The Saturday Night Joke

Biden finally breaks down and visits a remote northern native village. With news crews following him around as they tour the place, Biden asks the chief if there was anything the people need.

"Well," says the chief, "We have three very important needs. First, we have a medical clinic, but no doctor."

Biden whips out his phone, dials a number, talks to somebody for two minutes and then hangs up. "I've pulled some strings. Your doctor will arrive in a few days. Now what was the second problem?"

"We have no way to get clean water. The local mining operation has poisoned the water our people have been drinking for thousands of years. We've been flying bottled water in, and it's terribly expensive."

Once again, Biden dials a number, yells into the phone for a few minutes, and then hangs up. "The mine has been shut down, and the owner is being billed for setting up a purification plant for your people.

Now what was that third problem?"

"We have no cellphone reception up here," the chief says.

Thanksgiving is past and Christmas is right around the corner. As you might be aware,
The ONT Is Always Looking Out For YouTM

Why do frozen turkeys explode when deep-fried?

Deep-frying a turkey is a great way to get a delicious, moist meal for Thanksgiving. But this method of cooking can be a very dangerous undertaking.

Every fall, millions of dollars of damage, trips to the ER and even deaths result from attempts to deep-fry turkeys. The vast majority of these accidents happen because people put frozen turkeys into boiling oil. If you are considering deep-frying this year, do not forget to thaw and dry your turkey before placing it in the pot. Failure to do so may lead to an explosive disaster.

What is so dangerous about putting even a partially frozen turkey in a deep-fryer?

I am a chemist who studies plant, fungal and animal compounds and have a love of food chemistry. The reason frozen turkeys explode, at its core, has to do with differences in density. There is a difference in density between oil and water and differences in the density of water between its solid, liquid and gas states. When these density differences interact in just the right way, you get an explosion.

More Do's and Don'ts. Mostly Dont's.

The things I learn compiling an ONT. Dating slang terms.

If you’re dating in 2021, the first step is learning how to speak the language.

When you’re looking for love these days, it’s totally possible you might get breadcrumbed and orbited on your way to the soft launch. Have no idea what we’re talking about? Keep reading as we help you make sense of 10 trending dating terms you need to know to navigate your dating apps.

How close to a cousin to you have to be to borrow a sex toy? Close enough to be our Genius Award Winner.

A dispute over a borrowed sex toy ended with a Kentucky woman stabbing her male cousin with a kitchen knife, according to cops who arrested the alleged assailant on multiple criminal charges.

Police were dispatched late last month to a home in the city of Corbin after the occupant, Crystal Denham, called 911 to report that she had stabbed a relative.

Seen above, the 33-year-old Denham told officers that Michael Barton “had come to her residence and they had gotten into an argument over a sex toy,” according to a court citation. Specifically, Denham added, “she had borrowed it and he wanted it back.”

Sadly, the sex toy in question is not further described in the citation, which identifies Barton as Denham’s “cousin and neighbor.”

30 At least Hendryx didn't choke on somebody else's vomit.

"Greatest guitarist" in musical history? By whom? I think it's just the wankers at Rolling Stone. He was amazing, no doubt. Buddy Guy never saw the need to wear purple boas and all that stuff. Unfortunately a lot of the really good guitarists were session guys who didn't get a lot of recognition. Musical taste is subjective to some degree, I'm just saying I'm not even sure Hendryx rates in the top ten.

----------
For me Hendrix has to be in the Top 20, if not the Top 10, because of his energy and innovation in performance. He re-did "Along the Watchtower" to such an extent that Dylan has used his version in live shows for about 30 years now. But I always think of Hendrix as talent unfulfilled, because he died just as he was hitting his stride as a player. Like Clapton, if he had made it into the Seventies Hendrix would have grown and matured as a guitarist and composer, and rightly earned his status as a guitar god. Such is the fate of mortal Man.

116 Unfortunately a lot of the really good guitarists were session guys who didn't get a lot of recognition. Musical taste is subjective to some degree, I'm just saying I'm not even sure Hendryx rates in the top ten.

Posted by: Common Tater at November 27, 2021 10:09 PM (5cCew)

There is a reason for this. The good guitar players care about the guitar, the flashy players care about the flash. The good guitar players may never give a shit if they ever get to use "flash", because there is the guitar. There was one band I was in, and the other guitar player used to look in the mirror to see how a new guitar looked on him. I had never done that, ever. I look at a guitar on a wall and say yeah thats cool looking, how does it play? how does it sound? Etc. Deciding on a guitar by how it looks on me in the Mirror??? Duuuude, you're doing it wrong.

126 Portland police tactics are improving.

There's supposed to be a riot in a residential neighborhood of Portland tonight. It probably won't happen.

There are about eighty hard-core rioters left, and the cops know most of the cars that they use. The cops pull the cars over for traffic violations, safety violations, obscured or missing license plates, registration violations, etc., and write them up for hundreds of dollars in tickets.

A suburb of Portland started this a few weeks ago - Portland Antifa decided to wreak mayhem in the suburb, and the local cops smilingly followed them and used this tactic. One Antifaoid whined that he had picked up $300 in citations (followed by begging for money to pay the citations, of course).

Much more efficient than a line of riot cops.

Antifa is giving advice on how to deal with this new police tactic:

Just bringing this back up. If you drive to the march tonight you WILL be pulled over, harassed, and ticketed/fined. Park far away, walk in with a friend if you can. Wear full *new* black bloc in on your walk. They're using these events to gather intel. Don't let them identify u

Additionally, if you depart from the park in small groups(if the march doesnt materialize) cruisers will follow you with spotlights. don't lead them to your cars. Walking 5-10 blocks they should quit pursuing.

174 I'm just sayin' "best" musically speaking covers a lot of territory. It's one thing to say "Rock guitarist". Jerry Reed was really, really good, but he wouldn't qualify as "Rock" anyway.

Hendryx pioneered a lot of sound effects, incorporating a lot of then-new technology. And he was a good arranger insofar as he knew what he wanted. All Along The Watchtower is a good example. He only made maybe 3 albums? I always found them a little fatiguing. I'm sure he was something to see live. But as far as technical proficiency, I can think of a lot of really good guitarists. Some of the "top names" weren't nearly as good as the guys they were trying to imitate, but they sold a lot of albums.

Posted by: Common Tater at November 27, 2021 10:28 PM (5cCew)

yeah, its all crap. I use a way different criteria for judging players. Mostly, how are they live? Are they consistent, or are they just studio queens. Then there is how hard is their shit to play, is it hard because its a string of very fast well executed notes requiring actual dexterity, or is it just a flurry of mindless drivel thats fast but says nothing. If it's well executed do they play it consistent time and time again? I frigging hate when I hear a great lead in a studio recording and never hear it that way live. Then you have to separate song writing from song playing. There are dudes who write great, but can't play. You really need to look at a player overall.

218 Willowed re Sondheim:

I just read about a TV musical he wrote that aired on ABC Stage 67, called Evening Primrose.

It had a Twilight Zone-like plot about two young people living in a department store, yearning to see the outside world, and trying to avoid "the dark men." First aired in fall 1966 in color, and it's available on Amazon Prime Video today, but only in black and white as no one can find the original master videotape.

Anyway, sounds really interesting. Think I may watch the Amazon online video for $1.99.

I went over that pass during a snowstorm in a pt cruizer with chains. I gently slid into a snowbank only once while all-wheel-drive SUVs were going off the road right and left around me. I was one of the last vehicles through before they closed it. Many bad decisions led to that course of events, but I made it over and to my destination alive.

My only worse drive than that was through east Oklahoma during a blizzard on icy roads. Every single car that passed me ended up in a ditch. Often times just seconds after passing me. Also driving south out of Colorado in winter in a 4-Runner in white-out condition one time was bad.

It's a movie cliche but so many times in my life I have got to the end of a scary drive and had to pry my fingers off a steering wheel because I gripped it so hard my fingers became bonded to the synthetic rubber.

Segovia was something else. When I was learning classical guitar his was the style I paid attention to. He used to do this thing where instead of hitting a bass and melody note simultaneously as the music called for he had a slight delay, usually hitting the bass note first and then melody note. I'm talking a very short delay that sat right on the edge of note seperation, but it's there, and it added such a nice flavor to things. He was frigging great.

The heat of the cooking oil in the turkey fryer is well above the boiling point of water.
If part of the turkey is still frozen, immersed in that hot oil, it goes almost directly from ice to steam.
Steam (vaporized at heat from water) has about 282 times the volume of water.
So the turkey explodes, and blows a lot of that hot cooking oil all over the place.

The opera was a Sunday early evening. We were all out at the beach, Gulf of Finland, with russki friends. Hot summer day. Some drinking may have occurred. Way back, on the train, dying of thirst. And of course nothing to drink. Finally, some horrid salty Soviet mineral water (not the decent stuff from Borjomi). Was forced to drink it.

Remember arriving at the place late, past the overture even, and the standard-issue furious contemptuous looks from the usher-types as we barged right in and took our seats.

I think this is one of the big things I notice from when I was a young adult - for whatever reason, we had to go RIGHT NOW no matter the weather conditions. Blizzard or not. You'd proceed at a crawl, white-knuckling it but hell no, you wouldn't stop. A mere 400 more miles to go. Maybe we had to be back at work on Monday, or get to that legendary party that so-and-so always threw, or your leave was coming fast approaching it's end. You just did it.

Now, as an um, 29 yr old, I just say Fook It and don't go. Life is easier and maybe, just maybe, I got smarter.

Wanna really piss one off? Point out that Canada uses considerably more petroleum per capita than the United States.

Now, anyone who wasn't a total innumerate would just assume that to be the case given that Canada is a) cold and b) huge meaning a need for more a) heat and b) gasoline/diesel fuel.

But your typical ecohippie has this mental image of Canada as Our Socialist Wonderland To the North, with FREE HEALTH CARE and everything.

Severe cognitive dissonance sets in when you point out that they're bigger Gaia Rapers than we are.

In days gone by when they dug out the Beartooth highway in the Spring a local bar would carve a bar out of a snow bank and sell drinks. They only did it on the day the pass was opened into the North East entrance to Yellowstone Park. Sadly, it got shut down after a few years.

Used to ride with mom to drop dad off at the airport for his weekly sales trips; remember getting stuck at the double railroad crossing by Hopkins for interminable 4- and 5-engine trains.

Lastly, do not remember lots of snow, but the wind chill was amazing, often times 10-20 below zero.

422 400 Black ice is the seasonal joy of winter driving in the Greater Cincinnati area. It only looks clear on the overpass, in reality it's a slick road hazard. Sometimes used with a surface layer of slush or snow just to give the sucker a bit of hope.

Bridges/over passes are the worst for ice. And covered by the snow. The joys of winter driving.
---------
I have some less than fond memories of driving on Ohio roads when the roads were icy and ODOT hadn't got ahead of it yet. White knuckle bits while the car tires hummed like Luke Skywalker's landspeeder. I'd rather dry on 6 inches of unplowed powder, thank you very much. Seeing less fortunate vehicles suddenly spin around and out just added to things.

430 The funniest loss of control when driving came from a just damp road coming off of a big hill in north Atlanta. I was coming down the hill. I didn't think I was going fast but I was going into a turn and started breaking and there she went. I was spinning around and around but perfectly within the lane. And it was a divided road with little trees planted in the middle. I'm just spinning all the way down

So I'm enjoying the scenery in majestic live panorama when I swivel my head to watch a car come up on the other side of the divider. That's nice I thought to myself. And this person starts honking at me! Oh! Oh, I'm sorry is this not the spinning around and around area? I guess I'll just go straight then, thank you so much for letting me know. Eventually, before I got to the bottom the car just straightened out.

If she is your girlfriend, why would you ask for it back? Why is it 'yours'?

"Is this your crop or mine?" Sure, I can see that. But the other? Nah.

I can't say I'm especially longing to see him. And I don't know what I'd get if I could meet him. Sometimes he could be friendly, but I also remember what he was like angry, and that was quite scary.

I'd be good at this stage if I could just know what shape he's in. My family is resigned to the fact that we won't know he's even dead, until he's in the ground.

I called out the worst of the worst (gunshots in neighbor all week when I stepped outside) and some 24h/1200 days of certain sexual harassment and repetition as it has CRT burn in in my psyche and I would like my brain back please, I have to clean the trash and heal the burns, memory hole a lot, much like my rich history of past trauma ... which is what I need to deal with since my mind snapped open in public a couple weeks back. Frankly, for all that time I deserve millions of $$$. God knows that was the budget for me. Probably the most high value T in WI ... so I'm not sure why you think I suck??? Waking up my sisters baby to cough and then start screaming right after I warned her that was happening .. I'm working on my ACTUAL huge amount of traumatic experiences I kept in the deep despite RNM and voice for years. I would make a good POW as they didnt get my codes until my mind snapped (with a little help from my frenemies) then my life flashed before my eyes for 4 hours. I walked that LIVE for 3 WEEKS. I'm a HIGH level player.

554 USNtakim, some cigar geekery.

I think I've figured out why on so many sticks I'm getting harsh/char flavors towards the end: I'm so carefully avoiding "rushing" them, in order to avoid over-heating and getting bitterness and char, that they're going over an hour, resulting in ..... getting bitterness and char.

Seems like a decent theory anyway, and I believe I've read this from some experienced observers.

Today burned an Oliva Serie O robusto, solid mainstream mild/medium (construction was perfect, burn was ruler-straight most of the time, draw was easy). Mild and good .... for what turned out to be the first hour. Beautiful late afternoon, then black/orange sunset, quiet and perfect temperature. Did some Turkish coffee with it, which paired well.

558 CFO Mom, no worries, thanks for asking.

After walking out on my mom when I was 18 in 1984, my dad got married to his 'new' wife (with the same first name as my mom!) a few years later. My mother made it clear from the beginning that she wasn't willing to accept my dad's new life in any way, and was always devastated that my dad left her. She still is, and me and my sisters naturally took her side.

The result is that we're seen as the enemy by my dad's new family, to this day. They've never told us anything about what's happening with them and have always been incommunicado. Then about 20 years ago they moved to Lake Havasu City.

My sister a few years ago tried to reach out to my dad's wife on Facebook. Of course, 'new' wife reacted badly, as if nothing as changed. We just wanted to see if we could contact our dad again. After insulting my sister enough times, sister gave up.

My father will not initiate contact with anyone in any way (he's always been extremely tight-lipped) and basically spends his time these days, as far as we can tell, hiding behind his new wife/family. We can't figure out how to get past them to him, short of showing up at his house.

Not necessarily a bad thing, I've stopped going to certain types of places. A good friend suggested that it is prudent to:
Don't go to stupid places.
Don't hang out with stupid people.
Don't do stupid things.
Since I've stopped doing stupid things I haven't gotten into trouble for any stupid thing. Go figure.
---------
Well, I'd put up with a few stupid people and a grouchy pancreas to have a bartender like that. But you're still right, cutting back on bar-hopping and strip club visiting has reduced the level of stupidity in my life. Now if I could only have to stop driving on I-75, I-275, and I-675....

=========
Well....I might have done that a time or two when I was 29, give or take a few years. Not too often, usually after midnight I was trying to finish a chapter or two in my latest book/fan fic or watch another episode of my favorite anime before hitting the sack. I saw enough of a couple of bars late at night to make me think the Mos Eisley Cantina was not the scariest place around.

Not good plain cheaper cigars are now much better. Switched away from soaked cedar to just a shot glass of makers mark and 70% bovedas . its a glass top humidor that never held good rh.

Do you know your father's address in Lake Havasu? If so, take a weekend, and just drive over there and drop in. It's only a couple of hours further than Laughlin. And, even if you don't believe it to be true, take some blame yourself for the breakdown in communications between you and him.

Interesting about your infusion experiment. Down the road I'll probably try it, with rum.

The Boveda recharging experiment seems to be going well. If you start when a pack is about 2/3 done - not wait until it's rock hard - then really you're just duplicating its normal working environment, where it absorbs as well as emits.

Turns out a local store has a rum "on sale" - only $1,200 instead of $1,500.

But there's an interesting twist. It's rum that was in stock at the end of the Royal Navy's grog ration, which happened in 1970. So, "surplus" rum I guess.

So what's going on in this ONT...big boobed bartendress, dildos in the dishwasher (cousins involved no less, would Grandma be proud they share?), black ice and heavy snow/bad road conditions.

Yep sounds about normal.

Amen.

Hey, isn't it quite funny how this new omicron variant came out of nowhere with a coordinated media panic, stock market shitting the bed, and a new "emergency" decree from the "actually worse than Cuomo" governor of NY? Right on the day after Thanksgiving. And what's this about how the closest genetic lineage for this variant was last in the wild back in April of 2020? Weird how it just disappeared from then until now, and then came back with a shit-ton of mutations on the spike that are needed to completely evade the mRNA shot.

Don't believe in "ops" kids, those are totally just crazy conspiracy theories.

Oh yes, I've been reading about Moronic(that's what I'm calling it, too much fun to resist being an anagram). They are shitting their pants over this, and I was wondering why. I'm mean shitting their pants, the public health lunatics.

And then I read why. A while back some bunch did some GOF-like experiments where they induced mutations into the Coof spike to see which ones might evade various antibodies.

Guess what, Moronic has a near full complement of these mutations, and they are scared shitless about that.

Add the possibility of ADE in the jabbed with this thing, and that's why they are going nuts.

The mRNA vaccines (pfizer and moderna) and the Jansen and Astra Zenica (mDNA) vaccines are supposed to tell your body to make a pathogen (spiked protein) to stimulate anti-body response. So tell me, I have thought about this; are these evasive virus strains only having changes in the virus coat (ie, the spiked protein coat) and NOT the nucleocapsid part, the ACTUAL virus that is contained in the spiked protein?
So since I have had Covid19 and appear to have long lasting T and B cell response to the actual virus, does this make any difference to me, or to anyone else that has actual acquired immunity?

669 >> and NOT the nucleocapsid part, the ACTUAL virus that is contained in the spiked protein?

The N-proteins are very highly conserved. You can't change too much there without rendering the virus inoperative. And that's why natural immunty targets that -- your immune system knows what it's doing.

Natural immunity has held up very well to all the variants. It's not perfect. There have been few reinfections, but as yet not documented case of a reinfection resulting in death.

Is is possible to evade the N-antibodies? Yes. Does Moronic do it? Don't know, not enough data. So far, the only data is it appears to be less virulent than anything before. Mild symptoms report the South African doctors.

Logically, the vaccines put pressure on changes in the protein coat (spiked protein) to mutate and evade, and not the nucleocapsid portion, the actual virus.
So thus, natural immunity should protect from the actual virus, even with the various "mutations" that we have been warned about. As you say, the N-proteins can't change TOO much, or it ceases to be a viable virus.
And lastly, have you seen the information (I'm sure you have) from the UK? The vaccinated are dying at a faster rate than the unvaccinated. There are theories that the vaccines, and the results of the vaccines, are now suppressing the T-cell response.

Oh yes -- reading that stuff like a lunatic, I am. Are you talking about the all-cause mortality figures? There was a bit of a SImpson's Paradox effect going on there, because the "vaccinated" cohort skews much older.

Matthew Crawford did a detailed analysis of it, correcting for that skew. The result was there was no difference between the two groups. That is, overall, the vaccines have no effect on all-cause mortality. Whatever few they save from death from Coof, they kill with AEs.

Another interesting thing from the UK data is the cohort of the "single jabbed". These are indeed showing a wildly elevated all-cause mortality.

How do you get in the single-jabbed category? You have a very bad reaction to the first shot, so bad ain't no way in hell you're gonna take another shot.

I had read somewhere that the secret to May's tone, was that his pick was a hammered flat, copper pfennig coin, rendered into a suitable shape for a pick.

It produced a noticeably sharper attack on the strings than did a plastic pick, which carried through the pickups and on through the rest of the system all the way to the speakers.

Berserker.. a pfennig for your thoughts?
