The horse is being drawn into that black hole in the upper left. 'Tis the stretching that accompanies that act which makes its head appear to be too small.

Paul, aware of this, is just trying to get as far away from both of them as he can.

28 Little known fact. Many middle eastern horses were deformed due to being diddled by muslims - bloody wogs.

29 This is an example of Mannerism. It was the era immediately following the High Renaissance. Their technique took the stylistic innovations of the Renaissance and toyed with them. They manipulated and experimented with the elements of style -- to see what they could do. Parmigianino is probably one of the bigger names of this period, although Michelangelo was still alive during its early years. Some scholars think M.'s "Last Judgement" is Mannerist, not Late Renaissance.

70 Chinese Horse from Lascaux Cave


That horse must have been tired after such a long trot.

One of my victories in No. 1 Son's early education was when he came home from school saying that his teacher said that cavemen only spoke in grunts.

I gave him a little theory on how long it took for both voiceboxes and the neural pathways of speech to evolve, but the clincher was when I pulled out my book on the Chauvet cave paintings.

I said "do you think people who talk in grunts could do that?" I got a bad reputation among the teachers for being the Dad of whom he kept saying "but my Dad says..."

Posted by: Bandersnatch at December 06, 2018 09:44 AM (fuK7c)

71 In Mannerism, things are supposed to look "off". Whether it's the perspective, proportions, colors, scale... The idea is to take the discoveries of the Renaissance for a "test drive". The styles is called mannerist, because the style had style (the Italian word "maniera") and finesse. There was a charm about it.

Posted by: J.J. Sefton at December 06, 2018 09:15 AM (/9p9e)


Willowed - I rarely do this.

Before the 14th ... the Supremems actually ruled in 1833, Baron vs Baltimore, that the Bill of Rights applied to the Fed only and not the States. In US vs Cruikshank, that was affirmed regarding 1A and 2A. My readings vary on when the slide to today's situation occurred ... but most point to a series of cases in the twenties.

So - No - I don't think the Fed was always the guarantee of the Bill of Rights. And as a resident of Indiana ... I don't want them true. My State reflects my views more than DC. Your's does not. I'm sure that sucks for you.

I said "do you think people who talk in grunts could do that?" I got a bad reputation among the teachers for being the Dad of whom he kept saying "but my Dad says..."

I almost did my Master's on Pre-historic art. (Looking back, I should have tho.) The complexity of cave paintings alone convinced me that the artists were no primitives. The cave paintings are carefully planned and executed. They designed and built scaffolding to paint them. They even took into account the sound effects and echos within the individual cave chambers to dictate the subject matter and its composition. These people were highly intelligent, just limited by their circumstances.

118 "So - No - I don't think the Fed was always the guarantee of the Bill of Rights. And as a resident of Indiana ... I don't want them true. My State reflects my views more than DC. Your's does not. I'm sure that sucks for you."

So, some legal trivia that still applies today. Yes, Barron v. Baltimore ruled that the Bill of Rights only applied to the Feds, not to the States. But that was in 1833, and in 1868 the 14th Amendment was passed, in part to overturn the ruling in Barron v. Baltimore. (those taking notes, this is how Congress overturns a SCOTUS decision they disagree with) The language which overturned Barron, and was held to apply the Bill of Rights to the States (although it took the SCOTUS 60 years of dragging its feet to admit this) is known as the Due Process Clause, which reads:
"No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of the Citizens of the United States, and no State shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of its laws."

you can see how a thing like Asset Forfeiture without a conviction directly violates that clause, no matter what level of government does it.

Posted by: nurse ratched at December 06, 2018 09:45 AM (PkVlr)


Nicely Nicely Johnson put it best --

I dreamed last night I got on the boat to heaven
And by some chance I had brought my dice along
And there I stood and I hollered "Someone fade me!"
But the passengers, they knew right from wrong.

For the people all said, "Sit down, sit down, you're rockin' the boat!"
People all said "Sit down, sit down you're rockin' the boat!
And the devil will drag you under
By the sharp lapel of your checkered coat,
Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down,
Sit down you're rockin' the boat!"

I sailed away on that little boat to heaven
And by some chance found a bottle in my fist.
And there I stood, nicely passin' out the whiskey
But the passengers were bound to resist.

For the people all said, "Beware! You're on a heavenly trip!"
People all said, "Beware! Beware, you'll scuttle the ship.
And the devil will drag you under
By the fancy tie 'round your wicked throat
Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down
Sit down, you're rockin' the boat!"

And as I laughed at those passengers to heaven (laughs)
(gasps!) A great big wave came and washed me over board!
And as I sank and I hollered, "Someone save me!"
That's the moment I woke up Thank the Lord!

And I said to myself, "Sit down, sit down, you're rockin' the boat!"
Said to myself, "Sit down, sit down, you're rockin' the boat!
And the devil will drag you under
With a soul so heavy you'd never float,
Sit down, sit down, sit down,
Sit down, sit down, sit down, you're rockin' the boat!"

"There was no mistaking the odd man out.

Wednesday's funeral service for former President George H. W. Bush served as a rare reunion of the remaining members of the president's club, but the front row banter among Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter and their spouses came to an uneasy end when President Donald Trump and wife Melania arrived.

The enounter was a real-time illustration of the uneasy ties between the current occupant of the White House and his predecessors, suggesting Trump as a member-in-name-only of the Oval Office fraternity....

Trump gave the two Obamas a handshake before taking his seat in Washington's National Cathedral without greeting the others. Hillalry Clinton nodded at Melania Trump but then stared straight ahead."

173 One of the interesting ways that helps to date the Chauvet cave is that there's evidence that a large landslide completely buried the main entrance to the cave about 25,000 years ago (roughly). It was only discovered in 1994 by cave explorers who were following a very narrow passage through a mountain, which led to it. That's also why it is so well preserved - it was almost completely sealed off from the elements and animals for 25,000 years.

Yeah, sometimes my brain picks up noises and integrates them into the dream. The wife had the tv on in 'her side' of the bedroom. Dogs were barking. Repeatedly, wouldn't shut up. In my dream I'm carrying a pick-ax and a step stool in my hands in order to get some network cable down from a shelf. Only things handy. As I'm walking along the dogs started biting me and I stabbed 'em with the pick ax.

"The ceremony's tributes at times stood as an unspoken counterpoint to Trump's leadership, as historian Jon Meacham euologized Bush by recounting his life's credo: 'Tell the truth, don't blame people, be strong, do your best, try hard, forgive, stay the course.' George W. Bush added of his father, 'He could tease and needle, but not out of malice.'"

Lets say the federal government deputized the whole country to enforce environmental regulations created by the state of California. "

You bring up a point which may be more applicable to our current situation than you realize. In the years running up to the (first) Civil War, the pro-slavery forces began to use the law in ways they should not have been allowed to, which of course inspired a backlash from their opponents, which led to increasing waves of anger and violence which eventually resulted in open conflict and war. And finally, large parts of the Constitution itself were completely re-written by the victors 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments. The old Constitution died, a New Constitution (very similar, but not the same) took it's place.

We look to be on a similar trajectory today.

Hasn't happened once since I went to these velcro adhering braces. Side benefit is they're waist reducing over time. They sort of limit range of motion so you really can't engage in any bad twisting motions.

My very point is that they were doing it before the 14th anyways. The 14th can't be the cause of the fugitive slave law since it didn't exist yet. Ergo gross federal overreach exists regardless. The federal government or any other government doesn't need legal technicalities to justify itself, nor in the case of objectionable behavior is legality a defense for the government(see France riots).

Prior to the 14th you had to worry about politics in other states. After the 14th you still have to worry about it.

There are always chiropractic believers nearby. I accept their testimony, which seems to be, "I got better!"

No doubt that is as true as it is for those who don't go to a chiropractor.

I have known people who regard their chiropractor as their primary physician. Got the flu? Off for an 'adjustment'. Your child having abdominal pains? Off to the chiropractor.

I always ask chiropractic fans if there is an 'adjustment' for hemorrhoids.

On the couple of occasions in my youth when I had a go at it, the most amusing 'therapy' was the little spring-loaded hicky that the guy would kind of randomly punch around on my back.

To each his own. It might be worth searching something like 'Died Chiropractor' to read about people who died while/after having their neck 'adjusted'.

248 I think more likely it's that human culture was sophisticated, we just don't have many preserved artifacts. "

A good point I've seen raised is that then, as now, most of humanity would have lived in close proximity to the Sea - at least within a few miles of it. (it's a constant source of food, for one thing) It's hard to imagine how different the world would have looked during the last Ice Age - one long plain connected what is now Great Britain to France, for example. (those maps are fun) When sea levels rose by 400 feet after the ice age ended, almost all evidence of any previous human activity would have been wiped out, except for those few groups that lived high away, up in the hills.

(probably would have left the survivors talking about Great Floods and lost cities, like Atlantis)

When I was a kid we had a garage/shed. I dreamed that a mouse was infesting that shed, but had been trapped in a blue bag. I went in to collect the mouse, but saw lots of other mice scurrying around. One running on the workbench, then a mother and a brood of mice on a shelf, others running through a duct on the ceiling, etc. There was a freestanding shelf with a baby on one of the shelves. The mice climbed to its shelf and were crawling over it. I started pulling them off, and as they were clawing me I thought "clearly the trap was inadequate, we must come up with another way. And I need to get this baby out of here".

I've no idea what the baby thing was about.

Posted by: rickb223 at December 06, 2018 10:29 AM (XVF2z)

288 I have known people who regard their chiropractor as their primary physician. Got the flu? Off for an 'adjustment'. Your child having abdominal pains? Off to the chiropractor.

I always ask chiropractic fans if there is an 'adjustment' for hemorrhoids.

On the couple of occasions in my youth when I had a go at it, the most amusing 'therapy' was the little spring-loaded hicky that the guy would kind of randomly punch around on my back.

To each his own. It might be worth searching something like 'Died Chiropractor' to read about people who died while/after having their neck 'adjusted'. "

My wife is one who goes to far in believing in Chiropractic for everything, I think. BUT - I have seen a local chiro who is very good at joints and muscles, and I credit him completely with saving me from the knee replacement surgery an orthopedist would have recommended. After a pulled quad, I had gotten to where I needed crutches, but am now completely recovered, with no surgery. So, they have their uses.

Has anyone ever been referred to one after hurting their back or having knee surgery? Again, I have no problem with them, but like I said, I just don't know anyone who has ever been able to stop going to one because something was "fixed."

I know lots of people who were hurt, went to physical therapy, and then no longer needed to.

I hate that straight-ticket option. It's lazy, and I don't trust the elections assholes to properly log the votes.

Plus, I wouldn't have had the pleasure of voting against another Bush spawn, after having lived through Dubya pissing my votes for him away.

One nice thing with Texas ballots is that everything is partisan. You get a definite party identification, unlike in CA where anything other than Fed and State legislature candidates leave you having to do a shitload of research before voting just to figure out their party affiliation.

343 "backwards, people should have someone to love during holidays. Being alone would be awful."

Willow, I've hated the holidays -- for myself -- for 25 years. Biggest heartbreak of my life on Christmas Day. And three years ago, my mom passed away the day after Christmas.

I love the season for kids, but for me it just means rejection, loss, and being alone.

One big change is the only important one -
without the oil to fuel our war machines provided by the East Texas Oil
Field during WW2, America would never have had an impact in that war,
and Hitler's Reich would still be ruling all of Europe today.



Which of course is the one Big Historical Change that Schwarzenegger would love to go back and ensure.

I know lots of people who were hurt, went to physical therapy, and then no longer needed to."

I did. Now of course they kept calling and saying "come back for an adjustment!!!" which is mainly a nice back rub and yank on your legs, so I just said "no, not today, maybe later, bye".

470 I almost did my Master's on Pre-historic art. (Looking back, I should have tho.) The complexity of cave paintings alone convinced me that the artists were no primitives. The cave paintings are carefully planned and executed. They designed and built scaffolding to paint them. They even took into account the sound effects and echos within the individual cave chambers to dictate the subject matter and its composition. These people were highly intelligent, just limited by their circumstances.

The 30 Masterpieces of the Ancient World series from the Great Courses is good and, yup, there is no way that the pre-history societies that made these were composed of people who grunted at each other.


One of the main reasons I love Ancient Aliens as much as I do is that it is a travelogue to places with all kinds of ancient monoliths and art and architecture that I did not know about. Ignore the it's totally aliens stuff and just watch and learn about these amazing places.

Becerra, who by then had been appointed to succeed Harris, and two of this deputies said the department took "reasonable steps to prevent and correct workplace harassment" by instituting procedures for harassment and training Hartley on the policy.

[Plaintiff] Hartley "unreasonably failed to utilize the procedures during the period of time, and after, the alleged harassment or discrimination was occurring," Becerra wrote. "Had Plaintiff taken reasonable effort to utilize these procedures Plaintiff's alleged harm, injury or damages would have been avoided, in whole or in part."

But on May 16, 2017, the department settled with Hartley for $400,000. It continued to deny her claims.
