Monday Night Overnight Open Thread (9/19/16) [Mis. Hum.]

Good Monday evening. In days of yesteryear Monday nights this time of year were a big thing. Monday Night Football was on a major network. Hell, there was even a song about it.


Now Monday Night Football is on Cable's PC Network ABC/ESPN and is a joke.


Perhpas the NFL will expand. I could see Kaepernick playing for the Cameroon Chuckle-Heads.


But not all football teams and player are jerks. Sometimes football players are unselfish.

Terrorism: The use of violent acts to frighten the people in an area as a way of trying to achieve a political goal.


On September 20, 2001 President George W. Bush declared to a joint session of Congress and the American public that the USA had declared a "war on terror". We are still fighting the war on terror. But, we have elected and appointed officials who won't call a spade a spade.


St. Cloud, MN is a city of about 61,000 souls located in central MN. It is the home of St.Cloud State. Your typical peaceful Mid-Western City.


Shoppers at a local mall were approached by a man. When asked if they were Muslim and answered no they were stabbed. Yes the phrase Allahu Akbar was mentioned.

I would say that is terrorism. Not necessarily if you are highly paid and skilled Police Chief.

Terrorism is in the eye of the beholder. After a mass-stabbing in a Minnesota mall, the local police chief made a statement to the effect of, "But we still don't know if this is terrorism."



Yes, a young Somali man who stabs people and chants Allahu Akbar is a crazed St. Cloud State Huskie fan and not a radical disciple of ISIS.


Once upon a time, manners were something. Maybe they should make a return? What say you Horde?


While we are at it the special snowflake generation needs a wake up call or 3.

I'm, like, a dumbass. I, like, can't function."


Don't care for math? Come on over here. There usually isn't much math.


The parents of these dumbasses snowflakes have failed their children and society.

Sadly this was predicted many years ago.

Our neighbors to the north will impose a national carbon price on the provinces. This should help out their economy. Eh?


Lawmakers in AZ foul up.


But government foul ups are not limited to states. Cities can be just as stupid.

Fouled up laws. Stupid government leaders. Where does this leave the private charitable foundations involved with governments? Why it leaves a certain former President and his slippery wife and current presidential nominee with millions.

Bubba expects us to believe the unbelievable.

Best laid plans of engineers and men. Sometimes don't work out either.

Have you ever wondered what kind of tests naval ships go through? One of them is to survive shock waves.

Money cures a lot of things including the collective psyche of Oregon.

Maybe governments should leave the advertising to the professionals?

Don't care to be in prison? Man is born with free will/choice. Obviously some just can't make the proper decision.


In one instance, at the Ohio State Penitentiary, Siddique Hasan, a well-known prison activist sentenced to death for his role in a 1993 prison uprising, was accused of plotting to "blow up buildings" on September 9. Hasan, an organizer with the Free Ohio Movement, was confined to isolation and denied access to the phone for nearly a month before the strike -- a deliberate effort to prevent him from communicating with the outside about it, supporters said.

For every action there is an equal reaction.

Robots keep entering the work force.


Out of the ordinary economies throughout the world.

Van Goh, mental illness, alcoholic or both? We will probably never know what truly afflicted him.


RIP C. Martin Croker.

Picking up litter along the side of a highway isn't the most fun thing to do. Might as well enjoy yourself and have a little fun while you are at it.

Karma has added a new recipient to her list.

Become a Moron whisperer.

36 That ship testing video reminds me of a section of a book I just read, 'Grunt' by Mary Roach. In a portion where the focus is on prosthetics and surgical rehabilitation for severely injured soldiers, she mentions a threat I'd never heard mentioned previously. Deck slap. When the entire ship moves so suddenly it can transmit a massive kinetic shock to the feet of personnel, severely enough to pulp their heels, for which medical science still has little to offer in the way of treatment. A big target for regenerative medicine.

71 Regarding Manners.
,
Manners have always been a nice veneer over our true selves, the slick and shiny surface that lubricates our social interactions. In the past, that surface veneer was either deeper or slicker, because it extended to interactions where people disagreed with each other.

Now I'd settle for universal common courtesy. Recognise a stranger walking the other way by nodding or smiling, or almost any action other than refusing to make eye contact and acknowledge the existence of another person. I get that in NYC or another megalopolis the goal is to keep the eyes on the prize, which is where you're going, but in suburbia on a walking path it's unacceptable. And becoming common.

I'd like to remind people why we have manners, what conditions brought on the necessity of them, and what happens long terms without them, but true to form the folks that would need that reminder wouldn't listen.

No matter. We'll find out shortly regardless

78 Alton....thanks, but I think you're only the 2nd or 3rd to commit.

Sadly, the idea didn't even stir much conversation or interest, and I think it'd take about twenty "I'm ins", to get ten or a dozen actual participants.

I know the idea works, from various gun-centric blogs n' forums. Likely just a bit too single-purpose focused here, though?

But again, thanks for asking. Maybe it'll come up at a better time for folks?

I want Obama to be asked, "If someone is asked if they are Muslim and they answer no, should they be stabbed?"

He is such a dipshit, he might actually hem and haw before saying "no", because he might think it's a trap to alienate Muslims.

91 There was a story recently about the British ambassador to Saudi Arabia converting to islam.

I'm starting to understand why people would do that.

The Western governments have demonstrated beyond a doubt that they will not protect their citizens from islamic terrorism. They will ignore it, protect islam from criticism, and say we can "absorb" unlimited non-moslem dead. (But every moslem death is an affront, of course.)

So what do you do? You remove yourself from the list of targets by converting to islam.

Sure, you could still be killed by bombs and such. But at least when you leave your house you will not be deliberately targeted by a group of maniacs. They will leave you alone.

It starts to make sense.

And that's exactly where things went off the rails. "Terrorism" is a tactic. "Terror" is an emotion.

Did we declare "war on dive bombers" after Pearl Harbor? How exactly does one wage war against emotions?

My guess is that she won't go bottoms up so much as she will provide a very unpleasant ride for her crew in hard weather.

Poor seakeeping qualities have a multitude of indirect consequences. Tired and injured sailors, sickbay calls, missed watches, bad morale, low re-enlistment.

Those are just the human factors. Add in also damage to topside systems, and structural fatigue to the hull as a whole.

Nota bene: with reference to topside damage, one of the British ships that was badly hit during the Falklands war saw the incoming threat on radar and attempted to pre-emptively engage with Sea Dart. No dice. A tiny microswitch on the launcher had been damaged by heavy seas over the foredeck.

Look at the painting "Impression, Sunrise" by Monet. It's a passing impression of a scene that is hopefully passed to the viewer from an artist in a painting. They were also fighting the old traditions of the church.

Read every word of her chapters on grip, stance, breathing, sights and other technique, and practice EXACTLY like she shows in her excellent photos and illustrations.

141 Shoppers at a local mall were approached by a man. When asked if they were Muslim and answered no they were stabbed. Yes the phrase Allahu Akbar was mentioned.
-------------------

A point here, about that incident. The guy that shot the berserker was an off duty cop, who was carrying.

Now, law varies state-to-state, but in NC LEO's are not granted any authority to carry off of the job, and certainly not concealed carry. Everyone, including cops, must go through the training and background checks to obtain a permit to do so.

So, in NC at least, this fellow would in essence have been an ordinary (albeit with LEO training) concealed-carry civilian. My point being that he didn't stop the guy because he is a cop, he stopped him because he is an armed citizen.

You may be getting too picky about this. I get that a wig that is convincing as real is ideal, but, we're talking *costumes* here! It doesn't have to look real, just good enough to do a Velma impression. In the finished get up, even an obvious costume wig, done Velma style, will go gangbusters, particularly if the rest of it is spot on. If your hair is too long for a Velma-do, it will let the rest of your effort down. Don't underestimate even a cheapo costume wig that looks the part, in putting together a first rate impression. No one is gonna say .... "Great Velma costume! Too bad you're wearing a wig!".

It's a costume!

173 The 28-year-old man suspected of planting bombs in Manhattan and New Jersey over the weekend was previously arrested for stabbing a person in the leg and possession of a firearm in 2014, DailMail.com has learned.

But a grand jury let him walk, despite a warning from the arresting officer that Rahami was likely 'a danger to himself or others.'

Ahmad Khan Rahami, who was arrested on Monday in Linden, N.J., after a manhunt ended in a shootout with police, was also a deadbeat dad who didn't like America and hated gays, according to the mother of his young daughter.

176 Terrorism: The use of violent acts to frighten the people in an area as a way of trying to achieve a political goal.

Just to be clear, there is no requirement that a terrorist has a political goal. I don't know who tried to stuff that "political goal" shit in, but it's total bullshit.

Terrorism is a tactic that has goals (primary or ancillary) of inciting terror in the population, or some part thereof, in addition to harming those who were directly involved in the attack.

It is a standard tactic of war. But what usually happens - with sane societies that have the ability to defend themselves - is that once they start absorbing terrorist attacks they respond in kind, and then some, and make those societies that started the attacks wish that they had never existed, to begin with.

It's never an armed citizen, legally carrying.

that's funny. but did you know that the infamous case of the elderly woman who sued macdonalds because she spilled hot coffee on herself was actually justified?
i've seen pictures of the burns and they were horrific (you can look them up) . the coffee was prepared and kept at some ridiculous temperature, well beyond what was necessary or advisable. the company had received many complaints from injured customers and done nothing. in addition to a monetary award, the company was forced to reduce the temperature of its coffee to a reasonable level.

while the case became the symbol of an overly litigious society, it was, in fact, justified. look up the photos - there were serious burns.

verdict: justified.

Plus, it's fun, and it's self-improvement.

Self defense becomes a benefit with even modest proficiency.

My advise for starters? Don't buy a gun till you've shot about everything they've got for a rental gun, and some "loaners" from other shooters at the range, too.

You'll find other shooters are very generous on letting you test drive a different gun.

249 while the case became the symbol of an overly litigious society, it was, in fact, justified. look up the photos - there were serious burns.

verdict: justified.

Justified, my ass. She opened the cup of coffee IN HER LAP in a moving car. What was she, 85 years old or something. How did she get to be that old when it was clear that she was dumb as a doorknob?

It was her fault, plain and simple. I don't care how hot the coffee was. You don't open the lids of coffee cups in a moving car - or if you do, you don't be a total piece of shit and try to blame anyone else if you spill it all over yourself.

it was friggin hot coffee. It was supposed to be hot. Hot enough to burn. Hot enough that anyone with an ounce of brains (especially some 85 year old ditz) would know to wait until she was sitting at a table to open it.

You need to re-examine the case and think about it. She was 1000% wrong and the verdict and settlement were affronts to society. Seriously.

259 I read a series of lengthy articles several years ago about how the FBI came to the 40 S&W as their round, and it all had to do with "stopping power" as a concept, balanced against recoil as a reality.

Long story short. More than half of perpetrators stop immediately when shot one time.

Some fly backwards, Hollywood-style, even though there's no physical reason to do so. Some take to running and some put their hands up.

Of the percentage of those shot who didn't stop, only a CNS direct hit, or a lack of blood pressure would halt the attack.

I think this cop in MN showed remarkable restraint in shooting the stabber and waiting to see the reaction. It's unfortunate that so many seemingly train to shoot until a perp "catches fire or changes shape".

Confession time, Jim:



I'm almost 50. Have never stepped foot on a firing range. Haven't
fired a handgun in 30 years - since I was a kid out on a farm with
drinking buddies.



But! - I do have my Va concealed application about 10 ft from where I
sit. And there is a ginormous gun shop/range less than 3 miles from the
house. Very respected place from what I'm told.

Their classes are pricier than they should be, but range time/rental (including ammo) seems very reasonable to me.



I'll be there for a session by Thanksgiving if plans go accordingly.

Posted by: Chi at September 19, 2016 11:21 PM (nyNfz)


I finally "pulled the trigger" about a year ago -- inspired by the famous Heinlein quote: "A human being should be able to change a diaper,
plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a
sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying,
take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze
a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal,
fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."

Besides which, among the special snowflakes of the Bay Area, I figured it might probably be a good idea if I knew which end went bang.

I took a basic safety class and one of the guys in it and I were "Monday night at the range" buddies until he moved back to NYC the end of June. We were reasonably safe after the first class....we got reasonably good over time.

Good coffee certainly should be. You can let coffee cool to your tastes but you can't get it to be any hotter than when it comes out.

Thanks to that ditz and others I can't get decently hot coffee, anymore. All because some imbecile opened a cup of coffee in a moving car - an 85 year old (or however old she was).

Tell me, what do you think of 80 year olds opening coffee cups in moving cars? Do you think that's reasonable? So you think it's reasonable to expect you might spill a whole cup all over yourself every so often if you do that?

But ... thanks. I get shit coffee because some old bitty acts like a fool and a bunch of lawyers egg her on to collect from the deepest pockets around. Thanks a lot.

277 The car was parked, not moving. And McD kept their coffee at 200F, which means right below boiling. Far hotter than 160F, which is what coffee is normally kept at. Far hotter than a reasonable person would assume when told the coffee was "hot". And McD tried to claim that the coffee was that temperature because people waiting to drink it when they got to work, when in fact they knew that people were suffering burns to their face and mouth from drinking it on the road.

They sold an unsafe product and failed to give their customers adequate warning.

If you are going to hold to an absolute "caveat emptor" position, then the customer basically assumes all responsibility for what happens to the merchandise after receiving delivery. And I generally agree with the "caveat emptor" position for most commercial exchanges. I guess where the seller ought to assume some responsibility is delivering the merchandise according to the mutually-agreed upon specifications. Did the 85-year-old woman, when ordering coffee, actually think that she was going to get scalding-hot coffee with that risk of serious burns should she spill it? I think the answer to that question is probably no.

I don't mind the "unsafe" bit so much. If a willing buyer and a willing seller want to participate in a transaction involving the exchange of "unsafe" goods, then that's fine with me anyway. It is the lack of adequate warning that is concerning. If both buyer and seller understand the risk, then that is one thing. If they don't, then that is something completely different.

I'd say the jury made the right call, but at a ridiculous dollar amount. Were that exact same case litigated today, I'd be more "sux it, airhead", because, cupholders, duh!

Anyone over 50 remembers the days of yore, when we all drove with all kinds of hot or cold drinks tucked wherever we could find to wedge 'em in as we drove on down the road.

But it wasn't a cupholder issue. The cup didn't spontaneously open. She put it in between her legs and then opened it. Takeout cups are not the strongest around and pretty much everyone knows that putting a takeout cup in between your legs and taking the lid off just ain't the brightest trick in the book. The cup loses a lot of its strength with the lid off. I'm sure we've all encountered that on many occasions, and someone who got to be 79 (my mistake earlier on her age) should have known that. I also wonder if this was the first time she was ever at that McDonalds to get coffee. There seems to be no mention of that in the case synopses I've seen.

In any event, she made a very foolish action and was totally responsible for the consequences. They also said that it was her clothing, particularly, that made it so bad - her sweatpants or whatever.

She should have kept the coffee closed until she got out of the car. Period. 79 years old. I bet she was no athlete. I wonder how shaky her hands (and legs) were, normally.

This case was a total travesty and a mockery.

I don't recall the amount of the McD's coffee judgment, but adjusted backwards in time for inflation, I'd imagine was worth more in real money then, than you might appreciate.

Run the same time and rate adjustment back from Gretchen's $20 mil (which I agree was insane), and the gap would narrow considerably, I'm sure.

359 The McD's coffee case wasn't at all reasonable. They served the coffee at about the recommended serving temperature, the woman's attorney argued it should've been served much cooler, but customers clearly don't want lukewarm coffee and McD's never lowered the temperature after the settlement. Starbucks and most other coffee houses serve at a similar temperature.

The women was severely injured, but she chose to hold the coffee cup between her legs and open it there to add cream which was a very stupid decision on her part. The jury ruled it was 80% McD's fault and only 20% hers. At the very least those numbers should have been reversed.

The initial judgement was obscene. The punitive damages awarded by the jury were $2.7m, 13.5 times the compensatory damages which is downright insane. The judge reduced it to treble damages and it still ended up being far more than the pre-trial settlement offers. The initial settlement offer by the woman's attorney was $20k, but after being refused they then demanded $90k and then $300k before trial. She ended up being awarded $160k + $480K in punitive damages.

The lawsuit was fueled by greed and was accommodated by a very stupid jury.

Well I kinda see TPOP's point here. If you are going to hold to an
absolute "caveat emptor" position, then the customer basically assumes
all responsibility for what happens to the merchandise after receiving
delivery. And I generally agree with the "caveat emptor" position for
most commercial exchanges. I guess where the seller ought to assume some
responsibility is delivering the merchandise according to the
mutually-agreed upon specifications. Did the 85-year-old woman, when
ordering coffee, actually think that she was going to get scalding-hot
coffee with that risk of serious burns should she spill it? I think the
answer to that question is probably no.


Posted by: chemjeff at September 19, 2016 11:44 PM (uAvJJ)


I think TPOP is right -- it is reasonable to expect someone accepting a cup of "hot beverage" to assess the heat of such beverage before applying it to her groin -- and, furthermore, to use due care in withholding it from her groin before such an assessment is complete.


For a contrary case, does anyone remember the little insulated cups that had attached fold-out cardboard handles? If someone said, "I lifted the cup by the fold-out cardboard handles, but the liquid inside was so hot that it melted the glue and the cup fell into my lap" -- I'd throw the book at the coffee supplier.

The difference is due care. It seems like a lot of people are arguing that the amount of burning is what makes McDonald's guilty....but anyone handed a mug of "hot liquid" should treat it as "just shy of boiling" until proven otherwise. And McDonald's probably had a lot of people complain about their "cold coffee" when they ordered a breakfast with coffee, drove down the highway eating breakfast, and found their beverage tepid when they got around to tasting it.

So, this happened today:
I get a call out of nowhere from a MD phone #. Chick claiming to be from Citibank fraud dept. Did I recently request a new credit card?

"Yes, I am in fact Chi. No, I have never applied for, nor do I want anything Citi has to offer. How did you get this #?"

She won't start the process of cancelling this account unless I verify my SSN.And she wants me to give it to her. I politely told her where to put a sideways pineapple, and hung up.
After a little internetting, I find that it was a legit number, so I call Citi.

After a 5 different people telling me they need MY SSN to acess my account (I DON'T HAVE A FUCKING ACCOUNT!), I finally got a guy to help.
It wasn't some local jackals stealing my junk mail from the mailbox. I'm part of a group of thousands of people the have been jacked in the last month.
What idiot steals the identity of a broke, unemployed construction worker? You probably helped my credit score by applying, douchenozzle.

I now have to go file a police report, spend the majority of tomorrow on the phone with the credit reporting agencies, and put a "victim status" notification on my shit. So next time I apply for anything, major hoops to jump through.

Meh. I'm tired of the coffee crap. TPOP, you're just flat out wrong.



So, this happened today:

I get a call out of nowhere from a MD phone #. Chick claiming to be
from Citibank fraud dept. Did I recently request a new credit card?



"Yes, I am in fact Chi. No, I have never applied for, nor do I want anything Citi has to offer. How did you get this #?"



She won't start the process of cancelling this account unless I
verify my SSN.And she wants me to give it to her. I politely told her
where to put a sideways pineapple, and hung up.

After a little internetting, I find that it was a legit number, so I call Citi.



After a 5 different people telling me they need MY SSN to acess my
account (I DON'T HAVE A FUCKING ACCOUNT!), I finally got a guy to help.

It wasn't some local jackals stealing my junk mail from the mailbox.
I'm part of a group of thousands of people the have been jacked in the
last month.

What idiot steals the identity of a broke, unemployed construction
worker? You probably helped my credit score by applying, douchenozzle.



I now have to go file a police report, spend the majority of
tomorrow on the phone with the credit reporting agencies, and put a
"victim status" notification on my shit. So next time I apply for
anything, major hoops to jump through.

The Ira incident got me looking into how careful financial institutions were with my shit -- *spoiler:* Not too fuckin' very. And that's with everyone. It's a wonder we're not so glommed-up in shit we can't function, for all the care "The Powers That Be" exercise.

I should have realized it before -- I had a situation where I drove to Los Angeles to go to Disneyland because I was a cheap bastard....but somehow a guy got hold of my credit card number during my travels because he FLEW round-trip from the Bay Area to Burbank, did four people to Arroyo Seco Racetrack box seats, and paid the electric bill for a home in Emeryville.

And I'm like -- we got his mom's/girlfriend's address in Emeryville, let's go! But the local PD was, "your cc company reversed the charges, so you have not suffered a loss. You have no rights to follow-up."

In a better world, a posse would have torched the Emeryville address with everyone inside, and nothing like this would happen. Instead, right-thinking people just get screwed over-and-over-and-over-and-over.

No. You're both reacting with 2016 sensibilities, here. Back in '92, "cup holders" were only just then breaking into the scope of automobile design and manufacture.

And hell, who here knows that she was driving a '92, anyway? Most the grannies are driving geezermobiles that they've owned for years. Figure ten year old car, an '82, and I don't think the factory designed and built in cupholder then yet existed.

Remember. Back then a "cupholder" used to be a plastic ring with an "L" shaped base on the bottom to hold the cup, and another "U" shaped bit on top to press down into the door/window gap.

We take the lowly cupholder for granted now. Back then, there were furious, raging arguments and debates about 'em in car design studios, factory manufacturing "cost accounting", and the pages of all the automotive press.

Different times folks. Different times.

Posted by: Jean at September 20, 2016 12:41 AM (ngn8T)

A lot of Credit Unions actually farm-out their back-ends to major banks. It used to be that general savings at large banks earned 5% interest, but you earned 6% interest on deposits over $100,000. Credit unions would take deposits from small accounts and pay them 5.5%, but would park the aggregate (over $100,000) at a large bank earning 6%.

Of course, that model isn't as lucrative as it once was -- but the machinery is still there and costs nearly nothing to operate.

423 Did Anna call it a night? I worked on a VW today; not the '73 Super Beetle, but a '68 Deluxe Beetle, which is a rust-free jewel compared to the '73.

I replaced a missing shock absorber on the left rear, and painted the rear trailing arm and accessible chassis parts. The roof, which was in primer, was looking a little rusty, so I scuffed it down with sandpaper in a rubber sanding block, and used a detail sander in some of the tighter spots. Then the windows started getting in the way, so I took out the windshield, back lite, and rear swing-out side windows, and pulled out and trashed the decayed headliner. Cleaned the glass channels with a wire wheel and detail sander, and sprayed them with etching primer from a rattle can. Tomorrow, i will mix up some two-part epoxy primer, and spray the entire roof, window frames, cowl, and front and rear pans. Maybe quarter panels, too.

If the company were at-fault, it should be at-fault if it hurt her a little or a lot. If she mishandled the coffee, it's entirely her problem whether she was slightly inconvenienced or died from it. She was given a cup of "hot beverage" and managed to do a crotch shot of it -- I'd judge differently if she was supposed to have been given a "cold beverage" or if the cup handles failed and it jumped into her lap.

A = 3*(n^2 - 4n + 2) + n
B = (2n + 1)*(n - 6) + n^2 + 3

So, multiplying out and combining,

A = 3n^2 - 11n + 6
B = 3n^2 - 11n - 3

Obviously, then,

A - B = 9

and the answer is

A = B + 9

Well, the shock wasn't missing. I had taken it off to wire-wheel and paint it, and had neglected to reinstall it. Brakes are all done, including hard lines and flex lines. Four new ball joints in the front end. What little rust there was in floor has been welded, and dings in the front and rear aprons fixed, and bumper brackets fixed. I think I ordered headliner and interior stuff for it; will have to check my stock. I have a better pair of doors to put on it, so I am neglecting the doors this go-round.

457 Chi, I can only agree with you in part. Let me ask you a question. Are you going to put a cardboard cup with 180 degree coffee between your legs and take off the top? I'm sorry, but I don't care what your age is, but when does someone take responsibility for their own carelessness? Where is the line drawn? And I take issue with the 3rd degree burn part. The great majority of third degree burns involves charring of the skin. I can see severe second degree burns, but not third.
The biggest part of that is when do individuals take responsibility for THEIR OWN ACTIONS!? They have purchased a product. What that person does with that product after they make the purchase is not the responsibility of the seller. By your line of reasoning, Bushmaster should be responsible for Sandy Hook.

Posted by: Jarvis W. Deplorable at September 20, 2016 01:10 AM (oWXLk)


I will probably use the points. I have never had much problem with them. And if they do go bad, it's usually amenable to a roadside repair. If the Pertronix module fails, you are stuck, unless you had the foresight to tote a set of points and condenser in the glove compartment.


Not like the distributor on a Beetle is hard to reach. On Studebaker V8's, I will do an electronic ignition conversion, because the distributor is at the rear of the block, and the OEM Prestolite distributors were darn poor, anyway.

476 [x^2 + 2x - 8]/[(x+2)*(x-2)] = x/2

multiply through by denominator

[ x^2 + 2x - 8] = (x/2)*[(x+2)*(x-2)]

factor 1st term [THIS IS KEY]

(x + 4)*(x - 2) = (x/2)*(x + 2)*(x - 2)

divide out (x-2) from both sides [THIS IS KEY]

(x + 4) = (x/2)*(x+2)

x + 4 = (1/2)*x^2 + x

subtract x from both sides

4 = (1/2)*x^2

multiply both sides by 2

8 = x^2

x = plus or minus sqrt(

The trick here is to do the factoring, and spot that there's a (x-2) on both sides. Otherwise, you have a nightmarish cubic equation.

You can buy a new 009 style Bosch distributor for under a hundred bucks.


The Prestolite distributors in Studebaker V8's used to wear the mechanical advance weights real bad. Oval out the pivot holes until the weights would scrub the inside of the housing, and strew iron powder around until the points shorted out. Solution is to ream out the holes and press in Oilite bushings made for the weights in the similar Prestolite distributors used in Chrysler products.

Number three was traditionally the first cylinder in a VW engine to suffer from overheating, because it was downstream of the oil cooler, when the oil cooler lived inside the fan housing. But by the advent of the Thing, they moved the oil cooler outside the fan housing, and ducted air to it.


Job #1: set the tappets, cold, and then run it to warm it up, and do a warm compression test.

Arbalest and I attended a master class in making your own cylinder rings by a master machinist last Saturday. The two compression rings were tricky, but the oil ring was "holy-moly!!!!"

You don't need to be completely on top of everything he's doing, but if you just keep track of what's going through his mind as he decides things, you'll learn a lot. Things like the heads expanding more with heat than the block, or the rings needing to be hardened.....but not too hardened.

See, you are absolutely correct - if the buyer and seller are both in agreement over what the product actually is supposed to be. I don't think that is the case here. She ordered "hot coffee", and the implication is, "hot enough but still drinkable", not "hot enough to burn my throat if I drink it". I think that is the essence of the controversy here. IF she really did want scalding hot coffee, and IF she then decided to put that scalding hot coffee in her lap understanding that it might spill and burn her, then yes it is 100% her fault for acting stupidly. But, instead, IF what she really wanted was hot-but-not-scalding-hot coffee, and she assumed that is what she got, then she can't be faulted too much for treating it like a regular cup of coffee and not the boiling mess that she got.

Well-served coffee is too hot to drink when you first get it. It has to cool a bit and usually you have to blow on it a little and take small sips to start. That is GOOD coffee.

Any coffee that you get that you can just chug down the minute you get it won't be any good in 5 minutes, and good coffee is something that you drink slowly (over a cigarette or two, say, at least) and not chugging it down like a coke or glass of water. Coffee is to be enjoyed as much as "drank".

I'm not sure I want to let it run, but he said he did drive it when he bought it. but once it was off the trailer and home, it had no oil.. I saw it leaking straight out of the #1 ex valve, so thats no problem. The other prob was the starter just brinds the flywheel and crunches. So I need to take that out and examine a lil closer..

The engine spun at least 2x fully around, so its not locked up, and it shouldn't be on a bad spot on the flywheel.. Plus the starter has been replaced recently, so, maybe its just crap.

I am a big fan of soft cast-iron piston rings. They seat rapidly, and do not tear hell out of the cylinder walls. Also quite cheap. So when they wear out, hone the cylinder to deglaze it, and pop in another set of cheap cast iron rings. Those chrome rings may last longer, but by the time they go, you are going to need to rebore the block, and buy new pistons, too.

One of the members of our club passed away, and his son (who had a full shop back home himself in another state) was trying to clean things up in his shop. As Arbalest noted to me way back when, there's general-purpose machine tools and automotive machine tools and -- though they superficially work the same -- they tend to be optimized one-way-or-the-other. So I passed-up a large box of engine valve grinder jigs. A LARGE box. I could have been the go-to guy for grinding valve stems for 1950-1980 engines for the
West Coast, for a couple of hundred bucks.

As the world becomes pajama-boy'd, the machines and equipment become increasingly available on the cheap.

515 Here is a sobering article from CNN:

"A TYPICAL AMERICAN TERROROST

Ahmad Khan Rahami is in many ways quite typical of jihadist terrorists in the United States since 9/11.

He is an American citizen, not a foreigner, a refugee or a recent immigrant.

That is overwhelmingly the profile of the approximately 360 jihadist terrorists who have been indicted or convicted in the States since 9/11 of crimes ranging in seriousness from sending small sums of money to an overseas terrorist organization to murder."

516 I'm not sure I want to let it run, but he said he did drive it when he bought it. but once it was off the trailer and home, it had no oil.. I saw it leaking straight out of the #1 ex valve, so thats no problem. The other prob was the starter just brinds the flywheel and crunches. So I need to take that out and examine a lil closer..

The engine spun at least 2x fully around, so its not locked up, and it shouldn't be on a bad spot on the flywheel.. Plus the starter has been replaced recently, so, maybe its just crap.

Posted by: Jarvis W. Deplorable at September 20, 2016 01:45 AM (oWXLk)


Might be the drive-end bushing for the starter. I think that is pressed into a bored hole in the transmission casting, and used to be a "must-do" item on every engine change, since it cost a buck or two. I think at some point, VW went to a starter with an integral drive-end housing and bushing.


Anyway, I am getting tired. I have a cold, and it is dragging me down a little. See you all tomorrow.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at September 20, 2016 01:51 AM (Bvr/A)

517 On my Baja, I used to be able to pull the engine in less than 10 mins.. if it was a minor repair, have it in in 20 total!

But, yeah, it all depends on what the owner wants to do.. If we can't work with this engine, I'm going to suggest we get a built 1776 or 1883, with a pair of webbers.

If his engine is shot, he may just fix the leaking tube, and sell it to Ca for 2x what he bought it for and shipping lol

You don't need to be completely on top of everything he's doing, but if
you just keep track of what's going through his mind as he decides
things, you'll learn a lot. Things like the heads expanding more with
heat than the block, or the rings needing to be hardened.....but not too
hardened.



Posted by: deplorable cthulhu at September 20, 2016 01:37 AM (EzgxV)





I am a big fan of soft cast-iron piston rings. They seat rapidly,
and do not tear hell out of the cylinder walls. Also quite cheap. So
when they wear out, hone the cylinder to deglaze it, and pop in another
set of cheap cast iron rings. Those chrome rings may last longer, but by
the time they go, you are going to need to rebore the block, and buy
new pistons, too.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at September 20, 2016 01:46 AM (Bvr/A)


This master machinist also likes cast iron, heats 'em to about 1200 then drops 'em in water to semi-harden them. He well understands the heat to 1500 and drop in oil method and, for that matter, has done cast-iron castings on his driveway. He likes his rings his way.

527 Yeah, but on a bug, instead of reboring the cylinders, just replace them. It's a pancake engine and it just comes apart. Crap, just find a big guy, drop the motor on his chest and lift the body off over him. Then get a couple guys to lift the motor off his chest, unless he's Arnold f'n Schwarzenegger and then he can press it a couple of times for fun.

Posted by: Deplorable Old Blue at September 20, 2016 01:51 AM (9iR5/)


Yeah, on a Beetle, a barrel set is the way to go. Although if you have it torn down for some other reason, and the pistons and barrels are real good a simple re-ring would gain you back the lost compression for less $$$. Sort of depends on how much value you place upon your time, and what sort of service you expect from the car.


But normally a high-miler Beetle engine will need new main and rod bearings, and might need the case align-bored for oversize (on the O.D.) bearings. If you can pass your finger over a bearing saddle in the case, and feel the ridge where the oil groove was, it needs to be bored.

542 Mornin'. Insomnia again.

I used to have a 1993 Toyota 4x4 which I loved, but it had the stupidest cup holder arrangement I've ever seen.

The double cup holder was positioned directly in front of a double air vent in the middle of the console, up above the radio. And the holder was rickety, so putting it up way too high like that guaranteed drips all down the front of the radio and center console controls.

But that's not the stupid part. By placing the cup holders directly in front of the air vents, they guaranteed you couldn't put a hot drink in there in the summer or a cold drink in there in the winter. Your cold soda wasn't going to stay cold long with a heater blowing on it from an inch away, and vice versa for hot drinks with the A/C blowing on them from an inch away.

Drove me nuts for 10 long years. Did love that truck otherwise though.

Posted by: ThunderB at September 20, 2016 02:10 AM (Ev+gl)

I read her article, and it's not clear that they are "all jihadi". Her two main pieces of evidence are:
1. that *someone else* (not a family member) posted a death threat against Pamela Geller on his brother's Facebook page, and
2. that he was arrested in 2014 for stabbing his sister, but he was released when his sister declined to press charges. Geller says that it is "in accordance with the sharia" that she didn't press charges, but that contention hasn't been shown.

Maybe there is some evidence that they are "all jihadi" but I don't think her evidence is all that watertight in proving the case.

Yep. There was the case of the Philly lady (with a LTC) who forgot that she had her gun with her as she went over the bridge into Jersey. She was pulled over for speeding, or something like that, and told the cop that she had the gun, which led to a near ruining of her life as Jersey refused to stand down on prosecuting her to the full extent. It went on for a while. I'm not sure how it eventually got resolved but she went through a ton of shit for something like a year, at least.

We have no obligation to let anyone in -- not a single soul. If 5% of a group are laced with poison, our government has a positive responsibility to exclude 100% of that group until they have an effective screening system to exclude the poisoned. It's just that simple.

621 Here's the start of that story (it's on the foxnews website - I can't be bothered with tinyurl):

Philadelphia mother whose legal gun got her arrested in NJ hopes for leniency

A young Philadelphia mother, hit with gun charges in New Jersey after being caught during a traffic stop with the firearm she carries legally in her home state, is hoping for leniency from the judge in the case, she tells FoxNews.com.

Shaneen Allen, 27, who is facing three years in prison, said Thursday she remains "very much worried" about her future and her two sons, Niaire, 10, and Sincere, 3, since being charged with unlawful possession of a weapon - a .380 Bersa Thunder handgun - and possession of hollow-point bullets after making an unsafe lane change in New Jersey's Atlantic County on Oct. 1.

....



Allen reiterated that she immediately told the officer she had a gun in her 2007 Chevrolet sedan, as well as a concealed carry permit for neighboring Pennsylvania.

"The officer knew there was a gun there, she was completely honest and open," her attorney, Evan Nappen, said. "There are no aggravating factors in this case; she's a single mom of two, working in the medical field who was robbed twice and that's what inspired her to get a gun license in the first place."

Nappen said potential jurors could invoke jury nullification, a constitutional doctrine allowing juries to acquit defendants who are technically guilty, but don't deserve to be punished. It can apply in all states, but attorneys are generally not permitted to introduce the concept to jurors.

624 It's not just Islam (although that alone is bad enough) but the current teachings from ISIS are that these are the end times and the time is now to kill all the kafirs, that this must be done in order to bring about the day of judgement. Also, if you have not been a good Muslim all your life, you can be redeemed by killing the infidel, the more the merrier, as it were.
So, it's actually much worse now than in the past.

Turtles are little chocolate covered clusters of caramel & nuts.

The only candybar worth buying is a Payday. Salty, sweet and nutty - just like a good woman.

I'm not allergic. I've never been allergic to anything. I just never liked most nuts. I kind of like peanuts, but it would be rare for me to go out of my way for peanuts, though certain candy bars, like the aforementioned Payday, and snickers and the like are pretty stupendous. But I just could never stand the taste of pecans or walnuts and a bunch of other nuts. I could eat them if I had to (if I was at someone's house for dinner and couldn't turn away some dish) but I just don't like them.

704 Urgh can't sleep.

Just saw the jelly bean analogy. Yes buzzion did raise it before.

Okay here is my comment on the jelly bean analogy. And I don't care if you respond to it or not, ignore it or not, whatever. That's fine. I'm going to go (or try to go) back to bed after this.


So, in this analogy, the jelly beans are supposed to represent Muslims, and the poisoned jelly beans are supposed to represent the Muslim jihadists, I presume. Obviously, if the analogy were as simple as that, if the bowl was contaminated with some poisoned jelly beans, no you wouldn't let any of them in. Out of caution. That is the answer you want me to come up with, right?


But, let's deconstruct this analogy a little bit. Human beings really aren't jelly beans, and human beings, unlike jelly beans, have the capacity to lie and disguise their true identities. So a more accurate analogy is that you have a bowl full of *what appears to be* jelly beans and skittles. You know that some of the jelly beans are poisoned, but you don't know about the skittles. Could they be poisoned jelly beans in disguise? What do you do?


So one potential option would be to not let any of the candies in, jelly beans *or* skittles. But if the jelly beans can disguise themselves as skittles, why can't they disguise themselves as some other type of candy? Does this mean all of the candies have to be kept out? If the operating principle for deciding which candies get in or out is an *absolute certainty* that there are no poisoned candies in the bowl at all, then the answer must be yes. If you know that there is at least one poisoned candy in the bowl, you have to keep them all out.


Is this the solution that you desire?

Posted by: chemjeff at September 20, 2016 05:03 AM (uAvJJ)

705 Chemjeff I don't want to die because some asshole let some poisoned candy in because he didn't want to make the other candy feel bad. And the other candy helps disguise the poison candy by letting the poison candy hide in its midst

721 muslims are not candy. Candy is something good and sweet; something that you want, something that you enjoy. muzzies are nothing of the sort. They are useless, at best, and serve only to destabilize and primitivize any society unlucky enough to be burdened with more than a handful of them.

muslims have 57 muslim nations in the world to go infest. They have no reason to come here and we have no need and no desire for them to come. One of America's great advantages over the years is that we were blessed with about ZERO muslims since the inception of our nation.

The best that any nation filled with muzzies has ever achieved is Turkey, and that country only managed to exist with some semblance of individual liberty because the supreme power was ultimately kept with the secular military. Turkey stands as the pinnacle of muzzie social advance ... and Turkey, compared to Western societies, is a joke.

islam is a sick, violent, belligerent political ideology that is based on taking over all state power in the world. That is the sole purpose of islam. It ain't no jelly beans and we have no need for any of them, here. Forget vetting. This isn't about vetting. This is about our society and it cannot exist in any reasonable form with even a middling single digit percentage of muzzies. That is the clear lesson of history - for the last 1400 years and even further for the arabs.

778 Mornin' Horde-- A few things about parenting, manners, etc. My second try at parenting--and I'm better at it. It is ABSOLUTELY essential to teach your child GOOD manners and good BEHAVIOR. Set standards early in their lives and ADHERE to them. My own is now 11. A joy to be around. We go to a timeshare every 2 years. I bought it when the child was 2 (our first trip) Everyone there always remembers the child. Foster a love of reading. The child told me several years ago that one the friends was saying how they had at 8 books of their own at home. My child said nothing until asked--"so how many do YOU have?". The answer-- "oh--well uhh about 50 I guess". The child --Bi-lingual English/Spanish will sit watching TV and translate shows for grandparents. I only have ask ONCE for anything to be done. I have NEVER had to apply physical discipline. Why?early and THOROUGH training applied with all the love I could- The payoff-- I have a child to be proud of. A child that is polite, considerate of others, loves to read, and LOVES the out doors and nature. I am blessed--but it all began many years ago ---

Well, if he's on a college campus with hundreds of 18-21 yr old grls, why would he want the supply of vulnerable grls reduced? IMO, he has some serious obsessive compulsive disorder issues which probably turn off American grls, so he has to key on the less knowledgeable from who knows where.

Whose opinion does he think he's going to change? I try to ignore him. Wish everyone would.

793 @788 just got into a terse discussion online with a long time lefty friend about that meme that says all 5 living presidents have warned to not to vote for Trump. I snoped that and put it on the post that stated that the meme is inaccurrate. Then my lefty friend got snippy and posted Hillary screen shots about military generals endorsing Trump and that a Kennedy "said" that GHWB will vote for Hillary...Then the friend said she would of liked Jeb. I said it figures because he would have been getting whipped because of the name "Bush" and it would have benefited Hillary, then the friend got affronted and told me not to tell her how to think...sheesh...

I did watch the final half of the game. 23 year old rookie quarterback is pretty damn amazing. I'd rather not punish the white players, like this quarterback, because of the actions of a couple of misinformed African-Americans.

I did note the advertisers. Nobody I will be purchasing anything from in the future.

Tell me one thing that this politicized Press is not capable of doing.
Including faking poll numbers.

They add words to quotes.
They remove words from quotes.

They attribute the actions of one candidate to the other candidate.
They refuse to be intellectually inquisitive concerning events in the past, and in the present.
They donate money almost exclusively to one political party.



They are the unpaid volunteers of the democratic political machine.


So to lie about poll results?
