Thursday Night Overnight Open Thread (10/27/16) [Mis. Hum.]

thursday ont .jpg

This day in history. October 27, 1964 Ronald Reagan gave his famous "A Time For Choosing Speech" Here is the written text of his speech.

Here is the actual speech. Fantastic 29 minutes of The Gipper. It didn't help Barry Goldwater but it launched Regan's political career.

Our National Anthem, performed by a special young man. A job well done.

77 years ago today America's first hijacking took place.

Now - late on the afternoon of 27 October 1939 - Pletch was looking forward to going solo. He was not going to take the controls in the usual way, however. He was going to do so after shooting his pilot in the back of the head.

He may be long forgotten now, but Pletch came briefly to America's attention that autumn after booking tuition in Missouri with a pilot by the name of Carl Bivens. Midway through the third of these sessions, while airborne at 5,000 feet and sitting in the rear seat of a tandem training plane equipped with dual controls, he pulled a revolver from a trouser pocket and, without giving any warning, sent two .32 calibre bullets through Bivens's skull. Pletch then managed to land the plane, dumped the instructor's body in a thicket, and took off again, heading north to his home state to...well, what he intended to do was never really clear, and we will come to that.

Immigration in Europe is not going to end well. Syrian refugee has struck it rich in Germany scamming the system. Industrious little guy.

James Comey is called out. Retired FBI agent authors pointed letter to Comey. It is too bad that the MSM didn't pick up on it.

Polls are confusing. Understanding the American public is as well. Record number of Americans oppose gun bans. Yet how many of these Americans will vote for a Democrat who wants to destroy the 2nd Amendment?

Wow, simply unbelievable. NPR reports on Wikileaks. They are a day late and a dollar short but at least they are reporting it.

Israel will not back down on its history.


Israel presented an ancient fragment of text in Hebrew referencing Jerusalem and recalled its ambassador to UNESCO in a gesture of protest against a resolution which criticized Israel for restricting Muslims' access to a holy site in the city.


Hey Honey, let's live longer. Before we hit the sheets (wink-wink) let's have another slice of garlic toast.

Give me a burger and a beer. Different strokes for different folks. Wine and insects does that sound tantalizing to you?

Is the ONT bullsh!ting you? Are you a fibber? How much do you know about the science of stretching the truth? Take the quiz. It's painless, really.

Neanderthal sex could explain why Europeans and Africans have different immune systems.

Scientists investigating the immune system of modern humans have found significantly different responses in Europeans and Africans, and ancient breeding with Neanderthals tens of thousands of years ago could be partly to blame.

The discovery could explain why Africans are generally born with stronger immune systems than Europeans, and why they're more predisposed to certain autoimmune conditions.

Devotees of science versus followers of religion. Are only the latter to be taken to task for their alleged superstition?

Throughout the modern Western world, it is taken as a given that the religious members of a society are naive ignoramuses who are immune to rationality, to science, to the facts of life, believing as they do in ancient superstitions.

They are to be contrasted with the rational beings from the secular part of the society, like scientists, as well as that part of the population who believe in, and who revere, science and said scientists, and who altogether, as one, laugh their heads off at the hopeless credulity of the religious folks.

But ain't it true that once you start going into the details of the scientific scoops -- in an entirely rational, an entirely factual, and an entirely scientific manner, I might add -- a somewhat different picture starts to emerge?

When we start to follow the news somewhat critically, aren't we surprised to learn how one scientific "fact", or "truth", after another turns out to be wrong or spurious?

And furthermore, isn't there a darker, a much darker, side to the affair, one that the rational science thinkers cannot seem to fathom?

Warning: this post, in seven parts, is the length of a book chapter.

A lengthy read. But very interesting.


The Dating Game. Did you know that a convicted rapist and serial killer was a contestant?


Back when I was a kid, recess was given to elementary school students. Kids need recess not substitutes.

There is a psychiatric hospital still open in England. Although it is still open a portion has been closed and abandoned for over 40 years. It's an eerie place.

There are some extremely creepy places in this world. Places that have been left abandoned for decades or even places that hold mysteries that have yet to be solved. That is exactly how this creepy place in York, UK has been left. Some thought it was an abandoned psychiatric hospital, but it's still in used to this day. But one part of the hospital has been abandoned for over 40 years and this photographer decided to take a look. These images are disturbing to say the least. Take a look below at this abandoned psychiatric hospital.

The average High School Guidance Counselor should read the following.Don't do what you love for a career, do what makes you money. There are exceptions to this rule but for the most part it makes sense.

Do you like Halloween? Are you into Jack O' Lanterns? Here's a cool way to carve a pumpkin.

How to recycle old Halloween costumes. Good luck if your kids have steel trap memories.

Canadian bad candy. Why does such an objectively inferior product continue to thrive? Quite simply, a holiday where strangers give candy to children has a way of encouraging illogical consumer choices fiscal responsibility. Maybe our Canadian Morons will chime in about this candy.

Remember this PSA? The actor has had a change of heart. He now favors legalization of marijuana.

18 On topic of pre-out-of-Africa contributions to Eurasian genomes, they're still finetuning to what degree the Denisovans contributed to the Asian side of the supercontinent.

Original reports were that the Denisovans contributes 3-6% of Pacific Islander genes. That seemed like a lot, and also like a wide variation. Some researchers have found that the Denisovans only contributed about 1% to the islanders. The remainder is from yet another pre-human population, or else from a very early branch-off from the Denisovans.

54 I recall reading that Neanderthal had lower Dunbar Numbers - the number of people you can count on as friends / the limit to how big your Tribe is. If they were in smaller bands, they wouldn't have got the opportunities for person-to-person transmission that a larger band would have, much less a city.

So, not as much need for a hardcore immune system.

57 Actually I am now wondering if influenza and other shifting-antigen viruses had an effect on the Neanderthal tribe-size.

A good immune system isn't much good against a shifting virus like the flu. Also since much of the flu's damage is done by the immune system's overreaction, a good immune system might even be harmful.

The best defence against the flu is not to get it in the first place, and staying away from people (and from livestock) does help against that.

Sure ... You and I can read books and look at pictures and listen to songs and associate the words and images and lyrics to concepts and make conclusions from there.

Most people can't. And most people never could. Most people just have to touch the stove to figure it out.

How to spot a concealed handgun.

Posted by: Laurie David's Cervix at October 27, 2016 10:37 PM (kdS6q)

79 As I pass through my incarnations in every age and race, I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market-Place.
Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.

We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn.
That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breath of Mind,
So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.

We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market-Place;
But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.

With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch.
They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch.
They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings.
So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.

When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "Stick to the Devil you know."

On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Heading said: "The Wages of Sin is Death."

In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul; But, though we had
plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Heading said: "If you don't work you die."

Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew,
And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
That All is not God that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four-
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man-
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began:-
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,

And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wobbling back to the Fire;
And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins

When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!p { margin-bottom: 0.1in; line-height: 120%; }

Moscow mules with my favorite $9/l vodka and small batch ginger beer. Doing the math, this works out to about a $1/drink.

The world is a vampire, sent to drain.

Trying to stay out of DOOM's way.

Our mama's are getting older. My mom is mentally sharp, but physically falling apart. My mother in law is going the other way, physically she is strong as a horse, but she is losing her faculties. Ai-yi-yi.

Work is work. I get a paycheck that keeps things going, and wifey does too, and that's a lot more than a lot of people have. And I checked out zilllow and 18 months after purchasing this house we are up 15%. Can't complain.

Have no idea what to make of this whole election and polling and all that. All things being equal, if all the outlier polls had Trump up 14%, I would feel better. I keep saying our hope lies in Brexit. I mean, polling is a science, right? And yet they go from Trump up 2 to Hillary up 14. That doesn't jibe.

I lift my eyes up to the hills, where does my help come from?

Army football is destined to break my heart. Just hang. On. To. The. Football. Haven't beaten Navy since 2001. Any given Saturday but come on.

.223 is at least plentiful if not actually cheap. Forget that musket business.

I have a good wife, good kids, a good dog.

Thanksgiving is coming up. Remember the thankfulness.

So feeling a bit melancholy, crew. Buying some pudding cups just in case.

But I also told her she would be relatively poor, and frequently worried about her job situation. OTOH, nurses are always in demand everywhere in the country and make a decent living.

She's now a pediatric nurse and loves her job per her own admission. I'm just happy that she's happy.

On another "smart military blog", someone opined that it's time to redeploy the Pershing II MRBMs to Europe. Which did such a good job of helping draw to a close Cold War 1.0.

Except, as someone else then noted, the specific warhead fitted to the Pershing II has been taken out of service, by the unanimous concurrence of our elite foreign policy mandarinate in D.C., with no successor system in place.

163 "Rudyard Kipling won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907."

I was stuck socializing with some bien-pensant types recently who were thrilled with the news about the Nobel for Bob Dylan.

I wish I had remembered the above, so I could have said, yes, there's no better commemoration for Minnesota Mud Throat than being a Nobel laureate in the same category as the imperialist, militarist, sexist, racist monster that is Kipling.

When in high school I had an after school job in a local drug store and one of the things they carried at Halloween was "Smarties". Yes, the chalky ones. On a dare from a cow orker, I took a package, crushed it to powder, and snorted it like you see people doing cocaine in the movies.

I just need to choose between the Royal KMM from 1939 or the Underwood from the mid-1940s. They are the large, desk top machines, not portables, and work as well as the day they left the factory. And I like the idea that something older than me can continue to function. :-)

I always thought people of European origin were noted for having uniquely robust immune systems...
Posted by: Zettai Ryoiki at October 27, 2016 11:24 PM (kP16F)


I would guess that the "more robust" immune system comes from living in an ecosystem that evolved with humans. Every freaking thing there is developed to kill humans, from parasites to fungal infections to major predators.

One of the studies I read about from the 90's was a review of the difference between parasites and infections from the old world and from the Americas. Pre-colombian parasites and infections tended to be generalist-type infections with animal reservoirs, the Old world ones tended to be more human specific. I would expect a similar situation moving from Africa to Europe as well.

Follow that up with the view that immune systems are expensive, metabolically. If there is less need for it, it makes evolutionary sense (in a way) to reduce the drain on the system and focus on things that might be of more use.

Canadian Smarties are multi-colored candy-coated chocolate. Like M and M's except without the "W"s on them.

237 ?! Maybe I've confused them. To me, Smarties and Sweet Tarts are the same.

Posted by: t-bird at October 27, 2016 11:47 PM (29QcC)


Or maybe I'm thinking of something else?

The Smarties I'm thinking of are quarter-sized discs that have a very chalky texture and usually come in black, white, grey .,.. and I think that's it.

238 Sugar Daddys were caramelized corn sugar on a stick and Bit O'Henrys were honey taffies with tiny peanut pieces.

Smarties lacked flavor so sweettarts came along to blow them out of the water. The ascetic acid will eat you up.

And that once they, the youthful creatives, had eventually attained to power in Hollyweird, and would then be making genuinely funny and original content, laugh tracks would be relegated to the same discard pile as silent movies.

267 Checked the PowerLine "war" post. Sub-meh.


But interesting in other ways.


The Daily Mail continues the tradition of spectacular inaccuracy in all things military and icky by identifying a Russian mobile IRBM as the "biggest nuclear missile" the country's ever had. WTF? Haven't checked, but it's probably smaller than the second stage of an SS-18/R-36.


And the figures for "Russian menace" and "NATO response" as listed in the Daily Mail article cited are pretty funny. We're talking smaller numbers, total, than would have been involved for an individual second-tier NATO or Warsaw Pact member during a large exercise back in the 60s.


One factoid that intrigues me (and has precisely nothing to do with any "NATO/Russia crisis!!!") is 5,000 Russian troops in Yerevan, Armenia. The Russian border guards never really left (making arrival at the Yerevan airport a trip down memory lane back in the 90s), but 5,000 troops sounds like something else. Above all, most likely, an "F U" to Azerbaijan.


And I know it's become nearly an article of faith that "Putin wants to re-conquer the Baltics!!!", but I don't think so, it makes no sense, and I'd love to be edumucated by someone with more than bald speculative statements that just re-state this claim.


Putin has yet to do anything both stupid AND important. Baltic shenanigans would easily fall in this category.

I don't know. It was not an EXPLICIT nullification of the law itself but it certainly was a refusal to apply the force of it to these particular defendants.
Even the defense was shocked, apparently.

Was it a fully conscious political act? Perhaps not --- but that may be a good thing. Seeing things as a political issue, "liberal" vs. "conservative," Democrat vs. Republican, etc., may paralyze reaction.
But if the simple sense of a community is that certain powers are acting like bullies, the people may unite against them.

No, but it was one of the worst blows the Left has suffered in years.

I've been told the Ruger is the bees knees...after an expensive trigger job, etc. My Marlin 795 has worked straight from the box with no problems whatsoever, I put the EOTech sights on it to make an Appleseed rifle (I have yet to attend though).

My own opinion, Ruger 10/22s, much like the vaunted M1911, is over-rated. Better firearms can be obtained cheaper, especially when you consider all the work the 10/22 and the M1911 seem to need just to make them reliable functioning firearms (or in the case of the M1911 how much cash you have to spend up front for a functioning reliable firearm that doesn't need a lot of extra work to make it so).

Putin's undoubtedly got more important things on his plate. However -

1.) The Baltics have large populations of Russian nationals (probably moved there by the Soviets)
2.) There's enough activity by Russian trolls - including what appear to be false flag stunts - that there are dedicated groups of volunteers in the Baltic states that spend their time policing chat rooms and dog-piling on trolls.

The fear right now is that the Russian government will pull a false flag operation designed to allow Moscow to claim that it's coming to the "aid" of the Russian nationals living in the Baltics.

Putin might not want to send the troops up there at this time. But he definitely hasn't forgotten about them.

junior, Latvia was the most "russified" (our friend Stalin). I'm aware of the irredentist concept. But these discussions universally "beg the question" (proper use of the term) by assuming Putin has a desire to re-acquire the Baltics by force, an assumption that refuses to make any sense no matter how many times it's repeated.


The Baltic states can easily (and probably should, anyway) keep things far below the point where there would be any plausible rationale for an extreme measure like force to "rescue" Russian ethnics.

318 I've owned a 452 Lux for over a decade now, and it's astounding in every respect.

It's superbly well made, has lovely lines, handles like a dream and shoots like a house afire.

Long as it's not a windy day, it'll stay under 1 MOA at 100 yards, with CCI Mini Mags. And that's with iron sights.

Shooting the Remington Subsonic ammo? Nearly as quiet as a can. There isn't any powder burning by the end of the 24 in. barrel, and no supersonic crack from the projectile.

And 12k rounds in stock just doesn't eat up space like centerfire rounds do. What's not to love?

There's a Czech regular on a gun forum, he provides good insight and news on gun-related issues there. One cool thing he reported was how there is a very prominent inclusion of historical American vehicles and re-enactors for WWII "liberation day" commemorations every spring.

*shrug* Every single 10/22 I know of needed a trigger job, which apparently adds at least a hundred dollars to the price of the gun. Range Partner has one that he put a little over $400 into and I can shoot right along with him using my $250 Marlin, out of the same bucket of ammo, with fewer FTL issues.


Likewise it seems that everyone I hear talking about their 1911 is telling me about all the work they have had done to it, or need to have done to it, or how they paid $800+ for their gun and haven't had a single problem with it. Meanwhile I have a Glock 36 (that I had to put different springs in, the 36 has a deservedly evil reputation for FTE in the Gen 2 that Glock never actually acknowledged - blamed it on limp-wristing - that doesn't seem to affect the Gen 3/4 guns) that I can shoot right alongside of them, all day every day, that I only paid $500 new for (plus the $30 spring set).

This is a post about Donald Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star being destroyed. The vast majority of comments on this post express disapproval (with the expected caveats about not liking Trump) on the grounds that destruction of property over political differences is not cool. Nice! I'm happy to see this viewpoint expressed.

But then you have this...

http://preview.tinyurl.com/zomwkpe

The vast majority of comments here regard a medical office potentially "discriminating" against trannies, and how that's totally not cool. But... doctors and nurses have to discriminate against "trans people" to some extent, or else they aren't doing their jobs properly.

A gynecologist who accepts an appointment with a male-to-female tranny, and treats HIM like any actual woman, for example, is wasting the patient's time at best and committing full-on malpractice at worst. No matter what modifications this patient is having done through surgery or drugs, his body remains essentially male. Any medical issues he has will be influenced much more by his biological sex than by what he personally believes his sex to be.

No, my friend; you do not have a problem with your uterus, or your ovaries, or your fallopian tubes or your cervix, because you don't even fucking have those parts. You do have a prostate though, even as a post-op, so you might need to see a proctologist for problems in that area, sir.

Medical practitioners must discriminate against trans-gender types to some extent, or else they just aren't doing their job. Period.

I've been looking through job ads for months and I've come to realize that I hate them all.
I think the job I'd like would be as a sassy housekeeper to an eye-rolling couple (I would be both a reason and source of eye-rolling). Not like Hazel - I'm not kind enough, and sometimes my humor burns like <fill in your own STD here>. The head of the house would respect my opinion despite himself, because I would create the most delicious dinners, and the lady of the house would be subverted by me in the end (no, not sexually).We would laugh a lot there. It wouldn't be particular clean, but it would be homey.After a few years of this, I would maybe meet a gentleman who could persuade me to let him get into my pants, and then we would settle in a nice cottage with a garden somewhere with only a few very trustworthy neighbors. We'd have guns hidden in every room just in case, and we'd can vegetables and drink wine and make love as much as we possibly could.We would die holding hands.

377 Back in the '90s, the front man for the Austin, TX based Tejano/Jazz/Big Band/Swing fusion group "Beto and the Fairlanes", quipped:

"Tejano music....yeah, that's German Polka being played on stolen instruments!"

Full house at the amphitheater by the San Antonio Zoo area. Brought down the house with that one, he did.

One track that band did was a straight up rendition of Glenn Miller's "Song of India".

Better than snorting coffee, that.

Seeing more than a few Trump signs in my 2x4 town in the Adirondacks, we're not noted for signage here of any political bent.

I have a vague memory of someone snorting a line of pure pharmaceutical grade caffeine.

Where I live, nobody had Hillary signs or stickers up until the polls made it look like she had it well in the bag. And then they started sprouting up like weeds.

And yet, this is Pennsylvania, where Philadelphia had 120%+ turnout for Obama.

People still drink that instant swill? I'm not advocating for Starbucks, but coffee beans can be found in practically any grocery store today and an electric coffee grinder is only around $15 (which is why I have two, one for coffee and one for spices, never confusing the two). I gave up instant when Mr. Coffee hit the scene in the late '70s, using pre-ground Folger's. For me now it's whole beans I grind ONLY. Yes, I can taste the difference.

It was bad on multiple levels. First, it simply didn't make any sense for her to be there. She admitted this, saying she was just looking to plug her book. All well and good but this was a bit above and beyond the call of media presence.

Then there was the general failure of the comics to have anything remotely creative to say. I had the impression that most had only the vaguest impression of who she and just knew she was part of a general category of people it was alright to hate for hate's sake.

So the result was just crap in every way.

The sad thing is women these days call you all sorts of names if you attempt to defend them, unless you were supposed to and didn't, in which case you get called all sorts of names.

I saw a guy that opened a door for a girl who (as she walked through the opened door) called him a sexist and said she could open her own goddamed doors. He grabbed her and pushed her back out and shut the door in her face, and then she really went apeshit on him.

464 So, *one plane* at LAX had mechanical issues, and it cascaded through the entire airport enough that our luggage didn't make it and we almost didn't make our overseas flight. Plus, our plane drove around in circles for an hour, waiting for our gate to be free. I was the last in the Space A line and got booted, so we've been slogging our way through commercial with a 3-year-old on very little sleep. One more flight and we'll see Daddy.

That's where they all hang out.

It was a right of passage 15 years ago at the University of Colorado to have sex on the 3rd&half floor.

Also during study nights during midterms a sorority freahmen and a fraternity freahmen would streak naked through the library. Absolutely hilarious and a great tension and stress breaker.

477 386 So this is gonna come out of nowhere but why we're those disgusting men allowed to call Ann Coulter a cunt 19 times on a roast of Rob Lowe. The fact that it happened has me steaming right now, and I know it happened forever ago, but I thought about the supposed outrage against Trump for some stupid ass comment he said in private and what happened to her in a supposed roast of Rob Lowe. So fucked up

481 I saw a guy that opened a door for a girl who (as she walked through the opened door) called him a sexist and said she could open her own goddamed doors. He grabbed her and pushed her back out and shut the door in her face, and then she really went apeshit on him.

Some days it just doesn't pay.

Something to be happy about: Trump has the highest support among black voters of any Republican candidate since Nixon. Polling between 16-19% last week. If he gets up to 25%, the Dems are pretty much toast.

It's not as good as we could be doing, but change has to start somewhere, and that's a humongous improvement versus the typical single digits.

Go Vote. Even if you think your vote doesn't matter do it anyway.

496 I like the Weather Channel's maps, but I hate their agenda. They are onto polluters now big time. With an article on all the horrors going on in this country by companies that are destroying this country. I see my area is highlighted, not sure why, not much industry around here, all shut down over the last 10 years, unless they mean the gas powdered electrical plants. gas from fracking!

497 492 and 493 Tim and Cato.

I'll cross molten lave (very rare in Kansas) to vote. My wife and most neighbors will vote, but lava would deter them.

We wait until election day because it's pretty convenient to vote at the church up the road.

Likewise. Depending on where the precincts are for the general, I've got one that's on my way home from work, and another that's a few blocks from where I live. Given the weird hours I work, I'm usually one of the first ones in, which means there's almost nobody there.

.I am amazed that Trump is actually not down by 20+ points due to the 24/7 negative attacks on him by virtually every media outlet in the Country. Their absolute refusal to even cover damning stories of clinton should force them to count every single bit of profit they make as in kind campaign contributions.

This isn't really about Trump anymore, this is all out war being conducted by the establishment to maintain the status quo and the msm is complicit in it. They are pi$$ed that it wasn't !jeb.

504 I have a deep, burning anger with the MAIM (Mainstream Agit-Prop and Indoctrination Media).

I remember listing to Radio Moscow and Radio Havana on shortwave while I was cruising around in the Grey Funnel Line back in the '80s. I was cynically amused at their stupidity.

Our media today is worse than Soviet-style lies back in the day.
