Thursday Night's Ont is Cuter Than a Bug's Ear

Welcome to the Thursday night ONT. Rosh Hashanah began last night, so for Morons who are members of the Tribe, Leshana tovah! Ace wrote about Valerie Plame letting her anti-semite freak flag fly earlier, but he missed the best part:


Heh. The Mossad: A security service and a top notch Twitter troll. Jews. Is there anything they CAN'T do?

Awwwwe-some

If you read the morning rant, there was a great film clip posted of a little girl feeding herself with her feet. Here's another in that vein.


The thing about children born with disabilities is that they don't know they have disabilities. They inhabit the body they received, and they tend to just go do what they need to do regardless, like the little girl eating with her feet and this boy helping his friend. While I certainly wish that no child was disabled, that fact that some are should serve as an inspiration to those of us who aren't, and that's one of the real tragedies of countries that claim they are “eliminating” Downs Syndrome by murdering children who have it. WE, you, I, everyone else, humanity, are so much poorer for not having them in our lives.


Disturbing Trend

Governments turn tables by suing public records requesters

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction
-Ronald Reagan

Related, in response to a request to name 3 unique things about Sweden:


This first is about to change, inshallah, IYKWIMAITYD. The second....it's just such a foreign concept to me. Has that ever, ever, ever worked out well for ANYONE in the long run? It's like watching someone hit themselves in the face with a hammer over and over:

“My head hurts” * SMASH *
“You're hitting yourself with a hammer”
“No, that's not it” * SMASH *

SMDH.

Jam on meat? Tasty. Not pork though, see point 1.


Was There Life Before Photoshop?

Someone on Twitter pointed out that North Korea's latest propaganda photo looked like the cover of a Pink Floyd album. It wasn't long before someone had obliged him:


Now, personally I would have gone with “A Momentary Lapse Of Reason”, but still, that's fantastic. It got me thinking. I wonder how many other NK propaganda photos would make good Pink Floyd album covers? So I went looking for NK propaganda photos. The surprising answer to that question is “A lot of them”, but I only had time to make 1:

Nature is Horrifying


Want your dolly, little girl?

No? You sure? There's another one you can play with right over here.

Wasps.jpg


Still don't want to play? OK, well, I'll just leave you with this picture of a squid that has HUMAN TEETH!

TEETH.jpg


Scooped!


Well, Ace beat me to the punch by doing a post on the “Straight men are the white people of black people” idiocy, But here's another jaw dropping headline.

Sisco.jpg

The incessant rewriting of history to feed a narrative is crazy. The ONT reached out to Avery Brooks for comment:

Hawk.jpg

I always wanted to see Brooks do a DS9 scene in Hawk persona. "It don't matter if you ready, not ready Du-KAT" *sunglasses on* "Federation take you, 24/7" *Smile/hiss*


GET AWAY FROM ME YOU MONSTER!




Holodomor


I'm sick and tired of the Antifa pussies yammering on about Fascists and how evil they are and that they tried to commit genocide and blah, blah, blah. Yes, they are evil, and despicable and the ash heap of history is too good for them. BUT. Your side, the fucking Communists, isn't any better, and there's a new book out to remind us of that.

The forgotten Holocaust: How Stalin starved four million to death in a grotesque Marxist experiment


I killed more people tonight than I have fingers on my hand. I shot them in cold blood and enjoyed every minute of it. I pumped slugs in the nastiest bunch of bastards you ever saw and here I am calmer than I've ever been, and happy too. They were Communists, Lee. They were red sons of bitches who should have died long ago...

19 Valerie Plame is an example of 2 things I have been saying for ever:

1) It is the LEFT that is anti-semitic

2) The use of the term Neo-Con now a days, no matter where that term originated, is used by the Left to divide us and ridicule us..There is no need for some of us to also use it and help them. It is also, or has become, and anti-semitic term all by itself

20 Baby Sister Update

Busy day for Joyce. First up, from dear friend Jessica B:

"Had a great day with Joyce today. We really checked some things off her to-do list. Which is the best way to ease her active mind.

We loaded up in our work truck and took a tour of the hurricane damage in our yard see new pic in Gallery).

Picked up some supplies she needed, went thrift shopping - although didn't buy anything, she treated me to lunch then spent an hour or so at her house coloring in her new book and drinking coffee.

Although she thinks she's "slowing down" she's actually has more strength, coordination, motor skills and quick wit then she realizes.

It was a fun day.

I'm whooped! She needed a girlfriend fix. And I'm sure Hubby needed her to have a g-f fix.

We were together 5 hours.

When I left she said, "Now when do we do this again?"

Thanks, Jess!

A little later, she called me to wish us a Happy New Year - sweet!!

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

35 Reminds me, last week, I was at the Seattle Aquarium. (Neat place, but Baltimore's is better.) Anyway, they host two giant pacific octopuses, and at feeding time, the people who tend to them gave a long talk about giant pacific octopuses, their lives, their diets, their reproductive habits, and their environment. At the end of the lecture, she asked if there were any questions.

40 It's funny that Swedes trust the state more than their families.

That's the same state that imported so many muzzies into their country that there are now more than 50 no-go zones, where Swedish police won't enter because the muzzies are so hostile that it's not worth the risk to the cops' lives.

Hope these dummies enjoy spending the rest of their lives working to fund all the welfare benefits that all their new muzzie countrymen will be sucking up, as they are cursing them and killing them and demanding the imposition of sharia law.

83 I received my 1000 rounds of fmj rounds for my cheap 380 acp Obamacare handgun, plus 50 rounds jhp in case I ever carried for personal defense. I kinda wish I'd bought 9mm instead, but this was a cheap gun I figured I'd carry out in the woods maybe. But only threat here ever might be big bobcats protecting their young ... or crazed dems in case I'm doxxed that I post on AoS. ha

there have been a few cougars and even black bear not too far away ... but even they have not attacked humans. Still, a little more power than a 22, the day may come it will be useful.

84 hey weird dave ... did you get that hard drive set up?
the one that said your partition was not PC compliant or some such?


Yea,. I did, thanks. Now I'm working on a hanging windows update. Frustrating. I found a Microsoft qa that tells me what to do in DOS. I know exactly what they are saying, and how to do it, just not sure of the actual commands format (what to actually type at the CMD prompt.) Maybe you can tell me?

"1. Restart the computer in safe mode (to restart in safe mode keep tapping F8 key during restart).

2. Click in start and in Start search box type CMD.

3. In the list Right click on CMD and click Run as Administrator.

4. At the command prompt, type net stop cryptsvc.

5. Rename C:\windows\System32\Catroot2 to Catroot2.old.

6. Open C:\windows folder, and then rename the SoftwareDistribution folder as SoftwareDistribution.old.

7. At the command prompt, type net start cryptsvc and press enter

8. Restart the computer in normal mode

9. Run the updates and verify if you are able to get the updates without any errors."

This was followed by the image of loudmouthed, arrogant POS snowflakes who have never had to work or make any effort. It was all handed to them. And they still piss and moan and make demands about things that any sane person wouldn't even notice.

I have no real problem with the ribbon itself (although I wonder that they should charge a small nominal fee and donate to cancer research of some sort.)

This leads into my real problem. Well it is twofold:

One, how is wearing a ribbon in game- which is very hard to see given all the chaos on screen if there is no money or actual sacrifice on your part to help carry out said advocacy? Even the NFL players, as stupid as they are, are actually brokering some currency (the credibility of the league- don't laugh) in order to advocate for a cause they believe in- no matter how wrong they are.

Second is the escape factor. One of the reason anyone plays any game is to get a certain measure of escape from the day to day. As another commentor noted: Is there anyone who is connected to the internet, but who somehow doesn't already know about cancer? Who is suddenly going to ask: "What's that ribbon?" in chat and will finally be exposed and have their awareness level raised?

I have no problem with gestures- just empty ones.

175 Looks like WD is installing Win7. But it is a disk with some age on it. So it gets clobbered with a zillion Windows updates. Problem is sometimes they come down in the wrong order and sometimes dependencies get broken in ways that it can't sort automatically so you have to trick it.

So let's say you got fix xxxxx9 installed and it included something that was newer than in xxxxxx4 and then xxxxxx5 tries to install and it says it can't because 4 isn't installed, and 4 can't install because 9 put newer files there.

These instructions are faking it out by renaming the catalog file so that the patches won't find the newer patch in the way.

When the truth is probably that Microsoft is trying to break any Windows that's not 10.

This was IBM, but MS learned from IBM, who was known to be deceptive themselves. Their PC-DOS was 100% the same as MS's (even developed at MS since IBM took CP/M from Digital Research). And if you bought an upgrade package from IBM, they would look at the first two bytes of the boot sector. If it said 'PC' (followed by 'DOS'), they could upgrade you. If it said 'MS', then they told you it was incompatible and you should buy a full install.

224 The T-2 Buckeye:

All T-2 Buckeyes were manufactured by North American Aviation at Air Force Plant 85, located just south of Port Columbus Airport in Columbus, Ohio. A total of 609 aircraft was built during the production run.

When I was a kid, I had a friend whose Dad worked for North American, and gave me a beautiful packet of North American airplanes (pictures suitable for framing), including a picture of a formation of T-2 Buckeyes.


I used to drive by that factory all the time, out on East 5th Avenue in Columbus. At one time, the factory built the center fuselage of the B-1 bomber. I think that was the last aircraft manufacturing done there.

60 years ago, before a lot of us were born, or were just little snots, Lady L's Dad was working for North American, designing airplanes, making things happen.

He, and so many men like him, turned the page of history.

236 Avery Brooks is a space cadet personally. He's very... crazy. But in a nice way. Great job in his roles though, I loved him as Hawk. Never bought Robert Urich as Spenser, but Avery was great. The woman that played Susan was well cast too; just like the woman in the books I wanted to see her hit by a bus and carried away, never to be seen again. Belson and Quick were well cast as well.

Except that when all was said and done, Bush chose to commute Libby's prison sentence rather that issuing a pardon. Libby was still on the hook for the $250K fine, plus community service and probation. And, he still was a convicted felon, so he had to surrender his law license.

I always assumed there was more to it than we knew, and that Bush was pissed at him about something, so he only let him off the hook on prison.

325 Back in junior high we took what was called mechanical drawing (drafting) as one of the shop classes, along with metal working, wood shop and ceramics. The teacher wanted us to rotate the pencil as we drew to keep a line of even thickness. Not an easy thing to do without a lot of practice. That class of boys went through a LOT of erasers.

I inherited the drafting set my grandfather used professionally in the 1920s and 30s. It was designed to use ink, not pencil. Line thickness was adjusted by a screw that closed and opened the jaws of the instruments. I never really got the hang of it. Just as well I became an English major.

I think it would amuse Gramps that I now prefer fountain pens and dip pens for writing and sketching.

326 One of the big advantages old time engineers, drafters and machinists had they were all artists that were allowed to talk with each other. And likely knew at least a little about what it took to do all those jobs. Not true today. Hell most engineers at my job have no clue how their car works or how to fix it.

But, but, I have been assured by large numbers of my self-anointed
betters that a) all cultures are equal (except ours is worse), b) every
individual in every society yearns to be free to act in his own best
interest, and c) islam is a religion of peace, so how could establishing
a Jeffersonian Constitutional Republic in Iraq possibly go wrong?
Posted by: Hrothgar


"With the various tribes/factions present there I could see how Bush and the powers that be could think a republic might work."

Bush and Bush elder were globalists ... the early protestants separated the church/kings from the power of the state, which new American government itself they then broke into divided pieces that would limit each other, hence limiting the control/power over the people, with the vote/people being (in theory) the ultimate power.

Protestants specifically, (ignoring Christian doctrine) had a greater belief in separating top down power from control over individual liberty. It was protestants that understood "power corrupts" in both religious and government power structures.

Individuals need to form "limited power" groups because groups have higher power. But evil knows how to use such group power (Genghis then) ... or divisions based in color, race, religion (for Dems now) ... any group/faction will work to exert (identity politics) power. Christianity was the upgrade to the tribal Judaism, and Protestantism was the "upgrade" to papal top down control of the Catholic church. Power to the People!

I put "upgrade" in quotes because Paul said almost everyone had left him at the end of his ministry and he was in prison. The middle man of a Pope, whose ring had to be kissed, came later, and much of Catholic (and Protestant) tradition, is actually completely pagan in origin. (see the original "Babylon mystery religion" ... which shows the pagan basis of Easter (facing East), or ChristMass (winter solstice), much more.

But tradition is a powerful thing. Protestants tended toward the individual right to read for themselves and make their own choice based on study, not blind obedience, to top down mandates. Trump is no theologian, but he said a nation's leader must hear/serve his people, not be their master. That system works when people are "raised right" (golden rule), does not work (for liberty) when they are trained to be slaves to an earthly master. (but slavery works to build pyramids or Chinese corporate sweatshops)

Americans assume freedom always wins since we know little else, yet slavery/oppression has been the rule. We win if we put high value on individual liberty, over slave produced goods.

We took it in 7th or 8th grade. Boys only; the girls had Home Ec. We were well enough behaved but it must have been frustrating for the teacher. Each shop class only lasted a couple of months so unless someone showed natural talent there wasn't time to develop much skill. Too bad.

Well no flame war with me anyways. But even if Martin Luther's intent was 'salvation
by faith'. The real salvation in America was the work ethic married with capitalism. Which pulled everyone up through competition.

Instapundit (I think) had a link to a Strategy Page article the other day that claimed that Rocket Boy is hoping to get to the point where he can engage in nuclear blackmail. If he can successfully do that, then his problems are essentially solved.

Of course, what he fails to realize is that if he ever reaches the point where he can engage in nuclear blackmail (and his blackmail target will almost certainly be the wealthiest country in the world), then the US will quickly move to dismantle his regime. I think even Obama would have reacted in that fashion.

I, however, am a cynic and have no doubt Sir Golf's a Lot would have simply funneled the blackmail money to the Norks and called it "necessary humanitarian aid."

410 @293 I hope these people can be given prosthetics.
-------------------

There are a lot of organizations that specialize in making prosthetics for kids. Because the kids will quickly outgrow their prosthetics, it's considered okay to use 3D printers to make cheap artificial limbs. Expensive ones don't make any sense because the kids will outgrow them so quickly.

Because "cheap" is considered "optimal" in this situation, it becomes much easier for charitable organizations to make limbs widely available to kids in the US.

BOSTON (CBS) - In a surveillance video now going viral on social media a young man with a gun and a knife attempts to rob a Starbucks. While he is engaged in conversation with the cashier, a bystander picks up a chair and attacks the would-be robber. In the ensuing struggle, the bystander is stabbed in the neck, but manages to wrestle the knife away from the culprit, and ends up stabbing him 17 times. Now, the parents of the robber are threatening to sue the Good Samaritan, claiming that he used excessive force.

429 I would very much appreciate prayers, from those here who so inclined, for my sweet dad. He was moved to Hospice today. He is almost 98. He was a project manager on both the T2B (he designed its cockpit) and the Vigilante. I try hard to remember the man he was when I visit him.

Posted by: Ladylibertarian at September 21, 2017 10:10 PM (TdMsT)




I'd built every model kit of the Vigilante I could find, by time I was 15. It was THE airplane in my teenaged regard, back in the mid' 70s.

Our Dads were from a species that largely, no longer exists.

Mine first enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1947, as a Baker's Assistant, serving aboard the U.S.S. Valley Forge, and did so throughout the Korean conflict.

He received his Honorable Discharge, and returned home to his native South Carolina, where he rejoined High School, and attained his Diploma, and graduation.

Whereupon, he re-enlisted in the U.S. Navy, and was accepted to Submarine School, graduated, and went on to the Fleet.

He earned his Dolphins aboard Fleet Class boats, and subsequently served aboard Guppy Class boats. And then, was accepted by Rickover himself, into Nuclear Power School in Idaho Falls, from which he graduated.

He then served aboard a succession of Fast Attack boats, patrolling what's known as Westpac, cumulating in service aboard the John Quincy Adams.

The Adams was in Pearl Harbor, enjoying a Port Call in '71. Dad was ashore, watching an NFL game in a CPO wardroom, when a massive heart attack took him to the deck.

They got him to the hospital in time, and he taught his rating in San Diego, till they retired him in '74, against his will.

Longer story shortened, he signed on with a tiny company in Orlando, FL., called "Orlando Laser".

Which, was bought and became "Litton Laser Systems", and he was a test-bench technician at that point.

He concurrently worked his way through an ITT electronics course, and attained his A.A. as and Electronics Engineer.

By time he retired from Litton, he held the title of Senior Prototype Test Engineer.

Sadly, he passed in January, 2010. That heart condition finally cashed is it's due.

@ Ladylibertarian.

My Dad and yours, were brothers that had never met.

They will, soon, though.

I know they will become eternal friends.

'Tween now and then though.

You're IN my thoughts and my prayers.

He's already been there. Not just Un but the Kims before him.

This ain't the first nuke test they've run.

Not at all. His threat is to vaporize Seoul.

then the US will quickly move to dismantle his regime.

It's a nice thought but the US has been playing patsy-cakes with the Nork retards for a long time, now. In large part because the South Koreans keep doing everything they can to make sure that the Norks aren't attacked - which only makes the eventual resolution of this whole fiasco worse.

The Norks are China's pet, anyway. And we haven't done shit to stop the Norks and we haven't done shit to China for any of this, either. We have been total pussies about the Norks.

Alas, every kit I'd ever done, was discarded when I dissolved my late Mom's estate in 1978. I was on emergency leave from the USAF, and had no time for minor details, as compared to doing everything that needed done.

Tough gig for a kid of 19, but I got it all done, and all of it well under the radar of any probable court.

Safe so far. Came close to rear-ending some dipshit in a minivan near Payson. He was doing 55 in a 70 zone in the middle lane, and I pulled into the left lane to pass, and just as I got up to him, the left lane disappeared. Utah I-15 is bad for that. If you want to stay in a lane, you have to keep changing lanes.I nailed the brakes, and missed the dummy by 2 feet, and then he pulled over; there was not a lot of traffic, and he should have been in the curb lane.

Not even in Chinese food. Never liked sweet and sour pork. It's why I hate pineapple on pizza (to revisit last night's ONT.)

What works for me is the combo of sweet and salty - like salted caramel ice cream or pretzels with chocolate. Sweet and savory is gross to me.

483 Sweet and salty meat. I'm going to smoke either a pork loin or pork shoulder this weekend for my fathers 87th birthday. I have some really salty rub that will probably be ok. But do you have better rub recipes? My thought at the moment is use the salty stuff but keep it moist with apple cider hourly. Removing some salt but apple and pork are heavenly. I've only used the premix rub on ribs so far maybe on these bigger cuts its just right. thoughts suggestions appreciated. Oh it's a pellet smoker if that matters.

491 i stopped using salt in my rubs back in the 90's... the results were too salty for me, and i like salt. my guests were turned off by it. and yes, i know everyone says to use salt. my mileage varied.

i don't put sugar in my rubs either, because it burns, even at 225*F. if you want sweet, put it on at the very end, or make your sauce sweet.

i'd say smoke the shoulder over the loin: loins are lean, and can dry out real easy. upside is they cook faster, being smaller.

suggestion: slather mustard on the outside of the roast (yellow or spicy) then cover heavily with rub, or admix the rub into the mustard first.

keep it simple (granulated garlic[not garlic salt], fine black pepper, a skosh of ginger [don't over do it or you'll ruin the meat], ancho or chipotle chili powder, and anything else that strikes your fancy and goes with the other flavors) i have no idea what's in your spice cabinet.

put the paste on the night before if you can, or at least awhile before going on the fire. run temp at 225 or so, no more than 250. depending on your cooker and how much you're cooking, start to finish should be 12-18 hours. look for an internal temp, away from the bone, of at 185 or so, then pull from fire, tent, and let rest in a pan, preferably on a rack. this will allow grease to run off, prior to pulling the pork.

the mustard/rub mix will make a crust that you can break off first. set it to one side, then, after you shred the pig, you can decide if you want to add any back in, or if you're happy with the flavor as is.

it never hurts to add some apple juice to the pulled pork in it's container, as it will help keep the meat moist, without adding any over riding flavors to the meat.

i'll bring the beer, if you send me an invite.

Posted by: redc1c4 at September 22, 2017 03:22 AM (74nHm)

493 this bit just gave me an idea: what if i made my paste with mustard AND a bit of apple sauce? i think you'd have to get a lot of the moisture out of the applesauce, so the paste isn't runny, but you could reserve that and add it to the piggy after it's pulled.

use spiced apple sauce, and you just kicked up your rub mix too. and home made apple sauce? awesome on top of awesome sauce.

X-ray! thanks for asking your question. i now have something new to try, next time i fire up the Weber Smoky Mountain.

502 "Antifa" are almost ENTIRELY Fascist.

Starting with the street thug violence to silence political opposition - a tactic perfected by Fascists and used by every Fascist Party that ever came to power.

Then there's the Marxism - of the particular Fascist variety whereby the State controls the economy through indirect, rather than direct, means. Through endless regulation rather than by nationalizing industry. Obamacare is the prime example here in the US today. This is precisely how Hitler changed the relationship between the state and the economy in Germany, and he went on about it endlessly in numerous speeches. He thought he was so clever in modifying Marx in this manner.

Then, of course, there's the anti-semitism. Can't be a Leftist, anywhere, at any time, unless you're a rabid anti-semite.

Literally the ONLY difference between "antifa" and other Fascist movements is that they are globalists while Fascists are typically Nationalists - they love their countries while groups like "antifa" despise the very concept of the nation-state.

540 And now I am thinking about Sweden more than I would, usually.

I went to the official website of Sweden (sweden.se)

I clicked on the link for 10 myths about Sweden:

#5 Alcohol is expensive and hard to get hold of

By international comparisons this is true. Sweden's state alcohol monopoly, Systembolaget, has as its stated mission 'to minimise alcohol-related problems by selling alcohol in a responsible way, without profit motive'. So its stores are in the bizarre position of not really wanting you to buy their products.


That may be the most disturbing thing I have read today.
