The Saturday Night Joke

A gas station owner in Arkansas was trying to increase his sales, so he put up a sign that read:

*** "FREE SEX w/fill-up ... just guess the right number between 1 & 10.” ***

Soon a local redneck pulled in, filled his tank, and asked for his FREE SEX.

The owner told him to pick a number from 1 to 10. If he guessed correctly, he would get his FREE SEX.

The redneck guessed ‘8’. The proprietor said, "You were close. The number was ‘7’. Sorry, but no FREE SEX this time."

A week later, the same redneck, along w/his brother, Bubba, pulled in for another fill-up. Again he asked for his FREE SEX.

The proprietor again gave him the same story, and asked him to guess the correct number.

The redneck guessed ‘2’ this time.

The proprietor said, "Sorry, it was ‘3’. You were close, but no FREE SEX this time."

As they were driving away, the redneck said to his brother, "I think that game is rigged, and he doesn't really give away FREE SEX."

Bubba replied, "No. it ain't, Billy Ray. It ain't rigged. My wife won twice last week."


New Year's resolution? Sure, better Saturday Night Jokes.

Snort worthy. Diversity and inclusiveness for me and not thee.

Nicole Parsons recently put up the sign on her window, which read “F*ck Nazis you are not welcome here,” after getting tired of her university’s silence towards hate crimes on campus, as per BuzzFeed News on Dec. 23.

Parsons said in the report that she was compelled to put up the sign after a “Happy Hanukkah” sign on a resident assistant’s door was vandalized with a swastika early this December.

“I thought maybe if I hang the sign up, the person who drew the swastika will see it and see someone condemning their actions, even if the administration doesn’t do it,” Parsons was quoted as saying.

She, however, was surprised when she received an email from residence director Eddie Papazoni telling her to take down her sign.

So does Grover know that Nicole Parson?

Grover dropping the F Bomb?

Of course it was difficult to walk the following day. No shit Sherlock.

But a more distressing bit of effort he’s put into his body is wrapping his penis around a rolling pin so he could get it tattooed. Ray, 61, used a rolling pin to keep his penis in position during a four hour tattoo session. He says it wasn’t too painful (he’s used to the pain of getting tattoos), but his testicles swelled up to four times their usual size once the deed was done. ‘I don’t feel the pain anymore but the tattooist couldn’t believe I wanted to get such a sensitive area done,’ said Ray. ‘There was quite a bit of blood and it was uncomfortable to walk the next day.

In retail, if you snooze you lose.

While many of us are still finishing off our festive leftovers, the UK's big-name stores appear to have already moved on from Christmas - with several putting Easter eggs on sale.

Shoppers have been posting pictures of chocolate eggs on the shelves of a number of high street chains on social media, stunned at how quickly they have appeared.

Yeah, yeah. It's Saturday night and not a Gun Thread, yet. I would rather carry my S&W Body Guard .380.

The Femme Fatale Ring Gun from the 1800s

In the early 1800s personal protection guns were all the rage, jut like the 2mm guns marked as Femme Fatal. Large enough to be worn on most any finger, the revolver had to be manually rotated through each cylinder. They were sold in small oval shaped jewelry boxes. For a time the French company sold them as a matching set his and hers, and they were dubbed the Les Companions.

These pipsqueak rounds, 2mm and 4mm,just have 2-5 grains lead flying at less than 500-fps from a cylinder with no barrel propelled by a tiny charge of blackpowder. They generate less than 2 ft. lbs of force, which is less than most pelletguns today, and is about enough to penetrate an inch of ballistics gel, or one side of a tin can.

These rings provided a certain state of perceived security for those solo traveling and, at the end of the day, the round would do some damage at extremely close ranges.

The Femme Fatales were never made in great quantity and are such a novel item that they appeal to any collector of odd firearms as well as vintage gun guys

91 the story of tabasco sauce is interesting. after the civil war a man returned to his homestead on an island near new orleans and found his family had nothing. he took some local chiles, processed them (some say he copied another popular product of the day) and sold the small bottles to restaurants and hotels. it was a hit.

the company is still owned by the same family.

Posted by: qdpsteve at December 29, 2018 10:04 PM (miE9U)


It requires a pressure cooker.

Put one teaspoon of dried ground Thai pepper and one teaspoon of dried ground cayenne pepper into a Ball jelly jar - the half pint size.
Mince up two cloves of garlic and put in the jelly jar
Fill the jelly jar up to about an inch from the top with sesame oil

Put the lid on the jar and put the jar into a pressure cooker, seal it and put the pressure cooker on the burner and bring up to 15 lbs pressure. Keep it at 15 lbs pressure for about 5 or ten minutes and then pull it off the heat and let it cool naturally.

When it is cool enough that the pressure lets you open the lid, you are done and ready.

Don't heat oil directly in the pressure cooker and don't cook oil in an open jar in the pressure cooker, it will eat the seal and probably make the oil taste rubbery.

194 Don't heat oil directly in the pressure cooker and don't cook oil in an open jar in the pressure cooker, it will eat the seal and probably make the oil taste rubbery.

pressure cooker? That's a lot of work.

I just roast chilis and the veg, cook it down in some water, blend, add vinegar, salt and extra spices, and put the bottle in the fridge.

Chanel is a luxury brand, and they want to keep the exclusivity. They are very strict about who they sell their stock to in general.

If, as a vendor, you're caught selling anywhere else ( like eBay on the side, or whatever) you're banned from ever being a vendor again.

Hot sauce needs to be paired.

Tabasco, while excellent on eggs also partners well with ham and surprisingly well with chicken noodle soup.

Tapatio is probably the second best all around. Put it on anything to improve it, but there is always something better.

Cholula is perfect with breakfast tacos and with Jimmy Dean breakfast bowls

325 Music History

Born on this day in 195mumblety, the good doctor, front man for True North and also the trio I'm fortunate to be a part of.

Told MCA records to bite his backside back in the day when they wanted to add some steel guitar and fiddle to his band's (at the time) first album which was completed. Refuses to have anything to do with record labels to this day and has turned down invites to songwriter get togethers with major publishers.

Went back to school to get his masters, which is when I met him, and ended up with a PhD in audiology. Specializes in inner ear disorders and is referred to by some as the Dizzy Doctor.

Call me biased but is one of my all time favorite songwriters and people.

Can't even get to utube on this fone so I can't do a link for ya.
Now, if someone would care to (don't worry-not holding my breath) you can put True North Live at Liberty Hall in the search box and hear one of his many fine tunes, "Waiting for Angels."

Introducing the song he seemed nervous like I've never seen,, but then the music starts.

331 Tabasco has its uses, it is a familiar flavor profile I guess you could say. Mcilhenny has a long history with military rations, it used to be if you wrote them they would send out a "cookbook" for making things with C-rations or somesuch. They did put a small glass bottle of Tabasco in the MRE rations for a long time. They still do, though no longer a bottle, it's a small pouch like fast food restaurant ketchup is supplied. I have dozens of the older hot sauce bottles, who could discard such a wonderful article of civilization? I like Franks hot sauce, keep Shriraca sauce around however the fuck its spelled.

Heat for heat's sake alone is stupid. I like the hot flavor, not battery acid I'm gonna die heat. One thing I noticed, Chili Powder goes bad pretty fast, and it's hard to find the good stuff. The supermarket stuff sucks, even when its fresh. Blech

410 "Most Americans should toss out their entire spice rack and start over. Yes that is a generalization but more true than not. The ground stuff like powders go stale pretty quickly."

Cocoa and cinnamon, Bay leaves, cloves, cardamom, ginger, etc keep really well. Marjoram, Thyme, etc, turn to sawdust quick! Whole Nutmeg keeps ok, the ground stuff doesn't. It depends, though generally you are correct. Basil is only good fresh.

One thing that's weird, I inherited a jar of Mexican oregano from my mom. It was pretty old, Spice Island or McCormick iirc probably from 1970s but the flavor was strong, and fantastic in chili. Light green fine powder, almost like flour. So I run out eventually, and go to buy more. WTF is this shit? Tastes nowhere near as good, and all that's available is just flakes or leaves, not ground.

the truck drove into the left hand median before spinning out.

the minivan, spit, was smart enough to stay in the drier tracks.

the state trooper just kept going? was he trying to decide whether he should stop the truck or the minivan?

461 He is. Terrible decision maker under pressure. Bad machanics as he has a very heavy plant foot and his knee is already trashed from that. Relies too much of rolling out, heavy plant foot, and throwing long balls across the field. He is also made of glass and can't take hits.

The NFL ain't for him. Great kid though.

538 I've long thought that about lots of spices - go weak or bad pretty quickly when already ground. Somebody noted exceptions - whole clove, cinnamon, bay leaves, a few others.


Should probably get a spice grinder, do them as I need them. Have a 25-yr old Krups coffee grinder I could use, but much easier to not have to clean it out all the time (many spices do not improve your coffee).


Though it would be extravagant, by my fanatically cost-efficient, cheap-ass, OCD standards to have 2 essentially similar contraptions.

547 Jake Fromm is a better QB than Tua. Watch the SECCG this year for proof. He is the next Drew Brees. He is ridiculously intelligent and processing speed is off the charts. But we will see. Both are good eggs and great kids and competitors.

But you can't argue who is the better pro style QB and who can stay in the pocket, take hits, take pressure, and make all the throws.

548 538, that is what many do. Use a coffee grinder just for spices. And the Indian trick is to "toast" them over low heat in a pan until you get the smell, and then grind them.


btw, the funny thing about mace vs nutmeg is that they are so similar, they even come from the same plant/seed. But only nutmeg has a state named after it.

In my part of Jesusland, used to be $275/mo. on a very nice 4500 sf place. After age 62 1/2, you stopped paying the education portion, which is 2/3 of the taxes, so down to less than $100.

a single punch for your 1911 or a punch set? I guess you could go with one punch now that I think of it. I haven't detail stripped in a while. You can't beat the Wilson's imo. The first test for an unreliable 1911 is a new Wilson mag.

593 Quint, just replacing the 3/16 (as I recall) punch from a standard set - broke the end off the original trying to remove the extractor pin from a CZ-83. I gather I could fix that - forget the term, level it off - but was lazy, and it helped me get to the minimum $ amount for the discount.


Don't recall which punches I use on the 1911 - and I also am due for a detail strip. Use lead bullets, so lube/powder fouling is very heavy.


Also working myself up to do my own detail strip (at least the slide) on my XD. It's not recommended, but apparently not too bad if you're moderately gun-wise and careful. Thinking of getting roll-pin punches, and even starter punches and roll-pin holders, too. Will need some of that for building ARs out.

598 Notre Dame is garbage. UGA was easily #3 best team in country and probably #2. Should've been UgA vs. Clemson. And Bama vs. OU. Committee got it wrong. Pick the best 4 teams and fuck politics or expand the playoffs to 16 teams, have a Power 5 league and a non Power 5 league, and playoffs and championships for each, and bowl games for the 1 and done teams who make the playoffs and can play each other in bowls, and shorten the regular season to 11 games plus conference title.

Damn, it ain't hard or just pick the best 4 teams. ND was again clearly not even close.

Posted by: literally serious at December 30, 2018 12:20 AM (CvDgu)

599 I've long thought that about lots of spices - go weak or bad pretty quickly when already ground.

Of course. Many flavor/aroma elements are unsaturated compounds (e.g., terpenoids) that undergo rapid oxidation by oxygen (auto-oxidation), followed by further reactions of the highly reactive hydroperoxides/oxetanes so formed to produce low molecular weight carboxylic acids, many of which are funky. For example, butyric acid (the C4 carboxylic acid) causes the smell of rancid butter,while caproic acid (the C6 homologue) causes the smell of goats.

Argon will work, but so will nitrogen, or the dreaded CO2. I'd plump for CO2, because it's heavier than air.

Incidentally, reaction with oxygen compounds (triplet oxygen [the usual stuff] - singlet oxygen [an excited state formed by UV irradiation] and especially ozone [also produced by UV irradiation] is why rubber, plastics, etc. decompose so quickly here in SoCal. Lots of sunshine produces lots of highly reactive oxygen species (singlet oxygen and ozone, both of which are much more reactive than triplet oxygen), and then nature takes its course through [2+2] or [3+2] cycloaddition reactions with olefins (compounds containing C=C double bonds), which then cleave.

I've heard that, too, but never tried it. Sam Rubin at Berkeley was killed during WWII doing chemical warfare work on phosgene when the wind shifted. He'd begun work on using 14-C as a tracer in biological reactions, work that Calvin took up, and for which he subsequently received the Nobel Prize. Calvin used to send Rubin's widow flowers (IIRC) on the anniversary of Rubin's death.

645 Interesting about Rubin dying from phosgene, Jay.


Kind of related, Japanese planners setting up the strategy against our perfectly anticipated invasion of Kyushu (Op Olympic) were quite concerned that no Japanese actions be seen as anything justifying US introduction of chemical weapons. We hadn't used any up to that point, of course, but the Japanese - rather astutely, given American casualty-fatigue, and the existence of proponents of chem warfare in the US system - seemed quite focused on this. All according to post-war interrogations and documents.


Kind of funny when you consider Mac would have used as many nukes as Groves could get him in connection with the Kyushu operation (some wanted 15, seems only 3 or 4 would have been available by Nov. 1 '45).

It is, somewhat (AW ca. 40 - I just looked it up, whereas that of air is 0.81 * 28 + 0.2*32). But it's a lot less available than CO2. A scrap of dry ice in a blender is pretty easily managed, but where do you get argon, which is of no particular benefit? All you need is something that isn't oxygen.

Ozone is super-reactive, almost like elemental fluorine. Singlet oxygen is less reactive, but still pretty hot. Triplet oxygen is still less reactive with olefins (mostly through beta oxidation), but still does the job.

The reactivity profiles of the three are the convolution of each one's partial pressure with its reactivity.

Pro tip: to get rid of rust, moisten the object with a paste of oxalic acid (Barkeeper's Friend, at Home Depot) in water, and stick the object out in the sun. Oxalic acid chelates Fe(III), and under UV irradiation reduces Fe(III) to Fe(II) (the ferrioxalate actinometer).

NB: this only works if the rust is still red (Fe2O3, the mineral hematite). If it's gray, it's picked up another oxygen atom to become the mixed valence magnetite (Fe3O4), the stuff used on magnetic tapes, which resists this reaction.

Of course there are. But to ignore his flaws is silly. I stand by my accurate analysis and was proven right during the UGA game. Terrible under pressure, made of glass, hates to get hit, and has a very heavy front foot when he throws after rolling out or deep which is already destroying his right knee (if he played baseball and pitched he would have been taught better by high school to avoid that now it's too late.). He will get paid and is worth the risk. I don't believe he is NFL QB material for those reasons. He won't last. But he will get paid and good for him. NFL teams are wrong more than they are right at QB.

He ain't a pocket passer reading defenses at the line and making ajustmests type of QB, which is the most successful NFL QB. He is a roll out and scrambler who extends plays and hates pressure and contact.

It is what it is CM. Let's see what happens next year and if the coaches do their job.

Close. Baking powder is a mixture of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3; washing soda is Na2CO3) and tartaric acid. When wet, the acid-base reaction frees CO2, which causes dough to rise.

Posted by: Quint at December 30, 2018 12:51 AM (n13/j)


No. not some kind of adrenaline.

Nerve agents work by breaking down the enzymes that terminate the action of neurotransmitter enzymes (by breaking down the neurotransmitters after the signal has crossed the synapse). That is why nerve agent poisoning symptoms include tremors, convulsions, tightness of chest, loss of breathing, etc.

Atropine blocks the action of neurotransmitter enzymes, so reduces the symptoms.

History isn't on his side in having a long successful NFL career. He isn't and never has been a pro style QB who stands in the pocket.

716 I saw a graphic along with a video description of what Bama did for Tua's ankle. It was broadcast pre game, and apparently currently only available there.

It was cool. Imagine a back shot of a seperated bone from the tibia. They then devised a way to drill a couple of holes on each side of said bone. Then, they sent attachment points through, with titanium wire, that had a stop at the first end, like a rivet cap. A racheted wire then was sent through, to put in a cap on the other side. Tension was then put on until the bone was moved into place.

Simple. Brilliant.

727 Jim, i read a great engineering paper on the sr71 and working with titanium. Titanium reacts with flourine chlorine, cadmium and other like stuff. When the mechanics used cadmium plated wrenches, just the trace cadmium left on the bolt head caused the bolt head to fall off at 600 degrees. These were the bolts holding the engines. They spot welded wing panels, the ones done in the summer failed quickly and the ones done in the winter lasted almost indefinitely. After spot welding they would wash them off with tap water, the city used chlorine but only in the summer. It took crazy engineering.

That's an awesome info find. I'll have to come back tomorrow in hopes to find a link to drill deeper.

Taurus made a series of Total Titanium revolvers. S&W had a lot of revolvers with Titanium cylinders and Scandium alloy frames.

How much you wanna bet that damn near NONE of the owners of such, have diligently researched as to the care and maintenance of the Titanium components of their hand-held-mini-grenades?

761 If Quint is still here: IIRC, Per Palp, homemade detergent is, by volume,1c of washing soda to 3c of borax. He said you can grate some Fels-naphtha bar into it, but I don't remember how much. Maybe just add it to taste. Dissolve in cold water, usually 1cup in 5 gallons of water. Soak at least overnight then launder.

772 Not to be crappy, but Dad has dementia, Mom had a stroke and I need a liver transplant.

I meant what I said above, however.

This is called "Life". Nobody asked for it, but if you don't find the blessings, you're doing it wrong.

-Mom is regaining use of her right side.
-Dad is more loving after I called the police.
-I have quit drinking beer.
-I'm closer to my Brother.
-I'm closer to Mom and Dad, even through their nonsense.
-I get to talk to people with more experience.
-My humility toward God has gone through the roof.
-I can cook things that I never thought I would.
-My Brother helps me cope.
-I am more patient than I ever thought I'd be.
-I get to honor my Mother and Father instead of resenting them at times.
-I have found out who my real friends are.
-I can celebrate small accomplishments by others on a daily basis.
-I don't get to be political because I don't watch the news, much.
-I dedicate more time to others, instead of being selfish.

...there are many blessings from endurance. I'm not right-in-the-head all the time, but God's reminders are enormous.

783 Slap that is quite a load. Dementia alone can really mess things up. But you can also find solace in honoring the parent, caring for them when you can, and giving them as much peace as possible. There are some crazy times for sure, mostly someone getting lost, wandering off, that type of thing. But that does not have to be the end, people can also find a routine that works for them, along with medical help,that can allow many years where at least you can still hug them and tell them how you feel. Where they can live in dignity. And one day we can cure this thing.

We hang-in there as much as we can because we have to. It is up to us to become the caregivers that our Parents were to us.

I'm not saying that you must take all responsibility, but I understand the frustration and helplessness that comes with it.

My Dad packed suitcases every morning, until I took them away, and asked me where he was supposed to go.

He's had that delusion ever since I called the police and ambulance for Mom.

His "go-to" move is to grab her by the arm and not let go.

He has never been violent and I warned him about doing what he's doing, but there it was.

...and even through the propensity for this newfound violence, Mom nags and lectures this mental midget.

The incessant arguing and juvenile behavior between the both of them should drive me to flip a fucking table.

When I call them "The Eight-Year-Old and The Five-Year-Old", I don't do it out of hyperbole.

Returned yesterday from a week long trip to visit family for the holidays. Pups were glad we were back, and expressed their joy by waking me up at 2:30 this morning.

Thanks, Brother. I attempt to keep my rhetoric within The Masses. I'm a Colloquial, Ignorant Grammar-Nazi with a heart.

The newest guy I've found is Owen Benjamin. He is a comedian that refuses to bow to leftist Hollywood.

Vox Day is someone I try to follow, but his learned rhetoric and well-read education is too rich for my blood.

I'm also just a high-school educated Moron who speaks beyond his britches.

In other words? I'm just another guy with a keyboard.

Are you connected to the home-schooled group where you are? This is a self-selected group that you would feel at home with, mostly. Always outliers.

I'm urging my local pragmatic group to act as Debate Judges for home-schooled high school students. There is a tournament in a nearby town in April, after our Constitution Bee in early March.

Good people with shared values are out there, but are like in a separate, hidden community. As protection from the Left,

850 That Word-Salad sucked.

I won't even insult the collective intelligence of The Horde by trying to re-structure my last post.

Listen to me, humble one.

Wisdom has nothing to do with education levels, especially today. And you are wise, with a good heart. That puts you ahead of every person who voted for a criminal government headed by Hillary.

You have great worth, in my humble eyes.

854 I've been awake for too long, Boys and Girls. I must take my leave and wish each-and-every one of you the most beautiful of holidays.

G'Night, Ev'ry-Buddy!

855 I'd love to stay. Alas.

Time to be humbled by some machines in the hotel gym.

But just this brief time with the Horde is like a crepuscular ray of sunshine illuminating the darkness.

857 Salty,

No, not connected with home schoolers. My boys are 21 and 18. But I could still volunteer.

The insane, verbally abusive rhetoric parroted by the "tolerant " lefties out here makes it scary to even look for other conservatives. I've made the mistake of meeting people, talking with them and thinking, "hey, maybe they aren't insane." Well, they are. And that's the end of that.

A good friend of mine got into the gym routine when a new gym sprang up in between his apartment and his workplace.
