Overnight Open Thread (26 Oct 2013)

The Republican Party's Hidden Advantages. Oh I'm sure they'll figure out a way to screw that up too.

Costumes

What is deemed 'offensive' these days is getting ridiculous. U of CO prohibits cowboy, indian and any costume with a sombrero.

I'm sure they'll add any 404 Obamacare costumes to the list.

Guns N Roses Cover

F-14 Tomcats vs UFO's

I don't care how bogus I think the story is, the idea of Tomcat's vs UFO's is awesome. Iranian F-14's chasing UFO's.

Mamming

So this mamming thing is real? What's next? Balling?

Oh Hell No

Heh. A sensible horror film.

CIA Spies

Figures. The CIA's most highly trained spies were animals.

Pacific Rim Honest Trailer

I don't care. I still enjoyed the movie.

Proper Toilet Paper Roll Installation

I think this image clearly shows why it is important to place your toilet paper roll the other way.

Coming To America

UK welfare couple demand bigger taxpayer funded house because they are lesbian.

12 Public School Collecting Political Information on Parents… Through Their Children

A public school in Colorado handed out assignments to students that collected information about the students’ political beliefs… as well as the beliefs of their parents. The questions had a subtle bent that painted the “liberal” side in a good light, while casting the “conservative” side in a bad one. This is yet another example of the public schools conditioning children to think “correctly.”

24 12 Public School Collecting Political Information on Parents… Through Their Children
-----

Shit, my public school did that in the 70s. Johns Hopkins used us as guinea pigs for some survey with all sorts of inappropriate questions about our family, including religion and politics.

When my mom got wind of it she demanded my survey be returned. School tried to bluff by claiming it was all anonymous, but I knew that they'd had us a put our names on something - which was coded to the survey. So eventually they coughed it up.

That was kind of the final straw in my mom really getting involved in our public school system.

41 CDR M: I watched last night's Hornet Ball video after the thread was dead. I noticed the Hornets sometimes fly with a centerline tank and right wing tank. Don't know if you can answer this but is it normal for F-18s to fly with an asymmetrical fuel load configuration like that? I worked F-4s and F-16s and we would never hang just one wing tank. In fact , I can't think of any fighters I'm aware of that do that.

Buffaloes find Indians and Cowboys "offensive". Blame guns, hunting endangered species ... or something.

The Prez said no cultural costumes allowed, and nothing sexual in nature, either. Those standard French Maid costumes? Not in Boulder. Toga? "Offensive" cultural costume. Can't come as you are since you're officially "Offensive".

79 Yeah, I guess it's safe given the ladies they used for the pix!

I had lunch with three ladies my age (50s) a couple of weeks ago, only one of them - besides self - had regular mammograms. The other two didn't because they're "uncomfortable." Turns out Utah is worst in the nation for women going for their checkups and also very bad for breast cancer survival rates.

Not sure if it's connected, but the radiologist docs I've had here have had terrible bedside manners. I haven't held back on the post-exam surveys my health provider conducts. Saw some improvement from one of them the next time, but then I got a new one last time - he also stunk. SMH.

87 Ok thats it. I cant take it anymore. We constantly hear how Republicans get outmaneuvered by Democrats at every turn. Yet when someone tries something even mildly out of the mainstream people like McCain in the party ruthlessly enforce the status quo.
Does anyone actually think that Cruz believed he would be able to achieve his stated goals? We all knew it was not possible. Hell I am pretty sure even he knew it was not possible. So why did he do it?
To borrow the favorite term from Instapundit. Its battle space preparation

The Dem's and the MSM(but I repeat myself) have a very nasty habit of attributing all good things to Democratic policies while all failures are either Republican or bipartisan..They rely on the lack of memory and outright lies to pull this off time and time again. So Cruz did something that may seem like a short term tactical mistake, but turn into a long term boon.

The establishment has just spent weeks going out of their way blaming Cruz for the shutdown and Republicans in general. All because they wanted to stop Obamacare. But you know what? They spent so much time doing that and banging it into the heads of their viewers it will be really hard to then turn around an point the fingers at Republicans as Obamacare being their fault. Heck they were willing to go to the mat for against it.

Oh it wont stop them from trying. But with the extremely short period of time between the shutdown and the Health care implosion wont give the MSM much leeway to parrot the Dem talking points. I dont expect the establishment Republicans to really get any of this.
For the most part they have been spineless bobbleheads simply trying to keep the gravy train flowing. Anyone with an ounce of actual leadership qualities has been quickly marginalized by the RSC for the last 30 years. I think they all know on some level that their "base" had held them in complete contempt for decades now. But are forced to vote for them simply because the alternative is far worse.

I for one am done with the lot of them. The fecklessness, backbiting,power hungry,venal, narcissists that occupy the power structure need to be tossed out on their asses. Until that is done nothing will ever get fixed

100 The problem with a bat kitty is when they're flapping around the house they'd go "mew mew" rather than screech like a bat does. Plus you'd throw a towel over it or whatever and they'd just play with it.

My nephew went out in a Sombrero and poncho last year, but his mom's Mexican.

No. But only because his mom is Mexican. If it had been a non-hispanic white, it would have been really bad and insulting and La Raza would have been totally justified in burning their house down.

He & his friend Donna had a falling out for something stupid someone said & she believed what that person said. My brother cannot take a drug in his current state. He can only take what they give him. I think it’s an excuse to stop visiting him.

When the volunteer Chinese crossed into North Korea, they came as a show of force against the invading American forces bent on occupying and stealing North Korean technology, oil, and mineral reserves.

Thankfully the Chinese were able to forestall the Imperial American invading Army from raping and pillaging the young nubile North Korean women.

I did that two years ago--the Charlie Brown "had a little trouble with the scissors" version. I had to wear a baseball cap under the sheet so there was some room to breathe, and I couldn't see worth crap.

And none of my cow-orkers under 35 were able to identify "Charlie Brown's Halloween costume" which depressed me immensely.

There, the old man's wife was baking chocolate chip cookies. With his last ounce of energy, the old man reached for a cookie. His wife, however, quickly smacked him across the back of his hand, and exclaimed, "Leave them alone, they're for the funeral!"

It's Caturday Niiiiight!

My son was in college when he decided to pick up a cat from the shelter. If you pluck the wings off the black dragon in How to Train Your Dragon, you've got his cat. He named it Onyxia for some reason, but fortunately, the little black kitty got the nick of just "Ony."

And where did Ony live after sonny boy left college? Mom and Dad's of course. Along with son's roommate's cat "Dude," who was two paws in the grave when we got him, and died soon after, much to Ony's distress.

Entirely separately, a couple of years ago, a semi-feral cat we called Max (also black, no relation) showed up one morning with a little yellow fuzzy kitty in tow. That kitty just walked into our house, our lives, and our hearts like he always belonged.

Charlie was a tonic for Ony. They soon became good pals and ever since they've nuzzled and licked, chased, and wrestled, and played like kittens. When they tumble around, they can leave a streak of orange and black fur.

Charlie and Ony (sometimes aka "Chony)
They're our Halloween kitties.
No, we don't dress them in costumes.

The game was played (I assume you mean TCU/Oklahoma?). Because it lasted into the baseball pregame show the end of the game was punted to the Fox News channel. Oklahoma won 38-30.

206 Entirely separately, a couple of years ago, a semi-feral cat we called Max (also black, no relation) showed up one morning with a little yellow fuzzy kitty in tow. That kitty just walked into our house, our lives, and our hearts like he always belonged.

I fostered a young momma kitty and her litter once a few years back, before adopting them all out.

In the litter was one black-and-white "tuxedo" kitten nicknamed Felix. The mother was Midnight. Who was grey. No, it doesn't make sense.

Anyway, those two were adopted out to the same house, up in the mountains in the middle of nowhere. A few weeks later they disappeared, but a week later they both strolled back, or should I say all three, as a new kitten was in tow - such an exact duplicate of Felix the owners could not tell them apart.

There was only one in the litter, none of the neighbors for many miles had kittens.

Things that make you go "hmmmm...."

249 Another longwindy caturday story.

Littlest cat we've ever had walked up to my son (not the one who had Ony, the other son) at a gas station downtown and began rubbing up against him with take-me-home meows. Son phoned me and I told him absolutely positively not to take in another cat no way no how. Because that's always worked so well.

So, little Faithful joined us. She has one slightly bent-over ear. Real little. You could make four to six of her out of our biggest cat. Medium long-hair. Fuzzy and snuggly, but like a lot of little critters, can cut you in a flash. For no apparent reason. Finicky, too. Certain brand of fancy canned food only. (None of our farm cats gets to be finicky.)

My son and daugher, and Faithful, had been rooming together in an apartment, and recently moved into a house. Faithful began spraying places other than her catbox, very odd for her. Mostly my daughter's room. So, eventually, Daughter figured it out.

At the apartment, the catbox had been in the bathroom, but at the house, the bathroom is too small for a catbox. They had put the catbox off the kitchen, but Faithful apparently didn't like it.

So, my daughter got a shoebox and put some litter in it. (Faithful's so little!) And that seemed to resolve the problem. She wanted to pee and poo where you're supposed to.

Trick -- cyanoacrylates are NOT high temp glues; they start decomposing around 300 degrees. If you have a spot where it was being uses like Loctite, you can get it to release by heating the fastener up with the tip of a soldering iron to decompose the glue

257 We had a cat that would mooch food from us. We called him Garfield because he weighed like 20 lbs! We talked to the neighbors, and EVERYONE fed him,so he would just make the rounds, door to door, and get fatter and fatter.

one day we said, 'you're not getting any more of our leftovers!" so we pulled out the only pet food we had. LARGE DOG food. The kibble was about the size of a nickle!

We put the bowl down, he looked at it, looked at us, and went "Meow??" as in "REALLY? You bastards!" (he didn't HAVE to eat it!) We laughed, and he tried some.. In between trying to chew it, he would look at us again and "Me-crunch-ow!?" We just died laughing!

We just ignored him after that. He had plenty of others to mooch off of.

Seems to be some kind of parallel with the LIVs, but I'm not sure....

I have a kitchen sink faucet, with a central screw that seems to work itself out every few months, which means I need to go in there with an allen wrench (to remove the handle) and a screwdriver and tighten it back up. Any way to hold it in there better without permanently fusing it? Getting pretty sick of doing this. And, if I do something, how would I get the screw out again? It's about 1" long, and thin.

288 Screw Norquist. He's playing the game unfairly, like leftys do:

"For two months Texas senator Ted Cruz promised his followers
certain victory if they would simply follow direction and never waver. "

Did he really promise that? Got a quote? As far as I can tell, he just conveyed the notion that Obamacare was worth fighting against. He was right. It was and is.

289 "Did he ever even touch home plate?"

No he didn't and was tagged out before even getting close.

The obstruction call is why the run was counted as scored. I think that call is bullshit because the 3rd baseman was looking at the ball and didn't have any eye contact with the runner whom had just ran into him.

290 Trick -- cyanoacrylates are NOT high temp glues; they start decomposing around 300 degrees. If you have a spot where it was being uses like Loctite, you can get it to release by heating the fastener up with the tip of a soldering iron to decompose the glue

Well, the plastic around it has a considerably lower melting temperature.

291 "
I have a kitchen sink faucet, with a central screw that seems to work itself out every few months, which means I need to go in there with an allen wrench (to remove the handle) and a screwdriver and tighten it back up. Any way to hold it in there better without permanently fusing it? Getting pretty sick of doing this. And, if I do something, how would I get the screw out again? It's about 1" long, and thin."

Get
Purple Loc-Tite (low strength). That way you can lock the threads, but
it won't be a pain in the ass to take the screw out if you have to do
maintenance on the faucet.


Sounds promising. So when I have to get it out of there, what happens? I just exert a little more force on the screwdriver, but don't have to strip the threads?

322 TWD has been semi-interesting. At this stage all I really want is some sort of explanation for what happened. But I'm guessing that will never happen. I know the comic is still being written. And the guy writing the comics says he has no plans to ever end the series. So that means he intends to keep everything a mystery as long as possible.

It also means the writers don't know the answer. There probably is no semi-coherent explanation possible. So it's not that they aren't telling us the explanation to keep us in suspense -- they don't know the explanation themselves. There is no explanation.

Old science fiction used at least require an attempt at explanations for the seemingly inexplicable. But that was too hard. So nowadays they don't even bother.

To me a big part of the payoff of mysteries is knowing I will eventually be told the solution.

Walking Dead defender's will say I'm missing the point. It's all about character studies and relationships in the post-apocalypse world, blah, blah, blah.

334 I saw Gravity again tonight. This is the first movie I saw twice in a theater since Titanic.

In the previous case, my second viewing was several months after the first. This time I went back again so soon because I read that it is booked in IMAX 3D theaters through the month of October, but I don't know how much longer after that. This is a movie that definitely should be seen in IMAX 3D if possible.

It holds up very well to a second viewing. Some of the more vertigo-inducing scenes still had me hanging onto to my seat for dear life. Also, I made a point of looking for some of the small details I've read about but missed the first time.

They probably apologize, too, and press the elevator buttons for them before stepping out. The Republicans are so bullied, that they probably say their are sorry when Democrats elbow them when passing through the halls. The Republicans probably go home to their spouses at night and say things like, "I don't know what we did, we try to be really nice to the Democrats, and we say we are sorry and stuff, but the Dems are just so mean...I guess we'll have to try harder to make the Dems and the media like us more."

I've seen games in both Fenway Busch (old) and really enjoyed both places, Fenway for the ambiance/history, Busch cause there are really no fans more knowledgeable about the game anywhere, crazier maybe *cough* Cubs fans *cough*. if anything may be more Cards because F the DH.

After the 11/2 event, I want to settle in somewhere close to Pasadena. Any suggestions? Last time, I was across the street from the college and have reason to believe my Wi-Fi was intercepted.




Planning on hitting the Huntington on 11/3, but bedding down in the San Diego area 'cause we're hitting the SD Zoo on 11/4.

376 The Republican Party's Hidden Advantages.

"Each party has one chamber of Congress and thus wields a veto of any change in law. When Cruz demanded a change in the law of the land—repealing Obamacare—the Democrats simply said no. Now it is Obama and the Democrats who wish to change the law of the land: the sequester spending limits and the permanent extension of the tax cuts. Republicans can and (they assure this writer) will simply say no."

I feel the same. The cable is mainly there for my mother. She has never gotten used to the idea of video on demand. Renting videos was where her memory banks maxxed out. She has a couple dozen DVDs my siblings and I have bought for her, and I've downloaded hundreds of hours of material she asked about. But she never watches them. For her, TV is something that happens on the networks schedule, though she does use the TiVo.

In fact, I'd probably drop the TiVo subscription if it wasn't for my mother. My sister is a bit mystified when I talk about network drives but she can understand how to bring up videos on the HTPC if I make a desktop icon.

Myself, I haven't followed a broadcast series for over a year. I just have a hard time getting interested anymore it seems. People gushed over Breaking Bad but after sampling it I just felt like it would be good if everybody died and left a better world for their absence. Perhaps I'd feel that way about the Sopranos if it started today.
