Saturday Overnight Open Thread (10/21/17) Short But Sweet Edition

(The ONT dilemma)

*****


An interesting look at The myth about dirty jobs, minimum wage and illegal immigrants.

What’s really ironic is that the people who are trying to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour are the same people who say, “Mexicans will do jobs that Americans don’t want.”

Get rid of the illegal Mexicans and see how fast that wage goes up to $15 on its own, no government intervention needed.

But, of course, that would require caring about the single mom, the ex-con trying to straighten out his life, the lonely elderly guy who wants to go back to work, the diabetes patient who needs a wheelchair because of his swollen feet, and the guy who finally kicked drugs and needs to start over. That would require having a social conscience.


*****

Wet behind the ears mayor of Stockton, CA attempts to create Utopia. Basic Income.

IN BRIEF

Stockton, California, is about to become the first city to test government-supported universal basic income in the U.S. The program is the idea of the city's 27-year-old mayor and will be primarily funded by the basic income advocacy group Economic Security Project.

27 year old attempting to do what mankind hasn't figured out over how many centuries? FFS I have scars older than this little prick.

The ONT is always looking out for you. Male to Female Sex Ratio here in the USA.


*****

The dating world. Tinder brings out ancient mating behavior.

Tinder brings out the basic mating instincts of men and women as they choose between beauty and brains, a study has found. Men using the smartphone dating app tend to select “hot” candidates, while women are more likely to prize intelligence and stability. The findings may come as little surprise but suggest that Tinder reinforces ancient mating behaviour that evolved to help us survive, say scientists.

*****

When you hear the term "Black Market" what do you think of? Bootleg booze? Cigarettes? Dope? Try SPAM.

Hawaii is under siege by Spam bandits. Individuals in the state have pulled off a series of brazen canned-meat heists. The thefts have become so common, the Washington Post reports, that some shops are protecting the mystery-meat gold by locking it in plastic cases usually reserved for pricier items.

NSFW


OK. Which one of you Morons pulled this off?

Police are investigating what is believed to be the biggest sex toy heist in history after brazen thieves helped themselves to around £45,000 worth of adult products.

The bizarre theft happened at an erotic trade fair in Berlin this week, and the victims have voiced their fury.


Fun Toys London had a stand at the annual Venus-Berlin exhibition, and staff were packing up when its boxes were stolen.


The balls on those people.


*****

Wow. What a nasty roommate. Looks like she'll have a room to herself for up to six years.

A Tennessee collegian poured liquid from the toilet into her dorm roommate’s water bottles, according to police who arrested the student on a felony tampering charge.

As detailed in a court filing, victim Erein Tiller this month told investigators that she recently “observed a decline in her health status consisting of weight loss, appetite suppression, and diarrhea and did not know the reasoning why.”

*****


Dogs vs. People




*****

Ouch! That's going to leave a mark or two.

*****

NSFW Australian women are insecure.

Thousands of Australian women are rushing to go under the knife in ambitious quests to emulate the newly trending 'plump rumps' of their celebrity icons.
The rounded derrieres famously sported by Australian rapper Iggy Azalea and Kim Kardashian are believed to have inspired a generation of impressionable women.
More women than ever are looking to achieve the curvaceous bottoms, signalled by a giant surge in demand for Brazilian 'butt lift' surgery around the country.

*****


Who do you think did it? DUH!

*****


In school, birthday parties = good. Penis parties = you're probably going to be fired.

“In the videos, we see how they were preparing for the surprise party. And as the boy walked in, they surprised him with a hat that had a penis attached to the top and a string to be able to pull it so it can get erected,” said the mother.

The party included rubber penises, penis candles, penis hats and more.

“There was a cake that had a lollipop shaped as a vagina,” said the mother.

1954, Born on this day, Eric Faulkner, singer, Bay City Rollers, (1975 UK No.1 single 'Bye Bye Baby', plus 11 other UK top 20 singles', 1976 US No.1 single 'Saturday Night').

*****

Buzzed. Drunk. Genius Award Winner Black Out Drunk.

Customers at a pub were left horrified when a drinker performed a sex act on a man in front of shocked customers, a court heard.
Lindsay O'Brian, 28, carried out the lewd act on Ian Jones, 37, at the Bodfor pub in Rhyl, in full view of pub-goers on the evening of October 3.
The incident was also captured on the pub's CCTV.
At Llandudno magistrates court, O'Brian's defence solicitor said she was 'ashamed and extremely embarrassed' - and revealed she had no idea what she had done when she woke up in police cells.

30 I spent nearly 7 years in the Republic of Korea. Spam was one of the best black market items on the peninsula. Pay $1.80 for a can of Spam and sell it downtown for $5.00. There are other items just as lucrative but Spam is one of the best.

It could be partly because there is a high Korean population in Hawaii also.

38 "The program is the idea of the city's 27-year-old mayor and will be primarily funded by the basic income advocacy group Economic Security Project."

So the scam is to establish a basic income in a modest-sized city, funded by a nationwide group of rich idiots so that it has an income base much larger than the population can support. And then, when that Potemkin village doesn't immediately collapse because of all the outside buttressing, parade it around as a "success" and a "model" for a federal program that's "proven."

My favorite deposition answer, "I don't recall"

Posted by: Misanthropic Humanitarian at October 21, 2017 10:26 PM (ZTRlp)

45 Copied and pasted from the Pet Thread (about the doggeh vid):

When I first went to Africa, our group (it was a charity trip) visited a schoolhouse, where the students were probably about first graders.

It was utterly bare bones: The teacher had a humble desk and chair, and the students sat on mats. We handed out snacks (wrapped cookies) to the students, and while each of them fiddled a bit with his treat, none of them at all tore into it.

Africa is rife with contradictions: sometimes it's almost a Hobbesian state of nature, and I've also seen where in my experience there is a virtuous respect for moral authority: no doubt those students obeyed their teachers day in and day out.

114 "Stockton, California, is about to become the first city to test government-supported universal basic income in the U.S."

Come on - we've already tested this - it's called Social Security Disability.

Freed of the need to make a living, people on disability become enormously creative, productive, and generally make great use of all that free time.

If that isn't enough, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states did the same thing when oil prices were high - at most, you had to show up a couple of hours a day to a government make-work job, but in any case all citizens got a decent, guaranteed, income. Foreigners were imported to do all the actual work.

As a result, of course, Saudi Arabia underwent a cultural renaissance, and became one of the world powers in art, science, and technology.

Stockton will do every bit as well, methinks.

154 Spam is an acquired taste.

Spend two or three weeks walking around in the middle of nowhere. When you get to the bottom of your pack and the only thing left is a couple of cans of spam you will devour it like a porterhouse with a side of creamed spinach and a double scotch.

Interestingly, the acquired taste will stay with you. Does not mean you seek it out in the grocery store.

Interestingly, the ratio of calories to dollars is pretty high for spam.

What does spam stand for anyway? I always assumed it was for "spare meat."

Posted by: Packer Shareholder

In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "If you don't work you die."
Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew
And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.
As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;
And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

Vienna sausage cans fit in the bottom of a bag, and are a mix of heavily cooked down bits of otherwise unsalvageable chicken and corn syrup. The chicken is cooked down and the minerals and collagen and what-not are extracted along with "meat"
It is pretty nasty, but when you are really empty and/or under a lot of stress, that is what your body craves.

I try to keep a couple of cans with the bail-out kit. It's easier to eat on the run than a can of canned corned beef, it is not nearly as obnoxious when you dribble juice down the front of your coat as sardines, and you can fish the sausages out with the point of a knife, which is a trick you can't do with, say, deviled ham.

Well, everything took longer than expected but was well executed.

Guys that packed our stuff did a fantastic job.

Same with the guys that delivered it.

Thought we were done and all we had to do was get some stuff to storage. Then Mrs. YankeeFifth decided she wanted to look into one box really quick. Then another. Straight downhill after that. Now we have to go through all the boxes before they go to storage, pull about 10% out of each one, tape them back up, and find some place to put the stuff we pulled out. Sigh.

However, Colorado is a really cool place to reside, so far.

What's funny, though, is that the youngest dog doesn't throw a fit when my tuxedo cat sticks his nose in her bowl. Then it's live and let live. Just to protect the youngest dog's breakfast, the same cat gets a few dog crunchies off to the side. (Yes, I know cats aren't supposed to eat dog food, but try and explain that to Tiger.)

432 I don't like licorice candy but do like anisette liqueurs like ouzo (a high school friend brought me some from his family's village after a holiday there). And courtesy of Wiki I just discovered that "arak" is an anisette. I've heard it mentioned in British books and TV series (including some Flashman novels) but never knew what type of liquor it was. Interesting. (Unless it was the Persian version that uses raisins instead.)

And very, very good eats afterwards, in the early evening.

A high point for me. 'Ette Steck brought her pre-WWII Garand, and I got to run two en-block clips of '06 downrange therefrom.

That rifle is amazing. It is fully factory-new-mint condition, so tight, one is immune from "Garand Thumb", and is lazer accurate to boot.

I have to find a way to be named in her will for that rifle.

Y'all have no idea of what fun was had today in Central Texas, shooting guns of every description, eating the finest beef from a ranch-slaughtered steer, and enjoying the fine hospitality from Ben Had and the company of a few dozen of Teh Horde, withal.

That the Astros win, is but icing on the cake.

ALL THE FUN WAS AT TEH MO MEET.

Every thing else, was lessened, accordingly.

What's funny, though, is that the youngest dog doesn't throw a fit when my tuxedo cat sticks his nose in her bowl. Then it's live and let live. Just to protect the youngest dog's breakfast, the same cat gets a few dog crunchies off to the side. (Yes, I know cats aren't supposed to eat dog food, but try and explain that to Tiger.)

That's because 2/3rds of the participants like the way it is.For you morons: that's the judge, the defendant/plaintiff, and the other one.
It is so rigged these days that about 70% of women do the divorce filings.I don't blame them. Why put up with some guy and his smelly socks and bad breath if you can sue for divorce and get the house, the car and half his stuff. Plus if there's kids, you can torture him till they're 18 (and sometimes beyond) over paying for every little thing that the child support is supposed to go for and, and visitation. Changing meetings, taking the kid somewhere when they're supposed to see dad, or if you're clever you can completely turn the kid against him so they hate him and not YOU who filed in the first place.
What a system. What a country. Not for long at this rate.

However, if some dude whacked off into the sock, or potted plant, and some woman came and grabbed it somehow and impregnated herself with it, then I'd say no way.

The sneaky BJ thing is the same thing as the latter, I say at first blush and ponder.

Not that I can't get dressed up, it's just rare and not my preferred lifestyle. Plus, cheaper. Plus, not as much shopping required.

There's a failure rate for every form of birth control, of course, even the pill.

For example, the failure rate of condoms is 14%. The pill is about 5%.

The ol' coitus interruptus (20%) is better than spermicide (26%).

Even vasectomies and tube-tying as a non-zero failure rate. Very small, but non-zero.

563 Evening, Horde!

218 How is everyone doing?
Posted by: Aetius451AD


Physically tired, the satisfied kind, so really good.

Graded my in-laws' (they live next door) driveway yesterday evening and today. Shoveled and dumped ton and a half or so of dirt and gravel.

They are in their mid-80s. BIL handles house maint tasks and I deal with the yard. Mowing, snow removal, tree trimming, etc.

Driveway was rutted at one entrance and made my snow thrower hang up. Bladed out the hump (80 ft long or so). Way more spoil than it seemed! 12 dump cart loads.

Then I mowed and burned brush/deadfall that's been collecting for a year.

So, all in all, a pretty good day for gonna turn 60 in a few weeks.

Occasionally is okay it just seems every woman is doing it and I miss looking a nice hairdos and the faces look nicer framed by hair than that knot.

But I'm sure you carry it off with grace and elegance.

Some people cannot.

And I haven't excluded men from my critique. Running around looking like a hobo is not a good look unless you just crawled out from under a D-10 cat that's threw a track and you're on your way home.

Let's dress up for each other. We will also feel better about ourselves. I get nicer reactions when I clean up even when it's just to the store.

I'm old school. What can I say. I also miss women's sexy voices. Where did they go? And Men's with deep ones. I got mine back after I kicked my painkillers. Didn't know it was gone till it came back.

Nope. Still about 8-10 years.

Women are dying of male diseases now though.

Heart attacks, strokes, and stomach problems from stress of jobs.

So they've gotten equal there.

The female constitution is better equipped and the survival of the fittest has made women longer living as they can continue to care for the offspring and the offspring of their offspring.

Once a man's deposited his sperm, Mother Nature don't need him around anyhow. So unless he's making babies at 65 his longevity genes don't get passed on.

573 >> Once a man's deposited his sperm, Mother Nature
>> don't need him around anyhow.

That's true for lower animals like cats and dogs, mostly. But human offspring take a hell of a lot to raise, and that's there's an evolutionary basis for the woman getting the father to stick around and take care of them.

There are some quirks with that, though.....

Yeah, itchy for sure. How about a man's shirt with the sleeves rolled up? I like to wear Tim's - he loved that look. When I pull out the scrunchie, my hair is wavy, so there's that.

I hear you but we've always been a troop or tribal species so any particular male won't be missed. His duties of protection and hunting can be done by another.

The female however is irreplaceable up to a certain age and the youngsters get imprinted so they tend to stay close which also can be protective of the female.

Long as there's enough young males to throw at the lions, tigers and bears, Oh my, then the species goes on. A particular males genes may not make it.

The longevity genes that get passed on are the alpha males. (and sometimes one of the lower ranks sneaks in a squirt or two).

And the alpha can get worn out pretty quickly.

Can't use mountain gorillas or chimps or Baboons as examples of what our forerunner species had to contend with as they're current environment is totally different than ours was. And of course after a while we started to change that environment. And other factors come into play.

The purpose of the human male is to fight, fuck and die, in that order.

Fight and survive thus proving worth to fuck and pass on genes.

Fuck to pass on genes and stay with woman/kids until later are big enough to feed themselves/run away.

Die to get out of the way and stop consuming resources allowing woman to fuck some other fucker, diversifying the gene pool.

50% of current society feels we can skip the first two steps and go straight to a male die-off 'for the children and the plant.'

596 if you are only intimate with women who have had a hysterectomy (check for the scar), your chances for a "surprise" pregnancy tend towards zero.

however, be forewarned: the procedure is deceptively named.

even with the surgery, they still get hysterical, just like the rest of the pool.

We met on Udate in 2000. We still chuckle and make references to profile items we had in common. "Trendy glasses". Heh.

Her son was 10 when we met. When I got introduced to Miss Debbie, his karate instructor, he informed her the Mrs IMG and I met on the internet. "The internet is GOOD!" Double heh.

We were direct messaging on the site. Her employer had AIM and ICQ and other messaging platforms blocked as well as hotmail and yahoo mail. The also blocked the dating site about a week after we met online (we had not met face to face at that point).

Email was out, since she would have to use work email. I told her "Gimme ten minutes. I'll build a chat website." She was all "Whaaaat?" and I was like, "Waaaait".

Ten minutes (or so) later, I emailed her the IP address and we chatted merrily along.

Conception made me remember something. There is an actual tiny flash of light, visible light, when an egg is fertilized. It had do with zinc ions or something.

After hysterectomy, I think, if ovaries are still functional, an ectopic or something close to it pregnancy can still occur. Low chance. If it does, it's an emergency. Needs to be gotten out of there quickly.

No compromise. Take not prisoners.

I get the feeling you're a big softee inside. It's why you are tough.

I say that cause that's the way I am. Got to be tough to protect myself.

I'm a big squish mostly. Pushover city.

It's why I always say no first cause you can always change a no to a yes. More difficult to go the other way. People start whining and stuff.

My first reaction always used to be to say yes and then I'd regret it.

People used that.

644 An interesting look at The myth about dirty jobs, minimum wage and illegal immigrants.

I got put off Limbaugh in the '90's when he spouted the liberal line about "Immigrants are only doing the jobs Americans won't do."

I've worked in some industries that make a point of hiring only Immigrants(i.e. Illegals) and one thing I noted, the Illegals, if they were in charge, would hire only other illegals.

I found it hard sometimes to get hired if the super was an immigrant. They are just as bigoted if more so than everyone else.

They also would isolate and cause trouble for any American they had to hire.

They were interested in getting their friends and family on the payroll and could care less about legalities or fairness.

They laugh at our open borders. They don't take this country seriously because of it. It's why they believe in a few years the SW will be Mexican again. They believe it's always been their's. (they forget they stole it from the Apaches and the other tribes in the area back in the early 1500's.

But now to them it's theirs and been theirs forever.

If we can't secure our borders, we have NO country.

646 it's been estimated that the entire hispanic population of the southwest by mid-19th century (i.e. what is now u.s.) was no more than 5,000. i don't recall where i read that, what area it covers or when, but i think i read it somewhere.

Glad I was coming up in the low skill job market in the late 70s/early 80s in the Midwest. Didn't really need the money since I had family. But did need experience and the truism work sucks but way less than no work.

Not sure I could have been nearly as successful as my lucky ass has been if I had a chip on my shoulder.

And I'm not rich but I do have 33 plus years of a steady paycheck.

Trust me, that's cold comfort when you find out all you have to live on is SS and the prices of everything is geared for someone making 25k and you're getting 12k max from the gov.

I'm lucky in that I moved to a state which doesn't tax SS and has programs for rebates on property taxes and I bought my trailer outright.

Otherwise I'd be living in a card board box or a shelter about now.

663 Note that as usual, the folks advocating for a basic income are NOT the folks who will contribute to the financing of same.

Which is why the inner cities are in such poor shape. (pun intended)

673 I've been getting hundreds of replies to my tweet stating that that "trans-woman" in Playboy is a man.

It's been very illuminating on just how much the entire "trans" things has percolated through society.

Even amongst actual sciences, the idea that "gender" is separate and distinct from "biological sex" has taken hold. It is repeated as fact in media, news, and kids are being taught that it is fact.

They have co-opted "man", "woman", "he", and "she" and applied it to "gender" and deny that it has to do with "biological sex" and refer to the new "academic" consensus. By co-opting the words, they can make it seem that "gender" was what people always thought and that the very concept of "biological sex" is a recent thing invented by oppressors in order to oppress.

Further, they say that having multiple genders is normal amongst societies around the world, against citing "academic" sources. That such sources have for decades now only furthered that narrative, we are left with no "proof" to the contrary.

Heck, they even say that there are not just two sexes and that biological sex is a spectrum with dozens and dozens of sexes... and can cite "academic papers" from actual scientific fields to this end.

Simply pointing out reason and rationality will no longer work.

This will be a long slog back to rationality. It'll probably take longer than most of our lifetimes.
