Quotes of The Day

Quote I

If you have 'too big to fail' for cities or for states, and they believe they'll be bailed out, they'll continue to make unwise decisions. Rand Paul


Quote II

Solitary trees, if they grow at all, grow strong. Winston Churchill


Quote III

Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes. Mike Pence

-Even not so great men.-

Quote IV

The act of saying "Fuck you" to any mortal man who would claim dominion and authority over you is the first act of a free man. Not a free man on paper, but a free man in fact. Ace

Does this look like your desk? It's time to do something about it. Tomorrow, Monday January 9th is National Clean Off Your Desk Day.


On this day in history, January 8th, 1964 LBJ declared "War on Poverty" We lost. Waive the White Flag and lets start over again. Welfare wan't meant to be a generational inheritance.


Have you ever heard the phrase, "Because of _______________ we can't have nice things? Well, it appears to be a world wide issue. h/t CBD

THE STREAKERS OF MACHU PICCHU
"Don’t get naked here" used to be an unnecessary addition to the rules at Machu Picchu. Now they print the request on the back of each ticket.

Peruvian authorities don't know how Machu Picchu got on the "naked tourism" list, but they are eager to get it off. Park attendants have seen so many backpacker behinds that they’ve officially labeled nudity at the site a “threat” to cultural heritage—and are considering banning foreign tourists to the site without official guides.

If you're traveling in Asia and sight seeing isn't your thing. You can always have elevator races. High speed elevators and the cut throat business environment. h/t CBD

The ONT Musical Interlude


On this day in 1956 Elvis Presley's "Don't Be Cruel/Hound Dog" single goes #1 & stays #1 for a record 11 weeks (for a single)

Just a good song, with a different take.

Here at the AoSHQ we joke about the "Pajama Boys" of the world and the kids that live in their parent's basements. Why do they live there? Is student debt an issue? Interesting study behind young adults boomeranging home.

College completion rates have a stronger association with the boomeranging effect than student loan debt. Young adults who did not finish their two- or four-year college have at least a 40 percent higher risk of returning home than those who graduated, likely due to limited options to find a job without a degree.

The authors also found that young adults who have successfully transitioned into adult roles, such as those who are co-habiting or are married, or are homeowners, as well as those who have found success in the labor market, are less likely to move back in with their parent(s).

Political correctness. It points us to a not so pretty picture.

In a well-known paper written after World War II, the philosopher Karl Popper laid out a stark dilemma for societies: they can settle members’ disagreements only through argument or violence. Totalitarian and utopian societies are those that opt for the latter. They prefer the use of force to the more uncertain process of argument.

The society that embraces argument over violence, by contrast, is what Popper called the “open society.” The American system was conceived as one such open society, but, as many of its early thinkers warned, if Americans lose the virtues that make an open society possible, they will open the way to tyranny.

See Quote IV again.


Apple a lifesaver, Windows not so much? MacBook may have saved man in Ft. Lauderdale shooting.

A bullet travelling toward Steve Frappier’s back was stopped by his backpack and the aluminum frame of his Apple MacBook. The man told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Friday, “The backpack saved my life. [I] dropped and the backpack was still on my back and I was turned in such a way where that at one point when the shooter shot toward my direction … there was a bullet that ricocheted.”


Science doesn't always have to involve curing cancer, debating climate change or a host of other topics in the news these days. Sometimes it can be as simple as music.

On a Friday night in December, I sat in a small room with 33 other audience members, each of us accompanied by a dancer in black. The dancers pulled out blindfolds and covered our eyes, and for a brief moment, all was dark and quiet and freighted with anticipation. Then, as a chamber ensemble began to play Claude Debussy’s String Quartet in G minor, the dancers began to “play” the music on our bodies.

When the music soared, the dancers lifted our feet to mimic the sense of weightlessness. When the music was playful, they tickled our forearms. And when it pressed in intensely, the dancers squeezed our shoulders and rocked our heads.

At times, they held scents near our noses, and wafted a wind across us, and even pressed evocative morsels of food into our mouths—truffle cheese with pop rocks, fizzing as the music rose—as if our entire bodies could be recruited into feeling the mad sensuality of Debussy’s work. As if the idea was to bring us inside the music itself.

Isn't a newspaper or a tv news channel referral to a man or woman who is pretending to be the opposite gender as the gender they're pretending to be Fake News?

You're damn right it is!

Every time the press (print or television) reports that "a man is having a baby!" it's FAKE NEWS.

Every time the press calls a woman a man and vice-versa, it's FAKE NEWS. It's a LIE. It's FAKE.

Modest proposal: anyone banninated, but who is a regular whose exile is likely to be short-lived, commuted, whatever, upon their return, shall provide a brief executive summary of WTF it was all about. Or, if review up in the booth shows it to have been an arbitrary or unjust bannination, the hammer-wielder will provide said executive summary.

Hey, I said it was modest.

After 100 rounds of 38spl (158g round-nose lead, 4.2 grains of Trail Boss, for those who care), I'll be back to see if my proposal has earned me calumny and ridicule, or kudos and enconium.

Well, tonight was Columbo, the 2nd Run (ABC) night, showing the second episode of the Season 8 as they call it. A twerpy little douche of a director and SFX man kills an old buddy of his who just learned of and is about to expose the fact that the the little twerp let his sister die after an accident filming her, rather than let that taint his budding career.

And we saw Dog tonight, Columbo's comical basset hound. I'm sure that wasn't the original Dog. :-) I wonder how many Dogs he went through.

I like Columbo better with the older Falk, he's more quirky and cranky. And his face has lots more character.

YM Reconstruction.

Texas didn't have much in the way of Union invasions, and they mutually agreed after the war that Sam Houston was right and that aiding the Confederacy was a big stupid folly.

But when they invited the Union troops in - which they did, because too many Texan men had died in other states, so the state was falling apart - the Union troops lorded over the place like it was conquered land. Texans don't like that.

I realize that at some point in the future, I'm going to get a horrible disease. That disease will cause me to lose a large amount of weight. Once I get over the disease, I will be my ideal weight.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure she put some special notes on my chart in regards to that statement.

175 Modest proposal: anyone banninated, but who is a regular whose exile is likely to be short-lived, commuted, whatever, upon their return, shall provide a brief executive summary of WTF it was all about. Or, if review up in the booth shows it to have been an arbitrary or unjust bannination, the hammer-wielder will provide said executive summary.

Hey, I said it was modest.

After 100 rounds of 38spl (158g round-nose lead, 4.2 grains of Trail Boss, for those who care), I'll be back to see if my proposal has earned me calumny and ridicule, or kudos and enconium.

176 So - we had a little get together earlier today for my older brother's b-day (65 which makes me feel old) and his daughter's December college graduation. It took her 7 friggin' years! She told me that's not unusual these days - what is unusual is for kids to finish in 4.

I don't get it. Considering what college costs nowadays, why drag it out so long? I didn't want to spend 7 years in college - I wanted to finish up and get on with life. I knew people who finished up in 3 and a half or even 3 years, and college wasn't nearly as expensive then.

The upside I guess, is that she majored in accounting and not Womyn's studies and Queer Art or something.

182 May I humbly request healing prayers from the Horde?

My 53 year old baby sister has been experiencing increasingly serious memory issues, culminating in a fender bender blocks from her home, and she couldn't remember where she was.

I spoke with her husband, a physician, and they are both concerned that it may very well be early-onset Alzheimer's (family history there).

I'm hopeful that it's something less serious, more amenable to treatment.

That they have a 16 year old daughter isn't helping.

214 It's knowing that your door is always open and your path is free to walk
That makes me tend to leave my sleeping bag rolled up and stashed behind your couch
And it's knowing I'm not shackled by forgotten words and bonds, and the inkstains that are dried upon some line
That keeps you in the back roads by the rivers of my memory, it keeps you ever gentle on my mind

It's not clinging to the rocks and ivy planted on their columns now that bind me
Or something that somebody said because they thought we fit together walking
It's just knowing that the world will not be cursing or forgiving when I walk along some railroad track and find
That you're moving on the back roads by the rivers of my memory, and for hours you're just gentle on my mind

Though the wheat fields and the clotheslines and the junkyards and the highways come between us
And some other woman's crying to her mother 'cause she turned and I was gone
I still might run in silence, tears of joy might stain my face, and the summer sun might burn me 'til I'm blind
But not to where I cannot see you walking on the back roads, by the rivers flowing gentle on my mind

I dip my cup of soup back from a gurgling cracklin' cauldron in some trainyard
My beard a roughening coal pile and a dirty hat pulled low across my face
Through cupped hands around the tin can, I pretend to hold you to my breast and find
that you're waiting from the back roads by the rivers of my memories, ever smiling, ever gentle on my mind

There's a true story about that, from San Francisco. Someone pointed out that it was hard to find bathrooms in San Francisco. So they figured they'd put some Porta-potties on the street. Nice inexpensive solution, right?BUT...that wouldn't work for people in wheelchairs, so they had to be big porta-potties. BUT...if you put big porta potties on the street, homeless people would just sleep in them. So you have a really fancy Porta-pottie that opens its door automatically after 20 minutes. Now they are super-expensive, but they spent a huge amount of money and put them out there. The junkies immediately recognized them as the perfect place to shoot up. They were sold for pennies on the dollar.

She never mentioned his name, but she roundly condemned him for "her community". Bitch, who really doesn't understand the country that made her a millionaire.

274
That weird feeling when you drop in an elevator? It's due to the upset of your balance system and is all related to motion sickness, sea sickness, and vertigo. You've got these little "rocks" in your ears that tell your brain which way is down, and respond to inertial forces due to acceleration.

Now, your brain also uses visual clues, naturally using your surroudings as a reference frame. When you're inside an elevator, you experience some little inertial "blips", which the balance system detects. But your visual reference frame doesn't agree that you're moving.

The result of that is motion sickness and related. If you go into space, once in free fall, you're gonna be weightless and you'll get "space sickness", until you adapt. The "vomit comet" is a training thing which first introduces one to longer than momentary weightlessness.

332 Jake,

You're standing in an elevator. It drops. There is no force countering gravity on you. You are briefly weightless, or weigh much less than you normally do, until the elevator reaches it's normal speed. Which will happen very quickly.

When you go up, you will be briefly feel more than 1g, as you must be accelerated upwards against gravity.

If you jump off a building, you'll be in free fall briefly, until air resistance becomes appreciable, which happens fairly quickly, IIRC.

When you jump up and down, you usually don't get that funny feeling, because your visual input agrees with your balance system that you are moving.

337 Shibumi's Sunday Night Confession.

Please do not think too poorly of me.

In 2015, I quit a gig where I was on retainer. I'm not upset I quit; it was the right thing to do, and I got to tell the boss who was the biggest problem exactly what I thought. That was satisfying.

BTW, I have excellent verbal skills and took debate in high school and college. They do not have those skills.

Because we're in the same industry, I was required to have contact with them last year. It was horrible for problem boss, who sounded like he was having a breakdown when I had to talk to him.

Fast forward to this past summer/ fall. I have a fairly physically demanding part-time summer gig. It was the summer of sciatica and bursitis. Then... we found out this fall, the venue was closing. Did I mention my car now has a cardiologist?

Well, the week after Christmas, I sent the idiots a note saying that I would be available to do freelance work for them, and that since we'd have minimal contact, we would be unlikely to have the same issues we had in the past.

"The Thing(1982)" is actually better than the book "Who Goes There"... which takes some doing, though it's a close call. "Full Metal Jacket" is better than "The Short Timers".

Other sad songs?
(it's Mr Bojangles, if you didn't already guess)*

About 45 years ago my parents took me to see Sammy Davis Jr. at a theater in the round place. I will never forget his rendition of that song. It was superb. I was only about 15 and the mannerisms, the way he did the song with line breaks - almost speaking it - the oh so natural dance steps...Sammy made me really feel what it was like to be as old as I am now.

what is your Dead Lift?


Pro tip:
you want to grow old peacefully?

get strong, Rippetoe Strong

all the ailments of old people , other than memory, are lack of strength issues

Posted by: Original Jake at January 09, 2017 12:02 AM (jrFgU)




Last few years, my dead lift has been an 80 lb. bundle of roofing shingles, which are tough to wrangle, cause they're flexible, lack a handle, are clumsy to carry up a ladder, and leave ya painful at the end of the day.

After that skylight fall a year ago September, my right shoulder is compromised. I've built it back up to where I can sling 50 to 70 lb. pieces of luggage, repeatedly. But hurt at the end of the day.

My core is still strong, my balance, arm strength and leverage across my frame are well above standard. And I have off-the-chart hand strength, even now.

My legs are still in great shape. Ladders will do that for ya. Back in High School, I could max out the leg press on the Universal machine. 950 lb. And I weighed 155 at the time.

Riding bicycles constantly and everywhere, all over the hills in San Diego, CA tend to put some legs on you. And, I've stayed in shape pretty much my whole life.

I'll get my 38 in. waist back down to 34", and be very happy.

I wear a 48 regular suit, and even if I lose down to 190, that'll likely only drop to a 44 at the smallest. Likely stay at 46. Shirt is 18 neck, 33-1/2 sleeve. I have to buy 'em with 34 sleeves, and get 'em taken up a bit to fit just right.

Bicycling is my best all around workout. I need to get me one, again.

Btw, James Arness was hired only after John Wayne turned the role down and recommened Arness.

it would be totally worth it.


I don't think they sell tickets to those things. But, from what I understand, they need to keep the seats full so that when the camera pans over the audience, you aren't seeing empty seats. IIRC they either use volunteers or paid people to sit in a seat when one of the actors leaves to go onstage or for a potty break.

Some of the area is still used, IIRC. Also, I believe there are plans for other training in Poland as well.

542 Judge Dredd is a poor man's Demolition Man.

Today I was going to watch Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Instead I watched Army of Darkness.

The similarities between Jones and Ash seem obvious now. They don't have virtues, and they can be horrible or obnoxious. But they have standards that will contrast with the environment. They are a nemesis to evil not because they are good or smart, but because they are tenacious and hard to kill. They weather mischief and produce their own above the environment.

These qualities work to benefit Raiders and Crusades, but are campy in Temple of Doom. The camp in Army of Darkness is off the charts, but of course that's why I like it. For Ash to go into a pit to face evil incarnate, and for the encounter to immediately devolve into WWF antics is the greatest thing for anyone who's twelve at heart.

The ice machine is worse. Trust me.

When I worked at the convenience store, every night at closing I'd heat water to boiling and clean the fountain heads on the soda dispenser, as well as the back and the tray. They get nasty in a hurry unless you do it.

But there are parts of the ice machine that are basically unreachable without pulling the entire device apart. Slime mold builds up badly in there. Which is why most places lease the things and just replace them after a while.

580 The battle over "bated" vs "baited" is likely lost, anyway. The form of bate used there is obsolete and survives only in this familiar "bated breath" idiom, which was The Bard's handiwork, as so many are.

It's a short form of "abate", dropping the unstressed syllable, so one could say "abated breath".

The verb "bate" also describes birds flapping their wings to try to fly off after a scare.

And someone wrote a poem about a cat with baited breath. The cat ate cheese so that its breath would attract the mice. The cat truly had baited breath.

Audie Leon Murphy (20 June 1925 - 28 May 1971) was one of the most decorated American combat soldiers of World War II, receiving every military combat award for valor available from the U.S. Army, as well as French and Belgian awards for heroism. Murphy received the Medal of Honor for valor demonstrated at the age of 19 for single-handedly holding off an entire company of German soldiers for an hour at the Colmar Pocket in France in January 1945, then leading a successful counterattack while wounded and out of ammunition.

Of course, if one stops and thinks about it, the term "baited breath", except in your cat example, is sort of meaningless. But "bated" breath, meaning one's breath is held, makes sense in the context in which it is usually used.

But I guess many people have never seen it in print.

Most of the ones I see are dead in the road, and I always figured the must have fallen off the power line while crossing the road.

We'd stopped to talk for a moment when there was a Thud! and right beside us, close enough to touch without taking a step, was a crippled squirrel. It had just fallen out of a tree and busted itself up. It disappeared a few hours later, I figure one of the local predators got it.

597 We had a goldendoodle that would go out during storms and come in soaking wet to bring us baby squirrels that had been blown out of their nests. Did he hear them?

We would take them to a woman who had the resources and knowledge to raise them until they could be released.

598 "Hoist(ed) with his own petard" is another one of those idioms that came from The Bard, and no one hardly knows what that means. Many say "hoisted on his own petard".

599 So, I actually read the almost-600 comments.

Sometimes I wonder why I do it (OCD aside), but there's community news (cthu, pookysgirl, et al) I'm glad to catch.

Hard to comment when far behind, though. Like...

Golden globes... I was gonna mention that kbdabear swimwear pics provided all the golden globes we need, but someone beat me to that, sorta, with a similar reference of Sophia Loren. Ah, well, no great miss.

Enjoyed the "Gunsmoke" review.

In the "remake was better" department, there's A Christmas Carol. No, not that one. The other one. No, the other other one....

Substitute "Frankenstein" or "Dracula" in there.

And with that dreadful dump of collected "thoughts," I'm checking out for the night.

Play nice, avoid mice, and crossing the road look both ways twice.

Perhaps the Bard meant a fart joke. When I was younger, I
always thought a petard was a nautitcal term, like a halyard.

But no, I later learned a petard was a short-fused, directionaly shaped black powder charged bomb, placed against an enemy's castle wall or door. To be hoist by one's own petard meant being blown up by your own incompetence!

Similarly, "less" vs. "fewer", which is also a frequent sportscaster mistake.

You have fewer countable things, and less of an uncountable thing. The losing quarterback did not throw "less touchdowns" than the winning one.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R74uBcHWOgY

A wise man and A fool
Who should serve
And who should rule
Everything happens as it should
So Take a look around
And ask yourself
Do I see nothing good
All you worldly wizards
In Your ragged finery
Never having nothing to say
What will you do
What will become of you
When your magic fades away
Getting by by staying high
And Waiting for the light to come
To save us from damnation God sent his only son

Should be about any day now."

She has to finish her movie about how Trump poisoned the water in Flint, Michigan and killed all the the kids there. Then she is packing her bags.

Hopefully things get worked out.

698 "This man is slightly unhinged, if I can say that, and he's a malignant narcissist. He cares very much about what people think of him."

Guess who this quote is about and who said it and win a free trip to the EMT.

She's focused and has a plan.

I'm rooting for her. The pink hair and cluelessness is cute.

701 Whomever coined the description of Meryl Streep as "Rich Little with tits" was spot on. I am so fucking tired of pampered, illiterate children pretending that they're Hans or Sophie Scholl.

704 And just BTW, in case anyone didn't mention it, someone upthread mentioned the Bogie Maltese Falcon script as being from the pen of novelist Dashiell Hammett. Not true - the script was actually by John Huston.

713 One of the most aggravating thing about the ABCD listers and the news speakers regarding their NeverTrumpism is the hypocrisy behind it. They were perfectly content with rubbing elbows, invitations to family functions, taking Trumps money, hells bells even taking photos with Trump, all with two thumbs up and 'what a great guy' prior to his election.

Now all this... vitriol. I know rich and powerful people have a different set of societal games they play, but how on earth do they walk any of the bullshit back after all this? Do they expect the Trump family to forgive and forget?

Worse yet, they destroy Trump, what signal have they sent to the opposition the next round? Could get messy.

714 I dislike the woman rolling her eyes comment. If a woman is so into showing her contempt for her husband, it bleeds over into all aspects of their life and will make for a miserable marriage.
