Monday Overnight Open Thread) (12/12/16)

In honor of The National Day today.

joebidensleeping.jpg

Yes, it's December 12th, National Ding-A-Ling Day. No word if today was brought to you by Chuck Berry.

Oh, that kind of ding-a-ling.

Don't care for this National Day. Wait until tomorrow when it is National Pick A Pathologist Day.


Quotes Of The Day

Quote I

We've waged war on work. We have collectively agreed, stupidly, that work is the enemy. Mike Rowe

Quote II

When I hear somebody sigh, 'Life is hard,' I am always tempted to ask, 'Compared to what?' Sydney J. Harris

Quote III

I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly. Winston Churchill

Speaking of ding-a-ling. If you're headed to the Antarctic, be careful with yours. You don't want Polar Penis.

Cruel winds add to plunging temperatures and threaten to freeze them stiff. Yet so far only unlucky Alex, 26, has been hit by the medical condition, also known as Antarctic Willy.

Alex posted: “We found for some reason I was getting particularly chilly in the nether regions.

“There’s a phenomenon called Polar Penis, which sounds hilarious but as it turns out incredibly unpleasant, and really quite painful and cold, so suffering a bit from this morning.

But, we were promised no math in tonight's ONT.

From Newton’s mechanical calculations to Einstein’s general and special relativity to the baffling indeterminacy of quantum mechanics, the discipline of physics has become increasingly arcane and complex, and less and less governed by orderly laws. This presents a problem for the layperson, who struggles to understand how Newtonian physics, with its predictable observations of physical forces, relates to the parallax and paradox of later discoveries. “If you don’t already know physics,” says physicist Dominic Walliman in the video above, it’s difficult sometimes to see how all of these different subjects are related to each other.” So Walliman has provided a helpful visual aid: an animated video map showing the connections between classical physics, quantum physics, and relativity


Bob Dylan accepted the Nobel Prize for Literature over the weekend.

I’m sorry I can’t be with you in person, but please know that I am most definitely with you in spirit and honored to be receiving such a prestigious prize. Being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature is something I never could have imagined or seen coming. From an early age, I’ve been familiar with and reading and absorbing the works of those who were deemed worthy of such a distinction: Kipling, Shaw, Thomas Mann, Pearl Buck, Albert Camus, Hemingway. These giants of literature whose works are taught in the schoolroom, housed in libraries around the world and spoken of in reverent tones have always made a deep impression. That I now join the names on such a list is truly beyond words

Rumor has it that there are some damn fine Morons who know how to get around in the kitchen. So, you know your way around the kitchen? How are you in the shipping and handling department?

Wait for cookies to cool completely before you pack them. You don’t want to ruin their texture or encourage bacterial growth.

Pack the cookies in an airtight container, and make sure there’s plenty of padding in your package so they don’t bounce around and break.

Certain types of cookies are better for shipping than others. Flakey and fragile cookies like macarons, Florentines, and cream-filled sandwich cookies will probably be damaged in transit no matter what. Opt for sturdier cookies like chocolate chip, sugar, and gingerbread.

Please, thank you, excuse me.Just some basic words in your vocabulary. However, it appears that they are not common words. The need for manners.

Has the death penalty gone to high tech? Is there a way to execute someone painlessly? Was the recent Alabama execution botched?

The object of the protocol is to create a painless execution and that is not what we saw last night,” she continued. Smith also reportedly reacted to “consciousness tests” performed by a guard long past the point when he should have been conscious.

The ONT has a couple of ideas including calibers .32-.44.

18 You want fake news? I got your fake news right here. From today's Des Moines Register :

"A decline in projected state tax revenue will force $100 million in spending cuts for the current state fiscal year"

Four paragraphs later you get :

"The current state budget, for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2017, is now projected to have about $7.2 billion in revenue. That's up 4.2 percent compared with the past state fiscal year, but it represents a decline of $96.2 million compared with a revenue forecast issued in October."

So, a 4.2% increase in spending is reported as a $100M spending cut.

72 So, a 4.2% increase in spending is reported as a $100M spending cut.

#HowYouGotTrump


IIRC many government budgets have automatic increases built in, so a spending cut actually means that it is going up, but not as much as planned. A spending freeze means that it will go up the amount that is built in. I don't think there is any such thing as an actual cut in a budget.

When I used to own a jetski, my trailer would get a little floaty sometimes. Boat trailers are usually pretty light, and the wheels obviously float.

My guess would be that the trailer came off the ball, flipped sideways'ish, and the tire caused it to float a little? Not sure.

Plus I'm not great at baking anyway so I played it safe and only sent fudge and store bought stuff like granola bars, popcorn, jerky, and those *fruit* snacks. I always cheated a bit, as the SA group wanted folks to send weekly letters as well and I just couldn't couldn't bear to prattle on too often about my boring middle age life with horses and figured I shouldn't talk politics so I'd just send a letter with the monthly well stuffed box. Then I got really lazy and went to only donating to the org.

But in another piece, Jeff wrote that he would "love to slug a Trump supporter," right before also admitting he hasn't hit anyone since he was 13.

I guess I'm getting better because instead of getting angry and going apeshit, I laughed this off. I personally would LOVE to see Jeff try slugging a Trump supporter. He'd get his head, arms, legs, and genitals handed back to him.

And the nippy frost starts turning your sharts
Into stinking frozen chunks of ice!

Polar penis, when your second head's swelling up in pain
While you worry at night under the Southern Lights
Will your tallywacker start working right again?

You know something's wrong with your glans,
As your Johnson freezes in your hands.
And when you say
"Yeeow! It hurts to pee today!"
You're only sayin'
"I've had enough polar penis!
Polar penis, go 'way!"

167 Nice ONT! Thanks MisHum. Now to go off topic... both of my kids are artistic. Both can draw and the 10 almost 11 yr old girl spawn is very interested in art. I introduced her to that goofy U.N. grains of rice game where she can guess the artist of a famous painting and when she gets one right 10 grains of rice are donated to starving kids in Africa or something. She did okay and was enjoying the art and figuring out which artist by the style of the work.
Are there any books available for her age that focus on famous artists or artwork that can explain the difference between the style if Van Gogh and da Vinci for instance or just in general the differences between pointillism and impressionism and realism? Something that has plenty of pictures that show the difference? Any suggestions would be welcome.

Could be a bit creepy though. During the French Revolution, witnesses said they saw people's eyes blinking and mouth moving after the head fell in the basket.

BTW, the last execution in France by guillotine happened later than I thought - in 1977, a convicted murderer with the very non-French name of Hamida Djandoubi was the last person to meet his end via the National Razor.

209 The object of the protocol is to create a painless execution

The idea that murderers shoulkd be given a painless execution has got to be one of the dumbest ideas of all time. In life, the average person stands a good chance of having an excruciatingly painful death, whether in in a accident, suffering from some awful illness, or having had the bad luck of being the target of one of these despicable murdering scum.

But, interestingly, about the only people in society who are guaranteed a quick and painless death are the scumbags who murder and torture others. And, somehow, people are able to argue for the painless deaths for these vile, evil people without being tossed right out of the room.

If there is anyone in society who deserves to be insured of a slow, painful death it's the scumbags who forced others to endure just that. Anything else is totally immoral and insane.

I would argue that I do not really care whether it is painless or not. The point of the death penalty, in my view, is to show society that justice is done. Quick and painless is fine.

To give an example, when the Romans crucified pirates, was the point the execution? Or to warn anyone thinking of engaging in piracy what would happen? Same with the British with hanging. Part of it was also leaving the bodies as a warning as well. Brutal perhaps, but it served the purpose they were going for, deterrence.

And it is quite dangerous....because it's colorless, odorless, is nearly 80% of air anyway.....and when a room fills up with it, there are no warning symptoms before unconsciousness and death.

289 A co-worker hit me up for $5 today - for what I consider a very good cause.

Departments at work put together Thanksgiving baskets for people in need and she was reading thank you notes from people who had received one. One hit her right between the eyes - a woman wrote, "My husband and I appreciated the Thanksgiving basket so much. My sister died of cancer earlier this year. She was a widow and so we inherited her 6 children, including twins. We have 3 of our own and my husband was laid off last month. We're feeling pretty desperate. Thank you for your help."

My co-worker checked out the profile this woman had to complete to get a basket and it read like this"

Boys: ages 14, 3, 6,1 (4)
Girls: ages 1, 3(2), 7, 10 (5)

Imagine that. Taking care of 2 one year olds, 3 three year olds, and 4 other kids, including a teenaged boy, with an unemployed husband. In "regular" large families you don't normally have 4 children under the age of 5! It just seems impossible.

My coworker was asking people for $5. apiece so she could buy the family a gift card for Burlington Coat Factory or Kohls and they could get some warm clothes for the kids.

I'll remember this family next time I think I've got it tough.

311 I can't believe some people find it hard to believe Bob Dylan would have read books by some of the authors he mentioned in his Nobel speech. Dylan was born in 1941, so I'm sure he was exposed to a lot of literature in his school years that kids today wouldn't be. In addition to that, he grew up in Minnesota with it's long , snowy winters. I'm sure he read quite a lot. I would bet that a lot of the English rockers of Dylan's generation were even more well-read.

I had a falling out with them in my early teens and it has always been a concern of mine that I would be out with friends or family, and run into one or some of them.
For the other type which I have read about, snuffing a life is no different than blinking. You just aren't human to them and draw little thought after the fact.

325 There have been many N2 death incidents over the years, and in some cases it may have been suicide. If you spill liquid N2 in an enclosed space, you can drive the O2 out pretty quickly.

Another thing that can get you in trouble is inhaling He to make your voice sound funny. With a lung full of He, it pulls O2 *out* of your blood, lowering blood O2 quickly. You won't know anything is wrong, and BAM! you lose consciousness. And fall and perhaps hit your heard. Which has happened.

Dylan was born in 1941, so I'm sure he was exposed to a lot of literature in his school years that kids today wouldn't be. In addition to that, he grew up in Minnesota with it's long , snowy winters. I'm sure he read quite a lot. I would bet that a lot of the English rockers of Dylan's generation were even more well-read.

I would guess that the number of people opposed to the death penalty and the number of people who are gung ho about the death penalty are roughly equal. Then there are those in the middle who think the death penalty is necessary, but they aren't enthusiastic about it. If the death penalty were to be seen as a blood sport, many of those in the middle would flip to anti death penalty. So, for those that want to see lots of blood and pain, they have to settle for a more humane death penalty if they want it to continue at all.

400 Nitrous oxide is also used to goose engines. You've probably seen "nitrous kits". The stuff breaks down at fairly low temperature, and liberates oxygen. This allows more fuel to be burned.

The increased combustion temperatures can also do serious damage to the pistons and other things.

Watching people load their boats can be fun, too. I was on a ramp at dusk once, talking with a conservation officer that I'd known since high school. There was a truck and trailer in the water when he pulled up, and he said he'd gotten a call about this boater.

Well, here came the boater. He hit the trailer at about 30 mph, launching himself first over the bed, then over the cab of his truck. He spilled out onto the pavement when his boat hit the parking lot, but he wasn't hurt except for some road rash.

Alcohol might have been involved.

I also suspect the problem with "no work" is that no matter what stipend people were given, they would always want more. Nothing would be enough, and even if things like food and housing were free, some would always have more, which would make others envious. Which would mean crime. Which would mean police. So certain people would have to work. Who would decide who works? Who does not work? It's a very groovy hippie concept, which makes no sense, since Clarke was not of that generation. But philosophically, oh yeah, he's there.

Carbon Monoxide is pretty damned toxic. Use Nitrogen instead. Less hazard for the executioner.

Actually, it might be more of a hazard for the executioner. Since it cannot be detected by human senses (being that we're in an 80% concentration all the time), it'd be pretty easy to go in to remove the corpse and inadvertently join him.

475 Last I saw Wilders' party in Holland was polling at the top position (would have largest number of seats in parliament if election held "today"), having gained substantially over the course of his "trial".


I've probably got a better feel for political currents in the Fergana Valley than in the Netherlands, but I'm imagining a Wilders' win would, you know, be a big deal, and fit into a "cascade" model (Brexit, Trump, Eye-talian referendum).

At my crappy part time venue job that' I've had forever, I had a contract labor person ask me "why don't you retire already?"

My assumption was that he wanted me to retire so he could get my job.

1. He is contact labor not an employee
2. They stopped hiring in my department

Was actually highly insulted, since I'm nowhere near retirement age.

Some friends of mine were going out to dinner, and had called me on my cell, so I got off the bus earlier than usual and walked further than usual to get to where they were.

When I got to the restaurant and met them there, I informed them that my dick was numb from that bitterly cold wind blowing through my pants. That was too much information for one of them, and I laughed at his reaction.

it cannot be detected by human senses (being that we're in an 80%
concentration all the time), it'd be pretty easy to go in to remove the
corpse and inadvertently join him."

You can make a Nitrogen chamber safe by dumping Oxygen into the chamber after the execution. Just raise the Oxygen content to 21%. Then open the door.

CO remains toxic at extremely low concentrations.

I think it's that one man has a blank, the rest have live rounds. The idea is that if a rifleman had guilt feelings after the execution, he might console himself with the thought that maybe he fired the blank.


Must've been thought up by someone who's never fired both blank and ball. Or never fired anything. Takes serious self-delusion to convince oneself a ball round is a blank. Might be loud and have a pretty flash, but there's no noticeable recoil with a blank.

In a proper firing squad, the shooters do not load their own rifles.

Good movie sequence of this was The Execution of Eddie Slovak. He was executed in WWII for cowardice on the battlefield.

Of course, the movie was more sympathetic to his side of the story, and made the execution out to be a botched butchery.

But the loading sequence at least, had it right.

Modern firing squad? Laser sighted rifles in five axis, stabilized gimbaled mounts.

Solenoid mounted to triggers.

Press a handle with a deadman's switch to the solenoids into one of the condemned, bound hands.. With about a 20 ft.lb. spring under the button. (Typical M-1911 recoil spring is 19~21 lb. range)

When he lets go, he LETS GO!

This was so that the Roman soldiers never knew if they had really impaled that guy or if it was a fake and everyone was just having a fun laugh.

The incoming Senate Minority Leader told hosts of TV’s CBS This Morning that he is pleased Sen. Mitch McConnell (R.-Ky.) supports calls for a congressional investigation into possible Russian tampering in the 2016 presidential election, but he does want it to become political, like what happened with Benghazi.
“We don’t want this to turn into a Benghazi investigation, which seems at least to many people highly political–this is serious stuff,” said Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D.-N.Y.), who is now the Senate’s number three Democrat, but on Jan. 3 takes over as his party’s Minority Leader, adding, “… when a foreign power tries to influence our election, or damage our economy for that matter.”

688 They do something similar with the electric chair, or did do it. Years ago, I read up on the procedure for fying someone.

They do a double blind thing with the switches. You have two, or maybe three it was, actual switches, and I think it was push button thing. Anyway, you had three switches. Only one would be connected to the contactor that energized the chair. The wiring would go through a wall. Someone would come in and wire one of the switches up, but he would have no idea which wire went to which switch. He would just know he had three switch leads he could hook up. He would wire one, and leave the others be.

The three guys would come in to the switch stations.

Oh, they also use a separate generator. The power companies refuse, and have always refused, to allow their systems to be used for electrocutions. It's a completely isolated system that does the frying.

And it's actually a multi-step process. The initial voltage is 2000V for so many seconds, followed by a 1000V for a few more seconds, then a long period of 250V.

I'm convinced that the state of the art hasn't really advanced much beyond 1900 in psychology. They may have changed
their focus from involuntary commitment and lobotomy to mind-altering drugs, but it still seems more like a social experiment "done for their own good" than a real science.

698 I hate to be a pedant, but psychology and psychiatry are two different, but related fields. Psychologists can't prescribe drugs, psychiatrists can. You have to have MD to prescribe (or dental degree). The former may be "doctors", but they are Ph.D doctors, not MDs. Psychiatrists are MDs who went to medical school, and specialized in psychiatry.

Now, in many cases psychologists will recommend drugs, and communicate to and MD who can actually prescribe them, but they can't do it themselves.

It also displaces oxygen out of the immediate atmosphere and causes people to lose consciousness. Especially those stupidly in the pool when they dump it in. I think there have been deaths from this.

They use nitrogen and/or nitrogen-based foam for underbalanced drilling in some instances (underbalanced meaning the hydrostatic+pump pressure of the drilling fluid is less than formation pressure). Either they bring in big tankers of liquid nitrogen, or have a mess of "genron units" which are basically molecular sieves that are fed pressurized air from huge compressors, and output nitrogen from one port, and oxygen from the other.

They claim there was a closed-door meeting in September where the WH tried to get a bipartisan agreement blaming Russia for the leaks, but McConnell fought it. If the WH was so worried that Russia might rig the election for Trump, why would they, the MSM, and the Hillary campaign go so hard after Trump's "dangerous" claims of election rigging in October?

Just have an exhaust fan in the execution chamber. A bathroom fan would work fine. When the condemned flatlines, wait ten minutes, and then turn on the exhaust fan, and open a vent near the floor of the chamber. Let the fan run a half hour to be sure, and then retrieve the cooling corpse.

I remember and old timer around here used to talk about using hydrogen cyanide as a fumigant in the textile mills. IIRC, he used to talk about these "pills" they'd drop in water buckets -- may have been the same thing as the CA gas chamber.

Anyway, they'd shut the mill up every so often, I think on Saturday nights, and then they'd drop these pullets in water buckets and run like like hell as he told it. It took a while for it build to toxic levels, so it wasn't immediately dangerous, but it would build up and kill all sorts of vermin, including insects.

Again, I don't know if it was cyanide gas or something else.

777 Well, I am off to the rack. Hauled all my broken-up masonry to the dump today. Got under the trailer, and started a job I had been dreading, re-levelling it. So far, easier than I had expected. Put the little floor jack under the I-beam, jack it until the lifting gets real tough, and re-position the concrete pyramid and its pair of wooden wedges. Trailer is still a half-bubble off plumb, but it's getting there. I have to lift a little here, and then a little, there, Because the whole damn thing flexes like Harry Reid's exercise band. I have overcome my fear of getting under it, because I now know the chance of it falling abruptly is damned near zero.

780 Last night, somehow, one of the memes was rats -- and it got me thinking of a little story that actually happened here in Casa de Cthulhu.



The original Casa was built in 1955, but has been remodeled substantially over the years. The Graves family did substantial work in, IIRC, 1986 -- I'm better on the name than the date because the door-knocker still says "Graves". They're the ones that changed it from an L-shaped house to a U-shaped one. Since we bought it in 1997, we've done a whole lot of things to make it our own -- including the kitchen remodel of 2004, which nearly killed me (we fired the contractor and I finished it with a handyman).




Anyway, several years back we found that we had a rat problem. So we called-in experts. I won't bore you with how to find such experts [this is where Chi faints], but we found competent guys and this was their plan:


1. Put anticoagulant bait all over the place. When a rat eats this, they start losing fluids and get very thirsty, so they leave the building to find water.


2. When it seems that all the rats are off finding water and bleeding-out, seal up all the ways rats can get into the building.



3. Collect all the old poison, and put strategic bags of poison where they are (a) likely to be found by rats, and (b) are easy to monitor.

Howdy.



Yeah. A couple of weeks into this, my VPN provider (and, BTW, anyone who EVER uses a public hotspot should absolutely be using VPN) (and, contrariwise, the blog should take care not to ban VPN outputs by IP, as everything is rapidly going virtual) emails me to say, "you now have 114 new IP addresses!"



Mind you, I had been like, "I don't even really know if I'm banned -- I had some stuff disappear one night, but not earlier stuff on the same night....I had some stuff disappear from the next day, but only about 20 minutes after I'd posted it....and not everything -- and I never got a notification that I was banned when I tried to post." So there was a certain confusion whether I'd been banned at all, whether it was rightfully so, whether it was a "timeout" or a real ban, etc.



By the time the VPN guys sent that, however, I was so furious at myself for even appearing to disrespect Ace and CBD that it didn't even rise to the level of a moral quandary -- it was "Begone, foul serpent!!!!"



But I'm enough of a stiff-necked old fart that I ended-up making Ace's life more complicated by trying to work through him and telling him that CBD had banned me instead of that other guy. Because respect means working through the proper channels.

782 Ugh. Poison.

Actually, I have consider the same stuff, and can easily get my hands on some, but I'm just concerned that Tuck would chew on a dying or dead victim.
I'm sure it would be lethal for him.

I have a few traps set now in the utility room & garage. I have to keep changing the bait to get results. Most surprising baits I've found success with are plain old flour & chunks of bread.

You should just get a pup to patrol the the propperty. I believe doxie are hypo-allergenic?

783 In the early 80s I was acquainted with a BBS operator named Rob Rosenkrantz, who went on the gun down a friend of his younger brother when was threatened with having his homosexuality exposed. I thought it was a bizarre rumor until it turned up in the paper one day.

http://articles.latimes.com/1986-05-16/local/me-5686_1_murder-case

Years later, I was reading a book by a forensic psychiatrist who is often called upon to testify in insanity pleas. The only subject whose name he obscured in the book was Rob, because the case was relatively unknown and he thought there was a good chance Rob would eventually be paroled. So he changed his name to Rob Green and reversed the geography, having him live in the Bay Area and hide out for months with a friend in the San Fernando Valley. But it was quickly obvious to me who he was writing about.

784 Continuing from @780....



So, anyway, we go through the pro's process and rats should be gone.



Now, because it's late and I didn't lay this out correctly, I have to digress a bit. We have a small galley kitchen, remodeled in 2004. It sits at the bottom of our U-shaped house -- on one end of the galley is a door to the entry hall that opens up in the middle of the bottom of the U, and on the other is a small dining area. One of the major rat entry-ways was a little-ways up the U on the outside, close to the dining room, in the attic, where there had been an architectural oddity in the roofline.



A few months after the rat eradication, I had a project that I set up on the dining room table, facing into the kitchen. Every so often, as I was working there, I'd hear a brief shuffly-sort-of noise up towards the kitchen. Gradually, it dawned on me that it could be a re-infestation of rats.



So, the next time I heard it, I went around to all the places I knew about (and could get to) where the rat company had placed bait. Nothing. On the good side of things, I discovered where the air filters of the furnace had wandered off to.



I heard it again and just seethed.



I heard it again and just seethed. On the good side of things, I got to rummage through some luggage and identified some pieces that were handy on our next trip.



I heard it again, and checked every spot I knew they'd put bait, along with everywhere I could think of that might be vulnerable.



The rat company had a two-year warranty on their eradication efforts. I called them in about six months in. They inspected everything I had looked-at and more (if you're in the SF Bay area, and have a rat problem, they are awesomesauce). They found nothing.



I heard it again, wondering what was up.



Then, by happenstance, I was standing IN THE KITCHEN, instead of sitting at the dining room table -- and I heard it again.

789 Continuing from @784.....


From standing by the kitchen sink, the noise seemed to come from a slightly different place.....and I started rummaging around in that area and quickly found that the automatic icemaker in my fridge made a rustling/shuffling/scrabbling sound when it dumped a bunch of ice cubes into the bin.....an ambiguous noise that sounded like it could be from the attic if you were seated on the other side of it.



You can easily imagine how silly I felt when I realized that the rats in the walls were really the icemaker in my fridge, and how embarrassed I am about my service call to the ratslayers.



On the other hand, telling this story reminds me that I should have been checking the stupid baits every six months and I stopped doing it two years ago after the refrigerator thing and that every false alarm had me checking something I should have been checking anyway.

799 ....and this very silly story leads to the night I got banned.



Real rats = real threat from Ira; real ratcatchers = real measures I took; weird sounds = "Coo-Hoo"; OCD behavior looking at bait packets = OCD behavior checking perimeter; real benefits from OCD behavior = real benefits from OCD behavior; WTF realization that bad rats =/= good ice machine = WTF realization that bad Ira =/= good andycanuck.....



On the night I got banned, I was trying to tell a story very similar to tonight's rat story, because it had humorous similarities. Unfortunately, I was trying to compose it in real time. While I was presenting the narrative, I alarmed andycanuck -- for which, I am very sorry. I hold him as blameless as I hold my refrigerator and always have. On the other hand, I was attempting to use him as a character in my own tale of personal silliness and left him in dramatic tension when my story arc got nuked by banning. I am so very sorry to have caused andycanuck, a Moron I know and love, such grief for being in my story.



In a similar note, CBD tried to warn me as I was attempting to finish the story arc, hit the punchline, get to the conclusion of an old man in a bathrobe doing what he should every X because someone on the intertubez goes Y. And I tried to blow past him 'cause I was so damned close.....I'm an idiot, I'm sorry that I caused CBD grief, I'm just embarrassed.
