I did not do what they are saying.

13 Thanks for the ONT.

Comparing Don Quixote to the Woke seems insulting.

Also, sorry I did not get to reply to your comment about my comment on Lincoln last night WD.

My point would be that while the excesses that Lincoln made were swept away after the war, it kind of... broke the seal on a lot of them. The income tax (which I still say the permanent income tax is the root of pretty much all of our ills.) Shattering of Federalism. It kind of broke the taboo on a lot of these ideas and people started to move and get more comfortable with that direction.

I see your point, and do not see Lincoln as a villain, per se, but there are times when I see the whole of the American Experiment as a Greek tragedy, where everyone can see what is going to happen long before it does, but no one can put the brakes on.

The KarenBears

They'll all have fun little pictures on their bellies, and very serious bob haircuts.

Some examples:

Spinster Bear - Will have a ball of yarn, knitting needles and a kitty on her belly.


Frigid Bear - Will have a barren, icy wasteland on her belly.


Wear A Mask Bear - Will have some cute little cartoon viruses on her belly, and a N95 mask accessory.

That's Not Funny Bear - Will have a red circle with a line "No Laughing" symbol on her belly, and wear a permanent scowl on her face.


Open to other suggestions for characters. I think this can be BIG!

Had a bit of good news today - the insurance adjuster approved a complete tear off and replacement of the roof shingles due to wind damage from a storm last month. It is a monster job and I'm certain the guy cried as he okay the payout.

A bit of a surprise as the adjuster was a real pr*ck. I understand he works to keep payouts to a minimum but he was a real ass about it.

Confession time:

Though the whole shaved thing isn't as big as it used to be,* from the first time I knew that women had pubic hair, I didn't like it.

I still don't.

*about 25 years ago, a few buds and I were on a camping trip in a cabin in Maine and, of course, stroke mags were in the bathroom. One guy's father came up for a weekend and after using the bathroom for the first time came out holding a magazine and yelling that we had child porn around because the women in the magazine were all shaved.

Here is my lie detecting wisdom - people have different tells, and what is indicative of a lie in one person might mean they have an itchy nose in another. The best you can do is FIRST identify the lie, and they use that to learn the tells. Then you can use the tells to point out other lies.

107 How To Detect A Lie

I had a boss (briefly, fortunately) who I was pretty sure was a psychopath. She'd lie just for the entertainment value.

Her tell was that when she was lying, she'd repeat the false statement for emphasis. It was really, really obvious, but since she couldn't read people, she wasn't aware how obvious it was.

112 As for spotting a lie, you really need to talk to someone for a while to establish baseline behavior. Then when you question them you look for changes, such as shifty eyes that weren't shifty before.

Otherwise charts like that are total crap.

I would go ask the gang units who are the most vicious and depraved bangers, go spend the afternoon rounding them up, and then giving them a couple hours time of free for all on the antifa pukes. Let the bangers keep the spoils, no matter what form that spoil comes in.

As for topping off liars, it's not impossible, but still really hard.

But when Starr asked the cigar question, his while face instantly lit up with a "HOW DID HE KNOW THAT!?" and then he remembered to go back to touching his face.

(3) When the police were rolling the roommate's body out on the gurney, you can see amanda and her boyfriend sitting on a wall and passionately making out.

Years ago there was a tv show called "Rescue Me" about NY firefighters. In one episode the younger firemen and older firemen got into a big argument about porn.

I always found it sad that the man who killed her said that he didn't hate Elizabeth, it was just that he wanted to assassinate any royal and she was the easiest one to find.

311 The "O-O" meme is obscure. You wouldn't get it unless you spend time on meme sites, which I do looking for ONT content. Basically, a meme came out a while ago that showed an astronaut looking at Earth from the moon. he landmass on Earth was shaped like Ohio, and he was saying "Wait, it's all Ohio?". Behind him was another astronaut pointing a gun at his head saying "Always has been".

Now, nobody seems to know where this meme originated. My teenage son doesn't know, and he knows everything about memes. But...there it is. So...*deep breath*

The two people labeled "O" are saying "hi" (O-Hi-O) and my caption is "Always has been".

The meme has been riffed off of a lot. Just last week someone on Twitter was seemingly surprised that conservatives were not being racist but liberals were, and I responded with the meme recaptioned "Wait, it's the conservatives who are against racism?" and the other astronaut saying "Always has been"

Anyhow, if the meme requires this much explanation, it's a dud. Oh well, can't win them all.

Here's a link to the original meme:

314 Ever hear of "1st Amendment Auditors"? They walk up to various buildings and just hang around filming things to see if they get a response...some use it as a source of income to sue if they are harassed or improperly arrested.

We had some issues in Iowa with one guy, and going through his YouTube postings, he has an amazing video of the Cedar Rapids Post Office. He's on the sidewalk filming the parking area, and an employee coming to work starts yelling at him from his car. He then grabs a baseball bat and starts threatening him. This kind of stuff has spiked in the last few months, I'm guessing due to Corona and people being cooped up.

When the first Watson (sorry, don't recall his name offhand) left the series (IIRC to do stage work), he suggested his buddy, Edward, for the role and coached him on how to act exactly as he'd been playing Watson so Edward got the job because he was almost the same as the original guy! I never realized during its first run that it wasn't the same guy playing Watson!
Yes, and it is the best Sherlock Holmes portrayal. Too bad from a technical view about Brett's fatal illness [R.I.P.] that affected some of the last episodes like having Mycroft working in the field with Watson. But I found it very touching that Brett was consciously playing the dying Holmes while he was dying himself. [Again, R.I.P.]

374 When the first Watson (sorry, don't recall his name offhand) left the series (IIRC to do stage work), he suggested his buddy, Edward, for the role and coached him on how to act exactly as he'd been playing Watson so Edward got the job because he was almost the same as the original guy! I never realized during its first run that it wasn't the same guy playing Watson!
Yes, and it is the best Sherlock Holmes portrayal. Too bad from a technical view about Brett's fatal illness [R.I.P.] that affected some of the last episodes like having Mycroft working in the field with Watson. But I found it very touching that Brett was consciously playing the dying Holmes while he was dying himself. [Again, R.I.P.]

I couldn't believe it, by my 90 yr. old mother went out in the garden late (very late) this evening with Miley and picked peas. Miley said she was really going at it.

She said the heat wasn't too bad, but it did make her knees sore. But that's no problem, it's good for her to get interested in stuff again, which she is.

She also was eyeing the corn and just had to pick and ear to see what it looked like. It was still a bit immature, but it's filling out nicely. It will be ready in about a week to 10 days.

The Nazis knew about the existence of the seed bank, and wanted it but didn't know where it was.

516 I gotta say, I'm pretty bummed about the trouble we're having selling our house.

I just don't understand it. I'm in several different professional groups for work, and all of the realtors/mortgage bankers/title guys have been saying for months that they can't keep houses on the market. Multiple offers w/in days of listing. Rates at 2.99%. Area "inventory" at less than 30 days.

And here I sit with one offer at 50K less than I listed at (which was exactly what the house 2 doors down sold for, 2 weeks before I listed, after 3 days on the market). I could take the offer, but I'd have to wipe out my savings to make up for the lost equity in order to buy the new house. I'm not willing to do that.

Apparently the hot market is less than 300K and over 500. I've got friends trying to buy in the 600-700K range and they can't get a house for love or money. They've made multiple offers on houses and been outbid each time. Last week a realtor in my networking group had 27 offers on a house listed at 250K in 3 days.

And here I sit, with a really nice house (it's not just me saying that with rose glasses, we never planned to move and have done a lot of work over the past 8 years. All new appliances. Redone the kitchen and all the baths. New water heater and electric panel. Mature fruit trees and a peaceful wooded half acre out back. More), right in the middle, and nobody is interested. I feel like a guy with hundred dollar bills in each hand who can't buy a blowjob at a whorehouse.

Sorry, that's crude, I know, but damnit I'm frustrated and depressed.

Can you work with your realtor, and take it off the market for a week or two, and then relist it at a higher price? Sometimes stuff doesn't sell because it's too cheap, and would-be buyers assume there is a hidden flaw.

535 My favorite guvamint navigational/aviation advisories are about San Clemente Island, off SoCal. Government reservation and military installation since the 1920s, I think. Initially a naval gunnery range.

The website lists restrictions from the ocean floor to thousands of feet in the air - probably the only area that does that. Lots and lots of wild stuff going on out there.

In the summer, generally, Pyramid Cove - basically the southern tip of the island - is open to recreational/general maritime use. Gotta be my favorite SoCal boat destination. Quiet, beautiful, abundant fish and marine life - and the occasional low-flying F-18, SEALs on boats landing on the southern shore, and other unusual attractions.

Used to fly with a friend during lunch in high school (he had the license), that was amusing.

But I never did take the time to even get my license, came close a few times.

So my logbook, apart from my flying with the friend in high school, has only 75 minutes in an F-16B.

567 Cicero, it was the flight of a lifetime for a civilian. And with the side-stick/fly-by-wire combo, it was very easy to fly for a non-pilot (obviously just cruising, at altitude) - to demonstrate this he had me take over and put us on a certain heading at a lower altitude, was easy.

I couldn't resist, so I engaged the guarded "Nuclear Enable" switch (the cool one with the yellow and black striped guard). He laughed and said "what are you doing back there?" and I explained that most people never get to flip a "Nuclear Enable" switch.

I was, um, quite a bit younger at the time, and in very good shape - but I was sore in strange ways (back, neck) for a few days after. We only got up to 6G on turns, but that was memorable still.

As to giving your left nut, one of the many wonderful side effects of the collapse of the east bloc and the USSR was the sudden availability of military experiences such as this for $$$. Dunno if it's still true, but a while back you could pay to go up in tactical aircraft - I think in Russia, don't remember exactly.

A practice I think the US military should adopt, to build civil-military relations and support, and for deficit reduction .....

573 Actually, for cabernet, a serious suggestion.

Major chains (Vons, Ralphs) carry St Francis cabernet sauvingnon, which maintains a very high quality, vintage after vintage. Vons will occasionally have it at a pretty nice discount if you buy a six-pack. It's kind of like commodities or certain kinds of stock trading - "I'm a buyer at $17/bottle and below".

It's very good for the price, when discounted, and fair-value good for the normal price. I usually check when I'm in one of the stores, just to see. A simple grilled steak with salt and pepper, some grilled veggies, and St Francis cab is one of my favorite dinners.

I don't think that matters. Buyers see the listing on the Web, and they see the asking price, and if the price is close to the range they expected to pay, they may consider it. Now their agent may say, "This house was listed a month ago at 80,000 less, and the buyer will say, well, you never showed it to use then, did you?"

They all run back to a central point next to the water heater location. They'll install a distribution manifold and the water supply will connect to that.

It was a mooney, which is a weird name, but seemed to be a cool plane. A friend of a friend was a flight instructor and brought me up. Five minutes in he asks if I wanted to fly it. I said are you fucking nuts?? He says no its easy. So I did it. It was almost like driving a car, so I cruised around for 15 minutes or so, then he took over and landed it. It was a shitload of fun.

591 Actually, Cicero, there is a sad trombone part of the story.

The squadron I flew with had never flown a civilian. Didn't know all the rules. Initial briefing was that we'd start by going over to the gunnery range (Avon Park, central FL) AND SHOOT THE GUN, do some target strafing. And then go out over the Gulf for the supersonic/intercept/etc portions of the program.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alas, my heart sunk like a stone - toward the end the briefing, the squadron commander came in, welcomed me, glanced at the whiteboard, and said "uh, you can't do this, all ships are empty and disarmed for civilian flights".

So I was *this* close, really, to not just flying in the F-16 but firing the 20mm gun. Coulda been a contendah.

610 Can't remember, might have been that one dubbed the "doctor killer" back in the 60s/70s - they were popular with flying doctors in SoCal back then, and more than a few were wrecked in SoCal and Baja.

Cicero might be able to correct me on that.

The doctor killer was the V-tailed Beech Bonanza.

I have a Pex system in the house here, circa 2008. As advertised, it's perfect.

But. DO. Make sure.

That they install a larger manifold than is needed, so you can at later times, install more runs to newly imagined fixtures than now exist at the time of your blueprinting.

Sooner or later, you'll need 'em.

I already do.

My "redneck" solution is to splice into an existing run, label everything copiously, and thus supply the outdoor kitchen which had heretofore never existed.

But you'll want those vacant spaces in your manifold, for exactly such reasons.

Demand that your plumber makes it so.

615 F-16s have, well, almost no wings. Little stubby things.

And as the plane was a product of the "Lightweight Fighter Program", which sought to optimize air-to-air capabilities, among other things, it has amazing visibility. You sit up very high, the canopy comes down very far - on take-off, it was fairly unnerving, it was like sitting *on top* of something as it hurtles down the run-way.

You gotta carefully cross-check the exact model number of that particular Mooney against the listings.

Chinks bought Mooney about 15ish years ago. The one you flew might've been an 30 year old airplane, hence, no problem.

Thing here is, Mooneys are STILL great airplanes. Still made in Kerrville, TX. All U.S. components.

Just that the Chinks bought the majority shares to keep 'em aloft, there.

That said, I'd still research the when/change dates and model numbers, and call it a hard pass at that moment in time.

Mooneys haven't had wooden spars in their wings since the early '60s "Executive" series.

By time the Mooney 201 appeared on the scene in the late '70s, it was all aluminum everything, everywhere. And has been, ever since.

I can sweat a joint with solder at a Master Plumber skill level.

And the copper is still inferior to a 100% PEX supply side plumbing installation. The "manifold" system is sublime in it's genius, when properly executed.

Re copper. When my father built the house back in 1960, he had the plumber's use thick-wall copper pipe. Type K, not L. The thickest.

An uncle built his house about the same time, and used type M copper. In the '90s, pin hole leaks had developed. I fixed a couple of those for my aunt myself. And there were more later my cousin fixed.

Every word is correct, but misses the point in the posting.

All of those copper systems were series-run, and lacked the ability to turn off the cold water to the kitchen sink or hot water to the Master shower. etc.

The PEX manifold allows for such control.

And is freeze resistant.

Doesn't matter the heavy gauge of the copper, it lacks the flexibility of the PEX system, be it manifold or tubing.

Their war would not have turned on their skill with a 9mm handgun. At least, not while still airborne.

After ejection, and Escape and Evasion, well, that's a different story. A story where their skill with that 9mm might've made all of the difference.

Lack being, not training for the ENTIRE flight envelope, including the Oh Shit I'm On The Ground aspect of the evolution.

Chuck Yeager was a killer, be it pilot or hunter. He could shoot, regardless of the platform.

I'm pretty damn good across the spectrum. Know what though?

I'm not gonna piss Weasel off on a bet. I think I can run the course on him with a handgun. I might be neck and neck with him at 100 yards with a rifle.

Tastes vary (see Brussel sprouts and taste genes, for instance) but there is nothing in okra that even vaguely reminds me of celery.

The slime is what makes it good. That slime is what makes gumbo (and many other soups) what they are.

Oh yes. But my favorite is on the cob. Publius taught me his way to make creamed corn. There are many, it seems - he does a single shallow cut, only the rounded tops, then presses the goody out.

Note to any lurkers and uninitiated. "Creamed corn", when cut off fresh out of the garden/field, is nothing like the crap sold in the grocery stores. The canned stuff is awful and the frozen stuff is slightly less awful.

Fresh "cut off corn" as we call it is delicious and nothing like the store bought shit.

I am look forward to that indeed. I showed Miley the technique of cutting it off. There are several ways. Our way was to cut off just the tops of the kernels, then scrape the "milk" out. Some make several cutting passes.

Me, I like it cut off the best of all, but Miley still likes it best on the cob. I love it that way too, but the cut off is orgasmic to me.

One more thing -- "my" (Mama's and her mother's) recipe is to cut off as described above, then simmer for about 20 minutes in a big shallow pan. Add bacon grease and salt and pepper to taste.

That's heaven. Some varieties will thicken (has to do with starch content, I think) and take adding water, less it get too thick and stick to the pan as it simmers.

750 When I made fried corn, with sweet red peppers and jalapenos, I cut it off the cob.

My corn-y story:

This one time my Mom and me were visiting her uncle and aunt, my great uncle, but I just called him Uncle. He was a former farmer, Holstein milk cow herd and acres of silver queen corn. This was after he was retired and moved off the farm. In his backyard he had a garden like nobody's business. A couple of rows of that wonderful silver queen corn. Saturday night's dinner was served with corn on the cob fresh of the stalk and tossed into already boiling water. It was delicious. I make the comment: This corn is so good, I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Now Norris, being practical but not really exuberant, decided he would get me. Sunday at breakfast, there were pancakes and country sausage patties on the table. But on my plate, he put an ear of corn. I merely looked at it, rubbed it with butter, sprinkled some salt and pepper on it, and began eating with reli-, with gleeful abandon. Realizing he didn't 'get me', all he could say was, "At least you're a man of your word."

It's true, though. In-season, I can eat silver queen corn for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Well, I'm still up -- corn talk, I can't resist. Me, I like it a bit on the soupy/thinner side.

I have eaten so much of it I thought I was going to bust wide open. Like crack to me. Take that, some sliced tomatoes, maybe some squash and something else, peas, beans, whatever, and I'm in heaven. Now, some good crisp bacon will go well with the corn and tomatoes.

Alan Cranston spoke at Mrs. Franpsycho's and all she remembers is him going off on the impending nuclear war with the USSR

774 On the day of John Lewis' demise, let us remember Eugene "Bull" Connor, who gave the order to use dogs, water hoses, and truncheons at the Edmund Pettis Bridge.

Eugene "Bull" Connor, member of the Democratic National Committee.

775 Anyone say voluptuous yet?

Also vituperous and vitriolic, on occasion.

776 What's that saying about movements turning into rackets? That's 'civil rights' icon John Lewis. His icon status was buried before he was.

791 So far Aldi's is the only grocery store around here that isn't mandating masks.

I'm guessing they will fall, too.

795 In Vietnam I carried the M1911, a Kabar and an M-79. When I did doorgunner duty, I sat behind a M-60 and had an M-1 cut down to pistol size I carried in a holster I had made for it, as well as my M1911 and Kabar. All saw use. BTW, I hated the M-16.

796 If you're going to create a picture showing Teddy Roosevelt, and quoting him, why wouldn't you spell check your work before finalizing it? "Sqaure Deal" Speech? FFS!
