The Saturday Night Joke

***

Opinions are like assholes. Everybody has one. I would have never thought let alone say that Corona beer was essential.

The brewer of Corona beer has suspended production because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The brand of lager - whose unfortunate name has made it a punchline during the health crisis - will not be produced after Mexico deemed it non-essential.

Fears of a shortage have prompted panic-buying, with pictures from Mexican shops showing trolleys piled up with beer.

The brewery Grupo Modelo said it was scaling down its operations to a 'bare minimum' in line with the Mexican government's orders.

Just my opinion. If you enjoy Corona good on you.

When it comes to protein, I'll take mine in the form of meat. The EU has different ideas.

If this ruling does go through as anticipated, it would allow for mass-produced insect-based foods to be available throughout the EU. Beyond the ways in which some insects have an appealing taste, there’s also an environmentally-friendly reason to eat more insects, as Carl Swanson explained at Grub Street in 2016. “Bugs, being coldblooded and short-lived, with a preference for cramped spaces, turn what they eat into protein for us much more efficiently than a cow does,” Swanson wrote.

Gender inequality? Hey babes don't be nags.

Malaysia has the largest number of COVID-19 cases in Southeast Asia with more than 2,900 and counting. This week, Malaysia's government also had a serious public relations issue after an ill-conceived plan went online.

Malaysia's Ministry for Women, Family and Community Development issued a series of online posters on Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #WomenPreventCOVID19. It advised the nation's women to help with the country's partial lockdown by not nagging their husbands.

The ministry also advised women to refrain from being "sarcastic" if they asked for help with household chores. And it urged women working from home to dress up and wear makeup.

Math sucks. And sometimes it really sucks.

Northampton police are reminding drivers again to be mindful of traffic signs.

Police were called to Bridge Street railroad overpass in downtown Northampton shortly after 6 a.m. Thursday after a tractor-trailer truck from out of state struck the bridge.

“Unfortunately, people put too much faith in their GPS sometimes,” Northampton police said in a post shared on social media. “The driver was cited accordingly.”

We are all in this together. Except for Erika.

During the coronavirus outbreak, healthcare workers are being hailed as heroes.

But one Arlington doctor had the police called to her office this week by a resident who was outraged that she was conducting in-car COVID-19 tests in the building’s parking lot.

Dr. Lillian Hunt owns a ground-floor office condo at The Chatham condominium building, located a mile south of Ballston at 4501 Arlington Blvd. She says she started testing her patients last Monday “as soon as my commercial labs could give me the test kits.”

“I started testing because patients and colleagues with exposures and/or viral symptoms could not get tested by the overwhelmed public sector,” Dr. Hunt told ARLnow. “When Arlington announced public testing the prior week, I sent an order to a patient who returned from Europe just before the international flights were restricted. The patient had a fever of 102.5, dry cough, sore throat, and severe malaise. She drove to the site across from W-L high school but was unable to get the test done due to excess demand.”

Whatever happened to a pleasant surprise? Not for these Genius Award Winners.

BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. —
Even with a burn ban in place, fire officials in Florida have already seen an increase in fires, including a Saturday blaze that was reportedly sparked by a gender reveal celebration.

"We were informed that it was caused by a gender reveal using Tannerite and a weapon," said Brevard County Fire Rescue Chief Mark Schollmeyer. “Something as seemingly innocent as a gender reveal, can turn into a large-scale disaster where homes are threatened.

Trouble in transit, got through the roadblock
We blended in with the crowd
We got computers, we're tapping phone lines
I know that that ain't allowed
We dress like students, we dress like housewives
Or in a suit and a tie
I changed my hairstyle so many times now
I don't know what I look like
You make me shiver and I feel so tender
We make a pretty good team

My cue includes To Catch a Thief with Grace Kelly, who was really beautiful and a terrible driver. (See also High Society for confirmation)

I've got The Taking of Pelham 123 (the original) and 1984 in my queue, but I don't feel like watching them just yet.

Erich von Stroheim couldn't drive either. For the scene in Sunset Boulevard where he drives through the Paramount gate, the car was towed in, but Stroheim still managed to run into the gate itself.

They also have tens of millions of it's citizens spread out around the globe, at universities, in labs, in manufacturing and distribution hubs, theses citizens travel back and forth to China, which is how this thing spread in the first place.


When and if this madness is allowed to subside, what's to prevent this from becoming an annual occurrence?


Oh and according to WorldMeter, the US is now the main vector of the virus and China hasn't recorded a single new case in weeks and the deaths listed are a fraction of the US.

My theory is grandparents are telling their middle aged kids and college grad grandkids that you've gotta have flour and yeast for bread making in any well stocked pantry, so suddenly, there are millions of people who've never baked a loaf of bread hoarding ingredients they'll never get around to using anytime soon.

The world might have gone crazy, but anyone can still buy fresh bread from the grocery store once a week.

123 Corona is the top selling import beer in the United States. That article is done by the Brits so they are talking about the Modelo sold Corona. Corona has a weird set up as an American company called Constellation Brands (STZ) has the rights to produce it and sell it in the USA.

I believe Constellation has a brewery on the border just to make the beer for the USA and still say it is made in Mexico. I don't know if that brewery is closing down too but it is likely.
Constellation was a kick ass stock for years up until about three or four years ago. They made a few missteps and spend a lot of money on adventures/ventures such as pot companies. The Millennials and their White Claws haven't helped much either.

For me, they have their time and place. It can't always be the latest gose or tripple bock. With Mexican food or on a hot day they can be good. Corona in a can is way better than the version in the clear bottle.

Some Mexican beers I like other than Negra Modelo are Pacifio, Victoria, and Bohemia. Bohemia also makes a Christmas beer called Noche Buena that many like, but I haven't had it.

There was actually a good supply of bottled water on hand.

My father is back in the hospital. A persistent UTI flared up again. He's had this thing for over a year, and beginning back in January, it got worse. He's been in the hospital twice before in the past 6-7 weeks, with the infection going "mildly" septic.

One of the docs said these things can take 6 weeks of antibiotics to eradicate, but they all just prescribe a week or two. 5 days or so after he goes off of them, it flares up again.

And they tested him for WuFlu. Negative. And because of that crap, no visitors are allowed in the hospital. So there he is, alone, no one can see him.

Well, no, not actually.
The big problem is that he hasn't been dead nearly long enough for the regular symphony orchestras to attempt his scores. They have to know that it's all right before they play something. And his scores are really damn hard to play.

Getting harder to justify, I think. They don't have to care about contributions or ticket sales. Their money all comes from hospital foundations and the state arts commission.

I was reading. I'm almost certain now WuFlu was a Chicom lab accident. The real Chicom Patient Zero is likely this lab tech, female. She went missing, and the Chicoms are busy memory holing her existence. They're erasing all records that she ever existed.

Interestingly, the were working with bat corona viruses in that WuHan lab, but the protocol for that was only level 2, so minimal protection.

This Chicom chick managed to get herself infected and then spread it all over Wuhan.

This is bad, this is Resident Evil type bad. Hamsters seeking revenge, with the knowledge of the Horde, and otters that can dive to canoe accident sites and retrieve weapons. Gentle 'rons and 'ettes, we may be seeing our greatest fear, our greatest foe, emerge in these troubled times. Fully weaponized hamsters and otters, with the knowledge of our weaknesses, and the will to do something about all that.

It is time for us all to do what we do best, and I for one will welcome our new fuzzy, adorable overlords and toss BCochran to them as a sacrifice. Because of his carrots-in-chili fetish.

Had a productive day today. Shopped at WalMart, Home Depot, and Lowes, and got an enchilada for lunch at the little taco joint.

Finished closing in the wall in the guest bedroom, and got most of the ceiling done, too. Wound up by spackling a few cracks in the ceiling. Got a two-gallon bucket of pre-mixed ceiling texture, and a texture roller, so I can restore the ceiling to its original tacky glory.

392 Evening All,

Actually did OT in my office for the first time ever and on a Saturday to Boot. Security was surprised to see me but then saw my Card Key for the building.

He said, "Wow sir, if you are coming in on the weekends, this must be bad."

I just smiled, "Naw just a little catch-up on paperwork from the last 2 weeks." This was true. But only because I've had to re-invent every nursing procedure on a daily basis for the last 2 weeks while still trying to keep clients in medications and doctor follow-ups. I'm running 2 phones to clients, case managers, and program directors, e-mails from 30 to 125 daily, Zoom conferences 6 times weekly and 2-way radios. I am still remembering to breath occasionally.

Still, Admin NEVER let me do OT in the last 2 years.

Was a very quiet walk up to the 2nd Floor, being the only one there....too much time to think about it all.....

Dang.

That isn't a good test, because when I was young and poor and gifted with alcohol, I would drink through that alcohol, no matter what (usually after getting pre-lit on something I liked.) The real test is if he buys it of hi own free will*after* you have given him that.

443 gbucky.. Condolences. All of them.

I went through similar when my Son in Law passed suddenly at the age of 33. He lived in Glasgow, Scotland.

That was a very long flight.

Take all the zinc and all the vitamins. Masks. And some "official paper" of some kind, even if it's just on Funeral Home letterhead.

A then, go. Wear gloves, even if only driving gloves, always. Shake no hands, Sit at the very back of whatever chapel is used, and be first out the door and into open air, after.

But I think it's worth the risk for this one reason. Your daughter will need you there, probably more in this one moment, than any other time in her life.

You have many prayers, ascending.

No thanks. It is a real disease. But it is only 20 percent as deadly as the seasonal flu according to the CDC's own numbers. But for some reason we are destroying our economy and giving up our freedom over this. Also no thanks.

Democrat governors are shutting down our biggest states and acting like dictators and by destroying the economy they will ultimately cause tens of millions of divorces, tens of millions of business failures, a hundred thousand suicides.

3.5 million Americans will die this year of all causes, just like every year. But we have wrecked our country over a new disease that is easily cured with existing medicine and is about 20th on the list of things that kill Americans. And they are a absolutely lying about the numbers in NYC, NJ, Cali and WA.

479 My dad served on a Diesel boat in the USN.

I remember him telling me one of the very first things they did after getting underway and out to sea, was throwing all the "cutters and canners" meat overboard. LOL!! They ate good, better than the regular Navy. Better pay too. He said they didn't want guys to know they were submariners at bars, they wouldn't always wear their dolphins, because somebody would want to start a fight.

He said they stole a nickel slot machine one night on a drunken spree from Gitmo or maybe Atlantic City, I think it was, and intalled it in the control room. Great little moneymaker for the boat. The chief of the boat would use it for emergency funds for enlisted on emergency leave, stuff like that.

Then, when the boat was in dry dock for repair, some dumb ass civilian contractor got to playing it a little too often. His wife called the base commander complaining her husband "lost all his paycheck in the slot machine." Of course, officially there are no slot machines anywhere, this did not go over well with the higher ups, and .. the slot machine had to go bye-bye.

So sorry for your situation. I have read stories of two funerals a week apart in Dougherty County, GA that caused an explosion of CCP cases. However, they were in late February and no one attending was aware of the danger of this virus. If you do decide to go, at least you will be aware of the risks and be able to take measures to mitigate them.

Also, I would suggest to BeckoningChasm and others that may be suddenly suffering feelings of despondency/depression to make sure you are taking Vitamin D. These are symptoms of a deficiency that can certainly be a result of being cooped up at home.

512 Usually the greatest thing stolen ever for cans or pig-boats was an ice cream machine.

He mentioned that too, they had a lot of ice cream. Said the food on the sub was great. For some reason a lot of stuff on the sub was frozen. Said they had crap stuffed everywhere when first setting out. Even his "bunk" was just canvas stretched right over a torpedo.

Ice cream in the Navy has some traditions involved, informal rules and such iirc. I think the ship or folks picking up a splashed naval aviator were within their rights to demand so many gallons of ice cream for the return of the pilot. All in good fun, but ... ice cream is ice cream.

I read somewhere, I think it might have been Mitscher, one of the Navy battleships pulled into Brazil or Argentina or somewhere down there at the start of World War II and bought the whole damn coffee crop. The Navy was not going to be denied their Java.

Resizing/trimming brass for food for the M1s, then just prime them (already have ammo I want to shoot to finish off a certain kind). Then, some 9mikemike test loads for my new standard bullet, 124g FMJ (standard meaning I've a few thousand, so that'll be all I load for a while, until another similar one is found on sale). Then some 30 carbine for the little M1s, then some 38.

That's just topping up the existing calibers. Guess I could get dies for the 380 and start that, too. And all of this is on top of mumble mumble crap-ton of factory I keep in most calibers as my Strategic Ammo Reserve (not for the apocalypse that ain't coming, but for letting others shoot my guns - only I shoot the reloads - and possibly training classes where factory is required, or for times I don't have time to reload, or components, or whatever).

526 Ladyl, thought I saw that there was already a measured sharp drop in positive flu tests, vs. the norm (for this season, this time), attributed to the circuit breaking. And of course that will be a result. I've been carefully reducing/avoiding hand shakes in certain situations, and washing my hands, for several years, specifically to reduce risk of colds. Seems to have worked, though impossible to be sure (but I've had no colds for a long time).

529 USS Barb, on that sub they had a tradition when they were beginning an attack run to have a couple of cases of beer put into the fridges* so that when all was over they could all properly celebrate with a few ounces of beer each.


*They had beer on board for away parties on shore, like picnic treats. Otherwise at sea the navy was dry. But small vessels like subs, the officers and crew were so close together and so close in age (likely the oldest on board would be senior petty officers) that these sort of shenanigans would happen with everyone knowing to "shut-up until after the war is over - like ten years after".

Every military worth it's weight in tradition does this, and it is a good thing if kept to healthy hijinks only.

If we all lived in boxes six feet apart or more, all transmissible diseases would cease to exist. It's science!

I keep noting that there never seems to ba a comparison as to death rates (or death rate models) from other similar diseases and theoretically we have all that data.

An unbiased honest modeler would surely go back to the last few "flu" variant years and try to duplicate/validate his models against these known data sets and proudly present them to an admiring public,

Modern medicine and science have eliminated much of the scourge of infectious disease outbreaks in this country. But I remember reading people over the years who warned this was but a temporary reprieve, because life, which includes pathogens, will find a way.

We made a big leap in fighting them, but they will come back in time.

We had regular outbreaks of terrible diseases in the past here, but it is gone from our collective memory.

It's coming back, and we will adjust again. But we'll have to relearn some things. And that won't be pretty.

537 Ice cream and Navy, etc. - my favorite (think it's from Tillman's book on the Corsair) was from WWII.

Being Americans at war, the ground crew figured out a way to make ice cream (South Pacific island air base) by attaching a clean fuel tank filled with ice cream ingredients to an F-4U's wing for the combat air patrols.

When the patrols were uneventful, as they usually were, the plane would return, the contents chilled down enough to mix them a bit into a sort of ice cream.

Winning!

545 I am of the ilk that believe this happened BECAUSE of Trump. Were Hillary president, we wouldn't have been attacked like this.

Depends on who you believe the perpetrators are and what is to be gained.

I don't get the upside for China here.

I do see how this benefits the politically connected. Like the four Senators that protected themselves by using advanced knowledge. We do know that Senators trade that kind of inside information for serious "campaign contributions" and other considerations.

So lets say that you are very wealthy, own some congress critters, and you aspire to increasing your power and influence. So you get out of the market early, let the markets totally crash with the idea that you buy everything for pennies on the dollar before it goes back up.

The politicians are hiding any information from us regarding if/when they will permit us to work or produce any taxable wealth, but all they need to do is let their patrons know a few days in advance of when they intend to lift this evil, the patrons scoop up equities in large quantities, using zero interest loans on top of the money they have kept, which stirs people into thinking the markets are returning.

Remember Trump kept telling us that the market will do a 'V', so he is aware that we are watching the greatest wealth transfer the planet has ever witnessed.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if we see a modern day Trillionaire or two because of this.

Brown bottles protect the flavor of the beer from light.

At least that's what I was told at the Rainier Brewery in the early 80's during a tour.

I have no reason to doubt them, they have been around (new owners of course) for over a century.

586 Depends on who you believe the perpetrators are and what is to be gained.



I don't get the upside for China here.

---
Dude, your reasonable options here are
1) China did it deliberately as a population control measure (because they got hit first).
2)The initial release was accidental, China covered it up because they knew it might be something out of the lab near where the early infections were, and let potentially diseased people from the region travel around the world without warning everyone in order to not be the only nation disadvantaged from the outbreak.
3)It was an accident, plus the cultural obsession with saving face, plus denial of a loss of control, plus the incompetence that tends to be prmoted within communist societies.
In each instance the guilty party is the ChiComs, either malicious, or negligent, or a combination. But there isn't any real possibility of anyone else to blame until you get to the handling of the situation.

Ice cream and Navy, etc. - my favorite (think it's from Tillman's book on the Corsair) was from WWII.



Being Americans at war, the ground crew figured out a way to make
ice cream (South Pacific island air base) by attaching a clean fuel tank
filled with ice cream ingredients to an F-4U's wing for the combat air
patrols.



When the patrols were uneventful, as they usually were, the plane
would return, the contents chilled down enough to mix them a bit into a
sort of ice cream.



Winning!



Posted by: rhomboid at April 05, 2020 12:09 AM (El6T/)




"Tales of the South Pacific" was fiction, of course. But it was based on a lot of stories of what the very clever, very devious, Americans did to make life away from home a lot more enjoyable. Like the one guy with the clapped-out TBF that he used for trading, carrying beer along in the bomb bay, and using that to barter.


And if I recall correctly, when the British Pacific Fleet got on scene for Okinawa (and the local USN were real happy that the number of targets had increased, because hey - odds) the British carriers had a problem with the belly tanks for the Seafires. The tanks were bad and leaking, they needed new tanks.

They determined that P-40 belly tanks would fit. And there was an Australian airbase that ran P-40s. So a destroyer was sent with a couple of cases of scotch. Not the usual local produced-tastes-like-two-cycle-with-brown-food-coloring-scotch, but actual real from Scotland Scotch*. The negotiations did not last long. The offer was made:

"We need every drop tank you have. We'll give you this."

"For that you can have the whole damned base."



That was a very crowded destroyer that rejoined the BPF. So many drop tanks.


*Unlike the USN, the RN was Not Dry. They were very popular in joint task forces.

This is Palm Sunday coming up, right? Or already there for y'all on east-of-me saving clocks.

Jesus pulling one of the greatest PR stunts in history, quietly riding into town on an ass while the crowds go wild. Hey, you asshoe guys out to keel him, y'can't touch him, can you? He's in total control. All the way through the week.

♪ (Caiaphas) Tell the rabble to be quiet
We anticipate a riot
This common crowd
Is much too loud

Tell the mob who sing your song
That they are fools and they are wrong
They are a curse
They should disperse...

(Jesus) Why waste your time
Moaning at the crowds?
Nothing can be done
to stop the shouting
If ev'ry tongue was still
the noise would still continue
The rocks and stones themselves
would start to sing...


Why is this the greatest lyric in that somewhat confused rock opera? Because Jesus really said that about the rocks and I believe he meant it. The excitement of that hour could not have been contained.

Alas, so few days later, the same crowds called out "Barrabas! Barrabas!"

But that's a story for another day.

Communists are evil and stupid, but not evil and stupid enough to think they could make a controllable virus in the lab. They ARE evil and stupid enough to run some experiments without adequate controls because of bungling bureaucracy and arrogant management.

646 Mikey, good story.

A deceased friend who was a USMC aviation ordnance guy (Guadalcanal, Roi-Namur, Okinawa) was an 18-yr old in VMF-122 when Boyington was XO of the squadron at the Canal. He clearly remembered that Pappy somehow wangled a few cases of beer from one of the Navy supply visits, and asked the skipper if he'd like to distribute some to the guys. CO said no - some of these kids might have never had a drink - to which Boyington replied "well OK, but *I'm* getting drunk!".

Also - sailors delivering supplies from the ships were ready customers (suckers) for fake Jap flags made from parachute silk.

Oh, for Christ's sake. Let me guess: trolling for gifts is also involved in this "celebration".

Celebration of your spawn should be limited to:

1) Baby shower
2) Christening (if applicable)
3) Birthdays (limited to the spawn's friends and very close family members)
4) Bar/Bat Mitzvah (if applicable)
5) Confirmation (if applicable)
6) High school graduation
7) College or specialty school graduation
Wedding

That's it.

No "gender reveals". No kindergarten graduations. No "my kid got a good citizenship award for not beating the crap out of the other kids this week". No doubling up and asking for a confirmation gift as well as a bar mitzvah gift.

None of that.

701 Salsa is one of the biggest rip-offs going. The frigging jar probably costs more.

Tomatos, onions, peppers, spices. It's pretty easy to make. In fact, all the crappiest foods have the highest markup I think. Corn chips are made with field corn iirc. Can't get any cheaper than that, and still call it "food". Probably the highest priced or profit margin item in a grocery anymore? Potato chips? Saltines?

738 ARC, sounds great! I was with friends (a couple I've traveled with all over), we did the "backpackers" (small hostels). We did nearly 20 different activities in a month, from glacier climbs and dolphin swims to blackwater rafting (underground). One of my favorites was "river sledging" - basically boogie-boarding a class 4 or whatever whitewater river with a helmet, fins, wetsuit (brilliant idea). F***king cold water, exhausting, but best thrill ride evah.

739 I have been travelling to people in my congregation around to deliver little crosses which I made from last year years palms and put a little decorative heart where the vertical and horizontal line meet. That is because shops were closed and I couldn't get any fresh palms this year. While out I see signs at houses of worship. One I liked: "I a world upside down turn to Jesus." One I didn't like so much: "Hands are not for shaking but for washing." Don't we all know this by now? I would have liked some spiritual message. Our sign says "God does not practice social distancing. God loves you; Pray."

747 Several Mexican beers, some decent, were small-scale and regional/local, prior to being acquired (either literally, or as brands to market) by larger companies.

Jim probably recalls Tecate in steel cans, maybe even Moctezuma's (Dos Equis, etc) Christmas bockbier - Noche Buena (with amazing beautiful poinsettia-themed foil wrapping).

Weird, I remember, it was 1983, I'd flown up to NYC for a wedding, used LaGuardia. On the flight back to DC, I passed one of those back-lit ad panels on the wall - Tecate beer. WTF?? Last time I'd seen it, a brand limited to San Diego, maybe Yuma, on this side of the border.

Steel can, six pack was $2, $3 at most when we went south for waves (stack of hot/fresh corn tortillas, $1), not all that many years before, in my even earlier yute.

757 When we deployed to Honduras, Corona beer didn't seem to be on the radar. Seems like for the locals it was Pacifico, which I thought reasonably crisp and decent out of a bottle. Better than Bud? A good budweiser isn't too bad actually, but it is wildly inconsistent. Have not drank it in years.

766 Steel-can Tecate was a righteous beer.

I've hated Corona from the first sip.

Love Negra Modelo though, which is brewed by the same folks as Corona.

Negra Modelo might be the smoothest commercially brewed beer in the world.

Flavor wise, I prefer an authentic Newcastle Ale (can't get that here anymore. local "Newcastle" is brewed by Molson, in Canada) REAL Newcastle is brewed in Newcastle, England.

Same with Guinness Stout. Buy it in the U.K., it's clearly superior to what the brew here in the U.S.

Reason #2 I detest Corona Beer.

Trend-Lemmings. Anytime "the herd" thunders off together in the direction of a nearby cliff, I do try to step aside and let the stampede proceed without me.

770 The Moscow Times:

The head of Russia's Orthodox Church exhorted believers on Sunday to pray from their homes in the latest call from religious leaders around the world to avoid gatherings that could help the coronavirus' spread.

Russia has been relatively lightly hit so far, with nine deaths and 1,534 cases, but it recorded 270 new infections in the last day and is stepping up containment measures.

"Refrain from visiting churches," the state-rung RIA news agency cited Patriarch Kirill as saying on Sunday, even though Orthodox services went ahead, including one led by him.

He urged people to adhere strictly to authorities' instructions "before someone dies in our families."


I guess Orthodox services are still going on in Russia, but people are being discouraged from attending them.

Oh, for Christ's sake. Let me guess: trolling for gifts is also involved in this "celebration".

Celebration of your spawn should be limited to:

1) Baby shower
2) Christening (if applicable)
3) Birthdays (limited to the spawn's friends and very close family members)
4) Bar/Bat Mitzvah (if applicable)
5) Confirmation (if applicable)
6) High school graduation
7) College or specialty school graduation
Wedding

That's it.

No "gender reveals". No kindergarten graduations. No "my kid got a good citizenship award for not beating the crap out of the other kids this week". No doubling up and asking for a confirmation gift as well as a bar mitzvah gift.

None of that.

The '102 was just North (IIRC), of the Wally Byum's Airstream Trailer factory, on the same side (Southbound) of the 101.

Rode that ride many a time with my Old Man, when he had Shore Duty as a U.S. Navy Recruiter, at the Watts station, near downtown L.A.

During the riots, Dad and all the other sailors, had loaded M-1 Garands leaning on their desks.

The locals were told of this, and they stayed well away from the recruiting station.

Still, that was a tense number of days at home, every day the Old Man rolled off to work.

Living in Buena Park, we could easily see the smoke from the fires.

Anyone claiming Hawaii is overwhelmed is obviously full of shit. There are always people like that -- they want to glom on and get some of the attention for themselves.

Hawaii is near the bottom of the list on Coronavirus cases.

Current IHME projections put Hawaii at a total of 372 total projected deaths.

809 800- Fenelon, a lot of rich athletes have been flocking to Dubai. I don't know if it might be a tax haven similar to Monaco, but the country (UAE) has definitely made efforts to attract an international crowd, unlike Saudi Arabia.

There's a tennis tournament there and the crowd always seem to include a significant number of westerners who dress like westerners, while the natives dress traditionally. I think they might look the other way on "western" behavior up to a point and I guess those who frequent it know where that point is.

Posted by: GnuBreed at April 05, 2020 04:36 AM (Z4rgH)

Plastigauge would work, if I could get it in "thick". I tried a piece of wadded-up facial tissue dampened with spit, and placed it on the base of an unloaded cartridge, and pressed the breechblock down on it. I got a little hockey puck, with a raised knob on the back side corresponding to the firing pin hole in the breechblock, and a small protrusion on the front side corresponding to the firing pin dimple in the primer. This disc was about as thick as a dime! I think that is way, way out of tolerance. I think .005 is in the ballpark for clearance between the cartridge base and the face of the breechblock. This huge clearance explains the consistent failure to fire: most of the firing pin's travel is used up pushing the entire cartridge forward in the chamber, leaving only the tiniest dimple in the primer. And I think there is a good chance, that if the cartridge did fire, that the case head would separate from the walls due to lack of support at the rear.

I will try to get some Plasticene at the dollar store or WalMart. That would give me an accurate measure.

The IHME model predicts Wyoming will peak around May 1st, with 4 deaths per day peak, and a total of 140 deaths after it's over. So no biggie for Wyoming.

882 AOP, I was just trying to put you on a track to measure the problem. Iirc, Plastigauge comes in a variety of diameters, to accurately measure different gaps.

I feel sure that once you know the dimension of the problem, you can solve it.

886 Wyoming still hasn't had a death from Wuhan

Wyoming is doing something unique in the 50 states -- Working on state laws to allow ranchers to sell meat cuts direct.

There's a loophole in FDA regs that allow 'owners' of livestock to do their own butchering. So they are writing laws to buy mini 'shares' of a critter, thus shortcutting the need (and expense) of FDA inspectors.

I wish them luck. Fuck the federal bureaucracy; witness the awesome fuckup power of a fully armed and operational CDC. Or FDA, in this case.
