Overnight Open Thread (16 Jul 2016)

Heh. Facebook in hot water over poor workplace diversity excuse.

Southern Border

Admiral cites concern of Islamic radicalization in Latin America.

In a Southern Command briefing with Stars and Stripes this month, officials said the Islamic State group online publication Dabiq said that human-smuggling networks could be used to move its members, though there are no clear indication that fighters have successfully gained entry into the U.S. this way.

Well it only took a few years before someone used their drive a truck plan through a crowd of people so it's only a matter of time before they use these smuggling networks to gain entry. Of course, they don't have to go this route when we're just taking in 10's of thousands of refugees. We're letting them in through the front door.

The attack in Nice shows cars and trucks can be powerful weapons of terror. Ya think? I did find this little nugget down near the end of the article.

The driver was armed with a pistol and shot at police before he was killed. The ownership of firearms faces strict legal restrictions in France, though smugglers exploiting Europe's open borders have created a thriving black market for guns.

Question for open borders and gun control types. How are your gun control dreams going to work when you work to not secure our borders?

Gender Wars

Please make it stop. This is beyond ridiculous. Connecticut officially redefines all language dealing with "gender".

First of all, LGBT is no longer in play. Now you'll need to sign up for LGBTQI. (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning & Intersex.) And there's plenty more beyond that.

Gayby: (Pronounced Gay-Bee) the child or children of a gay couple or individual.
Homophobic propaganda: propaganda based on homo-negativity and homophobia towards homosexual and sometimes other non-heterosexual people.
Gender gifted: a person whose capacity for gender expression exceeds the binary.


Gun Play

The Story of Bad Angel

Great story about a Bad Angel. In the image above, you can see an American flag in the kills section. This is the story of how that happened.

Military Fashion

A US military supplier has become one of the most sought-after brands in fashion. I think I might get one of the MA-1 Blood Chit flight jackets from A-1 Industries.

7-Layer Klondike Lasagna

Playboy Model

She should be charged. LAPD investigating after Playboy model allegedly posts body-shaming photo secretly shot at L.A. gym. Sounds like she's already claiming the Hillary defense.

Headline Follies

I guess you can't print accurate headlines if it offends someone. Memphis newspaper apologizes for accurate, yet 'racist' headline.

Turkish Cat

Heh. Cat becomes social media hero during coup in Turkey.

state's Department of Children and Families has released a new glossary of terms designed to help you navigate the new world of transgender sensibilities

I could never teach my dog to play frisbee. She would catch it, run away, lay down and start chewing. Also, tennis. If the ball hit the net, she was on the court in a flash, grabbed the ball and wd run away. She did play bounce or fly and really loved it. Sometimes she wd catch it on a fly and the ball wd wedge to tightly in her mouth and I would have to run over and pull it out. But boy did she love that game.

24 Re: the Admiral worried about islamification

I've said for a couple of years that we are in WW3 (took a while for people to realize in the last two and 30 years to *really* get going in the Civil War) because the world is fighting muslim attacks on all the inhabited continents besides South America. Why not S America? Because a number of south and central American nations have allied themselves with the muslims. They want *so* badly to see the US taken down a peg that they ally themselves with a monster, thinking they will be able to either control it or go their separate ways when done. Proving they're fools.

That was rude since Trotsky lived right around the corner. If they openly supported Stalin, then they openly supported Trotsky's assassination.

43 This demonstrates something important. The femiNazi theory is that it is us men who make women conform to all these standards of beauty and do the "body shaming" and all that.

Nope, it is women that do that to each other. They are the ones who define and enforce this stuff, and always have been.

So you have the most important stuff that was on the memory stick?


You know, it occurred to me there might be a market for a "thumb drive cloner". Envision a "Y" connector that looks like it allows two thumb drives to plugged into a USB port. But within it is hardware that presents to the system as a single thumb drive, but which writes to two identical thumb drives simultaneously. And which would not allow writing to only one of the drives, thus forcing you to make duplicate backups.


Add some hardware encryption to the device, and you'd have quite a nifty little data protection system.

73 Warcraft the movie has lousy reviews, too bad.

I remember buying Warcraft 1. I am convinced that the key to selling games is great cover art. This game was the first big RTS. The cinematic were really rough and suffered from all the problems of 1990s cgi, but the story-telling was ambitious. And they were constantly improving year after year. Until they were regularly putting out gorgeous scenes for three different franchises.

C47's were simple transports, AKA DC3. Since they were often used to evacuate wounded, or carry medics, they probably could not be armed, under the Geneva Conventions. At any rate, arming them would make them a legitimate military target. The Japanese didn't honor the Geneva Conventions, but any Japanese commander that ordered shooting down an unarmed plane might be subject to war crimes trial?

Most operating systems already know how to do that. It's software RAID mirroring the two drives. Such is better suited to permanently connected drives than removables but it wouldn't be hard to create something suitable.

Really, cheap flash drives should only be used as transport rather than backup. If the data is really important, optical discs are very cheap in quantity and burning a disc nightly is simpler than trying to get clever with multiple USB drives. Even 25GB BD-Rs can be as little as 25 cents each if you buy a big spindle.

262 I belong to one of those "Maker Clubs", and an elderly member recently passed away. His son is selling all the stuff out of his workshop, so I went over there with a bunch of the guys.



It wasn't very long ago the guy was keen and aware, vivacious and active. Now he's gone. I got some random things -- chiefly pipe thread taps and dies -- but I got one box of tubing benders, cutters, and stuff because a little tubing flare tool that had his initials engraved on it. I know that I'm sentimental enough to think, "yeah, that's the guy from the club" every time I see it....and have him live just a bit in my memory -- even though my defective brain won't remember his name.



The guys picking through his stuff were in one way ruthless -- everyone cherry-picked what they found valuable. But they also were there because they shared his ethic -- he'd been cherrypicking for decades to amass such a hoard. There were oddities like a powered hacksaw tucked-away in an odd corner -- or the bending machine stacked high with other gizmos on the counter. We spent hours there, with his son, rummaging through his shop, and never said a thing about our shared loss.




We could all have noted how much more we would have valued just one more month with our friend than anything from his shop....but we didn't need to say it. We knew.

Most operating systems already know how to do that. It's
software RAID mirroring the two drives. Such is better suited to
permanently connected drives than removables but it wouldn't be hard to
create something suitable.

Really, cheap flash drives should
only be used as transport rather than backup. If the data is really
important, optical discs are very cheap in quantity and burning a disc
nightly is simpler than trying to get clever with multiple USB drives.
Even 25GB BD-Rs can be as little as 25 cents each if you buy a big
spindle.

The problem is that the USB standard is so retarded that sticks can be infected under conditions where even disks can't; and further can infect OSs where disks couldn't. There's a reason STUXNET used thumbdrives as an infection vector.

290 The Late Show with Stephen Colbert *also* got themselves in some trouble just recently (a few weeks ago), with regard to writing staff.

The executive producers actually put out, on the web, an open call for writers to 'audition' by sending in material. *But...* they were demanding a literal shit ton of samples, in order to be considered: an opening bit, an ending bit, an amusing band intro, a funny 5-minute monologue, a sketch, etc etc etc...

It struck a lot of people, even Colbert fans, as trolling for free material from fresh new writers who don't have any clout or even representation.

294 Wilbur Mills was, and is still is, the longest "serving" Member of the House. He was Chairman of Ways and Means from '58 - '74.

The Argentinia firecracker was named Fannie Foxx. The Park Police stopped his car back in '74, because he, drunk, had failed to turn on his headlights. Fannie Foxx was in there with him, and she jumped out into the nearby Tidal Basin to try to get away. They took her to the psych ward.

That was right near the election, and he still won with 60% of the vote in his Arkansas district.

In late Nov that same year, Mills held a press conference from Fannie's dressing room after appearing on stage at Fannie's burlesque house.

He stepped down as Ways and Means Chairman, then entered treatment for alcoholism. He didn't run in '76. He died in '92

312 She spelled her name several ways, seeming to end with Fanne Foxe.
She billed herself as the "The Argentine Firecracker", but after the Tidal Basin incident with Mills, changed it to "The Tidal Basin Bombshell".

Taking advantage of the infamy, she was able to up her stage fee greatly and went around the country. She was arrested in Orlando for indecent exposure, along with the owner of the club. The judge dismissed the charges on insufficient evidence that she went totally nude.

She retired after that. She's still alive at 80, and she is the Number Three mistress in the Top Ten Mistresses.

319 Here's an idea for a novel/comic book/movie series, if some enterprising Moron author wants to run with it: Crusader. A super-hero who was a Knight Templar back in the Middle Ages. The sudden extinguishing of so many innocent lives in the fall of the towers on 9/11 somehow opened a portal to the Underworld, and Crusader pops through it, and once having been brought up to speed on 21st Century technology, resumes his old career of killing jihadis. He is unkillable because, Hey! he's already dead.


Having gone through the Portal, he has an instinctive understanding of how it works, and can exploit it to bring other famous Crusaders back...el Cid, Charles Martel, Vlad Tepes...much fun to be had. And of course, make it as politically incorrect as all get-out, depicting muzzies as knuckle-dragging beasts, etc.

334 Mimzey, I've heard good things about Burr too.

It's also a cryin' shame that Dennis Miller probably won't ever get to headline a regular show again, because of his relationship/closeness with people like Bill O'Reilly. He truly is witty and funny.

OTOH I wonder sometimes if it isn't healthier for conservative comedians to have to stay on "the edge" somewhat. It keeps them angry, observant, on their toes. It seems like so many conservatives who *have* made it big in showbiz, like Kelsey Grammer, end up having to keep their mouths permanently shut to keep working (or, they go completely soft on the issues).

338 Any of the gunships, from the C-47 to today's C-130 Spectre.... would still be defenseless against a P-51 or any other fighter.

Unless they can get into a flight attitude with said fighter being about thirty degrees below their port side, with the geometries of motion allowing sufficient lead, or other relative convergence of the guns' trajectories vs. the fighter's position in space, motion and time.

That'd be a helluva trick, right there, I think.

Why does another animal have to be killed because of the stupidity of one person? We are staying over the animal’s domain.

Is our only solution to kill all of them? What next, if someone wants my home?

Do they have the right to kill me and move in next?

Back when USB was first created, it was only going to be around 1 megabit because it was just for keyboards, mice and a few other items. It was essentially going to be the PC world answer to Apple's ADB, which had some interesting capabilities that went largely ignored. Over time time it was decided this would big a big improvement for stuff like printers and scanners, so they bumped it up to the raw 11 megabits. But storage wasn't considered part of the picture then. After overhead, USB 1.1 wasn't even fast enough for DVD playback, so things didn't get much attention until USB 2.0. If you wanted to get good performance from a removable drive, it needed to be IDE or SCSI. Even then, it took a long time before it really set in how big this would become. You'd think there would be some consideration by the time USB 3.0 rolled around but the feeling among the developers was that this was the responsibility of hardware platform and OS developers.

To an extent, they were right. There is no reason an AV product cannot have a mode set by the admin that requires any newly connected USB device to be scanned before it can be accessed by the user or anything on it can do more than answer the request for ROM ID to determine if the device is a HID or other known class.

This would be a big pain for those in the habit of carrying around high capacity drives well in excess of need but it you have a legit reason due to very large files, the scan won't take long. If you have tens of gigabytes of small files, you're going to have a wait. This is why most of the drives I have are 64 and 128 GB but I keep around the smaller drives. If I'm concerned I might not get the drive back I'll try to use one no bigger than it needs to be. Also, little 4 and 8 GB drives are often freebies, so having a bunch of those on hand that you can let go is handy.

It's amazing to think the first USB flash drive I bought was all of 64 megabytes and cost me me twenty bucks. I never got that much use out of it because by the time most machines had the hardware and OS support much higher capacity was the norm. Seemed like a good idea at the time, when floppies were still in wide use.

The good old days of computers.

There was some article a few years ago about the worst products ever for computers, and one they made fun of was the Zip/Jazz drives. Anyone who had those when they came out would tell you that they were the greatest things ever. After years of backing up your computer with 50-60 3.5" disks, you could now back up everything on one disk via your USB drive.

Instead of using a tape backup that you hoped wouldn't break, you had a hard disk.

Wanted to send large files via the mail or take with you? Zip drive.

Yes, cd-rom drives were becoming more prevalent, but recordable cd-rom drives were still years away.

373 ZIP drives were great. I remember the first time I saw it at a trade show a few months before they came to market. Fuji had developed the superfloppy disc technology and tried to shop it around with no success for quite a while before they went to Iomega. Iomega was not in good shape but saw a big opportunity and bet everything on the product. The first one I had connected through the parallel printer port. Iomega used to send five of everything to Jerry Pournelle, so several items got passed to me, like the battery pack to allow the drive to be used with a laptop.

The guy who wrote the article was probably one of those embittered click of death people but I never had a problem with any of my ZIP drive or the ones I set up for other people. I got rid of my last IDE ZIP drive just last year. It hadn't actually been used in many years but as long as I had an old machine around with a parallel IDE port I thought it might come in handy in case someone had some files on old discs they needed to recover. I still have a USB ZIP in a carry case around, IIRC. The last time it got used was when my cousin died of a brain tumor ten years ago and he had a couple dozen ZIP disks that needed to be checked for anything of importance. (Nada)

Still looks like a false flag to me.

Erdogan just happened to have a list of about 2700 judges to shitcan right at the end of it.

1. If the military was in control, they would have shot his plane down or destroyed it when it landed.

2. The military wouldn't have laid their guns down nice and neat for those protesting to pick up said guns and disappear with them. How many of those "protesters" do you think were ISIS or ISIS supporters?

3. A coup attempt with only a few hundred casualties?

The whole thing is a way for Erdogan to purge the upper level of the military of any secular holdouts and put Islamists in those positions.

I suspect the coup leaders were suckered into it as a means to complete their purge of the secularists. Perhaps Erdogan and his cronies have a fantasy of resurrecting the Ottoman Empire after ISIS and their ilk destabilize the whole region enough for one strong nation to bind it all under them. Probably counting on the West to take out Iran at some point so they won't have to, though it would be a useful way to eliminate some troublesome excess population of the wrong age and gender. That would go a long way toward cementing their control. Iran still has a severe demographic gap from their war with Iran, leaving an excess of men who are too old or too young to run things the way the Imams want it.

Also, they never had to send a large graphics file to a printer for a huge print job.

Last time I used mine was back in 2001 to send the gameday program to the printers, and to send dasherboard artwork to the graphics company. Neither could have been emailed at the time, 3.5" floppies werent big enough, and cd-roms were just becoming recordable.

But there were airstrikes on military intelligence and national police and the parliament.

If you try to set up a coup and make it that realistic, there's always the chance that events will take on momentum and begin to flow in ways you can't predict.

Too risky.

Aircraft story.

I once enjoyed unimpeded, solo access to an as yet un-finished FiFi, the sole remaining flight worthy B-29.

It was all alone at the Hondo, TX airport, in for whatever work the volunteers at that facility could contribute, and had been there for some months.

One day, I was en route back home to San Antonio, with some time to spare, and so pulled into the airport, and had a good discussion with the guard at the gate.

Who. Let. Me. In.

Shortly, another airport employee, not security, but who was causally involved with the project, allowed me up the crew stair, and told me simply to not touch shit up there.

I took a full tour. The avionics were clearly out and being worked on, and most of the cockpit was awry. So, I didn't get to sit in the pilot's seat, or go forward of that spot.

But, it was raw, unclean, greasy, filthy and otherwise just a coming-back-to-life, mess.

I loved it.

Just walking around under the wings and engine, I was struck with the sheer majesty of the craft.

And by some drops of oil from the engines.

I took it as a sign of mutual respect, and quietly took my leave. Somberly, appreciatively, and in a reflective mood.

Heroes flew those planes. I got close enough to walk once, in their footsteps.

So very, very humbling.

I keep thinking of how they were so goddamn hot to get our guys families out of Turkey and then THIS happened. I am worried as hell for someone i know over there who is just a sweet nerdy man teaching English there. Hed been unemployed a long time before he took that job and he was poor but happy teaching kids and making a difference in their lives. Its a very dangerous world over there and my Turkish friends told me thay will never go back. Not exactly safe for an unworldly nerdy guy, and i worry for him.

423 It's impossible to say from here what portion of the Turkish electorate is against the tilt toward Islamism but there is an established tradition of generating a lot of fear with just a little violence so that the Islamists get their way in the elections. Here in the US we couldn't get a prosecution against men who stood outside polling places with clubs and dressed in military style uniforms, haranguing entering voters to make 'the right choice.'

424 It's in our DNA to always be "for the people". The "people" are always the good guys. We need to disabuse ourselves of this.

In the ME, many of "the people" are insane fanatics (goatfuckers is my term of art for them -- we'd need to clean this up for polite discourse, of course, but it is otherwise a good way to label what you're dealing with).

Yes, machines can and do have spirits and personalities. They acquire them from those who've used them, relied upon them, owed their lives to them.

Pa - my grandfather - told of having a rifle that hated him when he was in the Pacific; said he couldn't get along with the damned thing, and didn't trust it one bit.

When he got re-deployed - a long story - to Europe, he ended up with an M1 carbine who loved him, an M3 SMG he called his 'girlfriend,' and, mounted on his scout car, a Ma Deuce who, he said, loved him as if he were her own son.

His sidearm we still have - he brought it back. While he was deployed, he named it for the woman he loved and whom he married when he got back home.

Why? Because it's damn dangerous. Speaking of DNA, this Caliphate shit lives in the imagination of all the Mooslims out there. Even the not-so-goatfuckery ones. Take any of them, as Westernized as you can get, generations of it, yet, being a Muslim, this Caliphate shit is in the back of his mind.

A few decades ago my high school AFJROTC "flight" got to take a field trip to Davis Monthan, and we stopped at Evergreen airfield on the way back. They were almost done restoring a B-17 and let us climb around in in it. I am by no means a big guy, and I was a toothpick back then. Still, I found some areas very tight and I was too big to fit into the ball turret. The guys who went up in those things had big brass ones.
I agree. It was humbling and awe inspiring.

432 Uncle Palp.

You're entirely correct.

I've had several vehicles with which I could never attach.

Conversely, my '89 'Wing 1500 was an extension of my motorcycle riding soul.

Riders on crotch-rockety sport bikes were ever in danger of being embarrassed on twisty roads, when the 'Wing was in full song, and I was on in my groove.

And the 6.5x55 Swede M-96 in my safe is the same. It's just uncanny what I can do with that rifle on a good day. Sans optics, too.

No need for a ballistics calculator. I just know what it's going to do, and it does it.

440 There was a Greek genocide as well, there just weren't as many of them killed as the Armenians. Ataturk's (then Kemal) Nationalist Movement (the Kemalists) got their hands dirty with that as well.

BTW, "Ataturk" is really a title, meaning "Father of Turks". They gave him that as a name, and forbid it ever being used for anyone else. Criticizing him is still a crime in Turkey.

441 Speaking of coups, y'all ever notice how deposed right-wing dictators face charges in the Hague whereas deposed left-wing dictators get tenured professorships in Western universities? Hell, there are still Sandinistas rousing rabble in Nicaragua. The only deposed left-wing dictator I know of that went to the Hague was Slobodan Milosevic, and that was for the unforgivable crime of defending his country against islamic aggression.

Good luck with that, as it is integral to Islam itself.

Robert Spencer's thesis, as mentioned earlier, is that empires use religion as an instrument of policy and the newly created Arab empire needed a new religion to serve as its primary policy instrument. They chose to give it a retroactive existence, making it the driving force of the empire's birth and creation, rather than giving credit to mere mortals who'd soon pass from memory. Thus Mohammed was created, the perfect man to be remembered as no other could.

Removing the Caliphate from Islam would be like telling Christians they need to stop all this focus on the terribly dreary crucifixion.

443 Huh, must be in the air. Moonshine, Mustangs and Skynyrd. What are the chances.....

Too bad Powerball ain't a lexicon based system or I'd be set.

Anyway, 20 years ago, Skynyrd played the WV State Fair.
For us locals, it rivaled Garth Brooks (and yes he played the State Fair back in the day too). Standin room only In the grounds, and a couple thousand watchin thru the chain link fences surroundin it. Its Hillbilly Gospel Live, what do you expect. Really.

State Police put 40 Officers on site, (stage, then track seatin, then grandstand) to Temper the festivities. It kept most everyone from gettin Completely outta hand. Seriously, they let everyone Party, but maintained Control.
FUCKIN AWESOME Concert. Skynyrd played their ass off. Excellent energy and showmanship.I've seen 100plus various bands live since an its still an Aplus show. They did it For a bunch of Hicks. Much Respect.

Reallllllly Lonnnggggg, but consistently entertaining and fun, story later...

I got to hang with The Band on their Tour Bus and drink beer. Even back then, after all the Fame they had experienced, They were Super Cool Dudes. Was a.really Exceptional Night. I'll always, always remember it.

Skynyrd rocks.

444 They were heroes. But like all the other heroes of history (Achilles, George Washington, Audie Murphy) they only did their duty to the utmost of their ability, and that made them heroes.

447 Folks, it's way late for me, and I've gotta yank on the yellow n' black striped handle down here.

But, I wanna read Hillbillyking's story, later on. So, I hope someone will point it out to me down the road, on a new day.

And as for the heroes. Much I agree with, has been said.

But, they've been tried in the fires, and found worthy.

And us? We're playin' around looking at firework fuze punks, by comparison.

That said, no sane man wants to lay that punk to the fuse, either.

It either comes to us, comes at us, or it doesn't.

I have a sense of how I'd be, then. Three times in my life, I've had to look at another man across the sights of a gun.

One, was my brother.

Thank God, all complied with commands.

But still, what such men did under fire, and many of them on a daily basis?

I bow my knee to no man.

But to them, I stand. Quietly salute. Reverently.

And but hope that should I face the same test, to be found worthy in the fire.

With that, I yield the floor.

Good night, friends.

Jim, I got my start with a P-38 in the late 70's. Popa, my granddad (a WWII Combat Vet) took me to an Air Show.
Never had the pleasure/honor of checkin out a 29. Envy is a Sin, but....... big smile. My former Bosses Father, flew missions outta Tinnian as a belly gunner. I was fortunate enough to know Bud, he passed at 94..... Hero indeed and forever.

Uncle Pap, we have Popa's sidearm too. His humility, and patience, and Love.....after what he'd been through......
Words aren't enough. I count myself blessed to have had him in my life.
