Parents Upset After Middle School Students Given '50 Shades of Grey' Bondage Puzzles

Parents in a Pennsylvania school district are turning 50 shades of red over word search puzzles given to middle school students based on an erotic novel and movie.
The students in Monessen were given puzzles based on "Fifty Shades of Grey" that contained terms including "spanking," "submissive," "leather cuffs" and "bondage." Other words on the list were more explicit.

Why? Were they all out of US presidents or famous writers word-finds?

Back When Folk Music Was a Thing

Brian Epstein signed The Silkie because he heard them playing in the Cavern Club when he dragged his Savile Row arse in for a gander at the Beatles. It's hard to say whether the Beatles or The Silkie did the cover version of Hide Your Love Away. Both versions were recorded at the same time by the same people, more or less. It's assumed that John Lennon always wanted to be someone other than himself on a given day, and that day he wanted to be Bob Dylan for a spell.

And yes The Rolling Stone's 'Satisfaction' is now 50 years old.

Which means it's as far away from us today as ragtime jazz hits of the 1910s were from 1966.

10 The Silkie were a good group, and I suppose they got a hit farmed out to them by Lennon and McCartney back in the day. The Beatles did "Hide Your Love Away" for their movie "Help", but SIlkie had already charted it. Whatever, it's a nice song.

See the movie "Rock and Rule" for the fate foretold for Mick Jagger and a lot of other Dinosaurs of Rock. Mok is Mick, believe it!

30 Satisfaction is 50 years old? Time flies. I never really "got" Satisfaction as a monster hit. It's a catchy tune, but they've done much better. I'm not surprised Richards didn't think much of it, when he wrote it. I prefer the live version from 69 and 71 when they changed it up a bit and made it funky. The follow up, Get off of My Cloud was a much better single than Satisfaction.

But by and large, most Jews vote leftist because they are upper middle class agnostics with above-average levels of post-graduate education who believe that religion is a great ill, that Biblical morality is intolerant and vicious, and that Judaism itself is passe.

Jews who care about actual Judaism don't vote leftist. And those who prioritize leftism don't vote Jewish.

138 I'm not Jewish so maybe I'm going out on a limb--and I don't want to offend anyone--but I think Jews have a fear of the "majority." That's why they tend to be for open borders and letting everyone in--including Muslims. They figure the more the "majority" is diluted--the better it is for them. And because Jews tend to be well-educated and affluent, the majority they fear are the great unwashed, uneducated, fundamentalist Christians who tend not watch Woody Allen films and don't read the NY Times.....

I can remember him taking shots at Pat Buchanan in one of his stand up specials. I'm not sure he was a total leftist as just cautious about what he said because he was building his career. Regardless after 9/11 he didn't hold much back.

I still loved the guy's stand up routines. He had a bit about liquid soap that still gets me into tears (If you're kid can't get bar soap together, maybe it's time to hold him back a grade...).

BLACK CANYON CITY, Ariz. (AP) -- Authorities say 40 pounds of methamphetamine have been found buried underneath a truckload of broccoli in central Arizona.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says an officer pulled over a commercial truck for a moving violation around 2:45 a.m. Saturday on Interstate 17 in Black Canyon City.

The officer searched the semi-trailer and found a duffel bag containing several packages of meth.

DPS says the driver, 39-year-old Ata Hamed Taha of Greensboro, North Carolina, was arrested.

Taha has been booked into Maricopa County Jail on several drug-related charges including possession of dangerous drugs and control of an illegal enterprise.

DPS narcotics detectives say the meth is believed to be valued at $440,000.

216 I was at a gathering today with some people I had done some theatre performances with. The subject of
the brother of someone came up. Apparently he is a graduate of Harvard Law School probably in his early forties-maybe slightly younger and he helped out on Obama's campaign. Someone there said, "He is interested in politics. You may hear of her brother some day." I'm thinking to myself "This is a Democrat and a progressive Jewish guy who voted for Obama and worked on his campaign." I wish her brother well but no-I really don't want to hear of him moving up in political circles. I iwisely kept my mouth shut.

259 SNL was capable of being funny up through the 90's. They usually had a couple of funny people, at least, at any given time to carry the show through the run of the mill filler until a good sketch came up. It started to go totally crap sometime around the turn of the decade. Then, Tina Fey happened and it became bad... stridently, aggressive, in your face bad.

262 I went to some theater performances at a private high school. I said to FenelonSpouse-"Didn't you think some of this stuff was really inappriiate for high school students?" FS agreed and interestingly enough even most of the people I went to have pizza and a glass of wine afterwards with -people who were in their late forties to mid fifties (and this is in liberal epicenter of NJ so I'm guessing they're mostly progressives) thought some of it was pretty bad.

I was just happy that in the midst of some very anti Christian stuff there was actually a play that suggested there was something greater than just what's here ,and both of the main characters had lamented that they weren't brought up with any religious grounding or training or that they had had tossed it all aside. One of the characters is supposed to be reading from a guidebook to some cathedral in Europe. They should have posted whatever he was reading in an actual book because he had to memorize it and he referred to something as "The Book of Matthews" which was supposed to be "The Gospel according to Matthew".

I have a volt ohm meter, I guess I should just test it. If we lose power for any length of time, I pull the meter and connect direct to the meter. That way no worry about back voltage, then I just use fuse panel to decide what I want to run.

286 Thor and I finally saw American Sniper this afternoon. Thor loved it. I liked it a lot, but not as much as I thought I would. It wasn't what I expected at all.

I've had the book since day one, and have been putting off reading it; hopefully it will have what I found lacking in the movie!

One thing that was really weird for me is that, except for Chris Kyle himself, I didn't like anyone in the entire doggone film.

*****************************************
*************MILD SPOILERS***************
*****************************************

I didn't find the actors who played his fellow SEALs believable at all. (Except for the whatever-the-Naval-equivalent-of-Drill-Seargents-are in the beginning) None of the military personnel were particularly believable to me. I actively disliked his wife and even his little boy was annoying. I did love his daddy.....he reminded me of mine, and all my uncles. We do not raise sheep in this family, loved that!

I also thought the Iraqi actors were great, and I found myself liking Mustafa. Not "liking"him as in rooting for him, but I thought the part where they showed the picture of him getting his Olympic medal was a brilliant bit of film-making; just in that quick second or two, you kind of got insight into his mindset or something. (The slowed down bullet bit where he exits the film was beyond stupid, though.)


I liked it far more than this novel of a post would suggest, and I will never make fun of Ace's reviews again!

If it's 220V in the US, it's likely 3-phase. That would mean that you'd have Hot+, Hot-, and Neutral. With that color scheme, I'd guess those would be Black, White, and Green, respectively.

Easy to check with an AC voltmeter that went up to 240V -- you should get 110V between either hot and neutral, and 220V between the hots.

Yes, yes *rolls eyes* -- fine, I got the wires right.

Hot+, Hot-, Neutral -- either hot to neutral = 110V (balance the load the best you can between both -- e.g. run the lights off the Hot+ and the plugs off the Hot-). Hot to hot = 220V.

US 240V 1ph is usually:
Green: Ground
White: Neutral
Black : Hot

3ph:
Green: Ground
Black : Phase A
Red: Phase B
Blue: Phase C

but, like B. Cons. wrote, if you're not certain, hire a professional.


I don't think I attached the ground wire, just the two hot lines? Would that have worked?

I recommend against trying this experiment, as there are likely too many things very close by that the 2 hot lines will consider ground.

346 Reading between the lines on that Rolling Stone SNL cast members rankings tells you all you need to know:

Fey rated high because of Palin

Akroyd's rating saying his Carter impersonation should have helped Jimmah.

Hartman's Clinton was just the playful Clinton.

Amy Poehler just played Hillary! just perfect.

Chevy Chase (ITO) destroyed Ford and would have done the same to Reagan.

Carvey was Ross Perot

Ferrell was Bush 2.

Franken was good on SNL, but top 20? Nope, but a Dem Senator makes him top 20.

I'm surprised that Lovitz made it that high since he has become an outspoken free market capitalist, but ranking Norm, Colin, and Victoria Jackson were all low rated because, um Conservativish.

Posted by: Nip Sip at February 15, 2015 11:40 PM (0FSuD)


I'm familiar with the standard red-black-white wire with a bare copper ground. For that wire both red and black are hot, white is neutral and bare is ground.

This is how it works:

Black to white = 110 volts
Red to white = 110 volts
red to black = 220 volts


There is a difference between neutral and ground. Neutral is traditionally white while ground is bare copper. Only in wiring for damp locations are ground wires insulated, and then they're green.

I'm not familiar with white-black-green wiring. Test it with a meter and please report your results.

382 Most residences in the US have single-phase 220 V. The two hot wires are both 110 V with respect to ground but are 180-degrees out of phase and thus 220 V with respect to each other.

A 220 V breaker is a double pole breaker that switches both hot wires.

Most industries and some residences have three-phase electricity--it all depends on the type of transformer.

Damn, I'm sorry to hear that. What do they ascribe that to?

I remember when I was a kid (in the 60s), knee replacement surgery was outright science-fiction. I first started hearing about real people -- not millionaires, politicians, and celebrities -- getting 'em in the late 90s. And since about 2005, it seemed that it was as common and uniformly beneficial as putting a cast on a broken arm.

I'm really sorry to hear it isn't working that way for you. I hope, at least, it's better than the knee was pre-op.

I'm thinking these medical stats are as bogus as govt stats.

I had a hip replacement in 2010. Big improvement as it turned out I had hip dysplasia for 50 yrs.

But, it caused another LONG bout of sciatica, due to everything being shifted around. Course my doc that did the hip said it had nothing to do w/ his surgery.

My hip replacement was a success. Solved some problems, caused others. It's a crap shoot. Just make sure you are informed and bring someone else along to hear the same crap that you do. It helps.

We have been beaten to death for the last forty years with the phrase, "But it's for the children!" More taxes, more government, more restrictions on our freedom. If, for once, something is actually done "For the children" then the reaction may be worthwhile. Those people who've been forcing that phrase down our throats for the last forty years should be forced to see those photos and videos. It may change their attitudes, or not, but they should be beaten severely about their head and shoulders with their own hypocrisy.

... and, in other news, I saw "Kingsman" today.

It's worth the money. Yes, "Gorebal Warming" is referenced in the movie, and no, the movie is not pro-Gorebal Warming. You have to pay attention to the dialogue and action to see this, but they do make Michael Mann and his Coastal 'leets look like fools. Even the Tennessee (Baptist?, JWs? 7-th Day-ers?) Church scene really appears, at the end, to be pro-Church and pro-religion.

There is an homage or two to "Kill Bill", and even one to "Fast & Furious", and subtle Jamed-Bond-movie motifs abound, but no JB dialogue, as it ain't that kind of movie. However, the various plot twists, while unexpected, are signalled by preceding events. Attention is needed to see this.

Neutral is not reqire d in some situations (heating elements, for example).
This would be typical in an older 3 wire 220v appliance, and yes neutral & ground are connected to the same buses in your panel.
Nowadays, you have a separate busses for neutral & ground, hence modern four-wire systems for appliances - black, red, white , green (or bare). Hot, hot, neutral, ground - in that order.

In bath cases, hot, hot, ground : 110 + 110 + ground = 220v.

Does that make sense?

When we upgraded our panel in 2004 (and dropped a kitchen subpanel), there were a number of strange things going on with regard to ground/neutral due to changes in code from the original electric in 1955.

We had to move our ground from house plumbing in front of house to ground rod near panel in back. IIRC, that was the basis for main panel ground, and neutral from the drop was tied to it. But the subpanel neutral was not directly tied to ground, but was tied back to mainpanel neutral. I had enough going on that I couldn't give it my full attention, but it did seem odd.

Posted by: cthulhu at February 16, 2015 12:59 AM (T1005)

479 The big problem in sorting out NFL running backs is this: There are basically two types of RBs in the game.

The Tony Dorsett, Eric Dickerson, Walter Payton kind of back. They'd melt through a line, seemingly untouched. (even though they were powerfully breaking tackles the whole way). Smooth, graceful, deceptively quick and fast. They gained major yardage just with a simple head-fake and stutter step. By time the defenseman reacted, he'd reacted too late to make the play.

Then, there's the John Riggins kind of back. Earl Campbell. Those guys. Bull. Dozers. Why finesse, when you can just steamroll the defense, and carry four or five of them along for the ride?

Sure, there's plenty of crossover and degrees of difference bridging the styles, but the difference in the styles is where most of the arguments begin.

Walter Peyton was the Best Walter Peyton, and Earl Campbell was the Best Earl Campbell.

And neither of them would have been quite as good, without offensive teams and plays designed to maximize their respective strengths along the way.

So, that's my gallon of gasoline for the ONT. Fire away!

Oh, and Les Josephson, of the Rosie Greer era LA Rams? Was my neighbor and sometimes babysitter when he was with the team. Yeah, I had major braggin' rights in the 3rd grade.

Sometime, on another slow ONT, I'll tell of the time our apartment complex got arsoned, and Josephson, Greer and several other LA Rams turned out to help cook for and feed the 100s of firemen and police on the scene, under my Dad's kitchen management. He'd started his Navy career as a Baker's Assistant on the USS Valley Forge in the Korean War, and knew how to turn out mass quantities. So, he did, when it was needed the most.

505 Ah, the ole knob and tube.
The thing to know in diagnosing problems with that old house-burner technology is that on a switched circuit (say a light fixture), they didn't break/complete the circuit with the hot side as we do now, but rather by breaking/completing the loop via the neutral.

Throws a lotta guys for a loop, so to say.

House burner is pretty much it. Worse when they were tied to federal pacific circuit breakers. The suckers never tripped. I saw an electrician in a hallway with a wire that was arcing and the breaker didn't trip. It looked like he was welding. The walls in the hallway looked like the sides of the enterprise in wrath of khan. Literally looked like there was blaster marks.

506 If it's 220V in the US, it's likely 3-phase. That
would mean that you'd have Hot+, Hot-, and Neutral. With that color
scheme, I'd guess those would be Black, White, and Green, respectively.

Easy
to check with an AC voltmeter that went up to 240V -- you should get
110V between either hot and neutral, and 220V between the hots.


Posted by: cthulhu at February 15, 2015 11:39 PM (T1005)


Jesus, no, Cooth. Three-phase power is 208 volts per phase, 208 volts between any pair of wires, and few if any homes are wired for three-phase power. Maybe if you had some honking big power tools in your workshop.

120/240 is single-phase AC. 120 either side of neutral, but both on the same phase. There is no such thing as "two-phase" power, incidentally. And "220" is the old counterpart to "110". The old standard, basically a century ago now, was 110 volts at the outlet; it gradually crept up, and is 120 at the outlet, now.

In college, I was in a dorm where the rooms alternated (Hot+/neut), (Hot-/neut), (Hot+/neut), (Hot-/neut)....so every wall had Hot+, Hot-, and neutral in the wall. To make matters more interesting, each junction box served rooms on both sides of the wall.

You can probably see where this is going. Fortunately, when they rewired my dorm room for 220V, they were very nice about repairing/replacing all of the electronics.

--------IIRC, American and Canadian are all 110 v AC, and European is 220 v AC. Doesn't make any difference to the machine. A diode bridge reduces it to +12, +6, 0, -6, -12 Volts DC. Pretty much every device you use are those voltages DC. The only device in your home that use AC are like an electric stove, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, and microwave all use AC because of the wattage behind it. And light bulbs.

526 Dave, I just watched it earlier today - I love that movie.
From the IMDB trivia section:

"Danny Rubin and Harold Ramis wanted to add another Ned Ryerson scene at the last minute, so Stephen Tobolowsky (*Ned) wrote the scene where he rattles off a number of insurance policies. Tobolowsky based his character on his own insurance agent. After the movie's release, the agent called Tobolowsky to thank him for portraying agents so accurately rather than making fun of them as most movies do."

The Pacific was ..... OK. Think the mission was impossible - somehow build a riveting narrative of the Pacific Theater in 10 episodes, using three different memoirs of three different guys with very different paths. Trying to stuff 1,000 metric tons in a 40-lb bag.

Band of Brothers was - reason the book was even written, really - an extremely rare,maybe even unique story of a small unit that stayed largely intact and was at most of the marquee battles of Europe for US forces. "From Normandy to the Eagle's Nest" was literally true, and impossibly interesting and unusual.

Have a Guadalcanal vet friend who was excited to see The Pacific .... and like me, not sure he even ended up watching every episode. (I do recall the scene in the first episode, Guadalcanal, firefight at the Matanikau River - ? - the ridiculous ending where the Marines, who would have been exhausted and shocked after their first actoin, are almost playfully shooting at a Japanese officer doing a solo banzai through knee-deep water .... with a 1911 pistol .... unless true (!), ridiculous).

The episode with Lekie (sp?) in Melbourne is bizarre, not in itself but as allocation of 10% of the series' time. That sort ofderailed the whole thing for most people I know.

It used to be a mess right here in the US until shortly after WWII. My mother can remember when major appliances used to come from the factory incomplete. The dealer was expected to do the final electrical assembly for use in the particular region it was being sold. If you moved a significant distance you had to call up the shop to get your stuff rewired. Alternately, you could sell it with the house and get new ones where you moved.

IIRC, San Diego County was one of the last big holdouts on adopting the 120V 60H standard, until the early 50s.

563 OK, guys -- let's say you're using kerosene to wash parts. You've washed a bunch, so there's a bit of gunk in the bottom of your pail.....and you've had a bit of evaporation, so there's only about 1/3 the amount of liquid left over. What do you do with it?




You can't leave it around in front, 'cause someone will have their dog drink out of it. You can't put it in the garage, 'cause it'll fill the garage with fumes. You can't just toss a match in, 'cause it'll melt the pail. If you try to put it down the drain to your local sanitation district, it may float. What's the moron-advocated fuck-the-EPA method to be rid of it?

Two alternatives:

1). Wipe off all fingerprints and leave it at a neighbor who you hate.

2). Payoff Chem grad student to take it off your hands and add it to their chem waste.

Seriously, going through the "proper channels" is just asking for regulatory pain.

I use a 5 gallon pail with kerosene to degrease a lot of the nasty Harley parts at the shop, because the parts washer itself is for clean stuff as a final wash before assembly. I usually will pour the liquid into another pail so I can clean the main pail when the sludge builds up. Usually the sludge goes on news paper, gets rolled up and tossed in the garbage. For smaller containers when I do small parts I just pour it into the dirt behind the shop.

Put it in a metal pail, light it up and say its a tiki torch.

573 Put it in a few smaller glass jars, line both sides of the driveway, lite it up and say you have to guide in some B-17's. The neighbors will think you're fucking nuts and never bother you again.

577 Re the comments about Boston and the snow earlier in the thread: I just got back from a week in Boston. The people themselves are totally cool and very matter-of-fact about the snow - digging out their cars, shoveling their sidewalks and more often than not finding some way to have fun with it. The 'panic' and whiny bullshit is coming from the news media. I know, shocking.

You want to see -people- in freakout mode? Come to North Carolina this time tomorrow.
