Overnight Open Thread (10-26-25) [Misanthropic Humanitarian]

Good Evening 'Ettes & Rons. Please rise and remove your hats. Wearing pants is optional.

A little history for you. On this day (10/26/2001) President George W. Bush signed The Patriot Act. Feel any safer? Notice any changes in your civil liberties? Just asking.

Speaking of your 2nd Amendment rights. Have you seen this from the 2nd District Court of Appeals? It is not good for firearms owners. I suspect canoe registrations will increase in the near future. Of course canoe accidents will be on the rise.

Law abiding Americans who responsibly possess firearms are a threat? Yet, we enable our enemy Iran. How much American & Allied blood is on their hands in Iraq and Lebanon? They are not a threat?

muslim its a clock.jpg

Did you morons keep peace in your family? Yesterday was National Mother-in-Law Day. But, take heart, tomorrow (10/27/15) is National American Beer Day. I suspect the crowd here on Tuesday night might be Lite. There are still a few breweries here in the great US of A that aren't owned by foreigners. Have a cold one for me, would you?

The left has hijacked our National Week Observations with the following:
Disarmament Week: 24-30
Peace, Friendship and Good Will Week: 24-30

Think I will ask Mrs. MH for a little peace, friendship and good will after I have disarmed her. IFYKWIM


Many of the Horde live in southern climbs and can not fathom living in the frozen tundra. Well when life hands you ice, do something with it besides putting it into a high ball glass.

Tomorrow the prodigal cob returns. It sounds as if his expense account has dried up. He has been staying at the European equivalent of a Motel 6. Rumor has it he has been performing jobs the Europeans and the Muslim refugees won't do. He should be happy that we left the torches on for him. We could prepare a fated calf. But, that sounds like work and CDB has posted a recipe for one. Maybe we could slide him bologna sammich through USB port. Welcome back Maetenloch.

Good night & be well.-Misanthropic Humanitarian

Not a single reference to party affiliation in the whole article. I posted that I will bet they are democrats and took a shower. When I got out of the shower, my friend had replied that they were and how did I know? I explained what the media does. I told him that when Republicans are busted, it is either in the headline or the first sentence and that when dems are busted it is never in the headline, never in the first sentence, and you usually find it in the middle or the last paragraph. He had never noticed before do I told him to keep his eyes open, I was not stretching the truth even a little.

Hat, I've been trying to glance at Euro news sites for coverage on the invasion and, no surprise, the "coverage" gives absolutely no hint that there are anything other than operational problems.

As insane as it is, I don't expect "Old Europe" to do anything but take it. Yes, Merkel (who turns out to be as incompetent and extreme as her predecessor, though in different directions with less personal sleaze) was begging the Turks for mercy a week ago, but I don't see the compliant, submissive, denatured things populating Old Europe really doing anything to stop it.

Bill R., as you may know that phenomenon is known as "Name That Party!".

Same goes for issues, not just tribal team names. Illegal aliens in a crime story? "Name That Immigration Status!" Or, in a hilarious example in a WSJ story last year about long-eradicated infection diseases making a comeback in the US, a 30th paragraph vague reference to almost all of the new outbreak being in "southwest border states".

I don't see any hope, however. Maybe here or there someone who can think for themselves will snap out of it, but the media is so much worse than even 10 years ago, and I rarely find or hear of someone who has the background and inclination to re-educate themselves.

Yet 20 years ago it was easy to find people - a majority in my experience- in the former USSR who had long ignored Soviet official lies, and had a decent grasp of the world and esp. what a positive force the US was.

I think that banned individuals can read comments; just can't post.


You know what would be wicked fun to do to banned trolls? Set it up so they can "post" comments OK, but only they can see them, if viewing from the IP address they posted from. Nobody else, except maybe cobs, could see them. This would drive them nuts. They'd be posting all kinds of inflammatory shit, and getting zero response, because none of the other readers could see their shit.

33 Primordial, I figured something was wrong with Chrome. But *every* time I would try to change anything with Chrome, namely uninstall it... it wouldn't let me. Also, my freeware Malwarebytes couldn't remove a few items that I thought might be causing the problem; it would find them, then crash when I'd ask it to remove the items.

It really looked like malware, especially when you can't make changes to anything.

Rumors (rumors, mind you) that your glorious warriors in Congress, or at least the "leadership" is considering a TWO YEAR CR. Almost hope it's true, and they try it.

Some time ago I began to feel detached from all this, as only an outside observer to the civic degradation of America, so I admit kinda wanting to see just *how* far things can go.

If nothing else, think of the hilarity of our lame GOP apologists (do we have any left?) actually pretending to believe there is a rationale for such an atrocity.

36 @22. You're right, of course. But right now I don't have any solutions. Sometimes the clues are there and you can deduce what's not being said but other times there is no way to get the actual truth without extensive research. Most people, myself included, just don't have or make time to look further. At 56 years old, I have almost always been aware that every story in the press that I have first hand knowledge of, the media has gotten something wrong. Today, they are doing these things purposely. I fear for our country. My biggest problem these days is how do I explain to people that my side has somewhat fewer crooks? Because truthfully, most all of them suck!

44 I go shooting with a guy from Sri Lanka who went to school in North Dakota, lives in New York, and is temporarily in Silicon Valley. I was griping about being overscheduled, but then laughed -- and launched into an explanation of "first world problems." I told him about the lag in Social Security during the 70's, which led to stories about senior citizens forced to eat cat food to get by -- which were promptly vacuumed up by Pravda and rebroadcast to the USSR as an example of how cruel and inhumane evil Capitalism could be.



....whereupon the average Soviet citizen said, "holy shit!!!! They're so rich they have special food for cats!?!?!?!??"



I probably could have told it better, as I was driving and had to focus on that, but he was laughing his ass off....

Bill R., exactly - and I've put it the same way for years - people go to the car wash to get their car washed, they rely on a mechanic to fix it, they expect the nurse to know how to give the flu shot - modern society is specialization and dependence on others. Yet the critical function of simply telling people what's going on in the world, and providing any kind of intelligent framework to understand it, is nearly completely defunct. And people, per force, depend on that.

Thus the bizarre phenomenon of "educated" successful people who are comically misinformed about big issues in their world. There is no solution.

Inertia is the greatest force in nature. For the most part, inertia in good ways is all that's keeping the US going, and much of the western world (where the inertia was less, and is visibly fading).

cthulhu, that's a venerable but good one (Soviet joke).

In the late 70s, used to shop at the Georgetown Safeway, where the low-level Soviet Embassy employees did their shopping. Frequently saw them standing in an aisle, clearly overwhelmed by the abundance and variety and choices (then again ... these days, I have the same experience when I confront 83 varieities of BBQ sauce!).

One of the highest level Soviet defectors ever was pretty hard set against accepting American prosperity, so the intel types flew him anywhere he wanted to check it out. He picked Nashville or Memphis or some upper south city. Reportedly after his visit he had a sort of breakdown, as his lifelong fantasy framework was crushed .

I read everything with a dose of skepticism. I believe it's gotten worse in the last 10-15 years. Now reporters have gotten so lazy they don't even run spell check before publishing. I am probably a spelling Nazi but an article by a supposed professional better be spelled right. I never pick on regular folks for grammatical errors but pros get paid for their use of words and I always call them on it.

The thing is, it isn't a joke. It's humorous, but it's the real deal. The fiancee and I went on a trip a few years back to Saint Petersburg -- and we were marvelling in one of the central markets in the city (possibly the main one).....when we came upon a display of berries in convenient plastic boxes, labeled in Russian, from Driscoll's ( www.driscolls.com ).




That's right -- a capitalist company headquartered in Watsonville, CA, has market penetration to where its goods are prominently featured in Saint Petersburg, Russia. It boggles the mind.

This one isn't rumor. Heard frmr congressman Campbell (assume he was guest hosting Hewitt's show) "explain" why you knuckledraggers need to lower your expectations.

You see, ExIm Bank, to be (maybe happened tonite?) re-authorized by the House w/ a combo of Dems and GOPe, without any "reforms", might have gone a different way. You see, if only the hardline extremists had recognized that "you can't get everything you want", a different package incl. "reforms" might have passed.

Got it? You want to kill a completely expendable entity that is just one star in the vast constellation of useless or harmful govt. agencies and programs. The useless drones who want to continue it have no arguments or good reasons to oppose you. So, the obvious thing to do is to cave, and support "reforms" that are as credible as North Korean treaty commitments. Otherwise, your own party will have to join the vile, freak Dems to just continue the thing unchanged. Cuz reasons, or something.

No exaggeration here. Campbell literally believes that "compromise" is continuing a govt. program when you can and did kill it.

This one isn't rumor. Heard frmr congressman Campbell (assume he was guest hosting Hewitt's show) "explain" why you knuckledraggers need to lower your expectations.

You see, ExIm Bank, to be (maybe happened tonite?) re-authorized by the House w/ a combo of Dems and GOPe, without any "reforms", might have gone a different way. You see, if only the hardline extremists had recognized that "you can't get everything you want", a different package incl. "reforms" might have passed.

Got it? You want to kill a completely expendable entity that is just one star in the vast constellation of useless or harmful govt. agencies and programs. The useless drones who want to continue it have no arguments or good reasons to oppose you. So, the obvious thing to do is to cave, and support "reforms" that are as credible as North Korean treaty commitments. Otherwise, your own party will have to join the vile, freak Dems to just continue the thing unchanged. Cuz reasons, or something.

No exaggeration here. Campbell literally believes that "compromise" is continuing a govt. program when you can and did kill it.

Posted by: qdpsteve at October 27, 2015 02:21 AM (ntObR)


Not that particular situation, but I did get stuck in a similar traffic jam on I-40 in New Mexico this past August. Road construction, and both westbound lanes came to a standstill, and then moved, creepingly. I managed to get into the left lane, and noticed eastbound traffic was moving in batches, with large gaps. No warning signs at all for construction. Finally, I said Fuck it!, and drove across the median, waited for a large gap in Eastbound traffic, and entered the eastbound lanes, and got up to speed without inconveniencing anyone. Went about 2 miles to an exit I'd previously passed, over the highway, and onto a State road, which was a stretch of the old Route 66. Drove for about 8 miles at a breezy 45 miles an hour on the deserted road, past hundreds and hundreds of stationary vehicles on the Interstate, and finally got past the construction bottleneck, and rejoined the freeway at the next interchange. Never saw a cop. If I had been pulled over for doing that, I would have just clutched my gut and said, "Man, I had to do it, something I ate didn't agree with me, and I need to hit a restroom real bad."

My stepsister works for a mid-sized newspaper and I got this info second-hand from stepmom but according to her they wanted five articles a day from their reporters. Step-sis does more long-form reporting about local business and this apparently doesn't apply to her but I found that hard to believe. I keep forgetting to ask her about it myself. No wonder the quality sucks. That's barely enough time to fact-check a Kardashian's butt measurements.

In 1978, checking out a line outside a small food shop in Leningrad, I spotted brightly colored boxes up at the front. Sunkist boxes - oranges. Feeling some guilt, I got in line, but only bought a few to bring back to my fellow students. Aside from that one time, the occasional Pepsi/Fanta appearances (rare) were the only western goods observed in a whole summer.

Well, if you don't count the Willy's jeep trailer (WWII) I saw in a park that was being used to carry a big tank of kvas (local barely tolerable beverage).

Sadly, as I've been slowly and reluctantly becoming more expert on internet security, I've been coming to the conclusion that you can never be as safe as everyone has been claiming. It's like parking your car on the street -- any asshole can decide to throw a rock through the windshield. Anyone can grab banking info out of your mailbox. Anyone can get into your home wireless network.



In most cases, the government plays a game -- the harder it is to prove a case, the more they throw the book if they do. You may get eight years for killing some guy, but 35 years for sophisticated tax fraud. But breaching the laughable level of internet security is mostly a skate. I'm going to be following the CIA guy's case with some interest -- it'd be very different if they treat the hacker's Verizon fraud as a ToS violation with no teeth v. treating it as criminal fraud because of its easily foreseeable consequences.....

Hi, Anna! Your arrival reminded me of something. I was sorting through some boxes of VW parts that came with a parts Beetle I had bought, and I found a strange little "thickness gauge" (for want of a better term). It's a shallow cup, about 1.5 inches in O.D. and a quarter-inch deep. The flat base has a 3/4" holes in the center. The "rim" of the cup is about 3/16" thick, and has about 8 notches cut in it, of varying width, all the same depth. Adjacent to the notches, on the base of the cup, numbers are stamped, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, IIRC. The smaller numbers align with the bigger notches. Sheet metal gauge? American Wire Gauge? O.D. of the cup is knurled, and the whole thing is nicely chrome plated. No maker's name, or any label. Any guesses? I don't think I have ever seen odd-numbered gauge wire used or sold.

Oddly enough, if you explain to your internet provider that you're burning the network back to the walls because your security was compromised, most of them will swap hardware without complaint. Wait a week before plugging in the new, and you're almost certain to have a new IP.



The reason for this is that they are extremely lax when it comes to security. For example, they'll ship you "customer-premises" equipment with a printed tag that has a 9-digit numeric system password that is wi-fi enabled. This allows systems to be probed for administrator access several times a second.



In areas like mine, ISPs have gotten wise to this and will turn the wireless radios off, hang a WAP off a wired connection, and only allow conversation to the router from other direct-wired ports.




But they still react the same if you tweak 'em. "Security breach, need new router" and they'll swap everything.

I would be guessing not. Under IP4, there are 256^4 possible addresses, of which several zillions are system-defined and unavailable. It has been extended with NAT to handle zillions more.....but actual IP4 proxy servers can't be very common, or banning them would break the internet.

He can just use a free web proxy server. All it does is act as the intermediary for web access so the web site sees the server's IP. People use these for anonymous surfing but they are also useful for something like this particular problem.

It's not a big deal. Anyone can actually set up their own personal proxy server on a web site they have hosted somewhere (though it would take a bit of code). It's no different from having all your web traffic go through tinyurl, in a manner of speaking.

Gmac only needs one for a new address. If he were really bothered he could use TOR which would automatically take care of the particular IP problem, but some people might not want to be bothered with all that.

Anyway, there are lots of free web proxies available. I never used any so I can't vouch for them but I assume they are about the same as other similar web services (like free dynamic IP DNS hosting) which are pretty decent.

I would still turn the modem on and off a bunch of times. The IP is likely to change at some point. But, barring that using a free web proxy for access here is not that big of a deal. startpage search engine allows people to view pages over their proxy server (because I guess they have a lot of perverts using them or whatever ... just kidding) as that goes with their whole "we don't track you and don't want to know you" claims.

You don't have to create new addresses for a proxy server. All you have to do is provide access for someone from some different address. i.e. I could offer you proxy services from my current address. There's no need for anything else.

And proxy servers don't have to have static IP addresses. They are just regular, run-of-the-mill servers that offer to transport web requests and responses - just like tinyurl, as I had written above. It doesn't matter what the IP address of that particular server is or whether it stays constant or not. It's just a server on the web that is helping someone else by passing internet notes back and forth for them.

Were I running a blog, I'd sit it behind a firewall that filtered all known proxy'd addys. Banning each IP would then ban all who used that IP as a proxy.




Let's take a simpler situation -- let's say someone was travelling and used a hotel's Wi-Fi for some salacious comments on AoSHQ and got IP banned. No surprise, later Morons in good standing would find themselves banned at the same hotel since the IP address belongs to the hotel, and not to the guests using the Wi-Fi at the hotel.



The point being that an IP4 ban acts at the IP4 level -- the misdeeds can occur several levels deeper. One hotel guest misbehaves, the hotel gets banned. And there are only a particular number of proxy servers.....and when they're all IP banned, it's not like there will be any more.

We recently did a road trip to Vancouver, during which we rode a number of ferries.

I think we're saying the same thing but in different ways. If you react to any guest staying at a Hyatt hotel by banning the IP of Hyatt hotels, you will efficiently shut them up. And at the level of Hyatt hotels, there just aren't that many IP4 addresses. If someone is running "Joe's IP proxy service" at a particular IP4 addy, they may as well be "Hyatt hotels" at the same addy. There are only so many IP4 addys, and the malfeasance by a user at one could lead to reflexively banning the entire IP.

Somewhere between London, Ontario and Windsor, Ontario. I had to be in Detroit Rock City on business by Monday morning. But my b-day happened to be on Sunday so I got a very late start. From western NY to Detroit is only 4 1/2 hours if you go through Canada. I didn't drink at my b-day party because of the upcoming drive but I had imbibed plenty of coffee and a large fast-food drink.

I was on a forlorn stretch of highway with no rest stops in sight. Really desperate. Then I spied the empty McD's cup on the floor of the car.

I carefully unzipped and had at it, all while driving 100 centimeters or kilowatts or whatever they call them up there. One thing I hadn't counted on was that I needed more than one cupful, so I had to pull over to the shoulder twice to carefully dump the contents.

But it all worked out. Checked into my room in Windsor at midnight on the dot. My employer wasn't cruel enough to make us actually stay in Detroit.

124 Good morning Morons. Got a job interview at 8:30 this morning, and another at 3 pm today for a career change into one of the most plumb jobs I can imagine getting paid to do. If all goes well there will be another interview with a four or five man panel next Tuesday. Wish me luck. Say a prayer.
