measure *sexual arousal*, which is a physical state that can be objectively measured.

Women, whether they claim to be straight, lesbo, or bisexual statistically show the bisexual arousal. Men, on the other hand, statistically divide into two groups. The vast majority are sexually aroused by women, and a small group is sexually aroused by men.

So the "appreciation of another member's of the same sex looks, talents, etc. but in a non-sexual way acts differently in men and women. With women that non-sexual appreciation shows up as physical sexual arousal, but in men, it does not.

And on the other hand, you have men who claim to be gay and display physical arousal patterns in agreement, but you have women who claim to be lesbo only, show the same bisexual physical arousal behavior as the general female population, in disagreement with their claims. No detectable differences, statistically, with the general female population.

Sexual arousal is a physical state, a specific state that can be objectively measured. If you are being moved greatly emotionally by some piece of music say, some beautiful painting, or what not, that doesn't show up as sexual arousal.

We had absolutely no such desire - we were deliberately hamming it up for the boys!

I think misunderstanding arises because women can hug and kiss and get physical with each other in a way men can't. Well, you know what? The sexes are different that way. If you saw two guys hugging and kissing each other on the cheek and smiling with heads together, you'd certainly think ghey. You don't get- or some of you don't get - that women can do that without being sexual.

582 This weekend, 650 Barnes-and-Noble stores are having an event branded as a "mini-Maker-Faire". Since I can pretty much walk to my local store, I checked 'em out a couple of times today. It's not all that, but it ain't nothin' neither. Being a brainstorm of nerds and corporate marketing geeks, it often missed the point or went off on tangents (3D printing -- there's the regular kind that uses PLA plastic at reasonable temperatures, and then there's the light-cured resin type. Things we focus on: the resolution is better in the resin version so you get a smoother surface and they're slightly faster to print. Things we don't focus on: a PLA 3D printer starts at $350, a resin bath printer starts at about $10,000; resin bath prints come out coated with toxic waste and need decontamination before you can safely touch them; after you get a resin-bath print out, you need to further cure it to achieve full hardness......)




They had Legos for the kiddies, snap-circuits for the bigger kiddies, make catapults from plastic spoons, rubber bands, clothes-pins, and tongue depressers for bigger kiddies (OK, I was miffed that I missed that).....




IMHO, it has promise.

That, and he was also mad at all the talk and no do, people posting but no "demanding" their government quit all the crap.

Now, if everybody, a significant percentage, went into the same "don't feed the beast" mode, it would make a big economic impact. But it would be hard for a lot of people to do, even if they wanted to.

622 Yes, consistently great writing. Soooo many quotable lines...


Donna, the main reason is that the better ones sound amazing AND have historical value. Although it is also true that we are in the midst of a renaissance in the art of instrument building. The modern makers are very good.

Soundwise, it has to do with the way the molecular composition of the wood changes over time. As the exposed surfaces oxidize, they harden, and most violins are at their acoustic peak when they are over 200 years old.

My cello just turned ten and a half.

One theory is that, because violins were strung at a lower (pre-steel strings) tension at that time, they cound be made thinner, and were thus more responsive. Then, as tensions came up years later, these thin violins were now hard enough (thanks to decades of oxidizing) that they were able to take the higher pressures associated with the new strings, and do it without caving in.

But that's just one theory.

Posted by: Bruce With a Wang! at November 07, 2015 02:53 AM (iQIUe)

624 Another point: the tops and backs are not uniformly thick, but rather are graduated in thickness, with the thinnest parts of each plate being out near the sides of the instruments. Advances in measuring technology and computer simulation have helped people work out just exactly how to graduate the tops for optimum response, often to the point that new violins can rival the strads even to the ears and fingers of concert artists.

But there is nothing quite like being in the same room with one of these old instruments in person. They have seen a lot.

That's actually a complicated question. "Hands-on" knowledge is actually revered, and experience is honored.....within limits.




It actually goes back to a serious face-to-face discussion between Arbalest and me.....we were talking about dividing heads and making gears.




The old-fashioned method is that you have a specially made plate where you turn it 15 holes and put a pin through an alignment point, then do a pass with a mill. To make a 127-tooth gear, you do this 127 times. Arbalest tells me that you "get into the zen of it".



My take (which comes from accounting systems) is that there are "people things" to do and "computer things" to do, and the more you have people doing people things AND NOT DOING COMPUTER THINGS, and computers doing computer things AND NOT DOING PEOPLE THINGS, the better off you will be. I consider analog dividing heads to be an abomination.




Then, again, a while back there was a presentation on grinding camshafts that I thought was awesomesauce on toast -- totally analog, but beautifully reproducible.




So, basically, machinists who had a bit of flexibility on the automation side of things but who could bring insights into materials and methods would do well......while machinists who stiffly insisted on manual methods while reading feeds and tool paths from guides might not.

Many orchestras own these rare and very expensive instruments and loan them to their musicians. It's a privilege and an honor.

One musician in my neighborhood had the use of a 2 million dollar cello. Coming home after a performance, he unloaded his car but forgot to bring the cello inside. In the morning, he saw that it was gone. They offered a large award. Security tapes in the area showed a kid in the alley trying to ride away on a bicycle with the cello under his arm. It was returned in a week.

(5%).....but I have no idea which.Posted by: cthulhu at November 07, 2015 02:19 AM (EzgxV)


Diablo is a video game.

Stay awhile and listen.

644 The question was, Would it be worth the trouble to get the License for a project that might not bear any good results?

I'll add that to the firsts I have been accused of here though. It will look good on my resume.

Better (and easier) would be to just make a reliable 22 magazine that holds about 40 or 50 rounds. There's no reason this doesn't exist (the PMR-30 has 30 rounds of 22 mag).

Of course, this was a much better idea back when 22LR was less than 4 cents a pop in bulk ... but ... at 10 cents apiece the caliber is close to useless.

Umm No. I'm not ATF. To possess or own any Weapon capable of firing fulling Automatic you need a Federal Firarms Dealer License. Both myself and my Machinist would need one if we ever wanted to produce one.

Why would it be trolling?

Posted by: Tim in Illinois Old, Uniproved and TRUMP! for Emporer 2016 at November 07, 2015 03:51 AM (WVsWD)




Because you could easily modify a designed-as-automatic design that had been crippled-to-semiautomatic to be automatic without attracting much attention, but applying for TWO Dealer Licences would certainly run up a flag.

Posted by: cthulhu at November 07, 2015 04:04 AM (EzgxV)

648 BTW, I meant a standard sized pistol magazine (like a double stack 40 magazine) above ... in case anyone was confused.

Of course, there's something extra-funky about 22LR pistols since you have to search far and wide to find anyone offering 22 pistol mags that hold more than 10 rounds, which is a total joke, of course.

As I said, Both the Machinist and I would need the License. No way around it. I don't have the hand to eye coordination anymore to do the fine work. My friend stated that there is no way on God's Green Earth he would want to test it.

Neither one of us would want to try to modify an existing Weapon. You are talking about a whole lot of permissions to get from the Patent Holders.

Let's make this very simple.....if anyone were to proceed in the direction you recommend, they will more likely than not be visited by the ATF, all weapons seized, and face criminal and civil charges. You keep advocating for this course of action....and it looks more and more that you're trolling for the ATF.

657 I think I remember something about a "bumpfire stock" for the classic Ruger .22.

IIRC, BATF came down hard on a guy selling them, even after he got some letter of approval from them.

The dispute is over "one pull of the trigger" firing more than one round. They claimed that with a bumpfire stock, this wasn't violated, since the trigger had to pulled for each round, just using the recoil effect in a specially designed stock to allow you to pull and release that trigger very fast.

I don't know what the law really is, but I know I wouldn't mess with anything like that.

I haven't seen any 22 at Walmart for a very long time. I used to love shooting 22s. A few bucks and you could go wild for hours. Now ... it just sucks. I have no idea what the hell happened to it all. it isn't hoarding at this point. The feds aren't buying it, I don't think. The manufacturers claim that they are turning out tons of it ... but I can't find it (other than overpriced internet stock).

The death of the 22 (at least, to me) is a real shame.

Designing and producing a workable firearm is, indeed, a worthy project.....but unless it's a single-shot gizmo within certain parameters, it will gain you some unwelcome attention from one of the least Constitutional bureaucracies in the Federal government.

664 So, I just had a panic -- I had bought four little thin-cut steaks for dinner tonight (total weight about 0.8 lbs.) and I only remembered cooking two. So I checked. When I saw the wreckage, I remembered that I had eaten the first two with "James T. King's Barbecue Sauce".....which is a bit unusual and I'd appreciate confirmation from the NC crowd if it's even real.




The second two steaks were served with Black Dog Gourmet "Dog-Gone-Good Chicken + Rib BBQ Sauce" which was outstandingly tasty.

If being cured of a disease due to past aborted fetal research "justifies" future abortions, than would not a disease being cured by genocide justify future genocides?

Scary, though, that this is happening during a twitter spat wherein using past research from aborted fetuses to justify abortion is totes different from using past research from genocide to justify genocide...

Mendes manages to put a lot of action and spectacle in a movie that is well-paced. The photography is just as gorgeous as Skyfall, but a different DP and shot in 35 mm.

I will have to watch it again before I rank it against the other Daniel Craig movies.
