Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave. Martin Luther


Doesn't hurt if there is Jello Salad involved.

Quote II

A house is no home unless it contain food and fire for the mind as well as for the body. Margaret Fuller

Quote III

I've got no idea when I am going to retire. Whenever they pick me up and take me to the funeral home, I guess. Colonel Sanders

Quote III

I live in my own little world. But its OK, they know me here Lauren Myracle


How many of you Morons can relate to this?

*****


Jury duty, something you avoid? Something you would be happy to perform? Prescription to get off jury duty.

How would a physician determine medical “fitness” to serve on a jury?

Upon reviewing your individual state’s requirements and understanding the comprehensive clinical picture of his/her patient, a doctor could make a more informed determination. Aside from being over 18 years old due to eligibility requirements, age would be an unlikely consideration in deciphering medical fitness. The individual’s personal capabilities would be of concern, not the wide brush of age 75 or what-have-you.

The self-gratification generation. Marriage Sabbatical.

found myself doubting our relationship. I loved Simon with every cell of my being, but was I still in love with him? I missed the intoxicating feeling of our earlier years together. Having ‘settled down’ so young, was I missing out on something better?” she wrote for the Daily Mail.

As Warrington realized, this type of lull is normal in a marriage. After all, you can’t keep up that initial intoxication forever. Lust settles and morphs into something different in a happy marriage — a depth of connection and understanding and love.

But she wasn’t satisfied.


As with anything in life, if you want something to be successful, you have to work at it.


*****


Dewey, Cheatem & Howe are looking for a few good associates. Unfortunately, law school graduates are having a difficult time in passing the bar exam.

Just when we thought that bar exam performance couldn’t get any worse, lo and behold, the national mean MBE scaled score from the February 2017 has reared its ugly head. Last year, the national mean MBE scaled score from the February bar exam was 135, a 33-year low. This year, that same score is 134, which is the lowest in the history of aggregated MBE results. Exam statistics were first aggregated in 1976. The previous record low for this score was a 134.3, in 1980.

*****


The lack of spell check, caused big problems.

We've mentioned it once or twice before, but sometimes typos are a much bigger deal than you'd think. For every time your stupid thumbs missed a key while texting "first" and left you inadvertently offering to fist your own mother, somebody out there skipped a digit and damn near ended the world. Like so ..


Had some of you Morons been present, just think how history would have been changed.


*****


Are you good at following instructions? Would you electrocute someone if you were told to? New research says you would.

More than 50 years have passed since Yale psychologist Stanley Milgram conducted several highly controversial experiments to determine just how far people would go in the name of following orders. Now, a new study has built on Milgram’s experiments and come to a terrifying conclusion: 90 percent of participants would electrocute an innocent person simply because they were told to do so.


*****


Sharia Law or Prank Law, which is better? You decide.

Both are painful, however with one you are left with your hands.

The ONT Musical Interlude


April 12, 1944, Born on this day, John Kay, guitar, vocals, Steppenwolf, (1968 US No.2 and 1969 UK No.30 single 'Born To Be Wild'). via thisayinmusic.com
Happy Birthday!!


April 12, 1967, Mick Jagger was punched in the face by an airport official during a row at Le Bourget Airport in France. Jagger lost his temper after The Stones were being searched for drugs resulting in them missing their flight. via thisdayinmusic.com


Every time I hear this song I think about the cigar smoking preacher, Rev. Gene Scott.


Since we are glad to be home tonight. A blast from the past.

Participation trophies aren't good enough. Boys will be girls and girls will be boys and it's a mixed up world.

The latest girls’ 100- and 200-meter dash winner from Cromwell High School in Connecticut has some broad shoulders, manly biceps, and a mustache — because he’s not a girl. The power of social stigma is strong enough, however, in this politically and culturally Left community to coerce an entire girls’ track team and their families to affirm an idea their eyes and experiences can easily disprove and which is directly harmful to their own aspirations and children.

If you don't read the entire piece, please read the first 2-3 paragraphs. Mind boggling.


*****

Leave it to a Bloomberg publication, Sorry Americans your taxes aren't high.

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development analyzed how 35 countries tax wage-earners, making it possible to compare tax burdens across the world’s biggest economies. Each year, the OECD measures what it calls the “tax wedge,” the gap between what a worker gets paid and what they actually spend or save. Included are income taxes, payroll taxes, and any tax credits or rebates that supplement worker income. Excluded are the countless other ways that governments levy taxes, such as sales and value-added taxes, property taxes, and taxes on investment income and gains.

How convenient that a plethora of taxes weren't included.

8 Does this seem even remotely plausible?

From the FedArm website for .44/rd 7.62x51

In the loading process, FedArm uses only the top quality NEW 2016 US made SMP 735 powder and CCI primers. Powder is dropped to +/- 0.1 grain tolerance to ensure the highest accuracy.

Each round is hand loaded one bullet at a time, with each powder drop weighed out. This process is typically only used for the most accurate sniper ammo. Then each finished round is hand inspected one by one and packed.

40 This ammunition is manufactured in the USA by FedArm using brand new FedArm mil-spec manufactured .308 diameter 147 grain FMJ Ball M80 projectiles. Projectiles based on lots may have lighter cores than previous lots earlier this year, but ammo within the lot will be extremely consistent.

Only once-fired military brass is used in loading. This brass is acid washed, Camdex processed and trimmed to SAAMI specifications, and electromagnetically inspected for thin walls and defects to ensure safe internal tolerances.

A mandatory literacy exam for... prospective teachers.

Not that being able to read and write oneself would have any bearing on one's ability to instruct students in those arts. Heavens no!

I suspect we're not far off the mark from when bar exams themselves will be formally struck down as de facto discriminatory against underperforming ethnic applicants to the bar.

I'll give an explanation a try.

I believe that politicians want crazy, unproductive people in the US. Having a low IQ is a bonus. Which is why the love Muslims. They WANT a large portion of the nation (a majority in fact) to be 100% dependent on Uncle Sam.

Why?

If you are dependent on the gubbermint, you will vote EVERY SINGLE TIME for the person who will give you the most freebies.

That means... jobs for life for our politicians, as long as they keep the benjamins flowing. They can then enact whatever policies they want, as long as their constituents on the dole keep getting a check.

Sure, that means that the "makers" have to work twice as hard to support the "takers" but as long as the takers are in the majority, and the makers are busy working, it's cool.

As for what happens when the makers leave... well, there's this thing called a printing press that can be used to create dollars...

There was the usual, and then one of his mother's friends appeared. "You are sick!" she screamed. IIRC, in his fantasies, he killed her off so he wouldn't be cheating on her, which pissed her off even more.

And then she ended up dreaming about some beefcake doctor at a hospital. Where Doug had just died.

The judge snapped at the lawyer, and the lawyer was from the judge's brother's law firm.

Then there is the issue of criminal lawyers having to deal with the dregs of the earth.

211 Mannix drove a convertible, a modified Dodge Dart, IIRC. He had several different muscle cars over the course of the series (which they're running on MeTV, which is why I'm thinking about it).

I can vaguely remember watching it first run as a little kid. But that was one tough son of a bitch.

The other night, he gets in the car, notices the car that has been following him is right behind him. He calls Peggy, his secretary, and when looks up, there's the driver, a mob thug, right in his face. He (of course) tells him it would be wise to get off the case.

Mannix makes some wise crack, then opens the door, and floor the accelerator, knocking the guy over good. Then he jumps out, disarms him, and knocks the shit out of him.

226 More than 50 years have passed since Yale psychologist Stanley Milgram conducted several highly controversial experiments to determine just how far people would go in the name of following orders. Now, a new study has built on Milgram's experiments and come to a terrifying conclusion: 90 percent of participants would electrocute an innocent person simply because they were told to do so.

++++

Hmm... They built a new study based on a famous old sturdy. Just one thing. The old study was fake science.

After an investigation of the test, Australian psychologist Gina Perry re-evaluated Milgram's data and stated that Milgram had manipulated his results. "Overall, over half disobeyed," Perry stated. She found, contrary to the popular version, that there is a "troubling mismatch between (published) descriptions of the experiment and evidence of what actually transpired". She concludes, that many subjects didn't in fact believe in the reality of the experiments, that "at some level, they'd seen through the ruse" and that it is "more truthful to say that only half of the people who undertook the experiment fully believed it was real, and of those, two-thirds (i.e. some 33 per cent of all) disobeyed the experimenter". On the Holocaust connection, Perry writes: "You have this neat analogy (with the Holocaust). But without that rhetorical framework, Milgram's experiments become no more than reality TV. It's clothed as science and, once clothed as science, you can sell it as science. The rhetorical framing is crucial to the survival of the obedience studies.

There was the usual, and then one of his mother's friends appeared. "You are sick!" she screamed. IIRC, in his fantasies, he killed her off so he wouldn't be cheating on her, which pissed her off even more.

And then she ended up dreaming about some beefcake doctor at a hospital. Where Doug had just died.

The only time we don't have to mow our lawn is when it rains and it's too wet.

So, it's like this, at least in Michigan:

You only have to shovel snow when there's over an inch or so of snow. Some shovel more, others less. It does not snow every week; this winter, I've only had to use the snow blower about six times. The grass goes dormant in the cold weather.

From April to October, you mow your lawn every week.

Random snow shoveling December - March or weekly mowing. Choose one.

BTW, if your lawn gets too high, the city will fine you. If it rains six days in a row, you'd best be out there on day seven mowing...

262 Milgram is not as cut-and-dried either way. There are allegations of fraud about the original experiments, and those who argue it wasn't. And other replications have found similar high compliance rates.

The "ethics of psychological experiments" standards now make replicating it impossible now, I think. They can't really make someone think they are really hurting someone, much less going to kill them. It's unethical now to subject someone to that kind of stress.

So they argue about the conclusions and "what it was really measuring".

Another "good one" was the Stanford Prison Experiment. That one, I can believe, as it agrees with my assessment of human nature. Give someone unchecked power, and they'll become a tyrannical, sadistic asshole.

We had a pretty mild winter, but we don't have to mow from about late November to the middle of March. Sometimes if I put the fertilizer down in late February, I'll have to mow the first week of March, but I didn't do it this year, and the first mow was because it looked scraggly.

I'm hoping for a drier spring and summer this year so that I don't have to mow every week. The first 7 years we lived in the house, I barely mowed from the middle of June until late September. Last about 10 years it has been rainy all summer long.

Mild winter also sucks because I went out to talk to some jackass that was driving his truck across my yard to get to a neighbors backyard, and when I came in, I found a couple of ticks climbing up my leg. Yeah, the ticks are gonna be awesome this year.

Back in December the dog had been having some digestive troubles, so when she woke me up with "Take me outside!" noises at 3:30 a.m., I did.

The moon was near full, but with scudding overcast, so it was never completely out, but enough defused moonlight to see. It was a bit foggy and cold, maybe 40 degrees.

We walked down an empty parkway with large trees and a creek running through the center of it. All-in-all, if the headless horseman had come galloping through, the scene would have been complete.

The weird thing is, the dog was having a great time...and so was I. I mean, I don't know what set the endorphins off, but it was a euphoric experience.

Yes, though it requires a pretty damn strong moral sense.

If you look at someone like Pinochet, he acquired a high level of control in Chile, mostly fixed the issues they faced, and then gave up power...of course he probably held on to power a lot longer then he needed to.

Other more obvious examples with be George Washington or Cinncinatus, though especially in the former case he was careful not to give himself too much power to begin with...

324 So, I've been sending out resumes into the void.

Today, I got a call that was a spontaneous job interview. A screening call. I did not know that is what the call was going to be.

Good news: Resume resulted in response.

Bad news: Totally botched it. Big time. Had no idea what job it was for and who the company was. Could not remember. At all.

Good news: Salary was probably way under what I would want, and I was probably horrifically over-qualified.

Good news: I now know that if I'm doing a quick interview call, I need some sort of list of points to hit, rather than babbling incoherently. Which I did.

So.. I probably came out ahead. By just a bit.

And had a really interesting Skype call with someone about drone tracking technology. So... I guess it has been a good day.

One night we went skiing in the woods in the middle of the night. It was just so really cool."

Me and a friend went cross country mountain biking in the snow in the middle of the night. With a full moon out it's almost like daylight.

Also, I've played paintball in the middle of deep woods under a full moon. It's really wild creeping around knowing somebody might shoot you at any second with a .68 caliber paintball that's moving aprox. 250 FPS. (usually we had the guns tuned to 300 FPS, but for the night games we turned them down a bit because of the much closer encounter ranges)

339 Look up the Stanford Prison Experiment. In short, they took a group of students. They made half "prisoners" and the other half "guards", and set them up in a mock prison (the local police dept assisted with the experiments, providing the "prisoners" the full experience of being arrested and then taken to prison -- there are questions about that -- I don't know if that would be kosher today).

They had to end the experiment early, because the guards were becoming sadistic and doing sick shit.

They are criticisms of that one as well, saying the guards knew it wasn't real and were just "acting" for the benefit of the researchers running the thing. Giving them something to talk about.

Again, current standards prevent any experiments like this being done now. Again, unethical to subject people to this kind of emotional (and physical) distress.

One argument they make, and one I tend to agree with, is we don't like to look at stuff like this because we can't handle the truth about human nature. We don't want to know how sick we can become.

The upshot of all this to me is that authority is *VERY* dangerous thing to give to people. There should always be checks. And transparency.

342 Getting out of jury duty:

I found that getting off the juror rolls is harder than it should be after once you are on the list and have actually served on trials. It seems like they want the same few jurors over and over, I guess because they are reliable. I do have a medical condition, a damaged heart at 50% power. I wrote numerous letters to get off the rolls after my last summons, but kept getting bullshit responses. The last letter I finally let loose on their stupidity in wanting a juror who fell asleep at odds times, stating I'm sure judges would love that. I also took swipes at the judicial system as a whole, mentioning gender-action idiot judges like the Wise Latina. Never heard from them again.

Moral of the story: Never be polite to The Bureaucracy. Instead, kick 'em right in their government union pension-loving groins.

++++

Depends on what you think the purpose of a law degree is. If it is to show that one has received the appropriate training and is prepared to represent the clients who may choose to hire him, then his ability to find a job is irrelevant.

On the other hand, if you believe the purpose of requiring lawyers to obtain degrees before they can practice law is to limit the supply of lawyers and keep that labor market tight (and thus driving up the cost of hiring a lawyer), then you maybe right and we need to make it harder for people to get law degrees.

355 All the talk of the beauty of the Frozen North, brings to mind one of the only two semi-poetic bits I've ever written.

The Cold Wind.


The cold wind cuts to the bone, and gives no quarter.

Bracing myself against the onslaught, I trudge through the night, coming home from a long days work at an icy desk. Though a short walk from car, to dock, to boat; each step is agony.

Old injuries speak loudly when the cold wind cuts to the bone.

Warmth awaits belowdecks, yet strangely, I linger upon the pier. Gazing slowly around, I take in the trawlers, the sloops and cruisers around me. Up on the hard rest the weary, awaiting renewal with paint, props and the attention of owners and shipwrights.

Lights framed by glowing halos, the waterfront, devoid of wanderers to join me, brings warmth to my soul.

In spite of the cold wind, that cuts to the bone.

I am home.




Written exactly as experienced, moments after having arrived home at the boat after a long day's work on a bitter cold day into night. Feb., 2004.

"Otherizing". Yes, exactly. I've seen this movie before.

Adorno's "The Authoritarian Personality" is a classic from the 50s, but my theory is at least in modern society, it's leftists who have all the totalitarian traits. Socialism and fascism aren't opposites, they go hand in hand.

Nuremberg supposedly put a rest to the idea of "just following orders" as a valid defense. Though when I look around today, there's no question a lot of people will follow orders, to keep their jobs, and their pensions, etc. Did anyone think the cops would stand idly by while leftists smashed peoples faces in for attending a political rally? See where I'm goin' with that?

I weigh the charges on about 1/3 of my 30-06 stuff, because it's for the Garand, and because ultra-cautious with high-pressure calibers. But I've found that visual inspection, once you know what your desired charge looks like in the case, ensures very consistent charges.

386 Having avoided the MSM for years (after living in it and even working in it), it is remarkable how shocking and dismaying it can be to dip in for a taste.


Yesterday, something - Politico I think - and today, the D-Rudge-linked WaPo thing on Bannon.


WTF?


Gossip, factual errors, tendentious assumptions, bizarre premises, empty drama, squeezing implausible amounts of meaning out of .... nothing.


The WaPo thing talked about Trump family trying to "resuscitate" his presidency (!!! WTF?). About the "lack of a major legislative accomplishment" - (ha!) in APRIL of his first year in office. Both articles refer to the imaginary "Russia" stuff "dogging" his presidency, or words to that effect.


In one respect, this could be beneficial. The Beltway mindset, if it is *this* delusional, will be far less of a problem to brush aside or crush in getting some useful things done. But this experiment, of seeing whether the US can still function with almost the entirety of its media and pop culture and much of its "elite" and population living in a toxic make-believe world, seems to be a bad idea.

389 @342 - got a jury duty summons and wrote back describing in some detail about a medical condition that had damn near killed me years earlier and made it difficult to serve. Was dismissed. I was torn, felt it was a duty, but my body didn't agree. As a business owner, an engineer and someone who has testified as an expert in a Federal case, I probably wouldn't have made it through voir dire anyway. But still, a duty to try if possible.

Kim Jong-Un was the norm for most of human history. Barbaric assholes in power. We're the exception to that rule. The concepts we hold dear, and take for granted, were hard won, and took a long time to rise out of the primordial ooze. And the left now wants to throw them away.

AS someone above mentioned as well, empathy is the key. A human being without the empathy circuits would be a monster. Not nice at all.

So, just like the Post Office I bet.

"Liberals" are so invested in their worldview, they cannot admit any fault or even the possibility that they are mistaken, be ause they haven't arrived at their conclusions with facts or reason. Unencumbered by the thought process. So they will resist violently to concede that even the most minor details of the world around us are not as they seem. "Your death before their dishonor". Always remember that - they are willing to have you killed or die, in order that their precious narrative is not questioned. It is a barbaric creed of the worst sort, I've been watching this shit for a while and it is beyond anything I imagined.

I just split them,lay them skin side down, brush them with lemon butter, salt and pepper and 4 minutes later you eat.

I don't use the microwave, but that's pretty much how I cook Salmon. Take off the head and tail, put some thin sliced lemon between the halves, bake it whole until it flakes.

THEN split it, and pull out the bones in one smooth move.

I never understood the need to fillet them--it just wastes good flesh and then you still have to pick out bones. And cooking a fillet dries it out too much.

I also have been known to do this on a grill. Then you get the smoky parts, too. Yum.

465 If a people can pick and choose their gender, and women can do anything a man can anyway then it seems we should just do away with men and women's sports teams. No women's basketball, no men's track or anything else. There will be no gender distinctions and whoever makes the teams is just based on mixed gender tryouts,

Of course these teams would end being overwhelming male while women would just have to just watch and suck it up. If the left wants to play this game I say we play along and go full Alynsky.

470 A little story about how I know my man is a real man.

I got fired last week because some candy-ass little 26 year old punk refused to speak with me and couldn't figure out how to work with me. The 30-something owner blamed me by telling me that I do not understand their generation because I am too old and that speaking directly about things hurts everybody's feelings. Lawsuit has already begun apace.

One fine afternoon, the little punk told me that he could handle everything in the kitchen and then said "Sit."

When I told my husband, he informed me that he know one little punk who needed to be pounded into the ground headfirst. He also said that he would avoid seeing the little prick because that was what would occur, and he figured I didn't want to see him in jail.

Real man. Brains and brawn, and knows how to treat a lady.

And all mine.

At one point, I had to speak via phone to a client of my former employers. The client-- who has alcohol problems- went off on me personally big time, for no real reason. And was really abusive. I got the information I needed from him, and later told my boss, who shrugged it off. Later, the same boss told me that he, his employees and his clients can treat me however they want and I have no say in the matter.

A few months later, I went to the dentist. He told me a story about one of his patients, and older woman, who was actually very mean to the technicans. He told her point blank that her behavior was unacceptable, and she could not treat his employees that way. And her behavior changed.

Former boss: not a man

OTOH, I need a couple of weeks to get moved to the new house, which has the big garden and greenhouse, so maybe this is a blessing. Two or three more weeks until I can dig up the dirt and start prepping.

I'm back in the garden business, and the canning and preserving business, and thank God for that. If I can put up half of what I used to, I won't miss working one iota. It was just for groceries anyway. And I'd rather eat my dilly beans out of a jar than go back to work for any of those spoiled little brats.

Many years ago, I was camped with three other guys on a lake in northern Saskatchewan. We were doing a radiometric survey for uranium. Across the bay, there was a Cree Indian family, a couple with kids, camped, and doing some commercial fishing. The guy rowed over, and presented us with a large lake whitefish, and proceeded to roast it over the fire for us. He gutted it, and then whittled a willow stick to a fattish "sword" profile, and slipped through the mouth of the fish and alongside its spine. Jammed the stick in the ground so the fish was suspended at about a 45 degree angle over the fire. The "thick" side of the fish with the spine got roasted first, then he flipped it over to do the thin side, the cooked spine and meat being strong enough to support the fish while the thin side cooked.

Fish roasted in its skin, in its own juices. It was amazing. Later, I went to his camp, and gave him some help getting his outboard motor running, so it was a fair trade.

503 I walked into the little gas station/store/joint a few days ago. A buddy of mine used to run it, but retired and sold it, so it's under new management. When I walked in, some woman customer was just in the process of blessing out the clerk, who was the new owner.

He took about 10 seconds of it, then told her, "Get out, I don't want you, or your money in my store. And don't come back in here." He just did it matter of factly, and didn't get really upset at all. The woman was shocked, how dare you talk to me like that. She quickly learned that was a independent businessman. He didn't have to take her shit.

Some real estate type learned that from me, that I don't take shit about 20 years. My father had agreed to do something, help him fix up a little "dove field" in a local path. He called down here, got me, and started trying to bless me out because he "expected" this and that to be done by now and all that. I explained that dear old Dad told him we'd get around to it when we got around to it, and nobody bosses me around like that, so the deal was off.

He realized I wasn't joking, and soon tried to make up. He was used to doing business that way, I think. Different cultures, I guess. I didn't budge, and told him never bother me or Dad again. I don't think he could really believe it.

Some people get handed this. This guy was one of them. Steady job at the same place for the majority of his professional life, regular raises, vacations, parents who lived out of state that he didn't have to deal with, no waves. None.

A former friend was in the same situation. Her life was on pretty much track-- except for some health issues that insurance took care of-- until she was about 51. Then her husband quit the family job and suddenly things were financially hard. She wigged out, completely changed as a person and became completely fixated on money. Sad really. Two adults working full time with benefits were living paycheck to paycheck. If she could, she would work 24/7/365 to keep hubby happy.

So to answer your question, no, they don't take risks at all.

522 355 All the talk of the beauty of the Frozen North, brings to mind one of the only two semi-poetic bits I've ever written.

The Cold Wind.


The cold wind cuts to the bone, and gives no quarter.

Bracing myself against the onslaught, I trudge through the night, coming home from a long days work at an icy desk. Though a short walk from car, to dock, to boat; each step is agony.

Old injuries speak loudly when the cold wind cuts to the bone.

Warmth awaits belowdecks, yet strangely, I linger upon the pier. Gazing slowly around, I take in the trawlers, the sloops and cruisers around me. Up on the hard rest the weary, awaiting renewal with paint, props and the attention of owners and shipwrights.

Lights framed by glowing halos, the waterfront, devoid of wanderers to join me, brings warmth to my soul.

In spite of the cold wind, that cuts to the bone.

I am home.



Written exactly as experienced, moments after having arrived home at the boat after a long day's work on a bitter cold day into night. Feb., 2004.

537 The Internet says the origin of "Bless out" is Medieval. A person was crazy or otherwise not in their right mind or something, ergo he's possessed by demons. A priest would thus come and exorcise the demons. He would give/say blessings, usually forcefully over the person. He was thus "blessing out the demon".

And that is supposed to be origin of the phrase.

553 reL Fed Arm ammo. Likely all true claims without much weaseling. Weighed drops can be automated. I have one of those scales on my bench. A little tinkering would be needed to automate the drop from the scale pan to the drop tube, but nothing huge.

Hand seating? Bit of leeway as to what that means. I'd want to see some run-out numbers on necks and bullets. They don'[t say what dies and press they use. Seems to me that would matter more than hand placement vs crop tube for the bullets.

We sailed on the AK State Ferry in January, through the inside passage from Bellingham WA to Juneau, and then caught the "senate express" which doesn't usually run except when the state senate is convening. Those rich state senators from Anchorage need their vehicles in Juneau, so they have a special ferry cross the Gulf of Alaska, and we caught the deadhead back. Never again. The inside passage was fine, but crossing the Gulf of Alaska in January made me and the boy sicker than I've ever been. They didn't even bother to run the food service on the crossing. We made it to Whittier, but that's it for me. I'll stick to Resurrection Bay or Katchemak Bay, but not the open ocean, thanks.

Those rich state senators from Anchorage need their vehicles in Juneau, so they have a special ferry cross the Gulf of Alaska, and we caught the deadhead back. Never again. The inside passage was fine, but crossing the Gulf of Alaska in January made me and the boy sicker than I've ever been. They didn't even bother to run the food service on the crossing. We made it to Whittier, but that's it for me. I'll stick to Resurrection Bay or Katchemak Bay, but not the open ocean, thanks.

Seas like that, only serve to remind the mariner that is indeed, alive.

They are to be relished, not fought.

I could tell of similar of my logbook of 39 States and +300k motorcycle miles, mostly on Gold Wings, across much of our Lower 48 States.

Suffice to say, a heated suit, gloves, socks and helmet liner were vital while riding through New Mexico snowstorms.

And the rainwear when riding though Oklahoma thunder and lightning storms, was vital.

But the glory of the vivid show of the lights through the clouds, made every mile an epic adventure, each to itself.

Point is. ACCUMULATE life. Don't merely live it.

Gather it in, with gusto.

593 Now for something completely different.

How many know of a three-sided lp? Yes, I know of one, and have actually played it. There was the 'A' side and the 'B-1' and 'B-2' side (parallel grooves on the 'B' side). When you played the 'B' side, you never knew which track you were going to get.

(The things kids today miss with cds and mp3 players. Sort of like good album cover art/puzzles.)

594 RickZ #575: How many know of a three-sided lp?

You know those original "floppy disks," magazine inserts you could play on your record player?

Mad Magazine did one that had something like five or eight different tracks and depending on which one the needle picked up you'd get the same song, different ending.

I think I still have my copy, stored, with some other old "floppies" of the same vintage, with the LP collection, down in the catacombs.

I also think I found it online once, possibly on YouTube, all the tracks in one recording, but it's just not the same, of course.

Bacon, egg and cheese on a roll*, with ketchup and Tabasco.

* If the roll is untoasted, a fried egg (so the runny yolk can soak into the bread), if toasted then scrambled and cooked into one flat piece then properly folded to fit the roll. But either way, always with ketchup and Tabasco.

That's pretty good stuff. Learning to stop defending yourself over every little thing, own up and keep on trucking makes things a lot easier on you in the long run. Nobody's perfect, we're all just a bunch of bald monkeys clinging to a rock hurtling through space.

I'd add another key to happiness.

Honesty. Tell the truth, in everything. You don't have to keep track of what you say if you tell the truth. You don't have to worry about being caught in a lie, if you tell the truth. And the looks people give you, when you say what you really think while they were expecting polite affirmation for their stupidity? Priceless.

I can agree with that. There comes times though when the Truth is not wanted. For example, lets say a crime where someone is murdered. 80-90% of time, the perp is someone who is known to the victim.

This information is generally not well received by other family members.

This can also apply, and usually does in the same percentages, to other less deadly events. Looking for a reason something bad happens? Look to a family member or someone else known to you.

Yes, I understand that you cannot build a healthy economy by taxing everyone to death just to create more gubbmint jobs. And I did work in the private sector for almost 20 years before I signed on with the state (because the job paid well and did'nt require a 100+ mile commute every day like the one I had at the time) Still, that imaginary paycheck I get twice a month gets me real food and a real roof over our heads so I must be contributing something to the economy after all.

748 A stake is too slow, not painful enough, and leaves no parts for further processing and transplantation.

Think Larry Niven Organlegger series.

Never been there. My Mom put beans in the chili as a meat extender. She was one of those crazy Depression Era kids; meat was a luxury and old habits die hard.

752 "Hot Dog" chili differs from "regular" chili because the meat is broken down into fine increments, so as to pour over a hot dog.

I add beans. Eat me.

Beans in chili is nothing more than an inexpensive way to add protein and stretch the chili pot.

And the purists can bite moi.

I make my own Italian heroes. Balsamic and olive oil, with dried oregano and basil, along with imported Auricchio provolone and fresh roasted red peppers, along with the usual cold cuts (slicing pepperoni, salami, smoked ham, mortadella with pistachios and hot sopresatta).

That's exactly what it was all about!

It was Peasant Food.

Whenever I make burritos/tacos it is 40% peppers and onions.

Read this: it is 80/20 beef to fat, because flavor.

You know what I'm talking about, but you've bastardized it.

...and it sounds really, really good.

757 NOOD!

You fuckers were supposed to say something.

Oh yeah, and sliced hot peppers and onions. Wrap it up in plastic wrap and let it sit for an hour, just to let the cold cuts come to room temp.

Posted by: RickZ at April 13, 2017 07:00 AM (zlQMj)

759 Dood! Stop it! It sounds freaking awesome!

...there is a New Thread and nobody called us.
