Overnight Open Thread (14 May 2016)

Sex and State Power - What's behind Obama's transgender push.

Disgrace

This will make your blood boil. Iran tortured this Marine and the State Department pushed his family to stay quiet. It's more important to maintain this BS "agreement" on some fantasy nuclear deal and pretend Obama has some kind of lasting legacy for world peace than look out for your fellow American. Kinda like Benghazi. Better to have dead Americans than worry about political ramifications.

Plane Paint

Nice. Throughout the Air Force, painted planes make a quiet comeback.

Space Exploration

Here are the limits of humanity's space exploration.

Scaling up from there, the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies, along with about 50 dwarf galaxies, belong to our 'local group', which spans roughly 10 million light-years. Our local group is just one out of hundreds of other groups that make up the Laniakea Supercluster, which, in turn, is just a tiny part of the observable Universe.

Now that we know where we stand spatially, let's assume that humanity's future rockets will meet a science fiction level of interstellar travel. With all of these advances, how far from Earth could we possibly get?

Sadly, not that far. In fact, humanity will only ever get to explore the local group.

Medical Costs

Looks like we'll all end up paying for sex change operations. Obamacare regulation pressures insurers to cover sex change operations.

Electric Cars

Probably a sound decision just based on historical electricity reliability. LA cops aren't ready to switch to Teslas.

PSA

Guys, don't do this. Man gets his junk stuck in a wench wrench.

"We use a tiny angle grinder that's air operated and use measuring tape to protect the skin and slowly zip away at it while keeping water running on it so it doesn’t get too hot."

12 With Obama's military funds sequestered, which the GOP agreed with, we probably can't do the elephant walk thing again unless we use tow motors to drag the no longer airworthy airframes down the runway.

Wouldn't that be a display of air power.


I always wondered if those military May Day parades truck mounted ballistic missiles were mock ups and not real rockets.

16 There's a bunch of Tesla charging stations around here (Massachusetts). I'm particularly amused by the ones at taxpayer-funded facilities, like the Boston T station parking garages. Always nice to see the fares and taxes of the little people going to make the lives of their betters easier. I'm sure the Tesla drivers appreciate it.

20 Hey everybody.

Well dang it, I love the chess threads. But I can't seem to get a Texas Hold'em thread, so I'll try to start one here. Okay, here goes:

Pre-flop, you hold a King of hearts and a King of diamonds. Your opponent holds a 7 and 8, both of spades.

The flop is Queen of spades, 10 of spades, 9 of clubs. Who's more likely to win once the turn and river cards are on the board?

39 Why you need to rebel, in some way:

The Obama school-transgender ruling is just the foot in the door. Many schools will get around it by redesignating a bathroom or two as unisex. Problem solved, right?

Well, sure...but in some places, in a decade or two, and probably sooner, we might have this: after lunch, where do you think the more aggressive SJW-run schools will have the first graders lined up outside of for their potty break before returning to the classroom? "It's okay kids, you can all go inside this one. Together." The reasoning will be that that will be the only way to allow the 7-year old transgender kid to go to the bathroom without ostracism. With any parent objecting being banned from school grounds, or other some such.

Why? So that like they do with so many things, that in a generation they will have grown a crop of voters willing to do their will.

I know I sound like a John Bircher here, so I am going to remind you of the "sex education" in Huxley's Brave New World, which is turning out to be incredibly prescient. And of course, the Progs own recent history. To put it crudely--there are simply some progs out there who want to make us all lesbians (or bi). Period. Not allow lesbians to be lesbians--but to make it the preferred brand, to eliminate notions of traditional manliness and feminity as practical exemplars of what to be.

Maybe society needs to change, maybe it doesn't, but it needs to be society having the conversation, and no more of this stealth indoctrination garbage and culture change by judicial or bureaucratic fiat. No more of a minority of a population trying to make the majority kowtow.

If you want to be dictated to on certain core identities of *your own being* by people who might not be all that "with it" themselves (eg. Lena Dunham), do nothing. If you don't, do *something*. Rebel. Somehow. Tell them not only do the people get dealt a hand at the table of "what is society going to be", they actually run the card game--and that that is all there is to it.

If you look at the possibilities of just getting 1 of the 2 coming cards to go your way, then you get this:
1: KK hand improves with another K (2/45) or J of not-spades (3/45)
2: 78 hand improves with any spade (9/45) or any 6 (4/45)

The chances of getting both cards to go your way look remote, plus I'm lazy, so I'll take the 78 hand.

70 "Looks like we'll all end up paying for sex change operations. Obamacare regulation pressures insurers to cover sex change operations."

IIRC, most trannies don't even go through the process of the sex change surgery anyway. The insurance companies will probably cover them because even after people "transition", nearly 50% of people still commit suicide (meaning no more health care costs).

Notice all the social stuff liberals change, with claims that it's not going to affect "you" at all, end up costing people money and other things?

Oh well, it'll all end in tears and chaos anyway. Might as well proceed.

On the A-10, let's dispense with the shark's teeth, and paint it up in a true Warthog motif, with special attention to accentuate the porcine attributes thereof.

And then let's heavily advertise that we're using pork-lubed depleted Porconium 238 rounds, which are of course, haram.

Call signs should be such as "Hogwallow One", "Mudbath Lead" "Porkbelly" and the like.

Roll out a new Hellfire variant, but call it the Hogfire.

Rig some CBU units to deploy vast quantity of recognizable slaughterhouse surplus, such as pigs ears, noses, hooves.

Then, let 'em run Hog Wild over the battlefield.

74 Can also understand about "real money."

I usually play $40 no-limit hold'em, it's enough money to feel real but not so much that I get too intimidated. I also play $100 NLHE from time to time but have found myself outmanuevered there too many times and too scared to put my whole stack in.

The one time I played at the $300 no-limit table was a disaster. I learned the hard way, nobody cares about your $200 all-in when the average player stack size is over $800.

I'm maxed and cant accumulate any more. Every month I give back 4 days of time I can't cash in on. I just booked an alone trip to Vegas. Old dude in house has ruled with an iron fist for 20 years and I always had to get approval. to even go see my parents. This time I just went ahead and did it. Crazy thing is he didn't even react. I guess I maybe shocked him so much he didn't know what to say.

There's also a guy around the corner that owns a Volt. I've seen it in his driveway when I walk the dog.

There's also a couple of Lamborghini's in the neighborhood (somewhere), that only come out in the spring and disappear in the fall.

And a guy down the street (the other way) has a Ferrari 308. He lives in a modest house, so all his money must be in the car.

But that's nothing. My sister lives in Naples, Florida (God's waiting room), and that town is FULL of rich old folks with really expensive cars.

You problem is a closer case than I first realized, since I also have to account for the possibility that neither hand will improve, which would go to the Kings. Plus I initially counted the 6-S in both the spades and the 6's for the 78 hand.

78: [any spade (9/45 + 9/45 = 18/45) + any non-spade 6 (3/45 + 3/45 = 6/45)] = 24/45

KK: [any non-spade j (3/45 + 3/45 = 6/45) + odds of 78 not improving (21/45)] = 27/45

And that flips the probable outcome. The Kings are the way to go. That's not even counting the 4Ks possibility, remote as it is.

At least that's what the back of my envelope currently says anyway.

Posted by: qdpsteve at May 14, 2016 11:02 PM

I don't think I've ever bluffed with *nothing*. However, at the right time, I'll sometimes exaggerate my hand. Don't want to get caught out holding zip. Usually get my way. It's a matter of expecatations. If they think I don't put big $$$ on the table unless it's a virtual lock for me, I can grab pots when I REALLY need them, with long shots.

Posted by: Vugar Rasim at May 14, 2016 10:41 PM (mdemt)


Yeah, that space article was long on speculation, short on facts and figures. My take on it: if we can't master FTL travel, only the closest of the nearby stars are within our range, and that only on one-way trips. So if Alpha Centauri has a habitable planet, a one-way colonization trip is probably doable, with present or probable future technology.


If you put FTL travel on the table, all bets are off. Perhaps there is no upper bound to speed if FTL travel, or warp drive, or wormholes are used. It might even be easier to make a jump to a far-distant galaxy than a jump within the Milky Way. Until we gain an understanding of what physical laws underlie any possible mechanisms for FTL travel, we really don't know.

He's been playing professionally since the 1950s and of late has unfortunately been really showing his age; I believe he's in his 80s. He was at one time very obese and lost most of the weight, but now he's having the usual old-age issues.

In the meantime, his son, Todd Brunson, is also now considered an all-time great poker player.

157 Steve,
We got tickets to see Jerry Seinfeld at the Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez. We always gamble after the show.
Last time we saw a concert there I won 800 playing blackjack.
I did my husband's strategy where if I win a hand (25) for example I bet 50 the next hand. If I win again I add 1 chip to the bet and pull one back. So the next hand I'm betting 75 a hand. I was lucky. I keep adding 1 more 25 chip for every consecutive win. You have to bet big to win big.

Which is probably one of the reasons for the Tesla's "success" in the marketplace. They don't look like some goofy George Jetsonmobile. There have been a host failed EV's, and nearly all of them looked like golf carts on steroids. Nobody with any class or taste would be caught dead in one, and the classless, tasteless people that would were also, strangely enough, cashless.




Teslas look normal enough to be mistaken for a Taurus, or maybe the new Jaguar (heh), but they go like a raped ape, and with the government subsidies, are quite affordable for the class of people who are inclined to buy such things.

Everyone knows Pechanga and Morongo, but there's actually tons of casinos, both card clubs and "indian" places, in California. Wouldn't mind checking a lot of them out.

Also, if I won the lottery I'd probably spend a month visiting tons of places in the northern and eastern Nevada area: Reno, Sparks, Fallon, Winnemucca, Wendover, Jackpot, Mesquite, Elko/Ely, the works.

162 Cali, congrats. I've done that too occasionally.

It's true, you have to bet big to win big, especially at blackjack. What I especially love about it is that if you know what you're doing, it's one of the very few "positive expectation" games available in the casino. That is, if you play it right, *you* should mathematically make more money than the casino does.

Can't say that about most traditional casino games, especially the classic craps, roulette (which in fairness the rest of my family loves), etc etc. Those games vastly favor the "house."

I have a good friend who is a gay man. He is all for this, and argues that trans men should be able to use the restroom of their choice. For reasons I don't understand, his brain just stops when I start talking about girls in showers and so on.

His argument is that trans men don't attack women. Straight men do. I say sure, but you're making it easier for them. His response is that they'll molest girls in bathrooms and locker rooms regardless, so let the trans men/women do what they want, since women/girls will always be bothered by predatory men.

I usually just give up at this point in the argument.

- It's hard to find a good low-limit game where they play with only one or two decks (and if you do, they shuffle after *every* hand); most casinos now use those Shufflemaster machines.

Many people have the mistaken impression that card counting is cheating. It's not. The cheating comes in if you use any kind of aid to do the counting. Some celebrity got into trouble a while ago because he was stacking his differently colored chips in a way to keep track of his count.

But, the Shufflemaster neutralizes the people who can keep the count using just their head. Count all you want for all the good it does you if the whole thing gets reset every deal.

194 Molly, he's a math professor at UC Irvine who wrote and released the book "Beat The Dealer" in 1966. It's the all-time best-selling gambling book of all time, and it contains the first official 'counting system' for blackjack.

There's lots of stories about how, working on his theories, Thorp was so successful that by the time his book came out, he was already banned from virtually every single casino in Nevada. He made a fortune playing BJ back in the days of single decks and 3:2 payoffs, then made a far bigger one just from the royalties on the book.

I'd like to read it just for its historical value, you can still get a copy at Amazon.

In the meantime, Thorp started up his own investment firm, which is supposedly modeled after some of the same theories he worked out for BJ in the 1960s, and he's a very wealthy man today. He seems to me the kind of person whose life story would make a great movie, I hope it gets made someday.

198 Cali, easy. :-) Less decks make for far easier card counting.

If your dealer is using only one deck, you only have to keep track of 16 10s (10s, Jacks, Queens, Kings) and four aces in the deck. The more decks, the more multiples of 16 and aces you have to keep track of.

There's also a couple of Lamborghini's in the neighborhood (somewhere), that only come out in the spring and disappear in the fall.

And a guy down the street (the other way) has a Ferrari 308. He lives in a modest house, so all his money must be in the car.

The reason people like to count is they are waiting for the deck to get lopsided. If a whole bunch of face cards has already been played, the odds are, with fewer face cards left in the deck, the next card will be a low card.

Counting doesn't help if the distribution stays normal. If the mix of cards the has been played so far is a good mix, they you won't have a bump in the odds as far as what the next card will be.

If you are playing with a 6 deck shoe, it is less likely that the distribution will get skewed enough so that you can count on the odds being different than normal as far as what the next card will be.

And of course, if they start out with a newly shuffled deck every hand, the deck doesn't get much of a chance to get lopsided.

The casino wants to play with the normal odds. The card counters are just waiting for the deck to get lopsided enough so that the odds are better that the next card will be one that will help them.

225 My personal last trans interaction involved sitting on a LA bus outside Universal City Station as a shrieking tranny in full drag stumbled up and down the aisle waving a revolver, screaming she was Diana Ross and demanding the cops bring his husband Berry Gordy to him.

It was almost as scary as the dozen or so LA Sheriff's Deputies surrounding the bus and pointing a bunch of sidearms, shotguns and AR's at it. The tranny only had six bullets and I've seen the deputies shoot...

229 There's a non-Tesla charging station at the Food4Less in Canyon Country, which is a rather ghetto local for this region. I can;t help wondering who is going to use it as the demographic for electric cars right now doesn't correspond to either the location or the particular grocery chain. I only go by there about once a week if there is something good on special or I have business nearby to prevent it from being a special trip, and I've never seen any of the reserved stalls in use.

There are probably some charging stalls in the big Valencia mall, which I suppose would be useful if you are a high level exec at the cruise line that has its HQ nearby. Otherwise, I'm hard put to imagine anyone who spends so much time there and can afford the car.

An interview with some member of the Venezuelan military.

Venezuela Is on the Brink of Social Collapse

"The situation in Venezuela has never been as bad as it is now. The breaking point is near, but still not at hand. My recommendation is for people to prepare, to look for food and then to store it. Obviously, when the implosion occurs , it won't last long. I believe it will last something like 10 days, but they will be difficult days."

Heart attack? Snake bite? No telling. Right now he's out there barking at the night as usual, so that's a good sign.

Naturally, he has to do this on Saturday evening - vet won't be available until Monday. Nearest emergency vet is too far away.

This kind of thing usually goes one of two ways, either they get better shortly... or they don't. We'll see how he is tomorrow, but it's concerning.

I picked up a few pounds of delrin for you, if you want it.

The problem I faced, as the "owner" and another customer put it, is that the vast majority of the metal was un-labeled. When I was there 2 weeks ago, there seemed to be some labeling ... perhaps previous buyers bought all the labeled stuff, and the rest lost its identity.

If the metal, perhaps 3 tons total weight, had been labeled, the "owner" could've sold it to a local dealer for perhaps $20,000 ... but since it wasn't labeled ... we could tell aluminum from SS from steel; but differentiating between 303 and 304 SS, or W1 v. S7 ... couldn't be done.

I did get a nice angle plate for $20 though. This is about market rate.

The problem I faced, as the "owner" and another customer put it, is
that the vast majority of the metal was un-labeled. When I was there 2
weeks ago, there seemed to be some labeling ... perhaps previous buyers
bought all the labeled stuff, and the rest lost its identity.



If the metal, perhaps 3 tons total weight, had been labeled, the
"owner" could've sold it to a local dealer for perhaps $20,000 ... but
since it wasn't labeled ... we could tell aluminum from SS from steel;
but differentiating between 303 and 304 SS, or W1 v. S7 ... couldn't be
done.



I did get a nice angle plate for $20 though. This is about market rate.

Sounds good -- I'll run by and grab it sometime during the week. Right now, I'm doing a lot of weekend fiancee stuff. If you're up for it, maybe we could do a road trip to that place in Redwood City that you said has brass....

In fact, I need to go there to get some mild steel. It's only open M-F, and traffic south after 3:30PM is time-consuming, so going there over lunch is not a bad idea.

Contemplate a day. I can drive, and deliver the delrin as well.

299 If the upper speed limit is the speed of light, then yeah we are stuck in the Local Group.

If not, not.

We already have demonstrations of transmission of information via quantum entanglement. AKA FTL transmission.

That upper speed limit doesn't mean much now. If a bit can be transmitted across any distance at null time, we aren't limited.

The thing is all the galaxies are made of the same stuff and follow the same rules. So how different could they be?

I don't think we're able to prove that conclusively. If not only for the fact that we're observing a universe that 'was,' not as it currently 'is.'

Even if you could travel at infinite speed and could check out every single star in the Universe and explore each one for one day, you could never finish the task.

Who is the 'you'? Is that 'you' like a web search engine that is constantly searching 10's of millions of websites?

Or is 'you' like a much, much faster computational system that will, repeat *will*, be invented and reinvented over the next billion years of our history?

Sorry, predicting the course that humanity won't take is not just folly. It's a vain attempt at wisdom.

310 About a week ago there was a pricing mistake on the Staple site that had 64GB USB 3.0 flash drives going for 99 cents. So I order the maximum ten. The order appeared to go through but a few days later I got a notice saying the error had been noticed and all orders canceled. No big deal.

Tonight I got an email asking me to review the product.

311 My brother is a good enough Texas Holdem player to have won the City of Houston championship. The next year he was back at the final table with a good shot at going back to back.

He was dealt the 8-9 of spades. The flop goes 10-J-Q of spades; he flopped a queen high straight flush. Being a good player he slow played his hand letting everyone else raise the pot on their straights and flushes. He - of course - winds up going all in, and is called by three players. He shows his hand and is reaching for the pot when the third player to call him turns over the Ace-King of spades. My brother's Queen high straight flush is the highest hand it is even possible to lose; there can't be a worse bad beat story than that.
