Quotes of The Day

Quote I

I am unboreable in the great outdoors. P. J. O'Rourke

Quote II

Spending time outdoors makes you feel great. Elizabeth Hurley

Quote III

The old adage about giving a man a fish versus teaching him how to fish has been updated by a reader: Give a man a fish and he will ask for tartar sauce and French fries! Moreover, some politician who wants his vote will declare all these things to be among his 'basic rights.' Thomas Sowell

Shit Death rolls down hill. 2nd in command of Hezbollah pisses off Iran. He winds up dead.

Much has been said and written about Iran’s intended entrenchment in Syria and the way Tehran is investing extraordinary human and financial resources to help President Bashar Assad survive. Still, the story of the assassination of Mustafa Badreddine, the head of Hezbollah’s military wing, illustrates with rare clarity the determination on the part of Iran and Hezbollah not to let anyone interfere with Iran’s plans in Syria.

Wonder how much Obama-cash was used?

We all have one of these friends and/or family. You know the one, the one who is always late. The one who you say, "There is real time and there is _________ time. The psychology behind the habitual tardy.


The way we are wired to manage time could be to blame

A study from 2016 by Washington University psychologists Emily Waldun and Mark McDaniel looked into this theory, and described it as Time-Based Prospective Memory (TBPM.)

GAINZZZZZZ Or not.

For cannibals, here’s the caloric content of humans—it’s just meh
Low nutritional value suggests cannibalism may be more socially motivated.


.......By rough estimates, eating all the skeletal flesh off a human—not including the organs—would provide about 32,376 calories. An optimally sized hunting group of 25 male Neanderthals or Pleistocene adults (anatomically modern human) could get about a meal out of that. But if the same group tracked down a boar or cow—which are less cunning and maybe easier to hunt—they’d have three days' worth of meals out of the skeletal flesh. The findings appear Thursday in Scientific Reports.

The ONT Musical Interlude


April 9, 1989, Rolling Stone Bill Wyman announced his forthcoming marriage to 19-year old Mandy Smith. He revealed the couple had been dating for six years. via thisdayinmusic.com


April 9, 1983, David Bowie was at No.1 on the UK singles chart with the title track from his latest album 'Let's Dance', his fourth UK No.1 and featuring blues guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan. The song introduced Bowie to a new, younger audience oblivious to his former career in the 1970s and was a US No.1 hit, Bowie’s first single to reach number one on both sides of the Atlantic. via thisdayinmusic.com

The ONT is torn about posting this asshole. However, here is what America is facing in colleges.

Tweets from an account purportedly operated by Professor Lars Maischak call for Trump to “hang” in order to “save American democracy,” and say the only “cure” for racist people is a bullet to their head. The account is not verified, although the bio and interactions between the user and other Twitter users indicate it belongs to the professor.

Canadian dress codes just got changed.

The Canadian province of British Columbia has banned dress codes which require female employees to wear high heels at work.

The local government ruled that these requirements are a health and safety issue, putting workers at risk of slipping or falling as well as long-term injuries to the feet, legs and back.


Do you know what is good for the feet, legs and backs ladies? Sammich making!!!!


*****

Do you have some synthetic kitty litter at the house? That's a good thing. As it could save your cell phone.

As it turns out, one household item puts the rest to shame when it comes to saving your beloved smartphone. And if you’re a cat owner, you’re especially in luck…

Saving your water-damaged smartphone could depend on one crucial item: synthetic “crystal” kitty litter. While it has long been recommended that you use rice in such situations, this works much better!

Going to the caveman dentist was probably a nightmare.

No shit Sherlock, what was your first clue? And no, nevergiveup cannot chime in.

Only a matter of time before there are Love Potion pills?

Anders Sandberg, a neuroethicist at Oxford University’s Future of Humanity Institute, will discuss the role of romance drugs at an upcoming Institute of Art and Ideas conference “Love in the Time of Tinder”. He says that while we can’t buy romance pills yet, it’s only a matter of years before they exist. His work combines neuroscience and philosophy to unpack the ethical consequences of such pills, and just how they’ll fit into our lives.


Even as a bachelor, I would have preferred a cure of the Common Cold.

Commenting Advice

The ONT is just that, an overnight open thread. There are plenty of topics every evening, or you can go off on your own topics. The main goal is to have fun. Lately the ONT has taken on an edge and quite frankly is not fun. I'm going to remind you what Ace has said about posting. Although he geared this thread about political commentary, this can also be applied to ONT commentary and topics.

This was once a place for actual discussion; it will be again.

And I will ban those assholes who are incapable of behaving like elevated, educated, thinking people.

You're too "angry" to discuss things? Don't give a fuck; not my problem. You're banned.

Your problems are your problems, and your problems alone; your emotional problems and angry outbursts will no longer be acceptable blog fodder here.

If this blog is too fast for you -- if people making arguments you might disagree with is just too painful for your mind to take -- well, there's lots of other blogs on the web; I suggest you try one that's more your speed.

We here are pretty good commenters, and pretty good at discussion and at repartee; we're not going to be dragged down to a sub-moron level simply because that's the only level at which a sub-moron feels he can participate in a Real Life Political Discussion.
-- Ace August 26, 2015


Now, let's have some fun. It's The ONT Woot-Woot!

28 Honest question - are matters that are personal to us that have emotional significance no longer permitted to be discussed? Or is this meant as an admonition not to be dicks to each other?

The latter.

I vaguely remember when Ace posted this - the context, as I remember it, was against people who had some kind of an axe to grind and did so in the comments sections.

I saw one example earlier today, where someone was accusing us of hating Christians. Clearly off base and, I think, coming from someone who really isn't a regular reader or commenter here.

The admonition was against the *how* you discuss things, not really the *what.*. Saying you're upset at a terrorist attack is one thing - accusing CBD of covering up Soros-funded inaction on the part of the U.S. is what is out of bounds.

My opinion.

82 There was just a funny moment on "Spring Baking Championship". There are 3 judges, one of whom is British. One of the contestants did an absolutely fantastic cake, however one of the layers was partly raw.
So the discussion was whether he should be the one to go home for having one layer partly raw. Two judges said they do send people home for raw cake. The British judge said, "don't include me in that," and slid her chair away from them. The other female judge said, "what is she doing?" Duff said, "she's doing a Brexit."

Called Joyce today, and.... She picked up!! We're so used to get,ting her voicemail, it was such a treat!

Had a really good conversation - and it really *was* a conversation: she spoke so many long sentences and used a lot more multi-syllable words.

Yesterday, she spent a good chunk of the day with her friend Jessica, outdoors "helping with" yard work. And she's walking more, as well.

And she knew that they head up to Shand's tomorrow to learn the results of her MRI.

Please continue praying for Joyce to find a path to healing.

Posted by: shibumi at April 09, 2017 09:42 PM (FkAXz)

Ted didn't go after under aged but liked 18 and 19 year-olds. I remember his (beautiful) daughters with him in an interview just going to town on how embarrassed they were to meet his young girlfriends and when he kind of flirted with their friends. It was pretty funny because you could see they loved him but wished he'd knock it off! And he teased them right back about it being a natural biological attraction.

He had bow hunting camp for kids in the county where I had a summer job, and I ran into him. Nice man.

Add John Mellencamp to that list, too. One of my co-workers had interviewed him years ago. Said he lived up to his "Little Bastard" nickname.

As for me, the biggest a-hole I ever had to deal with was a country singer named Don Williams. Huge star in the 60s and 70s, and I really liked his voice. He was totally uncooperative when it came time for the interview, was rude to the staff, and would only give "yes" and "no" answers.

Bowie was always full of it. For the first few years he was worth it. Around the mid-70s it just became bullshit.

As with Springsteen - 'Born To Run' was a great instrumental submerged under some of the most embarassing lyrics ("strap your hands cross my engines") ever seen. The American Rock-n-Roll Sausage Factory.

collection.

He did a section on subsistence patterns in New Guinea, and
it is a given that cannibalism is endemic in New Guinea. The majority
of cannibalism is found in the area between the highlands where farming
is the main subsistence route, and the low lands where it is hunting and
gathering. There is a band where the farming is poor and the forest is
not so rich where cannibalism is a valid subsistence strategy.
He also had gamed out calories v energy put into collection. He also pointed out that cannibalism outside of that area was often to make a point of some sort.

He was on a creative high when he died. Blackstar is a masterpiece.

Part of that prep and cleaning is getting rid of all "chametz," anything with grain or leavening. Some we pitch, but staples that we don't want to have to replace present a challenge. It's customary in our congregation (and many others) to "sell" then chametz to the synagogue. You sign a "contract" promising you won't use any of it, and then pack it up and put it in the garage (for example).

Our family has a fun and, AFAWK unique, tradition: we pack it all up, and then *literally* sell it to our neighbors. They pay us $1 and we shlep the bins over to their house. We've done this for many, many years. We are SO blessed.

After Passover, we go back over and buy our food back. The running game joke is that Pete will demand $10 and his wife will tell him no

It's customary in our congregation (and many others) to "sell" then chametz to the synagogue. You sign a "contract" promising you won't use any of it, and then pack it up and put it in the garage (for example).

Our family has a fun and, AFAWK unique, tradition: we pack it all up, and then *literally* sell it to our neighbors. They pay us $1 and we shlep the bins over to their house. We've done this for many, many years. We are SO blessed.

After Passover, we go back over and buy our food back. The running game joke is that Pete will demand $10 and his wife will tell him no

As for me, the biggest a-hole I ever had to deal with was a country singer named Don Williams. Huge star in the 60s and 70s, and I really liked his voice. He was totally uncooperative when it came time for the interview, was rude to the staff, and would only give "yes" and "no" answers.

Michael Bolton hands down is the biggest sucker of cock out there.

Back in the early-mid 90's, he fancied himself a real softball king. When he had a concert in town, he would have a game against a local radio station and they had a very specific rider of what the field dimensions were. Found out a few weeks before why. The first couple of innings, they would play with regular softball bats and they would hit fly balls that the outfielders would catch about 10ft from the fence. After those first 3 innings, they would break out some titanium bats and start jacking homers. Radio stations didn't have the kind of money to buy those types of bats, so the rout was on.

Friend of mine's station played them about a week before we did. His station's owner hated to lose, and when he found out what they would be doing, he bought some titanium bats. All of a sudden, the radio station players began jacking the ball out, and instead of the rout being on, the "Bolton Bombers" (yes, thats what they called themselves) were behind. The 3pm cutoff time came and they were still trailing, so, they kept playing. Finally, as 4pm came up, they took the lead at the top of the inning, at which point, they called "game".

They did that because they were "undefeated", and by doing that, they kept on billing themselves as undefeated.

Best guys? Hootie and the Blowfish. Stopped by the station and hung out with EVERYONE there. And Harry Connick, Jr. His sister married a guy that lived here in town, and when he came to visit them, he would just drop by the station unannounced.

As pointed out they use it to snark at Mormons....and feminists hate it.

But Muslims want it, and this is *no* way you can make a cogent argument in favor of "gay marriage" and not polygamy.

Of course it might well be the deal knell of modern western culture. Hypergamy+feminism+polygamy is likely to end up with the lower 50% percentile of men having no hope of a relationship much like you see in the Muslim world which leads to massive instability.

There won't be an uncanny valley, except that some 80 year old actor will be pretending to be forever 29 year old, and breaking the illusion, because no one is good at pretending that his titanium hips don't ache.

We could have just replaced the actor, the way we buy-in that a blonde dude is James Bond, or Ben Affleck is now Jack Ryan or Batman, or the Mother of Dragons is now Sarah Connor. Everyone would have understood this has to happen. Just as the audience anted up to pay their $10, they willingly put forth the mental effort to preserve the illusion.

The Soviet infantry in one square (or two?) were scared by the charging cavalry thundering down on them and began running away.

314 Close. It's going to be some middle-class white liberal couple and their mutual girlfriend. You see, the trick is to win over white middle class women with the idea that they can have the husband and kids, but still have the lesbianism that their women's studies course told them was part of being a good feminist.

320 Sorry, but hair-flippy girl is not exactly correct that "transitioning" is the only treatment for "transgenders." In fact, it simply reinforces the delusion and usually leads to regrets and eventually suicide. No amount of "sculpting" will make a man a woman or vice versa.

There are treatments that involve talk therapy and working on coping strategies and working out ways to face the world and get on with life. In some cases, this means complete abstinence but also means inner peace.

Body disphoria does not always mean "transgendered." There are those who believe they should not have a leg, or not have sight, or not have an arm or other strange notions, and blinding or amputation makes no sense to treat this, either, so why should cutting off breasts or a penis work any better? These are the treatments for those who give up.

I suppose it is much like they do in the Netherlands and Belgium, where if you are depressed, you can just have somebody kill you. Same basic deal, just awful outcomes all around.

I, OTOH, identify as a millionaire, and I'm waiting for somebody to make the deposit to my bank account so that I don't have to face reality on that front. Who's up for that sort of treatment?

2. Incest: already showing up with adults given up for adoption

3. Abnormal sexuality: homosexuality, bestiality, pedophilia, necrophilia and masturbation. LOL. It will ALL be mainstreamed

4. Murder: well, if you can kill a fetus, why not a living person? They're just post fetal tissue.

5. Suicide: already mainstreamed IMHO

6. Interracial and inter-religion marriages- already mainstreamed.

7. Dead bodies: I can see necrophilia being touted as a way to cure people with sexual issues, as well as a Soylent "green" source of protein.

8. Illegal drugs: all eventually legal.

355 They're not pushing polygamy because it's in the bag. What judge would oppose it? Who would even bother trying to fight it? The libs could slap down the "ISLAMOPHOBIA!" card and silence any objections.

So they're not even bothering to push it. No, they're already looking ahead to kiddy-fiddling. No legal age of consent. Now that they have a proper Marxist pope there's no need to use pedo priests as a club to attack the Church.

Expect a movie about "forbidden love" between a woman and an underage girl some time in the next five or six years. (Bonus points for making it an interracial relationship, double points if one is Muslim, MEGA BONUS SCORE if some inbred Hollywood retards can be talked into pimping out their underage daughter for explicit sex scenes.) It'll get rave reviews from critics for being "brave" and "transgressive" and "questioning patriarchy" or whatever.

Try making a thick flour roux with some of the broth and flour - add some butter in too - cook it to kill the raw flour taste, and mix it in with the chicken and rice, and also some cooked or drained mushrooms. Put the pot on high for a bit to mix the flavors.
You can add some sherry or white wine if you like, and some pepper would be good too.

*strains brain*

I had to work *really* hard to recall this quote, and it is intended in good humor:
---

And here I must make a protest against the pretence, so often put forward by the working clergy, that they are overburdened by the
multitude of sermons to be preached. We are all too fond of our own voices, and a preacher is encouraged in the vanity of making his heard by the privilege of a compelled audience. His sermon is the
pleasant morsel of his life, his delicious moment of self-exaltation.

"I have preached nine sermons this week," said a young friend to me the other day, with hand languidly raised to his brow, the picture of
an overburdened martyr. "Nine this week, seven last week, four the week before. I have preached twenty-three sermons this month. It is really too much."

"Too much, indeed," said I, shuddering; "too much for the strength of any one."

"Yes," he answered meekly, "indeed it is; I am beginning to feel it painfully."

"Would," said I, "you could feel it--would that you could be made to feel it." But he never guessed that my heart was wrung for the poor listeners.

Don't put rice or butter in the crock pot. Chicken, veg, liquid, and spices of choice. Add flour and butter roux at end. Cook your rice in a rice cooker next to Crock-Pot.

395 Hey whoa, so CMP will actually be getting some new M-1s (thanks to whoever linked that).


Actually, no telling about the condition, even if "Philippines" makes one think "used hard". All depends on how much they actually *were* used.


At a minimum, good for parts. And as I only see a service grade special, at most, in my future, that will help keep those coming for a while.


What would be better for some of us would be for some MAP country to find a billion rounds of M2 ball ammo in good condition, and get *that* into CMP's hands. I reload 30-06 for this particular purpose, but have not stocked a lifetime's supply of good milsurp brass (yet).

398 Need some prayers for the Mrs.

Friday morning her dad got up to take a leak and noticed blood on the hallway floor and walls. When he got back to the bedroom he noticed my mother in law was covered in blood, like Godfather horse head in the bed covered in blood. It seems after he went to bed, she had a seizure and hit her head, didn't know she had fallen and hit her head and went to bed. She is now in the hospital with some staples in her scalp, and is now being tested to see if she has leukemia or lymphoma or another blood like cancer.

Today, she is sitting at the hospital with her dad and mom, and he says he is having chest pains and has been since Friday. Down to the ER they go, his heart rate was 230 bpm, that's a tad high. 84 years old with a ticker going 230 bpm for 3 days. He's now waiting for a bed to open up, and the Mrs is going back and forth between the two.

They should be fine, but the Mrs needs some good vibes sent her way.

400 357 They're not pushing polygamy because it's in the bag. What judge would oppose it? Who would even bother trying to fight it? The libs could slap down the "ISLAMOPHOBIA!" card and silence any objections.

So they're not even bothering to push it. No, they're already looking ahead to kiddy-fiddling. No legal age of consent. Now that they have a proper Marxist pope there's no need to use pedo priests as a club to attack the Church.

Expect a movie about "forbidden love" between a woman and an underage girl some time in the next five or six years. (Bonus points for making it an interracial relationship, double points if one is Muslim, MEGA BONUS SCORE if some inbred Hollywood retards can be talked into pimping out their underage daughter for explicit sex scenes.) It'll get rave reviews from critics for being "brave" and "transgressive" and "questioning patriarchy" or whatever.

Soon it will be as bad as it was in Roman times.

Jesus, too, fell under the load of his actual cross, and had to get someone to help him carry the load.

When times get bad, when we fall, we help each other. This is how the Jewish people have survived, century after century, in a hostile world. It is how we will survive, if we are to survive.

418 As a Christian, and a Catholic to boot, I struggle with the choice of turning the other cheek or fighting for justice. I know there is no perfect justice on this earth, nor will there be, but at the same time, is not God pleased when we fight for justice, particularly God's justice?

Or am I just a cranky ass who thinks people should be held responsible for their actions, and who should focus more in mercy and less on making things right?

My view is that a man has, at most, four cheeks to turn, and after he has been struck upon all of them, he's entitled to seek justice.

There is a certain point when evil is not to be tolerated, when you see moneychangers profaning the temple, or when the threat from within or without puts all that is good and right in your world in peril.

Never forget Ecclassiastes, Chapter 3. There is a time for every purpose under heaven. Was not Peter a soldier at heart, and is that not to whom Jesus handed the keys to the church?

Posted by: Cato the Rebel Without a Party at April 10, 2017 02:51 AM (J+mig)

420 I believe I tolerated enough crap at that job to require justice, whatever form that may take. The final straw was being made responsible for making a fool "communicate" with me, when he refused to even speak to me, and then being fired because I just didn't understand "the younger generation." I was, after all, never young, so I couldn't possibly know what that's like. Nor do I understand that when I notice something that needs doing, and I do it, I make others "feel bad." I'm sure that was worth firing me.

I also really enjoyed having my idiot coworker tell me, after Trump was elected, that I should be glad that I got my racist , fascist President in office now.

But hey, that's not insulting or anything. And even if it was, I don't have real feelings, so....

The only thing I know about this is that their ad has appeared in one of my tabs (I forget which one), and, being astute enough to realize that I was seeing something that just might have a use one day, I copied it.

I have never visited their website (so Toxic-Virus-Prepare-To-Reformat-Your-HD-Just-In-Case Alert), but they might have material on it that can at least guide you to the type of lawyer you need, and the initial questions to ask ... and the type of evidence that you (should have) kept and how to present it.
