Overnight Open Thread (12-30-2015)

Quote of the Day I

There is no racist like an antiracist: That is because he is obsessed by race, whose actual existence as often as not he denies. He looks at the world through race-tinted spectacles, interprets every event or social phenomenon as a manifestation of racism either implicit or explicit, and in general has the soul of a born inquisitor.

That is why a recent cartoon in the Australian newspaper aroused the ire - I suspect the simulated ire, the kind of pleasantly self-righteous ire that we can all so easily work ourselves into if and when we want - of the guardians of racism purity.

...The reaction to the cartoon, however, was indicative of what one might call the will to outrage. This will precedes any object to which it might attach, and many people wait as if in ambush for something to feel angry about, pouncing on it with leopard-like joy (the leopard, so I was told in Africa, is particularly dangerous, for it kills for pleasure and not only for food).

Outrage supposedly felt on behalf of others is extremely gratifying for more than one reason. It has the appearance of selflessness, and everyone likes to feel that he is selfless. It confers moral respectability on the desire to hate or despise something or somebody, a desire never far from the human heart. It provides him who feels it the possibility of transcendent purpose, if he decides to work toward the elimination of the supposed cause of his outrage. And it may even give him a reasonably lucrative career, if he becomes a professional campaigner or politician: For there is nothing like stirring up resentment for the creation of a political clientele.

-- Theodore Dalrymple

Quote of the Day II

Less discerning types than Snuggles have demanded to know what I'm doing releasing a cat album. Well, one reason for doing it is that I'm being sued for a sum in the high seven figures by global warming "hockey stick" inventor and self-conferred Nobel Laureate Michael E Mann, and the case is now well into its fourth year in the choked septic tank of the District of Columbia "justice" system. So one is obliged to be a little inventive just to keep oneself afloat.

-- Mark Steyn

Quote of the Day III

There you have it: middle-aged white guys, once again, oppressing hipsters. Couldn't see that coming. Time for a remake of Surf Nazis Must Die (which is starting to look more like a documentary in retrospect)?

-- Steven Hayward of PowerLine

Quote of the Day IV

"To drop off your children with your family, go for a nice walk, and then see Star Wars again with your wife."

-- Moe Lane in Mo-layn, What is Best in Life?

The Bottomless Economic Ignorance of Liberalism

Even a moment's thought should provide a couple of reasons for this.

Mark Steyn: Why Is Bill Cosby Finished While Bill Clinton Is Beloved?

I found it interesting that, among "liberals" in the US, the only two journalists who were prepared to speak out against the "sociopathic gangster" were both old Fleet Street hands - Hitchens and Alexander Cockburn. By contrast, on the eve of the impeachment trial in Washington, David Frum and I had a cup of tea with a prominent American media leftie and, after a bit of chit-chat about the latest damning revelations, David asked him why he and the rest of the press were sticking with Clinton. "Well," he said, "in the end he's our guy." Hitchens quite rightly despised that.

It's 'Anti-Feminist' to Say Feminists Are 'Not All Lesbians' Says Angry Feminist Who By The Way Is a Lesbian

Mark Steyn: Just Lie Back and Think of Multicultural Sweden

The Syrian reportedly also spit her in face and said, "I'm going to f--k you, little Swedish girl." The men, who lived at the same asylum house, denied knowing each other when questioned by the police.
Sometime during the night, she was awakened by the Iraqi as he raped her. The woman managed to break free and locate a train attendant. To the attendant's surprise, the woman did not immediately want to press charges. The court documents state: "The train attendant asked if he should call the police. At first, the woman did not want him to do so, because she did not want to put N.N., an asylum seeker, in a tough spot. She felt sorry for him... and was afraid he would be deported back to Iraq."

Looking at a Real Rape Culture

The first question to be asked about any proposed group of immigrants is, why do we need them? It would seem that, given our hypersensitivity to "rape culture," those who require training to understand that "women have value" and that a smile does not represent consent to rape should receive low priority.

I'm Shocked, Shocked To Find Out That the German Government Spies on Everyone

The FPS Approach To Live Fire Training

Military and police organizations are eager to get their hands on another new electronic marksmanship tool; Shootback. This is a remotely controlled (by a shooting instructor) weapon that shoots accurate (up to about nine meters) plastic bullets during kill house training. What makes Shootback so useful is that it records audio and video of each shot it takes. This is especially valuable for trainees who get to see, from the shooters perspective, the shot that got him. With a generation of troops who grew up playing first person perspective (FPS or First Person Shooter) video games, the Shootback videos look very familiar but in this case are helping the trainee learn how to survive in battles where real bullets are used.

...The most difficult type of training is for combat indoors. "Clearing buildings" is dangerous, chaotic and hard on the nerves. Again, very deadly for green troops. Commandos developed the "kill house" concept to provide realistic experience for that sort of thing, as even elite troops needed practice. If was soon found that this experience provided a decisive edge when facing troops without such training, or experience in fighting in buildings. When fighting indoors, everyone is unsure of who is where and up to what. Whoever moves the most decisively, and shoots the straightest, tends to win fast, and with little loss.

Kill houses can be used firing blanks, but that does not give the same training effect. Another option is using "simunition." This is special, lower velocity, ammo that will leave a welt, but not cause a serious wound if you get hit. Even commandos sometimes use simunition, but this requires special parts for their weapons and, of course, the special ammunition. Much better to use the real thing.

Marine Corps Says No Thanks to Robot Mule

Because too loud.

The massive robotic mule developed by Alphabet-owned Boston Dynamics won't see combat with U.S. Marines. LS3 (Legged Squad Support Systems) was meant to carry cargo for weary soldiers in the field. Funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, the robot was capable of walking with 400 pounds of equipment on its back. LS3 could run for 24 hours straight on a 20-mile mission across rough terrain. No controller was needed; it took visual and verbal cues from soldiers to find its way. So why doesn't the Marine Corps want to use it? The robot's gas-powered engine isn't exactly the stealthiest piece of technology.

Vox: Wild animals endure illness, injury, and starvation. We should help.

Apparently writer Jacy Reese is unfamiliar with nature, red in tooth and claw, and wants it to conform to her oh-so-sensitive-and-perfect view of How The World Ought To Work. WeaponsMan is also unimpressed:

Speak for yourself, child. The wilderness here begins three meters behind our groundskeeping shed; the wilderness ate our beloved cat Khalid bin Mahfouz a couple years ago. We know the wilderness. We daresay we have more nights logged under the stars of four continents than an entire convention of sunken-chested, monitor-tanned environmental activists. But that line, risible though it is, was a rare moment of orbital near-approach of self-consciousness to tender Jacy; mostly, her piece is worse than that. If you dare, Read The Whole ThingT: she plows on in the same sort of glassy-eyed True Believer fervor you encounter near urban universities, mostly because that's where the Scientologists and meth addicts are.

...Her proposed solutions are, as you might expect from a product of today's university Safe Spaces, callow, shallow, and jejune: we should vaccinate wild animals against diseases, and we should offer them birth control to prevent Malthusian consequences to their population (which will presumable come when we've locked up all the hunters, and got the predators all noshing on lentil gorp and singing Kumbayah with us).

She reminds us quite exactly of the customer that refused to listen to the vet who told her that her application of human fad diets (vegan, macrobiotic) to her cat was killing the poor animal, whose biology is built to break down and metabolize meat.

The Woman Making a Fortune Selling Blankets She Knits With Her Hands

If you've ever seen one of these thick, chunky wool blankets on Etsy or Pinterest, chances are it was made by 27-year-old Anna Marinenko.

Her Ohhio store on Etsy is extremely popular with 34,000 "admirers" - people who have favorited her shop. The store also has over 27,600 followers on Instagram and 12,600 followers on Facebook with fans all around the world.

Marinenko is from Kiev, Ukraine, and started knitting the blankets a year ago with her hands instead of knitting needles after she found a huge spool of merino wool.

Roving is just fiber (wool, silk, a blend, whatever) that is all going in the same direction. If you grab it with your hands about 18 inches apart and pull, even gently, it will just come apart. Spinning adds "twist" (literally twisting the fibers around each other) that prevents the fiber from pulling apart.

What she is making could be pulled apart easily and will also compress and mat (felt) over time so that it will be both fragile and unpleasantly lumpy but nothing like what it looks like in the photo.

63 I'm going to deviate from the orthodoxy here and say that the Republicans overplayed their hand by trying to impeach Bill over a "Lewinski"

Yes, he was a pig. Yes, any other leader of a prominent organization would have been forced to resign in disgrace.

But, instead of just ruining Bill's reputation, the Republicans created a nascent Constitutional crisis over a consensual bl^wjob from a woman past the age of majority, which ultimately played to Bill's advantage.

And to Obama's advantage, because the Congressional Republicans are loath to go near that Third Rail again.

Surely it must be of some comfort that women are actually getting what they want. It's unfortunate that they have such masochistic desires, but whose fault is that? This is how they feel after decades of being empowered and liberated, given total autonomy and freed of the patriarchy. Grab some before they're all gone, I say. This is no tragedy.

Yeah, I've done that, too. On a Honda Gold Wing, returning from a Thanksgiving trip from San Antonio, to Orlando and back.

Continuous storms from Orlando to about Lafayette, LA.... then blinding, whiteout fog from Lake Charles, LA, all the way through Houston to the far West side of the Houston area in Brookshire.

That would've been back in 1986, and the bike was an '83 Aspencade.

Not recommended as a ride for beginners, that. What, you ask.....the bike or the weather conditions? The correct answer of course, is "Yes".

104 63 I'm going to deviate from the orthodoxy here and say that the Republicans overplayed their hand by trying to impeach Bill over a "Lewinski"

Yes, he was a pig. Yes, any other leader of a prominent organization would have been forced to resign in disgrace.

But, instead of just ruining Bill's reputation, the Republicans created a nascent Constitutional crisis over a consensual bl^wjob from a woman past the age of majority, which ultimately played to Bill's advantage.

And to Obama's advantage, because the Congressional Republicans are loath to go near that Third Rail again.
Posted by: Ignoramus at December 30, 2015 11:19 PM (rs5De)


Simple power politics.

If you want to overthrow the King, make sure that you take down the King.

The GOP was never going to get the votes in the Senate to convict him and remove him from office, so they should have just censured him. All that going for impeachment did was fire up the Dem base in time for the 2000 election cycle, a cycle that the GOP should have won more easily.

158 Would you really want in a tactical situation a mechanical mule being run on a giant Li-On battery? And probably 1/4 of carrying capacity would be taken up with deployable ruggedized solar panels that cost more than a string of live mules.

I thought they were running fuel engines, no?

But, yes, if the mules were low power, low distance automated cargo carriers, why not? Build a million of them, press seek.

I never thought much of his song writing chops. Average at best. A great guitarist and a very good singer, yes. His best post drug addled/alcoholic days album was Journeyman. I don't think he wrote any of the songs though. I still enjoy listening to it.

The Army has been trying to come up with alternative energy solutions. One was solar panels for recharging the batteries that individual soldiers use for gear like radios, NVGs, etc. They went as far as field testing before someone realized that solar panels are 1) shiny and 2) don't work very well when said soldier is prioritizing cover and concealment.

On the other hand, they're still pressing forward with the "Squad Mission Support System," which is basically an overgrown, remote control John Deere Gator.

I have driven on tractionless ice, through blinding blizzards and torrential rain, in all kinds of conditions and traffic. But one of the most memorable terrific moments was

driving from Chicago back to Oklahoma, many years ago, in those rolling hills just east of St Louis,

the lightning, just lightning, coming so fast and continuously and in all directions, I actually gave up and exited, and took a nap on the back-on ramp for a while.

I didn't really think we'd get struck or anything. It was just ... overwhelming.

Wasn't too bad until I got close to Portland. I spun out twice, went off the freeway once and almost hit the median. Trout dale was solid ice and there was another semi jack knifed. The hour and a half drive took four hours. I took the next day off. And I used the experience to convince my boss to let me work from home.

I've driven through some awful stuff but that was the worst. If it's that icy, I want to stay home.

287 "The GOP was never going to get the votes in the Senate to convict him and remove him from office, so they should have just censured him. All that going for impeachment did was fire up the Dem base in time for the 2000 election cycle, a cycle that the GOP should have won more easily."

Right on.

Recall that as part of their "deal", when Bill came into office in January 2003, Hillary pushed him to be far more left than he wanted to be. When the public figured this out, the result in the 2004 midterms was that the Republicans took over Congress for the first time in forever, so that Newt could pressure Bill into acting like a moderate Republican on most things that mattered and Hillary was neutered. So we had comparatively good federal government from 2004 to 2008 until the Lewinsky affair started.

Then we had an impeachment proceeding over a Lewinsky. Newt wound up the biggest loser.

Meanwhile Obama has committed how many serious impeachable offenses? I was up to twenty and then lost count.

And for all you pinhead pedants who say it wasn't about the Lewinski but about Bill's perjury, bl6w me.

Ohh, there's even one of her in a "gun girl" shoot. She's dressed up like Laura Croft and carrying an AR, and a little soot smeared around to make her look grimy.

There are a couple of exceptions. Tribal land for one and a state that does not allow property tax on 100% disabled veterans or their widows/widowers. I pay no property tax here in Oklahoma for that reason. Of course, I would rather my husband had not died in screaming agony from Agent Orange for me to have that benefit or for us to have it while he was alive and suffering. I am also sales tax exempt and when people get snippy about it, I just look them in the eye and give them the screaming agony speech. I have not had to report a salesperson to their supervisor over it, but, I will.

Only problem with the Germans is they get a little TOO protective, and the next thing you know, they've knocked down the fence with the neighbor, evicted them, and taken over their house, to give themselves a protective "buffer" from the guy two houses over..... And then, sensing the neighbors might be up to something, they roll on them.

333 Property taxes on two places. Can't sell anything without going through probate. Can't get senior tax rate on the house as its in the late wife's name. The other property is in my name but we need to move there to get the reduced rate. Both places risk foreclosure every year. We just can't afford it. Only hope is to move to the ratty place and rent the house out. I don't know if it's going to happen this year. It was a very near thing last year.

Don't forget the trial balloon they floated called "Imputed Income".

That little scheme was a way to tax wealth. How they were going to do it was say 15 years ago you bought your house for 150K, your mortgage payment would be roughly $760 a month. Your next door neighbor just bought his home comparable to yours for $250K and his mortgage is $1270 per month. With imputed income, since you are paying $500 a month less than he is, that should be taxed as income, so the $6000 a year you don't pay in mortgage that your neighbor pays is now taxable income to you.

In the grand scheme, it was a way to tax homeowners while giving apartment dwellers a bonus.

Instead of doing them all at once and taking 4 years for the construction, they should expand them one at a time.

Posted by: Guy Mohawk
--------------------

How the citizenry ever allowed the levy of taxes on personal residential property escapes me. Like all such things, I expect that initially the tax was so low that it seemed harmless enough, like most taxes.

In the beginning here (back around 1900 or so) the tax was assessed based on a front-foot basis. That kind of makes sense, since that roughly corresponds to build/maintenance cost of streets/sidewalks/sewer/water. But somewhere in there, some asshole proposed basing the tax on property value. The is NO rational basis for that.

So what has happened is that a retired couple on a fixed income is faced with rising assessment because assholes from, say, California, are moving in and driving house values through the ceiling.

I repeat, just because a property has a particular value, there is NO reason to assume that the homeowner has the income/assets to pay a tax based on that value, or that the home/homeowner represents any particular burden on the jurisdiction.

Whether it's $25k or $250 that you owe...you still owe it. And the govt
can physically remove that property from your ownership if you don't pay
what you "owe".

In a perfect world, all taxes would pay for things that benefit the thing taxed. Property taxes would pay for the defense of the property, the roads to the property, the mechanisms of secure property transfer, and other things that benefit the property; gas taxes would go toward maintaining road surfaces, maintaining signage and safety standards, mitigating costs based on mileage; income taxes would pay for enforcement of wage-and-hour laws, employment discrimination enforcement, etc.

In such a world, it makes abundant sense that you should lose your real estate if you fail to pay real-estate taxes, because the viability of the roads to access your real estate and the system that defends your title to that real estate are funded by those taxes -- so why should you get to free-ride?

Unfortunately, the world we live in is not that world.

Look, we're wired - hard-wired (cue Beavis and Butthead laugh) - to find healthy and likely fecund female body-types more desirable than those that are otherwise.

The sooner we accept this and get on with our lives, and the sooner women accept this, the sooner we can all have gloriously reproductive intercourse and carry on our species smartly.

Lauren: Because I don't know how to do the youtube short link...

Well, underneath any YouTube video there's a "share" button which shows you the youtu.be short link, so it's reeeally complicated. ; )

...and...it doesn't matter?

I generally don't click some link knowing it's YouTube. As a rule I just download vids to avoid actually going to their pages. because then Google Spyware logs what they think I see. But (a) that's just me and (2) someone said on this topic this morning, "I was told there'd be no learning on this blog," so, never mind maybe.

Why? Because it's a really good video that takes the actual words from an abortionist in a way that is attention grabbing, thus highlighting what was actually said.

I had meant to say, what's my incentive, other than that it's from Lauren!! Don't know how that got lost.

And I did gather from subsequent comments what it was - my usual, if not always reliable, method of wait-and-see if it's something I'd want to watch.

And, despite your recommendation, it really isn't. At least, tonight. I've already had my fill of ugly for the day. Maybe tomorrow in the light of day.

And I love the "fitness model" stage, not so much the muscle girl stage. A little ab definition, and little muscle tone/definition is hot as hell, but not too much.

There's one good thing about the 'roids, though. The androgens give them a "male brain" as far as the sex goes, activating those circuits. They turn into horn dogs more like us.

And they make a certain little appendage grow. I was reading an interview with one of those Amazon talking about how that little "appendage" was all, well rubbing against the fabric, driving her crazy all the time, and she was just "me so horny".

So, if you could get that effect without them looking like Arnold Schwarzenegger, it would be all right. Maybe future genetic enginerring will solve that little problem.

413 There's a boot sequence that you set in the BIOS. You choose which drive goes first, like flash, CD, disk 0, disk 1. Most modern drives don't need to have jumpers set for a master so will boot according to that sequence in the BIOS.

That may be it. I remember someone explained to me something about this, and this was for the normal men's bodybuilding. Said they usually carry a pretty good bit of fat, but when they go into competition mode, they diet so to burn the fat off and get into sort of lean, but muscle stage. It takes some specialized work to do that right, IIRC.

As a species we are attracted to those with whom we can reproduce with, overall. Whether it be from "old enough to reproduce" to "couger on her last eggs", the biological urge is directed theretowards.

Some small numbers are attracted with those other individuals, animals, inanimate objects, for which reproduction is impossible. "Tis what 'tis.

cthulhu I have heard a lot about Raspberry Pi processors now
Are they as powerful as, say, an Intel or AMD processor?


Posted by: chemjeff at December 31, 2015 12:30 AM (uZNvH)


The Model 2B uses the Broadcom BCM2836. This contains a quad-core ARM
Cortex-a7 processor with floating point NEON, running at 900MHz,
and the same Videocore 4 GPU that is in the other models of Raspberry
Pi. It has 1G of RAM (shared with the GPU), four USB 2.0 connectors, and a 100-base-T network connector.

Is it as powerful as a modern Intel or AMD? No -- and, further: it won't be as powerful as either at the same clock speed, it won't be as powerful as either at the same clock speed with more memory, and it won't be as powerful as either with the same number of cores. But if you put it up against an older dual-core 566MHZ Intel with 4G memory....prepare to be surprised. Especially if you're running the Intel with some Microsoft bloatware compared to the Pi on Raspbian.

The most important difference with them is that they're part of an Erector set. They're so cheap that you can use them in obscenely inefficient ways -- I've got one that's working as a printserver driving two modern HP printers. It takes jobs from two separate networks and prints 'em. I don't know of a commercial product that will do that. Future plans would have the scanner in one of the printers be able to scan to either network -- I don't know of any commercial product that can do that.

Here is what I recall about how they got shredded. Yes they lost some fat, but mainly water in order to show the muscle striations. Problem was a lot of the guys used diuretics to do so. And they had to try and "peak" at just the right time or they looked flat or soft.

423 It's easier to boot into multiple OSes by partitioning a single drive because the boot loader gives you a menu, pick the partition and boot. Using different physical drives is going to have to be done in the BIOS. if you set it to boot from the thumb drive first, but dismount that drive, it will boot from the next drive in the boot sequence.

I guess you could run it from a live DVD and mount a physical drive but still not as easy as dealing with partitions. I hope that makes more sense. Too tired for tech support.

Question of the more computer minded members of the horde...



Got a laptop computer for Christmas. It has Win10 on a traditional
drive. I want to put in a flash drive with a flavor of Linux to be
installed on it.



Could I, hypothetically, just switch primary drives and
hypothetically boot regardless of the OS on that drive, or would the
BIOS, c. be tuned such that it would mess that up.



Aksing, in part, because I'd like to instal in addition a copy of
BDS on a separate drive as well as a copy of the latest HaikuOS on yet
another drive...

There is some new evil afoot called "UEFI BIOS" that I do not yet ken. Otherwise, swap the real drive for a flash drive, download and burn yourself a Live-CD of a distro on another comp (DON'T forget to compare SHA-256 hashes), boot off the live CD and install. Mint is totally friendly; Kali is totally paranoid; Debian is totally stable -- check distrowatch for more.

465 As an additional plug for Raspberry Pi -- let's say you wanted to build a little module so that your dog could enter it, the dog's embedded RFID chip would be scanned, and it would close the "behind" door and open the "ahead" door only if it was really your dog. You know -- so that it didn't have to wake you when it had to go, but didn't let in random wildlife




"Raspberry Pi Geek" magazine, issue 14, gives you a roadmap with a "proof-of-concept" demonstration. It doesn't tell you how to build it for a chihuahua, it doesn't tell you how to build it for a Great Dane, it doesn't tell you how to make it work for your cats....but you can build something useful and cool with a tiny cheap computer that could otherwise do spreadsheets and websurfing.



Does this need four cores and a G of RAM? Does this need 900 MHz? Hell, no....but it makes it comfy and soft to develop and debug.

Yeah, the documentary left a lot out. But I googled the case -- if you buy in to the assumption that the cops were planting evidence to avoid being depositioned and losing their $35 mill lawsuit for his 18 years in jail on a (proven) unjust conviction... well, everything is explainable.

Posted by: The BIOS Hat at December 31, 2015 01:37 AM (vBeA5)


If you have a "live CD" of Kali, it doesn't mount diddly-shit if you boot it in forensic mode. You can then mount a potentially compromised drive as read-only; pluck a potentially compromised file as "read-only, do not execute"; and put it in a "read-only [group forensic]" containment directory. You can then scan the crap out of it or pick it apart before deciding whether you want its data.

Kali is not for writing essays or making spreadsheets, or for leading any sort of normal life.

I can also recommend CentOS, if you want to be totally corporate. The defaults would make your IT staff happy, and it behaves in a very uniform way.

And I'm still looking forward to the day when I will be somewhere civilized, take a knee, and ask her to be my wife. It won't be in this depraved mess of a state, though.

Very good. Now, if you can tell me how you feel you can give advice like "kneel or move" while you yourself will not take your own advice, we may be onto something. After all, this was the original question.

Heh. You are outta outta gas and grasping at straws to avoid admitting your hypocricy.

And, you are taking the Chi variety low road to try and leave a mark. Unsurprisingly, you are doing this when you think you will receive no opposition.

If I might recommend a purchase in your near future -- you need a mirror.

I am openly subordinating my own good (and our own good) for the preference of another by staying in California. When it comes to "kneel or move", I am clearly kneeling. I don't consider it the best option for either of us, but until I can convince milady, I am staying with her. There is no hypocricy involved.

It grates on me every day, and I hate it, and I fear it may lead to catastrophe....but I remain here to be by her side. As I have been by her side through the decades.

I get that your relationship got solemnized and went foom quickly. I get that you have a kid and an ex. But that doesn't grant you hypocricy points against me.

Trying to change the subject, yet again.

I remain in California only because the fiancee isn't moving. There are many laws, regulations, taxes, policies, and odd economics that would favor us moving -- but we differ in our evaluation of how serious they are and when they are most adverse.....so we stay. This means, for the time being, I kneel.

I'll "confess" -- in the 20+ years we've been together, I've been married to the fiancee precisely none of them. But we're still together -- how many years has MWNP been together with his partner?

I have no idea where you're getting a "mini-me" -- but if you're going to claim that your years of actual marriage are superior to my years of relationship, it would seem that we should start with how many years we're talking about.

You think Gowdy's the only one, Vic? I'm sure you don't.

I'm willing to bet there are lots of Stealth Amnesty organisms in Congress. Including more than a few who style themselves Genuine America-First Conservatives. They use the same tactics employed during the Nukes-For-Iran, ChoomTrade and ChoomCare votes to polish their cred with the gullible public while keeping their pals -- and big donors -- happy.

A few "no" votes don't hurt the result, but make the gullible public think their favorite political hack is Standing Up For Something.

Well, since Teh Vicloaded up the morning news:

Today is the birthday of Barbara Apolonia Chalupiec, a Polish-born actress who achieved fame as silent star Pola Negri. Tempestuous, demanding and passionate, Negri was the embodiment of what people tend to think of when they hear the words "silent movie queen." She was one of the most popular actresses of the 1920s, rivaled only by Gloria Swanson,* and her affairs with leading men such as Charlie Chaplin and Rudolph Valentino cemented her reputation as a man-eating dominatrix.

She demanded - and got - a huge salary from Paramount, making her for a time, the richest woman in Hollywood save for Mary Pickford (who was more of a miser and had, at any rate, a family to support). She is said to have introduced the fad for painted red toenails** as well as for fur boots and turbans.

She "retired" in 1928, but had to return to films because of a husband who was gambling away all of her money. During the 1930s, she signed with the UFA studio in Germany (at this time controlled by Josef Goebbels), but fled for the US after the Germans invaded France. Signed by United Artists in 1943, the film Hi Diddle Diddle cast her in a secondary role as a tempestuous opera star (Negri had, in fact, a very accomplished singing voice), but found that after its release, all offers coming her way were simply rehashes of the Hi Diddle Diddle character. In 1945 she finally retired from show business altogether, dying in 1987.***

Here she is in a typically pensive mood:

And here's a link to her singing:

http://goo.gl/p7L5ZY


*later in life, Negri would be briefly considered for the role of Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard, but the part went to Swanson partially because of Negri's thick accent.


**her 2014 biography states that when a co-star first saw Negri's painted toes, he thought her feet were bleeding!

***though she would return one last time for the Hayley Mills film The Moon-Spinners in 1964.

May I suggest a $5.00 state tax on every movie ticket sold, just for starters.

I don't understand. She was intoxicated nonetheless, and at 35 knew or should have known about her condition. I'm diabetic, and I get a bit peeved when some other diabetic goes low on the freeway and causes an accident. You can feel yourself getting low, and have plenty of time to access the Lifesavers you should be keeping in the glove box. Or, you know, pull over.

618 @577- A woman in NY has evaded a DUI conviction because her body is a brewery.-Vic

This does not surprise me. I have always felt like people up north have evolved a gene that makes them immune to alcohol. People up there drink, they drink a lot. It's the only way they can stand to live there. This woman is from the Buffalo, NY area where ten feet of snow is nothing to them. They drink to survive. It starts with babies and mothers milk, then they start sipping daiquiris, you see little kids running around with forties. By the time they are adults they have developed "auto-brewery syndrome". Dr. Anup Kanodia says its a brand new disease and we're still trying to understand it. (she is from Ohio by-the-way) This would explain a lot. Why Hillary is a gin soaked old crone (being from Illinois), the Kennedys, How NYC elected their mayor, or Toronto, Canada for that matter. And how we got Obama. It's strange, if they got sober they may not be able to function, may not be able to drive a car or buy their groceries. Now California and the left coast is a whole other story, the cannabis gene.
