Overnight Open Thread (27 Nov 2015)

Hope you morons had a good Thanksgiving and are surviving the Black Friday brawls and traffic jams.

You can rest easy knowing we have top people tracking the "JV team". FBI using elite surveillance teams to track at least 48 high-risk ISIS suspects. Only 48?

"It is a big resource drain. Yes it is. Almost overwhelming," Coats said when asked about the demand placed on the FBI. "There will be a lot of people over the Thanksgiving weekend that will not be enjoying turkey with their family. They'll be out there providing security for the American people and the threat is particularly high during this holiday period."

So the FBI is strained as it is and the President wants to bring in more "refugees" and law enforcement won't even be able to ask about a person's religious affiliations or beliefs? That's a recipe for a disaster.

Weather Gal Dress

Heh. Every female meteorologist is wearing this same $23 dress. They also have their own journolist.

Breast Friends

Okay then. Breast friends feed each other's children.

Improbable Movie Weapons Part 2

Funny Spider Story

This is pretty good. Police rush in after man heard screaming 'I'm going to kill you'.

"Where's your wife?" an officer asked.

"I don't have one," the man replied.

"Where’s your girlfriend?" he pressed.

"I don’t have one," he said.

Police told the man neighbours had heard the screams, the threats to kill, the dull thud of flung furniture. "Come on mate, what have you done to her?" the officer asked.

"It was a spider," the man replied sheepishly. "A really big one."

"What about the woman screaming?"

"Yeah sorry, that was me," he said. "I really, really hate spiders."

Boots On The Ground

So how's that no boots on the ground thingy going? How the U.S. campaign in Iraq has escalated with a new weapon: rocket artillery.

If Every Store Was Honest About Black Friday Ads

Climate Deal

Yeah, people aren't buying this AGW BS. Public support for tough climate deal declines.

Gas Taxes

Why do you never see gas taxes itemized on your receipt. Here's the kicker.

I said, "Why don't you put a sign in your window, listing all the taxes they customers are paying on a gallon of gas?"

He said, "That's illegal in Illinois. I would get fined and could lose my gas station!"

Try the Water Method:

Saute pan, add number of bacon slices to fit pan, add enough water to barely cover bacon. High heat in this case, boil the water off.

When the water is almost gone, reduce heat to medium, cook until crispy done. You may have to flip or push the pieces around, so stay on the station.

57 ZH has some more stuff up about Turkey's oil smuggling. It was about a paper from some economist/market analyst types, who think they came up with a statistical signature that would help locate where ISIS oil is passing through.

They got a match from the Turkish port of Ceyhan. The authors make clear their statistical analysis is not proof, but it is consistent with what they predict you'd see if very cheap ISIS oil was making it out into the larger market through Ceyhan.

The port is operated and controlled by a Turkish state-run company. Erdogan and his Islamists are up to their eyeballs in running ISIS oil. The only ones they care to fight are the Kurds.

Attaturk is rolling over in his grave, with all the pains he took to keep the Islamists out of power.

61 The trick to crispy but still juicy bacon is the resting time, get your slices to a nice brown in the pan, lots of flipping so it cooks even, then put the slices on a thick stack of paper towels and let the residual heat cook them the rest of the way till they crisp up, perfect bacon every time.

83 Breastfeeding feeding friends?

I was writing a story about human infants being raised as litter mates with an apex predator, and I wanted it understood by the reader that the human infants had feed with the infant predator, and the infant predator had fed with the human mother, but I was thinking it was too extreme for the readers.

The goal was to have the human and the predator grow up as brother/sister.

Is that why my book won't sell? I went too far?

Posted by: Larry Steinless at November 27, 2015 10:33 PM (98+Sc)

84 Dog's dinner party: We had that. Almost.

This year at Thanksgiving, we had
our faithful dog (m),
my sister's little "comfort" dog (f),
her son's medium-size dog (m),
and my son's medium dog and large dog (f's).

That's a new record for number of dogs at Mom's at once! Sister's little one and nephew's rescue fellow were allowed inside!! Special relaxed rules for Sister's side, I guess. Hmph. The little one even got up on Mom's chaise lounge with her. Really cute, actually.

My son & company went home last night, so just three dogs for the leftover feasting. We had to put ours and nephew's dogs in the garage because it's cold and rainy.

There was an occasional growlfest, but no violence or blood drawn.

Fortunately, the same can be said of all the relatives!

Here's a scary thought, I shop at the King Soopers next to the Planned Parenthood where the shooting took place all the time. I remember driving past an occasion pro-life protestor holding up signs decrying Planned Parenthood on my way in. Peaceful folks who will now be smeared as ultra-violent psychopaths who need to have their guns taken away pronto. Not like those peace loving Muslims who are so cuddly and warm in their burkas.

My parents are now adamant that I get a concealed carry permit. Probably gonna sign up for a course in December and then apply.

113 ChemJeff do your bacon in the microwave when you need help with the not charring it.

Even better bake up all of your bacon into pre-cooked bacon and then just heat a serving for 45 seconds.

Broiler pans work good so the water and grease drain off and the bacon cooks. and even though its fatty bacon a bit of cooking oil spray on the pan and tray makes cleanup easier.

134 So, this maybe of no import, but I present it here for any morons to comment on.
I'm out with another couple, enjoying a nice meal. To my side is another table occupied by "captain of industry" who I know quite well and have had business dealings with,
Somehow, at our table, we got around to talking about the current state of the union and how we seem to be careening from from social calamity to another. I made mention of the "works" of George Soros, his influence here in the US as well as around the world and that, in my opinion, he's a destabilizing influence where ever he's putting his money to work.
I share my meager knowledge of his past and his connections to elements antithetical to the interests of classical western thought. My companions were unaware of his "dealings". Our conversation moved on to more prosaic topics and the name of Soros never came up again.
The other table finished their meal and got up to leave. The Captain of Industry stopped at my chair to say he knew George Soros and played golf with his good friend Stan Druckenmiller. And that I was completely out of my depth regarding my depiction of Mr. Soros as well as his influence and regard for the USA.
There was the veiled / implied threat that I was or would be persona non grata in any future dealings within my community on a personal or professional level.
I'm normally circumspect in my pronouncements publicly. And here, in a moment of candor, in the company of friends I'm undone.
I'm kicking myself for being open in my opinions, and I'm pissed that I'm going to pay a potentially huge price for being right.
I fear for my wife's business and my kids beginning their careers, the guy is that powerful.
I hate myself for wanting to turn the clock back and have a clean slate.
Fuck...

186 browndog: I'm kicking myself for being open in my opinions, and I'm pissed that I'm going to pay a potentially huge price for being right.

That's unfortunate, but have faith in the power of truth. Soros is evil $#!+ from everything we know.

Too bad you couldn't stand up and reply, "You, sir, might strive to inform yourself and vet your golfing companions more closely."

It can be scary to be frank in public, online or off.

Twenty years ago, I'd written a couple of fairly mild (IMO) letters to the editor of the local rag. My son was arrested (on bogus charges of beating me up!), his lawyer overheard the D.A. ask if his Dad (me) was the person who wrote those angry (or something like that) letters to the newspaper?

Small town, and we'd just recently moved back with our family, were trying to start a business. I've never written the paper since.

Here's the thing -- there are many, many, many more people out there who think Soros is a danger to our Republic than people who personally know Soros and play golf with Stan Druckenmiller. I wouldn't be surprised if the ratio were something like 20 million to 200. And the last thing that those 200 people want is for that 20 million to grow to 30 million. If they can intimidate you with veiled threats, they might certainly do so -- but making a bigger deal out of it is contrary to his interests.

199 Itemized taxes on receipts should also include taxes on the front end - all that shiite passed onto the end consumer - corporate tax, income tax labor, fica on labor, etc.

Pay stubs should show all the shiite taxes and overhead the employer 'pays' but is hidden from the wage earner, again fica, employer's 'share' of insurance, medicare medicaid, regulatory/environmental burden...

That is true but it is not all on the coach. The QB is erratic and prone to throwing bad passes. It's hard to win any game when the QB throws 4 INT's. Plus the refs had a couple of questionable calls to be honest that went against NEB.

I don't like it when folks on here use a tinyurl for YouTube. As I was saying in one of the morning art threads, I DL YouTubes and thus minimize what Googley thinks I've watched.

There are several taxed taxes. Sales tax is computed after excise taxes are added on gasoline, for instance. And in California, the sales tax is levied on the beverage container deposit (and not refunded when you turn in the cans or bottles).

Plus a smartphone that would need several fiddly touch screen steps to get to the speech recognition to dial would not work for the limited vision 85 year old aunt. A stationary phone that connects to landline and would dial based on saying "CALL grandson" is what is needed. I guess I may have to try some Amazon and web searches and see if anything comes up, just thought collective horde knowledge might be a shortcut.

Of course, if you really want to go Breitbart on it -- write a letter to the Captain of Industry asking if he would ask his buddy Soros about a certain small list of well-documented facts, including links to source documents. Y'know, stuff like donating at least $3.5M to the Tides Foundation (a "donor-advised fund" that supported "Occupy Wall Street", among other things). Perhaps he should advise his buddy Soros that lying down with dogs generally results in association with fleas.

280 257. well EBT is general debit allowance right. They call it SNAP if it its the one just for food.

If someone has SSDI or other government monthly check that now comes on a card they can spend it as they wish. And around here there are "coats for colorado, donate to energy assistance, food banks as well as the SNAP, low income housing etc " so the average EBT person probably has more "disposable" income than hard working folks what have to pay for all their necessities after taxes.

The first challenge was blind trust, kinda of trite at this point, but why did our protagonist just blindly accept a 'retreat with the most fabu tech guy in dah world?'

Second, stupidity of mankind. He wasn't very rational interviewing the subjects, was he. ... Now this may not be the best example, but I'm not a fan of plots that are pushed forward by the stupidity of the 'protagonist.' And by 'not a fan,' I mean loath.

"predertermination" would only matter if the invitee was some kind of god, which obviously the shiv in the fucking gut says otherwise.

And... your 'first challenge' holds water, but ask yourself: let's imagine Mark Zuckerberg held a contest for one "lucky* Facebook employee to spend a week with him on a new "secret project." Do you have any doubt that about 95% of FB's drones would enter the contest? I don't. :-)

Posted by: qdpsteve at November 28, 2015 12:02 AM (ntObR)

314 Browndog, I've just read your comments, and first, I will pray for you and yours. I would also advise you to vent here, and then let it go. Do your work to the best of your ability. Provide your customers with exemplary service (which I wager you already do) and give "Captain of Industry" or anyone else who could criticize you, no reason to do so.

I would also advise you document every meeting you have with clients. Begin a journal, if you don't already have one, date it, write down their names, and jot down conversations with clients as soon as you finish the meeting and they leave. You may even want to send an email to said clients with a run down of what was discussed, in order to maintain a paper trail.

If CoI decides to screw with you, by claiming you don't do your job, or you do things that are inappropriate, you have a written record of your dealings with clients that can refute that, and perhaps help you in litigation, if it comes to that.

I used to work for the government. I got burned pretty badly (was told to abort my baby if I wanted to keep my career, by my female boss. It got ugly.) I learned that the only way to keep jackals such as these at bay is to document them to hell and back.

And then, don't worry about it. Live your life. Love your wife and kids, and don't waste a precious moment of your time with them on those jerks. They aren't worth it.

Army's "Attack'em" is a wondrous weapon, maybe even a Wonder Weapon.
But what it's not, is, Rocket Artillery. It's a rocket.
Rocket artillery would involve a fired shell that then ignited a propellant.
I think several powers played with rockets that fired from the barrel, but it eroded the barrel pretty fast. Rocket fuels are some harsh shit.

I haven't heard much in the highly-filtered combat front news of the smart artillery shells. Last I heard, they were scary accurate, had good range, and cost $50K a shot. I'd been hoping for some Wal-Martization on those.

I'm just sayin' -- I spent a lot of time dealing with attorneys back in the corporate world, and there is one technique that can be remarkably effective because it runs contrary to most people's impulses: when faced with a dispute that has the potential to cause you significant discomfort, make it bigger. Rope in more parties and make the consequences worse for everyone.




That way, instead of A and B yelling and snarling at each other, you also have C, D, E, and F going "simmer down! I never asked to have anything to do with this!"



Hell, flip it on its head -- write to Soros and tell him that CoI's thuggish tactics are making all the conspiracy theories more plausible. Y'know -- Penthouse Letters style: "I've heard so many wild-assed theories about your being behind every Socialist bad idea of the last three decades, and maintained a certain amount of skepticism because they seemed so outlandish -- but a recent encounter with the closet Totalitarian CoI has me reconsidering my position. Are you really funding every anti-American wackjob in the world?"

- Leon: The Professional (of course)
Again, different enough from the standard fare to warrant some of the praise heaped upon it.

One of the few 3rd acts to top the rest.

- Young Frankenstein
Need to view Frankenstein and some of the '50's Universal films to 'get' the parody.

- Minority Report
Awfully indulgent. The 2nd and 3rd acts are bloated.

I've seen bits and pieces of Zhivago. In fact a few years ago when I had a DVD recorder, I recorded it from Turner Classic Movies.

Haven't watched it yet, however. I *do* want to hold for myself a weekly series of epics, though. I also have Lawrence of Arabia, Ben-Hur, Once Upon a Time in the West, Once Upon a Time in America (the longest movie I own: Sergio Leone's director's cut, which runs *251* freakin' minutes), and Heaven's Gate. Would also like to get a copy of Otto Preminger's "Exodus."

393 "Robert Lewis Dear, the suspected gunman, is from Hartsel, Colorado. According to KDVR-TV, he was previously a resident of North Carolina and is originally from South Carolina.

Dear’s age has been reported to as both 57 and 59, but public records indicate that he is 57. His family is from South Carolina, according to public records and his father’s obituary.

According to court records, Dear has an arrest record in both North and South Carolina. He has been convicted of several traffic offenses, but has been arrested several times on more serious charges.

His convictions include seat belt violations, driver’s license violations, operating a vehicle in an unsafe mechanical condition and driving a non-registered vehicle.

Dear was charged in Colleton, South Carolina, with two counts of cruelty to animals in 2002, but was found not guilty in a bench trial.

He was also charged in 2002 in Colleton with charges of “peeping Tom” and eavesdropping. Those charges were dismissed."

435 "people aren't buying this AGW BS. Public support for tough climate deal declines"

That's hardly unexpected where our day-to-day pressures to render that AGW BS less existential. But public support is by no means the only element that might lead to a climate deal that's whatever - tough, fake, practical, bullshit ... whatever. All elites and leaders need to get to 'whatever' is sufficient ROOM to do what THEIR consensus tells them is simultaneously required & politically possible.

What I think we're seeing over time, as we alive all get older and the live die out at a rate that's less than the new people entering life, is a pattern of distinctly higher TOLERANCE for what elites and leaders do with the intention, illusory or real doesn't matter, positive vs negative likewise, divined in their perceived consensus. That's not the same as greater SUPPORT for what any such consensus occasions government bureaucracies into seeking to enforce.

How can that be different? Well, one avenue would be in the lack of any strong correlation between that trend - which may not last very long, in the sense that nothing much in the way of fashion lasts all that long - and strongly, broadly based populist movement against that perceived consensus or the resulting policies, laws and regulations. That's what I think - for what it's worth; it's just one reader's opinion, after all - is actually going on: more and more in our population have in essence given up on their opposition to a consensus among political leaders in government and social elites to doing ... whatever.

There may actually be short run political consequences to what that consensus leads to, but whatever happens in the long run is going to be a function of whether the apparent CONSEQUENCES of just carrying on and doing nothing become more existentially alarming - thereby leading to an effective DOWN-grading of this as an issue that movements coalesce against, or indeed for.

My own view is that ASSUMING we as people quasi-organized into countries - after all, just politically organized social units - end up doing anything major (which I think is inevitable) AND ALSO effective as seriously ameliorating the growing crisis, at least to the point where SOME decent percentage of our species survives this century we're in now (I think that a survival rate of 10 percent of the current population is sufficient to at least allow for the possibility of longer term prospects for humans, but also that any percentage beyond 50 is fanciful), that would be surprising.

Those of us who are most likely to expire over the next 20 years will, in cosmic terms, be entitled to count ourselves, in the net result, quite fortunate. I sure as hell don't want to be there to see the worst of what's about to happen, and I don't envy the youth of my children and grandchildren that's likely to qualify as least some of them for that 'privilege'.

447 So far as I know, all AT&T services are provided via the telephone line.

When I turn on the Directv service at my dad's house it says something about ATandT

Well, that is true, AT&T has acquired Direct TV Satellite, but Uverse voice, internet and TV, so far as I know, are delivered via the phone lines.

It just struck me as odd seeing ATandT connected with Directv. But it's my dad's house so I have no real info on the connection. Or Uverse etc.

452 I think Buzzion means no phone number when he says no land line, meaning the physical line is there, just no phone service, that was how we had DSL.

Posted by: All Teh Meh at November 28, 2015 02:38 AM (uaANl)

453 That's a possibility, but I was more concerned about the technical aspect: is it possible to have DSL service and no land line account?

I'm guessing AT&T will say "no", and I need to be able to push back.

Posted by: Arbalest at November 28, 2015 01:29 AM (FlRtG)

Yes.... you can, as long as the old phone line is already there... even if it is not in use.

Posted by: BB Wolf at November 28, 2015 02:43 AM (qh617)

454 443 I have AT&T Uverse Internet and cable. No landline. So it should be possible.

Uh, how do the signals get in and out?

For Buzzion, it turns out the downed phone line landed right on his grave marker.

455 Apropos of nothing, but if you're a guitar player and you have DSL and you find your phone line is in need of repair, guitar strings make a capable replacement in a pinch.

Phone = "Unshielded Twisted Pair" from a "Central Office". In our case, the CO was a cabinet about 2'x4'x4' about three blocks away for a long while -- but, now, I expect it to be a module hanging off a telephone pole about 9"x9"x20", that connects to the rest of AT+T's plant using fiber. The UTP cable used to be CAT2, but is now likely to be CAT5 (capable of running Gigabit Ethernet).




Yeah, AT+T stuff connects via the telephone line.....but it's not the same telephone line as granny used.

Well, there have been all sorts of systemic disruptions -- our normal trash pickup is on Thursday, so that didn't happen; nobody outside of retail works Black Friday.....except the fiancee; we have our usual Black Friday prank (walk to the mall, then walk out of the mall with packages as if we were going to our car......except we live close enough to walk. See how far we can string-along people wanting our parking place).

464 Karl Denninger has been on a tear of late regarding Android Apps that presume too much. For example, there are apps that constantly report your GPS location even when they're not active on your screen -- http://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=230924 and http://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=230914 .



It's a goodly part of why I'm shopping for a dumb phone, and why I treasure my '94 Honda wagon. Too much of what government and/or business attempts to do to me is an attack and/or swindle. The less I'm open to such attacks, the better off I'll be.

Obama's iran deal is fake, nothing was signed, iran has the green light to become a global atomic power and the USA was betrayed by its own government, as many said at the time.

Enjoy Thanksgiving.

I'd link to Bill Hicks saying "go back to sleep America" but am too fucking pissed off to bother.

Also we're the only people doing Thanksgiving in the country where I currently am other than the Embassy and they're kind of the JV team I'm mad at.
