Overnight Open Thread (7 Feb 2015)

Al Reuters really needs to think about the adjectives they use in their headlines. Take this one today. Grisly Guantanamo stories refuse to go away. Grisly? Really? I would think that word would be more applicable to say maybe describing what ISIS did to that Jordanian pilot. Or maybe to describe what befell the other hostages that have been murdered. Or maybe what Boko Haram is doing in Africa. But to use it in conjunction with sleep deprivation, being chained to the floor, being tormented by a dominatrix, etc is pretty silly.

Another example of the overdramatization of stories. You know, like what Brian Williams does.

Prison Break

Well this is an interesting prison break story. 28 inmates escape prison after women in sexy outfits 'seduce' wardens, promise orgy.

Investigators say that at around 3 a.m. on Thursday morning, some women approached the prison dressed in sexy fantasy police officer costumes. The women asked the wardens if they could come inside and drink. The wardens let them in and proceeded to party with the women before leaving their designated to posts to take part in an orgy promised by the scantily clad women.

The report claims that the women then drugged the guards with spiked whiskey and lured the guards away from their posts with promises of an orgy. Instead of an orgy, the guards were stripped naked and handcuffed. The women then stole the guards keys and unlocked all the jail cells. The prisoners who wanted to escape simply walked out the front door.

The Crusades

A little refresher on the Crusades.

Now here's a professor from Colombia University defending Obama's statements about Christianity the other day. I'm pretty confused with this statement.

In 2015, longstanding religious hatred and political wrangling are again sweeping Europe with their own shadowy sources in the last century. Kings, princes and politicians again employ draconian measures to control criticism and stop change. In this global struggle, villages have been destroyed, schools bombed, and disease left unchecked. Nor have our contemporaries lacked imagination in their violence. Schoolgirls have been kidnapped, journalists beheaded, and interrogation methods enhanced.

The religious violence sweeping Europe is being committed by militant Islamists, not Christians and it isn't exactly shadowy. I suppose it is shadowy if you call them disaffected youths. Global violence is being directed AGAINST Christians. In 2014, nearly 5,000 Christians were killed and over 1,000 churches were attacked. Where's that list of Christians attacking muslims or their places of worship in the name of God?

Star Trek Van

Anyone need a van with custom Star Trek paint job (some of the images might be NSFW).

Gun Humor

Looks about right for how often Hollywood types have to reload in movies.


This comment for the video cracked me up.
Could you please add an NSFW tag to this video, there was some extremely obvious rape-themed imagery. The ammunition slot represents the female vagina; strong, independant, free. The magazine represents the male phallus; Time after time males force it into our magazine slot and blame us for the way we look, then they leave us without so much as a thank you. It's sickening seeing Reddit support rape, and they say Rape Culture doesn't exist!

Question of the Night:

Why Are Cats Cute?

I'm not arguing whether cats are cute -- they are. I'm asking why we humans think they're cute. What is it about their cute little cat-faces we find so adorable?

Feline aesthetics, what they all about?

If you don't like cats, or don't want to admit you think [most] cats are cute, puppies, then.

What's the psychology behind it? There are certain cues or triggers to cats and dogs that we find aesthetically pleasing. What are they?

106 ID show Sex Sent Me to the Slammer episode last night.

BDSM retard decides to be extra special in treating his girlfriend for Valentines Day. So ties her up with hands behind her back and puts tape on her mouth. Then puts her in the back of the car.

He then goes shopping for gifts for her. All the while yelling at her and promising to punish her. People see this going on. Two call the cops. Alas the one time I really wanted some thug-military cops to beat down the BDSM retard, it did not happen. The 'loving' couple were sentenced to community service.

This happened in Portland, OR.

109 they do that to me too.

The problem with being in a plan is that they won't release the next prescription until enough time has elapsed that your out of the last. So sometimes you're "too soon".

For some people this has to be stress inducing.

me, I had extras from when I self medicated so I'm about 2- 3 months ahead on most of the critical stuff.

I don't mind considering the price.

112 Carol, I don't live in those towns, but rather, down here on the Gulf Coast, in Galveston.

But, I've read of the things you're looking for in a place to settle, and those are some damn fine towns in lush Eastern portion of the Texas Hill Country. And, you'll find them populated by salt-of-the-earth, Moron grade Texas Citizens, of the first order.

Classic, small town Americana, interwoven into much of what's best about Texas. And, you're in the heart of the Texas Wildflower areas..... Springtime there is every bit as stunning as the Autumn Leaves in Vermont.

I've extensively traveled those areas, mostly from the seat of a Honda Gold Wing. But also, I've hunted deer and hog on ranches in the area, I've enjoyed many a civic festival, rodeo, BBQ cook off and other such festivities.

If I weren't such a rabid salt-water dog, I'd be living up there, already.

I'll shoot you a mail, but my addy is in my nic here, too.

138 The main difficulty in milking a moose is that moose nipples are surprisingly small and the udder is usually an internal structure. So it helps to have really long thin fingers, a trait that is common in Down Easters.

GI Joe with the kung fu grip would also do well as a moose dairyman.

I would guess unemployment.

A lot of people say there last job was something else because they don't want to find work doing that again. So they pick a different job to say so they don't get hired.

That's why the "truck driver" and "Secretary" thing. That's the jobs THEY WANT TO GET not the jobs they have.

I had suggested to Carol, that "heaven on Earth" towns in Texas would be:


Copperas Creek
Lampasas
Burnet
Marble Falls
Fredricksburg
Kerrville


There are many, many others, but those are in a particular sweet spot, towards the Eastern end of the Texas Hill Country. More lush and green than the more Western end out around Bandera. That said, Kerrville is closer to Bandera, but it's a great place.

All those towns are but an hour from either Austin or San Antonio. You're not eons from major amenities.

Damn well worth the drive for a scouting trip, if you're so inclined.

192 I had my girlfriend over today. Going through my desk looking for stuff I found my AirSoft Sig P230. It is clear plastic but she was still a little nervous about handling it. She asked what I shot with it and I pointed to the Torchier floor lamp that rings like a cheap top-hat when you hit the reflector.

I spanged a couple of pellets off of it and handed it to her, and she proceeded to shoot the rest of the magazine up, laughing.

She has good muzzle awareness, I hope she is a keeper.

Your daughter I believe still lives is same city or part of Boston & it's part of Boston. My city moves to parks, older brother drives on one of two way streets around.

Here's her bio:

She has negative credentials for what she wrote. She's an "expert" (to whatever extent she is) in 17th century philosophy.

She is literally (not even in the Biden sense) an asshole with an opinion.

And her whole academic oeuvre is bullshit even by academic standards.

She did a neat academic trick, though. She made up a "30 volume set" (none of which is published yet, of course) in which she invites pompous ass academics to blather on. It's brilliant because she interviews them for the book series, they get to know her name, and they think she's awesome because she flatters them.

The TIVO is set up to record new ones and it's not recording it, so it was scheduled to be a re-run tonight.

SNL does about 2 new ones in a row, then takes about 2-3 weeks off before another new show.

Plus next Sunday they are running the 40th Anniversary special in primetime. Saturday night they will be running the first SNL from 1975. It will be curious looking back on the whole show if it was all truly funny, or if it is like the normal and have about 1/4 to 1/2 the show truly funny.

You're loss. She is a very cute actress who has been in at least four movies that I have enjoyed greatly (Charlie Wilson's War, Talladega Nights, Julie and Julia and The Master). If it helps at all (and it probably won't) she reminds me quite a bit of Isla Fisher. Who is also darned cute, in a crazy redhead kind of way.

Oh, yeah, I know it was funny in the past. I used to watch it when it was a new and fresh show. Bassamatic. "Julia Child" gushing blood all over the set and continuing on with her cooking show. Dan Akroyd was one of the best ever on that show.

But it got terrible a long time ago. The most I watch anymore is a few minutes that I get by accident in passing.

I saw a sketch a couple months ago that was some rerun. It had Tina Fey. It was so unfunny, I couldn't believe they even let it on the show. Tina can be funny. I don't like her, but she can be funny. If she didn't hang her head in shame after that thing, she should have.

That's the thing, right there. Everyone can say "I remember when SNL was funny." Because you'd never seen it before and you're still into some juvenile humor.

You can pick skits from every era of SNL and see the standout actors or the biting, witty humor. If you've "seen something like it" before... meh.

Humor is also subjective, so there's that.

Yeah, it did that. But funny is ephemeral, and it lasted longer than most. Phil Hartman. Eddie freaking Murphy in his prime. Even Piscopo doing Sinatra could rock. It had a good run.

I used to watch it religiously. Now, no. I'd watch it again in a heartbeat if it seemed to have its mojo again. Last thing I watched that I liked was an opener with Aaron Paul as the kicker. Decently funny. But a long way from where it was.

By the 20th fake chat show sketch, though, it's just not funny anymore.

The show has always had some good parts, and some really bad parts. The first cast seasons had some very good skits, and some really bad skits. As the show has gone on from season to season, that remained the same for the most part.

The show has had some great cast members, some great casts, some bad cast members, and some shitty casts, but usually they could squeeze a few good laughs.

What was funny was when ABC did "Fridays" in the late 70's. It was when the original cast was ending their run, and the 2nd cast was about ready to start. That show's cast hung with SNL's first cast, and blew the 2nd one away.

448 Right, SNL makes money precisely because it attracts younger viewers. It's actually hard to find exact #s of viewers cause nobody bothers reporting it -- just the # of 18-49 viewers in the demo. That's what the advertisers are paying for.

I did find the last seasons season high was 6.7M total so I think I over-estimated by 8M #.

456 I'm not sure, but I think SNL still gets 8M+ ppl to watch every show. That's quite good. If you can get 2-3% of America to watch your show, you have a hit.
Posted by: Costanza Defense at February 08, 2015 12:23 AM (ZPrif)


Plus, SNL edits down a show to air at 10PM on Saturday night, so NBC doesn't have to put a scripted show/news magazine in that spot and save a shitload of money.

Show is also cheap to produce, so, money, and has the 18-34 demo.

The flag sticker is meant to be _cynically ironic_.

Dunno. He strikes me as the sort of dude who'd be a gas to have drinks with and shoot the breeze. But, things would get crazy over time. Cruise is hard to define as an actor. He seems to just do Cruise most of the time, then turns around and does something completely different that makes you go "huh. maybe this dude is more capable than he lets on". He's done a lot of crappy movies, but enough gems and good performances to get begrudging respect from me, anyway.

It's why ESPN pays $2B a year for Monday Night Football, NBC and Fox pay $1B a year for the NFL, and CBS paid $300M for 8 Thursday night games, plus $1B for the AFC games. Live TV tends to have viewers watching live, so advertisers can make sure that there is a call to action in their advertising.

Why can't we take them at their word ? nobody is disputing Christianity has been violent but it's not happening routinely today as violence is by Muslims in the Mideast, Way to miss the point, Prof. Thank God I didn't go to Columbia and generally missed much of the liberal indoctrination If I want to read what a Phiilosopher says about Christianity there are plenty of people who'd make far better reading-and yes, I read her little article

And what's with that stupid grin and the posing of Obama in the prayer posture. in the Columbia story Most Christians-except kids when they say "This is the church. This is the steeple" don't use their hands like that. That is the "Namaste" gesture "The God in me recognizes the God in you" often used by Hindus . It's a nice gesture of respect when it's used by people of that culture or practicing Hindus. It look foolish when a man who clearly isn't a Hindu and isn't a practicing Christian uses it to talk about how the violence of Christianity of hundreds of years ago is parallel to violence of today

555 I missed the last thread when Ace invited people to rewrite Williams' story to be the sort of undebunkable reverse-brag that actual cool people employ.

Well, interestingly, I have someone in my family who did exactly that, for decades.

An elderly male relative of mine -- let's just call him my great uncle -- was in WWII. He was injured during the war, and as a result still received a disability check every month from the Veterans' Administration.

Whenever anyone would ask him about what his injury was and how he received it, he always would reply, "I don't want to talk about it. Too painful. War is hell." Or something to that effect.

His stoic denials, his steely suppression of his PTSD, always impressed us little 'uns.

"Wow, it was so intense," we thought, "he doesn't even wan to remember the horror, the pain."

It was only decades later that I finally found out the truth from one of his ex-wives: The "injury" he had gotten during WWII was (are you ready for this?) an ulcer.

Yes, a stomach ulcer brought on by fear and stress.

He never saw battle. Never took a bullet. He was evacuated and sent home because of an ulcer.

Which promptly healed once he got back stateside.

But because he got it while deployed, it somehow counted as a "war wound."

My great-uncle could have taught Brian Williams a thing or two about how to impress people with vagueness and denials.

Gotta disagree with you there. I'd say it was 80% hilarious, with only a few weak spots. In my opinion it's one of the funniest comedies I've seen in the last decades (I'm pretty harsh and judgmental on comedies, too).

I thought the whole "drug addiction" Jack Black subplot was the weakest part -- "getting high" (or drunk) and being desperate for drugs are such cliche comedy gimmicks that they stopped being funny a long time ago.

But aside from that, it came close to being a classic.

It's the sort of movie that doesn't have to be special. It doesn't need to make much sense, have much character development or tell a story in the traditional sense. It's just a bunch of shit that happens tied together pretty loosely. It just has to be funny, which it is. Is it a bunch of scenes linked together in a totally implausible mannr? Yes. Is it technically a great film? No. But it's funny as hell. That's what counts.

Honestly though all the "actors" in the movie are cliches. That's kind of the point. Yeah sure comedian with a drug addiction has been done to death, literally. But you've got the wide eyed star struck actor in his first role that does everything while the others are jaded. The unserious action star that wants to be taken seriously. The serious actor that takes himself far too seriously. And he rapper that wants to be a movie star.

578 566 Jim

I always say that it was 9/11 that "made the scales drop from my eyes" and mugged me from a liberal to a conservative.

But actually, in retrospect now, I look back and realize I was already starting to change even in the years leading up to 9/11.

The three big incidents that really started to put me off left-wing-ism prior to 9/11 were:

1. Progressives + women defending Bill Clinton during the Gennifer Flowers and Monica Lewinsky scandals. I thought, "WTF??? He's obviously the exact sort of sleazeball feminists are supposed to hate - -and yet they rush to his defense???"

2. Clinton bombing Serbia during the Yugoslav breakup. It didn't make any sense then, and it still doesn't make sense -- and yet the lefties all rushed to support his war actions, simply because he was a Dem.

3. The Seattle WTO riots in 1999. That actually was the real deal breaker. I couldn't really admit it to myself internally yet, but those riots soured me on leftism permanently.

It took 9/11 for me to acknowledge what had already been brewing inside for years.

And in fact it wasn't the attacks on 9/11 that flipped me from left to right -- it was the progressive response to the attack (blame Bush, blame Jews, "We had it coming," conspiracy theories, etc.) that was the straw that broke the camel's back.

Thank you, for your kind and thoughtful reply.

I won't argue that those are the internal touchstones you identify as catalytic to your post 9/11 awareness, and you've nailed some doozies in the process, indeed!

But, I'll wager you this. The family incongruities, which you've previously described.... those are the things that piqued your heart, that stirred a primal discontent with the status-quo. Not that they even directly spoke to any given political issue or alignment. Just that they drove a sense of internal dissonance that could not be ignored.

Those events you listed? They harmonized with that dissonance. That's when things began to take shape and come into focus.

Your instincts as regards your family led you, long, long before any external factors such as news, politics and events.

But, when those happened, they hit you like a hammer.

Be happy to tell you my end of it all, sometime along the way.

Yes, as a _casus belli_, it was the Chewbacca Defense version.

I was particularly struck by how Clinton, in the middle of his completely ridiculous assault upon the Serbs, set out determinedly to destroy what was imagined to be a key Serbian intelligence and communications node in downtown Belgrade, which turned out after having been blasted to actually be the Chinese embassy.

I was a young lib when I voted for Reagan for my first election I could vote in. Then got busy with life, Clinton sucked. Not sure if it was '93 with the WTT or the USS Cole that cinched it. Clinton always disgusted me.

I used to listen to sports radio all of the times. That's what I did. ESPN, A.M. Radio, bitching about the portrayal of athletes' personifications in video games.

I listened to Rush Limbaugh on the radio occasionally and watched his T.V. show. I knew that there was a "certain out-lash" against success, but he made it a bit clearer.

...Then 9/11 happened.

When the left talked about "deserving this", I decided to drop any notions that the left wasn't that of my Father's generation anymore.

While Democrats still voted for the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, they denied it, obfuscated, equivocated, apologized.

...their Base had gone radical.

It isn't tough to re-gather your religion in times like those. It is tough to apologize for outright liars.

I never had to deal with that type of conversion. Parents and many extended family were small business men and women, and I started out with a libertarian outlook.

But as the Left grew bolder with their Gramscian march, I realized that libertarianism was the stalking horse for socialism due to the "Libertarians" excusing the use of the state to "fundamentally transform" society.

I have become increasingly Burkean (with a chaser of James FitzJames Stephens).

I've never ridden a horse. I used to ride mountain bikes over every sort of terrain available in Northeast Ohio. Miles and miles and miles. (We have no mountains ...so there's that.)

We used to make the last eight-to-ten a sprint. A "contest" amongst kids. When we got off of those bikes, we could barely find air, let-alone move.

IO9 is part of the Gawker network. Gawker and their network are not only totally SJW, but they corrupted Moot over at 4chan, and he has since let the SJWs have total control over 4chan, including /b/.

I remember the old /b/, back before the "f****try" metathesized. Posted by: The Hat-tard at February 08, 2015 02:48 AM (0Ew3K)

--------------------
Yeah, I learned that IO9 is a part of the spazzes at Gawkera couple years back,but they used to keep the focus on nerdy stuff and not so much with the SJW. But it is really starting to rear it's ugly head now.
About a week and a half back they had a link to a story about how a group had paid to have posters on transit buses in San Francisco showing how muslims have a history with the Nazis and both aren't to friendly towards the Jews. So someone had covered the posters with pictures of Marvel comics new muslim female Captain Marvel. The comments were irredeemably stupid- "Muslim's hate jews, why I never!"

*HAH!*

Occasionally, I'll get-in on a Community Beat-Down. It is a fiesta, after all. That's easy, though.

What shredded-chi asked was greater than that. He asked me to pray for a goofy SOB who came here in a drunken stupor, just to poke at a response.

In my toughest times, I pray for my Political Enemies to "see the light".

That is really, really hard to do.

That is what I am asked to do.

In humility, we ask of Our Lord to find the words of pardon. Might our brethren in Humanity find their way to Him.

Praying for Barack Obama, Nanci Pelosi and Harry Reid is tough.

Praying for Islamic foes is even tougher.

I am asked to do so and I will answer.

That doesn't mean that I am "soft". It simply means that I'll pray until I am threatened. Where prayer ends, action begins.

...but until then?

Chemically speaking, it is just a matter of concentration.

Many of the horrible "ass smells" are due to pnictogens.

Concentrated, they are indeed indicative of rotting flesh, poop, urine, &c.

In dilute amounts, they are sensed by the human body as wonderful (and are present in perfumes, choloclate, &c.).

I've always hypothesized that those with a fetish for poop/pee have mis-wiring in the brain that senses increasing levels of pnicotgens not with a transition from pleasant to disgusting, but with increasing pleasure.

735 A Sunday morning prayer-

God, our healer, I prayer for those that are sick, and for those that look after them. I pray for all those full of dread and anxiety and for those who carry the word of courage and faith. God, our counselor, I pray for those who are sorrowful or for those who have been hereaved. I pray for the weary and for those weighted down by chronic illness, pain or frailty. I part for those exhausted by the demands of work or caring for others and for those who turn to you for new strength, I pray fir those who are lonely, those without jobs and brothers and sisters in Christ suffering under oppression and violence because of their faith, I pray for our leaders, that they may be given wisdom a deep love for our Country, I pray that Muslims who commit violence may give up their weapons and turn to a love of Christ.

Lord in the modest of suffering, I celebrate the promise of your peace, in the midst of doubt and despair-the promise of your presence and kingdom. In the midst of fear-everlasting joy. In the midst of sin and decay- the promise of salvation and renewal. In the midst of death. May we dwell in your promises and life them up before others with love and compassion the promise of life eternal.
