Saturday Overnight Open Thread (4/20/19)

The Saturday Night Joke

I was sitting on the edge of the bed, watching my wife, Beverly, who was looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off I asked what she’d like to have for her birthday.

‘I’d like to be eight again’, she replied, still looking in the mirror.

On the morning of her Birthday, I arose early, made her a nice Big bowl of Coco Pops, and then took her to Adventure World theme park. What a day! I put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Roller Coaster, everything there was. Five hours later we staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down

I then took her to a McDonald’s and ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake.

Then it was off to a movie, popcorn, a soda pop, and her favorite candy, M&M’s. What a fabulous adventure!

Finally, she wobbled home and collapsed into bed exhausted.

I leaned over my wife & with a big smile lovingly asked, ‘Well Dear, what was it like being eight again?

Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed. ‘I meant my dress size, you idiot!!!!’

The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he is gonna get it wrong.

OK, Lent is over and Easter is tomorrow. But for you Catholics planning on next year's Lenten meals, Muskrat is for you!!!

Luckily for the Catholics in Detroit, we here at WU have their muskrat-cooking needs covered, having previously posted the recipe for Cream of Muskrat Casserole, as well as how to find the full cookbook Recipes for cooking muskrat meat.


Another reason to remain Lutheran.

George Washington, The Father of Our Country and quite the whiskey man.

You can still buy a bottle of small-batch whiskey at a re-creation of one of the largest whiskey distilleries of the late-18th century United States. Even better, it was owned by George Washington, the only Founding Father who, when he wasn’t building a nation, was trying to lift its spirits.

Immensely popular during its time, Washington’s distillery was located three miles from his estate in Mount Vernon. Records show that it produced 11,000 gallons of whiskey in 1799, the year of his death. It also produced such delights as peach and persimmon brandy. The distillery was destroyed in a fire in 1814, but resurrected in 2007, and today, conducts tours and whiskey tastings.

Once again, Florida Man is our Genius Award Winner.

Authorities in Florida are asking for the public’s help in tracking down a man who they say burglarized a Little League concession stand wearing nothing more than a ballcap and gloves.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office says the naked burglar struck the stand at Fischer Field in Dunedin almost two weeks ago.

Deputies say the burglar stole cameras and a cash box with $250 inside, and he caused $5,000 in damage.

Had my annual physical early this week. Lost 40 pounds since last time he measured. BP way down and off meds. Blood glucose way down. Good/bad cholesterol within the norm. Doc asked what I was doing and I started to tell him low carb/Keto/Intermittent fasting and I could tell he wasn't receptive at all. He told me to go back to my standard American diet because Keto bad or something.

47 Drove to Topeka Friday night. Lines of smoke, and as darkness fell, orange flames peppered the horizon as farmers burn their fields to keep the cedar trees out. Eye catching.

Orange sparks were wafting skyward as part of the Spring tradition here.

In the daytime, the burned earth is rejuvenated by the fire. In less than a week, green shoots appear. These grasses have increased nitrogen levels, and make better forage for Angus.

So fires in Kansas leads to better steaks. Ta Da!

Yep. And cheap mattresses can screw up your whole body. Never cheap out on shoes or mattresses.

BUT... you do have to keep in mind that while cheap shoes and mattresses are crap, expensive shoes and mattresses aren't necessarily good. You have to do your research to determine whether the high price is due to their actual quality or simply due to trendiness.

Way back when I was just starting out in machine shops, we'd mix some lard in with our cutting oil. It worked great for tapping threads in holes and you'd rarely break a tap off inside when you used it.

You didn't want to break a tap off inside a threaded hole. Took forever to remove it and the foreman would remember that forever. And by "forever" I mean "come time to pass out raises."

134 I worked backstage at a conert arena until about a year and a half ago.

Although they might not be getting groupies the way they did in the past, the groupie culture is far from dead. It's actually most apprent in the hip hop/ rap culture; after a show, it's basically a freaking plethora of scantaily clad women who are guests of the band. Whores on parade.


Also... 29 olds are not the ones to ask about groupie procurement. Ask the bands tour manager. Or maybe even the stage manager. Most of those guys are over 35. They are they ones who have direct contact with the band, rather than some 29 year old who is somewhat new on the crew.

Well, I've mentioned this before.

When I was younger, I would take a 10 day to two week motorcycle/camping trip every year. I always traveled the tiniest little back roads on the map.

In the course of those trips, I would happen upon all sorts of interesting Americana. Local festivals, museums, mom & pop restaurants, etc., and of course, the people.

At any rate, my favorite two museums were the Greyhound Bus Museum in Hibbing, Minnesota, and the Granite Museum in Elberton, Georgia.

"The final spark was provided by the ammunition for the new Enfield P-53 rifle.[38] These rifles, which fired Miniť balls, had a tighter fit than the earlier muskets, and used paper cartridges that came pre-greased. To load the rifle, sepoys had to bite the cartridge open to release the powder.[39] The grease used on these cartridges was rumoured to include tallow derived from beef, which would be offensive to Hindus,[40] and pork, which would be offensive to Muslims."

You start with an Angus cow. Bring in bull semen. Raise the resulting calf on free-range prairie grass and mama Angus milk.

Finish at a feed lot, then slaughter. The extra fat is tallow.

194 Had my annual physical early this week. Lost 40 pounds since last time he measured. BP way down and off meds. Blood glucose way down. Good/bad cholesterol within the norm. Doc asked what I was doing and I started to tell him low carb/Keto/Intermittent fasting and I could tell he wasn't receptive at all. He told me to go back to my standard American diet because Keto bad or something.

I expected the same treatment from my Dr since I started low carb eating in 8/2015. Been suprised how well it has been accepted by the medical community here. Not a single detrimental comment. Down 86 pounds and off blood pressure meds. Still take chlosterol meds. Blood sugar allways on the middle of normal.

When I was in high school I worked at Taco Bell. We made everything inside the store so the beans started out as raw hard pinto beans and we pressured cooked then mashed them. We cooked big 10 lb. bags of ground beef then drained the fat. We then took the fat out to the back and emptied it into a 55 gal drum. The drums were picked up by a rendering company.

Back then Taco Bell was real food and tasty too.

Sorry I didn't catch your post on SCA site. I've been out of it for about twenty years or so. I have up when too many people started taking it way too seriously.

I never really had a persona per se. It just depended on how much I weighed and who I could finagle into making garb for me. One time, I had the most beautiful houpelond. I loved it, but five pounds later, the zip wouldn't zip. My last set of garb was a long tunic and surplice. Until I quit selling jewelry at Renfaires a couple years back, I used to wear it there. It was light and cool and I could wear shorts and a few short under it. I never had a registered device or name, either. When I got around to it, the heralds were getting very stuffy about names and devices, and it wasn't worth the effort.

259 Granite is around 7 on the mohs hardness scale. Tough stuff, difficult to work with.

The ancient Egyptians were pretty much the masters of working with it. It's really quite remarkable. There seems to be only two camps on how they did it - the accepted wisdom is copper chisels and other primitive methods; OR, the nutbars say it was high tech/aliens/weirdo stuff.

271 I don't cook with "Lard" though Bacon grease is kinda like lard I guess. I prefer butter for eggs and hash browns. For hash browns, clarified butter is the way to go but I never bother and they turn out great.

Bacon grease is excellent as a substitute for butter or margarine in cookies, however.

That's true. I had this huge cowboy cut bone-in steak a couple weeks ago, there was no way to cook it over a fire/coals really, way too thick. I was camping. So I reverse seared it. Started out in a Dutch Oven on really low heat for about a half hour. Then got a fry pan as hot as I could get and seared a couple minutes on both sides with bacon grease as lube. It was fantastic!

299 Way back when I was just starting out in machine
shops, we'd mix some lard in with our cutting oil. It worked great for
tapping threads in holes and you'd rarely break a tap off inside when
you used it.
You didn't want to break a tap off inside a
threaded hole. Took forever to remove it and the foreman would remember
that forever. And by "forever" I mean "come time to pass out raises."

George O Smith, who wrote the Venus Equilateral stories for Astounding, was an electrical engineer who worked on developing radar fuses and other such items during WW2.

At one point they were building a specific fuse and the specs said to use beef tallow as a dope to keep the threads from binding. They had to go dance with food Ration board to get beef tallow, and it became such a problem they asked if they could plate with Cadmium instead, and they were told that Cadmium would absorb neutrons so they couldn't use it.
He said they never figured out what exactly they were building it for but they had suspicions later.

The XO wishes he had learned how to do a bit of the hand chiseling from some of the oldsters still around when he first started fifty years ago. These days, he mostly rearranges the computer generated stencils, then comes home and bitches at me about how nobody at the shop knows how to do anything the right way.

He was very concerned about losing his job when computers and MonuCAD started doing the stencil layouts and cutting he used to do, but it turned out they need him more than ever to clean up the computer's messes. There's a new gal running the computer these days, but she's not much better than the former computer guy. Oh, well.

Hey - why don't you mail some pics of those works to MisHum? Can't think of a better item for ONT photo fare (we send pics of our skeery gunzz to Weasel for the gun thread, for example).


As an early-war buff, I assume you are aware (probably know more about it than I) of the variety - no, confusion and chaos - of naval aircraft markings in the Pacific during that period. I had the impression there was no uniform scheme, and different carriers had different markings. Getting rid of that little red circle - which somehow wasn't the best symbol in that particular war and theater - was I think the first order of business.

I've got two very heavy and large Naval History books here, that you might be interested in.

I'm bringing 'em with me back to Galveston, but you can drop me a line if you might be interested in 'em.

One is a very large, very heavy, very thick, larger than "coffee table book" sized tome.

Might just be some new research material or other documentation of use in there for ya.

Other? Gilt edged large book on Submarines, WWI to the Present.

A lot of that - as I understand - was along the lines of 'Thank you sir, we'll get right on that" and was done when time and material permitted. The carriers were probably quicker to adopt new paint schemes than many of the land bases. But then, the SBD I have from Wasp in summer 1942 is in grey uppers over light grey underside, which was a camo pattern from about 1940-41.

*shrugs* Orders are given, and the field adjusts as they can.

352 1941 the US Navy went from the silver dope and chromate yellow to overall light gray with full squadron codes in white with US national insignia in four positions, the stars had the red dot.
October '41, Intermediate Blue was authorized over the Light Gray. White codes were still carried, but the air group number usually vanished. This lasted until about February.

Dana Bell notes that some carriers were issued with a blue top color that more closely matched the blue stain used on the flight decks. This might be the source of the dark blue painted on Spitfires launched by USS Wasp for the Malta runs.

April '42 larger US stars with red dots were ordered. Some stars remained small, as seen on VB-8 or missing as seen on VS-6 while others went over-sized. Stars in six positions was authorized. Along with red and white rudder stripes. Air groups started to transition to black fuselage codes.

May '42 the red dots and rudder stripes were ordered removed. Like all the other changes, these changes could only be done with time permitting. Mid May '42 when Hornet and Enterprise were rushing back to Pearl from failing to join the Coral Sea battle, some VT-8 TBDs still sported red dots.

June '42 all air groups seemed to be finally in compliance with the May directive.

If you go to a "you pull it" type yard, you should be able to get a complete door, with glass, for under a hundred bucks. Back in January, a buddy and I got two left side door shells for an '02 Ram 4-door for $130 in Phoenix. Absolutely rust-free. His son is delighted with them.

The glass alone shouldn't run more than 30 bucks. Look on Ewetoob for a video showing how to replace it. Usually not very difficult, but there may be some tricky/hidden fasteners.

410 Break the box and shed the nard;
Stop not now to count the cost;
Hither bring pearl, opal, sard;
Reck not what the poor have lost;
Upon Christ throw all away:
Know ye, this is Easter Day.

Build His church and deck His shrine,
Empty though it be on earth;
Ye have kept your choicest wine--
Let it flow for heavenly mirth;
Pluck the harp and breathe the horn:
Know ye not 'tis Easter morn?

Gather gladness from the skies;
Take a lesson from the ground;
Flowers do ope their heavenward eyes
And a Spring-time joy have found;
Earth throws Winter's robes away,
Decks herself for Easter Day.

Beauty now for ashes wear,
Perfumes for the garb of woe,
Chaplets for dishevelled hair,
Dances for sad footsteps slow;
Open wide your hearts that they
Let in joy this Easter Day.

Seek God's house in happy throng;
Crowded let His table be;
Mingle praises, prayer, and song,
Singing to the Trinity.
Henceforth let your souls always
Make each morn an Easter Day.

422 Early in the morning on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb. She saw that the stone had been moved away, so she ran off to Simon Peter, and the other disciple (the one Jesus loved) and told them, "The Lord has been taken from the tomb! We don't know where they have put him!" At that, Peter and the other disciple started out on the way to the tomb. They were running side by side, but then the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He did not enter, but bent down to peer in, and saw the wrappings lying on the ground. Presently, Simon Peter came along behind him and entered the tomb. He observed the wrappings on the ground, and saw the piece of cloth that had covered the head not lying with the wrappings, but rolled up in a place by itself. Then the disciple who had arrived first at the tomb went in. He saw and believed. (Remember, as yet they did not understand the scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.) With this, the disciples went back home.

426 Death for its goal, is not life's aim missed? Labours he well, that labours to bring doom about his ears? Death was never of God's fashioning; not for his pleasure does life cease to be; what meant his creation, but that all created things should have being? No breed has he created on earth but for its thriving; none carries in itself the seeds of its own destruction. Think not that mortality bears sway on earth; no end nor term is fixed to a life well lived. . . . It is the wicked that have brought death on themselves, by word and deed of their own; court death, and melt away in its embrace, keep tryst with it, and lay claim to its partnership.

460 Nor were they content with these false notions of God's nature; living in a world besieged by doubt, they misnamed its innumerable disorders a state of peace. Peace, amidst their rites of child-murder, their dark mysteries, their vigils consecrated to frenzy! Peace, while there is no respect for life, or for wedlock undefiled; always the murderous ambush, the jealous pangs of a husband betrayed! All is a welter of bloodshed and murder, theft and fraud, corruption and disloyalty, sedition and perjury; honest men are assailed, kindnesses forgotten, souls defiled, breeds confused, marriages unsettled; adultery reigns and wantonness. Name we all these, name we never the idols whose worship is the cause, the beginning and end, of all these! Their ecstasies are but raving, their prophecies are but lies; ill live their worshippers, and lightly forswear themselves. And no marvel; what hurt should they take from the oath falsely sworn, since all their faith is in dead gods? But indeed they shall pay both scores, idolaters that thought so ill of God, and perjurers that by their treason slighted all honour; not the power he swore by, but the justice that keeps watch over sinners, walks ever close on the heels of ill-doing.

--Wisdom 14:22-31
