The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“Portland, Oregon, is not out of control. To be sure, there are some people who have strong feelings and there are some who have done things that are inappropriate and unlawful, but that is the challenge of our local officials and our state officials to manage it, not having somebody unwelcome, uninvited, and unprepared, coming in to take this difficult situation and make it worse.” Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR)

Quote II

"One possibility is that sites on this blacklist are being penalized, and the glitch was that the penalty was accidentally set so high that these sites were effectively removed from Google search. I've found that a lot of people tend to conflate algorithms with AI since they're both automated, but AI isn't as objective and mechanical as algorithms are." Former Google engineer Tom Wacker


Quote III

Having been married for 45 years with two daughters, I’m very cognizant of my language.

The offensive name-calling words attributed to me by the press were never spoken to my colleagues and if they were construed that way, I apologize for their misunderstanding. Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL)

We should all know by now that our judicial system is a farce. Still not convinced? Boston’s WPRI reported Wednesday that “a federal judge is seeking alternative proposals to imprisonment for a Warwick man convicted in a terror plot to behead a conservative blogger.”

The question that follows is inevitable: if Nicholas Rovinski, 29, a convert to Islam who plotted to murder Pamela Geller for the crime of drawing Muhammad, had plotted instead to kill some prominent Leftist such as Linda Sarsour, would there be even the remotest possibility that he could get released early? In today’s overheated, hyper-woke environment, the answer is unfortunately quite clear.

Not only is our judicial system a farce, it's also a criminal enterprise. What else would you call the full force of a government which fabricates its own evidence?

Gardner, a prosecutor backed by George Soros during her election, filed a charge of felony unlawful use of a weapon as well as a misdemeanor charge of fourth degree assault against both McCloskeys.

The Missouri Attorney General said he would be looking into dismissing the case because in his opinion it had no basis and was political in its filing. The Missouri governor said if they were convicted he would likely pardon them.

But a story breaking today shows another big problem in the case and it’s pretty troubling.

When the gun that Patricia McCloskey had was turned over to the authorities, it was inoperable and inoperable when it arrived at the St. Louis Police crime lab.

An ONT with filler material, who would have thought? He who smelt it dealt it.

As that anti-masker having a tantrum in a Panera pointed out, you can smell a fart even though it passes through the fabric of your pants. Her point seems to be that fabric cannot block air, and thus masks cannot block things that are carried in air. She’s wrong, but let’s examine why.

A cloth mask’s job is to block droplets containing the coronavirus. It works best to block the large droplets that come from your own mouth and nose (so you won’t risk infecting others), but it may also provide some protection against droplets produced by other people.

We keep hearing, "It's the humidity, not the heat." Sony has introduced a product to help beat back the humidity issue. There is now a wearable air conditioner.

I don’t think my opinion on Japanese summers is particularly unusual, which is probably why Sony decided to go ahead with the Reon Pocket through its First Flight internal-startup-incubator-slash-crowdfunding-platform. First Flight has previously led to products like the FES E Ink watch, the Huis smart home universal remote, and the Wena Wrist modular smartwatch. Now we have the Reon Pocket, which can only be described as a wearable air conditioner, and I’ve been testing it out.

The Reon Pocket is a fairly slim palm-sized white plastic device that charges over USB-C and connects to your iOS or Android phone with Bluetooth. It definitely looks like a Sony gadget. There’s a silicone pad on the back that you can press against your skin, and the Reon Pocket uses the Peltier effect to cool or warm itself up by absorbing and releasing heat. You can use it handheld, but the most widely promoted use cases involves buying Sony’s special V-neck undershirts with a pocket on the inner back to keep the device resting between your shoulder blades.

If you are fucking up more than 50%, It's not a flaw. It borders on criminal malfeasance.

90 people in the state of Connecticut were found to actually have been negative for coronavirus after receiving positive tests, MSN reported on Tuesday.

The state's Department of Public Health said that its state laboratory found a "flaw" in one of its testing systems and that 90 of 144 people who were tested for the virus between June 15 and June 17 received false positive tests. 161 specimens were collected and a total of 91 of those showed false positives.

Many of those who received the false tests were nursing home residents.

The state said that it reported the flaw to the test manufacturer and the FDA. It has taken "immediate steps" to make sure patients have been notified - hopefully more than just forwarding them a copy of this article.

Let me process this. Talking to someone and being intimate with a stranger I risk contracting Covid-19. Having oral sex at a "glory hole" I'm safe and in the clear? Government!!!

B.C. health officials are recommending an age-old, occasionally cutting-edge tactic for sex during the coronavirus pandemic: “glory holes.”

The B.C. Centre for Disease Control added new recommendations for socially distant sex to its COVID-19 website this week. One of those tips was to try using a “glory hole” — a hole cut into a wall that’s only large enough for a penis to slip through.

Glory holes are typically used for anonymous oral or penetrative sex, according to Urban Dictionary, but they’re also an excellent way to limit physical contact during intercourse, the B.C. CDC says.

“Use barriers, like walls (e.g., glory holes), that allow for sexual contact but prevent close face-to-face contact,” the health organization writes on its website.

The Bulwark and the Lincoln Project staffs are quite relieved.

OK Texas Morons, is this a good thing or is Col. Allen West just a carpet bagger?

“Truly Humbled” Allen West Releases Statement After Winning Texas GOP Chair

Retired Lt. Colonel and former Florida Congressman Allen West unseated James Dickey as Texas Republican Party Chairman in the early hours of Monday morning.

West released the following statement on twitter:

I just want to say how truly humbled I am by this honor, and that I will work hard for Texas and Texans. I would like to thank my amazing and dedicated team, as well as an incredible number of supporters. Thank you all! Now the work begins…

Voluntarily having your DNA checked? Oh hell, what could go wrong?

An anonymous reader quotes a report from BuzzFeed News:
On July 19, genealogy enthusiasts who use the website GEDmatch to upload their DNA information and find relatives to fill in their family trees got an unpleasant surprise. Suddenly, more than a million DNA profiles that had been hidden from cops using the site to find partial matches to crime scene DNA were available for police to search. The news has undermined efforts by Verogen, the forensic genetics company that purchased GEDmatch last December, to convince users that it would protect their privacy while pursuing a business based on using genetic genealogy to help solve violent crimes.

A second alarm came on July 21, when MyHeritage, a genealogy website based in Israel, announced that some of its users had been subjected to a phishing attack to obtain their log-in details for the site -- apparently targeting email addresses obtained in the attack on GEDmatch just two days before. In a statement emailed to BuzzFeed News and posted on Facebook, Verogen explained that the sudden unmasking of GEDmatch profiles that were supposed to be hidden from law enforcement was "orchestrated through a sophisticated attack on one of our servers via an existing user account." "As a result of this breach, all user permissions were reset, making all profiles visible to all users. This was the case for approximately 3 hours," the statement said. "During this time, users who did not opt in for law enforcement matching were available for law enforcement matching and, conversely, all law enforcement profiles were made visible to GEDmatch users." It's unclear whether any unauthorized profiles were searched by law enforcement.

The ONT Musical Interlude

Do you like the Blues? Planning on a trip to the Windy City? You will have to check out the Muddy Waters Museum.

Muddy Waters‘ former house in Chicago will be renovated into a museum and community center, the Hyde Park Herald reported on Tuesday.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has given a $50,000 grant to transform the six-time Grammy-winning blues musician’s brick house — situated on 4339 S. Lake Park Ave. in the North Kenwood neighborhood of the city — into the Muddy Waters MOJO Museum. The grant arrives through the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund.

Led by Waters’ great-granddaughter, Chandra Cooper, the MOJO renovation project will include a neighborhood museum attached to a community center. In addition to exhibits with a focus on Waters and the blues, the space will include a small venue, a recording studio, and a community garden.

Do not, I repeat, "Do not get on the bad side of this Genius Award Winner.

JULY 21--A Michigan woman who wanted her ex-husband murdered tried to hire a killer via the farcical web site rentahitman.com, police allege.

According to investigators, Wendy Wein, 51, this month filled out a “service request form” on the site, which describes itself as “your point & click” solution and boasts of “17,985 U.S. Based Field Operatives.” Site visitors are assured that Rent-A-Hitman is compliant with provisions of the 1964 Hitman Information Privacy & Protection Act (HIPPA).

A recent update on Rent-A-Hitman noted that, “We are still open during the COVID-19 pandemic,” though “our Wuhan offices will be working on a reduced schedule.”

The form Wein submitted to the web site identified her former spouse as the intended victim, prompting Rent-A-Hitman’s operator to contact the Michigan State Police since it appeared Wein was serious about soliciting a murder.

Once without the sense of touch. Now restored. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Imagine tying your shoes or taking a sip of coffee or cracking an egg but without any feeling in your hand. That's life for users of even the most advanced prosthetic arms.

Although it's possible to simulate touch by stimulating the remaining nerves in the stump after an amputation, such a surgery is highly complex and individualized. But according to a new study from the University of Pittsburgh's Rehab Neural Engineering Labs, spinal cord stimulators commonly used to relieve chronic pain could provide a straightforward and universal method for adding sensory feedback to a prosthetic arm.

For this study, published today in eLife, four amputees received spinal stimulators, which, when turned on, create the illusion of sensations in the missing arm.

Eric was a local head of the Federalist society when it still meant something. He was a lawyer who believed in justice.

121 The whole Soros-DA-Thing is so weird to me. I get that electing DA's who can exercise discretion so that your people are protected and your foes get slammed is the idea. But right now they seem to be tossing all of the benefits they could have by ceasing to keep it a low-key thumb on the scales and instead just going full lefty with it. I would think that if you are going to put together a plan, spend money, elect people to office, you would want these people to be there for a while and slowly push things in the direction you want, a campaign of gradualness where no one can point to one incident that would reveal your insidious plot.


But no - you get people like this St. Louis county attorney who decides (if reports are accurate) to taint the chain of custody of evidence, to adulturate the evidence in a high profile case where the national media, the state AG, and the state governor are watching. All the while she is screaming "YOLO!" and doing her damndest to either be indicted or voted out of office. It makes no sense at all and is risking the entire investment for a cause celebre when a series of quiet incremental cases would have advanced the cause securely and safely.

159 West has done other things in Texas, too. Something called the Guardian Fund for holding the conservative line in Texas, and worked for the Texas Public Policy Fund until he decided to run for local GOP leadership.

He generally talks right. Other than his military service and his successful run for office in Florida, I have not seen much evidence of the leadership that's going to be required to deal with the Texas GOP. That said, those are two important signifiers.

On the other hand, I gave money to the Guardian Fund last year. They have since given me seven dollars of it back in one and two dollar bills, a fundraising tactic that I usually associate with grifters.

I hope he is the real deal.

180 Very long story made short. Someone in the family did a ancestry thing.. I get a text from a cousin saying my husband could be some guys dad.

I got to see that one from the other side of the fence. I got contacted on Ancestry by someone who, on paper, was my third cousin. But he had good reason to believe he might not be, and after comparing my DNA test and another known test, was not a match.

We then spent no small amount of time figuring out who the real father was, with decent success. But it did place a lot of strain on his family as well as the actual father's...

228 #3 son and a niece both submitted DNA for testing. Allowing for the fact that neice 's mother married into the family and #3 son's father married into the family, the results were pretty much as I expected --
mostly eastern European peasant. The only thing that surprised me was that neither turned up any trace of Mongolian since our area of eastern Europe was a playground for the Golden Horde and it's successors for a couple of centuries.

I kind of wish the kids hadn't gotten their DNA tested. I'm not afraid of police finding someone related to us is a criminal; I'm just concerned that the government and our Tech Overlords already have entirely too much of our personal information.

And if some system is unpredictable (i.e. fails black box testing), then it's no more than a dressed-up random number generator. We live in the Age of Irrationality AND Idiocy. The Left has finally destroyed science and they're coming for math. 2+2=5 comrade ...

249 Supertramp is pretty much an unknown band today and I was glad to have seen them at Radio City in the mid-80's (with The Motels as the opening act). 'Breakfast in America' was a fine album. I also loved the cover art for 'Crime Of The Century' which contained the song 'Bloody Well Right', another goodie.

Some songs from 'Breakfast In America' may have been a bit overplayed (read: The band made gobs of money) and that may have led to their becoming invisible today. Bands want airplay but it's one of those 'be careful what you wish for, you just might get it' problems.

All the while she is screaming "YOLO!" and doing her damndest to either be indicted or voted out of office. It makes no sense at all and is risking the entire investment for a cause celebre when a series of quiet incremental cases would have advanced the cause securely and safely.

It should be made of a tube sock with a double knot tied in it and it needs to be shoved down his throat to prevent the spread of the virus.

And just to be certain, a couple of large gentlemen should be holding his head under water in a toilet in 8 second bursts while his mask is in place shouting "Do you f*clking understand now, you dandy bow-tie simp mutherf*cker?"

Their version of Seven Bridges Road is absolutely fantastic. I think Foxes and Fossils, the fabulous cover band from Georgia has done a cover of it but I've not seen it posted.

Foxes and Fossils' first ever song sung in front of a live audience was this rendition of Suite: Judy Blue Eyes by CSN and is recognized by many as just about the best cover you will ever hear:

Miley didn't understand "done done", as in "Oh, you done done it" meaning, oh, you've already finished that task.

I say various idioms and expression along and have to explain them. She'd never heard "push water" for gasoline before, and thought that was funny. There's many other but I can't think of them.

Dollars to donuts, they're caries and the dentist will need to fill them. I had a couple of those done day before yesterday and they're usually the easiest type to fix.

I almost like it. It's like being a career coach when none of them actually work for me. I always tell the blunt ugly truth, own my fuck ups, and set the example for how to behave in public. I used to run a group of 8 nerds for future IRADs, but now I'm a substitute chief engineer, deputy program lead and don't have a single person on an org chart that reports to me. Whenever I get a new project, I get multiple AWOLs, and adjacent mutiny victims looking for safe harbor.

I've been called on the carpet for poaching talent from other programs and tasks, my response is always, so why do people that work for you want to leave?

Problem engineers gravitate to me since I know how to communicate with them and get their potential realized. In almost all cases the person and their niche skill is worth the extra maintenance.

People are like high performance sports cars. They need regular maintenance, motivation, and tune ups.

The only thing I cannot forgive is plagerization. That's a zero tolerance issue with me.

I am building a ramp to drive into my big shop building. The old ramp, made of wooden planks, finally rotted out, and I tore it out yesterday. The new ramp will have a steel frame, with a wooden plank deck. The load-bearing members of the ramp are a pair of trailer ramps, nine feet long, welded up from 3-inch channel iron with angle iron cross-ties. The top ends are hung off a piece of 4X4 inch steel angle drped over the edge of the concrete floor. Bottom ends rest in a length of 3X4 inch steel angle laying in an excavated trench. Basically, gravity will keep the whole damn thing from moving. I am going to deck it with 2X6 pressure-treated planks, spaced a half-inch apart to facilitate drainage of rainfall. It will look like a gently sloping dock when it's done. Which should be tomorrow.

My dentist file for $180 on a complex multisurface filing in a molar that's in bad shape. A gumline filling on a canine was $100, for comparison.

In any case, relax, go with the flow...

402 AI isn't as objective and mechanical as algorithms are." Former Google engineer Tom Wacker
--------------

*throws BS flag*

First of all, AI does not spring from the heavens fully formed. AI is (in essence) 'algorithms' which have been formulated to a particular end. There are many varieties, many hybrids, many designs that lend themselves to sundry applications.

I forget who said it, but, 'The one thing that the brain and AI software have in common is that if you cut them open, and look inside, what you find is a lot of goo.'

That is true.

While there are, as I said, different sorts of AI suitable for different uses, however 'smart', whatever 'learning' capacity the software has, the programmers fingerprints are always there, if only reflected in the direction which the algorithms take.

The guy is offering up what he hopes will be a rationalization that the average person will buy.

'Tom Wacker' indeed.

403 I am building a ramp to drive into my big shop building. The old ramp, made of wooden planks, finally rotted out, and I tore it out yesterday. The new ramp will have a steel frame, with a wooden plank deck. The load-bearing members of the ramp are a pair of trailer ramps, nine feet long, welded up from 3-inch channel iron with angle iron cross-ties. The top ends are hung off a piece of 4X4 inch steel angle drped over the edge of the concrete floor. Bottom ends rest in a length of 3X4 inch steel angle laying in an excavated trench. Basically, gravity will keep the whole damn thing from moving. I am going to deck it with 2X6 pressure-treated planks, spaced a half-inch apart to facilitate drainage of rainfall. It will look like a gently sloping dock when it's done. Which should be tomorrow.

Fair question. One, the only earthmoving machine I have, aside from the goon spoon, is a loader on my tractor. And the earth here is very clay-laden glacial till, and turns to mush when it's wet.

Well, I have 'et. I hate to brag, but that first ear of corn was delicious. Miley moaned when she tasted it.

In about 2 - 3 days, I'll be able to pull a dozen or two, and that's going to make some delicious "cut off" corn. It will be orgasmically delicious.

There is nothing like food fresh out of the garden. That ear was just a few hours off the stalk.

I also pulled an ear of the Silver Queen, but it's behind the yellow and was too young to have much flavor. It will be at least 7 days before it's close to ready.

I've got a second planting of both the yellow and Silver Queen going now -- it's about shin high, and I just put the nitrogen to it this afternoon. So we'll have another batch by the end of August - early Sept.

Haven't had a problem with coons at all. Our main problem was deer and an electric fence (knock on wood) solved that.

A coon could easily crawl under that, but I haven't seen any. And surprisingly, I haven't had to spray much, either. I think I've sprayed only three times total -- not too many insects yet. I'll probably spray again this week.

Now, in years past, the coons have been a problem. They'd climb the stalks and eat ears. But not this year.

Start out with the "thousand yard" model of the Solar System. Set a beach ball down on the ground, and let that be the Sun. Now, pace out 26 yards, and put down a peppercorn. That's the Earth. 2" from that, put a little pinhead, and that would be the Moon.

You can pace out all the planets, but I won't go through it all. Pluto's average orbit distance would be a 1000 yards from the beach ball/Sun.

Now, let the Milky Way Galaxy be the diameter of the continental US. Imagine the big ol' spiral centered over the CONUS (the top and bottom would extend into Canada and Mexico, of course).

That solar system above would be the size of a quarter, and about somewhere in eastern Tennessee distance from the center.

446 Unfortunately under some laws of some states and thus is a legitimate theory of evidence law in gun cases, even if a gun is unable to fire it can still be considered a deadly weapon.

Don't ask me to explain the ins and outs of that but it's something like the fact that whether it is working or not is not immediately obvious to anyone being targetted.

This is why someone using a fake gun can legitimately be shot by the police if they threaten them with it.

There's even a case I read about where a guy got convicted even tho he used his finger in his pocket as the shape of a gun when holding someone up.

462 And the thing about the virus testing?

These tests are prone to error because they measure bits and pieces of virus or the t-cell thingies that kill the virus.

That means if you had it at one time you may show up as having it now.

One reason for the theories that it can return quickly may be in error also.

It's how they're testing.

Best test for you having the virus is in your poop.

That's where LIVE virus cells can be found.

Italy found this out and used it to determine the areas where the most people were being infected or had been infected.

Some are saying that that's because the infection does not travel (mostly) by air but by contact.

Which could explain why a lot of healthcare workers have come down with the virus even tho they have practiced meticulous mask protocols.

Posted by: jakee308 at July 23, 2020 12:33 AM (LH/PE)

463 logprof - no, not exactly.

Remember, with anti-body tests (basically seeing if an individual was exposed to a virus, based on presence of associated anti-bodies), higher #s are *better*.

Such samples are used to calculate/estimate total infections/exposures in a population. So, the higher the positives, the closer to "herd immunity threshhold" (HIT), or a level of exposure that makes further spread slow, difficult, or impossible.

One of the more interesting and important questions for months now has been the HIT for C19. Nobel laureate biologist, focused on Diamond Princess and Stockholm, estimates low (for a viral respiratory bug) of 20%, or less (by contrast, measles, among the most infectious bugs of all is above 90%).

So - large NJ sample could (likely will) confirm all other seroprevalence surveys to date, that exposure has already been extensive.

470 Thanks Nightwatch. Think I came across a reference to the lawsuit on the twatters - suit by a foundation. And pretty obviously, "remote learning" - ignoring the utter lack of a public health rationale for it, *including* teachers and staff, who are really courting a massive downgrade in public esteem, and deserve one, for the idiotic repugnant antics and statements of many unions and reps - is an enormously unfair thing. Has dramatically different impact on different kinds of households.

Of course as you know, CA is, literally, run by the teacher's union. I wonder whether even RI has such domination of state guvamint by one interest group.

So presumably the idiot governor has no choice but to do what he's told by them.

The simplest explanation is probably that he wasn't as smart as he thought he was, but I do wonder if the opening the door mid-flight wasn't well-planned misdirection.

About the vastness of space. In that thousand yard model, the earth -- Moon distance is about 2". So that's how far we've managed to travel with men. 2". The journey to even the nearest star is 4000 miles.

The geodesic distance between NYC and London is a little under 3500 miles.

Going to the nearest star vs going to the Moon is 2" vs that.

477 And no offense but I wouldn't go to Chicago for love or money.

Well maybe money depending on how much and where I had to go.
The further south of the loop, the higher the price.

Look I've been in Chicago a lot back in the day. Even lived in and near it for quite a while.

I would not go out at night in certain areas especially not these days.

Now I did do some hiking on the South Side once as the El Trains end at 140th street? somewhere down there in the heart of the Ghetto.

But that was in the early 70s. I'm a big guy and I didn't stop to fraternize. Oh and it was in broad daylight alongside the El train tracks. (in case you don't know the El on the South Side travels down the middle of the expressway so when you get off the train you're right next to it and you just had to walk a few blocks to an on ramp and start hitching.

Didn't have to worry about cops cause they're were busy elsewhere. IYKWIM

An interesting thing is at some point in the future, the Hubble Flow will have redshifted the galaxies (well, groups of galaxies) far enough that nothing would be visible.

So, if we'd happened to come along say, 10 billion years in the future, we wouldn't see all the other galaxies, and would have no sense of how big the Universe was. We'd just have our galaxy and nothing much to see beyond it. You'd have nothing to give you a sense of the scale.

486 The first acts of the Civil War 2.0 are already in motion.

The rebelling cities are refusing Federal Officers from entering their juridictions and their militant arm has attacked Federal buildings.

The attack on Fort Sumter was considered the opening round of the first Civil War . Why not this one these acts.

This is what happens when the Federal Gov't ignored the Amnesty/Sanctuary Cities nonsense. Gave them inspiration and made the Fed look weak. And so here we are.

For me, it should be okay cause this Civil War will be fought on an entirely different type of battlefield and in a much different location. I'm in the rurual, strong law and order type area and those are able to control their areas to prevent most any attacks.

In particular, I live within 10 miles of a military training reservation. We can hear the gunfire at the end of every month.

487 Haven't really followed details today/last few days - fed cops in Portlandia are only protecting federal property/personnel, I assume?

Likely the case that at least some of this was invited by the ridiculously limp response to the blockading of the ICE offices two years ago.

Probably, the idiocy of the perps and the local officials would have brought us here anyway - but the pathetic response to the ICE thing was inexcusable. Even if it served as a fairly apt metaphor for the administration's response to state and city lawless rebellion on immigration matters.

491 jake, saw we were making the same point, back to back.

No question the "sanctuary" lawlessness has eroded rule of law and federal authority for years. Very surprised and very disappointed that not only was it not a priority to deal with it, decisively, in the first few months of this administration - but that really nothing but limp and lame responses have been tried.

But as usual, things are even worse than they seem. The Congress, of course the Dems but also 95% of the GOP, *do not care* or are happy to tacitly support this disastrous, outrageous behavior. And the WH has not not lifted a pinkie to even try and politicize it - maybe we'll finally see something, with some life at DHS and Meadows as CoS, but I'm not holding my breath.

538 Shingles shot - HIGHLY recommended (assuming no special considerations, ask your doc).

Pneumonia - I guess, depending on health condition.

I also don't get the flu shot. Did for a few years. It's a hit/miss proposition (and BTW, typically includes some coronavirus-targeted ingredients in the recipe). And given the uncertainties/unknowns, its efficacy is not clear (year to year variations in efficacy are claimed to be ID'd but I'm not so sure about that).

Broad vaccination for C19, even if a vaccine is found (dubious), is absurd, given its morbidity/mortality pattern.

Reason they offer, yet reason all amiss. Their hearts tell them,
So brief our time here, so full of discomfort, and death brings no remedy! Never a man yet made good his title to have come back from the grave! Whence came we, none can tell; and it will be all one hereafter whether we lived or no. What is our breath, but a passing vapour; what is our reason, but a spark that sets the brain whirling?

Quench that spark, and our body is turned to ashes; like a spent sigh, our breath is wasted on the air; like the cloud-wrack our life passes away, unsubstantial as the mist yonder sun disperses with its ray, bears down with its heat. Time will surely efface our memory, and none will mark the record of our doings. Only a passing shadow, this life of ours, and from its end there is no returning; the doom is sealed, and there is no acquittal.

Come then (they say), let us enjoy pleasure, while pleasure is ours; youth does not last, and creation is at our call; of rich wine and well spiced take we our fill. Spring shall not cheat us of her blossoming; crown we our heads with roses ere they wither; be every meadow the scene of our wanton mirth. Share we the revels all alike, leave traces everywhere of our joyous passing; no part or lot have we but this.

Helpless innocence shall lie at our mercy; not for us to spare the widow, to respect the venerable head, grown white with years. Might shall be our right, weakness count for proof of worthlessness. Where is he, the just man? We must plot to be rid of him; he will not lend himself to our purposes. Ever he must be thwarting our plans; transgress we the law, he is all reproof, depart we from the traditions of our race, he denounces us.

550 How do you get picked to stand on that elevated spot and wield the megaphone at the Portland protest? Do you have to know someone?

I think Wheeler was escorted by Rose City Justice, which has been having mass peaceful marches, and has steered clear of confrontation with police. RCJ is also run by actual black people.

95% white Antifa hates Rose City Justice, of course.

551 537- Just popping in to say Get Those Shingles Shots. Miley the Duchess has posted about shingles, and my mother also had them. Very uncomfortable.
Posted by: Blonde Morticia at July 23, 2020 01:31 AM

My sister has already had them twice. A hairdresser at my salon got them on her face and neck. It was awful! I asked my doctor twice for the shot in 2018 and he said there was a new version out that was preferable but it was on back order/hard to get. I guess I should try a little harder because I am terrified of getting them. Ugh!

Posted by: Moonbeam at July 23, 2020 01:39 AM (qe5CM)

552 Yep, a no-brainer - get the shingles shot. Shots, actually, new one's a series of 2 (shingrix). I got the old one (zostavax), conventional advice is to get the new one too if you've already had the old one.

Of course not the slightest similarity with any C19 vaccine (if developed and proven, which would be a first for a c-virus), at all.

Miley was really leery of fire ants when she got down here, but now she doesn't even care. Well, as we all know, you don't want to step on a hill and get swarmed, of course. But stray foraging ants will sometimes get on you, get pissed, and pop you. She doesn't even flinch about it, now.

Posted by: publius, Rascally Rapscallion of a Poperin Pear at July 23, 2020 01:40 AM (rCwaK)

554 Moonbeam, get your prescription and if needed get on the list with pharmacies in the region. It's true, it's supply-short, probably because during the initial phase, people like me (who had the old one) are also getting the new one - demand will smooth out after this, so I'm sure the producer is not ramping production just to meet the short-term problem (kind of like ammunition manufacturers, and gun panics).

Get on a list. I only waited 2 months.

Not pro-Antifa enough (despite his coddling of Antifa), and he's not ordering Portland cops to try and arrest the Feds. He also doesn't believe in cutting the police budget by 50%, as the Left is demanding.

From that bit right there, I conclude that he's a simpering, unprincipled, compromising hack. He runs a sanctuary city but tolerates the Feds. He coddles antifa but won't defund cops. Stupid political hack trying to have it all ways.

556 >> What, you can get shingles more than once?

Yes indeed, but it's rare for normal people. My situation is not normal. But it does happen.

It's the chickenpox virus,herpes zoster. First time, you get chickenpox. The virus stays in your body, dormant in nerve cells. It can reactivate, and when it does, that's Shingles.

My doc keeps me in acyclovir, the antiviral used for it. I've got a bottle right now, ready to go.

Duly noted, but I would still have the same reservations. Is the new shingles shot a combo with something else? I thought my doctor said it also covered pneumonia, but it was a couple of years ago so my memory is pretty fuzzy.

559 No, shingles series completely different than pneumonia shot.

Consult with doc - and get the shingles shot. Pneumonia shot has slightly different guidance, I think - I haven't considered getting it.

As publius explained quite well, shingles is an inherent viral threat almost everyone carries, a remnant of chickenpox. Not infectious. But you do NOT want shingles, which can be brought on any number of ways - stress, trauma, etc.

Unless there's some specific medical reason you shouldn't get those shots, GET THEM.

You got a love the '70s. The episode started with Mannix chasing and shooting some joker wearing a red shirt with yellow polka dots, and a YUGE yellow tie. Mannix busted in on him with his girlfriend. Very chivalrous fellow -- he grabbed the girl and pushed her into Mannix, allowing him to jump out a window.

Mannix gave chase, gunfight ensued, and Mannix shot him. Luckily, a power pole protected Mannix from the first shot. No such luck for the other guy.

640 Seeing as how I got willowed, and then napped, earlier:

Seeing as how I got willowed last thread.... (Do you get willowed or do you willow yourself?)

The opposite of win is "lose", not "loose". (I know, I know,
fonetically they're "lohz" and "luce", with the latter sounding closer,
in your brain, as you type, to "looz", ergo.... Hey, if "lose" is
"looz", why isn't "close" "clooz"? Friggin' English.) Oh, and always,
always, while proofreading (what's that???), make sure for every open
paren you have ("("), you have a close paren (")"). If you don't have
the same amount of each, you need to start paren matching. It's fun!

I
have a topical movie recco which would be great for that Sunday thingy:
Frank Capra's "Meet John Doe". Quite relevant (although from a
different slant) to today.

Posted by: SFGoth at July 23, 2020 02:58 AM (KAi1n)

641 SFGoth, interesting philosophical question. Are we willowed by others, or is it possible that one can only be willowed by oneself? Is "to willow" an active or a passive verb?

Posted by: Caesar North of the Rubicon at July 23, 2020 03:02 AM (jK8Z7)

642 Caesar good to see you.

I think there's a good chance that FBI/DHS will pre-empt some of what you're talking about, re attacks on federal facilities. Little birds tell me there is a lot of mapping and penetration etc in progress.

Meanwhile, I've actually to get back to a book to see how things end.

Well, I actually know how they end - Japan attacks Pearl Harbor. But less than 2 months before that, you have a PM (Tojo) brought in expressly to undo the path-to-war "imperial conference decision" of September '41, who recruited, almost exclusively, anti-war cabinet members. How TF did that end up with Pearl Harbor?

I knew Japanese leadership was very divided, but how they ended up going ahead, when the Palace and most of the Navy and even a lot of the Army realized war with the US was extremely risky, amazes me.

Book is "Japan 1941: Countdown to Infamy" by Eri Hotta.

643 Caesar, it depends on context. What situation does "willow" describe: 1) the poster posting after the "nood" was been cried, or 2) the fact that Ace needs to take his mind off gainzzz and installing bookshelves improperly, and find a way to indicate to people who are about to enter willow land that there is a nood! Get it done, Ace. Willowing, whether it's an active, passive, or reflexive verb is rayciss. It is rayciss because in the future it will be declared rayciss, so in the emanations and penumbras of the all-unifying space-time continuum (which is rayciss but knee-bending), it is rayciss now.

Remember Minneapolis, where this all started? Dems have been running it for 59 years. They've been running Philly for 68 years. Chicago for 89.

But sure, it's "Trump" who's responsible for the "racist cops" in those cities.

It literally isn't. In my sparsely populated County of 10,000 people we have had 8 deaths. They reported the age of the first two and the fact that both of them were in assisted living and after that they stopped reporting anything about deaths.


We have more deaths during a normal flu season than this virus. And that includes the entire State of Texas.

818 Congress is considering new legislation that would level sanctions on Chinese, Russian, and Iranian hackers who steal sensitive U.S. data, including new research on the coronavirus.

It doesn't take very much spin at all for the Communists at XiNN to make this a hair-on-fire additional indictment for impeaching Trump.

All they have to do is frame the article in how important it is to find a cure and the whole world is unified to do this - OrangeManBad is stopping major countries from assisting in this.

OTOH, you have to wonder WTF is our government the Deep State doing dreaming up ways to weaponize this CoViD even further. Because it is pretty damned clear that if this current research is classified and leaking it to our enemies is dangerous, then what the Deep State has in mind to unleash upon us.

I have traveled extensively in the back waters of Florida. Its not all palm trees and sandy beaches! Those exist mostly just along the coast in the retirement and vacation communities. Some areas of Florida are poor and probably will never get better, no matter how much reparations is thrown at it. New housing developments built inland mostly for northern rich are the exception. Go up into central Florida well north of Orlando and up to the border of Georgia. Very different Florida, as an example.

846 An ONT with filler material, who would have thought? He who smelt it dealt it.

As that anti-masker having a tantrum in a Panera pointed out, you can smell a fart even though it passes through the fabric of your pants. Her point seems to be that fabric cannot block air, and thus masks cannot block things that are carried in air. She's wrong, but let's examine why.

A cloth mask's job is to block droplets containing the coronavirus. It works best to block the large droplets that come from your own mouth and nose (so you won't risk infecting others), but it may also provide some protection against droplets produced by other people.


So what exactly is this article saying? I read the entire thing and I still don't know.

She does a lot of ranting about "anti-maskers" and how they're wrong. But she also states that masks block anywhere from 5% to 95% of droplets.

Um, that's a pretty big range there. From pretty much non-effective to 95% effective.

And she does not address the fact that the masks sold at stores specifically state on the box that they do not protect against SARS-CoV-2.

So what exactly was the point of that article?

2) Stop spreading to yourself.
3) Stop spreading to others.
4) Both 2 & 3.

They chose 3, but not 2 or 4 because 3 is non falsifiable. That is, if a person religiously wears The Veil and still gets infected, the scam is revealed. There is no way on earth that anyone can provide empirical evidence that "stop spreading to others" works or not. If anything, it can be used as a cudgel against those who still enjoy a level of freedom, because they can claim it requires 100% adoption in order to work.

I suspect that this is the reason why more illegal orders are being made to force people at gun-point to wear The Veil 24/365, even at home.

I believe there are a couple reasons why the big name universities screamed so loudly about denying education visas even though the university campuses are closed can be discovered by looking at the names of the graduating classes in graduate level STEM.

The Fe'ral government essentially doles out tax dollars to universities who farm the actual work out to Asians who take that research home while the university quietly patents any fruitful results.

The US Government is a fully owned subsidiary of the Communist Chinese Party.

An interesting story was about the lab where the Covid maybe originated. Remember the story? The French built the lab, it was supposed to be a collaborative place. But when it was finished, it seemed so dangerous, the French essentially refused to even visit for the opening ceremony.
We have this view of the Chinese as brilliant, organized people.The Chinese do okay when they are in our systems in the west, the labs and universities and companies. But they can not maintain their own such labs/unis/companies to the same standards. I do not know why.
I think I have this very positive view of the Chinese and their brains and work ethic, based a bit on the overachievers/outliers who make it to our country to work or study, but I/we are starting to see they have major deficiencies when not in our systems.

I do like how pretty much every diet is the complete and total opposite of the food pyramid. Its a combination of elements within the government wanting us dead or ill so we would have to suck down medical services, the government meal programs that would prefer to go the cheap route of carbs vs protein/fats, vegans who infiltrate government and corrupt the data, and just plain incompetence.

Mostly incompetence though.

That would be static analysis. I submit that there would be a greater level of integration of DNA. History proves this to be true.

Posted by: smile and wave, boys at July 23, 2020 07:41 AM

100% adoption and 100% used properly.

Except, they are not enforcing the latter. The fact is that the masks are less effective if they are not handled or worn properly.

The proper way to wear it is to put it on before leaving one's home and then not touching it again until one is back home and can discard it properly.

But what we're seeing people do is put them in their pockets or wear them around their necks and then put them on their face only when going into a place mandating mask-wearing.

All that touching and rearranging of the mask... ends up making it much less effective. Plus now people have been touching their masks with all their germs on them and have those germs on their hands. Hands which they use to eat in restaurants and shop for groceries, etc.

Also, you notice no one is requiring a specific type of mask. So long as you're wearing anything covering your mouth and nose, you're considered "wearing a mask".

And I suspect this is on purpose. They have turned the mask into a "fashion statement", instead of medical protection. Because they know that if they required everyone to wear the medical masks, people would hate it.

Can you imagine how many people would have to be turned away from shopping or going out to restaurants if they required only the medical masks or N95 masks?

It's all ridiculous.
