Overnight Open Thread (1 Jul 2017)

On July 1st, 1863, the Battle of Gettysburg began.

Port O Potty Attack!


In Russia, portable toilets attack you!
h/t tmi3rd

Russia

So the same folks in the tech industry that go ape shit over any contact between Russia and Trump officials fight to keep ties to Russia spy service. WTF?

Happy Birthday Canada

H-Bombs In Space

A very scary light show: exploding H-Bombs in space.
h/t Maggies Farm

Impeachment

I'm surprised it's only 25 Democrats. House Dems back bill to impeach trump based on Twitter posts. Good luck with that.

Ironically, as WarNewsUpdates points out, this is how the Kremlin took care of "troublesome" members.

Snowbirds

Facebook

I don't think so Zuckerberg. Facebook can fill the role played by Churches.

Identity Intel Ops

"Identity Intel Ops" turn US Special Operators into combat detectives. Pretty cool read.

Unprofessional

This looks absolutely ridiculous and does not imply professional behavior. FBI employees support sacked director by wearing 'Comey is my homey' T-shirts to bureau's Family Day.

Cat Video

NSFW!

Tonight's ONT brought to you by 1st Sony Walkman released on this day in 1979:

Posted by: Bossy Conservative....unfrozen caveman moron at July 01, 2017 11:02 PM (S6Pax)

43 Willowed from the last thread.

Some folks were talking Beatles.

I don't have much of an opinion on the Beatles per se, but they're songs can tend to be overrated. It was a pop band. They did pop. They did really good pop and were very experimental, but they were pop.

It was mentioned above that many are resentful and personally I think that has to do around the cult of personality that developed around the band and that there is only one right and correct opinion to be had about them. (As an aside, they don't get a lot of radio play cuz the fucking royalties are sky high.)

Take any other stupidly influential band like Zepplin, Sabbath or fucking Rush and people will have their opinions. *Their* opinions. Honest opinions, not the opinions they're supposed to have. Those three bands are probably just as influential as The Beatles (I'd argue Sabbath a little more so) but those three also get tons more play on modern active and classic rock stations. Also, none of the members of those bands have achieved the level of dick sucking adoration from critics like the Beatles (although Neil Peart might be worshipped as the second coming of Christ).

The Beatles have left their mark on pop and rock. Tons of old timers cite them as influences. Lemmy Kilmister called them the greatest rock band ever. Hey, if they're good enough for Lemmy that's good enough for me. But the fucking mindless worship has to stop. They were a band, they wrote songs. Good songs, they did some shit songs, Abbey Road was really good, but people need to stop chugging their cocks.

It's the kind of documentary you start watching and then restart it half way through because it's about 150% better than you thought it would be.

Dowd was there through the 50s, 60s, and 70s on almost all the important American tracks.

102 When the Beatles stuck to rock and roll they were pretty good, but like a lot of the successful bands, they could afford unlimited supplies of drugs. Oops. They peaked about '66 and their output after that was uneven. "Hey Jude" and "Let It Be" were both McCartney tunes. I can't think of any other Lennon tunes that came close to popular acclaim.

Armed with a longbow as well as a Scottish broadsword, Churchill took out a German Feldwebel (staff sergeant) with a barbed arrow. He is the only British soldier known to have killed an enemy combatant during WWII with a longbow.

151 Possums are really pretty easy to deal with, although you don't want to get bit with those little sharp teeth. You might see if you can stamp your feet or scare him enough to play dead, they really will do that.

But if you can do it without freaking out, 2 or 3 big heavy towels, take the laundry basket off (they're slow), throw the towels on him, wrap him up as you scoop him up, and hustle him out the door. They're not near as dangerous as a raccoon.

He was a pretty cool dude in real life. I remember once a younger dude came up to him and told him he used to have to hide his motorhead records in the album sleeves of some faggt pop stuff so his parents wouldn't find them. The kid was embarrassed telling lemmy this. Lemmy picks his glass up, raises it up and says "that's ok, you got to keep the records didn't you?" It was like the kid got the pope's blessing. lol

170 I need some advice. My dog just brought in s full grown opossum and deposited him in the kitchen. Of course, husband is out of town, so I cover it with two laundry baskets and weighed it down with the vacum cleaner
Called husband and he said slide it out the door. Our kitchen has steps so I'm not sliding anything. I called animal control and got a recording telling me to call back between 9 and 5 min thru fri. What else can I do?

Posted by: Abby at July 01, 2017 11:23 PM (HBU7W)

Open the kitchen door. Scoot the laundry baskets to the open door, so they block the doorway as much as possible. Tilt up the outside edge of the baskets so Br'er Possum can escape out the door. If it's playing possum, administer a kick to the basket.

Nononono!!! That poor possum is probably just looking for its mother!

Gently slide the box as close to the door as possible. Prop the door open. Get an old sheet and and anchor it in a semi circle behind the box so the possum has nowhere to go but outside. Release possum and pray. Hard.

194 I was standing in the visitor's center at Gettysburg a while back and
thought "Hmmmm, I wonder why nobody in the Civil War had guys who used
longbows -- given the range and lethality and rate of fire? I mean, not a
lot of guys, but some.

After Waterloo a British officer suggested the same. (I've forgotten the incident where he thought they'd have been useful. It's reported in David Howarth's Waterloo: A Near Run Thing. Maybe the later massive French cavalry charges where they were mainly loitering around the squares with the squares reserving their fire?) But you can train a peasant or a townie how to use a flintlock musket (let alone a percussion cap weapon) to deadly effect in an afternoon; it takes years and constant training to make an effective combat bowman. And you could use a handful of real riflemen, contrasted with smoothbore use, for any required long-range fire regarding your afterthought.

Don't recall any "climate change" idiocy. Jeebus. Tell me you're kidding, please!

One reason I remain resolutely pessimistic. Ludicrous, heavy-handed lysenkoism has been absorbed by so much of the population (though, notwithstanding some "surveys", overall, when given a clear concrete choice, Americans side with practicality and economic opportunity over pseudo-science activism).

So you're up late for a right coaster. Poring over gun stuff for a gun thread, or food stuff for a food thread?

I am kicking myself for failing to submit, in a timely manner, for the moron cookbook, a recipe for cooking bacon with a semi-auto rifle barrel. Not that I've done it, but it seems pretty simple. I think there's even a uTube video of Ted Cruz doing this at a range in TX.

Of course the only semi-autos I own, M1s of both sizes, really aren't suitable. The Garand of course has barely any exposed top metal, and the carbine has that teeny little barrel, and wimpish ammo that probably doesn't generate that much heat (have never checked).

In choosing components for my first AR build, maybe I should incorporate a bacon-cooking functionality?

Abby, somehow a bat got into my house and I was pretty freaked out. My husband had passed away and I had to deal with it on my own.

So I calmed myself down and started using my brain. First I closed all of the doors in the hallway so it couldn't flap its way into another room. Then I did essentially what was suggested upthread - trapped it with a Tupperware container, then slipped the lid underneath. Then I carried it out front in the yard where the cat wouldn't get it, and flung it into the ivy.

342 We need a do-over for a second edition of the cookbook, because I would bet most of us don't use recipes, and can't refine our methods into words that would result in success for another cook. I have lots of good shit that I make, but transcribing it? I really don't even know how cookbook authors can do it. My mom is 78 now, and her bread methodology is going with her, because no matter how she tries to teach us, it doesn't work. Not the same, anyway.

Posted by: kalneva at July 02, 2017 12:01 AM (vhW1R)



I hope it makes into the cookbook, for exactly the above reasons.

I'd sent Bluebell a process by which to accurately capture ANY *throw together* recipe, be it Granny's or Elle May's, or anyone from Teh Horde.

It works. And you can reduce your best "bit of this, bit of that" cooking, into a defineable recipe, INCLUDING, tricks of process, technique and the ART of the cook.

Y'all be sure to encourage Bluebell to SOMEWHERE, (even in an afterword), to include this chapter.

Because many of you need to save Granny's finest efforts for posterity, pride and provenance.

It needs to be in the book. Please let her know this.

This is a good answer. I'd like you on the desert island with me.

Also.. WTF Abby, how are you not totally freaking out?

Once upon a time, we trapped a possum in our yard that had to be relocated and he was thrashing around the trap like he was in the WWF. Totally freaked my mom out, and this was a posusm. In a cage. Outside.

/kind of sure your husband owes you jewelry for making you deal with this on your own, and not calling his best male friend to take over.

345 Her Majesty was out with Carmen and Aida the other evening when they cross pointed a possum inside the fence line. She leashed the girls and roused me out of bed to take care of the critter.

I got a shovel and kept tapping at it to keep it moving and, hissing and spitting all the way, it scuttled along the fence and out the gate.

"Playing possum" is actually an involuntary reaction, like fainting.

We wouldn't hurt a possum. Snakes are executed whether they're venomous or not. Sentence first, trial later.

Critters that ripple are generally members of the weasel family.

Possums are giant mutant marsupial rats.
As such they carry an especially virulent form of bubonic plague.

You might want to add a few squirts of liquid dish detergent to the water in the bucket, and mix it well. Helps wet the mouse's fur, so it sinks faster, and drowns more quickly. Otherwise, they can float for hours on the air trapped in their coat.

360 The War on the Rats, several summers, ago, when they attempted to steal my tomato crop (planted in 15-gal. containers), was won decisively with the old-fashioned, kinetic kill, sometimes messy spring traps with the square-U wire hammer of death.

Placed inside the pots - out of reach of most critters. Baited first with peanut butter - poor results; then a block of cheap cheddar cheese (right out of my childhood cartoons), with great results.

"Thwack" in the middle of the night. The boss would say "a funeral tomorrow". The funeral consisted of tossing the former thief into the canyon, for various players to consume.

Got about 11 or 12 - then no more. Must have killed a whole nest. A ratocide, as it were.

And one morning, early, heard some odd sounds that I unfortunately correctly analyzed. A crow - dumbass - had managed to get down into a container and get his head stuck in a trap (must have smarted). He was flapping around, unable to shake it off. Pinned the trap down with a spade shovel, and used one of those grabbers to snag and open the trap. Bird just nonchalantly walked away, then took flight.

363 Fun Facts about Possums, from one of those science shows about Continental Drift:

Back in the Jurassic, all the land masses were combined - Planet Earth had one continent, and one ocean, and both were YUGE. But mysterious things happened deep, deep beneath the crust and all of these plates broke up and started to move. The plates making up what is now Australia, Antarctica, and South America stuck together the longest, and this land mass is where the marsupials, the earliest form of mammals, developed.

Australia broke off on it own and retained them as the dominant life form; you know what happened to Antarctica. South America was one full of marsupials, but they eventually got replaced except for a few that figured out how to survive in the great rain forest that has been there forever. When North America crashed into South America about 20 million years ago, some of these critters managed to migrate north across the new land bridge and become established in the great forests they found up here.

and so, the Possums we see running around in the woods really are more closely related to the Kangaroos and Wombats in Australia than they are to anything else on this continent. Which, to me at least, really does make them kinda cool.

370 This blog has posted unequivocal clues pointing to the identity of Jack the Ripper for several months. No one has come forth with his name so having said the name time and again in very thinly disguised code here it is in plain text. Jack the Ripper was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. There I have said it publicly on the internet for everyone to see. With that simple revelation you can now easily decipher why each of the clues point to one and only one person, Conan Doyle.

384 LASue, thanks for reading that article. Not that my assessment of things could be much darker, but the mind simply boggles at the idea that Comey could be popular among the rank and file. Of course, some of them might be as clueless about the law, and the rule of law, as half of the US seems to be (paradoxical as that seems), and like Comey for some internal, touchy-feely personnel policy reasons (dunno).

Not long ago there was a major agency head who seemed popular with the troops, as he sincerely did put a lot of energy into morale and lifestyle issues. Of course substantively he had no business being in the job, but this has been the Beltway since the Clinton era (with some notable exceptions under Dubya and now of course under der Trumpenfuhrer).

Yeah that's the problem I had. It took a few years to crack the code on my grandmother's recipes. One reason is it was half Italian, half English, some written in pencil that was faded, a few splatters, and the book itself totally looked like Sean Connery's grail diary in Indiana jones. I had the wife go to my grandmother's house a few years before she died, and stand right next to her and watch her actually do it just to get the meatball and gravy recipe, and I told her to write down all of it.

Well I asked the wife for them, and she hands me a stack of papers, because it seems each recipe is 3-4 pages because she literally recorded everything. One line told of my grandmother having a bowl of water for her to dip her fingers in if they got dry while rolling the meatballs into shape. Every last detail. The wife nailed the recipe nuts on when she tried them, but damn the instructions look like something nasa wrote. I couldn't find a way to condense it without screwing up the mojo.

Limits on what you could try: none, really. Whatever you could dream up.

Your budget: basically any amount of money you needed, from the biggest boom economy in human history.

Your technical and human resources: anything in existence, and the best of it to boot. Oh - and if you needed something that didn't exist, then limitless $$$$ and talent would be poured on until it was invented.

Your focus: blowing shit up - actually, creating the biggest artificial explosions in the history of the universe, as far as we knew.

One line told of my grandmother having a bowl of water for her to dip her fingers in if they got dry while rolling the meatballs into shape. Every last detail.

There was a dead possum next to my mailbox one day when I came home. I got a snow shovel and carried it out back and dumped it in the unkempt woods in the neighbor's back yard. They never go out there.

The next day I saw a turkey buzzard and a large hawk having a Mexican standoff over the corpse in my backyard. One of those bastards had dragged it out of the woods so they could work it over properly. I tossed it back into the woods.

This process was repeated over the next three days. Both birds would NOT leave the damned thing alone. Must've been pretty tasty.

Do you have a shovel? If the possum is close enough to the door, you should be able to use a shovel to pick it up and toss it outside.

If the dog gets excited (plan on this), keep the shovel a few inches above the level of the dog's nose while moving, yell at the dog as needed, toss everything outside, and lock the dog outside if it gets the possum again.

500 something strange happened to me this week.

One night there was a thunderstorm. Since I don't have ac, I had the window open with a fan in it, blowing in cool.

I sleep with the door closed, but it's an old house, and the door won't latch. The changes in the wind velocity would suck the door open, then slam it shut. This happened every few minutes, but still, I fell asleep.

Then I woke to go to the water closet. I turned on the light, and water was on the floor, and seemed to be running out of the bottom of the cabinet above the toilet. I couldn't figure out what the hell. I was half asleep.
I figured out it was running out of the line coming out of the floor next to the commode. it had broken off. I turned off the faucet on the floor.

What a weird night.

501 On July 1st, 1863, the Battle of Gettysburg began.


Today is also the exact 5-year anniversary of something very odd and unexpected:

On July 1, 2012, someone with the user name "Sam Bacile" uploaded to YouTube the first publicly-seen version of "The Innocence of Muslims" -- the 14-minute short version of a (never seen) 2-hour movie about the life of Mohammed.

It was this video which was the backstory to the whole Benghazi scandal, when Hillary falsely blamed the video as the inspiration for the embassy Al Qaeda attack two months later. Y'all know the story.

Anyway, today is the five-year anniversary of the first appearance of the obscure video, which no one had heard of until Hillary pointed the finger of blame at it -- and thereby causing actual outrage, riots and deaths among Muslim maniacs worldwide. In fact, there is STILL outrage about it, and the reverberations still echo.

502 Live P.D. showed a pair of cops remove a 4 ft. black snake from an older couple's living room. The second one that day, as in; same house.

S.C. I think. Anyway, they where on camera, but seemed very happy to help. No guns, no knives, no drugs & no paperwork? Awesome!

Why did they only remove the black snakes? Racism!

Do you think he ever intended to make a full two-hour movie, or was he just trolling the muslims?

507 it had broken off. I turned off the faucet on the floor.


I left out that the water was under enough pressure to be hitting the bottom of the wall-hung cupboard above the toilet, with enough force to be streaming then down from the cupboard.

after I got the water turned off, I considered whether some entity was messing with me. for a couple minutes.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon


Oh he DID make the full movie! It was shown exactly once, in a private (or semi-private) screening.

The 14-minute version was only ever intended as a trailer to advertise the full film. But events overwhelmed the filmmaker, so he never got the chance to show it to public audiences, and then the Feds almost certainly confiscated all copies of the full version when they unconstitutionally threw him in jail for violating Al Qaeda's sensibilities. So it's now in some federal vault next to the Ark of Covenant, as we saw in the final scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Never to be seen again, most likely.

Actually, the full version is mostly NOT about Mohammed, but instead is a reenactment of various atrocities committed against Coptic Christians in modern-day Egypt. That was actually the whole point of the film. The Mohammed stuff was just a sub-plot to explain to the viewer that the ideology of Islam commands followers to persecute infidels, such as Coptics.

That sounds like a really spooky nightmare.

Are you sure you're not still in the nightmare?

Only two that I know of are "smoke eaters" and "possum removers".

Thanks Blanco.

I demanded in my mom of 2 young sons' voice to take that outside! while pointing at the door. I have no idea why, but he picked it up and took it outside.

Reminds me of an aquatic version of "August Heat," the all-time classic spooky short story. Something about your comment reminds me of the writing style and emotions in "August Heat." But yours only lack the spine-tingling final sentences. let's hope the nightmare never gets that far!

Posted by: zombie at July 02, 2017 02:35 AM (DQ4Fv)

522 I haven't read August Heat. I will do it tomorrow, during the day.

I've kinda creeped myself out. But I didn't make that up. It happened

just that way.

523 522 I haven't read August Heat. I will do it tomorrow, during the day.

Posted by: booknlass


Even THAT comment was written like August Heat!

The whole story is about someone having a weird nightmarish vision, wondering whether he will survive til the next day. I'd be willing to bet that somewhere in the story, the lead character says, " I will do it tomorrow, during the day," and the reader thinks, "No! You won't make it til tomorrow! Run away! Run away now while you still have a chance!"

Things are getting spooky around here.

Posted by: zombie at July 02, 2017 02:46 AM (DQ4Fv)

524 pretty eerie. no kidding. I've never read it.

Zombie, don't worry. it's okay.

Plywood under baskets: right. Out the door: Yes!

I know sometime back I posted my possum encounter - a very angry mama possum in a trash can. But I can't find a link and i'mtoo tired to evenputspaces betweenwrods.

533 1st dead guy at Gettysburg was kilt a few days before the big show began. A rebel scout troop shot up some union boys and sent them away.They left one dead, so the rebels stopped and buried him along the road where he lay...and the fella is still there to this day.

534 Like an idiot, I got drunk, cried and slept most of yesterday away after a walk down to the river. Dad had a bronchoscopy on Friday. I wouldn't have known except the Dr. told him he had to have someone drive him home and spend the night with him. I spoke with the Dr. after the procedure. Seems he has a large mass in the upper lobe of his lung that has grown quit a bit since last Sept. Won't have biopsy results until Wed. or Thurs. She said she took samples of the mass and the lymph nodes. Going to be a long week.

Sorry, just had to vent. Haven't told my brother or anyone else on Dad's request.

535 Oh, Infidel. This is one of those moments that I'm sorry to be an unknown lurker. Most sane people are sleeping.

All I can offer is sorrow for what your Dad is going thru and sorrow for what you are going thru. It would be nice, I'm sure, to have your brother there.

548 According to my grandfather, you can simply tap a Possum on the nose, then wait for him to play dead.

Then all you need to do is grab the possum by the tail and slam him against a tree. Problem solved! (My dad say's he's seen his father do this.)
