Overnight Open Thread (8-15-2016) [CBD]

30 Minutes of explosions from Arnold Schwarzenegger movies. Yeah...it's too much, but still....

The Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter," sung at a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction concert. U2 as the house band, and Fergie as the house chick is a nice touch. I like this version, complete with Jagger leering at Fergie, who looks particulalry fetching, in a leather-clad streetwalker kind of way....

New York City had a great run. First it was Giuliani, who cleaned up the city and allowed the uniqueness of our biggest city to shine through. He didn't care what you did, as long as it wasn't criminal. Then Bloomberg arrived with his delusions of grandeur, his Napoleonic complex, his hatred of automobiles (except his own), and a fervent desire to remake NYC into DisneyWorld. He gave it a good shot, and ruined many things, but the city still felt safe and even sort of honest.

But De Blasio is a shit-show the likes of which NYC hasn't seen in a very long time. Dinkens was incompetent, but probably not corrupt. Koch was a stand up guy, even if his politics were a bit left. Beame and Lindsey were mediocre, but not actively destructive. Crooked Bill is an awful combination of incompetent and corrupt, with a soupçon of socialist thrown in for good measure (or is that redundant?). The New Tammany Hall: New York in the Age of Corruption

The center of the new Tammany is Mayor de Blasio's City Hall. But de Blasio is no Boss Tweed, old Tammany's criminal genius. De Blasio has emerged as more pawn than prince of the city: insecure, in over his head, buffeted by moneyed players he cannot seem to resist and presiding over accelerating pay-to-play scandals that have cast a pall of political death over his administration.

Atlantic Yards offers a case study of how the new Tammany system has evolved. It's local: extending from dealmakers to a cadre de Blasio calls his "agents of the city" and to Albany's notorious "three men in a room." It's international: the deals stretch from New York and Washington to Russia and China. And it's sophisticated, powered by the global economy, the influential New York real estate industry, and non-profit entities manipulated for personal and political gain.

But the central scam of the new Tammany system would not be unfamiliar to old Tammany's Plunkitt: public money for private profit. Plunkitt called it "honest graft"-gaming the system to the benefit of the powerful and well-connected, with crumbs for the common folk.

Hi you guys!
Words That Hurt and Why, straight (oh...sorry) from the intellectually flaccid sewer that is California public education. Sadly, U.C. Davis used to have the reputation as a very rigorous science-oriented campus that was challenging intellectually and academically.

Hottest Reliably Measured Air Temperatures on Earth
This isn't an anti-AGW screed, just an interesting analysis of the hottest temperatures ever recorded. It's seems like 54C/129F recorded in Death Valley and Kuwait is close to the theoretical top end.

Studies by geographer Mark Jefferson (1926) and by Hoffman (1963) conclude that the highest possible surface air temperature on earth (measured by standard modern instruments) would be in the range of 131-133F (see Weather and Climate Extremes by Dr. Paul F. Krause and Kathleen L. Flood, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Topographic Engineering Center paper TEC-0099, September 1997. This is an old report and does not take into account AGW. Nevertheless, as of right now, I think this assumption still holds true.

Government of Nigeria reports 2 wild polio cases, first since July 2014

11 August 2016: GENEVA -- After more than two years without wild poliovirus in Nigeria, the Government reported today that 2 children have been paralyzed by the disease in the northern Borno state.

As an immediate priority, the Government of Nigeria is collaborating with WHO and other partners of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative to respond urgently and prevent more children from being paralyzed. These steps include conducting large-scale immunization campaigns and strengthening surveillance systems that help catch the virus early. These activities are also being strengthened in neighboring countries.

Here is one of the few circumstances in which the UN, through its World Health Organization, can have a positive effect on the world. Smaller countries can be overwhelmed by the requirements of a successful eradication effort.

On this date in 1057, Mac Bethad mac Findlaich, otherwise known as Macbeth, died in battle, fighting -- who else -- the English. He was the Scottish king on whom Shakespeare (roughly) based his great play.

She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
and all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

The homo-eroticism is clear, and there are some obvious textual hints that Shakespeare was, at the very least, questioning, possibly a transexual, and possibly even a lesbian.

Don't forget that, while Maetenloch might have deserted us in our hour of need, he is still alive and kicking over at his blog.

In the 600s AD a dynasty under a snake banner conquered and/or cajoled the Maya states into an empire. But at the end they lost, and the Maya never did fully unite. The civilisation imploded some generations later.

The Guardian, of course, has come out with an opinion piece that is calling to abolish the jury system in order to convict more men of rape. Julie Bindel, the writer of this insanity, claims that 94% of rapists get away with it and that thus rape is de facto legal.

85 When the carnage of WWI was over, the League of Nations was created to prevent that kind of mass-scale murder again.

Well, that lasted about 20 years, and the League did nothing about the Italian invasion of Ethiopia, the re-occupation of the Rhineland by Germany, and then we were off to the races.

So the UN, brainchild of the FDR clique, was supposed to be better. The UN did some good things in the first ten years. Then the Third World movement came to dominate the General Assembly. If it wasn't for the US Veto in the permanent Security Council, probably all kinds of insanity would have come out of the UN.
On one level, it's kind of harmless though annoying. I think someday the General Assembly of Third World Buttheads will finally get something really terrible to happen. They're trying so hard.

Are you implying that they are to be treated against their will and that the UN does that now? You lost me.

The point is that the UN is the most unnatural and dangerous sort of entity to ever exist. It is a peerless, competitionless, empowered entity and anyone with even a smidgeon of familiarity with captialist theory or evolutionary theory or just plain common sense knows that such an entity is guaranteed to grow in dangerous and grotesque ways. Such an entity cannot be allowed to exist, for any reason, and just to be the holding company for the WHO (which also does a lot of damage, itself) is not an argument for the continued existence of the most horrible and dangerous type of unnatural entity the earth has ever seen.

An Female Olympic Diving Team Has Broken Up Over an Alleged Fnck Fest

Giovanna Pedroso and Ingrid Oliveira competed in the synchronized diving final for Brazil, but they placed last.

On the eve of their competition they allegedly got into a huge fight when Pedroso came back to their hotel room and found Oliveira there with another Olympic hard body, canoeist Pedro Goncalves. It sounds like things didnt get ugly until Oliveira suggested that Pedroso find somewhere else to sleep for the night.

Very good.

I try to see him every time he's in my area. The last time was in the spring during primary season. He started to say something about how ridiculous the Republican candidates were, but got a tepid response from the audience and quickly changed the subject.

I think his fans tend more conservative than he realizes, in large part because of the intelligent subject matter of his songs.

This morning I went in to tell him I was leaving for work and he was trying to hide it from me! His speech was slightly slurred and his right side was very weak. Had to argue with him for 15 minutes before he finally relented and let me take him to the ER. CT scan doesn't show anything so they will so an MRI tomorrow morning. He's in the hospital now, exhausted but good spirits. The ER was swamped, didn't even get a room til almost 5 this afternoon.

243 I just had to run to the grocery store in town before it closed. They used to have a few that stayed open 24 hours, but they all stopped that, at least around here in town. Up in Greenville, there's still many that are 24 hours. Anyway, me sainted mother noticed she was about out of milk, and while you're there.....here's a list. Dear ol' Dad just ain't too good. When he about my age, he used to take my grandmother to the grocery store all the time, but he apparently didn't learn much.

Anyway, the check out girl was rather cute and friendly. Her name was Megan.

The poor girl had no idea what perverted thoughts that name inspired in my dirty little mind.

Well, I don't much to provoke such perverted thoughts. In fact, I come up with them all by myself. That condition started around puberty. Funny.

279 Speaking of crossdressing jingles, I remember one they ran years ago on some country station (or was it one of the rock ones). Anyway, it was in the "morning zoo" genre and they had some guy who really slathered on the country/redneck drawl singing "I'm proud to be a country transvestite".

The lyrics were funny, and I can only vaguely remember. It was something about some girl he had the hots for "said she could not take a husband. So I said, hell, honey, I'll be yo' wife". And he went on about "waring all 'em frilly liddle thangs."

this morning. He wasn't feeling well since Saturday but nothing that
made us think stroke. This morning I went in to tell him I was leaving
for work and he was trying to hide it from me! His speech was slightly
slurred and his right side was very weak. Had to argue with him for 15
minutes before he finally relented and let me take him to the ER. CT
scan doesn't show anything so they will so an MRI tomorrow morning.
He's in the hospital now, exhausted but good spirits. The ER was
swamped, didn't even get a room til almost 5 this afternoon.

Plus, she cut ads for Reagan's 2nd term.

Well ... I have no idea what a lofovo is - but I hope it's good for you. Like, Mind-Blowing Good with a Wet Wipe and Nap needed.

This notion of "We Can Agree to Disagree". Sounds pretty on paper. Never fucking seen it once work in reality. Not over anything of substance.

Sure - me and the ol' lady can disagree on the color of drapes ... but that's mostly because I don't really give a damn.

But on things that matter - I won't budge. And Anybody That Doesn't Have To won't budge either. Unless confronted with Superior Force. Then - people look for allies. Those folks are found when common cause can be identified.

So - to bring that all back around to a thread I missed here today - just how damn surprising is it that people are telling each other to piss off over politics on social media ? And why not rally around "Tribes" in the struggle ?

Seems to me that people with disagreeable politics are disagreeable about the most powerful force in our lives ... with life or death implications.

361 I go back and forth on Bono, too. But I do sense a down-to-earth spirit that can go beyond the assumed epic ego. He is indeed a professing Christian and has never backed down from admitting that.

One nice story I heard about him was that a few years ago, whilst in the U.S., Bono requested a private meeting with Billy Graham in Graham's home on the mountain. The request was granted and Bono spent an afternoon with Graham and wife Ruth (this was obviously before Ruth's death). The fact that anyone knew about it was because Billy made known how much his wife had enjoyed Bono, who matched her verse for verse on some very traditional hymns.

374 Odd pairing. Mitchell on guitar, and our own "one sheet" Sheryl Crowe on vocals.

Why?

Because they're both absolute masters of the unique, not "off key", but "differently tonal", version of guitar and vocal tuning, and I mean that in nothing but the most complimentary manner, by the way.

I don't think anyone else can sing Crowe's "Santa Monica Blvd." (or whatever the right title is), accurately. Ever. She broke absolutely un-breakable ground on that one.

She and Mitchell would have had one hell of a collaboration in the right studio. Given the right producer, that is.

But an album from that collaboration would likely be one of those epic, transformational pieces that gets talked about, fifty years after the fact.

Yeah, leftards to the max. Granted.

But talent from another universe, combined.

This is statistical mind you, a distribution, but girls age 14-15 are the most vulnerable. That's the peak of the GoFo assaults by age.

Almost all of the rapists are Gofos. You may remember this "don't grope" campaign. Well, a bunch of the Gogos raping women were caught wearing the "Don't Grope" wristbands the idiots handed out. The local govt. actually bused in the "immigrants" to the summer festivals where they all went rapey.

Posted by: Meremortal at August 15, 2016 11:32 PM (3myMJ)



No offense, but I'd mentioned Roy Clark, way upthread, along with Glenn Campbell and Chet Atkins.

If anyone doubts. Both Campbell and Clark did renditions of the Battle Hymn of the Republic, blended with Dixie... and both of 'em absolutely killed 'em.

Find them on You Tube, I'm too tired to dig them out, but they're there.

Talent like theirs still plays on the stage. But disciplined talent, like theirs, is vanishingly beyond scarce, these days.

Keith Urban plays nearly as tightly, but sadly, has never exhibited the range or "musical knowledge" to play into the Clark or Campbell playbook, albeit he is said to count Atkins as one of his guitar idols.

Of them all though, Roy Clark made it look easy, fun and approachable. Fking liar. It was never easy, was decades of hard, painful and penurious work, and about as approachable as a menopausal porcupine.

Which is why I'm a virtuoso on the stereo rack, not the actual instruments themselves.

Behind the laptop, on satellite tv a big screen, the same group was there in realtime the same chairs. This is 2014.

My epiphany, these knuckleheads who I would never bother to read, may have not evolved or said anything of interest in 32 years. There will be a time and place to give up on politics and I pray I recognize it.

448 Regarding the de Blasio shitshow of corruption in New York City, I am reminded that it's Anthony Weiner's fault New York has de Blasio as its Mayor now. This weekend I saw the excellent and extremely hilarious documentary "Weiner", which captures Weiner's ill-starred 2013 primary campaign for the Democratic Party's nomination (which, apparently, is the whole game in New York).

Weiner had real momentum toward the nomination and de Blasio was nowheresville when the Sydney Leathers sexting scandal broke. And Weiner's campaign collapsed in short order.

The documentary captures the humiliation of Huma Abedin in excruciating (and therefore amusing) detail. She clearly does not care for him; it's a business arrangement whereby Huma was hoping to be able to monetize her relationship with Weiner the way her role model Hillary has monetized hers with Bill.

Usually, if you find a good one all they need is a good fret dressing / crowning and they play great.

When the Beatles would perform live... their sets were rarely, if ever, longer than 30 minutes; in fact they were usually only about 20-25. Supposedly this was because of their manager Brian Epstein, who wanted to leave the audience with just a taste of the band.

It kind of makes sense, I've read they would also have up to three other bands open up for them.

Sort of Epstein's doing, but that was pretty much standard practice for all those bands back then. They were usually in package tours. There were technical reasons for doing this also, so that in non package shows (sort of standalone big venue one off concerts), that nevertheless had multiple openers... the sound systems, amps, foldback and whatnot couldn't really handle it. Much of the time the guitarists couldn't hear well enough to be able to retune their guitars on the fly, for example. So, just long enough before all the guitars go way out of tune.

My "six" is in Belfast, even as I type, attending to what might be the last moments of her 92 y/o mom's circuit around the sun.

Six's niece is a Belfast Peeler, the oldest female to have ever graduated the academy. 2nd in her class, btw.

She tells me that even the coppers can't carry a knife, and have to sort of "fake it" via their various Leatherman and Gerber tools.

I, on occasion, share range and training time with some former Royal Marine types, and they, to a man, cringe at the loss of what was once Great, about Britain.

The Trump Tower went on to be the in-building in New York and its condos were the first to go for over $1000/sq-ft.

613 #605: Actually, as ridiculous as some of those rock bands' demands sound, there really is a legitimate reason for them.

If David Lee Roth goes into his dressing room and sees a big bowl of MMs, with all the brown ones removed, he knows that the concert promoter he's signed up with has read the full contract and is abiding by it.

It's just his way of looking out for himself.

Anyway, that Johnny Weir thing, whatever it really is, was on again. Poor TV couldn't take it. The "dude" has some sort of Bride of Frankenstein hairdo going on, wearing some knee-length women's pants of some sort, with frills. With his damned hairy legs.

That is well and truly obscene.

615 I went to a Beatles concert back in 64 or 65. You could hardly hear the show for all the training bra twats screaming the G-D heads off. And that was an outdoor venue. Inside and the noise would have blown the roof off. It wasn't much better at a Stones concert later that year.

617 What is it with teenaged girls and the squealing and screaming? The "tweens" too. It will spread like wildfire. One of 'em starts, and they all start.

I was reading about some of the "boy band" promoters, and this likely went on back in the day. They'd hire some girls to start screaming, and get all the girls started. If one started, then those boys must be scream-worthy, so they all start.

Some of the bands I've seen before:

Baroness
Demon Lung
Blue Oyster Cult

Some of the bands I listen to and will have a chance to see live for the first time:

Electric Wizard
Candlemass
Death
Yob
Bongripper
Mars Red Sky
The Cosmic Dead
Lumerians
Witch Mountain
Mondo Drag
Alice Cooper
Golden Void
Electric Citizen
Arthur Brown

I'm sure I'll discover a bunch more good bands.

Yes, a lot of them are doom metal, sludge metal, stoner metal, acid metal, and prog metal.

In particular, Arthur Brown did what Alice Cooper did stage-wise before there was an Alice Cooper.

I don't remember if I was in the crowd that night, but i sure could have been. Captures the atmosphere of the joint pretty well.


I gave John an old Armaco "silver bullet" microphone, that he used to use for playing harp. And years later, bought an old Pontiac station wagon off him, when he needed money for something.

That's too bad. As I'm remembering bits and pieces, I remember it being more mid-to-late '80s and doing a couple of seminars at the Brown Palace (that's still around, right?). One of them, on day 2, I took a guy from LA (who'd missed day 1) out there and nearly had to fireman's-carry him back to the hotel at 2 am. He looked horrible the next morning.

It was plugged in all day, which means... ?... it was using more energy than it charged? It didn't even have the tablet screen on - was linked to the big screen. Did I have too many of those fat 0's compared to the skinny 1's processed?

At least, it kept powered-up until the backups were done.

I don't understand power management on this thing. Seems like it runs off the battery, no matter what. But it can, as today, run down while charging. ? Why can't it charge the battery, but just run off the line power when it's plugged in? Not enough zots going down that little USB connector line to do both? What? What?

When I unplugged and moved to home base, I had to wait a while until it had recharged enough to boot up. Meanwhile, I looked at the thread via the cell.

Anyway, some group has hacked the Equation Group (this may be the Rooskies fighting back). Anyway, they want 1 million bitcoin (which is over $1/2 billion) to sell what they claim are the most sophisticated hacking tools ever seen.

The NSA can break into just about anything there is, according to this. They've got backdoors in the damn firmware of everything.

I was just reading about "The Equation Group", which is supposed to be
the NSA's elite hacking group. They've apparently got backdoors in hard
drive firmware, all the consumer hard drives. If we only knew how deep
they've penetrated and how much they "pwn", we'd crap our pants.


Anyway, some group has hacked the Equation Group (this may be the
Rooskies fighting back). Anyway, they want 1 million bitcoin (which is
over $1/2 billion) to sell what they claim are the most sophisticated
hacking tools ever seen.

The NSA can break into just about
anything there is, according to this. They've got backdoors in the damn
firmware of everything.

Here's the thing -- as sensational as those stories are....you have to subvert the program that is running. You can have as much backdoored disk firmware as you want, but you can still encrypt the data stored there and use it in RAM.

The problem is not whether it's in Windows, on a thumbdrive, over the network, or embedded in drive firmware....the problem is with the legal authorization of mass surveillance. After that, it's merely logistics and implementation.

691 Speaking of not downloading videos and missing half the fun on the ONT...

You know, I wasn't going to mention it, but exhaustion and the rum have overwhelmed my good judgment...

Don't click my nic! Don't watch the video of me singing five of my songs. I'm out of practice, the piano's out of tune, my voice is not even what it was when I was younger, I can't carry a tune or keep a beat, my songs are dumb, the audio and video quality is mediocre-to-abysmal, and I don't want to hear from you about how I wasted your time. Since I posted it last week, I've had 3 hits, which I think were all me checking the upload. Totally non-viral!

Lucky there's almost no one here but the wisest of the wise who will heed my warning, so I likely won't sucker anyone in.

And don't look for my second show, coming up later this week (that was the big project I was working on today).

OTOH, daughter told me tonight she (FINALLY!) read all of my story, Invulnerable. (Unlike my music, I half-heartedly recommend this story). As far as she could recall, she had previously only read some of the first part. She remarked, it took a really strange turn in the part 2. Heh. That was the idea. She admitted it might've even got dusty in a few places. Couldn't ask for more than to move the reader!

708 So, here I am thinking of tomorrow. I've got a couple of Dell desktop workstations that will take 5+ drives.




Drives B, C, D, E will naturally become a RAID array. Using 2T drives, it'll have a capacity of roughly 6T. RAIDed drives have to be the same size, so RAID5 partitions end up being the smallest available on a drive.



This leaves you with drive A, which I intend to put an SSD into. With Xen, I should have /, /boot, and dom0. I'd be interested in increasing performance with a swap partition and a disk cache.



I've got 480G of SSD to play with -- how should I allocate it to cache/swap/data/boot/dom0 and /?

730 Good Morning Morons. Today is Tuesday, August 16, 2016. On this day in 1916 the Migratory Bird Treaty between Canada and the United States was signed. We had a lot of discussion about this treaty and what was included in the treaty a few days ago. What we did not discuss was the fact that the act to implement this "treaty" was challenged by the State of MO in 1918. And the SCOTUS set out then as far back as 1918 with one of its incredibly stupid rulings in Missouri v. Holland. They said that the power to make treaties and the Supremacy clause overruled any other provision in State law. IOW, making a treaty was the equivalent of a Constitutional amendment even though it did not follow the process and have the same requirements as an amendment. Now I don't have any, or not many, problems with the Migratory Bird Act, but this ruling was absolute BS. It is good to know though that that ruling has been subsequently walked back by later rulings. But the act is still in force because nobody has challenged since 1918.

731 And speaking of trampling on the Constitution and rights, an Iowa farmer has been arrested for flying the flag upside down because a private Texas company which was building an oil pipeline on property that was his, but was confiscated using imminent domain. The pipeline was to run between his wellhead and his house and he was concerned that his pipe would be damaged during construction. Or at least that is what he said. I see this as an egregious violation of his rights under two provisions. First this is another KELO type POS where the government does a taking of private property to serve the interests of a private business, and not the government. And second, although I did not agree with it, the courts have ruled that desecration of the flag can not be stopped under the first amendment. And I really don't think flying it upside down is desecration anyway. Actually that is an international sign of distress.

New poll shows massive bipartisan opposition to the Obama policy of
bringing in muzzie thugs. But the FSA outweighs all of that and the DNC

There's a great vid of Bindel, a bull dyke if I've ever seen one, debating Milo at the University of (I think) Michigan.

But Beck was telling me yesterday that all of the complaints about the press are just Trump making excuses for when he loses.

It is interesting to watch how the GOPe types are willing to accept press bias as long as it hurts Trump.
