Monday Overnight Open Thread (1/2/16) Mish-Mash Edition

Tonight's ONT is a mish-mash. Damn, day 2 of the New Year and I've already broken a couple of resolutions. But the fish were biting today.

Quotes of The Day

Quote I

We are looking forward to the day when moderate Muslims will be able to take control of their governments, their educational systems, and their law and order, so the Western world could resume mutual constructive relations based on friendship and respect. The whole world is looking forward to that day and praying for a peaceful Middle East. The ball is now in the Muslim world's court. President Elect Donald J. Trump.

Does that sound like Adolf Hitler to you?

It's about time that they (the whining leftists) sucked it up and pulled up their big boy or big girl pants. Every American citizen at one time or the other faces a political election not to their liking. Your time for grieving is over, it is the United States of America. If not, f*cking leave.

Quote II

I've come here to Cairo to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world, one based on mutual interest and mutual respect, and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Barack Obama

While you were sucking up to them they were killing and raping people around the world.


Quote III

If living conditions don't stop improving in this country, we're going to run out of humble beginnings for our great men. Russell P. Askue


Quote IV

Faith has to do with things that are not seen and hope with things that are not at hand. Thomas Aquinas

Speaking of New Year's resolutions, did you make any? Was one of them a weight/eating resolution? Meet Mabel Wolf of Brooklyn.

March 1934: Forty-year-old Mabel Wolf of Brooklyn showed up at Kings County Hospital complaining of acute stomach pain and a loss of appetite. An x-ray revealed the presence of a large clump of metallic objects in her stomach. In a subsequent hour-long operation, surgeons removed 1,203 pieces of hardware from her stomach. The objects weighed a total of one pound, three ounces. Amazingly, they hadn't done her any serious harm.

In 2011, Newt Gingrich said “The Palestinians are an invented people.” He was right. So why are they entitled to a state?

In 1964, the Palestine Liberation Organization was formed to liberate Palestine through armed struggle. But it took years for the notion of a Palestinian people to crystalize. In 1967, they were not recognized as such, nor were they considered a party to the conflict. Security Council Resolution 242 passed after the ‘67 war, made no mention of them.


What I want in a wife. What Great Britan's most eligible bacherors revealed 45 years ago. The ONT guesses one would not answer this way today.

In April 1972, Cosmopolitan magazine revealed what Britain’s 40 most eligible bachelors wanted in a wife. Appearing in the magazine’s second ever British issue, “WHAT I WANT IN A WIFE” is a wonderful and telling slice of British history and pop culture. That a fair number of the personalities were gay adds more interest.

You can’t blame them for playing along. The Sexual Offences Act 1967 decriminalised sex between two men over 21 and ‘in private’. It did not extend to the Merchant Navy or the Armed Forces, or Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man, where sex between two men remained illegal until 1980 (Scotland) and 1982 (Northern Ireland). Only in 2000 was the age of consent reduced to 16, in line with heterosexuals. Same sex marriage became legal in the UK on 29 March 2014.

We are under 3 weeks until TFG is gone. But before he leaves, he is smacked down in Federal Court again.


The NFL, more specifically, the S.F. 49ers, have spit in the face of the common man. Colin Kaeperdick wins Eshmont Award.

In September, Time magazine put Kaepernick on the cover for leading "the perilous fight" against "privilege." On Friday, the 49ers announced that it had honored the struggling QB with its "most prestigious" team award: the Len Eshmont Award, bestowed upon the player who "best exemplifies the inspirational and courageous play of Len Eshmont, an original member of the 1946 49ers team."

The ONT Musical Interlude


Tonight's science lesson. h/t CBD


Moar science. Advancements in the medical marijuana world. Remote control medicine. Will they be able to apply it to other medicines?

While marijuana is increasingly recognized for its medicinal and therapeutic effects, prescribing the drug—”take two hits and call me in the morning”—has long been a tricky proposition for doctors.
Perhaps until now. Syqe Medical—a startup out of Tel-Aviv, Israel—has created a cannabis inhaler that allows doctors to prescribe a precise dose of marijuana and even administer it remotely. The inhaler was green-lighted by the Israel Health Ministry, and has been in use for a year at Rambam hospital in Haifa, which the Times of Israel describes as the world’s first such institution to prescribe weed as “standard medical treatment.”


Ooops!! Genius Award or shit happens, you decide?


Don't drink and drive, what about drinking and flying? Tonight's Genius Award Winner.


Ooops, another resolution broken, tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.


OK, a kinder and gentler Feel Good Story of The Day.

20 "Be nice if the Jordanians would take those Jordanians (palestinians) back."

Jordan: "Yeah, no."

At one point, the father of the current Jordanian monarch invited in the PLO and gave them refuge. They repaid the hospitality of the royal house by attempting to gin up a palace coup to take over the country.

24 I pity whoever takes over the coaching job in SanFran. Anyone with sense would make dumping Kaepernick a condition of taking a the job. But the cop killing supporters of the city would have a massive fit if their douchebag got released.

25 >>Hannity is interviewing Assange. Obama is a liar.

Well, we KNEW that. He's lied about almost everything since he took office, and he's surrounded by frauds like Power and Rice and Jarrett and the execrable Rhodes.

In this case, though, Assange's contention is specifically that Obama and his ball-gagged national security apparatus is lying about the source of the (accurate) Wikileaks emails.

And, given their relative track records, I'll believe it.

63 The female bomber story is the reason that Nigerian women who've been enslaved by muslims aren't welcomed with open arms after they are rescued. It's impossible to tell how willing those who detonated were which makes others justifiably nervous about the good will of the returned.

Add in that most of them have been repeatedly raped and the cultural norm that the child belongs to the father's (muslim) religion *no matter the circumstances*, and it's a major mess with no pretty or easy answers.

The maroon hoard should start our own perilous fight against the privilege of the elite who :

First - presume that they are 'elite'
Second - that they are 'educated'
Third - that they are 'experts' in areas outside of their certificates of qualifications awarded them for the attendance at an 'elite institution of higher education'.

Hiya. While still in college he punched (kicked?) a tv in a fit of anger and injured (a tendon?). Honestly I'm surprised he hasn't been more trouble than he has, not that I've been paying any attention to what he's been up to.

For a while there I was *desperately* hoping to be gloriously wrong about awful stuff on the horizon, so Nov 8th was especially sweet for me since I figured the dems would cheat their way into victory.

362 Last thread CaliGirl asked if I would return to Africa.
Yes, CG I would, in a heartbeat, bearing in mind I was on a mission trip, which is somewhat different than tourism. I never felt in danger but I never wandered the streets of Kampala alone.
The only report of violence I heard in Uganda was when someone stole a motorcycle. At last report he was surrounded by an angry mob debating whether to beat him to death, set him on fire or turn him over to the police. (This motorcycle was likely a source of livelihood.)
While in Kenya we drove past the scene of a funeral of a motorcycle driver. The young seemed vaguely threatening.
BTW I think I might prefer to fly in Africa than drive the same distance on their highways. It's a toss up as to safety.

414 Dave Barry's year-end wrap-up column has zingers for Trump, but also plenty for Hillary and a few that reflect on Barack Obama. I might be seeing what I want to see, but the zingers on Trump are that he's kind of a silly person, and the zingers on Hillary are that she's corrupt and horrible.

http://wapo.st/2hJcSYg

July:
"On the Democratic side, the month gets off to a rocky start when FBI Director James Comey, announcing the results of the bureau's investigation,
reveals that when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, her official
emails, some including classified material, were basically as secure
from prying eyes as a neon beer sign. Nevertheless Comey says he is
recommending that no criminal charges be brought against Clinton,
because, quote, 'I don't want to die.'"

October:
"Meanwhile the Clinton campaign is dealing with a steady stream of WikiLeaks emails
suggesting that the Clinton Foundation is dedicated to humanitarian
relief in the same sense that the Soprano family was dedicated to waste
management."

"A government report
concludes that the Affordable Care Act (Motto: 'If You Like Your
Doctor, Maybe You'll Like Your New Doctor') is going to cost many people
a lot more, while continuing to provide the same range of customizable
consumer options as a parking meter."

November:
"Donald Trump is elected president of the United States,
unless this turns out to be one of those really vivid dreams, like the
one where you're at the dentist but you're naked and your dentist is
Bette Midler and spiders keep coming out of your mouth.
"Trump's
victory stuns the nation. Not since the darkest days of the Civil War
have so many Americans unfriended each other on Facebook. Some even take
the extreme step of writing 'open letters.' Angry, traumatized
protesters cry, march, shout, smash windows, set fires -- and that's just
the New York Times editorial board. Leading celebrities who vowed to
leave the country if Trump won immediately start making plans to ...
okay, to not actually leave the country per se, but next time they
definitely will and YOU'LL BE SORRY."

Yeah, when we deviated from that highway, roadquality was iffy, but the main wild card was my brother's driving not that of others. It helped that Namibia is very sparsely populated and even Windhoek is I think only ~500,000.

They also drive on the left, which gave my left-handed brother kind of an advantage over me.

429 In Tanzania, there is also a decent highway in the middle of the country (financed by the Chinese), which we rode from Dar to Morogoro. Late at night as we were out there, we slowed down and stopped and saw a small mob running down the highway, shaking their fists and chanting. A friend of mine turned to our leader (this was a service trip), and asked him since he had been there before, "Have you ever seen this?" and I looked back and saw him agape, shaking his head.

The driver, an African Muslim who worked for our host, chuckled and just said "Football."

The town was celebrating a soccer victory. They gently tapped the truck as they ran by, but that was it.

I don't feed him at any particular time - being unemployed & home most days, I just wait for him to tell me "its that time."

I realized today that he hasn't done that in a few days...
I was down to 2 or 3 days worth of food in the last bag, so bought a new one, dropped it on the dining room floor and forgot about it.

Three days later, he hasn't eaten, hasn't been super active, and his belly looks like an Ethiopian kid in a 700 Club commercial . He sleeps all day.

Then, today I walked by and saw him with his face buried in the new bag of his favorite Purina Pro made of Lamb.

Very much depends on which country, I guess.

Driven by others, always with armed guards in Cote d'Ivoire, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda. Checkpoints every 10 km, with passage bribes negotiated at each. No fun.

Zud Africa I actually drove myself around for a couple months. I guess I'd only take planes for international crossings- the border crossing bribes are a hassle.

Heh. The other day I mentioned that we have a 'pet' woodchuck in the back 40 named Churchill. One day Mrs. H was looking out the back window and called me; "Something's wrong with Churchill". I looked out, and sure enough, Churchill was lying on his back in the sun, looking swollen.

So I hiked down there to take a look, and when I got within 20 feet or so, Churchill rolled onto his feet and waddled away. That was when I noticed that an entire row of Bibb lettuce was missing from the garden.

Best animal viewing I had was just ouside of the Nairobi Airport. No kidding. This was years ago, before the embassy bombing. There is/was a Howard Johnson hotel that was very spiffy, with lots of local contacts. I'd been thrown out of Addis Ababa (Qaddaffi coming to town) and had to stay a few days to get back on schedule, so I asked for a local driver for a tour of Nairobi Nat'l Park.

Masai country. Giraffes, rhinos, ostriches, lions, crocodiles, wildebeest, gazelles, baboons, etc. Not a zoo, just critters passing through.

Great fun. Couldn't have planned it, though.

579 CaliGirl, I went 20 years ago, but had a great short trip to Masai Mara park in Kenya. Hard-floored tents, but perfectly nice (complete with baboons scooping up your tea and biscuits in the morning if you weren't prompt in getting to them yourself).


Nairob-me was OK. Was a work trip, so we met with the national parks director, whose office must abut that national park in the city mentioned by another commenter above. Hilarious, baboons and other primates were peering through the picture windows behind the director's desk as we talked (Richard Leakey, son of the anthropologist famous for Lucy/Olduvai Gorge, etc.).


Research it, but I'd think you could do an African trip up to your security standards. If the current intel says "dodgy", hire private security (it's only a week we're talking about).


There are plenty of excellent private security companies, I'm sure, in east Africa, staffed by former Brit SAS, Aussie, Kiwi, and South African military types. Just lay on extra $$$$ (you can't take it with you), and do that trip of a lifetime.

I didn't even think to hire private security.
The only time I've had to do that was when we stayed at a resort in Jamaica years ago ,I wanted to go shopping and the concierge recommended a private driver and a guard. We had no problems.

585 I meant to tell you earlier -

I actually found Bully Sticks at my local Food Lion (grocery).

But they were a generic brand "product of Brazil," and $6 for one small bull dick.

I'll wait 'til I get to an actual pet store, and this little guy guy deserves a treat. 6 months? A year?

Thank you for your encouragement Rhomboid.

I will go... some day. My Dad was in the Korean war, and had some amazing experiences in Japan. His memories made me fall in love with it as a child. It seemed like an alien, magical place.

Have not had an honest to goodness vacation since 2009. Life has been... kind of rough since then. Plus I worry about the cat.

Tanzania sounds like a good choice. I've met folks that enjoyed high end 'safaris' in South Africa, too. Capetown is beautiful. Do not go to Jo'burgh.

591 CaliGirl, if you're still here - I speak without specific knowledge but 95% confidence that quality private security, staffed by former Brit/Commonwealth military types, would be readily available in most east African destinations.


Their bread and butter would be resident expat corporate types and diplomatic missions, but hard to imagine they also wouldn't be available for visitors.


It's a large industry, based almost entirely in places like the ones you mention.


Look into it. Aegis is one British outfit I recall, from MidEast work. All the media companies had private security (former SAS, South Africans, Aussies).


Have no idea about cost, but it would be just part of the trip. Might be pricey, but you WANT to see those animals. Well worth it. You'll just have to grill out back a few times instead of hitting Jocko's or Hitching Post.

I hear you! Mr. Occam has been- everywhere, because Navy. But me? Nope nope nope. I'm too much of a homebody.

And here's a cute kitty story for you-

We live smack in the middle of a horse pasture, so stray and/or feral cats are common. A very young kitten, the vet said he was 6 weeks old, somehow got into our fenced yard.

So I'm outside with hell hound, and I see him all perky, wagging his tail- and I'm like "NO! Don't eat whatever you've found!" (I'm thinking deflated balloon, mushroom, etc). I run over and he's found this kitten, sound asleep.

He belly crawls and gently nudges the baby, and that poor thing jumped up, hissing. Hell hound de-assed, and ran right behind me, peeking around me at the kitten. Who was bowed up, and still hissing.

I could not stop laughing. Well, I stopped when evil kitty bit the crap outta me when I took him to the vet's

Evil kitty is happily keeping our barn mouse free. And still hissing at us at every opportunity.

Don't guess. I had labs. Both bloated more than once, but thank God never torsed. I know this drill all too well.

And NO do NOT take him for a walk. Do NOT let him run around. Leash his ass & take him out in the backyard to take a dump.

Once his stomach size & demeanor return to normal, you should be ok.
Posted by: bebe's boobs destroy

OK. Sincerely, Thank You.
I'll keep a close eye on him, and take him with me to "work" tomorrow.

(Honestly, I might have to borrow or go buy a new leash - he runs around the front yard as he pleases & comes to me on command, so I never use it - i haven't seen the thing in well over a year)

603 Greetings from Mesquite, Nevada. As is my wont, I made a late start on the homeward-bound road trip, and didn't clear Apache Junction until just after 3:00 P.M. But I got across metro PHX OK, no traffic issues at all. There was a shitload of oncoming traffic on Hwy. 93 between Wickenburg and Kingman, though, and once or twice I had to slow down and hug the shoulder because some PHX-bound A-hole was passing when he should not ought to.

After grabbing a coffee in Wickieup, I drove non-stop through Kingman, Boulder City, and Lost Wages, and got into Mesquite at 10:00 P.M. (Mountain time) on the dot. While on I-15 near the Nellis AFB turn-off, I chanced to spot a brilliant greenish-white meteor, or maybe space junk, descending on a NW - SE trajectory. It winked out while in full view, so I guess whatever it was, it got totally consumed. Cool, anyhow.

609 #150: Not to mention the fact that most of the

that city even having enough people to support an NFL franchise.

However,
I do see one way they could make up for that. Fans of other teams could
take a vacation in Vegas and see their team play there while they're at
it. That'd make a pretty darned cool vacation, for an NFL fan!
