Oh No! It's Thursday Night!

I guess I better write the ONT.

Sportsball


Another member of the “blame everyone but yourself” generation. In bizarre lawsuit, Yankees’ failed prospect says Derek Jeter ruined his career. Kid couldn't get beyond A ball, so of course Jeter is to blame. He's also suing the Reds and some sports training complex because he's not in the NFL.

Speaking of the NFL, here's a story that took a strange twist. Kyle Rudolph Said Reporter Scammed Him Into Signing Game Worn Gloves Only To Have Them Sold on eBay. Rudolph is the Vikings tight end who caught the game winning pass last weekend, sending the Saints to their annual early playoff exit. The story appears to have a happy ending – a guy who said he bought them responds to Rudolph's tweet offering to donate them to charity – but the cynic in me notes that he also has a tweet up soliciting Venmo donations “for charity”. It could be legit, the Bud Light guy, Carson King, raised over a million dollars for the University of Iowa's Stead Children's Hospital in a similar situation, but you never know. I hope Rudolph stays involved and makes sure the money gets donated as promised.

Finally, the divisional round of the playoffs are this weekend, featuring the #1 seed Baltimore Ravens and their dynamic QB Lamar Jackson. I don't know if the Ravens offense, built around Jackson, is truly “revolutionary” or simply this year's “hot thing” (this article argues that it is a game-changer with staying power), but one thing is sure, Jackson himself is about the nicest, most humble player in the league right now, and that's good pub the NFL badly needs.

A Mind So Open The Brain Fell Right Out


Polyamory Is Next, And I’m One Reason Why


This person is a child. She may inhabit the body of an adult, but she is a spoiled, pouty, petulant, selfish child. If you ever want to know what they mean when they say that someone has “made themselves the center of the universe”, here's Exhibit A. I sincerely hope she has a miserable life-and I bet she will unless she somehow grows up.


Wanna know why the left is so miserable all the time? Because they are constantly, endlessly, 24/7/365, attempting to deny that reality is reality. It's got to be exhausting, constantly screaming to yourself that black is white, and even more so demanding that everyone you meet not only share your delusion, but celebrate it. Honestly, these people are mentally ill.

There was some woman in the UK who hid a camera in her, uh, endowment, and went walking down the street. Later she edited down the footage, to capture everyone who looked right into the camera.

To your point, if I had to guess, I am betting not much of the sex was actually going on there either. It was all about power and lonely people trying to find a place.

Tell me about it. This is a pretty much verbatim conversation from over 30 years ago...

Cur and girlfriend are at the mall, and a smokin' hawt chick walks by. Cur, being both in love and stupid, immediately ignores the other hottie.

Cur's girlfriend: You were looking at her, weren't you.

Cur: Nope.

CG: Yes you were, don't lie.

C: No, I didn't look.

*repeat for about 20 minutes*

C: Okay, okay already. If it'll make you happy, sure. I was looking.

CG: YOU BASTARD. HOW COULD YOU LOOK???!?!?!?!

188 The Washington Post has an oped up, called:

I Am A Republican, And I Hope The Democrats Pick A Candidate I Can Vote For

I am a Republican who has never voted for a Democrat in a presidential election. But I share Democrats' concern that our system is rigged to favor the wealthy and powerful over working families. I am tired of a loophole-ridden tax code that advantages investors over workers.

The person who wrote this, Sheila Blair, was appointed to run the FDIC under George W, Bush, after being a staffer for Bob Dole. (She wants a "respectable" Democrat, like Biden or Warren, to be nominated.)

And today? According to Wikipedia, she is "a non-executive director for the state-owned Industrial and Commercial Bank of China".

The Uniparty in a nutshell. Trump is threatening to upset these cosy arrangements where senior Federal officials can later go to work for the Chinese Communist Party and cash in.

And Sheila? I don't believe you when you claim that you didn't vote for Hillary.

I went back to work, and it was a tough row to hoe for quite a while, but I eventually found a niche and made some of the hardest taskmasters in the manned space business very happy with my work.

281 I can think of a few good episodes, but they are lost in the midst of so much drek.

The thing is, we remember one or two horrible episodes of TOS like... Spock's Brain or the Space Hippies (although the end of Way To Eden is enjoyable) but those are 80% of TNG.

Kirk the Indian was pretty bad too.

TOS had a lot of pretty bad episodes but the good one's were really good, plus just the IDEA of Star Trek was great.

I figure Meggie's been looking for an exit plan ever since she realized she has no chance of being as popular, or as good-looking as she ages, as Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge (wife of Prince William). Meaning she's been plotting for quite a while.
Posted by: Gref

======

My theory about Meggie: She wasn't ready for marriage, especially a marriage requiring as much sacrifice as marrying a foreigner with heavy cultural and social obligations and living smack in the center of his milieu.

This means, among other things, that you give up your precious "projects" about climate change and Trump-hatred and everyone's duty to hire as many woman as possible. You subjugate your privacy, your opinions, and your habits to an institution that is NOT A FAIRY TALE.

That would take an extraordinary girl, and Meghan strikes me as sub-ordinary. Dumb, entitled, lousy taste, narcissistic, lazy-minded.

Hrothgar, I do feel bad for the queen. She became queen when her father died who had become king due to the abdication of his brother. She has great loyalty and respect for her position and her country.
Her twatwaffle grandkids are just clueless.

Unfortunately, Queenie -- like Maggie Thatcher -- obligated herself so heavily to her post that her kids suffered. Charles repudiated his upbringing and started a crappy family life of his own. England's chickens are coming home to roost!

The nuclear option for the queen would be to strip Harry and Meggie of their titles, and make them persona non-grata. Completely cut them off.

She could do that. I don't think she'll go that far yet. But if they try some Kardasshian like shit, selling trashy merchandise and a reality show and all that, she will, I think.

I always found those debates baffling, cuz the Enterprise is obviously more advanced tech, yet somehow the Star Wars gang took that as an insult. It's not, I mean, a British Man-o-war was a great ship...but it loses a fight to a WWI battleship every time. Accepting that doesn't say a single bad thing about the man-o-war.

Mark Steyn was on Tucker tonight and spoke a bit about Meggia and Harry. He said Meggie thought becoming a royal would be just a being an A-list Hollywood celebrity, getting her up to that level of stardom.

But she found out quickly that being a "minor royal" (ie not in direct line) was not anything like that. They have duties and expectations. It's not about them personally, it's about country.

He said when they have to show up at the orphans' hospital in New Zealand for some ceremony, it's not about them, it's really about orphans in New Zealand.

384 I used to feel sorry for Prince Harry given his unusual upbringing, an adoring mother taken from him too soon, a whackjob father in Prince Charles, and an obvious resemblance to his real biological father (not Charles).

But his marrying Meghan seemed like a big FU to the royal family, and all they have done since their marriage is pile on.

They can both go suck an egg. The royals should be thanking God for Will and Kate.

The phone booths in many "old" movies will confound our youth (assuming they ever watch anything made before they were 7 years old). The next time Hollywood remakes Superman they'll have to send him/her/???? into a conveniently vacant solo, unisex restroom.


And here's something now gone that the youngsters will never even know existed: The Bell System's long-distance call microwave network, with the big line-of-sight send/rcv "horns" on standalone towers sprinkled across the countryside, and on the roofs of the tallest buildings in a town.

And I especially like the part of that where she includes abandoning religion as part and parcel of her "conversion" to anarcho-capitalist libertarianism.
It reminds me of the old anti-drug commercial with the eggs.

Those were once featured in an episode of Lassie.

But I don't remember the plot.

What I do remember? The Marlin 336 *without* a side-button, cross-bolt safety. Smith & Wesson revolvers without the accursed "key" safety device. And singers before auto-tune.

We had an old microwave dish as our satellite receiver in our backyard when I was in middle/high school. One of the 8-footers or so. We built a pad, a system to mount it (including a remote control motor to move it from satellite to satellite), and dad fashioned a horn for it. Then he hooked up a satellite decoder and we had HBO and such.

493 Well, I see that Sen Lee has back down considerably on Martha McCullum tonight after whining to the press...apparently, Trump talked to him.

His argument is essentially what I said, he's upset that this administration, and other previous ones, gave short shrift to Congress on their supposed war powers authority.

But Pompeo and Trump are right on this, the Congress has no interest in using its authority here, they would rather criticize from a third party position. Trump called them on it. So he'll use it rather than wait for ever on Sen Lee and others to make up their minds - hell, the house can't even make up its mind to send impeachment articles.

After he retired from 24 years in the Navy, my late Dad had a small TV repair shop on Edgewater Drive, down in Orlando, FL. Quasar was the leading edge of the Solid State revolution that put him out of business there.

It was a blessing in disguise. He hired on with a wee little company then called Orlando Laser.

It blew up into Litton Laser Systems, a major defense contractor.

In the first Gulf War, when everyone was stunned to see the accuracy of guided munitions, a little known fact:

Didn't matter if it was Martin Marietta, General Dynamics, Lockheed or whoever, about 80% of all the laser projectors in those weapons systems came off of the Litton Laser Systems benches.

Dad retired from there as the Senior Prototype Test Engineer. Never attained more than an Associates in Electrical Engineering.

But, he was talented. Self-driven to a degree that Trump would respect. And about three times smarter than me.

He made it to 78. Passed in 2010.

Had one! I even learned to splice tape. I used to splice cassette tape when I'd end up with a weird amount of silence at the end of one after recording an album. I hated having to fast forward to the end of the silence so I could turn the tape over.

533 But Pompeo and Trump are right on this, the Congress has no interest in using its authority here, they would rather criticize from a third party position. "

You got that right - decision making in a fluid situation is hard, and it requires taking risks. Congress is terrified of risks, so they pawn off the hard decision making as much as possible. BUT then they want the credit that goes to those who DO make the decisions and who do actual leadership, so they wait until after the fact and then criticize everything that was done. It's a shallow and gutless tactic.

I always found those debates baffling, cuz the Enterprise is obviously more advanced tech, yet somehow the Star Wars gang took that as an insult. It's not, I mean, a British Man-o-war was a great ship...but it loses a fight to a WWI battleship every time. Accepting that doesn't say a single bad thing about the man-o-war.

Star Wars is far more technologically advanced. The Empire has ships that can traverse the Galaxy in days or weeks, while Starfleet ships require decades to do the same. The empires industrial capability is obviously far in excess of the Federation, and photon torpedoes are 64 megatons while star destroyer turbolasers are gigaton level weapons.

There was a girl who lived in the apartment building across from mine once. Seemed like a different guy every other day. Considering I saw a taxi parked across and how she looked vs how some of the dudes did, I wondered if perhaps she was a 'professional'. I'd see her when I was out on my balcony smoking (this was 2001 or 2.)

So there is some sidewalk repair going on, about 5 different guys. She comes out. Tight top across impressive ediface, jean short shorts that look like they are sprayed on. I was stunned and I was 50 feet away. The workers were 2-3. They did not say a damn word. Then, once she got in her car and left, they looked at me and at each other. I yelled 'Damn!'

See? This. Hyperdrive as a better way of traveling long distance? Sure, but SW ships don't fight in HD. They'll need the industrial capacity, cuz they're going to lose a lot of ships, because the third is my exact point. Laser technology, centuries obsolete in the ST universe. This is the exact argument I referenced earlier: "Well, obviously the Man-o-War is superior, it mounts 48 guns and the battleship only has 9". How many ships of the line do you need to take out one WWI battleship? Could any number do it?

The biggest n' baddest of Man O War era ships didn't carry guns capable of doing more than scratching the paint on a WWI era Battleship.

Well, they might punch through some random upper-decks structures, but not the turrets, gun casements and damn sure, not the hull.

If they did manage to kill the Battleship, it would be like being nibbled to death by ducks.

609 585 ..How many ships of the line do you need to take out one WWI battleship? Could any number do it?


Posted by: Weirddave at January 10, 2020 12:00 AM (r11vt)



The biggest n' baddest of Man O War era ships didn't carry guns capable of doing more than scratching the paint on a WWI era Battleship.

Well, they might punch through some random upper-decks structures, but not the turrets, gun casements and damn sure, not the hull.

If they did manage to kill the Battleship, it would be like being nibbled to death by ducks.

613 Hyperdrive means that the empire would choose when and where to fight, striking where they have the advantage. The industrial capability means that they'll have the advantage of numbers, and the ability to force the Federation to scatter their forces. And ignoring that turbolasers are quite obviously not simply lasers, what matters is raw power. Imperial weapons are an order of magnitude greater than Federation weapons. So, to use your analogy, the man o war in question is faster than a cruiser, with the firepower greater than a battleship, and there are a lot more of them.

It allows you to measure the values, and condition, of electronic components like resistors, capacitors, and inductors. It can do direct measurements, or it can compare an unknown to a known standard, and read out the ratio between the known and unknown. Say I used a 120 ohm 1% precision resistor as my standard, and my unknown reads a ratio of 95%, the the unknown would be 116 ohms. That could be useful if one were building or repairing a piece of equipment that required precisely-matched components, say a stereo amp.

Then ETV came along and started operating on UHF, Ch. 29. To tune that in -- well you needed a UHF antenna, really -- You had to turn the main channel knob to "U", then tune it with the separate UHF knob.

That was the Muppets and Mr. Rogers. Then came Ch. 16, a religious channel.

Some time later came Ch. 21, UHF and the channels exploded after that.

With HDTV, they're all UHF know, and have no idea what channels are which anymore. There's still a 4, but it's mapped to whatever HD UHF channel is used.

A helpful guy in a Trabant stopped helpfully. He said I have a tow cable, I'll get you out.

I said wow that's nice and convenient that you have a tow cable and he said Trabi drivers have everything.

The BMW may have weighed 3,500 lbs, the Trabi with the driver in it 600 lbs. He did not pull me out of the ditch, but he meant well.

677 579 Star Wars is far more technologically advanced. The Empire has ships
that can traverse the Galaxy in days or weeks, while Starfleet ships
require decades to do the same. The empires industrial capability is
obviously far in excess of the Federation, and photon torpedoes are 64
megatons while star destroyer turbolasers are gigaton level weapons.
See? This. Hyperdrive as a better way of traveling long distance? Sure, but SW ships don't fight in HD. They'll need the industrial capacity, cuz they're going to lose a lot of ships, because the third is my exact point. Laser technology, centuries obsolete in the ST universe. This is the exact argument I referenced earlier: "Well, obviously the Man-o-War is superior, it mounts 48 guns and the battleship only has 9". How many ships of the line do you need to take out one WWI battleship? Could any number do it?
Posted by: Weirddave at January 10, 2020 12:00 AM (r11vt)


I think it's not the weapons that you look at. Nor the size of the vessels and bases.

What always struck me was how a ship capable of interstellar was basically a commodity in Star Wars. You see individuals (quite a few) that own starships.

And they work on them like street racers of the 20th Century.

Nope. There are some areas where terrain still favors VHF, and digital TV works fine on both bands. The upper UHF (anything above 48 I think) has been repurposed. At it's peak, the UHF band went up to channel 84 IIRC. 66 was the highest frequency ever used in my area.

Yep, there's a big gap between 2 -6 and 7-13. The FM radio band is in between.

I remember I had a little portable TV with a little 5" or so screen. You had a radio style, fine tuning knob. Then a toggle. You had the 2 - 6 band, then 7 - 13, then UHF.

It also had AM and FM, and that was a separate toggle.

683 Very nice. The other day I was looking through a 1958 Popular Electronics. There were an immense number of electronic kits of all sorts available from many, many manufacturers, all very inexpensive, even in '58 dollars.

Jim is right, the Mustang is capable in the twisties. NOT as good as a Miata, but the Miata also cannot pick up speed anywhere near as quick in the straights.

The Miata was a confidence inspiring car. Ask me how I know.

I picked up a habit of accelerating into curves before the peak.

I tried that the first time on a highway on ramp in the mustang. I did not completely break the rear end loose, but just enough to go 'Ooops.'

There wasn't any radar in WW I, so everything is sight range. In fact, the sailing ships would probably see the BB first since burning coal leaves a big ugly smudge on the horizon. They could probably damage it some, too, since not everything is armored - lots of WW I battleships didn't armor the conning towers. No way they could get through the belt, though.

Phones...as a kid we had a shared line with the elderly neighbor lady. We would be talking and would hear her pick up her phone to make a call. Then we'd have to say, "gotta go, Mrs. P. wants to use the phone!" Apparently this was much cheaper than having your own line.

Back in the '80s, before all the cooking shows, I could buy a trash fish called monkfish pretty cheap. It was also called 'poor man's lobster'. Now monkfish is popular which means the prices have been jacked up.

Never really had much fresh water seafood as I grew up on the Atlantic coast. Been crabbing a few times, bringing home baskets of crabs crying to be steamed. And raw oysters although brother's MiL made a really good breaded sauteed oyster. The mudbugs I had in Nah'luns are probably the strangest seafood I ever ate. Tiny little baby lobsters but better than lobsters. A band from there, The Radiators, even wrote a song about eating mudbugs. If you didn't know what they were singing about, you'd think the song was about something dirty. "Suck the head/Squeeze the tip."

Smoked salmon is good. Irish pubs do it well. For me, salmon is best smoked or raw. Never liked 'cooked' salmon.

The one fish I did quit eating, even though I love it, is swordfish. They apparently are mercury magnets.

Buying fresh seafood at a grocery store is . . . risky. I'll stick to a fish market, where I know the fish are fresh (no smell at the fish counter).

I go occasionally to a farmer's market in the neighborhood on Sundays. Last spring, they had fresh sea scallops. They even gave me one to eat raw, which I never did before. It was so fresh and delicious -- even naked. The scallops I brought home I cooked in a hot cast iron pan about 15 seconds a side. Best damn scallops I ever had.

Not really all that difficult and you can prepare them earlier in the day, keeping them covered in the fridge. Getting the bacon partially cooked is the hardest part. You want it pliable but not raw, so it doesn't take too long to finish cooking on the grill. Two toothpicks to hold it together. The butter comes together in about 5-10 minutes. The oysters are on the hot grill for less than 10 minutes, turning often then basting.

I do that with my scallops, precook the bacon a little so that the scallops doesn't get overcooked.

I'm just imaging trying to wrap the slippery little oyster. I'm lazy, I'd probably mince the bacon, par-fry it and top the oyster with it in the shell and then douse it in your butter after cooking them on the grill in the shell.

I have no doubt your preparation is vastly superior.

The most recent Cooks Country (maybe Cooks Illustrated, same folks, though) had an article about scallops. They recommend patting them to remove all the water you can, and then leaving an inch or so of room between each one in the pan so you don't steam them when they release what water is left. I haven't done it yet, but I have never given them enough room before. I'm interested to see how they turn out.

So you really aren't having to handle the oyster, just kind of use the bacon to roll it.

Does thinner bacon work better?

I cooked the scallops I bought in two batches. Cook a batch, eat, cook another batch, eat. I have a 9" cast iron skillet and I cooked about 7 scallops per batch, so they had lots of room.

One time I bought scallops and I didn't know they were frozen/thawed. As soon as those scallops hit the pan, they gave off a shit-ton of water and shrank to marbles. I was pissed.

Gone are suspicions that politicians may actually lie to promote their agenda, Some 4,500 soldiers are joining 50,000 troops already stationed in the Mideast.

Republicans and Evangelicals have fallen in lockstep with their mighty crusader to "keep America safe" from marauders who do us harm.

This is really the heart of the matter. Cultural relativism to the highest degree in every facet of life. General Splatter is a hero because Islamism is "just as good" as Western democracy and it's The West that needs to see this and welcome their views. The fact that Islamism is diametrically opposed to the LGBTQ agenda, the feminist agenda, Judaism and Christianity and Hinduism, doesn't matter. It's a little more "equally valid" because it's being subjected to "OMG H8ers" and maybe if we bring scads of jihadi minded people to the West and kiss their ass, we'll all love each other.

Obviously Trump wants this or it wouldn't happen, right? And if you don't believe it you hate Trump. And if you are angry, you're a pessimist and need a bitch slap. I know, I know

942 923 To be fair, if I was at the Golden Globes, I would not change what I was doing one whit because some comedian said something.

I mean, its cool and all that he delivered a scolding to hypocrites, but ultimately he's a comedian. He's not the boss of me. And ultimately he's going to dump on Trump and us soon enough.

Well, of course, but the point is about the timing. Perfect.

The Golden Globes host didn't say anything we didn't already know about them, and he didn't tell the celebrities anything they didn't already know about themselves and their wicked industry. So yeah, it was interesting to hear it said aloud but I don't know who thought it was news.
