ONT 5-23-16: Houston, we Have a Slacker Edition [krakatoa]

Ever spend a day in a hotel just watching whatever came on the tube next?

Good, bad, happy, sad, RomCom or Thriller, I just didn't care.

I suppose I should have taken some of the helpful suggestions from the EMT comments and found something more interesting to do, but man, my "free time" for the past 2 weeks at home has been spent on a variety of pain-inducing tasks, I have night work to do tonight, and it just felt right to laze the day away.

So I watched most or all of 27 Dresses, Lucy, Saving Silverman and Eagle Eye today.

I'm not going to review them for you, other than to say my bar for mindless entertainment was low today, and HBO delivered. If your bar is likewise low (and let's face it: "moron horde" kinda advertises its own limitations), you might enjoy them as well.

Well, except for Eagle Eye. Man that movie sucks. I'm pretty confident in saying that considering I've now watched it twice. I think the director must have really hated Rachel Monaghan there at the end, when instead of having her kiss him on the lips, he had her kiss Shia Lebeouf on his patented 5-day homeless-dude cheek-scruff. He looks like he's contracted Bunny Pox.


It was a trivial movie day, so here's 51 movie trivia items. I don't know that any of it is particular mind-blowing, other than the suggestion that Charlie Sheen's preparation for his cameo in Ferris Bueller's Day off could be labeled "preparation" rather than just being Charlie Sheen.


If you were looking for a reason to not go to Canada (and some people go so far as to alphabetize their reasons) you can add this to your list. Samuel Jackson has already purchased the movie rights.


Yesterday I texted my wife as my first flight started its 20 minute tarmac delay.

"Holy Crap, but some ahole has decided now is the time to enjoy their tuna-fish salad sandwich"

The delay almost made me miss my next flight but too my relief, not only did I make it, but the only food smell on the next plane was pizza. I let my wife know, and she told me something so horrifying and crazy it must be true:

"While in Denmark, I discovered that Scandinavians eat corn and tuna pizzas. Regularly enough that it's on buffets & menus."

Stupid snowbillies can't even pizza right.

I was tempted to post a picture of that abomination here, but it wasn't long ago that this space was tormented with images of Yoko. The reek of that has only just begun to wear off.

Bork!


What did you used to do before Ace of Spades HQ? I spent quite a bit of time lowbrowing, where I learned things about alternate toothbrush uses and never trusting farts, and other assorted bits of guttural wisdom.

Girls and ladies:
When you invite any male co-workers to your home on purely non-romantic social occasions.

You should, of course, hide the contents of your panty drawer, but, much more important, you should ALWAYS hide your laundry hamper.

Or not, as you prefer...

It was a sad that they shut down, but at least the Internet Archive remembers. So any time I really need a shadenfreudian pick-me-up, it's only a couple clicks away.

I think most of you could relate:

About Lowbrow.com

Lowbrow.com is dedicated to bringing you the best user submitted content about scraping the bottom and being a general piece of shit.

It is about moments where you said something completely inappropriate, where you stuck your foot in your mouth, or stamped the air out of some poor fuck's lungs.

Lowbrow.com is about calling people names, shitting in their pudding, pushing them down stairs, eating white bread and expired fruit pies from the bakery outlet and drinking "charcoal filtered" vodka - straight from the plastic two liter bottle.

Lowbrow.com is about vomiting on a city bus, mistaking someone's sex, driving your car through a garage door, taking swings at police, and standing on the front step of your trailer home with a loaded shotgun and a can of Old Milwaukee's Best.

Lowbrow.com is about criticizing people, it's about knowing what's right, being better than the next guy, and spouting barstool philosophy.

Lowbrow.com is about sweat stains on your wife beater t-shirt, shaving your head, but not your mutton-chops, owning cars with "t-tops," eating at fast food restaurants, and having full-time diarrhea.

Lowbrow.com is not about unrequited love, being dumped, or teen angst - unless there is an unbelievably cruel, nasty or embarrassing aspect to the story. Stories of infidelity, incredible sex with strangers, and/or sitting home alone masturbating are, however, encouraged.


So it's Maet's third week in Japan, and I believe he has finally moved into the "vacation" stage of things. One can hope his vacation is at least as joyous & full of introspective illuminations as Strindberg's:


Tonight's ONT brought to you a vague sense of foreboding.

But I came with one change of clothes, so figured a day of debauchery would have potentially made for a flight of shame tomorrow.

The TSA has just started pegging me for extra searches again now that the threat level is up, they have been publicly embarrassed, and I always travel with wires & tools.

I'd try to tell them it's just for clock-making, but I'm not Arab enough to pull that off.

Posted by: Anna Puma at May 23, 2016 10:34 PM (6TBbF)


Most of the dogs went on suborbital flights into space, and many of them were recovered. Some weren't, as was the case with some of our monkeys. Early rockets weren't terribly reliable.

Laika was the first living creature to orbit the Earth, and it was a suicide mission, because there was no means to bring a satellite back down from orbit. The Soviets were all about scoring propaganda coups in those days, and this was a way to show that their rockets were more powerful and more capable than ours.

Biscuit pizza is indeed simple and awesome.

I would not use Ragu (and personally I can't use the canned biscuits, and this is a huge annoyance, because they are *so* good and easy).

Prego makes good pizza sauce, Contadina canned with italian herbs is better.

100 I liked "Lucy" quite a bit. It was probably the last movie I got from Netflix that I was glad I saw. That was about a year ago, I think; ever since then it's either been "Wow is this terrible" or "I cannot imagine why anyone thought making this would result in something interesting. They were really wrong."

It might just be that movies are no longer something I can enjoy.

Notice the delicate phrasing, sounds like the Leader died of old age rather than being blown up and burned beyond recognition along with his wife.

War is so antiseptic these days compared to the Burning Bush Times. When was the last time you heard anything about collateral damage?

192 First place I ever hung out at on a regular basis online, was rec.gambling.poker. Unfortunately it had some trolls who were just determined to bring up their lefty politics and be complete assholes to anyone even slightly religious (Christian).

Then I found HughHewitt.com, before I realized Hugh was a complete GOPe apparatchik. However, he did turn me onto a lot of other great blogs, including Michelle Malkin and here.

There also was a great blog that I've told you all about before, called Right Thinking From The Left Coast. Wasn't actually righty so much as hardcore libertarian, and its founder was also unfortunately hugely biased against people of faith. But then said owner/founder, Lee, passed away. It's still around but under different management, and isn't nearly as un-PC as it used to be IMHO. Haven't been there in a long time.

Get the tickets way early in the morning for the Arizona Memorial, And then get swarmed by tourists when you get there, half of which are Japanese. There are guided tours of USS Missouri but the upkeep of the ship is a bit shabby, on the pier with the battleship is a canteen and gift shop. Then there is the submarine to tour.

On Ford Island is a museum and parked outside on display, in 2010, was an F-14D Tomcat. The bus tour guide on Ford Island will explain the control tower with the red and white checkers, as seen in Tora Tora Tora was actually completed in 1942 after the attack.

235 Pizza from scratch is a bear if you are looking for the most authentic of authentic, the thing that will make a New Yorker cry short of kicking in the nads - is a difficult thing.

I'd start with pre made crust and just work on the sauce and getting the toppings just so. That's a minor feat in and of itself.

Next, the insane-but-works 2 ingredient pizza dough:
1 cup of greek yogurt
1 cup of all purpose flour - sifted, not packed down.

Mix, let rest in fridge, roll out thin - about 9 or 10" in diameter. Bake that at 400F or so on a prepared sheet pan for 10 min. Remove, add toppings, and return to oven for another 10min or until cheese is melted.

Last, if you've mastered all of those, then try Alton Brown's 2-day, multi-stage, multi-power tool, ultimate pizza dough. Or not.

283 Most any Sensei worth his salt, will always teach his students to afford the utmost in caution and respect to any reasonably proficient boxer.

First, for the reasons Bigby stated.

Second, for the fact that Boxers are perhaps the most highly trained Martial Artists in the skill of not being punched in the first place.

A black belt in whirlybird-fu is just beating up air, if the boxer keeps slipping the punches.

And they make it look so deceptively simple and easy, don't they? A inch-sideways twitch of the head, the strike misses. A bob, a weave, a feint. And the punches just don't land.

Plus, it's as much a foundation to every other martial art, is the piano to every other instrument in the orchestra.

Myself, I prefer the study of Ching Chang Pow.

296 Rotten Tomatoes used to have a general forum that was a left-wing cesspool. I debated frequently, and tried to find the right level of assertiveness. My strategy was to start out with a point that was strong enough it couldn't be ignored, and then to be fun and pleasant after that. To think of five good points and bring up one or two immediately, but let the conversation happen. The opposite of fisking.

But the gang-up cliquish behavior of liberals, and the conservative or libertarian aloof reluctance to praise like-minded people was instructive.

299 My internet hangout before I discovered Ace Of Spades was freerepublic. When the level of commentary and debate began to plummet there around 2011-12, I started coming to this place. After November 2012, this place fit my mood and outlook better than any other site ("eff this, eff that, and eff that that thing in particular").

I still miss the old freerepublic from the years 1997 to about 2004. There was no better site for conservative activism on the web. Lately I've been going back to it, and it's improved from its low point in 2011/12. Jim Robinson is still totally awesome and the commentary is not as uptight as it used to be. They even have UFC thread now! (It gets trolled a lot though).

Thursdays), and Memorial Shooting Range is $10 on Weds all day. Neither

I get reminded how old I am when I shoot my .45. The first magazine is dead in the center - then I get tired and subsequent shots start spreading out; when I start missing the whole target I quit for the day. Didn't used to be like that. Its why I prefer rifle shooting now.

- As soon as you argue with someone, they start telling you about their degrees, their yearly salary, and their super-hawwwwt wife.

I've learned the best way to respond to this? Tell 'em you don't give a shit, *and* call 'em liars to boot. My personal fave is "LMAO. I doubt you've left your mama's basement for at least five weeks, you're too busy jacking off to child porn."

339 CW, that's been true in the past for me, but I've found that since I've gotten rid of my most rabid liberal friends on FB, the situation has significantly improved. :-)

But as I've said before, I have too many apolitical friends on FB and whenever in the recent past I've gone apeshit on someone... I worry they see it, and start wondering about me/my mental state. So nowadays I prefer to really mouth off at Twitter; I have far fewer personal friends there, and much more many online/conservative friends.

342 Well, my mother is doing about the same as for the past few days. I've been caring several of her friends up to see her -- visiting hours and rules are a bitch, but we're coping him.

She's still not wanting to eat much, and just wants to go to her room and lie in bed. The staff forces her up and tries to get her to talk. She will not initiate any conversation, but will respond when spoken to.

It's killing my father. He gets very down every time he sees her. I can't keep him away, but I think it would be better if he didn't see her every day. It just gets him so down.

I just don't know. They can get her to drink some Ensure, but she'll basically just pick at regular food. I managed to spoon feed her myself one time, but now, she won't even let me do that.

343 I have *one* remaining liberal friend at FB, and thankfully he seems to really be working on not spouting off every time something happens that pisses him off, even though I know for a fact he *despises* Trump and the GOP.

Last week he finally lost it and posted that, since DT is so big on Putin, he hopes Vlad shares some polonium with him.

Okay, stupid. But he's behaved himself for a *long* time, like I have, and he's not posting this BS every day, just once in a blue moon. So I actually posted back to him words along the lines of, "that's cool, get it off your chest." Hope that wasn't too condescending, but thankfully he was okay with that. And I think this guy *knows* I'm a conservative, I 'like' so many conservative posts at FB.

346 qdpsteve,

Twitter is where I keep most of my poltiical stuff, though since my interest in politics these days is quite small, I don't tweet much anymore.

On FB, most of the time, I used the custom lists feature to share the political posts with just the people who don't mind. Every once in a while, though, I forget, and it goes out all over the friends list.

When I was younger and my vision was better, I used to read 250-page novels in a day. And the way I did all the blogs is that I'd use their blogrolls as links to skip through them -- I actually wrote a petulant email to the Powerline guys because they changed their blogroll and, instead of being my usual superhighway, it became "no through traffic."




IIRC, I got the majority of those blogs off of Insty's blogroll.....which he doesn't even do anymore....

362 This is the *one* liberal blog I still read regularly. Note he doesn't allow comments:

newsfromme.com

Its owner/master, Mark Evanier, drives me crazy. A lot of his stuff is on his experience in Hollywood working on cartoons, and he knows a lot of people who've worked in classic live-action series as well. Some of his stories are fascinating.

But then he gets political... and it's obvious it doesn't matter what the facts are, he looooves Hillary and that's it. He also looooves Sanders but acknowledges he doesn't have much of a chance against the Clinton machine.

So he links to every freakin' Jonathan Chait article he can find, he loves Matt Taibbi and Amanda Marcotte too. At those points I'm ready to stop reading him. Then, he writes stuff like this:

http://www.newsfromme.com/2016/05/22/one-six-nine/

...which makes total sense. He's also the *only* liberal I've ever read who acknowledges, nobody on *either side* who supports a candidate should have to "own" everything said candidate says. Every other lib I've ever read ALWAYS assumes conservatives ALWAYS support 100%+ of everything that comes out of a Republican's mouth, even while they also ALWAYS exempt themselves from that rule. Not Evanier, apparently.

Anyway, I write to him at Twiter, though he never responds. The last I wrote to him, I said "How can this guy @evanier be so right about some things, and so wrong about others?"

370 if you're looking for an art you can do into old age, for example

Hsing i, if you can find a fighting teacher, hits very hard. its often mixed with Ba Gua which, eh. its neat, it's just odd to me.

Aikido is always mentioned. its OK. I'm not a Nipponophile though.

Tai Chi is foisted on the elderly at every turn. all of it is useless for anything. Which is funny because it used to be extremely powerful. Everything taught is "outside the gate", for the rubes stuff.

theres a few others, much of which are rare to find taught anywhere.

Everyone under 40 needs to take at least a few classes in how to fall. It should be mandatory for any .GOV exercise class.

After you're 70, practicing a safe falls is not in the cards.

That said, aikido schools vary; some are ultra-pacifist. Others are just practical, those acknowledge few antagonists are going to take your arm as an opening move. And even others are Cobra-kai, nuts in your face stupid.

I'd shop around. Few schools don't have an introductory / free lesson. Observing a few lessons is usually quite informative.

Now my friend would run like a scalded dog away from any thought of sort of interfacing with a puh-sychiatrist, and he's hoping it's just his imagination. But his little radar is picking up signals. And they are disturbing.

You're only thinking that because you subscribed to tech magazines, and you'd get separately packaged AOL disks each month for every subscription you had. Typically, there were no more than two actually attached to each magazine (in a pocket on the front and on the inside).

414 Cold and windy all day here. But no rain until late afternoon. I figured, "well, that grass ain't going to mow itself", so I put on my Helly Hansens, and went out and fired up the riding mower. Got the upper ditch mowed, and was hitting a lot of gravel tossed there by the graders, so I figured I'd better hoist up the mower and remove and sharpen its 3 blades.


Got the blades off no problem using my air impact, and sharpened and balanced them, and also did the spare set of blades, so next go-round, I can simply swap blades out.


Putting the blades back on; it all went sideways. The bolt for the middle blade sheared off as I ran it in with the air impact. Shouldn't have happened; I've done it numerous times, and I'm not rattling the shit out of them with the impact wrench. Anyway, spent 2 hours lying on the ground, drilling out the stub of the bolt (3/8 NF) with ever-larger left-handed drill bits, and breaking one in the process. Ultimately wound up drilling it with a 13/32 bit, and tapping it for 7/16-20 NF. Screw was a little loose in the tapped hole, but I slathered it up with red Loctite, and it's holding. Mowed for about an hour, and the blade has stayed on. About 6:00 PM, it started raining, so I quit mowing, and came inside.


Guess I will order up 3 new blade arbors for the mower deck.

436 Lowbrow.com seems to pretty well encapsulate the gestalt of Spenard in a way I never could myself. And I live here.

Spenard is, well, a state of mind, and not always a great one, if you know what I mean. Spenard is where defunct motor vehicles are considered landscaping, you neighbor may have a highly groomed lawn, and the next house throws parties where people pass out on said groomed lawn before the night is over. And are still there the next day.

Spenard is a great place to raise kids, if you want them to know a lot about the world and the people in it. Spenard has no minorities because everybody is here. It is approximately 400 yards between a very old and venerable trailer park and the brand new, gated multimillionare "estates" of Turnagain. Spenard lives and breathes and I have never encountered anyone who is grumpy for more than one day.

So, lowbrow, but fabulous.

Posted by: Iron Mike Golf at May 24, 2016 01:24 AM (di1hb)


These arbor housing are cast iron, with zerks. I use the 1/2" drive air impact because it's hard to brace the blades against turning when using a wrench. Like I said, I don't run the darn thing endlessly once the bolt's run in. Quick zip is all it takes. My guess is the bolt that failed was fatigued, anyway.


I just priced out spindle assemblies. Hoo Boy! Hundred and forty bucks for the center one, and eighty or so for the side ones. Three hundred for the set! I don't thiiink so. For that kind of coin, I'm prepared to spend a few hours shop time fabricating, and pressing in new bearings as required. As long as it continues to mow OK, I will leave well enough alone. If it sheds the middle blade, or if another spindle goes bad, then I will take them all off and service them. I can build up the damaged shaft with weld; then bore it true on the lathe, and rethread to standard size. The pilots on the spindles which center the blades are worn undersize, too, and that could be corrected at the same time.


Good tip about using stainless steel bolts. I am a big believer in anti-seize myself.

This is near to inspiring my rant about "movie reality", where you shoot the gun out of someone's hand. In most cases, if you are justified in shooting; you are justified in shooting to kill.



And, then, there's my least favorite trope in adventure movies -- the bad guys have taken over a boat, and the good guy sneaks aboard....he captures the bad guys, one-by-one, and stashes them in a closet. Right as he confronts the boss man from a superior position, the escaped bad guys arrive to turn tables.....



That should never happen in any sane world. The place to stash bad guys is not a passenger berth's closet -- but, rather, Davy Jones' locker. If you prevail in your discussion with the boss man, there's plenty of time to have the Coast Guard seek out any bad guys with advanced treading-water and shark-avoidance skills along the path you travelled. In the meantime, they're miles in the rear-view while you and the boss man enjoy face-time.

466 Reasons for the US not having a race war:

1. All the rednecks . . . with guns.

2. Blacks are only 13% of the Population. Even they can figure the odds. (jk)

3. Blacks get more stuff whining about Race than trying to . . (wait what WOULD be the purpose of a Race war for them?)

4. Remember the rednecks in #1? They need someone to feel superior to. And complain about. (although lately their reasons are becoming real)

5. All the Whites have at least one Black friend, past or present, thanks to busing (integration). So we can't otherize them as easily as could be done 100 years ago.

A massive $2.8 billion annual corporate tax hike is likely headed to Oregon voters in November, a move that could create the most aggressive tax climate for big business of any state in the nation.

486 Freddie Grey arresting officer who was the subject of that corrupt Baltimore AG witch hunt has been found not guilty. This officer's sole action was sitting in the van that transported Freddie Gray. For that he was charged with assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct. Judge: No credible facts to show he was even involved in arrest. I would say he has a very good cause of action against that corrupt AG. But then what few actual taxpayers left in Baltimore would be held accountable for someone voted in by the FSA who pay no taxes.

What boils my potatoes is not just the IRS cockholster laughing at the GOP - I expect that - but that the feckless nickelfuckers in the GOPe can't even be bothered to exert the least amount of pressure in order to give even a fig leaf pretense that they actually care about the IRS' abuse of power.

"Our goal is to be able to have a conversation that could lead to a better understanding of what Donald Trump has to offer to the country," said Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, according to Fox News, which says Trump has agreed to meet with the evangelical and social conservative leaders.
