Saturday Overnight Open Thread (8/25/1

The Saturday Night Joke


Are you a Democrat, a Republican or a Southerner?

The answer can be found by posing the following question:

You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children.

Suddenly, a terrorist with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams "Allah ho akhbar!", raises the knife, and charges at you...

You are carrying a Kimber 1911 .45 ACP, and you are an expert shot.
You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family.
What do you do?

THINK CAREFULLY AND
THEN SCROLL DOWN:


Democrat's Answer:

Well, that's not enough information to answer the question!

What is a Kimber 1911.45 ACP?

Does the man look poor or oppressed?

Is he really a terrorist? Am I guilty of profiling?

Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?

Could we run away?

What does my wife think?

What about the kids?

Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?

What does the law say about this situation?

Does the pistol have appropriate safety built into it?

Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children?

Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me?

Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me?

If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?

Should I call 9-1-1?

Why is this street so deserted?

We need to raise taxes, have paint & weed day.

Can we make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior.

I need to debate this with some friends for a few days and try to come to a consensus.

This is all so confusing!

............ .......... ........ ..... ......... ....... ........ ........ .

Republican's Answer:

BANG!


............ ....... ...... ........ ......... ........ .......... ....

Southerner's Answer:

BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!
BANG ! BANG! BANG! BANG!
Click..... (Sounds of reloading)

BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!BANG!BANG!
Click

Daughter: 'Nice grouping, Daddy!'
'Were those the Winchester Silver Tips or Hollow Points?!

Son: 'Can I shoot the next one?!'

Wife: You are not taking that to the Taxidermist!

I have nothing positive to say about the man.

Hopefully his passing will result in something productive and useful happening.

But being this is the GOP we are talking about, I find that proposition tenuous at best.

21 Wow, I shouldn't be surprised, as I've long written off the country in many respects, but the reactions to McCain's passing by some who might have been expected to know better is jaw-dropping.


It's as if they were quite unfamiliar with McCain's actual record in elected office. Ridiculous, and indefensible.

51 Go to any forum and read 80% of libs talking up McCain like he is some Incredible Hero of Integrity.

Hhilarious when you see in 4k Mega Resolution what fucking sheep they are. Ten years ago he was the hellspawn of corporate warmongering greed and the consummate problem with the Repukkkelican Party. Now he is a vanquished legend who they wouldn't have minded at all to have as president because he is a proud defender of all that is good with the US of A.

56 I will say
sympathies to McCain's family
may God rest his soul
and maybe Biden can again jump start his 2020 campaign by going on the View again and telling Meggie Mac... I dunno, how McCain would have been an OK president if Obama hadn't won, something like that.
but I suspect that a lot of the usual suspects will eventually tell us that McCain would have wanted Trump to lose the nomination to !Jeb, what with Jeb standing for Real Conservative Republican Principles, like responsible tax increases and responsible increases in gov't regulations and giving a really nice concession speech on Erection Night.

90 Lots of the stuff about McCain has been prerecorded and ready to go for weeks if not longer. It'll all be pleasantries and making nice for the proles. In private? Not so much. The networks will make an effort to not dance on his grave. There may be some resulting further brain damage caused by that. We can hope.
I voted for Palin, I thought McCain was a doofus. He threw the election and caused much harm. I'll not express anything but prayers for those who will honestly mourn his passing. Judgement, is in the hands of G-d and not in mine.

103 Gene Simmons is a guy who really knows what he wants and almost always gets it. He's not unlike Donald Trump in that respect.

That said, I loathe Gene Simmons. Something about him just pisses me off. His voice. Hi mannerisms. His dumb hair.

Paul Stanley is a little less heinous. It's fun to joke about his lispy voice and spastic stage presence (knocking over mic stands and whatnot)

Peter Criss is someone I have absolutely no opinion of, except he was too much of a front hole to use double kicks.

I love Ace. Ace Frehley is the true talent from that band. he is a true musician, but the band dragged him down with their insane popularity and crazy schedule. He had no time to practice. He hated it. Love his latest album.

Oh yes. His hospital bed was set up in the long room of his house, a living room dining room type thing. About two weeks before he quit talking and quit eating he as talking to his wife and kept looking past her and furtively waving. When his wife asked who he was waving to, he said 'Those people.' She asked what people. And he said all those people sitting over there, meaning at the far end of the room where the dining table was. He said, 'They keep looking over here and waving at me to come over'.

195 Oh yes. His hospital bed was set up in the long room of his house, a living room dining room type thing. About two weeks before he quit talking and quit eating he as talking to his wife and kept looking past her and furtively waving. When his wife asked who he was waving to, he said 'Those people.' She asked what people. And he said all those people sitting over there, meaning at the far end of the room where the dining table was. He said, 'They keep looking over here and waving at me to come over'.

The morning he died he was supposed to be napping in his room when he came into the kitchen where his wife was to get a drink of water and he was bitching about all those people not letting him sleep. His wife was puzzled and he explained that a bunch of people were having a party in his room drinking and playing music and they wouldn't leave him alone. My friends mother finally convinced to go back and try to sleep and he grumblingly complied and, of course, when she check on him a hour later he had passed.

271 Last night I brought up the trouble I was having with my car (a 2001 Ford Mustang) - specifically the ac clutch pulley. Today, armed with a bit of information provided by some of you last night, I took a closer look (it also helped that the engine was cool, and therefore touchable...).

First of all, unlike what I thought yesterday, the pulley is actually spinning properly. I apparently wasn't running the a/c. And it only spins when the a/c is running. Turning it on caused the assembly to spin properly.

I think I located the source of the noise. The front of the assembly looks more or less like the piece on the right in the link here (I think this is actually from a Eurostar, but it's close enough) -

http://images.wrenchead.com/Smartpages/partinfo_resize/OET/22-10521.jpg

Despite how it looks in the picture, the piece on the right is composed of multiple plates. The front plate is the triangle with the large circular piece at each corner. On my car, two of those circular pieces are actually uncovered. In each of those two circular pieces, there's a non-turnable bolt. This bolt is connected to the round plate that's next in the line-up (referred to as the "middle plate" going forward). You can't see it in the picture, but each of the bolts extends through a slot that's basically slightly narrower than the head of the bolt. This holds the front plate up against the middle plate. But the slots extend to each side, meaning that the bolts can move within their respective assemblies. In short, the middle plate isn't firmly locked against the front plate, but instead can move a short distance to each side.

So basically, the middle plate is loose, and attempting to slide around. Since the bolts are attached to the middle plate, the movement is visible when the plates aren't spinning (i.e. when the a/c is off). I tested it myself with the engine shut off by carefully moving the middle plate. It moved around freely within the limits imposed by the bolts.

The noises that I've been hearing have evidently been the middle plate rattling around as the engine is in operation.

I also noticed she had a great body but it wasn't until I came up to the front with my stuff and was standing there that I got an eyeful. She had an AMAZING body. Tight, hot, leggings that looked like they were painted on. I'm like wow she must have great genes and works out for hours until she turned to leave and she probably wasn't older than 20.

Short answer: Everyone younger than we are dumb and stupid.

Longer answer: No idea. long, tedious essays could be written about the desire for young women to eschew the burden of living with their natural hair color. To transcend genetics, to be true individuals. And so forth.

My own bride's hair color is entirely natural, and other women would kill puppies to get close to what God blessed her with. Aside from some all-natural lemon-based spritzer highlighters for summer, she has never colored her hair.


But, then, she is of Ze Master Race.

When I got to the neighbor's, there was a mama bear asleep there in the driveway, and three cubs gamboling about in the woods between the houses. I called the neighbor and let her know that she needed to exercise caution, and went back to clearing the mouse nest out of the engine's cooling shroud.

323 McCain is dead and for all his service, let's not forget:
-he screwed all taxpayers by not voting with the rest of the Republicans to repeal Obamacare (And I'll not ever forget the petulant swagger he had when he announced his vote)
-OR how he screwed us all by colluding with the rest of the Keating Five to defraud taxpayers by forcing us to bail out an illegal S&L,
-OR how he colluded to put his thumb on the scale to thwart his own party's candidate with the Dossier...
-OR how he suggested to the IRS that they interfere with the nonprofit status of Tea Party/Conservative groups
-OR how he screwed over his constituents by lying/changing his vote about illegal immigration..

I appreciate his service in the military but as a senator he was a disaster. He deprived his state and his party of representation and his vote. I hope his wife doesn't get his seat; its not an inherited sinecure. He was a dick, too His first wife, Carol, kept their family together while he was a POW, was seriously injured in a car accident and didn't tell him. She was in a wheelchair and suffering from her injuries when he came home...and she still kept the family together...and he cheated on her with Cindy Hensley, a wealthy heiress. He divorced Carol and married Cindy.
And he doesn't want DJT at his funeral. Not man people can be bitter, resentful assholes from beyond the grave.

Posted by: nerdygirl at August 25, 2018 10:05 PM (+lVUW)


Back during the day of VCRs, I used to tape Letterman's NBC show and watch it the next day or so. After a while I noticed he was a really terrible interviewer, particularly about musicians. I'm sure the human bouncing lightbulb, Paul Schaefer, who was actually a good musician as long as you didn't have to watch him, worked his ass off to get musicians gigs on the show. And then they come on and pervert Dave doesn't even have the courtesy to listen to a comp cd of their latest work in his limo drive from out in the sticks to work instead of jerking off to porn. So he ends up asking the musicians dumbfuck questions like asking Robbie Robertson where his next tour stop is and saying "oh they have really good restaurants there" while Robertson is shooting death rays at Schaefer.

After that revelation I figured out his humor was really dumb and just taped Lonesome Dove over everything and said fuck it.

Eerie. This is something that is spoken about by those dying more
than many know. And from people who are not dying from any type of brain
malady. They see people. Often it is deceased parents and/or other
family members who have passed. Easy to write off because brain cancer
so of course it's an hallucination. I'm not so sure.

Posted by: Dack Thrombosis at August 25, 2018 10:00 PM (4ErVI)



My grandmother said similar things about seeing family members who had passed in the room and calling to her before she died. She did not have brain cancer. I hope I'm so lucky one day...on both counts. Not soon tho.....

He did not give the Steel Dossier to the FBI.

McCain allowed himself to be used to give an air of legitimacy to the document and give the conspirators a news hook in order brief the President and to further give the news media an excuse to report something which they had.


The FBI had and had been using the dossier to secure FISA warrants for almost a year.

McCain is and was a piece of shit.

I have recurring dreams where I return to a place I've been before but long since left, like a college dorm room, and there's still a bunch of my stuff there. Sometimes I try to get it packed up to take with me but am never successful. I interpret it as unfinished business, and regrets for what I either passed up or left behind.

343 Back during the day of VCRs, I used to tape Letterman's NBC show and watch it the next day or so. After a while I noticed he was a really terrible interviewer, particularly about musicians. I'm sure the human bouncing lightbulb, Paul Schaefer, who was actually a good musician as long as you didn't have to watch him, worked his ass off to get musicians gigs on the show. And then they come on and pervert Dave doesn't even have the courtesy to listen to a comp cd of their latest work in his limo drive from out in the sticks to work instead of jerking off to porn. So he ends up asking the musicians dumbfuck questions like asking Robbie Robertson where his next tour stop is and saying "oh they have really good restaurants there" while Robertson is shooting death rays at Schaefer.

After that revelation I figured out his humor was really dumb and just taped Lonesome Dove over everything and said fuck it.

Eh...

For a lot of people, it's just a hair dye job away. Hair color is mutable. It's whatever you want it to be, just like fingernails or toenails. Or even eye color, if you've got the right contact lenses. Take that attitude in mind, and when your hair finally does start turning grey on its own, you just dye it to a different color. Doesn't even need to be an outlandish color. Maybe you just feel like being a redhead for a week.

I think that one of the reasons Trump won is that he is so different from McCain. McCain sucked up to media types no matter how badly they treated him. They said rotten things about him and he apologized for himself and went back for more. He cared about what they thought of him.

Trump seems to not care what they think about him. They say rotten things about him and instead of apologizing he hits back. People don't respect weakness, they respect a fighter.

I believe that they think they can drive him out of office. That he will give up and resign, like Nixon did. I don't think he will.

Of course I still want to know who the hell is telling young women that tattoos...especially large ones...make them look better.

407 I met a woman once a long time ago whose hair turned gray naturally in her mid-20s. She was quite attractive.

So ladies, you don't *have* to color your hair, unless of course you want to. Gray hair can still look nice.

The thing that bothers me is when women reach a certain age and get their hair chopped off in an almost mannish style. That says, "I don't care about attracting men anymore."

I mean, I can see getting tired of dealing with long hair, but there are plenty of short hairstyles that still look feminine.

When my dad retired from the Navy, he grew his beard out, dyed his hair and beard some kind of henna-type red, and hasn't cut either since. I still get a #2 clipper cut every month, do the same with the beard, and keep it trimmed. Both are dark blond with a little gray.

We've both been out of the Navy for over ten years. It's frankly weird as shit to see a long-haired hippie version of me, only older.

Posted by: Northernlurker, but call me Teem at August 25, 2018 10:33 PM (nBr1j)


I used to do programming at a college radio station, mainly as a replacement for when people were out of town for whatever reason. I mostly did, for lack of a better categorization, jazz although it was heavily weighted to the avant garde which most people would consider unlistenable noise. So I was setting up to do a show and the guy before me saw that I had some of pianist Cecil Taylor's work. He told me that he'd attended one of Cecil's workshops at Bennington college in Vermont. I was floored by that and didn't have enough time for any in depth discussions but asked him if there was anything that stuck out in his mind as unique.

He said that in discussions Cecil said he liked to be surprised by an out of the blue question that made him think. Shortly thereafter there was a reception where all the donation swells attended that sounded like a colossal snore. Cecil was surrounded by a bunch of pretentious dickweeds who probably didn't understand the first fucking thing about his music so this guy walks up and says "so Cecil, who do you like in the Super Bowl". CT gave him a sly smile and answered him.

She gripes most days, while brushing it out and braiding it. Sure is beautiful.

Now, I've got long gray hair, and I'm ready to get a military buzz, tired of hassling with it. But whenever I say I'm going to get it cut, Milady says she will, too.

489 Elton John is my fav. Real story: went to concert, up in nose-bleed seats. Some guy who knows Elton's bandmates hands us two tickets for main floor. Turned out it was first row. Band gets ticks or every show but can't always use them. Incredible performance. Stood right in behind him to watch his hands during "Funeral for a Friend" encore.

The Byrds had, for all too brief a time, Clarence White. I still look up those videos from time to time, and they are electric. I saw an interview with Roger McGuinn in which he said, essentially, that he had stopped bothering with solos, because Clarence White was there.

I don't like the "Wheels on Fire" song all that much, but with Clarence White playing, it's a different story.

Oh, and let's airbrush his coffin to look like an A-4 Skyhawk cockpit.

The "kill" symbols under the cockpit can be silhouettes of the previous planes he'd crashed, a stack of $100s to represent the Keating Five Scandal, and a "Thumbs Down" icon to show his final, traitorous vote.

Zeppelin over appreciated, loud garage band.


I'm a huge Pink Floyd fan (more so than Zep), but Jimmy Page is an excellent guitarist in his own right, and John Bonham was a far better drummer than Nick Mason (who would wholeheartedly and honestly agree with me).

John Paul Jones is a better bassist than Roger waters.

I prefer Gilmour to Page, but only for stylistic differences.

Floyd's originality is what made made them great.

Zep made most of their money off of brilliant covers and "borrowed" riffs.

539 @506 RBG was a replacement for the prolife Byron Whizzer White.
-----------------

I've got a biography of him that I was given as a gift. I need to reread it.

I've noted it here before, but it's worth noting again. The biography explicitly points out that Justice White was fully willing to accept majority opinions that he'd voted against, and would incorporate them into other opinions that he crafted as a US Supreme Court Justice. The sole exception to that was Roe v. Wade. He thought the Roe v. Wade opinion was so awful that he never once used it in any of the opinions that he wrote, even though he was on the court for two decades after the opinion was issued.

Posted by: junior at August 25, 2018 11:21 PM (+kpRK)

540 So basically, the middle plate is loose, and attempting to slide around. Since the bolts are attached to the middle plate, the movement is visible when the plates aren't spinning (i.e. when the a/c is off). I tested it myself with the engine shut off by carefully moving the middle plate. It moved around freely within the limits imposed by the bolts.

The noises that I've been hearing have evidently been the middle plate rattling around as the engine is in operation.
Posted by: junior at August 25, 2018 10:17 PM (+kpRK)

Referring to your linked photo, that is an a/c clutch alright. The left-hand item is an electromagnet, and it is fixed to the front of the compressor and is always stationary. The middle item is the pulley, which rotates freely on the shaft using its contained sealed ball bearing. The "G" in "Omega" is touching the inner race of the ball bearing, the black circle is a rubber seal, and the outer race is barely visible, as it is in a recess on the unseen side of the pulley.

Now the right-hand assembly is the actual working guts of the clutch. The triangular piece with the three large knobs on it is called a "spider" and it is pressed or keyed onto the compressor shaft, and when it rotates, so does the compressor. Those big knobs contain coil springs, not real strong ones, that pull on the heads of those three dime-sized rivets, which are locked into your "middle plate", which is in fact the moving disc of the clutch. When the electromagnet is energized (you turned on the a/c switch), the field it creates passes through the pulley, and causes the clutch disc to glom onto the front face of the pulley, tightly (and compresses the three coil springs in those little round pockets). The pulley, constantly spun by the serpentine belt, drags the clutch disc with it, and the compressor runs at the speed of the pulley. Those clutches lock up tight. If they slip at all, they will be eaten up in minutes.

Sounds like your a/c clutch has something loose inside it, or maybe the bearing has failed. Just have your mechanic replace the a/c clutch. It is a very easy job with the right tools, and the freon should not have to be changed.

560 Cop on "Live PD" found a dildo / vibrator while searching a car. He said "I don't want to touch that".

Posted by: AshevilleRobert at August 25, 2018 11:27 PM (w+Jhj)

561 540 So basically, the middle plate is loose, and attempting to slide around. Since the bolts are attached to the middle plate, the movement is visible when the plates aren't spinning (i.e. when the a/c is off). I tested it myself with the engine shut off by carefully moving the middle plate. It moved around freely within the limits imposed by the bolts.

The noises that I've been hearing have evidently been the middle plate rattling around as the engine is in operation.
Posted by: junior at August 25, 2018 10:17 PM (+kpRK)

Referring to your linked photo, that is an a/c clutch alright. The left-hand item is an electromagnet, and it is fixed to the front of the compressor and is always stationary. The middle item is the pulley, which rotates freely on the shaft using its contained sealed ball bearing. The "G" in "Omega" is touching the inner race of the ball bearing, the black circle is a rubber seal, and the outer race is barely visible, as it is in a recess on the unseen side of the pulley.
Now the right-hand assembly is the actual working guts of the clutch. The triangular piece with the three large knobs on it is called a "spider" and it is pressed or keyed onto the compressor shaft, and when it rotates, so does the compressor. Those big knobs contain coil springs, not real strong ones, that pull on the heads of those three dime-sized rivets, which are locked into your "middle plate", which is in fact the moving disc of the clutch. When the electromagnet is energized (you turned on the a/c switch), the field it creates passes through the pulley, and causes the clutch disc to glom onto the front face of the pulley, tightly (and compresses the three coil springs in those little round pockets). The pulley, constantly spun by the serpentine belt, drags the clutch disc with it, and the compressor runs at the speed of the pulley. Those clutches lock up tight. If they slip at all, they will be eaten up in minutes.
Sounds like your a/c clutch has something loose inside it, or maybe the bearing has failed. Just have your mechanic replace the a/c clutch. It is a very easy job with the right tools, and the freon should not have to be changed.

I say again: 90% of ALL biomedical science research is shit. And that's a conservative estimate.

Also, recall that the Lancet had an article some years ago claiming that we'd killed, what, 100,000 or so Iraqis. Now while I agree that we probably should've whacked a lot more than that, their figures lumped in with those we killed those killed by Al Aqaeda, etc., who were the considerable majority of those killed. You know, the way scientists would, as opposed to the way Communist propagandists would promulgate false statistics.

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

Thanks. As I mentioned, the "middle plate" is shifting in relation to the spider even when the spider is stationary (and I was able to move it with my own hand when I checked it). That's what's causing the noise I've been hearing. While I'm curious about what caused the problem to begin with, I am glad to know that the whole compressor assembly doesn't have to be dealt with.


PS - Should we tell the 'ettes that they all have spiders in their cars?

Palin was supposed to be the reverse wringer that killed the campaign. Instead she nearly dragged his ass across the finish line. and that guy was right, what they did to her DID help get us Trump.

I agree. Palin was an unknown governor of an out-of-the-way state, and we were supposed to go "Sarah who?" Instead she became an unexpected smash hit, a la "The Producers".

639 So, at my Mom's for the night.

Got in, and immediately smelled something foul. Went in the back bedroom, which had been mine back in high school in a previous millennium, and the smell 'bout knocked me out. No question about it: something died.

We checked the room, checked the closets, under the bed. Son went up in the attic and found nothing. (Mom had some probs with squirrels up there in the past.) So, we figure, it's under the house. Really bad. Fifty years she's lived here, never had anything like it.

Wasn't going to mention it, but, then I wondered, maybe it's McCain....

Okay, that was almost funny in my head. I obviously need to check out.

All I will say about that is there has been no statement at all that Cindy is not interested in taking her husband's place. That would have immediately ended the speculation.

It hasn't been done. McCain did not retire so that an election for his seat could take place prior to his death. They have every intention of sticking her in the seat.

I read somewhere that being able to send CW is a transferrable skill across keys and lamps, but copying a solid 20 or 30 wpm doesn't necessarily translate at all between them. Which makes sense, since tapping a key or flapping a shutter or smacking the back of someone's head is the same general principle, but visual and auditory are completely different parts of your brain. Since you're supposed to learn to copy without translating the characters consciously - like how you can read or listen without thinking about the language - training one doesn't translate to the other. So don't feel bad, unless you used to be a signalman or something.

Yes, audio CDs are read from inside out.

They're also constant linear velocity, while vinyl is constant angular velocity.

So a CD slows down the closer you get to the outside edge, and vinyl always spins at 33+1/3 rpm (or 45 or whatever).

Posted by: Calm Mentor at August 26, 2018 12:53 AM (I16G8)

759 I had a friend in high school that turned out to by a POS bastard, and I regret being the best man at his first wedding. He left two or three wives and his kids and pretends to be important. When I read Xenophon's Anabasis (Ten Thousand) I thought of him when I read the last comments Xenophon makes about General Menon (Gutenberg.org, translation HG Dakyns)

"As to Menon the Thessalian , the mainspring of his action was obvious;
what he sought after insatiably was wealth. Rule he sought after only as a
stepping-stone to larger spoils. Honours and high estate he craved for
simply that he might extend the area of his gains; and if he studied to be
on friendly terms with the powerful, it was in order that he might commit
wrong with impunity.

The shortest road to the achievement of his desires
lay, he thought, through false swearing, lying, and cheating; for in his
vocabulary simplicity and truth were synonyms of folly. Natural affection
he clearly entertained for nobody. If he called a man his friend it might
be looked upon as certain that he was bent on ensnaring him. Laughter at
an enemy he considered out of place, but his whole conversation turned
upon the ridicule of his associates. In like manner, the possessions of
his foes were secure from his designs, since it was no easy task, he
thought, to steal from people on their guard; but it was his particular
good fortune to have discovered how easy it is to rob a friend in the
midst of his security.

If it were a perjured person or a wrongdoer, he
dreaded him as well armed and intrenched; but the honourable and the
truth-loving he tried to practise on, regarding them as weaklings devoid
of manhood. And as other men pride themselves on piety and truth and
righteousness, so Menon prided himself on a capacity for fraud, on the
fabrication of lies, on the mockery and scorn of friends.

The man who was
not a rogue he ever looked upon as only half educated. Did he aspire to
the first place in another man's friendship, he set about his object by
slandering those who stood nearest to him in affection. He contrived to
secure the obedience of his solders by making himself an accomplice in
their misdeeds, and the fluency with which he vaunted his own capacity and
readiness for enormous guilt was a sufficient title to be honoured and
courted by them. Or if any one stood aloof from him, he set it down as a
meritorious act of kindness on his part that during their intercourse he
had not robbed him of existence."

CDs* track from the center out. They also use constant linear velocity unlike LPs - the outer track of an LP is theoretically more detailed because more linear groove travels under the needle for a given period of time than the inner tracks, because the rotational speed doesn't change. CDs* change rotational (angular) velocity so the inner and outer tracks have the same density - each 'strip' read by the head has the same length, no matter where it is relative to the center of the disc.

floppies were constant angular velocity as well. That meant the data density was greater toward the center.

Hard drives can have a varying number of sectors per track, based on this. You can write much faster on the outer cylinders. The firmware of modern drives does all this, transparent to the outside.

I'm remembering. Another cool thing FDFORMAT first did, and the others would to. The old 360K DD 5.25" disks were 40 tracks. The tracks were wider radially.

But the HD drives, which put 80 tracks on just double stepped for the 360KB DD disks. There could be problems reading their written output on the old DD drives.

Anyway, FDFORMAT just turned off double stepping and allowed you to put 80 tracks, doubling the capacity to 720KB on 5.25" DD diskettes.

It could do all sorts of tricks to cram more data on the standard diskettes.

I used to think 2MB was a lot....

I've actually watched ESPN this past week because the Little League World Series is on.

(Not even a big baseball fan, just like watching the kids get the chance to play on a big stage.)

802 As for not speaking ill of the dead, the Horde has much to thank McCain for. His performance in the 2008 election, along with many of his senatorial initiatives, we're critical in Trump's victory in the 2016 primaries. His vote to save Obamacare was confirmation to many that the GOPe does exist, and does not actually believe in the conservative values lies they feed the base.

I hope his last thought was the Trump(!) was the better man.

805 We have more than enough of McCain's career bullshit to rag on, that it's an embarrassment of riches, there.

But for realz, he was a serious boxer at the Naval Academy, and drove the Boxing program to do much better than it had then, to date.

So yeah, I credit him those Boxing props.

Something else I credit him with. Damn few of us can qualify for Carrier Duty in a Piper Cub, much less any sort of Dot Mil Jet. Family connections aside, one just doesn't keep landing jets on deck without a certain level of skill... and balls.

So, he was on the low end of Naval Aviators. I'd aspire to BE on that low end... but how many Private Pilots with hours in the hundreds on light singles can really BITCH about how they'd be so much BETTER?

That said? He was in the SEWER as to his political career. Beginning to end, front to back, side to side, top to bottom.

He was a political piece of shit.

The Navy should have disowned him, decades ago.

As should the House, the Senate, and the voters of Arizona.

Not to mention his ex, jilted kids and the countless shipmates he'd shat on during his endless upwards climb.

But, the man boxed, hard....and landed jets on carriers.

I despise him. But I respect the aviation aspect, IN SPITE of his aircraft losses along the way.

Suck it up, Horde... call the balls and strikes ACCURATELY... and the rest of the whackball 'net can hate us for our honesty, integrity and accuracy.

I could probably call my dad right now and in about five minutes he'd go down to the basement and come back with the original paper receipt for a second 1541 disk drive and a copy of Fast Hack'em for Commodore 64 dated 1985.

It didn't fit any more on the disks, but it could copy 170K from one disk to another (assuming you have two 1541s) in about 30 seconds. 3 minutes or so, if you used the low-level copy that would duplicate intentional disk flaws and odd track layouts to defeat copy protection.

I guess it'll come in handy again some day.

Fuck you, asshole. Sidewise, pineapple, barbed wire, cayenne pepper, the whole damn thing. Assemble it yourself, fuckhead, and insert accordingly, if you're possessed of the intellect to realize the designated orifice.

YOU look up and research the syllabus for USN Basic Flight School, and subsequent qualifications.

Even in McCain's day, REGARDLESS of family connections... a certain amount of fuckedupedness would equal washoutedness, in a HURRY.

To be deployed in theatre, means that in Carrier Quals, he had to make at least six NIGHT landings on deck, in operational conditions.

You don't FAKE that kind of skill.

Do you know what they call the Medical School Graduate at the bottom of his or her class?

You're not a DOCTOR, you're damn sure not a qualified NAVAL AVIATOR, and you damn sure didn't have the COURAGE to have even posted under whatever nic is your normative ID here.

Yes, I get what he's saying, we were both brought up to respect people's views even if we didn't share them and to be civil at all times. But can he really be talking about the same person you folks are? And since he is one of the last people I would normally expect to touch a political topic, that makes it even more odd. Not sure what to make of it.

Though she was well about the age when most pay much attention to pop music, she heard a lot of ABBA on that trip and it resonated with her. A year later the band was on their only ever US tour (they actually performed live remarkably few times) and so we saw them in Anaheim. Not something that I'd have ever chosen on my own but big venue concerts weren't a frequent opportunity at that age.
So the band tonight might have been surprised to learn there were two people in the audience who could actually compared them to the originals. None of them were even born until about ten years after the group broke up and the two Bs started a new career in the theater with 'Chess'.
My mother is now at the point where she requires a lot of supervision, so getting out like tonight may not happen many more times.

860 In remembrance of John McCain:

Some of us will remember him for things he did when he was younger and some of us will remember him for things he did when he was older.

In a way they're like two different people in so far as their apparent value.

He has gone to where his life will be weighed and judged by someone who will know what he thought and felt during every moment. The lies he was told and the lies he told himself.

All. Of. It.

It is a giant leap. We have NO facts to anticipate what will really happen past this existence yet we'll all have to experience that eventually.

If you think you've done better with your life than Mr. McCain did with his then consider yourself lucky.

I think most of us if we're honest will come out about 50/50 and that only with mercy and kindness used in the judging.

When he was alive it might have been useful to criticize and complain. Even to call names (I know I have)

Now? He's where we cannot reach, so let him be.

What's past is past and the more important thing for us is to face the future.

(note I truly do understand those who defend him and those who despise him. In requiesat pace.)

861 It occurred to me when they announced that McCain was not going to receive any more treatment for his brain tumor, and the timing seems to confirm it:

He has probably been on life support (ventilator) for quite some time, and not actually receiving any treatments aimed at "treating" the tumor. By "not undergo any further treatment" they meant, "withdraw from life support".

I don't really care enough to investigate this theory, and don't trust any reporting on the situation. Just speculating.

And those same Men were not in the political position McCain was... and used it to screw us.


I won't celebrate his death.... but neither will I celebrate his life.... and we will have DAYS of Media, who hated him before, singing his praises.


I'm of the opinion Death should be a private thing for friends and family... .not a damn media circus where we are SUPPOSED to care.

Dear ace,

I ask you and everyone else at your website to consider the following.
Death comes to us all.
No matter who you are, you will die.
Death has come to J McCain.
It is in no way our place to judge him - that is, his ultimate destiny and purchase as a soul. To do so would be to assume the Savior's Divine Role as God Himself.

I, myself, am extremely grateful and glad that McCain no longer serves a role as one of our many overlords in the Government (specifically in the very powerful the US Senate). It's much better that he is gone - BY WHATEVER MEANS - than that he stay and be a nasty part of lording over us.

That said: the man is dead.
We can only besmirch ourselves by savoring and ridiculing his death.

He is no longer in power and that is enough.


Posted by: Cold Civil War at August 26, 2018 02:23 AM (Z2PYk)

869 Yeah. I thought about it and although I see your point about others more deserving, what I said about being judged still applies.

It irks but does no good to dwell.

So I thought that rather than get all heated up, that I would just let the man go to bother me no more.

But that is an accomplishment. I guess you're asking how many could qualify for Carrier landing?

You could look it up as to the current roster of Naval Aviators.

And if you form the ? correctly you can get an estimate of the number of washouts. And then you'll have your percentage.

It's not minuscule but it isn't double digit millions.

Posted by: rhomboid at August 26, 2018 02:07 AM (QDnY+)


I read a newsletter post by a priest which provided a good explanation for why the Catholic Church has this ongoing molestation problem. Apparently, when a gay or gay activist seminarian/priest goes to confession, he seeks a good priest or bishop not in on the perversions. By doing that, the good priest or bishop is bound by the rules of the confessional, preventing him from speaking out. The gay/gay activist priests are using Church rules/law against the Church.

It seems there is also an active attempt by gay/gay activist priests to subvert newer seminarians/priests just like Hollywood did with their sex scandal. Get them to do something they normally would not do and you have power over them forever, that power including silencing critics.

Many of us have posited, apparently correctly, that B16 was run out of office by the faggot cabal. It appears that he put cuffs on one to many of their number, and more than just pressure was brought to bear. I assume something horrid was threatened, although not just to his person. That, he would have withstood.

Now it appears that he may be recalled, out of necessity, and through the actions of the Holy Ghost.

Anyone who tells you that homosexuality is compatible with good living is a liar. This crisis in the Church is clear proof. The simple fact that every homosexual bishop is now claiming the issue is something, anything other than homosexual predation makes clear that it is exactly that, and nothing else.

We as a country have given homosexuals the power to cause such great anguish, so much so that seminarians were trying to commit suicide because they were victims. If you think this does not happen elsewhere, you are sorely mistaken.

And the next fool who posits that allowing priests to marry will somehow curb the homosexual predation that takes place needs to just stop.

I went to confession today, and told the priest I needed to confess anger, because I was so very angry about this crisis. He said I need not confess it because it was righteous anger, and the root cause was the lack of justice. He said he obviously felt precisely that anger, but I suspect his experience of it was much more personal.

At any rate, check out what Bishop Morlino wrote in his letter to the faithful. He may be the only one who is speaking truth and acting upon it at this juncture.

There's been a few variations in memorable works. Larry Niven had mohawks among male and female Belters be a common style because keeping hair under control was a critical issue when you spent a lot of time in an EVA suit and couldn't brush errant hair out of your eyes. Fouling up life support systems was another concern.

Alvin Toffler was a guy who used to be taken seriously regarding his predictions for the future. This in turn inspired SF writers, like John Brunner, who derived the title of his novel 'The Shockwave Rider' from Toffler's 'Future Shock'. The novel was memorable for the plot device of computer malware in an era when most people still couldn't imagine owning their own computer. Even Brunner didn't expect that, instead depicting a society that put public terminals everywhere and whose member often had no fixed physical address, just their electronic communication address. (Email existed but Brunner wasn't aware of it as it was in use in just a handful of academic and government facilities.)

One of the things Toffler predicted was increasingly outlandish fashions as people desperately sought individuality. The main limiting factor would what technology offered. He imagined there would be humans in every color of the rainbow if it became cheap and easy to do this to themselves. This hasn't happened but consider how common tattooing has become. When I was a teenager I only knew a very few people with the extensive tattooing I now see any time I leave the house, and I spent most of a year working on the carnival circuit when the word geek had a very different meaning than today.

That said, the thing that most sticks in my mind is the vote to repeal OCare, and his dramatic thumbs down to defeat the bill. His excuse was that "proper process" wasn't followed. The real reason was that he didn't want to give Trump a huge victory because of what he said about he wanted his hero's to not be prisoners. McCain's vote was pure spite, and fuck the American people. And the fact that he held on to his Senate seat until he died said that he didn't care about his constituents, he only wanted his power. If he had been honorable, he would have resigned his seat in December when he knew beyond a doubt that he would not be back to the Senate. Like Gollum, he had to hold on to his "Precious". They both sold their soul for something that they could never obtain.

I don't wish him or his family ill, but the man who claimed to be honorable had no honor or integrity. He won't be missed by those who have both, and will be lauded by those who have neither.

909 The Las Vegas shooting/cover up by the FBI has been discussed here often. A big question is why? From this blog post: https://preview.tinyurl.com/yb2qf3a8

Things that make you go 'hmmm'.

Feds Scramble after Las Vegas Shooter's Girlfriend Lists FBI as Place of Employment on Loan Application; 'She Might have Been an Asset'


Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of Las Vegas mass shooter Stephen Paddock, worked for the FBI, according to credit application data the Australian national reported as part of a loan application.

That's the same Danley whose fingerprints were found on Paddock's horde of ammunition packed into unused rifle magazines.

Publicly available intelligence obtained from consumer credit reporting bureaus show Danley claimed the "Federal Bureau of Investigation" as her place of employment.

Interesting revelation.

When contacted Friday, one FBI source said the Bureau "might have made payments to Danley but it is above my level," the source said referring to access to the FBI's confidential informant participant and payment records. The source said "bosses are concerned" with the new revelations about Danley's financial relationship with the FBI.

In FBI speak, Danley could have been a paid asset. And 'concerned' means folks are getting ready to cover their own butts if payments were made to Danley either before or after the massacre.

Perhaps FBI Director Christopher Wray can shed light on the matter.

Or Danley. If you can find her. It took the FBI days to locate her and interview her after the Mandalay Bay massacre.

Danley is an Australian national. She is not a U.S. citizen.

Of course this bombshell Intel is coming from FBI sources in the beltway, not the corrupt Las Vegas FBI field office headed by Aaron Rouse. The same FBI field office that has not been able to pinpoint a motive for the Oct. 1, 2017 massacre that killed 57 people.

Little wonder why the narrative doesn't fit the crime if the person whose fingerprints are on the ammunition also happens to be on your FBI payroll.

A YouTube video surfaced Thursday highlighting a database search with Danley's apparent employment link to the FBI as reported by database giant Intelius as well.

Perhaps a member of Congress can investigate. Who else can we call?

The FBI?

This story is developing.


This fits the 'corruption all the way down the line at the FBI' meme.

I disagree that continuing to speak of his missteps constitutes "savoring and ridiculing his death".

Pointing out "politicians behaving badly" is exactly how we got Trump.

And asking for genteel political correctness at this site is... let's just say I'm glad nobody talked about celebratory pudding rituals.

He is no longer in power and that is enough.

It was almost enough, though it's too late to fix it now.

He abandoned the people of Arizona. He should have resigned the minute he was planning to "go home" permanently and stop acting as their senator.

This is not the voting record of an honorable man with his constituent's interests at heart:

https://tinyurl.com/y72hvqj5

A single vote last December, and the last vote before that in late October. That's 10 months where he cast a single vote. Almost 9 straight with no votes.

932 McCain qualified as a carrier pilot. That is no mean feat as many wash out. What he did or may have done as a young man is different and may actually have no bearing on what he did or does later in life. McCain wanted to emulate his grandsires and his father. He wanted to be as good or even better than them to show that he had the right stuff. I can never know what happened in the Hanoi Hilton to him. Men are shaped by what they suffer, and some suffer more than others. For that I can almost give him a pass. I cannot imagine the torture he endured, like many of his fellow prisoners.

I will not and cannot condone what he has done as a politician. He told a great lie that a good many bought. He championed himself as friend of the people, but betrayed them when it profited him.

I remember seeing a poster when I was young. It said "Trust neither the politician nor the actor, because both have been taught to lie for their bread" I take that to heart.

934 Muldoon, the two shouldn't even be in the same conversation - which is to say, a SCOTUS "vote" often now eclipses a Senate vote - not to mention the votes of all voters who elect the political branches, which have been usurped/have allowed their authority to be stolen or diluted.


But the country is a cozy frog that's already largely boiled, when it comes to constitutional order. Federal courts at all levels are wildly out of control, and there's not a hint that anyone anywhere intends to do a thing about it, nor that the country even understands what's happening. All focus is on temporarily making the rogue institution less damaging with personnel changes ("conservative" judges), which is a weak short-term strategy and no kind of longer term strategy at all.

That reminds me of a story.

Once upon a time, an African tribal chief received from a foreign emissary, as a gift, a massive, golden, jewel en crusted throne. Being a rather paranoid sort of chieftain, and not wanting anybody to steal the throne, he hid it in a secret space in the attic of his grass hut.

One day, while doing tribal chief type stuff the weight of the throne caused the roof to collapse, and the throne fell right on top of the chief's head, killing him as dead as a doornail.

Moral of the story: People who live in grass houses should not stow thrones.

Now what percentage make it to that point? What percentage even try? I know I've never tried to fly a plane, much less a fighter, much less one that lands on a carrier.

This is like saying "50 percent of quarterbacks at the NFL tryouts make the team, therefore the skills required to be an NFL quarterback are not so rare, since 50% of Americans could do it."

1030 Good morning kids. Up early. My reaction to McCain exiting:

Putting whatever his record was in the military and as a POW aside (and that is an area of contention in and of itself), McCain the man was petty, vindictive, venal, stubborn and interested in only one thing - his own embellishment. He was a crook (Keating Five anyone?), a willing servant of the Deep State and his role in attempting to sabotage and then overthrow the 2016 election and presidency of the current chief executive, if it is ever fully revealed, will prove him to be a disgrace, or worse. If he deserves to be remembered for anything, it is for 36 years of being the exact opposite of what a person of leadership and character ought to be.

Condolences for his family.

1049 McCain, socialist elitist who was held in low regard by his fellow servicemen. Of course the media and demorats cover for him as best they can, seeing as he betrayed his Country and fellow servicemen. See songbird, the name they gave to him. The left always tries to compensate for pos's traitors that pass away. Remember Teddy Kennedy ? Expect Pelosi, Durban, Reed and Pocahontas to get the same treatment. Get buried in an asbestos suit John, you're gonna need it. Judas didn't try as hard to betray as you did.

1050 Demorats take on muslim jihadist. Why was the America armed to defend himself ? Had the muslim been in bed with Mexican drug lords, the demorats could have made sure he was armed more appropriately. The man with the gun should have offered to make peace with the muslim attacker by offering his children and wife as slaves and allowing the muslim to behead him. Must not be a demorat running the show now, eh ?
