Thursday Night's ONT Needs A Hero!

I've been consuming a lot of comic book related entertainment lately, so I thought I'd talk about comics in tonight's ONT. If that's not your bag, just scroll down and join the gabfest, but meanwhile I'm going to talk comics, how'd that sound?

(As always, if any of these images are too small to read, right click on them and open them in their own tab)

Personally, I've always been a DC guy. Marvel just never caught my interest as a kid. I was aware of Marvel, and kinda knew some of their heroes (enough to laugh at these parody Spider-Man strips, (Fappo! and French Kiss are the funniest)), but it was DC that I spent my money on. I have seen all of the MCU films as an adult and will admit that they are much better than any DC live action films since Christian Bale played Batman.

Back in the day comics were silly. Ever see one of those ridiculous covers where Superman is guarding a fire plug from the citizens of Metropolis who are dying of thirst or where Joker is threatening Batman with a pair of fish?

Silly

Originally, they would draw the cover first, and then have the writers concoct a story to fit it. It made for a lot of silly stories, and panels that were unintentionally erotic (unintentional? Maybe sometimes, but is it any surprise that the guy who invented Wonder Woman, a busty woman in a skin tight suit with wrist cuffs who tied men up with her magic lasso was a SDMB freak? His name was William Marston and he was a psychologist who lived with three woman in a “love unit” and also invented the lie detector).

Bondage.jpg
I rest my case

I love dick.jpg
Unintentional?

By the time the 80s rolled around and I started buying comics, all that had changed and comics weren't silly anymore.

Laugh.jpg
He thinks they weren't silly!

OK, some of that had changed. Aside from the inherent silliness of a grown ass adult putting on a costume and prowling the streets at night looking for bad guys, there were still silly plots galore. There was serious stuff too, however. Neil Gaiman's Sandman was a formidable bit of literature. Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns wasn't kid's stuff either. It's not so much that comics “grew up” as it is that they started adding mature stories to the traditional Biff! Pow! Sock! superhero slugfests they had always published. And humor. There is a surprising amount of humor to be found in comics, much of it poking fun at the conventions of the medium.

Entrogen.jpg


By the 90s I had pretty much stopped buying comics, and that's where things stayed until about a year ago, when someone mentioned a comics arc that seemed interesting (Injustice. After Joker tricks Superman into killing Lois Lane, who was pregnant with their child, Supes murders Joker and decides to rule the world with an iron fist to keep everyone “safe”. He's not a benevolent dictator either, he's one of the most powerful beings in the universe who ruthlessly murders anyone who opposes him).

That got me interested again, and I found that I had missed a lot. DC and Marvel ran a whole series of books under the “Amalgam” label which featured a combined universe.

lobo duck.jpg
This is either stupid or brilliant, I don't know which

Warner Brothers also owns DC and there have been a number of, er, questionable crossovers.

Bat fudd.jpg

Martian.jpg

I haven't read any of them, but I'm intrigued they exist. I don't really read comics much, even now, but I have taken to watching DC animated movies and TV programs. Many of these are in fact excellent. There's a new Harley Quinn series that just wrapped its second season that is not canon and is most definitely NOT for kids. Where did it end up? Here's a clue:

Ivy.jpeg
This still is not from the series, but as a meme it nails it

Ahh yes, memes. Superheroes abound in memes. Here's a good example from today's headlines:

zoom.jpg

And here's a piece of fan art that is not only well drawn, but it's a neat little melding of fandoms as well:

Bat Lord 2.jpg


And that's about it. Basically this ONT came about because I had all of the images above in my ONT pictures folder and crafted an ONT around them. If you don't like it, I'm sorry, I doubt I'll do one like this again. I hope it at least amused you, most of the above pics wound up in the folder because they amused me.

Tonight's ONT brought to you by impeccable logic:

Famously described by Larry Niven.

But it depends on who is doing the writing.

It's also why lately Superman has been paired with Wonder Woman instead, since she's apparently now Alpha level or some shit instead of being just 'super normal' with magic gadgets, like in the old days.

90 I never got into mainstream comics too much as a kid because the paper was garbage and the art was mediocre. I read Savage Sword of Conan, which had solid art. It wasn't until Image comics emerged and spurred some improvement that I really became interested for the most part though.

94 My 1960s Marvel Comics collection was stolen in 1979. Couldn't look a comic in the face after that until I saw a spinner that had a Spider-Man story of death of Aunt May. When Ditko first drew her, she looked like she was already one foot in the grave, so I thought good, time she died.

She got better and became Marisa Tormei and caught Robert Downey's eye. Somehow.

Anyway, after the breakthrough of buying dead Aunt May, I started looking at comics again, just in time for the incredible 1980s explosive revolution of comic shops and independent and small-time publishers. Over here in the corner, that big wall of long boxes? Mostly 1980s - almost everything published in those years.

I've noted to our kids before that when they read them, they'll find the X-Men and all the comics sort-of stop about the time the twins were born!!!

I thought I was collecting for posterity, for my kids to enjoy these treasures. They don't care. Everything's online and old yellowing comic books smell funny.

The one comic I didn't pick up on at the time was some cheap-looking black-and-white comic that was obviously riffing off of Teen Titans and X-Men and the then-hot Ninja craze mixed with anthropomorphics. Yes, I put Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 back on the shelf.

Did I tell you about when I first read Amazing Fantasy #15 with the origin of Spider-Man? How about when we met Stan Lee?

Even in single-digit ages, I *got* that kind of humor and it still resonates, today.

But honestly...Frank doesn't really want to kill everyone. The Punisher has had more character derailment than anyone else in comics. Marvel HATES him and hates Punisher fans. But the want the money so....

But Punisher: Born is legit good, despite being written by a fucking Brit who does not fully grasp the character.

As far as TWD goes, I'm of the opposite opinion. I never read the graphic novels religiously, but to me they were a lot better than the show.

As for Preacher, I watched the first two episodes of that, and it was f*cking retarded. So the comic must have been REALLY bad.

Then Sim just fell apart. I have the bound collections up 'til then, and not the earliest but most of the monthly issues. His rages about feminism-emotionalism versus reason-masculinity were ... fascinating, and prescient.

Sad the series bombed. I don't even know if he ever reached his goal of 400 issues or whatever it was.

But then, when you start your comic off with a misspelled name on the main character... what can you expect?

My BFF, been friends since 4th grade can no longer play because he's got nerve damage in his left hand. I worry about him. He fucking shredded. Collected and played Jackson, ESP and BC Rich guitars. now he can't even do simple chord progressions. His dad told him to keep a couple of his axes as collectors, at the very least.

Really sucks. I was always a very mediocre player. I have a good acoustic guitar and an '89 BC Rich Gunslinger. They feel neglected right now. I feel them glaring at me.

264 I got out of comics probably ten years ago. Civil War was fun and had some great storylines, they were still rooting out a few Skrulls here and there, and Norman Osborn's Dark Avengers were in the saddle.
Oddly enough, Osborn as Iron Patriot, trying to work out Sentry's issues with him, was as much actual humanity as you'd ever read in comics.
Also oddly enough, in the 2000's, some of the best stories were to be found in the cheesecake sector, stuff like "Witchblade."
I got out when it started getting all woke. 0bama on the cover of Amazing Spider-Man was the death knell, so I guess that was circa 2009 or so.

My take on it at the time was that it was something that needed to be said, but not in that format. I tried reading it and my eyes tended to glaze over. Either the font he used or the ink color on the newsprint, or the layout of the text.

Contradicting myself, a lot of it was stuff that you just learned by hanging around men in a sane society, and of it isn't a sane society writing it down in a comic book isn't going to do any good.

But maybe doing it like he did reached some people who needed it. Comic book readers are a superstitious lot.

Ostensibly they test stuff out with goofy tests and see how useful they are (and they have shown some pretty cool stuff).

But mostly they are like a bunch of 'rons, out being dumb and crazy with survival equipment. I'm pretty sure the Nikki woman on there is one of the ettes. Its kinda fun to watch and like I said some of the gear is pretty amazing.

284 I dropped out of comics around Civil War. It was a decent idea for a story but all wrong for Marvel Comics to make it that real and that critical to the universe. It crossed a line where you shouldn't in superhero stuff to asking questions that have no good answers in a comic book world. Its okay to do alternate dimension stuff like that (say, Marvels or Kingdom Come) but doing it in your main universe is just a bad precedent.

The last comic I ever read from Marvel was one where Captain America was against the (extremely thinly veiled) Tea Party.

287 A lot of the early Image stuff was great. Groundbreaking, even. It was a huge breath of fresh air, hot young creators busting out and making their own studio.

Almost none of them could keep a schedule going or wanted to. Erik Larsen and Todd MacFarlane were the exceptions.

The early issues of WILD CATS had SO much potential...so did Wetworks. But Jim Lee gets bored too easily and fucked off from his own creation. And Portacio had some health issues, if I remember right. So that comic withered on the vine. As did The MAXX and most of the rest....

I cringed and struggled with the increasingly SJWness of Supergirl.

First they make her stepsister a lez and we waste a bunch of screen time on her and her girlfriend. (All these shows could be cut down to 15 minutes and be much better.)

Then there was the awful "Supergirl is stronger than Superman episode." Well, who cares, it's just on Earth Fem.

Then, for no good reason, they introduce an alien "trans" - apparently extraterrestrials have body dysphoria problems, too.

I finally had to give it up, though, when a scene opened with a bedroom, and Brainiac 5 has obviously just spent the night with the not-a-girl ET who is still lolling in bed. Aaakkkkk. Enough is too much.

300 The early issues of WILD CATS had SO much potential...so did Wetworks. But Jim Lee gets bored too easily and fucked off from his own creation.

Yeah the first story run of WILDCATS was intriguing, it had an interesting universe but he is like a cat that runs after the next thing. They should have consulted with someone like John Byrne before starting up their little projects. Byrne wouldn't start something without like 3 years of scripts ready out of the box, then adding to them as he went.

The early Image guys had like 1 year, maybe, just one storyline run and they dove right in. Some of it was pretty good and interesting. Early Savage Dragon was wild and wooly fun, then went... very weird. The most consistent and prepared creator was Todd McFarlane but he wrote himself into a box because there did not seem to be any end game for his character, but he put a time limit on him anyway.

Gorgeous art and wild ideas only can take you so far.

Yup, goes back to endings. Spawn especially needed to have an end state in mind. But...nah, it'll be fine, seems to have been Todd's attitude.

Erik Larsen went weird and woke, bad combo, but he did new and interesting things in comics.

Sadly, WILDCATS got turned over to Alan Moore and he augered it into the ground. Fucking half talented hack, just phoning it in. But the opening 6 issues....man I want that back, and have it not suck after that. Should have hired Chris Claremont to write it

And now every Indian, or every person who is willing to claim they're Indian, who has been tried and convicted of a crime in that half of the state is going to appeal their conviction, and probably get it thrown out (if it was a state conviction, which most crimes are), all because Gorsuch and the leftist loons wanted to protect some pervy Indian creep (a Seminole, not even a Creek) who had forcibly raped and sodomized his wife's 4-year old granddaughter.

367 Great thread, WeirdDave - thanks for this!

For anyone interested in dipping into some relatively modern comics, I highly recommend Jonathan Hickman's run on Fantastic Four - it's a great story about fatherhood and the importance of family.

368 Any opinion on that title? Should have stuck with it or was I not missing much?
Posted by: thathalfrican - Clark Kent with the glasses off at July 09, 2020 11:20 PM (IYHxL)

It wasn't a bad title, just got delayed a lot wit Jim rounding up new talent. Late 90's early 2000's I think Jim did a short Shadowhawk story arc and I think Todd published it. Things were nuts when I was there. We did comic book design, but the big push was McFarlane Toys advertising and packaging.

WTF, Jughead is gay? I thought he was just to stupid to get a chick.

Never read that much, I was into Superman. For some reason my conservative, rural raised IL mother thought that was not allowed. I snuck a few until she found them and came around. WTF? Did anyone else experience this in the 60s?

Posted by: Farmer at July 09, 2020 11:31 PM (8fYj1)

373 Yeah I cannot work out where the hell he pulled that out of. One of the worst supreme court decisions in history, Scalia would have ripped him a new one for not even beginning to consider the consequences of his ruling. Its not good enough to make a judgment, you also have to consider what that judgement will lead to and become in the hands of future judges. I swear there's LSD in the water coolers at the SCOTUS.
_________________

He got it from the text of individual statutes, read in isolation, and completely ignoring the larger context. Gorsuch is big on textualism -- but apparently only when he can read the "text" in a way that allows him to reach the conclusion he wants to reach. So he can ignore the fact that the text of Title VII used the word "sex" to actually mean biological sex and not "whatever sexual identity I imagine myself to be today" or "whatever person I feel like screwing tonight" so that he can interpret it as prohibiting discrimination against LGBTQRSTUV freaks and people who "identify as" a biological sex they are not. But he can't read the text of the numerous acts of congress and other contemporaneous documents that show that half the friggin' state of Oklahoma is not a Creek Indian reservation and was never intended to be.

It's maddening, and it does not portend well for the future that he is this much of a crackpot.

376 We did comic book design, but the big push was McFarlane Toys advertising and packaging.

I think there was a lot more money in the toys and merchandising than the comics.

And yes, Neal Adams was incredible. I remember that early Sinkiewicz stuff was all Adams clone art until he developed his own crazy abstracted style.

Adams was brilliant at putting his characters into impossible poses that make every artist's jaw drop trying to figure out how the hell he could do that and get it right.

He and Steranko changed comics. I love Kirbys energy and layouts, I love a lot of those earlier artists but those guys took comics to a whole new level of artistic quality.

from looking at hands all day long. If you get it wrong, they just
look stupid. You can mess up eyes, they're simple. You can mess up

I think it's also because feet and hands look downright *weird*. They don't look weird to us because we're so used to seeing them. But they look really fucking weird. That's what makes them so easy to get wrong. They don't look how we think they look in our minds because we've normalized the weirdness, but we obviously know how they should look.

384 One of my favorite things I learned about human anatomy when learning to draw is that the head does not pop straight up out of the shoulders. It projects forward. When you see the neck drawn coming vertically up from the shoulders it looks crazy and ridiculous and like a kid drew it but you don't know why because, again, we've normalized how it looks. We (people unfamiliar with anatomy) think our own head pops straight up 90 degrees from our body.

391 There was an artist who was busted not long back who was tracing glamour and porn models for his female characters, just straight up take the picture with a lightboard and use them in the comics. So you'd get these women in outrageously sexualized and ridiculous poses -- even for comics. He got busted for it and I don't even think he's in the business any longer.

Throughout high school and into college, I just knew I was going to go into comics as a penciller, I had hoped to be the next John Byrne or George Perez...but God and life had different plans for me. I stopped reading comics back in 1990--sold my entire collection for rent money. I never really looked back much, as I was already eyerolling too often at the "gritty realism," and the beginning of the retconning trend meant stories I cared about no longer mattered.

Speaking of Mr. Byrne--if you are at all curious as to what the X-Men would've been like had he stayed on the book and Claremont left instead, then you really need to visit his Forum and enjoy X-Men: Elsewhen. It is the only comic book material I have remotely enjoyed in 30 years. Link: https://tinyurl.com/ycuvx8b4

393 I found on /r/worldbuilding (reddit... I know) a claim that the Louisiana Purchase contained a codicil that the Union was bound to protect "the free men of color" there.

Since the states of Louisiana and Arkansas broke that promise, the Louisiana Purchase reverts back to ... France.

Wonder if Gorsuch is going to go with that, next.

395 When I sat down and started thinking of the OK/Indian reservation decision, I came to the conclusion that in some ways that might not be so bad. The fed and leftists are afraid of fucking with the Indians, and being on a reservation means a lot of independence from DC.

________________

It has all kinds of implications, some of them we probably can't even guess at yet.

For starters, any Indian who has been convicted of a state crime (e.g., murder, rape, robbery, burglary, fraud, whatever) in that half of the state can now appeal to have his or her conviction thrown out, on the grounds that the state of OK lacked jurisdiction to prosecute them -- and the appeals will have to be granted.

And then there are civil matters. Like, for example, all the non-Indians who own property in that half of Oklahoma -- do they even own the property now, since Gorsuch and his lefty loon buddies have decreed it's an Indian reservation? Are thousands of title insurers going to have to pay off hundreds of billions of dollars in claims because titles to real estate in the "reservation" half of the state can't be transferred legally now?

And that's just for starters. There are many more issues that will have to be resolved, and it will be a huge damn mess that will cost the taxpayers of OK a fortune before it's all resolved, if it ever is.

Interesting semi-related note. I recently sold a decent sized comic book collection to a local store that deals in such items. The collection belonged to a family member who had been collecting since the 60s. One box of comics had unfortunately been severely water damaged over the years. Much to my dismay, it contained about 100 completely ruined early Disney comics that would have been worth at least $20 each in typical "good" condition. Much more in better condition. I still got a decent check for the collection - but that ruined box was tough to throw away.

441 There has always been free men of color in the
South. And some of them owned slaves. I'm surprised there are a lot of
people that don't know this. Slavery was called the peculiar institution
for a reason. Many laws had to be followed.

445 the key is having something that gets the lemon zest without scraping too deep into the bitter, white pith of the lemon.

A "microplaner" is well worth the $$ (less than $20) and it's also great for finely grating hard cheeses like pecorino Romano or parmesano reggiano

455 So, I am driving home from Calgary this afternoon, and I am approaching Beiseker, and I see a bunch of black and white somethings moving around on the pavement a half mile ahead. I'm thinking, "Eh, a flock of magpies feasting on gopher guts from road-killed gophers, which are plentiful there."

I get a little closer, and the whole mass sort of undulates across the lane, like a black and white shag carpet rippling in the sunlight. I lay on the brakes hard, and pull up a few yards short of a mama skunk and 4 or 5 young ones, all waddling across the road. Good thing I didn't try to blow right through, eh?

The little stinkers all made it safe across the road, and I didn't get rear-ended by the traffic behind me.

Beiseker's town mascot is a skunk. Maybe they know something.

457 Re: the new OK Rez.
I think the Supreme Court just gave themselves years, if not decades, of work.
There will be so many lawsuits, so many questions of jurisdiction, that it is inevitable that they will rise to a level to be decided by the Supreme Court, unless they substantially reverse their decision.
Who does a homeowner decide to sue with respect to his property rights?The State? The tribe? The federal government?
Can a property owner simply refuse to pay taxes now? Are property taxes even in effect now?
These questions and many others will be disputed, conflicting resolutions will occur, and all this bullshit will be appealed all the top. And the SC will have to wade through this shit, ultimately.
Good job, fuckheads.

493 It's rough to read people posting about euthanasia, especially when next to my computer is a 5x7 photo of my cat Dorkie Dork back in her full fluff and 4-legged days. She's sitting on my upstairs neighbor's deck railing, looking regal with a touch of bashfulness. Both of her front paws point straight forward (after she had her right, rear leg amputated in '16, she adjusted by widening her front legs and eventually pointing her feet out about 60 degrees). Her right foot is a dark gray but her left foot was cream-colored and she had orangey paw pads on that one.

Before you have an animal euthanized (if it's not in acute distress), do some research. If it's an animal you love, euthanasia is only the best gift you can give him/her if it's done right. If it's done wrong (or done maliciously), it will haunt you forever. Especially if you promised your companimal that when the time came, you wouldn't let them suffer.

She was off her food big time, ate tons of grass, very lethargic (a field Lab thus very active by nature) and was drinking huge amounts of water.
My vet listened to the description, then she CUT the collar off Lizzie, they shampooed her thoroughly (to remove any residual from the collar) and told me to monitor her closely, feed her normally and water her good.

Veto-proof majority of Seattle city council pledges to defund the police department by at least 50%; one part of the plan they're considering would remove Seattle's 911 dispatchers from police control

524 These major cities following through on their (out of the blue, last 6 weeks) insane jihads to defund/shrink/cripple police - WTF. Seattle. Mpls - not sure where that stands, but they were doing more than a head-fake at it.

NYC - admit I haven't looked at details of what the council actually did, but the NYPD seems to be hemorrhaging personnel, and things seem out of control.

Atlanta - ditto. And Chicago - kind of like NYC (idiotic, nasty, disastrous mayor at war with her police force), just with an existing years-long unchecked ongoing gang war producing daily casualty counts that sound like Vietnam in 1969.

Can we even imagine the business, commercial, and touristic prospects of these places as this unfolds?

Northridge mall in Milwaukee (well, a suburb) got a rep as unsafe. From what I recall some whackjob followed his wife there a killed her, and that was the final straw. Don't think it was even that slow a death, it just became the place that suburban people wouldn't go anymore, and that was all she wrote.

If everyone somehow escapes they will turn on their own.

What's the source ?

But no one is interested in the ultimate outcomes so ...
We only think of now, tommorrow, next week, next year,
When the system has already shown how the previous
50 and next decades will go unless the system is changed.

A judge, a law, a homeschooling provision ...
this will change how things have gone for decades ?

That's foolish.
There is no reason to think that will change anything,
Except blind hope. And hope never saved a soul.

The smart play is to save what you can and ...

Faith did however.

The ruling was that he had to turn them over to that GJ (i.e. the prosecutor). But their reasoning was that they would not be revealed since GJ testimony is "confidential". Anybody who believes that fairy take needs to hang up their law license because Democrats reveal GJ testimony at will when they think it will help their Party.

584 Vic, isn't the grand jury testimony issue already before the Supreme Court? I know this following statement may be hubris, but if the process really is part of the punishment, and since this whole thing must be an intellectual affront to most of the justices (let's benefit from arrogance for a change), and the only reason they have to deal with it is because of Dem party chicanery (watch someone claim that's a slur against Chicans), so they send Trump back as a subterfuge to get them to overplay their hand so the Supreme Court says no GJ transcripts in Meuller. Then Trump makes the executive branch decision to release the transcripts since they're the equivalent of some outstanding Cracked Magazine spoofs in the late 1970's -- i.e., the political equivalent of what 11 year old boys found funny without getting punished for it -- and the Dems get laughed at because it looks so amateur. From a judicial jurisprudence standpoint, it's a great case to do justice and make the line bright (where it needs to be). Who's being protected by not releasing them? No one - nothing happened; it's not like an informant will be revealed. So the proper test case is the one where the Supreme Court can't ruin someone's life depending on how they rule since there're no innocent people here on the witness side.

The way I read the article their reasoning was that he was not "exempt" from a subpoena by the GJ and since the GJ testimony is confidential his tax records would not be revealed. Trump has been audited by the IRS almost continuously for many years. This prosecutor is a Democrat looking for dirt or something embarrassing to hit Trump with. There is no reason for the GJ to get these records other than political BS.

599 From the Vermont story...

Keeping food scraps out of the trash saves landfill space and reduces greenhouse gas emissions, the food scrap ban guidance states. "Reducing food waste saves resources. Food donation has nearly tripled since the law was passed."

So they have to set up a way to collect the food GARBAGE and take it to a compost site, I'm assuming by bicycle otherwise the carbon emissions will still be there, , plus the food donations (formerly GARBAGE) has tripled

We got some fart smellers in Vermont

And the story says that it's to reduce greenhouse gases, then it says....

From there, people are instructed to compost the scraps, coordinate a curbside pick-up or drop them off at a composting site.

I'm thinking a curbside pickup is another plastic (OMG) container being picked up by another truck (carbon emissions OMG!!!)

We had mandatory trash sorting for recycling for years but not composting. You had to dispose of food garbage in special yellow bags that were sold in all the grocery stores in our county. Steel cans went in one bin, aluminum stuff went in another bin, news papers and magazine went in another bin, et al.

It was supposed to be bought up by companies who specialized in recyling. The people got really tired of it after a while. When word got out that the ONLY thing actually being recycled was the aluminum cans the people really went beserk. They were just taking all the other stuff to the dump and dumping it all in one common pile.

So in the end they got rid of that program, but they added a $50 trash disposal fee on everybody's property taxes and we found out what the real reason was. It was another soak the taxpayers with another hidden tax.

Posted by: JAS at July 10, 2020 05:48 AM (2BZBZ)

621 When I worked for the food manufacturer, we had started a program of recycling all of the cardboard we received raw materials in. When we first started we got money for the stuff. Soon, everyone was recycling and then we had to start paying them to take it away. The upper management types would occasionally say "REEEEEEE we have to find someone to pay for this bestest cardboard ever!!" and expect someone, usually me, to find that someone.
I'm sure we paid the money to a "recycler" who recycled a good portion of it into landfill anyway

that's what worries me about the Supreme's Oklahoma / Indian reservation decision is it opens the door to reparations

obviously, there's no way ceding half of Oklahoma back to the tribes can work out, practically

after much hand-wringing, it will be decided that we can't just give the land back, but that the tribes were "wronged" by the sloppy legal language that established Oklahoma as a state

we can't "give it back" but the tribes were 'wronged"

669 Wow. For those interested, it has long been questioned when exactly the FBI learned they were working with and for the Hillary Clinton campaign against Donald Trump.


Now we have an answer: July 5, 2015. On that day Steele told the FBI who was paying him for his dossier fictions. Very first meeting between Steele and FBI. The FBI was knowingly colluding with Clinton from the very first moment.


So the FBI knew immediately that the dossier it used to justify a FISA
warrant targeting the Trump campaign was a political opposition research
product designed to help Clinton defeat her Republican opponent and did
not divulge the connection.

676 My recollection is that the Oneida tribes had a similar suit against NY State that went on for years and years. They won a couple of litigation settlements and it was looking like they might have a claim to a significant part of upstate New York, to the state and a number of counties finally settled the suits. IIRC, the Oneidas won land, money and monopoly gambling rights, but gave up their land claims.

1392174 5.08%
1381620 -0.76%

1463519 1.90%
1451633 -0.81%
1508980 3.95%

So 2020 is a little higher with the 6 year average at 1.43 Million. So maybe deaths up some. They are saying whuflu 132k deaths. But as you can see here years often vary 4 to 5%.

703 Loved the samples of comic art.

I had my comics period from age 9-11 during what people call DC's "Silver Age." I'm glad I did; it gave me an appreciation of the dramatic story, and a love for the mystery and the puzzle for its own sake. The Mort Weisinger Superman "family" of comics were not about war between planets and star systems, but more about exploring the corners of the universe. Silly covers, yes, but often neat mysteries were tucked into the stories.

Example: Superman is exposed to red kryptonite. We know that it affects Kryptonians, temporarily, a different way each time. But nothing seems to be out of the ordinary with Superman. It turns out that all this chunk did was give Superman a sixth finger on each hand -- which are clearly drawn in nearly every panel. If you were observant, you'd spot it. A fair clue.

They don;t know why (and I've forgotten what the villain's plan was). At one point Jimmy rips open a feather pillow, and we see him sneezing and Lucy making fun of him.

That's the crucial clue, and Jimmy sees it: The feathers are normal size to Lucy and him. If the two had really been shrunken, the feathers would have been gigantic. The whole thing is a hoax!

Most of the Eastern tribes have closed new registrations, not sure about Western tribes though.

If you ain't related to a current tribal member, you ain't getting in. I.e. new babies and such.

746 That's the crucial clue, and Jimmy sees it: The feathers are normal size to Lucy and him. If the two had really been shrunken, the feathers would have been gigantic. The whole thing is a hoax!

Now I don't remember why anybody would build a room of gigantic furniture for this purpose. But the essential clue was something worthy of Ellery Queen.

True! Looking back as a grownup, I realize how illogical the setup is, like a Superman-universe version of Dr. Cyclops. But the essential clue is a good one -- stunningly simple and presented cleverly, so that you're laughing while the important clue is right in front of you.

Maybe congress can fix it by just declaring that the eastern half of OK is not actually a Creek Indian reservation. Gorsuch got that from the text of some old statutes, but what one (or more) statute(s) can give, others can take away.

Not a good year for the carnival guys. Pretty much all festivals,
carnivals, fairs cancelled. Hopefully they can survive. Not much fun
anywhere, no kids showing off their prized bulls, pigs, cows, horses,
nothing. The end....Probably no rodeo's anywhere. No beer tents, no
sausages and onions cooking on the grills....The end.

This will likely be the case until carnival/festival/fair planners just go ahead and open and dare authorities to do anything about it.

773 Fireman's carnivals are also big around here. Help support the local vol. fire dept's. I'm sure the people of NYC have never heard of such a thing. And the country fair is big on demolition derby's, (guys just ramming each other's cars) Draws big crowds, noisy as hell, but the last car able to run wins. They have several heats, afternoon and evening. Lots and Lots of souped up cars with big exhaust pipes. No city person would even know what that is.
