Monday Overnight Open Thread (3/20/17) Spring Edition

Good-bye Winter!!! Hello Spring!!!!

Our history lesson for the day. On this day in history, March 20th, 1854 The Republican Party is founded.

In Ripon, Wisconsin, former members of the Whig Party meet to establish a new party to oppose the spread of slavery into the western territories. The Whig Party, which was formed in 1834 to oppose the “tyranny” of President Andrew Jackson, had shown itself incapable of coping with the national crisis over slavery.


Now they run against an issue and when elected forget what they ran on. Joni Ernst, one tough broad. NOT.


Ernst may not be up for re-election until 2020, but to the rest of the GOP 2018 isn't that far away.


Quotes of The Day


Quote I

I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts. John Locke


Quote II

People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring. Rogers Hornsby

Quote III

Democracy... while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide. John Adams


Over the weekend, we lost a Rock 'n Roll icon. Chuck Berry passes away at age 90. Did you know Chuck Berry was a paid Beach Boy?

The 1963 hit single listed Beach Boy Brian Wilson as the sole composer of the track, but the melody was a complete replication of Chuck Berry’s “Sweet Little Sixteen.”

For his part, Wilson denied any intentional wrongdoing. "I just took 'Sweet Little Sixteen' and rewrote it into something of our own," Wilson told the Los Angeles Times of the incident in 2015.


Guess what tomorrow is? Besides Tuesday, it is also National Common Courtesy Day.

You Lefties ought to participate. You might even get a trophy out of the deal. By the way, this isn't courtesy.


Quite the week for Chelsea Clinton. Named to the board of directors at Expedia. And over paid for the book, 'She Persisted'.

These book companies must have huge slush funds to pay off politicians and their spawn.


NSFW Meet the $6,000 woman. Love Dolls from Japan. NSFW

Japan’s oldest and largest “love doll” maker Orient Industry, has been producing silicone love dolls since 1977, and has seen there is a trend for intimate relationships with silicone dolls in Japan. The Orient Industry’s factory produces approximately 500 life size hand-made per year, and one doll, costs up to 600,000JPY (approx. 6,000 USD), takes four to five weeks to be finished. Originally, the company was marketing love dolls for disabled people, and the company continues to support the community by providing discounts and consulting their sexual urges


There is a special place in hell for certain doctors in the Netherlands. Euthanasia or Murder?

Doctors in the Netherlands and Belgium have also routinely euthanized patients with depression. Now, a law to “legalize euthanasia for perfectly healthy people who hold ‘a well-considered opinion that their life is complete’” is being considered in the Netherlands.

Are we that far behind here in the U.S.A.?


Six side effects to legal marijuana.

Problems with legal pot? Who knew?


The ONT Musical Interlude


March 20, 1969, John Lennon married Yoko Ono in Gibraltar. They spent their honeymoon in Amsterdam campaigning for an international "Bed-In" for peace. They planned another "Bed-in" in the United States, but were denied entry. The couple then went to Montreal, and during a "Bed-in" at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel recorded ‘Give Peace a Chance’. Lennon also detailed this period in The Beatles ‘The Ballad of John and Yoko’, recorded by Lennon and McCartney on April 14, 1969. via thisdayinmusic.com



March 20, 1961, Elvis Presley started a two week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with 'Surrender', his fifth No.1 of the 60's. It also made No.1 in the UK. The song was based on the 1911 Italian song, 'Return To Sorrento.' via thisdayinmusic.com

The State of California just made it tougher to keep weeds under control. Weed killer Round Up deemed to be cancer causing.

Several other environmental health regulators from around the world, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), previously concluded that glyphosate has "low acute toxicity."

Glyphosate is used in more than 750 agricultural, household and forestry products worldwide, and its use is only predicted to increase now that Monsanto has released genetically modified "Roundup Ready" seeds that are resistant to it. Environmental advocates hope that this new report will force health regulators to take a closer look at Roundup and its possible effects on humans and the planet.

In 60 years of robots, only one industry has been eliminated.

Or at least they did. For years I’ve heard my vocation is on the list of jobs where robots are already replacing humans (along with shepherds, telemarketers, and bartenders). But is that really true? A working paper by James Bessen of Boston University School of Law argues that occupations that use computers grow faster, not slower and that computer automation is not a source of significant overall job losses.


Ripon, WI may have been the home of the Republican Party. But, Latrobe, PA is the birthplace of something sweet and yummy, The Banana Split.


MLB spring training is happening. Baseball season is right around the corner. NCAA winter sports tournaments are taking place. The NHL playoff push is on. So what's new in the NFL? It seems Colin Kaeperdick Kaepernick is not liked in the NFL.

“Third, the rest genuinely hate him and can’t stand what he did [kneeling for the national anthem]. They want nothing to do with him. They won’t move on. They think showing no interest is a form of punishment. I think some teams also want to use Kaepernick as a cautionary tale to stop other players in the future from doing what he did.”

Dogs in the U.K face deadly disease. Alabama Rot.


The United States is facing a shortage. Police departments across the country face officer shortage.

Numerous police departments around the country are desperately losing manpower with decreasing numbers of officers and recruits. Law enforcement is becoming less of a desirable career choice due to diminishing pay, high risk, and of course a recent bad rap — a trend that could put public safety at risk, say policing experts.
The current shortage afflicts police forces from large metropolitan hubs to rural towns.

Summer: mow lawn ONCE A WEEK FOR MONTH AFTER MONTH. And weed. And fertilize. And trim the shrubs.

25 I will say this about legal pot: I'm in favor.

I've been really really drunk.

I've been really really stoned.

I was far safer stoned than I was drunk. I never blacked out when stoned. I never got sick when I was stoned. I never was out of control when I was stoned.

Are there issues? Are there side effects and consequences? Damn straight. Such is life. But I can't be intellectually honest, I can't be ok with booze, while being against pot.

I've flipped on the issue.

66 BCochran1981 - Credible Hulk,
I always felt the same, but what holds me back is that the people I know who are dead set agains legalization of pot are people who had alcoholic parents. Their concern is that if pot is legalized, problems with its over-use will become as common as alcoholism.
When I was in college I noticed that people who used it on a daily basis tended to become useless bums. As getting stoned regularly becomes more common we'll have more people living off welfare and disability.

I don't know if Malkin has either an ownership stake or a management role with CRTV. My impression is not. I know there is a money guy who backed it, and Levin is the Editor. I think Malkin's involvement is the same as Steyn's was: as an employee/contractor.

193 Here's the poop on legal weed. It's legal around here to open a shop and sell all sorts of things. They have recently taken up all the small shops that were for rent and turned them into pot shops. They pay in cash, because it's still illegal federally, which means massive amounts of cash changing hands. Lessors love them, because, cash, and they don't report it all, naturally. Lots of room for malfeasance. Also, so far at least two shops here have been ripped off massively. The cops are slow to investigate, naturally. Also, the patrons still park two stores down and sneak over when they think nobody is looking.

Employers still make you pee in a cup, and if you blow it? No job. Parents still keep their kids away from those folks, just like they keep them away from smoke shops in general. The Natives here still prefer booze and they still panhandle relentlessly at the big intersections. Pot hasn't changed that one iota.

Honestly, I doubt these shops are seeing any more business than they had before they went legit. And I doubt they are making any more money, but now they pay rent and insurance on top of production costs. I'll reserve judgement for a year, but I doubt 2/3 of them will be extant when I look again.

Finally, Judge Napolitano is not stupid and he's not a fool. He's also not a big fan of Trump, so if someone told him Obama --using a Brit firm--was spying on Trump, it's either solid---or he's being played, which seems unlikely.

I consider this a bad choice. If you're hard up for a decent job today and you can train up to drive a truck quickly, it doesn't matter if it only lasts a few years. You can spend your off time planning your next move while doing the job and making a living. Unless you can afford to be a full time student and think you have a career enabling field of study to pursue, take what is offered and save up as much money as you can in preparation of when you need a cushion to move on to your next gig.

There's some ordinance on the books (originally passed by ballot proposition) that requires anything and everything with cancer causing agents in it to post a notice stating such. The problem is that the values required are so low that the signs are pretty much everywhere, making them largely useless. Go into the supermarket, and there's a sign at each entrance alerting you to the fact that unnamed things inside the store are known to cause cancer.

Since state law conflicts with federal law, and in this case federal law takes precedence, any real estate that is leveraged with an fdic insure bank can have their loan technically called immediately should they lease to the marijuana trade. So you only see pot shops in facilities that are free and clear.

There's a place that has big rigs pull in and unload on my usual path home. I've learned to look ahead when I'm approaching and spot whether a big rig is trying to back into the docks from the street. If I see one, I turn and go around the block.

If I don't turn and go around the block, then there's a good chance I'm going to be stuck waiting for a good ten minutes while the truck tries to get lined up with and pull into the loading dock, all while blocking the street I'm trying to drive down.

352 Chicken fried steak:

Tenderized round steak. Dredge it in flour mixed with some salt and pepper. Pan fry it till cooked well. Remove from pan.

Gravy:

Sprinkle a couple of tablespoons of flour in the pan. If you had a lot of grease, remove some. You want a couple of tablespoons grease to go with the flour. Cook this for a couple of minutes. You don't want it to get too brown. Add milk, maybe a cup, depending on the amount of gravy you want. Stir until the gravy thickens. Add salt and pepper to taste.

I am not a cook but frying things is in my DNA.

------------------------

Probably 60. I don't remember the number off the top of my head, but I suspect you know what you're talking about.

And yeah, it's amusing. A few years ago I was with a group that met up to discuss a bunch of propositions on the ballot that year here in California. One of them was for warning labels for GMOs. The person arguing against the labels pointed out that it would be just like the cancer labels, which are a joke. The guy arguing for the GMOs (who I personally think is a clueless idiot in real life - at one point, he had an actual hammer and sickle as his Facebook avatar) tried to claim in all seriousness that the cancer warnings were useful (and knowing him, he probably sincerely believed every last word that came out of his mouth).

Speaking of plastic bags, I noticed that my local supermarket has plastic bags at the checkout stand again, although they're thicker and heavier than the old ones.

Also, I've told the malathion story here in the past, but it bears repeating. Back when California starting spraying Los Angeles for the Mediterranean Fruit Fly, Los Angeles found out that malathion had been discovered to cause cancer. So they rushed to court to get an order to get the spraying halted.

Unfortunately, they neglected to wait and figure out exactly how likely malathion was to cause cancer. It turned out that ordinary dirt was more likely than the pesticide. Needless to say, the suit didn't succeed.

These malls are not the A level malls, and probably not even the B level malls. These are the malls that have been owned by a union pension fund for years.

The other buildings are usually former fast food places that the chain has moved out of, and the owner just wants someone in there paying rent. These buildings have been paid off for years, and the owners don't mind being paid in cash.

It's when the prosecution gets to toss off the jury anyone who they figure won't vote to convict, and the defense gets to toss off the jury anyone they figure won't vote to acquit.

They've streamlined it a lot here in California. Both sides have to submit a list of questions to the judge beforehand. So no more taking an hour just to question one juror about stuff.

Still doesn't keep them from dismissing a ridiculous number of jurors, though. I had one instance where they had to call in a second group of jurors because they couldn't fill the box even after going through the first (i.e. my) group of jurors. I was the last person from my group before they started questioning people from the second group. And instead of dismissing me outright (given the perfectly true info I gave, the only reason for them to keep me around was if they thought I was going overboard in my info in an attempt to get out of the jury box), the defense attorneys waited around until first thing the next day.

Jerks.

The same thing happened to me. The judge came down and told us that often the accused plea bargains at the last minute. On the plus side, it ends up being a one day thing. And, yes, if you get called take in books or an e-reader.

Posted by: nerdygirl at March 20, 2017 11:59 PM (+lVUW)

412 I didn't survive the voir dire process when the judge asked if anyone had ever accidentally fallen down before. 20 of us in the box, and not one said Yes. So I piped up and said 'of course I've fallen down before, on ice, on wet flooring, off of a badly taken step, etc. But what I can't believe is that NO ONE ELSE on this jury has never fallen down before. Mommy never gave you a swat on the didie and you fell down? Gimme a break here.'

And so the voir dire went on without me.

--------

It's up to the particular judge, but most give each side six peremptories. You can boot up to six without cause.

The reality is that the system is set up to discourage the use of peremptories. They use a method that lets you know in advance who will take the seat of the juror that you bumped. Usually, even if the one in the box is bad, the one who will replace him/her is worse. You wind up just making do.

And that's tonight's lesson on Big Time Trial Lawyering.

It's because for many women the wedding is the end game. Once her fairy tail princess fantasy has been fulfilled, she doesn't have anything to work for. Making her partner happy isn't part of the program anymore, since she already got what she wanted.

443 411 365 I've been on jury duty three or four times, and I never got called once. I just sat there reading books until we got dismissed.
Posted by: rickl

The same thing happened to me. The judge came down and told us that often the accused plea bargains at the last minute. On the plus side, it ends up being a one day thing. And, yes, if you get called take in books or an e-reader.

I got called in January of 2015, they wouldn't allow us to bring any kind of electronic device. The only thing we could bring was a book or newspaper, that's it.

Every day for 3 weeks I had to call after 6pm to find out if we were going in the next day. Here in Virginia, the Friday before MLK Day is also a holiday, so the state government is closed. The Court never told us that they would be closed, and the wife and I had to pass up going to visit my sister that weekend. We could have done it if they had told us that the court was closed.

We finally are given instructions to report, so we come down, sit for 3 hours, and the clerk looks into the room and asks why we are there. Turns out, the two sides had settled the afternoon beforehand and never instructed the court that we weren't needed. The clerk was pissed. One because we had to show up, and two because they had to pay us. The next week we were excused from jury duty for the rest of the month.

447 There was one time I got a summons for jury duty when a bright comet was predicted. I panicked and thought I was going to be sequestered for weeks or something and wouldn't get to see it.

I wrote a letter explaining the whole thing, and explicitly said that I was not trying to get out of jury duty, but was merely requesting a delay until the comet was gone.

I got a form letter saying "Your request for excusal has been accepted." Well, OK then.

Posted by: Notsothoreau at March 21, 2017 12:16 AM (Lqy/e)

As far as we can tell, he's doing very well. The lung cancer? Turned out to be some very odd variety of pneumomia. The thyroid thing remains a mystery, but it's not cancer, so far. They say we should probably have a bunch of it removed, but it's not urgent. We're still on the hook for the biopsies and all the imaging, and it will be a while until we can pay off the $12K the ER spent scaring the shit out of us. Oh well. Obamacare, and all that crap.

He ain't dying. And he does love his little bjers.

Posted by: buzzsaw90 at March 21, 2017 12:27 AM (PqqkK)

470 Here's my take on women who won't put out, or otherwise act like princesses once they are married. There are women who love real men, and then there are women who are afraid of real men, so they marry someone they can boss around. Never works, because women suck at that, and they also suck at having the best judgement when young and hormonal.

Of course, once you get to be my age and have the other hormonal issues... well, that's a seperate issue. But honestly, have you ever met a woman who is happy being the boss in the relationship? I have never. They talk a good line, but inside, not so much.

Then there are men. Some are so whipped by these idiotic women that they don't remember how to be men. Or, they buy into that feminist crap, and have handed over their manhood to some crazy biotch, or worse. Some are just too stupid and self involved to know how to behave, and some are just too beaten down by crazy moms to have a clue.

Some are real men, and know who they are and what they are about. For these men, the silly women need not apply. Or, if they do, they learn quick to wise up. Some men can fix women, and some women can fix men, but only if the men and women are prepared to move forward. Otherwise, the whole thing becomes a disaster.

This is why no-fault divorce is a cultural suicide. If people can't take it seriously, then they make silly choices and do serious damage.

473 429 Regarding beejer bait and switch...

It's because for many women the wedding is the end game. Once her fairy tail princess fantasy has been fulfilled, she doesn't have anything to work for. Making her partner happy isn't part of the program anymore, since she already got what she wanted.

This doesn't just apply to sex, it applies to her physical appearance, how she treats you, how she talks about you to other people, and a whole host of other things.
Posted by: Insomniac - sin valor at March 21, 2017 12:11 AM (0mRoj)

Men are simple creatures, treat them nicely, feed them and sleep with them.

If you've covered these bases I don't think they care if you gain 10 pounds after 25 years.

Not all women are like that.

And never speak badly about your husband. I have friends that obviously are angry with their husband and pick on him when they start drinking. I make her stop. Tell him in private what's bothering you.
Never in public.

476 Since there was a recent high court decision that verdicts can be reversed if a juror had at any time in his/her/xer life held views unacceptable to the Social Justice agenda that the verdict would be nullified.

Possible that stating that a background check could reveal that you once posted a politically incorrect viewpoint on social media could get you excused from jury duty.

At least I hope so

477 Relationships the topic tonight again?

Gonna surprise some of you and just say tonight, instead of waxing nostalgic about the woman that I usually wax nostalgic about...

Been reading some articles at A Voice For Men lately. And I have to say that some of what I read just last night, made me feel better about *not* getting with a woman. Turns out it can buy you some wonderful things, but women can buy you a lot of trouble as well.

In particular, I read these pieces there by Paul Elam:

479 And there is a difference in dating versus having a relationship. I dont know how to date. I got married at 19 and was married for 37 years. Was told not to rush into a new relationship when my husband died but did anyway. We've been together almost nine years. I think we had maybe two dates.

You need to respect each other and never stop courting each other. Disrespect and taking your partner for granted is the kiss of death to a relationship.

507 Miley, thanks.

IMHO AVFM isn't anti-woman, they're just willing to tell the truth about most women and how feminism enables their worst habits and instincts.

For instance, Elam on "hypergamy": it's the hypothesis that women are hardwired to almost always "marry up," i.e. to a man who's wealthier, more accomplished, etc., and that at the same time, women never really stop looking for the ideal man.

But his hypothesis isn't borne of anger against women so much as Elam's beliefs about, I guess, evolutionary psychology; that is, that women are of course hardwired to have as many children, and seek out as much security, as possible. Not an excuse, not a condemnation, just an observation. Elam also acknowledges men are similarly hardwired to "spread their seed" as much as possible.

508 Only served on a jury once. Classic major east coast city drug-related attempted murder/assault case. Took weeks, as the (over-worked) judge had to keep switching cases, interrupting our trial.


Highlights: hang-em'-high older black women jurors who were satisfied they knew the sort of thug the defendant was, stereotypical "nice" young white suburbanite-types, who refused to convict on the attempted murder charge (the defendant and his buddy shot their ex-buddy *13* times, but he lived, paralyzed). Hilarious hearing the black women chastise the white kids for their refusal to convict.


Talked my way out of the 2nd Microsoft anti-trust trial (thank gawd) by mostly-truthfully explaining to Judge Something-Kotelly that I had int'l travel plans commencing the next week.


Most recently was tossed during voir dire in a comically unimpressive courtroom. Medical malpractice case. Both I and another potential juror (a UC professor, to my astonishment) both commented that we didn't find a jury trial an appropriate forum for such cases (judge just looked puzzled, and asked some stupid questions).


Several of us corrected the judge and the defense attorney on terminology at various points. Poor plaintiff's attorney was barely functioning, bumbling around, being helped by the judge and defense just to do her stuff (looked like her first trial).


As I walked out I said to the bailiff "what the hell is going on here?" - he barely suppressed a laugh, but not a smile, shook his head and said "don't ask me!".

509 That's a topic that burns my ass. They totally exist. So many friends of mine got to where I didn't even recognize them because of the women in their life. Every thing that mattered to them went right in the toilet. Musicians, motorcycle dudes, car heads...all gone, stick a fork in them, they're done.

That shit didn't work with me. Oh they tried, but no chick ever had that power over me. I'm their worst nightmare. The man card is like a republic, you have to constantly fight to keep it.

I'd agree with this to a certain point. It's also why women don't like polygamy.

Biologically speaking, a woman's purpose in life is to have children. She also instinctively wants her children to have the best chance for survival. So she wants her children to be the ONLY children a man is supporting.

In today's terms that translates into a monogamous man of certain means. A child of a wealthy man will probably have a better life, better medical care and a chance at a better future than a child of a poor man. Of course, people mess that dynamic up all the time, but from a biological standpoint, I think it's generally true.

However, the concept of looking for someone better after you're married and have kids? Seems like a lot of work to me.

I'm only going from personal experience on this so bear with me.
If I'm very upset with my husband, I need a few minutes to cool off so I can speak rationally. He wants to talk about it immediately. I have to tell him, give me a minute to calm down, then we can discuss whatever the problem is and both of us have calmed down.

I have a hard time understanding the silent treatment for an extended time period.

If someone won't talk to you, how can you come to any sort of resolution? If you approach a woman that's angry and quiet using those techniques I don't see any end to the argument. Just one upping.

I would advise telling the person giving the silent treatment,
I can see you're upset, I'll go for a walk, drive around the block, etc., let you cool off and when you're ready to talk we'll discuss it.

I don't see the other suggestions being very successful.

571 565 And I'm a feminist in the truest sense of the word.

I recognize the differences between men and women.

I celebrate the differences.

I'm also glad to be a woman.

I am strong in ways that a man cannot conceive of.

I am also a woman who will never know what it is like to be a man.

That is my strength.

576 CaliGirl, nothing objectionable there in your 1:09. I agree, cooling off periods are a good idea.

The problem is women-- or men, or ANYBODY-- who prolongs it to the point that it's obviously punishment.

Again, IMHO that's just inhumane. Period.

Elam writes a lot about "high-conflict" women, especially women who are using the courts, kids, and/or their behavior to be extra hurtful during a divorce/child custody case. But the truth is, he could be writing about women *or* men in a lot of different situations.

On second thought, that sounds a bit overly flippant.

My point is that our perspectives will likely change after we pass on. Our mortal lives here on Earth will likely seem as a brief flash in the pan. All the pain and anguish associated with it will seem like brief moments in comparison with the eternity that we'll spend afterwards. And that eternity will be spent at least in part with the friends that we made here during our mortal existence.

Some psychologists refer to this as "hovering" which just as it sounds they suck the person back in for more destruction. BPD types do this quite frequently I understand.

Preach it. The same for men. If you have a friend at work or a social friend, it's OK to relate in private the shortcomings of your partner as long as the conversation will be absolutely confidential. Don't talk down to your spouse, don't guilt trip them, and don't demean or make fun of them.

700 The Republicans really need to learn the lessons of their own history.

The people in DC might think that they are, in a fundamental sense, the party. They see themselves as the brains of the outfit, telling all of the limbs how to move.

What they really are, however, is the tail of the dog. The dog wags the tail, not the other way around.

They don't see the problem here. They think they'll just ignore the issues the voters want to address, and the voters will keep electing them.

They can't fathom that they can be replaced. Starting a new party is difficult, but it can be done, and if the new party addresses the issues the old one won't, the old party isn't long for this world.

We should have split for good after the 2nd Bush run.

Read that again, out loud, and then stop and think what you just said out loud.

You mess with one, you get us all. We share some basic traits as 'ettes. We give two shits about people, particularly our men.

We don't care much for men who propose to be weiners and can't stop waving it around in public, while crying "why me, o Lord?"

If you can't find a decent woman, woe to you, young man, but for heaven's sake, stop pushing a lousy website as your savior in life when its primary purpose is to badmouth the great majority of women, and then claim that you are some kind of victim. Go to church, go to a bar, fire up an app and date some women, get to know them, and quit bitching here.

Ette's can't stand bitchy women, let alone men.

Fix it, or forget it.

Either way, piss off for tonight and come back with a better attitude.

711 I grew up in the Westboro Baptist Church. Here's why I left | Megan Phelps-Roper
Ted Talk
https://youtu.be/bVV2Zk88beY

Been a few days since I watched this, but I liked it because she doesn't dwell on the evils of Westboro as much as assumes them, and then simply states her upbringing in that cult, and her coming to an emancipating enlightenment through honest discussions with others online.

About 9:00 in the 15-minute video, she lists what she learned from these enlightening discussions, and she lists her guidelines for clearer communications, which are simple and should be obvious but are really profound.

Don't assume bad intent.

Ask questions.

Stay calm.

Make the argument.


Discussions tonight reminded me of this. Might be a helpful vid for someone.

You are arguing semantics? I ate some hash brownies once at a friend's place.

812 Lasers are like the best. cat. toy.

Ever.

Posted by: SMFH at March 21, 2017 12:47 AM (sB1y1)


Actually, lasers are the worst play toy for a cat, and not because of the laser itself. A cat's play includes 'capturing' and 'killing' as they are natural hunters (pound for pound, one of the most lethal hunters) and play takes advantage of that hunting drive. Lasers do not allow a cat to catch anything and can build up frustration in a cat. And when a cat is frustrated, one's arms and legs pay the price. So when you find THE toy which gets your cat's juices flowing, and he or she captures and kills it, remember that kill chomp just saved your skin from some puncture holes, possibly an infection and even a trip to the ER. A play toy which allows for 'capture' and 'kill' is much cheaper than a visit to the ER.

Posted by: Tim in Illinois at March 21, 2017 04:30 AM (d76uN)

Those guys are having too much fun. Small sparks from the exhaust are no big deal. You get a buildup of carbon on the underside of the exhaust valve heads, and years of idleness allow a little rust to form and loosen those deposits. Start the engine, and those carbon deposits flake off, and come barreling out of the exhaust, glowing, because carbon burns in air, if hot enough.

That's why off-road vehicles have spark arrestors in their tailpipes.

814 AOP. Kind of wondering if that was fire I saw when they first showed the exhaust during the daytime?

Diesel fumes maybe?

Are you full of malfeasance?

Are you a woman?

I don't believe the first, but I could be wrong about the second.

I believed what I had written was correct!

817 So this happens tonight: I went to a local bar in east Mesa, almost in Apache Junction. A guy comes in, 50-something, long brown hair well below his shoulders, sort of the hippie/metal look, you know. He buys a round for the house; the place wasn't very full. I went over and thanked him, and shook his hand. He said he travels with a a band, and doesn't come to this area often.

Then he buys another round for the house, and he wandered around the bar, and stopped by me. I said, "So, you are with a band? Musician, or one of the crew?" He said, "I'm a guitar player. Did you watch the Grammies?" Me: "No, I don't watch TV at all." "Well, I have played with a lot of bands, Clapton, etc. etc." I was about to ask if he had played with Jeff Healey, but his wingman slapped some sunglasses onto him, and hustled him out of the bar.

I just know I have seen him before, and that he is indeed a famous rock guitarist, but I just can't place him. Weird, but cool.

It's common practice to use a spray can of ether (aka QuickStart) to start recalcitrant engines, both Diesel and gasoline. Big flames out the exhaust are common, as the ether that didn't ignite in the first few revolutions of the engine gets ignited when the first cylinder to fire does so.

You can also use ether to bead a tubeless tire that is giving you trouble. Set the lower bead in good contact with the rim, and spray a healthy shot of ether into the inside of the tire. I use a wad of paper on a long wire, set alight, to touch off the ether. You get a loud Whoomp! and both beads of the tire snap onto the rim, so you can air it up. I have done it several times; never fails.

826 So today I commented on a story on thehill.com using the disqus comments platform.
The story was re: FBI Director's comments in Congress today re: Russia drama, etc.

I posted the Ace maxim "I think the key takeaway here is that Hillary Clinton will never be President", and it reached 75 likes before it was somehow deleted, and generated about 13 responses.

Posted by: ThisGuy at March 21, 2017 01:57 AM (drPAM)


After Trump won the election, I noticed how upset most of the commenters were being that most were anti-Trumpers. I posted how butt hurt they seemed suggesting that a couple of 55 gallon barrels of Preparation H should do the trick. That comment was gone within 60 seconds and I was blocked. The Hill people are extremely . . . sensitive. Sensitive, yeah, that's the word.

The Hill could pass for DailyKos in their group think and persistence to preserve their safe space. A waste of a website if you ask me.

I looked up the 2017 Grammy winners list, and didn't see any guitar player that looked like him. Did not look like Steve Vai, or Joe Walsh.

Guy sorta looks like Alice Cooper, but I don't think it's him.

Same active ingredients; just more of them. And this was circa 1990; pot has gotten stronger since then. Being a life-long non-smoker, I could never really inhale pot, as smoked.

I'm just taking issue with the "benign herb" bullshit. It can fuck you up, like alcohol, or opiates, or tobacco. Not necessarily to the same degree.

I agree pot is much stronger today. And I'll bet the hash is weaker.

Smoking pot is like doing shots, the effects are pretty quick. Eating pot-laced food is like having three martinis. The first two, no problem. But that third silver bullet hits you like a ton of bricks.

Posted by: RickZ at March 21, 2017 06:09 AM (L0PQJ)

835 Last time I smoked hash, the better half and I and some friends had gone to Niagara Falls to watch Nick Wallenda walk over the falls on a wire.

We texted a pot delivery service, and when the exceedingly polite young multi-racial delivery guy showed up, he said "there's a little bonus in the bag. Like a Crackerjacks prize."

The "little bonus" turned out to be a small chunk of hash. Niagara Falls throws up a LOT of mist, and they had colored lights on the falls, so we're wandering around through this colorful mist, ogling the broadcast and cable news personalities (we were right near the press area) and then watching Wallenda walk over on the wire. I remember the ABC guy saying, as Wallenda started off, "Walking into the night, walking into the mist, walking into history." I got goosebumps. It was pretty wild.

837 I see where the Baltimore City Council has passed a Bill raising the minimum wage to $15.00 an hour.

Interesting testimony during the process where opposing Council members pointed out that if the minimum wage goes up, city employees also get an automatic raise due to the union pay schedule being linked to minimum wage.

And that the new Living Wage will cost the city hundreds of millions of dollars, if implemented.

It was just interesting to see that argument emerge during testimony.
