Overnight Open Thread (27 Feb 2016)

While it defies U.S. government, Apple abides by China's orders.

"Virtually every foreign tech company doing business in China is going to have to make some concessions to the government, just as the price of entry," said Charlie Custer, a writer and expert on tech in China.

The end of the article cracked me up. Google has a high, moral standard?

Bodily Connections

10 crazy bodily connections.

Men whose index fingers are shorter than their ring fingers tend to have bigger penises, according to Korean research.

Work Requirements

I'm OK with this. Boss requires employees to be armed at work.

After employees get their concealed carry license, Lance Toland provides them with a pistol known as the Judge, WSB-TV reports. "Everybody has one of these in their drawer or on their person," he says. "I would not want to come into one of my facilities." Toland says the new rule was inspired by violent crime in Atlanta and the death of his uncle during a robbery four decades ago. "I have an issue with thugs," he tells the Journal-Constitution. "I want to make sure my family and my employees are protected."

Vertical Landing Jets In History

Hollywood Taxes

Hollywood fleecing taxpayers. Transformers 5 to blow up Detroit again. It's been pretty well established that film tax credits don't deliver to state economies what they cost to treasuries and taxpayers.

While we're talking about Hollywood, why do they need all of this protection for the Oscars if it is a gun free zone?

Sunday's Oscars at the Dolby Theatre in the heart of Hollywood not only will be swarming with hundreds of law enforcement officers, but there also will be SWAT team members with bulletproof vests and tactical gear, bomb-sniffing dogs and sophisticated surveillance equipment (both overt and covert).

Hey, give them the same security we have at public schools. It's not like the general public is going to be there. Just a bunch of spoiled rich folk that live in their own world, detached from reality.

Hackers

Our government probably shouldn't be running anything on the internet. Cyber hack got access to over 700,000 IRS accounts.

California Gas Price Jump

Glad I don't live there anymore. Gas prices to jump about 30 cents as refiners switch to the sringent summer blend.

Electric Vehicles

EVs will cost the same as gas-powered cars by 2025. Is that with or without government incentives?

In terms of the environmental implications, if a quarter of the vehicles on the road in 2040 are EVs, that will replace 13 million barrels per day of crude oil. However, it means 1,900TWh of electricity will be required, or about 8 percent of global electricity demand from last year.

The Democrats with their "Clean Power Plan" won't help out in this regard.

At Popehat, attorney Marc Randazza (who's an asshole superlib atheist attorney, but also someone who's vigorously defended the free speech and association rights of libertarians and conservatives) wrote about his experience attending a Republican caucus and a Democrat caucus, both in Nevada.

Long story short, he was openly threatened by union thugs at the Dem caucus, and found the Repub caucus members quite likeable and tolerant (despite making a bunch of ridiculous hateful jokes at the beginning of his piece).

I got something in my eye when she said "Of course I'll marry you, you big boobie!" And the wedding, and Carson's stuffiness hiding a heart of gold.

And the Ladies. I was read to kill Lady Mary. I knew she was going to spill the beans about Lady Edith's baby. Vindictive bitch. Yet I love here. And Edith, please let her be happy. Somehow.

This just embarrasses me to no end that I give such shits about about bunch of fictional Brit aristocrats.

The idea that the Koch brothers will run Romney if Rubio doesn't win Florida doesn't make any sense. By the time the Florida primary is over most of the primary races will have been run. If Trump has the majority of delegates at that point (and he may very well have) neither Prebius nor the Kock brothers can do anything about it.

Read that link via Drudge earlier, and it doesn't make sense to me either. I think they might have forgotten an obvious detail. The only chance would be running Romney as an independent. Talking heads have been saying for two months now that anyone going third party would need to do so by mid-to-late March 'cause of the filing deadlines and logistical requirements to get on all fifty ballots.

140 ITV is a good company, and British TV is great in that they don't tend to do open ended shows, they do stories that come to an end. So its not Cheers that goes on and on until it sucks so much it gets canceled, they do one season and if they have a story and ideas, they do another season.

192 Candidate must win delegates in at least 8 states to have their name nominated. They can change the rules mid game if they choose. And delegates are bound for the first vote only. Mitt wouldn't have to run. They just have to make sure there's no winner for that first vote.

Note, also, that delegates are not bound for any Vice-Presidential candidate.

199 @171: "Candidate must win delegates in at least 8 states to have their name nominated."

It was only five states going into the 2012 convention, but they changed the rules before first ballot, and bumped the requirement to eight. There were a whole bunch of delegates from Iowa and several other states who were gonna vote for Ron Paul despite being pledged to other candidates. The change kept him off the first ballot and avoided what could have been a very weird floor fight.

Haven't watched since the 2nd season; it just became too too, as they say.

The way to end it would be to have an episode that depicts their modern descendents and makes at least one or two of them hopeful, pro-Brit characters that stand in the face of the current idiocy coming down the tracks.

But, yes, probably too late now.

Nope. The current Rule 40 is for a candidate's name to be put into nomination, he must have won 8 states with a majority of the vote -- 50%+1.

That is subject to change at the rules committee meeting just before the convention, and committee/floor actions at the convention.

That majority rule is the killer. Very difficult to do outside of a two man race.

He get left wound up when my old spayed springer cross comes in and he won't leave her alone. She growls at him. He starts running fast back and forth across the room, bouncing off the furniture. And he just won't listen when he gets like this. When he thought I might be serious, we were finally able to get him to stop. Honestly we have made progress since we got him in July, but there is a reason his previous owner was so eager for us to take him.

Not doubt hoping for a VP nod.

There is one thing about which I do feel sympathy for Trump, and spoke about it on Twitter earlier today: How often does Trump encounter someone who isn't looking for a way to game him for something? I'm guessing it isn't often.

He is, seemingly, very loyal to those he surrounds himself with and some of them have been with him for decades. No wonder he keeps around those he can trust.

Heck, there was a townhall last week where even those asking questions were blatantly trying to game him for, for instance, a job.

It was gross.

307 The Daily Mail has a spread of Melania. It's from a couple days ago and it's probably scrolled down, but she was posing at Trump's little "country house" in Upstate NY (I think that's where it is).

We were talking about Downton Abbey. Well, that little country house looks like Downton Abbey and then some. Melania was posing in elegant dresses and even a swimsuit (one piece, but very leggy) by the pool in that little house.

The WH would be a dump compared to what she's used to. A damned dump.

And she'll put European royalty to shame in the fashion plate/elegance dept, if she wants too.

Remember how Moochelle looked next to some of those Euro royals? Well, Melania will be the opposite of that. She'll put them to shame.

Queen Letizia (Spain) is now known as having the hottest royal ass (and it is a sight to behold). Melania, decked out fully, will best that.

There is a rule that they are supposed to grow their own produce. They lie. They buy my stuff from our cooler and sell it as if they grow it. look for a refrigerated truck. Things sitting outside all day not cooled will not last long at your home. True story, I go to the fancy farmers market in Solvang. A vendor has one of my hats on and is selling lettuce. I look at his leaf lettuce, the butt of the lettuce is brown and trimmed(it's old). I comment on his hat, he tells me yeah this is caligirl farms produce. I say that's funny I'm mrs CaliGirl and I don't know you. He was embarrassed
I imagine some are honest and do a good job, others not so much. If they are going to lose their 5 acres of whatever they are selling, they may spray it and not follow label instructions.

434 Techincally a chef can be whomever a restaurant hires to be responsible for the menu and to tell the cooks what to do.

So you want to smirk because it's not a guild, that you don't need a government regulation to define the title?

In practice, no top cook will call him/herself "chef" without some training, some apprenticeship under a reknowned chef, and the respect of other chefs.

I dated a girl who was trained as a chef at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. There is a lot of science as well as art to being a true chef.

I think anyone who knows how to use a vice grip is allowed to call himself a mechanic, but everyone recognizes the difference between that and a master mechanic.

458 Do what I do. USDA Choice is about the mininum I can stand. Go online to some of the primo steak places and get some genuine USDA prime. It's about 2% of the beef produced and expensive as hell.

Do it rarely. I did that over Christmas. Spent $200+ on some USDA prime ribeyes. If eating were sex, that would be having a porn worthy blow out with Kate Upton and a couple of her friends. Four or moresome.

This is another economic effect that happens in hard times. The high end, paradoxically seeming, does well. The midrange gets killed. People save up to enjoy the best once in a while, and don't bother with the midrange.

What you have said about farmers markets has been true having lived in TX and now in CO. If you press any of the sellers in TX, they will admit they don't grow any of their stuff themselves and just buy it from farms. The people here are worse. They peddle organic vegetables bc healthy eating is so the rage and a few even admitted to me that they just buy it from someone else and label it organic whether it is or not bc they can charge twice the price.

I've been wondering the same. I know people can't afford 10 and 15 steaks anymore as standard diets. The beef section I is always untouched at my store. People opting for pork since it's not as bad as chicken and beef prices. You'd think all that waste would depress prices. It's almost like its on purpose to push people towards processed junk and fast food.

Yeah, I don't understand the requirement for vendors down here, but I'm almost sure some of them are just re-sellers.

I was looking to make a batch of sriracha style chili sauce, aka Rooster sauce.

But the supermarkets only carry red jalas at $7 /lbs, Chinese markets = undefined red peppers $4 /lbs, Jalisco market nearby = red jalas, but cheaper.

Oddly enough Whole Paycheck carries 'red cherry' peppers at only $4 /lbs. Last batch kind of worked alright.

The other thing I've noticed is they get around the whole certified organic thing by putting signs up that say no spray. What the hell does that mean I ask. These guys I don't trust. Think about it, if they are going to lose their whole crop, they are going to use a pesticide. It may not even be approved for the crop they use it on. Do they follow the rules for waiting to harvest until it's cleared? I'm not sure. Pesticides and fungicides are very expensive.

Hey MisHum. You are correct, corn prices have dropped a ton. I quit farming in 2012 and prices were pretty good, they've declinced a lot since tho I seldom watch them.

What few realize is the productivity of American farms and agribusiness. When I stared farming in 1980 our ave corn yield was 125 bu/acre.

My last yr of farming before it was sold was 2012, our ave yield was close to 200.

There was a poster many years ago, a regular here, who will go unnamed because he can't be...by blog rules. He was funny as hell, absolutely f'king hilarious, but also occasionally an asshole.

He got into a fight by making rude comments to a poster here, was semi-banned, then got drunk, started posting again, got into a fight with Ace where he actually posted his address and challenged people to come fight him in person, and then banned permanently.

It was a sad way to go. But he was a moron extraordinaire. I guess it had to be that way. He is still missed. At least by me.

Some kittehs-- most often those rescued off the street who were seriously underfed for awhile-- develop a kind of insecurity about cat food that leads them to beg for more when their kibble dish still has some food in it. It takes them awhile to trust that their food supply won't disappear again. The same kind of anxiety appears in some humans who have survived on starvation rations; I understand that there were concentration camp survivors who hoarded food in their bedrooms for months or even years after they were freed.

606 pretty much all the rest of the conservative blogs, with the exception of the giant ones like breitbart and hot air, have taken sides. the pro-trump blogs, if you criticize Trump, you are banned. at the anti-Trump blogs, if you praise Trump, you are banned. Shit is getting real and there is not going to be any healing after the nomination is finalized no matter who wins.

- is a leading cause of death of children under 3 years old?
- is a major environmental hazard owing to its ability to destroy natural habitat over the course of several decades?

He got into a fight by making rude comments to a poster here, was semi-banned, then got drunk, started posting again, got into a fight with Ace where he actually posted his address and challenged people to come fight him in person, and then banned permanently.
It was a sad way to go. But he was a moron extraordinaire. I guess it had to be that way. He is still missed. At least by me.

Limbaugh never gloated, as it were, but it took me a minute to figure out where he was coming from.

He was marveling at the fact that nobody else on the conservative end figured-out what Trump was doing. Trump didn't care what the media said about him. He dismissed it.

Limbaugh liked to laugh at Trump's audacity, as did I. ...at one time. Now I wonder why I swallowed the fly. -Perhaps I'll die.

Then again, we're developing things a generation or two ahead of 'em, no matter how good the stuff they roll out. We still just out develop them.

Addendum: Christoph! [spelling?]

As I recall after his first banning for calling a regular female commenter here a 'c#nt' in a sarcastic unapology over whatever they were arguing about, he was trolling a Christian female blogger who Ace had linked (maybe the Anchoress? but the lady whose blog has Roman Catholic devotional items in her sidebar anyway IIRC). This saw him ask Ace to let him back to the HQ when commenters from here commented in the lady's blog linked story.

So he was allowed to return but after a while he began trolling Christians here and was tossed after he began crapping on something political in America contrasted to how we had it right in Canada. I've forgotten the issue but that saw him banned the second time.

686 there were about 730k votes in Republican primary in SC, about 400k votes in Democrat primary in SC.

although that is a bit misleading since there are more Republicans than Democrats to start with in SC.

Thanks Jim. The SU-30 is pretty impressive as a joint role airship. I've also seen reports that China has now deployed stealth fighters. Just seems like we're letting that gap close pretty rapidly while still relying primarily on the 16, 18 and f-15. Pretty old systems, although they have been retrofitted.

I seriously see us getting into a shooting war with one of them in the next ten years. Even more so if Trump and Putin start Cold War II.

764 "I've had back surgery, am facing neck surgery now."

I got myself badly jacked up enough a couple of years ago that I had to go talk to an orthopedic surgeon. He told me that he would work on any bone or joint in the body *except* for neck and spine surgeries. He immediately referred all of those.

His considered medical opinion was that neck and spine surgery needed to be considered its own professional subspecialty, due to the inherent complexities, and performed by docs who do that and nothing else.

I've fortunately never had to avail myself of that advice, but I will certainly heed it if I ever need my neck or spine worked on. Well, unless Obamacare puts me on the Liverpool Care Pathway instead of sending me for surgery.

796 Cool story on the MiG. I interviewed with NASIC (I think they were called National Air Intelligence Agency at the time) back when I was finishing undergrad. By the time they got around to calling me back for a follow-up I'd already been working at my job for 5 months. it was a bit of a bummer because the work sounded fascinating, but the idea of changing jobs while the tech bubble was in the middle of bursting didn't seem like a solid decision...

On a related note, I saw Paul Allen's 29 in its hangar the other day about an hour after they finished flying it. Even crazier was it was sitting 150 feet from an An-124 contacted out to Boeing. Thought I'd made a wrong turn and ended up in Moscow...

Try sleeping somewhat upright in a recliner. That can sometimes take the pressure off, particularly off where the ribs meet the spine. It helped me, anyway, even if it made me snore and wake up a few times.

949 My first real internet discovery was Instapundit. Post 9/11 I was searching for something, I don't know what. I was instantly drawn to the studious work of him keeping his own ego in check, even as his traffic was making a new type of fame. The Dan Rather takedown was in 2004.

Before I found Ace of Spades HQ I battled with liberals regularly, on a smaller forum. It had every type of political animal, but skewed liberal. We all knew each other as far as personality, but most of us remained anonymous. At some point after 2008 the forum was brought down. Once I was out of my old habits, I felt like it was a waste of a LOT of time. Liberals have a reset button, after all. Whatever progress you make, they wake up in the morning deciding to be stupid and angry.

I found out just now that the forum had been revived. And all the old people came back with their old nicks and old avatars. And the same old BS. It's like they were frozen in amber. What did I miss? Nothing at all.

I avoided Insty for a few years after I first heard of him, just because of the name. I thought "instant punditry" was too glib, and that punditry in the Safire tradition required time and reflection.

So I didn't know that a basically like-minded libertarian was collecting gems from all over the web for me and feeding them in digest form.

Even in private, that's amazing - even in today's unrecognizable America.


So the other side's scandalous use of the nuclear option to pack a key appeals court with statist freaks is met with ..... a return to the normal state of affairs on appointments and cloture. And the other side's scandalous and unprecedented refusal to permit regular order in appropriations (making it 7 full budget cycles of CRs, astonishing) is met with .... silent submission.


And a lawless president barfing all over the Senate in every way from recess appointments to appropriations to coordination and information on use of military force is met with ..... lawsuits, limp-wristed letters, and inaction?

But a President Weasel-Hair is beyond the pale?

Cracked a rib once. "Treatment" consisted of .... waiting for it to heal. Soft tissue held everything in place, just had to sleep differently for a few weeks.

966 Instapundit effed up on me, used my name once when I specifically directed him not to do so. Unfortunate, as my digital profile is incredibly low for someone whose profile might have been substantial without effort to keep my name out of things.


Another tip to a Nat. Review guy (10 years ago, different place then) proved useful, topical, and he carefully kept my name out of it when he used it.


Wow, thinking about that one, another "different world" comparison. Prominent news media executive had to resign after making outrageous allegations that were baseless. A few people made sure his claims were known to be false.


Today I doubt even blatant wholesale slander and distortion of that sort would be more than a 2-day kerfuffle. Though Brian Williams did bite the dust.

969 I hear ya, weft, but everything I've read, and what folks have echoed here, is that there's really nothing to that can be done but wait for my body to heal.

I'd rather not bother with a doctor and get billed for being run through an x-ray machine just so they can tell me the same thing.

I figure if my injury was anything major, then I woulda noticed something by now. No surface bruising. No coughing up blood or pissing any out. No sharp pains when pushing on the affected areas. Just constant dull pains that seem like they wanna hang around for awhile. Could be much worse.

IIRC, Teh Horde did a great job of pre-diagnosis with Captain Whitebread some while back....

Nobody's doing definitive diagnoses -- not even the MDs among us -- but brainstorming and refining the lingo for descriptions are positive benefits available here. And when someone asks what it feels like to have bruised ribs, that's perfectly reasonable blog-talk.

Actually, Trump's inaccurate comments about Saddam and Qaddafi/Khaddafy/....... cited by Nordlinger are a *lot* more damning. Of course they'd be more "damning" if a huge chunk of the "conservative" and GOP elements (and just the general populace) in the country didn't essentially share those sorts of idiotic Code Pink misconceptions. We see variations on this idiocy right here in these comment sections ever time the topic arises.


Nordlinger. Funny he should come up. That's the NR guy I was referring to a few comments above.


You know all the rending of garments and agony and outrage and concern and alarm over Trump would have seemed a lot more sensible and relevant just a few years ago. It's like all those now dashing towards Marpi cliffs to jump and avoid the baby-eating US Marines missed the last 7 years (or even the last 10).

978 Walter - outrageously ironic coming from me, the original minimalist/self-diagnosing sort (but extremely healthy and more than normally medically literate, grew up in a medical household) - but no, go get it x-rayed and checked.


Even I have a few funny stories of going in to get something checked, being 90% sure I already knew the score, and having the doctor tell me what I thought already. Best time was when I took a hockey stick above the eyebrow in a freak accident (we always wore helmets w/cages, but snow storm/6 guys make it to the rink/we play some 3 on 3 scrimmage, w/out helmets).


On advice of the rink manager, who applied a butterfly bandage expertly, I stopped in at GW Hospital to see about stitches. Emergency room resident (hot blonde) comes out, looks me over, says yeah I need stitches.


I ask why. Uh, scarring, maybe infection. Hmm, no - it's right under the eyebrow (mine are Brezhnevesque), and it's been clean and I have surgical/antisceptic soap at home. She repeats here reasons. I smile, say thanks, and tell her I'll pass. She was not happy. But hot ..... (thinking back on it, at that time especially, I'm retroactively miffed at myself for not telling her I'd buy her dinner and give her a chance to sell me on stitches).

1017 I've been reading Diana West's blog. Damn, I love that woman.

Oh look, she has Part 8 up. I've read the whole series "The Post-Constitutional Election" and recommend it. I've also read her book "American Betrayal" and see the blurbs on the left sidebar.

"We're all eggs 'cause we're a little cracked..."

When I was Twenty-Five, if you'd have told me that I'd be on a
political site, spouting Libertarian/Conservative messages and saying
prayers for people, I'd have laughed you out of my parents' house or my
business.



Seeing as being King of the World didn't exactly work out? I'm good
with it. I'm trying to stay good with God and being a little cracked
helps.



As Gutfeld says... We are the "Counter-Culture", now. It is easy to "go-along to get-along". Doing The Right Thing is hard.



Never forget that and stay humble. Our "Freak-Flags" are Gadsden Flags that revile The Borg and celebrate the Individual.

1021 I have a very small index finger. Stand back! Now that we have that out of the way .... I found it interesting to note that the word "index" has been used 26 times (counting my stubby little index finger ... woops, I guess that makes 28 times now) in this thread. I think that is pretty much a record for a non-political, non-SMOD, non-Burn it down!, kind of topic. I love statistics. And, I love my index finger. 29

1028 If Mark fucking Ruffalo wins an Oscar I will hate him so fucking hard.

God I hate that prick.

Oh...the Oscars are today. I don't give a shit but Ruffalo is up for one and I despise him.

Mumbly douche sack.

1029 When people understand that I get my good-natured rebelliousness from Glenn Beck, they're gonna freak!

I'll pray for them and accept the skeptics. I am not a Mormon, but I understand Glenn's choice in religions.

It inspires him to spend more time with his Family.

As a Roman Catholic, I don't entirely "get it", but I rejoice his decision to find God and Jesus Christ.

His embrace of Capitalism and the Free-Market System is all-the-better.

As a thinking individual, I can take-and-leave what he says On-Air. His co-hosts temper him and I enjoy the banter.

He knows that he isn't a Prophet, even though some cast him in such a role; by taking things out of context, at times. Some of the criticism is spot-on, because he cries more than I do.

But... I've gotten watery eyes after an episode of "Restaurant Impossible", so there's that.

1037 What the hell are our allies, the India folks, doing working with the snot-brained nationalist Russians on that T-50 (the Sukhoi PAK FA)?! Which side of the bread is buttered with those guys! That's a nasty little airplane they are building. Are they contemplating a problem with the Paks. Not likely. So do they intend to start some shit with the Chinese. Oh, mercy. I mean, I don't have ANY problem with them becoming a world power (like they aren't already!) but, damn boys, work with the non-crazy folks why dontcha. Barack probably told them to go f* themselves.

But amid a growing wave of anti-Muslim sentiment in the U.S., including numerous acts of violence directed against Muslim Americans

Uh, any chance this is Muslim on Muslim style murder and 'Americans' had nothing to do with it?

Nah, let Obama smear white racist nativist Americans and label all of us Christians as white supremacists because it will advance Obama's effort to destroy the country. Then, if the facts don't support the narrative, bury the story.

Insty has a link to thehill.com where ex-cia chief (Hayden) says the agency would refuse to obey Trump as commander.





If Trump does nothing more the expose the insanity we are living with right now, he has done a service to the country. Just a damn shame it is probably too little, and too late.

Sorry. My rant was a result of reading that entire Mig-29 article. At the end of that they mentioned the T-50, so I went surfing. I read some wiki and some actual news about it and let my blood pressure spike. ha!
