Overnight Open Thread (6-9-2016)

Quote of the Day I

The friendly catalog-based clothing retailer known for unimaginative (I say classic), rarely updated (I say tradition-minded), boxy (I say unconstraining) apparel is these days in the grip of a fashion-forward Italian CEO named Federica Marchionni, and here the error of Lands' End's current path becomes apparent. Lands' End is based in Dodgeville, Wisconsin, and should not be run by an Italian, someone who is fashion-forward or, especially, someone named Federica. Lands' End is as unpretentious as a Ford-150. It should be run by someone named Mitch or Phil, and, no, I do not mean Mitchell and especially not Phillippe.

Marchionni is given to describing the company's proudly fashion-backward line as "ugly" and asks in meetings, "Who would wear that?" Dark rumors abound that Lands' End will be buying ads in the September issue of Vogue, that celebrity photographer Bruce Weber will be doing shoots for its products, that weird-looking asymmetrical dresses that appear to have been splattered with blood by abstract expressionists will be the new focus of the company's line.

This is as dire a situation as Budweiser being bought by Belgians. Indeed, it's far worse; it's as though Budweiser stopped making beer and reintroduced itself as an appletini manufacturer. Marchionni, whose previous bonehead attempt to inject sophistication was to ally the brand with leftist politics, must be fired immediately before Lands' End turns into some sort of hideous would-be Pucci of Wisconsin.

-- Kyle Smith in Fashion Elitism and the Zoolander-ization of Lands' End

Quote of the Day II

Venezuela, cried Seumas Milne in the Guardian, has "redistributed wealth and power, rejected western neoliberal orthodoxy, and challenged imperial domination." What more could a breathless Western punter ask for? Never underestimate the power worship of those who claim to speak for the powerless, or the credulity of the supposedly wised-up critical theorist. [...] The show is over now. Their fantasies fulfilled, the western tourists have left a ruined country behind without a guilty glance over their shoulder. Venezuela looks as if it has been pillaged by a hostile army, though there has been no war.

-- Nick Cohen

Academia Delenda Est - Part XIII

Students and faculty at Northwestern University have forced Karl Eikenberry - a retired three-star general and fellow at Stanford University's Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies - to withdraw his appointment as head of a new global affairs institute on the Evanston campus on the grounds that he is a "career military officer."

The Washington Post's report on the story contains a truly remarkable, and telling, quote from one student involved in the crusade against the general (who has contributed to this magazine):

"An ex-U.S. general will likely think about international politics in terms of war and from the perspective of the U.S.'s interests, and the research agenda will be negatively skewed as a result," wrote Charles Clarke, a Northwestern graduate student and one of the petition's backers. "Instead, why not appoint someone who will encourage research that is less belligerent and tainted by U.S. bias?"

The petitions condemning the selection of the general display a barely-concealed antagonism toward people who serve the United States in uniform (as Eikenberry told the Post, "This is the worst stereotyping I can imagine and an affront to any veteran"), as well as a snide arrogance toward intellectuals who stray from the academic path. Eikenberry has two master's degrees, unparalleled experience in leadership and public service, a host of publications, and years of academic experience at Stanford and elsewhere.

Does Tenure Work?

Short answer: No. As predicted by human nature 101.

The results are most consistent with academics increasing effort over time up to the tenure year, and reducing their efforts thereafter. Further, the reduction in effort is not driven by reducing the number of lower quality publications, and focusing upon higher quality work. Instead, it appears that academics can exert effort toward both quantity and quality, and reduce both post-tenure.

Are Ethics Professors Good People?

No. But then they're no worse than other professors.

Ethicists do not appear to behave better. Never once have we found ethicists as a whole behaving better than our comparison groups of other professors, by any of our main planned measures. But neither, overall, do they seem to behave worse. (There are some mixed results for secondary measures.) For the most part, ethicists behave no differently from professors of any other sort - logicians, chemists, historians, foreign-language instructors.

Nonetheless, ethicists do embrace more stringent moral norms on some issues, especially vegetarianism and charitable donation. Our results on vegetarianism were particularly striking. In a survey of professors from five US states, we found that 60 per cent of ethicist respondents rated 'regularly eating the meat of mammals, such as beef or pork' somewhere on the 'morally bad' side of a nine-point scale ranging from 'very morally bad' to 'very morally good'. By contrast, only 19 per cent of non-philosophy professors rated it as bad. That's a pretty big difference of opinion! Non-ethicist philosophers were intermediate, at 45 per cent.

But they do seem good at hypocrisy:

But when asked later in the survey whether they had eaten the meat of a mammal at their last evening meal, we found no statistically significant difference in the groups' responses - about 38 per cent of professors from all groups reported having done so (including 37 per cent of ethicists).

...Ethicists espoused the most stringent norms [on percentage of income to give to charity]: their average recommendation was 7 per cent, compared with 5 per cent for the other two groups. However, ethicists did not report having given a greater percentage of income to charity than the non-philosophers (4 per cent for both groups).

New Fake But Accurate Statistic: Half of All Male College Athletes Are Rapists

Related: Send Your Daughters to Prison - For Their Own Safety

The Obama administration has produced new statistics on prison rape which, taken in conjunction with its widespread claims about college campuses, imply that women and even men are safer from rape in prison than they are on college campuses. In a recent report from the White House states that 8.5 percent of female inmates and 3.7 percent of male inmates experience sexual assault while in prison.

...After all, the Obama administration loves to tout deeply flawed self-reported surveys showing 20 percent of women and 5 to 8 percent of men are sexually assaulted on college campuses over a four-year college career. This would mean that men are twice as likely and women nearly three times as likely to be raped on a college campus as they are in prison.

Why The Campus Madness Matters

Liberal norms are fragile, and once they start to fray anywhere in our society there is a risk that the decay will spread. This is especially true when the institutions under threat are responsible for molding the minds of the next generation of norm-setting elites.

And it's not just about free speech: As we've noted before, some of the authoritarian sex codes first pioneered on campuses a generation ago have suddenly come roaring into the mainstream. If a generation from now we find ourselves living in a world where shouting down speakers is a widely accepted strategy of political engagement, small-l liberals of all political stripes will have wished that they engaged the campus problem earlier and more forcefully.

USAF: Drained and Worn Out

Few people realize it, but the U.S. Air Force has been at war for 25 years.  Beginning with Operation Desert Storm in January 1991 and continuing through the current conflict against ISIS, the USAF has been continuously deployed, enduring an exhaustive operations tempo that has taken its toll on aircraft and personnel.

And, making matters worse, the Air Force is much smaller than it was a quarter-century ago.  Many of the squadrons that took the fight to Saddam have been inactivated; their aircraft now sit in the "Boneyard" at Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson, baking in the Arizona sun.  Thousands of airmen who flew, maintained or supported those aircraft have moved on as well; the service has trimmed more than 100,000 personnel from its ranks over the past 25 years, and sequestration-mandated cuts have accelerated that trend.

...Overall, the Air Force has 30% fewer airmen, 40% fewer aircraft and 60% fewer fighter squadrons than it did 25 years ago.  The average "age" of a USAF aircraft is 27; many are older than the pilots who fly them and the maintenance troops than maintain them. 

Responding to a query from FNC, Pentagon press spokesman Peter Cook was asked if Defense Secretary Ash Carter believed the maintenance and budget issues affecting flying units was widespread.  "No, I don't think so," Mr. Cook replied.  He claims the issue has been discussed "at length" and is being addressed. 

That exchange probably left a lot of Air Force commanders scratching their heads.  If talk equated action, then every squadron in the USAF would have a Fully Mission Capable (FMC) rate approaching 100%.  But the reality is reflected in those numbers at Ellsworth, Shaw and virtually every other Air Force installation.

The bullshit campus rape statistics are based on bullshit surveys that classify everything from actual rape to being inadvertently but unwantedly brushed up against on the dance floor to being subject to Rapey Male Gaze (TM) as rape, so it's all bullshit. Actual local crime statistics routinely show that the bullshit campus rape statistics are bullshit.

158 The results are most consistent with academics increasing effort over time up to the tenure year, and reducing their efforts thereafter. Further, the reduction in effort is not driven by reducing the number of lower quality publications, and focusing upon higher quality work. Instead, it appears that academics can exert effort toward both quantity and quality, and reduce both post-tenure.


OK, semi-contrarian perspective here.

First, it's not possible to increase - or even maintain - the same level of effort post-tenure as it is in the run up to tenure. When I was going for tenure, I put in 80 hour weeks. (Arriving at 8 am, leaving at midnight, go home, eat dinner, sleep. Rinse. Lather. Repeat. For five years.) That's not uncommon, at least in the sciences (in the bigs, at any rate), and it's simply not an indefinitely sustainable pace. It's hard enough when you're 30; think associates at law firms, residents in hospitals. Once I was asked what I did in my spare time: "Sleep."

Second, the quality of publications is difficult to quantify, but most scientists do their most important work young. (Certainly true in my case.) Why? Fresh brains and all that is one explanation, but another is more prosaic: when you're young, people leave you alone, because you don't matter, so you have lots of uninterrupted time. When you're established, you have a zillion demands on your time: committee crap, teaching crap, administrative crap, hustling research money crap, reviewing manuscripts crap, reviewing grant proposal crap, dealing with grad and undergrad student crap, meeting crap, and oh yeah, trying to find time to be creative. Imagine trying to figure out your income taxes when someone interrupts you every ten minutes, for ten minutes, and you have picture. Some do it, but the system places a lot of impediments in the way.

167 Lands' End is going SJW? Where the f am I supposed to buy clothing now?

I remember Abercrombie & Fitch as a stolid, reliable brand, the first place you would go for a sturdy trunk that would survive your jaunt to uncivilized regions, and some nice British Colonial style clothes that would survive the humidity. The last time I looked in the door of one, there was some sort of dry-ice mist, and some dude standing there with his shirt off, showing off his six pack.

Free clue: heterosexual men do not have fashion. They have clothing.

Im the griller in this house but Ive made all those mistakes.

I went to Abercrombie and Fitch in NYC and couldn't afford anything but a bourbon cake in a tin, but it was a real destination. (btw, the old trick for us tourists who took our little kids to FAO Schwartz back then was to tell them that it was a museum, and nothing was for sale.)

At a deposition a friend of mine watched as a honcho with a zillion publications confidently took a position diametrically opposed to that in a paper on which the honcho was a co-author. When confronted with the paper, he blanched, doing his Casper the Ghost impression, and looked like he was about to stroke out.


Turns out he had never read the paper, and was totally unaware of its existence.

They also once produced "Path to Paradise" about the first WTC bombing. It ends with the chilling, prophetic scene of Ramzi Yusef promising to knock them both down next time.

HBO would never, ever, ever make something like that again.

253 SMFH....much as I've sold roofing the past five years, I just don't care for the repairs side of the ladder.

General handyman work? I'm pretty damn good, there. Not much I can't fix, or make.

But an increasingly busted up body and closing in on 60, it's just not as easy as it used to be.

I do like how you're layering the income streams though. If you don't mind, I might wanna pick your mind on the writing of ads for contractors. Because most of the ones down here, seem to need that help, too.

Here's another income stream that'll compliment your rifle builds. Get the right equipment, and build a small route doing mobile knife sharpening. A lot of restaurants need the service, and even a lot of properly trained chefs don't bother with a proper bevel or care, between whacks on the butcher's steel.

Two to five dollars a blade, and more if some bozo wants a machete or sword done. Also, adds up.

Who cares whether programmers have a Mr. Happy? Yeah, not that many girls are good at that, and not that many want to do it. So?

263 Ha! My daughter and SIL bought a house in the burbs from an Asian woman equipped with that exact toilet. They love it! There was also a weird water purification appliance which got repossessed after they moved in. The rest of the house was a shit show, for half a million bucks. They had to spend who knows how many thousands of dollars just to make it livable. They did much better with it than I could have imagined. Mid- century.

It mainly centres on Fetisov and I was wondering that while he and others described how crappy it was even as stars in the USSR, that he wouldn't directly attack the system. And while making pro-Russian people remarks I could see; I didn't understand not attacking the system even after the KGB beat him up over a stretch of hours when he quite the Red Army team. Then SPOILER ALERT you discover in the last 20 minutes or so that he's Putin's Minister of Sports!

That's full-sized, is it? Because if it's a "compact pickup," then you're marketing to lesbians, and I can't help you. But let's suppose it's full sized. Then you're marketing to guys. It's about superiority. Whatever it has, compared to its comparably-priced competition, that goes front and center. Torque, horsepower, anything about chassis toughness, towing capacity.

If you don't have that, just show it towing some impossible-seeming load, like a newly-cut-down old-growth redwood (environmentalists don't buy the things anyway).

When Marchionni started and wasn't required to live in Dodgeville < Wisconsin but allowed to stay in NYC, I knew they had a prima dona.
When the Gloria Steinem collection was released I stop buying from them and told them why.

Now I get online coupons for 50-60 % off. I just emailed that when they have a true conservative icon have a collection featured I'll come back...crickets. (Can't offend liberals)

The company financials are in the toilet and I know why...you forgot your core buyer.

There is an old story about a guy who was reputed to be the world's greatest salesman. All his former employers raved about him, so this department store decided to give him a shot.



At the end of the guy's first day, his supervisor finds him and asks him how many sales he had made that day. When the salesman replied, "one," the supervisor sends the payroll department a memo to begin preparing a final check. Before the check is ready, the Sales Manager busts into the Supervisor's office and says, "that new guy is a ball of f'in' FIRE!!! If only we could get more like him."



Stunned, the Supervisor stammers, "but he only made one sale....." Now it's the Manager's turn to be flustered -- "what? On his first day on the job he bettered last month's total sales! How can this be from only one sale?"



So, they call the salesman into the Supervisor's office for questioning.



Supervisor: "How many sales did you make today?" Salesman: "One." Manager: "What the hell did you sell him?" Salesman: "Well, let's see....there was the boat, the trailer, the new truck, the picnic supplies, the electronics, top-of-the-line sportfishing tackle, safety gear, teak polish, a propane grill....." Manager: "This guy came in looking to buy all of that?" Salesman: "Errr, not exactly."




Supervisor: "What did the guy come in to buy?" Salesman: "A box of tampons." Flat silence as the Manager and Supervisor stare, slack-jawed.



Salesman: "I got to talking to the guy and mentioned that, since it was obvious he wasn't getting-any this weekend, he might as well go fishing."



Focus on the customer. Why should the customer want what you're selling?

My dad told me a completely different story about business. There was a man with a hare lip, who due to his appearance and voice, couldn't land a job no matter what. A cousin finally took pity on him and hired him at a company that made toothbrushes, as a salesman. The first day, he comes in, gets a box, and leaves. The next day he comes back for two boxes. Within a week, he's up to ten boxes. Everyone's astounded at his success, and he quickly earns promotions. After several years, he becomes the most successful salesman in the company's history, and is made a vice president, and they finally ask him what was his secret to success.

"Find a supermarket, first you get your chips, then you get your dip, then way down at the other end of the table, you set up your toothbrushes. A customer walks up and takes a chip, tries the dip, and goes "This dip tastes like shit!". That's when you go "It is shit! Would you like to buy a toothbrush?"

358 SMFH. Some good contenders in the ad ideas, here. Couple ideas to be stolen, with all due attribution.

Remember this though. Ford will insist on:

* fambly OK w/ ad.

* no excess regionalism. It's OK to tout a Texas truck. won't be OK to trash OKLAHOMA in so doing though.

* they'll love SOME humor, but want to exude class, refinement, intelligence.

* and KEEP IT SIMPLE. one or two messages per script/spot, will be all they'll want. (not counting subliminal imaging or very sly phrasing)


You can take my points to the bank, those will be good parameters to work with, regardless of the other posters (mostly, very good!) ideas and concepts.

373 Zeatta,

The whole point of a King Ranch, Platinum, Harley Davidson edition or other maker's top end trucks, is this.

You can go and do all the truck things with it, if you wish.

But you can also pull up to the Ruth's Chris, toss the keys to the valet, who might just park your ride out front "to show".

I've seen many a BMW 7 series parked in generic valet, while some shined up Cowboy Cadillac sits in pride of place at the marquee spot.

Plus, the Mrs. won't feel like she's "slumming it" when riding in a truck that costs as much as some houses, and provides luxury competitive with a Lexus or Lincoln in the bargain.

389 Hello, Horde!

I've been filling in on the morning shift at the radio station, which has meant getting up at 3 a.m. to get ready for the show's start at 6.

I've had no trouble getting to sleep early...until tonight.

MisHum...CW Jr. is visiting his mom in the Midwest, whom he reports has turned into a flaming lib...all about Bernie and the wage gap, etc. He actually told her, "You used to have more common sense than that." And that's when the fight started....

He's supposed to be there until the end of July. I hope they don't kill each other.

395 358 SMFH. Some good contenders in the ad ideas, here. Couple ideas to be stolen, with all due attribution.

Remember this though. Ford will insist on:

* fambly OK w/ ad.

* no excess regionalism. It's OK to tout a Texas truck. won't be OK to trash OKLAHOMA in so doing though.

* they'll love SOME humor, but want to exude class, refinement, intelligence.

* and KEEP IT SIMPLE. one or two messages per script/spot, will be all they'll want. (not counting subliminal imaging or very sly phrasing)


You can take my points to the bank, those will be good parameters to work with, regardless of the other posters (mostly, very good!) ideas and concepts.

418 Hmm, that thing on Russia having a window to grab the Baltics made as much sense as I expected. The site (Weaponsman) is very good, and he's just linking/tossing out the topic, the article was written by a Danish general.


Anyway, no sale. Not even looking at the brochure.


The central predicate is obviously true - an utterly feckless US, and Europe/NATO. But it still seems extremely unlikely Putin would do anything that might provoke a serious or even hot confrontation - there's simply no reason for something like that.


Ukraine is different, very different. Pushing around/grabbing both areas is (not insanely) seen as "defensive" by Moscow, but Ukraine is a fundamental interest (and Russia correctly calculated they can get away with almost anything there, to include shooting down civilian airliners). The Baltics are a fairly minor annoyance by comparison.

My mentor in philosophy, politics, culture, and life was a distinguished professor of philosophy.

I recall being tasked by him with intercepting the student evaluations of his ethics course. I was to take them to the bathroom in the basement of the School of Theology, remove the unfavorable ones, slip in a few good ones we'd ginned up earlier, and deliver them - seals intact - to the Dean.

I did all of this, of course, and without question. We talked about it later.

"Was that unethical, what you did?"

"Yes, sir, it was."

"But you did it anyway. Why?"

"Because it was the right thing to do."

"Ahh," he said, "honor and loyalty. Yes, my boy, never let your sense of ethics keep you from doing the right thing."

As he used to say, "You don't have to be a Chicagoan to tell people how to get there."

448 SMFH,

Just saw your call for help upthread. I don't know if you've ever written ads before, but here's my method:

Start with the Unique Selling Proposition for the truck...what's the ONE thing that sets that particular model apart from the rest? That's your hook.

Sell the benefits, not the features. Tell the listener what the truck will do for them.

Always include the "call to action": "Get your Ford King Ranch edition TODAY at XYZ Ford.

After you have all that, then write your "headline"...the opening line that draws them in. This can take a lot of different forms.

At the end, include a callback...a rephrasing of your headline. Repetition matters.

Hope that helps.

456 Before baby formula, which came in the early 20th century, there used to be a profession really called "wet nursing". This was a woman who nursed another woman's child.

The upper class women used to loathe breast feeding their children, and hired wet nurses to do it. A royal wet nurse was a privileged job indeed.

But, in general, if a woman couldn't breast feed for various reasons, her infant would die if a wet nurse wasn't available.

The ability to produce milk without pregnacy is thought to be an evolutionary advantage, which was selected for. Other primates and mammals can do this as well.

467 Yeah, lactose intolerance in adulthood is the norm for mammals, and humans are a special case. It is thought this was some oddball trait way back that got selected for. The ability to continue to drink milk and its products (cheese, butter, etc) allowed those genes to out propagate those who couldn't, due to some food stress or something back in the prehistory days, or whenever it was.

515 There used to be something, in some cultures, called "milk kinship", involving wet nurses. The woman who nursed you as a baby was a special person, a sort of family like thing, and you had a relationship with her children and family members somehow because of it.

Interestingly they say the limit is about five babies. One healthy woman could nurse up to five children, which is the limit for human milk production. I am sure that would be quite a chore for a woman to attempt that, but that's what the max is.

Of course, with dozens of women, the places were clean on day one, before lunch, but he'd pay them all anyway, 'A deal is a deal, and it's not their fault they did a good job.'

Best of luck in your genealogy research.

My grandmother remembered visiting relatives in Chicago when she was very young. By the time she was old enough to drive herself, she had forgotten names & streets, etc.

Probably the second or third best thing that ever happened to me.

(But, yeah, Texas has got some genealogy that is mind-boggling to outsiders. My best friend is a dude named for a Persian Emperor - everybody thinks he's an Arab or something, only he's too tall. Got the profile of a recruiting poster for the SS, with copper skin, dark, thick hair, and he's almost 7 feet tall. Calls himself a 'beaner-schnitzel' - mom was Texas German, dad was from an old Tex-Mex family.)

552 On a completely unrelated note, I took my car in to get smogged and was told that it couldn't be tested because the exhaust system was swiss cheese. Being that my closest mechanic loves to make like car knowledge is only available to the anointed, and after watching YouTube videos that made everything look straightforward except working under a car without a lift, I decided to find a muffler shop. Found one in San Jose on Monterey Highway -- yelpers raved about him.




Asked him for a quote yesterday -- quite reasonable. Asked him about using OEM parts, which somehow ended up as confusing....then thought, "screw it", and told him, "just do it."



I now know why the idea of OEM parts went crossways, why yelpers love the guy, and why the guy is so reasonable.



Y'know the Moron who is making the wildly complicated stair-rail? This guy is like that with exhausts. He doesn't use OEM parts, he doesn't use specs -- he has a tube-bending machine and custom one-offs exhaust systems by hand. I looked at mine after he was done and just ogled it. I opined that there was some complicated bending in one stretch and he proudly pointed out that it had to be that way to dodge a little crossways pipe. There are no flanges or gaskets -- it's all tricky bending and welding. I've got a little one-off work of art under my car tonight that wasn't there this morning.



Guys name is John at SpeeDee Muffler on Monterey Highway in San Jose. You won't get a Ford part or a Toyota part or a Honda part -- you'll pay less for a hand-crafted replacement that is likely to last longer.



Oh, and one more thing -- once you understand what he's doing, the next amazing thing is how fast he does it. He can fabricate an exhaust system from resonators, tubes, and a muffler faster than you can find the part number online. My job took about an hour and 20 minutes and replaced four "genuine Honda" parts, with three fewer gaskets.

572 Home is good. Even when it's a disaster, it's still home.

--♦--

It's Family Reunion Weekend.

The big party is Saturday, spilling over into Sunday, over at my cousin's place on the lake.

Some of the clan, mostly Mom's brother's family from Alaska, are already down at my Mom's, where we plan to be tomorrow. So we can get good and sick of everybody before the party even starts.

Just kidding. I like that side of the family. Most of 'em. Solid, hard working folk - they could almost be Oklahomans!

Mom's been busy fixing up the place for the influx of guests. Naturally, she ended up with One Ginormous Project.

Seems that she discovered ruined, moldy floors in the bar, behind her kitchen desk, and under the kitchen cabinets, all one big common-wall area.

It was presumed a leaking water line to the ice machine was the cause of the problem...

Spent weeks getting everything pulled out and running fans to dry everything out. Finally, barely in time for her guests, she got people in to replace what wood needed replacing, re-tiling the bar floor, and so on.

Last thing was re-installing the ice maker. Took several "experts." One said before they could re-install the machine, it needed a gasket. (?) Another said it didn't need a gasket. (!)

Finally, a real plumber said, you know, the condensation from this thing just drains out onto the floor.... (!!!!)

Contacted the guy who'd put the machine in years before, and he said, oh, yeah, that's right. I thought you wanted it that way!

So, the damage had been going on practically since the thing was installed.

My sister the lawyer has been toting up the damages and considering action.

--♦--

Most amazing thing was how neat Mom managed to keep the house while all this was going on. I didn't get that chromosome.

Well, that was uncharacteristically nasty....I'm probably more guilty of "fake prayers" than Slapweasel -- as I've often mentioned, I tend more to the Agnostic's Prayer referenced in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Creatures_of_Light_and_Darkness #The_Agnostic.27s_Prayer . But I do try.



And I try because those who pray and try to build up seem like so much better people than those who ridicule prayer and try to tear down. Their towns are better towns, their societies are better societies, and their blogs are better blogs.



So I try to pray sometimes, and sometimes I try to compose prayers that people with stronger or weaker faith than I can say "Amen" with. And I appreciate Slapweasel saying things that I might not, myself, say.....but which I can append an "Amen.'



I understand that you and Slapweasel have some sort of feud -- but attacking Slapweasel's prayers brings in a lot of collateral damage to those of us, imperfect, who seek the greater good.

This connects to "fake prayers" how? Look, hate him all you want; nail him for "fake assurances", call him an asshole in however many ways you deem fit.



And, BTW, I only noted that he had quoted emails TO you with your personal information redacted. His words do not cease to be his words once sent to you.



I seriously do not wish to be a party to this clusterfark and cherish you both in your non-feuding personas.....but you should know that attacking the validity of someone's prayers is, shall we say, sketchy -- and claiming control of another's words because they were once addressed to you is a non-starter.



Cite one occasion when he quoted YOUR words after pledging to erase them, and I'll readily concede the point.....for what it's worth, being that this won't be judged by the HQ by a jury of Morons.

597 Oh, and one more thing -- once you understand what he's doing, the next amazing thing is how fast he does it. He can fabricate an exhaust system from resonators, tubes, and a muffler faster than you can find the part number online. My job took about an hour and 20 minutes and replaced four "genuine Honda" parts, with three fewer gaskets.

What you are describing is about par for custom exhaust shops, and some of the better-run outlets of the big chains. Custom-bending pipes, and welding joints means they don't have to carry such a big inventory of parts.

I replied that we were rapidly moving toward an economy where the only American labor was doing lapdances -- and I'd only appeal to a very select market.

Don't attack prayer -- and if you're going to accuse him on the blog of misusing your personal info, don't just quote his using his words with your personal info redacted. The first makes you look contemptuous; the second makes you look intellectually dishonest. You can have a valid, legitimate beef with him without either.

I deleted her emails, but I never deleted the stuff in the "sent emails" area.

I promised her that I would delete everything, but I was negligent because I never get emails in that back-channel address.

Slapweasel can effectively ask us to stop defending attacks against him. You also attacked "those who pray" and "logic". You haven't continued your attacks on the prayerful, which is a good sign -- though you have neither repudiated such attacks nor apologized. You have continued to attack the logical, in personal, vituperative ways. I am repulsed and offended by your behavior and have emailed quotes from your posts to Ace and Maet that should justify your banning, including @658. If you can find something I have posted that is 1/100 as vile, feel free to send it to TPTB and request that I be banned.

747 I was prescribed vit D a few years ago. I felt almost an immediate lifting of mood after the first couple of doses. YMMV

759 I've got a line on a decent riding mower. Only 150 bucks! It has a broken spindle on the mower deck, and a worn drive belt. The kit to replace both spindles, both blades, and drive belt is only 70 dollars. 15.5 HP Craftsman, hydrostatic drive, (which works fine), 42 inch deck, good battery, and recently serviced.

If so, good deal.

I have a stylish, and jaunty hat which holds two cans of beer at the same time.

Not at the moment. We don't own a truck, so it's either ask friends, or pay to have it delivered.

My only concern is that it has a 'consumer grade' transaxle...which means no external filter, and no way to drain/refill it. Lack of filter means any contamination that finds it's way inside, circulates forever, and eventually destroys the pump.

Posted by: Sticky Wicket at June 10, 2016 07:41 AM (i2t8l)

767 Well, it is $150.00, plus repair parts. Any way to backfit an external filter housing and tie into the hydraulics?

I want one of those! In fuschia to match my trusty crossbow.

Crossbow and beer hat- I will be the envy of all this summer.

772 It's possible to drill, and tap a drain hole in the bottom, and it does have a removable plug on top which is used to fill it when new. I've read up on the procedure, and it's fairly straightforward. It can take a while to completely refill it, and thoroughly purge it of air. This requires elevating the drive wheels off the ground, and cycling slowly between forward, and reverse. Then shutting if off, removing the fill plug, adding more oil, rinse/repeat.

It should be possible to add an external filter too....though the device isn't designed to accommodate one. I might look to see if I can swap it out for a commercial grade transaxle, which has all that already in place.

773 'Venezuela looks as if it has been pillaged by a hostile army, though there has been no war."

"Don't be deceived because you are not hearing the sound of gunfire, because even so you are fighting for your lives. And you're fighting against the best organized and the most capable enemy of freedom and of right and decency that has ever been abroad in the world."--Ronald Reagan, Your America To Be Free, 1957

And we still are.
