4 If I may be indulged to interrupt the flow with my wailing--

Google has cancelled the Mindful Webworks YouTube account for some unspecified violation of their policies or rules.

I've got hundreds (?) of videos of mine that no one ever sees, and playlists of my and others' videos, and a huge YouTube subscription list. I sure hope that's not all gone.

Why? F if I know. I don't do anything lately but watch videos; haven't uploaded any in a while. I very rarely even comment.

Write your congresscritter... no, visit your local Goolag YouTube store and register a complaint about the banning of ... somebody... who was it? Never mind. Here's a kitty vid!

Or Portland, where leftists are furious that the incredibly overstretched Portland cops don't respond when stuff gets stolen from their house, their car gets stolen, etc.

This proves two things to them:

1) That the cops are "on strike", because they're not responding to calls
and
2) This shows that Portland doesn't need police.

Workers in nuclear power plants are supposed to get considerably less than a rem's worth of radiation a year (a very low dose).

Very cool! I think there's some provision in the vanity call rules for cases like yours, where there's a family relationship between the applicant (you) and the previous holder of the call (Papa Basura), but I don't remember how it works. Maybe they waive the normal two year period that a call must be unassigned before it can be granted as a vanity call.

If the call is still "active" you have to provide proof of the claimed relationship and provide a death certificate. Papa Basura's call has been inactive since sometime in the late 1960's or early 1970's, so I may not have to jump through that particular hoop.

92 One of the many lessons of the Uke war is if the enemy can see you, the enemy can kill you.

The Ukes took out a few ships with missiles thanks to our intel, and I've seen videos of the Russians taking out Uke tanks/APCs in the middle of cities just like we did in Iraq.

Posted by: nerdygirl at September 30, 2022 10:06 PM (+lVUW)

Once you get fairly proficient at crochet try knitting again. The handling of yarn and tension with crochet is a synergistic skill with knitting. I was WAAAkYY too tight starting with knitting. A couple years with crochet and it was a lot easier. Also try different needle material types. Wooden / bamboo is grippy and can help if you have issues where your tension is too loose. If you're too tight go with slicker metal types. Also look at learning the Continental "pick" technique vs. British "throw" method usually taught to beginners.

I really enjoy knitting and crochet. Great useful skills to learn.

I was once touring a nuclear power plant, looked down at the cooling pool, and went through the same calculation - that you would have to swim way, way down in the pool before you got a serious radiation dose.

I would imagine the Nyquil Chicken set is too afraid of radiation to give this a try even if they legally could.

205 Bunch of guys I did some sports with, were excited about getting together to watch "pro" wrestling. I didn't get it ... one guy, serious job, just kinda laughed it off.

Forget his exact explanation, but basically, like soap operas, they get into it.

Going back to my high school years, kids on the street playing basketball, my good friend just couldn't miss his soap opera. idk ... weird, but it seems to be a more dominant part of (average?) human nature than "we the AoS Erudits" would hope for. (I don't remember the noun form of erudite, but maybe it is erudit?)

same with anime, but maybe I just don't comprehend the concept of living to attain some altered (physical) state. I certainly don't have IT all figured out, so maybe it is only about strange sex and altered state experiences ... and peyote? to reach the ultimate?

heh ... I'm trying to stick with the fundamentals, but also to build on them, instead of being stuck in "childish ways". But those with family and military experience, or whatever, probably have deeper enlightenment, in some ways at least. But every man is right in his own eyes .. that is as deep as I can get ... lol.

I remember one saying there was a factory where they suspiciously eyed but did not approach a collection of barrels near one entrance. When they checked their badges later ..... bad.

And then there were the remote weather stations that were run off some radioisotope power. Naturally they'd lost track of them down in the Caucasus, and there were fears they'd make good dirty bomb fixin's, so a minor and brief panic ensued until they were secured.

Sure, but the old "soap opera addiction" was expanded (by outside powers, controlling Hollywood and media) into coercive "brainwashing". So "we" need to recognize the psychological warfare tools of our enemy. This is not an easy task, especially as they have taken the High Hills of power (controlling all media and even the DoJ and FBI).

Limping along with those that succumbed? I get your point that we are all mortal, but we should resist with all our might. We are right, we are not the cripples, we are at war, and we are (mostly) the righteous ones. This makes us morally/spiritually Strong.

Where the Aussie thing figures into that meme, is beyond me. With it's low bore-axis and semi-auto cycling, the Mateba is a fun gun to shoot, but one of the last I'd ever rely on if TSHTF. The Webley-Fosbury was a proven Semi-Auto Revolver, save for it's anemic .455 round. But, it *worked*, and that, pretty damn reliably. The Mateba is more Gadget than Gun, but I still don't want one pointed at ME!

Of course there is. The big discovery around 1900 is that light is quantized into particles, and you can't make one without the energy for it that is proportional to frequency.

Before that the classical math predicted that literally everything should be emitting infinite amounts of radiation since were more high frequency 'slots' than low frequency. But adding the particle with a minimum energy meant that these high energy photons were too costly to make and fitted the measurements perfectly.

Thus quantum mechanics and all that.

This fucktard seriously believes that the entire electric grid can be replaced with solar in two years.

Even if the storage problem were solved (it isn't) and the solar cells were free (they aren't), it'd be more like 20 years at least.

He got pissed off when I asked him how the juice was supposed to get from Snowflake's backyard solar panel to, say, an aluminum smelting plant without some type of grid.

The chains and the box were lying there on the sidelines, but there was nobody to run them. A couple of other dads and I hopped the fence and worked the game.

Well he probably assumes everyone, every home and factory, will have its own solar panel set, so no need for interconnection. Batteries will be so good that they'll store power for 48 hours usage. Too bad for the high latitude inhabitants.

Posted by: Berserker-Dragonheads Division at October 01, 2022 12:49 AM (VwHCD)

349 Theodore, it's not hard. When they spot the ball, the side judge comes and puts his foot down where the box (the thin that displays the down) goes. On first down, you get the box placed and the chain guys catch up and stretch the chains 10 years from the spot. If there's a measurement, the ref puts a clip on the chains at the X5 or X0 line in the middle of the chains, then walks out to the ball. He anchors the chains on that yard line, and then you stretch them tight, back, then forward. It's a fantastic vantage point to watch the game, but I don't usually do it at home games because the chains are on the visitor side of the field. Who wants to be on the enemy bench the whole game? Tonight we were the visitors, and so I spent the game surrounded by our boys and coaches, which was great.

Manstopper conceded, at Horse Combat distances. Say, out to fifteen yards or so.

Trajectory like a rainbow to even reach fifty yards. I've shot it. Comparison. .38 Spl. 148 gr. wadcutter, 4" bbl S&W. Holdover to hit "10" ring at 50 yards, aim at the upper "7" on the B-27 target. .455 round? Aim center head, for the same "10" ring hit.

There is NO .4xx round one should hope with which to be hit. Same with any .17 or .22. The .455 was fine for it's time, but when the horse's time was up, so was the .455's.

My cousin did his last update a few hours ago, saying it looks like it's over for us, and that's a wrap. Interestingly, he said the wind was roaring over us at higher altitudes, but "cold air damming" was keeping that wind from getting down on the deck. Said this was due to Ian quickly losing "tropical characteristics". Up in the mountains, though, that wind can still get 'em. But that was several hours ago.

You've got all of that right, actually. Saddle holsters were the thing for the most part, right up until the advent of the Colt's .36 cal. 1851 Navy, being one of the first repeaters light enough to be carried on the person.

Pro tip. The .36 Navy and later .357 Mag both share the same .357 bore diameter, along with the .38 Special. Reason being, the original .38 was measured on CASE diameter, with the "heel type" bullet having a narrower shank pressed into the mouth of the case. Outer diameter. 38 in. Diameter inside the mouth of the case? .357 in. So now your .357 Mag, fits nicely inside of that .38 in exterior diameter case. /historylesson

Well, the pressure canner is up to pressure for a 90 minute run again. Beef stew this time. I had mentioned to Miley that back their hay days, my grandmothers would do at least 200 jars in a season, usually even more.

So, Miley has decided we're gonna make it to 200 jars or bust. This run will get us to over 180 total, I think.

Well this is a 10" deep. Its an elkay lustertone. My asshole brother says no lowes, no home depot, thats homeowner shit, you need something good, and he's right. It would have been fine, but she ordered the "perfect drain" option that lowers the strainer area even more. I didn't catch that little detail when she ordered it. I opened the box and was like fuuuuuck, no way the wall drain is low enough. Its 20" to the center from the floor, which for older kitchen is fine, but not for deep undermount sinks.

378 Col. Travis. Thank YOU, sir.

Similar thing, here. The .22 LR is actually a .223 bore diameter bullet. It has a stepped "heel" that fits inside the mouth of the case. Which is just .22 wide, inside the mouth.

Which is why a .223 AR-15 can, with a .22 adapter, fire .22LR rounds for 50 yd. practice, like a champ.

(and the .44 Remington Magnum bullet measures .429, same reasons). ONLY the .41 Remington Magnum is actually a .41 diameter bullet!

382 All that water in the Spent Fuel Pools?
It is a minimum 22 feet deep over the fuel rods.
Why?
The water will absorb any radioactive Iodine 131 that bubbles out of any broken or leaking fuel rods. It prevents the radioactive Iodine from contaminating the area around the nuclear plant if they ever have a "Fuel Handling Accident."

383 I got a bottle of this stuff from georgia. A friend of mine moved there, found a distillery that was going out of business and bought out the last of their bottles. I guess they had a store in georgia, but its bottles by Olde town distillery in kentucky. On the label it says The battle field collection, and it looks like they stick different confederate generals on the label, because this one has a general Braxton Bragg on the label. Its nice stuff. I got one bottle left, and then its gone forever.

yeah this was $530 for the damn sink. I could have probably fit a wider one if I scooped the sides of the sink base, but this one was big enough, and the next size up was over $700. yeah, no, not doing that.

385 Bers, You should save those bottles, they sound nice. I have about 10 bottles up on the beam over my fireplace. Only three of them are really old bottles, but I really like the way they look up there. They sit on either side of a big brick chimney that goes all the way to a cathedral ceiling, and they flank a big old hand carved sign for an old Boston tavern. One of my boys has already staked his claim on that.

I'm definitely saving them. They are cool, they look old.My freind actually bought a case of unused bottels from them, so I have a new unused one as well. they look old and got a real thick bottom. They also sold the stuff in sealed mason jars too, so I have one of those. Man cave stuff, for whenever I get around to actually putting the mancave together.
