Overnight Open Thread (12 Dec 2015)

This warmer weather makes it much easier to catch the Geminids meteor shower. You can check the Canadian Meteor Orbit Radar (CMOR) if it is active before venturing out.

OPM Breach

I still know people who haven't been notified yet. OPM took 5 months to notify victims of data breach. And people still want government to run healthcare and every other facet of their lives?

Obamacare

Eff you Harry Reid and your unions. You wanted this POS so enjoy. Reid seeks parting gift for unions in tax deal. How about we just do away with Obamacare and get "relief" for the millions of Americans who have been negatively impacted by this horrible piece of legislation instead of just focusing on your union cronies Harry?

Christmas Music

This is a fantastic medley from Two Steps From Hell. Starts out a little slow but damn does it get epic.

Immigration

America's immigration challenge: policymakers seldom ask whether their arrival would benefit the United States.

Nobody is making conscious decisions about who is wanted and who is not, about how much immigration to accept and what kind to prioritize-not even for the portion of U.S. migration conducted according to law, much less for the larger portion that is not.

Nor is there much understanding of what has happened after it has happened. A simple question like, "How many immigrants are in prison?" turns out to be extraordinarily hard to answer. Poor information invites excessive fears, which are then answered with false assurances and angry accusations.


Is it too much to ask to at least do some basic analysis and due diligence and not be labeled racist or something?

Super Bug

Well this does not sound good. Scientists have found a new strain of bacteria that is resistant to all antibiotics.

News Bloopers Of The Year

More Investigations

Um whatever. It's all they do. Investigate, investigate, investigate and nothing ever changes or happens. 3 House committees join forces to investigate whitewashed ISIS intelligence.

UAVs

Just a matter of time. 90 'near collisions' between UAVs and commercial jets.

52 Aloha and mahalo nui loa for the Overnight thread. Coming up on the tenth anniversary of my heart attack and quad bypass surgery at age 44, went in 11 hours after the mild attack had (getting the mail if you can believe it). I actually said the words I'm not having a heart attack to my wife. Went in three days before Christmas, so there was no one to do the surgery. Went home on New Years Eve and spent the next three years in deep depression out of work. Still in depression, fired three years ago because of my medical problems, waiting to see if my appeals to SSDI will ever be processed, next June is the best bet my lawyer says. Moral of the story is get your ass to the ER, you will go to the head of the line. Seek mental rehab as well as physical. PTSD is a sneaky, viscious bastard and will lie to you.

And when they say "other" gender, how do they define it? If you decouple gender from biology and stereotypical attributes, how do you even define the word "gender" itself?

98 America's immigration challenge: policymakers seldom ask whether their arrival would benefit the United States.

Further, no one ever answers the question of the cost of the open border / amnesty plans.

I've found that asking an interlocutor if he can honestly describe the cost to a proposal, you will quickly discover those who are interested in actual policy debates and those who only want to railroad through costly and damaging plans for personal gain.

The open borders RINOs like Hewitt will never admit there is a cost. Ever.

Dual boot: Linux flavor for websurfing and then you really only have to worry about securing the browser. And Windont for your legacy programs.

I use a flavor of Chrome called SRWareIron which purports to have locked down all of Google spying. YMMV.

If you have to go Windont only: check out AVComparitives.org for the latest ratings on Anti virus products. I also run occasional scan via free online like Eset and Panda.

I'd also load up Malwarebytes once a month.

Make a boot disk with utilities.

AVs I'd avoid: Kaspersky (almost certain they are FSB ) and any Chinese AVs like Baidu.

The Avira has one minor corner popup whenever you boot up asking you to 'upgrade' to the pay version but once you've Xed it out, it doesn't appear again for the rest of the session; and Malwarebytes doesn't have anything even that unobtrusive.

My dad's 8.1 p.c. just has the AVG freeware on it.

I also use NoScript 2.7 and Adblock Latitude 3.0.3.1 on my Pale Moon browser that's my main browser.

And the tech guy my family uses was just over today for something else and I had him put the Adblock on my 8.1 netbook for using the Internet Explorer that I use on it. He said there wasn't' a version of NoScript available for IE when he looked for it at my request if IE is your preferred browser.

Here's the way I look at it. Fedzilla requires that minority owned businesses be given top priority for Fed contracts. The front man in Argentina would probably have had a hispanic surname. He low balls the network admin contract bid. Gets root access to OPM and just hands it over, or more probably, sells it to the Chinese guy in Shanghai. No real investigation done on the Argentine guy because that would be raciss.
In effect, OPM just handed the keys to the Corvette over to a complete stranger that they knew nothing about and told him to take it out for a spin. And then they act all surprised when the cops call and tell them that they found the 'Vette wrapped around a tree, with no witnesses and no driver, and they estimate that he was doing about 220 when he hit.

198 174 Was NOT a hack job.

Here's the way I look at it. Fedzilla requires that minority owned businesses be given top priority for Fed contracts. The front man in Argentina would probably have had a hispanic surname. He low balls the network admin contract bid. Gets root access to OPM and just hands it over, or more probably, sells it to the Chinese guy in Shanghai. No real investigation done on the Argentine guy because that would be raciss.
In effect, OPM just handed the keys to the Corvette over to a complete stranger that they knew nothing about and told him to take it out for a spin. And then they act all surprised when the cops call and tell them that they found the 'Vette wrapped around a tree, with no witnesses and no driver, and they estimate that he was doing about 220 when he hit.

There's an old story about a guy who dropped his wallet in San Francisco and, as you suggested, kicked it from Chinatown to his hotel, into the elevator (which was full of people), up to the seventh floor, down the hall to his room, and into the room. He then shut the door behind him and bent over to pick up the wallet, only to bump into the doorknob.



They figured this all out from the "locked-room mystery" they were presented with after they scraped him off the sidewalk. It explained all the wear and contamination on the wallet's outer surface, his observed behavior, and the ballistics calculations that showed he must've been sprinting at top speed when he went out the window.

I like that she's watching them -- and (despite their being phony as all get-out) she watches them critically, against the experience of living here for 18 years. Since we bought the house, we've entirely painted the outside, entirely painted the inside, removed 1/3 of the ugly off-white wall-to-wall carpeting, cut a door into a wall and took over a section of hallway with a walk-in closet expansion (contractor), put a door from one bedroom into the garage (contractor), put a pull-down stair into the attic (contractor), removed all the blown-in crap insulation in the attic, had asbestos abatement remove all asbestos insulation from attic, installed batted fiberglass throughout attic, installed a 3/4" plywood deck everywhere in the attic taller than 18", used fencing material to cordon-off all of the attic under 18" tall, painted all of the attic cross-braces white so I'd stop banging my head on them, replaced the large 1950s sliding glass door with a double-paned double-french with sidelights, replaced the dining-room crank-out window with a bay window (contractor), had the brick hearth and brick fireplace face and bay window bottom faced with granite slab (contractor), replaced the concrete-slab back patio with pavers (contractor), replaced our wooden fence from the street (contractor), replaced our wooden fence with the neighbor (contractor), upgraded the wiring to modern code (grounding, ground-fault) (contractor), installed hot-and-cold running cat 5 and coax throughout (contractor), moved the furnace to the attic and upgraded to AC (contractor), moved the hot water heater from an internal closet to the garage (contractor), completely rebuilt the kitchen (permitted, no contractor, >$80K, nearly killed me).....



And so, every time someone on the show says, "dated fixtures" -- she snorts. Every time someone complains about the color of one wall, she mutters, "whiner." Every time someone goes, "oh, but the basement isn't finished", she does a facepalm.

I'm a Broncos fan. I'm legit terrified (not for this week!) about the next 6 or 7 years with Carr and Cooper in the AFC West.

Those two have the potential to be very very good.

It also kinda makes me happy for the Carr family. David was a good player that never stood a chance with an expansion team. Though he does have two Super Bowl rings so it's not like his career was all bad.

One of us is being very upfront about using a manipulative literary technique to cause one of several desired reactions -- the other has used terms like "dickish", and had a post @355 that used "you" or "your" quite a bit.



When you initially @317 requested that I "paragrapherate", my initial impulse was to explain the joke. [Note to self: Never, never, never, NEVER explain the joke.] Your initial impulse was to make it personal. For me, it's not personal. I intentionally used a literary technique that should drive most sane people to eventually bail out on a paragraph, but had just enough information that someone really interested might read to the end and go, "kewl!" That's all it is.



And, BTW, once I get out of this neo-Socialist hellhole, and am living much closer to you (but more than a hundred miles away), I would be very interested in having a discussion about your vehicle business program -- to the point where I may want to franchise the model.

Getting banned is a pain-in-the-ass. There are very few I might wish it on -- and fewer still who should get it for slapfights or umbrages (although some who were banned for slapfights or umbrages absolutely needed to be banned -- and banned permanently -- because they were dropping malware on people.....ahem).



MWNP and I often rub each other the wrong way -- he's a long-time sales-dude and I'm a long-time accountant -- and we've had lots of opportunities to irritate other accountants and sales-dudes, respectively, over the years. But we can also respect each others' appreciation of family -- MWNP with his daughter, me with our godkids -- and principled positions.

And, BTW, the exact two turns' rotation -- spot on. That's what I was shootin' for, that's what I got. It has been years from when I first got interested in this area to this milestone -- and I'm pretty pleased by getting here. It's a far cry from what I want to do with this, but it's significant.

443 earlier today i posted the comment that i thought it was about time servicemen thanked me for paying their salary. i went so far as to say that if a soldier came up to me in an airport and said "thank you for paying my salary" i would look him in the eye and say "you're welcome" and shake his hand.

well, this is was not received well here.

Um, yeah, I can see why. That ranks pretty high on the Worst Thing You Could Say scale.

Soldiers are the one and only thing I would voluntarily pay higher taxes for. They're worth every penny.

Unless of course you'd like to learn the joys of IED's, suicide bombers and surviving Third World hellholes.

If so, have at it. Otherwise, STFU.

I saw the writing on the wall years ago, and I've got the fiancee watching 3 straight hours of "house hunters"-type programs. She's had this love-hate beaten-spouse relationship with her job during the same years. The question is whether she'll break up with her abusive job or the bottom will fall out of the economy and trash the value of our house and our investments first. When I initially evaluated the issue, there was a decent safety margin......now, not so much. Still hopeful.



I admire your deal because it clearly adds value to the economy. It repurposes things to better utilization -- which will increasingly become an issue when our society unwinds the malinvestment of the last two decades.

462 "Decorating the Christmas tree" basically means putting ornaments on until everyone gets sick of doing that and wanders away. I went to watch "Fred Claus" and fell asleep and am now wondering if I should slog on or just tinsel and call it.

I think I need to cull ornaments, but I'm too sentimental. What do people do with old ornaments? Knowing me, I will probably give them to the local Goodwill and then buy them back in a fit of nostalgia five years from now. That sounds about right.

Did you catch this news? Also from Missouri.

http://preview.tinyurl.com/grrlzg8

WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (AP) _ Pulaski County authorities say a deer hunter found a cache of explosives along a trail in the Mark Twain National Forest.

Sheriff Ron Long says in a news release the hunter found the explosives Saturday on a jeep trail where he normally camps and called 911.

A bomb disposal unit from Fort Leonard Wood responded to the scene along with sheriff's deputies and Missouri State Highway Patrol troopers.

Long says the explosives were detonated at the site because they were too volatile to move. A small fire after the detonation was extinguished without further damage.

Police described the explosives as something that could not be bought for recreational use.


I agree: Many are soon about to find out real terror is all about. I can foresee malls at peak Christmas shopping season being hit, and schools (like the schools the dead SB jihadi scoped out while doing his health inspecting gig.

528 I'm not a fan of all yogurt flavors, SMFH, and I really hate that thick, goopy 'Greek' yogurt that seems to be all the rage. I only like Dannon yogurt, and I like the coffee flavor year 'round. I like the lemon in the heat of summer. I will occasionally pick up a vanilla or blueberry one for variety. Better for my waistline than munching on chocolate, which I inhale (thanks Ma for that oversized sweet-tooth you created with your wonderful pies, cakes, cookies, fudge -- chocolate or butterscotch with or without walnuts -- brownies, et.al.; I tell people all the time I grew up in a 24/7 bakery except I didn't have to order anything, just open the fridge). I also buy plain yogurt when I want to make some tongue-burning curry.

I love poi.

Not something a lot of folks would eat on a regular basis.

531 Yawn, stretch, guzzle coffee.

Mornin' 'rons!

Loving this globull warmening, man. Going to be in the low 60s and partly cloudy today here in the greater Buffalo area. They were forecasting rain but they backed off on that. Going to hit the woods and work on my winter tree identification skillz. I'm good at it when there's leaves and stuff, but doing it in the winter takes some work. Watched a bunch of YT vids on the subject as preparation.

Aaaand... I just tried to hit the wrong end of my e-cig. Gah. Need moar coffee.

532 SMFH, my Mom told me stories about poi when my Dad was stationed in Hawaii back just after WWII (and way before my arrival on the scene). She couldn't stand the stuff. And this from a country gal who ate squirrel stew and other 'delicacies'.

533 I can never hear the word "poi" without hearing the old Billy Crystal routine: "The waiter says it's called 'poi.' So I says, 'Then throw it in the 'POI-let!'

535 Heh RickZ,

My kids hates poi also, and they were born in Hawai'i.

They didn't grow up there like I did, so that's partially it.

They grew up in GA, KY, and TX; that's where their tastes lie.

543 The reason you can place here _________, but let's face it socialists think the world population has every right to be here. Somewhere I saw they are working on a law to give them that right (it was a no religious requirement law ) that could be stretched to stand for any discrimination.

How widespread is that? I know we have gardening threads that regularly feature "name that leaf". There's no reason why someone couldn't invent something to take a sample of leaf or bark and identify it based on dna, or visually recognizing the leaf, if there were enough demand.

But it's more fun to ID them the hard way, and gives me something educational to do while hiking.

Being in the transition area between the Eastern Deciduous and Laurentian forest zones, we have a total shit-ton of tree species here. That's a scientific term.

I think I counted 11 types of oak alone, in my tree book, and 12 different maples.

557 I saw Exploding Kittens open for Exploding White Mice. What a mess that was.

Meanwhile, I'm still trying to figure out if Trump deliberately snuck in what I think he snuck in here:

"I'm going to win...You know, I'm not one of these other guys that goes down. I don't go down. I go up."
