Overnight Open Thread 05/19/16 - [Niedermeyer's Dead Horse]

Keeping it simple tonight. As if you guys click the links anyway.

I love amusement park rides but after a particularly scary experience at the local fair, I no longer ride the rides at those portable fairs. This is one reason why:

Safety is our highest priority!

Here's something your kids will love.



If you are so inclined, there are videos on You Tube as to how you can make it yourself.


Fan-cee! Horse groomer takes trimming to a whole other level.

Behold.

A Google or Bing search will reveal lots of other designs as well. Each is is spectacular.


Feeling frisky? Ten office pranks that probably won't get you fired.

Let me know how it goes.


With frightening accuracy, as usual.



Ain't that the truth?


One of my favorite videos to surface since Prince's death.

Enjoy.

Just. So. Chill.


That's it for tonight.

Oh, and P.S., this ONT brought to you by men who served us well.

Thinking of Mr. Bennett this evening. Will there ever be another?


Oh, and I'm a bit off as to the ONT coverage for tonight, so don't be completely caught off guard if another pops up later.

3 Tin Foil Time: FLight MS804 disappeared 804 days after MH370.

Despite earlier announcements - no wreckage has been found.

And, I checked - no crashes 370 days before Air Malaysia.

Some, not all. Some get it. Some understand the realities and thank God they're women.

Others believe that there's a big Daddy in the sky and when they find out that's not true they lose their shit and become female myrmidons for the Anti-Penis movement.

103 Flight 804:
They say it turned left 90 degrees then right 360 degrees. The illustration shows the plane turning left 90 then right 360 then another 90. Thus, its original heading.

If the heading was due south and the plane did a 90 and only a 360 as said its new heading would have been due east.

This is the 3rd day this week they had a nominal Republican on. (Ana Navarro today, Michael Steele, S.E. Cupp earlier in the week.)
In each case, during the brief interview period, the RINO was encouraged to express dismay over Trump --- and each obliged, to the merriment of all.

Of course, no one on the other side was invited to express dismay over the Bitch and the Bolshie.

107 When I was a teenager, my friends and I worked setting up and tearing down the rides at one of those portable fairs every year when it came to town. The regular carnies directed us of course, but they wanted the extra muscle and just someone to do grunt work. We would also work in the stalls on the midway during the week that the fair was in town. It was good money for a teen. Probably illegal these days. Might have even been illegal then.

120 The California State Senate approved an anti-gun bill today. The primary news about the bill is that it will require background checks for ammunition purchases. But there are a whole host of other amendments and items that are part of the bill.

To great hilarity, I noted that one of the amendments on the bill had been proposed by former State Senator Leland Yee (D). Yee, as some of you may recall, was busted by the FBI for arms smuggling. And not just namby-pamby AKs. No, he was apparently buying RPGs from MILF (that's the Filipino terrorist group, you pervs....), meaning that he was consorting with Islamic terrorists.

That apparently rates you five years in the pokey, btw.

So our good former State Senator Mr. Yee was not only smuggling weapons into the country, but also making it harder for citizens to lawfully purchase them.

What a hypocrite.

Or maybe it was just good business to him? Maybe he figured that with the legal avenues all cut off, more people would turn to him instead?

123 According to CDC the average weight of and height of an American woman is 5'3" and 160 lbs. The average weight of a US soldier going into combat would be about 45 lbs., and in some cases may approach 100 lbs. So a woman going into an immediate combat situation may be required to carry over one fourth of her body weight into a firefight.
No offense ladies, but the first time that the guy next you loses his head to a heavy round, you'll probably get hysterical when you see that. A guy may puke and be scared, but I think that most women would be rendered combat ineffective at that sight. The majority of the men, after a brief moment to puke, would probably get back in the fight. I think the majority of women would either freeze up or run.
So therefore, after all that, I say let's go ahead, draft women and transgendered and what not. After all, if it's all going to hell in a handbasket, let's give them what they want.

125 Well, we got to see my mother for another appointed hour today. She was better, but no better than yesterday. And she wasn't wanting to eat much again today. When we got there, they'd just brought her supper tray. She'd picked at it, and ate a few bites and the declared she couldn't eat anymore.

Well, I got the knife and fork and just started cutting it up and then spoon fed it to her. She'd protest but eat everything I put in her mouth. It was sort of pitiful. I had a profound, wistful thought: the circle is complete. 48-49 years ago, she was doing that for me, a little publius, and now I'm doing it for her. The circle is complete.

Now, since yesterday, they'd brought in two more patients and they were sitting at the same table as my mother. They were nice enough, but it was obvious they were batshit. Apparently both of them were abused women, husbands beating them, and had driven them crazy.

I heard then talking, as they watched me feed my mother, wondering if I would beat women. Also, wondering about my father. It's sad, I guess. That's all they knew.

I really don't like my mother in there with them like that, but it's fairly supervised I think.

If it's the one I'm thinking of, she messed up more than her back.
IIRC the living conditions caused her to get a lady infection that left her sterile.
Plus she said before that her body started to break down due to rigors of service. The guys had issues too, but not anywhere near as bad as hers.
She was no delicate flower. She was a college ice hockey player before she served and in excellent shape.

Figure 10 lbs for a rifle, say 5 lbs for ammo, and 30 lbs for body armor, and my old out of shape body (too much smoking and drinking) would be hard pressed to run 50 yards. Add to that helmet, bayonet, first aid kit, canteen, grenades, and maybe having to schlepp rpgs, mortar rounds, or belt fed ammo, and I'm going to die in the first 50 feet.

283 Surprised someone hasn't tried to do a Las Vegas crime drama, but in the style of "Miami Vice."

There was that stupid Vegas show that was out a few years ago, that supposedly took place around 1955. I think the plot of every episode was:

- Crime committed in Vegas
- Featherhead police force can't solve it
- They go to Mr. Tough Guy main character
- He goes out and beats up a lot of tough guys
- "Here's your man, chief!"

Some TV producers, it doesn't matter how much things change; they're gonna keep spoon-feeding audiences the same ol' rancid crapola that was beyond tiresome 40 years ago, 'til they're literally six feet under.

30 pounds of armor doesn't feel like much when you're wearing it. I spent almost all of my free time in my 20s doing SCA stuff. It may not be the exact same kind of armor, but if your armor is well-fitted, you barely even notice it.



I've met plenty of women who can fight while wearing that much armor, or more.

Yes, they hire temporary employees to come and help set up those rides that go up and down the road 52 weeks a year to run all day long after having the stress of putting them up and taking them down.

I wouldn't be surprised if that played a part in his decision. The writing was getting worse year by year, to the point where his normal-hetero-male character wasn't fitting in so well.

(From what you and others have said, the show has gone even more completely around the propaganda bend since he left.)

I have to disagree. I heard a lot of Internet rumors about Rod Stewart and Richard Gere over the years that not only claimed they were gay but that they engaged in a certain sex act so much that they needed to have their stomachs pumped. It is a problem male heterosexuals certainly don't have to deal with. Those rumors about Stewart and Gere are true, right?!?

Posted by: qdpsteve at May 20, 2016 01:13 AM (ntObR)

367 @335 One of the things that's really getting tiresome is the way, even today, gay characters are presented on television. They're always super-attractive, ridonkulously sassy, and all but scream "I'M GAY!!!!!" every 15 seconds.

I know for a fact most gay people aren't anything like how they're portrayed on TV. They have zero interest in drag, mind their own business and have bills to pay and issues to worry about like everyone else.
-----------------

There are exceptions.

The Flash has two known gay characters. Capt. Singh, the head of the police station, is pretty low-key. He's gay. He doesn't beat people over the head with it. If he hadn't mentioned his boyfriend a couple of times (the first time was to complain about said boyfriend forcing him to watch his weight), you likely wouldn't know. IIRC, the only time said boyfriend has appeared onscreen so far is when Singh ended up in the hospital.

Apparently the show's writers are smart enough to recognize that they shouldn't let Singh's sexual orientation distract from the superheroics.

Hartley Rathaway is possibly the more interesting one, though. And I'm somewhat surprised that the LGBT crowd hasn't whined about him (or maybe they have; it's not like I check to see). Rathaway is known in the comic books as Pied Piper. And like Singh, he's gay in both the comics and the TV series.

When he's introduced in a first season episode, he's an arrogant jerk that no one likes. He's smart, he knows it, and he wants to make sure that everyone else knows it. He's gay. He knows that he can use his sexuality to annoy people. And he doesn't get along with his very rich parents. We're left to guess that it's because of his sexuality. He's also the bad guy of the episode that he appears in.

During season two, Flash ends up traveling back in time one year to when Rathaway appeared, and ends up changing the timeline when Flash preemptively brings an end to Rathaway's plans before the episode's new threat appears. Rathaway teams up with the good guys to put a stop to the episode's new threat, and Flash returns to his starting point, one year later.

When Flash arrives at when he started, he's shocked to discover that Rathaway is now a fairly decent guy. And he happens to have dinner plans that night... with his parents.

Ergo, one takeaway from this character is -

If you're gay and having fights with your parents, maybe it's not your sexual orientation that's to blame. Maybe it's just you!

Of course, by the end of the show he had solved those issues by marrying Amy (played by Monica Horan). Still, at least the writers were smart enough to make his transition extremely awkward as well as funny.

IMHO some shows appear to be written by people who've actually *left* Hollywood and had to make it in the real world, and some shows appear to be written by people whose whole lives have been a Hollywood fairy tale.

I have no idea how hetero or homo either of them are. Public figures are very concerned about their marketability, so they both have a reason to want to be seen as hetero even if they are homo. But, if they really were hetero, they would still want to be seen as hetero.

The rumors always seemed a little to "good" to be true, so I am skeptical about them.

Lonely? Technically, I guess, none of them actually are. However I was alluding to the whole sex life thing. Gilfoyle seems to be able to pull chicks, now and then, but, the rest, not so much. Bachman talks a big game, but doesn't get as much as he thinks he should. Jared/Donald is down for the count. Hendricks would like to, but doesn't know how to seal the deal. Bighead has millions of $$$ but would still be relying on his Nip Alert. Dinesh is so hopeless, the other hopeless casesx make fun of him.

The chick Shonda or something, that does every show on ABC on Thursdays has about half the characters gay or bi, and they pretty much use their sex to get whatever they want. I actually feel sorry for the characters and don't find it "sexy" at all.

Years ago when Modern Family started, about midway through the first season, the SJW's had a big "Let Mitch and Cam Kiss" campaign. They didn't get the characters at all. It wasn't that they didn't kiss, it was that this is a "documentary" type of show with cameramen following them around, and Mitchell is probably the most high strung guy in the world, and he is someone with a really hard time showing affection. If you watched his interactions with his dad and sister, you would have seen that, but..... they didn't kiss because the writers were too afraid to do it. IIRC, when they finally did kiss, they turned it into an episode showing how much Mitchell hated showing affection towards anyone.

ladies but nevertheless straight, an equally dashing officer who's not
quite ready for marriage but nevertheless a gentleman, and a teacher who
just... doesn't have a love life. I got soooo tired of the idea that the hero always has to get all the girls ever. (Plus, my plots are complicated enough without throwing in unnecessary sex!)

The one show where Chuck Lorre seems to at least halfheartedly *try* to break the mold, is Mike & Molly. It's also way to infused with sex and the plots make Three's Company look like Shakespeare, yet at the same time the couple are *very* traditional and take their Catholicism quite seriously, which in today's TV world is seriously countercultural.

399 Gere has had a whole career as a leading man. For him to come out now would mean he would have to admit he's been lying this whole time, plus he would have to change his fan base. Why take a risk when he can easily get work as a leading man? Plus, I think he already does well with the GBLT crowd, so I don't know if he would get anything extra from that direction anyway.

Page had a couple of hits, but nothing like Gere's profile. I don't think she was a has been, more like a minor star. But, I haven't really followed her, so maybe coming out helped her. I'm guessing she was more like someone who nobody ever paid much attention to what she was. So she came out and briefly got a little extra press. But, if she hadn't made an official announcement, would anyone even care one way or another?

There was something extraordinary about that romance. Amy was ---(gasp! I don't know if I should even write the dirty word) --- a virgin. And, although there was plenty of kidding around about her being an all-around goody-goody, she wasn't portrayed as being a neurotic freak.

In most programs the Christians are just made fun of and portrayed as inferiors. In ELR they're....human.

The Big Bang Theory also has done (relatively) well with Sheldon's mother. They ascribe a lot of silly, bigoted views to her --- (lefties don't really know what conservatives believe) --- but she comes across as one of the most sympathetic characters.

440 You know, if you like the behind-the-scenes stuff, about how the sausage is "really" made, check out "Unknown Chaplin" sometime. The thing is - Chaplin filmed all his rehearsals, and the rehearsals are really where he "wrote" his films. There are scenes where he's playing one character for takes 1 - 10. The from 11- 25 he's another character. You can literally see the scenes evolve.

One of the most famous. He spent some 20 or so takes doing a scene in a restaurant. Then he decides - this shouldn't be the first scene - this should be the last scene. That's The Immigrant.

468 "Apparently, lawyers, somewhere in the halls of the Justice Department whose identities are unknown to this court, decided unilaterally that the conduct of the DHS in granting three-year DACA renewals using the 2014 DHS directive was immaterial and irrelevant to this lawsuit and that the DOJ could therefore just ignore it," Hanen wrote. "Then, for whatever reason, the Justice Department trial lawyers appearing in this Court chose not to tell the truth about this DHS activity. The first decision was certainly unsupportable, but the subsequent decision to hide it from the Court was unethical."

Hanen seemed to lament that he couldn't disbar the attorneys involved, but he barred the out-of-state attorneys from enjoying the right to practice law in Texas.

"The court does not have the power to disbar the counsel in this case, but it does have the power to revoke the pro hac vice status of out-of-state lawyers who act unethically in court," he wrote. "By a separate sealed order that it is simultaneously issuing, that is being done."

That's an average of once every two minutes, and doesn't even count the number of times Clinton mentioned the presumptive Republican nominee unprompted to make a point.

This wasn't an accident, but a result of Trump's deliberate communications strategy to flood the zone. In the Republican primary, the New York businessman's ubiquitous presence on television, and social media, primarily Twitter, helped sink an experienced field of opponents.

They were constantly off balance and on defense -- and being forced to respond to Trump reinforced an image among GOP voters that the real estate mogul was the only candidate offering solutions to their problems.

The argument centered on whether the crime of attempted arson he committed was a federal or State crime. (I throw the BS flag to the 3 who said no to deportation. He can, and should be, deported whether any crime has been committed or not. And my favorite judge was one of those three against deportation.

527 Actually, Big Bang Theory's Sheldon was definitely a virgin until quite recently. His remarks after Amy finally got him into be made that clear.

If you look up the unaired pilot (it can be found on torrent sites and maybe it's on one of the DVD sets) the original versions of the characters were somewhat different. The opening scene had them making donations at a high IQ sperm bank for extra money and the jokes made it clear that Sheldon had some very specific desires in women that were unsatisfied by the pornography offered to donors.

The Howard and Raj characters didn't exist and the female lead was completely different, being a rather nastier sort of girl that that Sheldon and Leonard take in like a stray dog.

Morning, 'rons and 'ronettes.

Here are a couple of pix of the Ziegfeld girl Adrienne Ames. First, a studio portrait where she's got a bit of the Nora Charles look:

http://goo.gl/sFbxbl

And what may be a movie still, where she's doing a Greta Garbo bit:

http://goo.gl/E1QXEM

Ames wasa Texas lady, born in Fort Worth and after her Ziegfeld stint, moved over to silent pictures, starting out as a stand in for the temperamental star Pola Negri. But by the late 1930s, her career had fizzled out, so she moved to NYC and, according to wiki, hosted a talk radio show on station WHN until dying in 1947.

I'm in the N. Panhandle of WV and last night was the first night of the zombie cicada parade...they've been telling us they are on the way, but after the warm sunny day yesterday, Oh My! Home from a school event in the early evening, there was a literal parade of creatures crawling towards the large oak trees on the street. Looking at our yard, it looked like it had just been aerated, but those little dirt clods were all crawling and moving. Many of them don't make it, and die on the sidewalk. What a mess. Not as bad (yet) as I had imagined, but I think it's still going to get worse. They haven't starting 'singing' yet, so nights are still quiet.
