Short and Sweet ONT

Short one tonight, kiddies. I've been out of town all week in Ft. Worth. I think I'm in love with that town. While there are a few modern glass skyscrapers, and one Brutalist monstrosity that should be imploded, the entire downtown is all Art Deco. How cool is that?

Anyhow, I got back this afternoon, and spent the time since then replacing the hot water heater in the RV. (Easy job. Piece of cake. I could do it in 10 minutes if everything was out in the open. Since it's not, and since it was a cast iron bitch to get all of the screws that were holding the old one in out, I just finished and realized, hey, after 9:00, ONT. So, sorry) Anyhow, I noticed that begun, the fast food wars have.

2016 Election Results


Here's a pretty neat map that breaks down the results of the race by precinct. It's zoomable to the individual street level.


Interactive Map

Not Sure What Is Going on Here


But I'm definitely staying away. I make it a personal policy not to swim when there is a tentacle penis about.

Far Side

Here's all the content an ONT needs.


So what's your favorite Far Side cartoon? There's a whole whack of them in the thread attached to that post there. My favorite? Well, let's just say that when the subject of being a COB comes up, I tell people I work at the Midvale School for the Gifted.


What You Gonna Do When They Come For You?


The social media mob is a danger to society


I'm 100% with Ace on this one. This is pure game theory, the prisoner's dilemma to be precise. The Left must be made to pay the price they envision for us until they cry uncle. Then we can go back to being one big unhappy country together. If not.....I'm fairly confident we can outlast those Mfers. I don't want that. I've been screaming against it for years, but they didn't listen, so if that's what the game is going to be, than I am playing to win, and fuck all of the “Muh Principles!” surrender monkeys.

Fourscore and Seven Tears Ago..


Everyone from the Left to the Swamp to Conservative, Inc. cries copious tears over Trump daily. As an historian, it all sounds just too familiar. Hating Lincoln


The Simple Joys of Life

Tonight's ONT is brought to you by good luck:

It had a CEO of a company addressing all of his subordinates at a board meeting.

His line was "And so I've reached the conclusion that the Wonker Weiner Company is staffed by incompetents."

And behind him was a company mural that had a hot dog weiner that was going north and south, and a bun that was going east and west.

I was a very young man when I read that, and I laughed for hours at that cartoon.

59 I have three favorite Far Sides, all involving dogs of course.

One I saw a the link, with dog hiding beside the dryer labeled "Cat Fud".

Another is seen from the back of a car, with a cat beside the driver. In front is a dog leaping for joy. "Look who's happy seeing you back from being declawed by the vet."

And the other is a dog, carrying flowers, at the door of a female (poodle, by ancient cartoon custom). "You look beautiful Fifi, and whatever you rolled in sure does stink."

That's not in any order, love them all.

If you hear the Brits sing it at a royal function, actually it does rhyme, and the Brits do it anyways. I think just to be obnoxious in church and to show everyone they can do it and you can't stop them.

They also sing vivat like VYE-vat, which is idiotic, but they take pleasure in pronouncing their latin idiotically. (should be veevat, or if you really wanna be classical, wee-wat)

Well, the Horde responded in an incredible fashion. I am simply amazed at the Community here. The generosity was overwhelming, and I would like to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart.

It was pretty dusty in here all of yesterday, and it is very dusty as I type this response.

I am proud to call myself a Moron, and to include myself as a member of the best community on the Web. If y'all don't mind, I will be dropping this note in each thread today.

Thank you all once again.

257 If I'm trying to think of states where the barbecue would suck, the first ones that come to mind are Michigan and Massachusetts.

Michigan isn't really particularly famous for any sort of food. Detroit-style pizza, maybe, and that does look mighty good, but it's not barbecue.

Massachusetts, food-wise, has, uh, Boston baked beans, and Boston cream pie. Not barbecue. Also... not even meat.

Wisconsin at least has sausages, which cook up nicely on a grill. And Minnesota, well, they're very outdoorsy there, so even if all they're grilling is fish caught from a hole in the ice, that still sort of counts as barbecue, IMO.

If you mean a type of kamado grill, I have been thinking about getting one, although recently I have been looking at Primo Grills, which are made in Georgia instead of Mexico or China, and also come in an oval shape, which is better for indirect cooking/smoking.

WD - did you go instant hot water on the RV? I have make that decision soon with mine.

No. I just replaced the 6 gal one with another 6 gal one. It's an old RV (95), and I didn't feel like footing the expense of tankless and figuring out how to re-engineer everything. Mechanically, it runs great. Ford e350 chassis, 47K miles, runs like a top. All of the interior systems work well too, gas, electric, water, etc.
Unfortunately, as might be expected from the age, the RV body has an advanced case of rot from water. It's all just plywood and 2X4s, I've replaced some of it, but I haven't decided how much of that I want to do.

City officials in Portland, Ore., say they'll be cleaning up the "disgusting" Occupy ICE camp after police cleared the area of protesters Wednesday.

The mayor's office said it would pick up a portion of the tab for the clean-up, FOX 12 reported. Meanwhile, the Portland Police Bureau has cordoned off the site, calling it a biohazard.

Debris being cleared Wednesday included wooden pallets, makeshift toilets, books, toys, plastic containers, liquor bottles, tents and furniture, photos published by the Oregonian showed.

Mayor Ted Wheeler publicly ordered the Occupy ICE protesters to leave the camp Monday, but they ignored the mayor's request.

That prompted Portland police to step in and clear the protesters. No tickets or arrests were made in the process.

This place is right next to work - it smells amazing. Tomorrow is brisket burnt ends day, so thanks for the heads-up, whoever raised the subject of BBQ! I will have brisket burnt ends in your honor.

I also snagged a sweet gentlemen's dresser that is in much better condition than the Hoosier. Today I spent hours scrubbing the dresser, then coating it in lemon oil. It is now simply awesome and sitting in my sewing room.
The Hoosier is still in pappymayhem workshop. Four days of scrubbing and still needs more. This one could take a long time.

That's the cool part though, we have all kinds of sauces and preparations because there's nobody to tell us it's not "real barbecue". If you're in a region with a strong BBQ tradition and you don't like that style, tough titty.

I don't like sweet either, but the burnt brisket ends are smoky enough that it's not overpowering. They're a little like galbi or bulgogi, there's sweet, but a lot of smoky and spicy to temper it.

Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo at July 26, 2018 11:20 PM (wYseH)




Avoid Ryobi. I've got a corded Ryobi 1/4 sheet, corded orbital sander over on the junk pile. It's internals self digested in mid-use, with only a couple of months of medium-duty use.

Too many plastic & nylon parts inside of it. And while I'm sure AOP could make some use of the motor and switch, the unit itself is a shell full of shredded polymer bits n' pieces.

Milwaukee and Makita are good pro-grade tools. Rigid and the higher end DeWalt are good upper-mid-grade stuff.

Most of the Black & Decker, sadly, is now barely above Ryobi on the food chain.

Plus, if it's just an occasional-use tool....buy the corded version. You really won't wanna babysit batteries that see use only every few months.

Yeah, the Tech boom was what made Beejer so popular, even though he had absolutely nothing to do with it. The economy roared while he was President, that was all that mattered.

Having a fully Republican Congress in '95 and '96, and having to "triangulate"/compromise with them was very helpful to his reelection as well.

539 I'm kind of piecing together what may/willl happen with the new upper decker being vomited forth by Mueller from that snake Cohen that Trump knew of and approved the meeting with the Russian lawyer that Don Jr attended.

There is nothing illegal about any of it except Don Jr was interviewed by Mueller's team under oath and said his father had no advanced knowledge of the meeting, Cohen testimony will contradict that so Mueller is going to charge Don Jr with lying to investigators and obstructing justice more commonly known as process crimes.

What is going on is as antithetical to justice as can be imagined.

A sad, sorry, fearful pussified version of America. Where everyone has forsaken their liberty, their self-determination, and even their libido in the name of safety.

They can't defend themselves, they can't wipe themselves, they can't even fuck without the help of machines.

I think this is the most likely ( negative) outcome for our future, and while I liked the movie, I think it's a shame they didn't make it better, and more serious, and less comedic. It's a visionary concept that could've been treated better.

I had an 89 Turbo II RX7.

Loved that car.

Had to get rid of it because something would be stolen from it or inside of it on a near weekly basis.

I lived in the Bronx and people would steal the side mirrors, the little glass window ports just under neath the pop up headlights, any number of plastic pieces from my dash, etc.

I would go to Hunts Point where all of the chop shops were and get replacement parts.

I swear to God some of the parts I bought were my original parts.

What happened to those? Where are the 944's, the Supra Turbo's, RX7's?

Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at July 27, 2018 12:00 AM (CDGwz)




The Mitsubishi and it's Dodge Avenger clone were two of the most impossible to maintain performance cars of their era.

1. Dense-pack engineering. Which means that there was technology stuffed into nearly every cubic inch of the engine bay, under the dash and many other odd spaces. You don't get a wrench in there to remove a part, without first removing sixteen other parts to GET TO the part you want to get to.

Actually, it was worse than I describe.

2. Infamous Mitsubishi "Quality", built in! (pssst... I think they learned Q.C. from Fiat?)


The 944 drivetrains held up well enough, but owners would ditch the car as the interiors decayed into dust. And they all decayed into dust. German "formulas" for making UV resistant interior polymers never too into account Southern USA heat and U.V. levels.

And all of the surviving RX-7s get snapped up by the serious Club Racers, and get thrashed to death.

From those three cars, I think the 944 was the best all around platform as a daily driver, and clearly had enough of the Porsche aura to it to hold respect, at least for the decade of it's production.

Heh. The red line on the tach was there for a reason. The rotary engine would easily exceed the redline RPM. Once.
Beyond the redline, the apex seals got into some sort of chatter vibration that destroyed them.

Mine was a '77. The M-B 123 platform is still one of the best, ever.

But, I'd resto-mod one back to "like new", without the vacuum acutated climate, cruise and door lock system. I'm sure by now, the aftermarket has proper electric replacements for all those trouble prone bits.

I don't know about them being light weight. I have handled a few, and found them heavy for their size. Piston engines have a fair bit of open space inside them. Rotaries are damned near solid metal. What is good about them, mass-wise, is that their center of gravity is low, right about even with the center line of the eccentric shaft. Which is good if you want a good-handling car.

Went out to hall to speak with nurse, She went to get juice and I found dad out of bed barefoot in the bathroom shaking in the dark. The bed alarm wasn't on. Thank god he didn't fall.. I had to leave before I lost it. Fkn pissed.

669 Calm, Left a message. I have calmed down. nurse called me back. she called back, Said the issue has been addressed. I asked with whom did she address this and we suddenly had a bad connection. I will be there at 630 am before shift change to find out. Mean time looking for somewhere else. This may take a few more weeks. Seems he's not 'not actively dying' like they thought a few days ago. I'm sure my bro is not helping.

Prayers from the horde would be appreciated.

In order for a car with automatic transmission to be push-started, it has to have a "rear" pump that develops hydraulic pressure when the driveshaft is turning. The last time such pumps were commonplace was in the '60's.

Not sure what got your dad there. Mine had a fall and the Docs were all worried about seizures. The meds the gave him to protect from that possibility had him weak and sleeping 20 hours a day. Once those meds were removed we saw a great improvement. In both holding a conversation and his strength. And by stregth he can get out of bed or his chair to the bathroom with no assistance.

If he's on anti seizure meds I can look up the specific ones if that helps.

699 The question was "would you rather spend the rest of your life in 1968" so I assume every year would be 1968 and you wouldn't have to worry about the 70s or 80s or whatever.

735 Communist States of America in 'undeclared state of siege' as hooded gunmen rule the streets
https://bit.ly/2K5g92o

July 26, 2035 04:51 PM
Updated 8 hours 1 minute ago

CINCINNATI, OHIO
They ride in the back of Toyota double-cabin pickup trucks, assault rifles slung over their shoulders. No one knows their identities. They always wear black ski masks or hoods.

The gunmen - between 10,000 and 15,000 of them, according to some estimates - are part of a recently formed paramilitary force protecting the continued rule of President Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez against a three-month-old civilian uprising. Their main tactic is terror. They conduct roundups, fire at protesters, carry out dark-of-night raids and menace the population.

The Pro-Human Rights Association of Communist States of America said Thursday that paramilitary forces have conducted 540,900 "kidnappings" and disappearances of citizens since the uprising began April 18. The group said it has tallied 9,500 killings since July 11.

744 Tell me if I'm wrong but is it incorrect to say fb,twitter,... etc primarily offer the ability/possibility to stroke egos?

I mean msg apps have been forever. Yay now with pic sharing , whoo!

S t r o k e E g o s

It not so much evil maybe - but that kinda is the definition of taking advantage of and promoting common human frailties.

This is a race to the bottom u see. Lefties are st the helm.

Side note: first saw this before cared about politics. Had MTV on while studying. Spring break fest ? Dancing half nakedness for a week straight. Don't get me wrong I have nothing against half naked women but I was like "who t f watches this" ( I usually had on trauma ER or some VHS movie for the 101 time ).

--- then, month or 2 later, non stop "get out the vote" concerts whatever. There message was:

" Vote just to Vote"

I was like 'what's wrong with this picture' ? So yeah that's when I first saw those guys were playing a whole other game.

1) Decided that moment I was of the opinion uninformed people should abstain from voting out of a sense of civic duty.

Didn't vote myself till round #2 (after I saw men in suits staring out their office window having to choose between ending up extra thin or extra crispy).

2) Decided that moment either no one was running this ship or they had no clue what they are doing

Skipping ahead... went back to real life / work or tried at least. Then,

3) "We" voted in a smooth talking scheister promising no less than robbing peter to pay Paul so Paul would vote for him and his ilk in perpetuity and .... to fundamentally transform the US (basically that's sedition).

And so on.... and it was clear ... utterly blatantly crystal clear:

Me
You
Us

We were being "removed", systematically, culturally, genetically.
And they knew exactly what they were doing the whole time - and whoever was supposed to be defending our flanks was either dumb or in on it.

(*)=>we were over run

Survival dictates salvage what u can and believe me my survival instincts were kicking in in 2009 ... I may have only been and still am 29 but I ain't no French man.

But others thought that was crazy talk. So here where are today ... now at least ace is on my side but "we no longer have the balls". That maybe true and maybe then true those ballless never did. I have no plans to storm a beach by my lonesome but I know a few states that are adjacent and not landlocked that might be ripe for "gentrifying" as the left likes to say.

One can dream right ?

--- hmm...
What an interesting brief history i just typed... I literally had to scroll up to remember what the hell I started this post with and how i got here. Maybe there is something in the water.

760 The gunmen - between 10,000 and 15,000 of them, according to some estimates - are part of a recently formed paramilitary force protecting the continued rule of President Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez against a three-month-old civilian uprising.

She's at best a potential enabler, not a dictator. She's an imbecile, and only European royalty could get away with being imbecilic despots. El Presidente Cortez would get an icepick to the back of her neck before her first week was out. She doesn't exactly inspire respect.

771 I'm kind of piecing together what probably will happen with the new upper
decker being vomited forth by Mueller from that snake Cohen that Trump
knew of and approved the meeting with the Russian lawyer that Don Jr
attended.


There is nothing illegal about any part of the meeting and even if Trump lied he wasn't interviewed about it in any official or legal forum or under oath, BUT....

Don Jr
was interviewed by Mueller's team probably under oath and said his father had no
advanced knowledge of the meeting, Cohen's testimony will contradict that
so Mueller is going to charge Don Jr with lying to investigators and
obstructing justice more commonly known as process crimes with no other underlying crime.

Doesn't matter if there is no one else to corroborate Cohen's testimony, Don Jr will be charged and indicted, the process is the crime and will put the screws to Trump ala Flynn when Mueller threatened his son.


What is going on is as antithetical to justice as can be imagined.

No, he was one of those Asiana Airline pilots that crashed at SFO a few years back. As you may remember, a local SF news anchor reported the four Chinese pilots on a live broadcast, and this guy was one of the names. Captain Sum Ting Wong, Wi Tu Lo, and Bang Ding Ow were reported to be the three other pilots. No, really. Confirmed by the NTSB. Unlike CNN, they did later issue a correction.

The software companies in the PacNW that offer on campus dining do it because of the productivity increases. Less time traveling to lunch means more of the day to get more work done. Also, it extends to breakfast, so employees can start earlier because decent food is ready for them at work. It isn't about the Subway around the block.

But the Socialists are our superiors, so shut up.

Well, we beheld a baby skunk! Tiny thing that would fit in the palm of my hand. She was on it in a flash. I didn't know what it was until she spat it out the first time. Finally got her in the house, sans skunk.

Not full blown skunk smell. Just sorta chemically. Washed her face and she huffed and chuffed for a good half hour. And pestered me to let her go back outside into her pen. We'll hold off on that for a while. I checked, but it seems to be gone. Prolly wriggled out a small gap in the wire.

840 At the same time the school district when from top two to about fourteenth place, while spending three times as much money.


Then we must spend more money. And give the teachers a raise!!

844 'The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), a government watchdog office set up to monitor U.S. spending, identified $15.5 billion in waste, fraud, and abuse between its inception in 2008 through December 2017'


That's 15 billion that should have been spent on the wall to protect our own country.

845 @843

The morning so far is good but there are dark clouds ahead.

I'm predicting around 830 give or take an hour either way some bad news is going to drop to bury the good economic news.

I'm going with Don Jr indictment.

852 Facebook's biggest problem is that no one under 25 uses it. Facebook is where your mom, your Pastor, your employer all hang out. It's not hip and it's not trendy.

yup. KTY is 16, no desire to go on FB. I think she goes on Instagram and Tumblr

KTE is 2 years out of the teens, she uses FB Messenger for group chats with college friends, but is rarely on FB

I will be very surprised if he tries this, but I put nothing past him now.

He is desperate for a scalp, flailing around out of options.

857 So what's the under-25 cohort using?

Posted by: Gem at July 27, 2018 07:18 AM (XoAz

.....

A few other platforms like Instagram & Snapchat, but to a growing extent...they aren't using social media platforms at all.

There are a lot of individualized group apps for wireless that they can communicate on without broadcasting to the world or sifting through bullsh*t.

Your average 17 or 18 year old doesn't give a f*ck about the latest ramblings about politics. They have their opinions to be sure, but for the most part they are into pop culture.

They want to teach Trump and his family a lesson that will keep any 'outsider' from ever running for political office again.

Don Jr probably already lost his wife over this stuff. Now they'll try to put him behind bars.
