LOLGF I wonder how big my carbon footprint was drafting The ONT. I hope bigger than my size 10.

Mankind’s behavior has taken a heavy toll on our earth, leading to several ecological problems. Carbon dioxide emissions are one of the leading causes. Here’s how you can calculate your own carbon footprint and offset these emissions.

Your carbon footprint is the total of greenhouse gases, mainly carbon dioxide, that you release in the air. It’s not what you breathe out, it’s the direct and indirect emission of your every activity. From using a car for travel to eating meat and dairy, each choice and activity in the modern world carries its own carbon emissions.

Once you calculate your personal carbon footprint, you’ll be able to figure out how much of an impact these choices have on the environment. And through small steps, you can reduce your footprint.

The ONT Musical Interlude



On this day: 26 Feb 1932
Johnny Cash US country singer, songwriter who was considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Although he is remembered as a country icon, his songs spanned other genres including rock and roll and rockabilly and blues, folk, and gospel. This crossover appeal won Cash the rare honour of induction in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the Gospel Music Hall of Fame. During the last stage of his career, Cash covered songs by several late 20th-century rock artists, most notably 'Hurt' by Nine Inch Nails. Cash died of respiratory failure on September 12th 2003, aged 71. via thisdayinmusic.com

On this day: 26 Feb 1997

When locking the door isn't enough. Basic carpentry skills for our Genius Award Winners.

WESTMORELAND COUNTY (KDKA) — A couple in Westmoreland County is accused of locking their son in a bedroom closet and nailing the door shut.

According to the criminal complaint, Shawn and Tammy Jo Waulk went to a birthday party and left their 9-year-old son alone at their Unity Township home.


They allegedly put him in a closet and used a drill to screw in wood slats across the door so he could not escape.

49 John Solomon on FoxNews Hannity just now: I don't think we're going to see any indictments out of the Horowitz/Durham investigation (but we will get a "full accounting" and abuse will be worse than we know now."

Huh. And... What's the point of exposing but not punishing illegal conduct? In fact, it's worse than just never getting to the bottom of it.

If you expose it, but do nothing, it's the equivalent of painting a vivid roadmap of what is de jure "legal" and thus ok conduct. "Do this, and nothing will happen." If spying on the candidate for President of the opposing party by illegal means isn't punished, where IS the line drawn? Consider: What is the person getting spied illegally on is YOU? Are YOU going to get recourse when the President of the United States doesn't?

Personally, I'll consider it a material breach of the social contract.

I just read that POS cuck Allahpussy's vomit about it being immoral to vote for Bernie in the Dem primary here in SC.

I was sort of on the fence about doing it, and even then wondering if Bernie would be the one to vote for. Maybe it should be someone else to help cause maximum chaos.

But after reading that POS's screed, I'm going to feel the Bern baby come Saturday.

Years ago, I was certain that the most reliable investment possible was to own a pub in Ireland.


Then the Irish (!) banned smoking in pubs.

Now you can have a pub in Ireland essentially for free, just take over the lease.

74 "Here's how you can calculate your own carbon footprint and offset these emissions."

There was a web calculator at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's kids website years ago - maybe 2007 or 2008 - that had a questionnaire kids could fill out based on their lifestyle and habits. There was a little pig avatar that would get bigger and bigger based on how much carbon was emitted due to each choice. After the quiz was over, the cartoon pig would explode in a shower of blood and the result would indicate at which age the child should die, because they had used their global per capita allotment of carbon emissions. It actually said that, in those words: "You should die at age xyz". I'll see if I can find an archive of it.

It's kind of amazing that such a thing used to be shocking and disgusting and outrageous. If you weren't sure what the "Overton window" means, it's that. A kids games corner of a government broadcasting agency's website telling kids outright that they should die because of carbon emissions used to be something out of the ordinary.

91 Years ago, I was certain that the most reliable investment possible was to own a pub in Ireland.


Then the Irish (!) banned smoking in pubs.

Now you can have a pub in Ireland essentially for free, just take over the lease.

276 I used to drive a '62 new yorker (hardtop!) in the silicone valley. 440CI big block, bench seats and a trunk you could pitch a tent in. I had a bumper sticker "I don't have a carbon footprint, I have a carbon CRATER"

Oh yeah, I had to buy some additive crap to make it run on unleaded. Nasty stuff, but the exhaust pipe was in the rear and the butterfly side windows kept a nice breeze so that shit never came near me.

322 Back in the early 1980s, when I first discovered Long Beach's now-legendary jazz station KLON (now known as KKJZ), they had a bunch of different genre shows on the weekends, to try and attract more listeners of course.

They had one show, hosted by a great guy named Steve Propes, called Rock & Roll & Rhythym & Blues; it mostly featured doo-wop however.

But when the show first came on the air in 1980, for whatever reason, Propes saw fit to name the show "We Don't Play No Jan & Dean." (When I got to meet him once and asked him about it, he admitted that he actually owned several J&D records.)

I also still can't believe what Gilbert O'Sullivan got away with. He first hit with a song about a suicidal jilted groom ("Alone Again (Naturally)"), then followed it up with a ditty proclaiming his feelings of romantic love for his 6-year-old niece ("Clair").

I can just hear his agent in 1973 after that last song. "What's your next big one gonna cover, Gil? Necrophilia?"

Read a news story a long time go about parents who were arrested for handcuffing their daughter to a radiator. The kid was leaving the apartment at night and getting into all sorts of trouble. Social services would do nothing to help the parents and they were at their wits end on how to stop her and protect her. So they handcuffed her to the radiator at night. Sounds harsh but the full story indicated they cared and saw no other option.

Hell, what my Mom did to me once, once mind you, would put her in jail today and put me into the foster care system. As a young 'un, I liked building little bonfires in the garage with those Diamond wooden strike-anywhere matches (which were used for lighting the gas oven as there was no pilot light; to turn the oven on, you had to stick a lighted match in a tiny hole way in the back of the lower broiler section). My Mom was worried about me burning down the house and no talkin' to would stop me. So this one time after she caught me, she stuck my fingers in the blue flame of the gas burner on top of the stove for a second or two. Harsh? Absolutely. But it cured me of playing with matches and the house never burned down, either.

Some kids are just stubborn.

From a typical American town.

And Senator Dodd,*
And keepin' ole Castro down.

I hate Chou En Lai,
And I hope he dies...
And if we ever have a war
Where there ain't no gore,
I'll be the first to go!

But Sarge... (tempo picks up here)
I'm only eighteen,
I got a ruptured spleen.
And my asthma's gettin' worse! (cough!)
I got eyes like a bat,
And my feet are flat,
And I always carry a purse! (limp wrist gesture)

Think of my career,
And my sweetheart dear,
And my poor old invalid aunt!
Besides I ain't no fool,
I'm a'goin' to school,
And a-workin' in a defense plant!

There's a whole YouTube genre of young black people listening to classic rock for the first time and commenting on it as you hear it. One of them takes requests, and someone sent her "The End."

I had a six-year-old brother who died two years before I was born. (Long sad story.) My Mom used to tell me about my brother. He liked playing pirate. He'd take a large knife from the kitchen, put it between his teeth, climb chain link fences and jump like Error Flynn in some pirate movie. My Mom only knew when a neighbor in Navy housing would yell, "INA! Jerry's got a knife in his teeth again!" Again, mind you.

Your brother sounds like mine. He would do some crazy shit. He got poison ivy from the neighbors hedges that divided our yards, because it was growing in there. His solution was to steal matches, and burn down the hedges. He used to break his toys. My uncle gets him some metal truck, when you could actually get metal trucks. Uncle says he'll never break this. Yeah about that, he went and found my father's hack saw and cut it in half. Then there was the time he threw a whole box of laundry detergent in the washer, along with some muddy boots my father had. He once put on a plastic toy space helmet and told me to hit him in the head with a hammer. Ok, that one was on me. lol. Still, he was a bundle man. When he got older my cousin taught him to drive when he was 13-14, so when he became 15 he took my wallet and took a cruise in my 71 road runner. Blew the horn at every chick driving a hot car, and I only pieced that together when these same chicks blew the horn every time they cruised by the house, and one actually stopped one time, and we ended up going out that night, which a story for whole different conversation (lol), but I found out later when she mentioned me beeping at her, and I realized it was bastard brother .These days he's the more normal one. I guess he got it out of his system.

It didn't, of course.

597 > Oly and Rainier were from Tumwater Washington (Olympia WA) and Weinhardt's was from Portland

Oly and Rainier are both brewed by MolsonCoors in California, under contract. MolsonCoors owns Weinhard outright.

> Grammie drank Lucky.

Lucky is currently defunct in the US, but is brewed by AB-Inbev in Canada. The name is owned by Pabst in the U.S. They're apparently reviving it, and it will be brewed in, yes, California.

I tried to check it and it looks like most of those old school ones under pabst are brewed out West now but it is hard to figure it out. I believe ya and didn't mean to claim you were wrong there. I knew someone put them together and it was pabst, that makes sense.

i am so old I once road with a trucker bringing Schlitz to the masses. When they liked the stuff. That brewery was in Longview Texas.

Lucky Lager is brewed by Labatts here in Canada, which is owned by InBev, I guess. The other big brewing company is Molson-Coors, who bought out Carling O'Keefe quite a few years ago.

The market share for the industrially-brewed bland beers is shrinking, so I guess consolidation is inevitable. But craft brewers are springing up all over.

Brewing beer takes a lot of water. And a lot of fuel. Both of which are inordinately expensive in California. Not surprising the big industrial brewers would want to leave.

The old Falstaff Brewery here in Galveston is about 80% "repurposed", and the rest of the project rolls along.

Most of it has been converted to Parking for those who drive to the Port of Galveston to board a cruise ship of one line or another.

About 25% of the space is nearly complete, being converted to climate controlled storage units.

And another section is being re-vitalized as a small, boutique hotel. Maybe a dozen or two rooms.

The Penthouse, up at about the 15th story or so, is a very nicely appointed rental "Party Room". Pretty much a full-on nightclub and dance hall, but not "open for retail", as a licensed establishment.

You want a reception there, you rent the space, contract the Open Bar, hire the D.J., etc.

But it's proving to be one of the island Hot Spots for the Beautiful People to see and be seen.

I just can't wait to never go there.

The problem with using laser pointers for kitties' playtime is that they never catch the damn thing. They need to catch and kill their toy to feel satisfied/vindicated; hunt/catch/kill/groom/sleep is a cat's life. When kitty gets bored of never catching the laser pointer, kitty will decide it's easier, and more fun, to catch and kill you. You being asleep seems to be the best time for that game.

my pharmacist said if what you are coughing up is yellow or green it is an infection. I am not giving net medical advice that is just what she said.

In the decaying days of Commi-ocialism in Hungary in the '80s, Monty Python was broadcast on Hungarian State TV under the guise of "English language instructional programme".

May I bring up a peeve? It's a slow ONT so I am going to insist on my peeve privilege.

A thing went around the interwebs saying that lox is the oldest proto Indo European (PIE) word, unchanged over the millennia.

No. Lachs in German and Lax in Swedish mean Atlantic Salmon. Lox in Yiddish means cured smoked Atlantic Salmon, because that's the form in which it would reach the shtetls.

Lox Lachs Lax is a strictly North Atlantic Baltic word for a fish that doesn't live in other places and there's no reason that it would be an ancient PIE word because they didn't have lox in those places.

Hah. Challenge accepted. The bagel began its life as the bialy, a donut shaped bread object from shtetls in Bialystock, which I think is in Belarus these days but might have been Polish, Russian, Ukranian, or SomethingElse when bialys were invented.

People there change borders regularly for reasons which are ill-understood.

New York Jews invented boiling bialy dough before baking it. Also they think their water is better than everyone else's. This innovation took a couple of hundred years to migrate back to the Jewish homelands, I think Israel got its first bagel shop in the early 2000s.

I am aware that this essay has nothing to do with the etymology of the word "bagel", but I want a 100 for the wealth of superfluous detail.

I'm no expert on Latin, I just know a little, and of course get a kick out of dirty words and dirty talk in Latin.

Clitoris comes from Greek (deriving from a word for "key" -- it's the key to a woman's heart, one might say and related to "tickle"). Clitorides is listed as the "post classical Latin" word.

In Roman times, the word for clit was "landicum" in all sorts of declensions. Interestingly, it was considered the most obscene word in the tongue and was never used in formal writing. Only vulgar tongue.

THere are a couple instances of puns being based on it used in Senate speeches.

'Hoi polloi' is one of those phrases/words that many mistake the meaning of because it looks/sounds like it means one thing, but actually means the opposite. Many people think 'hoi polloi' means the elite when it actually means the common people, the great unwashed. Or, in Hillary-speak, us deplorables.

"landicam" would be direct object of "landica".

I have been saying that for weeks. The only Democrats left in SC are blacks and not one of the Democrat candidates is black. And blacks predominately vote for blacks and if there isn't one running they will turn out in much lower numbers.

Well, there *might* be one. It was announced yesterday that the first case in the US from "an unknown source" was found in northern CA. Exactly where in 'northern CA' is unknown also, but as you might expect

There is a strong chance 'northern CA' = San Fran.

Pelosi just did a little photo op tour in San Fran, to alloy fears there. Chinatowns, worldwide, are suffering from a dearth of tourist traffic.

There is a scene in Urban Cowboy that discusses this. Funny, that is the second time I have mentioned Urban Cowboy in 24 hours. I think that last time I mentioned it to anyone was in the 1980s.

They never mention the company in that movie but it could have been Brown and Root. or some subsidiary.

I tried the aluminum foil/baking soda thing, and it worked somewhat, but it dulled the fork somewhat which I didn't like. I polished it and it's better, but I wouldn't do that again. And of course after I did it I found a few places on the internet that says "don't ever do this."

I'm leaving it be for now - probably no one will notice but me. I'll be using it at Easter and I might try some other polish then.

What are they going to do, throw money in the sky? Or is every university on earth going to petition for this money to "study" the virus and funnel billions into Swiss bank accounts and Communist coffers?

Don't they know that Trump's executive department is going to oversee doling out the cash?

True story

when I was a pup, I visited my dad in Dallas

I was down by the spillway on White Rock Lake screwing around, when felt a rock hit me

some kid was throwing rocks at me

told him to stop or I'd clock his ass

he kept on and I went up and punched him out

how did I know he had a glass eye ?

I can't believe how much it swelled up

his mother, who was from south america. went ballistic

My dad, 11 year Marine, said "he stopped didn't he "

are there rules? That is the first I have heard of it. For sure there are rules, I want to be clear here, you can't just do anything. But I always thought people could leave little trinkets, coins, etc. They get picked up no doubt. But I don't think they would stop someone from leaving a memento. I could be wrong here but that is what I recall.

I know with the Vietnam Memorial, people leave all kinds of stuff and the Park Service collects them at the end of the day. I think there is a locale where they store a lot of that stuff.

Did he actually say that? Because, frankly, that is comedy gold. Imagine Mr. Burns on the Simpsons saying that in that Mr. Burns voice. With a marked pause between "someone" and "important" and a slightly lower intonation and emphasis on "important".

Absolute comedy-frigging gold Jerry!
