Quotes of The Day

Quote I

We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid. Benjamin Franklin

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi come into mind.


Quote II

The price of greatness is responsibility. Winston Churchill


Quote III

Smile in the mirror. Do that every morning and you'll start to see a big difference in your life. Yoko Ono

The AoSHQ has been quite critical of Mitch McConnell and The Stooges the Republican senators. Well, credit must be given where credit is due. President Trump's judicial nominees continue to move through the Senate.

The administration continues to stay the course on judicial appointments. Earlier this month, President Trump renominated 21 judicial picks whose nominations automatically lapsed at the end of 2017.

And Republican Senators continue to do their part as well. Congress has been focused this week on averting a government shutdown, but that hasn’t stopped the Senate from making progress on nominations. Yesterday the Senate Judiciary Committee approved 17 of Trump’s judicial nominees, sending them to the Senate floor for confirmation votes.

What is wrong with Whole Paycheck Whole Foods? The shelves look like something out to the Soviet Union.

Practically since the day Amazon took over, Whole Foods customers have griped about products being out of stock. (You could create, like, a full magazine of bare shelves using only pics that angry Twitter users have posted since last fall.) Consensus is that this inventory problem obviously has to be the fault of Amazon, a boss with a reputation for cost-cutting and slave-driving. But a new Business Insider report today indicates that’s not actually the case: Whole Foods employees tell the site that these problems actually began “before the acquisition,” and blame shortages on a brutal inventory-management system that rolled out nationwide in early 2017 called order-to-shelf, or OTS.

A funny thing happened at the polls in California. The electors voted themselves a tax increase. The taxes aren't going to their intended purposes.

But on Thursday, the staff of the California Water Commission, which must decide by July which water storage projects will receive bond money, raised major concerns. They announced that nearly half of the projects have no public benefits that meet the ballot measure’s rules for getting money, and the rest fall significantly short of providing as much benefit to the public as they would cost.”

This pretty much sums it up.

If you attack a comedian on stage, you might be a pathetic loser.

Comedian Steve Brown got more than heckled while performing when a member of the audience jumped onstage and attacked the comic with his own mic stand and stool.

Brown was performing at The Comedy House in Columbia, South Carolina when the attack went down. According to the Richland County Sheriff’s Department, Brown told officers he spotted the fan — ID’d only as “Marvin — in the audience and “staring into space.” Brown says when he asked the guy if he was ok, Marvin responded, “Don’t f**k with me, man.”


We need more Mic stand control. Close them damn Mic stand show loopholes.

So. California wishes to be governed by illegal immigrants? Illegals will be able to vote in CA elections.

Starting on April 1, 2018, illegal aliens in California who have recently obtained state driver's licenses legally, or obtained them previously by lying about their immigration status, will automatically be registered to vote. Since January 2015, according to the California DMV, A.B. 60, a law passed by the California Assembly, "allows illegal immigrants to the United States to apply for a California driver's license with the CA Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)" [emphasis original]. As of December 2016, more than 800,000 California driver's licenses were issued to illegal aliens under the A.B. 60 law. Additional thousands of illegals may have been granted licenses prior to 2015 because they lied on their driver's license application forms and claimed they were in the country legally. (No proof of legal residence has been required by the California DMV in recent years.)

This will not work out well for the rest of the USA.

Sheriff David Clarke, verbally bitch slapped a snowflake. The snowflake didn't like that and sued Clarke. Clarke won.

Jury finds former Sheriff Clarke's Facebook taunts didn't violate free speech

A federal jury ruled that ex-Sheriff David Clarke’s Facebook posts taunting a man he met on an airplane did not violate the man’s right to free speech, The Associated Press reported Monday.

The jury found that Clarke’s posts did no go far enough to chill the man’s future speech, according to AP.

Many grandchildren idolize their grandparents. Often times they project their wishes and beliefs unto them. Nicholas Soames is no different. Wrong. But no different.

Nicholas Soames, grandson of legendary British WW2 leader Winston Churchill, has attacked President Trump’s climate policies with a claim that Churchill would have opposed President Trump’s climate policies. Soames also claims that cutting carbon emissions “helps your economy grow faster”.


Churchill giving in to the Paris Accords? I'm not feeling it.

The Left continues to destroy everything of social significance in its way. Wedding Cakes, Pizza Parlor owners, The National Anthem and now: Art galleries.

Meanwhile, a different protest movement was celebrating a milestone success: the closure of PSSST, an art gallery located in the predominantly Hispanic neighborhood of Boyle Heights, Los Angeles. The gallery had raised the ire of a group calling itself the Boyle Heights Alliance Against Artwashing and Displacement (BHAAAD), which sees the openings of art galleries in non-white neighborhoods as a kind of cultural violence that facilitates gentrification.

In a farewell statement, PSSST’s owners explained that their staff and artists had become targets for persistent harassment, both online and in person, and that the ongoing controversy had made fundraising impossible. The gallery was a nonprofit that sought to be “an open and dialogue-rich incubator in which artists would be relieved from the common pressures associated with the economies of art production and thereby create new models of sustainability and exchange,” yet that wasn’t to be. BHAAAD’s own statement argued that such a project was really about “channeling philanthropy into destroying neighborhoods” and made a solemn vow: “We will not stop fighting until all galleries leave.”


One wonders what is next on their bucket list of destruction.

Comedian Ron White once said, "You can't fix stupid". He should have added if you're a Genius Award Winner.

BELFAST, Maine -- (KRON) -- Police in Maine have accused a man of punching himself in the face three times to avoid a sobriety test.

Police in the town of Belfast say they found 27-year-old Brian Fogg in his car, stuck in a ditch last week.

Once, twice, three times a Genius.

Simple blood test may detect up to eight forms of cancer. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Researchers from across the United States, as well as Italy and Australia, published a paper demonstrating the test’s capabilities in Science on Thursday. The study, which screened over 1,000 patients known to have cancer and 815 people presumed to be healthy, found that the test could accurately detect cancer when it existed about 70 percent of the time and accurately did not detect cancer more than 99 percent of the time. The test also gave doctors clues about where to look for a tumor in about 83 percent of the cases used. The types of cancers that could be detected include ovarian, liver, stomach, pancreatic, esophageal, colorectal, lung and breast cancers.

California law might allow illegals to vote. But Federal law does not. States have typically had a great deal of leeway in determining exactly how the voting is conducted in their state. But in a situation like this, I wonder if Trump would have enough of an excuse to step in and institute some form of "citizenship check" before anyone in California could vote in an election that contained any Federal offices.

I'm sure California makes it VERY clear which elections they can and can participate in. I am sure there is a clear deliniation on the ballots which are state and which are federal candidates. It is California. Their motto is "We are the most honest people on Earth" so it must be true!

81 @59 What's next? The group sees health food stores and non-food-dessert stores in non-white neighborhoods as the cultural violence of gentrification?
------------------

Several years ago, a group of race hustlers tried to shake down Trader Joes when the company announced it was going to build a store in a less affluent black neighborhood. TJ's said "Forget it," and decided to put the store somewhere else.

The locals were angry at what they claimed was a group of outsiders who'd come in to force their own form of "help" onto those who lived in the neighborhood.

107 In a farewell statement, PSSST's owners explained that their staff and artists had become targets for persistent harassment, both online and in person, and that the ongoing controversy had made fundraising impossible. The gallery was a nonprofit that sought to be "an open and dialogue-rich incubator in which artists would be relieved from the common pressures associated with the economies of art production and thereby create new models of sustainability and exchange," yet that wasn't to be. BHAAAD's own statement argued that such a project was really about "channeling philanthropy into destroying neighborhoods" and made a solemn vow: "We will not stop fighting until all galleries leave."

So no art galleries are allowed in brown or black neighborhoods? Yeah, that's totally not racist at all.

When they took his picture, he faced the wrong way and they had to yell at him at the top of their lungs and he still didn't turn around. His sight and hearing were terrible.

When he was 90 they gave him a restricted license, we told him that they wouldn't give him a license, and hid all the keys.

No, it's just race war. Gentrification causes property values to go up, which causes the locals to move and usually get replaced by whites with more money (who now want to live in the previously lousy neighborhood). So the community goes from minority to white. The "minority representatives" now have one less geographical area that they can claim to represent, meaning that they now have less power and influence.

183 Thank you, Captain.

At the beginning of our semesters we must review various emergency situations, like fire, weather events, or active shooter situations.

One of my students (possibly a veteran) said that if there is an active shooter, one scenario would be that an armed person might want to try to engage the bad guy.

So I said, yes, and I am okay with sane people in my classroom carrying because if there's a bad guy trying with a gun I hope there will be a good guy with a gun.

Well, another student indicated that he might be carrying and seemed to think he was pretty hot stuff and informed me that the Castle Doctrine says you can shoot someone who is breaking into your car even if you are across the street - that you can use deadly force to protect your property.

I said that did not sound correct. (This is the type of guy who strikes me as a braggadocio.)

California law might allow illegals to vote. But Federal law does not. States have typically had a great deal of leeway in determining exactly how the voting is conducted in their state.

Posted by: junior at January 23, 2018 10:08 PM (nWA7B)


Not sure the Federal government has the power to do that, though it is a moot point since California's Constitution states that "A United States citizen 18 years of age and resident in this State may vote."

This is one of those discussions where I just do not understand people.

So you are living in a neighborhood. Businesses move in and your property values go up. Now, this may increase your taxes, but your personal wealth has also gone up. If you sell, you will get more money for your property than you did before. I guess I can see if you have an apartment where this happens and rent goes through the roof.

On the other hand, I can understand people not wanting their neighborhood to change. People in general HATE change.

There is the rub with any test in medicine. Sensitivity and specificity. Sensitive enough to detect what you are trying to detect (Low levels give a positive result) and specific enough that a positive test means you have detected the thing you intended (Not a false positive).

Barring something along the lines of my comment @63, the answer is almost certainly yes.

Hmm...

If a city or county decided it wanted to enforce some sort of ID or citizenship check on anyone wanting to vote, and assuming that the judge assigned to hear the case was actually open-minded and hadn't made up his or her mind before the trial started, what would be the chances that the courts would allow it?

(because there's no way in Hell that California would allow, say, one of the inland communities to do something like that)

I was reading an article on it. The Dems aren't making any headway with the Trump-is-Racist line--because for black Americans that's the ground pattern. They tend to think an American president IS racist. But they also think the news media is racist--so the barrage of the media has reached saturation already.

Then they start seeing more jobs and start talking to other black people who supported Trump, and they come up with their own conclusion.

They said they would have a small imprint, yet a couple of yrs later they wanted to expand. To a large building that wouldn't have fit into the residential character of the neighborhood.

We won that one as there was a sewer line under where they wanted to expand and it wasn't allowed.

I am not elderly yet, but I do know that I am not comfortable anymore driving if it is dark and rainy therefore I don't. One or the other is OK, but not both. I have always been one of those cautious drivers who would rather make a right turn and go down, turn around, than cross 3 lanes of traffic to make a left.

When the Trumps went to one of the southern states after the hurricane, there was a black lady being interviewed on tv news. She said that Trump was a lot nicer than she'd realized. People get their views from the biased media. One of the things that helped Trump get elected was that he did so many large rallies, where people got to see him for themselves, unfiltered by the media, and make up their own minds.

Trump did multiple rallies in Michigan while Hillary was hanging out with rich celebrities like Harvey Weinstein.

How you want to take it is up to you. If Trump were just the type of guy who was big on talk and light on actions, he would blend back in with all the politicians that are good with talk. But Trump delivers results.

Suggest that you have a conversation with the Campus P.D., vs. filing an Official Complaint.

Just so that they might keep a more watchful eye on this gent. I'd likely mention that they might want to interview the other instructors in his rotation of classes?

Really, if he's a squirrel, it'll tend to show as a pattern, noticed by more than a few, if not many.

If not... if he only acted teh weird this one time? Then at least you haven't sullied his record with an Official Complaint.

Hell, they've already tried to recruit Oprah, whose only qualifications are her media empire and being black. And then it will be a year or more of "Get whitey! I mean, I want to be everyone's president, unlike Literal Republican Hitler IX." The Congressional Black Caucus will wheel out their Civil Rights Era zombies to inveigh against Trump's planned revival of the peculiar institution, and brave journalists like Mark Tapper and true-blue conservatives like Bill Kristol will be only too happy to carry their water.

413 Regarding bacon fat being addictive: animal fat is an enormous source of all the things that keep people alive. The Corps of Discovery (aka the Lewis and Clark expedition) would put away huge amounts of meat per man, because the critters they hunted (deer, antelope, elk) were so lean. There simply was not enough fat content. Bagging a buffalo or a bear was a treat.

I believe that the visceral love of fatty meat is not an accident.

The TX CHL instructor who I support and recommend to folks, has been known to quietly send the Texas Department of Public Safety a "veto" with an applicant's otherwise passing scores in both the classroom and shooting tests.

I don't know if your State's CHL Instructor Protocol allows for such a veto, but it'd be a grand thing if it did.

By the same measure, an individual retail gun salesperson can absolutely refuse to sell a firearm to a customer, if that salesperson has reason to doubt the propriety of the prospective buyer's fitness to be sent out of the store with said firearm.

It might be arbitrary, it might be unfair.

477 Have not the slightest idea myself, but will note that yesterday (I think) Christian Adams, evil former DOJ guy who actually believes in the constitution and rule of law, tweeted that the story about illegals being automatically registered to vote in CA was "fake news".


I didn't even read beyond his headline.


On a related note, though, WTF with states like CA issuing licenses to illegals?


Can't the entire legal framework/court decisions used to make driver's licenses good nation-wide be used to invalidate licenses for illegals? It is not possible that the framework ever anticipated or endorsed states issuing licenses to people in violation of federal law simply through their presence.


It just seems that there is a LOT of lawfare potential against the lawless racist authoritarians, er, "progressives", that is not being used.

502 On comedians and violent audiences. Joe Pistone, the undercover FBI guy who infiltrated the Mafia (aka Donnie Brasco) was out with the wise guys one nightstand a Florida club.

The comedian made the sad mistake of trying to make the Goodfellas the butt of his jokes. One of them went up on stage and told the guy to shaddup. The comedian kept it up. Luckily for the comic, Pistone was the one sent to rectify the situation. The comic got thumped around pretty good but it would have been a lot worse if one of the real guys had been the messenger.

Pistone' s take: "If a wiseguy gives you an order, it ain't a comedy bit. It's for real."

I can't spark too satiric on the Cleveland Dance Laws. There were summer riots at Cleveland's summer hot spots every once in a while in the 50's to mid-60's, making front page news in other Ohio towns back when Cleveland was a leading city and its suburbs were quite snooty. Geneva on The Lake made a Lee Marvinesque photo spread in LIFE in '65 for its white college kid rock'n'roll dustup.

Her family tried a different approach that appealed to her generous and charitable nature, and had her pastor approach her to ask her to donate her car to the church. She happily gave up her car and quit driving, and felt good about it. She could proudly tell her friends that she donated her car instead of admiting that she shouldn't be driving.

561 Hillbilly King, I can't take credit for that art. It was done by Jason Heuser (with whom I am not personally acquainted in any way).

It is an awesome piece of art, and I'm glad you enjoy it! I just link it here because, hey, it's a great picture of our awesome President, and I feel like the artist deserves a little more exposure.

Incidentally, after Trump was elected, the Department of Defense was less than timely in getting the official presidential portrait out to our military bases, so a lot of bases used that ridiculously awesome painting instead.

It's about independence.

Suggestion:

IF they can manage any kind of Smart Phone, download 'em the LYFT app. (UBER has too many data breaches, and their Stasi business culture, withal.)

Then, take them on a day long series of LYFT adventures. To their Dr. appointment. To Wal Mart. To their usual routine.

Show them that for the most part, they can LYFT for less than their annual car insurance, annual registration, fuel and maintenance.

And yet, STILL go WHERE they want, and pretty much, WHEN.

With far greater safety, and zero liability.

It's not guaranteed to work. But, it's a chance worth the effort to try.

Never seen a Lidl. Aldi is a bit far but it's a blast to walk through when I'm in the area. It's a grocery store as stocked by a loose team of people who hijacked delivery trucks from other local stores 400 miles away in every direction. There will be a pallet of delicious 4 pound swiss cake rolls for $0.19 each and a week later it's like that brand never existed.

Didldidi is the best of them though.

The Perfect is the Enemy of the Good.


LYFT > uber


And at that point? It's a numbers game then.

A church organization could likely NOT muster the sheer number of active drivers to BE available in MANY areas so as to be RESPONSIVE to the highly randomized manner of "hails" from fares throughout a metropolitan area.

Especially on a 24/7 basis. Much less "surge" conditions.

LYFT, indeed, has the taint of SJW. But not militantly so, per UBER.

This, in addition to the RIGHT EFFIN NOW need to get Gramps outta the car, and we don't have the pipe-dream TIME to wait for a theoretical "church ride share" system to develop in the VERY IMMEDIATE future.

Pursue such if you will, and Godspeed to you in the doing.

It'll help the Gramps of a couple three years out, if you hurry.

For the Horde that needs to un-ass Gramps from the car NOW?

LYFT.

Other places do the same thing, but the Aldi Difference™ is that if you inquire about them, instead of saying "oh yeah... I don't know if we're getting any more in" people will stare at you blankly until you leave and when you get home and figure you'll look up the UPC on the internet to see if you can order them or something and you find that all the wrappers have turned to ash and wind and there isn't even a brand name to search for and when you drive back to Aldi to see wtf is up you find a cracked empty parking lot surrounding a foundation that burned out decades ago.

NOW, you're (almost) Cookin' with Gas, mate!

Given that the ride sharing app services already run about 40% less than regular taxis, asking 'em to take yet another 40% divot, just isn't in the cards.

The app drivers are a hair's breadth away from driving for cost as it is, and only the wisest can wrest a greater profit from their efforts, with very astute "availability" times, prime areas, etc.

The "morals clause" might have to clear more court hurdles than the discounts allow. Write THAT one, with extreme care.

But, the aggregated purchasing power of a city wide organization of churches who'd COMMIT to a heavier than general population percentage of churchgoers who'd ROUTINELY USE a LYFT service?

Golden.

THAT could give you some negotiation power.

Trying to develop a separate "Church Ride Share App"....would, I think, end in frustration and tears.

But mostly, bankruptcy.

It would make you cry, thinking of the great bars and restaurants and businesses we have blowed to hell, and replaced with same-same franchises, unless you had a heart of stone, which is our specialty here.

"No Dancing": Lost my local corner bar two summers ago. It was "modest," but did survive an era when a tavern was a bad thing to have around. They had the No Dancing sign up, to protect them from the tax inspectors of the late 40's. You could lose your liquor license, you know.

My late kid-brother uncle, a roly-poly charming jokester (who left me a "nice chunk of change" in his parlance), was, perfectly legally and approved, standing on the pool table in there one night, having been drinking a little, holding a golf club, wiggling all around in a parody of Frank Stranahan lining up a long shot, when somebody reached out with the blue end of a pool cue and goosed him.

He took the swing, connected with a pool ball, and launched it neatly through the glass-block window in the front of the place. Bartender dourly looks up from polishing glassware behind the counter, and gruffly intones, "Hey. No Dancin'."

608 HK, I don't want to say what county of Noth Calina I bought my first couple quarts of shine in, but it alarmed old Dad that I was planning to go to a couple of back-country dives and just ask around. So he made a phone call and 20 minutes later my shine was delivered to the driveway, by a deputy in a prowl car with the lights on.

610 Cap'n, I think you are missing a key point.


Most of the to-and-from-ing with the old folks is scheduled.

Old folks work according to schedules-doctor stuff, church, bridge club, ladies' lunch days.

Inefficiency is in idle resources. In this case, the drivers would know the schedule well in advance +/- 85%.

Posted by: Miklos, from Karl Marx U (really) at January 24, 2018 01:01 AM (zCyNd)




That's not a Ride Sharing App....that's a Shuttle Service.

There's downloadable scheduling software out there for that, I'm sure.

That said...

I think the concept of independence is the thing that elderly "need their keys taken" drivers have the most problem with, in the transition.

A Ride Sharing (LYFT) program is the MOST independence.

If the Shuttle Service then proves to suit their needs for regular transportation, fine.

But I'll win the bet in this: Getting the keys from them will be easier when demonstrating a "LYFT day with them, vs. trying to get them to arrange a pre-sent "scheduling system" of rides, per a Shuttle System program.

Even the elderly want, on occasion, to try a new restaurant or store, time to time.

I admit I didn't get a lot of it-- it's a Fellini film, in Italian with subtitles, and was made in 1953-- but I liked its theme, or moral, a lot.

613 Exile, it gets devastatingly boring and complicated almost immediately, as a topic, but budget resolutions are just the big general top-line numbers for the categories of govt. functions (050 = Defense, 150 = international affairs, etc.).


So appropriations (a different thing) for border infrastructure would not be affected by budget resolution, beyond the total number given to the function under which it fits (forget the code and title). Budget resolutions don't fund specific activities, appropriations bills do.


*And you can't filibuster budget resolutions, anyway.* They're one of the few types of legislation that come with their own statutory limit on debate (60 hours total, IIRC).


So Cryin' Chuck (Trump returned to this wonderful sobriquet tonight in der Trumpentwatter) would have been talking about appropriations bills?


Trump bears some of the blame for this situation. Once it was clear the Senate Dems would - contrary to all our history prior up to 2009, AFAIK - not permit the 12 individual approps bills to be considered and voted on (House passed them all), and Mitch would not change rules to circumvent this, Trump should have said he'd sign no CRs lasting longer than 10 days, and no more than 2, total.


CRs dramatically reduce the president's power, and provide cover for congresscritters, who for a decade now have hardly had any key or tough votes to make, whereas their predecessors lived and dies through such votes. The advent of omnibus CRs has dramatically reduced presidential power, and congressional accountability. Come on, Two Scoops, you must have *someone* on your staff with an ounce of strategic sense. Sky's the limit, take on this issue, you'll win, Dems and RINOs will lose, bigly.

This is a wonderful, and most gracious offering of hospitality. And I would accept with all humility, gratitude and appreciation.

But what I'd really like?

A master of the art, to visit me here in Galveston, and show me how to get the best out of my small, home kettle apparatus.

I'm unique, in that my only interest would be to make enough for +/- my annual consumption, to be barreled and aged for my own, personal use.

It is an art that I'd want to acquire for teh Burning Times, but to stay in practice as needed, so as to never run out, before then.

I haven't the slightest interest in selling so much as a single shot to the market.

Reloading ammo is a great thing. Reloading 1.75 ml. empty bourbon bottles is a GREAT thing.

Good luck. My broker buddy was trying to pitch me some units of a private placement for a company that proposes to build a plant to grow hydroponic weed on Indian land in British Columbia. My comment upon reading the prospectus, "My God! The sky. It's full of pie!"
Turns out I do already own some shares in it, owing to the fact that another company I bought stock in got RTO'd. The weed wranglers will have to go to $3.00 per share for me to recover my initial investment. I don't think I am going to buy any of the new issue. Too much hype.

625 Exile, I've committed myself to actually reading Glantz's "Colossus Reborn" about the eastern front - but only through "compromise". I read 100 pages of Glantz, then an entire separate book, then another 100 pages of Glantz.


Without this shameful concession I'd never finish Glantz. The topic, his approach, and his writing style make my comments here look zippy, carefree, and playful.


So far, A Kidnap in Crete (very good tale I didn't know about the nabbing of a German general by SOE/partisans), and now starting Death of the Wehrmacht (Citino) - which obviously is directly related to Glantz's topic.

Posted by: Stringer Davis at January 24, 2018 02:12 AM (H5rtT)


According to Jerry Pournelle, Le Guin was the single person most responsible for turning SFWA into the SJW shithole it is today. Way back in the beginning it was just a way for science fiction writers to deal collectively with publishers and also provide a pool for health and life insurance.

Le Guin, who was one of the bigger authors, threatened to quit if fantasy writers weren't included, so the then-board reluctantly made the change. There are about 10 fantasy writers for every hard sci-fi writer. The fantasy writers changed the rules such that you didn't need to have published novels to join - all you needed was published short stories.

Over time the leadership of the organization was taken over by part time writers with almost no output, and these people started to use the organization to push their (always leftist) political causes.

I was coming home one foggy night. I passed a large party of bow-armed deer hunters assembling on the right of the road on CoE land. Just a little way up the road, in the fog, I stopped to let 6 deer, led by a large doe, heading north to safety. Just out of sight of the hunters heading south.

It was a natural response to tight money and low profits. In principle it works great. I used to have a tractor trailer deliver an entire truckload of raw materials in the morning and have another tractor trailer take away finished goods at the end of the day.

Why were there ever outages of an item? The usual suspects that software can't detect like waste, damage, theft, wrong item delivered, etc. Which always led to the ankle-biters saying, "How come your computer didn't know that, smart guy?"

Then I have to drop keys and permits off at the moving company so we can get the ball rolling on moving the double wide trailer to its new location.

Oh, I know that. They also know the regs and when the season is.

I may have exaggerated how bad my hunting was, but they all know what's going on.

The hunting I had some success with was ducks. I would kayak up through salt marshes and the headwaters of a freshwater river with a shotgun across my lap ready to pick it up as I sneaked around a bend. As sneaky as I was, the ducks would always flee the second I came around the bend. I got a good bunch of them and they tasted good, but most of them got away.

Then I'd go back to a dock near a road where you're not allowed to murder them and they'd just swim around making taunting noises.

They all know the rules.

In theory -- we'll take a grocery store for example -- every time someone purchases an item the inventory system should deduct one from count on hand and know quantity on hand which trips a flag when that number goes below some preset level. There should be no reason for anyone to walk around with a hand held scanner. But they all do. Because grocery stores are rampant with shop lifters.

There's theory, and there's reality.

769 759 Actually NYS has a national forest. Never knew that until seeing signs about it along the road. Somewhere in the southern tier. Good place to hid if I was a deer, during hunting season.

Allegheny National Forest? Thats in PA. Not sure if it crosses state lines into NY though. Its definitely on the border.

I was responsible for 180 million pounds of raw materials each year. If what get's entered into the computer at any one of the points of manufacturing is wrong, I was fooked, and it was MY fault and it was ME that had to look into it.

Not the chucklehead on the line

776 Everytime I see skimpy women's clothing advertised on ace.nu.mu, I click.

Now the HQ reliably looks like a soft porn site.



I do that and I was getting reliably good lingerie and cameltoe ads for a while. Those were the good old days.

I mentioned the founder of the Orvis chain in a private e-mail yesterday and now I have all Orvis ads again.

Thanks, Bob from NSA.

780 The Allegheny in NYS is a state park that I believe becomes the Allegheny Nat'l Forest at the PA state line. The NYS part is still pretty big though. We all used to go hunting down there when I was a kid.

And...mornin'!

I love to fvck with 'em. Just throw in some search to make it appear like a teenager is at the computer. Birth control, condoms, diapers, Katy Perry, etc. Keeps the AARP stuff pushed down.

One time I mentioned something about a resort I had been to in Jamaica here at AoS without naming it. The next day an ad popped up for that exact resort.

Yeah, I swear sometimes that happens after I've said something on the phone.

It doesn't entirely creep me out because I have no sense of privacy and I don't think anyone is really paying attention to me, it's just bots doing bot stuff.

My favorite example is from a few years ago when I did some mad internet dating after a bad breakup. There was a Polish girl. I said "this is weird, I know where you live, I know where you work, we've had sex, but I don't know your last name". She said "let's keep it that way".

Fine. Whatever. A few months later Facebook said "do you want to be friends with Elizabeth HerRealLastName?"
