Sunday Night Overnight Open Thread (10/23/16)[Mis. Hum.]

Taken from the history books 54 years and 1 day ago.


October 22, 1962 President John F. Kennedy imposes naval blockade on Cuba. The Cuban missile crisis officially commences.

What is known as the Cuban Missile Crisis actually began on October 15, 1962--the day that U.S. intelligence personnel analyzing U-2 spy plane data discovered that the Soviets were building medium-range missile sites in Cuba. The next day, President Kennedy secretly convened an emergency meeting of his senior military, political, and diplomatic advisers to discuss the ominous development. The group became known as ExCom, short for Executive Committee. After rejecting a surgical air strike against the missile sites, ExCom decided on a naval quarantine and a demand that the bases be dismantled and missiles removed. On the night of October 22, Kennedy went on national television to announce his decision. During the next six days, the crisis escalated to a breaking point as the world tottered on the brink of nuclear war between the two superpowers.

Cuba remains a Communist country. The USA has had several presidents since Kennedy. Cuba is still controlled by the Castro iron fist.


And our current president is now playing footsie with the Commies.


His legacy after all is more important than "freedom" for the Cubans.


Filed under news, culture and science. STD's on the rise.


"Last year was the first year that we saw increases but those increases are actually continuing and at a higher rate," Mermin said.

The new numbers translate to a 19 percent increase in syphilis cases, a 13 percent rise in gonorrhea and a 6 percent increase in chlamydia, Mermin said.


Will solar panels be a thing of the past? Optical "rectenna" converts light directly to electricity.

Based on multiwall carbon nanotubes and tiny rectifiers fabricated onto them, the optical rectennas could provide a new technology for photodetectors that would operate without the need for cooling, energy harvesters that would convert waste heat to electricity - and ultimately for a new way to efficiently capture solar energy.

In the new devices, developed by engineers at the Georgia Institute of Technology, the carbon nanotubes act as antennas to capture light from the sun or other sources. As the waves of light hit the nanotube antennas, they create an oscillating charge that moves through rectifier devices attached to them. The rectifiers switch on and off at record high petahertz speeds, creating a small direct current.


An unlikey scenairo, former Greenpeace leader at odds with tree huggers regarding fracking. Wouldn't it be fun to watch all of these leftist loons live without electricity, natural gas, diesel and gasoline for a month? Instead of expending their energy to attack our lifestyles they need to get into the labs. With all of their energy and knowledge they are sure to come up with something better, amirite?


Did you get your Mother-in-Law a card, gift, bouquet? Today has been National Mother in Law Day. Ooops.


A National Awareness week in honor of our President starts today. Rodent Awareness Week - October 23-29, 2016.

The Indonesian Mountain Weasel


The growing cancer here and around the world. Power tends to corrupt. And, absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.

Even just thirty years ago nobody seriously believed the government would monitor all our phonecalls and drag people off to prison. Nobody seriously believed that you could be arrested for how the dust blew off your property when you plowed a field or where you smoked. Nobody believed you could be fined or jailed for who you baked a cake for or didn't. And already by that time the federal government was far too vast.


Speaking of power. Obscure laws of the road from our friends to the north.


Mario theme performed with trumpet and handgun. Make, model and caliber open for discussion.


How many of you were outfitted for your first hunting adventure at an Army/Navy Surplus store? I was. I still enjoy going to this type of Man's Mall. The rise and fall of the Army surplus store.

Two big factors are contributing to the decline of true military surplus products in the marketplace: the changing nature of war in the late 20th century and online shopping


Sports car? Hot trophy spouse? Sky diving? Are you having a midlife crisis? Midlife crisis, fact or fiction?

In 2000, Wethington conducted a phone survey of 724 people between the ages of 28 and 78. More than a quarter said they had experienced a midlife crisis, a term they were free to define for themselves. The average age of crisis was 46. Some said their crisis was because they realized time was slipping away from them. Others blamed it on a divorce. Others said it was prompted by losing a job.
"Most boiled down to 'something happened that made me re-evaluate my life,' " Wethington says. "That's a pretty minimal definition." She considers herself in the camp of sociologists who believe the midlife crisis is a myth


The war on drugs? Genius Award Winner, the maker of drug testing equipment.


Not all young people are jerks. Is there hope for our country? Time will tell.Feel good

ALH in the prior thread was looking for something uplifting. Here's what I told my son earlier re: the strangeness that is this year:

1) Cleveland wins first championship in 50 years.

2) Cubs in World Series for first time in 70 years

3) Cubs/Indians matchup is I think between the two teams with the longest World Series droughts

Ergo:
4) Trump is gonna win

Army/Navy surplus store? I think they're all out of business around here.

But i am still wearing/using the stuff I pulled out of a dumpster behind a tactical shop 4 years ago - almpst all brand spanking new.
Bates boots, 5 or six pair of BDU pants, long johns (silks?), socks, a rain cover, a couple digi-cam shirts, one pair of Navy surf camo pants...

Plus a few gently worn t-shirts, half dozen gun cleaning kits, canteens complete with the metal cooking tin, what else...?

I should go back by that place some day soon - they have double in size since then.

37 I'm sorry that I didn't know today was Mother-in-law Day. Mine is a peach.

Even though she and my FIL are strict Catholics, they were very kind to me when I moved down here to live with Mr. Deplorable (divorce wasn't final, so we couldn't marry yet). Over the years, she said, she came to love me because I made her son so happy (also, because I was a conservative). After he died, she called me almost every evening to talk a little and tighten our bond.

We've grown closer than we would have, probably, since he is no longer here. She says that she feels closer to him through me, and I feel the same. She'll be 88 in a few months. I expect to stay here in northern VA until she passes - afterwards, I don't think I'll be hanging around anymore.

55 Miley,

She sounds like a great woman.

When my wife left (the first time), my MIL was one of the rocks I leaned on. I had the two kids to raise and I was working the morning show at the local radio station, and had to leave in the wee hours. She made sure the kids got to school and made us dinner 2-3 times a week so I wouldn't have to cook, and gave me encouragement to go on. She passed on before my wife finally left for good, but I know she'd be proud of her grandkids if she were here.

61 Funny, it was just about a week ago that I realized the old Army/Navy surplus store here, which had been around forever, was gone.

I remember getting an olive drab Army shirt there. For some reason, it was considered cool to wear with jeans when I was in hs.

Also picked up a West German army shirt there with a Deutschland flag on the sleeve. It was a little snug - made me wonder if the German Army had either women or very small men serving in their army. For some reason, guys really liked me in that shirt. I always got compliments when I wore it. It often turned out that they had been stationed in West Germany so, I dunno, maybe that was a good memory for them.

Cop story from WZ:

The political organization of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, an influential Democrat with longstanding ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, gave nearly $500,000 to the election campaign of the wife of an official at the Federal Bureau of Investigation who later helped oversee the investigation into Mrs. Clinton's email use.

Campaign finance records show Mr. McAuliffe's political-action committee donated $467,500 to the 2015 state Senate campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, who is married to Andrew McCabe, now the deputy director of the FBI.

74 Mother-in-law's day?
Didn't know there was such a thing.
I wish I knew...

Never married, but came close a few years back. I call her Mom MIL to this day. I won't say what I call "her" (meaning the ex).
Haven't talked to anyone in the family except her in 3 years or so - she still stops by to visit, and I was over there last weekend fixing an electrical demon after the hurricane.

Everyone else in the family are dicks - including my ex and all her siblings, who would rather do drugs than bring their kids around. Hasnt seen or talked to the grandkids in well over a year. Sad. Good woman. Kind and funny.

I always thought that in general, People are dicks. After almost four years raising the ex's kids, that feeling was reinforced tenfold.

164 His legacy after all is more important than "freedom" for the Cubans.
----------------------------------------------
Not sure how Obama's legacy or lack thereof would have any relationship to freedom for Cubans one way or the other - unless we were to invade the island and teach them to elect the right people.

We broke diplomatic relations, launched a non-covert covert invasion, "quarantined" the island, embargoed the island since 1962, engaged in covert sabotage missions for a decade, had Al Haig make Cuba a "priority", Soviet aid ceased, and so on. Nothing had much affect on freedom for Cubans. Yet worried that Obama is pursuing a legacy versus freedom for Cubans?

Presumably the two million Cubans in the United States have freedom so that is a success of some sort. Or does even their freedom here hang in the balance with the upcoming election?

That Cuba is independent is our failure. Cuban freedom is their own responsibility.

Many years ago I was called out to a fleabag hotel for a suspicious death. Looked like a simple OD, in keeping with the ambiance of the hotel, except his body was in a various suspicious position. We were all standing around trying to think what to do when the answer walked in the door. The deceased had the bad manners to die laying on his TV cord so his good buddy had to move the body to take the TV.

Haven't talked to anyone in the family except her in 3 years or so - she still stops by to visit, and I was over there last weekend fixing an electrical demon after the hurricane.

Everyone else in the family are dicks - including my ex and all her siblings, who would rather do drugs than bring their kids around. Hasnt seen or talked to the grandkids in well over a year. Sad. Good woman. Kind and funny.
I always thought that in general, People are dicks. After almost four years raising the ex's kids, that feeling was reinforced tenfold.

234 There is a fairly nice little Mil-surp store in Clyde, about 40 minutes from Asheville, called Old Grouch's Military Surplus, that still sells mostly genuine surplus products, as far as I can tell. I've bought about half a dozen nice little ex-IDF wool blankets from them at a very nice price over the last year and a half or so, plus a three or four ammo cans in which to store ammo (what else?). Their website is never updated, but if you are in Western NC and looking for military surplus I recommend them.

Dad taught me how to drive the pickup when I was 8. We routinely drove between Anchorage and Kenai, and back then, there were very few service stations let alone people along that route. He figured that if something happened, I would have to be able to get us moving again, particularly in the winter.

1959 Ford 100 pickup, baby blue, with manual on the floor and just putting it in gear was like reaching across the universe, but I did it with a phone book under me and one behind me.

Somebody from back in the day posted a photo down our street on Facebook the other day, and there was that pickup. He said that every kid in the neighborhood wanted that truck in the '70's. It was really something.

Yeah that's nice. Meanwhile I'm a conservative voting for Trump. Is it not OK to wonder what the fuck is happening in Texas? What I'm reporting is anecdotal, obviously. Just because you do not see any signs for anyone, which I find hard to believe (you seriously see no signs anywhere?), I see signs every damn day. Not as many as in 2012 and I think there are Trump supporters who don't have signs/bumper stickers because they don't want to put up with the leftist trash that removes them or keys their cars. But I do not remember this many (D) signs around where I am. Ever. What does this mean? I have no clue. Maybe it's one leftist dickweed planting 10,000 signs and there's no worry.

All I know is that Texas is not a presidential red state according to RCP and I'm not seeing as many Trump signs as Clinton signs.

Feel free to call bullshit on RCP, but I don't comment here to troll.

357 An excellent comment at the UK Independent's website on an "article" trying to link Trump and his supporters to the Nazis because they're calling the lying media "the lying press" in German. [Paragraph breaks inserted by myself. I've redacted the woman's name.]

Trump from a woman's point of view Here's some food for thought . . . Trump, from one woman's point of view:
Someone asked me today how, being a woman, I could stand up for Trump, a misogynist, a racist and a bigot.

Here is my answer:
Because I use my head to research and find out what candidates really are, not what the media wants me to think.

Because DT has more women in executive and managerial positions than any comparable company, which tells me he is not a misogynist.

Because he pays these women the same or more than their male counterparts, which tells me he looks for capacity and skills in people, not color, gender or race.

Because he fought the West Palm Beach City to be able to open his newly purchased club, so he could include blacks and Jews as members, who had been banned until then. This tells me he is not a racist.

Because he has raised wonderful children who have turned out to be outstanding, hard working and compassionate adults. He must be doing something right. Because his economic plans makes sense, are conservative in nature, and I vote based of what is best for my family, my friends and my country.

Because everybody, the left and the right are afraid of him, the media is trying to destroy his image, and even foreign governments are voicing their opinion, so he must be doing something right. Clean house maybe?

Because I want a Supreme Court who will uphold the constitution, and not behave as minions of the administration. I have had enough with judges who are more like political activists than law enforcers. I do not want the same fate for the SCOTUS. Because I fear for my family's safety if the current trend of not confronting blatant terrorism continues which is a threat to our way of life.

Because I am fed up with the rampant corruption of this administration. Accountability in government is paramount, and as this administration has demonstrated, it is a foreign concept to them.

Because I am fed up with political correctness gone wild, and because Trump is not afraid to say what everybody thinks but does not dare to say. A thug is a thug, regardless of color, and that's it.

Because it is about time someone puts America's interests ahead of other countries. Because I know Trump recognizes and embraces America's exceptionalism, and will not tour the world apologizing for who we are. That tells me he is a patriot.

Because, unlike Hillary, he has actually held a job, worked hard and achieved success.

And last, but not least, because I am more offended by what Hillary does than by what Trump says.

My response would be: "Because I am more than my boobs and my uterus. The same issues that affect men affect me.

And despite how anti-woman the left wants you to believe the right is. If it's not Trump, it's Romney's binder full of women. If it's not Romney, it's McCain trying to keep Sarah Palin down. Despite how anti-woman the left believes the right is...I don't base my entire platform on one single issue of whether or not I bear a child and how much I can have sex without risking pregnancy. Sorry, libs, You are the misogynists here, you are the people who think women should boil everything down to one single thing..."

Great. So this isn't really a mutually beneficial deal. Obama is just using this as an excuse to send more of our money overseas, something he seems to like to do.

With the "Automatic Stickshift" that VW enthusiasts affectionately call The Fireball.
My BIL's Beetle caught fire while he was in the movies with my Sis, and burned up 3 cars.
Luckily, the two times mine spontaneously combusted, I was in it or beside it, and saved the car.
I quickly switched it out for a Manny with aftermarket hydraulic clutch (and a new crate motel + dual Mikuni 34mm carbs & a Monza exhaust).

397 When I learned to drive, there was a knob that controlled the 2-speed rear end.
Many a time over the years, I have wished for another to come into my life.

For the longest time, "automatic" chokes were so unreliable that conversion kits back to a Bowden cable and knob were popular. The heat-reactive bimetal spring was foolproof, but the metal ducting that ran heat to it ("the stove") was hit or miss, and the linkage into the carb for some reason needed choke cleaner, a lot. And part of the housing was Bakelite, and would eventually go the way of all Bakelite.

I have a Carter AFB that has a perfectly functioning old-school automatic choke, no electric actuator or sensors. But it lives inside a pressure box, so is never exposed to dust or any fumes other than gasoline.

You're kidding me! I had one of those, too, and I thought it was the only one, ever. The four-speed box really made the most of that little six, too.

Yeah, they have MRE's, and Mountain House freeze-dried meals, and other bulk freeze-dried stuff. I bought a few of the MRE's, and they are, well, meh. About on a par with Chef Boyardee canned pastas. But not as cheap. If portability is paramount, go with the MRE's. For your stay-at-home stash, canned goods are better. YMMV

417 In respect to the subject of hitting on people, I will share this story. I was at a church service today in the afternoon, in addition to another one in the morning. It was a homecoming which they've had at this tlittle stone church in the country for about a zillion years. A number of the members and visitors were older men and a number were African American. In the African American church, i find, both the woman and the men dress up more than I've seen in your normal Anglo congregation. I wasn't there doing anything officially just enjoying the great music and the preaching because the young lady I officiate at communion for is their pastor. Anyway, i was sitting in front of a guy who must have been in his 70s and had a-very nice suit and a great tie. After the service I said, "I really like your tie. It's nice to see men dress up wearing ties and he shared a story about how his grandfather used to be a barber and the grandson was learning the trade, but 55 years he didn't want to wear the Nehru jacket that babers wore and his grandfather said. "If you don't wear the jacket you must always wear a suit and tie," and I don't think he stayed as a barber but he's been wearing suits and ties ever since . I went home and told my husband, "I wonder if this man thought that I was flirting with him" because "I like your tie" sounds like one of the few sedate flirting lines a woman could use in the church/ My husband laughed. I really did like his tie though. :^) I also told a African American guy who was also nicely dressed and about in his eighties that he looked very nice. He was wearing a suit and a tie and a hat in church.

I liked having a control knob for the gear change! Get it? It was a dirty joke when I wrote it, so you're gonna have to get really dirty to dirty it up any more...

AOP, I never saw that set-up on any other vehicle. I had to rebuild the gearbox once ($50! seemed like a lot), but the shift linkage never gave any problems.

Hand signals in Britain were...different. You know how we signal a turn to the "other" side with a crook of the arm? In Blighty, you just point with your arm -- inside the car!

CaliGirl, I have several engines I don't use all that often, and I've become a believer in battery maintainers. They're a trickle charger, but they will shut off when the battery is all the way up, and also give a quick jolt on some predertermined schedule, to prevent buildup on the battery plates.

First one I got was close to fifty bucks, but just got a couple on sale for 17 each.
They seem to make implement batteries, at least, last much longer. And if you have any kind of alarm or security system, you DO NOT want a battery to go flat dead.

I did buy a '88 Mazda 2600 truck in '92, and loved it, but I rolled that thing four or five times one night.

Many of y'all remember stomping with the left foot on the floor switch for bright/dim lights? It's push/pull on a steering wheel shaft now, and sometimes when I try to dim the lights, I'll turn the knob and the lights go off. Always fun on a dark road at night.

Never had to rebuild the Dagenham box, but the van initially came to me as a freebie, but it had Arizona plates and not been legally imported to Canada. Also the struts holding the engine up had rusted away, and the engine was sitting on the front axle.

I obtained an ex-Army van body in Chilliwack, BC, which had held the 300 CI six. Ordered a crossmember to mount the little six in that van body, which was an all-doors body. It was over $100 in 1970's dollars, and had to come from Detroit. But I got a lot of miles out of that old thing.

454 An odd lesson I learned is some automatic transmissions can be bump started if you get them to about 20MPH. It worked the one time on a 1960s suburban anyways. Never tried it on anything else.

Posted by: Willy J. at October 24, 2016 12:21 AM (Ha50C)

Up until the late '60's, many automatic transmissions had a rear hydraulic pump, driven by the driveshaft, so they could be bump-started. They were removed as an economy measure. I don't know of any automatic made now that can be bump-started.

Will solar panels be a thing of the past? Optical "rectenna" converts light directly to electricity.

Based on multiwall carbon nanotubes and tiny rectifiers fabricated onto them, the optical rectennas could provide a new technology for photodetectors that would operate without the need for cooling, energy harvesters that would convert waste heat to electricity - and ultimately for a new way to efficiently capture solar energy.
In the new devices, developed by engineers at the Georgia Institute of Technology, the carbon nanotubes act as antennas to capture light from the sun or other sources. As the waves of light hit the nanotube antennas, they create an oscillating charge that moves through rectifier devices attached to them. The rectifiers switch on and off at record high petahertz speeds, creating a small direct current.


I think you mis-grokked that article. It's not as if this new technology will make the concept of solar panels obsolete -- it's just that they may eventually be able to make solar panels much more efficient by using a completely different physics principle than the one used in current solar panels.

Al solar cells made thus far in history are based on Einstein's "photoelectric effect" principle, which actually may have been his most useful scientific breakthrough of all, despite being little-known by the public. He calculated that a single photon could under certain circumstances strike a mass and thereby "liberate" a single electron. People realized that if this was done en masse, the photons could liberate so many electrons as to create an electrical current. So the principle behind "solar cells" was born -- creating materials that match Einstein's criteria for electron-liberation, stickin' 'em in the sunlight and attaching a wire to channel away all those free electrons -- i.e electricity from the sun!

All that's happened on this front for the last 100 years is endless incremental improvements in efficiency. But always based on the same principle.

Until...now, apparently, if that article is true.

These new devices convert "light" into "electricity" using a completely different mechanism -- which frankly I don't understand, but seems to involve not individual photos (the "particle theory of light") but rather incoming radiation frequencies (the "wave theory of light"). Electrons get freed by light, just as with the photoelectric effect, but in this instance they are freed via something something nanotubes something diode something frequency.

The latter part of the article concedes that they're still in the early stages of this concept, and it's not yet anywhere near being efficient enough to compete with photoelectric panels, but that in theory this new principle could be used to create solar panels with much better efficiency (i.e. the ability to squeeze as much electricity as possible out of a given amount of light).

So that, to finally make my point: This new invention won't make "solar panels a thing of the past," but rather will be a new and improved type of solar panel. So it could make them a thing of the future.

473 And, BTW ... I'm sure someone must have mentioned it earlier, but the Cuban Missile Crisis was Kennedy's fault. It only happened because he was such a spastic pussy that the Soviets thought they had an opportunity. And, in the end, they won. They got the missiles taken out of Turkey.

Kennedy was a total loser President. The only thing that saved his "legacy" was that his Presidency was cut short to two years and he couldn't make it too apparent to everyone that he was an imbecile, a criminal, and a coward, to boot.

Nice touch of him to put his brother in the AG spot, though. Pretty nifty ...

478 I watched the end of that Seattle -Cardinals crapshow. I turned to it, right before the local news, and it ran on forever. I couldn't take my eyes off of it, sort of like a train wreck.

There at the last, when Seattle was going to try for the game winning field goal, I said if they miss this, this game is under a curse. And he missed it. I think that's the first NFL tie I've ever seen.

In regular season, they play one modified sudden-death, not-so-sudden death overtime. If there is no winner after one 15 minute overtime, it's a tie, Jim. You can't win on a field goal (or safety) on the initial possession, only a touchdown. The other team gets at least one possession. After that, first to score (again) wins.

And that's what happened here. Both scored a field goal on each possession, re-tying the game.

In the playoffs, they'll keep playing 15 minute OT periods until someone wins.

simply amazed me since I'd never witnessed such a thing before. I could
feel his presence around me, and then sort of pouring into me. I felt a
tingling, and then such a rush of joy that I couldn't have been sad at
that moment, no way.

He imparted something to me that I'll save
for another time. The point being, there is something after death, and
it's wonderful. I wanted to share that with both you and Carl. He is on
the verge of something wonderful and he should not be afraid.

Sort of like the way they teach about FDR ... all talk about how he was President for so many years and this and that ... but never mention that his real legacy (and point in history) was that he was the only individual that we have ever had a Constitutional Amendment specifically written for - to disallow anyone else from ever doing what he did again.

Light is just a form of electromagnetic radiation. This "rectenna" simply consists of tiny structures that resonate with the electrical vector of incident light, and convert that petaHertz AC current into DC.

The "rectenna" idea is not new; it is the proposed form for receivers if solar power satellites get put into orbit, to beam down power as microwaves.

You can quite easily build a "free-power radio" based upon the same general principle. Two radios in one box. One of which is tuned to a strong local station, and feeds into a rectifier, to make a low voltage DC current, which then powers germanium transistor in the other radio, which can tunes stations in the normal way. It would surprise me if there were not a Youtube instructional for it.

The continuing big drawback to using solar panels for large-scale power generation is that solar energy is pretty diffuse, and you need a huge area of solar panels to make commercial-scale electricity. And that whole "dark-at-night" thing throws a wrench in, too.

I have a story that freaked me out.

One day, a good 5 years after Dad passed,, I was thinking of him and felling particularly down. I looked over at the car next to me at the stoplight - it was Larry! (Dad)! In his old Maxima.
I sat there staring. Horns honking behind us, he sat there looking back, not moving. Finally, he just smiled his crooked grin, did his usual wink, and turned off, while I sat there stunned. It. Was. Him. No doubt.

It still haunts me to this day, and I don't believe in that kind of shit.

531 So today I went and fetched home the Panhard PL17 "El Tigre" that I horse-traded for. One thing is going to need fixed before I even get it off the trailer: the left front wheel locked up solid. I suspect that the lining shed off a brake shoe, due to rust, and wedged between the other shoe and the drum. So I have to pull a brake drum tomorrow.

And my old reliable '88 Diesel Suburban that I towed with began running poorly. Seems to surge at idle, and then takes off OK, only to develop a prolonged flat spot before it gets a second wind, and resumes accelerating. At a steady 60 mph, it has a random miss. I'm thinking I may have taken on some bad fuel. Will give it a dose of the Stanadyne fuel treatment, and service the filters. Kicking in the auxiliary electric lift pump did not help at all.

535 The Kennedy-Khrushchev Conference for Dummies
Remedial history for Barack Obama.

http://www.weeklystandard.com/Content/Public/Articles/000/000/015/149gqohu.asp?page=1

By all accounts, including Kennedy's own, the meetings were a disaster. Khrushchev berated, belittled, and bullied Kennedy on subjects ranging from Communist ideology to the balance of power between the Soviet and Western blocs, to Laos, to "wars of national liberation," to nuclear testing. He threw down the gauntlet on Berlin in particular, all but threatening war.

"I never met a man like this," Kennedy subsequently commented to Time's Hugh Sidey. " talked about how a nuclear exchange would kill 70 million people in ten minutes, and he just looked at me as if to say 'So what?'"

... The following year brought the Cuban missile crisis, another sequel to Khrushchev's reading of Kennedy's weakness. Close as the Cuban missile crisis brought the two sides to war, however, it was perhaps not the most consequential effect of Khrushchev's reading of Kennedy's weakness. Persuaded that he needed further to demonstrate "fearlessness and backbone," in the words of William Manchester, Kennedy observed to Reston that the only place where the Communists were challenging the West in a shooting war was in Southeast Asia. Summarizing Kennedy's own evaluation of the aftermath of the Vienna conference in his 2003 biography of Kennedy, Robert Dallek writes that Kennedy "now needed to convince Khrushchev that he could not be pushed around, and the best place currently to make U.S. power credible seemed to be in Vietnam."
... What harm can possibly come of a meeting between enemies? There are many, like Obama, who say that no harm can come from talking. To paraphrase JFK's June 1963 Berlin speech, let them come to study the Vienna conference.

545 You can quite easily build a "free-power radio" based upon the same general principle. Two radios in one box. One of which is tuned to a strong local station, and feeds into a rectifier, to make a low voltage DC current, which then powers germanium transistor in the other radio, which can tunes stations in the normal way. It would surprise me if there were not a Youtube instructional for it.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon


That's quite fascinating!

And how about this idea based on it:

One of the older generations of iPods (the fifth generation mini I believe) had an AM radio built in to the mp3-player, all in an extremely tiny package, like one-inch square and about 1/8 inch thick. But of course you have to recharge the darn thing after about 8 hours of use.

BUT, based on what you said, instead of having two radio receivers in a device, one powering the other, you could have a radio receiver and an mp3 player in a single device, with the radio side powering the mp3 side.

Thus, it could look exactly like a fifth-generation iPod mini, but never have to be charged, because the radio half, instead of being used as a radio, is used to gather energy to run the mp3 half!

I'll call this device "Infinite Music." Gotta trademark the name ASAP!

Scaling, zombie. The "free-power" radios work because they used a long-wire antenna for the power side, and you had to be sort of close to a 50,000 watt broadcaster. Not next door, but within a few miles. Still, you might get half a volt DC, which is enough to make the old germanium transistors amplify. Probably wouldn't get so much as a click out of the silicon IC's in an iPod.

I have spare injectors, maybe 2 sets of them. And a spare injection pump. This thing uses the old oblong silver box style of Stanadyne fuel filter. If I don't have a new one on hand, I can get one real easily.

Step one: pop hood, Mark I eyeball inspection, check air filter, might have mouse nest in it.

Step two: put Stanadyne fuel conditioner in tank, drive truck a dozen miles or so locally to get it circulating through the injection pump.

Step three: if problem persists, buy new fuel filter and install.

Step four: if that doesn't fix it, take it to my Diesel mechanic buddy for an expert opinion, before swapping injection pump and/or injectors.

562 Beware "free power". The radio company may sue you. :-)

Power companies already have. Years ago, there was a test case. Somebody had figured out how to couple to a long distance power transmission line. To do this (and get any power out of it), you need on the order of miles of a wire to run parallel with the transmission line. I worked out the details back when I could do this stuff easily.

Anway, it was some ranchers out West. They'd noticed some nasty shocks from long runs of fencing that weren't grounded and a light bulb went off.

By tuning the circuit, and getting the impedance right and all that, with long enough "antenna" wire, you can extract kilowatts of power from a HV line. It's capacitive coupling in circuit theory terms. The wavelength is too long to even worry about going to full wave theory.

Anyway, the power company took them to court charging them with stealing power. They said, no, they were simply making use of the EM field the power company was leaking on their property.

The judge ruled in favor of the power company. The power company, correctly, argued that they were coupling to the power line, and changing the way those fields behaved in order to extract energy from them. Normally, a power line radiates only a tiny amount of power. The wavelength at 60Hz is too long. There is some tiny amount, but it is negligible.

Now, with an antenna at radio frequency, you are intentionally radiating, throwing energy away. However, you an "near field" couple to an antenna and change the field and make the driving antenna's draw more power than the source. You alter the amount of energy it normally throws away.

So, if you start near field coupling to antennas, you are doing that same coupling to draw power.

564 Doing some re-wiring years ago, I put a test meter on a long-abandoned run of early Romex, and got something like 16 volts. I knew damn well this wire was cut off at both ends. There were no doorbells or other low-voltage circuits in the house. We had to go and have a drink on that one.

Turned out the blank cable ran next to the 240 line for the water heater. No contact, no short. Just induced current. Enough to light up a bulb.

This is true. But in practical terms, all you can get with a hundred-foot antenna is mere milliwatts, unless you are right next door to the broadcasting array. People don't do it much, except as a curiosity, because it doesn't capture enough power to be truly useful.

Nowadays, with all the wi-fi and Bluetooth stuff out there, maybe somebody should revisit the idea with power receivers in the UHF to microwave part of the spectrum.

Good article, glad it got dredged up, and it hits on a point about the Left.

One of the things near and dear to the hearts of Leftists is the abolition of success and merit. The Left's idea of equality can't stand as long as some things are praised and others are detested, so they promote trash and mock anything enobling.

They would rather live in a world without any masterful artists, inventors, or brain surgeons as long as it meant that everyone got exactly the same size slice of the pie. According to what passes for their thought processes, it's not fair that some people dedicate their lives to mastering a craft, thus can command a higher salary than a rank amateur.

I couldn't find the threads at the other blog I post at where this came up but the back story is that it was an art discussion that went over 4 threads if memory serves. The conversation just kept going and going. I had mentioned your piece and the technical aspect provoked some additional discussion. The question I had:

Do you think a more fair comparison could be made using Frey's more technically mature "Weeping Woman" or "Falling Man in Suit"? She was working with ceramics and she eventually created statues 14 feet tall (indeed, I didn't believe it until I started looking at some pictures).

569 I've heard stories about people coupling to RF transmitters. One I remember was some guy, and engineer, living close to a military base was able to couple to one of the radars and get useful power.

If you're getting any significant power, it's going to show up and be measurable, and they caught him. And being military stuff, they might have suspected it was more that just tapping energy.

An even more recent "mature" work by Frey is her "Seated Woman" from 2002:

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/293789575669403763/

Sorry, but this still just reeks of artistic incompetence that no one is brave enough to point out: In this case, Frey is not apparently trying to make something ugly, but instead beautiful, yet even so the finished work is all out of proportion and apparently "boneless" -- i.e. a good sculpture can induce in the viewer the sensation that the stature is a living thing, with flesh on actual bones -- whereas "Seated Woman" gives the opposite impression, that it's just misshapen clay formed into lumps with very little (if not zero) regard for the actual realities of the human form.

I understand that she's "not trying" to be realistic, but I stand by my theory that the reason she doesn't attempt anything realistic is that she is incapable of producing anything realistic. She hews to an art standard that matches her skill level.

Does my insistence on "old school" skills make me a barbarian in the eyes of modern art enthusiasts? Most likely. But I don't care what they think. Give me a statue by Praxiteles made 2,400 years ago over anything made by Frey or her ilk today.

574 The left came by its new aesthetic quite late. In the old school, they railed at the ugliness of industrial culture and longed for an Arts and Crafts past. Carl Sandburg was as red as they got in the day, and he was a huge fan of Hokusai and Hiroshige. Meditated over them.

Where did I see it, that the Soviets accused the CIA of creating abstract art, just to cut the moral underpinnings from under mankind? They claimed the high ground...

Rand parodied the leftist cultural elite toying with the deliberately stupid and ugly in the early 40's. I don't think it really caught on until the mid-50's.

Those sculptures all look a lot less technically proficient than the Pink Lady. They seem to be little more than three-dimensional diagrams, upon which to hang Picasso-styled color schemes. None of them appeal to me, whereas Pink Lady appeals to my sense of humor. Looks like a cartoon portrait of your typical Jerry Brown voter.

Tom Hayden is dead.

Posted by: Meremortal, Bigly Matters... at October 24, 2016 02:34 AM (3myMJ)

579 #513 One day, a good 5 years after Dad passed,, I was
thinking of him and felling particularly down. I looked over at the car
next to me at the stoplight - it was Larry! (Dad)! In his old Maxima.

I sat there staring. Horns honking behind us, he sat there looking
back, not moving. Finally, he just smiled his crooked grin, did his
usual wink, and turned off, while I sat there stunned. It. Was. Him. No
doubt.



It still haunts me to this day, and I don't believe in that kind of shit.

And no, I wasn't high, and I didn't imagine it.

That's totally trippy, Chi! Must have given you quite a lot to think about in the ensuing days.

About a month ago, I saw a man walking who I could have sworn was Mr. Deplorable. I didn't have my glasses on and his face wasn't visible, which helped the illusion. You must understand that while I fully understood that it wasn't him, my brain just feasted on the illusion. Lasted a good 5 seconds and it was oddly delightful.

Bernard Lewis in his book "The Middle East" took up the theme of art and architecture in the collapsing Ottoman empire. The Ottomans were importing themes and styles they didn't create or understand and started to kludge them together into ugliness. To stretch the idea, one could say that the interminable music samples used in pop and hiphop music is similar. Not sure how this applies to Frey's attempts at sculpture, or why I brought this all up, but here we are. Pollute the public square and to isolate those who would disagree maybe.

=====================
What they think is immaterial. Most modern art is a reflection of a lack of discipline borne of laziness and impatience. They aren't willing to work hard enough to develop skill and vision. IMHO they know they will never attain high art, and therefore mock past greatness.
Leads to what we see today, everywhere. Petulant children tearing down institutions requiring self-discipline, and great effort and personal responsibility.

595 I wasn't around for the book thread this morning but I recently learned something I had not previously heard about JFK. 'Eccentric Orbits' is a book about the Iridium rise and fall and rise by John Bloom aka Joe Bob Briggs.

In the history of satellites section, it is mentioned that Kennedy was for some reason dead set against the commercialization of space, despite the fact that this would be a huge advantage for the West. There were specific actions taken to make space activity nearly impossible for anyone not working on a government sponsored project.

This meant we wasted decades in which entrepreneurs might have advanced us greatly beyond where we are now, with people like Musk and Bezos working towards goals that were within reach long, long ago.

The big bad of the current Walking Dead story arc. He is still around in the current comics, although they are set several years after the material the TV show is covering. Negan is what DandD players would call Lawful Evil, with occasional veering into Chaotic Evil. He has taken it upon himself to do what needs to be done but cannot be done by the main characters if they are to keep their grip on civilization.

My favorite tv bleeping, and it had me laughing out loud, was watching a show called 'Bait Car'. The cops, in various cities, use a bait car to catch car thieves. The car is rigged to be able to remotely shut the engine off, as well as locking the car doors keeping the thieves inside. Now most of the thieves are of a certain hue and generally under 25. The cars have hidden cameras and microphones to be used as evidence in court. When two or three of the little Dindus hop in the car to steal it, you'll hear things like, 'Let's get going, brah', and the like. But what is hysterical is when they start saying, 'Get this bitch in gear, mah nigguh' or similar. There is always a bleep. Now this is these dindus calling each other that word that is so bad that it must be bleeped. Seriously, that's just fucked up.

614 Mel Brooks was obligated to get two takes for everything in Blazing Saddles, one with filthy language, and one for television. This with a hundred n-bombs passing by with a wave. Censorship was different then, and none of it's logical, but it's probably best just to laugh about it. Surprisingly, every line in the clean version better.

With one exception, of the "Lepetomaine Tollway" gag. Slim Pickens says "We're going to have to go back and get a shitload of dimes." A great line, and one I didn't hear until after seeing the tv version many times.

No matter what they dump, the only people that will hear about it are those that go and find it on the webz. Not only will the MSM not report on any revelations and tidbits, they will work to discredit them, declare them as out of context, altered, illegal to read and probably exposed at the behest of the Russians. If there is something so juicy it is making news despite their efforts there will be a new Trump "scandal" brought to light to distract attention for a few days. The MSM is despicable and irredeemable.

653 One of the more interesting revelations in recent years about the missile crisis was that JFK did not use the so-called "Trollope ploy" when it came to Khrushchev's offers to remove the missiles.

If you recall the history, Khrushchev first gave a rather conciliatory offer and then the next day issued a harder demand that the US remove missiles from Turkey in return for removal of the Soviet missiles. The claim by the JFK people was that they smartly ignored the second demand and accepted the first.

Not so. They had always agreed to remove the Jupiter missiles from Turkey in any agreement but they never wanted that made public. In fact it was only until 1989 that JFK speechwriter Ted Sorensen admitted that the agreement always included removing the Jupiter missiles.
