One of the ONT's favorite Holiday baked goods is fruitcake. Yes, fruit cake. Mamma Misanthropic use to make it for Papa Misanthropic and her favorite son. Now Mrs. Mis. Hum. makes it using the same old time tested recipe from The Electric Company-Home Service Bureau 1954 cookbook.

Dark Fruit Cake

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
5 eggs
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup sour milk
1/4 cup grape juice
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon mace
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 pound citron
1/2 pound chopped pitted dates
1/2 pound candied orange peel
1/2 pound candied cherries
*1 1/2 seeded raisins
1 pound seedless raisins
1/2 pound almond slices
1 pint brandy or your choice of whiskey or rum.
New clean cotton dish towels (Flour sack towels)
*Optional


1. Have ingredients room temperature
2. Line greased pans with waxed paper. Grease paper.
3. Cream butter well. Add sugar gradually.
4. Add eggs one at a time. Beat well after the addition of each. Add molasses, sour milk and grape juice.
5. Dredge fruit and nuts with part of flour.
6. Sift remainder of flour, spice and baking soda together. Combine with first mixture. Add floured fruit and mix well.
7. Spoon into pans
8. Bake at 275 degrees. See time chart below.
9. Makes about 7 pounds
**10. Soak dish towels in brandy.
**11. Wrap completely cooled cakes in brandy soaked towel. Wrap with cellophane wrap, then aluminum foil and place in cool dry location for 2-3 weeks. Dig in and enjoy.

** Mamma Misanthopic's special touch.

1-2 pound fruit cakes-about 90 minutes per pound
2-4 pound fruit cakes-about 60 minutes per pound
4-8 pound fruit cakes-about 45 minutes per pound
8-12 pound fruit cakes-about 30 minutes per pound
Over 12 pound fruit cake-about 20 minutes per pound


What goes well with fruit cake? Eggnog of course!! Remember, if eggnog was good enough for General George Washington, it is good enough for you.

Here is his recipe for eggnog.

One quart cream, one quart milk, one dozen tablespoons sugar, one pint brandy, 1/2 pint rye whiskey, 1/2 pint Jamaica rum, 1/4 pint sherry—mix liquor first, then separate [a dozen] yolks and whites of eggs, add sugar to beaten yolks, mix well. Add milk and cream, slowly beating. Beat whites of eggs until stiff and fold slowly into mixture. Let set in cool place for several days. Taste frequently.

Using these recipes you'll be helping your local liquor store immensely. Your liver is a different story.

Welcome to the ONT where we have a little of everything tonight.

Quotes of The Day

“Life will soon bring you increased responsibilities, and it is rare that you will have a legitimate choice to do nothing. Responsibility usually demands action.”Former CIA Director Michael Hayden

Obama has made incredibly poor decisions that have made us less safe. Michael T. Flynn-Designated National Security Adviser

Why are we less safe today than say 8 years ago? Uninformed civilian hacks.

Made up words for a made up world. Or reality bites. Gavin McInnes takes a look at the uninformed.

“What we care about is permanent protection, dignity, and respect,” blurted out Alex Uematsu of the pro-illegal group Cosecha Movement on Tucker Carlson Tonight. “I’m for those things too,” Tucker responded. Carlson has been eating liberals alive on his new show and all it takes is a few simple questions. When he asked Canisius College history professor René de la Pedraja why people flee Cuba, the pink-cheeked PhD said, “They left their wives behind. They want to start a new life.” This was clearly a theory René pulled out of his ass at the last minute, but this is what we’re up against these days. We are at war with a value system based on meaningless platitudes and conjecture.

Didn't care for the fruit cake? Not everyone cares for candied fruit. Perhaps you will enjoy tomorrow, National Sacher Torte Day. At least the ONT shared the fruit cake recipe with you.

Mainstream. Outside of the Mainstream. Battle lines forming on upcoming Federal court appointees by Trump. Time will tell if President Elect Trump's campaign promises come true. Time will tell if the GOP controlled Senate has the balls backbone to fight Chuck Schumer.

Our friends to the north are in the midst of a cultural /legislation fight. In Canada you can legally commit suicide. You just don't have the right to experimental treatment. Why not legalize it? What is there to lose?

"“I’m going to die anyway,” said right-to-try campaign co-founder Jeff Perreault, who has ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

While competent people facing a forseeable death have the legal “right to die” in Canada, they don’t have the “right to try” something that might prolong their lives, he says.

“We have the law that allows us to kill ourselves. We just don’t have the law to do something else.”

Tonight's Musical Interlude

It will be a long climb. But perhaps common sense is hitting college campuses. OSU student points out the obvious. The left is more frightened of Trump than ISIS.

More praise for Sec. of Defense choice General James "Mad Dog" Mattis. Even an Obama appointed general agrees on the choice.

Has the civilized world grown too fat and soft? Are there enough worthwhile challenges for mankind? Are there legitimate wrongs to be righted? Vegans Are Livid Because Britain’s New Currency Includes Animal Fat.

England’s large number of vegans and other meat abstainers have gotten pretty hacked off this week after learning their country’s new £5 bill, one of the most common (and therefore unavoidable) denominations, contains actual animal fat in its polymer base. The new note, just released in September, was promoted as being sturdier, safer, and more environmentally friendly than its predecessor, but as the Bank of England has been forced to acknowledge repeatedly over the last couple of days on Twitter, it’s not so good for people who avoid animal products:

Give the ONT a %^&*#@^ break.

When Donald Trump talks about America Great Again, what comes to mind? Better economic conditions? Better moral values? What use to be an enjoyable show on Sunday evenings by a wholesome American company has become the purveyor of a vulgar pop culture.

Science lesson time. Remote control lighting. This may be NSFW

Coexist? The ONT is confused. Is it permissible for a heavy carbon footprint in order to protest an Anti-LGBT neighbor?

30 The Enwokening of White People

With the alienation of the vast majority of White people from the Democrat party, some on the Left are trying out how to get White voters back. John McWhorter tries to do this - not by acknowledging that playing identity politics results in the other side doing the same - but by hiding the contempt the racialist Left has for White people so as to no scare them off. Right off the bat, McWhorter declares that most White people are too stupid to "get it".

Most new shows go for the single Millennials like Two Broke Girls, so traditional family units are becoming scarce.

What traditional families there are have a mother who is flustered that dad is clueless about her needs and feelings so she goes to the gay neighbor for sage advice.

76 Here's the eggnog recipe I use (cooking the eggs).

6 eggs, 2 extra egg yolks, 10 Tbsp sugar, 1/4 tsp salt, 4 cups whole milk.

Start by whisking the eggs, egg yolks, sugar and salt in a large pan
until well-blended. Keep on whisking while you slowly pour in the milk
until it's completely blended. Set the pan on a burner and turn it to
the lowest possible setting. Whisk continuously for 25-30 minutes or
until the mixture reaches 160F and will coat the underside of a spoon.

Remove from heat and strain into a large bowl. Stir in 1 cup bourbon, 1 Tbsp. vanilla and 1/2 tsp. grated nutmeg.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

When ready to serve, whip 3/4 C. heavy cream and fold into the mixture.

Do a search for 'Sepoy rebellion'.

tl;dr, one of the triggers of a mutiny of Indian troops against the British was introducing a new rifle and a new cartridge, back when you had to bite the cartridge open, pour the powder, and then ram the bullet. The British couldn't convince the Hindu troops the bullet wasn't greased with beef tallow, and couldn't convince the Muslim troops it wasn't greased with lard. War ensued.

(there were other causes, but that's the most interesting one)

Pannetone. They decide the colors and their codes, right? about 5 years or so ago, the Pantone color of the year was a lovely shade of tangerine orange. The year after was a pretty shade of emerald green, but I preferred the orange. When the Pantone colors are announced, designers and artists scramble to incorporate those colors into their work.

117 I'll tell you the worst thing there is, as far as "buffet" or "smorgasbord" dining goes...

An Italian-style buffet, with eggplant parmigiana.

Most of the time when I step up to a buffet-style meal, it's after a day of pretty hard work for an event at which the buffet dinner is just a part of the whole thing.

And I'll see these nice-looking breaded cutlets, and I'm thinking, "Yeah, put one of those on some noodles, pour some sauce over that... got some nice chicken parm, right there! Yeah! That's gonna be awesome!"

And then I take a bite of that cutlet... and it turns out to be a hunk of breaded snot.

And I'm thinking, "Why? Who would do this to me? Why hast thou forsaken me, Lord?"

Eggplant parmigiana is food fraud. Straight up truth.

158 The Swedish smorgasbords from Jul had a fish table and a meat table. The fish table has every possible kind of herring, and also smoked eel, lutfisk and other mysterious things. The meat table featured the pig's head decorated with frosting to make it all fancy, then the julskinka (Christmas ham). Also sausages, meatballs, gravies.

And then the dessert table with all kinds of deliciousness, including rice pudding (bleah). This was the company Christmas party on the ferry to Denmark. The company paid for hotel rooms and disco cover charge, and a few rounds of drinks.

Someone (multiple someones) always behaved badly. Sex, drunkenness, drunken sex or any combination thereof. Swedish tradition requires that it is forgotten and excused as though it never happened.

178 #139: Well, maybe I was being a bit too charitable in calling it "breaded snot", then. After all, at least real snot comes from an actual animal, and thus might provide you with a full protein, if nothing else.

Eggplant, though, is like pseudo-snot that comes from a plant and thus only provides maybe half of the amino acids you need for a full protein.

It's both gross, and lacking in what you really need for proper nutrition.

Food fraud.

Slice the garlic sausage about 1/4" thick.
Put some Triscuits on a plate, and a little dab of wasabi on each Triscuits. Put a sausage slice on the wasabi, and a thins slice or two of sushi ginger on top.

Do not, under any circumstances, tell people about the wasabi, when you offer them your exclusive Ukrainian Sushi. Allow them to discover it for themselves.

(This is actually really good, once you get your proportions right).

260 230 Eggplant and okra both have really icky textures.
Posted by: nerdygirl at December 05, 2016 10:50 PM (+lVUW)


*sputter*

Eggplant and okra both have multiple textures:

Eggplant: Very soft and creamy/some bite
Okra: Very soft and crunchy

The only thing wrong with eggplant and okra is that both have an in between texture that is awful.

Okra: Goopy, stringy, you swallow some and find out that what you swallowed is still connected to what's in your mouth so you sort of gag.
Eggplant: Too firm/rubbery and too watery. You didn't salt/squeeze beforehand to get enough water out, and/or you didn't cook long enough.

So you just don't eat either of them in their horrible-texture phase

336 I just have to get this off my chest.

I no longer have any respect at all for liberals. Once I thought they were misguided but sincere. That has changed over the past 8 years, and profoundly over the past 8 months or so.

They aren't idealists. They are pathetic little shits who try to compensate for their miserable, unhappy lives by worshipping power. They are true Fascists, steeped in hate, repeating lies, destroying all human connections in order to adore the Party and the Leader.

To hell with them all. Right now I wish all their worst fears about Trump were not only true, but vastly under-estimating the man. I wouldn't mind seeing mass deportations of every single damned Democrat in the land. Send them to Mexico or China; let them work their magic in those countries. They can destroy some other society for a change.

I'm not really even angry any more. It has settled down to a cold contempt. When I heard about the fire in Oakland, my first thought was, "A bunch of California hipsters died. Too bad it wasn't the whole city."

I don't like myself for thinking that way, but there it is.

This is how civil wars get started.

Dip the cracker sandwich in the melted chocolate and refrigerate for a few hours. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks yummy.

Liberal black activists have launched a monthly “subscription box” designed for white people “to not only financially support Black femme freedom fighters, but also complete measurable tasks in the fight against white supremacy.”

The subscription service is called Safety pin box and was launched last week. Wearing a safety pin has recently become a symbol within the liberal community for one to show solidarity with minorities.

The group headed by Leslie Mac and Marissa Jenae Johnson. Johnson is one of the black lives matter protesters who interrupted Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders during a speech in Seattle last year.

The yahoo group is still there. Sometimes everyone gets really quiet but other times we have some good discussions. The weird thing about the group is that a lot of the members don't post here. They're strictly at the group which is a real shame. There are some really funny, smart people in that mix that would be a great asset to the blog if they commented here. A few of them are Empire of Jeff level hilarious. Speaking of EoJ, has anyone heard from him?

I guess I empathize but it's more complicated than that.

We have done a piss-poor job of stopping their arrogant advance and we've cooperated too much in insulating them from the consequences of their decisions.

We have other priorities, and lives, and we don't think we should have to waste all our energy teaching them remedial responsibility. Life's not fair.

It's like Spoiled Brat became a culture, self-justifying and reinforcing, and there's no real way to get rid of it completely because spoiled brats come up in every generation.

We just have to stop allowing them to pretend to be something they're not.

So.. if you have a child that has a personality like he has, that might be the child that he responds to, if he's not responding well to you. Old school men don't like to appear weak to their wives, but will sometimes accept help from their children.

She always defends me from her crazy friends, whenever I post political opinions on her FB posts, and forces them to settle down and be civil.

The few that aren't evil will be forced to choose, and when they do, it will be their for their side. So in the end, the results are the same.

In this war, everyone will have to choose a side, otherwise it will likely be chosen for them.

Speaking of, there was a girl-girl smooch on Supergirl this past week. All I can say is, at least it wasn't guys. (Yes, I am a guy who's prejudiced.) And, at least it wasn't the Supergirl herself - she's plainly into a guy. But the whole "nothing wrong with it" homo thing, which is surely peaking, is still strong in Massed Mediuh. But, it involved S'girl's "sister" Alex, which just goes to show you what can happen when you name a girl with a guy name. (Looks around warily at local Alexes....)

For me the key is that the Left wants to tell everyone how to live, and what to think...

The Right wants people to think for themselves... and live the way they wish... just not forcing it on others.

Even those who are 'nice' about it... still want to control your behavior.... and speech...

Some of those concerns can be addressed and some of them can't.

I feel your pain. My dad was the exact same way. So stubborn and phobic of doctors that he ruined his health and was disabled for almost 15 years before he passed away. I think his biggest regret was that he did not take care of his health; not because it hurt him, but because it hurt my Mom and I (I'm an only child.) He spent most of that 15 years grumbling but let us take care of his health and we did a pretty good job I think. But it was super rough, with lots and lots of arguing.

Lovely. Have any of these geniuses given a thought to how much money their mass protests cost the cash strapped cities that they protest in? These cities can't just pull the money out of thin air for the police overtime, etc. When cities have to take a hard look at their budgets, it isn't going to hurt people like me.

I have two brothers, Thing One is older, Thing Two is younger. Thing One travels a bit for his job and Pappy always seems to have some major health issue when One is out of the country. He was supposed to leave for Turkey last weekend, but got postponed until next sunday..
We all get along and since Mom passed away in 2009 we all look after our delightful but stubborn Pappy. For 3 yrs in a row he had a major health situation in May. Hospitalized in May every yr for three yrs. in a row. We told him we would just haul him off the hospital on May 1 and tell them to call us if he was okay on June 1. The next yr, he didn't need hospital in may but wound up in the e.r. twice in june and again in july which kept him in for about 3 months. When he got carted off tonight we were basically saying hey it isn't may yet and started the betting on what the problem would be. We all called the ribs, I got the pneumonia, and we all missed the gallstones and cyst thingys. We are a weird family.

Trump taking the call from Taiwan strikes me on a gut level as the right thing to do. China is not a bulwark against the Soviets anymore. Taiwan is an island of democracy is a sea of totalitarian bullshit.

If simply taking a call or *gasp* opening diplomatic relations with a free democracy will cause the Chinese to go ape, then maybe we need to rethink who are the dangerous ones.

592 I've had a bad cough since the end of September. I'm convinced it's whooping cough. Started as a dry cough one day which changed to a pleghmy cough for a week or two. At that point I thought it was just fall allergies, but then the cough got much worse - a deep bronchitis-type cough with bouts of severe coughing. At times I felt like I was suffocating because my bronchial passages were covered with a thick mucous. The coughing and mucous have lightened up the last week or two, and I figure I'll have this knocked out by Christmas. It sucks to spend a quarter of the year coughing, and it's changed my voice. I hope I get my singing voice back.

'41 parade this year, then eastern front footage from both sides, then clips from the Russian movie "Stalingrad" from 2 years ago.


Apart from language practice, came across a puzzling apparent truth. You mount the spike bayonet on the Mosin-Nagant rifle with the little elbow/bend *up* ..... but this blocks the sights, so I don't get it. Just tried to put the bayonet on one of my Mosins yesterday for the first time, seemed impossible that the up position was correct.


Yet in the film footage there are dozens of Red Army soldiers with their bayonets fixed that way, and dead Red Army soldiers in the German footage - same thing. Seems conclusive.

Publicly expressing your fear -- or your pretend-fear -- no longer serves any purpose. The election is over, and there is no one left to convince either way.

So, while you are free to feel that way -- or to pretend to feel that way -- your feeling does not affect the reality that of course such a thing would never happen, nor does it affect anyone else's opinion of Trump in any way that matters, since the voting has already occurred.

A major city. Sixty percent of precincts do not have agreement between the two basic metrics meant to show accuracy of count and integrity of the vote.


This is a real crisis in the country, but seems unlikely to get much attention. And that one major party fanatically opposes any common sense measures to bring our elections up to world standards (that we created) ..... lots of people trying reallll hard to earn the "not my countrymen" treatment.

The Moisin Nagant model 1891 was meant for use up to 1000 meters (arshans = paces) in volley fire, and one of the best selling points originally is that it would be accurate at that range if used against massed cavalry charges, and the bayonet would be best fixed at the last minute to make a hedgehog before the cavalry got home.


Something that long with such a long bayo is unwieldy, and like using a short pike, the best action is to jab it forward like a pool cue - so I am told.
The spike bayonet is not good for slashing, just poking.
I wonder if the armies that used a blade bayonet had a greater history of infantry against infantry actions, as opposed to the Russians who historically dealt with the light horse of the Mongols and Turks, and other Steppes raiders.

Including that these spike bayonets (I think that's the term) are definitely for poking, not slashing. Edges aren't that sharp on the sides, but the tip is reasonably business-like.


And with the bayo mounted the sucker is about 6 feet long, or seems it. "Unwieldy" is an understatement.


Yet in this WWII footage, Red Army troops are clearly fairly close to the action have them mounted. Fog of archive footage, in peace-time!

The French believed that the bayonet should always be mounted in action for morale, and this caused problem in WWI when the war went static in the trenches.
The Berthier rifle was a design improvement over earlier rifles, although it was a beautifully engineered rifle with full French styling, it was long and had a long bayonet with that fashionable hook on the quillion that apparently was designed for catching in concertina wire and was probably a delight going over the top on ladders too

Subsequent models dropped the fancy quillion on the bayonet and later the parts that stuck out, and as the war ground on the rifle was modified to a five (!) shot en-block clip and shortened to a carbine model for handyness in the trenches.

The French also liked the stabby bayonet design.

Since a lot of their history was also dealing with cavalry, I wonder if that wasn't a driving force in that design too.

745

If you have a rifle that has a bayonet included, and ever feel the need to extend or attach the bayonet, you will notice that the result looks and feels sort of like a halberd ... but isn't.

The stock really isn't properly shaped for a chopping motion. The risk of unseating the barrel & receiver from the stock is much too high; it's almost guaranteed on rifles with no barrel band at the fore end of the stock. Bending the barrel isn't likely, at least not with modern barrels, but there's a chance ... and a functional rifle is very much more weapon than an edged weapon.

But, as a stabbing weapon, the bayonet-on-rifle has some merit. Reaching a rider on a horse is possible (and cavalry was a (minor) threat even in early WW2). I've talked to a few guys who were in Iraq; apparently there's a bit of a return to including edged and impact weapons when entering apartment buildings as there are occasions where the players are all very close and getting a shot off might take too long or might hit friendlies, but using a tire iron to whack an unfriendly is quick and reliable.

Posted by: Arbalest at December 06, 2016 02:43 AM (FlRtG)

746 Palp I understand - hell, both of us would happily care for and feed a PPsh, right? - but if your friends were 200 yards from some krauts and needed to hit them they'd develop a sudden appreciation for the Mosin, I'd guess.


Of course most casualties inflicted by direct small arms fire in WWII was at fairly short range - 150 yards and less. But a sub-machine gun was obviously not in play until fairly short ranges.

The Katyusha rocket had an ordinance stamp K, and was called the Katyusha for that reason, it was a popular song at the time

Apple trees and pear trees went into blooming,
River mists began a floating flow,
She came out and went ashore, Katyusha!
On the lofty bank, on the steeply shore.

She came out and sang she song about
Her young friend, the bluish eagle from steppe
All about the one she dearly loved,
The one whose letters she treasured and kept.

Hey, a song, the song of the young girl,
Fly and go after the bright Sun,
Find a soldier on the distant borderlands
Say hello from Katya waiting long for him.

Let him remember the young and simple maiden,
Let him hear the song she now sings,
Let him protect his Motherland for sure,
And their love Katyusha will protect.

Plywood floor was rotted due to decades of leaking plumbing in bathroom/water heater area. And some bozos had replumbed it in 2005 (based on date scrawled on the floor joists), and cut huge notches in the floor joists to pass the pipes. Tore all that out. Will sister the compromised joists with new 2X6, screwed and glued, and 2 sheets of new 3/4 inch plywood should make it whole again.

Rather, when they do, it means they're working.

783 A bayonet or any blade wont jam. The will break though if you hit the wrong spot. Not often but it can happen.

816 Did the American Community Survey last night. Put it off as long as I could but I was starting to gt weekly notices. Page after page of detailed, intrusive questions that help the govt decide what is best for us. Especially fun is the focus on race/ethnicity. I filled out the whole damned thing for our family , more or less accurately, by hand in my chicken scratch style. With a few errors scratched out and corrected to clarify. Somebody will have fun plowing through that. Especially the part about my wife being part South American Indian mixed race Quechau-Guarani-Spanish. Kids described as just white (which they are) hopefully will further confuse the issue

well, the only missiles i was authorized to fire had a max effective range of 3750 meters, so i know SFA about nuclear release protocols, but i'd like to think that there are a few redundancies built into the system to prevent the random launching of nukes...

I tried that for past coupe
