FEELING GROOVY – IN THE 1940s

How Early Did The Word “Groovy” Appear In Movies?

NFL IS RE-EMBRACING SEXUAL ASSAULT

NFL to honor violent sexual offenders by putting their names on helmets

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, players may display the names of victims of police violence and/or systemic racism on the padding along the bottom of the backs of their helmets.

Drew Brees has chosen to honor alleged rapist Jacob Blake on his helmet.

For a while the league was struggling with an image problem, because it had numerous players who had beaten and assaulted women. Apparently “Me Too” is now yesterday’s news, so the NFL has decided to fully embrace battery and sexual assault.

PATRIOTIC YOUNG SINGERS

In last Saturday’s Overnight Thread I mentioned that this country is ready for some patriotic popular music to counter the left-wing hatred of America. Mrs. Throckmorton suggested I check out an a capella singing group named Anthem Lights – four young men who do some beautiful harmonizing on traditional patriotic and religious songs. They’re good.

America The Beautiful

My Country ‘Tis Of Thee

THERE’S STILL TIME FOR THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER

Gas cans that can’t pour without spilling may be the most despised federal regulation imposed on Americans since the 55-mph federal speed limit. Across racial and income demographics, anyone who uses a gas can loathes these abominations and curses the scientifically illiterate bureaucrats who outlawed functioning gas cans.

This post got picked up by Instapundit and many other blogs, but I guess it didn’t make it to the President. I know there are folks in the President’s orbit who read Ace of Spades. All we need is 5 minutes of the President’s time to issue an Executive Order to restore functioning gas cans. Mr. President – you will be a hero to so many millions if you give us back our freedom to buy functioning gas cans.

(Remember – if you hit that link, you may not comment on old AOS threads.)

WORST DATES

We’ve all been there. You’re not even 30 minutes into a date, and you realize that not only will you not want a second date, but the next several hours are going to be excruciating.

Or worse, the date that takes a really bizarre turn at some point. Alcohol is often involved.

The most torturous is the all-weekend date that you realize was a horrible mistake, and you crave nothing more intensely than for that person to go home.

I’m guessing the horde has some real doozies. Any awful dating stories you want to share?

INSTITUTIONAL RACISM

*****

PEACE – NOT A “PEACE PROCESS”

It’s weird, but all the previous Mideast “Peace Processes” seemed to only result in western dollars flowing to Arab politicians and terrorists, who then used the money to line their pockets and to murder Jews. Of course, none of the western politicians and diplomats actually wanted peace, they just wanted endless Israeli concessions, with payoffs to their Arab terrorist friends, and a steady river of spilled Jewish blood. That is what the “peace process” was. When President Trump finally moved the US Embassy to Jerusalem, the “experts” all warned of the awful events he was unleashing.

Jerusalem Embassy.JPG

And the events he unleashed are indeed awful to those who wish harm to Israel – because peace is breaking out all over the Mideast. Thanks to Trump, there is no money now to be gained from killing Jews or bashing Israel.

And just like that – Arab nations now want to make peace with Israel. Weird. First the UAE established diplomatic relations.

Flags - UAE and Israel.JPG

Now Saudi Arabia is warming up to Israel.

But the kingdom has already cultivated covert ties with Israel in recent years, a shift spearheaded by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman even as his father King Salman has voiced steadfast support for an independent Palestinian state.

A shared animosity toward Iran, along with Saudi attempts to attract foreign investment to fund Prince Mohammed’s ambitious Vision 2030 economic diversification plan, appear to be pushing the kingdom closer to Israel than ever.

But what about the Palestinians?

Like the UAE’s move, such a step would be seen by Palestinians and their supporters as a betrayal of their cause.

The Palestinians were offered a state of their own, but they refused it. Time has finally run out on their corrupt peace process gambit.

BUCK THOUGHTS

An organization that seeks to develop its employees by pushing them to “escape their comfort zones” will soon learn which of its managers are sadists who thrive on making employees uncomfortable.

MEAN JOE GREENE – HAVE A COKE AND A SMILE

THROCKMORTON’S FIRST LAW OF LIVE MUSIC: IF THERE’S AN UPRIGHT BASS IN THE BAND, IT’S PROBABLY GOING TO BE GOOD

Robert Earl Keen dabbles in pretty much all types of country music – except for the kind found on country music radio stations. Fortunately, his music has received lots of airplay on Americana, College, Public, and Red Dirt radio stations. He’s a great storyteller and puts on a very entertaining show if you’re lucky enough to catch him when he comes through your town.

45 "I'm guessing the horde has some real doozies. Any awful dating stories you want to share?"

In high school, i had a job at the new orleans canal street marriott as an apprentice air conditioning and boiler repairman.

Had a 20 hour work week for both of my junior and senior years as well as a 40 hour work week over the summers beginning at the end of 10th grade and ending the fall after graduation when i joined the Army.

I had good cash flow, and spent my spare time in the quarter partying. I got lots of little Bewalskies running around the hinterlands from lonely, freshly divorced 30 something ladies on vacation in the quarter. Couldnt begin to count them, don't want to either.

Having to download old drivers and stuff, and dealing with a Mac deemed "old" by Apple. Plus, [snipped].

Sorry, had to vent for a bit. Won't happen again in the foreseeable future. Thank you for your indulgence.

48 Any awful dating stories you want to share?

1. It's REALLY not going to go well when she says...as her MUCH OLDER former boyfriend walks into the bar she deliberately brought me to..."Whatever happens next just play along."

2. And then there was the VP from a very recognizable commercial name who a) began to expose her boobs to me at a restaurant on our first date and b) had a nervous breakdown when she could not find her spare toothbrush.

I could go on. The era between the two Mrs. Circas was fit material for a multiple play Shakespearean tragicomedy.

70 UK and BoJo continue to circle the drain. Johnson has said there will be "Covid Marshalls" to enforce (completely scientifically baseless, and irrelevant in any case) bans on gatherings.

This week.

As the epidemic is clearly well into the long declining tail of its Gompertz distribution. And after (unlike the US) senior officials have openly discussed the mistake of trying the radical "lockdown" experiment instead of sticking with the original, well-founded strategy, similar to Sweden's of not trying to make water run up-hill.

86 First, let me self-identify as a proud snow-blowing American...

Secondly, what the actual bloody hell is wrong with the "new" fuel can spouts?? They don't spill on me! They don't even need any minding whilst topping off the snow-blower, lawn mower, weed whacker, boat motor tank, etc.! One just hooks the spout over the end of filler neck and, get this, when the tank is full, the fuel stops flowing all by itself! Not a drop of fuel is wasted! The vent is inside the spout! -- Genius!

Are you sure you're using it correctly? I mean, you simply can't be if it's spilling...

116 Yes, Robert Earl is great and somewhat underappreciated. He was at Texas AM with Lyle Lovett, late 1970's. "The Front Porch Song" was about them playing music together at an off campus rent house. Lots of stories of pick up gigs in the town bars. Not sure how many are true...but told by school mates. They still play together on occasion and have remained friends. The OSL mobile has a The Road Goes on Forever and the Party Never Ends sticker on the tailgate. Because it does.

I was involved in a LARPing thing ages ago and one of the hotter gals flirted with me every time we crossed paths, at one point commenting on the weather "Gee I better get out of the rain before this dress gets too sheer" and then making no hurry to find cover. I asked her out for the next weekend.

Five minutes into the date, we had discussed the etymology of the word "fuck" and covered the fact that her apparently not quite ex had left a ring in her mailbox that afternoon. Something in my brain broke and I just could not make conversation throughout dinner (which I can't much explain, it was like I'd never talked to a girl before).

So yeah. Got home and drank.

140 Groovy goes back to the early 20th century, by musicians who got together to jam and hangout. If a certain song was considered worthy of recording onto a vinyl record, it was cut into the record, or "Grooved". Musicians then referred to good music having "groove" meaning it should be recorded. Hence the word Groovy came from that.

170 My last gf was a psycho, but I loved her and she lived with me for 20 years. Among her many weird-outs: panic attacks. Last attack was so bad, she ... begged me to shoot her! Called 911. Ambulance took her to ER. Sitting there with her, recovered, I said "You'd feel really stupid right now if I had shot you." Kicked her out two days later. Done with women for good now. Risk/Return ratio all out of whack.

243 The bad "date", long, long ago: met a guy in a band playing in Norman, OK. Talked, bought me a drink, exchanged phone numbers, I was w friends and left, but interest on both sides. He called a few times, but never in the same neighborhood, until he invited me to a NYE event he was playing in TX. Decided to go w two gf, we got there...and my rocker had morphed into this rude, obese guy who looked and acted nothing like the guy I met the previous year. He had "plans" for us later that evening that I knew weren't going to happen. My friends and I stayed until near to bar close (it was NYE) and then snuck away, jumped in my Honda Civic, drove straight back to OK. Never heard from him again.

So I really like Bobby and to make sure he knows I let him see me looking at him for two whole seconds! Was I being too forward?!?

I'm driving our daughter back from CA to the East Coast some years ago. She tells me, "I think that I need to take some time away from going out with guys to figure out what I really need."

"Sounds like a plan," I said.

The very next day after we get back to here she's out 'til all hours with some local goofus who had sent her flowers back at the start of the new year.

Color me unsurprised. Long range planning for her is figuring out what she might do next week.

If they say yes they are almost certainly interested in you. If they say no, just say "well maybe some other time" and either they'll follow up with you....or they won't.

264 Ladyl, thankfully it's not hard.
Look for a jar of diced chipotles in adobo sauce. If you can't find the diced version in a jar, just get a small tin of whole chipotles, then run it through your food processor. Then make your favorite steak-- rubbed with some other spices, if you prefer. When it's done, top it with the peppers/adobo concoction and you're there. :-)

Think you'll like. The smokiness of chipotle especially meshes well with beef IMHO.

He said he didn't mind her pulling a gun in the middle of the night, he understood that. The problem, he said, was that after all the lights came on she kept the gun trained on him way too long, and he could see the calculations going on in her head.

294 Because I have little else but my word to recommend myself, I would like to note that since it became clear that Biden was going to stay the frontrunner in February/March, I have been resolute on three points:

A. Despite every rumor and supposition to the contrary, and yes, all logic and reason, the Democrats are going to ride the broken down Biden horse charade all the way to the end, with zero intention of relinquishing because this is what they are

B. Biden is going to run as mini-Trump. Which is ALWAYS a losing campaign - people will choose the real deal to a pale imitation every time (Sure, Democrats *always* steal from the Republican, but this strategy is becoming more obvious by the day)

C. Trump was going to win 2020 no matter who they ran, and what campaign they ran against him. When this is all over, and Biden is a burned out husk that still managed 45 or more percent of the true vote, many - even on our own side - will claim Trump won because Biden was a "terrible candidate", which is a shame because Trump is a once in a 100 year talent

The funny thing is that on one occasion we went out for a movie with other friends of ours, and it was to see a movie I had heard about through the grapevine but I did not know very much about at all. But I went to the movie because of a girl, and maybe, just MAYBE, she would talk about a topic not related to The Rocky Horror Picture Show (her entire life revolved around this movie. This should have been a major warning.)
The movie in question would go on to be one of my very favorites of all time: PULP FICTION.

She was dumb and as deep a a kiddie pool...but there's that at least. I can hang my hat on running into one of my favorite movies of all time, in a theater. So there's that.

304 I am very happy that PDT and Jared Kushner have accomplished the impossible -- getting the Arabs to come to their senses. The Arabs are between a rock and a hard spot. It isn't just religious issues between the mostly Sunni Arabs and mostly Shia Iranians. There's a more fundamental issue at stake -- Arab vs. Persian. The enmity between the two goes beyond mere religion. It's personal in a way we here in the West do not fully comprehend.

I think the Arabs realized from the git-go that Oblahblah was going to stab them in the back. They were willing to cooperate with Bush, Sr, less so with Bush, Jr. But Oblahblah was ready, willing, and able to sell them out to the Persians. With ValJar pulling the strings behind the scenes, it could go no other way. For eight long years, the Arabs felt the Persian noose tightening around their necks.

I suspect a second motive behind the Arabs' sudden burst of rationality; Trump took oil out of the equation. By encouraging the exploitation of American resources, Trump has broken the Arab chokehold on the world's economy. You can see that in MBS's determination to diversify Saudi Arabia's economy. (I said from the beginning that instead of invading Afghanistan, we should have launched a Manhattan Project style effort to create synthetic oil. The House of Saud would have coughed up bin Laden and his entire operation on the spot.)

I do have a question, though: will the Arabs finally allow the so-called Palestinians living in their countries to integrate into their societies? For seventy-two years, the Arabs have kept the Palestinian "refugees" locked up in camps close to Israel's borders and have freely admitted to doing so to keep the Palestinians in a constant uproar. The "Palestinian question" was the perfect foil to explain why the average Arab was uneducated, poor, and had no prospects of bettering himself; the "dirty" Jews had robbed the Arabs of all these things. Apparently, the Arab League recently told the Palestinians to go away and shut up.

I wouldn't even do that. Emotional scars are a bitch, and despite what Hollywood would claim, legal papers can't make them go away. I'd set the limit as 1 year post divorce, minimum.

So I really like Bobby and to make sure he knows I let him see me looking at him for two whole seconds! Was I being too forward?!?

Women are so hard to read in that regard.

The dummy I cited above in #302 thought a great idea to indicate she liked me was to use my full first name. The problem is that everyone has used the short and long version of my first name interchangeably since ever and I do not notice when people do it. So it wasn't much of a hint.

Admittedly on another occasion (years ago now) when a woman asked me if I was single as we were doing laundry, that should have been obvious. But other times, not so much. And frustratingly, it's my job to figure this out, and apparently I just have to know if a woman is interested in me, because.

365 I do have a question, though: will the Arabs finally allow the so-called Palestinians living in their countries to integrate into their societies? For seventy-two years, the Arabs have kept the Palestinian "refugees" locked up in camps close to Israel's borders and have freely admitted to doing so to keep the Palestinians in a constant uproar."

You've provided a very good synopsis of the situation, Captain JS - yes, the enmity between the Persians and the Arabs is very old, they've wanted to kill each other every day for at least 1400 years now, and counting. The Founder of the House of Saud came to prominence in the 19th century came to prominence when he led a bunch of warriors across the desert to one of the Iranian Holy Cities, launched a Surprise Attack, and slaughtered every Ayatollah he and his men could find. Then they left, they didn't come for loot, they just came to murder the Shiite leadership.

To the Iranians, that might as well have happened yesterday.

as to the Palestinians - the real problem there is that the Wealthy Arabs (ie, the Gulf States) think of them as even lower than some people in the US think of uneducated illegal aliens here. They despise them, which makes it quite easy for them to be able to tell them to go get their shineboxes now.

Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at September 09, 2020 11:22 PM (0Yiin)

413 Look, Fat, here's the thing:

This is the nub of it, the nexus of the crisis. Let's leave aside the political power people (the P3); all they really care about is power and the exercise of it. I'm talking about the people who actually do want to live in a different world and not as the P3.

Have you ever seen people who are pro-communism admit or acknowledge (they are not quite the same word, so whichever fits better in your situation), admit or acknowledge that: 1) yes, the USSR/Maoist China/Venezuela/Romania/etc. were terrible places and examples of failed communism; or 2) of course they failed! They didn't have our resources/abilities/intelligence/desire, etc.; or 3) some other concession that it has never been done right followed by an express or implied "yet"? I have. Why saddle yourself and your ideology with the detritus of losers and axe holes who f*cked up your ideology? (It's not theirs to monopolize, after all!)

But have you ever heard any of them say, at any level of workable policy (as opposed to wokeable policy) how they would avoid the mistakes those countries made? Leave aside the bad/evil/sadistic communists. Let's assume Bernie doesn't have an inner Stalin, that he really does want to make sure everyone's got a Star Trek-style replicator. How is that going to happen? After all the attention-getting stuff (gulags, tyranny, mass murder, etc.), the thing I associate most with communism is food shortages. Everywhere. It seems kind of endemic to certain political philosophies.

It's not just food. Communist countries -- some communist countries -- have had the capacity to reach and maintain a certain standard of living that would probably be pegged at something like U.S. 1900 but with somewhat better medical services. (It's not as if there weren't *any* competent medical professionals behind the Iron Curtain; you're hardly more equal than other without a minimally-competent doctor on call.) Except for the food shortages. And the resources needed to keep everyone in line so they don't fall back to a system that will feed them and in U.S. 1946-style. Basically, they're poor, have long-outdated living standards, nothing gets built properly or safely, and population movements are generally out of, not into, these countries.

There's a Marxist concept of needing to go through capitalism before getting to socialism -- the two-stage theory. Not as a physical constraint -- throw a socialist coup and you've got socialism -- but as a political theory restraint -- it won't work if you don't first.... The problem is, the people saying we've had enough capitalism don't seem to understand why that first stage (capitalism) is there.

If you conceive of Marxism very narrowly, as a complaint that the first and second rungs of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs needs to be met by society/government since it's cruel not to (basically an issue of supply), then capitalism is the essential condition of socialism/communism (in their sense of being conceived of love and goodness) because capitalism is the only political (and concomitant economic system) that can take the world Marx lived in and enable it to provide everyone with sufficient food, clothing, shelter, educational, vocational, and medical opportunities because, over time, as technologies and processes improve, our ability to invent real Star Trek replicators increases. You know replicators -- give you anything you want at the push of a button, no money needed.

That's where the problem lies. Assuming you get to that stage of the first stage, you have to keep it going. Capitalism does not give birth to a perpetual motion cornucopia. If you don't maintain it, it'll fall apart and you'll be just another dystopian future plot line. It's one thing if someone says their political philosophy is we all suffer if there's not enough to go around without turning off that cornucopia, it's another if they don't want food and material shortages. In that case, then how are they going to manage something that's never been done before and which depends on the elimination of everything Adam Smith teaches us. Maybe what they really seek is something they've been blinded to? What the Left is doing is actually contrary to, and defeative of, socialism in the long run since it's going to destroy much of what capitalism has created and there will be no ability for it to be replaced.

423 "If a woman was ever interested in me, they sure didn't bother to let me know."

Many times, women think "I can't possibly let this guy know I like him because he might not like me, and I don't want to be humiliated and look like an ass."

And women of my generation were still conditioned to think guys should make the first move. So making the first move and being rejected seemed even worse to us.

Fear of rejection, fear of being humiliated - those are human feelings, not male or female ones. We are used to thinking the opposite sex holds all of the cards and we're the only emotionally vulnerable ones. But nobody wants to be hurt.

Sometimes a woman will bust her ass, give all she can and go for broke only to have a guy refuse to see what he is being offered and choose to wallow.

Then she's broken and has to pick herself up and bust her ass again to regain her self worth and confidence.


And the guy still doesn't get it.

------------------------------------
I have (had?) a female friend who is this, precisely. I've known her for years. She's recently separated, and the last time I saw her was...uncomfortable. She had something to prove (to herself) and I wandered into the crosshairs. Politely declined, lost a friend. Would do the same again.
As far as bad date stories, they all end up that way eventually. A while back, it suddenly dawned on me that every long-term relationship I've ever had, ended up with me getting cheated on. Every one. It's hard to get mad about, really - 25 years or so of the same thing happening to me every time, and it becomes hard to avoid the conclusion that it's not them, it's me.
But hey, that's cool. I'm older now and comfortable and set in my ways, and I like sitting around in my underpants and watching old Babylon 5 DVDs and fiddling with firearms and talking to the cat. I'm not a leper, and can find a date if and when I want one. I'm also self-aware enough to know that when I say I'm never going to fall for it again, I know that I actually almost certainly would, so I don't go looking for trouble.

Posted by: SFGoth at September 09, 2020 11:23 PM (KAi1n)

wow, that was quite a screed! You're right, of course. One of the best examples playing out in real time is Venezuela. Socialist countries survive by burning all the reserves of their society, until nothing is left. Then they collapse. Venezuela was one of the wealthiest countries in South America, with massive oil reserves. There's a very good chance that before the end of the year, Venezuelan oil exports (the only source of income for the country besides Cocaine) may actually fall to Zero. Yes, absolute Zero. They ran off all the major oil companies, they forced all the trained oilfield people to flee the country, their entire industry is being run by 19 year old soldados who's solution to any problem is to shoot it full of holes. You can guess how well that works in a refinery. Every refinery in the country is broken down and can't be fixed, every rig is broken down and they can't get parts, every piece of advanced machinery in the entire country is broken, and there's not a single person left in the country who knows how to fix any of it.

That's how communism ends - back to a bunch of ignorant savages living in grass huts next to the river.

Trump's second term is going to be magnificent. I think he's laid a lot of groundwork for it, and I also think he's held back a little for the election. Trump said over and over in 2016 he wanted to be the greatest president next to Lincoln. Which means he's not going to take it easy.

I'm with you.

I read these comments here about the Evilness of Women, and I think of my sister. Married 25 years to a husband she loved and thought she would grow old with. Then he had an affair with a 25 year old and knocked his gf up.

Sis called me crying on the phone every day for a year. Her world was falling apart. I was really worried about her. They had a 13 year old son who had to put up with these battles and scenes and had to accept the fact his dad had an affair and he was going to have two half-sisters (twins) born to the "homewrecker" and dad didn't care because the most important thing to him was not his family but young pussy.

They got divorced, and my sister got married again - to a terrific man with all sorts of health problems who died 3 years ago. He was like a brother to me and I miss him terribly.

My ex-BIL never married his old girlfriend, much to her disappointment. (He tries to be a decent dad to the twins though.) The old GF has now decided she's a lesbian and lives with another woman.

But, yeah, tell me how evil women are, Insom. Always taking advantage of men.

Ask me about my dad who walked out on my mom after 25 years of marriage, and right after I graduated high school. He even once told my mom, the only way he'd stay in the marriage if is HE COULD KEEP SLEEPING WITH OTHER WOMEN.

Today both my sisters hate him, and I never had a very good relationship with him and can't decide if I ever want to see him again. (He just turned 82, none of us are allowed by his 'new family' to know anything about him, and I doubt he'll be around that much longer.)

531 Wow, Tolkein despised the Big Rat?

https://tinyurl.com/y45jqoao

Tolkien wrote The Hobbit for young people, but he did not write it as a "children's book." Nothing in the book panders, not the language, nor the complex characterization, nor the grown-up themes. Disney's works, on the other hand, represented to Tolkien a cheapening of ancient cultural artifacts, and he seemed to think that Disney's approach to films for children was especially condescending and cynical.

He described Disney's work on the whole as "vulgar" and the man himself, in a 1964 letter, as "simply a cheat," who is "hopelessly corrupted" by profit-seeking (though he admits he is "not innocent of the profit-motive" himself).

533 AoS is loading for me again, but menwhile I wrote up my "best" date story. Settle back, this will take a few words to tell aright.


Set the wayback machine to the late 1960s, Sherman.

And tonight's episode is brought to you by the word, "Unbeknownst."


We had recently moved from Smallville to Bigtown. I knew nobody and the girls at school didn't seem... interested.

In church, of all places, I re-met a real nice girl I'd known (and had a kid-size crush on) in grade school. Called her up for a date. She was so sweet, as she told me that, unbeknownst to her parents, she was married! *siigh*

But, she said, she knew a girl I might ask out. We'll call this girl "Icy." (That's called foreshadowing.) I called Icy up for a date, and she agreed, but only if we double-date with her friend "Hot." I got my friend "A-hoe" to agree.

The four of us were going to do the dinner-and-movie thing. Before we even got to the restaurant, I sensed a distinct chill in the air. It only got worse at the restaurant. The food came with frost forming on it.

The only relief was when my friend's date, a well-developed Italican, took off her coat in a sweater-puppies-enhancing move that both my friend and I probably had difficulty ignoring. I remember she wore red....

The girls went off to powder their noses, and my friend and I agreed about the relative temperature of our respective dates.

Let's skip the rest, except to say that I had to use a flamethrower to thaw out the passenger seat of my Mustang, while there were scorch marks on the back seat where my friend's date sat.

I called my friend from church and told her about the date. She had heard. As it turns out, unbeknownst to us, Icy's boyfriend had just come back to town, and instead of breaking off our date, she just made it miserable.

The upside was that my friend arranged for us to double-date the next weekend, with a girl he knew, and his own steady girlfriend on whom he had been cheating the previous week, unbeknownst to his girlfriend, or to me.

Well, that date led to many months of dating bliss for me. We had something serious. But my life had taken some bad turns, my dad's sudden death, crappy home life, among other things. I was going a bit nuts.

My friend, remember my friend A-hoe? As I mentioned in a comment recently, A-hoe broke up with his steady and convinced me that I was too young to settle down with one girl after one date, so like the total idiot I was, I broke up with my beautiful first love.

By the time I recovered my sanity, she would not take me back, much to her credit and, I hope, better future life. Took me years to rediscover love. (Smiles at my lady love.)

Later, A-hoe and I were arrested, on a bogus complaint by a guy who, unbeknownst to me at the time, was Icy's father. Sheer coincidence. Only night I ever spent behind bars. But that's another story.

Enough a-holery to go around for all. Except Hot was pleasant enough. And, man! When that Italican gal took off her coat... I can still see them her.

The only way to deal with the kneeling bullshit would have been to constantly hit back at it with: "Why the fuck are you kneeling? Kneeling is submission! Are you kneeling in submission to a symbol of strength that you hate? That's fucking stupid. Are you fucking stupid, Kaperdick?"

It's all theater and images. Retraining the DumbFucks that they are weaklings who are submitting to strength is the only way out.

See, I don't believe Women are evil at all.

But we are different with different psychologies driven by our own DNA.

Hell, even our brains are slightly different.

The problem is that in modern society we are not supposed to acknowledge those differences, so when the inevitable conflict come into play... modern Women can't do a Tammy Wynete and say 'he's just a Man'.

And modern Men have been 'reprogrammed' away from their natural inclinations. So when their 'societal programming' suddenly conflicts with their base operating system (those DNA programmed Man behaviours) that very conflict makes them do really stupid shit, and often strike out at those who really don't deserve it.

Hell, I've been trying to figure out what makes a long lasting relationship work for 40 years now, and still have not been successful (longest was a bit less than 10 years).

Yet there were many years in there, when I WAS happily in a relationship.

By nature, I'm a problem solver. By profession, I was into System Analysis.

Put those together and try to figure out why my own relationships fail? And you can suddenly go down some really strange Rabbit Holes.

Yep, Chesterton's Fence.

Then again, the old roast story:

Young couple get married, holiday occurs she prepares a roast by cutting the ends off before placing it in the oven. He asks "why did you do that"? She replies, "It is what my mother always did.". Not satisfied with the answer they called her mother up and asked why she did that, she answered the same. Now everyone is curious so they phoned grandmother asking her why she cut the ends off of the roast. She replied "to get it to fit in the oven".

590 I came to the conclusion oh so many decades ago, that I just wasn't going to pretzel myself to become something or someone "other than me", in trying to attract distaff attention.

And certainly, I'm clearly not every ladies' cuppa tea. I've never been "the magnet", or Big Man On Campus, etc.

Still though, I've found that being myself has proven sufficient. Maybe not for all that many ladies, but damn sure for myself.

The other thing is, I've never been one to chase the ones that are ceaselessly chased by all the other guys. Dated one of those for 7 months, and oh so many of my concerns were..validated.

I do opine though, that even in spite of lockdownville, there are plenty of available experiences, challenges, activities and projects that can be done, as to render even the blankest "self-portrait" into an interesting piece of art, and frankly, in an astonishingly short period of time.

Just be out there and doing stuff. Odds are strong, you'll be seen and soon found.

I agree. And Camille Paglia has said she has traveled the world and finds middle-class professional women to be the most wretchedly unhappy people she's ever met.

I think both sexes have been programmed to be other than what they were meant to be and that has resulted in massive human unhappiness.

That's not to say that women can't think or work or have careers. We've been programmed to think we have to think like men about those careers and work. I believe that's caused a lot of misery for both men and women.

Its also to important to forget those things that do have a signal: demographics, strain of SARS-CoVi-D-2, relative health, atmospherics, risk homeostasis, cultural sanitation and hygiene differences.

Those things are somewhat measurable; masks are not. If there is a signal, its lost in the noise.

660 559 The irony of my earlier comment is that if I'd met a woman who basically qualified as an 'ette when I was 25, I wouldn't have deserved her anyway. I wasn't squared away."

The irony was that I wasn't an "ette" at 25. I was a goofy lib who bought into a lot of feminist bullshit. I wasn't an antifa asshole with pink hair and a nose ring, but jeez, I thought Reagan was awful. And now I'm sorry I didn't vote for him. So a lot of good 'rons wouldn't have been interested, although I was kinda cute at 25.

Here's the original essay I had found, pointing out that Palestinians are not an ancient people, that Arabs in the region were always pretty much nomadic and temporary. That even when Muslims controlled the region there is acknowledgement that the permanent settlements were Jewish.

You need no more than two rifles, four handguns*, and "basic load" ammo supplies for each. (*basics and 1 backup for each.)

I'm talking about at the "taking action" level, not the tens of thousands of rounds of practice and training ammo you should've fired, long before now.

Shit goes hot, it's not going to be "mad minute" outside the wire at Danang.

You're going to be aiming, firing sparingly, and scootin' and communicating to the best of your ability.

THEY will likely be doing mad mag dumps in the general direction of where you were 15 seconds ago.

And etc.

If Shit Goes Hot beyond a 1st wave conflict and pushback, there's hundreds of millions or even billions of stashed rounds among the Righteous, that will demonstrably appear.

You might only be given 18 rounds for your revolver and paired HKS Speedloaders.

But I doubt anyone on OUR side will find themselves "Winchester" in a pinch.

Yeah, he was from a poor immigrant family and worked his way up the company ladder as far as he could go - but was still living very modestly when my mom fell for him.

So - I'm not sold on arranged marriages. Seems like they were focused more on the material and not on character or potential.

To be fair the EPA spouts also often cause spillage. Needing to have the container practically upside down to get gas to come out and so by the time you're almost full and start to turn it you're overflowing.

711 No bad date stories.

I do have a frustrating "not dating" experience, though.


Met a woman. Started spending a lot of time around her in various situations, and ended up very much interested in her. But I was barely making any money at the time, and my already low wages were reduced to practically nothing when my work hours got reduced more and more as the end of year approached (to the point where I literally didn't work at all the week of Christmas). I barely had money for food at the time. Dates - even cheap ones - were out of the question.

And then, just as work finally started to pick up again, and I was looking forward to my first normal paycheck in a while and maybe having enough money to finally ask her out, she invited myself and some other friends out to an "I'm moving up north, so I want to eat out with some of my friends before I go" dinner. I couldn't really afford it even though the place we ate at was pretty inexpensive, but it didn't matter. I went anyway. After all, she had invited me. And as everyone was leaving, she pulled me aside and issued an "excuse to spend a little time together" invitation. It was nothing spectacular. We just spent a little time in the nearby shopping district. And I was broke. But I enjoyed it.

Work picked up again, I was given the choice between a nice raise with benefits at my current job, or an even better paying job with no benefits. I picked the raise. I expected to have enough money coming in after the raise to be able to drive up and pay her a visit or two. Unfortunately, due to reasons that had absolutely nothing to do with me or anyone at my job, the raise got blocked. Corporate had put a freeze on all raises, and my manager didn't find out about it until it was too late.

But hey, good news. A couple of months later I found out why the freeze had been put in place. A new company was taking over the contract I was working for, and I was going to be making more money. Specifically, I'd be making as much as I would have with the job that I'd turned down, and I'd also have benefits. But for some reason - which puzzled all of my co-workers, who thought I was one of the best employees at the job - the incoming company never extended an offer to me. My outgoing supervisor (who thought I was a critical component of the work done there) at the time arranged things so that I could still get in after the new company took over (he reached out to the placement company that was hiring the new employees for the contract, and they reached out to me), albeit at a lower pay rate.

The new company took over the contract, things were moving along, I was getting paid more money and finally looking forward to saving some of it and maybe taking a trip up north, and out of the blue the woman in question contacted me. She was in town, and asked me out to dinner. I had a lovely dinner with her, paid for it since I finally had some extra money, looked forward to seeing more of her in the future as I was finally earning enough money to be able to start saving and to seriously consider taking a road trip...

And then I suddenly got laid off with no warning two weeks later.

Went onto unemployment. Road trips were out of the question. And even if I'd been so inclined, my alternator had quit working, which I confirmed later (a suspicious dead battery early on was a clue, but I couldn't afford to get it looked at then). If I had taken a road trip, my car battery likely would have died out in the middle of nowhere. Had lousy luck finding a new job, except for a one month temporary contract gig with lousy pay. But it was a job, so I took it. I finally did find a job - and a decently paying one at that - quite literally just before my unemployment ran out (seriously; I didn't realize how close I was until I looked at the amount remaining after receiving my final unemployment check, and noticing that there was less than ten bucks of unemployment left). I started thinking about taking a road trip again...

And then I found out that she expected to be moving back down to LA County in a few months. It was one of the happiest days of my life. And it put my road trip plans on hold, which I discovered was a good thing when my mechanic found the aforementioned dead alternator.

So I got my car repaired, started saving some money, and waited.

Four or five months later, I found out through a mutual friend that she had, in fact, not moved back down, but had instead married someone up there, where she's still living.

I'm still pretty upset about the whole thing. I'm not upset with her. I have no idea if she knew that I was particularly interested in her, since I'd never really had an opportunity to try and actively pursue her. But I am upset with the general unfairness of the whole situation to me. I'd done what I could to try and do something. A number of situations arose that *should* have become opportunities for me to finally start to try actively courting her. But every time it looked like I was finally going to get the long-awaited opportunity, the door got slammed shut in my face at the last moment through quite literally no fault of my own.

And it got dragged out for almost two years, right up until the moment when I expected her to move back. But, as always, what I thought was about to happen, didn't. Instead she belongs to someone else, and I never even had the opportunity to try.

Do not look to other people for your happiness. They will ALWAYS disappoint. Instead, accept them for who they are and give them as much trust as they earn, and otherwise simply enjoy their company until you don't.


Look to the Lord in heaven for happiness, for you will never find true happiness here on earth. You are on a journey to your true home, none of us here have found that yet, so enjoy the trip, but don't expect to stay somewhere that will completely satisfy yourself, because you are not home.

This here is truth.

I have entire chapters in my personal history that I've never told to another soul, and never will.

And I've filed them off into forgottenville, forever. They STAY there, too.

It's not always because they're "shameful". But it IS always because they're not USEFUL.

I'm as far from perfect as can be found. But I've learned how to be modestly content, even if I fully know that said contentment is at least as much "luck", as "deserved".

And if I need more contentment, I'll hunt it down, kill it, and drag it's carcass into my lair.

I'm gentle, like that.

So there she sits, smiling bigger than anybody in the place. Can't decide what to order, in a steak house. Also she doesn't drink and doesn't like people that drink. The waitress had to keep coming back for at least an hour to see if we were ready to order. Of course I wasn't allowed to sit there and get shitfaced.

A good friend's wife late last year walked out after 24 years, and left him and their 20 year old daughter for some HS friend she had "found" on FB, three time zones away.

Buddy later found out she was taking lots of SSID drugs for emotional stability. He knew of one prescription, but later found out she was eating multiple prescriptions like candy. And a few months before the walkout, she was "unbelievably crazy in bed", as my buddy put it.


After the walkout, that devastated both the buddy and his daughter, found out that SSID drugs make women, mostly, drop their "boundaries" and just go with the flow. The emotional extremes for her just disappeared. Guess this is what those drugs do.

Buddy found FB groups that have many members with similar stories. Like, thousands of similar stories.

It has taken them many months now to pick up the pieces and start moving forward again. The ex actually wonders why her only daughter won't talk with her at all, simply because she moved across the country to get hosed by her HS buddy. Daughter refuses to answer any call or respond to any text from her mom.

Very sad, really. What opened my eyes was the thousands of women who have taken SSID drugs and gone porn star in their minds. I read some of those FB posts. It's insane. Why those drug manufacturers aren't drowning in lawsuits is stunning to me.

775 I have entire chapters in my personal history that I've never told to another soul, and never will.

For years, I've told myself that to let someone get close, they need to *know*. Because it'd be dishonest to not tell them, even if that's not me anymore.

It's a worry that if I didn't, it would come out anyway and that would make it worse.

So I think about this a lot. Still not sure what the right thing to do happens to be.

Dated a woman for about a year, here in my home town.

I thought things were good. Hell, our FATHERS had even worked together. LOTS in common, lots of fun times, lovely lady.

Did not know she was on some pretty serious anti anxiety meds.

Then she hit menopause, and they started to play with hormone meds. So she was on and off with her anti anxiety meds.

So, turns out she was SERIOUSLY co dependent, and wanted me to make all the choices for her, but the anti anxiety meds were masking that tendency.

She ended up checking herself into the psych ward, for weeks. Would not talk to me at all. Did not want to see me.

Got out, moved in with her daughter in another town, and within 6 months, was off to marry 'an old high school friend' she had been talking to on facebook, BUT HAD NOT SEEN IN 35 years.

I'm not very very leary of dating anyone on any psych drugs.

I think arranged marriages are an attempt to promote social stability in cultures where people marry young. If you're going to get married at 17 and 18, you might as well let a couple of adults pick your mate as try to pick it yourself.

I have accumulated those, my entire life.

Being a 14 y/o kid around the pool in San Diego, CA, listening to the pre-ONT chats of all the "divorcees" on their chaise lounges, I came to a few key realizations.

Accumulating those memories was one of them.

And choosing to be "Middle Age Crazy" RIGHT THEN, was another.

I've never stopped a lifelong quest to take-in experiences, gain knowledge and push boundaries.

Resultingly, the "biography" of my life might make Walter Mitty blush in modest embarrassment.

I joke with my family that stories have a 'statute of limitations' after which you can tell it, but it depends on who you are telling the story to.

So, I've got 10 years stories, 20 year stories.

Hell, I'm here taking care of my 91 year old Mom, and just a couple of nights ago she heard a story I finally felt OK to tell from 40 years ago.

But the BESTEST Stories? Are the ones you tell, that you know are absolutely true, but are so outside of normal life, that your audience does not believe you.

But from there, a whole new younger generation of Baby Boomers hitting adolescence heard it for the first time from the beatniks, and thought it must therefore be hip and edgy -- completely unaware that it had been a word their own parents had used a generation earlier. So as the Baby Boomers became hippies, they borrowed the "beatnik" word and made it mainstream.

After that, its history is well known, and by the Carter/Reagan era had worn out its hepness, and became symbolic of pathetic aging hippies were had become the uncool old folks. Mike Meyers briefly brought it back as a mocking joke word, but that only lasted for a few years. By now, it is only ever used sardonically, and even then only very rarely.

This can had the "NEW IMPROVED!" nozzle tube on it, which screws on the top. I squirted some in some holes I wanted to fill, then set the can down. I didn't look the can. Well, that screw-on tube just unscrewed itself a few turns, apparently due to the force from the foam inside trying expand. It starts leaking, which I didn't see. I grab the can and go to squirt some more, and before I know it, it's all over my hand.

I get it on the other hand trying to screw it back down and stop the leaking.

Water in the air is what cures the stuff. Liquid water will cure it fast. It was humid as hell and my hands were sweaty. It cured before I could even get to a rag.

Back in the very late '70s, I used to work with that stuff for a living.

In 800 lb. cylinders. Fed through a manifold system into 25 lb. (nearly identical to) propane cylinders of the same size.

Pressurized by Dry Nitrogen gas.

Those 25 lb. tanks went into the field with insulation Air-Infiltration installers. I did a lot of that, myself.

But I was the only one who could run the forklift, move the 800 lb. tank, and assemble and run the manifold.

One day, another guy thought he could.

Ever seen the result of an 800 lb. tank of foam, pressurized behind a tank of 2000 psi Nitrogen, regulated to 125 psi, run-out with no time limit?

I'd say the foam-ball encompassed about 1,000 sq. ft., to a height of about 15 ft. above the warehouse floor.

The company's insurance adjusters were NOT amused.

For those who do watch it, a thought: imagine if anything this substantial were disseminated through the MSM, were discussed in detail in a public forum (with CDC and state health people having to react to the key points), etc.

I'm sure the Dark Ages sucked in most ways - I mean, a good cold beer on a hot day wasn't even an idea yet - but we now have something close to medieval quackery guiding public health/inspiring authoritarian abuse.

I have never been able to use just part of a can, and then be able to use the rest at a later date. They need to invent some sort of solvent or "anti-catalyst", and pack it in a small spray can with a wand on it like WD-40 is packed. Spray the foam as desired, and then use the product in the little can to clear the foam wand and the outlet port of the valve.

And I would say worse about those who have ruined the enjoyment of watching the game, probably forever.

But words of any kind do not express the burning hatred I have for all of those who have ruined it for fans like me, who just want to have a little fun and spend a lot of money while doing it. Just to get a few hours of mindless fun to forget about all the bullshit of life.

I know the no math rule, but let me make it easy.

906 My favorite bit of "groovy" trivia:

In 1964, a 16-year-old girl was attending Julliard (the NY music school) were she was introduced to the 1700s classical music composer Muzio Clementi. She took a particular liking to a specific section (the "Rondo") from one his earlier works, Opus 36, No. 5, written in 1797.

But this girl was very unusual for a 16-year-old: She already was a well-known songwriter herself -- she had written two top-40 hits back when she was only 15 years old, one for the Shirelles. So she was already an insider in the record business.

Well one day she and her songwriting partner (also a young woman) sat down at home and decided it was time to crank out another hit. Casting about unsuccessfully for a melody for a while, she had an idea: Why don't I just plagiarize that old Clementi sonata I like so much? No one will know -- no one'e ever heard of Muzio Clementi outside of pretentious classical music circles.

So she announced to her partner -- Hey! I've got it! How about THIS melody? And she played a simplified version of the Clementi sonata on the piano.

Her partner was blown away. That's fantastic! I'll write lyrics to it! But first, here's a suggestion: Slow it down. Slow it WAYYYY down. No way could I write lyrics for such a rapid-fire melody.

So the girls slowed it down, and slowed it down further, until it was just slow enough. And they tried to match some catchy phrase to some heretofore wordless section of the melody, and for some reason the words, "Groovy...kind of...love!" occurred to them. Because they had just recently heard the word "groovy" for the first time and thought the other kids would like to hear it in a song.

So the 16-year-old walked the finished song (melody + lyrics) over to the Brill Building (where all the music publishers had their offices), and tried to sell it -- unsuccessfully at first. Eventually an awful version was recorded and released only overseas, where it flopped, but after many months of trying, they finally sold it to a struggling band called The Mindbenders, who recorded it -- and "Groovy Kind of Love" became a worldwide Top Ten hit, including #2 in the US in 1966. And is now considered a '60s rock classic.

The song peaked at the same moment the word "groovy" peaked, and is credited for being partly responsible for the word's popularity.

Oh, and that girl -- by the name of Toni Wine -- got away with the plagiarism, and never acknowledged Clementi as the actual composer.

PTSD is funny that way. You can deal with it by either immersion or avoidance. Neither is necessarily worse than the other unless the activity of those things is directly physically harmful.

Personally I'm an avoider. And realizing that avoidance in this case is healthy - and not "running away" as the armchair psychologists would call it - was particularly freeing.

Neither, really.

Fully grasping it, but Moving ON.

And not burdening others with the debris left behind. Simple as that.

One of the finest honors of my life, would be should I be afforded the chance to buy the drinks for you and your Marine son.

I would be humbled to do so, and yet eager for the opportunity.

Bring him to a Tx Mo Meet. YOU might have a sense of the honors to befall him there. But then again, you might not. It might just surprise you,.

Fifteen years here with a lass with an MBA from the University of Ulster.

We fly the Red Hand on the flagpole on the appropriate dates.

My wish was to have marched in an Orange Parade with her son in Belfast, but sadly, he passed at the young age of 33, in Glasgow.

I did though take him to a major Shooting Fiesta, here in Texas. He got to shoot EVERY damn thing.

His mates in the UK were chuffed beyond words at the pictures, and were jealous.

We have a Freedom Culture here which the world envies.

NEVER FORGET THAT.

Jim,

Unfortunately nurse rached will not be attending the TXMoMe. I'll talk more when I see you at the end of next month, live. And gotta say, I haven't looked forward to something like this in a few years, at least.

And I am already trying to figure out how to cover my share of the ammo bill. All my calibers in stock are 3,000 rounds or less. I only have 400 rounds of 30.06 to my name. Kind of embarrassing.

But I do have may k's of .22LR, and would be happy to pre-ship a couple thousand rounds, just because. I've travelled before to a shoot and just bought ammo locally, but these days there is a better chance of picking the winning 6 numbers in Powerball.


But I also want to say that you are obviously invited to the next PacNWMoMe that will occur sometime next year, probably May or June. It won't be as big as your MoMe, but I promise you, pound for pound, absolutely the finest Moron stock anywhere. Being behind enemy lines, we are constantly aware of the BS. Head on a swivel, you know the drill. We are constantly training. And no, like nurse, being born here, I'm not leaving.

And nurse, I've seen her shoot. Whoa.

It just so happens that I know quite a bit about the Orange parades, if you get my drift.
And if this shit ever gets over and life returns to normality then I'd be more than happy to welcome to the village outside Bangor where I live on the 12th someday.

The 11th night is fun with all the bonfires and that but the 12th night after the parades in the local Orange Hall when all the weary Orangemen want to let down their hair can get pretty hectic and fun. Especially with two not particularly sober flute bands adding their two pennies worth.

The media lies by commission and omission.

But in not reporting a story at all, that is how the media get a stranglehold on The Narrative.

1009 I'm done with the NFL, NBA, MLB. Co-workers are astonished at this. I was a fan of it all but now they all can go fuck themselves. Maybe people who show up for games should hold up signs with the names of the other victims. Maybe like Ray Carruth's baby mama. How about-who was that jackwad from the Ravens that punched out his wife in the elevator?

1014 Colin Kaepernick's Madden rating is higher than 17 starters

I still can't understand why Colin isn't a starter in the NFL. Come on owners, do the right thing. /sarc

1016 Mornin'

Any awful dating stories you want to share?

I actually had a date bring a date on our date. Well, she had a backup date stashed at the restaurant bar, in case things went bad. I came back from the men's room and caught her at the bar kissing him. When she came back to the table I asked who that was. She said, oh, an old boyfriend I asked to be here. Wait, why did you ask him to be here? Oh, you know, dates can go wrong. I made up an obviously fake sudden illness and beat it. She seemed astonished that I was offended.

1019 PDT should start pounding out the stats for operation Legend. No need for new gun laws, just enforce the ones that are on the books. In these big cities, in many instances, there are not that many guns in the hands of gang members but a cache, doled out by the boss as needed. Start seizing them, and prosecuting for felon in possession, and you start getting results real quick. Chicago has seen a significant homicide drop (hard to believe, going from horrible to bad, but still a drop).

Remember when protesters hounded the NFL regarding Michael Vick and his dog-fighting situation? So much so that it led to the NFL suspending Vick and Vick having to go on an apology tour until the NFL let him back in the league.

Apparently, dog-fighting is more upsetting to fans than the NFL supporting Marxism and rapists. Because you are not seeing the same outrage from fans over any of this BLM-support and wearing criminals, drug addicts and rapists' names on their helmets.

Granted, maybe they are all like me and are just doing the #walkaway from professional sports.

A shot was heard.

A woman screamed.

At least, she didn't have anything in her mouth.

1024 Oh, another Bad Date. First (and last) date. Met through a dating service. She was a big Smashing Pumpkins fan. I bought a pair of very expensive tix, among the best seats in the house.

She. Spent. The. Entire. Fking. Concert. bitching about the seats. Would not shut up for a minute. Kept pointing to empty seats and wanting to "move down." I must have heard it a hundred times. Even on the way home in the car, still bitching about the seats. I practically threw her out of the car at the end of the night.

Gone full circle.

People have always voted for party. For thousands of years. Rarely does the person matter.

It's why things like the conventions and electoral college exist - most people do not care who the actual candidate is.

Free Shit Army wants free shit.

1038 Well then, My exwife cheated on me with absolute epic levels. I am the idiot that that loved and trusted my wife. I was stupid enough to try to save the marriage. Ha ha ha ha... When I left the house I uncased my Garand, loaded a clip, and started to aim at the farmers 500 buck a head cows. I thought about it for a moment, unloaded the Garand, gave my now Ex the finger with both hands, and drive away.
20 years later, I have no S O at all. Female room mate with non attachment at all, but I do have some companionship. She is like living with my sister. Not how I expected life to go, I had planned to grow old with someone I loved, who loved me back. Next life maybe.
