The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

To this very moment slavery continues in parts of Africa and the Islamic world. Very little noise is made about it by those who denounce the slavery of the past in the West, because there is no money to be made denouncing it and no political advantages to be gained. Dr. Thomas Sowell


Quote II

Slavery was a gross violation of human rights. Justice demands that all participants in the trans-Atlantic slave trade make compensatory reparation payments to slaves. However, there is no way that Europeans could have captured millions of Africans. That means compensation would have to be paid by Africans and Arabs who captured and sold slaves to Europeans in addition to the people who bought and used slaves. Since slaves and slave traders and owners are no longer with us, compensation is beyond our reach and it's a matter that will have to be settled in hell or heaven. Dr. Walter Williams


Quote III

If respectable politicians are forbidden to raise certain subjects, the voters will turn to unrespectable ones. The people are telling their rulers something important here. The longer the ruling class - in Washington, London, Paris and elsewhere - refuse to listen, the worse it is going to be. Mark Steyn


Quote IV

"I strongly encourage the citizens of St. Joseph county to continue meeting peacefully and voice their concerns peacefully and not with acts of violence. We cannot solve violence with violence! What I am asking today is that we STOP the violence! STOP the shootings! Our community has suffered enough. The problem will only get better when law enforcement and our community work together." Saint Joseph County Sheriff Bill Redman


Quote V

Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them. George Orwell


Quote VI

Once real Americans elected Donald John Trump president, the monkeys really began throwing their bowel movements at the tourists. Don Surber

Some want to grow up and be professional athletes. Some may want to be firefighters. Others want to grow up and be astronauts. Not Philip Alston. He wanted to grow up to be a special type of bureaucrat. He grew up to be UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights.

The longer the title, the bullshit deepens.

The world is increasingly at risk of “climate apartheid”, where the rich pay to escape heat and hunger caused by the escalating climate crisis while the rest of the world suffers, a report from a UN human rights expert has said.

Philip Alston, UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, said the impacts of global heating are likely to undermine not only basic rights to life, water, food, and housing for hundreds of millions of people, but also democracy and the rule of law.

Alston is critical of the “patently inadequate” steps taken by the UN itself, countries, NGOs and businesses, saying they are “entirely disproportionate to the urgency and magnitude of the threat”. His report to the UN human rights council (HRC) concludes: “Human rights might not survive the coming upheaval.”

I think we can all agree that reading books is good for you. (Although I suspect there are a couple of contrarians here who will disagree) It seems there is never enough time to read what you would like to read. Techniques t help you read more.

Reading books can exercise your brain and even boost your emotional intelligence. Despite this, about a quarter of all Americans haven't read a book in the last year and our overall book-reading time is on the decline.

In the new year, it’s time to buck this trend. But how do you find the time to read full-length books—and why should you bother in the first place?

Should this be a major university course or a tech school course?

PHARMACY STUDENTS: Do you like weed? Want to earn your masters degree in marijuana?

The University of Maryland School of Pharmacy may be just the place for you!

News reports say that the school is launching the nation’s first master’s program to train students about the science and policies of medical marijuana.

Naughty. Naughty, naughty, naughty. Daimler diesels have illegal software.

Over the weekend, Germany's auto regulator told Daimler that it would have to recall 42,000 Mercedes-Benz diesel vehicles after the group discovered illegal software on the cars that would reduce the effectiveness of the emissions-control system.


BMW, Daimler, and VW colluded to prevent better emissions control tech, EU says
Daimler said Sunday night that it would take a one-time charge of hundreds of millions of euros against the upcoming quarter's earnings to deal with the new accusations, but it disputed the government regulator's determination that the software in question was illegal. According to the Wall Street Journal, Daimler plans to formally object to the claims.

Staying up late may be hurting your chance of fatherhood.

Men trying to have a baby could increase their chances of getting their partner pregnant if they go to bed before 10.30 at night.

Men with an early bedtime are almost four times more likely to have good-quality sperm, a study has found.

Scientists asked men what time they had typically gone to bed over the past month, and if a doctor had found them to have normal or low-quality sperm.

Those who went to bed before 10.30pm were almost four times more likely to have normal sperm than men whose bedtime was 11.30pm or later.

How messed up is the NRA? On Friday, popular firearms video impresario Hickok45 and his son John posted an announcement on their YouTube channel. In short, they’re terminating — at least for now — their relationship with the National Rifle Association.

The announcement came one day after the NRA filed suit against former president Oliver North and suspended the org’s number two man and NRA-ILA head, Chris Cox for allegedly participating in the attempted palace coup against EVP Wayne LaPierre. Those moves were apparently the last straws for Hickok45 and his son.

The NRA had been a significant sponsor of the Hickok45 brand and the they had long advocated that gun owners join the organization in support of gun rights. But as they two told their viewers . . .

Why would someone leave the profession she loves? It wasn't the money for this kindergarten teacher.

It takes guts to quit your job. But leaving behind your whole profession? Impossible without an overwhelming combination of soul-searching and disappointment. Recently, Jessica Gentry, 34, from Harrisonburg, Virginia, quit being a kindergarten teacher at Stone Spring Elementary School. Now, sick and tired of all the people assuming she did it for lousy pay, Jessica penned an emotional Facebook rant revealing the true reasons behind her difficult decision. And money wasn’t even on the list. Her sincere words have already received over 263K reactions and 800 comments, many of which are actively supporting Gentry and the new route she’s taking.

Vanuatu, a south Pacific Ocean nation, is banning disposable diapers to save the environment from plastics.

Parents will have to embrace the old-fashioned cloth diapering method. That's not a bad thing.

The Pacific island nation of Vanuatu has announced that it will ban disposable diapers. The ban is part of a nationwide effort to curb plastic pollution, which has overwhelmed the tiny country in recent years. With such limited land mass, it has no "away" where it can toss its garbage and forget about it. Vanuatu's is believed to be the first such ban on disposable diapers anywhere in the world.

Disposable diapers are made from a blend of plastic and wood pulp. Each one is used for a few hours, then tossed into a landfill, often encased in additional plastic, where it will linger for an estimated 200 to 500 years. A baby uses between five and eight thousand diapers prior to potty-training, and the U.S. alone generates 18 billion a year. That's a whole lot of feces-infused plastic waste. Yuck.

...the intersection between American history and fast food, its enduring popularity and how chains are changing to keep up with consumers.

Preferences (and pride) may vary among regional chains—whether it’s In-N-Out in the West, Culver’s in the Midwest or Chick-Fil-A in the South—but U.S. consumers remain fast food fanatics. A Gallup survey showed 80 percent of Americans eat at fast food chains at least once a month.

It doesn't appear the western world and the Muslim worlds are getting any closer philosophically.

A clear majority of the Arab world continues to believe that Israel is the main threat in the Middle East and North Africa, a comprehensive BBC poll of 11 Arab countries revealed on Monday.

The poll — which involved interviews with over 25,000 respondents in Egypt, Sudan, Lebanon, Jordan, the Palestinian territories, Yemen, Iraq, Morocco, Libya, Tunisia and Algeria — also demonstrated that a strict social conservatism prevailed throughout the region, exemplified by a violent hatred of homosexuality.

Opposition to women holding positions of power and influence, as well as sympathy for the practice of “honor killings” — the execution of female relatives for allegedly shaming their families — remains widespread as well.

The poll, conducted for the British broadcaster by the Arab Barometer research organization, showed that residents of the Palestinian territories were more resistant to liberal democratic values than are their neighbors in several respects

The Nissan Versa is no General Lee. Genius Award Winner.

LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. — A man was arrested for a hit and run crash involving some Hollywood-level elements.

Lee County deputies arrested 35-year-old Robert Foley Wednesday. Deputies say he crashed into an abandoned truck on 21st Street South in Lehigh Acres and then ran off.

Based on tire marks, deputies say Foley was driving westbound on 21st Street Southwest towards a large ditch. That is when an arrest report shows "based on the physical evidence it was apparent the Nissan Versa was traveling at such a great speed that it vaults/airborne and cleared the water canal/ditch in a fashion only to be described similar to what was depicted in the 'Dukes of Hazzard.'"

Self-Defense. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A devastating right hook sent robbery suspect Andre Young to the ground in Forest Park just after midnight.

The knockout punch, delivered by a store clerk, was captured by a security camera.

“He tried to jump over the counter, and he had a blade in his hands,” the clerk said during his 911 call. “I’ve got the blade in my hand right now.”

Detectives said the 52-year-old Young acted as if he were going to buy a can of Milwaukee’s Best beer when he revealed his true intentions.

“He’s still in here,” the clerk told a 911 dispatcher. “I had to knock him out. You need to get a trooper here now, because he’s in here, he’s in here all ****** up.”

Mr. Criminal is lucky. Damn lucky.

I find it noteworthy that the solutions to climate apartheid are universally such that the poor and impoverished must suffer more and live with a lower standard of living, while the rich can easily afford avoiding the inconvenience of the greater regulatory burden.

59 Good news! The Feds repealed the Obamacare penal... er, tax (sorry, Chief Justice Roberts)!

Unfortunately, a few of the states have decided to take measures into their own hands. California looks like it'll be one of the handful of states (so far) that intend to enact their own penal... er, tax... on those who don't have medical insurance. The bill has already passed the legislature. And Governor Newsome has apparently proposed similar legislation on his own. So I expect him to sign it without complaint.

No Republicans voted for it. One Democrat voted against it.

The penalty will not, of course, apply to people in this country illegally. But even this wasn't enough for one Democrat. State Senator Maria Elena Durazo (D) apparently complained that none of the funds received from this penal... er, tax... would be ear-marked for illegal aliens over the age of 65.

108 I've a more than passing interest in the Three Kingdoms era in China. It marked the end of the Han Dynasty (generally considered China's "golden era"), and was fictionalized in the novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms", which is considered to be one of the great novels of Chinese literature (and which also apparently makes much of what passes for American viewpoint advocacy look strictly amateur in comparison). It's also the subject of two video game franchises by Koei-Tecmo, one of which is the (in)famous Dynasty Warriors series.

It took Creative Assembly a while, but they finally got around to touching on the subject matter. Last month, they released Total War: Three Kingdoms, which is a combination of real-time battles and strategic empire building. Due to my interest in the era, I had to get it.

The inevitable problems have been interesting. First and foremost, some of the special abilities that certain rulers have appear to be doing a bit too spectacularly well when the computer is running the rulers in question. There are stories about Yuan Shao (one of the rulers in question) quite literally acquiring half of China as vassals over the course of a few turns. Alternately, Liu Bei (another of the rulers in question) can end up forcibly incorporating non-aligned territory at an alarming rate. But that's apparently not the worst of it.

As is the case with most recent Total War games, building your own dynasty is an important part of the game. The ruler that you start the game with won't be alive at the end of the game, even if he manages to avoid any unfortunate accidents suffered at the point of a sword. The games last longer than a human's life span. So having kids, getting your kids married, and watching those kids have heirs is kind of important. That, of course, requires that a man and a woman be married together so that the babies can start popping out. As is usual, there's no shortage of eligible males.

Eligible females, on the other hand...

Players have noticed a rather disturbing lack of single females in the game. Things are rather tight at the start. But they get downright ridiculous late in the game. One of the reasons for this is that the game is apparently producing a horribly lop-sided number of male children. And, in one of those moments of dark humor, there's reason to believe that the cause of this gender imbalance is one of Creative Assembly's sops to the SJW crowd.

In short, the game allows women to serve as generals just like men (despite the fact that this is horribly ahistorical, and that no army at the time would have accepted a woman as its commander). And there are reasons (which I won't get into) to believe that the steps CA took to bring this about is causing the game to generate a lot more male children than female children.

Heh.

115 The head of the Oregon state senate admitted that the cap-and-trade bill supported by Democrats doesn't have the votes, on the fifth day of a walkout by Republican state senators that denies the Democrats a quorum for a vote.

Now, this may just be a ruse to try to trick the Republicans to return to the state senate to get the bill passed (all bills not passed die on June 30th, under Oregon law), but the left-wingers in Oregon are pissed. It's fun to watch.

The cap and trade bill would have increased the price of gasoline by fifty cents now, by a couple of bucks in a couple of years, and would have doubled the price of heating your home in a few years, among its many other effects.

All the Republicans want is for the bill to be put up for a popular vote, but the Democrats refuse - the voters of Washington voted down a similar bill by a big margin last year, so it seems almost certain that the voters of Oregon would do the same thing.

Yes, the problem (whatever it is -- didn't click, don't care, not important) in his county may get better when his police department and his community work together. But "law enforcement" sees everyone else as the enemy, and law enforcement people -- local cops, state police, the FBI -- are shocked that people are starting to see them as the enemy in return.

that doesn't deserve a serious response, but this is one issue that always chaps the HELL out of me - the so-called "party of science" totally IGNORING science that has been well established for at least a century and a half, and it has to do with the south sea islands.

Ignore the issue of whether the ocean is really rising much at all, which is separate, and for the sake of argument assume it's rising. Charles Darwin *Himself* wrote a treatise over 150 years ago while in the South Pacific on the Beagle, and he wrote out a detailed explanation as to why the coral based atolls in the region (all of the islands we're talking about) would ALWAYS readjust their heights to maintain the same relative levels with respect to the sea. He pointed out that it had been happening for hundreds of thousands of years, and would continue to happen. Every scientific measurement made over the last 150 years has shown that Darwin's predictions were amazingly accurate.

and yet here come the Warmists with their bullshit, every time, "Oh The islands are sinking, the Islands are sinking!!!" No they are NOT you fucktards, go read some Charles Darwin if you want to know why.

Food Apartheid: The Silent Killer in the Black Community

But escaping food apartheid isn't easy. Many neighborhoods carry an invisible "white people only" label, and often it is these neighborhoods that have organic grocery stores and farmers' markets. Moving into a different neighborhood becomes a battle with landlords, who have money falling out of their ears, but still demand the first and last month's rent, and an additional month's rent as a security deposit.

If you want to trigger a revolt of left-wing mothers, suggest banning disposable diapers in a blue city.

Unfortunately, not even blue city politicians are dumb enough to suggest this - perhaps we should set up some astroturf environmental organizations to push this.

Imagine telling utterly "woke" mothers in Portland they can only use cloth diapers - the results would be hilarious.

I played the hell out of one of those old games. I just remember Lu Bu having a 100 rating so the first thing you did was find him and start bribing him until he defected to your side.

---------------------

That was almost certainly one of the games in Koei-Tecmo's *other* Three Kingdoms franchise. It's called, appropriately enough, "Romance of the Three Kingdoms".


I started playing one of the early games in that series quite a while back. But I didn't know anything about the era then, and the game pretty much tossed me in with no background as to what was going on. So I had no idea about the identities of any of the people who I was dealing with. I quit pretty quickly after starting it up.

More recently, the sister strategy game series - Nobunaga's Ambition - has a "fulfill these objectives, and we'll advance the timeline with cutscenes" thing going for it. So you can play along and get a dramatized version of some of the events of the Japanese Sengoku Jidai (which is what that game covers). I'm guessing that RotK does the same for the Three Kingdoms era (and in a much more historically accurate fashion than Dynasty Warriors). But I haven't taken the time to confirm that suspicion.

But escaping food apartheid isn't easy. Many neighborhoods carry an invisible "white people only" label, and often it is these neighborhoods that have organic grocery stores and farmers' markets.

-----------------

Well why don't they just put organic grocery stores and farmers markets in the non-white people only communities?

Oh, right. When they do that, they get attacked for "gentrifying" the community.

Or they get mobbed by shakedown artists until they decide to not build after all, as was famously the case with that one Trader Joe's market.

210 Alston graduated from the University of Melbourne with an LL.B.(Hons.) in 1972 and an LL.M. in 1976 and from the University of California at Berkeley School of Law.

His brother is the former Australian federal Cabinet minister and High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Richard Alston.


Of course. I've said that Washington DC is more inbred than a West Virginia trailer camp, but the UN is probably more inbred than a Pakistani family reunion.

In human rights law, Alston has held a range of senior UN appointments for over two decades

I wonder what his cumulative expense account bill is at this point. Bets that it's over a million bucks? Two million?

And, of course,

]In 2017 the United Nations undertook an investigation on the effects of systemic poverty in the United States. In a 29 November 2017 Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) statement, Alston observed, "Some might ask why a UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights would visit a country as rich as the United States. But despite great wealth in the US, there also exists great poverty and inequality...[He will] focus on how poverty affects the civil and political rights of people living within the US, given the United States' consistent emphasis on the importance it attaches to these rights in its foreign policy...[He will investigate] the "criminal justice system, welfare and healthcare, barriers to political participation, homelessness, and basic social rights such as the right to social protection, housing, water and sanitation.

Weird - Trump gets elected, and all of a sudden the UN notices that there is poverty in the United States. (Even if "poor people" in the US are better off than most of the world's population.)

A landmark battle in the war on drugs ended Tuesday, and a new approach to address racial inequities began, as Gov. J.B. Pritzker acted to legalize marijuana in Illinois effective Jan. 1, 2020.

The most unusual and far-reaching aspect of the bill is its "social equity" component. It calls for 25% of tax money for grants to fund neighborhood improvement projects in poor minority areas. Proposals are to be chosen by a board led by Lt. Gov. Julianna Stratton.

The most unusual and far-reaching aspect of the bill is its "social equity" component. It calls for 25% of tax money for grants to fund neighborhood improvement projects in poor minority areas. Proposals are to be chosen by a board led by Lt. Gov. Julianna Stratton.

The state will also provide lower licensing fees, low-interest loans and preference in awarding licenses to social equity applicants, defined as those from areas most affected by the war on drugs, or having criminal records eligible for expungement.

"What we are doing here is about reparations," state Rep. Jehan Gordon-Booth, a Democrat from Peoria, said. "Black and brown people have been put at the very center of this policy."

273 "What we are doing here is about reparations," state Rep. Jehan Gordon-Booth, a Democrat from Peoria

The hilarious thing is that investing in a small-scale legal marijuana business is financially disastrous - marijuana growers are going out of business left and right in Oregon because prices are so low. A couple of large companies are buying up distressed Oregon marijuana retail stores that are unable to compete, due to the excessive number of stores.

Giving black people special incentives to get into the marijuana business in 2019 is like giving black people special incentives to buy houses in 2007.

299 Giving black people special incentives to get into the marijuana business in 2019 is like giving black people special incentives to buy houses in 2007.

Because leftists don't understand economics, they think that a marijuana business is a magical license to print money.

It's an agricultural crop. Starting a storefront marijuana store requires little capital, so tons of people are going to get into that business.

People try to compare "boutique" Oregon marijuana farms to "boutique" Oregon wineries, but ignore that "boutique" Oregon wineries don't actually make money - they are run as hobby businesses by rich people.

I believe you.


Several years ago, Virginia's Democrats decided that they needed to have a meeting to decide how to "connect" to the rural communities of western Virginia. Their idea of going to the rural area was to have the meeting in Roanoke City at a luxury hotel located in the middle of the city. They could have gone about 45 minute drive south and had it in Martinsville, 45 minute drive west and had it in Radford, but they chose to have it at a hotel that was 5 minutes from the largest airport west of Richmond.



Plus, those other places didn't have luxury hotels even though there are hotels in those places with plenty of meeting rooms to have the confab.

No I'm a historian and author for being inclusive but do you think this guy has a freaking agenda. This is where the left has infiltrated everything in our culture and it needs to be fought. I'll bet you if you go to his little Museum America is probably the worst country in the world. In fact we probably invented slavery. What a load of crap.

by the tsunami, the UN flew a special team into Jakarta, which was put

One of the high schools in Richland, Washington is nicknamed "The Bombers" - their school symbol used to be a nuclear explosion, but now they have something more pacific as a symbol.

427 Recall when truly around 29 in DC going to some brunch or something with World Bank people my own age. There was endless talk of going "on mission" - they actually had to stay in 5-star hotels, if available. [that's besides their tax-net salaries - ya know, the kind a former secTreasury actually claimed to not understand]


Now - there's no point in hobbling your own assistance activity by having your staff living in squalor or danger if it's avoidable - but it's one of those judgement/context things, and WB was renowned for cushy options in all cases, which kinda sorta absolutely sits poorly with their mission.


My record reimbursement form for a hotel was: 47 cents a night [at rate of exchange for worthless temporary local currency during a civil war]. Only non-refugee in the place. But quite good, great opportunity to talk with the sort of people we were aiming to help, plus good fun otherwise.


The bombed-out former Soviet army barracks, in January, at elevation, in another nearby war zone was free - and worth every cent. But also fun. And, well, the only option to being outside [tho it was kinda outside, place was laid open with serious damage].

What are we to do? Make right the enslavement of black Africans up until 1808? Nothing can make that right. The crime was excessive, and the victims are long dead.

Can anything make the use of their children as inborn slaves right? No, it can't. Once again, the people who committed the excesses are dead, and so are their victims.

All we can do is look back to the point where the enormity ended, and it's an important one, because an entire huge and mighty nation squandered ALL of its youth, and ALL of it's treasure defeating this, and another 150 years sorting out the consequences.

How can we settle this through cash payments, or treaties with foreign nations like Liberia, or Maoist self-denunciation sessions at home?

451 For the student of World War II, there is that one photo and a bit of datum that surfaces to expand one's knowledge base tremendously.

The plane in the background probably started out as a B-25D-25-NA made in Kansas City. Then it was assigned to the war in the Pacific. Hence the plane's defensive firepower was upgraded to D2 standards by installing two waist hatches with .50cal machine guns and a tail gunner station with a single .50cal on a jeep spring under new glazing.

Then to make things even more unique, on the waist position we can see in this photo, it has been mostly covered over leaving only a small square opening. Why? Probably will forever remain unknown the answer.

And finally lets look at the nose. Unlike a vast majority of B-25Ds converted into strafing planes, this Mitchell has received one of the North American B-25J gun nose conversion kits that allowed units in the field to turn any glass nosed Mitchell into an aerial buzz-saw with eight .50s.

P.S. The D2 waist hatches are not like the ones later found on the H and J models. For one they are not staggered. And the top and bottom metal fairings are symmetrical in size.

They had some guy, who looked like a penis-sipper, haughtily explaining that the 1970 "Soccer War" between Honduras and El Salvador was really not about soccer at all, but something else.

One of the pics they showed was a crew loading bombs onto a bright aluminum twin-engined tail dragger bomber, with some sort of nose art on it. Would that be an A-26? I think it had inline engines in the nacelles, not radials.

470 About prestige of working for UN or int'l orgs [or, esp., the Americans] in many places with foreign assistance]: the former USSR was obviously a weird different case for relief organizations - many of which got their start in Europe after WWII [Concerned Americans for Remittances to Europe - CARE, for example], had not done relief work in a northern hemisphere/former/quasi-developed context for generations.


And you had the very weird educational situation - in technical fields, extremely well educated people whose lives - amidst the collapsed Soviet economy - depended on being ..... a driver or warehouse manager for an American or other relief outfit.


Thus, one operation we funded, run by a very competent Indian engineer, had a driver. Indian guy told me his driver got more email than he did - and from leading scientists from around the world. He ended up giving the guy leave to travel to London - to present a paper on black holes. Guy was an astrophysicist of int'l note. NGOs used to joke about whether they should require 1, or 2, doctorates for warehouse manager positions.

Supposedly there's a Mynah Birds album in the can that's never been released.

The suspect reportedly displayed a handgun and demanded that the driver exit his vehicle. After the victim got out of the vehicle, the suspect fled the area traveling eastbound towards Olio Road.

According to police, the suspect was initially a passenger in a black GMC full-size SUV, which followed the van as it fled the scene.

When piggies die, they are transferred into trees. Wars erupt
and that causes the piggies to kill each other and turn into
more trees. Then peace, and more piggies.

I don't know how the CAF Mustangs were equipped or restricted in the radio compartment.

NVAF MiGs were reputed to NOT have "Guard" crystals installed in their radio sets, just TO prevent any comms with the hated Yankees.

And "lowering landing gear" and "weaving" are great surrender maneuvers.

IF the closing F8-U Crusader drops below supersonic in time to determine anything more than the Cuban Air Force livery before delivering ordnance.

The Crusader's "Master Arm" switch would've been "hot", a full 20 miles out, before visual range.

Same applies to any given interceptor of the early '60s.

And had it been a Convair F-102?

A few years too early to have maybe been GWB's first and only "kill" in the TX Air National Guard.

626 Well, I got the flatdeck off the 1.5 ton truck today. With all the bolts removed, I just put the loader bucket under one edge, and lifted. Got it up to about 60 degrees, and ran out of reach on the loader. Tried pushing it the rest of the way by hand; no dice. Part of the deck understructure was hung up on the outside dually. But I backed the tractor away, and it stayed put, so I approached it from another angle so that the truck's rear wheels did not get in my way, and gave it another push. A nice big kerflop! resulted.

Drove the truck away. It sure does bounce a bit with no weight on the ass end.

Then I used the tractor to push the deck up close to the shop so I could reach it with air lines and electrical cords. Got a bunch of extraneous steel off the bottom side. I am going to have to make a 92" torch cut through 5/16" steel plate to trim the back end of it down. I can just see dollar bills taking wings, with me burning all that sweet oxy and acetylene.

The stripped-down truck deck will become an entry ramp for the west-side vehicle door into my shop, which has gone without for years. Should be plenty strong enough to support cars and pickups. The high side will rest on a 6X6 pressure-treated timber, and the low side will rest in a shallow trench to make the low edge flush with the ground. I will drive some long metal stakes through the stake pockets to pin it to the ground.

Poured concrete ramps would be nice, but they cost real money.

632 @426 One of the high schools in Richland, Washington is nicknamed "The Bombers" - their school symbol used to be a nuclear explosion, but now they have something more pacific as a symbol. (The plutonium for the Nagasaki bomb was produced in the nuclear reactors on the Hanford nuclear reservation nearby.)

I think I've mentioned this before, but I've got one of the old school shirts with the mushroom cloud logo. I had a student I knew get one for me when I was up there for a short period of time. It's tucked away in a drawer and doesn't get worn because -

1.) It was a bit small even when I got it, and
2.) Wearing it would eventually cause it to become, well, worn out.

633 Sorry Jim, I knew that, don't know why I said you were a native Texan, although the Cali you grew up in is just a distant memory. I am out of here, good night horde, I'd still like to know what to do with all these single-use cameras though, none of them contain porn as far as I know, just pictures of my kids doing the great things that kids do.

Search on-line for photo processing labs. There are a few labs out there that can still do now-obsolete size films, like 110.

If the cameras were never stored in a very hot place, the film may still be OK, although some color degradation can be expected.

636 @ Debby Doberman

No apology needed, ma'am.

I'll see what I can do in research as to your single use cameras.

There are still many places processing C-41 process films, which is what your cameras would've been using.

659 While 'The Concert For Bangladesh' is a good triple live album, with a variety of artists, THE best triple live album, hands down, is 'YESSONGS'. Another very good triple live album is The Band's 'The Last Waltz'. The latter two were also made into movies which played many a midnight showing.

Grand Funk's double album 'Live' stands the test of time rock-wise. I don't think they added the 'Railroad' to their name yet on that album. For a three-man band, they sure could crank it to twelve.

My personal favorite double live album is Ten Years After's 'Recorded Live'. Alvin Lee gets no love anymore.

Every pedant, every demagogue, every cynic, every hypocrite, every troublemaker, and, I am sorry to say, some trolls of an entirely different character, will try to downgrade the Horde even to the extent of challenging the masters of mockery and ridicule.

But these are some of the things they do. They show their basic character. They mold you for your future roles as the custodians of Ace's defense. They make you strong enough to know when you are weak, and brave enough to face yourself when you are afraid.

663 Odd question: when was the last time there was a ticker-tape parade and we're they still using stock tickets then? Did they have to make ticker tape up to throw out the windows?

Posted by: Aetius451AD Work Phone at June 26, 2019 02:12 AM (jQ4fD)


I was working on lower Broadway when Mayor 'I Love Tennis' Dinkins held a ticker-tape parade for that commie fuck, Nelson Mandela, back in June, 1990. What I remember about the 'ticker-tape' was that it wasn't. What people were throwing out of office windows (mostly old buildings where one could actually open a window, like my office on the 21st floor) was the big green, lined computer paper that the large printers used at the time, the kind with the form-feed holes on the sides. Many a 'thwump!' was heard on the sidewalks as stacks of that stuff was hurled out of windows, with many thinking the paper would unravel; it didn't.

Bullsh*t. The dot govs released a study a few years back and half the population is functionally illiterate. There's no way "a quarter" haven't read a book in the last year. I'd put it at more like 60% of the country.

*Maybe* they mean 1/4 of people who can read but didn't want to say it because that would draw attention to how lots of teachers and all the (D)s have just been passing students and collecting paychecks and pensions for the last 50 years.

We are now on the third installation of the neighbor's halogen security light across the road. Each time, the light has moved farther away, thank dog.

I read recently that full-time security lights make no difference in the likelihood of being burgled and can in fact make it easier for a burglar. Anyone who wants to burgle this place will have his way nicely lit.

His appearance is just meant to keep the narrative alive.

I'm sure the GOP members of the committee will ask wonderfully pertinent questions, especially Jim Jordan, that Mueller will either neglect to answer or simply state that he can't comment on an ongoing investigation.

716 I get that they use insurance claims to rank Baltimore so poorly, but having driven through there, Houston, and Orlando, my anecdotal sense tells me they're maybe in the top ten but nowhere near the actual worst.

Orlando is horrible. Any space and people will fill it, and people will go from the far left lane to the far right lane (over four or five lanes) in order to gain a car length one spot ahead of where they were, during rush hour traffic when folks are moving but no one is going anywhere anyway.

I think the teacher quitting this is a big setup. I see time and other mags have stories on how poor teachers are. But every time you take teachers per hour pay you find out that they are right there with others. I think the CON Ed rules that force them to get their next 2 or 3 degrees then show on paper that they are not earning what other are with that 2 or 3rd degree when the reality is that 2 or 3rd CON Ed degree is worthless unless you leave the class and go to admin.

The ancient Greeks recommend against it their Play "Assemblywomen" where the Women take over and declare all property communal, and declare it illegal for the men to seek favor with beautiful women, unless they first give the ugly women a plow first.

Separate raises, separate retirement, etc., and the only employees I know of that can stay in the same job their entire lives, never advance, do the exact same thing year after year (often getting worse with age), and still double or treble their salary and retire at 55 on 100K/year with full medical.

The bubble burst and they were in the position to buy a really nice home that they could afford, and one they could live in for the rest of their lives.

Except the government kept the people who couldn't afford their expensive homes in their expensive homes, rewarding their bad decisions, and that young couple got to keep looking at decent but still starter homes that they would move out of in ten years.

I recall one night after work I rode by his trailer on my way home,saw a crowd there celebrating his graduation from College and stopped in to say Howdy, they said Spike was out in the next door neighbors cow pasture I grabbed my flashlight and walked out to see, there he was surrounded by about twenty cows, on all fours puking into a cow pie and looking for Magic Mushrooms.I said Spike that's cow poo! he kept eating what he thought was mushrooms and said thanks for the sun man I needed that.He is dead now, of obvious reasons, died alone in his Mom's old house, no power, water or heat.I think the Colleges plan is flawed.
