Tonight's ONT Is $20, Same As Downtown

Happy Thursday everybody! Tell me, how do you tell the difference between a plumber and a chemist?

Answer (highlight to read):Ask them to pronounce “Unionized”


Oops.jpg

Order In The Court

These Insane Legal Plot Twists Had Us Screaming

I did a divorce where the husband (who I was representing) wanted to trade custody of his children for a set of bedroom furniture. The bedroom furniture was not even like a family heirloom. It was furniture that you could probably get at a Rooms-to-Go or something. Ugh, even thinking of that guy still makes me ill. That’s why I got out of family law.

The story about guy who evicted a ghost is pretty funny.


Dear ONT, I Am Pleased To Be Writing To You From My Office In The National Bank Of Nigeria

Ever wonder who falls for those emails? Well, back in the 1990s it was a bank

The Scammer who Sold a $242 Million Imaginary Airport to a Bank


He eventually got caught when another bank tried to buy the first bank and noticed that almost a quarter of a billion in supposed assets didn't exist, but you won't believe the punishment this guy got.

A Question For Gamers

What does “ultra realism” mean? I was told that the trend in games these days is “ultra realism”, and was pointed to the trailer for the new Battlefield 2042 game as an example. Well, the graphics look amazing, but the trailer is filled with people doing things that are flat out impossible, not the least of which was a pilot in a dogfight (modern fighters too, not WWI biplanes) who ejects from his plane, shoots down the other plane with a hand held RPG, and then catches the edge of his cockpit as he's falling past and pulls himself back in. How on Earth is that considered “realism”, never mind the ultra part? Here, judge for yourself (F-35 equipped with hand held anti-tank weapon vs SU-57 at 2:57).

Thursday Night Movie Game


Actors.jpg

How many of these actors/movies can you name?

Wholesome Stuff


I rather like Ryan Reynolds. He's a decent actor and seems to have a real sense of humor, he doesn't take himself too seriously (which is why he was such a great Deadpool). He also seems to have a really strong relationship with his wife, Blake Lively (and his practice wife was Scarlett Johansson, rrrrowl). The two of them love to troll each other on social media, here are some of the best examples:

Amusing Moments of Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively Trolling Each Other


Related: Unpopular opinion: I rather liked the Green Lantern movie that he starred in too.


Mismatch


The world's tallest man hung out with the world's shortest woman and the photos are amazing

They are too. You could fit a whole person between the top of her head and the bottom of his.


The Fourth Estate

Matt Gaetz Just Shared Threatening Texts from… REPORTERS.

Seems they are contacting everyone he knows and threatening to include them in made up stories about Rep Gaetz unless they confirm the stories, in which case they'll be left out. “I'm about to go to press with the story of Matt fucking an alligator while you held its tail, if you confirm this I'll leave your name out of it”.

Snowflakes

'These places make non-athletic girls feel awful': Mum, 40, breaks down in tears and leaves a fitness class early after the 'fit and attractive' women made her feel a 'failure'

This woman is having a breakdown because there were other women at her gym in better shape than she was. Nobody did or said anything to her, mind you, she just “felt bad” and so she left in tears. She also claims to have G-cup breasts, but looking to her picture there's just no way (Unless 12G means something different in Australia, in which case I apologize for my disparaging remark)

He Was Wearing Bad Idea Jeans

From the video description:

this guy in the video drove 1 hour to my gym just to fight with me.. He said he have been In and out of prison he have anger issues and was looking for somewhere to train. But first he wanted to get in the ring with me.. He said he’s been in many street fights. Also many fights while being locked up. I had no intention to even spar Because I was on crutches and freshly out of hip surgery. After I showed him my crutches he went on to call me a kitty cat and said are you backing out. He is a bully that needed to Be humbled.

Humbled he was.

You Have To Be Shitting Me

But hey, no more mean tweets, right?


Mower Update

Turns out they gave me the wrong ignition switch for my zero turn, hopefully the new one will be in tomorrow and that solves the problem. I have another question. I also have a regular Husqvarna tractor mower that did the same thing (worked one week, next week it wouldn't start. For a moment there I wondered if my shed had been struck by an EMP). On that one, when I turn the key nothing happens, but nothing happens when I short across the posts of the solenoid either. What's the most likely place to look for fault? The ignition switch is new and the battery is fully charged.

38 Cinematics don't always translate to in-game visuals. Now some game makers will actually tell you this is from the game engine at ultra or whatever setting. Others won't say anything. And it could still be the game engine but has been ray-traced, anti-aliased, shadow mapped, remapped with massive textures, depth of field processed, out the wazoo. Multi-hour FX runs on a bunch of nodes for a few seconds of cinematics that you would never see in-game.

But the funny thing is, I've found that over time in-game graphics catch up to the fanciest things game makers put in their cinematics.

44 Does your mower have a cpu?

If it does it can lock out an ignition signal. Trace the computer signals. One should go to the ignition switch or solenoid. Then trace where that computer signal passes thru a relay or connector.

It's difficult to trouble shoot something by word only. Some ignition switches take more than one terminal to activate and same with solenoid.

You can try jumping the connections to the starter direct. Be careful it will arc unless you have a batter disconnect in the circuit and can use that as an off/on switch.

If starter works then start back tracing. I'd bet you missed some signal from a computer. They use ground to switch things on and off so you can have a signal (plus) yet still things don't work because the computer provides the ground. No ground= no work.

55 Those photos remind me of an ancient internet civilization thing.

Does anyone remember that website where they had movie quiz games? I think the original game was a shot from a movie and they would remove one critical element from the film frame with photoshop magic. Like forest gump but you'd just see a photo of a bench no forest and you had to guess the movie.

Anyone else remembers that? It was about 20 years ago I think.

I'm late to the Victoria's Secret thing, but I stopped shopping there ages ago because, as they were kind enough to inform a similarly small friend, "We don't cater to your size." The Little Bra Company does cater to my size, but I'm honestly at the point of wanting to buy that book on bra design and construction I've had in my Amazon shopping cart for a while and just start making my own. Sick of nothing fitting and everything being made by what is very little better than slave labor.

72 That Battlefield game looks great, but it's a bit too much action for my taste. I want to take it easy with games, like Skyrim or Red Dead Redemption 2. You can't really stop, smell the virtual roses, and admire the graphics in a game like that. Just go go go go the whole time.

I think the "ultra-realism" refers mostly to things like graphics textures, lighting, shadows, reflections, and animations. Weather, clouds, smoke, crepuscular (yeah, I said it) rays... that sort of thing. Oh, and sound effects.

74 "Why did you... He just invited Bob and Agnes to come over for a BDSM party.

I think the more important question is whether or not Bob & Agnus are on their way over now.

Reminds me of a an SCA event we went to (no not like LOL). It was a Fairy Tale themed event, so Wifey was planning on our costumes: She was going as the Cheshire Cat, her best friend was the Queen of Hearts, and I (Fen) was the 2 of Spades. There was also a "best rendition of fairy tale" contest and she was thinking her friend and I would have a good shot at winning if we entered it together.

Anyways, she's eating dinner, phone rings so she picks up. It's her best friend. So she says "I've been thinking a lot about you and Fen - " but she has to stop to swallow her food before she can complete the sentence. Her friend is on the other end stunned, thinking this is some weird sex request. Best part is Wifey starts laughing so hard she's iin tears (aware of what that sounded like) that she STILL can't finish the sentence and correct it.

She finally caught her breath and explained, but her friend was always awkward around me after that. Good thing she didn't say "oh really? Me too!" LOL

75 A couple of years back, when I haunted the private sale forum at CalGuns regularly, Model 29s (Dirty Harry's revolver) were nearly always for sale. And usually "fired only a few times" or the like in the description.

Well, yeah. A beast of a revolver, with expensive beastly ammo (unless you use 44 Special, and that's still among the pricier of the calibers), will end up not being many people's favorite gun. Anyway, don't know if the overhang of little-used 29s for sale is still there, but it was definitely a thing a few years back.

A .44 magnum is a bastard of a gun to fire. And Harry had an auto-mag in "Sudden Impact". They had stopped making them because they were REALLY expensive and ....hard to handle (fire). I saw one in a gun shop not long after Sudden Impact came out and it was around $1100, and this was in the 1980's.

91 When in the Navy, I was an operator/tech for our tracking/guidance radar. Millions of dollars.

We found about half our faults that brought the system down were sensors that failed. Giving bad readings or lockouts when the switch went bad. $10 part deadlining a 10 million mission critical radar.

It is to laugh. I've used that experience to good effect when trouble shooting electronics; always check your sensors that can stop operation first. Make sure you've got all the correct inputs then check for faults in the main stuff. wiring always a good one.

This is true. Mag-Na-Porting 'em helps a lot. Loading that cartridge into a Ruger Super Redhawk helps even more. As much of a dyed in the wool S&W fanboy as I am, I'll acknowledge greatness when I see it.

The Ruger Super Redhawk is GREAT in the .44 Remington Magnum chambering.

172 For a dead.giy, Buzzion has a point. 90% of new game trailers have that "not actual game footage" appended at the bottom.

173 The Battlefield trailer is also almost all CGI. I don't think there was any actual gameplay in it. This is a bit of a contentious thing in gaming now where many are tired of the CGI trailers that have no actual gameplay visuals in it.

You mentioned RDR2 - Would you, or someone else who likes RDR mind explaining to me what I'm supposed to do in it? Background - I like open world FPS like Far Cry or Assassins Creed. It's good escapism... shoot bad guys, save good guys, pew pew, etc... They're not very "deep", but they're fun.

I got Red Dead Redemption and GTA V, and I've played each for a few hours, but it seems kind of pointless. Perhaps I need to get deeper into the story. I can ride around on a horse in the desert or in a car in LA, but I couldn't figure out why.

These are hugely popular games, so I must be missing something or they're more complicated than the dumdum games I've been used to.

I think that I would actually pay to see a movie in CGI that had action like what was shown in the Battlefield 2042 trailer. My son turned me onto a 'cinematic' of a Star Wars: Old Republic video game, and I found it to be quite entertaining. More so, in fact, than any of the sequels or prequels. I'd love to see that in a feature-length film, for example.

Some guy put his plane into a climb, jumped out, shot down another plane with an anti-tank missile and got back into his plane. It was not realistic in the traditional sense, but it actually worked within the rules of the game and it was hilarious.

And if *that's* not enough, we'll consider not blindsiding eastern European allies, like the first of the 3 Obama administrations did, junking previous missile defense commitments with no consultation or warning. We'll actually *tell them in advance* as we back-stab the only actual allies in the NATO "alliance".

258 Depending on whether DeSantis continues on his roll, I really like the idea of DeSantis as president and Trump in a sort of Bannon like advisor roll with plenty of press time. Trump is a showman and DeSantis has a serious Michael Corleone air about him. And make sure the staff is mostly his Fla people. No more allowing the GOP to fill half the spots. Of course this all depends on DeSantis staying consistent and not going squishy. What the last few years has taught me is don't completely trust anyone and be ready to rethink them on a dime.

But her hairline is that of a 50 year old man. A lot of forehead there.

Pasty complexion there as well. Not good in Australia. Plus she's a journalist. Not sure how to help her. I guess work with what you got. If she's got big boobs, maybe wear low cut shirts and show off them honkers and go in a bar with some Aussie construction workers. They'll make her feel pretty. Pretty sore anyway.

Can you cut a hole in the chute, and make a port to insert a garden hose nozzle to sluice it out? Back in the early years of the Toro Whirlwind walk-behind mowers, they added a cleanout port to the mower deck. Flip up a plastic cap, insert garden hose to the stop, and run mower until the water shed out the chute ran clear. It did an awesome job of keeping the deck underside clean.

As far as Skyrim goes, modding it with 700 mods was my latest project. Is a game unto itself.

Been playing Grim Dawn lately -- a top-down isometric hack and slash in the vein of Diablo. Overall very bored with gaming at all lately. Gardening and learning Spanish instead.

This is correct - he won re-election and his second term, if allowed to have happened, would never had have the same losers his first term started out with. Trump would have revamped what you see today, totally. But I think he would have still made hire mistakes, as is his want to do. And everyone here would have bitched.

DeSantis isn't cut from this mold...like Trump he knows clearly what he is up against, but I have to believe that, from what I have seen out of Florida, that Ron DeSantis will not make the mistakes that even a second Trump term would make...his hires will not run to leak bad things about DeSantis to the press or we'd have seen that already out of Florida.

knows clearly what he is up against, but I have to believe that, from
what I have seen out of Florida, that Ron DeSantis will not make the
mistakes that even a second Trump term would make...his hires will not
run to leak bad things about DeSantis to the press or we'd have seen
that already out of Florida.

The fact that all of this "holiday" shit has already been posted, printed, promoted?

Trump is a sure thing. Has gotten more accomplished than any President since Reagan. He has already proven himself in office. I like DeSantis too but let him prove himself as Vice President. I think we get one more shot at this, and I don't want to risk it on a dice roll.

402 > Tells you the whole damn thing is nothing more or less than just another "op", foisted on, prosecuted against and sentence laid upon the American People.

Maybe, but there really should be a major national holiday to celebrate the abolition of slavery. As a national turning point, and a moral turning point for the cause of liberty and equal justice, it's probably second in significance only to securing our independence. Certainly more important than, say, victory in WWI. And while there are other dates that could be chosen to celebrate the end of slavery, Juneteenth has the advantage of already being a thing (and not just in Texas, for a while now).

At any rate, anti-CRT people should claim it for their own, since it's a celebration of Democrats losing their ability to manipulate black people by deceiving them into thinking the institution of slavery still had power over them after it ceased to be true. If it happened once, it can happen again.

420 I've been thinking about this weird thing about CRT for a little while now. Does anyone remember a "very special" episode of Saved by the Bell about racism? The only other very special episode I remember is the one where Jessie gets addicted to caffeine pills...anyway back to the topic at hand. In this episode Jessie learns that her ancestors had slaves,freaks out, and apologizes to Lisa. Lisa says no big deal and we are not responsible for our ancestors. Has that episode been pulled yet? It's really a good one.

421 "At any rate, anti-CRT people should claim it for their own, since it's a celebration of Democrats losing their ability to manipulate black people by deceiving them into thinking the institution of slavery still had power over them after it ceased to be true. If it happened once, it can happen again."

It already has - black families have been ruined by replacing Fathers for dependency on the welfare state. They just chose one form of slavery over the other.

Normally I would agree with your point, but these days it reminds me too much of the "conservatives should embrace CRT, just not the radical parts" statement we get from the token WaPo "conservative". No offense intended, it's probably me just biased against anything resembling that because I'm frustrated.

Yeah that was a callback to highlight reel moments from the older games, it wasn't too rare to hit planes with AT rockets or use a .50 cal sniper to take out enemy pilots in BF2. The trailer for the new game recreates a lot of those iconic absurd moments, like ramming an ATV loaded with C4 into a heli, which was an incredbily common solution to dealing with tanks and helis in multiplayer.

There won't be any ray of sunshine "enlightening" the po masses that GLORAH!, they've been held down by (D) chains. Nope. The only way they view "victory" now, is to crush an (R) or Conservative Thing, at every turn.

The TV bosses have already taped the episodes. ABC has got one going tomorrow, with celebretards and Obummer hisself. Stuff that takes weeks, months in scripting, pre-production, production, taping, editing and post-production. Commercials aired and other campaigns to promote the show. All done LONG before the "holiday" as declared.

Posted by: TC


the loans and guarantees provided to the railroad companies caused bubbles and panics when the bubbles popped (see business cycles) and caused the railroads to go into bankruptcy, and need more funds from Congress to stay solvent. The one that didn't was James Hills' Great Northern, and the reason was that he didn't take subsidies beyond land grants.

However, the railroads did conspire with each other to fix rates and fees by creating pricing combines, and eventually got Congress to regulate them on fees and rates, because they couldn't even not cheat on each other by undercutting each others' arranged pricing.

Generally the state funding things distorts the market and causes serious issues. The roads will be built and probably will be better maintained than if the State does them.

Not as such, no.

However, in his race against death, he dictated his memoirs in the hope that the sales would provide for his family (Sam Clemens assisted with publication). He dictated until the throat cancer advanced so far that he could not longer speak. Then he wrote it himself. If you read his memoir, late in the work you can see his sentences get more terse. He finished three days before he died.

I scored a helluva Tobacco Brown leather sport coat at a San Antonio Chess King, 'bout then. The cut and fit was a direct rip from the Bill Blass catalog. Unusually conservative for a CK rack. But I got it at 75% off closeout, because of that. Early twenties and I weighed about a buck-sixty. Ten years later, I was buying hand-fitted Hart, Schaffner & Marx, and the fit of that sport coat was a long ago view in the rearview mirror of life.

I've got a Hein Gerke "Scout", three season motorcycle jacket with a better cut and more versatility than that.

And for WWII bomber authenticity, add in a Gerbing electrically heated suit, running through a thermostat off of the bike's 12vdc system. Suit, socks, gloves, collar and helmet liner. Toasty warm, even when riding through 17f New Mexico at Christmas.

Sorry, fail. You, not me. I was already a pretty accomplished leather worker by then. Holsters, Bible covers. Hand stitched, hand tooled. Leather, I knew, even then. The coat was real. And was very not typical Chess King. Cut, quality and detail, was way above CK.

Their buyers fk'd up, and I collected the benefit. Simple as that. Same time, I bought a Ski Jacket, zip out sleeves. Lasted nearly 20 years, it did. I shopped on the right day, I guess?

659 Speaking of low batteries - the wonky lawnmower should have battery load tested.

It is always the first thing to test, first place to start any serious troubleshooting with electrical problems, even if the battery "should" be good. Just because it reads 12.x volts doesn't mean much, it may be defective and choke under load. On the real modern cars and trucks, a defective or failing battery can cause really strange symptoms or faults.

My maternal Grandfather was a Banana Wars Marine. Nicuragua, mostly. He gave me the same advice as later warriors have given.

Don't make your bayonet "razor sharp" Too fine an edge, it'll fail in combat. It should be Chisel Sharp. SHARP, but a very blunt, 40 degree angle kind of edge. It'll cut, but it'll also endure the parry, counter, thrust and metal uniform items, and bone beneath.

Portland's riot cops quit en masse today, officially admitting there is no way out, Antifa has won. The FBI and leftist DC judges protect antifa as they openly break law after law. Thank the Soros political machine for those DA's.
I did laugh at Mayor Wheeler's texts, begging them to stay. Ted really must be THAT stupid after all. Heh.

Remember this is happening while hundreds of political prisoners are held in DC jail, the vast majority of them simply for expressing their 1st Amendment rights. And according to recent reports, the FBI actually were mostly ringleaders in getting some of the protesters to break past the shabby barriers and enter the capitol building, to create "the crime." Oh, and cover for Ashli Babbitt's murderer.

One thing I did do, is to get a local, known to us (highly vetted) cop, to teach about two hours on Weapons Retention.

Trump knew exactly what he was getting into, which makes his courage, in my estimation, even more admirable.

Keep in mind, he didn't have to run. He'd never held any public office, and he doesn't need the money. Playing golf at the course you own, hanging out with a beautiful family, that sounds like pretty good duty compared with dealing with outright idiots on a daily basis.

If you can short across the big posts on the solenoid (you must heve 12V on the battery side) and nothing happens, your starter isn't grounded somehow (very unlikely), or the starter probably has at least one bad winding or a loose brush.

Last month we did 1400 miles in the class A, all the driving was by myself. Much better to have another driver to trade off with.

BTW, know anyone interested in buying the class A? It runs great, as you know, and everything in it works perfectly. Only 57,000 miles on an engine that was designed for a quarter million or more.

Warroom Steve Bannon a little over a week ago, Tucker had a mention of it around then as well. Both undercover FBI agents, and CI's actively directed by their FBI handlers were the ringleaders.
The suppression of factual information by the FBI and DC police continues. This include around 14,000 hours of recordings collected and kept hidden. There is no reason to keep it from the public. Guessing it will exonerate most of those now rotting in DC jails and show the opposite of the official Progda narrative the last 6 months.
Honestly, I don't pay attention to these details as much as before the election, because Nov 3 Steal taught me the corruption is absolute, at the highest levels, and doing an imitation of a bug on a windshield won't change things.

Cap was right. I would take a named Revolver News report over a NYTimes or WaPo article for accuracy any day of the week. Everything written in a Progda outlet has to be considered suspect by now to any independent critical thinker.

745 "forged" and "fraudulent" are two (2) legal definitions. The FBI did some of one, and more of the other."

Yes this whole "memo to file" concept is so corruptible and should not be admitted in a court room. Too easy to deliberate fabricate your fresh "memory" of the meeting you just had.

I had the unfortunate encounter with this in the SCA (medieval re-enactment group) trying to out a Pedo Knight who was using his Knighthood as a prop to gain the trust of 12 year old girls to groom. Spoke several times with an SCA officer who was also a Public Defender in DC. She was part of the cover up.

She shot me an email afterwards and CC'd herself, and her email implied all kinds of things I didn't say, for example: asking her to lie in a courtroom to frame the guy, when I had never even mentioned taking this to court. It was all a fabricated memo to file that she intended to present if the SCA was ever sued.

But I went to their insurance company instead.

749 .44 Automag, as wielded by Dirty Harry in Sudden Impact

"Applied properly, with this gun I can erase the fingerprints". Something like that.

Beautiful looking gun. Needs special ammo (.44 AMP), of course, due to semi-auto requirements. The company only produced about 3k of these beauties in the early 70s before declaring bankruptcy. With additional monkeyshines, a total of about 9k were produced by 1983. Then they went silent, until 2015 when all rights/patents/etc etc were sold to another outfit, which is now making the gun again, under the AutoMag nametag.

773 7 million rounds of .22lr would weigh about 50k pounds, including packaging. That could easily fit on a 60' trailer. Actually, it could come close to fitting on a 20' shipping container. Weight is the most limiting factor here.

you could be right: i wasn't going to go out and get a brick to weigh. i just went with the first seemingly sane number i came across.

i would, however, point out that your weight number makes having a second trailer unnecessary. make of that what you will.
