Monday Overnight Open Thread (3/20/23)

Tonight's ONT has been brought to you by The First Day of Spring.

Not a good way to drum up business. Genius Award Winner.

MARCH 20--After using a butter knife to cause extensive paint damage to a 2023 Nissan, a Missouri man vacationing in Florida copped to the criminal mischief, describing his felonious conduct as a “spring break mistake,” police report.

The defendant, however, is a 52-year-old real estate executive, not a collegian sharing a St. Petersburg hotel room with eight friends.

According to cops, the vehicle’s owners, a married couple, spotted a man standing near their car Thursday evening and “making motions” near the driver’s side. When the duo confronted the man, he “laughed and ran off down the street.”

Trial of 2016 Twitter Troll to Test Limits of Online Speech

The images appeared on Twitter in late 2016 just as the presidential campaign was entering its final stretch. Some featured the message “vote for Hillary” and the phrases “avoid the line” and “vote from home.”

Aimed at Democratic voters, and sometimes singling out Black people, the messages were actually intended to help Donald J. Trump, not Hillary Clinton. The goal, federal prosecutors said, was to suppress votes for Ms. Clinton by persuading her supporters to falsely believe they could cast presidential ballots by text message.

The misinformation campaign was carried out by a group of conspirators, prosecutors said, including a man in his 20s who called himself Ricky Vaughn. On Monday he will go on trial in Federal District Court in Brooklyn under his real name, Douglass Mackey, after being charged with conspiring to spread misinformation designed to deprive others of their right to vote.

“The defendant exploited a social media platform to infringe one of the most basic and sacred rights guaranteed by the Constitution,” Nicholas L. McQuaid, acting assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, said in 2021 when charges against Mr. Mackey were announced.

Hmmmm. The love of money is the root of all evil. Post-economic? Sure, whatever......

Shane Smith made more than $100 million from Vice

After Vice raised $500 million in 2014, its CEO and co-founder Shane Smith remarked to a friend that he’d become “post-economic.”
Brash, decadent, and charming, Smith was the burly, bearded face of Vice Media through its decade of apparent prosperity, from the late aughts until the late 2010s. Vice’s image as a new kind of culture business intertwined with his own image as a big new media mogul: He drove a vintage Rolls Royce, bought a mountain in Costa Rica, and reportedly dropped over $300,000 on a single Las Vegas dinner. He handed out bonuses in the form of fistfuls of (company) cash at a holiday party. He bought the $23 million Santa Monica mansion made famous by the movie Beverly Hills Cop.
But as investors sell off what’s left of Vice, it’s increasingly clear that the lavish spending helped create an illusion of prosperity.

Scientists deliver ‘final warning’ on climate crisis: act now or it’s too late
IPCC report says only swift and drastic action can avert irrevocable damage to world


Scientists deliver ‘final warning’ on climate crisis: act now or it’s too late
IPCC report says only swift and drastic action can avert irrevocable damage to world

Scientists have delivered a “final warning” on the climate crisis, as rising greenhouse gas emissions push the world to the brink of irrevocable damage that only swift and drastic action can avert.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), made up of the world’s leading climate scientists, set out the final part of its mammoth sixth assessment report on Monday.

The comprehensive review of human knowledge of the climate crisis took hundreds of scientists eight years to compile and runs to thousands of pages, but boiled down to one message: act now, or it will be too late.

The UN secretary general, António Guterres, said: “This report is a clarion call to massively fast-track climate efforts by every country and every sector and on every timeframe. Our world needs climate action on all fronts: everything, everywhere, all at once.”

The first act should be shutting down the UN. No need for all of those tax dollar swilling grifters to be flying back and forth from wherever to the US.

Then use the UN building to house all of the illegal immigrants until we can cart them back to their country of origin in EVs diesel powered buses.

I like pretzels hopefully this brand hits our stores shelves. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Marcus Moore started his business "Moore Crunch" last October for two simple reasons: he likes snacking and he likes pretzels.

Moore is 29 years old and he has autism. Although he's worked at local grocery stores over the years, he has always wanted to grow and be self-sufficient.

"I have autism and didn't like that I couldn't take care of myself without the help of my parents," he said. "They love me and I love them but I'm also trying to live on my own and fit in where I can. I also love pretzels! So, I thought I would see if people would love pretzels as much as I do and I started Moore Crunch."

It isn't that I lack empathy. But..... If you deal in Third World Countries expect Third World Country problems.

American company begs for help as Mexican military seize facility: ‘This forcible seizure of private property is unlawful’

President Joe Biden’s failures on foreign policy, the supply chain and American exceptionalism combined to allow the Mexican military’s “insane” seizure of an Alabama-based materials company’s operations to go unanswered.

5 Just want to let some people know about this:

My DirectTV DVR hasn't recorded Tucker or any Fox show since Thursday. When I looked at the programming schedule, it said that Tucker was on the schedule tonight. But I checked it, and no recording.

For Gutfeld, it said its set to record tomorrow night--not tonight.

I think the regime has put the word out. Tucker and Greg's numbers need to come down.

They know that Twitter files is probably a one-off, and the case that they'll be caught with government-ordered media manipulation is probably unlikely.

In happy news at the TiFW casa, Rebecca continues to improve every day. She goes for her 6-week checkup on Thursday, and we expect she will be given the ally clear to return to school next Monday.

In even happier news, that will mean that I can finally go back upstairs and sleep in my bed with Mr. TiFW - I've been sleeping downstairs since we got home in order to help Rebecca if she got up in the middle of the night. She seems to be holding her own now.

Sure is gonna be nice to sleep on something other than a thin mattress on an older bed!

112 Regarding the copyright suit against the Internet Archive, hard to tell from the article but it appears to be specifically because, during the lockdowns, they allowed the same scan to be checked out by more than one person at a time.

Except for the COVID exemption to all law, that’s been an automatic loser in the past.

Being copyright, though, this shouldn’t mean anything other than a fine. Except of course that to determine the size of the fine IA will need to turn all of their records over so that the number of infringements can be counted.

197 I've been out of the book biz for over five years now, but I can explain a little about how the book biz works. First off, when you buy a physical copy of a book, it is yours to do whatever you want with. You can pass it along to a friend, donate it to a charitable organization, sell it to a used book store for a few cents. Neither the publisher or the author has any say in the matter.

When libraries began loaning digital books, the publishers figured that a physical book could be loaned x number of times before it fell apart and had to be replaced. The publishers sold their digital books to libraries, but limited the number of times a digital book could be loaned out before a new copy had to be purchased based on the number of times a physical book could be loaned out. 1/2

223 2/2 Let's be real. In order to stay in business, publishers have to sell books for money. When an author's agent goes to extend her client's contract with the publisher, telling the publisher that the author's books sold on average five times on the secondary market does no good because the publisher has made no money off those secondary market sales. So, somewhere someone has to pay full price for the book in order for it to enter the secondary market.

As a former bookseller with 25 years experience, I am the publishing industry's worst enemy. If I can't borrow it from the !ibrary, I go to ABE and buy the cheapest copy available.

I do not know where this on line library gets the original copies of the books it loans out. I would hope they would buy the copy they scan into their library. But once that original copy has been purchased, it is theirs to do with as they please.

President Joe Biden announced Thursday that a bipartisan agreement had been reached on a $973 billion infrastructure plan. The pared-down plan calls for $559 billion in new spending over five years.

Companies such as Caterpillar, with its heavy machinery, and construction materials company Vulcan Materials could see years of additional business as roads and bridges are rebuilt and buildings are modernized. Both companies’ shares rose Thursday after the bipartisan deal was struck

A friend of mine took a business school class.

They played a game where you were CEO of a manufacturing firm, and every week the professor would advance the game a turn, announce the profit to date for each student, announced new changes in economic conditions, and allowed new investments.

You had to decide whether to manufacture in the US or Brazil - Brazil was much cheaper, of course, and the people who bet big on Brazilian manufacturing were making tons of money.

Around Week 6 or so, the professor announced that the Brazilians had nationalized all the American-owned manufacturing plants. Oops.

I was the supervisory chairman on my CU's board for 4 years. Essentially I acted as an adviser regarding the viability of the board's decisions . Primary function was to act as the CU's representative during our annual federal audit. At that time, cash on hand was expected to be around 4 to 5 percent of total deposits.

317 I hear you. It's tough to find Horde-friendly series / movies. I enjoyed the first 2 seasons of Ted Lasso. Sure, there's some inherent leftism in there. But Jason Sudekis does a good job in the title role. It's funny and for the most part allows you to leave your brain in neutral.

320 Up late putting together pictures for Nephew #5. He's graduating/leaving for Army Basic at the end of May, and his mom realized that she can't find his pictures (baby, toddler, preteen). So, Aunt Pookysgirl to the rescue, with a picture archive dive going back to 2008. I found 24 good pictures that aren't blurry, dark, or of him in a diaper; so I hope it'll help.

Sounds like a plan. Take it down piecemeal. But beware of "barber-chair" failure of the cut tree. That's where the trunk of of the part being cut off splits before the main cut reaches the undercut, and the falling piece hinges on the split, with the butt kicking out rapidly toward you. It kills people. Lots of videos on the tube of ewes.

Although the big surprise was visiting Northern Japan a month ago. I don't think they're too concerned about Global Warming. Holy crap. I've never before, seen it snow like crazy while the sun is shining in the middle of the day. Snow piled 10 feet high with sidewalk 'tunnels'. People don't go out alone at night, if you fall and get incapacitated, you will freeze to death before anyone finds you. Ha! Signs warning about brown bears. Not what I was expecting.

348 To me, a Flensing Knife involves about a six foot long handle and a two foot long blade.

And if the layer of blubber the flenser is cutting slips the hook or chain, the cutter can be instantly killed by the 2 ft. layer of skin, fat and flesh, snapping back so hard that a whip cringes at the sight.

Wow. In Africa it was a train ride 6 times a year to and fro boarding school for 6 years (then I had to take a plane - DC3 or Dakota as it was called, or a Fokker Friendship - as we were too far for a train ride). Two of those years were Nairobi to Tanga, took 2 days and 3 nights. Went by Kilimanjaro.

357 Ciampino.

There was an old school blogger from South Africa.

Kees Kennis.

He used to often link and backtrack to my old blogs' posts.

Fascinating insights he wrote, from a history going back to the very early '50s. He related current events to South Africa, in a way that surely presaged our falling dominoes of a fucked society. Sadly, he passed a decade or more, ago.

He was a Mensch, in every good meaning of the word.

And I miss him, dearly.
