Overnight Open Thread (17 Jan 2015)

I'm still having desktop computer power up issues. No joy with the troubleshooting so far so this ONT is gonna be weaker than normal. Y'all just gonna have to deal with it.

Sadly, I don't think the Bergdahl report is going to be what it should be. Generals are politicians too and I'm sure this WH has impressed upon them that they either rule as they want or get replaced.

In White House terms, not charging Bergdahl means that he was indeed worth the trade for the Taliban Five. But charging him on any level means that releasing the five Taliban was an error of monstrous proportions, one the administration will never be able to explain away satisfactorily.

R2D2 With Subtitles


R2D2 Subtitles by eclecticmethod

Combat Car

A Romanian combat car. Looks better than some of those technical vehicles in use by those individuals prone to workplace violence not in the name of Islam. Then again, there are some pretty big guns on those technicals.

LCS

Well this ought to fix the combat capability of the LCS. Let's just call it a Frigate now.

Remakes and Reboots

Seems like Hollywood is still out of ideas. Fox confirms 'X-Files' reboot talks are ongoing. Now if they cast Christina Hendricks as Scully, I might tune in.

Then there is the remake of Escape From New York. At least John Carpenter is involved with it. So who should play Snake Plissken? Gerard Butler?

Smart Power

Europeans not amused by John Kerry's performance.

Another Idiot Gets Fired

Another idiot gets fired for participating in the I-93 protest. Get this though, she had a job with the city as a 'gender and migration consultant'. That job title alone should get one fired.

14 The problem with "gender and migration consultant" is that it never goes away even if the individual in the role gets fired.

Woman I went to school with many years ago, after we parted ways she went Ivy, pedigree out the ass, could have done anything. Anyway, she came aboard a very large research facility as their first diversity specialist. She is horribly unprofessional on social media and nothing short of a perpetually-offended, -ism-baiting spaz. I would not have a job if I behaved like she did - but she'll basically be untouchable given the role she's in. That institution will forever pay one of the unspoken taxes of progressivism by having to employ someone in a role that eats away at actual productive resources or be accused of horrible intolerance.

21 "Then there is the remake of Escape From New York. At least John Carpenter is involved with it. So who should play Snake Plissken? Gerard Butler?"

IIRC, there was talk of an EfNY remake with Gerald Butler in the middle 2000's after 300 was a success. Fortunately those talks fell through until now.

There is a kind of unofficial Snake Plissken in Space movie called Lockout (2012). Guy Pierce plays the Plissken-like character (but he's more witty in this) who has to infiltrate a space prison to rescue the President's daughter from criminals. It's not a great movie, but it's not bad either.

35 Is Carpenter directing? It's possible to remake EFNY and do it well, but, they're gonna be up against it to do that. I'm not sure EFNY as a remake could benefit from a "what if it was done today" kind of novelty, even if done well. Dunno. It's not that kind of classic. Best left as a part of it's time. In any event, perhaps Mark Wahlberg to fill in for Kurt. Though the Plissken role might not be ideally suited for Wahlberg.

And CDR M, X-files isn't a re-boot start over. It'll be a limited series like 24 was, down to the original stars. I've seen recent interviews where Duchovny is now onboard with new Xfiles. And the truth about what was out there never did get revealed. Could be good. And even if its just decent, that would be better than most of what's on the boobeh tube.

42 CDR M, I call bullshit on you and Bill Cowan. You don't know who you are talking about.

I personally know Ken Dahl and have known him for nearly 30 years. He is as straight an arrow as they come. I guarantee that the 15-6 investigation is going to lay out the facts.

No one can say what the chain of command will do with it, but the report is going to be completely factual.

For what it's worth, he is the Deputy Commander of I Corps and Fort Lewis, Washington. That is a retirement job. He isn't going anywhere further career-wise, and he knows it, and the Chief of Staff knows it, too, which I'm sure figures into why he was assigned to do the investigation.

If you think you have some inside information or that Bill Cowan is doing anything other than talking out of his ass, which he does frequently, I'd love to hear your facts. Otherwise, this is a gratuitous smear on someone who did nothing to earn it.

73 So, update to the Morning thread from this morning, regarding my sister and the Kentucky Derby baby shower.

Mom and I tried talking her into a classic children's literature baby shower instead. She is a smart gal. And we both spent a large chunk of our childhood summers at the library. She likes to read.

I kid you not. The response was baffling. I don't know if she read it on some hippy dippy website, or if it was put in her head by some hippy dippy friend, but it came from somewhere. There's no way she came up with it on her own.

Anyway, I guess all her friends have had whimsical baby showers. And, book showers are, and I quote, "pretentious." That's right, folks. Storybooks are pretentious. As she explained it, it implies that your child is going to be a reader and be learned. And, it says to your guests that you are thinking of your child as a future intellectual, not as "just a child with no expectations"

I mean, we aren't talking Shakespeare here. We're talking Cat in the Hat and Curious George. I can't believe we have reached a point where children's literature is considered pretentious, and even non-psychos like my sister can fall into the trap of not wanting to come across as offensive to people.

Lord help us all.

Am I the only one who has noticed the Navy's cunning plan ... to use the power of the IRS?

I assure you, the current pope is the least of our worries.

The real damage to the Catholic church comes from the child molesting priests and those Bishops who covered it up. (Sadly my diocese is one of them)

It is also damaged priests and Bishops who have turned their churches and masses into a Sunday morning fundraiser on EWTN. My old parish got so bad, literally every weekend, the homily focused on money. Money and accepting illegal immigration. That was it.

Then don't -- follow the wires to where it connects to the PC board, then try jumpering that -- if the machine starts, it's a bad switch. Drill a hole where it's easier to get to, put in your own switch, and wire it to the PC board.

305 270 251 And, are you happy that the Catholic church has turned into indoctrinating people about accepting illegal immigrants?

I'm Catholic and I have not been indoctrinated. I go to church to pray and hear the gospel and take Communion. I am not bound to agree with them on immigration or the wonderfulness of Islam or politcal issues in general (except for abortion, which is a mortal sin) - only the basic doctrine.

The good thing about old Catholic churches is if the priest starts talking like a SJW there are plenty of things to look at -statues, stained glass windows, the Stations of the Cross....

The priest at the Latin Mass I sometimes attends give a good old fashioned sermon. I like that. So does his (mainly young, John Paul II generation) congregation.

Posted by: Donna &&&&&& V. (brandishing ampersands) at January 17, 2015 11:06 PM (+XMAD)

306 I guess...and this is coming from a Catholic's point of view...we see the Pope as kind of...a far off ruler. The priests and bishops in the diocese and the Cardinals on a bigger scale are the ones making the decisions, implementing those decision.

And, I think there is a massive disconnect between Rome and some local parish in Omaha or wherever. If a priest wants to talk about money every single Sunday, they can. Theoretically, yes, parishioners can raise concerns to bishops, and maybe something can happen on a diocesan level. But, usually things don't escalate past that level.

So, if a priest or bishop is corrupt or goes rogue or anything like that...it's probably not getting back to Papa Francesco.

And, I just know from personal experience....people tend to care more about their local priest and what their priest is telling them than what the Pope says.

Oh I don't the low-info populace care about Selma's historical inaccuracies. They're not going to see it because it's a boring-ass movie about some dead guy.

I think Americans have had quite enough of the race card.

Although the last movie I saw was "42" - about Jackie Robinson. I liked it not only because I'm a big baseball fan, but because I genuinely admire Robinson, who believed in hard work, not welfare programs. He was a Republican and toward the end of his life (he died in the early '70's) was mocked by the radical types, who called him an "Uncle Tom." Radical types who wouldn't have lasted 5 minutes putting up with the shit Robinson endured when he joined the Dodgers.

Looked at the tube -- 1/8". Looked at the collet -- 1/16". Sneered at the inspection notice....

Yup, he's in favor of giving more to the FSA.



Yes, that was tonight's theme. Apparently, St. Ignatius gave up all
his wealth and to hare off and be holy in the desert. Well, awesome for
you, dude. Kudos and all.



But he *wanted* to do that. Being compelled to do that by the
government is slavery. It's not an act of spirituality or charity. This
priest was basically telling the congregation to be happy and accepting
of being forced to "help eradicate poverty."

438 427 Name me one black character, movie or television, that could be remade with a white person- that would EVER see the light of day.

Way back when, plenty of characters written as Asians got played by whites. Ming the Merciless comes immediately to mind.

Arabs, same thing: "Dune". (At least the miniseries got an Italian to play the Byzantine guy, Shaddam IV... I'd have preferred a Greek or Sicilian but whattayagonnado.)

"Prince of Persia" couldn't find any Persians... nobody who's played Khan Noonien Singh was ever a Sikh or a Punjabi...

There was a carousel (like this http://tinyurl.com/qzs5saj ) , slides, jungle gym, and one of those spinning rides, where each kid sits opposite the other (kind of like a see-saw) and pumps on the handles and footrests to make the thing spin.

I think you're right actually.

It's not so much protection of artistic integrity. It's protection of black sensitivity. Nobody cares about east Asians (Ming / Chinese) or central Asians (Fremen / Arabs, Persians / freakin' Persians). So the suits'll hire whatever white honky shows up willing to wear makeup, talk with an accent and squint.

I don't really want whites to take over black roles, any more than I want blacks to take over white roles. I don't care about racial sensitivities at all, really. I do care about ruining the original author's creative vision. For some reason.

If you want to save a good dime over Jim Beam, for a smoother Bourbon with a nearly identical profile, then try some Tom Sims Bourbon.

Try it soon, thank me later. Oh, and don't muck about, just buy the 1.75ml large bottle, and be done with it. You'll regret buying smaller.

I took a bottle of Sims to the deer lease last month. Everyone with Woodford Reserve, Maker's, Knob Creek and other pricey Bourbons, ended up preferring the Sims.

I'm thinking it's work putting a few cases, (yes, literally) into the SHTF storage, to compliment the Val U Rite. The Sims, for my useage. Val U Rite for trade, barter, wound care and engine starting.

And yes, Ima go see Sniper, soon. Probably a weekday showing, early as they open.

506 I can recall when there was only the Church proper, and the Quonset Hut. No building along Sherwood.



I used to ride a lawnmower engine powered car around in the parking
lot. For years, there was a playground where the newer buildings are
now.

There was a carousel (like this http://tinyurl.com/qzs5saj ) ,
slides, jungle gym, and one of those spinning rides, where each kid sits
opposite the other (kind of like a see-saw) and pumps on the handles
and footrests to make the thing spin.

Yes, all correct, I helped build the other buildings. If you are in CLT, my son's Eagle project was the water fountain that faces Province Rd come have a drink.

I can bounce back pretty fast.....but, as I tell the phlebotomists -- don't try to soft-pedal it, it's a phobia -- it's not supposed to make sense. If I had my druthers, they could take a small pair of pliers and rip a piece of my skin off to get their sample -- and the more they talk about "it's so tiny, you'll hardly feel it", the worse it gets. Last time I went in, I told the guy my standard schpiel about "don't bother telling me to breathe, it just annoys me......and if, by chance, I do pass out.....finish the draw."

[I'd much prefer the alternative instructions: "if I pass-out halfway through this, and wake up finding out you stopped and I have to do it all over again -- I will hurt you." I have stopped breathing for a minute or two, but have not yet passed out.]

If you want to save a good dime over Jim Beam, for a smoother Bourbon with a nearly identical profile, then try some Tom Sims Bourbon.

Bing searches reviews, here: http://tinyurl.com/pgltw65

Try it soon, thank me later. Oh, and don't muck about, just buy the 1.75ml large bottle, and be done with it. You'll regret buying smaller.

I took a bottle of Sims to the deer lease last month. Everyone with Woodford Reserve, Maker's, Knob Creek and other pricey Bourbons, ended up preferring the Sims.

I'm thinking it's work putting a few cases, (yes, literally) into the SHTF storage, to compliment the Val U Rite. The Sims, for my useage. Val U Rite for trade, barter, wound care and engine starting.

So, at least you'll know what you're looking for. Seems to be limited distribution out there. Try Spec's Finer Foods & Liquors, in the Houston market. Spec's is the 800 lb. Gorilla of liquor chains in this part of Texas, and is growing into Austin and San Antonio, too.

Like any other spirit, if your local outlet doesn't carry it....give 'em a printout of the label, and tell them to ask their distributor(s). Sooner or later, one of 'em will round it up and bring it in.

Ming the Merciless wasn't Asian. He was an alien, from Mongo. Though the Han from the original Buck Rogers novel were kind of Asian, though at the end hinted to be the product of aliens entering the Asian gene pool.

Khan was the product of genetic engineering. He looked like whatever they wanted him to look like. That they wanted a big buff Euro-Mexican but gave him that name is the mystery.

Glad she's resilient like that.

It is entirely to her credit that she has managed to keep moving forward.

642 Essentially, if you were casting a giant badass guy from India in 1967, who had to speak perfect English, who would you have gotten.

It's the same problem with non-humanoid characters. CG can fill some of the gap if you have the budget but actors who can play the parts aren't easy to find. Then there is the problem of making them into exaggerated cartoons if the audience is supposed to empathize with them. That wasn't a problem for the Gorn on Enterprise, which was nicely scary and pretty good for TV.

A 'Beta' that assassinates the bulk of the Star Fleet command and escapes? A 'Beta' that resides on the Klingon homeworld undetected?

Soomigo, this 'Beta' is not what you think it means.

The problem is that there are two sorts of regulations -- best practices, and restraints on competition -- and politics is exactly the wrong way to tell the difference.

Yes, they are limited. My cars are permitted by law to pick up in one City and one full County in the NW Atlanta suburbs. Taxi drivers that are good develop regular clients, and they want reliable services wherever they may want to be picked up. So, my drivers do that, at some risk. The County that we have one cities permits in has 3 large cab companies in it. We have tried for County wide permits for the last year. The County has told me that they are proud of,their,reputation for regulating quality, while those in charge of this,do not even live in this County or use their services. When told "Customers self,regulate quality of services", I was met with a blank stare.

Why, it's almost as if these Govt. Drones have never had any competition in providing the services they are charged with regulating.

Any government-enforced monopoly breaks down when the amount of government graft paid gets close to the costs of circumventing government controls.

This has, historically been looked at in the applied area -- "too high customs duties encourages smuggling" or "excess cigarette taxes encourages sale of 'loosies'." But there is a larger principle to be observed.

694 I'm certainly not what a driver would consider a good client - or regular, anyway. I may use a cab once every couple of years, so I don't know local regs, just know that it's a racket.

Out of town? Different story. I find a e cent driver, get his cell, and call him directly. Worked everywhere. Chicago - "Take me to the best Blues club in town." "Sorry, sir. I can't take you there - it ain't safe. But I've got a great place for you".
Seattle, Denver, Charlotte - good experiences.
New Orleans? The first cabby I called was cool. "Mind if I smoke?"
"Is it a joint?"
"Well, I have one of those, too..." (that was years ago, btw)

This guy actually took my drunk buddy home with him, put him on his family couch, then brought him back before 7am to get to work the next morning. Refused to take him out to the seedy side of town.
That guy made $1000 in a week of tips just from 3 of us. THAT was a driver.

Wait until you discover the joys of milling plastic. You can do so many cool things with it (you can CNC-carve smoke-colored plastic to where you can hold it up to the light and see a picture).....but, half the time you work with it, you melt plastic onto your cutter.

And here's where the bonus points come in.....there are about 47,000 flavors of plastic, all of whom need different feed rates to get nice chips and no melt....

Incidentally, didn't you have to project the splices live? I had friends in AV in the early 80's (one was later a roommate -- we're godparents of the other's three kids.) That was around 1982, and would be interesting that the changeover happened before '85.

713 Incidentally, didn't you have to project the splices live?

Dunno what you mean. You cut the film, one side on a frame line, one side 1 sprocket hole over. Then you overlap them by 1 sprocket hole, put tape across, bring the cutter down, turn the film over and do it again. All of this is done on the rewind table, not in the projector. Here's a vid of the process, although this guy does a butt splice. Overlap splices are stronger (but you do lose one frame of film when you tear the movie down).

Old Style: While projecting a film, you find that you're getting to the end of a reel. You've loaded the next reel on the second projector. While all the action in the film is directed toward the upper left, there is a blip on the lower right -- you start the second projector. A few minutes later, the action onscreen fades to black......and then the second blip on the lower right. You turn off the first projector.

That's the way it was done for all the years before projectors could take the whole flick in one go.

That's not splicing, that's a changeover. It was automated long before my time, although I did occasionally have to do it manually working a side job screening films for, IIRC, an advertising agency. Each reel is threaded on a seven second leader, when you see the first changeover marker(black dot, upper right) you start the second projector. 6 seconds later you see the second dot, you simultaneously close the douser on the first projector, open it on the second, and stamp on the petal that transfers the sound source from machine one to machine two. Then you rewind the first reel, thread the third reel onto the first projector, and in twenty minutes do it all over again going the other way. As you said, old school. Real old school is carbon arc lamps. I never worked with one of those.

742 Juvenile spotted skunk. Turned on the dryer to spook him out. Left some cheap chorizo outside the door. Now awaiting the inevitable raccoon attack. This naturally can't happen in, say, July, when leaving a door open doesn't cost a small fortune...

744 I once had stapler open for some reason and fumble it so it swung around and drove a staple into my bare knee. I didn't really hurt but that might have been because I was so stunned. I pulled it out easily and it bled a little. That was it. The shock was worse than any pain I might have felt otherwise.

When I was 8 or 9, my brothers, two and four years older than me, were wrestling when the younger found something my mother had lost: a needlepoint needle. Anyone familiar knows these are big blunt things. It went in my brother's leg and kept moving as his muscles involuntarily spasmed from the pain. The hospital used a pair of magnets to hold it in place so they could go after it without making it a fishing expedition. To this day he has a scar at the bottom right of his left knee that looks like a fat earthworm. That was pretty painful but he beat that about seven years later in a motorcycle crash that broke the femur of the same leg and bruised his entire groin. He was airborne for about 15 feet and landed face first but fortunately was wearing a full face helmet. Anything else is a joke. Looking at the front of that helmet later, he would he either been DRT or horribly disfigured.

Anyway, after that, he said the needle in his leg was comparatively not so bad.

745 I don't know if I'm the only one like this, but sometimes I look back at things that I did as a kid and I'm embarrassed... today. One of those things is: the times I'd have someone over to my house and would say "you gotta listen to this - it's the coolest song ever!" and would then play them Revolution 9 or something.

Now I realize that this is perfectly normal behavior for a 14 year old. And I realize that I actually got turned on to some awesome music when my friends did this to me, and vice versa - I really did turn people on to some great stuff.

BUT... seeing my kids do it, today, makes me cringe because as often as not you can see the pain on the other person's face. "Damn, I have to listen to this crap for 5 minutes or I'm being rude..." You can read their minds, and you KNOW it was that way when YOU were 14.

So I watch the Secretary of State of the United States and WHAMMO! I am transported back.

It's not "tone-deafness." It's so far beyond that... I'm not sure there are words for this.

We have juveniles and imbeciles running our country. That's the only conclusion that fits this bizarro-world scenario...

746 So a Finnish gender-obsessed bitch comes over here and blocks our Interstates. Not only should she be fired. She should be deported.

But her firing warms up my breakfast nonetheless.
