Saturday Morning Coffee Break

The Saturday Morning Joke

Learning to Cuss

A 6 year old and a 4 year old are playing in the yard.
The 6 year old asks, "You know what? I think it's about time we started learning to cuss". The 4 year old nods his head in approval.
The 6 year old continues, "When we go in for breakfast, I'm gonna say something with hell and you say something with ass".
The 4 year old agrees with enthusiasm
When the mother walks into the kitchen and asks the 6 year old what he wants for breakfast, he replies,
"Aw, hell, Mom, I guess I'll have some Cheerios".
WHACK!
He flies out of his chair, tumbles across the kitchen floor, gets up, and runs upstairs crying his eyes out, with his mother in hot pursuit, slapping his rear with every step. His mom locks him in his room and shouts, "You can stay there until I let you out!"
She then comes back downstairs, looks at the 4 year old and asks with a stern voice, "And what do YOU want for breakfast, young man?"

"I don't know", he blubbers, "but you can bet your ass it won't be Cheerios."

Fourteen years later they had both enlisted in the Marine Corps.

Saturday morning. Enjoy the fresh commentary of opinions. Please one another by bloviating away the morning. Hey, it's an open thread. Just remember, no white elephant presents, no pulling 'ettes hair and no pissing in the pool. Be nice to one another. And have a great weekend!

23 So I'm going to have to use multiple posts to post part of this reflection for Christmas by this pastor from the local churches:

"Within the Bible I found that joy is often paired with a contrasting feeling. Take for example the story of Jesus' birth. The angels were sharing what they called 'good news of great joy, but the shepherds didn't feel joyful. They felt terrified'

Within the Bible I found that joy was paired with fear, sorrow, trouble or difficulty. God's people could experience joy, for God had acted on their behalf, God was with them... (to be continued)

31 Waiting on the phone to order new checks from the Styles people. I don't use many checks in a month, but I still do use them. And Styles was cool on my last order -- I had given them my CC info, but then found I had to cancel the card due to some fraud charges. I called them, and they had already sent the order. They trusted me to call them with the new CC info! (I did, of course, the day I got the card.)

35 Part two-connected to post 23-

"But they were still living in a broken and difficult world

-and so their joy was almost always infected by a contrasted feeling.

Personally I found this comforting. We are not alone in having our joys mixed with sadness.

Another lesson I learned about joy was this: When the Bible speaks about God's joy it does so without condition.

God's joy is rooted in God's connection to us, God is joyful when God is able to find us, and bring us back into God's loving care. God is like a shepherd rejoicing after rescuing a lost sheep.

Nashville has a license plate camera scanning system that tracks all vehicles. They most certainly know everything about that RV's path.
A car driving from Baton Rouge to Gulfport, for example, is scanned and logged no less than 80 times. Eighty. One tiny municipality I work with has dozens. It is impossible to go between two points without having the entire trip recorded by the police. It's troubling.

42 Wow. Got in here early today so near the top.

I see some yard work in my future. Willow tree in the yard drops sticks and limbs just by looking at it, it seems. We had a couple days of 30 to 40 mph winds, so there is an abundance.

At least it will be warmer today to at least start on it.

I hate that tree for that reason alone.

This is this pastor's ending prayer. I agree with it.

I pray that in 2021, we will have a truly happy and joyful new year. No doubt sorrows will continue, but so will our joy and my hope is that, with God's help our joy will be abundant

(I must credit this pastor-Rev. Jeff Knol)

59 Mornin', horde! Our Christmas looked to be completely nuked when a friend tested positive for the WuFlu. The in-laws have a couple of issues, but not many. But one of their spawn married a nurse who is still scared. So I'm pretty sure they had to choose between seeing us and seeing them. We are forgiving types, and I guess that decided it. No one is sick (of course. I'm pretty sure this household has now survived both variants just fine) and we get to spend the holidays in our own beds. The bad part was the children's heartbreak. They adore their grandparents.

76 Have been reading a lot of Hayek lately, primarily The Fatal Conceit. He makes the point that people learn from imitation and societies advance through experimentation, not from pure reason or the contribution of intellectuals. He further states that intellectuals tend toward socialism because it is a society based not on anything real, only the musings of the intellect. Watching a documentary on Seattle losing its soul to the rabble on the street and it included an interview with the female mayor. She perfectly represents the detachment from reality of the 'intellectual' left.

But, have you considered looking at BJ's Wholesale club?

I was skeptical, but went with them for the Volvo wagon, and was totally impressed with the tire choice, price, service and follow up.

93 A car driving from Baton Rouge to Gulfport, for example, is scanned and logged no less than 80 times. Eighty. One tiny municipality I work with has dozens. It is impossible to go between two points without having the entire trip recorded by the police. It's troubling.

Was stopped on the interstate in Bumfuck, Mississippi by a Deputy Sherrif with plate readers because I had a paper plate from a dealer in Texas.

They pulled over a "sovereign citizen" because he was driving with a homemade paper license plate.

The sovereign citizen's son got out and blasted both deputies with his AK.

119 Well, First World Problems

I am here in Manchester TN and the AT&T network is still down.

It went down yesterday not right at the bombing, but around 8 am or so. So I guess AT&T turned their switching station or whatever it is off, shortly after the bombing.

It is bizarre to me that there was a single point of failure for a huge part of their network. Perhaps AT&T will learn something over this.

But for now an internet detox

The audio message does eliminate anyone who would be looking to harm people, though. That would leave either an alphabet agency or someone just looking to destroy something in the ATT building. The fact that communications were interrupted hours later but the interruption was blamed on the explosion makes me think government.

If they wanted to warn people away from DC, they'd have bombed DC. This was a direct attack on AT&T. Huawei's revenge? Lefty who love Huawei, just a random lib. Don't know, but if you want to scare DC you don't hit Nashville.

The S Mc G stuff on RedState was interesting, seems the first person to release a video of the warning and explosion was a new account holder and this was their first offering. A variant of S McG was also found on youtube and was talking apocalypse and showing Irish pols, it was also a newbie account.

Except there was.

And I will lay out these hypotheticals - systems that stay up at first are damaged or shut down as fire suppression - water - comes in.

Also, I will give you this example I had personally in my data center once.

Power surge popped a breaker in a power supply, and everything in the rack switched over to the other circuit. Which was fine. Until the breaker in that power supply DIDN'T pop - and the plug melted.

Did this meme mention Sandy OCrazyHo-TittyCaca (age 31), Ayanna Pressley (age 46), or Ho-Queen Castro (age 46), all of whom also got the vaccine?

Why no, it didn't. Oddly enough.

Nor did it mention that Ted Cruz (age 50) declined the vaccine, as he thinks it should go to old people first.

Folks of a certain age will remember when bombings typically came with a warning precisely to prevent casualties. The notion was to demonstrate an ability to strike at will while also appearing humane.

That kind of thing went away with the rise of Islamic suicide bombing, but it was pretty common during the 70s and 80s, along with hijacking jets to Cuba.

I hope not. My grandma always bought those pieces of crap, leading to young Rodrigo learning to how to change tires at an early age (like 10 or 11).

At first it was like "Yay! I am allowed to change tires! I am now a man!".

267 ok Braenyard, the video of the actual explosion is fascinating. Definitely not a normal homemade "bomb". There is an explosion (the flash of light), then something shoots into the sky (a propane tank with the end knocked off? I've seen that before) and only THEN does the big explosion happen. A homemade bomb doesn't have a staged explosive sequence like that.

Used tires aren't the same as retreads/recaps, though.

Hazy memory says that recaps stopped being a major thing about the same time as radials became near-universal.

Maybe radials don't retread well (not that bias-ply retreads were GOOD, mind you)?

But I could be wrong there.

There. That's my WAG about the ingredients for the Nashville bomb, based on nothing more than footage I saw from CFP story. White smoke initially, which in my mind is linked with the bomb vests of the ME. They are powerful, but non-incendiary. May have been a small bomb.

357 I sent off a set of Pirelli P7's clear across the country for retreading, years ago. Yes, they can be retreaded, and well, too. The thing was? The belts of that carcass must be investigated extremely carefully. Yes, one of mine had a separation, so the other three are still set aside in the shop. The retread guy said a huge number of high-performance low profile radials are running around with broken steel in the belts, and they hold together to the end of the tread life just fine. When you start a second life cycle, little things like that tend to show up on the inside of the wheelwells.

He sent my other three home for free, so I didn't see where he had cause to lie.

422 Several years ago, my Doctor suggested that I take aB-12 and a D supplement to offset the longterm (20 year plus) use of omeprazole.
Quarterly blood work showed me at the low end of both.

Next series of draws had me sitting exactly where I should be on both.

So...it's part of my daily regime.

423 That article about the AT&T customers is dumb. It destroyed fiber lines. Individual fiber lines are about the thickness of a hair. (Place I worked for passed around a piece of fiber cable for us to look at). It takes time to repair them. Standard breaks take at least 24 hours and I wouldn't be surprised if this takes longer.

432 A lot of puns are homophones, and are better delivered in spoken form, with the ability to inject a subtle change in emphasis or pronunciationn to deliver the pun. Tying to format for delivery in written form is a challenge.

I imagine that sometimes people scrutinize even my 'straight' comments looking for the hidden pun, to no avail. And some of my personal favorites have passed unnoticed and unremarked.

Every article that's written had better be focused on electoral fraud. That is THE single issue. Think pieces on trannies or on how terrible Biden's would-be cabinet picks are is 2015 crap. This is war time, I want focus.

It is remarkably fun and stupid for a Russian film.

They used Rachmaninoff's piano concerto 2 for their romantic scene, which compelled me to find "All By Myself," for closure - because that's how the concerto is supposed to end, if you grew up in the 70s.

Lexus = the Japanese answer to Buick! I certainly think it's a premium car in every respect, and I drove older Benzes (W123 coupe, W126, W202) for 10 years.

453 "And another one from Norfolk VA navy base that I got on the day I was discharged."

Got one from an MA1 Off the USS Sierra at Charleston Naval Base in the 80's.

Fought it in Base traffic court where the CO of the base was the judge.

When he saw my photographs of the conflicting and missing parking signs on HIS base, he dropped the ticket, and went off on base security.

Within about two weeks every sign was brand new, non-conflicting and professional.

460 KC Jones. Great ballplayer, great guy.
True story, I was sitting next to him at a bar in Boston having lunch at the bar. Said hello, how are you etc. He was being mentioned as possible Coach of the Celtics, but was also interviewing with other teams, on of which was the Warriors. He finished his bowl of chowder, and as he was heading out, played Tony Bennett's I left my Heart on the jukebox. I figured this meant he was going with the Warriors.
An hour later the news reported his hiring as Celtic Coach.
