Overnight Open Thread (27 Mar 2015)

Is America in decline? Yup. Can we stop it? Not with the elected leadership we have now (both D and R). The electorate is gonna have to feel a lot more pain before it can influence the political process and the media that covers for it.

Anglo/American Nomenclature

British/American clothing confusion.

Robotech

Robotech movie heads to fast track at Sony. Fingers crossed this happens.

Check out this fan made film (took 4 years) about TIE fighters. I'm diggin' the anime feel to it. Already a lot better than Rebels on Disney XD.

The Most Dangerous Profession

The human cannonball.

Earworms

So what earworms did the horde deal with this week?

HIV Outbreak

Needles are behind the recent HIV outbreak in Indiana.

Middle East Nuclear Arms Race

Why bother with a nuclear deal with Iran when it will likely cause Saudi Arabia to obtain their own nukes which would then force Iran to drop any nuclear weapon development restrictions (not that there were any actual restrictions in the first place) agreed to with Obama? In the end, this supposed agreement with Iran that was supposed to hinder Iran's nuclear weapons development instead kicks off a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. How is that good for America?

Blue Angels

Confessions of a US Navy Blue Angel.

Mayor Emanuel

Honoring battles, honoring the fallen, something Mayor Emanuel does not understand. Just sad that he didn't know the story behind the names of two of the airports in his state.

At seventeen we were wed
And worked day and night to earn our daily bread
And every day Emma would go out searching for that play
That never ever came her way

You know sometimes she'd come home so depressed
I'd hear her crying in the back room feeling so distressed
And I'd remember back when she was five
To the words that used to make Emmalene come alive

It was Emmalene
Emma, Emmalene
I'm gonna write your name high on that silver screen
Emmalene
Emma, Emmalene
I'm gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen

It was cold and dark December night
When I opened the bedroom door
To find her lying still and cold up on the bed
A love letter lying on the bedroom floor

It read, "Darling, I love you.
But I just can't keep on living on dreams no more.
I tried so very hard not to leave you alone.
I just can't keep on tryin' no more."

52 Full disclosure. Husband and I live in a gated community. We're not wealthy. I clean my own house. We just recently hired a yard service because husband works 6-6 1/2 days a week.

So, we go to our local club to sit at the bar for dinner.

And then I discover we're sitting next to this ass:

I really, really want to regale the Horde with the NYC jackass I sat next to tonight.

He
was wearing a pink button-down shirt and baby blue cable knit sweater
vest, and so full of himself. He was a Very Important Person in NYC
advertising. Doesn't know how he's surviving here in the South.

He went on. And on. To his silent "friend" victim.

Husband wasn't within earshot, or he would have chucked the jackass on his shoulder with a "Bully for you!"

That sign sort-of made sense in the 1980s before they were screening blood transfusions very well. Isaac Asimov, who didn't do any of the shit you mentioned, got HIV that way.

By the late 1980s? Nah. You had to work at it to catch AIDS.

So Ace put up a post about Phil Robertson yesterday/day before. I didn't comment on it cause my opinion on Ace's grasp of christianity is best left inside my own noggin. Then tonight I see that Ben Howe had written somewhat of a response to ace. It started as a response directly at ace, but then went more into what Robertson was, very poorly, talking about.

I tweeted out a link to the article and said that I thought Ben Howe had written a good response to Ace's post.

Word is the Saudi's heavily financed the original Pak' effort in the 1970s so they've sorta paid it forward.


That said, the Saudis would need serious help deploying them. If they can be air-dropped then aircraft have to be modded to arm/accept them, crews need to be trained on using, etc.

If simply missile-born, the MRBMs need to be modded and tested with the warheads to see if they'll even mate up, then a testing regimen will need to happen to see if they can be reliably used together.

In either case a special branch will have to be created to develop protocols, manage the inventory, maintain control, and, so on.

In other news, I like Jews and I also like Braveheart.

I don't care about the politics of my entertainment monkeys. All I ask is that they entertain me. I don't go to Mel Gibson for well thought out politico-religious commentary, and I don't go to the owner of my gym for stand up comedy.

"That said, the Saudis would need serious help deploying them. If they can be air-dropped then aircraft have to be modded to arm/accept them, crews need to be trained on using, etc."


Back in the '70s, when the Indians and Pakistanis were suspected of trying to develop indigenous atomic bomb designs and production, the initial speculation was that delivery would be by commercial aircraft ... most likely out the rear exit of a 727. Minimal modification would be needed, and 727s were very popular at the time.

Today, the Saudis could do essentially the same thing. Given the availability of used airliners and (ex-Russian) transport aircraft, I think additional delivery work is unnecessary.

I do get it. The "new" girlfriend was a high school friend. I met her briefly this fall in ATL at a fundraiser. She's very nice.

It's just tough that I'm still grieving my BFF and husband's BFF immediately began dated this woman less than two months after his wife was in her grave. His son, by the way, is being married in May, and he's less than happy with his dad.

Well, anyhow, they'll be sleeping down the hall in the guest bedroom this weekend.

The Saudis are already keeping Egypt afloat economically; no surprise they call in some markers from the Arab country with the largest population and military.
Speaking religiously (which I ought not do) and power-politically (which - hey, why not) there can be only one Caliph. So you got Iran, KSA, and (potentially) Turkey duking it out over the carcass of the Middle East with Israel trying to stay out of the cross-fire. Other than hoping for a high body count I can't see anything getting better over there in less than a decade.

"Eh, that's just a horrible way to try to deliver a nuke if you've got any tech on hand. They are slow, detectable, easily defeatable."

You assume that the AC involved is known or highly suspected of being weaponized. Given the lifting capability of most airliners, and the prevalence of air routes, that's not a good assumption, certainly not for a surprise attack.


"You want a quick, low detectable way of delivering them."

Iran does not possess the radar systems that we our military possesses. Flying to Iran from the Persian Gulf region involves flying over mountains and vast expanses of desert/dry lake; mountains sizeable enough to make radar coverage tough, and dry lake areas with no one there.

Saudi Arabia has sufficient mountains along the border with Oman and Yemen, and is mostly desert. They do have the money to buy sufficient air defences though. Bht both sides are vulnerable to commercial flights that fly in to their respective countries ... without or with passengers.

The various scenarios get real ugly real fast ... and portend badly for the future of everyone.

Funny thing. The freighter Arthur M. Anderson got trapped in the ice on Lake Erie about a month or so ago, and the CCGS Griffon had to break her out.
The Anderson was the ship following the Edmund Fitzgerald, the last to speak to them ("We're holding our own") and was the one that lost sight of the lights and the radar return.

For AQ or ISIS, that's a great terror weapon. When you are trying to hit strategic military targets, not so much.

Nobody just starts flying commercial airplanes into commercial airports one day. Airlines, plane numbers, flight numbers, routes.....all tagged. Have to pass serious regulatory anal probings. No "unknown" airliner just comes in for a landing. IFFs are linked to known carriers and when it don't add up, shit happens.

With airliners? No. Air routes are not "free range" zones. The various controls know who is supposed to be there and who is not. They are in constant contact with them. Schedules are known well in advance and if something "funny" shows up the shit hits the fan.

425 BCochran, I'm listening to your podcast from last week now. I'm at the point where you're talking about Scott Walker and his pandering, and I have to agree it's a big disappointment after he built such a solid record of fighting the Left and winning.

I guess the real problem is, he's apparently not willing to fight the Republican establishment. And they're just a much a part of the problem as leftists.

If he's elected, it seems we can expect more of the same. Oh, he'll still fight the worst elements of the Left, except, apparently, on those occasions when the Repug Establishment is willing to "reach across the aisle" and "get things done". And then it looks like he'll fall in line.

I apologize whole-heartedly to everyone who listened when I talked up Scott Walk-Back. I was wrong. He's still an awesome governor, but he clearly does not have what it takes to kick ass and chew bubble gum in Washington.

I guess I'm a Ted Cruz man, now.

With airliners? No. Air routes are not "free range" zones. The various controls know who is supposed to be there and who is not. They are in constant contact with them. Schedules are known well in advance and if something "funny" shows up the shit hits the fan.


You're assuming too much.

You're assuming the more-or-less reality of Chicago-O'Hare, or LAX or Atlanta or NYC-Kennedy, and United, Delta, American, .... which would take a lot of spoofing to fail.

Let's go for small AC from a smaller airline, maybe carrying freight, maybe a 737, or maybe even better, and AN-12 (4 turboprops, cruises at 400kt, ...), and destined for a large of even regional airport.

One such AC takes off from Tashkent, bound for Jalalabad, and "disappears" over the Hindu Kush, or maybe from Aden, bound for Karachi, and "gets lost" over the Arabian Sea. An AN-12 has the payload and range for a 1-way trip to Natanz ...

-- obama cut and run out of Iraq and left a vacuum for ISIS

-- obama conspires a coup of Egypt, Yemen, Libya, and...?? Tunisia, I think

-- obama then sparks a civil war in Syria

-- obama is actively trying to aid Iran in achieving nuclear capabilities

-- obama has done nothing but agitate the palestinians against Israel

Is obama purposely trying to de-stabilize the Middle East. Yes. YES.

Things were great over there when Bush left office compared to now.

Link to 'What I saw at the coup.'


http://tinyurl.com/mzohe6b


I knew it was finished when I was driving up I-95 from Virginia into the city at dawn. From a long way off I saw the two bodies hanging from the overpass. Northbound rush-hour traffic was crawling, so I had a long time to look. I was driving my mother's Acura, wearing a blond wig and big sunglasses. There was no security in recognizable security anymore. A convoy of black full-size SUVs was liable to become a bullet magnet on any highway around DC. I was safer in the white Acura, but feeling very, very alone.

Their ropes were tied to the guard rail above their heads. They were clothed, thankfully, and hooded. Black military-style fatigue uniforms, and bare feet. Their swollen hands were bound behind their backs. The two bodies were slowly twisting without any visible movement to recover them. This told me the bridge might be under a sniper's observation, holding the police at bay while keeping the corpses in view of thousands of Washington's morning commuters, half of them federal employees. A chill feeling, being in range of a right-wing sniper. A white bed sheet hanging between the two bodies was marked with black spray-painted lettering.

No, I am not. Plenty of places in the Indian for it to crash? Yeah. To land.

No.



Note that the planes I list have ranges of 2000+ miles. Maybe a 737 has short legs ... there are plenty of 707s and competitors out there.

Landing in the I.O. is not needed; having the range,and payload, and evading tower control long enough to make any reappearance seem "expected" are the points.

Further, an Iran-vs-SA-and allies assumes the resources to provide sufficiently-large aircraft, local, even hidden airstrips, get the local civilian carriers to cooperate/look-the-other-way.

Having a regularly scheduled flight take off, then have the weaponized plane shadow it through any necessary air-control areas is sufficient to get the weapon near enough to the target ... this assumes that no fighters come and take a look.

There are, of course, variations on this plan.

On a day-to-day basis, this may be true....but his advisers weren't the folks that dumped foreign $millions (or $billions?) into his campaign, selected him as a candidate, and hired those "advisers".

575 Obama is a textbook narcissist. He meets every criteria there is.

And yes, there is definitely a plan. But it's not his plan. He did not become President by his own efforts. That would require ambition, drive, and single-minded determination. He gives no evidence of any of that. He is notoriously lazy, and was totally unqualified for that position.

Throughout his whole life, his path has been smoothed, connections made, and doors opened for him at opportune times. This was not coincidence or happenstance, and he himself seems to believe that he was born to rule.

He was placed in his role. And it is a role. He is a frontman. But for whom?

We know that George Soros was an early supporter. But I don't believe that he is the only one. Could Russia have been involved? Obama's ties to Communism go back to his birth.

There is a concerted effort to destroy Western civilization, and it goes far beyond Obama. We are told by the multiculturalists that every culture is equal, except for Western culture, which is uniquely evil. We are told that all races are equal, except for the white race, which bears historic guilt that can never be expiated.

Every race and ethnic group deserves a homeland, yet historically white nations in Europe and North America are being deliberately flooded with alien immigrants who will irrevocably change the culture and destroy what was.

The Palestinians deserve a homeland, but a Jewish homeland is illegitimate.

America has made heroic progress in race relations over the past 50 years or so, and that has been systematically destroyed over the past six years. Obama never misses an opportunity to inflame racial hatred.

I said years ago that the main obstacles to World Government were the United States economy and the United States military. Both are under unremitting attack. The nation itself is being fragmented and will probably be broken up.

I can only conclude that we are being "softened up" and conditioned to accept World Government as the only solution.

I would still like to know precisely who is behind all this. I assume it is a multinational elite who don't believe in national borders and consider themselves "citizens of the world".

He used a retarded string gauge. He used 13-58, which is some heavy ass shit. You figure most dudes use 9-42, or 11-46. That's all in thousandths, so were an average high E first sting is .009, SRV's was .013. He was tuned down a half step but still, strings like that will shred your fingers.

It probably did.

Tommi Iommi cut the tips off his fretting fingers on his last day of work as a metalsmith, using a bender. He had to wear special tips on the ends of his fingers, and detuned so it was easier to play. The combination of these made for part of his distinctive sound.

591 #582: That is one of the all-time great stories of overcoming a disaster.

Iomme was unwilling to give up playing guitar after that, so he had to reinvent his style completely. He had to wear caps on his fingers, he used banjo strings because they're a little softer, and he came up with a louder and more plodding style.

He took his reinvented playing style to his band, and said, hey, check this out! Skeeter Barnes heard this weird new style of playing guitar, and responded with, hey, I can work with that!

This all added up to the invention of heavy metal, and the birth of Black Sabbath.

The thought had crossed my mind, actually. I am progressing up the metalworking learning curve, considering my options as I go.

The tuned pipes in question are flimsy 1" conduit, so they aren't exactly barrel-worthy material.

Posted by: Berserker-Dragonheads Division at March 28, 2015 02:14 AM (FMbng)

====he's in a wheel chair cuz he was riding a cafe racer like a drummer when it started to rain.

he didn't play again for decades. then somebody talked him into it. at first he tried to record the bass, etc, and none of that shit worked.

then he hit on it --- he uses electric drum pads strategically placed inside an acoustic set. he has a pad just beside his snare and more pads directly below some symbols. so, mostly he plays bass and snare with one hand just going back and forth between 'em. then he plays everything else with the other hand. he also plays bass on the downstroke below symbols, and sometimes he plays symbols going up and bass going back down.

he has 2 hi-hats and he keeps one closed and another one he can set a various open positions. he also programs drum pads with hi-hat open in the middle of the pad and hi-hat closed on the edge of the pad. he plays double bass licks on either pad with his sticks and gets crazy rolling triplets that just kill.

his other main rig is a zen drum. he plays that really well, too. he complains about it not being able to play softly when he wants.

and, he has a conga/bongo/djembe rig. he is passable on that, but he'd be really good if he hung out with some good latin players for a couple months.

I'm pretty sure he did. At least, eventually. He may not have played the drums on the recordings in question, but he did play on some stuff and live IIRC. So, he WAS their drummer, just not a particularly good one.

776 The Dave Clark Five also have the dubious distinction of being the only band ever two have two completely different Top 40 hits that had the same name! ("Everybody Knows.")

They released a song in 1964 called "Everybody Knows" that was a minor Top 40 hit. Then, three years later, having apparently completely forgotten about this existence of that song, they wrote and released a totally different new song, also calling it "Everybody Knows" -- and this new one was also a Top 40 hit!

Being as this was 1967, they were probably too stoned to notice.

"Glad All Over" is considered to have been sung "by the whole band," including Clark;

But another #1, their cover version of "Over and Over" -- my God, Clark only did backup vocals on that one!

So the supposedly correct answer to this question always given in rock music trivia lists may be wrong after all!

Anyway, we already got the "right answer" with The Carpenters and the Eagles.

No, it is weird to have the drummer be the lead singer. That's why it's such an intriguing trivia question -- because singing drummers are in fact extremely rare. "Name 100,000 bands that had a lead singer who played the (gasp!) guitar" would not make a interesting trivia question.

What I found funny then, and still find funny, is that she went to all the trouble of making the sign, and only afterward did she realize how fascistic it sounded, so as an afterthought she added "Why Not" at the top, to slightly mollify (but only slightly) her genocidal clarion call.

This has been going on for a long, long time. As exhibit A, I offer Donatello's David -- http://tinyurl.com/pkvzsj9 -- a 3-foot statue at the Bargello (former jail) gallery in Florence, Italy [which also has the Uffizi gallery, which were former government offices].

For a male nude, this is an enormously attractive piece of art to cis-males. From the flowing tresses and flowery hat to the slightly awkward pose so familiar to anime fans....from the callipygous outline to the androgynous face......but, then, you consider the context.

Donatello, himself, was a flaming pederast interested in expanding homosexual acceptance and recruiting potential sex partners. Of course, he created a "billboard" to put the best face possible on his desires. In his day, if he could get you to buy into this minimally masculine cute figure, he could start bending the curve further and further...until truly bent.

And it's true -- the male vision-processing system locks onto T+A and tracks it by default. It's very easy to fool. But it isn't real interest, it's a reflex -- and no flowery hats or cute poses will carry it further.

Gay white men now forbidden from acting like sassy black women

"Put forward by the NUS LGBT Committee, they believe the appropriation of black women by white gay men is prevalent within the LGBTI scene and community.

‘This may be manifested in the emulation of the mannerisms, language (particularly AAVE- African American Vernacular English) and phrases that can be attributed to black women. White gay men may often assert that they are “strong black women” or have an “inner black woman”,’ they said.

‘White gay men are the dominant demographic within the LGBT community, and they benefit from both white privilege and male privilege.’"

867 The reason we can't stop it is because about half the country wants to embark on a socialist Utopian experiment in free stuff, short work weeks, and high hourly wages for unskilled of labor. The left has spent the past 30 years running the schools, and they have been peddling this garbage long enough to convince people that capitalism and free markets were the cause of the whole economic melt down in 2008. People actually believe this lie. This is what the problem is. It's the public that stinks here, and yeah, the politicians are all too happy to right along with it! The Republican party is worthless and broadly considered to be the racist party, and the Democratic party has been taken over by Utopian socialist radicals. Once all the immigrants from Latin America get their amnesty, there will no longer be a Republican party. It will be done in about 10 years at most.

883 "The Second Coming" by W. B. Yeats --




Turning and turning in the widening gyre

The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

The best lack all conviction, while the worst

Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;

Surely the Second Coming is at hand.

The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out

When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi

Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;

A shape with lion body and the head of a man,

A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,

Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it

Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.

The darkness drops again but now I know

That twenty centuries of stony sleep

Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,

And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,

Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

Posted by: cthulhu at March 28, 2015 04:59 AM (T1005)

884 I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
`My name is Obamandias, King of Kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away".

Down the green hill athwart a cedarn cover!
A savage place! as holy and enchanted
As e'er beneath a waning moon was haunted
By woman wailing for her demon-lover!
And from this chasm, with ceaseless turmoil seething,
As if this earth in fast thick pants were breathing,
A mighty fountain momently was forced:
Amid whose swift half-intermitted burst
Huge fragments vaulted like rebounding hail,
Or chaffy grain beneath the thresher's flail:
And 'mid these dancing rocks at once and ever
It flung up momently the sacred river.
Five miles meandering with a mazy motion
Through wood and dale the sacred river ran,
Then reached the caverns measureless to man,
And sank in tumult to a lifeless ocean:
And 'mid this tumult Kubla heard from far
Ancestral voices prophesying war!

The shadow of the dome of pleasure
Floated midway on the waves;
Where was heard the mingled measure
From the fountain and the caves.
It was a miracle of rare device,
A sunny pleasure-dome with caves of ice!

894 Take up the White Man's burden, Send forth the best ye breed
Go bind your sons to exile, to serve your captives' need;
To wait in heavy harness, On fluttered folk and wild--
Your new-caught, sullen peoples, Half-devil and half-child.

Take up the White Man's burden, In patience to abide,
To veil the threat of terror And check the show of pride;
By open speech and simple, An hundred times made plain
To seek another's profit, And work another's gain.

Take up the White Man's burden, The savage wars of peace--
Fill full the mouth of Famine And bid the sickness cease;
And when your goal is nearest The end for others sought,
Watch sloth and heathen Folly Bring all your hopes to nought.

Take up the White Man's burden, No tawdry rule of kings,
But toil of serf and sweeper, The tale of common things.
The ports ye shall not enter, The roads ye shall not tread,
Go mark[14] them with your living, And mark them with your dead.

Take up the White Man's burden And reap his old reward:
The blame of those ye better, The hate of those ye guard--
The cry of hosts ye humour (Ah, slowly!) toward the light:--
"Why brought he us from bondage, Our loved Egyptian night?"

Take up the White Man's burden, Ye dare not stoop to less--
Nor call too loud on Freedom To cloke your weariness;
By all ye cry or whisper, By all ye leave or do,
The silent, sullen peoples Shall weigh your gods and you.

Take up the White Man's burden, Have done with childish days--
The lightly proferred laurel, The easy, ungrudged praise.
Comes now, to search your manhood, through all the thankless years

896 Hey Fenelon--up early or up late?

897 I'm up early; Having terrible insomnia lately. Just my life right now.

898 Was Kipling talking specifically about the English colonials in India, or England in general, or Europe in general? It could well apply to all of the above.

And having never travelled to such hellholes, or shouldered such a burden so acutely, I still feel that I know exactly what he meant. I know not if that is the gift of his poetry, or the curse of the modern connected world.

899 How's young Mr. Crank and the Mrs., Doctorr?
I guess you're on duty now?

900 .....and, apropos of nothing in particular, I learned tonight that Kipling produced many of his works while living in the US.



Particularly, in Brattleboro, Vermont.




OK, time for everyone to clean up the mess and refresh their drinks......

903 I am indeed, the witching hour is come and gone and now I wait my relief, due in 80-ish minutes. This was my 4th of 5 consecutive nights, will try to drag myself to Palm Sunday services before beginning another stretch of 5 straight on Monday at 7 am.

904 Son of Crank and Mrs. Crank are doing well, she texted me tonight that he clapped but that she couldn't get him to do it again so she could get a video.

905 Eventually they settle down and you get more rest and yes, it' surely an adventure. I understood the concept of God as Father in my head, but I understood it in a whole new way when I became a parent. I think you sometimes post pictures of your boy but I can never get to them because. I am the most inept technology person ever. ;^)

Don't worry; He'll do it again sometime when Mrs. Crank does have a camera. :^)

The poem was originally published in 1899 with the subtitle "The United States and the Philippine Islands" -- but was probably meant to pass on some wisdom from the UK's much-repeated experience in faraway lands to a relative n00b who had acquired the Philippines the year before.


It wouldn't have referred to Europe in general, as their intentions in their colonies weren't based on the same worldview.

Please let Mary Cloggenstein of the Brattleboro womans Health Center know that; It will make her hair stand on end.

Farkleschnitz!!! Thanks for putting me on the spot, there.....I refuse to have a twatter or facerip account, so I have to do weird workarounds.

He's such a cute kid. Makes you want to take him out to some large empty field and help him blow stuff up. After he laughs and claps his hands in wonder, you remind him that you have to disconnect the wires before you can take off the goggles and ear protection and go out and set up the next one....
