Overnight Open Thread (6 Aug 2016)

Women and children my ass. Pew Survey: 73% of Europe's refugees in 2015 were men.

I haven't found data yet for refugees entering the United States that break down the male female ratio but I did find this regarding folks coming across from the south. You see the same imbalance. In FY2015, 68% of unaccompanied children were males. In fact for the last four years it has been 77%, 73%, 66%, and 68%.

Here you can see by state the breakdown of where all refugees are being relocated. CA is leading the charge.

Iran

This will be Obama's legacy. Iran is cheating on the nuclear sham, now what?

What has been President Obama's reaction to these crucial intelligence reports? Silence. The administration continues to disregard and dodge questions regarding this issue. When asked about the German intelligence report and the Institute for Science and International Security report, a State Department spokesman said, "we have absolutely no indication that Iran has procured any materials in violation of the JCPOA."

The more the White House ignores Iran's violations of the nuclear accord, the more Iran will be emboldened to violate international laws and the terms of the nuclear agreement.

Olympics

Nobody wants to host the Olympic Games anymore. Can you blame them? Heck, I can't even be bothered to watch. I'll just read about it or catch the highlights somewhere.

Fear The Bones

h/t to one of the morons in the facebook group. I'm so glad I got launch these bad boys back during my shooter tour. Nothing quite seeing a Tomcat "kneel" on the catapult prior to launch.

Life On A Carrier

Pretty good read. Life in the 'Danger Zone'. Ah, memories.

Military Knowledge

I could totally see Democrats saying this. British press freak out thinking 5-inch Naval guns are really 5-inches in size.

Sneaky Squirrel

Here's rare video of that Sneaky Squirrel that is probably absconding with moron brewski's.

Luggage

C'mon people. If you are in a friggin' airplane crash and survive, don't freakin' take the time to grab your carry on. Seems to be the trend. People in plane crashes keep risking their lives for their luggage. If I recall at that recent Dallas airport shooting, weren't people in the video taking their bags with them too?

Somebody Is Watching You

This company has built a profile on every American adult.

For more than a decade, professional snoops have been able to search troves of public and nonpublic records - known addresses, DMV records, photographs of a person's car - and condense them into comprehensive reports costing as little as $10. Now they can combine that information with the kinds of things marketers know about you, such as which politicians you donate to, what you spend on groceries, and whether it's weird that you ate in last night, to create a portrait of your life and predict your behavior.
IDI, a year-old company in the so-called data-fusion business, is the first to centralize and weaponize all that information for its customers. The Boca Raton, Fla., company's database service, idiCORE, combines public records with purchasing, demographic, and behavioral data. Chief Executive Officer Derek Dubner says the system isn't waiting for requests from clients - it's already built a profile on every American adult, including young people who wouldn't be swept up in conventional databases, which only index transactions. "We have data on that 21-year-old who's living at home with mom and dad," he says.

Imagine if they could run the stats for the number of unaccompanied children that are actually 20 or older.

"perhaps a cooperative bid split between [African] urban centers, such as across Abidjan, Accra, Lagos, and Douala, could succeed where others have failed."

Good list. The one big one they miss is the fact it's switched from once every four years to staggering parts of it every two years. It doesn't seem as special as it used to be.

While I guess I should expect something like this coming from Reason:

"The Olympics, designed as a means by which France might avenge its loss in the Franco-Prussian War, is explicitly nationalistic in a world that is moving toward greater individualism."

I also highly disagree with it. If you think nationalism's on the decline, you have a very provincial view of the world.

I thought "Wonder Boys", with Michael Douglas and Frances McDormand, was an excellent translation of Michael Chabon's novel.

Also, I just saw "The Lair of the White Worm", which apparently was a novel by Bram Stoker, but it was made into a deliciously cheezy flick by Ken Russel. It's the KenRusselest!

My dad took us to see "Battle of Britain" when we were tykes. I still remember the scene where the pilot is shot across the face by tracers and his goggles fill up with blood. Nice parenting, Dad!

Maybe it was revenge for all those Disney movies he had to sit through.

Hey everybody.

Nothing about David Horowitz passing away at Wikipedia.

And, how big a nerd was I when I was a kid? This much of a nerd: I was a fan of the *other* David Horowitz, who was a consumer advocate on Los Angeles' NBC channel. He even had a show called "Fight Back!"Posted by: qdpsteve at August 06, 2016 11:22 PM (q7T0y)

Weird. When I binged David Horowitz, in the sidebar of the Bing pageit had a Wikipedia listing showing "Lived: Jan 10, 1939- July 23, 2016". But whenI click on the Wikipedia page itself, it does not list a death date.

The mountains near the city, Hollyburn, Grouse, and Seymour have half-assed snow half the winter, maybe. Too low, too close to the salt water. That's why they did the winter games at Whistler nearly 100 miles north, and inland by at least one range of substantial mountains.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at August 06, 2016 11:44 PM (f3Uae)

123 OK, so a few nights ago I wrote about a feral cat problem I was having. In sum, a recent flood dislocated a mother cat and five kittens from a neighboring field, after which they decided to come set up shop on my patio, harass my dog and cat, and drink out of the pool. The mother cat was getting more and more aggressive so something had to give.

My vet said feral cats of this age cannot be rehabilitated and adopted, so I could either TNR (trap, neuter and return, not really an option since the entire goal was to get them to go away); trap and euthanize, which seemed rather extreme; or trap and relocate, leaving them intact so they would retain their hunting and fighting edge in their new locale.

Shortly after that consultation, someone suggested I bomb the area with coyote urine, the thinking obviously being that if the cats thought a natural predator was around they would leave for safer environs. Believe it or not it worked, at least for now.

I still see them lurking around the yard and near the perimeter, but that's good enough to solve my immediate problems as far as I am concerned. Hopefully they will get hungry, start to hunt in the field, learn to like it, and then grow up, go to college and raise cat families of their own somewhere else, say, a barn a couple of acres away.

We'll see what happens. In the interim I appreciate all the thoughtful advice I received here in the ONT comments.

159 Here is my thing on host cities, especially following the issues in Sydney and also in Rio...

these cities have 7-8 years from the time their bid is confirmed to make sure their city is ready...financially, safety-wise, facility-wise, and any other way...to host mass numbers of people from all over the world. They usually start their bid 2 years or so before that.

There is absolutely no excuse for dormitories to not be completed till the week of the Games. There is absolutely no excuse for lags in security.

What it will take is for the IOC to have the stones to one of these days, revoke the Games from a city and give it to a ready-city, like LA or Toronto or Sydney. Otherwise, these cities have NO accountability whatsoever.

The U.S. was supposed to host the Olympics in 1976 for the Bicentennial - Summer or Winter, whichever. I believe they wanted Denver or Lake Placid to host the Winter Games in '76, but neither was going to happen.

By 1980, Lake Placid was ready with dormitories for the athletes. It was a medium-security federal prison 4 miles outside the village. It opened for business soon after the closing ceremonies. (I've been there a few times. Pretty nice place, even as a prison.)

188 @ 157 -- I thought about that. But isn't neutering, putting them back where they were, and then excluding them with the coyote bomb basically the same as neutering and relocating them to somewhere new like a state park? If the goal is to get them to go away and hunt and live elsewhere then I may not be doing them any favors by lowering their hunting and fighting drive by spaying and neutering.

It's ponderous, and there aren't really any great solutions. Two other factors in my thinking are that my wife is a major animal lover and is really upset about all this, and oh by the way this group will itself reproduce in the near future. Not good.

Would still like an honest explanation on the Gingrich thing. Newt had been helping him for months if not years. Was he unhappy about not being picked for vp?
Posted by: Shiggz at August 06, 2016 11:56 PM (G7wcY)
------------------

I've been sayin' for years, Gingrich is no good. He's a sanctimonious slop who secretly loves to hang out with the bad kids behind the bleachers smoking cigarettes. My favorite job of calling him out was by Thomas Sowell:

>>Back in 1997, when black Republican Congressman J.C. Watts denounced people like Jesse Jackson and then D.C. mayor Marion Barry as "race-hustling poverty pimps," House Speaker Newt Gingrich took it upon himself to apologize to Jesse Jackson.

>>To apologize for what another man said is to treat that man as if he were your child or your servant. Gingrich then added further insult by inviting Jesse Jackson to join him in his box for the Clinton inauguration for his second term as president.

>>Pulling the rug out from under your friends, in order to appease your enemies, may seem like clever politics to some people. But what could possibly have led Republicans to think that pro-Jesse Jackson blacks were ever going to vote for them?

197 57 ... Best film adaptation, if you mean closest to the book, is "Where Eagles Dare". Every scene and 95 percent of the dialog is straight out of the novel.

One of the worst was the recent Hobbit movie trilogy. Although visually stunning, it should have carried the warning: This movie is VERY slightly inspired by the book by JRR Tolkien.

274 Rio: Calendaria Massacre

It is not known how many actual police were in the killing squads or whether this pattern really continues (though there are official reports of a number of killings before the olympics), but at least several hundred young people (often between 10 and 1 were killed extra-judicially in the late 80s and early 90s.

The Calendaria Massacre itself was only 11 kids, but was part of a much larger pattern.

Typically there are reports of "street kids" being killed before major conferences in Rio.

This is why being in a "first world country" is not some intangible benefit people should take for granted. Also why "law and order" is not some conservative joke.

Incorrect. No nearly about it....it WAS obscene.

Posted by: TickledPink at August 07, 2016 12:31 AM (F5hTl)

The eye-candy of the New Zealand countryside had aesthetic value; some of the sets had an aesthetic value (goblintown, Lonely Mountain); some of the inserted plot even had an aesthetic value (linking continuity from "Oakenshield" to the orc threatening them in the trees; Laketown refugees; the burglary contract)....but other parts were extremely questionable (Jeeves as Mayor of Laketown, cameos from EVERY FUCKING PERSON in LOTR); and there was way too much stuff that was just BAD: dwarves riding goats; the entire golden dragon bit; every cringeworthy scene with Radagast; the Misty Mountain giants....[ulp, sorry, bile rising -- ending list now]....

So, if the definition of "obscene" is "possessing no aesthetic value", I'd say it was not obscene.....but there were a shit-ton of negatives against the positives.

It is a very odd little detour, but important in some thematic ways -- the idea that there are local laws of reality, unconnected with greater schemes, for instance. But, while filmable, it'd take half a movie to "show" how it fit in -- where in a book you can let people mull things over after they've closed the covers.

Sum of all fears....

The castin of Liev Schreiber as John Clark had serious potential. He conveyed the concept of Clark well. His work in Ray Donovan is excellent and proves how well he could have "realized" John Clark.

If some fucktard in Hollywood would've really pushed for Clancy's Without Remorse, (equal to any he wrote, easily), to be adapted.....an cast Schreiber as Clark, it could've been GREAT.

Willem Defoe, whose a magnificent actor, just Was Not John Clark. It's a perfect example of miscastin a role.
Clear and Present Danger could've been done sooooo much better.

There are some who say he is Iluvatar, the being that caused the world to be sung into existence, slumming it within his creation; there are others who say he is Valar or Maiar. He may be a created being, like the elves, dwarves, men, or hobbits -- but of another class -- and that begs the question of who created him....in that Aule clearly created the dwarves. Arguing against this is that he donned the One Ring and showed no effect. Maiar, such as Gandalf, would have shied away; created beings would have vanished. He argues that those who draw power from a general system face effects from the system. Maybe he's Iluvatar's brother who's a stoner and a bum.

298 I never knew the origin of the Tom Bombadil character. He seems like something Tolkien made up, along with the humorous poems, for his children but I don't know if that is so. I also have a VERY vague feeling that there is a similar character in Nordic mythology which Tolkien might have drawn on.

The first time I read LOTR the Bombadil scenes came across as fun but discordant. Now I think Tolkien used them as a way to establish Middle Earth as a place of wonder, mystery (Bombadil is never explained in the book), even religious overtones in the sense that there was more to Creation before the advent of man.

I still read my old copy of Bored of the Rings every few years and still LMAO at it.

Yes, the burglary contract is in The Hobbit. The origami bit wasn't -- and doesn't really fit the original (it should have been on regular-sized paper, in triplicate, each signed by a scribe as being a "true copy", one copy to go with the expedition, one copy to be lodged with Bilbo's heirs, and one copy to be held by Thorin's heirs). But the origami thing was fun and funny and fits in with the way that The Hobbit is told (e.g. the cleanup).

The one where Clancy snarked on the DVD commentary track "I'm the guy who wrote the novel that the filmmakers ignored when they made this movie."
Posted by: IllTemperedCur


It's worth the rental just to listen to Clancy trash the movie right there with the director next to him. The director gets all sorts of snippy and manages to not help himself in any fashion.

328 320 cthulhu , Absolutely agree. There wasn't enough time in the LOTR movies to explain Bombadil. And only a few weirdos like myself would have cared.

Old Blue, Bilbo got Sting as part of troll hoard in The Hobbit. He gave it to Frodo in The Fellowship of the Ring, both the book and the movie. The other Hobbits picked up weapons from the Barrow Downs scene in the book.

And it was named Sting during the fight with the spiders.

329 Old Blue, I've read the LOTR annually for 50 years. I still get new insight from it only because I've learned more about Tolkien, his influences, and literature in general. However, I probably don't need my eyes open to read it anymore. Just have to turn the page at the appropriate time. :-)

Time to turn in. The Book Thread starts in seven hours. Enjoyed the Tolkien chats.

It's been awhile since I read LotR, but when the movie came out, I
pointed out to my wife (whose never read it) that the Tom Bombadil part
was left out.
Having been years since I've read the Hobbit and LotR,
I always seem to think that it was in that part of the book (LotR) that
Frodo picked up Sting. I don't remember Bilbo picking up that
particular weapon.


Posted by: Old Blue at August 07, 2016 01:16 AM (9iR5/)


Sting, an elven blade, was directly gifted from Bilbo to Frodo. It glowed faint blue in the presence of orcs (which were Morgoth's GMO'd elves). In the caverns beneath the Misty Mountains, Sting allowed Bilbo to relax a bit and interact with Gollum, because it showed him there were no orcs around while they chatted. Later conversation showed how dangerous Gollum could be.

The interlude with Bombadil did, however, arm the other hobbits -- including the heavily bespelled blade that offed the Lord of the Nazgul in the third book. Had a nice ironclad prophecy that no man could harm him, got stopped in his tracks by some dame....and, then, https://youtu.be/Tr9xVmCL0bA

341 Tilikum. I've got a 452 Lux in the safe. Not often a mere .22 can be a true MOA rifle at a full 100 yards, but this one is.

Not sure if I recall exactly, but is the one you've described the 29" bbl. version? If so, that's an oddity, in that the .22 LR begins to lose velocity in barrels much over about 22 inches.

My "Lux" has a 24 in. barrel, so no serious loss, but that 29 in. tube really costs some actual velocity.

But, it perfectly mimics the handling of the 29" barreled service rifles such as the Swedish Mauser.

And frankly? I think right now, CZ quality is about the world standard, short of true custom-made guns.

Bombadil.....

There are some who say he is Iluvatar, the being that caused the world to be sung into existence, slumming it within his creation; there are others who say he is Valar or Maiar. He may be a created being, like the elves, dwarves, men, or hobbits -- but of another class -- and that begs the question of who created him....in that Aule clearly created the dwarves. Arguing against this is that he donned the One Ring and showed no effect. Maiar, such as Gandalf, would have shied away; created beings would have vanished. He argues that those who draw power from a general system face effects from the system. Maybe he's Iluvatar's brother who's a stoner and a bum.

348 The LOTR Wiki has a bunch of Bombadil theories. That he is a form of Adam is one. Also that he might be the spirit of music in the world, or nature, or even time, and then his wife would be nature so you have Father Time and Mother Nature. Then there are also the meta theories, that he is Tolkien, or Tolkien's friends, or even the reader.

I think the one I have has the 24.8 inch barrel. The Ultra Lux (and a few others) has the barrel you mention.
I have only dry fired it a couple times and that alone left me really impressed. The guy my dad bought it from put a nice Boyd's stock on it. My dad was using it in shooting competitions before his health went south.

The Silmarillion fills in a lot of the backstory. If you don't want to read the whole thing, there's always https://en.wikipedia.org /wiki/The_Silmarillion

Essentially, Iluvatar creates the Ainur -- a conclave of spiritual beings -- that sing Arda, the world, into existence. Within the world are created races who are bound to it, which include Dwarves, Elves, Ents, Men, and Hobbits.
Goldberry is likely some sort of created race, being as she's the daughter of willow.

I'll be nice about it. That's just my nature.
Another factor in the decision was that I told myself three years ago when I took the job that I didn't want to be doing this when I turned 50. That's about a month away. The cut in hours and the attitude of one of the owners just helped to push me toward keeping that promise.

412 Andromeda Strain, the movie, was awesome....up until the director decided to use unrealistic "movie lasers" in the core. It totally blows the realism for anyone who has ever dealt with lasers. They should have stuck with GLaDOS saying "deadly neurotoxin".

Posted by: cthulhu at August 07, 2016 01:53 AM (EzgxV)


Also, the medical doctor was a total retard and the scene with the guy explaining that the bell for the message hadn't rung must rank as one of the all-time worst scenes in movie history. But it was a great film, in toto.

Still, the ending didn't really make much sense. The alien form had mutated into a non-threatening strain but that didn't mean that it would stay that way. The real end of the story is that humanity was pretty much done with a probability of something around 98%.

I think I saw the remake though I'm hazy on it. I do have some recollection of thinking it sucked donkey shlong ... but it's just a feeling.

As to The Razor's Edge (that others were discussing) I thought the Bill Murray remake was excellent. It was, of course, a stupid story, but it was done well and was interesting. Murray did a great job and Theresa Russel and Catherine Hicks didn't hurt anything.

I read the book but it was so long ago that I don't remember any of those details. I'll take your word for it. From the movie it was susceptible to Ph changes (that was the thing with the sterno guzzler and the colicky baby, right) but I don't remember them ever really understanding how it worked - just that it fed off of energy and would grow like the blob if the nuke went off.

The other thing I remember now from the movie that was hysterical (about how retarded the medical doctor was) was when they explained the self-destruct system to him and that he had a key to turn it off and he just couldn't grasp the concept. That was hysterical ... though in my experience I can't say that it was unrealistic

Exactly right -- it was harshly constrained to a pH balance found in human bloodstreams or self-created in near vacuum. Even humans that cried incessantly (expressing CO2 and rendering the blood basic) or drank Sterno (rendering the blood acidic) were immune. Virtually any rain would wash it into a body of water where it would be neutralized.

477 468 The Red Hot Chili Peppers, with both surviving founding members turning 54 this year, took offense at Clint Eastwood's recent remarks about Millenials.

Guys, you're well into middle age. He wasn't talking about you.

Anthony loves him CA. Lots of women to sexually assault there and they think it's normal. Right Anthony?

Well that's a disappointment. I thought it was going to be the start of day 2 already. Its just rerun from last night

479 Well that's a disappointment. I thought it was going to be the start of day 2 already.


We have differing concepts of "disappointment".

Also, it's not even 6 AM there.

480 Obama will send those fake refugees to blue States because the governors in Red States would probably sue him. Of course, a suit doesn't cost him nothing.

481 Its disappointing because the camera view of the Brazilian match earlier in the day had much better ass shots.

482 Best novel to film adaptation?

To Kill a Mockingbird, without a doubt.

And so to bed . . .

That sounds plausible.

484 Its disappointing because the camera view of the Brazilian match earlier in the day had much better ass shots.

For the quality of buttocks in the Olympics they are awfully prude about showing asses.

It's like the one great aspect about the stupid thing and they won't show it.

485 G'night everyone.

486 Was in VF84 once upon a time. A rare thing indeed to be a Jolly Roger. Wouldn't trade it for anything. Now, Reveille! Reveille! Remember it well.

487 I was in VF31 once upon a time. Perhaps we were at Oceana at the same time.

488 68, 69, 70. Independence, then FDR. I'm 67.

Posted by: Eromero at August 07, 2016 05:53 AM (zLDYs)

489 I work w/ ex flangehead that was on Independence.

Posted by: BignJames at August 07, 2016 05:56 AM (x9c8r)

490 Yeah, I think you were there a bit earlier than me. 86-90, on the Forrestal, and then again from 2000-2005 with VFA-81 on the Washington and VFA-106 to retirement.


VF-84 is, alas, no more. They were disestablished and the Dogs took their name and logo (and the bones, too), they then transitioned to the Super Hornet. The Jolly Roger now flies with VFA-143.

491 Avionics. F4J's. Except for that 90 days TAD from the squadron messcranking in the CPO mess on the Independence during which I gained 10 pounds.

492 Wouldn't ya know it, first time I'm up for live VNN and Vic ain't here.

494 But, butt; the table shows

CA - 10,520
TX - 15,169
FL - 48,656

Did someone NOT bother to read his own table?

Posted by: Marooned at August 07, 2016 08:00 AM (XhyuK)

495 Actually, I should've been more clear. I was focused on the Middle East countries and not south o' the border. In that case, then yes FL leads the way.
