Ring, Ring, Ring, Ring, ONT

Yeah, it's open enrollment, which for me is just like an accountant the first week of April. I left before 8 this morning, and just walked back in and sat down to write this at ten to nine.

I'm Hungry

Last week it was Burger Chef, but this week, here's a link to Chain Restaurants That Are Still Hanging On

Some oldies but goodies here. Did you know that there is still one HoJos in business? Man, now I want a clam boat. And Chi-Chis is still around overseas. I worked (and got robbed at shotgun point) there in college. After the robbery, the next day the restaurant made good my tips that the robbers had taken, which I thought was mighty decent of them. It wasn't their fault I got robbed, it was a gang that was robbing everything in sight that summer. A week later they killed a guy during a robbery. Cops got 'em shortly after that.

71 How much of the Dems flagrant election stealing is due to a psychology of hubris? They've essentially owned the entire Judicial System for decades now, and they're under the impression that Lawfare is only a thing on their own side. Add in two years of El Snoozerino to the mix, and they must think they can just say to hell with it and go buck wild, thinking everything will shake out fine for them between crooked judges and crooked journalists.

Thieves can't relax when they know they're about to face justice. And when democracy becomes tyranny, many of you will still get to vote.

I'm not saying relax. I am saying, be positive. The left isn't going into psycho criminal mode because victory is assured.

Typically in S. LA they appoint an elderly widower of a long-time Parish employee so the Parish Council's can hand out that position as patronage every 5 or 6 years. It's basically a symbolic post since the SoS handles elections pretty tightly in the state. They do oversee elections at the local level though.
State law was changed not too long ago to require certain qualifications, like a college degree, etc (I think). I've always wanted to be a local Registrar but that was before I learned it was appointed and not elected here.

'I'll Never Be the Same': My Ukrainian Wife's First Trip to the United States
------------

The local Subway is owned and operated by a Jordanian and his wife. I ran into him one day away from the shop, and asked him how he came to move to the States.

He told me that he had been a policeman in Jordan, and came to the U.S. for training, 25 years ago. After that visit, he said that he could not imagine anywhere else that he could want to live.

So, he went home, collected his wife, applied for citizenship here, and the rest is history. "This is the greatest place in the world" he said, "I would never want to live anywhere else".

Posted by: Blue Bird of F'ing Joy at November 08, 2018 10:06 PM (lD3vL)

For me, that day came in the hospital a couple months ago. I still dragged myself to the polls, because it is important. I picked a time when I thought the lines would be short. I got short lines, but the only way I made it through was that the poll workers dragged me out of the lines and hand-walked me through the process. Most places people still care enough that if you can get to the polls, they will find a way to get you through the physical process. Hopefully they aren't as accommodating towards people who are not legally registered to vote.

309 That skin story wasn't nice to inflict on us poor psoriasis sufferers late at night.

The upside is that I thought you were going to show some other horror story that was real.

I know the commercials: "the heartbreak of psoriasis".

That isn't the half of it. The skin is the largest organ of the body. Without the skin we'd fall apart literally we are a bag of bones. Take away the bag and what have you got?

Psoriasis is like living with another being. It has a mind of it's own. It will retreat and leave you in peace sometimes and others will attack and attack and make your life a living hell. That's not counting walking around in public feeling like a leper. In fact a lot of cases of leprosy in medieveal times was misdiagnoses psoriasis.

Sometimes it itches and sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes certain cremes will work and others they won't.

I'm now experience what I think is a further stage on my ankles where the skin is like a bunch of little blisters that can scrap off real easy and you have lymph sores underneath that take forever to heal and it feels like a leather cuff and looks very bad.

I've seen some people have it on their face in a large splotch and those folks I really feel sorry for.

Anyway. Psoriasis ain't no joke. But it's okay. I'll let my 'visitor' know where to find you. You'll have fun.

326 301 Eh, it you fired it in a descending trajectory off a really high mountain that might actually happen as the potential energy loss was enough to add kinetic energy even accounting for the air resistance.

I'm guessing that's not the scenario.

Nah. Even in that case, it will shed velocity/energy until equilibrium is established by terminal velocity. It might shed energy more slowly than a 'level' shot, but it sure ain't gaining any.
Posted by: John Wesley Hardin at November 08, 2018 10:47 PM (YvUf/)


Terminal velocity depends on air pressure, though. That's why I said you'd have to fire it off a really high mountain.

When capsules return from orbit they gain kinetic energy until they get into the lower reaches of the atmosphere.

Pink Floyd, for instance. I will not buy anything of theirs EVER again, until Roger Waters is roasting in hell.
Posted by: qdpsteve



You won't have to worry about that since they are not making anymore albums. Waters left the band in a huff decades ago. Richard Wright is dead. Gilmore is rich and happy making solo albums occasionally and Nick Mason is involved in auto racing now. FYI, the last Pink Floyd album that came out was Endless River. They found some recordings by Richard Wright and built an album around it Its pretty good. Came out in 2014 and Gilmore said its the last PF album. All of them are prog-moonbats. Waters is just more loud about it.

Take this time to consider evacuating the state.

During the '30's so many jews knew they should get out but didn't and then when they tried, they couldn't and wound up worse off.

California probably won't get that bad but it will get bad enough.

Consider selling out and moving before it gets too late and they penalize you for moving. Oh yes. they do that in NY and NJ they will audit your ass for years trying to claim some of your income for their own. Seen it done. Connecticut too.

350 Regarding the earlier thread about black people reacting to music they (ostensibly) never heard before. And yeah, often they had. I mean, one of the members of that duo was a Lars-worshipper. And we're supposed to believe he never heard One before?

Nonetheless, I have a suggestion and an anecdote.

The suggestion: some Grateful Dead, a band I found nowhere on either list, and which has interesting interaction potential.

My main suggestion: Franklin's Tower
Or, if you want to mess with them: Cosmic Charlie or China Cat Sunflower

The anecdote: many years ago, when I had little in the way of funds, I journeyed to Chicago to see some Dead shows. Somehow, I found myself waiting at a bus stop in the South of Chicago, and I had with me a large boom box, and, young enough to be heedless, I was playing it at top volume. Of course I was being rude to the black woman and her two children who were waiting with me, but I was oblivious. Music was a universal good, no? Anyway, the instrumental Slipknot! finished, and Franklin's Tower began. And the two children began dancing to it. And they sang along. But what they sang was, instead of

Roll Away
The Dew

was

There's Something About

438 Well, I finished tearing down my Ford transmission today. No other burned or damaged parts, besides the direct clutch. You can still see the part numbers stamped on the faces of the bands and other friction plates. But rubber seals were all a little crisp.

Took the empty case to the car wash, and gave it a good blast with engine degreaser and then the wash gun. Cleaned up pretty nice.

Off to the transmission shop tomorrow with the relevant parts. Will probably get a rebuilt converter, too, unless they tell me it can be flushed and reused.

And this thing does not have a front sprag clutch in it. It has a "mechanical diode", which is apparently a ratchet with an engineering degree. It clicks when you turn it. I am reading that they were troublesome in these transmissions when used behind the Ford powerstroke diesels. Might replace that with a sprag if the tranny shop recommends it.

I am starting to come around to your way of thinking. In my case, it is usually delivering bad news to my superiors and getting fired isn't on my list of things to do. I don't ever uptalk, though - and I have no vocal fry that I am aware of. I just sometimes have to check myself and be diplomatic (though it usually comes as a pause *before* I start, not in the middle).

Actually, most people want to be lied to, they just don't want to know that they are being lied to.

As for bad news, the way to soften it is to keep open lines of communication and manage the expectations at the get go. For example, when someone hopes a McGuffin will be ready in three weeks and it takes a month, say "30% chance of two weeks, 50% at three, and 80% at four."

So when things go side-ways you always can remind them of the 20% chance known up front.

The way it has to go:

'So man, were you running a bit late today? Maybe forget the deodorant?'

Trump would not hesitate to bring up all of Biden's bullshit from over the years, especially the plagiarism and his remarks about Obama while Biden was running against him in '08(that the McCain campaign wouldn't let Palin use because 'civility').
Posted by: davidt at November 08, 2018 11:31 PM (mU726)


Oh, no question. But Biden, while not smart, has a large store of animal cunning. At the level of rhetoric, he is a formidable opponent, however lame he may be in every other sphere, as he showed in the Ryan debate. That puts him far above the lightweights who are talked about for the Dem ticket in 2020, who have nothing. They are empty shells.

If I were going to pick the Dem 2020 candidate, it would definitely be Spartacus. After that, choosing between Willie Brown's girlfriend and Pocohontas is hard. What they all have in common is that they vastly overestimate their own talent.

If there are 20K ballots that missed the Sen race, it will most certainly change the outcome in Nelson's favor. Broward is 70-30 D so for 20K votes that's a net gain of 8000 for Nelson.

574 Did someone call me? ;-)

I was having major problems with drop-outs on my internet connection not very long ago; I tried to fix it (and I think, ended up making the problem worse) by *trying* to upgrade my connection from WEP to WPA2.

The next thing I knew, my computer-- a Mac-- would NOT recognize ANY WiFi password to the web.

Yet, it would still eventually connect... and then go in and out, in and out, forever and ever. Also, my connection ran agonizingly slowly. I was really sick of constantly having to wait for sites such as this one to reload.

I finally gave up a few months ago, called Frontier (who took over what I used to have, Verizon FiOS) and asked for a new router. I also moved my router to my room at home, so now it's a lot closer to my computer.

Long story short, my internet runs much more smoothly now, and my Mac has only ever had to ask for my WiFi password *once,* and it accepted it. Oh yeah, and it's a WPA2 connection.

So for whomever is having the connectivity issues, I hope this is helpful somehow.

Thanks. I am taking my time - not desperate to leave (e.g., I am not going to get fired in the next four months in all probability), but I see which way the winds are blowing. I have a weird job, so it makes finding the next one a little odd (technically in middle management, but I don't have a team that I directly own ("at large," I guess), and technical work is still ~60% of my workload most weeks). I already have the "lots of hours and no overtime" part of the gig down pat, though.

This one gal decided, rather than go to the conference room, went and hid the rest of the day in a closet two floors down - the idea being is that if she could just get through the day without being told she was fired, then all would be well and she would keep her job.

Another company had a strange guy who dressed like he was constantly on-call for a SWAT operation, black tactical clothes and jump boots. Every Day.

On his last day, the company called in the local PD to have an officer stand around the office where the news would be delivered.

Depends upon what you mean by 'reset your dsl modem combo router remotely.'

Dynamic IP accounts are routinely 'reset',' that is to say, the IP is reassigned periodically without fear or favor. That will look like a new 'dsl modem combo router' I guess... but

If you have a static IP account and your IP is being reassigned more than x2, you have to find a new ISP.

Michigan
https://preview.tinyurl.com/yckrznhm

In April, Michigan officials who oversee elections kicked Democrat Matt Morgan off the congressional ballot, leaving the Republican incumbent, Rep. Jack Bergman, to run unopposed in the general election.

Morgan, a progressive Marine veteran, pulled off the successful turnaround without help from the national party or progressive organizations set up to support veterans.

Final tally
Bergman 53%
Morgan 47%

It's time for a new leadership, Morgan said during the campaign.

Gotta disagree with you there. I remember cringing all the way though the interview he gave to Hannity and wondering how he ever made it as an attorney. He was inarticulate, confused, and frankly did not come across as very bright. I would have voted for him if I lived in Alabama because I'd vote for a garden slug over a Democrat. But I don't think he's up to the task of being AG.

Actually, while you're being sarcastic, that's actually one of the primary goals of that high speed rail line. Lots of assholes that work in Frisco own homes in the Valley, including Fresno. Because that's the only way they can afford to buy a house. They commute in, and stay in the Bay Area during the work week, only going back to their homes on the weekends.

So in essence, high speed rail is just a travel subsidy for Frisco shitheads who can't make ends meet on 6 figure salaries.

We don't need desal plants; we just need to build the reservoirs that were on the master plan during the Pat Brown years. The people who ran the state back then were competent - they had the whole thing planned out by population. "At 20 million we need these reservoirs, at 30 million we need these additional reservoirs, at 40 million..."

All the state had to do was stick to the plan. But no. We haven't built anything since CA had half its current population.

Hey, Santa Barbara did that in the early 90s during one of the droughts. Spent about $30M. Completed it just in time for the drought to end. And the commies in SB, being sooper geniuses, decided to start selling off pieces of the plant within 2 years of it's completion, using the money to fund a bunch of commie hippie boondoggles. Made about $4-5M if memory serves.

Until the next drought hit a couple of years back and they found out.... oops, the desal plant doesn't work. Guess we'd better get it repaired. The cost? About $40M.

A friend of mine from college always had a fantasy about having sex at work. So one night he sneaks his girlfriend into the office and they start going at it. Then he hears a gasp. The cleaning lady is standing ten feet away with a red face.

His response? "I didn't stop. What would be the point?" He was that kind of guy.

No, CA does have genuine, non-gorbal worming droughts. That's not an item of dispute. CA does genuinely need to build up (or down) greater water reserve emplacements.

Drought years are the perfect time to dredge/retrofit watersheds. But no. Not done on the scale necessary.

Need an example?

The Oroville mess of 2017.

The prior drought had an unprecedented potential for dredging and protecting the poorly constructed spillway.

I think it's rather funny-in a dark kind of way-that the cleaning writes that they shouldn't have to see that. That seems like a kind of moderate response although I'm sure they wanted to keep their contract with the company.

One VP who was an excellent hire was suddenly gone. Turns out he got caught having sex in the the company parking lot, during the day, with another employee. Talk about bad judgement. We were about a minute's drive from a forest preserve and other parking lots. There may have been a little more to the story, but that was the topper.

Speaking of which, I have PSA.

The guy who got deplatformed on Twitter for the clip of feeding a suffragette to an alligator has been reinstated. He can leave the clip up too. He just had to put an age warning, iirc.

The image was disturbing until I read the whole story and saw the clip. It made more sense then. It was a modern day harpy with all the matriarchy crap and she would not shut up.

Not that I condone feeding people to alligators, but a lot about video games seem appalling to me. So...whatever.

783 As far as church signs they have some funny ones on the internet. I can never be that clever, but ones I've seen which are interesting are "Choose the bread of life or you're toast" (A lot of church signs seem to relate to eternal rewards/damnation (I've never done that ). Another related one: "Exposure to the sun may prevent burning" And a virtue signaling one : "God prefers kind Atheists to hateful Christians" (Well, probably, but that sounds like it was either a church having tremendous church conflict or letting people know it's not one of "those" churches like the one that where everybody is related and they picket military funerals to protest gay marriage, One signs that sounds like it was connected to a preschool and is kind of silly cute is : God's garden : Lettuce be kind, squash gossip and turnip to church

Barrett got the stupid damn streetcars in Milwaukee - driving over potholes isn't enough, now we have tracks to drive over and streetcars swinging out in the middle of traffic. It's only a matter of time before some bicyclist gets hit by one. It'll be a novelty for a couple of months and then they'll empty out because nobody who has any choice in the matter wants to take public transportation - especially when it's 5 degrees outside and you have hoods and winos sitting next to you once you get on. I have not met one single person - even Democrats - who think it's a good idea. And yet Barrett wanted it because it's his dumbass "legacy."

802 Tammy, hi again! Just saw your question.

As far as I know there is no "big forum" at Quora where anyone and everyone can just share or ask or say things. The format of the site seems to be, ask a question or answer a question, then wait for responses. (You can of course answer your own questions, but internal etiquette at the site seems to suggest you should acknowledge you're answering your own question.)

I agree there's stuff there that's stupid, but I also think there's good stuff. IMHO there's some really good, smart, strong conservative voices there. And the site admins do a better job overall IMHO of actually policing 'the tone'; their general rule is called BNBR, which stands for 'be nice be respectful.' If someone violates it, you can report them. You can also block and mute anyone who offends you.

Anyway, I like the site, but I understand if everyone else isn't crazy wacko nuts about it.

803 Signs which I hate and which always seem to be up at Presbyterian churches are "An inclusive community" because I wonder how inclusive they are.

Reminds me of the streetcars they had installed recently in San Jose; they extend up to 12 miles or so from Downtown (it'll be urban in 10-15 years according to the City Planner), the constantly get in the way of traffic and nobody ever uses them because they mirror existing bus routes.

831 The Notebook's from a Nicholas Sparks novel. I assume it is all about two young lovers who don't live happily ever after. Because that's how Sparks gets paid.

833 Signs which I hate and which always seem to be up at Presbyterian churches are "An inclusive community" because I wonder how inclusive they are. Yes, I understand you support gay marriage but does that mean you are inclusive? If you're all white folks who share the same political POV, how inclusive, are you? You don't have to tell me that.

The one down the street has a big sign "We welcome our Muslim brothers and sisters" or some nonsense like that. Dhimmi, all of them.

And I surprised nobody has mentioned this. The reason local pols love light rails and streetcars is because when you're building infrastructure, there is a huge amount of graft. For what cities spend on these things they could put in a killer web of bus routs and have mass trans the envy of the world, but they won't. Some of that is global warming bullshit, but most of it is no stations and tracks. Hard to get rich in public service on contracts for little plastic rain shelters and 2 benches.

835 Just in case you guys didn't read WD link.

"Multiple men reportedly put their bodies on the line to protect patrons at the club in California where a gunman entered Wednesday night, killing 12 and reportedly taking his own life.

“While we were all dog-piled at the side, there were multiple men that got on their knees and pretty much blocked all of us with their backs towards the shooter, ready to take a bullet for any single one of us,” Teylor Whittler, woman who had been in the club during the shooting, said Thursday morning, via ABC News."

Bravery always brings tears to my eyes.

Only people upset by this: fvckingcrazy feminazis. Ruins their "bad, toxic white men" shit. I know none...but I kinda wish I did so I could tell them off.

854 This is an excerpt from one of the Iron Grampa linked stories. Very moving to me; nice to see America still looks this way to people.

"On the walk back to the hotel that night, my wife, who is Ukrainian, told me, “I’m so shocked and impressed. I’ve never seen such a kind gesture by a stranger. It was magnificent.”

I was moved by the gesture, too. But it wasn’t the first time someone in America had bought me a drink for being a veteran. What I didn’t immediately understand is that from my wife’s point of view, it was a singularly unprecedented, characteristically American, display of gratitude.

A week later, Lilya and I were having a drink at a bar in my hometown of Sarasota, Florida. We chatted with the barman and it came up that I was a former Air Force pilot and a war correspondent.

When it was time to square up the tab, the barman said with a smile that he wouldn’t take my money.

“Thank you for your service,” he simply explained.

On our way out the door, my wife stopped, took my hand, turned to me, and said, “This is the greatest country in the world.” "

Each of us, in whatever way is possible has a contribution to make to that task, no matter how insignificant it may seem.

We've faced similar threats throughout our history and prevailed--as we will in this threat. Won't be easy, but win we shall.
So never be ashamed of this land, never despair, and never quit.
Remember this again, we are Americans, so that head is held HIGH and PROUD. Because, as Americans, we're denied the option of failure.

Step 2 : Get Romney, Collins, Murkowski, Cindy McCain (once Ducey seats her to replace Kyl), etc. to party-switch.
Step 3 : Impeach/Convict, Impeach Convict again
Step 4 : Throw Speakership of the House to Ocasio-Cortez
Step 5 : Install Ocasio-Cortez as President in order to give us that bonus middle finger of her technically not being old enough to qualify.

Acosta could have asked his question, then followup, and sat the fvck down. Instead he decided to give a speech. It was obvious he had no question and Trump had dismissed him and was moving on to someone else.

The aide was sensitive to the cue and sought to retrieve the microphone for the next question from someone else. Acosta was not going to give the mic up and was using his body in an aggressive manner to keep the mic out of her reach.

1006 Interesting that the Left focuses on the silencing of the Press angle with Jim Acosta.

I prefer to look at it as creating a hostile work place for women, and the requirements to prevent that from happening.

How many more women must Acosta intimidate and touch without their permission before his actions are put under control.

And does he really have the temperament to be working where he has access to women?

Someday, grandchildren on my knee, I'll tell them of a time when there was this organization known as The National Organization for Women that would have been appalled at the young womans treatment and called for a boycott of CNN and the firing of Jim Acosta.

The baseline is for the new acting AG to interview Mueller and his team and be brought up to date on the status of the "investigation," what is he actually "investigating" that is relevant to the authorizing memo, and what remains for him to wrap up his investigation.

This is very basic.

Including the fact that, at least as far as the Democrat Party goes, they're not really "the Left" in any meaningful sense.

They're far closer to "The Right", i.e. Fascist national totalitarianism.

But they have no problem using "The Left", meaning Soros and his Antifa goons, to further their ends of eroding western civilization to the point where it is no longer tenable.

The question is:

Who's using whom?

1089 Okay I think I've got the legal chain of custody down pat. CBS still owns the rights to all Star Trek. But Paramount owns the Trek movies. CBS issued to Paramount a license for more movies if they are different hence the Kelvin timeline.

Star Trek: Discovery comes off the Kelvin timeline license. Though it is marketed by CBS. The guy who is charting the series now, Kurtzman, co-wrote the first two Kelvin movies and wrote for Universal the bomb movie The Mummy - great resume huh?

STD is floundering. So they bring Picard back and it just might be CBS is trying to retcon TOS, TNG, and Enterprise out of existence by merging original and Kelvin timelines into one new timeline. Crisis of Infinite Earths anyone?

But now Les Moonves and his six supporters have been removed from CBS because of #MeToo. Kurtzman though is still under contract until 2023 to oversee Star Trek for CBS.

Just give me the Agonizer.

I think there is at least one major difference:

The Klan was explicitly Democrat, and too their order from them.

Antifa owes zero allegiance to the Democrat Party. Their allegiance is to International Socialism. I fully expect Trump, in the fullness of time, to take advantage of this fissure as much as possible. The GOP itself is far too gutless and craven to do so on its own.

In this modern day and age, we, the people, are conditioned to submit to the state, and their agents whenever there is a dispute. We surrender to the police, we hire lawyers, we go to court and accept the judgement that is rendered.

What happens when the state, and their agents are not honest arbitrators of disputes? What happens to honest people when the state becomes corrupt and surrendering to the state for arbitration is no longer an option?

Because once you cross that line of refusing to submit to the state's authority, there is no turning back from that.

Actually you remembered correctly. I got two of them for our mountain place. They are incredibly lightweight and easy to set-up. I use one to give me a remote look at the meter for our solar charged battery bank. I can tell at a glance if we are fully charged or depleted, without having to send someone out physically to check. They have sound and motion sensor capability. One thing odd is if something triggers the motion sensor it takes a 12 second video and then goes idle for five minuts. If I've got burglars, I'd like to see what happens after the door flies open.

If you put the camera in an unobtrusive location, where a crook would overlook it in their haste, and put a micro SD card in it, it will record all detected motion for as long as they are there.
