Overnight Open Thread (17 Dec 2016)

The Progressive Echo Chamber Explained In One Roundtable.

Derangement of the Left

This is pretty stupid if true. Maine gas distributor won't deliver to Trump supporters.

China

China must be done analyzing the drone. I wouldn't have given them this long to respond or return it. China to return seized drone, calls 'hype' inappropriate.

Best News Bloopers of 2016

Fake News

It's all BS. The hackers and the hacks.

Who in the United States intelligence community has created the hysteria about Russian hacking, and what is the evidence of means and motive? House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes sought a briefing by National Intelligence Director James Clapper with participation from FBI Director James Comey and CIA Director John Brennan in a closed session yesterday. They, however, would prefer not to. USA Today reports that they refused to appear for the requested briefing.

Brief it or STFU.

Speeding Ticket Insurance Cost

How a speeding ticket affects your car insurance in every state. I just try to avoid them.

Flying Vid

College

You're wasting your money and time if you take this crap. University of Wisconsin offering course on the 'The Problem of Whiteness'.

Sex Toy Self Defense

I dunno, not a smart thing to do if a gun is aimed at you. Employees of an adult store scare off an armed robber by throwing assorted sex toys at him. I'm thinking it wasn't a real gun. Either that or the guy saw there wasn't any money in the till.

Total Solar Eclipse

Sweet. Next August, the US will be treated a total solar eclipse.

Cat Video

Tonight's ONT brought to you by Khrushchev meets a U.S. Nude Statue:


Yikes. I agree with Khrushchev.

She lost the Miss Russia sweepstakes.

She loses again on Monday when the electors vote.

She loses when the US House counts the electors votes.

How about y'all? When you shop local, do they wish you a Merry Christmas, A Cool Yule, Happy Holidays? Or do they say nothing....

We also get a kick outta...."Well if I don't see ya, Have a Merry Christmas.."
So, does that mean if you do see me before, then you want my Xmas to suck?

We joke that the Christmas Police won't cite you for wishing the same person a Merry Christmas multiple times.....

Andrew Sullivan was a good read before 9/11 but then slowly became a
Democrat, then a Liberal and then more progressive to the point where I
quit reading him unless he was cited here or at nsty for saying
something ridiculous.

Interestingly most politically aware liberals are indeed evil. And if you talk with them, and they don't realize you aren't a liberal, it becomes fascinating.

They want to reduce those outside of their in group to serfdom. They want to imprison those that publicly disagree with them. They want to reduce the number of people with brown skin. And on and on.

Fortunately most Dem voters really have no clue what they are voting for. Basically the Dem politicians promise them handouts and they are willfully ignorant as to where that money will come from.

245 215 40 I've been watching the second season of Man in the High Castle and the standout performance for me is Joel de la Fuente as Inspector Kido. He is so contemptuous of everyone, curling his lip in barely concealed distaste like he is constantly smelling dog shit.

Last time I saw him in anything was Space: Above and Beyond which I think Frank Spotnitz also wrote for.
Posted by: All Hail Eris, She-Wolf of the 'Ettes 'Ettes at December 17, 2016 10:24 PM (EnKk6)

I watched two episodes Thursday and three more today. I think it's the best television show I've ever seen and should be required Moron watching.

De la Fuente does a great job with his character.

My favorite characters are Trade Minister Tagomi and Obergruppenfuhrer Smith. Both are complex characters.

259 189 I'd like to see a governor some ware run on a platform on taking speeding tickets fine from law enforcement and giving them to the local department of public works instead.

Why do we give cops a bounty for the least serious crime that is actually enforced with any regularity.

Speaking of which, President 18-1 would introduce the bounty system for the INS...say $100 per?

Posted by: 18-1 at December 17, 2016 11:03 PM (aZq03)

++++

The reason police departments have quotas for cops writing tickets is that the money does go into the city's coffers. Any governor that wants to mess with that would have to come up with an alternative revenue stream for cities. Like taxes. So, nobody who wants to win is going to do that.

I like the bounty for illegals though. Of course, it will never happen since it makes too much sense.

Okay, supposedly everyone is saying that, 30 years into a 120-year-long hibernation trip, Chris Pratt *and* Jennifer Lawrence awaken and fall in love.

Actually as it turns out, Chris wakes up 90 years early, realizes he's destined to die before the trip is over, and in terrible loneliness/desperation after a few years... awakens Jennifer Lawrence's character.

And, it turns out: Chris Pratt's character *chooses* JL to awaken, because he gets a crush on her based on her character's journalism work, as well as her looks.

So now there's people saying "Passengers" is actually a great big sci-fi stalking fantasy. And male privilege, rape culture, yadda yadda yadda.

That reminds me of that scene in "And Justice For All" where the guy is before the judge (Jack Warden) because he cursed and fondled a waitress, or something ... and he tells the judge he curses because he's diabetic.

The judge responds by saying that he doesn't see how diabetes causes people to curse and the guy immediately fires back, "That's because you're a douchebag." (back then that was pretty racy talk)

I was once again impressed how the Nutcracker is a SJW's worst nightmare. CIS-gendered (did I get that right?) m/f roles, gluten-saturated sugar-coated scenery, and boyoboy what a bunch of stereotyped cultural appropriation! Chinese! Arabian! and Russian!!

409 A movie that teaches history, but is beyond elementary kids....

The Best Years of Our Lives......

I watched it again on TMC last night, the nuance is marvellous. Well deserved Best Picture win.

The Longest Day was mentioned earlier, an I concur. Definitely not bloody....

The Battle of Britain from 1969 would be good too. Not overly graphic, but you'll want to skip Bill Foxley scene.....he's the burned pilot. Kids should see the COST, but in this day an age you'd lose your job.

Mr. Foley was a member of the Guinea Pig Club.....those fellows were testament to the power of the Human Spirit to adapt an overcome.

G oogle The Guinea Pig Club.......incredibly interesting and reaffirming.

As long as you don't expect much it's fine. I suspect it is going to age horribly though as it has too much "I want to be like these other loved superhero movies" rather than "I'm the bad guy, take a chance and watch me go" to it.

Plus I'm not certain Will Smith knows what his character is supposed to be in any given scene- I like him as an actor and even with that tinge to the glasses his performance seemed muddled.

But still, better than Dawn of Justice so it cleared that pathetic bar.

455 Weft. Use a steel straightedge, and use an awl or sharp X-Acto knife to scribe your lines.

Then, use a fairly aggressive wood rasp, to SLOWLY draw along the scribed lines, till you've really established a groove deep enough to hold a finer file within the groove's own confines. It'll still need to be a fairly coarse file, but not as coarse as a rasp.

When you're near the final dimensions, switch to a finer file, and go for smoothness and evenness of surface.

Finally, wrap that smooth file with sandpaper, working down grits from 150/220/400.

That should get you some good work, and the files will let you CONTROL your work, going slowly enough to be very accurate, indeed.

The family of wood chisels, gouges and the like, are too easy to take a bit too far, make a hideous over-run or too-deep cut.

Or worse, slip and cut'cher own damn self.

For this one, barring a router or Dremel via a good jig... go with the files.

It'll seem like it's going slow, but you'll be amazed at how quickly it actually moves along, once you get into a rhythm.

And though it tells it's facts correctly, it does leave out the ugly "other side" too. Of insurance companies absolutely stiffing their customers, or slow-walking them through a series of insufficient adjustment amounts, etc.

One thing it should have covered more, but only mentioned. The homeowners who suffer a hailstorm, but then don't claim damage, cause it's "not leaking".

I've seen literally, hundreds of such roofs that started leaking a year later. That medium sized hail damage severely compromises the shingles, and highly accelerated wear and a shortened service life, result.

They should ALWAYS get a qualified roofer to inspect the roof after a hailstorm.

I've told a few dozen homeowners; "no real damage, let's look at it annually from now on."

If there's not claimable damage, why would I want to waste my time? But, it often happens that you can only SEE the damage, when standing right over the given shingle in question. And you can't see that kind of damage from the sidewalk. You just, can NOT.

The hard part is finding a reputable, ethical roofing professional, in a sea of storm-chasing shingle carneys.

Homework and due diligence are vital elements of the homeowner's decision process, there!

If it is real cold out, well below freezing, leave the car outside, and the salty slush will freeze. Frozen, it can't act on the steel of the car body. Put it in a heated garage, and the salty slush can work all night long.

If it's mild enough for you to use a hose outside, hose it off, not neglecting the fender wells.

501 logprof: Apocalypto featured Yucatec / Lakantum Maya, from the north. Not the Chorti Maya who did the Guatemalan cities, the ones in the famous Maya collapse of the 900s AD.

In the north, Mayapan lasted well into the middle 1400s, and there were other, smaller cities that lasted until the Spaniards. I think the Nojpeten city held out until almost 1700.

As for the Aztecs, by then Yucatan had taken on some Aztec influence. (And Toltec influence before them.)

We sold a 20ga single shot to this guy, the vibe he gave was Mongolian redneck, to be a present for his girlfriend. Then he said he still needed to shop after purchase so had to lock the weapon back up until he was done. So about an hour later had to call a manager back over because dude was finally done shopping. Managed to perform a little cleaning and straightening but still looked like a storm had gone through.

Then as I was heading to turn in keys and clock out, got intercepted to handle a Site to Store pick-up. Site to Store closed at 10 and this guy claimed he had been there since before. Well dirty little secret Wal-Mart lets you slide out a little before your official clock out time so everyone in Site to Store had already hoofed it. So pulled up the order and then a snag and a WTF. It was an expensive electronics item that should be in the secure room, instead it was in a normal bin under a padlock. Then it took about ten minutes for a manager to find the right key and then finally gave to the customer his package. So managed to clock out 19 minutes after I was supposed to.

The stuff I got is about 7/16" thick, and has fake raised-grain "planks" molded into it. There is a tan glazed finish on it, but the instructions say to caulk the seams, and paint the surface within six months of erecting the wall.

It soaks up paint like a sponge. I figure 3 coats of exterior latex is the least you can get away with.

OK, what I am using is not Hardi-board. It's Sturdy Panel, made by Collins Products, www.TruWoodSiding.com I think I paid about $18 per sheet. It's compressed wood fiber, and some sort of resin binder. Very heavy.

Thanks for the car washing input. Were it up to me we would park it outside but the powers that be do not like getting into a cold car in the morning. hard to argue since she is petite petite and dislikes anything below 75.

we park it in a heated garage and there is a car wash area so I have been hosing it off when we get home and washing it when the slop (snert?) dries up.

you were right, if I park it inside with out hosing it off I feel as if it is sitting there rusting and not hosing it off seems lazy.

548 OK, what I am using is not Hardi-board. It's Sturdy Panel, made by Collins Products, www.TruWoodSiding.com I think I paid about $18 per sheet. It's compressed wood fiber, and some sort of resin binder. Very heavy.

Sounds like a Hardi Board type product, could be comparable. We've got a pretty sizable sq footage to cover, so rather than laying out a big chunk of money all at once I have considered replacing one side at a time, taking care of the worst areas first. Just wondering if I can get the color to come anywhere matching the existing siding.

Hardi-board is fiber cement, Sturdi Panel is an "engineered wood product". Cement resin in it is not urea-formaldehyde. Surface is quite hard; sometimes it takes quite a bit of doing to get a screw to start.

AOP- we've gotten a lot of woodpecker damage on our wood plank siding at the mountain place, I've wondered about replacing it with HardiBoard. Did you use pre-colored or stainable? Is it pretty spendy? I like the idea of glue & screw, but not sure it would be necessary for our application. I've heard it is an effective anti-woodpecker option.
Posted by: Muldoon at December 18, 2016 01:06 AM (wPiJc)


The Hardiboard has about a 50 year life, the other wood siding about 30 years. We replaced ours 3 years ago with the Hardiboard, and it was the best decision that we made.

If you are having woodpecker problems, you will probably also be replacing a lot more than just the siding. We had the same problem when it happened and we had a some of the underlying sheeting have to be replaced.

Of course, that is when we found out that the contractor that added the addition on to our house used a lot of materials that were subpar instead of the better quality that he swore he used and that we had the invoices he provided saying that is what he used. When the siding was removed, there was the cheap shit.

Valenki+galoshes = Sorel = Mickey Mouse boot. All the same concept, thick felt liner in a waterproof shell, with a sole.

IMHO, felt pacs are great for standing around, or working outside where extensive walking is not required. They are ill-suited to long hikes; don't provide enough support.

626 That's truly funny. Never heard of having one's helmet shrink so bad. -35 makes tonight's 8 (feels like -5 ) sound positively toasty.

I went swimming in 8° weather one New Year's Day - might have been 12°, I don't exactly recall. Penguin Plunge in Narragansett. It was almost better being in the water. Almost ... Fun time. Everyone wore bow ties and made funny sounds as they went in.

627 You know that old kids' toy where there are different shapes like triangles and circles and squares and you can rearrange them to make -- abstract-looking shapes? Never had it, nor did our kids, but, I remember commercials for it.

You know that long-running animated series where the art looks like it was done with that abstract shapes toy? The show has little kids as main characters - I think it's the one with the "they killed Kenny" running gag, although I've never watched the show. And the classic, oft-referenced licking up tears scene.

There's a character on there with a name something like "Cardamom," isn't there?

I was trying to make a joke to Milady as I added some Cardamom to my warm beverage, but couldn't remember any of the above-mentioned elements.

I obviously need more stiffer beverage. Or ten hours' sleep. Or a cultural information upgrade. Or to not try to make stupid jokes at 2 in the morning.

Cartman! That's the name, right? Now, what was the series? and the toy?? Oh, never mind. I quit caring several paragraphs back.

I think I see a reference there that I'm going to ignore because... um... it's so cold right now my helmet's shrunk.

655 About that total eclipse, which will happen on August 21: there's a 200-mile stretch of I-80, in Nebraska, that lies in the path of the eclipse. Now, if a 'ron or 'rette were driving eastbound on that stretch when the eclipse begins, he/she, by going very fast, probably could prolong the period of total darkness by several minutes. It would be crazy!

659 Good Morning Morons


That DUI rate for SC is way low. It costs about $1500/yr extra on first offense. You don't have to worry for a year on second offense because no license.


And insurance in SC is already way high with no DUI.

669 In 1977 I was paying about $500 a year in CA in the bay area for car insurance (liability only), When I came to SC that same year it went up to $500/six months.


And that was with a perfect driving record.

Posted by: Vic We Have No Party at December 18, 2016 05:02 AM (mpXpK)

670 Oy. The number has been reached.

plus, I'm losing felling in my feet ...

It might be lots of uninsured drivers.

676 I asked the agent why it was so much higher in SC than CA. He said that SC drivers were more likely to get into a wreck and more likely to sue. When I questioned that with regard to the most litigious State in the union he said that's the way it was.


I later found out the "real reason". SC insurance rates are regulated by an "insurance board". Guess who is on the insurance board. Insurance company executives.

Posted by: Adriane the O-furo Critic ... at December 18, 2016 05:04 AM (AoK0a)

Yes, there are a LOT of uninsured drivers here simply because the rates are so high. But the State Patrol is supposed to send for your license and tags if you drop your insurance so I don't know how that works.

Posted by: Vic We Have No Party at December 18, 2016 05:12 AM (mpXpK)

Posted by: Tim in Illinois at December 18, 2016 05:18 AM (d76uN)

I don't know. Probably the governor. I don't think they are elected otherwise insurance executives would never get on it.

Posted by: Vic We Have No Party at December 18, 2016 05:21 AM (mpXpK)

689 And speaking of insurance my wife got a notice yesterday from State farm that the will be dropping her insurance next year. Their stated reason was that they could not get any information regarding the driver of her car when it was involved in an accident in Charleston a few months ago.


We both had given them this information multiple times. So they are either lying or incompetent. She will be going to see our agent Monday. I told her to tell them that if they drop the insurance on her car they can consider the insurance on the other two vehicles and the house to be dropped too because we will seek another company.

708 Gaston Lachaise's first sculpture of his wife is called simply "Elevation" and stands 70 inches tall. One of these in bronze stands in the Baltimore Museum of Art's Janet and Alan Wurtzburger Sculpture Garden, and is a happy, glorious statue.

When my two kids were toddlers, we'd often visit the sculpture garden. I taught them that this amazing nude was actually a sculpture of their mommy, and they'd delightedly run up to it yelling "Mommy! Mommy!" and give it hugs.

This was funny until my wife visited the garden with us.
