Bare Bones ONT

Not quite. I had all the content on my laptop, but I'm out here in the woods of Georgia far enough that I can't get it to connect to the internet through my cell phone. It seems that my iPad CAN just grab enough of a signal to post, so this is what you're gonna get.

You're not going to get any pictures.

You're not going to get my usual formatting.

You're not going to get any videos.

You are going to get a few links I had in an email, with minimal content.

Suck it up. Your ancestors conquered the continent with less content than this.

Armchair archaeologists are discovering ancient historic sites during lockdown Neat use of downtime.

How and why Muslims deluded themselves about Islam Short answer: They're humans acting human.

This changes everything about Covid-19 Most folks are asymptomatic.

Thirty-six thousand feet under Left to their own devices, people will do the most amazing things.

11 gross animals you can eat in a survival situation

Experts give Wyoming an F for social distancing "Experts" are idiots

What to do with freezer burned meat Tips to make your food dollars go further.

And that's about it. Maybe if you want better ONTs you shouldn't go around in the comments rating mine at "70%".

Members of the Dem-Media Complex are beginning to suffer severe CDS (COVID-19 Derangement Syndrome), on top of TDS. They keep proclaiming that PDT and Republican Governors are bringing us to catastrophe, tomorrow, but it never happens. Repetitive public failure has to eventually wear on even those narcissistic bozos.

Greg Gutfeld had a good observation the other day. He said that all the Dem-Media Complex does is complain. They offer no constructive suggestions or plans to help the country get out of this situation, other than Lockdown Forever. And of course, everything Trump does is wrong and must be complained about. PDT's called them out on this in task force briefings. When a reporter asked him why we haven't tested everyone if the US yet, he snapped back that if we had tested everyone by now, the press would complain that it wasn't done fast enough or that he isn't testing all 350 million of us every single day.

Back when Dayton Hamvention (which shoulda been next weekend) was at Hara Arena there was a dead mall about a mile down the road that was used as overflow parking for the maybe 50 spots on site used for handicapped.
A Sears tire store was the sole retail remaining, the rest was ~100 acres of parking, with buses running every 15 minutes to Hara.

I'm right there with you, Jewells. It doesn't help my mental state to be locked in Maskachusetts with an imbecile governor and a state full of Karens. I mean, I'm a depressive normally, but this shit just pegs me every damned day, so that when I am not screaming in the car, I'm sitting at home completely motionless because I don't have the energy to do anything anymore.

It even affects my coming here, because (and this is not Ace's or the cobs' fault, it is the state of the country) so much of the HQ is either the Kung Flu or the bastards of the Deep State laughing at we deplorables.

We're being held hostage by animals who don't care if we fight back and get a sexual thrill of punishing us if we do - I give you Whitmer's "you keep protesting, I keep extending the lockdown" and CA's "if you stay open, we will cut off your power and water."

Jewells and Mary, I hear you 100%.

Jewells, could I share some advice that's helped keep me sane personally? Just start blocking people left and right. Make them STFU and go away. If people are screaming at and abusing you online over you sharing your own political POV on your little piece of FB, or wherever, you don't need those people in your life anymore. I don't GAF how close they think they are to you or how entitled they feel to scream.

Over the past several years I've pretty much blocked *everyone* who pisses me off anywhere online, and I mean everyone. If a day goes by where I *haven't* blocked someone at either FB or Quora, it's unusual.

There are more and more out on the streets and in restaurants, and I think even in a lot of the places still on lockdown, it's just not being effectively enforced anymore. That's my impression anyway, based on what I'm hearing.

Of course, there are exceptions, like in the domain of Gauleiter Whitmer.

This makes me depressed and extremely angry as well. But I still, desperately, try to look at the bright side.

Look at Sheley Luther. She now doesn't really have to go back to work if she doesn't want to. I would bet the 77-year-old barber who was forced out of business, has a GoFundMe up and running as well.

We as conservatives still have tons to do, but at least we've gotten much better at supporting each other in numerous ways, both online and IRL.

As I've said before, I would love to see an online program developed to help people like me with obtaining low-interest loan funds to move from blue states to red states. I would be so thankful and make sure I pay back every penny, even if it takes me the rest of my life. I do know I'm not gonna stay in California the rest of my life.

I think the Millennials are going to revolt sooner or later.

And they will want to enjoy an un-hurried round of drinks with friends in their favorite small pub, before going to a play that has a wait-list of months.

With my circles, I can't avoid having a lot of leftist "friends." There's only one I regularly mix it up with, and that's only because she seems to view it as her job to play "fact-checker" when I post something. The lockdown policy is so obviously laughable, though, she's been getting the worst of it recently, and I think has kind of given it up.

Alas, there are too many people from my hometown and other walks of life on there for me to give it up just yet.

Don't wait. Block the leftist assholes right now. Don't ever let them abuse you again or say one single cross word to you. You, your time and your well-being are much, much too valuable.

Don't tell them why either. Just block them. David Viscott used to say, "Don't tell your enemy what you're going to do. JUST DO IT." If they want to talk on the phone or IRL about why you blocked them, you don't have to explain shit to them there either, although if you do choose to, bear in mind it's also your God-given right to be as hurtful to them as they've been to you.

172 44 Just had someone tell me that ABC news said Texas had the highest death rates ever, since they reopened two weeks ago. I posted the last 24 hour rate, which was 45. Then I posted the rates at NY, NJ, IL and CA. At that point, she decided to shut up.
Posted by: notsothoreau at May 15, 2020 09:54 PM (JKNZq)

the left plays such bullshit with the numbers constantly - anytime you see the word "Death Rate" get extremely suspicious, because there are at least a dozen different ways to calculate it, and all of the are orders of magnitude different from each other.

And the biggest trick is to use a method that is designed to give a high number, and compare it to a method that gives a low number. They do this every day.

What happened in Texas is that we had the highest number of single day *deaths* , but it was still only 58 (iirc) and it was very close to where the daily number has been bouncing around lately. Just looked, today it was 56. Sad, of course, but nothing close to overwhelming any medical facilities, and not representing any big new jump. Also, deaths are a lagging indicator, representing cases begun 2 - 4 weeks ago. New hospitalizations is the most relevant number, and nothing terrible is happening there.

Scott Israel of Parkland infamy had his day in the sun as well - feted on CNN while Dana Loesch was offered up to the jackals in that forum in FL. The truth eventually came out, and he is getting what he deserved back then.

Cuomo is flying high right now, but he's a terrible politician. His approval will eventually revert to the mean, as his conduct in handling this latest crisis comes to light - and it will.

People will always disappoint you.

If your happiness is dependent on someone besides maybe a spouse? You are in trouble.

Even your Children will disappoint you at times.

So I am now to the point where I take ownership of my own contentment or happiness.

If others wish to come along? That is even better.

But I am not going to depend on them.

Chess is hard because it's hard to find a partner who's evenly matched. Almost everyone I've played in person, either I'm biting my tongue because they're making huge mistakes, or else they completely wreck me every time, and neither is much fun.

very sad for you, and I'm sorry. But this is an example of one of the areas where there's going to be a new wave of unemployment even as other parts of the economy open up again - higher education. Nobody knows how many small schools and colleges will fold because of this crisis, but it's likely to be a whole lot of them.

The great irony - to survive they all need to be pushing for this country to open up as fast as possible, to try and save their fall semesters. Instead, they're almost all still cheerleading their own destruction, and they'll continue doing so until it's far too late to save themselves.

Same with "C" rations. When you've burned a 4,000 calorie day, humping ruck, the cardboard box the 'rats would come in, looked appealing, too.

267 Someone mentioned earlier today that the death rate among those under 60 years of age is 1 in 22,000.

So doing the math (I know, not supposed to be math here), that means that with opening up, and if the worst case scenario occurs with everyone in the country under 60 being exposed, there would be around 11,000 deaths.

This is on par with the number of murders every year, half the suicide rate, and about 1/5th of the number of traffic fatalities.

So, I am pretty confident in saying that the Karens' hoped for death orgy in states that reopen, is not going to happen.

280 very sad for you, and I'm sorry. But this is an example of one of the areas where there's going to be a new wave of unemployment even as other parts of the economy open up again - higher education. Nobody knows how many small schools and colleges will fold because of this crisis, but it's likely to be a whole lot of them.

The great irony - to survive they all need to be pushing for this country to open up as fast as possible, to try and save their fall semesters. Instead, they're almost all still cheerleading their own destruction, and they'll continue doing so until it's far too late to save themselves.

Oh, I'm well aware. It just sucks when you get caught in the fallout after your whole profession goes belly-up, even one you know to be corrupt and in serious need of being taken down a few pegs.

I feel worse for the smaller schools--or if not for them, then for the towns that are in a sense dependent on them. Fulton, just east of here, has a couple of small liberal-arts colleges, including Westminster (where Churchill gave his Iron Curtain speech), and is a very lovely place, but if those colleges were to go under, it would be up Sh*t Creek. It doesn't deserve that either, but that's what would happen.

Jackson is a no-go. Teton county is solidly blue. Cody (my home town) is heading that way, alas. Sheridan is still okay, but the East slope of the Bighorns is exactly the kind of thing that would attract the locusts.

I like the Northeast corner, Newcastle area. But August draws the fucking bikers, a nightmare during the Rally weeks.

Southwest you have Fort Bridger, Green River. Aside from the existence of I-80, very nice areas.

The backside of the Wind River range as well.

Problem is, the fucking locusts always find their way in.

But seriously, Alaskans have way more guns.

I'll admit that Wyoming residents have a lot. We were the second state to go to constitutional carry, and even before that literally everyone I knew had a gun. My late sainted mother, who would never harm a fly, carried a gun in her purse long before it was legal, as did the late Mrs. Borgia.

I had my first and only so far last weekend in a grocery store. I was headed for the checkout and I headed up an empty aisle against the arrow. (GASP!) I'm half way down the aisle when Karen entered in and I guess she thought I would stop and turn around but I kept going. She stopped. Froze and I could see her tense up as I passed she said, "Wrong way!!!" At first I was going to say, Fck off but just gave her an, Okay Karen.

Four protesters in Tyvek suits, gloves and face masks lined up around 17 body bags on the steps of the Old Florida Historic Capitol in front of the Grim Reaper on Tuesday.

A group of "concerned Floridians" staged the protest early Tuesday morning.

The body bags were meant to represent the lives of Floridians who have or who may die from COVID-19.

One protester was dressed as a larger than life Donald Trump, wearing a striped prison uniform.

The protest was organized by Indivisible, a grassroots progressive movement, to send a message to Gov. Ron DeSantis, asking him "to listen to medical experts and not cave to pressure to open the state too fast, risking more lives."

434 Dr T said: "I feel worse for the smaller schools--or if not for them, then for the towns that are in a sense dependent on them. Fulton, just east of here, has a couple of small liberal-arts colleges, including Westminster (where Churchill gave his Iron Curtain speech), and is a very lovely place, but if those colleges were to go under, it would be up Sh*t Creek. It doesn't deserve that either, but that's what would happen."

So, an idea...there are a LOT of parents looking for quality, non diversity crazy higher ed for their children. The kind that was (I hear) prevalent in the 1920's-1950's. If you know some like minded profs y'all could start online, and then wait until the moribund small colleges go belly up and buy the buildings cheap.
This happened in our former home town--a classical academy started, grew, and ended up buying buildings from a failed school to train teachers. And miracle of miracles, it revived the nearby neighborhood of beautiful historic houses.

We are in a cross-hairs moments. Some things are dying or finally recognizing that they are dead. But new and better options suited for the time will spring up.

Keep us posted. I'm so darn concerned about higher ed and its failures and I suspect I'm not alone, and there are likely some well-heeled folks with high school aged kids that might stake you if you can show proof of concept.

Actually Tucker missed the boat on that one. (As much as I like Tucker, there's times when he's quite dense and completely misses something obvious)

it's right there - TO THE SAME LEVEL AS CHINA DOES!

China only gives the WHO a tiny fraction of the money we've been giving it. This is announcing a 90% cut in our funding - unless China steps up their game, which of course they will never do.

I'm sure there was. Never saw him in concert, but I once attended a showing of Purple Rain because it was on a double bill with Heavy Metal at the discount theatre.

Studies done in San Diego, LA, Miami (I think), and a city in Germany (I'm less sure about that) and NYC all were showing 20%-ish antibody presence. Those were all preliminary and might be off a bit. But they were also urban populations. I think you'd expect to see lower spread in suburbs and rural areas, and nationwide testing should give lower results as its an average.

I don't think it would skew quite that much, though. Spain may just be an outlier, too.

Speaking of pubs...

I went to Calgary today, in an effort to do some shopping. Stopped at my friend's place, and dropped off some Dodge pickup doors and fenders he had acquired in Arizona. Yes, my Suburban swallowed 4 doors, and two front fenders, and still had a little room left. Anyway, he told me that Calgary and Brooks are the two towns in Alberta with the worst
WuFlu stats, and they are shut down pretty tight.

Drove on in to the city. Wanted to go to Princess Auto. Big line-up of people "socially distancing" to get in. Eff that. Drive on; went to gas station, and filled up for 80 cents per liter. Cheapest gas has been for years, which is a good thing, as the odds of me being hired again to help find more of the shit are pretty poor right now.

Went to the pet store, and got food and doggie treats for Pogo. Figured I'd go to Peter's drive-thru for a burger. Cars lined up around the block. Eff that, drove on. Stopped at an auto supply store, bought the socket and screwdriver on my want list. I was the only customer in the place. Drove on to Chicken-on-the-Way, a Calgary landmark fried chicken joint. They were open, only one customer inside, and I got chicken to go. They never had dine-in anyway. Ate that in the parking lot, and Pogo shared.

Drove on to Wally World. Line-up out front, all spaced 2 meters apart. Eff that. Drove back on to my friend's place again, stopped and had some beers with him. Headed home from there. Grocery store in Beiseker was closed, but the one in Acme was open. Got what I needed there. As I was driving out of Acme, Lo! And Behold! The Acme Hotel pub had their "open" sign lit, and the door was open. If I had not already had as much beer as I should have when driving, I would have stopped in.

Only reason I ask, Insom, is cause I gots a son, grown, who is an insomniac by all accounts.
Can't sleep until he needs to get up.
I think it's a learned thang, but I don't know.
Do you have some insight?
I have a soldier's ability to fall asleep at the first chance.
Can get some REM's and wake refreshed.
For him, a nap seems to be a tease.
Posted by: MarkY at May 16, 2020 12:05 AM (HbhkC)

I'm not sure what insight I can offer, other than that it sucks. I don't think it's learned. In my case it's been a mixture of genetics and depression with a dash of obsessive and intrusive thoughts that like to kick in when it's time to sleep. Things like cognitive-behavioral therapy and medication can help.

567 Today in 1944 at Anzio, the Allied forces were champing at the bit preparing for the breakout, as advances were finally being made on the Monte Cassino front in central Italy.

Just like the COVID-19, the breakout is imminent!



May 15, 1944
News from II Corps and FEC still looks promising. Both corps have moved well forward - as much as 4-5,000 yds. Several key points taken. Also quite a number of prisoners.
Our front will remain static for a while it seems, but we are ready.
Two 8" guns are expected tomorrow. They will be a welcome addition to outrange Gerry's 170's.



II Corp and the FEC (French Expeditionary Command) were key elements of the advance on Cassino.

VI Corps artilklery was gaining more equipment (8" howitzers) to match up with the German 170 mm cannons.

Did get something done after the meds kicked in. Planted a lot in the veggie garden, onion sets (soak them a bit and dip the ends in rooting powder for those to get any early start), second planting of peas, also squash and pumpkins.

Wash the jeans in hot water, with your usual detergent, but add a cup of Stoddard solvent. Odorless paint thinner will work. Safe to dry the clothing thus washed in an electric dryer; not sure about a gas dryer. Hang on the line is good, too.

groovy girl, also we usually take 2 deer from the herd each year. We harvest them like we harvest vegetables from the garden.
In 2012, we had a drought,, and got EHD here. Kilt all the old deer, and killed about 25% of the oaks in our woods.
Since, anyone can kill any buck they want, but the doe are off limits.
Our garden has a 7' fence. The doe feel protected, and bring those big-ass bucks right close to the house.
Last 8 deer killed here, 7 have been kilt off the porch.
I'm a lazy man.

707 My dad used to tell tales (?urban legend?) of the Goums using cover of night to infiltrate German lines, sneak into tents and to determine if it was an Allied or German tent would feel for the dogtags around the sleeping occupant's neck. If no dogtags, slit the throat. I don't know how apocryphal that is.

Well...


During The Falklands War, the Argentine draftees were terrified of the Gurkhas.

Brit or Argie soldiers laced their boots opposite (Brits also drive on the left).

The belief, at least on the Argie side, was that the Gurkhas would come silently in the night, while the Argies were sleeping, feel the lacing on the boots, and if right over left, a kukri to the throat. In Silence.

Or maybe he was mugged by cops just following the lockdown/mask orders.

A lot of eyes have been opened to the cops supposedly being on the side of law and order. Many cops have gone full Cheka. Cops in the US should never go full Cheka.

Usually kept at 1/2 inch at most, my goatee hasn't been trimmed in nearly 3 months now.

And about 7 or 8 weeks ago, I just gave up shaving.

I look like either a homeless person or a serial killer, depending on the hat.

No.

714 But the German "dog tags" were quite different, so you could definitely tell the difference just my feeling them.

The Soviets had little pieces of paper on which they filled out their personal info, rolled up inside a capsule which did/didn't prove to be water-tight ("smyertniy medalyon" or death medallion), often sewn into their belt or trousers.

Lots of good Russian videos now on UToob of people recovering Red Army soldier remains, and trying to find legible papers inside the capsules. Efforts made, when the info is recovered, to contact families. Very cool.

An honest question, here.

Proven as the most badass and fearless of fighters, especially against stacked odds and/or in close quarters.

Given, and respected down to the molecular level.

But, where are they in the rankings of effective shooters, be it from bad-breath distance to OMG curvature of the earth range?

I don't ask this disdainfully.

But if I had to task a Battalion of Gurkhas, I'd damn sure want to fit 'em to the job at hand?

741 dIb - no, and in fact I was in the process of searching for a name. Actually, I think there are various local groups.

There's a Russian Federation-level charity or governmental organization that supports preservation of history from the Great Patriotic War. Trying to find that name too.

As of 10 years ago, there were still "amateur" efforts on Okinawa, by both American and Japanese, to explore and document war sites (mostly caves).

In Russia, all of this really only began in the 1990s, after the Soviet collapse. So now it's going strong. And, sadly, there is *so much* to explore and document (losses in any of the many major Soviet battles, win or lose, would be comparable to entire US campaigns).

744 This is *interesting* and I'm not sure I buy a lot of the leaps and conclusions. However there is one basic idea that jumps out at me. Trump has the NSA working on election integrity because the media just spent four years convincing everyone that Russia was interfering, and China has openly declared their intentions to.

If you're one of the dems' election fixers, how sure are you that the NSA doesn't know you?

Last year when we got up to our river place there was a huge raccoon ambling on the deck, bold as brass. The dogs didn't notice him but i did from inside. My hopes-to-be son was busy looking up whether we could shoot the varmint (hah!); meanwhile my husband got the shotgun and dispatched him forthwith, when the dang thing was treed.
Plop...dogs went nuts.

Fast forward to last fall and we had one of the best days of the year skeet shooting with a master gunsman--perfectt fall day at a beautiful outdoor range. Hate to think of the creep governor of the state shutting down shooting ranges.

One thing I find amazing, as I blaze through dozens of military histories - how so many books lack any maps at all, or decent ones. Often rendering the narrative incomprehensible, or at best difficult. WTF?

David Glantz, the big name in Red Army and Great Patriotic War history in the US, has a few books with maps that were done for $47, or something. Basically terrain maps with near-incomprehensible scribbles (literally hand-written) on them. In books of the densest, most detailed narratives. Huh?

803 One thing I find amazing, as I blaze through dozens of military histories - how so many books lack any maps at all, or decent ones. Often rendering the narrative incomprehensible, or at best difficult. WTF?

Posted by: rhomboid at May 16, 2020 01:53 AM (El6T/)


I find that problem about maps when I'm reading Roman history, or any ancient History for that matter. If I don't have maps to show me where the Marcomanni were, e.g., it's all just so
much gibberish.

About the only military history books for which I don't need maps, although quite useful when they show troop locations/dispositions, are books on the US Civil War. I'm familiar with US geography, but not necessarily the particular unit locations in a given battle.

But other than that, yeah, give me some decent maps to go along with the text. I have one oversized Civil War book where the battle maps are the main focus and are really artwork (full two-page spreads), showing troop movements/locations daily or even every couple of hours for a given battle. Really helped bring those battles to life, so to speak, especially how close run a thing some of those battles were; some unit getting to a crossroads first, e.g. Reading that Civil War book is almost like reading a chess book, that whole 'mass and maneuver' part of war in those days.

The diesel smell thing. You can blame the new washing machines and the low water usage requirements. Miley has never had to deal with really dirty, farmer dirty clothes. You know, ground in dirt, grease, diesel fuel, hydraulic oil, motor oil, and other shit. Nor with someone like me who delights in wallowing in it.

The old washing machines could handle that, with maybe 2 wash cycles, which was no problem. Lots of water, which with the detergent could get that out of the clothes.

The newer ones can't.

The last decent washing machine we had is still out in a shed. The transmission seal went bad, and let oil start coming in the wash tub (and presumably water into the transmission).

I think I might, when I get a chance, get that thing out and look into fixing it. That thing would clean the dirtiest clothes you ever saw. Full water usage, I don't know what the tub size was, 10, 15 gals?

If I could fix it, I'd have a washing machine that would work.

We have been sorely pressed, we cannot deny it. The Karens, of such moral superiority, as they claim, are both against and among us. The lights of a perverted science have darkened the lamps by which we see.

Look at the Horde, the Morons; look at what they have stood up to. Grim and gay with their maskless cry "We can take it," and their war-time mood of "What is good enough for anybody is good enough for us, if you brought enough for everybody".

We have not asked that the rules of the game should be modified. We shall never descend to Herr Inshalahpundit and his Buzzfrauen level, but if anybody likes to play rough we can play rough too. Von Goldberg and his doggish doppelganger have sown the wind; let them reap the poochie whirlwind. And clean up after themselves.

Neither the length of the struggle nor any form of severity which various elected idiots shall impose will make us weary or shall make us quit. Bars and personal care salons are open-for such is our ancient heritage.

868 A young orange tabby (1-2 years) adopted Publius' family. His name is Jake and he is, according to my brother, everything you'd want in a cat.
The existing cats are not pleased. But Jake is super friendly. Pushy, even, but that's OK. A smart kitty who knows how to pick a home.
He will soon lose his balls. Shhh! Don't tell him.

878 A big wildfire out north and east of here toward the 'glades, only 40 percent contained, jumped I-75 and got closer to us. Smoke has been in the air for days, and one of the smoke detectors had just enough dust in it to start, at 4 a.m., that annoying once-a-minute chirp.

Had to use the Little Giant to reach it, and now I can't get back to sleep.

879 When I was growing up we had an orange tabby. Looked like Morris. He was hell on wheels. Loved that cat!

Had another orange tabby more recently. Max. Best. Cat. Ever. He was my bud, and I miss him.

Now we have 2 orange tabbys, well, I guess they are considered yellow tabbys. Brothers. Fun, and yet at times, exasperating. Still, gotta love 'em.

Glad to hear that Mommie Dearest's directives are being ignored in rural areas.

That appears to be the case pretty much across the country. The Cummos, PutzKissers, Mommie Dearests, and BlewSomes are starting to screech at ultrasonic levels because their Holy Dictates are being ignored.

It's healthy for them.

"Stealing a classic play from his neighbor in New York, Governor Wolf has ordered patients with active disease back into nursing homes. A bold strategy. Let's see if that pays off for him."

The death of every nursing home resident is square on the heads of these governors. Remember it.

For some value of "bitch". Man, that is one ugly tranny, even by the standards of trannies.

PutzKisser in Illinois has finally admitted that his wife and daughter have been jetting all over the country while his state was "under lockdown".

Ca has been on borrowed time. If they lose 10% of the top 1000 taxpayers in the state, CA will fold. I think 600 taxpayers make the entire state budget work, even as poorly as it does now.

CA governance since Reagan should be taught everywhere as what not to do.
