RIP: Abe Vigoda (For Reals This Time)

Well we all knew that it had to happen some day. But truthfully I kinda hoped he would just keep going on and on forever and that the joke would never end.

How Long Has Abe Vigoda Been Mostly Dead? 

Since 1982 at least when People magazine referred to him as the 'late' Abe Vigoda. Which was a bit odd since Barney Miller was still being filmed at that point.

Here's a skit from David Letterman in 1988 where they have some fun with the late Abe Vigoda whose career didn't seem to be affected by his death.

Kurt Schlichter's Advice: Buy Ammo

Well no one ever died from having too much and it's not like it'll go bad in under 20 years anyway. As an old family friend used to say the two best things to have in a depression are ammo and liquor. They're high in value but physically small. And either you'll need them yourself or someone else will need them so bad they'll pay you top dollar for them.

Europe Commits to Buying U.S. Shale Gas

European gas prices are cheap today, so much so that the price imperative for liquifying, shipping, and regassifying U.S. shale gas is looking like less of an attractive proposition than it once was. But many European buyers have already committed to paying that premium for a steady energy supply that doesn't come with the kinds of strings Russia likes to attach.

Not satisfied with hosting segregated retreats to push "Social Justice" and how everything #problematic is caused by eeevil White people, Race-mongering Leftists in Oregon have decided to even more overtly condemn White people and "Whiteness" are nothing more than inequality and oppression incarnate.

-----------------------------
"Fox News and Google have invited three YouTube personalities to ask questions at the Jan. 28 GOP debate - including a Muslim advocate who describes Donald Trump as a bigot and who visually portrayed him as being in agreement with national socialist Adolf Hitler."

"We have a presidential candidate whose loudest message reeks of hatred and Islamophobia... turning on the news now is scary, and oftentimes, humiliating," the Muslim woman, Nabela Noor, says in a December YouTube video.

She admits to becoming a Muslim political activist amid the growing criticism of Islam's doctrines. "The current social environment for Muslims today is not safe or just... as a Muslim American, I felt like I needed to use my voice," she claimed.

62 Good Heavens, what do you gotta do to get an ONT!

Well, I've been way drinking, but I wanted to get some prayers going for one of the horde. I can't name names because I don't have permission to do so.

But you've seen her posts all the time, and now that I've said "her" you can STOP masturbating. Please. Yes, you too.

There are a lot of behind the scenes dramas here at the Horde, and while I am the worst person ever to (shudder) get close to humanity, still I get affected. And I am asking for prayers for NAME REDACTED because she is in a very dark place and I am unable to help at all. So, please send your prayers to NAME REDACTED.

Thank you. And stop masturbating to NAME REDACTED because you are guessing wrong.

It's weird to say, but the Horde deserves our support. I can't say more.

Well, I can say thank you. And I can say STOP MASTURBATING but I think that won't fly here.

Thanks. (PS Sorry to everyone I've had too much to drink.)

this could happen to you in many jurisdictions in the US.

I think Connecticut and New York (City).

And knives. They love to confiscate those little pen knives. They'll act like they pulled out a scimitar or something.

Lots of stupid laws about having items to defend oneself.

there's a movement afoot to make anything you can use to defend yourself an "arm" as in the right to bear arms.

If women can abort their babies then I have a right to self defense. Cause of emanations and penumbras of my right to privacy. The state has no right to not allow me to defend myself in any way I choose.

221 I wouldn't get too damn cocky about the Chinese tech front. Last time I looked into it, there were two gear-cutters in the country that could make submarine drive gears for our submarines, and they were both made in Switzerland.

I have a ball-drive Paxton supercharger. It took them years to get the balls all the same size. Had to import ball bearings from some plant we'd bombed flat in Germany to keep the drive discs from burning out.

It was so hard for European and US makers to get ball point pen balls right, they were introduced to the market several times and just about written off.

You knock that off now.

(actually I have Lorem Ipsum as the header of my emails now, in 2 point font and in white text on white, ever since I realized the first two lines of my email appear in the Notify pop-up of Outlook of the recipient's desktop.

I do this is for three reasons:

A) half-assed sense of security, I don't want stuff just popping up uncontrolled
2) If I bury the sort of sensitive stuff down three lines the chances are that my recipients won't read that far
III) I am waiting for someone to ask me how I make Lorem Ipsum appear every freaking time and never show in the email.

Apparently no-one cares.)

262 "Qiu Zhiming, chief executive of Beifa Group Co. Ltd., China's leading stationery manufacturer, said the reason it is so difficult to produce that component is that the ball - which is usually made of brass, steel or tungsten carbide and kept in place by a socket at the tip of the ball pen - is so tiny (usually not more than 0.1 millimeter in diameter) that it requires state-of-the-art machinery and cutting-edge computerized measurement equipment with pinpoint precision to produce, not to mention the ability to produce the high-quality steel material of which it is made. The margin for inaccuracy in the production process of this tiny ball point is basically zero, or else it won't be able to be fitted into the socket perfectly and rotate freely in order to deliver ink."


I call BS. Ballpoint pens have been around since circa 1950, long before computerized measurement/manufacturing came on the scene. People were able to deliver consistent quality in tiny parts without those crutches. Computer-aided machinery just makes it easier.

280 Screw it, it's not like anyone's waiting with baited breath. :-)

Okay everyone, I tried to take your dieting advice to heart from last night and put it in action today. So here's what I've eaten today thus far:

Breakfast: Jimmy Dean hot sausage patties with some Tabasco, and water to drink.

Snack: banana.

Lunch: went ahead and splurged on a Chick-Fil-A spicy deluxe chicken sandwich and a large sweet tea, no ice.

...re my mid-afternoon snack, I stopped at BevMo to look for the Fever Tree Elderberry tonic water zombie recommended to help with my soda cravings. I didn't find any, but went ahead and got a bottle of Bundaberg Ginger Beer, and a bottle of Fever Tree's ginger beer. So I guess my snack was the bottle of FT, which was tasty and a bit lower in calories than ordinary soda.

Dinner: a Lean Cuisine four-cheese pizza; tasty but small, and half a package of Chili's stuffed jalapenos with some ranch dressing. To drink, I finished the FT ginger beer.

And that's where I am today. I may have a snack of one or two granola bars later tonight.

So, what did I do right? Do wrong?

"We have a presidential candidate whose loudest message reeks of hatred and Islamophobia... turning on the news now is scary, and oftentimes, humiliating," the Muslim woman, Nabela Noor, says in a December YouTube video.

She admits to becoming a Muslim political activist amid the growing criticism of Islam's doctrines. "The current social environment for Muslims today is not safe or just... as a Muslim American, I felt like I needed to use my voice," she claimed.

How long is too long to store ammo.

Seriously.

I've been using those little moisture keeper outers in each sealed box so that should help right?


Posted by: Bitter Clinger and All That


Stop being cheap and buy mil surp ammo cans, enough to store what you have and a few more because you're going to buy more ammo.

I still have .22 I bought in the 90's that shoots just like the day I bought it.
All my ammo goes into a can with a silica desiccant pack and a moisture indicator. Mark the outside with whats inside and you're good to go.

Twenty years ago I was shooting WW1 and WW2 .303 Brit surplus ammo.

On the other hand, if you have a Czech SHE-52 and want to try using the 1950's 7.62x45 ammo, you will find the primers have decayed and they don't go bang.
there are a number of things that will make ammo go bad, damp conditions is one of them and the early rustfree primers are the other.
Military primers are supposed to last nearly forever, and most US primers are made to milspec, as far as I can tell.

If that's an improvement, that's a start. But that's still a ton of sugar and other garbage. Biggest things I see are
1) no home cooked meals. When you buy fresh and cook yourself, you've got 100% control of what goes into the dish. Packaged or pre made stuff is fine for convenience, but shouldn't be a first option
2) the drinks. A large sweet tea and a few sodas is gonna be more sugar than you consume in a week. Water, tea, or club soda with a lemon or lime.


If you're serious about changing the way you eat, look into a Whole 30 or something similar. You've got to break a lot of years of bad habits, doing it without a plan is to set yourself up to fail.

318 They give Ambien to try to stop false labor. With my oldest my water had broken at 22 weeks so I was on hospital bedrest til he was born 7 weeks later.

Anyway, I had several false starts to labor, but on the night I actually delivered they gave me an ambien and a cocktail of other drugs to try to stop labor.

It didn't work, so I had to have an emergency c-section.

Somehow I lost about 6 hours of time that night. I heard him cry when he was born, and then passed out. Apparently I needed a blood transfusion.

I woke up several hours later, not knowing if he was alive, and my husband told me "well, he's alive and doing pretty well but there's something I need to tell you. He has a birth defect."

Then I passed out again. I finally woke up and found out that the birth defect was cosmetic and treatable with surgery, but yeah. Not exactly a fun birth story.

Snack: banana.

Lunch: went ahead and splurged on a Chick-Fil-A spicy deluxe chicken sandwich and a large sweet tea, no ice.

...re my mid-afternoon snack, I stopped at BevMo to look for the Fever Tree Elderberry tonic water zombie recommended to help with my soda cravings. I didn't find any, but went ahead and got a bottle of Bundaberg Ginger Beer, and a bottle of Fever Tree's ginger beer. So I guess my snack was the bottle of FT, which was tasty and a bit lower in calories than ordinary soda.

Dinner: a Lean Cuisine four-cheese pizza; tasty but small, and half a package of Chili's stuffed jalapenos with some ranch dressing. To drink, I finished the FT ginger beer.

And that's where I am today. I may have a snack of one or two granola bars later tonight.

356 Qdpsteve, one thing that has helped me lose weight is to back way off on the carbs and increase fat intake. Puts me in ketosis, which reduces my cravings. This also signals my body to burn fat stores for fuel. I lost 15 lbs of fat and gained 7 lbs of muscle that way. I feel great on that diet plan.

One way I bring on ketosis and reduce caloric intake is to fast (water only) for about 36 hours every week (after dinner Sunday to breakfast Tuesday). I'm hungry from Monday afternoon till I go to bed, but Tuesday morning I'm not hungry anymore. I eat breakfast anyway. I've earned it.

Nice. And another big step (that you're working on) is soda. The only time I can drink soda is if I have spaghetti/pizza or buttered popcorn watching a movie. And I usually don't even finish a can. I don't like the sugar coated feeling it leaves in my mouth.

But the main thing....you may fail some days. Don't let it discourage you.

363 Lost 30lbs in 1 year. Still have 30 to go.

Did it by limiting calories. Didn't plan any meals.

2x4 spiral pad
left column the item -
right column column calories
one page per day
keep a mental running tab

Then you adjust intake to the daily calorie total. You decide what you want to eat and how much by conforming intake to your maximum daily allowable calories. Eat to the pad.

For me it was 1500 calories, 1800 was an accepted mulligan. You can eat more calories of protein than carbohydrates with less gain.

Peanuts, lots of peanuts.

That's a common sign of depression. I've been there and it's tough because depression leads to poor sleep and poor sleep worsens depression.

I'll keep you in my regular prayers. In the meantime, you might check with a doctor -- trazodone is a mild antidepressant and helps you sleep. There are some good natural alternatives as well. B6 is especially good, as is magnesium.

373 qdpsteve, you've probably already found that you'll be walking the line between the low-fat crowd and the low-carb crowd, so whatever you do is Wrong. That's the fun of diet-sharing, I guess. In the daily columns and on-line specialty groups, they bet a bad case of Gell-Mann, with the autolinked lead articles saying "Government Diet Standards Exposed As Hoax" and the next article being on "How to Follow Those Diet Standards." Every damn day.

Bananas are high carbohydrate. The bun or bread on just one sandwich, regardless of the freshness or healthfulness of the sandwich contents, is more than you should have in a day, everyday. A lot of fruits are high-sugar, just like nature intended, and their juices are concentrates of that even if no sugar is added. Diet tonic is zero sugar, zero carb, but requires gin or something to make it taste good.

You can play with your palate to see how much non-sugar you can gag. I can't stand most artificial sweeteners; finally got to where Equal is palatable in tea IF I add one any-spiced tea bag to the one green and one black I use to make 2 quarts. I can take a 10-cal cola and pour 7/8 of a glass, just topped off with real actual sugar cola, and the medicine taste goes away. Rum or bourbon helps.

If you get used to reading the carbohydrate part of the nutrition labels (take reading glasses), you'll get some real surprises. A lot of non "diet" items are OK for carb content, but some traditional healthy foods are right off the scale.

377 Is that a variable speed drive, or straight a multiplier? I never realized that Paxtons had that. Also, is it one for aftermarket use, or off of a Stude?

Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at January 26, 2016 11:45 PM (OLNwX)


To expand upon Stringer's answer: the planetary ball drive is a fixed-ratio device, and is essentially the same in the McCullogh VS-57 supercharger as it is in the Paxton SN-60 and later models. The variable-speed drive in the VS-57 was obtained by a variable-sheave Vee pulley, and a spring-loaded idler. Alla sameee snowmobile transmission.


I have a rebuilt SN-60 on the shelf. Waiting....


They originally used Type A ATF, which is no longer a standard. Dexron II or III is now the preferred replacement, and adding a little Justice Brothers ATF conditioner has been recommended by some authorities. There is (was) also a product called Santotrac, which is a fluid made specifically for friction drives, which had thixotropic properties, like Silly Putty, and under extreme pressure, say between the balls and races, behaved as a solid, and elsewhere behaved as a fluid. Supposedly vastly improved the margin of safety in the drive. No personal experience.


The go-to guru for Paxton/McCullogh superchargers is a gentleman by the name of John Erb.

379 "Have you had the grilled chicken at CFA?"

Yeah I get it quite a bit. I usually get it in nugget form because it's easiest to eat, but sometimes I get the grilled chicken delux with two pieces of lettuce as the "bun".

Actually I can tell you the "fast food diet" my husband did because he used to be on the road (literally driving all the damn place) all the time. He lost 60 pounds. Also I'll put some of my suggestions for avoiding bread/carbs.

Whataburger :


Double Whataburger Jr w/ bacon and jalapenos, small fry, and a unsweetened tea or coke zero.

Or, if you are avoiding carbs:

The grilled Monterrey Chicken combo w/out a bun.

Chick fil a

Grilled Chicken Nugget Meal w/ diet lemonade or Arnold Plamer.

Grilled Chicken Delux on lettuce.

Substitute fries for fruit cup.

Taco Bell

Cantina bowl.

Iced tea/diet drink

Taco Cabana

3 Street Taco combo w/ iced tea or diet soda

McDonald's

I think he just got a couple of quarter pounders when he did McDonalds. Sorry, don't have the best advice there. It's also one place I rarely eat at so I don't have any tips either.

386 My insomnia (and muscle tone ) improved dramatically when my Dr. gave me testosterone gel (Testim). I use about 1/6 as much as he recommended. It takes me about two months to use a tube which is a man's one-day supply. The downside is that I have to buy a man's one-month supply at a time (30 tubes) and it costs around $500. But this could theoretically last me five years!

Before bed, I put one drop on my inner arm or leg and rub it in with the other arm or leg. As a bonus, I have more energy and drive the next day.

Screw it, it's not like anyone's waiting with baited breath. :-)



Okay everyone, I tried to take your dieting advice to heart from
last night and put it in action today. So here's what I've eaten today
thus far:



Breakfast: Jimmy Dean hot sausage patties with some Tabasco, and water to drink.



Snack: banana.



Lunch: went ahead and splurged on a Chick-Fil-A spicy deluxe chicken sandwich and a large sweet tea, no ice.



...re my mid-afternoon snack, I stopped at BevMo to look for the
Fever Tree Elderberry tonic water zombie recommended to help with my
soda cravings. I didn't find any, but went ahead and got a bottle of
Bundaberg Ginger Beer, and a bottle of Fever Tree's ginger beer. So I
guess my snack was the bottle of FT, which was tasty and a bit lower in
calories than ordinary soda.



Dinner: a Lean Cuisine four-cheese pizza; tasty but small, and half a
package of Chili's stuffed jalapenos with some ranch dressing. To
drink, I finished the FT ginger beer.



And that's where I am today. I may have a snack of one or two granola bars later tonight.



So, what did I do right? Do wrong?





Posted by: qdpsteve at January 26, 2016 11:54 PM (ntObR)


Well, if I had eaten that, I would say that I was doing ok up to the sweet tea, where I should have had unsweetened. Unfortunately, the bun on the Hate-chicken sandwich would blow my refined carbs budget for the day, and I'd be feeling really bad about the two ginger beers afterward -- you can't get more glycemic-indexed than sugar pre-dissolved in water. The crust on the pizza gets added into the previous carb splurge....but stuffed jalepenos in ranch dressing should be fine for taking the edge off. Granola is more carbs, but at least has some fiber to buffer them -- but, overnight, you'll still wake up hungry. If you make yourself a small cheese omelet, instead, you probably won't.

Karl Denninger has a couple of nice writeups on it, but -- essentially -- there are fast calories (sugar, starches [did you know that starches are converted to sugars by your saliva in the process of chewing?]) and slow calories (proteins and fats). Your body can run itself off of either, but will always go to the fast ones first. When you eat the fast ones, your blood sugar will spike and excess calories in the bloodstream will be converted to body fat; if you switch to slow ones, your body will run off the stuff you're digesting first before it starts working on body fat.

Note that this is exactly opposite to government and academia recommended for the last few decades until very recently -- they were all about "no-fat this" and "low-fat that" and "carbo loading for performance". Fast carbs cause a quick high and a fast crash -- you feel the need to eat all the time. One of the things that got me was when I used to complain, "I can't have eggs for breakfast -- they make me feel bloated so that I have no desire for lunch." And, slowly it dawned on me......200 calories of eggs in the morning make me want to skip 600 calories of lunch at noon.....and this is problematic, how? Alternatively, I could have 300 calories of waffles for breakfast and be starving at noon.....

405 (I made a comment on a dead thread earlier today that got completely willowed, in response to someone posting that one-paragraph misspelled "essay" that earned someone an A- in an African-American Studies class at Chapel Hill.

I now take the liberty of reposting the comment here) :

--------------------------------------------------------

I confess that in my early days I was one of those awful people who wrote PhD theses for unqualified students. I did it for the cash, sadly.

The worst one, which still haunts me, happened when I was hired by a woman in the dance department getting her PhD, and she wanted me to "edit" her thesis.

Not only was it beyond illiterate, requiring a 100% total rewrite that left not a single word intact but the topic of the thesis was outrageous bullshit:

Some tribe in Africa had a neo-traditional dance, developed in the 19th century, in which they attempted to replicate British military regalia and uniforms, and the tribespeople would then march back and forth singing an out-of-tune version of "God Save the Queen" with misheard phonetic "lyrics." The thesis stated that in the past, racist anthropologists described the tribal dance as being simply an "imitation" of a British military tattoo, but that this analysis was incorrect; in reality, she claimed, the tribespeople were "making a devastating commentary on colonialism" by "mocking" the "white devils" blah blah blah.

However, when rewriting this thesis, I could find no evidence to support her claim. So when I returned the edited version to her, I included a note asking where the supporting evidence was, which one think might be a crucial element to a PhD thesis.

Her reply? That there was no physical evidence for her theory, it was "just something I thought up."

And yes, she got the degree, and is now a professor.

This in fact was one of my "turning points" in my shift away from leftism.

408 qdpsteve, I feel for you if you're giving up bread, potatoes and rice. When I did I ended up with a feeling that there's an element of habituation there: they are filling, but also accelerate your next hunger. If you count carbs, you quickly find you can eat so much more meat, vegetables and greens that emptiness is not an issue. And once you arrive at a count you can get along with (it goes down pretty fast), you can allow yourself a little something now and then without feeling you're in jail.

Posted by: Stringer Davis at January 27, 2016 12:37 AM (xq1UY)

409 Qdpsteve, one way I enjoy a lower-carb hamburger or sandwich is to take the bun off of the non-dressed side. Using a lettuce leaf for the top of the sandwich works as well.

I also do pretty well if I only consume carbs before noon. I tend to get a little reflux if I eat carbs later in the day. I think the carbs feed some gas-producing gut bacteria that may be over-represented in my digestive tract.

Whew! TMI, sorry! Hope this over-sharing helps someone!

This brings to mind a scince fiction story I once read in an anthology, called, IIRC, "The Ten Billion Names of God". Some computer wizard is hired by the monks of a monastery in Tibet to build a system to collate and compile all the names of God, which they believed was a necessary prelude to bringing on the millenium as they saw it. So the machine is built, and turned on, and starts clicking out names. Tech goes outside, looks up, and watches the stars go out...

Speaking of dance. I am apparently a very sheltered person. My kids all take dance at a studio run by a Mormon lady so the costumes and choreography are very modest.

This is, apparently, far outside the norm. I came across an article today talking about how we need to stop with the racy outfits and dance moves from 7 year olds and they linked to a horrifying video of 7 year old girls dancing to All The Single Ladies.

So, now I know that I'm never letting my kids go to a dance competition ever. And we'll be sticking with classical ballet.

Kudos for going on the elderberry hunt (sorry - I guess it hasn't hit the stores yet), but overall my comment is: While you diet is not bad, it seems to have too much prepackaged prepared food.

I surmise you are a. male and b. living alone, so I sympathize with the innate resistance to home-cooking meals from scratch. But if I were to make one recommendation, that's what it is: Spend the hours to buy the raw ingredients and then make home-cooked recipes. It hardly even matters what the recipes are -- if it's home-cooked, it's better for you.

428 zombie: Interesting story re the PhD thesis.

I actually have a kind of similar story. A paralegal I worked with years ago, and who considered herself a conservative, was finally going to take the bar exam and was up to the essay section, where I believe you have to dissect and justify a court decision.

I don't recall if said 'court decision' was an actual one or an imaginary one, but I guess it doesn't matter because anyway, my friend had no idea how to dissect and justify. So what did she do? She MADE UP a few court cases, then cited and applied them as precedent for the cases.

Oh, and she passed her bar exam. She's now an attorney in Northern California.

441 As a designer who works in manufacturing and as a consumer, I agree with the basic thrust of this article which is that Chinese materials, engineers, technicians and abilities will limit it's ability to produce high quality, desirable goods. The Chinese appear to be rather apt at benchmarking (ie: measuring existing products to reproduce them at lower quality and cost, without any regard to patents or intellectual property rights as their culture does not recognize those concepts) they seem woefully inadequate at developing and producing new innovative products. Example: Modern diamond cut headlamps for automobiles. The aftermarket is full of China produced replacement parts for these items which arrive crystal clear and bright as ever but which refuse to throw any discernible pattern with which to aid you in your night time travel.

We have cans of Coke out in the fridge -- 140 calories per.....and does it fill you up? Does it make you feel full? On the contrary -- you get filled-by the burger you eat with it, the coke just gives you a sugar-boost and crashes.....which makes you hungry even though you are still digesting your burger.

457 I'm a thin guy, so maybe I should share my typical daily routine, in case it helps someone...

Breakfast: Skip it.

Lunch: Typically some sort of "quick-service" meal. Must include some sort of meat. Today I had a "regular" (meaning: large) Steak Stroganoff at Noodles Co.

Dinner: Usually a six-pack of beer, with maybe a bomber added on for good measure.

Sometimes I'll cut out the booze for maybe a couple of weeks, and then I find myself getting a little hungry at night, due to having cut myself off from my primary source of calories. That's when I'll have one of those microwaved "shelf dinners" in the evening to curb that hunger. Just one minute in the microwave for a whole nine ounces of food.

Yeah, you know what? Forget I said anything; there are worse things than being fat.

458 Meljoulwan.com has a lot of the Well Fed recipes. (She wrote it). I am not a cook but I am getting better. My late husband enjoyed cooking, so he always did it. I am getting better at it.

The system in Well Fed is to partially cook veggies and precook meat, then make mayo based sauce to bring it together. There are other dishes that work for a weekend meal. I learned a lot about spices from her and she does some ethnic dishes that are good. There's so much stuff on Paleo now, but it does make it easier to try it out. But don't think of it as depriving yourself. It's about taking care of yourself. It's worth the time to make a good meal for yourself. If you can roast a chicken or cook some ground beef, you can easily put together quick meals for an entire week. Learn how to make Scotch eggs and have a quick high protein breakfast.

I'm calling it quits for the night. Hope everyone has a good nights sleep.

Posted by: Adriane the Pop Culture Critic ...


Interesting that you two bring up Aquaman.

I only realized recently, long long after the fact, pondering it in retrospect, that Aquaman reruns played an important role in my personality development, for it was those reruns which first introduced me to the concept of ironic fandom, which by now is one of the major components of contemporary culture (i.e. "liking something ironically because it's so bad").

Like all little kids, I grew up liking or disliking things with completely naive sincerity. That natural way all kids are.

But at some point when I was about 9 or 10 some local channel started showing Aquaman cartoon reruns. My God, they were so bad, and the animation so primitive, that the normal sincere reaction would be to hate the show and thus not watch it.

But something clicked in my 10-year-old brain and I found myself hooked on these Aquaman reruns, enjoying them immensely precisely because they were so ridiculous and atrociously produced, animated and scripted. Often, instead of 24 frames a second like true animation, there was one frame per three seconds, almost like a slow-motion slide show. And they'd show the same scene over and over and over, with different dialogue, and the viewers weren't supposed to notice.

I didn't realize it at the time, but at that moment I became a "grownup" -- not the good kind, but the snarky asshole kind of grownup who only "enjoys" things he can mock, and irony replaces sincerity.

Put a little slaw on top, mmm mmm good!


Brown a pound of stew beef in some bacon fat, chuck the browned stew beef in the crock pot on low with a couple of large cans of Veg-All large cut mixed veggies (don't drain them) and a package of brown gravy mix, stir well, go to bed. Get up, eat beef stew.


Pound of chunked venison, cup of white vinegar, cup of apple cider vinegar, quarter cup of brown sugar, tablespoon of crushed red pepper flakes, tablespoon of TryMe Tiger Sauce. Put the venison in the crock pot and combine the other ingredients, pour it over the venison. Turn it on low and go to bed. Get up, eat the best venison you've ever had.


Crock pots FTW!

I haven't really found that to be the case personally, and haven't really noticed a difference between when I order a non-sweetened iced tea vs a soda. But then, I don't really have a sweet-tooth and have had excellent blood-sugar levels. Sometimes, though, I crave a carb-loaded drink like a cola or Gatorade, and it satisfies my hunger and thirst perfectly fine.

When you eat, and digest, your blood sugar goes up. Insulin rides in to save the day by stashing that blood sugar as fat stores -- if it doesn't, you piss the calories out, which is a classic sign of diabetes (sugar in the urine). One sign of pre-diabetes is insulin resistance -- the insulin is emitted, but the blood sugar is not converted to fat stores.

If you don't spike the sugar levels in the first place, you usually don't get insulin problems (IIRC, BC the Mick is type I, so he'd have insulin problems regardless).

Lucas products were not always inferior. They were built with the expectation that, in time, they would need service, and were made in such a way that the service was (relatively) easy to perform. And this design philosophy continued long after their competitors had upgraded the durability of "throwaway" components to the point they outlasted the "serviceable" Lucas ones.


And lazy-ass British auto-workers unions got involved...


Look at the voltage regulator on, say, a 1954 Morris Minor ( I owned one.) Beautiful black Bakelite case, held on the base by a wire bail. Case was inscribed with a wiring diagram, and terminal pinout, and other pertinent data. The terminals were sockets with compression screws to lock down on the wires inserted therein. Beautifully made, and quite obsolete. If they quit working, you could overhaul them, and put them back into service. And mechanics, and, to a lesser extent, car owners were expected to know how to service it. An owner, or driver, was expected to be involved in such routine service.


And I will bet you that HRH Queen Elizabeth II could still overhaul a Lucas regulator, if she put her mind to it.

549 I have had two implant teeth done by a dentist in Los Algodones, Mexico, just across the line from Yuma, AZ. Cost about $1200, but I am given to understand its gone up to about $1400 now. First visit: CT scan to ensure there is enough bone to support the implant, then drill a hole for the socket, screw socket in place, insert place-holder stud, sew up gum, and you go home for 6 months, to alllow bone to grow around socket and anchor it in place. Next trip, 2 visits, to install post, meausre and take molds for crown, then install and trim manufactured crown. Overall: much less pain and discomfort than root canal. YMMV

552 I bought a Mercedes-Benz Weldtmeister once, and when I went to work on it, found Lucas electrics, Zenith carburetters, and Girling brakes. Some master race.

Back in the Woolf Barnato days, the British were so far ahead of everyone else, apparently they just figured they could coast for a while. There were itty-bitty Austin engines in the early 30's, tuned of course within an inch of their life, that were turning out pretty close to 1 HP per cc, a standard only achieved outside F1 in the last decade. Reading the history of some of the performance marques, you get the feeling that they invented and patented stuff (desmo Norton, 1926?) just to put it on the shelf. I wonder where Detroit came up with their R and D habits?

Lord Beaulieu used to tell a story about meeting Tony Lago and complaining that whenever he drove his Talbot-Lago through town, it boiled over. Lago's response was, "Well, if you insist upon abusing the car..."

And I mention that because of the Lucas TriConsul switch assembly. It was a clever and compact thing, combination light switch, high-beam "dipper," and horn button. But its base plate was a composite like Masonite, and after it had been drenched in the rain a few times, would warp to where the contacts did not meet any more. And we showed one to a Lucas tech rep, complaining bitterly that it certainly must rain in England, too. He said, "I've never seen this. It worked fine when we tested it on the bench." Tell me you've never seen that in IT today.

Ain't that the truth! Beautifully engineered, carefully assembled,
but poor choice of materials. Had a gay friend who was a great car guy
(AIDS got him); he had an Alfa Romeo Montreal. Lovely, lovely car. DOHC
V8, 5 speed. And the electric window lift motors were made of some
crappy zinc alloy that made Zamac look like Monel in terms of
durability. It's not exclusively a British disease.

Sadness for the loss of your friend. AIDS got so many tragically too soon.

My "it never did that on the bench" was with a 1979 Ford Mustang variable venturi carb. Had a needle valve in the throat of the carb that varied gas input along with the width of the throat. Tolerances in the microns. Worked fine in the lab on research-grade gasoline; not so much when the needle was repeatedly lacquered with non-research-grade contaminants in service-station gas....

561 Montreal was on my drool list for a couple of decades. As my income increased, so did their auction value. I have a friend who engineers for FCA who plans on offing one of his (ug-ly!) V.Exner Dodges to obtain one. I may still get a drive.

I have found a curiously soft material in the window regulators of some Benzes. Looks as if they intended part of the crank to act as a babbitted key, and did not predict the side-stresses it would absorb over time. Imagine that, a German making a mistake.

We used to have a bitter joke, that if you had bought a new Mercedes and a new Chevrolet in 1965, and given them both the maintenance schedule demanded by Benz, in 30 years you would have one fine Chevrolet indeed.

If you're a rifle shooter (and you ought to be, if you're here), you can get into it with a modest investment. Try the Lee collet dies to reform your case necks. Play with powder charges, bullet weights (depending on the length, or speed, of your barrel's rifling), powder type, primer type, until you hit that "sweet spot".

595 In good news from the college front, Georgia edition:

Finally, someone in government, which funds these (mental) institutions of higher learning, is hitting the right note vis-a-vis the less than kangaroo court nature of due process now running rampant on college campuses. This updated Cultural Revolution by campus Red Guards is so egregious because Truth is not only NOT a defense -- it is ignored. This pushback against the forces of fundamental transformation needs to continue to grow. It is The Republic's last and only hope before the bloodshed that these Marxist cretins seek to unleash will occur.

Georgia legislator: Adopt due process protections or forget about your budget


A Georgia legislator responsible for appropriating state funds to colleges and universities is threatening to halt budget discussions with his state's schools unless they adopt basic due process protections for accused students.

State Rep. Earl Ehrhart, chairman of the Appropriations subcommittee on Higher Education, told college presidents in no uncertain terms to adopt such protections.

"You think you've got an issue with federal bureaucrats threatening your federal funds?" Ehrhart said at the close of a hearing on due process. "This committee controls your funds, Mr. President, and I want to see a clear statement from all of you -- beyond what the (Board of) Regents is requiring -- before I'm even going to have a conversation with you about your budgets, presidents."

Ehrhart said he wouldn't even talk to college presidents until they adopt "simple, basic due process protections."

"If you don't protect the students of this state with due process, don't come looking for money," Ehrhart added.

This is the clearest declaration by any legislator in the country regarding the protection of due process rights for students accused of misconduct on college campuses. The hearing on Monday focused on two cases at Georgia Tech, one involving accusations of racism and the other involving an accusation of sexual misconduct.

In the racism charge, a student accused members of a fraternity of hurling racial insults at her. Jonathan Hawkins, the fraternity's attorney, testified that Georgia Tech investigators ignored evidence that showed the incident could not have occurred, including surveillance video showing the accuser walking past the fraternity without incident, and witnesses who were there that day and saw nothing. Given the lack of evidence, and because Georgia Tech couldn't identify any individuals responsible, they punished the entire fraternity.

The mother of the student accused of sexual misconduct also spoke. She told a story of her son helping a drunk woman home when she had lost her key. The accused student let the woman wait at his apartment until her roommate returned home to let her in, so that the woman wouldn't be alone outside in the cold. Sometime later, another young woman accused the student of holding the alleged victim against her will, despite text messages from the drunk woman thanking the accused student for his help.

The text messages were not allowed as evidence in the hearing. Even the alleged victim didn't even believe she was the victim of anything. Yet on the word of a third party, the accused student was suspended.

Such accusations and kangaroo trials are becoming increasingly common on college campuses and illustrate the dire need for due process protections. Rep. Ehrhart is taking a giant step forward in threatening to pull funding from colleges that don't protect their students.
