Who runs for HOA governing positions? I'll tell you who, bottom feeding scum sucking power hungry Nazi scolds. miserable excuses for human beings, that's who.

The always quotable H.L. Mencken once observed, "Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats." For some residents of one unnamed Tennessee neighborhood, that time is now.

A Reddit user went to the legal advice thread with a question about being evicted for working from his condo along with 24 other "offenders."

The HOA complaint -- which was verified as legit by thread moderators -- says, "It has come to our attention that you are in violation of Article VII, Section 8 of our Bylaws" which state that "Commercial business may not be maintained or transacted on any Lot or in any residential unit." As a result, "we will be invoking section II, Article 4 of the Bylaws, which allows the Board to foreclose on any property that is in violation." The HOA president demands, "You must vacate the premises by April 30, 2020."

Speaking of boredom and isolation Astronaut prick extraordinaire Scott Kelly tells us how to put up with isolation.

Being stuck at home can be challenging. When I lived on the International Space Station for nearly a year, it wasn’t easy. When I went to sleep, I was at work. When I woke up, I was still at work. Flying in space is probably the only job you absolutely cannot quit.

But I learned some things during my time up there that I’d like to share — because they are about to come in handy again, as we all confine ourselves at home to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. Here are a few tips on living in isolation, from someone who has been there.

We have to get CBD's Sunday Food Thread out. Preach it!

HOW PEOPLE WHO SUCK AT COOKING ARE SURVIVING QUARANTINE
Desperate for sustenance, quarantiners who are unable to cook are relying on microwavable macaroni and Lean Cuisines

“I hate cooking,” exclaims Michael, 27. When California, his state of residence, enacted a stay-at-home order in response to the spreading coronavirus, he frantically stockpiled frozen dinners. “I usually get food at work on weekdays,” he explains. “We have a fully stocked kitchen, catering or a $15 work expense for lunches. On weekends, I have some basic stuff in my kitchen, like bananas, milk and cereal, but I mostly eat out. I get brunch and dinner with friends, so I hardly cook.”


Good Lord!

Not 1. Not 2. Not 3. But 4 magnets up the old schnoz. Genius Award Winner.

An Australian astrophysicist has been admitted to hospital after getting four magnets stuck up his nose in an attempt to invent a device that stops people touching their faces during the coronavirus outbreak.

Dr Daniel Reardon, a research fellow at a Melbourne university, was building a necklace that sounds an alarm on facial contact, when the mishap occurred on Thursday night.

The 27 year-old astrophysicist, who studies pulsars and gravitational waves, said he was trying to liven up the boredom of self-isolation with the four powerful neodymium magnets.

“I have some electronic equipment but really no experience or expertise in building circuits or things,” he told Guardian Australia.

54 I agree wholeheartedly with Astronaut Kelley....there is nothing about isolation and confinement to be alarmed about. Why, lets go to the scientific literature on the subject, so we may all be reassured: for there are countless studies in the literature of exploration about explorers cooped up for long periods of time, largely isolated from others, to help us understand the lack of risk. To help cheer us all up as we wait wait wait wait for the Arctic ice to thaw/Chinese virus to go away, here is an excerpt from "Bold Endeavours: Lessons from Polar and Space Exploration":

"Chapter 1: Scientific Concern about Behavioral Effects of Isolation and Confinment

Although people have lived and worked under conditions of isolation and confinement for countless generations, only since the 1950s has there been a scientific interest in understanding the problems associated with human adjustment to those conditions. For the most part, this interest can be traced to two events: (1) the recognition that isolation and confinement played integral roles in the "brainwashing" of prisoners of war during the Korean War, and (2) the development of a highly disruptive schizophrenia by a member of the team that was sent to Antarctica to prepare for the 1957-58 International Geophysical Year (IGY) program."

See...nothing to worry about in this time of self-quarantining! Nothing at all....but I'd get a little antsy if you see the roomate eyeing the axe a bit too much....

101 So, I will tell the tale of my lost son.

Wife called me at work and said "SonH and doggie are missing, I have called the Emergency Services and they are on their way here!"
I dropped everything and made it home in record time.
When I arrived at home the Fire Department Team was there as were Son and Prinz the Viszla. The lead search guy said "Sir, we found your son, after a bit of searching, but we couldn't get anywhere near him because of the dog going into protective mode, so we just lead them home, and it was all good!"

I loved that dog so much, a part of me died when he passed!

Still a classical newb. But Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante gets me every time. Still pisses me off that I had to bail on it being performed with a guest violinist who I think is absolutely great, but I had the kind of cold that would have meant a lot of sound effects from my seat.

134 Murphy (Cretinous Authoritarian Freak - NJ) referred to the DHS guidelines for essential businesses/services in his statement on the gun store thing, according to the article graciously linked for me yesterday by CBD.

In his (2nd) and now full backtrack, the LA County sheriff did the same. (he has also been kicked off the emergency operation in LA County by the board of supervisors, quite the move, though it may have to do more with pre-existing state of war between these parties unrelated to the current crisis)

I had speculated that LA idiot's first back-down might have been to avoid damaging legal precedent when SAF or CRPA or NRA brought a suit - county counsel advised he back off his initial announcement, probably saw no legal basis for it.

192 In recent years I've been struck by the fact that every holiday (and fake, commercial holiday) now features about 478 kinds of chocolate items in the candy section at stores, and about 6 kinds of everything else. I get Valentines being mostly chocolate (and the sugary little hearts), and Easter of course has always been chocolate-centric, but it's become ridiculous. Not to mention the price of chocolate seems to have become pretty high (that global cacao die-out or whatever?).

So during my shopping adventure on Saturday, I remembered to check the seasonal section. Looking only for the classic Hershey milk chocolate eggs in the foil wrappers. And - none!

For years I can't find anything *but* chocolate during holiday seasons, and when I look for chocolate, it's gone.

I'm going to email Jim Acosta to see if he can ask the president about this at the briefing. Seems like we, as a nation, are better than this.

It's funny to read, but I'm pretty sure the expectation is you won't be visiting the liquor store every day. The package store on US military bases used to have similarly large limits. They wanted you to be able to buy enough for a month, or to have a large barbecue, but not enough that you could get rich reselling to civilians.

200 I learned to cook in Boy Scout Camp when I was young. We had to do all our own cooking (Camp Geronimo near Payson, Az) and each troop would plan out their meals and pick up raw materials from the commissary. (this is where I learned that I really hated Bisquick pancakes, so I'd always do scrambled eggs). In fact, this is when I learned that I really do like to eat meals that taste good, and I hate eating burnt stuff that tastes like crap, and I could figure out how to make things that I would like, and I was better at it than any of the other guys there. So I ended up taking charge of the cooking, since I cared about it more than anyone else seemed to.

259 Liking to cook must have been some recessive gene that surfaced in me, since neither of my parents were very good at it. Mom was ok at very basic things - at least she knew enough to take the pizza out of the box before putting it in the oven - but that was about it. Dad was legendary for liking the idea of grilling; but he would always do it while he was watching sports, and then the 2 minute offense would come on and he'd forget about everything else, and that day's meal would be burnt to a crisp. Over and over again, sheesh. When I visit their house, I insist on cooking as a gift to them, but also as a gift to me.

I would love to see the Mogollon Rim again, it's been too long! We would sit up late at night in the woods and try to tell each other good, scary stories about the Mogollon Monster. Best one ever was one night when I was telling the story of the Monster to a tent full of 11 and 12 year old scouts for the first time, and I had set up a signal with my buddy; when I gave a shout and shut the lantern off, he was to give a scream and howl and tear through the back of tent.

My mom is Italian and utterly beautiful, was a model when young. I swear she doesn't eat, much less cook. and my dad was in the military until I was in HS and after that was in private practice so essentially never around, either ate at the base or on the quick at the hospital I guess. I cooked for me and my brother, and my brother cooked a bit too, we cooked for ourselves. He's a better cook than I am for some things, other things I do better I can do complex baking, things that take time and many ingredients. he does planning and timing better than I.

281 People like prepared foods, processed box crap, because it is convenient. While the ingredient quality was never particularly stellar, in the past it was at least reasonably tasty and nutritious. Sort of. If you squint, and discount the preservatives and sodium.

Anyhoo back to the story. Turns out that the general tsoas chicken and Peking duck were all actually goose. So what you ask? Why ole Scrooge bought Bob cratchett the biggest goose in town one christmas. Well turns out geese are a nuisance animal where I live and they owners were going down to the river at night and snaring them and using them in the restaurant. That's not what got them shut down though... ....... they got caught slaughtering and cleaning them in the restaurant kitchen.........ooops.

335 Bring enough water to cover the eggs to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Remove pan from heat to let it settle down a second. Crack eggs and carefully drop them in the water. For reasons unknown to science, when eggs are plentiful, they will never break yokes even when dropped from afar. When you're getting low, it is inevitable that one will break no matter how gently the egg is handled.

Anyhoo, then place the pan back on the heat, and drop the bread in the toaster. When the toast (or better - English Muffin) pops, remove that, slather dairy butter on to a level your cardiologist would never approve. It takes a little judgment, but the eggs should be appropriately done at this point, maybe another minute.

Another way is when using an electric skillet to cook bacon, is to crack the eggs in a small amount of grease remaining (you save bacon grease right? Nod your head "yes") and pour about a 1/4 cup of water or milk in the pan, set the heat to 250 and cover. This will sort of steam/poach the eggs to a medium runny yolk about the time the toast pops.

Sprinkle generously with coarse grain sea salt.

Yikes!!! Even with non-stick pans, turn the heat up at the beginning, put in about 1/8 a stick of butter, as soon as it melts turn the heat down to about 1/2 and then put your egg in. I prefer over easy style, it's faster, and I don't like the white to be slimy. You can still get a soft yolk if you pull it off the heat fast after the flip. Also, salt and pepper while it's cooking, so it gets down into the egg.

There's rules, and then there's power.

When police started enforcing the various orders, that was ballgame. This stuff will only end when the various mayors and governors say it ends - and not one second before. They seized the power, used it, and by doing so dictated the rules of the game.

They do not have these emergency powers.

Court precedence allows the government to quarantine people who are actually ill with a communicable disease. The court record for quarantining people who have been exposed to a communicable disease is more mixed... some courts allowed it and some didn't. There is NO precedence for the forced isolation of an entire non-ill population.

However, where you might have a legal challenge is that quarantine laws apply to sick people and people who have come in contact with sick people. Quarantining the entire population is new - it's not something they did in 1918.

390 This will be how things are done for now on, I believe. There will be no push-back, as long as the store shelves are moderately stocked. I'm guessing we'll do this every few years or so.


I'm worried about this. Because we can't do this every three to five years when a novel (often corona!) virus pops up and our "flu season" becomes more severe.

we cannot.

AM HOPING that after we realize how much tax revenue was lost, how many businesses were lost, how many jobs are lost, etc etc... we will make sure we DON'T let this happen again. I was okay with "15 to flatten the curve" but it turned out t be BULLCRAP. utter bullcrap. no one is talking about mortality rates anymore. we're not hitting even the more conservative mortality estimates and it makes no difference b/c NYC is getting hit so we all get to sit in our houses.

391 Oven poaching eggs is easy. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grab a muffin pan. Place 1 tablespoon water in each muffin space. Crack an egg into that space (you can break the egg into a small dish and then slip into the pan if you wish). Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes. Start on the low end and add a minute if the egg does not appear to be firm enough. Remove from oven, loosen with spatula to plate.

I was reading about this "emergency powers" stuff. It is not really spelled out explicitly in the Constitution, nor of the states, nor in law.

When there is a time of emergency, the executive usually just declares it is assuming emergency powers of whatever form it thinks necessary.

The track record of the courts is generally to stay out of it until the emergency is over, then come in and say, "well, that was okay, but this wasn't", etc,etc.

Look at some of the shit Woodrow Wilson did in WWI. Like locking up people for protesting the war and criticizing Wilson. It happened.

Now remember Oliver Wendall Holmes, Jr's famous "fire in a crowded theater" line that is oft cited even today by idiots who don't understand things?

He wrote that line in an opinion upholding Wilson's ban on speech criticizing the draft. Holmes considered that the equivalent of shouting fire in a crowded theater.

Any time you hear some idiot cite that, remind him of the context.

433 You are supposed to quarantine the sick, not the healthy. Far fewer people to quarantine, and the community at large generally supports the matter.

Portland in 1918 did aggressively enforce social distancing - movie theaters and nightclubs were closed, there were strict limits on how many people could ride on a streetcar (with people onboard to enforce the limits), and restaurants had to leave every other table empty. They didn't try to shut down the economy, however.

437 >>You are supposed to quarantine the sick, not the healthy. Far fewer people to quarantine, and the community at large generally supports the matter.

Absolutely the ideal case. When you know who is sick.

The incubation period of the Wuhan virus can be as much as a couple weeks without symptoms. We've tested about 1 million people in total in the US so far and it is pretty much only people who are actively showing symptoms meaning we really have no idea who is sick.

Almost 700,000 people died in the US in the Spanish flu when the population was less than a third of what it is today. More than in WWI. In today's numbers we would be looking at over 2 million deaths.

Just saying using what we did in 2018 is probably not the strongest argument for how to deal with this.

442 BTW, we haven't been shopping much since the siege started, but what few times we have gone, it's just been bleary-faced old folks, staggering around staring at empty bread shelves, mostly, folks buying just a few necessary items, as we were doing.

But tonight, at Aldi, I finally saw some of those hoarders who were emptying those shelves. The couple had an overflowing cart with many loaves of bread, pounds of sugar, gallons of honey, much more I didn't want to stare too closely. Any more than I did.

Now, I don't blame anyone for stocking up, especially if this thing spirals on for weeks. And even if that couple just rarely shopped, so that was ordinary stocking-up for them, in ordinary times, I could understand perfectly. But, all I could think was, "Oh, so it's you guys doing all this!"

They didn't look like they had missed many meals, IYKWIMAITTYD.

I did not call and report them to the authorities.

Also did laundry today, finally. Lots of it.

Laundry lady already had the Authorities up in her biz about how many can be there (no more than 10), and no folding after drying. Only thing she wasn't doing already was having signs posted about it. She's always cleaning - that laundry, I think you could eat off the floor. Unlike the other one, where I don't actually want to walk on their floor... heh.

Laundry lady's tales of irate folk who don't want to follow rules were sad & funny.

Sassy young person: "I'll do what I want!"

"No, you'll take all your wet laundry & get out now."

Don't mess with laundry lady!

High school teacher meets and falls in love with Marlene Dietrich.

Wikipedia:

Rath gives up his position at the school to marry Lola. Their happiness is short-lived, however, as Rath becomes humiliatingly dependent on Lola. Over several years, he sinks lower and lower, first selling dirty postcards, and then becoming a clown in Lola's troupe to pay the bills. His growing insecurities about Lola's profession as a "shared woman" eventually consume him with lust and jealousy.

There was an income tax during the Civil War. It was repealed in the late 1860. In 1894, it was re-introduced. In 1895 it was ruled unconstitutional.

The 16th amendment was proposed in 1909 and ratified in 1913.

The Portland metropolitan government is proposing a 1% income tax "to help the homeless" - but only on people making more than $150,000 a year.

It will pass in Portland, of course, but suburbanites get to vote on it too - we'll see how many people are dumb enough to think that the income tax will stay at 1%, and only for incomes over $150,000, if it passes.

566 The President IS being led astray by the BureauDocs on this. He was on the right track, and he's on the wrong track now.

Hospitals are NOT being overwhelmed. Far, far from it. they are DEAD quiet.

what is REALLY going on?!?!

even if we hit the max Fauci stated - over whatever timeframe - that is NOT enough to put all Americans - perfectly well Americans! - under quarantine - actually longer than 40 days. it's all crazy and I don't know what to say.

I'm not on board with the President on this issue. If there's some data I'm missing I'd love to know. Some variable.

but the idea of NOT quarantining North Jersey and major metro NYC is crazy. they're STILL flying out of New York to all over the country!!!

this means no matter HOW LONG wolf keeps us hidden, it won't matter b/c any random New Jersey asshat can come to anywhere and start up a new flare up. and OOPS I guess we get another 40 days then in the house!

this is the dumbest thing ever and I'm sorry. I'm just NOT on board with Don with this one.

1913. How was that ever supposed to be a temporary wartime measure
before WWI even started?
Posted by: RickZ at March 31, 2020 11:38 PM (Y8PSl)


the current income tax is based around the deal made in Congress to reduce the emphasis the excise tax had on US politics, and the use of it to restrict open trade.
The theory was that if the excise could be made unimportant and the tax burden moved to the wage earners, there would be less fighting between agrarian and manufacturing states (read Dems and Repubicans)

Wilson just turned the marginal rates down to finance his war, along with the central bank.
The Wilson thing is that taxes went up temporarily and were supposed to go back down afterward. But it never seems to work out that way.

I'm way too lazy to peel enough garlic to reach a pound of cloves, but darned if the local store didn't come through with an entire pound of cloves for a reasonable price. Soon there will be stew.

The high estimates are high for a reason; Trump knows the media will hammer him if the deaths are higher than he estimated.

Lower than estimated and the media has to find another "grim milestone"

My unscientific hunch is somewhere between 30K and 50K.

Even if 300K died, it would be just under 1/1000 of the total US population. So for every death, many who were already on borrowed time due to unrelated issues, we're going to strangle the rights and financially ruin the other 999?

I would very much say that is how this should be handled. Yes people died (far more actually than would die in the same exact circumstances today because of advances in medicine). But no one ever suggested that the world should stop because there was a new disease. Even in places where they did practice "social distancing" it was with the cancellation of large scale public events. It was not handled by forcing businesses into bankruptcy or by the police arresting preachers for holding services.

There were a series of panics in the late 1800's cause by subsidies made to the railroads and by the issue of pegging the value of silver to gold to make the US currency more convertible to european currencies - this ended with intentional overvaluation of silver -- and in response to these series of business cycles caused by overissuing of money needing a bust to clear out the malinvestments, the major power brokers in the banking world got together to reset up a central bank, which I think was more of a banking cartel than anything, to make sure such panics never happened again. However they ensured this by trying to ensure that sure none of the malinvestments would ever be cleared out.

That is completely consistent with my experience with how business is done in China, and that's my guess as to what happened here.

629 Instead of trying to warn the world they covered it up and poisoned the world and we all still know where it came from. I don't believe this whole thing came from some Chinaman eating a bat.
Posted by: JackStraw at April 01, 2020 12:12 AM (ZLI7S)

If I had to say the source is what they are covering up. Maybe a Bioweapon. The biggest thing to me is that it does not seem to be virulent enough for that, for which we may be very lucky. The reaction they had to me said that they expected the death toll to be far, far worse. Everything that follows is just me trying to make sense of what they did.

Long incubation time (during which you may or may not be infectious.) In a truly deadly disease that would be a world ender.

So, I guess this theory goes.

1) Bioweapon is released from their labs somehow.
2) They shit their pants.
3) They lock everything and anything down, once it becomes apparent they have no control over the spread.
4) It is less virulent than their bioweapon scientists promised (when it was a weapon supposed to be unleashed on their enemies.)
5) They start to unclench. Start using it to their advantage (aforementioned dissident liquidation) and after it spreads to the west, their biggest problem becomes making sure it never, ever comes out how this all happened.

This is just me spinning a yarn here. I dunno, what they did does not make sense based upon the disease we are experiencing.

631 At dinner tonight, a friend showed me phone pics of a truck wreck on Hwy. 87, between Payson and Phoenix/Mesa. Southbound semi lost his brakes on the hill, and laid it over on a bridge, blocking both lanes. Trailer burst open and spilled most of the cargo - eggs, a metric fuckton of them. People in the trapped vehicles behind the wreck scavenged some eggs, but most were broken. Road was running yellow with egg yolks. They were stuck there 7 hours. They got out the lawn chairs, and made a party of it. Trucker was not hurt.

639 My Epidemics professor in college made a couple good points: Really deadly diseases that spread and kill a lot of people require very specific factors:

1) An animal population that can shed the disease to humans, but are immune to it themselves- otherwise the disease burns itself out by killing everything in an area.

2) Evolutionarily, diseases are selected that do NOT cause death, because the disease will not propagate if all of it's hosts are dead.

Yes. Long incubation periods that provide lots of time to infect others before killing the host.

Possibly. But given how many people were murdered (yes, murdered!) In China during the great leap forward I believe that this was most likely done on purpose. The Chinese government communist assholes wouldn't think twice about killing millions of chinese to stay in power. My China born husband describes that attitude in China as "life is cheap in China" and he doesnt mean inexpensive.

666 1 lb of peeled garlic cloves for that much meat. It mellows and disappears, not harsh at all, just rich. I'm way too lazy to peel enough garlic to reach a pound of cloves, but darned if the local store didn't come through with an entire pound of cloves for a reasonable price. Soon there will be stew.

Posted by: Splunge at April 01, 2020 12:08 AM (dOV9E)


Two things: Peeling that many cloves is easy if you use the glass jar with a lid and the shake 'em up for a few seconds method. Loosens the skins right up and they peel easily; just don't cram pack the jar to allow room for them to bounce around. I told my friend this trick (found on YouBoob) and she uses it at Thanksgiving when she peels a lot of garlic; she couldn't believe something so simple actually works.

Also, be wary of those peeled cloves. Bleach can be involved, not to mention Chinese slave laborers.

695 Polygyny has historically worked a lot better than polyandry (which is quite rare in real human societies...). But still, one need only go back to Jim, the Sage of the Mississippi, to see why that's not ideal.

"Yes," says [Huck], "and other times, when things is dull, [the kings] fuss with the parlyment; and if everybody don't go just so he whacks their heads off. But mostly they hang round the harem."

"Roun' de which?"

"Harem."

"What's de harem?"

"The place where he keeps his wives. Don't you know about the harem? Solomon had one; he had about a million wives."

"Why, yes, dat's so; I -- I'd done forgot it. A harem's a bo'd'n-house, I reck'n. Mos' likely dey has rackety times in de nussery. En I reck'n de wives quarrels considable; en dat 'crease de racket. Yit dey say Sollermun de wises' man dat ever live'. I doan' take no stock in dat. Bekase why: would a wise man want to live in de mids' er sich a blim-blammin' all de time? No -- 'deed he wouldn't. A wise man 'ud take en buil' a biler-factry; en den he could shet down de biler-factry when he want to res'."

"Well, but he was the wisest man, anyway; because the widow she told me so, her own self."

"I doan' k'yer what de widder say, he warn't no wise man nuther. He had some er de dad-fetchedes' ways I ever see. Does you know 'bout dat chile dat he 'uz gwyne to chop in two?"

"Yes, the widow told me all about it."

"Well, den! Warn' dat de beatenes' notion in de worl'? You jes' take en look at it a minute. Dah's de stump, dah--dat's one er de women; heah's you--dat's de yuther one; I's Sollermun; en dish yer dollar bill's de chile. Bofe un you claims it. What does I do? Does I shin aroun' mongs' de neighbors en fine out which un you de bill do b'long to, en han' it over to de right one, all safe en soun', de way dat anybody dat had any gumption would? No; I take en whack de bill in two, en give half un it to you, en de yuther half to de yuther woman. Dat's de way Sollermun was gwyne to do wid de chile. Now I want to ast you: what's de use er dat half a bill? can't buy noth'n wid it. En what use is a half a chile? I wouldn' give a dern for a million un um."

Yes, I think this virus was released by a ChiCom lab fuck-up. When docs in Wuhan first identified this thing, they alerted Beijing, which responded by telling them to keep it quiet and destroy the samples they had isolated.

Why the hell would you want to destroy samples? Likely because they already all the samples they needed, being under study and experiment in the Chicom bio lab.

I think this explains the coverup. They wanted to cover up the fact that they had a bad breach in their labs and accidentally let this thing out.

It's not some engineered bioweapon, just something they were studying and playing with in that level-4 lab.

Some Chicom lab guys fucked up.

Fascinating car was the old early 70's Buick Electra - an old man's car with a 460 big block engine and fuel injected over the top four carb that had all four barrels kick in at just over 60MPH electronically - it literally had a passing fuel/oxygen dump if you double stomped on the accelerator. It would beat a lot of the hot running and lighter GTOs and Fords at the half during its time.

Methanol and water mix, about 50/50 I think. Didn't have the intercooler that today's turbos have, so that stopped the "spark knock"

The engine turned out 215 hp from the factory, so it was 1 hp per cubic inch, pretty good for 1962. Aluminum block so it was a pretty light car, doesn't take much hp to give you a thrill.

Much better to have the 4 speed than the 2 speed automatic for sure.

The F-85's and Jetfires supposedly had pretty slushy handling though, so other than a straight line you were pushing your luck on thrills. Too bad they didn't combine that with the Pontiac Tempest rear transmission IRS setup

749 NYC has the highest infection rate for two primary reasons:

1. High density of population. You are a whole lot more likely to encounter an infected person in NYC than in a Kansas wheat field.


2. Very few privately owned vehicles. You are unlikely to contract the virus while driving your car, but riding in a subway or a taxicab you are at much higher risk. Cabbies have such close contact with so many people that their chance of getting infected is far higher than an average person's chance, and once infected they become a "Typhoid Mary" and spread the Communist Flu to many people. The metal railing and plastic seats in subway cars are another good vector for the disease.

2. Lack of documentation of training.
3. Lack of oversight since the Command Pilot that day was also Chief of Maintenance.
4. P leads on left magneto on #4 engine were safety wired to prevent separation, this meant that magneto grounded out.

I once had to take the LA Metro buses to work when my car blew the engine. Caught a pretty nasty cold from it too.

I think this might cause millennials to rethink their attitude about cars and driving, and maybe even their preference to live like caged rats in big cities.

They might have already reconsidered living in cities, I've read that as they reach their late 20's the Big City loses its appeal and they get tired of paying more for a 500 sq ft apartment than their old HS classmates are paying in mortgages in the suburbs or flyover country.

770 Bf109Fs with the DB-601 could be fitted with GM-1* which put a shot of nitrous into the engine to give a brief power boost. This was the first of the 109s to get this quick fix from Daimler. Any Bf109F fitted with such got a Z suffix, Bf109F-4/Z for example.

*The wags said GM stood for Goering Mixture.

Also increases the effective octane rating of the fuel charge; whether that increase is solely due to the cooling, I don't know.

777 A Z modified Friedrich could be externally identified by two features, a deeper cooler under the nose and a wider bladed VDM propeller. Both modifications along with GM-1 were designed to make the fighter better at high altitude.

These two features would carry over to the Gustav model. Which makes a G-2 hard to identify from an F-4/Z if the wing blocks view of the fuselage fuel filler point and tail.

The Gustav series moved the fuel filler point to behind the cockpit and higher towards the top of the spine. The external stiffeners which was common on the Friedrich were finally done away with as Messerschmitt internally strengthened the tail to resist the sympathetic harmonic that hastened metal fatigue.

778 The V-1710 and V-1650 would run on 100 octane.

The DB-601 was running on 87 octane, so the Germans really needed a power boost.

Posted by: Anna Puma at April 01, 2020 02:24 AM (w2O4c)

It's important to remember that 100 octane fuel does not necessarily contain 13% more energy than 87 octane, but that it permits an engine to run a higher compression ratio and/or greater supercharger boost than does the 87 octane without destroying itself, thereby delivering more power per cubic inch displacement, and more power per weight of the engine.

It all went to intercity cronies pockets. Hell Nazi Peelousy is already calling for increases in socialist spending like food stamps and airline regulation all which has zero to do with 'infrastructure' or Koroncrap.


If we have an 'infrastructure' bill the opening paragraph should categorically state that all of these monies will go to roads, bridges, and other major capital building projects.

811 On car radio today heard daily briefing by San Diego County medical officer (don't know exact title). He is very articulate, one of the best briefings I've ever heard (and I've suffered through them in many contexts for decades).

Interesting to hear what they're doing - inventories of beds/equipment that may be needed at anticipated peak (projected for last week of April in CA), division of labor, organizing a system to make use of all facilities - including out-patient centers that are now dark.

Also renting hotel rooms for isolation of positives and recuperation of cases that are not acute.

The CV-19 site that has timelines and projected situations by state shows CA with no deficit in beds/ICU beds by peak date - very curious. No idea how they compile their capacity figures. They have invasive ventilator #s, but no projection on how many cases will require them at peak - so no "gap" projection there.

For comparison, their numbers for NY show a bed gap of 62K, and an ICU bed gap of about 11K. No idea if this takes into account expedient capacity (Comfort, field hospitals, etc).

Other states with projected sizable gaps - NJ, MI, MA, LA, CT.

Great disparities between various states on incidence, and timelines.

864 Yeah, F you on your HOA BS. I am president of my hoa nit because I want to but because no one else would do it. It's a thankless job and I try very hard to be as unobtrusive as possible. Right now I am working like mad to KEEP OUR SWIMMING POOL OPEN. Yeah, y'all like having these amenities. You buy into such neighborhoods, but then you don't want to TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for maintaining them. F the lot of you. Don't like HOAs, yeah I get it. Then DONT BUY IN ONE.

As for "who runs for", most of these damn things can barely get enough volunteers to serve to form a quorum. There's hardly ever an election. And also, don't go blaming HOA boards when their hands are tied by rules made years ago BY THE F-ING LAWYERS. There's your real problem. Scum of the earth. I could write a book about how the lawyers are milking my community due to a lawsuit by one of the residents that has been going on for TWELVE FING YEARS because the resident blames the HOA for NOT strictly enforcing the rules.

In one of Heinlein's societies, a shop owner who killed an armed robber was expected to display the robber's head on a spike until it got too disgusting, then replace it with a plastic replica.

875 Lots of talk about the pandemic and God, as usually happens at times like these.

God is holy but He also is consistent. He cannot bless the U S. in the depths of its immorakity and wickedness any more than He could have blessed Sodom or the nations worshipping Moloch and Baal. It would be inconsistent of Him, and God is not inconsistent.

But He's not punishing anyone, either.

As hard as this is to hear, as a whole we today are no better than the pagans of old...but the only reason, the Bible reason, He hasn't burned all of this wicked world to the ground is that we're under a dispensation of His grace. That means for now, His wrath is on hold, paused. So are His blessings to any individual nation or people groups. But this dispensation will en. Then His wrath will be poured out like never before.

Point is, corona is not His wrath. AIDS wasn't. 1918 wasn't. Black Death wasn't. They're just parts of living on this sin-cursed earth. God's wrath will be unmistakable when it falls.

Oh fuck you and your bitching. If you see yourself in these other HOA horror stories then perhaps you're not actually doing the thankless job of being the "good" HOA president you're pretending to be. Are you threatening to evict people because their jobs told them to work from home during a pandemic? Are you fining people because their grad is a quarter inch above the limit before it needs to get mown? Are you demanding people make sure their kids don't leave their bikes on the lawn for five minutes while they run in to use the bathroom?

If you're not stop acting like you're some put upon victim doing the thankless job.

918 There are things in life called social responsibilities.

There it is again - the slippery slope. A few Morons of fine repute have bemoaned repeatedly that all this could end, and quickly, if folks would just do their civic duty.

The trick is - who defines it ? Because some define it as not owning a car, living outside the city, or using a straw. Those in charge, including the orange guy at the top that I voted for, have defined it as putting a soft, unannounced martial law in place to protect a number still less than a seasonal flu.

The definition of civic duty is a powerful hammer, and a favorite one of tyrants. Because it works like a charm. Never assume the definition of civic duty will always be to your liking.

It may just be the wearing of a yellow star, and reporting those that don't.

We looked at a home in an HOA development before we built. Read the covenances. No way. You basically had to ask permission to do anything except cut your lawn.

Posted by: jsg at April 01, 2020 07:17 AM (aiWhJ)

941 Yes there are problems with HOAs and I'm one of the few people actually trying to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT INSTEAD OF BITCHIN* ON THE INTERNET

Well, its pretty clear to us that HOAs are highly stressful to everyone except the busybodies who abuse it to heap misery on their neighbors.

I like the fill in the pool and sell the clubhouse option.

942 927 You know what was never mentioned in that terrible tale of downtrodden HOA administrator woe ?


Dissolving the HOA, filling in the pool, and just calling it a day. And that, my friends, is a case study in the constant creeping expansion of government.

944 Checking the Chinese Death Flu numbers and it brings this terror psy operation in stark relief, they report 93 pct have recovered.


Compared to the world, the US is now the main "infection center."


The reported recovery rate is pathetic as it seems virtually no one recovers from it.

US 4pct recovered, Italy 15pt recovered, Spain 22pct recoverd.


Which means in the US that the vast majority are simply being diagnosed without a test, told to go home and quarantine and never updating any status.


China's number simply are not to be believed at this point.


It would seem that this is a straight up operation based on model numbers.


The models say this so we are going to report numbers that are consistent with the models.


This is all so sad.

I did have my hair cut last Saturday, 3/28, a week earlier than I usually do. The place I go to is an independent shop, in fact one or the other of the owners cuts my hair. This time Frank told me, "Call in two weeks and we'll see where we are."

But now you get garbage numbers on a county by county level!

As far as they don't screw that up too. You reside in County A, but get tested in County B, but the lab is in County C. Where does the recording take place?

Because I promise you that the number torturers are clumping deaths from multiple counties into one and then use the population of the smaller county as the denominator.

I've never had a cat that old. Arizona was the champ, 16.5 years and ruggedly healthy until the last 2. My current two are 12 and 10, so still sprightly.

960 @948

Everyone knew they were cooking the books with regards the Climate Change Scam but this is something far more sinister.

The models reported there should be 4600 dead in the us by April 1, we suddenly had 750 reported deaths overnight , they need 560 deaths or so deaths t get to 4600, wanna bet they get those deaths?


This is a monstrosity.

Huh. I would walk over and talk to the neighbor once the height got real high. Did that more than once. In each case there was a good reason. Widow couldn't get out because of illness, mower in the shop, the third party that normally does it was deported..

Sometimes, being a good neighbor is to take your own mower over and do it.

Covid is one of those great unmasking events, where you get to find out that a whole lot of folks really ain't small govt, personal freedom and responsibility in the slightest - when the chips are really down.

Romney and Trump were different unmaskings - but unmaskings all the same. This place really is ant farm, where the ants talk.

973 Today I have a legit excuse to drive somewhere other than the grocery. The feed store called; the rabbit-based dry chow I'm feeding the older cat has come in. It's also going to be the last fairly cool day until December here, so that makes another good reason to get out, wind down the windows, and wind up the engine.

"Wind up the engine" might sound strange when you're talking about a Buick. But remember, Buicks have often been powerful cars. My LaCrosse has 300 hp, which I rarely get to use.

978 "The U.S. isn't Old Testament Israel. The promises and curses upon Israel do not apply to the US or even to Israel post 70 AD."

Exactly right. People who pray "If My people..." (which seems to be everyone who prays) are asking God to (a) give them a command and blessing He intended ONLY for an obedient Israel, and (b) wink at our wickedness while He does so. Honestly, I consider it a form of blasphemy...done in ignorance, no doubt, but blasphemous when one thinks about exactly what it's asking of Him.



"The summation is spot-on though."

Then WTF are you bitching about? And AGAIN, it's not the HOAs as much as it is the lawyers and the scumbag insurance companies that also conspire to suck our blood. That's a broader issue. If you run a business your rights are being eaten away by the insurance companies as well. And EVERYONE pays for this due to the load that this litigious bs puts on the courts.
