Quote of The Day


Quote I

The only time my prayers are never answered is on the golf course. Billy Graham

***

Don't know how to dance? Gavin McInnes Masters the art of dance for you.

***


Dancing? How about women jumping out of cakes? The history behind this practice.

No one threw a dinner party like the Ancient Romans did, and they may have been the first to seriously combine food and entertainment; that is, the food often was also the entertainment. Wealthy banquet-throwers tried to outdo one another with exotic dishes, serving up peacocks, ostriches, dormice, and rare songbirds. Stuffing one animal inside another was a particular delight, so that a guest might carve into the belly of a cow to find an entire roasted pig inside. Inside the pig? A lamb, a rabbit, a chicken, and a mouse. (Today this practice is still alive in this rather curious dish that starts with a camel and works on down.)


Personally I would rather see a blueberry pie used instead of a cake.

The War on Poverty. The War on Drugs. Now, The War on Alcohol Impaired Driving Fatalities.

A new report issued last week by the National Academies of Sciences, Getting to Zero Alcohol-Impaired Driving Fatalities: A Comprehensive Approach to a Persistent Problem, urges a host of draconian measures in an effort to eliminate every alcohol-related driving death in the United States.

The NAS report suggests that policy approaches expand dramatically from their present focus, preventing drunk driving, "to also encompass reducing drinking to the point of impairment"—the latter, in other words, targeting all drunkenness.

Critical thinking. Gone. Rational debate. Gone. Behaving like a temper tantrum throwing two year old. In.

Students hold 'bleed-in' to demand free menstrual products.

University of Florida students walked around campus Tuesday with fake menstrual blood on their pants to protest the lack of free feminine hygiene products on campus.

On January 15, a student government committee rejected a proposal to provide free menstrual products to female students through the mandatory Activity and Service Fee, expressing concerns about applying mandatory fees paid by all students towards “funding that would only benefit the female half of the UF student body.”

We've all heard of the Crazy Cat Lady. Is it her fault?

You don’t like cats because you’re allergic to cats,” said my nephew, a physician who is really named Dr. Phil. “Your allergy may alter your perception of cats.”

This is known. I’d rather sit in the lap of Saul Alinsky for bedtime stories than approach a cat, and Saul is dead.

But the crazy cat ladies? They’re crawling with cats. They come in contact with cat feces. This, too, is known.

According to Scientific American, The Atlantic and other neutral sources, the parasite causes toxoplasmosis, which has been linked to rage, schizophrenia and impulsivity.

Is there anything more impulsive than cat ladies on a Twitter rampage?

According to The Atlantic, when handled with proper care, cats can be safe.

Moar cat news. Grumpy Cat is now one rich pussy.

The complaint is very well drafted. Grumpy Cat has excellent lawyers. But even they were unable to resist writing “three (3),” a thing that lawyers persist in doing for some inexplicable reason. Also, the phrase is “tongue-in-cheek,” not “tongue-and-cheek.”1 But these are very minor issues in what is overall a very good example of the genre. For example, they didn’t write, “Grumpy Cat Limited (hereinafter, ‘Grumpy Cat’,” for example, and that alone puts this in like the 95th percentile, in my opinion.

Anyway, the jury reportedly awarded Cat $710,000 for infringement, and a nominal award of $1 for breach of contract.

I am gross and perverted
I'm obsessed 'n deranged
I have existed for years
But very little has changed
I'm the tool of the Government
And industry too
For I am destined to rule
And regulate you

I may be vile and pernicious
But you can't look away
I make you think I'm delicious
With the stuff that I say
I'm the best you can get
Have you guessed me yet?
I'm the slime oozin' out
From your TV set

A few nights ago, I had a dream about a woman I haven't seen in a long, LONG time. I'm talking since about 1987.

Made me realize I missed her more than I thought.

I've also noticed these dreams have a usual format: I stumble across them by accident, they hold out a little hope that I can see them again later, and then when I try to find them, I can't.

I have very similar dreams. Quite frequently in fact. I never see the person again, or I never get to the place that holds promise, or the good thing that's supposed to happen never does. Then I get to wake up and live it.

What's actually worse for me, strange as it sounds, are dreams where everything is great. I've found love, or my life is back on track. Then I wake up and it's gone. That puts me in a pretty dark place.

176 "Janet Reno gets a bad rap, but wasn't Waco a situation where there were no good guys? Wasn't Koresh molesting kids at his religious compound?"

A) Remember, the molestation charges were from the people trying to make excuses for the fiasco, so take that into account, and more importantly....

B) so the answer to a potential charge of child molestation is to go in and murder all the children involved, to guarantee that they can never be molested again?

Because that's what the Fed's did.

Just to be clear, the McClennan County Sheriff, right from the start, told everyone who would listen that if any of the Fed's had EVER told him that they had a warrant out for Koresh, he could have arrested him easily whenever they wanted, since Koresh drove into town by himself a couple times a week to pick up supplies, and the Sheriff knew him and was well aware of the rather conspicuous '68 Camaro he always drove.

The Fed's WANTED a raid that would generate TV clips, and they took pains to make sure that local LEO knew nothing at all about what was going down until after they had already started the catastrophe.

Janet Reno gets a bad rap, but wasn't Waco a situation where there were no good guys? Wasn't Koresh molesting kids at his religious compound?

Posted by: qdpsteve at January 27, 2018 10:22 PM (eMKNe)

++++

The government had an excellent solution. First, they cut electricity to the place. Then they said that because the compound's water pumps ran on electricity and were no longer functional, the facility lacked running water. Then they went in. By pumping in gas and setting it on fire and killing all those kids.

They did it for the children.

They could have took Koresh outside the facility. Though they lacked a search warrant, they did have an arrest warrant for Koresh. But, if they would have took him outside, they would have lost the opportunity for a free look around inside. So, they burned the place to the ground.

Janet Reno was a real piece of work.

I've had. (luckily it doesn't recur very often) Maybe one of the worst parts is that when I'm in it, it feels normal and unexceptional, when it should be horrific.

I'm sitting somewhere, and something bothers me about my teeth, so I start taking them out, one by one, and set them all out in front of me. Then i try to put them back in, but they never fit right, and I get more and more frustrated as i try to get them all to fit right and they just won't.

The weirdest part of all is that I've learned that a lot of other people have had that dream, too.

There you go, Zak, getting all condescending again. Once in a Prussian Blue Moon, I might appreciate some poetry, especially a good limerick, but I sure as fuck don't need it, and it's a goddam insult for you to say otherwise.

I seem to remember having Gerard Manley Hopkins inflicted upon me in high school, and thinking he sucked donkey dick.

265 Waco is also one of the first news stories I remember, where ordinary people that I knew exercised a lot of pushback against the "official story."

Waco happened when I was in college. The Feds' response was discussed in my religious-studies class. Scholars of Biblical Christianity begged the Clinton Administration and the agencies involved that this was their turf and that they could reason with Vernon / Koresh.

Maybe they could; maybe they couldn't. But the Branch Davidians were white and they were in semirural Texas and Think Of The Children, so Clinton and Reno figured fuck 'em.

266 I'm rather free of recurring bad theme dreams. I get the 'didn't study for exam' and 'overslept, late for muster' ones, but not like, often.

What I do get is bloody feet, from walking barefoot in broken glass in about 70% of dreams, regardless what else is going on. I'm stepping in broken glass, then I have to stand on one foot and pick the glass out and try to find a place to step so I can do the other foot, but I can't, and I can't do it sitting down, because everything is covered in broken glass. And I always have at least one foot planted in it while I work on the other. In almost every dream.

274 I did have a weird dream a month or two ago, not a recurring one. It was extraordinarily detailed (I made notes when I woke up):

-I am walking down a street (in the street) and somehow I know it is a college town.
-I am looking for my car. I find it, but it is stripped down to the sheet metal (no paint, just a steel frame, no wheels nothing.) With cardboard (I have a convertable) over the passenger compartment. I think I have been robbed "They even stole the paint!?!"
-I open the car door (cardboard still on), and the seats and everything on the inside are gone as well. I then think "Huh, must be an engineering school mock up."
- I then turn back up the street the way I came and notice my car sitting there.
-I am distracted by a guy driving a small pickup up the street into a ditch. He backs out of the ditch only to get run over by a UPS 18 wheeler. Complete with Wilhelm scream from the driver of the pickup and a very loud crunch. I am horrified.
-I pull out my cell phone to call 911. However, it is not my cell phone.
-I then walk up some stairs to a university building to get help.
-At the top of the stairs are some Stepford women (think watchtower) trying to get people to date their daughters.
-I then turn around to flee, but the stairs are out (wooden stairs, no workmen the stairs are just gone and there are tarps over lumber and such.)
-I walk the other way, away from the street in order to circle around back to my car.
-I cross the street and am at the top of a very large hill with stairs leading down to my car.
-I start down the stairs, then I notice they are in very poor repair. I stop. There is a woman behind me and she bump into me and grabs onto me. I hear a scream.
-I turn around (with the lady still attached) and notice the stairs have collapsed behind me. I look down and around 30 feet below I see a pile of coats, passports, etc and a dude pulling himself by his arms along the concrete floor.
-The woman is screaming in my ear now.

I wake up. I got up and was not scared per se, but more wondering "What the hell did I eat?"

278 poetry?

The Young British Soldier When the 'arf-made recruity goes out to the East
'E acts like a babe an' 'e drinks like a beast,
An' 'e wonders because 'e is frequent deceased
Ere 'e's fit for to serve as a soldier.
Serve, serve, serve as a soldier,
Serve, serve, serve as a soldier,
Serve, serve, serve as a soldier,
So-oldier _of_ the Queen!

Now all you recruities what's drafted to-day,
You shut up your rag-box an' 'ark to my lay,
An' I'll sing you a soldier as far as I may:
A soldier what's fit for a soldier.
Fit, fit, fit for a soldier . . .

First mind you steer clear o' the grog-sellers' huts,
For they sell you Fixed Bay'nets that rots out your guts --
Ay, drink that 'ud eat the live steel from your butts --
An' it's bad for the young British soldier.
Bad, bad, bad for the soldier . . .

When the cholera comes -- as it will past a doubt --
Keep out of the wet and don't go on the shout,
For the sickness gets in as the liquor dies out,
A' it crumples the young British soldier.
Crum-, crum-, crumples the soldier . . .

But the worst o' your foes is the sun over'ead:
You must wear your 'elmet for all that is said:
If 'e finds you uncovered 'e'll knock you down dead,
An' you'll die like a fool of a soldier.
Fool, fool, fool of a soldier . . .

If you're cast for fatigue by a sergeant unkind,
Don't grouse like a woman nor crack on nor blind;
Be handy and civil, and then you will find
That it's beer for the young British soldier.
Beer, beer, beer for the soldier . . .

Now, if you must marry, take care she is old --
A troop-sergeant's widow's the nicest I'm told,
For beauty won't help if your rations is cold,
Nor love ain't enough for a soldier.
'Nough, 'nough, 'nough for a soldier . . .

If the wife should go wrong with a comrade, be loath
To shoot when you catch 'em -- you'll swing, on my oath! --
Make 'im take 'er and keep 'er: that's Hell for them both,
An' you're shut o' the curse of a soldier.
Curse, curse, curse of a soldier . . .

When first under fire an' you're wishful to duck,
Don't look nor take 'eed at the man that is struck,
Be thankful you're livin', and trust to your luck
And march to your front like a soldier.
Front, front, front like a soldier . . .

When 'arf of your bullets fly wide in the ditch,
Don't call your Martini a cross-eyed old bitch;
She's human as you are -- you treat her as sich,
An' she'll fight for the young British soldier.
Fight, fight, fight for the soldier . . .

When shakin' their bustles like ladies so fine,
The guns o' the enemy wheel into line,
Shoot low at the limbers an' don't mind the shine,
For noise never startles the soldier.
Start-, start-, startles the soldier . . .

If your officer's dead and the sergeants look white,
Remember it's ruin to run from a fight:
So take open order, lie down, and sit tight,
And wait for supports like a soldier.
Wait, wait, wait like a soldier . . .

When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier.
Go, go, go like a soldier,
Go, go, go like a soldier,
Go, go, go like a soldier,
So-oldier _of_ the Queen!

1) I'm supposed to start the next record, but the turntable is broken.

2) Realizing this, I turn on the microphone to cover with some snappy patter while I find a commerical on tape cartridge to play, hoping it will give me time to cue up a record on the other turntable.

3) The microphone is broken.

4) The machines that play the commercials are also broken. This is when the "hotline" starts lighting up. The boss is calling wondering what the hell is going on.

5) I reach for a record from the shelf, but there aren't any.

6) Desperately, I take the record off the broken turntable, flip it over, and start it on the other turntable...which also doesn't work. And the phone keeps ringing...

353 Well, well, now they can't locate McCabe's texts and emails. It's suddenly become obvious what the plan is. Delay...and goad the Congressional Committee into filing Contempt charges, which can carry up to a 1 year in prison. Only, that would never happen because in order to solidify the charge, it would be submitted to a US attorney to file in Federal Court. And, judging by the behavior of those individuals in that seat, chances are they have it covered and would not file the charges recommended by Congress.

I'm beginning to think Sessions (who came out early for Trump against all conventional wisdom) was a plant to get someone inside the DOJ to put up a stonewall in the event that someone stumbled across all the shenanigans that had been going on...which they did.

Posted by: --- .-. /-. --- - at January 27, 2018 11:02 PM (MTjB1)

Lat me first say that this year's QB class is much weaker than last year:

Allen fits every criteria of the prototype NFL, QB. Knocks are not playing in a Power 5 league and possibly not as mobile laterally. Has good footwork on drop-backs at 3 step and 5 steps. Has arm strength, good vision down field, large frame, 6'-5", moves up into the pocket well and importantly very large hand-size. Critical for cold weather teams. Played in a more conservative read offense. I personally think Allen should go around the end of round 1.

Mayfield: And I do like Mayfield. Saw the kid up close through his career. He does have excellent arm-strength and an uncanny ability to extend plays. He is a winner. Good quickness. Maturity is not a strength (understatement). He is barely 6'. Comparison to Russell Wilson is not accurate as Wilson has largest hands in the NFL at 10.5". Wilson also was a pro athlete (baseball) that played his last college year in a west-coast system (familiarization with a core NFL system) at Wisconsin. Oklahoma under Riley's offense has a very limited reading of defense (that can obviously be overcome but is an issue). Footwork in drop-backs are poor (big issue to overcome).
Mayfield has 9.5" hand-size and won't adjust as well in cold weather (Compare with Jared Goff at 9" hands and it was an issue but home is LA and not as much an issue). Mayfield, to me is late 2nd round to a 3rd round pick. I think he would be a great fit in Sean Peyton's system at N.O. while learning under Drew Brees.

The midget grease bastes the hobo internally, and the camel gets real crispy.

423 Princess Bride is a fairy tale. Actually it's kind of a meta-fairy tale. Which means the "worldbuilding" is kind of irrelevant. Everything runs on the "rule of cool."

THAT BEING SAID, yes, I was struck the last time I watched it by how low-budget that movie actually was. They had the good fortune to be able to use a real castle (or castle-ish building) and some nice locations, but some of the scenes looked almost exactly like TV episodes. And of course the evil prince has Eighties Hair.

429 Reno burned a man in Waco, just to watch him die.

She liked that so much, she burned dozens more, with no small number of women and children added, either as kindling or entertainment.

Either way, may that evil bitch enjoy her flames to be magnatudes as HOT as those she inflicted upon the Koresh compound.

For EVER.

And there's a special place for Lon Horiuchi, right there beside her.

433 I was six when The Chipmonk Song came out. My grandparents got a copy for me and my younger brother and sister. We loved it and played it all the time. My sister and I tried to harmonize singing along (not successfully) and my brother just danced like two year olds do. Must have driven my parents crazy.

Never thought my grandparents had a sense of humor but looking back I realize they did. They didn't have a record player.

Tr___estus, I think that's due - in part - to today's high-resolution TVs. I was in Fry's (local electronics store) a couple of years ago, and they were playing "Patton" on one of the display TVs.

491 Good evening to all you rascally rascals.

I just woke up. I fell asleep from 6 pm until now. In middle of night I woke up because I had stopped breathing. Never happened before. Kinda scary. But I've been eating foods I'm not supposed to...I mIss them! And obviously too many. Because exhaustion is partial side effect.

Anyway, I read this:

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will not be in attendance at President Trump’s first State of the Union address on Tuesday. Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot... resign!"


Not a huge deal, IMO. I mean, DJT has insulted so many people at this point, it is kinda anti-climatic. And also, I remember when Obama scolded the Supreme Court in one of his SOTU addresses. Who needs that?!

There will be others who won't attend. And isn't there gonna a stupid dress in black thing that they got from the Hollywood time out black dress thing. Congress copying Hollywood. What a brain trust.

And lastly, are things like this allowed in the ONT...the politics.

I've got a few minutes before I go back into my coma. So if I'm gonna be tazed, ya better do it fast, please.

The thing is, is who is going to enforce it outside of the metro areas? Colorado sheriffs and some local PD's said that they would not enforce the 10 round magazine rule in their jurisdictions after that law was passed in CO. IIRC Magpull (?) moved their manufacturing to Wyoming to avoid the law. For me it's a two hour drive to Cheyenne. And for that matter, who is going to enforce that law in the large metro areas? They have people crapping in the streets for crying out loud. Are the local PD's going to have the time and personnel to go check to see if you have a duly registered lockbox?

Well, here's one from the poet/humorist Ogden Nash, from 1938. You can bet your bottom iambic pentameter that this one never sees the inside of a creative writing/poetry class today.


The Japanese

How courteous is the Japanese;
He always says, "Excuse it, please."
He climbs into his neighbor's garden,
And smiles, and says, "I beg your pardon";
He bows and grins a friendly grin,
And calls his hungry family in;
He grins, and bows a friendly bow;
"So sorry, this my garden now."

No. Laws like this can be selectively enforced.

Have a medical emergency and call an ambulance? They will see that you don't have an approved lockbox, and wham, you will be charged.

Have a fire and call the fire department? See above.

The Tick. This is the third time around with this character, not including the comic book. It isn't any fresher (important to comedy) and I don't know what Ben Edlund expects this time.

The Walking Dead.
The walking dead.

American Dad!
14 seasons...

It used to be a "curse" of some sort that any president elected in the tens year of the 20 year cycle would be assassinated or otherwise die in office. Reagan broke it. He was shot, but he lived and broke the curse (for those that believe there was any such thing to break).

Trump was elected in 2016. If re-elected in 2020, then that would count, I think, but the curse has been broken. We had W elected in 2000, and no such attempt.

I am probably going to get Flu Plague by Wednesday latest.

40 kids between 4 and 10 years old can wreak horrific damage on twenty inflatable stormtroopers filled with helium. Good God, they had foam lightsabers and when they were done arms, legs and torsos littered the ceiling. My job was to tape a fork to a broom handle and puncture body parts so they could wack them as they decended. Never sell short Navy kids.

True. I'm not really familiar w/ it, but I think it's been modified.

When you start talking about such things it gives a starting list of things to look for.

For instance, would you look at all stars?

Which ones do we look at and how do you determine them?

Do they have planets? No, then skip; else look at other factors.

I once read a book, full of complicated math, on why if there is life on other planets, where are they? The author's point was that even if we look at all the stars, we have to see if they have planets. Then we have to see if there are any planets in the 'Goldilocks zone'* (or habitable zone), that orbital area out from a sun where water, hence life, can exist. Then we have to determine if that life is able to think, build, etc., be intelligent, not just be microbes. The end result of that book is that finding any planets meeting the Goldilocks Zone criteria will be very small. Even smaller still will be finding planets in the Goldilocks Zone with life. Even smaller still will be planets in the Goldilocks Zone with life capable of thinking and building, of having intelligence. In other words, finding life on other planets capable of communication and space travel will be infinitesimal, that is approaching zero. It's not out of the question that intelligent life can exist out there, it's just that the odds of us finding such life are very, very low.

* The Earth in smack dab in the middle of Sol's Goldilocks Zone. Venus is too close and Mars too far away from Sol, yet both are similar to Earth in many ways. A few million miles either way for Mars and Venus and we could be arguing over another TPP: The Trans-Planetary Partnership.

Appreciate thoughts.

In discussions a lot of territory is opened up.

If the odds of us finding such life are low, that means (once we get to that point) we can inhabit w/out interfering.

If we find life, what do we do w/ it, how would we recognize intelligence/communication and so on.

My guess is if we find intelligent life on other planets, the odds are good that that life will have a hive-mind mentality, possibly capable of building great things. I say that because when you look at certain species on this planet and their numbers, like bees, ants and the like, the hive-mind, or collective, is the predominant form of 'intelligence' on this planet. Homo Sapiens is an outlier, as are a small number of other species which are capable of altering their world in a deliberate manner to change their environment, like beavers. Even the various species of apes don't alter their environment, building lean-tos and the like, although they can use tools in their daily lives.

I've got the night off and nothing else to do.

I'm guessing you're talking about the Drake Equation which is what I was talking about when I mentioned other factors.

The other factors involved in the equation (and more if you can think of any). I think the equations been modified somewhat from the original.

We have nine planets (or eight if you hate Pluto) around our sun. Only one planet is in Sol's Goldilocks Zone, 12.5% or 11.1%, small odds; one in five increases the odds to 20%, assuming we can find any planets in the Goldilocks Zone. We have no idea of the average number of planets around each sun, so we don't know if nine is a high or low number. But even if we assume five planets per sun, the odds of one of those five being habitable, with intelligent life, will be quite small. It's math (which is hated by all on the ONT).

BTW, they're not "Grand Slam"s, they're "majors". I don't know who the hell started calling the individual majors "Grand Slam"s but it was obviously someone who doesn't speak English.

It's not that, either. The Grand Slam is winning 4 majors in a row (it's really not all in the same year as people claim but just holding all 4 at the same time). Each individual is not a Grand Slam and not a Slam. I think the Euros started calling the majors "Grand Slams" because they had no idea what it really meant and didn't understand how English works.

I'm not jumping on you about this. Everyone seems to do it these days. It's just one of my pet peeves. The Grand Slam is something very, very special.
