Friday Overnight Open Thread (12/16/16) CDR M-Less Edition

wiener-dog-captain-costume.jpg

Ahoy Matey, It's Friday night.

CDR-M is gallivanting across the countryside 7 Seas. He will be back soon. We hope.


The impending collapse of the global warming scare.

Even as this scare has advanced, a few lonely voices have warned that the radical environmentalists were taking the movement out onto a precarious limb. Isn't there a problem that there's no real evidence of impending climate disaster? But to no avail. Government funding to promote the warming scare has been lavish, and in the age of Obama has exploded. Backers of the alarm have controlled all of the relevant government bureaucracies, almost all of the scientific societies, and the access to funding and to publication for anyone who wants to have a career in the field. What could go wrong?

Now, enter President-elect Trump. During the campaign, as with many issues, it was hard to know definitively where Trump stood. Although combatting climate change with forced suppression of fossil fuels could be a multi-trillion dollar issue for the world economy, this issue was rarely mentioned by either candidate, and was only lightly touched on in the debates. Sure, Hillary had accused Trump of calling climate change a "hoax" in a November 2012 tweet. (Actual text: "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make American manufacturing non-competitive.") But in an early 2016 interview, Trump walked that back to say that the statement was a joke, albeit with a kernel of truth, because "climate change is a very, very expensive form of tax" and "China does not do anything to help." Trump had also stated that he intended to exit the recent Paris climate accord, and to end the War on Coal. So, was he proposing business-as-usual with a few tweaks, or would we see a thorough-going reversal of Obama's extreme efforts to control the climate by fossil fuel restrictions?


On Thursday Ace had a thread about Christmas gifts. The big day is approaching. Have you started Christmas shopping? Have you finished Christmas shopping? Do you even have a plan? Some last minute ideas for gifts. Hey, The ONT didn't say they were great ideas.


Hey Sugar T*ts Honey, grab me a cold one and bring me a sammich, pretty please. Now that's a gift.


Enjoy Tonight's Musical Interlude


Speaking of Christmas Carols, Long lost Christmas song is discovered.

Christmas songs are a dime a dozen, from traditional carols to modern-day moneymakers aimed at making hearts rejoice and wallets open. But it's not every day that a Christmas song is rediscovered deep in an archive—or that the song ends up being an unknown work from a famously promising composer. That's just what recently happened: As Rebecca Rego Barry reports for Fine Books & Collections, a Christmas song lost since before World War I has been discovered in the vault of an English library.

Moar Christmas Music. Yes, the ONT knows who has been naughty and who has been nice.


The ONT has been known to comment on products and advertising campaigns. The ONT is not sure who the hell came up with these ideas. Not sure who approved the final product either.


An ode to the millennial generation.

pajama-boy-3.jpg

Pundits are fond of heralding the arrival of the Millennial generation onto the national stage. Every week or so, some Legacy Media columnist or contributor swears the Millennials are on the threshold of seizing the reins of political, economic, and cultural power. However, despite these assurances, there are major indications that the Millennials represent a stillborn generation that will leave behind no lasting legacy.


The mandatory Friday night cute doggeh video.


This next link is for the likes of Country Boy and other Morons hit by the horrific cold weather striking the U.S.A. Valu-Rite is not recommended.


Tonight's hero or Genius Award Winner? You be the judge. Your Cob votes, Genius.


In the event that the Horde votes Hero, tonight's other Genius Award nominee.


Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day. Here's hoping Officer Rafael Burgos has a speedy and complete recovery.


Tonight's ONT has been brought to you by Innovation.

Exactly. Each and every generation has its share of heroes and losers. There are no exceptions. Millennials are no better or worse than any other generation.

The problem is that they have been indoctrinated by the educational system and mass media, probably to a greater extent than earlier generations.

50 So, I got a promotion at work - starting January. But I'm supposed to keep it under my belt until then - and I feel bad, because my supervisor is completely unaware that I'm being shifted to a different department. He was grooming me to take control of our department while he shifts to being out in the field and dealing with customers. And this is a small business, so I think he should have been included in the decision making process - but I'm not going to fuck up a raise and promotion by voicing that to the owner. Stupid emotions and shit!

I wish I was actually as jaded, self-serving and cynical as I pretend to be online...

First thing my lawyer told me when I was filing a suit was to make sure I publish all relevant documents to social media. That's how the legal system works. It's in the Bible or something.

I really want this guy to get the help he needs, not because I give a wet fart about him, but I'm sure there's a bunch of people in his orbit who are tearing their hair out and making frantic phone calls, and I'd like them to be able to sleep through a night for once.

The eldest Drunken Midget dances. 4 classes. Company Dance Team. Competition Dance Team. Tomorrow is the Christmas recital. Which is the big one.

For the 6th year, an instructor takes on the "Dad Dance". Yup. A group of dads is taught a dance and performs it at the recital.

I told them that I didn't think I could do it this year because I was still recovering from shoulder surgery and if the last couple performances were any indication, I physically couldn't do it.

I get texts from the owner and the instructor teaching it. "We need you to do it. We'll choreograph around your injury."

Fine.

By "choreograph around", they apparently meant "make you the lead this year".

the winter weather problems are not as bad as the media people make them out to be. This is often the norm in Michigan. You get a gas guzzling 4 wheel drive, hire a snowplow service for your driveway, make sure you have lots of food in the house. Then, you only go out when you have to.

Even as a Cruz fan, I can say this - a Cruz win would not have produced such an entertaining complete mental collapse from the left. Even if Trump is a dud as President, everything that has happened from election day to now has been worth it. The Schadenbonering can never be undone.

We lived in Chicagoland for six years so I know. Meanwhile, down here, there are people who still can't get their roofs fixed, and roads with trees piled 20'. We called our tree guy to take down a huge dead pine behind us, and we got his full voice mail, and his office telling us they are too busy to deal with more customers. There are tree and roofing people down here from throughout the SE. They have more work than they can handle.

But forget us down here. We're not NY or NJ. Just a bunch of mouth-breathing southern rednecks.

Indeed, his Cabinet picks have largely been great - it's been about the best "President-Elect" tenure that I could imagine.

The left is clearly staggering post-defeat - and Trump seems to know how to execute a Fatality. (I never could - except the one really easy one, which was the lame Liu Kang one IIRC)

Nope. The whole thing is bullshit, along with people bleating about the "true meaning of Christmas." Christmas was fixed at the winter solstice to co-opt the Roman Saturnalia, which was a naked drunken orgy, so we really lost a lot there. The true meaning of Christmas today is a marketing frenzy.

For my part, I've found that since I don't watch TV - at all - nor listen to radio, if I just avoid shopping centers for a while, and take stairs rather than elevators, I can pretty much avoid all of the idiotic Christmas songs, and other retarded crap associated with Christmas.

227 You crazy kids have any fun plans for the weekend?

I'm going to back the car out of the garage, leave a 2" gap between the garage door and the ground, fire up the space heater, and then come back in for toast and eggs and coffee. Once it's warm enough, I need to grease the rails and rollers on the garage door, then figure out why the hell the snowblower won't start.

Well objectively I know it won't start because I was too lazy to properly get it ready to sit all summer, but more specifically, what I need to do to make it run again. I figure CO poisoning won't be that much of an issue since the garage door will be cracked open and it doesn't actually internally combust at the moment anyway. Should I try STP or Gumout or some other kind of gas treatment?

238 Christmas is like any other day, it is what you make of it.

If you celebrate it as the birth of a savior, then it is. If you treat it as a simple ploy by a young religion to supplant an older, then it is. If you think it's just naked consumerism etc, well.....

Decide for yourself what the day means to you and then act accordingly.

To its credit, Last Christmas' music video must be the least expensive one in existence. It looks like somebody just took video of WHAM members on vacation in either Colorado or near the Alps and spliced in the studio version of the song.

Sooooo much wrong with this flick. The scifi/spy script idea is fucking stupid. They actually made Alice Eve look frumpy. Oldman and Jones are just awful in these roles, truly awful. Etc, etc, etc.

But it's a hoot to watch Costner growl his way through the film, playing a psychopath with implanted memories from a dead spy beating the shit out of random Limeys in London.

342 Today we had Obama's strange presser, in which he describes a scenario fit for a Netflix Original Series, a tale of intrique and secrecy that his syncophants in the pressroom nudged along gleefully.

We had the reports of Herself at her Plaza party saying the same thing: the Russians did it.

We had all the major papers and networks repeating it all as if it is gospel truth, and yes, for sure, because we say it is so, the FBI concurs that the Russians did it.

And it's all conflated so it comes across to the LIV class as yes, the fucking Russians gave Teh Donald his victory, so he's an illegitimate PEOTUS, and so there!

Then came Mooch with her Oprah tea-time, and how there's no hope left for any of us.

We have antenna only TV and thus get one network only, that being ABC. And ABC News came on front and center this evening running with all of this like it's everything they've got.

So it looks like we'll have a fun time for the next 35 days or so, and maybe for years after.

Also, since you can't buy an actual Earthling gas can anymore, I noticed around June that the thing was like a bloated tick from the heat. I twisted and pushed that stupid dumb no-vent nozzle to release the pressure and it sprayed about 32oz of refined petroleum product all over the driveway.

Good. I actually felt really good about it. Here you go, EPA or whoever, if I were allowed to own an ordinary gas can, I wouldn't be blasting gasoline out into the pwecious environment, but since this is what you decided I must do, because I am a dumb baby child who cannot be trusted to keep a container with liquid in it, enjoy. It's no more or less than what you asked for.

388 Just remember everyone that a black community organizer who served one term in the Senate was bigly qualified. His pant crease proved his qualifications. On the other hand a business leader is obviously incompetent, and disqualified and therefore he must be stopped and replaced with someone no one voted for. That is the Democratic thing to do.

397 Hey little shyning man, glad you showed up.
Saw the comment you made about the cabinet you're building for your D18.
You said said something about putting a humidor and gel packs in it.
For what it's worth I think the gel packs will defeat the purpose of the humidor.
You'll probably want to keep the humidity in the case around 50%.
You can probably find a measuring device and humidifier at a high end guitar shop. If they sell Martins, Collings, Taylor's and the like they should be able to help.

If you are smelling gas when you crank it, it's getting fuel. Now, is the fuel fresh, or is it last year's fill-up? Ethanol-polluted gas goes bad in a short time, and becomes much harder to ignite.

If the fuel is old, siphon it out, and dump it in your car, which can tolerate a small dollop of old fuel in a tankfull. Put freshly-purcahsed fule in the snow blower. Now, remove the spark plug, and dry it if it is wet with fuel, and clean it if it is fouled. Or just buy a new one and install it.

Pence is taking the briefings, every day. Others on Trump's staff will probably be doing so as well. *If* those reports about Trump turning them away is accurate (and I have my doubts), he can keep DT clued in, at least hopefully.

And it came out only recently, Obama's been known to wave off his briefings more than a few times.

From what I read he didn't want them every day. He wants them twice a week. Most presidents choose how they want their intel briefings. Bill Clinton only wanted written summaries for the week. He would then sign them and send back any questions or comments. It was not custom that the president got intel briefings every day. GW got them every day, but it was a time of war. Choom blows his off completely. I have no problem with twice a week briefing because if something happens, he will be notified.

505 Lots of low-grade background infections can mimic early dementia. Hell, just look around here any night.

Urinary tract infections are famous for that symptom. Ears, too. Mild pneumonia, if you believe it can be mild. Even in the so-called prime of life, a drag on the system like that can affect memory, mood, outlook, and just generally make you "woozy." Try not to panic, because there is a plenty of curable chances before you get to the hard stuff, and there's even some hope there.

Now you really need a diagnostics guy, because a mechanic of mine had an artery cleared mechanically, and a little chunk of plaque got loose in there and caused a minor stroke. Of course, the doctors said "it's not that uncommon."

Once they knew what went down, he got right to work on therapies, and ended up pretty good. Not like a "stroke victim," anyway. As you would imagine, it pissed him off a lot.

We will be celebrating the end of our long national nightmare. The bar will have free drinks for anyone being part of the "MAGA" party. Depending on what happens this weekend, the open bar tab will go until it hits somewhere beteween $500-800.

547 Slap,

"I talked to Dad for over an hour. He is losing his shit.

He wants me to come over for every email he doesn't understand.

It was once-a-week a year ago. Now it is almost every-other day.

My Mother has been screening me from most of it, as well.

That means it is worse than I thought."

Might be jumping in here but...

Have you considered setting up a Team-Viewer type set-up and a scheduled "chat" when you guys can do "e-mail stuff", like 2x a week?

I dunno, like every Monday and Thursday, an hour and a half (scheduled) to remotely wade through e-mails when you are off work but still need to get some shut eye?

Sorry if I'm sticking my nose in...

I also remember the portable stereos where the turntable folds down and I used to put a nickel on the tonearm to keep records from skipping. And the hi-fi's of the 60's, and the Pioneer turntable I had in 1975. After that I moved on to cassettes.

Although I have a digital converter here that has a turntable, so I can play my remaining vinyl.

I've been over there often. We live within five miles of one-another. I call them almost every night.
When Mom told me that Dad was "losing it", I scoffed. He was the most "scripted" guy I know.

He is "Columns Based" and don't ever try to talk him out of it. I learned well from him.

In my twenties, he never called me.

In my thirties, he called to say "hello"

In my forties? He has called me almost once-a-week to ask about emails.

Most of them were nothing, but he isn't as sharp as he used to be. He is forgetting things and I'm quite sure we've reached a downhill slide.

My Father is "losing it".

He is scared. I am also scared, but I hold on through Christ, Our Lord.

When I was a kid, my father had a couple of spring-wound phono motors around. He warned me in no uncertain terms to never take one apart, because "that spring can break your arm". I took that to heart, and never did take one apart. But I suppose there is a way to handle them, safely.

If the spring were broken near the end, I could see annealing the area near the break, and forming a new end. Worked for clock springs, and lawnmower recoil springs.

The old 78's were of much stiffer material than we're used to with LP "vinyl" records, and actually had emery grit mixed into 'em, so they'd sharpen the phonograph needle as they played. You needed to play a couple of records to settle-in a needle, then rotate it every once in a while so it didn't get V-shaped with flat faces.

630 Well, major progress today in the ongoing sag of Peon's house reno. I hacked 2 inches off the north end of the trailer today, that two inches being the outer aluminum skin, the projecting awning (a little over a foot) and the 2X2 framing which supported it all. I had previous built a solid 2X6 stud wall right smack against the inside of the flimsy original wall.

I can tell you a reciprocating saw with a Milwaukee scraper blade in it makes short work of the aluminum siding and the galvanized steel roof covering. Like a hot knife through butter.

So my job tomorrow is to cut some pieces of Hardi-board siding, and glue and screw it to the outer face of the new stud wall. I have some 1/4" plywood tacked up there now, just to discourage the hobos.

My understanding from my grandfather is that such concern is not unfounded. The emery in the 78s will aggressively erode your needle. In addition, a standard stereo cartridge will read a mono recording, but will likely be unhappy with trying to interpret a 78 with grit. Expect that reading your 78s will likely destroy a cartridge or stylus along the way.

His review of Dark Knight is also very good. I was surprised that after 8 years there are still interesting things to say about it.

Previous civil service rules: no matter how much you fuck up, you have a job for life.



Proposed new civil service rules: if you fuck up, we won't shoot you.....provided you're clearly out of range within 30 minutes.

695 Me: Dad's birthday.

Cthu: ...He lives on in memory. Thank you for sharing, so he can live a bit more with us....

I have talked about him before on here. He was Republican National Committeeman from Oklahoma. Helped turn the state around from Dem to GOP, and rated a full chapter in the autobio of our first Republican governor, Henry Bellmon. (A good read. Look for it.)

I have much-prized photos of Dad & Mom at the GOP conventions, with Ike & Mamie, Dick & Pat. My brother wrote Dick about him, and received a signed copy of one of Dick's books, with the note that Dick was sorry my dad didn't live to see "our victory" in 1968. (I have thought, "if he had, your resignation would've killed him.")

Dad was very proud of helping lead the state GOP from the kind of RINO bunch we see at the Fed level to a real and winning party. Okla now the only state (I think) that every county goes GOP every 4 years.

It's knowing that history that kept me from despairing about the nation, and hoping we could turn things around. I'll admit I was quite surprised that the turn should come in the form of DJ Trump, but it continues to be a pleasant surprise.

It is daily astonishing to realize that after eight years of Obamanation, instead of a Hillary, we have an administration that - in a little over a month since the election, and with a month still to go to the inauguration - has begun to seriously transform our federal government. Or, at least, make the wienies boo-hoo.

I do wish I could be talking this all over with my Dad. But with his smoking, drinking, and bad prescriptions, if he'd lived he'd still be dead today. Funny boot that.

Annnd, with that long ramble, I think I'll go apply some toothpaste to toothbrush and power down shortly.

Depends on who you are and what you intend.



Threads, unfortunately, need to be watched -- but not just anyone can effectively watch them. The watcher has to know the memes of the particular timeslot and be familiar with the players to discern what behavior is dangerous. Further, the watcher needs to be "benign" -- in that he needs to let a thread be itself and not just an echo of its author.....which, BTW, was a bit creepy in tonight's ONT because the author kept insisting that the ONT insisted upon itself.



Just goes to show that no example is exactly perfect when you unpack it.



Anyway, I do hope that we are watched over by a benign, familiar presence with good judgment.

Mostly true. Several years back Mrs. Krebs bought me a do-it-yourself install video backup system for a vehicle. I was like, "da fuq?" and she said that I had liked that feature in a car we had rented earlier that year. I said it was interesting to use, but I hadn't said that I'd like to use it all the time. "Next time, ask."

This year Mrs. Krebs and I decided what do "we" want for Christmas. Since we're both doing jewelry, this year it's and oxyacetylene torch for soldering with all the trimmings (including tanks). She researched the specific torch; I'll cover its installation. Not romantic, not usual, but definitely up our alley. I'll rig up our ventilation system after the decorations are taken down and off we'll go.

736 Hoax is defined as a humorous or malicious deception. There is noting humorous about this scam. Once a "joke" involves money and control it is no longer a hoax. It is criminal fraud. And the AGW scam involves billions in money transfers from the US to socialist shit holes all over the globe. That is the intent of the entire scam. But as a side benefit, the watermelons get even more fascist control of businesses and people in the US.


People advancing this scam, including sections of the US government have been shown to be illegally altering data to support the scam and yet this information is not widely disseminated by the press who love them some commie schemes that support Democrats. There is no "science" involved in this scam. In fact, the opening summary of the original report which "cited" thousands of "scientists" in consensus was an outright lie written by politicians, not the so-called scientists who worked on the scam. A fact never mentioned by that same corrupt MFM.


If a Republican had developed an elaborate scheme to defraud the taxpayers of billions of dollars in this manner they would already be in jail.

770 Well, A long day for me.
Awake by 3:30 AM
At noon we get on the train to go to a concert in Chicago. Back by 7 and dinner with friends.
I think I may have a little snooze at the concert.

772 "You don't happen to have a Kate Upton one do you?"

Only if she like a T34/76 M43 or a M4A4E8. I also have a Char B1 Bis that needs to be assembled but that one is one that I won't give away.

775 "The "Jelly Doughnut" thing is stupifying."

JFK speech at the Berlin Wall.

Ich bin ein Berliner!

When he put the "ein" in front of "Berliner" he became a jelly doughnut.

I was teasing you.

Sowwy.

776 744 1. Yes I monitor the early morning ONT and morning threads. Diligent and fair are in the eye of the beholder. Weird, is also in the eye of the beholder.

2. No. Because I have no idea what these references are and have no desire to find out.

3. I am unsure what you are getting at with this question. Are you asking that if I 1will announce to whom ever that he was banned by me?

Posted by: Tim in Illinois at December 17, 2016 05:26 AM (d76uN)


1a. We don't know when you -- specifically -- are monitoring and when you are not. You've previously indicated that you have no desire to enforce the bans of Cobs and when you do not. How can we know which rule applies at which time?

1a1. It is possible that some other cob banned a commenter for dropping malware links. If you refuse to enforce those bans, how should readers know when it is safe to follow a link?

1b. If a Cob has determined a certain behavior will result in a certain circumstance, how can this result in a similar result when you are in charge? Are there codes of ethics that derive from Ace? Do they derive from "his house; his rules"?

2. No worries -- you're on record for taking offense over Tiki Room quotes. Feel free to have no desire to learn about these references.

3. We know that you have commented under a variety of nics and hashes. Are you going to be our watchdog, that we can rely on, with a single nic and hash -- or are you planning on being our Stasi, our secret police, under a variety of nics and hashes and perhaps inciting with one while enforcing with another?

777 NaCly Dog...

I had a dog about fifteen years ago. I named him "Scooter", but I called him "Weasel".

I never slap or smack my dogs. I don't think you need to do that. You can poke them and re-direct them. *Tsst* Dog Whisperer.

I took a picture of "Scooter" and put a sign next to him. It said, "I am a Weasel". The
dog had eaten a whole dozen donuts off the kitchen table.

One small dog.

Fifteen pounds of Weasel.

That's the origin of the nominclature.

778 Thank you, Slapweasel. Good origin story.

779 You're welcome, Sir.

"

cuthulu, this is what I will do for you.

aceofspadeshq@gmail.com

You can ask Ace himself under what rules I operate. He may even tell you.

Now lets get to the meat here. Maybe this "tiki room" reference you are speaking of, bothered in a way that had nothing to do with it being a "tiki room"
reference.

Please post a link to what you are speaking of.

As a Rule, I will not unban someone who was not banned by me. As far as I know everyone that I have banned has not been unbanned by anyone other than Ace.

I will state this. Everyone that has been banned by me, Election Day and before, is back posting.

783 Pecos the long-haired chihuahua is far too dignified to dress up in a sailor suit. Its -21 F wind chill outside, and I have to wrestle him into his sweater, and it's a manly sweater.
