Overnight Open Thread (3-2-2015)

Maetenloch locked himself in his own car, and with him out of the picture I was called in to bring you all the finest medicine for your late night needs. Besides, Hillary will be President anyway in two years time, and the country has gone to pot enough as it is, so you might as well take up a new habit early.

So roll that towel under your door, aim that window fan just right, and come join me on the first and last time the cobs ever trust me to an ONT.


Or is it OOT?

Let's set the mood.

Good news: 41% of CPAC Straw Poll Attendees

How to Avoid Arrest in Nebraska

1- Put your weed in a container.

3- Don't get pulled over.

Stoner Food Dreams Go Mainstream

capncrunchdelights.jpg

“The idea for Cap’n Crunch Delights came from our passion to incorporate cereal into our breakfast platform, paired with thinking about nostalgic brands from childhood,” Taco Bell senior director of brand marketing Amanda Clark told ABC News. “From this, Cap’n Crunch came to mind and in doing research, we found that Cap’n Crunch was a very popular brand with our consumers. We feel that this will appeal to what we call ‘kid-ults,’ or the ‘kid-adults’ out there.”

Of course, some fast food companies have dropped the facade entirely, and have now openly embraced the hungriest of individuals:

This is the greatest country on earth.

No Seriously, This is Still the Greatest Country on Earth.

63 I've been kind of upset this evening because of this fire. It started just down the street from where I work, just before I left to go home. Police cars and fire trucks were screaming towards the scene as I was leaving.

https://tinyurl.com/pv6jgh4

The video at the top of the page was soon after the fire began, and shortly after I left. The Pennsylvania Turnpike is on the left edge of the screen, and my workplace is just outside the shot to the upper right. I could literally walk to the scene of the fire in about a minute. I didn't, because I didn't want to get in the way.

It got a lot worse.

https://tinyurl.com/o4ag3zb

The building looks like a total loss. This was a sheet metal company that had been in business for over 50 years. We did some printing for them, although they weren't a major customer. I don't know how many people worked there, but they are all out of a job tonight. It's very sad. Even though I didn't really know the employees, they were sort of like neighbors.

Thursday afternoon is when I see my surgeon. He checked out my x-rays from last night but never got back to me to tell me to come in earlier than Thursday, which I'm hoping is a good sign. We were supposed to discuss me starting weight-bearing this week, which I'm sure is on hold now. So close.....

122 Trip to heave and ho, up down, to and fro'
You have no word
Trip, trip to a dream dragon
Hide your wings in a ghost tower
Sails cackling at every plate we break
Cracked by scattered needles
The little minute gong
Coughs and clears his throat
Madam you see before you stand
Hey ho, never be still
The old original favorite grand
Grasshoppers green Herbarian band
And the tune they play is "In Us Confide"
So trip to heave and ho, up down, to and fro'
You have no word
Please leave us here
Close our eyes to the octopus ride!
Isn't it good to be lost in the wood
Isn't it bad so quiet there, in the wood
Meant even less to me than I thought
With a honey plough of yellow prickly seeds
Clover honey pots and mystic shining feed...
Well, the madcap laughed at the man on the border
Hey ho, huff the Talbot
"Cheat" he cried shouting kangaroo
It's true in their tree they cried
Please leave us here
Close our eyes to the octopus ride!
The madcap laughed at the man on the border
Hey ho, huff the Talbot
The winds they blew and the leaves did wag
They'll never put me in their bag
The seas will reach and always seep
So high you go, so low you creep
The wind it blows in tropical heat
The drones they throng on mossy seats
The squeaking door will always squeak
Two up, two down we'll never meet
So merrily trip forgo my side
Please leave us here
Close our eyes to the octopus ride!

129 You say it was this morning when you last saw your good friend
Lyin' on the pavement with a misery on his brain
Stoned on some new potion he found upon the wall
Of some unholy bathroom in some ungodly hall
He only had a dollar to live on 'til next Monday
But he spent it on some comfort for his mind
Did you say you think he's blind?

Someone should call his parents, a sister or a brother
And they'll come to take him back home on a bus
But he'll always be a problem to his poor and puzzled mother
Yeah he'll always be another one of us
He said he wanted Heaven but prayin' was too slow
So he bought a one way ticket on an airline made of snow
Did you say you saw your good friend flyin' low?
Flyin' low
Dyin' slow

134 I know you guys are all fans of the Ace podcasts, as well as BCochran and AlexTheChicks's podcasts. Oh, and probably EmpireOfJeff's podcasts, too. I thought I'd share a couple of other podcasts I've really been enjoying...

How Did This Get Made?, located at...

http://www.earwolf.com/show/how-did-this-get-made/

Paul Scheer and Jason Mantzoukas, who you might know as Andre and Rafi (respectively) from The League, talk about bad movies along with Scheer's wife June Diane Raphael (who plays Jessie's lesbian gynecologist on New Girl). It's always entertaining, even when I haven't bothered to watch the movie. Incidentally, from this podcast, I learned that Scheer and Mantzoukas are pretty much just playing themselves in The League.

The Jim and Mickey Show, located at...

https://soundcloud.com/JimAndMickeyShow

It's Jim Geraghty and Mickey White (who you might know as @BiasedGirl on Twitter). A couple of conservatives talking politics and entertainment from a conservative viewpoint, and they're pretty funny, too.

149 They have a new ad out in CO. It says that you can't drive stoned, lock it up to keep it away from kids, you can't smoke in public spaces, and you can't take it outside CO's borders. Then it tells you to stay and get high. Homeless population is growing because of legal weed and a lot of people are coming here to work in the pot industry. Problem with that is if you have a felony conviction, you can't work in the pot industry. Most of those coming here to work in the pot industry have felony convictions. Ergo, more people are coming here, getting EBT's and spending their money on pot. Between all the stoners, CO being a de facto sanctuary state, and all the moonbats moving here from CA, we are screwed.

193 Talking about being locked in a car... did you all hear the story of a Chicago doggy daycare's van being stolen with seven doggies inside? It was really upsetting because it was a freezing cold night. Anyway, the van with all seven dogs was found. The dogs were shivering and hungry but they all survived. It was sweet seeing the owners' reactions. Just thought I'd share in case you hadn't heard the happy end. I was almost afraid to look up the follow-up in case it ended badly. Prayers answered.

246 Saul is a good lawyer show.

If you ever want to see a bunch of "Sauls" assembled in one place, at one time, just drop in to a Texas Justice of the Peace Court. That's where all the Texas Department of Public Safety (TXDPS, aka Texas Highway Patrol) cases are heard, as well as those of the same precinct's own patrol officer's citations.

Most all of the lawyers who handle the Class "C" Misdemeanor traffic cases, are of the back-of-the-matchbook, yellow-page, bus-stop-bench-ad class of The Bar. You won't often find one of their ilk defending a 2nd Degree Felony down in State District Court, at several hundred dollars per billable hour.

Funny thing is, they all have that similar whiff of desperation, that sense of shady chicanery in their speech, posture, actions and demeanor.

Damn near every one of them could be an extra in the "Saul" courthouse scenes.

An easy way to win points with the younger crowd would be for the GOP Congress to pass regulations regarding interstate transport between states that have legalized marijuana.

269 It is a rum that is bottled by the Newfoundland
Liquor Corporation. I think they ship it in by freighter from Barbados
or someplace and bottle it in Canada. I am sure they use barrels but I
always fantasized it was a tanker.

Kinda meh, but has a nice title.

Historically, screech was made by washing "empty" rum barrels with water to leach out the remaining fraction of booze that had soaked into the wood. Untaxed liquor, because the empty liquor barrels were, well, empty, after all.

I got treated better by the military than by the civilians. Props to: the on-base dispatcher who kept me from going into shock and trying to unlock the door, the Security Forces guys who immediately got ahold of Pooky and secured the house and the street, the on-base fire department who were seconds away from breaking down our door when Pooky pulled up, and the EMTs who not only took excellent care of me but made sure my daughter was okay.
This all happened within five minutes of me calling 911, so when I got to the ER and had to wait more than an hour before they gave me painkillers, I was..... not impressed.

289 So, did a good deed today. Saw a young woman by the side of the road looking under the hood of her car like she was hoping to see a "press here to fix" button. Seemed she had some type of coolant system failure. Called for a tow for her, took her number and left. Tow called, said two and a half hours at least. I called her back, and she's starting to panic. 2 1/2 hours beside the beltway, it's getting dark and below freezing out? Went home, got Gingy so she could follow, went back and limped her car about 5 miles to the mechanic. Start up, get up to speed, then shift to neutral, shut off and coast. For some stupid reason her car has an interlock so you can't start in neutral, only park, so I had to come to a complete stop each time. I didn't want to just tell her what to do, she didn't seem to know anything about cars and I could see her shifting to neutral, turning the key all the way off and locking the steering wheel and crashing. After we dropped the car we drove her another couple of miles home. We found out that she's a nursing student from Burkino Faso and she came here after having a couple little girls, she was afraid that they'd be subjected to genital mutilation. So, good deed done and it seems like it was someone who really deserved help.

325 Well, it was an office day here today. Got my Bentley manual for the TR6 all sorted out. Reprinted some damaged and missing pages for it from a .pdf copy found on the Web. I now have a functionally complete copy in a binder, missing only a couple of the "i to ix" introductory pages, which really don't contain useful data, anyway.

Then I tackled another manual. I have a Singer industrial sewing machine I bought a few months ago, and it developed a timing problem. Needle hits the housing of the bobbin carrier instead of the hole it is supposed to. Breaks needles, it does. Found a timing and service manual on ScribD, but they wanted some outlandish sum to "join" and download the .pdf. So I took a screencap of each page in "view" mode. Actually it was 2-3 screencaps per page. Today, I opened each image in Irfanview (had to run in XP mode for this) and clipped out the relevant material, blew it up to full screen in another instance of Irfanview, and printed all those. Close to 60 prints. Cut and taped them all together to make the actual 26 pages of the manual. Got it all, no pages missing. So now I can set the timing on the machine.

Cheap, I am.

We found out that she's a nursing student from Burkino Faso and she came here after having a couple little girls, she was afraid that they'd be subjected to genital mutilation. So, good deed done and it seems like it was someone who really deserved help.

There are good people in this world, and bad people. Judging from this tale, you are one of the good people.

But there are so many bad people. It's really hard to fathom. 95% of the restrictions and rules and hassles in life are caused by these bad people, and our need to protect ourselves from them.

Could you even imagine intentionally robbing or stealing from or injuring some random innocent person? Of course not. Neither could I. But out there, in the shadows (and the sunlight too) are predators, human predators, looking to strike.

I have so solution for all this. Just a sad observation.

I have Foxit pdf creator. Same deal, and I use it a lot for work, sending files to the client.What I had were about 60 png images, which I wanted to print to paper. But these were screen caps (Alt+PrtScr) of the browser window showing a partial page. So I opened each image in Irfanview, selected only the portion of the image that was "data", and cut it out to clipboard; then pasted that clip into a new instance of Irfanview, and enlarged it until there was no black border. So I would get about 1/3 to 1/2 a page of text on an 8.5 by 11" page in "landscape orientation. Printed all those partial pages, and taped them together to make a complete booklet. And the format is larger, and the text and illustrations are a little larger than they would have been had I been able to print entire pages from a .pdf. And larger is good.I probably could have made the images into .pdfs, and combined and edited them, and printed the resulting .pdfs, but what I did worked. It's perfectly legible, and the drawings are clear. It will enable me to do the work I want to do, and that was the whole purpose of the exercise.

I have a sinus thing going on that wakes me up about every two or three hours, not serious enough to require surgery, and a partially deviated septum, but right now nothing I can do about it. I can do melatonin for about two or three weeks and then it quits working. Then I have to wait for about a week before it kicks in again, works for about three weeks, and I have to lay off for a week. I was on an oral steroid for about a week and it worked wonders. I don't think they are going to keep me on that for any length of time.

Are you talking about "in here" with the Horde, or "in here" with Tucker?

If you're developing a tolerance for melatonin as a sleep-aid, you should change it up to let it retain effectiveness. I understand that a decoction of the herb Humulus lupulus has long been used to assist sleep (as well as ingestion of other members of the Cannabaceae family in various forms).

The problem with cannabis is not that it does anything particularly bad to you -- it's that it doesn't clear particularly rapidly, so you're really limited to Friday through Saturday night, with no driving until Monday morning.


Unfortunately, most people use a sleep aid because they need to hop up and do something the next morning.....and it's not particularly good in that application (in my experience).

Slow night on the ONT.



Started pricing crossbows, as I thought it might be a good way to
break into hunting with longer seasons than firearms and less
specialized training than a compound bow. Most of the models that good
good reviews are in the same price range as the (quality) budget rifles I
was pricing, and some are brushing up against the price range of a low
end Weatherby V.

My turn to play.

C.C.:

Crossbows are neat, and the better ones are pricey, as you've noticed ... and the technology is changing.

Horton has been selling a reverse-limb crossbow for a while, and others are moving that way. The overall package is smaller, and the draw-length (the power-stroke length) is usually longer than the usual designs, resulting in more velocity. If you're going to spend some serious cash ($500+), you might want to wait.

Additionally, the compound designs give much more velocity ... around twice the velocity of non-compound designs. This means that, even if you're pointing the bow or crossbow roughly horizontally, the bolt will go much farther ... if you have a bit of elevation, 300-500 yards is possible ... and will go through things that you might expect to stop them.

Paying to use an archery range is a good choice, if you're going to use a 25 lb. draw or greater bow or crossbow, and it's not a bad idea in general.

There is a lot to be said for bows instead of crossbows. You will need to train to continuously draw anything above ~45 lb. I include rowing when I lift, so I can draw my 69 lb. recurve. I also have a 25 lb. recurve, as it's extremely useful for working on form, and it's very easy to shoot.

432 I actually have access to a compound bow already, but its set up for left-handed draw because that's the way my late f-i-l shot, even though he was right handed. Having last nocked an arrow, oh, 25 years ago or so, and having no clue on technique then, I'm a little skeptical that I'd be ready in an hour to foreswear the crossbow.

I consider myself team longbow in theory, fwiw, I just don't have time for it. And since if I'm hunting, I'm intending to kill, I'm going to go, for now, with the easier to learn crossbow.

Posted by: Conservative Crank at March 03, 2015 02:46 AM (b2cFu)

433 Arbalest, from the base of my driveway I have at least 250-300 yards before I hit the fenceline of the next property, so I'm not too worried about overshooting targets.

Ohio has a 40 lb. draw minimum for hunting iirc, and I also saw a 200 lb. maximum quoted somewhere.

Are you certain that you want to hunt coyotes? They do cause problems, BUT they also prey upon pests, like skunks, opossums, ... sometimes, convincing them to keep away from your house, yard, barn, workshop and animals works well, as they handle other problems.


I'm not exactly directing you away from crossbows, just pointing out other options and general facts.

Have you looked at the various drawing methods and devices for crossbows? As a practical matter, you will have to use a device, as drawing the more powerful ones by hand is usually painful and somewhat dangerous. The battery-powered ones are neat, but a bit costly.

I should note that when a guy whose long-time handle is "arbalest" starts talking to you about crossbows, one can reasonably wonder if his knowledge of the subject might go as far back as the 12th century.....

The issue that I was pressing is that crossbows are complex, finicky beasts that may have loading issues (generally having short bow-arms but high tension levels). Farting around with a basic recurve bow lets you know how the pieces work. Working with a modern compound shows you what can be done for comfort, accuracy, and power with the same general model as the recurve, and working with a crossbow shows the complexity and limitations of that model. I should also note that I'd expect all three hours would be a "guided tour" with someone knowledgeable -- not just plucking strings and trying to hit C#.


Is there any chance your f-i-l's bow can be retooled for right-hand draw? I wouldn't think so, but your use of "set up for" makes me wonder.

If you like bigger, more triangular picks, there's also a version for that. You can easily get 5 picks out of a standard credit card, even if you're selecting parts of the card with logos, holograms, or pictures. Just remember that the strips are not "safe" unless also demagnetized. You'll also need some sort of sander/grinder/buffer to smooth the edges.

And with some of the gift cards and bullshit-mailer-pseudocards you get these days, you get some ultra-fine picks that you just can't get in stores.

534 Electricity rates hit a new record high. For the Morons I will explain why this is happening since you will not hear this from the MFM. This is a direct outgrowth of Obama's war on coal. All those coal plants he shutdown created very low backup in what is called peaking power. So when demand gets high on cold days or hot days and the base units are not enough, there is a shortage of coal plants to rise to the demand. This means they have to go to expensive IC Turbine power earlier than they used to.

"But in an opinion article in Monday's Washington Post, GOP Sens. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, John Barrasso of Wyoming and Orrin Hatch of Utah offered scant detail, saying nothing about how much assistance they would provide, its duration or how they would pay for it."

Southern CA is about the only place in the US where solar is viable AND competitive. But only because due to all their regulations driving up the price of other electricity, their elimination of Nukes, and their subsidies of solar.

"For in thee, O Lord, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord, my God"

Psalm 38:15

"One Scriptural mark of those who are born of God is hope.. Thus St Peter speaking to all the children of God, who were then scattered abroad, said, "Blessed be the God, the father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy, hath begotten us again onto a lively hope."
(1Peter 1:3) Note that this hope is a LIVELY or LIVING one; because there is also a DEAD hope, as well as a dead faith; a hope which is not from God, but from the enemy of God and man; as evidently appears by its fruits; for it is the offspring of pride, so it is the parent of every evil word and work; whereas, every man that hath is him the living hope is "holy as he that calleth him is holy": every man that can truly say to his brothers in Christ, "Beloved, now are we the sons (and daughters) of God, and we shall see him as he is." purifieth himself even as he is pure."

621 Negative attitude is powerful juju. Let it burn. Constitution is meaningless. We have no party. Beware. Regressives thrive on negative attitude; it's their bread and butter.

I appreciate the sardonic expressions here because I tend to be optimistic (despite my life's innumerable lessons about that), so the cynicism and despair keep me grounded. Thanks, curmudgeons.

Nevertheless, I don't believe the country is finished. I don't believe the Republicans are irredeemable. I don't even think the main problem, the incredibly horrible electorate, is a lost cause... despite several hardcase Regressive relatives.

In fact, what I have seen is a true revival of Constitutionalism and republican reason. I meet the most ordinary citizens who are fired up. Breitbart is still here. We are not without fighters for the right. Some of them have even recently been elected. It's beginning. Too little too late? We can only continue to try and find out.

Reform starts small and slow and looks like its facing mountains that could never be moved after all those decades of Regressivism.

Shouldn't deter us.

My problem is, I have such faith in the power of the Ideals of liberty and self-government! Properly presented the attraction is almost universal. And I recall that a handful of apostles and evangelists, rejected and persecuted and crucified, went on to ultimately take over the Roman Empire, and their inheritors continue to reshape the world; that America itself was an extension of that Christian revolution.

So, I'm not giving up. Yet. Not entirely. Hell, I only regained my optimism in the last decade, thanks to the Allen Wests and Sarah Palins and Mark Levins. Too soon to despair again.

Of course, it's easier to think like this living where we mostly elect actual conservative Republicans. :/

FWLIW, here's how I look at that

The Right is divvied into its own Identity Groups, much like the Left is, only it isn't racial or sex/gender, but by ideology and voting interest. So we have our Liberal/Conservative/Moderate 'wings' but also fiscon, socons, religious, etc.

There are currently entire blocs defecting from the GOP brand, typically falling away by not donating first, then re-registering, then not voting.

What we're seeing is the ones who still show up, the LIVs and schemers
