Overnight Open Thread (1-15-2015)–Warning: There is Math Here

Quote of the Day

Now, I want to make sure that my point is very, very clear, because after all I am trying to explain things to people who think that it's smart to play in traffic.  So here we go: society values beloved grandfathers over Lefty protesters.  So when it's a choice between an example of the former needing to be rushed to the hospital after a horrible car accident, and examples of the latter risking horrible car accidents, society's default sympathy is going to be with the grandfather.  And this is not casual, either: the EMTs could have gotten out of the ambulance this morning and cleared a path with their defibrillators and society would have nodded solemnly and murmured It's a shame that it had to come to that.

-- Moe Lane on freeway protestors

Well actually they would be lucky to only get defibrillated.

Top 5 Liberal Lies Disguised as Math

3. Average age in Vietnam was 19.
From Statistics about Vietnam:

Average age of 58,148 killed in Vietnam was 23.11 years.

I went back 40 years to remind people how prevalent liberal lies disguised as statistics are when it comes to war. Be suspicious of any liberal stats on veterans. They will make them up out of whole cloth.

The Biggest Math Story of the Year - The 1 in 5 Women Lie

Even if you were to accept this statistic, it turns out that it's simply inconsistent with other well-known activist statistics. Which means that there's lying going on here.

The use of the "one in five" statistic began to unravel almost immediately, as a number of people, most notably University of Michigan economics professor Mark Perry, realized that when this statistic is combined with a second claim that only 12% of student victims of sexual assault report their allegations to law enforcement officials, that they cannot possibly both be true.

The top five members of Congress are worth more than the GDP of entire countries. At $200.5 million, Republican Dave Trott's personal wealth is greater than the GDP of both Peru and Iraq ($200,269 and $195,517, respectively). Democrat Jared Polis is worth $213.2 million, more than the GDP of Algeria and ($208,764). Democrat John K. Delaney is worth $222.4, greater than the GDP of the Czech Republic ($208,796). Another Democrat, Mark Warner, is worth $254.2 million, which beats out the GDP of Greece ($241,721). While Republican Darryl Issa, the richest man in Congress, is worth an incredible $448.4 million, which makes him worth more than the GDPs of Bolivia, Croatia, Sri Lanka and Hong Kong put together ($30,601; $57,869; $67,203; and $274,027, respectively).

Lithuania Prepares Its Citizens For a Possible Russian Occupation

Lithuania is publishing a manual to advise its citizens on how to survive a war on its soil as concerns grow that Russia's intervention in Ukraine heralds increased assertiveness in its tiny Baltic neighbors.

...Lithuania spent much of the last century incorporated in Soviet Union, along with Latvia and Estonia, and upon independence in 1991 quickly sought to join the Western NATO alliance and the European Union.

It is increasingly worried about Russia, not least because of a military drill in the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad last month that featured 9,000 soldiers and more than 55 naval vessels.

"The examples of Georgia and Ukraine, which both lost a part of their territory, show us that we cannot rule out a similar kind of situation here, and that we should be ready," Defence Minister Juozas Olekas told Reuters.

Simulating the Charlie Hebdo Attack: 7 Out of 9 Armed Defenders Got Hits on One Terrorist

But all of the defenders also got hit. Which puts it on par with a knife fight: you may be able to kill the other guy but you're are definitely going to get cut.

When I asked Nick to conduct a simulation of the Charlie Hebdo attack on short notice I knew we'd be in for a rough ride. The sim pit one handgun-holding self-defender against two rifle-wielding terrorists in a close approximation of the Hebdo offices. As anyone with a passing knowledge of gun fights will tell you, the odds of a successful outcome (two dead terrorists) were heavily stacked against the good guy with a gun. Click here for Nick's preliminary results. The main takeaway: seven out of the nine armed defenders got hits on one of the terrorists. There may have been one defender who managed both terrorists.

50 Gun fight at Le Charlie Hebdo.

There is a common defensive strategy known as 'defense in depth'.

What is the outcome of an armed attack on the Offices of Le Charlie Hebdo when there are two armed defenders in different rooms?

Ya, ya. The attackers simply send in more troops. Or attack at home where there are no defenders, and the attack will always be a surprise unless your defensive perimeter starts outside the building.

B) 1 guy as defender against 2 attackers with rifles? I'm a pretty good marksman, and more than competent empty handed, but I'm not gonna live through that fight. Even if I get two hits in two seconds, they're not gonna be head shots, so the bad guys still have some fight in them, probably.

Apparently that was a NYPD Blue episode from 1994. I googled it.

As for Guns 'n' Roses: I figured where Axl was singing about getting smashed on hobo wine, or about getting hit up by old flames fourteen years later, he meant it.

103 Reminder: Every liberal/progressive "fact" and "statistic" is either completely made up *or* missing key information which changes the entire meaning of it. If you can't disprove it or it sounds pretty reasonable, ALWAYS look for the missing info. Do your research.

EXAMPLE 1: America has the highest infant mortality rate of developed countries. (SAMPLE MISSING INFO: Other countries don't report infant mortality truthfully, we do, partly because we believe infants are humans.)

EXAMPLE 2: America has a lower life expectancy that most developed countries. (SAMPLE MISSING INFO: Deaths from murder (in lib cities of course) and auto fatalities... oh, and infant mortality... skew this data heavily)

EXAMPLE 3: People who own guns are more likely to die from them. (SAMPLE MISSING INFO: Suicide by gun (by people who likely would have found another way to commit suicide)... but they make it sound like the stat is about murder and safety by leaving out key information.)

Libs don't operate in the realm of truth because the truth generally doesn't make people want to go be a f*cking liberal/progressive about anything.

There at one point a few countries that did not factor diseases like cancer or things like heart attacks, etc into the mix, either. They just used the numbers from those who died of natural causes.

And of course, the infant mortality stats... what a joke.

If the baby dies within three days of being born, why, that was a miscarriage.

Born premature, ditto.

Weighed less than a certain amount at birth...doesn't count as a birth if it dies (and low infant weight is a huge contributor to infant death, so that's a BFD)

Actually, infant mortality presupposes an infant, so it wouldn't be the viable baby thing. IIRC, it's because the US deems any baby with a heartbeat that is outside the mother to be an infant, where many other countries start counting deaths after the infant leaves the hospital.

They keep doing this every 10-20 years or so.

Some Ed. phd decides they're going to revolutionize teaching math (they've already screwed up history, english and the sciences can't be messed with that much or else things go boom).

I was a student teacher when they introduced the new math with the sets and stuff.

Total. Bullshit.

242 One of my greatest pleasures is to watch cocksure hipsters plan to mock a rube, and walk into a brick wall. Kind of like when smartass computer bullshitters who've spent their "IT" careers one handbook page ahead of the "end users" go home for grandma's birthday, and start throwing credentials and buzzwords around before finding out that the old bachelor uncles have been running the whole farm on a newer OS than they know...get it?

Letterman's early schtick was to find an amusingly hick story in a small town paper in flyover country, and call the local editor, out of the blue, and ask for commentary. He got taken down every damn time. His audience was laughing at him. The hicks knew it was funny. They knew way better than that weatherman.

And I mention this because, Kaufman arranged to have Slim Whitman on SNL, to quip about all those late-night 1-800 greatest hits records. Until old Slim started singing. Kaufman's mouth fell open, and he couldn't close it. Transfixed.

Now I know some of you are really hip, and are too smart to like the yodel, so, fuck you. You've been watching really bad remake SF movie parodies. Slim Whitman had talent and could sing like a damn bird. Kaufman was a "genius."

247 Andy Kaufman was unfunny, pretentious, and more boring than watching milk curdle in the hot sun. He made this feeling occur within 30 seconds, which I guess was an accomplishment. Not everyone can bore you to tears in less than a minute.

And he was never funny. Ever. Not even when he was dead.

248 In the wake of the Paris terror attacks and the arrest last week of an Ohio man who was planning an all-out assault on the U.S. Capitol , the FBI is now revealing how they foiled a planned 2012 terrorist plot on American soil.
Moroccan national Amine El-Khalifi, then 29, of Alexandria, Virginia,was arrested in a parking garage wearing what he thought was an explosive-laden suicide vest in hopes of blowing up the U.S. Capitol.

Actually, infant mortality presupposes an infant, so it wouldn't be the viable baby thing. IIRC, it's because the US deems any baby with a heartbeat that is outside the mother to be an infant, where many other countries start counting deaths after the infant leaves the hospital.

282 Another Euro stats trick: a death is ruled "murder" or "homicide" only if and when it is solved by a trial and conviction. They have a lot of unsolved mystery deaths in the UK. In the US, those are called murders. Gives the US a horrific number rating.

I cited one this morning, about "alcohol-related" car accidents, that InstaPundit picked up on. You won't believe the hoops they jump through to make their case.

It's the closest thing to an old school western that has been made in the last couple decades.

321 What would be the best way to extract the audio part of a YouTube video?

Is there a way/program to download it right out of the browser (Firefox) other than some of those plug-ins (which seem pretty sketchy)?

Is it better to download the whole video then pull out the audio, and would there a recommended program for that method?

Posted by: needing a lil help at January 16, 2015 12:06 AM (yweJB)


Well, short answer: you are hooped, because of DRM issues. Used to be, I could listen to streaming audio, and the sound track of youtube is streaming audio, and record it with any one of a number of recorder programs (Audacity, freeware, is good). But MS implemented some DRM shit at the behest of "content owners", and the ability to record what is going through the sound card has been "grayed out".


Work -arounds: 1. connect "speaker out" to "line in" jacks, and record off "line in". you will need some audio cables, and a dual potentiometer to set record level would be a plus.

2. add a second sound card, loop back output of first sound card to input of add-on card, and run your recorder software off add-on card.


3. find a stand-alone mp3 recorder built into a boom box, and use a cable to feed line-in of the boom box from speaker out of your computer. This one works for me.

I try but I lose that argument. Just yesterday, we heard about a US 2-star. Afg SOF has a good ISR plane, but they won't share assets with Afg AF. So dumbass general thinks we should just buy the same planes for AAF. Initial estimate is $200 M, but that doesn't include basing, training, maintenance, anything. They don't have enough pilots as is, buying more planes won't help. But can't tell that to the generals.

366 Heh, ThunderB. I remember that well. I'm safe; never claimed to be a lumberjack, but I have cut down countless trees in the course of clearing survey lines in the bush. Many, many hours running chainsaw, or swinging an axe. And the closest I came to being offed on the job was when we were running a line up a steep canyon side, and the guy ahead of me dislodged a man-sized rock, which came bouncing down the hillside. He hollered, "Look out, rock", and I dropped my chainsaw, and scrambled 10 yards to one side. That rock landed square on my saw, and drove it down into the duff, and cracked the top cover. Then it rolled a few dozen yards down the hill. I recovered it, and it started right up, cracked cover and all. I still have that saw.


And you should have heard the crash when that rock hit the rocky bottom of the creek down below us!

I hate that particular grammatical error, because it is so common and most people don't even know it's an error and couldn't point it out even if you informed them that something is wrong with the sentence.

To avoid ambiguity, one needs to say

"Thanks to the Internet, I have probably seen more naked ladies than have all of my ancestors combined."

Otherwise, you are actually saying, without realizing you are saying,

"Thanks to the Internet, I have probably seen more naked ladies than I have seen of my ancestors."

383 Re: Snipers killing. I have some personal experience in this particular area. It is actually difficult to find soldiers (sailors, Marines) who will shoot someone who is not shooting at them. The prohibition against killing is deeply ingrained in us. There's a famous statistic that only 25% of American infantry soldiers in combat in WWII ever fired their rifles in a manner aimed to hit a human being (as opposed to launching bullets in the general direction of the enemy). Through better training methods (e.g., silhouette targets rather than bullseye targets) and changes in weaponry, we have managed to get that figure up, but still that is in infantry combat as a member of a unit. A sniper and spotter (they always work as a team) survive by not being conspicuous or attracting attention; by definition, almost always the target is unaware of their presence. Under those conditions, it is still hard to find people who can be trained to shoot to kill. During the Munich hostage situation in 1972, a German GSG9 sniper had clean shots at the terrorists and froze on the trigger. There is a strong, but by no means perfect, correlation between good combat snipers and hunters. Like Delta operators, the effective sniper is almost never a gung-ho, heavily muscled and tattooed "warrior" type often found in infantry units (and among security contractors taking too many 'roids and spending too much time in the weight room). The effective sniper is often highly disciplined, which weeds out the psychopathic killers. Again, we hope we are doing better now at finding the right people, but it remains a highly subjective and little-understood area of human psychology.

Komsomolskaya Pravda used to be the newspaper of the Komsomol, the Soviet youth group.

The Pravda of today is actually a pretty good newspaper with straight news. Komsomolskaya Pravda is over the top like all good tabloids.

"Thanks to the Internet, I have probably seen more naked ladies than all of my ancestors combined."



I hate that particular grammatical error, because it is so
common and most people don't even know it's an error and couldn't point
it out even if you informed them that something is wrong with the
sentence.



To avoid ambiguity, one needs to say



"Thanks to the Internet, I have probably seen more naked ladies than have all of my ancestors combined."



Otherwise, you are actually saying, without realizing you are saying,



"Thanks to the Internet, I have probably seen more naked ladies than I have seen of my ancestors."

Well...uh.... half of them kind of HAVE to be.... Ladies at least...
Posted by: BB Wolf


Precisely my point.

And all ladies are naked at some point.

So it actually becomes an interesting calculation.

Let's say (with rough estimates) that modern humanity has been around for approximately 200,000 years.

Throughout that time, until recently, naked ladies got pregnant not long after hitting puberty, so the average length of a "generation" for most of that time was about 15 years.

That means that you have had 200,000 ÷ 15 = 13,333 generations of human ancestors, with a dad and a mom in each one, meaning 13,333 naked lady ancestors.

Now, everyone can just look down and see their own naked body at some point in their lives, so your naked lady ancestors have at least seen themselves, which would mean that your ancestors have seen at a minimum 13,333 naked ladies.

But, presumably, all or most of your grandmommies have seen other naked ladies in their families or clans or hunting tribes or whatever. So let's just say that each female ancestor saw three other naked females in her life, would would make that total, 53,333 naked ladies being seen by your ancestors.

Now, let's hope that not all of your make ancestors only ever saw one naked lady in their lives, so let's be modest and say that they saw, in addition to their spouses (who don't count again in our totals, since they've been seen by themselves) three other naked ladies, That adds 39,999 to 53,333 to make 93,332, which we can round up to 100,000 named ladies being seen by your ancestors.

But once we get into the era of printing, that number goes up exponentially, as you recent ancestors could have seen naughty French postcards, Playboy, and so on; and even more recently, porn flicks, etc.

So, based on no facts whatsoever, let's toss in another 100,000 for your recent ancestors, for a grand total of 200,000 naked ladies being seen by your ancestors.

Has the average man seen more than 200,000 naked ladies on the Internet? You tell me.

*** All numbers totally unreliable. Plus I probably did the math wrong, and probably left out about a million cavemen who counted as ancestors in some way.

Posted by: weft cut-loop at January 16, 2015 02:20 AM (3CiXB)

422 Actually, zombie, the math is somewhat hairier.

I have one direct female ancestor in the previous generation, but _two_ in the one before that, and _four_ in the one before that...

But it doesn't stay a pure geometric progression for long, as surely back in the day I have some ancestors from Arkansas or something.

So if we run with your figure of 13,333 generations, then the number of direct female ancestors rises to 2^13,332 or thereabouts as a maximum, minus some constraining factor having to do with the historical rates of incest, however much removed.

Beat that, internet porn.

I've been doing a bunch of wood in my mill, as well.

A lot of stuff on the mill is "deferred" -- for instance, I have yet to tram the table or square the Z, because (a) I'm picking up a side-to-side gauge at LMS on 2/5, and (b) I want to build a rigid frame to flop the Z column with screws before I mess with it -- and that means (c) bolting the mill down, 'cause it's just teetering there now.

I did use the mini-mill to make a fence for the micro-mill, which was a microproject that made me happy.

433 The table I decided to put my mill on has strong edge supports but a weak middle, so I went ahead and built a riser out of on-edge 1x4's and plywood top/bottom to distribute the weight.

Two of the 1x4's are on the ends of the riser, and the other two pass directly under the mill footprint, just inside the bolt holes with which it is secured to the riser.

The spaces in between the 1x4's got filled with drawers. Bits on the left, collets and indicators in the middle, and everything else in the wide drawer on the right.

435 So I got a new kilt in Navy Edzell tartan but I'm too f'n fat for it. It's not a very good kilt, f'rinstance it is pleated to the stripe but not very well because the stripes don't show (pleated to the sett would repeat the pattern, which it definitely does not do).

So I'm on a weight losing kick now, which I'm doing by not allowing my fat ass to eat anything more than 1 serving of 1 item for any meal (serving size to be determined by package information, IE if the serving size says 6 meatballs then that's ALL you can have for that meal is 6 meatballs, etc). It's going to take some will power but wrapping that kilt around my fat ass and having to gasp for breath is a pretty good motivator.


When I get the weight down I plan to make my own, but the fabric alone is going to run a little over $45 per yard (three yards needed, it's 2 yards wide so that will make 6, plenty for what I need).


And that's the interesting thing that's happening right now in the House of GGE.

Japan was a big offender in the area of cancer. For decades nutritionists were convince there must be some special anti-cancer quality to the traditional Japanese diet but it was simply untrue. What there was is a tradition of not telling terminally ill patients the truth and sending them home to decline and die in their own time. This skewed the stats quite a lot.

From a Popular Mechanics thing from the late 60s or early 70s, I got the idea of a modular workshop -- with a variety of tools mounted to 2'x2' plywood squares. You could slide 'em into racks for storage, and pop 'em into workcenters for use.....and clamp 'em into those workcenters for rough use. Somewhere around 2010, I did that, and (in general) it's worked out well. The problem is that I'd need 2x the garage to do it properly -- and, every time I move certain equipment, a shop crane to boot.

My design standards are a bit less refined than yours. The majority of my tools are bolted to 2x4's which are deckscrewed from the plywood side. That said, you can rotate them to any angle with the plywood.

You may want to keep your eye on http://tinyurl.com/kc4hwhx . The standard HF one is VERY limited (as in, is 2" shorter than it's spec'd). And, BTW, if you think that the initial expense for mill tooling is outrageous, prepare to have your mind blown.

452 I've heard that about the HF shorty. Although, LMS does sell a replacement bed that is significantly longer, which might make for an interesting project.

Then again, at that point why not just go for the HF 7x12? Shipping is _much_ lower than from LMS, and those coupons are still out there.

Plus, I think I could fit it on top of my pocket table saw, behind the chop saw.

That is the SAG rules for actors. For instance, Michael J. Fox was just Michael Fox in his early work on Canadian TV but when he came to Hollywood he needed to distinguish himself from the much older Michael Fox.

You could have a dozen people all named Christopher Lloyd making a movie so long as only one of them was a SAG performer.

I've heard that about the HF shorty. Although, LMS does sell a
replacement bed that is significantly longer, which might make for an
interesting project.



Then again, at that point why not just go for the HF 7x12? Shipping
is _much_ lower than from LMS, and those coupons are still out there.



Plus, I think I could fit it on top of my pocket table saw, behind the chop saw.

Posted by: Piercello at January 16, 2015 03:26 AM (JybVy)


Wow, the HF 7x12 is currently only $50 more than the 7x10???? I got my 7x10 on a decent deal, but the 7x12 was out of reach at the time.

This is a nice table to ponder -- http://tinyurl.com/l6vcord .

Japan was a big offender in the area of cancer. For decades
nutritionists were convince there must be some special anti-cancer
quality to the traditional Japanese diet but it was simply untrue. What
there was is a tradition of not telling terminally ill patients the
truth and sending them home to decline and die in their own time. This
skewed the stats quite a lot.

I can see government controlled
doctors adopting this policy in the US to save money on expensive
treatments, especially on older patients who are regarded as a deficit
all around.


Posted by: Epobirs at January 16, 2015 02:53 AM (IdCqF)"

One of the other aspects of Japanese statistics is that if a mother drowns her two children and then herself, that is recorded as three suicides. If a man strangles his wife and two children and then hangs himself that would be counted as four suicides. This gives the Japanese a very high suicide rate and a very low homicide rate according to official figures.

Yet a third way of skewing statistics (I don't know if Japan does this, but Britain does), if there is no one convicted for the murder it's not a murder, so the homicide rate is lower. This, BTW, is why you really can't compare US "gun deaths" to any other country, it's not only apples and oranges, it's apples and school buses.

515 Well, while we're all sitting here, here's the weekly Ziegfeld Girl, Dorothy Dalton (a bit NSFW):

http://goo.gl/UAtkg9

She performed on Broadway from 1919-1920, but had been a popular screen actress from 1914 through 1924, appearing with Rudolph Valentino and H.B. Warner. In 1924, she retired from the screen, marrying Oscar Hammerstein II, the uncle of lyricist Oscar Hammerstein (of Rodgers and Hammerstein fame).

How about a couple of stories?

Crooner Tony Martin (who, lucky man, was married to Cyd Charisse), was complaining to a friend that a Hollywood career was full of pitfalls. "One day," he lamented, "you're making love to Berry Grable or Linda Darnell or Lana Turner. Then the next day - poof! - you're a has-been."

"True,"
his friend agreed, "but look where you has been!"

A Lana Turner story: one night in the 50s, she showed up at Romanoff's (a swanky Hollywood restaurant) dressed in a daring, low cut evening gown. Atttached to a fragile chain around her neck was a golden replica of an airplane which nestled provocatively within her cleavage.

Romanoff turned to writer Charles Brackett. "What do you think of Lana's airplane?"

"Lovely,"
breathed Brackett ecstatically. "And what a landing field!"

Here's Turner in 1941s Honky Tonk:

Unity means not having discrete, self-regulating heavily stereotyped identity cliques that they can manipulate against each other for political gain, in the high school writ large system they call diversity and multiculturalism. Naturally, since give them more levers to control people, it and its mechanisms must be hijacked and turned hypocritical such as tolerance, or outright destroyed such as assimilation.

Accidental word omissions, the line should read: "Since unity doesn't give them more levers to control people..."

On a related note, today is payday and I'm really considering dropping the company health care and going with Tricare only. It's not as good as it once was and they are charging me more for it since I've declined to participate in their screening program. Thanks Obamacare, may all who were involved in passing this POS suffer a long time with wasting rot of the crotchal area.

He didn't, and mostly because Levin completely ignored the issue. And it is a big issue.

Levin likes Rand a lot. I like Levin but this is some bad judgement on his part.

Rand may have made it a stipulation.

While Paul is not his father, this is a huge wedge issue, and an anchor that will never help him. His father is an @$$ for not seeing what he is doing to his son.

Course, we don't know if Paul has the same views. It's possible.

561 In 2010, a police search of the computers of Cherif Kouachi and Amedy Coulibaly revealed traces of child porn images the two men had stored and later erased, French media reported.

Detectives found five child porn photos on Coulibaly's laptop and another 37 on Kouachi's PC. Kouachi's stash included sickening pictures of young boys and girls involved in sexual acts with adults, Le Canard Enchaîné newspaper reported.

However, last week's attacks shed a new light on the case, with some analysts suggesting that rather than being paedophiles [like the Prophet], the gunmen might have used child porn websites as a secure means of communication to share other information.

I live in united state, Two years ago i married a lady called saline, we had two children together, we were very happy to be husband and wife, so when i travel on a business trip to Brazil, i spent a year in Brazil due to my kind of business, i and my wife talked on phone all the time, we chatted on the Internet, i never knew that my wife had started cheating on me by going out with her old school friend called Mark, i never knew something was going wrong till i came back from my trip, then i and My wife started having problems, she goes out and come back late at night, she changed in a strange way that i could not endure, i tried to do everything to please her but it got worst, so one day she left the house and never came back, i tried reaching her but no way i could reach her, i never knew she had travelled with her new lover which was Mark, i wanted her so much because of the children she left for me and because i loved her so much too, because of the heart break she has put me into, i went into search of a real magic spell caster though I was scammed twice by a spell caster, but I never relented in my search because I wanted a happy life with my wife, So one morning i saw a testimony about a spell caster Esango Priest, so i contacted him and to my greatest surprise this esangopriest@gmail.com made life manful for me again, my wife came back to me after 3 days of a love spell from this Esango Priest, i took her back and I am now settled with my wife by the magic power of Esango Priest .
