Overnight Open Thread (3-17-2015)

Quote of the Day

"Last week the Fairfax press interviewed a couple of people associated with Bilardi's Hume Islamic Youth Centre hangout, who couldn't see any connection between the kid's faith and his decision to join Islamic State.

"I've actually never seen him utter a word at the table when I was serving the food, cleaning up the table, nothing. He was the last person I would expect to actually go there," said former youth centre worker Furkan Derya.

I furkan derya to find a better name than Furkan Derya. A current youth centre staffer, Abu Zaid, claimed that western media was responsible for Islamic State recruits."

Starbucks Employees Now Encouraged to Berate You Over Racial Issues

I think Ace has already pretty well covered what a clucter*ck this new campaign has already been after a single day.

In fact this policy is so incandescently stupid and ill thought-out that all prudent investors should start shorting Starbucks stock until CEO Howard Schultz and the team that approved this business death-wish are gone.

Death of TV Watch

For the fifth straight month, television ratings have declined by double digits over what they were a year ago.

What had started as a gradual slide as Netflix cut into traditional TV viewing habits has become a tsunami as Hulu, Amazon, and other streaming video services compete in a growing market of younger "cord cutters."

Stuff White People Hate: Books Written by White Men

Or white cisgendered women whatever those are.

The internet has been abuzz recently with debates over reading lists and reading habits. Writer K. Tempest Bradford caused a bit of a stir when she challenged readers to stop reading straight white cisgendered male authors for a year. Sunili Govinnage generated her share of outrage when she reported on her year spent deliberately not reading white authors. And in late 2014, the phenomenally successful #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign took Tumblr and Twitter by storm, sparking a conversation about which books get published and read, and which don't, and what these choices are doing to children's literature.

Many of the responses generated by these articles and initiatives have been supportive - even from those white male authors 'targeted' for exclusion. Neil Gaiman, whose novel American Gods appears crossed out in red at the top of Bradford's piece, told "anyone hoping for outrage"that he thought Bradford's suggestion was "great"...

Star Blazers Got Me Through The Shittiest Year Of My Childhood

I was a happy child, but I didn't have such a happy childhood. Other kids didn't get my weird vibe, especially in elementary and middle school. And one year in particular, we moved to a new city and a new school, and things got ugly. Only one thing kept me from losing my shit: Star Blazers.

...I don't think a narrative had seized hold of my brain in the same way that Star Blazers did, before this point. It was the combination of high drama and aggressive serialization. The crew of the Yamato (or the Argo, in English) were constantly running from one terrible situation to the next, and their poor old ship was always pushed to its breaking point.

And the crew of the Yamato is definitely strong and brave. Captain Avatar is a gruff old sailor whose hat covers half his face, and he sits in the command chair uttering words of wisdom... even though he's dying. (And he actually dies, towards the end of the first season, after getting sicker and sicker.) His second in command, who has the awesome name of Derek Wildstar, is a brash rebel who blames Captain Avatar for the (presumed) death of his brother.

Years later, I lived in Japan and learned Japanese, and became pretty familiar with the concepts of "gambaru" (doing your best, no matter what) and "gaman suru" (remaining strong, in spite of all temptation and suffering). The characters on Star Blazers modeled those qualities for me, even with the sometimes awful dubbing - they seemed both stoic and passionate, and ready to beat the odds over and over.

Well Star Blazers wasn't as quite as meaningful to me but I did definitely enjoy it during its limited run in the 80s and remember racing home to catch it on TV. What made it stand out was the writing which included serious adult themes and the fact that the series had an overall story arc and that events and developments carried over from episode to episode - unique for the time.

So when characters were killed, their friends still grieved for them dozens of episodes later. And every episode ended with the count of how many days Earth had left to survive which added to the intensity of the drama. As an adult now I can see the many WWII parallels in the Star Blazer series which shouldn't be a surprise given that the original Japanese series writers grew up during the war and were obviously affected by it.

Drop Box

How one man has managed to save hundreds of abandoned babies in Korea.

"The Drop Box" chronicles Lee's life and work. Lee, the pastor of Jusarang Community Church in a working-class neighborhood of Seoul, has been taking in unwanted infants since 2009. Lee built his "baby box" after getting a call early one chilly autumn morning. "In front of the door," said the voice on the other line. When he and his wife went to their front door, they found a baby, cold to the touch, in a cardboard box. Lee worried about what would have happened had they not found her until later.

So he got out his tools and built a heated box on the side of his church, lining it with blankets, rigging it with a bell, and affixing to it a sign that reads, "This is a facility for the protection of life. If you can't take care of your disabled babies, don't throw them away or leave them on the street. Bring them here."

...As it turns out, the baby box is the last hope for many. In the past several years, South Korea has seen a rise in infant abandonment, the result of a culture that shames physical deformity and stigmatizes single motherhood, as well as an unintended consequence of a law passed in 2012 requiring mothers to register births and restricting international adoptions.

In the past several years, South Korea has seen a rise in infant abandonment, the result of a culture that shames physical deformity and stigmatizes single motherhood.

Since 2009, Lee's baby box has saved 600 children, some of them deposited there only hours after birth. Lee and his staff generally have up to 20 children in their care, and he and his wife have adopted ten (the maximum number of children South Koreans can adopt).

Up here in the now unfrozen tundra of Minneapolis, the Black Irish youths that are not Irish are running amok in Downtown Minneapolis for St Patrick's Day.

The police are trying to put the youths on buses to get them out of the downtown. Personally I think they should be using Paddy Wagons in honor of the day, and locking the poor benighted youths up over night.

Oh the original series had budget issues which forced them to truncate the series by over ten episodes. Thus the supposedly dead brother stayed very dead and never made an appearance though he was supposed to.

Here is the live action movie that came out a few years ago. Long on melodrama as they tell the whole first season story arc in one go. And it has pretty good special effects. Wave Motion Cannon. Black Tiger squadron. Dogfights in space.

Netanyahu Ahead in Close Election by Divided Israel
NewYorkTimes.com - 12 mins ago

After a bruising campaign focused on his failings, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel seemed to emerge from Tuesdays elections in the best position to form a new government, though he offended many voters and alienated allies in the process.

While the results were still incomplete, exit polls and partial returns suggested that Mr. Netanyahus Likud Party was likely to claim 27 or 28 of the 120 seats in Parliament, and his chief rival, the center left Zionist Union alliance, to take 26 or 27.

I was almost swayed by the anti-gluten wackos. Then I came to my senses.

I performed a little experiment: I went without gluten for a week. No change at all in how I felt. (I didn't feel bad in the first place; just wanted to see if I had more energy or better digestion.)

Conclusion: I have 0 gluten allergies.

Maybe some do. I doubt it. If you eat a loaf of bread every 2 or 3 days, yeah you're probably gonna feel like crap. Blame it on gluten?? That's just dumb.

Can I ask a favor of you praying Horde members?

My mother Virginia broke her hip about a week ago. She had been sitting reading and unbeknownst to her her leg had fallen asleep, so when she stood up too quickly she fell over -- hard. She managed to drag herself to the phone and get help.

She had to get hip replacement surgery, so now she's in rehab undergoing grueling therapy. She's a real Apache in the face of pain and tries to underplay it, but I know she's under a lot of stress.

She's a tough, classy, funny dame. Think Lauren Bacall, but with even more killer bone structure. She's my mother and my best friend.

A word in the ear of the big guy upstairs asking for her quick recovery would be great. Thanks so much!

No story here. Nope. Not at all. http://pllqt.it/mI4De9

During Barack Obama's recent State of the Union speech, he told America he had no more campaigns to run. But it seems that statement flies in the face of reports that an organization known as “One Voice” has brought in what has been called a "five-man Obama team" to defeat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Included in that five-man team is Jeremy Bird, the national field director for Obama's 2012 campaign, Dr. Aaron Lerner, Director of the Independent Media Review and Analysis, said Monday, citing a report at Haaretz.

That group, Dr. Lerner added, will run the anti-Netanyahu effort out of offices taking up the ground floor of a Tel Aviv office building. The campaign, known as V-2015, is careful not to support a specific party, but is working to ensure Netanyahu does not win Israel's March election. Because the effort is not supporting any specific candidate or party, Dr. Lerner said, foreign funds -- meaning monies coming from outside Israel -- raised by the campaign are not subject to that country's campaign finance laws.

Probably they are looking at their expansion strategy and see a lot of high density locations that are mostly non-white where their little shops don't do very well.

I lived in CA, and white area have a starbucks on every other block, but non-whites area just have burrito shops. It must drive them crazy that all that burrito money is out of reach. Maybe if they added sour creme as a topping?

133 "I think starbucks is reacting to a growing internet idea that it has become too identified as a drink for suburban - ugg wearing - girls."

McDonalds have done quite well since they decided to prominently rebrand themselves from the preferred fast food outlet of suburban whites to the preferred fast food of urban blacks.

Oh, no, wait. They have actually suffered a huge sales blow as people who aren't urban blacks have hastily taken their business elsewhere and have not come back.

142 Okay. Interview. Promised an update. Here we go. :-)

I admit, I expected a job offer at the end of the interview. I did not get one. But, they *still* seem really interested in me, and the two attorneys I spoke with seemed genuinely interested in my skills.

Good signs: They gave me the whole rigamorole of how their office works, a bit of the politics (office not national), and told me about their benefits. As we all know, they won't bother with that stuff unless you're a likely candidate.

Bad/semi-bad signs (but could also be seen in some light somehow as 'good'): they actually gave me pointers *during* the interview on how I could be doing better. Namely, they actually said to me, try to answer questions more concisely. I admit I tend to tell my life story on the drop of a hat. And they said one of the keys to success on the job is to be succinct.

Finally, I got news that the job is casual dress even though they're a law firm, which is NOT easy to find, and that they still believe in providing health insurance for their employees. Just good people there IMHO.

So, I should hear whether I'm hired by the end of the week, and right now I'm assuming I'll start Monday. Gonna try and stay positive, and of course will pass on what the final decision is as soon as I find out. Thanks for all the support to everyone here in the Horde. :-) :-) :-)

Not to be causing undue alarm, but have you considered that something may have gone wrong during the procedure?

Some discomfort is normal, but the only person I've ever seen have really heavy persistent pain after a modern hip job was one in whom the device was improperly installed by the surgeon.

164 Thank God Popeye's chicken is so incredibly tasty. There's been times I would almost have braved a small riot for a spicy breast and some rb&r from there.
Posted by: qdpsteve at March 17, 2015 11:31 PM (elbY7)

About once every 6 months I get a spicy leg and thigh (and I put more hot sauce on them when I get home), red beans and rice and a biscuit from Popeyes. That's my fried chicken fix and (besides a very occasional 5 Guys burger) the only fast food I ever eat these days. I've never liked KFC chicken that much.

One of our clients once was actually a failed business owner who still owed 15 employees their final paycheck. Of course he listed them all as unsecured debtors so I doubt they ever saw fair compensation for their work. Did not enjoy typing that petition.

Bibi can form a solid coaltion of rightwing parties if he wants. His previous governments simply indicate that he prefers to bring in 1 or 2 left wing parties even when he doesn't have to. He's promised no unity government so we'll see. Yes I'm quite happy Obama will become unhappy when he is actually made aware of said election. Of course he'll find this out when he thumbs through the New York Times tomorrow morning/noon given that he pretty much learns about everything after the fact.

He could have done that. And I could have utterly ignored those ads. Which would be fine. Stupid, but not a deal-breaker.

He told a lot of jokes about his roles, and even his acting ability. He'd won a "beauty contest" as a child in Saint Louis, and was called "The Candy Kid" for years.

Knowledgeable about technical aspects of painting, witty in conversation, kind and generous with his time. Absolutely ace dude.

It's a
common tactic of the left to preemptively challenge the reasonableness of their opponents. What do many
secularists call Haredi and Hasidic Jews? The "ULTRA-Orthodox." They
certainly don't call themselves ultra anything. But adding the "ultra' is a way to say up front that these people are crazy whereas adding the words "center," "moderate," or "middle class" to anything
leftist is a way to fool people.

The were a few odd things. Ice cream, for example, often uses gluten as a filler. WTF? I found an alternate brand that doesn't pull that shit. And I've had a celiac response to two different brands of "gluten free" bread.

But bacon? Gluten free. Steak? Gluten free. Baked potatoes? Gluten free. Once you know what it is that's making you sick, the diet ain't so bad.

Good one, Hat.

And to finish my point, the way the media defines everything it likes as center and everything it doesn't like as extreme, and has programmed people to accept that centrist = good...

We need to challenge them for the label of centrist and point out exactly how extreme their ideas really are.

I actually have celiac disease. The first day without gluten
made a profound difference to my health. Once I went on a gluten-free
diet (and it's an easy one to stick to, since you get sick immediately
if you stray) I lost 20 pounds with no effort.



The were a few odd things. Ice cream, for example, often uses
gluten as a filler. WTF? I found an alternate brand that doesn't pull
that shit. And I've had a celiac response to two different brands of
"gluten free" bread.



But bacon? Gluten free. Steak? Gluten free. Baked potatoes?
Gluten free. Once you know what it is that's making you sick, the diet
ain't so bad.

Posted by: Pixy and the Hamsters at March 18, 2015 12:06 AM (2yngH)


Congrats for finding it! Actual celiac disease is a no-nonsense horrorshow that is frequently misdiagnosed for long periods. I don't know how things are there, but around here you see 99 folks who look more like the guy in the video for every one person that actually has it.

OTOH, you don't need celiac disease to have problems from overdosing on carbs, food allergies, or various other metabolic or digestive issues.

254 Less than 1% of humans have celiac disease in reality. The point is, the rest of us should not be inconvenienced by them, and the whole thing is hype (though I admire the clever capitalism).

There's an interesting hypothesis out there, that some people have allergies to the proteins in the (relatively) new dwarf wheat that has taken over the world, because of much higher yields. No idea whether there's anything to it, but if semolina for pasta is still a different wheat, it might be testable.

271 Sears was actually the original Amazon.

It's just that instead of a hyperlinked web screen, Amazon did everything via their catalog. Then around 1890, somebody said hey, let's augment our income with some freestanding stores. Of course as we all know, by 1960 or so the stores were easily outperforming the catalog business, and I think it was around 1995 or so that Sears finally completely abandoned the catalog.

What's incredible to me is, Amazon now is actually talking about opening up some freestanding stores. Like they say, those who fail to learn from history...

"There's an interesting hypothesis out there, that some people have
allergies to the proteins in the (relatively) new dwarf wheat that has
taken over the world, because of much higher yields."



You can find (and buy) things like flour and pasta made with old
time heritage wheats, to experiment as to whether modern
yield-engineered wheat causes you GI tract difficulty.

354 The Paramount Cafe in Denver has an interesting take on corned beef and cabbage. They cut the corned beef into thin strips and fry it like bacon. I'm not sure how many slices I got, but it was a good two-inch stack of them.

They serve it up with a big slab of cabbage cooked in corned beef broth, seasoned potatoes, and stout-braised carrots.

It was really good, and I did not get migraines from the carrots like I do when I drink stout.

It will be cared for and hopefully nurtured. It beats the hell out of leaving a baby in a dumpster or a toilet to die. And a thousand times better than aborting it.

386 Re: the baby box. Most people in this country do not know their history. It was estimated that 50 million died during the Second World War. I've recently seen some figures that upped that to 60 million. Since Roe v Wade, there have been over 50 million abortions performed in the US. Abortion in the US has killed almost as many human beings as were killed in WWII. I read last year that some alphabet agency in the government has estimated that that number has cost the US some 45 trillion in GDP, from lost wages and lost consumer spending. Basically, not only is there a moral cost in devaluing human life, but there is a severe economic cost. And for all the race warriors out there, the majority of aborted babies are black.

403 A lot of people don't know: in the early 1980s, there was actually a song written and recorded, IN RESPONSE to Michael Jackson's classic hit "Billie Jean."

It was by Romeo Void and titled "A Girl in Trouble (Is a Temporary Thing)." And it was a moderate hit.

404 EPA wants to monitor how long you spend in the shower at hotels. It wants you to shorten your shower from eight minutes to seven minutes. They want to save water and energy. Give them time. They will want to monitor how many sheets of tissue you use to wipe your butt. To save energy and paper. The only good thing I've seen today was when someone said to set the EPA headquarters on fire and shoot the survivors as they run from the building. Kind of harsh, but effective. At least they won't crap in the hall ways anymore.

422 Tim Blair (ferken derya) is hilarious. As witty as Mark Steyn, but more conversational. Used to read hiscolumn at his old gig (another Aussie paper) regularly a few years back. He's devastating and hilarious on the idiotic "climate change" industry/abomination.

The comment thread on the Starbucks fiasco was the funniest thing I've read ina very long time. The Horde was teed up a fat, slow pitch and ripped the cover off it.

This isn't the first idiotic Starbucks/Shultz social engineering/airhead NPR moral narcissist preenfest. Last year, or year before (?), SBUX had this idiotic "jobs" thinggy. About as stupid and embarrassing as most things pushed by institutions or companies in the US today. Something about wanting to help create more jobs - uh, OK, uh, WTF?

I had recently sold my SBUX stock, but remember guffawing when I saw the stupid little sign near the cash register, and wanting to tell the barrista/race conversation technician "how about no longer supporting job-killing idiocy like scientifically baseless 'environmental' destruction of commerce, or other regulatory vandalism of the economy, or ruinous levels of taxation, and the political party that is responsible for about 90% of those ills?"

But of course I just shook my head and absorbed one more data point in the degradation of a once great country and civil society ....

Ace told him to chill out for the rest of the night, he didn't. Ace then informed him that he was going to be banned as soon as Pixy got to it. He kept on, and then Ace got Pixy to ban him. Not to be outdone, (B)lazer decided to go over to a friends and start up again. That is when Ace decided that not only would he be banned, but that the word (B)lazer would never be spoken at the HQ again.

511 #485: I think I understand. I'm not a fan of Justin Timberlake's music, but I've liked him as a person ever since I read an interview with him many years ago. This was a few years after he and Britney Spears had broken up, and the interviewer was trying really hard to get him to dish out some dirt on her. He refused.

He later came out criticizing her after she had her first baby and was acting crazier than ever. He said something about feeling that she's a bad mother.

That made me respect him more, because he wouldn't say anything bad about her until it was for the sake of her children. And then he felt like he had to say something.

Oh, and then he was doing that promo stuff with Mila Kunis for Friends With Strings or No Benefits Attached or whichever of those two movies it was (I own them both, so my money is where my mouth is either way)... Kunis was asked to a military ball by a member of our armed forces, and Timberlake talked her into accepting the invitation. I remember him saying something like, "You have to do it for your country!"

So, yeah. Timberlake's a cool guy in my book.

I have no use for them, but they weren't white trash. I grew up around the corner from the drummer, and the guitar player Zambora was from the next town over. I used to run into him a lot in the local guitar store a few years before he was in bon jovi. I then got a job at another music store and when he came in I would toss him a guitar and we would jam on a few tunes here and there. Years before that he actually played my 10th grade high school dance with a band he was in at the time. Still, I was never into that band. Too lame for me. I liked warrior metal, not top 40 shit.

At a time of suchperil, in a country where national security is not even slightly an abstraction off people's radars, how does so much stupid get so many votes? And I am familiar with the left/socialist legacy and roots of so many Israelis from the early decades. But it's 2015.

I'll take your answer tomorrow - and BTW enjoy your comments/contributions.

552 Is it true that the IDF votes are not tallied until Thursday? I distinctly remember the last election when it was tied 60 left/Arab and 60 right/religious and the IDF votes gave Bayit Yehudi an extra seat a day or two after the election. It was hilarious because the Arabs lost a seat and the Bayit Yehudi gained a representative who just so happened to be a settler who lived in Hebron. The Arabs were furious.

557 It's funny that K. Tempest Bradford specifically singled out Neil Gaiman's American Gods as a "book not to read" for social justice purposes, because the main character was black, as were several supporting characters, and they were all cool and likeable characters.

It sort of annoyed me a little that Gaiman didn't tell you Shadow was black until, like, page 436 or so. Interestingly enough, though, I'd been envisioning Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who does happen to be black, in that role the whole time, and I found out later that Gaiman had actually based the character on him. So, good work, there, Neil!

Some of the "rulez" we have today came from that incident.....when they should have been just common sense.

I knew all the other members, but I didn't know anchovy. He was from a few towns over, but from what I understand he was always a poser asswipe. Like I said, the drummer lived around the corner from me, and my bass player was a few houses down from him, so I always passed the drummer's house. One anchovy first started making money he bought himself some older classic white rolls Royce, like you would see "Arthur" being driven around in. I would see it parked outside the drummer's house occasionally. Fucking poser, who the hell would buy something like that. I would rather have a Ferrari or something.

PJMedia closed comments, then opened registration and deleted all prior comments -- then that registration method failed, and they made people re-register, but blocked them from using nics previously registered under the failed system. Then they "found" all the previously deleted comments, but lost registered commenters again, but (I think) allowed them to reclaim their original nics. And now, they've got historic cthulhu comments but nothing from me for a long while. Some people miraculously threaded that needle (e.g. cfbleachers), but I didn't.

Y'know, I'd be real careful 'bout who I was calling "smurfette", being that she's likely been through Basic training two more times than you have......

What? After all the opportunities to say "get a room", you're shocked they got one?

626 This is great. The name "Pakistan" is itself a mashup for all the cultures it encompasses. The 'Stan part is for the former Baluchistan who got voted onto crazy island because the didn't attend the meeting.

627 Back in the day, there was this thing about "laying siege" and "reducing" -- and neither get as much attention today as they should.



What would happen if the University of Tehran were to be annihilated at a time chosen when most of its faculty would be on its premises (perhaps graduation?)?



What would happen to Iran if its known power stations were JDAM'd? Pretty tough to research nukes by flashlight, eh?



What would happen if Iran's bridges and railway interchanges were....er....impaired?




What if their political centers were similarly targeted?




It seems to me that Iran could be reduced to a collection of primitive tribal areas quite rapidly.....and that this might be a worthwhile demonstration for other countries with similar empirical ambitions.

I don't get it. "Enjoy your prize of nothing" doesn't sound like "Very happy."

If that's the secret handshake, I'll never find you in the camps. That looks hard, and I'm generally clumsy and uncoordinated.

633 So, last weekend, we did the "Chainsaw Trail" at Sanborn -- http://tinyurl.com/muehyr7 -- our nickname for the "Unmaintained Service Road" on the left side of the inset circle. It's our favorite short hike in the park. We call it the Chainsaw Trail 'cause it really needs one -- I counted 26 step-overs, 3 duck-unders, and 3 wriggle-arounds one time. Stuff keeps dropping and getting cleared, so today's count may vary.

Morons have special abilities to find each other. When someone knows that the guys get shirts and Paul Anka slices like a fuckin' hammer, you're close.

636 I've dropped the Mr. from the nic and will just ID by my location for now. Two more days in this country that was abandoned by the French. Mostly I want those who support missionary work in Africa to know that it does make a difference. Probably 75% of the schools I've seen in the countryside are missionary schools teaching a bilingual curriculum to the little kids. English is now common, in addition to French and their tribal language. A powerful Christian faith will help in the battle that's coming. Boko Haram is present in the north and Islam has always had bloody borders.
