Sunday Overnight Open Thread (6/18/17) Sperm Donor Appreciation Day

fathers day.jpg

(Wonder what the kid's name is?)


Quotes of The Day

Quote I


Most fathers don't see the war within the daughter, her struggles with conflicting images of the idealized and flawed father, her temptation both to retreat to Daddy's lap and protection and to push out of his embrace to that of beau and the world beyond home. Victoria Secunda


Quote II

I don't know why Alzheimer's was allowed to steal so much of my father before releasing him into the arms of death. But I know that at his last moment, when he opened his eyes, eyes that had not opened for many, many days, and looked at my mother, he showed us that neither disease nor death can conquer love. Patti Davis


Quote III

We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers - but never blame yourself. It's never your fault. But it's always your fault, because if you wanted to change you're the one who has got to change. Katharine Hepburn

16 MisHum, what a nice Father's Day ONT. That second quote, about Alzheimer's, is so touching.

I've always like that Paul McCartney song. One day in the comment section, the Notorious BFG, Oregon Muse, and I were quoting it at each other.

And Jim Gaffigan is never not funny. He gets better with age too (his, not mine necessarily). We saw him a few years ago for a show and our stomachs hurt from laughing so much. Perfect for Father's Day.

Happy Father's Day to the Moron Horde!

26 Joe F., that's exactly how I feel about that song. :-)

I get the impression that at that time (early 1970s), McCartney was so happy about not being solo and having to get everything he wrote and/or did past Lennon and the other Beatles, he hardly cared if people could make sense of a lot of his music. He was just relieved, and determined, to create, perform and release whatever he felt like, period, so long as he liked the sound.

29 I saw a documentary about lions a long time ago, and from,it I,learned that when a new male lion took over a pride, one of the first things he would do would be to go around and kill all the babies. I thought that was rather ghoulish.

I few years later, I married a wonderful woman who already had children. After about a week of dealing with step-kids, I really came to appreciate the wisdom of lions.

30 Had a nice Father's Day. Cooked Dad's request and had a very nice time. He seems to be fading. Daughter wished me a happy father's day 'cause she said I was both. I am a lucky girl. Glad I was able to teach her how to be a young lady, cook and also, play football, soccer and shoot.

Hope everyone else had a good day. Time for prayers and bed. I want to thank Ace and the horde for their many years of enjoyment.

31 At the risk of giving away one of my secrets, flap steak aka bavette steak is one of the best things ever. As flavorful as flank, but more tender. Cooked perfectly pink, sliced thin, it is a pleasure to equal more expensive steaks.

If you have trouble finding it, locate a Mexican market.

72 Speaking of shoplifting... I accidentally stole a CD from Walmart once. I get out to my car with all my purchases and see a CD at the bottom of the cart that I forgot to throw on the conveyor belt at the register. The checker didn't see it either. Nobody saw it. Since I was pressed for time I decided to return it later, but then of course never got around to doing that. I never opened it either always intending to return it. Eventually, I just donated it, I think or traded it in at Half-Price Books. What was the CD? A collection of bagpipe music.

78 Alzheimer's is a filthy disease. It cheats not just the person who has it, but their families and friends of precious time. I'm fortunate: neither of my parents had it. But my grandmother did, and it turned her into a vicious harpy who couldn't even recognize her own children, much less her grandchildren. Unfortunately, I'm at an age where the parents of more and more of my friends are having to cope with parents and even siblings with dementia. (What a depressing subject for what is supposed to be a happy day for kids and dads alike.)

Mine were 16, 17 and 20 when I entered the picture. I had no idea how much psychic energy they suck up at that age.
My father passed away almost exactly 17 years ago, so it was too late to thank him for everything he did for me, but I sure let my mom know I understood how exhausting parenting can be.

97 My dear Dad has been fighting dementia for some years now. It's not Alzheimer's, which means he knows us, remembers us, and loves the loud boisterous conversations that we have. he cannot join in, though, because he is impaired when it comes to speaking. he comprehends, but cannot answer.

He was a Marine, an avid reader, played piano, sang in church choir and barbershop, tinkered with car engines, and rebuilt old furniture.

Now he sits and watches TV, laughs at our dumb jokes, and will use a spoon to spread mashed potatoes and gravy on his bread.

It hurts to see him this way, but as I said, he still knows us, especially my dear Mom.

3 generations of the family were there, sadly for probably the last time.

It got pretty dusty in there watching the younger parents with the kids. Just thought "Moments like this are one of the many reasons why we Dads did this".

111 Time for my annual Father's Day post.

I always preface this with the observation that I understand that not everyone had a wonderful relationship with their father, and there's little to be said about that.

My own father was not a perfect human being, but he did the best that he could with what he had at hand, and he was at heart a very fine man.

If your own father is still with you, talk to him.

On Father's Day, I always recall the lyric from Paul Simon:

I know a father
He had a son
He longed to tell him all the reasons
For the things he'd done
He came a long way
Just to explain
He kissed his boy as he lay sleeping
Then he turned around and headed home again

He went blind, and he died at 60 years old.

I said, "I think that somethings wrong with the music; is it stuck in your system?"

Fifteen, in boys, is scraping the bottom of the barrel. They are nothing more than a walking attitude with a mouth that never quits. Once my middle son's own precious sprout hit that sweet spot of teen age joy, I received frequent phone calls thanking me for not beating him black and blue or simply throwing him out of the house to starve to death. As the saying goes: Grandkids are a parent's best revenge. Your day will come. I just love listening to my kids whine and kvetch about how horrible their kids are and how close to killing them they are. The best part is, the kids know I'm laughing at them.

Nope. Apparently the van was sitting outside the mosque and revved it up when worshippers came out and began to cross the street. Some witnesses say he lost control while others say he ran them over on purpose.

Everything is subject to change as the police figure out what happened. This being London, the odds are almost certain that the incident was caught on at least one camera.

Definitely. I assume you are not looking for a stand mixer, because everyone knows that KitchenAid owns that category. But for a hand mixer, go to Amazon and search for Oxo Hand Mixer. $27.97, and it beats many more expensive mixers I've had down the years. The headlight feature seemed silly when I bought it, and now I think it's the best thing ever. Good power, well-designed beaters and control. Love it.

Saw an article that said this is a really radical mosque that is under new leadership - less radical imams. Maybe someone is indicating he's upset by this?

Takes a LOT of cherries for that, and a LOT of pitting.

This afternoon at sunset I was sitting on the porch. We have a large old sour cherry tree about 25 feet away from the porch. While I was watching, a squirrel scrambled up in it and very contentedly started picking and eating cherries.

I was building up a small bit of resentment when a couple of small Titmice fluttered into the tree and began to help themselves. Well, as I said, it was sunset, birds here and yon were twittering, the sky was blue, and I realized that this one hell of an idyllic scene...that's when I noticed the rabbit grazing under the tree.

Honestly, it was like a Disney cartoon. I just sat back and soaked it in.

303 Below is a story Jeffrey "Trump voters are hinterland bumblefucks" Wells posted today at his blog, Hollywood Elsewhere. Even his left-wing buddies in the comment section are saying he was an asshole and he's lucky he didn't get shot. Here it is:

I was rumbling around the WeHo Pavilions parking lot on the two-wheeler (his Honda scooter), looking for a spot. Five or six car lengths ahead I saw a little red Mercedes pull out so I gunned it, drove around an idling SUV and pulled in. I was stowing away the helmet when I heard this wailing sound coming from behind me. It was some 40ish guy going haaayyy! He was frowning from behind the wheel of his white four-door something or other and whining, I was waiting for that spot. Jesus! I was waiting for it! As if to say, what's the matter with you? Have you ever heard of parking lot manners?

Law of the jungle, pal. Okay, if I'd seen you waiting for the spot I might not have taken it. I would actually rather not occupy any parking spot as I don't really need one. But I didn't see you so I took the spot and that's that. You chose to go bigger and slower with four wheels and I chose smaller with two wheels, and look who has the spot, asshole!

There's a scene in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre that applies. Bearded Humphrey Bogart is dead broke and on the bum in Tampico. He's walking down a cobblestoned street when he sees a smoking, half-gone cigarillo that's been tossed into the gutter. Bogart wants to grab it but he hesitates out of pride. Fred C. Dobbs doesn't drop to his knees for a few puffs of tobacco, no, sir! Then he lunges for it anyway. Too late! A little Mexican kid grabs the cigarillo and saunters down the street, puffing away, cock of the walk. Bogart is seething. I wanted that damn cigarillo and okay, I hesitated but then I decided, and now some kid is enjoying it instead of me! Life sucks.

The pissed-off Pavilions parking-lot guy in the white four-door was Humphrey Bogart, and I was the little kid with the lightning reflexes. Life is like that from time to time. Unfair, I mean, but I didn't rig it.

Clarice is spot on. Rosenstein appointed a special counsel without a crime in violation of the statute and the bar code of ethics. Mueller has a conflict of interest and should never have accepted but he knowingly did in violation of the statute and the bar code of ethics. Trump should have a press conference and explain that then fire them both and file complaints with the bar association against them and against Comey. Hurt them back. Make them pay.

Got to meet her family (even made an ally in DiL's little sister). Had food, beverage, silly games, gifts. The mom-to-be got a lot of necessities like onesies and baby hats. And Milady and I got to be with all three of our offsprinks. So, there's that, for Dad's Day.

Tell him I said Happy Father's Day. Since everyone I would say it to is dead, your hubby can have a freebie.

It's a variant of the old idea that the moon makes people crazy, i.e. lunatic.

I've always heard "moonstruck" in the context of romantic love, as in "the first time I met Susan, I was moonstruck."

please discuss

Clarice is spot on. Rosenstein appointed a special counsel without a crime in violation of the statute and the bar code of ethics. Mueller has a conflict of interest and should never have accepted but he knowingly did in violation of the statute and the bar code of ethics. Trump should have a press conference and explain that then fire them both and file complaints with the bar association against them and against Comey. Hurt them back. Make them pay. Their crushing defeat will keep others from trying that carp again.

378 Three of the five bright planets are easy to see in June, 2017: Jupiter, Saturn and Venus. Jupiter appears first thing at dusk and stays out until well after midnight. Saturn rises at dusk or nightfall and stays out for rest of the night. Venus rises before the sun and reaches its greatest elongation - its farthest point from the sun on our sky's dome - on June 3, 2017. Mars and Mercury will be hard to spot this month. Mars is buried deep in the glare of evening twilight. Mercury swings behind the sun in June, thereby transitioning from the morning to evening sky

I've known several but don't have a lot of thoughts on the subject. There are a variety of ways to serve and my friends all chose the part-time track after a relatively short period of full-time service. From the way they talked, it seemed to resemble serving in the reserves.

They liked the benefits and, at least in my day, kids used it as a way to pay for college.

387 If this Wells guy lives in SoCal and he's zipping around shopping center parking lots on a little scooter, here's what will eventually happen:

LE and paramedics will respond to an emergency call of a man and scooter crushed underneath a car. Upon investigation, the car will turn out to be an old beater that hasn't been registered or insured in years.

Witnesses will report seeing a disheveled Latino male aged 18-35 hastily leaving the scene. There will be open liquor bottles and/or marijuana residues found inside the car. Fingerprints will not match anyone in the DMV databases.

No arrest will be made. The car will be impounded. No one will turn up to claim it. Wells (or his estate) will end up suing the shopping center owner and the police department, alleging negligence. The jury will award fifty million dollars.

Because mom's always remember the sunscreen, and raise perfect little kiddies, right? Right. I'm also a disabled vet, divorced with a young child, and my ex stole away with my daughter out of town Sunday on the ONE fucking day that's supposed to be set aside for my daughter and me, and guess what? The courts are too busy to give a fucking damn. Don't get me wrong - I'm not looking for sympathy and I don't take myself too seriously (and love a good joke) but with all the shit going on politically, it's getting slightly more difficult to laugh at videos like Gaffigan's.

It is a proven fact that the Dad is the one who makes sure the daughters don't end up on the pole and junior doesn't end up in the hoosegow or worse. Moms feed 'em, clothe 'em and layer on the guilt, but it's Dads who do the heavy lifting, and I think you for that.

And yes, a nice cold one once in a while is a small price to pay for all that awesomeness.

Isn't that where crazyman Anjem Choudry got his start?"

I don't think so, but it is where shoe bomber Richard Reid and 9/11 terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui attended services. Their previous mullah, Abu Hamza al-Masri (who lost both hands and an eye in a premature splodyation incident), is doing life in prison for terrorism.

Yup. "Moderate".

as for "witness" statements, if they are headbangers, they have every reason to lie and claim things that aren't true.

after all, taqiyya is acceptable behavior to them, and railroading a kuffir using his own legal system against him is both good sport and a good deed in their eyes.

To my knowledge, your modem doesn't have much to do with it. When you 1st connect, a record is kept at your ISP when the IP is assigned. How long it stays in that cache depends on the ISP.

We lost power for close to 19 hours the other day and yep a new IP was assigned.



I'm supposed to have a static IP. I'm paying for it but it aint working out that way.

In the US, Asian means Japanese, Chinese, or Vietnamese.

In the UK, it means Pakistani.

It's a dodge for the reality that Islam is not a racial issue, but a cultural one. The majority of Muslims (Arabs, Mediterraneans, Persians, and Central Asians) are Caucasian.

Leftoids tend to get uncomfortable when you point that out, and take away their ability to demonize you as a racist.
