Overnight Open Thread (4 Mar 2016)

So can you guys detect what's missing in this article? Hacker Guccifer who leaked Bush paintings, racy Powell emails to be extradited to US. Now, maybe it's just me but Bush and Powell are yesterday's news. You would think a figure that is currently in the news, as in running for President, and is very relevant to this story would merit top billing no? Where the hell is the mention of Hillary Clinton? Guccifer is the reason why we even know Clinton had been using private email for government business.

Road Rage

I'm not buying into this idea of long-term driving causing violence. People prone to violence will do it regardless of circumstance.

Modern Pirates

Pretty slick. Pirates hack into shippign company's servers to identify booty before boarding the ship. While the crew goes and hide, the pirates board, find the specific container they're looking for, grab what they wanted and depart.

Kylo Ren In Classic Movies

John Wick II Preparation

Ahh, if only I could get paid to do this. Keanu Reeves tears up a training ground in practice for John Wick II.

Top 10 States For Retirement

For the life of me, I can't figure out why Virginia is in the top 10 states for retirement.

Moore's Law

What the end of Moore's Law means.

News Bloopers

That reporter at 2:10 has some discipline what with that snot running out of her nose and still rollin' cameras.

Counter UAS

The rise of counter UAS technology. This is a big concern for the military right now.

The SkyWall 100 looks cool, just not 'splodey enough for me.

NBA

How pron stars blackmail a ton of married NBA players.

"You would be shocked how many NBA players have been blackmailed in an effort to keep their privacy. My guess is a minimum of 25 percent of NBA players have dealt with blackmail at some point in their career," she continues. "I've heard girls brag about long-term hustles where they have a player paying their rent and expenses just to keep them quiet and out of their family life."

Oh I'm sure this happens in other pro sports too.

1012 Christy and Willow thinking of leaving?

I knew that the Hot Air refugees would bring a share of hard cases with them, happens in every refugee wave.

That said, I think it's time for Ace and the cobs to go on a serious banhammer spree.

I don't comment as much as I used to here because politics and news events were giving me fits of anger followed by bouts of gloom. Neither is a state to post in, but when I come around and see a few well loved and long time posters thinking of leaving, it's time for Ace to mercilessly enforce the "don't attack anyone personally rule"

I take that as just the way it is now, but friendships and family relationships aren't worth risking for people who only purely by coincidence occasionally do something to my benefit.

So, if we don't get caller ID that matches a whitelist, we never pick up the phone. I wonder whether people who might think this way are Obama fanbois.....

56 Road Rage. It's not the long term driving, it is the fifteen hour days dealing with arrogant, ignorant, stupid, dangerous, reckless, unaware, deranged, self important, self appointed superior, low skilled, belligerent, NASCA wannabees who learned how to drive by watching TV, the bullies who think they can push you out of the way, the @#$%&*^%$%^$#@ people you have to deal with on the road while short of sleep, under an impossible schedule, that if you are late costs you days/dollars, work, income, and home time that turns you into a homicidal maniac.

That and the Starbucks triple espresso tall grande thing with chocolate.


Look, seriously, as an experienced long haul trucker you get to the point where you can read people's minds. I've had incidents where I knew which of the cars in front of me were going to exit before the people driving those cars knew it was their exit.

You talk about 'body language', there is the same effect when people are driving, and you can see it in the way they drive. You know when the car pulls out in front of you that it will stop half a mile down the road and make a left turn.

Johnny Carson used to explain to friends that he always preferred to be married, although even he acknowledged he couldn't really be faithful, because it got the press off his back about who he was or wasn't dating. His final marriage pretty much only worked because she accepted the fact he'd sleep with anything with a pretty face and a vagina.

91 The problem with Moore's law article is that the author does not understand the "local peak" conceptual problem, where you have gone as high as you can and can't climb further.

A local peak is a technology that has been taken to the last inch of development. You probably have seen the Japanese pre-war air-warning system which was essentially an ear trumpet large enough to park a mini-van in, or the mobile Italian ones which were sounding surfaces that you wore like a hat. They used the best techniques to expand the available technology, which was the human ear. I expect they developed protocols based on the limitations of the technology . . . then radar was developed.

The solution to the local peak problem is to find another, taller peak to work at.

There are limits to both utility and to manufacturing as well as conceptual limits to what to put available tech to. It does not mean failure, it means the next group of bored and clever geeks have a niche to fill too.

93 From the drone story: "Other systems use radio frequency (RF) jamming technology to disable or seize control of the UAV's control systems. This capability removes the danger of a falling drone, but that type of jamming technology is legally problematic and can interfere with important civilian technologies - such as medical implants."


I'd say, not necessarily, in either case. Disrupt comms to a drone, its motors might shut down altogether, and down it comes. And if the disrupting signal has a tight, directed beam, no reason why it should adversely affect legitimate services.

A long-term girlfriend who stuck with them through the early years, so they figure that they owe it to them.

Or they really do want to remain faithful, but fail. When you're on the road constantly, dealing with the pressures of playing at the professional level, around your teammates and support staff who aren't... shall we say... the most likely to provide good moral encouragement.

113 I read at NASASpaceflight.com that the SES-9 satellite was delivered into a higher than expected orbit.

That is great news. Falcon 9 performed better than expected and tonight's launch was 100% successful. It delivered the satellite into a highly elliptical orbit and now the satellite will use its onboard thrusters to gradually circularize its orbit to geosynchronous and "park" itself over eastern Asia.

The first stage landing attempt on the barge failed, but as I pointed out in a comment on an earlier thread, in tonight's launch it had only a small chance of succeeding because they needed to get maximum performance out of the first stage, leaving little fuel for a landing attempt. But SpaceX was like, "Whatever. Let's try it anyway."

The MSM will play up the landing failure, but don't be fooled. The primary mission was to put their paying customer's satellite into orbit. Landing the first stage was strictly secondary. The customer doesn't care what happens to the first stage. Every other launch provider simply discards it into the ocean, or on the barren steppes of central Asia in the case of the Russians, or into rural villages in the case of the Chinese.

It is very cool that SpaceX is able to do research and development on operational missions, rather than having to do special launches to test their landing system.

The early evening light when I was driving home today was incredibly beautiful. The combination of the angle of the sun and dust in the air made every wrinkle and fold in the land stand out in stark relief.
The mountains seemed especially majestic and brooding.
I had to slow down for some deer. Even the hay bales seemed lit with some kind of magical light.

I found it all genuinely moving. Kind of a the grandeur of God shines like shook foil moment. Oddly enough it almost brought me to tears and made me forget all the crap that's going on.

OMG. Are you currently monitoring my life?

Had a conversation with a friend of mine. She's been very not herself for a long time, and I've had to distance myself. Well, she is going on vacation, and I called her for the first time in months. She wanted to know what was wrong. I didn't want to go into it, but she insisted.

So... I told her a mild version of things. It's a discussion we've had at least four other times.

The result? It's all my fault, I'm imagining things, she's not like that, I'm completely wrong about everything. I am intolerant, critical, demanding and angry.

My instinct was not to tell her the truth. And I was right. She didn't want to hear it.

I ended the conversation with "it's all my fault" and then when she emailed, ended up thanking her for pointing out my numerous, numerous faults and said I'd contact her after I've received extensive psychotherapy.

Posted by: shibumi who is awaiting SMOD at March 04, 2016 11:15 PM (7FH+T)

177 No, she hasn't. Cristy Blinky was threatening to do so, after having picked up her very own troll, but i think she has been talked down from the ledge. She might take a time out, though.

Yes. She did. The last comment from Willow.

Summers are a bit tough. Getting into a car that has been cooking in the sun is not fun. We are talking 140 degrees or hotter in the car. The metal seat belt buckle WILL burn you. If you don't have a cloth steering wheel cover, you can barely touch the steering wheel.
We pay a price, but compared to snow it is soooooo worth it.

247 I guess I'm in the minority but I'm thinking people are taking things more serious than necessary. It's the Internet for cripe's sake. Don't engage with people that attack you , unless of course you've got a killer witty come back. I do think it's different for women though. Guys are used to insulting the crap out of each other face to face, both serious and in fun. I don't think that's a pastime for women.

257 Top Ten States to retire.

After crunching data on factors such as cost of living, taxes, health care, weather, and well-being,

Seven of the top ten have absolutely brutal winter weather. Five have, in certain places, absolutely flatly nothing. Arizona is on the southern border. Arizona has places that are populated by high income families, and other places that are crime ridden ghettos.

A good retirement place is where you have family and community. That assumes your family is functional.

Crime rate was not one of the listed criterion.

Population density, crime, cost of living, and taxes are the deciding factors for me.

Labor Camps for anyone who says "literally" when there's no "figuratively" meaning.

For instance, I literally hate it when people do that when the term should be I REALLY hate it.

Strictly enforced, no exceptions. It would end up incarcerating 90 percent of Millenials though.

The "it's not you, it's me," is the signal that it's time to end the discussion. It always is. It simply means "you're not listening, you're attacking me, and I don't have the time or the energy for this any more."

In other related news, I had to speak with my insane ex-boss today in regards to a project he's working on. That was completely useless. I've had more informative conversations with my cat. I had to drag words out of him. It was painful, and I don't understand it, since, in the end, the conversation will benefit his company and not me in any way.

He/she/it is a treasure and I didn't want my own issues to take away from his work and the input of commenters - many of whom are masters at short form commentary.

One thing I noticed was that after Breitbart paid the commenter a high compliment, it seemed things started going over the top, and we forgot who the star of this show is. Remember, it is Ace who brings the best out in us. We should honor him for that. One way we can do that is by honoring each other.

439 Stirling Moss drove rallies in Oz until he was about 80. When Long Beach was a CART race, they got Fangio out there for practice one time in an early 50's Alfetta, in which the correct cornering technique was to broadslide under power with the wheels pre-selected for where you wanted to go coming out of the corner, then lean out of the cockpit with magnificent disregard for what direction you were headed, and watch the rate of overspin on the inside rear tire, to judge where to let off and regain traction...

Championship drivers who watched him said he could come back and win F1 whenever he wanted, and he was in his mid-70's at the time.

But, all such discussions end with Tazio Nuvolari.
Wasn't it Luigi Chinetti who said "When I was young, the drivers were fat and the tires were skinny"?

No danger of that here.

I said I'd raise taxes on men in tights. In Donna &&&& world, there would be big tax breaks for men in tuxes.

Last weekend, I saw a bunch of young guys in tuxedos and shades in a park - they were clearly part of a wedding party. (It was unseasonably warm here last Saturday.) And every last one of those puppies looked very fine to these middle-aged eyes.

I know guys don't like to wear them because they're not comfortable - tight at the neck and there's a bow tie (the only time a bow tie looks sharp instead of nerdy), but a well-fitted monkey suit has to be the second most flattering thing a male can possibly wear (the first being Marine dress blues). A baseball cap worn backwards can make a genius look like a dolt. A tux makes even plain men look dashing and sophisticated, especially when combined with sun glasses.

There - my paean to the classic tux, not the powder blue ones guys wore to prom in the 70's but the classic Gary Grant monkey suit. Amirite, 'ettes?

anyway, Uncle horse is going on an adventure tomorrow and is off to the trainer once more. But this is a special trainer who might be a forever home, if he works out, shes going to vet school and her husband is a farrier who has trimmed his feet ever since he got here. They are excited to make him part of their family.
The Butterscotch Gang on the back porch is still there, but they hang in the house and have a truce with the indoor cats. They like being house cats now. Niece Horse has gone back to San Diego with her mommy, but a different Niece has come to live with us, to be my new stallion's wife!

473 For generations, you can't use them strictly. For instance, Gen X is defined as being born in the early 60s to the late 70s.

There is a world of difference, culturally, wealth-wise, and probably politically between someone born in 1961 and someone born in the late 70s.

Alright for those who missed it in the "How the new Ghostbusters movie destroys the partriachy" thread, ChristBlinky wrote a long piece on how someone was socking her and being a general passive-aggressive pain in the ass. She then said she was leaving the blog. Many long time regulars asked her to say and advised taking a little time off due to the internecine warfare between those who like Trump and those who don't. She later came back and said that she would reconsider her position, but was going to take some time off from commenting here. Much later in the thread Willow mentioned that the rancor amongst many of the Horde as been getting to her and that she was going to take some time off until the election season was over.
Unrelated, I have noticed that Adam Baldwin is back on twitter. Kind of dissapointed in that. I liked his feed, but I thought it would be a pretty big blow to Twitter to lose him.
Nick Searcy on the other hand, completly deleted his account.

I'd say do your homework, and then some. Things are not going well in Germany, and you might not want to be there when they get ugly. And they will, if you're in small town with a very large number of "refugees" or if you're in a large town with a significant number of "refugees." As a a male, you might not be targeted, but you might be put in a position where any female you're with might.

If I remember correctly, there only place that didn't seem to be awash in "refugee" violence was the eastern border with Poland.

Also... remember that right now in Germany, it seems that "refugees" get a pass and if you are involved in any sort of incident with one of them, YOU will be held guilty and they will not.

Last weekend, I saw a bunch of young guys in tuxedos and shades in a park - they were clearly part of a wedding party. (It was unseasonably warm here last Saturday.) And every last one of those puppies looked very fine to these middle-aged eyes.

I know guys don't like to wear them because they're not comfortable - tight at the neck and there's a bow tie (the only time a bow tie looks sharp instead of nerdy), but a well-fitted monkey suit has to be the second most flattering thing a male can possibly wear (the first being Marine dress blues). A baseball cap worn backwards can make a genius look like a dolt. A tux makes even plain men look dashing and sophisticated, especially when combined with sun glasses.

There - my paean to the classic tux, not the powder blue ones guys wore to prom in the 70's but the classic Gary Grant monkey suit. Amirite, 'ettes?

I went to a formal wedding in Colombia a about 10 years with all the men in Tuxedos. That felt very classy. The biggest problem was letting the waiters know "agua, por favor" meant water, please, not whisky and water, please. I suppose it was God's will to get drunk that night.

I also attended a formal wedding in Scotland. If the formal tux felt very classy, the formal kilt felt very manly.

How are Uncle Horse and Niece Horse??? What

happened with that batch of kitties that was occupying part of your

house? Why haven't you been around?




Posted by: cthulhu at March 05, 2016 12:02 AM (EzgxV)

I was
just here last night or the night before! i thought you were ignoring
me! but it was very late, complaining about how even junior college out
here has become an indoctrination camp.

anyway, Uncle horse is
going on an adventure tomorrow and is off to the trainer once more. But
this is a special trainer who might be a forever home, if he works out,
shes going to vet school and her husband is a farrier who has trimmed
his feet ever since he got here. They are excited to make him part of
their family.
The Butterscotch Gang on the back porch is still there,
but they hang in the house and have a truce with the indoor cats. They
like being house cats now. Niece Horse has gone back to San Diego with
her mommy, but a different Niece has come to live with us, to be my new
stallion's wife! I am very excited. she will be my own horse. life here
is pretty good.


Posted by: Gushka can haz kittys what plays fetch! at March 05, 2016 12:13 AM (6ga6c)


I was probably zoning by the time you came by.


Did Uncle Horse get to take some kitties with him? Although I'm very happy he could have a new forever home with people who know how special he is, he might be lonely without a kitty or four.

Did Niece Horse take the goat with her? Or is the new niece also a goat-fancier?

Agreed. Truth be told, I find this election sort of entertaining, but when you get right down into the mud pit where people are fighting about I'm not sure what, it gets unpleasant. Fighting is fine when it has a point, but I can't find the point in those threads a lot of the time.

But the other thing is: never underestimate the effect on the community of the legion of trolls, disruptors, Mobies, and paid shills who descent on this place when the big election rolls around. They are not always easy to spot, but the anger you see in those threads is, in part, their spoor.

572 Hi ONT. I went to CPAC today. I'm tired. I'll try to write it up for tomorrow or Sunday.


As to the rancor, it's not going to last much longer. We're right smack in the heart of circular firing squad season, but it's going to end one way or t'other soon. Cruz just pushed his chips to the center and called all in by deciding to compete hard for Florida and to a lesser extent Ohio. This has driven the Rubio Fan Club nuts, because their last hope is pinned on schemes and unicorn dreams. When people start talking about increasingly narrow "paths to victory" it's over. I was at a Republican election night event last time, and when Romney's people started sounding like Karl Rove I knew that Mitt was done. I've actually muted some people on Twitter, and I never do that. I'll unmute them after the dust settles, I followed them because I generally like their tweets.

OTOH, Cruz doing this has reassured me that I made the right choice. You win by WINNING, lay down your cards and let the chips fall where they may. He sure killed at CPAC today.

But in any event, this is going to end soon, one way or the other. Either Trump skates on or Cruz melts him down. We'll be back to aiming at Hillary by May. Be of good cheer, you're all great Americans. This too shall pass.

I see some slumping doofus walking down the street, long hair, scruffy beard, slack stoner smile, knit cap, I swear I saw that guy in 1967, 1974, 1986... in Tulsa, in Santa Fe, in Little Rock, in Chicago... What gen is he? Yes.

My native family spanned the baby boomers from pre-boomer to tail-end, with my oldest sibling born before the war's end, my youngest sib born in 1958. But the boomers were a genuine thing, a big statistical bulge in post-war births, with a seriously monolithic culture, mostly. And that wasn't even all that solid, with the rockers not comprehending the boppers & vicy versy.

After that, there were just births every year, no bulge, and increasingly fracturing cultures. As far as I can tell. So the attempt to impose definitions seems like media marketing. Not that folks don't self-identify as this or that generation, but people self-ID as third-gender extraterrestrial furries, too - doesn't make it real.

Or am I just a grumpy old tail-end boomer tonight?

the heart of circular firing squad season, but it's going to end one
way or t'other soon. Cruz just pushed his chips to the center and called
all in by deciding to compete hard for Florida and to a lesser extent
Ohio. This has driven the Rubio Fan Club nuts, because their last hope
is pinned on schemes and unicorn dreams. When people start talking about
increasingly narrow "paths to victory" it's over. I was at a Republican
election night event last time, and when Romney's people started
sounding like Karl Rove I knew that Mitt was done. I've actually muted
some people on Twitter, and I never do that. I'll unmute them after the
dust settles, I followed them because I generally like their tweets.

OTOH,
Cruz doing this has reassured me that I made the right choice. You win
by WINNING, lay down your cards and let the chips fall where they may.
He sure killed at CPAC today.

But in any event, this is going to
end soon, one way or the other. Either Trump skates on or Cruz melts
him down. We'll be back to aiming at Hillary by May. Be of good cheer,
you're all great Americans. This too shall pass.

Though my data "sample" is limited (at least not comprehensive), think y'all are over-reacting more than a bit to the "daywalker" thread thinggy.

Sure, I've gotten to the point where I just skip certain comments - but actually more by regulars than by any new names/possible trolls/HotAir refugees.

Have no idea which particular fracas Christy and willow were reacting to, but Christy at least has been posting fairly regularly, with pretty funny comments, on the central topic of You-Know-Who, and I haven't seen any particular reactions to her.

And there have been many very good threads, with ace in the comments, and several times lately where the Horde has "brought it" in terms of humor in even contentious threads.

Glad we found it tonight instead of in the morning, when we would certainly have blamed the cat. Swept it up, but could still use a mopping. Tomorrow.

Lesson learned: don't load the silverware on the front.

Posted by: Tammy al-Thor at March 05, 2016 12:28 AM (bardA)

Oh, yeah. I got fitted a few years ago and found I had been wearing a cup size too small. I started buying the right sized bras and I immediately looked thinner.

Thanks for the tip, Caligirl. There is a Nordstorms not far from where I live - I'll keep an eye out.

One reason I liked being young in the '80's: the clothes were perfectly suited to my body shape, which was hourglass. Fairly tall,narrow shoulders (that sucks - I have trouble keeping the purse strap from sliding off , pretty small waist, bigger boobehs and hips to match. So those 80's shoulder pads and big belts flattered me (If not the '80's the 1950's and early 1900's would have been my era.) So did the long flowing skirts with riding boots. And I could carry off the big jewelry and hair.

The ONT is for people to mellow out and talk about things other than politics. We also tend to know each other and behave as friends.

Plenty of threads in the daytime for you to pound out LIBERTY with every stroke of your keys. Perhaps you should take the night off and find a thread with the amount of anger and vitriol more to your liking.

Think of the ONT as a neighborhood bar and at this point the bartender thinks you should call it a night and go home.

697 Gods of Egypt

TLR = Not as bad as I thought it would be.

CGI superfest throughout for sure, but decent acting, characters with comprehensible motivation, and a plot. Oh, and humor, even some self-referential stuff.

It's a Lord of the Rings fantasy version of ancient Egypt with maybe only a handful of real sets and/or backgrounds, but with a very deliberate, if not competent script.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (aka Game of Thrones 'Kingslayer') as Horus
Geoffrey Rush as Ra the Sun God
Gerard Butler as Set ( oh, he is a big ham in this )
Brenton Thwaites( ? I guess the heartthrob type wimmen folk are suppose to like) as Bek, the mortal character and protag

Pretty much all of the places on the new strip have "resort fees". They will advertise $40 a night, but the RF can be as much as $20-$30 a night extra.
I like the Four Queens (Fremont Experience) as they have no resort fees and it's not far from the new strip. Living in AZ, it's not that long a drive for me. YMMV.

I have no real qualms about Motel 6. Good that they all take pets. But if I were going for a mo-mee in Lost Wages, I would probably try to fly from PHX or Mesa, and put the doggeh in the kennel for a day or two. Six or more hours each way on the road, for a one-evening get-together is a lot of driving. I am not a gambler.

One.

All the typical ONT disrespectin' the daywalkers and such. If you haven't, you owe it to yourself to go check ace's debate scorecard thread. Funniest thing he's posted since I can remember. Can't even recall if I read the comments. Anyway. Get thee and read. (hint: you will then understand "flaming clown boners")


Two. Vegas accommodations.

Well obviously The Hat is the resource on this. All I can say is that I stayed on my only visit (last year) at the Marriott place across the street from Planet Hollywood, just off The Strip. It was fine. And airline friends say Southpoint is very nice.


Three. Though it makes me feel "worthless and weak!" (movie reference?), gotta love the WWII aviation geekery here. kdabear and Stringer Davis bringing it on P-51 powerplants.

Which reminds me. First Blue Angels show of the season, as always, is at El Centro a week from tomorrow. Always interesting non-US military static displays (British Apaches and crews, Dutch F-16s, Germans), you're closer to the flight line than most shows, and of course the tiny scale of the thing (drive in, park, walk 10 minutes - boom, there you are).

753 I am not too picky when it comes to hotel rooms. Clean is good, so is quiet. Would be nice to have some selection of eateries within walking distance, although for a one-nighter stay, that's not a big issue. Inexpensive is nice, too, but again, for a one-nighter, not so big an issue. Hundred bucks, one-twenty, for the room? OK for a one nighter, week, not so much.


Basically, I will accept whatever hotel the others settle on, I guess, unless it winds up being some 400-a-night deal.

759 BCochrana and flaming clow boner (really? - doff the sock, dude!), not to worry, YouTube has been my guide for many things, including 1911 assembly/disassembly.

Just decided to "wing it" this time, see if I remembered. I didn't. Thing is, I don't fully disassemble it often, so don't have that habitual familiarity. But I think it's incremental, after this time I'll be close to doing it without notes.

Oh, and don't ask about the $*#@(@#)!!! grip bushing thing. Thank god the threads in the frame are OK (got new bushings from Midway today, got one in cleanly). Now just have to separate the screw and the bushing in one grip panel. Grips are WWII Remington Rand surplus, want to keep using them.

Got lucky that the grip bushings stayed put.

Here's a question for you: are there still any casinos with slot machines that are really slot machines? As in, you feed in an actual coin of the realm, pull a lever, watch the drums spin, and maybe get a shower of said coin of the realm into the pay chute if three cherries line up?


I would much prefer to hear the merry tinkle of coins tumbling into a metal cup than endure the electronic beepity-boops and flashing lights of the modern video gambling terminals. Nor do I like the idea of having to go to a cashier to buy a "players club card" to feed the machines with. To me, the whole attraction of slot machines is the spontaneity. Walk by a bank of slots, feel some loose coins jingling in the pocket, shrugging, and saying to oneself,"Why not?" If you have to sign up for it, it's no longer fun, it's a job.

773 People who get upset by the pixels on a screen should really check their sanity.

First off: It's pixels on a screen.
It's not like whoever is being mean to you is physically present. And they can be ignored. Now if someone persists and begins stalking you with not even the hint of reason then I'm sure Ace or one of the cobs will perma-ban them.

Second: It's only words.
Are you that sensitive that someone's spite, apparent anger, disdain is really that hurtful to you?
If so then you should see a shrink cause I'm sure you have even more problems in your at home personal life that need to be addressed. And sure no one deserves to be harassed but is that what a couple of comments you don't like amount to?

Third: You can go elsewhere but there's no guarantee the same thing won't happen there.
You are not required to engage with anyone on the internet. You can ignore them. If they become obsessive then contact the cobs or Ace. No need to declare you're imminent departure. Otherwise it could become a weapon against others who did not mean what you thought they meant.

Fourth: Apply to your friends here.
Most folks here if asked and they see that you are being harassed will gladly begin to heap abuse on whoever is bothering you. And that is more effective and less bothersome than the other remedies. Let the community enforce their standards. But you have to ask and that asking shouldn't be in the form of threatening to leave because that is also a negative act.

Fifth: Have you told the person to leave you alone?
If you haven't then it's problematic to haul out the big guns on them. One warning should be sufficient then you can feel free to do whatever you wish. Too many times I've seen reactions to something said where no indication of upset preceded the threat to leave. They many not know they're getting to you. Yes some people are that insensitive.

I wish I had been here earlier to address this and I hope someone else brought some sanity to the mix.
We don't need people leaving but we also don't want this place to become a freedom from having your feelings hurt kind of place.

Toughen up. Unless someone's making outright threats or cursing at you, they deserve the benefit of the doubt by you telling them to bug off or just ignoring them. If that doesn't work then it's time to up the ante and retaliate.

Leaving won't help a damn thing including you the attacked.

Bitter Clinger, bringing the practical wisdom (as far I am concerned). Well said.

AOP, understand your nostalgia for coin slots. Though I only ever played one once, for about 5 minutes, in the Reno airport while waiting for a flight, in the late 90s.

But the visit last year (friend's birthday, group trip), we "played" at the Cosmopolitan, which was criticized earlier in this thread. I don't take issue with the criticism, we only spent time in the casino (and the restaurant). Actually, with the "player's club" or whatever, we got some amount of $$$ for the slots and a pretty good deal at the restaurant - where the food was outstanding. Better than Ruth's Chris, truth be told, the next night (nothing wrong with Ruth's, but the Cosmo casino restaurant food was superior).

Recent edumucational videos from YouTube that I've used: cracking eggs with one hand, carving a whole roasted chicken, establishing a .3-inch setback on the shoulder for 30-06 brass for the M1 Garand, using the new Lee Auto-Drum Powder Dispenser. And working my way through the entire set of "Wochenschau" newsreels the Nazis distributed for cinema viewing during the war.

Did the Youtube video thing for a CZ-75 basic cleaning. Figure I'll get
to cleaning the trigger mechanism sometime.....but I'm worried about
getting into the hammer side of things because there's stuff in there
like the sighting dovetails that I don't want to mess-up. I doubt the
local armorer has the resources that the factory used to set them.

Not too familiar with the CZ's. Damn my tiny hands. Have you
considered the gun cleaner you just spray in there? If you have not used
it, wear eye protection when you do. I had a blast hit me right in the
eye and it's worse than pepper spray

Santa Monica a bad area? Naw. Pretty big, so lots of variety. But don't know any "bad" parts, in my limited experience. Haven't spent much time there in years - mostly taking visitors to the 3rd St. Promenade. La Cabana at Rose and Lincoln (1) used to be a solid border-Mex, LA-quality place.

And with that, off to bag some zzzs so as to get up in time to empty 120-150 38sp cases in the manana. Hoping more Texas Stars and steels this time - last month was almost a pure ICORE (revolver competition assoc.) qualifier match, kinda boring.

838 Lessons learned the hard way.

Work over a clean floor.

Work on a surface that you can put barriers up so nothing rolls off onto the floor.

Always examine the part (or drawing) to see exactly what you're taking off has attached or inside.

Count your parts. Use egg crates to separate them and keep them from rolling away.

Find every exploded drawing and description of the item being repaired that you can find/afford.

Mark the parts and make diagrams where they go in case you can't put it back together right away. (the dread extra parts solution)

If possible, screw any screws back into their hole after removing parts to work on so you know exactly where they are and where they go.

Clean everything before you take it apart and before you put it back together. Oil and Grease are cheap.

Try to work under a roof. And with good lighting.

853 I have found that certain types of items, like decor and such things that change constantly, should be bought in excess.

Cause ten years from now when you go to find a replacement cause the original is broke, they don't make them anymore so now you have to replace all of them so they match.

I did that with some light fixtures with a glass globe. Glad I did.

855 Much "consternation was engendered" when the word went around about that hi-tek coconut oil. Put me to mind of some automotive lubricant debates.

What's surprising is just how well some antiquated or "organic" oils and lubes can work, in certain antiquated or organic applications. Fiske Brothers is a few blocks from me, and they make Lubri-Plate, which predates petroleum-based grease. Its original formula involved thick linseed reduction with animal fats pressed from city garbage, and several cities were paid for the privilege of having their garbage picked up for "rendering." What an enlightened society we used to live in.

I don't know when the formula was "improved" but I'm pretty sure the white lube was still non-petroleum in the early 60's, and my metal shop teacher swore (vividly, when he had to) that it was the best thing for "plate lube" where pressure but not high RPM's were the salient factor. Of course, a Bridgeport machine was still considered high-tech back then.

I have a lot of old knives. They get stored or sheathed in some places where you don't want a lot of solvents puddling around. Some of them have been well protected from rust by olive oil or vegetable oil. In their day, that's all there was.

OK, last thing. Buddy who retired from SEALS two years ago gave me a
bunch of FROG lube, which I haven't gotten to yet - I think they use it
a lot. FWIW, as they say on the intertubes.

Toot spent three years moving back to the Left from which he originated, it was when he finally went on a banning massacre that people finally realized that he'd gone all the way.

Toot isn't nuts, he's just not very bright and he was always a dick even when he was nominally on the "Right"

It's all about what you're using it for. Some guy went through a bunch
of gun lubes for corrosion resistance and Froglube came out very
well.....well, I got very excited because the conditions he tested
against (leave something sit for a couple of months, light it up and use
it) looked a lot like my expected usage on my mill. If I were going to
religiously limit the ways every day, I'd have used something else.



I'm currently shooting once a week....and I wouldn't use Froglube
for that application. I'm not quite using Mobil 1 or WD-40, yet.....

I'm not mocking. It kind of makes me laugh that coconut oil or
canola oil seems to work so well considering all the high dollar
synthetic stuff out there. My dad swore by carnuba wax for cars and
dismissed all the modern stuff.

Funny you mention the Mobil 1. I am actually considering using it to see how it does.

Things about Froglube -- (a) must apply to warm surfaces -- I put it in the oven at 175; (b) does not play well with others -- interacting with regular oil later gets sticky/gummy; (c) gets gummy when cold or left where it can react to moisture in the air; (d) does a decent job of protection when left in an unheated garage for three months during winter.

I have seen white grease, of unknown provenance, but presumably factory lube, and you which one I speak of, Stringer, used on the mechanism in hand-crank window regulators, which became hard and dry, and crumbly, like old clay. Zero lubricating properties whatever remained.


And with that, off to bed.

Errrrrr...it's worse than that. "Tactical Sport". It's a match pistol.
The good news is that I can use five-in-one targets at the maximum
distance at the range, so I save $4 for every 50 rounds I put through
it. I actually shoot like crap through the basic CZ-75 (though not
nearly as bad as with a Glock). [Second best, Kimber stainless 1911.]

Maybe I would do better with the latest gen of Glock, but I didn't do too good myself with the one I shot.

Posted by: Tilikum Armored Killer Assault Whale at March 05, 2016 02:32 AM (hVdx9)


I thought the Glocks I tried did well at putting lead downrange, but potential adversaries would have done well sheltering in front of the broad sides of barns. I can see why it's a favored police gun, with all the reports of hundreds of stray rounds.

In that case I'll stick with the Boob Wrangling assignment.

I was watching the setup for Kate Upton's weightless shoot and there's a clip of a "boob wrangler" making sure the puppies were properly fitted to the suit to keep the photoshoot from getting NSFW

878 I'm certain we'll pull through.

As for myself...I can't seem to gin up much interest in the primaries. I see all the anger from so many sides, and I'm just "meh". I suppose all my life events in the last 18 months contributes to that. I don't feel I have enough spare time to get mad about people who, to paraphrase kbdabear from upthread, don't really give a damn about me. I don't have the energy or interest to argue which candidate is better. I'd rather take that energy and use it to help friends and family.

And now, it's off to bed. Catch y'all later.
