Overnight Open Thread (09-11-2018 )

The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.
-- George Washington
I was born an American; I will live an American; I shall die an American
-- Daniel Webster
When an American says that he loves his country, he...means that he loves an inner air, an inner light in which freedom lives and in which a man can draw a breath of self-respect.
-- Adlai Ewing Stevenson

I'm not sure that it is possible to reform the TSA, because it has already become entrenched in the federal bureaucracy, but I'm willing to listen...

TSA Needs Reform. Here's What My Bill Would Change.

However, as it stands, the TSA does not currently include the cost of benefits guaranteed to federal employees, which could account for as much as 10 percent of the total amount the TSA pays its employees for these services. This bill would change that.

Additionally, after 17 years' experience with the TSA, we've come to see many of its inefficiencies. While there is reason to believe the TSA has improved on its abysmal 5 percent success rate at detecting credible threat, there is obviously room for growth.


Eh...maybe. I have seen other countries' security screening, and some of those seem to do it quite well with far fewer employees. Airport security is simple and straightforward, why we have turned it into theater is beyond me.

My Twitter Feed
In case any of you actually read it, I have decided to be combative and inflammatory, and I am curious how long it will take for Twitter to marginalize me or just cancel my account. I am already blocked by a surprising number of people on the left...people with whom I have had no interaction. Why, it's almost as if they are keeping lists!

99 Hey everybody.

CBD, funny you posted "The Weight" tonight. I just got the 50th anniversary remastered of Music From Big Pink.

Sounds pretty good. Of course though, they did some minor remixing to the song.

Posted by: qdpsteve at September 11, 2018 10:20 PM (feaxc)

100 Ladyl.... prayers up for your Dad, of course.

Mostly for you, though. Your Dad seems at peace as to his end, but it is his end. You and yours will continue, of course.

And so it is for you that I pray peace, strength, calmness and a lightness of heart in the darkest of times.

In Jesus Name

Amen

111 On the morning of Sept 11, my radio went off at 5:55 am on the West Coast, but there was no rock'n roll music, just the DJ talking. And talking. There was no music, only about watching something on TV, and mentioned "the Tower" a few times when I was waking up.

I turned on the TV and watched the first tower burning, then a few minutes later, the second tower. There was now no doubt we were under attack.


I woke up the wife, she immediately wanted to know why the TV was on in our bedroom. I just said "watch".

My 5 year old woke up, hearing the noise coming from Mom and Dad's room, and walked in. I sat up, and told him, "you are watching history, remember this day". We watched it together for nearly an hour.

He is 22 and told me today that he remembers that morning well.

158 So that "in-depth" and truly brilliant analysis takes me back to my track and field/cross country days for a certain Div I northeastern college which may or may not have been located in Massachusetts (don't want to give away too much ID material). When the freshman would come in and ask for tips on racing we would always, in a very eager and "I'm letting you in on a big secret" voice off this insightful advice:
Go out really strong, pick it up in the middle, sprint it in at the end. And most importantly . . . run faster than everyone else.

For a time it was believed that the terrorists were flying into tall buildings in other major cities. At Broad and High, all traffic was stopped dead.

17 years out, and the rest of our lives to go.

In Remembrance, I have this link to a story about Rick Rescorla.
Rick was a real hero. Born in the UK, fought in Rhodesia. Came to America,and joined the Army. He was a lieutenant at the Ia Drang valley fight (We Were Soldiers Once...And Young).

He had a hard life sometimes, but lived on.

His last day was Sept 11, 2001. It might have been his best day. He saved the lives of thousands of people at Dean Witter.

The caulking repair I did on the 3rd bedroom window on Friday seems to have done the trick... nary a drop, and the windowsill inside remains bone dry.

Oh, and laid in 20 gal. of generator fuel, too.

250 "Mr. President:

The independence of the United States is not only more precious to ourselves but to the world than any single possession. Look at the United States today. We have made mistakes in the past. We have had shortcomings. We shall make mistakes in the future and fall short of our own best hopes. But none the less is there any country today on the face of the earth which can compare with this in ordered liberty, in peace, and in the largest freedom? I feel that I can say this without being accused of undue boastfulness, for it is the simple fact, and in making this treaty and taking on these obligations all that we do is in a spirit of unselfishness and in a desire for the good of mankind. But it is well to remember that we are dealing with nations every one of which has a direct individual interest to serve, and there is grave danger in an unshared idealism. Contrast the United States with any country on the face of the earth today and ask yourself whether the situation of the United States is not the best to be found. I will go as far as anyone in world service, but the first step to world service is the maintenance of the United States.

"I have always loved one flag and I cannot share that devotion with a mongrel banner created for a League.

You may call me selfish if you will, conservative or reactionary, or use any other harsh adjective you see fit to apply, but an American I was born, an American I have remained all my life. I can never be anything else but an American, and I must think of the United States first, and when I think of the United States first in an arrangement like this I am thinking of what is best for the world, for if the United States fails, the best hopes of mankind fail with it. I have never had but one allegiance--I cannot divide it now. I have loved but one flag and I cannot share that devotion and give affection to the mongrel banner invented for a league. Internationalism, illustrated by the Bolshevik and by the men to whom all countries are alike provided they can make money out of them, is to me repulsive. National I must remain, and in that way I like all other Americans can render the amplest service to the world. The United States is the world's best hope, but if you fetter her in the interests and quarrels of other nations, if you tangle her in the intrigues of Europe, you will destroy her power for good and endanger her very existence. Leave her to march freely through the centuries to come as in the years that have gone. Strong, generous, and confident, she has nobly served mankind. Beware how you trifle with your marvelous inheritance, this great land of ordered liberty, for if we stumble and fall freedom and civilization everywhere will go down in ruin. ..."--Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, Sr. (R-MA) speaks out against the League of Nations, Washington, D.C., August 12, 1919.

You know, Hawaiian judges arent the only ones wiping their asses with the constitution. We want some credit too.

Posted by: 9th Circuit, WA State Supreme Court at September 11, 2018 10:42 PM (6ATfQ)

There is a new anti-gun initiative on the Wash state fall ballot, I-1639. Paid signature gatherers, paid for by the few millionaires who wrote big checks, used forms that were confusing and against the law how they were laid out. They used them anyway. A suit was filed and the judge threw out the form and the initiative because of the obvious faulty form. So too late for the November election, that the anti-2A millionaires had already funded.

The Wash State Supreme Court re-instated the initiative, and ignored the confusing layout, and the rules.

The initiative is obviously unconstitutional to the Heller decision, and the Wash state Constitution, Article 24. Again ignored by the Leftist anti-Constitutional court. It is the Globalists second stab at the rights of WA state citizens, similar to the CT, CA, etc gun grabber laws.

Because in the Bluest of Blue states, it is so important to restrict guns that breaking initiative laws are no big deal. That's how we roll around here. And now the Leftist press will take it from here. That is why I laughed and copied the handle above.

Kavanaugh can't get on board soon enough.

Read a little on the history of hurricane naming. The system of female-only names existed from 1953-1979.

Feminists and feminist meteorologists were the ones that pushed the change.

Weathermen used to have fun making sexist comments about hurricanes. Ah, the good ol' days.

Roxcy Bolton was one of feminists who campaigned hard against it.

Her obituary writer managed to get in a little joke, describing her as "tempestuous Florida feminist".

I wrote something sorta-similar on 9/17/01.

What was damaged? Not America but the world. Every government, every business in the world was tied in to those towers which fell. It was truly a World Trade Center. It was an attack upon the World.

Who was killed in the attack? When the toll is told, we will find that people who died were natively from or descended from every nation, every walk of life, every religion in the world. It was an attack upon Humanity.

I'll stand by that. Not to support asshole Salon writer, of course. Just that, it was A'holes v Civilization, really.

But otherwise...that's just a wee bit too lose to playing Prophetic Patty-Cake Russian Roulette with the Universe!

329 Ladyl - my sincerest condolences on your father's decline. I hope you and your family get through this as well as you can, together. I'm not a praying person, but I do wish you and yours the best.

In other depressing news, Woodward's little F.U. to sanity arrived at work today. We got to put some copies out for people to check out right away! And boy, were they going out the door fast. Sigh. I had to endure a lot of comments about how awful Trump is, without reacting. All. Day. Long. Trust me - if people knew how I voted, I would literally be shunned by pretty much everyone there. And I like what I do. So I keep my mouth shut about politics at work, unless I absolutely can't help myself and have to "politely" interject some facts here and there. Not that that does anything, but I do have to try occasionally.

"Progressive" was founded by Peter Lewis, a Soros acolyte, hence the name of his company, one with which I will never do business.

Posted by: mindful webworker and the spies everywhere at September 11, 2018 11:20 PM (Yf6eY)


Yes.

What you'll do is set up an encrypted tunnel using your computer's network settings, and when you enable the VPN, all of your traffic to the outside world - assuming you only have the one ethernet or wifi interface - should be routed through that tunnel. So, your ISP and any routers in between you and the VPN provider can see that encrypted traffic is moving from your address to the VPN provider's systems, and that's all. The packet headers that contain the actual destination will be encrypted along the way, so nobody can see what they contain or where their real destination is.

Actors/actresses age out of, or price themselves out of, or have acting ambitions beyond even big paying, long-running campaigns.

420 So,I've been watching The Handmaid's Tale. It's not bad. I still don't quite get how the whole country goes from zero to theocracy in nothing flat. I wish they would just leave that shit alone. "Tell, don't show" would be more effective in this case.

Overall it's not a bad show. The characters don't seem to have much agency and are just pawns of the writers. That's not a bad thing, the plot is fairly interesting. It's worth watching. Big fan of Elisabeth Moss and her ample bosoms.

The anime Cells At Workmis suuuuuper kawaii! Every episode needs more of the platelets.

498
The wind power output of an average hurricane is about 1.5TW. That's about ~1/2 of the total electrical power generation capacity of the whole planet.

But that's just a smidge of the total power. That number (and there is uncertainty here) is about 600TW, which is, well, a YUGE number. I'm not sure where they get that number. It would mean wind power is less than 1% of the total power output.

504 But that's just a smidge of the total power. That number (and there is uncertainty here) is about 600TW, which is, well, a YUGE number. I'm not sure where they get that number. It would mean wind power is less than 1% of the total power output.

509 The wind power output of an average hurricane is about 1.5TW. That's about ~1/2 of the total electrical power generation capacity of the whole planet.

But that's just a smidge of the total power. That number (and there is uncertainty here) is about 600TW, which is, well, a YUGE number. I'm not sure where they get that number. It would mean wind power is less than 1% of the total power output.

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

Just smoking over that, that 600TW figure comes from the latent heat of condensation, when the water vapor condenses in the "engine". "A very inefficient heat engine". The vast majority of this energy just gets expended into the upper atmosphere, it says.

It seems a ballpark of 150,000 nuclear weapons have been produced since 1945.......

Over course, they vary in payload.....The Tsar Bomba was a 50megaton weapon, with 100 megaton potential for example....

But, if the standard is generalized......then ALL THE NUKES EVER PRODUCED would be only equivalent to 15 large sized Hurricanes.

Driving down Highway 1 today through Pacifica, I see a kid--a young teen--standing at the side of the road. He was holding a large American flag. Not waving it, not doing anything to attract attention. Just resting the butt of the flagpole against his hip, holding the pole at a 45 deg. angle. I don't know how long he had been there, or for how long he remained after I passed him. I'd imagine he was part of a group taking shifts.

Anyway, gave me a little hope for the future, even in this liberal hellhole they call the Bay Area.

545 What you'll do is set up an encrypted tunnel using your computer's network settings, and when you enable the VPN, all of your traffic to the outside world - assuming you only have the one ethernet or wifi interface - should be routed through that tunnel. So, your ISP and any routers in between you and the VPN provider can see that encrypted traffic is moving from your address to the VPN provider's systems, and that's all. The packet headers that contain the actual destination will be encrypted along the way, so nobody can see what they contain or where their real destination is.

If you want your mind blown, consider LIGO's first detection of gravitational waves/radiation. It was from a merger of two black holes of around 30 solar masses apiece.

The power output in gravitational radiation was 3.6*10^49W.

That was greater than light output of the entire visible universe.

The Milky Way's total power output is a mere 10^36W.

An average gamma ray burst is 10^42W

So, even the sun is just a fart in a hurricane compared to some of this stuff in the universe.

There's also flooding due to the massive amounts of rain.

I think back to Hurricane Camille in '69. Hit the Gulf Coast but Richmond, VA had 'the flood of the Century' due to all the water dumped when it moved north and the mountain rivers of TN, NC, VA and WV couldn't handle all that water. The James River, when it gets to Richmond, is normally a pretty shallow river. If you've ever traveled I-95 just south of Richmond, the interstate crosses the James via a very high bridge. The floodwater crested over the roadway.

574 Publius if I read that right that is the solar output on the surface of Earth. My math is rusty, but the surface area of earth as compared to the surface area of a 1 AU radius Dysonsphere is about 0.00027 radians, so we are talking a rounding error at the 7th or 8th decimal for total solar output.

Still, 1% of total solar energy reaching earth? That would power at least two Al Gore mansions, right?

mojo?If money was no object which guitar would you have and what
hemi-muscle car would you be driving?

Posted by: choogle at September 12, 2018 12:45 AM (kAhxL)

They were magic. If money was no object, yeah I would have a korina V. I do have a few of those, but they were custom shop reissues. They got them pretty much nuts on, and I did put a pair of late 50's pickups in one to get the right sound of the vintage ones. The others are set up for metal. Damn close enough to where I don't miss having an original. I played somewhere around 10 originals and some were better than others. But yeah there is something in those guitars. Its mostly the wood really, African white limba, also known as Korina. Kinda like mahogany, but lighter in color and more airy sounding, couple that with the actual design of the guitar and its a perfect storm. All frets are clear of the body, so fret access is off the charts.

Hemi car? Roadrunner, although I would take any. lol

589 One thing that I would have not predicted on 9/11 is that the Muslim population of the United States would have roughly doubled since then, and that there would be protests against any attempt to limit immigration from Muslim countries prone to terrorism.

Osama bin Laden, in one of his interviews post-9/11, justified the attacks by saying that interest in Islam had increased in the Netherlands since the attacks.

I thought: "Islam? The Netherlands? The guy is really nuts, isn't he? What on earth is he talking about?"

Sounds as if Osama knew what he was doing - just on a longer time scale.

I stay out of it because I'm not real wide genre wise and really have nothing to offer outside of my genre. I know metal and classical, and not much of anything else. What I mean by innovators are the players that have some unique thing they bring to their genre, or a very unique style that changed the course of music, or spawned a new genre. It don't have to be complex, just very unique. One example would be Chuck Berry. He had a slightly distorted sound very early in music, and he played a style of chord thats used a shit ton in metal. When you think of the time period he did that shit in it was pretty damn innovative. I don't really listen to chuck berry, because most of it all sounds the same, but those metal style 2 finger chords and the slightly ballsy sound was pretty original for the time. Miles ahead of a lot of stuff going on the 50's. I guess its possible that somebody did it before him and he just did it bigger, louder, and faster, but he's one example.

The opposite though, if you opt for the easy way. You're here to Guitars and Guitar Gods, as I am to certain Celebrity Shooters and Gun Blogosphere Noteables.

I *LOVE* serioius guitarousity. And never had the chance to dive into the fray. Mom insisted that I take "trumpet" in band. First chair, but I lasted only two years.

At 60...do you think I could still learn to even strum or pick out music to soothe my soul?

You have no idea of what you've bitten off to chew.

I will work to acquire the general purpose guitar which you suggest. Much better than a mere beginner's guitar, much less than that of even a coffee-house pretender.

Acoustic. Steel, not nylon. I want to have to LEARN to play, not play at learning.

Only caveat. Galveston climate. I would imagine that this is not a guitar friendly environment, so....Ovation, or ????

Finally, one thing to encourage you. I type at a fair rate, and woodwork with a full, ten finger dexterity. (and if you don't woodwork, this is lost on you.)

Context? Mason Williams original "Classical Gas". That'd be my picking ideal.

Rhythm? My Sweet Lord, as plagiarized by Harrison.

I have a broad yet ignorant sweep of musical tastes, otherwise. I'm not looking to be ANY kind of guitar hero. But I'd not mind strumming on the porch, or being able to join some friends to blend in.

That's all I'd ask.

(why am I seeing Berzerker berzerking wildly towards the hills?)

Good to see you.

Short answer: No.

Leaders in Baghdad have a long history of pissing off larger powers and getting stomped to the ground. The Mongol Horde did quite a bit of damage when provoked. A good book is The Devil's Horsemen: The Mongol Invasion of Europe.

President Obama's withdrawal from Iraq made all the sacrifices of the US and allies for naught.

He lost a won war. You can criticize the execution of the conflict. We all do. You can criticize the strategic decisions. We do that too.

But President Obama did a massive amount of damage to lives in the Middle East. He, much more than the President's before him, created unneeded suffering on a sub-continental scale.

Compare and Contrast. If you are intellectually honest, which I doubt you can even attempt to be.

We were over at Squadron Saturday night, and on the stanchion at the top of the ladder was a pop-riveted metal plate about 2.5 by 2.5 inches square. Rather distinctive vee-shaped pattern of raised metal tabs on it, as if to accept and hold an object with a corresponding vee shaped bracket on a bulkhead or other vertical surface.

Major hurricane is a term utilized by the National Hurricane Center for hurricanes that reach maximum sustained 1-minute surface winds of at least 50 m/s (96 kt, 111 mph). This is the equivalent of category 3, 4 and 5 on the Saffir-Simpson scale.

767 Hurricanes are an amazing thing - awesome in their power - horrifying in their destructive capabilities. Lived through a few in my expat days in Bermuda - including one that tore off our stone tiled porch roof (tossed the 20 lb tile blocks like they were poker chips) as we sat and watched. It also picked up an extra large gas grill, with full gas containers, flung it on its side and then into the side of the house with such force that it bent the steel supports. A freight train sound that continued for almost 8 hours completed the effect.

The kids ( who grew up in the NY area) had always thought hurricanes were "fun" despite my explanations - after that - not so much.

Who's this "we" of which you speak, dingleberry?

This ass never talked about the lack of fathers or the need for self-respect and the downfalls of thug life. Ever talk to a black youngster who focuses on books or computers? You know, the ones who are ridiculed by their peers...

836 Permits to exercise my God-given and natural rights.

Yeah, that leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.



Yeah, you won't believe how naiive I was when I first moved to CT. I brought my MA pistol permit and said I'd like to transfer it.

You know, I've already had the background check and the training and the .....

Yeah. No.

The hardest part for me is the lack of instant gratification. It would have been easier to scrape up $200 earlier if it would lead to a prompt answer, but to cough it up for the privilege of waiting 3-4 months?

841 'Morning, Horde.

Just returned from the one-mile walk. My neighbor tells me the Corpse of Engineers has declared that picnic tables on docks in the lake are verboten.

The Corpse needs to quit messing with our lakes and do something about the pathetic shape of our locks and dams.
