Quotes of The Day

Quote I

Have you been sipping on so much Democrat Dick you've become spunk-drunk? Ace

Please do not comment on old threads. Thank you. If you have to ask why you can't afford it.


Quote II

Dong-sung blue, everybody knows one, as Neil Diamond so sagely observed. But, in the midst of all this viciousness, how pleasing to see Britain's victory in the women's curling, the stiff upper lip of your stiff upper skip as she wielded her shedding brush doing credit to all. Instead of the usual walk-outs, internal inquiries, lawsuits and FBI investigations, the Ayrshire ladies' triumph was universally greeted by their fellow athletes with a stunned "Britain's in the Winter Olympics? Since when?Mark Steyn

Quote III

Much unhappiness has come into the world because of bewilderment and things left unsaid. Fyodor Dostoevsky

*****

Asexuality is real. So is mental illness. Your introduction to the newest & latest sexual proclivity.

Asexuality is a “sexual orientation characterized by a persistent lack of sexual attraction toward any gender,” according to the website What is Asexuality? Asexual people neither “experience sexual attraction” nor can they choose to; they are simply born without sexual desires. Conversely, people who do experience sexuality are referred to as either sexual or allosexual people, AVENWiki reports.

The ONT hopes that you aren't squeamish at the moment. Too many singles are too damn lazy to change the bed.

This ought to keep you up at night.

The average person waits more than three weeks (24 days, to be exact) to change his or her sheets, according to a recent MattressAdvisor survey of 1,000 Americans. Some single men were particularly skeevy, spending 45 days (that’s six and a half weeks) sleeping in filth before stripping the bed – and after having sex, these cruddy studs waited another 11 days before taking their used sheets off of the bed.

Daredevil flyer meets his maker.


When you hear Disneyland, what image pops to mind? Mickey & Minnie Mouse? Walt Disney himself? Gangs and protection rackets?

"It's all about the shared love for Disney," said Mark Drop, Jr., 39, who founded a club called Flynn's Riders, after a character in the Walt Disney animated film "Tangled."

But a lawsuit filed in Orange County Superior Court has revealed a dark undercurrent to the pastime. The head of one club has accused another of using gangster-like tactics to try to collect "protection" money for a charity fundraiser at the park.

The lawsuit reads like mob movie set in a theme park. The plot revolves around the Main Street Fire Station 55 Social Club, whose leaders claim they have been bullied and terrorized by the head of the White Rabbits Social Club.

*****


The next time you find yourself in court being cross-examined by a dwarf, Don't break out in song and laughing.

So when Russian-German Wadim Golanev, 25, cracked up in hysterics at the 'dwarf lady' in court during a case about theft, she was decidedly unimpressed.

Golanev was unable to answer her questions due to his hysterical laughter, pointing at her and singing 'Hi Ho, Hi Ho!' from Snow White And The Seven Dwarves.

No-one else joined in. And before he left the witness box he was handed a hastily scrawled summons accusing him of 'obscene insults' and ordered to appear before a judge next month.

Any AtC jokes are at your own peril.

*****


Triplets separated at birth, the sinister reasoning.

Soon after their meeting each other, Robert and Eddy realized they were brothers separated at birth, both born July 12, 1961, in Long Island, and then adopted by different families. Their story made the local news, which brought about another twist. Shortly after the story came out, David Kellman of Queens made contact with the twins. He also looked, talked, and acted exactly like the two brothers. The long lost twins were in fact long lost triplets.

The three boys had a great deal in common, from their taste in food to the brand of cigarettes they smoked. They all clicked instantly.

*****

Everything you wanted to know about intersectional feminism.Intersectional Feminism: Swedish style.

Of course, there are various types of feminism. Sweden's preferred type is not about universal sisterhood and the spreading of sexual equality around the globe. No, it is "intersectional" feminism. What is "intersectional" feminism? It is a species of feminism that, in accordance with the relatively new academic concept of "intersectionality," accepts a hierarchy whereby other "victim groups" -- such as "people of color" and Muslims -- are higher up on the grievance ladder than women, and whereby women who belong to those other groups enjoy an even more exalted status as victims than white female Christians or Jews.

*****


Our friend and resident chef CBD is pushing heart disease causing agents. Be careful the next time you douse a piece of pork or chicken in mustard.

Given that just about everything one can possibly eat seems to be bad for you, I'm not sure if Dr. Jackson Blair was a crackpot or ahead of his time with his theory that mustard is the secret cause of heart disease.

But for Blair, mustard was just the tip of the iceberg. It was "part of a wider theory that condiments—pepper, ginger, mustard and mayonnaise, which contains mustard—cause hypertension."

The ONT Musical Interlude



February 11, 2009, Ronettes singer Estelle Bennett died at her home in Englewood, N.J. She was 67. The 60's girl group best known for their work with producer Phil Spector had the 1963 hit 'Be My Baby' which epitomized the famed "wall of sound" technique. via thisdayinmusic.com

February 11, 2012, Whitney Houston was found dead in suite 434 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, submerged in the bathtub. Beverly Hills paramedics arrived at approximately 3:30 p.m. and found the singer unresponsive and performed CPR. Houston was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m. Local police said there were "no obvious signs of criminal intent." It was later ruled by the coroner to have been an "accidental drowning" via thisdayinmusic.com

12 Jewells: the cat destroyed dinner.
Then probably demanded something to eat itself.

I can relate. I've waited too late to eat, put something in the oven or on the stove, and then spilled it. Frustrating. Once did it with a bacon pizza I was dying to try.

34 Repeated as AOSHQ public service (and thanks for the gub* thread, MisHum!):


I watch Olympics only on the streaming feeds, on computer.


Just the event you want to see. No idiotic American on-air personalities (usually furriners doing the things I like such as x-c skiing, ski jumping, hockey). Very few commercials.


And - it's funny (I'll whisper so NBC doesn't find out) - there's some weird glitch on the commercials, so the video's normal but the audio is half speed, so it sounds like Halloween III: The Mumbling. I just click over to AOSHQ or another open window during commercials anyway.


So - don't watch the idiot box, watch the computer. Much more control.

36 In the big push to build hype for the upcoming Solo: an excuse for Disney to take your money, Disney has decided the things everyone needs to know are
1. George Lucas was on set and made one comment that may have led to a scene reshot.
2. Harrison Ford personally coached the Han Solo cosplayer on how to be Han Solo in the movie titled Han Solo, so you should believe he's really Han Solo.
3 It doesn't need to fit any particular genre, but you should know Solo is a Love Story between Han and Chewbacca.

Wait, what?

38 A few years ago some member of the GOPe, before he went full GOPe (I think it was the baseball dweeb) wrote an article about how lefties WANTED to be part of victim groups.

All the lefties at work were clucking about it. He thinks we want to be poor wimmens! Or poor gayz! OH NO!!!!

And now well...lefties handle being in victim groups like Michael Moore treats lard sandwiches.

But that is how the left works. From "oh you crazy...no one wants that!" to in a few short years "if you don't believe that you are a NAZI."

So they'd have to add the fore-grip to make it like the original civilian model - unless there was a special/early/limited version of the Thompson with both the plain wood grip (as seen in the photo) AND a fore-grip?


And for bonus Homburg, which sub-machine gun did the Thompson beat out for the military orders early in WWII?

Salad dressing is deadly because most people prefer tons of dressing especially in entree sized salads. Burgers? Not so much. Condiment portions aren't particularly significant.

Our black lab caught a flying squirrel by sliding under the oven after I pulled the storage drawer out and waiting. They were living in the attic. Patience is a virtue. Speed helps, too I suspect!

She carried it around the backyard triumphantly before gently setting it on the ground. Then our beagle snatched it up and shook the hell out of it and commenced dining. The lab was as grossed out as we were.

February 11, 2012, Whitney Houston was found dead in suite 434 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, submerged in the bathtub. Beverly Hills paramedics arrived at approximately 3:30 p.m. and found the singer unresponsive and performed CPR. Houston was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m. Local police said there were "no obvious signs of criminal intent." It was later ruled by the coroner to have been an "accidental drowning"

If it wasn't that it would have been something else. When I heard she was dead I was surprised, as i assumed she had already died.

196 @42: "My cat caught a bat today. How fast does a cat have to be to catch a bat?"

My cats have caught bats well into old age. Most bats aren't particularly clever and wear themselves out flying in circles after they get stuck inside. Easy prey if they don't find a high perch atop windows frames or behind curtains.

I found a dead bat on my chest one morning after falling asleep on my couch. I figured it was tribute from my cat. The dead ammonia smell woke me up rather unpleasantly.

Holy hell do those critters decay fast.

The LA Coroners have to be the worst. When Whitney was found dead, I believe they also found cocaine on the bathroom counter, cocaine on the hamper, cocaine on the bidet, cocaine on the toilet, cocaine stuck to the mirror, cocaine in her bathwater, and cocaine at the side of the tub.

But when it came time to announce a cause of death, LA Coroners went "we have no idea. We think it might have been Bigfoot..." :-P

251 Regarding the airplane crash today. I t happened right after takeoff.

Two weeks ago I took off on an American Airline flight to D.C. Just before we went wheels up at top runway speed, the pilot stopped the plane suddenly and aborted the takeoff.

Scared the hell out of me. I thought maybe another plane was about to hit us.

Turned out we blew an oil pump and lost all oil pressure in one of the engines.

It sucked to miss the flight and ruin the workday, but I am grateful that it didn't happen at 1,000 feet or 10,000 feet.

I say, let them swim!

274 I'm impressed with Johnny Weir's commentary. The first time I saw him doing commentary (last Olympics?) he was terrible - really snarky - but his comments this time are very good and help me understand the technical side of skating, and his comments about the skaters are positive and respectful. Much as I love Scotty Hamilton, he would get so excited that his commentary became intrusive and annoying. Credit where it's due - Johnny Weir is doing a professional job.

The guy literally came all the way back from last, to win (by a decent margin). And it was 1-2-3 Norway - not unusual in nordic ski events. That tiny country's continued dominance of that sport is sort of remarkable.


X-c skiing is the most aerobic athletic activity - more than swimming. That's why it's one of the only Olympic events with an altitude limitation. And it's the beauty of the biathlon. Your heart rate is 170+ coming off the trail, and now you have to ...... shoot.

364 AOP, still on my list of unchecked items is to x-c ski at Canmore. I assume it's still got a good trail network.


Only Olympic x-c trails I've done were Lake Placid. But I think I like those better than most conventional resorts. Too many very difficult trails, with lots of climbing/descending. Which makes no sense. X-c is best with rolling hills, some ups/downs, but not steep climbs. Sort of defeats the purpose. Olympic layouts have hills, but not the steep stuff that takes up 30% of all my favorite x-c networks.

I am not a skier. Most of Canmore is in a broad, flat valley, so unless they purposely went to the mountains, the XC trails should not be exceedingly hilly.
The town of Edson, Alberta, which is about halfway between Edmonton and Jasper, has a XC facility not too far NW of the town. The trails for the most part follow old seismic lines, and the dog and I walked some of them in the summers when I worked wells around there. Rolling, hilly country, but really steep places are rare.

Much food and drinkery followed.
All in all, it was a wonderful event.

There's no reason to take at face value any rumor about Melania that the MSM comes up with, of course. But it is possible that such customs might be popular among other Catholic Balkan groups and that she had a similar ceremony.

I'm a little curious to see the show now. I think she does a fine job on the radio, lets the guests speak without losing control of the interview. Never had an issue with her voice or delivery, but then, Levin is currently at the top of my list and he sounds like Donald Duck sodomizing Big Bird.

So maybe she's just lousy at the TV show format. I'm not curious enough to go nuts and do something crazy like watch TV though.

I knew them best from their song "Ruckzuck" being used in the first season of "Newton's Apple".

Their early stuff was different from their later day work, however.

The Breman Radio bootlegs were from a brief time that one of the two main contributors to Kraftwerk wasn't in the band. Their early stuff is basically well done and produced "krautrock". Their stuff after that was more computer and electronic oriented.

Kraftwerk's official "Ruckzuck":

The version, for comparison, from the Bremen bootlegs:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABOMrTgPNZA

Compare with a more recent full show:

458 Arrrgggghhhh! I just don't understand all the hate on bowling. Bowling really is a sport. What you cannot see is the oil pattern on the lane. They are trying to change that by adding blue dye to the oil so that you can get an idea of the pattern, but it doesn't tell the whole story. How much oil is on the lane dictates how you have to play the pattern.
I'm a good bowler. I've averaged over 200 for over ten years. That is on a house pattern. A house pattern has a crown that when you find the crown, you can ride it to the pocket and strike. A pro pattern is flat with no crown. I've bowled on a pro pattern and watched my average go from 212 to 176. A drop of almost 40 pins per game. The pros on tour now are some of the best athletes out there. They have to be able to consistently hit their mark on the lane, with the same speed, and the same axis rotation. If they don't, they don't strike. And they have to make their spares. Walter Ray Williams Jr, one of the best in the business, was almost 100% on shooting a ten pin spare. I'm at about 90% and I have a lot of people comment that I'm pretty good at it.
I love to bowl. It's good exercise. For every three games I'm walking a mile plus throwing a 15 lb ball every shot. I get to hang out with my friends. We do leagues, we do tournaments, and we get together to practice. It's a lot of fun.
The guy that won the Tournament of Champions today, he was in Denver last year and won that Regional Tournament. Nice guy and we talked a lot. After the tournament he gave me a high end Storm ball. I had to have it plugged and redrilled to fit my hand, but I love the ball. I shot a 723 series for three games with it. That means I averaged a 241 per game set.
I blame BSG for all the bowling hate, but damn guys, bowling is a sport, more so than some of the Olympic sports like badmitten, curling, ping pong, and some others. The biggest thing on the lanes is what you cannot see, and that is the oil pattern. There are some truly elite bowlers out there. There are women out there that could beat me like a rented mule. They are elite athletes.
So please, as a favor to me, don't do the BSG thing and denigrate bowlers. It really annoys the heck out of me.
Sorry for the rant.

My two trophies from High School (Norfolk/VA Beach area-wide) are chess (2nd place, beating the first place guy to get second) and bowling (1st place). Considering all the practice I put in on Sunday to improve my bowling in my high school kids' league on Saturday morning, bowling is a sport. Me and a teammate used to go to the Navy base's 8-laner on Sunday and spend a quarter a game to practice; if nobody was there, we'd get two side-by-side lanes to really practice. We'd roll six lines or more, taking a few hours.

When I first moved out to Montana I lived about 3/4 of a mile from a Bowling alley that only my friends and I used.

We had the full run of the place as the owner only cared about the Bar for the most part. He'd let us fire up our own lanes, get our own shoes, pay whatever we felt like, too.

Got spoiled those few years. Then they 'had a fire'. Sad night the night the lanes burned down.

Posted by: X-ray at February 12, 2018 01:47 AM (hEe9g)

495 Don't read the ONT or the AOSHQ as much as others, but I don't pick up an anti-bowling vibe here. Just one comment in this here ONT, and it was pretty mild. Not much of a sports guy, but I played soccer in my yoot. Soccer gets ripped here on occasion, and I find it amusing. The only "sport" I (rarely) participate in nowadays is fly fishing, and I welcome any and all denigrations of this fine pastime.

People are ridiculous. There's something to ridicule in just about everything we do. If some moron picks your sport to poke fun at, it's doing no harm to you nor your sport. Just keep at it and have fun; don't listen to what others think (or do listen, and laugh along with them).

I hear ya, Old Blue. I invested my time, energy, research & funding in golf for many years. Played to a +3 in my younger years, holding that for about three seasons. My last handicap was +8 about 10 years ago when I had to stop playing for some time. Haven't reestablished it since then.

Were you to have unlimited time to practice do you think you could make the pro bowling tour?

Posted by: --- .-. /-. --- - at February 12, 2018 01:44 AM (MTjB1)

Maybe ten years ago. I'm 65 now and getting arthritis in my bowling hand. Even then, maybe not the pro tour, but the senior pro tour. And I would also have to find a house that would put out the pro oil patterns for me to practice on. The problem then becomes that some of the best bowlers on the planet all started turning 50 and were eligible to bowl the senior tournaments. Walter Ray, Pete Weber, Norm Duke. They are dominating right now in my age group.
Let me put it this way. I bowled the Rocky Mountain Senior Tour, with a couple of Pro bowlers in the tournament, about 60 bowlers in the field. For the six game qualifying block, I averaged 227. I did not make the cut to the top sixteen.

507 well, I have not read bsg's rant against bowling, however, in general defense of rants, they are fun. making an impassioned rant against something in depth in and of itself is fun and something you are rarely allowed to do in polite company or anywhere else. having an opinion and stating it forcefully is fun and frequently generates a similarly impassioned opposing response. so long as it is not personal arguing is fun!

I would gladly go of on a rant to knock the shit out of bowling just because it is fun, even though I have nothing against bowling. hell everything is better than hockey.

so you are pretty good. nice. peculiar quirk in my family is that when the women hit 60 or so they start bowling with their friends. has happened lots . kind of funny since it is not apparent where it comes from. very funny for my mom who took bowling for a credit in college back in the dark ages but never bowled between college and 60. she golfed, did other things but one day she and her golf friends started bowling weekly. she and they love it and never miss their weekly outing.

518 Bowling -- I like the idea of the blue dye in the oil. That would have been helpful, back when I bowled.

I had to give it up, as I was wrecking my thumb. I was a cranker, and I had a tendon to the thumb that got real good at popping out of place.

On one of our mixed leagues, we had a female pro as a member. She carried around a 210 league average. Very consistent. Not too hard on the eyes, either.

I'm not surprised. Mrs Old Blue is the president of a women's bowling club. They just bowled the City Women's Tournament this last weekend. The oldest participant is 92, the youngest about 25. Her club took about 32 women to the tournament. It really is a social thing. The weather in Denver Saturday was nasty, but only two women didn't show up. They showed up today. It was great. I always go to keep score and schlep when the women want something, plus I get hugs from a lot of really good people. For the amateur bowlers, it is really a good social gathering. After we got done today, a bunch of us went out to dinner and had a great time. It's a time that you can get together with friends, have fun, bowl, eat, drink, swat flies, tell lies, pass gas, and have a good time.

well, it is from a question my college roommate and I asked each other after getting wrecked. Someone would wake up and state something like

Me: "I was so wrecked last night I do note even remember getting in."

Roommate:"Well, do yo remember the gorilla with the bowling pin"?

Me: "No."

Roommate: "Good, then you slept well."


the implication was that someone may have been sodomized by a gorilla with a bowling pin. between us, it was more likely a guy in a gorilla suit with a bowling pin.

Anyone ever try duckpin bowling? It's a Southern thing.

Small, hand-held ball with no holes. Smaller pins than ten-pin, with the added bonus of being able to chop the 1-5 pins without knocking any other pin over. Three rolls, I believe like candle-pin, with no sweeping the lane between throws, also like candle-pin, so you use deadwood to knock down other pins on throws 2 and 3. Great for kids, though.

Is Judith Miller a dumbass leftist or really retarded? Maybe both?

She was on FNC complaining Trump didn't treat the Dems memo like the Reps memo. She complained the Rep memo was dissed by intelligence and FBI and shouldn't be released but was. It was released in it's entirety and NO methods and sources were revealed

But when the Dems memo was set to be released the intelligence and FBI said parts about methods and sources shouldn't be released because of such concerns she says Trump is covering up stuff.

She's a lair or stupid, maybe both.

569 Mornin' Horde! Got about 6.5-7 hours sleep, so being up early ain't nothin' to me this morning.

How's this day finding folks?

570 I haven't watched any of the Olympics. Maybe when the hockey starts. Maybe. Anyway, the NK chick who was sitting near VP Pence during the opening ceremonies has cause our MSM hearts to go all a flutter. Um, probably a rhetorical question but do these vaunted, totally not biased, journalists not realize how f'ing awful they look by, once again, siding with our enemies so publicly.

Yea I know, rhetorical.

Madness.

571 554 wasn't planning on seeing "Black Panther", any more than i would any other over hyped POS Hollyweird puts out, but now that i'm told i HAVE to both see it and like it, or i'm raycsss?

FTS!

I'm a racist then because I'm not going to see it. Also was a gay h8r because I refused to see Brokeback Mountain.

572 564 Curling is an olympic sport the way darts and race car driving are olympic sports. Ie. it's not a sport, it's an activity. A sport should involve some level of physical exertion.
Posted by: Steve and Cold Bear



Those guys getting out of race cars are physically exerted. The Dakar Rally, 24 Hours of LeMans, Bristol, F1, etc. are all demanding and physically exhaustive for the driver.

576 Good morning VIA.

I am marveling at the stupidly of the 2000 US soldiers vs 60,000 zombies simulation.

No formed lines. No formation tactics. No fire discipline.

580 Not watching the Olympics but from what I read the media is loving the NORKs. So when given a choice of 60 year regime of murder and torture or Mike Pence and US who do you think the media picks???

There is a good video on reason that claims the same thing. Nothing is really taught in public education that gets you a jobs or creates new jobs.

If you need advice, the Horde can deliver.

595 583 They have actually created a new race of Koreans. About 30 to 40 lbs lighter and the men are almost 4" shorter. Most defectors have almost some kind of brain damage from long term starvation. Progressives do love a nice dictatorial state.

597 VIA, last comment before I have to go, the US soldiers need 30 rounds per person to get all the zombies. They should have enough ammo.

But firing from inside the square is a big Blue on Blue no-no. Stupid simulation.

Wasted, hell. Proof that they knew exactly what they were after and got it right on the money. It an't education. Agit-Prop and Indoctrination is spot-on.
