Buggy whip. 8-track tape, MP3 Items that have disappeared.

MP3, the digital audio coding format, changed the way we listen to music and drove the adoption of countless new devices over the last couple of decades. And now, it’s dead. The developer of the format announced this week that it has officially terminated its licensing program.

GENDER IS NOT NEUTRAL Skirts for boys?

A north London private school has drawn up plans to introduce gender-neutral uniforms in response to a growing number of pupils questioning their gender identity.

Highgate school currently has an option for girls to wear a grey pleated skirt, but the school is consulting on a mix-and-match uniform policy which will not specify a different requirement for boys and girls

What's the old saying? Never judge a book by its cover. A white feminist cuts off her dreadlocks.

Everything changed when I stopped traveling, started investing in local activist projects, and began building a broader, more multiracial community.

For the first time, my peers had lots of questions and critiques about my choice to wear dreadlocks.

The responses other activists had to my hair ranged from mild irritation to downright anger.

People were constantly making comments under their breath when they passed me about “cultural appropriation” – I had no idea what that meant.

If you or I are totally wrong at our job, do we get to keep them? Scientists confident that we will make contact with aliens in the next decade.

Both the most cynical person on Earth and the world’s greatest optimist could easily look at everything around them and ask: could this truly be all there is in the universe? Whatever your reason for posing the question, you may have an answer sooner than you think — and that answer is likely to be “no.” Science writer and comedian Ben Miller posits in his book The Aliens Are Coming! The Extraordinary Science Behind Our Search for Life in the Universe that one of the most powerful forces shaping science today is the growing search for life in the universe fueled by the belief that we are not alone. He believes that because of our current technologies, we’ll know about life on the Earth-like planets closest to us within the next ten years.

The ONT Musical Interlude

May 15, 2003, Country singer June Carter Cash, the second wife of Johnny Cash died in Nashville, Tennessee, of complications following heart valve replacement surgery, aged 73. She was a member of the Carter Family, and had hits with Johnny Cash, including the Grammy Award winning songs, 'Jackson', 'Ring Of Fire', (which she co-wrote about their courtship), and 'If I Were A Carpenter.' via thisdayinmusic.com




May 15, 2008, Neil Diamond reached the top of the US Billboard album chart for the first time in his career with ‘Home Before Dark’ the 67-year-old's 29th studio album. His previous highest chart position was in 1973 when the soundtrack to the film Jonathan Livingston Seagull peaked at No.2. At the age of 67, Diamond became the oldest artist to have a US number one, the record was previously held by Bob Dylan in 2006 with ‘Modern Times’ released when he was 65.via thisdayinmusic.com

Facts? Climate alarmists won't let them get in the way of a claim.

The Seattle Times ran a hysterical story about how climate change killed a large tree at the Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle. Cliff Mass, professor of Atmospheric Science at the University of Washington and no climate change skeptic, demolished the Times story in a strongly-worded blog post.

But perhaps more importantly, he goes on to describe the kind of pressure to which he is subjected to not post such corrections because of the ammunition it gives to “deniers”. It is an excellent exposition on the corruption of the scientific method that is rampant in climate science — not just the suppression of dissent, but the suppression of every small corrections of the most exaggerated claims.

It is you, a rat, a lawyer and a politician in a room which one do you prefer? h/t NDH

An email from Corrine Brown's attorney James Smith, circulated to federal criminal defense lawyers throughout Florida, raises questions about the foundation for the dismissal of a juror in the case.

The email says that the jury was "deadlocked" until the juror was dismissed, but that after U.S. District Judge Timothy Corrigan replaced the juror Wednesday, a verdict was reached within eight hours.

The email also challenges prior media reports that the juror's comments dealt with "higher beings."


Too many psychological drugs on the market that don't do the job? Cocaine not Prozac.

The accepted narrative is that drugs used for ‘recreational’ purposes are dangerous: their most serious consequence (if they don’t kill you first) being addiction. According to the American Medical Association, the National Institutes of Health, and other authorities, brain changes caused by the recurrent use of illegal drugs become hard-wired and permanent. Addicts are rendered dysfunctional in relationships, blind to accepted realities, and incapable of controlling impulses – reason enough to withhold recreational drugs, not only from prescribing doctors but from researchers who might study them further.

2 Mandatory Trans

One of the arguments for legalizing abortion was the "right to privacy" between a doctor and a patient... even if that patient wasn't old enough to consent to get pregnant. Indeed, other medical treatments can still require parental consent, or at least notification. Yet this "right to privacy" ceases to be a "right to privacy" when the Progressive Left deem it to be doubleplusungood.

33 "Socialism proposes no adequate substitute for the motive of enlightened selfishness that today is at the basis of all human labor and effort, enterprise and new activity."
William Howard Taft

Taft couldn't conceive that an entire generation could be convinced, one grade at a time, that the government stealing from the rich and giving to everyone else would be desirable.

Last Friday, I overheard a high school student saying, "My household doesn't have enough money. I think the government should take money from you and give it to me. I guess that makes me a communist."

39 Hmmm, very rarely make an appearance on the ONT before most of the right coasters are gone.

Missed the earlier thread about T-Rump and the non-story involving a meeting with Lavrov.

Puzzled by ace's reference to T-Rump acting like an a**hole as prez - honestly not sure what he's talking about.

Of course the whole non-story story is, well, a non-story. A president can declassify anything he wants, it's kind of the rule. So, even if something did happen, it's purely a question of judgement - for which nobody outside a handful of people has even a rudiment of context to assess things.

And, sadly, it's simply unserious to rely on the "intelligence community" for, well, anything, but esp. any assessment of anything involving Trump. Their substantive work has long been dubious in many key areas, but the character, intellect, and behavior of many senior people, and many who blab to the "press", are at a level where they simply can't be taken seriously any longer.

Now - going public and spiking the ball on the bin Laden raid - completely idiotic and indefensible. Even Gates, who may epitomize the "meh" to worse intel community "elites", had enough sense to bark at some idiot WH/NSC person "STFU" as a policy suggestion on that. THAT is some dangerous stupidity - but to be expected from the third-rate people (from the Oval Office on down) who were, incredibly, allowed near power in the US for the last 8 years.

46 I don't know what to say about Neil Diamond.

On one hand, I was bombarded by Neil Diamond songs in my youth, because he was very popular in the late 60's, early 70's, and everybody played his songs. So sometimes when I hear one of his older songs, I get this incredible feeling of happy / melancholy remembrance of that time.

And then, sometimes I listen to his songs closely and remember that a lot of them are kinda stupid.

52 A lovely SpaceX launch this evening.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynMYE64IEKs

It was the fifth flight from LC-39A so far this year, with three more scheduled in June. I think it's safe to say that LC-39A has never seen that kind of launch cadence in its nearly 50 year history.

I watched the first launch from there on TV when I was a kid (Apollo 4). All but one Saturn V launched from there, as well as about 2/3 of the Space Shuttle launches.

Now SpaceX is writing a new chapter in the history of that storied launch pad. It's very exciting.

63 "In like Flynn" is an old reference to Errol Flynn. He had a reputation for being able to quickly get in the nether regions of the ladies at the time.

"In like Flint" was the sequel to a sort of campy spy-spoofish movie starring Jame Coburn as "Flint", international man of mystery.

It was pretty cool. The plot was about a international feminist conspiracy to install a matriarchy in America. Hell, the feminists would probably be triggered by it now.

78

"In like Flint" was the sequel to a sort of campy spy-spoofish movie starring Jame Coburn as "Flint", international man of mystery.

It was pretty cool. The plot was about a international feminist conspiracy to install a matriarchy in America. Hell, the feminists would probably be triggered by it now.

Actually... the REAL story is buried...

Apparently this got leaked because the NSA started sending emails out, about what was said in that meeting...

meaning... they are both monitoring, and second guessing, the President of the US... and then leaking it because they don't like his actions.

That good Sir, is Treason. THEY are the ones who outed the source... they are the ones who got this information out into the public.... they are the ones who told that Third Party Intelligence source that Trump told the Russians about them....

115 Literally the only people who complain about "cultural appropriation" are racists.

By definition, the entire complaint is that, somehow, your genes mean you should be forbidden certain fashions, behaviors or foods.

If that ain't racist, nothing is.

WRT Alien Contact, basically, the ignorant people are the people who say "yes," and the people who say "no." I mean ignorant in the literal sense here, in that they don't have the information needed.

146 MP3 hasn't disappeared and will not for some time, if ever. What has happened: Fraunhofer is no longer able to collect royalties on it. It's free now.

It still works just as well as it ever did, and one of the reasons it is still around is that lots of people have devices that use it, plus lots of music in the format. So people have MP3s, they have devices that play MP3, and they are still using it and listening to it.

MP3 is now MP-Free. Do people stop using something just because it's free now? Not hardly. Software like iTunes will now universally add MP3 support, since it's free now. It will be used more now, not less.

AAC is better technology than MP3, and lots of companies have switched to using AAC, especially for Internet music. But both of those are lossy encoders... for storing my music I use lossless, a format called FLAC (which is free; it's right in the name: Free Lossless Audo Coder, FLAC). If I'm listening to music on good headphones at home, it's FLAC. If I'm in a noisy car, MP3 is in practice as good as AAC.

And anyway AAC will be free within a few years too! I'm not sure exactly when, because you know the lawyers did their best to tie things up for as long as possible, but AAC has been around for about a couple of decades now and patents are supposed to expire after 20 years.

Please do not make underground bunkers out of containers either. The roof of a shipping container is relatively flimsy. They don't carry the weight of the containers above when they are stacked--the containers only bear at the corners. There is an air gap between them when stacked.

Plex can share a directory and (in theory) automatically apply thumbnail or downloaded images to help you pick the icon off the screen. Add the directory, give it a title, and it should fill in the rest.

I use it to share the SXSW collection (free as in beer) with some friends who are really into music. Huge directory.

You can't be responsible for other people's sorrows and misfortunes. Being encouraging doesn't hurt, but some people worship pain.
This morning, for some reason, I was in a pretty homicidal mood. Really, if the wrong person said the wrong thing to me this morning, I might have throttled them.
I knew I was in bad frame of mind, so I avoided most people this morning, and most people avoided me.

Well, if it's depression, there's no point in arguing, all you do is temporarily drag a down person a little lower.

It's not susceptible to argument, that's a misunderstanding of the problem.

If it isn't actual depression, there's probably still no point in arguing, especially if you already tried that and it didn't work.

Mind you, this pair of incapacities (feeling bad for no explainable reason and continuing to argue when it doesn't work) are responsible for a substantial percentage of human misery, so while stopping might help, not stopping does indeed put you in an apparent majority.

200 Actually, I don't think ripping DVDs is illegal. Where you get into trouble is if you upload it and share with others or sell bootleg copies.

Most of the bittorrent programs default to have you share your files as you download it. But that was from like 10 years ago. I haven't kept up with the rules/laws as I don't mess with those programs anymore.

(I think that means we'll need a second gun. Wouldn't want the first one to get lonely!). I told him we should go to a meeting of the local Republican party, walk in and say "We're new to the county.

Heh. Speaking as a fundamentally miserable human being, I can say that what is talked about and how it is talked about with another person can make a huge difference. Sometimes getting perspective and an objective view can be helpful at least intellectually. The problem is that one doesn't always know how the other person is going to take it, or what would be most beneficial in a given situation.

Maybe. I do know that a buddy of mine in the service, Walt, had a hair-trigger temper. He was Irish. Loved to drink, and so did I, and most of our friends. Anyhow, the more he drank, the funnier and and more amiable he became, causing a friend to make the observation the phrase "A potted Walt never boils".

I'm the same way Miley.

However, have you considered that the problem is not you, but the people around you? I've known people who only have relationships as a means of reflecting their own thoughts and beliefs. Consequently, they only want you to listen to them and agree. They don't want their problems discussed or solved. They don't want a free exchange of ideas; just confirmation of their own beliefs.

Which is why I ended two close friendships in the past year, and, to be honest, it's made my life happier. Which makes no sense at all.

And he got a shot a bunch of times as well. And hell, it seems like to know Mannix was to eventually want to kill him. They had a bunch of episodes where some old buddy of his, from the Army or college, or high school, would come back and try to kill him.

--

If a liberal calls you "angry" it means that you are too smart and are presenting an argument that they cannot dispute.

So.... ANGRY!!!

Also... if, for example, you have a disagreement with a friend who then asks "what's wrong" and after explaining "what's wrong" YOU get called judgemental, it means they're a perfectionist who can't handle any sort of criticism or even feedback.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at May 15, 2017 11:04 PM (0deF2)

It would be tough. The roof is really thin material, and it's arched to make the connex drain. So you're not working with a flat.

It could be used as a form to cast concrete, but the roof would need temporary shoring. The walks can't really withstand earth pressure either, and the box as a whole would not withstand unequal earth pressure from one side to the other.

They are a very efficient design for their intended purpose. As a part of that efficiency they don't waste material where it's not needed. As soon as humans try to turn them into habitation that all goes in it's ear.

The articles like the one linked are such nonsense I cannot even tell you. Those boxes were cut apart and rei forced with miles of additional steel and welding.

For a look. Full stop. And bragging rights to other wealthy lefties that it's somehow responsible or sustainable. The joke is on the losers who paid more to live with 8'-6" ceilings and long narrow rooms.

It's always been anti-nationalism for the left. The entirety of WWII was International Socialists vs. National Socialists. When the Russians were Internationalists, the left favored them. Now they're Nationalists, therefore, the devil.

"Europe" is their New Last Hope.

This is kind of a think a lot of people know but it the commentary is a little sparse. There isn't much recent scholarship on the history of collectivism (partly because the scholars are mainly on Team Let's Not Talk About That).

"Globalism" is the new, slightly less-hostile to the rich version of collectivism. Basically gives the billionaires a seat at the oligarch table.

Wheeler also told us, "I have a source inside the police department that has looked at me straight in the eye and said, 'Rod, we were told to stand down on this case and I can't share any information with you.' Now, that is highly unusual for a murder investigation, especially from a police department.

391 "Most serious accusation made against a sitting presdent" Dershowitz gravely intones on CNN. Funny word, that. I seem to recall an accusation that a shit-kicking clerk who wound up being president was practically giddy to tell Joe Stalin we had successfully tested the atomic bomb. Oh, my bad -- not an accusation per se. More like a historical fact.

392 Dammit, I was just getting excited thinking about those possibilities and fate decided to ruin it. The smell of skunk just started diffusing through.

Some damn skunk was probably smelling some of the cat food residue, and encountered one of the cats. That happened a lot last year, now it may be starting up again.

So far, none of the cats have gotten sprayed. Years ago, that happened. Let a cat in, and damn, she was covered in skunk spray.....

Wheeler also told us, "I have a source inside
the police department that has looked at me straight in the eye and
said, 'Rod, we were told to stand down on this case and I can't share
any information with you.' Now, that is highly unusual for a murder
investigation, especially from a police department. Again, I don't think
it comes from the chief's office, but I do believe there is a

406 It would be tough. The roof is really thin material, and it's arched to make the connex drain. So you're not working with a flat.

It could be used as a form to cast concrete, but the roof would need temporary shoring. The walks can't really withstand earth pressure either, and the box as a whole would not withstand unequal earth pressure from one side to the other.

They are a very efficient design for their intended purpose. As a part of that efficiency they don't waste material where it's not needed. As soon as humans try to turn them into habitation that all goes in it's ear.

The articles like the one linked are such nonsense I cannot even tell you. Those boxes were cut apart and rei forced with miles of additional steel and welding.

For a look. Full stop. And bragging rights to other wealthy lefties that it's somehow responsible or sustainable. The joke is on the losers who paid more to live with 8'-6" ceilings and long narrow rooms.

3. People will climb a tree to say something hurtful, when they can stand on the ground and speak about love.
4. A lot of people are in life to make themselves better at your cost.
5. Your hard work doesn't really matter. Some people are all about themselves and will step on you in a microsecond.
6. A lot of people who claim to be your friend actually aren't.
7. Gossip is more satisfying than the truth.
8. People could care less that they've hurt your feelings.
9. Your list of friends is shrinking daily.

Men aren't meant to be tamed - neither are women, btw - we're supposed to be beasts, but beasts who control themselves. Control by others or by what we think others want is the death of humanity.

460 What I've learned this week:
1. It's tough to be a nice guy.
2. You can care about people who absolutely have no desire to care back.
3. People will climb a tree to say something hurtful, when they can stand on the ground and speak about love.
4. A lot of people are in life to make themselves better at your cost.
5. Your hard work doesn't really matter. Some people are all about themselves and will step on you in a microsecond.
6. A lot of people who claim to be your friend actually aren't.
7. Gossip is more satisfying than the truth.
8. People could care less that they've hurt your feelings.
9. Your list of friends is shrinking daily.
10. God and your family are the best friends you have.

Yes you just don't bury the container without some modification. Besides reinforcement, there is a water proofing process that is to be completed. The containers though are inexpensive ( or were) and are a perfect starting framework in which to construct a bunker .

475 When Jesus took up a whip and drove the moneychangers out of the Temple, he was not being "nice".

He was though, being GOOD, and without sin.

"Nice", can be one of the worst of the sins, when it confines one to a prison of limited expression, experience or emotion.

You're made in God's image. Find your whip, and drive the limitations out of your life.

Were I to shoot a burglar breaking into my house, that would be not being "nice", but certainly, being Righteous.

Do the same to the thoughts that break in and rob you of vigor, virility, vitality and victory.

Violence is not always a sin.

See above Jesus reference.

That nice guys finish last thing, has little to with being nice. imo. It's not fate, it's more a choice. It sounds boring. It's not. It's attractive to be with someone who knows themself, who has self respect and treats you the same.

If I were going to build an underground bunker here, I have the perfect start. There's a disused dry well, here, that was supposed to receive excess runoff from the roof cistern. Hasn't worked in years, and it is indeed dry. Made of 3-foot corrugated steel culvert pipe, set vertically, with a sheet metal lid, and it's about 20 feet deep.

So, ventilate it, because odds are the air down there is oxygen-deficient, set a ladder in it. Go down with metal saw and cut a door in the side. Just start tunneling out from that door, with the roof of the tunnel some 14 feet below grade. Put timber sets every few feet, just like in a real mine adit.

The most direct route. And I *DO NOT CARE* how olde or out of shape ye are. Do it anyway.

Do some research, and find a reputable Krav Maga martial arts school in your area.

You have to embrace a VERY physical aspect to changing your internal paradigms. At our age, it's too late to take half measures.

In less than one year, you'll have discovered your Internal Badass. And, by time a year is up, you'll be surprised to learn that a good portion of that that Internal Badass is actually up to the challenge in real life.

That will drive certain changes in your psyche and personality, that will astound you. No, you won't become an aggressive, sterioided asshole.

But you will discover a new and EARNED confidence.

Tumblers will begin to fall into place, from there.

Were you local, I could nearly duplicate the effect with a solid six-months of weekly lessons at the range. But shooting bulls eyes isn't as directly empowering as knowing that you're not the "kickee" in an ass kicking contest.

Doesn't and won't instantly make you an Alpha Male. But damn sure will elevate you from being a Zeta, right?

521 The shamed transracial paper highlights how academia perpetuates and normalizes stupidity, where in prior generations, it would have never got off the ground in the first place.

In valuing the idea of "transracial" it lists three assumptions, the first of which is:

"(1) We accept the following premises about trans people and the rights and dignity to which they are entitled....."

There are likely a mix of morons and lurkers here whom differ on their approach to people with mental illness, but that statement is where the stupid idea should die on the vine and certainly not be presumed. A "transracial" person is an idiot and therefore has no "rights and dignity" to which they are to be deemed "entitled." They are to laughed and humiliated out of the room. That is how my generation and others before it dealt with such fools. THAT is where America is failing - not calling an idiot an idiot.

Well, here's what I'm talking about.

I looked up Krav Maga here in Ft. Worth. Not only does my schedule not accommodate attending, but I don't have the money for it either.

I have not been able to figure out how to overcome these "limitations" yet.

532 Sort of a long those lines. Be nice, not at your expense. Be nice to yourself, be as nice to others. "They say" you can't truly love someone until you love yourself. Everything, it seems to me, starts with you.

That nice guys finish last thing, has little to with being nice. imo. It's not fate, it's more a choice. It sounds boring. It's not. It's attractive to be with someone who knows themself, who has self respect and treats you the same.
Anyway, 2 cents. Have a good night everyone.

I have FRIENDS in the D/FW area.

Perchance you were to write to the addy in my nic, I'd begin to make calls to certain people. People who are possessed of highly developed skills and extensive knowledge in certain areas of interest and discussion.

Introductions could be made, you see.

You might have to travel to the areas around Plano or Carrollton, but still.

As CW said, when I'm there I have no idea how to start. Everybody I see is busy doing something. I'd just be interrupting them.

I attend a gym (or will now again that I'm off graveyard) and hit the range not as much as I should, but it's the same there. Everybody is busy doing what they're doing, and look like they don't want to be interrupted (plus it's all guys at the range).

I look at people, and nobody looks back. So I just go about my business. I spend 99% of my time by myself.

In this case, Unc., ir really does have to be Krav.

Here's why.

It's the only effective "martial art", that concentrates on teaching that damn near any object at hand is a weapon, and how to use that weapon to the most fearsome effect, fastest.

Doesn't give a damn as to form, style or pose. Only to "stop the bad guy".

Not that the other Martial Arts aren't EFFECTIVE. They are.

But they take too much time to get there. And once there, take too much time in studying counter-styles.

Krav is straight up dirty, from beginning, through middle and to the end.

No points for style or kata. Just WIN.

It is the Trumpian Art.

The pistons, I had to pound out of the block using a BFH and a 2-foot length of angle iron. Two came out "intact", and the rest, I knocked the heads out of. But they were past saving, anyway. If the block isn't cracked, it should clean up at .030 oversize.

A bunch of valves are stuck in the head, too.

Anyway, all that hammering and toting of heavy iron has made me tires, so I am off to bed. Night, all.

That precise reason, by beloved brother, is why I must respectfully decline your specific purpose.

I'd love to meet them, as polite company of course.

Alas, I'm at present, attached. Though I've never made it a secret either to Teh Horde or at my own long moribund site, it is still, a fact, even though I "advertise" it, minimally.

And HONOR demands, at the very least, that I not "play that game", and conduct myself in a manor that would befall dishonor to me, your or Teh Horde, in the doing.

My circumstance is indeed, fluid. But until such time as things are resolved, they are not.

I'll still look forward to attending your wedding. But as a FRIEND, and likely not so much as a "prospect" to the Nieces.

But I'd still enjoy meeting them, at least in passing.

"He said that prior to the trial God had told him that the Congresswoman was not guilty and that after listening to the evidence and hearing closing arguments he still believed that she was not guilty."

Smith said that, "despite the fact that there was no evidence that the juror was interfering with deliberations and stated that he was ultimately basing his vote on the evidence and the instructions, the judge decided to kick him off."


So God told him that Corrine Brown was innocent, but he was "ultimately basing his vote on the evidence". Alrighty then.

586 Trump is a racist scumbag just like his lover Putin. He has the mind of Kim Jong and nuclear arsenal of America at his disposal. He must be neutralized.

587 Plus, it omitted Wynn's signature idiocy: "unforced error".
