Overnight Open Thread (24 Jul 2015)

Y'all ready for the Lobster War? The tiny islands where Canada and America are at war. All Canada needs to do is start a negotiation with John Kerry and the odds are pretty high they'll get what they want. It worked for Iran.

BTW, in case BC hasn't told you yet, today is national tequila day. Drink up morons.

Pot Cookie Death

It is probably not wise to sell a pot cookie that if eaten whole far exceeds the recommended dosage and is the leading cause in your death. I guess they should've included a warning that ingesting pot takes 1 to 2 hours to feel the effects versus 5 to 10 minutes when you smoke it. Regardless, its not like you'll follow instructions when the munchies hit anyway.

Australian Healthcare

Australian Medical Association President threatens Obamacare style healthcare if insurers don't change some of their cost-cutting behavior. Funny we're being used as a negative example. There used to be a time when we were held up to be the standard. Sigh.

Jurassic Heels

Autism

I would argue that this has been painfully obvious for some time. Rise in autism may be due to semantics, study finds. Jenny McCarthy hardest hit.

Facekini

Why bother going to the beach if you are going to wear the Facekini? This might lead to a rise in flamboyant bank robbers though.

American Accents

Cities Americans Are Ditching

These are the top 20 cities Americans are ditching.

Interestingly, these are also the cities with some of the highest net inflows of people from outside the country. That gives many of these cities a steadily growing population, despite the net exodus of people moving within the U.S.

DHS

We really need to do away with the DHS. DHS has ignored 2008 advice on implementing improvements in order to deal with EMP and solar flare threats. Probably too busy covering up their sex scandals and helping out new "immigrants" cross the border and relocate.

Doggie Tales

Feel good doggie story. Woman fights alligator to save dog.

Dog Video

Clever dog.

9 YES, the CED player.
Played a video disc using a STYLUS. An analog system!

The disk was in a cardboard sleeve. you put the whole sleeve in the machine, it sucked out the disc and ejected the empty sleeve.

The video quality was better than a VHS tape, if I remember right, but not as good as a laser disc.

Myrtle Beach on Sunday for the week, w00t, then a quick trip to J-ville FL to pick the grandkids up for a week, then back down to J-ville on the 13th to drop the two oldest off and see the newest be born.

59 I remember when CED hit the stores. Essentially the same as a phonograph with video as well as audio, which meant the media degraded with use. It was early enough that most people didn't have VCRs of either variety yet, so the value of being able to own movies was there but the disadvantages of competing mediums weren't obvious.

CED potentially had a big price advantage because so little processing was required but the company didn't have a clue how to leverage that. So much that is obvious today was uncharted territory then.

Yeah, had the CED well before the VCR. The local Radio Shack would rent the discs just like later video stores would. I remember though that it would tend to "stick" at times while playing and a small pop to the top right-hand corner of the player would fix it every time.

One of the crew got promoted so we had a wetting down and at some point he challenged me to a drinking duel. I think I downed 12 shots plus a few good German beers and he couldn't keep up. The OIC informed me the next morning that I kept him up all night as he could her me ralphing in the hotel room next to me. The front desk charged me for a new decorative tree as the one that was in the hallway had somehow ended up out in the street, thrown from my balcony. Supposedly I said before we retired that night that it had looked at me wrong and I just picked it up and chucked it and that was that. God that was a brutal hangover.

When I attended the University of Casual Sun Bathing in the early 80's, I had a roommate who decided to play with tequila slammers -- you take a shotglass, fill 2/3 with tequila, top of with coca-cola, cover, slam on the table, and shoot still fizzing. He and four other guys went through four bottles.



Later, most of the hall was crammed into one of the dorm rooms, "Zoning" (watching Twilight Zone episodes, sometimes with alternative soundtracks [e.g. Pink Floyd "Dark Side....]), when he abruptly got up and left. As he passed into the hallway, I noted that he was tinged green.

Then there are all the doggehs and cats that get eaten. And they have them in Texas and australia, too. Shudder!

I remember seeing them at the zoo and being scacred to death. Plus, they stank to high heaven.

That bloomberg article on the cities is obvious bullshit. I'm pretty sure the numbers are a LOT worse than they're claiming. Plus, the reasons they give are lefty cocktwaddle about higher housing prices squeezing out workers, blah blah.

And DC's new residents are largely high-tech workers? My pasty, hairy fat ass they are. Gov drones working for a rapidly growing bureaucracy, the lot.

rrpjr, certainly not in recent times (senator calling his caucus leader a liar on the floor).

In modern times actually most of Cruz's speech would bump up against/go over accepted rules of decorum (some Senate historian was quoted today saying the opposite - that's bunk - this was extremely rare, as in hasn't been seen in modern times). Probably have to go back to the testiest moments of the civil rights filibusters for comparable, if then - and again, about one's OWN party leader? Nah.

I assume you caught some of the discussion here about it. Wow. This place is, it seems, becoming a bit more shallow and teenage all the time. Leave it right there.

Oh, and Cochran, Brazilian rum tonight. Scandalously lazy, didn't feel like muddling the limes to do a proper caipirinha, so just limes and ginger ale. But perfect for our equally scandalously humid/warm weather (for here - this would be a mild summer day in most of the east, northeast, and south).

This Sanhedrin is basically just a bunch of rabbis claiming this high authority and has no real authority under Israeli law in the slightest.

But nonetheless, it's a hoot.



The Sanhedrin were the Supreme Council of the Jewish People during the time of Christ (during that era anyway). Its probably a good idea they have no real authority.

IG, I think you're referring to the comment thread that revolved largely around Cruz's comments. It's not the doom and gloom, as you put it, it's the sophomoric snark posing as worldly cynicism that is becoming really obnoxious (from some commenters). Nothing more than shallow memes and bumper-sticker slogans in response to events, even when they are highly unusual and interesting, as Cruz's verbal skinning of McTurtle was.

Stuff was a gorgeous amber color in the glass, and tasted faintly sweet, and I'm still trying to sort out the various flavor undertones.

Which means I'll probably have to get a bottle of my own, right?

Then there was the time a senator known (then and since) for his unctuous upstanding character who basically brazenly lied to the chair and then tabled an amendment that was pending so he could make a World Series game back home. Amendment author was literally red with fury, looked like his eyes were gonna bug out. Was sitting right there for that one, and knew it was coming - his staffer was a buddy who could barely contain his laughter as he told me what was about to unfold.

395 Re: autism. no question that the rise of many healthcare issues is more statistical than real. in obesity for example, we persist in using BMI as our measurement of "obesity", despite the fact that it was never intended to define obesity and it's well known, and has ben for 10 years, to be an unreliable standard. I'm not saying there's no obesity, and no rise, but we simply have no idea, because we're using a meaningless standard.
Diabetes OTOH, really hasn't risen at the rate that you read about all the time. What has changed is that we keep adjusting downward the "normal" range of blood sugar, thereby making people "diabetic" who weren't before we changed the ranges. And we really don't treat these new 'diabetics" any differently than we did before we started tinkering with the lab values in the 80's. So the numbers may be growing, but the treatment of most new cases isn't changing, so are they really "diabetic"?
it reminds of those 30 million, 40 million, 46 million uninsured that made obamacare so "necessary". Because when you really looked at the numbers, it was really more like 10 million,

It's all about the specials, but we've gotten super-cheap deals at Excalibur and Imperial Palace. Mind you, the first thing you do after getting dressed is go elsewhere, but that's easy enough to do.

Lived in DC for many many years. Let's just say that the incomprehensible (to a SoCal guy) summer weather *did* have at least one compensation. Hmmm, how to phrase it. Well, if you worked downtown, and you were a young male with healthy impulses, the summer scenery was spectacular.

And I cannot prove that in all that time I did not, in fact, partake of a tiny bit of that resource - far below what I deserved, of course, but there's my cursed history in a nutshell. Enough, before I really get in trouble. Anyway, you get my point.

I don't know if I've tried Cherry Coke Zero, but everyone goes on about Diet Pepper and I'm not that enamored of it.

My problem is that aspartame gives me migraines. I can almost tolerate Coke Zero because they cut the aspartame with sucralose.

Used to be able to get Diet Coke with sucralose (yellow lid on 20 oz bottles), but haven't seen any for years.

Pepsi stopped making Pepsi Zero, which had sucralose. They're supposed to be transitioning normal Diet Pepsi to sucralose this summer, but haven't done it yet.

Diet Rite Zero is good, but has no caffeine; what's the point?

Note that there were some assumptions built into my suggestion -- primarily that the Bachelor Party stuff will probably be on the Strip. If, somehow, the Bachelor Party stuff is elsewhere, going off-strip will result in a large discount. But discounted transportation costs on-strip are a good reason to keep to it if the event is there.

If it the middle of the week, most casino hotels can be had for under $100. If it's on the weekend, go for some non-gambling motel or extended stay place off the strip.

Of course, a lot also depends on where the wedding is being held, and how drunk you are planning to get.

When a group revels in the things that lead to failure, and decries the things that lead to success as "acting white"...

The existence of black super models suggests that black women can be just as attractive as women of any other race (and my personal experience with certain black women who aren't super models points to the same). So something else must be at work.

Milo, who is awesome, wasn't trying to insult anyone, just reporting putative facts. Which lined up with my general suspicion. I noticed years ago how black women were generally portrayed in the media. They tended not to be love interests, just the strong, often angry type. Law and Order was the worst offender. Yikes.

But I must admit that, having gone to an HBCU for undergrad, sadly, that stereotype is not too off (forgive my horrible grammar). But man, did my college have a LOT of attractive people.

586 Lupita's attractive, but no wow. She does hit the Cosmopolitan/Hollywood/Press buttons, though.

She's "international" and nonwhite, so they get upper class and dodge colonialism. She speaks English well so the Hoi Polloi can understand her. She was educated in the US, so she knows what to say at cocktail parties.

Non-threatening, bien-pensant "other" for the inbred upper classes to have photos taken with.

That's inherent qualities aside, of course, she may be very talented.

It is much more simple that that. It is an individual thing, not a generic group thing. Trying to pound this square into a circle doen not end well. An attractive woman who is cool and fun to be with transcends the barriers/definitions of accepted standards.

Fact: humans evolved in Africa.




Fact: the greatest genetic diversity among humans is found in Africans -- you might as well figure that all the genetic diversity in the entire rest of the world is among first cousins.



Corollary: Africans would be hyper-sensitive to distinctions between differing types of Africans -- while non-Africans would tend to have more distinctions within their own subgroup, but could find beauty within many African subgroups.

There are a few lovely black women at my local church (different congregation from mine, though). Unfortunately, they're all a bit on the young side for me. A rather lovely looking black woman did turn up that was in the right age group a few months ago... but she was just visiting from France.

She was impressed when she came back after traveling in SoCal for a few weeks, and I remembered her name.




I've also seen a rather lovely looking one at the local game store a couple of times, buying some Warhammer 40K stuff. Unfortunately, I haven't seen her using the gaming tables, so she's never been in the store for very long.

Those in their 30s and younger have had their heads filled with this shot, and women are in very imminent danger of n9t finding a "Man" in this group.

I have a 19 y/o daughter. I asked her off and on for the last year whats up with her and dating. Her answer: "Dad, If I could find even one Man out of this vast field of Boys, I might consider dating them."

Such is the state of men her age, and she is going into Sophmore year at Alabama.

Pepsi stopped making Pepsi Zero, which had sucralose. They're supposed to be transitioning normal Diet Pepsi to sucralose this summer, but haven't done it yet.

Diet Rite Zero is good, but has no caffeine; what's the point?

644 My ol' '97 Crown Vic would give 400 miles to a tank, with about a 35 mile reserve. That's with the cruise set at 74 mph.

Sadly, my F-150 is not quite so miserly on the gas. But, it hauls the tools and ladder.

And as for the wimmins? Beauty is beauty, beast is beast. The JEF's wife is a formidable example of the latter.

A woman need not be "hot" to be very, very attractive. The woman who plays Dr. Bailey on Grey's Anatomy. Short, plump black woman, opposite of type of a Tyra Banks. But, she's cute as hell, and has a personality that carries the "act" she portrays in that role. She could not act such, without that true personality existing within.

She's VERY attractive, and fails on all the conventional "hot" metrics.

Decade or so back, I dated a 40 y/o smokin' hot white lady, for a seven month time frame. She'd never had kids, and her looks were such that she'd instantly qualify for any Budweiser calendar in an instant.

Absolutely Nucking Futz. She'd been pursued so much, all her life, that her values and perceptions were so totally skewed that she could not relate to a normal, chivalrous adult male. So, the relationship failed.

Black women on the bottom of the attractiveness scale?

Hardly.

Crazy women are at the bottom of the attractiveness scale.

645 Fact: humans evolved in Africa.




Fact: the greatest genetic diversity among humans is found in
Africans -- you might as well figure that all the genetic diversity in
the entire rest of the world is among first cousins.

I was going to drop that bit way up the thread...

One of my things is the asian/almond eyes... you have that on every continent.
Pretty much every genetic characteristic is found in the old homeland, but I do hear that red hair is a genuine genetic mutation that occurred since one of the two big human migrations out of africa.

They don't call them a "cowboy Cadillac" for nothing. And a Cadillac Escalade is nothing more than a tarted-up Suburban.


Only caveat I have? Avoid the "1500" models, built on the "heavy half-ton" pickup platform. Get the "2500", preferably 4WD, built on the 3/4-ton pickup platform. Everything is stronger, brakes, axles, wheels, springs. Ride is a little harsher, but you can't break it.

We do age well, LOL. Thanks, melanin!

My mom just turned 70 but people are routinely shocked she's over 50. No wrinkles. She is an extreme case, though, and annoys me by looking so good when I'm still unmarried.

When I was yet again chastising her for drawing attention to herself when she should be trying to marry me off, she said, "Don't worry. You'll be a bridesmaid at my wedding." So mean! But we all laughed.

815 So I am working away on this ancient motorhome, made from a 1947 Flxible Clipper highway bus. Took off the right side headlight pod, an aluminum casting that holds two 7" round headlights. It was badly cracked, the result of a collision years ago. No problemo, I has spare parts, from a parts bus. Remove the headlight pod from the parts bus, take the headlight buckets out of it, and start buffing off the multi-layers of old paint. Hey! It's real cast aluminum, not pot metal, and it'll shine up real nice. So I'm polishing away, and the paint's coming off, and the bare metal indeed has a nice shine.


So what happens? The damn thing breaks in half, right on my lap. An old crack, that ran to the end. So now I have to try to weld it. Because where do i find another?

Nope. Which is yet another reason to be careful about poking fun at them.

I'll also note that while Obama was running away from anything and everything that might involve killing terrorists, the French were performing a successful military intervention in the Ivory Coast. I know the popular view of them involves running up the white flag. And I don't know if there are great differences in quality between different French military units. But the bits and pieces that I've heard every now and again suggest that the modern-day French military is a competent organization.

A couple years ago I got some from a friend with a medical pot card that he grew. Holy sheet. I had a few hits off a doob and I was wishing like hell there was someone else in my house that would hand me the water glass that was right next to me.

836 Yep. I am a peon in the oil industry in Alberta. Hence the nic.


Flatlanders: Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmour, Butch Hancock. Outlaw country, tinged with rock. Very, very good.


Little Feat? Mostly Lowell George. Sort of acid-head southern rock. Supposedly Lowell George got fired from Zappa's band, the Mothers of Invention, for writing and recording Willin', which is an awesome song. Dixie Chicken is another Little Feat song that everyone should know.


Toni Price? I know little about her, other than she comes out of the Austin alt-country scene. Her song, The Richest One, just absolutely nails the broken-hearted tear-jerker style of country music. Just nails it.

865 Note well that the Second Amendment was written by folks who had just fought off the pre-eminent military of their time using firearms they happened to have lying around. If someone said, "the British have machine guns, but you shouldn't" they would have laughed themselves silly. They had every intent that free citizens should have machine guns, RPGs, claymores, nukes, and ICBMs -- in addition to and alongside of anything the US military could field.

That resolves to a youtube of Bach, which doesn't make sense in context. I'm throwing a flag as being a suspicious link. Apologies to goon if it turns out good, and tinyurl is de ebil.

So you are finishing up your senior year? What do you plan on doing for a living?

868 Should I want to own a tank, while the Federal government should "take note", they should leave me the fuck alone until I prove myself unworthy of said tank.

I'd really only buy it to do 'donuts' in the street and possibly fire a shell at a burm or ten.

...and then I'd probably drive over stuff that I shouldn't.

...I don't deserve a tank.

There are some free-market limitations on owning a tank. First, you have to afford one -- and, second, you have to buy one from a dealer that has likely been sued for previously selling one to a guy who did donuts in the street and popped a few neighbors.

871 It is in the context of .. when one thinks that they have done their best, which may be true, there is a Yo Yo out there somewhere, so keep on climbing, keep practicing and never give up. I meant no insult to the thread, only encouragement to those hanging by their fingers upon the rock. God bless all here.

My neighbors are cool. Any "*popped*" neighbors were due to my amateur proclivity with said weaponry.

They have my "pre-apologies", as well as my "guilty" plea in any given Court of Law.

In fact, I'll refrain from such purchases in the future; if only to prevent such unnecessary casualties.

My non-purchase of said weaponry had already led to a decrease in malfeasence and imaginary death.
