Monday Night Overnight Open Thread (10/24/16) [Mis. Hum.]

You thought Monday October 24, 2016 was tough. You should have been around on Thursday October 24, 1929. The Great Depression kicked off on this day 87 years ago.

Those Morons who had parents who lived during this time were taught some serious financial lessons. One of those lessons could have been what they ate for sammiches. To this day your humble OB enjoys a good Bologna sandwich.

It's National Bologna Day!!!It still isn't too late to go and have your better half make you a Bologna sammich.

So Bologna isn't for you. Patience Morons. Tomorrow, Tuesday October 25th, will be National Greasy Foods Day. Enjoy!

As an 8 year old, my parents sent me to visit my grandfather 4 hours away by train. Ah, the good old Chicago Northwestern. My how times have changed.

Happiness, we don't need no stinkin' happiness here.

Corporations intent on making employees more engaged and creativeare focusing on happiness as the answer. Chief Happiness Officer is anactual job at many companies.

But most scientists say that creativity calls on persistence and problem-solving skills, not positivity. Computational scientist Anna Jordanous at Kent University and linguist Bill Keller of Sussex University in Englanddug through through over half century of study on the creative process in various fields, and isolated 14 components of creativity. Happiness wasn’t one of them.

From The Land of Make Believe Washington, D.C. where money and stupidity grows on trees. Are you a failure in the private sector? Do you yearn to be a government employee? Do you believe in unicorns and pots of gold at the end of the rainbows? If so Uncle Sam has a job for you. Yes, you can become a Diversity Inclusion Specialist and make over $100,000 a year. Include this while you're at it.

Iceland has a population of approximately 332,000 people. Even Iceland voters are pi$$ed. The Pirate Party appears to be in position to win a large number of seats in Parliament. We have no idea when the Pirate Party will reach our shores. However, it is safe to say that there are numerous parties which should walk the plank. IYWIMAITYD

The 19 countries with the highest standard of life.

Youth development index. U.S.A. doesn't rank well.

Australia admits they have an illegal gun problem. Amnesty program launched.

As usual, facts have little to nothing to do with anti-gun policy, especially in the Land Down Under. And so we’re not surprised to read Reuters report that “Australia on Friday announced a gun amnesty for next year after a criminal intelligence report estimated there were 260,000 illegal firearms in the country

Hosting a party for "whites" only. Not so good. That would be discriminatory. Hosting a party for persons of color only is a different story and acceptable.

A leaked Soros memo exposes the corruption of Obama & Clinton. Follow the money and have a score card handy to keep track of the players.

Wow Hammer, I feel slack, I use the 1928 edition.

True
story, I wanted to get married with the old prayer book and my liberal
priest said no way, our Parrish only uses the new prayer book, fck
you.Well I happened to know that you CAN use the the 28 prayer book for a
marriage and burial. That was part of the deal to get the new prayer
book.

I called the bishop's office to confirm what I already
knew. At our next meeting the priest rather snottily said "Well didn't
think it meant so much to you that you would call the bishop"

In other words, you caught me in a lie and your an asshole not me.
Needless to say my pledge the next year went to zero. I got married with the 28 prayer book.

That's really just a list of the 19 richest commie countries. For example, read the entry for Belgium to see what it "really important" on this list:

16. Belgium - 86.19. The HQ of the European Union scores highly on social progress and demonstrates that sometimes being a smaller country makes it easier to look after all your inhabitants.

Today, my father, who died in 1989, would have turned 100. He had to support his mother and 3 younger sisters when his dad died when he was 19. Worked on the farm in the morning and then went to work second shift in a factory. The man worked like a dog until his health finally broke and he had to retire at 62. The area the farm was in had become suburban by the time I was a kid, but he could still drive around it and point out where all the farms had been and who had owned them.

I miss him terribly.

My guess is that no whites wanted to show up, so they said, "No whites allowed!" as a kind of sour grapes.

And I think that liberal whites are guilty of using blacks as a kind of stepping stone, in order to make themselves feel more "inclusive". I don't blame blacks for feeling used and resenting it.

124 First found out about Den Beste from reading Insty and Rachel Lucas.

Lotta twists n' turns, but became close with Kim DuToit and family, got to meet and know Bill Whittle at a gig they hosted at their house, too.

I think there was more intellectual heft per gigabyte on the 'net back then, and the only reason today's 'net compares is due to size, scope and speed.

Wasn't unusual to read an Ace Movie Review length essay, several times a week from one of many esteemed writers then, either.

Luminaries such as Wretchard, who we've come to know as Richard Fernandez, Whittle, Victor Davis Hanson, and more.

Now, we're reduced to Never Trumpers typing Wheaties pissing plaints and missives, and people count 'em as meaningful writers.

Bah.

I became very dis-enamored of George Will about 30 years ago, when I actually read a couple of his books. He has always been a big government kind of "conservative". The government should do BIG THINGS with people's money. And George Will should be the kind of guy telling them, advising them, on just what BIG THINGS they should do. Never run for office, just be the BIG IDEA guy.

What a maroon.

177 124 First found out about Den Beste from reading Insty and Rachel Lucas.

Lotta twists n' turns, but became close with Kim DuToit and family, got to meet and know Bill Whittle at a gig they hosted at their house, too.

I think there was more intellectual heft per gigabyte on the 'net back then, and the only reason today's 'net compares is due to size, scope and speed.

Wasn't unusual to read an Ace Movie Review length essay, several times a week from one of many esteemed writers then, either.

Luminaries such as Wretchard, who we've come to know as Richard Fernandez, Whittle, Victor Davis Hanson, and more.

I remember reading all the ones you mentioned, plus LGF and Gates of Vienna (although I think that came a bit later). I don't remember in what order I found them. They all had each other on their blogrolls back then.

It started when I began obsessively reading the news in the days and weeks after 9/11. I didn't have a home computer for awhile. I moved back into my dad's house just two days before 9/11. My mom had died a few months earlier, and he was alone and his health was deteriorating.

So I didn't have an internet account at home at the time. I used to stay after work and read the blogs. I remember Bill Whittle started out as a commenter on Rachel's blog. I don't think I commented much back then. I finally bought a home computer and got an internet connection in 2004.

I used to comment at a number of places, but I've cut back a lot in the last couple of years. Some of the blogs have disappeared, and I grew away from some others. Now it's mostly here, with an occasional comment elsewhere.

I've been trying to share this story with you, but keep missing you.
My husband came to me (in spirit, as it were) a
few months after he passed. There was a paranormal sign, even, which
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.

We have, uh, "history" with these neighbors. Since the dogs aren't throwing things at us, vandalizing us, having loud, abusive, domestic incidents, knocking on our door asking for help late at night because they can't rely on their own household members, or stealing from us like the humans have for 16 years, we hate to make a deal about barking dogs.

I was hoping to come up with some way to fix the problem that doesn't require cooperation from these people. Even if they thought their dogs shouldn't be disturbing the neighbors, they would not be able to control the dogs.

251 Heh. My crotchety old retired neighbor had some folks move in behind him, with a dog that would bark all night.

About the second or third night he marched over there and introduced himself. He said, "Oh, and by the way, if my dog barks and keeps you up at night, you have my permission to shoot him on the spot."

They always took the dog inside at night after that.

He was a great guy. RIP Jack.

Heh. Nice.

When I was growing up, the neighbors to one side of us had a dog that used to bark at night. My Mom started throwing water balloons over the fence at it.

After a few times of this, the dog learned. If for some reason it started barking late at night, it instantly stopped the moment it heard the back door open.

273 No Emmie, the electronic noise bark collars don't work. At least, not for long.

The ones that do work are collars that spray a blast of citronella in their face. Those work exceedingly well.
Posted by: Chupacabra at October 24, 2016 11:41 PM (kL1bp)




electronic dog collars definitely work. indeed they are far superior to the spray collars because the correction from a shock collar is nearly instantaneous while the spray collar takes a second or two to register.

if you are getting a shock collar to stop barking you have to go with something professional grade, not the stuff sold in your pet store. you will only need to charge your dog collar once a year if you get something good because it will only take two or three corrections to solve the problem.

go online to Dogtra or Tritronics.

It might take more than one application of the scent to do the trick. And don't put it in the same place twice, at least not for a few months.

And if the fox doesn't work, try the 'cat, or vice versa. Alternate 'em.

If you can ever gain non trespassing, un witnessed access to the back yard, one wee tiny drop, about a foot outside of the doggie door....and I doubt they'd even venture out.

Oh, and the scent will 'stick' longer, if you can apply it to something like a small, 1/2"x1/2" piece of old felt or old dark blanket.

Something that'll blend in with the dirt n' grass, that the owner won't "notice" and pick up.

Us hunters know quite a few tricks about covering scents, decoy scents and attractant scents.

Which is why a wise 'ette will always know to put a dab of Hoppe's No. 9 on her neck, behind each ear, to get and keep her man's attention.

That's very gracious of you.

The lady who owns the house is not bad, but she rents it out to various family members who are all a mess in one way or the other. She had to evict one group because the police told her that if they had to keep coming out they were going to start writing tickets.

A couple of grade-school occupants broke into our shed and stole some items, which we recovered from their yard. We asked the grandma if the boys could work off their misdeed. She agreed they could come over the next day at 10 am and do some tasks for us.

Next morning, I go over and ask for the boys. She says they are still asleep and she can't get them up. I say, "I will help you get them up," and she decides that she can get them up herself after all.

Seems like unless one is trading specific stocks or options on specific stocks, one can get killed in a hurry since there's so little swing in the overall market.

I'm buying Smith & Wesson calls for a Hillary win, and IWM puts in case of a Trump win. SPY calls/puts ATM or near ATM seem a bit pricey right now.

If you really want to get the most bang for your buck trading long options then you want to minimize your premium expenses. You want to buy in the money options. Now, you risk the full amount you pay for them, of course, and they cost more, but they have a much higher delta and you're not wasting so much money on premium that is going to deteriorate very quickly.

Further, you will find out that ATM calls don't move very much when the stock/index goes up. It really takes a ton of movement for ATM calls to move very much, since they have a delta of 50 to start.

Lastly, ATM options are all premium. You are fighting a really tough battle with that and need some incredible movement. Not saying it doesn't happen, but there's a reason why almost all option traders are sellers. Premium sellers make money 85% of the time. And you can bet that there is extra premium already in options for stocks that have some expectation of being seriously affected by the election.

Just my 2 cents on small option trading on the long side. Take it as you will.

Like I said, you'll have less leverage but that is the price for tracking the underlying (going with your option) more closely and, if the underlying doesn't move, preserving the intrinsic value. But ... you can lose it all if the underlying moves against you (even though there will be some premium accruing in the option as it moves towards ATM, though near expiration that would be tiny).

Good luck on however you choose to play it.

345 Sick Diesel Suburban is still sick. Had a devil of a time starting it today. Seems not to be getting enough fuel. And there is a fuel leak; I found diesel all over the safety chains for the trailer when I unhitched it today.

Local parts store had neither air nor fuel filter in stock, but will get them in Wednesday, so I will have another look at it then. Could be a rubber hose between filter on firewall and the injection pump is bad. That would cause a leak, and also reduce head-side pressure on the IP. Means taking the intake manifold off to get at it, but that's not too hard on a 6.2 engine.

And I got the stuck wheel off the little Panhard PL17. Wheel cylinder was stuck. Cleaned the shoes, honed the cylinder, and put it back together. Rolled it off the trailer. So that's done.

-Posted by: musical jolly chimp at October 25, 2016 12:34 AM (WTSFk)

The money lines aren't easy to read, (they are ratios), so here's a tutorial as to what they mean...

http://preview.tinyurl.com/zaahl96

When my teams are involved, I never bet. I will not put money on anything that involves emotion.

That being said, (against my rooting interests), I would take the Cubs in six games.

I'll take Cleveland in Game 1, Chicago in Game 2 and after that, it depends on the pitching match-ups.

I've said in the past that I can "afford" to lose ten grand on a game/series, but I'd never risk that amount without solid numbers. It would hurt. Bigly.

When I said that I would "Bet The House" on Kansas City last year, it was because every speculative indicator forecast the eventual result.

-I didn't bet anything, because I'm not a "Betting Man". I'd rather take long-term forecast indicators and adjust to the market opportunities, as a Fantasy Baseball season allows.

This season? It indicates a Cubs win.

I'll not put money on it, however; due to the emotional involvement with my hometown team.

I have also not bet one red cent on any individual baseball game, ever. I have bet on series and Champions with varying results.

--To call myself a "prognosticator" would be an egotistical call to the wild. I'm just a jackass with a keyboard, as many will tell you.

That being said? You might want to put a hundred bucks on the Cubs to win the Series if you can afford it.

I won't, though. I am "too close" to the "action" to be reliable.

G'Night, Ev'ry-Buddy!

To SMFH:

I have not been around for awhile and I had not read of your glorious plight.

You may not believe in God, but He believes in you. Your strength and honor should bleed into the cognizance of every American, ma'am.

As I sit on my ass, typing on a keyboard, there are those that allow God's Grace to inculcate others to action.

While you may have a problem with God's grace, (as it were), I have no problem with praying for you and your charge.

Love him as if there were no tomorrow.

When "tomorrow" eventually comes, know that his God-Given escape is honored and blessed through Our Lord, Jesus Christ.

We, (as a Horde), love you and honor your sacrifice to a Beautiful Soul that you have come to know and Love, as well.

Doing God's work involves strength and tears.

-Thank You.

You're welcome. Last week I saw that episode where he went to the soup kitchen and the nuns wanted to give him a better coat. That got me curious. I never realized the coat was new in the first episode.

Btw, if you are really a cinnamon fan, stop buying it in the tiny spice jars and buy it by the pound! Much cheaper on Amazon, or online spice suppliers. I'm stocked up on all my favorite spices that way. Ginger, turmeric, cayenne, etc.

It is, and Michael of Tarsus just took a red pill, and then became a human hand grenade to both sides. Witness the carnage in the comments.

He just stunned both the audience, who hated Trump when they arrived and who expected to have that hate amplified at the outset, and the folks who hated Moore for the last 15 years.

YouTube has the views locked at sub-2,000. Yeah, right.

This is the most surreal thing I've ever seen in my life.

I'm in awe of who God can use. Michael of Tarsus needs to change his name.

If that doesn't work just search on YouTube: "Moore explains why Trump will win", and look for the video that is 4:22 in length.

This needs viralness.

406 Good Morning Morons. Today is Tuesday, October 25, 2016. On this day in 1415 Henry V of England and his lightly armored infantry and archers defeated the heavily armored French cavalry in the Battle of Agincourt on Saint Crispin's Day. In the past the media has portrayed this as a great victory of the longbow over the armored knights. Historians agree that it was the victory of mud over the heavily armored French.

415 >> the Battle of Agincourt on Saint Crispin's Day. In the past the media has portrayed this as a great victory of the longbow over the armored knights. Historians agree that it was the victory of mud over the heavily armored French.

Well, the mud caused the French chargers to flounder, but the rain wetted the French crossbow strings, making them stretch, and cause a considerable loss of range and power for the crossbowmens' bolts. English bowmen, however, could and did easily unstring their longbows and keep their strings dry until needed in battle. Their yardshafts where launched beyond the reach of the crossbowmen, to devastating effect.

Longbows for the Win!

420 Lots of interesting stuff, MisHum.

The wild life photos were very cool, except I didn't actually think all that much of the winner. I guess it won because the photographer was higher in the tree than the orangutan?

421 This discussion of the battle of Agincourt reminded me of the many miracles which occurred to give General George Washington victory over the British, against incredible odds. I was searching for one of those, and almost immediately found the following.

If you scroll down, you'll find the letter he wrote. There are many, many links.

Once I finish mining this site, I'm going to begin to read 'George Washington's Sacred Fire' by Peter Lillback. I think the book recommendation may have come from the old Glenn Beck of 2009.

Do not buy your spices from Penzey's - the owner is a raging prog and a real jerk. His sister owns The Spice House, with many of the same "family blends" and she has made a point of keeping politics out of her business. The two of them had a major split many years ago and she went off to start her own business.

432 Could the esteemed editors of this web site kindly stop posting links to "lists", "studies", "surveys" and the like? They are, one and all, composed of bogus tortured statistics and outright lies designed not to inform but to persuade or demoralize.
I mean, who is really surprised when a "study" commissioned by the UN finds that the United States is a corn-studded piece of shit that stinks on ice? Or a list of "top ten best" this/that/whatever puts Venezuela and Saudi Arabia ahead of Sweden or Great Britain?
