Saturday Overnight Open Thread (6/4/16) [Misanthropic Humanitarian]

z sat ont My-saturday-night-summed-up.jpg

CDR M is once again out saving the world. And once again I am attempting to fill his shoes or drink as many beers as he does on a Saturday night. There is no Yoko Ono retrospective, however there may be a quiz at the end of the ONT.


If you were here last night you know in the Upper Midwest "Summer" officially started with Memorial Day weekend. That means it is time to put away the winter things in the garage and bring out the summer things. As I was putting winter things away I thought of these fails. Are you familiar with any of these? Do you think Valu-Rite was involved?

Prank day or commonly known as Saturday

Well our first prank is a serious one. If you're a little short on cash or haven't won that Power Ball this is maybe for you. Remember the ownership, management, staff and advertisers here at the AoSHQ neither endorse or condone this activity.

This prank is a little bit safer. It's amazing no shots were fired in the making of this film.


What is it about bears and pranks going together like apple pie and ice cream?


Never good when Abdul plays pork games with Amir and Mohammed.

The good old invisible driver prank.

Pranks involving bicycles.


Food

CDB has had some good chicken recipes lately. But, he hasn't covered the Colonel. Here are a few things about Colonel Harland Sanders and KFC.

Irish child finds Meth in candy egg. No word if he washed it down with a Red Bulll.

Cut it out boys, if we have to stop these ice cream trucks.......

Tonight's ONT brought to you by the dangers of water.

9 I want to start a chicken fried steak fast food chain. Little tubs of gravy, several regional choices, mashed potatoes, a decent biscuit instead of a bun. Maybe some slices done up like tenders in a little paper cup
Some fresh, hot pork cracklins and decent sweet tea
Offer wafflea, French fries, cheese and gravy combos for variety.

14 Hard to beat the ATK roast chicken.

Loosen skin with a long spoon, rub with salt, herbs, garlic under the skin. Then a smidge of baking powder and salt on top. Small slices in the fatty part of the skin. Let sit in the fridge overnight.

Preheat to 425', and place in oven for 30 min b-side down, flip b-side up, 30 min. May need to foil the ends of the legs to prevent burning.

Butterflying the bird removes a few steps, plus you can rack it in the broiler if the skin isn't browned enough at the end.

17 Starbucks over-roasts their coffee, for me. They are not considered great coffee by Northwesterners. The smaller local places have better stuff. Governor's Cup locally. Allann Brothers have good stuff too.

Smirnoff is actually pretty good, and McDonalds coffee has always been good. Paying more doesn't necessarily mean you're getting a better product.

38 I always order Americano to get fresh coffee. McDonald's coffee is good if it's fresh, which means it's rarely good, I don't get the common comment that Starbucks is over- roasted. I love love love it. I think some people like bitter things. e.g., I can't drink a beer that's less than 90 ibu. And I hate soda. Water, coffee, beer. That's it.

50 I love Popeye's, though you do have to keep an eye out for the occasional feather. I don't hold that against 'em, cuz it can happen to the best of us.

But they took and rurn't their biscuits several years ago, just purely rurn't 'em, by adding cornmeal to the tops.

If I had wanted corn bread, Mr. Popeye, I'd a' went to some place that served it.

McDonald's biscuits are my favorite fast-food variety; when they're good, they're really, really good, and when they're not so good, they're still not bad.

Cracker Barrel also makes a fine biscuit when they cook them long enough.

Posted by: Tammy al-Thor at June 04, 2016 10:50 PM (S/K55)

69 Whataburger has a better pot of fresh coffee than even McDonald's.

How. Ev. Urrrrrrrr.

They went and done did away with the paper type coffee cup, and pour it into a stryofoam cup, nowdays.

Which makes for a nasty, chemical-ly tasting, coat-the-tongue-with-slime, foul concoction.

If you go in with your own travel mug, and make sure you get a pour from a fresh-brewed pot, I think you'd be amazed at how very good their coffee is.

But, I quit even bothering with all that, and just go into a local McD's, and get my brew.

Yes. I have too much blood in my coffeestream.

There are Starbucks machines
--------------------

eman, have you ever compared store-Starbucks with the machine Starbucks? I'm curious, because I've never met office coffee that was worth a second cup.
Posted by: iforgot at June 04, 2016 10:53 PM (5o5ek)

I like the machine coffee enough to drink it for free and avoid the store stuff like carny clowns.

The machine stuff is better, not by too much, and I'm not sure why.

I got massively sick after leaving my cousin's birthday party and having Der Wienerschnitzel on the way home -- never ate a hot dog or anything from DW again from that day to this....despite it being nearly a lock that it was one of the other guests at the birthday party.

Actually as I recall it, you get the charcoals gray, then you add on some soaked (but not dripping) apple chips. Place these heat agents on *one side* of the barbecue and place your meat on the other side. Make sure your vent is open, close the lid and let 'er rip for several hours.

Ah....I've done something similar, but that's what I'm trying to get away from with this smoker. We have a 3 burner propane grill. First, I turn the left zone as high as it goes until the temperature gauge on the right shows I'm hot. Then, turn off the left zone and turn on the right zone at ultra-low. Throw selected garden clippings on the left side and stuff you want to eat on the right side.

A distinctly odd little doll with *two* smiling faces and a key ring on his head. Teens seem to think he's cute, and they'd already been sent so I figured I'd take a chance and see if he sells.

I was at $.10 beer night. I went with seven friends. We had just bought a case from a vendor and sat down, way back behind home plate when all hell broke loose. Thank god we had just bought the beer, because we were of a mind to streak the field.

And Billy Martin is still an asshole. The Tribe was about to mount a comeback, I contend he rushed the field to cause the forfeit.

Good times, good times...

He bought just choice rib eyes at Safeway for half off because they were way too expensive at $14.99 a lb., and I made mushroom gravy from the short rib juice earlier in the week. Short ribs are the best for two meals out of one, because the bones give so much flavor.

On the other hand, the Met has been resting on its laurels for the last two decades. So...

It's all in the process. I don't follow their instructions. I pour about 25 percent of the water in first...let it 'de-gas' for about 30 seconds. Then I fill up the tube, stir for 10 seconds, and let it sit for a minute. Then I use the press portion, taking about 10 seconds to do it.
I think the result is every bit as good as my regular french press. And since the wife is a decaf drinker, I use the aero press for me.

Since someone mentioned D-Day, here's a sneak peek at tomorrow's EZ Dog Journal. Lots happening in Italy in the days before D-Day at Normandy.


June 5, 1944
Rome is ours. We have it surrounded and occupied. The natives are delirious with joy. What with flag waving and flower throwing and shouting and ringing it is a great show. Our battery moved from Velletri to the fair grounds SW of Rome.
As soon as we closed in the new area 'Ace' [Taylor] took me for a flight over Rome. The main streets were thronged with people. The entrance to Vatican City was so crowded with people that we couldn't see the ground. This was the Pope's address welcoming the Allies. A lucky flight for us because flying over the Vatican is strictly forbidden. However this was a special occasion and passed uncensored.

Rome is not badly bombed. Only the railroad yards show any amount of bombing. Our troops are moving well out with little opposition. All troops are advancing straight up the axis on rather narrow division fronts. The Air Corps is still raisinng Cain in the rear areas. Gerry seems very confused and disorganized.

312 I took Chemjeff to the pistol range, for a few dozen "familiarization" rounds.

Mostly, .22 lr, (Browning Buckmark UDX), with some S&W Model 28 and Glock 17 in the mix.

He can learn to shoot a pistol, he ought to be able to learn to cook a steak, yes?

Just needs to be in proximity to a sufficiently skilled, talented and experienced 'ron or 'ette, that could provide tutelage.

We'd all approach the cooking with our myriad differences, nuances and nifty tricks, but I'm sure we all also turn out a tasty steak, regardless of the seasoning profile, or pan, grill, oven or other technique.

There's no one "right way" to do it. But there are untold thousands of wrong ways, and burning the poor cow like a Ganges sacrifice, surely is one of the worst.

317 Since D-Day was mentioned, just thought I'd say something about my cousin Roy C.

There was a very old church with a bunch of Nazis holed up inside. Bombing it was out of the question. They would have to go in and clean it our mano-a-mano. They elected to wait until night.
When they went in it was pitch black. They would crawl forward and when a German fired their gun, they would crawl towards the muzzle flash. When they were close enough, they would jump up, stab with their bayonets, then throw themselves sideways and down to avoid being shot.
My cousin Roy told me how he crawled up close, jumped up and stabbed, only to hit a some pillar the Nazi was hiding behind.
Just a bit of pucker involved.

It is essential to get the cups or whatever you are using absolutely clean. The stale oils kill the flavor of decent coffee. The Keurigs have crevices that are hard to clean

You would probably have enjoyed the Likely Hotel in Likely, B.C., an old gold rush town on Quesnel Lake. Beautiful place. Bruce Deacon ran the bar, and the motto was, "the roof leaks at Deak's", and indeed it did. But the taproom had a huge old stone fireplace that was always going in the winter. Plumbing was a little primitive, and you had to go upstairs to use the indoor facility, which bore a hand-printed sign: "If it's yellow, let it mellow. If it's brown, flush it down."

364 The explanation for her is that her English professor husband and that environment just corrupted her. But her brother is the same way. Well, he's a big Democrat, but not quite as batshit as she is. Well, he did get a M.S. I think, and spent some time in the academic cesspool. I spent time in that cesspool too, not as long, but it didn't turn me.

Actually, I don't know. Brother may be about as batshit as she is, he just phrases things more diplomatically. He loves to argue, though, and always pick me out, knowing I'll give him a good fight. She, however, there's no arguing with her. You could, but it would drive you insane.

Relatives, you can't choose 'em like your friends.

There are lefties down here in the evil South. They're at the colleges, of course, but there's a lot of them infesting a lot of other places as well. Still a minority, but they're there. And they're relentless.

376 Savings......yeah, we paid China with T-bills. It's funny how this trade deficit that all the geniuses tell us doesn't matter works. We import more than we export by a shit ton every year. Well, that means a transfer of dollars out, being the reserve currency.

Well, hell. If they kept the dollars, it wouldn't really do them shit and provided the Fed didn't just emit a shit ton more, there'd be deflation here and inflation (dollar wise) in China. Which should counteract the trade deficit.

In theory...........geniuses at work.

But, there's a clever trick. They loan those dollars back to us, in the form of T-bills, debt (of one form or another, or outright asset purchases), which gets those dollars back to us, to buy yet more shit, which they loan back to us again and so on.

It's an economic perpetual motion machine.

And it's great, say the geniuses.

396 Our Conservative Intelligentsia, Economic Genius Division, is bad to tell us these trade deficits don't really matter. John Stossel did a show on it -- well, he's more libertarian Economic Genius division, I guess. It was downright sophistry. He said a trade deficit with China is no BFD. Why he runs a trade deficit with his grocery store. He pays them for shit, and they don't pay him for any goods or services. Boy, if you added that up, it would be astronomical.

Note the sophistry. His "balance of trade" is zero or positive, positive if he's saving anything, it would only be negative if he were going in the hole.

Yep, if it were just China, and we made it up with a surplus elsewhere, fine.

And then I've seen arguments that the "dominant world power always runs trade deficits". Well, those examples aren't dominant anymore. In fact, they crashed and burned.

Your future Father in Law is much like the first wave (75) boat people we took backpacking into the Sequoias soon after their arrival.

We took seven guys up with us, ranging from a teenage son of a politician, to a RVAF Major pilot, who, like your prospective in-law, was a marked man.

Said major did the majority of the translation for his fellow hikers. And we hand a wonderful, grand, memorable ten days in the high mountains.

We showed 'em how to fish with a rod, reel and lures. Rainbow trout.

They let us cook one meal's worth of them.

And that's the last of that they let us do. Let the record show, that those gents knew how to cook, and not just the trout.

I was honored to know them. I'd be honored to know your soon-to-be-family, should our paths ever transect. My kind of people.

Colonel and family were first-wave; it amazes me to this day that he and they were able to forgive their betrayal at the hands of America - well, the Dems, anyway.

Good people. They sort of remind me of a cross between hillbillies, Cajun, and good ole boys. But with an edge.

Indeed.....

But spare a thought for me, who's trying to marry his favorite daughter....

(And, yes, I call him 'Colonel,' and show the man all proper respect, and he tolerates me in a grudging sort of way, even if he does call me 'the Russian' because of my Judeo-Slavic looks. Man likes his scotch, and I'm introducing him to bourbon....)

It's not so much a question of what you do before it's official; rather, it's what you do after.

(And, well, the Colonel, to my certain knowledge, had a 'wife' and child in the North when he thought his first wife had died. And Lord knows how many between or before. Handsome man he is.)

I've lived near, and worked with tons of 'em over the years.

Down here, most of 'em on the coast are shrimpers, and kind of dominate the numbers in the fleet.

Now, the shrimpers are still a bit "lower caste" in the pantheon of Viet society, but believe me on this, they're as good a person as walks this earth.

The Viet areas up around Bellaire St. and Harwin in Houston, of course, account for a huge number of Viet professionals and the middle/upper middle class. Good people too, for the most part.

But if you want to dial up the redneck/Cajun/Viet matrix to the max, just come on down to the docks, and you'd feel right at home.

As I say, America is a civic inheritance, not one of blood or territory.

You embrace it, then you are an American, regardless of race or origin.

Reject it, then you are not an American, no matter how pale you are or if you can trace ancestry to the Mayflower.

440 Got caught up, finally, to my own comments, and saw they were two in a row and just about the end of the thread.

I can read the writing on the wall screen - it's time to give up on the day and sleep until the new one rolls in.

Been fun lurkin' on all the discussion. What a crew.

-o♥o-

My friend, we are all Jonahs with lives to live in accordance with the will of God, and at all times when we seek to escape the present duty of living by running away to far-off enticements, we thereby put ourselves in the immediate control of those influences which are not directed by the powers of truth and the forces of righteousness. The flight from duty is the sacrifice of truth....
