Saturday Morning Coffee Break

rise-shine-20150708-27.jpg


***


Yup, Saturday morning is here. Let's take a look at a few things that didn't get too much if any attention here at the AoSHQ this past week.

***


  • The male gender is getting weirder and weirder.

  • Bacon wanted revenge.

  • Men more emotional than women at work? Bullshit. No offense 'ettes.

  • Truth in advertising, the tattoo way.

  • A pillar of the community? Yikes.

  • Ooops! I would have loved to heard the excuse.

  • Quite the ex-wife.

  • Perhaps the barrel isn't such a bad place afterall.

  • Screw U-Haul.

  • Frozen tundra? Not always. These folks found out the hard way. Or Minnesota Nice, hell no.

  • I like to try different foods. But there are some things where I just say "No". No way in hell.

    Rules? It's an open thread. Be nice to the 'ettes and play nicely with others. Have a great weekend!!!

    16 DATELINE: Panera in the suburbs. It's sunny and 48 F., but rain predicted for tonight and tomorrow (so my washing the car is partly in vain. At least the big sedan will look good for about 18 hours).

    As I do every 3 weeks, I'm out here to get my ears lowered, make some essential purchases at the Target nearby, then flee home before the traffic gets bad. At this time of year the weather is good; but by late Feb. or early March it will be sticky and warm.

    23 Good Saturday morning to you from wintery Canuckistan, where our Conservatives can't find someone to lead them and Justin is at least smart enough to stay the hell out of the papers this week (maybe there was a sale on shoe polish).

    The coffee is hot and my seat is warm, but the store is a mess and I'm buying about half a million cards on Saturday, so I have to figure out where the hell I'm going to put them.

    Forty years between shaves? Do birds nest in your beard, then?

    26 Good Saturday morning, horde!

    I've got a steaming pot of Guatemalan, and I am experimenting with CBD oil starting this weekend, for relentless hot flashes and bad sleep. Anyone out there using CBD products and have advice?

    Also, I can attest to men being "emotional" at work. Every place I've ever worked (career in tools, hardware, logistics, farm & ranch, and car sales), the men are caught up in drama with each other. Usually, one thinks the place can't operate without him, and the others think it's just the opposite.

    ---My wife is from the Toronto area. Across the street was a HUGE Chinese buffet, and a good portion of it was actual old-school Chinese food. I would force myself to try horrible-looking dish each time, and I never found a damned thing I liked. Cuttlefish, incidentally, tastes like an old mop smells. Same consistency, too.

    The looks on the faces of the old Chinese guys was great, though.

    I grew a beard starting in November. I haven't had one for about 25 years. Yeah I started early at 4.

    Come Spring I'll shave it off. The way winter is going I'm guessing sometime between Flag Day and Independence Day

    I bought some CBD cream at a dispensary late last year, to try on the arthritis-like twinges I get at the base of my thumbs. Stuff smelled nice. No effect. I could probably use it to shave with, though.

    38 Sen. Bernie Sanders leads the field of Democratic presidential candidates in Iowa, according to a new poll released Saturday.


    25 percent, pick Sanders as their first choice in next month's caucuses.


    That gives Sanders a 7-point lead over his closest competitor, former South Bend (Ind.) Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who is at 18 percent, roughly tied for second place with former Vice President Joe Biden at 17 percent and Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts at 14 percent





    I really want Comrade Bernie to win these caucuses and primaries and then the DNC step in and say, "Yeah, no we're still not giving you the nomination" and watch his lunatic supporters freak the fark out. A Dem civil war would be a thing of beauty

    39 April, I just started using the CBD oil as well. I've just grown very weary of living in constant pain and hoping this will ease my arthritis. Been on it for close to a week. She said it could take a few weeks. Let's keep each other posted on our progress. I've been using the ointment and it's wonderful. But I can't spread it all over my body lol!

    Well, for all I know, they could have another candidate who's a better fit for the position. It could be. Nothing I can do about it, if that's the case, and it would be irrational not to choose the best one.

    But as for my part, I went out on that field and left none of my cards on the table, gave it 110% adjusted for inflation and just kept moving the goalposts down the court on a triple word score. My word as a Biden.

    I don't care that I have stubble around my goatee (neither does my wife), so I only shave once a week. I have a really soft beard, so if I do it more often it just tears the hair out of my face. Can't use electrics, either.

    I got into the old-fashioned way of shaving after I cut myself with an electric.

    'Struth. I was shaving along with my Braun electric and felt a sting. Thought I had pulled a hair. Then I saw the thin scratch and the blood. Turned out a tiny bit of the metal foil had broken and was sticking up.

    I played with a Norelco for a while, then went to a safety razor, and now like you do the brush, cream or soap, and 2-3 passes on the face about every 24-48 hours. I have a "Commander Riker" style beard, so I don't have much facial real estate to shave. But it feels good to be clean-shaven, and I'm saving a LOT of money over those expen$$ive cartridge razors.

    58 Speaking of interviews, I did a video interview with Amazon, wherein they sent me a list of questions and I recorded the answers.

    A week later, they sent me an email, "oops, would you mind doing your interview again? We sent you the wrong questions."

    I declined to do their video assessment again. I don't need the job that badly and if their HR department makes that kind of mistake, I don't think it bodes well for the future.

    68 I shave daily.

    Mainly because I am unable to really grow a beard and if I let it go, it looks really bad.

    Though, it does remind me of how foolish I was when I was a young man, because I wanted to start shaving, like a grown up.

    Now that it's a daily chore, no thanks.

    I tried the CBD gummies my granddaughter bought for my wife after she decided she didn't like the taste of them. I took them for the inflammation in my back and they seemed to work for me. But they are pricey...about a buck per gummy, I think.

    81 Shaving: Two or three times a week, now that I'm retired (one year ago). I shaved every work day. Now, I don't care about having a two or three day stubble when going to the store, or a movie, or a restaurant. I look pretty scraggly if I let it grow four days.

    I'd be glad of a little masking of these twinges. I'm fine most of the time, but when I pinch thumb and forefinger together, especially on the left hand, to open a package or to hold something tightly, I get a "Hey! Man! You're usin' us too much!"

    Naproxen and ibuprofen help a little. Tylenol works a bit better, but I've read about its effect on the liver, and since I have but one of those, I'm cautious.

    Unless you're in the computer/administrative end-and even then that can be very stressful if you have to hound the employees all the time-do not work for Amazon if you are older. My husband worked there for two months-worked his backside off. You have to meet quotas that go up all the time, and the pace is unrelenting. He went to work there for the benefits but it was quite obvious that they hired older workers merely to say that they did. so but when they couldn't keep up a pace that even some younger workers struggled with all the older workers got fired.

    Well, diclofenac's an anti-inflammatory. (NSAID)

    And a rather powerful one, so you're also keeping the inflammation down which helps minimize the arthritic damage.

    Like the pain upon pinching with thumb and forefinger could be thumb arthritis. Not going away without the surgery, but maybe you can live with it on diclofenac ointment.

    147 The commies are trying to oust the President and spread disease all over the world and you want to talk about shaving???

    Ok.

    Car wreck in '78 left me with a scar across my chin, which I can but don't like to shave, so I just had a goatee since then, the chin hairs looking a bit lonely without a mustache.

    Been letting the face grow out for the winter. My cheeks hair is thin and doesn't look like much until it gets long, then I have a passable gray beard. (WHY does the neck hair grow back so fast?)

    The mustache is usually trimmed, but I've been letting it grow, and it's at that point where it's not yet easy to brush to the sides, so it hangs like a soup strainer a lot.

    Now about these hairs in my nose and ears...

    *creak* *groan* Being over 29 isn't for the faint of heart.

    I've got a hell of a leave beard going. Haven't shaved since the first weekend of December.

    I've got a clipper that will make short work of it and then a single blade disposable will sacrifice its life to reduced the stubble to something easier to manage.

    When I was in high school I grew a long beard the spring of my senior year just to see what it would look like. Still had it when I got my drivers license photo taken.

    To shave it off, I had to use grass shears since our household scissors weren't up to the task.

    oooh, nice.

    I disagree only insofar as it has helped my wife. It's an anti-inflammatory and if your pain is from nerves rather than inflammation, it's useless.

    But hers comes from inflammation and it works great - similar to motrin but that tears up her stomach. She's much more active since she started using it.

    Since then the red had turned white and my wife laments my shaving it off, because she really liked the color pattern on it. Said I looked like a gray wolf/viking chieftain.

    I told her that with the proper persuasion I may let it grow back until the next drill.

    -get up & leave during it either in a body or one by one to distract the defense/draw the cameras

    -arrange for demonstrators to disrupt the proceedings by yelling or holding up signs

    -Senators themselves yell 'you lie" or "not true" or "Traitor" or some such bullshit

    If nothing else, it may make your nails harder, but it may help ease some of the issues with the pain.

    Boric Acid U.S.P is exceptionally cheap in the pharmacies, it is used as a antiseptic dust for skin and an eye wash.
    I bought some pre-made supplements and have been taking them, it seems to work for my hands in that they don't ache before weather fronts come in, but I find them expensive, so I may just go back to dissolving Boric Acid into water.

    I've read a number of accounts from Chinese experts that the Cultural Revolution was successful in destroying the traditional honor-based culture. It exists only on Taiwan and in expatriate communities. Maybe in isolated villages in the mainland, but not in mainstream society.

    It has been replaced with an amoral ruthlessness that values advancement over everything else.

    Such a society is indifferent to suffering and worries more about how careers can be protected than whether lives can be saved.

    Fast-forward to yesterday, when I received a notice from a third-party administrator that a class action suit was filed because the insurer was overcharging. I'm eligible to join the suit ( and, in fact, have an ID number assigned) but I'm not sure I want to do that. I'd lose the option to litigate it individually.

    A football team that runs up the score against paraplegics isn't necessarily any good.

    No one was resisting and what's remarkable is how Trump's minimal (and it was very minimal) trade actions threw China into a tailspin.

    This is stuff that was once bipartisan consensus territory and longstanding US policy going back to the founding. The super-smart Chinese did not see it coming and had zero plans in place to counter it.

    And now Xi has a nation that is trembling on the brink of famine, facing a pandemic, is being penned in by a regional alliance that hates and fears him and has its richest city in open rebellion for a year.

    Oh, and Taiwan is going to get the most advanced arms package in decades, including F-16s fitted with special weapons pylons allowing them to add even more missiles so that they can down extra Red jets without having to rearm.

    310 267 Let me see if I can give you the Cliff's Notes version, Insom.

    A couple of years before he died my late hubby allowed his life insurance to lapse. Premium kept going up and he said he couldnt afford it. He died four years ago with no life insurance.

    Fast-forward to yesterday, when I received a notice from a third-party administrator that a class action suit was filed because the insurer was overcharging. I'm eligible to join the suit ( and, in fact, have an ID number assigned) but I'm not sure I want to do that. I'd lose the option to litigate it individually.
    We could be talking six figures. I'm paralyzed by the entire thing. Thoughts?
    Posted by: creeper at January 25, 2020 10:07 AM (XxJt1)

    Find a lawyer with experience in that field and get their advice. Seriously. Typically, your run-of-the-mill member of a class won't get a whole lot out of it, but also in some cases it's not worth the undertaking to litigate individually. That's not necessarily the case for each potential member of a class. However, I can't tell you which category you fall into. So, I recommend you consult with an attorney who understands class actions and has experience litigating against insurance companies so they can evaluate your potential claim against the insurance company as an individual.

    My 2 cents- if you think you might have a viable claim, get the complaint and other filings, (available online or from the plaintiffs attorneys) and bring them to your own lawyer. If the case is developed (and /or if your facts are good ) and there are no great defenses to your claim, like statute of limitations,you shouldnt have a problem finding someone to take it on contingency (but also consider if you have the stomach for it).

    One thing that we have that the chicom do not is structural flexibility. Even savaging the country as the left has done for so long is not enough to permanently destroy the country. There is room to snap back.

    The chicoms are the opposite. They have a very effective system for quashing any that would create mischief or worse, as the left has done in America, however, there is nothing they can do once the rebels get established.

    362 U-haul won't hire smokers... yeah, lots of companies won't hire smokers.

    Why?

    Because it costs businesses shedloads of money to have smokers on the job. Both in terms of healthcare benefits paid out, and loss of productivity for the multiple smoke breaks they take.

    But sure, let's have the government step in and prevent companies from choosing who they can and can't hire. That works out so well.

    Posted by: Hairyback Guy at January 25, 2020 10:17 AM (Z+IKu)


    China's food problem comes from central planning. The Great Leap Forward and the subsequent Cultural Revolution caused massive famine for the same reason the Ukrainian Homodolor had such famine and Pol Pot killed so many by famine. Central planning by idiots whose only goal was to take as much food to the central cities from a rural populace who had been made actual slaves of the government.
    When push came to shove, the Communists were willing for massive famines instead of admitting error of the economic model. They then claimed the famines were caused by overpopulation (too many mouths) and they instituted the one family one child laws.

    I am told the only thing that ended the cycle of famines was the Cultural Revolution causing so many apparatchiks to denounce so many fellow apparatchiks, that the Cadres were so thin on the ground, the locals were able to restart black market farming and get markets up

    I was commenting on the propaganda not "economic strength".The *growth* I asserted is a *fact*. Any measure of "economic strength" is a theory based on data, which is required before any conclusion can be drawn.
    It is well-known that the available data is almost entirely based on data inferred from trade figures and the like. That is subject to interpretation, which up until now has been guided by the helping hand of the CCP.I made no claim on "economic strength" but I did assert that there had undeniably been "growth".

    538 Historically speaking, revolutions don't happen when things go from bad to worse. That actually is a pretty stable circumstance, which is why Venezuela and North Korea are pretty quiet. See also Zimbabwe, South Africa, etc.

    You get a revolution when expectations are sharply at variance with reality, which is to say things started to get better than then retreat unexpectedly.

    Alternatively, when authority figures are exposed as blindingly inept.

    A third cause is a shocking show of weakness in the face of challenge.

    China has all three happening simultaneously.

    They claim the economy is still growing, but that's a lie.

    Hong Kong's defiance is a gaping wound to their aura of invincibility.

    And now you have a pandemic. Much of the roadblocks and teams in moon suits are just for show.

    Nobody is suggesting that he does not have any responsibility just that the circumstances surrounding him were a big thing in how he turned out.

    Having a powerful family and access to easy cash is something that lot of guys would be seduced by. His dad setting him up in jobs, as a way to funnel graft to the family, made it easier for him to go wrong. Think of how many guys have gone wrong with fewer influences acting against them.

    Does it mean he is blameless? No. Does it mean his dad is an even bigger cocksucker than acknowledged? Yes.

    I laughed about the idea of me "tattling to dad."
