The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask and he will tell you the Truth." Oscar Wilde


Quote II

"With current interstate travel restrictions in place due to COVID-19, the attempt to import illicit drugs into Australia shows how opportunistic and greedy organised crime can be," AFP Deputy Commissioner Ian McCartney


Quote III

“Any Hawaiian here who is aware of their history – which most Hawaiians are – would absolutely, Catholic or not, defend the legacy of Damien as a man who was embraced by the people, and who is a hero to us because of his love for the Hawaiian people,Catholic News Agency's Matt Hadro


Quote IV

China rocks in my opinion. The energy in China is great. People there – there’s like a lot of smart, hard working people. And they’re really -- they’re not entitled, they’re not complacent, whereas I see in the United States increasingly much more complacency and entitlement especially in places like the Bay Area, and L.A. and New York.” Elon Musk

It's all fun and games until BLM comes after an ally. Or LOLGF.

OAKLAND, Calif. — The Democrat mayor of Oakland, California just learned the hard way how vile Black Lives Matter protesters can get when the organization vandalized her home.

Now, Mayor Libby Schaaf is singing a different tune about BLM, as she’s accusing the protesters of terrorism, Drew Berquist reported.

The vandalism reportedly occurred early Tuesday morning and involved thirty to forty protesters dressed all in black, according to the Sacramento Bee. Witnesses saw the rioters setting off projectiles and firecrackers as they spray-painted messages on Schaaf’s stone wall, sidewalk and garage, including “Defund OPD,” “homes 4 all,” and “blood on your hands.”

I wouldn't pay you $3.50 for a PB & J sammich. I'll be damned if I would pay $350.00 for one.

Chicago restaurant owners Matthew and Josh McCahill are selling "The Golden Goose," their take on a peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich.

The $350 sandwich lives on the menu at PB&J, which stands for Pizza, Beer & Jukebox. The restaurant claims it's the world's most expensive peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich.

The sandwich is made with Adams all-natural peanut butter, imported French jam, and bread baked with gold leaf inside.

NASA is happy today. A successful splash down has taken place. Welcome back astronauts.

Two NASA astronauts splashed down in the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday afternoon, completing a two-month mission that sent them to the International Space Station to test SpaceX's groundbreaking Crew Dragon shuttle capsule.

Astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken landed gently in the Endeavor capsule off Pensacola, Fla., at 2:48 p.m. EDT, assisted by two sets of parachutes that slowed the descent. A crew from the SpaceX Go Navigator hoist the capsule onto the vessel

Germans march for freedom. That's a refreshing change of events.

Thousands of people assembled in the German capital to rally against anti-coronavirus restrictions, describing the measures as undemocratic and a threat to freedom.

Around 15,000 protesters took part in the event, dubbed ‘The end of the pandemic – freedom day’, according to German media, citing a police estimate.

Hmmm. I've never been kicked out of a plasma center. That's one thing Rebecca Ortinez cannot claim.

UTAH COUNTY, Utah (KUTV) — Rebecca Ortinez expected to wait in line outside a Utah County plasma center, so she wore an outfit for the heat.

Once inside, the outfit quickly landed her back outside with a trespass order.

“[The manager] said, ‘I’m going to have to ask you to leave because your clothing is too disruptive, or too distracting to other patrons and my employees,'” Ortinez told 2News. “She kept commenting about my physical appearance; she mentioned my nipples multiple times, which was embarrassing for me.”

Perhaps a pair of Genius Award Winners. Or can a business force you to wear a mask?

Details are emerging over why a Delta Air Lines flight to Atlanta was turned around and returned to Detroit on Thursday, and once again face masks are the issue.

According to reports, two passengers refused to wear face masks during the flight – a mandate for virtually every airline – and the plane returned to Detroit Metro Airport in suburban Romulus.

A Delta spokesperson told the MLive.com media outlet that the flight was delayed because the passengers “were non-compliant with crew instructions.” The flight did take off again and land in Atlanta after being delayed by the return to Detroit.

My take? Traveling sucks enough without a couple of jackasses f*cking it up for everyone else.

I remember first seeing Bob Ross on television while I was recovering from surgery. It's hard to believe he's been gone 25 years and still has a large following.


“Every day’s a good day when you paint.” —Bob Ross (1942–1995)

Staring at the empty canvas on the easel in front of me, I couldn’t understand how this—nothing—might somehow transform into even a rough approximation of the Bob Ross painting we were using as a model. That painting was classic Bob Ross: a snowy landscape bursting with color, a world of glimmering trees and vibrant shrubs around a slick, icy pond. Gazing at it evoked that feeling you get sitting by a fire on a crisp, cold night. No way I could make anything like that.


I was in a room on the side of a big-box craft store in the suburbs north of Dallas, about to start a class taught by John Fowler, a Bob Ross–certified instructor—which means that he spent three weeks in Florida learning the wet-on-wet painting technique Ross employed on television. A tall, bespectacled man in his 60s, with a light beard and a deep voice and soothing cadence reminiscent of Ross himself, John explained that he has a few things in common with the puffy-haired painter. They both spent many years in the Air Force, for example, and both retired with the rank of master sergeant. I’d learn he also uses some Bob Ross vernacular, sprinkling instructions with expressions such as “We don’t make mistakes, we just have happy accidents.”


John watched Bob Ross on The Joy of Painting for years, both during the show’s original run in the 1980s and ’90s, then later by streaming it. Four years ago, John decided to get some paint and a canvas and try painting along with the host. He liked it so much that he took some lessons. Then he liked those so much he paid about $400, not including supplies or lodging, and signed up for the official “Certified Ross Instructor” class, taught by Bob Ross Inc. trainers. When we met, John was wearing a black T-shirt with the painter’s face on it.


He certainly made it look easy. Me? Nope, not even close.

The things you learn using the internet.

School teachers have always said, “There are no stupid questions.” If nothing else, the internet is built on that philosophy. No matter how ridiculous the question, the web will provide an answer. Inquiries like, what goes on in the space between a car’s rim and tire? Sure, there’s air, but what does it look like when the rubber meets the road? YouTube channel Warped Perception set out to answer that question by sticking a GoPro camera with a light inside the tire of a Mercedes-Benz to show a perspective we would otherwise never see or even consider.

Play stupid games and win stupid prizes. Buh-bye.

He probably wasn’t an emperor, but he had no clothes, and nonetheless got crowned.

A naked man taking a stroll for some reason on a busy street got a ferocious comeuppance from an annoyed driver in a video clip that was shared by actor and outspoken conservative James Woods to his 2.5 million followers.

The motorist whose car was apparently being defiantly blocked by the nude man standing with his arms folded took matters into his own hands.

After a brief conversation, he violently punched the exposed pedestrian in the head, sending the clothes-free man to the asphalt.

About 1 man in 41 will die of prostate cancer. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

new blood test for prostate cancer is producing a 99% accuracy rating—precision that has never before been achieved for a blood test of this particular kind of cancer.

Furthermore, the test can determine the exact stage and progression of the cancer, which also reduces the need for invasive biopsies and scans.

The team behind the breakthrough, involving researchers from Nottingham Trent University and University Hospitals Leicester NHS Trust, determined that changes in the patient’s immune system could be examined through blood markers—specifically white blood cells.

37 Sitting here trying to who to vote against on the (Democrat and Third Party) primary ballot I have sitting in front of me.

There are some real winners.

For Senate:

The one guy has been endorsed by the NeverTrump cucks at the Lincoln Project. Nah, brah.

Another one is a recovering opiate addict with autism and schizophrenia. He might be entertaining, at least, but nah.

The AIP guy can't manage a coherent sentence on his web site, and appears to be an old-school "precious bodily fluids" Bircher. Nah.

The last one was a Republican until recently, but appears to have developed some kind of butthurt against Dan Sullivan. Probably vote for him.

For U.S. Representative:

Alaska Native guy who, though a Democrat, favors oil drilling, opposes abortion, and opposes mandatory union membership.

The second one is a lying DeepState wannabe who calls herself "non-partisan", but somehow always collects tons of cash from outside lefty PACs. Nah.

The third one calls himself a "Harry Truman Democrat", and claims to be totally pissed off by Pelosi's antics.


Probably will vote for the Native guy.

The only other race on this primary ballot, and has a long-time D corruptocrat running unopposed. Not going to vote on that one.

It's really just for fun, since there is approximately zero chance that any of these yahoos will unseat Don Young, or even Dan Sullivan.

Awhile back, some Moron was asking about changing their bank to somewhere else and was looking for alternatives to BoA, iirc.

Many here suggested get thee to a credit union.

Case in point: Chase recently sent me a text stating 'during these uncertain times' they were increasing the daily limit for depositing checks by means of their mobile app to $5000.

Navy Federal Credit Union's daily limit on depositing checks on their mobile app is $50K. Yeah, $5 0 0 0 0.

52 Missed gub thread but for good reason, very nice long day on the water with some friends. Just sight-seeing, stopping somewhere for lunch, drinking.

Got a good look at the USS Bonhomme Richard, of course from just outside the floating barrier. A fair amount of scaffolding and cranes and other repair/construction gear already visible on her - the collapsed mast and some charring/smoke marks around a few openings only real evidence of what happened. Ship had no list, they probably took care of that right away.

His singing voice is like Woody Guthrie. You either get it, or you don't, and there's nothing wrong with not liking it.

The man was and is one of the most brilliant songwriters in history, though, IMO.

59 I don't know if it's luck of the draw or just the times (probably the latter), but the primary races around here are the most contentious I've ever known. Four people running for the state Senate seat in my district, two running for the seat right next door, and they're all Republicans so it's a shouting match about who's the true-bluest Trump supporter. Add to that a bunch of county offices, and it's just a mess.

And I get the feeling more people are paying more attention to these races than before. This is 80/20 Trump country, but there's a general feeling that sh*t is about to get real, and we'd better get the right people now.

So, the female employee was awfully interested in another females nipples. Bet she didn't get any complaints from the men. The male donors probably considered the nipples a better reward than a crappy cookie, and if the employees were distracted, they weren't very dependable.

78 George R.R. Martin is getting canceled on Twitter right now.

Seems he said some nice things about guys like John W. Campbell and Robert A. Heinlein while hosting the Hugo Awards (which frankly I didn't even know had happened this year).


Of course, as Larry Correia puts it, the guy probably lives in a house built out of solid gold bars, so I don't think the "cancelling" is going to be very effective.

For those who haven't followed the Hugo drama in recent years, the awards have been hijacked by extreme leftists, leading to things such as one guy (I think he goes by "ze" or "xim" or some such) having won three years in a row, despite not having a book that's ranked above 2 million or so on Amazon.

But he's trans!

But they did get a working solar panel plant for their money, yes? It's not just a fake, like Obama's Solyndra bullshit?

Yeah. Sorry. If they bought something from him and he gave them value for money, that's what we call "business".

Within its limits, I think he's right. China is dynamic and full of people who are eager to cash in on capitalism. What he doesn't mention is that China also has no traditions of commerce that equate to the 700 years of trading customs and values that we inherited from England. In China, it's all make a fast buck now and if you have to lie, cheat or screw your customer to do it, then that's okay.

Dealing with a Chinese enterprise, you have to assume that it will swindle you at the first available opportunity.

241 Evening all. Just poured concrete into two large 50 pound weight plates for my bench.
Why?
$5 per 50 pound bag of quickcrete at Home Depot.
Also, can't get any metal plates because they have been sold out or on backorder this the Kung Flu smacked us. And because they are only made in CHYYNAAAH.

So these will have to do.

What part of "Face masks should not be seen as a magic bullet that halts the spread." do you not understand?

You are quoting a report that clearly says they are of limited usefulness in order to support your delusion that they are some kind of magic bullet

I'd be OK with masks on public transit, seeing as I avoid public transit at all costs.

243 "Not really"

Why not? Hey, at least they're competing to see who can be the loudest and proudest Trump supporter, which is more than can be said for the RINOs us blue state residents tend to get stuck with. At the very least it's an indication that you could probably wear a MAGA hat or sport a Trump bumper sticker without risking vandalism, battery, or worse in that district.

Heh. If a buyer takes delivery of a Tesla truck at the factory gate, he'll have to stop and recharge 3 times just to get out of Texas.

==

Let's see if it adds up. Texas is 660mi wide. Tesla truck can go 500mi on a charge. I image it is under the best conditions. So, let's say 400mi. One time recharge. Ford 150 gets 22mpg. Also under best conditions. So lets say 18-20. Tank capacity 26, right ? 26x20 = 520 mi. Comparable.

254 Saw a new looking Tesla on I-95 in NoVA the other day. It had Florida plates. My first thought was "How many days to get home to Miami?"

I searched for 'Tesla chargers' on google maps. It looks like you can make it if you take 95, but you've got to map things out like an old-timey road trip.

101 36 people running for governor in WA state. There are Republicans, Trump Republicans and pre 2016 Republicans. Those are descriptions they used. And we all know it will be Inslee against another Dem, probably a nutcase.
Posted by: Notsothoreau at August 02, 2020 10:29 PM (YynYJ)
--------------

WA state primary ballot-filler-outers:

Please do NOT waste your vote on Loren Culp. He will be slaughtered in the November general. Or Tim Eyeman, who has more baggage with voters than a 747 headed to Australia.

Yes, he is a county sheriff that stood up to Emperor Jay. Yes, he understands the law. And Eyeman is a folk hero to some, with the $30 car tab initiatives.

But either will be decimated by the Western WA press and lose by 25 points.

If you want to win, I recommend Joshua Freed or Phil Fortunato. Nobody else has a chance.

And they probably don't either, with the corrupt voter rolls here in WA.

But these 2 (Bothell mayor 12 years, or State Rep 4 years and knows Olympia) are the only ones that can appeal to the East side wine moms, many of whom have seen their husband's businesses wilt and die.

But those wine moms have to relate. And they look for some level of government experience. And the candidate has to be pretty.

Freed is pretty, Fortunato is goofy but personable.
Both know how to get around in government. None of the others do.

This is how the middle thinks in Western WA today. At this point, we just need a win.

270 re the comments about Karen Bass -- Breitbart has done a deep dive on ol' Bass's past, and she has shit-tons of communist mentors :

In 2010, Bass won her U.S. House seat, where her voting record has been typical of a progressive member of a Democratic Party increasingly embracing socialism.

However, a deep dive into Bass's background reveals that her influences were not just socialist, but hardcore communist.

Real charge time may be less as you need to get to a charging station before the battery gets below a certain level or the car/truck magically transforms into a brick that has to be carried on a flatbed to a Tesla service center.

309 I am reading Cordwainer Smith, which is the pen name for paul Linebarger who was deeply involved with China for most of his life, and in a number of his stories he alludes the the Chinese as doing shoddy work and overcharging for it, and swindling you in the bargain. This may have been going on for a while.

This, X1000.

The Chinese have no cultural or moral need to behave well in business or any other enterprise. Why would they?

The true clash of cultures is that we completely lack a frame of reference for their nonchalance about swindling and stealing. We do it too, but we are ashamed of it. They are proud of it and brag on it as well.

I think this goes back to the Ming dynasty, that took over from the Mongol dynasty. There was a major retrenchment to China Only and China best thinking that pretty much stunted them economically and technology-wise. That was when they turned their back on initiating trade overseas and turned back to small holding farmers and village level crafts after having a mini-industrial revolution in the 12th century.

A standard internal combustion engine car or truck has 20,000+ moving parts.
Posted by: navybrat at large at August 02, 2020 11:24 PM (w7KSn)

Nowhere near close. Not even if you count the door latches. Eight pistons, eight connecting rods, one crankshaft, 17 so far, right? 16 valves, and each has a lifter, push rod, rocker arm, and spring, 80 moving parts in total for the valve train, timing chain, makes 98 so far. Two parts for the oil pump, a round hundred for the engine. Clutch disc, transmission input shaft, two more, transmission counter shaft. Three mainshaft gears, reverse idler gear, mainshaft. 108 and counting. Drive shaft, 109. Differential pinion, 110, crown gear and carrier, 111. Two spider gear, 113, two axles, 115.

And that gets us out to the wheels, which Teslas have, too.

A speaker denounced the "wall of moms" for leaving the area in front of the protective fence when the peaceful protest starts intensifying.

Apparently, the "wall of moms" is supposed to stand in front of the Antifa people attacking the courthouse, so the moms can be hit with the impact munitions, and provide lots of nice gory pictures for Antifa PR.

The speaker was so obnoxious that about half of the "moms" spontaneously walked out en masse during the speech. They were pursed by a harridan with another megaphone screaming that they weren't allowed to walk out of the struggle session while they were being criticized.

Here's a funny/horrible story I haven't thought about in years... my uncle was a good dad, but he died young and his wife was an unfit mother, so my mom adopted my cousin.

The day she landed in Denver to come live with us, we got off to a rocky start. She literally walked through the door, set down her bags, and got to witness the Moment of Reckoning between me and my older brother.

He had just fucked with me for the very last time, as she was climbing the stairs. I put him through a piano bench, and then a wall. And then another. And then another. Just blood everywhere, punctuated by screams of pain and rage.

My dad and I patched up the damage to the drywall and the rest of the living room over several days before she'd come out of her room.

Nothing like that ever happened again in front of her, and we all laugh about it now, but it had to be a rough welcome.

I am reading Cordwainer Smith, which is the pen name for paul Linebarger who was deeply involved with China for most of his life, and in a number of his stories he alludes the the Chinese as doing shoddy work and overcharging for it, and swindling you in the bargain. This may have been going on for a while.
Posted by: Kindltot at August 02, 2020 11:32 PM (WyVLE)


This, X1000.

The Chinese have no cultural or moral need to behave well in business or any other enterprise. Why would they?

The true clash of cultures is that we completely lack a frame of reference for their nonchalance about swindling and stealing. We do it too, but we are ashamed of it. They are proud of it and brag on it as well.
Posted by: tcn in AK at August 02, 2020 11:35 PM (qQnCr)






Over the past few months I've been reading up on the Chinese military and it's like they have a compulsion to fuck over anyone and everyone when they build weapons. Including their own allies.

The Russians have finally realized that when the ChiComs say they want to buy 2 or 3 planes to "test" them before placing a big order, that means that they intend to rip them apart down to the last bolt and rivet, in order to reverse-engineer it.

"Whadda ya mean license, gweilo? This J-15 jet fighter is totes 100% Chinese-designed, it just LOOKS like a Russian SU-33. Oh, by the way. Can we buy a bunch of your jet engines? Because we can't build them consistently yet."

Also, look up the story of how they got their first carrier, the Liaoning. Reads like a black comedy.

Tesla Charging:

A few years ago, Tesla had a charge time calculator on its website. Lat time I checked, the calculator is no longer there.

A 200-mile charge for a Model S took about 58 minutes, using a Tesla Supercharger.

This is just the charging time, not the move into place, connect, then disconnect and move 20 feet or so, so the next vehicle can charge.

THIS means that 1 (ONE) Supercharger can (fully?) charge 23 Teslas in 1 day ... and that driving across Texas (660 miles) will require 3 charges, or at least 3 extra hours (~15 hours, instead of ~12).

Driving from San Jose CA to LA requires at least 1 stop (where the road to Bakersfield connects to I-5). Yeah, this is real bullshit.

There are recent stories of Tesla owners waiting 5 or so hours at charging stations in Tehachapi CA.

I am amused.

405 Rodrigo, I had an Anthro prof who had a section on cannibalism in his intro course. He referred to works that figured output of energy against calories earned in cannibalism is New Guinea. Apparently in the highlands, farming is very profitable, and in the low lands and jungle fishing and hunting serves, but the middle areas is where it pencils out.

Cannibalism outside of those areas is considered to be "Vanity" in that it serves a social purpose but is not completely sustainable as a food source.

That course did three things, it taught me to stay the hell away from that part of the world, it taught me to think in terms of calories earned, and I got to think about other practices that on the surface cost more than what they earn, especially for things like food production.

there is a term used for Meso America called "eating the forest" which is supposed to be using practices that take more out of the forest that can grow causing deforestation and starvation, so yes there was that. And there are clear indications that all the Classic civilization of the Maya and whatever suffered from starvations and deforestation maybe related to long periods of drought in an area that really doesn't hold any water. However the Aztecs did seem to come out of the (now) American Southwest and pushed southward into central Mexico and were not only ritually cannibalistic, but the elites were also seriously predating on their neighbors and each other.
It seems to be more of a reign of terror for the Aztecs than any real need.

I have never saw any analysis of whether the peon on the street was also eating his neighbors.

454 > I have never saw any analysis of whether the peon on the street was also eating his neighbors.

Sun god got the heart. Head went on the skull rack. Three of the limbs went to the guy who'd captured the prisoner, who would throw a feast for his friends and family (fate of the other limb is not known).

Torso went to feed animals in the sacred zoo.

The article is "The Ecological Basis for Aztec Sacrifice" by Michael Harner. Web search should turn up the PDF.

Harner is/has been apparently been canceled of late, for having the nerve to suggest that the Aztecs were murdering, cannibalistic savages rather than peace-loving indigenes who lived in Harmony with Nature until the Evil White Man showed up.

I like Neal Stephenson's take, which is that it's a true measure of what assholes the Aztecs were that when the Spanish Inquistion took over, things actually got more humane around those parts.

the Tesla Roadster, one of his first, was offered as a convertible.

Only reason I know this was remembering Jay Leno's Garage on CNBC a couple months ago, and they had one on there.

Even though Jay is a bonafide Leftie, I do like his show. It used to be only about cars but got boring, so he has changed it up to be like Seinfelds "Two People Talking" in a car, and it is more like a talk show with cars.

There is a segment that has 3 different cars and a guy named Donald ? (sorry, Evan Williams doses are putting brain cells asleep as we speak) who is an interesting guy and a car expert. The premise is to guess which one has increased in value over the past year.

They had that roadster, a 2010 model, as a convertible. They took it for a spin and it screamed. Something like 0-60 in 3.5 seconds. It was incredible. And in the past few years had gone up by a couple hundred percent.

But being all-electric, it makes no noise, unlike a Porsche or Lotus, which they compared it to. They were the slower ones.

498 The Tesla Roadster that Musk launched towards Mars, was a convertible. Or at least, a Targa.

Those were based (IIRC), on the Lotus platform, adapted to the Tesla systems.

Typical of anything Lotus, you don't get *into* the car, so much as you wear it.

p.s. The early '70s John Player Special F-1 Lotus was still the most striking visage of an open wheeled race car in modern times.

I did not know that. Thing is, the range/climate limitations of the electric car are mostly irrelevant in a convertible, because most convertible owners don't use them as daily drivers, or for long road trips. The usage pattern of the typical convertible is a good fit for the electric car's characteristics.

YouTube is being really nice to me tonight.

Tom Petty. dude.


I was in love with a girl on marijuana
She said "If I'm not stoned, I don't wanna"
But she got so paranoid
Her place I would avoid
I was in love with a girl on marijuana

I was in love with a girl on cocaine
She had everything going but a brain
We'd talk endlessly for hours
But by morning it'd go sour
I was in love with a girl on cocaine

Through ecstasy, crystal meth and glue
I found no drug that compares to you
All these pills, all this weed
I don't know just what I need

I was in love with a girl on LSD
She'd see things I'd never see
She broadened her perspective
Then I got more selective
I was in love with a girl on LSD

Through ecstasy, crystal meth and glue
I found no drug that compares to you
All these pills, all this weed
I don't know just what I need

I was in love with a girl who drank beer
'Til bad breath and all she disappeared
She was blowing up real bad
But when she left I was still sad
I was in love with a girl who drank beer

I was in love with a girl on China white
We were married for a year one night
Her memory still lingers
'Cause I burned all my fingers
I was in love with a girl on China white

I was in love with a girl who drank coffee
There were times when I couldn't keep her off me
That caffeine got her going
But her ugly side was showing
I was in love with a girl who drank coffee

I was in love with a girl who was a dealer
I was afraid somebody would come and steal her
We never used to fight
But the phone rang day and night
I was in love with a girl who was a dealer

Sure as hell
She got popped by the big guys

Him: I don't.

Me: You're doing it now. That's Creek Ally.

Him: That's the White Stripes ...

Me - listening a little more carefully: Oh.

Ridiculous comparison.

The Spanish Inquisition killed about 4000 people in Spain and its many possessions over a span of nearly 400 years.

The Aztecs often killed more than that in a single day.
You almost have to invoke the great Progressive butchers of the 20th century to get comparable figures.

"Gloria" history: In Tozzi's version, Gloria is a fantasy girl he conjures up in his imagination and begins to believe is real. He goes crazy and vows to search for her all his life if need be.

Brannigan and her bunch were going to translate that directly to English (and it was originally), and call it "Mario", having her conjure up "Mario". But that didn't work, and they changed it to her addressing a girl named Gloria, who was going out of her mind.

791 By chance, I watched "The NeverEnding Story" last night. Loved this movie as a kid. Came out in 1984. And I did not realize until watching it last night that it has a 1984 message.

The scene where Atreyu talks to the G'mork towards the end of the movie. Imagine "Fantasia" as the USA. A world of human fantasy. A world where people from all over fantasize about wanting to come to live their lives. And "the Nothing" as Communism. A despair, destroying this world.

The quote about control and power is what got me.
===

G'mork: Fantasia has no boundaries.

Atreyu: That's not true! You're lying.

G'mork: Foolish boy. Don't you know anything about Fantasia? It's the world of human fantasy. Every part, every creature of it, is a piece of the dreams and hopes of mankind. Therefore, it has no boundaries.

Atreyu: But why is Fantasia dying, then?

G'mork: Because people have begun to lose their hopes and forget their dreams. So the Nothing grows stronger.

Atreyu: What is the Nothing?

G'mork: It's the emptiness that's left. It's like a despair, destroying this world. And I have been trying to help it.

Atreyu: But why?

G'mork: Because people who have no hopes are easy to control; and whoever has the control... has the power!

Atreyu: Who are you, really?

G'mork: I am the servant of the power behind the Nothing. I was sent to kill the only one who could have stopped the Nothing. I lost him in the Swamps of Sadness. His name... was Atreyu.

Atreyu: [the ground shakes again and Atreyu is knocked down. He grabs a knife shaped piece of broken stone and stands up, ready to fight] If we're about to die anyway, I'd rather die fighting! Come for me, G'mork! *I* am Atreyu!

but hubby says because of how crappy our coverage is that maybe might work out to more money from them instead of if he declared total roof

813 About 10 years ago, a friend and I visited a farm far out in the country owned by someone he knew. In the sagging old barn was a very dusty DeLorean. All covered with spiders and what not. The barn is gone now, and the owner of the land has died. Often wonder what happened to that car. It looked in good shape, from what I could see.

--

Mr. Black and I were one of the 5% who were not wearing our muzzles initially this weekend. Nearly everyone was masked up. But don't forget to factor in that many stores are requiring you to wear one. We were in Bed, Bath and Beyond, shopping unmasked for a long while when the loudspeakers came on about social distancing-protecting our patrons-we require masks diddy played. We both put ours on at that point.

Also, we went into Kohls and I was shopping next to a grandmother and her granddaughter (early 20s). They were complaining to each other about having to wear these ridiculous masks. So when you're forced to do it in order to shop in particular stores, don't automatically assume people aren't aware of the BS it is. At least, that's the way I look at it.

Media is nothing but propaganda now. Straight-up propaganda.

I was watching a show over the weekend on ID Discovery. During the commercial break, there was an ad for an upcoming show. Know what it was? You'll be surprised to know they're doing an in-depth show called something like, "Climate of Hate: Charlottesville." Complete with imagery of white arms doing the Heil Hitler salute. Yes, folks. An expose on Charlottesville and the raycism! and hate that is running rampant in America. What's that? BLM? Antifa? Nothing to see, move along.

822 Unlike many schools in Atlanta area, our school is giving in-school option (imagine that even being an option in a normal world) but with masks required at all times, and a host of other restrictions. Can't wait to what happens when the unruly 20% that the teachers already can't control refuse to comply. They will not be able to turn their heads like they usually do because diversity and fairness and will be forced to send them home. Then parents screaming at the school about racism. This is going to be fun to watch.

I'm not a believer in the horrors of wuflu. But I do not want to the grandsons to have to endure masks and isolation. They're better climbing all over each other here and being able to sit by me and read. Keeping the little ones 6ft away from others is cruel and stupid.

I worry more about far left teachers and leftist hatreds.

I volunteered to take them.

I also found out that some parents are renting spaces for educational pods where the kids can do virtual ed in a group setting and supervision will be provided without idiotic restrictions.

It is a close call but my kids are playing too many video games and bored with many parents still keeping their kids isolated. They need some social contact. Screw the leftist teachers,I'm not hesitating to criticize them this year when they start their propaganda.

Lasers don't have to be high powered to blind people, and it's unlikely a portable battery-powered one would be anyway.

Insty had an interesting item yesterday that BLM, Inc filed paperwork changing their ownership to the Tides Foundation, in case anyone had any doubts what the nexus of leftism was.

I think so. I don't remember the specifics but I don't think it even had 150hp. Which would be fine if the car was light like a Lotus. Not so much when it's a porker.

Not really true.
1. Eye safe is 5 mw power output
2. In 10 sec of searching, I found a 100 mw laser pointers that run on a pair of AAA batteries. Cost $20. Same source has 200 mw laser pointers at 2 for $50. Also runs on 2 x AAA batteries.
3. At that 100 mw power output, the eye damage range is around 200 ft. Around 350 ft for the 200 mw models.
4. Oh, it's a blue-purple color. Blink response can save your eyes if the color it red or green. But not if the color is blue or purple.

Those things should be classed as deadly force (grievous bodily harm inflicted). Good piece of kit to mount on a rifle. Check your boresight daily, though,
