Tonight's ONT is Bearly Adequate

So, today a bear did not hit me in the side of the face with his paw when I was out on a hike, and I did not survive by lying absolutely still playing dead for an hour.

Bear.jpg

This is, of course, a good thing, but since I came home from work with a pounding toothache (root canal scheduled on Monday- yippie) and lay down to take a nap where I dreamed the above, my first thought upon waking – This will make a wicked good story for the ONT – was not accurate. And, by the way, if you do a DuckDuckGo image search for “bear attack”, you will get a lot of really bloody pictures as a result.

The Reviews Are In!

Well, gee fellows, I don't know what to say.

Bear Porn

You know what the aforementioned DDGIS didn't reveal? Bear porn. Finally found an image search term that did not return any porn in the results. I didn't think there was any such thing, I mean, we know it exists:

WTF Canada?


Infanticide


Since the left has ripped away the curtain on their love for bloody infanticide recently, I've been thinking about other civilizations with the same predilections.

Did The Canaanites Really Sacrifice Their Children?


How is the abattoir that is Planned Parenthood any better? Oh, they don't usually make the mother watch and refuse to pay her if she cries, but we do it on a scale that would make Baal blush. I've prayed for God to heal our sick culture, but God doesn't have a track record of being real selective when he intervenes to punish wickedness. As an American this worries me....

Two on Healthcare

Venezuela crisis: A health system in a state of collapse

Hospital staff and families of patients say the health service has crumbled, neglected by the government over the last five years.
Now there is barely running water, let alone enough medicines, as the BBC's Orla Guerin reports.

I really and truly believe that all of the proponents for single payer -Michael Moore, Occasional-Cortex and their ilk- should be forced to receive their medical treatment in Caracas. I don't even think they should have to pay for it, as the native Venezuelans do. I just want them to receive the level of care that they so fervently desire to impose on this country. Puts my toothache in perspective, doesn't it? I'll get treatment Monday and be fine. These poor people...

Why you have no idea how much a surgery really costs before you get it

I've been in this industry for a long, long time, and I'm telling you that the biggest single thing that the government could do to reign in medical costs would be a law requiring absolute transparency in medical pricing. Every medical provider and facility would be required to publish, on site and online, a full price list for every procedure, and no payer, whether the individual, the government or an insurance company, would receive any kind of a discount. It would be easy to design an insurance marketplace to service such a system, here's one of the top of my head: Insurance would pay all medical costs above a certain threshold, say $5000 just for discussion's sake. For costs below that, the market would supply a variety of choices for the individual. Some would decide to self pay. Some might chose things like Direct Primary Care, while others might purchase fixed indemnity plans. (A fixed indemnity plan is an insurance plan that pays a specified amount for a specified service. For example, you might have a plan that pays, say, $70 for a doctor's visit. Remember, all docs would have their prices posted. You could find a Doc charging $70 and pay nothing out of pocket. You might prefer the doc that charges $85 and be comfortable with paying the $15 difference yourself, hell, you could even find a doc charging $60 and pocket the sawbuck.) One or two tweaks to prevent providers from gouging on cat care and Bob's your uncle. Simple, easy to understand, and watch medical costs fall. Problem solved, move on.

Be Careful What You Wish For

Two sisters bought DNA kits, and the results blew their family apart

I have a question about those DNA kits. How easy would it be to take one under a pseudonym? There's a house in my neighborhood that is empty right now. Could I submit a swab, put down my name as "Benjamin Dover" with that address, and then snag the results out of their mailbox when they come? I'd be curious to know some ancestry data, but am leery about having my DNA in a database tagged with my info. Anyone taken one of these tests who knows if that would work?

Hell yes. I agree completely, WeirdDave. Even doctors can't tell you what a procedure will cost.

Imagine what food shopping would be like with the current medical insurance situation. If you had good food insurance, you could fill your cart with filet mignon and pay a $20 copay at checkout. (But only in in-network supermarkets.)

Without insurance, you'd have no idea what anything cost until you got to the cash register.

59 I'm long past even trying, or even doing it for dark amusement, but it used to be fun to brain-freeze people (really, most people, not just the dimmer ones) by asking, innocently, as though just musing: hmm, what other service or product in my entire life have I "bought" without knowing the price, or having any choices, or even the info to make choices, except medical ones?


I've not looked too hard, but I wonder how much actual insurance is in current medical insurance (as opposed to cost-shifting, welfare, subsidies, etc.). Even before O-care, it could not have been 50%, at least in deeply stupid states like CA; of course now (at least in destroyed market segments) it's almost a comically small % of the cost.

--Watched a BBC doc about bears and there was a family in Minnesota who made bear burgers from black bears.

Never tasted them myself, but they swore by them.

All bears are omnivores, but black bears are probably more on the herbivore side so must make better burgers.

That's a great point. Again, I haven't tried it since I have good insurance through my employer, but I've heard that many providers will work with you if you tell them you'll pay in cash.

"Full price" is a myth. Since uninsured people rarely pay their medical bills (I think the figure I saw was 4%? not sure), the provider is going to write it off as a business loss, thus they want the "price" to be as high as possible to maximize the deduction.

Mountain lions, kind of scary. But as long as they don't jump on your back in total surprise, you can at least make them reconsider their actions.

Bears, though. Especially grizzly bears. I grew up in Wyoming. Two brothers I was acquainted with went elk hunting up near Yellowstone. Big sow grizzly appeared out of nowhere and charged the older brother. he managed to draw his .357, and fired into her midsection. Younger brother fired several rounds at her head with his .30-06. She backed away, bleeding, and just dazed enough to retreat. The rifle rounds hit her skull, but did not penetrate. Older brother had a shredded arm that required several surgeries. Younger brother thought the shots he fired did not hit square, and bounced off the top of the bear's head.

In any event. Bears are fucking terrifying. Grizzlies kill buffalo.

184 A story was posted not too long ago about identical twins sending in their dna to these companies. I believe they received varying results from the same company. And there was a bit different wording of results between the various companies. But I think they were pretty close overall and it was basically at the margins where there were discrepancies so it wasn't a case where one was 50% French 30% scandi and the other was 40% English and 40% Russian.

Just as a point of reference, the State of Alaska requires that you salvage and use the meat from any edible big game animal (by eating it yourself or giving it away).

Brown/grizzly bears and black bears (other than in the spring) are not considered edible under that regulation.

And they shit in the middle of the road to mark their territory, that doesn't smell especially, but the bears reek.

I have never seen one though, but one time I heard one running down my street just outside my bedroom window. Sounded like some kind of hellhound panting and grunting. Scared the shit out of me since I have blueberries growing right there, but he kept running.

What I meant was when they have a suspect and they get his/her DNA in whatever way usually they do, and then take that to 23andMe or whatever? Is that legal? They send it off to a lab anyway, or is analysis in that sense different?
If they get it, say, from a cigarette butt the suspect tosses out, he doesn't consent to them sending that off to the lab, so how is it different?

Again, not arguing for it, just curious. Seems to me the burden is more on the DNA service to tell the cops they can't do that, but then, do they know it's cops uploading?

What started as the go fund me page a month ago where I donated $80 (because it was suggested that if every one who voted for President Trump gave that amount, we'd fund the wall ourselves) is now a grassroots organization with more than $20 million and the donations keep coming.

They're going to begin building private sections soon and there's a board of directors that can do it, including Bannon, Kobach, Schilling, and Tancredo.

439 51 I've not tried it myself, but I have read for things like CAT scans or MRIs, it is literally cheaper to fly to Japan, pay cash for the procedure, spend a night in a hotel, and fly back the next day than it is to pay cash for the same procedure in America.

And Japan is not a third world country. I'm sure their medical technology is world-class.

Johns Hopkins charges my insurance company about $3500 for an MRI with contrast media. At the National Institutes of Health (NIH) the cost is not measured in dollars, but in guinea pig status. You must be enrolled in a clinical trial to receive treatment, but there is no charge for that treatment.

Not all MRI machines are created equal - I believe the higher the field strength, the better the image. At NIH I only rate the mid-size machines, at 3.5T. I don't know what it takes to get scheduled for the larger 7T and 10T machines. There are also software differences between machines, but I don't know what effect they have.

I read a story about smart light bulbs storing wifi passwords and then trashed, and then people can recover that password from the bulb.

My first question was: why and the fuck would you need a smart lightbulb? A smart lamp would make more sense. Why the hell would you need a smart bulb?

Veterinarians give a range. A doctor should be able to give range price for his charge for most individual procedures.

A lot of procedures include bills for each doctor involved. Hospital bills are incredibly complicated. I have to admit, I don't even like looking at the billing from a hospital.

518 It probably isn't too hard to keep your anonymity taking a DNA test. Anyone can buy them for gifts and they don't match the kit they send to your credit card anyway. When you take the test for the Ancestry kit just make a fake name/account and use a secure e-mail like protonmail. Always log into Ancestry or your e-mail through a service which masks your IP. If the results come in an e-mail you don't need an address. If they snail mail then it is a little more difficult but doable. I don't think Ancestry required an address IIRC from when my in-laws took the test.

Your vulnerability is that they will be able to tell if you are related to someone already in their database if they bother to do that sort of analysis, but they won't be sure which relative you are. The ancestry stuff is pretty useless, but you can download your DNA from Ancestry and upload it anonymously to free sites which will give you health info. And of course, having a copy means if there are any advances in the future linking genes to traits or diseases you can go back and check.

536 The penis bone on an adult make polar bear averages around 7.3 inches.

Scientists have uncovered fossils that suggest some prehistoric bears that roamed the earth 5-12 million years ago had penis bones that were significantly longer, averaging around 9.2 inches.

Compared with today's bears, this ancient creature, named Indarctos arctoides, had a surprisingly large penis bone that suggests it had infrequent but long-lasting sex sessions, the study found. And the females may have used penis size to assess their mates.

I believe the theory as that the longer penis bone was necessary to keep the female's reproductive tract open and in an optimal position for fertilization during longer mating sessions.

The relative infrequency of the mating is attributed to the larger ranges and theorized lower population densities for the male bears.

The GND reads like a middle-schooler's civics class paper. That stuff couldn't be accomplished in 100 years let alone 10, even if the majority of the population fell for it.

I know AOC has barely graduated from her training bra, but the kind of idiocy revealed in that document can't be chalked up merely to youth & inexperience. That any Dem with the least bit of political savvy gave that dreck a second look says a lot about the Dem party.

612 516 I mean, if they rush to impeach Fairfax, they have not even brought charges or anything here. No trial. Nothing. He sounds like a grade A asshole, but all this looks like is a lynching. "

The beauty part of this clusterfark (for us) is they got caught behind the curve, and they're scrambling. The only reason to me that makes sense for them to rush this impeachment thing is if they KNOW (and I think they do) what women 3, 4, and 5 are going public soon, and their stories are gonna be even worse than what we know already.

Apparently everyone in the Va party has known Fairfax was a scumbag for years, now, but they thought they could keep it under wraps. Now that the wraps are off, there's no doubt about his guilt - they've known it for a long long time.

617 The shape of the human penis head is apparently optimized to rake out any semen that might already be in there.

....

That is built on the premise that the penis in question can penetrate deeper than the level of the existing semen.

In Kristol's case, it more likely that his penis shape and relative size would only serve to plunge existing semen deeper into the cavity, lowering his chances a genetic success.

Veterinarians give a range. A doctor should be able to give range price for his charge for most individual procedures.

A lot of procedures include bills for each doctor involved. Hospital bills are incredibly complicated. I have to admit, I don't even like looking at the billing from a hospital.
Posted by: nerdygirl at February 08, 2019 10:32 PM (+lVUW)


THIS. Vet bills are understandable and affordable. I spent a lot of money on my late cat Kira in the last months of her life, but it was nothing I couldn't handle and it wasn't a surprise.

That is mainly because veterinarians tend to work on a cash basis, without the complications of insurance. They actually do practice price transparency.

(Of course, "pet insurance" is becoming a thing now. Ugh. That will not improve matters.)

674 As for the DNA being used to solve crimes -

What they are doing is using a database which has public dna that people have uploaded.

People use these 23andme type services and then they download their DNA data, and upload to another database, GEDmatch.

That database just looks at relationships and you can give a name, or just an email address (I think) so this part is separate from the testing, and more private since it is all online with no credit card.

Then LEO submits dna to GEDmatch and gets a list of close relatives which they use to narrow down the suspects.

The fact that at least one other person helped to write, revise, and disseminate it just flabbergasts me. I mean, this is f*cked up sh*t. Not just because it's socialist claptrap, but because it's SO removed from reality. (On second thought, I guess that is the definition of socialist claptrap).

And yet Dems claim to be the "reality-based" party, and conservatives are "science deniers".

Got it.

Fits with an interesting Hans-Herman Hoppe lecture I was listening to this morning about how Marx got the general idea that history is a series of class struggles right, but what he got wrong was that both "capitalists" and "proletariat" belong to a productive exploited class and the state is where you find the exploiter class.
I would add that all of the state's coteries like the media and all of the directly and indirectly subsidized make-work jobs also belong to the exploiter class, and the election of Trump represents the possible beginnings of a "Revolutionary Class Consciousness" of sorts.

704 While I never really envisioned discussing ursine scrota on a Friday night with strangers, I've always been perplexed by something mentioned in the Journals of Lewis & Clark, while they were not trained scientists, they were pretty keen observers. I think it was Lewis who described the grizzly bears scrotum as having two separate pouches, something that modern scientists are at a loss to explain. Maybe some subspecies that is extinct? Who knows.

The first stories they heard about the grizzley, from the Indians, made them apprehensive. They hadn't seen any yet. Then they had an easy example and decided that this type of bear was no big deal. Then they started running into big grizzley bears. Unlike black bears, they didn't run away. They got a sniff of them coming and would turn around and run at them full speed and attack. We associate grizzly bears with mountain wilderness but they are basically a plains animal. An earlier "Cave bear" is extinct, even larger than the grizzly. We can thank our ancestors no doubt.

BUT in fact we are now working off of the Harvey Weinstein paradigm - IN literal, actual, soon to be proven fact, Lt. Governor Fairfax is a Serial Rapist, and he has been a Serial Rapist for at least 20 years, and the other Dems around him have KNOWN he is a Serial Rapist.

And that's why they have no choice now but to dump him as fast as they can, no matter what the consequences are for the black vote. The time when they had a choice passed them by long, long ago.

The short faced cave bear was an animal too huge, too big to even imagine - I'm sure quite a few of our ancestors were eaten by them, but I doubt many were killed by them. Even on all fours, it was taller than anyone reading this, and standing on its hind legs it would have stood 12 feet tall.

Almost certainly died out because a predator that big needs huge amounts of food to keep going, and when all the megafauna died out at the end of the ice ages, there was no way they could find enough to eat anymore.

I'm not sure if I like that.

It shows good taste for a marketing department, for once. But... it's Acura. That should be on ad for motorcycles, possibly muscle cars, and maybe nothing else.

They've practically outlawed the Easter Bunny. These are not well people. Mean, petty, and vindictive. The old school liberals were educated and erudite, and had good taste in many areas. During the cold war there was a kind of rivalry even, over who had the better symphony orchestras - Russia, or the US, etc. My lefty college professor auntie used to take us to museums and ballet and symphonies and art galleries and restaurants, and "cultural" things.

Near as I can tell that kind of thing is all but dead. Replaced by a seething mob of imbeciles. Normal people are the liberals now, in any case. The rioters are rioting for the status quo. Hm.

795 The current abortion/infanticide controversy takes me back to when I delivered a speech to a local salon group on how to end the problem. I got the idea after reading Jonathan Swift's "A Modest Proposal" to my girlfriend as an example of British satire -- and decided to take it one step further.

In my speech, I proposed that, to maintain its state license, every abortion clinic must include a restaurant, and that every woman desiring an abortion would get a free meal -- the principal ingredient being her aborted child, cooked and served to order. I mentioned several methods of preparation, my most elaborate being to marinate the child in red wine, roasted in a honey glaze, and served with new potatoes and carrots.

When I finished, my assembled listeners -- most of whom were Unitarian or agnostic, and fiercely pro-choice -- sat there in silence. Then one of them said, "But you can't do that," almost in a whisper.

"Why not?" I said. "Why waste a good source of protein? Besides, as you said, it's not a baby yet. It's just a clump of cells. But excellent squab. So why shouldn't you eat it?"

"Well . . . it's just not right. Who would want to eat a . . . a . . ." None of them would dare say "baby," but I could tell that it was what they were all thinking.

Needless to say, I wasn't a popular guy. The room was a lot cooler when I stepped down from the lectern. But I had made them think about the controversy in a new way -- and some of them were never the same after that, thank God . . .

And, if there's ever a contraction in the market for a given type of designer, which there definitely is from time to time and place to place, then you have the skills to feed yourself if you can't find enough work in design alone.

Reese's character starts out as a total airhead, concerned only with fashion, the size of her engagement ring and the size of her house. Then her beau dumps her, and she seeks her revenge by showing she has grit AND an actual brain but a continuing fascination with fuzzy pink crap and fashion.And then she wins the day and a court case by proving her insights into people and their current habits is superior to that of Dumb Old White Guys.Well media, I have fast forwarded to the end of Legally Donkey-Brained, and y'all are in for a big ole disappoint.

Posted by: Evasiveboat42 at February 08, 2019 11:57 PM (Ct8k6)


Because it's actually named the "Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways", and only referred to as "the Interstate Highway system" as an abbreviation. The point is to be able to move troops around quickly in the event of an emergency. In both Alaska and Hawaii, there are valid deployment contingencies that are facilitated by the existence of modern highways.

If I remember what I heard it is something like one mile of straight road every 5 miles or so. But yeah out in the Rockies that may not be the case. And that was to 1950s standards I think because it was the "Eisenhower Interstate System" that was being built to that standard. No idea when that ended or if it is still built to it.

Well, I'm watching the replay, and he did say that. But even more over-the-top, was the previous segment.

In that one, Carlson plays some CNN talking heads, Black Hole Lemon and some others, talking about how the Bezos stuff was probably one of two things:

1.) Orangeman using the Deep State to go after Bezos (and presumably the WaPo, which is the Light That Keeps Democracy Alive), through his winged monkeys at the National Enquirer; or

b.) the Saudis, (presumably because the Courageous Truth-Seeking Purveyor of Real News and Dick Pics Jeff Bezos had dared expose their plot to fillet Intrepid Journalist and American Citizen Jamal Khashoggi), through Orangeman's winged monkeys at the National Enquirer.

913 And I have the world's most loving six pound kitty, purring away on my lap as I sit here n' type.

She is SO utterly BLACK, it's nearly impossible to get a recognizable photo of her. She's like those carbon nano-tubes that absorb light.

But she loves SO very much, and expresses it through those emerald green eyes, loud purrs and kitty chirps, burrs, meows and other vocalizations.

And no cat has ever "burrowed" deep into a lap as she does.

But you can't pick her up and "hold her". She will object.

"She Decides", is the hallmark phrase of her personality, and "decide" she does, as she wills.

Being merely human, I am powerless but to obey.

On broken picture tube
It fits the attitude
If you could see yourself
You put you on a shelf
Your verbal masturbate
Promise to nauseate
Today I'll play the part of non-parent
Not make a hundred rules
For you to know about yoursef
Not lie and make you believe
What's evil is making love
and making friends
and meeting God you're own way
The right way

To see
To bleed
Cannot be taught
In turn
You're making us
Fucking hostile

922 901 Pretty sure it is 33. 30 and 33 are both in Fort Wayne Indiana but 30 goes through Lima and stays a bit north while 33 starts going south and passes through Columbus. Either way it's one of them that I have seen the sign on yet neither are Interstates.
Posted by: Buzzion at February 09, 2019 12:41 AM (+wrO0)

30 stays north of Columbus, I'm just off 30 at the moment. I've taken 30 all the way into Indianato show a dog. 33 I have no idea, but I don't pay that much attention. It takes me almost an hour to reach an interstate so using the US routes makes sense for national defense.

924 Speaking of extinctions etc., here's an interesting story:

Average Daughter, who just graduated with a degree in wildlife biology, had a fellowship a couple of summers back with San Diego Zoo Global (the zoo's conservation organization). She was doing field work, studying the feeding patterns of terns and snowy plovers. Much of her work was done on a couple of military bases, which of course had strict requirements as to what she could and could not do.

One day while working on one of the bases, she saw a couple of little beetles mating. Tiger beetles. This was the first time she'd seen them, and she took a picture. Subsequently she developed a keen interest in tiger beetles; seeking them out, photographing them, sharing the photos on iNaturalist and on (believe it or not) a tiger beetle Facebook group.

About 6 months ago she got an email from someone who'd seen her photo of the mating tiger beetles. He said he studies them, and he wrote a paper on them. Would she like to read the paper? Of course, she said. He asked where she took the photo, but she was reluctant to tell him because technically she wasn't supposed to take photos on the base. But he guessed where it was and she confirmed.

Then, about two months ago, she got another email from a different researcher. He's from Oregon, but he works for some organization working with endangered species. He said - get this - that that subspecies of tiger beetle was believed to have been extinct, the last sighting of one was in 1961!

Average Daughter was thrilled! Then, she was terrified, because technically she wasn't allowed to take photos on base, or at least she wasn't supposed to post them for all to see on the internet. The guy from Oregon continued to email her, all excited about contacting the people she worked with at SD Zoo Global, gaining access to the base to do some research, etc.

Average Daughter gave her Zoo Global contact a heads up, to let him know that he might get some inquiries, and also to see what his reaction was; would he be cool with it? Mildly perturbed? Pissed off? Complicating things, she was applying for a research job with Zoo Global and was afraid this might adversely affect her chances.

By the time he replied a couple of days later, she was a nervous wreck. But, he was thrilled! He (Zoo Global guy) knew the first guy who contacted her (he works at the SD Museum of Natural History). Second guy who contacted her also knows first guy (the world of tiger beetle geeks is a small one, apparently). Zoo Global guy said that, if she got the job, he'd arrange a meet with the museum guy, and she might be able to be involved with research on the "extinct" beetle... on her own time, of course.

Anyway, an interesting story to me, at least.

Oh yeah: She got the job.

I think the passenger railroads took all their business, and the freight pigeons took all their habitat.

Seriously, though? Maybe there really weren't all that many, just a few very huge flocks that migrated a lot. And perhaps they could only exist in huge flocks, and once the size of the flocks dropped below a critical level, they ceased to reproduce, or fell victim to disease or predators.

948 Someone more resourceful that I, in terms of 'net research, ought to be able to dig up (rhetorically, not physically), the sections of Interstate Highways which were built to "runway" standards.

The excavation, base materials, reinforcing steel, depth of concrete pour, width and PROHIBITION of construction of overhead obstructions, will all serve as "the tell".

Those will be relatively remote, rural stretches of highway, too.

Lots of those East of the Rockies.

Viewing satellite photos might provide a clue, certainly vis-a-vis the lack of overhead signs. And heavier base prep might show up in width of shoulder, etc. Also, I would expect those stretches to be close to level with sections of flat ground off-highway, so that planes could be staged for takeoff and landing.

985 Individually, Starlings can be absolute comedians. Circus clowns. Entertainers.

Being of the Covid family, they're in with Crows, Magpies and the lot of 'em.

Highly intelligent, capable of learning from others of their flock. And the larger males can be beautiful, with the oil on their feathers glistening as iridescent shimmering colors on a black background, much like oil on dark waters.

En Masse though?

PESTS. FEATHERED LOCUSTS!

And they shit EVERYWHERE.

Don't even begin to ask about the noise of them roosting in trees, on power lines and wherever else the fuck suits them in the half hour before sundown.

Which ever English sonofabitch brought 'em here, needs to be quite thankful that 'ees already dead.

Elsewise, I WOULD DELIVER HIM TO THAT STATE, with great joy, glee and elan, in such a way that his remains would serve to be Starling fodder, till the Sun baked his bones down to powder.

For the fast Acuras, I'd pull from the Gran Turismo soundtracks from the 90s. Maybe the "Carmina Burana" for the NSX.

Highly intelligent, capable of learning from others of their flock. And the larger males can be beautiful, with the oil on their feathers glistening as iridescent shimmering colors on a black background, much like oil on dark waters.

En Masse though?

So you know.

One of my businesses was assisting medical doctors from Hungary, Romania, etc. who wanted to leave.

The first step was usually to the UK or Ireland, because their medical credentials were automatically accepted (EU rules). And both the UK and Irish govt health systems are perpetually short of MDs.

I encouraged one nice young Hungarian pediatrician not to take up a position in one of those places in Ulster where, even in her position, a side must be chosen.


She ended up in north England, and I warned her, that she would be the only European in the entire department. And as a woman, the only one without a headscarf.

Ah. Indeed a flawed system.

There are some parallels with healthcare. For one, the massive rise of the administrator class in healthcare has been one of the driving forces in the system being so quickly brought to the brink of collapse. Not the infrastructures and logistics as in Caracas, but a more insidious takeover of the actual practice of medicine. Just as school admin keeps good teachers from teaching good, so to speak.

Secondly, I think medicine will parallel teaching in the sense of home-schooling and alternative venues. It's going to take a while though. Small practices, under the radar. Cash up front, no insurance, etc.

He sat there like a bump on a frog's ass. After years of them telling us to "just keep doing what you're doing." and allowing us discretion to do what needed to be done.

Also not a joke:

If you consider a typical physician career to be 30 years (give or take), retirement three years earlier than planned amounts to a 10% reduction in workforce productivity.

Granted, not 100% of docs are retiring 3-5 years earlier than originally planned, but I don't think the number is insignificant. It will be felt. Especially as those docs are the ones with the most experience and track record of having walked the walk.

I was told of a bear close to school grounds so went to check it out, didn't see anything on my way out, but coming back thought to look up, and there was a beautiful black bear with a white cross on his chest up in a tree.

Palinka is Hungarian slivovitz, usually from plums, peaches, or apricots, but there are about 55 kinds (Hungarians can make booze or good soup out of water and rocks, if needed, and depending on mood).

Kalinka is a brand of vodka sold in Hungary, named after a Russian song.

Posted by: AmericanKestrel at February 09, 2019 02:01 AM (IDhUW)


I have Reggie, who is 11 years old. But he has the unfortunate tendency to relieve himself on the living room carpet instead of the litter box.

He seems to have trouble going up and down the stairs, so I moved a litter box into the living room. That has helped, but every couple of weeks he drops a deuce on the rug anyway.

I would like to adopt another kitten, but I can't under the circumstances because I don't want him to think that this is normal behavior.

1174 I asked the Horde an hour ago to suspend its judgment because the facts were not clear, but I do not feel that any reason now exists why we should not form our own opinions upon this pitiful episode.

The bedtimes of the Moron commenters compelled the ONT denizens at the shortest notice to cover a flank to the thread's end more than 30 miles in length. Otherwise all would have been cut off, and all would have shared the fate to which Weirddave had condemned the finest commenters his ancient and honourable Friday post had ever formed.

So in doing this and in exposing this flank, as anyone who followed the operations on the thread will see, contact was lost between the West and two out of the three Time Zones forming the First Horde Army, who were still farther from either coast than we were, and it seemed impossible that any large number of comprehensible comments could reach the Thread. Therefore, all necessary measures have been taken.

The secret is getting off the road until the idiots take each other out, or in this case, just surrender.

After a few hours, the roads are ready to go for the most part, just stay away from the many hills.

My understanding was that they were, indeed, hunted to extinction and I believe it had to do with the way they migrated - or how they flew - or how they reacted to humans - I can't recall - but I do recall reading somewhere that they were easy prey and everyone, from the village idiot catching one with his hat, to a seasoned hunter with one of those ridiculous bird guns, could catch them and have a really tasty dinner.

I'll look into it - it does seem odd - right? You would think SOME would survive. But then again, have you seen a Dodo or an Ivory-Billed Woodpecker lattely?

1205 oh - and Grizzley bears? They are really tough, agressive and scary animals - particularly for folks like Lewis & Clark who had only seen black bear. Now - a black bear, if caught off guard, or with cubs may attack - but usually they run teh f*ck away as soon as they scent a man.

A Grizzley? Man, shman. A grizzley sees a man and says: "You want a piece of me? Bring it, monkey boy!"

In the old scout manuals the rules for bears were basically:

See a black bear? Make a wide circle around them and or slowly retreat from the area and choose anther path adn enjoy your day!

Se a grizzley bear? two options:

1) Pray for a swift, relatively painless death.

2) Leave the area at a swift pace, forget about hiking that day, or ever again, go home, hide under your bed and hope the grizzle does not follow the ancient Sicilian law of "vendetta."

Ok - I may be exaggerating - but it was close to that.

Lewis and Clark were, from reading their journals etc., amazed at the power and aggression of grizzlies, and having seen them in the wild - so the f*ck am I.

1216 Btw - already had seen the Battle of the Coral Sea video - the early days of true carrier warfare were really dependent on blind luck. Nimitz understood carrier deployment,tactics and combat better than anyone else on planet earth before (and perhaps since) and it showed. I know you folks in the horde will be surprised - but I have had quite the career on stage both as an actor, song and dance man, musician, and a producer of amateur and semi professional theatre. Once produced and starred in a production of South Pacific about ten years ago ( Played Luther Billis) I had every principal actually read Tales of the South Pacific, mostly because, after I read it I was overcome with how touch and go it was at that time (the play takes place just before the battle of the Coral Sea) - coulda' gone either way. I also told the cast that I had been to Texas to see Nimitz birthplace in Frdericksburg Texas, which I had, I made a point to see where the greatest naval tactician of the modern age was born, above a store on main street in a town almost 1,000 miles from the ocean/Gulf of Mexico. "You don't understand, this was the knife edge and these people were, literally, on the very keen of the blade" I said to the assembled cast at our first through. " to find love, to find civilization, to find altruistic sacrifice is what this play, and the book, is all about."

Anyway - Coral Sea and Midway are great examples of how the US won the only real battle of aircraft carriers and those victories are the main reason why no one dares challenge us on the front of mastery of the seas ( a lesson we ignore to our own peril). (oh and btw, the Russian carrier and the Chinese one? Please - jokes the lot of them - don't make me laugh)

The tame bear in the video doesn't have to dig for his food so the claws stay long - that is a seriously fat bear.

1238 Concerning the Battle of the Coral Sea. Aircraft carriers are huge potential bombs because of the massive amount of aviation fuel they must carry. The loss of CV-2 Lexington resulted from aviation fuel piping being ruptured and 100 octane gasoline leaking into the bilges. The fumes from that highly volatile fuel is what caused the explosions that did her in. After that experience the US Navy installed systems which allowed the aviation fuel lines to be quickly purged of fuel and pressurized with CO2 when attack was imminent. It was a crucial damage control trick the Japanese never caught on to and a big reason why later in the war US carriers survived much heavier damage than the Lexington succumbed to.
