Overnight Open Thread (19 Feb 2016)

Yes, it's true. The Republicans have no balls and I fear Harry Reid is right when he says the Republicans will cave. They always do.

Speeding Tickets

Here are the cars that get the most and least tickets. Of course you are gonna get a speeding ticket driving a 350Z. When was the last time you saw one of those not speeding?

Dueling

With the way this election is headed, I'd be OK with dueling coming back.

The Chicken Test

ER Visits

Pretty cool interactive chart. These are the top 250 products that people injure themselves on or within a year. Stairs is number one.

Anti-SMOD

Damn. Looks like NASA wants to try and stop SMOD. NASA creates planetary defense office. Who do they think they are kidding? Our government can't even run a website let alone send up astronauts. They'll just end up focusing on CO2 or something and call it a day.

Allocated Money Just Sitting

House rejects Obama's request for $1.8 billion to fight Zika. Evidently, HHS is sitting on $1.4 billion that was allocated for Ebola. I wonder how much other money is sitting in between the cushions that hasn't been spent?

Tank Icecapades

Watch American battle tanks skid around in Norwegian snow.

NYC

The slashing and stabbings will continue until the transformation back to the 80's is complete. NYC on edge after 3 slashings and 1 stabbing hit within 3 days. That brings the total since mid-December to more than 21.

We're So Screwed

Bond, Jamesina Bond - national security in the Social Justice Warriors' brave new world.

CIA Director John Brennan said diversity and inclusion are "at the heart" of what the intelligence service is "charged to do."

So the CIAs primary mission now is essentially HR stuff?

Germs

This does not seem like news to me and one could argue that hotels and other forms of public transportation are the same. Airline employee reveals surprising things passengers aren't told.

I'd tried to keep this thing quiet - it avoids awkwardness and all that emotional crap that comes with saying 'goodbye' to people - but the f'ing boss spilled the beans....

Saw more than a few current colleagues and a not insignificant number of students and 'nieces' scramble to get my number from the school's directory.

I actually watched a Connery Bond with a young friend who hadn't seen any of them. It's astonishing how bad they were when viewed with fresh eyes.

Only Casino Royale, btw. The other Cragi movies are also not good.

I am a red-blooded American boy who will say that Casino Royale is the only Bond movie that's an actually good movie.

Then I read a review on-line some years back and the reviewer said it looked like some fat old Italian guy plastic dipped the interior to match the exterior and that the old style clock on the dash had numerals 3 inches high for old people to see. Bastard. So then I bought an Oldsmobile and guess what...they stopped making them.

103 Craig is my favorite Bond.

I actually watched a Connery Bond with a young friend who hadn't seen any of them. It's astonishing how bad they were when viewed with fresh eyes.

Only Casino Royale, btw. The other Cragi movies are also not good.

I am a red-blooded American boy who will say that Casino Royale is the only Bond movie that's an actually good movie.

I don't remember my first, but I do remember the stupidest.

I was driving a Hyundai Excel, before they got all sporty and shit, and just before they were going to raise the speed limit on the interstate. I wanted to see how fast my Excel could go, and I managed to get it up to about 90 before it started violently shaking, so I slowed it down. As I was slowing down, I was nailed for going 79 in a 55 zone. Had I waited about another 2 weeks, the speed limit would have been raised to 75, and I probably wouldn't even have gotten a ticket.

161 Bring back dueling? I say no. Aside from the idea of the thing--legally sanctioned manslaughter--there was the fact that the practice killed good men with much left to give. Alexander Hamilton comes immediately to mind. Naval hero Stephen Decatur was killed in a duel, along with several of his peers during the same era.

Years ago, I was in an aiki-jujutsu dojo and the sensei was talking about the problem of multiple opponents. There are various ways to handle the situation, depending on the circumstances: keep moving, keep one of your opponents between you and others, etc.

I raised my hand. At the time, my daughter was two or three and my son was a newborn. I was 35 or 36 at the time, younger than the instructor but older than most of the students. I asked, 'What about running away?' The instructor acknowledged that running away was often a very good idea in such a situation.

The younger guys were outraged. One of them asked, 'What about honor?'

The instructor gave him a look. 'Define it,' he said. 'Define honor.'

The young guy got flustered, came out with a bunch of stuff, stuff he thought honor was.

Honor is, in essence, the esteem of one's fellows, are presumably good men (or women) of character, of good repute. Since I'm not a cop and no longer a soldier and haven't take an oath to stand there and duke it out with bad guys, I strongly doubt anyone of quality would fault me for not throwing away my life. Family and friends rely on me not to get killed because I was stupid. Dueling is stupid.

168 There was a family of doctors here my little town in the old days, before all the growth (oh, joy!). Grandfather, father, and sons.

They were damn good. But at about 50, they'd start drinking, then running around with women, and then they'd go to sot.

Happened to all three generations.

My grandmother said she'd prefer any of them drunk than any other doctor sober.

I almost died of tick fever (Rocky Mountain Spotted fever) when I was a young kid, around age 6 or so.

My regular doctor had misdiagnosed, and it was actually the younger of the grandsons of that family who saved my little life. And he was well into the drunk phase at that time.

181 Bring back dueling? I say no. Aside from the idea of the thing--legally
sanctioned manslaughter--there was the fact that the practice killed
good men with much left to give. Alexander Hamilton comes immediately
to mind. Naval hero Stephen Decatur was killed in a duel, along with
several of his peers during the same era.

Good men, but maybe also kind of . . . dumb. At least in that area.

183 Fastest I've ever driven was in a '90 Chevy Stepside that had a 350 in it. Cragar rims, wide tires. Had the rotary speedo that would bury itself on the right and then come back up on the left side. Wrapped it back around to 40 MPH one time.

184 Part of the reason for my lust for a 1970 Buick Skylark GS. Is I owned a crappy rusted oil burning version (not the GSX) as one of my first cars. Thing was a piece of broken down cheap crap when I had it. But it would smoke a early 80s corvette in a straight line. Mostly I probably just want my youth back.

189 Well... long ago, when I was a much bigger idjit than I am today....

My then-relatively-new 1970 Mustang "Mach I 351 4inafloor Herst shifter" got a road test on the toll road from Tulsa to OKC.

Speed limit was probably 65 or 70 back then.

They HiPo clocked me at a shade over 80 near the OKC end.

Fortunately, I had slowed 'way 'way down by then from well over 100.

Fastest I'd ever driven. Or ever have.

201 I've only gotten one ticket in my entire life.

DFW morons are familiar with Pantego. I grew up at the intersection of Pantego/Arlington/Dalworthington Gardens. It meant I could get caught by 3 different cops at one intersection (F you, Park Row and Bowen)

Anyway, I was in a parking lot in Pantego and a cop pulled over my mom because she hadn't put the registration sticker on her car yet. She had it in the glove box so he didn't give her a ticket.

Then he looked at me.

"How old are you?"

"16"

"Let me see your license"

"Uh...why?"

"You aren't wearing a seatbelt."

"We're in a parking lot."

"The car was in motion."

In college I had a very .. diverse ... group of friends.

Got pulled over wasted with my white friend who was driving and was also wasted. Random "insurance card checkpoint".

Cop chewed us out about drinking and driving but let us go.

Got pulled over with a black friend who had 1 or 2 drinks. HOLY SHIT you'd think we were suspects in a bank robbery. 3 cops, drug dog, etc. etc. etc.

But I've also been fucked with a lot by cops in multiple states. Especially when I was 18-22. Mostly for bullshit (one time justified. I was pretty drunk. Not driving, of course, but long story...)

Since my mid 20's and making money Ive been fine. Never been pulled over or hassled.

302 Yes, I've been in my car a lot today and had the Patriot channel on, or the local talk. A guy called into Michael Savage, claiming he works for the CIA and that the agency is being directed by Obama administration to hire more minorities, females, etc. He said that these types of quotas have become the priority, not whether the individual has the qualities and qualifications to do what they are being hired to do. Guy said he had been in the agency for about six years and seriously regrets his choice, that he should have gone into private sector security.

Of course, there is no way to verify his story. But it was disturbing.

Depending on the person and depending on whether or not the two of you could work it out beforehand. Andrew Jackson is mentioned in the article--Jackson also challenged Winfield Scott to a duel. Winfield Scott simply blew him off.

The other problem with dueling is, while in theory it makes sense that it would lead to civility, some of those elections back then really weren't civil. At all. The reason Lincoln was involved in a duel was because he had been engaging in the same sort of stuff Trump has.

There's a strip club on Cape Cod (Zachary's in Mashpee, I'm not being coy) where the ATM dispenses $2 bills.

If you have any left over and spend them anywhere on the Cape everyone knows where you've been.

Posted by: Bandersnatch at February 19, 2016 11:02 PM (1xUj/)



I've seen that before at another club. I figure its a very basic reasoning. That the club thinks you don't want to be walking around with $2 bills so you're more likely to spend them all at the club.


And bander, do you want that link in your name?

362 I loved Casino Royale and Skyfall. Craig's run (assuming they remake OHMSS with this and the next one) is exactly what the fans might have asked for, as far as character development. But Blofeld was wasted in Spectre. All the other elements in that movie work in spite of the their simplicity, which should be the ingredients for a classic and iconic movie. I don't feel like they have a good grasp on the franchise.

This is a decade when Disney is turning franchises into reliable things. Marvel and Star Wars might become routine, but it will not stumble the way it did in the 2000s.

Give the series to Christopher Nolan and Michael Fassbender.

The subway thing is mostly the result of crazy people that nobody's locking up.

While doing it in the forest is an improvement, a person who can't be dissed without losing their temper or resorting to violence isn't a civilized person, and the rest of society would be better off by keeping him sequestered from those who can.

Upping the pressure will only make it foamier. New keg may have too much internal pressure kinda like opening a shaken can.
Posted by: Willy J. at February 19, 2016 11:23 PM (r6bSH)


hmm... I was always told 10-12 psi is where it should be at.

Is this the first keg you've used it on? IIRC, there's some rule like you use-up 1.5 psi per foot of line and you want it to serve at 3 -- which would imply a four foot beer line.
Posted by: cthulhu at February 19, 2016 11:23 PM (EzgxV)

Hose is probably 2 1/2 feet long. I usually dont have foam issues, I've had this kegerator for 2 or 3 years. Usually keep it a little shy of 10 psi. Don't usually have foam problems.

But this is the first ESB 1/2 barrel I've put in it

Portland Oregon used to be Marilyn Manson's favorite town for strip clubs, supposedly. I understand they had, or maybe still have, tons of clubs of all sorts up there.

A local one called Stars Cabaret in Salem just got nailed for having underage girls in the club. I don't think they go full nude here, but one was 15 and one was 13.

This skeevy-looking character in a diner the other day tried to have a stare-down with me while I was having lunch with my brother and daughter. I felt like I was back in middle school. Something about me had obviously set this guy off.

We were coming back from my Aunt's funeral, in this little middle-of-nowhere Indiana town. It took a minute to register what the guy was doing and once it did I was sorely tempted to escalate the situation, call him out for it, make a snarky remark, something. My daughter caught my expression, saw what was going on, started looking worried and upset. I laughed it off, lightened the mood, focused on my family, blew it off, let it go.

Sense prevailed, but younger me would've handled it differently. Younger me wasn't good at impulse control. Not good at all.

OK, probably just one before heading to the reloading bench, but .....

Why has the possibility of a GOP collapse on SCOTUS appointments not occupied more blog-space this week? Yes, there are the ritualistic (though perfectly sensible) predictions here in the comments expressing certainty of failure. But very little digital ink seems to be spilling about this, overall.

If the GOP Senate does fold on this, given the importance, the unequivocal opening bids of the big players on it (McConnell and Grassley), and therole "but SCOTUS appointments!!!" plays in the GOP's you-HAVE-to-vote-for-us,-suckers "strategy"- aren't we talking political armageddon?

The failure of the GOP Senate has been horrific, but since most people don't really know how things did, can, and should work there, they have mostly gotten a pass (incl. by severalpeople here who just don't understand the power the GOP has had since 2014, if they chose to use it).

But fold on this, at this point, after stating flatly "no dice" at the outset? I sorta am guessing that they are too terrified to fold - but that's my point. Why hasn't there been more speculation about how bad things would get if they did?

There are quite a few. Back in 2012 I was staying with family out there while I looked for work. I'd hit the corner bar, have a couple doubles, and then wander over to watch the titties while I sobered up.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at February 19, 2016 11:45 PM (39g3+)

519 Pubes may be making a comeback. The bald look started with porn, since it's kinky, and allows one to, uh, see things better. Now, ironically, since the bald (or close to it) look has become so common, pubic hair is now seen as "kinky". It may come full circle.

Of course, the labia still are smooth. Which can look sort of ridiculous with a full pelt above it.

523 #399: I'm of the opinion that the GOP already needs to Whig out.

Even if they did somehow "find their nuts", as a blind squirrel might... the party has a crippling disadvantage, thanks to a lawsuit settlement from the early 1980s. They entered into a settlement with the Democrat party that forbids the GOP from pressing charges of election fraud in majority-black precincts.

This is why Democrats, when they get to redraw congressional districts, gerrymander the fuck out them to create as many districts with a black majority as possible. It's not just that they win in such districts; they also have a free hand to commit as much vote fraud as they have to in such precincts to win state-wide.

The Republican Party is thus literally forced to fight with one hand tied behind its back. This is why Black Panthers showed up at voting stations in 2008 and told white people they weren't allowed to vote there. It's why the 2012 election returns showed 140% turnout in so many districts that went 100% in favor of Obama.

The GOP tried to get out of this agreement due to such rampant vote fraud in those districts, but they were shot down 6-3 by the Supreme Court in 2011, led by Chief Injustice Roberts.

The Republican Party is legally obligated to turn a blind eye to these felonies, and nobody else has "standing" to sue over it.

The GOP must be destroyed, whatever the cost in the short term. We need a new "not Democrat" party to level the playing field.

It's because of the association with sex that makes it so sensitive, but it's no different than any other "hair issue". Fully "au natural" for the womyn's would be leg hair and arm pit as well.

Does anyone get uncomfortable thinking that bare legs and pits looks "underage"? Those two things on a women are just about the most disgusting I can think of. Yet in Europe, the hairy pits thing is not seen as all that awful in a lot of places.

Hmmm, as we saunter from "ick!" to "too much information", I'll do a gun thing.

So yesterday at the range, first time I've seen it there, there were Ma Deuces.

Oh, yes.

Very common for Navy/police/fed agencies to use one or more of the smaller ranges at the complex during the week (SEALs too - their closest permissive range is much further away). Full-auto fireis common (and has a sweet echo). But yesterday was very slow, three of us were busting clays at the trap range, and from up above on #3 comes this very deep loud racket. Slower than what we usually hear.

So we check it out and it's the portion of a destroyer ships' company doing their qualifications on M2s and M240s. Tragically, yet again, they didn't offer to let us fire a belt (an EOD chief came close to green-lighting that with M240s a while ago). Still, very entertaining to watch Browning's creation churning up the hillside (and vaporizing the wooden target stands .....).

Something about a .50 cal gun barrel on a stick, no moving parts, has irresistible appeal. I'll be setting it off with some homemade slow match tied to a stick. Can't say much for handgonne accuracy by all accounts, but I understand the fireball is quite impressive.

Anyway, I notice he has zero body hair so I tease him about that. He says he shaves it all off. Now I think that is hilarious. Then he announces to all present that he is shaved "down there" too. He has his wife shave his wedding tackle


Well I think that is really hilarious. He asked if i would do that for my hubby. I tell him I'm pretty sure he wouldn't let me near his man parts with a sharp instrument. Then he tells me it makes his junk look bigger. I ask him if it was so small to begin with it needed amplification. Then he tells me I will find it attractive. I assure him I will not. He asks why not? I tell him "three words"

Made in 1952, it was fired only with it's proof-load, then stored for decades, but not in cosmoline.

It's a Polish made sample, marked T-44. The polish and bluing would rival the finest commercial sporter rifles from any era. Fit and finish is world-class by any measure.

The wood is perfect, and so "as new" that there are even now, discernible wood-grain fibers projecting out from the stamped cartouches in the stock.

And of course, the bore is mirror bright.

I bought it about a decade ago, and have put but a single box of 20 rounds through it, and those were the first rounds it'd ever seen since leaving the factory.

Frankly, it's better than a museum piece. It's an absolute time warp to the day it was made.

Based on today's M-44 market, and the nicer examples I've seen, I'd value this one at nothing less than $500. And that's not particularly high for one this rare and this nice.

Who'da thunk a Mosin for half a grand? But yeah, it's a thing, with this one.

Oh, and two inch groups, too. About 1-3/4 in., actually. That was with Winchester White Box Metric ammo.

The trigger feels like and breaks like a good '03-A3 Springfield match grade ought-six. About a three pound pull, no drag or creep. Just mild pressure and a clean break.

This is the Eat Your Heart Out version of the Mosin M-44.

This is just shortsighted nonsense.

We're in the age of automotive platform engineering. Have been for decades now. It's hard to name a minivan that isn't related in a technical sense to performance cars built off of the same platform, and a bunch of the go-fast bits bolt right on.

This goes back to the progenitor of all minivans, the ones from 1980s Iacocca-era Chrysler. As dreadful as the Mopar lineup was back then, they did pay Carroll Shelby to come in as a consultant, and he made their stuff go as fast as it could be reasonably made to go.

Jim - nice (the Polish M44). I've seen photos of them, and some Romanian ones, and also the M91/59s - and the wood and bluing are beautiful. Only Mosin I'm still in the market for would be one of those like-new eastern European 91/59s (or an M44 like yours).

I've got a run of the mill M38 (1942) in an M44 stock. Re-shellaced the stock as it was getting pretty bad, came out fairly nice. Have a bunch of Mosins and I'm slowly experimenting to get the same red-brown hue typical of the re-arsenaled Soviet Mosins.

My M38 surely wouldn't shoot small groups. It's counter-bored, so the crown should be fine; bore is dark though grooves/lands look sound and strong. It's seen a lot of ammo in it's lifetime, and it only sees crap Soviet bloc milsurp from me. But I'm all about practical accuracy in these service rifles. They hold a human-sized profile at 100-150 yds, they're working as designed.

Haven't been shopping/watching for a while, but I'd say your estimate of value on your M44 is reasonable/conservative.

There's been a fairly long pause in Mosin (and milsurp ammo) imports for a while now. I don't care, but it may lead to more price appreciation on these if it looks like it is permanent or very long-legged. Average condition/breeding Mosins have doubled in price in the last few years (leaving them still quite inexpensive).

Mike Hammer, I read a little bit at Maet's link yesterday about the M-1 thing.

Hmmm. Fairly baffling to me, the whole "debate". The comments, where the author participated quite a bit, were mostly just silly. Comparing service rifles from different eras, that is slamming one vs. another, is pretty pointless, even if we're talking geek/expert levels of understanding.

Have two M-1s, want at least one more. Have no ARs, want at least one. They're all great. And different, another way of saying they're great. Would rather nosh at a buffet then choose from a one-item menu.

732 28 and feeling old? Haha, haha, haha, haha, etc,etc. etc.

When I was a little kid, a year seemed to take forever. Then I was in college. After that, for what seemed like less than the length of college, I was 30. Then I turned around once and I was 40.

The old timers tell that by the time I turn around again, I'll be 80. If I make that far through the turn.

Dear old day, when I was a kid, used to say that a man had to be 40 before he had good sense. When I turned 40, I asked him, well do I have good sense, now? He said, nope, sorry he's raised it to 65.

Heh. That just means you're male.
Continue NOT being alone with her. Keep all communication with her very clean, clear, and concise.
You may want to put a bug in her sister's ear about how much she texts you etc., but be subtle. Plant the seed, but don't try to push any conclusions on her.

I know it normally does, but could someone (obviously not in real war conditions) drive it somewhere, park it, send a radio message, load it, and fire it, without getting out of the tank? If so, what is the minimum number of seat changes necessary (I'm guessing that the driver might be able to use the radio and the loader might be able to fire).

My advice do not respond when she texts (unless about family business and even then hand the texts over to your girlfriend as if you haven't a clue about the subtext) and do not ever be alone with this chick.

Some sisters get a weird competitive dynamic going... daddy issues would be my guess at the root cause... and you seriously don't want to get caught in the middle of that.

A corollary of dueling is a quote from Robert Heinlein: "An armed
society is a polite society." Notice how crime goes down where there are
more people carrying. Every time. I've said for many years that people
wouldn't so casually spew lies and venom if they had to back up their
hate and vile words with their bodies.



As the article says, violence isn't THE answer but it is AN answer. And long overdue.



If this makes me sound mortally sick at the lack of consequences for
gratuitous, and cowardly, attacks on so many levels, you are correct.

I was recently at a gun show with a question for a vendor and the guy in front of me said, "thank you," after his purchase -- which got the vendor saying "I don't know what it is, but I've sold a lot of stuff in a lot of venues -- and gun shows have the nicest people by far -- they always say 'please' and 'thank you' and smile and are just pleasant to be around." So I spilled the Heinlein quote, with attribution.

Now there is a way for the driver to enter the turret from the

squeeze through a partition that is lined up...of course the risk if

Posted by: SMFH at February 20, 2016 12:50 AM (rlfds)


I should note that this sounds like interesting information to have if one were writing a story about, say, fighting zombies in an M1A1 (since the chance of them clawing their way inside is nil but you really wouldn't want to open a hatch) and needing to shoot something (like, say, a bridge) with the main gun.

So, someone would need to point the turret in a specific direction, lock it down, get into the driver's seat, drive to wherever, slither up into the turret, unlock the turret, load, aim, fire, turn the turret back to where the partition lined-up again, re-lock the turret, then slither back down to drive onward? If pointing straight forward is 12:00, about what time would you have to lock the turret at to do this slither?

The sheriff told me there's no place in the state you can drive 80 and gave me a warning because my parents insurance would have gone up if he'd given me a ticket!

Similar thing happened when i went before the judge around that time (with dad along with me) for a maybe 4th or 5th speeding ticket since I'd gotten my license. Had to take a drivers safety class, once again off the hook because my folks were paying the insurance. Guess i was kind of rowdy. I've slowed down since then. Been years since i got a speeding ticket (knock on rubber chicken)

It would make a very dramatic story, because the lone protagonist would have to do all sorts of complicated workarounds to do all the things that four people normally do -- and would have to do them rapidly, because every second the zombies would stagger closer to the bridge.

If the turret had to be locked at 3:00, you could have some stuff about having to find another road up to the bluff where there weren't trees off to the right.....or maybe the tank would have to back up the road to the bluff so that the barrel didn't impact the hillside.

So -- story outline -- zombies infesting the mainland, numbers building rapidly. Protagonist on mainland with family in island city realizes what is going on, dodges zombies. Remembers depot with tank and scenic overlook from where he could take down bridge. Has adventure retrieving tank, fueling and arming. Has puzzle-solving second act getting tank into position and blowing bridge. Possible ending: saves family, but can't save self

848 Good premise, cooth.

But there is no ways he can both drive and elevate/traverse the main gun, much less the .50, 20mm, or coaxial gun.

And expending that kind of energy just positioning the tank where one can aim the main gun AND ensure he will be able to enter the turret is so far-fetched to me (not mentioning the fuel truck that will have to follow) that my eyes would be rolling all over the place.

If the turret had to be locked at ...


Only problem is that trends suggest that, if not the next generation, then the generation after will have un-manned turrets. The concept is already popular with IFVs, some armored cars, etc., as autoloaders have been researched & developed over the past 40+ years (they work well for 60mm & smaller), the result is a much smaller turret, and a turret hit will be much less likely to cost one or more crewmembers.

-Young Sis uses any excuse to text him.
-He is avoiding the whole "thing", which he believes to be a "thing".

I'm not saying this would happen simultaneously -- the tanker'd lock the turret at whatever weird angle would let them slither into it later, get up to the top of the bluff, slither into the turret and fire at a bridge (which is not a moving target), reposition the turret at whatever weird angle would allow them to slither back out. With zombies greasing the treads all the way.


And why do you think the hero protagonist would be a "he"?

Crap. little sis is just looking for a guy to make life easier because
Dad is pulling back, expecting her to navigate life alone like the
feminazies said they should.

The guys in town are all drunks or druggies so useless. So she's
glomming onto the good guy that big sis found, asking him to help her
make it alone w/o a goodguy, cause she can't fint find one. I mean, it
sounds like she's asking for mechanical type help, which girls get 0
training in.

I'm not picking up on the basics of this intriguing discussion, and I don't think I'm going to scroll back to find out or hang around long enough to figure it out. Intriguing, though.

*Big* bunch of coyotes set up a howl a few minutes ago, just over the wall, closer than I've ever heard them, and sounded like 'way 'way too many. Dog was barking up a storm. All the cats and the dog are inside, now, so, we're all good. Hope they didn't hassle any cattle, though. Will find out in the morning.

The topic was an odd situation between Harry and his girlfriend's Sister. She texts him all the time for reasons that make him uncomfortable, non-explicitly.

As far as the age of a woman goes? That's easy. Cut through her leg and count the rings.

Posted by: Willy J. at February 20, 2016 01:34 AM (r6bSH)

To quote Britney, we're not that innocent. Sisters do not do this unless they are skanks and trying to poach. In a normal sister relationship, little sis would be calling her dad first and, only if he is not answering, calling big sis and saying "car broke down/heater went out/have a job interview... could you or Harry help me out?"

If she is going straight to sister's boyfriend, it's because she is going straight for sister's boyfriend.

Something which has occasionally rung my bells is when female friends have asked me for advice and counsel about the men in their life. That doesn't get very far.
