The Saturday Night Joke - Southern Style

While riding my Harley, I swerved to avoid hitting a deer, lost control and landed in a ditch, severely banging my head.

Dazed and confused I crawled out of the ditch to the edge of the road when a shiny new convertible pulled up with a very beautiful woman who asked, "Are you okay"?

As I looked up, I noticed she was wearing a low-cut blouse with cleavage to die for...

"I'm okay I think," I replied as I pulled myself up to the side of the car to get a closer look.

She said, "Get in and I'll take you home, so I can clean and bandage that nasty scrape on your head."

"That's nice of you," I answered, "but I don't think my wife will like me doing that!"

"Oh, come now, I'm a nurse," she insisted. "I need to see if you have any more scrapes and then treat them properly."

Well, she was really pretty and very persuasive. Being sort of shaken and weak, I agreed, but repeated, "I'm sure my wife won't like this."

We arrived at her place which was just few miles away and,after a couple of cold beers and the bandaging, I thanked her and said, "I feel a lot better, but I know my wife is going to be really upset so I'd better go now."

"Don't be silly!", she said with a smile. "Stay for a while. She won't know anything. By the way, where is she?"

"Still in the ditch, I guess."


OK, lighten up, it's only a joke.

Putting together tonight's ONT was a challenge. Everything is f*cking Kung Fu Flu related or so it seems. Even Charlie from the Manitowoc Minute is in on it.

Hmmm, guess who gets top notch reviews? Illegal drug dealers on the Darknet.

Trust used to be a very personal thing: You went on the recommendations of your friends or friends of friends. By finding ways to extend that circle of trust exponentially, technology is expanding markets and possibilities. Consider the darknet. It is creating trust between the unlikeliest of characters, despite a heavy cloak of anonymity.

You can’t get to the darknet using your regular web browser; most access it via an anonymizing software called Tor (an acronym for “The Onion Router”. The darknet is peopled by journalists and human rights organizations that need to mask their browsing activity but it’s also home to hundreds of thousands of drug sellers and buyers. People who would commonly be stereotyped as untrustworthy, the worst of the worst, yet here they are creating highly efficient markets. Effectively, they are creating trust in a zero-trust environment. Nobody meets in person. There are obviously no legal regulations governing the exchanges. It looks like a place where buyers could get ripped off. Theoretically, it would be easy for dealers to send lower quality drugs or not deliver the goods at all.

Is that a pistol in your pocket or are you just glad to see me? Stick around for the steak dinner my Dear.

CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. – A New York man inadvertently shot his girlfriend while trying to pay for their steakhouse dinner, WIVB reports.

Cheektowaga police say 19-year-old Anthony Ciccarelli dined with his girlfriend at Texas De Brazil Thursday evening. He reached into the front pocket of his pants when the bill arrived, and his gun discharged. The gunshot hit his girlfriend in the upper leg.

Holy crap!!! It didn't take the Chinese long to put facial recognition to work. In of all places, the bathroom. H/T Bitter Clinger

This is not something you'd expect to go through a facial scan for, but in China toilet-goers now need to pass a facial recognition system in order to receive tissue paper.

These camera-equipped dispensers are designed to combat the so-called 'toilet paper thieves', who would hide several metres of communal toilet paper in their bags and sneak them home.

In Fuzhou, each toilet-goer would be given a piece of toilet paper measuring 70cm long (28 inches) once they have their face recognised.

Hmmm. You don't see this every day.

Not going anywhere? A Candy Bar Ended a Five-Hour Prison Standoff

Last summer, an Irish candy delivery company surveyed more than 7,000 people to determine the country's favorite candy bar. The winner was determined to be the plain Cadbury Dairy Milk bar, followed by Galaxy Smooth Milk and the Kinder Bueno. Mars bars didn't crack the top eight—the ranking only included eight varieties, for some reason—but that doesn't seem to matter to the inmates at the Midlands Prison in Portlaoise.

Bored in your self or mandatory quarantines? If you are in Italy Pornhub has you covered.

The coronavirus has hit Italy so hard the government announced a nationwide quarantine — and Pornhub wants to keep citizens from leaving their houses… by giving them premium subscriptions, entirely free of charge.

The adult content company announced Italian users can claim premium subscriptions without entering any of their credit card details throughout March. Pornhub is also donating a percentage all of its proceeds from Modelhub — a subsidiary that helps creators sell content — to local hospitals.

23 I think I am going to have to block my kid's school on Facebook. They post a lot of information on it that is usually useful, but right now, all it is is parents shitting themselves over the kids needing things to do on the break. They already sent home work packets. If I was in charge, I would have told them all, "Peace out, enjoy the time off and be ready to work when you get back." It's not like they are all going to come back stupid after this. Hell, they could excuse the rest of the year, and things will still be fine.

Mine wouldn't be, either.

Which reminds me. . .

In the late 1950s, there was a series of joke books that went under the "Sexteen" label - Over Sexteen, More Over Sexteen, Sexteen in Color and so on - which had what used to be called "tired businessman" jokes about harridan wives, sexy secretaries, cheating partners and so on along with cartoons of scantily clad young women doing what scantily clad women do.

In any event, one cartoon that I always liked showed a newlywed couple in their honeymoon suite. The stacked bride was primping herself in front of a mirror while, behind her, the groom sat in his pajamas on the edge of the bed, a fearful look in his eye, because his new wife - in addition to her sexy nightgown - was wearing a shiny new set of spurs.

I picked up milk, eggs, diet coke, nuts, beef weenies, all adequately stocked. The cookies had been worked over a bit, but that was about the only bare shelf space I saw. The line had 3 people in front of me -- One cashier.

123 Passing through downtown Asheville this afternoon, I can tell you that the Millennial/Gen-X/hipsters are not worried about The Whu-hoo flu. Sidewalks busy with shabbily dressed M-G-H's, brewery parking lots full.

Apparently, if you're under 35 or so, why, no sweat.

I was out because I needed to visit a friend in the hospital. The hospital, by contrast was eerie. All but the front entrance locked down. There, the very few people entering were being 'screened', I assume. No one else entered when I did. I saw ONE other visitor while I was there. It is a large hospital, and seemed deserted. Spooky, kinda. Like a Twilight zone.

Looks that they have minimized staff. No volunteers, the sundry shops closed.

That absolutely would not surprise me. Just like the governor who signed an executive order allowing her to forbid sales of guns, ammo, gasoline or even food if she determines it necessary, the ruling class is going to push this to see just what they can get away with.

Yeah, it all looks terrible. But so do the foods in a 1980's cookbook I own. I wonder if the photos aren't what is off - the colors look artificial and that makes everything look unappealing.

I have read that food photography is much harder to get right than you would think and I'm inclined to believe that after looking at the photos some people take of their food (home made and restaurant meals) and post online. They'll rave about the heavenly meal they're having and the picture looks like swill.

James Lileks (who wrote a hilarious book on the subject of '50's food) wonders if people drank so many highballs then that it killed their taste buds. (Might also explain traditional British and Irish cooking.)

My theory is that so many people of that generation ate bad food during the Depression and then in the armed services that that probably lowered culinary expectations as well.

My personal guess is to take a similar illness, the seasonal flu, and multiply it by the approximate delta in death rate- 10x, to get 610k. Then, an unknown number of people who will die because of the hospital resource squeeze. So I'm supposing from 610-1000k deaths, provided some kind of drastic measures aren't put in place.

Since this is Milwaukee and not Salt Lake City, the place went bankrupt. Sad because it was a beautiful old building with a lot of character.)

My friend has the original menu from the 1930's hanging in her kitchen. It has items like "Cheese Sandwich - 10 cents" and "Tuna Fish Sandwich - 10 cents" Then you get to the high end entrees "Spaghetti and Meatballs - 75 cents" "Calves Liver - 50 cents"

Growing up in the Puget Sound area, Frank Zappa wasn't played much and got very limited exposure, except for a few FM stations that went from elevator music in the daytime to hard rock at night. These were the end of the '60's and the early to mid '70's.

Instead, there was a lot of English influenced rock and general heavy rock.

It was only at the end of my college days did I run into a guy who had nearly everything Zappa on a cassette tape(s).

And I thought at the phrase "watch out where the huskies go, don't you eat that yellow snow" was a one-off.

If you read some stuff on this, which I did over the past few nights, you'll find examples of just how badly these models can overpredict. One case involving MERS or SARS or some shit in some local area. Model predicted 30K infections. There were 800 actual infections.

Model predicted 1 million Ebola cases in one of those outbreaks. Actual infections were 30K in the area.

And to be fair, there are examples where the models underestimated the infection rates, too.

He is taking his 1.36% of all Microsoft stock and leaving.

I hope that Bill just works with his Foundation that is well funded and helps people nationally and globally, and spends time with Melinda and the kids.

And I really hope he isn't thinking of being the mystery compromise candidate on the 11th ballot of the DNC convention.

He does have as much hubris as Trump, he just shows it differently. NYC in your face, versus Pac NW laid back style, but two peas in a pod as far as they think of their level of success.

I'm getting sick of this "exponential!" shit. Again, amateurs who maybe know a little math, but just know enough to be dangerous.

Simple equations will predict exponential bacterial growth in some simple system. One cell divides, then those divide and the population doubles every so often. That's geometric (discrete)/exponential (continuous) growth.

Now, does anything like that sustain in the real world? Hell now. Finite resources limit the growth. Your simple models and equations don't take that into account. When they do, things get exponentially (heh) more complex and your equations get harder to solve.

And that's exactly what happens with a disease and the number of infected. When the number of infected is a tiny fraction of the population, then the simple SIR model shows exponential growth. That's only the very initial phase.

Now, once the number of infected gets to be a non-trivial fraction of your total population, the exponential slows down.

The infection curve of the SIR mode is a quick ramp-up to a peak, then a flat top and a slow tapering tail.

In Fuzhou, each toilet-goer would be given a piece of toilet paper measuring 70cm long (28 inches) once they have their face recognised.

319 "Journal of the Plague Year," by Daniel Defoe is an exciting read, but it's a NOVEL written 60-70 years after the fact (going by memory), & it's not historically accurate... & I suspect Defoe didn't care.

Now if you're interested, and it might good to bone up a little on this, to be able to temper some of the hair on fire shit.

Here's Wiki's elementary treatment of the simple epidemic dynamic models:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Compartmental_models_in_epidemiology

(remove line feed)

Now, note there are several different models. The first one is the SIR model, which is what is applicable here.

Note what you have. Three sets of coupled, non-linear differential equations in three variables, all functions of time. Now, if you know a little math, you know the "non-linear" part means "hard to solve". There are no analytic solutions (someone apparently came up with a closed form analytic solution to the SIR equations around 2014, but it's a very complicated mess), so only numerical solutions are possible.

Here is a link to the graphic showing the form of a typical solution:

https://preview.tinyurl.com/yx3m7pdn

Blue curve is S, the susceptibles, the people who haven't caught the disease. The green curve is the number of actively infected people. The Red curve is the number who have recovered (or died) and are no longer infectious.

Pay attention to the green curve. That's the infection curve.

Note the little initial piece of it near zero. That's the exponential phase. Then note it quickly ramps up to a peak, then slowly declines with a long tail.

The final red curve number tells you the total number of people who were infected but recovered (or died). Note interestingly that not all people will get it.

That is the "curve" you hear everyone talking about, the one you want to "flatten"

Old cookbooks.

I have an old paperback set of The Joy of Cooking. Growing up, it was my mom's primary cookbook and she had the hard cover version, tattered and spattered.

I just checked, the original copyright was 1931. My paperback version print date was 1974.

It still has in wild game recipes, and how to clean freshly killed game. How to clean pheasants and ducks, rabbits, and squirrels all have an accompanying simple drawing how to pull the skin/fur off properly and where to cut, and other specifics about handling wild game that nobody would see in a modern cookbook.

They also have tips for bear, woodchuck, raccoon, opossum, muskrat, beaver as well as of course those North American standbys - venison, moose and elk.

For wild boar, they reference the suckling pig recipe for young boar, or the moist heat process for pork, if it is older. Both of those recipes are in different sections.

Oh, and they point out in the first sentence of Beaver, to ONLY USE YOUNG BEAVER. It's the first sentence, so it must be really important.

383 If a politician pushes people to quarantine/work from home there is no cost to them. If things get bad he was the one looking out for you and if things don't get bad well, that's because he was looking out for you!


right it's another take on The Forgotten Man problem that Amity Shales spoke of.

this situation is really worrying me b/c if they are wrong (which they definitely are) on this being some horrible deadly plaque they are just going to say "well it was no big deal b/c of the sheltering in place thing" and then this 2-3 weeks of isolation of EVERYONE will be SOP

There were 10 if us and none of us knew of anyone or any family that was sick. So we all called our kids and sibs to find put if anyone knew of anyone sick. No one could come up with anyone who even had a cold. We went through nearly 100 people in every area of the country, and couldn't find anyone sick. Yes, we're all fairly healthy but we're all over 29. But we all heard the same story, there was panic shopping, everyone had 5 years worth of toilet paper, and the hate for the MSM seems to be starting.

402 Zappa was a musical genius, you can't argue that.
He appeared on the Steve Allen show (before it was the Tonight Show) playing a tune on bicycle spokes.
He had an anti-authoritarian streak a mile wide, mostly due to an obscenity bust early on in his career, in which a deputy hired him to record a naughty song, then busted him for producing obscene works. Classic entrapment.
His son is touring and performing his works.

420 233 Scary horror movies:

The ORIGINAL "Night of the Living Dead," filmed in Pittsburgh for $2.37, in 1966 (I think it was).

I'm not readily scared, either... not by a movie.

The one sequel where everybody was panicking in a TV newsroom was pretty cool, too... plus it provided a great deal of vicarious pleasure, too...seeing all those azaleas throwing down their headphones, taking off their high-heeled shoes, & running for their lives. LOVED it!
Posted by: mnw



Filmed in Cranberry Township and Evans City, just north of Pittsburgh. (takes W.PA nerd glasses off). I can say that I had a relative in that movie. My Great-great-grandmother is buried at the Evans City cemetery. She was buried there in 1941, so she was in Night of the Living Dead. Well, under it anyway.

424 The thing about music is that it strikes everyone in a far more personal vein than any other artform. It strikes right at the center of the lizard brain in all humans.

There are artists and genres of music that I would not hesitate to share, because they really speak to the emotional center of the human brain.

There are other artists, genres and even songs that mean a lot to me, but I would never expect to mean anything to anyone, ever. Do I love them less?

No, I just find them a little more difficult to justify. Actually, that's a lie, I don't try to justify them to anyone. I like them, and that's that.

I will NEVER be asked to be the DJ at a Horde Party, and I'm OK with that.

George Carlin had the same message over 20 years ago, when he told the crowd about how as a kid, he swam in the Hudson River, and how to build a strong immune system (also linked a few nights ago)

Because it's a cold, and I'm nonplussed.

Ridiculous, silly shit.

I'm going to take full advantage of this idiocy, though. My company's planning to give us all more or less open ended WFH privileges, as opposed to my usual every-other-day deal.

And airfares are rock-bottom.

I'ma take the kids and old lady to my folks' place in the Great Smokys, kick dem feet up, and pop open an ice-cold beer, while all these people act a fool. Even though it tastes like shit, I might make the first one a Corona, just to toast my good fortune.

Same thing happened with "The Shining." The 1988 Dutch-French film was one of the most terrifying movies I have ever seen (and it had no gore whatsoever).

The director then trashed his own movie by making a Hollywood version (with a "happy" ending) a few years later. It sucked.

It was decided that it would be unseemly for the Pope to flee Rome as the Plague approached. Wouldn't look good. So... they put him in front of a roaring fire, in the middle of a very hot Roman summer. It worked. Rats & fleas don't LIKE fire.

They didn't know WHY it worked. Somebody just thought, "Well, it couldn't hurt."

Save for several bowls of the large specialty instant ramen/noodles, only a few packs of ramen were to be found.

556 Can't do science anymore?

Not long ago I read an account of some researchers trying to isolate and identify the 1918 strain, to do some more analysis on it and figure out what to try next time. It's not easy to research a virus that swept through the world over a hundred years ago, and people tried hard to avoid and get rid of.

Point is, the reason I heard about the research was that it was described in one of those shrimp-on-a-treadmill Golden Fleece lists. That university was going to be burned, and the earth salted. Now, more or less all of a sudden, we'd like to know why nobody pursued that research with more urgency.

See what I'm saying?

562 In the late 1950s, there was a series of joke books that went under the "Sexteen" label - Over Sexteen, More Over Sexteen, Sexteen in Color and so on - which had what used to be called "tired businessman" jokes about harridan wives, sexy secretaries, cheating partners and so on along with cartoons of scantily clad young women doing what scantily clad women do.

In any event, one cartoon that I always liked showed a newlywed couple in their honeymoon suite. The stacked bride was primping herself in front of a mirror while, behind her, the groom sat in his pajamas on the edge of the bed, a fearful look in his eye, because his new wife - in addition to her sexy nightgown - was wearing a shiny new set of spurs.

568 Ok, since I'm dead, here's my Zappa story.

Growing up, I had a buncha friends, we'd play football, baseball, some b-ball, most of the guys I hung out with were older, some the same age, none younger.

I'm 15 years old, and I find myself at a party on a Saturday afternoon in a 3rd floor apartment. The guy who lived there ( his fam was outta town) was celebrating the purchase of a POUND of pot.

Zappa was BLARING on the stereo. And I mean BLARING. Someone called the cops. I looked out the window, and there were cop cars EVERYWHERE !
Fortunately, one of the guys there was the son of a famous local cop, and went downstairs, introduced himself, (he was a pretty personable guy) and managed to cool the cops out if the music got turned down/off.

That was my introduction to Zappa.

Italy and China do have one thing in common: they both seem to think the way to treat the disease is to lock the diseased in their homes along with anyone else who happens to be there, and then wait for them to die rather than attempting treatment.
So they 'save' most of their population by sacrificing anyone near an outbreak. Don't think there aren't people here who wish to do the same thing. The accounting chick at my church said as much, and it was all I could do to not remind her that God gave us the second amendment to deal with that sort of attitude.

628 If Biden refuses to debate Trump it's like a forfeit. It doesn't matter what the reason is, or what the media excuses are. An estimated 80,000,000 people watched the first debate in 2016.

What percentage of voters who were "undecided" watched at least part of one of the debates? How about, uh, I would guess, 90+% of them?

Scott Adams needs to tune his prediction model. You can't beat an incumbent without debating, I don't care who your VP is. People are not going to vote for someone they are not allowed to see take on the most basic challenge of all. It will not happen in this or any universe.

Italy's problems have nothing to do with quarantining, but all to do with the demographics of the first hit, and apparently how bad their hospital system ended up being. To my knowledge they did NOT lock people in their houses to die or something dumb like that.

636 Before I go, my report on the whoo-hu virus panic as observed in The City today.

Picked up pizzas around noon. Place was mostly empty. Servers talked about how slow it was. Carry-out seemed to be brisk.

At the purveyor of adult beverages, I decided to buy beer which I never do, but, pizza. I feel old - it all looked expensive. Best buy was Tecate, so I reached for that, then thought, I'd like the amber Tecate. That space on the shelf was vacant!!! The horror!

The checker said yesterday's sales had been like it was before Christmas. Well, at least stocking up on booze is understandable. Didn't see any empty shelves there, though.

The pizza was for a party at my mom's for my granddaughter's 1st birthday. Her brother is almost 2 and brilliant.

Ol' grampa me was taking a catnap when Grandson slapped me on the chest to make me go over and play the piano with him. Definitely one of my top two greatest moments in music. He's cool, no banging on the keys, and even carefully lowered the lid when we were done.

They (and 2 hours on the road) wore me out.

Guess I'll go now.

It's normally overlooked that Italy has a lot of direct airline traffic with China, and a lot of Chinese "guest workers" in the precise Northern area affected.

Fortunately, the senior Area 51 researcher (played by Bill Bob Thornton) has been working on quick reaction development of anti-virals using miniscule viral samples. Unfortunately, his system has not quite been perfected and the anti-viral they develop and distribute in an abundance of caution (but without adequate testing) turns out to have some rather serious side-effects! These side effects only show up after Congress (as part of their special medical insurance program) gets the shots before anyone else!

It looks like this is one of the RNI inhibitor drugs, in short it prevents duplication of the RNA strand as part of the virus replication.

This is a very big thing.

The other testing vaccine is one that tries to get the immune system to not pay attention to the receptor keys on the surface of the virus - those are what look like mushrooms studding the surface of the cell in the micrographs- and has the body pay attention to the stem instead. The head of the "mushroom" changes regularly under immune response, but the stem is more stable

We start with three points;
1; Nursing home deaths by the the Wuflu;
2; The aids time concept of viral load (I prefer re-load) connected with aids death;
3; The effective functioning of an ICU tent. New air hard in and infected air hard out.
I propose a name for a theory these connections; stewing in the juices.

Fresh air in (and maybe water and sunshine) allows your systems to adjust; so you don't reload the virus. Does the common sized and energy tight house have sufficient volume of air? For two people? Comrades please don't get quarantined.

It's said he didn't like to use drugs at all. This put him decidedly in a different spot than many of his contemporaries. His pad in Laurel Canyon was a revolving door for all kinds of people, he hung out with some strange cats.

She didn't win. Trump went in with an overarching strategy and he pulled it off with an incredibly aplomb. My mouth was agape pretty much the whole time at how amazing he was.

Debates aren't about who scores the most points. I mean, the slam dunks matter but even those aren't necessarily the deciding factor. Debates are about whose message is better, and who gets their message across better. Trump had a very clear message, he hit three or four indelibly strong points over and over and over. Even though I expected him to do well, he astounded me.

708 Before I sign off, in spite of what some retreads (banned but not forgotten because they keep showing up under different names) say, this current Whuhan/Covid19 flu is serious business. Its growth has been exponential where ignored - 20 % jump in cases from one day to the next in Italy, before they got serious about it. Just finished reading how Israel is dealing with it. These guys are not stupid and have some of the best scientists and geneticists in the world. They decided that for now the best thing is to close the country down until they get a handle on it. Education sector, shops, restaurants. Spanish flu decimated world population. Ninety yers later scientists figured out why - a group of genes that weakened victim's breathing apparatus (bronchial tubes). No panic, but not something to ignore and dismiss.

I'm an exception then. I don't always think my candidate won the debate. In fact I often grimace and cringe and my candidate when warranted.

Trump won the debates. It's fairly indisputable, as it's a good chunk of the reason he won the election.

She was essentially the incumbent *and* a known quantity. He was unknown as a political persona other than what the media had repeatedly told everyone. Anyone who didn't decide based on the media's portrayal was watching, and curious. He HAD to get up and sell himself as a better choice than she was, and he did.

Along with the statement "THE UNITED STATES LOVES ITALY!".

Weird - fine, great - but kinda odd. Presumably just a show of support during Italy's rather difficult time at the moment.

The larger demo teams, who use smaller training jets, do make a nice visual impact with their large, smoke-on maneuvers. Snow Birds, Tricolore, Red Arrows. There's even a small US privately-funded team, the Patriots, that uses Czech L-39 jets, their 5-plane maneuvers are also nice.

oxycodone has little effect on me.

in the past I have been guilty of taking megadoses of ibuprofen for aches and pains. I'm talking one or two grams at a time. Probably why I ended up with kidney stones in the first place.

As I understand it (and I could be wrong) it's okay to use fake food if the fake is not the food you're actually selling.

For example, you're selling hot dogs, and have a Fourth of July picnic-themed ad with bowls of ice cream in the background. It'd be okay to substitute colored mashed potatoes for the ice cream, but the hot dogs would have to be real (well, as real as hot dogs ever are).

766 730 Is Tylenol superior to Aspirin for fever reduction in equivalent dosages?
Posted by: Common Tater at March 15, 2020 12:57 AM (QJIMk)

no, in my experience Tylenol is much, much less effective. I had to tell the night time hospital staff that once when my father had a fever going past 103, and the tylenol compounds they were giving him were ineffective. I told them "Switch to aspirin! You're going to let him die if you don't!" And they were "well the doctor didn't put that on his list when he went home tonight" and them me: "Well dammit wake that doctor up and tell him to do it now!!!! (it was 2 am) His patient won't make it til morning if he doesn't!!!"

so they called him, he said "oh yeah that's a good idea" and the fever broke within 30 minutes. Aspirin is even better at fever than ibuprofen, although ibrupofen is better at inflammation.

honestly, I think Tylenol is by far the most useless of the three. Also, this episode demonstrated why, when someone you care about is in the hospital, a close friend or relative needs to be around at ALL times, because we're the only ones who are gonna catch the big fuckups that happen in the middle of the night.

771 SMH that's spectacular about the reading (from real books!). That and they're being outside a lot (translation: being kids).

I know there are private schools that strictly limit use of computers, which sounds like a great idea.

Of course a society that produced 4-yr undergrads with the actual education of a 1950 4-yr undergrad would be wonderfully unrecognizable today. Maybe even a 1950 high school grad.

Wonderful. So wonderful.

I read to my sons every night. Chronicles of Narnia, The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings.

It was a thing.

Bedtime! And I would carry one boy in a blanket, Sant Claus style and dump him into his bed. And then the same for the other son. then I would read a chapter or two.

Getting all nostalgic now. I love my sons; they are good men. But I miss those little guys that I could carry around like a sack of oats.

785 What I do is usually read a few online recipes, and try to get a sense of what the basic ratio or proportions are, and avoid the "I substituted asparagus yogurt for the butter and it tastes just fine!" type of recipes. This is one from Chowhound:

3 cups rolled oats (not instant)
3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup small-dice dried fruit
1/2 cup coarsely chopped raw or toasted nuts or seeds
-----

I tried one batch with butter, since I was out of veggie oil. Another batch with bacon grease. Both are excellent. Honey and Brown sugar work fine. I tried Mollasses and that's good, too. Nutmeg, Dried Orange peel, freeze dried coffee...

Pineapple, Cranberries, M&Ms. I roasted in a cast iron pan. I've found there is nothing hardly better than cast iron for baking or frying because it holds the heat. The recipe takes about 20 minutes or maybe 30 ... keep an eye on it, it takes forever, and then Bam! It's done. A nice darkening.

As I understand it (and I could be wrong) it's okay to use fake food if the fake is not the food you're actually selling.

For example, you're selling hot dogs, and have a Fourth of July picnic-themed ad with bowls of ice cream in the background. It'd be okay to substitute colored mashed potatoes for the ice cream, but the hot dogs would have to be real (well, as real as hot dogs ever are).

Similarly, it's okay to use fake ice in a booze ad, but not okay to use fake ice in an ice ad (or maybe even an ice-maker ad).

Flour and oatmeal attract a bug called "pantry moths." They look like moths, but they're grain eaters. The way to keep them out is to seal your containers.

790 Common Tater, gracias. Funny, I do exactly the same thing for many recipes - peruse the web, and often end up doing a hybrid that appeals to me or corresponds to ingredients on hand.

And I love the comment about "asparagus yogurt" substitution.

Somewhere - here? - not long ago, somebody linked a sarcastic blog essay on this truly annoying and idiotic pattern of online recipes being buried at the end of incredibly boring, banal, or pretentious little essays. Captured it perfectly. I'll typically hit "Page Dn" 3/4 times before even starting to read when one of those recipes is on the screen.

795 730 Is Tylenol superior to Aspirin for fever reduction in equivalent dosages?
Posted by: Common Tater at March 15, 2020 12:57 AM (QJIMk)


No, not really. What you want to take depends pretty much on what risks you are willing to live with. Aspirin will cause upset stomach in some people, and if you have some problem that makes you prone to bleeding it can make bleeding more likely. You wouldn't want to take aspirin if you have an ulcer, or if you're over 65. If you take too much asprin, or too much for too long, it can cause ulcers or other types of bleeding.

Tylenol probably won't upset your stomach, but if your liver isn't functioning properly, or you're taking other medications that affect the liver (like alcohol or statins), you probably want to go easy on the Tylenol. The big knock on Tylenol is there isn't a whole lot of air between the recommended dosage and an overdose, so if you're the kind of person who doesn't keep track you want to be a little more diligent about what you took and when than is your wont.

For both drugs if you take as directed no longer than directed, and you're generally healthy, they're about the same in terms of effectiveness, and you won't have problems.

Canned foods need inspection. Once in a while a can will just wig out in extended storage. The store brand el-cheapo tomato based soups will eat through the can. Tomatos are acidic. Store brand holds up, but you will taste the can when it gets a few years old.

But your general point stands. As now seen in cases beyond quick recounting, clear and serious violations of law by senior officials and others with clear guidelines might not be pursued, at all.

Posted by: rhomboid

That's part of the treatment once you get them. My mom had them, and we had to:

- throw away all food & containers that had them.
- take EVERYTHING out of the pantry (that was a ton of stuff).
- set out the little traps.
- wait a few days as the bugs accumulated. They worked!
- wipe down all the shelves and floor with a bleach solution.
- wipe down the remaining food containers.
- finally, replace the grains but put everything in a sealed container. That means you buy a giant box of Cheerios, you put it into a plastic container. Glass jars with lids aren't good enough; you've got to put a layer of plastic wrap over the jar first. No cardboard boxes of oats, no paper bags of flour, etc.

I might be mistaken about something -- I vaguely recall forms that were supposed to be signed, attestations that were supposed to be made, that never were -- and it turned out there were no prescribed consequences. Hillary could rightly say she didn't violate such-and-such an agreement because she never agreed, and that crook Patrick Kennedy never saw to it that she did.

But it's vague, and it came in such an avalanche of crimes that never got prosecuted. One of Cheryl Mills's transcripts with Judicial Watch actually had something like "I don't know why we didn't, oh how I wish we had." Similarly, Huma's testimony was a shrug and "Ask my boss." I don't think Hillary was ever dragged into Judicial Watch, although supposedly she will be, at which time her amnesia will be worse than Joe Bye-den's.

832 ..I might be mistaken about something -- I vaguely recall forms that were supposed to be signed, attestations that were supposed to be made, that never were -- and it turned out there were no prescribed consequences. Hillary could rightly say she didn't violate such-and-such an agreement because she never agreed, and that crook Patrick Kennedy never saw to it that she did.

But it's vague, and it came in such an avalanche of crimes that never got prosecuted. One of Cheryl Mills's transcripts with Judicial Watch actually had something like "I don't know why we didn't, oh how I wish we had." Similarly, Huma's testimony was a shrug and "Ask my boss." I don't think Hillary was ever dragged into Judicial Watch, although supposedly she will be, at which time her amnesia will be worse than Joe Bye-den's.

Unfortunately, "Voyage" didn't have many babes on it. The first season was more cold war type stuff, and had a few femme fatale types, but they were fully clothed.

Later seasons went to "monster of the week" themes, and I think the show hold the record for no women featured in a whole season.

874 Story

Situation

Solution

There was something in Mama Miklos neighborhood. Many cars.

The drive was effective blocked-one car parked on the street opposite the driveway, cars parked intimately close to the driveway. Six inches into the driveway.

Mama Miklos is Old Lady, drives Big Old Buick.


So.

Miklosian Solution #1

1/a-Miklos parks own car four (4) inches from front bumper of most offending car.

1/b-Miklos parks Buick four (4) inches from rear bumper of Chief Offender Example to be Made of Car

*About two hours*


"Are those your cars? I'm blocked in. Could move one?"


Miklos At His Best-

"No. I live here and can park as I damn well please. I can block my own driveway."

"So those are your cars? Can you move one?"

"People like you aggravate me so much I need a Whisky Drink. So I am drinking this one."


"But you can move a car?"

"No. I will not Drink and Drive, and it is a criminal offense for you to ask or allow me to."

When you look at the number of deaths from the H1N1 virus a few years ago, and the lack of 'oh my gawd, we're all going to die so it's time to panic!!!' reporting, this whole nonsense is designed to stop Trump. It's a two-fer because it stops Trump from holding campaign rallies as well as allowing Plugs Biden not to campaign and make a greater fool of himself.

I also like a comment I read which stated that the media is really pissed off at Trump for calling them out as fake news. So they got their little journo-list lock-step marching orders to say, 'Fake news? Okay, take this!' reporting. For me, this is the media going into their attack mode against Trump to show him (and us Deplorables) the power they still possess to the point of making people fight over friggin' toilet paper in the store aisles.

The idea being to flatten the curve, to avoid a crush of hospital admissions to ICUs, there are only so many beds. The interviews with Italian doctors and nurses sounded pretty dire. That's not a hoax is it?

If "nothing happens" here is that because of or in spite of all the draconian measures? I dunno. You can bet how the 5th column will try to frame it.

I only got 1/2 of what I ordered, of course TP and a few other things I'm almost out of, were not there.

Look at the power being exerted in Democrat-run shitholes. Cutting off gun sales, closing down schools and businesses, tanking the economy. Lefties don't give a shit about the economy except when it's going good if a Republican is president. Then they have to stop that from happening. If some Democrat was president today, the media would not have the same tone of BeerVirus reporting -- at all. They would not be screaming racism if the borders were closed under a Democrat president, that's for damn sure. They wouldn't be talking about a lack of diversity in the president's response team, either.

The Cabal are using this crisis too good to waste to stop the populist nationalist movements taking hold across the globe, Trump, Brexit, Eastern Europe, Brazil, et.al. Calling it the Wuhan Virus is racist and xenophobic? Give me a friggin' break.

915 There seems to be a booming market for on line groceryat the store I go to. There can be 5 gathers going around when I go at any time. Wife wondered if they get first choice but told her they go get items off the shelf like anyone else.

916 I've been ordering online and pickup or delivery (groceries) for a while.

It does kind of boggle that they can't keep better control of "out of stock" but as a practical matter fhey send shoppers out to pick your order off the shelves like anyone else would. If the Zombies sweep through picking up the TP....

Posted by: Common Tater at March 15, 2020 05:52 AM (QJIMk)

917 Skip, and they ask if you'd like a substitute product if the one you order is not available. I chose not to do that, which may or may not be why I didn't get everything. But I'm guessing it's because those particular shelves were bare.

Posted by: My life is insanity at March 15, 2020 05:52 AM (Z/jzm)

918 Yesterday first thing the store was quite cleaned out except fresh vegetables, on way home stoped at one out a ways andc it was about normal though no tp either.
I think tp is only made in Wuhan China.

919 It's a pretty big thing at all the stores here. Before it was an online thing I thought it would be a good service to take to the elderly. When I was considering what I could do after I realized I could no longer do sewing alterations as a living, I gave that some serious thought as a business.

Posted by: My life is insanity at March 15, 2020 05:57 AM (Z/jzm)

920 Rick, I agree with every bit of that. Except leftists seem preternaturally (whatever that means) prone to going off the rails early, getting impatient, writing tell-all books outlining their evil plans, etc.

If you plan on sending your political opponents to gulags amd re-educafion camps, you're supposed to confiscate all the guns first. Now everybody has seen the mask slip. They have a lot of power and are dangerous, but they are way more exposed than ever.

See the flurry of 'red flag' laws recently passed in Democrat-controlled shitholes.

They killed a guy in Maryland while he slept last night serving one of those warrants.

I give it THREE DAYS

people here are extremely grumpy with our totalitarian Governor WOLF already

How about his great plan to close the state stores? Only in Delco, Montco, and Bucks. 3 days from now. Why don't they do it immediately if the threat is so great?

925 Again to reiterate, 50 million Americans get the flu, this is a particularly virulent strain of the flu, and 10's of thousands die in the US alone.

The H1N1 outbreak of 2009 killed 13k people in the US, I don't remember massive nationwide quarantines of efforts to tank the global economy.

These outbreaks happen all of the time and kill thousands, SARS, MERS, H1N1, Avian flu, etc.

I don't remember tanking the global economy over them.

This is bullshit, this is intentional.

We all wondered what the Deep State's next move would be to take down Trump, never in my wildest dreams could I imagine that whipping up a panic over the flu and tanking the global economy would be it.

926 I saw that some state parks in New Mexico are closing the campgrounds, something something to prevent transmission, another fishing hole somewhere etc.

Shades of Barky and closing the WWII memorial.

That really fucking pissed me off.

929 @927
They are creative because their are no checks on them, they can pretty much do whatever they want.


Every day they they go unpunished and unchecked is a day closer to the US becoming a fascist socialist shit hole.

932 I'm wondering of this lock down goes beyond 30 days will the MSM run out of ignorant , insane things to say? Or do they have an emergence supply that will get them through this?


I fear the latter.

Same here. I figured another impeachment fail was out of the question and all the other phony scandals just weren't holding people attention for more than a few minutes. They had to find something people could not ignore, even those despicable deplorables.
