Overnight Open Thread (10 Feb 2017)

OK morons, we have some celestial happenings tonight with the Snow Moon lunar eclipse and Comet 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdusakova at its closet approach. You'll probably need binoculars to find the comet. As for the lunar eclipse, well it already happened by the time this gets posted.

Rioters

Yes. FBI now investigating identities of Berkeley rioters. They do need to crack down hard on these anarchists.

If they follow the money trail, perhaps it'll lead to George Soros. What to do about George Soros.

Amazon

I wouldn't think that this would be wise for a company to do. Amazon takes victory lap for its role in halting Trump's travel ban. Guess I'll look to alternatives when able.

The Devil Went Down To Georgia White Trash Washing Machine Cover

Butterflies

Trump wall could harm butterfly's migration. How tall do they think this wall is going to be?

The Barrel vs DC Roommate

This will make you morons appreciate the barrel. Roommate wanted: no alcohol, no meat, no pets, oh and you can't be a Trump supporter.

Growler Ball 2016

Unhinged

Go ahead, keep this asinine behavior up. Principal says Trump is worse than 9/11 terrorist attacks. Really? Are you effin' kidding me??

What's Your Song?

Unique service that presses the ashes of a loved one into a playable vinyl record. So what song would you use if you did this?

B-2 Libya Strike

To Libya and back: Inside a stealth bomber strike against ISIS.

Doctor, Doctor - The WHO

Doctor, there's something wrong with me
My health is not all that it used to be
My heart is out of beat, I got chokers on my feet
My eyesight's getting dimmer, I can't see

Doctor thanks for seeing me today, I'm glad,
I've got every sickness there is to be had
I had whooping cough last month
And today I've got the mumps
And tomorrow I'll catch chicken pox as well.

Doctor doctor doctor make me well
I've not got long to go now I can tell
Doctor doctor doctor make me well
I've not got long to go I can tell
I've not got long to go I can tell

Those pills I took have no effect at all
Just the other day I had a nasty fall
And I think I broke my jaw when it hit the kitchen floor
And I'm shrinking last week I was five foot four I've been getting shivers lately, is it flu?
I know the bug is going round, what can I do?
It's about to pick on me, I've still got the other three
Do you think I caught smallpox I'd get flu?

Do you think it's time that I made out my will?
I'll leave everything to you to pay my bill
Just how long is there to go
Please tell me I want to know
But on second thoughts don't tell me, I'm too ill.

45 Can some of the NeverTrumps -- because a lot of the posters on here are still hard core NeverTrumps, as shown by Twitter feeds -- please explain to me how y'all can be 100% laughably wrong about Trump all through the primaries (he won't win a primary! he won't win the nomination! he won't get to 1250 in a floor vote!) and the GE (he'll lose in a landslide to Hillary! he has no path to 270!) and as President (his SCOTUS pick will be just as bad as Hillary's! He won't keep 1 of his campaign promises!) have NO SHAME or self-awareness to admit you've been dead wrong and instead continue to attack Trump and believe every unsourced rumor the NYT or WaPo prints? (newest one being tweeted by Gabe & NumbersMuncher is Maggie Haberman - the woman at NYT who *started* the fake "Trump throws baby out of rally" story -- saying that the Trump staff is in "misery").

Seriously, can NeverTrumps just not face the fact that they have lost all credibility and they no longer have anything to say about Trump worth hearing or are they just plain dumb? Did your failure to get Hillary elected shatter your cognitive dissonance and send you into a spiral of psychosis?

Thanks in advance for your response.

I had one hell of an idiotic day today. Last night, I needed to go to town. Jumped in my Crown Vic and there was a low tire pressure warning light on. I didn't even know it had that.

Got out and sure enough, the right rear tire was nearly flat. It was still standing up, but just barely. So, I go in the truck. I get back and pump the tire up with the air tank where it was sitting. Light didn't immediately go out, and I had to read up and learn the thing must be moving at 20MPH+ to reset.

Well, this morning it was back nearly flat again. So time to get the thing in my shop and see what's wrong. But there were two tractors in the way, and both had dead batteries, big 4DLTs, and both old and shot. One will charge up a little, but the other was dead, dead, dead JIm. And then I discover the key won't turn. The ignition tumbler thing is seized up somehow.

So that takes over an hour just to get room to drive the car in. I get it in there, get the wheel off, and find a nail. It was long with a small head, and I can't see how it stood up enough to puncture the tire.

So I get my plug tool, the little reamer thing to ream out a hole, and the other doohickey to put those stringy plugs in.

But my plugs were too big for the hole -- I was all out of the small ones. Hole just won't stretch and gape enough to take the plug, so I have to go to town and get some more little plugs.

And by the time I get it fixed, it's past 5PM. I used to be able to do something like that in a few minutes. But this damned RA has made me worthless. I ain't worth a shit anymore. And my knees are now killing me. The spirit is willing but the flesh is shot.

Well, I'm already halfway there, but now I'll be all the way there because I need to have a minor outpatient surgical procedure. I made the appointment yesterday, and I got a call from the hospital today informing me that they've checked with my insurance company and I'll be on the hook for $2K out of pocket just for use of the operating room for, like, 45 minutes. And I have a pretty good insurance plan! The receptionist at the surgeon's office was thrilled when I told her what plan I'm on. Thrilled!

There will be other expenses, too. Those will be billed separately.

Bah! Remind me never to agree to surgery again, would you guys?

114 From Drudge: Junkie Dolphins

In what can only be described as a youngster doing the 'puff, puff, pass', West Australian dolphins may be using blowfish - or 'blowies' - to get high, scientists have found.

. . . .

She said that in Australia, scientists had seen juveniles mouthing blowies in the Leschenault estuary in WA's South West and a sub-adult dolphin carrying an inflated blowie for a few hours in the Kimberley.

Blowies have a lethal toxin called tetrodotoxin, present in their skin, flesh and internal organs.

If consumed, this toxin can be deadly to predators, including humans.

. . . .

According to the documentary, small doses of the toxin have a narcotic effect and the program considered it as recreational drug use by dolphins.

Of course, the second client hired someone to do what I do full time in their Europe office last year, and they had to let her go she was so bad.

The are due neither respect or obedience as they are making the law an ass.

The states in the Texas case to stop Obama from granting amnesty to a bunch of people had to show how they would be specifically and immediately harmed. But the 9th's reasoning seems to be "hey look... squirrel". TRO granted.

I was vehemently opposed to Trump in the primaries but voted for him, the nominee of my party, in the general election. It was actually an easy thing to do given that Hillary Clinton was at the top of the Democratic ticket. I'm guessing most who felt as I did voted for him, as well.

What I'm saying is the number of NeverTrumpers is negligible, a few holdouts, enough people to fill Bill Kristol's living room, with a few left over to populate the offices of the National Review and maybe George Will's garage.

Trump won. Technically, we won since we voted for him. So why don't you give it a rest?

Posted by: Joe Biden at February 10, 2017 10:46 PM (aZq03)

My point exactly... when conservatives sue, they have to follow the rules and show how they would suffer specific monetary damages from a government action.


Apparently, liberals can sue with no more cause than the government action hurt their feelings because it is for sure no state suffers monetary damages from the feds NOT flooding them with extra aliens that cost money. Same with private companies. Even if they hired someone who was coming from a terrorist state on a visa, they have options like hiring someone else OR allowing telecommuting for their "employee" that would limit any "loss".

The House of Lords has long had this motion in its rules that is made as "I move the noble lord be no longer heard." That translates to "sit down and shut up". It takes just a simple majority to pass, and is used sparingly when some Lord Fuckstick is rambling on incessantly. When it is employed against somebody, the usually stomp out of the chamber in a huff.

I used to rise above the libs at my site, pre-Trump, but now I punch back. I don't always do it , but considering the source (which I know and you don't), I thought I'd ask for help.

Yes, I was being sincere, since you had asked.

Punching back on twitter doesn't do any good. Save it for punching them in real life, since that day is coming. Was just my 2 cents.

playing with trolls is fun: it was one of the most enjoyable part of Usenet, back before the Feds made the ISP ban the whole thing because a handful of froups, out of the tens of thousands froups over all, had kiddie pr0n.

instead of using them to catch freaks, they cut everyone off from a fun and useful resource.

96 I've been an Amazonian since they gave away coffee cups with each
order over like five bucks or something; I can't even remember.



And it's a 50 mile round trip for me now to get to Wal-Mart, 3 hour
drive to anything else, so I use Amazon daily. And we use the fuck outta
Prime.. music, movies, you name it.



But if this is the way they're going, I am done.



It will hurt me far more than them, that's the bitch about boycotting huge companies.



But at some point you have to say enough already.

UPS driver won my admiration the other day. I was a block away when I saw my neighbor's little dog had gotten away from her and was running loose in the street.

356 What I think about Amazon ---

I don't have to boycott 100%. All I have to do is buy elsewhere whenever I have a sane alternative --- and I usually do.
I use their site to browse a lot but, when it comes time to buy, I look elsewhere.

That cuts my Amazon usage down by about 80%.

If anyone doesn't want to hear me whine some more about this stupid RA, just skip over this.

It's something else. My knees were killing me, but as I sat here at the computer desk, the knees had subsided, but then right as I sat here, a big ol' knot popped up on the back of my right hand, near the wrist.

It's all those little bones and the joints there, whatever they're called. Using those little tire plug tools, which are little T-handle things, one a reamer to enlarge and buff up the sides of the hole, and the other too, which you use to actually stick the plug, I aggravated those little joints.

It was delayed reaction. With the swelling, the tendons are tight and make it painful to move the fingers, and they're even drawing up a little bit.

Now, that will go down some time tomorrow. I could help it along by taking a dose of prednisone, but I don't like to use that unless I absolutely have to.

And that is what just a little workout of the hands will do using simple tools with this damnable RA.

453 @430,
Take the prednisone. Sometimes, you have to. I need it to keep my O2 levels up. I was managing okay without it, then had my esophagus get plugged with supplements and wound up in the ER. Without anything, my O2 levels cratered. I managed to get some prednisone from Vanatu and I can breathe again.

It's depressing but what can you do? You need to function.

454 When the dog freaks out for no reason and goes hither and yon at breakneck speed we call it "the zoomies"

Posted by: browndog at February 10, 2017 11:28 PM (bGMOs)


For us, zoomies are when we let one or more of the Borzoi out for a run in the (very large) yard. PF goes up to see an 80-pound dog racing toward you at 30 mph. The rule in that case is, don't move.

Watching two or more run can be grand entertainment. Like fighter pilots, they pursue, vector and evade. Bad, however, when a puppy uses you as a pick.

Don't have RA. Mine is osteo. Had surgery on both wrists so far. Back and neck issues from rucks and some hard landings in my youth. Tramadol has helped a lot.

Spit in the ocean, so to speak. A BB gun vs a .50 BMG.

I've been taking NSAIDs of various flavors for nearly 15 years, and it's gotten a little rough on the GI tract, which they will do. Right now, I take Aleve, but I can't take too much of a dose.

RA is to regular arthritis like pneumonia is to bronchitis. Well, osteoarthritis can be pretty bad, not to minimize the severe cases.

You should read a bit before you spout such drivel. If the flyovers went asymmetrical warfare on your ass, you'd be screaming for mercy within months.

Take a look at Matt Bracken's essay, "What I saw at the Coup" if you want an idea of how it would play out.

Politicians and their guardians don't like dying.

We flyovers don't have to storm NYC. No point. NYC depends on goods and services provided by the flyovers. No supplies, NYC becomes a jungle where the strong prey on the weak. NYC would implode within days if the supply chain was interrupted for any length of time.

464 Thing about Nordstrom's is, will the facts ever be available? I mean, dispositive facts about the merchandise line question.


I have zero knowledge of the retail industry, or Nordie's specific situation, but it seemed odd when I saw a claim that sales of Ivanka's line had declined 10% (presumably over the last year, or several quarters?).


Just hard to imagine sales falling, given what was going on otherwise (i.e., the campaign).

I believe in you're in some aspect of econometrics, economic modeling, forecasting, etc.


By your lights, or those of the people you work with, the field in general, has there been any degradation in the integrity of macroeconomic data you use?


There was that very odd problem with the unemployment rate estimate the last quarter before you-know-who's re-election in 2012; there has also been a rather palpable disconnect between "experienced" inflation at the consumer level vs. the CPI-U (esp. 2009-2013 or so).


That sort of thing. I figure that those like you who use this data in a very professional, daily sense would have an acute sense of any shenanigans.


I'm deplorably slow to warm to black helicopter-ish things of any flavor, but macroeconomic numbers *did* start to raise an eyebrow the last 8 years. Your informed take much appreciated.

Days? More like hours.

We have storms here in red Virginia that knock power out for anywhere from 12 hours to 7-10 days, and that is in suburban areas. Everyone just gets used to it and relies on your emergency supplies. Those in the rural areas have much much larger emergency stocks.

Anytime the power goes out in NYC, they are rioting within 8 hours. No emergency supplies equals pandemonium.

508 Wasn't aware that Chelsea's hubby had shut down his fund - in addition to the CGI shutting its doors.


Hedge funds so shut down pretty frequently (um, obviously, esp. the bad ones).


But the CGI closure, how quickly it happened after the election - I guess it's a good sign my mind can still boggle at the crudeness, the brazenness, the transparent audacity of the corruption the Clintons and their enablers brought to the highest levels of US governance.


Speaking of which, everyone is rightly spun around the axle of the latest, extravagant lawlessness of the judiciary (not least myself - I think it's a much bigger deal than most seem to) - but once Sessions and the administration have dealt with their top 10 herculean tasks, I think it's *imperative* that the massive, unprecedented criminality of the she-Clinton and her gang (Espionage Act, Public Records Act, relevant anti-corruption statutes, obstruction of justice on all) be fully investigated, and prosecuted.

The high population density urban areas have two main needs. Keeping the food flowing in, and the shit flowing out. If that was stopped, you'd be amazed at how fast it would go to hell.

Hell, around here, if they mention the word snow or ice, there will be a run on milk and bread at the grocery stores. I mean, the bread and milk shelves will be cleaned out in no time. That temporary demand spike can clean out the inventory in no time.

Posted by: qdpsteve at February 11, 2017 12:57 AM (u8kLQ)

571 I believe in you're in some aspect of econometrics, economic modeling, forecasting, etc.





By your lights, or those of the people you work with, the field in
general, has there been any degradation in the integrity of
macroeconomic data you use?





There was that very odd problem with the unemployment rate estimate
the last quarter before you-know-who's re-election in 2012; there has
also been a rather palpable disconnect between "experienced" inflation
at the consumer level vs. the CPI-U (esp. 2009-2013 or so).





That sort of thing. I figure that those like you who use this data
in a very professional, daily sense would have an acute sense of any
shenanigans.





I'm deplorably slow to warm to black helicopter-ish things of any
flavor, but macroeconomic numbers *did* start to raise an eyebrow the
last 8 years. Your informed take much appreciated.

Posted by: rhomboid at February 11, 2017 12:17 AM (QDnY+)

That would be a great big yes... the value of BLS data has degraded significantly since the beginning of the great recession. Some of that is the result of explicit government manipulation of the data (GDP figures since 2013 are a good example of this) and some is a result of cocked up government policies (the unemployment rate is a good example of this).
I have had to find proxy variables for several bits of macroeconomic data that has become useless for forecasting purposes. For instance, I have dropped the unemployment rate as an variable in my modeling for TANF expenditures and substituted the 24 and 60 month TANF roll attrition rates.
While I do not work a great deal with the CPI-U, I will say in general that a lot of the values in that measure are "adjusted" for the estimated increased value of goods that increase in quality (electronic goods are a good example of this). Those adjustments are VERY subjective and therefore easy to manipulate.

A friend of mine in N. Indiana had an outdoor wood-fired hot tub. In the deep winter friends would sit in this steaming tub and drink. Every now and then, someone would hop out and run down the street, with a trail of steam behind them. It looked for all the world as though the guy was on fire.

Your best bet is probably state government (specifically the budget or regulatory shop therein)... if you can get out of Cali before you begin your job search, I would highly suggest it. It would suck to want to slaughter kill your coworkers because they are all socialists.
Budget department need people who can do forecasts for all sorts of things that they need to budget for... I do forecasts for public safety drivers of the budget (prison and jail populations, court expenditures) and DSS drivers of the budget (foster care and adoption subsidy payments, TANF expenditures, etc) and I LOVE it (even when I don't love the explicitly liberal atmosphere in my office).

Right now I'm hoping to go back to the company that I just left after graduation. They have a large office in San Diego, and are a large defense contractor. My goal is to spend maybe two years working for them, pay off some debts, scrape together some cash, and then look at what my options are. Either Ph.D. programs, or possibly another masters in applied math.

Either that or try to find work elsewhere in the country. I don't want to work in DC, but my background means that most of the stuff I'd be qualified for is in NoVA.

620 Palpatine, sadly, my only banya experience was back in the late 70s. But it was "real". Leningrad, not far from Leningrad State U., where I spent a semester.


Almost the only hot water we encountered the whole time - VERY hot.


Birch branches. Was actually very nice. Got take a very hot shower, do the heat, another shower, scratch with the birch.


One thing I recall was the striking difference in body types. We Americans were a fairly scrawny to average lot of college-age guys. The Soviet guys there were older, and fairly brawny and built. Not good, in terms of Cold War male demonstration/intimidation dynamics.


But the girls had an even more interesting time. The Russian women were shocked at how skinny they were. It being Leningrad, at the time in question, some of the women fairly aggressively scolded the girls - "you have nothing for the bad times!". Doubtless some of these women had lived through the blockade as children - unimaginable what they might have seen and lived through.


These ladies had, shall we say, "plenty" for the bad times, ahemm. But it was a fairly powerful sort of working woman heft, not obesity.


Fantastic time.

I actually have had some contact with my counterparts in Cali... Mostly, they seemed enamored of the the same macroeconomic general equilibrium models that the Romers used and which so spectacularly failed to predict unemployment going forward from 2009.
While the seemed to value the theoretical and academic models even when those models were proven to not accurately predict much, the forecasters themselves seemed OK. In a place like Cali, though, anyone allowed near the actual budget is likely to be of the same mind as the liberal decision makers.

Hmm. Green or kidney?

I'm usually able to mnemonically-grade based on female tennis players, but between those two that doesn't work either. I end up being confused with Romanians. And Czechs.

What a mess.

Got him a matching shashka and kinzhal for Christmas, and per my angel, a day doesn't pass without him at least trying his hand at flankirovat.

What's he like? This is close, except he has no mustache:

683 first time I ever saw this grim, imposing man smile was when #1 daughter showed him, in his back yard, how to swing a shashka and then #2 daughter and #1 son started clapping and chanting an old song for him.

Took me a year just to be allowed into the house with him, but two weeks ago, he called me 'son'. Yes, i have hopes.....

At Tet, my #1 son wanted to dance for the angel-clan - he has a crush on one of my angel's sisters, I can tell - and before he began, with his sisters and me chanting the tune for him, he drew his blade, turned, and saluted the Colonel before he began. You could have bowled me over with an anorexic - the boy couldn't have done better if he'd been trained and drilled for weeks.

Heh! A little slice of America. My ancestors were of the Anglo/Saxon, Germanic, Celtic variety. So I had nothing to add.

The "joys" of working about 14 years of mid shifts are I don't sleep at night anymore. I'm off right now so I decided to cook red beans and rice and added beef, onions, carrots, celery, broccoli, Hungarian Wax Peppers, mushrooms, diced tomato's. So, sort of Jambalaya-ish. Used the last of the cajun seasoning and creole seasoning when the cajun stuff ran out. Also pepper. The ole condo smells like what I cooked and thats a good thing.

720 Nope, S and CB. Just a football fan ever since I was a kid watching my local PBS station show 1 hour edited games back when I was a preteen in the '60s. The Barclay's Premier League is the most fun to watch. I've been rooting for United for a couple of decades now. The '99 Treble winning team was a highlight for me. Before the Champions' League moved their final to Saturday (for more eyeballs), at work I used to put in for half a day off in January once I found out on what Wednesday the final would be played in May. Yeah, I even had tickets to World Cup games at the Meadowlands in '94; I put my name on the list in '92. I used to go to the Meadowlands to watch the Cosmos play all the time. I even watched the Cosmos play in 'The Soccer Bowl' (the old NASL final) at RFK in '80 before I even moved to NYC, travelling from Norfolk, VA to do so.

I like football, the real one, which makes me a heretic in these parts.
