The Saturday Night Joke

A Southern lady was visiting an acquaintance, and the acquaintance was taking great delight in showing off her many treasures.

“Why, this grand house was given to me by my husband as a wedding gift.”

Lady: “How nice.”

“And that Mercedes out front, that was an anniversary gift from my husband.”

Lady: “How nice.”

“And this 5-carat diamond ring, that was given to me by my husband when our first child was born.”

Lady: “How nice.”

“And these emerald and diamond earrings were a gift from my husband when our second child was born.”

Lady: “How nice.”

“And what did your husband give you?”

Lady: “Why, he gave me etiquette lessons, so I could learn to say ‘how nice,’ instead of ‘fuck you’.”H/T Legally Sufficient

Thomas Edison Invented A Supernatural ‘Telephone’ That Still Stumps Scientists Today"

You and a few friends decide to make the evening a little extra spooky by pulling out a Ouija board and trying to “contact the dead.” Your hands move as the planchette glides across the board, slowly spelling out… your name! You cry out in fright, but your friends burst out laughing: it was all just a trick. You begin laughing too, red-faced for having fallen for it — after all, only kids believe in ghosts… right?

Believe it or not, two of history’s brightest minds were actually dedicated ghost hunters, convinced of the presence of specters within our physical world. To that end, these men built tools to contact such spirits — and the messages that returned from the other side are enough to make anyone’s hair stand on end.

Move over Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., Le Louvre, Paris, France andt he Acropolis Museum, Athens. Now there is the Muff Busters.

In a bright indoor space in Camden’s Stables Market, a giant tampon is flanked by giant menstrual cups. Illustrations of female genitalia are dotted around the walls and some underwear is in a glass case.

This is the world’s first vagina museum dedicated to gynaecological anatomy, which opens this weekend in north-west London.

The museum exists thanks to a public fundraising drive, with more than 1,000 people collectively donating almost £50,000. The director, Florence Schechter, says her motivation behind setting up the space was simple. “I discovered there was a penis museum in Iceland but no vagina equivalent anywhere else so I decided to make one,” she says.

Do you know someone who is young and thinking about college? Here is your oppurtunity to help them out.

As tuition costs soar, more students and their families are asking themselves if college is still worth it.

Some experts say the value of a bachelor’s degree is fading. Starting salaries for new college graduates have grown less than 1% over the past two years, remaining at around $50,000.

Worse yet: A decade after leaving school, more than 1 in 5 graduates are working in a job that doesn’t even require a degree.

The case began Oct. 15 at the St. Lucie County jail as a 33-year-old Vero Beach woman was in the facility’s booking/intake area, an affidavit states.

Asked whether she had drugs or contraband, the woman said, “No.”

Thanks, MisHum, for the ONT!!

MIL Update:

Mom's doing much better, we found a terrific Assisted Living facility nearby, and spent today beginning to move some of her stuff there (it's essentially a studio apartment, talk about downsizing!). We'll finish tomorrow, and she moves in Tuesday.

This is cool: They're having a big Thanksgiving Fest/Dinner Tuesday night, and we're all going to be there with her (and 200 other folks). Should be a great way to immerse her in the new digs.

She thinks it's temporary, and it *may* be, but likely not. So we shall see. One good thing is that one of her former neighbors is also a resident, so she goes in with at least one person she knows and likes.

Posted by: Adriane the Delicate Stomach Critic ...


I'm not a fan of those huge burgers. They're too difficult to eat. The thrill is all in looking at it. Then you try to bite into it and the layers won't all fit in your mouth. Then parts slide out and everything runs down your wrist. Also, there's so much extra junk you can't taste the beef.

Won't get tricked into buying one of those again.

Sigh.

They already have an answer for this. I've heard it many times ...
"Whites were able to develop these technologies with the wealth and free time afforded by their enslavement and exploitation of colonized populations and lands, who'd have done it independently, failing their oppression by Big White."

This is their "logic" when presented with the flipside of "cultural appropriation."

93 Interesting Tweet from a Portland leftist:

the warren/sanders sniping is so so so so so so so so exhausting please don't bring that onto my timeline and instead start figuring out how to make sure the party frontrunner Joe Biden doesn't win the nomination and how we are gonna tackle climate change please and thank you

Hadn't thought about it much, but there is an ongoing civil war on the Left.

Bernie is a full-on Commie - when he talks about there being too many brands of deodorant and jailing fossil fuel executives, everyone thinks he means exactly what he says.

Warren? Even though Wall Street now says they won't contribute to the Democrats; if Warren looks like the nominee, they'll cut a deal with Warren. After all, she had no problem representing big companies in asbestos litigation. Warren is already backing away from Medicare for All, initially promising just a "public option" (I think that's already called Medicaid).

So Bernie gets the True Believers, Warren gets the academic class (a major part of the Democratic base), along with the fanatic feminists who are convinced that Hillary Wuz Robbed and will never support a male presidential candidate until a women has been elected to the White House.

And both groups hate Biden as much as they hate each other - it would be just incredibly dispiriting to them that just as the Hard Left has captured the Democratic Party, that a "moderate" retread like Biden would be the nominee.

So, this amplifies my support for Biden as the Democratic nominee - I think that he's not physically capable of running a general election campaign, but it will also kill the enthusiasm level among the people who are usually the foot soldiers in a Democratic race.

This is a pretty conservative state - so those issues mostly revolve around the corrupt votes in and around New Orleans (very much Democrat strong holds) and Baton Rouge - but it looks like those precincts are mostly in now so not enough to cheating catch up if the rural parishes in the north are the ones outstanding - which looks to be the case.

Of course a lot of the pre-1900 history timelines feature attempts to redo the Civil War. One timeline has the US losing the War of 1812 and Britain maintaining a prescence in the continental present day US well into the mid-19th century, with some interesting consequences. Another timeline has Joseph Smith, the Mormon prophet, being elected prez in 1844 after renouncing polygamy and embracing abolitionism (he did IRL consider running for POTUS but got killed before he could do so). Smith's election ends up essentially starting the Civil War 16 years early and blending it with the Mexican War....

And Trump didn't just decide to run. He was thinking about it for 30 years. And his successful TV show was critical to getting the rest of America, outside of NY, to get to know him and get familiar with him.

His show was ultimately the biggest reason he started on his roll in the Repub primary.

Everyone already "knew" him.

Others who try to run don't have this advantage.

I don't play lotto very often. But whenever I do, and check the numbers (usually a couple weeks later, because I don't remember until I find the ticket in my wallet) it's always zero numbers matching.

Which is weird because the website checks the ninety previous drawings... you'd think because they're two digit numbers, at least ONE would come up from time to time in ninety draws of five numbers.

The fact that it never has happened beggars belief. I have some kind of luck.

from GP:

In her opening statement Yovanovitch also denied pressuring former Ukrainian prosecutor Lutsenko not to investigate anti-corruption individuals or groups.



Marie Yovanovitch: As for events during my tenure in the Ukraine, I want to reiterate first the allegation that I disseminated a do not prosecute list was a fabrication. Mr. Lutshenko, the former Ukrainian prosecutor general who made that allegation has acknowledged that that list never existed.

Lou Dobbs: Oooh, not quite! Not quite! As investigative journalist John Solomon and The New York Times have both reported Lutsenko denies that he ever retracted that allegation.

a few things about this.

Sawant the dot Indian socialist was down 54% - 46% after the vote count was finished.

Ahh! But WA is a vote by mail state, and as long as a postmark on the day of voting was on the envelope, it counts. Even if it takes nearly a week to get them all in.

Odd, why did it take up to 5 days to get the local votes from a local election arrive to be counted? We will just leave that one to ponder on it's own.

But what is well known is that there is an ability to get a postmark of the day very late into the evening if you drive to a certain post office and drop it off. It does not show the time, only the day.

And Savant caught up and passed her opponent and won going away.

This is what a corrupt voting system looks like.


Amazon last year responded to the Savant-Commie proposed head tax by canceling an option on a new downtown Seattle skyscraper lease, and getting over 3 million sq. ft. of office space across the lake in Bellevue. They have since signed on to a big lease in what will be the largest skyscraper ever in Bellevue, going up now.

Last time i talked politics with my girlfriend, she finally asked me why i support President Trump. I told her I found his personality to be abrasive,as she does (she really thinks Trump is a terrible human being) but the policies he has supported and implemented have been great for the economy. That brought her up short, and the conversation turned to other topics shortly after that.

I've not heard her talk about the Mueller investigation or impeachment. The only thing she's had to say about the President is that she doesn't like him. I hope that's a sign that she, like many others, isn't believing the BS the opposition is shoveling.

416 Amazon last year responded to the Savant-Commie proposed head tax by canceling an option on a new downtown Seattle skyscraper lease, and getting over 3 million sq. ft. of office space across the lake in Bellevue.

Checking Wikipedia, Amazon was actually founded in Bellevue, which I did not know.

Bezos located Amazon in Seattle because of Microsoft's talent pool - I'm sure in the mid-1990's, being located in Seattle and not the burbs was a major selling point in recruiting tech nerds away from Uncle Bill.

Now, it's a problem. Couldn't happen to a nicer person than Bezos.

Bezos and wife #1 that he just divorced, drove out from NY and their first house was in Bellevue. He literally started Amazon out of his garage.

But the first big corporate office was the big yellow building on the hill in Seattle, overlooking the current T-Mobile and Clink stadiums. Originally that was the VA hospital for Western Wash, empty, and Bezos remodeled it and Amazon started there.

While I am mixed on Bezos overall, he has spent a hell of a lot of money around here, benefiting many thousands of people. Gotta give him props when props are due.

507 Losing in KY and LA sucks. The president put his weight behind this. of the handful of states that have actually moved right over the last couple of decacdes, LA and KY are on that list.

I don't know the details or personalities. But someone at the RNC needs to figure out what is going on. My personal opinion is a percentage is on Trump's style at times and the rest on on a scorched earth media that is getting results. Yes, they have destroyed their credibility but their hair on fire inanity does get results. Many want to avoid conflict and are willing to give up their principles if they had them in the first place. The biggest mistake people make imo is believing just because the media beclowns itself that it doesn't have an effect.

Conservatives should have come on in force to defend the president, Rispone notwithstanding. A lot of people who are not political junkies just don't care enough until it impacts them personally and they are told why it impacts them personally. What other reason can their be? And yes, there is cheating too.

521 While as valuable as the WWII U.S. silver nickels, I understand that the pre-1982 Canadian nickels (which were, in fact, made of nearly pure nickel) are also worth considerably more than face value if you can find them.
The Canadians went to cupro-nickel for a while (like our "nickels") but apparently they're now nickel-plated steel.
Intrinsic value: close to zero, like our zinc "pennies".

Steve Wozniak (the "other" Apple guy) used to buy uncut sheets of $2 bills from the mint and have a print shop cut them into multi-bill squares, perforate them, and make them into pads, so he could tear them off for tips or whatever.


It freaked the hell out of people, and at one time resulted in him talking to the Secret Service in Vegas.

It is amazing (and saddening) what public libraries give away or sell (50 cent donation).

Tome Wolfe's "A Man in Full" kept me occupied for a long transatlanic flight. 50 cents.

Contrast that with Houston's Down Low Mayor, who is all too familiar with the value of a "Three Dollar Bill."

I have a few $2 bills in my wallet, and once in a while like to mess with young cashiers.

I have had more than one of them tell me it is fake and they won't accept it.

I have them call their manager. One time, the manager agreed. I had a talk with him, pulling out other denominations to compare. He finally accepted it.

I only do that if the cashier is being a jerk and I have time on my hands.

585 Pennies were steel (43) Nickles were silver, if I remember correctly

Posted by: Some rat in the swamp at November 17, 2019 12:45 AM (LOq4H)


1943 pennies were mostly zinc as copper was needed for the war effort. The few steel pennies made are worth a bit of money.

My brother was born in '43 and kept a glass piggy bank full of the zinc pennies. Years later, the pennies had coalesced into one big blob of zinc.

586 Someone mentioned silver certificates above. My Pappaw carried a silver certificate in WWII. On his way home, he was going to throw it at the feet of the Statue of Liberty. They came back a different way from Europe though, so he kept it. Put it in a portrait of his enlistment photo. Stayed there for 60 years, untouched.

My parents have the portrait now (my uncle got the P-38 and SS knife- which has the tip broken off because my grandfather used it to pry something loose on the car, he kept it in the garage tool box for 40 years, kind of showed what that one was worth to him.)

The certificate is not in great shape from what I can tell. My guess is it was well used before it even went into my Pappaw's wallet, let alone when it went into the picture frame 70 years ago.

589 The HBO movie Flashpoint, with Kris Kristofferson has a minor plot point dealing with silver certificates. Kris has to go to a coin and currency dealer to figure out if the stash of money he found was legal tender. He didn't know what Silver Certificates were and if they were still legal tender.
BTW, I thought it was a fun movie. It was the Lone Wolf Mcquade era and genre so it wasn't exactly great. It would be problematic today just because they were Border Patrol. But everything that came before is problematic in this silly age. The funny thing is most of the problematic movies were made by libs, staring libs, trying to make a liberal point.

592 Counterpoint - The failure of N. or S. American cultures to develop the wheel, or smelt metals.

Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at November 16, 2019 10:27 PM (xSo9G)


Even moreso, the Chinese with a millennia of smelting bronze, casting Iron, and developing and using gunpowder, as well as willing tutelage by the Jesuits in Macao on how to cast cannon, were still using cannon at the beginning of the Boxer rebellion that Sir Francis Drake would have considered a bit old fashioned.

Most traditional societies reject and resist technological change because it will act to overturn the society and all its prerogatives to its elites. Such a change will also destroy the traditional worldview and generally -- at least from the starting point of adapting change -- will not show any advantage to be created to offset the chaos it causes.

Europe found technological change and the willingness to upend the various cultures in pursuit of those technologies from a process of dislocation from various plagues, discrediting of the traditional cultural leaders, hybridization of technologies (like shipbuilding) from prolonged contact and trade, and finally from the increasing military demands for better weapons to continue wars for dominance, which in part were made possible by wealth from the new world.
Further, instead of being slotted away, each new technological innovation was used and improved upon, with each iteration speeding up the next step.

China, Africa, and the Turks were not willing to accept these changes in full, and did not build on them as was done in Europe.

He said there are all kinds of coins in there in secret compartments that you will never find unless you destroy the cabinet. When he was young (very late 1800's) there was a tinker that came around to the farm on a horse drawn wagon every so often and Uncle would give him paper money for the tinker to go to the Philly Mint and buy $20 gold pieces to be given back to my Uncle on one of the return trips.

When he died, we did as he asked. We must have pulled out 40-50 gold pieces from the early 1900's and loads of other things.

He was a hell of a guy.

No, not really. Generally that what the original tech was developed for, and in the rest of the world, that is what it would continue to be used for.

however, the same tech to cast iron cannon, also can be used to cast pots, and pulleys, and gears, and wagon trucks and rails and then finally be used, along with the tech developed to make draft furnaces in the beginning, to power trip hammers, spinning and weaving machines, pumps, and eventually steam engines. Each step creates more invention and technology, and greater use of power and greater productivity which creates greater opportunities to figure what else you can do.

Traditional societies understand that most things fail, and that time wasted in a marginally subsistance society is effort lost. Better to keep to what you know, the cobbler sticking to his last sort of situation. A more modern society understands there are huge profit waiting for anyone willing to reach for it. But it is not obvious until the idea becomes embedded into a society, and there is enough proof that success will payoff, if it works.

618 When I bar tended back in the 80's, I used to get quite a few $2.00 silver certificates and I would always buy them from the register. One night I picked up a $5.00 depression era bill. It was drawn on the Bank of Hebron Ohio, had a red seal, and a lot of the lettering was brown. I would still have it if my sister hadn't spent all of my silver certificates and that five dollar bill while I was out over the road because she was broke. She also cashed in about three hundred dollars worth of change, two custom made pool cues, a 410 shotgun, a nickel plated Ruger .38 revolver, a Ruger 10/22 rifle, a nice cassette deck, and some of my clothes. Told me they were all stolen. I went to call the cops on the guns, and she admitted that she sold them all. I confiscated her car and made her sign over the title. There was no getting any of it back. After 30 years, I'm still kind of pissed at her for ripping me off.

649 My friend was at his car dealership yesterday. Some guy was talking up impeachment. My friend asked him nicely what crime Trump had committed? No answer. It finally came out that the only reason he should be impeached was that "I didn't vote for him."

650 If somehow this impeachment isn't seen for what it is by the public I think we are done. Might be anyway, just taking a long time to get there as I think we are broke as a country by Leftism.

I cheated. When we had the deck built, I had a NG connector put in. I can walk out, start it up, go back in for 15 minutes, and start grilling. I just need a path shoveled from the door to the grill. About 10 feet

656 I used to grill out all winter. On a charcoal grill. Haven't done it the past few years.

I've been wanting to do a turkey on the grill again but can't find those large-sized foil bags anymore. They worked great.

Charcoal in the winter is tough to do for me. Seems like the I could never keep the coals hot enough

The recipes I see think it's okay. They call for an ovenproof, nonstick pan
