Are You Ready For Some ONT?

I expect the ONT to be slower than usual tonight, after all, tonight the NFL preseason exhibition season really starts. I will be watching the Ravens/Foreskins game, so I'll have only half an eye on this thread, at least until the game is over. I, for one, can't wait until the regular season starts and we get some games that mean something.

More Football

This is a really nice clip. A little boy, who has had multiple heart surgeries in his young life, got to run a play (for a touchdown, 'natch) with the NFL team from Indianapolis. I assume he is a big Indianapolis fan, so this was probably a real thrill. Hell, it'd be a thrill for me, and I'm neither a kid nor have I had major health issues.


Korea


Well, Korea has been in the news a lot lately because they threatened to nuke Guam. While I certainly feel for the people of Guam (what do you call them anyway? I'm going with Guambats), everybody knows that attacking Guam would make absolutely no sense. The US would flatten North Korea if they tried. Still, here's a very interesting article detailing why North Korea is pursuing a strategy of “rational irrationality”. It's worth reading if you're concerned about the situation. 3 maps that explain North Korea's strategy.

I certainly hope this all comes to nothing. South Korea would be heavily damaged in any conflict, and aside from the loss of life, what about the great fast food commercials?

(And before you soar all over me, this is definitely whistling past the graveyard. A resumption of the war in Korea would be a disaster for all involved)

Women's Issues


Healthy Feminism Still Exists.


Good article. It's about a symposium given by a bunch of high-powered women in the tech field.

Feminine power is not about pushing men down, it’s about teaching women how to blaze a trail. It isn’t about demanding women be included in everything, it’s about teaching them they are fully capable of being included if they work hard. It’s about having a spot at the table that wasn’t given to you because you’re a woman, but because you have valuable insights to contribute that come from being a woman.

We on the right are blessed in that many of our women eschew modern feminism. It's not because they don't want to be “equal”, it's because they know damn well that they are equal, and they aren't afraid to assumptively act like it. We men know that they are equal and wouldn't presume to treat them otherwise. All in all, it makes for much healthier and happier relationships than you find in the pussy hat brigade.


Your vagina may be depressed. Clickbait headline (it is the Post after all) for an article about how some anti-depressants can be used to treat feminine genital irritation. Still, I can see it now: “Not tonight honey. My vagina is depressed”. "Your vagina is depressed? It's been been 3 weeks woman, my dick is damn near suicidal!"

Speaking of strong women, I'm far too old and married to have ever fooled around with this Tinder nonsense, but I'd swipe right on this girl in a heartbeat. Anyone who can have such a great sense of humor about her disability is probably a person of some substance.

Just a Good Ole Boy, Never Meaning No Harm

There are a million reasons to avoid Twitter. It is frequently a dumpster fire. However there are a million reasons to use it, and very high up on the list is that it gives you a chance to see just how damn FUNNY so many people can be, and it gives them a venue to be funny. Like the following tweet, which may just be one of the cleverest bon mots I've seen:

Wopat.jpg

Two From The Atlantic


Here's the point in the ONT when AlexTheChick flies into a rage of 1,000 suns.

Innocence Is Irrelevant

How the modern plea bargain has turned the justice system in America into something that's all about the system and not at all about justice. The solution, of course, is to start taking laws off the books. Lots of laws. Once you've done that, do it again and again. Then we might be approaching a strange and unknown state of civic being that I'll call, oh, say “freedom”.


Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?
I think Mis Hum might have mentioned this one earlier this week. It's worth repeating, however. Get your kids off those damn devices and out into the real world. It's hard. I struggle with it with Little, but it's got to be done. Really. Related: Warden's post from last night.


Trump Chicken


I had a little fun with the giant inflatable Trump chicken that leftists have put outside the White House.



Loonie Left


Hmmmm. Marxist group disbands because members were too rich, white. Maybe the left will contradict itself right out of existence?


This one isn't so funny. I’m Done Pretending Men Are Safe (Even My Sons). Those poor boys. At least the therapist won't have to dig far to figure out where the neurosis came from.

As a single mother, I sometimes wonder whether the real problem is that my sons have no role models for the type of men I hope they become. But when I look around at the men I know, I’m not sure a male partner would fill that hole.

Well, maybe you should look should look to the man who filled your hole? Or maybe you should have thought of this before you decided that your hole needed filling? Just a passing thought.

Stick 'em Up!

58 Reading over the article about plea bargains... I don't have a lot of sympathy. The woman in the article was an idiot, and the punishment sounds about right. She let a stranger live in her apartment, whom she knew had a history with drugs, caught him using, and didn't make sure that he took that shit with him when he left. Furthermore, she has a history of making bad decisions, which leads me to question how much of her story is true.

It's driving him nuts, so they next time they stand up, he just hauls off and reaches up there and pulls it out for her.

She turns around and slaps the shit out of him. "Pardon me, Ma'am", he says and he pushes it back in her crack.

84 re: "Depressed vagina"

The NHS notes the pain can be:
-a burning, stinging or sore sensation
-triggered by touch, such as during sex or when you're putting a tampon in
-constantly there, in the background
-worse when sitting down
-limited to a part of the vulva, the opening of the vagina, for example
-more widespread, affecting the buttocks and inner thighs
-commonly associated with amount of money in significant other's wallet
-also known as "WhatHaveYouDoneForMeLately" Syndrome
-frequently occurs after a Big Damn Fight Over Nothing

99 Reading over the article about plea bargains... I don't have a lot of sympathy. The woman in the article was an idiot, and the punishment sounds about right. She let a stranger live in her apartment, whom she knew had a history with drugs, caught him using, and didn't make sure that he took that shit with him when he left. Furthermore, she has a history of making bad decisions, which leads me to question how much of her story is true.

110 That Business Insider article about Korea seems to be claiming that what we have now is the best we're going to get. That falls into the category of conventional wisdom. It seems to be implying that anything (Trump) that upsets the status quo is a threat to the stability of the region and that makes Korea the first domino in the Domino Theory of South East Asia, and that theory got us into Vietnam. That Theory was also proven on the African continent as, one by one, wars for national liberation produced the mess we have now.

That Domino Theory also applied to Cuba and Castro's attempt to spread communism in South America.

Not sure where that leaves us going forward.

Perhaps California's war for National Sovereignty might be the next step down that path.

Once upon a time, I dated a girl from Cleveland. When her beloved Browns got beat by my Broncos ("The Fumble") I was ready to be gracious but she held it against me. Like I had anything to do with it. Sheesh.

Anyway, after that game, whenever she dropped something, I was tempted to be a gentleman and pick it up for her but I just said "Byner" and kept walking.

She dumped me.

154 Baby Sister Update

So, spoke with Joyce yesterday. She sounded good: it was a strong-voice day (not all are, some are trilly-voice days).

When prompted, she recalled having a great time with Jessica on Sunday (Yay!!).

Just great to hear her voice and share some of what's going on with her.

And it turns out that she may not have been totally forthcoming with me (/smile), because after we spoke, I got this from her friend Jessica:

"Per your conversation with Joyce, I think she was being coy. We engaged a rip - snortin' Backgammon tournament today. Best two out of three. Upon stomping all over me the first game Joyce cheered, "Yay! That's the way I like-ee!" We finally had to bring in the big guns of Snowball to officiate the competitive ruckus.

Joyce officially clobbered me. Out of three, she was best with two.

We generally manage to make good use of the remainder of our time together simply by taking care of things that needed to be done. We make a pretty good team. She's the perfect co-pilot."

Thanks, Jess!

[To my fellow Hordelings, thank you all in advance for your prayers and well-wishes for my sister and her family]

171 So, the Santa Barbara job counter-offered, and it's pretty good. It's still less, in real terms, than what I was making in Colorado Springs, but the job offers a lot of opportunities for professional growth which could be useful down the road.

On the other hand, I could turn it down, become an art student for a semester, and try to find work outside of Cali. I've got until Monday COB to decide.

Allegedly she was sexually assaulted. Whether that's true or not, or whether anything actually happened that could be fairly labeled as sexual assault or not isn't made clear. What is clear is that she thinks this gives her the platform and authority to make these proclamations and condemnations. What she needs is a good therapist.

Nah, in fact the key folks seem fairly right-wing, economically. Plus, I live in Ventura county, which is pretty red (I think the Sheriff is fairly open with issuing CC permits, for example).

Pros: I'd be working on interesting projects such as housing market analysis, water market analysis, regional economic modeling, etc. The office is literally next door to the community center which holds tango and swing dancing lessons, and down the street from the gym. I'd get to travel to Europe and Asia.

Cons: The drive is 50 minutes each way and traffic really sucks. The pay is about 33% less than Colorado Springs, in real terms. I have no idea where I'd be able to live if I have to move out of my current place, since everything is so expensive. I'd get sent to places like Fort Polk and Fort Drum. Also, I'd travel about once a month, so my schedule would be shot to hell.

He said he's up to $10k in fines and $15k in interest. If he'd been caught driving drunk, he could get on a payment program and get his license back immediately. He works intermittantly so really can't pay this back.

If you look at the local jail roster, there are always folks driving while suspended. He's going to try and work it off on the work crew. It's a scam, another way to put people in debt and keep them there.

Thing is, everyone knows that the Nork army is a joke these days. The reasons why we haven't steamrolled the country are -

1) Seoul's too close to the border, and is effectively held hostage
2) China
3) Someone's going to have to take care of the near iron age economy of the country after we get rid of the current leadership, and South Korea *really* doesn't want it to be them (merging the two countries right now under Seoul's leadership would destroy South Korea's economy). Probably the only way to safely handle the mess would be for the US to run the place for a decade (since we can afford the cost), but that would cause a whole host of diplomatic issues, and probably piss off the average Korean citizen.

On the other hand, I could turn it down, become an art student for a semester, and try to find work outside of Cali. I've got until Monday COB to decide.

Posted by: Colorado Alex In Exile at August 10, 2017 10:16 PM (Tnhbr)




Start scanning the Craigslist ads for boats/small yachts there in the So Cal area, and of course, before you buy one, make sure you can get a liveaboard slip in one of the local marinas.

It's a nearly-perfect way to live out there in Southern California, beats the astronomical costs of housing, and you might just come out ahead when the time comes to sell the boat and move on.

Plus, you can learn how to handle a medium size boat, which is a pretty nifty skill to add to the kit.

The former Google engineer, whose controversial memo has triggered a nationwide debate on gender differences and diversity efforts in technology, defended his views in an interview Wednesday with Bloomberg Television, saying company executives are smearing him in its wake.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai canceled an all-hands meeting about gender controversy due to employee worries of online harassment
Doxxing of search company staffers had already started.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai has canceled the company's much anticipated meeting to talk about gender issues today. The move came after some of its employees expressed concern over online harassment they had begun to receive after their questions and names have been published outside the company on a variety of largely alt-right sites.

A bunch of people claim that this guy's presence is "triggering" and "makes us feel unsafe", and that's not just a comment that there's a disagreement; that's telling the world he's physically violent.

We got in contact with a gov person to help him out and got his phone reconnected, but he's been convinced by his "girlfriend" that his ex wife (my wife's mom) was the one that stole all his money. He owns a nice condo in a very desirable part of Tokyo, and we think his "friend" going to try and steal that from him as well. It's a big mess...

I worked (among my umpteen professions) as a probation officer 15 years ago, and that story is common.

I told the Sessions Court Judge (misdemeanor court) at lunch one day that eventually Americans would get organized and break the legal system by demanding court trials for everything from speeding ticket to multiple homicide and that the court system couldn't handle it.

He snort-laughed at the thought and told me "Good luck organizing the Proletariat there Winston", which made me laugh too.

335 Well, my wife's father over in Japan has slid downhill into Dementia. His new "girlfriend" got ahold of his bank card and drained all the money out of his account. His phone was disconnected because his autopay for the bill was failing and he didn't have any money for food. We got in contact with a gov person to help him out and got his phone reconnected, but he's been convinced by his "girlfriend" that his ex wife (my wife's mom) was the one that stole all his money. He owns a nice condo in a very desirable part of Tokyo, and we think his "friend" going to try and steal that from him as well. It's a big mess...

Yes they are called Guamanians, although there were crazy drivers the old man referred to as "Guamaniacs".

The Chamorro were the "original" inhabitants but even at that time there were not that many "pure" Chamorros and the language was pretty much dead. Only languages I recall hearing were English and Tagalog (Filipino).

376 How dreadful are the curses which Guammedanism lays on its votaries!
Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as
hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The
effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly
systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of
property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A
degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the
next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Guammedan law every
woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a
child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of
slavery until the faith of Guamslam has ceased to be a great power among
men.

-
When I became experienced enough to be an on call deputy district attorney for after hours warrants etc., my first call concerned a couple who had watched an episode of Okra in which some expert said that the husband having an affair can strengthen a relationship. This was in the pre-Monica era, a simpler time. Well, the coup!e went to our local anything goes bar for the purpose of finding a floozie for the husband. A floozie was readily available and husband and floozie went to floozie's to make whoopie. A short while later, a scream pierced the night in floozie's neighborhood and a naked man was seen fleeing the scene. The cops contacted the screaming naked man who had appeared to be a floozie at the bar. It seems s/he and hubby decided to begin by shaving each other's genitals and hubby got Brazilianed but turn about might have been fair play but was not strategically viable as hubby got a shock just as he was approaching Mr. Johnson with a straight razor. Hubby cut floozie who then ran not so gently into that good night. Another Okra related violent crime.

(I later prosecuted charges against cookie for felony DUI type offense on several occasions eventually sending him to prison.)

397 Talked to a local guy tonight with a suspended driver's license. I'm not sure of the original offense but it wasn't drinking or drugs. He has to get to work so he drives. He said he's up to $10k in fines and $15k in interest. If he'd been caught driving drunk, he could get on a payment program and get his license back immediately. He works intermittantly so really can't pay this back.

If you look at the local jail roster, there are always folks driving while suspended. He's going to try and work it off on the work crew. It's a scam, another way to put people in debt and keep them there.

Here in Alberta, they will take away your driver's license if you get behind on child support. How not having a driver's license is supposed to make it easier for an unemployed guy to find and keep work is not explained.

"Ol' Red" that Okinawa vet who was a local legend I've talked about here told a tale of the time he got trapped. He was somewhere, drunk off his ass and picked up (what he thought) was a hottie.

He took "her" back to his car and they started getting into it in the back seat. I remember him bringing the house down when he said, "And I ran my hand up her thigh and then a chill went down my spine. I felt them little nuts!".

He punched it in the face and threw it bodily out of the car. Some other dudes saw that, and thought he was beating up a woman, and so he was about to get mobbed. He screamed, "That's a man!"

They pulled up it's skirt and saw it. And then they all ran it off.

A short work story.
We had a vending service run by a man who'd bring sandwiches and such in boxes at lunch. At the beginning of lunch we'd all gather round the table where his boxes were displayed.
One day a man with whom I'd exchanged good natured barbs with were across the table from each other. He looked at me and said sumpin sumpin OneEyedFuck.
His name was Arnold. I replied "and a good morning to you too, Mr. Ziffle" while he stood there with his three sandwiches.
"FUCK YOU" said he. "I win" said I.

He never liked me after that. I guess I went too far.

422 Off to nap, but first a joke, the punchline of which I shared above.

Grand Exilarch of Cairo is ailing and on his death-bed, the community gathered outside, his son standing by the bed.

'My son,' says the Exilarch, 'go to the mosque and bring my friend, the Mufti.'

Son departs and returns, leading the Mufti through the crowd.

'Mufti,' says the Exilarch, 'we've known each other for so many years, and have always worked to bring peace and friendship between our peoples. You are a good man, my friend.'

The Mufti replies, 'And you, O Leader of Your people, you, too, are a good man, and it is a blessing to be your friend.'

'My brother,' says the Exilarch, 'I have a favor to ask of you. Not merely for me, but for all our peoples.'

'Name it, my brother.'

"I wish to revert and become a Muslim, that I may, if it please Allah, see you, my friend, in Paradise. Do this for me.'

Mufti helps him down, and they recite the prayers, and the crowd, hearing this, begin screaming in rage and horror.

Mufti helps him back into his bed.

'Thank you, my friend. inshallah, we will meet in Paradise.' Tears of joy stream down the old man's face.

Son bursts in, shireking, 'Father! How can you do this to us? How can you betray your people in this way, when we need you the most?'

The Exilarch, with his last breath, laughs and says, 'My son, better one of them dies.'

431 FACT: Red Pandas are not even bears, but are their own species. They get called 'Panda' because that means "likes to eat bamboo" or something similar.

Sorry to sound like a know-it-all, but I took my kids to the zoo (Columbus, OH) today. 12 hours or so ago we were watching a couple Red Pandas climb around and peek their beautiful faces out from their (man-made) Panda houses up in the trees. They are beautiful to look at, except the bodies and tail come close to looking like a raccoon, which are nasty little fuckers and not cute at all.

The prettiest animals, to me, are the Tigers. They were feeding one and it was about 6 feet away, on the other side of a chain link fence. Their faces are amazing. And, yes, they would rip my head off and shit down my neck like they were getting a drink of water.

The SIberian Traps are blamed for the great extinction at the end of the Permian, about 250 million years ago. Apparently there was a massive lava flow, bigger than any supervolcano ever recorded.

Personally, I think it was probably set off by a massive impact, probably big enough to punch through the crust and expose the mantle. But they haven't found evidence for that yet.

Such an impact could have happened at the antipodes of the eruptive center for the traps, and IIRC, in Permian time we had Gondwanaland, and "all" the land was in that one supercontinent. So the antipodes would have been ocean. And any impact site on the ocean floor would have long since been subducted under some other plate.

512 Heya, WD, how is Gingy's father doing? Do her folks need any help down their way? Like I could drive down for a day and mow the lawn or something.

AOP! That is an incredibly generous offer and you will never know how much it means to us. I mentioned it before to Gingy, but things are OK for now. Besides, knowing you, you'd show up with a 1932 International Harvester with all kinds of mower mods attached to it and they just have a small yard.

Right now, dad's biggest problem is that he's Canadian. They diagnosed his cancer as a very slow growing type, one that he has probably had for years, one that can easily be controlled with radiation, but he was diagnosed a month ago, and it's going to be a month before he can get into see an oncologist.

Needless to say, this has Gingy and I crawling the walls, but when it comes down to it, what can you do? If I was rich I'd fly him down here to get immediate treatment, but I'm not. Anyway, your selfless offer of help is deeply appreciated. But you're a couple of hours away, and there is nothing that you can do that would warrant the trip. Thank you SO MUCH for the offer. You're a goddamn mensch, you know that?

"Antipodes" is also the term for "place on the opposite side of the globe from". E.G.: the North Pole is the antipodes of the South Pole.

It would be fun to put a flock of muzzies on the deck of an aircraft carrier at the antipodes of Mecca, because every direction from that point is "the shortest route to Mecca". Maybe they would all kill each other in factional fighting over the "right" way to bow and pray. Would make for a fun scene in a movie, anyhow.

523 So, went to my fathers service this morning up near Ft. Hood. It was nice, small. He remarried so I met his widow for the first time. She is in the Army so her platoon showed up which was a bit of a surprise when all of these really young guys showed up to the funeral home. It appears that he was popular with the guys because of the stories he told about his days in the Air Force.
Anyways, is it strange that I find it weird that his new wife is younger than me, by a bit. He was 43+ years older than her. He wasn't wealthy or anything along those lines. It was just awkward for me.

The geodesics on a sphere are fairly simple. On an ellipsoid, whoo boy, they get a wee bit complex. The earth can be approximated by an oblate spheroid. And there's a name for the reference spheroid used by the standard navigational coordinate systems and all that.

This gets too complex to go on about here much, but the geodesics do not have to be closed curves. You can see plots of geodesics on oblate spheroids and the properties and behavior of them.

Of course, that's just my opinion. Maybe he would have wanted to spend more time with his family either way.

I know that the horde is incredibly generous, but I would have never thought of that. Downside of being a self reliant conservative Neanderthal I guess.

Here's a contractary position: The ONT is supposed to be politics free, or at least politics lite.

Yes, I know ya'll really care about this, but the question of the geodesic error of the great circle for a sphere vs the actual ellipsoidal geodesics came to mind.

Turns out the error has maximum of 0.56%. That is your shortest distance calculation can be off by that much.

--------------------

This.

And even if it wouldn't change, the important thing is that the perception is there.

After the Paris Peace Accords and the US pullout in Vietnam, Nixon probably would have been lucky to get much support for the South Vietnamese government if the North had immediately invaded (much like Ford later on). But the North didn't know that. They just knew Nixon as the crazy US president who would immediately reinstitute the bombing of Hanoi if the North tried anything. So nothing happened until after Nixon resigned.

If Fat Boy actually believes that Trump will flatting Pyongyang (with or without Chinese approval), then he'll probably be a good little Fat Boy for the next four (or eight) years. And then Trump will never have to flatten Pyongyang, so we won't have to risk finding out whether or not he can actually do it.

I highly doubt it. The culture has become so brainwashed about what war actually is that I find it nearly impossible to see anything changing, short of a major attack on our soil.

Bush had a chance to change things after 9/11 but he chose to do the minimum possible and not upset the culture of pussification that has taken over the US. People would have backed him in a no-holds barred total devastation of Al Quaeda and various arab and muslim threats ... but he refused to even take a step that way. Instead, he allowed Iraq to become a long, drawn out waste of time (it was important to do, but he fucked it up after the highly successful invasion and regime destruction) that only further embedded the pussy culture in the US. SHit .. Bush even had to take shit for waterboarding three friggin terrorists. THREE! WTFFF?

IN any event, I doubt the Norks are scared of us. We've been letting them get away with murder for 25 years, now.

Its been a while since I went to Vegas, but when I did it was with two friends. We had a room with two Queens. As we were checking in they offered another mattress bed for free.

So I imagine that they are pretty accommodating about that stuff as long as they know how many are actually booked to the room. Afterall, they have your cash for the room already and that one room 2 people vs 2 rooms 2 people which is better for them and rolling in that extra mattress, which they probably already have isn't gonna hurt at all.

"He was handling several visa and passport fraud cases in Debbie Wasserman Schultz's district."

Nothing to indicate he was investigating DWS herself, or any of her cronies. Passport and visa fraud is not the exclusive purview of connected Democrats. If there is information from other sources indicating otherwise, well, I'd be happy to hear it. Delighted, even. But the link itself makes no such connection. Just because there is crime going on in her district, it does not follow that she is involved.

644 Palpatine, true. What I would hope for is that eventually there's a Chinese government that would finally just write off Korea and allow us to do that. Probably will never happen, though.

Maybe go ahead and let them have Taiwan. But then I've heard if we did that, the Chinese would just say "oh, you're giving us something that we already own? Thanks a lot, guys!"

I booked my non-smoking room with a view at the Rio a couple of hours ago, through the Rio (caesars.com) website. The rate had jumped about $10, from last weekend. Same for air fare, although I moved my flight up so I would be in before drinks, so there was about a $60 jump.

Usually, when I travel, it's not a big deal, as I have very little coordination to do. This trip involves a lot of coordination, and making non-refundable reservations ... let me coordinate some more ... as rates increase.

My belief and recommendation: If you're going to make the trip, make arrangements by this weekend.

He banned discussion. And not even discussion. He was overly heavy handed. I had a comment about Fox News' election coverage. I think maybe I mentioned Rubio, maybe Trump but I don't think so. It was more about the dumbass Fox News talking head. And he wiped my comment. It was not an attack on any candidate or supporter or an endorsement of any candidate, and it was removed.

I think you are the one spinning. Politics was long part of the ONT. Sure, along with guns, boobs, pudding cups and all the rest. But, politics too. Before Maet decided to do the full ban, he was doing lesser ones like shutting down a discussion of Canadian Ted's eligibility to run for POTUS. He said he would allow the discussion until midnight, but then after that the discussion had to end.

He was biased against Trump and he acted accordingly.

654 banned overly heated discussion.

During the primaries, I un-subscribed to both pro-Trump and anti-Trump sources.

The pro-Trump forces because they were nigh-fanatical about Trump, while bashing the likes of Cruz. Resubscribed to most of them later.

The anti-Trump... well, they kind-of stayed that way and I never resubscribed.

Posted by: mindful webworker - that's so last year at August 11, 2017 01:55 AM (MZVOx)

655 Actually, I had comments removed for mentioning what Trump had said about Hillary (that nobody likes her) and another one where I said that I thought Trump would do well in the general because he could get the Reagan Democrats to vote for him. Trump's name in a comment would get the comment removed.

Posted by: Anon Y. Mous at August 11, 2017 01:46 AM (pvjTE)

I think, under the circumstances, that it was easier to enforce a "zero-mentions" rule for Trump on the ONT, than it would have been to make a determination as to whether or not a specific "mention" was provocative. The first case simply means a determination of fact, and can be done without bias, even by a script. The latter involves a value judgment, and maybe some tea-leaf reading wrt the poster's intent.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at August 11, 2017 01:55 AM (iPbwM)

656 644. Yep. Better bet is to sow - as I think TGE has been, from his public statements - discord between Kim and the PRC and, by extension, his generals. The goal is to make them engage in anticipatory retaliation - Kim moves on generals, generals move on Kim - against each other. PRC must have a guy in there ready to go. They know what happens if PDRK collapses - millions of norks on their land.

That's certainly true. It would be a tough job for anyone to try and interpret every comment and then to enforce some kind of fuzzy "provocative" standard. But, he made it tough for himself because he would occasionally put up Trump or Cruz items in his post. Then the rule was you could talk about his items, but you couldn't bring up any other Trump or Cruz stuff. With that rule, he couldn't even run a script.

671 This is just my opinion, but I think Lil' Kim is just playing brinksmanship. He has a great life (his people don't but that's communism for you.) He WANTS respect. He wants to be seen as a great man, or at least a dangerous one. He wants concessions.

I highly doubt he will try to nuke Guam. If he fails, what does he do then? He will be a laughingstock. "Look at Lil' Kim his firecracker did not go 'pop!'" I am sure the internet would have a few million memes deriding him in around 27 minutes.

So I think he will just try to see how far his leash is. Notice it is now "I will fire missiles 'around' Guam." He is playing the backseat game "I'm not touching you" so that the rest of the world community will take his side if we respond.

Of course, I could be completely wrong and he is a delusional psycho.

Or I could be right and he is still a delusional psycho.

MEA was worth getting, imo. Played it from start to finish, and enjoyed it. Yes, there were some issues with it, but nowhere near the level that the online reviewers made it out to be. Best guess on my part is that a bandwagon effect got started with those, and all of the reviewers rushed to get in their licks against MEA, Bioware, and most importantly EA to prove they were just as bona fide as the other reviewers.

A forum I frequent has a thread up on the game that gets revisited every now and again (usually when someone asks if there's any news about a storyline DLC - none so far). It's been noted on more than one occasion that only a couple of people who say they've played the game dislike it. The vast majority of the people posting in the thread who've played it had a lot of fun doing so.

Bioware. I have historically loved Bioware. I still think Andromeda was a lights out concept, great gunplay, but everything else was shittily implemented and conceived. I should not have to tell BIOWARE that they need to make interesting characters.

This. It is jarring to play one of the earlier games and compare the characters and how the story is implemented. The concept is just fantastic. 600 years and you are in a different galaxy. No support, complete and total frontier. Wackiness.

The characters are the problem. They are not bad, just... bland as dishwater. Aside from Drack who is Wrex/Grunt, just older.

I have it and I have not finished it. The combat is ok. The story sucks. Its just a constant reminder of how they badly fucked up the ending of ME3. Ryder is a poor Shepard, the Krogan and the Turian are the only interesting companions and they're a bit lacking.

And while I said the combat is ok, the removal of your ability to give orders to your squad and select their guns and variation in the their costumes is pathetic. The decision to "There are no more classes and you can access all of the abilities" was dumb. I never go and switch it up because its pointless.

And the crafting system is absolute shit.

716 To add to the MEA comments...

I don't know if it's been confirmed or not, but the general chatter is that MEA ended up the way it did because Bioware sent the high end team to do Anthem while having a secondary team do MEA. They'd better hope that Anthem does well because the reviews were so viciously negative that I wouldn't be surprised if EA has decided to abandon the ME franchise.

Right. Forgot about PeeBee. Evidently someone over at Bioware likes her personality type, though, because she's basically a slightly less stupid version of the elf party member in DA:I.

Or in other words, we're probably doomed to see more characters like her in future Bioware games.

723 As for Anthem, you can't really trust anything they've shown so far. That was very basic alpha gameplay. And the dialogue was not in game dialogue. It was "mic trick" dialogue. Voiceover actors talking how "real gamers" talk. Of course they don't actually talk like that. And if you played MEA on multiplayer before the first patch you'd have a great example of the annoyance of people with mics. Because when they first released the game all mics were automatically on and so I had to spend way too much time muting all the dumbasses in the middle of a firefight.

But frankly after seeing what they've shown so far, and that its likely going to be heavy on the multiplayer focus, it looks too much like "For Honor" but with ships instead of Knights, Samurai and Vikings. So I'll have to wait on that as well.

He's not Shepard. And he's not even Hawke or The Inquisitor for Dragon Age. And both of them had to embark on the journey of novice to HERO. Part of the problem I think was their decision to ditch the Paragon/Renegade system. And I can't help but think that is because of the SJWism aversion to what are "Good/Bad" decisions. And maybe again relating to the shit ending of ME3 where the "Paragon" ending is doing precisely what the bad guy wanted to do and the "Renegade" ending is doing precisely what you goal for 3 entire games has been, and them having that pointed out so much and "Well fuck you no more "good/bad" decisions!

The thing about Shepherd also was it served a vital story point (and actually did a pretty different thing in terms of roleplaying.) You were not just stepping into the shoes of a character you could play however you wanted, you were stepping into the shoes of a by God Big Darn Hero. The interrupts were push someone out a window like an anti-hero.

Ryder was much more of a traditional RPG character. The problem is this is still Mass Effect. The interrupts are for things like "Give Jaal's mother a hug." Really?

I still love the concept. It is a great one. And the game itself is still a lot of fun, it just raises a lot "If they had done this..." things.

I'm not sure what there was to negotiate. China owned Hong Kong. Britain rented it for 100 years, had about a trillion $ worth of shit built on it and then their lease ran out - as per the contract.

There wasn't anything to negotiate. China got, what could be called, the greatest rental deal in all of recorded history. THey did nothing and ... poof! They were the proud owners of a world financial hub and fully built modern city-state.

749 TPOP, here's where the leverage came from:

Although Hong Kong Island and Kowloon had been ceded to the United Kingdom in perpetuity, the control on the New Territories was a 99-year lease. The finite nature of the 99-year lease did not hinder Hong Kong's development as the New Territories were combined as a part of Hong Kong.

But it is of course much more complicated than even that. Best is to read the wiki entry on the handover; the Brits and Hong Kong itself wrested concessions from the PRC, which the PRC is trying to crawfish on.

Greenlight was shit too. I would say one problem now is that Pay to Get On is at too low of a point. The asset flippers will risk that $100 and hope they can sucker enough people to buy it to make that back plus some. If they are actually interested in cleaning up the shit show they'll likely have to increase that pricepoint higher which might get to the level that it could hurt some legitimate indie developers.

Well that is absolutely true, per jackass.com. That's their number. August is off to a slow killin' start, I think mainly due to the weather. Shootings go down there during heavy rains/snows or bitter cold. It's been rainy.

Ever had your earlobe thumped when it was kickass cold outside? Hurts like a mofo. Now imagine getting dick-shot in the freezing rain. Fuckity. No fun at all.

763 I think the main point behind Susan Rice's comment on just let the NK's have nukes is the Leftist view no country is better than any other.

It's deeper than just moral relativism or situational ethics.
It's philosophical relativism. They have completely divested themselves of their ability to make value judgments. The only evil in their worldview is making value judgments.

Having argued with a lot of idiot Leftoids lately, I've come to the conclusion that part of what's driven it is a conflation between the Theory of Relativity (actual science) and Relativism, which are entirely unrelated things...

But to a brain-dead college-age idiot with an education a mile wide and an atom deep (as education is these days, to provide imbeciles with an illusory brilliance), they think they're being scientific with their "nothing is better than anything else" approach to life, having conveniently forgotten that science only works in a universe where there are objective realities to observe and learn from.

In the Judeo-Christian tradition, Man gave up immortality and paradise to eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Western Leftists think that if they can return that knowledge of morality they will, in turn, be returned to the immortal paradise of Eden.

Of course, that only goes for the really intelligent leftists. Most leftists just hate themselves and abhor their fathers and are looking to do anything to bring total destruction to everything familiar.

769 Up early: Chicago Tribune:

Sales of soda have declined, but the 200 million plus they expect to receive is wonderful. (for who?) Philadelphia has had more time to know what to expect from the tax. But they are all saying the costs of hospital care will decrease because of less soda consumption? Lets not talk about the $50,000 plus for each gun shot shall we!!! And in Chicago, EBT users are exempt.

That's also true, although some element of their intellectually bankrupt philosophy gets regurgitated by the rank and file on a regular basis. They may not understand it, and they damn sure can't articulate it, but they've internalized at least parts of it.

It's how they lie to themselves and convince themselves that they're good people, it gives them an excuse to condemn others for failing to live up to an utterly insane standard, and if they're condemning others for moral failings (even if their moral standard is utterly twisted), obviously they're the good guys.

But it's never truly about the standard, it's about the condemning. It's a vehicle for transferring their self-hate to others who don't share it. That pharasaical sanctimony smothers any cognitive dissonance that might arise from their contradictory beliefs or self-hatred, and as long as they can maintain that smug satisfaction they get from condemning others, they can persist in it indefinitely.
