Overnight Open Thread (9 Dec 2016)

John Glenn's combat nickname was "Old Magnet Ass" for all the right reasons. Another one of my childhood heroes, gone. Damn.

Europe

Good luck Europe. 1,500 ISIS Jihadists have quit Middle East to attack Europe.

Fake News

Not a surprise. 80% of students can't tell the difference between real and fake news.

Speaking of fake news, it's not true that Obamacare insures 20 million.

Epic Christmas Music

I discovered this album last Christmas and it is absolutely awesome. If you have Amazon Prime, you can add the album to your playlist for free. It is titled Christmas: Coming Soon - Position Music Orchestral Series Vol. 5.

Idiots

This won't help get folks on your side. Ohio State stabber's name added to list of nonwhites wrongly killed by police.

Meanwhile in Japan

A proposed Japanese Theme Park combines spas and rides to create a 'Spamusement Park'. Oh hell no.

Ice Hockey vs Soccer

Ozzy Man settles it.

Windfall

Man blows $1M on cars, strippers and cocaine after bank glitch gave him unlimited withdrawals. He actually got away with this for two years before catching up to him.

ASW

Funny, about a month ago the press was saying it was Akula II submarines. NATO hunting at least one Oscar II class submarine that is chasing aircraft carriers in the Med. Tune in next week when it'll be a Kilo class submarine.

Heroin

If only we had heroin free zones or something. Heroin deaths surpass gun homicides.

3 From Sexual Privacy to Sexual Police

The 'right to privacy' when it came to the bedroom was the casus belli the Left used to upend social sexual mores and institute contrary values; the 'right to privacy' when it came to sex was never the purpose, but solely the means. Now that the end of upsetting and recombobulating sexual norms has been achieved, 'the right to privacy' when it comes to sexuality can be readily eschewed.

15 One interesting little factoid that stuck with me after reading a first edition, published within 48 ours of Apollo 11's return to Earth, of John Wilford Noble's book We Reach the Moon; there was many families who decided to name their kids after Glenn due to his Mercury mission. One family had to be truly unique however, they named their child Orbit instead of John.

http://tinyurl.com/zcbdq8f

I'm not going to say that Trump wasn't Russia's preference, given Hill-dawg's insistence that we help the poor Syrian jihadists, but seeing liberals act as "patriots" who are concerned about election integrity is just precious.

By the by, I wonder how much of this is an attempt to sway electors from voting for Trump on Dec 19th? Curious the timing, yes?

Why does the EU have a counter-terrorism administration in the first place? Isn't that Islamophobic and racist? They deserve more attacks, just on that score.

Paraphrasing here... John Glenn strapped himself into a seat to fly into outer space. Those who created the rocket, those who had placed Glenn there, then boarded a bus and drove several miles away, taking shelter in a bunker, to protect themselves, from what John Glenn sat atop of.


He might have been a little bit crazy too

94 I actually find it kind of hard to believe that they do not really know where the subs are. I was aboard an aircraft carrier in the Med, abet in1970 but they always knew where the Russians were. Our own subs shadowed them everywhere. If they do really don't know then someone somewhere has not been doing their jobs.
As to reports that Chinese and maybe Russian subs have surfaced in the middle of a battle group undetected, BS. Ever thought that the US knew and let them think that they were undetected.

96 Molly K, I absolutely think your granddaughter should apologize and make it right and that she should not get any presents if she doesn't apologize sincerely.

Assuming she does this, taking away all her presents anyway seems a bit much to me, but without knowing the details (how badly did she humiliate the other student? Were other kids egging her on to do it? Etc) I'm not sure what to say.

114 Man blows $1M on cars, strippers and cocaine after bank glitch gave him unlimited withdrawals. He actually got away with this for two years before catching up to him.

Sooner or later banks catch up to this. I had a minor incident myself. At the bank branch near my home i cashed a personal three party check on Friday, 1 minute before closing, at the drive-through. After I got home I found out that they'd misread the amount and gave me too much cash. I knew that they have to balance out before they leave because my sister had worked at a credit union. So I called right away to tell them. They said to come in Saturday morning and return the extra, which I did. One month later I got a call that I had been given too much money for a check. I told them that I had taken care of it at the time and the manager remembered my calling and bringing it in.

They go through a lot of layers of accountability. If you get the money accidentally and spend it, they will want it back.

She called me at noon crying that her daughter ( my granddaughter) had made fun of a new girl in the class with a disability. Totally out of character for the kid but she still did it. My daughter is making her give up all her presents under the tree tomorrow. They are going to a homeless shelter and she has to hand them over. She will get presents at Grandma's house (mine) if she can reach out and make it right before Christmas. I'm all for it because I grew up with tough love. Mr. K thinks its ridiculous. What say You?
Posted by: Molly k. at December 09, 2016 10:23 PM (ITucM)

I think it's total overkill and doesn't fit the offense. She should have to provide a sincere and acceptable apology to the other girl. Instead of giving her presents to a homeless shelter, why not make her give the girl she insulted one of her presents instead as penance, assuming it's an appropriate gift for the other girl.

And, although I'm not a parent, I'd want to try to get her to express why she did this, and what she thought she was achieving. Introspection might as well begin now, it's the work of a lifetime.

I agree. I'm in favor of discipline but taking all the presents away seems overly harsh. When the punishment is too harsh it can have the opposite of the intended effect.

Colossians 3:20-21: "Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. Fathers, do not exasperate your children, so they won’t become discouraged."

it all boils down to an it ain't all about you thing anyway only if you're taking presents away it refocuses the issue back to the self so i have doubts whether the intended lesson gets learnt is all. but I'm not there and don't know squat really.

That article is itself an example of "fake news" albeit a subtle one. It mixes fact with innuendo. It rightly observes that "sponsored content" is just ads and therefore not trustworthy.

Then it goes on to imply that anything associated with Fox or Trump is suspect.

They do not list all of the leftist deceptions that have occurred.

The author of this article is not really interested in fostering critical thinking. She is just trying to come up with a more subtle way of espousing fake news, via the same informal logical fallacies the left has always employed. Not even sure it's a good idea that this article be linked to.

247 Hi Molly, just catching up on you gdaughter's story.

If the punishment is too harsh (and taking away Christmas for a 7yo is like the ultimate punishment) it may backfire and make her hate the disabled kid for causing it.

The mom should look for a way to the kid to learn empathy, not resentment.

Trump likes what he calls "killers". Nutsachs is full of killers. They are dirty rotten money grubbing, hooker banging, blow snorting, lying cheating SOBs.

Now, if Trump is the Boss, then they will be lying cheating dirty rotten SOBs for the United States. If Trump picks 'em, I think that's what they'll be. If they're AMerica, Fuck Yeah people, I'm good. I don't think Trump is going to pick the ones who globalist, fuck yeah, people.

It was some shit about that was taking away from the true meaning of Christmas and all that. It was the same type of mentality that leads to banning Halloween, because that's Devil worship and all that.

No srsly. I think it was a bad thing. I think teaching kids to believe in myths like Santa helps prepare them to understand the concept of God. I'm not saying that religion is a myth but that it develops faith in the unknown. I have always struggled with that too.

Bebe, who doesn't want to be appreciated for who they are? At first it's great that women are pleased. After a while it becomes empty. You feel like a whore. Leave your money on the dresser before you leave. Code word for price is "roses".
You want and even NEED to be loved for you.
People want what they don't have. F'd up or not, that is how it is.
Grey hair has caught up with me. I am growing more and more invisible to women these days.
Definitely an adjustment. Such is life.
I see guys on here who say women won't give them the time of day. You know what, I know it isn't fair.
Story of my life? I have been that guy who has had his dream woman tell him he's is exactly like the guy they want- but NOT that guy. Second place of the heart is like finishing last.
So again, I am NOT bragging. Yes I am blessed in some ways, but not how I want/need.

340 Speaking of horse faces, the Daily Mail had pictures of the top royals at some diplomatic reception thing. Had Philip, Chuckles, and Willy all duded up in knee breaches and wearing some "hardly ever seen" gold looking garter thing -- the garter of the Order of the Garter.

And I think it's nice how Chuckles always brings his horse with him everywhere he goes. He even put a tiara on the old plug.

On this one episode, the hooker would tell the undercover cop the price of $20. So he'd give her a counter offer of $15. After she agreed to that, he tried for $10. At which point I thought, "Well, now you're just being mean."

345 The WashPost story about Russia trying to influence the election is not only vague when it comes to details, the sources the quote come right out say there's no 'real" evidence of Russian involvement beyond the fact that they would have "preferred" Trump win the election.
So basically, they are engaging in providing grist for the mill, more red meat to fuel endless talking points of "stolen" or "rigged" elections and attaching the taint of illegitimacy to Trump.

Also, John Batchelor had on his show a guest who said that Putin and the Russians would rather have a "strong" opponent that "doesn't talk down to them" than a weak opponent who always lectures them. It's surprising that they wouldn't want a weak adversary like Hillary.

387 TKW does have a valid point.

Having been a liveaboard sailor from '99 to '06, I came to realize that a not insignificant percentage of dates, short or mid term relationships, etc., were not pure of motive.

They may have "liked" me, for the duration of things, but higher-than-you-might-think percentage turned out to be just living out their "Romance Novel Doing It On A Boat" fantasies.

Quite the romantic setting, that. And I was a good host, cook, setter of moods what with dinner served hot, wine served cold, music served as smooth as the CD could pour out the jazz.

And that feeling that TKW described: "just put a $20 on the table." Yep, one does acquire a jaundiced view of things along those lines, soon enough.

I learned to do some real digging into earlier conversations. And cull the home-nesters, furniture collectors, clutter-ers, etc. None of them had the faintest damn interest about life on the water. Just so long as they could have their fling on the water.

Given now that I do plan my retirement aboard a similar, but much larger boat, I'll be well prepared to repel boarder-esses, when required.

Those that know the secret password though, will be piped aboard, with honors!

396 TKW does have a valid point.

Having been a liveaboard sailor from '99 to '06, I came to realize that a not insignificant percentage of dates, short or mid term relationships, etc., were not pure of motive.

They may have "liked" me, for the duration of things, but higher-than-you-might-think percentage turned out to be just living out their "Romance Novel Doing It On A Boat" fantasies.

Quite the romantic setting, that. And I was a good host, cook, setter of moods what with dinner served hot, wine served cold, music served as smooth as the CD could pour out the jazz.

And that feeling that TKW described: "just put a $20 on the table." Yep, one does acquire a jaundiced view of things along those lines, soon enough.

I learned to do some real digging into earlier conversations. And cull the home-nesters, furniture collectors, clutter-ers, etc. None of them had the faintest damn interest about life on the water. Just so long as they could have their fling on the water.

Given now that I do plan my retirement aboard a similar, but much larger boat, I'll be well prepared to repel boarder-esses, when required.

Those that know the secret password though, will be piped aboard, with honors!

Look, I'll be blunt.
I came of age in the 70s, thought sexual freedom was a wonderful thing. As I grew older, I realized that sex without love is just a soul-killer.

I also realized that you can't just make intellectual decisions/contracts because people can't control all of these factors. It's not playing a game when you make a decision that you aren't going to sleep with someone until you share something deeper. I'm not telling you to save yourself until marriage, just have something THERE before getting naked.

Posted by: JoeF. at December 09, 2016 11:50 PM (8HGb7)
------------------------
Let's see. Under Hillary's tenure at State, how did Russia fare?
She started the ridiculous "reset" policy, which was basically a repudiation of what little grief Bush gave the Ruskis for seizing part of Georgia.
Then, without getting anything in return, we cancelled ABM systems in Eastern Europe and pushed through a nuclear arms reduction agreement completely favorable to Russia --- and which they promptly violated. IOW, a typical Democrat "deal" with enemies.

In the meantime the Bitch is selling them uranium rights for contributions to her slush fund while giving them plenty of US secrets and blackmail material from her unsecured server.

The ultimate result of the reset policy was the seizure of the Crimea and the ongoing war in Ukraine.

All in all, I cannot see why Putin would want an Unknown Quantity (Trump) over a known sucker who is easy to buy, blackmail, or bamboozle.
I just can't buy the Russia-wants-Trump line. It makes no sense to me at all.

410 Insomniac, it's a crazy hypothesis, but researchers talk about how men and women have these psychic scents called "pheromones" that help them, you know, get laid.

If that's true, then I think it's perfectly possible some men and women, like you and me, don't have any pheromones to send out. Or maybe at one time we did, but the plumbing failed somewhere in the past. (Some other men and women, of course, have tons of pheromones and are gettin' it all the freakin' time.)

Again, I might not know what I'm talking about. But IMHO it kind of makes sense.

Specific notes and patterns when using a Bosun's Whistle, (which somewhat resembles a small tobacco pipe) specifically to "pipe aboard" the ship's brass, other fleet officers and various civic dignitaries, as they near the top of the gangplank, and prepare to step aboard the ship.

The announcement would be the whistle (about a 3 to 5 second sounding), followed by a P.A. system notice such as: "Commander, Pacific Fleet, Arriving!"

And any sailor worthy of his salt, knows to step onto the deck, smartly return the deck watch's salute, (given, if the arrival is an Officer), then turn to the ship's stern, and to salute the flag found thereon, at once!

Only then does one proceed with their business aboard ship.

Protocol and Tradition. And damn proud to honor it, too.

442 Tillikum, as a fellow lonely-heart type, let me give you some advice.

I'm not any better than you at this or anything; I'm just pointing out some things that I know on a purely logical level to be true. And I hope it helps you.

You meet a girl, and you just instantly like her for no apparent reason at all and are kind of interested in being with her, right? Chemistry. It happens.

Well, just as often as you're thinking it'd be really nice to be with that chick, women who meet you are also thinking it'd be really nice to be with you. It goes both ways.

But, when you meet a girl you like... you sort of try to hide your feelings, don't you? Me, too! Rejection sucks, after all.

And... guess what? Women who are genuinely attracted to you will also try to hide their feelings! It really does work both ways.

I don't really know how to make use of this particular bit of knowledge, but one thing I can tell you... the women who are most open and obvious about wanting to have sex with you are really just interested in having sex with somebody, and it doesn't necessarily have to be you, as far as they're concerned.

Women will sometimes pretend to be really deeply attracted to you when all they actually want is to get laid by somebody, anybody, and they choose you because you're aesthetically pleasing and you seem like an easy target.

The women who actually feel something for you and want a serious relationship with you are much harder to detect.

And, I'm convinced that you will not find them on a dating site or app. Those are just a big waste of time and money for guys like you and me, because women on those sites/apps are not immediately meeting you face-to-face, and so they're not getting that chemistry; they're just deciding whether or not you're worth meeting on purely prejudicial factors.

"Does he really seem hot enough in his pictures? How much money does he make? Oh, so he's, like, religious, huh? Wait a minute... he didn't vote for Donald Trump, did he? I can't be sure he didn't, so... swipe left!"

It's not so much that they want Trump. It's more that they don't want Obama (and his third term as represented by Hillary).

Recall ... Obama (and Hillary) accused Putin of cheating in his last election.

Obama and Hillary heavily lectured Russia and Putin about their "anti-gay" law passed a few years ago.

Obama was openly supportive of the "protesters" in the Ukraine, which many think was a US govt (namely state department) & EU-backed endeavor to get Ukraine to be more friendly with the EU and less friendly with Russia.

Obama has continued Bush's push for "regime changes" around the world -- notably the disastrous Arab Spring and the ill fated Libya adventure.

In Putin's mind and the Russian psyche, (real or imagined), Russia is on the US's list of countries needing a regime change. That's a very scary proposition if you're Putin.

Then Trump comes along, talking about America and seemingly looking more inward. He calls regime change in the middle east a disaster. He seems uninterested in meddling in other countries affairs...

you can see how the Russians would prefer Trump.

All that being said, i doubt the Russian govt was behind the Podesta hack. But who knows? We probably never will.

I fail to see how it changes anything. The Podesta hack was just that -- Podesta clicked on a phishing email like a fucking idiot and his private thoughts got released to the world. He has no one to blame but himself.

453 It seems crazy to offer old-fashioned ways as a solution to modern problems, but is it really? Getting to know someone before actually getting naked with them, I mean.

Maybe the right woman would find that refreshing.

Posted by: Miley, Duchess of the DSR at December 10, 2016 12:31 AM (tHwdc)

454 Tillikum, as a fellow lonely-heart type, let me give you some advice.

I'm not any better than you at this or anything; I'm just pointing out some things that I know on a purely logical level to be true. And I hope it helps you.

You meet a girl, and you just instantly like her for no apparent reason at all and are kind of interested in being with her, right? Chemistry. It happens.

Well, just as often as you're thinking it'd be really nice to be with that chick, women who meet you are also thinking it'd be really nice to be with you. It goes both ways.

But, when you meet a girl you like... you sort of try to hide your feelings, don't you? Me, too! Rejection sucks, after all.

And... guess what? Women who are genuinely attracted to you will also try to hide their feelings! It really does work both ways.

I don't really know how to make use of this particular bit of knowledge, but one thing I can tell you... the women who are most open and obvious about wanting to have sex with you are really just interested in having sex with somebody, and it doesn't necessarily have to be you, as far as they're concerned.

Women will sometimes pretend to be really deeply attracted to you when all they actually want is to get laid by somebody, anybody, and they choose you because you're aesthetically pleasing and you seem like an easy target.

The women who actually feel something for you and want a serious relationship with you are much harder to detect.

And, I'm convinced that you will not find them on a dating site or app. Those are just a big waste of time and money for guys like you and me, because women on those sites/apps are not immediately meeting you face-to-face, and so they're not getting that chemistry; they're just deciding whether or not you're worth meeting on purely prejudicial factors.

"Does he really seem hot enough in his pictures? How much money does he make? Oh, so he's, like, religious, huh? Wait a minute... he didn't vote for Donald Trump, did he? I can't be sure he didn't, so... swipe left!"

455 I'm trying to remember some damned research about pheromones. There is likely turn-off pheromones as well. It was something about some long winded thing like "immuno-histocompatibility complexes" or something like that. Or related to them.

Anyway, the idea is that some combinations of genes would be the best fit together, and we may have evolved some sort of way to detect that, based on pheromones.

So if someone of the opposite sex sort of turns you off, no chemistry, that might be sort of literally true. The biochemistry doesn't mix.

It also doesn't help that *so many*-- most, if not all, of the people I've known, who have high self-regard? They all also apparently believed it gave them license to be complete self-centered, egotistical assholes and that's it's perfectly okay to hurt other people.

Back in December, 1983, I was a 'constultant' working for a tax group at Citibank (the consultancy was a scam so they didn't have to pay benefits; I was a 'consultant' for over a year). That December, they told me my gig was over. Just the week before, I had received a check in the mail, but not for any of my invoices. Originally, I was going to return the check but that was before the good-bye; I rationalized the check as severance. So I endorsed the check and deposited it into my bank, figuring if CitiBank paid it, tough shit, as I didn't commit any fraud in acquiring the check. The check cleared shortly after. Then about 3 months later, I got a letter in the mail asking for the money back, which I ignored. A few weeks after that, I went to the post office to pick up a registered letter. Once I saw the envelope was from Citibank, I declined to sign for the letter. Never heard from them again. That $3,200 helped pay my income taxes, including the higher FICA tax. I guess it depends on the size of the bank and what their threshold is for writing off checks/lost money.

Posted by: Flyboy at December 10, 2016 12:39 AM (L+dg+)

472 Since for whatever reason this has become a topic in this thread, I'll offer up my own observations:

Whenever I'm in a valley with the ladies, it tends to strongly mirror the times in my life when I'm heavier, less confident, having something about my career that I'm unsure of, and finding excuses to avoid company and neighborhood gatherings.

Whenever things are going better with the ladies, its inevitably during times when I feel better about myself and my circumstances.

Want the attention of one or more ladies? Address as many OTHER factors in your life as you can...eventually one or more ladies will find you. They're really aren't any shortcuts...particularly if you want something that might last awhile.

But the good news is that you don't have to actually *solve* all of the problems you feel badly about. You just have to be actively engaged in *addressing* them--something about that engagement will raise your confidence to the point where you are noticed again. Women want to believe in something--if you don't believe in yourself, that in and of itself is the problem.

There were at least 4000 people in the complex.

He said we can say "Merry Christmas" to each other again, and announced that the CEO of DOW will head some "American Manufacturing Council" he is creating. The guy is an Aussie, and said all the right things.

Some protesters piped up when Betsy Devos was speaking. Security hauled the screaming mimis out of there quick - very nice to see.
There were a few more protesters later, probably five or six total.

He hinted that Ford, if they honor their 'agreement' will be doing something after the first of the year.

My experience has shown me that the majority of people are selfish. If you are cool with that, other people can be fun / amusing.

I can't stand it. Watching people treat others (and myself) as tools to achieve some sort of self-interested gain gets old.

509 336 Insomniac: being older than dirt, I actually remember when Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendricks, and Jim Morrison ODed. I have read about a lot of super talented people -- and not just musicians-- who ODed or went smack out of their minds. I was devastated when Hoffman did it a couple years back.

I have a theory. I suspect that the talent drives the artist -- painter, scientist, writer, musician, what have you -- rather than the opposite. In my day, I have met several actual geniuses, and not one of them was able to communicate or relate to us non-geniuses in any meaningful way. I read a theory somewhere that proposes that the general population of mankind will never be able to surpass the 160 IQ level. There may be a few of them around, but they usually need handlers. A little bit of talent is good. Heaping helpings of talent isn't quite so good.

515 You know what? That sounds doable. Now, where are some places where you would meet women like this? Shooting ranges? Junk yards, looking for parts? Forget about the usual. I don't think this woman will be in a bar or club.

516 Miley, exactly.

I admit I could stand to be a little less particular about women. But women could stand to be a little less particular, too. Too many have all these rules: he's GOT to be wealthy (or at least make more than me), he's GOT to work in a certain industry, he's GOT to be really slim.

Sure, to repeat, there's men who are like this too. They'll all end up lonely too. But that's kind of cold comfort for guys like me who always seem to be hitting walls about meeting women. "Ewww, he's not driving a BMW, I think I'll pass on him..."

--------------------------------
No, not really --- but you do make some good arguments to support that conclusion.

The problem I would have with Trump, if I were Putin, is that he's not a known quantity. And he is not an ideologue.
Putin knows a two-bit leftist like Obama like a book. Hell, he WROTE the book. He knows a corruptocrat like Hillary. If Trump were a true isolationist ideologue like, say, Ron Paul, he would have a handle on that.

But Trump is a wild card. Putin knows that Obama and Hillary don't particularly care about the American interest. He suspects that Trump does. But what will Trump see as that interest and how will it be pursued once he's in office? Putin doesn't quite know. WE don't quite know.

What we do know is that Obama's reign has been very good to Putin. If I were him, I'd wouldn't want a significant change.

I've lived that way - did it for decades. I used to think I was helpless to control my brain, and there was SO MUCH MATERIAL!!! to review.
You actually can change that, but you need to flood your brain with positive distractions to turn that shit off. It's not easy, but it can and must be done.
First of all, remember that you're judging the you of the past, who knew a lot less, had a hell of a lot less on the ball than the present you. Don't beat up that Steve - it's not fair. FORGIVE him his dumbassery, and move on. When you find yourself revisiting past humiliations, immediately change the subject in your mind to something fun or intriguing.
If you aren't looking back and seeing how much better you've gotten, what are you doing with your life?

Posted by: Margarita DeVille at December 10, 2016 12:54 AM (Nox3c)

I think it's important to not underestimate how... paranoid (? not really the right word. maybe insecure is a better word) the Russians are as a people. I've always been fascinated by Russian history. They have always been the insecure backwards hillbillies of Europe. They have not been treated well by either the Europeans or the Asians. They have a deep distrust (and not without reason) of, well, everyone.

So yes, Trump is an unknown to them. But I really truly believe that there are many in Putins inner circle and around the country who think that Obama (and, as an extension, Hillary) are trying to overthrow the Russian government. Whether it's to steal their oil, or their "technology" or whatever... so much of the psyche of the country is driven by this (not totally irrational given their history) fear of outsiders trying to destroy them.

So I don't think they're actively excited about Trump. But I think they are / were actively scared of Obama / Hillary. They have injected so much uncertainty in to foreign affairs that no one really knows WHAT the American left (and European allies) are capable of.

In other words, they'd rather gamble on an unknown like Trump then a known unknown like Hillary.

but again, I don't think the Russian gov't is actively doing anything here... just saying that if we polled Russians and especially those close to Putin that's what I think we'd find.

Just my opinion though.

559 I can see where Putin would prefer Trump.

Putin wants what's best for Russia. Trump wants what's best for America. There's grounds for negotiation.

Putin, through his intelligence sources, knows that Hillary is a sociopath, if not an outright psychopath.

Putin wants what's best for Russia, but that does not include blowing up the world, so he'd prefer to avoid that if possible.

Therefore Trump is the more rational choice.

568 I don't have "down on me" times, unless I'm in an economic slump. Then I just put my head down and muddle through till things get better.

But I realize full well that I have never succeeded at fitting into the "conventional" lifestyle of the suburban hamster wheel denizen. Horizons always are too strong a call, be it long-haul motorcycle touring, sailing over the curvature of the earth to see "what's next", you name it.

Innumerable different, interesting and often dangerous jobs, making a living by my wits, straight commission sales and sole proprietor businesses.

Not exactly the "Mr. Security" that so many women crave to put their minds at ease.

Conversely though, even now, if I could find one to ride along with me, instead of stewing at home and bitching about how long till I'm back home and doing the honey-do list.

Not that I mind the list, especially when it includes me making more sawdust! But still. One to ride the bikes, help trim the sails and just generally go along and enjoy the ride as it unfolds.

That'd put the icing on the cake. It really would.

The whole album seems to have themes related to self-esteem issues. I think at that time John was struggling with overcoming his drug addictions, and suffered from depression as a result.

588 I once read a funny very short story about a man who finally met "the perfect woman," but he lost her.

Why?, he was asked. He responded, "alas, she was looking for the perfect man."

I think there's a lot of truth there. No, no one should have to "settle," but too many men *and* women have impossible standards for a potential partner.

I think Putin has respect for Trump sort of in the same way he had respect for W. He sees him as another alpha male. Someone that loves his country and wants to be a leader that does what's best for it.

Whereas Obama was a weak willed toadie that Putin knew he could roll over pretty easily whenever he wanted and Obama signaled that very heavily.

So you're going to have a lot more respect and likability for someone you see as an equal even if you are in a bit of an adversarial situation at times than some little bitch that will roll over and show you their belly whenever you walk in the room.

610 Bebe, Miley, the advice is keep going. After a while you stop thinking on what you lost every day, and bit by bit the pain lessens.

I had a boss back in the 1990s who was just crazy about strip clubs, I think if he didn't have to work he'd tell his wife he had a job anyway, just so he could hang out at one all day long.

He finally got me to tag along once, to the legendary (and now closed) Fritz's in Bellflower. I lasted about 45 minutes before I finally just made an excuse and got out of there. Thought it was just stupid and boring.

620 Tilikum, there's also a strip club in Norwalk that has a reputation for breaking the California strip club rules on a regular basis.

By CA law, I believe it's actually unlawful for the patrons and the dancers to touch each other at all. But at this club, supposedly the dancing girls will be openly physically affectionate with the male patrons. (And of course as a result, their dancers make bank.)

Not sure if Holiday is even still around, or if it's still like that if it is. But that was their rep.

Thank you sir..
I don't post often (unless it's a snarky thread thread, etc) because someone smarter than me always says, generally, what I'm thinking, but you and the others guys discussing this all seem like really good men, who don't seem to realize we are all in same emotional boat. Seems that we are getting fewer and fewer as the safe-space crowd comes of age and we really are needed in the world. We have to keep on keepin on.

I don't approach women as a conquest in the making, that path always leads ro a cliff for one of us. I approach them as a potential plus to my life who happen to be crazy, wonderful beings who can be a joyous thing.

Sometimes it works, and sometimes I go to my buddies house and we drink scotch and tell lies...one is better than the other, but neither are negative..

There must be some kind of high for guys like that.
When I was 21 me and a few guys went to Le Girls here in AZ. All nude. I felt out of sorts because while the guys around me were excited, I understood the ladies were performing STRICTLY for money. I knew I wasn't going home with any of them, and I did not view them as sluts or hookers. Not one dancer went by without me tipping them.
Women are not vaginas with a support system and I will never view them as such.

Best recipe: 1/2 c fresh lemon juice, 1/2 c fresh lime juice, 4 tsp each lemon and lime zest, 1/4 c sugar, pinch of salt. Stir occasionally and refrigerate for 4-24 hours, strain. Mix equal parts of juice with blue agave tequila and triple sec.

695 Puddleglum and JROD, LOL.

In about 2006, I had a temp job in Irvine where I was assigned to do... nothing. I'm not kidding. Literally nothing. I had a co-worker and my boss kept assigning everything to him, and kept telling *me* I'd have an assignment soon.

On top of that, my co-worker was breezing through the work and also had nothing to do for about half the day. So one day he brought in his PlayStation Personal, and we watched "OfficeSpace" ALL THE WAY THROUGH. (Thankfully, we were far away from the boss' office.) On the company's dime. It was my first time seeing it, I loved it.

It's cheaper than a divorce and you certainly know where you stand. The women strippers who thought men were idiots for paying women to get naked probably don't pull down much cash.

746 Well, last evening I was bemoaning the fact that my $50 Harbor Freight table saw was about to shit the bed. So, this afternoon, I took the motor out of it, and took it apart. As Mike Hammer suggested, problem is bearings. The little 629Z bearing on the commutator end of the motor shaft had seized solid. Then the complete bearing began spinning in the plastic motor frame. Motor itself is fine, shows next to no wear on the commutator. Other end of motor shaft is a helical gear that meshes with a larger one, to give about a 6:1 gear reduction. Four ball bearings in all.

I was able to order three of the bearings on Amazon for about $5 each, on average. The fourth one would have been too long to ship, but it's a 6202Z, which is a common automotive bearing, and I ought to be able to get it locally.

The motor seems to be well-made, and the helical gears had lubricant, and showed no wear I could see. The weak point seems to be the use of plastic to house the commutator end bearing, which is tiny, and spins at maybe 20000 RPM. Plastic makes a lousy heat sink, so if the bearing runs hot, there's no way for it to cool.

The bearing seat has wallowed out a bit. When I reassemble it, I may have to shim the bearing, and will set it in with JB Weld, so the next time it fails, it's done and gone.

I was a young man right around that time. Like I said earlier, I initially enjoyed it but basically outgrew it after a while. I don't think think I've set foot in a strip club since the 21st century started.

Posted by: Tilikum Killer Assault Whale at December 10, 2016 02:36 AM (hVdx9)

The motor shaft has a cooling fan on it, that is supposed to draw cool air past the bearings and armature. But the end cover of the motor blocks any airflow directly past the bearing.

I think the simplest solution is, knowing the weak point is lack of cooling on this crucial bearing, is to duty-cycle it. Run it for 5 minutes; let it cool for ten. Last year, I had it running for an hour at a time, cutting up scrap wood into small pieces for the firepit. No more of that!

I am impressed by how they have managed to cost-engineer stuff down to the price point they do. And have it work at all. The saw table is cast aluminum with a nice finish. The miter gauge track is dovetailed, a feature which my good cast iron saw at home lacks. The main housing is molded plastic, that incorporates many ribs and box sections for rigidity, and succeeds quite well in that respect. The motor armature is wound with heavy wire, and coated with what looks like epoxy resin, and seems to be well-made. The gears must have been preoperly made and heat-treated, because they show negligible wear. The motor has plenty of power, and will rip a 2X6 easily.

The thing about Harbor Freight, and Princess Auto in Canada, which occupies a similar niche, is that they enable one to own a nifty power tool, capable of doing serious work...for a period of time. At a fraction of the cost of a pro-grade tool. For what I am doing here in AJ, I can just mentally sink the cost of the HF tools into "construction expenses." And I did manage to get two sheets of 3/4" plywood cut and set in place to rebuild the trailer floor. Just a 16" by 8 foot strip left to do, and I can make that up from scrap plywood on hand.

Heh. I have the January Blowout sale flyer on my desk as we speak. I got some of those LED work lights/trouble lights/flashlights from Princess Auto back home, and brought two down here. Still working fine on their issue batteries. They beat the old bulb-type flashlights all to Hell.

Trick with both those stores is to shop the sales, and buy as little non-sale stuff as possible, because nearly the entire inventory of the store gets cycled through the sale flyers over the course of a year. The welder I paid $110 for 2 years ago is $87.99 in the January flyer. But I needed it when I bought it.

Not really sure, and if I said what I really think, I'd probably get banned too.
Ace haneed out the keys to the banhammer to everybody not too long ago, and cth got whacked. Unnecessarily, IMO.

Chi, I like Cooth, and miss him here, but his bannination was not capricious. I was here. He'd gotten it into his head that AndyCanuck was Ira, and refused to cease and desist after being cautioned by the Cob in charge. I suspect he would be reinstated if he did a mea culpa and asked to be reinstated, but perhaps he is too stiff-necked to ask.

Pretty sure my late friend was exclusively gay. Women found him very attractive and charming, but he just wasn't into them. He kept his gay life pretty much compartmentalized away from his interactions with straights like me who were his second-tier friends. It was a topic of discussion that never came up. That he was gay was a known fact. Leave it there. "Now, let's talk about the Alfa Romeo Montreal" ( which he had 2 of, at one point)

807 Nah, AOP.
I was here that night also. He is always behind in the post count, and may have not caught up to CBD's warning, but he didn't deserve the hammer.
There are people here tonight that have done and said MUCH worse things, but are still here.

There are more than one posters (again, at least one here tonight) that have been banned, but have worked around it by name & hash changes. Cooth has taken his punishment, issued said mea culpa (to no effect), and could easily be posting now.
But I know the man well - he has too much respect for ace & this place to backdoor his way here.

I figure that if I bug ace & the CoBs enough, they'll either relent or ban me. Either way, my life will go on.

Hope you're enjoying your stay in AJ. Sounds like you're getting some work done. Good for you.

Time to put this to rest.
1. Treating the ONT as his own personal property.
2. 17 month history of accusing other posters of being trolls.
3. Ignoring 2 COB's when told to stop causing trouble.
4. Getting an ONT shut down because of #3
5. Being extra obnoxious to AndyCanuck.

You want your friend back? Fine I can do it. I want two things. An apology to AndyCanuck and a promise never to mention Ira and anything he may or may not have done, ever again.

811 #807- From what I remember he got the warning and refused to back down. Yes he acknowledged it.
Even when it was clear the person was not who he suspected, Cooth said he would not stop. We all have our moments.
Yes I would like to see him reinstated.

815 Look, I really like Cooth, but I had to run his "gauntlet" at one point. By that I mean show how I was not Ira. In light of what he went thru I understand him being concerned, but at some point one does need to back off.
He was warned, acknowledged the warning, and refused to stop.

Well, I'll assume you are who I think you are...
He may or may not be reading right now. ?
His compliance with your demands is totally on him.
But he waited a looong time and has sent his apology along. It's in your hands now.
And I ain't here to defend him - I told him more that once to slow his roll.

But allow me this - you're cool with another poster nastily blasting away at 2 or 3 other long-timers here with ugly personal insults, apologizing, then doing it again a week later? NASTY comments and name calling.

You're cool with a banned commenter coming back in surreptitiously with a new nic (even though his behavior has vastly improved)?

I've seen guys that have been total jerks back within two weeks. If you have a personal thing against cth, well, it is what it is. He didn't deserve the ban is all I'm sayin'

835 "You tell him. If you have the keys, you most likely have his emails."

No need. He's free.

When it comes to other posters I will not remove a ban put on by someone else. I did not ban MWNP so I do not know what happened there.

Several people I have banned have came back with new names and hash's but have modified their behavior enough not to be renamed.

It takes a lot to rile me up and thats the way it should be. I do not ban for light or transients reasons and if someone else gets banned, do not come running to me to unban them.

Also do not come running to me to ban someone. That will not happen.

BTW, I have Ace's permission to open carry. Most others that I know of do not.

Hanging in there, Chi. Got a certified letter from my device cardio. Apparently, the battery in my ICD model has been shown to deplete rapidly, as in going dead within a couple of days (it's supposed to be good for 5 years, less shocks, and mine was implanted in May, 2015). I see the doc on Tuesday to discuss options as I'm a patient who requires the ICD for pacing as well as to deliver shocks. When the P.A. mentioned the pacing bit, I raised my hand. She pulled my records and said it looks like I'm a 'gray area'. So it's up to the doc to decide if I need surgery to replace the battery/unit. Based upon my knowledge of my heart situation, I'm thinking I have a greater than 65% chance that I'll need surgery early in January to fix the battery problem.

It's always sumptin'.

And what's the deal with batteries these days? Galaxy phones exploding and now my ICD battery dying might be the literal death of me.

879 Buddy was a g reat one Chi. An early influence. Kruppa too.

Probably the two guys the had me pulling pots and pans out of the stove drawer and hanging them with wooden spoons.
I must have been very young as I don't remember it. Mom told me.
And we couldn't afford lessons as a kid so the kind of stick work it takes to pull some of that stuff off is beyond me.

895 Ha!
Teej, Mom has told me about strapping on my cowboy outfit & strumming along with Johnny Cash in front of a tiny B&W tv (circa 1970? When did he have a variety show?).

I don't really remember it, but she apparently has a picture. Stashed somewhere along with the pic of me watching the moon landing on the same TV.

My best friend (RIP, Bruce) was friends with Neil Peart. And Lee Greenwood's drummer - Mark something?
Tried to get me to join his band - up front, but I found out after almost a year of trying that I have no talent (still have my old ibanez guitar, though).

Meh - I can carry a tune OK, but when I went to one of their practice sessions, they were playing the theme song from Friends. I walked back upstairs & hung out drinking wine with all the wives.
The world is better off. I stick with singing in the shower.

I think Bruce caught me singing SRV at full volume one day when I thought I was alone. "Dude! You gotta front our band!"

Umm, I can't recite the Lord's Prayer in a public setting without shitting my pants, & I have been saying that since I was 5 - I ain't getting on a stage. Besides, I have no talent - I've been trying to learn play guitar for a year and can't strum a chord.
"No problem! You can play bass!"
(Damn, I miss that man)

If I catch just the right buzz, I'll sing in public. I did once in the smoking lounge at the Atlanta airport and got rave reviews. Sinatra. World on a string - probably my best.

922 "I didn't get into it as its not my hobby line, but a bit of argument about modern artillery upgrades between US and Russian hobbyists. "

Lets just say that Russia is not known for accurate artillery fire. What the lacked in accuracy, they more than made up with the quantity they could deliver on any targeted area.

Thats been changing though. The Russians under Putin have been gaining in that area and can still conduct massive area bombardments if it suits their needs.

The U.S. is still second to none in the accuracy department. With laser guided munitions a 155 round can be put on a 1 meter target. Easily.

There are all kinds of problems faced if we get into a shooting war with Russia. Too many to discuss here.

Posted by: Tim in Illinois at December 10, 2016 06:37 AM (d76uN)

923 Yeah, teej. I have a few friends that have heard me and they say "you would RULE karaoke night" - sure. Only because I threw up in front of everyone.

962 Oh and speaking of jihadis in Europe, did anyone notice that freedom of speech just died in Europe?

Geert Wilders, an elected member of the Dutch parliament, just criminally convicted of "inciting racial discrimination" for advocating an end to Muslim immigration.

Think about that. Not even convicted for "discrimination" --but for "inciting" discrimination. That is, the citizen may be sent to prison for saying something, that to someone else, might encourage them to have an impermissible thought about a group of people.

When they went after Guy Earle in Canada a couple years ago with a Human Rights Commission charge in Canada, a comedian for F's sake, for making lesbian jokes to a fat, female heckler with a bad haircut, I thought the world had gone off the rails.

Oh and they fined the sh*t out him, ruined his career and effectively put a self-censor in the heads of every Canadian comedian ever since.

Then we've had all the attempts to equate words with physical violence, and the insane repetition of the most moronic, dangerous, Orwellian idea I've heard in my lifetime of "hate speech." Which is now supposed to set the "boundaries of responsible speech" --which of course negates the core concept of freedom of thought, that ideas that make everyone comfortable don't need any legal protection, and only when speakers "offend" someone is there even any need for a legally protected right to speech. But no, with "hate speech" the heckler's veto is now official policy: if someone other than a member of the official cultural Commissariat (i.e. anyone not a TV or Hollywood producer, in a multi million dollar production) makes a film, or says something, that "offends" or "triggers" anyone --well of course that's "hate speech" and they must be shut up as "haters."

And now, we have a criminal conviction for a politician speaking out against an open borders public policy. And now, in Europe, politicians (let alone ordinary citizens) may be fined or jailed for DISAGREEING with the policy of their government on immigration, if they dare to advocate for that position by giving the electorate a reason why they may not want open borders from country x, y or z.

And in a classic display of stray voltage, Angela Merkel comes out in favor of a burka ban. Yay! So she can debate whether she's "too tough on Muslims" when flooding her country with a million Muslims a year, and her brethren in the EU are criminally convicting anyone who might disagree with that.

And... in the UK they have now "banned" ads directed towards children. And of course, "Australian style gun control" has confiscated the firearms of the entire populace.

So much for Europe and the "English speaking world." When it comes to freedom, we're the last one standing.

964 Ted Williams said John Glenn was nuts.

I'd rather put the horsehide 40 rows up in the cheap seats 521 times than ride on a 1963 Atlas.
