The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"It is distressing that DCFS continues to be unlawful in targeting reasonable parents. Letting a child walk the dog isn't a dangerous decision that needs to be penalized—with the risk of the parent losing their job if they land on the child abuse registry—it needs to be encouraged in order to help children grow into responsible adults." Diane Redleaf

And there lies the rub. Government from local to Washington, D.C. does not want responsible adults. They want pliant pieces of human putty to shape and control.


Quote II

"As a practical matter, when a firearm is kept in a home for self-defense, it is always ‘in use. Criminals never take a day off, and they never call ahead. To serve its self-defense purpose, a gun must be readily accessible whenever its owner believes he might possibly need it."Michigan attorney general Bill Schuette

Dementia is a horrible and cruel disease. Is this the best way to keep track of a wandering dementia patient?

NOW WITH GPS. Three Square Market (32M) is no longer content to simply microchip its employees. The Wisconsin-based company now want to put trackable implants into people with dementia.

32M’s CEO Todd Westby announced the plan on CNBC’s “Closing Bell” on Wednesday. Westby said the company is working on a voice-activated, body-heat-powered chip that can monitor a person’s vital signs and track them via GPS. It plans to beta test the chips in 2019 and will seek Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for them.

TARGET AUDIENCE. The company’s president, Patrick McMullan, added that patients who suffer from dementia would be a primary target for the GPS implant. “Without question it’s a worthy cause, and it’s a product in demand,” he said.

In this situation is this the road to Hell paved with good intentions?

Are the days of Fake IDs behind us? Facial recognition system nabs an impostor.

The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) noted in a press release that earlier this week, a 26-year-old man traveling from Brazil with a French passport was flagged by the airport’s facial recognition tech, which was put in place just three days ago. Upon a secondary check, he was found to be from the Republic of Congo and impersonating the man whose picture was in his passport

While we are on the subject of traveling, meet the flight attendant I've never had.

Is this car so ugly that it is beautiful? And will it give Tesla a run for its money? The Kalashnikov CV-1.

Normally, when you think of Kalashnikov, you likely think about guns, especially the famous AK-47 assault rifle that perhaps you once bought as a gift for your grandma. The company now has its gunsights aimed at Tesla, which they’re targeting with their new electric car prototype, the CV-1. Hilariously and delightfully, the car appears to have the body of a 1970s Moskovitch.

The ONT Musical Interlude



August 26, 1981, Ottawa City Council named 'Paul Anka Day' to celebrate his 25th anniversary in show-business. The council also named a street in Ottawa 'Paul Anka Drive' in his honour. The Canadian singer songwriter had written over 900 songs including the classic 'My Way'. via thisdayinmusic.com


August 26, 1965, Sonny & Cher were at No.1 on the UK singles chart with 'I Got You Babe', the duo's only UK No.1. Sonny Bono was inspired to write the song to capitalize on the popularity of the term "babe," as heard in Bob Dylan's 'It Ain't Me Babe'.



August 26, 1987, Sonny Bono, who once said that he never voted until he was 53, announced that he was running for mayor of Palm Springs, California. He won the election in 1988 and went on to win a seat in Congress in 1996. via thisdayinmusic.com


Hell's juke box? Or what were they thinking?

San Francisco, It just keeps getting weirder and weirder by the day. No shit.

We wish we could say this was a satire piece, but a new story in the San Francisco Chronicle reveals just how lucrative collecting shit actually is.

It's but the latest in a string of shocking revelations to hit headlines throughout the summer exposing how deep San Francisco's crisis of vast amounts of vagrant-generated feces covering its public streets actually runs (no pun intended).

We detailed last week how city authorities have finally decided to do something after thousands of feces complaints (during only one week in July, over 16,000 were recorded), the cancellation of a major medical convention and an outraged new Mayor, London Breed, who was absolutely shocked after walking through her city: they established a professional "poop patrol".

Damn good work if you can get it. Iowa State professors scam the system for big bucks.

The NSF has awarded three Iowa State University professors more than $248,000 to study “gender microaggressions” in engineering, claiming that the research will ultimately help students “feel safe.”

On August 13, the taxpayer-funded National Science Foundation (NSF) granted funding for the study “Collaborative Research: An Intersectional Perspective to Studying Microaggressions in Engineering Programs,” which is slated to cost taxpayers at least $248,744 over the next four years.

Once again a youthful criminal learns that Social Media is not his friend but makes him our Genius Award Winner.

A 17-year-old male has been arrested after police say he stole an AR-15 and tactical gear from a Palm Beach Sheriff's deputy's unmarked police car.

The suspect was arrested by Boynton Beach police late Saturday after the teen reportedly flaunted the stolen weapons and gear during an Instagram live stream while dancing to rap music according to the Miami Herald.

Records show the deputy reported the items stolen to Boynton Beach police on Aug 14 after leaving his unmarked cruiser at a shopping plaza for a few hours.

Among some of the items stolen from the cruiser were two loaded magazines, a gas mask, Taser, a ballistic helmet, and rifle clips.

In the land of nuts and moar nuts, California youth Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

She pulled over to take a picture and then posted it on her Facebook page. This is what she wrote.

"First day of school at Vacaville High and I drive by and see the kids have put American Flags on their trucks and Jeeps. So I pulled over to get a photo.

There is no breeze in site and just as I get ready to snap the picture the wind picks up and all these flags start to dance. It was magical.

I am so proud of these kids who are supporting their classmate whose father is the fallen CHP Officer who was killed in last weeks horrible car accident."

34 Regarding the Michigan AG right about having guns available for use in your home being a right..........................



In Washington State, I-1639 restricting gun rights, upping the purchase of a long rifle to 21 from 18, and requiring every home to have their guns in safes at all times (no 4th Amendment issues there - right?!) got the required number of signatures to be placed on the ballot, but a state court judge ruled the campaign illegal suspended it, because the signature forms were confusing, and not published the way they were supposed to by law. The paid signature gatherers lied out their teeth. I was asked to sign twice, and these people were functional idiots about basic concepts of law.



The WA State Supreme Court, all proud Leftists-Globalists-Secret Communists except for 1, reversed the court and now it is back for the fall ballot.


Local press in the Seattle area continues to mis-report any facts from the pro-gun side, and continue to repeat the false dogma from the gun-grabbers. Actual facts are not allowed, you know.


Wouldn't want the little lemming voters to actually be forced to think.



Wonder if they consider this comment from the Michigan AG to have any weight or meaning?

Paul Ryan is, in my opinion, one of the most unprincipled, cowardly, backstabbing people in Washington, and that's a really low bar.

He's leaving because of the president -- he can't stand him. If clinton was president, as Ryan hoped, he would not be leaving Congress.

49 I know you folks get tired of my recanting of conversations at the bar, but I'm sorry, you seem like the only bastion of logical people I can turn to with my troubles.

So I'm having a conversation with a lady at the bar about the local school system after she states affirmatively that the schools are the best in the country.

I point out that only 31% of the 3-8th graders are grade level proficient in English and 37% at math and at the high school level only 24% were grade level proficient at math and 40% in English.

She then proceeds to berate me as "hating the schools" and says the states test numbers are all "bullsh*t" and don't mean anything that the teachers are great. When I pointed out that nationwide the average IQ of a public school teacher came in below 100, or average, and that parents should be prepared to accept the reality that often times their children were likely to be more intelligent than those that teach them, she got all pissed off at me and called me names I will not repeat here.

Have we reached a point in American society where we can no longer just discuss things from a rational, logical unbiased perspective?

It really is a depressing thought.

53 Hi. Skipping the post & 37 comments to say,

Just watching a good clip of Aretha's great bit in Blues Brothers. Think!

I don't know what the film freaks in the movie thread think of this, but the whole film for me is one of the greatest works ever, and this was certainly a highlight. The intro with John Lee Hooker and scenes of Maxwell Street are an irreproducible slice of music history.

There are other clips that show more before and after the song, but this one is HQ. Aretha was fantastic.

Of course, I'm still high from seeing the premiere in Chicago theater, so I might be prejudiced.

Okay, back to read the post...

My experience in the schools is that the best teachers leave the system because the kids are so out of control that learning is seriously impeded. There are good ones who stay, but it's a mighty struggle to make positive things happen in the classroom.

I've got the correct router bit, but have to get 'hold of a surface planer to reduce some 1" board down to the same dimension as the factory milled, straight cove mouldings.

Once I get it all done, if a COB wants to do a "Hordly Projects" weekend feature, I'll send in some pics.

159 "Well you're part of the problem. You take all the good students out of the public school system." That's pretty honest for a public schoolteacher. They are forbidden by their ideology and their employers to publicly state the plain truth that many kids are simply ineducable, and many more are too disruptive to be around normal students.

Where I fault teachers the most is the crazy political crap they believe and jam into the curriculum. They hate America and Western Civ and white people, and that's what they teach.

My second biggest gripe is that many can't even pass qualification exams on the simplest boneheaded aptitude tests. They'll tell you "I don't need expertise in the subject; teaching is 95% pedagogical method, and 5% facts. Did I tell you I have a degree in pedagogy?"

165 Having read many derogatory comments on the late senator on these threads, I briefly researched the Web in an effort to learn more about the USS Forrestal fire.

Oh boy, talk about all over the map!

Snopes (which I no longer trust) was so virulent in labeling the "McCain to blame" story as false that I took its report with extra salt. Another site purportedly quoted testimony by another officer on the flight deck that supports McCain's account. And the third one I checked pretty much wanted McCain jailed.

So many possibilities:

1) McCain was worthless as an officer, was at fault, and maintained a Navy career only because of his status as Sonny Boy.

2) The accident happened exactly as stated in the official report, and McCain's involvement was coincidental.

3) The accident happened as stated, and the admiral's enemies circulated the other account in an attempt to damage him. (After reading in the book thread about bad blood between Civil War generals, this doesn't seem that far-fetched.)

4) McCain's enemies circulated the allegation.

That's all I can think of.

Seems that anything damaging to the senator would have been unearthed during his presidential run. The MSM didn't hold back on anything else.

I'm afraid this will fall into the ever--growing "unsolved mysteries" file.

Probably. I will say that Kalashnikov has the right idea for an electric car. Utilitarian runabout, and hopefully cheap enough that people will buy it as a second car, and confine its use to the roles for which an electric car is well-suited: short to medium range daily commutes, and local errands. Those people can then have a nice comfy gasoline car for road trips. Tesla's big mistake is claiming that their car is able to do all those tasks well.

My kids - in an upscale coastal California suburb - had an English teacher who promulgated vocabulary sheets with laughably wrong definitions. OTOH, she did have a life-size cardboard cutout of Obama, if you get my drift. Which was most intelligent of the three - the teacher, Obama, or the cutout - was an open question.

One of them also considered taking a course in "environmental science." Now you'd expect that that would be about the carbon cycle, the nitrogen cycle, etc.

No. The reading list was all hard-left Commie crap that, inter alia, extolled the virtues of the Animal Liberation Front and Earth First.

It would indicate a lack of imagination that they cannot conceive of any other reason. Maybe it was a cave man who had not gotten laid in years. Maybe it was a schizophrenic Neanderthal. Come on, there are other possibilities out there.

However, if every question has to be answered with Ancient Astronauts it helps to smoke a pipe and wear a lab coat. Those are unimpeachable signs of science, deep thought and truthiness.

Maybe Trump needs to start wearing a lab coat.

234 Of all the talk show host I hate Ellen the most. If talk show hosts were the Rat Pack she would be Joey Bishop. She is the remora of entertainment. She is a parasite on any other celebrity's talent regardless of how much talent, fame or hackery the other celebrity has. She is bland and unamusing.

I would have said unfunny but her schtick is an attempt to be mildly amusing, but she fails at that worse than a blinking yellow light next to a traffic hazard.

Sure, Bill Maher, Jimmy Kimmell, Stephen Colbert, Seth Whatshisface and the rest can be infuriating with their cheap pandering for clapter but at least they will tell jokes between their zillionth dig at Trump's orangeness, and occasionally they are accidently funny.

On the other hand Ellen is like watching your Aunt Edna's favorite cat videos over and over with your Aunt Edna sitting there laughing and saying "look at that, isn't that just the most adorable thing? Just look!"

But if, somehow, he should remain on the ballot, and despite not campaigning, should somehow actually win, well, that's the will of the people, isn't it?

BourbonChicken, Fritz Lang was one of the early great directors. Legend has it that when Hitler tried to hire him to run German's studio UPA, he almost immediately boarded the first train he could find out of Germany, so he could get to London and a flight to the USA.

As I understand it Lang was a socialist himself, but his films seem to all have a very strong individualist streak. I think my fave film of his of all time is the very noir Scarlet Street, which starred Edward G. Robinson as the ultimate henpecked husband.

259 Having read many derogatory comments on the late senator on these
threads, I briefly researched the Web in an effort to learn more about
the USS Forrestal fire.



Oh boy, talk about all over the map!



It's not hard at all.
Lt Commander John McCain from Light Attack Squadron Eight One (WHO!!! said Sunliners!) was manning up his A-4 Skyhawk when the jet next to him was hit by a rocket fired from an F-4 Phantom owned by Fighter Squadron One One (VF-11). The cause of the rocket firing was stray voltage on the weapons rack, if the safety pins had been in place the rocket would never have fired but lax safety practices in the heat of battle led to the racks not being pinned between flights.
My job in the Navy was the maintenance of the electrical systems in question (communications, navigation, countermeasures and weapons control), and when I got to VFA-81 in the early 2000's I was solemnly informed that WE had caused the Forrestal fire. I worked for three years to dispel that rumor, but apparently it didn't take. Which just goes to prove, a lie circles the world three times before the truth gets its pants on.
LCDR McCain volunteered to cross-deck to another carrier to stay in the war and was subsequently shot down, spending the rest of his wartime tour in the Hanoi Hilton. While he was there he held faith with his fellow POWs, refusing a trip home because of his name (he was the third John McCain in the Navy, his father and grandfather were Admirals). John McCain the Sailor's actions were in accordance with the highest traditions of the United States Navy. John McCain the Senator on the other hand...
In short, John McCain had the misfortune to be in the aircraft next to the one that got hit by VF-11's rocket. And that's really all you need to know about McCain and the Forrestal fire.

They discuss putting one up, all the kids and teachers are raving for it, they find some sucker to "partner financially" with, they ignore the warnings from engineers that it's a money-losing project, up it goes, it breaks within a couple years, they can't find parts for the f'n thing, which is maybe good because they LOSE MONEY every second it actually operates.

But I'm ignoring the benefit: much like solar-cell installations, windmills radiate scientific brain-energy from the roof into the students below. This stimulates their academic performance ... nahhhh it's all HORSESH!T!

I can imagine that would be a tough environment in which to keep your optimism.

I've been wrong before. Never can predict the fickleness of voters.

But I know at least one of the Big 3 gave their employees $2k bonuses at the end of the 2nd QTR this year... since I work at one and received mine. I imagine many other Michigan businesses did the same.

Michigan is also a State where there are a lot of hunters who are not so keen on politicians who are anti-2A.

So with the economy doing well and one political party wanting to take away Constitutional rights, I just don't see what Democrats have to run on. Well, other than 'i am woman, hear me roar'. (Since Schuette's opponent is a woman).

It will likely come down to turnout, as it almost always does. President Trump has been in full support of Schuette and James since early in their campaigns. And I am sure he will give them some shoutouts, maybe even campaign for them closer to the election.

So we'll see. Cautiously optimistic...

Not going to do it and not going to do that to my kids.Fortunately, there are are still rational parents that understand this. The kids we do invite over or take with us somewhere always tell their parents what a great time they had and always want to come back.

They discuss putting one up, all the kids and teachers are raving for it, they find some sucker to "partner financially" with, they ignore the warnings from engineers that it's a money-losing project, up it goes, it breaks within a couple years, they can't find parts for the f'n thing, which is maybe good because they LOSE MONEY every second it actually operates.

This is how you got Trump, you dumbass bitches.

They're still not paying any attention to the deplorables outside the bubble. This must've been what it was like right before the French Revolution. Similar to the Russian Revolution but they had a lot more warning signs something seriously wrong was happening although in the end they refused to make the necessary correctives and still went down in flames.

303 My sister, who I told you all about in an earlier comment upstairs? Seems to always have both 'good' kids and 'bad' kids every year.

One of her traditions every spring is to take her classroom on the 2-mile hike at the not-too-far-away Long Beach Nature Center, which features (among a lot of other neat stuff) a complete lake and river system. The trails both start and stop near one of the rivers.

Anyway, one year she turned around... just in time to catch one of her bully kids pushing another kid right into the stream.

Thank God the victim kid wasn't hurt, but he had OLD near-ruined shoes already. My sister had to call my mom, who had to immediately rush out to Walmart, buy the kid a new pair of shoes, and drop them off for my sister at the location. Good grief.

When I was a teenager, our travel hockey team did a billet tournament with a team from Mississauga, ON, just outside Toronto.

One four day weekend we'd go up and the players would live with a player from the other teams family and go around Toronto, in between scheduled games. The parents would stay at a hotel and mingle on their own.

A couple weeks later they'd come down to Pittsburgh and the same would occur.

This was in the early 90's.

I can't see that working out in any circumstance today.

Stephen Miller (redsteeze) on Twitter twatted at some Democrat female candidate (can't remember her name) recently about her claim on both her website and in interviews that she was an immigrant.

She replied that anyone who has run a busy campaign knows that candidates don't have time to do their own copy on their websites and or approve everything their staff puts on there, etc etc, blah etc.

It got me thinking... okay, so we know that Senators and Congressmen don't write laws and don't read laws and don't do much of anything. And now we find out that candidates for those offices don't write or read or approve the statements on their own websites. (Apparently, or she flat out lied about not approving the immigrant statement).

So... what exactly do Senators and Congressmen do?

It is LONG past time to bring in the Bobs and start asking every single one of the Senators, Congressmen and all their staff members "So what would you say... you DO here?" And then have a very large purge of all the unnecessary Tom Smykowskis...

See, that's the difference between Calif and Wash.

Our bird choppers were placed in strategic parts of the Cascade mountain passes, where the birds transverse, so to maximize the bird killing fields. Thousands of birds are killed each year. They are all running 24/7, slaughtering our feathered friends without mercy.

So because the opposition to the bird choppers was so high, even when the Seattle Times and other papers generally ignore the issue, so they passed a law forbidding trespassing around the bird choppers, so nobody can count the dead carcasses.
And it goes on to this day. Because green, you know.
But even crazier? My computer, TV, refrigerator, and radio cannot, to this day, tell any difference between the electricity from coal plants, hydroelectric dams, or bird choppers.

Posted by: Ladyl at August 26, 2018 10:47 PM (TdMsT)

----------

Worst flight I ever had was a short hop from Orlando to Atlanta right after Hurricane Andrew. Atl was getting the after storms.

We came in on approach as normal. At about 30' off the runway, we caught a serious wind shear. Plane came down on the right side and blew the right and front tires out, the slammed down on the left side and blew those too.

Captain actually accelerated ground speed and got us in the grass between runways using left engine and rudder.

Passengers were bitching. I stood up and said "This pilot just saved our lives, you phuching idiots!".

381 The last picture is only half-original. Clement of Alexandria, one of the Fathers of the Church, says that in one of the seaside towns of the ancient Mediterranean, prostitutes would advertise discreetly by walking on the beach wearing sandals that printed "follow me" (AKOLOUTHI MOI in Greek) on the sand. Beer was considered foreign (German) and barbarous, but wine was no doubt included for an extra fee.

382 Am I the only one who is sometimes distressed by the TV industry's recent selling point of shows being "addictive" or how you can "binge" as much as you want? I am fully aware that this is the pot calling the kettle black in my case, but what happened to moderation? Moderation was rarely a selling tool, but they didn't outright embrace excess in such crude terms.

383 Also, if you look it up on You Tube, there's a spoof of 1950s educational films on, proper social etiquette at "Facebook, the Electronic Friendship Generator."

I wish they had included a clip of Mark Zuckerberg talking to the audience, with his voice obviously/badly dubbed by a very 1950s-masculine-sounding actor. IMHO that would have been hilarious. (Because the real Zuckerberg still sounds like an awkward 14-year-old, you see...)

405 @122 I mean I don't even know how to even discuss that. My daughter is supposed to be left in public schools to raise their performance? Does that even bear the slightest resemblance to logic?
-------------------------

Part of the problem with public schools these days is that so many of the kids in them are out of control. Parents pulling out good kids to send them to other schools means that there's a higher proportion of disruptive kids left behind in the school, which makes the kids even more unmanageable and difficult to teach. So in essence, pulling your daughter out makes it more difficult for the remaining good students to learn.

I suspect that's the way the school districts see it.

435 @417 I have a question: how many disruptive students does it take to make a classroom unmanageable?

Answer: one.
---------------------

It depends on how disruptive. Low levels of disruption can be worked around. The problem with having multiple disruptive kids is that not only are each of them adding to the total level of disruption, but they tend to encourage each other to be more and more disruptive.

I know you are being tongue in cheek, but I think that was more or less the suggestion.

Had I been having a discussion with this lady in a logical debate forum, the obvious follow up to her supposition would have been to ask if her statement basically devalued the role of the teacher.

If it is the student quality that dictates the outcome, than essentially the quality of the instructor has no real bearing on the end results.

Posted by: Bitter Clinger at August 26, 2018 11:33 PM (JJ9bx)

439 Part of the problem with public schools these days is that so many of the kids in them are out of control. Parents pulling out good kids to send them to other schools means that there's a higher proportion of disruptive kids left behind in the school, which makes the kids even more unmanageable and difficult to teach. So in essence, pulling your daughter out makes it more difficult for the remaining good students to learn.

I suspect that's the way the school districts see it.

It's the University of California's reasoning.

1. Admit a buttload of unqualified black and brown students who weren't able to take up their places offered at UC because they couldn't pass the high school exit exam after repeated tries (that "sit, stay, bark" part was really tough).* Sign 'em up for the various intellectual sandbox minors (Grievance Studies, sociology, etc.).

2. Give those students free tuition. Hell, just put it on the taxpayers' tab.

3. Admit a buttload of talented Asian students to study the serious subjects (STEM), so as not to make a UC diploma into a joke. Ideally admit a bunch of overseas Asian students who will pay whopping great out of state/country fees.

4. Talk about the proportion of your students who can actually read and write, ignoring group #1.

*Seriously, the high school exit exam - now abolished - required only 10th grade English and 8th gradep math. It was administered in the sophomore year, so the retards in question had THREE shots at passing it, but were unsuccessful, so clearly they were UC material. My kids thought it was laughably easy.

444 So, I bought a truck today. 2002 Ford F150 crew cab 4X4, for $800. Kicker is, the transmission is bad, and slips in third gear. Probably a bad direct drive clutch. It had 4 new tires on it, so I am basically getting it for the value of the tires. Engine runs fine, and the a/c blows cold. Interior is very nice, as is the body, except for very superficial damage to left side; looks like guy maybe hit the ditch in the snow. Doesn't prevent either left-side door from working as it should.

And I spent a couple of hours of quality time with the stick welder, and built a storage dolly for a small-block Chevy engine I have here. Built the dolly (with casters), picked up the whole shebang with the tractor, and set it in my storage bin (an old truck van body). The new-built dolly rolled real easy across the floor, too.

One student who challenges or credibly threatens the teacher for maintaining order suffices to disrupt the class permanently. Because now there is a power struggle. No teacher can deal with that. Women are too weak, and men aren't permitted to get physical.

All of the passengers chortled as one. Some even guffawed. And I was not alone in outright Laughing Out Loud.

Her pacing, phrasing, Southern Accent and comic timing were all PERFECT for the moment.

Plus, she was a hot redhead, to boot. Every man on that plane paid VERY close attention to her safety briefing, too!

Fair enough. But put a group of students with "mildly obnoxious behavior" together, and you increase the chance that they're going to start egging each other on to increasingly obnoxious types of behavior until you get something that actually is disruptive.

Can't do that in public schools.

One of the worst things they did in my state (perhaps in every state?) in this regards was something called "mainstreaming".

Apparently some parent(s) brought complaints that children with mental handicaps were being discriminated against by isolating them from the rest of the student population.

So then kids that were autistic were placed in normal classes and in many cases were very disruptive.

One teacher used to tell me stories about a 16 year old kid that would strip down to his underwear in class and he would have to call someone in to handle him. Next day....same story. He said he spent at least 15 minutes of every class dealing with the kid.

529 Can't do that in public schools. You can't lay a finger on a student except *maybe* (and I emphasize the "maybe" there because you might get in trouble anyway depending on the district) in self-defense. And the students know it. So you can yell at them until you're blue in the face, and some of them will continue to ignore you.
Posted by: junior at August 26, 2018 11:44 PM (/gwbx)


Exactly the problem. You don't need to lay a finger on a student; you just need the student to worry that you MIGHT lay a finger on him, and that if you do, he'll be very sorry indeed.

The time to do that is, of course, in grade school, where it would be no contest, and you've set the pattern. By the time they're in high school, and equally formidable physically, the implicit threat no longer works.

My understanding is that breast surgery is often covered by insurance because it's seen as helpful for the mental health of the patient after a mastectomy. Without that... I suspect some cover it anyway.

537 NOW WITH GPS. Three Square Market (32M) is no longer content to simply microchip its employees. The Wisconsin-based company now want to put trackable implants into people with dementia.

Why would anyone want to make this an implant for someone with dementia rather than just make it wearable? That seems pretty silly.

Or, maybe they're thinking about just pulling demented people off the street, taking them to seedy hotel rooms, and implanting these trackers? It's almost the perfect crime. The demented person won't remember anything, and even if they did no one would believe them, anyway.

Then, they put out an app where you get to pick your demented player and it becomes something like that stupid pokemon game people played for a couple of months. Big, fast cash, there. And with the added benefit that demented people are being looked after by the players. Win-win!! For the chillen oldies!!!!

See, that's the difference between Calif and Wash.

Our bird choppers were placed in strategic parts of the Cascade mountain passes, where the birds transverse, so to maximize the bird killing fields. Thousands of birds are killed each year. They are all running 24/7, slaughtering our feathered friends without mercy.

So because the opposition to the bird choppers was so high, even when the Seattle Times and other papers generally ignore the issue, so they passed a law forbidding trespassing around the bird choppers, so nobody can count the dead carcasses.
And it goes on to this day. Because green, you know.
But even crazier? My computer, TV, refrigerator, and radio cannot, to this day, tell any difference between the electricity from coal plants, hydroelectric dams, or bird choppers.

And that's out of 29 total. The article also said that the ideological split when the article was written was 16-6. Getting all seven picks (ignoring the eighth, since I don't know the details on it) would get us 16-13. Still bad, but a lot better than it is right now.

Have you cleaned out the charging ports on the devices using a toothpick or the end of a paperclip or blow it out with some canned air? Mine was always being a pain to charge and having to fight with the charger and I finally cleaned the port and it had accumulated a lot of pocket lint that was preventing a good charger connection.

571 > My iPhone 6plus and iPad pro don't wanna charge despite having new cords

Get a strong light and GENTLY root around in the charging socket with a wooden toothpick or similar (not anything metal) while inspecting.

You'll be surprised how much pocket lint can collect in there. Common cause of failure to charge.

If it charges, but the battery goes dead quickly, it's a sign of needing a new battery, but if it won't charge at all, it's worth checking for crud in the socket.

I remember I once ruined a pair of wire cutters on some stainless steel MIG wire I was using.

This was an old pair of Ideal strippers with a cutting attachment. It would cut mild steel wire fine, but the stainless nicked it.

Some harder dykes cut it well. I remember trying to cut some spring steel wire that had wrapped around a mower blade, and the hardest dykes I had didn't want to nick it.

My youngest sister, Michelle, is a first-grade school teacher at one of the worst-performing elementary schools...

If you ask her, she'll happily tell you that there's tons wrong with how classrooms, schools and districts are being run. And no, it isn't all "not enough money" or "it's all the parents' fault," although those *do* come into play.

Posted by: qdpsteve

A close friend was an excellent high school math teacher who was known for getting the best out of challenging students. She always said that the kids generally perform up to the level of the parent's expectations. Involved parents = kids do the work and perform well, parents don't care = kids get the message that education is not important and goof off.

She took early retirement- not because of the kids - but because of the retirement of the hard line, discipline enforcing traditional type principal, and the change to the new style, young, wants to be the kids' buddy, won't enforce the rules or back up the teacher's discipline new guy. No rules or consequences = kids go wild and teachers end up breaking up fights instead of teaching. Says it is happening everywhere and the kids are suffering. She is going back to private tutoring where the parents care and she can actually teach and guide thr kids to reach their full potential like in the old days.

I was gifted a "Henley" style shirt (Hang Ten brand, IIRC), eons ago.

Wore it once. Felt like the ultimate dork. (this was pre-Croc days) Never wore it again.

Fucker got all the "royalty" he'll ever get from me, save for buying a new(er) copy of Greatest Hits, when the old one gets unplayably scratched, again.

678 Well, I don't know about being calm in the ER. When I took DH in last Thursday evening, he went in stat. Probably should have called an ambulance, but that's hindsight. Trouble breathing does wonders to get you all the attention you'd ever need.

Of course, they did an excellent job with him.

Meanwhile, as I was taking the boy to the cafeteria to get him dinner and NOT let him get scared, they announced his cubicle in the ER and STAT over the speaker system, hospital wide.

Well, shit.

I covered it well with the boy, and he never did freak out.

DH is home and fine, if shaky. If his breathing doesn't improve tomorrow, it's back to the doc.

I actually stopped by tonight to take my mind off my latest phone call with *my* mom, about twenty minutes ago. She didn't realize tonight was Sunday. She complained about being "ill" over the weekend. She mentioned cancelling tomorrow's laser eye surgery (for cataract-type ish), after complaining for months that she needed to get her eyes fixed. She recently refused to deal with an estate planner I found, who'd seemed like the answer to a prayer.

I've been trying to find a caretakers' support group. Harder than it sounds. I face my failure as her "support", at least twice a day.

Prayer, I guess. And screaming into the void.

686 Recipe for the day: I have no idea what it's called

Get a nice 2 or 3 pound hunk of cow, you don't have to go mega expensive but the less fat and gristle it has on it the better. Cut that hunk of cow up into 1 inch cubes.
Mix a can of red wine with a can of Campbells french onion soup in a crock pot. Stir in a couple of tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce in there and add the cow. Add in 8 to 10 oz of 'shrooms, too, if you like (I like the baby bellas). Cook on low for 4 to 5 hours.
Crank that crock pot up on high for about 15 minutes. In the meantime mix 3 tablespoons of corn starch into a quarter cup of water. Stir that in the now-bubbling beef and continue to cook on high, stirring occasionally, until the gravy reaches the consistency you like. Serve it over rice or pasta. I have served it over farro as well and it was good that way, too.

Back in '04, I drove myself to UTMB (University of Texas Medical Branch, a major teaching hospital, churning out M.D.s and R.N.s), here in Galveston.

KNEW I had at least a "blood pressure" problem, felt I was maybe on the verge of a heart attack.

Twenty seconds later, I'm flat on a gurney.

Minute later, I recorded the 3rd highest BP they'd ever seen there, and the ONLY one "walking".

20 hrs later, discharged with BP meds, and a clear bill of health, otherwise.

Still on BP meds. Ticker exam still clean as always.

I took some photos of my coolest gun, thinking it might make a good mystery gun. Somehow I ended up with my granddad's Winchester model 1890 .22 W.R.F. (.22 Special we always called it). Hexagonal barrel, tube magazine, pump action. It fires a .22 caliber round but higher powered and longer shell casing the .22 LR. Grandpa used it for deer hunting (family lore has it.) It hasn't been fired in probably 20 years. I probably should have a gunsmith check it out for safety, but I did find ammo for it.

Also, I use Rennaisance Wax on the stocks and metal. The guns show honest use but not a speck of rust.

611 Calm Mentor, my stepson once nailed his leather work glove to his hand with a pneumatic nailer. We took him to the ER, thinking they might be impressed by the sight of the nail through glove and hand and get him in quickly.

Posted by: creeper at August 27, 2018 12:34 AM (RnzeK)

When I nailed my hand with a 10p nailer, the emergency room didn't have a tool to cut the nail head to allow removal. The hospital maintenance crew donated a heavy duty diagonal cutter to chop it off. ER staff said they probably would keep it. Just in case.

739 Seems that the left is getting pretty heavily invested in the idea that McCain nominating Sarah Palin as his VP gave us Trump. Proving, once again, they truly have no idea how we got Trump.

740 They definitely have no idea how they got Trump.
And Trump is the only thing between them and us.

Trump stands between us and them. I have not figured out how we settle this peacefully. They'd better hope we do.

744 David Katz, a Baltimore Madden game champ is the shooter, the feds seal up his home.
Aren't they supposed to have the media come in and besides photo everything take souvenirs?

Posted by: Skip at August 27, 2018 04:41 AM (lxZ71)

745 I wonder what a Madden champ's motivation would be to be a mass shooter? I don't play that, in fact I am done with the NFL.

746 "Among some of the items stolen from the cruiser were two loaded magazines, a gas mask, Taser, a ballistic helmet, and rifle clips."

I like a cop that carries an M1 Garand! Or was it a Nazi cop with a Mauser 98k?

747 Everyone is saying video gaming is big business and lots of prize money but obviously it wasn't a robbery. So it seems its down to " sore loser "

748 Last video game for me was centipede or pacman, maybe asteroids and those I could count total times for all three on these two hands. I have to admit the use and care of firearms is much more useful and a lot more fun.

753 Good Morning. A delightful 78 degrees with 72 percent humidity here this AM in No Ill.

I would have to agree with that. Palin showed what a Go Along to Get Along guy McCain was. Too bad the lefties had to attack a woman so vehemently

757 I met the new neighbors this weekend. Their German Shepard bit me mid-thigh as I was walking in the opposite direction. No broken skin, but bruises from the bit are on both sides. Could have been a bad time, but something in my cargo pocket helped keep the force down.

They bought the most expensive house in the county, 3 stories and a cupola, with an elevator, which overlooks our house. She is a new Dean at the local University, and he retired from teaching physics to support her career. Nice people, who have not socialized their dog.

For sure. And they really don't have any idea of what comes after Trump, in the even they manage to hound him from office.

About half of them seem to have the idea that if Trump is impeached, Hillary! somehow would then become President.

763 On Sunday morning Trump! had tweeted out a McCain "too bad" type of tweet. Nothing gushy. By Sunday afternoon that tweet disappeared. What happened to it?
