Nepal bans Indian police pair for 'fake' Everest climb

A government investigation concluded on Monday that photographs purporting to show the pair at the top of the world's highest mountain were faked.

Officials say the ban is intended to deter other climbers from making spurious and dishonest claims.

The pair's claims to have reached the peak in May were queried by climbers.

They argued that photos showing Dinesh and Tarakeshwari Rathod at the summit were obviously doctored.

Scott Johnson over at Powerline is putting his money where his mouth is, and it's a lesson for me. It's easy to spout off about boycotting those institutions and people whose hectoring and dangerous politics are, supposedly, intolerable. It's something else altogether to actually act! But My opening farewell reconsidered is exactly that....

Another song or two into the set, after an incredibly hot performance of "I Can't Help You Now," Raitt plugged the senatorial reelection campaign of Paul Wellstone. Wellstone tragically died in an airplane crash within days of the election. At the time, however, I was pulling mightily for Norm Coleman to defeat Wellstone in the upcoming election and disappointed that I had shelled out hard-earned dollars for the privilege of being lectured by a political moron. I walked out of the show a half hour into Raitt's set and resolved never to return.

I don't know what to say. It's like those little snail shells filled with tons of butter, garlic and parsley with a tiny snail. Only large and with pork. H/T NDH

******

Here's what's wrong with science. E.O. Wilson needs to shut the fvck up and stick to ants. When scientists take political positions it should call into question the research they have done. Clearly Wilson is a partisan, so why should I assume that his life's work is without bias? The "Father Of Biodiversity" Fears Trump And Nuclear War More Than Climate Change It's a HuffPo link, so really....don't bother. And I can't excerpt, because HuffPo coded their page to prevent cutting and pasting. So definitely don't click the link. In fact, cast it from your thoughts....forever.

Auguste Toulmouche, Sweet Doing Nothing, 1877

This painting has nothing to do with the linked article, from Woodpile Report, but the young lass is particularly fetching, and the languid come-hither look is rather pleasing.....and is that a bit of cleavage I see?

If you doubt the University of Colorado is where the Age of Enlightenment goes to die, where enstupiding is revered and enforced, see this:

"The point of departure for this course [Humanities 3990] is based on the scientific premise that human induced climate change is valid and occurring. We will not, at any time, debate the science of climate change, nor will the 'other side' of the climate change debate be taught or discussed in this course. Opening up a debate that 98% of climate scientists unequivocally agree to be a non-debate would detract from the central concerns of environment and health addressed in this course."


******

The Campus Left and the Alt-Right Are Natural Allies, which from an anti-freedom perspective makes perfect sense.

But what if instead of thinking of the campus left and the alt-right as mortal enemies, each bringing out perpetually heavier firepower in a long-running war of attrition, we thought of them as allies in a battle for the fate of liberalism? Because despite what they might say about each other, the radicalisms of 2016 actually align with one another more than they align with the Anglo-American Enlightenment tradition that has always occupied the American political center.

2 Let Them NOT Eat Cake

Marie Antoinette apocryphally responded to a comment that the people did not have bread to eat by saying "then let them eat cake." This is meant to suggest that the French aristocracy was aloof an did not understand the people's hunger. In Venezuela, President Maduro has responded to the calls for help alleviating hunger by... banning people from lining up at bakeries in the slim hope of getting a morsel of bread.

42 Shatner is a hoot. I'm worried about him though. Jesse Waters aired an interview with him he did at some Star Trek anniversary fest, and he's getting quite puffy-faced and had a giant cold sore/fever blister on the corner of his mouth.

Waters asked him did you realize how big Star Trek was going to be, and that you'd be at this point. Shatner said, yeah, back in '66, I was hoping that if this thing played out right, I'd be on FOX with Jesse Waters in 50 years.

Last night I was reading Instapundit, and he had a link to an article about Burning Man. There were a couple of commenters who said they used to go, but haven't been there in years.

One said that in the first few years (it began in 1986) they had a Drive-By Shooting Range.

Another said that it just wasn't the same after they banned firearms and explosives in the early 2000s.

Sounds like Burning Man was a bit more Hunter S. Thompson-ish in the old days. I mean, you could make some pretty big booms way out there on the playa as long as you didn't do it too close to camp.

98 Basically, hyperthreading is an Intel idea that splits a physical CPU core into two logical processors. It's the same physical processor, but it acts as two processors, running two execution threads in parallel. But it's just one physical core.

To be really used properly the OS must know about hyperthreading, and know the difference between logical and physical cores. If not, it can overload one physical core, and leave the other physical cores idle.

The idea to do that came about due to the fact that a certain thread of execution might stall waiting for data or something, and other independent instructions could be executed.

This what OS time sharing does in software, rapidly switching threads of execution. But this moved that to the processor itself, where the processor, knowing more its internal "pipelines" and all that, could make the decision of switching between threads of execution.

But again, the OS needs to know the difference between logical, hyperthread cores and real physical cores to properly make use of it.

128 Over the past few years I've become more and more worried about science as an enterprise. It seems as though it's getting steadily corrupted by Leftist politics.

Anthropology? Thoroughly Leftist since the days of Margaret Mead.
Psychology? Leftist, as Haidt has documented.
Sociology? Invented by Leftists as a tool.

But it's even creeping into the more quantifiable sciences. Ecology/Environmental Science? Thoroughly co-opted. Oceanography? Completely political. Climatology? Corrupted by billions in "climate change" money from Democrats in government and Soros shell foundations.

The biological sciences are under siege right now. There are whole topics they simply dare not study because it would provoke the ire of Leftists. Wilson himself was physically attacked back in the 1980s because his sociobiology theories contradicted the Holy Texts of Marxism.

So far the hardest of the hard sciences like geology, astronomy, physics, and chemistry are holding out.

Meanwhile Leftists continually push for more Diversity and Equality in the science students and faculties, which means skin color and vaginas (and, inevitably, political orthodoxy) are more important than intelligence and dedication.

And when they're not doing that they're dumbing down the curriculum in elementary and secondary schools because flunking students causes feelbadz and liberal Education majors don't really understand all that hard math stuff anyway. So fewer and fewer students arrive at college prepared to tackle rigorous science courses.

Meanwhile in the world beyond academia they fight any and all scientific innovations with fanatical frenzy: GMOs are EVIL! Fracking is EVIL! Nuclear power is EVIL! Chemicals are EVIL!

The crowning irony is that even as they smash and destroy science as an actual means of learning and understanding, Leftists wrap themselves in the white lab coat of Infallibility. You MUST do as they say because SCIENCE!

Looked commando, but they were wearing something that put a narrow bit of cloth over the crotch.

I don't know why they just don't go full porn and just flash their cooters.

Posted by: AshevilleRobert at September 06, 2016 11:16 PM (w+Jhj)

161 Point 1). I never understood why conservatives are so reluctant to organize boycotts against companies that spout off values and political views counter to their views, and then use their money to make those views into a reality. By buying their product you are supporting their political cause. I understand some companies we have no good alternative as of now (like Google), but we do with Facebook. I think it has to do with the "Big Business is always right" wing of the party which shuns that type of behavior. Thankfully they are leaving the party (big supporters of Hillary which confirms my suspicions of them) due to Trump, or Trump's supporters will leave them...either way it is a good thing.

Point 2. It is my opinion that "Alt-Right" is just a stupid term invented by the left and now used by the same "big business is always right" Republicans to paint anyone who cares about American sovereignty as a wild eyed bigot and uneducated buffoon. I have no idea who Team "Alt-Right" is but it must be better than the average Republican politician when it comes to principles and common sense. Probably that is why it is attractive, now if I can find out where the sign up sheet is for this team I shall put my name to it, but considering it does not exist, like Team Islamophobia, I guess I will have to wait.

Seriously - Lesson Number One in defeating the Progressives: Don't accept their speech codes or laws as legitimate, even if they sound that way, because they are not playing for mutual understanding but total victory. There is always another shoe to drop. So ban the Confederate flag as racist, leads to ripping down the American flag too.

As far as I am concerned, the "alt-right" is mainly white people who are sick and tired of being punching bags. Political Correctness and speech codes are aimed explicitly at white people, particularly white men. Some of us are not putting up with it and are fighting back.

America was founded and built by white English-speaking people. If we become a minority, America as we've known it will cease to exist. That's simply a fact. Flood the nation with Third World people and we will become a Third World nation.

Posted by: rickl at September 06, 2016 11:37 PM (sdi6R)


The way to crush these arguments: which Third World country does your interlocutor consider to be the most successful? They will usually try to evade answering that question, for obvious reasons, but if pressed will plump for a country that was built and run by whites, and hasn't yet been completely destroyed, e.g., South Africa.

I used to compare Mexico with California. Swap the populations, and inside of two generations, Mexicans would be crossing the border to go south and mow lawns there.


We all know this is true. Polls have indicated that a majority of black Africans wish whites still ran Rhodesia. They didn't have a say, but the country ran well.

Posted by: redc1c4 at September 06, 2016 11:39 PM (eWPDq)



Let me fix that for you. Switched channels midway through the local news, to Fox news to see what was on. Blather O'Really, but at least he had a Trump interview underway.

Then, that commercial slithered onto the screen, and I recalled that previous ONT.

Otherwise? I've got the assless-chaps minimum number of channels from Comcast to even get a signal. A TV hound, I am not.

But, they're the only purveyor of high-speed 'net here on this Gulf of Mexico Sandbar, and so I've got the 10 y/o 42 in. HDTV flat screen fed from their signal.

That's not quite the description of a TV hound now, izzit?

And sadly, it's the limited number of channels that brings about the repetitive nature of such ads. Which then one begins to, on occasion, deconstruct or spontaneously realize the underlying theme behind the ad-man's efforts.

I'd happily live with no TV whatsoever, but the g/f unit would violently object, which exceeds the allowable "diminishing returns" threshold.

So, we have some TV here.

Living on the boat, I had a 13 in. glass tube teevee, rabbit ears, and got two channels. And was perfectly happy with that.

Posted by: Jim at Sep



It's worse than you imagined:

Allstate is refreshing its "You're in Good Hands with Allstate" motto of more than 60 years by rolling out a new campaign: "It's good to be IN Good Hands." The change is meant to modernize the 85-year-old brand for a new wave of younger-minded consumers and will be buttressed by a series of TV spots featuring celebrities including Tim Gunn, Adam DeVine and Leslie Jones, all of whom are popular with the millennial set.

It is, but I wasn't referring to that. Frankly, I think that that's fair enough; you got the bar up, presumably you can get it back down.

I'm talking about motherfuckers who, when doing squats or bench press, get under a bar, lower it about six inches, then push it back up (either with arms or legs), then crow about it.

Squat: thighs AT LEAST PARALLEL to the floor

Bench: bar ALL THE WAY DOWN to the chest.

Lowering the weight six inches, then giving a mighty grunt and locking it back out, is bullshit, IMO. Yet I see that all the time, by people who are obviously proud of how much they "lift."

304 Gonna wander off and lube as many 30-06 cases as fatigue and my patience will permit, but before I do, I was sort of thinking geology is in fact one of the key areas where climastrology is debunked.


"Anthropogenic climate change" people, after all, have the entire burden here. Their conjecture, er, highly implausible hypotheis, is just that, and needs to be tested like all other hypotheses in real science.


And the geologic record (which, apparently, is harder to "correct/adjust" than ground temperature records, ahemm), I believe, constitutes an insuperable obstacle all by itself to their hypothesis. This whole inter-glacial thing, well, it's a thing, and obviously man had nothing to do with it, and its forces obviously dwarf every "factor" being bandied about today into insignificance.


Of course AFAIK nothing - not predictive or backwards-run tests of their models, nor the geologic record, nor non-quantitative proxy "data" like recent human experience (10th Legion growing their own wine grapes in Anglia, the Medieval Warming Period, the Little Ice Age, etc.) - supports their hypothesis.

327 From the "the left and alt-right are natural allies" article:

The alt-right is more diffuse, and diverse in its tactics and objectives, than the PC left. It encompasses sophisticated neo-reactionary Silicon Valley engineers like Curtis Yarvin, 1990s-style white nationalists like Jared Taylor, and legions of race-baiting online trolls with Pepe the frog as their Twitter avatars. But they are united by their contempt for pluralistic liberal democracy, their view that Western Civilization is in a profound and perhaps irreversible state of decline due to the empowerment of women and minorities, and their open embrace of white identity politics, and even white separatism, as the only solution.

This is fucking retarded. The "alt-right" is made up of non-evangelical non-GOPe millenial conservatives who are socially liberal enough to attempt rapprochement with non-SJW leftists in order to take down both parties. It's the libertarianism we always wished we had. The end.

Agreed.

And I'm thinking that a Trump win, and even better, a very convincing Trump win, will very much bitch slap the Humes and his running dog lakeyes did I get the soviet agitprop lingo right? some pause as to their incessant tongue baths of the left and GOPe (apologies for redundancy) fellow travelers.

Though I was a very ardent Cruz fan, I know how to read the leaves at the bottom of the teacup.

338 . And I can't excerpt, because HuffPo coded their page to prevent cutting and pasting.

Takes two seconds to work around that. Just do "View Source Code" (Command-option-U on a Mac) to see the html underneath the page. There, the text is effortlessly copy-and-pastable because its raw text unaffected by the commands the Webmaster put in.

I use that command all the time, usually to get around paywalls -- you can go to a NY Times or Wall Street Journal or whatever article that is "off-limits" to you, and you will get a big notice blocking out the text, telling you to register to view it -- but just go "View Source" and you can simply read the article anyway. Simple. And, as mentioned, it also works for copying and pasting.

So, from the HuffPo article under discussions, I just copied this:

"Nukes aside, Wilson said climate change is the biggest environmental challenge facing the globe. Second to that is the loss of plant and animal species to extinction, which he said makes the globe less stable and is a “terrible, needless destruction of our most sanctioned heritage.”"

That's always been the only real value of Fox, besides Hume way back before he lost his senses, and Brett Baier, who is also many levels above his other network peers in terms of brainpower and professionalism.


Haven't seen TV "news" since probably 2007. But I know in the past Fox, for all its blemishes, was the only (occasional) source on TV that offered more than the increasingly extreme, grossly distorted crap churned out by the brain-dead Beltway usual suspects.

I read that article too. It is a thoughtful article for sure. But the author appeals too much IMO to "lifeboat ethics", or that the ends justify the means. Certainly if you are on Flight 93, and your only other choice is certain death, then sure, you rush the cockpit against the hijackers towards a very uncertain future, which might be death, but might not be either. So if you really think that the 2016 election is like Flight 93, where your two choices are either: certain death (Hillary), or maybe death (Trump) then of course it makes sense to take the gamble and go for Trump.

But I don't think the author really made the case that the situation right now, at this moment, is *that* dire. Do people sincerely believe that the literal end of the Republic - not just some figurative weakening of it, but the literal, actual, end of the Republic, with secession, civil war, martial law, total suspension of the Constitution, etc., etc. - will be upon us if Hillary is elected? Because that is what I take to be the analogy of the "certain death" position put forth by the authors.


No doubt the trajectory of America is going in the wrong direction, but instead of seeing it like Flight 93 hurtling at 500 mph towards a very rapid end, I see it more like a gigantic boat slowly lumbering towards the rocky shore. Sure, the boat had better turn around before it hits the rocks, otherwise the boat will sink. But we have some time left to right the course of the ship. Not a large amount of time, no, and the longer we wait, the more drastic measures *will* become necessary. But, if in our desperation, we decide to turn the captaincy of the boat over to a guy like, say, oh I don't know, Joseph Hazelwood (of Exxon Valdez infamy) - we will be making our problems worse, not better, in the long run.

So yes if you accept the author's premise that the very fate of the Republic hinges on the outcome of this election, then his argument makes a great deal of sense. But I question that premise.

When Hillary is being dragged to the finish line, as fucked in the head she is--for God's sake, she makes the Cryptkeeper cringe--one has to surmise that those who are dragging her almost-corpse know that their time is limited, not to mention ungodly sums of money is on the line.

If that evil, sickly, brain-damaged crone is president, you will see how dire shit gets.

380 Ol' Gowdy is trying to grow a beard. He was my Congressman until, hell, 2012, when SC got a new congressional district, and they shaved off my chunk and put it in whats-his-name's district. Duncan.

Anyway, the other day, watching him on something, I made some remark about his scraggly looking beard. This blamed ol' gal that hangs around made some remark and got up. She came back with a mirror, shoved it my face, and said "Physician, heal thyself!"

She had a point. I hadn't shaved in about a week and a half, and I was looking more damn scraggly and ratty than Gowdy.

385 AO is very much a black rifle house, so from what i've seen, they would be good folks to talk to.

as i related previously, when we were there (and bought the Colt and an off breed 1903A3) there was a black lesbian couple in there asking questions about firearms and personal protection, and the staff was patient, professional, informative and accommodating...

no pressure, no condescension, no judgment, just informative, honest and encouraging.

where is the reloading store? with a Barrett 416 and a Steyr HS-460 joining the collection, ima need MOAR reloading stuff.

by the by: we're headed back down there fairly soon, since we have MOAR pickups to make, so drop me a line at my nick + @drunkenbastards.org, if you wanna have a mini-MoMe at AO. i'll be the fat bastard with the hawt blonde and unusual firearms.

390 red, the reloading store is (rather odd name) La Mesa Collectibles. Near the airport (former Camp Gillespie, home of west coast Marine paratrooper training when it was briefly undertaken during The Big War).


Haven't been there in a while. They had a decent selection of dies and projectiles, little powder (this was during the last panic). Lots of knives, holsters, old stuff (hence the name).

If Hillary wins, the literal end is not far off. Not figurative. We get one more Kagan or Sotomayor on the Supreme Court, and the law is meaningless except as a means to punish enemies of the regime and promote The Agenda.



Also, there will be a very fast "pathway to citizenship" created for illegal immigrants and "refugees", and just as with California after the 1986 Amnesty, several on-the-brink states with high immigration, and even safe Red states such as Texas, will flip solid blue and there will never be a Republican President or congressional majority ever again.

You're right about that. I'm not even talking about the economics, I'm talking about the political realities of it. The global economic system has already hit itself with circle-running torpedoes, its ass is up in the air, and the bridge is still ordering changes in speed to try to fix the problem.

It's going down no matter what happens, at this point. As I've always said, what can't go on forever doesn't. It's about to stop going on in a very spectacular way, and it's a question of when and not if.

Court, and the law is meaningless except as a means to punish enemies of
the regime and promote The Agenda.



One could argue that this is the situation that we already have, with the Constitution meaning only what five judges in robes decide it to mean. So putting another Kagan or Sotomayor on the court, while undoubtedly bad, wouldn't represent some sudden paradigm shift away from some supposed state of constitutional literalism that we have today. To really fix this problem, I think, would take more than just appointing another conservative judge. Heavens knows that they are not in the main immune from bending the constitution to serve their will (Roberts anyone?). I think it would take something more fundamental, perhaps term limits for SCOTUS judges such as has been proposed earlier, perhaps some check on SCOTUS' power that doesn't make them the absolute final authority on these matters, letting Congress or the States overrule their decisions in some way.



Also, there will be a
very fast "pathway to citizenship" created for illegal immigrants and

Well I could say a lot more on this, but I'm tired to be honest. But in brief: even if we had some sort of full amnesty, the parties would readjust and realign to better serve their respective coalitions and factions. Keep in mind the Republican and Democratic parties of today look a lot different than they did of even 50 years ago.


Furthermore: if we import a Mexican immigrant, and that immigrant votes for socialism because that immigrant has always favored socialism from the home country, then that is our fault for letting that immigrant in, for permitting that immigrant to be allowed to vote for socialism here. HOWEVER, if that immigrant's children, and their children's children, *continue* to vote for socialism, even though they are born and raised here, then it's no longer a problem associated with immigration, it is a problem associated with assimilation to what we might consider core foundational beliefs of what it means to be an American. That is an entirely different question. Why, even after the mass amnesty in 1986, did California turn from red to blue, but Texas turned from blue to red? I think it's because Texas overall does a better job at inculcating American values into its immigrant population, while California tries to go all multi-culti. Having a border wall won't change that dynamic.

443 Chi: I had never heard of sunflower butter until tonight. Maybe I should get out more often? Sounds good. Just added it (or seeds to make my own) to my grocery list. Thanks.

You're welcome. It's been a progression from peanut butter (I now relegate peanuts to the same not-for-human-consumption category as soybeans) to almond butter to sunflower seed butter. Almond is good, but tasty almonds are expensive.

Sunflower is delicious, but you have to get the kind that are not stale, oil-spoiled, shelled-too-long. Gray and greasy tasting. The worst are often organic etc health food store sunflower nuts, possibly because the turnover is slow. Best is the Wal-Mart bags that seem to be fresh all the time.

445 It may be whole wheat or even non-gluten bread, with sunflower seed butter and whole-fruit blueberry sugar-free puree...

...but it's still a basic Peter Pan peanut butter and Welch's grape jelly on Wonder Bread direct-from-heaven gift.

-----------------
the socks?
OK. Maybe a slight exaggeration. But I did grow up in used clothes Most of my jeans (dungarees, Mom called them) went from my brother to the kid down the street, and when he outgrew them, I got them. The patches had pat he's on them. Literally. Hell, they were probably second hand when my brother first got them.
Think any kids today would wear shit like that? Hah! I see 9 years olds with $700 phones & Nike shoes that cost more than my electric bill, and just shake my head...

Good morning, btw.

Vox Day has his 16 Points: https://voxday.blogspot.co.nz/2016/08/what-alt-right-is.html

See Millennial Woes interviews Richard Spencer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8X0NMmZAc8

Ramzpaul discusses it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tpA8lnFG8o

Don't waste your time though if you're afraid of hearing white people unabashedly defending western civilization and white identitarianism.

tl;dr: The altright is a white identity group that supports ethnostates for all nationalities. Basically, every ethnicity should have their own Israel.

No, no. What they said was that there are 11 million climate scientists who believe in global warming. That was pretty steady for about 8 years and then they changed to saying that there were 12 million climate scientists who believe in climate change ... and that we can't deny global warming[\s] climate change because we'll be breaking up families and that's mean.

474 Good Morning Morons. Today is Wednesday, September 07, 2016. On this day in 1916 railroad employees won the right to Workers' compensation by Federal Employers Liability Act (39 Stat. 742; 5 U.S.C. 751). This showed the impact of the burgeoning age of progressivism in the US and the beginning of the fall of the Constitution. The name of this law was wholly false as the law only applied to RR workers. A similar law had been passed in 1906 but the Supremes struck it down because it was not limited to workers involved in interstate commerce. Congress got some new court members and went back to the trough. We have workers comp for everybody now. This is how the socialists work.

475 Trump used the FBI data dump from last week to blast Scankles in NC. Somehow the pollsters think NC could be a tossup this election as well. I know we have a LOT of locusts coming into the Raleigh - Durham area to what is known as the research triangle and that is giving the socialists a boost. Along with the heavy black vote in NC that was good for Obama making a close race there. However those black votes are not going to turnout for Scankles. She will lose NC. Obama won by a razor thin edge in 2008 but Romney won by 2% in 2012. I project Scankles will lose by 5% or more in NC.
