Overnight Open Thread (New Year's Eve Edition)

Well, here's hoping 2017 is a good year. We'll get an idea of where it's gonna go by the end of January I imagine when we get a new President.

Government Cares

Those of you that still believe that government cares for you, I give you this example of why they don't. EPA to Alaskans in sub-zero temps: stop burning wood to keep warm.

Champagne Lesson

5 things you should know about the champagne you'll drink tonight. For example, the bubbles are basically yeast farts.
h/t NDH

Dance With The Dead

Pretty good sound.

Cyber Knowledge

The MSM has much to learn when covering cyber issues. The somewhat dubious "Russia hacked the Vermont power grid" story. Jeez, the infected computer wasn't even connected to the power grid.

Merkel

This has been obvious to most people for some time, but what will Merkel do about it? Islamist terror is 'greatest threat' to Germany. She's already let in more than million refugees and migrants since 2015. Even if only 1% of those are jihadis, that's still 10,000 of them on the loose.

If Germany acts like Sweden, the problems will get worse. Afghan teens convicted of gang rape won't be deported because it's 'too dangerous' for them.

New Year's Resolution Generator

Celebrities

Why you shouldn't listen to celebrities about anything. How clueless celebrities convinced America self-punishment is fun.

Shailene Woodley, eats clay in the belief that it'll adhere to heavy metals and cleanse her body of them.

Clay is "one of the most healthy things you can put into your body," she told a blogger at the website Into the Gloss. "I first heard about the benefits of eating clay from a taxi driver. He was African and was saying that where he's from the women eat clay when they're pregnant." Woodley also told New York Magazine that she constantly drinks iced tea containing a packet of "instant chaga, a mushroom-based powder." "It tastes like dirt," she said. "But I like the taste of dirt."

Not sure I would call Tom Arnold a celebrity anymore, but he is breaking the law by encouraging hackers to hack into the MGM database for 'racist' Trump tapes.

Higher Education

Here's seven of the most absurd 'academic' studies of 2016.

Search Terms

Top Google search terms for 2016.


Cool Stuff

Pretty cool. Watch a meteor fly through the erupting Turrialba volcano.

Take a virtual ride in the cockpit on the F-4 Phantom's retirement flight.

85 Well...

Little sister called tonight. Our oldest brother (73) has bad cancer, among other problems -- mostly medical but apparently some doctor-aggravated -- with possibly just weeks to live, if that. He had problems at Thanksgiving (I didn't notice, sister did) but he hadn't known the extent of them.

Sister is flying in tomorrow to drive Mom (96) up to Kansas to see him. I won't be going, because I have raging contagious flu.

Brother has had a long and interesting life, not always easy, including being one of the earliest polio victims cured. He just announced at Thanksgiving that he and his long-time girlfriend were married. That announcement has a different color now, of course.

A prayer for his peace, and also for our mother's, would not be unwelcome.

And, yes, cancer sucks.

I'm betting that kitten is slapping puppy because puppy is a snorer. I had to share a motel room with my sister last summer. The woman snores like a freight train. I'm surprised people in the next room weren't knocking on the wall.

100 Things qdpsteve intends to do in 2017 that he didn't do in 2016, or ever before:

- Try Chicago deep dish pizza
- Try German food (www.rasselbocklb.com)
- Make at least three dishes from the Well Fed cookbook
- Lose at least 10 pounds, and keep it off (probably after I try the pizza and German food)
- Do serious exercise (walking) at least 300 days
- Do at least one solo overnight casino trip (probably to Pechanga)
- Ask a woman out for a date

My parents smoked 2packs/day forever so I never had the desire, thank goodness. However, I know a few who have done vapor thing successfully. At least you stop breathing in the nasty smoke right away. Then you can work on weaning yourself off the nicotine.My $0.02 from the sidelines, for what that is worth.

155 Public Service Announcement for the newbs (who are all welcomed and embraced even if all of the embracing isn't strictly consensual).

The Barrel is the place to which those who commit crimes against the blog are banished. These crimes are principally failing to close bold or italic tags and causing the formatting to ruin the next several posts.

Adventurous crimes include copying from MS Word, which ruins a lot of things. The best blog offenders manage to copy an entire thread and repost it in a single post. (This is most hilarious when the thread is over 200 posts long).

The punishment for blog offenses is being sent to the Barrel in order to feel shame and also contend with much ick, bitey things, sexual misuse, and an aesthetically unpleasing experience.

St Gwyneth is the one who thought her role was equal to Iron Man in the movies and she deserved the same pay.

And perhaps not by chance, she was also left out of the second Avengers film and Captain America: Civil War (really Avengers 3) when a scene or two of her might have actually worked...but nope, she was gone.

Not that she would have been able to even stand in the shadow of Brian Dennehey who turned in the masterful performance as the Civil War in the film.

214 Years ago when my dad had a dog (an adopted stray) named Nellie, he read a book about testing doggeh intelligence. One of the tests was to put a treat under cling wrap and see how long it takes the dog to figure out to remove the wrap to get the treat. My dad watched in amazement as she ate both the treat and the cling wrap, and shook his head at how stupid she was.

Next day he was in his basement room, with a window that looks out over the back yard where the dog was. Then he looked out and wondered "Why does my dog have two tails?" as she was pooping out the cling wrap.

At the time I looked up that golden retrievers were ranked #3 among breeds in intelligence, and I remarked to my dad that Nellie was the reason they were not #2.

231 As an elderly woman who, in 19th century British terminology, is "on the shelf," I would suggest a different tactic re: resolutions.

Potential moron resolutions:

-do not vomit on boss
-stay out of jail
-do not have sex while driving a car/SUV/bus/boat/other
-keep black helicopters from flying over house
-refrain from getting "mark of the beast" microchip
-do not get face tattoo

And for those who want to be "positive":

-be a better servant to you car
-be a better pal to you dog
-smile more at spouse/children/ random strangers
-eat higher quality chocolate
-be more tolerant of mentally ill libtards

/yeah, I know the last one is pretty impossible...

342 To end the old year here is Morons on Parade!

Now passing the reviewing stand, I don't know these people. Anyone in the booth? The program says "Ace of Spades HQ Blog Kazoo and Harmonica Marching Mand", but they don't seem to be marching, and it isn't much of a formation. Can't tell what they are playing but you have to admire their enthusiasm, especially the kazoo section. They are playing their hearts out.

Are they really in the parade? or have they infiltrated the event? Anyone know.

Wait, here comes security now. It looks like the band is forming up into a symbol.. wait... ok, no, we can't show you that on camera. Security is trying to get control off... there is fire! There is fire coming from the bagpipe sections, look out.... oh the humanity people are on fire!

What? Fire eaters? Spitting flaming vodka? Seriously? The flames have driven security back. Now the have unfurled a pirate flag. Who are these people?

Wait, they are getting out crossbows and longbows, and are starting to skuffle amongst themselves.

I heard one of them yell "Shit just got real."

Wait, I just heard another one yell:

"Some of them seem to have donned Confederate uniforms, while others are wearing Union blue."


One of them just shouted 'Messenger Bags are gayer than Crocs' for some reason.


Another just yelled in response:

"I saw Messenger Bags open for the Green Crocs at the Pink Flamingo in 1986!"

'All the while there's a lone, naked, fat man sitting on a White Ottoman to the very left of the stage.

Is his inclusion symbolic?

Your guess is as good as mine, Bill.'

Wait, standing next to the man on the ottoman is another man... is he dressed as a dildo?! Orange, with jagged brown stripes across the front? What the f*ck is that!?!

I got nothing, Bill.

"Wait now someone is walking around passing out pudding cups. And they're all opening them, but I don't see any spoons. What are they...

Oh, God no. Cut to commercial! Cut to commercial!"

Now... they are setting fire to a skull (what did they cover it with?) and another is dressed like a robot and he is humping the air!

It's a complete madhouse down here. We need to get the national guard down here!

2. Remember that even if I like my clients, they are clients, not friends. Be nice, but stay businesslike and neutral.

When the moon was formed, it was only about 22,000 miles from earth. Earth's rotation about it's axis back then, took only six hours. So...at some point in the misty, damp, moist, dank, humid, oppressive, steamy, pre-pubescent Vic past, while the length of the earth's day, and the average distance of the moon increased, there should, for a few million years anyway, been a period of time where the moon was in a geosynchronous orbit around earth.

Amen. It's a weird thing. If you're looking for work, you're questioning whether you're valuable -- if you were valuable, wouldn't the first interviewer who set eyes on you snap you up? But mostly they don't. Then you get employed, and your evaluation of your worth is in fine shape because your worth is self-evident, and you're desperate to find some additional competent people to hire, and they seem really hard to find.

Weird. It seems to go to the very heart of how our egos work.

416 Sticky: Must have been true for a while. Note that the Martian moon Deimos and Saturn's un-named innermost moon are both pretty close to being in synchronous orbits.

It would be pretty cool, really: there'd be much less tide, just a permanent high tide under the Moon (and on the opposite side).

One interesting paradox is that you'd never see a full Moon in the sky. At sunset (as seen from the point directly below it on Earth) it would be a half Moon, then three-quarters, but then it would blink out as it entered Earth's shadow. It would leave the shadow past full, then shrink down to half at dawn. Then during the day it would dwindle to a new Moon, and there would be a daily eclipse at noon.

When Bork was borked, the Republicans just sat there like wimps. The Democrats had been rotten, but they really reached a new low with Bork and the Republicans, who had been a permanent minority for decades, had no idea how to handle it.

He looks awful, just covered in blood like you wouldn't believe...but his white Apple watch, on his bloody wrist is utterly unstained.

There once was a music and news blog that became a War On Terror blog after 9/11, and was quite popular and got some news coverage and stuff.

At some point, the guy running it got into a tiff with some of his anti-jihad allies, especially in Europe, and it took the form of a kind of anti-Christian thing at first, and then calling people proto-Nazis, and then banning most of the people on his blog, and then preaching to the few remaining about how "the right" was all crazy and evil.

Odd time.

I'd like to buy Moet if it came in 4-packs, but it doesn't.

508 Actually, Moon at 420 kilometers makes no sense. Orbits of celestial bodies are computed from center of mass, which is substantially equal to the geometric center of a spherical planet. Moon's radius is 1738 km, so it could not orbit at 420 km. It would have to orbit at 2158 km to have it's nearest part 420 km above us.

Okay. I'll bite. Who are the LGF people?

Posted by: Libertarianwannabe at December 31, 2016 11:39 PM (nQ10o)

Long ago and far away, there was a blogger who played bass, had a ponytail, rode bicycles, and took pictures of oil rigs. With a pedigree like that, it was somewhat startling that he noted that Islamic jihadists were a clear and present danger to anything approaching civilization -- but, such was the obviousness of this point and the complete stonewall among the MSM and other blogs, his blog became extremely popular.
The blog was named Large Grey Filaments, thus "LGF".
Around the time that pjmedia was founded, the blogger seemed to have some sort of a stroke and completely changed personalities. Things that he would have highlighted six months previous got buried; things he would have rightfully scoffed-at six months ago got put on the front page. Where it had been a free-for-all in the comments, people were being banned right-and-left if they failed to completely agree with the blogger's new position, even if it completely contradicted the blogger's old position of a minute-or-two before.
This led, inevitably, to the great LGF diaspora.

We got Morons, we got typers,
Banned trolls, socks and losers.
An' we got yuppies, we got bikers,
An' we got , thirsty hitchhikers.
And the 'ettes next door dress up like movie stars.

Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, I love this bar blog.
We got vetrans, we got shooters,
Broken hearted fools and suckers.
An' we got hustlers, we got fighters,
Early birds and all nighters.
And the veterans talk about their battle scars:
Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, I love this bar blog.

I love this bar blog,
It's my kind of place.
Just walk in through the front door,
Puts a big smile on my face.
It ain't too far, come as you are.
Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, I love this bar blog.

I've seen short skirts, we've got high-techs,
Blue collar boys and rednecks.
An' we got lovers, lots of lookers,
An' I've even seen dancin' girls and hookers,
And we like to drink our beer from a mason jar:
Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, I love this bar, yes I do!

I like my truck, (I like my truck),
An' I like my girlfriend 'ette, ( I like my girlfriend),
I like to take her out to dinner,
I like a movie now and then

But I love this bar blog,
It's my kind of place.
Just trolling around the dance floor,
Puts a big smile on my face.

I was an expert at kiting checks in my younger, poorer days.

And one of the last prominent links to WWII, an era when even princesses did real military jobs.


A corgi-owning friend said the queen is letting her flock/gaggle/pack/flamboyance of corgis decline through attrition - with an eye on her own timeline. Typically responsible and classy, but sad.

Nah, I can see them being used as an ingredient, like butter in baking, where you want to have the *right* amount of salt every time.

It should be *clearly* marked, though, so you don't make that mistake.

Unsalted butter costs the same as salted butter. Salt costs less by weight than butter. Why buy the adulterated product? Buy unsalted butter and add salt to taste -- you'll save money.

I don't think I'd save money re-churning and re-packaging the butter - then again, I use butter for things other than baking.

Slightly less so butter than say canned goods or meat - but still, adding your own salt later simply doesn't have the same result.

Butter can certainly go rancid. Salt delays that, but it doesn't render it impossible. So you smell your butter if you're in doubt. It's not like rancid butter is hard to detect. Mostly it only happens if I forget about butter for a while (long story) or fail to respond to the onset of warm weather by making use of my refrigerator. NBD.

You don't have to re-churn it -- and you get to choose where the salt ends up.

YMMV? Yikes, that gluten sensitivity thing must suck. After leaving the NE, I had a long quest to find an edible rye bread that ended only when I found Acme's New York Rye. If I'd added restrictions, I might be still searching.

Say, it's the New Year, so I will share my recipe for my perfect Breakfast sandwich.

Two slices Acme New York Rye, or your closest local substitute.
Really good butter, like Kerrigold Unsalted
Really good sliced ham, like Fra'Mani Rosemary ham
Two really good eggs, like you'd get from someone local who has chickens.
A good lilvely mustard. I like that one made from spent beer brewing grains whose name I forget.

Toast Rye Bread. Butter heavily.
Fry eggs over easy or medium, your choice. Season with salt and pepper
Fry ham in butter, adding thin slices of emmenthaler in two layers to cover; cover pan and let melt.
Put some ham/cheese on each buttered bread piece. Spread one side gently with mustard. Add fried eggs from pan.
Combine the slices to make sandwich and eat. It will be messy, more or less depending on whether you cooked the yolks, but either way, it will be wonderful.

That sounds really tasty. My comment was really sort of an inside joke with Merovign -- he's got serious dietary restrictions whereas mine are more like, "that's icky."

Know someone who is allergic to everything in the botanical lily family -- onion, shallot, garlic, chives, green onion, spring onion, etc. As in, cook on same grill + eat something + five minutes => projectile heaving.

The thought occurs to me that one could gain some insight, perhaps, from the demographics of search users and terms they search for. Especially if one had access to all the search engines (or at least the big three) and could cross reference with demographic data.

I can see how that data could be valuable. Perhaps an academic skilled in analyzing data could apply for a government grant and tell us what could be learned by studying our search behavior.

899 Wasn't even aware of this. Good news, courtesy of Rueters -

"A federal judge in Texas on Saturday issued a court order barring enforcement of an Obama administration policy seeking to extend anti-discrimination protections under the Affordable Care Act to transgender health and abortion-related services.

The decision sides with Texas, seven other states and three Christian-affiliated healthcare groups challenging a rule that, according to the judge, defines sex bias to include "discrimination on the basis of gender identity and termination of pregnancy."

Posted by: Donna di deplorable ampersands&&&&and so there at January 01, 2017 01:09 AM (P8951)



Pretty nearly me, except for garlic.

I can cook very, very, very, very, very finely diced onion down into a soup or sauce. To the point where it dissolves. Then it doesn't bother me.

The crunchy cell-walls that give a plant the ability to remain upright, aka: cellulose. That's the problem.

Long as I cook it down into nothingness, it's less of a problem.

Garlic powder? Not a problem.

I can cut onions all day long, never shed a tear. Want 'em sautéed? Not a problem.

Want me to eat 'em?

Call an ambulance.

The car sat for a while, and these things run hot and tend to fry electronics in the engine bay.

There I was, happily munching from a bag of raw almonds while looking for some recipe..when up pops a formula for Chipotle Honey Roasted Almonds. Had to try it. Here's the result:

Pop one into your mouth and begin to chew, the first taste is toasted almond, a little smoky, sweet and salty. When you are just about finished chewing, there's a pop of heat at the end. Makes you think, hmmm, that was interesting, lemme try it again. Pop in another. Same result. The sensation's addictive. Interesting thing is, the heat always appears last, never overwhelms, never gets any more intense.

I'm thinking I'll be buying almonds year round and fixing them this way.

Celiac disease (gluten) intermittently causes milk sensitivity, though usually not to butter or hard cheeses. It can catch you off guard. Cheese is like at the center of my happy food circle.

When I found out about this, it was a nightmare. No one told me Quaker Oats was basically processed with wheat and cross-contaminated. Welches' Grape Soda had wheat in it (WTF), no longer. Doritos also removed wheat from Nacho Cheese Doritos, which is nice, but the new Prego canned sauce has wheat flour in it.

Especially since I'm *also* allergic to one of the gluten-grain substitutes, I *always* have to check labels on *everything*, including gluten-free stuff.

Food development can get a bit crazy. Also, I am not sure what the threshold for triggering an issue with celiac is, but if an ingredient is less than 2% of the total make up, it does not need to be listed on the ingredients- the only exception there is with one of the 'big 8' allergens.

I find it best to have a range of powdered peppers to play with, so you can blend them for your specific application. The ones I regularly use are pasilla, paprika, california, de arbol, hot new mexico, cayenne, and chipotle. Of these, chipotle is the one that is farthest from "playing nice" with other flavors.
Incidentally, pasilla pulls any type of soup to 'warm and earthy' without admitting to being a chili. As an example, it is a nice stealth enhancement to an English-style beef-and-barley soup.

Would rather keep it, if I could fix it. Can't do the work myself because of the heart problem

973 I took it autocrossing once. I would have continued if it weren't a case of three hours of setup, 60 seconds of fun. Anyway, when I got there, the conventional wisdom was "if you want to do autocross, you should have a Corvette or an RX-7."

Yeah I've done SCCA meets where I didn't even get to drive.

For some years in the 90s, the top ranks in some classes were *all* Corvettes and RX-7s. You see more stuff like Elises and Porsches.

But in some classes, the RX-7 is still there. About a year ago someone in SCCA said something like "the standard answer to what the best car to run in SCCA (local levels) is the Miata - except when it's the RX-7."

It also depends on cost and maintenance and that a lot of RX-7s can't really qualify for stock classes because a lot of the turbo control system on 3rd gens is often replaced, and the 2nd gens can be a nightmare to smog (in CA, anyway).

Partly because you pretty much have to tell the tech where *everything* is.

974 959 The problem I have with Chipotle is the weird twang to the taste of the pepper. I much prefer the 'cleaner' taste of cayenne. I can't stand habenero either because of the funny aftertaste.
Posted by: Aetius451AD at January 01, 2017 01:38 AM (92kX2)


Chipotle, yeah, it's not just smoked Jalapeno, there's vinegar or something in there. It's awesome in the right application, but not something to substitute for other peppers. I have a Texas chile recipe (ground beef, so purists might not approve) in which those canned Chipotles with Adobo sauce are just right.

And I agree, Habeneros are too fruity, I don't use them, except for Habenero sauce in the chicken wing sauce. My perfect flavor pepper is Serrano, but the Thai peppers are about perfect too, if you can deal with their heat. For Chinese, those Tsien Tsen dried peppers are great, but I throw one or two dried Thai peppers in there too, for heat. Cayenne I reserve for NO cooking, or random blasts of heat from the powder.

That stuff was hot, not the hottest I have ever tasted (that goes to a concoction an R&D guy was working on at my last job for use in chili) but it was pretty well up there. It was a combination of Naga Jolokia, Trinidad Scorpion, and Carolina Reaper.

The RX-8 (Renesis rotary engine) was officially a Phase II Low Emissions Vehicle.

I don't know if that means the problem was solved, but as big a problem as the fact that earlier motors burn a lot of gas (and thus produce more emissions) is the fact that, despite the design's simplicity, mechanics get *so* lost.

It would be nice to see more, but even the Renesis got poor mileage compared to competitors, and didn't cost less. And the new turbo fours have pretty good power and more torque. I think they lost in the market honestly (though the market is not as well-informed as theory would prefer).

On the other hand, I saw a four-rotor (2.6l) with almost 1700 horsepower, so there's that.

It's been done many times. Either modify the front crossmember or bulge/cut the hood slightly at the front-top of the engine.

https://forum.miata.net/vb/showthread.php?t=564586

A lot of the swaps seem to be older Miata engines, probably for the same reason a lot of RX-7 V8 swaps use iron blocks - effers are penny-pinchers!

It was funny cruising the forums for both RX-7 and Stealth drivers. The RX-7 people (especially 1st and 2nd gen) would be like "how can I do this with spit and bailing wire?"

The Stealth guys (and to a lesser extend 3rd gen RX owners) were like "hey, I just had a carbon-fiber replacement made for the entire rear substructure to save weight!"

There is a dried pasilla - not sure if it's the same chile, but that is the one ctuhuluhwu is referring to (I think) when talking about seasoning stew. It is one of the three "trinity" of chiles in the classic mole poblano (pasilla, mulato, ancho).


There's a bit of fluidity and confusion in fresh/dried chile names for Mexican varieties - used to know the main ones but clearly have not been cooking enough real Mexican sauces (intend to do so in 2017). My mole poblano I used to make in the 80s/90s was so good, I'd have friends and work colleagues regularly ask about the next time I was going to make it.

1033 So Aetius, you're in the food science biz? Is it true that the varying "timing" of chile heat is linked to the different molecular geometries that capsaicin can take? That was the conventional wisdom years back. The difference between instant, sharp heat/sensation and delayed, "glow"-type heat - which can be seen regularly in foods with chile as an ingredient.

Ah, eHow. Kind of the Captain Obvious of "help" sites. And the Spitfire engine bay is not all that big. It looks that way because the entire front end flips up, but the space between the frame rails is quite small.

Which about makes my point. None of them bread and butter cars. Possibly some of the Japanese pickups?

I will measure up the Spit engine, and its compartment. Maybe the answer will be a four-banger from a front-driver, coupled to a suitable aluminum five-speed box. Buddy isn't looking for awesome horsepower, just a reliable engine that can cope with modern shitty fuel, and that basically means fuel injection.

I'd be tempted to try a VW Golf/Audi Fox 1600 with the old mechanical fuel injection. Those things were nearly bulletproof.

1095 Yo!

I got to sleep but now, apparently, I'm back up. I suspect, from the Boulder drunks driving back from Denver.

1097 I bet Putin trolls all of us by publicly denying that he had anything to do with Mariah Carey's fail.

1099 I miss the m-tv unplugged version of Mariah.
Except for the guy, who had a smooth voice, singing with her going all falsetto an incredible cover of I'll Be There.

Why'd she have to go all diva?

I'll allow it if you agree and convince several million of your neighbors that you don't actually live in the "mid" west.

1110 Read the other day that the JEF's vacations cost us something like 86 million. Would really be nice if that's all the SOB and his Ho cost us.

1111 One way to troll the Democrats this year, inspired by a recent Instapundit post - bring back the 80s' pro-Russian protest songs:

Just depends on what the definition of a hill is. Illinois is not totally flat where I am at. You have the Illinois River Valley and where I live now there is the Kickapoo Valley.

Now across the river there is a Valley in a Valley. The Mackinaw River Valley.

So if you are at the bottom of the Valley in the Valley, you can only go up.

Is that a hill?

1125 And one more thing, the F4J Phantom in VF-84 colors is possibly the most beautiful airplane ever. Imagine VF-84 and the VF-41 Black Aces together spooling up to unleash hell on America's enemies. I was fortunate to live that VF-84 flight deck lifestyle for 2 years back in the 1960's. Nothing but memories and tattoos now.

1127 Happy New Year 'rons and 'ronetts - all the best, keep your eyes open, your whit sharp, and your powder dry

BTW - is it me, or did Beck take a quad-extra helping of stupid juice, or, he's let his inner 'dickhead' surface?
