Shooting Gangster with Jerry Miculek

I wish he would do a video on how drinking affects his shooting. My bet is that even hammered off his ass he would still outshoot 99.9% of the world.

Using Krugman to beat the snot out of Jason Furman, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors...a minimum wage cheerleader:

Can you explain why employers must be forced by the state to raise wages if raising wages inspires workers to exert so much more, and so much better, effort that the value to employers of the resulting decrease in employee turnover and increase in output covers the cost of the higher wages? And was Paul Krugman wrong to reason that “there is a fundamental flaw in the [efficiency-wage] argument: Surely the benefits of low turnover and high morale in your work force come not from paying a high wage, but from paying a high wage ‘compared with other companies’ – and that is precisely what mandating an increase in the minimum wage for all companies cannot accomplish”?

Climate experts say that July 2016 was the hottest month ever. In the United States, it was one of the least hot months ever.

Harvard to Student Club: Lie About Your Policies and You'll Be OK

Harvard University's ill-conceived decision to blacklist students who join off-campus, single-sex social organizations continues to backfire, forcing administrators to make exceptions to the overbroad policy

Can you guess where this is going? Care to take a stab at exactly who or what is going to get an exception?

The latest one would permit an off-campus women's club to remain female-only without violating the policy that supposedly punishes "gender-based discrimination." This strongly suggests that the real motivation behind the policy is not sex or gender discrimination at all -- it's that the Harvard administration simply doesn't like certain groups and is willing to be as deceptive as is necessary to try to eliminate them.

I know...I know...you had no idea there was gambling going on in this establishment.

Okay...this is geeky but interesting...

Uncertainty Intervals and the Olympics

It is quite usual to see examples of the media getting notions of error and significance wrong. But yesterday I saw a story where someone actually dusted these tools off and explained why the Olympics don't time events to the millionths of a second, despite clocks that are supposedly that accurate:

Don't like Twitter because censorship just cramps your style? Or maybe the aggressive leftist cant of your Facebook feed is getting more and more unpleasant? Well, here's a new social media company that claims its entrant in the crowded field of unbridled self expression and narcissism is free of political considerations. Gab may be that platform, except it's only in a closed beta right now, so you will have to wait patiently...

EPA Watchdog Calls Out Biofuel Boondoggle

Biofuels -- really just ethanol -- should be renamed Iowa votes first so let's buy their votes. Even granting expensive oil, it is a colossal waste of farmland and water for a return that is nothing short of a catastrophe. Now of course with cheap oil and American fracking it's even more ridiculous. It doesn't save fuel, it damages engines, it adds complexity to engine design, and it is so obviously a political payoff that I am shocked every day that America doesn't rise up and demand that we get to burn good old cheap gasoline instead of expensive vodka in our cars. And my personal pet peeve? Ethanol takes thousands of acres out of food production. People on the margin of the starvation graph will die. Not in this country, but somewhere, people are dying because of our ethanol policy.

Our biofuels policy was meant to boost our energy security while saving the environment, but it fails on both counts. It's a remarkable example of a policy finding a sour spot, and the only stakeholder that benefits from this farce is the U.S. corn industry.

31 So here is a question, how to people keep sane as things keep getting worse and worse around us?

I've tried stepping away from politics, but you can't.

The left has intruded so, so deeply into what used to be outside of the realms of politics. I have to keep my mouth shut and pretend that a man in a dress is a woman, and that a couple of guys in an "open marriage" are...married. I have to pretend that espn isn't SJW crap and that all the value signalling of my peers and associates isn't preening shit. I have to pretend that Hillary Clinton isn't an abomination that will be the end of the country and that sexism and racism are the biggest challenges America face...

34 The term "mondegreen" originated with some old Irish folk song, about a handsome young lord who rode off to his first battle and was killed. I forget the name of the song, but it ends something like this...

They carried him back to his castle,
and laid him on the green.


Due to it being an Irish song, the singer's Gaelic accent tends to make it sound like...

They carried him back to his castle,
and Lady Mondegreen.

57 I fought the lawn and the lawn won.

Heh. That's been the case with me lately. July wasn't a bad month at all, but August has been brutal. I skipped mowing the lawn for three weeks in a row because I didn't want to set foot outdoors at all, much less do any work out there. When the weeds start growing taller than the grass, you know things are getting out of hand.

On Sunday evening a storm came through and cooled things down somewhat. On Monday I looked at the five-day forecast and saw that I would have two or three days of decent weather, then it would be back up to 90 by Friday. I don't like to do yard work after working all day, but it was now or never. So I finally mowed the lawn last night. It was getting dark by the time I finished.

Did you ever read any of Mark Steyn's stuff on Sinatra? Last year he posted pieces twice a week about Sinatra's top 100 songs (in his opinion) in honor of the 100th anniversary of Sinatra's birth. It was a fascinating series. I read every one.

And last September we saw Frank Sinatra Jr. during his tour commemorating his father's centennial. It was a really good show. And not too many months later he died. Such a shame.

(I assure you I had nothing to do with it.)

Pretty well. Son is working for Kroger and after 4 months they're, sort of, promoting him. He'll be doing the custodial work there, but it's twice as many hours and a $2/hour raise which is a big deal for a 16 year-old.

The guy they'd planned on training just disappeared after being hired so they asked Son if he'd like the job and said he was the first of their current employees they thought of.

116 All this talk of "I fought the lawn and the lawn won" reminds me of that time last summer, when my best friends received a notice from their HOA about the weeds in their front yard, with the threat of a $100 fine.

I remembered all the time I'd spent pulling weeds in my parents' yard as a teenager, as punishment for my various youthful indiscretions, and I told my friends, "I'll take care of this."

I grabbed their shiny new weed-puller and got to work. I pulled up hundreds of weeds over the course of several hours.

By the time I was done, my right hand had swollen to look like one of those surgical gloves Howie Mandel used to pull down over his face and inflate by exhaling through his nose.

And their lawn ended up looking like Christian Bale's hair in the movie American Hustle.

But the HOA rescinded its warning about the weeds. This time, the lawn did not win.

TX campus carry is only legal for CHL holders yes, and the guns have to be concealed on campus, so the dildos should be concealed too.

Gibson necks are typically wider and flatter, while Fender necks tend to be narrower and more arched. This makes them best at different things -- on a Gibson, the strings are farther apart, so it's easier to precisely hit the string you're looking for; on a Fender, it's easier to reach all the strings without having six-inch fingers.

leave their tables when you blink
every dog must have his every day
every drunk must have his drink

Don't wait for answers
just take your chances
Don't ask me why

All your life you had to stand in line
Still you're standing on your feet
All your choices make you change your mind
Now your calendar's complete

Don't wait for answers
just take your chances
Don't ask me why

You can say the human heart is only make believe
and I am only fighting fire with fire
but you are still the victim of the accidents you leave
as sure as I'm the victim of desire

All the servants in your new hotel
throw their roses at your feet
fool them all but baby I can tell
you're no stranger to the street

Don't ask for favors
don't talk to strangers
Don't ask me why

Yesterday you were an only child
now your ghosts have gone away
you can kill them in the classic style
now you parlez vous Francais

Don't look for answers
you took your chances
Don't ask me why

Don't ask me why...

253 Guitars? I prefer to play a Fender Telecaster or Stratocaster simply because of the large radius of the fretboard. The Gibson and Epiphone have an almost flat fretboard and make playing more difficult since my wrist only turns about 45 degrees since a motorcycle accident and make bar chords a chore and painful. The irony is my last name in real life is Gibson...

255 Warbler,

Way back in the 80s, the morning guy I worked with did a spot-on impression of Conway Twitty. He'd do bits where "Conway" would sing current Top 40 hits. I wish I had his cover of "You Give Love A Bad Name". It was hilarious, and got some Conway fan angry enough to threaten to blow up the studio.

Local media never announces that a GOP candidate is coming to town unless it is to give information on where the protest will be held.

Trump came to Roanoke a month ago to do a townhall, about 5K showed up to try to go to it, convention center's main room help 1200, they put another 800 in an adjacent room.

Did the local media publicize the Trump event? No. They did publicize that there would be a protest at a certain location and gave the contact info of the organizers. About 30 protesters were out there, but they got more media coverage than Trump/Pence.

Back in March, went to a Rubio rally. No media announcement of the event, about 5K came to it on a Sunday night. Again, 30 protesters outside the event. Guess who got the vast majority of coverage on the news that night?

So, little family history here....I have an uncle (by marriage) who can sing nonexistent songs in real time. They have rhymes, verses, bridges, and choruses -- nice little melodies -- and actually make more sense than about 35% of pop tunes on the radio. He doesn't have the greatest voice, but has an ok tenor. But if you try to figure out where that song came from, you can't....he generated it himself in real-time (he actually might have thought of the pieces separately, but the first time the song was ever heard in meatspace was when he sang it [which was usually the last time it was heard, as well]).

My dad, by contrast, could not carry a tune in a bucket. Gregorian chants typically have more sense of rhythm or melody. He would oddly recite some things, however, at odd times -- but with the same cadence, each time. Being that my uncle could just invent stuff on the fly, it was assumed that my dad just had this set of weird chant-y things he had dreamed-up that he liked.


Then my mom found a copy of this in a remainder bin -- https://www.amazon.com/Gunfighter-Ballads-Trail-Songs-Starburst/dp/B01BLSI420/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8qid=1472009945sr=8-3keywords=marty+robbins+gunfighter+ballads

(sorry about chopping w/CRs, but didn't want to risk blog embiggening).

With a mixture of amazement, horror, and pity, we soon realized that 80% of the weird chanting stuff he did was trying to sing the songs of this album. Of course, this only made it worse to listen to my dad -- because we then knew how it should sound.

The one song that sets me off is that one by Sheryl Crow about having fun in the sun. More precisely, she's singing about how she's going to have fun in the sun, and that she also intends to tell everyone to light up.

Live and let live, I say - so, Sheryl Crow, how about you stop singing this stupid, awful song and you can have fun in the sun three minutes sooner? And maybe this isn't a good time for me to do the same, so I'll lighten up when my schedule permits. In short: Shut up and go to the beach, Sheryl Crow, and you get what you want and I get what I want; win-win. Agreed?

342 You know, sometimes that "wacky Japanese" thing can produce interesting results.

From the Wikipedia page for the manga series Upotte!! -

"Unlike an average school, all the students are actually anthropomorphized guns, training to one day become a useful weapon, and is divided up into elementary school (sub-machine guns), middle school (assault rifles), and high school (battle rifles/ sniper rifles). They are capable of drawing the weapons they represent out of thin air..."

Yes, it's a series about cute girls who also happen to be guns. The main character's name is "Funco", and she's an FN FNC.



Aside from that little bit, I know absolutely nothing about the series. But the apoplexy that the series would no doubt induce in any SJWs that stumbled across it (both for the usual fan service, and because GUNS!!!) has got to count for something.

375 Crossing the Japanese stream with the Pop Culture stream, here.

Watched bits of the new "Better Late Than Never" show, with Shatner, Bradshaw, Winkler and Foreman, along with their keeper/minder/facilitator, whose name escapes me at the moment.

They goofball around good bits of Japanese culture, food, entertainment and scenery.

Interesting mix amongst 'em. Winkler is the wimp in the mix. Shatner and Bradshaw play offa each other, big time.

The show goes on next to other Oriental countries. But I think Anna Puma and our other experts on all things in the world of things Japan, would have the more informed opinion than mine.

I mean, as I said, I haven't actually checked it out yet.

We haven't tried eggs. I've heard they're hard to trap. We put the tuna outside the cage, it didn't eat it.
I put a trail cam near the cage. The fox is checking it out. The other thing is I may need to camo the cage better.
There is plenty of food also. Rats, bunnies, squirrels, possum, birds.

Posted by: CaliGirl at August 24, 2016 12:51 AM (fsFHj)

465 Best way to trap a fox, is to dress well, spend money like water, know what food and wine to order, and be strong, polite, confident, worldly.

Suave and debonair.

How you stuff all that into a Hav-a-Hart trap though, I haven't a clue.

469 I've used all the Havahart traps - from the smallest to the Tardis sized. One thing I've learned: hang the bait on a wire. Helps spread the scent. Target vermin will have to step on trigger plate. Peanut butter works well & cats don't dig it. Melon rinds too.

The problem is that foxes are smrt right? So a smart fox isn't going to get any where near a trap when the hunting is good.

Why not wait until the weather gets rough and they are a little bit more needy?

And beyond that you are never going to catch the whole group in the same trap.

It might make sense to just make noise, find their hole and scare them off. I do that with raccoons.

I can't really stomach my own party anymore. Really want to start a new one for the next election,. I'm going to grudgingly help put Trump over the top this time, then get to work building something different, because all of the PACmen, consultant-industrial complex, and party machinery people (such as Priebus) keep thinking that it's all about them and forcing the base to go along with their agenda. We've been trying to fix the Republican Party from within for 8 years, and it's not working.


My goal is simple, it's a reform movement, it's the governmental version of a factory reset. We throw out everything but the Constitution and its amendments, and go back to basics. We apply the 10th Amendment harshly. Social issues aren't in the Constitution, thus should be handled by the states. There's no sense in trying to force Alabama to be San Francisco, or vice versa. Instead of one-size-fits-none, you'd have 50 different experiments in democracy. Success would be emulated, failures would be discarded, and we'd all improve for it. Corporate welfare is right out. No stimulus, no bailouts, no subsidies, nothing.

He thought it was the feral cat I feed until he got close. It ran the other way into the underbrush. We couldn't find it. It wasn't startled by the tractor either so I'm thinking it lives nearby.

506 Arbalest has a funny thing he does where he explicates something technical and says, "there -- I've helped". It may not be relevant or even accurate, and it's said in an ironic way that recognizes these limitations, but it's well-meant.



There is currently a new paragraph in the Ubuntu Security FAQ (as of this morning) because "I've helped". It's heading is, "There is a security update available that claims it is a "Fake sync from Debian" -- should I be concerned?" That's not the actual question I asked, but is close enough.

I would start with a kill trap with a newly killed rat as bait.

Maybe I should start one. My crazy idea is to hijack the Reform Party. It no longer exists in any meaningful sense, and it wouldn't take many people at all to hijack it. The name's got recognition, Reform is a good word to describe what we want, and the best part is that it's still on the ballot in most states, despite being an abandoned shell.

So why not be the hermit crab and move in? It'd be a delicious irony to turn the spoiler party into the movement that makes the Republicans go the way of the Whigs and defeats the DC Establishment in both parties.

I just got the first and second games of that series for a grand total of $4.48. I've heard a lot of good things about those games, and I just couldn't resist them at that price.

Anyway, good night again, everyone, and this time I really mean it!

525 Lord Huron -- Fool for Love

OK, that is a weird coincidence -- I just saw Lord Huron at a music festival (Outside Lands).

They were -- how to put this gently? -- completely soporific. I couldn't tell if they were tuning up, or actually playing a song.

Despite this, 50,000 people were screaming in ecstasy in the audience.

I thought forgivingly to myself, "OK, maybe this is like the Beatles at Shea Stadium -- they're playing a great set, but it's impossible to tell because of all the noise the audience is making."

So I went off to see another band (who were also mediocre, as every performer at the festival seemed to be). (Thank god I had gotten in for free, or I'd have been pissed.)

So, the video embedded in this thread above has finally given me a chance to hear what the big deal is about Lord Huron, heard clearly this time without the screaming.

And...they were just as boring and unremarkable on their studio recording as they were live.

So -- what am I missing here? Why the hubbub over Lord Huron?

It's not that I think they're bad -- it's just that can't discern anything remarkable or memorable about their music. A solid "meh."

Got a chance to meet fellow 'ron "filbert".

Since the next WorldCon is outside of North America (which is defined to include Hawaii but not Greenland...), there will be a North American Science Fiction Convention (NASFiC) in Puerto Rico next year.

The 2018 WorldCon will be in San Jose, California. I'm already a supporting non-attending member (so I can nominate and vote on the Hugos, in large part because I get free copies of all the nominees), but might go to full attending because it's an excuse to meet up with Cthulhu, who lives in the Bay Area at present, again.

Good Morning Morons. Today is Wednesday, August 24, 2016. On this day in 1857 the Panic of 1857 began, setting off one of the most severe economic crises in United States history.

The economy was largely recovered within a few years.

Hillary Clinton is riding a summer wave in the polls yet the Democratic nominee has left the campaign trail in recent days to fundraise in America's wealthiest enclaves, potentially giving rival Donald Trump the opening he needs as he works to regain his political footing.


The latest poll nationwide is an unreliable NBC poll with Clinton at +5 which is actually down from their previous poll which had her at +6. The last Rass poll had Clinton at 41 and Trump at 39. A statistical dead heat. Fox has never been "conservative" but now it is rapidly becoming just another left wing Democrat PR group.

The illegal apologists say there were only 3 illegals who tried to vote. Sure, there were only three that got caught because there is no effort to catch them when they don't have to show ID.

626 There is some serious polling shenanigans going on this cycle. Last month Survey USA did a poll for the Salt Lake Tribune that showed Trump tied with clinton in Utah. There was talk even here about Trump losing the State.

PP just released a poll that shows Trump up by 15 in Utah over clinton.

Remember the PP poll was conducted after the worst weeks his campaign ever had and with the media in full blown attack mode on him to boot. Plus this poll was done after McMuffin joined the race, who is polling at 9%.

Something is not adding up here.

I do homeschool, and we haven't started yet. He has 3 outside classes that will start the day after Labor Day. I have the rest of his stuff here, and I've told him that I will be giving him little things to do soon so that he can get a little bit out of the way before everything starts proper.

He is doing American History (with me) and American Government (with a wonderful teacher) this year and I am planning lots of field trips. We did a ton when his siblings were younger but he was in a stroller for most of them!

His wife is ill with cancer; He just quit in May a better paying job to become a pastor. I think right now he's feeling weak and spiritually low and seems to have the understanding that if his faith was stronger his wife would be getting better. I suggested to him that he not set himself up for a spiritual test in that way. and to be gentle with himself We often feel spiritually weak and low when things are not going the way we'd like, but it's not helpful to have faith in God working in a certain way rather than faith in God for God's self because then we may be set up for disappointment. Anyway, he's a good guy. and a good husband He doesn't need to feel like he's letting his wife down. So hard.

Thx.
