Saturday Morning Weird News Dump (6/17/17)

coffee mug.jpg


Good morning Morons!! Happy weekend to you all.

*****


Let's look at a few things that didn't get their full due here at the AoSHQ this past week.


So, you can chew on these stories or some others in this open thread. No jumping on the furniture. And don't pick on the other Morons.

Have a great weekend!!!

6 The woman trying to clean the panda habitat reminded me of myself trying to do housework when the kids were toddlers. Try making a bed when the kiddies are either jumping on it, or wrapping themselves in the sheets ;-)

7 FYI, to whomever posted that recipe for biscuits and gravy the other day, I'll be making up a batch for late-breakfast/early-lunch today. Been slobbering over it since I bought the stuff for it yesterday. Thank you in advance.

8 I wonder how good a job that robot does in the yard. I was out if town all week for work and the lady hired a yard guy. His methods seem... how do i say this? Well awful.

For example, the line against our nighbors property was mowed in what appears to be some sort of crop circle formation. Random patches throughout where he just didnt mow.

Cheaper than a robot i guess. For now.

9 I was reading on the EMT about the disrupting of the Trump Caesar play in NYC.

Dems and lefties are constantly disrupting conservative speakers to the point of violence. The libs have nothing to complain about here. Just wish it would have shut the "play" down for good. Disrupting CNN would be better.

16 Off to check on "my" wild strawberry patch. They should need another week or so but I just want to see how they're doing.

They make the best strawberry jam ever! Lots of work picking all those little bitty caps off all those little bitty wild berries, but man, they are just bursting with flava. Plus, free. So there's that too.

That was flounder. Please, for the love of *everything* that is good and righteous, make the biscuits from scratch. A gravy recipe that good deserves more than Pillsbury. Pillsbury!!!! I canna believe it.

I've been meaning to post a buttermilk biscuit recipe on the ONT since then to make up for this regrettable lapse, but, well, life has intervened. I'll try to get it up on the food thread this weekend.

I still think the answer is to have the protesters go full Cloggenstein and start shrieking about the racism in portraying Obama as a white man to hide their desire to assassinate him when all he wants is to make sure everyone will pay for people of color's insurance.

Geller is running a month old story from newsweek about a Russian hacker accusing the FBI of offering him a deal to take the blame for the DNC "hacking" and blame it on Trump campaign.
The FBI is just an arm of the DNC, I'm feeling our investigative agencies need shuttering and a replacement with clean agencies.

at least they released that he had a hit list of conservative Republicans.
The average American surely can figure out that all this funded violence (antifa, BLM, womyn's marches ... must be a long list somewhere) ... funded violence against Republicans is not American, and is supported by nearly all Democrats.

Hopefully it costs them dearly in 2018, instead of giving them the wave their demented elderly leaders are promising. Their tide(s foundation) is going out.

I liked the "you are Nazis" thing. It might penetrate some brains, as they sat through the rest of the play realizing they were partaking in a call for the execution of a duly elected president. And it is a president called basically to stop mostly Democrat corruption, and stop the globalists.

But New York leftists think they are "diverse" for bringing in illegals to work as their slaves. They hired their brave commie mayor. The rest of America needs to "diversify" their investments out of anything HQ'ed on the coasts.

It's similar with cats. When I'm folding laundry, I dump the pile on the bed, then take a t-shirt and lay it out flat in preparation for folding. Kira comes over and sits on it. So I take another shirt and go to the opposite side of the bed, spread it out, and she comes over and sits on that one. Then I go back around and finish folding the first shirt. Etc.

103 Illiniwek, merely yelling Nazi gets boring after a while.

Once upon a time I had some classes in street theater, mostly in view as a political and social tool, and mostly from Republican Spain, Mexico, South America (and it meshed with classes I took on Elizabethan theater)

Street theater has to be catchy, flashy have a really fast story arc to catch passers-by, and any message has to be imbedded in ridicule, humor and sarcasm to get remembered.
It seems to work better when you have some common-culture trope, twist it to a grotesquerie and send it out to caper around so the public that enforces through disdain and exclusion can start off on their ritual minute of hate to affirm their "in party"status and then get to see their own reflection.

The thinking part of that mob may decide to chill it a bit, or rethink

Screaming Nazi may not be as useful as shouting, "the Westboro Baptist Church awards this play FIVE toothbrush mustaches!"

Well I do have some of my grand mother's recipes. It was hell getting them, because her book looked like Sean Connery's grail diary from Indiana jones. It was half Italian, half English, half pencil that was semi worn away, and some splattered pages, etc. It took a few years by a few different family members to piece it all together. When my grand mother started getting real old I sent the wife to stand at her side and learn exactly how she made her gravy and meatballs (Italians call the red sauce gravy), and its a damn good thing, because she is the only female in the family that nailed it. My own aunts didn't know how to do it. The wife had to show them. Granny was the cook from hell, made everything from scratch. Jelly, pasta, you name it, she made it all. I didn't eat half the stuff she made. No seafood for me, and she made a ton of that too. Frigging crab gravy *gag* which I never ate but I heard it was to die for.

I could probably get the recipe for the meatballs and gravy, and a wicked apple cake she used to make. All her recipes were authentic Italian from over there, not that shit that passes for Italian over here. I'll ask the wife to gather some of them.

yeah true. Well mostly he yelled "Goebbels would be proud" and added the "you are the Nazi's" part just once or twice, for those that didn't get the reference I suppose.

There may be better chants, but probably not time to develop a "fast story arc". That's why the chants are so brief, maybe catchy, and often use rhyme and rhythm to be remembered. (just another view, I've never done street theater or chants at protests).

The Bible story about the guy that goes to King David about the story of the man that had one precious lamb, and the powerful man took it ... closes with "You Are The Man" since he took ... can't recall ... Bathsheba?

So the "Goebbels would be proud" sets some narrative, and sets them as the evil fools being propagandized into a destructive regime (of terror). But there are probably better concepts to be developed ... we can use a lot of them.

141 Good morning all! The amazing thing about Shakespeare is that his talent in finding the 'intersectionality' of politics and humanity can be reinterpreted in so many ways. Ceasar as villain or hero; Brutus as villain or hero; etc. Doesn't bother me much portraying DJT as Ceasar, just as it would not bother me much BHO as Ceasar.

My favorite reinterpretation is 'Giulio Cesare' by Handel. There was a really great production by the Royal Danish Opera with Inger Dam Jensen -- using a terrorist background. So good I almost thought about buying the CD which I can't afford.

142 Shakespeare also was a form a street theater. The theater was closely monitored by the London authorities and the crown, by both Elizabeth's court and James' because it was considered dangerous to public opinion.

the theaters could be shut down for being too political, or shut down because of general unrest and the fear that a performance could incite a riot. It was also considered dangerous because it gave pretext for a lot of people to gather together. The crown and the government feared that sort of thing since riots lead to fires and peoples' heads on pikes of the mob.

Lope de Vega also had to keep a close eye on being political since the Spanish crown was even more paranoid that the British

So a lot of what could be classed as political thought was couched in other terms - lots of histories and comedies.

182 so they did make Obama Caesar black ... they made Brutus a black conservative back then (2012). So give them some credit i guess. I'd have to look more closely to see what else they portrayed with bias or not. Too lazy to do that.

The attackers in the play were mostly blacks plus the woman iirc, so the framework of "enemies" is rather different. They used "Occupy Rome", but of course the Occupy thing was in favor of Obama, and was "astroturf".

Trump doesn't fit the "DC Caesar character" as he was elected to topple the establishment Kingdom, with Hillary the "Chosen Won" being selected not elected, and she was killed by an honest election that wanted change. The Deep State is not killing Caesar, they are trying to put Caesar back in power via a coup.

CARB that it was a good thing for everyone else. Of course the mutual admira..er, phallic sucking between CARB and the EPA led to nationwide futility.

No. The next step is for the prosecution to poll the jury. Was it 6-6? 11-1? Depending on the polling, they'll know whether to reprosecute or not. If it was one or two or three hold-outs for guilty, they'll reprosecute. If it was closer to split, they probably won't. OR if it was just a few who wanted to convict, they won't reprosecute.They apparently asked the judge for technical definition of "reasonable doubt" which is where they got hung up. I wasn't there of course, but I don't see how there couldn't have been reasonable doubt with women who were given Benedryl, not 'ludes or the like, alone with him, and then saying they were "raped" years later. But, again, I didn't hear the evidence and didn't even follow the case. Do know a lawyer who was following the case and he was pushed from guilty to not guilty in his opinion when he found out the "drug" was Benedryl, not a drug-drug.

This was a classic, he said, she said. Most of Cosby's accusers have admitted that they willingly and knowingly took the drugs he offered.

I believe that is the case here, also. If I have heard correctly, Cosby gave her some Quaaludes and they were drinking wine, and then the sexual activity occurred.

How does one go back a several decades, and determine who is accurate and who isn't. And since our justice system says innocent until proven guilty, I think the prosecutors couldn't prove what happened. The jury asked a couple of days ago for instructions regarding reasonable doubt and legal proof determinations.

I personally don't think this is a men think she's easy and women think she's a victim. Truthfully, the women on the jury are probably fighting what most of us would think, "the dumbass woman didn't think that getting drunk and stoned might encourage behaviors out of both that they would regret?"

Dagny, it's the left inventing yet another victim class. They start teaching this stuff in early elementary(I just read a story yesterday about a movement among new mothers who "ask" their infant babies if they want to be touched, so that they learn that their body is their own, I'm not kidding). Then it goes full tilt through high school and college while at the same time, television, movies and the SJW classes all teach that sex with anyone , at anytime, in any manner is good and healthy and normal.

So we have a couple of generations now who have been steeped in having sex is good , except if in your mind later it wasn't and now you are a victim.

It's made these latent, two or three decade later lawsuits and trials the new "brave stance" etc. Not to mention Cosby is elderly and has a large estate these women can dig into.

240 So I have a question about gasoline and spillage:

I keep straight gasoline in my gas can for the lawnmower. When I need to fill the weedwhacker with a gas & oil mix, I measure it out and mix them in a separate container. No matter how carefully I pour, I always spill some gasoline, which dribbles down the side of the measuring cup.

Meanwhile, in the kitchen, using the exact same type of measuring cup, I can pour boiling water without spilling a drop.

I used to have a cheap plastic measuring cup in the garage and replaced it with a glass Pyrex cup like the one in my kitchen, thinking the cup was at fault. But the same thing happens. Is it different viscosity, or something?

243 @240 You called it. The specific gravity is quite a bit different.
Water weighs 8-and-somethin pounds per gallon. Gasoline, 6.
It's runnier.

There are other petroleum distillates even thinner.

Was your MIL born here? I noticed there is a definite divide in my family. The older ones that were born there could all cook like a mofo. The ones that were born here can be hit or miss. My parents were born here, but my father's mother was the cook from hell, My mom's mother was born here, and was pretty good, but not like my fathers mom. The aunts on my mother side were all over the map. My mom was good, but she had my father's mother as her teacher.

Water pours differently than gasoline because it has more surface tension. Gasoline can tend to dribble when poured, like other liquid hydrocarbons.

The surface tension of the water is due to the fact that the water molecule is a very polar thing. The molecules will align cause it behave differently.

Get a comb, and comb your hair with it vigorously. Then, turn on the water at the tap at a very slow rate (not trickling, but actually flowing in as small a stream as you can manage).

Hold the comb near the water. It will bend the water water stream. Combing your hair puts a static charge on the comb, and the static charge will deflect the polar water molecules.

249 So we have a couple of generations now who have been
steeped in having sex is good , except if in your mind later it wasn't
and now you are a victim.



It's made these latent, two or three decade later lawsuits and
trials the new "brave stance" etc. Not to mention Cosby is elderly and
has a large estate these women can dig into.
Posted by: Jen the original at June 17, 2017 10:38 AM (SAsG2)


Also, Cosby has been very vocal, in a low keyed way, in criticizing black "leaders" and how they have been feeding off of and failing to do anything for the demographic they claim to be helping.

Further, there was someone who stated that in today's world victimhood holds power, and you can be a declared victim or powerless. And think of what "powerless" means to young women where sex is involved?
You wind up with a self sustaining cycle: either declare rape or be raped.

I think you're exactly right. I also think a lot of the "rape!" and war on women stuff was a left-narrative designed to help elect Hillary.


There is no campus rape crisis.



But, literally in a decade, have created a cultural norm where the expectation is that sex with anyone, anytime, etc is a good, while at the same time men are rapists. It's some bizarre entrapment.

Weirder, they've managed to change how the culture views women freely "getting with" men into a violent crime if she imagines it as such or wants his money, years later.

Just for kicks, I looked up a guy from college who, by today's standards would have been a top tier "sexual assaulter" and, alas, he's not a billionaire but a f-ing golf pro in SC. Probably makes less than me.

Don;t tell her that being a slut is empowering. Advise them not to engage in Tinder-style anonymous hook-ups (i.e. don't loan your body to someone you wouldn't loan your car or house to).

Don't miss the photo at the bottom of the article. It is a perfect illustration of hypocrisy.

Yes, THIS.

On an individual level it looks like sexual freedom. But on a larger scale, all of this consent crap is about getting institutions involved in everyone's sex lives (the college, the police, etc.). It is giving the State the power to legitimize/police what goes on in your bed. Where do all these written consent forms go? Will these come back t haunt someone 10-20 years later? You have a drunken hook-up, or the dude just doesn't call back? Call the police, get the AG to prosecute him for rape.
