Overnight Open Thread (4 Nov 2016)

Next week outta be interesting. We have a terror threat on Monday, a shitty tightening election on Tuesday as well as the possibility of a cyber attack. I don't even understand why we're even mentioning the following:

U.S. military hackers have penetrated Russia's electric grid, telecommunications networks and the Kremlin's command systems, making them vulnerable to attack by secret American cyber weapons should the U.S. deem it necessary, according to a senior intelligence official and top-secret documents reviewed by NBC News.

So NBC News is looking at Top Secret docs and have no problems with that but seem put off by FBI leaks to Giuliani?

UVA Rape Hoax

So now that Rolling Stone and their reporter have been ruled liable in defamation suit, why is Jackie's identity still protected?

Samsung

Boy, Samsung is having a really bad year. Samsung's latest recall: washing machines that can burst apart.


Pentagon Job

I can't believe this is even a job. Pentagon has a team to review porn.

100 TV Themes On Guitar

Citi

Citi: Trump election could lead to 5 percent drop in S&P. Citi forgot to mention that they are the #4 on the list of top donors to Hillary.

Strange Pings

Canadian CP-140 Aurora investigates mysterious underwater pings in Arctic. It's gotta be aliens.

Bad Headline

Marines in Pacific banned from water activities after latest drowning. Before you freak out and think our amphibious brethren can't conduct an amphibious assault, it is referring to recreational activities.

Ron Burgundy

Heh. College that renamed communication school after Ron Burgundy now forbids saying 'anchorman'.

Dynatron

Dynatron's latest LP.

Male Birth Control

Trial made men grow breasts, sweat uncontrollably, go infertile for years. Granted, only around 5% grew breasts and sweated uncontrollably, but imma going to say no.

NFL

And the NFL wonders why its ratings continue to go down. Canton denies Stabler family ring and jacket.

Dog Rescue

Dog helps rescue screaming car their from animal hole. Should've just left him.

31 Messing with hormones is a tricky thing.

Remember those Propecia lawsuits? This was a anti-baldness drug. It lowered the production of DHT, the testosterone metabolite that messes up the hair follicles. The body then shunts the production of more estrogen....

They had men suing saying it made them turn into trannies. Growing breasts and wanting sex changes.

43 Siiiigh! Hello.

Technology has been at war with me all week. Haven't been able to keep up with the news, or follow much on Ace, posts or, especially, comments.

Naturally, this is while I'm struggling to get my latest video up prior to the election. Barely made it, got it posted this evening. Webworkshop #13 - Election 2016 Edition. Link in nic. Political satire and commentary, interrupted by three old political-ish songs (demonstrating why I don't do those anymore). Enjoy, spread the word to friends & enemies, embed, like, comment, and donate if you can so I can win the war against crumbling technology.

Now, off to read the no-doubt magnificent ONT post and find out what I've missed during the week. That is, if the computer doesn't fritz out on me again.

Officials said two horses were at a show in Las Vegas on Oct. 27 and returned to the Los Angeles Equestrian Center on Sunday.

-
From the severe conservative from the NR, Kevin D. Williamson:

Beyond that critical - irreplaceable - function, elections are a pretty dumb way to make decisions. Consider three controversial issues: the national debt, our anti-terrorism efforts in the Middle East, and climate change. To get a broad general understanding of the competing policy agendas touching any one of those issues requires a considerable amount of work; to gain a real command of any one of those issues at anything approaching real expertise requires a commitment of years of study and discipline; to truly master any one of those issues is not an avocation, but a career. Never mind that ordinary voters have neither the time nor in most cases the capacity to do that for one of those subjects, much less all three . . .

145 Sorry, gotta side with the Hall of Fame on this one.

Dealing with a family after an athlete dies is a huge pain in the ass because every member wants "something". Some family member would have gotten pissed that another family member got the ring, and another got the jacket and they got nothing.

I was with a minor league team when one of the players died. The team flew the family, plus extended family in from one of the most remote locations in Canada. Big $$$$ for the flights. Put them up in the nicest hotel in town for the weekend, on a weekend when a top10 college football team was hosting a game in town and NASCAR was holding a race an hour away, big $$$$ for those rooms. A van and a driver to take them wherever they wanted, and meals at the hotel and the nicest restaurant in town. We presented them with framed jerseys, and told them we would ship the jerseys to them.

The next week, we took the jerseys to UPS store for them to ship. They packaged them up real nice, and we paid a $150 to ship them. A couple of months later the family has contacted the local news bitching that we sent them the jerseys without paying shipping. I showed them our receipts and told them we paid for all the shipping and that is was a whole lot more than $50. Turns out the Canadian government charged them a tax on the framed jersey and that was our fault for not knowing what the Canadian tax authorities would do on something shipped.

Oh, and the family bitched that we only gave them 2 framed jerseys that each cost about $600 to produce.

So yeah, I can understand that the Hall doesn't want to deal with the families of deceased inductees.

The prose is terribly good, and it helps one see that this fucking mess we're in right now is just a blip and in the long run won't even merit a footnote.

173 The next week, we took the jerseys to UPS store for them to ship. They packaged them up real nice, and we paid a $150 to ship them. A couple of months later the family has contacted the local news bitching that we sent them the jerseys without paying shipping. I showed them our receipts and told them we paid for all the shipping and that is was a whole lot more than $50. Turns out the Canadian government charged them a tax on the framed jersey and that was our fault for not knowing what the Canadian tax authorities would do on something shipped.

Oh, and the family bitched that we only gave them 2 framed jerseys that each cost about $600 to produce.

So yeah, I can understand that the Hall doesn't want to deal with the families of deceased inductees.

UPS positively sucks for cross-border shipments into Canada. They charge a grossly-inflated "brokerage" fee for the simple task of collecting a 5 to 7 percent GST or HST (depending upon the destination Province). One tax, not two, and no Customs duty. Paperwork so easy, even I can do it. I had a truck cab headliner, worth about $300, shipped to me UPS, and the bandits dinged me $70 to collect the $21 GST due.

The Post Office charges "brokerage", too, but it's a $15 flat fee, regardless of the value of the product.

So, expecting a "gift", and having to pay UPS over a C-note to get it out of hock could tend to piss people off.

It wouldn't surprise me if that played a part, but I think there was more to it than that. When Ace was talking about rdbrewer's absence from the blog, he said he was getting complaints from the other cobs about rdbrewer posting pro Trump stuff in the sidebar. So, ace limited him to 1 Trump item per day.

That tells me that the other cobs who complained didn't want to be associated with a pro Trump blog.

217 Mr. Ed was played by a horse named Bamboo Harvester. They put him down in 1970, but Alan Young, the actor who played Wilbur said that wasn't true and they killed him by accident, giving him too high a dose of tranquilizer one time.

Young got quite fond of the horse, they say, and would visit him all the time in the stables after the show was cancelled.

He was a trained movie horse. They initially made the horses mouth move by a using a wire (you know that annoyed the hell out of the horse), but they said he actually learned to move his mouth on his own on cue.

The horse trainer they had to make the horse do all the moves would sometimes get mad and yell at Bamboo. When that happened, he would go over and get close to Young. Young was always friendly to him.

I'm part of 2 class action lawsuits. One for my car, which doesn't affect me in any reimbursements but I guess extends the warranty even more.

The other is for my computer graphics cards. NVidia GTX970's advertised 2 GB of high speed memory or something but its actually 1.5 GB of high speed memory and 0.5 GB of less fast. If you file the claim you will get $30 back which they figured was about the cost for the difference. Which I'm fine with getting back $60 for items I'm actually happy with.

Me too. I used to be up early, and ready, would watch the pre-game shows, switching back and forth from CBS to Fox. No longer. I will sometimes have a game on the TV, but I am more often than not doing something else; sawing wood for my wife's carpentry projects, or sorting the massive stack of photos my Mom and Dad foisted on me to distribute to assorted friends and family.

To this day we still have no resolution on the question and we have more and more Americans who fall into highly questionable status on the eligibility.

It's going to just end up like the Oath of Renunciation and Allegiance where the words have been rendered totally meaningless and naturalizing Americans' first act as Americans is to be allowed to take an oath in bad faith.

But I am amazed that people think that the fighting has been so much worse this year over Trump. There have always been fights on this blog over all sorts of things - and they have been as nasty, if not worse, than the fights this election cycle.

This just happened to my friend. She was trying to save money and bought some curtains off etsy. She either owed money before she could accept them or she received a 1099 for her troubles. Or both. This happened a month or so ago so I don't remember exactly what happened.
It was Canada charging some import tax.

Posted by: CaliGirl at November 04, 2016 11:22 PM (Q5Ymk)

There really is a tiny number of products remaining with actual import duties or quotas, coming into Canada. But all out of country purchases (same as in-country purchases, neither more nor less) are subject to GST or HST. GST is the Federal Goods and Services Tax, and is a sort of value-added tax. I have to charge it on my services for work. HST is "Harmonized Sales Tax", and for those Provinces which have/had their own Provincial Sales Tax, the HST enabled them to blend GST with their existing tax, one single fee to the consumer, and the two levels of government split the revenue based on the relative rates.

Point is, there is one charge by government, just one. Not many. So the act of collecting that tax, the so-called "brokerage" is totally trivial. Cash registers do it automatically. The Post Office (Canada Post Corporation) charges a flat $15 fee for "brokerage" and probably part of that is for the cost of having an employee look up the goods in question to ensure that they are not one of the few remaining items with quotas or import duties.

UPS charges a percentage rate on the value of the goods, and it is exceedingly high, for what little value they add. And of course, if you complain, they spin it as being caused by "the government".

Never, never use UPS for cross-border shipments, even gifts. Post office is the best choice.

It wasn't the tax, which is just a sales tax. It's the usurious charges claimed by UPS for collecting that tax, which can vastly exceed the value of the tax collected.

And they should have carried the jerseys home on the plane, because they likely could have brought them into Canada tax-free, because $300 basic personal exemption for 48-hour trip away.

I don't know 'bout all that, but I know that the Colt Lightweight Commander in God's Own .45 ACP is the best pistol configuration under the sun.

And that there is no better revolver than the Smith & Wesson Model 27-2 (fancy) or Model 28-2 (plain), in.357 Magnum, in either the 3-1/2" bbl for the M-27, and the 4" bbl., for the M-28.

Or, if you're of an esoteric bent, find a vintage Model 27-2 in the rare 5" bbl., and walk with the legends.

And either ketchup or mustard packets work well as reactive targets when stapled to the cardboard backing. Would work on a hardwood backing too, I suppose.

https://tinyurl.com/jgtqfvj

It's by Harper Polling, which I've never heard of, but then again I don't pay a whole lot of attention to polls. There are a couple of links at the end for "toplines" and "crosstabs" which are interesting. The sampling was 49D/41R/10I. I don't know the breakdown of voter registration in PA, but given the results in recent years, it could be accurate.

I liked one question:

Q: Which of the following statements comes closest to your opinion about the remaining few days of the election? Complete torture, I avoid turning on the TV so I don't to see one more political ad. Train wreck, I don't like it, but I can't look away. This is the most exciting election in years, I'm part of a movement.

My 2cents, (an I'm an admitted Luddite in these matters)....but it seems like cyberwar is a MAD scenario. Because of nukes, AKA Old School MAD, if nothin else.

Completely wreckin a country's infrastructure electronically, would lead to millions of deaths..(albeit more slowly than Thermo style)...An an end to the targeted country/culture as we know it.....

Wouldn't the target retaliate Massively with whatever means available....if for nothing else, as a Fuck You?

An escalating scenario follows the logic of MAD (worst outcome)..
When applied to cyberwar IMO.....

Target Beijing's grid, they target D.C.....and so on....rampin it up until the missiles fly as a last resort.

I reckon that's why quantum computing and legit ballistic missile defense should be priority one.

The arms race never, ever stops.....better to have it and not need it, etc...

Or did it only remove US taxes / duties / fees, but leave Mexican and Canadian ones in place?

....hmmm...

Posted by: Harry Paratestes at November 04, 2016 11:43 PM (cJrMO)

It removed nearly all taxes and tariffs applied specifically to goods originating from outside a country withing NAFTA. There are a few classes of goods that may still have tariffs or outright bans on import.

I can tell you that right now, for example, there is a bullshit "anti-dumping tariff" applied to U.S. made sheetrock being imported into Western Canada. There's a huge demand right now, because of the rebuilding of the fire-damaged city of Ft. MacMurray. And the one sheetrock plant in Ontario is running flat-out, and can't meet demand. But greed is greed. And sleaxy fucking Liberals are sleazy fucking Liberals.

But for me as a consumer, GST applies equally to the made-in-Canada socks I buy as it does to made-in-USA socks that I buy. So, not discriminatory.

Posted by: Harry Paratestes at November 05, 2016 12:04 AM (cJrMO)

GST is Federal. Applies nation-wide. HST (harmonized sales tax) applies in those Provinces which had their own pre-existing sales tax, and chose to "blend" it with GST so that there is only one tax charged at the till. Some Provinces, notably B.C. refused for a long time to "harmonize", and therefore had two taxes at the till. B.C. has now gone "harmonized", I think. But I don't go there much any more, although I was born and raised there (in the same town where Alan Young, Wilbur of Mr. Ed fame, spent many of his childhood years). I don't know if there are any remaining holdouts.

I know Arizona, for one, has different sales tax rates in different towns, FFS. Canada's sales tax regime is really pretty damned simple.

419 Interesting. Stupid question -- is that a national sales tax or a province tax?
• Some provinces have no sales tax so they just charge the federal GST (VAT-style tax) on certain items.
• Some provinces have a provincial sales tax of their own and charge it and then charge the federal GST separately.
• And some provinces that used to have a separate PST have done a deal with the feds where they combined the PST and the GST into a single tax charged on your bill; and they and the feds split it.

The mixed tax was to be called the Blended Sales Tax at first but they changed it when it was obvious that we peons calling it the BST or outright calling it the Bullshit Tax was going to be a political act. Ontario's is called the HST for Harmonized Sales Tax.

That might have been too large for the postal system. But UPS is far from being upfront about their usurious "brokerage" (i.e. ass-raping) charges.

How could you guys have known that in advance? And how could the recipients have known in advance?

If anyone needs to be ass-raped in a class-action lawsuit, UPS would be a fine target.

449 Now, see, I feel like when a company has been told many times that their coffee is too hot, and that it is in fact so hot that when handed to someone it starts to burn their fingers so much they have to set it down immediately,

That's not true. They served their coffee at 180° - 185°. That is not so hot that someone has to put the coffee cup down. That is a good temperature for coffee, especially commercial coffee that most people are taking out and might not be drinking for a little bit.

(and when you're seated in a car that might well be right between your legs) at which point it spills and burns them damn near to the bone, then you have a case on merit.

But that is also not what happened. She put the coffee in between her legs - it was a styrofoam cup and anyone who has ever held a styrofoam cup knows that they are not the sturdiest of cups - and took the lid off to put sugar or cream or whatever in ...TOOK THE LID OFF. ANd the car was not parked but had just pulled out of the drive thru, so chances are 85% sure that it was moving, even though the old bitty and her grandson claimed that it wasn't ... sure ...

And when you in fact are only asking the company to pick up the expenses your insurance company didn't cover, I don't think you're being greedy, either.

I don't remember the specifics, but the jury did find that the coffee McDonalds served was x degrees hotter than "normal".

185 actually sounds right. IIRC, 160 is the standard.

I don't know. I mean the $14k (or whatever) in medical bills may not have been totally unreasonable under our absurd tort system, but the punitive damages were what were so absurd.

That's why I posted the temperatures for my water use at home. 160° for coffee is not hot enough to serve, commercially. Especially not for coffee that people are taking out. For coffee that comes in an open cup to be drank at the table 170° is a good temperature but for take out coffee 180° is where it should be. The people who like lukewarm coffee can always let theirs cool. The people who like hot coffee don't have that option.

Posted by: buzzion at November 05, 2016 12:38 AM (bMG0w)

I guess it's just because I'm a youngin -- the oldest car I've ever owned / driven was a '99. And it had cupholders, albeit little shitty Japanese style cupholders. Not like my '09, which has cup holders big enough to hold a 40 oz.

497 Ridiculous lawsuits?

We had one here where a guy was out on his riding lawnmower and backed up and ran over a little boy that his wife was looking after at her non-licensed daycare center.

Family of little boy sued the man and wife, the riding mower manufacturer and Lowes. The riding mower had originally been sold at Lowes, but the guy bought it used from someone who had modified it. Their argument was that the mower blades should have disengaged automatically when he backed up. One problem, that feature didn't exist when it was built.

Goes to trial, the jury goes to deliberate, the family decides at this point to drop the husband and wife as defendants, leaving just the manufacturer and Lowes as the defendants. Jury decides the family deserves something, so they award the $6M to them.

So lucky for us business owners that this area has some of the most generous juries in the state.

498 Years ago, I sued a former colleague over a small-ish unrepaid personal loan...

After I won in small-claims court, I still wasn't being repaid, then I brokered my judgement with a law firm... I made out like a bandit in the end!

I assraped a former friend, and when I occasionally run into him even now, he still apologises! Half of me gloats, the other half feels guilty...

Can't people just scroll the fuck past whatever is bothering them??

I can see banning people for something that could get ace in trouble, or being too vulgar, or full on trolling like MUMR, etc....but honestly, even the so-called personal attacks...seriously, it's a fucking comment section on a blog. Sticks and stones, for crying out loud.

506 My last car, a 1991 Toyota Corolla, had two ashtrays, one in the front of the console for the front seats and one at the back of the console for the back seats.

It only had two cupholders, a double spring-loaded ring that pulled out underneath the front ashtray. So if you were the driver or the front passenger, you could either smoke or drink, but not both at the same time. There were no cupholders for the backseat passengers. But they could smoke, at least.

My current car, a 2014 Mazda 5, seats six and has six permanent cupholders, but no ashtrays at all. I don't exactly consider that progress. It's like the pendulum swung all the way in one direction.

Because Disgust is used by so many sites, Disgust also has stalkers. I know about Disgust stalkers, I had one for a short while, going so far as to make my commenting history 'private'. The stalker then got bored because it couldn't follow me around and, when I reset my comment history to 'public', the stalker was no longer there.

I hate Disgust for the way the comments are embedded. A comment is made, then there can be hundreds of comments on that 'conversation' which I don't care to follow, forcing me to hit 'load more comments' 10 or 15 times just to get past it.

I also have been banned at sites (looking at you Gateway Pundit) because of my Disgust avatar.

I like linear comment threads, like here, not the embedded crap. I've tried to read some Reddit pages linked here but they're just hot, unreadable messes.

Back in the day, when dashboards were metal, the inside of bottom-hinged glove compartment doors had little embossed circles that looked like they were supposed to be cupholders. In practice, they didn't even stabilize a milk-shake when you wre parked at the drive-in.

He got into two separate dustups with other commenters in a relatively short period of time on the ONT. And, in both case, the mods asked him to drop it, but he kept going.

They will probably show up as a "new" feature on the '18 Lincoln MkWhatever, and Jason McKnockity will smugly flip it open to let the smug circulate. Smugly.

Nothing about the mechanical condition,etc, just cupholders.

He certainly could latch on to another commenter during cage-match arguments here sometimes, but I never worried about it too much. He chided me on my verbosity sometimes, which was both 1) justified, and 2) sort of dick-ish at the same time.

575 I had an Alfa that had a self-lighter: you put the cigarette Correct-End-Down in the socket next to you in the center console, pushed down on its outer rim, and when it clicked the cigarette was lit. No chance to drop the hot short-handled element under the seat or in your lap. That's important if you wear two-vent sharkskin suits of Milanese 120's.

But it would only handle about a 34-ring cigar. On a tractor, that heating element is still officially called a "cigar lighter."

591 Big trucks still had the side vent windows for many years. My '97 F-700 (well, they did away with the numbers and just call it F-Series, with a class number. Class 6 and 7 are the 600/650 and 700/750).

Anyway, it has the side windows. We sold (at my my father's insistence) the other one, an '86 F-150 to another local guy who was always borrowing it. His idiot son burned the thing up a few weeks ago. That boy has always been destructive. How he did it we don't know, but we're all sure he did something stupid. And his father thinks he the greatest thing ever.

That really pissed me off because I'd done a lot of work on that truck and had it running like a top.

In theory, you're right. But if you and I start going at it, each of us saying mean things to each other, neither willing to back down, and both of us getting more insulting in our comments, well, pretty soon it gets unpleasant for the other commenters who are just trying to kick back and shoot the shit. So, in that case, a mod would probably tell both of us to knock it off. And, if either or both of us decides that our little spat is too important to drop, the mod in question is going to take the next step.

As I noted earlier today when someone else brought her up, I was pretty astonished at Y-not's diligence in pursuing a Chechen-like vendetta following the primary to support allies/punish opponents of a certain elected official from TX. It was just moving from cringe-worthy to unwittingly funny and self-parodic when she stopped.


My negative assessment of our prospects rests mostly on other things, but one thing that reinforces it is to see how fundamentally unserious even generally right-thinking and very engaged people are - as evidenced by much flouncing and drama here over You Know Who.


We didn't get where we are solely because of Ayres ampersand Co., the Dems, and compliant morally narcissistic uninformed NPR sheep.

600 A dealer told me that vent windows went away because of JD Power initial-quality surveys. People perceived the vent-window sound as poor cabin sealing. Bought a new Cherk in 94 and insisted, so they sent it away to another dealership to have the windows changed out, and just about made us sign an affidavit that we wouldn't complain on a survey!

Only one company had a really good passive ventilation system, with cowl vents and an exhaust vent in the tail light, so that air would flow with the fans off. I wonder if anyone here would know what company that might have been.

Once GM started the business of having a fan on "low" when you had it turned to "off," the writing was on the wall for vent windows and vent doors.

615 That "easy-break-in" feature of vent windows was not a total curse. If you'd locked your own key inside, for instance...

The downside in olden times was that the rubber seal deteriorated, and then never really closed right. It wasn't too hard to change the cat-whisker tracks for the main windows, but once that vent seal was shot, you usually had to just live with it.

But I liked them just the same.

And they still can't get the dimmer switch right! My '97 Suburban has it so you pull the lever towards you to switch beams. Pull for bright, pull again for dim. The '08, you have to push for bright, pull for dim, but if you pull back too far, it flashes the brights (supposedly a passing warning signal). The pull, pull style is easier to get used to.

One problem with floor-mounted dimmer switches is that they tended to die early from corrosion induced by salt-laden slush dripped on them by the driver's foot in winter conditions.

I had a '56 Cadillac once that had a wonderbar (automatic tuning) radio with a toe switch of the floorboard that would make the tuner seek a new station. You could really get people going with that. Say loudly "change", and tap the toe button stealthily. Your passenger tries it, no worky. "You didn't hold your mouth right." Great fun.

637 I met the hate-of-my-life by fixing the Vac-U-Matic shift on her Mercedes. When you pulled up on the column-mounted shifter, a vacuum servo disengaged the clutch, you chose your gear, let go and let her rip. Needless to say, adjusting the "slip" could get a tad tetchy.

I later found out that Packard and Buick had this feature many years before. And in the same way that some people would "ride" a clutch pedal, and even today will lightly ride the brake on an automatic, there were drivers who would diddle one finger on that shifter and use up the clutch lining in no time.

That was commonplace in the '60's. Ford Mustang and Mercury Cougar had them, and a wiper switch was incorporated into the pedal, too.

And a simple rubber-bulb gadget, feeding windshield washers from a vinyl water bag was a very-popular accessory until built-in washers became the norm.

VW's "Automatic Stickshift" was much the same deal, with a vacuum clutch controlled by a microswitch in the shift stick, plus a torque converter (!) and a three-speed, not four-speed transmission. VW fans tend to hate the thing, but my late uncle Leo, who had had his left knee fused because of arthritis, could not drive a standard shift, and bought a '68 VW with the Automatic Stickshift the year it came out. Traded in his '52 Chev Powerglide, he did. And he loved that car.

645 Marvel Mystery Oil was invented for "top oilers," which many big engines used to have. Originally there were oil cups with individual valves, but later a little pump and reservoir pumped a little oil to the valve guides just before starting. Before miraculous additives, this was a great thing, as "scuffing" used to be a big wear issue. The Marvel, of course, was formulated to smell good as it burned off.

I'm still a believer: when approaching an engine that has not turned over in a while, I'll pull the plugs and squirt a little in there. And then, I often have to pull the plugs again and clean them after it fires, but hey. It's like giving a horse a sugar cube before you mount up. For engines that may actually have rust in the bores, or stuck rings, ATF is often recommended for this. It does not smell as good.

Yeah. I have had cars with vacuum wipers. They were pretty well universal on most North American cars until the early '50's, and persisted on some cheaper lines into the '60's. Electric wipers were a luxury feature, optional at extra cost.

And since they ran on engine vacuum, which drops to near-zero when the engine is working hard, your wipers would usually quit, or slow to to a pitiful crawl when ascending a steep hill. So the manufacturers adopted vacuum reservoirs, and vacuum booster fuel pumps, and even electric vacuum booster pumps to remedy that flaw, despite the fact that a simple electric motor on the wipers themselves was the obvious solution. Rube Goldberg would be proud...

652 Early electric wiper drives were doubtlessly designed by Rube Goldberg!
The "beauty" of the vacuum "motors" was that there was one on each arm. Electric motors being expensive, there were these awful linkages. And of course it was assumed that it would ever be thus. And everything electrical was assumed to be relatively short-lived and unreliable, unlike this World of The Future we're in now, heh. Funny thing, just about the time everybody dropped vacuum wipers, they lost the bowden-cables for heaters and vents and used vacuum to control that. And the hoses got old and leaked, and you couldn't get to them anymore, and then...

We had air-powered wipers on several trucks, and liked them. Naturally, they were only there because you were already pumping and storing air, for the brakes. Best setup is on the army truck, which has air motors on the swing-away windshield frame, and a little handle on the back of each one just in case. Combat redundant.

Yep. The Flxible coach has air wipers, and they work fine. Air or vacuum, or hydraulics are well-suited for making reciprocating motion. Problem with vacuum is it's a "by-product" of engine operation, and is not constantly on tap.

I've been having an adventure with replacing a refrig evaporator motor. I ordered a knockoff part for the exact part called for by Kitchenaid, based on model # etc., and it is the same dimensions as the OEM part they specified. $70 vs $16 delivered.

So I pull the old part, and the two ain't the same. Even if I had paid ~5X for the OEM part it still wouldn't have fit properly. Sigh. So I cleaned up the old part and put it back in. It is failing (noisy), but not dead yet. I was being proactive for once. The part is over 20 years old, and has run almost continuously for that whole time. Not bad, really. But the rotor is showing its years.

So now on Monday I get the pleasure of getting on the phone with Kitchenaid to find out why they recommend the wrong freakin' part. And trying to return the part I ordered.

713 I can't read comments from Instapundit or Weaselzippers anymore.

Between disqus and facechimp, half the world's comment sections run on Hillary-ware.

Thank God for minx 0.7 alpha, still, and for always, better than all the rest of that updinging reply-threading fascist bullshit put together.

715 Is any other commentator having problems pulling up the comments sections that run on discus. I can't read comments from Instapundit or Weaselzippers anymore.

Posted by: rabidfox


I've always had problems with Disqus hanging, on multiple sites. Disqus just sucks. Compared to minx, it has some nice concepts, but what good is it if it only works 50% of the time?

Just stay here, where minx works as designed.

717 Rupert, I agree that Ace morons are more entertaining but both Instapundit and Weaselzippers have articles that Ace doesn't and some of their commentators are interesting as well. I always end up at Ace, but you people generally have already made all the comments I'd have made anyway so I just read the threads.

Posted by: rabidfox at November 05, 2016 03:55 AM (EW9tX)

718 some of their commentators are interesting as well

Any interesting commentatoritianites from other sites should be persuaded via chloroform and unsheathed sharp metal blades to post their interesting comments at the only real comment section left on the Internet.

720 I just checked Instapundit, comments come up fine. Are you running any script blockers like Noscript or uMatrix?

Posted by: Anon Y. Mous at November 05, 2016 04:05 AM (R+30W)

721 Anon, not that I know of. I AM running ad blocker, though.

Posted by: rabidfox at November 05, 2016 04:09 AM (EW9tX)

722 I run an adblocker as well, so that shouldn't be a problem. I know if you block the wrong script, disqus won't load, but if you aren't running a script blocker, then I don't know what it might be. Like I said, I just checked now and they do work for me at the moment.

Then you don't get it at all. Venial, stupid and without a thought of anyone but themselves as "real" humans with rights, feelings or boundaries. In a nutshell, your average liberal idiot.

Simple, yes, right on down to stupid, but not bizarre in the least.

729 Plato said that people who ignore politics will be ruled by their inferiors. These scolds and halfwits have spent a few decades building the conventional wisdom.

We have a chance to turn around the culture. Reverse a number of policies that are not sustainable (to use a word they've wore out).

The best work we can do as conservative / libertarians, will get more thoughtless acquiescence then ever gratitude. But hey thanks does not drive us.

734 Good Morning. Woke up a 3 AM central. It seems like I get one really good nights sleep each week and then it's more like a 4 hour nap.

Supposed to be a great day here in No. Ill. Some yard work to do and some beer to be drunk (drinked? dranked?) for the Cubs victory. I had DVR'd the repeat of the game on MLB. I missed some of it that night.

738 "I have had home brewed wine, never beer."

This is a first for me.

So of course I had to go get some Grolsch in the flip top bottles, so I have something to put the beer in.

I sort of feel like Flounder in Animal House.

Could go good.
Could go bad.

Fingers crossed on the no trips back out. Anytime I do a project like that it's at least 3 more to the hardware store. Lucky for me there is an ACE Hardware store 5 minutes away.

746 Back in the day, when dashboards were metal, the inside of bottom-hinged glove compartment doors had little embossed circles that looked like they were supposed to be cupholders. In practice, they didn't even stabilize a milk-shake when you wre parked at the drive-in.

And thus the origin of the phrase "I'll drink your milkshake."

And now you have "the rest of the story". :-)

751 It is our deep hope that our failings do not deflect from the pervasive issues discussed in the piece, and that reporting on sexual assault cases ultimately results in campus policies that better protect our students.

Translation: "We published our defamation according to the hallowed, time honored journalistic tradition of 'fake but accurate'. Our hearts were in the right place, so please forgive our lies".
