17 Saw a good show on cable last night about Leningrad (St. Petersburg) during WWII. Apparently, Leningrad was cut off from the Communist Central Party during the war and they pretty much made their own decisions and ensured their own survival.

One man rose to the top of popularity in Leningrad because of his natural leadership abilities.

Once the Nazis were defeated, Stalin had him report to the Kremlin where he was tortured and shot to death.

What is the slash of light? It looks like a beacon from or a lighted spire on a skyscraper, but we don't get an Empire State Building until 1935, and not that in Leningrad.

I like it graphically, but it hurts my brain too much trying to make something literal of it.

they probably used the same tactic crooked Mueller and his mob use ... pretend they are just asking questions, maybe even praise their service.


"So good to see you General Flynn, could you help us out with a few of these details?" next thing Flynn knows he has to sell his house to cover legal fees, and then confess to a non-crime to keep Mueller's thugs from destroying his son.

Mueller learned from Stalin ... protect's his own (DeepState) and attacks the existential threat to their power (Trump).

63 Fascinating use of color and damn! you can feel the cold. This is rather Impressionistic compared to many of Aivazovsky's paintings which tend toward more realistic. His use of light in his marine paintings is especially effective and this one seems to be an outgrowth of that technique. His works are often very powerful. It is bothersome that he isn't better known.

90 It's one of my romantic dream vacations to travel across Russia on the Siberian Express. It's probably one of those things that's better in my head than in reality, though.

Agreed. I think the more romantic or exotic the fantasy is, the more disappointing the reality becomes. The movie playing in your head - the Siberian Express! Romance! Intrigue! Adventure! - conveniently ignores the realities of delays, surly service, bad food, substandard hygiene, rotten accommodations and unpleasant fellow travelers.

For example, I would love to go to the Vienna Opera Ball and dance with a princess, but if I ever did make it there, I know I'd be stuck alone at a table among snotty Europeans laughing at my ill-fitting rented tails, sweating, fat and incredibly unhappy watching beautiful duchesses, countesses and noble ladies sweeping across the room in fabulously expensive gowns.

Why pay money to be miserable when you can stay home?

It was Christmas Day evening / Boxing Day morning when they crossed the river / fought the Hessians. The point being regarding timing was that the Hessians would have overindulged themselves on Christmas revelry.

A bolder move in military history would be harder to find, IMHO.

******************************

Polls always have to be reweighted according to region and population and then have a turnout projection model factored in.

Take in pollsters who seem to be generally leftist biased and just can't help but put their fingers on the scales and the result are polls that are either psy-ops gaslighting bullshit or forever hopeful that the democratic turnout will fit their optimistic projections.

Muldoon, have you considered a paper on Moron neurology and brain anatomy?

For example, in the Moron anterior cingulate cortex, the mammary neurons receive axons from the subiculum, and the whole forms a neuronal circuit in the limbic system known as the Elbows circuit. The ACC is involved in conflict detection processes between ScoggDog zero and one determinations.

189 Muldoon, have you considered a paper on Moron neurology and brain anatomy?

For example, in the Moron anterior cingulate cortex, the mammary neurons receive axons from the subiculum, and the whole forms a neuronal circuit in the limbic system known as the Elbows circuit. The ACC is involved in conflict detection processes between ScoggDog zero and one determinations.

* The sun came up at 9:30 and was setting by 3:00.
*Half the employees came to work on snowmobiles.
* Cars had safety orange flags mounted to them so you could see cars coming at an intersection the snow was piled so high.
*Maintenence on the shipping docks was done there. Was horrified to see 18 wheeler service trucks loaded with equipment parked on the ice.

Back in my Army days in Alaska, we used frozen lakes as helicopter LZs all the time. Which could get dangerous, not from thin ice but from the ice getting slick from the melted water on top. Did a landing in Hueys once where the bird I was on slid forward as soon as the skids touched down. Had a blade strike on the tail rotor of the bird ahead. Really exciting, especially when pieces of the rotor came flying through the windscreen and laid out the crew chief. Luckily, he just ended up with cracked ribs.

Clearly I have no sense of scale here, so I'm just assuming, there's a point at which jeeps are safe, but trucks are not, and a point at which a single truck is safe, but a buttload of deuce and a half type trucks, attempting to supply a major city, would not.

Thus brings to mind my idea for Speed Skating and Dodging as an Olympic sport. The course would be a ten mile measured distance on a frozen lake. Two teams, three persons per team. One skater and two to man the mortar.

The goal Is to complete the course in the fastest time. After the start and the skaters are away, the mortar team members of each team are free to drop mortar rounds in the opposing skater's path.

The elimination rounds would be a bitch.

340 You know, there was some discussion yesterday about using a nuclear bomb to break up a hurricane, and we agreed it was probably futile. But what about detonating a line, or double line of them diagonally across its path, at about a thousand feet underwater? Bring up some cold bottom water, and starve it for energy. Might even divert it out to sea?
Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon


It would require a lot of energy to move that much water--more than a nuke can provide. Plus there's the question of how much energy would be imparted to the water in the form of heat...the summary of what I've seen about such things is "probably not".

342 The more carbon emissions rise in China and India, the more the US has to sacrifice to combat global climate change. That's what the Left says.

Posted by: Hadrian the Seventh


Absolutely! In fact, we should be paying "carbon credits" for all the carbon we produce.

And that money, after a suitable skim-off for the noble Leftists in charge, should be given to these poor, downtrodden nations.

So that they can get closer to a first-world existence, with all the energy demands and carbon-creation that entails.

...wait a minute, this is sounding like a scam to enrich Leftists and impoverish the USA, and not a way to reduce carbon at all!

I was wondering when someone would point that out. Even the Tsar Bomba is barely a wet fart compared to the energy in a hurricane. Probably you could knock out a tornado with one, but that's not a very good trade-off, is it?

always curious how one proposes to decrease the energy of a system by adding energy to it - hurricanes are the Earth's mechanism for absorbing excess heat from the tropics and transporting it to dissipate in the temperate zones. Adding heat is not the kind of thing that's going to make them go away.
