Tonight's ONT Has Come Here To Chew Bubblegum And Kick Ass

Well crap. I sat down to write the ONT and got sucked into Ace's sidebar link on Logan's Run. I wish there was some place I could go to get away from the demands of writing ONTs. Some kind of.....sanctuary.

Fun fact: Sometimes my wife and I greet each other in the mornings “Mornin' Sam”, “Mornin' Ralph”. Which one of us is Sam and which one is Ralph varies.

Truth Is, Biden Never Had a Firm Grip on Reality

I like the way Derek puts it: “the sentences were mostly filled with lies woven together to inflate the ego of a wildly insecure, yet curiously narcissistic man”. Wildly insecure yet curiously narcissistic kinda says it all. Forget dementia, I don't know how anyone could imagine that Joe at the top of his faculties would make a good president.

26 Wildly insecure yet curiously narcissistic kinda says it all.

Narcissists, according to what I've read, do tend to be insecure. That's why they need to be the center of attention. That's why they have such a need to only be viewed in a positive light. Look at the multiple times that Biden has gone off on potential voters at his democrat events. It's usually because they disagree with him on an issue. He can't handle it.

Saying "you don't know shit", and jabbing his finger at a young guy in an auto plant, saying "look, fat" to some voter, challenging some guy to push ups, this is not an emotionally secure person. This is the behavior of someone who, deep down, knows that he is incompetent. I once had a boss like that.

Posted by: nerdygirl at August 13, 2020 10:10 PM (+lVUW)

27 That sandwich pic reminds me of a coworker who brought a watermelon cut in half crosswise, filled with fruit salad, to a work potluck. It laid there on its side, fruit spilling out, when the big boss walked in, took one look, and asked brightly, "Who brought the fruit salad?" You could tell she was thinking, "Note to self, do not promote this person."

No stupider than Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), which holds that a government can hugely increase government spending, simply by printing money, without serious consequences.

Born in the US so natural born citizen regardless of parent's status. (I actually think this is something that applies to Michelle Malkin too doesn't it.) Should it be that way? No, but until the government actually does something about it (they won't) that will be the natural born citizen requirement.

101 Ok, I didn't even read the content tonight, I am pissed off! I had a medical issue about a week ago, today was my referral appointment with a Urologist, I have some kidney troubles. I was the only female in the waiting room full of geriatric men on their walkers who have problems giving a urine sample. My doctor is a total asshole. Since I answered honestly on the questionnaire that I have in fact used recreational drugs he entered the room and referred to me as a pothead, he then proceeded to disparage President Trump. I went right back at him, who the fuck does he think he is!! Now I am waiting for further instructions regarding a cat scan etc., I am going to request a new doctor, he is a jerk. Thanks for listening Horde, I feel better already.

181 Things may get interesting in Portland - the Oregon State Police, who had been guarding the Federal courthouse, and providing backup to Portland cops generally, are leaving Portland in protest of the DA's refusal to prosecute any rioters. (Interesting that the governor is allowing the OSP to do this.)

Pretty blistering comment from OSP:

"Last night was our last night in Portland," said the Oregon State Police spokesperson. OSP is removing troopers from protecting federal courthouse and returning "resources back to counties where prosecution of criminal conduct is still a priority."

We already know that Portland cops have been ordered to not protect the courthouse, so I guess we're back to the Feds protecting it.

For three generations now, the Grifters have build and refined the Graft Machine. Everyone gets to dip their beak, and also let in their favored friends and family, to dip their beak. Just don't rock the boat, and every one gets paid.


Trump is his own man, not bought off like DC politicians, or the Deep State career Fed Gov workers, and is happy to tear the dishonest system down to the ground.

The Grifters are pushing back. And being helped by their Grifter friends in the Corporate Press Machine. Leaks, lies, falsehoods, mis-direction, and censorship.

She's actually mostly right. She's glossed over the fact that the only reason the money has any value is because we exchange it for all the stuff that matters to us.

The only purpose of taxation at the federal level is to offset federal spending (because the government doesn't do anything of value, any deficit spending necessarily causes inflation to make up the difference). It's nuts, but as long as the currency isn't backed by anything real (and it doesn't have to be gold, or even one particular thing), that's the system we have.

Anyway, he and his wife live in Davenport, IA and he urged me to job hunt there. He loves living there and praised the low cost of living, the restaurants, the feel of the place.

I have never been there. The first thing I think of when I think of living on the banks of the Mississippi - is floods. And I wasn't really considering moving to a city, although Davenport isn't a very big one. I was looking at moving to Northern Wisconsin, but I'm not finding a lot of jobs I can apply to.

On the plus side, it sounds much saner than Milwaukee - and Wisconsin. I'd know my cousin and his wife and I'd rather talk to those two than my closer relatives these days. It's a 3 and a half hour drive from here so I could still make it back for holidays.

I'm getting all my medical checkups taken care of and so a month ago I called to make an appointment with my OB/GYN and found out she's retired. Well, I used to work at that hospital and named a few other docs I really liked and found they were booked until November and December. I just needed a routine pap done and so ended up with a new doctor on staff that I knew nothing about - but she could fit me in right away because she's still building a practice.

So I show up for my appointment and she has a BLM pin attached to her white coat. Believe me, in that particular ultra lib area, it will not hurt her to virtue-signal - but I'm not going to her again.

It is my understanding from a nurse friend that I can more anonymously give him a bad review via a Yelp-type thing for the medical field, he currently sports a 2.6 star rating. I think I can break him down to a 1.7 with a concerted effort.

I am a functionalist, not someone who cares about form.

The purpose of a sandwich is to convey meat and possibly cheese and onions and maybe lettuce or a bit of sauerkraut to your mouth from your plate by hand in eatable form without getting your fingers all covered in mayonnaise.

As presented, that is a piss poor sandwich

I know someone who lived there years ago. Nice town. Good food: if you like pork and corn! I ate in a good Italian place there (sausage!). You can boat on the river: it's not gonna flood there, insofar as I know. You will shovel snow. It was too cold for my friend and he headed south for that reason, but not for many years. Nearest big city is Chicago. Iowa State is a nice lil college town an hour or so away, if you like that for an outing. Didn't meet anyone who wasn't nice. A lot of German surnames. I don't remember anything else.

You laugh at that "the govt. funds the taxpayers so they can pay taxes" shit. But that is just a somewhat mixed-up, corrupted simplistic version of something dubbed Modern Monetary Theory. The idea is basically the govt can print/create all the money everyone needs and there will no negative consequences.

This is being taught, and is actually subscribed to in various lefty circles (and even some non-lefty anti-Fed variations). Paul Krugman even called it "an interesting idea". He didn't endorse it, but threw it that little sop.

405 Could Flooring Every Car on the Planet Speed Up the Earth's Rotation?
------------

They could have saved some complex stuff by just assuming an average linear acceleration by the cars, rather than the very iffy numbers associated with assumed torque and multiplication.

More to the point, typically reverse gear is lower than 1st gear, and thus it would be advantageous to point the cars east, and conduct the (theoretical) experiment with the cars in reverse.

I am wondering where they came up with the torque multiplication number of 12.6.? I expect a typical 1st gear to run around 3:1...at any rate between 3:1 an 3.5:1.

Typical differential gear ratio of ~3:1, many, I expect around 2.5:1

That gives a total drive ratio of ~9:1.

But, more to the point, unless the cars are miraculously tethered to some fixed point off of the earth, then the torque at the wheels will result in acceleration of the mass of the vehicle, as well as to the earth's surface.

I rate the article: Not Science.

I have the feeling that I should have read upthread before writing this.

No local Popeye's, maybe 10 miles away.

There is a Church's, but only marginally better than KFC.

And there is a new Chic-Fil-A, north of me about 10 miles, and about 7 miles south.

But after they went SJW, so not worth the drive, and only sandwiches and strips, no bucket of legs and thighs.

Oh, and there is an Ezell's, a local Seattle place with about a half dozen stores around the greater Seattle area. It became famous about 30 years ago, when Oprah announced on TV it was her favorite. Local black ownership had something to do with it, I'm sure.

I've had Ezell's (about 20 years or so ago, before Oprah). It was locally popular. I don't remember anything about the cost, but it had too much garlic in the batter.

I only ever ate at the original restaurant. Although they opened a location in my former neighborhood (West Seattle/White Center/Burien), it didn't last long. First it was a Wendy's, then Ezell's, then a Peruvian (?!?) restaurant. Now a parking lot. Or maybe the apartment building next to the parking lot. Who knows. Time marches on.

The only two times I have bought sets of things at GREAT prices from Amazon, they were advertised pre-publication, then they had a bunch of delays and emailed me asking me if I wanted to cancel. I said no, and eventually they shipped at the super cheap price. I am guessing sometimes they do it for promo. But I got both deals at steals.

If you remember, a couple of weeks ago, I was bitching one night about the latest Windows 10 version, 2004. I was getting BSODs and thought it was that.

Well, it wasn't. It was a failing memory stick, near as I can figure. Or maybe a flaky stick, I should say. The problem got worse. I have two installs of windows on this machine, and I tried to do another clean install, and started getting crazy errors.

Then disk corruption galore and all sorts of BSODs. Memory corruption would explain all of that, and I got into the BIOS and slowed the memory down a good bit. This mo/bo is OCing one and you get down in it and tweak and adjust just about everything. There are a couple of pages of nothing but memory timing parameters. I have no idea what 90% of it does, and wouldn't touch it.

Anyway, that improved things. Not quite as unstable, but still BSODing and failing to do shit.

This evening, I popped in some new memory sticks and everything is running fine.

521 From the 6 million dollar man thread: Northrup worked his entire life trying to make a flying wing aircraft work, and had some stunning designs. None of them worked. They could fly but were very unstable and extremely difficult to control.

It wasn't until fly by wire and computer assistance allowed the stealth jets to fly as a wing (which also made them designable for extreme radar cloaking) that his idea finally worked. Basically no human could make it fly.

He crashed a lot of planes trying though. Well, pilots did. He designed them and let others try

There are some problems with 2004, and MS hasn't fixed them all yet. They've put a hold on machines with known configurations that trigger the known bugs, at least for Windows Update. If your machine offers it via Windows Update, you're not on the problem list.

Microsoft's testing process is pretty much broken. There have been several incidents of late where they failed to detect some pretty bad bugs (one which would delete user data files!).

They've got this "Insider Program" where many people try out the betas and preview releases, yet with all that, they miss it. In most of the cases, they received bug reports of the above bad bugs, but failed to act on them.

542 and so is the entire Anglican priesthood. Is this not right?

The pope is a mess, but Anglicans vary significantly. It used to be, and may still be, unofficial policy of churches to be sent alternating more radical and more conservative clergy. In the Anglican Church, its very top-down, they don't choose their minister. When one goes, then the church rulers choose the replacement.

There's still good clergy in the church, but fewer every year as the entire denomination moves more and more away from Christ and toward the world and its ruler.

Outside England, however, the Anglican church can be very strongly Biblical, oddly enough especially in places like Africa.

I can't speak much about Roman Catholics except that the pope really does appear to be a nominal Christian and hard left radical idiot.

Even if you don't dig the charismatic thing, you won't have to worry about alphabet soup priestesses.

I'm not southern, the closest I come is my dad was born in a little town called Brookfield Missouri. But the Dixie does not refer to the Confederacy or slavery, its a geographical designation, like Mississippi Valley or Florida Peninsula. Dixie is south of the Mason/Dixon line, its not a cultural or historical designation from any specific time period.

For God's sake, they just renamed a bird that was named after a Confederate General. Why the hell was that necessary??? This is beyond absurd.

559 Most of the distinctive flavor of season salt comes from the celery salt in it. The other stuff adds to it, but that's what gives season salt its particular zing. Its great stuff but a little goes a long ways and you can tire of it pretty fast if its overused.

A few of the prominent C19 independent commentators and observers (with various backgrounds, I think including virologists/epidemiologists, but haven't checked thoroughly, and list is growing) have teamed up to do a website - rationalground.com.

Haven't even looked at it yet. Hope it will aggregate best/newest info, for now once must check the trap-line with the various people, follow their links, etc.

So cancel alarm, arm it again. Drag Snobol outside and lock door behind me.

Don't know if Levitt will join up with them. Nobel Prize biologist who (summarized) based on Stockholm and Diamond Princess thinks herd immunity threshold for C19 quite low, possible 20% or less.

But the most interesting thing he's said (to me), so far (others have also hypothesized low HIT, with lots of evidence), was in an interview (I think on unherd.com - another site worth checking). He said that, typical for a real scientist, he had put his calculations and hypothesis out for colleagues/others to evaluate, attack, challenge, correct, etc.

First responses he got, from prominent people?

"You shouldn't say that". He was stunned and appalled. Rightly - as this was a pristinely un-scientific response.

609 Well, I took my busted air brake valve into the heavy-duty truck shop today. It was indeed a "quick-release valve", and they had a suitable replacement, made by Bendix. Only difference is that the outlet ports were one size larger. A pair of 3/8 - 1/4 pipe thread reducing bushings takes care of that.

Valve and stop light switch together cost about $60. And I measured up the two old air tanks, and they came in at about 5.5 gallons each. I happen to have an old tank for a roll-around portable compressor, and it measured up to be exactly 11.2 gallons (probably closer to 12, because I neglected the volume of the domed ends). There is room in the left rear corner of the engine room to mount this tank in a vertical position, out of the weather, and away from road splash from the rear wheel, so that's what I will do. It needs one more bung welded into it, so when I cut the hole for that, I will look inside with my little video bore scope, and if it is rusty inside, I will discard it in favor of a new tank. Outside, it looks simply perfect, no rust at all.

Today I fixed the AC on the Subaru...sort of. The problem was the compressor started cycling off for extended periods when it got hot, the problem was the air gap between the pressure plate and magnet was too large (which as I later found out is a common Subaru problem). The fix was to remove the pressure plate and take out shims until the gap was less than 0.45mm. Now the problem is it is always on, even when the switch is off. It works fine otherwise, and I'd rather have it on when I don't want it than off when I do so I'm good with it.

I also changed a fill valve in one of the toilets, it was making a high pitched squealing noise. So that's two things. And now I think I deserve a beer or three.

One tank, the inlet side, on the Flx had some rusty sludge in it; the other was dry. Those tanks appear to be OK. When I took them out, I tapped all over them with the pick end of a welder's chipping hammer, and did not discover any soft spots. If I had to reuse them, i would do so without any qualms. But since I can change to a single vertical tank, mounted inside, I will.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at August 14, 2020 01:58 AM (29jSH)


It doesn't, the system works normally, compressor cycles on and off and everything (the problem before, with the clutch, was the air gap was too large when everything heated up for the magnet to catch the pressure plate, so when the compressor cycled the clutch wouldn't re-engage). The problem now is that somewhere (I think in the control panel) there is a switch shorted that tells the AC system to always be on, even when the switches are off. Other than that, it works great. If it gets to bothering me overly much I'll pull the dash apart and see if it turns off when I unplug the control panel, if not I know to look into the wiring harness instead.

629 Cutting onions.
One of my dad's best friends decided to become a foster parent. It lasted a day. He came home to find 1 kid screaming out the newly broken front window, the kid's brother trying to kick in a bedroom closet door, and his own twin girls beaten and bruised and holding the closet door closed from inside.
The man was a school guidance counselor, an avid outdoorsman, and just about the nicest guy you ever met. The foster kids went back that day, because nether the man nor his wife wanted their girls killed.
The agency knew his background and gave him totally broken kids from a nightmare home. If he had known about that, he probably could have prepared for it and helped heal them. The agency was afraid he wouldn't say yes, so they just let it be a surprise.
Frank talk about the deal in the teachers' lounge got eavesdropped on, and then blown up into juicy gossip around town that the foster agency was sending out monsters that not even the best trained school employees could handle. It basically shut down fostering in the town for a decade.

Yep, this one does, too. So it's either the defrost switch or the AC switch, I'm suspecting the defrost switch because turning the fan all the way to off is also supposed to cut the power and it doesn't. The AC switch light goes out, but the system stays on. I have swapped relays so I know it's not a stuck relay (plus the aux radiator fan stays on). If it isn't the control panel it might be the computer (not sure if it runs through there on an 03 Subaru Baja), if that's the case the damn thing will stay broke and I'll pull the relay if I absolutely have to have it off.

660 Foster care

Its no picnic, even in a top notch private church-run agency.

Many foster parents adopted their charges, just to keep them away from their birth mothers, the 'mostly peaceful' junkies [yes. if the foo shits, wear it.] visiting Rikers Island for a spell.

the 'usual suspects' came roaring in, screaming ....wait for it,,,,RACIALISTS!

This new foster parent was given an infant who is an hermaphrodite.
She spent years taking the child to chromosome therapy and other medical care. The stipend barely kept the child in nappies.
The screamers demanded she take the child on parental visits to her non compos mentis mother in Rikers.

The 'usual suspects' were gobsmacked to find themselves on the receiving end of the SCREAMING.

There's apparently little, legally, that can be done about the attack. EGLE reached out to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to see how it could take legal action against the eagle. A spokesperson said the agency has no mechanism or authority to issue corrective action notices against wildlife.
"Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do," the spokesman said. "Nature is a cruel and unforgiving mistress."

696 How Biden holds the phone is the least of his concerns; depending on the quality and placement of the speakers, sometimes one has to hold a smart phone at a particular angle to hear speech clearly.

The real problem is that the whole bit is so contrived it stinks. It's obviously staged. I'd go so far as to speculate that they consciously tried to make it sound much better than it actually was.

You think political leadership would have learned from candidates like Felonia Von Pantsuit, who never under any circumstances came off as natural, to the point where attempts to make her seem like everybody else were such failures.

You'd think they'd be looking for folks who are genuine to head their tickets. But you'd be wrong.

Instead, campaign strategists simply settle for trying to make a silk purse from a sow's ear. I wasn't paying much attention when the SCOAMF burst on to the scene, but after hearing so many rave about what a polished speaker he was, I was flabbergasted to find out he was nothing of the kind, even when he had practiced his speech extensively. To my mind, he wasn't even convincing as a reader of words off a teleprompter. And when he had to speak off the cuff, he was a disaster.

Let me know when the subway/bus fare will be based upon actual cost and not the subsidized current $2.75. The real price of a ride is somewhere around $10.00, if not more, what with operating costs (including new equipment), maintenance costs, payroll and pensions. But no NY politician has the balls to make the fare commensurate with the actual cost. Why should any other state/citizen pay for the subsidizing of NYC's bus and subway system?

And when the wet fart of an announcement happens it will be " well they said it wasn't going to be a major announcement so why were you expecting much."

This is why I've given up being one of the twelve to fifteen people in the United States who still worries about our debt and deficit. Quote:

"U.S. Postal Service to award $6.3B contract for new mail truck this year. See the finalists"

$3.6B to design a vehicle that already exists and that the big three already make.

Chevy makes a van. Ford makes a van. Chrysler makes a van. I'm fairly certain every one of them already makes a sh*tload of different small SUVs, and at least one of them makes a work vehicle that has been readily adopted FOR THIS EXACT ROLE by small business owners all around the nation (Ford Transit). But f*ck it, let's spend $3.6B and make a different Ford Transit.

I wonder how long $3.6B would last in buying and maintaining a fleet of Transits for the Post Office?

3.6 billion is a lot of money, I'm sure a good portion of it will end up in the pockets of the connected and some of it will be used as walking around money, and then to your point, one of the car companies will take one of its existing SUVs or vans, convert them to right hand drive and slap a premium price tag on it and stick the taxpayers with a massive bill.

At the end of 2019, the GAO calculated that the Postal Service had $160.9 billion in debt

UPS Market Cap $135 B
Fedex Market Cap $50 B

If you liquidated both of them you could pay off the USPS debt. Of course you would have to steal the value from the shareholders but it would not be the first time the government ripped people off.

We'll be saving money in the long run when we end welfare, affirmative action, college scholarships, etc. to their families. But they've got to leave and refuse any future services or citizenship for their bloodline as part of the conditions of cashing the check.

Go look at the entry requirements. SAT/ACT/GPA

Now go look at some local podunk sh*tkicker college within an hour of any and everyone here. Doesn't matter. Any four year school.

Amazon should operate its own fleet and trucks and deliver their own damn packages.

Posted by: vivi at August 14, 2020 06:46 AM

They do. At least in my area (SE Michigan). Though I imagine they do that all over the country.

Probably not for every single package. I know I have had Amazon packages delivered by USPS, UPS, FedEx and Amazon.

But Amazon does have a fleet of trucks and makes a lot of deliveries.

Pretty nice too, because they also have a tracking service where you can see where your package is on a map and then after they deliver the package to your door, they take a picture of the package on your doorstep to send you confirmation that the package has been delivered.

Funny, I seem to remember the collateral damage of the two previous administrations is in getting involved in expensive and endless wars with the Middle East nations, without any plan, any definition of what winning looks like, or an exit plan. Just occupy and keep a level of distrust and chaos continuing.

Some of the highlights of the previous administrations include: Al Qaeda, ISIS, Benghazi, the fall of Libya, Egyptian Civil War, Syria, Yemen going up in flames, Iran kidnapping American soldiers, dropping off billions of unmarked cash to terrorist nations, daily Palestinian terror, massive expansion in the human trafficking and drug cultivation and trade...
