Saturday Morning Weird News [Mis. Hum.]

sat thread.jpg

It's the weekend. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the open thread. Just remember, play nice.

Here are a few things that didn't make The News Dump this past week.


  • Location, location, location
  • Weird news? Or Pet Thread News? Or both?
  • Meth lab under a Wal-Mart parking lot. People of Wal-Mart are suspects.
  • Women drivers
  • Employer of the year award
  • Specialty water for coffee
  • Quite the retriever you have there
  • A fool and his money are soon parted (NSFW)

    That wraps up another week of weird news. Have a great weekend!!!

    7 I'm drinking my butter and coconut oil-laden java per Ace's recommendation and it does give one a feeling of satiety paired with mental be-jazzity, so there's that.

    I made the mistake of visiting a Bulletproof Diet sight and my goodness the restrictions are monkish. Just my opinion, but I wonder if these faddish proscriptive lifestyles don't flourish more in times of uncertainty such as we are enjoying at present. A tiny feeling of control as you circle the maelstrom.

    8 Re: Specialty water for coffee. I notice what is probably the most important thing... the ph of that water is 7.0. While that is allegedly 'perfect' as in neither acidic or base, it's not that common.

    Most municipal water supplies are in the 7.5 ph range.

    Finally, a topic for our resident associate professor to weigh in on that he's actually qualified to answer.

    10 Laughing at the Daily Beast Olympic Outing story. Liberal hypocrisy on display.

    Using the pic of the male reporter as bait isn't going to catch ANY straight men at all. And few women, who are not as promiscuous and many who aren't into men. No, this was all about targeting people who were into hook-ups with men.

    And the Proud Liberals at the Daily Beast ran with it, and thought it was the kind of thing their readers would lap up. Ha.

    17 Willowed- brought forward from the earlier thread:


    According to a 2014 article in the Daily Mail Chelsea Clinton started her Oxford PhD program in 2011 and finished in 2014 (three years, wow). She lived in New York and completed her "course" work remotely (an on-line PhD program!). This was during the time she allegedly worked for NBC News (also 2011-2014). She got the PhD in May '14 and left NBC in Aug '14. And also she was named co-chairwoman of the Clinton Global Foundation during that time frame.

    The PhD was in Global Governance (alternatively reported as 'International Relationsh') with an emphasis in Global Health. (presumably where HRC got the public health nonsense)

    Odd series of 'accomplishment' (AIUTTL). Makes one wonder about a number of things.

    I've been doing intermittent fasting and I've chosen to believe ace's 90/10 diet/exercise efficacy for losing weight.

    You can get "in-line" filters for your kitchen sink water supply if you have water problems and they are not too expensive. Buying yuppie bottle water of any kind is just plain stupid. I recall an article I read a few years ago about some kind of yuppie bottled water marketed in NYC. It turned out that it was plain NYC municipal water that you had in your facets already.

    Well, yeah. How rigorous a course of study could it have been to be able to complete it in three years. While working a full-time "job" at NBC. And a part-time Clinton foundation "job".
    From another continent.

    I wonder (somewhat rhetoricdally):

    1. Did she actually do the course work or was the degree a sop to the Clintons from Oxford?

    2. Was the dissertation written by her or was it (in whole or in part) written by paid ghostwriter?

    3. Why this mediocre talent is being foisted upon us as some type of sooper-geenyus.

    4. Why anybody in the public at large would fall for the notion that Chelsea Clinton is now (by virtue of this dubious academic accomplishment) an "expert" on Zika virus, having never worked in public health or virology.

    5. Why the PhD wasn't granted in the area of "Global Ascendancy of the Scions of Scoundrels" with an emphasis on Peon Subjugation.

    64 I am due for "tires". After hours and hours and hours of research I have finally settled on a set.

    Why so much time to shop for tires? Am I frugal? Am I a cheapskate? Am I capable of making a decision anymore?

    I just don't know. Wait. Yes, I do. Er, maybe not. I don't know. Yeah. Yes I do.

    I just want to be fully prepared for when my know it all FIL will tell me what I should have bought and proceeds to brow beat me with his patented brand of snide criticism.

    I'll tell him "Yeah, really? Well there are currently 1508 people on Tire Rack that say what I bought with my money was a wise decision. Go argue with them and try to make them second guess themselves until they question their value as a human being, ya fucking goon."

    Of course I won't say it. That'd just justify in his mind the opinion that I am an idiot loser bag of shit. I'll practice it. Maybe I'll say it. Nah, I probably won't. But I'll practice. I'll be ready. Maybe this time. Ahh, who am I kidding. I won't say it. He'll tell me what I should have said.

    If I had a time machine, I could buy what he said I should have bought and he'd tell me I should have bought something else.

    Oops. Wrong site. I am such an idiot loser bag of shit.

    Actually, I'll stick up for IAMS here.

    Our pooch used to have horrible diarrhea constantly (and everywhere) when she was a pup.

    We tried several different foods, took her to the vet, and finally he said, "Just feed her IAMS Lamb and Rice. It's the easiest dog food on the stomach.

    and (here my memory may or may not be correct) the ash content and a few other things make for drier, harder, less messy dog poops.

    so, we tried it and literally the next day the diarrhea stopped.

    We feed her exclusively on IAMS Lamb and Rice and she turned 14 earlier this year and is still going strong.


    I thin the effect of "premium dog food" is probably mitigated in most households by all the scraps and leftovers dogs get in most homes.

    And, of course, the occasional pile of tasty rabbit poo in the backyard.

    When I was moving back from Puerto Rico I had a bunch of friends waiting for me at the airport so we could go out and party. I settled in my plane seat with my headphones on and saw the stewardess helping this obviously distraught women down the aisle. We made brief eye contact as they passed.

    A few moment later I feel a tapping on my shoulder and the lady asks if she can sit next to me. It was clear she wanted to talk. Turns out she and her husband had been on their first vacation in like 30 years in St Thomas when he had a massive heart attack. He lingered for a few days in the hospital and then died.

    All her grown kids were too busy to come down and help her deal with her husband. Ungrateful pricks. So I got to hear her life's story for the next 5 hours while we flew home with her husband down below in baggage.

    The party was a little more low key than intended.

    When I was young and more successful I had a job that involve site visits to all sorts of companies, including manufacturers.

    One day I visited a pet food factory. They explained to me that everything is chicken. Beaks, legs, whatever. They made it in this huge vat that was like two stories tall.

    On Monday they made chicken flavor. On Tuesday they'd add caramel color and some flavor and make fish flavor. On Wednesday they'd add red dye and make beef flavor.

    I forget what they did on Thursday. On Friday they washed down the vat.

    Here's a question for the 'ettes:


    In my expensive readings, I have never and I mean never seen anything in writing or in movies for that matter, before 1980-something seen any female reference to "tight, tiny butts".

    It's all "broad shoulders" "Broad chested" "Strong arms" i.e.. emphasizing upper body strength.

    So...the question is:

    What's more attractive to you as a woman- broad chested, etc or tight, tiny butt in a man?

    Cuz I can see "tight, tiny butt" as a big gay turn on but for a woman there's zero evolutionary utility there.

    My personal theory is the Our Betters decided to make gay turn ons part of straight women's culture to help normalize teh ghey, but,

    hey, I could be wrong.

    161 votermom, you have a moka pot, and a nice modern one too. They were developed by the Italians. I am using one right now.

    In the older descriptions, it has been referred to as the "vesuvio" style.

    They make a fine cup with a medium roast.

    You have to keep them really clean or the coffee doesn't taste as good, and they take a finer grind than percolator coffee.

    Bialetti is the most common style, but there are other manufacturers out there,

    This is one where the design element is overpowering the practicial - it reminds me a little of the Woody Allen bit about "what if the impressionists were actually dentists"

    I tried the unsalted butter thing (with the coconut oil) a year or so ago, and didn't care for it. So I've been using heavy cream (because it says 0 carbs, and isn't that what butter is made from anyway?) and coconut oil, and it's pretty good. It really does leave you feeling full.

    210 When I see those commercials for fancy "organic" dog food, I think of the dog my family had as a child.

    We bought Patches cheap generic dog food because my mom thought Gaines Meal was too pricey. And I shudder now to think what else we gave her - completely innocently and under the impression we were treating her. We gave her chicken bones for god sakes. That almost counts as animal abuse, but she never had a problem.

    I felt sorry for her, having to eat cheap dog food every day. I thought it must be boring - so at Christmas and other special occasions we'd give her fancy Recipe dog food, which looked like beef stew (the kind Lassie ate!) She'd eat it and then puke it all up an hour later. Same thing happened when I "treated" her by giving her bread and milk. I didn't realize that it is better for dogs to get the same food every day.

    And she lived to be 15.

    People project their own tastes onto their pets. The most ridiculous example I can think of was a short-lived shop near my place which sold nothing but gourmet dog treats. The shop was set up like a bakery - you went in and picked out absurdly priced dog treats displayed in glass cases - peanut butter treats, cinnamon treats, even a basil favored treat. All that for animals who consider cat shit a marvelous snack and will happily eat junk they find in the gutter. It didn't stay in business long.

    Women who were not whores did not have the opportunity to see that many penises besides their husband's and their baby sons and brothers. So they had no way of comparing.

    Compared to a infant's penis, any adult man is going to look pretty well hung.

    Josey: I reckon not. Got nowhere to go.
    Ten Beers: Then you will die.
    Josey: I came here to die with you. Or live with you. Dying ain't so hard for men like you and me, it's living that's hard; when all you ever cared about has been butchered or raped. Governments don't live together, people live together. With governments you don't always get a fair word or a fair fight. Well I've come here to give you either one, or get either one from you. I came here like this so you'll know my word of death is true. And that my word of life is then true. The bear lives here, the wolf, the antelope, the Comanche. And so will we. Now, we'll only hunt what we need to live on, same as the Comanche does. And every spring when the grass turns green and the Comanche moves north, he can rest here in peace, butcher some of our cattle and jerk beef for the journey. The sign of the Comanche, that will be on our lodge. That's my word of life.
    Ten Beers: And your word of death?
    Josey: It's here in my pistols, there in your rifles. I'm here for either one.
    Ten Beers: These things you say we will have, we already have.
    Josey: That's true. I ain't promising you nothing extra. I'm just giving you life and you're giving me life. And I'm saying that men can live together without butchering one another. Ten Beers: It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double-tongues. There is iron in your word of death for all Comanche to see. And so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron, it must come from men. The words of Ten Beers carries the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life... or death. It shall be life.

    I think I've been overdoing it. I hate using a cane - it makes me
    feel like I'm 90 years old, so I haven't this past week. Fine for short
    distances, but if I walk more than a half block I'm gimping like crazy.
    And I went up a flight of stairs at work these past week and suddenly
    felt a whole new and unusual pain. The knee hurt so bad that night I
    needed to get up and take a pain killer.



    See what happens when you ask? I just don't heal up like I used to.

    Watch these videos and it might give you a different attitude towards the cane. You might start carrying it even after you no longer need it.

    356 Still, as we know, human sexuality is supposed to be about love and procreation. This of course, is something else. If he lives long enough, 10 years from now he'll be a cashier at a convenience store, and nobody will even notice him. Or what they'll notice is he's a freakish looking creep, and the teenagers will snicker as he's trying to be "cool" and sells them cigarettes.

    Note that the arrival of the Nephilim seems to be connected with the increase in wickedness in men. The spiritual and physical "contamination" of the human population with Nephilim elements would seem to be substantial.

    So Kim Kardashian is one of the nephilim? Heck, the whole damn Kardashian family are probably nephilim. It would explain a lot.

    Their coffee costs more than what I can buy in the supermarket, especially when you include shipping. But I'm not a huge coffee drinker, so it's not going to bust my budget or anything.

    It was founded by a Special Forces veteran, and a portion of their profits go to veterans' groups. It sounds like it's a company that's worth supporting.

    Browse around their website. Some of the reviews are hilarious and NSFW, and they also have some great videos on YouTube.

    I'm definitely going to have to buy one of their T-shirts and mugs at some point.

    - coffee: butter's not bad, but I cannot stand coconut oil in or on anything. I mostly know this from getting my morning cuppa years ago from a place that would sell you a hunk of Italian bread & butter for 50 cents. Great breakfast, love the taste when dunked. Leaves a butter film on the coffee.

    - dog food: For about the last decade we have been pretty much feeding the dogs stuff we could pretty much eat ourselves; meat (chicken, beef, lamb, pork) & vegetables (green beans, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, squash, etc. Not a lot of rice, but sometimes). About 75% meat / 25% veg. Cook, grind coarsely, mix, refrigerate.
    They love it, and seem to last 15 - 17 years under this regimen. ymmv.
