Friday Night Insanity

So, did anyone notice something called “Chris Chan” trending today? I had no idea what it was all about, so I poked around. Yeah, that was a mistake. This may be the most screwed up individual on the planet. Do yourself a favor and avoid finding out about him. Just to give you a clue, this headline isn't even in the same ballpark of insanity:

Are radar detectors still a thing?

Detectors.jpg

They were a big deal back in the 80s. I even had one (Escort, with the big orange light), though I don't know if it actually saved me any tickets. Funny thing is, I haven't had one in decades, and I still don't get many tickets.

15 So...okay, half of Che's posts these days are nerd and geek shit and he's the largest contributor of views to Diversity and Comics.

So I watch him and a few others that are amusing and somewhat intelligent culture warriors. Currently everyone is up in arms about the new He-Man animated series. I've learned that first they killed He-Man and then turned Teela (the token girl of the series) into the star and made her a giant lezzie cvnt. I also learned it's written by Kevin Smith of Clerks/Nallrats/Jay and Silent Bob fame.

I have no interest in this series. Don't care. But I can't help but wonder. A Teela centric Masters Of The Universe series written by Kevin Smith.

Does she suck 36 dicks?

26 I know the Olympics have generally been for sh*t this year, but I will cop to enjoying the swimming events. Caleb Dressel and Katie Ledecky have both been fun to watch, and they at least seem like decent normal people.

And they give the NBC airheads something to talk about other than how stunning and brave Simone Biles is for quitting.

Posted by: Dr. T at July 30, 2021 09:14 PM (Vgw1E)

27 I mentioned this earlier, but it cracks me up. Daily Mail on line has an article fretting about the Olympics' viewing numbers, and trying (really, really hard!) to figure out why this is. Because they've been delayed a year? Because there's no live audience?

It's hilarious. Especially since all the thousands of comments say, "Get woke, go broke, you idiots."

That isn't true. LIDAR is hard to beat but conditions have to be perfect. You rarely encounter it.

Ka band still rules the day, and a good radar detector will protect you from it.

It says "events were marketed to adult male participants." So I did an internet search for "Barnstable County gay". I think I see why it was a super-spreader event.

1. She really is the GOAT.
2. She got to Tokyo and immediately had the press in her face talking non stop about her past sexual abuse.
3. BLM has been harassing her non stop to take a knee.
4. And this is the biggest. She dropped out because she's scared as fuck. I saw her in prelims and she was off. That first vault in the team final, shit. You could see it in her eyes. She was terrified.

What happens is you get confused between one twist, one and a half, two, three, one flip, three flips. Your spacial awareness is gone. And then it's fucking dangerous. You literally get lost in mid air. It's happened to me before. It's scary.

But y'all are the experts.

No. She's "gay" as in there is a sidekick girl that is her friend. But they never say that they're girlfriend's but its heavily implied, and they have pretty much admitted it was gay-baiting. ClownfishTV and I think others have guessed that the second 5 episodes are going to end with Teela becoming sorceress and her girlfriend gets to become the new "He-man" because she'll be the descendant of King Grayskull.

Posted by: buzzion at July 30, 2021 09:26 PM (vMCab)

68 Yes, the Chi-Com Coof discussions are tedious and stressful and sucked all the air out of the planet. Still.

I have some ideas about what's going on, that can be inferred mostly from political realities. The gubbmint can and does require immunizations, for vaccines that are FDA approved. Not experimental stuff. But they claim they can anyway right now.

The reason they can require immunizations is due to legislation signed by Shrub. Called "PREP" or somesuch. In the event of a Bioweapon attack. Sound familiar?

Now for political reasons, they really don't want to invoke that publicly. So it would be really convenient to get FDA approval - and skirting inconvenient questions. But, the data coming in isn't looking too great for the Coof Vax. The potential at least, for a complete debacle is there, and this means Ixnay on the Approval.

So they are in a really bad negative feedback loop right now, trying to figure out how to square that circle. And Blame Trump, etc.

When you try to look up Prince Harry's quote about the First Amendment (they say he said it's "bonkers" - but it's not exactly clear *what* he was saying), all you find are article after article proclaiming how upset it made "right wingers". How "right wingers" seized, etc.

There was of course a time when Freedom of Speech supposedly meant something to all of us. That "journalists" feel comfy defining it as only being a "right wing" thing is at once curious, alarming, and not at all surprising.

How did Alice recognize words she has never heard spoken? From what I understand on the implants is that if installed much later from when someone becomes deaf, the brains loses the ability to process sounds. From the story, Alice never heard sounds before.

Probably. I could be wrong, but I think Biles realized (or was told) that if she quit the team event but then went on to compete in the individual events and win, it would look like she'd thrown her teammates under the bus and ruin that "GOAT" talk. Now that a few days have gone by, she *might* be able to claim she's recovered enough to compete, but I doubt she will.

95 How did Alice recognize words she has never heard spoken? From what I understand on the implants is that if installed much later from when someone becomes deaf, the brains loses the ability to process sounds. From the story, Alice never heard sounds before.
Posted by: Reuben Hick

The way I understand it - and trust me, I might be way off base with this - is some deaf folks 'hear' the specific vibrations that the spoken word generates even while non-hearing. Thus, when they do gain hearing, their brains compare the known vibration signature with that of the (newly) spoken version and match them up with pretty fair accuracy. Of course they then learn to recognize the spoken word.

Nurse, I realized yesterday you are not referring to my own "Simone Hate" (or at least I don't think you are) and I would never presume to stand in your or her shoes... however I am judging her solely on her bs comments about blm riot protests vs the ones about Trump supporter protests.

I'm allowed to hate on her for that, without speaking against anything you are talking about. Shit, I'm allowed to hate on it all and just call her a "quitting bitch", but I'm genuinely trying to be fair and kind here.

I don't like what she said, because she is exactly what we are up against in a very lopsided fight... and because of it, and until she changes her mind about us vs them, she can fuck off for all I care.

My position is that I know fuck all about gymnastics except that it's impossible, and the Ozzy Man video of the gymnast girl (bofa).

112 63. Nurse ratched. If Biles has had some kind of breakdown or mental block then go home. What is pissing people off is the drama of will she compete or not, oh no not today. Maybe tomorrow. She is messed up and this is only putting her on display and turning her situation into a media gawk fest. If USA gymnastics actually cared about they would get her on a plane with one of the cadre of shrinks accompanying the team and get her home into proper care.

I don't have anything against her, and she is genuinely a great gymnast. And I can't pretend to know what led to her quitting the team competition. But what you're describing sounds like something a lot of gymnasts, her teammates included, have experienced from time to time. If she suffers a mental collapse because of that and can't compete, she probably shouldn't be there in the first place.

Or possibly I'm just a jackass. Either way, I wouldn't react to it so strongly if not for the sports commentators saying that her pulling out just proves how great she is.

Let me go full KOOK. This is literally the Kill Shot. Pixy prevents me from elaborating. Fauchi told us a few years ago that this would be unleashed in the next term. It was. It wasn't fully baked, but like most products the window of opportunity was closing.

Everything they have been doing to date has been in anticipation of a very low population world. Installed Wind and Power doesn't need millions of people around the globe to support production (unlike petro, nuclear, etc.) More food production is become automated (e.g. fake meat) and greenhouse - again far fewer people needed to make it. The hope for mRNA medicines is supposed to be a broad-spectrum against many diseases - again, fewer workers. EV vehicles don't need a skilled labor and technical force to operate and maintain. They aren't expanding anything. No new dams, no new roads, nothing one would do to anticipate and support a growing or even stabilized population.

They want us dead, and have been working hard to replace people with machines for decades.

The general consensus (and mine) was that she believed all her press clippings, and didn't train as much as maybe she should have.

Plus the added pressure of being the media's darling, this go-round. (Although she brought it on herself, with the GOAT thing)

So when she bobbled the vault, she threw a tantrum, rather than take responsibility for having a bad performance. It made it a lot harder for the three others, because they usually rotate events, but the other three now had to compete in all events.

And Simone is the captain.

However, in 2013 more than 2,700 tons of the chemicals were unloaded from a Russian cargo ship. Many officials in Lebanon have privately said they believe a lot of the shipment was stolen.

I’ve seen the movie a couple of times, but that’s not how I remember it. Back when Smith was slightly less insane (or insane in a difficult direction) he ran a discussion board for fans, which I took part in a lot. It was a great place, and after its demise I didn’t take part in any regular online groups until I discovered the AOSHQ.

But Smith’s was one of those boards that has a specific number of posts per page. His was set to 37. If your post was a multiple of 37, you were sort of willowed.

180 Simone Biles is the most decorated and arguably the most popular gymnast in history. Shes often been known to use her massive platform to speak out on the issues that matter the most to her. Right now that includes the Black Lives Matter movement and the killings of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Ahmaud Arbery.

We tried peaceful protesting. Then Colin Kaepernick he lost his job. He lost his career. They took his whole entire career away from that poor man.

This isnt the first time Biles has publicly supported Kaepernick, the former NFL quarterback who has been without a job since he was criticized for kneeling during the national anthem in protest of police violence against Black people. When then newly installed USA Gymnastics president, Mary Bono, criticized Nike for including Kaepernick in a campaign in a now deleted tweetBiles was quick to call her out. (Bono eventually resigned.)

THIS is why she can go fuck herself. I could care less if she competes.

" Findings: Significant rise in NT50s was seen in serums on day 28 post-1st dose. A moderate inverse correlation was seen between NT50s and ages, but no correlation was seen between NT50s and AEs. NT50s and IgG levels on day 28 post-1st dose and pain scores following the 2nd shot were greater in women than in men. The average half-life of neutralizing activity in the vaccinees was approximately 67.8 days and the average time length for their serums to lose the detectable neutralizing activity was 198.3 days. While serums from elite-responders (NT50s>1,500-fold: the top 4% among all participants' NT50s) potently to moderately blocked the infectivity of variants of concerns, some serums with moderate NT50s failed to block the infectivity of a beta strain.

If BNT162b2-elicited immunity memory is short, an additional vaccine or other protective measures would be needed."

275 The Federal Bureau of Investigation released a new report into the devastating blast in Beirut last year, which confirmed the massive explosion was only part of the total cargo initially unloaded at the port. Reports on Wednesday detailed the FBIs statement that said more than 550 tons of ammonium nitrate exploded in the city on Aug. 4.

However, in 2013 more than 2,700 tons of the chemicals were unloaded from a Russian cargo ship. Many officials in Lebanon have privately said they believe a lot of the shipment was stolen.

What does that mean? The Japs found that the Pfizer's vaccine's neutralizing antibodies have a half-life of 68 days, and neutralizing levels are down to nothing detectable after 198 days.

Only if there is sufficient "memory" will they still be effective. Otherwise, boosters or "other measures" will be needed.

Not as much goobledygook to quote, but here is the money quote:

"We conclude that memory antibodies selected over time by natural infection have greater potency and breadth than antibodies elicited by vaccination.

You can’t copyright titles, and the characters are extremely different. DC’s Captain Marvel was the first, and not originally a DC character: DC bought the smaller company that published him. (That is a story on its own.)

Marvel Comics wasn’t even called Marvel when the first Captain Marvel was published.

they're allowed their asthma meds in Japan tho.

I don't know if they sell amphetamines OTC there honestly I just know they disallowed people from the US to bring their Adderall and similar into Japan. that's all I've got.

432 The general consensus (and mine) was that she believed all her press clippings, and didn't train as much as maybe she should have.

Plus the added pressure of being the media's darling, this go-round. (Although she brought it on herself, with the GOAT thing)

So when she bobbled the vault, she threw a tantrum, rather than take responsibility for having a bad performance. It made it a lot harder for the three others, because they usually rotate events, but the other three now had to compete in all events.

And Simone is the captain.

Spot on, as usual Farmer.

Everything old is new again, so to speak. A television series called Mad Men kind of sparked interest in old cocktail culture and a lot of the classics are back in fashion. I'd say if I put you behind the bar, you could still sling drinks with the best of us.

Some of the ones you don't recognize are "modern classics" according to the mixology world. Frankly, I find them weird, just bartenders lumping together combinations. The Paper Plane, for instance, has both Aperol and Amaro Nonino in it. What is the point of the Aperitivos in the same cocktail? So you can make it taste doubly medicinal?

Silliness.

443 The general consensus (and mine) was that she believed all her press clippings, and didn't train as much as maybe she should have.

Plus the added pressure of being the media's darling, this go-round. (Although she brought it on herself, with the GOAT thing)

So when she bobbled the vault, she threw a tantrum, rather than take responsibility for having a bad performance. It made it a lot harder for the three others, because they usually rotate events, but the other three now had to compete in all events.

And Simone is the captain.

I had a bride-to-be in a bachelorette party come up to me while I was strolling around in Buckhead once. She asked for help for her party's scavenger hunt.

The item they needed was an underwear tag and I guess I looked like the kind of guy that could part with an underwear tag. The operation involved the bride-to-be giving me a wicked wedgie, nearly pulling me up off my feet while five of her friends wrapped their arms around me holding me down.

But she was very determined and got her tag. I think she had the back of my boxers above my shoulder blades before the tag came off.

I had one of those the other day, poor kid, I told her that I could tell she was in a call center job and that sort of job is a soul killer, and making cold calls was a terrible way to make a living.
she said I was right
So I told her I really didn't want what she was selling, and I hoped she had a better day.

Kids in call centers are living miserable lives, every call is a cold call and every cold call is a potential land mine.

Umbrage can neither be created nor destroyed, only changed in form.
When we use umbrage, it is not destroyed but rather enters a more disordered state.

Good for you, I'm really suspicious of anyone putting a kid on a drug like this at such a young age. I doubt they have taken it themselves and have any idea how it may impact various people.

My own experience...I started it about a year ago at 64, to help me focus. J has been saying for years I need it.

It does help me, but I'm taking it at a lower rate than prescribed. I'd never recommend this for a developing child, let them grow up and then figure it out.

It is a really effective anti-nausea med, that has no serious side effects . . . beyond causing birth defects (Phocomelia).

What is odd is that it is not itself teratogenic, it affects the pathways for the development of arms and legs, and IIRC it is dependent on how robust the pathway is. So only some children were affected due to their genetic makeup. Not that it isn't a tragedy all the way around.

670 I seem to recall adderall, or ritalin maybe, used to be prescribed like Candy for a while. Some kids need it, or are prescribed some things legitimately, but it wasn't even close.

It may have something to do with school systems more or less treating Males generally as nothing more than defective Females. Boys raised by Women is not healthy for a society. This is a feature, not a bug, in their eyes. I also seem to recall that one, or maybe both, of those drugs ever being prescribed in the past was a disqualification for anybody wanting to join the military.

I also remember my brother's wack job wife wanting to get social security disability for her youngest. Bright kid, smart and engaging. But ... she wanted that $$, getting a diagnosis for ADHD or whatever it's called, was a hobby for a lot of parents. Again, I'm not arguing this affliction doesn't exist ... but there's a lot of pharma-wankery going on.

There's some kind or style of dry white wine that has a strong butter taste. I like only that one. I've read that it's considered a negative by connoisseurs and wines are actually destroyed/thrown out when the maker detects the flavor's presence. I don't know anything about wine but I like cab sav red or that buttery white if I know how to get it which I generally don't.

We found out the next day it wouldn't go into the VCR because it already had a tape in it. That ended my foray into PCP.

If you see a bottle of Ferrari-Carano Reserve Chardonnay, purchase it. Disregard that the operation looks like a Hefner money-grab; enjoy the gardens at the site if you get there, they're really well done. The Reserve chardonnay is one example of what you're looking for.

725 There's some kind or style of dry white wine that
has a strong butter taste. I like only that one. I've read that it's
considered a negative by connoisseurs and wines are actually
destroyed/thrown out when the maker detects the flavor's presence. I
don't know anything about wine but I like cab sav red or that buttery
white if I know how to get it which I generally don't.

Posted by: banana Dream at July 30, 2021 11:17 PM (2xiYd)

Chardonnay used to be known as buttery, mainly CA Chardonnay. It has that intrinsic quality from the yeast etc but also much of it comes from the barrels. I know there is a brand called "Butter" that is pretty popular. I haven't had it but there is a good chance you will like it. For sure there are others of varying prices. You might want to try a legit French Chablis just to compare them. With Chablis there is no oak, so it is much more racy and acidic. It is great with shell fish.

And you are right, there is also a wine "defect" that gives off a buttery note. I think it occurs in beer as well.

756 "Buttery" flavors are sometimes from Diacetyl, probably a cogener or whatever it's called from the fermentation process. Considered a defect in most beer and wine, I expect. Not always.

The Krauts make excellent wine. Beer drinkers believe it or not are sort of looked down upon over there. Low brow, or with a bit of disdain. This is what I was told by an ex-pat who taught a week long orientation program for newly stationed .mil personnel.

777 Not an anesthesiologist. In the bad old days we used to do cardiac procedures without an anesthesiologist present. Ketamine could be given intramuscularly (didn't require an IV which was sometimes challenging in toddlers), didn't suppress breathing. didn't alter cardiac parameters and knocked the kids out for a predictable length of time. Nowadays, an anesthesiologist is present for all such.

Funny you ask. The ex-wife of the suspected killer recently reached out to us via e-mail (from the Curious Disappearance blog). So far she has not revealed anything we didn't know already, and she has been a little cagey, but she did acknowledge that she thinks it very likely that he killed my F-I-L. She snuck out in the middle of the night with her two kids because she feared for her own life. This was years before Seamus disappeared.

The reality is Chard is the most noble white wine in existence. There is a reason it is the wine of Chablis, Burgundy, and even Champagne. I personally like the obscure whites from islands such as Sardinia, Crete, Corsica and Sicily. There are also some really good ones from the Basque region of Spain.

834 That green post got to me real hard. This morning I had cochelar implant surgery. I'm not like the young lady as in deaf from birth. My hearing deteriorated gradually over 30 years of wearing hearing aids. When it reached the point that I could comprehend just twenty to twenty five percent of what was in a normally noisy room, it was time to get a cochlear implant. The only person I knew or knew of who'd had one was Rush Limbaugh. I tease my progressive kids that I'll be channeling messages from El Rushbo through the implant. You have to heal from the surgery for about a month before they fit the sound processor and "turn it on". But as the young lady--and her new fiance know, it can be a life changing event. May they have a long and happy life hearing and listening to each other.

Ambien puts me right out. If I'm lucky. If I'm not lucky, I'm sitting in bed watching cartoon characters climb out of the walls while I have conversations with my wife that I don't remember. I don't take Ambien anymore.

that is a good way to pick your kind. I remember a funny episode of one of the Anthony Bourdain shows. He was interviewing two people and trying to decide whether to take his show to the regions they cared about. One question to one guy was his opinion of Apocalypse Now. The guy said he had never seen it and Bourdain said, "that is going to be a problem". That was funny as Hell because it was so arbitrary. But you have to respect someone standing by his principles.

I can't do the superman flying thing because my subconscious takes over and says nah bro, its a dream, people can't fly, so it sticks me in a plane. Even in a dream that seems so real one little detail will trigger the subconscious. Its very, very rare where I'll wake up and say damn, it was a dream. Thee most fucked up dream I ever had was when I was in my 20's, we got done with a show early, because it was a multi band show, and it was 1 am. Somebody gave me a hit of acid, and I said hmm never did this before, lets see what the hubbub is about, and never did that again, because I went to bed an hour after, and had a dream that I can only describe as a cross between clockwork orange, caligula, and willy wonka's frigging chocolate factory. The wall full of tits was the giveaway, and my subconscious said nah bro, wake up, there are no walls like that. lol

One went straight to sleep which worried me. I could hear the big boy snoring loud but to ease my fear I just laid down on the floor with him with my hand on his chest so I could feel him breathe. He was just fine. The other walked over to a wall and sat there staring at the wall for 45 minutes. The funniest thing. Sometimes her head would turn at an angle and she would growl but otherwise just staring at that damn wall.

It's only happened to me once in 2005. As it was the first and only time I had no clue what the freak was happening. I woke up in middle of the night and couldn't move or speak. If I had to guess it lasted about a minute. I was told that the paralysis was what occurred when you were dreaming to prevent you from hurting yourself as a result of your dreams. Sometimes you come out of your REM sleep before the paralysis turns off.

If so it's scary, It would happen a few times a year, and sometimes twice in the same week.

She may be a great gymnast, but she probably could use a strong dose of humility. Does she appreciate how privileged she is to be one of the elite athletes? She probably has little awareness of how the 'little people' live. A few years working in a factory, waiting on tables, slinging lunch meat in a deli, or driving a forklift in a warehouse would probably be good for her, assuming she can even *perform* those jobs.

I slept walked once when I was a kid in 1969. I had the Hong Kong flu and was in my parents bed asleep with super high fever. I was dreaming that my father was in trouble in our front yard and I had to get to him ASAP. My parents found me in the front of our house yelling for my father. Apparently I had opened their bedroom window that had been painted shut for years and crawled out and ran to the front of our house. Two grown men couldn't have opened that window much less an 8 year old.

He and I did a small hike a month ago with some Cubbies he works with. 1.8ni, about 100' change in elevation. It damn near killed me and embarrassed the crap outta me. Like I've been sedentary all during Corona or something..... That was my wake up call.

Next week I'll double the distance and throw on a backpack with a gallon of water for weight. Jeep growing from there. Hit real trails once the heat breaks in the fall.

915 Biles - Was flipping channels today and saw a listing for a documentary/biography about Biles, BASED ON HER BOOK. WTF?
She
may be a great gymnast, but she probably could use a strong dose of
humility. Does she appreciate how privileged she is to be one of the
elite athletes? She probably has little awareness of how the 'little
people' live. A few years working in a factory, waiting on tables,
slinging lunch meat in a deli, or driving a forklift in a warehouse
would probably be good for her, assuming she can even *perform* those
jobs.
I get the impression that she is not a nice person. I hope I am wrong.

She needs a couple-three shifts at Bojangles, rolling biscuits. She'd fit right in. Most of them have mental issues, too.

927 I have hallucinated twice, neither time from drugs. First was standing in class-A's, in Missouri, in July, staring at a brick wall for an hour. Saw a leprechaun appear. No gold. Second was a week after a concussion i don't know how i didn't pass out from. Stuff looked like "the crystalline entity". Neither acid nor shrooms (nor both, lol) gave me the same quality of visuals.

951 "People also stayed up later on past ONTs."

I think that's because the internet was different, it was better. There were so many new writers with meat on the bone. It was like clubbing in Los Angeles - Ace was the pub you always ended the night at.

I've been coming here almost since it opened. Ace and Insty were my daily newspapers. This place felt more like a home to me but I didn't dive into the comments, way too many. I remember reading through a thread one night and looking up to see that 3 hours has passed LOL that's all the time I used to have for evening entertainment.

Only reason I'm here in the comments now is because of Insty letting Driscoll rub our noses in Treacher filth everyday. It got to be too much, and it destroyed his credibility with me. I don't care about opposing viewpoints, even NeverTrumpers, but if you reward treachery you'll get more of it.

So anyways, there are less good "clubs" out there to visit. And some old favorites sold out. So I think the crowd is winding down at 12am instead of slinking back here from Powerline and Captain's Quarters at 4am.

954 "Lucid dreaming" is a real kick! It's like-- you're IN the dream, but you know it's a dream and so you *know* you can do anything you want in there... May help open the door later, to being able to take over while dreaming.
Posted by: JQ, a hick in the sticks at July 31, 2021 12:38 AM (dB4Iz)

I've done that! I wish I could get it back but I lost the ability, I think(?) it was because I was doubling a vitamin, I'll have to try it again till I remember which one.

It was like a half-sleep. I was aware I was asleep and dreaming, and I had control over where the dream went.:

"We're in a casino in Havana? Okay, that's Audrey Hepburn over there isn't? Why yes it is. Did she just wink and smile at us? Why yes she did. Let's go over and see her!"

The tricky part (for me at least) was that you have to maintain a "loose" grip on it. Focus too much and you wake up. Focus too little and you fall into slumber.

So good luck with you attempts.

Posted by: nurse ratched at July 30, 2021 10:55 PM (U2p+3)


I agree - she was a spectacular athlete.

I don't think that she will ever get back in the game, though. I think she hit the age where she realizes the danger in the sport. As you said, she looked terrified she she "lost" that vault. You don't come back from that - the drive for self-preservation trumps all after a certain age, and I think she's there.
